I began this Throwback Thursday meme as a way to share some of my old favorites as well as sharing books that I want to read that were published over a year ago. You know, the ones waiting patiently on my TBR list while I continue to pile more titles on top of them:)! I like that these older books are usually much easier than new releases to get a hold of at libraries and elsewhere. If you have your own Throwback Thursday recommendation feel free to jump on board, you’re welcome to use my pic as well. If you’d just link back to me I’d so appreciate it.
My PICK this week is:
Published Feb, 2015
My Rating: 4/5 Stars
I, Thomas Clifford Donnely, am a manwhore.
I’ve been told I’m irresistible to women. Like catnip for a different type of pussy-cat. I guess you could call me a Tom Cat.
This is the story about how I lost my wingman, broke all my own rules, and found myself falling in love.
Tom Donnelly isn’t the marrying kind, or the dating kind. Even after losing his #1 wingman to love, he doesn’t see the point in relationships. When his sister’s best friend returns to Whidbey Island and propositions Donnelly for a one-night stand, he breaks one of his biggest rules—no fooling around with his sisters’ friends. It’s just sex, nothing more. That’s what Tom does and does well.
What happens when “just sex” isn’t enough?
Hailey King is more than a match for Tom’s flirtations. She’s known him most of her life and has heard the rumors about his “skills” for years. When her perfectly planned future falls apart, will the last man she should ever fall for turn out to be more than a one-night stand?
With summer coming up, I thought this would be the perfect pick for you to add to your summer fun reads tbr! I’m the first to admit that mystery and crime fiction are my first loves, but every once in awhile I need to sit down with a glass of wine (or 2😉) and just read something fun and witty, where no one is disappearing or getting killed. Some may call them “palette cleansers” but I call them “feel good reads.” Whatever you call them, this book checks all the boxes for a fun, feel good, get lost in it read. I read this last summer and I was so pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed Tom! He’s your typical handsome, but commitment phobic type of guy….oh and super charming! It’s narrated by him and right off the bat I liked him. I really enjoyed Daisy Prescott’s writing style as well and will certainly be looking for more of her books this summer. If you’re like me and you typically enjoy Elin Hilderbrand and Emily Giffin for your summer reads, I think you’ll also enjoy Confessions of a Reformed Tom Cat.
