On the rez
July was a sad month. I lost a beloved aunt to cancer.
Here's what I read:
1. When Beauty Tamed the Beast by Eloisa James: B+
2. Winning the Wallflower by Eloisa James: B+
3. The Distance Between Us by Kasie West: B
4. The Duke is Mine by Eloisa James: B
I read some reviews that were very harsh towards this book. And honestly, I didn't think it was bad at all! I enjoyed it and liked the romance and the characters.
5. Forgotten Sins by Rebecca Zanetti: C
Paranormal. Not really my favorite genre these days. The beginning was good and drew me in, but as the plot went on, it became ‘meh’ for me.
6. Crazy For You by Jennifer Crusie: A
7. Trophy Husband by Lauren Blakely: C+
Trophy Husband was a cute read but it wasn’t without problems. I thought the conflict was flimsy and solved too easily and I felt that the h/h fell a bit too quickly for each other. However, they were both wookin’ panub (looking for love lol) so not that much of an issue. But it does happen fast. The heroine is a blogger with an awesome dog and the hero is a techie. It was a very cute romance.
8. Getting Rid of Bradley by Jennifer Crusie: A-
Another re-read and one of my all time favorite Crusies. There's green hair, there's dogs, there's a hot cop. All wonderful things.
9. Ransom by Julie Garwood: B+
This was a re-read but it had been several years since my last read and I forgot how fun this book is. I forgot about Brodick’s sense of humor and I liked Gillian’s character, watching out over a young boy.
This is an Elle and Adam story. Elle has loved Adam for a while and as they’re moving in together, she comes across some journals. She shows Adam certain ones, about her feelings for him before he even knew she wanted him. I thought this was sweet.
11. Wallbanger by Alice Clayton: B+
Holly from Book Binge recommended this one and it was funny…but I don’t think I found it as funny as she did.
12. Meant to Be by Terri Osburn: B
I thought the premise for this one was interesting. Beth is on a ferry to her fiance’s home community, located on an island. Beth is terrified and a very nice man named Joe helps calm her down. Well…Joe ends up being her future brother-in-law and it makes things very awkward for Beth.
13. Between the Lines by Tammara Webber: B+

B – 9
C – 2
Contemporary Romance – 6
Historical Romance – 4
Young Adult – 2
PNR - 1
E-Book – 12 (4 re-reads)

Epic fail again trying to read from the TBR pile. LOL
