HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY, MY FRIENDS!!!! Today’s earlybird list is loaded in favorite-author awesomeness, including a new one from Kristen Proby, Kelly Elliott, Kim Karr, K.M. Golland, and more!! YAY US!!

Guess what I’m doing on this wonderful Memorial Day? I’m LISTENING to an audiobook!!!! The Last Girl: The Dominion Trilogy, Book 1 <— *squeeeeee* Post apocalyptic, despair sounding. An epidemic has made woman very rare, and baby girls are essentially not being born anymore. YIKES!!! MINE!! :D

There’s been notice that some of the Whispersync audiobooks have gone up in price (even though still “sale-priced” considering the usual price of an audiobook), but a definite price increase. Not sure if it’s for good or not, but just in case, I went ahead and one-clicked a bunch that were still super-bargain-priced just in case they go up, too. And this was one of them, and I’ve been dying to read this, so listening is the next best thing! :) Or maybe, in time, THE best thing. This is my first official audiobook listen, in “fiction” format. ➔ Find out which of your Kindle books are available as audiobooks at a BARGAIN-PRICE!

P.S. In case you missed it yesterday, I five-star LOVED “Sustained” and here’s my review: Book Review – Sustained by Emma Chase

Tee hee!!! :PIt was my thirtieth birthday last week and now he’s calling in that promise. Seriously, Elliot Parker is insane if he thinks that an out of the blue private Facebook message stipulating the binding law of an oral contractual agreement is going to seal our twenty-two-year bullshit engagement.

  7. Kicking Reality by Kat T.Masen <— LIVE!! SOCCER PLAYER ALERT!! And she’s his best friend… with SOMEONE ELSE…Soccer is my life—it’s in my blood. I train hard, I play hard, and I win. Nothing will break my focus. I should have been able to avoid it, resist the temptation.

  8. Undercover Intentions by Sapphire Knight <— LIVE!! MAFIA ROMANCE ALERT!! ”Not everyone born of Mafiya blood wants to be in the life. I was determined to never go anywhere near it.

I had fallen for a well known biker, until he beat me up and made me realize that I needed to start a new lifestyle. I was doing pretty well until I ran into another bad boy who—I’m sure you didn’t see this coming—swept me off my feet.

A TON OF AWESOME BOOK WORLD NEWS TODAY!!!! In fact, I especially love this list, ’cause there’s all sorts of “behind the books” type of insight from the authors about what’s coming up, and why. YAY US!

Also, you know I couldn’t help but feature that one to the left. HOLY MOLY!!! Tarryn Fisher’s crazy-awesome covers strike again. But that’s not the only awesome-looking cover for us, today…

Oh and!!! In case you missed it earlier, today’s earlybird book releases are up ➔ 14 Earlybird Book Releases + some that are going live at midnight…

Also, scroll down to the bottom of this post, where I made a quick “shortcut list” of all the new preorders that I just added. Stuff I had NO clue was coming out, but that I know will make many here (including me) SQUEE with delighted anticipation!

The latest book-news:

Tarryn Fisher has a new book coming out!! *SQUEEEEEEE!!!* I DO LOVE EVERYTHING she writes. You KNOW I’m on this. It’s called “Atheists Who Kneel & Pray”. And that COVER!!! And that blurb! She’s a “muse” for artists, but she never sticks around… and then HE meets her. “David Lisey is in need of a muse. A talented musician lacking lyrical inspiration. When he first sees her, he knows he’s found what he’s been looking for.  Yara believes she can give David exactly what he needs to reach his full potential: A broken heart. David’s religion is love. Yara’s religion is heartache.” You can even order t-shirts (on… Colleen Hoover’s website? LOL!!! Why not? ;) ) Tarryn says:

“Thanks to Ellie McLove for this amazing cover and for being patient with me! I demanded a new font every other day, and don’t even get me started on the boots which were ballet shoes in the original photo. Ellie you did good and you didn’t cuss me out once. Blurb below. No release date (hello, it’s me!).”

