It rained cats and dogs this week, mostly this weekend so I got a hell of a lot of reading done. I wasn’t in the mood to go out, I didn’t really feel like watching TV or movies though I did watch Hidden Figures and really enjoyed that so for the most part, this weekend…I stayed in and read all of the books.
It did wonders to pick up my mood since Brenna’s basketball coach was gonna catch these hands on Friday at her game. I was so angry for my baby (she didn’t get any playing time and the coach’s reasons for that are bullshit. So full of shit, that lady is.) who is beyond frustrated with how her senior year is going. Stupid people like her coach really piss me off.
Cole Masten. Abandoned by his superstar wife, Hollywood’s Perfect Husband is now Hollywood’s Sexiest Bachelor: partying hard and screwing even harder. Watch out Los Angeles, there’s a new bad boy in town.
Summer Jenkins. That’s me, a small town girl stuck in Quincy, Georgia. I cook some mean chicken and dumplins, can bluff a grown man out of his savings in poker, and was voted Most Friendly my senior year.
We were from different worlds. Our lives shouldn’t have collided. But then Cole Masten read a book about my small town. And six months later, his jet landed on our dusty airstrip, and he brought Hollywood with him.
From the start, I knew he was trouble. For our town. And for me.
Sometimes, opposites just aren’t meant to attract.
Ames and I are reading this book for our January buddy review and I’m about halfway through the 112 chapters that this book has to offer. It’s a really quick read though, I’m enjoying it so far even though the hero is a douche and the heroine makes me laugh. Lots to look forward to and I can’t wait to finish it.

My favorite read of the week goes to Sustained by Emma Chase because that book is just all that and a bag of chips for me. I adore that book and it’s been a while in between reads so I forgot a lot of the things that I loved about it the first time I read it. I highly recommend that book. So stinkin’ good. I laughed, I cried and I damn near swooned at every turn because Jake Beckett is whoa. Of the new to me reads, my favorite is Seven Minutes in Heaven by Eloisa James. That was a delightful read.
All of the books that are rated 3 are equally my least favorite reads of the week. They were just okay reads. Good stories overall but for one reason or another, I didn’t love them.
Here are my reviews that went live on Book Binge this week:

New to My Review Shelf
I should mention that after I finish reading Coming Up for Air by Miranda Kenneally (I’ll be reading that this week), I will have zero books left on my 2017 review pile. I am beyond happy about that.
There you have it, my week in books. How did your week go?
