Waiting On Wednesday (349) Vanilla Clouds by Roe Horvat

Expected publication: July 25th 2018 by Beaten Track Publishing


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, previously hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

This my favorite day of the week because I love sharing and discovering new books.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

“I could spend days listening to you talk about chocolate.”

Sex and chocolate are the two pleasures Michał enjoys most in life.

His sex life has been nonexistent for some time, though. After a particularly bad hookup, he keeps mostly to himself. That leaves chocolate. Luckily, he works surrounded by the most delicious, extravagant produce in Gothenburg. Beside his job at the chocolaterie, his main source of excitement is his online friend, Magnus, whom he stubbornly refuses to meet in person.

A customer turns up at the chocolaterie one day—tall, shy, and charming. He could be just the right man. If Michał can step out of his overly safe shell, there might be not only chocolate, but sex, too. Maybe chocolate-flavored sex. And if he’s lucky, maybe even love.

Warning:
This book contains explicit scenes, adult language, and obscene amounts of chocolate.

I read 2 of this author's previous books and enjoyed them both, so I'm hoping I'll like this just as much.

Review: Imperial Stout (Trouble Brewing #1) by Layla Reyne

Publication: July 23, 2018 by Carina Press
Genre: M/M, Contemporary, Suspense, Romance

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Layla Reyne spins off from her pulse-pounding Agents Irish and Whiskey books with Imperial Stout, the first installment in the Trouble Brewing series.

It’s a good thing assistant US attorney Dominic Price co-owns a brewery. He could use a cold one. Nic’s star witness has just been kidnapped, his joint operation with the FBI is in jeopardy, his father’s shady past is catching up with him and the hot new special agent in San Francisco is the kind of distraction best handled with a stiff drink.

Kidnap and rescue expert Cameron Byrne has his own ideas about how to handle Nic, but his skills are currently needed elsewhere. The by-the-book FBI agent goes deep undercover as a member of an infamous heist crew in order to save Nic’s witness, break up the crew and close the case before anyone else gets hurt. Nic in particular.

Things heat up when Cam falls for Nic, and the witness falls for Cam. As the crew’s suspicions grow, Cam must decide how far he’s willing to go—and how far into his own dark past he’s willing to dive—to get everyone out alive.


I've been looking forward to the start of this spin off series, and this book did not disappoint. I enjoyed this author's AI&W series, and she delivered again with another action packed story. The pace, the storyline, and the chemistry between Cameron and Dominic was spot on. The case they teamed up on provided good suspense and brought in a lot of characters from the previous series. 

I enjoyed learning about Dominic and Cameron, and their back stories really left me wanting to know more about them! Their relationship was definitely a slow burn, but it was SO worth waiting for. I'm looking forward to seeing how their relationship progresses in the rest of the series.

Imperial Stout can be read as a standalone, but I feel that it would help if you’ve read the Agents Irish & Whiskey series so you aren't completely lost with the multiple characters and the previous goings on.


An advanced copy of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

My Rating: 4 Stars

Waiting On Wednesday (348) In Other Words...Murder (Holmes & Moriarity #4) by Josh Lanyon

Published July 17th 2018 by Josh Lanyon


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, previously hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

This my favorite day of the week because I love sharing and discovering new books.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Death reveals all secrets.

Mystery author Christopher Holmes, now comfortably married to sometimes rival, sometimes nemesis J.X. Moriarity, is starting a new career as a true crime writer when threatening anonymous notes start arriving.

Even worse, Christopher's ex also arrives--asking for help locating the man he left Christopher for!

It's life--and death--as usual at Chez Holmes. In other words... Murder.

The publishing date for this book changed so many times that I couldn't keep up with it. The date was pushed back for months, and I hadn't realized that it had actually been moved back up. Whatever. Different release dates on different formats because why not??? The freedoms of self publishing I suppose.

But it's here now, waiting for me on my Kindle, only I really want to do a reread of the first 3 books before I tackle this. Sigh.

Waiting On Wednesday (347) Risk Taker (Mixed Messages #3) by Lily Morton

Expected publication: July 22nd 2018


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, previously hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

This my favorite day of the week because I love sharing and discovering new books.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Henry’s the odd man out. All his friends are settling down, and his reputation as the Hook-Up King of London seems more like a curse than a blessing these days. Especially when it keeps photojournalist Ivo, his best friend and the brilliant man he’s loved since they were fifteen, at arm’s length. But that’s where Ivo wants him, right? Putting aside his feelings, Henry decides to give up casual sex and look for the real deal. After all, he has no chance with Ivo - or does he?

Henry is everything to Ivo. Best friend, soul mate, the one person who has never let him down. The one person he is loyal to above everything and everyone. But Henry’s in a box marked best friend and that’s where Ivo’s kept him for nearly twenty years, despite steadily falling in love with the gentle man. And besides, why would Henry want to date Ivo? Burned out and injured, he’s the walking embodiment of damaged.

Distance has helped Henry and Ivo keep a lid on their attraction, but when they find themselves in the same city for a change—Ivo hurt and needing assistance, and Henry more than willing to provide it—the two best friends grow closer than ever, forcing a realization, and a decision. Risk their friendship for their hearts? Or can they have both?

From the bestselling author of Rule Breaker and Deal Maker comes a tender love story about two best friends who are perfect for each other, and always have been - if only they knew it.

Ahhh, another series that I am actually reading as it is released. Surprising, right? I think it helps that each book is a stand alone. I enjoyed the first book a little bit more than the second, so I'm hoping this one is good, too!!!!
