Making Up For Monday is hosted by An Avid Reader; A Wannabe Writer.
This week’s question: Do you read ahead or skip pages?
Typically, I focus on the physical assets of guys who make us feel all swoony, but you know me…I like to shake it up once in a while. With that in mind this week’s Man Candy Monday plays on what I like to call… the awww factor, cuz how sexy is it to see a guy who loves his furry baby? NO! Not THAT furry baby. Jeesh! 😉
”What book boyfriend is in your bed this morning?”
This Sunday I’m in bed with Matthew Fisher…
Welcome to Bookish News with Tamie and Elena. Let’s see what caught our eye this past week and what we’re looking forward to…
How do you lose everything?
Ask January Cooper.
She was the daughter of a Dallas multimillionaire, the debutante of the year, and the girl most likely to get whatever she wanted.
But when her father is arrested for securities fraud, the girl who had everything starts to lose everything. And once she starts falling, she can’t seem to stop.
When she walks into Christian Cutlass’s bar, she meets the first person who sees all the way through her. And Christian Cutlass meets the first girl who doesn’t care about who he used to be and what he lost one night when he was nineteen years old.
She’s gorgeous and hurt. He’s twisted in too many ways to count. She’s the girl with nothing left to lose. He was the boy who lost everything he lived for.
How do you lose everything? You start by falling.
In this sequel to Wallbanger, the second book in the Cocktail series, fan favorites Caroline and Simon negotiate the rollercoaster of their new relationship while house-sitting in San Francisco.
Playing house was never so much fun—or so confusing. With her boss on her honeymoon, Caroline’s working crazy long hours to keep the interior design company running—especially since she’s also the lead designer for the renovation of a gorgeous old hotel on Sausalito. So with her hotshot photographer boyfriend gallivanting all over the world for his job, she and Simon are heavy-duty into “absence makes the heart grow fonder” mode. Neither has any complaints about the great reunion sex, though! Then Simon decides he’s tired of so much traveling, and he’s suddenly home more. A lot more. And wanting Caroline home more, too. Though their friends’ romantic lives provide plenty of welcome distraction, eventually Caroline and Simon have to sort their relationship out. Neither wants “out of sight, out of mind,” but can they create their own happy mid-ground cliché?
There are so many things that I love about Alice’s writing, besides the fact that I’ve been reading her work for years. She makes me laugh out loud, not many authors can do that. She makes me giggle at her female characters, roll my eyes at myself, and swoon over her male characters.
