Review Recap: June 2017

Monday, July 3, 2017

My blog exploded this past June with 12 new reviews! I think that might be the highest I’ve ever posted in one month. And what a great month it was! I read a few new-to-me authors, started a few different series and continued on with some I’m in love with. It was an excellent month!!! Check them out and tell me what you think!

  Alex 1

4-5-stars

Alex (Cold Fury #1) by Sawyer Bennett

Amazon | Barnes and Noble | iTunes

I have been dying to start this series and am so glad I finally did. I was immediately hooked. Loved this! [Full review]



Deadly Silence

3-5-stars

Deadly Silence (Blood Brothers #1) by Rebecca Zanetti

Amazon | Barnes and Noble | iTunes

I liked this a lot. It was action packed and had a lot going on (a lot!) which made it super entertaining and slightly chaotic at times. I enjoyed the overall storyline and I really liked all the different characters introduced and the different elements that were in play. [Full review]



Dating You Hating You

4-stars

Dating You / Hating You by Christina Lauren

Amazon | Barnes and Noble | iTunes

The spectacular writing dual of Christina Lauren have done it again with this unique and fun romantic comedy! Laugh-out-loud funny with interesting characters that had fantastic, witty banter as well as playful animosity. Add in some sweet and sexy, some drama, and a whole lot of tension and you've got just the right mix to pull off a fantastic romantic comedy. Let's not forget a well rounded cast of characters too. This was a truly awesome read! [Full review]



Steal Me

4-stars

Steal Me (New York’s Finest #2) by Lauren Layne

Amazon | Barnes and Noble | iTunes

This was so sweet! I enjoyed every second of Anthony and Maggie's story. I liked the writing, the details, and the build to them coming together. [Full review]



The Rancher and the City Girl

4-5-stars

The Rancher and the City Girl (Tempting the Rancher #1) by Joya Ryan

Amazon | Barnes and Noble | iTunes

So fun, sweet, and sexy! This was a charming, fast paced read that had a lot of heart and the perfect amount of heat. Loved it! [Full review]

4-stars

Silver Silence (Psy-Changeling Trinity #1) by Nalini Singh

Amazon | Barnes and Noble | iTunes

This is my first book by Nalini Singh and really enjoyed it. It was super elaborate and I loved the world the author created. It took me until about 25% to really get into it. That first bit was pretty much a crash course of who was who and what was what. There's a lot of info in a short amount of time but once it was all laid out, I was good to go! [Full review]



Crave Me

4-stars

Crave Me (Luminous #2) by Stacey Lynn

Amazon | Barnes and Noble | iTunes

My, my. That was HOT! It jumps right into it and I was immediately excited for Simon and Chloe's story. [Full review]

Trouble Walks In (The McGuire Brothers #2) by Sara Humphreys

This was a super fun, easy read and I totally enjoyed it. It's pretty fast paced with likable characters. It was really entertaining and sweet and had a nice element of suspense mixed in. Really great read! [Full review]



Wicked Favor AMAZON

5-stars

Wicked Favor (Wicked Horse Vegas #1) by Sawyer Bennett

Amazon | Barnes and Noble | iTunes

Wicked Favor was so incredibly fantastic! There was off the charts, smoking hot sex, awesome characters, and a wonderful story that was so sweet and playful. Great writing and flow between the POV’s that had me hooked. I could not put it down! For all these reasons and so many more is why Sawyer Bennett will always be a go-to author for me. Loved this so much! [Full review]

In June I celebrated my 4 year blogiversary! Woot! That’s pretty big right? Once again I have to say, THANK YOU dear reader for being here. For your support, all the comments, likes and tweets. Y’all are the best!



summer-2017-reads


I shared my Top 12 Hot Summer Reads of 2017. Of course there are more that I want to read (my TBR is over flowing, lol!), but these are the books that are high up on my radar.


Did you see the gorgeous new covers for The Gamble, Sweet Dreams, and Lady Luck by Kristen Ashley? Check them out HERE. I LOVE this series so much and highly recommend it.


I have no idea what July will bring. I’m just going to play it by ear. I’m working on reviews only, fewer spotlights and cover reveals though there might be a few shared here and there. Basically less tours and more of me just doing my thing. :-)


Hope you have a wonderful July!!!
