Misconduct by Penelope Douglas Review

Title: Misconduct
Author: Penelope Douglas

Format: Audio book
Publication Date: December 1st, 2015
Former tennis player Easton Bradbury is trying to be the best teacher she can be, trying to reach her bored students and trying to forget her past. What brought her to this stage in her life isn’t important. She can’t let it be. But now one parent-teacher meeting may be her undoing…

Meeting Tyler Marek for the first time makes it easy for Easton to see why his son is having trouble in school. The man knows how to manage businesses and wealth, not a teenage boy. Or a young teacher, for that matter, though he tries to. And yet…there is something about him that draws Easton in—a hint of vulnerability, a flash of attraction, a spark that might burn.

Wanting him is taboo. Needing him is undeniable. And his long-awaited touch will weaken Easton’s resolve—and reveal what should stay hidden…

Baseball isn’t supposed to be a game of life and death…

The summer that Chase Stern entered my life, I was seventeen. The daughter of a legend, the Yankees were my family, their stadium my home, their dugout my workplace. My focus was on the game. Chase... he started out as a distraction. A distraction with sex appeal poured into every inch of his six foot frame. A distraction who played like a god and partied like a devil.

I tried to stay away. I couldn’t.

Then, the team started losing.
Women started dying.
And everything in my world broke apart.

This is for the past 2 weeks, because I forgot about this. But the cool thing is the majority of these books I got at the Dollar Tree! Like the Manners and Mutiny I got there and it is a hardback autographed copy! As a matter of fact, the only one I didn't get from the dollar tree is The Glittering Court.

Long time since I have done one of these. I have been out of the reading game for some time, but here are the books I did get this week.

Now I know I have already put As I Darken on a STS, but that was an ebook and they had a hardback physical copy at BAM for $4, and I wasn't about to pass that up. I also have had After We Fell and I gave my other copy away, because I didn't feel I was ever going to finish it. Then I really wanted to and it was also about $4 at BAM.

Author: Kresley COle

Release Date: February 13th, 2018

In a world teetering on the edge . . .
When Evie receives life-changing—and possibly game-changing—news, she has trouble believing it. Why doesn’t she feel any different? Is it possible someone she trusts might be lying?

With enemies at every turn . . .
Tensions seethe inside the castle of lost time as Evie begins to doubt her own sanity. Answers might be found outside their stronghold, but will Death help her find them—or prevent her from learning the truth about her future and Jack’s possible survival?

Darkness beckons.
A mysterious, sinister power begins to affect all the Arcana in its path. Forced out into the wasteland alone, Evie must depend on unexpected allies for survival. But as a battle with Richter looms, can her new alliance defeat the dark calling before hell reigns on earth?
Let me start off by saying I did all of this without reading the description once! I still haven't read all of Arcana Rising (in that meaning I have only read the first chapter), but I had to add this to one of my WoWs. I love this series and I love the author. Plus, this comes out the day before my birthday, so I know what I am asking for! I just need to get on the ball and read Arcana Rising.

29589074Title: Truly, Devious
Author: Maureen Johnson

Release Date: January 16th, 2017

Ellingham Academy is a famous private school in Vermont for the brightest thinkers, inventors, and artists. It was founded by Albert Ellingham, an early twentieth century tycoon, who wanted to make a wonderful place full of riddles, twisting pathways, and gardens. “A place,” he said, “where learning is a game.”
Shortly after the school opened, his wife and daughter were kidnapped. The only real clue was a mocking riddle listing methods of murder, signed with the frightening pseudonym “Truly, Devious.” It became one of the great unsolved crimes of American history.
True-crime aficionado Stevie Bell is set to begin her first year at Ellingham Academy, and she has an ambitious plan: She will solve this cold case. That is, she will solve the case when she gets a grip on her demanding new school life and her housemates: the inventor, the novelist, the actor, the artist, and the jokester. But something strange is happening. Truly Devious makes a surprise return, and death revisits Ellingham Academy. The past has crawled out of its grave. Someone has gotten away with murder.
The two interwoven mysteries of this first book in the Truly Devious series dovetail brilliantly, and Stevie Bell will continue her relentless quest for the murderers in books two and three.
I loved Maureen Johnson's Shades of London series. This one looks kind of similar to it, so I do have high hopes.
