HAPPY NEW RELEASE DAY EVERYONE! It’s a BIG LIST TODAY (80+), and by the look of the awesome pre-order highlights for next week, probably an even bigger list then. But I’ve got a bunch from this list with blurbs that have titillated me. :D

In fact, here’s my mini blurb jolt listFive (J.A. Huss’s latest and it sounds like a sweet and intense second chance romance book, and so many of my friends were highly anticipating this one!), Lucas (*ahem* Hockey star he leaves a little surprise after a one night stand. ;) I can only imagine… tee hee!!) Ties That Bind (Her ex and their sex tape went public, and ruined her famous image… and now he needs her help. This one sounds SO good, but it seems like a shorter book. How can she pack so much story into something in the hundred-and-something page range? I dunno, but it can be done. I’ve read awesome short ones before), White Bodies (Psych-thriller, and while they look like the perfect couple, her sister notices she seems abused… and she joins an online support group), Wicked Dirty (J. Kenner’s latest, and he’s a Hollywood heartthrob bad boy, caught by the paparazzi with a one night stand, so he tells them she’s his fiance. Oops!), Born, Darkly (Dark read? Or psych-thriller? Either way it sounds awesome. She’s a criminal psychologist and she’s falling for her serial killer patient. YIKES!!!!!! How in the heck is THAT going to play out. Oh I wanna know!!), and the one blurb that REALLY got me so hard in the feels… One More Thing. OMG that one sounds like it’s going to be emotionally heartrending and exquisite (she’s grieving her husband, and years later meets someone knew… in almost the same way she met her husband. “…that stick of gum was the catalyst of a series of events where our paths would continue to cross. There would be a broken nose, a fractured hand, a cat on a lead and a crashed corporate Christmas party that would align our hearts and make me realise that I wanted to be happy again.  But there would be tears. Many, many tears. Because falling in love isn’t easy, especially when you’re still in love with another man.”) <— eek Tell me that doesn’t sound awesome??!!

And! Don’t forget to check out yesterday’s earlybirds ➔ 19 Monday Earlybird Book Releases (some heavy-hitters on that one!!) PLUS, in case you missed it, my latest book review is up and this book was 5-STAR PLUS AWESOME!!! ➔ Book Review – Until It Fades by K.A. Tucker

<— EEEEEP!!! IT’S TIME!! It’s time for The Brother cover reveal and blurb reveal. It’s is going live on October 2nd (but it’s book #2, and I highly recommend book #1, first). 

Book #1 “The Tutor” my review

P.S. Psych-thriller, dark kidnap book alert!!! Well, at least book #1 (The Tutor) was, and I was into it!! In fact, here’s my review (*ahem* It’s labelled as a pre-review but it’s plenty loaded in my excitement for it so… it sort of ended up being a real review). ➔➔➔➔

And you know what? It’s the ending that had me even more excited. In fact, this was my reaction:

“…then… the author told me a secret. OMG. I can’t tell you the secret but you WILL find out, and that very secret bumped up my enthusiasm and excitement over it, up to 4.5 stars.

You’ll see why. One day. ;)

And that day is now. The secret is out. I can’t help but wonder if THIS book will be even better. I don’t want to say too much, if you haven’t read book #1 yet. It’s complete… with a mild cliffhanger that forged itself into a very interesting twisty ending. Or should I say… beginning? GAH!!! I can’t say! MY LIPS ARE SEALED!! But read #1, and then definitely read THIS one!

Here’s the blurb for The Brother (but DON’T READ the blurb if you haven’t read book #1 yet. Okay? Promise??)

Nora Robertson is struggling to find her place in society after being held captive for half a year. Her sense of normal is skewed at best, in love and life but, she is trying to recover with the help of her support system. She pines for a home and a love she can no longer have. A love she knows was wrong but still clings to and desires secretly.

