Eye Candy Friday: Curran from Kate Daniel’s Series by Ilona Andrews

Posted June 21, 2019 by Rowena in Books | 4 Comments


Eye Candy Friday is all about the heroes and heroines that I’m loving and wanting to spotlight right now. Sometimes I’ll do full-on gush fest posts on why I love these guys, sometimes I’ll post pictures of what I think they look like and that’s it but if they’re featured here, the one thing that will be constant is I loved the hell out of them and want everyone to know. Thanks for coming along for the ride.

Down in Atlanta, tempers – and temperatures – are about to flare…

As a mercenary who cleans up after magic gone wrong, Kate Daniels has seen her share of occupational hazards. Normally, waves of paranormal energy ebb and flow across Atlanta like a tide. But once every seven years, a flare comes, a time when magic runs rampant. Now Kate’s going to have to deal with problems on a much bigger scale: a divine one.

When Kate sets out to retrieve a set of stolen maps for the Pack, Atlanta’s paramilitary clan of shapeshifters, she quickly realizes much more at stake. During a flare, gods and goddesses can manifest – and battle for power. The stolen maps are only the opening gambit in an epic tug-of-war between two gods hoping for rebirth. And if Kate can’t stop the cataclysmic showdown, the city may not survive…

Today’s eye candy is Curran Lennart from the Kate Daniels series, but more specifically from Magic Burns. Magic Burns is the second book in the Kate Daniels series and it is where a crush developed on Curran because I’ll be honest. I didn’t like Curran all that much in Magic Bleeds. I thought he was an arrogant jackass but we didn’t really see him in that book. He’s in this book a lot more and Kate knows him better and seeing the amount of care that he has for his pack is something else.

In this book, there’s a part where Curran is fighting the bad guys and he doesn’t give up. He just plows through enemies left and right and he keeps going, even if the odds are against him. He just keeps fighting and fighting to keep his loved ones safe and to give Kate a fighting chance. He won me completely over in this book because man, I loved it…and that’s why he’s this week’s eye candy. Yummo.

You can read my joint review of Magic Burns, here. I reviewed with my Book Binge team and we all liked it much better than the first book.

Hero Casting
Saw this casting floating around the internet and that definitely fits in with the image that I have of Curran in my mind. I can definitely see this guy annoying the shit out of Kate and turning into a majestic lion. Gah, I heart Curran.

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.

Magic Burns (Kate Daniels #2) by Ilona Andrews | 4.25 out of 5
I’m in a reading slump like no other. I’m hoping that this week is the week that I finally kick it to the curb for good but it’s Wednesday and I’ve only read one book. I enjoyed Magic Burns a lot more than I did the previous book but my reading slump is responsible for why it took me so long to read it. It was a fantastic book with magic, kick-ass heroines, charming side characters and a romance that just won’t quit. I’m so here for all of the Kate Daniels magic that I’ve been hearing so much about. I can see it and I can’t wait for more.

Hook Shot (Hoops #3) by Kennedy Ryan
I started this book this morning and already, I’m hooked. Kenney Ryan writes fabulous contemporary romances that really pull at your heart strings. I can’t wait to dig more into Lotus and Kenan’s romance. I adored them in the other books and look forward to seeing them shine on their own.

High school finally behind her, Winnie is all set to attend college in the fall. But first she's spending her summer days working at her granny’s diner and begins spending her midnights with Dallas—the boy she loves to hate and hates that she likes. Winnie lives in Misty Haven, a small town where secrets are impossible to keep—like when Winnie allegedly snaps on Dr. Skinner, which results in everyone feeling compelled to give her weight loss advice for her own good. Because they care that’s she’s “too fat.”

Winnie dreams of someday inheriting the diner—but it'll go away if they can't make money, and fast. Winnie has a solution—win a televised cooking competition and make bank. But Granny doesn't want her to enter—so Winnie has to find a way around her formidable grandmother. Can she come out on top?

My friend Holly put this book on my radar. First of all, that cover is gorgeous. I love the colors and the cover model is too freaking adorable. Her outfit is super cute and that blurb had me requesting this for review with a quickness. I need to read more diverse stories and this fits the bill well so I’m all about it. This book comes out on June 4th so mark calendars, lovely readers, this one promises to be good one. I just know it!
So, what are you reading this week? Anything good? Anything that you want to rant about? Are you looking forward to If It Makes You Happy by Claire Kann? What other books are you looking forward to releasing this year?

