Can’t Wait Wednesday #23: My Pick is Hot Asset (21 Wall Street #1) by Lauren Layne

Can’t Wait Wednesday #23: My Pick is Hot Asset (21 Wall Street #1) by Lauren Layne

 
Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here, at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. If you’re continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well!

 

 

A handsome, cocky bad boy on Wall Street, and a woman dead set on taking him down. Yes, please! This sounds like it will one roller coaster ride between these two and I can’t wait to get my hands on it!

What are you waiting on this week?

The sharpest ache comes from wanting what you think you can’t have

Maybe Dolan has lived independent, free-spirited and unattached since leaving home at sixteen. Whiskey Sharp, Seattle’s sexy vintage-styled barbershop and whiskey bar, gave her a job and a reason to put down roots. Cutting hair by day, losing herself drumming in a punk rock band by night, she’s got it good.

But a longtime crush that turns into a hot, edgy night with brooding and bearded Alexsei Petrov makes …

My Year in Books 2017

My Year in Books 2017

 

 

 

This blogging year started off late fairly late in the year. My first post on the new site was July 17th. With major health issues I decided to step away a couple of years ago. So, it had been a while since I had blogged when I started Jenea’s Book Obsession, and at first I was a little apprehensive about it. But everyone so sweet and so welcoming once again. I missed reading and blogging so much. And I am really happy to be back. It has been a lot of fun so far. I participated in my first readathon, HoHoHoReadathon and have met so many new bloggers and made some amazing new friends as well as connecting with some …

Best Friends Forever by Margot Hunt Published by MIRA on January 23rd 2018 Genres: Adult, Suspense, Mystery, Psychological Thriller Pages: 336 Format: Kindle Source: Publisher Buy on Amazon Goodreads

How well do you really know your best friend?

Kat Grant and Alice Campbell have a friendship forged in shared confidences and long lunches lubricated by expensive wine. Though they’re very different women—the artsy socialite and the struggling suburbanite—they’re each other’s rocks. But even rocks crumble under pressure. Like when Kat’s financier husband, Howard, plunges to his death from the second-floor balcony of their South Florida mansion.

Howard was a jerk, a drunk, a bully and, police say, a murder …
