Balanço Mensal (Julho 2017)

Fonte
Para variar, já vem atrasado, mas aqui fica o balanço de Julho. Voltei a ler quatro livros: Riskier Business de Tessa Bailey, The Hook Up de Tawna Fenske, O Último Minuto de Sandra Brown e Aquele Beijo de Julia Quinn.


Foram todos leituras bastante boas, mas O Último Minuto e Aquele Beijo foram definitivamente os melhores.


Comprei o primeiro numa promoção da Wook e os outros cinco na Amazon:

Blog Tour: THE HOOK UP by Tawna Fenske

Meet the Author:

When Tawna Fenske finished her English lit degree at 22, she celebrated by filling a giant trash bag full of romance novels and dragging it everywhere until she’d read them all. Now she’s a RITA-nominated, USA Today bestselling author who writes humorous fiction, risqué romance, and heartwarming love stories with a quirky twist. Publishers Weekly has praised Tawna’s offbeat romances with multiple starred reviews and noted, “There’s something wonderfully relaxing about being immersed in a story filled with over-the-top characters in undeniably relatable situations. Heartache and humor go hand in hand.”

Tawna lives in Bend, Oregon, with her husband, stepkids, and a menagerie of ill-behaved pets. She loves hiking, snowshoeing, standup paddleboarding, and inventing excuses to sip wine on her back porch. She can peel a banana with her toes and loses an average of twenty pairs of eyeglasses per year. To find out more about Tawna and her books, visit www.tawnafenske.com.

About the Book:


Ellie Sanders is over the fairytale, thank you very much. Content with her booming career as a purveyor of Madame Butterfly pleasure aids, she doesn’t need a man for anything—except maybe marketing tips. And, okay, a few fun nights with something that doesn’t require batteries.

Love, marriage, and family aren’t in the cards for Tyler Hendrix. Period. The Navy helped Ty put his tumultuous childhood behind him, but when a sexy single mom walks through the First Impressions door looking to take her business to the next level, he feels his carefully constructed “never-get-attached” walls crack.

As Ty and Ellie maneuver through a minefield of wardrobe malfunctions, plumbing mishaps, and the world’s most awkward accidental dirty talk, discovering they have more in common than scorching sexual attraction threatens to crumble Ty’s walls for good…

Opinião: "Razzmatazz"

Autor: Patricia Burroughs
Editor: Book View Café
Edição/reimpressão: Janeiro de 2014
ASIN: B00HCQLZTA
Páginas: 192
Origem: Recebido em troca de uma opinião sincera

Sinopse: When small town girl Kennie Sue Ledbetter wakes up in a Reno hotel between two guys in rumpled tuxedos, she thinks things can’t get any worse.

When she steps on the wedding bouquet and sees the ring on her finger, she knows things can’t get any worse.

But then she finds out she’s married to the guy who won her in a coin-toss in front of the wedding chapel, and ‘worse’ has a name and a face:

Alexander Carruthers, the gorgeous silver-tongued devil who believes in love at first sight, in fate, and in doing whatever it takes to keep her—

Even if that means following her back to Texas and letting all the good people in Tahoka Springs know what she did on her summer vacation.

He’s Lear jets and high society charity balls.

She’s Ford Pintos and rodeos.

She won’t fit into his world and he sure won’t fit into hers.

This spells disaster—calamitous, embarrassing, tempting-as-sin disaster….

Can true love really hinge on the toss of a coin?

Balanço Mensal (Junho 2017)

Já vem atrasado, mas aqui fica o balanço de Junho. Li The Scandalous Love of a Duke de Jane Lark, Hold Me de Susan Mallery, The Betrayed de Heather Graham e Scotsmen Prefer Blondes de Sara Ramsey.


Foram todos leituras bastante boas, mas The Betrayed ficou aquém dos outros.


Perdi um bocadinho a cabeça com as aquisições, mas foi um mês cheio de promoções...

Começando pelos que comprei na Feira do Livro de Lisboa (e este ano esqueci-me de fazer o post respectivo...):

Fui no primeiro Domingo (dia 4) e comprei  sete livros (falta na foto o Os Bridgerton Felizes Para Sempre da Julia Quinn que foi oferecido à minha mãe): Flores do Afonso Cruz que era livro do dia na Penguin Random House (e que pena tive de não ter ficado para a sessão de autógrafos...); na Leya aproveitei a promoção de Leve 4, Pague 3 para completar algumas séries e comprei O Prazer da Nicole Jordan, O Plano de Miss Fairbourne da Madeline Hunter, Mistério na Cornualha da Liz Fenwick e trouxe Casamento de Conveniência da Jennifer Probst gratuito; e terminei na Topseller com Escrito na Água da Paula Hawkins, a única novidade que comprei porque o quero ler em breve.

E aproveitei uma série de promoções para reabastecer o meu Kindle com os seguintes livrinhos:
