Georgette's Weekly Book Reads 08/22 to 08/28

Hello Everyone!! Hope everyone had a great read week!    I didn't have too much reading done but those I did read, were really good books!  I also had the honor of reading the ARC of Retribution, book 4 in the Mystic Series by BC Burgess and it was amazing! But I'll tell you all about it later.

Retribution (Mystic #4)

Here are my reads this week:

Aug 22nd -
Adam, Enough Said - This Can't Be Happening #3 - Lynda LeeAnne

http://www.amazon.com/Adam-Enough-Said-Happening-ebook/dp/B00EN2DJCM/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1377708125&sr=1-1&keywords=adam+enough+said

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/adam-enough-said-lynda-leeanne/1116523664?ean=2940148636564
This was the third book in this series.  I enjoyed Adam much more than I did the previous books!  These alpha males really just do something tingly to me.  He was not as mean or sharp as Tony was in book 2 nor was he as mushy as Landyn was in book 1.  Adam really had it all.  His love and devotion for Mia was really felt here.  I was very happy with this book.  I gave it 4.25 stars and out of all the books in the series, this one is definitely my favorite...

Aug 23rd - 
Losing Him - Mitchell Family #8 - Jenn Foor

http://www.amazon.com/Losing-Mitchell-Family-Series-ebook/dp/B00EOKKVG0/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1377708520&sr=1-1&keywords=losing+him+jennifer+foor

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/losing-him-jennifer-foor/1116561322?ean=2940148361879
Damn you Jenn Foor!! You made me cry throughout this ENTIRE book!! Moreover, you made me like that spiteful and conniving bitch Heather! You made me love her and feel sorry for her and want everything for her...how could you do that??  I wasn't prepared for all you put us through in this book! I gave this book 4.25 stars, if you haven't read this series, you really should, those Mitchell boys are f'ing HOT!!

Aug 24th - 
Wethering the Storm - The Storm #2 - Samantha Towle

http://www.amazon.com/Wethering-Storm-The-Series-ebook/dp/B00AQM870C/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1377708564&sr=1-1&keywords=wethering+the+storm+by+samantha+towle

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/wethering-the-storm-samantha-towle/1115158275?ean=9781477805053
Jake Wethers...yummy!! This is the conclusion to Jake and Tru's story.  With it brings a lot of love, not so much understanding and a little heartache.  This story definitely gave you the final happily ever after you wanted for Tru and Jake.  It also brought Simone and Denny their HEA... I rated this book 4.5 stars and if you read the first book, you definitely need to read the second!

Aug 25th - 
Arsen - Mia Asher

http://www.amazon.com/Arsen-broken-love-story-ebook/dp/B00EPZUSYY/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1377708818&sr=1-1&keywords=arsen+a+broken+love+story

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/s/arsen-a-broken-love-story?store=allproducts&keyword=arsen+a+broken+love+story
This book had my emotions really all over the place.  I really just wanted to smack some serious sense into Cathy in this book! She has this wonderful husband who loves and cherishes her and what does she do??? She totally fucks it up!! Cheating stories are really hard for me.  This wasn't easy to get through.  My heart bled over and over again for Ben in this book.  Arsen was a good guy but not that good!! I would've never done what Cathy did.  I would've been more vocal with those who loved me, let them help me...I don't know...as I said, this book was difficult for me.  I gave this book 3.5 stars because although I didn't like the cheating, the book was very well written and overall it was a good story.  If you have a problem with cheating, do NOT read this book.  

August 27th - 
Retribution - The Mystic Series #4 - BC Burgess
Retribution (Mystic #4)
This book was AMAZING!!!! I absolutely adored it!! I love Layla and Quin!! Here is my goodreads review on the book..
's review
Aug 28, 13  ·  edit

Read from August 26 to 27, 2013

Received an ARC from the author.

FIVE AMAZING STARS!!! WOW!! This book blew me away!! Such love and emotion shown from the entire coven and so many others!!