Colleen Hoover gives us an update about her upcoming release “Without Merit: A Novel” (when it will be released, and the “feel” that we can expect, with this one). She says:

“Without Merit is coming October 3rd! This is the longest I’ve gone between releases. Over a year! Sorry about that. This one took a while.

Anyway, expect a totally different book from me with this one. Not nearly as heavy as It Ends With Us, but very quirky. Also, the main character is 17, so it’s on the younger side of NA. I think it would make a great buddy read with your teenager. It falls somewhere on the appropriate scale between Slammed and Hopeless.”

Sara Ney has a new book coming for us!!!!! The third book in the “How to Date a Douchebag” series (I LOVED book #1, and still need to read #2 ’cause it’s about the bully!! YAY!!!). So now there’s a third coming out entitled “The Learning Hours”, and you can bet I’m excited! She says:

“Alright. For those of you who are fans of the How to Date a Douchebag series, I have some news you might not already know: The 3rd Book is on it’s way!!!! *exhale* I couldn’t keep it a secret anymore!!!!!!!”

Lauren Gilley has a new series coming out, and Jan found us the news!!! Jan is squeeing as we speak! She said:

Jan: Mega squeeeee. I just checked Lauren Gilley’s fb page again (cos I’m hanging out for the release of American Hellhound (Dartmoor Book 6) some time this month!) and she has announced her next book after that will be the first in a new series.

The series is Sons of Rome and the book will be White Wolf, hopefully out in ‘late summer’ (this year!). Check this, ladies: ‘Dark, gritty, Gothic, and epic, the Sons of Rome series is a paranormal/supernatural/horror series with a big cast of lovable, complicated characters.’ Squeeeeeeeeeee. *runs out of breath, dies*

MichelleS: Jan – all you had to say was “Lauren Gilley” and “new book” – I’m sold. She is one of my favorite new authors. Loved the heck out of Dartmoor.

Lauren Blakely has a new book coming out too!!! It’s called The Knocked Up Plan and was formerly supposed to be titled “The Wild One”, but she changed the title and the cover to match the direction the story took. I LOVE this author insight! She says:

“…This isn’t a story about a woman taming a wild playboy.

This standalone romance is about all of the fun, hotness, and heartfelt emotions that come when a single woman asks her gorgeous, jaded, sworn-to-be-single-forever good friend to get one very particular job done. What happens next when he agrees to provide the bun for her oven are lots of hot sexy times and heartfelt moments. The original title just doesn’t suit the storyline for Nicole and Ryder.

I love THE KNOCKED UP PLAN because it says exactly what the story is about—it’s a fun, sexy and heartfelt story that’s full of hot baby-making sex and emotions that will bring a happy tear to your eye…”

Katy Evans also has a new release for us, and talk about a gorgeous cover. PERFECTION. It’s called “Racer” (and ANGST-ALERT!!! He’s a bad-ass race car driver, and he’s reckless, and she’s been sent to keep him out of trouble but it sounds like he’s gonna break her heart). It’s not up for preorder yet, but the author posted the blurb and the cover and here’s a snippet:

“I’m supposed to watch him—make sure he doesn’t get into trouble. But it’s an impossible task. And now the one in heart wrenching, toe-curling, soul-crushing trouble is me. Because when your heart belongs to someone, their truths become your own, and their secrets become your salvation…or your curse.

He says he wants me. He says I’m the One. But he also thinks he’ll break my heart, one piece at a time until it’s gone.”

Emma Chase has a free novella coming out in her “The Royally Series” (but it will only be available via her NEWSLETTER – which you can sign up for)!! I just discovered my HUGE love for this author all over again, with my read of her hilarious book “Sustained” so I have no doubt this series is awesome, too. The author says:

“I’m SO thrilled to announce that I’ve written Royally Raised – a Royally Series free short story – that will be delivered exclusively to newsletter subscribers for a limited time!!

