Nomi’s Weekly Wrap Up #106

Nomi’s Weekly Wrap Up is a combined meme with the Sunday Post hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer, Bought, Borrowed and Bagged hosted by Braine @ Talk Supe and Stacking The Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. I’ll share news, post a recap of the past week and tell you what will be happening on my blog in the week ahead. I will also tell you about the books and goodies that I have managed to pick up.
We won the Netball Grand Final!! Whoo hoo! It was such a thrilling game!  I played in defence for 3 quarters, and we were down at the last change, so they moved me into the shooting position and I shot the winning goal with seconds to spare!! It was such a crazy day and it all went so fast!

I have read a few books that have been on my kindle for a while. I also 1-clicked a few books, but most were 99c pre-orders so it couldn’t be helped. They were the next book in the series that I want! Oh well, I will get to them as soon as I can.

The kids started holidays too. They deserve this two week break before tackling the final term of school! Christmas will be here before we know it!

Review ~ Uncivilized by Sawyer Bennett

UncivilizedTitle: Uncivilized
Author: Sawyer Bennett
Genre: Erotic Romance
Published: September 8th 2014

**Warning: This book is a wild, sexy beast of a read. 18+**

Putting a woman on her knees before me is what really makes my cock hard. I fuck with dominant force and absolute control. I demand complete surrender from my conquests.

Savage man, loner, warrior… I am dangerous at my core. I have lived amidst the untamed wild of the rainforest, in a society that reveres me and where every woman falls before me in subjugation.

Now I’ve been discovered. Forced to return to a world that I have forgotten about and to a culture that is only vaguely familiar to my senses.

Dr. Moira Reed is an anthropologist who has been hired to help me transition back into modern society. It’s her job to smooth away my rough edges… to teach me how to navigate properly through this new life of mine. She wants to tame me.

She’ll never win.

I am wild, free and raw, and the only thing I want from the beautiful Moira Reed is to fuck her into submission.

She wants it, I am certain.

I will give it to her soon.

Yes, very soon, I will become the teacher and she will become my student. And when I am finished showing her body pleasure like no other, she’ll know what it feels like to be claimed by an uncivilized man.
Honestly, I had to get Uncivilized from just reading the blurb! It sounded like a lot of sizzling fun, and it was that and more! I was swept away in a world of passion and new experiences for the characters, and I giggled and swooned along the way!

Swoon Thursday #109 – Breakable by Tammara Webber

Swoon Thursday is a super HOT meme created by the fabulous girls over at YA Bound.
Author: Tammara Webber
Series: Contours of the Heart #1
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Published: May 6th 2014
Breakable (Contours of the Heart, #2)
This was a nice sequel to Easy, getting to know Landon/Lucas better! This is a sweet moment when Lucas lets down some walls.

"It's not that I don't want you. I Lied, earlier, when I said I was protecting you." My eyes rose to hers as she sat, silent, still curled into the corner of my sofa. So impossible, so beautiful. "I'm protecting myself." My palms braced against the door, and I forced out the one thing I feared, and the desire that had bided its time, waiting to crush me. "I don't want to be your rebound, Jacqeline."

...... "Then why are you assuming the role?" she said instead, rising and crossing the carpet, her eyes on mine, unwavering. "It's not what I want, Either."

Review ~ Damaged Goods by Nicole Williams

Title: Damaged Goods
Author: Nicole Williams
Series: The Outsider Chronicles #2
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Published: September 9th 2014

When Liv Bennett said good-bye to her sinkhole of a hometown, she planned to leave that chapter of her life behind forever. But forever turned out to only be three years.

After her addict of a mother up and disappears, Liv returns to what she considers her own personal hell smack in the middle of nowhere Nevada to take care of her two younger sisters, and she promptly reinstitutes the golden rule that got her through her first nineteen years of life without getting knocked up, roughed up, or messed up: don’t date the local boys and, god forbid, don’t fall in love with one of them.

It isn’t long before that golden rule is put to the test.

Will Goods grew up in the next trailer over, but the wild, careless boy who used to tear up the town with his three brothers has morphed into someone else so completely, he’s almost unrecognizable. The quiet, contemplative man who works on cars every night and takes care of his mentally ill mother every day is nothing like the local boys Liv grew up avoiding.

But when Liv considers suspending her golden rule just this once, she finds out something about Will that will change everything.

Will Goods isn’t who he used to be—he’s not even the man Liv thinks she’s gotten to know over the summer. He’s become someone else entirely.

He’s become . . .

Damaged Goods.

Sigh… I loved this book so much!! It was such a sweet and a slightly heart aching read, watching Liv give up her life for her sisters and to do things just so they can survive. When she meets the guy who lives in the trailer next to hers, she begins to fantasize about him in ways she swore she never would.

Rogue (Real, #4)
Oh how I loved Greyson and his possessive ways!!

"I saw your lipstick on another man's mouth and I can still go back and break it until he can't find his fucking teeth. Hell, I want you to watch me break it if only so you know, once and for all, that you're my fucking girl and the only lucky bastard getting a piece of my girl is me."
"Was!" I drunkenly correct. "Was your girl."
He laughs more darkly. "You are so fucking mine you don't even know how mine you are," he says in a soft threatening voice...

Review ~ Rogue by Katy Evans

Rogue (Real, #4)Title: Rogue
Author: Katy Evans
Series: Real, Raw & Ripped #4
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Published: July 29th 2014

The fourth story in the new adult series that began with the New York Times bestseller Real, featuring Brooke's best friend, Melanie, and the ROGUE she can't resist.

Greyson King...
My boyfriend. My friend. My protector. He's the reason I wake up every morning with a smile on my face, and the reason I fall asleep limp, worn out, and aching for his warm arms around me. When we make love, he says my name like it means something. Like I mean something.
His name is Greyson King, but his alias is Zero.
There's zero trace of him, he has zero past, and now I know that with him, I will have zero future.
He may leave no trace of him anywhere, but his imprint is in me, in my very soul--and I hate that a mere look at him commands the beat of my heart. The temperature of my body.
I've looked for love my entire life. I've waited for the butterflies, the rainbows...
Instead I'm in a free fall of emotions and there's no one to catch me but the one man I should be running away from. The one man I thought was my prince charming.
Except this prince charming went rogue.
Greyson will stop at nothing to make me be with him. He'll let no one stand in our way, will allow no one to threaten me, and maybe this is what scares me most of all...
What will my rogue do to keep me?

Holy hotness ladies… Greyson is the King! If you have enjoyed the Real series and love Remington Tate, you are definitely going to love meeting Greyson. Katy Evans has created another dark, broody alpha male that I fell for straight away, and I want you all to meet him too!

So, we managed to make the Grand Final for netball… It was played yesterday and we won by 1 goal!! And I shot the winning goal with a few seconds to spare, so I pretty damn proud!! 

Blogging has been quiet this week, I am up to date on my posts and I’ve been busy reading Fool’s Assassin by Robin Hobb. I have missed this world and I love the new twists thrown in.

Other than that, life is quiet and the kids will be on school holidays in a week… there goes the quiet time!
