Another list of great looking bargains and reader suggestions below including four books that have me excited! I want to read There is No Light in Darkness and Darkness Before Dawn by Claire Contreras AND I Hope You Find Me and Lost and Found (Find Me Series) by Trish Marie Dawson (<—I hear these are horror, but at the same time, I’m wondering if they might have a touch of romance? *fingers crossed*). Either way, I think these might just be what I’m looking for in a “reading-change”.  I’m looking for … *something*. I don’t know what exactly, just that it needs to give me that reading-adrenaline rush.

So, yep. I think THIS will be this week’s TBR list, for me.

Here was last week’s TBR list but I’m re-arranging to add the one’s above, to the top it: ;)

You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me, (done! Here is my reviewNever Smile at Strangers, #1)Tangled (The Tangled Series) (done! Here is my review), Driven (The Driven Trilogy)Allure: A Spiral of Bliss Novel (Book Two)The Heart Has Reasons <— I hear this one’s crazy!!) and Sleeping in Eden: A Novel <— this one is not bargain priced so I’m in sample mode for now…

(and of course there are about 5 others that are hovering in the top half of my TBR list and could easily “next” if my mood matches the synopsis ;) ) —> The Life List (The List Trilogy) being one of them…

Bargain Finds & Reader Recommendations!

  • Obsession by Jennifer L. Armentrout (the spinoff in her LUX series)—> OMG!!!!!! I LOVE THIS SERIES and this one just came out today. (thanks Amber!!)
  • Because of You (Playing with Fire, #2) by T.E. Sivec <— Nancy just pointed out this awesome price drop.
  • Darkness Before Dawn (book#2 is out right now!!!) by Claire Contreras
  • There is No Light in Darkness (Darkness Series) by Claire Contreras <— this is book #1 to the book above, and ends on a serious cliffhanger. But that’s okay! Book #2 is right there waiting! Now I can read it, too. Jules just read it saying: “Loved There Is No Light In Darkness! It had angst, love, mystery and suspense. The story hooked me from the start and I couldn’t stop reading it to find out what happened. We still don’t know the whole story at the end of the book. Huge cliffhanger but the sequel comes out in a few days. 4.5 stars for me.”
  • Afflicted (Battlescars II) (Battlescars: A Rock & Roll Romance) by Sophie Monroe (thanks Tricia!)
  • Beautifully Twisted by Jennifer Domenico <— Aimee says “dropped back down today”
  • Girl with Guitar (Kylie Ryans) by Caisey Quinn <— Janet loved this one except she wants book #2 now —>”Girl With Guitar was really good, up until the last page where it walks you into part 2 and ends. Damn, I wish I knew. Not a half a book cliffhanger, but a set up that shows the next one looks to be good, and I would have liked to read it NOW”
  • The Art of Submission (REVISED) (The Art of D/s) by Ella Dominguez <— Stephanie found us this one! “The Art of Submission (The Art of D/s) by Ella Dominguez. On Sale”
  • Everything Changes by Shey Stahl <— Tricia found us this deal!
  • Safe Word by Teresa Mummert <— this just recently release book (thanks Jennifer!) – also, a few of our fellow readers are having a love/hate relationship with this one: Sally: “… I was so ready, itching, wanting to give this book a great star rating, but unfortunately I have to give it 3.5 stars (because like I said I loved it up until the very end), and it really would of have been a 4.5 for me. Still shaking my head!” and Meghan agrees: “Sally – I am glad I am not the only one who felt that way!!! It had so so so much potential to be so so so great!”
  • A Different Blue by Amy Harmon <— this is the one I’m reading right now (halfway through).
  • Sweet Thing by Renee Carlino <— this one is still sale priced and is one of my absolute favorites this year!
  • Don’t Say A Word by Barbara Freethy <— this one looks so good, and it’s been very high up in the top Amazon 100 list.
  • Silent Run (Sanders Brothers #1) by Barbara Freethy <— woman wakes up with no memory, and a missing daughter (and an “ex” that is furious with her)… mystery romance
  • Surrender by Melody Anne <— Wealthy man has a “no strings attached” mistress…
  • Submit (Surrender Series Book Two) by Melody Anne <— here’s the sequel of the one book above…
  • The Exception To The Rule by Beth Rinyu —> Kathy found us this one: “Has great reviews.” – and it does look good. The end of that synopsis got me.
  • Forever You (Forever Black #2) by Sandi Lynn <— Kirsten announced this sequel that’s just been released!!
  • Forever Black by Sandi Lynn <— This was the first book…
  • A Needful Heart (Contemporary Romance) by J.M. Madden —> Stephanie found us this one “A Needful Heart (Contemporary Romance) by J.M. Madden - Price dropped” and Sherri said: “Loved this book!A big fat 5 star.”
  • My Side by Tara Brown <— Tricia found us this deal and I must admit the “roommates” angle in the synopsis got me!! Tiffany says: “LOVED this BOOK!!! Good Stuff!!”
  • Lost and Found by Nicole Williams <— I keep hearing how awesome this one is!
  • STRIPPED by Brooklyn Skye <— looks good and super-angsty!!
  • Unbreak Me by Lexi Ryan —> Georgia says: “Ok ladies I found a good one, Unbreak Me by Lexi Ryan.”
  • Sexy Berkeley (Sexy Series) by Dani Lovell <— Janet says: “Just read Sexy Berkeley by Dani Lovell. It’s a really good funny British edgier than chick lit romance…It’s long and stand alone.”
  • Spring Training: A Game On Novel by Parker Kincade <– baseball star
  • I Hope You Find Me by Trish Marie Dawson <— Madeline LOVED this one: “WOW!! I just finished reading “I hope you find me” by Trish Marie Dawson. Anyone read that book? What a suspense page turner horror book.” and Angelia agreed: “I LOVED that book!! Fin broke my heart though.” and guess what!!?? There’s a book #2! Are these the books that will adrenalize me? Give me that jolt I’ve been craving?
  • Lost and Found (Find Me Series) by Trish Marie Dawson <— here is book #2!
  • Stagepass (Sex, Love, and Rock & Roll) by Stevie Kisner –

