A little Beach Reading.... by Dawn

A little Beach Reading....

So, I have been in this massive reading slump, this is not good for a blogger, nope not good at all! So what does one do when this happens? You take your sorry self to the beach!!! Well, I guess I should say "you take your family on a beach vacation!" Yes, I had to bring them along. 

I normally enjoy sitting in sand and sun. Well as I am approaching 42 (I am fine with this... I think.) I am no longer the sun worshiper I once was. Now my routine is, read a little on the beach and then sit out on the deck surrounding the beach house and listen to the waves reading.  

I have this massive TBR list that I have been trying to get to, with little luck. So, I was determined to knock some of those off the list this week. I am happy to report that YES, I did in fact read 5 books just for me. One was an ARC but it was short and really good! I started book #6 on the six hour drive home. 
Here are the books and the synopsis for each one. They all are AMAZING . All of them are 4.5 to 5 Clock reads for me. 

Determined to remove herself from the rules regulations of her overbearing religious parents, Avery escapes to college and is determined to make it on her own. Working as a bartender, and mere weeks before her college graduation, she finds herself face to face with thirty members of an Outlaw Motorcycle Club

She had no idea when the President of the club walked in she’d go weak in the knees for the gorgeous tattooed biker. 

Axton (aka Slice) is the President of the Selected Sinners MC. At the onset of a huge gun deal with a notorious prison gang, he has no time or desire to have a woman in his life. Abused by his Hell’s Angel father as a child, and wronged by every woman in his past, Axton has one devotion - the MC. 

After finding out he needs Avery’s Criminal Justice education and her linguistic skills to assist in making the gun deal a success, Axton reluctantly approaches her to act as his interpreter. 

Hoping to win Axton over, Avery attempts to turn off her smart mouth, turn on her charm, and become his woman of interest; even if it means sacrificing a level of independence she’s grown accustomed to. 

But when the gun deal goes to hell in an hand basket, both Avery and Axton are left wondering what their next move may be.

All sexual partners in this MC Erotic Romance are over the age of 18. Stand alone love story.HEA. No cliff hanger. Making the Cut is Book III in a series of stand alone Erotic Romance MC novels.

I was ordinary. Nice. 

He was extraordinary. And he wasn’t always nice. 

Moody and difficult, brilliant and beautiful, Kes scared me and he protected me. He could be incredibly hurtful and incredibly thoughtful. He wasn’t perfect, but he was perfect for me. He challenged me, he took me out of my safe little box and showed me the world could be magnificent. He was everything I wasn’t."

Aimee Anderson is ten when the traveling carnival first comes to her nice little town. She doesn’t expect her world to change so completely. But meeting Kestrel Donohue puts her life on a different path. 

Even though she only sees him for the two weeks of the year when he passes through her home town, his friendship is the most important of her life. As a child’s friendship grows to adult love, the choices become harder, and both Kes and Aimee realize that two weeks a year will never be enough...

How many times do you gamble on love? When love has knocked you down, should you give it another chance? When does optimism become stupidity? 

And what happens when the man you’re in love with is never still, always moving, always traveling? Do you say goodbye, or do you leave behind everything that you’ve worked for, everything that you’ve ever known? Can a traveling carnival be my home? 

Oh. You thought I had the answers. No, sorry. No answers, just a lot of questions—and a heart that wants to rule my head. 

Can one person be my home? 
(Jane Harvey Berrick, Me and
Tyler Gattuso) 

And like going home to an old friend.... I have read this book countless times and I will reread it many more ...

And the book I started on my "Beach Vacation is OVER" drive home 
 Sexy Love by Author Dani Lovell

Alexia Berkeley is a strong, powerful and independent woman who doesn’t need a man for anything. Well – other than a little light relief here and there, of course. 

Sebastian Love has always flirted with her but other than the fine, professional businessman he manages to be when necessary, she knows what he’s like socially; a perverse, lecherous rouĂ© with nothing on his mind but female genitalia. Nothing could be further from her ‘type’, than him. 

Could Alexia Berkeley have gotten Sebastian Love all wrong? She definitely seems to think so after a drink or two whilst letting her hair down with the girls, and his delicious, tattoo covered body certainly takes her into a new realm of naughtiness and desire. Will she abandon her rigid beliefs of decorum and correctness for a lasciviously thrilling lifestyle or will her life-long morals overrule?
