My library hold came in for the audio version. Great day to stay in and read 🔥.
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.
I love this cover ❤️📚❤️
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.
I got ahold of the audiobook (the holds at my library are ridiculous!) I‘m not doing anything else the rest of the evening other than listening to this.
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 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
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.”
“When I walked into the living room I was brought up short by the tiny figure curled up on the couch. Cora wasn‘t the type to wrap up in a fluffy #blanket and watch sad movies on Lifetime, so the fact that both those things were happening right now made me drop my bag on the floor and rush to her side.” #QuotsyJune19

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
‘Keep to the green grass. Don‘t you go a-meddling with old stone or cold Wights or prying in their houses, unless you be strong folk with hearts that never falter!‘
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?
“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.
