WWW Wednesday: May 30th, 2018

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Taking on a World of Wars. So here what I have read/are reading/will be reading. Also, I will let y’all know what has gone on in my life this past week.

What has been going on in my life:

I have gotten all confused with the long weekend. Plus, I am aggravated right now, so I am going to keep things very short. It has rained almost every single day since Saturday. And it looks like rain until at least Friday (thank you TS Alberto). On the kid front, this is the last week of school for Miss R. Miss B. and Mr. Z have EOG’s this week. ELA today, math tomorrow. Then Miss. B has science and social studies EOG next Tuesday and Wednesday.

Miss. R finishes up her T-Ball season on Thursday with an end of season party on Saturday. Miss. B is going to Carowinds for a concert, which she will be playing in (she plays the trumpet). Then she will be spending the rest of the day at the park. BK, my SO, is going as a chaperone. Mr. Z will be going with me to Miss. R’s party on Saturday.

Now, onto the real reason I started this post (LOL):

What am I currently reading:

Believe Me

In this twisty psychological thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of The Girl Before, an actress plays both sides of a murder investigation.

A struggling actor, a Brit in America without a green card, Claire needs work and money to survive. Then she gets both. But nothing like she expected.

Claire agrees to become a decoy for a firm of divorce lawyers. Hired to entrap straying husbands, she must catch them on tape with their seductive propositions. The rules? Never hit on the mark directly. Make it clear you’re available, but he has to proposition you, not the other way around. The firm is after evidence, not coercion. The innocent have nothing to hide.

Then the game changes.

When the wife of one of Claire’s targets is violently murdered, the cops are sure the husband is to blame. Desperate to catch him before he kills again, they enlist Claire to lure him into a confession.

Claire can do this. She’s brilliant at assuming a voice and an identity. For a woman who’s mastered the art of manipulation, how difficult could it be to tempt a killer into a trap? But who is the decoy . . . and who is the prey?

I started this last night and so far I like it. I am hoping that the rest of the book lives up to my internal hype!!


What did I recently finish:

Playing Hurt:

Playing Hurt (Aces Hockey, #6)

He’s playing hurt. She’s laying low. And they’re both flirting with disaster.
 
“Kelly Jamieson is my go-to author for hockey romance.”—Jami Davenport
 
Chase: The last thing I’d ever want to do is let my team down. After overcoming my bad-boy reputation, I was dominating on the ice. But things aren’t going so well this season, and even my parents think I’m partying again. Now I’m really worried about my career. The only bright spot in my life is the Twitter flirtation I’ve struck up with pop princess Jordyn Banks. Turns out she’s a huge hockey fan—and she’s willing to wager a date on her favorite team. . . .

Jordyn: Even though I’m an L.A. fan now, I’ve always had a soft spot for the Aces, since I grew up in Chicago. Then I lose a bet to Chase Hartman, and suddenly I’m up close and personal with a pro athlete who’s anything but soft. Not only is Chase the hottest guy I’ve ever met, he’s secretly super sweet. As if I had time for a relationship . . . yeah, right. But when I suddenly have nothing but time on my hands, he’s the only one who understands. Now, with both of our careers at stake, Chase is tempting me to put my heart on the line too.

Kelly Jamieson’s USA Today bestselling Aces Hockey series can be read together or separately:
MAJOR MISCONDUCT
OFF LIMITS
ICING
TOP SHELF
BACK CHECK
SLAP SHOT
PLAYING HURT
 
Don’t miss any of Kelly’s alluring reads:
The Bayard Hockey series: SHUT OUT | CROSS CHECK
The Last Shot series: BODY SHOT | HOT SHOT | LONG SHOT
The standalone novel: DANCING IN THE RAIN

I liked the book, even if I thought the plot was a little blah. Playing Hurt will not be published until July 17th, so be on the lookout for my review then.


What I am reading next:

The Cyprus PapersBroken Promise (Sons of Broad #3)Mirrored Kingdoms: The Shadow's QuestOne for the Rogue (Studies in Scandal, #4)

The Cyprus Papers: This was a book I got when I went on a NetGalley Read Now binge. I hope that I like it!!

Broken Promise: I had reviewed Darkest Night a couple of months back and thought it was OK. So, when the publisher approached me to review this book, I said OK. I wanted to know if the series got better or if it went downhill.

Mirrored Kingdom: The Shadow’s Quest: The author approached me to review this book. I was intrigued by the blurb, so I accepted. I hope that it is as good as the blurb.

One for the Rogue: A Regency romance. I have a weakness for them. The publisher feeds my weakness by approaching me and asking me to review them…lol. I hope that I like it (I should but I feel the need to say that…lol)


So that’s it. Be on the lookout for the reviews of all these books in the near future.

Have you read any of these books? Why or why not?
