  2. Strong Enoughby Melanie Harlow and David Romanov <— M/M ROMANCE ALERT!!…He’s smart, successful, and sexy as hell—I can barely sleep knowing he’s right down the hall. And when the chemistry between us explodes one night with fierce, fiery passion, it’s hard to deny there’s something real there. But he does. He says he was drunk. He says it was a one-time thing. He says he’s not into guys and what we did meant nothing...”
  3. Unforgiven (Sins and Secrets Series of Duets Book 2) by Willow Winters <— HE WAS HIDING HER WORST SECRET ALERT!! “With him, I felt complete, as if fate had given me a second chance. Then I learned the truth: the sins and secrets of what really brought us together. I knew it was too good to be true, but I could never have imagined he’d be capable of something so cold and cruel. That he was the reason my world crumbled…”

Ela June 19, 2017 at 7:45 AM

Good morning! Only 7? LOL :roll:

Maryse June 19, 2017 at 8:41 AM


Ela June 19, 2017 at 9:04 AM



Ela June 19, 2017 at 9:06 AM


Tessa June 19, 2017 at 9:13 AM

Hey, kind of close to first! Not bad considering… wait. I was awake when Ela posted! :P Is it bad that it’s been so long I don’t even know who Drew is?

Okay, I gotta gotta GOTTA tell you all this quote because it keeps going through my mind, making me grin.

‘I defy you, Shadowhunters,’ he thought, thumbing the top of the container and popping a cookie in his mouth. ‘I mock you with my sugar cravings!’


Ela June 19, 2017 at 9:18 AM

Are you reading Cassandra Clare?

Tessa June 19, 2017 at 9:21 AM

YESSSSSSSS! Lord of Shadows, the second book in The Dark Artifices series. :D There’s even a kid that has autism in it that is portrayed correctly! You know how rare that is?

bev June 19, 2017 at 9:28 AM

Good morning.

My sugar cravings usually mock me.

bev June 19, 2017 at 9:30 AM

Why do we think Fabi doesn’t come out and play with us anymore?

Ela June 19, 2017 at 9:35 AM

Fabi is always on that other GR thread….I see her and Leslie there ALL THE TIME. I’m thinking we’re not reading enough M/M or like non at all??? Maybe she traded us in? I tried to follow her and spy on the other GR thread but she’s just quicker feistier than me… :(

Tessa June 19, 2017 at 10:01 AM

Bev, same. lol The character who thought that, though, is awesome. He’s a secondary, and his thoughts are just spot on.

I noticed a lot of people stopped posting over here compared to before. All those BR you all do.

Ela June 19, 2017 at 10:07 AM

Oh stop whining Tessa and join us….come to the GR’s side of the blog!

Maryse June 19, 2017 at 10:17 AM

Reading it, Ela!! I started it last night and I’m already into it. The writing is great so far, and I’m thrilled it’s only from her POV (at least for now).

Maryse June 19, 2017 at 10:18 AM

But it’s fun HERE!!!!!

Maryse June 19, 2017 at 10:19 AM

Morning bev!!! :D

Ela June 19, 2017 at 10:22 AM

Oh Maryse, you will have dual POV’s!

Tessa June 19, 2017 at 10:33 AM

lol I’ll join you all when it’s something I want to read. Right now, the two you all are doing just don’t interest me. :/

Dual POVs sound like a threat!

Maryse June 19, 2017 at 10:40 AM

Oh it does!!!! ;)

Tessa June 19, 2017 at 11:52 AM

Beware the dual POV. Honestly, those usually ruin a lot of angst for me. At least, if he has feelings we shouldn’t know about. Bad guy POV, though, are total tummy twisters because you know what they are about to do is preventable, but you still watch it unfold, unable to help the hero/ heroine.

Ela June 19, 2017 at 12:26 PM


bev June 19, 2017 at 12:38 PM


Maryse before GR!!

Lisa Aiello June 19, 2017 at 12:48 PM

I posted in my review of Riven that I’m filing a restraining order against all prior and future Melissa Delport books!! All our BR buddies need to hurry up so Ela and I have someone else to rant at…and I can’t WAIT to see Maryse’s review!!

Ela June 19, 2017 at 12:49 PM


Fabi June 19, 2017 at 1:00 PM

hey guys *waves*

Ela mentioned on GR that I wasn’t playing as much here as I used to. *no no no, not true* Loving you guys as much as always!

I’ve just been spending more time reading than chatting lately. Ela is also correct that I’ve been reading much more M/M recently than I used to.

Like that one up there. ^^^ Strong Enough. I’ve been itching like crazy to read that one!

So yeah, other than an occasional PNR or Sci-Fi, I seem to have lost myself in an M/M Romance phase. I think these phases happen to all of us. I’m just kind of out of the loop wrt CR right now.

Robyn June 19, 2017 at 1:05 PM

Maryse, I noticed that book 1 of The Sins and Secrets series by Willow Winters is free on Amazon. You have book 2 in your list, so if anyone wants to start the series the first book is free!

Maryse June 19, 2017 at 1:23 PM

Thank you Robyn!!!! :D

Maryse June 19, 2017 at 1:25 PM

LOL *snuggles bev*

Maryse June 19, 2017 at 1:25 PM

Lisa I’m already loving it!! I’m devouring it, in fact.