If you haven’t read it already, Unbreak Me should go on your tbr list as well! It was great! Lots of angst – though not all relationship related – and plenty of love and longing, plus revealed secrets and a hot and sweet guy. It would be a good beach/pool read. :)

Lisa M May 31, 2013 at 11:28 AM

I read Silent Run. Great story coudn’t put it down.

CaroleDee May 31, 2013 at 11:30 AM

Sadie May 31, 2013 at 12:00 PM

Allure – LOVED. There’s No Light in Darkness is also really good. How is A Different Blue so far? I started it the other night but have had no time to read. I really want to read Lost & Found. Thanks!!

Maryse May 31, 2013 at 2:32 PM

Sadie it’s really good but not keeping me up all night as of yet. I’m 50% in and I think it’s gonna get there. ;) GREAT writing, but so far I have been able to put it down.

Lisa May 31, 2013 at 2:42 PM

Rock And A Hard Place by Angie Stanton is only $.99 and normally it’s $3.99. This has neen on my tbr list for awhile, so maybe I need to bump it up now. Its YA but sometimes I’m in the mood for those. Like you Maryse, I’m looking fo something….. Hopefully this or somethng on your list will be it. Thnx Maryse. :)

Jem May 31, 2013 at 3:42 PM

Kathy P May 31, 2013 at 5:59 PM

Loved Loved Loved Rock and a Hard Place. It is a YA novel but it was so good. There is also a second book by this author that is about his brother. Definitely worth the download!

I have Sooo many books I want to read to start my summer off right!!! Thanks for all your awesome reccs! I just read the Chocolate Lovers book 1 and really needed that wonderfully funny yet love story with laughter all the way through! My Kindle is already full of Samples so I don’t loose track of what I want to read!! My 18 hr car trip to Florida will fly by with great reads… Besides all these reads I think everyone has to read the Chocolate Lovers series for a good laugh…

Kellie June 1, 2013 at 6:54 PM
