Important Moment in your Reading Life:
I love reading since I was a child. When my father introducing me to awesomeness of Manga (Japanese Comic) when I was 7 or 8 years old. And in the junior high school, 15 years old at that time, my friend got me hooked by Harlequin. Yes, I agree it wasn’t appropriate reading material for my age, but well since then I love romance books. I also love some Indonesian fictional author like Fira Basuki, Ayu Utamy, Dee, Djaenar. and Remy Silado.
But maybe the stepping stone when I finally announce myself as Book Addict is when I read Julia Quinn’s Bridgertons series – Romancing Mister Birdgerton, since then I couldn’t stop reading romance books.

Brown-Eyed Girl (Travis Family, #4)
By : Lisa Kleypas
Expected Publication : 2014
Down-on-her-luck fashion designer Avery Crosslin never expected to meet a handsome stranger in the Texas hospital where she has come to visit her father. Joe Travis is a patient in the ICU, recovering from life-threatening injuries after a boating accident. But Avery has no intention of letting any man distract her—especially not a member of the powerful Houston family she has sworn to hate. On the day of Joe’s departure from the hospital, he seeks her out, with unexpected consequences for Avery..
I am huge fan of Lisa Kleypas, and her contemporary romance, especially Travis Family was one of the best, IMO. So, when the magnificent Ms. Lisa Kleypas announce in her mailing list of her new installment of Travis Bunch, Joe’s story to be precisely, I was freaking excited.
Sadly, she have not made the cover yet… Well she even told us the publication date. This is the quotation of next Travis’s book (taken from her web http://www.lisakleypas.com) :
Will there be a 4th book in the Travis family series? LK : I’m writing it now!
- CAN NOT WAIT!!!
Tangled (Tangled #1)
By : Emma Chase
Drew Evans is a winner. Handsome and arrogant, he makes multimillion dollar business deals and seduces New York’s most beautiful women with just a smile. He has loyal friends and an indulgent family. So why has he been shuttered in his apartment for seven days, miserable and depressed?
He’ll tell you he has the flu.
But we all know that’s not really true.
Katherine Brooks is brilliant, beautiful and ambitious. She refuses to let anything – or anyone – derail her path to success. When Kate is hired as the new associate at Drew’s father’s investment banking firm, every aspect of the dashing playboy’s life is thrown into a tailspin. The professional competition she brings is unnerving, his attraction to her is distracting, his failure to entice her into his bed is exasperating.
Then, just when Drew is on the cusp of having everything he wants, his overblown confidence threatens to ruin it all. Will he be able untangle his feelings of lust and tenderness, frustration and fulfillment? Will he rise to the most important challenge of his life?
Can Drew Evans win at love?
Tangled is not your mother’s romance novel. It is an outrageous, passionate, witty narrative about a man who knows a lot about women…just not as much as he thinks he knows. As he tells his story, Drew learns the one thing he never wanted in life, is the only thing he can’t live without.
5 of 5 stars. Plus 2 thumbs up!
This book super awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Delightful. Fantastic. Hilarious.
Just let me rambling for this one.
When I saw this one at GR in Recommendation section, and read the blurb, then looking for the reviews, it just straight top to my TBR list. And I finished this book in one reading position – that how hooked I was with Drew.
Yes, Drew Evans. The hero with uncharacteristic anti-hero. Anti hero in the sense of the jerk and man whore type.
“Fuck, yeah. That’s good. Yeah, like that.“
See that guy—black suit, devilishly handsome? Yeah, the guy getting the blow job from the luscious redhead in the bathroom stall? That’s me. The real me. MBF: Me Before Flu.
He was a complete a*shol*. Arrogant. Full of himself. And this story was told in his POV.
Oh yeah. Just one more little detail you should know: I haven’t gotten laid in twelve days.Twelve days.Two hundred and eighty-eight sex-free hours. I can’t calculate the minutes—it’s too depressing. Remember all work and no play makes Drew a cranky boy? Well, at this point, Drew is practically a goddamned psychopath, okay?
Did, I hate him? Heck No. I loved him. Adore him.
Okay, maybe in the first pages he irritate me, but cmon, the monologue crack me up real bad. There’s lot of LOL moments. I was grinning and giggling the whole time. Definitely brighten up my day then.
This story show us how the mighty fallen, up close and personal. The man, who used to get his every whim, fall for a woman. When I mean FALL, he was really really in a deep hole, 50 feet deep down the earth.
I might as well shave my head and move to frigging Tibet. I hear the monks are hiring.
And I must admit, the heroine wasn’t really that special. She was fine, but definitely Drew win the spotlight. As a characters I love Katherine. She wasn’t some TSTL heroine, and she hold herself toward Drew.
“It makes me want to kiss her and strangle her at the same time. I’ve never been into S&M, but I’m beginning to see its benefits.”
Give yourself a treat by reading this funny, hilarious, romantic and hot story.
Happy Reading Fellas!
