OH MY!!! Less than 2 weeks until Christmas Day and I and excited. I have 4 events to attend (starting tonight!!!) along with my sister showing up anytime between a couple of days before Christmas to a couple of days after, and spending a few weeks with me again! YAY ME!!!!

  • Luna and the Lie by Mariana Zapata <— MARIANA ZAPATA SLOW-BURN ALERT!! And it’s on KU too!!!) Squeeeeeeeeeee!!!! YAY US!!! She’s happy in her life but she’s got some regrets (and secrets)… “…when one of those secrets involves the man who signs her paycheck, she can’t find it in her to regret it. Despite the fact that he’s not the friendliest man in the world. Or the most patient. Sometimes there are things you’re better off keeping to yourself…”

Jan: BTW, in case anyone hasn’t heard, Mariana Zapata’s new book Luna and the Lie is supposed to be out VERY SOON too!! OMG. There’s so much cool new stuff I’m nearly hyperventilating. *sets off big glitterbomb*

Niki: Luna and the Lie is finally live!!! Whhooohooo!!!

  • Unzipped by Lauren Blakely <— LAUREN BLAKELY ALERT!! I thought this one went live a few days ago, but I’m under the impression it was just the audiobook that was live, ’cause officially? This one is LIVE TODAY! He wants to win his ex back and is planning a grand gesture! “...if you’re going to grand gesture the ever-loving hell out of a second chance, you need to pull out all the stops. There’s only one little problem. My college girlfriend isn’t the one who shows up when I play my “I’ll do anything to win you back” tune. The woman who flings open the second-floor window tells me my ex doesn’t live here anymore. But she’ll help me win her back…”
  • Conflicted (The Corded Saga Book 3) by Alyssa Rose Ivy <— DYSTOPIAN LIVE!!!

Jean: One thriller that stands out (and maybe that’s because I just saw the trailer for it with Sandra Bullock) is The Bird Box!!! …read it on one day! Loved it! Great review and agree with all your comments!

Maryse: Ohhhh Jean I LOVED The Bird Box!!!!

Michele G: I’m super excited about the Bird Box movie coming out… I definitely suggest you read the book first. That book was so much about using your own imagination as you read that I don’t know how a movie will do it justice…of course I will watch to find out.

Tasha J: So, I just saw Bird Box releasing on Netflix in 10 days. I had no idea this was even being made into a movie. Now, I feel pressured to read the book ASAP so i don’t watch the movie first.

Amy: I really liked it!! :D Not terrifying but definitely creepy with enough intensity to keep me reading.

  • Amour Battu: Timeless Love: A series of Standalone novels Book 2 by MJ Fields <— BROKEN MILITARY HERO ALERT!! “…I turned from her for the red white and blue. Because war, destruction, hell even death was more welcome than the possibility of hurting her. I didn’t deserve her, and she sure as f*@^ didn’t deserve me…” (P.S. it’s a standalone but part of this one’s series: Cinq A’ Sept (Timeless Love: A series of Standalone novels Book 1) <— Remember?? Which had a forbiddeny older woman/younger man relationship!)
  • LOCK by Debra Anastasia <— LIVE!! DEBRA ANASTASIA ALERT!!! He met her (the sister of an infamous assassin) in a gang fight and fell in love… “...Now, she’s a prisoner, doing everything she can to keep her family safe. And I’m her guard, doing everything I can to set her free.  I’d take a bullet for her. Hell, I’d take a few. In this dark, twisted world, we only have each other. But I have to wonder, is that enough?” CAN BE READ AS A STANDALONE!!
  • Grim Christmas (Daughters of Beasts Book 4) by  T. S. Joyce <— LIVE!!!
  • Paper Princess: A Novel (The Royals Book 1) by Erin Watt <— HUGELY POPULAR 2 years ago and still making our crew squee!!! Jen loved this one!
Jen: I finished Paper Princess-Erin Watt and immediately went on to Broken Prince: A Novel (The Royals Book 2), I am telling you these books are crack to me. So freaking addicting! The last series I read that I felt this way about was The Keatyn Chronicles-Jillian Dodd.
  • Mistletoe Wishes: a holiday standalone by Mayra Statham <— LIVE!! SEXY CHRISTMAS SHORT! The authors warning is sweet!! “Warning: This is an OTT, tooth-achingly sweet holiday read with a super sexy twist that will have you wishing for mistletoe!”
  • Runaround (Getaway Series Book 4) by Jay Crownover <— LIVE!!! JAY CROWNOVER ALERT!! HE’S TROUBLE & SHE’S A FOREST RANGER… “…The leggy, blonde forest ranger might very well be the one person in the world important enough to finally keep him in one place. Only, Ten isn’t impressed by Webb’s knack for finding trouble. And no matter how hard he tries to shake it, he can’t escape his bad habit of falling into the deep end of questionable decisions…”

This time as 18-year-old Abigail Henderson with the extraordinary purpose of stopping a shooting at Margaret Fielder High. While falling in love with a teacher who has a shared love of cheese fries, Abigail is quickly learning that she’s been given what seems like an impossible task...”
  • With My Heart (Guarding My Heart Book 2) by Peter Styles & J.P. Oliver  <— LIVE!! M/M ROMANCE
  • Heartbreak Warfare by by Heather M. Orgeron  & Kate Stewart  <— BACK ON THE LIST ‘CAUSE IT’S STILL MAKING EMOTIONAL WAVES!! I five-starred it!

