“Through My Window” by Jayne Rylon (ebook)
This book isn’t really a romance, it is a look at an evening of a sex worker in Amersterdam. While it was fine, I prefer romances to this type of story. And yes, I knew this before I read it is one

 

“Because You Are Mine Part II: Because I Could Not Resist” by Beth Kery (ebook)
This is the second installment in Beth Kery’s new serial romance. I am enjoying the story, but definitely would prefer to the read the story as one book. Each part ends with a bit of a cliffhanger, and then I have to wait a week to read the next part. I do have them all pre-ordered though, so I won’t miss any.

 

“Forgotten Dreams” by Alexia Banks (ebook, review copy)

“How to Romance a Rake” by Manda Collins (ebook, review copy, NetGalley)
Review to come.

 

“Because You Are Mine Part I: Because You Tempt Me” by Beth Kery (ebook)
This is the first of eight parts of Beth Kery’s serial novel. I enjoyed the first part, but don’t want to say too much until I’ve read all eight parts. I am caught up in the story, but not sure how I feel about this format. Waiting makes me a bit irritated. Normally, I think I would wait until all parts were out to read this. However, I did want to read this one as it was intended to be read. Be warned: this first part has a cliffhanger ending!
