Key Lime Pie Murder (Hannah Swensen #9) by Joanne Fluke|381 pages -I was bored to death with the first 100 pages and what keeps me going are the recipes. The crime was introduced halfway through the book and I seriously need to reread few pages because I can't remember who is the victim then when I finally found out, I was like, "OK?" I couldn't care to be honest. There's no character building. I was surprised that there's a murder in the plot. I really thought I was reading another book. The characters go into too much detail about trivial things and it's just so annoying. A tough one to finish. I felt like the story took too long to get to the point and wasn't engaging. I can only recommend this for the recipes.
The Ground Rules (The Ground Rules Trilogy #1) by Roya Carmen|284 pages-I have never read anything quite like it. It's unconventional, It was taboo, it was intense, it was provocative and utterly addicting. This book supposed to feel wrong, but it didn’t. It was forbidden and erotic. You have to experience for yourself. It kept me at the edge of my seat right from the start. Couple swapping. Sex. No emotional attachments Is it possible to have a sexual relationship with someone without becoming emotionally attached? I know that this is going to end badly. I mean, how can it not. This book isn’t for the faint of heart. An absolute train wreck that I couldn't get enough of. The writing was fantastic and every single character was likable. It was a good read and I highly recommend it.
