It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organize yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment, and er… add to that ever-growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are!
Last week I read:
Sex Says by Max Monroe
What happens when the one guy you want to avoid the most, is unavoidable?
Lola Sexton is the writer behind Sex Says, a successful relationship column at the San Francisco Times. She’s a pro at advising others on their love lives, but if there’s one thing she isn’t in the market for, it’s love.
Reed Luca is a wanderer and a jack of all trades. He doesn’t believe happiness comes from a nine to five job, or that success is delivered through a paycheck.
But opportunity often finds its way to those who aren’t looking.
When Reed signs up to write an anti-Sex Says relationship column, the result is all out war.
Sex Says: If you let guys walk all over you, you could end up smelling like feet.
Reed This: Don’t try to change who you are. There’s someone out there for everyone. Take someone with a foot fetish falling in love with someone who smells like feet as an example.
Sex Says: Appreciate what you’re given.
Reed This: Don’t like what you’re given? Fight for what you want.
Sex Says: Don’t ever date a guy named Reed Luca.
Reed This: Find a woman like Lola Sexton and find her quick. She’s a unicorn.
Lola hates Reed. Really, she does.
It’s just too bad the guy is so likable.
Five First Dates by Erin McCarthy
Every perfect rom-com has a twist that leads the heroine to her happily ever after.
Me? Somehow, in any room full of Prince Charmings, I always manage to find the one frog.
So this time, I’ve found my own twist. Four of my friends will each set me up. Four first dates. Four chances at my own happily-ever-after.
My brother’s best friend even offered to watch my baby while I’m out finding true love.
Only Maddox has seriously grown up since I saw him last. The guy next door now looks more like the guy on a magazine cover. He’s inked and sexy. Muscular. Utterly irresistible. And… big. Oh, and did I mention he’s now my roommate?
Surely having a brother’s-friend-with-benefits won’t hurt my search for Mr. Right.
Especially if he’s my fifth first date…
Love in the Headlines by Candace Knoebel
New York’s notorious serial dater.
Bad boy turned media mogul.
And… my current assignment.
It’s an accident. A serendipitous push when he knocks the Kindle from my hands, and then asks if he can replace it with that Casanova smile I’d seen plastered in countless magazines.
He gives me his personal number on a business card.
A card that, in a moment of panic, I use to secure the job of my dreams.
I have thirty days to learn everything about him for an exposé.
To get close enough to make him fall for me.
The thing is, I’ve never been in love. Barely even been kissed.
I’m Primrose Amberly.
Kansas’ quirkiest book nerd.
A good girl tossed in shark-infested waters.
And one failure away from tucking my tail and heading back to the fields of sunflowers.
That is all it takes for his bed to become my undoing.
For my dreams to come close to being realized.
For a surprising love to burn between us.
But, the clock is ticking, and I fear the choice I have to make when those thirty days are up.
Next, I’ll be Reading
A Secret for a Secret by Helena Hunting
