Saturday July 4th 2015 HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!! SALE UPDATES:

<— Lauren just found us this one, and she’s excited!! LOL! “OMG, OMG!!!!!! Victoria Ashley released Cale (Walk Of Shame #3) a few days early!!!! It’s LIVE!!!

AND… Kim found us these: “Some, not all, of Mia Sheridan’s books are on sale for $.99 right now. Archer’s Voice and Kyland are included in the sale!!” I LOVE Archer’s Voice like crazy!!!! (Here’s my 5-star review)

    

We have a little bit of EVERYTHING on today’s list, from a few brand new releases, to reader recommendations & favorite series that have been bundled. Looking for a specific genre? They all look sooooo good! From comedy romance, to dark reads to psych thrillers, to billionaires, to bad-boy fighters, the emotionally scarred and all! You’re in the mood for something in particular? I bet it’s here.

Okay so what I’m reading right now? THIS!! Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny <— I’ve changed it up a bit to keep up with my 2015 Reading Challenge list. And since one of my friends is reading this one (hi Kayla!! :D  ), and due to my own interest in this story (’cause I LOVED the “Girls Next Door” show) I had to jump in. Yep! An autobiography, and this is no hardship for me ’cause I love autobiographies (especially the juicy ones). The ex-Playboy girls sure seemed like quite the story and I’m having fun! I should be finished tonight so review to come shortly. And I certainly have a few things to say about this one…

Teri: I finished this yesterday. Very enlightening read! I want a Bridget tell-all now! She was always my favorite :)

Maryse: I loved Bridget the most too!

Carrie: I want to read this :)  Bridget was always my favorite!

Tessa: Holly Madison, huh? You’ll have to tell us. She always seemed so calculating. When it was on, I saw little bits. The other two were seemed sweet, but she just seemed cold emotionally.

And then next, it’s gonna be hard for me to choose… likely something from my latest TBR list, or the latest Kristen Ashley biker book (Ride Steady (Chaos), OR Jezebel that I’ve been dying to know what all the twist-fuss is about!! I’m about 40% into Sloth, so I might switch back to that…

P.S. Let me know if I’m missing any or if you loved any (from this list or elsewhere).

EBOOK BARGAINS & READER RECOMMENDATIONS (NOTE: bargain priced when I added them, but prices can change on Amazon, so make sure to check before you finalize your order).

