Abruption
Sweet sweet sweeeeeeetness and it had me right form the get-go! I sampled it, and this was one sample, that as soon as it was done, I went in and one-clicked it right into my iPad. LOVED it! :D

And I should have known, since a few of you commented and let us know how into this recent release y’all were.

Michelle:  I can’t rave enough about how incredibly DIFFERENT this story is. There’s nothing to compare it to so it is a perfect “what to read after.” I saw you post about it, but if you haven’t read it and you’re looking for an emotional journey that feels so real and imperfect that you forget that they’re actually imaginary characters, or a book with twists and turns that make you question your own intelligence for not seeing things coming, or if you want to laugh out loud because you feel like you slipped into your own family reunion (as an outsider peeking in at the lunacy), and you want to fall in love with the most adorable kids ever, then you have to read this story! Can you tell that I’m having a book hangover?! Sigh. I’m jealous of everyone who gets to read it for the first time going in blind.

Jillian: oh oh oh Abruption!! Beautiful 5+star read! Loved it all! amazing single father and a heroine that was one of the strongest women I’ve ever read, kids were adorable and a twist I wasn’t expecting! Definitely go for this one, couldn’t put it down, read it in one sitting! …such a unique and awesome cover..book just as awesome!

Cheryl: The h is a feisty nurse-and it involves a special needs child- both of which I can relate to I liked it. Wasn’t crazy angst and you were told the secret for one of the main characters early on and the other one I figured out before it was revealed. Then there was another “twist” that you can kinda see coming. I also liked it because the MC were a nurse and doctor and being a nurse I appreciated the medical “talk.” Started reading the authors, yes it’s 2 authors previous books to bide my time until the BR of The Score. The first book in a 2 book series, even though I *think* each book is about 2 different main characters and their stories, but their stories are interrelated. (if that makes sense). Also, book 1 has the H from Abruption prior to what happened in that book. Also set in the medical environment. :D …Enjoyed the medical aspect.

Robin: Stayed up all night reading Abruption. That cover sucked me in (maybe because it’s freaking everywhere right now) and it did not disappoint. Finally, my book slump is over! On to the next …

I was intrigued and I was happy considering so many here loved the first two books in this series, and yet, we could read THIS one as a standalone. I was SO in!

It had everything I love, but especially the smooth-flowing story, that ramped up, and up and up until BAM <— eek eek OMG NO!!!! No. Way!!!!

Yep!

The quintessential contemporary romance story that takes place in a hospital (at first) and has that amazing meet-cute (but in this case, total meet-bad, since he was such an ASS!!)! Plus, the adorable young children, and two incredible, responsible adults (he’s a surgeon and she’s a pediatric nurse), the family, and the drama… in this case, one sickly child with special needs, and the two main characters still struggling with their own personal tragedy. You get sass, you get the crush, you get the friendship, you get that close family-feel (and the hilarity that goes with that!! <— her VERY Italian family had me snorting!! lol ), you get steam, you get sweetness, you get drama, and you get angst!

So what’s it about?

Jules is a pediatric nurse at a hospital and is assigned to a 3 year old with cerebral palsy. He’s having bad fevers, and is in for testing… and it just so happens his father is a surgeon at that same hospital. Handsome, yes… but known for his no-nonsense and brooding demeanor, he doesn’t fail his reputation when he regards his son’s new nurse with disdain (she’s “new” there, and obviously inexperienced…). *eyeroll* What does he know anyway? confused The pompous jerk-face! LOL! And she lets him have it!

After a few more unpleasant and unforgettable run-ins (fun stuff!), she breaks through his mistrust and he looks at her in a new light, and asks her out. And that’s when the sweet fun begins.

…is there a minimum hour before you take off your slippers that I should know about?”

She moved so we were face-to-face, her eyes now honey caramel. Damn, she was beautiful. “They’re not slippers, they’re UGGs.”

Stubborn.

And definitely not most women.

Because they end up actually liking each other and having the longest first date in the world when his son gets sick once again, and they both jump into action. Their bond being forged, and her love of his children in full effect.

