My To-Be Read List #16: poll

Posted December 5, 2015 by Lola in My To-Be Read List, Romance, Suspense / 34 Comments


My To-Be Read List is a meme hosted by Because Reading is Better Than Real Life where at the beginning of the month visitors can choose which book I’ll be reading this month. On the first saturday of a month the poll will be up, then on the second saturday of the month I’ll announce the book that won and on the last saturday of the month I’ll post my review of the book.

Okay below are are the 3 books on which you can vote this month, all 3 are romantic suspense books as I am in the mood for that genre. All books are the second or third book in the series. And an interesting tidbit is that for two of these books, an earlier book in the series has won this poll once. In the case of the Burying Water series both the first and second book have won this poll once.

Chasing RiverChasing River (Burying Water #3)

Armed with two years’ worth of savings and the need to experience life outside the bubble of her Oregon small town, twenty-five-year old Amber Welles is prepared for anything. Except dying in Dublin. Had it not been for the bravery of a stranger, she might have. But he takes off before she has the chance to offer her gratitude.

Twenty-four-year-old River Delaney is rattled. No one was supposed to get hurt. But then that American tourist showed up. He couldn’t let her die, but he also couldn’t risk being identified at the scene—so, he ran. Back to his everyday life of running his family’s pub. Only, everyday life is getting more and more complicated, thanks to his brother, Aengus, and his criminal associations. When the American girl tracks River down, he quickly realizes how much he likes her, how wrong she is for him. And how dangerous it is to have her around. Chasing her off would be the smart move.

Maybe it’s because he saved her life, or maybe it’s because he’s completely different from everything she’s left behind, but Amber finds herself chasing after River Delaney. Amber isn’t the kind of girl to chase after anyone.

And River isn’t the kind of guy she’d want to catch.

Truths We TellTruths We Tell (The Truth Series #2)
by Brenda St. John Brown

Format: e-copy

Ella Ingraham makes up stories for a living, and even she has a hard time believing the turn her love life has taken.

Hot guy? Cue Josh Devereaux.
Even hotter night together? Hello kitchen counter.
Morning-after phone call to Josh from her ex? Um, what?

The truth about who Josh is and what he’s done are on the other end of that phone. He knows he lied. He also knows that isn’t the worst of it. It isn’t even that Ella’s ex thinks Josh is the right man to help destroy her. Again. The worst part is the way Ella looks at him now. Or doesn’t.

Ella isn’t sure what the worst part is – Josh lying to her about his past, or the fact she can’t stop thinking about him anyway. Not that he’s making it easy for her, with his idea to stop her ex’s slander campaigns against her before her next big book release. Even Ella has to admit it’s a better plan than she – or her lawyer – have come up with. But for the plan to work, Ella has to not only rely on Josh, but trust him. Implicitly.

Ella knows she’d be a fool to trust him a second time. So why does her heart keep trying to convince her otherwise?

The Santa Barbara Channel holds a closely guarded secret…

She needed his help…
Corporate physician, Dr. Libra Lewis thinks she knows what is making the males of the Shore Shifters turn violent, but she needs funding for the research, lots of money that hinges on the approval of field ops leader, Rye Walker. When one of Rye’s operatives goes missing, Libra offers to barter her help for the money. But can a woman who’s spent her life in the shadow of her sexy sister really work with a man like Rye ?

He needed a second chance…
Rye Walker’s last mission as the leader of field ops was cut short by scandal and when no one stepped forward to support him, he resolved that in the future, he’d always go it alone. Now Rye has been reinstated, another chance to prove himself –without help from anyone. But Libra has something he needs… and if Rye is honest, he’s finding Libra harder and harder to resist.

Now it’s time to vote!

    • I have read the first two books in this series so far and I can definitely agree that the hype around this series is well deserved. I really enjoyed the first two books.

    • I’ve read the first two books in this series and I keep coming back for mroe even though they don’t wow me, they do keep my attention. The dolphin shifter aspect is greta, although I had wished they did more with it. It’s a minor part of the books so far.

    • Oh I will read it eventually, this poll is just to determine which book I will at least read this month. I have read the first two books in the series already and really enjoyed it and I have the third and fourth books waiting on my shelf to be read.

  1. Well, this is a tough choice. I love romantic suspense. I know the first one is good after reading your series reviews. But something about the middle choice is tugging at me. Hmmm…

    • I am still finding my way in the genre, but so far my experience have been very good. I am pretty sure I will enjoy all three of these as I enjoyed the earlier books in these series.
      The first Truth series book ended in a cliffhanger, so I am really curious how things continue in this book.

    • I’ve read the first two books in the series and it’s a good series so far. It’s just a shame there isn’t as much focus on the dolphin aspect as I had hoped, but it keeps my attention.
