<— LIVE! This one, and SO many others that are right up our alley. Authors near and dear to our reading-hearts… our very favorite ones are BACK this week. Abbi Glines’ Until Friday Night (HOLY MOLY the blurb on this one made my heart ache!!! This sounds so different for this author… deep and poignant sounding), Tracey Garvis-Graves’ Heart-Shaped Hack (I LOVE THIS AUTHOR!! Everything I’ve read from her, very adult-contemporary awesome!), Emma Chase’s Sustained (made me awwwwwww when I read this blurb… he helps take care of orphans), Shay Savage’s Released (best male POV-writer!!), C.D. Reiss’ Rule (mafia romance!!), Tijan’s Fallen Crest University (need I even expand? LOL!!! She’s HUGE in our crew), the list goes on and on, and I think we’ll be reading to our hearts delight this week!

P.S. ABOUT TIJAN’S Fallen Crest Series (I love Tijan just ’cause she’s plain  awesome in real life, AND ’cause so many here LOVE her books) BUT! I can’t answer the first question however (since I still need to read this series), however… our crew CAN!!!:

Allison: Confession time . . . I see FCU and read the blurb and just think, “Ugh. High School.”  But then I read the way you guys comment and talk about the books and wonder “WTH am I missing?”So please someone tell me . . . WTH am I missing?

Ela: *whispering to Allison* I feel the same……..shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Fabi: The story is so much more intense than what you would think of as high school angst. I would even call it dark in some respects.

Tessa: What are you missing? Just to get an idea, I’m at 90% at typing because the tummy twists got too much and I had to step away before I threw my tablet in anger and fear. I literally have my hands clenched and want to scream and hit something.

Tessa: And done. *sighs* I want more! I know, I’ll get more (Logan’s book, yeah!) but I want more now!

Amy: Oh Ela and Allison…you are missing SO much if you haven’t read the Fallen Crest series. If not for the high school references in the first few books, you would think they were college age. The characters may be in high school but I would NOT classify it as YA, especially with the sexy times. To me, FCH is one of those series that may not sound like much from the blurbs or our gushing but has to be experienced to understand the appeal. And they read FAST! I keep staring ambivalently at FCU on my iPad, wanting to dive in yet knowing that when it’s over then that’s it and I’ll have to wait for the next one and I’ll be in a funk. *sigh* I’m so glad you ladies understand that feeling. ;)

Ela: Oh Amy! LOL You have re-assured me *high five* *fist bump*…..

Tessa: I can’t say I’m in a funk yet. I’m still saying “Oh, my, GOD!” out loud a lot. I will be though. Ela,

Amy: See?? SEE?!? *points at Tessa* Look how quickly she finished it! I don’t want it to be over that fast but I know it will ’cause it’s nearly impossible to set it down once you start it.

Ready? Just take a look at these!

P.S. Let me know if I’m missing any or if you loved any (from this list or elsewhere).

CONTEMPORARY

  1. Fallen Crest University (Fallen Crest Series Book 5) by Tijan <— TIJAN ALERT!!! And I can’t even read the blurb ’cause I have to start the series first and it’s been on my TBR list for a few years and EVERYONE I know seems to love it, especially Tessa who has thrown enough peanuts at me for not reading it that I could eat peanut butter for a few years!

Confession time . . . I see FCU and read the blurb and just think, “Ugh. High School.”

But then I read the way you guys comment and talk about the books and wonder “WTH am I missing?”

So please someone tell me . . . WTH am I missing?

Ela August 25, 2015 at 11:30 AM

*whispering to Allison* I feel the same……..shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Ela August 25, 2015 at 11:31 AM

MARYSE WHAT A GREAT LIST! AND LOOK AT ALL THOSE PRECIOUSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!

Fabi August 25, 2015 at 11:50 AM

FCH HS
The story is so much more intense than what you would think of as high school angst. I would even call it dark in some respects.

Anne August 25, 2015 at 11:53 AM

Great list Maryse! I started Heart-Shaped Hack last night and really liking it so far. Hopefully this book will end my reading slump.

Also got Sustained by Emma Chase. I really liked the first one in the series so excited about this one.

I really wish I could find a similar book to The Golden Dynasty. It doesn’t have to be a fantasy romance but one with a similar feel. I really loved that book so much and miss what it made me feel :(

Tessa August 25, 2015 at 12:00 PM

What are you missing? Just to get an idea, I’m at 90% at typing because the tummy twists got too much and I had to step away before I threw my tablet in anger and fear. I literally have my hands clenched and want to scream and hit something.

Tessa August 25, 2015 at 12:20 PM

And done. *sighs* I want more! I know, I’ll get more (Logan’s book, yeah!) but I want more now!

Amy August 25, 2015 at 12:22 PM

Oh Ela and Allison…you are missing SO much if you haven’t read the Fallen Crest series. If not for the high school references in the first few books, you would think they were college age. The characters may be in high school but I would NOT classify it as YA, especially with the sexy times. To me, FCH is one of those series that may not sound like much from the blurbs or our gushing but has to be experienced to understand the appeal. And they read FAST!

I keep staring ambivalently at FCU on my iPad, wanting to dive in yet knowing that when it’s over then that’s it and I’ll have to wait for the next one and I’ll be in a funk. *sigh* I’m so glad you ladies understand that feeling. ;)

Ela August 25, 2015 at 12:30 PM

Oh Amy! LOL You have re-assured me *high five* *fist bump*…..

I kinda got myself in a PNR pickle *shrugs* I can’t seem to stop reading Merry Gentry series, I’m on book 3.

Oh and Amy, I know the feeling of having a book but not wanting to read it cause you’re afraid, I have 2 that I keep looking at but that is all: the latest Charley Davidson (cause book 9 is not out until Jan) and the latest Fever book (no clue why, I think Iced turned me off).

Tessa August 25, 2015 at 12:37 PM

I can’t say I’m in a funk yet. I’m still saying “Oh, my, GOD!” out loud a lot. I will be though. Ela, I’m doing the same thing with the Charley Davidson series. The way the last one ended, I’m scared. I haven’t even bought it yet, and I love her books.

Amy August 25, 2015 at 12:38 PM

See?? SEE?!? *points at Tessa* Look how quickly she finished it! I don’t want it to be over that fast but I know it will ’cause it’s nearly impossible to set it down once you start it.

Anne, you should try out Warprize…for me it was kind of a lighter version of GD but still really, really good!

Ela, there are some on here who were *really* not happy with Iced and/or Burned…I’ve decided to leave well enough alone and pretend Shadowfever was the end of the series. For now at least. ;)

Amy August 25, 2015 at 12:43 PM

Tessa, does FCU wrap things up for Mason and Sam? ‘Cause I’m going to miss those two if so…

Sustained sounds sooooo sweet! And I think I need that after finishing a book yesterday that left me in a p!ssy-a$$ mood. She walked in on him in THEIR bed with another woman yet she went back to him in the end and even shouldered some of the blame because she had been distant due to work, not being able to conceive, IVF, etc. Um, NO. Y’all know how I feel about those books. *frowns with arms crossed*

Tessa August 25, 2015 at 12:47 PM

Seriously? She thinks it’s her fault? Um… Nope. Hate those books.

