Weekend Reminisces #11

Hey, it's Friday, the start of the weekend.

So... lets focus on what's new for me.

What book(s) did I add to my shelf?

Conquering Love
(Montana Wilds #2)
Willow Summers 

Christie thought escaping to the dude ranch in rural Montana would help her forget. With a past like hers, intimacy is no longer an option, and running seems the only way. But when she meets a handsome and carefree ranch hand, suddenly his touch is all she can think about. 

Greg hasn’t given much thought to settling down. He’s happy working the ranch and living off the land. But the troubled yet spunky Christie has his head spinning and his heart aching. He’d sacrifice anything to see her smile. 

With Greg’s support, Christie must finally face the fears of her past. To fail would be to lose the one man that made her feel alive again. 

** This is a stand alone, full length book with HEA. 

A stand alone novel always sucks me in.

What did I finish reading?

(Rushed #1)
Gina Robinson

A girl who has everything. A guy who has everything to lose.

Some things can't be…


Like there has ever been any doubt which sorority my family expects me to pledge. I'm a third-generation legacy. On the first day of rush, I realize I'm in trouble. I'm not like the other girls in the house. But as long as my parents control my college funds, resisting is futile. Until Zach, the live-in houseboy, who's quite possibly the hottest guy I will ever meet, serves me a cupcake and flashes me a sympathetic look. With one enigmatic smile, he flips my heart and my world upside down. My parents will cut me off if they even suspect I'm interested in a house guy. But I can't stay away from him. And so I pledge the house for all the wrong reasons.

Living in a sorority? I get flipped a load of crap about being a live-in servant, the help. Easy access to the hottest girls on campus? Not with the unbreakable rule—get caught with one of the girls and you're fired. Immediately. Lose this job and I can't afford college. I sure as hell can't ask my parents for help. They wish I'd never been born. Considering what I did, I don't blame them. I've learned to think of the girls like sisters. Until Alexis pledges the house. Now sister is the last thing on my mind. 

*** Standalone novel. No cliffhanger. ***

This is a contemporary romance with mature themes, language, and situations. Readers should be over 17!

This was a quick and easy read. Nothing super but enjoyable nevertheless.
My rating: 4 out of 5

Aelin's journey from assassin to queen has entranced millions across the globe, and this fifth installment will leave fans breathless. Will Aelin succeed in keeping her world from splintering, or will it all come crashing down?

Waiting on Wednesday # 96 ~ Fire in You (Wait for You #6) by J. Lynn, Jennifer L. Armentrout

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine which spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.

This week I'm waiting on:

Fire in You
(Wait for You #6)
Jennifer L. Armentrout 

Expected publication: November 28th 2016

From the # 1 New York Times and International bestselling author, Jennifer L. Armentrout writing as J.Lynn, comes a richly moving story about heartbreak and guilt, second chances and hope. Full of familiar, fan-favorite characters and no two people more deserving of a happy ending, Fire In You will burn bright beyond the last page…

Jillian Lima’s whole world was destroyed in a span of a few hours. The same night her childhood love, Brock ‘the Beast’ Mitchell, broke her heart, her life was irrevocably altered by the hand of a stranger with a gun. It takes six years to slowly glue together the shattered pieces of her life, but Jillian is finally ready to stop existing in a past full of pain and regret. She takes a job at her father’s martial arts Academy and she’s going out on her first date since a failed relationship that was more yuck than yum. Jillian is determined to start living.

She just never expected Brock to be a part of her life again. But he’s firmly back in her life before she knows it, and not only is he older, he’s impossibly more handsome, more teasing and more everything. And when he sees Jillian, he’s no longer capable of thinking of her as the little girl who was his shadow growing up or the daughter of the man who gave him a second chance at life. He sees the woman who’d always been there for him, the one person who believed in him no matter what.

Brock knows she’s the one he should’ve made his, and what begins as a tentative friendship quickly turns to red-hot chemistry that sparks a flame that burns brighter than lust. Falling for Brock again risks more than her heart, because when the past sorrow-filled and guilt-ridden past resurfaces, and a web of lies threatens to rip them apart, the fallout could lay waste to everything they’ve fought to build together, and destroy the dreams of those they care most about.

So, what are you waiting for?
