The Herd Presents
I am late in posting, in all honesty, I never knew that I should have done this post. Well, better late than never.
I had set a goal to read thirty (30) books, but I think I was a bit too over zealous when I made the decision. So far I have read five (5) books.
I now know I will not make the thirty (30) but I am hoping to squeeze in at least six (6) more books before the year ends.

BOOK REVIEW: HART OF HIS by ANNIE ARCANE

Title: Hart of His (Hart #2)
Author: Annie Arcane

Publisher: Indie
Release Date: November 21, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Source: Author via The Romance Review

Reading Challenges: 2017 Blogger Shame
Purchase: Amazon
It's been two months since I moved in with Mickey Hart. Here's what I've learned:

 1. 523 square feet is really f*cking small. 

2. Sharing a bathroom is the worst idea ever.
 Especially when you're a damn paraplegic. 

3. Never lie. No matter what. 

Oh, and one last thing... I love her. More than ever.
 Even if I'm still a workaholic. And stubborn as all hell. 

Warning: Strong language, mature content, drama, and angst included. Shirt sold separately. 
This novella is an adult contemporary romance featuring a disabled hero who (still) happens to be a rich and sexy alpha male with a potty mouth.

I hit a slight slump in my reading. I managed to read two books in the past week. This was mostly due to me not being in the mood for reading, which was rather strange for me. I chalked it up to the fact that I was emotionally and physically drained. I
hope to regain my momentum in the coming week.

Title: Finding Our Forever Author: Brenda Novak Series: Silver Spring Publisher: Harlequin Published: March 21, 2017 Buy: Amazon

New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak welcomes readers to the town of Silver Springs, where surprises wait around every corner!

The search for her birth mother brought Cora Kelly to the New Horizons Boys Ranch. Getting a job there was easy enough, but confiding in Aiyana, the ranch's owner, that she's really her daughter? Cora's not sure she can do that, not unless she's confident the news will be welcomed. And once she gets to know Elijah Turner, Aiyana's adopted son and ranch manager, that decision becomes even more difficult.

Although Elijah can't deny his deep attraction to Cora, he's always struggled with trust. Anyone with his past would, and there's something about the ranch's newest employee that isn't exactly as it seems. But if…
