My Rating: 4 stars

Blue is feeling blue after his ex dumped him 6 months ago and he is drowning his sorrows at the bar of the resort his sister is doing her wedding at in a week. He knows that his ex is invited to the wedding and he is a bit worried to see him.
Then a handsome stranger sits next to him at the bar and somehow Blue spills his guts only to see his ex coming into the bar with a new beau. It was completely devastating and humiliating that he has no one as a plus one for the wedding to at least show that he has moved along. When he confesses that to the stranger (Tristan) this stranger does a very bold and hot move that makes Blue's knees go weak.
They then decide to play a charade and try to convince everyone that they are a couple. But will things start to get real for them?!

Those two are just adorable together, the humor, the flirting and the hot stuff is just amazing! This was a debut novel for the author and since I loved the characters and the Marian clan I decided to buy the next book immediately. I also loved that the chapters were alternating between Blue and Tristan so I get to know what each was thinking! So refreshing!!

This is an M/M read and has very explicit hot scenes, not for the faint at heart ;)

First of all, I know this book isn't for everyone, it is an M/M/M.
Jonas appears to be a sweet-natured and caring artist that came back to open his dream studio. Unknown to him, Ex-cop Mace knows horrible things about Jonas no one knows. So he is determined to kill him, but something is stopping him. He has been watching him closely for weeks and still can't pull the trigger, something is nagging at him.
Then when Navy SEAL Cole comes to visit Jonas to ask about his long lost sister that he just discovered is lost for good, things start to heat up.
Secrets from the past get unveiled and charge up the air between the three guys. Will the truth be revealed in time or will it be too late for them.

A sweet read with suspense and shooters involved. I liked the flow of the story and the romance was hot! This was a new author for me but I will check more books soon! I might pick up the next in the series ;)

One By One by Chris Carter

My Rating: 5 stars

OMG this book was intense.
Amazing writing that had me turning pages and not feel whatever is around me. I was so consumed in this captivating thriller till the last page. Twists and turns all the way.
This is the first book I read by this author. I discovered its the fifth book in the series so I will go ahead and get the previous four books!! I need more of his writing!!

Detective Robert Hunter gets a phone call to open an Internet website only to witness a gruesome torture/murder. He even makes viewers choose between 2 types of torture, and the viewers choose!!! It's horrifying!!

Trying to catch the killer is extremely hard because he is always a step ahead and knows exactly what their moves will be. He is so clever that they can't even track him.
Every time the tortures are worse, creatively wicked. But why is this psycho doing this? Is he choosing the victims randomly or does he have an agenda?

This is not for the faint at heart. The details of the tortures and horrifying murders will haunt you for all time. I know it will haunt me!!

Booking Through Thursday: Springing


Spring is coming unusually fast this year (at least here in the Northeast). Do your reading habits change as we get into the warmer months?

My reading habits don't seem to change lately. I haven't been reading too much and going real slow. Life is pulling me back from reading with all things going on in my life but I do try my best to read whenever I can.
So I don't think the weather or the season have anything to do with it. Usually I read when commuting to and from work if I don't get distracted by my phone or Ipad.