Liam Lockwood stumbled across a photo in a magazine of his long forgotten brother causing buried secrets, heartache and obsession to bubble to the surface. When Liam sees something he wants, he takes it. He always has and this time will be no different despite his father’s warning. Payback for a dark and broken childhood now has a name, Nora Robertson.

When Liam and Nora’s paths collide everyone in their wake will be left stumbling when the truth reveals itself.

Attraction is not random.

MINE!!!! Oh you know I’ll be reading this. She’s one of my favorite authors, and her twisty, dark stories are always so nerve-wracking. AND I LOVE THAT! :D

Good morning and Happy Early Bird Monday my friends! A whole new week is ahead of us, and it’s starting off with a bang! Two that I have been excited about are live today (King of Code - that one to the left, and Exes with Benefits by Nicole Williams) but then, Penelope Ward and VI Keeland surprised us yesterday with Dear Bridget, I Want You, too!

But those aren’t the only ones that look good. I highlighted a bunch below. ;)

EARLY BIRDS THAT JUST WENT LIVE!!

  • King of Code by C.D. Reiss <— C.D. REISS ALERT!!! SHE HACKED HIS UN-HACKABLE SYSTEM... “Taylor Harden is a man on the edge. The edge of fame. The edge of untold wealth. The edge of utter humiliation. He built an unhackable system, and in front of everyone, it’s hacked. His reputation goes from king to goat in a split second. Boom. Like that. Some dude in Barrington, USA (AKA Nowhere) has locked down Taylor’s code, and if he doesn’t get it back, he’s going to be wearing a monkey suit for the rest of his life. Except, this guy? This hacker from Nowhere? He’s not a guy. Harper Watson’s all woman.”
  • Exes with Benefits by Nicole Williams <— NICOLE WILLIAMS ALERT!!! HE WON’T SIGN THE DIVORCE PAPERS UNLESS……We got married for all the wrong reasons. The one thing we got right was our separation. I should have known better than to think I could bet on forever with a guy like Canaan Ford. Everything about him screamed impermanent, from his wild eyes to his restless soul. When I left him and the small town I’d spent my whole life in, I swore I’d never go back. Never only turned out to be five years. Canaan claims he’s changed, but he hasn’t…
  • Royal Attraction by Tiffany Truitt <— SHE GREW UP IN THE PALACE WITH THREE YOUNG PRINCES ALERT!!…As the daughter of the former U.S. ambassador to England, she grew up within the palace walls, best friends with the three young princes. Adored by the press and the British people. What more could a girl want? If only the press knew the real story behind her relationships with the Dudley boys. Then, they’d really sell some papers...”
  • Dear Bridget, I Want You by Penelope Ward and VI Keeland <— PENELOPE WARD & VI KEELAND’S LATEST IS LIVE!!! HE’S A BRITISH DOCTOR AND THEY’RE SO WRONG FOR EACH OTHER… Dear Bridget, I’m writing this letter because it’s highly doubtful I’ll ever garner the courage to say this to your face. So, here goes. We’re totally wrong for each other. You’re the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I’m just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England. But here’s the thing… for some bloody reason, I can’t stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways. I want you…
  • Rebel Song: (Rebel Series Book 3) ((Rebel Series)) by J.C. Hannigan <— SINGLE MOM & HER BROTHER’S BEST FRIEND (A FAMOUS COUNTRY SINGER ALERT!!)…Travis Channing isn’t just her brother’s best friend; he’s a known womanizer—not to mention a chart-topping country singer. But Becky hopes one pleasure-filled night with Travis might temporarily numb the pain she’s experiencing…
  • The Girl Who Dared to Think 2: The Girl Who Dared to Stand by Bella Forrest <— BELLA FORREST ALERT!!

 <— WELL HERE’S SOME BIG NEWS RIGHT OFF THE BAT!! PENELOPE WARD & VI KEELAND’S LATEST IS LIVE!!! Dear Bridget, I Want You and hear’s a tidbit from the blurb…

“Dear Bridget,

I’m writing this letter because it’s highly doubtful I’ll ever garner the courage to say this to your face. So, here goes.