Technically it took me longer to read it, because, um… I fell asleep reading it. Though, in my defense, I do have to get up daily at six, so… sleep! Sam and Mason get two more books. Tijan didn’t want to let them go, I guess. :) OMG, at the end is a sneak peak at Logan’s book. It’s told from the new heroine’s POV, and she’s awesome for him. I was grinning just from the three pages. She sounds kind of nuts.

Anne August 25, 2015 at 12:50 PM

Amy so many people have rec’d Warprize that I think I really need to read it :) Oh no what book was that? I can’t believe she went back to him and shouldered some of the blame! Just no!

Anne August 25, 2015 at 12:51 PM

I really need to read the FCH series so I can join the fun.

Jean August 25, 2015 at 12:57 PM

Tessa, I knew you’d be finished by now! I’m excited and scared. Starting tonight! Happy to hear there will be two more books for Mason, but LOGAN IS NEXT!! Yay me! I can’t wait to see what kind of heroine will finally capture his heart (it could have been me…lol)!

Until Friday Night sounds great, but $10.99? WTH? And Sustained….. $7.99? Some of these more popular authors are seriously overcharging us for their ebooks! Blah!

Jean August 25, 2015 at 12:58 PM

Amy, what book was that…..that’s total BS!

Jean August 25, 2015 at 1:05 PM

Oh I just realized I had received Blurred Lines as an ARC and haven’t read it yet….whoops my bad….

Diane M August 25, 2015 at 1:17 PM

Ela I’m w/ you on Charley Davidson!

I finished The Good Girl yesterday and really liked it, I think Stockholm Syndrome is definitely catnip for me.

Paula August 25, 2015 at 1:37 PM

I am working my way through the Sacred Hearts MC books and am rather enjoying them!
Amy – I keep looking at FCU and thinking if I read it it will then be gone…and I love the FC world!
So think I will finish off the MC series first, 2 books to go and the last out in September. Then maybe read the new Mariana Zapata book, coz if I read FCU it will be over and I will have to wait for the next one…or maybe I will read it next or I have the the last two of Shay Savage’s Caged series….soooo many great books and sooooo little time!

Ela August 25, 2015 at 1:46 PM

Amy I am sooooooooooooo happy I’m not the only one, hence haven’t picked up Burned :(

Oh Charley and Reyes are my catnip but not as much as Syn and Ryder, very close!!!!! It’s so hard to choose sometimes between the son of the devil and The Faery!!!!! I will not give away his title cause that’s a total spoiler for those who haven’t read AND MUST READ!!!!!!!!!

And yes what is that book that SHE FORGAVE HIM AND SH*T????

Jean August 25, 2015 at 1:49 PM

But Paula, Tessa said Logan’s book is next and there will be 2 more books for Mason! It’s not over until the fat lady sings! Lol!

fabi August 25, 2015 at 1:50 PM

Tessa, I thought this book was Logan’s. So not ’till next one huh? :-( I might have to squirrel this one for the weekend so I can read it uninterrupted.

Amy August 25, 2015 at 2:17 PM

Okay, I’ll post the link for those of you wanting to AVOID the book. That being said, y’all know how I don’t like giving spoilers (I’m twitching just thinking about posting this) and I *despise* untagged spoilers so…

****SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!**** Don’t click if you don’t want a spoiler!!!
https://www.amazon.com/gp/kindle/kcp/tos.html#stos-bookmark

It was about lost love and a second chance and actually turned out to be a bit of a mind screw near the end (which I was loving!) and thennnnnnn she had to go and make that decision. *sigh*

Tessa August 25, 2015 at 2:18 PM

Yeah. Logan is featured majorly. I just wanted to hug him.

Tessa August 25, 2015 at 2:22 PM

Amy, that’s a link to the kindle store.

Amy August 25, 2015 at 2:27 PM

Oh, I’m awesome. *snort*

Let’s try this since the other links show the actual title in the link itself…
Again, SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!

Amy August 25, 2015 at 2:40 PM

You know what, I really feel I need to say this. I do not mean any offense to anyone who has been in that situation and has chosen to forgive and work things out. No one has the right to try and sway another person on whether they should or should not take their spouse or significant other back after infidelity. That is between the couple and the couple alone. My strong feelings I keep vocalizing against the woman taking the man back after he has cheated is IN BOOKS.

Tumbling down off my soapbox now…

Ela August 25, 2015 at 2:41 PM

I actually read that book and gave it 4 stars?!?!?

Jean August 25, 2015 at 2:47 PM

I get it Amy, only in books. Although my Italian side would never let me forgive something like that, even in real life! Especially if it happened in MY BED! No!

Awww Tessa, does Logan need hugging *pushing Tessa out of the way*……I’ll take care of that! Lol!

Amy August 25, 2015 at 2:54 PM

Ela, remember when it turned into the whole mind-messery thing? I had a bit of a lump in my throat when all of that happened.

Oh no Jean, you’ve done it now… *sits back smirking and waits for fireworks*

Tessa August 25, 2015 at 2:54 PM

Lol Jean! That’s not hugging you’re doing, that’s groping!

Ela, proof again we all have our own tastes. :-)

Tessa August 25, 2015 at 2:56 PM

*thinks* Nope, no fireworks. Knowing Logan, he’d prefer the groping.

Anne August 25, 2015 at 3:02 PM

Just finished Heart-Shaped Hack and really liked it! There’s a little bit of mystery and angst but no unnecessary drama which I always appreciate. Ian and Kate were great together and their relationship was beautiful. There’s going to be a second book but there’s no CH in this first one. A 4.25/5 for me.

I think I am going to read When a Scot Ties the Knot by Tessa Dare next.

Jean August 25, 2015 at 3:03 PM

Yep, you’re right, groping! Lol! I’ll let you give him one hug, but that’s it!

Jean August 25, 2015 at 3:03 PM

Can’t wait to start tonight now and have Logan back in my life!

Amy August 25, 2015 at 3:06 PM

LOL!! Logan and groping are synonymous. :P

Amy August 25, 2015 at 3:07 PM

*chews lip and continues eyeballing FCU*

Ela August 25, 2015 at 3:11 PM

Amy….LMAO….just because I gave it 4 stars doesn’t mean I remember what I read. Let me read some spoiler reviews cause now I am very curious how or why I gave it 4 stars.

Tessa August 25, 2015 at 3:12 PM

*chants quietly* Read it, read it! Alright, mostly I went nuts as I was reading it and want to know if I’m just insane or if it really was that tense.

*goes and gives Logan a platonic hug*

fabi August 25, 2015 at 3:17 PM

stop it stop it stop it

I want to save FCU for my special weekend read and you guys are killing me.

—reminds me of that song “killing me softly with his words…”. Was it Stevie Nicks?

Amy August 25, 2015 at 3:22 PM

*snickers while Logan ‘platonically’ hugs Tessa and cops a feel*

Jean August 25, 2015 at 3:23 PM

Haha, yes that would be so Logan to cop a feel!

