Johanna: Maryse, I need your help again I’m looking something a little different. An anti hero of sort, the one who doesn’t always get the girl. While I love the ones who do I was just wondering what would happen if after everything he still didn’t get the girl or vise versa. Any ideas? Thanks a mil!
Maryse: I would recommend Badger (my review). I’m not saying whether he gets the girl or not but I think this one is different enough, and just SO awesome that you’ll be very satisfied. Read it.
Anyone else have any suggestions?
Linds: How did I not know this was a thing!
Maryse: If we could get a list, it would be an AWESOME thing.
Jen: The first book that comes to mind is Pure Abandon. That ending was a heartbreaker.
Ashley: What about Arsen. A broken love story by Mia Asher? That fits I think. Great, great book.
Maryse: Excellent recommendation! YES! I’m adding it. :D
Ashley: I have another one. Slammer by Tabatha Vargo. Have you read it? It’s a great book, but wow! that ending. Your prison post reader question made me think of it. :D
Maryse: I’ve heard of it and now I want to read it!! I’m adding it.
Kat: What about the amazingly talented Tarryn Fisher’s Mud Vein? And I totally agree on Badger, Maryse had me 1 clicking that without even knowing what it was about.
Amy: Hausfrau: A Novel. She is THE anti-heroine. I was shocked and appalled by her actions. One in particular I despised. But I *never* despised her. Not once. She was a mess but I didn’t care…I loved being a voyeur into her life. As for if she doesn’t get the guy…well, we all know *someone* always gets hurt when there is cheating going on in our books. That’s all I’m saying. That ending…I’ve never reacted this way to a book, but after I read the last line I ended up walking in circles and holding my head for like 5 minutes. I’m so not kidding. I literally did that. It still makes my heart and gut clench when I think of it.
MichelleS: Fairytale Come Alive, by Kristen Ashley. Loved it. And Games of the Heart (The ‘Burg Series Book 4) by Kristen Ashley. Mike didn’t get the girl in a previous book… But he does here… And it has the best side characters & story.
Kathy: Willing Captive by Belle Aurora
Yvonne: Colleen Gleason has a regency The Draculia Vampire Trilogy: Three Complete Novels of Vampire Romance in which one of the heroes does not end up with the girl. Love these books.
Johanna: Great recommendations! The only one I know is Arsen. I will definitely be adding to my tbr list