We’re totally wrong for each other. You’re the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I’m just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England.

But here’s the thing… for some bloody reason, I can’t stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways.

I want you…”

Jessica Sorensen just posted the cover for her upcoming release in the Callie & Kayden series called “The Everemore of Callie & Kayden”. No preorder yet, but it’s pretty gorgeous, and I remember this series from our early indie days!! It’s like a blast from the past!

Kate Stewart is releasing a book in October called “Drive” and I can’t make heads or tails of this blurb, but you know it’s gonna be good! I’d say a love triangle, but I can’t be sure. “...At the height of my career, I had the life I wanted, the life I’d always envisioned. I’d found my tempo, my rhythm. Then I received a phone call that left me off key. You see, my favorite songs had a way of playing simultaneously. I was in love with one man’s beats and another’s lyrics…“ She posted the cover and blurb here (and is having a giveaway)!

J.R. Ward and 1,001 Dark Nights presents “Readers on the River” (a signing in Louisville Kentucky with a bunch of our favorite authors) and the tickets are on sale now!

S.L. Jennings is releasing “Wicked Ruins” (book #3 in her Se7en Sinners series) and is revealing the cover, release date and blurb tomorrow!

Casey Peeler just released her latest book Everett (Drake Brothers Series Book 1)! It’s a super-short story but the short-and-sweet blurb had my attention. “Everett Drake left the small town life and his three brothers behind the day he was old enough to enlist. However, he returned sooner than he had planned with a chip on his shoulder. Taking a job with the local beer distributor, he makes a living, but when a new bar owner arrives in town, he knows exactly what he wants—Stella.”

Katie Ashley has a new book coming out called “Jacob’s Ladder – Gabe” (ROCK STAR ALERT!!) and has revealed a GORGEOUS book cover (and blurb!!) for us to feast our eyes upon! A little tidbit from the blurb: “…As a single mother taking care of her family’s collision business, Rae doesn’t have time for hook ups, much less a relationship. And if she did make time, a musician would be last on her list, even one as good-looking as Gabe Renard…” <— OH YES!!!! He needs her help and she’s NOT impressed. Or is she? ;) P.S. And I love the little tidbit the author gives us about the cover models, saying:

“Huge thanks to Lauren Watson Perry of Perrywinkle Photography for not only doing the photography, but for finding real twins to be Gabe and Eli. Not to mention my Rae and Emerson are also the real wives of the twins!! Thanks Cara Marie Chatwin and Derik Chatwin for being my Gabe and Raegan!”

Staci Hart reveals the cover of her upcoming release “From Darkness” (third book in her “Hearts & Arrows” series). No preorder yet, but it’s going live September 28th and you can catch up on book #1 & 2 here.

“Bestselling author Staci Hart brings you the third installment of an addictive romantic mythology series where love is the ultimate game, and Aphrodite always wins.”

Some of our crew prefer the lower angst romance books (and are not necessarily rip-your-heart-out/who-knows-how-it-will-end book-adrenaline junkies like a few of us are. lol Ahem. *blink blink*)

So for those that need a little break from stress, maybe this list will do it for ya! Melinda was inspire by Fabi’s “favorites” list, and so she submitted hers, too. She even once told us: “I don’t like sad books that feel like your stomach is in knots.

Melinda: Maryse, this right down my alley. As well as the rest. Haha Here’s my very quick list:

There’s a few a found quickly. Love these lists.

Until It Fades: A Novel
Oh my my my my myyyyyyyy!!!! This book was my absolute perfect read. FIVE STARS PLUS!!!

I mean, how can I possibly resist a story about a single mom that comes across an accident and literally saves a man? That sounds awesome in itself, but what about this kicker? She finds out that he’s a hugely famous hockey star (and also the son of an Oscar winning legend of an actress), and now everyone wants to know about her. Especially him. GAH!!!

