Cate Reads – June 18, 2018
You may or may not have heard about #Cockygate. In a nutshell, an author trademarked the word “Cocky” and then threatened other authors with lawsuits if they used the common word “Cocky” in their book titles. She even went so far as to have Amazon take the other books down, thus costing those authors revenue and threatening their livelihood. In protest, a group of authors contributed to this anthology. Forgive the editing issues in some of the stories… this was done very quickly so that all proceeds could benefit the legal funds of the authors fighting the trademark. Not all the stories were my cuppa tea, but I did enjoy the variety and it’s all for a good cause: protecting artistic freedom.
I love Whitney G. She’s a seriously underrated author! This one actually had be choked up. And wanting to knock some heads together. A sexy best friends-to-lovers story.
I was lucky enough to read an ARC while this one is on pre-order. It’s sexy and adorable, with a little danger thrown in. Preorder now so it’ll be in your hot little hands on July 24th!
This is the next book in Alyssa’s Reluctant Royals series. It’s the perfect dreamy read for those hot summer nights!
