Okay… okay… 😉 I know NOBODY is reaaaaaally in the mood to cry. This is sort of a silly question, but generally when we cry while we read, it’s because we’ve become one with the book. Connected with the characters, which, wouldn’t it be fair to say, means the book is awesome? Exactly!
Awesome IS what we’re in the mood for. That journey, that connection, and that emotional growth that is often proceeded through heartache and pain, but that leaves us exhilarated in the end. Or emotionally spent. All that to say, we’ve got a list!! 😀
I love the eye-catching covers, and the premise of #1 has my heart!! Unrequited love?!!! Could #2 also be one? Each one appears to be a standalone, and I’m dying to know who’s read them? They sound right up my alley!
About book #1:
Eight months ago, you were just a soldier about to be deployed and I was just a waitress, sneaking you a free pancake and hoping you wouldn’t notice that my gaze was lingering a little too long.
But you did notice.
We spent one life-changing week together before you left, and we said goodbye on day eight, exchanging addresses at the last minute. I saved every letter you wrote me, your words quickly becoming my religion.
I absolutely LOVE these covers, and even more? The premise of each book. Not your traditional “romance heroine” but I have no doubt every bit, someone we can relate to and connect with.
About book #1
It’s true. I’m not what most people would call “pretty” and, well, high school was rough. Fast forward ten years and life is good…
Until a bunch of jerks think it’s hilarious to put the “butterface” (AKA me) on a wedding Kiss Cam with the hottest guy ever—and that old humiliation hits hard.
I recognize him immediately. The sexiest cop in Waterbury and totally out of my league.
But then he kisses me. And we totally forget the room, the crowd, everything.
Then he tells everyone we’ve been dating for months.
Soon everything starts to feel too real, from adorable fights over “necessary” tools to fix my broken porch to surviving a free-for-all dinner with his six siblings to picking up where our last kiss left off.
But there’s something he’s not telling me about why he’s really hanging around, and I’m pretty sure it has to do with my mob-connected brothers.
Because this is not a make-over story, and Cinderella is only a fairy tale…
<— JUST RECENTLY RELEASED and I get a total kick out of the sweeeeeeeeeeeet (and sexy!!) cover… and ummmm….. that clever title. Doggy Style (Rescue Me Book 1) *waggles eyebrows* What?? Get your mind out of the gutter! *snort* Nevermind. I was totally there with you. 😉 After all… he’s famous (or… infamous) for a leaked video that went viral… earning him quite the nickname.
That title just makes me blush and giggle SO hard (innuendos always do), but it’s actually quite a clever play on a very sweet-sounding premise. Mind you… I have a feeling it’s plenty steamy, considering the heroe’s… *ahem* reputation. *snort*
So what’s it about? Here’s a tidbit from the blurb to give you an idea:
