HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!!! 😀 Oh how I love Fridays and today’s Friday Finds list has plenty of goodies to choose from (new, AND reader recommendations). Oh yes. I’m reading all weekend.
In fact, I’m reading two from the preorders list below (by a couple of my favorite authors – Tessa Bailey & Shay Savage) whoo are releasing new books in the next few days. I’m already hearing how awesome Tessa’s book is, and I’m halfway through Shay’s and it is exactly what I come to expect from her moody, reclusive guys. YAY ME!!! YAY US!!! But in the meantime…
TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT WE FOUND FOR THE WEEKEND !!
- The Swedish Prince by Karina Halle <— LIVE!! KARINA HALLE ALERT!! THEY’RE FROM TWO DIFFERENT WORLDS… At her young age, she’s raising her siblings, and then royalty shows up in her life… “…Then a fateful encounter literally brought Prince Charming to my doorstep. At first I thought Viktor was just your average businessman passing through, albeit obscenely handsome, six-foot-five, blue-eyed, and mysteriously rich. But soon I discovered the truth behind Viktor’s façade. Beneath his quiet, enigmatic gaze and cocky charm, is a man who is running away from who he really is. A role he’d rather not fulfill. He is Viktor of House Nordin, His Royal Highness, The Crown Prince of Sweden...”
Lisa: I’m over halfway through and I’m loving it! Giving me butterflies!
- Judgment Road (Torpedo Ink) by Christine Feehan <— CHRISTINE FEEHAN’S LATEST CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE RELEASE (BIKER BOOK!!) & WE HAVE FEEDBACK!! He’s an enforcer in an MC and she’s starting over and works in their bar… “…she’s desperate to hold on to her job at the biker bar, even if the scariest member of the club seems to have it out for her. But Reaper’s imposing presence and smoldering looks just ratchet up the heat...”
Young: Just finished ‘Judgement Road’ by Christine Feehan. So GOOD! Loved it!!
Maryse: Young!!! I haven’t read Christine Feehan in AGES even though I loved her in my strictly paranormal days. YAY!!!! I’m so glad you loved it. :D!!! *runs to look it up again*
Young: Maryse, I love Christine Feehan but have lost tract of all paranormal series. Judgement Road is a MC story (russians) and I think there will be a series of stories based on other characters in the MC gang. I love CF’s heroes for their possessive love towards their heroines!!
MichelleS: Maryse – I used to love Feehan’s paranormal Carpathian novels! Will never forget Gregori’s story. That was my fave.
Maryse: My favorite is the one that had been imprisoned in a wall for hundreds of years and was like a wild ravaging beast and only SHE could calm him… OH MY MY MY that book did me in. …I’ll need to backtrack through my reviews…
Tessa: Maryse, that was my favorite too! Or… One with a girl who basically was raised from a young age as a family to a vampire and was basically claimed by one of the most powerful.
- Hard Wilde (Rough Mountain Bears Book 2) by Dany Rae Miller <— LIVE! BEAR SHIFTER ALERT!! “…After being bitten by a demon, Emily craved blood so badly, she ran away from home and society … hiding on Rough Mountain … crafting a cure and biding her time for the right moment to reach for it. But one taste of her werebear’s miracle elixir and she wants more…”
- Kiss Me Like You Mean It: A Novel by J. R. Rogue <— LIVE!! THIS ONE JUST WENT LIVE and I’m IN LOVE with the cover… and the blurb just haunts me. My. Broken. Heart. “...Over ten years of chasing, tears, lies, vows, and leaving. Two people who never loved each other at the same time, but couldn’t let each other go. Now here I was telling our story over drinks midday in an airport bar with my old diary clutched in my hand. Telling some version of our story, anyway. I left him once with no goodbye. Now I was returning home to give him what he needed to move on…”
Val: Just one clicked it! I am excited for this one.
- Sphere Song: The Isle of Destiny Series by Tricia O’Malley <— LIVE!!!

- The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air) by Holly Black <— FANTASY ROMANCE (FAE!!) & SHE HATES & LOVES HIM. 🙂 Tessa is LOVING this one!
Tessa: …Okay, honest truth, OMG! It’s the first of a series, but the main character is awesome. Some things you can kind of foretell if you are like us and have read a ton of fantasy and PNR, but then there is a lot of the stuff I wasn’t expecting and through me. The end… Yeah, go read it MichelleS.
Robyn: The Cruel Prince was just to much of a temptation for me. It was $10 but I so didn’t want to miss out! Fae, a naughty Prince, a girl who hate/loves him = catnip for me!
- Matters of the Hart (The Hart Series Book 3) by M.E. Carter <— LIVE!! SPORTS STAR ALERT! “…From the second I laid eyes on Annika Leander, I wanted to help her. Protect her. Vindicate her. But she’s got baggage to get through. Hell, we both do. A funny thing happens, though, when you finally connect with someone in a different way than you ever have before. The baggage doesn’t seem so heavy...”
- Slater Brothers Series by L.A. Casey <— THIS SERIES JUST HAD A NEW RELEASE & Robyn recommends the whole thing!
Robyn: DAMIEN (Slater Brothers Book 5) by LA Casey is the last of the Slater Bro books. …Read these books. They are hilarious and sweet and romantic. All the brothers are Alpha and the women they love are kickass and give, them a run for their money!
- Cake by Carmen Jenner <— FUNNY & LIGHT and LisafromDFW recommends it!
LisafromDFW: Recently I found Cake by Carmen Jenner in a new release post on here. It was funny and cute. Low angst but the MC loves cake! Who doesn’t love cake!?!?! Her name is Poppy and the hero calls her “Pop Tart”. She hates it so of course he keeps doing it. Fun read for a break from sad or stressful books. And KU!
- Bound and Broken Series: Complete Collection by Rebecca Shea <— LIVE!! SERIES BUNDLE ALERT!! “…He brought me back to life. He gave me strength and a safe place to land. And then he broke me…”
Malinda: Rebecca Shea is one of my favorite authors

- Rumors: Emerson & Ryder by Rachael Brownell <— LIVE!! OFFICE ROMANCE ALERT!! “…When long days turn into late nights with her boss, rumors about Emerson and Ryder begin to spread. By the time they circle back to her, they’re difficult to ignore, making her attraction to her boss hard to deny. Everyone has an opinion and no one cares if the rumors are true. No one except Emerson...”
- All the Stars in the Sky: Until the End of the World, Book 3 by Sarah Lyons Fleming <— TEARJERKER ALERT!! Tessa was put through the ringer with this one!
Amy: Tessa… I saw you read All the Stars in the Sky. YAY!!!!! It was a rough road to the end, right? But at least she didn’t break our hearts again.
Tessa: Amy, if *spoiler spoiler spoiler*… I’d have screamed. lol Also… *hands over slightly damp Manny* Uh… Seth made me cry. It was an awesome book, but I had tears!!!!
- Love Me With Lies Trilogy <— TARRYN FISHER OLD-SCHOOL INDIE ANGSTY LOVE STORY/LOVE TRIANGLE AWESOMENESS… and Maureen just discovered them!
Maureen: Thank you, thank you, thank you for recommending the Love Me With Lies trilogy!! Omg…that’s all I’ve got, just OMG!
- Long Shot: A HOOPS Novel by Kennedy Ryan <— LIVE!! FORBIDDEN LOVE ALERT!! This one just went live! “...I kissed the prince and he turned into a fraud. I was a fool, and his love – fool’s gold. Now there’s a new player in the game, August West. One of the NBA’s brightest stars. Fine. Forbidden. He wants me. I want him. But my past, my fraudulent prince, just won’t let me go…”
