<— BREAKING NEWS UPDATE!!! :D :D IT IS FINALLY LIVE & THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE BOOKS EVER!!!!!!! 5 STARS PLUS!!!!

The Opposite of You (Opposites Attract Series Book 1)
FIVE FREAKING SO AMAZING STARS. I’m even going to say 5 STARS PLUS!!!!! This book was my absolute reading DELIGHT and I highlighted may 75% of it. LOL! YES. IT IS ALL GOOOOOOOD!!!!! EVERY. SINGLE. PART. I have NO “issues” with this one whatsoever, and if any books existed about the other characters in this story (ANY of them!!!), I would be devouring them right now, too.

And… you guys. I just want to announce that I fell in love again. I have not had a TRUE book boyfriend in ages. Months. years? Yes. I would venture to say years. And yet I fell head over heels over the moooooodiest, most arrogant, no-nonsense jerk-face chef EVER.

Killian’s eyes narrowed, and this time when he said my name it was more of a growl than a curse.

“Vera Delane. I’ve never heard of you.”

Fire zinged through me, setting the remaining shreds of my backbone ablaze. “That doesn’t surprise me. We’ve never met before.”

His eyebrows rose in surprise but not in kindness. “Do you know who I am?”

I barely restrained an eye roll.

His name is Killian Quinn, and… I am in love. LOL!!!!!!!!!! Oh just you wait and see, my friends. Just you wait.

Maryse: I would like to announce that I’ve JUST started this one (I have an early copy) and so far, I’m devouring it!!!! I’m totally in love with this story AND the characters and I don’t wan’t to put it down. THIS BOOK IS FUN and it feels SO REAL. Like watching a movie… Perfect pacing, perfect dialogue, REAL characters and OMG I CAN SO RELATE to the heroine. Okay, going back in. I. AM. THRILLED!!!! GAH I LOVE THIS AUTHOR!!!! *squeeeeee!!*

Rachel: Looks so good!!!!

Maryse: LOL!!!! I can’t stop chuckling. This book makes me feel so happy!!! And furious but in an awesome way. Delightful. I am just freaking delighted over this one. DE-LIGHT-ED!!!!!!!!

Lisa:  I CANNOT WAIT!!!!!!

Maryse: You guys are going to LOVE “The Opposite of You” I JUST KNOW IT!!!!!!!!!!!I can’t stop giggling and swooning and OMG this book is so fresh and fun, and perfect and HE IS INFURIATING and it’s so natural the way it’s all unfolding. This is going to be 5 stars I KNOW IT. I am so thrilled I can’t stand it, and I’m just devouring it. It’s… playful but emotional too. Realistic. SO real.

Amy: Ooh! And it’s Rachel Higginson!!! :D I just read the blurb and it sounds like all kinds of FUN.

Jean: Ugh, The Opposite of You isn’t out yet! Not fair Maryse!

Maryse: Listen to how witty this book is.. this is just one of many lines and thoughts that just cracked me up (and I totally relate to her on EVERY level): “His other hand held a cup of coffee just like mine. Except without creamer. Because apparently, he hated himself.” <—- LOL!!!!! I always think that of those that drink their coffee black. Why do they want to hurt themselves that way??!!! And then SHE goes and thinks that.  This book is my perfect book so far. Witty, and awesome banter, and so normal and real and fun and emotional. I LOVE IT. Maryse: P.S. If it’s a series, I have a feeling it will be about other characters (which are just as prominent and amazing in this book as the main characters). I ADORE EVERYONE!!!!!

Cheryl: That’s the kinda book I want to read NOW!!! *crying*

bev: Do you see what book teasing leads to? Somebody hug Cheryl.

