Reading progress update: I've read 332 out of 752 pages.
Moby-Dick (Barnes & Noble Classics Series) - Herman Melville

From an entire chapter dedicated to the type of rope used for whaling:

 

[...] but previous to that connection, the short-warp goes through sundry mystifications too tedious to detail.

 

YOU GUYS. Melville finding something too tedious to detail is like THE ULTIMATE BURN. Imagine being so tedious NOT EVEN MELVILLE CAN BE BOTHERED DESCRIBING YOU.

Not a true first in series
Mayhem's Warrior: Operation Mayhem - Lindsay Cross

I was confused for a lot of this, it felt like chunks of story were missing. Reading other reviews it seems like a novella and the Men of Mercy series should be read before this, as characters and instances pertaining to this story are covered.

 

Sweet innocent heroine who's blood can act like a cure all serum (????) for the hero and his team's altered DNA issues. Hero and heroine fell in love fast and I'm not sure why. A lot of super soldier stories out there and this didn't really distance itself in any way from the pack, but again, I haven't read the previous books, so I was lost. 

 

I have a couple other books from this author as Kindle Freebies, the writing was technically good enough that I'll see if I can find the start to all of this and get the pertinent facts.

Reading progress update: I've read 32%.
Casimir Bridge (Anghazi Series) (Volume 1) - Darren Beyer

I was just getting to the point where I was wondering if I would continue with this -it's intrigue on an interplanetary scale, larded with big dollops of hard science but I wasn't connecting with it on a personal level - when the plot took a turn and characters got connected and now I have to know what happens next.

 

So, I'll keep on keeping on and hope that the big science meets some big personalities at some point.

Opposites attract…and ignite. On the ice, Justin Perry is always in control. As one of the Reading Redtails’ best defensemen, he plays with an intense focus and skates like he was born on blades. Off the ice, he’s content to keep his head down and his eyes on the prize: a spot on an NHL team. Except when Vivi Martin’s around. She’s bright, bold and beautiful and Justin can’t make himself look away.

 

Vivi can’t help but notice Justin’s interest and, yeah, she’s not immune to his awkward charm or his grin that steals her breath. But falling for another athlete who will only leave and break her heart is the last thing she needs. Been there, done that. No t-shirt required. She’s too busy working three part-time jobs to make ends meet while figuring out how to use her passion for photography to build a career.

 

Until Vivi gets a peek at what’s underneath Justin’s boy-scout exterior and discovers a tattooed hunk who rocks her world with a kiss. She’d be a fool to pass up a chance to get him in her bed....and in front of her camera. And Vivi’s no fool. But when a career-focused hockey player pursues a free spirit who’s built a fortress of ice around her bruised heart, Justin’s going to have to step up and take his best shot to break through Vivi’s walls...and hope it doesn’t shatter them both.

The D-Man: Redtails Hockey 6The D-Man: Redtails Hockey 6 by Stephanie Julian
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #6, in the Redtails Hockey series. This story can be read as a standalone novel. For read understanding and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

Justin is getting ribbed by his friends about watching Vivi when she is near. It is true he is interested. When you are tongue tied, when do you make your move?

Vivi does not usually go out with good guys. Commitment gives her hives. Justin is so different from what she is used to. He treats her like a man should treat a woman.

This was such a great addition to the series. Steamy and sweet, this book just grabbed at my heart strings and I could not put it down. The main characters were very real to me. Their story weaved and fell into place. I really liked this book it was a joy to read.
