<— Eeeeeeeep!!!!!!! What an amazing Sunday THIS is turning out to be. Extra-early birds just went live in the last 12-24 hours and OMG they sound right up our various romance alleys. ;) I’m currently reading a dark good book, but two that just went live make me want to squirrel. BIG TIME.

P.S. Speaking of awesome books, I finished Alessandra Torres latest psych-thriller (The Ghostwriter) and I LOVED it. I was so freaking into it, and it surprised me TWICE!!!! I didn’t see it coming, my friends. Oh I knew SOMETHING was coming… I just didn’t know it would be THAT. Review coming up next. :D IT’S A MUST READ! UPDATE!!! HERE is my 5-STAR REVIEW!!


  • SICK FUX by Tillie Cole <— TILLIE COLE’S LATEST IS LIVE!! OH MY THIS SOUNDS DARK!!! Once best friends (him, dark and brooding and she was innocent and happy) and then they were torn apart. And now they are hellbent on revenge together… “...The pair forged an unlikely friendship, unique and strange. Until they were ripped apart by the sick cruelty of others, separated for years, both locked in a perpetual hell. Eleven years later, Heathan is back for his girl. Back from a place from which he thought there was no return. Back to seek revenge on those who wronged them. Time has made Heathan’s soul darker, polluted with hatred and the thirst for blood. Time has made Ellis a shell of her former self, a little girl lost in the vastness of her pain...”


Lisa: When are we gonna read Sick Fux, Ela???


Maryse: Eeeeeep!!! This sounds CRAZY!!! :D!!!

Ela: Come and join us on the dark side!

  • Unloved, a love story by Katy Regnery <— OMG THIS ONE’S FOR ME!!! KATY REGNERY’S LATEST IS LIVE!!! PSYCH-THRILLER? HE’S A RECLUSE!!! His father was a serial killer, so he hides away and lives off the grid away from society, in case he could be like him… “...To protect the world from the poison in my veins, I live a quiet life, off the grid, away from humanity. I promised myself, and my mother, not to infect innocent lives with the darkness that swirls within me, waiting to make itself known. It’s a promise I would have kept…if Brynn Cadogan hadn’t stumbled into my life...”
Nancy: Finished an ARC of Unloved by Katy Regnery. Best book she has ever written & at the top of my list of Best Reads of 2017!! Just WOW!! Oh ! Maryse you are going to love it! Best book Katy Regnery has ever written and I have read many !
  • Played: A Novel (Gridiron Series Book 4) by Jen Frederick <— LIVE!! NEW BOOK BY JEN FREDERICK! HE’S A FOOTBALL STAR & THEY CAN’T BE TOGETHER… and it’s super-bargain priced (in fact, it would seem ALL of the books in the “Gridiron series” are super-bargain priced right now)!! “Ara Martin and college football star Ty Masters have been best friends since the first day of school when Ty literally ran her over. She fell for him immediately, but having lived under the shadow of her famous father, she knows a relationship with irresistible Ty would only end in heartbreak.  For four years, she’s kept her feelings hidden. But one drunken encounter weeks before graduation is about to expose Ara’s biggest secret and destroy her most treasured relationship…
  • Tempt The Playboy by Natasha Madison <— NATASHA MADISON’S LATEST IS LIVE!!I have it all, money, looks, and any woman I want. Till I meet her and my universe is knocked on its ass and she wants nothing to do with me…


And now…. in other book news :D !!

Heidi McLaughlin is counting dow for her next big release!! Holding Onto Forever (The Beaumont Series: Next Generation Book 1) will be released in just 3 more days, and it’s the next in her popular “The Beaumont Series!! “...Noah is where he’s dreamed of being – starting QB for Portland Pioneers. Together, with his model girlfriend by his side, life can’t get much better. Except that standing in his path is Peyton Powell-James, his life-long friend and the one woman he can never have...”

Kristen Ashley just released the book cover and blurb for her upcoming book The Greatest Risk (The Honey Series). “A woman unable to connect, struggling to hide another part of her. A man burning to learn her truth, and make her whole...” You can read the whole blurb and see the cover here on the Heroesandheartbreakers website!

Natasha Boyd has some awesome upcoming book news for us! Her latest: The Indigo Girl: A Novel is a historical and it went live a few days ago! She says:

When I first heard about Eliza Lucas and what she went through to cultivate indigo in South Carolina, I became obsessed with her story. She was an incredibly inspiring young woman, and I can only hope that this books cements her place in the history of our country. And I hope when you get to the end of the book you’ll feel as passionately about Eliza’s story and the color blue, as I do!

Stay tuned… more to follow! ;)

Buddy reading Sick Fux with Lisa and Amber AND OMG THESE ARE SOME SICK ASS MOTHERF$)())$$$)?!

Maryse October 8, 2017 at 11:41 AM

OH WOW. *gulp*

Amy October 8, 2017 at 12:50 PM

Holy moly Ela…CLICK!

Still reading Ghostwriter, and even though I’m only at about 25% I’m still LOVING it. I just haven’t had any quality reading time the last few days. Long hours + falling asleep within an hour of getting home = not much reading. BOOOOOO to real life. *sigh* I should go back to working from home…

Grey October 8, 2017 at 12:50 PM

I would agree, Maryse. I read Unloved by Katy Regnery as an ARC and although I hadn’t read any of her work before, this was a really good book… 4.5 stars for me.

Maryse October 8, 2017 at 1:06 PM

Oooooh GREY you tempt me so much. I think I’m gonna squirrel to it. ;)

Maryse October 8, 2017 at 1:07 PM

Amy no blame for that…. and anyway, it’s a very… hmm… “smooth” and almost heartwarming/heartwrenching read at first (first 50-60% in fact) so you really begin to wonder where the “psych-thriller” fits in?

Oh but it does. ;)

Mary Ann Fernando Dumo October 8, 2017 at 1:17 PM

I can’t wait to read the Ghost Writer! I am excited and scared at the same time!

Amy October 8, 2017 at 1:28 PM

Oh yes, my friend…that’s why we LOVE Ms. Torre’s books. ;) Gasps are guaranteed.

No, not that kind so get your mind out of the gutter! :lol:

Maryse October 8, 2017 at 1:31 PM

Mary Ann!!!! Just. You. WAIT!!!! I’m working on my review as we speak. :)
