Not much happening today with books. BookBub has a couple of suggestions we’ve seen before, which is actually good for me right now. I don’t need any more books at the moment. I will share them again though, just to have something to say.
I do remember reading these, I liked them both but the second one was my favorite.
See Me : A sweet, faith-filled fake engagement story
It’s love at first sight when reclusive inventor Jesse Buckley meets unemployed music teacher Bronte, moonlighting as a take-out delivery driver. Okay, so splattering guacamole and sour cream over them both wasn’t the best way to impress the woman he hopes to make his wife, but from here on the only way is up, right? Still, maybe offering her a job as his chauffeur and personal assistant wasn’t one of his best ideas.
It means he’ll see her almost every day, sure. It also means, as one of his employees, she’s out-of-bounds. Besides, though he’s had to admit to his failing eyesight, he hasn’t told her yet that one day he’ll become completely blind. And he’s managed to keep the little fact he’s one of the wealthy owners of the business a secret, letting her believe he’s just another staff member.
Desperate to untangle the mess a con man left her life and her finances in, Bronte gratefully said yes to the job Jesse offered her. Spending most of her time with a sweet, kind, handsome guy she could easily fall head-over-heels for wasn’t supposed to be part of the deal. After all, the last man she thought loved her stole everything she had. Her home, her inheritance, her music, her faith, and most of all, her trust in her own judgment. A new love isn’t on her wish list, especially when she can’t shake the feeling Jesse’s hiding something from her.
What neither counted on was Jesse’s ailing grandmother and her determination to see him settled with the right woman. First she beguiles them into a fake engagement neither will admit they want to make real. Then she maneuvers them into accompanying her on a trip to Chapel Cove to visit his former PA, Nai. Could it be, the spring vacation in a small Oregon seaside town will bring love, renewed faith, and God’s sweet healing for them all?
To Steal a Heart (The Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency Book #1)
After a childhood as a street thief, Gabriella Goodhue thought she’d put her past behind her until a fellow resident at her boardinghouse is unjustly accused of theft. In the middle of breaking into a safe that holds the proof to prove her friend’s innocence, Gabriella is interrupted by Nicholas Quinn, the man she once considered her best friend–until he abandoned her.
After being taken under the wing of a professor who introduced him into society and named him as heir, Nicholas is living far removed from his childhood life of crime. As a favor to a friend, Nicholas agreed to help clear the name of an innocent woman, never imagining he’d be reunited with the girl he thought lost to him forever.
As Gabriella and Nicholas are thrown together into one intrigue after another, their childhood affection grows into more, but their newfound feelings are tested when truths about their past are revealed and danger follows their every step.
A large chunk of my time today was spent on YouTube. It was good in a way, but in some ways it was a waste of time. The content was repetitive in many cases. I can’t say it added value to my life but I enjoyed my time. It’s addictive which is the whole point I’m guessing. There are some sites that do add value to my life, I need to develop the habit of spending more time with them and less on the other ones.
At this point I’d better go read a book for a while. Get this current one finished, I’m so close to the end.
If I can get it done then I get to see what comes up next. I don’t take them in order, That’s no fun. It’s more fun to browse and see what catches my interest. I think I would avoid reading if I had to stick to the order they arrived. Being forced to read something sounds like drudgery.
This way it’ll be a nice (hopefully) surprise.
