Happy NEW BOOK RELEASE day my friends!! So many to get excited over, and I’m still overly-excited over last week’s releases. Okay so… I got REALLY wrapped up in “The Deal” over the weekend (5 stars my friends!!!!), and SO many of you are loving it as much as I did. I AM THRILLED! Just look at these fellow happy readers :
Tracie: Maryse I friggin LOVE your review…it’s exactly how I felt while reading this book. I wanted to shout from the rooftops how awesome it was and for everyone to read it. Elle Kennedy knocked this one out the park and I can’t wait for more!
Kim: Totally LOVED this book!!! I swear I couldn’t breathe when I read the locker room scene I was laughing so hard I made my husband read that part
Maryse’s Book Blog: Thank you Tracie!!! That book was simply awesome. One of the easiest reviews I’ve ever written. You guys were all SO RIGHT!!!! So many funny parts, Kim but that locker scene just got better and better… this author is HILARIOUS.
Stephanie: Just finished reading it!!!! I loved it and the locker room scene too…..LOL!!!! I just read it TOO fast!!!!!!
Jessica: Im reading The Deal now and loving it!
But I still have to read the other book that was tempting me BIG time (Fighting Silence (On The Ropes Book 1) <— have you SEEN the reviews for this one? INSANE!! So it’s the one I’m starting next. As soon as I finish this post, in fact.
BUT!!! These are making me so antsy to try ‘em now: I’ll Meet You There (HIGHLY recommended by Erin – she’s stuck in her small town, and his leg was blown off overseas… they end up working together), Becoming Rain (she’s undercover but falls of her bad guy), Missing Pieces (sounds unputdownable, I think dystopian and kinda crazy! They want to be friends, but have already been promised to others OR ELSE!!!), With Every Heartbeat (sounds like our kind of angsty tumultuous romance! She falls for him when she goes shopping with him for an engagement ring… not for her), and OMG Need (’cause it’s got that OH NOOOOO angle to it. Forbiddeny!) and so many more. Single mothers and mechanics, or single mothers and moody neighbors, or cops stuck taking care of an uptight women having a wild night) etc etc… I noted ‘em all below. SO MANY look good!
Oh!!! And this month’s pre-order…??? Check ‘em out below. J.R. Ward, Colleen Hoover & Kylie Scott just to name a few. This month is gonna rock!

It’s a must read!” Oh Erin it sounds wonderful!!! “Skylar can taste the freedom–that is, until her mother loses her job and everything starts coming apart. Torn between her dreams and the people she loves, Skylar realizes everything she’s ever worked for is on the line. Nineteen-year-old Josh Mitchell had a different ticket out of Creek View: the Marines. But after his leg is blown off in Afghanistan, he returns home, a shell of the cocksure boy he used to be. What brings Skylar and Josh together is working at the Paradise–a quirky motel off California’s dusty Highway 99…“

With her life in tatters, she impulsively accepts a teaching job in the small city of Lazhou, China. Three months in, she’s ready to admit she made a huge mistake. She doesn’t speak Mandarin, the teachers at her school refuse to include her in anything, and she spends her nights watching counterfeit DVDs in her twin bed. Alone. Jarek McLean is a loner. He’s not looking for friends, and he’s definitely not looking for love. The former army interrogator now works as a carpenter for a small construction company rebuilding a travel office in Lazhou. When he meets Olivia he knows immediately she’s too wholesome to be his type, but when he discovers the pretty kindergarten teacher is hiding a secret, his inquisitive side rears its nosy head and demands answers.“

It’s the only way you’ll ever survive. Convicted of a minor crime, Riana is sentenced to a prison planet—a dark primitive hold filled with convicts vying for power. Her only chance of survival is with Cain, a mysterious loner who has won his territory in the prison through intelligence and brute strength. Sex is all she has to offer, so she uses it.
