Description:

One Player tamed. One nerd girl satisfied. And one more major life decision to make. When Will fell for Hanna, her quirky sense of humor and fierce dedication to her career were part of the attraction. (Not to mention her coy newbie attitude toward sex and her willingness to let him teach her everything.) But when the job offers start rolling in for her—and oh, they do—Hanna has trouble deciding what she wants, where they should live, and how much she should burden Will with the decision. Magic between the sheets is only one part of a relationship…getting on the same page is quite another altogether.

When Ruby Miller’s boss announces he’s sending her on an extended business trip to New York City, she’s shocked.

The part that’s throwing her is where she’ll be spending a month up close and personal working alongside—and staying in a hotel with—Niall Stella, her firm’s top urban planning executive and The Hottest Man Alive. Despite her ongoing crush, Ruby is certain Niall barely knows she’s alive…until their flirty overnight flight makes him sit up and take notice.

Not one for letting loose and breaking rules, recently divorced Niall would describe himself as hopeless when it comes to women. But even he knows outgoing California-girl Ruby is a breath of fresh air. Once she makes it her mission to help the sexy Brit loosen his tie, there’s no turning back. Thousands of miles from London, it’s easy for the lovers to play pretend. But when the trip is over, will the relationship they’ve built up fall down?

May | Wrap Up

I mean we’re still in June so we are definitely doing better than the April wrap post that only went a couple of weeks ago, right?! May was an interesting reading month, one in which I was attempting to read as much as possible but realistically thinking I wouldn’t finish much at all. The Avengers Readathon was taking place in the first half of the month and Emma and I held our very first readathon called Miserables May. The point of it was to read Les Miserables which is not exactly a short or easy to read book, so with that in mind, I think I had a really good month, don’t you?

Les Misérables | Review

Title: Les Misérables

Author: Victor Hugo

Rating: 2.5 Stars

Dates read: 01 May 19 – 31 May 19

Publication date: 1862

Publisher: Canterbury Classics

Genre(s): Classic

Description:

Victor Hugo’s tale of injustice, heroism and love follows the fortunes of Jean Valjean, an escaped convict determined to put his criminal past behind him. But his attempts to become a respected member of the community are constantly put under threat: by his own conscience, when, owing to a case of mistaken identity, another man is arrested in his place; and by the relentless investigations of the dogged policeman Javert. It is not simply for himself that Valjean must stay free, however, for he has sworn to protect the baby daughter of Fantine, driven to prostitution by poverty. A compelling and compassionate view of the victims of early nineteenth-century French society, Les Misérables is a novel on an epic scale, moving inexorably from the eve of the battle of Waterloo to the July Revolution of 1830.