But both are harboring certain resentments

She may have looked and sounded like my wife, but I had no f**king clue who this woman had morphed into. That tension I was struggling to restrain threatened to burst. Forget barely recognizing, I was a stranger to myself right now.

and pain from their past,

Loss was never a get out of jail free card, but I understood how it had the power to make you forget the rules of the game every now and again. Grief could be all-consuming, and some days just waking up was your only play.

…occasionally letting their concerns get the best of them and interfering with their potential future together.

And then… there’s that other thing. The twist. *oomph* I love when I read… all clueless-like, and get that shock! Makes for an extra reveal that we didn’t see coming, along with the ones we already knew were gonna hurt us badly.

“The three of you are all twisted up and entwined, there is no way to untie you. You’re keeping the pieces of my heart all together.”

WOW. WOWOWOWOWOWOWWWWW!!!!

Some perfect parts, for sure.

And while for me, it wasn’t unputdownable, it was 100% enjoyable, through and through. Very consistent in it’s delivery, and I certainly enjoyed that surprise twist. *gasp* I didn’t see it coming until it became obvious… I was too busy thinking… *other* things.

Now… maybe I should jump into #1 and #2? ;)  ➜ Beautifully Awake Series Reading Order

4 stars!

So many of us get a real kick out of the dynamic and “social study” of a sheltered character (one that lives differently from the “social norms” due to strict upbringing, religious beliefs, and/or abusive situations) that is thrust into the “real” world. They find themselves reevaluating everything they thought was true. New lessons to be learned as their fears, and their beliefs are tested, and that can make for an exciting, and/or emotionally heart rending journey for both that character and the reader!

I LOVE exploring stories like this, becoming the characters, seeing the world through her “new” eyes as she remembers and relates it to everything she lived previous… and maybe even wants to go back to. And I especially love it when romance is involved. A “real-world” hero (most often a bad-ass or even a bad guy!! Eeeeep! :D ) and his innocent heroine… the growth between both these characters can be so fulfilling!

And I’ve been recently asked to make us a list! I have a few in mind already, but I know plenty of my fellow readers had some recommendations too!

Candice asks:

“…I read Resisting Her by Kendall Ryan and I got kinda hooked on that dynamic you know innocent heroine reluctant hero could you recommend some books for me please. Thank you very much.”

Maryse: I love this genre!! I already have a few on my list (example: Sheltered by Charlotte Stein) so I’ll start one, but I’m also curious for the ones my fellow readers have loved…

Look what we’ve come up with!

P.S. This is a work in progress, and I will continue to add to this list as we find ‘em. :D (suggest your favorites in the comments)

Sheltered by Charlotte Stein <— RAISED BY A DOMINEERING ABUSIVE FATHER & SHE SPIES ON THE “BAD BOY” OVER THE FENCE… they secretly become friends, but the fear I feel WITH her each time they sneak to talk to each other (and the intensity of the steam between the two is OUT OF THIS WORLD). This is one of my favorite books ever! And Diane agrees! “I thought Sheltered was sooo good” (my review)

Resisting Her by Kendall Ryan <— SHE’S BEEN RAISED IN A CULT AND AN FBI AGENT RAIDS it and has to take her in!! “… At nineteen, she’s too old for foster care and too damaged to live on her own. With nowhere else to go, and against his better judgment Cole takes her in…“ Candice’s recommendation!

Hades Hangmen Series by Tillie Cole <— RAISED IN A CULT Alessia says: “Heroine is raised in a cult. Start with It Ain’t Me, Babe (Hades Hangmen Book 1)” and Lauren agrees: “…all 3 books have heroine’s who escaped from a cult.” and Katherine says: “Loved all 3 books.” (my review)

Wanderlust: A Dark Romance Novel by Skye Warren <— RAISED BY A STRICT AGORAPHOBIC MOTHER and Gabby says: “It’s a bit of dark read.” and Antonella agrees: “One that always sticks out for me was Wanderlust by Skye Warren. I read it a while ago now but I still remember it being dark/taboo and wanting them to get together even though it was so wrong.” YES!!!! Actually it’s VERY dark, because while she’s INCREDIBLY sheltered, he’s a VERY bad guy and kidnaps her. It’s intense, scary, and emotional. I absolutely loved it because it’s pretty much a psych-thriller but with a love story… (my review)

The Compound Series by Melissa Brown <— POLYGAMIST CULT and Julie suggests this one! Here’s book #1: Wife Number Seven (The Compound Series Book 1) and Christie says: “Omg so much yasssssss” and Rachel enjoyed it, too! “I liked Wife Number Seven. It was a really interesting look into that kind of lifestyle.

Hard Rock Remix (The Lonely Kings, #2) by Ava Lore <— POLYGAMIST CULT Pamela suggests this one!! “Ava Lore has a series about a rock band “the Lonely Kings” and the 2nd book has a heroine who escapes a polygamist cult compound.” and Katrin agrees! “Thought of the exact same book! :D

Uncommon Passion by Anne Calhoun <— LEAVES A CULT and Pamela also recommends this one! “Oh and there’s “Uncommon Passion” by Anne Calhoun where the heroine has left a super religious cult and buys the hero at a bachelor auction.” and Diane agrees! “Anne Calhoun is hit or miss for me but I loved Uncommon Passion…”

Becoming Calder and Finding Eden by Mia Sheridan <— RELIGIOUS GROUP THAT LIVE IN A TOWN THAT SHUNS SOCIETY & TECHNOLOGY and Kristal recommends these! And Joanna agrees: “Yes yes yes love these book so much.” and so does Rebecca: “This is my recommendation too!” Michelle, too! “Soooooo goooood!!!”

Beaten (Broken Book 1) by Rebekah Rue <— STRICT UPBRINGING and Nancy loved this one! “Beaten by Rebekah Rue starts out with the girl being so overly protected by her ex-military father and mother that she just wants them to disapear, and of course, be careful what you wish for…”

Last Hit (A Hitman Novel Book 1) by Jessica Clare & Jen Frederick <—SHE WAS HOME SCHOOLED & FARM-RAISED Niki suggests this one and Lori agrees! “I just finished Last Hit and loved it! Can’t wait for Daniel’s story next year.”

Twisted Perfection: A Rosemary Beach Novel (The Rosemary Beach Series Book 5) by Abbi Glines <— SHELTERED UPBRINGING Niki also suggests this one! Jaime loved it! “I just finished Twisted Perfection and I”m so in love! This is what i love about books. I get to fall in love over and over again. Woods is right up there with my all time favourites. Like others have said, the cliffhanger is not so shocking that i would tell people to wait to read this book. He is just way to hot and sexy to wait!” and so did Teresa: “OMG – I just finished Twisted Perfection! It was, well…..perfect. How many times this week am I going to fall in love? Woods…..sigh”

Blind Attraction (Reckless Beat Book 1) by Eden Summers <— STRICT & SHELTERED UPBRINGING and Kathy found us this one!

Pretty Little Things by Teresa Mummert <— DARK & DISTURBING UPBRINGING and Debra suggests it!

Sins of Sevin by Penelope Ward <— STRICT RELIGIOUS FAMILY and Faye recommends this one! “Sins of Sevin by Penelope Ward! The heroine wasn’t in a cult, but she was still sheltered by a very religious and traditional family.” and Ela says: “I just finished Sins of Sevin and really loved it. I was having doubts at one point and have an issue with one aspect of the book more towards the end but overall highly recommend it!

PLAUSIBILITY by Jettie Woodruff <— TABOO RAISED IN A LIFE OF CRIME BUT EXTREMELY SHELTERED BY BROTHER & FATHER <— Niki suggests this one, too! Laura really loves this one! “It’s really good and in true jettie crazy style kind of taboo as her books normally are! …u will love plausibility …great story!!” and Jackie says: “*** taboo*** couldn’t help but to read in 1 sitting”

Lead Me From Solitude by Lainy Bradshaw <— SHELTERED & ENSLAVED MALE BY HIS PARENTS! Nancy found us this one! “Lead Me From Solitude by Lainy Bradshaw is the same concept, but with the young man Jacob being kept by his over zealous father as a virtual slave, and when his parents are killed in an accident, the policewoman comes to the house and saves him.”

