#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.

Book Review For: Addicted to the Duke by Bronwen Evans
Addicted to the Duke: An Imperfect Lords Novel - Bronwen Evans
Addicted to the Duke (Imperfect Lords, #1)Addicted to the Duke by Bronwen Evans
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

'Addicted to the Duke" by Bronwen Evans is the First book in the New Series "Imperfect Lords". This is the story of Alexander Sylvester Bracken, Duke of Bedford and Lady Hestia Cary.
Hestia was kidnapped with she was 16 years of age and was going to be raped and taking as a slave if not for Alex. The man that was going to hurt Hestia was once his captor..the man got Alex hooded on drugs and went along with allot of what that man used to do as his slave. But no more and he is now there to save Hestia. About 4 years later we find Alex is now the Duke of Bedford and tries to avoid Hestia. Alex knows that Hestia has feelings for him but feels she is to good for him. So he has been pulling away from her until he is called to her house. There he learns her father is possibly dead and that Hestia and her Aunt want his help finding her father. Hestia explains that her father's heir is saying that her father is dead and he is now taking over. In addition with her father's death she inherits money from her mother's estate. Which has put her in danger of being forced to marry or killed. Alex has agreed to go look for her father and she is planning to go with him.
It was hard for me to put this book down. I wanted to see how their story would play out.
This was another great story by Ms. Evans.
"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."
