MY REVIEW

CW: Homophobic hate crime, murder, violence

Three Nights With a Scoundrel brings Tessa Dare’s Stud Club series to a close with Lily and Bellamy’s story. While not my favorite in the series, I still really enjoyed this story. It’s hard for me to pinpoint exactly what was missing from this book that kept me from moving it from like to love, but something just didn’t fully click with me to push this over the line.

MY REVIEW

Twice Tempted by a Rogue is book two in Tessa Dare’s Stud Club series. While I liked this one, I didn’t find the story all that memorable afterward. However, I am liking this series and characters a lot more than the Wanton Dairymaid series, Dare’s first series.

Note this book does contain descriptions of physical/mental abuse, discussion of suicidal tendencies and forced prositution so it might not be for everyone.

MY REVIEW

One Dance With a Duke kicks off Tessa Dare’s second series, The Stud Club. Before the “But Do The Bang?” Tessa Dare readalong, I had never read this series or the Wanton Dairymaid series. After not really enjoying the Wanton Dairymaid series, I was a bit hesitant about her second series despite being a fan of everything she’s published since Spindle Cove. However, this book felt so much more like the Tessa Dare books I know and love! It felt like a full 180 from her first series.

June 2021 Recap

I cannot believe June has come and gone. Does this year feel like it is flying by for anyone else, or is it just me?

Since we just passed the midpoint of the year, I thought I’d start with a quick check in on how I’m tracking against my reading goal for the year. This year, my goal is to read 100 books. So far, it looks like I’m track to meet that as I closed out June with my 54th book of the year. According to Goodreads (if we’re not friends, come add me!), that puts me about 5 books ahead.

Now let’s dive into the June recap!

June TBR List

Happy June! Hard to believe summer is almost here!

I don’t think I’ve ever posted a TBR list before on my blog. I’m more of a mood reader than anything else, but I’ve been trying to pull together a TBR each month to give myself a little structure. I definitely don’t stick to it all the time though.

For June though I have high hopes of reading all of the books on my TBR! First off, half of them are part of the “But Do They Bang?” readalong of Tessa Dare’s books. Am I ever going to get tired of saying the name of that readalong? No. I have a library book, an ARC and a new release on here as well that I’m feeling confident about as well.

Here’s what’s on my TBR this month:
