Weekly Wrap-Up June 4th-10th

So I went on a wee bit of a re-reading binge. All four of my physical books this week were re-reads. And than I also had one e-book.

Dark Wild Night(Wild Seasons #3) by Christina Lauren *****(re-read)
#Loliver that is all.

Dirty Rowdy Thing(Wild Seasons #2) by Christina Lauren ****(re-read)
Re-reading Dark Wild Night made me want to re-visit Finn and Harlow as well.

Moonlight on Nightingale Way(On Dublin Street #6) by Samantha Young *****(re-read)
This is my favourite book in the series. There's just something about Logan, Grace and Maia's dynamic.

This is One Moment(Come Back to Me #2) by Mila Gray ****.5(re-read)
This book was still just as romantic and heart breaking the second time around. Here's my original review.

Linemates by Van Barrett **
Ignoring the God awful cover, I picked this up hoping to get some Him feels. Because let's be honest, Jamie and Wes are still my everything. Well Linemates is nowhere close to giving me any sort of Jamie and Wes vibe. The good; it was fun and quick. Involved a lot of hockey. The relationship between Cal and Tyler had a lot of time to develop. Beyond that, the dialogue was lackluster and repetitive. Like seriously juvenile responses, a lot of "hehs" "duhs" that kind of  shit. This is supposed to be a hot romance, yea that does the opposite of making me fan myself. I was eye rolling all over the place. Also I found the talk from Cal and Tyler surrounding Cal being in the closest to be super passe. And downright insulting at times. Tyler and other people some pretty rude things about being gay or Cal being gay and Cal just shrugs it off. Especially when it comes to Tyler. I'm pretty sure you're not going to sit back and let some insult you or take advantage of you, laugh about it. For a romance story that is supposed to be fluff, I definitely find myself pissed off more than enjoying some steaminess between two hot as hell hockey players.

What did you guys read this week?

Happy reading!



  1. I need to have a rereading binge! I keep wanting to reread a handful of books but I haven't made it happen yet. I really want to try the Samantha Young series. I love when a certain couple just really connects with you. It definitely makes a book rereadable. Love all your covers this week and the pic with all the Pop Vinyls is awesome! Have a great week!

  2. I've been meaning to read Come Back to Me and This is One Moment for a while. I need to do that SOON!

    1. Yea you do! You'll love them. I think they're the best military romances I've come across; so far.

    2. That's so good to hear. I can be so picky about military themes. Because when they get it wrong it ruins it for me. Robert is a 20 year Navy veteran so I'm well-versed with military life. I was reading one a few months ago and the main guy was enlisted (not an officer) and was a pilot. Uh... NO. That does not happen. Pilots are officers. It was hard to get past that one.

    3. I get you. It's impossible to not tear the book apart when they screw even little things up about something you know so well.
      Like with Scoring Wilder, I was a little weary going in because it's about soccer and I've hate many a books that fuck terms and rules up. But thankfully Grey did a pretty decent job.