Tessa August 25, 2015 at 3:31 PM

ROFL. He so would too! *rubs backside*

Killing me Softly is by Roberta Flack? (Spelling) or Fugees. I like the Fugees version. :-P

Lauren August 25, 2015 at 3:53 PM

Maryse, The Skeleton King (Dartmoor Book 3) by Lauren Gilley is up for pre-order….comes out Sept. 15. Didn’t you review book 1 recently?

Ela August 25, 2015 at 3:59 PM

YES!!!!!!!!!! WALSH’S BOOK!!!!!

Grey August 25, 2015 at 4:45 PM

I havent read any of this column yet…but Tessa…I just started FCH, in your honor!

Amy August 25, 2015 at 5:44 PM

Yay!! Grey is in for some awesomeness!!! :D

Cheryl August 25, 2015 at 5:56 PM

Blurred Lines sounds good, but I keep thinking I read something like it as a fanfiction. Also Sustained and Overruled and Anything But Broken and Heart Shaped Hack- what is it about covers that sometimes are what really draw me to the book??).

MichelleS August 25, 2015 at 6:42 PM

Anne: “I really wish I could find a similar book to The Golden Dynasty”…. have you ever read Lord of the Isles, by Debbie Mazzuca? Same “feel” as GD. She is from our time and gets thrown back in time (not alternate universe, but same idea). Just enough paranormal and a ton of hot action. Loved it.

MichelleS August 25, 2015 at 6:47 PM

I’m reading Arsen, because I couldn’t remember anything about it and people were insisting it was awesome! So now that I am reading it it is coming back to me. Still can’t remember everything that happens, but at least I know I don’t have full blown Dementia yet.

Tessa August 25, 2015 at 6:48 PM

Yeah, Grey! I hope you like it. :)

Tessa August 25, 2015 at 6:50 PM

A Twist of Fate (The Lexi Series Book 1) by T Gephart is free. :)

Maryse August 25, 2015 at 6:55 PM

Ohhhhh Diane!!??

The Good Girl has Stockholm syndrome? That’s catnip to me too, for some reason…

I mean… I mean… you know. How can you not connect with someone that is “Do or die”? you know?

Maryse August 25, 2015 at 6:56 PM

LOL!!!! MichelleS!!!!!!!! :P

Maryse August 25, 2015 at 6:58 PM

oooooooh Lauren YES!!!

I had no idea. YAY! Okay I have to update the reading order list and the book release page…

Maryse August 25, 2015 at 7:00 PM

fabi…

have you not read FCH at al yet?

‘Cause WE WILL SO MARATHON READ IT together if you want… i’m game when you are.

Anne August 25, 2015 at 7:05 PM

MichelleS thanks for the rec! I haven’t read or heard of that book before. Going to start it tonight :D

bev August 25, 2015 at 7:07 PM

I really do need to catch up on the FCH series.
You know what i really wanted the other day is a Mercy Thompson book.

Fabi & Tessa love that song.

bev August 25, 2015 at 7:08 PM

Maryse???? Whoa!!!

bev August 25, 2015 at 7:09 PM

Amy, catch Tessa. Lol

bev August 25, 2015 at 7:39 PM

*looks around for EVERYONE*

OK, Fabi has read up to this new one. And loved them, I believe.
Maryse, think how Happy you’ll make them all. And Ela just started.
Plus, I’ll never call you Maurice again…….maybe a space cowboy though.;-)

Tessa August 25, 2015 at 8:59 PM

Uh… *blinks in shock* Grey just started it. I persuaded sweetly (and in no way nagging), Fabi to read it a few months ago. She is just going to marathon the last one.

Bev, what song?

bev August 25, 2015 at 9:38 PM

Tessa, Killing Me Softly.:-)

Tessa August 25, 2015 at 9:40 PM

:) See what book fog will do to you. It makes you forget everything.

bev August 25, 2015 at 10:18 PM

Oh, its Grey that’s reading it.

Grey August 25, 2015 at 11:25 PM

Correction… it’s Grey that just *finished* it. Well, the Fallen Crest High anyway. Let me just say, Fabi, Tessa… I totally get it now. *squee*

Logan, Mason… oh yes, I’m a big fan of the Kade brothers.

Tessa August 25, 2015 at 11:41 PM

*biggest grin ever*

Amy August 26, 2015 at 12:30 AM

*skips around while tossing FCH peanuts in the air*

Amy August 26, 2015 at 12:31 AM

*grabs and tackles Tessa*

I got her Bev!!! Better late than never!! :P

Tessa August 26, 2015 at 12:40 AM

*falls flat from the tackle* *blinks* She liked it! You hear that Amy? She liked it! She hasn’t said who she likes most, but she liked it!

Amy August 26, 2015 at 12:55 AM

I know, I know!!!! *jumps with Tessa and squeals*

Laura August 26, 2015 at 2:13 AM

Oh crap I haven’t had time to read FCU yet don’t tell me!!! And you all STILL owe me for that sneaky peanut! Is Nate in it?! Has he stopped being stupid?! Don’t tell me!!! I don’t know if you all know but if anyone likes Nicole jacquelyns craving constellations series she has a new book out craving trix I just read it and it was so good as usual *sigh*

Lisa August 26, 2015 at 4:53 AM

Great list Maryse. Heart Shaped Hack, Ally Hughes Has Sex Sometimes, Play for Me & 3 Seconds all locked and loaded.
Cant bring myself to load up Sustained cos I’m still angry *gggrrrrr* about stupid Stanton in the first book which was a dnf for me….and I never ever dnf.
AND I have avoided FCH series because I thought it sounded a bit too YA but after reading all the recommendations here I think I need to reconsider. Mmmmmm.

Lisa August 26, 2015 at 4:58 AM

Oh..damn Amy. I have that book tbr. And I really cant deal with situations where there’s hurtful cheating in books…and in HER bed!! And shes made to feel partly responsible!!! NO. Just no.

bev August 26, 2015 at 7:15 AM

Ladies do not be afraid of YA. I wouldn’t classify FCH as that anyway.
But E&P and Harry Potter? These are AMAZING(!) stories and characters that you are missing out on. If I could go back and read HP….. I remember when those books release days were beating opening weekends at the box office. And I’ll say kicks Twilight’s a$$ when it comes to world building, writing, and characters. And humor! I will say they get more grown up and darker as the books go on. This series left me ugly crying a few times. Not all about romance but there. The friendships though, perfect.

MichelleS August 26, 2015 at 7:43 AM

FCH – “what am I missing?” – um… Mason and Logan? It doesn’t read like a YA, except that it takes place in High School. That part worried me too, and I am not a huge fan of stories about people that much younger than me – but I did like FCH!!!

MichelleS August 26, 2015 at 7:45 AM

I NEVER pictured Mason as a High School boy, did anyone else? He was just instantly a man in my mind’s eye (and my smutty head).

Jean August 26, 2015 at 7:48 AM

FCU has reaffirmed my love for Logan…..sigh….not done yet, but I get the book fog Tessa!

Lisa August 26, 2015 at 7:50 AM

Ok. Convinced. FCH.
I’m not against YA in general Bev…..think it was just the high school setting that had me hesitating.

