Happy New Release day (and SECOND day of spring)!! Almost 100 new releases today (and a few psych thrillers that have me extra excited, like that one there to the left!!), but there’s also plenty of romance to swoon over too. Like usual, I’ve highlighted a bunch to help you sort, plus there’s my mini-blurb-jolt list of the ones that have my attention big time!
Like: The Coppersmith Farmhouse (sounds like an epic read and the reviews are AMAZING! Single mom inherits a house in a new town, and the hot, rugged Sheriff is being a jerk!! YAY ME!!! ) The Storm (Irish champion fighter and then he meets her…), Nemesis (that one there to the left!! HOLY MOLY that blurb has two weird cool psych-thriller/sci-fi-like twists, and I think will make for riveting reading. Each year he comes and murders her, and then she comes back to life, but then the blurb totally get’s weird. But cool-weird… I’m intrigued!), If I’m Found (another psych-thrillery looking one, but I didn’t read the blurb ’cause it’s a sequel. That said, book #1 has her on the run as a suspect for murder and she’s trying to figure what’s happening), His to Seduce (Doctor that leaves his job due to a devastating circumstance that leaves him reeling, so he bartends instead, and meets her…), The Secrets You Keep (psych-thriller!! Her new husband is being secretive and women are being murdered…). Eeeeeeeeeep!!! and Playing To Win (she’s had a forever crush on this hockey star and she finally gets to meet him, but she has a makeover so he’ll actually notice her) and Take Me Back (They were once so in love and got married, and a few years later, everything is falling apart, and he’s going to do everything to unbreak them) *Oh my heart is breaking and swooooooning at the same time*
Speaking of swooning, did you guys know I fell in love this weekend? Oh I DID. BIG TIME!!! And in case you missed it, here’s my review of my latest, greatest book-boyfriend (and I haven’t had one in AGES).
This book? One of the best, most realistic, most funny, most nerve-wracking, most slow-burn swoon-worthy books I’ve ever read. SO GOOD in fact, that I gave it FIVE STARS PLUS!!!!!! —> Book Review – The Opposite of You by Rachel Higginson <– I PROMISE. THIS STORY IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST READ. And when there was a bit of resistance from some in my crew in regards to the cover (It’s true, not everyone is into that look even though it’s super-trendy right now), I HAD to insist!!!!!!!
Maryse: You guys I’m totally not a beard person… noooooo. And I know the main character in The Opposite of You has that “trendy tattooed, beard guy” look, but trust me… This book is SO awesome, so well written, and he is SO amazing (the ONE character I’ve fallen SO hard for in years… I mean almost Travis-hard), that I don’t even care about his beard.
In fact, I suddenly find myself attracted to that cover, because of how I grew to “know” his sweet, moodiness.
So choose yourself a sexy favorite (in beard-mode) and just picture him… as you read this. It is AMAZING!!!!
Okay and also don’t forget to check out the other yesterday post (the Monday earlybird releases have some of our favorite heavy-hitters on there) ➔ Monday’s Early Bird Book Releases!!
