There was a time, not many months ago, when I didn't believe that summer would ever exist. Call it what you want - Snowpocalypse, Snowmageddon, Polor Vortex, Hibernation- this past winter was brutal. 

 But there was a light at the end of the HOLY CRAP I'M SO COLD tunnel! And now...

And now all I want to do is be at the beach or by a pool with a good book (or several) and a margarita (or several).

So without further ado... Here are my top five reads for this summer! 

FIVE WAYS TO FALL by K.A. Tucker- I've already checked this one off my list. It's hot and sweet and set in Florida. There's beaches and margaritas and Florida oranges-- you can't get much more summery than that!

THE RULE OF SCOUNDRELS series by Sarah Maclean- I'll admit. I'm a newbie to Historical Romance. My mom read a lot of it when I was younger, and I was too weirded out to read it with her. But now I'm playing catch- up and I freaking LOVE Sarah's books. They're hilarious and smart and so very good!

EVERYTHING by Tessa Bailey- No... Everything is not the name of a book. I recently devoured pretty much everything Tessa has written, and they were the perfect sinful and fun summer reads. And I wouldn't be surprised if I reread several of them before Summer's end! 

SCORING WILDER by R.S. Grey- I've not read this one yet, but it sounds so awesome that my fingers are itching for it! I've not read anything by R.S. Yet either, so I'm excited to check out a new author!

WHITE HOT KISS by Jennifer L. Armentrout- *ducks* I know it's criminal that I haven't read this book yet. I am a super fangirl for all things JLA, and this little beauty is definitely on my to do list for this summer. Jen's books are always witty, and swoon-worthy, and imaginative. And I can't wait! 

Welp... There's my summer reads. Lots of sexiness up there, friends.
