Love is in the air...

Hey guys! It's been a while and that's a good thing. I've been chugging away on WIP #2, it's the one demanding all of my time at the moment, and I've been reading scads of books. I've been on quite a role bookwise and I think I've figured out why. Love. For as long as I've been blogging, I've always tried to be very balanced in the genres of books I read and reviewed, but sometimes that ended up with more DNF books than I would have liked and a lot more books that took me forever to get through. Here's my truth. I LOVE love. I can't get enough of love stories and I am not ashamed to admit it :0)

Heck, even my WIP is a love story. I'm a sap and I've finally decided to embrace it! The purpose of this post isn't to just babble on about how much I love love, because that might get boring. Since I've been knocking back books like some people knock back beers, I thought I'd share some of my favorite recent reads. Most of these are New Adult, but there's an adult one in there, too. Let's get to it!

Losing It by Cora Carmack

Seriously, guys, the awkward! I absolutely adored everything about Bliss and I really think her and I could be friends in real life. I like that she's clumsy, both verbally and physically, and that she doesn't really apologize for the way she is. Fortunately, I'm no the only one who appreciates her...Garrick *swoon* ;0)

Wallbanger by Alice Clayton
Okay, so not only did this book have plenty of wonderful sexytimes, it also had an immense amount of humor, a great friendship between the two main characters (not to mention the wonderful friendships the characters had apart from each other), hilarious antics and banter, and a cat with some serious snark. This book was fabulous. Laugh out loud funny and fan yourself sexy!
Slammed by Colleen Hoover
I've been told to read this book for ages now and I just never picked it up. I don't know why and I could kick myself for it, because this book was phenomenal! It was a little complicated, a good dose funny, definitely heartbreaking, and so romantic. I'm currently reading book two so that I can speed on into book three. I am such a fan of Lake and Will and I can't wait to see where life takes them :0)
Emancipating Andie by Priscilla Glenn
I found this one on a whim. A blog I follow (stalk) on Facebook mentioned it and how much she absolutely adored this book and this author. I read the synopsis and immediately snatched it up. I'm so glad that I did, because this was such a fabulous story. There is some serious tension in this one and it's made even hotter by the forbiddeness of it! Andie's a play it safe girl and her life is relatively boring, but fortunately Chase shows up just in time to shake up her world a little. Love those two!
