Skios - Michael Frayn
Skios - Michael Frayn

  

Wow! I can't think when I last read a farce, let alone enjoyed one. Probably it was Noises Off. It's difficult to maintain the suspension of disbelief in a text; in a play or film the pace of the action doesn't give one time to consider just how silly, how contrived, how unnatural the whole exercise is. And because Frayn is very skilled, he keeps one from dwelling on how absurd it is, while never forgetting for an instant just how absurd it is.

I don't think I actually laughed out loud, but I loved every silly minute of it.

Weekend Surprise - City Boy, Southern Girl

 

 

 

 

 

 

City Boy, Southern Girl blurb 

 

Growing up in a small town, Sarah Wright knew city boy Jake Ryland was going to be trouble the minute she saw him.

 

In order to help a friend, Jake moved from his home in the city - with its vast amounts of entertainment options and women - to a small town in the middle of nowhere. Accustomed to the fast paced life he loved, life now seemed to move as slow as the molasses the South was known for. Until he met Sarah.

 

Sarah knew Jake’s stay in town was temporary, and did her best not to be drawn in by his charm and good looks. And after a disastrous first date, she thought she was safe. Little did she know...

 

As their relationship builds, so does their chemistry...and their feelings for one another. Do they try to find a way to make it work, even though they come from different worlds? Or do they walk away now and wonder what might have been?

AUTHOR BIO:

 

There's just something about a small town that makes relationships interesting, whether they are romances, long-running feuds, or life-long friendships. These are the relationships H.C. Bentley enjoys discovering and exploring. Well that, and the fact she just loves a good happily ever after or second chance story.

When she's not writing, H.C. works as a cataloging librarian at her county library. In her spare time, you can find her playing pool, traveling with her family, or curled up watching movies (romantic comedies are a favorite!). She's also an avid reader, leaning towards various authors of romance and chick lit, but her favorite is Nora Roberts.

A southern girl at heart, H.C. calls Kentucky her home. After opting to join the military to pay for college, she spent three years stationed in Wiesbaden, Germany before returning to her hometown in rural western Kentucky, where she and her husband live with their two daughters.

H.C. loves chatting with readers. You can contact her through her website, or any of her social media.

Renewal
Hard Stick: A Breakaway Novel - L.P. Dover

Kristen has a sudden life changing incident occur.  She ends up living in another location with a new name.  She has had so much upheaval lately that nothing feels right.  Not until she meets someone who makes her feel safe and whole again.

 

Kellan has wanted Kristen to give him the time of day for some time.  He wants to show her he is no longer the type of guy she thinks he is.  He wants someone forever, not just a one night stand.

 

This story is sweet and sexy.  I found myself eagerly turning the pages!  I loved how charming and protective the leading man is.  The hot men that are in this series make me eager for the next installment to come.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Changing
Grand Slam (The Boys of Summer) - Heidi McLaughlin

This book is #3, in The Boys Of Summer series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading series in order.

 

Travis is already taken.  It's just that the woman he wants does not know it yet.  She won't let him close.  The past for her, is a painful place that may come back to haunt them in the present.

 

Saylor wants Travis.  All the time.  She has to work with him.  Her feelings can be a dangerous thing.  How do you build a future if you are chained to the past?

 

This series is really building momentum!  I found these characters to be very easy to read.  The banter was good and helped build the heat.  I hope to see more of this series!  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
