June 2020 TBR

I don’t know why it’s always such fun for me to put together a TBR each month because I have yet to read everything on my TBR for a month. But, I think I just love lists and I love looking at books, so TBR it is! Mostly I look and see what’s currently available on my wishlist through Overdrive and/or Hoopla. This always changes of course, and I’m never sure about when holds will come through for the books that I had to put on hold to actually be able to get my hands on them. But, here’s a list of some potential reads for me coming in June. Oh, and I’ll be taking a little vacation this month, and I never get as much reading done as I hope to get done while on vacation. However, it’ll just be me and my family in a secluded cabin on a lake. So, I’m envisioning some sun soaking with a book in my hand!

The Shadows ~ Review

Ali here ~

Title: The Shadows
Series: Black Dagger Brotherhood #13
Author: J.R. Ward
Release Date: Mar 31, 2015
Genres: Paranormal Romance
Blurb: Trez “Latimer” doesn’t really exist. And not just because the identity was created so that a Shadow could function in the underbelly of the human world. Sold by his parents to the Queen of the S’Hsibe as a child, Trez escaped the Territory and has been a pimp and an enforcer in Caldwell, NY for years- all the while on the run from a destiny of sexual servitude. He’s never had anyone he could totally rely on… except for his brother, iAm.

iAm’s sole goal has always been to keep his brother from self-destructing- and he knows he’s failed. It’s not until the Chosen Serena enters Trez’s life that the male begins to turn things around… but by then it’s too late. The pledge to mate the Queen’s daughter comes due and there is nowhere to run, nowhere to hide, and no negotiating.

Trapped between his heart and a fate he never volunteered for, Trez must decide whether to endanger himself and others- or forever leave behind the female he’s in love with. But then an unimaginable tragedy strikes and changes everything. Staring out over an emotional abyss, Trez must find a reason to go on or risk losing himself and his soul forever. And iAm, in the name of brotherly love, is faced with making the ultimate sacrifice…

Memories were especially dear, when they were all you had left of a loved one to hold on to.
