(Trust) Falling for You

B08PW3BPMZ.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

(Trust) Falling for You by Charish Reid is $2.99! Catherine recently reviewed it and gave it a B:

The best romances, to my mind, are those in which two people help each other to become better and happier versions of themselves, and (Trust) Falling For You has this in spades. Really, my only complaint is that I wanted more of it – more story, more opportunities to see the characters together, more of everything. Which is a pretty nice complaint to have.

Yolanda Watson is the “fun professor.”

She makes literature exciting, she brings students donuts for Finals Week, and her colleagues love her. The only thing that will make teaching better is if she can learn how to write a grant and skip those boring committee meetings. In short, a History professor is her problem. He stole her grant and he chairs the most boring committee on campus.

Sure, he’s cute… but he can afford to loosen up.

Samuel Morris is a work-horse.

He puts his head down and proves his worth at Franklin University. That means no inane chit-chat with colleagues, no treating students like friends, and no shenanigans during the Assessment Committee. But a certain English professor happens to be full of shenanigans. She’s late, loud, and disorganized.

Sure, she’s sexy… but she can afford to tighten up.

They’ll both have to compromise.

A university team-building retreat to the woods of Wisconsin will ensure that. After a lodging mix-up, the opposites are forced to share the same cabin for six nights. As Team-Building Buddies, they will: sleep together, eat together, and play embarrassing bonding games together. One of them will have to budge. The sexual tension will get harder to ignore, especially when one Buddy requires rescuing from spiders, grasshoppers, and bears. Oh my…

The Calculating Stars

B0756JH5R1.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

RECOMMENDED: The Calculating Stars by Mary Robinette Kowal is $2.99 and a Kindle Daily Deal! Carrie read this one and gave it a B grade:

Even though at first I found this book to be slow going, I came to appreciate it for its intersectional feminism and its unabashed adoration of all the science and math that goes into making space flight possible.

A meteor decimates the U.S. government and paves the way for a climate cataclysm that will eventually render the earth inhospitable to humanity. This looming threat calls for a radically accelerated timeline in the earth’s efforts to colonize space, as well as an unprecedented opportunity for a much larger share of humanity to take part.

One of these new entrants in the space race is Elma York, whose experience as a WASP pilot and mathematician earns her a place in the International Aerospace Coalition’s attempts to put man on the moon. But with so many skilled and experienced women pilots and scientists involved with the program, it doesn’t take long before Elma begins to wonder why they can’t go into space, too—aside from some pesky barriers like thousands of years of history and a host of expectations about the proper place of the fairer sex. And yet, Elma’s drive to become the first Lady Astronaut is so strong that even the most dearly held conventions may not stand a chance.

First Earl I See Tonight

B079DTVYVM.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

First Earl I See Tonight by Anna Bennett is $1.99! This is the first book in the Debutante Diaries historical romance series. Elyse picked this one up because it had some elements she usually loved, but wound up giving it a D+.

An heiress with a daring proposal. An earl who’s determined to resist her. And a love that just might be written in the stars…

Recently jilted by his fiancée, David Gray, Earl of Ravenport is not in the market for a wife. Even if Gray didn’t have his hands full renovating his crumbling country house, it would take more than a bold marriage proposal from a headstrong young beauty to thaw his frozen heart. Gray is confident that spending a week at his ramshackle estate will change her mind about marriage, but every passionate moment he spends with her tempts him to change his…

A talented artist, Miss Fiona Hartley desperately needs her dowry money to pay off a blackmailer set on ruining her sister. The handsome earl seems a sensible choice for a husband…if only she can convince him that romance will play no part. But marrying in name only may prove difficult for Fiona. Gray can’t help but be dazzled by her genuine warmth. Yet as their feelings deepen, Fiona’s deadline looms. Will her secrets destroy them, or is true love their final destiny?

Middlegame

B07HF2ZK75.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

Middlegame by Seanan McGuire is $2.99! This is another Kindle Daily Deal! I know for a lot of the Bitchery, McGuire is an autobuy author. This was a standalone fantasy about twin siblings, but I believe a follow up was recently announced. Readers really enjoyed the main characters, though felt the book never got into a good rhythm. Have you read this one?

Meet Roger. Skilled with words, languages come easily to him. He instinctively understands how the world works through the power of story.

Meet Dodger, his twin. Numbers are her world, her obsession, her everything. All she understands, she does so through the power of math.

Roger and Dodger aren’t exactly human, though they don’t realise it. They aren’t exactly gods, either. Not entirely. Not yet.

Meet Reed, skilled in the alchemical arts like his progenitor before him. Reed created Dodger and her brother. He’s not their father. Not quite. But he has a plan: to raise the twins to the highest power, to ascend with them and claim their authority as his own.

Godhood is attainable. Pray it isn’t attained.
