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

Intimate Strangers – Tara Mills

ENVY Deceptive Desires #1 – Amarie Avant

Deep Betrayal – Raven Mera (Finished – REVIEW COMING SOON)

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: MINT, by. Blue Davis

Hey, readers!

Besides writing, something else I love to do is read. Over the summer, I want to catch up on my reading and find some new and exciting reads. I will mainly be reading Contemporary Romance. If you have any book suggestions, please sent them to me at janaewrites@hotmail.com

I will try and post reviews once a week as best I can.

My first review of the Summer will be MINT an Interracial Romance by. Blue Davis.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

MINTLexi Steele began as a jewel thief in Seattle. Brave, clever and a little reckless, she defied the status quo while satisfying her hunger for an adrenaline high. When a high-rise diamond heist went wrong, she promised herself to stick to retrieving unclaimed gold, which was less likely to lead to violent situations.

Did she sentence herself to a boring life? Hardly. She now trots around the globe, seeking lost treasure of the world. There’s just one problem. As exciting as her life is, she has no one to share it with.
James Ashton, her chief rival in the business, would love to fix this problem for her. Too bad they have been competing in the same field for almost a decade. Granted, they’ve been flirting for almost that whole time, but at the end of the day, business has always been business.

When Lexi discovers that she needs a man to help her deal with locals in Haiti, she makes a somewhat reluctant offer to split the take with him in return for a temporary partnership. Is the implausible partnership doomed from start, or will they cooperate and learn to work together?

When events take a turn for the worse, she and James must rely on each other to escape back to the States with the gold. Do they lay aside their differences and fight to succeed or do they push each other away and end in failure?

You can purchase your copy of MINT on Amazon.

MY REVIEW:

I’ve been a Blue Davis fan since the winter when I discovered her books. I was very excited for MINT and this book did not disappoint. In fact, I think it is her best book yet. (My 2nd fav is Love in Transit)

I was hooked from page one. First, Lexi is a strong and independent woman on her own in a foreign country hunting treasure. She is determined to accomplish what she set out to do. You cannot help but love this leading female.

James oozes sex appeal and the sexual tension between he and Lexi burns up the pages. I was dying as I waited for their first kiss and once it happened, there was no turning back. The sex…WOW…HOT HOT AND HOT!
I ate this book up and read it in a day. I had a toddler climbing all over me, but I refused to put this book down.
You won’t be disappointed when you buy this book. I love the treasure hunting element to the book, it kept the storyline fresh (Plus National Treasure is one of my favorite movies… secretly love the idea of Treasure hunting). There are twists and turns that leave you gasping for air, this is one of the best books I’ve read all year. I cannot wait to get my hands on the upcoming books in the saga.
