Book Reports (59-63) ...

Because I've had trouble keeping up with my reading, I'm going to change my book report style a bit. Now I'm aiming to write reviews on Goodreads and simply post the link here. But I'm also going to change my star system:

* = Just not for me
** = Interesting premise but not engaging enough to complete
*** = Okay; didn't love but liked enough to finish (or at least skim)
**** = Good; liked the writing style and/or the plot enough to stick with it
***** = Loved; will definitely keep and/or re-read

[Better Than People, by Roan Parrish -- male/male romance -- sweet story of two men (who fit together well) as they fall in love]

***** (R)
Scorched, by Laura Griffin -- adult suspense/mystery -- one of Griffin's Tracers series, in this one, Kelsey and Gage find their lives turned upside down because of Kelsey's connection to a corrupt plan within the FBI itself.

[Trade Deadline, by Avon Gale, Piper Vaughn -- male/male hockey romance -- this is the 3rd in a series, and in this one, Daniel Bellamy is traded to a team with the worst stats in the league at his request, as he hopes to help fire them up; he also meets up with his childhood best friend, Micah.]

[Common Goal, by Rachel Reid -- male/male hockey romance -- this is the 4th in Reid's series (Game Changers), and in this one, Eric is getting ready to retire, has recently gotten divorced, and is now wanting to explore his bisexual side when Kyle, a bartender, offers to help him out with the exploration.]

Six Months Later, by Natalie Richards -- YA suspense -- Chloe wakes up one afternoon with no memory of the past six months, but she's somehow gained a popular boyfriend and good grades (and lost her best friend); if only she could figure out what's happening.

I've done some re-reads of other books too, but at the moment, I'm just going to stick with either new reads or only my first re-read of any book. :)
