<— LOOK WHAT’S LIVE!!! This is the latest and LAST release in Kristen Ashley’s “The ‘Burg” series and OMG this blurb gave me a jolt or sure. A case of unrequited love. I just hope I get to “live it” with the heroine and feel that ache for a bit before the delicious “MINE” relief. YAY ME!!!! I mean who can resist this?!!
In love for years with the last bastion of the ‘burg’s eligible bachelors, Garrett Merrick, Cher worked hard at making him laugh. Being one of the guys. Having him in her life the only way she could. All this knowing he was in love with another woman…
Lee: 39% in Hold On..!! Arghhhhh the feels!!! I just CAN’T!!
Maryse: I LOVE FEELS!!!!
Rochelle: I spent the morning reading Hold On. It was so damn good! Yes, I cried and now I think I’m ruined for other books.
Okay so from this list, MY “I-have-to-read-this-now” list includes: Hold On (of course!! KA unrequited love for me? Yes please!) and Begging for It (I absolutely LOVED book #1 and it had me crazy and I couldn’t wait for relief, and here it is!! I hope! ) and Crosstown Crush (Cara McKenna!!! Also my favorite author and this married couple is trying out a new fantasy and OMG HELP!! It’s giving me cramps already!), and Badger (also by Cara McKenna and the story sounds SO unique and so awesome and kind of dark and hilarious Oh I HAVE TO READ THIS BADLY!!) and Hanover House (she’s studying psychopaths and serial killers), and Wake-Up Call (wakes up with amnesia of the last 5 years and she does NOT want her life…). And I highlighted a bunch more that sound crazy-good too, below.
Let me know what ones sound good to you.
P.S. Let me know if I’m missing any or if you loved any (from this list or elsewhere).
