Books I read in May

I know, I know. This post is kind of late, but I have a good excuse! My son got a stomach flu and he passed it on to me, so I’ve been sick for the past week or so. Now that I’m back to feeling human again, want to know what I read last month? It’s a fairly long list. I guess I was lucky to find so many great books this time 🙂

Chasing the rainbow- Kade Boehme

This is the kind of book you go to when you need sweet and reassuring. There’s very little angst, it’s funny, sexy, fluffy, all things everyone needs, which means you NEED this book! But it’s not only that. This book is also real. There’s no perfect character, no perfect dialogue, no perfect relationship.
I loved Jody. He’s gentle but not to the point that he lets others walk all over him. Jody knows what he wants and sticks to it even if it means he might not get the guy he wants, and it pays in the end.
Bobby…yes, I loved him too. He has to decide if Jody is worth coming out to his other, and we see him grow until he takes his decision and never looks back.
These two together? Adorable and sexy!
And a special mention goes to Carlo, Bobby’s brother, because he reminded me soooo much of my husband. Kade really nailed the Italian man here!

Latakia- J.F. Smith

This is a military romance. One of the characters is a SEAL, and it was interesting to see how Matt and Travis dealt with the DADT. I really loved this one (and Petey-gotta love Petey)!

Men of Honor series- S.E. Jakes

Military men and BDSM. Really good series if you like that kind of things 🙂

In the Absence of Light- Adrienne Wilder

I loved, loved this one so much I bought the paperback too. One of the main characters, Morgan, is autistic, and the way he sees the world is incredibly beautiful and so different from what we see. Even if he is autistic, he’s not disabled, far from it. He lives alone, has a job, and he lives a full life. His ‘disability’ is a part of him, but it takes second plan behind his sense of humor and his personality. The other half of the couple, Grant, is hesitant in the beginning, but Morgan quickly puts him in his place. I highly recommend this one!

Hard Hats series- the first books is by Kade Boehme and Piper Vaughn, the second one only Piper Vaughn

Both authors are automatic buys for me, so when I saw they’d written a book together I just had to have it. Niehter book deceived. The first one has a 16 years gap bewteen the two MCs (one is the best friend’s father of the other), while the other is about childhood enemies turn lovers. Loved both!

The Summer House- RJ Scott

I proofread this one for the author. Any book that makes me cry is a hit for me, so this one deserved my 5 stars. A veterinarian and a noble playboy, a small English town? Right up my alley! they both have a lot to work on, but it’ll be worth it, believe me.

  1. I really need to read In the Absence of Light. It’s high on my TBR, but I can never seem to pull the trigger cause something else catches my eye. I hear AMAZING things about it. I loved Chasing the Rainbow, The Hard Hat series, and Latakia. Glad you enjoyed. You picked some winners for May 🙂
