Rita: This is a fabulous book! TO THE VERY LAST SENTENCE!!!!

  • The Bronze Horseman (The Bronze Horseman Trilogy Book 1) by Paullina Simons <— OMG!!!!!!!! ONE OF MY FAVORITES! READ IT!!! SUPER-BARGAIN PRICED AND NOT TO BE MISSED!! Trust me PLEASE!!! MY REVIEW!
  • Fair Play – A Football Romance by Emerson Rose <— LIVE!! HE’S A FAMOUS FOOTBALL STAR & he’s raising his daughter after his wife’s death… and has to hire a nanny! “She’s nothing I thought I’d ever want, Tattooed, pierced, artistic, and carefree, But Tea’s all that I want, And everything Scarlet needs. But when someone decides I can’t have her, I find myself fighting for everything, For my daughter, For Tea, And forever…
  • Confessed by Nicola Rendell <— LIVE!!! SHE CAUSES AN ACCIDENT WITH THE WRONG GUY ALERT! This one sounds like fun! “…when she runs a big, black pickup off the road, totaling it, she finds herself stuck in the middle of nowhere with the driver. He’s got a body to die for and a hair-trigger temper. Vince Russo looks like a felon, but he’s also pretty funny. He’s on the lam from the cops… and a psychopathic, Russian mob boss…
  • Double Team: A MFM Menage Romance by Sabrina Paige <— LIVE!!! MENAGE ALERT! Oh boy this sounds like sexy trouble!!!! “The President’s daughter. Two professional athletes. One giant scandal. They’ll show her that two bad boys are better than one…
  • PLAY by Piper Lawson <— LIVE!!! VIDEO GAMER ALERT!! ”…he’s arrogant. Presumptuous. Colder than a cactus and twice as prickly. None of it changes the fact that I crave Max Donovan like a watermelon slushy on a hot summer day. I should ignore him. But I can’t, because he just became my biggest client…
  • THE TRAILER!!!!! FIFTY SHADES DARKER!!! <— *SQUEEEEE!!!!* P.S. This was my favorite book in the bunch, even though I loved the whole trilogy (I still had a favorite).  ;)  Here’s my review in case you missed it:


Now back to yesterday’s regularly scheduled program ;) :

YAY!! It’s complete, and it’s got tons to choose from (from sweet romance, bad boy romance, sports stars and psych-thrillers that keep us on our toes). It was so easy to choose a few that I’m dying to start right now, and I can’t wait to hear from you guys, which one of these you loved.

P.S. Yesterday was an awesome early-bird release day too, so check this post out (one of the books is already in Amazon’s top 10!!) ➔ I’m loving today’s list of Monday early bird book releases!

Okay so what looks extra-good to me, today? Labor Day (not a new release but in the bargain section, and I LOVE a deep story with a mysterious man that helps the single mom…), Behind Closed Doors (Psych-thriller that is right up my alley!! I’m reading the sample right now and LOVING it. The perfect couple but there’s a dark scary secret lurking… and I haven’t reached “evil-husband-mode” yet but I feel it, by the way she’s on guard around him. I bet he’s bad!!! YIKES!!!), Retrieval (about the perfect happy couple, infertility issues, and losing the one baby they finally had – my heart aches just thinking about where this will go, and this author is awesome, so I know it will be good), Hard to Hold (bad boy soccer player that is suddenly saddled with a baby!! And he has to hire a no-nonsense nanny to help him. YAY!!), On the Corner of Heartache and Love (sounds like it could be sweet, and maybe… deep. She thinks he’s homeless, but realizes he made a promise to wait for the love of his life, on the bench, every single day, for a whole year… he’s still waiting…)

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


For those going on a road trip soon, or maybe you’ve got some projects that require both hands this weekend but still allows you to “listen”… check out the free audible trial + 2 free audiobooks deal —>

  • AND! Here’s the fun-tool again! —> Find out which of YOUR Kindle books are available as audiobooks at a BARGAIN-PRICE! <— This thing is so cool (Amazon calls it “Matchmaker“)!

