in eBook Deals

<— This brand spankin’ new release is LOADED in full length books. Twelve of ‘em! Many “hits” from some of our favorite authors, all bundled together at an amazing price. Definitely the deal of the day!

Plus, we have a ton more below, including new releases and a bunch of “lighter & funnier” romance recommendations and HIGHLY anticipated pre-orders for Tuesday! And some of my own personal 5-star favorites are listed below, like “Surviving Raine” (my fav alpha-jerk) and  Me Before You (I will NEVER forget this one! LOVED!!). Oh! And The Dark Light of Day (raw and gritty!). My reviews are linked up below next to ‘em if you want to check them out.

And, here are a few that I wanted to highlight right now, that have me excited to try ‘em. Like… Coming Home (most highly and frequently recommended book this week!). Finding You (angsty looking “bad boy” love triangle), The Rosie Project (another often recommended funny looking one that I’m in the mood for), Heights of Desire (<— sounds seriously tumultuous – married woman and a gang member), A Woman Gone Mad (<— also sounds married and tumultuous although I can’t confirm if that’s the case until I read it), and A Girl By Any Other Name (because OMG! Imagine…?? Alos sounds like it’s got angst potential!)

Yep. My one-clicker is getting exercised today. Bikers, bad boys, military heroes, alpha-jerks and tear-jerkers! ;) How could I resist? Tee hee!! Oh and I finished two books over the course of the last 2 days (Used) and Mine to Lose and will be putting up the reviews shortly. :)

NOTE: bargain priced when I added them, but prices can change on Amazon, so make sure to check before you finalize your order.

P.S. Let me know if I’m missing any or if you loved any (from this list or elsewhere). :)

Todays latest reader recommendations and bargain ebook finds:

  • Surviving Raine by Shay Savage <— one of my ABSOLUTE favorites, and Sally just found out that…. “Good Morning all you ladies out in Maryse Land  If you haven’t read Shay Savage’s Surviving Raine yet there will be a drop in price at some point today. It’s not a sale, but an actual price drop.The only way I can sum it up would be to think of it as On the Island but much more gritty, raw & sexy. Sebastian Stark is one of a kind as are all of Shay’s men. It is a must read and a book many of us here loved including Maryse!“<— She is SO right about that!! And Lori agrees: “I loved this one!! one of my favorites. He’s such an ass! LOL” :D I love when the alphas are asses at first.

Kiss the Sky was so awesome! And I can’t wait for more reapers MC!!

Maryse January 24, 2014 at 2:22 PM

I’ve been hearing a lot of enthusiasm or Kiss the Sky, too! Reality TV is always full of drama so I’m definitely wanting to read this!

Maryse January 24, 2014 at 2:22 PM

And of course more Reapers!! YAY US!!! (and finally!)

Amy January 24, 2014 at 2:49 PM

I started Holding On (LOP) last night, and so far I am loving it. I am (excitedly) bracing myself after all I have heard of it. Is angst addicting? Heh, I’ll embrace that addiction. ;)

I was just thinking of being in junior high sneaking around to read Flowers in the Attic and how “naughty” it felt. :P Good lord, that was so tame compared to what I read now! I love knowing I have kindred spirits here. :)

Maryse January 24, 2014 at 2:54 PM

You are in GOOD (naughty… but good) company here Amy. :P

Kellie January 24, 2014 at 2:55 PM

More Than This by Jay McLean is also on sale this weekend for .99. It’s the first in an amazing series. Book 3 comes out on Tuesday. I LOVE this series!!! If you like books that really make you FEEL then you’ll love it.

MJ Fryer January 24, 2014 at 3:13 PM

Coming Home was off the charts amazing and beautiful and A Woman Gone Mad is nothing like I’ve ever read before. You must check it out…you will be blown away. Truly.

Daniela Rodriguez January 24, 2014 at 3:15 PM

A woman gone mad by Kimber S Dawn is amazing!! Such an amazing read, very real and raw! 5 plus stars!

Felecia Hickman January 24, 2014 at 3:22 PM

I’m still on a extreme A Woman Gone Mad high.
This book isn’t just a excellent read is a mind blowing experience.
I read this 3 days ago and my heart still races everytime I think about it. This should be a definite read.

Jean January 24, 2014 at 4:00 PM

Wow, just 1-clicked like crazy and I was so proud of myself for not buying any books the last 2 days!! One good thing, when I went to 1-click Me Before You, I had already bought it back in August….need to get to that one (and so many others)!!!!

Jill January 24, 2014 at 4:23 PM

Can someone PLEASE tell me if the alpha in Surviving Raine redeems himself or at least becomes somewhat likable? (without giving anything away) Maryse, you had me and then you said he is still an ass!!! Ugh… what does that mean? I love men who are alpha and mean and d**k-ish like and you are ‘grrr-ing’ at his behavior and thinking walk away girl – aka: Kristen Ashley’s men. ;) However, they redeem themselves in their own alpha way… But from some comments this doesn’t really happen with this guy… ?!? I’m so conflicted. Would love an answer so I know whether to start this tonight or not! :) Thanks!

^^ sorry I rambled and don’t have time to correct it. ;)

Jean January 24, 2014 at 4:33 PM

I don’t know if I would say “redeems” himself….. he does “come around”….but you really should read this book!! It is awesome, and I know a lot of us are waiting for a follow-up (not that there is a cliffhanger)! He is just one of those jerks you want to hug and having the story told in his point of view is just priceless!

