“Aren’t you cute?”

Tank licked her face and wagged his butt against Asher’s chest.

“He’s a boy,” Asher grumbled. “He’s not cute. Who was that?”

“Well excuse me.” […] “You’re handsome,” she said. To Tank.

“Takes after me,” Ashe said when Gloria kissed his head. Lucky dog. (12% eARC, Kindle)


That meant that six men on the beach wore one piece of clothing each – next whatever style shorts they’d chosen for the party.

“It’s like a blur of tattoos and flexing muscles,” Faith mumbled next to Gloria as they leaned on the railing upstairs. “Gosh, they’re pretty.” (65% eARC Kindle)

If you like cute puppies and a whole bunch of good looking men, this is probably a book for you! Haha. I just finished this and really enjoyed it. It was nice to see Gloria and Asher  finally get their HEA (:

I just reviewed book 3 of the series, A Bad Boy for Christmas!

“This isn’t funny.” Apparently Rhy had had the grace to pin the note to his door, in case anyone in the palace should worry.

Not kidnapped.
Out for a drink with Kell.
Sit tight. (16% Kindle)


Alucard made a nose of mock affront. “Obviously,” he said, brandishing the helmet, “I’m a dragon.”

“Wouldn’t it make more sense for you to be a fish?” challenged Lila. “After all, you do live on the sea, and you are rather slippery, and–”

“I’m a dragon,” he interjected. “You’re just not being very imaginative.” (61% Kindle)


“Our paths crossed one time. Months ago. It happens.”

“Oh yes, your relationship with Miss Bard is positively ordinary.”

“Be quiet.”

“Crossing worlds, killing royals, saving cities. The marks of every good courtship.” (63% Kindle)

Still reading this and totally loving it sooooo much! Definitely a fan of Rhy/Kell. And oooh I can’t wait for more Kell/Lila! And I’m really enjoying Alucard!

I think things are about to get (more) super awesome for the last half of the book!

  2. Ah… I discovered that I HAVE A Gathering of Shadows on my Kindle – I MUST get around to reading it, particularly as your quotes have convinced me it’s a book I’d love. My TT this week is about an adventurous sneak thief… https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/2016/04/12/teaser-tuesday-12th-april-2016/
