Dewey Readathon Reading List - Spring 2017
The New Neighbor: A Novel - Leah Stewart
A Vision of Lucy (A Rocky Creek Romance Book 3) - Margaret Brownley
Deep Deception - Cathy Pegau
Forbidden - Beverly Jenkins

My TBR for the read-a-thon is very eclectic.

 

1. The New Neighbor by Leah Stewart (Pop Sugar challenge - book with eccentric character) (Library Love challenge)

           A story about a nosy elderly lady who investigates her new neighbor and tries to uncover the neighbor's secrets. Literary fiction that I really hope doesn't suck due to having a mystery plotline.

 

2. Deep Deception by Cathy Pegau (Booklikes-opoly)

           F/F romance set in space. New-to-me author, although I follow her on Twitter because she makes life in Alaska look like fun.

 

3. Forbidden (Old West #1) by Beverly Jenkins (Booklikes-opoly)

          New-to-me author, and I wanted to tackle one of her latest books to see if I like her writing style before diving into her backlist.

 

4. A Vision of Lucy (Rocky Creek #3) by Margaret Brownley

        Not in a hurry to read this book. The beginning of the book was silly, with too much damsel in distress action that made me roll my eyes. A good laundry day type of book.

Review: My Writing Professor and My Friend the Bride by Nicolette Dane
My Friend The Bride: A Lesbian Romance - Nicolette Dane
My Writing Professor: A Lesbian Romance - Nicolette Dane

Romance Bingo square - Wedding Bells

Romance Bingo square - New Adult

 

I decided to make a two-in-one review posts as these books were only 50 pages each.

 

My Writing Professor - 1 star

This felt like a teaser excerpt for a longer novel, but unfortunately, it is a stand alone novella. There are major gaps in the story, such as the narrator's (yep, first person POV) entire back story/characterization. The only thing the reader knows about the narrator is that is in her early twenties, is in a MFA for writing program in Chicago, has no job/has no need for a job, and is a student of the title character. The writing professor character has a little more back story, but nothing deep enough to connect the reader to the character. There is a lot of sex and a lot of mental analyzing what all this sex means to their relationship. In the end, the student follows the professor to New York City (even though the student mentions how rural life is more her preferred environment) and leaves the writing program and Chicago without a thought as what she will do in NYC, other than have sex with her girlfriend. Honestly, there was no deep feelings or thinking by anyone in this story and no point in reading this.  

 

My Friend the Bride - 1 star

Again, first person narrator without much characterization to separate herself from a mannequin. The bride is the narrator's secret ex-lover and present day best friend. Narrator is the maid of honor, and thus in charge of helping bride plan her big day while fantasizing about being lovers again. The opportunity to bump uglies one more time during a weekend bachelorette party. The bride comes from a religiously conservative political family and is marrying a guy from another equally religious, conservative, political family. I really felt that the groom got a raw deal in this story. The narrator does everything to convince the bride to call off the wedding, come out of the closet, and get into a serious relationship with her. The bride wants her cake (big, expensive wedding and honeymoon bought and paid for by her family) and eat it too (secret intimate relationship with narrator) - so the basis of this relationship at the end of the story is that the bride is cheating on her new husband. The narrator seems to be content with being a side dish and complicit in her girlfriend's cheating. There is a lot of sex and no relationship building, so there is no reason for the reader to root for the girlfriends' relationship over the bride's and groom's relationship

Cassie Slazak has been living a lie for a decade.

 

As the secret lover of Bianca Durand, the daughter of Massachusetts’ newly elected governor, Cassie wants Bianca to tell the world about their long term affair. But when Bianca gets engaged to a respected lawyer, who’s admired by both of Bianca’s parents, Cassie’s dreams are crushed. She not only rejected her high school sweetheart, and her small town life she adored, but her Catholic faith for a woman who has controlled her for too long.

 

When Cassie’s grandmother has fallen gravely ill, she returns to Delpoint, Pennsylvania to pay her last respects to the woman who raised her. Not only will she confront her past, but Freddie Koeman, the woman Cassie once betrayed for a possible future with Bianca. To her surprise, Freddie has forgiven Cassie, but Cassie’s guilt keeps Freddie at a distance.

 

Bianca refuses to let Cassie leave her, using threats and emotional blackmail to keep Cassie under her thumb. But Cassie is finished with Bianca’s deceit, turning to her family and God to give her the strength to move on, and perhaps find salvation in Freddie’s arms, who is more than willing to share all her love.

 

Exclusive Excerpt:

A loud beeping woke me up. I tried opening my eyes, but I was as comfortable, as one could be on a couch, half lying on someone. I was covered in a blanket, my entire body cocooned in its warmth, and my arms and legs twined with another’s—Freddie’s.

 

As awareness took over, I blinked away the sleep and drew the blanket down from my head. Freddie still slept, her mouth open, snoring softly. There was a milk stain in a corner of her lips from the ice cream we’d shared. We’d sat on the couch, eating bowls of ice cream, and talked late into the night. I fell asleep on her in the literal sense.

 

The intrusive beeping, followed by a squeal of tires and voices outside the window broke the silence. Freddie groaned and lifted her arm over her head, a loud yawn escaping her mouth.

 

I giggled and grabbed the top of the sofa to move off the sleeping beauty. But her hand on my back pressed down. She opened her eyes and studied me with a drowsy stare.

 

Hey, you.” Her hand slipped up to play with the back of my head.

 

I lowered my gaze, inspecting the middle of her throat and the lovely indentation that nudged me to kiss or lick. I also wouldn’t have minded licking away the leftover chocolate on her lips.

 

What time is it?” I blocked a yawn with the side of my hand so I didn’t blast her with my stale chocolate breath.

 

“Around seven-thirty based on the garbage truck I heard.” She swiped her finger down the bridge of my nose, leaving a pleasant prickling behind.

 

“Don’t you have to open the café?” I rested my cheek on the sofa cushion.

 

“Glory opens the café on Mondays. I’m not due until noon. We have the whole morning to ourselves.” The drowsy look in her eyes vanished and a warm look aimed at me appeared.

 

“I should call Aunt Lorraine and tell her I’m here. I forgot to last night. She must be worried.” Suddenly shy, I moved to sit up.

 

“Hmm.…” She stretched her arms over her head, and the middle of her throat I had become obsessed with mocked me.

 

“I can’t help it,” I whispered. When she said my name and clutched my shoulders, I shifted over to set my lips on that section of skin I’d wanted to taste ever since I woke up.

 

She arched back and lowered her right leg to the floor, allowing me to sink into her soft body. When she said my name again, I flicked the tip of my tongue along the top of her chest uncovered by her shirt. Her fingers tightened in my hair.

 

“I want you to kiss me,” she commanded.

 

“That’s what I’m doing,” I teased and licked further.

 

She brought my mouth to hers, sealing our lips in a tight suction. I sighed, and her tongue slipped inside my mouth to play with mine. Our chocolate breaths mingled, and we swallowed our moans while we kissed hello, becoming reacquainted again. Her arms came around my head in a protective clasp. I returned the favor by capturing her face in my palms and rocking forward, enjoying her gasp of pleasure.

 

With our mouths still fused together, Freddie turned on her side, taking my leg and wrapping it around her hip. I murmured some type of approval, encouragement, hoping she would take the lead so I wouldn’t have to.
