- Book Review – Defying the Odds - 4.5 stars
- Book Review – Star Crossed (Battered Hearts 2) - 4 stars
- Book Review – Crossing the Line - 4.5 stars
Wow… we have quite a few unique (or at least… exciting-sounding) premises today! A virgin that sells it to the highest bidder, another one about a family debt that she must repay (by becoming his, on his 29th birthday), a lead-prisoner that runs the show, and takes the warden’s daughter while she’s visiting the prison (eeeep!!), a stripper paying her way through college, until… “there’s one other person who knows both the quiet, antisocial Hannah and the sensual, shameless Alicia.” <— HER TEACHER! Oh! And one about a girl getting over her cheating ex, accidentally uncovers something that puts her on a mob hit-list and the only cop who’ll help her is… her cheating ex! <— YIKES!
Plus! A bunch of dark reads, rock star reads, biker reads… and some super-angsty sounding, trouble-making love triangles. You know. Right up our book-alley.
P.S. —> I’m still adding to this list as we speak. There’ve been LOTS of new releases over the last few days that look awesome! (I noted a bunch of ‘em below + SO many releasing on sale).
