June 2017 Wrap Up + Top Pick

Hello everyone and Happy July!

A new month is starting so you know what time it is! It’s that time of the month to talk about my favorite read of last month and making a wrap up of all the books I’ve read this past June.

I am so excited because summer is here (YAY!!!) and it’s my favorite time of the year! I hope you bookies had a fantastic reading this June because, as always, there was so many awesome releases! I do hope I am keeping up with the blog and even though I have not as much time to read, I am still enjoying many books!

Now let’s get on to this Junes’s Top Pick and Wrap Up!

My June 2017 TOP PICK is.. Tycoon by Katy Evans!
(Standalone)

34787781

He wasn’t always this rich. This hot. This difficult.
Aaric Christos was a guy who protected me. Wanted me. Maybe even loved me.

That man is gone.
In his place is the most powerful real estate tycoon in the city.
He’s a cold, ruthless, aggressive businessman.

The only one who can save me and my startup from ruin.
It takes every ounce of courage to put my pride aside and ask for his help.
I didn’t expect him to offer it easily.

And he doesn’t.
Instead, he vets me harder than he’s vetted anyone.

Don’t invest in what you don’t know, he says.
He’s assessing every piece of me, to the point I’ve never felt so bare.

I yearn for the boy I once knew, whose touch once craved me.

Putting it all on the line will be worth it, I tell myself.
Until I realize—too late—that some risks are not worth taking.


Fantastic plot, great characters and the perfect couple! I literally devoured this in one sitting because it’s just THAT good.

4 stars for ROOMMATES WITH BENEFITS by Nicole Williams!

Nicole never fails to engage me in her wonderfully emotional stories! Roommates with Benefits was a really good read to me: it has fantastic writing and strong characters and it was funny, sexy and of course, get ready for all the feels too! If you want something lighter by Nicole, this is a great choice!

3 stars for PORN STAR by Laurelin Paige & Sierra Simone!

I was excited about this release but a little bit scared because of the mixed reviews. I do have to say, I really enjoyed the emotional and sexy part of the story but I have to confess I did not have much of a connection with the MC’s at the beginning of the story. I did not get their behavior but still it was an enjoyable read!

4.5 stars for GOOD BOY by Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy!

I love, looooooooooove this duo of authors! I adored their MM romance collaboration and this spin-off series is no different! Blake and Jess are such a cute and hilarious couple you cannot stop yourself from falling in love with them. Good Boy is so funny, engaging and sexy!

4 stars for HOT COP by Laurelin Paige & Sierra Simone!

Yes, thank God I decided to give a go again to this great authors! Hot Cop was definitely better for me than Porn Star was. This one has nothing to do with the other one (both are standalones) and I can assure you ladies that Officer Kelly is hot as hell!

4.5-5 stars for I KNEW YOU WERE TROUBLE by Lauren Layne!

Lauren’s Oxford series is one of my all-time favorites and this new enemies-to-lovers addition was no exception! I Knew You Were Trouble was absolutely amazing! I just adore everything this woman writes and she is definitely killing it this year with her releases.

4.5 stars for THE KNOCKED UP PLAN by Lauren Blakely!

It seems I have a huge love for all the Laurens lol! When it comes to hilarious and oh-so-hot-and-cute romcoms, Lauren Blakely does not disappoint! I loved the whole baby theme in this novel and how it developed fantastically. I do believe this one is one of the sweetest stories this woman has written!

5 stars for THE CATCH by K. Bromberg!

If I had to choose another of my favorites this month of June, it would be this one, for sure! The conclusion of Easton and Scout’s love story was brilliant! Lots of dramatic moments, angst, emotions all over the place and, of course, an outstanding couple! And that ending! Loved it!

4.5 stars for WEDLOCKED by Ella Frank & Brooke Blaine!

Finally I decided to read the conclusion of one of the hottest MM couples in the book world! Dylan and Ace’s happy ever after is just beautiful! With the same smoking hot chemistry, these two gave us an emotional ending (with a wonderful wedding!) that made me melt all over the place!

4 stars for WHERE I BELONG by J. Daniels!

J. Daniels is quickly becoming another of my favorites writers. She made me fall in love with Reese so hard and Ben definitely did not disappoint (I just love her alphas!!). I got this as a freebie and it is the first book of Jessica’s Alabama Summer series. I really enjoyed this enemies-to-lovers story: it was funny, cute and oh-so-hot!

4.5 stars for LOVING THE WHITE LIAR by Kate Stewart!

And my last read this June was this brilliant love story! Kate is one of my favorite authors and I knew she would deliver greatly. I got Loving the White Liar FREE with her newsletter and it’s just an amazing book. It’s a little bit different from the other stuff I’ve read by her but it has that unique touch that stole my heart!

MY REVIEW | GOODREADS | AMAZON | KATE’S NEWSLETTER


And that is all for this last month, bookies! I hope you find some amazing reads within all of these ones! And I can’t wait to read a whole lot this summer! Feel free to tell me your favorites or any recommendations down in the comments!!

Happy reading!
