Tag Tuesday – Mid Year Book Freak Out Tag

Hello, wonderlandians. It’s July. Where has this year gone? I have a great tag for you today.
Got the questions from YA Bookaholic though it looks like they have not posted for a good two years. Although, I have been seeing this all over booktube and the blogs. So I wanted to give it a try. Plus I know it July. Don’t yell at me.
1. Best Book You’ve Read So Far in 2018?
I am stuck between two books.
King of Wall Street
King of Wall Street by [Bay, Louise]

THE KING OF WALL STREET IS BROUGHT TO HIS KNEES BY AN AMBITIOUS BOMBSHELL.

I keep my two worlds separate.

At work, I’m King of Wall Street. The heaviest hitters in Manhattan come to me to make money. They do whatever I say because I’m always right. I’m shrewd. Exacting. Some say ruthless.

At home, I’m a single dad trying to keep his fourteen year old daughter a kid for as long as possible. If my daughter does what I say, somewhere there’s a snowball surviving in hell. And nothing I say is ever right.

When Harper Jayne starts as a junior researcher at my firm, the barriers between my worlds begin to dissolve. She’s the most infuriating woman I’ve ever worked with.

I don’t like the way she bends over the photocopier—it makes my mouth water.

I hate the way she’s so eager to do a good job—it makes my dick twitch.

And I can’t stand the way she wears her hair up exposing her long neck. It makes me want to strip her naked, bend her over my desk and trail my tongue all over her body.

If my two worlds are going to collide, Harper Jayne will have to learn that I don’t just rule the boardroom. I’m in charge of the bedroom, too.

The King of Wall Street is a sexy, stand alone, contemporary romance.
Dragon's Lair (Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club Book 1) by [Fernando, Chantal]

The first in a new sexy romance series from bestselling author Chantal Fernando about the bad boys of the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club and the women who fall in love with them.

When I found my boyfriend cheating on me, I did something stupid.

Or should I say, someone?

Because of that mistake, I’m now stuck in a world I don’t belong in.

I’m a law student. They’re criminals. He’s the vice president of a motorcycle club. I’m a good girl with a strict upbringing. He’s my ex-boyfriend’s brother. 

And I’m screwed.

Dragon’s Lair. Which I do have review for.
I would really recommend the book if you like bad-ass biker men. Check out my reveiw for more information and my thoughts on the whole book. Plus let me know what you think if you have already read the book.
2. Best Sequel You’ve Read So Far in 2018?
Gabriel’s Rapture.
Gabriel's Rapture (Gabriel's Inferno Trilogy Book 2) by [Reynard, Sylvain]

 National bestselling author Sylvain Reynard continues the story of Gabriel and Julia, two lovers bound together by their darkest desires.

But those very desires may destroy them . . .

Professor Gabriel Emerson has embarked on a passionate, yet clandestine affair with his former student Julia Mitchell. Sequestered on a romantic holiday in Italy, he tutors her in the sensual delights of the body and the raptures of sex.

But when they return, their happiness is threatened by conspiring students, academic politics, and a jealous ex-lover. When Gabriel is confronted by the university administration, will he succumb to Dante’s fate? Or will he fight to keep Julia, his Beatrice, forever?

In Gabriel’s Rapture, the brilliant sequel to the wildly successful debut novel, Gabriel’s Inferno, Sylvain Reynard weaves an exquisite love story that will touch the reader’s mind, body, and soul, forever.

3. New Release You Haven’t Read Yet, But Want To?
 There have not been any new releases out that I have wanted to get.
4. Most Anticipated Release For Second Half of 2018?
Coming out at the end of this month it is called Sea Witch. It’s kind of a little mermaid retelling.
5. Biggest Disappointment?

6. Biggest Surprise?
I got to me Richelle Mead this year that was amazing. Drove 5 1/2 hours to see her.
