Happy Friday my friends (and happy lunchtime, too)!!

Oh look! I made a list. I checked it twice. I’m gonna find out which ones are naughty and nice. *waggles eyebrows* Especially naughty!!! *winces* ;) Tee hee! Okay, listen… it’s too early in the day for my “corny humor”, I know.  I think I need another coffee.

But all that to say I am HIGHLY tempted by a few below, but not enough to sway me from the current AWESOME angst-fest that I’m happily drowning in. For those that have missed it, I’m in the midst of an “old school indie feel” series, that gives me that “Thoughtless/Beautiful Disaster” falling in love torment, and I couldn’t be happier! Wanna read my review of book #1? —> Book Review – Bad Things by R.K. Lilley (Tristan & Danika #1)

Not that the ones tempting me, on this list, aren’t gonna be AS awesome as what I’m reading now, but I think it’s a testament to this book —> (Rock Bottom (Tristan & Danika #2), when I can’t even be *squirreled* away from it. In fact, it’s going to KILL me, I know it. Even Liz said so:

Liz: I nearly died reading book 2 – hard, but really good.

Jean: Oh Maryse, I am so happy you are loving this series! Hate to say “I told you so”, but…….hahahaha;) Hold on tight, the rollercoaster has just started! Love, love, love this series so much!!!!!!!

THAT reaction is EXACTLY what I’m looking for in my reads. THAT kind of emotion… that kind of heartache, those stomach dips!! I’m a sucker for punishment, but I know it’s gonna be SO gooooooood!!!!! *Oh I’m wayyyy too eager for that “rocking myself in the corner” reaction*

So, once I get over my angst-fest, what’s next for me?

Maybe Someday <— HECK YAH!!!!! This one sounds right up our alley!! And then, I need to continue with my Kathleen Turner Series (I know I’m gonna regret squirreling on this one, ’cause it’s gonna get crazy, too!!), Spin (Songs of Corruption #1) (Especially after THOSE recommendations, below), The Other Sister (intriguing storyline!! My aunt LOVED it, and she has similar book tastes), and Too Consumed (MMA FIGHTER!! *heart*)

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). :)

  • Too Consumed (Consumed Series Book 2) by Skyla Madi <—- FIGHTER BOOK ALERT!! EEEEEEEEEP!!! (this is book #2, just recently released)! Considering how much I enjoyed book #1, I totally one-clicked it! (Here’s my review of #1)
  • Like You (Perfectly Flawed Series) by Rachel Dunning <— handsome cover – thanks Aimee! Just a couple of reviews, though, so far,  and I’m not able to get much of a gauge by that blurb…
  • The Other Sister (Sister Series, #1) by Leanne Davis <— My aunt recommends these!!! She’s quite passionate about ‘em, in fact: “What are you looking for in a book?! Fear, rage, angst, love, big tall heroes, tears of joy and tears of sadness, anxiety of what will the next page hold, quick, let’s get there, and then it’s 3am and you HAVE to go to sleep, argh! What book has all that. “The other sister” and “The good sister”! Wow. Be ready for a roller coaster of emotions. That’s all I have to say.” <— WHOA. I just read the blurb and it DOES sound sooooo up our alley!
  • The Good Sister (Sister Series, #2) by Leanne Davis <— Here’s book #2, but I won’t read the synopsis so as not to spoil #1 for me. I’m definitely putting these on my TBR ASAP!
  • Outlaw by Nicole James <— BIKER BOOK ALERT! Kandace says: “Outlaw by Nicole James is on sale. I read this one last year and enjoyed the story. It’s an MC-ish story that has a few twists.” Hey yah, I read this one, too! I think I was looking for more hardcore biker intensity so I didn’t go crazy like I wanted to, but… Still a fun biker-read if you’re in the mood for a quick and easy romance read that delves into badder-than-bad-boy territory, without it getting too intense. (my review)
  • Lover Uncloaked (Stealth Guardians #1) by Tina Folsom <— many fans of this author, in our group… from back in my paranormal days!! Book #1 in a new series!
  • Winters Heat (Titan #1) by Cristin Harber <— I’m hearing good things about this series! Victoria says: “For those that enjoy romantic suspense I can’t recommend enough Cristin Harber’s new Titan series. I’ve read book one and two and both were five star reads for me! Colby from Winter’s Heat has some very yummy alpha tendencies! One of the best new series I’ve read EVER!”
  • The Color of Hope (The Color of Heaven Series) by Julianne MacLean <— from the blurb it looks like a deeper book/mystery/romance.
  • Forgive Me by Ashley Beale <— Recent release, sounds interesting by the blurb (from reviews appears to need editing…) She’s been gone for ten years… “Lexi now has to explain to her family why at only twenty four years old she has a nine year old son. She also has to explain to Zander how he is unknowingly a father after all these years, and how her feelings never changed even with all this time apart.  Two weeks before he is about to get married.”
  • Borrowed Dreams (Debbie Macomber Classics) by Debbie Macomber <— sale priced! I love this author’s “movies” (LOL!) so this one definitely intrigues me… “Tough and adventurous, she journeys to the wilds of Alaska looking for a new beginning. She finds more than she bargained for in Brand St. Clair, a rugged bush pilot who stirs something primal inside Carly that shocks her with its intensity. But he’s also a man with wounds, a widower stuck in the past. Carly desires him deeply, but she can’t compete with a dead woman for a place in his heart.” Oh wow… I just noticed many of her books are on sale!
  • Falling For A Stranger (Callaways #3) by Barbara Freethy <—”Drew Callaway is a former Navy pilot and rescue operative looking for his own escape from a life that has seen too much tragedy. Meeting Ria is like embracing the sun, and their single night together is life-changing. But the dream quickly fades when Ria is killed in a tragic accident at sea. Months later, thousands of miles away from where they first met, Drew sees a woman who looks just like Ria…” <— WHOA.
  • Wild Heat by Bella Andre <— FIREFIGHTER ALERT!! “Maya Jackson doesn’t sleep with strangers. Until the night grief sent her to the nearest bar and into the arms of the most explosive lover she’s ever had. Six months later, the dedicated arson investigator is coming face-to-face with him again. Gorgeous, grinning Logan Cain. Her biggest mistake. Now her number one suspect in a string of deadly wildfires.
PRE-ORDERS (highly anticipated ones, coming this Tuesday!!)

