Man Hands (Man Hands #1) by Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby

Whenever there's a new book by Sarina I get overly excited. It doesn't matter what the book is about, mostly because I don't read any snippets or the synopsis before I start the book - why bother? With this one it was the same even if it's co-written (with an author I haven't read before) but as I started reading this book I've realized it's A LOT different than what I'm used to reading by her. 

You know the phrase - "It's not you, it's me"? It's exactly how I would describe my feelings towards this book. This is not what I expected and mostly it's a genre I very rarely enjoy. If I had to describe this book in less than a sentence I'd call it - 'Young Adult with mature content'. I have very little to no patience for "kids" in my books, it doesn't matter if they are the MCs or if they're literal kids who take a lot of page space. I want mature characters or at the least what we call now "New Adult". I just find I can't relate to younger characters. Their life choices and the way they react to everything around them is truly exhausting to me.

December 2017 Reading List

Last month have been INCREDIBLE, on the beginning of November I went to the World Dog Show in Leipzig Germany and not only was it an amazing experience I also witnessed something that doesn't happen often.. A Great Dane won the Best In Show out of 25,000 dogs! I can't describe how it made me feel and how excited and proud I was and actually still am! 

The month continued with too many things on my schedule and actually I'm not sure this month would be any different. It's the ending of the year and too many things need my attention and yet I DO hope I'll have time to read because that's exactly the thing that grounds me and helps me relax and "defrag" as I like to call it.

This month there are SO MANY NEW RELEASES! First there's a release from the ending of last month I haven't gotten around to - 
the new and final novel in the THIRDS series by Charlie Cochet which is my absolute favorite PNR/UF series (the only reason I'm not upset about it is the TIN spinoff is coming right after!). There's a new funny contemporary by Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby (I don't know her but I'll be happy to :)). Katy Regnery have TWO short novellas, though one was previously released in an Anthology. Amy Lane has a new Contemporary novel and one which was recently released and haven't gotten around to it. There's also a new in the Porthkennack by Garrett Leigh who is always a treat to read. Last but not least Christina Lee and Felice Stevens have a sneek new MMM novel together! I'm truly interested to see how this one works out. Well maybe there's another one actually - a new series by Lara adrian - but I have a feeling it's won't be released this month since she hasn't released the previous Midnight Breed novel.. we'll see..

I feel like a kid in a candy store! Not sure how I'm going to pick and chose which I start reading first! and that's not all! There's also a few more books by Mary Calmes as I have most months (until I finish ALL her published work.. ;)), another novel by Amy Lane (beside the two new ones I mean) and one by Cari Z since I want to finish HER book list as well! 

That's a lot, mostly overwhelming with the new releases, I hope THESE I'll actually get to..

Goodnight My Angel (Angel Enterprises #2) by Sue Brown

I really enjoyed this one though I was a bit disappointed that the story finished with a cliff hanger concerning the suspense part of the story. Unlike the previous one, this one was mainly told from Cal's POV which was GREAT. I felt I needed to get to know him better since in the previous one he felt quite mysterious. There is still A LOT for us to discover (about his past) but I actually really liked how we got to know both Cal and Josh a little at a time as their relationship builds up around the suspense. If you haven't read the first one please don't continue reading this review (to prevent reading of spoilers) or rather, go ahead and grab the first one - it's AMAZING.