This way, you can switch back and forth, seamlessly between your ebooks and your audiobooks. VERY COOL!

Rachel September 13, 2016 at 11:46 AM

#Bae by Cambria Hebert is coming out in the next couple days and I didn’t see it listed.

Maryse September 13, 2016 at 4:15 PM

Thank you Rachel!! I just added it. :D

Tessa September 13, 2016 at 4:41 PM

If we’re adding… Magic Binds by Ilona Andrews is out next week. *squee*

Tessa September 13, 2016 at 4:45 PM

Mad Sea isn’t paranormal, but it looks so sweet. Super sweet honestly. Or totally scary. A guy in love with a girl who doesn’t know he exists. :) So, just to see her smile, he buys frozen yogurt every Sunday. He calls himself a stalker in the blurb. 0.0

Amy September 13, 2016 at 4:51 PM

Retrieval is calling my name big time! I’m clicking it, but I’m not touching it until the second one comes out in a couple of weeks. Just Friends sounds like all kinds of tummy-twisting goodness as well. ;)

And even though On the Corner of Heartache and Love doesn’t have any reviews yet, the cover by itself is enough to make me click it. THAT is the kind of cover which catches my attention and stands out in my library!

For now, I’m hooked on Behind Closed Doors. Errands and cleaning are done, and now I’m settling in to read it for the next few hours. Gah! I love that I can do that again finally!! :D

Amy September 13, 2016 at 4:52 PM

Mmmmmmm…frozen yogurt.

I may just have to wait to settle in and run down to Menchie’s!!!

Maryse September 13, 2016 at 5:26 PM

Oh Yay Tessa! I’ll add it. :D

Maryse September 13, 2016 at 5:29 PM

OMG Amy are we BUDDY READING?????!!!!!

Tessa September 13, 2016 at 6:05 PM

*grins impishly* You did, under paranormal.

Maryse September 13, 2016 at 6:16 PM

No I meant Ilona Andrews… added. :)

The mermaid-cover one I added earlier today thinking it was paranormal. I shall move it…

Maryse September 13, 2016 at 6:18 PM

Hrmmm.. Tessa… from the reviews everyone says it’s mythical and fantasy and an “under the sea” mermaid story… so… ? LOL!!!!

Actually, it sounds pretty great! Biker and a mermaid… YES PLEASE!!! :D

Amy September 13, 2016 at 6:18 PM

Maryse…*giggle* we ARE buddy reading and didn’t even realize it. ;)

And R and Jean are buddy reading it as well! *gasp* When was the last time we had a “group” buddy read and all stuck to it?? This is gonna be fun!!!

Maryse September 13, 2016 at 6:21 PM

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!! Amy and Jean and R. We are gonna have so much creepy fun!

Grey September 13, 2016 at 6:26 PM

I wanna buddy read too!!!

Amy September 13, 2016 at 6:26 PM

Hey, does anyone know if Mad Sea is dual POV? I had to scroll back up and check out the mermaid cover that was mentioned (it’s GORGEOUS!!), and the blurb was cracking me up…trades his mancard every Sunday for a pink froyo punch card? LOL!! But y’all know my issues with all-male POV’s and I’m too chicken to check out the reviews to find out for fear of spoilers. :?

Grey September 13, 2016 at 6:27 PM

Wait…hold on, what are you reading… *giggle*

Amy September 13, 2016 at 6:28 PM

*squeals and claps hands* Get the creepy blankie fort ready!!

Come behind closed doors with us, Grey!!! :D

Amy September 13, 2016 at 6:30 PM

LOL Grey! We’re reading Behind Closed Doors…hence my cheesy comment up there. ;)

Tessa September 13, 2016 at 6:30 PM

Well either way I got it because OMG, it looks cute. And thank you again on these goodies. All these new books, and I’m reading a library book. lol

Amy September 13, 2016 at 6:33 PM

It DOES look cute, Tessa. And I keep looking at the cover because it’s just so beautiful!

