Stacking the Shelves

 

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual.

Review
Heat Wave by Karina Hall

d-heat-wave

They say when life closes one door, another one opens.
This door happens to lead to paradise.
And a man I can never, ever have.

~~~

Still grieving the loss of her sister who died two years ago, the last thing Veronica “Ronnie” Locke needed was to lose her job at one of Chicago’s finest restaurants and have to move back in with her parents. So when a window of opportunity opens for her – running a kitchen at a small Hawaiian hotel – she’d be crazy not to take it.

The only problem is, the man running the hotel drives her crazy:
Logan Shephard.
It doesn’t matter that he’s got dark brown eyes, a tall, muscular build that’s sculpted from daily surfing sessions, and a deep Australian accent that makes your toes curl.
What does matter is that he’s a grump.
Kind of an asshole, too.
And gets under Ronnie’s skin like no one else.

But the more time Ronnie spends on the island of Kauai, falling in love with the lush land and its carefree lifestyle, the closer she gets to Logan. And the closer she gets to Logan, the more she realizes she may have pegged him all wrong. Maybe it’s the hot, steamy jungles or the invigorating ocean air, but soon their relationship becomes utterly intoxicating.

There’s just one major catch.

The two of them together would incite a scandal neither Ronnie, nor her family, would ever recover from.

Forbidden, Illicit, off-limits – sometimes the heat is worth surrendering to, even if you get burned.

Note: this is a standalone novel, unrelated to any previous books. It does NOT contain cheating of any kind.

Le monde de Sombreterre T2 Les Gardiens de Cassandra O’Donnell

20161112_182933

Alina comprend que la situation s’est dégradée depuis son départ : le voile qui protège le monde de Sombreterre se fissure de plus en plus, laissant des monstres-esprits semer le chaos chez les humains.

Parmi les gardiens, on s’interroge : Victor est-il l’élu ?

Pourra-t’il tous les sauver ?

Les anciens sont fascinés par ses pouvoirs, mais Victor ne sait pas encore à qui accorder sa confiance…

  1. I have definitely seen the name “Karina Halle” before! I can’t say I’ve really heard of her books but she seems familiar. I hope you enjoy your new additions, Carine!

    Have a wonderful week. =)
