A little more nostalgia...
Taking you Home - Cooper Davis

Well this was an interesting experience. When I saw Cooper Davis's 'Boys of Summer' and 'Taking You Home' on audio I was just too tempted so I snapped them up and Brian Pallino was the narrator for both books and he did a solid job on both of these stories. I liked the voices he gave the MCs and the other characters were also well done...no the interesting part for me was the story itself.

 

It's been a few years since I've read either of these stories and while I can't honestly say that I enjoyed them quite as much this time around I found that with 'Taking You Home' I had a deeper appreciation for some of the things that happened and even though it's been less than 10 years since the book was written the difference in the world as it was back when Cooper Davis wrote this book and now is pretty significant. 

 

So once again maybe this one didn't resonate with me quite as strongly as the first time when I read the book...it was still a story worth revisiting.

The Austen Escape - Katherine Reay

Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race - Reni Eddo-Lodge
Perennials - Julie Cantrell

Moonlight Over Manhattan - Sarah Morgan
A Hope Divided (The Loyal League) - Alyssa Cole
Taking Back Philosophy: A Multicultural Manifesto - Bryan W. Van Norden,Jay L. Garfield
The Diamond Empire (A Diamonds Novel) - K'wan

I'm super excited for these reads. It's a good variety. I have very high expectations for A Hope Divided by Alyssa Cole. I will need to read the first book (I do have it) An Extraordinary Union. I read The Diamond Empire last month and loved it! I gave it 4 stars. K'wan knows how to draw you in and keep you there. Moonlight Over Manhattan will be my first read by Sarah Morgan. So many readers love her books. Since I'm familiar with the works of authors Jen Turano and Katherine Reay I know these will be awesome. Over the years I've seen the works of Barbara Taylor Bradford in bookstores and have been curious about her writing. Finally, I can see why she's so beloved. The big book of the month is Why I'm No Longer Talking To White People About Race. This book has been read widely and is being promoted everywhere. Overly hyped books scare me and I usually try to keep them for some time to not be influenced by frenzy.

Taking the Heat
Taking the Heat (Shadow Stalkers #2) - Sylvia Day
Brian is a US Marshall tasked with protecting a witness while transporting her across the country to testify. Layla is that witness. It turns out they have a history together. First loves, they broke-up (but of course haven't forgotten each other). Complicating matters, Layla is the target of an assassination attempt. 
Didn't care to much for this one. I had a harder time getting into the story. Don't get me wrong, the sexytimes were HOT, but it was just weird under the circumstances (someone has tried to kill you while on the way to testify in court, but who cares! Let's have sex!). Because I wasn't that into the story, moments like this one took me out more (not to mention gave me a case of the giggles): "She's found his prostate." and "...as her pussy spasmed in greedy delight." And let's not forgot this one: "...her womb spasming with need."
I did like the end and how they compromised to solve their issues.

Chemistry
Taking Control: Six Nights Of Sins (Book 2): A La Petite Morte Club Series - Ellis O. Day

This second book in the series heats up with Sarah and Nick's first night together, but Nick wants more than she's willing or able to give. Day is quite talented with showing the fiery chemistry between this pair, especially with a book this short. The story is erotic and it is very well done. This isn't steam just for the sake of steam - there's a story here and this second installment is just touching on the surface of it. The writing is compelling and draws the reader in, holding you there until the very last page, which leaves you wanting more. 

If you enjoy Erotic Romance, this is a must read.
