My Weekly Bookishness ~ 2/12/2021

All things bookish!

What I Read:

You can read the blurb and my review HERE!


What I'm Reading:


A computer geek, an Army Ranger assigned to get close to her, and the lies that could end everything before it begins.

Mia Milan jumps at the chance to work as a computer security specialist in Miami. Installing software for a shipping company on the east coast sounds more like a paid vacation. She doesn’t realize her new boss, Harrison is a known transporter for human traffickers.

Ex-Army Ranger, Noah Wolf and his team with the Guardian Group think Mia knows exactly what Harrison does, and that she’s helping him secure his computer network. They think this might be their chance to finally bring the man down—all they need is for Mia to turn on Harrison.

But things aren’t what they appear and Noah’s feelings for Mia soon put the mission in jeopardy.

First Lines:

Worst assignment ever.  Those three words had been on repeat the moment Noah Wolf had stepped inside the Miami Beach dance club an hour ago in the hopes that the woman he was tracking would show up.

56%/Page 56

While Mia grabbed a few things at her hotel, Noah made a few phone calls and found a house with a private beach he could rent for the day.


What I'll (Probably) Read Next:


Trouble. She doesn’t need his kind of trouble…

The sheriff of Masterson County had always meant trouble—especially for the Tylers of Tyler Township.

The last thing Phoebe Tyler needs is the sheriff complicating her life.

She has to focus on helping her widowed father run their struggling ranch and raise her younger brothers. When the sheriff shows up with her teenage brother, Phoebe knows more problems are right behind him.

He has a job to do…

Sheriff Joel Masterson has an entire county depending on him to keep them safe.

He doesn’t need more trouble with the rabble-rousing Tylers. But once he gets a good look at the eldest Tyler daughter, things get complicated. Real complicated—real quick.

Now Joel doesn’t mind trouble—at least…not Phoebe’s kind.

But trouble has a way of finding all the Tylers sooner or later. Phoebe is no exception.

But this time the sheriff might not be enough to keep Phoebe safe, after all…


What I Can't Wait To Read:


Luke Delacroix has the reputation of a charming man-about-town in Gilded Age Washington, DC. In reality, he is secretly carrying out an ambitious agenda in Congress. His current mission is to thwart the reelection of Congressman Clyde Magruder, his only real enemy in the world.

But trouble begins when Luke meets Marianne Magruder, the congressman's only daughter, whose job as a government photographer gives her unprecedented access to sites throughout the city. Luke is captivated by Marianne's quick wit and alluring charm, leading them both into a dangerous gamble to reconcile their feelings for each other with Luke's driving passion for vital reforms in Congress.

Can their newfound love survive a political firestorm, or will three generations of family rivalry drive them apart forever?


What I Was Reading 5 Years Ago:

Originally a feature called Last Year I Was Reading created by Maria from ReadingMaria
Literary Feline liked it enough to continue, but has tweaked it
 to feature Five Years Ago I Was Reading.

Q.  What book or series can you see getting made into a movie and not being horribly re-written? (submitted by SJ @ Airin' My Dirty Laundry

A.  I can' honestly say that a certain book or series could be made into a movie without being horribly re-written!  So many books are unrecognizable when they become movies.  It would depend on the writers, I think.


Bookishly Yours,

Linking up to:


  1. The Ranger's Chance looks interesting. The quotes are good ones. Have a great weekend!

  2. I like the idea of sharing books I was reading at a set point in the past. Thanks for sharing that idea. My highlighted book this week here

  3. Great looking books and tempting excerpts! Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  4. I like the excerpts from your current read, and I am intrigued by The Prince Spies. Enjoy!

  5. My first line is from Shadows of the White City by Jocelyn Green:
    Chapter One. Chicago. Friday, August 4, 1893
    Sylvie hadn’t always leapt to the worst possible conclusion.

  6. I'm curious to know more about why he is tracking some woman. Happy weekend!

  7. The Ranger's Chance sounds good! I hope you are enjoying it. Love the cover of Sweet Olive. Thanks for sharing what you were reading five years ago! I couldn't think of a book that stood out to me for this week's BBHOP either. Have a great weekend!

    1. I think "Hollywood" tends to mess up books and I would rather see a movie that I hadnt' read the book first.

  8. Love The Ranger's Chance cover, and it also sounds very good - that first line is really grabbing. Here's my post for today.

  9. Happy Friday! My first line is from "Cast the First Stone" by David James Warren:

    "It's the regrets that keep me awake."

  10. Woah! Now those are some interesting sounding books!

  11. On my blog I shared the first line from Just Look Up by Courtney Walsh.
    "Just Breathe."
    Happy Valentines and Happy Reading ❤

  12. Prince of Spies seems interesting! Happy reading this week and stay safe!

    Happy Valentines day to you!

  13. It looks like you have lots of lovely fiction lined up for the coming days and weeks. I hope you enjoy them all.

    I'm generally terribly disappointed with books made into movies. It works best when I see a movie from a good book that I have not already read first.

    Have a great week!

    1. I agree! I'd rather see a movie that I hadn't read the book. That might not be popular by oh well...

  14. The Ranger's Chance looks and sounds good, I enjoy a romantic suspense story like that.

  15. These books all sound good. I've been in the mood to read some romances lately. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  16. I like the opening of that book. From the cover and title, you know he wouldn't like an assignment at a dance club.

  17. The Ranger's Chance seems like the book I'd most likely pick up. I like reading about geeky heroines. Hope you enjoy your new books and have a great week.

  18. Horse on the cover - I like the look of Seeking the Sheriff.
    Enjoy all your reading!
