What I’m Reading…
Ok…I have to admit I didn’t love the first book in this series, A Court of Thorns and Roses. Feyre didn’t do anything for me and Tamlin…eh. The book got better Under the Mountain (love how she capitalizes that!) and because of that, and how amazing Sarah Maas’ Throne of Glass series is, I gave this one a try.
Thank God I did!
So good! It’s sucked me right in, so much that I brought it to my son’s baseball game last night and was reading it between innings! (Trust me, I don’t read at games – I’m one of those moms jumping up and down, cheering them on) Normally, I don’t have much success with second books in a series, but for me, this one is better than the first. And that’s because of Rhysand! Tamlin is too Edward-ish for me (as in Edward Cullen, Twilight series) so Feyre is so much more likable with Rhys and his court. I hope she stays. I hope the book stays this good, or gets even better.
I have to go read another chapter now
What I’ve Read…
Blurb – Drew Evans is a winner. Handsome and arrogant, he makes multimillion dollar business deals and seduces New York’s most beautiful women with just a smile. He has loyal friends and an indulgent family. So why has he been shuttered in his apartment for seven days, miserable and depressed?
He’ll tell you he has the flu.
But we all know that’s not really true.
Katherine Brooks is brilliant, beautiful and ambitious. She refuses to let anything – or anyone – derail her path to success. When Kate is hired as the new associate at Drew’s father’s investment banking firm, every aspect of the dashing playboy’s life is thrown into a tailspin. The professional competition she brings is unnerving, his attraction to her is distracting, his failure to entice her into his bed is exasperating.
Then, just when Drew is on the cusp of having everything he wants, his overblown confidence threatens to ruin it all. Will he be able untangle his feelings of lust and tenderness, frustration and fulfillment? Will he rise to the most important challenge of his life?
Can Drew Evans win at love?
Tangled is not your mother’s romance novel. It is an outrageous, passionate, witty narrative about a man who knows a lot about women…just not as much as he thinks he knows. As he tells his story, Drew learns the one thing he never wanted in life, is the only thing he can’t live without.
This was an adorable read. The story is from Drew’s POV and really, he’s a bit of an arrogant ass, but so lovable. And even with his somewhat sexist comments and idiot decisions, you really want him to work things out with Kate. I heard good things about Emma Chase and I enjoyed Tangled so much, I’ll try her other books.
Blurb – The year is 1956, and the Axis powers of the Third Reich and Imperial Japan rule. To commemorate their Great Victory, Hitler and Emperor Hirohito host the Axis Tour: an annual motorcycle race across their conjoined continents. The victor is awarded an audience with the highly reclusive Adolf Hitler at the Victor’s Ball in Tokyo.
Yael, a former death camp prisoner, has witnessed too much suffering, and the five wolves tattooed on her arm are a constant reminder of the loved ones she lost. The resistance has given Yael one goal: Win the race and kill Hitler. A survivor of painful human experimentation, Yael has the power to skinshift and must complete her mission by impersonating last year’s only female racer, Adele Wolfe. This deception becomes more difficult when Felix, Adele twin’s brother, and Luka, her former love interest, enter the race and watch Yael’s every move.
But as Yael grows closer to the other competitors, can she bring herself to be as ruthless as she needs to be to avoid discovery and complete her mission?
This was really good. There could be more to Yael to make her more likable but the plot, the setting, the alternate history was great. I’d say more about it but really want to go and read more of Court of Mist and Fury!
What I’ll Read Next…
No idea. ACoMF is huge! But I’ll be spending lots of time at baseball diamond this weekend so hopefully I’ll get lots of reading done between games!
What about you? What’s keeping you up at night?
