LOL! Okay yes, that title is corny, but it’s cute right? I couldn’t figure out whether to call them “early birds” or “late birds” since they missed Tuesday by a couple of days, so a bundle o’ books it is! *snort* Maybe I need more coffee. ;)

Today is reader question day, :D !!! and I have THREE that I’ll be posting for us to guess, but I couldn’t help myself on this extra “goodies” post. P.S. Don’t forget to send me your reader questions if you’re looking for a book, or an author, or anything book-related. :D

So here’s what JUST WENT LIVE:

  • Co-WRECKER by Meghan Quinn <— LIVE!! MEGHAN QUINN’S LATEST!! He wants his coworker to notice him… “I wanted to be friends — I would have even settled for her seeing me as anything but a nerd — but there was no getting through. So just like any hard-headed, red-blooded man out there, I made up my mind. I’d make my coworker fall for me…”
  • The Tempting Series: Books 1-4: Tempting, Beguiling, Provocative, Addicted by Alex Lucian <— FORBIDDEN ROMANCE SERIES BUNDLE SUPER-BARGAIN JUST WENT LIVE!!! TEACHER-STUDENT… “It had begun innocently enough, bumping into one another in a crowded Boston bar. What followed that night had been anything but innocent. Because I’d known, even as he’d slid inside of me, that he was my professor. I’d pursued him, a predator stalking its prey. And he didn’t know I was his student. But he would.”
  • Animal: A Prisoned Spinoff Standalone by Marni Mann <— MARNI MANN’S LATEST SUPER-DARK ROMANCE READ IS LIVE!!! HE’S THE GUARD…. REMEMBER ”Prisoned: A Dark Twisted Erotic Standalone“?!!! So many dark-read lovers went crazy for it!! Well lookie what we have here!!!
  • The Perfect Catch: A Sports Romance (The Darcy Brothers) by Alix Nichols <— LIVE!! SPORTS ROMANCE ALERT!! She’s in Paris to prove her job skills and she’s focused… “…That is, until a hunk of a tenant mistakes me for a thief and presses me against the wall in his kitchen. Noah Masson turns my life into a mess…”
  • Moments Of Beauty by J.B. Heller <— LIVE!! SECOND CHANCE ROMANCE ALERT!!! He left her… “She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back. Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends...”

I just 1-clicked the first three – especially Animal because Prisoned left you with that “wondering WTF” feeling at the end! And that cover of Moments of Beauty….he’s hot!

Pia March 23, 2017 at 10:43 AM

1-clicked The Tempting Series because $1,24 – whats not to like :-)

But first I have to finish Backfire by Keri Lake. I’m at 92% and holy moly what a scary and angsty book. I thought that Ricochet was bad, but add another 50% of all the angsty stuff and you know what to expect of Backfire. But a 5 star read for sure – just like Ricochet.

Jean March 23, 2017 at 11:00 AM

Yes Pia! Loved Backfire and Ricochet….both so great!

Maryse March 23, 2017 at 11:08 AM

I have to read Backfire!!!! So to as good? That makes me happy. :)

Okay what is wrong with my comments – the same one twice :-) Couldn’t see the first comment, so figured I forgot to submit. Wrote it again and now it appears twice. Damn computer :-)

Jean March 23, 2017 at 12:32 PM

Yes Maryse, Backfire was just as good as Ricochet!

R. Renee March 23, 2017 at 3:44 PM

I’ve been all over the place the last few days so this may be old news, but have you guys seen this? bev? https://www.rtconvention.com/blog/jennifer-aniston-star-screen-adaptation-julie-murphys-dumplin

R. Renee March 23, 2017 at 4:11 PM

And in other movie news, Josh Duhamel just called Becky Albertalli “ridiculously lovely” on Twitter. *rolls over and dies*

finish book
make movie
cast Josh Duhamel
get called “ridiculously lovely” on Twitter.

Leslie M March 23, 2017 at 7:15 PM

R, you make me laugh.

Bev, movie date when Dumplin’ comes out??

bev March 23, 2017 at 7:31 PM

Yes, R. I think she is a good pick, though not southern.

bev March 23, 2017 at 7:32 PM

Lol, ok. If nothing else we could buddy watch it when out of theaters. Do you think everyone would get upset if we took over the blog to live watch a movie “together”? It could be fun and is based on a book. ;)

Janet March 23, 2017 at 7:36 PM

Ok, just devoured L.A. Fiore’ s The Devil You Know ( Lost Boys Book 1) – GREAT recommendation – and Kristen Ashley’s The Deep End:The Honey Series. Both VERY good reads. Maryse – I know you think you’re not going to like KA’s new one because its about a Dominatrix but I DARE you to read it, and tell me you didn’t love it! The characters were just so likeable and somehow she turns subject-matter that seems often seems hard to relate to, and over-the-top, into a big love story with kink. The Devil You Know was just a great big sweeping romance, with a terrific hero and heroine. Now on to ‘Rachel Higginson’s The Opposite of You’!!

