First… happy new release day! And second…
<— Oooooo look at this one! Oh wow, dear book… you just had to go and be exactly what I wanted to read right now, and shift my whole TBR list again, didn’t you? Yep. You just had to be a “forbidden-y feeling” teacher-student romance book that I’m hearing has alllll the feels and is more about emotion than steam (which is exactly what I want right now). Okay, really, I just want to thank you, sweet book, for giving me my biggest blurb jolt of the day (and of the week?) and I’m SO excited to start you.
*sigh* I just LOVE new release day. I get to learn about all sorts of tasty-looking goodies! Books make me spontaneous. LOL!
Summer: Loving Mr. Daniels was so good!! Highly recommend to all!!Lori: I’m about halfway through and loving – total feels book!
Maryse: I am EXCITED!!!!!
Lisa: One of the best forbidden romances EVER. I love me some Daniel Daniels
Maryse: Ohhhh I LOVE THE SOUND of that!
Teri: AMAZING book! It’s not your typical forbidden romance!
Charity: Heard it was amazing!!!!! A friend texted me this morning and said she stayed up all night!!! Can’t wait!
Maryse: Yep… that cinches it. TONIGHT I’ve got a date with Mr. Daniels. YAY ME!!!!
So can you guess what I’m reading next? LOL! But you know me ‘n my current TBR list. It’s loaded in awesome, I just know it, but I can’t help myself with this juicy piece of temptation.
Oh? What else looks tempting below? LOTS! Like… KING’S (’cause a reader mentioned KMM’s Fever-feel, and I’m hoping that translates to “Barrons-feel”). LOL!! YES PLEASE!! Perfectly Damaged (schizophrenic heroine…), Sweet Filthy Boy (meet in Vegas, and she spontaneously goes to France with him…), Tempting Love (she’s pining for the single father across the street. I love pining!! It hurts so goooooood), and Somebody Like You (mourning her deceased soldier husband, and suddenly comes face to face with his estranged twin). Decisions, decisions… however mine is already made (at least for tonight). But, I also noted a bunch more that sound right up our alley, below.
What are you guys reading next?
P.S. Let me know if I’m missing any or if you loved any (from this list or elsewhere).
