Weekly Reading Update 5/5 - 5/12/16!

I was on vacation this past week, so you'd think I would have read a lot, right? Nope! We were down in Disney World, so my family and I were running all over the parks. I may have also vegged out at the pool, reading a lot of Star Magazines. Sometimes you just need some mindless reading material while hanging out poolside. So now on to what I did manage to read!

First up was Brave Enough by M. Leighton, the third book in the Tall, Dark, and Dangerous series. I read and reviewed this one for Romance Reviews Today, and it was definitely worth a read. It might actually be my favorite of the series, I'm not sure. And even better, it can be read as a standalone, so if you want to give it a shot - I'd say go for it! But be sure to check out Strong Enough (book 1), and Tough Enough (book 2).

Next up was Alex by Sawyer Bennett. I have been a part of a Facebook group called The Locker Room for a while now, and Sawyer Bennett is one of the coaches (aka administrators). I love what I have read by the other authors, so I'm working my way through all the coaches' backlists. I can't believe I've never read anything by Sawyer Bennett before! Alex was a fun read, and I can't wait to continue with the next book in the series, thanks to my library's digital collection.

I also read Never Let You Go by Monica Murphy, the direct sequel to Never Tear Us Apart. Oh man, if you want an emotional read that will mess you up - look no further. This is the third series I've read by Monica Murphy (I didn't finish the other series, but I am working my way through them), and I'm fairly positive she just sits around thinking up ways to torture her poor, innocent characters. And she's just so good at it! She breaks me heart every time, and I love her for it all the same. It's hard to review such an emotional read - but I somehow managed it. You'll be able to see my review at Romance Reviews Today!

Just yesterday, because I couldn't put it down, I read the entirety of Make Me Sin by J. T. Geissinger. Okay, if you really need a good cry, look no further. This is definitely going on my wish-list, because it was just.. so good. Painful, but good. Like sometimes when you get a massage and it hurts, but it's a good hurt? I already own the first book, Sweet As Sin, because that's another one I couldn't put down. And now I'm desperate for Brody's book, which better be next (and SOON) or I will start tearing my hair out!

And because I'm still in my rockstar phase, I moved immediately to Taking The Lead by Cecelia Tan. As of typing this post (Thursday afternoon) - I haven't actually finished it yet, but it's oh-so-good so far. I've been procrastinating all of my unpacking because I just can't bring myself to put this one down yet. You're lucky I took a break to type up this post!

So that's it for me this week. Anything I read on your TBR? Or have any spectacular reads to share?

Happy Reading!

  ABOUT EASY KISSES: The Boudreaux Series. Sexy. Intriguing. Easy. Simon Danbury, an internationally sought after motivational speaker, helps women from all walks of life with love, self-esteem, dating and career building skills. Handsome, witty and wealthy, Simon seemingly has everything a man could want. But appearances can be deceiving. While Simon may have the answers for millions of women all over the world, when it comes to his own love life, he’s a giant, sexy mess. Divorced, and convinced that he’ll never love again, the very last thing he expects is one Charly Boudreaux. Charly doesn’t want to be at this seminar in the middle of nowhere, but her sister made her go. She’s the one who has her life together. Great career, amazing family, nice home, and loyal friends. So what if she doesn’t have a man? She doesn’t need one. If she’s learned anything in her almost thirty years, it’s that men are more trouble than they’re worth. And they have a nasty habit of breaking your heart into a million tiny pieces. So she’ll sit through all of Simon’s touchy feely crap and go home and get on with her life. Except Simon isn’t really spouting crap, and when he smiles at her, the butterflies are ridiculous. Never mixing business with pleasure, Simon finds Charly, a bright spot in a universe that’s been dark for too long. But will he be able to resist her? And why would he want to?

Exclusive Excerpt: Wrapping his arm around me, pulling me tighter, he lowers his head and whispers into my ear. “You’re not here for anyone other than me, short stuff. Now why don’t you finally admit it to yourself, ditch this guy, and go out on a date with me.” I let out an exaggerated sigh. He’s been saying stuff like this since day one. “Keep wishin’, player.” Leaning in even closer, I feel his grip tightening on my hip, his lips on the shell of my ear. “One day, you’re gonna go out with me, Renee. One day you’re gonna say you love me. One day you’re gonna brush your hot mouth across mine, across my hard-.” “Renee?” Oh. God. No. This can’t be happening. As soon as I hear the voice, I instantly close my eyes and pull myself from Ben’s tight grasp abruptly and look for the voice. David is standing merely four feet away, eyes moving between Ben and myself, confusion laced deep in them. “Am I interrupting?” Before David is even finished speaking, Ben places his hand on my shoulder and tries to pull me in close. The movement screams ownership, so much so that I want to pull a Wicked Witch of the West and dissolve into a puddle on the floor, removing myself completely from the situation. To bad we’re not in Kansas any more. When I finally think to say something, Ben beats me to the punch. “We’re getting ready to head up to our room.” Oh. My. God. Saying this in front of my date sends me over the edge. I pull my elbow forward and slam it back into his ribs as hard as I can. Satisfaction rings in my ears as I hear him grunting in pain. Unbelievably, every spot on my body was remotely touching his, protests the loss of heat. Traitorous body.

Awakened by a Demoness by Felicity Heaton
Awakened by a Demoness (Eternal Mates Romance Series Book 10)
Felicity Heaton
Asteria of the Second Legion of demons has messed up. Royally. With a capital everything. Certain that her dark lord is about to end her in the most painful way imaginable, she’s stunned when the fallen angel offers her an uncharacteristic shot at redemption—and determined not to fail him again. With her life on the line, she sets out on a mission that sounds easy but proves to be far from it when a hot slice of angelic eye candy comes storming into her life, stirring dangerous desires and tempting her more than any male before him.
Fifth Commander of the Echelon, the highest order of angels in Heaven and those responsible for hunting demons, he will allow nothing to stand in the way of fulfilling the mission he began close to a century ago so he can finally return to his home. On the verge of securing the half-breed he has been hunting, he can almost taste victory—until a sassy demoness struts into his life, awakening wicked needs and forbidden hungers that will test him to his limit.
When their mission brings them on a collision course, can they fight the fierce heat of the passion that blazes between them to claim a victory for their side or will it burn their resistance to ashes and set their hearts on fire with a love both forbidden and eternal?