When we left off in Deception, Layla and Quin had finally bonded. Now their lights shine like nothing anyone has ever seen. Layla's emotions are so much higher in this book and Quin's protective streak is even greater. With the looming Argo not far behind them, they get ready to face the battle of a lifetime. So many tears are shed. Volunteers and family from all over convene to take down the Dark Elite. There are traitors and spies on both sides who will be found out. Layla's relationship with baby Alana is one of the most precious relationships one can have with a child, it will bring you to tears every time they are around. As time for the epic battle approaches, families will become closer than ever and some will sacrifice everything. The Dark Elite will learn not to mess with the Earth Angel's family as she has more power than ever seen and will destroy everything in her path to protect and save those she loves.

The epilogue of this book really has me going. I cannot wait for Destruction! I hope B.C. Burgess does not make us wait too long!

I am amazed at the brilliant writing this author does and will always be a huge fan! I very highly recommend this series to any and all! I cannot wait to see how others will view this book and truly hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!

 I highly recommend this series to any and all!! Next week, as celebration of the release of this book, I will be doing some giveaways on our blog page, so stay tuned!


Well bitches, that's about all for now! Hope you enjoyed this week's short version! Hope to see you soon! For now, I'm off to read another ARC!

Hi Everyone!! How how was everyone's week in reading?  Mine, was phenomenal!! You want to know why, I'll tell you...I was at home on a STAYCATION!!! Which means I got a ton of reading done! How much you ask?  14 books!! How you like that?? I read 4 books on Saturday the 17th alone!!  My family and friends mostly just let me have my me time...I know, you're jealous...don't you wish you were like me?? HAHA!!

Well, first things first. Please check out our new tab for the Richmond, VA Author Signing Event.  This is one I am so freaking excited to be attending!! I get to me some of my favorites like Jennifer Armentrout, Jenn Foor, and M. Leighton! And I also get to stalk those I already have met on either one or more occassions like Andrea Randall, EL Montes, Michelle Valentine and of course none other than Raine Miller and Tara Sivec! If you are interested in attending, there is a link to the event registration on the Richmond Author Event Tab.

Now, let's get down to my week in reading...there are two books I won't review in this post as I have reviewed them after I read them.

Aug 7th -
Here Without You - Between the Lines #4 - Tammara Webber


http://www.amazon.com/Here-Without-Between-Lines-ebook/dp/B00CUJVC0G/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1377103522&sr=1-1&keywords=here+without+you

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/here-without-you-tammara-webber/1115622379?ean=2940148694540

This is book 4 in this series, a continuation of Reid and Dori's relationship.  This book is more around the child Reid and Brooke had together.  I truly think Brooke has finally been redeemed in this book and I so wish she would have had an HEA.  I still CANNOT stand Dori!! I think she is selfish, controlling and conniving!! I didn't like her when we met her in #3 and I definitely like her even less (if that's possible) in this book! I so wish Reid would've woken up and realized that really, SHE IS NOT WORTH IT!!  I rated this book 3.25 stars...I really love Reid but he is so stuck on stupid! 

Aug 8th -
Unexpected Angel - Isthmus Alliance #1 - Sloan Johnson

http://www.amazon.com/Unexpected-Angel-Isthmus-Alliance-ebook/dp/B00EBY8N6O/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1377103775&sr=1-1&keywords=unexpected+angel+sloan+johnson

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/unexpected-angel-sloan-johnson/1116306623?ean=2940148554707

I received this book as a gift and let me tell you, I really really enjoyed it! I need to find me a Dylan Caprese!! He is sex personified! The only thing lacking in this book was MORE SEX! I needed more hot scenes with Dylan.  I did enjoy this book a lot! I rated it 4.25 stars and do recommend you read this.

Aug 10th -
My Unexpected Forever - Beaumont #2 - Heidi McLaughlin
My Unexpected Forever (Beaumont, #2)
I can't post the links to this book yet, as it has not been published.  I received this book early and LOVED IT!!!! OMG Harrison!! OK, I know I said I wasn't going to review it again but damn it was good! I do recommend this series if you haven't read it yet.  I gave this book 5 wonderful stars!! 

