It's Monday. What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week.  It's a great post to organise yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are!

I've had a busy couple of weeks. I returned from a trip to Switzerland and have managed to devour the following books:
Black Tie Optional by Ann Marie Walker (arc)
Positively Pippa by Sarah Hegger (arc)
A Star To Steer Her By Beth Ann Miller
Tapped by Liz Crowe
Lightstruck by Liz Crowe

Today I am reading: I Knew You Were Trouble by Lauren Layne (arc)

(blurb from Goodreads):
New York City’s hottest bachelors are stirring up trouble in this fun, flirty Oxford Novel, as a love triangle forces a feisty beauty to choose between winning back Mr. Right or giving in to Mr. Wrong.

Taylor Carr has it all—a sleek job in advertising, a stunning Manhattan apartment, and the perfect man to share it with: Bradley Calloway. Even after Bradley dumps her for a co-worker on move-in day, Taylor isn’t worried. She’ll get her man eventually. In the meantime, she needs a new roommate. Enter Nick Ballantine, career bartender, freelance writer—and longtime pain in Taylor’s ass. Sexy in a permanent five-o’clock-shadow kind of way, Nick knows how to push Taylor’s buttons, as if he could see right through to the real her.

Nick’s always trying to fix people, and nobody could use a good fixing more than Taylor. Sure, she’s gorgeous, with mesmerizing silver eyes, but it’s her vulnerability that kills him. Now that they’re shacking up together, the chemistry is out of control. Soon they’re putting every part of their two-bedroom apartment to good use. Then Taylor’s ex comes crawling back to her, and Nick figures she’ll jump at the chance to go back to her old life—unless he fights for the best thing that ever happened to him.

Thoughts so far: I'm only at 8% on my kindle copy and it is shaping up to be a classic Lauren Layne novel. The protagonists are fun and sexy. The back drop is Manhattan and the narrative is laced with witty dialogue...perfect!

What's next?: The Story Of Us by Tara Sivec (arc) and Three Weeks With A Princess by Vanessa Kelly (arc)