Fumbled by Alexa Martin | The Shameless Hour by Sarina Bowen
I finished Fumbled last night and The Shameless Hour the night before last night. Both books were great reads and I’m super glad that I requested Fumbled for review. Poppy could have been me. She even talks like me and I really enjoyed seeing her with Ace and Big Ace. The romance was fantastic, the dialogue was real and I really need to go back and read Intercepted. Alexa Martin has made herself nice and comfy on my auto-buy list with just this one book. Total score for me. Ever since Sarina Bowen put her Ivy Years series on Kindle Unlimited, I’ve been binge reading these books during the day at work. I love this series and it continues to be a favorite of mine. I liked Bella’s story a lot more with this reading than I did the first time and I can’t wait to jump into my work re-read of DJ and Lianne.

Can’t Wait Wednesday

I will always look forward to new releases by Sarah Dessen. She writes the kind of stories that I absolutely love and always want to read.

Emma Saylor doesn’t remember a lot about her mother, who died when she was ten. But she does remember the stories her mom told her about the big lake that went on forever, with cold, clear water and mossy trees at the edges.

Now it’s just Emma and her dad, and life is good, if a little predictable…until Emma is unexpectedly sent to spend the summer with her mother’s family—her grandmother and cousins she hasn’t seen since she was a little girl.

When Emma arrives at North Lake, she realizes there are actually two very different communities there. Her mother grew up in working class North Lake, while her dad spent summers in the wealthier Lake North resort. The more time Emma spends there, the more it starts to feel like she is divided into two people as well. To her father, she is Emma. But to her new family, she is Saylor, the name her mother always called her.

Then there’s Roo, the boy who was her very best friend when she was little. Roo holds the key to her family’s history, and slowly, he helps her put the pieces together about her past. It’s hard not to get caught up in the magic of North Lake—and Saylor finds herself falling under Roo’s spell as well.

For Saylor, it’s like a whole new world is opening up to her. But when it’s time to go back home, which side of her will win out?

So, what are you reading this week? Anything good? Anything that you want to rant about? Are you looking forward to The Rest of the Story? What other books are you looking forward to releasing this year?