Grey September 13, 2016 at 6:40 PM

Behind Closed Doors or Entrapment… do you see my dilemma here… it’s soooo hard… and then you throw in Well Hung, and well I’m one dirty pun away from… well… you know, *wink wink nudge nudge*

Maryse September 13, 2016 at 6:41 PM

Agreed!!! It looks great.. and it’s a short and sweet. Maybe another fun buddy read?

Sharon September 13, 2016 at 6:53 PM

I am devouring Torrid Affair. I know the blurb may deter some readers, but it’s really that good of a book. It took everything to put the book down for a bio-break!

Amy September 13, 2016 at 7:00 PM

OMG!!!!! I’ve been texting back and forth with my friend and accidentally texted my comment to her instead of posting it here…it was along the lines of hard and well hung in response to Grey’s comment!!!

She was all, who the f$@& is Grey and why are you talking about him being well hung??? And my hubby is gone right now which makes this all worse!!

Holy moly I’m dying of embarrassment now and she is never going to let me live it down!!!!!!

Grey September 13, 2016 at 7:04 PM

HEY! I take offense..I am *NOT* a him… even though my avatar does look like a blue belted boy part… although..if I was a him, I would be Well Hung… and of course… impressive… *giggle*

Jean September 13, 2016 at 7:11 PM

I preordered Retrieval and it’s probably going to hurt but I love Aly Martinez!

I’m at 52% of Behind Closed Doors. It’s creepy, he’s creepy, she’s a little creepy too! I have no idea where this story is going! What a predicament she’s in…. I have all kinds of predictions right now. How far along are you ladies?

R. Renee September 13, 2016 at 7:13 PM

Gah!!! I’m still at 23%! I haven’t had a chance to read yet today. Hitting it hard tonight! Hey! That could be a book title!

Amy September 13, 2016 at 7:38 PM

*hee hee* Grey is hitting Mr. Well Hung hard tonight. :P

Amy September 13, 2016 at 7:39 PM

I got distracted so I’m only at 20% of BCD, but I’m hoping to make some serious progress tonight. :D

Maryse September 13, 2016 at 7:53 PM

Sharon you are calling my name!!! I love the sound of that.

I loved the sound of that blurb, but the fact that you can’t put it down makes it want to be my NEXT.

Tessa September 13, 2016 at 7:55 PM

You know your in a book fog when a book you love comes out and nope.

Maryse September 13, 2016 at 7:55 PM

Hitting “Behind Closed Doors” hard tonight too. I did the 5 chapter freebie sample last night, and now I one-clicked the full book.

Maryse September 13, 2016 at 7:56 PM

which is it, Tessa??!!!

Tessa September 13, 2016 at 8:36 PM

The book fog is from the Sin Series by Georgia Cates. I keep hoping to go back to it, but I’m done. I tried to read Unraveled by Jennifer Estep, but failed. I kept thinking of the other book! I want more, even though it’s complete. She’s gonna release other character’s stories, but it’s not the same. I absolutely loved Sin and Bleu! The angst, the happy, all of it.

Alright, Penelope Douglas brought this to her fans attention on Facebook. The Cirque, Act 1 by Ashleigh Giannoccaro. All you horror type should look at it.

Maryse September 13, 2016 at 9:18 PM

oooooooooooh…Tessa the titillator!!!!!

A series that has her in a love-fog PLUS a horror book for us to look into…


Amy September 13, 2016 at 9:29 PM

*snort* Titillator…


Tessa September 13, 2016 at 9:32 PM

You just want me to titillate you, Amy. :P

I’m eyeing the one. If it had been any random person showing it, I’d have backed out. However, Penelope Douglas noticed it, and I love her books. I’m curious. I don’t like horror, but it could just be dark? I don’t know!

Amy September 13, 2016 at 9:41 PM

*falls over cackling*

bev September 13, 2016 at 9:56 PM

Simon says.

R. Renee September 13, 2016 at 9:57 PM


Amy September 13, 2016 at 10:14 PM

Simon says:


Go on, Tessa…titillate me!!

