<—- WHAT WHAT WHAAAAATTTT!!!???? I know, right? I posted the pre-order “breaking news update” below. ;) Read it and cheer! No weeping, unless you’re weeping for joy. As I am. ;)

Today is another big release day (lots of surprise new releases) and another list where the majority is VERY new to me. But plenty of adamant recommendations and books that have excited SO many in today’s list and I can’t wait to taste-test a few. Some new releases that we already know about, I’ve brought back on this list ’cause we’re getting some great reader feedback!

The ones that have me curious & excited to try ‘em: Passionate Addiction (ROCK STAR!!), My Life for Yours (blurb hints at my kind of forbidden love!), Fierce/Unstoppable (great sounding synopsis – she’s a plus sized singer that won a spot on a singing contest show), Try (m/m romance and it seems to be rocking everyone’s world!), Collide (more m/m that I found by accident but it sounds SO good and intense), and Beautiful Broken Rules (our crew is LOVING this series and it sounds 100% up my alley) and… Okay, wait. At this rate, I just realized it seems like I’m pretty much putting this whole list on my TBR. LOL!!! And … in a way, I kind of did. ;) Let’s just say… I one-clicked a ton today.

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). :)

  • Fierce/Unstoppable Bundle by Ginger Voight <— TWO book bundled into one (it’s about a TV show singing contest, and a plus-sized singer trying to make it to the top!) book #3 (Epic) will be out any day now!! Shannon says: “ I have loved EVERYTHING that I have read by Ginger Voight!” and I agree. I’ve read Groupie & Rock Star and those books put my stomach in angsty romance knots!!! I couldn’t believe the hurt… but what do you expect when you fall for a rock star? Oh wow, I just read the synopsis of this and it looks so good! “The first two books of the “Fierce” trilogy, a spinoff of author Ginger Voight’s popular “Groupie” series. Jordi Hemphill is a plus-size singer with a larger than life voice. Her life is turned upside down when she wins her way onto a reality show called, “Fierce,” and the life of her dreams finally takes shape by winning the most popular boy from her hometown and her aloof mother’s attention. Things, however, are not what they seem. As she navigates this new, and tricky, terrain, a friend takes shape in the soldier who lost his leg in the war. He accepts Jordi in a way most cannot – and she doesn’t know how to accept the love he has to give.
  • Try (Temptation Series) by Ella Frank <— M/M book that is HIGHLY recommended like crazy by SO many on our Facebook page: Maria says: “Maryse you should try Try by Ella Frank!!! It was my first m/m book and it was so HOT!!! I love it!!!” and Jillian agrees: “I’m still in a book hangover from it… Finished it yesterday morning and NOTHING sounds good to read now. Still thinking about them.” and Kelly said: “You have to read it! Although it is hot and sexy as hell, it’s the relationship between them that killed me!” Yep!! I’m going to be on it!!
  • Collide (Blackcreek Series) by Riley Hart <— and while we’re on a m/m kick, here’s a new m/m release I just found (bargain priced with a GORGEOUS cover and a gorgeous sounding synopsis)… I want to read this.
  • Beautiful Broken Rules (Broken, Series #1) by Kimberly Lauren <— I just bought this one, too. After numerous recommendations like this one, I couldn’t help myself! Kandace says: “I’m not sure why I waited so long but I’m finally reading ‘Beautiful Broken Rules’ by Kimberly Lauren. I would give it 5+ stars. I’m in total book heaven right now. Everyone needs to read this one. I promise you’ll love it!! Oh, and the best part is, the second book in the series was released last week. I can’t wait to read Jace’s story next.” and Jillian agrees: “Read this book when it first came out! LOVED every minute of it!!!!! Couldn’t wait for Jace’s book. Think I will start his this weekend. Hopefully it will get me out of my book funk after finishing Try.”
  • Beautiful Broken Mess (Broken, Series #2)  by Kimberly Lauren <— And Ashley loved book #2! “I finished Beautifully Broken Mess by Kimberly Lauren at like 2am last night. Loved it!! I loved Beautifully Broken Rules (#1) and each are a standalone. Yes it’s NA, and yes it has some angst. It’s exactly the book I needed to read. I laughed and cried, smiled like a fool! I love how the authors takes the primary charcters from #1 and flows them smoothly into secondary characters in #2, she does it flawlessly. I still can’t decide which brother I love more Jax or Jace, but I’ll tell you I cannot wait for Lane’s book!!
  • Give Me Reason (The Reason Series) by Zoey Derrick <— Aimee found us this deal. “Vivienne Callahan has known only hardship. As if growing up with an alcoholic, drug addicted mother wasn’t traumatic enough, she’s escaped from her physically and verbally abusive boyfriend only to struggle every day to make ends meet as a waitress in a Minneapolis diner. Along comes Mikah Blake, a handsome stranger who quickly takes an unexpected and persistent interest in her. On the surface, “Mr. Suit” seems to be Vivienne’s opposite…“ Just a little over 100 pages but it looks like book #2 is out now too.