  1. Wasted Lust: (A 321 Spinoff) by J.A. Huss <— JUST RELEASED!!! This one came out just a week ago and I missed it! SO here it is. :D Author says CAN be read as a standalone but best to read the others before it ’cause the character in this one was a child in the other books (now this is HER book). The love of her life leaves her for her own good… “Sasha Cherlin died the night she let Nick Tate walk out on her for a life of crime. Her very essence was destroyed when they broke their promise to one another…
  2. Three, Two, One (321): (A Dark Suspense) by J.A. Huss <— DARK READ ALERT!! And for those that missed it, here is the first book, that had so many jaws dropping! Donna loved it saying: “I’m at the 69% page of 321! Please tell me if I am going to be heartbroken so, I can prepare myself.. Loving this creepy raunchy book” and then… “321 was definitely my kind of book 5 stars for me.” and Fabi agrees: “…it was a 4.5 star read for me. I may be a little stingy with my stars, idk. But it was good.”
  3. One to Chase (One to Hold Book 7) by Tia Louise <— Can be read as a standalone and just recently released!
  4. Bang Switch (Code 11- KPD SWAT Book 3) by Lani Lynn Vale <— JUST RELEASED SEXY BAD-BOY COP ALERT!! “Lachlan Downy was a lover, not a fighter. Okay, he wouldn’t lie, he was a fighter, too. But nobody had to know that. Especially not Memphis Tennessee Conner and her stuffy attitude when it came to cops and ‘men like him.’
  5. A Forever Family (Forever Trilogy, 6) by Sandi Lynn <— JUST RELEASED!!! I remember this series being really popular a few years ago!
  6. Jezebel by K. Larsen <— JAW-DROPPING TWIST & JUST RE-RELEASED!!! This one had tongues wagging in excitement upon it’s release a few weeks ago, but the attention was overwhelming and the author took it down for a bit while she got a handle on some anxiety issues. Well… she’s back, it’s back AND!!! She’s released a brand new novella, too! YAY US!! :D
  7. Lying in Wait: A Companion Novella to Jezebel by K. Larsen  <— JUST RELEASED & IT’S THE FOLLOW UP NOVELLA to Jezebel!
  8. Lust (The Fight Club Book 6) by Becca Jameson<— JUST RELEASED MMA FIGHTER/EMT ALERT! He keeps having to rescue her… LOL!! And he’s hot! “When Zane arrives to rescue a woman trapped under her back porch, he almost swallows his tongue at the first sight of her fine legs and sexy butt. If that isn’t enough, Abby can’t seem to stay out of trouble. He has to rescue her yet again the following week from an accident…” Sounds like it could be guilty pleasure fun. Plus, of course, there’s danger when her best friend gets in trouble with the mob…
  9. PLAYER by Joanna Blake <— FAMOUS FOOTBALL PLAYER ALERT! Bargain priced and his childhood neighbor is not impressed with him at all… “he’s even forgotten me, the snot nosed brat from next door. So much so that he hits on me when he comes in to eat at the barbecue place I work at to pay my way through school. But the jokes on him when I turn him down in front of all his meathead buddies.” Tee hee!!!
  10. The Kind Worth Killing: A Novel by Peter Swanson <— PSYCH THRILLER ON SUPER-SALE ALERT!! & HIGHLY loved by those that love the psych thrillers, and by many in our own reading crew. It’s one of Sadie’s absolute favorites and she’ll throw peanuts at you if you don’t read it. Sadie: “ I have been telling maryse to read “the kind worth killing” forever so I’ll throw some peanuts for them.” I totally one clicked it Sadie, I promise! :D
  11. Fearless: The Complete Novel (Dartmoor Book 1) by Lauren Gilley <— GRITTY BIKER BOOK ALERT!! My book-bud Kandace LOVED THIS one!! “Last week I picked up Fearless by Lauren Gilley and absolutely loved it. It’s a Motorcycle Club story! This book has everything we love in our MC books: gritty, intense, amazing club dynamics, protective and fierce bikers, a epic love story, strong h. You all will love Mercy. He’s something special. He’s all alpha. Fearless is a standalone. It’s over 800 pages but I promise you’ll wish it was longer. You won’t want to let them go.”
  12. Power Play (Risky Business Book 1) by Tiffany Snow <— TIFFANY SNOW/SALLY LOVED THIS RECENT RELEASE ALERT!! So it’s back on the list! She says: “I READ it and LOVED it ! If you are a Kathleen Turner series fan I KNOW you will love it! If you need a little something more than just romance in your books like ME then Romance/Suspense is probably what you are looking for…”
  13. All-American Girl by Meg Cabot <— I heard a TON of squeeing over this author at RT 2015, and this one is on super-sale! Teen love and she’s the middle child between 2 sisters, and she’s in love with her big sister’s bf, and the president’s son just might be in love with her! *wheeeee!!!*
  14. Unbeautiful Series: The Complete Set by Jessica Sorensen <— BUNDLED SERIES 2 BOOKS/BOTH EMOTIONALLY SCARRED & BARGAIN PRICED ALERT!! She’s the beautiful cheerleader with emotional scars and anger, and he’s the tattooed & pierced bad-boy that is mute! “Maybe if they knew, they wouldn’t fear me so much. Then again, maybe they’d fear me more.” Ohhhhh!!!
  15. Nice Girl to Love: Trilogy Boxed Set (#1 Resisting, #2 Falling, #3 Choosing) (CAN’T RESIST) by Violet Duke <— BUNDLED SERIES 3 BOOKS LOVE TRIANGLE & BARGAIN PRICED ALERT!! OMG is it gonna be a LOVE triangle? She’s helping her best friend raise his little girl, and a bad-boy lawyer is trying to entice her… “Abby Bartlett is the quintessential nice girl. Between teaching, volunteering, completing her PhD, and helping her best friend raise his daughter, Abby never gets the chance to be anything but nice. That is, until the all-wrong-for-her man she’s only ever known from afar starts daring her to simply take that chance for herself…