Maryse: Dear book buds, This book is why I read. :) That’s all. <3

And NO. I do NOT love the “trendy super-bearded tattooed moody bad-ass look” and yes, the cover at first made me go hmmmmm. How can I possibly fall for a trendy-lumberjack-looking guy? Not that a lumberjack looking guy is not hot. For many… that look totally IS. I get it. I can “see” it. But for me, it’s just a little… that side of too scruffy. Tooooooooooooooooo….. messy. LOL!!! I’m sorry. Beards. Just… not for me (unless it’s the whole 2-3 day scruff and then I think I’m ready for a refresh). ;)

BUT!!! Can you imagine??? I’m not even INTO that look, and this character was so awesome, this story was so awesome, that I’m TOTALLY into him JUST as he is in all of his rugged beard-ness????!!! That means it’s awesome. This author did something BIG here.

SO what’s it about?

Vera is an up and coming gourmet chef the calibre of what we see on the cooking channel, but her future has been railroaded by her scarily abusive ex.

Breaking away and finding herself again in Europe, learning the tricks of the trade in various cuisines across the continent, she comes back with real life experience, and a dream! She’s going to open a food-truck but one that caters to gourmet comfort foods.

Foodie wasn’t going to be a leap toward greatness, but it would be a step out of hell. It would be a lunge in the direction of salvation and the redemption for my first love—food.

Good food.

The best food.

OH HOW I WISH THERE WAS ONE NEAR ME!!!!!!

I could feel my past stalking me like a hungry alligator getting ready to spring. Working somewhere prestigious was no longer an option. Pursuing my dreams was no longer possible. So I had to come up with a contingency plan—another way to do what I loved and piece together my broken life.

Why not open a food truck?

And better yet,  she’s hoping to cater to the very late night bar crowd needing some exquisite delicious gourmet greasy foods to help temper that potential hangover.

My most optimistic fantasy pictured them stumbling drunkenly in droves from the bars and clubs that dotted the trendy part of downtown.

Hungry droves.

Probably wishful thinking, but I didn’t have much to hope for these days. My endeavor with Foodie the food truck was my last ditch effort to salvage the remnants of my career that had gone terribly wrong in the last few years.

Anyway… here’s the kicker. She has no real money to rent space to park her food-truck. But her brother agrees to let her park in the parking lot of his trendy, sporty bike-store after hours. Thing is… this parking lot is across the street of THE HOTTEST most exclusive gourmet restaurant in the city. The kind that you CANNOT get reservations for ’cause they’re booked months in advance.

Lilou was the culmination of all my past dreams and forgotten ambitions. The kitchen was the best in the city. The reservation list was scheduled a month out. The wait staff was rumored to have to go through restaurant boot camp before they were even considered for employment. The owner, Ezra Baptiste, was a shrewd restaurateur famous for three successful restaurants all allegedly named after past girlfriends.

And the chef?

And the current chef? A legend in the industry. At thirty-two, he’d already earned a Michelin Star and the respect of every major restaurant critic, food blogger and worthy food and wine magazine across the country.

He’s a well known, unapologetic pr**k!!!!!! And he CAN get away with it, ’cause he’s JUST THAT GOOD. YAY US!!!

Rumored to be a total ass and dictator in the kitchen, Killian Quinn’s dishes were inspired and fresh, perfect to the point of obsession, but most of all, his refined recipes and plate presentation were copycatted all over the country.

But he’s not YAYING with us. OH HECK NO. HE can’t believe his eyes at the eyesore parked across the street.

He stared in our direction. If my neighbors in our plaza were curious about the silver RV taking up residence in front of the bike shop, splashing Foodie across the front in bright red paint was a pretty good indication of what was going on.

He pulled his helmet off and let it dangle in one hand. I flinched, taking an instinctive step back. I couldn’t make out the finer details of his features, but I hate you was pretty much written all over his squared shoulders and angry aura.

Killian Quinn knew what moved in across the street from him and it was safe to say he was not a fan.

And oh BOY does he let it be known.

I realized that this was the craziest thing I’d ever done. And the stupidest.

It wasn’t the truck that was foolish. It was opening a pseudo fast food restaurant across the plaza from one of America’s rising chefs.

