KINDLE KANDY - June 19, 2015

Kindle Kandy is a Friday weekly bookish feature hosted by The Book Dame. We scan our shelves and e-readers to rediscover books we own that have not yet been read,  and have thus far been little more than shelf or Kindle Kandy. Too many books…too little time…..and all that jazz.  Please list one or two of your Kindle Kandy books in the comments or leave a link to your Kindle Kandy post below.  Don’t forget to link up at The Book Dame so you can check out all of the Kindle Kandy participants. 

Sushi for One
Camy Tang
The Sushi Series, Book 1 
Pub: September 1, 2007

'Sushi for One? is an entertaining romp into the world of multi-culturalism. I loved learning the idiosyncrasies of Lex's crazy family---which were completely universal. Enjoy!' ---Kristen Billerbeck, author of What a Girl Wants

'In Lex Sakai, Camy Tang gives us a funny, plucky, volleyball-playing heroine with way too many balls in the air. I defy anyone to start reading and not root for Lex all the way to the story's romantic, super-satisfying end.' ---Trish Perry, author of The Guy I'm Not Dating

Sports-crazy Lex Sakai isn't too worried about "winning" the unofficial family title "Oldest Single Female Cousin" when her cousin Mariko marries in a few months. Her control-freak grandma is easy to ignore, until Grandma issues an ultimatum--if Lex can't find a date for Mariko's wedding, her ruthless Grandma will cut off funding to the girls' volleyball team that Lex coaches.

Lex isn't about to look desperate by dating every player in the dugout. She comes up with a stringent list of requirements from her Ephesians Bible study in her search for The Perfect Man. She always wins in volleyball--if she ups her game, she's sure to succeed.

Then her brother introduces her to non-Christian, non-athletic, no-immediate-physical-appeal Aiden.

Aiden's on the rebound from a girl named Trish, who dumped him because he wasn't Christian. Then he discovers that Lex is 1) not attracted to him at all, 2) Christian, and 3) Trish's cousin. No way is he hooking up with anyone from that crazy family, much less another hypocritical Christian chick. He's certainly not masochistic.

Time is running out for Lex, and no matter what she does, she can't find the right guy. Especially when she keeps running into Aiden everywhere. If only the list would stop getting longer and longer...

I got this as a kindle freebie back in 2010 and I've known I've had it for a while, I just haven't been able to get to it.  I did have my eyes on it and was planning on buying it and when it came up free - I had to snatch it.  It came highly recommended by my sister and I will get to it sooner or later.  

The Mammoth Book of Special Ops Romance 
by Trisha Telep, Editor
Pub: May 11, 2010

Mary Burton's crime novel "Dying Scream" gives new meaning to the word suspense.

Adventurous stories of romance all feature the heroes of the Navy SEALs, Delta Force, Air Force Para-Rescue, Green Berets, Army Rangers, and other special forces. This collection includes the work of bestselling romance writers such as Laura Griffin, Marliss Melton, Cheyenne MacCray, Shannon K. Butcher, Stephanie Tyler, and Larissa Ione (writing as Sydney Croft).
I bought this as a pre-order on  March 29, 2010 right before it came out and I can't believe I forgot that I had this.  I forked over $10 to buy it in ebook form, which back then was a lot of money for an ebook.  I got it because I was reading the Sydney Croft series and Shannon K. Butcher's series.  I'm going to have to make time for this somehow. 

Have you read either of these books?  If so, what did you think? 

Don't forget to list your Kindle Kandy and link up!

  1. I haven't seen either of these before. I love the title for the second book...So catchy. I hope that you get a chance to read them at some point. I would be interested in knowing more about Special Ops Romance.
