Okay so I discovered a new author, and it appears her stories, and her “Alpha” male heroes are right up my alley! So I shall be, pretty much, having a Kristen Ashley marathon this week (maybe two 😉 There are so many books!!). My marathon shall consist of reading order guides, her books, my reviews, etc… Each time I struggle between what book of hers to read next, I choose one, am told it’s awesome, and then find out from someone else, that the other I also wanted to read is JUST as awesome!

Sweet Dreams (Colorado Mountain)
Oh woooooowww!! Another awesome find, and this one, I found pretty much by accident (well sorta). “Morgan” suggested the “Rock Chick” series from this author (“…not rock stars but they are DEFINITELY badasses!!”), and when I looked it up, THIS one caught my eye (from another series altogether), and I downloaded it immediately!
I had a busy (and awesomely fun) weekend and I completely shirked my responsibilities. There was reading, shopping, restaurant eating, friends, a movie (Breaking Dawn, but of course!!) and even a rodeo! A RODEO!! I never thought I’d attend one of those before, but when my friend called with some VIP tickets, I thought it might be a fun new experience. Boy was I right!!
BAD BOY ALERT!!! Ok I think I found one!!!! Another (older?) Brian/Travis type and WOW. It’s a long book, I can tell, and I’m SO into it (a little over a quarter of the way in and I’ve been reading for awhile now). I posted this on my Facebook, and figured I’d post it here, too.
If you want to indulge with me, here’s what I wrote 😉
“Ohhhhh I found one. Oh my he’s awesome. Nothing’s really happening yet and yet, I can’t put it down cause everything is happening. So far, so amazing. Alpha and awesome and brooding like no other. Like another Brian but more alpha. Infuriating and possessive yet so unbelievably sweet but in his way. You guys… Wow.”
So many fabulous freebies!!! And this is a freebie only post today 😉 YAY us!!! (cause there are sooooo many good ones on this list. Steamy steamy looking stuff!)
P.S. I just read “Cool Shade” last night (it’s a short story but so very good). Rock star-ish (you’ll see), and the story is strange, dark and moody, but super sexy. Here’s the thing. It was good, but nothing that was blowing my mind. Until the reveals (yes there are a few of ’em) at the end, that is. I didn’t see ’em coming, and they pretty much, made the book!
Phury, the hero of Lover Enshrined (my book review can be read here – wow it’s from 2009!! LOL!)
At one time (until his own book!) Phury was competing for my #1 favorite brother. His only competition? His twin, Zsadist. Z was always a touch ahead of Phury for me. As the angrier, more tortured brother, he appealed to my bad-boy curiosity, but Phury was so compelling. A mysterious, intriguing character, a kind and gentle warrior, but obviously tormented in his own way. In my mind, the most gorgeous of them all, and the most noble. Not a bad-boy bone in his body… and yet, another one who was completely unattainable, due to his devotion to his deeply troubled brother.