Ela August 26, 2015 at 9:01 AM

I am still at my Merry Gentry PNR marathon, book 4. Once I’m done it will be a pickle between CD Reiss Series and FCH :)

Tessa August 26, 2015 at 9:17 AM

*jumps and squees with Amy* *points to Lisa’s comment* *squees again*
MichelleS, you think he would have been a Book husband if I pictured a teenager? Pfft. That man is smexy from the word go.
See why I wanted to hug Logan, Jean? *sighs*

Amy August 26, 2015 at 10:32 AM

“He was just instantly a man in my mind’s eye (and my smutty head).”

Here’s to you, Mrs. Robinson. *lifts martini glass to MichelleS* :P

Amy August 26, 2015 at 10:42 AM

*grabs Tessa* And did you see Ela’s comment?? She’s considering FCH as well!!! *continues jumping and squeeing*

Ela, are you talking about CD Reiss’ Submission series or Corruption series? I’ve read the Submission series, and I really liked it but I LOVED the drama of FCH. I don’t remember a whole lot about the story line of the Submission series other than sex, sex and more sex (not a bad thing :P ). But I DO remember sooooooo much about the FCH series, which has the added bonus of some great sexy times. So obviously you know where my vote lies. :D

Jean August 26, 2015 at 10:59 AM

I read the Submission series too….nope can’t remember much. My vote is for FCH! Amy, did you start FCU…..ahhh my Logan!

Ela August 26, 2015 at 11:29 AM

The Corruption Series. I read her Submission series and really liked and nope don’t remember much *shocker*!!!!!!!! All these forbidden billionaires tend to get blurry in my head. I do however remember Christian, Gideon, and Jesse oh and Ethan, can’t forget Ethan, other than these hunks I have little memory for the billionaires.

Ladies? Anyone else like me? Who do you remember and even some of the story???

Ela August 26, 2015 at 11:30 AM

And here’s to you, Mrs. Robinson,
Jesus loves you more than you will know.
God bless you, please Mrs. Robinson.
Heaven holds a place for those who pray,
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

We’d like to know a little bit about you for our files
We’d like to help you learn to help yourself.
Look around you all you see are sympathetic eyes,
Stroll around the grounds until you feel at home.

And here’s to you, Mrs. Robinson,
Jesus loves you more than you will know.
God bless you, please, Mrs. Robinson.
Heaven holds a place for those who pray,
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

Hide it in the hiding place where no one ever goes.
Put it in your pantry with your cupcakes.
It’s a little secret just the Robinson’s affair.
Most of all you’ve got to hide it from the kids.

Koo-koo-ka-choo, Mrs. Robinson,
Jesus loves you more than you will know.
God bless you, please, Mrs. Robinson.
Heaven holds a place for those who pray,
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

Sitting on a sofa on a Sunday afternoon.
Going to the candidates’ debate.
Laugh about it, shout about it
When you’ve got to choose
Every way you look at this you lose.

Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio,
Our nation turns its lonely eyes to you.
What’s that you say, Mrs. Robinson.
Jolting Joe has left and gone away,
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

Amy August 26, 2015 at 11:33 AM

Yep Jean, I started it!! Although I did make the mistake of thinking I could just take a quick peek at the beginning before starting my work, and now I’m all antsy to get back to it.

Mason has my heart but I love Logan as well, just in a guy friend kind of way. That boy…it wouldn’t be the same without him. I stopped right after Sam’s toast in the basement: “To f***ing family!” Logan’s response to her and Mason: “In the literal sense for you two.” LOL!!!!

Amy August 26, 2015 at 11:40 AM

*lifts martini glass to Ela* ;)

Jean August 26, 2015 at 12:22 PM

Haha! I love Logan’s sarcastic remarks! Yep, once I started couldn’t put it down and now stupid work is getting in my way! Logan is waiting for me!

Jean August 26, 2015 at 12:28 PM

Ela, I love Jesse Ward, and of course remember Christian, Ethan, Gideon, James Cavendish, and their stories. Yep, all others and their stories are a total blur!

Tessa August 26, 2015 at 12:30 PM

*snickers* No, it wouldn’t be half as good without Logan. I love the Loganisms, especially Mason yelling at him to stop with the hashtags.

I’m the same, but in a different way. I’ll remember a story, but no idea what book that was or the characters names. I sear, re-reading Mighty Storm, I remembered the story, but was like, oh, um… so that was this book?

Jean August 26, 2015 at 12:38 PM

The only reason I remember names is because I type them up in my list. Sometimes that helps me remember the story. Haha!

By the way guys, I finished All of Me by Gina Sorelle yesterday and I absolutely loved it! There were some editing issues but not enough to take away from the story. This heroine, Stella, was so strong, sassy, upfront, and completely loveable! And her sisters were all characters in their own right! Highly recommend!

Tessa August 26, 2015 at 12:41 PM

sear? how did mean become sear?

Tessa August 26, 2015 at 12:43 PM

Oh, a lot of people were looking at that one. Good secondary though? Yeah!

A list, huh? I could try that. I can’t commit to anything. Heck, I wanted Goodreads to remind me by my review, and I couldn’t commit to putting that much info in a review. :/

Amy August 26, 2015 at 12:54 PM

I think I’ve mentioned Every Which Way by Calia Read, but has anyone ever read it besides me? It’s been a while since I read it, but I DO remember that Thayer reminded me a lot of Mason…or maybe Mason reminded me of Thayer. *scratches head* I can’t remember which one I read first.

It involves two brothers and an h (who I had a total girl crush on) but not with the same dynamics as the Mason-Sam-Logan relationship. It *seems* like a love triangle, but Severine (the h) is not bed hopping between the two brothers. So for anyone who doesn’t care for cheating books, you’re safe with this one. I have to say though that the author pulled the rug out from under me at one point…that’s all I’m sayin’. ;)

Jean August 26, 2015 at 12:59 PM

Yes Tessa, my lists have lists! Lol! I always think I can look at my GR reviews for reminders too, but sometimes I am so vague so as not to ruin anything for anyone else that I can’t even figure out what it was about! Then I end up reading others reviews to refresh my memory! It’s a vicious cycle!

Jean August 26, 2015 at 1:00 PM

Oh and Tijan’s warning at the beginning of the book of something happening near the end makes me sooooo nervous!

Amy August 26, 2015 at 1:11 PM

Whoa, whoa, whoa…what warning?

*goes to check FCU*

Tessa August 26, 2015 at 1:12 PM

List of lists. Oh boy. I know I can’t commit to that.

Amy, it’s paperback only, used only. That’s why no one has read it.

Amy August 26, 2015 at 1:13 PM

Uhhhhh, it better have been a GOOD warning. :? Then again, Tessa seems to be okay so that’s a good sign.

Tessa August 26, 2015 at 1:15 PM

The warning was a surprise at the end. :) Though, of course, not revealing anything about the book. (The hashtag remark doesn’t count!)

Amy August 26, 2015 at 1:16 PM

WHAT?!? But…but…I have it on my Kindle app as well as the next two books in the series…what happened?

Jean August 26, 2015 at 1:30 PM

In the author’s Dedication, “There’s a bit of a surprise for you guys at the end, so be warned!”

