The Brits Weekly Book Biz!

Some fabulous news (well for me, as it’s the first time I have achieved it!)

I have finished my August tbr reading list!

AND I have read all the arc’s I have been sent so far. I’m so pleased with myself!

Without further ado…


Eye Candy Anthology – various 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧 (My review)

Release date: 5 Sept I was offered an arc by the publisher, 5 authors and 5 halloween novellas based on their current series. Tijan’s was gripping and totally scary,  spooky swooning from Bella and the usual fabulous hilarity from Helena (was great to revisit the Church of Bane!!!)

Running into Love by Aurora Rose Reynolds  🇬🇧  🇬🇧  🇬🇧  🇬🇧  🇬🇧 (My review)

This book was not only hilarious but totally heartwarming. This woman knows how to write a romance!

The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh  🇬🇧  🇬🇧  🇬🇧  🇬🇧  (My review)

The Wrath and the Dawn stole my heart (well more Khalid!) and I had to know what happened in the conclusion. I must admit I spent most of this book hating every character apart from Khalid. Think I know where my loyalties lie!



For next week I find myself with a decision to make.

Do I wait for the arcs I know are coming to arrive or do I pick a shortie and dive in? I’m the type of reader who can’t have 2 books on the go….


What do you do when you know a slew of arcs are coming?

Hope you had a great week and I look forward to reading your updates.


It’s the release of Havoc by Laramie Briscoe! Read all about it here!

Havoc (Moonshine Task Force #3) by Laramie Briscoe

I love this authors writing!  Alas I didn’t have the reading time to accept an arc but it’s been added to my wish list!  The other books in the series are so good so go and grab yours!


When a marriage of convenience turns into the passion of a lifetime…

Holden “Havoc” Thompson My job as the leader of the Moonshine Task Force is my life. I eat, breathe, and sleep it. The men under my command mean the world to me. Knowing they count on my guidance has kept my demons at bay for longer than I care to admit.

The control I have over myself is an iron fist that sometimes threatens to squeeze the life out of me. What I want more than anything is to live again – let go of the hurt smothering every bit of light I have in this darkness.

I don’t expect it to come in the form of a Moonshiner’s daughter needing my protection.

Leighton Strather

My whole life has been defined by who my family is. In the state of Alabama, we’re number one with a target on our backs. The danger and prestige isn’t for me. I don’t care about the money, and I care too much about the families we’ve ruined.

My brother and my dad are proud of it. They wear their arrest records like a badge of honor. Me? I want as far away from the lifestyle as I can get.

It’s the only reason I ask Holden to marry me. At least that’s what I tell myself.

I never expect his whispered yes to cause such upheaval in my life. Even though I resist, I learn some havoc is good – and this one? It’s a whirlwind of lust, hope, and love and all I can do is let it sweep me away.

#CJRreview : Irresistible You by Kate Meader

Irresistible You Chicago Rebels #1 by: Kate Meader

Three estranged sisters inherit their late father’s failing hockey franchise and are forced to confront a man’s world, their family’s demons, and the battle-hardened ice warriors skating into their hearts.

Harper Chase has just become the most powerful woman in the NHL after the death of her father Clifford Chase, maverick owner of the Chicago Rebels. But the team is a hot mess—underfunded, overweight, and close to tapping out of the league. Hell-bent on turning the luckless franchise around, Harper won’t let anything stand in her way. Not her gender, not her sisters, and especially not a veteran player with an attitude problem and a smoldering gaze designed to melt her ice-compacted defenses.

Veteran center Remy “Jinx” DuPre is on the downside of a career that’s seen him win big sponsorships, fans’ hearts, and more than a few notches on his stick. Only one goal has eluded him: the Stanley Cup. Sure, he’s been labeled as the unluckiest guy in the league, but with his recent streak of good play, he knows this is his year. So why the hell is he being shunted off to a failing hockey franchise run by a ball-buster in heels? And is she seriously expecting him to lead her band of misfit losers to a coveted spot in the playoffs?

He’d have a better chance of leading Harper on a merry skate to his bed…

#CJRguestreview : The Soul Mate by Kendall Ryan (and I am so getting this too!)


THE SOUL MATE by Kendall Ryan

I was so  jealous that Mel (reviewer on the blog) wanted to read this…..she had an advanced copy and I had to hold out till release day!


The smoking-hot one-night stand I was never supposed to see again?

Yeah, well, I might be pregnant, and he’s my OB-GYN.

