Friday Meme’s~A Lady’s Code of Misconduct

BMR,Friday's MemeSince there are a few Friday Meme’s that I want to participate in I have decided to post them all in one post.

book beginnings memeBook Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. Take the first sentence of your current read and post it.

A DEAL WITH THE DEVIL…
Trapped in the countryside, facing an unwanted marriage and the theft of her fortune, Jane Mason is done behaving nicely. To win her freedom, she’ll strike a deal with the most dangerous man she knows—a rising star in politics, whose dark good looks mask an even darker heart.

…NEVER GOES TO PLAN.
The bitter past has taught Crispin Burke to trust no one. He’ll gladly help a lovely young heiress, provided she pays a price. Yet when a single mistake shatters his life, it is Jane who holds the key to his salvation. And in a world that no longer makes sense, Crispin slowly realizes that she may be the only thing worth fighting for…

I always like the mean guy turns nice after getting walloped…lol. 🙂

The first sensation was light. Red, the color of hellfire.

Then…weight. Weight compressing and lifting. Squeezing and relaxing.

Breathing. Air. Nose-throat-chest. A body-flesh, his own, his mind anchored within it.

He flexed his fingers. “Look!” The soft voice startled him. It came from nearby. “Did you see that? His hand…”

He is walking up from a coma. I am liked this one but the first 18% or so was a bit aggravating as it started off with him in a coma then it went back three months this forward two weeks, etc. Then finally settled into the story…I hate when they do that. 🙁

Friday 56

The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda @ Freda’s Voice. It’s like Tuesday  Teaser but you have a specific place in your read that you have to turn in your read (page 56 or 56%) to get your teaser.

“No sewing circle,” Crispin said, “could out do a club for the gossip offer.”

“And yet so much of that gossip has a way of becoming news,” Farnsworth drawled. “So tell me. Is it true? Have you disowned the bill?”

“If so, I can’t see how it should concern you.” Although at present Farnsworth looked ripe to shift from concern into fury.

“We had a deal, you and I,” the other man growled.

From 57% as I just couldn’t find anything real good on 56. I think this makes you curious to know what bill he is talking about and what deal was made. 🙂

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer.  Each week we are asked a question to answer so it reminds me a bit of FF and so I thought it made a good fit to my other Friday Memes.

How far in advance do you read the books you have scheduled for review?

This is where I admit I rarely get a review book read before it comes out and more or less it gets done after. 🙁  I do try and read them before they come out but I am so behind that some most just don’t make it. Every year I say I am going to get more organized and every year I fail. Someone come and organize my life please. 🙂

  1. I need to get better at reading review books before they come out but I am getting them closer (in some cases). It helps when we read books together for our feature because that tends to motivate me more.

      I rarely get a book in before it’s out on the market. 🙁 I get too many and can’t fit them all in, or forget about them when I get them way ahead of time. Our feature does help get some in on time or at least close to time. 🙂

  2. Yeah I’m not a fan of all that time line jumping either. This does look good though and I’ve heard some praise for Duran lately.

    If you find someone to organize your life can you send them to me after your done? I have big dreams of being so ahead but right now I’m lucky if I’m more than a few days ahead!

      It’s been pretty good, though the end is dragging a bit but I am always like hat with romances…lol. It’s like okay lets get that HEA done and over….lol.

  3. At least it finally settled into the present. I’m not crazy about the jumping around either. A few authors I’ve read managed to pull it off nicely though. Especially the Onyx Webb series.

    I tend to be about a month ahead reading review books. I’d like to be further ahead but sometimes I get books with short times until publication date which wrecks my plans. I have been curious about this book. I enjoy historical romances. I have a cozy this week – Purr M for Murder by T. C. LoTempio. Happy reading!

  5. Lovely cover and interesting excerpts! Thanks for sharing.

    As for reading review books, I try to read them 2-4 weeks ahead. Luckily, I tend to get them way ahead, so I can plan the schedule.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

      My problem is I get them way ahead and then forget about them. I am trying to get more organized this year but it’s not working so well…lol.

  6. I know what you mean about getting organised. I know use Word’s sticky notes on my desktop with a list of all the Netgalley arcs in date order as to when they are due to come out. It’s helped me keep more on track with reviews for my arcs, which I like to post on or very near the release day.
    I like the sound of this one – the writing seems very strong. As a real sucker for timeslip/fractured narratives I quite enjoy books that hop around, so long as they take me along with them and don’t strand me in Confusion Alley…

  7. I think I am still in the feeling guilty stage of receiving arcs. I couldn’t cope with reviewing them after their release date 😀
