May’s Author Week + Other News!

The last few weeks have been a complete blur and extremely busy!

Last week Heather, Nikyta and Susan went away and left Jen all by her lonesome to manage the blog! Poor girl! But she did a great job keeping it going! You might have noticed that there weren’t many updates on what Theme Week or Challenge Week was and, if you did, that’s why.

So! In a quick recap, here’s what we missed in updating y’all on.

For Theme Week, we decided on Urban Fantasy Week! Here’s what we read:

Heather C read Magic Gifts by Ilona Andrews (3.5 stars)
JustJen read The Saturnalia Effect by Heidi Belleau & Violetta Vane (4 stars)
Nikyta read Shamrock Green by Jackson Cordd (3.5 stars)
Susan65 read Cruce de Caminos by Heidi Belleau & Violetta Vane (4 stars)

All in all, not a bad week considering that this wasn’t a genre liked by all of us LOL

Moving on! Next up was Challenge Week where Nikyta picked books for each of the other girls to read. Here’s the results:

Heather C had to read The Body on the Beach by L.J. LaBarthe and DNFed it 😦
Nikyta was challenged by the voters to read The Magpie Lord by K.J. Charles and loved it!
Susan65 had to read Blood Bound by Patricia Briggs and really liked it!

Any week that means Susan65 likes a M/F book means it was successful! 😛

Now, the moment y’all have been waiting for! RIGHT?!

May’s Author Week is going to be focused on….

Kim Fielding!

Woohoo! We are excited to have her!

We’ve got some great books scheduled for her this week including:

 Good Bones by Kim Fielding eBook The Gig by Kim Fielding eBook Pilgrimage by Kim Fielding eBook The Tin Box by Kim Fielding eBook

JustJen started off our week with her review of Speechless, so check out what she thought of it!

Annnnnnnnnd, that concludes this week’s news! Stick around to see what else this week has in store for you 😉

Happy Sunday everyone!

Blurb: Addiction and desperation drive Sean O’Hara to a critical crossroads. Will he make the right decision, or will the floodwaters bound for New Orleans sweep him away?

Street kid Sean O’Hara has never had it easy, but New Orleans has driven him to his knees. His girlfriend’s broken up with him for a sugar daddy, a gun-toting pimp has robbed him of everything but the clothes on his back, and he’s down to his last two Oxycontin. Sean’s no seasoned streetwalker, but he’s not above it either, not when he’s already itching for his next fix.

A familiar-seeming stranger named Ángel may be his ticket to some quick cash, but only if Sean’s willing to help him indulge a high-class john’s weird fetish for the night. As Ángel tells him, in this city and this business, you have to get a little weird to survive.

When night falls on the French Quarter, Sean realizes Ángel and the john want more from him than he was expecting to give. What once seemed merely strange soon crosses the line into supernatural and sinister. And Ángel, the man Sean had viewed as a partner and protector, might also be his otherworldly judge and executioner. Continue reading
