Guess what I started? A new book by Rachel Robinson called “Frog Hog”!! LOL! What a title. 😛 It’s scheduled to come out in a week (I’m thinking maybe even sooner, due to Amazon and their “going live early” surprises). And what really attracted me to this one, is it’s about a woman that ONLY *ahem* “dates” (<— you can deduce from my sarcasm exactly what I mean by that) Navy Seals. NO other man will due (and she’ll even shoot down the “new guys”). Yep. She’s got a bad reputation amongst the crew, even though they certainly take her up on her offers.
And now she’s hoping to find one to settle down with for good, but with that kind of reputation… well. You can imagine. 😉 It’s definitely a neat perspective (since usually the “groupies” are referred to, in books, and are minor characters, but in this one, SHE IS the main character). I’m only a quarter of the way in, but I should have a review today or tomorrow!
In the meantime…
Take a look at what we found! (NOTE: some are bargain priced when I added them, but prices can change on Amazon, so make sure to check before you finalize your order. Sales listed are for Amazon U.S., however some of the Amazon UK links also reflect the sale!):
- What You Wish For by Gina Wynn <— LIVE!!! SHE WAKES UP TO AN ALTERNATE REALITY (and a different husband)... “When Maggie Forrester wakes up naked in bed with her boss, iceman Will Brian, she’s sure it must be a dream. Or a feverish hallucination at the very least. But magic takes over when she begins to experience an impossible other life—complete with an alternate husband—and she’s forced to confront the reality of the man she loves versus the man she’s fallen in love with…”
- Blinded (Breaking Free Book 1) by <— LIVE!!! HER CUSTOMER JUST HAPPENS TO BE A FAMOUS MOVIE STAR ALERT! “Alex fell for Gabe Stevens before he opened his mouth. His striking green eyes and easy style had her tripping over her coffee pot the minute she laid eyes on him. But he was more than just a pretty face. Her good-looking customer just happened to be a rising movie star on the fast track to fame…”
- Yes, Prime Minister by Aria Cole <— LIVE!!! FOR THOSE THAT HAVE A CRUSH ON THE CANADA PM 😉 She’s had a hard life, and now just landed her dream job, working for the Prime Minister! “Growing up on the wrong side of the tracks requires grit, and Juliette Alexandre has it in spades. She’s worked tooth and nail for every accomplishment she’s earned, which is why she is zero percent interested in the perfectly round, incredibly taut, viral-worthy assets of her new boss, Prime Minister Gallagher…”
- The Rebellion by S.L. Scott <— LIVE!!! S.L. SCOTT’S LATEST ROCK STAR ALERT!!! “His career took off almost as soon as he did. I knew it would. I just thought I would be beside him as his partner in crime, best friend, and lover. That’s what we had always been … before he left me behind to fend for myself. Fend? Fight is more like it…”
- Wicked Abyss (Immortals After Dark) by Kresley Cole <— KRESLEY COLE’S LATEST & WE HAVE FEEDBACK!!! Ela LOVED IT!
MichelleS: OMG – Kresley Cole FLT – Report back soon on Wicked Abyss. Waiting for some honest feedback.
Ela: Wicked Abyss WAS AWESOME AND VERY VERY CLEVER OUR LITTLE NIXIE IS GETTING WHILE SHE FEEDS HER BAT COTTON CANDY…
- Reginald (Spasm Rockers Book 2) by Niquel <— LIVE!!! HE’S A ROCK STAR AND THEN HE MET HER AND… “One night I let my guard down. One night changed everything. My bandmates were counting on me. Fame was knocking at my door. But temptation knocked a little harder and now I may be royally screwed—and not in a good way.”
- Vicious (Sinners of Saint) by L.J. Shen <— BULLY BOOK ALERT & Tessa is LOVING it!
Tessa: BULLY BOOK!!! I was up until after midnight just reading, not wanting to stop. Sadly, sleep took over. I saw a bunch of you had read it, but I’m really loving it. He’s such a JERK and I wanted to kick him so badly mutliple times. I do have one issue, and it would have been better revealed earlier rather than thrown in but… He’s a total jerk and you all know I love that.