Tessa September 13, 2016 at 11:57 PM

I would but your husband might get jealous.

Amy September 14, 2016 at 12:47 AM

Holy moly…my anxiety is through the roof because of this freaking book!!

Amy September 14, 2016 at 12:49 AM

Tessa, I’m so wound up from this book that I can’t even think of a response to your comment. Not kidding. :?

Grey September 14, 2016 at 5:31 AM

I will start BCD today… I need to have some of what Amy’s having..

Cheryl September 14, 2016 at 6:44 AM

First of all, Happy Birthday Amy, Jean and Grey!! *hugs*

Second, I finished reading Torrid Affair- finished it at 1am-couldn’t put it down, but that wasn’t because it was great. Sorry didn’t comment yesterday but RL got in the way. Anyway, it started out great and right away my gut was hurting, BUT by the end I was so frustrated and mad!! The H needed to grow some balls and I never felt he explained just why he was with her to begin with and actually the h needed to grow some balls too! Just got tired of her reasoning for her not changing her situation and the dragged out ending. I know that’s a mostly incoherent rant, because it’s early and I can’t put into words my frustration with this book and the MC’s. Probably a 3 star for me.

After I finish Can’t Touch this maybe I’ll BR with you guys. :)

R. Renee September 14, 2016 at 8:53 AM

Good luck with BCD, it comes at the price of sleep…

Amy September 14, 2016 at 9:33 AM

Yep Grey and Cheryl, you definitely want some of this.

But heed R’s warning. ;)

Amy September 14, 2016 at 10:12 AM

I took a break from all the craziness of BCD and lookie what I found!!!!

I’m still going nuts over the OPI Fall collection but these…THESE are gorgeous!!

Cheryl September 14, 2016 at 10:21 AM

Like those Amy, although the glittery one’s probably not something I would choose. I treated myself to a manicure yesterday b/c of crazy first week of school. Got the Squeaker of the house OPI one. Loving it.

Ela September 14, 2016 at 12:12 PM

Not to interrupt all the happiness and joy but it appears the authors strike again. This time on a nice and sweet post CoHo wrote on HER PAGE. I kind of wrote something on her GR page on a positive note.

Jean September 14, 2016 at 1:38 PM

Maryse, Amy, Grey, R, and whoever else was reading Behind Closed Doors…..did ya finish? Just got done and that last line literally had a chill go through my entire body! I loved it!

R. Renee September 14, 2016 at 1:56 PM

I’m at almost 65% and I’m having to FORCE myself to stop so I can get some work done!!!

Amy September 14, 2016 at 1:59 PM

I’m at the mall shopping for stuff I don’t need and shoveling fattening food and high-calorie Starbucks in my mouth right now, so yeah…I’m not any farther than I was this morning.

But I’ll let ya know when I get there. ;)

Amy September 14, 2016 at 2:02 PM

Cheryl…Squeaker of the House is BEAUTIFUL!! I’m so jealous that you’re already wearing it. :P

Oh no, Ela…please tell me it’s not authors we love who are attacking CH? She seems to be the sweetest person with a huge heart, and I can’t imagine why anyone would want to go after her!

R. Renee September 14, 2016 at 2:24 PM

OK. Seriously? I thought readers we’re busy people who had to *make* time for their books. Where is all the time to be negative coming from? Are they reading too many duds lately? *storms out, slams door*

Ela September 14, 2016 at 2:34 PM

R. It looks like authors have nothing to write but stupidness on another author’s post. Didn’t see anything much from the readers besides my kick ass friend telling those &^%&*&^& off and yes sadly, I do believe those 2 authors are liked among our group (not me :) )

I know AMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

R. Renee September 14, 2016 at 2:40 PM

Ela, really? I missed that! I just assumed it was readers like with the whole Author Anonymous debacle. What is wrong with people??

