Another BIG BIG LIST today!! Lots of reader recommendations, below, and… I surfed Amazon for a bit and featured a few that have me wanting to read them. I had a *light-ish* reading week (A Little Too Far gave me that awesome book hangover that I had a hard time recovering from), but this list has some that look like standouts, and I’m ready for more!
A couple of new rock star books that I hadn’t heard of yet, a married woman… scorned, a bunch of new (to me) fighter books that make me do a happy dance… a human girl kidnapped by a vampire clan & turned into a slave for the dark prince’s harem (oh!) and of course, some sweet/heartbreaking books, bad boy books, bikers!! YES! Biiiikeerrrrrsss… to hold us over until Madeline Sheehan’s upcoming bad-ass biker book is released on October 1st. I AM READY!

- Adam, Enough Said (This Can’t be Happening) by Lynda LeeAnne <— Neika went nuts for it! “HOLY MOLY if your looking for a cop swooning book boyfriend I Totally recommend the this book called “Adam”. Although its a series you can read each as a standalone. Between all 3 books I loved Adam best but the other two are quite close. But if you want to get totally engrossed read the whole series. the reading order is “Lexi, Baby“, “Trish, Just Trish” and my new cop swooning new boyfriend “Adam” Did I mention all the men in this series are alphas…as in A.L.P.H.A.S. You wont regret at allllllll P.S. Adam is over 400 pages so you really really get to enjoy him!!!!!!” Why, yes Neika… I am in search of a few good cops.

- The Proposition (The Plus One Chronicles) by Jennifer Lyon <— UFC fighter alert! Brought to my attention by Cathy in the form of a “what’s the title” question she said: “I read a book which I loved, but silly me cannot remember the author or the name and it is a series. It is about a woman who works as a cater decorating cakes. She was mugged years ago with your ex-finance and they messed up her leg pretty badly and she walks with a limp of sort. She meets a guy which I think his name is Sloane and he promises he will make her strong and not be afraid and takes her to his gym.” and Jennifer answered: “ know, great book. plus one chronicles by jennifer lyon. book 3 coming soon.” Definitely sounds up my alley, and this book (#1) is SUPER bargain-priced!
- Possession (The Plus One Chronicles) by Jennifer Lyon <— and here’s book #2 and lots of great reviews!!
- Unspoken (The Woodlands #2) by Jen Frederick <— Underground MMA fighter/Marine, bad boy and girl with a “rumored” bad reputation in College. She’s bullied. They become friends… I just finished this one and I liked it! I wasn’t swept away for some reason (between 3.5 to 4 stars for me), but overall it’s solid, good writing and sexy, and he’s deliciously bossy! Forces her to let him sleep over (on her couch ) and everything, when she’s sad. Awwwww, right? Could it be that I was just still tooo overwrought with “A Little Too Far”, still? Will be reviewing this weekend.
- Undeclared (The Woodlands #1) by Jen Frederick <— And here’s book #1 (I didn’t realize I skipped right to #2 – but it read just fine as a standalone). This one is also about a Marine/UFC fighter (Noah), and I got to know him well in #2, so I’m curious about his book… <—- Ohhhhhhh right I remember checking this one out… girl wrote and fell in love with a Marine she never met, but… “But when his deployment ended, so did the letters.” Right right right!!!

- Conflicted (Battlescars III) by Sophie Monroe <— Tricia just found out this one had a price drop!
- A Shade Of Vampire by Bella Forrest <— a few books already out in this series and this one (book #1) is super-bargain priced. And this part of the synopsis has me intrigued (looks like it had me intrigued awhile ago, ’cause I have this book. I should get on it… ): “She wakes here as a slave, a captive in chains. Sofia’s life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn when she is the one selected out of hundreds of girls to join the harem of Derek Novak, the dark royal Prince. Despite his addiction to power and obsessive thirst for her blood, Sofia soon realizes that the safest place on the island is within his quarters, and she must do all within her power to win him over if she is to survive even one more night.”

If you were around last night, maybe you caught a little of our group read (sorry, Maryse we were on our group site but in the middle we somehow ended up reading…and ranting…here).

- His Risk to Take (Entangled Ever After) by Tessa Bailey <— I’m SO reading this one this weekend. This is book #2 after that cop-book I read last weekend that I loved sooooo much. And now that Jenny said this, I’m about to start it right after this post! “Really enjoyed Protecting what’s his but LOVED His Risk to Take… just started Officer off Limits, so yet to see where that one ranks but His Risk to Take is favorite so far “
- Rock and Roll Never Forgets (The Rock and Roll Trilogy) by Barbara Stewart <— okay this is back on the list and over the course of the last few months I’ve received a ton of adamant recommendations for it. I wonder why I haven’t read it yet, ’cause I DO have it! I mean, after THIS recommendation, I must be missing out… Rachel: “I have to tell you about my latest book that I just read. I want to shout it from the rooftops on how good it is. ‘Rock & Roll never forgets’. Omg, what a book! It has got to be one of my best reads this year + I read daily so you can imagine how good it is … Its wow, superb, amazing! It is such an emotional rollercoaster + a difficult ride.

One can only offer her tonight and the other forever, but can Kylie settle for just one man, or can she have her cake and eat it too?” Fun!!
- Beg Tease Submit – Sequence One (Songs of Submission) by CD Reiss <— It looks like the first three books in the Songs of Submission series (by CD Reiss) is bundled at a SUPER-LOW bargain price right now… (says it ends yesterday but it’s still on right now..). Many of our fellow readers LOVE this series and Janet says: ”This is more of a serial or installment series-I am not a fan of serials, but I got hooked on this one after reading the first one which was free. It’s really well written. … I really do recommend it” and Sandra agrees: “It is SOOOO good.”