Yep, Tessa seems to have handled it ok so that makes me feel better!

Niki August 26, 2015 at 1:33 PM

Amy I read that one!!! I gave it four stars on Goodreads so I must have liked it ;) I have the second too but don’t think I’ve read it…

Cheryl August 26, 2015 at 3:30 PM

All these comments about Fallen Crest, has me curious to read it, but I have one question- it seems like it is not finished and it’s 5 books?? Is that right?

Cheryl August 26, 2015 at 3:30 PM

Jean I agree about All of Me. Really liked it and the strong h, although she did bug me somewhat when she would ask Nathan personal questions, then tell him it’s ok you don’t have to answer right now and then in the next breath would be bugging him to tell her everything!!

I also just finished reading Blurred Lines. Loved it. Sweet, minimal not drawn out angst of best friends to lovers. Just wished the ending was a little more drawn out. *sigh* Now what to read next…

Cheryl August 26, 2015 at 3:32 PM

Lisa, I was debating on reading Overruled or Sustained. So you’re one of the one’s in Maryse’s comment who hated on the H? That bad?

Jean August 26, 2015 at 3:43 PM

Thanks for the feedback on Blurred Lines Cheryl!

Yeah, Stella could be persistent, but I loved it!

Avoiding Overruled because of the comments I’ve seen, but Sustained looks soooo good!

Tessa August 26, 2015 at 3:51 PM

Cheryl, yes. It’s five books, with two more to go. They don’t end on a major CH, as you know Amy would be screaming at us. *grins*

Amy August 26, 2015 at 5:14 PM

Niki…I liked the second one as well, even though it was about someone I ended up really not liking in the first book. That character was redeemed though. ;)

Cheryl…you read Pure Abandon, didn’t you? I couldn’t remember if it was a standalone in a series or if their was a CH.

Amy August 26, 2015 at 5:16 PM

And Tessa is right, I would be freaking out if there were CH’s in the FCH series!! Things are always wrapped up one way or another by the end of each book with just a hint as to what will be happening in the next book. In other words, they are written PERFECTLY for those of us who don’t like CH’s! :D

Grey August 26, 2015 at 5:25 PM

Fallen Crest High, Fallen Crest Family & so far half of Fallen Crest Public in the last 24 hours… Yep, you guessed it, I haven’t done a blessed thing but read. Its beautiful really.

Yeah…other than mentions of it, it totally doesn’t read like a YA series. Its hot…lmao!

Mason…Logan… I wouldn’t kick either of them from my bed. *um, crickets* if I weren’t married, and they were there…*sheepish grin*

Seriously if you haven’t…read this series…it’s breaking me out of my book funk!

Anne August 26, 2015 at 5:26 PM

MichelleS I finished Lord of the Isles and really liked it!! Thanks for the rec *big hugs*

I think my next read is going to be FCH :)

Anne August 26, 2015 at 5:28 PM

Grey know I need to read it! Starting Fallen Crest High tonight :D

Jean August 26, 2015 at 5:44 PM

Grey, what about Mason, the short novella? Tessa will tell you what order to read it…..I read it first since I downloaded the series as a bundle and it was first, but apparently it would have had a bigger impact had I waited to read it. Tessa?

Lisa August 26, 2015 at 6:14 PM

Cheryl don’t let me put you off. I loved her Tangled series but I couldn’t over look what I saw as cheating in overruled. The H for me was a bit of a dirtbag. I gave it 3 good attempts but gave up when I started to really dislike the h too.

BUT others loved it.

Tessa August 26, 2015 at 6:36 PM

Mason would be best to read after the third one. :)

*goes off to scream happily*

Tessa August 26, 2015 at 6:39 PM

Hey, on the latest shortcuts to new books, has anyone else been eyeing The Affiliate? I’ve already pre-ordered it. The blurb looks intriguing and it’s by KA Linde.

Amy August 26, 2015 at 6:59 PM

I agree on the Mason novella being read later on…you definitely want to get to know Mason and Logan through Sam’s eyes first. ;)

Lisa August 26, 2015 at 7:00 PM

Ela I have trouble remembering all of the characters too. If their story sticks with me and I remember all the details I consider ir a fave. Billionaires who I will never forget…Jesse from This Man. Christian cos he was the original. Gideon too. Malcolm Saint from Manwhore. All the others are a blurry blend of alpha hotness!!

MichelleS August 26, 2015 at 7:09 PM

I tend to remember the hot alpha types from PNR and UF much more often than the regular guys, and definitely more than billionaires etc. They have cool names, and something distinctive usually (a power or some back story) that just sticks with me. The rest are a huge blur. Once in a while a normal guy stand out, like Tack or Tate or someone like that.

I am thinking that Maryse is going to start FCH soon. It’s just in the air. Just so you know, Maryse, you can have Mason, ’cause Logan is mine.

bev August 26, 2015 at 7:15 PM

I have Overruled. It was just on sale. Very curious because of the mixed reviews on it. Same hate him and some like him.

Lisa M August 26, 2015 at 7:16 PM

Just finished FCU!!! Loved it!!! Started it last night and read all day today in between work etc!! Hate it when stuff gets in the way of my books!!!! Tessa, I felt the same way you did ready to throw something but for me never my iphone!! That’s where I read my books these days. Always have my phone with me and can read whenever I can!! Grey, I love those days when you can read book after book in a series!!! So excited there’s more books to come in the series and love that we are not left with a CH!! Back to The Rocker that Holds me series!!!

bev August 26, 2015 at 7:19 PM

Jean& Cheryl, I love the part towards the end. With the whole picture on the fridge and money, lol. You get a nice glimpse into their life in the second book. But that h drove me a little nuts, though she definitely has her reasons for her behavior. I liked it but not as much as the first one.

bev August 26, 2015 at 7:20 PM

Fingers crossed Tessa that Maryse is reading FCH.

Tessa August 26, 2015 at 7:37 PM

*eyes narrowed* Maryse can have Mason? My Mason? I like the trend that’s been going. You all like Logan, remember? Right now, I only have to compete with Amy over Mason.

Bev… *crosses fingers* Lisa, that’s why I kept typing instead. The tension was wild.

bev August 26, 2015 at 7:40 PM

DO NOT CLICK IF NOT CAUGHT UP ON THE FEVER SERIES!!
A blurb for the new book. I have to say I’m not excited by this blurb.
http://www.heroesandheartbreakers.com/blogs/2015/08/romance-news-roundup-km-monings-feverborn-details

Tessa August 26, 2015 at 7:44 PM

Who’s Jada? I mean, all excitement or hate aside, I have to re-read Burned now, because I really don’t remember a Jada.

MichelleS August 26, 2015 at 7:47 PM

Tesaa ; this may be a SPOILER if you haven’t read Fever……. Jada is………… skip this part of you are not caught up…. lalalalalalala……..
(Dani).

I’m not excited either. Still mad about Burned. I want Iced and Dani back.

bev August 26, 2015 at 7:48 PM

Tessa, she is one of the reasons I disliked the book. Call foul on her.
She and *spoiler* have some things in common.

bev August 26, 2015 at 7:51 PM

so, MichelleS, assuming that blurb doesn’t look to good to you either?

