Books so far in 2018
I started out the year devouring a bunch of uber dominant, male paranormal novels until I had to switch gears and clean my palette. It’s not that I don’t enjoy a powerful male, but after that run I had the desperate desire for just one suby or switch guy who wasn’t a ‘true dom’. (Alpha, whatever...)
Rated from higher to lesser Dom rather than order of reading (Or book order).
No disrespect for the authors in this group, I enjoyed the heck out of these, but I needed a different flavor after all that.
So, I read some other romance books:
And then heard about this ‘Cinnamon Roll’ hero and I wanted to see an example.
That was a shorter book, but much more my speed in regards to toning down that ‘true alpha’ thing. (Clearly I’m into the Cinnamon Roll heroes. Extra sugar, please.)
Then I went back to my beloved Sci-Fi
(Do yourself a favor and go pick up one of their books. I suggest THIS. Read. Report back.)

Then, I switched to some real classics and went to Jane Austen, as one does.
I know you’re asking, “Where is Sense and Sensibility, and Pride and Prejudice?” Well, I read P&P last year and I haven’t gotten around to S&S yet. I really enjoyed Northanger Abbey.
I got this last year at the RWA conference and started reading it in January. Nothing against the writing or the book, it’s just not fully in my wheelhouse. I thought I’d like a book about bikers, but somehow other stories keep leap-frogging over this one. I’m about a quarters into it. I really should give it my full attention. Maybe this weekend I’ll biker up.
I’m not so far into this one. I enjoyed the first book so much that I jumped into the sequel. Then I got to the sex bit and she’s lactating and he…well… I just couldn’t. Yeah, yeah, natural and all that, but not my kink. I put it aside to cool and other books jumped ahead. Still in my ‘in progress’ list.
This one I haven’t even started but I read the first two books after meeting Linnea Sinclair at RWA. I really enjoyed the world she’d created and I’m looking forward to tearing through this one.
Have some suggestions for me? Want me to read something you have? I’d love to see some Sci-Fi romance in whatever heat-flavor you’ve got, or you love. <3
