I’ve read eight books this summer. Of those books, one was a parenting book and most of the others were smut – pure, sexy, entertaining smut.
I had grand plans to read other books, but for whatever reason, it’s not what ended up in my Nook library.
I started with Entwined With You, which is the third novel in the Sylvia Day Crossfire series. While I have loved the series, this book was not my favorite. I’m a huge Eva and Gideon fan (the main characters), but found myself a tad annoyed that this was not the conclusion of the series. I think Day is dragging this one out a bit too long.
I then read two Christina Lauren books, Beautiful Bastard and Beautiful Stranger! A huge thank you to my friend, Heather, for recommending both books, which are sure to have you needing a cold shower. They are easy reads (I read both in 48 hours) and both feature a racy plot line that had me turning pages as fast as I could. Next up is the continuation of Beautiful Bastard entitled Beautiful Bitch and then Beautiful Bombshell.
Then I switched over to the first book in the S. C. Stephens, Thoughtless series. It’s the story of a girl who follows her boyfriend across country, only to fall in love with his friend and roommate. While I enjoyed the story line (this is less smutty, but still has some sexy scenes) it didn’t quite grab me as much I would have liked. So the second book, Effortless, has gone unread.
Instead I downloaded two Joya Ryan books, Break Me Slowly and Possess Me Slowly. They were $2.99 on my Nook (Only .99 if you own a Kindle) so that definitely piqued my interest. I wanted an easy read and a good story. I got both. If you like a hot love story, you will not be disappointed. I like that Ryan writes a book about all her character, so you can get to know each of them better, but I do think each book could have been it’s own series. Ah well, it’s $3. I can deal.
Now I plan to switch directions and read The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I’m a sucker for Young Adult fiction and am anxiously awaiting the third book in the Veronica Roth Divergent series, Allegiant, to come out in October. I also need to reread Catching Fire to prepare for the movie.
What are you reading these days? Got any book recommendations for me? I’m all ears.
