So, I'm going to quickly recap what's happening with the books I received/bought. I read Her Best Laid Plans the day I got it. The story is a sexy vacation fling novella set in Ireland. It's Cara McKenna, so I obviously loved it. I've already read Twisted, but am thrilled to have a finished copy. I'm really excited to read Sweet Filthy Boy, I hope it's as good as the BB series. I've had good luck with Xcite and Sourcebooks novels so I'm looking forward to reading Substitute and Troublemaker Next Door. I'm a huge fan of Jen Frederick's and was excited when she sent me her Hitman books. She couldn't even scare me away by warning that they are"different". Imaginary Lines is the third in a series that my cousin (a librarian) recommends. Laugh is the follow-up to Live by Mary Ann Rivers, one of my favorite books of 2014. I've been anxious to read Roman Holiday since reading a post from Ruthie Knox on writing realistic sex.
As far as the "Review Consideration" books go, I'm not sure that I will be able to make time for Rebecca's Lost Journals anytime soon, but I hope to eventually. This is my second copy received. Where the Horses Run doesn't seem like my typical read, but the synopsis caught my attention. I'm thinking of giving it a try. Same with Up At Butternut Lake, it actually sounds like a great Women's Fiction. The Goblin Emperor is really not my thing. I feel bad when publishers keep sending me books in genres I don't even read.
For "Purchases", I'd been meaning to get the print of Tangled, but receiving Twisted was a great reminder (way to go publicists). I bought Hers to Choose and His to Lose because of Amanda (Hootie's) reviews. How books with such awfully worded sex scenes can still be sexy and good is beyond me, but I can't wait to give these a try! I bought Love Hacked because Penny Reid is often recommended alongside Laura Florand, Mary Ann Rivers, and a few other authors I adore. Got Power Play because Charlotte Stein is a fantastic erotica author and it was on sale.
And "Freebies". Just This Once was a done deal when I read the words "New Zealand" and "rugby player". Sleeping with the Enemy is the second in a series and I already have book one. Violet Duke's entire Nice Girls to Love Collection was free. I've heard good things about her books.