My TBR Pile: March 2019

Posted March 5, 2019 by Rowena in Books, Features | 4 Comments

So, every month I put a list together of the books that I either need to read for review or the books that I want to get around to reading (finally). I’m also trying to be more responsible with my Kindle Unlimited and Audible Romance Package subscriptions so I’m going to post my TBR Pile on the blog so you guys can keep me honest. Before we get to my list for next month, let’s see how I did in February.
Previous Month Stats
Books to Read: 10 Books Read: 8 Books Unread: 2 Pages Read: 3,168 | Hours Listened: 18 hours, 86 minutes Favorite Read: Huge Deal by Lauren Layne, Devil’s Daughter by Lisa Kleypas Least Favorite Read: The Assist by Rebecca Jenshak
Once again, I read all but 2 books from my TBR pile for February. I was on track to read them all but I got really sick last week and took an unexpected week-long hiatus to get back on my feet. In that time, I didn’t read much so I fell behind some. Oh well, I’ll just tack those last two books onto my TBR pile for this month. My favorite reads of the month go to Huge Deal by Lauren Layne, Devil’s Daughter by Lisa Kleypas, and The Risk by Elle Kennedy. I enjoyed all three of these books but I think I enjoyed the first two titles a smidge more than the last but still, all books were fabulous! Loved reading them all so much. My least favorite read of the month goes to The Assist by Rebecca Jenshak. The writing was a little clunky for me and I didn’t connect with the characters and what happened in the book as much as I was hoping to though I am still planning on reading the next book in the series so that’s something. I have loads of books to read in March and I’m barely hanging on to my GoodReads Challenge for this year so I need to up my game. I’m looking forward to challenging myself a lot more this coming month than I did last month. Here’s a list of books I plan on reading in March.
March’s TBR Pile
Team Player by Julianna Keyes Releases on March 28, 2019 Publisher: Self Published Genres: Contemporary, Romance Pages: 291 Format: eARC Source: NetGalley
Don’t hate the player… BOTTOM NINE Gwen Scott wants to love her job with the Charleston Thrashers, the MLB team she’s worshiped since she was a kid, but she can’t. Hateful colleagues and mind-numbing work make her days unbearable—until her head for baseball gets her exclusive access to the Thrashers’ clubhouse and she comes face-to-face with Tyler Ashe, the team’s sexy shortstop and baseball’s most ineligible bachelor. BASES LOADED Ty has sworn off relationships in order to focus on his all-star career, but with his best friend gone, his team struggling, and the press blaming him for every loss, the most recognizable man in the majors is in a slump. Until he starts spending his time off the field with a stern blonde who recites baseball stats for kicks and sees through his arrogant façade. TWO OUT As the Thrashers’ season gets into full swing and Gwen adjusts to her new job, their fun banter and friendly teasing turns into stolen kisses and countless steamy nights. The team’s strict policy against player-staff relationships throws a curve ball into the mix, but they can’t hide from their feelings any more than the most famous man in baseball can hide from the spotlight…
I need to play catch up this month on my review pile. I read some books outside of my TBR pile last month and then I went through a week or two of not reading much of anything which put me behind so this is going to be one of the first books I pick up off my review pile. I enjoyed the one book that I read by Keyes and this one sounds like my kind of romance so I’m all over this one. Eyes on Me by Rachel Harris Releases on March 26, 2019 Publisher: Entangled, Entangled Teen Genres: Young Adult Pages: 320 Format: eARC Source: NetGalley
Look up the word “nerd” and you’ll find Lily Cooper’s picture. She’s got one goal: first stop valedictorian, next stop Harvard. Until a stint in the hospital from too much stress lands her in the last place a klutz like her ever expected to be: salsa dance lessons. Look up the word “popular” and you’ll find Stone Torres’s picture. His life seems perfect—star of the football team, straight-A student, lots of friends. But his family is struggling to make ends meet, so if pitching in at the Torres dance studio helps, he’ll do it. When Lily’s dad offers Stone extra cash to volunteer as Lily’s permanent dance partner, he can’t refuse. But with each dip and turn, each moment her hand is in his, his side job starts to feel all too real. But in dance, as in life, one wrong move and someone could get hurt.
I meant to read this last month but that didn’t happen and I’m blaming the time that I got royally sick over some issues I was having with my new prescription. That put me out of commission for an entire day and the rest of the week, I wasn’t feeling too hot so my desire to do anything was next to nil and reading was included in that mess. I’ll knock this one off this month, definitely. The Austen Playbook (London Celebrities #4) by Lucy Parker Releases on April 22, 2019 Publisher: Carina Press Genres: Contemporary, Romance Pages: 400 Format: eARC Source: NetGalley
In which experienced West End actress Freddy Carlton takes on an Austen-inspired play, a scandal at a country estate, an enthusiastic search for a passion outside of acting…and the (some people might say icy*) heart of London’s most feared theater critic. *if those people were being nice Freddy Carlton knows she should be focusing on her lines for The Austen Playbook, a live-action TV event where viewers choose the outcome of each scene, but her concentration’s been blown. The palatial estate housing the endeavor is now run by the rude (brilliant) critic who’s consistently slammed her performances of late. James “Griff” Ford-Griffin has a penchant for sarcasm, a majestic nose and all the sensitivity of a sledgehammer. She can’t take her eyes off him. Griff can hardly focus with a contagious joy fairy flitting about near him, especially when Freddy looks at him like that. His only concern right now should be on shutting down his younger brother’s well-intentioned (disastrous) schemes—or at the very least on the production (not this one) that might save his family home from the banks. Instead all he can think of is soft skin and vibrant curls. As he’s reluctantly dragged into her quest to rediscover her passion for the stage and Freddy is drawn into his research on a legendary theater star, the adage about appearances being deceiving proves abundantly true. It’s the unlikely start of something enormous…but a single revelation about the past could derail it all.
