Meet A Rogue At Midnight
Meet A Rogue At Midnight (Midnight Meetings Book 4) - Gina Conkle

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts...

Meet A Rogue at Midnight by Gina Conkle is book 2.5 of her historical romance series Midnight Meetings. Even though the books have been published with quite a bit of gaps in between, I enjoyed this series so far. A new installment was a long time coming and so glad I finally got to read it!

Midnight Meetings is rather themed on the popular fairytales. Book 1, Meet the Earl at Midnight, was about a reclusive Earl whose face became somewhat disfigured from an accident. A nerd by heart, Edward wasn’t meant to be the heir but fate led him to become the Earl of Greenwich when his elder brother died suddenly. Our h, Lydia was ‘given’ to him in exchange of a debt of her slimy step-father. One night from her comfy bed, Lydia finds herself doing something she wasn’t even dreaming of; in a MOC with a stranger. An Earl no less! Edward, who was leaving for a scientific voyage very soon, needed to marry ASAP to ensure an heir for his legacy and this was his hasty solution. Not that he didn’t like Lydia, oh no! He was smitten from day one, though he was never good at showing his feelings. So, after a bit of push and pull and some misunderstandings, Edward and Lydia find their HEA. Though I found the middle of the story a bit slow because of the above mentioned push and pull, I loved how it all came together in the end.

Review: Check These Out by Gina Sheridan
Check These Out: One Librarian's Catalog of the 200 Coolest, Best, and Most Important Books You'll Ever Read - Gina Sheridan

Pretty much a book about books; each book recommended had it's own page along with a description of the book and which patron to recommend the book to. I picked this up at the library because I decided that starting in 2018, I will be working on my masters degree in library and informational sciences (right now I am just deciding on where to apply and what requirements I need to meet). So I figured a book by a librarian who surveyed other librarians about what they recommend to their patrons can come in handy.

 

And yes, it is handy, but most of the books aren't to my taste. However, I have to give credit to the author for the balance in diversity in the books she chose to highlight in this book - whether from authors of color, to authors from the LGBT* community, books about mental illness, disability, social issues are all there alongside more well-known authors/books. The author also chose to devote a chapter to audiobooks and another to graphic novels, so she wasn't snobby about format. There is also a chapter on YA novels, with the caveat that these YA novels would be good fits for adult readers who enjoy YA, so she wasn't snobby about patrons' reading tastes either. The book did lean more to fiction than non-fiction, but some recent non-fiction reads were recommend for the writing styles were as engaging as some fiction reads.

 

There were books from the cannon of English Lit (Shakespeare) and modern classics (O. Henry), but also some works dating post WWII all the way through to the early 2010s. Alas, no genre specific chapters were written, so no romance, mystery, sci-fi books were recommended - the author stayed pretty firm in mainstream fiction/literary fiction section of the library. Still I made a list of the books she recommends and that seemed interesting to me (there were a few that I have already read) so I could add them to my TBR pile.

Rapid Pulse Collection
Rapid Pulse: A Limited Edition Spicy Romance Collection - Gina Kincade,Kiki Howell,Angelica Dawson,Erzabet Bishop,Muffy Wilson,Kathleen Grieve,Julie Morgan,Elle Berlin,Elianne Adams,Monica Corwin,Elvira Bathory,Lexi Thorne,Cate Farren,Author Quinn,M.M. Chabot,Lexi Ostrow,Tamsin Baker,Abyrne Mostyn,Magen McMini

Rapid Pulse Collection is a collection of books about hot Alpha Males. Box sets are a favorite of mine because once in awhile you like a quick read to get you through the day or night. Even when you are having to wait it gives you a mental vacation from the time. In addition it set you up to learn about different authors. So for me I just loved this box set and working through trying to read them all.
"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

Good Read!
Lazer Focused: A Jet City Billionaire Ro... Lazer Focused: A Jet City Billionaire Romance (The Billionaire Matchmaker Series Book 1) - Gina Robinson

Lazer Focused by Gina Robinson is a fun read.  This is a fairly short read, perfect for those with limited time for reading.  This is a well-written book.  Lazer and Ashley's story is full of great characters, drama, humor and sexy bits.  I enjoyed reading Lazer Focused and look forward to reading more from Gina Robinson in the future.  Lazer Focused is book 1 of the Billionaire Matchmaker Series but it can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
