Hot Summer Reads

by 7/18/2013 52 comments
Good Morning Everyone!

The Insatiable Reads Book Tour is launching it's Hot Summer Reads blog hop today complete with great
giveways, so please remember to hop around.

The title Hot Summer Reads makes me think of the beach. The beach makes me think of all the vacationers who want to bring something light to read while they suntan by the sea, so in that theme, today I'm going to share with you novels I think would be a great summer reads. Great hot summer reads.

Before, I do that though, I do want to let you know that this hop has some wonderful prizes, including two grand prizes. Grand prize #1 is a Kindle Fire (pretty hot stuff and darn grand I think) so good luck to you all! And grand prize #1 will be a $50 Amazon.com gift card.

Here on My Devastating Reads I'm giving away a copy of Abigail Sharpe's Who Wants to be a Cowboy, which I think is a perfect hot summer read. This prize is limited to US and Canadian residents.

How to win? Please leave a comment in the comment field.

Here is my list of Top 10 Summer Reads (in no particular order):


You can't go wrong with Maya Banks, and Enticed by His Forgotten Lover is a five star read in my opinion.









This is the first in Lisa Kleypas' Wallflowers series. Even if you've read it, you know you want to read it again, and where better to enjoy the story than on the beach? Or you know, suntanning in your background? You can read my thoughts on this hot read here.








Do you swoon at the word highlander? Do they make you hot all over? You can always dip into the ocean--or run through the sprinkler--during this great read. Read more about how great this is here.








I adore Maisey Yates, so of course her novel A Royal World Apart made the list. This was a five star read for me as well.








Of course Julie Garwood makes the list, and this one features a swoon worthy hero.
You'll laugh and sigh during this novel. Perfect anywhere, any time.









Kendall Ryan knows how to write romance. Sexy and sweet, this book will likely unravel you--in a good way. Another five star read for me.









Enjoy a good slow burn romance? I know I do, and Pamela Clare can sizzle up the pages. Try this one on for size--you'll need a lot of dips in the pool! Read more about Iain and Annie here.









If you enjoy YA, I think will fit the bill of good beach reading. And it's romantic too! One my favourites.









One of my all time favourites, it might not be the lightest reading, but this is romance to die for, and will keep you turning the pages. I've read it three times.

I'm a follower; I, too, like J.R. Ward. I tend to like my romance with either a paranormal twist, or tied up with mystery, mayhem, and murder. Straight romance doesn't really do it for me. Now give me some paranormal erotica, and sometimes even some non-paranormal erotica, and that's a different story! Thanks so much for the giveaway. michelle_willms@yahoo.com
