Jess's Dusty Read
Stray (Shifters #1)
by Rachel Vincent

There are only eight breeding female werecats left . . .
And I'm one of them.
I look like an all-American grad student. But I am a werecat, a shape-shifter, and I live in two worlds.

Despite reservations from my family and my Pride, I escaped the pressure to continue my species and carved out a normal life for myself. Until the night a Stray attacked.

I'd been warned about Strays -- werecats without a Pride, constantly on the lookout for someone like me: attractive, female, and fertile. I fought him off, but then learned two of my fellow tabbies had disappeared.

This brush with danger was all my Pride needed to summon me back . . . for my own protection. Yeah, right. But I'm no meek kitty. I'll take on whatever -- and whoever -- I have to in order to find my friends. Watch out, Strays -- 'cause I got claws, and I'm not afraid to use them . . .

Jess's thoughts: I bought this for myself a while a go. I have the complete series at home. I can't wait to get started in them and read about Werecats instead of wolves. I've only read one other book by Rachel Vincent and that was her Blood Bound book and I absolutely loved it. I adore he writing. And I hope I won't take too long to finally getting around to reading this series.

One Night That Changes Everything Donna's Dusty Read

One Night That Changed Everything
by Lauren Barnholdt 

Eliza is in a full-blown panic. Her notebook has been stolen—the one that lists everything she wants but is afraid to go after. And the absolute worst person in the world has it: her ex-boyfriend, Cooper. 

Like it’s not enough Cooper was lying to Eliza for their entire relationship, now he and his friends are blackmailing her. They’re giving her just one night to complete the most humiliating tasks on her list or they’ll post her secrets online—including the ones that aren’t just about her.

Eliza’s sure of only one thing: she isn’t going down without a fight. Cooper may have what’s left of her dignity, but she’s not the only one with something to hide.

Donna's thoughts:  I've really been on a contemporary romance kick lately and One Night That Changed Everything has been high on my list to read. I'm hoping to try and get around to reading it one of the next weekend because it sounds amazing!

So that's our Dusty Read's for this week! Don't forget to leave us your thoughts below. 
Happy Reading!

I really want to read the Shifters series! I love her Soul Screamers, but my library doesn't have these. :(

Stray is pretty good but I prefer Rachel Vincent's Soul Screamers series to her Shifters series. I hope you enjoy it though! Donna, I've never heard of One Night but it sounds good! :)
