Happy Friday and good morning everyone!!! The latest Friday Finds list is ready to play with, and as usual, I will be adding to it through the day as more bargain-finds, recommendations or new ones go live! :D Let me know what you’re reading!!


  • ACHE by M. Never <— M. NEVER’S LATEST IS LIVE!! Sounds like a super-angsty love triangle!!!! She had a difficult past but… “...But everything changed when I met Alec Prescott. I couldn’t stand the cocky hotshot lawyer at first, but after assisting him on one case, my opinion changed drastically. He became the beginning I so desperately needed, even if romantic relations at work are completely forbidden. Unfortunately, falling in love with a co-worker is the least of my problems. Funny thing about the past, it’s never truly far away…”
  • Cross by Adriana Locke <— LIVE!! HE’S CHANGED SO MUCH… “...One minute she’s standing by herself and the next she’s accosted by a rich, velvety scent that could only belong to one man: Cross. At face value, he’s divine. All rugged and confident with a smile that melts her right where she’s standing. It doesn’t take long to find him to be charming, witty, and the owner of a few legitimate businesses. Not at all like the mischievous boy she left…”
  • Rough Edge (The Edge Book 1) by C.D. Reiss <— C.D. REISS ALERT & WE HAVE FEEDBACK! Susan is loving this new release!
Susan: I just finished the prequel Cutting Edge and Rough Edge by C.D. Reiss and loved them both. Sooooo good and can hardly wait for the next one. I love when I find a book that I can’t put down and I am supposed to be packing for a trip I leave for in the morning.
  • Lie to Me by by Lisa Lace <— LIVE!! MARRIED IN VEGAS & LEFT DEVASTATED…I came here for a bachelorette party, not a hook-up. Before I know it, we’re in a Vegas chapel and I have a ring on my finger. Things grind to a halt in a way I never saw coming. I’m left with a shattered heart and divorce papers. That’s what we want, right? But everything changes when he sees the baby bump.”
  • Resisting Mateo (Morelli Family, #5) by Sam Mariano <— TEAR JERKER ALERT!! Tessa LOVED it!
Tessa: k. So, Resisting Mateo was a five star. Tears, insanity (it is Mateo after all), happiness, fear. Lots of fear. And my heart HURT like an SOB. So, of course, I am onto book 6.
MichelleS: I’m lerving Darkest Drae. It’s like I get a tiny bit of Tauren Soul (really old tortured soul who turns into a dragon instead of a Tairen – I’ll take it) and Throne of Glass & all the best Fantasy series. Yippee. And it made the list. …If you’re a fan of Sarah J Maas, this is up your alley.
Janet: I really recommend Laurelin Paige’s’ duet, Dirty Filthy Rich Men and Dirty Filthy Rich Love – the story of Donovan and Sabrina! A good roller coaster ride through hot obsession, with some angst, some heart wrench and a buffet of good characters to love and loathe.
  • Forgotten Specters: The Fated Wings Series Book 2 by C.R. Jane
  • The Aeon Chronicles by April M Woodard
  • All Up In The Mix by Donna Hill <— “…Tash should have kept her eyes on her man Jared, but Zeke Ramsey makes It too hard if not impossible. Not only is he deliciously sexy and lights a fire in her with just a look, he is also the ex-prosecutor that ruined the life her long-distance man Jared. She’d fantasized about Zeke while she sat in the back of the courtroom during the trial...”
  • The Outpost (Jamison Valley Book 4) by Devney Perry <— DEVNEY PERRY SUPER-BARGAIN ALERT!! She wrote an article exposing a crime family, and now she’s in hiding… with a mountain man assigned to protect her. ;) YES PLEASE!!!! “…she’s on the run from a powerful man who wants her dead. To stay safe, she’s forced to trade one bad situation for another. Stuck in the Montana wilderness, she’s secluded from anything resembling civilization or the modern-day world. The only good thing about her situation is the gorgeous mountain man assigned to protect her. Too bad he isn’t the slightest bit interested in a city girl like her...”
  • The Opposite of You: An Opposites Attract Novel by Rachel Higginson <— *squeeee!!!* One of my ABSOLUTE FAVORITES is super-bargain priced right now. I FELL IN LOVE HARD!!!! And there was PLENTY of realistic resistance… Oooooh I had to work for it and it was perfection! My 5-star review!
  • Pretend I’m Yours: A Single Dad Romance by Vivian Wood <— LIVE!! GRIEVING WIDOWER & HIS NEIGHBOR... “Heartbroken, destroyed, and on the edge of despair. That’s how I felt for two years after my wife died, leaving me all alone with our baby. I sucked it up and kept going for my little girl… but I wasn’t living. I was only existing. Then I met Larkin, my gorgeous blonde neighbor...”
  • Royal Service (Royals of Danovar Series Book 1) by Leslie North <— LIVE!! THE KING MUST MARRY…King Phillip is a real life Prince Charming. Golden haired with a Danovian accent, and a solid gold crown sitting on his head, he’s every girl’s daydream. He’s a good man and an even better king, but the one thing he’s been terrible at is choosing a royal wife — fearing a marriage that’s more about policy than passion. But when his mother invites all the eligible maidens to The Summer House Party, Phillip is trapped in a real-life Bachelor where he won’t have the option of quietly splitting from the girl after the party is over — he’ll be wed to her for life...”
  • Tequila Burn (The Tequila Duet Book 2) by Melissa Toppen <— LIVE!! MELISSA TOPPEN ALERT!! It’s the DUET CONCLUSION! “Hudson and Lennon’s story continues in the gripping conclusion to the Tequila Duet!”
  • My Brothers Best Friend by Kerry Carter