Swath: I dont think I would have picked this book if not for this review so thank you for that. This is probably one of the best racing to finish portions of a book. I was not sure whom to choose but somehow the end made a lot of sense to me as I felt it was right at that time. Yes things happen, people change. Mostly we keep it and dont act on it but when expected happens I guess you no longer can control. with that said, definitely one of the best books of 2018 for the sheer emotional content involved !

Tara: Definitely 5+ stars! Hands down my favorite book of 2018! Loved it…Drive is a close 2nd :-)

Ashley: Just finished it this morning and just WOW! Total book hangover happening over here! I stayed up last night super late despite the fact that our baby has been getting up at 4 am the past week!!! Definitely my absolute best read for 2018!
  • The Price of Mason (Forbidden Men Book 10) by Linda Kage <— RECENT RELEASE AND WE HAVE INFO (and feedback)!!! HE BECAME A PROSTITUTE TO HELP PROVIDE FOR HIS MOM & SISTER… “…Two years later, this job has begun to kill me in every way but physically, until SHE comes along. Reese is the breath of fresh air I need. She makes me smile, she makes me laugh, she makes me want more. But how can we ever be together after all the choices I’ve made?...”

Lauren: It’s book 1 (Price of a Kiss (Forbidden Men Book 1), only in Mason’s POV!!! Loved book 1 so I’m excited to read this one!

Linda: Hard subject matter but soooo good.

  • Jamieson Finn (Redemption Series Book 3) by Sandi Lynn <— SANI LYNN’S LATEST IS LIVE!!! THE TRAUMA SURGEON & THE NEUROSURGEON ALERT!! “...I was making a fresh start and any trust I had in men was gone. I would never make that mistake again. I save lives for a living and that has to be my number one priority. Then I met Jamieson Finn. He was sexy, smart, arrogant and exactly what I didn’t need in my life…”
  • Method 15/33 by Shannon Kirk <— CREEPY/KIDNAPPED/WHO’S THE CRAZY ONE? ALERT!! I loved this one BIG time and it’s on super-bargain sale!!! P.S. Here’s my review.

bev: Dumplin soundtrack was just released. Dolly of course. You all need to read the book. I should read Puddin.

Michele G: for those of you who haven’t read the book yet and have watched the movie…read the book. It’s still better! There’s just something about being in the character’s mind…especially with this book.

Tessa: I just finished it, but it was really fun and made me laugh.  :)

MichelleS: My favorite November read: Kingdom of Ash… which, came out end of October, but I didn’t start until two days ago! Gasp! I’m savoring every page, since it’s the last in the series. Sigh….

and then…

MichelleS: I’m STILL reading Kingdom of Ash. It’s sooooo long, but soooo good, I’m savoring every line. May do a reread of whole series!

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree… how sparkly and beautiful you can beeeeee….


Oooooohhhh YESSSS!!! I was just adding the second book in this series to my TBR list from a few “new release lists” ago, and now my friend and fellow book blogger, Angie is reading and swooning over the entire series as a whole (she says they’re all standalones but would better be read in order since it follows a timeline of the brothers). YAY ME!!

This series sounds like it’s right up my alley. Oh how I love, and am in total awe of… sexy, heroic men in uniform (just check out my HUGE love of Tessa Bailey’s cops). I can’t wait to start these!!

About book #1:

Everyone knows that if you play with fire you’ll end up getting burned…

What happens when you attend a first responder’s bachelor auction with your best friends? Well, if your name is Madison Kelly like me, your friends end up bidding on a date for you with your high school crush.

That’s right. Even back when I was ‘Fatty Maddie’ to all my classmates, I had eyes for the quarterback of our football team. Not like I was the only one.

Mauro Bianco may fight fires for a living, but he still sets my heart ablaze. One look at the rugged, muscular man he’s turned into and I want to slide down his pole.

One date. That’s all I’m committed to. A few hours and I can tuck him back into that tattered old shoebox in my closet.

As always, the universe has other plans. I never would’ve predicted that in a matter of days he’d turn from my dream guy into my business partner-and that’s when things got interesting.

Kristin needs our book help! It kind of starts off with a spoiler pretty quick, although maybe it’s at the beginning of the book? Either way… proceed with caution. ;) I spoiler alerted.