To receive this fun, sexy & heartwarming story, that takes place in the future after Royally Matched, sign up for my newsletter by June 1, 2017:

Jennifer L. Armentrout just announced that she has TWO books that have been optioned for a “series” (A show series? Movies? I’m not sure yet), by Passionflix! She says:


I am super excited to share that the first two books in the Wicked series (Wicked and Torn) have been optioned for a limited series by the amazing team at Passionflix for 2018. They’re ready to bring Tink to life.”

Nicole Williams just announced a new book releasing in just a few days (it’s not up for preorder on Amazon yet) but she’s posted the gorgeous cover (with the blurb!), and from this title (ROOMMATES WITH BENEFITS), it sounds right up our alley! Even more so for me, ’cause she tagged her post #slowburn. HECK YES!!! :D She also says:

“Slow burn is my jam! But the cover isn’t slacking either. :D

Kristen Ashley blogged about her favorite scene… that she calls “THAT SCENE” (it’s from her upcoming release, The Farthest Edge (The Honey Series). It is now her favorite scene of all her favorite scenes (which she blogs about, here, too). ;) She says:

“I’ve blogged (at length) about my favorite scenes…and the fact that a scene in myupcoming THE FARTHEST EDGE has knocked off the scene in THREE WISHES that always held the top spot.”

P.S. ➔ Take a look at the latest UPCOMING RELEASES added to the main “Book Releases” page:



This book is something else!!!!! Like… the BEST kind of something else. The perfect amount of EVERYTHING, with every single thing we fall in love with, in a love story. Plus… the perfect kind of funny, too.

This one had it all. I one-clicked it almost a year ago to this day, and now regret every day I haven’t read it, because it was EXACTLY what I LOVE and was in the mood for.

And YOU GUYS KNEW IT!! Whenever this book is mentioned, it’s a SURE-BET recommendation without hesitation!

Sharon: Sustained by Emma Chase. READ.THIS.ONE! it had me laughing out loud uncontrollably. I looked like a fool on the beach! I hated paying full price for it, but these Legal Briefs are worth it! I have no idea what to read next. Back to angsty? Something light? Thriller?

Ashley:  I FLOVED this book! And the audiobook is one of my top favorites!!!! I already own it, but it makes me want to reread it!

Jan: Ashley I liked Sustained too. Funny, sweet and hot. The kids are cute and so real too.

Julie o: Sustained is one of my favorites too. Love it. Just hearing about it makes me want to read it again!

Tracey: Sustained (The Legal Briefs Series Book 2) by Emma Chase is soooo funny . It’s from a male point of view and his inner thoughts had me in pleats.

Anne: I finished Sustained and loved it! Jake and Chelsea are perfect for each other and the kids were amazing! I liked this one better than Overruled :) Can’t wait for Brent’s story!

Maryse: Many were saying Sustained was better than the first one (I know someone here did not like the first one because of the a$$ hero – I think it was Lisa)?. But I received a ton of enthusiastic comments on Sustained…

Jean: Avoiding Overruled because of the comments I’ve seen, but Sustained looks soooo good!

Lisa: Yes Maryse….that was me who struggled with the book before Sustained because of the jerk H Stanton (who I still have the urge to throat punch just typing his name :/ ). I didn’t gel with any of the female characters either so it was a bust for me. But there’s loads of great reviews for Sustained…most loved it.

Julie o: Sustained was great, much better than the first book in series. It was funny and sweet. The H in first book was an a$$hole. I didn’t even finish it.

Cristina: …seriously laughed my a%$ off reading Sustained! I had tears streaming down my face. If you haven’t read it, please do! It centers around lawyer, Jake Becker. All male, and all hot. The dialogue reminded me of Emma Chase’s first book in her Tangled series. Ohhhh…… Drew Evans… *sigh*

Jake Becker meets Chelsea in this book. Chelsea recently moves to D.C. after her brother and sister-in-law pass away. She is left to raise her SIX nieces and nephews all by herself (ages 6 months to 14). She meets Becker after one of the kids pick-pockets Becker in a park. He catches the kid and drives him home to tell his parents.