And so Mac Mac Mac, Blah Blah Blah. Blech.
And yes i like mac. Just lets move on. Don’t fix what ain’t broken.

Amy August 26, 2015 at 7:51 PM

Aw Tessa, you don’t have to compete with me…you can be his book wife and I’ll be his book mistress. :P

I had a busy day so I haven’t gotten to the tension in FCU yet, but now I’m a little nervous…at least I can count on Tijan to wrap things up and not drag stuff out over two or three books!

Lisa M August 26, 2015 at 7:52 PM

Tessa you have to compete with me too over Mason!!!!

Amy August 26, 2015 at 7:54 PM

I’m just sittin’ back with my sweet tea and feelin’ really glad that I haven’t subjected myself to Iced and Burned yet…

Amy August 26, 2015 at 7:55 PM

Puppy pile on Lisa for saying that!!

bev August 26, 2015 at 7:55 PM

Amy’s the other woman.
Is she the type who will lose every thing and be redeemed in the next book?

Amy August 26, 2015 at 8:01 PM

Touché Bev!!! LOL!!!!!!

bev August 26, 2015 at 8:15 PM
Lisa August 26, 2015 at 8:23 PM

Logan…Mason….Logan….Mason.
Damn I’m really going to have to read this series and find out for myself.

Are you with me Maryse?????

Lisa M August 26, 2015 at 8:23 PM

Sorry Amy!! Maryse, it’s time for you to read this series!! You are going to love it!! Tijan is such an amazing writer. You will be hooked!!

bev August 26, 2015 at 8:33 PM

Let’s try this again. Takes place in Hawaii.

bev August 26, 2015 at 8:34 PM
Maryse August 26, 2015 at 8:54 PM

Lisa I’m with you!!!

But FIRST I have to read Heart Shaped Hack by Tracey Garvis Graves. I’ve been told it’s AH-MAZING!!!

And I love her, so I gotta go in… I just gotta!

Amy August 26, 2015 at 8:55 PM

LOL!!!! You’re writing my story Bev!!

Except I’m not blonde. And hubby is only 5’11″…but I’m 5’1″ so I still feel like a shorty next to him! Thought you would want to know that…ya know, for research purposes. ;)

Maryse August 26, 2015 at 8:55 PM

P.S. OMG I LOVE PUPPY PILES!!!

I wanna be in the puppy pile. :D

Amy August 26, 2015 at 8:57 PM

*drags Maryse into the puppy pile*

*kicks Heart Shaped Hack out of puppy pile*

:P

Lisa August 26, 2015 at 9:19 PM

And replaces Heart-shaped Hack with FCH.

Lisa August 26, 2015 at 9:21 PM

You never know Maryse. Logan or Mason just might be your new Travis????

Tessa August 26, 2015 at 9:23 PM

OOoh I remember. I just am waiting to see what that’s about.

*falls into the pile* Now, Maryse. Some people say the Heart Shaped Hack is good, but look at how many say FCH is good. First day, FCU was at #15 of all paid kindle sales. That sounds like some people might like the series.

Okay, Amy is his mistress. Hrm. Let me contemplate that one.

Tessa August 26, 2015 at 9:24 PM

Wait! MichelleS! I saw you. Look at The Affiliate by KA Linde. It screams “need to be read”, doesn’t it?

bev August 26, 2015 at 9:25 PM

Puppy pile. Uh-oh. Think some one maybe upset with Maryse.
http://cdn.attackofthecute.com/February-13-2012-18-04-07-favoritepharaohhoundphotos2.jpg

MichelleS August 26, 2015 at 9:41 PM

Tessa – read the blurb. Sounds pretty ‘Michelle like”….. hmmm…. she’s 17, so is this YA? NA? and he’s the King? Like a young King? or a hot King? You read it and tell me how much hanky panky I’m getting. There’s only a few Simon and Meg relationships I can handle at any given time! LOL. If there is enough “magic” and the writing and world building is good, then no hanky panky needed.

Cheryl August 26, 2015 at 9:45 PM

Amy, Pure Abandon is a standalone with an Arsen feel. It doesn’t end on a CH, but book 2 Reckless Abandon continues with one of the characters from PA. Comes out October 27th.

Maryse August 26, 2015 at 9:51 PM

True true… you guys have a point. LOL on Amy’s theatrics. *snort*

And Lisa replacing the book. You guys make me laugh out loud for real!

bev August 26, 2015 at 9:53 PM

Begging for it & Hold .pn on the first. Hmm. I think Begging for It first. Though, eep, we are probably visiting the creepy house.
Tessa, Amy, Maryse?? BR?

Anne August 26, 2015 at 9:55 PM

This is happening right now :D
http://postimg.org/image/beh984oqx/

bev August 26, 2015 at 9:56 PM

MichelleS, do you think you may get to witness a kiss in the next Others. If we do it’ll probably be on the nose, lol.

Anne August 26, 2015 at 10:02 PM

Tessa just looked at the blurb for The Affiliate and I am so in for a BR. I love KA Linde and this one sounds amazing! I only hope there’s not a big CH.

Cheryl August 26, 2015 at 10:02 PM

Maryse I was leaning towards Heart Shaped Hack next too!! Jump on out of that puppy pile and let’s start reading. I’ll run interference with Amy and Lisa. *Hands Amy & Lisa a Hibiscus vodka martini in special martini glass that has a pic of Logan and Mason* ;)

bev August 26, 2015 at 10:04 PM

Amy….you Tessa’s highschool age book husband’s mistress and your concerned with the accuracy of your book? Its NA by the way or we will never get Fabi to read it.

Anne August 26, 2015 at 10:06 PM

Maryse I really liked Heart-Shaped Hack. Ian and Kate are amazing together and there’s a little mystery and angst. It didn’t disappoint!

fabi August 26, 2015 at 10:07 PM

I’m sorry Maryse, I just saw your comment. I worked an 18 he day yesterday and am just now trying to catch up with all the posts.

Yes, I recently read the entire FCH series. I LOVED it and can’t wait to read FCU. Sorry I can’t join you on the marathon read but I read them recently, like within a month or so ago. Oh, and it was a marathon for me. I read them ALL back to back.

Anne August 26, 2015 at 10:07 PM

Cheryl read it next! It was a great read :)

bev August 26, 2015 at 10:11 PM

The cover of the Tessa, Mason, Amy book. It’s Indie.
http://thetinkashow.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/Tinka_OlderWYngrM.jpg

Tessa August 26, 2015 at 10:16 PM

Bev, definitely. Oh, haven’t pre-ordered it though. I should. I like getting it at 9pm. Evening read and all that.

*begins giggling* The pile grew. Anne is reading it. Also, yeah! A BR on The Affiliate. MichelleS, I’ll happily be the guinea pig since, if it has a CH, I won’t be bugged by it.

*holds breath* Maryse really might? *covers eyes*

fabi August 26, 2015 at 10:16 PM

Have I mentioned that you guys are killing me with FCU? I reeeaaallly want to save it for my weekend read. I KNOW I won’t want to put it down.