Scott <— BUNDLED SERIES & BARGAIN PRICED ALERT!! “Once a serial trilogy, The Billionaire’s Obsession is now complete with a bonus story in this complete collection about Simon and Kara…”
  17. The Consequence of Loving Colton by Rachel Van Dyken <— BROTHER’S BEST FRIEND ALERT & SOUNDS LIKE SO MUCH ROMANCE LOVE TRIANGLE FUN!!! She’s into her brother’s best friend (sexy firefighter) but he only sees her as his friend’s “little sister”. But they end up being last-minute dates to her brother’s wedding. And then… her best guy-friend from college shows up to the wedding, and he likes her… and then it’s war! LOL! And Katherine just said: “Whatever you do – do NOT read “The Consequences of Loving Colton” in public. I could hold in giggles – but full on snort-laugh was not going to be subdued, and I did that a lot with this novel!:P YAY!!!
  18. And for AUDIOBOOK LOVERS :P

    For those going on a road trip soon, or maybe you’ve got some projects that require both hands this weekend but still allows you to “listen”… check out the free audible trial + 2 free ebooks deal —>

    1. AND! Here’s the fun-tool again! —> Find out which of YOUR Kindle books are available as AUDIOBOOKS AT A BARGAIN-PRICE!<—Audiobooks for ebook super-sale prices. I’m thrilled with that, and what’s fun is you can flip flop from reading it, to listening to it without losing your spot… This thing is so cool (Amazon calls it “Matchmaker“)! It’s an Amazon feature, that scans your Kindle books and will list all of the ones you have that are also available as an audiobook at a discounted price (not normal audiobook prices). This way, you can switch back and forth, seamlessly between your ebooks and your audiobooks. VERY COOL! (This is the “Whispersync” thingie). :D
    2. Fallen Crest High: Fallen Crest Series, Book 1 by Tijan <— HOLY MOLY it’s SO CHEAP!!!!!!!!! The audiobook version is available via Amazon’s “whisper sync” (meaning if you already have the Kindle book, you can get the audio for SUPER-CHEAP!!!) and considering the book version is free… OMG). MINE. Totally one-clicked this. Now… and I gonna read it, or listen to it? ;) No matter what, I HAVE TO get this series under my belt. Melanie just reminded me saying: “Maryse, I was getting up to date on my news feeds, and read that Tijan is really close to publishing the next book in the Fallen Crest Series. That’s when it got me thinking back to your TBR list and recalled this wasn’t on it. You HAVE to bump this up on your list somewhere so you can join Team Mason.” Yep. I think I have peanuts in my hair again…

Looks like my fellow readers are antsy for more personalized reader recommendations! This is getting to be a weekly favorite. I knew it would, ’cause there’s nothing better than 1.) Getting to know our book-buds and 2.) finding out what their favorite books are. After all, if we have similar tastes, these very books might just rock our worlds, too!

Grey: So, I’ve got my butterfly net out and I’m ready to collect all of the thrown peanuts. I’d love to get suggestions…and this is my trusted spot for recommendations. It would be awesome if everyone just posted with their favorite or couple favorite books.. *throws peanut* LOL!

Amy: Ooooh Grey, you are just asking for it with that kind of request…you’re bound to get bombarded with recs now!! Maryse has started posting readers’ favorites lists on Saturdays…I can’t wait to see whose list is up next!