There is a scene where Chelsea and the kids catch the stomach flu and Becker (having never raised a kid much less been around them), comes to Chelsea’s aid. I laughed till I cried! What makes Emma Chase such a great writer is these scenes are so close to real life. Unfiltered and messy. I read that scene out loud to my husband and we were both dying laughing. He said, “Man, that does sound like real life.”

Sharon: I read Sustained at the beach. It had me laughing like a lunatic! Loved the entire series!

Kate: Sustained was so good! It had me laughing out loud and was very sweet.

Maryse: OMG I already one-clicked Sustained!!! YAY ME. I have to bring that one back to the top of my list. I hate forgetting books I want to read.

Steph: Well, apparently I one clicked Sustained November 2, 2015 and never read it. lol I’ll be reading that next myself :) ~

Maryse: UPDATE!!!! Sustained is so charming. Utterly heartwarming… *sigh*

Jan: Glad you’re liking Sustained Maryse. Everyone should read it. bev…….?????? Put it to the top of your tbr stat!

P.S. I just want to say now that I’ve met “Stanton” from the first book, in this one, and your hating on him for his jerk-facedness, I feel like I want to read his book badly, too! I’m a sucker for those, too. LOL!!!

But back to this one…

People kept mentioning THE kids. How funny the kids were. How they made this story… more. I can love kids in stories, but I often find kids are a bit over exaggerated in novels (or not quite true – to me anyway – to their age). But not these. And there were SIX of ‘em. ABSOLUTE perfection on the “kid-front”. Hilarious, bratty, heartwarming, infuriating, goofy, and everything I expect in a story about a makeshift family that has to adjust in the face of tragedy.

…she grabs my face with both little hands, sliding one side down and pushing the other up.

“You’re kinda like that Sloth guy, Jake. You’re big and loud.” She gazes down at me thoughtfully. “But you’re not as ugly as him.” I’ll take what I can get. “Thanks,” I murmur though squashed lips.

*snort* GAH the kids!!! :P !!!! So real, so authentic, and with the Jake in their lives… absolutely hilarious. But not without its share of heartache.

Because what a tragedy it was. A sister of her loving, successful, altruistic brother has to say goodbye, but doesn’t even have the time to grieve, as she picks up the pieces of his beautiful, yet shattered family. After his death (and that of his wife) in a tragic accident, Chelsea uproots her life and aspirations to raise his six children (ranging from baby, to just-new-teenager). And she doesn’t think twice of it. She’s the most wonderful, giving loving soul, but not without her imperfections, and impatience (as to be expected when 6 children occasionally run amok).

And then she meets HIM. Jake.

A criminal lawyer (defense attorney) that has had his share of hard knocks in his own childhood, and received a few breaks to lead him into adulthood success (albeit, without its own set of difficulties and judgments). She meets him alright. But totally by accident, and only because one of her nephews messes up BIG time and HE’S the one that deals with him. But instead of turning in this potential juvenile delinquent to the police, he brings him back home to Chelsea, and lets her deal with him.

She breathes out a shaky breath and wipes her cheeks. “I’m just . . . I’m so tired, Jake. I’m so tired.”

For the first time, I think about what it must’ve been like for her . . . after she got that phone call. How she probably raced around, throwing necessities in a bag, figuring she’d send for the rest of her things later. How she had to withdraw from school, probably break the lease on her apartment— upend her entire f**king existence.

And when he truly SEES her… and both of their worlds change in an instant.

The oldest girl— the one who hates her family— lets out a short snort of disbelief.

“Did you just ask her out on a date?”

I keep my eyes on Chelsea’s face. “Yeah— I did.”

And her cheeks turn the loveliest shade of pink.

Then it’s blond Shirley Temple’s turn. “But you’re so old!”

I tear my eyes from Chelsea’s blush to blast the kid with a grumpy brow. “I’m thirty.”

The grumpy brow fails to intimidate.

“Thirty!” Her hands go to her hips. “Do you have grandchildren?”

BUT!!!!! Not without that delightful slow burn. Seriously realistic “concern” to friends, to best friends… to so much more. But Jake never signed up for a girlfriend,

It’s not my problem. It’s none of my business. I have my own sh!t to worry about.