Aug 11th - 
If You Leave - Beautifully Broken #2 - Courtney Cole

http://www.amazon.com/If-You-Leave-Beautifully-ebook/dp/B00DG8ZY68/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1377104202&sr=1-1&keywords=if+you+leave+courtney+cole

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/if-you-leave-courtney-cole/1115703326?ean=9781455582266

OMG!! Gabe!! WOW! An ex-Marine who can't control his PTSD...or didn't want to until he met Madison.  This is an amazing story.  I know some may night like it because there are some abuse like issues but it really is a good book.  I gave this book 4.25 stars and in my opinion really should be read.  It will give you a better look at what some of our servicemen do suffer from when they come back from war.  It's just whether than can get the help they need to get thru.

Aug 12th - 
Taking Shots - Assassins #1 - Toni Aleo

http://www.amazon.com/Taking-Shots-Assassins-Series-ebook/dp/B00BSW7PV6/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1377104494&sr=1-1&keywords=taking+shots+the+assassins+series

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/taking-shots-toni-aleo/1114589372?ean=9781105568770

This series came highly recommended by another author.  I decided to go ahead and give in and read it.  Now I ask myself, WHY THE HELL didn't I read this sooner???  Holy mother of hot!!! Shea Adler is someone I'd like to meet that's for sure!! I love the way he took care of Ellie and made her believe not everyone was like her abusive ex.  There are a lot of people who don't believe they can get away from abuse but trust me, you sure as hell can!! Shea is such an amazing character, no matter what he never gives up on Ellie! I rated this book 4.75 stars.  It is definitely a must read!

Crossing Paths - Melanie Stinnet
Crossing Paths

Cristin and I received an ARC for a honest review.  I enjoyed this book as it was different with 4 POV's.  Please check out Cristin and mines joint review posted on Monday Aug 19t.

Aug 14th -
Truth - Finding Anna #3 - Sherri Hayes

http://www.amazon.com/Truth-Finding-Anna-Series-ebook/dp/B00E4OOFM2/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1377104870&sr=1-1&keywords=truth+finding+anna+book+3

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/truth-sherri-hayes/1115456568?ean=9781612131627

I felt like I waited forever for this book.  Book 3 left us with such a huge cliffhanger with Brianna's father showing up at the penthouse.  I was so happy we got to see what happened there.  I really do enjoy this series.  Stephan is a great Alpha Male with such an understanding of Anna.  I love the roles that Lily and Logan also play in this series.  I rated this book 4.25 stars.  I can't wait for the next book which is to be the last in this series to wrap up the story!

Aug 15th -
Keeping Her - Losing It #1.5 - Cora Cormack

http://www.amazon.com/Keeping-Her-LOSING-Novella-ebook/dp/B00CD36FHE/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1377105075&sr=1-1&keywords=keeping+her

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/keeping-her-cora-carmack/1115290735?ean=9780062299277

This was a continuation of Garrick and Bliss's relationship from book 1 in the series, Losing It.  I enjoyed this novella and it gave us a bit more closure to Garrick and Bliss.  I now have to go buy some Hershey's Bliss candies! HAHA!! I rated this a 3 as it is a novella.

Aug 17th - (busy day for reading!)
The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden - The Coincidence #1 - Jessica Sorensen

http://www.amazon.com/The-Coincidence-Callie-Kayden-ebook/dp/B00BOTU4Q6/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1377105252&sr=1-1&keywords=the+coincidence+of+callie+and+kayden

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-coincidence-of-callie-kayden-jessica-sorensen/1114763325?ean=9781455576500
Wow! What a story! Kayden, football player, destroyed by years of physical and mental abuse from the hands of his father and Callie, closed off from suffering from rape as a child.  When two hearts are meant to be together, this is what it is like.  This story touches so many emotions.  I am so glad I waited to read this until after the second book came out because now I see what had so many people sitting on edge and yelling and screaming at the end of this book.  Wow! I gave this book 4.5 stars, it was just that good! Don't read this book if you don't have the second one handy!  And get yourself a whole lot of tissues!!

