Bring on the books!

I love summer reading. Here in Southern California the weather is warm and I want nothing more than to sit on the beach with a good book. Here are a few books that I'm really looking forward to.

The perfect daughter. The perfect prom queen. The perfect wife. Jenny Tolliver’s been the good girl all her life, and it’s gotten her nowhere. Now that her marriage has been busted up by her cheating ex, she’s decided it’s time to regroup and rediscover herself. This summer she’s headed back to her hometown of Destiny, Ohio, to the very lakeshore cottage where she grew up, to figure out what life holds in store for her next.

She never dreamed the answer would be Mick Brody, Destiny’s #1 hellraiser. He comes from the wrong side of the tracks (or in his case, the lake), and he’s landed in hot water more times than he can count. He’s exactly the kind of guy Jenny’s always kept her distance from … but soon the good girl and the bad boy are caught in a raw heat that’s out of control. Too bad Mick’s got a secret that threatens to tear them apart and ruin Jenny’s perfectly, passionately reckless summer …

Toni Blake is my favorite author and an auto buy for me. I can't wait to get my hands on the first book in her Destiny series. I know I'll be in for a treat.

Zack fights fires and saves lives, yet his own thirst for life has run dry—until he comes to the rescue of hardheaded, sharp-tongued exotic dancer Corrine Shannon, who sparks a carnal appetite that has the normally shy hero burning out of control.

But just as they are consumed by the flames of passion, they find themselves under fire from two relentless enemies with fifty million reasons to succeed. Dangerous men who will stop at nothing to get what they want, even if it means putting a permanent end to Zack and Cori’s love—or their lives. Can Zack and Cori withstand the heat??, or will their newfound romance be extinguished as fast as it began?

I read the first book in this series and loved it. The book was HOT and I have no doubt Zack will burn just as brightly.

An experiment in romance…

New to Charlotte, stock car racing country, graduate student Imogen Wilson meets Ty McCordle, a driver who inexplicably has her pulse racing. After an encounter at the track with a woman whose main goal in life is to marry a driver, Imogen realizes she’s hit on the perfect thesis for her Sociology degree. If she follows The Rules on how to get a man, can she steer her way to into the hearts of the drivers and establish their dating—and mating—patterns?

That’s testing the limits of passion.

Although sexy and reckless Ty is the ideal test subject, she knows she can’t pursue him for the sake of science. Yet he’s the one who’s chasing after her, and Imogen realizes that she actually wants to be caught. A southern gentleman like Ty won’t fail to disappoint, will satisfy all her curiosity—and make all the risks worthwhile…

Erin is another auto buy for me. I know when I pick up one of her books, I'm in for some hot lovin' and tons of laughs.

Fang Kattalakis isn't just a wolf. He is the brother of two of the most powerful members of the Omegrion: the ruling council that enforces the laws of the Were-Hunters. And when war erupts among the lycanthropes, sides must be chosen. Enemies are forced into shaky alliances. And when the woman Fang loves is accused of betraying her people, her only hope is that Fang believes in her. Yet in order to save her, Fang must break the law of his people and the faith of his brothers. That breech could very well spell the end of both their races and change their world forever.

The war is on and time is running out...

Dark Hunters...were hunters...need I say more? LOL.

What books are you looking forward to reading? Any recommendations for me?

Kell, great choices. I love Toni Blake and of course Erin McCarthy as well. I have no ideas, but my goal is just to get a book in my hands and finish it this summer. I have a LARGE pile waiting TBR.

Cant' wait for Bad Moon Rising. I was just thinking the other day about how much I'd like to read some more were-hunters. I loved Night Play (Vane and Bride's story) and I wanted more of that.

Guessing this one is hardback?

Anne Rainey said...

Oooh! I can't wait for that Kenyon book! I didn't realize she was doing the were hunters now. Cool!

I've been soaking up the Psy-changeling books by Singh. I'm on the last and most recent one now, Hostage to Pleasure (Dorian's book). I'm really excited about the next book, Branded by Fire, whichis Dev's book. But, the book I think we're ALL waiting for is Hawke's book. He's so hot!

Regina Carlysle said...

I bought a Nalini Singh book and found (one of the psy books) and realized it was in the middle of the series. Damn. Hate when that happens. LOL. Guess I'll have to buy the rest.

Just finished Acheron. Yeah, I know, took me awhile to get to it. Hmmm. Very violent and sadistic. Anyway, I can't wait for more were hunters. Soooo hot.

Just started Feehan's new shifter book but uncertain at this point whether I'll finish it or not. Very violent and I don't handle that well. Especially violence against children.

Kelley Nyrae said...

Hugs, Tonya. I hope you're able to get some much needed R&R with a good book.

Reg, I'm pretty sure it will be hardback which is a bummer. I hate hardback books.

Kelley Nyrae said...

Anne, I've been wanting to try those books but haven't gotten around to it yet.

Reg, did you like Ash? It broke my heart but I enjoyed it.

Anne Rainey said...

Regina--I loved Feehan's newest in the Leopard series. There is violence towards kids, but thos pricks get what they deserve in the end!

Kelley--Singh's Psy-changeling series is very different. She has a unique writing style. There aren't tons of sex scenes either, but the sexual tension btwn the h/h is spot on. She has a way of making you feel as if there's more steam throughout the story than what there really is.

Reading? What is this reading thing you speak of?? LOL!!

Actually I have a huge TBR pile to dive into during my recovery.

I LOVED Jo Davis' first book in the firefighter's series. I definitely have to pick up the new one!