- The Bridal Squad (The Enchanted Bridal Series Book 2) by Samantha Chase <— LIVE!!! “…It was one thing to just model in a weekly fashion show, it’s quite another to be the ones calling the shots and making future brides’ dreams come true. Their first client has them wondering if they’re really prepared for their new roles!” I read a review that says even if you didn’t read book #1, you’ll be able to follow this one.
- The Family : The Spitfire Book 4 by Jordan Silver <— LIVE!!! It’s the series conclusion, so I’m not going to look, but it’s sky-rocketed up the Amazon charts already!
- The Dark Prince (The Dark Prince Series Book 1) by Autumn Winchester <— DARK READ ALERT!!! Tessa found us this one! And the whole trilogy is complete!! 😀
Tessa: The Dark Prince (The Dark Prince Series Book 1) by Autumn Winchester is free. It looked like a twisted dark book, so…. At the same time, it also sounds a little like Sempre by JM Darhower.
- Love Under Construction: The Complete Series by Deanndra Hall <— SUPER-BARGAIN PRICED SERIES BUNDLE ALERT! Lauren found us this one!
Lauren: Deanndra Hall’s Love Under Construction: The Complete Series is… right now!!!! Those books are usually $4.99 EACH!!!! Incredible deal!!
- The Light We Lost by Jill Santopolo <— SUPER-ANGSTY ALERT!! RECENT RELEASE & we have feedback!!
Lisa: I can definitely recommend The Light We Lost. It’s a bit marmy (like throw your Kindle, curse at the book marmy) but it was a beautiful story! …was a great book. It had one of those endings that had me glaring at my Kindle and yelling “nope, you’re not gonna do that to me”. So yeah, a little bit o’ angst…but a beautiful story!!
- Bound (Bound Duet Book 1) and Freed (Bound Duet Book 2) by Stephie Walls <— THIS DUET IS NOW COMPLETE, and book #1 was just released last month, and #2 was JUST RELEASED! “He has the carefree, playboy life he wants, The one he created and refuses to give up. But he didn’t count on me waltzing in and changing everything...”
- Blister by Jeff Strand <— DARK HUMOR HORROR (and that over *shudders*) but Amy and Fabi recommend it!
Amy: Ooh! You should read Blister if you don’t want scary. It has great dark humor. Totally out of the norm for me but I really liked it. Fabi did good. …Maryse…give Blister a try! It was SO out of the norm for me, and it was not at all what I expected. Fabi’s “humour noir” label is perfect for it. I was cracking up as often as I was cringing. I thought it was great!
Jean: I’m at 30% of Blister. I’m liking it so far. Jason is s very unique character and a lot of his inner thoughts having me grinning. No, not really horror but not sure where it’s going either. Yes, that whole incident with the dog in the beginning was kinda funny from his POV!
- Eyes On You: A Ghost Story by Steven Jenkins <— THEY ARE BEING HAUNTED IN THEIR NEW APARTMENT and their marriage is crumbling… It sounds SO good and it’s super-bargain priced. “Tormented by the wrath of this angry spirit, Matthew and Aimee’s relationship begins to crumble under the weight of their terror, and have no choice but to flee into the night, leaving their beloved flat behind. But you can never run from your past…because dark secrets have a way of hunting you down…”
For those going on a road trip soon, or maybe you’ve got some projects that require both hands this weekend but still allows you to “listen”… check out the free audible trial + 2 free audiobooks deal —>
- AND! Here’s the fun-tool again! —> Find out which of YOUR Kindle books are available as audiobooks at a BARGAIN-PRICE! <— This thing is so cool (Amazon calls it “Matchmaker“)! It’s an Amazon feature, that scans all of your Kindle books and will list all of the ones you have that are also available as an audiobook at a discounted price (not normal audiobook prices). This way, you can switch back and forth, seamlessly between your ebooks and your audiobooks. VERY COOL!
Ashley: I listen to audiobooks while I’m working and it’s amazing. I’m just being told a story all day long. I usually listen to them at a higher speed so that I can get through a whole book in my workday, it does take some getting used to – and you have to make sure the narrator is someone who you can listen to all day – but it’s worth it. The audible app on my phone is one of the best and most used thing ever.