She asks:

Had a reader question about a book I cannot remember.

It was about a girl who was best friends with a boy

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

who died and everyone thought they were dating but she was keeping his secret of him being gay from his brothers.

She has always liked his brother.

I cannot remember which book it is!

Anyone know it?

Bri: Rule: A Marked Men Novel by Jay Crownover

Leslie M: Yup, definitely Rule. I remember this one.


Madison is looking for your favorite “one night stand” book recommendations!!

She asks:


I just wanted some suggestions about books that include one night stands. It’s possible that you already have a list for this and I didn’t see it, but I thought I would ask to make sure!

Love your blog and I think it’s so helpful!!

I know I’ve seen a few that sound awesome in the new releases each week, with added mixed-tropes of an ooooops pregnancy, or the one night stand suddenly showing up as her new boss, or the disappointment of the one night stand leaving without a trace. Stuff like that. I LOVE that!

My first choice will be one of my absolute favorites, Mystery Man (The Dream Man Series Book 1) by Kristen Ashley. This starts off with so much anticipation and flirtation (and excitement when her huge crush finally notices her and steals away with her at a bar) ….

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

…then a killer kick to the gut, destroying her heart in the process, when he leaves… no names. No promises. AND THAT IS JUST HOW IT STARTS. Oh HOW I LOVED it. And FUMED!!!!! And PINED!!! And then it took me on a roller-coaster! One of my all time favorite books EVER. P.S. Here’s my review.

P.S. In the meantime… here are ALL the posts tagged one night stand on the blog. Lots of good suggestions there too! :D

Do you have an absolute favorite that she (and we) must read? Let’s make a list!

Courtney: Following

Joy: Jana Aston has written sexy, steamy, hilariously amazing one-night stand books. They’re all must-reads. The Wrong Series has 4 books: Wrong, Right, Fling and Trust. Then there is Good Girl, Sure Thing and Good Time!

Here are a few others that I love:

Leslie M: I know I have read tons of romances that started off as a one night stand. But of course I can’t remember them. Stupid book amnesia. A few I do remember are:



Tee hee!! YES. *nods emphatically* YOU (and I) KNOW THIS ONE!!

Christine has a reader question and I’m thrilled to say she’s come to the right place for this book-quest!!!!! It’s one of our original indie “old-school” forbiddeny favorites and I’m so jealous of anyone that hasn’t read it yet, and gets to experience it for the first time.

Our book community gets brand new members every day, so I don’t feel so bad spouting my older 5-star favorites regularly ’cause they are brand new treasures to them!

In this case, it seems Christine HAS read it (mentioning sad and funny), but she’s obviously looking to re-read it or recommend it (and I don’t blame her).

She asks:

Looking for the book.

I think called Slammed. Or Slam.

A teacher moves in next door falls for younger neighbor,

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

*spoiler alert*

…her mother dies . She writes poetry.

It’s great and sad and funny.

Do you remember the author because I can’t find it searching by title?

YES!!! YAY!!!! This is one of my forever favorites, and it’s called Slammed: A Novel by Colleen Hoover, and it was the very first book I even read with this awesome, forbiddeny theme, and it was so pure and rich and perfect (and angsty!!!).

In fact, here’s my 5-star book review (showing the original cover and everything).

Leslie M: Slammed!! Aaaah, I loved this one. Remember the old school new adult gems? Thoughtless, Easy, Beautiful Disaster…

Christine: Yes, that’s it!

Maryse: YAY!!! Another one solved!! :D

<— Kill Code is the first book in an upcoming trilogy by Luna Kayne, and is now up for preorder (going live next month). And… we’re having a cover reveal!! P.S.  It’s a military thriller suspense!!

Ten years ago, a covert government operation gone wrong separated Jack from Jessa, the girl he promised he would never leave.

Jack’s special forces team receives a tip, leading them to a remote farmhouse in search of a group of hackers led by the elusive Zane who work for the same person he holds responsible for Jessa’s death, ten years earlier.

Past and present collide as what was once lost is now standing in front of him and appears to be working for the very evil he is trying to end.

But is everything as it seems as secrets begin to unravel and pieces are put back in their proper places?

And will the last missing piece, the answer to all of their problems, be found in time?


P.S. Luna will be sponsoring one of my newsletters next month (on her release week!!) and hopefully, we’ll also have a fun author guest post, or a five fun facts on the trilogy! *fingers crossed* I can’t wait to find out more about this series! Military men and thrillers. YES PLEASE!! ;)

It’s Ashley’s turn!! This is her very first “Best of List” with us so I’m excited to see what she’s into!! She’s been with us awhile, but finally made herself known in 2017 (and totally made me snort with her very first two comments – which I’ve included below). ;)

She says:

I’ve been lurking for years

and then…

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.