Arrows of the Queen (Heralds of Valdemar Book 1) by Mercedes Lackey <— STRICT RELIGIOUS COMMUNITY and Donna suggests this one! “(Note – book blurb describes Talia as a runaway, but she actually wasn’t, as it was Rolan who ‘ran away’ with her – she was living in a religious, strict, sheltered community near the border).”

The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie Oakes <— RAISED IN A CULT AND FINALLY FREE-ish;)  Amy suggests this one (which is likely her next read) saying: “I have one sitting on my iPad that I’m hoping to get to soon, The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie Oakes. That blurb, GAH! I have a feeling that is going to be one effed-up read.”

MORE PLEASE!! :D This is so much fun. I’ll be picking and choosing many times, from this list.

SATURDAY BREAKING NEWS UPDATE!!! KATHRYN PEREZ FANS LOOOOOOOK!!!!! So many of you guys cried like crazy over “Therapy” and look what just went LIVE!!!!

➜ THERAPY Ever After by Kathryn Perez!!

➜ And speaking of intense, beautifully written, emotional books, I 4.5 starred this FANTASTIC book, and it’s super-bargain priced right now!!! In the Stillness by Andrea Randall (my review)

Oh!! Look what’s live (and a few more… a smaller list today, but everything on it looks DARN good), and of course, the reader recommendations appear to be top-notch! Scroll down for our book-find goodies!

In fact… HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK ALERT! Okay my BIGGEST recommendation of the day is going to be Me Before You: A Novel by Jojo Moyes. Yes… I know many of you know how HARD I recommend this book (my review), but now since the movie trailer has come out, this book has jumped right back up the charts (it’s #5 right now in ALL of Kindle books), so I’m realizing many fellow readers are just now jumping in. OMG you guys are in for EVERYTHING. One of the BEST BOOKS EVER!

Maryse: OH. EM. GEEEEEE!!!! I will be there with bells on!!!  :D  Wow it’s something when a trailer can make you cry… That Me Before You trailer made me cry. I MEAN CRY. Big sloppy tears falling on my feet! (I was sitting cross-legged)…

Amy: Well, now I’m crying and screwing up my freshly applied makeup. That’s what I get for watching the trailer right before I need to leave. Dammit. Gah, that book was SO beautiful!!!!

Cheryl: Ugh, crying just watching it;… I’m glad I watched it after I had my picture taken for my passport renewal. Would hate that pic to follow me for ten years!!

Grey: Am I the only one on the planet that hasn’t read Me Before You? …if I’m strong… maybe, I’ll read Me Before You. But I’m not sure me… or my tear ducts, or my Kleenex (read wine budget) can take it…

DG: *raising hand* Grey – I haven’t read it either….might need to read the blurb again….

Jean: … I still haven’t gotten up the guts to read the book! I definitely need to read it before the movie is released! Now, I have to avoid the trailer because I really have no idea what it’s about, but I know it hurts!

Maryse: Read the book first, Grey. The trailer will be SO MUCH MORE meaningful to you. PLEASE. READ. THE. BOOK. NOW. :D *someone hand Grey Manny again…;)

Amy: Me Before You is NOT one of those that will have you crying from beginning to end. It’s beautiful with great dry humor and cringe-worthy moments (I love Louisa *snort*) and it’s touching and OMG soooooo worth any tears there might be. And after you have read it *then* go and watch the trailer. …I just watched the MBY trailer. Again. And cried. Again. READ IT LADIES!!! *sneaks off to watch trailer again*

Danielle: Omg it had me tearing up

Jennifer: *wipes tears. Watches again. And again*

Jeannie: Finally a movie I can’t wait to see! I think the movie is going to make me cry more than the book did.

