Between the covers book club

Hello lovely ladies ;)

Gotta’ love the approach of summer here in the Southern hemisphere! Personally, I can’t wait :) On top of that I had an awesome reading week!

This week I read:

Tyler by Jo Raven was intense! A little dark but I loved this well-written little gem. I just adore finding a new author that I enjoy and then bask in the delicious luxury of having a whole slew of her books to look forward to! I’m going to give this one my Best of the Best award!

Play by Kylie Scott was a fantastic surprise. I certainly enjoyed book one in the Stage Dive series but this one, book two, was fantastic! I LOVE Mal. He’s definitely my new book boyfriend. He was funny, infuriating, arrogant and, of course, a hot tattooed drummer! LOL! Another Best of the Best from me!

Currently I’m reading:

I’ve not decided on my next read. I think I might be going with the bikers next…. ;)

This week I read:

Tempting the Bodyguard by Jennier Armentout, book three in the Gamble brothers series was a great read. I enjoyed the action/heat combination that she delivers so well.

Allure by Lacey Weatherford was on Amazon’s “top sellers of the year so far” list so I thought I’d give it a go but it’s a big NO, from me.

Currently I’m reading:

Tyler by Jo Raven, book two in the Inked Brotherhood series, is a first for me from this author. It’s another of those series that you don’t need to read in order.

On my shelf I have:

Lead and Play by Kylie Scott, book two and three of the Stage Dive series.

Between the covers book club and competition time!

Hiya, ladies ;)

I’ve got some fun to share with you on this happy Sunday, but first, the book club….

This week, as I was fighting a cold I had LOTS of time to read:

Lick by Kylie Scott, book one in the Stage Dive series was great. Can’t go wrong with hot, tattooed rockers, right?

And Easy lie by Carmen Willow was an awesome read. Nice and dramatic, a fantastic recommendation.

Vain by Deborah Bladon, part one and part two was interesting. Firstly, I HATE when writers do this, basically publish a few chapters as a stand alone book and then split them into three or four books, but the story was intriguing. The male protagonist is a sexy, arrogant ass and part two leaves you on a horrific cliffy, leaving you gasping for part three.

There’s Wild, Then There’s You by M Leighton was another good read. Typical of her writing style and the high standard we’ve come to expect of her books.

 Currently I’m reading:

Tempting The Bodyguard by Jennifer L Armentrout, book three of the Gamble Brothers series. I like this series and you don’t have to read them in order.

 On my shelf I have:

Thank you, Jo for sharing this – a little bit of Kiwi humour; Fifty Shades and your momma! LOL!

Then some happy news for my New York readers:

The good people of 50 Shades! The Musical Parody has given me two tickets to their hilarious, titillating show to give away!

Hey, girls ;)

My week was crazy busy and my weekend even more so, but at least I managed a few great reads ;)

This week I read:

Rogue by Katy Evans, believe it or not, was even more intense than the first installment of the Real series. I adored her debut, Real; book one in the series, but this one (book four) took the intensity to a whole new level. I loved it, and in an unprecedented second week in a row, I’m handing out my Best of the Best award.

Betting On Grace by Nicole Edwards, on the other hand, I found lacking of her usual sexy magic. While it had all the ingredients for a delicious read – cowboys and menage, it just didn’t do it for me.

Currently I’m reading:

l

Lick by Kylie Scott, book one in the Stage Dive series. This one came highly recommended and so far it’s looking good. Well written in exciting language. Here’s a little glimpse at David – just because… ;)

On my shelf…. I have too many to mention. I’ll put them up as I read them ;) LOL!