The exciting story build up before “anything” happens was so addicting. I was hooked from the very first page, and that whole intro made me GASP!!!! And it wasn’t even the accident part, yet! This was one of those that I could not put down, and didn’t want to end.  The butterfly inducing reality that your famous- star crush might just be crushing back, but it’s SO much better than that.

Northernstar: Hello Maryse. I just finished “Until it Fades” by K.A. Tucker and i enjoyed it so much and it was such a great read! It had a little bit of everything I love in a story; a strong heroine, a sassy funny as hell kid, a sexy h, great supporting characters, ands the story (she saves his life and he’s famous). The story had me tearing up one minute and laughing the next. I would love to read more from this group of characters in the future. K.A. are you listening?

Leslie: I looooooved Until it Fades. I don’t usually like slow-burnish types, but this one was not at all boring or long winded…perfectly paced and fabulous and swoony.

Yep! I went old school and read a paperback during Hurricane Irma, and this one kept me so happy! Look at how many parts I “highlighted”!!! :D

Maryse: BOOK UPDATE!!! I’m reading “Until It Fades” by K.A. Tucker, and this book is AWESOME!!!!! Soooooooooo much more than the impression I got from the blurb (which was awesome in itself. Totally gave me a blurb jolt) and WOWOWOWOWOWOWOW!!!!! THIS… wow. It is deep, and intense, and has so much more than what you expect is going to happen. I’m in love with it. And now back to it. :)

Julie O: Maryse I read Until It Fades right after it came out and loved it too. Good idea for a story.

Celinka:  This was one of favorites this year, it’s sooo good!

Syd: I had some teenager’s from work at the library and this beauty was staring at me. My intial thought was how did I miss that one before now. I read it one sitting, literally couldn’t put it down.  it.

Angela: FYI I finished this one and it was AMAZING thank you so much for recommend it!!

Oh it was AMAZING, Angela. I totally get why this one was so loved by those that read it. As much as I already enjoy this particular trope (famous star/normal girl), this one goes above and beyond. There’s just SO much more to it, and every single bit of it, intoxicating.

From getting to know her in her own life (her own bracing backstory – wait until you read that!),

I force a smile and pull myself to my feet, trying in vain to ignore that voice in the back of my head, screaming at me.

Telling me how badly I’ve f**ked up my life.

to the whole accident scene,

A voice inside my head screams at me to run, to get back home safe and sound to Brenna. That I’ve done all that I can do and now it’s time to save myself.

I reach in to grasp the far side of his waist. “Wake up! I need you to wake up!” I cry, tugging on his massive body, earning his grunt but nothing more. I’m probably hurting him, I could be causing damage, but I don’t have a choice. It’s nothing compared to what the flames will do.

her best friends, her not-so-best-friends, her family dynamics, her sweet little daughter, the press, paparazzi, the interviews, her life changing significantly (in good ways and in bad),

“Exactly. He’s a pretty big deal to the media.” I feel his eyes flickering to me. “And you just saved his life. So we can withhold your name, but that mess back there? You’re not going to be able to avoid it forever. They’re vultures, and your fifteen minutes of fame are coming whether you like it or not.”

and of course, his world colliding with hers.

…Brett Madden is standing in the front door of my tiny ramshackle rental cottage, and I am in a pair of two-sizes-too-big gray track pants and a graphic cotton T-shirt with Grumpy Cat on the front, and my hair is pulled into a messy bun on top of my head, and I am going to kill Officer Keith Singer for surprising me like this.

All of that, plus… how they become friends (and maybe more ;) ). AND! There was an interesting little twist.

Oh my friends, there is SO much more to tell you, but I went in blind other than knowing she saved a famous hockey player and every step of the way was a delightful surprise to uncover. There’s no way I can put into words… just how much more amazing this book is than you even realize. It sounds so good, right? But it’s even better than that!