We’re getting Freddy’s book and I’m super excited about it. This is on my review pile for March and I’m stoked because I’ve been looking forward to Freddy’s book since the last book in this series. This is a fun and pretty addicting series and I’m so looking forward to more. You’d be Mine by Erin Hahn Releases on April 2, 2019 Publisher: Indie Published Genres: Contemporary, Young Adult Pages: 304 Format: eARC Source: NetGalley
Annie Mathers is America’s sweetheart and heir to a country music legacy full of all the things her Gran warned her about. Superstar Clay Coolidge is most definitely going to end up one of those things. But unfortunately for Clay, if he can’t convince Annie to join his summer tour, his music label is going to drop him. That’s what happens when your bad boy image turns into bad boy reality. Annie has been avoiding the spotlight after her parents’ tragic death, except on her skyrocketing YouTube channel. Clay’s label wants to land Annie, and Clay has to make it happen. Swayed by Clay’s undeniable charm and good looks, Annie and her band agree to join the tour. From the start fans want them to be more than just tour mates, and Annie and Clay can’t help but wonder if the fans are right. But if there’s one part of fame Annie wants nothing to do with, it’s a high-profile relationship. She had a front row seat to her parents’ volatile marriage and isn’t interested in repeating history. If only she could convince her heart that Clay, with his painful past and head over heels inducing tenor, isn’t worth the risk. Erin Hahn’s thrilling debut, You’d Be Mine, asks: can the right song and the perfect summer on the road make two broken hearts whole?
I’ve had this book for review for a few months now and it’s time to get this one read. March is the month that this book will be read and reviewed. When We Left Cuba by Chanel Cleeton Releases on April 9, 2019 Publisher: Penguin, Berkley Genres: Historical, Fiction Pages: 368 Format: eARC Source: NetGalley
In 1960s Florida, a young Cuban exile will risk her life–and heart–to take back her country in this exhilarating historical novel from the author of Next Year in Havana, a Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick. Beautiful. Daring. Deadly. The Cuban Revolution took everything from sugar heiress Beatriz Perez–her family, her people, her country. Recruited by the CIA to infiltrate Fidel Castro’s inner circle and pulled into the dangerous world of espionage, Beatriz is consumed by her quest for revenge and her desire to reclaim the life she lost. As the Cold War swells like a hurricane over the shores of the Florida Strait, Beatriz is caught between the clash of Cuban American politics and the perils of a forbidden affair with a powerful man driven by ambitions of his own. When the ever-changing tides of history threaten everything she has fought for, she must make a choice between her past and future–but the wrong move could cost Beatriz everything–not just the island she loves, but also the man who has stolen her heart…
Another review book but it’s also a book that I’ve been seeing such great early reviews for so I’m pretty stoked to be getting to this one. I’ll probably be reading the first book too. I can’t wait. The Key to Happily Ever After by Tif Marcelo Releases on April 23, 2019 Publisher: Simon & Schuster, Gallery Genres: Contemporary, Women’s Fiction Pages: 320 Format: eARC Source: NetGalley
A charming romantic comedy about three sisters who are struggling to keep the family wedding planning business afloat—all the while trying to write their own happily-ever-afters in the process. All’s fair in love and business. The de la Rosa family and their wedding planning business have been creating happily ever afters in the Washington, DC area for years, making even the most difficult bride’s day a fairytale. But when their parents announce their retirement, the sisters—Marisol, Janelyn, and Pearl—are determined to take over the business themselves. But the sisters quickly discover that the wedding business isn’t all rings and roses. There are brides whose moods can change at the drop of a hat; grooms who want to control every part of the process; and couples who argue until their big day. As emotions run high, the de la Rosa sisters quickly realize one thing: even when disaster strikes—whether it’s a wardrobe malfunction or a snowmageddon in the middle of a spring wedding—they’ll always have each other. Perfect for fans of the witty and engaging novels of Amy E. Reichert and Susan Mallery, The Key to Happily Ever After is a fresh romantic comedy that celebrates the crucial and profound power of sisterhood.
I’ve been looking forward to this book for some time as well and it’s up for review so I’ll be knocking this one out, hopefully. Fumbled (Play Book #2) by Alexa Martin Releases on April 23, 2019 Publisher: Penguin, Berkley Genres: Contemporary, Romance Pages: 336 Format: earc Source: NetGalley
A second chance doesn’t guarantee a touchdown in this new contemporary romance from the author of Intercepted. Single-mother Poppy Patterson moved across the country when she was sixteen and pregnant to find a new normal. After years of hard work, she’s built a life she loves. It may include a job at a nightclub, weekend soccer games, and more stretch marks than she anticipated, but it’s all hers, and nobody can take that away. Well, except for one person. T.K. Moore, the starting wide receiver for the Denver Mustangs, dreamt his entire life about being in the NFL. His world is football, parties, and women. Maybe at one point he thought his future would play out with his high school sweetheart by his side, but Poppy is long gone and he’s moved on. When Poppy and TK cross paths in the most unlikely of places, emotions they’ve suppressed for years come rushing back. But with all the secrets they never told each other lying between them, they’ll need more than a dating playbook to help them navigate their relationship.