I got just the thing, Grey (and crew!!). MichelleS has been a long-time member of our community and loves a little bit of everything! Historical, fantasy, paranormal and of course contemporary romance. Take a look at her list (and notes). I have read and absolutely LOVED the majority of her favorites on this list so I know those that I haven’t read will be awesome!

MichelleS: I am SURE I have left off something fantastic. I am only including the genres and titles that I think may interest fellow readers of this blog. If I go way back, I will never get through the list. These are the books I have read more than once – which is kind of my big decider for 5 stars.

Who’s in the mood for a foul-mouthed sex-addict male stripper? Book #3 was JUST RELEASED and wow, the blurb for #1 has me BLUSHING big time. Looks like we’ll do more than blush, though. ;)

Maryse: Just by the blurb I’m allllll *whoa*. “When I’m not f&%king, I’m slinging drinks at Walk Of Shame or stripping my way into your bed; another thing I’m good at. Every woman’s darkest fantasy brought to life.” But!! Then he meets that girl that changes the whole game (and she’s not interested). WOW! The reviews for this one make me wanna one-click it SO BAD!! Okay… done. LOL! … Those reviews (well the titles) had me grinning like mad, excited to give this BAD BAD BOY a try.

Tanya: Holy Crap Maryse, you weren’t kidding about SLADE, I saw what you wrote and went to see for myself. Oh yeah that was soooo one clicked.

Jean: OK I just checked out Slade too…….I am speechless and of course I want to read it! :) Thanks for pointing it out Tanya!

Maryse: RIGHT!!!?? SLADE???? I gotta start this!!! Has anyone started it yet? Writing style? Flow? Slade? Whatdya think so far?

Lindsey: I read Slade–it was hot! Good too.

Lee: I loved Slade! 5* read

Kelly: This was HOT. Dirty, dirty boy! Loved his filthy mouth

Jean: Hey guys! Finished Slade late last night and although I struggled with the beginning, I was flipping the pages for the last 50%. It was a slow connection with the characters initially, but eventually I got there. And it definitely left me wanting to know more about the guys who will be featured in the next 2 books, Hemy and Cale, who were also hot, confident strippers (with issues of course)! Slade had the dirtiest mouth and the sex was HOT! (I often skim like you do Maryse so that is saying something).

Amy: I’m adding Slade to my TBR list, Jean. I never turn down a dirty-talking hottie! In a book, of course. ;)

About book #1:

My name is Slade Merrick and I’m a f**king sex addict . . . I’ve been told it’s a problem. But I see it as a passion; something that I’m good at. And who the f**k stops something that they’re good at?

They want me to seek help; get my c**k in check. Don’t judge my lifestyle. You’re no better than me. Just admit it, you like to f**k too. Sex is what I do best; my own personal high, so I embrace it instead of being ashamed. When I’m not f**king, I’m slinging drinks at Walk Of Shame or stripping my way into your bed; another thing I’m good at. Every woman’s darkest fantasy brought to life.

So, am I stopping? Fuck no. Sex is beautiful, raw and erotic and I get off knowing I can have it with anyone I want . . . with the exception of her.

Aspen.

She walks into the club swaying those hips, instantly drawing my c**k to attention. She’s pure perfection. That is, until she opens that mouth, drawing me in and for the first time in forever I want something more than sex. I want her and she hates it. Things get dirty. Dirty is what I like; it’s how I live. But . . . she’s playing a game she can never win.

Jezebel by K. Larsen <— IS it my imagination!??? It’s BACK UP my friends!!!! For some reason it was up for only a few days, BLEW READER’S MINDS and then it disappeared off of Amazon, and I have no idea why… Ohhhhh the intrigue ’cause EVERYONE seemed to have LOVED the first version.

