Waiting On Wednesday: Me, Him, Them and It by Caela Carter

“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights an upcoming release we are greatly anticipating.

This week’s selection is:

Book: Me, Him, Them and It

Author: Caela Carter

Release Date: February 5th 2013

Goodreads |Amazon | B&N

Book Description:

When Evelyn decided to piss off her parents with a bad reputation, she wasn’t planning to ruin her valedictorian status. She also wasn’t planning to fall for Todd-the guy she was just using for sex. And she definitely wasn’t planning on getting pregnant. When Todd turns his back on her, Evelyn’s not sure where to go. Can a distant mother, a cheating father, an angry best friend, and a (thankfully) loving aunt with adopted daughters of her own help Evelyn make the heart-wrenching decisions that follow?

Why I’m waiting:

As I read this books description again, I can’t think why I was so in love with it when I found it! lol But I was, and maybe it is too early for my brain to start working again, but it seems like it’s going to be a great book, an emotional rollercoaster! 😉

So, what are you waiting on?  Leave a comment with your WoW link below and I’ll make sure to check it out!

Oh, and HAPPY HALLOWEEN, everyone! 😉

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted on Mondays by Sheila from Book Journey. It features the books you read last week, books currently reading, and books you plan on finishing this week.

What I read this past week:

Dies Irae (Requiem 0.5)
By Christine Fonseca
 

I started reading Dies Irae in my preparation for the second Requiem book by Christine Fonseca that’s released tomorrow, but I fell behind because I couldn’t read the first one. Not that I won’t read it. School is no help at all right now, so I have to be careful on my neglecting. 😉

Anyway. Dies Irae was really good. It’s short, about eighty-three pages, but it’s a novella after all, right? And I think it just sets the right pace and intrigue to get you on edge to read the next book.

Don’t forget it’s a freebie on Amazon! 😉 Continue reading

[ARC] Review: The Proposition by Katie Ashley

Book: The Proposition

Author: Katie Ashley

Expected Publication: November 1st, 2012

My Rating: 4/5

Goodreads | Amazon | B&N

Book Description:

With her thirtieth birthday looming, Emma Harrison finds her biological clock clanging and the elusive knight in shining armor yet to appear. She’s running out of options, especially after her gay best friend backs out from being her sperm donor. Of course, there’s always a sperm bank, but Emma fears a donor mix-up might impregnate her with the spawn of Satan.

Resident company womanizer, Aidan Fitzgerald, is used to always getting what he wants, especially in the bedroom. When Emma spurns his advances at the company Christmas party, he’s determined to have her no matter what it takes. After Aidan learns of Emma’s predicament, he is quick to offer a proposition that will benefit them both. He will father Emma’s child, but she must conceive it with him naturally. Not one for hook-ups or casual sex, Emma is reluctant to take him up on his offer, but his charm, coupled with her intense desire for motherhood, wins out.

Soon their baby-making sessions become more than just physical. Aidan can’t seem to walk away from her while Emma begins to wonder if Aidan could be the one. But can Aidan leave his past behind to become the man Emma needs him to be?

My Review:

Holy mother!

If you asked me what I thought of The Proposition, that’s what I would say. Okay, no. Maybe I would say something way stronger, but on the off-chance that there are kids reading this I won’t say it. And by the way, if you’re a kid, don’t read this.

Where shall I begin?

Review: One Night with a Hero (The Hero #2) by Laura Kaye

Book: One Night with a Hero (The   Hero #2) –  [Book #1 review]

Author: Laura Kaye

Published: October 2012

My Rating: 4/5

Goodreads | Amazon | B&N

Book Description:

He wants just one night…

After growing up with an abusive, alcoholic father, Army Special Forces Sgt. Brady Scott vowed never to marry or have kids. Sent stateside to get his head on straight—and his anger in check—Brady’s looking for a distraction. He finds it in his beautiful new neighbor’s one-night-only offer for hot sex, but her ability to make him forget is addictive. Suddenly, Brady’s not so sure he can stay away.

…what they need is each other.

Orphaned as a child, community center director Joss Daniels swore she’d never put herself in a position to be left behind again, but she can’t deny herself one sizzling night with the sexy soldier who makes her laugh and kisses her senseless. When Joss discovers she’s pregnant, Brady’s rejection leaves her feeling abandoned. Now, they must overcome their fears before they lose the love and security they’ve found in each other, but can they let go of the past to create a future together?

My Review:

One Night With a Hero was, damn, so good! Sexy, sweet, heartbreaking, endearing and all kinds of amazing (hello to hot cover!).

I loved the colors in this cover, the blue the pink, they are just so bright! Plus the shadow-y details all over the place that makes you think just what this book might bring.

Review: Her Forbidden Hero (The Hero #1) by Laura Kaye

Book: Her Forbidden Hero (The   Hero #1) – [Book #2 Review]

Author: Laura Kaye

Published: May 2012

My Rating: 5/5

Goodreads | Amazon | B&N

Book Description:

She’s always been off-limits…

Former Army Special Forces Sgt. Marco Vieri has never thought of Alyssa Scott as more than his best friend’s little sister, but her return home changes that…and challenges him to keep his war-borne demons at bay. Marco’s not the same person he was back when he protected Alyssa from her abusive father, and he’s not about to let her see the mess he’s become.

…but now she’s all grown up.

When Alyssa takes a job at the bar where Marco works, her carefree smiles wreak havoc on his resolve to bury his feelings. How can he protect her when he can’t stop thinking about her in his bed? But Alyssa’s not looking for protection—not anymore. Now that she’s back in his life, she’s determined to heal her forbidden hero, one touch at a time…

My Review:

Oh my! Oh my! I’m still pretty giddy over Her Forbidden Hero. It was sooo good! Like Marco. Um… I guess I better get started with this review, no?

As my fashion goes I started this book last night, right about midnight. For some reason the books I choose to start late at night always end up keeping me up way more than I can actually afford to stay up… school night and all that. Who cares? I don’t regret it, at all. How could I really, after Marco this amazing book? Continue reading
