August Book Review

 Hey loves. It's book review day. Before I share what I read in August lets talk about when I'm reading and what I am changing up. The last few months I have only been reading when I put Audrianna down for bed, then fall asleep reading and have to go back a few pages because I forgot what I read or I skipped ahead on my kindle and didn't mean to. I joined a "offline healing" group to help being more productive, present, and less mindless scrolling. Instead of taking my phone into the bathroom, or scrolling while feeding Audrianna I am going to be reading a book. I have my kindle ready for our nursing sessions and a book in the bathroom. Lets see how much more reading I get done in September. When do you take time to read?

Adrienne Dealey has spent the past six years working for hotels in exotic resort towns. This summer she has decided to make Nantucket home. Left flat broke by her ex-boyfriend, she is desperate to earn some fast money. When the desirable Thatcher Smith, owner of Nantucket's hottest restaurant, is the only one to offer her a job, she wonders if she can get by with no restaurant experience. Thatcher gives Adrienne a crash course in the business...and they share an instant attraction. But there is a mystery about their situation: what is it about Fiona, the Blue Bistro's chef, that captures Thatcher's attention again and again? And why does such a successful restaurant seem to be in its final season before closing its doors for good? Despite her uncertainty, Adrienne must decide whether to open her heart for the first time, or move on, as she always does.

Infused with intimate Nantucket detail and filled with the warmth of passion and the breeze of doubt, The Blue Bistro is perfect summer reading.

This has to be my favorite book so far this year. I started off slow reading it, just not making the time but when it automatically went back to the library on its due date I knew I had to request it again to finish it. The book did not disappoint. I also loved that the main characters name was Adrienne. 5 out of 5 stars 

Two radio show hosts. One show. Who will come out on top?

In a moment of restlessness, Tate Grayson sold his multimillion-dollar company and spun his love of sports into a radio talk show. Life, and love, is too short to take seriously—a fact he enjoys rubbing in uptight radio host Noelle Butler’s face.

After the death of her parents, a tragedy she blamed on herself, Noelle vowed to live a controlled, focused life. Now a psychologist, she channels her need for connection into her radio show. But when the arrogant sportscaster next door tells listeners men shouldn’t get married, she’s all too happy to yank the silver spoon out of his overprivileged mouth.

Their heated on-air arguments are a hit, but when the station director forces them to do a joint show for two weeks, Tate and Noelle object. They can’t stand each other, despite the attraction sizzling beneath every interaction. But if they can’t pull the struggling radio station back from the brink, they’ll lose their jobs. Or worse, their hearts.

Another great read of the month. 4 out of 5 stars.

Love sucks. Every time Beatrice Hammersmith falls for a guy, he breaks her heart and steals her appliances. It’s no fun sleeping alone and waking up without a coffeemaker. Fed up, Beatrice hatches a plan with two other women to find true love and marry billionaires. First on their agenda is to capture the heart of hottie billionaire, Cole Stevens. Cole is handsome, brilliant, and he owns his own appliances. Operation Billionaire sends the three new friends (and one of their mothers and a passel of children) to Cole’s ranch to make him fall in love with Beatrice. But their plans run into some trouble. It’s not so easy to bag a billionaire. Will Beatrice find love with Cole? Will she marry the billionaire of her dreams? How to Marry a Billionaire is the first book in the hot and hilarious new trilogy by the author of the Matchmaker books.

This is a full-length hot and hilarious novel, perfect for fans of billionaire romance, beach reads, romantic comedy, and chick lit.

I could not put this book down. Not your typical love story, twists and turns that you makes you wonder how things are going to turn out. I also like that is it something unrealistic. 5 out of 5 stars. 

Escort by Skye Warren

A male escort. His virgin client. What happens when one night isn't enough?

I'm an escort, which means this date is nothing more than a mutually enjoyable transaction. There shouldn't be any surprises, not for one as jaded as me, but when I walk into the penthouse suite of L'Etoile, everything changes.

1) For one thing, Bea is heartstoppingly gorgeous. Pale green eyes and endless freckles. Curves I want to spend all night exploring, as if her body was made for me.

2) Her innocence makes me want to use my entire inventory of bedroom tricks on her and then invent a few more.

3) Except that... she's a virgin.

I can initiate her into the world of desire without letting her get attached, can't I? A few hours of tutoring, and at the end of the night a small fortune will be deposited into my bank account.

But once I realize one night with her won't be enough, I'm the one who's screwed.

Not one of my favorites. I still feel have so many unanswered questions. 2 out of 5 stars. 

Anyone have good recommendations for Fall or Halloween book recommendations?

  1. I usually read before bed, but now that I'm not commuting I read in the morning too with coffee. I try for 25 minutes then but sometimes only manage 15.

  2. I liked The Blue Bistro a lot! I tend to read while blow drying my hair or brushing my teeth, while eating breakfast and lunch, while folding laundry and while waiting in the car line to pick up my son.... basically any spare moment I get!

  3. I really enjoyed The Blue Bistro. Now that I don't commute anymore I try to read before bedtime, which used to be my prime mindless scrolling time, so sometimes the reading loses out.

  4. I still haven't read any of Elin Hilderbrand's books. One of those authors I keep meaning to get to.. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your month!
