WEDNESDAY MORNING BREAKING NEWS UPDATE: Prime Day is over, and it was SO fun!!! But!!! This new release list is still rocking. ;) Scroll down, and take a look at what just went LIVE this week. AND ALSO!! 

ABBI GLINES ALERT!!! This one just went live! Because of Lila!!!! She leaves Rosemary Beach to start over… and meets HIM. ➔➔➔➔

“Two weeks into his no-women-rule he meets Lila. She’s so damn sweet and polite. Like she walked right out of an etiquette book. But he’d already been drunk before she walked in so there was a good chance she might not be as stunning and perfect as he thinks. He’s just too drunk to worry about that.

The next morning, he swears he can still smell her on his skin. He just can’t remember why or what happened after that third dance.

Their worlds are about to collide, and so are the secrets and lies.”

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

BARGAINS & READER RECOMMENDATIONS!!!

  • The Idea of You: A Novel <— BOOK FOG/FORBIDDEN LOVE ALERT!!! My awesome friend Kandace HIGHLY recommends this one but she says to GO IN BLIND!!! Oh yeah!!!! This is the one Susan read and recommended last week. THAT’S IT. TOP OF MY TBR after the next 2 buddy-reads I have going on. Plus my Fireman book. ;) LOL!!! Gah. I just wanna read 24 hours a day.
Kandace: just finished a book. I can’t stop thinking about it. (sidenote: Here’s a tidbit from her review: “…It’s been hours since I finished and my heart is still beating fast. I’ll never forget this book and the excitement the author gave me. This is not a breezy read. I slowly savored every single word. I even found myself reading paragraphs again and again because I didn’t want to leave their world…“)

Ashley: I just finished re-listening to two books by Ella Maise To Love Jason Thorn and a To Hate Adam Connor, both are so much fun – if you haven’t checked them out before I highly recommend them!

Tessa: Ashley, I loved To Love Jason Thorn. That was such a fun book. I’ll look up To Hate Adam Connor. (yeah for KU!)

Tessa: “Shifter’s Shadow (Legion of Angels Book 5) by Ella Summers was released on Fri! *squee* I am loving this series. Once I’m done with my book, I’m going to move onto that! (The book is short. I’ll be done tonight.  :D )”
  • Black by T.L. Smith <— DARK ROMANCE ALERT!!! My friend Samantha (I like to call her ‘Manther <— I dunno ;) I come up with weird nicknames…) absolutely LOVED this one! She’s been my friend for years, and we totally lost our minds together over Twilight. And I’ve come to realize over the years, book-wise, what Samantha loves, I love.
Samantha: Hey love. Just read another good book. It was called Black by T.L. Smith. Dark romance with MC undertones. Sh**ty proofreading but really captivating. It’s so good! Like I said, typos are terrible in certain parts but it’s worth it…”

Jan: I loved the Seven series by Dannika Dark. Wolf shifters but it’s not all about the pnr – more about the people and their relationships and adventures.

Robyn: the Seven Series… I will miss reading about the Weston Pack. One of the best shifter series out there!

  • Dear Neighbor by River Laurent <— TEE HEE!!! I can’t help but love the title (see the WHOLE title on the book cover ;) *grins*) and of course… that premise!! Recent release, awesome reviews and super-bargain priced!!! YES PLEASE!! “Here I am. One of only two residents left in an entire building block in Lower Manhattan. A developer has managed to buy out everyone else except me and the manwhore in the apartment next door…

Morning! :)

Maryse July 11, 2017 at 5:54 AM

Good morning Leslie!!! :D

Leslie M July 11, 2017 at 6:13 AM

So many good-looking ones here Maryse. Quite a few are calling my name. That series by Pam Goodwin in particular. Oooh, and Jilted.

I am currently reading The Studying Hours, How to Date a Douchebag. I need a palate cleanser after The Ground Ruled angst and before our BR.

Leslie M July 11, 2017 at 6:23 AM

I am also still eye balling the insta-pot. I was going to snag one last christmas and never did. :(

I love kitchen gadgety things but have no room for them. My latest one is the spiralizer. So fun making “noodles” out of zucchini, carrots, etc.

Ela July 11, 2017 at 6:35 AM

Morning!

Jen July 11, 2017 at 7:05 AM

Ohhhh I read The Idea of You last week and I am still thinking about it. I also can’t stop listening to Harry Styles album! I thought of him the whole time. I loved the author’s bio too. She is an actress that was in Fifty Shades of Grey and Fifty Shades Darker. I am hoping there will be a book 2

R. Renee July 11, 2017 at 8:05 AM

Holy Moses! I just got the new Robinne Lee AND Stephen’s King’s On Writing paperbacks for $11 total! Thanks Maryse <3

Grey July 11, 2017 at 8:20 AM

I’m eyeballing a pair of headphones on the Amazon deals… LOL!

Tessa July 11, 2017 at 8:37 AM

I saw that sci fi up there by LA Casey! I think that’s my next read. I loved Dominic, but then again it was a bully book. :D I haven’t read more of her books and I’ve no idea why.