  • Give Me Hope (The Reason Series) by Zoey Derrick <— here’s book #2
  • Afterlife (Afterlife Saga #1) by Stephanie Hudson <— SO often adamantly recommended, this paranormal that is back on sale, two more books are already out after it, and book #4 will be out December 13th! Here is the reading order. Belisha says: “Best series ever…. And it’s 99cents” and Cara agrees: “I second this! Lol! Afterlife = blow your pants off amazing!” I’ve been in the mood for intense paranormal these days and I really need to get on this one!!! “So when the offer of a job at the infamous Gothic nightclub Afterlife comes along she thinks that lady luck has finally found her. That is until its seductively dark and forbidding owner Dominic Draven sets eyes on her.” Yep… sounds like my kinda thing!!
  • Otherwise Alone (Evan Arden) by Shay Savage <—  (thanks Lori) and one of my favorites this year. Short story, yes, but kind of an intro and still so good! In fact, everything by this author has been one of my favorites this year!! My Book Review
  • Otherwise Occupied (Evan Arden) by Shay Savage <— and #2 (this one is full length). my Book Review
  • Keep Me Still by Caisey Quinn <— Jennifer found us this  deal saying: “Just happened upon Keep Me Still by Caisey Quinn. It’s includes the prequel and sequel novellas! The synopsis sounds good she the reviews are great!” Oh yessss the reviews are crazy good! Right right right!! I remember when this one came out… “Layla Flaherty had the perfect life, or close to it. Until a stranger gunned her parents down right in front of her, leaving her with seizure inducing PTSD. After years of trying to pass as normal and failing miserably, she resigns herself to being invisible.
  • This Crazy Little Thing (A New Adult Billionaire Romance) by Tamryn Ward <— another deal with a fun sounding synopsis. Right up our alley but definitely a  different twist!!! Sounds just right for me! Jane Brown’s a normal girl… “Until…One wish leads to waking in Monica’s French lingerie…and her size-two body. It’s a dream come true–until she learns Monica’s life isn’t the fairytale Jane had always imagined. Well, with one exception: her ripped-from-the-pages-of-a-romance-novel billionaire ex-boyfriend, Jason Foxx. But could a guy like Jason fall in love with a regular girl like Jane…who looks like a girl like Monica?
  • A Game of Thrones: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book One by George R.R. Martin <— okay not our normal genre, but I got into the show right before Book Bash (I’ve only finished 1.5 seasons so far) and I’m excited to see book #1 is only $2.90 cents today!!! OVER 800 pages!!!
  • Infinite Possibilities (Contemporary New Adult) (The Secret Life of Amy Bensen #2) by Lisa Renee Jones <— Jules loved it! “The sequel didn’t disappoint. Suspenseful, mysterious and unpredictable. Filled with twists and turns, it kept me guessing the entire time. Can’t wait for Forsaken!” Cliffhanger? “Yes but it wasn’t a bad one like the first one. It was an amazing epilogue! So good.
  • Escaping Reality (New Adult contemporary Romance) (The Secret Life of Amy Bensen) by Lisa Renee Jones!
  • A Little Too Much by Lisa Desrochers <— this is book #2 (I still need to read it!!) but Kandace did, and she really liked it! She says: “The story is very complete. I just didn’t want them to end. The first story has a ton of love triangle angst. This book is the opposite. The angst comes from the secrets of their past. There is some humor but overall it is a story of two people trying to make amends with the weight off their past. They both have regrets and pain. I loved watching them slowly heal.”
  • A Little Too Far by Lisa Desrochers <— and this is book #1 (on sale right now) and IT ROCKED my world!!
  • Beautiful Player by Christina Lauren <— very popular series, and Bobbi loved the latest release! “I just finished Beautiful Player by Christina Lauren and loved it!!!”

Yep I am reading Try right now 66% in. I never thought I would ever read a m/m book but I absolutely love this author and I thought I’d give it a “Try” hehe ;) . And holy hell Maryse I absolutely am loving it! Damn this woman can write! You have got to read it!

Emily November 15, 2013 at 2:14 PM

I LOVE the “Beautiful Broken” series by Kimberly Lauren but I would absolutely recommend that you read “Beautiful Broken Rules” first because all the same characters are in “Beautiful Broken Mess” and you get the foundation for so much laid out in BBR. Did I mention TWINS!? ;) I loved BBM – looking forward to Lane’s story. Love your blog – thanks for all of the updates!

Marit November 15, 2013 at 2:31 PM

Oooh, can’t wait for the fourth book in the Afterlife saga!

Marit November 15, 2013 at 2:34 PM

Maryse November 15, 2013 at 3:43 PM

Maryse November 15, 2013 at 3:44 PM

Marit, yes, I’m thinking of giving these a go soon!

