✓ Into the Storm - Suzanne Brockmann ★★★★☆ 1/2
✓ Slices of Life - Alex Kava & others ★★★☆☆ 1/2

2,3,4:
✓ A Kiss to Remember - Teresa Medeiros ★★★★☆
✓ Blood Games - Chloe Neill ★★★★☆
Did You Miss Me? - Karen Rose
✓ Brown-Eyed Girl - Lisa Kleypas ★★★★☆
✓ The Beast - J.R. Ward ★★★★☆ 1/2
Wild Man - Kristen Ashley

Robin (robinmy) | 2126 comments Late last night I finished A Kiss to Remember (Once Upon a Time, #3) by Teresa Medeiros A Kiss to Remember by Teresa Medeiros. It's a humorous "amnesia" romance.

Love your list this month! Enjoy The Beast and it's a long one.

I also wish I was keeping up with you in Will Trent.

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 1630 comments Happy reading, Robin! Your list reminds me that I need to get back to the Chloe Neill series. I need a book with a character with unusual colored hair for a challenge read and Mallory is usually good for that, lol.

I'm excited to read this book. I want to get caught up. I just received The Kept Woman in the mail a few nights ago. I wasn't sure why the publisher was sending me a copy until I realized that I had signed up for a drawing a couple of weeks ago. I guess I won.

I have to try to find a block of time to read The Beast. I don't like reading it on work nights because I want to stay up reading.

Are you listening or reading Blood Games, Robin?


message 17: by Robin (new)

Robin (robinmy) | 2126 comments I'm reading Blood Games. I haven't tried any of the audios. Do you know if the narrator is good?


message 18: by Jonetta (new)

Jonetta (ejaygirl) | 10429 comments Mod
Love the new narrator, Sophie Eastlake for the Chicagoland Vampires series! They switched from Cynthia Holloway (thought she was awful) around book #5. You'll enjoy her, Robin.

Lauren (laurenjberman) | 4017 comments Mod
I second Jonetta's comments. Excellent from book 5 onwards.

Was hoping you'd weigh in, Lauren.


message 21: by Robin (new)

Robin (robinmy) | 2126 comments I may have to give the audios a try.


message 22: by Robin (new)

Robin (robinmy) | 2126 comments I've been reading some good books lately....

I finished Blood Games (Chicagoland Vampires, #10) by Chloe Neill Blood Games by Chloe Neill. Another solid book in the adventures of Merit & Ethan.

Then I read The Beast (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #14) by J.R. Ward The Beast by J.R. Ward. I'm glad I had a long weekend to read this one. I wouldn't have got much sleep if it was a work night.

My rating: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

Today I read Brown-Eyed Girl (Travis Family, #4) by Lisa Kleypas Brown-Eyed Girl by Lisa Kleypas. Another winner by one of my favorite authors.

Robin (robinmy) | 2126 comments I was away on vacation and didn't get a lot of reading time the last two weeks. I did end up finishing two books:

First I read Into the Storm (Troubleshooters, #10) by Suzanne Brockmann Into the Storm by Suzanne Brockmann. Loved it.

Next I read Lost Light (Harry Bosch, #9; Harry Bosch Universe, #10) by Michael Connelly Lost Light by Michael Connelly. This was another good mystery from Michael Connelly.
