Week in Books v2

..and I’m back! I read 4 books this week and I’m still in my reading groove right now. So stinkin’ excited to be reading again.

The highlight of this week was Brenna’s senior pictures. Here’s a picture that I snapped during her photo shoot. I thought she did great but I’m biased. 🙂

Now her senior year is officially under way. Basketball fundraising has started, off-season conditioning has started and I just want everything to slow down.

Currently Reading


The Viscount and the Vixen (Hellions of Havisham #3) by Lorraine Heath.

Love begets madness. Viscount Locksley watched it happen to his father after his cherished wife’s death. But when his sire arranges to marry flame-haired fortune hunter Portia Gadstone, Locke is compelled to take drastic measures to stop the stunning beauty from taking advantage of the marquess. A marriage of mutual pleasure could be convenient, indeed… as long as inconvenient feelings don’t interfere.

Desperation forced Portia to agree to marry a madman. The arrangement will offer the protection she needs. Or so she believes until the marquess’s distractingly handsome son peruses the fine print… and takes his father’s place!

Now the sedate—and, more importantly, secure—union Portia planned has been tossed in favor of one simmering with wicked temptation and potential heartbreak. Because as she begins to fall for her devilishly seductive husband, her dark secrets surface and threaten to ruin them both—unless Locke is willing to risk all and open his heart to love.

It’s Locke time. 🙂

Read

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins | 3.5 out of 5
The Boy is Back (Boy #4) by Meg Cabot | 4 out of 5
To Love and to Cherish (Wedding Belles #3) by Lauren Layne | 4.5 out of 5
The Billionaire Next Door (Billionaire Bad Boys #2) by Jessica Lemmon | 4 out of 5

My favorite read of the week was To Love and to Cherish (Wedding Belles #3) by Lauren Layne. I was looking forward to reading Alexis and Logan’s story and Lauren Layne nailed their romance. It was just as great as the other books and I adored both Alexis and Logan. It was so much fun.

My least favorite read of the week goes to The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. Rachel, Megan and even Anna got on my hot damn nerves throughout the entire book but I still ended up liking the book. I couldn’t put the book down even though I was mad as hell at everyone and everything going on. The mystery was nailed though because as soon as I figured it out, I was shocked as shit and before I could lurch up in bed, my iPad fell on my face. Ha! So while I liked the book, it just wasn’t my favorite of the week.

Book Boyfriend


Logan Harris from To Love and to Cherish (Wedding Belles #3) by Lauren Layne.

He smiled down at her, his hands cupping her face. “Ask me again. Ask me the reason.”

Logan was everything that I was hoping he’d be from the previous books in this series and I finished his book with a great big smile on my face. Loved him.