Tessa August 26, 2015 at 10:17 PM

*blinks* Dustin Hoffman is not sexy! Mason is hotter than that!

Tessa August 26, 2015 at 10:27 PM

Any Witch Way You Can (Wicked Witches of the Midwest Book 1) by Amanda M. Lee is free right now.

fabi August 26, 2015 at 10:27 PM

Huh Bev? I love YA.

fabi August 26, 2015 at 10:29 PM

I’m D-dying, I wish I could go without sleepnthis the entire week just so I could read FCU now.

fabi August 26, 2015 at 10:34 PM

I think I already mentioned this, but my memory is shot, so here goes again if I did.

Cole McCade’s The Lost went live yesterday. It’s supposed to be dark, dark, dark. I can’t wait to read this one too.

I have King started and of course I’ll have to read Tyrant immediately afterwards, so I’m thinking of squirreling…..Starting FCU on Friday and going to the The Lost afterwards. Then maybe back to King. What do y’all think? Will that be too much dark back to back?

bev August 26, 2015 at 10:43 PM
bev August 26, 2015 at 10:48 PM

Fabi, I know. Amy was talking about how the pic wasn’t accurate. I’m assuming she is past her early twenties, which is around the age you like. Well that and younger. So just saying we have to put her in NA for you to read, not in a cr with h/H in 30s.

Tessa August 26, 2015 at 10:59 PM

Hahaha Better? He looks like a mafia guy.

Lisa August 26, 2015 at 11:08 PM

Noooo Fabi. That’s the only way to do it!! Even when I’m in a fog after a REEEALLY good read I go straight into the next. Lets face it my tbr list could reach the moon and back…..Ive basically got to read non stop if I want to make a dent. :)

bev August 26, 2015 at 11:18 PM
Tessa August 26, 2015 at 11:28 PM

ROFL Brad Pitt, huh? I guess in that one, I can’t complain. Oh, wait. In that one, I lose Mason. Amy, you get to be Angelina Jolie. I have to be Jennifer Aniston.

bev August 26, 2015 at 11:34 PM

Lol, have to be. Yeah, it’d suck to wake up and be Jennifer Aniston.lol.
What would your cover be??? Not that easy.

Tessa August 26, 2015 at 11:38 PM

That seems best. lol At least you didn’t pick someone like Justin Beiber. That would just… it would… Yeah. Man buns over that.

bev August 26, 2015 at 11:41 PM

Justin Beiber???!!!
NO NO NO
Actually I was never into Pitt in that way. Depp, yes, lol. Though he is making choices that are kind of ….hmm……

bev August 26, 2015 at 11:49 PM
bev August 27, 2015 at 12:09 AM

Mkay. Super sleepy is making me slightly silly. Time for bed.

Tessa August 27, 2015 at 12:12 AM

ROFL Jean is a Logan lover. That’s Lisa. :) I like the Johnny Depp one more. I only liked Brad Pitt in Legends of the Fall. He’s too pretty.

You know, all this is based on the idea of Mason cheating. Since we are in pretend world, make him look a little like Jensen Ackles,

Tessa August 27, 2015 at 12:13 AM

Goodnight!

Ela August 27, 2015 at 9:09 AM

ROFLMAO

Just had to share the HAWTNESS of Gandy for not reason at all, other then to not think of the Biebs *shivers*

https://www.google.com/search?q=david+gandy&rls=com.microsoft:en-us:IE-Address&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0CAgQ_AUoAmoVChMIwJb2hrjJxwIVRROSCh2PCAj0&biw=1152&bih=682

Tessa August 27, 2015 at 9:18 AM

Some of those are nice. The ad with him in a bathtub and a cigarette… I can’t unsee that, can i? *shudders* It looks creepy.

bev August 27, 2015 at 9:19 AM

Tessa, in my head Jean is Judi Dench. *shrug*

Ela, lol. Gandy as mind bleach.

Ela August 27, 2015 at 9:25 AM

Tessa????? Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa????????????? I love that pic of him……….just look into his blue blue eyes :)

Tessa August 27, 2015 at 9:51 AM

It’s a black and white. :P That way he’s sitting in that bathtub, though. It’s not natural. It’s got horror movie written all over it.

Jean August 27, 2015 at 9:55 AM

Bev, Judi Dench seriously? I mean she’s a terrific lady, but I look NOTHING like her! Lol!

Since it’s first line Thursday, and I haven’t been able to read much this week, here’s to Fallen Crest University:
“Weddings were where two souls became one, but for me, it was a day where I was about to beat a bitch down.” I’ll be finishing it today!

Jean August 27, 2015 at 10:00 AM

Fabi, thanks for the info on the new Cole McCade book! You were the one who introduced me and I loved the other books! Think I’ll let you guinea pig that one and see what you think.

Tessa August 27, 2015 at 10:03 AM

FIrst line Thursday.

“Do you have to go?”
-The Winter King by CL Wilson

Yeah, and that sentence reveals NOTHING!

Maryse August 27, 2015 at 10:17 AM

My first line Thursday…

“The babies are going to starve.” Helena said.

Jean August 27, 2015 at 10:19 AM

What book is that Maryse?!?!?

Haha Tessa, your first lines are always so vague….

Tessa August 27, 2015 at 10:21 AM

*eyes the line* Heart Shaped Hack. After that, though, FCH, k? :)

Tessa August 27, 2015 at 10:22 AM

I know! I even come across books on Mon or Tues and think, wow, great first line. I shouldn’t read this until Thursday. Then, of course, I read it.

Maryse August 27, 2015 at 10:27 AM

‘kay!!!

LOL! I’m about 20% in and it’s good. Not blowing me away yet…

Paula August 27, 2015 at 10:30 AM

First line Thursday –

“I’ve got room Red”

Fractured and Formidable – AJ Downey

Ela August 27, 2015 at 10:43 AM

I’ve just been thinking how Tessa described the Merry Gentry series and it is so darn true!!!!!!!

After the bath, they have sex
She was hurt, they had sex
He was hurt, they had sex
The goddess called, they had numerous sex
They were bloodied, they had multiple sex
After close death, they had sex
When they didn’t think about sex, they still had sex
When they weren’t having sex, they still technically had sex

Tessa August 27, 2015 at 10:44 AM

ROFL It gets annoying after a while, huh?

Tessa August 27, 2015 at 10:45 AM

What’s worse, that last line, When they weren’t having sex, they still technically had sex, is actually true!

Ela August 27, 2015 at 10:50 AM

I’m on book 4 so not bored yet. I’m holding up I guess! And yes, it’s so true

Ela August 27, 2015 at 10:51 AM

THEY ARE ALWAYS HAVING SEX, at least there are plots, right???

But darn, her aunt is one nasty a** bitch c*&t *shudders*

Tessa August 27, 2015 at 11:01 AM

See, I do agree the story is there. It’s just a lot of times, it seems like the sex is pointless or just, rather than deal with a situation, sex heals everything! However, I do like the plot, yes. :)

Cheryl August 27, 2015 at 11:33 AM

First line:

“The babies are going to starve,” Helena said. Heart-Shaped Hack.