Get ready to fall head over heels madly in love with the hottest OBGYN doctor you have ever met! This full-length standalone contains the most hilariously awkward lady-doctor visit, lots of playful banter and some good ol’ fashioned baby-makin’!

#CJRgiveaway: Enter here to win a print copy of Grand Slam by Heidi McLaughlin!!


GRAND SLAM (The Boys of Summer, #3) by Heidi McLaughlin is now available in print for the first time!

Publisher: Forever

Win the game. Lose your heart.

Everyone knows who I am and that I could have any female fan I want. That’s supposed to be the “perk” of playing left field for the Boston Renegades. But I don’t want just any woman; I want her.

She should be just another face in the crowd, but I can’t stop thinking about the one night we spent together-and her look of regret the morning after.

Because Saylor Blackwell is the kind of woman who haunts a man. Smart, sexy as hell, and one of the best managers in the business. She’s every ballplayer’s dream woman. And I’d do anything to make things right with her.

I’m done sitting on the bench when it comes to Saylor Blackwell. Time to swing for the fences.

So this weeks book biz is very light. So light it could float away like a balloon!

I’ve been reading A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas ALL week….and I’m still not done, close but not done! That is one BIG book!

I was torn on my feelings for this as far as 49% ish. ACOMAF hit the spot but I found myself wavering in some parts. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still loving it and there is so much info. One area I am highly following is Nesta and Cassian!

Then I hit ‘the battle’ and I am glued to this book! I came out of that world long enough to write this and now I’m off to finish!

I’m not posting what I’m reading this coming week as I have had a whole slew of arc’s hit so I need to sort out what I have to read first.

Hope everyone has had a great weekend and I look forward to seeing what you have read this week 💖

Series Saturday: The Broken Love series by BB Reid (delish and dark!!)


The Broken Love series by BB Reid


An author friend told me that I would love them and I HAD to read and I was led up in bed recovering from a back operation and I devoured the books in 3 days – so good!

Reading order is:

Fear Me

Fear You

Fear Us

Breaking Love


I gave book 1, Fear Me 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧

Wait, what? What did I just read?

I’ll tell you. I just read a corker of a book!

What an antihero!
What a fantastic leading lady!
What fantastic side characters!

I almost felt wrong reading this book. And that is why I loved it.

On to the next book!

#CJRreview Beneath the Truth by Meghan March


I used to believe there were lines in life you don’t cross.

Don’t lie. Don’t cheat. Don’t steal.

Until I learned people don’t always practice what they preach.

I turned in my badge and gun and walked away from everything.

Then I got the call no one wants, and I’m back in New Orleans.

What I don’t expect is for her to be here too.

Another line you don’t cross?

Don’t touch your best friend’s little sister.

She’s always been off-limits.

Too bad I don’t follow the rules anymore.

Great balls of fire! (Hic) It’s Rhett!

My confession: this is the first time I have read this author and now I want to slap myself. I had a 3 hour train journey and this baby got me through it!

Rhett and Ariel (yes really, and she has red hair!) are just THE couple. Rhett is THE man and Ari is THE (nerd) girl.

This book has it all, shocks, twists, turns, the story just flowed and it was HOT as hell!

Ari stole my heart with her super brain and hilarious inner commentary. ‘No one here needed to know how completely infatuated I had been with Rhett, bordering on creepy stalker status.’

A lovely tale of waiting for the the person you know is the one and I liked that when it was time there was no waiting, no push and pull….just take what was theirs.

I haven’t read the other books in this series but after that ending you can bet your bottom dollar that I will!

My monthly book slump is here again!

It’s that time of the month again. I am in a book slump. 📚📚😭

This happens to me all the time lately, well this year it has.

Today I decided to tackle this issue and delve for reasons.

I can only come to the conclusion that arcs are the issue. I sign up for anything that catches my eye, I sign up when I get sent an SOS when not many people have signed up for a particular tour and don’t even get me started on Netgalley! Then I feel the pressure to read them on time!

All this at the expense of my tbr. The pile of books I bought as they really interested me and I really wanted to read them.

I know this has to stop. I need to tell my brain I dont have to feel guilty when I don’t sign up and, more importantly, I need some self control!

So this is it! I feel I need to post to make this real! I have arcs I’ve signed up for to read in September then Ive decided that the rest of the year is mine, I’m going to read for me and then re-evaluate in the new year.

Do you feel the same?

Do you sign up for arcs with PR companies?

Do you have will power?! Tell me how you cope with this (or how to get some self control!)
