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 prize...love."

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!
20. This book made my heart happy. So good.

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?

Mini Review: Sin In San Fran (Great Exploitations #4) by: Nicole Williams

Release Date: February 11, 2014
Goodreads | Amazon

"Eve isn’t used to failure. Especially when it comes to her Errands, but that’s exactly where she finds herself waking up in a hospital bed, bruised and bloodied.

Not only has the Tucker Errand been derailed, Henry Callahan’s is about to do the same. When G informs Eve that the competition is moving in on Henry, she orders her to drop the Tucker Client and get back to Henry, forcing Eve to decide what’s more important: winning the big-time Errands, or keeping her promises to her small-time Clients. Whatever her answer, she knows one thing—she can’t succeed at both without threatening to fail everyone."

My Thoughts:

This serial is crazy addictive. I honestly don’t know why I never finished it when I first started it. This concept is so original and I just love that. I love that it crosses lines and plays with right and wrong. I adore Eve and I also adore Henry. I know we are supposed to believe he did something terrible, but I just don’t buy it. Everything we have seen and learned about Henry up until this point just does not mesh with what we are supposed to believe. I have no idea how Nicole is going to wrap all of this up in one more story but I can’t wait to see how she does.

It spotlilghts upcoming releases that we are dying to read.
Add To Goodreads

"In the first book of the Shaw Confessions, the companion series to the New York Times bestselling Mara Dyer novels, old skeletons are laid bare and new promises prove deadly. This is what happens after happily ever after.

Everyone thinks seventeen-year-old Noah Shaw has the world on a string.

They’re wrong.

Mara Dyer is the only one he trusts with his secrets and his future.

He shouldn’t.

And both are scared that uncovering the truth about themselves will force them apart.

They’re right. " 

Noah Shaw is one of my very favorite characters, so I am so so so excited for more of him. But I will admit that I am also terrified of this book because I need my Noah and Mara to be okay in the end!

The Becoming Of Noah Shaw will be released on November 7, 2017.
What are you waiting on?
