April Wrap Up 2018

Happy end of April everyone! I’m pleased to be able to say I had an awesome month. There were a few downs – but when doesn’t life have done? The month was primarily filled with ups. I just really enjoyed my time and felt as though I was making leaps and bounds with repairing my mental health (yay!).

I’m also happy to say I read nineteen books this month. That feels a lot more like myself, I was hoping for 20 but I’m pretty proud of this! I’m not sure how many I will read next month considering I go away for around five days in the middle of May, plus it’s the knuckle down in uni month. So, crushing my own expectations in April will mean I won’t be too crushed by myself next month!

On top of that, I also finished my reading goal for the year. I set my goal pretty low because I wasn’t sure where I would be health wise and studying wise. 50 books seemed achievable but it is now April and I’ve read sixty-six books. I’m pretty stoked if I do say so myself. How are your reading goals going? What did you set it as?

I figure I better stop blabbing now since you’re here to find out what I did read. I’ve linked to where I’ve written the reviews, a few books haven’t had their reviews published just yet but I linked to the Goodreads review I wrote. Stick around and those reviews will be coming very soon!

Goodreads blurb:

Jasmine Allen has many vices. Rahul Khan has just one: her.

For the last seven years, Rahul’s been Jasmine’s closest friend. Sure, he’s strong, sexy, and deliciously stern—but she doesn’t care about that. She certainly isn’t tempted by his wicked smile or his genuine sweetness. She can’t be. Because everything Jas touches turns to dust.

Rahul disagrees. Seven years ago, Jasmine touched him, and he’s still standing—still standing, and still hopelessly in love. When disaster drives Jasmine into his spare bedroom, Rahul prepares for a month of painful proximity to the woman he secretly wants.

But when he realises that Jasmine just might want him, too… all bets are off.

She’s wild. She’s reckless. She doesn’t know how to love, and she doesn’t intend to learn.

But she’s also his. And in this game of desire, Rahul’s playing to win.

Wanna Bet? is a steamy, standalone, BWAM romance. Warning: this book is 75,000 words of extreme pleasure, with NO cliffhangers, NO cheating, and a guaranteed HEA. Enjoy responsibly!

***Please be aware: this story contains themes of parental neglect and abandonment, parental death, and alcohol dependence that could trigger certain audiences.***
