What Deanna Read #40: May 2019

My apologies for being slack this week. I know, I know. This post is late. So sorry. I have no excuse. I'm still enjoying being home and not working my butt off so I'm taking a lot of time to chill out. Steve and I are also on a health kick and we are trying to get our health back which really suffered while we were away and working so hard. Lots of time spent exercising. Geez, why can't getting healthy and losing weight require less effort? The lazy person in me protests!!

Here's what I read for the month.

Since I had a bit more time this month I took a few more chances with my reading choices. A few duds in the mix and a few more sort of average reads but generally a good reading month after all.

Sean by Serena Akeroyd is the ninth book in the Quintessence series, and the fourth book in the Quintessence Sequel. Amazing book. This can't be read as a standalone. You need to read the series from the beginning but it's one of my favorite series. Sean was so raw, so eomtional. What a ride! And bonus crossover with the Kingdom of Veronia series where we get to catch up with Perry again.

Amanda Quick had a new book out with Tightrope, her third in the Burning Cove series. As usual, Ms Quick hits it out of the park. This was an interesting one for me because I was not excited about it in the beginning. I struggled with the heroine but by the end, I was a total convert. This book is brilliant.

A few new to me authors which I enjoyed and will likely seek more of eventually. Rogue and Conquering Their Mate by Piper Stone. These books have somewhat dark themes with very dominant men and lots of spanking. They can be somewhat harsh at times. Viking's Claim by Madison Faye was fun, silly, and sexy, and Quadruple Duty by Krista Wolf had All. The. Sex. which fit my mood at the time.

That's it from me. What did you read for this last month? Do leave a comment and let me know.

Stay tuned for Helen's books next.

    1. Great list this month, Gill. A few I've read too so that's always good to see. I am so looking forward to the House of Rone but I'm behind. I need to read Imperator still. What did you think of Under Fyre?

    2. I loved it. I liked how it resonated with the state of the world today

    3. Oh, I'm glad you did. I struggled with the whole enemies to lovers thing, and all the lying humans.