I love me some sports romances and this one sounds like a good one so I’m going to be all over this one, for sure. If I can fit in a read of the first book before I jump into this one, that will be ideal but more than anything, I need to read this one so wish me luck on that. Overnight Sensation (Brooklyn Bruisers #5) by Sarina Bowen Released on January 22, 2019 Publisher: Indie Published, Tuxbury Publishing LLC Genres: Contemporary, Romance Pages: 338 Format: eBook Source: Purchased
Everyone knows the girl is off limits. But it’s so good to be bad. There’s this girl… Heidi and I have been trading hungry looks all year, and everything she does makes me smile. But I don’t do girlfriends, and I certainly can’t get involved with the league commissioner’s daughter. I need shots on goal, not a hookup and a widely misunderstood paparazzi photo. Can I resist her, though? The way she teases me should be a game penalty for interference with my libido. There’s this guy… Jason wants me, but he won’t admit it. That man looks at me the way a hockey player eyes the lunch buffet after practice—and I love it. But when victory is finally within my grasp, I blow it and humiliate myself. Even then I can’t even avoid him—as the team intern, I’m in constant view of his hard body and cocky smile. I need another chance. Jason Castro is about to learn the true meaning of an overnight sensation.
Holly and I will be reading and reviewing this book together on Book Binge next month so be on the lookout for that. I’ve been meaning to read this ever since it showed up on my kindle, on the release day but I never got around to it. Coulda, shoulda, woulda but didn’t but not anymore…I’m reading this shit in March. The Right Swipe (Modern Love #1) by Alisha Rai Releases on July 2, 2019 Publisher: Harper Collins Genres: Contemporary, Romance Pages: 384 Format: eARC Source: Edelweiss
Alisha Rai returns with the first book in her sizzling new Modern Love series, in which two rival dating app creators find themselves at odds in the boardroom but in sync in the bedroom. Rhiannon Hunter may have revolutionized romance in the digital world, but in real life she only swipes right on her career—and the occasional hookup. The cynical dating app creator controls her love life with a few key rules: – Nude pics are by invitation only – If someone stands you up, block them with extreme prejudice – Protect your heart Only there aren’t any rules to govern her attraction to her newest match, former pro-football player Samson Lima. The sexy and seemingly sweet hunk woos her one magical night… and disappears. Rhi thought she’d buried her hurt over Samson ghosting her, until he suddenly surfaces months later, still big, still beautiful—and in league with a business rival. He says he won’t fumble their second chance, but she’s wary. A temporary physical partnership is one thing, but a merger of hearts? Surely that’s too high a risk…
I’m putting this book on my TBR pile for March because dude, I didn’t know that the hero in this book was Samoan. I’m Samoan and I’ve been dying for romances with characters just like me so I’m making room for this one on my TBR pile for next month because finally, my brown folks are getting some love and I’m itching to see how this Samoan character plays out. I’m excited! The Last Letter by Rebecca Yarros Released on February 26, 2019 Publisher: Entangled, Entangled Amara Genres: Contemporary, Romance Pages: 432 Format: eBook Source: Purchased
Beckett, If you’re reading this, well, you know the last-letter drill. You made it. I didn’t. Get off the guilt train, because I know if there was any chance you could have saved me, you would have. I need one thing from you: get out of the army and get to Telluride. My little sister Ella’s raising the twins alone. She’s too independent and won’t accept help easily, but she has lost our grandmother, our parents, and now me. It’s too much for anyone to endure. It’s not fair. And here’s the kicker: there’s something else you don’t know that’s tearing her family apart. She’s going to need help. So if I’m gone, that means I can’t be there for Ella. I can’t help them through this. But you can. So I’m begging you, as my best friend, go take care of my sister, my family. Please don’t make her go through it alone. Ryan
Ames and I will be reviewing this together here on this blog in the month of March as Ames has chosen it for our buddy review. I’d never heard of this book or this author before so it’ll be a new to me delight, fingers crossed. Stay tuned for that. Magic Bites (Kate Daniels #1) by Ilona Andrews Released on March 27, 2007 Publisher: Penguin, Ace Genres: Urban Fantasy Pages: 260 Format: eBook Source: Purchased
Atlanta would be a nice place to live, if it weren’t for the magic… When the magic is up, rogue mages cast their spells and monsters appear, while guns refuse to fire and cars fail to start. But then technology returns, and the magic recedes as unpredictably as it arose, leaving all kinds of paranormal problems in its wake. Kate Daniels is a down-on-her-luck mercenary who makes her living cleaning up these magical problems. But when Kate’s guardian is murdered, her quest for justice draws her into a power struggle between two strong factions within Atlanta’s magic circles. The Masters of the Dead, necromancers who can control vampires, and the Pack, a paramilitary clan of shapechangers, blame each other for a series of bizarre killings—and the death of Kate’s guardian may be part of the same mystery. Pressured by both sides to find the killer, Kate realizes she’s way out of her league—but she wouldn’t have it any other way…
The last book on my TBR pile for this month is my featured review book for Book Binge. Casee, Holly, and I will be reading and reviewing this together over there so I’ll definitely be reading this one. I’m pretty stoked about this read because I’ve been wanting to start the Kate Daniels series for ages and now I have to. Yippy skippy! What books are on your TBR pile for March? Anything good that I should keep my eye out on? Please share the books you have on deck to read next month.