Tasha J July 11, 2017 at 8:48 AM

Tell the Wolves I’m Home by Carole Rifka Brunt is on sale for 1.99 from 11.99. This one’s been on my tbr and what a steal! According to GR, Michelle rated it 5 stars and so did my aunt! She very rarely 5stars anything so I’m really looking forward to this. :)

Grey July 11, 2017 at 8:49 AM

Bwahahah, Tessa… you said bully book and I had to reread your post, because I was all like, what, where?!?! Geez…. Tessa… um, are you reading The Unrequited?? There’s certain aspects of the book I think you would enjoy, LOL! Just sayin’

Tasha J July 11, 2017 at 8:59 AM

Sounds like The Idea of You is a must read! I love Harry Style’s new album also, Jen! I bought an iTunes card for music for the first time ever (I don’t buy music when radio is free) just for that. And Ed Sheeran. Lol

Tessa July 11, 2017 at 9:41 AM

I am reading Unrequited! :D Glad to hear that it’s a type. lol

OMG, OMG, OMG GREY!!!! You haven’t read Dominic by LA Casey. Go read it! It is a bully book!!!

Maryse July 11, 2017 at 11:03 AM

Tasha, I have to read that one, too!!

I have 4 books I want to read this week. I need to get cracking.

The new one by Aly Martinez, Unrequited, The Idea of You, and I received the ARC for Tarryn Fisher’s latest. :D !!!!

Krissy Daniels July 11, 2017 at 11:45 AM

Thank you for including Truck Stop Tryst!

Kim Box Person July 11, 2017 at 11:53 AM

YES Amazon Prime Day!!! Also known as Kim Buys All the Goodies!!! Now my poor hubby doesn’t like it as much as I do but I have the blank stare down pat when he asks why did you need that? LOL

MichelleS July 11, 2017 at 12:45 PM

I LOVE my pressure cooker! Anyone who doesn’t have one should grab this deal.

Ela July 11, 2017 at 12:49 PM

See I’m not so sure about these “prime deals”…I’ve been comparing prices and most of these supposed deals are no deals at all. I’m glad I did that because I was ready TO SHOP!

bev July 11, 2017 at 1:07 PM

Good afternoon.

Amy July 11, 2017 at 2:05 PM

I thought The Unrequited came out today so I’m upset about that, and NOW I see Maryse has a Tarryn Fisher ARC?!? Alright, that’s it. Tantrum time. Oh yes…this is happening. Right. Freaking. Now.

(Even though I’m actually thrilled for you, Maryse…and us when the book is released ;) )

A bright spot in my tantrum-worthy day is that I’ve had The Idea of You in my library for a bit, and “go in blind” are magical catnip words for me so now I’m itching to read it!! :D

Amy July 11, 2017 at 2:08 PM

*smooches bev’s cheek*

Good afternoon!!

Hey, at least I didn’t hug you.

:lol:

*runs off to one-click a Roomba* <—— FINALLLY!

bev July 11, 2017 at 2:14 PM

Tessa????!!!!

I don’t know how this can be true but so freaking funny. Scroll down to the HP text. LOL.

http://www.laineygossip.com/celebrity-social-media-round-up-for-july-11-2017/47416

Robyn July 11, 2017 at 2:41 PM

I really want to read The Idea Of You, but $9.99! YIKES! But it keeps calling to me!

Tessa- I saw L A Caseys new book. Idk if I can get into that. You’ll have to read it and let me know how it is.
I have read all the books in Casey’s “Dominic” series. You will love them! They are funny, angsty and bullyish! Each brother gets a book and each girl who they end up with gets a novella. So good!

Grey July 11, 2017 at 2:50 PM

OMG bev, that is the funniest thing ever! I actually really want to read that… someone find it for me. LOL!

bev July 11, 2017 at 3:06 PM

Grey I love the it took Dudley’s death for him to get suspicious. Lol.

Jen July 11, 2017 at 3:13 PM

Tasha J….I hope you like it!!

Tessa July 11, 2017 at 3:49 PM

lol That’s funny. Necrophilia, really? I know they get darker, but really? And yes, because killing off Dudley would totally make things suspicious…

Robyn, I am reading it right now. It’s entertaining and she’s feisty. It’s nothing to take too seriously, but it’s fun without multiple organs.

bev July 11, 2017 at 3:59 PM

Tessa…that has to be auto correct…..right?

MichelleS July 11, 2017 at 4:32 PM

Tasha – I did love Tell the Wolves I’m Home. I read it for my “pick a book that takes place in another decade” monthly challenge. Not my usual read. A very poignant coming of age story. Loved it!

Lindsay July 11, 2017 at 6:44 PM

just finished The Idea of You and it is fantastic. I just got the chills after reading that last sentence. Very well done.

bev July 11, 2017 at 7:15 PM

How I feel about the br.
(If link works.)

https://youtu.be/-Bxc6AzEkEo

Tessa July 11, 2017 at 7:18 PM

Bev, remember the conversation we all had about alien books with extra ? This one doesn’t have that. They are just grey with odd colored eyes.

bev July 11, 2017 at 7:37 PM

LOL! My mind went to internal organs.

