Happy Summer!

Happy Summer Everyone!  
I have been enjoying the wonderfully warm weather! We have air conditioning and a pool...what's not to love?
I also took the summer off from my job. I wanted the time to truly enjoy this summer. Time passes too quickly and I really needed the break. 
Anyway...all of this free time has given time to READ!!! 
I have read and read...and I still have a giant TBR pile.
Here are the keepers in my READ Pile..and I highly recommend them!!
 
Cora Cade is a new author who has the writing style of a seasoned pro. Her story is full of the things I love to read. Hunky men, strong women, attraction and hot steamy sex! It's also the first in a series and I know I will be waiting impatiently for the next story!
  I love Sofie Metropolis!! I love everything about her. Her moxie..her ability to find trouble without even trying and her knack for luring the hot and hunkies!!  This story is no different than the others in the series. It has the mystery and the fun of spending time with Sofie and her Greek relatives. The only thing that drives me crazy is that I have to wait for the next Sofie book!
Animal Attraction is a book from the RAGT held in Ohio in June. I was lucky enough to have a friend (thanks Shelly) grab me "paper" copy since I wasn't able to go this year. It has 4 of my favorite writers. Lori Foster, Heidi Betts, Maisey Yates and Jules Bennett. Their stories were heart warming and they were great reads! The money from this book purchase was donated to the Animal Adoption Foundation of Hamilton Ohio..a great organization for animals!
Next week I'll post a few more of the books that I have very much enjoyed!

Ask Again Later by Liz Czukas







One prom. Two dates. A night to remember. Sliding Doors meets Pretty in Pink in this delightfully romantic paperback original.

HEART LACOEUR'S PROM CHECKLIST:

1) Find the perfect dress. One-of-a-kind vintage from a consignment store? Yes, please.
2) Forget dates-go with a group of your best friends. No fuss, no drama.
3) HAVE FUN! Rock out on the dance floor. There's no Prince Charming to impress, after all!

Heart used to dream of prom as the chance to be a fairy princess at her own ball. But by her junior year, she's realized that the angsty, panic-inducing buildup is...a little overrated. So when her brilliant plan to go to prom with a group of friends is interrupted by two unexpected (and not precisely welcome) invites, Heart knows there's only one foolproof, drama-free solution: flip a coin.

The last thing Heart expects is that her simple coin flip will give her the chance to live out both dates. And where her prom night ends up might be the most surprising thing of all....

With the perfect blend of charming romance, effortless humor, and hilarious twists, debut author Liz Czukas delivers an irresistible story that will captivate fans of Sarah Mlynowski, Lauren Barnholdt, and Stephanie Perkins. Readers will fall head-over-heels for Heart as she discovers that the nights that start out as disasters sometimes turn into the nights you'll never forget.
(From Edelweiss)


My Quick Thoughts:

This was such an engaging read, I consumed it in one afternoon! I just fell in love with the characters and the situations were sometimes hilarious, sometimes frustrating, sometimes sad - just like prom night should be! This is an author to watch and trust me, this was a fun book to read.