And I’m stopping there, ’cause the rest is the most decadently realistic romance-ride I’ve been on in ages.

Oh my friends… what a JERK FACE he is. Oh YES HE IS. But OMG he and his crew are freaking hilarious in their antics and you can’t help but fall in love with them ALL at the same time as foaming at the mouth in fury over them. LOL!!!!!!

‘Cause they are SO endearing… and especially Killian in his own moody way. HOLY MOLY… HOLY MOLY!!!!!!!!

There is SO much more to him, and in fact, to everyone, in this story than the simple “girl meets boy” love story. This is laden in real life experiences, emotions, trepidations and angst. But NOTHING was over the top for me. It all made sense. It all progressed realistically. NATURALLY. It was one of the most DELIGHTFUL SLOW BURNS I’ve ever read EVER. It was just soooooo….. OH NO HE DIDN’T!!!!!! And then…. *swoooooooooooon* I’m in love. ………YUM!!!!!!!! IN EVERY POSSIBLY YUMMY WAY. From the food served, to the love story we get to indulge in. The most decadent indulgence but not in that “overly-sweet” way. ;)

This book, this story, EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER and the ENTIRE PROGRESSION was just SO good, so realistic, so EXACTLY what I LOVE to read, that I fell in LOVE with this bearded, brooding, bad-ass so hard. Nope. Not “bad boy”. This guy’s got no TIME for “bad boy”. He’s full on the best of  the best and makes no qualms about it. And I believe every single word.

I know. I already said that. And now I said it twice. But you guys. YOU. GUYS. THIS BOOK IS MY ROMANCE BOOK PERFECTION. Don’t be scared. DON’T.

I know you know I tend to get extra excited over the more forbidden, or scary, or twisty-crazy book territories. I will assure you, that this one is NOT one of those. I’m NOT saying it’s sweet and safe. I’m just saying it’s… real and believable and totally addicting. I NEVER wanted to put this book down. EVER. But sometimes I had to, and when I picked it back up, I picked up my EXACT-energy level for it, each and every time. It never fizzled. It never became cliché (or at least… not over-the-top-eyerollingly kind of cliché that just makes it an exact of every other).

This contemporary romance novel stands out brilliantly amongst its peers, and is the STAR of my reading month. And year.

And now officially one of “those” forever favorites that I will always squee about. There’s just some magic about this one. This story, these characters, the pacing, the flow, the wit, the emotion and the dialogue… this author pulls it all together like it’s real life, and I’m a fly on the wall wishing I was her.

The WHOLE thing just does it for me. In fact, I’ve loved every one by this author, but I want to say that to me? This was her BEST ONE yet!!!! WOW.

5 STARS PLUS. THIS IS ONE OF THOSE!!!!!!!! And I’m announcing it now. As much as I’ve LOVED this author’s past books, this is her BEST YET. HOLY MOLY READ IT NOW. Er… or as soon as it’s live. ;) I PROMISE.

P.S. Thank you to the author for sending me a review copy. I absolutely, wholeheartedly LOVED it.

eek Ooooooooh yeah that’s some serious book-hoarding!!!

Patrice needs our support my friends… she’s got a serious book addiction. Worse than mine. Maybe even worse than yours.

Because as much as I don’t want to delete anything, she can’t even delete a sample!!!

She says:

So I sample every ebook I look up. I mean even if I don’t think I will read it.

So I not only have hundreds of books I have not read. I have hundreds of sample books I have not read.

I don’t resleeve my books because I never know what book mood I am in. I can’t delete any books because  I am afraid it is the one book I want to read.

Maryse thank you for your support.

Patrice… I feel you. I can’t delete a single book from my repertoire (read or not read, new or years old…), but you have me beat, my friend. Even the samples?!! ALL OF ‘EM?

*hug*

I’m so glad you’re with us. You are definitely a fellow book hoarder!

So what does YOUR book addiction look like? Can you relate to Patrice?

