{Short & Tweet} Review: Sweet Filthy Boy By (Wild Seasons #1) by Christina Lauren


Inspired by Midnight Book Girl, Short & Tweet reviews are my way of taking time off from the daily blogger grind for the hellish month of August while still keeping you posted about what I’m reading.

Because I can't be confined to 140 characters - expect twitlonger length reviews lol



Sweet Filthy Boy (Wild Seasons #1) by Christina Lauren

Source: Purchased

One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like him.

But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation—and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out—Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume—her sweet, filthy fling—to France for the summer and just…play.

When feelings begin to develop behind the provocative roles they take on, and their temporary masquerade adventures begin to feel real, Mia will have to decide if she belongs in the life she left because it was all wrong, or in the strange new one that seems worlds away.

The boy is indeed sweet and filthy! I needed to really let go of logic and reality to enjoy this one but I liked the twist on the married in vegas trope. I like you – let’s STAY married!

This book was non stop sex and that’s just not my favorite thing. What’s the relationship without the sex??

Still, it was fun and admittedly hot - but I didn't love it.

Blogger ramblings… taking a little break

I’m taking a bit of a blogging break for the month of August.

You probably won’t even notice because I’ll still be visiting blogs and have reviews up but most of them will be something called Short & Tweet Reviews – inspired by Kate at Midnight Book Girl. I tried to stay within the confines of the 140 character tweet but they’re more like twitlonger /mini reviews. But Short & Tweet sounds better and I made a button and everything soooo… hehe

It seemed like an easier way to talk about what I was reading without being stuck at the computer. I can take a break from the annoying, stressful parts of blogging, yet still be around.

I hope you are all having a safe and happy summer!

Here are a few of the books I’m hoping to get to during my break. My husband is on vacation so I might not even end up reading so we’ll see. No pressure FTW!!!

Tune in Tuesday: Swear and Shake, Priory, Sylvan Esso


Tune In Tuesday is a weekly feature in which bloggers get to showcase another one of their loves, music! The feature was originally created and hosted by Ginger over at GReads! but can now be found over at Kate’s Tales of Books and Bands.


To be honest, there hasn’t been anything that really stood out to me this week but here are a few offbeat songs that I like…what do you think? Have you been listening to anything good?

Swear and Shake – These White Walls

Priory –Weekend

Sylan Esso – Coffee
