Frisky Fall: My Fall Reading Challenge

Yellow wet autumn leaves on the background a dark old wood

Time to bust out those leggings, oversized sweatshirts, and grab some Pumpkin Spice. Fall is here! As we relish in the changing of the leaves and the cooling of the weather, it is a very good time to curl up with a Pumpkin Spice Latte and enjoy a good book.
I will admit, I’ve failed at doing reading this summer, and I could do a lot more of it. I know I’m always busy writing, but reading makes me a better writer, so I need to make time for it.
I’ve decided that I’m going to compile a list of books I want to read this fall, and hopefully some of you will join me. Most of these books will be Contemporary and/or Erotic Romance, BWWM and not. As I finish, I will post my reviews here.
My list is below, and each title is a link to the book’s Amazon Page.
Let’s get reading!

BEAUTIFUL VENGENCE – Perri Forrest & Jasmine Williams

Fifty Shades of Grey – EL James

**I know I’m so behind on this one. I’ve read chapter one, but it is a hard book to get through. I need to finally finish, so I’m not left out. I’ve seen the movie, though.

Billionaire Romance: Billionaire Games (Book 1) – Anna Collins

10-80: Line of Duty Series – Xyla Turner

Beautiful Prey: The Storm Series – Phoenix Daniels

Only You – Ancelli

Up In The Treehouse – KK Allen

As the Fall goes, I may add or subtract books from this list, and we will see how it works. When I finish a book, I will review it.

I’m also doing NaNoWriMo in November, going to make this fall fun and exciting.

Summer Love Reviews: Just A Man

Sorry for not posting a review last week, I was on vacation with my family in Greece. We had a fantastic time, and I got a ton of research done for a future book that takes place on the Greek island of Crete.

The book I’m reviewing this week is Just A Man, by. Shannon Youngblood. I got to read an ARC copy of this book and let me tell you, this book is everything and has it all. It is an Alpha Billionaire romance. Normally, Alpha’s aren’t my thing, but Alex Porter has a heart of gold and won me over when it comes to Alphas.

About the Book:

justamanFor Charlotte Ann-Marie Hightower, living with her best friend, applying for a Personal Assistant job at Alex Porter Industries and enjoying all that Southern California had to offer was enough to scab over the tragic truth of her past. Little did she know that Alex Porter, a sexy billionaire entrepreneur, would turn everything on its axis.

Alex comes with his own past of tragic regret that often causes his desire for complete control in all areas of his life. However, with one look from the fiery haired daydreamer, everything changed for him too.

Now Charlotte finds herself facing the deepest darkest aspects of the past while Alex refuses to do the same. The question becomes, can they save each other from a past that quickly becomes their present?

Just A Man is set for release on June 30th, you can buy your copy HERE!

My Review:

I loved this premiere novel from Shannon Youngblood. The chemistry literally drips from the pages as you get into the complex, yet sizzling relationship between Alex and Charlotte. Each character has their own past that dictates their relationship. I found Charlotte to be outspoken and fun, which I love in the leading female characters. I’m currently reading very popular Billionaire Alpha Erotic Romance (take your guess) and the lead female is always putting herself down and it is driving me nuts. Charlotte, on the other hand, has spark and spunk. Then there is Alex Porter who drips with sex appeal **fans self**. He has a need for order and control, and Charlotte is the total opposite.
Charlotte’s huge personality and backbone helped me personally get into the story, and it didn’t hurt that Alex sounds like a sexy beast.
This story is excellently written, and I couldn’t wait to read more and more. You won’t be disappointed with this book, and I am so excited for the upcoming books in the series (I’ve started with the second book… OMG you guys will eat it up once it is released). There is a sizzling romance, a hot man, and suspense that ties this great story together.
Shannon Youngblood has a winner on her hands.