Happy new release day!!! We have sexy, steamy, emotional, and dreamy. <— Me being corny again. ;) We also have daaaaaark romance from two very much-loved dark romance authors. And of course, paranormal yumminess!

And then just in a few days, one of my newest favorite books in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD is going live and I’m SO jealous of anyone that gets to read it for the first time. The Opposite of You by Rachel Higginson (my review) <— Yes. It’s one of those!!! :D Eeeeeeeeeep! Just a couple of days left for that one. OH I CANNOT WAIT FOR YOU GUYS TO READ IT!!!!!

So what looks extra good to me today? Oh well that one up there to the left (of course!!). Stripped Bare (Second chance romance with a single mom/stripper in Vegas and the guy that once broke her heart that promises to pay all her debts… IF she’s his for awhile…), Beach Wedding (the Eversea series finale!!! I love that series!), Beauty and the Book Boyfriend  (she’s a reclusive author that never expected to get so popular, and now her publisher wants to her go on tour), The Fourteen Day Soul Detox (this one sounds intense!!! Her husband died and left her with incredible debt, and she’s turned to his best friend…), Kiss Marry Kill: Iron-Clad Security (a new one by Sidney Halston – a pop star and her bodyguard…), Surrender (KITTY THOMAS!!! I love that super-short blurb. It says just enough for me to be darkly titillated ;) She loves him and wants a white-picket fence, and he wants her to be his slave), and Crazy Over You (Daisy Prescott’s latest!!! Her one night stand doesn’t remember her at all. *whoops* But the blurb says it so much better than I do ;) ).

Oh yeah!! And don’t forget to check out the Monday early bird list in case you missed it. There are some goodies on there too! ➔ 15 Earlybird Book Releases

Happy Monday!! :D !!!! Oh don’t grumble… yes it’s another work week for so many of us, but we have so much to look forward to throughout the day thinking of that awesome book just waiting to be picked up again. Or maybe one we haven’t started yet but that we’re dying to. Or maybe… we haven’t even chosen one yet, but we KNOW we’ll be reading something the minute we get home. I LOVE IT!

The books continue to keep us company anxiously awaiting our arrival back home to help us indulge and escape in pure book-bliss. YAY!! And today. there are just over a dozen great looking ones that just went live, before our SUPER-BIG release day on Tuesday. I always love these extra surprises.

P.S. My latest review is coming shortly! I spent the weekend indulging in this one (My Life Next Door), per the recommendations of two of my book buddies and I so enjoyed it!!! I’ll tell you more in just a bit. ;)

But in the meantime, take a look at the…

EARLYBIRDS THAT JUST WENT LIVE!!

Time for another author news round up, and today it may be short, but it’s certainly sweet! Let’s start off with the big “release” news of the day. Which is this Sunday Surprise…

<—- IT’S LIVE!!!!!!! THE LATEST BY CORINNE MICHAELS (Say I’m Yours) IS LIVE ALERT!!!! Oooooooh sounds like unrequited love!!! She’s been in love with him forever, and he doesn’t respond…

“I’m done being invisible.
It’s time to move on.

A single dance sets my new reality into motion, and I welcome it. After all, Cooper Townsend is perfect. He’s kind, sexy, and attentive—everything a girl could want.

I thought I got it right this time.
That my heart could mend, and I would be happy.
Apparently, some things really are just too hard to walk away from…”

And here’s the latest in our book world:

Tijan just announced the release of TWO MORE Fallen Crest books (FALLEN CREST 6 (Fallen Crest Series) AND FALLEN CREST 7 (Fallen Crest Series) and posted the cover reveal, title reveal, blurb and an excerpt of #6 (“Fallen Crest Home“)!!! Here’s just a small snippet of all that she posted to give you an idea. ;)

She was going back home to see her mother…

“I avoided her for a year and a half, but I couldn’t hide anymore.
Mason had an internship in Fallen Crest, so we headed back for the summer.
And when we got there—no one was prepared for what happened.”

