Hello friends and fellow book lovers! If you saw my Smuathon TBR, then you’ll know I had a very ambitious TBR and that I have a lot of books I want to get read. With that being said, I knew I wanted to do a wrap-up for this read-a-thon as I really love it and wanted to talk about these books a little bit more in-depth.
Let’s get into the details of this read-a-thon. This round took place from December 18th until December 20th and was an early Christmas gift for me tbh. I’m also going to be structing this as my other readathon wrap-ups in which they’re broken up by days and then stats at the end so let’s get into day 1.
Day 1: December 18th
The first book I read for this round of Smutathon was Gifting Me to His Best Friend by Katee Robert. This is obviously an m/f/m romance that starts off as a guy gifting his wife to his best friend and it goes from there. This was one of the longer reads on my list so I wanted to read it first. While it was a solid holiday book, I didn’t enjoy it as much as the first book in this series but it was still perfect for this readathon. 4/5 stars
The second book I finished on Day 1 was Neighbors Know My Name by Tya Marie. This was the one I used for New-to-me author and I thought it was decent. This book is super short and it features a girl who admires her neighbor from afar and then the two eventually ~do things~. Overall, I thought this could have been better if it wouldn’t have ended so abruptly and I wish it had a bit more smut. 3/5 stars
Day 2: December 19th
For Day 2, I finished 2 books once again and this one is a forced proximity as the two get stuck in an elevator and eventually, connect on both a sexual and emotional level. This book felt like it went by SO quick and I especially loved watching their relationship develop during their time in the elevator. It was incredibly sexy and I couldn’t get enough of it. I might continue and eventually, read the second book in this duet. 4/5 stars
The second book I finished on Day 2 was Neighborly by Katrin Jackson which is the second book in her Erotic Accommodations series. While I really wanted to love this book, I felt like it wasn’t nearly as sexy as I hoped for and I only wished it would have focused more on the certain relationship than others. Maybe I’m just picky but I didn’t love this one as much. 3/5 stars
Day 3: December 20th
On Day 3, I didn’t have nearly as much free time as I thought. I ended up having to help my mans with his writing project which took up most of my time. I was able to finish this book which makes me SO happy because I LOVED this. This is an m/f/m between Hercules, Hades and Meg which was just delightful. I don’t want to get too in-depth but it was probably my favorite of the series so far. The only issue I had was that I felt like the conflict was rushed too much towards the end.
Other than that, I can’t wait to continue on in this series and complete it in 2021 hopefully. 4/5 stars
Those were all my Smutathon reads for this round. Considering I had to work two of the three days, I’m happy I was able to read all of the books I picked out aside from one. I don’t regret helping my boo thang because he always makes me so happy. Either way, those are all my Smutathon reads. Hopefully, you had a nice time if you participated and had a nice weekend if you didn’t. 🙂
