This Year I Am Reading…
When Jean and I set out on a quest to find the scythe, questions I had long ignored must now be answered. What is Jean’s connection to this evil? Why will he trust me with his life but not his secrets? As my most trusted valet, and my greatest friend, surely nothing that happens along this perilous journey can change what I feel in my heart for him. Or can it?
I’m almost done with this. This is adorbs!
Readers of Charlie Cochet‘s magical shifter series Paranormal Princes has been teased by Shifter King Alarick’s obliviousness to his bestfriend/advisor/co-conspirator Jean’s feelings towards the lovable doofus. Their story is smooshy, gooey sweet! So worth the wait!
Last Year I Was Reading…
And between a roller coaster of a road trip and the love and joy surrounding the wedding… Derek and Rhys just might remember why they fell for each other in the first place.
Are they only kidding themselves? Or can a rekindled spark really light the way to forgiveness?
This book contains elements I normally steer clear of, namely separation and cheating. Trust L.A. Witt to turn this into an emotional journey of forgiveness. She had me rooting for Reese and Derek all the way.
My 4-star review here.
These two books don’t have much in common.
The King and His Vigilant Valet is a full-on paranormal novella. We have all kinds of shifters, magic, fae, portals, ancient gods, mythical creatures and what-not. The overall tone is humorous. The story is low-angst and fluffy. It’s the last book of the series, although I wouldn’t recommend reading it as a standalone because the other books are just as fun too.
Is It Over Yet? is pure contemporary romance. We have an about-to-be-divorced couple going on a roadtrip to their daughter’s wedding. Along the way, sparks that were never fully extinguished rekindled. Cheating here happened before the story started. This is a dramatic, angsty standalone book.
Both books have their own appeal. I would like to say I like them both equally but fluff usually wins the day.
I’m ending the post with a book I’m looking forward to reading.
It’s good to be the Boss. That’s what I thought my whole life.
Now I am the Boss. I’ll shoulder that responsibility with my beloved husband beside me. As long as I have Finch, I can handle whatever life throws at me.
But what they say is true: Be careful what you wish for.

This is the sequel to that highly enjoyable mafia-flavored romance, Married to the Mobster. It picks up after that power grab attempt that left many casualties. Luca and Finch are now deep in turf-wars. I love Finch’s sassy, street-smart spirit. He’s going to help Luca take over the world.
What were you reading this time last year?
(I hope it’s as riveting as Morticia’s book)
