Happy Sunday and end of the week. I hope your weekend was full of awesome reading! Let’s take a look at some of the latest author news, from this last week, shall we? You know me, I love making lists and rounding up info. :D

<— Now of course today’s biggest news is that one there to the left. Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Christian on SALE TODAY (ONLY?) eekeekeek

More news?

  • Okay… how about what I’m currently reading and LOVING? This book is freaking AWESOME already and I have a feeling I’ll be 5-starring this. The writing quality, the dialogue, the internal monologue, the slow and steady start (that is just perfect!!!!!). I’ve already been infuriated twice (*gasp* The indignation!!) and yet I know my heart will be melting in it’s own puddle of love-goo soon. ;)  RUSH (City Lights: New York City Book 3) can be read as a standalone too!!! Thank you for the recommendation Jillian. So far SO AMAZING!!!! *big squeeeeeezy hug* to you!!! :D
  • Author Emma Chase is having a giveaway on Goodreads!! She says: “If you haven’t entered the Sustained Giveaway yet – get on that now!! 30 early print copies up for grabs (US only).”
  • Author Bonnie Dee just released a new book a few days ago that missed my “new release” post, but it’s still news so here it is! The Tutor (both m/m and ghosts!) She’s always been SO unique in her story telling. I just love her!
  • Author Penelope Ward will be releasing a new book shortly, entitled “Sins of Sevin”. FORBIDDEN LOVE my friends!!! It will be releasing September 2015 and while it’s not up for pre-order as of yet, but the cover will be revealed VERY soon. Just check out this “mini-blurb”. eek OMG!!!
From the New York Times Bestselling author of Stepbrother Dearest, comes a new kind of forbidden love story…Matthew 5:28 “But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.”What happens when the one you want is the only one you can’t have?
  • Author Mia Asher is currently working on Sweetest Venom!! She tells us… “I’m writing. I’m writing. I’m writing.” She estimates her book will be released in the fall. She also says:

“My deadline for SV is fast approaching, and I really need to pour all my attention and focus on Blaire and her men so that you can have her story in your hands soon. ;)

YES!!! I just finished Rush yesterday & absolutely LOVED it!!! One of my faves this year!!!

Grey July 26, 2015 at 11:49 AM

Scribbling “Rush” down, so I can enjoy it soon too.

I finished Golden Dynasty, now, I’m debating whether I should go on and read the rest of the Fantasyland series that has been released…

Christine July 26, 2015 at 12:13 PM

I am going to have to break down and purchase Grey today since it is on sale for such a great price. I’m also going to have to read the City Lights series. I’ve fallen into a rut of reading books by the same few authors so I really need to shake things up.

Diane M July 26, 2015 at 12:23 PM

Reviews of Rush are that it has a Me before u feel but not tragic, if that’s the case, I’m SO in (after golden dynasty which is so good)

Erin M July 26, 2015 at 3:04 PM

For .99 how can I not buy Grey!

I want to read Rush next after I finish Priest…..which I am enjoying but not 5 stars for me. A little over the top…in my opinion.

Amy July 26, 2015 at 5:52 PM

First Jezebel and now Rush…you’re gettin’ all kinds of lucky with the five-star reads, Maryse! :D Rush sounds really good, but I think it’s still a bit too soon for me after reading MBY…doesn’t mean I’m not going to one-click it though. ;)

That new one by Penelope Ward, Sins of Seven…oh that is so MINE!!!! *happy squirmy dance*

Amy July 26, 2015 at 5:54 PM

Grey…the other Fantasyland books are really good, but to me they didn’t have the amazing all-consuming feels of GD. Still, it was nice to stay in that world for a while and read the others in the series! AND you’ll get to see Lahn and Circe again later on…it’s not the same as being in *their* story but it’s better than nothing. ;)

Maryse July 26, 2015 at 6:04 PM

Amy you’ll love Rush. I just know it. :D

Anne July 26, 2015 at 6:14 PM

Guys you need to read RUSH! I loved it!! Its so touching and beautiful. Perfection!

Anne July 26, 2015 at 6:16 PM

Grey I finished Wildest Dreams yesterday and I am going to read Fantastical next :) Loving this series!

Amy July 26, 2015 at 6:31 PM

YAY!!! :D And the “slow and steady start” will be good for teaching me patience…something I seem to be lacking lately when it comes to reading. ;)

bev July 26, 2015 at 7:31 PM

“Slow and Steady”, does this mean slow burn?

Cheryl July 26, 2015 at 11:00 PM

Rush sounds so good. Think that’s my next read. :)

Penelope Ward’s “forbidden” book sounds like a good one too!

Grey July 26, 2015 at 11:56 PM

Anne, you and I can be buddy readers, I’m gonna go with Fantastical I think too. Tomorrow. LOL

Maryse July 27, 2015 at 12:49 PM

bev… slow and steady just in the story’s pacing. Her life, her job, her friends, and then meeting her new employer… getting to know her new job.

I’m done the book and will be reviewing and it was SO good, but I could have definitely used more time in the “getting to know each other” stage… his angry phase with her, and of course… I could have used more slow burn. ;)

But still a very good read!

Annie Romero July 28, 2015 at 9:55 AM

Too many books in these comments. I’ll need another room to put all of them in. Right now I am reading Emilia Rutigliano’s series Alexandra’s Order. It’s very good, is the book site. It’s worth a look!

Shane July 28, 2015 at 11:54 AM

Rush sounds good…
