I liked this. This was good for a weekend read to avoid the world. It was very similar to a book I JUST read so I compared them as I read along - which annoyed me. I would have liked it better if I were not comparing ex-baseball player romances.

Dogearedcopy Just out of curiosity, what is the other ex-baseball player romance? (edited) 1w

I‘m hesitant when there is a book with a lot of hype around it. I was able to check this out from the library and started it this evening and boom I‘m 2/3 through! I want to go to sleep but this is a “one more chapter” kinda read. Man! I have to get up early tomorrow.

Cinfhen That‘s what‘s been holding me away.... the hype!! Glad to hear it really is a page turner 😊 2w

I flicked the tab on the top of my beer and narrowed my eyes. I wasn‘t about to let this guy rain on my friend‘s day, even if he seemed #determined to. Those eyes that really were too pretty to be in such a sour-looking face narrowed at Nash, and I could literally feel the heat of uncoiling anger rolling off those wide shoulders. #QuotsyJune19

My entire body thundered with need. I wanted him more than donuts and birds—more than I‘d wanted Hartford. I wanted him to take me hard and fast, then slow and soft. I wanted to tell him the burden I carried, the horrible thing I‘d kept from him. He. Will. #Destroy. You. I snapped away from his hold and rubbed my arms, trying to make them warm at the sudden chill. #QuotsyJune19

The Chocolate Touch | Laura Florand
post image

The cooking area was set off from the main living room, but no walls separated it from the rest of the glossy, #modern apartment. Floor-to-ceiling windows took up one entire wall, an uninterrupted line without curtains or shades, providing a beautiful view of the Jardins du Luxembourg. These windows continued on to form one wall of the kitchen, so that working there was like working suspended above the city. #QuotsyJune19

Christinak @Victoriahoperose I really liked the movie - I went into reading this expecting to strip away pieces they added to make the movie- when surprisingly much was true. 4w

She lusted after everything he produced and owned so intensely and sinfully. Surely she must lust after him. Never in his life had he felt so #positive of that. And yet, driven by some old, stupid weakness of his, he had still held back far too long, just in case she wanted to escape. #QuotsyJune19

The sudden blast of #music from a car in the parking lot made me jump. I leaned over the breezeway railing that overlooked the parking lot and searched below until I found a rugged-looking black Jeep with the top off. The Beastie Boys song “Fight for Your Right” reached my ears. I blinked. Damn, it was loud.

“We managed to find the tea #groves,” Lord Alaric interjected. “Pekoe is a form of Bohea tea, which is mixed with small white flowers until their perfume infuses the leaves. In comparison to our scent at the time,” he added with a rueful twist of his lips, “the tea was delightful.”

I opened the door into rosy chaos. #Rose wallpaper, rose carpet—if there was a surface I could stick a rose onto, I did it. Gold candelabras too; I had plenty of those. White taper candles with romantic drips spilling down them—it was all there. My private escape. My romantic nirvana. Soaker tub. Deep. Long. With a shelf overflowing with bubble bath gels, salts, pearls, and oils. Fragrances of lavender, geranium, and of course, rose. #QuotsyJune19

His offer did sound good.Extremely good. I didn‘t even care that he‘d dissed my mood & said I looked like crap. The word bed floated before me like a beautiful, impossible dream. “You‘ve got time?” I sniffed.“You don‘t have to be at work or something?” “No.” He shook his head.“It‘s all good. & later if you decide you need anything else or want to go to the #doctor I can organize that, no problem.You could just text me or something.” #QuotsyJune19

A friend recommended this to me for my #NorthCarolina read. This is beautifully written. I‘ve heard some complain it‘s too wordy but I think the author writes to illustrate the story. I could visualize so much. This is definitely tragic with a host of unsavory characters but still a great read. I‘ll be looking out for ore books by Wiley Cash.

I let go of her arm, grab a black silk scarf off the chair, and hold it up. “You can‘t take this off until I tell you, okay?” #Suspicion washes over her face. “Is this some kind of weird sex thing?” I chuckle. “No. But I like the way you think.” She rolls her eyes to the ceiling right before I cover them with the scarf, and the world as she knows it fades to black. #QuotsyJune19

The Great Alone | Kristin Hannah

I got this book from the library because it is set in #Alaska and I could ✔️ it off my list. I have not read anything by her and I had no idea what to expect. This is one of those books about troubled people with troubled lives that are... well troubling. I liked it. This is been one book that I have been thinking back on the characters and their story since I set it down.
PS does anyone have favorites set in US states they would recommend?

TheAromaofBooks Patrick McManus's short story collections (he wrote for Outdoor Life) are set in Idaho. I especially recommend his earlier books, as those stories are more about his childhood, growing up just running around in the woods, learning to camp and fish. He isn't everyone's cup of tea, but I find him genuinely hilarious. His explanation about how every goal in life is surrounded by a swirling vortex of sequences is a family byline for us! :-D 1mo

“Simon, I need, please, inside, now,” I panted, almost #incoherent with lust. Simon, schooled in Caroline shorthand, understood this completely and was poised between my legs, hips nuzzled up into mine within seconds. He leaned down, kissing me wantonly, the taste of me all over him. And I loved it.
