Each month you will make a post with three books from your TBR List (these books can be already on your kindle or shelf or books you might want to purchase) and add your link on the linky that will be provided on my post. Your followers and the people on the linky will help you choose which book you will read next. The following Saturday you will announce the book that won. Then read the book and on the last Saturday of the month post a review.
This month I’ve decided to focus on reading an author I’ve wanted to read for a while and will be at Book Bonanza this summer – since I’m going! – and would like to have read more of the authors. I also decided to make sure I actually already own the books though, so that did limit me a little bit.

I know this author and she’s a WONDERFUL person. I will be really disappointed in myself if I don’t read one of her books in the very near future. Plus they look seriously good! The other good news? It’s only 100 pages, which means it won’t take me FOREVER to read 🙂

Big Rock by Lauren Blakely
Published by EverAfter Platinum on January 6, 2016
I saw this book and it’s sequels reviewed probably a year ago… and then again and again. So I’ve purchased them. I want to read them. Why haven’t I? No, seriously. Why?
It's not just the motion of the ocean, ladies. It's definitely the SIZE of the boat too.
And I've got both firing on all cylinders. In fact, I have ALL the right assets. Looks, brains, my own money, and a big c*&k.
You might think I'm an a*&hole. I sound like one, don’t I? I'm hot as sin, rich as heaven, smart as hell and hung like a horse.
Guess what? You haven't heard my story before. Sure, I might be a playboy, like the NY gossip rags call me. But I’m the playboy who’s actually a great guy. Which makes me one of a kind.
The only trouble is, my dad needs me to cool it for a bit. With conservative investors in town wanting to buy his flagship Fifth Avenue jewelry store, he needs me not only to zip it up, but to look the part of the committed guy. Fine. I can do this for Dad. After all, I’ve got him to thank for the family jewels. So I ask my best friend and business partner to be my fiancée for the next week. Charlotte’s up for it. She has her own reasons for saying yes to wearing this big rock.
And pretty soon all this playing pretend in public leads to no pretending whatsoever in the bedroom, because she just can’t fake the kind of toe-curling, window-shattering orgasmic cries she makes as I take her to new heights between the sheets.
But I can’t seem to fake that I might be feeling something real for her.
What the fuck have I gotten myself into with this…big rock?
BIG ROCK is a standalone, dirty romance novel written from the guy’s POV by NYT Bestselling author Lauren Blakely…
The Marriage Bargain by Jennifer Probst
Published by Entangled Publishing (Indulgence) on February 14, 2012
I’ve owned this book since 2014 y’all! What the heck?! It has one of my favorite tropes… the fake marriage is almost always awesome. So yeah, I really REALLY want to read this one (even if I forgot about it for 4 years…)!
A marriage in name only...
To save her family home, impulsive bookstore owner, Alexa Maria McKenzie, casts a love spell. But she never planned on conjuring up her best friend's older brother—the powerful man who once shattered her heart.
Billionaire Nicholas Ryan doesn’t believe in marriage, but in order to inherit his father’s corporation, he needs a wife and needs one fast. When he discovers his sister’s childhood friend is in dire financial straits, he offers Alexa a bold proposition.
A marriage in name only with certain rules: avoid entanglement. Keep things all business. Do not fall in love. The arrangement is only for a year so the rules shouldn’t be that hard to follow, right?
Except fate has a way of upsetting the best-laid plans…
Now Vote!! Which of my May 2018 choices do you think I should read?
