The Wednesday Post (18)

Posted August 7, 2019 by Rowena in Books | 4 Comments

Can’t Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tessa over at Wishful Endings and it was based on Waiting on Wednesday that was hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme that is hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words.

I decided that I’m going to do a mashup of the Can’t Wait Wednesday and WWW Wednesday posts here on my blog. I’m bringing them together and calling it The Wednesday Post. Here’s what I’m up to this week.

WWW Wednesday

What did you recently finish reading?

The Kingpin of Camelot (A Kinda Fairytale #3) by Cassandra Gannon
The Duchess in His Bed (Sins for All Season #4) by Lorraine Heath

I really enjoyed both of these books. The Cassandra Gannon was a new to me author and series and while it was pretty slow in the beginning, once the story hit its stride, I really came to love the world and the main couple. I really, really loved King Midas. King Midas was everything! 🙂 Aiden’s story was just as fantastic as I knew it would be. Lorraine Heath is a goddess of historical romance and I eat up everything she writes. I’m still LOVING the hell out of this series and I cannot wait for Fancy’s book.

What are you currently reading?

The Iron Duke (Iron Seas #1) by Meljean Brook

I haven’t started this book yet since I went to see Hobbs and Shaw last night like the good Samoan lady that I am. LOL. I got home pretty late so I didn’t even bother starting this one and running the risk of not remembering a damn thing I read. I’ll be starting this book today though and it’s been on my TBR pile for YEARS. I know that Holly will be happy that I’m finally reading this book…she only had to force me to do it with the Summer Reading Challenge. Haha.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Coming Up Roses by Staci Hart
Water Bound (Sea Haven #1) by Christine Feehan

I’m still plugging away at my TBR pile and I’m hopeful that I’ll get through all of the books that I need to read this month so that I can finish my Summer Reading Challenge with my head held high, haha. In an effort to make that happen, I’ll be reading these two books next.

Can’t Wait Wednesday
The Wednesday Post (18)The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams
Series: The Bromance Book Club #1
Published by Penguin, Berkley on November 5, 2019
Genres: Contemporary, Romance
Pages: 352
Format: eARC
Source: NetGalley
Add It: Goodreads

The first rule of book club:
You don't talk about book club.

Nashville Legends second baseman Gavin Scott's marriage is in major league trouble. He’s recently discovered a humiliating secret: his wife Thea has always faked the Big O. When he loses his cool at the revelation, it’s the final straw on their already strained relationship. Thea asks for a divorce, and Gavin realizes he’s let his pride and fear get the better of him.

Welcome to the Bromance Book Club.

Distraught and desperate, Gavin finds help from an unlikely source: a secret romance book club made up of Nashville's top alpha men. With the help of their current read, a steamy Regency titled Courting the Countess, the guys coach Gavin on saving his marriage. But it'll take a lot more than flowery words and grand gestures for this hapless Romeo to find his inner hero and win back the trust of his wife.

I’m really looking forward to reading this book. It sounds like my kind of romance and I’m excited to see what Lyssa Kay Adam’s brings to the contemporary romance table. There’s room for everyone and I’m excited to give her stuff a try.

So, what are you reading this week? Anything good? Anything that you want to rant about?
Are you looking forward to The Bromance Book Club? What other books are you looking forward to releasing this year?

  1. I’ve read a couple really good reviews for Coming Up Roses so I’m keeping that one of my radar. I’ve been trying to hold off on The Bromance Book Club until closer to release date but a friend who just read it is now twisting my arm to read it NOW. LOL We’ll see how long I last. 🙂

    • I hope that Coming Up Roses is an enjoyable read. The last couple of Staci Hart books that I’ve read were a bit underwhelming so fingers crossed this one is better.

      Good luck with The Bromance Book Club…I don’t have any faith that you’ll hold off on reading it. Hahaha. Live a little, read the book Tanya! =P

  2. I plan on picking up Duchess In His Bed pretty soon probably this week if possible so I can’t wait for it. And YES Heath is a true historical GODDESS. Love her books.

    I hope you enjoy Water Bound, I really had a fun time with that book, especially the heroine. She is funny.
