The Auspicious Troubles of Chance (The Auspicious Troubles of Love #1) [Chance & Jacky] by Charlie Cochet

I'm not sure why really but I didn't connect with Chance, our sole POV. He started with a lot of "telling" of his personal history and continued with not enough of "showing". Chance had a very difficult life, being unwanted for too many years and when he finally found himself everyone he cared about were tragically taken away from him. Not knowing where to go now he finds himself in the French Legion looking for a commander that is said to be able to make a "proper soldier" out of him. Same man will turn out to be a lot more than just his officer.

I'll admit I haven't read a lot of this one. After 25%, which isn't a lot page-wise considering it's not a long novel, I felt isn't for me. Chances' way of thinking, his general disposition towards life didn't appeal to me.. So I figured I'll just let it go..

Lingus by Mariana Zapata

After reading "The Wall of Winnipeg and Me" I knew I needed to read more by Mariana, when I've heard she also own Great Danes there was NO WAY I wasn't scheduling all of her books ASAP hehe. This was Mariana's first book and I gotta say I really enjoyed it! :) I'm usually not that into long romance novels (unless they are of the PNR genre) but the "slow burn" works SO WELL with Mariana's writing. 

This is a sort of "unlikely" romance story in which our sweet and in a way innocent young woman - Katherine Berger - falls for the porn star and he in turn falls madly with her as well. You would think it's going to be a kinky story but though there are jokes and sexual innuendos, this was a sweet story of a two strangers becoming best friends and little by little falling in love.

Bobby Green (Johnnies #5) [Vern "Bobby" & Reg "Digger"] by Amy Lane

This was NOT what I was expecting and I'm SO sad that this one didn't work for me as much as the previous ones in the series which were AWESOME. They were not what I was expecting in a good way considering "Johnnies" is a company which makes Porn.. I just had a hard time connecting with the story or rather with Vern and Reg and from what happened until I stopped I think it won't work for me further on. 

I've read the previous installments two years ago, and though I remember I loved them, I don't remember too many things. It quite annoyed me frankly to have all those characters I remember yet I don't remember ENOUGH to feel comfortable with the setting. With Reg and Bobby, frankly I don't remember anything about them. So in a way it was like starting anew.

Brooklynaire (Brooklyn Bruisers #4) [Nate & Rebecca] by Sarina Bowen

It was sure worth it to wait for Nate and Rebecca's story :) I loved it to pieces and not only because I've missed this series so much! I'm not a hockey fan, it's not that I have anything against it, I just haven't actually SEEN a game in my life but through reading the books I SO wish I had someone to watch a game, any game, and help me figure out what's going on out there on the rink!

The story line of this book and the previous one ("Pipe Dreams") is very similar so you should know that reading anyone of them before the other would spoiler SOMETHING though mostly tidy bits. I didn't mind any of that really because even if you read this one as a stand alone (which you totally can!) it's obvious who's the couple in the previous one, and if you've read any of the previous ones you KNOW Becca and Nate MUST find their way to each other's arms. The only other spoiler refers to the state of the team which doesn't matter that much to the story itself so I didn't mind that as well.
