Stacking The Shelvesl_thumb2Hosted by Tynga’s Reviews

Welcome back to Stacking the Shelves, a regular meme hosted by Tynga at Tynga’s Reviews. Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the latest books you have added to your shelves, physical or virtual.  This means you can include books you buy in store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts, and of course e-books! Here is my haul from this week.

Netgalley approved my request for Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen. I haven’t read the first book – The Queen of the Tearling – yet, so I picked that up this week, too, from Audible.

From Amazon I purchased One Last Kiss and One More Kiss by Susan Ward, and later in the week grabbed her The Girl on the Half Shell, which was free. I’m reading the later books in these series out of order, so thought it was about time I bought the earlier books.

Keep an eye out for my reviews of these in coming weeks. So what new books did you pick up this week? Let me know in the comments.

Sexy Snippets #2: The Girl of Tokens and Tears by Susan Ward

30 Apr

sexysnippetsI’ve been reading a lot of YA stuff lately and haven’t been able to catch up with this meme, but I thought it was about time we had a Sexy Snippet. This meme is hosted by Crystal from one of my favourite blog sites, Reading Between the Wines, for the 18+ crowd. Want to join in, too? Just pop over to her site and grab the button, post a sexy paragraph or two from your current read, and share the author and title so other participants can add the book to their TBR list if they like, and then leave a comment with a link to your post. Can you feel it getting hot in here?

My read this week is The Girl of Tokens and Tears by Susan Ward. It’s the second book in her Half Shell series, the third book of which, The Girl of Diamonds and Rust, was released last weekend. I’ll be reviewing them both soon.

“Quick,” I whisper, biting my lower lip.

He laughs. He lifts his arm from his face. His eyes are smiling when he looks at me. “It’s been a long time. I haven’t been with anyone since my ex.”

I curl into his sex-damp flesh, laying my cheek on his chest. His skin feels good against my flesh. I rub my nose against him. I even like the smell of Neil.

“How long ago was that?” I ask.

“Six months.”

My eyes widen. “You haven’t had sex in six months?”

“Nope.” He holds up his hand. “All these calluses are not only from playing guitar.”

Lol, there’s nothing like a sexy man with a sense of humour. What about you? What are you reading at the moment? Leave a comment below or link up HERE to follow the meme.