Tessa July 11, 2017 at 7:47 PM

lol You have better thoughts, though probably because you didn’t read one that has some odd parts down below. The biggest difference is there is more romantic bonding, they bite :P , and they are HUGE (tall wise people! Mind out of the gutter!)

Cheryl July 11, 2017 at 8:13 PM

Bev, you keep me laughing!!!

The Idea of You sounds great, but the price does not!!

Is there a release date for the new Tarryn Fisher book?

I have an iRoomba and it is the greatest thing ever!!

Maryse July 11, 2017 at 8:20 PM

*sigh*

I love Prime Day way too much. I bought a DNA kit, an external hard drive, and now I’m contemplating a Kindle Fire 8 (even though I have an iPad). And a laptop. Do I NEED a Kindle Fire?

I think I do. ;)

Maryse July 11, 2017 at 8:20 PM

YAY Lindsay!! One of the tops on my TBR list right now!! :D

Maryse July 11, 2017 at 8:22 PM

LOL BEV!!!!

I heard “When is it bev’s turn?” *snort*

*tackle snuggles bev* :D !!!!

Maryse July 11, 2017 at 8:24 PM

Amy. Don’t let it find poop. It really likes to paint… ;) SO I hear. I want one so bad, but for that.

Maryse July 11, 2017 at 8:30 PM

Kim you must share the goodies you found!! :D I love reading what everyone got.

bev July 11, 2017 at 9:46 PM

Snuggles and kisses you all are out of control today.

Tasha J July 11, 2017 at 9:53 PM

Yay, I finished a book!!! It’s been WAY too long, but this book makes up for all my missed time. Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate- 5+++ stars for me. This one’s my favorite for 2017, hands down. I’ve never read Lisa Wingate before, but I’ll definitely be looking into more of her work. For ME (my opinion) it was as good as The Nightingale. COMPLETELY different stories, but all the feels were there for me. Historical fiction, though I’d never heard of the Tenn. Children’s Home Society scandal before. And such beautiful writing! Rill and her family will forever be in my heart, *sniff* they really came alive for me. I really loved reading all the past parts, the way they spoke, everything’s descriptions, felt so alive and real. And then I also enjoyed the present because, man I needed a break from all the rough stuff and the mystery, some part of it probably only for me (drrr) had me puzzled until the near end. Gosh I feel all full of emotion, it’s so heartbreaking. I even had to stretch this sucker out forever it seemed, though I didnt want to, and it was still fresh and raw every time I jumped back in. I’m actually going to watch that shark movie with Blake Lively to block it all out right now. Lol

You need a Kindle paperwhite, Maryse. No glare, can adjust light. Feels just like reading a book. Lightweight too. iPad has way too much glare! And heavy!

Kindle fire 8 at $50 is a good deal though…. hmmm…. itchy one click finger…

Passed out from our Prime buying frenzy. Seriously. I don’t even want to hear about sales.

LOL!

I thought something wrong with blog or my internet. It was eerily quiet here.

Bad news is I am not liking The Studying Hours, How to Date a Douchebag. Good news is I replaced my pick for Tasha in my book buddy challenge to After I Do.

I put on my big girl panties and am finally trying TJR.

I hope you’re all getting ready for your ‘The Unrequited’ buddy read… *pours shots*

bev July 12, 2017 at 9:09 PM

Since I’m a spectator I want to be entertained.
I want Wimbledon levels of buddy reading.

Maryse July 12, 2017 at 9:34 PM

I AM SO IN GREY!!!!!

*downs the shot*

*gags a little*

STRAIGHT???

*laughs*

Grey July 12, 2017 at 9:59 PM

Definitely straight… *giggle* I went in alone, at least you guys have each other. Oooh, I am so excited!

Maria July 12, 2017 at 11:48 PM

Hey Maryse!

I think you should add The Broken Puppet by Amo Jones (the Silver Swan sequel) to both your TBR and Preorders’ lists. The Silver Swan was WAY too good, with just the right amount of romance, intrigue, suspense and, of course, kink! It was sort of like a good combination of storylines similar to Corrupt and Paper Princess which are two INCREDIBLE books. I mean, it was one of those books that you simply CAN’T PUT DOWN so obviously I’m hoping The Broken Puppet will be similar or even better. Thought it was worth mentioning.

Started Low and not sure what I think.
One part that just made me uncomfortable was when the MC was thinking how the length of the guys nose hinted at his ancestry.
Ummm…..really???

Maryse July 13, 2017 at 11:54 AM

YAY!!! Thank you Maria for that recommendation. I shall look them up for myself and also add them to tomorrow’s Friday Recommendations list. *hug*

Maria, I was so thinking I need me a bully book and loved Corrupt and Paper Princess so I’ll definitely check out Silver Swan!!!

Tessa July 13, 2017 at 1:10 PM
