Hot & Bothered
Irresistible You (The Chicago Rebels Series Book 1) - Kate Meader

The Chicago Rebels series continues with the story about Remy and Harper.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  To avoid spoilers, and for full understanding of the series, I recommend reading this hot series in order.

 

Harper has had many emotional blows in a row.  Trying to be a good team owner, she makes the decisions based solely on what the team needs.  Always sacrificing her own needs to keep the team solid.

 

Remy had thought he would finish his career on a winning team.  Never thinking he would be traded at the eleventh hour.  Also not sure what to do about his feelings for his new boss.  They do not even get along most of the time.

 

Such a great addition to the series!  A very slow burn, and you know how I love those.  So many surprises in this story to enhance the read.  Hockey is always scrumptious to read about, and with a very hot couple who cannot stop touching each other - HOT!  I give this book a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Great way to learn about historical events
Drowned City: Hurricane Katrina and New Orleans - Don Brown

 

 

I read this book for my graphic novel class and for a free read Friday. It is very well done. I learned a lot about the aftermath of Hurrican Katrina in New Orleans, details I wasn't aware of before. Don Brown does a great job of presenting facts without a lot of bias. He uses facts and quotes to present the information. The illustrations are sepia toned and provide emotional details not given in the text. The faces are very expressive and even the way Brown draws the bodies shows how devastating the events were for the people of New Orleans.

 

Free Friday Read

96 pages = $2.00

My 3rd Free Read Friday - BLopoly
Drowned City: Hurricane Katrina and New Orleans - Don Brown

 

I'm reading this book as my third Free Read Friday. It was assigned for my graphic novel class. I started reading it today, so it qualifies for both.

 

It's a graphic novel about the effects of Hurricane Katrina.

A Place of Execution by Val McDermid
A Place of Execution - Val McDermid

This book explores the investigation of the disappearance of a thirteen year old girl in the 1960s from a tiny village (hamlet?) in England. It’s kind of hard to describe without getting into spoilers. It’s probably safe to say that someone does go to trial despite the fact that they never find her body and the mystery isn’t completely solved until many years later. I had wondered about the twist at the end despite not having figured out how it could happen so I didn’t find it all that surprising, but I still found the book to be an enjoyable read. I liked it a lot better than the other book that I read by Val McDermid which also had a crime committed in the past but had a lot more rehashing of the events in the present day.

 

I read this for booklikes-opoly square New Orleans 21 “Read a book set on an island or that has the ocean on the cover!” since it has been decided to accept England as an island. At 404 pages and following the new shake-up rules, this earns more another $10 for my bank, bringing the total to $150.

THE ROMEO CATCHERS BY: ALYS ARDEN
The Romeo Catchers (The Casquette Girls Series) - Alys Arden

<!-- x-tinymce/html -->

 

Reading an Alys Arden book is like taking a vacation. Her books make you feel like you're an actual part of the French Quarter. Completely immersive and her love of her city shines through each and every page. You end up feeling as if you are living and breathing the city right along with the characters. I absolutely adore that about these books!

 

 

bayou a drink

 

 

I loved watching the Coven come together and getting to know some new characters as well as getting more background stories from characters we already know and love. Getting to know Niccolo better was quite endearing. I don't know what Arden is trying to do to my heart, but I don't think I could possibly be any more conflicted between Niccolo and Isaac at this point! Seeing Adele and Isaac's relationship flourish in this book was so sweet. I can plainly see that they are pretty darn wonderful together. But even with Niccolo being out of sight, he was never out of mind, and seeing him as this young determined dreamer with so many hopes of a bright future tugged at each one of my heartstrings. I don't even know what I want at this point! I am DYING to see what happens in the next book.

 

 

which one

 

 

I was really excited to see more of the witch magic throughout the story. It was a lot of fun watching Adele, Isaac and Dee building up their coven and finding their place. I am very eager to see this group grow and flourish! I am completely intrigued by their individual growing powers as well! That ending was OUT OF CONTROL. You could tell that it was building to something huge towards the end, and it did not disappoint. I have no idea what will happen next in this story, but I can't wait to find out!

 

 

patience