That’s what I tell myself as I put my phone aside, push my chair forward, and refocus on the document in front of me. On the hours of work I still have to finish tonight.

Be smart. Prioritize.

They’re fine. People get sick all the time . . .

And then they die.

Fire alarms go off every day . . .

As houses burn to the ground.

Goddamn it!

…let alone for one with SIX (count ‘em!!!) SIX children.

Maryse: LOL the piano teacher scene. *snort* GAH. I LOVE this hero.

Maryse: LOL I’m dying of laughter. The obstacle course scene. But it’s not corny funny. It’s witty, clever, realistically hilarious. Goofy stuff, and sweet stuff, and hot-headed stuff but so real. LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS BOOK!

Cheryl: Maryse, you definitely are selling me on Sustained. Sounds like just what I need in between all the yard work I’m doing this weekend!

bev: Ok, now I want to read Sustained. It’s been on my tbr for awhile.

 Maryse: OH MY. OH NO HE DIDN’T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And yet… sooner than later, he finds himself so fully ingrained in their lives,

I’m not going to tell the others, but I think he’s my favorite.

…even though he desperately wants anything BUT that.


Or does he? <— OH YES!!! I ended my “what’s it about” moment with a tell-tale question. ;) Tee hee!!!  I generally say away from blurbs with questions in the end (or at least, TOO MANY questions in the end), but I could NOT resist. :P

5 FREAKING AWESOME STARS!!!! This one was perfectly well rounded, completely realistic and unrushed, and wholeheartedly charming and hilarious. My perfect romance read!


MAX MONROE ALERT!!! This time they have SEXY DOCTOR BOOK BOYFRIENDS for us!!! One book is live with two on the way (and already up for preorder) ’cause they’re both coming out soon!

About book #1:

It’s just a docuseries about your career as an OB/GYN, they said.
It won’t interrupt your life during or after filming, they said.
It is a great opportunity for the hospital and your practice, they said.

Well, they—the television executives who seem intent on ruining my career and personal life with a fair number of creative liberties—lied.
Now I’m stuck dealing with the consequences of believing them.

Instead of being known as Dr. Will Cummings, Head of Obstetrics and Gynecology at St. Luke’s Hospital, I’m now being called Dr. Obscene.

What devotion I’d hoped to earn in respect, I’ve instead received in patients flashing me seductive smiles and flirtatious winks during their exams.

How’s a guy supposed to convince the most perfect woman he’s ever met that he’s not as much of an idiot in real life as he appears to be on camera?

With all of the show’s side effects taking root like parasites, it’s going to take a lot to persuade Melody Marco to be anything more than my new nurse.
But I can’t get her out of my head.

want her.

Good thing I’ve never been one to back away from a challenge…

Get ready, Melody.

The doctor is in.

BASEBALL STAR ALERT!!! And the duet will be complete in just a month ’cause book #2 is up for preorder and coming out soon!!!

About book #1:

Easton Wylder is baseball royalty. The game is his life. His passion. His everything.

So, when an injury threatens to end Easton’s season early, the team calls in the renowned physical therapist, Doc Dalton, to oversee his recovery. Except it’s not Doc who greets Easton for his first session, but rather his daughter, Scout. She may be feisty, athletic, defiant, and gorgeous, but Easton is left questioning whether she has what it takes to help him.

Scout Dalton’s out to prove a female can handle the pressure of running the physical therapy regimen of an MLB club. And that proof comes in the form of getting phenom Easton Wylder back on the field. But getting him healthy means being hands-on.

And with a man as irresistible as Easton, being hands-on can only lead to one thing, trouble. Because the more she touches him, the more she wants him, and she can’t want him. Not when it’s her job to side in the club’s best interest if he’s ready to play.

But when sparks fly and fine lines are crossed, can they withstand the heat or is one of them bound to get burned?

NEW SEXY SERIES BY K.A. LINDE ALERT!!! Two books out, and another on the way!!! Oh boy it sounds angsty, and maybe a little love triangle-y, too. ;)

About book #1:

I’d dated his brother.

