Thank you for Listening by Julia Whelan

I'm in the minority here... but can't do it...58 of the longest pages I have had to read... There is no way I can make it to 300... 1) TOO MUCH... too many sub-relationships... too many subplots... too many "trying to be funny and witty" but really flat and dull. The father /daughter relationship... big secret of why she stopped being an actress... the best friends... the never ending trying to make this story work... I'm moving on... 2) everything is awkward and choppy... and tries to be so sophisticated and expensive... doone...when Swanee ( insert eye roll) says " no seriously, what are you talking about? " I thought.... exactly... what the heck is the book talking about?

A Governess's Guide to Passion and Peril (Ladies Most Scandalous #4)A Governess's Guide to Passion and Peril by Manda Collins
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was a cute story. I thought it was entertaining. I thought the characters were a little flat and at times boring. The mystery element was a great driving plot. overall a pleasant read.

Archaeologist Dr. Socorro “Corrie” Mej√≠a has a bone to pick. Literally.  

It’s been Corrie’s life goal to lead an expedition deep into the Mexican jungle in search of the long-lost remains of her ancestor, Chimalli, an ancient warrior of the Aztec empire. But when she is invited to join an all-expenses-paid dig to do just that, Corrie is sure it’s too good to be true...and she’s right.

As the world-renowned expert on Chimalli, Corrie should be leading the expedition, not sharing the glory with her disgustingly handsome nemesis. But Dr. Ford Matthews has been finding new ways to best her since they were in grad school. Ford certainly isn’t thrilled either—with everything going on in his life right now, the last thing he needs is a reminder of their rocky past.

But as the dig begins, it becomes clear they’ll need to work together after learning that a thief is lurking around their campsite. Now they are forced to keep their discoveries—and lingering attraction—under wraps. With money-hungry artifact smugglers, the Mexican authorities, and the lies between them closing in, there’s only one way this all ends—explosively.

Stuck-Up Suit by Vi Keeland

Stuck-Up SuitStuck-Up Suit by Vi Keeland
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

In the words of Taylor Swift, "it's me, I am the problem".
I just could not get into this story. It's true... that the this has great reviews but at my age lol i just don't get these characters. I tried reading Keeland before... but here characters always seem overly dramatic and self-absorbed. The women are always "so tough" when no... not really... Having to endure this book for 6 more hours is just not a bargain I am willing to make.
