I'm finally out of my sick bed (food poisoning is no joke) and reading again. Finally picked up this title, weeks after release, and realized I had forgotten everything that happened in the first two books. 🙄 Need to find my notes to get a refresher.

CocktailsandBooks How many times is Mira going to give Seth a second chance? Ridiculous! Her constantly forgiving him and him breaking his heart does not make a heart-stopping romance. 4mo

Tempting Promises | Corinne Michaels

I wasn't sure what to expect from Rowan Whitlock, but let me tell you 🔥🔥🔥. In this installment of the Whitlock series, youngest brother Rowan tangles with next-door neighbor Charlotte and things get hot pretty fast. They say there is a fine line between love and hate and these two are almost professional tight-rope walkers.

Currently 📖 / 🎧 . There is so much happening in this book that I took a break for a few days. Back into it and can't wait to see how this wraps up. So far...

- I love Lidia...and she deserves whatever the Fae version of an Oscar is.
- Ithan and Tharion need to get their shite together. Honestly!
- 🤬 Autumn King 🤬
- Hunt's parental history 🤯

Here's hoping the last 1/4 of this book doesn't break me.

I was intrigued by the blurb when browsing through the Fantasy shelf in Barnes and Noble. When I found the title was on KU I was excited. Unfortunately, this book was silly in my opinion. The cast of characters who banded together didn't make sense. The love story between Keely and Caid, again, didn't make sense. I didn't care that one sister aligned herself on the wrong side. I pushed my way through, but by the end it didn't matter.

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Spice: 🌶️🌶️🌶️
It took me a while to stop saying “I race you“, IYKYK, but I enjoyed going back to F1 racing with K. Bromberg. This story was the perfect blend of angst, sunshine and smexy goodness. They may have started out a fouple, but Cruz and Madds totally went the distance.

📚📚 Re-Read 📚📚
I typically don't plan out too much of what I'm reading each month. But with the CC3 countdown starting, I knew I was going to need to dedicate some time for a re-read to get ready. Kicking that off with House of Earth and Blood. I've forgotten how much I loved the start of Bryce and Hunt.

Roman and Iris had to fight against Dacre's advances and his planned revenge on Enva. Told in alternating POVs the author takes us on a fantastic journey. I devoured this book and adored the story.

I participated in a Read-a-long with Entangled Insiders for this title.

I had high hopes for this title. The blurb, cover, and sprayed edges sucked me in so I was hoping this was going to be a title I loved. Unfortunately, it fell short for me. Too many holes and not enough development to make much sense when I finally got to the end.

Novella featuring Nephele and Neri. Nephele has the power to tame a feral wolf. He's practically a house pet now 😂. Must read in anticipation of Kingdom of the Forgotten (March 2024).

City of Ruin | Charissa Weaks
post image
Pickpick

Picking up where The Witch Collector left off, Raina and Alexus trying to determine their next steps against the Prince of the Eastlanders. At the same time, they need to save Colden, and beat the bad guys to the City of Ruin while trying to navigate new and returning magicks. A lot goes on, and you need to pay attention, especially with the multiple POVs we get with the story.

The Wolf and the Witch | Charissa Weaks

“I want to be the woman who wields a god against Thamaos. I want to be the woman who wields you.” Fuck me. She doesn‘t know it yet, but I fear she already is that woman.

Weaks, Charissa. The Wolf and the Witch (Witch Walker Book 3) (p. 30). City Owl Press. Kindle Edition.

There should be a warning about this book. Its a novella in the Witch Walker world. Series secondary characters, Neri and Nephele, are the main characters. I generally would have skipped the novella but this one is a must read. I'm glad I didn't follow my normal pattern.
