- Uncovered by Emily Snow <— JUST RELEASED! Sounds like an interesting mystery romance. “My stepmother who took everything after my father died fourteen years ago. The plan was simple—figure out what role she played in my father’s death and expose her to the world. But here’s another thing: simplicity doesn’t exist, and my plans are flawed from the beginning because I never anticipated Oliver. Sexy, too smart for his own good, and infuriating, he’s the one person who could blow my plans to uncover Margaret. She’s his mother, and in another life, that would have made him my stepbrother…” <— Ruh Roh!
- Bloom (Unspoken Series Book 5) by Marilyn Grey <— JUST RELEASED!! (for those of you following this sweet-sounding series)
- Wicked Innocence by Missy Johnson <— JUST RELEASED! Oh sounds like risky reading-fun, too! She’s 17, lead singer of a band (with fake ID). “Then He showed up. Saxon Waite, ex bad boy of rock. He’s hot as hell and so into me. But he’s also twenty-five.” <— *eeeep!*
- Vain – Part Two (The Vain Series Book 2) by Deborah Bladon <— Thank you Fabi for this heads-up!! She says: “Vain part two is out! Oh ladies, if you haven’t yet read it…I mentioned it before but didn’t want to yell and scream until part two came out. *yelling and screaming*” <— YAY!!!! (P.S. And here’s VAIN (The VAIN Series Book 1))
Happy Friday!! Or should I call it “happy squirrel-day”? ‘Cause that’s what this list is doing to me. What to do? What to choose next? Of course, I have my current “trusty” TBR list that I just know is a winner through and through. And then Tuesday’s new releases seems so AH-MAZING and I’ve already finished and LOVED one from that list (Ugly Love <— my review). But then… there’s THIS LIST. GAH!
Which ones? All of ‘em have me interested. But for me, these are especially tempting: Truce (her whole series is on sale, and I LOVE this author. I still haven’t read Truce, and it seems everyone loved it like crazy. In fact, it’s on another one of my TBR lists, so I’m excited about it’s sale price!). Okay and Lovely Vicious (that one there, to the left. The recommendations for this series have me SO excited that I didn’t even read the blurb. In fact, I was told to go in blind for maximum impact). YAY ME!! And The Good Girl (not bargain priced, but OMG that dark-read blurb made me *eeeeeep!!*) It sounds awesome. Destined Series Box Set (sounds like an angsty love-triangle with tragedy and such). I usually love those. Ohhhh and also this new release: The Unfortunates (sounds dark, too… she’s “trained”? Kidnapped? I dunno… but freaky-sounding!)
P.S. Let me know if I’m missing any or if you loved any (from this list or elsewhere).

I know where she buys her groceries, where she has her dry cleaning done, where she works. I don’t know the color of her eyes or what they look like when she’s scared. But I will.” Born to a prominent Chicago judge and his stifled socialite wife, Mia Dennett moves against the grain as a young inner-city art teacher. One night, Mia enters a bar to meet her on-again, off-again boyfriend. But when he doesn’t show, she unwisely leaves with an enigmatic stranger. With his smooth moves and modest wit, at first Colin Thatcher seems like a safe one-night stand. But following Colin home will turn out to be the worst mistake of Mia’s life. ” <—- Eeeeeeeeeep!!!!

- Kill Devil Hills by Sarah Darlington <— Jenny found us one saying: “I loved this book!! And it is on sale for a limited time!!” A bit from the blurb: “Four months ago, Noah saved Georgie’s life, but he thought that was where his involvement with his friend’s sister would end.

We were both hell bent on burning each other to the ground. Tripp was sexy as hell, a charismatic beast, and soon became one of my best friends. We shared a love of ice cream and tattoos as we blazed our own path that could only lead to a beautiful train wreck.”

