What a beautiful Monday! I have been non-stop these past few weeks that I haven’t been able to sit down and write a blog. Plus, as soon as I sit down on my couch at night, my eyes close!
However… I do have good news! One- I am out of my reading slump thanks to Georgia Cates. Her book was amazing and a one day finisher. Two- I just finished reading Dear Ave by Ilsa Madden Mills and it was a book that I wanted to put down ONLY because I didn’t want it to end. So both two great books by two amazing authors!
Waiting for my Queen by Georgia Cates
Review: 5 out of 5 STARS!
Wow! This book really pulled me from my reading slump and put me right back where I need to be.
I have read other books by Georgia Cates but this one was a book I just could not put down. At first, I wasn’t sure if I would like that it was set in a different decade. But soon realized that I loved that it was. I even forgot at times that it was set in a different decade because I kept on thinking “just call him on his cell phone!”
The story line was planned and plotted so well that I just needed to keep reading and if I didn’t need to be somewhere else, the book would have been finished in a few hours. I just needed to know what was going to happen!
I can keep on rambling about the characters, the description of the mafia, the story line, and everything else however, it is best if you go read this book. I promise you, you won’t be disappointed!
All I’ve ever wanted was to marry for love.
But girls like me don’t have that luxury.
We are used as pawns in a game we can’t control.
The game? It’s called Mafia.
I was foolish enough to try to change the rules… and I lost.
She was promised to me years ago.
And he dared to take her from me.
Dared to touch what was mine.
I put an end to that.
I hope he’s enjoying the view from his dirt room.
My beloved’s killer placed a ruby ring on my finger and called me his queen.
But that red gem symbolizes something different for me.
It represents the blood shed by those I love most.
Hell was empty the day we wed.
Because the devil was standing before me and said “I do.”
I saw her as a possession.
A shiny toy I didn’t want other boys to play with.
But she’s so much more.
Beautiful and brave and strong and broken all at once.
She tastes like everything I’ve ever wanted.
Hidden and patient.
I wait for the perfect time to seek my revenge.
But slowly, I feel him possessing me.
His heart is full of darkness… and I still want every inch of him.
Hard as I try, I can’t escape loving this beautiful monster.
I’m waiting patiently because I already know that she’s mine.
Mine in a way that no one will ever understand.
Even if she hasn’t yet realized it.
For love, I’d do anything.
For her, I’d do everything.
This book just released! Go get your copy NOW!
Did you ever start reading a book that you wanted to keep on going forever? That is how I felt with Dear Ava by Ilsa Madden Mills. I started reading it on Friday and by Sunday, I had to put it down because I didn’t want it to end. So I decided to do laundry and clean up the kitchen. After, I picked the book up and finished it. It was just a good book that I wanted to read more of Knox and Tulip!
5 out of 5 STARS!
The rich and popular Sharks rule at prestigious, ivy-covered Camden Prep. Once upon a time, I wanted to be part of their world–until they destroyed me.
The last thing I expected was an anonymous love letter from one of them.
Please. I hate every one of those rich jerks for what they did to me. The question is, which Shark is my secret admirer?
Knox, the scarred quarterback.
Dane, his twin brother.
Or Chance, the ex who dumped me. . .
Your eyes are the color of the Caribbean Sea.
Wait. That’s stupid.
What I really mean is, you look at me and I feel something REAL.
It’s been ten months since you were here, but I can’t forget you.
I’ve missed seeing you walk down the hall.
I’ve missed you cheering at my football games.
I’ve missed the smell of your hair.
And then everything fell apart the night of the kegger.
Don’t hate me because I’m a Shark.
I just want to make you mine.
** This story starts off a little dark/intense in the beginning.
I am now starting a book called We Are Us by Tara Leigh. I haven’t heard much about this book but that is what makes it fun.
Not only am I reading non-stop but we are also putting the baby room together. We just completed the baby’s reading corner with book shelves. It looks so cute! We are starting to hang Woodland Animals around the room and getting organized. It is coming along very slowly but I couldn’t be more happier to meet this little bundle of joy! I just started third trimester so I am in month seven. We are getting so close!
I hope you have a wonderful work week!