Maryse November 15, 2013 at 3:45 PM

Kristina. I had no clue there was a twist. This is HIGH on my TBR!!!

Sally November 15, 2013 at 5:15 PM

Stephanie November 15, 2013 at 9:19 PM

Anyone else notice the pic/girl for the covers of Infinite Possibilities and Fixated on you are the SAME? I only noticed bc I downloaded both today.

Erin M November 15, 2013 at 9:37 PM

I noticed Stephanie…I did a double take. I just read Infinate Possibilities…I thought maybe there was another…lol

Thanks Maryse…lots of good ones!!! What to choose next??? Hmmmm

Jennifer November 15, 2013 at 10:29 PM

Loved Try!!! I hadn’t read m/m romance before recommendations on your website….opened a whole new world! Love Abigail roux’s series but this one was HOT! Will definitely read more of Ella frank! Also highly recommend the Afterlife Saga! Great story and characters.

BHubby November 16, 2013 at 4:12 AM

I cannot wait for December to come!! Afterlife Saga is phenomenal!!
It’s unpredictable! Wild! Full of luscious men! The Quarter Moon comes out on 13th December!! I’m so excited!!

Kristen November 16, 2013 at 7:42 AM

Maryse- Having not read either Beautiful Disaster or Walking Disaster, I’m thinking I’d rather read the story from Travis’ point of view. Why? ‘Cause I’ve gotten overloaded on the heroine’s POV, lately. Can I *start* with Walking Disaster? Or, read it *instead* of Beautiful Disaster? I know this is blasphemy, but indulge me. :)

Stephanie Hudson November 16, 2013 at 7:57 AM

Hi all, just wanted to say a big thank you to all the Dravenites out there for all your support shouting about the Afterlife saga and of course a massive thank you to Maryse for adding Afterlife to your blog, I hope you enjoy it :)

Happy Reading all x

Georgia November 16, 2013 at 8:05 AM

I would suggest Beautiful Disaster first… Even though your tired of the herione’s POV it’s totally worth it and I promise you’ll be swooning for Travis….and eager to read his POV next .

Linda November 16, 2013 at 9:38 AM

Ladies I was up until 2:30am this morning completing Neighbor from Hell series Truce. Holy Hell what a delicious series. Loved ALL of them. Over the past couple weeks I’ve one clicked like a mad woman but really wanted to stay focused and also complete Dream Man and Colorado Mountain series because of all the consistent recommendations on your wonderful blog Maryse. Not sure what to go to next. Maybe Mine:-)

Linda November 16, 2013 at 10:57 AM

Needless to say I’ve been in book heaven reading these series of books. I don’t want them to end:-)

Ginger November 16, 2013 at 5:54 PM

Thanks so much for the mention! All Groupie fans will find their favorite characters crossing over to the new books (more Vanni and Graham, all the way to the end of the new book,) but you don’t have to read the Groupie series first. :D

Maryse November 16, 2013 at 6:17 PM

Sally, it is my pleasure!! I use this list, too! ;)

Maryse November 16, 2013 at 6:18 PM

Erin, I ended up reading the OTHER m/m book on the list, “Collide” and I fell in love at the same time as they did. LOVED it! 4 stars, and I’ll write my review this evening… I’m thinking of reading another m/m. I’m in the mood!

Maryse November 16, 2013 at 6:18 PM

Stephanie, yep!! Stock photos often find themselves on multiple book covers… it’s a gorgeous one, though!

Maryse November 16, 2013 at 6:19 PM

Thanks for the Afterlife Saga advice girls!! I will be giving it a go shortly.

Maryse November 16, 2013 at 6:20 PM

Kristen… I would recommend Beautiful Disaster first. I can’t imagine not starting with that one, as that’s one of the main ones that pretty much started me on my LOVE for bad boy books, and I dunno. I just LOVED being Abby… I got to experience Travis from HER eyes. FUN! Although yessssss she will drive you crazy at times.

Maryse November 16, 2013 at 6:21 PM

Linda I can’t wait to read Truce!!!! A nice historical will be a great change!

Maryse November 16, 2013 at 6:21 PM

Thanks for that series help, Ginger!

Kristen November 17, 2013 at 6:30 AM

If you’re seriously going to try another m/m book, then I have to recommend “Starfish and Coffee.” It’s by one of your favs, Kele Moon!

Lindsay November 17, 2013 at 11:43 AM

I just finished reading TRUCE and I really enjoyed it! It really took me back to the day when I first read Playing for Keeps. you just can’t help to fall in love with these foul mouthed Bradford men. Ladies read it, you will not be disappointed!

Lisa M November 26, 2013 at 8:41 AM

I just finished the Afterlife Series!! I just loved it!!! Yeah and book 4 is coming out in December!! I won’t have to wait too long!!! I think I am really liking these paranormal books!!! Next up Blood Shadows after I catch up on my life around the house and work that has been so neglected!!!
