The Tied Man<— I went in to this one blind, and whoa. WHOA my friends!!!! *whooo* That was crazy! In fact, this was almost the first book that I almost DNF’d (did not finish) but would have still reviewed. Not to tell you how bad it was. Heck no. It was great. Sort of. 😉 I guess it depends on which part of my brain and/or my heart, you ask. I was consumed by it at a certain point. So much so that I thought there was no way I could carry on. Yes. I put it down and exclaimed to the world that I was done. Nope. No more of that for me! I was going to be a quitter and I was good with that.

New paranormal/urban fantasy series that is putting a few of our fellow readers in a delightful book-fog. This one comes HIGHLY recommended by both Bev and Michelle! Bev is going all “my preciousssssss” on it. LOL! 😉
Bev: There are two books that I have to mention the first came out last year and the next in what I believe is a trilogy came out on the fourth. They are Written in red and Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop. Both were all night reads for me and could not stop thinking of them when done. They do not end in cliffhanger but do leave you wanting more. The potential romance is their but definitely a slow build up, which I do sometimes enjoy. … This was a book daze. Do you ever feel like a part of you was left and is still living in the book? That was this one for me for a couple weeks after. So if feeling paranormal maybe look it up. Ok done with my ramble.
Plus… a great list of recommendations including some super-sales for books we know and LOVE! Like that one to the left. It truly IS crazy good! 😉
Along with some highly anticipated pre-orders (coming out Monday & Tuesday like Turn On A Dime – Kade’s Turn (Kathleen Turner Series Book 7) and On the Record (The Record Series) – listed below!! Good stuff all around.
Okay my turn! I was tagged by Sally for the FB Book game, and it was just way too cool, so I thought I’d bring it here for all of us to play, too. Most of you already know my favorites, but I think you’ll be surprised at a few of my “other” favorites from my reading past.
It goes like this:
“In your status, list 10 books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take more than a few minutes and do not think too hard. They do not have to be the “right” books or great works of literature, just ones that have affected you in some way. Tag 10 friends including me so I can see your list…”
MMA FIGHTER ROMANCE SERIES ALERT!! I can’t get enough of these “fighter” alpha-male heartbreakers, and now here’s a whole new series for us to indulge in. I read #1 and enjoyed it (my review), and I’m seeing that #2 made Andrea freak out. LOL! PLUS! Book #3 was just released today!
And what makes it even more fun? Each one can be read as a standalone!
Deija: Worth the Fight by Vi Keeland!!!! It’s fantastic. A little angst. A lot of lust and…..*clears throat*…..ummm….yeah…. And here’s a twist….They’re (the heroin and the De-lish-OUS MMA fighter) both are “tormented”……so…..yeah..
