It’s graduation week so I’m going to be extremely busy doing all kinds of family stuff but I wanted to put up a post about what I’ve been up to…reading wise. Cause I’ve been reading. 🙂
What I’m Currently Reading
Navy men don’t come tougher than Lieutenant Peter Greene. Every day he whips hotshot SEAL wannabes into elite fighters. So why can’t he handle one fifteen-year-old girl? His ex’s death left him a single dad overnight, and very unprepared. Though he can’t relate to an angsty teen, he can at least keep Maddie safe—until the day she disappears. Though Pete’s lacking in fatherly intuition, his instinct for detecting danger is razor sharp. Maddie’s in trouble. Now he needs the Troubleshooters team at his back, along with an unconventional ally.
Romance writer Shayla Whitman never expected to be drawn into a real-world thriller—or to meet a hero who makes her pulse pound. Action on the page is one thing. Actually living it is another story. Shay’s not as bold as her heroines, but she’s a mother. She sees the panic in her new neighbor’s usually fearless blue eyes—and knows there’s no greater terror for a parent than having a child at risk. It’s an ordeal Shay won’t let Pete face alone. She’s no highly trained operative, but she’s smart, resourceful, and knows what makes teenagers tick.
Still, working alongside Pete has its own perils—like letting the heat between them rise out of control. Intimate emotions could mean dangerous, even deadly, consequences for their mission. No matter what, they must be on top of their game, and playing for keeps . . . or else Pete’s daughter may be gone for good.
I’m just about done with this book and while it’s not my favorite Troubleshooters book, I still enjoyed it. There were some points in the story where I wanted to strangle different people but overall, it was a good book. Right after I finish this book, I’m jumping into Stay (WAGs #2) by Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy.
What I Read
My favorite read of the week goes to I Knew You Were Trouble by Lauren Layne. I enjoyed all of the books that I read this week but this one was my favorite. I just liked being in the Oxford world again and I enjoyed Nick and Taylor’s story. I’m seeing that it’s not getting a lot of love around the blogosphere but I liked it.
My least favorite read of the week is probably Dating You, Hating You by Christina Lauren. It was a good read, a solid first read for me by this author but I just enjoyed the other books that I read this week just a smidge more than this one. Also? This book offended my book bestie, Ames and that played into my feelings on the book. I agreed with her on that one thing so that’s why it’s my least favorite.
Book Boyfriend of the Week
Nick Ballantine from I Knew You Were Trouble by Lauren Layne
Of all of the guys that I read about this week, Nick is probably my favorite. His story kind of broke my heart and I loved seeing him fall in love with Taylor, even when she was being difficult. He wasn’t perfect by any means because I wanted to throttle him something fierce near the end of the book but after all was said done, I still loved the hell out of him so that’s why he’s this week’s book boyfriend of the week.
