Books I liked the best this month:

This month also had some great reads:


Sweet Deception is the 2nd book in Heather Snow's Veiled Seduction series, which feature brilliant women scientist heroines. This one was more darker than Sweet Enemy, but just as enjoyable. I can't wait to read the 3rd book in the series.



Discovered a wonderful new series with a brilliant mathematician heroine and a darkly intense hero *swoon* Thankfully this is only the 1st book in Nina Rowan's Daring Hearts series, and I can't wait to read the next novels! You can read my review and win one of the 2 paperback copies HERE.


Book I liked the least this month:

Nothing that was bad this month, the books I liked the least all got 3.5 stars.
