Hello and Welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday,
This week’s topic is a Love Freebie,
Normally, I would share my top 10 favorite ships or favorite romances but I haven’t exactly been in lovey-dovey mode lately. Plus, I’m fairly certain you all already know them by now. So, instead, I’ll talk about some books I’ve read recently that happened to have romance in it or be romances period. And away we go,
The Princess of Chaos. This is the sequel to The Queen of Carnage, Candice Wright’s newest series about Motorcycle Clubs or MCs. It focuses on our main character Megan who aside from being brave af and exceptionally badass also happens to be deaf. Seriously, guys, I love this girl so much. She takes absolutely no shit and is just amazing. Her love interests? They are also great. And of the three, I’m not sure I really have a favorite. Viper is just a dick in the best way, his personality is always clashing with Megan’s. Grim is such a teddybear underneath everything and Zero is hilarious. I just adore them all and their friendship with each other and just the relationship they all have with Megan together and separately as well. If you’re into RH or the idea of RH, I recommend this book to you incredibly highly.
A Redbird Christmas. This is the second Fannie Flagg book I have ever read and it was lovely. So many different kinds of love happen in this book and to a guy who goes to this wonderful place thinking he’s going to be spending the rest of his now numbered days there. First, he falls in love with the town, then the child, and without even realizing it he falls in love with the woman who wasn’t even supposed to be on the market. I just adored how sweet the story was and how everyone was so willing to come together for the little girl, Patsy. But let’s be real here, the romance was a bonus and my heart of hearts belongs to Jack, the redbird.
Shadowshaper. This was another book where the romance isn’t quite at the forefront, but it is there and while I don’t quite trust the male love interest- I’m sure there are others who adore him. In his defense though, Robbie is very interesting with his ancestral tattoos, art skills, and smooth demeanor. I just don’t trust him yet.
For the Win. I realize that I just talked about this book in an earlier blog post but I still really adore it. Raine is one of the most relatable heroines I’ve come across and the tension she has with the male love interest, Zac Hunter, in this book is off the charts. There are so many amazingly intense moments between the two in this short story that it’s hard to pick a true favorite scene. I just might have to go with the end scene though when they finally, officially got together.
Color Outside the Lines. This anthology was all about ships and romance. If I had to pick a favorite though it would be Hlee and Argus in Starlight and Moondust by Lori M. Lee or Hades and Parvani in Death and the Maiden by Tara Sim. I love the mythological elements of both stories and really enjoyed the female Hades.
Heartless. I did enjoy the romance in Heartless, I just didn’t find myself as invested in the romance being the reason behind the Red Queen becoming evil. I almost wish it had been an alternate reality story where we saw what could’ve happened had she decided to take fate into her own hands. Alas, I know it was an origin story.
November 9. This was my first Colleen Hoover read and it might not be the last. I found the concept intriguing and the relationship between the two main characters, really lovely. Sure, there were parts I found uncalled for but in the end, I did really enjoy it quite a bit. Oh, and before I forget, the plot twist was a bit overdone, at least by the time I’d gotten around to reading but the romance was pretty great.
It’s only 7 books but 7 is more than 0 so I’m counting it as a win.
Until next time,