Gabby: I just bawled my eyes out

Leeann: Ok, I thought I was the only one who cried while watching this. Glad you guys are all with me! Can’t wait to see it.

Dawnee: Yep. Made me cry…

Emma: Whaaa.. bawling like a baby. Can’t wait!

Judie: The trailer is killing me – I can’t imagine what the movie will do……oh man!!

Cindy: I didn’t think I would but I totally did – cried! Love this story and can’t wait for the movie!

It is a rock star romance but has a very different feel from other rock star books I have read.  There is a lot of emotional layering and a very slow build in the relationship, but that build is riddled with great banter, steamy moments ,angst (but not so over the top that you find yourself rolling your eyes), and a genuine friendship.  The author’s character development is superb and her writing is beautiful and relatable.  I really enjoyed the story from start to finish…looking forward to the sequel, Down to My Soul, which I believe is due out next month!  Happy reading!”

Theresa: “Ladies I just finished Fighting Solitude by Aly Martinez…put it at the top of your TBR lists…it was AMAZING!!! 5 star read for me! …From the very beginning it had me hooked.  I have absolutely loved this entire series and I think each book progressively got better and better….this book had me laughing out loud and feeling so deeply for both Quarry and Liv!  Absolutely beautiful ending to this series…put it to the top of your TBR!  Thank you Aly Martinez for sharing the Page brothers with us all!” and Jean agrees! “I finished Fighting Solitude last night and loved it!

And I have another reader question!! Samantha only remembers the blurb, but wants to read this one, so maybe someone here knows?

Samantha asks:

“I need your help! I’m looking for a book only have blurb,

what I can remember, girl from USA travels to Ireland, don’t know why, gets picked up at airport by guy, but she refuses his help and gets her own transport when she gets to where she’s staying she can’t believe he’s already there, thinks he’s a racing car driver, she’s bold and brassy?

Can anyone help me please?”

:D !!!

Rebecca says: “ I think this is a Tessa Bailey- Unfixable…the novella about Willa…”

Happy Reader Question Thursday! I have a few already in the queue!!! Maybe you guys can help me with this one? So far we have quite a few guesses from our Facebook crew (each one, a different book!! :D ), but no confirmation yet. Anyone else wanna venture a guess?

“Maryse, a few years ago I read, what I believed to be the first novel in a series, about a young girl in the US and her friendship with a guy (I think was British but not a definite).

She was younger than him but they were friends and he was in a band that was beginning to become popular.

The book ended with I think them declaring their love BUT he had to leave to go on tour. Help?

I can’t remember the name and this could have been as far back as 2011/12.

If you, or one of your fantastic followers had any idea I would really appreciate it. Cheers Sarah”

Cézanne: This sounds so familiar.

Nancy: You got a few details mixed up, but it is Thoughtless.

Rita: The Mighty Storm (The Storm series Book 1)

Robyn: I think I got it….The Access Series by Alice Severin!

Clare: Is it K L Shandwick Everything Trilogy?

Kim: This sounds like Carla Krae’s My Once and Future Love series. It came out in 2012 under a different name. The girl loves in US and grew up with British boy but he moved back to England. He was in a band when she went to visit him. The friendship evolves over the series.

The blurb for book #1 intrigued me big time, and it looks like some of our fellow readers jumped in (cliffhanger be damned!) and are LOVING this series!

Marina: I picked up End of Day on a whim yesterday and am so hooked. Holy WOW, the emotions. It is PHENOMENAL and feels so different. It has absolutely every feeling, slow build, craziness, sassy, gritty, dark…… I was feeling in a book slump and now plan to read everything by Jewel E. Ann.

Shirley: Im reading End Of Day right now and am at 50%. Jewel E Ann is my new favorite author so I tried and tried holding off starting this series till all 3 were released but so many great reviews and recommendations I couldn’t hold off any longer! I LOVE it- I cant put this book down! I knew I would, all of her books are awesome! I love her writing and the main characters-I fall in love with them all. I would like to meet her, I bet she is a hoot! …Also, the 3rd book of Jewel E Ann’s Jack and Jill series-Dawn of Forever releases Feb. 18. Highly recommend all these!!!

