1 stars-- Good Girls Don't Date Rock Stars (Rock Canyon, Idaho #2) by Codi Gary

It's not really a good sign when you finish a book and your first thought is "thank fuck this one is finally over" Good Girls Don't Date Rock Stars was retched and all because of that supposed "good girl" heroine. Oh and that "rock star" is a country musician.
The Gist: Gemma opted to hide the fact Travis had a kid. For 10 years. An accidental run in in Vegas, though, led to him finding out...but not from her. Oh no. She was going to fuck him for a weekend and then go on with her life with him none the wiser. Even after she accidentally married him she was gonna keep hiding that kid and just get it annulled.

[memes] Favorite Hero Names? + my bookish happenings

I wanted to meme. And only had one weekly post to do it. So there's a whole lotta memeage happening in this post. You might have to scroll down a bit to get the one you're looking for. 😸

In herd/house/blog news. It's been a long stressful week but we're hanging in there. I'm still trying to find a new SUV and then all the things happened. Two of the herd babes are pretty sick so we've had vet appointments out the nose, emergency surgery and now one of them tube feeding every 2 hours round the clock. [ETA we're now up to every 4 hours feeding after our vet visit this morning! Yay!]

So...blogging has been on the back burner and so has pretty much everything else. The girls are hanging in there, though. They are such dang troopers. I'm just tired. But we're doing okay :) And I've gotten a lot of reading done because of all the wait and see and hover and vet visits. lol

  • Bluegrass State of Mind was fun. A horse racing farm and the Kentucky Derby. A little suspense. It did need some editing, though.
  • A Virgin River Christmas is one of my all time favorites and a re-read. Damn good 2nd time around, too. Beauty and the Beast, a heroine in search of her husband's rescuer (and best friend) a year after he passed away. It gives ALL the feels.
  • And I'm binge reading the second half of Lucky Harbor by Jill Shalvis. I LOVED the first 6 but then for some reason couldn't get myself to finish the last 6. So now I am. And I'm a happy reader girl. lol

I started this one yesterday and so far so good! The heroine is renovating an old bookstore. yay!

I picked up a few freebies.

Melt for You (Slow Burn #2) by J.T. Geissinger

Sometimes it's function over pretty. With two sick herd babes I needed a time tracker for meds/feedings and I didn't have time or desire to do an artistic layout so plain and simple and doing it's job. Yay bujo!

4. Adam
5. Nathan(iel)/Nate
6. Ian
7. Luke
8. Sawyer
9. Benjamin/Ben/Bennett
10. Ranger

Question: What were your worst movies based off of books?
A: I don't watch too many adaptations. The ones recently have been via PassionFlix and man those are really not fabulous. I've been fairly disappointed in them so far.

[3.5 stars] Melt for You (Slow Burn #2) by J.T. Geissinger

Melt for You. Well. It was special. lol

Early on? Well I was going honey if you need to go on a stabbing spree I will help you hide the bodies. I WILL HELP YOU HIDE THE BODIES! Because seriously everyone but the heroine and her deaf cat were just begging for it. Lordy!
The Gist: An obnoxious neighbor who likes to prance around half nekkid and blast foul rap music vs a buttoned up, suppressed book editor who just wants some peace and quiet. Oh yeah. The battle is on between this unlikely duo and...fireworks!

Aaaand there are BOOK RELEASES & SALES!

Just a quick note then books! Things are crazy here. Two herd babes are having medical issues and one is requiring round the clock every 2 hours tube feeding. So I'm behind on blog visits and have rescheduled a lot of posts that were ready to go for next month so I have a little more quiet here. We're hanging in there just a bit pressed for time and sanity. lol

4 stars-- One Night of Scandal (After Hours #2) by Elle Kennedy

Ahhh yes. One Night of Scandal heated things up quite nicely.
The Gist: Reed and Darcy. Well they've found themselves in a scandalous fling after Darcy breaks up with Reed's best friend and, well, they realize they can't be in arms distance of each other without clothes flying. But it's just a fling. They absolutely will not under any circumstances get serious. Just a fling. Just. A. Fling.

4 stars-- The Other Lady Vanishes (Burning Cove #2) by Amanda Quick

It's Amanda Quick. You know it's gonna be fantastic. And it was. It really was.

The Gist: Some seriously shady shit is going down and Adelaide seems to be at the middle of it. Which is how she's found herself escaping from an insane asylum. And jumping straight into all kinds of crazing including a psychic with dire predictions, a hero with "exhausted nerves", spies, blackmail. I mean. There's a lot going on and woo boy it's one wild ride for Adelaide and Jake. Especially when they start kinda maybe having a thing for each other.
