I still have a few more top 2015 reader favorites list, but tonight I thought I’d post Jamie’s “all-time” favorite books list (’cause that’s what Saturdays are for!). LOL!!!

Most of her favs are my favs, but there are PLENTY on here that I still need to devour!


“Hi my name is Jamie and I have been reading for about 5 or 6 years. I mostly just lurk but your site is my number 1 go to when I need book ideas. Paranormal is my 1st love and always will be but I am a mood reader and read just about everything. I am also going to skip a few of the DUHHH ones like Twilight and Fifty Shades of Grey which both changed my reading habits in different way.

Here is my Top Favorites list. I am sorry it is so long but I just couldn’t These are in no order”

Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy

  1. The Black Dagger Brotherhood Series by J.R.Ward – Who doesn’t love sexy badass Vampires.
  2. THE PSY-CHANGELING SERIES by Nalini Singh – Nalini knows how to write sexy Alphas that make you want to melt. All her books are amazing!!
  3. Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning – Duhh Barrons, need I say more ;)
  4. The Hollows Series by Kim Harrison – This series is hilarious, action packed full of drama and I LOVE IT!! I also recommend listening in Audio because the narrator is fab!!
  5. The Fae Chronicles by Amelia Hutchins – This women can write Urban Fantasy like no bodies Her Alphas are some of the sexiest I have ever read.

Contemporary Romance

  1. ANYTHING by Kristen Ashley, Rock Chick Series are hilarious, The Dream Man Series are panty melting and I could go on and on and on!!
  2. Undeniable Series by Madeline Sheehan – This series broke my ever-loving heart! I wanted scream, cry, and melt all at the same time. LOVE IT!!!
  3. Thoughtless Series by S.C. Stephens – Ughhhhh this series ripped my heart strings out. I still get chills thinking about it.
  4. Avoiding Series by K.A. Linde – this is another book that made me want to hide in a corner and rock for awhile after reading It is one that stays with you.
  5. Bullet: An Epic Rock Star Novel by Jade C. Jamison – This book was one heck of an emotional roller-coaster ride but I LOVED IT!!
  6. Breach Series by K.I. Lynn – This book was an intense, smokin hot, emotional, raw, heartbreaking train wreck of a story and I couldn’t get enough.

Singles that knocked my socks off

  1. Willing Victim by Cara McKenna, Erotic – This book is dark, heart-wrenching and WAY to short but I loved every minute of it. BUT it’s not for everyone because of the sensitive subject matter.
  2. Hot Redemption by K.D. Penn, Futuristic/Sci-Fi – This book surprised me. It was HOT AS SIN but it was funny and action packed all wrapped up in a very interesting plot.
  3. Beneath the Burn by Pam Godwin, Dark, Erotic – This book had me on the edge of my seat the whole time.
  4. From Rags by Suzanne Wright Cont. Romance – This story was great. It had it all, hilarious moments, angsty moments, and sexy as HELL moments!!
  5. Hearts in Darkness (Hearts in Darkness Duet Book 1) by Laura Kaye, Cont. Romance – This book started out as a novella but now has a lovger 2nd book that adds to the story. I haven’t read the 2nd one yet but HID left my heart gasping for breath on the floor…lol LOVED IT!!!


  1. Anything by Nicole Edwards - This women can write an Erotic book with amazing stories!!
  2. Beyond Eden by Kele Moon – Smokin Hot angsty menage.

  3. Beyond Series by Kit Rocha,

Just read the blurb From Rags- oh yes very intertesting indeed

OMG I read Breach way back when it was a fanfiction. Loved that series! Bullet sounds really good- noticed it’s a series. Did you read them all and are they all about the same characters?
Added From Rags to my tbr list too. Love your list!! :)

I haven’t plunged into the Undeniable series yet. I have to admit, I’m not sure I can deal with that one lol. I’ve read Bullet and I also really liked it, definitely a rollercoaster for that one. The Psy-Changeling series by Nalini Singh is also one of my favorites.

Tessa January 17, 2016 at 4:49 PM

0.0 Your choices are awesome. A few I haven’t read, but a lot of it, I totally get and loved. How did I miss Bullet? That one is now on my radar. (Love rock romances) Have you read Guild Hunters by Nalini Singh. I think if you like Psy-Changling you’ll like Guild Hunters as well. :)

Love this list! The majority I have read but once again I’m adding to my tbr list

Kristy del russo January 17, 2016 at 8:01 PM

I am so glad someone mentioned the experiment in terror series!! Loved that series too!!

Jean January 17, 2016 at 8:11 PM

Love your list Jamie! I’ve read Fae, BDB, and Fever Series. Love Thoughtless and Undeniable series (when is the next book in that series coming out anyway?!?! I mean seriously? Maryse?)

And I was pleasantly surprised to see you mention From Rags! I read that a long time ago and still remember it and loved it! And Hearts of Darkness, an all time favorite!

Jamie, you picked nearly all of my favourite authors and series – how is that possible?!
It means I will need to try any others on your list too but I had difficulty getting into EIT – was it just me? Should I persevere?

Maryse January 17, 2016 at 10:36 PM

Nara. YES!!!!!!!!! :D #3 and #4 and #5 ROCKED MY WORLD.

#2 too… but I was still in the getting to know them stage…

Help please! I am running out of great series reads.
Recently finished the Fae Chronicles by Amelia Hutchins and I loved every freaking word. I have read all of her books now and need a new Author!
I have read all of the following authors: Jeaniene Frost, J.R Ward, Lara Adrian,Lynn Viehl, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Richelle Mead, Stephanie Meyer, E.Ljames, Jennifer Armentrout, Pamela Ann, maya Banks, Rebecca Zanetti,Audrey Carlan,Katy Evans. Too many to list. Which is why I have trouble finding new awesome material. Any suggestions?
