IF YOU CAN’T STAND THE HEAT . . .Photographer Lili DeLuca spends all her time managing her family’s Italian restaurant, instead of following her dream of getting an MFA.

While Lili’s oh-so-sexy moans when she tastes his delicious creations turn him on, he’s even more aroused by how unimpressed this beautiful, funny woman is with his fame. He knows they could be amazing together, if she could only see past his bitch fork-wielding fan base. Now as he’s about to start a new prime time TV cooking show, can Jack convince Lili to realize her own ambitions – and turn up the heat in his kitchen?

Thursday Quotables (4)

Thursday Quotables is a weekly meme hosted at Bookshelf Fantasies. You choose a quote from your latest book read for the week. It can be a quote that made smile or laugh, had you crying, or just interesting in general.

 

This week, I quote from Kate Meader‘s Feel The Heat16076194

Like a sleepwalker, she shuffled back and shut the door. Through the spy hole, she watched him linger, his expression half swallowed by the shadow in the dimly lit hallway. She knew he was smiling because she was smiling, and if any kiss deserved a joyful reaction, it was that one.

It didn’t last. Well, it couldn’t, could it? Smile vanishing, she sank to the floor, her body a spineless mess, her stomach knotted so tight it hurt. The challenge had been thrown down; the choice was a minefield. She could get what she wanted and lose him, or give him what he wanted and lose her heart. Either way, it was going to be wonderful.

And then it was going to suck.

 

I love those last two lines the most. Reading the story, it is going to be both those things, I figure. *LOL*

I’m loving Kate Meader’s books. I can’t wait to read her upcoming books. She’s gearing up to be one of my favorite authors of Contemporary Romance.

What do you guys think about this quote?

 

 

Here’s the blurb from Goodreads if you’re interested in reading it (you should be ^_^):

Top Ten Tuesday: Books on my Winter TBR

d32cf-toptentuesday2

 

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the gals at The Broke and the Bookish. For this week’s list: Books On My Winter TBR, although technically we don’t have winter where I come from. 🙂

 

TTT Winter TBR

#10    Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor – I have yet to read this highly recommended book and I can’t wait to catch up on this series.

#9       Foreplay by Sophie Jordan – I haven’t had the opportunity to read any of Sophie Jordan’s work yet and this compelling story has me in its grip. 

#8       The Shadow Throne by Jennifer Nielsen – I can’t wait to see what Jennifer Neilsen has in store for her readers as she concludes her trilogy with the release of this book. 

#7       Feel the Heat by Kate Meader – I just finished All Fired Up and enjoyed it so much that all I can say about Kate Meader’s books is: More. I Want More.

#6       Satisfaction by Sarah Mayberry – I’ve loved all the books that Sarah Mayberry has written and I can’t wait for her next book to come out in early January

#5       Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge – The release date for this book never seems to come any closer. I’m excited to try out Rosamund Hodge’s writing. I hope she delivers because she has an already compelling storyline. 

#4       It Felt Like A Kiss by Sarra Manning – I haven’t read any of her  books yet but her name has been associated with a lot of starred reviews. When I read the book blurb for this one, I told myself I have got to read this one. 

#3       Crash Into You by Katie McGarry – I know. I’m already at the back of the pack. I want a hard copy of this book and it’s still not available in our local bookstores. So I’m (im)patiently waiting.

#2       The Chocolate Temptation by Laura Florand – I’ve fangirl-ed a lot about how I love Laura Florand’s book. I can’t wait for her next book for release.

#1        The Countess Conspiracy by Courtney Milan – December 17, why are you so far away? Courtney Milan writes one of the best historical romance stories there ever will be. Her latest series, The Brothers Sinister, is breathtaking. 

 

I have one honorable mention here: Sarah MacLean‘s No Good Duke Goes Unpunished. I’m also (im)patiently waiting for my copy to arrive via Bookdepository. I have to read this before the year ends. I just have to..

There you go. What about you, guys? What are your picks for the weeks?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila @ Book Journey. It’s a great opportunity for bloggers to post what books they plan to read for the week. Here are some of the books that made it to my TBR list this week.

A Wicked Pursuit by Isabella Bradford  I got an eARC copy of this. It’s slated for release on February 2014  but the book summary has gotten me hooked and I can’t wait to start reading this one. 

16076194

Feel the Heat by Kate Meader  I am on the hunt for a copy of this one. I enjoyed the second book in the series (I got an eARC of it) and I so want to read the first book of the series already.

What about you? It’s Monday! What are you reading?
