 <— BREAKING NEWS UPDATE!!! LATEST C.D. REISS BOOK IS LIVE RIGHT NOW!!!!! EARLY!!! ➔ Marriage Games (The Games Duet Book 1) And oooooh it sounds so steamy (and I bet, infuriating, too!! :D )

That’s all Adam Steinbeck demands of his wife.
Thirty days in a remote cottage, doing everything he commands. After that, he’ll sign her divorce papers and give her complete ownership of their company.
That’s how long he has to rediscover the man he once was. The Dominant Master he hid when he fell in love with her five years before…

…She thinks this is his pathetic attempt to repair their marriage.
She’s wrong.”

Happy Sunday!!! I know so many are anxiously awaiting tonight’s new season of The Walking Dead (biggest news of the day, and a marathon watch of last season – YAY!! And am I seeing that correctly? Is the entire season one super-bargain priced right now?? eek WHOA!!), but in the meantime, there’s been some great book news, too. This post is short and sweet, but definitely newsworthy! And I will continue adding to it throughout the day as more goodies (or news) comes to light. :D Like…

S.L. SCOTT’S LATEST ROCK STAR BOOK JUST WENT LIVE TODAY! The Revolution has just been released and is super-bargain priced today, too! And Liz recommends it! “Loved this book!”

His whole world is turned upside down when she shows up back stage…

“…One minute you’re living the dream, then BAM! Half my soul shows up backstage wearing a purple shirt and sexy skin-tight jeans, making me realize what I’ve been missing all along. Loving her means exposing a life I’ve tried to bury.

My heart had lost its beat…”

CONGRATULATIONS to author Charlaine Harris (*squeeee!!* True Blood!! I miss them!) for her latest release (All the Little Liars: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery) making the New York Times Best Sellers list!

CONGRATULATIONS to author T. Gephart!!! Her latest book “The Fall JUST WENT LIVE!!! ORGANIZED CRIME and it sounds crazy-intense! She’s a cop looking to take down her drug lord father, and he’s the one that cares about nobody… coming to take HER down. YIKES!!! “…With a strong dislike for establishments and conformity, he has lived his life as a rogue. A hired thug with no allegiances except to his own word. Sofia has grown up in the shadow of her father—one of the most powerful drug lords in the city. She has vowed to bring him to justice, moving through the ranks of the Chicago PD in an effort to be as far removed from her father’s lifestyle as possible. Two worlds collide when Michael shows up at her door, a gun in his hand and a look in his eyes that terrifies her…

And I just LOVE what this author posted about this book. And now I’m even MORE intrigued!!

She said:

“I had an idea for a book. It was completely different than my other stuff, in a completely new genre. And I told a few people about my idea and they had some very strong advice. I was told to pen name it. I was told to be prepared for it not to do well. I was told that I could do damage to my brand and career. I was told to stay in my lane. Because I write “funny, light hearted reads, that’s what your readers want. They won’t read this other stuff.” But I’ve never been good at following advice.

I wrote it.
It’s in my name.
And I did NOT stay in my lane.”

This I Know by Holly Ryan <— JUST WENT LIVE TODAY! HOLY MOLY WHAT AN INTRIGUING BLURB!!! Gave me chills and it’s definitely calling me!

“…I knew the sound of my mother’s voice when I woke.
I knew the painful look in her eyes that meant something terrible must have happened to me.
And eventually, I knew where I was.

But I never knew the identity of the strange, handsome boy who sat at my bedside when he thought no one was watching…”

Lost Beauty (The Deadly Beauties Live On Book 4) by C.M. Owens <— JUST WENT LIVE!! And Jennifer has been waiting for it!

Jennifer: …it’s Chaz’s book which a lot of people have been waiting on, just thought I’d mention that.

Until I Met Her by Natalie Barelli <— PSYCH THRILLER ALERT! FAMOUS AUTHOR WANTS TO WRITE SOMETHING DIFFERENT, UNDER HER FRIEND’S NAME... This one was bouncing around this morning in the “movers and shakers” and it has a great number of awesome reviews, and it sounds pretty darn good. “This time, Beatrice wanted to write something different, and publish it as an unknown author, and she wanted Emma to help. After everything Beatrice had done for her, Emma could hardly refuse. But what was meant to be a favor has turned into a betrayal, and now Emma has done something terrible, something shocking, and the consequences are terrifying…” <— Eeeeeep!!!!!!! eek WHAT COULD IT BE!!?? Reviews are saying shocking twist and I LOVE THE SOUND OF THAT!! :D

ROCK STAR BOOK ALERT!! An oldie (that sounds like a goodie!! :D ) by author Elle Casey ➔ “By Degrees“, is on super-sale today!!! She’s had some HUGE hits (in the past and quite recently) so I’m intrigued about this one! She is hired by agents and producers to get out-of-control famous stars back in public order! “…My latest job acquisition? His friends call him Tear-It-Up Kilgour, but I just call him Tarin – lead singer and guitarist for the band By Degrees. I have thirty days to get his butt back on planet earth before he loses his record deal, his movie contract, and possibly even his life. I’ve never failed so far, and I don’t plan on failing this time either, even if Tarin has other ideas.”

MY LATEST BOOK REVIEW is up (for K.L. Kreig’s Black Swan Affair) that it seems everyone is talking about! Quite the love triangle, indeed! :D