The Redemption of Callie and Kayden - The Coincidence #2 - Jessica Sorensen

http://www.amazon.com/Redemption-Callie-Kayden-Jessica-Sorensen/dp/145557645X/ref=sr_1_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1377105586&sr=1-3

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-redemption-of-callie-kayden-jessica-sorensen/1114763324?ean=9781455576456
As I said previously, I'm glad I waited for this book! I love how far Callie and Kayden came but disliked how far they went apart.  Kayden didn't believe Callie needed to be with him but in the end, true love prevailed.  I didn't rate this second installment as high as the second because there were too many things left unanswered and unsaid.  Thankfully, the author has now decided to give us another book to give us closure.  I gave this book 4.0 stars as I really needed more in the ending.

Lexi, Baby - This Can't Be Happening #1 - Lynda LeeAnne

http://www.amazon.com/Lexi-baby-1-Lynda-LeeAnne/dp/1480278807/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1377105786&sr=1-1&keywords=lexi+baby+this+can%27t+be+happening

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/lexi-baby-lynda-leeanne/1113858417?ean=2940015818154
This is another book I waited to read, although I really didn't have to.  Lexi and Landyn are one hot couple here! Although they were torn apart for 6 years, they came back together.  There journey wasn't easy but it was a good one.  I gave this book 4 stars.  I do recommend this book.

Trish, Just Trish - This Can't Be Happening #2 - Lynda LeeAnne

http://www.amazon.com/Trish-Just-Happening-Series-Volume/dp/1484869346/ref=pd_sim_b_4
http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/trish-just-trish-lynda-leeanne/1114737039?ean=2940016204918
Alpha male bordering on abusive...that's my take on Tony in this book.  I wasn't as crazy about this book as I was the first one.  I did enjoy some/most of the story but Tony was a little too much.  If I were Trish, I would've run to the farthest end of the Earth and stayed the hell away from him.  He did/does not deserve her love.  I gave this book 3.5 stars because I really did enjoy the character of Trish and the overall storyline.  I just wish I would've even really liked Tony.

Aug 18th -
Collide - Collide #1 - Gail McHugh

http://www.amazon.com/Collide-Gail-McHugh/dp/1480536490/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1377106168&sr=1-2&keywords=collide+gail+mchugh

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/collide-gail-mchugh/1114184617?ean=2940016033211
Another book I waited to read! And I'm so glad I did.  Gavin Blake is one hot, bottle cap giving, wiseass, schmexy man! Emily annoyed the shit out of me with being so damn naive! I knew Dillon was a piece of shit from the very beginning! What the hell was wrong with her?  My heart was true to Gavin in this entire book.  I rated this book a 4.25, again because Emily was so freaking stupid!!

Aug 20th -
Pulse - Collide #2 - Gail McHugh


http://www.amazon.com/Pulse-Collide-Volume-Gail-McHugh/dp/149043013X/ref=pd_sim_sbs_b_1

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/pulse-gail-mchugh/1115966961?ean=2940148178668

OK, this book pissed me off so many times! But I was so glad when it was over and Gavin and Emily got their HEA and Dillon got to eat shit!  There is one chapter in this book that had me crying like a damn baby! And damn you Gail McHugh for doing that to me!!! UGH!! I gave this book 4 stars.  I do recommend this series.


Well, I'm finally done here! Whew!! That was a lot to write about! Well, I'm off to finish reading Adam, Enough Said book 3 in the This Is Happening Series I posted above.  Then I'm on to Losing Him, The Mitchell Series Book 8 by Jenn Foor.


Happy Reading Everyone!

This Monday brings you a Joint Review!


Hey all, G & C here and we are both excited to share our first ever joint review! We recently recieved an ARC from a new author asking if we'd read and review her debut book and of course we could not turn her down. Here's a little tidbit....