Sounds Angsty and definitely love triangley!!” A bit from the blurb: “Mira and Danny are looking forward to their future as husband and wife. Everything was going according to plan. That was until tragedy struck them on graduation night leaving three broken people to pick up the pieces. Skylar has always stood in the background, watching his best friend begin a life with the woman he fell in love with until he can no longer keep a distance. Right when Mira thinks her life is back on track it spirals out of control.“
- Abstract Love by Samantha Christy <— I’m bringing this one back from last week’s list, too, ’cause Janet now recommends it! “This one was an uplifting take on a gut wrenching subject. Really sweet love story.” Oh yeah I remember this one! Two people from “different sides of the tracks” and then… “Fate has dealt them each an unfortunate blow. While they are fighting for life and facing mortality, they meet in the most unlikely place. Keri and Jace find they share a connection deeper than most people can fathom.“

The last line of this blurb has me. “Top acquisitions officer and international playboy Tony Carmine is about to close the biggest deal of his career. But then he meets Heather at a speed dating event . . . and discovers losing control may be exactly what he needs. Her blossoming sensuality occupies his every thought, consuming him with the need to possess the most intriguing lover he’s ever encountered-until he walks into the boardroom and sees Heather on the other side of the negotiating table.“
- Grace Street (Chapter 8, #1) by Ella Dominguez <— DARK READ ALERT! Aimee found us this one asking about (mentioning the good reviews) and Stephanie said: “…her new novel/series, Grace Street (Chapter 8, #1), was in a league of its own. This twisted novel rocked my world! The hero and heroine were both strong yet very damaged. Their story was psychologically dark and gritty, and I couldn’t stop reading it!“
- Giving In: The Shore Series by M.R. Joseph <— Aimee found us this one and Lauren recommends it: “Great book….and the sequel just came out! I loved them both!” From the blurb, I’m getting the “player” meets the “jaded-in-love” girl: “…What she doesn’t have is the luxury of being someone’s first choice in the game of love. She always comes in a distant second place, leaving her guarded with her feelings. Lies, betrayal, and secrets of her past follow her wherever she goes, no matter how hard she tries to hide them. That is until she’s reunited with the one guy who can ignite the spark in her heart that’s been extinguished for so long.“
- Always In: The Shore Series Book 2 by M.R. Joseph <— And here’s book #2!
- Desired: Club Sin by Stacey Kennedy <— Aimee loved this one! “…amazing! I am really loving this series! This is the third book in the Club Sin series and the best so far, in my opinion. Each story can be read as a stand alone, but helps to have the background and history behind previous characters. I was hooked from the beginning and found it hard to put down.“
- Temptation (Club X Book 1) by K.M. Scott <— JUST RECENTLY RELEASED! Looks like it could be fun! “Olivia Lucas needs a job, and if that means working at a club that specializes in making members’ wildest fantasies come true, then that’s what she’ll do. A girl’s got to pay the rent, right? She never expected to fall for the gorgeous owner of Club X, though, but a man like him would never go for someone like her. Or would he?“
- Indiscretion: Volume One by Elisabeth Grace <— JUST RECENTLY RELEASED! (looks like a serial series). A bit from the blurb: “The fact that she worked for the competition should’ve been reason enough for me to leave her alone. I had a job to do that summer and f*cking Chloe wasn’t part of it. But I was like a man possessed. I’d do whatever it took to have her again.”
- The Unfortunates by Skyla Madi <— JUST RECENTLY RELEASED! Ooooh sounds like a dark read! Kidnap? Okay I really enjoyed another book by this author, and need to catch up with those, and suddenly, I’m quite excited about this one, too! I don’t know which part of the blurb to highlight. The whole thing sounds good! “He won’t hurt me and he won’t take from me, but he keeps me close… So close I can smell him on my skin even when I’m alone. Growing up it was ingrained in me that I do whatever I can to please my Fortunate. It was ingrained in me that I be loyal and faithful, and that I love my Fortunate more than I love myself. I expected that I’d want to please him. I expected that I would be loyal and faithful, just like I was taught… But I didn’t expect to fall in love with him.“
