“Travis is haunted by the mysterious death of his wife three years before. He carries with him the guilt of not being there to protect the one person who meant everything to him. He has buried his wife, but his heart refuses to accept that the body six feet under is hers. His obsessive search for her leads him deep into the trenches of covert ops—where everything is not what it seems.

Caitlin Kincaid has been on the run for a while. The sum of her memories began three years ago when she awakened with a broken arm and leg and a severe concussion. Hunted down by a secret group within the U.S. government, her companion persuades her to stay off the grid because of the standing kill order on their heads. One night, while fleeing assassins, she is left on the side of the road with a cryptic message: “It’s time for you to stop running. I’m not the one you love.”

When Travis receives news that the woman who has turned up at the American Embassy in Berlin could be his wife, he wastes no time getting to her. He is unprepared for the devastation that shreds him when Caitlin looks at him with no recognition in her eyes. Amnesia is a challenging enough obstacle for winning the love of his life back, but with lies defining the past three years of her life, Caitlin becomes wary of anyone’s help.”

Her quest leads her to Skin Stories, a new tattoo parlor a block from her apartment.

With the help of two unlikely allies, she’ll wage the battle for Heaven. But will Emma be sidetracked by a new sort of heaven along the way? What’s truly more dangerous? Falling from Heaven, or falling in love?”

What are some other crime/mafia books that you have liked?

Maryse July 11, 2014 at 2:00 PM

I know Sally and Lori are loving CD Reiss’s mafia series: Songs of Corruption. It’s on this list as a spinoff but I think it can be read separately. :) http://www.maryse.net/reading-order-guide/cd-reiss-songs-of-submission-series-reading-order.html

Maari July 11, 2014 at 2:03 PM

Maryse July 11, 2014 at 3:17 PM

Michelle July 11, 2014 at 3:31 PM

Don’t forget about Thrive by Krista and Becca Ritchie, 2.5 in the Addicted Series. I cannot wIt to get my hands on it. I need some more Lily and Lo!!!

Michelle July 11, 2014 at 3:32 PM

Thrive releases on July 18th and it is a full length novella

Amy July 11, 2014 at 3:35 PM

An instigator? Nah, let’s just say you’re a provocateur – and we’ll call me a rabble-rouser!! Oh lord, I’m wound up again today. :D

Hmmmm…I think I’ll tackle Decker’s Wood this weekend. *gasp* Not that way! :P

Maryse July 11, 2014 at 3:43 PM

Lauren July 11, 2014 at 4:16 PM

The 3rd & final Volkov Bravta book by London Miller (Mischa & Lauren’s story) came out last night.

Amy July 11, 2014 at 5:39 PM

*snicker* :P

So, my “new purchase” read will be either Sessions Interrupted (one-clicked that naughtiness a couple of days ago!) or It’s Always Been You. Oh! I also found one called The Resurrection of Aubrey Miller that looks intriguing. But then there is Smoldering…pretty cover, interesting blurb…and that nice-looking glass of wine on the front doesn’t hurt either!

Cheryl July 11, 2014 at 7:06 PM

Hey Maryse- have you thought about posting an ultimate list of “sports-theme” books? Like Falling into Infinity, the Perfect Game series. I was in the mood to read one. ;)

Lauren July 11, 2014 at 7:06 PM

Ashley, I just read The Boss’s Love by Casey Clipper & I loved it. Mafia love story, no cliffhanger. Cover & title isn’t great so I almost didn’t buy but so glad I did. Also, The Arrangement by Bethany-Kris. I’ve re-read that one a dozen times. E.L. Montes’s Disastrous & Cautious….2 books, mafia/crime love story & sooooo good!

Cynthia July 11, 2014 at 7:37 PM

Hi Maryse!!! I’m from Brazil and Iove your blog and recommendations. This week I read a sweet and amazing book: “Puddle Jumping” by Amber L. Johnson. It’s a short and beautiful love story about a very special boy and an amazing girl that loves him unconditionally. The author writes from the heart and it’s a world she is well versed in. It’s just US$ 0,98.

Lauren July 12, 2014 at 7:20 AM

Capo, the sequel to Soldier by Lilliana Rhodes is out.

Fabi July 12, 2014 at 9:56 AM

I’m still holding my breath for Word Play. It’s supposed to be out on July 14th but there is no pre-order available. Something to do with publishing ways. Here’s a blurb:

” Michael Rourke learned this the hard way.

Struggling to make ends meet as a mystery writer, he sold his soul – and his pride – as he pedaled sex and lust writing under the pen name Christoph Strong.

No one knew he was the one behind the steamy stories on the bestsellers lists. And he planned to keep it that way.

Until he met her.

Monica Singer, an infamous blogger, is keen to discover the truth of his secret identity.”

Doesn’t that sound interesting?

Maryse July 12, 2014 at 11:49 AM

It DOES!!! Ooooooooh!!

Maryse July 12, 2014 at 11:50 AM

Thank you Cynthia! I’m going to look it up right now! :D

Michelle July 12, 2014 at 9:25 PM

I am reading Take, by Ella Frank the sequel to Try…. and I think I need a bag of ice to cool myself down. I have attacked my husband and it still hasn’t helped. It has me totally and completely turned on…. and it’s about two men!! Crazy, I know, but they are incredibly hot. I’m only 20% in. I will self-combust at this rate. Blay and Quinn who???? Logan and Tate are impossible to resist. If you are in the mood for steamy steamy steamy, give Take a Try!! (Fanning myself).

Jen C July 13, 2014 at 3:11 PM

Flat-Out Celeste is bargain priced for 99c for another 23ish hours!

Helen July 13, 2014 at 4:08 PM

Ohhhh…. You have Undeniable by Serena Grey on your list. <3 <3 that sexy tearjerker. I just one clicked Mud Vein. Thanks.

Maryse July 13, 2014 at 4:25 PM

Amy I just bought Big Fatty mascara!!! Yay me! I can’t wait to try it. And I bought a Sephora purple liquid liner to go with my gorgeous purple quad. I love makeup. And books. Oh happy day! :P

Amy July 13, 2014 at 6:28 PM

Yay is right!! I love Big Fatty when I’m not wearing a lot of eyeshadow and/or with winged eyeliner. Oh! Winged/cateye would be a *beautiful* style with the purple liquid liner and purple quad. Make sure the next time you pose with a book you are all decked out in those colors! You know, because I said to and all. ;)

Books, makeup, polish…happy day indeed!! Throw in a martini or mojito and I’ll be one giddy girl! :D Okay, diving into Unbeloved now…
