A couple of weeks ago…around Valentine’s Day, I entered into a contest that was held on Kennedy Ryan’s facebook page. We were asked why we read romance. I can’t remember what exactly what I said, but it was basically this:
I read romance because it gives me hope that love is real and not just a word that is thrown around. I read romance because I love getting lost in the stories. I read romance because I love the warm and fuzzies that I (mostly) get at the end.
Surprisingly, I won the contest!
Today, my prizes arrived. I got a cute tote bag from Forever Publishing, and four paperback romance novels.
Of course, I was more than happy to get my little ginger hands on the books. Do you see those covers!? I’m in love.
All four books are by author’s that I’ve never heard of or read before (which is SO SAD). I wasted zero time getting comfortable on my couch and curling up with one of these. Which one did I start with? I picked the one second from the right — Undone by Shannon Richard. I won’t say too much about it here, because I’m fixing to write up my review on it. But I will say… that I started it about 3pm this afternoon…and seven hours later? I’m done with it. I devoured this book. I can’t wait to read the rest. I think I’ll read the one on the far left next. Bringing Home The Bad Boy by Jessica Lemmon. Or maybe I’ll read Only With You by Lauren Layne… Unleashed by Rachel Lacey? Hrmm.
If they’re as fabulous as Undone was, then I really scored!
Thank you to Kennedy for hosting the cool contest and to Forever Publishing for sending the awesome books and tote bag! I’ll definitely be using it.