Maryse September 14, 2016 at 3:58 PM


Amy September 14, 2016 at 4:25 PM

*slides pumpkin cream martini over to Maryse*

Maryse September 14, 2016 at 4:26 PM

*SLURPS IT DOWN and looks for more*

Mmmmmm…. pumpkin ANYTHING (except pie). :P

Maryse September 14, 2016 at 4:27 PM

Thank you for the feedback on that one, Cheryl!!!! That was intriguing me…

R. Renee September 14, 2016 at 4:28 PM

what??? WHAT??? I’ll take one of those, Amy, please and ALL OF THE PIE.

Jean September 14, 2016 at 5:35 PM

I promise no spoilers!

D.DG September 14, 2016 at 5:43 PM

Happy Hump Day!!!! *snickers behind hand*.

First Amy! OMG…for Grey…Well Hung indeed! You ladies crack me up! I can only imagine what your friend was thinking…you could have passed it off as a FSOG reference?!?!

Second, Grey …please let me know if enjoy Well Hung so I can add it to my TBR list. Thank ya ma’am!

And last…I randomly started reading How To Date A Douchbag. So far, I am enjoying the back and forth banter…This h is not giving in easy. Kinda has a The Deal / maybe Beautiful Disaster feel to it….needless to say I’m loving it!

Grey September 14, 2016 at 5:44 PM

Starting BCD right now… Someone supply me with everything I will need… And I’ll take a manicure Cheryl style too LOL!

D.DG September 14, 2016 at 6:56 PM

About 36% in HTDAD and I am LOVIN it…he is such a player!

Amy September 14, 2016 at 6:58 PM

DG…you can bet I was dying when that happened. *snicker*

Okay, so I need to make more pumpkin cream martinis and A LOT of pumpkin pie. Except for Maryse. Maybe a pumpkin…roll? Or pumpkin…cookies? Help a girl out here. ;)

Finally home, going to finish up the corned beef for supper, and then I’m jumping back into BCD. Oooooh, I can’t wait to see how Grey reacts…

D.DG September 14, 2016 at 7:43 PM

Amy! Pumpkin Bread! Yum! A fall favorite!!!!

D.DG September 14, 2016 at 7:44 PM

And I saw Pumpkin Pop Tarts at the store earlier….interesting.

Sharon September 14, 2016 at 7:50 PM

Mmmmmm . . . I LOBE PUMPKIN ANYTHING, including pie.

I finished Torrid Affair and I stand by it – solid 5 stars for me. Now I think I need something different, and it may be Well Hung.

Did anyone catch that EL James is making a 5th Fifty book?

Sharon September 14, 2016 at 7:50 PM

I can’t believe I typed LOBE!

R. Renee September 14, 2016 at 7:55 PM

I totally thought that was new slang!!

bev September 14, 2016 at 7:55 PM

I just read the CH post and response and don’t see anything inflammatory from her or the author’s who responded. I think Shiloh Walker and Marie Force were just saying that it happened to them a decade before. And Bob Mayer to him two decades before. Maybe saying”wrong” in response was inflammatory? I don’t think she meant it that way at least the tone I read into it. But honestly when I read CH post I wasn’t exactly clear on what divide she was speaking on, I’m not on fb groups so maybe im missing the author vs. Author thing.

bev September 14, 2016 at 7:56 PM

Pumpkin is gross.

DG, is that a giraffe?

Amy September 14, 2016 at 7:57 PM

“Pumpkin is gross.”


Damn, Bev.

Tessa September 14, 2016 at 7:59 PM

DG, pumpkin spice pop tarts are really good, but not much pumpkin flavor, mostly just spice.

R. Renee September 14, 2016 at 8:00 PM

Wait…ok, I’ll admit, the pumpkin thing is very upsetting. So, I need to know. What are your thoughts on pecan? Be honest. I won’t judge. (I’ll totally judge.)

Tessa September 14, 2016 at 8:01 PM

Hahaha Bev, our lone pumpkin hater. Now to really get an idea of insanity, I even got pumpkin spice Cheerios. OMG good. Not sweet at all, though if you don’t like cloves, avoid. It’s super heavy on the cloves.

Tessa September 14, 2016 at 8:01 PM

I hate pecan pie.