*snort!!!* LOL!!! You crack me up. And I’m SO glad you’ve officially joined us my friend!

And now… her favorites! P.S. I found a few of her past comments in regards to some of  her favorites below, so I included them also:

Maybe Now (Maybe Someday Book 2) by Colleen Hoover <— I read this in one night and loved it!!! I loved hearing Maggie and Jake’s story. Swoon!

Binding 13: Boys of Tommen #1 / Keeping 13: Boys of Tommen #2 by Chloe Walsh <— This is one of those that sticks with you… it was heartbreaking and happy all at once.

Good Time by Jana Aston <— This is my fave of hers and she’s one of my fave authors!

Ashley: Absolutely everything by Jana Aston is amazing!!

Whiskey Prince (Taking Risks Book 1) by Toni Aleo <— I don’t always like books set in other countries; it bothers me to try to read the slang. But this one is amazing!! Declan equals swoon!

One Small Thing by Erin Watt <— This one didn’t make a lot of the “best of” lists but I really liked it!

The Beau & the Belle by RS Grey <— I love love love this book! Beau is hottttt and I liked hearing about New Orleans!

Keep Her Safe: A Novel by KA Tucker <— This one has some sweet romantic parts but it’s also full of plot twists and mysteries. I loved it!

Uncharted: a survival love story by Julie Johnson <— I’m a sucker for a good forbiddeny deserted island love story!

Ashley: Omg Uncharted is amazing!!! AMAZING! I’m 1/3 way through and I can tell it’s going to be one of my faves!!

Flip Trick by Amo Jones <— This book was so good! I was looking for a 90s skateboarding vibe when I found it and I loved it!



BREAKING NEWS UPDATE!!!! OMG LIVEEEEE!!!! Mariana Zapata’s “Luna and the Lie” is LIVE (and it’s on KU too!!!) Squeeeeeeeeeee!!!! YAY US!!! ➔➔➔➔➔➔➔➔

She’s happy in her life but she’s got some regrets (and secrets)…

“…when one of those secrets involves the man who signs her paycheck, she can’t find it in her to regret it. Despite the fact that he’s not the friendliest man in the world. Or the most patient.

Sometimes there are things you’re better off keeping to yourself…”

HAPPY TUESDAY NEW RELEASE DAY!!! It’s not the biggest list we’ve had but definitely has great looking options, and I’ll be adding more throughout the day. :D

Blurb jolts? Absolutely! Like that one to the left – Rum & Coke (He’s an escort by night, and a school teacher by day, and she’s a single mom in Vegas trying to make ends meet), Carnival (oh that blurb!! Super clevery written, and together they’re toxic, and apart they are lost… sounds like it’s gonna be angsty!!), Taming Eastyn (recluse? He’s closed himself off, and then he sees her…), Ride the Storm (she’s in her 40s and feels lonely, and he’s an Ex-Navy Seal!!) and one from yesterday that definitely gave me a jolt!! A Me and You Thing (she’s got the perfect life, and family, and then she goes away on a 2-week volunteer trip… “She doesn’t expect the trip to change her life forever. But it does. It changes everything…“) Ohhhhhh!!!!!

And of course, so many of us are buddy reading Verity by Colleen Hoover (me included!!) and you’ll see the reactions from those that have finished it a little further below. I’m SO EXCITED!!!!!

While you’re here, don’t forget to check out yesterday’s earlybirds, a new review, and in case you missed it, Friday’s mega finds!!

LET’S READ!!!! :D !!!!

  • Verity by Colleen Hoover <— WE ARE SO VERY CONFUSED & LOVING IT!!!!

Lisa: I read Verity over the weekend too and thought it was phenomenal. It’s been a while since reading a story left me feeling that anxious and unsettled. I didn’t see that end coming at all. I never even suspected something like that. It’s so hard to find something else to read when you’ve been wowed by a book, but I think it’ll have to be something with kittens and rainbows and unicorns farting glitter!!!

Shara: I just finished verity by colleen Hoover. I love her books and I loved this one. I could not put it down. So good! Go in blind.

Amy: So, I finished Verity and…damn. *shakes head* That was crazy. If you’re a CH fan, give it a shot. Just don’t expect it to be one of her romances! ;)

Michele G: I started Verity Friday morning and finished it on Saturday…it was a crazy good trip!! I stand by my statement that I think Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher are playing a prank on us…I keep waiting for her to say…JK it was really Tarryn who wrote the book…but seriously, it shows her wide range….it was twisty good!!

Doretta: Another creepy child book…Innocent in Death by JD Robb

Tessa: Finished Innocent in Death. I swear, the thing I love most about those is Eve and Rourk together. *grins* Then all the secondary character’s lives. This one, though, I totally didn’t see who it was until about thirty pages before the big reveal. I love that.
