Recommendations from Peggy for March 2015.

In order to bring some more variety to my blog, I have asked some of my bookish friends to tell about the books they have in the past month, and to give us a recommendation. Today’s post is made by Peggy from Belgium.


I have read 7 novels in the past month, and the 3 books I enjoyed the most are:

1. The Deal – Elle Kennedy

2. Neanderthal seeks human – Penny Reid

3. Heaven and hell – Kristen Ashley

The one I can recommend to all Aurian’s readers is:

Penny Reid – Neanderthal seeks human

There are three things you need to know about Janie Morris:
She is incapable of engaging in a conversation without volunteering TMTI (Too Much Trivial Information), especially when she is unnerved,
No one unnerves her more than Quinn Sullivan, and
She doesn't know how to knit.
After losing her boyfriend, apartment, and job in the same day, Janie Morris can't help wondering what new torment fate has in store. To her utter mortification, Quinn Sullivan- aka Sir McHotpants- witnesses it all then keeps turning up like a pair of shoes you lust after but can't afford. The last thing she expects is for Quinn - the focus of her slightly, albeit harmless, stalkerish tendencies - to make her an offer she can't refuse.

Penny Reid was a new writer to me but after reading ‘The hooker and the hermit’ (a book that she wrote together with L.H. Cosway) and that I really loved and enjoyed! I was very curious about her own books.

‘Neanderthal seeks human’ is the first book in the series ‘The Knitting in the City’. Janie Mooris is having the worst day of her life! First she discovers that her boyfriend has cheated on her. They were together for a couple of years and she thought that everything was fine. So this not only means the end of their relationship but also moving out from the apartment that they share. Then she arrives at work, only to get informed that she’s fired! Can her day get any worse?!?! The answer to that is YES!! Because the security man who will escort her out of the building is none other than ‘Sir McHotpants’ aka Quinn Sullivan. The guy that she has been ogling for the last few weeks. Talk about humiliation! Janie thinks that’s the end of it. But a short time later she meets him again. And even when she engages in a conversation with him full of trivial information (one of her ticks), he remains interested and he even helps her find a new job.

A job in the same firm as where he works, so they will meet again. And the more they meet, the stronger the attraction is getting between them. Then they have to go on a business trip to Las Vegas where something happens (something that involve poker, clothes and stripping ;) ) After Las Vegas they start a relationship. But Janie remains uncertain. Is this relationship a good idea? And then there’s the appearance of her younger sister that she hasn’t seen in many years and who always bring trouble with her. Luckily Janie can always count on her knitting group to help her with her feelings and worries.

If you love humor in a book then this book is something for you. It had me laughing and at the same time wondering about Quinn ‘McHotpants’ Sullivan. A man who stays a mystery for a long time. It’s always fun to read about a woman who has great friends who she can share her problems and emotions with. I had really fun with this book. For those of you who love erotica in their books, I will tell you now this book isn’t for you. Although you have a hot before and a satisfied after, there’s is not a really love scene in this book. But I, personally, didn’t miss it much because I enjoyed the story so much.

And the best part!! …..…The writer decided a few weeks ago to put this book out for FREE!!! So if you think this book looks fun, go for it 

Before I go I also want to recommend ‘The deal’ from Elle Kennedy to the readers that love new adult books. This is the first book that I read from Elle Kennedy and I really, really loved it. This is her first new adult book that she has written (she has written other books but I haven’t read those yet). So if you love new adult – ice hockey – bad boys – a deal, you really have to try this book.

And that’s it for me. Till next time x

  1. What a coincidence, Blodeuedd. And? Did you like it? :)

  2. I don't know the writers you recommend, but The Deal sounds funny even though it's a first person narration.
    I've bought (for free!) the Reid book and who knows, someday I have the time to read it. ;-)

  3. I know what you mean, Maia! There are so many books I still have to read. Glad to read that you 'bought' the Reid book. Enjoy it.

    1. I was curious and started it. I like the writing style, even though it was first person. But I have to admit all her bad luck in one day was a bit too much. About three of them would be bad enough, the rest was overkill. I'Il probably read it one day, as I like the rest.
