Hi everyone! December is defintely the month of readathons for me, I decided to participate in 3 of them before I remember that I have so much school work for the first half of the month and I’m going to be traveling during the second half. I’m probably gonna fail all these readathons, but I’m trying anyway!
There’s six challenges and I chose a book for each one of them. So here they are:
Enemies to Lovers: The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
Lucy and Joshua are competing for the same job after the companies where they worked merge. At the beginning they hate each other but they end up falling in love.
I have heard mixed things about this, some people love it and others have issues with it because of that, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to read it, but at the end, some people I trust really liked it so I’m giving it a chance!
Friends with Benefits: Dirty Rowdy Thing by Christina Lauren
Harlow and Finn were married for 12 hours after a trip to Las Vegas. They still see each other occasionally and they still have a lot of chemestry. When they see each other, they either end up fighting or having sex. Until it turns to more.
I’m a huge fan of Christina Lauren’s books, so I’m pretty sure I’m gonna enjoy this one. It’s the second book in the series and I haven’t read the first, but I think it’s not a big deal.
Fake Relationship: Big Rock by Lauren Blakely
A playboy, whose father needs him to cool it for a bit because of some conservative investors, asks his best friend/business partner to be his fiancée for one week and she agrees. Then all the pretending in public leads to something more.
I’m a bit nervous about this one, because the main guy (the description of the books is written from his pov) sounds like he’s a bit too cocky. I like cocky protagonist, don’t get me wrong, but he sounds like he may crossed the line to inssuferable. Also, that cover is SO BAD! Still, I’m willing to give it a chance.
Slow Burn: From Lukov with Love by Mariana Zapata
Jasmine and Ivan are figure skaters and they hate each other, but end up competing as a team and then their relationship evolves to something more.
I have heard from several people that Mariana Zapata is the queen of slow burn, so I knew I had to read one of her books for this challenge. Also, I love figure skating so I’m excited!
Sloan is one of the youngest black female surgeons and single mom to twin girls, she ends up hiring Rafe, a big, bearded and tattooed guy to be their nanny and things happen between them.
The premise of this one made me want to read it, thinking about this big, bearded and tattooed guy taking care of two little girls makes me smile everytime! I have heard this is fluffy and fun and it sounds like exactly what I need, especially since it seems like I’m gonna be extremely busy during the readathon.
Different Worlds: A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole
Ledi, a grad student in a STEM field, starts to receive emails telling her she is some sort of african princess, she ignores them until Prince Thabiso shows up to tell her they are supposed to get married.
I have heard great things about this one and I can’t wait to read it! A black women in STEM and an african prince falling in love?! What more could I ask for?!