Review of Crossing Paths by Melanie Stinnett

Crossing Paths

A business trip on the fly leads to an unexpected interest. Unknown family members are interspersed within eachother's lives. Risks are taken, truths are withheld and lies are told all while paths are crossed. 4 people, one story....


June is a young woman thrown into her first business trip to NYC. On the plane she sees this very handsome stranger but has very little interaction with him aside from a  clumsy moment of mistakenly throwing her magazine at him. She feels an instant connection to him and unbeknownst to her, he feels that same connection.


Cohen, also on a business trip runs into a beautiful woman who he just can't manage to stay away from. From accidentally being assulted and run into by her, he finds his smile and hopes that maybe his life is finally looking up regardless of the tragedy and pain he has faced and is facing.


Caroline is June's beautiful, carefree and loving best friend. She is loved by June's family as well as her own including brother CJ. CJ is dealing with so much pain and guilt and she aches for him.. but she finds out he has a secret that she decides to keep that will affect all of them. Caroline has never had long relationships and has never been one to settle down until one day...........


Liam is June's brother. Hot, player extraordinaire...or at least he was known for that until the day he couldn't take his eyes off the beauty that has walked into his world.



This book was a refreshing read for both of us. We agreed on so many things about it. The first being that it was written in 4 different POV's which is unique to a lot of books. We got a glimpse into the minds of the 4 main characters and in doing so, we connected with some of them on a more personal and emotional level. Especially Cohen. His story was completely engaging and heartbreaking for us to read. He was a wonderful character. (we wouldn't mind a continuation of his story, hint hint..lol)

We also agreed that the strong inclusion of family and friends added to how heartwarming the story is. It is one of those feel good books that grabs you like a hug from a friend. Although it wasn't a fast paced book at times, you definitely will not want to put it down because you will need to find out how it all plays out. The ending wraps it all up beautifully.


G and I rate this book 3.5 stars. We really liked it and definitely recommend it and will be promoting this book during it's release at the end of this month. Be on the lookout and....Add it to your TBR!!

Cristin's Post & Reviews. Monday Aug 12


So did you all survive Monday? I myself had today off so I did some reading and relaxing..I could really get used to this *sigh* But then there's that whole bill paying thing and since I don't get paid to read..back to the real world soon. Before that however, I am excited to tell you about the two books I read.....


Love Me by Jillian Dodd

Well it leaves off right where book 3 ends which is nice...Keatyn is still confused about whether or not she wants to get back together with Dawson or try dating Aiden..actually Keatyn is just plain confused. Dawson decides he's going to fight for Keatyn while Aiden continues to woo her and kiss her like she never has been kissed. She likes the wooing (what she recognizes of it), but she can't resist Dawson's advances. And Brooklyn makes an appearance to add to the mix... On top of her love life crisis, she now has a hot bodyguard/ soccer coach named Cooper who helps her with self defense and visiting her family as Vincent is still actively searching for her.

 I love Jillian Dodd's writing. It is witty, gripping and fun to the point where you don't want to put her books down, which is how I felt with the first 3 books. This one was a little slow for me. The writing was there, but the story frustrated me to no end. Well Keatyn frustrated me to no end. I really felt like Dawson was "douched up" and Keatyn was "dumb downed"  and Brooklyn was just thrown back in there. It was clear what Dawson's intentions were and they were not swoonworthy. Aiden however was a complete gentleman and really was trying to do the right thing because her genuinely wants Keatyn for the long haul. It is just too bad that Keatyn wasn't thinking with her head. She missed a lot of the wooing signals and she reallly was bratty and selfish toward Aiden and in  my opinion treated him like crap. I understand that she needs to love herself first, but in this book she went backward. I think she had a melt down from all the stress and pressure and lack of control she has in her life..and..She hurt my Aiden who did nothing wrong...and for all of this I rate this book a 3.5.



 I also read Into The Deep by Samantha Young, another one of my favorite authors. It was released early and that was music to my ears.


This is a story about Charly and her first love Jacob, well actually she is his first love as well. They meet in high school and are inseparable. They recognize at a young age that they have something rare and special and promise to never let it go...that is until tragedy strikes at a party one night and from there they will never be the same. Jake doesn't handle it well and Charly is left devastated and heartbroken....years later while in College in Edinburgh, Scotland Charly is trying to live her life and experience the world when her world is turned upside down as Jake comes crashing back into it....but it isn't an easy reunion for either of them. They both still realize they love eachother, but there are painful obstacles that may not allow them to be together.

 I absolutely loved this book! In one way it was an easy read, but in another it was angsty and emotional but in a good way, a pull you in, I can't put the book down way. I was drawn in to all the characters. Charly and Jake have a great group of friends and they dynamic between them all was fun and heartwarming. There is a sequel in the works and I absolutely cannot wait for it b/c there is so much left to Charly and Jake....they haven't begun to work out their problems yet and I look forward to seeing how this all plays out. Thank you Sam Young for another book I loved. 4.5 Stars

Georgette's Review of My Unexpected Forever

Hello Everyone and happy Sunday!

Yesterday I was blessed by the beautiful Heidi McLaughlin with an advanced copy of My Unexpected Forever and I have to tell you, I was not disappointed!


I absolutely loved this book.  It is jam packed with a slew of emotions.  Grab your tissues for all of the flashbacks of Katelyn and Mason's relationship...you are definitely going to need them!

Harrison's devotion for Katelyn and her children is amazingly admirable!  Where can one find a guy as committed to becoming a family as this one??  Katelyn's feelings are in turmoil as she doesn't think she should be moving on from Mason.  Katelyn struggles with her girls as they struggle with losing their father.  Elle clings herself onto Harrison while Peyton shuts everyone out.  The only person who seems able to console Peyton is Liam.  The person Elle turns to is Harrison and this tears Katelyn up that her girls won't come to her.  She feels helpless as a mother but is glad the girls have someone they can turn to.
Katelyn working as 4225 West's manager brings a lot of interaction between her and Harrison.  They both have feelings for each other but Katelyn doesn't want them to happen.  During the new tour Katelyn booked, they take all of the children to Disney World.  Harrison gets Katelyn to do something she never has done and gets her on the Haunted Mansion ride.  The way he takes her mind off of the ride is....yummmmmm!
Katelyn goes back and forth with her feelings for Harrison during the tour. The tour has unexpectedly ended early and they all go back home.  They are struggling with the after effects and don't know where to go or how to proceed.  When she finally gives in....let's just say, I want Harrison to take me on his motorcycle to The Point!!! 

Harrison's commitment to Katelyn and her children is undeniable and unbreakable.  That is until someone from Harrison's past lies to Katelyn and manipulates her into thinking he's using her.  Although Katelyn no longer trust or wants to be with Harrison, his relationship with her girls never faulters.  When Peyton gets picked on in school, Harrison's son Quinn is quick to defend her and gets into trouble.  When Quinn explains to Harrison what happened, instead of getting upset, he consoles Peyton and takes her under his wing.  She finally opens up and starts to smile again.  Harrison decides that he can no longer take the turmoil in his life and decides to move him and Quinn back to LA.  It breaks his heart that he will be leaving the three women he loves but he believes this is the best decision for him and Quinn.


There are so many amazing parts of this book.  I loved the interaction with all of the characters.  I loved that Mason's father was so understanding and so loving! "Are you going to take my girls away from me?" That was one of the most beautiful things ever! Tears started rolling down my cheeks!  
Another amazing part is when Harrison finds out Quinn is really his son "Miss Tucker has signed away her parental rights.  Quinn is yours and available for adoption by your wife when you choose to marry." "I'm never getting married" "He's mine?" "He's yours, honey" his mom says. "She's crying into my shoulder, but I know the're happy tears because I'm shedding them as well"

There are so many more beautiful moments in this book and I can't wait for everyone to read it!