AND NOW THE COMPANION NOVELLA IS UP TOO!!! —-> Lying in Wait: A Companion Novella to Jezebel

Amy: Maryse, don’t forget about Jezebel in the midst of this week’s bookgasms. ;) That. Freaking. Ending. I was REELING. Even if it seems slow at parts and even if you think you have things figured out, stick with it! The ending will have you saying WTF, even if you don’t ever say that, LOL!! …  I was saying yesterday that I was pretty sure I had figured out what was happening (the twist), and I even started to feel a little indifferent towards the story near the end because I was right about it, but then BA-BAM!!! What happened was so WTF to me and was so NOT the ending I was expecting. If for nothing else about it, read Jezebel for that twist. ;)

Joy: OMG …OMG… OMG…. I just finished Jezebel!!! Who else has read this???

Brenda: Omg!!! It was so good! I read all day. Could not put it down!

Milissa: Omg has anyone read Jezebel?I can normally see how the book will end. But let me tell you I was totally mind f**ked. Yall have got to read it..

Maryse:  I have it!! I got it before it went off Amazon, so I’m waiting for it to be available again so we can all read it together. :D

Di-Ann: Oh my goodness. I just finished Jezebel by K. Larsen and OMG. So unique, beautifully written and that ending slayed me. Just when you think you have figured it out, NOT!! I dare anyone to tell me they saw it coming! LOVED IT!!!!!

Ela: Maryse you must read Jezebel by K. Larsen just as your crew pointed out!!!! I set up a spoiler thread on your blog

Okay I just found out from the author’s Facebook post here about why it went down… she had an anxiety attack!!:

“…Jezebel was killing it rank wise- I should have been celebrating and jumping for joy- instead- I was chewing anxiety pills like candy. I cried. I didn’t have dessert. I didn’t drink anything but water. I laid in bed all day. I lost 8 lbs total since June 5th. I didn’t sleep. My heart rate was over 100 for 7 days. From Saturday the 6th until Saturday the 13th I. Didn’t. Function. If you’ve read my bio- you know all of that is 100% the opposite of who I am.

In that mindset- I thought pulling Jezebel would alleviate my anxiety. Anxiety is a fairly normal reaction to stress…”

Ahhhh…. okay that explains it. I want to hug her!!

BUT!!! IT IS LIVE once again and I hear the twist in this book is SO CRAZY it will blow your mind. Author also says it’s a standalone even though there’s a crazy twist (so I assume no cliffy) but there will be a novella released, too.

When asked on her Facebook page if it was a standalone, she says:

Kind of. There is a small novella that comes out June 3rd. But, otherwise, Yes!

sidenote from Maryse – I think she means July? *crosses fingers* OH!!! My crossed fingers worked ’cause HERE IT IS ALREADY LIVE!!! Lying in Wait: A Companion Novella to Jezebel <— *snort* :P  

Okay YAY!!! I finally get to read it! I bought it when it was first released, but held off to read it with everyone… now that it’s available again, I’m on it!

“Guess the book” time! Dana needs out book help! We still need help with this reader question! We tried on Facebook, but our fellow reader said still no go, so maybe someone here knows?

She asks:

“I’ve been driving myself crazy for the past week trying to remember a book I read. Not sure when I read it, I need to start keeping a book journal.

Anyway, the book was about a woman who was interested in learning about being a submissive and had a girlfriend who was into that scene.

The girlfriend was close friends with a man who was a dominant. He worked with the woman via online chat, teaching her the basics. I believe the women worked for a catering company and the man was a well established businessman in their city.

I cannot, for the life of me, remember the author or the title of the book. If you could make some suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it! I swear I didn’t make up this book!”

And here were some of the Facebook guesses:

Kandace: I dunno … The Agreement by LE Lund?

Sherry: Maybe check Dawn Robertson‘s books…

Dana: Thanks for the suggestions ladies but unfortunately those weren’t it. Though because of your suggestions I found some new books to read!!!

And now a few more:

Kelly: Could it be Nexus?

Maryse: Which Nexus, Kelly? There are a bunch on Amazon.