Lise: I’m reading END OF DAY by Jewel E. Ann. So good, so far!

Niki: At 56% of End of Day by Jewel E. Ann.. it is so good guys!!! It is mysterious cuz you are wondering what is going on, funny, and a little bit dark!!! So good!!! I’ll let you know if it’s a cliffhanger when I’m done :)

Linda: really want to read End of Day by Jewel E Ann but understand huge ch? This author has become automatic go to for me like KA but want full series. Ugh trying to be patient!!!

Marina: I just want to note… End of Day and Middle of Night are absolute 2015 Must Reads. I don’t want to build it up too much, but they are really original. They ebb and flow, one moment I can walk away and the next, totally unputdownable. Emotions all across the board. In the middle of Middle of Knight and this morning I was crying laughing so hard. And then again while just talking to my mom remembering?

Jenn: Have any of you read end of day and middle of knight??? OMG amazing!! Could not put it down

About book #1:

Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust; in the sure and certain hope of the Resurrection to eternal life.

Four caskets. Two bodies.

Jessica and Jude Day witness their funeral and that of their parents a few yards away from mourning family and friends. Stripped of the only life they’ve ever known, the Days say goodbye to San Francisco forever.

Six months later, two thirty-year-old misfits with elite self-defense skills and penchants for alcohol, sex, and trouble arrive like an earthquake to Peaceful Woods, a retirement community in Omaha, Nebraska, that thrives on rules and gossip. Welcome home, Jackson and Jillian Knight.

Jackson celebrates his new beginning by embracing his job and wiping his cavalier past clean with a temporary oath of celibacy. But Jillian’s past is branded into her soul—the deaths, the insanity, Dr. Luke Jones, and the need to make her lovers bleed. Her chance for redemption comes in the form of a next door neighbor, one Senior Master Sergeant Monaghan. He’s sexy, dangerously alluring, and riddled with emotional issues from years of service. He’s also … So. Damn. Grumpy.

Their mission is simple: Let go, start over, don’t kill anyone, and pray that nobody wakes the dead.

Another exciting release day is upon us! And while I’m “taste-testing” a few reads right now so I can devour one after my great start to a reading year, there are a few here that are calling my name…

Like: He Will Be My Ruin by K.A. Tucker (I already love this author’s twisty-story telling, but this one is a psych-thriller that has me so intrigued! Her best friend kills herself, and she finds out there was a certain secret man in her life…), Every Ugly Word (Amy, my angst-loving book twin is freaking out over this one, and while it’s not a new release, I wanna read it NOW!!), Midnight Revenge (First, it’s Elle Kennedy so YES PLEASE!! And 2nd… he’s a mercenary that has two people to protect, one being his pregnant one-night stand… Tee hee!!!) and Blind Reality (I can’t help but love the sound of an “arranged marriage” between strangers and the intricacy of such a relationship, but that this one is for a reality show… and better yet, one of ‘em is a famous actor? FUN FUN FUN!!!) :D !!!!

But those aren’t the only standouts for me, and I made sure to highlight a bunch below to help you pick and choose. We have a historical fantasy M/M enemies to lovers trilogy conclusion that was HIGHLY anticipated (Kings Rising) and an MMA Fighter (Fighting Solitude) from popular Aly Martinez (I love her!) and a new one from Nicole Williams (The Fable of Us bad boy and rich girl love story) and the latest “Christina Lauren” comedy-steam fest” (Wicked Sexy Liar) and one were she ends up stuck in a cabin with the one that broke her heart once upon a time (Ember’s Fire)…. Oh!! And a just released prisoner looking to get back together with his preacher’s daughter ex girlfriend (Against the Wall), and of course the HIGHLY ANTICIPATED latest J.D. Robb book (Brotherhood in Death). Yep. This could be a VERY fulfilling reading week. :D

Which to chooooooose…. which…. to….. chooooooose?

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

P.P.S. Don’t have a Kindle? No problem! Amazon offers various free Kindle apps and a free Kindle Cloud reader for any and ALL of us to use.

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. Low by Mary Elizabeth <— STILL SUPER-BARGAIN PRICED (one extra day?) & I LOVED IT ALERT!!! I went crazy for this one over the weekend, and now you can too! Here’s my Book Review. :D
  2. The Farm by by Amy Cross <— HORROR ALERT! Amy found us this one, and I TOTALLY one-clicked it! “OH! Maryse, still looking for something scary? Take a peek at The Farm by Amy Cross…it’s .99 for the next few days and the blurb gave me the chills. Seriously, look! *points to arm* I’ve got goosebumps!!”
  3. Drowning Instinct (Fiction – Young Adult) by Ilsa J. Bick <— TEACHER STUDENT THRILLER ALERT! This one has come back into rotation ’cause it’s just awesome and thrilling and now a few in our crew are reading it. Amy and I loved it like crazy way back when. ;) Amy: “Drowning Instinct…holy moly, I am so not kidding when I say that it is different from all of the other teacher-student books. I started it at one point and then stopped (I was probably in a mood), but when Maryse reviewed it I had to go back and BAM! It kicked my mind’s a$$. And my heart’s a$$. And my a$$. In other words, it was perfect. :D
  4. All That Glitters Duet: Diamonds & Gold by K.A. Linde <— GOLD-DIGGER ALERT! Tessa highly recommends this brand new bargain priced two-book bundle (’cause #3 is coming out soon!) She says: “Read All That Glitters Set people. It’s just good.”
  5. Every Ugly Word by Aimee L. Salter <— UBER-ANGST ALERT! Amy is losing her mind over this one!! And I LOVE when that happens. She says: “EUW is so freaking…scratch that, F&$#ING intense with what she is dealing with that the whole 17-year-old thing doesn’t even matter. I’m a basket case right now, and you KNOW how much it takes for a book to do that to me. But I’m loving it!!” and she also tells us: “It has me feeling all kinds of intense feels, much like Therapy did. She has an “older self” that she sees in the mirror who tries to guide her without telling her exactly what will happen (and her older self appears to be quite a mess), and it has before and after alternating segments…before, when she was bullied mercilessly and her best/only friend (who she secretly loves) refuses to see the extent of it because he is friends with them, and then after, where something horrible has happened. Let me tell you, I need those “after” segments to break up the anxiety-inducing “before” segments…
  6. Blank Slate by Tiffany Snow <— Theresa found out this one is bargain priced right now! “In the snow-covered switchbacks of the Colorado mountains in a worsening snowstorm, a car crash robs Clarissa of her memory and lands her as Erik’s prisoner…”
  7. Wife Number Seven (The Compound Series Book 1) by Melissa Brown <— Nancy found us this one that is super-bargain priced! “WIFE NUMBER SEVEN by Melissa Brown is now on sale…” Oh and I love this kind of story!! There’s SO much more to her… “so much more than the oppressive wedding band that adorns my finger–the same band that each of my sister wives wear. So much more. To protest would be sinful. I must keep sweet, that is my duty.
  8. Dry: A Memoir by Augusten Burroughs <— SUPER-SALE on this one today! I flipped over this author years ago with his other book “Running with Scissors: A Memoir” (<–it’s the one I walked through all of Busch Gardens with, reading and not actually seeing the theme park. LOL!!!) Nobody could have tons me away, so I am intrigued with this one!!
  9. Ryker: A Cold Fury Hockey Novel (Carolina Cold Fury Hockey) by Saywer Bennett <— HOCKEY PLAYER ALERT and it’s super-bargain priced! “…since his wife left him, Ryker has been balancing life as a pro-hockey star and a single parent to two daughters. Management is waiting for him to screw up. The fans are ready to pounce. Everybody’s taking dirty shots—except for the fiery redhead whose faith in Ryker gives him a fresh start…
