Waiting On Wednesday (506) Operation Meet Cute by K.M. Neuhold

Expected publication: August 2nd 2021 by K.M. Neuhold
Genre: M/M, Romance


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings
that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
(WoW was previously hosted by Breaking The Spine.)

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

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Harlow is on a single-minded mission: meet the man of his dreams by any meet-cute necessary.

All my life, I’ve dreamed of one thing: the perfect movie moment. I want a man and his boombox outside my window; I want kissing in the rain; I want a romantic hero who will take my breath away.

Switching mail with my cute neighbor didn’t work. Swapping coffee with a hottie at the coffee shop just got the poor barista yelled at. And bus guy? Total bust. I’m starting to wonder if Hollywood got the whole meet-cute thing wrong. Sacrilege, I know.

Is it possible the perfect leading man has been living in the apartment above me the entire time, playing the role of my best friend?

Things are about to get very interesting…

I have been reading and enjoying a lot of this author's recent works, and this one sounds cute and perfect for me. (Although, he'd have to fight me for Lloyd Dobler. Just sayin'.) I can't wait to read it!

Waiting On Wednesday (505) Charles (Learning to Love #1) by Con Riley

Expected publication: July 22nd 2021 by Figment Ink
Genre: M/M, Romance


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings

(WoW was previously hosted by Breaking The Spine.)

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

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Life should be a breeze for a playboy like Charles Heppel. As the third son of an earl, he lives for the moment, partying and playing. Settling down isn’t for him. Not when London is full of beautiful men who he hasn’t one-and-done yet.

To escape his family’s nagging, Charles applies for a temp job that matches his playful skill set. A role in a Cornish classroom could be his until the summer, if Charles meets two conditions: he must move in with the headmaster’s best friend, and teach him to be happy.

Living with Hugo should be awkward. Charles is a free spirit, but Hugo’s a man of faith, with morals. A man who almost took holy orders before disaster changed his direction. Only far from being a chore, Charles finds that making Hugo happy soon becomes his passion.

Together, they share physical and emotional first times. Ones that change Charles, touching his soul. He wants Hugo for longer than they have left, but learning to love with his heart, not just his body, will take a leap of faith from Charles — in himself as well as Hugo.

I'm sick. I've got a stupid cold / snot / post nasal drip / cough thing going on and not feeling the greatest. My daughter is counseling at a summer camp this year and she brought home the yuckies 2 weeks ago. My husband had it last week, and now it's my turn. Ugh. But I did manage to read a book each of the last 4 days that I haven't felt good. So I'm slowly catching up on my Goodreads challenge. So.... Yay???

I started a different series by this author last summer, but I only read the first book. I don't know if it was me, or the writing style, or something else but I thought it was just okay. I didn't continue the series because it didn't interest me. This is the start of a new series, so I'm giving the author one more chance to wow me before they go on my do not read list. (The 'list' that's not official or anything, and is only in my head, but totally keeps me from wasting my time in the future.)

Waiting On Wednesday (504) Pause (Larsen Bros #2) by Kylie Scott

Expected publication: July 13th 2021 by Kylie Scott
Genre: M/F, Romance


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings
that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
(WoW was previously hosted by Breaking The Spine.)

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

Synopsis from Goodreads:

When Anna wakes up from a coma after a car crash, she discovers life has gone on without her. Her husband has been unfaithful—with her best friend—and she’s been long since replaced at work. While her old life is a distant memory, her new life feels like an empty shell. Then she meets the stranger who saved her life during the crash, and he changes everything.

Leif Larsen—tattooist, joker, and player—has his own scars thanks to the crash that put Anna in a coma. Helping her move on from her failed marriage, and create a new life, sounds like a perfect distraction. So when he needs a new roommate, he invites Anna to begin her new life with him.

Although their lives may have been put on pause, together they just might find a way to heal.

I used to read this author back in the day. I haven't been reading much M/F romance lately, but I saw this on Goodreads (He totally looks like Guy of Gisborn/Richard Armitage!! I had to do a double take.) and I wanted to see what it was about. So I remember reading the first book in this series several years ago, but now I'm kind of leery of this one since I'm not convinced that 2 brothers (the MCs of each book) can both have have love interests with coma/memory loss. But, yeah, I'll still probably read this.

Waiting On Wednesday (503) Scoring With Him (Men of Summer #1) by Lauren Blakely

Expected publication: July 9th 2021 by Hot Men Books
Genre: M/M, Sports, Romance


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings
that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
(WoW was previously hosted by Breaking The Spine.)

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

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Falling for the rookie wasn't part of the plan. As a pro athlete, I have one unbreakable rule when it comes to men -- Don't date another baseball player. Good thing I haven't been tempted once in four years in the majors.

Until the day a rising star walks into my locker room. Outgoing, affable, and sexy-as-sin, Grant has confidence and talent for miles. He seems to get me too, maybe because we each have our fair share of secrets and scars -- ones we'll both fight to protect.

But, I've got far too much trouble in my past to want to bring any into my present. All the more reason to resist the kind of dirty deeds his lips and eyes promise. Even after I plant a scorching, hot kiss on the rookie one night after a game. Even after he sends me the world's sexiest selfie.

But when Grant reveals his biggest secret, I'm so damn ready to rip up the rulebook. The only rule? Don't fall in love with him as we go.

I've only read one book from this author, and I wasn't all that impressed. However, I'm willing to give her a second chance, so this book better be good! Seriously though, I'm a huge sports fan, but usually books about sports gets SO much wrong! I guess I just have to let reality slide and go with it.

(On a side note, how is this author so freaking prolific? According to Goodreads, 32 books in 2020? 21 in 2019? What's going on here?)