Maryse January 24, 2014 at 4:34 PM

Jill… let’s just say… I love him with ALL of my heart. LOVE!!! L-O-V-E love and I would totally re-read it to get that feeling again. ;)

Maryse January 24, 2014 at 4:34 PM

He’s like a mix of Dex and Travis for me, for some reason. Just… something about him, that resonated THEM (and they are my 2 #1′s).

Maryse January 24, 2014 at 4:35 PM

Thanks to all of you who’ve come on to let me know your favs in the list!! I MUST start that “gone mad” one asap!

Maryse January 24, 2014 at 4:36 PM

Jean.. I couldn’t have said it any better myself. :D

Anna January 24, 2014 at 4:39 PM

I’ve recently read “A Woman Gone Mad” by Kimber S. Dawn. and lemme tell you…it’s a train wreck! of emotions!!!! JUST ALL MY EMOTIONS! Everywhere! and Leo…don’t even get me started on Leo. Give it a read, you won’t regret it!

Lauren January 24, 2014 at 4:40 PM

FYI….Finding You (The Bad Boy Series) is a MAJOR cliffhanger. It actually came out in Aug & I’ve been going crazy waiting for the next 1.

Lauren January 24, 2014 at 4:42 PM

Doesn’t the Surviving Raine sequel come out soon? She said early 2014. That’s another book 2 that’s taken a while.

Milissa Davis January 24, 2014 at 5:48 PM

Ok beyond Ransome is a book everyone should read… It keeps u on the edge of you’re seat the whole time..

Michelle January 24, 2014 at 6:15 PM

I second the praise for The Rosie Project. I love the drama & angst right sling with all of you, but in between I need some humor or just plain ole’ snarky or something. This fit the bill. If you read the sample & aren’t hooked, I’d be surprised. I seriously peed myself reading the totally new take on romantic comedy. One of my faves this year, so far, and I’m typically a alpha male, biker, rocker, good chemistry girl.. But this worked for me.

Jackie January 24, 2014 at 6:48 PM

I also just found Sempre on sale for 0.99.

Jill January 24, 2014 at 9:27 PM

Thank you, Maryse and Jean!!! You’ve sold me. Especially when you mentioned Dex. ;) He wasn’t real lovable/likable at times in the first book, but I STILL loved/love him. So I’m going in! :) thanks again!

Sharon January 24, 2014 at 9:52 PM

Me Before You by Jo Jo Moyes is one of the best books I have ever read. After reading it on my Kindle I had to order a paper copy so I could put it on my bookshelf. So good and thought provoking.

Linda January 25, 2014 at 11:40 AM

Hey guys for anyone interested I just picked up Reapers Legacy last night at Books a million. I have it on pre order but I couldn’t resist. I swear I turned to leave the romance aisle with my copy of This Man Confessed cuz I love Jesse Ward so much I need him in print as well. Anywaaay after I managed to pick my chin up off the floor and focus I greedily grabbed my copy and ran to the nearest cashier with a giddy satisfied smile.:-)

KellyG January 25, 2014 at 7:05 PM

What book or books is the character Dex in that I’ve seen mentioned a few times? Doesn’t sound familiar to me and if he’s loved as much as Travis I’m very interested in reading.

Melissa January 25, 2014 at 7:32 PM

Dex is in the Experiment in Terror series by Karina Halle. These books are really fun reads, the main characters have great banter and awesome chemistry. I don’t usually read PN but EIT is great!!!! You’ll want to read them back to back without stopping; they are so good!!!

Lirpafu January 25, 2014 at 9:40 PM

Just finished Coming Home and I’m so sad I finished it so quickly. I couldn’t stop! The story is wonderful, the writing beautiful. Do yourself a favor and move this one up to the top of your TBR list. You won’t be sorry.

Kristen January 26, 2014 at 3:56 PM

I cannot recommend The Rosie Project enough! Although I love stories riddled with angst and steam, sometimes I just need a break from the roller coaster yah know? :) This book is every bit a satisfying as a bad boy/tear jerker/love triangle, but in a superbly written and refreshingly different way. This should be your next read when you’re craving something different and need a palate cleanser!

Lisa M January 26, 2014 at 4:34 PM

I love weekends!!!! Read 3 books this weekend so far!! Not sure if I will start another. I read Saving Dallas, Saving Dallas -Making the Cut by Kim Jones and Remembering Us by Stacey Lynn. Loved all 3 books so much. Amazing stories cant say enough about them. Can’t wait for Saving Dallas Forever!! When is it coming out? What should I read next??? Bought Kiss Kiss such a great deal!!

Lindsay January 27, 2014 at 9:45 AM

The first four books of the Kathleen Turner Series are on sale for 1.99. I cannot recommend this series enough!

Jean January 27, 2014 at 11:09 AM

I have been eyeing up the Kathleen Turner Series for a while now….I seem to recall the books being highly priced, so I assume this is good pricing for the first four books….?!?

Georgia January 27, 2014 at 1:32 PM

Finished .. ” In Bed with Mr. Wrong’ . It steamy, funny and soo sweet. It’s a quick read but very good. I’m on long plane ride this weekend on business. so I’m looking forward to ” Surviving Raine” and the last two books in ” Experimnet in Terror” . It will make the long plane ride painless. Thanks again Maryse!

Jean January 27, 2014 at 2:22 PM

Wow……read A Woman Gone Mad on Saturday in one sitting….could not put it down…..and I am still thinking about it……….