R. Renee September 14, 2016 at 8:01 PM

Hey Amy, remember the other day when “I” was allegedly bullying bev? Just wondering…

R. Renee September 14, 2016 at 8:02 PM


Amy September 14, 2016 at 8:05 PM

HOLY MOLY!!!! This book is working me over something awful!! My anxiety is through the freaking roof right now…and it’s not from angst so this is REALLY different for me.

Jack is horrible. I would really like to nail his sac to a chair (a nail right between the boys…BAM!) and then slice his johnson open and turn it into a hooha. THEN I would turn him loose in general population in a prison.

I. Hate. That. Man.

Amy September 14, 2016 at 8:06 PM

No, remember? She accused BOTH of us of being GR bullies. :P

Amy September 14, 2016 at 8:08 PM


A pumpkin hater AND a pecan pie hater?!? I’m in pain…

bev September 14, 2016 at 8:09 PM

You put some thought into that, Amy.

Love pecan pie. Love.

R. Renee September 14, 2016 at 8:10 PM

I know! But I figure now you’re not so upset about the fact!

Gah!! I’m being *forced* to hang out with my slightly less prison guard like husband, forced to drink wine, forced to listen to Abbey Road while he cooks me dinner. Ugh!! I’m going to fall behind!!

bev September 14, 2016 at 8:12 PM

For the pumpkin lovers I know many that love the DQ pumpkin blizzards when they come out.

bev September 14, 2016 at 8:13 PM

Abbey Road..The Beatles. .are never ever “ugh”.

D.DG September 14, 2016 at 8:17 PM

Yes Bev, it is a baby giraffe! I soooo love them cuties! Favorite animal mammal. Ha!

Tessa…pecan chocolate pie is YUM-YUM!

R. Pecans are divine! I have pecan trees, a couple of muscadine vines, and a pomegranate tree. Butter pecan ice cream….another yum!

D.DG September 14, 2016 at 8:20 PM

Poor, poor R. It sounds absolutely terrible….I mean seriously being ‘forced’ to drink wine while your honey cooks for you…yeah, right!

R. Renee September 14, 2016 at 8:23 PM

:D I was kidding. But I do think he’s on a mission to prove that The Doors aren’t the only band who had an album come out in 1969. Whatevs.

Tessa September 14, 2016 at 8:35 PM

I;m going to say this. Pecans are okay. Pumpkin pecan pie (yes, it’s a thing) is good. Pecan pie on its own has that weird syrupy taste no matter who makes it.

I went to look, because I never remember dates of albums. I didn’t know Jethro Tull has been around that long. Yes, I admit. The only reason I know who Jethro Tull is is due to the Heavy Metal award.

R. Renee September 14, 2016 at 8:42 PM

OMG are we seriously talking about books, classic rock, and pie? I could die now.

D.DG September 14, 2016 at 8:46 PM

Lynyrd Skynyrd and AC/DC…thanks to older siblings.

D.DG September 14, 2016 at 8:47 PM

I would be remiss if I didn’t know and love Sweet Home Alabama…

Tessa September 14, 2016 at 9:01 PM

I know those songs. Just not Jethro Tull. And! The Who’s Tommy came out that year and Bad Moon Rising by Creedence Clearwater Revvval.

Maryse September 14, 2016 at 9:01 PM


Just not that mushy pumpkin pie stuff. No. Nope. No.

Y’all can have my slice. :)

Maryse September 14, 2016 at 9:04 PM

PECAN PIE is my absolute FAVORITE. but due to the fact that 1/8th of a pie is like… 900 calories… I abstain.


So apple pie (and all other fruit pies) it is…

R. Renee September 14, 2016 at 9:18 PM

I’m documenting my classic rock education on IG if anyone’s bored to tears. I’m a moron, so I can’t figure out how to link it, but it’s @robinhillwrites

Cheryl September 14, 2016 at 10:39 PM

Ok, is BCD purely a psychological thriller or are there some smexy times/romance? By Amy’s comments I’m thinking no romance.

