This is my TBR list for November.
I kept it pretty small due to the holidays coming.
But hoping to read more than these four books.
Reviews to come on all of them!
Book 1. A Special Connection by Theresa Troutman (Current read)
NA Romance - A Special Connection
Meet Jake Lewis. His best friend is in love with his other best friend. Love is complicated! Like a story with a sexy unexpected twist?
Life has been a constant challenge for Jake Lewis. Left paralyzed emotionally and physically by a car accident, which killed his parents when he was just twelve years old, Jake struggles to be happy. His best friends, Rick Welsh and Samantha Andrews, are a couple who fight as passionately as they make up. This puts Jake in an awkward position.
Three friends who are as close as can be.
Rick Welsh, the hotshot basketball player, who hopes to leave college and go pro.
Samantha Andrews, the brainiac, blessed with common sense and beauty.
Jake Lewis, the crippled virgin, who believes no girl could love a damaged guy with a disability.
In despair, these friends share a moment that will forever change their lives.
Life is messy.
Love is complicated.
True love doesn’t always come wrapped in a pretty package with a bow on top.
Is it possible that the friend you never had sexual feelings for is the person who will touch your soul like no other?
Book 2. My Secret Summer by Theresa Troutman
“What if I come too fast? What if you don’t enjoy it? What if I suck?” Dylan asked.
“I think that’s my job,” I joked to lighten the mood.
Caitlin Conners is a loner; shy and artistic. Her only friend is her sister, Carly. When Carly dies in a car accident, Caitlin has never felt more alone. An overbearing mother makes her life impossible when she meets the boy next door, Dylan Rodgers. Dylan doesn’t fit in with the popular crowd either. He prefers skateboarding to football and is viewed by his fellow students as a pot head.
Dylan helps Caitlin deal with her grief and awakens her sexuality. Somehow these two misfits strike up a friendship and fall in love, while trying to keep their relationship a secret from Caitlin’s parents. Caitlin resorts to various methods to sneak out of the house to be with Dylan. As the stakes increase, emotions run high and passion ignites. The thrill of ‘getting away with it’ is so addictive and makes Caitlin feel invincible. How long can she get away with the lies before she is found out?
Book 3. Damaged Perfection
Guilt is dangerous.
It rules my life.
I am riddled with it.
After fifteen years, you would think it would lessen.
Drugs numb it, women relieve it.
But it always returns, stronger and heavier.
The light, it is refreshing.
It gets closer and I reach for it.
But it is always just out of my grasp.
Book 4. Whiter Than Snow by Matthew Eldridge
Whiter Than Snow is the suspense fully dark tale based on the true life of Snow White, as never told before. Because of the prophesies, Snow White is hidden from her true identity as a princess. Living as a servant in the king's cottage and enduring the jealous wrath of the sinister queen, she attracts the forbidden attention of the delicious Prince Philip of Spain. However, only after falling in love does she discover he’s to be engaged to another ruler, the Queen of England, Bloody Mary. If the two join kingdoms, the evil queen’s reign of terror and quest to eliminate Protestant Christians around the world would be unstoppable. But there is hope. If the prince discovers Snow White’s hidden identity as a princess, true love may stop the planned massacre. This isn’t an old tale told in a new way. This is the story uncovering deep truths about the real Snow White, Margarete, and her sacrificial love for the dear Prince Philip. Everything else is a fairy tale.
