in Latest Book Releases

Two highly anticipated releases are out today: Wethering the Storm - a rock star book (#2 after the one I LOVED last year) and Shooting Scars (YAY bad guys!! Javier and I have a date!). Ohhh I have a feeling he and I are not going to go well together after this one, but I still can’t help myself. ;) *fingers crossed*

P.S. I read a book last night that I LOVED! Like… 4.5 star loved. No real complaints from me other than I just wish it was longer. Other than that, it fulfilled my reading needs (and I loved the writing style), so I’ll be reviewing that one shortly.

So here are today’s latest book releases, plus I pointed out a few new releases that look goooood and our fellow readers have found us some great looking bargain ebooks, too!

Feel free to let me know if I’m missing any, or if you’ve found one in the bunch, that you loved. :D


  • Trying Not To Love You (The Love Series) by Megan Smith <— this was one of the suggestions to one of yesterday’s reader questions, and I just realized book #2 (below) is out now, too! – both bargain priced!
  • Easy To Love You (The Love Series) by Megan Smith (book #2 that was just recently released)
  • Friend-Zoned by Belle Aurora <— book #2 is on sale, too!
  • Love Thy Neighbor (Friend-Zoned) by Belle Aurora <— Kathy says: “The second book in the Friend Zoned series by Belle Aurura is on sale… If you haven’t yet the first book yet, you should, it was one of my best reads this year!!”
  • In This Moment by Autumn Doughton <— Kat LOVED it: “This was a 5 star read for me. Brilliant writing that made the reader feel the characters emotions. I cried, I loved, and I didn’t want this book to end.”
  • Hell’s Knights (The MC Sinners Series) by Bella Jewel <— motorcycle club!! Tasha says: “Finished this book this morning, and I liked it. It is a great short read… Not a cliffhanger.”
  • Jet: A Marked Men Novel by Jay Crownover <— Stephanie found us this deal “JET: A Marked Men Novel is reduced!”
  • Rule: A Marked Men Novel by Jay Crownover <— and while we’re at it, book #1 is on sale, too!

Omens (Canesville #1) by Kelley Armstrong released today. Its a new adult novel about a young woman from a wealthy family that finds out she’s adopted. Turns out her birth parents are convicted serial killers. So to escape the press who are harassing her she goes in search of the truth. The synopsis hints to paranormal twist but its not completely revealed. It doesnt appear to be anything obvious as vampires or werewolves. Im totally intrigued by this book and cant wait to read it.

Would you tell people about these free Werewolf/paranormal stories from Nickie Charles. There are 6 free, full length books for download. I give all a 5 star rating for story telling and content. Great reads. I am not affiliated with the author in any way. I just found and liked the books and so cool that they are all free.
