Week in Books (3)

Posted December 14, 2015 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments


I think I found my end of the year reading stride because I got some damn books read this week. Yay me! My review pile is slowly dwindling and I haven’t picked up or requested very many of eARCs in the last couple of weeks because I really want to get my review pile down. I’m crossing my fingers that I can knock some more out this week. Wish me luck!

Did I Mention I Love You
Did I Mention I Love You by Estelle Maskame

Love is everything but expected.

Eden Monro came to California for a summer of sun, sand and celebrities – what better way to forget about the drama back home? Until she meets her new family of strangers: a dad she hasn’t seen in three years, a stepmonster and three stepbrothers.

Eden gets her own room in her dad’s fancy house in Santa Monica. A room right next door to her oldest stepbrother, Tyler Bruce. Whom she cannot stand. He’s got angry green eyes and ego bigger than a Beverly Hills mansion. She’s never felt such intense dislike for someone. But the two are constantly thrown together as his group of friends pull her into their world of rule-breaking, partying and pier-hanging.

And the more she tries to understand what makes Tyler burn hotter than the California sun, the more Eden finds herself falling for the one person she shouldn’t…

Did I Mention I Love You? is the addictive first book in Wattpad sensation Estelle Maskame’s DIMILY trilogy: three unforgettable summers of secrets, heartbreak and forbidden romance.

I haven’t gotten very far into this book but I’m looking forward to getting it read since the book takes place not too far from where I live. After I finish this book, I’m going to jump into Lord Dashwood Missed Out by Tessa Dare.

Man Crush Monday (3)

Posted December 7, 2015 by Rowena in Features | 2 Comments

This week’s Man Crush is the guy that plays Jackson Avery on Greys Anatomy because holy cow, he’s yummy. I started watching the later seasons over the weekend and my favorite part of the entire show outside of Christina Yang is Avery and Kepner. That’s surprising because I hated Kepner when I was watching the show.

I mean, look at this guy:


Look at those eyes!!!! Talk about gorgeous.

This is exactly how I feel when I’m watching Grey’s now.

Get it, Kepner!


Week in Books (2)

Posted December 7, 2015 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments


It’s been a really quiet week in books for me. I’m not sure if it’s the end of the year book blues or what but for some reason, I’m just not in the mood to read. I’ve been watching Greys Anatomy in my spare time and I never thought there’d come a day when I’d want to pick that show up again but there you go.

dirty deeds
Alex Dawn is saying no to men. No to bad relationships, disappointments, and smooth-talkers. Focusing on her family and her job at Payton and Sons Automotive keeps her mind occupied and her heart content. She doesn’t really miss a man’s touch, until one night, a man shows up with the body of a god and a voice from her dirtiest dreams.

L.M. Spencer is only in Tory, Maryland, to scope out the town as a possible site for one of his company’s hotels. The British businessman didn’t expect his car to break down or to find the hottest little American he’s ever seen holding a tire iron, piercing him with bright blue eyes.

They agree to one hot night, one dirty deed to burn out the chemistry between them. But from their first kiss, Alex can’t stop saying yes to this man. And when Spencer’s company threatens everything she cares about, they must make the choice to stand together or apart.

This is the book that I’m going to try to get read tonight. Wish me luck.


Nothing. I did not read a blessed thing last week. Someone hold me.
