Book Club Friday

Hey y'all,

It has been a while since I have done a Book Club link-up post so I figured I would post about the last three books I have finished reading. 

The Lady is a Vamp

I love the Argenau series by Lynsay Sands and if you love paranormal romance start this series right away. The basis of the first four books is a family and all of the sibling's love stories. It is great especially since the mother is HYSTERICAL! Think in your face matchmaker. This is the story of Jeanne Louise and she has been around since day one and finally in the 17th book of the series she has her chance at love. I was so excited for this book and as always Sands did not disappoint. Here is the synopsis from GoodReads:

Kidnapped When Jeanne Louise Argeneau left work, she never thought she'd end up tied down by a good-looking mortal. More attracted than annoyed, she quickly realizes there is more to her abductor than meets the eye.

One desperate act leads to . . .

Love? Paul Jones has need of a vampire, and only Jeanne Louise will do. He just has to convince this beauty of a Vamp to help him . . . never imagining that he would fall in love. But with the immortal world's answer to law enforcement hunting them, their time together is running out . . . and Paul and Jeanne Louise will need to risk everything to spend an eternity together.

An Offer You Can't Refuse

This was the second book I had picked up by Jill Mansell and I didn't love it like I did, Rumor Has It. This is the story of a second chance. The main character in an act to help her family breaks up with the boy she has been seeing right as he leaves for university. However, the story continues when they see each other years later. Here is the synopsis:

Lola has no intention of accepting when her boyfriend Dougie's snobbish mother offers her £10,000 to break up with him. Then she discovers a secret that makes her think again. Dougie would probably have broken up with her in the long run, and this way she can help one of the people she loves most in the world.

Ten years later, though, when Lola meets Dougie again, her feelings for him are as strong as ever. But she broke Dougie's heart – and he's about to discover that she was paid to do it. She can never tell him the truth, so can she get him back? Well, Lola's very attractive and very persuasive. But even she's got her work cut out this time…

L.A. Candy

I wanted to enjoy this book since I love Lauren Conrad and the story isn't horrible it just seemed to drag and the ending didn't have me looking up the second book so I think I will leave the series here. I know many people who enjoyed the book but it wasn't for me. 
In L.A. CANDY, nineteen-year-old Jane Roberts moves to L.A. and unexpectedly becomes the star of a reality T.V. show. With fame comes wealth, hot clothes and even hotter love interests -- and Jane′s lapping it all up with her eclectic entourage of pals who are always up for a wild night out and the chance to get a piece of her spotlight. But soon Jane realizes everyone wants something from her, and nothing is what it seems to be.

L.A. CANDY is a fast-paced, honest and entertaining fictional account of what it′s like to come of age in Hollywood while starring in a reality TV show, written by a girl who has experienced it all firsthand: Lauren Conrad.

Peace and Blessings,


  1. I did enjoy L.A. Candy, and actually bought the sequel on sale, although have yet to read it. What I enjoyed about it was getting an idea of what it was like to film the Hills since I used to love it when it first started.

  2. Oohh thanks for sharing! That first book looks really good... I haven't heard of that series, so I'll have to check it out!!

  3. Is it embarassing to say Im reading Fifty Shades of Grey? I started it last night and Im already on page 300!

  4. The Argeneau series and LA Candy are on my to-read list! I had to take a break from all my paranormal romance and my streak has been mostly dystopia lately. Have you read Anita Blake or Black Dagger Brotherhood?


Thanks for the sweet note!
