WWW Wednesday - August 19

August 19, 2020


WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words.

The three W’s stand for:

What did you recently finish reading?
What are you currently reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?


I read a fair amount this week. Still not up to my usual number, but still pretty good. I got through a nice mix of ARCs and personal purchases, some I loved and some I liked and none that I hated, which is always great. The books I finished were:


My Fallen Saint by J. Kenner - with thanks to the publisher, I got the chance to delve into this second chance romance and enjoy myself. I only wish it came with more than the one perspective. - releases Sept. 15

Unholy Union by Natasha Knight - it's been a while since I've read anything from this author so I had to sign up for this duet. So far, it's dark but incredibly slow burn. I'm hoping it picks up with the next book. - releases Aug. 25

Disorderly Conduct by Rebecca Zanetti - I was interested in this ARC simply because it was advertised as something different from this author. And since I've read A LOT of her work, from her romantic suspense to her paranormal awesomeness, I wanted to see how this shaped up. It was okay. It was single perspective, which took away from it a bit and the heroine wasn't as lovable as she wanted to be. I'm still going to read the next book though. - Out Now

Kiss Me by LP Lovell - I had read the first two books of this series and seriously loved them. Dark, delicious, deadly. I always meant to get back to this and had purchased this book and let it sit on my kindle. I'm so glad I finally picked it up. It was just as thrilling a story as I remembered and the author did a sweet job of closing this out. - Out Now

Lessons in Corruption by Giana Darling - I've heard such amazing things about this series and it's definitely been recommended to me enough, so I finally took the plunge. No regrets. It's an age gap/student-teacher/forbidden romance featuring an older woman and her student. It was filthy and I enjoyed it overall. It suffered from its single perspective, but I'm reading the next book in the series, which is so much better so YAY! - Out Now

What I'm reading right now:

Welcome to the Dark Side by Giana Darling

Welcome to the Dark Side by Giana Darling - the author actually made this story dual perspective, which already made it better than the first book. Zeus is delicious and at 36 he's the president of The Fallen. Lou is a sweetheart and at 17 she's lived more life than any of her peers. They've been tied together since she was 7 and they were shot with the same bullet. Cancer and danger and death and mayhem couldn't keep them apart.

What I plan to read next:


King's Redemption by Grace Risata - after the author enticed me with the blurb for this book, I said 'yes' to the ARC and I'm really looking forward to this read.

Dark Fairy Tales anthology - I one-clicked this collection because of all the authors involved yeah, but mostly because it's been ages since I've read anything from C.J. Roberts and I NEED this.

HIS Girl by Aria Cole - a bunch of authors came together to write this series and for some reason, this was the book that drew my attention. It doesn't hurt that it's only 60 pages and I got it for free. Can't really go wrong there, right?

  2. Romantic suspense is a genre that I've always wanted to try. I tend to prefer the combination of romance with other genres and that's not one that I've tried yet! Happy reading ��

    1. I tend to need my romance attached to something else. I'm just not a huge fan of contemporary. It needs an edge :)
      Thank you and happy reading to you too!

  5. Is Lessons in Corruption college age or younger? I try to keep all my student/teacher or age gap romances college or above. I'm intrigued by that one. I need to go look it up. Happy reading!
