Sometimes I just want to pick up a book and read it because I can. There's something so fulfilling in losing myself to the pure pleasure of reading. Over the course of my summer, I've been doing a ton of pleasure reading. It's been so enjoyable and relaxing.
Today I wanted to share with you all my latest obsession: Christina Lauren. This writing duo captured my interest last year when I first read Sweet Filthy Boy, part of the Wild Seasons series. These books are definitely very adult, but very addicting as well. I love the way they write, telling a story almost as if you're watching a movie. Each voice was so much fun to follow, and losing myself for hours while reading on the couch was just the ticket I needed to escape.
The latest, Dark Wild Night, publishes in September, and I was lucky enough to receive an early copy from the publisher. Upon finishing it, I have found myself recommending this series to every adult romance reader I know. I've even started over from the beginning and reread each story, wanting to relive these moments.
So what are these stories about, and why do I find myself so engrossed with them? It follows a group of girl friends, each book spotlighting a different one, as they embark on their early adult years and finding that transition between college and the working world. In the first book, Sweet Filthy Boy, they take an adventure to Las Vegas to celebrate their college graduation -- thinking a few nights of gambling, drinking, and late night dancing is just what they need. What they don't expect is to find themselves waking up married to a complete stranger, with a bad case of "what the crap happened last night??".
Each young woman has a story to tell, as well as a sexy young man to divert their plans. Though their stories can be predictable, they're still very much entertaining -- and oh so hot! The writing duo of Christina Lauren has definitely made a fan out of this reader. If you're in the mood for pure pleasure reading, then I highly recommend picking up this series. It's every bit fun and sexy, with laugh out loud moments, and an adventure worth falling for.
