What I’m Kindle Reading // November 2020

My ‘What I’m Kindle Reading’ selection this month has focused on different book series and duets. Although standalone books still have a place on my reading list, there is something wonderful about finding out more about different characters and their romantic journeys. With duet books, a new way of enjoying a journey spread over two books. Knowing ahead of time to expect a cliffhanger between the two books. Which is acceptable to me when I know that the second book is available to read straight after. Unlike one of the books I read this month which ended on a cliffhanger (which I wasn’t expecting) and the next book isn’t available until next June!

Since then he has sworn off women, just not in the right mindset to deal with the hassle of it all.

However, when he is invited to his ex-fiancée’s wedding to his cousin he feels he has to attend to show that he’s over it all. Kesley suggests taking her along as a fake-date, which Theo isn’t sure about at first but goes along with it.