Colleen Hoover just posted a gorgeous, eerie teaser on her Facebook page for her upcoming book Without Merit: A Novel. Now I’m getting an “idea” of what we’re in for, and it’s full on pure Colleen Hoover-sounding!! YAY US!!!! It says:

“Not every mistake deserves a consequence. Some only deserve forgiveness.”

Colleen Hoover‘s upcoming tv series for her novel Confess now has a “First Look” video available! ”

Confess First Look
The cast and creators give a behind the scenes first look at Confess. Premieres Tuesday, April 4.”

Meghan Quinn lets us into a little “behind the book” information about her latest release Co-WRECKER (about the nerdy guy that wanted his co-worker to finally notice him). “…I would have even settled for her seeing me as anything but a nerd — but there was no getting through. So just like any hard-headed, red-blooded man out there, I made up my mind. I’d make my coworker fall for me...” Well, much of this story was based on the author’s OWN love story. She says:

“…we are going to be talking about Co-WRECKER and how much of it is our actual love story.

**HINT HINT** there is a lot of it that’s our love story. “

Abbi Glines has a new book coming out in less than a month! Boys South of the Mason Dixon will be releasing April 24th. You can check our the whole blurb, but here’s a snipper from it. ;)

Welcome to the world of the Sutton boys. Five brothers who fight, party, drink a little too much, but more importantly, they love their momma. Nothing can tear them apart… until the girl next door wins more than one of their hearts.

Christina Lauren alert!! TWO new books coming out!!! Autoboyography (M/M ROMANCE!!!) and OH YOU GUYS this one I know will be good. bev!!!!! Fabi!!!! Everyone!!! Just check out this mini-blurb. You’ll see! And here are the real details over on “Hypable” which reveals the cover, gives us more in depth detail on what the book is about, PLUS an excerpt!!

Fangirl meets Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda in this funny and poignant coming-of-age novel from New York Times bestselling author Christina Lauren about two boys who fall in love in a writing class—one from a progressive family and the other from a conservative religious community.

Christina Lauren has another upcoming release called Roomies and the tease on that one is just perfect for us! “Marriages of convenience are so…inconvenient.”

Hausfrau: A Novel <— Eeeeeeeep!!! HAUSFRAU IS ON SUPER-BARGAIN ALERT!! And I 5-star LOVED this book!! Here’s my review! Thank you Amy (for recommending the book to me, AND for finding this super-bargain today).

Amy: Hey ladies…

<— This one just sounds like my perfect happy-read per these fellow readers. And now we’re THREE books deep! I need to dig in!!! See what I did there? Dig in? Three books deep? Cupcakes? I’m clever right? *snort* Okay… I’m corny. Y’all already know that. ;)

DG: Just want to say that I am LOVING this fun little read – Always Room for Cupcakes! An h who takes pics of some kinky situations, a great bestie who owns a bakery (love some cupcakes!!!!), potential dangerous situation which the biker alpha hottie may or may not end up rescuing the h! Oh, did I mention the alpha biker hottie likes some kink too?!?! *whew, swipes forehead* Yep, I’m All In!

Lisa C: Always Room for Cupcakes was a cute, funny read. I needed a little break after all the more angsty books lately. I’ll be reading the next one when it comes out.

DG: Just want to rave about that fun little read I finished this morning – Always Room for Cupcakes! Loved it! Just what I needed….definitely some OMG moments…some first references (the possible need for a shoe horn! *giggle*)…and one kinky hot alpha biker (who reminds me of Tack for some reason which makes it all good!). Loved that she made me laugh, crave cupcakes, no angst and crave even MORE cupcakes!!!!

Lauren: I read the first book a few months ago & absolutely LOVED it!! I had no idea the others were out…..just in time for Spring Break!

About book #1:

One day I was be-bopping along jamming to the music in my head while wondering if my thighs could handle grabbing a cupcake on the way home. The next thing I knew, my entire world crashed and burned.

