For most of last week I read one book, Hidden Currents by Christine Feehan. I had a tough time with this particular read and yes, it took me four days to finish it. Last in the Drake Sisters series, this is Elle and Jackson's story. Elle is the youngest of her sisters and the most powerful of them all. Jackson and Elle have known they are meant for each other for a long time, but neither wanted to give in to the inevitable.
I've been waiting for this book for a while and was really looking forward to Elle's story. Unfortunately, I did not enjoy this book. The characters themselves were likable up to a certain point, however the plot was a huge turnoff for me and I could not get past it. I found the book to be inconsistent and repetitive at times, but that was not my main objection. I blogged about my thoughts and included Spoilers at Impressions...
On Friday of last week, I went on a bit of an M/M reading binge and with this "big push," I'm only one away from the finish line! Besides the books I've reviewed here, there are quite a few others I have not reviewed, but read.
Next week I'll be posting reviews on, Islands by Samantha Kane, a recommendation from Renee of Renee's Book Addictions. I must thank her for this recommendation -- a love story that made me sigh. ePistols at Dawn by Z.A. Maxfield was also a last minute addition to my list as this is her latest release -- a worthy one. Last but not least, Out of Bounds by T.A. Chase, an erotic trip through the world of sports.
And finally, I picked up Boarding Action by Angela Benedetti, a new M/M short piece included in the Walk the Plank anthology, a new release about pirates. Yes, pirates. Ms. Benedetti's short story is set in contemporary times, so please don't expect to find planks and eye patches. A short piece about a "secret crush" with some unexpected events and a final "maybe.":) I didn't read this piece for the Challenge, this was a relaxation read. *g*
This week was also a slow one -- I think summer is just taking its toll -- I read two books, The Edge of Impropriety by Pam Rosenthal and No Limits by Alison Kent. I'll let you know what I think of these two books later on in the week.
This brings us up to date. So, what have you been reading, any good ones? Any good recommendations?
