No Strings Attached by Candy Caine

Image
Two passionate stories of women finding love when they least expect it...

Never is Not Forever 
Claudia Brown has the perfect life, full of all the trappings of success. She has put herself through school and has worked hard to become the youngest English department chairperson at a prestigious ivy-league university. One trap she swears to avoid is marriage—a sure-fire way to constrain her career. Besides, she likes playing the field. But when Claudia realizes her biological clock is a ticking time bomb, she decides to have a baby—minus the attachment of the father. After a meticulous search she finds the perfect specimen: Robert Sterling, a smart, sexy, fellow professor. But she doesn’t factor in the one thing that can derail her entire campaign—falling in love with the sperm donor!

Forever Yours 
When Jade Green meets successful trial lawyer, Charles Trotter, she finds herself relaxing in the warmth of his smiles and his off-beat humor. Best of all, even though he is a blue-eyed hunk…

Wish To Be Reading... #4 (Paranormal Romance)

Image
Romance Edition Another Friday, another wishful read.
Oh my GOD!!! I think it's been over a year since the book I want to be reading today was released, I tried to keep up with how the books were being released but by the time I found out about the series 4 were already out so it was easy.
What I didn't expect was my instant addiction to the characters, the story, and the author's writing *^* It's just so, enjoyable and incredible, I'm instantly transported to wherever the story is taking place never mind that I've never been there in my life lol.
Anyway, I caught up but when I found out this was the LAST book in the series I lost it and refused (up until now... still going strong though) to read it. I've been lost in denial ever since, reading and rereading the previous books for all I am worth hehehehe.
So... I really wish I could be able to read (but can't make myself do it even after getting multiple copies...) ~~~~~

Wish To Be Reading... #3 (YA)

Image
Another Friday, another wishful read.YA Edition!

Today I would love to be able to reread a favorite book of mine.
One that got to me in so many ways, I was a completely different person when I finished reading it.

It was one of the very first contemporary books I read (Second only to, If I Stay by Gayle Forman) and wow, simply wow.

I really wish more people knew about this book but for the time being I'll just wish I could be reading...

Goodreads - Amazon - My Review
***Marc said he heard the dark song when he creeped houses. The song the predator's heart sings when it hears the heart of the prey. I heard it now. Marc said it had always been in me. Lurking. Waiting for me to hear.***

~~~~~ I loved this book, hope I get to read it again sometime soon.

Until next time my beautiful people <3

Hello my beautiful people!!!

I want to continue sharing with you my love for photography as well as books.
Whenever I have the chance I mix the both of them. I used to share them on the Facebook page for BookPics but I want to post them here too!!
Also a couple of years ago I joined Kristina's meme called "Bookography" [[Bookography is a post created by Kristina from Kristina's World of Books.]] But just as me she hasn't been posting regularly on her blog so I just thought to continue doing what I was doing (now that I'm back & blogging) but with some slight changes here and there.
Hope you bare with me hehe.

 I have yet to read this book, that's why I didn't add any quotes.  I liked how it turned out with the picture upside down.
I didn't edit the picture at all XD


Any pretty pictures of books? Quotes? Or scenes that remind you of a book you've read??? Until next time!!  ---hugs!!! --------Alba.

Wish To Be Reading... #2

Image
Another Friday, another wishful read.

This time I'm in a really paranormal/urban fantasy romance kind of mood. I'm a moody reader I'm craving (rather strongly) anything that contains mythical/magical creatures and steamy romance scenes here and there...

While I own some of the books in the series, I don't own them all and haven't been able to continue reading them... I stopped at book 5.
I'm in need of a reread to fall in love all over again with the captivating characters of Chloe Neill's Chicagoland Vampires series.

But! I WISH I would've already done that and caught up so I could read...

GoodreadsAmazon
First of all, the COVER is so completely gorgeous! I love cool yet at the same time dark colored book covers.
Second, after what happened in the previous 2 books I can't even fathom how the author will come up with yet more torture for my booknerd feels.

**Book description might contain spoilers from the previous books, if you haven't read t…