In anticipation of this release, I'm going to give away a signed copy of the first book in this series, Forever My Girl.  Please click on the giveaway tab to enter.  Good luck everyone and happy reading!

Is anyone else as obsessed with this series as I am? I mean I am seriously cutting off the outside world when I read this book! My hubby has been forewarned that  I will not be mentally present..like..at...all. 
If you haven't heard of or read this series, The Keatyn Chronicles, you are missing out. You need to get these books now!! While the story revolves around characters that are in high school, it is filled with mystery, romance, hot boys, popular girls who love fashion, humor and the writing is just witty and fun! You literally wont want to put any of these books down, trust me. Review to come soon for Love Me.

I have also read two books within the last few days I'd like to tell you about. the first one was Wicked Beat by Olivia Cunning http://www.amazon.com/Wicked-Beat-Sinners-Tour-ebook/dp/B00BGALRKK/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1376157571&sr=1-1&keywords=wicked+beat

This is book 5 in The Sinners On Tour Series. The Sinners are a famous rock group and each band member has their own story. This story is about Eric, their drummer. I'd first like to say that I am a fan of author Olivia Cunning and a fan of the first three books in this series. That being said, I really had a tough time getting into this book. A solid story with some sex is what I look for and this was mostly sex with very little story. I skimmed so much of it, I wasn't sure if I'd be able to finish it, but I did eventually and was just disappointed. 2.5 star rating. You all may love this book so give it a chance. It just did not work for me. 

The second book I read was Double Time by Olivia Cunning http://www.amazon.com/Double-Time-Sinners-Tour-ebook/dp/B008NC9CTW/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1376158284&sr=1-1&keywords=double+time+olivia+cunning 

Double Time is book 6 and the finale of The Sinners on Tour  Series. Unfortuantely it was published out of order prior to book 5, but I held on to my willpower and waited to read them in order. This was Trey's story and it is definitely different being that there is M/M, M/F/M subject matter. While there is more of a story here than in Wicked Beat, I felt that the raunchiness of the sex overshadowed it and being the last book in this series, it was an overall letdown. 3 stars. Again, give it a chance..this is just my personal opinion.

I hope you are telling your friends about us and are following us on Twitter and have liked us on our FB page. We are working hard to make this blog a success. And remember to make time to read, it's the best gift you can give yourself!

Georgette's Week in Reading 07/30 to 08/06

Hello Everyone!  I hope everyone had a great week!

I know you all saw the announcement that I have taken on a partner.  I will still post my weekly reads as I have been doing with my recommendations.  

I didn't read too much again this week as it has been a very busy one...time just seems to get away!

I don't have a giveaway this week...personal reasons but I do hope you enjoy the books I've read:

July 30th -
The Arrangement 9 - HM Ward

http://www.amazon.com/The-Arrangement-Ferro-Family-ebook/dp/B00E7W09QW/ref=sr_sp-atf_image_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1375895107&sr=1-1&keywords=the+arrangement+9

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-arrangement-9-hm-ward/1116241313?ean=2940148655855

This was the ninth installment of this series and I was really hoping to finally get my HEA....unfortunately, HM Ward thinks it's funny to keep us on our feet!! UGH!!!  The way this book ends really was a mind fuck! OUCH!! Did NOT see that ending coming...and I have to wait another 3 weeks for the next book...WHY OH WHY???  Well, I guess that is better than most books we have to wait months for when we are left with cliffhangers...As a novella, I'm going to give this book 3.75 stars...which you know is very high for me to rate this kind of book!

Travis - Alluring Indulgence #3 - Nicole Edwards

http://www.amazon.com/Travis-Alluring-Indulgence-ebook/dp/B00E88HJ2M/ref=sr_sp-atf_title_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1375895142&sr=1-1&keywords=travis+alluring+indulgence

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/travis-nicole-edwards/1116243049?ean=2940148656746

I did enjoy this book...nothing like 2 hot alpha males!  This book is about the oldest of the Walker boys and I really loved the first two books, Kaleb and Zane.  My problem with this book was there was too much Gage in it...I felt it was more about him than about Travis.  I know they were building the story around both men and Kylie but the book was named Travis, not Travis and Gage...I know, I'm being picky...I gave this book 4.25 stars because although I was being picky, it was a good book with a good story.