Marilyn has one for us, and her comment on the hero made me laugh out loud!!!

Hi maryse,

I’m looking for the name of a book I have read long ago.

The name of the hero is wolf (I think) …and he is a d**chebag.

The heroine is having unrequited love to some other guy who is unaware of her. The hero is aware of it.

Tee hee!!! Well I certainly hope you came around to him, Marilyn! ;)

Anyone have a guess?

Kate has a reader question for us! Ohhhh I love rock stars AND I love Avenged Sevenfold. I can’t wait to find out what book this is!

She asks:


I have been going through all my rock star romances, trying to find this one.

She is auditioning to be a replacement/temp in a band right before they hit the road on tour.  I know she dazzles them with her audition, playing “Hail to the King” by Avenged Sevenfold.

Any thoughts on this one?

Maria: Pretty Girls is on sale… I am excited because I’m in the mood for a thriller!!!

What Gabe wants is to put a collar around Julie’s throat and train her in the finer points of being his slave...”
  •  The Berserker’s Saga by Lee Savino <— STEAMY SHIFTER SERIES!! Joy recommends it!

Joy: …I came across authors Renee Rose and Lee Savino, who write together and separately. I read Bad Boy Alphas and loved it, so I went on to read the next 3 in the series. Then I got sidetracked when I took a peek at Lee Savino’s Amazon page and found her Berserker’s Saga. I only planned to read the first chapter, to see what it’s all about but I haven’t been able to put it down! I’m on book 2, with no plans to stop until I read all 5. It’s soooooooo good. Viking Berserkers that fought for King Harald Fairhair, were cursed by a witch to become werewolves!

They don’t age because of the curse and the beast within them goes into killing rages that slowly takes away their humanity. The Alpha (Samuel) and Beta (Daegan), sought out a witch to learn how they could end the curse. She told them to find the girl with the mark of the wolf. Time is running out for Samuel and his pack.

…There is so much more to this series and I can’t wait to find out!!! There’s lots of steam!! These wolves are insatiable! If you like mystery, kink and werewolves, definitely check these out.

When a searing kiss reignites their passion, Liv realizes this rough-around-the-edges cop might be exactly what she needs… Liv’s words cut off as Finn got closer. The man approaching was nothing like the boy she’d known…”

  1. The Outsider by Stephen King <— STEPHEN KING ALERT!!! UNBEARABLE SUSPENSE??/ I LOVE THE SOUND OF THAT!!!An eleven-year-old boy’s violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City’s most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest.

She knows better than anyone that the united front of the Royal Family is nothing but smoke and mirrors – lies and secrets masked by power and privilege. She wants no part of it, and she will never surrender to the King’s demand to marry a man she does not love. But despite Adeline’s determination to retain her free will, she remains deeply unfulfilled, feeling caged and suffocated.

That is until she meets Josh Jameson. Drawn in by his confidence, Adeline is soon captivated by the scandalously sexy American actor. His ability to penetrate her defences overwhelms her – his touch is pure fire, and his allure overpowering. Nothing has ever made her feel so alive in a world where she’s otherwise slowly drowning. However, while Josh may be Hollywood royalty, he’s not actual royalty, and Adeline knows the King and his advisors will do everything in their power to keep them apart.

But Josh Jameson becomes the princess’s ultimate vice.

And although she bows to no one, she bows to him.