R. Renee September 14, 2016 at 10:51 PM

No romance Cheryl…

Amy September 15, 2016 at 2:31 AM

Holy MOLY!!! I am finished with BCD and absolutely wrung out. But dang, that was a fun ride! :D

Amy September 15, 2016 at 2:33 AM

“BUT I HATE ABSTAINING!!!!!” <—— Yeah, abstinence pretty much sucks. *snicker*

Oh wait…were you talking about food? Sure, okay. So was I. :P

Amy September 15, 2016 at 2:34 AM

Definitely no romance, Cheryl. :?

Lisa Aiello September 15, 2016 at 7:47 AM

OMG – I soooo have to quit one clicking. I have like 200 books that I need to read. And I one click, like I think they are going to go away and I’ll never be able to get them again…. Sighhhh. It’s a disease…and if it’s wrong, I don’t wanna be right. But, before I cut myself off – do I really need to one click Behind Closed Doors??? I love angst and dark and creepy and emotionally draining books…sounds like I better one click this one too!!!

bev September 15, 2016 at 9:13 AM

FLT: “I’ll have some fresh ones on the marrow. ” -Sawbones by Melissa Lenhardt

I’m enjoying this one. The historical details are interesting, but can be hard to read the historical attitudes towards certain segments of the population. I do think her for shadowing can be too heavy, though in one instance it tipped me off I was still shocked at the magnitude of the incident. I’ll definitely read the next book, well if it keeps up, I’m only 70% in.
I’m reading slow but not a reflection on the book. Doing most of my reading on my commute.

Amy September 15, 2016 at 9:34 AM

Lisa…I’m giggling because that’s how I feel when I click books, that they’ll be gone or I will forget about them and then I won’t ever be able to get them again. It’s ridiculous but whatever because that’s how our book brains work! ;)

Tessa September 15, 2016 at 9:41 AM

I read Mad Sea last night. I had to have the lights off for little dude, so I had to set aside Dragonmark for a story on the Kindle. It was cute. It is one that would have benefited from being longer, but as a short story, cute.

“The bastards cut his throat.”
Dragonmark by Sherrilyn Kenyon

I’m liking it, but I was really hoping for Max’s story. It’s his brother’s book, so I’m getting hints, but I really just want his story.

DG September 15, 2016 at 9:58 AM

Finished How To Date A Douchebag….LOVED it! It definitely had a The Deal feel to it!

DG September 15, 2016 at 10:06 AM

Lisa…one-clicking is good…or you will probably me! Honestly, I have this book on my brain that I read a section of like a year or so ago and for the life of me can’t remember the name or author. I should have one-clicked and came back when I was in the mood for it…

Amy September 15, 2016 at 11:05 AM


“My life was a black hole.” ~ Torrid Affair by Callie Anderson

Any takers for another BR? ;)

Amy September 15, 2016 at 11:06 AM

DG…do you remember anything about the book? We might be able to help.

Jean September 15, 2016 at 11:17 AM

Amy, my girlfriend just finished Torrid Affair and LOVED it. I’m moving it up on my list! I could potentially start it next.

FLT: There was so much paperwork. (Prisoned, by Marni Mann). I’m at 50%. Intriguing and hoping my predictions are wrong so it will throw me for a loop!

R. Renee September 15, 2016 at 11:21 AM

FLT: “Jack Torrance thought” Officious little prick.

Yup. Got roped into BR’ing The Shining. Woe is me.

Fabi September 15, 2016 at 11:49 AM

“I had the entire night planned for when she got home.”
Laws of Attraction by Peter Styles

I got this one on loan. Yea me. So I’m going to try to get it read before I jump into a group read of Born Sinner (Se7en Sinners, #1)
by S.L. Jennings tomorrow night.

Tessa September 15, 2016 at 12:08 PM

Oooooh. I really like Born Sinners, Fabi. SL Jennings should only do PNR just because I loved every one she did that much.

Fabi September 15, 2016 at 12:12 PM

I thought someone here had read it already. Was that you Tessa?