A Humble Heart - Hollywood Hearts #1 - RL Matthewson

http://www.amazon.com/Humble-Heart-Hollywood-Hearts-ebook/dp/B004GNFNT0/ref=sr_sp-atf_image_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1375895179&sr=1-1&keywords=a+humble+heart+a+hollywood+heart+novel

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/humble-heart-rl-mathewson/1101585621?ean=9780983212515

This looks to have been one of RL Matthewson's early books.  I did enjoy this book.  It was really nice to see a woman take herself and her kids from a miserable life to a very happy and successful one.  And STILL appreciate the simpler things in life!  The same is to be said about the male character in this book, who himself is very successful but still only wants the simple things.  I am giving this book 4 stars as the story line captured me and made me believe.

August 3rd -
A Reclusive Heart - Hollywood Hearts #2 - RL Matthewson

http://www.amazon.com/Reclusive-Heart-Hollywood-ebook/dp/B006977QA0/ref=pd_sim_kstore_1

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/a-reclusive-heart-rl-mathewson/1107444629?ean=2940013461192

This was the second book in the series and I just had to read one right after the other!  Unfortunately, I did not enjoy this story as much as I did the first.  I kind of got tired of hearing (ok, reading) "My Little Recluse", it really got annoying.  I am giving this book 3.5 stars.

August 4th -
In The End - Timing is Everything #3 - Erika Ashby

http://www.amazon.com/The-End-Timing-Everything-ebook/dp/B00EAY3V4E/ref=sr_sp-atf_image_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1375895247&sr=1-1&keywords=in+the+end+erika+ashby

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/in-the-end-erika-ashby/1116308722?ean=2940148533108

I loved getting Jake's story!! This should've been a #0.5 since it happened before MoFo, but that's ok.  I loved that we were lead to no longer hate Jake!  Thank you Erika for giving us that!  As a novella, I gave this one my highest rating of 3.75! If you've read MoFo, than you need to read this one! If you haven't, what are you waiting for?

August 5th -
Ending a Broken Journey - Melissa L. Delgado

http://www.amazon.com/Ending-Broken-Journey-Series-ebook/dp/B00EBH6ULG/ref=sr_sp-atf_title_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1375895290&sr=1-1&keywords=ending+a+broken+journey

We got a review and some teasers from Cristin last week on this book and she wasn't wrong! I LOVED this book! Such emotions brought out...excellent job Melissa!! I love that 1st loves can come back to you! Congrats on your first book!! I can't wait to read more and get Jax's story!  I gave this book 4.75 amazing stars!  If you are in the mood for an emotional read, I definitely recommend this...

August 6th - 
Bring Me Home - Shattered Hearts #3 - Cassia Leo

http://www.amazon.com/Bring-Home-Shattered-Hearts-ebook/dp/B00EBTKGCI/ref=sr_sp-atf_image_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1375895332&sr=1-1&keywords=bring+me+home+cassia+leo

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/bring-me-home-cassia-leo/1116307783?ean=2940148654216

Ok. I don't know what to say.  Cassia broke my heart!! Claire did not wind up with the man I've been rooting for since Relentless! Why would she do that to me???  Yeah, I learned to love who she wound up with but it wasn't the same.  This was a very good book though and I did enjoy it...in my head, I just switched the characters name to where I wanted them to be! HAHA!  I gave this book 4.25 stars and do recommend this series.  It's another emotional one.


Well, I am finishing up Tammara Webber's Here Without You (Between the Lines #4) today then I am on to the hotness of Unexpected Angel by Sloan Johnson.


Happy Reading Everyone!

I'm out bitches!  Love to you all!
