<— EEEEP!!! I know a TON of you were anxiously awaiting this one and you’re dying to know what team wins. And now you finally will. I welcome all “safe, spoiler-free” panic attacks and/or *squeees* of glee in the comments, or via email. LOL! I want to jump in so bad with y’all but I have to catch up on the series first (but now I can!!).
BREAKING UPDATE: NEW BOOK JUST WENT LIVE ALERT!!! —->
R.K. Lilley’s The Wild Side is now live on Amazon! He’s 40, in a rut a year after the end of his 20-year marriage and then… ”…His tidy life is turned on its head when a hot young blonde at the gym that’s been pseudo-stalking him decides to rock his world. A very young blonde. Way, way too young for him. The problem is, he can’t seem to tell her no, and she just keeps coming back for more…”
I’ve also already started on books from this list. Actually, I selected two from the “earlybirds” book release list that I posted yesterday, but I re-highlighted them in today’s main list, ’cause they both look just too good. Well actually, one of the books I chose is #1 of a release (#2) that came out yesterday. TAINT and Changing Course are my “Currently Reading” selections .
But, you know me… there are quite a few below that have my attention, so of course, I noted ‘em. Like Behind His Eyes (’cause OMG book #1 & #2 freaked me out and I just gotta know more about the missing years), Whisper to Me (’cause I loved another book by this same author and this sounds good), Bang (’cause readers are chewing their fingernails right off reading it), On the Way Home (’cause I love this dark-read author, and while I think this one isn’t “as dark”… her books always have that twist or that *oomph* factor, and I gotta read this one! Plus he’s a military hero that just got a “Dear John” letter.), and Familiar Ground ’cause it sounds like it could have that depth and emotion that I crave. Plus, tons of new bikers, marriages on the edge, hardened military men (YES!!) and new adult angst to happily drown ourselves in.
P.S. Let me know if I’m missing any or if you loved any (from this list or elsewhere).
BARGAINS (NOTE: bargain priced when I added them, but prices can change on Amazon, so make sure to check before you finalize your order).
- penance. a love story (The Böhme Series) by Sarah Buhl <— I just noticed this one and it just sounds… good. Really good. I love the intro to the synopsis, ’cause I wonder that, all the time.

All I can say WTF & OMG & WTH & !!!!! & ???? I guess that says it all. Good writing, dark plot but it was the ending that really got me!

- Whisper to Me: Between Breaths by Christina Lee <— I LOVED this author’s other book (All of You <— my review) so I have a feeling this one’s gonna be goooood! Judging by that first book I read, there’s just something SO deliciously intimate and “tactile” to her characters and their budding emotional connection. Getting over a motorcycle accident (and heartbreak) with her boyfriend (who abandoned her)… she’s made a very close friend. “Ever since he helped nurse his sister’s feisty best friend back to health, pierced bass player Kai Nakos has been head over heels in love. But the supposed bad boy can’t risk letting Rachel know the truth–especially now that the two of them are back in their hometown for the summer, together for the first time since the months following that fateful night. Never mind that Rachel’s ex is back, groveling for her forgiveness.“
- TAINT BY S.L. Jennings <— Tee hee!!!! This is the blurb that made me blush like CRAZY!! And so of course, I totally *squirreled* and jumped on this one last night upon it’s late release.

Be there as Harry figures out the connection that he doesn’t want to make. Watch as John struggles with his past and present feelings regarding his brother-in-law and as Emily makes important decisions. It is ALL there! And more. THE MISSING YEARS doesn’t end with Convicted’s epilogue. NO!! THE MISSING YEARS goes beyond into the lives of everyone who was affected by a man…” (but first!! If you love DARK books – and I mean human-dark-kidnap bad-guy etc…), and haven’t read this, you must read it from the start: Consequences Trilogy Reading Order
- On the Way Home by Skye Warren <— MILITARY HERO (and darkish read)… one of my fav “dark” authors has just released a new one! She describes it as “…a contemporary romance with dark suspense elements and a military hero.” and wow that blurb makes this one sound very unique! On his way home he gets a “dear John” letter “I need a ride and a place to stay, and the pretty stewardess is more than willing.“…so the stewardess decides to help him: “…the sexy soldier is more than I can handle in all the best ways. He trusts me, but I can’t save him. No one can. Sometimes trouble has a way of following you home.“