Maryse: Dana!!! I know of one that sounds very much like this but it was DARK AS HECK!!! It’s called Tender Mercies by Kitty Thomas. Her friend was into the scene, and she ended up meeting a Dom online and falling for him and moving to an island with it’s own set of laws to be with him (since it’s a D/s island, the women didn’t have any rights for the most part)… once she got there, she realized he was an absolute MONSTER. And she was stuck… Here is my review.

Anyone else want to venture a guess? Submit your guesses and there will be a $10 Amazon gift card giveaway for the first correct answer! Don’t forget… ALL are welcome to comment even if someone has already answered, ’cause:

1.) who knows if the answer is correct? You might have another guess… and it might be the right one (we’ll have the reader who asked the question pop in and let us know)

and

2.) Let us know if you’ve read it and what you thought. :)

This series is L-O-V-E-D by many in our very own crew here!!!

Michelle: I have to plug it again because it really is one of my favorite series – House of Korba came out today which is the newest book in the Ghostbird series by CL Stone. They are crazy addicting… It looks like a young adult novel but especially in the later books, ramps up on mature topics and romance. It is already riske since there is one girl and 7 guys who are all into her. And the Academy part is not what you think…ie not just a school.

Fabi: Michelle, I downloaded it. It sounds right up my alley in reading taste. Thanks for the recommendation.

Tessa: Anyone read the Ghost Bird series? It’s a YA book, but pretty good. The character is a Mary Sue, but it works. Normally Mary Sues become DNF books, but the relationships within and why she is one has me hooked. I’m reading Night School just to ease out of my YA mood and read Second Debt. I for a bit contemplated just reading the rest of the series rather than the one I’ve been dying to read for months.

Michelle: Tessa, I LOVE the ghostbird series. Each book gets better for me! It’s one of my auto buys now and there are going to be a lot of books in the series – like I think she has 20+ planned.

Tessa: I went back to the Ghost Bird series. *sighs* I love this series so much.

Tessa: Finished Ghost Bird 4. Still love it, though the suggestion of where it’s going had me going, huh? *grins* I still love the series.

About book #1:

With an agoraphobic mother and a barely-there father, Sang Sorenson abhors the isolation keeping her in the shadows. What she craves is a fresh start and to be accepted as ordinary, because for her, being different meant being cast out alone.
When her family moves to a new school district, Sang infiltrates a group of boys, each nearly perfect in every way. Grateful for an influence outside of her parents’ negativity, she quickly bonds with the boys, hoping to blend in and learn from them what it means to have friends.
Only the boys have secrets of their own and they’ll do anything to keep her safe from the knowledge of the mysterious Academy they’ve sworn allegiance to. Bit by bit, Sang discovers her friends are far from what she’d expected. Will her loyalty change when she’s forced to remain in the dark, or will she accept that she’s traded one house of secrets for another?
Meet Kota, Victor, Silas, Nathan, Gabriel, Luke and North in a story about differences and loyalty, truth and mystery, friendships and heart-throbbing intimacy.
The Academy, ever vigilant.

Message from Lauren:

Dear Readers:

I am thrilled to share some exciting news with you! Many of you have been patiently waiting for SWEET SINFUL NIGHTS, the story of Brent Nichols and the woman he loves. Many of you already know Brent since he’s the younger brother of Clay Nichols, from NIGHT AFTER NIGHT….The good news is this-SWEET SINFUL NIGHTS is Book One in a new erotic romance series, Sinful Nights, written in the high-heat, high-stakes, high-glamour style of the Seductive Nights series that readers know and love, but heading in a new direction with a new family that’s full of drama, checkered pasts and dangerous life-and-death secrets.

SWEET SINFUL NIGHTS kicks off this new series with a fiery, passionate, and suspenseful story of two lovers reuniting after ten years. Each book in this series follow a new couple and will be set against the backdrop of sin, money, sex, greed, passion and love in the city of Las Vegas. Brent’s love interest is Shannon Paige, and she has three brothers. Yep, you guessed it – each of her brothers will be getting a book!
