Books I bought In May

I've been pretty much busy and became kinda lazy to post anything on my blog. And yet, I've got a lot of reading done these past few months. Since the summer is almost here, I've decided to try to spend more times on my reading too. So far in May, I've read 4 books. I'm hoping to read more books in by the end of May. Wish me luck!

Below are the books I bought this month. They're all authors I've read for many years and had became my favorites. I admit that I'm sorry to see that Sweet Spot is the last book for Richmond Rogues baseball series. I'm going to miss them. Also I'm very used to read Roxanne St. Clair's Bullet Catcher series and sad to hear that it will be the last one but for a while. I'm anxious to try her new contemporary romance Barefoot Bay series soon. The last book, is 'new to me author'. I have read many reviews on this book and the idea of a heroine working for a legendary female assassin, and she only employs women, working together with group of mercenaries men for a rescue missions pique my interest!

Next time, I will post the upcoming May books that I'm looking forward to buy soon!

Barefoot in the Sand by Roxanne St. Claire
When a hurricane roars through Lacey Armstrong's home on the coast of Barefoot Bay, she decides all that remains in the rubble is opportunity. A new hotel is just what Mimosa Key needs, and Lacey and her teenage daughter are due for a fresh start. And nothing, especially not a hot, younger architect, is going to distract Lacey from finally making her dreams a reality.

A second chance is the only thing you have left.

Love has already cost Clay Walker everything. And if he's going to have any chance of picking up the pieces of his life, he needs the job as Lacey Armstrong's architect. What's not in the plans is falling for the headstrong beauty. Her vision of the future is more appealing than anything he could have ever drafted for himself. Will Clay's designs on Lacey's heart be more than she can handle, or will she trust him to build something that will last forever?

The Last Boyfriend by Nora Roberts
Owen is the organizer of the Montgomery clan, running the family’s construction business with an iron fist—and an even less flexible spreadsheet. And though his brothers bust on his compulsive list-making, the Inn BoonsBoro is about to open right on schedule. The only thing Owen didn’t plan for was Avery McTavish...

Avery’s popular pizza place is right across the street from the inn, giving her a first-hand look at its amazing renovation—and a newfound appreciation for Owen. Since he was her first boyfriend when they were kids, Owen has never been far from Avery’s thoughts. But the attraction she’s feeling for him now is far from innocent.

As Avery and Owen cautiously take their relationship to another level, the opening of the inn gives the whole town of Boonsboro a reason to celebrate. But Owen’s hard work has only begun. Getting Avery to let down her guard is going to take longer than he expected—and so will getting her to realize that her first boyfriend is going to be her last…

Sweet Spot by Kate Angell
Editorial Reviews
Publishers Weekly
Angell’s fifth Richmond Rogues baseball romance (after Sliding Home) is another lighthearted contemporary in which a rakehell athlete is tamed by a quirky, passionate woman. Star second baseman James “Law” Lawless and ambitious financial adviser Cat May have a memorable sexual encounter while in costumes and masks at a night club. He spends much of the book trying to identify “Wonder Woman” while she tries to pretend the incident never happened. Meanwhile, as affluent investor, Law meets Cat in her professional role and is wowed by her business acumen. Disappointingly, there is little of the baseball trivia that gave the earlier books their charm, but fans of the Richmond Rogues will enjoy cameo appearances from the whole team and their sweethearts. Agent: Roberta Brown, Brown Literary Agency.

Under Fire by Catherine Mann
No Holds Barred, In Love or War...

A decorated hero, pararescueman Liam McCabe lives to serve. Six months ago, her and Rachel Flores met in the horrific aftermath of an earthquake in the Bahamas. They were tempted by an explosive attraction, but then they parted ways. Still, Liam has thought about Rachel every day—and night—since.

Now, after ignoring all his phone calls for six month, Rachel has turned up on base with a wild story about a high–ranking military traitor. She claims no one but Liam can help her—and she won't trust anyone else.

With nothing but her word and the testimony of a discharged military cop to go on, Liam would be insane to risk his career—even his life— to help a woman who left him in the dust.

Midnight Rescue by Elle Kennedy
Dangerous. Ruthless. Savage. And she's the good guy.

Abby Sinclair had a desperate childhood until she was rescued and adopted by a retired army ranger who molded her into a master of self-defense. Now, she's a cunning and fearless assassin thrust into assignment after dangerous assignment, using everything she has-nerve, resilience, strength, sex-to come out on top. Her only rule: trust no one.
Abby's latest assignment is in Columbia: go undercover and snuff out a dangerous arms dealer active in the underground sex trade. But when Abby purposely blows her cover in a last-ditch attempt to free the helpless victims, deadly mercenary Kane Woodland is recruited as back-up. His mission: get Abby out of that hell hole.

The last thing Kane expects is to feel a primal attraction for Abby. But when she convinces him to join her on her perilous mission, their newfound passion could put the lives of their whole team at risk.
