Addicted to Love (Flatiron Five Book 2) - Deborah Cooke

I almost didn’t read this one. Didn’t particularly like book one, Simply Irrisitable, so I wasn’t in a rush to try more. Man am I glad I went back and tried it. Loved every second of it. It has the kind of character development rarely seen in romance novels. Everything happens within a few days, maybe a week or two, but this one started twelve years ago when they first met, then flash-forward to present day and he is her brother’s best friend, their past is a secret, she is married and he is the bearer of bad news. From that moment on it is a slow burn and a strong build up to a great relationship. It spans months and Cooke does it seamlessly with no dull parts. It was great. I loved the slow build. I loved that Kyle had to work for it and that Lauren refused to settle. The progression of the book was great and the conflicts were strong. I loved how Lauren set her cheating ex-husband straight in front of a group of strangers, and I love how Kyle grew from a man who wanted nothing but one night stands, to one who wanted forever and how he grew as a character. There isn't anything I didn’t like about this book.

#73 - Addicted To You by Krista Ritchie and Becca Ritchie
Addicted to You - Krista Ritchie,Becca Ritchie

This book was sitting on my Kindle, once again, I don't remember how I got it but I wanted to read some contemporary. I needed a light read to take my mind off things.. It was definitely not a light read, but it was really great.

 

I liked how honest this book was. Our two main characters have an addiction, one to alcohol, the other one to sex. And it is not glamour at all. I was afraid it would glamorize sex addiction but it did not. It was really interesting to read about it.

 

I got really attached to the characters, something I think would not happen at first. But the more I read, the more I was anxious about what was happening and I really wanted the characters to be happy and get better.

 

It is one of those books that surprised me in many ways. I'm more used to read fantasy or sci-fi and I read contemporary/romance when I need a break. So it was a great surprise to enjoy it as much as I did. I am really glad I decided to pick this up. I definitely recommend it.

16 Festive Tasks: Square 1
Addicted to You - Krista Ritchie,Becca Ritchie

 

 

For All Saints Day / Día de los Muertos / Calan Gaeaf, I decided to read a book where one of the character was named "Rose", which is the reading task for Calan Gaeaf. I actually had never heard of this holiday before and I'm so glad I did because it so interesting!

 

 

I read Addicted To you, which was surprisingly really good (I wanted some easy contemporary to relax, but it was actually quite a heavy book.). One of the MC's sisters is called Rose, which fitted perfectly this task so, Square 1 completed!

 

I will defenitely look at the other tasks and try to plan some things, for this one, it was actually a coincidence, I was not a lot on the internet last week because of work, but I will defenitely plan ahead now (and I'm so read for this!!) Thank you for creating this amazing game again, I can't wait to see what everyone will be reading :)

 

Thanks for reading,

 

Line.

Sunday Soup (?) ... but on a Monday

... because I forgot to post this yesterday. The benefit of posting the Sunday Soup post today, of course, is that I came home to find that I had received some books that I had ordered. Yay.

 

Anyway, we were supposed to get the remnants of hurricane Ophelia today. While it was very wet and incredibly dark all day (it was pitch black at around 2:30pm!), there was no wind. Thank goodness! I mean, it was unlikely that the predicted winds would hit this part any harder than the regular stiff breeze we get, but still... Unfortunately, it appears Ireland has seen some storm damage.

 

This whole topic of tropical storms and all gave me an appetite for chili yesterday. That is, veggie chili in my case, which for some reason I wanted to have in soft tortilla shells, and which made enough to have left over chili tonight (because it tastes even better on the second day).

 

 

In case you were wondering about the lack of cheese, there is some mozzarella at the bottom. 

 

The Muriel Spark book, which you can't really see, is Spark's Satire, which contains three novellas: RobinsonThe Abbess of Crewe, and Aiding and Abetting

 

Hope your Monday was not too bad either. ;D

Addiction, danger, patience, and faith pulled me in
Addicted to the Duke: An Imperfect Lords Novel - Bronwen Evans

A terrible past haunts Alex and he must face his demons when he rescues Hestia. She knows her heart belongs to Alex, but it takes a lot of faith, patience, and strength to help him find his way to his own heart. Alex is a very tortured soul, physically and emotionally, and I wanted to help him see the light. Hestia is young and honest, but learns and accepts the bad in the world, and I applauded her strength. I highly recommend this story and give a mild warning about the dark aspects of this story. It kept me reading whenever I could. I enjoy Ms. Evans stories, and look forward to more in this series.

I received a copy of this story through Netgalley, and this is my unsolicited review.