Love, Chocolate and Beer is .99 today. I’m sold on the title alone. Oh and Beauty from Pain is FREE today as well! Thanks for the list!

Jeanie V. March 14, 2014 at 11:46 AM

35% into The Ice Seduction – very Jane Eyre-ish. I hope this book surprises me – anybody finished this???

Mertxe March 14, 2014 at 12:26 PM

Tijan is fantastic!!! I loved Fallen Crest series and The Alterno version posted in her facebook. I’m re-reading all her books. I love all them!!!!

Amy March 14, 2014 at 12:57 PM

Oh, it is a happy Friday indeed when most of the books listed above I have *not* already one-clicked. That doesn’t happen often. ;)

I finished the Up In the Air series – Maryse, James is a naughty boy with a potty mouth! – and I’m now starting on Tristan & Danika. Just from what little there was of them in Grounded, I can tell this is gonna be *intense*!!

So, anyone who has read/is reading T&D, what’s the angst on a level of 1 to 10? Or what book(s) would you compare it to? I have a bottle of merlot and a bottle of Grey Goose, and I need to know which one to have ready. :P

Kristi March 14, 2014 at 1:10 PM

Ooh Maryse, you have to read The Other Sister..that book has everything and more. I loved it..though i hated some parts but you’ll understand why when you read it

Maryse March 14, 2014 at 1:36 PM

LOL Amy. I’m thinking Grey Goose is in order. Merlot for 1st, and 2nd should kill us, so you know… ;)

Maryse March 14, 2014 at 1:36 PM

Yay Kristi! Thank you for that!!!

Laura March 14, 2014 at 1:44 PM

Maryse – Keep going on the Tristan/Danika series – oh so angsty! Just finished the last one – so, so good! Also, I have to mention, that K A Linde did not disappoint with her strong woman character in Off the Record and it had just the right amount of angst, plus Brady is swoon-worthy! She delivered and I was skeptical after loving her Avoiding series….don’t miss this one!

Jean March 14, 2014 at 2:13 PM

Amy and Maryse, you will need AT LEAST 2 bottles of the Grey Goose! Haha! And now, since I finished Lovely Trigger, I am in a major book funk and don’t know what to start next….Maybe the Driven series….hmmm….. Any suggestions?

And Amy, I would definitely have to compare it to the Thoughtless series in angst level because I could not stop thinking about it, replaying it in my head, and getting those ridiculous pains in my stomach!

Kirstyn March 14, 2014 at 3:15 PM

Beyond Jealousy by Kit Rocha is out Monday. Love that series and have been anticipating this book for months now.

Dana March 14, 2014 at 7:21 PM

I got butterflies in my tummy reading the blurb for ‘the other sister’, definitely going to be my next read…..

Amy March 14, 2014 at 7:38 PM

Maryse, do I ever know. ;) And Jean, Thoughtless-level angst? Oh yeah, it’s on. So, looks like merlot for book 1 and *two* bottles of Grey Goose, one each for books 2 and 3. Midori martinis it is. Wahoo! An early St. Paddy’s for me this weekend!!

Louise Pion March 16, 2014 at 3:03 PM

Maryse, you forgot to mention the release of Picking up the Pieces by Elizabeth Hayley! It is the sequel of Pieces of perfect it is still so well written, full of fun, twists and turns! Totally right up your alley!
