July Reading Challenges … Week 1 Update

As you will recall I am taking on 4 reading challenges this month

I started the month with the July Olympics Challenge I read the following 5 books.

  1. Host Country About Last Night Ruthie Knox –
  2. Opening Ceremonies Taking a Shot Jaci Burton – Hot Hockey Player and a Punk Bar Tender (who happens to be the Sister of a NFL Quarterback and a MLB Baseball Player) who wants nothing to do with a sports figure.
  3. Events Ride with Me Ruthie Knox –
  4. Medal Ceremony Saving Grace JM Hill
  5. Go Home Team Heaven, Texas Susan Elizabeth Phillips

I gave all of them 4* except Saving Grace.  I gave it 3.5*.  Honestly it was a very sweet book, but a little too sweet for me.  Go figure 🙂

After I finished the Olympics Challenge (I was the first of the group to finish) I started the Over in a Flash Challenge.  That one was only 3 books and only took about 2 days to finish.

  1. Color Easy Webber, Tammara * – Bad Boy, Good Girl, College Love, need I say more? 5*
  2. Holiday Theme (Military Character)Because of You (Coming Home #1) Scott, Jessica * – a very sweet tale of overcoming adversity and finding love when you feel less than perfect.  Actually come to think of it the heroine of both this and Breaking Free had overcome disfiguring pasts to find love with Hot Miltary Men.  In this case a Soldier. 4*
  3. Items (moon)Breaking Free Reasor, Teresa J. * – A SEAL finds the love he wasn’t looking for with the girl that should be off limits, while one of his men (who happens to be her brother) lays in a coma. 4*

I have started the 3rd Challenge – Spell it out

F – Flat Out Sexy Erin McCarthy – 4* Hot Race car drive, older widowed woman, 2 sweet kids
R – Rock Hard Cunning, Olivia
E – Erin McCarthy Hard and Fast
E – Easy Tammara Webb – 5* (same as the one in the Over in a Flash Challenge)
D – Dane, Lauren Giving Chase
O – Olivia Cunning Backstage Pass
M – McGuire, Jamie  Beautiful Disaster – 5* Super bad boy, Wanna be Good girl, Frat boys, parties, sparks, fights, love, hate, college, angst… all the makings of a great love story.

My star rating are based on how much I enjoyed the story mostly.  If there are excessive technical issues that will have and effect, however.

About BrandilynRC

Brandilyn is a middle-aged (When the hell did that happen?) stay-at-home mom to 3 beautiful children (of course she is biased). She started reading M/M Romance and Gay fiction in early 2012 and was quickly hooked. In her first 18 months as a M/M Romance fan, she read over 900 titles in the genre (not counting re-reads), ranging from shorts to epic novels. She reads across all tropes within the Gay Fiction genre…. except Regency, she has never found a love for Regency. A native Texan she finds Texas to the be almost perfect… except for one thing, their treatment of the GLBTQ community. This blog is her brain child and she is happy to welcome some fellow GLBTQ supporters to review here and help promote equality (oh and of course fangirl/fanboy over their favorite authors and works).
