What Brooke Read 4/12/19
Hey, hey, it's Friday!
Okay, I'm being a little odd today. Completely normal, I promise.
This week, I have four books for you! So, let's dive in!
The first read I have for you is A Place in the Sun by R.S. Grey. I somehow missed a rom-com by her. I liked this story, but not as much as some of her others. The humor wasn't overly powerful in this story but it was great nevertheless.
When her mother’s incessant matchmaking hits an all-time high, Georgie Archibald does what any sensible woman would do: she flees the country.
Seeking refuge in the picturesque seaside village of Vernazza, Italy, Georgie’s only plan is to lie low, gorge herself on gelato, and let the wine and waves wash her troubles away... that is until she wakes up in a bed that belongs to the most romantic-looking man she’s ever seen.
After going out of his way to rescue her, the former London financier turned mysterious recluse makes it clear that despite acting as her white knight, he has no plans to co-star in her fairytale.
But Georgie isn’t asking for his heart—she’s merely intrigued.
After all, Gianluca isn’t just gorgeous—tall and tan from days spent in the sun—his touch sets her world on fire. With him, Georgie experiences the most intoxicating passion she’s ever known, and it only takes a few steamy nights for her to realize that sometimes running away from trouble is the best way to find it.
Next up is Saint (Mercy 2) by JB Salsbury. I think I said this with Ghostgirl, but I love JB's fighter books and this story was a little different. BUT, it was a great read.
Milo sold his soul to the devil to save an angel.
Now he’s after revenge.
There are worse prisons than the lush estate of a notorious drug smuggler in Mexico. Mercy lives out her days alone and hidden from the world, but her sleep is riddled with nightmares of the muti and all the boys and girls just like her who weren’t lucky enough to get away.
If the people who kept her as a child are in Mexico, is it possible she could find them?
What starts as vigilante justice unravels a web of human trafficking deeper and darker than Milo and Mercy could’ve imagined. When she comes face-to-face with the people she once considered family, she proves she is far from the Angel they raised her to be.

Racer, son of Remington Tate. Yes, the son of Riptide. I drooled over Remy in Real, Mine, and Remy. Unfortunately, I wasn't as drawn to Racer as I was his father. It was great getting to see inside his head when we didn't get that in Real with Remy but the magic wasn't the same. Maybe it was just me. If you read it, you'll have to let me know your thoughts.
A bad boy with something to prove.
A woman with a mission.
The race of their lives.
The love of a lifetime.
I don’t think his parents expected him to live up to his name—Racer Tate—but once he felt the adrenaline rush behind the wheel, he was addicted.
He's the fastest, fiercest driver around.
Scouting new talent brings me to his doorstep...
but his smile sends me to my knees.
The sexy, mysterious Racer Tate is not the kind of man a girl like me falls for. He's secretive, reckless, elusive. But his proximity pushes me beyond reason, and his kiss....
This is our last chance to win, and he is our only hope. I'm supposed to watch him—make sure he doesn't get into trouble. But it's an impossible task. And now the one in heart wrenching, toe-curling, soul-crushing trouble is me. Because when your heart belongs to someone, their truths become your own, and their secrets become your salvation...or your curse.
He says he wants me. He says I'm the One. But he also thinks he'll break my heart, one piece at a time until it's gone.

No, but most certainly not least, Colel by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff! I absolutely love Mimi Jean's worlds. WOW! That is the first thought I had after finishing Colel. I have fallen in love with Mimi Jean's Immortals from the very beginning and as more come out I am never disappointed. I wasn't quite sure what kind of wild ride I was in for with the Mistress of Bees and I'm thrilled to say that I loved every bee-autiful moment of this book! I couldn't put it down, needing to know more, craved it until the story to the end. This book, by far, is my favorite of the series!
This book contains foul language, gratuitous sex against a truck, outrageously rude immortal warriors in leather pants, snow, pigheaded gods, a sexually frustrated goddess, a very hot and hunky florist guy with a bad attitude and a big secret, Brutus bubble baths, a sneaky invisible unicorn, unrequited love, bees, bees, and more bees, and chocolates.
SOMETIMES LOVE BITES AND SOMETIMES IT STINGS.
Colel, the Goddess of Bees, has been looking for Mr. Right for over seventy thousand years. So when she meets the hunky owner of a small-town flower shop and explodes with flutters and tingles, she’s almost certain that he’s the one.
Only two problems: her tiny black-and-yellow army suddenly won’t let her anywhere near him, and…is that a freaking epinephrine pen in the fridge? “Dear gods! He’s allergic to bees? Say it isn’t so.”
If simply dating the guy will kill him, how will she ever know for sure if he’s really the one?
Colel has a solution, but it’s drastic. Even for her. And what if he says no?