Jan March 23, 2017 at 7:52 PM

R’s next goal on the list
Marry Josh Duhamel and have his beautiful babies ;)

R. Renee March 23, 2017 at 7:57 PM

LOL!! I probably need to play matchmaker between my husband and Fergie first. I think he’d be on board with that.

Jan March 23, 2017 at 8:00 PM

Is anyone doing First Line Thursday? (or Friday here in Australia?)

“There’s no point,” Tracy said, balancing the phone in the crook of her neck, surveying her fresh pedicure.
from Unsuitable Men by Nia Forrester

I’m loving this series (the ‘commitment’ series). This particular book, whilst good, isn’t the best of the series. I’ve nearly finished this book now. Tracy’s low self-esteem issues are major, and so she makes all kinds of crazy decisions, which I’m finding a bit frustrating. But Brendan is so patient and wonderful with her as she sorts out her issues from her past. *gives long, daydreamy sigh*

bev March 23, 2017 at 8:02 PM

She seems like a very lovely lady and also appreciates Lin Manuel Miranda, lol.

Jan March 23, 2017 at 8:04 PM

LOL R. Not sure who I’d pair my husband with while I run off to the eighteenth century for a fling with my darling Poldark. Hmmmm.

bev March 23, 2017 at 8:27 PM


Fabi March 23, 2017 at 8:41 PM

Amy Lane’s new book, Bonfires comes out tomorrow. *happy happy dance*
Oh…Wait…She always tears my heart out. :-(
Oh well, that’s ok. Amy Lane can do whatever she wants with my heart. *happy dance happy dance*

Jan March 23, 2017 at 8:59 PM

Haha bev. Good thinking :)

Maryse March 23, 2017 at 9:48 PM

LOL!!! I’m working on tomorrow’s post and I saw the one from Amy Lane… It looks good!!! :D

Maryse March 23, 2017 at 9:55 PM

I’m still too stuck on “The Opposite of You” that I haven’t gotten into anything properly as of yet….


Maryse March 23, 2017 at 9:56 PM

Janet… that is MUSIC TO MY EARS!!! OR EYES. YAY!!! Okay I bet it’s going to be so good… and I love that you described it that way.
And thank you for BOTH recommendations.

bev March 23, 2017 at 10:03 PM

Don’t you love when you get stuck on a book?

Are you already doing Friday’s post?

bev March 23, 2017 at 10:12 PM

Whoa. WAIT! Back up the train. Turn that horse around.
Maryse are you taste testing books??? Really? For Real?
Um….To Tell the Truth, Shame the Devil….hmm. What would it taste like?
Or Gann?? That’s a complex taste.
Or…..um….ok you know all my peanuts by now, right?

bev March 23, 2017 at 10:46 PM

Maryse, you totally got street teamed on your fb what are you reading post. Oh my gosh.
Part of me wants to laugh because do they think they come across as subtle and natural?

Maryse March 24, 2017 at 5:58 AM

LOL I know it bev… I noticed that same story listed over and over and no real details… ;)

And actually that author and I chat “normal stuff” all the time and we love commenting on each other’s Instagram pics (I bet she has no clue I got street-teamed by her crew).

Maryse March 24, 2017 at 5:58 AM

Wouldn’t it be funny that we did the whole “this book tastes like…”

Kind of like a new FLT tradition. *snort*

bev March 24, 2017 at 7:30 AM

I have seen that with books and cookies, ice cream, or drinks. It’s always kind of fun.

R. Renee March 24, 2017 at 10:49 AM

Whoa that’s aggressive! I thought street teams were supposed to shove promotion down throats not hijack threads. That looked planned. Like “I’m gonna post about Wattpad, and you talk about how it’s free. Ok…Go!”

I love the book tasting idea Maryse! I think we should do it, but not name the book to see if everyone can guess it. The book I’m reading until the end of time apparently tastes like. NyQuil and regret.

bev March 24, 2017 at 7:20 PM

R, have you seen the blind dates for books? Libraries do it and I’ve seen it on a blog before. You post like a description like a blind date post then if someone is interested they as for the title. Libraries wrap the book in brown paper and then have description written on the front.

Maryse March 25, 2017 at 8:24 AM

LOL Nyquil and regret!!!

My book “My Life Next Door” tastes like chocolate chip cookies with a bite out of ‘em. Sweet and comfortable… and a bit quirky.

Tee hee. That’s actually an adorable scene (his little brother barged in on them while they were making out, to bring them a plate of chocolate chip cookies, which, of course, he had taken a bite out of each one first), and it make me giggle, but I think it’s perfectly suited to the “feel” of the book.