He didn’t remember and I wish I could forget.

I may have sworn off the Wright family a long time ago. But when I returned home, Jensen Wright crashed into my life with the confidence of a billionaire CEO and the sex appeal of a god. Even I couldn’t resist our charged chemistry, or the way he fit into my life like a missing puzzle piece.

Too bad he’d forgotten the one thing that could destroy us.

Because Jensen Wright doesn’t share. Not with anyone. And if his brother finds out, this could all go down in flames.

When it all was said and done, was he the Wright brother?

  • Before You Were Mine by Em Muslin <— LIVE!!! SHE HAD TO GIVE UP HER DAUGHTER FOR ADOPTION… and now she’s obsessed because… “Then, over thirty years later, Eli catches sight of her daughter. And she knows that she must do everything to find a way back into her life. Even if it means lying… While her husband Tommy must grow to accept his own part in the events of her early life, he can only try to save her before her obsession with the young woman ruins them both…” OH I WANNA READ IT!!! :D
  • The Fall by Nia Forrester <— RECENT RELEASE & WE HAVE FEEDBACK! Jan recommends it!
Jan: The Fall by Nia Forrester. I don’t normally enjoy this trope but it’s so well done in this book. She’s a feisty independent highly intelligent college professor in her forties who likes a one night stand but nothing deeper. He’s a new faculty member, late thirties, divorced, and has just written the latest hot button book. I think there’s about 8 years between them?? They are attracted and have what she THINKS is the classic one nighter, but he’s not going to let her get away……. It’s a great read.
  • Loving Jade: Flynn’s story – Riverstone Estate Series – standalone by Roya Carmen <— LIVE!!! ROYA CARMEN’S LATEST BOOK JUST WENT LIVE!! She escapes her husband…”Yet, I still don’t feel free – I know Michael will find me. It’s just a matter of time. Love is the last thing I’m looking for, but Flynn is such a beautiful man, inside and out. He makes me believe that I can be stronger, that I can be fierce. He believes he can fix me with equine therapy but he has no clue how much damage has been done...” And then her husband finds her.
  • A Girl Like Me (Like Us Book 2) by Ginger Scott <— IT’S LIVE!!! GINGER SCOTT’S LATEST ALERT!!! This is book #2 after this one: A Boy Like You (Like Us Book 1)

Lisa: I just read Ginger Scott’s A Boy Like You (Like Us Book 1). It was awesome…even with a cliffy. The next one ‘A girl like me’ is out soon. I hope. Its contemporary romance for sure but there’s a twist of paranormal mystery.

Ashley: Omg it was totally supposed to say I’ve been lurking for years and I want to recommend “A Boy Like You” as my new fave book. See? This is why I lurk. I can’t even comment correctly.

Maryse: LOL Ashley!! Well I’m glad you’ve come out of “lurking” even if it was just to tell us. ;) *hug*

Nancy: FALL BACK SKYWARD & BREAKING GRAVITY a two book series are now both on sale… I read them out of order, but they can be read as standalones. However, it would be better to read them in order. Lots of angst, turmuil, & broken hearts, but it isn’t ever easy but ends well

Jean: I read The Darkest Corner over the weekend and really liked it and was lucky enough to have the author send me the 2nd book already (Gone to Dust (Gravediggers Book 2)) which I am liking even more than the first one!
  • Before You Break by K.C. Wells & Parker Williams <— LIVE!!! M/M ROMANCE

That is until he meets Stella. She makes Alex feel like there is more to life than football...”