A heartwarming, heady, provocative read, brimming with butterflies-in-your-tummy feels.

5 STARS PLUS!!!!!!!! Absolutely exhilarating! One of my favorites of the year, and a definite forever favorite in my top favorites of all time!

P.S. Thank you so much to the publisher for sending me this review copy. I LOVED IT!!!!

<— BOOK BULLY ALERT!!! For those of you that love the alpha-jerks, I think this one’s for you (and quite a few of my books buds went crazy for it)!! :D And guess what? This “duet” series is NOW COMPLETE so no worries for that cliffhanger, ’cause you can just jump right into #2.

Grey:   I finished in the wee small hours. – “He won’t remember me,” I insisted. ~ Dirty Filthy Rich Boys by Laurelin Paige. I have to type up my review, but yes!!!! I really enjoyed it, other than than the cliffy that I should have expected, and that isn’t a deal breaker for me… I can throw myself over a cliff when I know the end is in sight, and she already has a release date for the next book posted, (it is just a duet). It was hella hot, had a jerkface bully, witty banter, in short…it checked a lot of my boxes! …really enjoyed them. A mean ol’ bully and dark (not quite black, but greyish) undertones … Certainly was creeping up on my book catnip!!

Tessa: BULLY JERK!  :D …Seriously, this twisted stuff is what I adore the most. Just pure twisted jerks. Dirty, Filthy, Rich Men did not disappoint. Anyone who loves the darker, bully type hero, READ THIS! Seriously, I can’t believe how much I loved it. Thank you Grey for recommending it! …Seriously, CATNIP!! This is not for everyone but I’m so glad Grey brought it to my attention. *huggles Grey* My bully buddy.  :D

Lauren: Tessa- would you recommend reading Dirty Flthy Rich Boys before starting DFRM? Or doesn’t it matter?

Tessa: DFRM has DFRB as a “part one”, so it doesn’t matter. It’s already there. It’s important to the story, but since it’s in the one, why get the other?

Grey: Tessa, You are so welcome! I had a feeling, you’d love it… us and our bad boy bullies! Lauren, I can answer this one! DFRM actually includes DFRB’s in the beginning of it. The novella DFRB is only 5-6 chapters long, so the author included it in the beginning of DFRM. So jump right in with DFRM, if that’s your thing :) Tessa and I both really liked it! Thanks again to Laurelin Paige for letting me review the ARC and spread the love!

Lauren: DFRB was free so just finished that not knowing it was included. I’m hooked…so off to purchase DFRM!!! Thanks ladies, got a feeling I’m going to like this one a lot.

Janet: I really recommend Laurelin Paige’s’ duet, Dirty Filthy Rich Men and Dirty Filthy Rich Love – the story of Donovan and Sabrina! A good roller coaster ride through hot obsession, with some angst, some heart wrench and a buffet of good characters to love and loathe. Can’t wait for the follow ups!

Tessa: I started Dirty, Filthy, Rich Love last night and I couldn’t stop! I’m almost done.  :) Yep, it’s that good.

About book #1:

When I met Donovan Kincaid, I knew he was rich. I didn’t know he was filthy. Truth be told, I was only trying to get his best friend to notice me.

I knew poor scholarship girls like me didn’t stand a chance against guys like Weston King and Donovan Kincaid, but I was in love with his world, their world, of parties and sex and power. I knew what I wanted—I knew who I wanted—until one night, their world tried to bite me back and Donovan saved me. He saved me, and then Weston finally noticed me, and I finally learned what it was to be in their world.

And then what it was like to lose it.

Ten years later, I’ve found my way back. Back to their world. Back to him.

This time, I’m ready. I’ve been down this road before, and I know all the dirty, filthy ways Donovan will try and wreck me.

But it’s hard to resist. Especially when I know how much I’ll like it.