I used to wake up at night in a sweat, crying because I’d dreamt that my husband was cheating on me, or that he hated me, and resented my kids. He’d always hold me close and tell me it was all just a dream, that he loved me and our family and that he’d never let me go.

He was a f**king liar.

Now I spend my days taking photos of scum just like him, trying to be a champion for other’s being taken advantage of by the losers in our town, and my nights being a single mom to my beautiful twins.

I’ve got great friends who have my back, and a sexy, mysterious motorcycle man who keeps showing up when I need him. Maybe things are starting to look up, and one thing’s for sure… There’s always room for cupcakes.

FIGHTER SERIES ALERT & there’s BIG love for this one!!

Laura: Not sure if I missed it but is The Hurricane by RJ Prescott on the list? The hero is a boxer and the heroine is a college student struggling to cope with her abusive past.Both characters are living in poverty. It’s a wonderful romantic story and is one of my favourite books from 2015. I highly recommend it.

Marion:  I’m currently reading The Hurricane by R.J Prescott, fans of Beautiful Disaster this is one you need to get to pronto! (I’ll even go out on a limb and say this one has got me more hooked than BD)

Kel: The Hurricane is amazing

Shunda: Just finished The Hurricane and OMG!! I died. It had such a BD feel to it. Read through the night and was a zombie for work. SOOOOO worth it!!

Rosheen: Thanks for the Hurricane recommendation . Great read! Usually avoid NA like the plague (no offence to anyone who reads and enjoys them, just not my thing). But very compelling read.

About book #1:

Emily McCarthy is living in fear of a dark and dangerous past. A gifted mathematician, she is little more than a hollow, broken shell, trying desperately to make ends meet long enough to finish her degree.

Through an unlikely friendship with the aging, cantankerous owner of an old boxing gym, Em is thrown into the path of the most dangerous man that she has ever met.

Cormac “the Hurricane” O’Connell is cut, tattooed and dangerous. He is a lethal weapon with no safety and everyone is waiting for the misfire. He’s never been knocked out before, but when he meets Em he falls, HARD. Unlike any other girl he’s ever met, she doesn’t want anything from him. Just being around her makes him want to be a better person.

They are polar opposites who were never meant to find each other, but some things are just worth the fight.

Happy Friday!!!! Who’s spending their weekend reading? —-> THIS GIRL!!!!!! <—- :P Whatcha reading this weekend, how are you liking it, and what are you highly anticipating to read? I’m still in choice-mode, so maybe you have one for me (although “Prisoned” below is sure calling me name).

And if you haven’t decided yet, either, perhaps THIS list might have your next one!!! I’ll be updating it throughout the dy and evening as more recommendations or bargain finds are discovered. :D

Now… take a look at what we found! (NOTE: some are bargain priced when I added them, but prices can change on Amazon, so make sure to check before you finalize your order. Sales listed are for Amazon U.S., however some of the Amazon UK links also reflect the sale!):

  • An Act of Courage (Acts of Honor Series Book 4) by K.C. Lynn <— MUCH LOVED SECOND CHANCE ROMANCE ALERT! “…Alissa Malone never thought she would find herself face-to-face again with the only boy she’s ever loved. But she soon realizes Christopher is not the same man he once was…” back on the list ’cause Charlene loves it!

Charlene: An act of courage by KC Lynn and loving it!

