June 2017 ~ Monthly Wrap Up ~ 17 Titles

Hi Everyone! 😊🌴🌸💗

Well since technically it’s July and summer is in full swing, I apologize for such a late posting of my June wrap up.  June was so busy and by the time school ended, we left for vacation and I was away for two weeks.  Being away was great however it put me behind in reading, reviewing and blogging.  So here I am trying to catch up.

I was only able to read 17 books this month because of everything I had going on.  And I’m not complaining because any more than that, I would not have been able to handle.  I totally blame social media.  I am on there for several hours every day posting releases, reviews and pimping.  I love it though so I guess I’ll have to take some time and organize myself better.

So of the 17 books I read this month, 12 of them were 5 star rated by me.  The remaining 5 books averaged 4 stars!  All in all it was a pleasurable month for reading.  As is usual there were a few standouts which I’ll add to the bottom of this post along with my favorite covers.

In addition to this blog, all my reviews can be found on the following platforms: Goodreads/Justlovemybooks

and Amazon/Christine Indriolo

Oh and you can find me on Instagram @justlovemybooks

Well I guess I’ll be seeing you soon since we’re more than halfway through July, lol. 🌹

Short, sexy and to the point…

Hanna Mitchell hopped on the first thing smoking out of Blue Falls the second she graduated high school. Overcome with the need to travel and sow her wild oats, she’s spent the better part of seven years living and working abroad. Enjoying new places and new experiences whenever it strikes her fancy. When her latest fun loving Irish boyfriend breaks things off, Hanna begins to realize just how restless she’s been feeling lately and suddenly she longs for home. Her sister Mona and her husband are heading out of town for a few weeks and need a house sitter. Perfect.

Brent Doyle has seen a long list of interesting things while on duty as a highway patrol officer for the Blue Falls Sheriff’s department but nothing could have prepared him for the day he pulls over a scantily clad Hanna. The girl he spent most of his childhood teasing mercilessly has grown up into a beautiful woman. One look at her and it becomes his personal mission to talk her out of her clothes and into his bed.

As it often happens, what begins as a simple arrangement soon becomes more than either party anticipated. Can Hanna learn to let go of the past and trust in herself? Is Brent willing to wait for the woman who has unexpectedly captured his heart?

Sam Elliot, a pair of handcuffs and at least one Tolkien reference help guide this unlikely couple toward their happily ever after.