Tessa September 15, 2016 at 2:22 PM

Yep! G00d enough for a five star, at least from me.

Tessa September 15, 2016 at 2:27 PM

both The Bloodline War (The Community Series Book 1) by Tracy Tappan andThe Legacy Human (Singularity Series Book 1) by Susan Kaye Quinn are free today.

Fabi September 15, 2016 at 2:51 PM

I read The Legacy Human last year. Four stars, although I didn’t review it on GR.

Sharon September 15, 2016 at 5:16 PM

Amy, I already finished Torrid Affair but can lend a shoulder to cry on, shots of tequila when you want to strangle any of the characters.

DG September 15, 2016 at 5:53 PM

Amy…The h was just out of high school (I think) and having affair with an older man (maybe a classmates dad?) and she breaks it to him that she is leaving town and he is devastated…want to say it is part of a series. I was reminded of this about a month ago when someone on here mentioned another book where the h is having an affair with a married man and goes on vacation with the family…yeah not sure what that one was either…

Tessa September 15, 2016 at 7:37 PM

I was wrong. I apparently read Max’s story. it was Dragonbane. Guess what book I have to re-read? *sighs* How did I forget?

MichelleS September 15, 2016 at 7:58 PM

FLT: “The bone drums had been pounding across the jagged slopes of the Black Mountains since sundown”. Empire of Storms.

Only at 17% but floving it. Rowan Whitehorn… OMG… so dreamy.

Pumpkin anything is just alright for me. Didn’t grow up with it. Germans don’t do pumpkin. Wonder if they grow there?

Tessa September 15, 2016 at 8:00 PM

lol I have to finally give in and say, yes. Rowan is right for her. I know you aren’t far into it but this one, you see her flaws. It’s great. You saw her flaws before, but they really show and I love that. It made her even more real.

Tessa September 15, 2016 at 8:01 PM

Actually you see more of all of their flaws. Way more than the other books, if that makes sense?

Amy September 15, 2016 at 8:26 PM

Oh man, Sharon…that sounds ominous. PERFECT!! (let’s see if I’m still saying that once I get more into it though ;) )

DG…now I REALLY want to know what those two books are! I read Letters to My Mother not long ago, and it was pretty dang good. It takes place in the 50′s (if I remember correctly) and she starts an affair with a professor. It was heartbreaking when everything came to a head and then had a bittersweet conclusion. I would definitely recommend it simply because it is different in terms of subject matter (well, the setting and storyline details…not the teacher-student plot), and especially if you tend to like stories set back in earlier decades. Which I do. ;)

Amy September 15, 2016 at 8:33 PM

Sometimes I really wish I possessed the gift of articulation when describing books like some of y’all do.


But hey! I can out-cuss a sailor any day!!! :P

Grey September 15, 2016 at 9:07 PM

OK. I skipped ALL the comments so far. BCD… Holy crap on cracker… I’m dying here. It’s soooo good! Fully engaged pretzel tummy. Only stopping to charge my kindle for a few LOL!

bev September 15, 2016 at 10:23 PM

Amy you are articulate and, sometimes, scarily imaginative in describing your books.

Fabi September 15, 2016 at 11:10 PM

I was thinking the same thing bev. If Amy doesn’t consider herself articulate then I need to think of myself as mute. :-/.

I can never express myself as well as you do Amy.

D.DG September 16, 2016 at 5:36 AM

I agree with Bev and Fabi on your ability to describe the storylines …and other stuff Amy!

D.DG September 16, 2016 at 5:39 AM

Holy HOTNESS Batman! I started Viewing Room: A Society X Novel…Dark Room was HAWT….well, the Viewing Room might just be straight on the equator! Gonna be an AWESOME start to my weekend!!!!

Amy September 16, 2016 at 11:18 AM

Aw, you guys… *blushes* Y’all are so sweet!

It’s just kinda funny because I will try to express certain things about a book but can’t quite say it the way I want to, and then someone else (and especially Maryse in her reviews!) will express it the way I wanted to and I’m all, “THAT is what I was trying to say!” LOL!!