Amy June 19, 2017 at 1:27 PM

Yeah. What bev said. MBB before GR. As fun as it can get on GR, this is home to me. And I’m a homebody. ;)

FABI!!! I’ve missed ya ’round here!! *tackle hugs Fabi*

Amy June 19, 2017 at 1:35 PM

I’m starting Riven tonight and I’m so excited!! I’m really trying not to DNF Tampa but if I’m going to finish it, for now it has to be in small doses. I can only take so much description about her attraction to middle school boys not yet in full-on puberty… :?

Tessa June 19, 2017 at 1:48 PM

Um… why not just DNF Tampa Amy? It sounds like one of those that would make me feel horrible after reading it.

Leslie M June 19, 2017 at 1:53 PM

I am here!!!

As much as I love Maryse, this blog and all you guys, I am on GR a lot. I have always been very active there and that’s how I keep track of my library.

I do always check in daily here though…I promise I won’t ditch you guys.

Amy June 19, 2017 at 1:54 PM

Because I’m hoping for a gut punch? *shrugs*

But the shock value is just so…so…icky that I may not make it. Unless I skim completely over the ick-inducing parts just so I can see how hard her downfall is.

‘Cause she HAS to have a downfall.

Leslie M June 19, 2017 at 1:58 PM

Oooh, I forgot to say that


(Isn’t Drew the one that Ava’s bff was messing around with at the Manor?)

Tessa June 19, 2017 at 2:34 PM

*grins* Or… you could just cheat and read the end. I read a book where I hated the characters so much (They were sociopaths on a killing spree) that I wanted to see them all get it in the end. NOPE. HEA. :/

Ela June 19, 2017 at 2:43 PM

Yeah, um nope Amy….

Cheryl June 19, 2017 at 3:08 PM

Lately, I’ve had a hard enough time keeping up here with posts and comments; there’s no way I can do more than update my books on GR.

Riven sounds too marmy for me and with Ela and Lisa’s comments I *know* it’s not for me!!!

Funny Bev, I just started Sugar & Gold. So far my sugar craving is not mocking me!!! ;)

Grey June 19, 2017 at 3:12 PM

After Thursday… You guys will yell at me to stfu because I’m talking too much again! come on summer break!

Leslie M June 19, 2017 at 3:27 PM

Too lazy to scroll through old comments but someone recently mentioned The Boy Who Sneaks in my Bedroom Window….I really liked that one and I am extra picky when it comes to YA. Highly recommend.

Ela June 19, 2017 at 3:36 PM

^^^ What Leslie said!

Ela June 19, 2017 at 3:36 PM

Awww come on Cheryl! Lisa and I over exaggerate!

Maryse June 19, 2017 at 5:59 PM

*snort* :P

Cheryl June 19, 2017 at 7:23 PM

Nice try Ela. Nope.

bev June 19, 2017 at 8:19 PM

I can’t believe tomorrow is summer already.

Leslie M June 19, 2017 at 8:33 PM

Its crazy….where have the last 6 months gone???

bev June 19, 2017 at 8:38 PM

This is fun.


My dream ring would be Queen Elizabeth engagement ring. I love that ring.

Tessa June 19, 2017 at 9:13 PM

My groom would be Ross MacKay from Lynsay Sands’ An English Bride in Scotland. All honesty, the perfect ring would be one that was really thought about, and personalized. Preferably no diamond.

My niece just got engaged and her fiance proposed with a ring that had Kingdom Heart’s Keyblade called Oathkeeper with her birthstone. :D It was perfect for her.

bev June 19, 2017 at 9:59 PM

That sounds very special Tessa.

Jan June 19, 2017 at 11:13 PM

Haha Tessa. My groom is the SAME!! Is he gonna be a bigamist?? A fun little game, bev. Thanks for the link. I never see those things.

Tessa June 19, 2017 at 11:50 PM

Yep. Something tells me he’s going to have a harem by the end of it.

Tessa June 19, 2017 at 11:53 PM

What the heck? I totally changed my answers and got the same guy. He’s trying to steal all of us for himself!

Tessa June 20, 2017 at 12:15 AM

UGH! I accidentally saw a spoiler when the book flipped. And and and, it’s a HUGE spoiler!

Maryse June 20, 2017 at 5:33 AM

Mine is Seth Tyler from Lauren Layne’s To Have and to Hold.

Ela June 20, 2017 at 6:47 AM

I don’t even know the dude:
Callum Kerr from Jenna Bayley-Burke’s Just Married wants you down the aisle so bad that he’s going to plan a wedding—to YOU—and invite you to it. It’ll be the perfect timing for both of you to spill the beans on how you really feel right? Just in time for you to say “I do.”

Leslie M June 20, 2017 at 7:33 AM

Ela, mine is same as yours! Never even heard of that book.

Amy June 20, 2017 at 7:58 AM

Ooooh, dang Tessa… *winces* I felt that all the way up here in the Pacific Northwest. :|

Accidentally reading a spoiler is the worst. THE. WORST.

Jean June 20, 2017 at 9:18 AM

Finished Riven this morning and I think it is a must read for all of you!

Tessa June 20, 2017 at 9:20 AM

*frowns and nods* And it’s a HUGE spoiler that was right at the end of the book.

bev June 20, 2017 at 6:08 PM

Really, Jean?

For all of us??

Jean June 20, 2017 at 6:28 PM

Well, maybe not you….or Leslie!