  • The Café in Fir Tree Park by Katey Lovell <— LIVE!!! SINGLE MOM MAKING IT ON HER OWN… “…When her husband Clint was sent to prison, she had to raise Josh and Kelly alone. But Clint can’t hurt them now, and there’s no denying that Paolo, the Italian football coach she spies every weekend out on the green, is more than easy on the eye.
  • Good Lies (A Wild Minds Novel) by Charlotte West <— ROCK STAR ALERT!! SECRETLY MARRIED TO A ROCK STAR & NOW SHE HATES HIM BUT... “The two bands will be headlining together. This is going to make avoiding Warren difficult. Especially since it seems Warren doesn’t want to be ignored. He also doesn’t want a divorce. That’s right, Addy is married to the Wild Minds front man. Shh. Don’t tell.” Megan has feedback for us on this one!
Megan: Hi Maryse! I just read Good Lies by Charlotte West. It was so so so good! read it in 1 day. Thank you for posting about it!
  • Playing For Keeps by Shiloh Walker <— ROMANTIC STEAMY TRIO ALERT! POSSIBLY A TEARJERKER!! “…Doctor Jacob McCoy loves Dana. So much so, that he’s even willing to share her with Mason Caldwell. But a red-hot threesome isn’t all that Jacob wants from Dana. When tragedy strikes their fledging relationship, Jacob has to convince Dana that pushing him away isn’t the answer. He wants to be in her life forever. And some things are worth fighting for…” (this one is a re-release).
  • Excess by Kate Stewart <— LIVE!!! KATE STEWART ALERT!!! Oh boy I DO love this author! And this sounds TOTALLY DRAMATICALLY & ROMANTICALLY ANGSTY (a love triangle? Cheating? WHAT THE??!!! The author says: “**If you are not a fan of cursing, erotic and extremely explicit sex, cheating, immoral behavior, dysfunction or sexual scenarios that may make you feel uncomfortable this is not the book for you. FILTHY. EROTIC. ROMANCE.” *blink blink*  I love that warning!) “I made my fortune, built my castle, and then exiled myself within its comforts once reality set in. Far too late, I discovered I was drowning in a sea of hungry sharks. Given the choice to sink or swim, I chose the latter … and it cost me everything. Devin McIntyre, the most dangerous shark of them all, was the last nail in my naïve coffin…”
  • Without Words by Delancey Stewart <— FIREFIGHTER WHO CAN NO LONGER SPEAK ALERT!!! Lisa recommends it!!

Lisa: ust have to say – I am loving Without Words. For those of you who like broken heroes (and relatively silent ones at that), this one is for you!!! HE had some type of brain injury/accident and it’s difficult for him to speak still. But she doesn’t know that and thinks he’s just standoffish and can’t figure out why he doesn’t communicate well with her and often just runs away…

Jean: Lisa! You had me at “broken”……I NEED THAT BOOK!!!

  • Good Grief by Vera Elle Unita <— LIVE!!! HER NEW JOB MEANS SHE HAS TO MOVE INTO HIS MANSION ALERT! Turns out, the mansion needs more than a little makeover, and she is stuck with that growly bear of a man for weeks. He doesn’t even like her French bulldog—who the hell doesn’t like puppies?”
  • Completely Captivated by A.D. Justice <— LOVE TRIANGLE ALERT!!!Aaron breezed into my coffee shop and right into my heart. He was gorgeous, confident, and sexy. Out of all the women who threw themselves at him, he wanted me. Against my better judgment, I took a chance. Then he took our new life away. When I was at my darkest, my lifelong friend Jared pulled me through, only to tell me he wants to take Aaron’s place. But can I give my heart to Jared when Aaron already stole it?

Amy needs our help!! Okay not our usual Amy from here, nor Alabama Anti-Amy… ;) But this Amy’s from our Facebook crew, and she’s looking for THIS book. She asks:


I have a question. I read a book the other day and when I went to put “read” in my Goodreads I could not find the book. I’ve now searched my Amazon account for 2 hours and it is absolutely driving me crazy. I just read it the other day.

It’s about a couple that meet and have sex at a bar. They end up setting a standing date to meet once a week at a place he chooses to get it on in public.

She’s from Chicago and her family owned a department store. And he’s a playboy that is stalked by paparazzi.

Do you have any idea what book I’m talking about?


Tee hee!! Exhibitionists and he’s being stalked by paparazzi? Oh that’s going to go over well. For us, anyway. *snort*

Anyone know it?
