My Bag Of Books

Here is a love of a good read. Life is too short to waste time and money on bad books.

Madfall by Grace Draven, Dana Marton

Yes, here there be dragons. Although I am not much of a fantasy reader. These two novellas were interesting. Of the two stories Dragon Lord was my top pick. Draconus was mostly steam. Dragon Lord has a story line along with the steam. Both were entertaining and a distraction from my norm. Entertaining read. 

Summer Again by Julia Gabriel

Summer Again (St. Caroline Series) - Julia Gabriel

Together, separate and then back together, seems to be a strong trend in romance books. This was a better read than I expected. The story circled around the two main characters and was interestingly done. No steam, just the feel and it is left to the reader’s imagination. Enjoyable, needed a little editing, but it is a small distraction. 

Nearness Of You by Iris Morland

The Nearness of You (The Thorntons Book 1) - Iris Morland

Nothing new here. This was just a flat line. It would work well if you are looking for a quick easy read, nothing to really think about, just a time filler. Ok read. 

Pull You Through by Kaylee Ryan

Title: Pull You Through

Author: Kaylee Ryan

Genre: New Adult/Military

Release Date: June 12, 2018

 

Life is a series of events, one leading you to another. The hell I lived through with my drug-addicted parents led me to the Marine Corps. Committing my life to my country was easy. My brothers were my family--all I had and all I needed. I wasn’t looking for her, but I should have known life had other plans.

 

It led me to her.

 

From the moment we met, I knew he was different--I just didn’t realize he'd change my life. He was a guy on leave, an acquaintance. Until he was something more, something unforgettable. I never imagined he'd leave ten days later, taking a piece of me with him. Then again, maybe I did know. I just didn't care.

 

He was worth it.

AUTHOR BIO

 

Blair Babylon is an award-winning, USA Today bestselling author who used to publish literary fiction. Because professional reviews of her other fiction usually included the caveat that there was too much deviant sex and too much interesting plot, she decided to abandon all literary pretensions, let her freak flag fly, and write hot, sexy, suspenseful romance.

Desperate Girls by Laura Griffin

Desperate Girls - Laura Griffin

Enjoyable read. The story has a few bland spots but picks up and recovers.  There are some plot twists, intrigue, a little mystery, the saving grace of this story.  The romance is kind of redundant, has been done many times before, not a bad thing, just same ol’, same ol’. One of my questions is where did the title come from?  Sure murder of girls/women, however this is a book about one woman.  All in all a decent read. 

"“You're going to carry her with you through your life. It won't be enough, but it will be something. And what choice do you have?""
Desperate Play - Barbara Freethy

Said by Wyatt. Hard truth regarding a loss. 

Desperate Play by Barbara Freethy

Desperate Play - Barbara Freethy

Book three in this series. Plenty of intrigue, questions and twists in this one. Outstanding story and romance to top it all off. There were a couple of places the story bottomed out, then spun back up into the mystery you expect. The whole series is a good read, don’t miss it. 

A Shameless Little Bet by Meli Raine

A Shameless Little Bet

Author: Meli Raine
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: June 5, 2018
 


 
How do I prove a negative?
 
I need to prove Jane is innocent, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.
 
Mirrors, smoke, and lies can conjure a truth that isn't real. Money, bribes, and power can twist reality. What we call proof is all an elaborate magic act.
 
So is love.
 
How do you prove you're in love? How can you know with unrelenting certainty that the person you can't live without really loves you?
 
It's all about what you believe. Who you believe. And I believe Jane. I love her. But it might be too late.
 
Or, worse-it might all be an illusion. If proof is just a magician's sleight of hand, then we're caught in a sick trick.
 
A deadly one.
 
One that doesn't end with applause.
 
But with a bang.
 
Read the stunning conclusion to the Shameless series as Jane and Silas fight against forces that conspire to keep them apart -- maybe forever.

In A Faraway Land (Runaway Princess book 3) by Blair Babylon

Blair’s books are always at the top of my “must read” list. This third book is no exception. Twisty intrigue make this continuation such an involved excellent story. Of course included is Blair’s signature romance and steam. There was a point I thought of the adage “when life hands you lemons, make lemonade”.  Several places touch on current and overwhelming Economic issues. Do not miss this third in the series and if you have not read the first two, now is the time.

Threat of Danger by Dana Marton

Exciting is one of the words to describe this book. There is intrigue, drama, heartbreak and romance and a large dose of evil. This is an excellent read and now ties my other favorite Dana Marton book “Girl in the Water”. I guessed who the bad guy was about half way into the story, but was not absolutely sure until the end. There is a disturbing quality to the story that makes this a truly excellent read. On an other note “stuntwomany” is my favorite word. Excellent read.

Shelter in Place by Nora Roberts narrated by January LaVoy

Shelter in Place - Nora Roberts

Finished the audio and think I need to listen again. I had many interruptions, because life happens. I enjoyed this book, it is tragic, sad and evil in places but also fun, romantic and sweet. One of Nora Roberts best. 

On a Night Like this by Barbara Freethy

On A Night Like This - Barbara Freethy

Good read, a little light at the end.  This is a great vacation read, the beach, lounge chair and an adult beverage along with this book. No disappointment here.