I agree, Maryse, initially I was like bleh, but slowly Ian is drawing me in with his witty comments. He kinda reminds me of a person with Asperger’s syndrome. Highly intelligent but socially his speech is so formal. Either that or he’s so intelligent he doesn’t understand when someone -Kate, doesn’t agree or get what he’s saying.

Cheryl August 27, 2015 at 12:03 PM

Several lines have made me LOL in HSH like this one…“A Ford Focus? You want me to tool around town in a Ford Focus? Jesus , would I still have my balls?”
And this one: “You’ve obviously hacked into my computer. How did you do it?” “I came in your backdoor.” “I’m certain you did not.” “I assure you that I did.” “Without even discussing it with me first? No preparation? No warning? Don’t you think that’s incredibly bad form?” Ian grinned. “Are we still talking about your computer? Because I find you utterly delightful right now.” ;)

Jean August 27, 2015 at 1:54 PM

Lol Cheryl! That sounds good!

For those of you who have been waiting for a sale like me to buy Grey, it’s $1.99 today. Mine!

bev August 27, 2015 at 2:41 PM

Jean it’s because I love a character she played in a series named Jean.

Amy August 27, 2015 at 3:48 PM

I KNEW this would happen…I’m already missing the FCH gang. :( Oh Logan. *sigh* That part was NOT cool. Y’all know what part I’m talking about. I’m still Mason’s mistress (*sticks tongue out at Tessa*) but Logan has my heart as well. In a big brother-best guy friend kind of way, of course. ;)

Hey Bev, did you mean you think *I* am past my early 20′s? *snort* Sweet pea, I’m pretty sure I’m older even than you! *snort*

fabi August 27, 2015 at 3:50 PM

I can’t post my first line because I’m reading King (even though I haven’t had time to read anything in two days), but y’all know, that first line isn’t “postable”.

Jean, yes mam, I will GP The Lost and let you know. :-)

Amy August 27, 2015 at 3:52 PM

First line Thursday…

“I knew my marriage was in trouble the night my husband brought home a streetwalker to teach me how to satisfy him.” ~ Lily of the Springs by Carole Bellacera

BAM! How’s that for the start of a book?? :P

Amy August 27, 2015 at 3:56 PM

Maryse!! Are you really going to start FCH next??? *skips around while tossing confetti*

Oh heck yeah, Fabi…the first line of the prologue in King is definitely NOT postable. *cringes* Although, you could post the first line of the first chapter with a little bit of editing ’cause that one is snort-worthy…

Tessa August 27, 2015 at 3:56 PM

That’s an eye opener, that’s for sure.

fabi August 27, 2015 at 3:58 PM

IDK Amy, I thought that one was a bit over the top too. Lol the things we read for fun

Paula August 27, 2015 at 3:59 PM

Amy – I loved Lily of the springs!

Amy August 27, 2015 at 4:11 PM

Oh, we can handle that first line around here. I still remember it. *snicker*

That’s great to hear, Paula! :D I think I’m going to like this h after reading the last paragraph of the prologue (after seeing the streetwalker):

“Two years ago, I’d sat at the kitchen table and watched my mother-in-law go after Jake’s father with a butcher knife. This time, it was me with the knife and Jake was about to become acquainted with the business end of it.” LOL!!!!

Tessa August 27, 2015 at 6:08 PM

I can top my useless Thursday quote, which was from the prologue, with a Chapter one quote.

“He’s here!”

Yep, it’s even worse than the first one.

bev August 27, 2015 at 6:27 PM

Amy, wouldn’t bet on it, lol.
Hey, have you read Game of Thrones? Its 1.99
As is Station Eleven & Gone Girl.

Maryse August 27, 2015 at 6:55 PM

LOL Tessa!
:P

Maryse August 27, 2015 at 6:55 PM

Ohhhh good bargains!! :D

Maryse August 27, 2015 at 7:17 PM

I would VERY much like too, Amy so yes. I do believe I’m starting it next. Sunday?

Maryse August 27, 2015 at 7:32 PM

*snort* OMG!!!!! LOL bev thanks for that puppy pile photo. That’s TESSA!

She has no more peanuts…so… you know. She’s smothering me with other… nut…hings. LOL!!

http://cdn.attackofthecute.com/February-13-2012-18-04-07-favoritepharaohhoundphotos2.jpg

Tessa August 27, 2015 at 7:35 PM

Hahaha Is that what I’m doing now? *grins* It makes sense. And, you can’t complain because they are so cute!

I have to say, Winter King is really good and I’m totally sucked in. It’s just, the first line alone isn’t as thrilling as the rest of the book.

Maryse August 27, 2015 at 7:37 PM

P.S. It’s so NICE of you all to give me Mason. *flinches from Tessa’s glare*

But what if I… like Logan? Hrrrrmmmmmmm? :P

Tessa August 27, 2015 at 7:50 PM

You can have Logan. That’s better. Quite a few have already taken Mason. Amy’s his mistress, and Lisa’s been plotting for Mason and I to get a divorce.

Maryse August 27, 2015 at 7:53 PM

bev… I’ll laugh my butt off if you call me a space cowboy. LOL!!!!

bev August 27, 2015 at 7:55 PM

Do you think Mason & Logan look like someone. Or is it just in your mind made up from the book?

bev August 27, 2015 at 8:04 PM

Lol. Are you going back through our comments?
That must be interesting.
:-I

Amy August 27, 2015 at 8:24 PM

O. M. G. Other nut things?

:|

I’m trying to hold back here…

*bites fist*

Aw screw it! Tessa is smothering you…

with…

PUPNUTS!!!!! :P

Amy August 27, 2015 at 8:28 PM

Maryse is getting introduced to the Kade brothers SUNDAY!!!

Where’s your happy dance Tessa????

bev August 27, 2015 at 9:01 PM
Lisa M August 27, 2015 at 9:01 PM

Yeah!!! I’m doing a happy dance along with Tessa!!! Not sure what to read next!! Ready to move on from The Rocker That Holds Me series. So many choices!!!

Tessa August 27, 2015 at 10:14 PM

*is doing happy dance* Only took two years! The irony is, before I even posted, I was a lurker. I found out about FCH through someone else telling her to read it! :)

And this is my happy dance! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFNLbAs3KAU

Mason honestly has his own look in my head. I don’t have a specific person, just the guy I imagine based on the description.

bev August 27, 2015 at 10:35 PM

Tessa, talking of happy dancing, have you ever seen this?

bev August 27, 2015 at 10:36 PM
Tessa August 27, 2015 at 10:51 PM

Super cute. :)

Anne August 27, 2015 at 11:35 PM

Oh that little girl is so cute! She stole the show!

Grey August 28, 2015 at 6:27 AM

I started Mason last night. Worked yesterday, busy today. But tonight and tomorrow… I will finish the FCH series. Need Fourth Down and University…

Oh my god, Public… that Kate, she’s a straight up sociopath!

Maryse…come play with us, FCH is so awesome, you’ll like it… promise!

FCH…..Me too Grey. On to FC Family now. There are quite a few that Id consider sociopaths!!!! I don’t remember school being quite that brutal…..but God its entertaining. (And yummy Mason).

Come to the dark side Maryse.
