It’s Dana’s turn and she sent us her TOP TEN!!! And these aren’t just her top ten… these are SO good, that they are also her re-read list!

I see quite a few of my own favorites (I think you’ll recognize some of yours too)!! But ONE that I haven’t read and so on my TBR list it goes!!! I mean, if ALL of her favorites are all of my favorites, and there is ONE on her list that isn’t on mine, yet? MINE!!! And it’s that one over there to the left. OMG… how did I not read THIS one yet??!!

A little about Dana? She’s been with us since 2013, and when it comes to the ugly-cry books, she too is affected! To the point of freaking out her husband! LOL!!! For example… here’s what she had to say about Lori Otto’s Emi Lost & Found Series:

“Loved this series! I was reading all day and all night to finish all of them in 2 days…I couldn’t put them down. I woke my husband up in the middle of the night crying during a certain part. He thought I was crazy! Needless to say after the up and down emotional roller coaster this took me on, I needed a much lighter read for my next book. So I read Wallbanger and that pulled me out of my angsty mood. Again I love, love, LOVE this series!”

Yes ma’am. I know exactly what part you talking about!!! *GAH!!*

Okay so ready to see her favorites? She says:

“In no particular order…these are my top 10 go to books to re-read if I am in a book funk!”

  1. Beautiful Disaster: A Novel by Jamie McGuire …Reminds me of college!
  2. Easy (Contours of the Heart Book 1) by Tamara Webber …He saved her they save each other
  3. Beautiful Player (The Beautiful Series Book 3) by Christina Lauren …loved the series but this was my favorite
  4. Wallbanger (The Cocktail Series Book 1) by Alice Clayton …I love a book that makes me bust out laughing!
  5. The Golden Dynasty (Fantasyland Series Book 2) …reminds me a bit of a Game of Thrones character!
  6. Rule: A Marked Men Novel by Jay Crownover …love Rule and his body art!
  7. On Dublin Street (On Dublin Street Series Book 1) by Samantha Young …I love how she plays uninterested and Braden sounds yummy. Want to go to Scotland
  8. Lick (Stage Dive Series Book 1) by Kylie Scott …Who doesn’t want to wake up married to a hot rock star?
  9. Lingus by Mariana Zapata …Porn star going incognito as a lawyer. Love the friends before lovers story.
  10. Thoughtless by S.C. Stephens …Kellan is just so like-able, even for a slut!

Honorable mention: 50 SOG, Puddle Jumping, True Love Story, Pride and Prejudice and too many others too name!

These are many of my favorites too so I’m excited to add the ones I haven’t read yet to my tbr list.

Same!! So many favourites! Numbers 6, 7 and 8 have been on my to-read list for ages – with how much I love the rest of the books on this list, I really really need to get on to reading those three books!

I read Lingus back in early 2014 and LOVED it! Maryse, you need to read it! Absolutely hilarious from start to finish and nice slow build friends-to-lovers storyline.

Love your work Dana!! I’ve read every one of your choices and enjoyed all of them, except Lingus which is on my tbr. I downloaded it after reading and loving Kulti. So if you haven’t read that yet….based on your books, I think you’d enjoy it.

Yay. I’ve read every single book and loved them except for #3. Beautiful Player- I’m going to one click right now. Thanks!

Lisa M December 13, 2015 at 2:55 PM

Love your list Dana!!! I’ve read 6 of the 10!!!

Tessa December 13, 2015 at 5:57 PM

Same here. I love a lot on your list. The Dublin Street series is one of those I keep meaning to get. I think I’ll love it once I finally do.

Great list Dana- many I have read already, but I’m adding Lingus to my tbr list. I’m going to need a LOL book after reading The Man I Love. :)

Ooh – 3 and 9 I haven’t read but I TOTALLY AGREE about the rest. Love those books. All of them. Hooray. Something new to add to the endless list!