Rebecca: I’ve heard fab things about this book. Do you have to have read any of her other books before this one, or is it a standalone? X

Charlene: It is a really get book just finished it! Do read it :-) I guess it can be read as a standalone but i do suggest to at least read the 3rd book in this series which is the one before this book. You’ll enjoy it more as you’ll know better the characters’ history. If you can though read the full series it’s amazing! X

  • CON MAN by T. Torrest <— LIVE!!! HE’S IN THE UGLY DUCKLING MAKEOVER BUSINESS… “…But when Ainsley Carrington signs up as a client, Luke’s world is thrown into a tailspin. Ainsley doesn’t need an image consultant; her image is already perfect just the way it is. Luke immediately finds himself grappling with his attraction to the introverted beauty…”
  • Ripple Effect: Episode Three (A Dark Hitman Erotic Romance Book 3) by Keri Lake <— LIVE!!! KERI LAKE ALERT!!! I love this author! “From the author of Ricochet and Backfire comes a dark erotic suspense serial …” (I won’t read the blurb ’cause I don’t wanna spoil it for myself)
  • The Deep End: The Honey Series by Kristen Ashley <— KRISTEN ASHLEY ALERT!!! Janet recommends TWO books. But especially this one (because even though KA is one of my favs, I was hesitant about this one)
Janet: Ok, just devoured L.A. Fiore’ s Devil You Know (Lost Boys Book 1) ( Lost Boys Book 1) – GREAT recommendation – and Kristen Ashley’s The Deep End: The Honey Series. Both VERY good reads. Maryse – I know you think you’re not going to like KA’s new one because its about a Dominatrix but I DARE you to read it, and tell me you didn’t love it! The characters were just so likeable and somehow she turns subject-matter that seems often seems hard to relate to, and over-the-top, into a big love story with kink. Devil You Know (Lost Boys Book 1) was just a great big sweeping romance, with a terrific hero and heroine.Courtney: Loving and can’t put down Devil You Know! Thanks so much for the recommendation!
  • Sex (Hollywood Love Book 4) by Jillian Dodd <— JILLIAN DODD’S LATEST IS LIVE!!! KEATYN CHRONICLES SPINOFF!! “Follow the lives and loves of those who work at Captive Films. Hot, successful, playboy Riley Johnson, whose business success far exceeds his success in love. Movie star, Keatyn Douglas, whose epic love story has spawned a series of books and movies. And Dawson Johnson, who joins Captive with a tragic past. Expect lots of drama, sex, and tabloid-worthy events.”
  • If the Duke Demands (Capturing the Carlisles) by Anna Harrington <— HISTORICAL THAT WAS SOMEWHAT FORBIDDENY!!! Dianne recommends this one!
Dianne: Maryse, just want to let you know that I wanted to go for something safe between the books that just gets your mind totally messed up. Came across Anna Harrington’s new book “If the Duke Demands”. I have to tell you this was a absolute gorgeous read.  The female character was so strong and witty – I have not loved a herione as much before. And even though it was a safe choice – let me tell you the steamy scenes were not!!! I also love the forbidden and this had some elements….. so it was hot. Her writing is so captivating that I definately will be looking at the remainder of the series which is about the other two Carlise brothers… yummy
  • F*ck Club: Con by Shiloh Walker <— EX-ESCORT IS HUNG UP ON A WOMAN… “…Finding a date or company for the night has never been an issue for him, either. He’s been told more than once that he can charm a tiger out of its stripes. But lately a new hire at the bar is turning the tables on him—she is the one charming him, twisting him up into knots and getting him so worked up, he can barely see straight…
  • Archer’s Voice by Mia Sheridan <— RECLUSIVE HERO & THIS IS ONE OF MY 5-STAR FAVORITES!!! And… Jennifer just discovered this oldie-but-goodie that was a HUGE hit here (I 5-starred it!!!) She says:
