Mini Review: The Sweetest Goodbye (Roadmap To Your Heart #3.5) by: Christina Lee

Release Date: January 13, 2017
Goodreads | Amazon

"Billie Montgomery was always known as the sick kid with the therapy dog. Dylan Bowden never
had two nickels to rub together, let alone a true home to call his own. The two have been best friends since high school. They’re always there for each other, so when Billie opens his own bakery called Montgomery’s Sweets no one supports him better than Dylan.

The business is a success, and Billie figures he’s got everything he needs. Everything except the guy he’s been saving himself for, no matter how often Dylan tells him it’s time to move on. After a night out turns into a sexy exchange between the best friends, they pretend like nothing happened. Besides, Billie’s still holding a torch for somebody else, and Dylan has always been a considerable flirt.

When Billie’s first love unexpectedly breezes through town and life throws him a pretty rough curve ball, will Billie seek solace in the one man he’s pining for, or the only guy who’s ever protected his heart?"

My Thoughts:

When I read The Deepest Blue, I immediately fell in love with Billie. So naturally I was super excited for this novella. I really enjoyed this story and I loved Billie and Dylan so so much. This was a great friends to lovers story and really shows that what you think you want isn’t always what you need. This is the kind of book that just made my heart happy and I loved watching these two come together. This was a sweet yet steamy read and I devoured it. Christina Lee delivered again and I’m so glad she gave us this story.

Add To Goodreads

"Having barely escaped the clutches of the Guard, Sefia and Archer are back on the run, slipping into the safety of the forest to tend to their wounds and plan their next move. Haunted by painful memories, Archer struggles to overcome the trauma of his past with the impressors, whose cruelty plagues him whenever he closes his eyes. But when Sefia and Archer happen upon a crew of impressors in the wilderness, Archer finally finds a way to combat his nightmares: by hunting impressors and freeing the boys they hold captive.

With Sefia’s help, Archer travels across the kingdom of Deliene rescuing boys while she continues to investigate the mysterious Book and secrets it contains. But the more battles they fight, the more fights Archer craves, until his thirst for violence threatens to transform him from the gentle boy Sefia knows to a grim warrior with a cruel destiny. As Sefia begins to unravel the threads that connect Archer’s fate to her parents’ betrayal of the Guard so long ago, she and Archer must figure out a way to subvert the Guard’s plans before they are ensnared in a war that will pit kingdom against kingdom, leaving their future and the safety of the entire world hanging in the balance." 

The Reader was so good and so different and I cannot wait to get my hands on The Speaker and see where this series goes!

The Speaker will be released on November 7, 2017.
What are you waiting on?

20 Thoughts I Had While Reading My Hellion, My Heart (Lords Of Essex #3) by Amalie Howard & Angie Morgan

Release Date: July 24, 2017
from Entangled Publishing: Select Historical
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review.
"He fought battles for crown and country. She waged war for his heart.

Lord Henry Radcliffe, the scarred but sinfully sexy Earl of Langlevit, is a beast. The only way Henry can exorcise the demons of his war-ravaged past is through intense physicality. In and out of bed. An endeavor that has no shortage of willing participants.

Intent on scandalizing London, Princess Irina Volkonsky is a hellion and every gentleman’s deepest desire...except for one. Irina knows better than to provoke the wickedly forbidding earl, but she will stop at nothing short of ruination to win the heart of the only man she’s ever loved.

But when one scandalous kiss makes dangerous passions ignite, neither of them can fight their sizzling attraction. When a sinister plot emerges to threaten them both, they will have to fight one last battle, this time for the ultimate"

My Thoughts:

1. I love this series. I am ready!
2. Also a moment to appreciate the gorgeous cover
Okay let's proceed.
3. Irina you have grown into quite a sassy person and I love it.
4. Oh Henry you are a broody one… I love it.
5. That was HOT *fans self*
6. One thing with historicals… everyone has such crazy names and I need them to stop and just be like Joe or something.
7. I love seeing Gray again and Lana too! I wubbs them.
8. Max is not the best of friends is he.
9. This betting nonsense is making me cranky.
10. Agreed. Chocolate does solve everything. Irina is clearly a genius.
11. Henry is being a real jerk. I’m sure I will forgive him but right now I am giving him my best angry face.
12. Okay but really this betting is getting out of hand.
13. No no no this is certainly NOT a marvelous idea.
14. Henry. You really do deserve more. Listen to the smart ladies telling you so. *sobs*
15. I’m seriously beginning to dislike Max.
16. No this is stupid. Don’t fall for the guilt trip!
17. I absolutely adore Rose. She is so wonderful.
18. I. KNEW. IT. I am so smart!

Wrap Up
I have enjoyed every book in this series so far and My Hellion, My Heart was no exception. I so loved Irina and Henry and their chemistry was insane. Amalie Howard and Angie Morgan know how to deliver a good historical romance!

Recent Reads: Princesses and Distractions

Recent Reads is feature here on the blog. The point is to feature books I've read recently in quick recap fashion with fun info-graphics. The info-graphics came from the Bookout app, which is a great app for bloggers. You can log quotes and thoughts and track your reading stats (and no I'm not paid for this, I just really like this app). Recently I dove into worlds of princesses and distractions.

On My Shelf: The Vicious Deep by: Zoraida Cordova

On My Shelf is a feature I started here on the blog and I'm sure there are a ton of similar ones out there, but basically I just wanted to start spotlighting some of the MANY backlist titles I have accumulated on my shelf and kindle. The idea is to spotlight an older book I have on my massive TBR. I also thought it would be a fun way to discuss these books with my fellow bloggers, get some of your thoughts and figure out which ones I need to read ASAP and which ones can wait a bit more. And if you want to join in too, I would love to see what is on your shelf! Just leave me a link in the comments.

I grabbed this one at BEA a few years ago almost at random. I walked by the booth, saw a pretty cover and that the author was signing and just got on line. Of course it has now been years and I still haven't gotten around to this one. I still love the cover and it does sound really cool but you know how it is: so many books so little time.

So tell me. Have you read it? Did you love it? Hate it? Was it meh?
