September 1, 2014 Talking Between Reads 11

Talking Between Reads* (TBR) is a weekly discussion post where we talk about different topics from books to blogging and anything else we think you guys might enjoy. Stop by on Mondays for new topics. *Formerly known as What the Feck (WTF)   Gateway Cards: Getting the most from your library card?   I know not all public libraries are created equally.

September 1, 2014 Book Reviews 1 ★★★★

  I have not stayed up to 3 am to finish a book in a LONG TIME. But once I got sucked into Mandy Baxter’s ONE NIGHT MORE I had to finish it.   Quick Summary Harper and Galen meet in bar one night. She’s there to celebrate finishing her degree in journalism and Galen is there having a drink with his best friend and fellow U.S. Marshal, Landon before he heads over to France for a year-long assignment. Galen saves Harper from a creep at the bar and ends… Read more »

Snagged @ The Library: Ruthie Knox & Susan Elizabeth Phillips

August 31, 2014 Snagged @ The Library 5

    I’m so excited. I renewed my library card for the main library for the state and they have TONS of PNR/UF ebooks and audiobooks. In the spirit of saving money this year I’ve challenged myself to read books I already own or get them from the library. So I’m following in the foot steps of Felicia over at Geeky Bloggers Book Blog and showing off my library finds. This week I snagged BIG BOY by Ruthie Knox from Central Arkansas Library System via my gateway card.         And I added HEROES… Read more »

Excerpt + Giveaway: The Hook Up by Kristen Callihan

August 30, 2014 Giveaway 0

My mother once told me that the most important moment in my life wouldn’t be when I won the National Championship or even the Super Bowl. It would be when I fell in love. Life, she insisted, is how you live it and who you live it with, not what you do to make a living. Given that she told me this when I was sixteen, I basically rolled my eyes and worked on practicing my pass fakes. But my mother was insistent. “You’ll see, Drew. One day, love will… Read more »

ROMP with a side of Stomp from Bec McMaster

ROMP with a side of Stomp from Bec McMaster

August 29, 2014 Author Guest Post, Giveaway, Stomp vs Romp 2014 32

  If any of you know my London Steampunk books, then you’ll know that I like to mix a fair bit of ROMP with my STOMP. Featuring daring duels, dangerous escapes by dirigible, or thrilling chases through the eerie, fog-dusted London streets… there’s plenty here for the STOMP fan, but when it comes down to it, I’m definitely Team ROMP. Because while my books feature a strong undercurrent of action, the most fascinating part is watching two people fall in love. Fighting monsters is all well and good, but fighting… Read more »

Another 5 Star read! Evernight by Kristen Callihan

Another 5 Star read! Evernight by Kristen Callihan

August 29, 2014 Book Reviews 6 ★★★★★

Kristen Callihan’s Dark London series have all been 5 star reads for me and EVERNIGHT is no different! I don’t give out many 5 stars and to have a whole series with 5 stars is really saying something! It’s hard to pick out my favorite book/couple. Before reading EVERNIGHT, Jack and Mary from SHADOWDANCE was my favorite couple but now they are tied with Holly and Will. Holly and Will’s story starts near the end of SHADOWDANCE where they are both kidnapped by an evil and crazy fallen Angel. They… Read more »

It’s the worst possible time in the world for him to reignite his affair with Katsu Stafford but he simply can’t resist her. Even though he’s the Dom, she has all the power. Katsu gets exactly what she wants, when she wants it, because she has a romance hero for a partner. And of course romance heroes always know what their heroine wants, right?