Jennifer: OH-MY-LAWRD. Where to begin…So I finished Archer’s Voice earlier and after I finished I had to send the kids outside to play so I could sit in silence and cope with my emotions and let me tell you I had so many emotions going on, like it literally brought every emotion known to WOMAN out. LOL. It was my first time reading anything by Mia Sheridan and I simply cannot say much I enjoyed her work. It was OH-SO beautifully written and I felt everything Bree and Archer felt, like I was right there in the book (and that rarely happens). I laughed (oh did I laugh), I got angry and wanted to throat-punch certain characters, I smiled so big my cheeks started hurting and then I cried, I cried BIG FAT WHOPPING tears and gosh the ending… I thought for sure it was going down another direction considering how Mia Sheridan worded it and I almost didn’t flip the page, but hunny, I’m so ecstatic that I did… NEVER SAW THAT ENDING COMING. LOL.
I cannot thank you enough for recommending this book, I have been following your blog for years now and I’m not sure what I would do if you decided to stop blogging ( hope that didn’t sound too dramatic), but it’s true. You are truly gifted in what you do
And to all your followers, do me a favor (a total stranger) and listen up… If you have not read Archer’s Voice by Mia Sheridan, stop what your doing RIGHT NOW and get yourself a copy. I PROMISE PROMISE PROMISE you will not be disappointed and you will fall in love all over again. Definitely a 5 star book if not more.
Fabi: I just finished a 5 star YA Dystopian, The Testing. This one is for fans of The Hunger Games, Divergent, and The Maze Runner. It’s been years since I got these feels from a story. Easily as good as all those I just mentioned.
  • Beyond Fate by Susan V. Vaughn <—- LIVE!!!  SECOND CHANCE ROMANCE ALERT!! “Julia Diaz never wanted to fall for her friend’s older brother, especially at a college frat party. But, for some reason, her heart was stolen by Russell that night. Eight years after, she never forgot him. Now destiny has brought them together.”
  • Bonfires by Amy Lane <— LIVE!!! M/M ROMANCE ALERT!! A coach and a science teacher… “…It only takes one kiss for two men approaching fifty to start acting like teenagers in love, even amid all the responsibilities they shoulder. Then an act of violence puts their burgeoning relationship on hold...”
Fabi:  *happy happy dance* Oh…Wait…She always tears my heart out. :-( Oh well, that’s ok. Amy Lane can do whatever she wants with my heart. *happy dance happy dance*
  • The Compound Series by Melissa Brown <— MULTIPLE WIVES ALERT!!! Malin made this recommendation quick and simple and intense. She says:
Malin: The Compound Series by Melissa Brown. A six star series.
  • Co-WRECKER by Meghan Quinn <— LIVE YESTERDAY (in case you missed it)!! MEGHAN QUINN’S LATEST!!He wants his coworker to notice him… “I wanted to be friends — I would have even settled for her seeing me as anything but a nerd — but there was no getting through. So just like any hard-headed, red-blooded man out there, I made up my mind. I’d make my coworker fall for me…”
  • The Tempting Series: Books 1-4: Tempting, Beguiling, Provocative, Addicted by Alex Lucian <— FORBIDDEN ROMANCE SERIES BUNDLE SUPER-BARGAIN!! LIVE YESTERDAY (in case you missed it) TEACHER-STUDENT… “It had begun innocently enough, bumping into one another in a crowded Boston bar. What followed that night had been anything but innocent. Because I’d known, even as he’d slid inside of me, that he was my professor. I’d pursued him, a predator stalking its prey. And he didn’t know I was his student. But he would.”
  • Animal: A Prisoned Spinoff Standalone by Marni Mann <— MARNI MANN’S LATEST SUPER-DARK ROMANCE READ IS LIVE (YESTERDAY in case you missed it)!!! HE’S THE GUARD…. REMEMBER ”Prisoned: A Dark Twisted Erotic Standalone“?!!! So many dark-read lovers went crazy for it!! Well lookie what we have here!!!
Jean: I just 1-clicked …especially Animal because Prisoned left you with that “wondering WTF” feeling at the end!

Grey: 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, (Dirty Filthy Rich Men <— it is just a duet). It was hella hot, had a jerkface bully, witty banter, in short…it checked a lot of my boxes!

March 23, 2017

Oh this book already has my heart by this fellow reader’s description. I just know I’d fall in love HARD. It has TONS of info and this one will be SO easy to guess, for those that have read it, or have heard of it!! There’s a big spoiler but it’s “spoiler-noticed” Aneesah asks: Hello there. [...]
