September Reading

This reading wrap-up is going to be a lot shorter than the others from the past few months. The reason being: I'm writing a book and I'm having to limit my reading time to focus on my own work. I read 6 books in September and 4 of them were less than 100 pages for the sole purpose of them being quick reads. There was a sprinkle of old and "new to me" authors (mostly favs) in the line up and all of the books were good reads. Alexandria Warren, Rilzy Adams, and Nicole Falls are in my Top Ten list of 1-Click authors no matter what they write. They were also the first three reads I consumed in September. "New to Me" authors D. Rose and Dandridge Monroe were the last but not least of the list. In fact, I'm probably going to buy just about all of Dandridge Monroe's catalog. I'm not a paranormal fans, so that would be the only reason I don't buy those from her. With that being said, let's get into this reading list.



1. Uncovered Truths by Alexandra Warren is a second chance romance about two people who started off as friends with benefits/co-workers and when things looked like they were going into the feelings category, there was a full stop on the heroine's side. After some time has passed, they cross paths at the store and he invites her to a party and sis gets stuck at his house by a storm. The melodrama between those two had me cracking up. If you are looking for a short read from a great author, this is a good option.



2. Love in the Time of Corona by Rilzy Adams is also a second chance romance but it could also be considered enemies to lovers. lol I say that because the main characters are going through a divorce when the book takes place. Although, I wasn't too thrilled about the theme of corona being a component of the subject matter but the book was still nice. I've enjoyed everything I've read by Rilzy, so I wasn't turned off completely by conversation of the virus. It was hardly important in the book... to me anyway. It was the catalyst for the characters being stuck in the same space for long term, which caused them to have to actually deal with the issues that caused her to want a divorce in the first place.


3. Thirst by Nicole Falls is a friends to lovers/enemies to lovers romance so to speak. It's a friends to lovers because the main characters are friends. However, at the beginning of the book, they are not at a good place in their relationship. By the end though, HOT AND HEAVY. Thirst is the 2nd book in The Brooks Brothers duality and baby brother Kenyon is just as sexy as his big brother from Hunger that I read in August. I enjoyed everything about this short. The tension, the sex, the FIGHTS. It was all great entertainment in the form of words.


4. Together Again by D. Rose is a second chance/friends to lovers novelette about 2 friends who lost contact with each other as teenagers and reconnected by surprise by running into each other at the club, the one he owns. Their reconnection was nice and easy. Of course there had to be an antagonist in the book: her child's father. But those types never win in the end.





5. Love in One Night by Dandridge Monroe is a love at first sight romance. It wasn't a HEA though. Hell, by the end of the book, we still didn't even know what her real name was. But Adonis and Heaven were great nicknames for this short read. They were just supposed to have a great one night stand and they walked away with their hearts handed over to the other. The sex was HOT AF and I was low-key mad it was a short read for a second. lol




6. Midas' Touch is also by Dandridge Monroe. As a matter of fact, it's basically the sequel to Love in One Night, which I was very excited to see we weren't left hanging about these sexy characters. And when I say this sequel gave me much more than I could have asked for. The arguments, torture, and shoot outs made it less of a romance, but it made their back stories even more interesting. That quick plot twist towards the end of the book had me clapping hands and talking cash trash. Reading this book let me know I needed to go back and read all the other series by Dandridge since all the friends mentioned in this one has their own books and hero and heroine are mentioned (by name or characteristics) in more than one of their friends' stories. I must say, though, I think my favorites in this book were his mother and best friend Adam. They had me cracking up the whole book. Can't wait to read about the others now.
