It's been a while...

So I've been missing in action for a few weeks.


I was having some personal problems and long story short, I'm just now starting to bounce back.

But enough about my sob story.

This past week I read two books. One's been out the other is fairly new to the bookie scene.

First up, something old:

It's a night like any other on board the Icarus. Then, catastrophe strikes: the massive luxury spaceliner is yanked out of hyperspace and plummets into the nearest planet. Lilac LaRoux and Tarver Merendsen survive. And they seem to be alone. 

Lilac is the daughter of the richest man in the universe. Tarver comes from nothing, a young war hero who learned long ago that girls like Lilac are more trouble than they’re worth. But with only each other to rely on, Lilac and Tarver must work together, making a tortuous journey across the eerie, deserted terrain to seek help. 

Then, against all odds, Lilac and Tarver find a strange blessing in the tragedy that has thrown them into each other’s arms. Without the hope of a future together in their own world, they begin to wonder—would they be better off staying here forever?

Everything changes when they uncover the truth behind the chilling whispers that haunt their every step. Lilac and Tarver may find a way off this planet. But they won’t be the same people who landed on it.

And now something fairly new:

When the powerful, sexy, and gorgeous Greek billionaire Mykolas Sallis finds a misplaced cellphone and reads its messages, he becomes intrigued with its owner, a woman who seems to possess the rare combination of beauty, wit, and lots of snappy comebacks.

13:15 How about going for a movie tomorrow night?

13:16 Thomas, you're a good guy, so I'm going to tell you the truth once and for all.

13:17 What is it?

13:18 I'm a lesbian. I want your d*ck - but not for the reasons you're hoping for.

When curvy 24-year-old schoolteacher Velvet Lambert speaks with the Greek billionaire the first time, she knows right away she's out of her league. She does her snarky best to resist, but in the end she still finds herself saying 'yes' to a marriage of convenience, pretending she isn't head over heels with him, and trying not to lose hope even if she knows Mykolas only sees her as a prized possession.
