BARGAINS & READER RECOMMENDATIONS (NOTE: bargain priced when I added them, but prices can change on Amazon, so make sure to check before you finalize your order. Sales listed are for Amazon U.S., however some of the Amazon UK links also reflect the sale!):
- The Consequences Series Box Set by Aleatha Romig <— DARK READ ALERT! ENTIRE SERIES BUNDLE, super-bargain priced today!!!!
Cristina: “I spent the weekend with the Consequences series. Definitely one of the most mentally and emotionally taxing reading experiences of my life. It was the most unpredictable love story I have ever read. This series shocked me and twisted my tummy over, and over, and over again. I say “love story” lightly.
This series is not for the faint at heart. If you like an easy love story or an easy hero/heroine, run far, far away from this series. Is it dark? The first book yes. But after that, it was more emotional than anything else. I would call it a psych thriller.
One quality I look for in my hero, in a dark series, is redemption. That’s what makes it a love story for me. It’s here, but it doesn’t come easy. I wasn’t sure after book #1 it was even possible for me, by Romig’s superior writing got me there.
This series is going to stay with me for a while. These kinds of feels don’t go away easily. It’s time for a glass of wine and a light read. Phew! I’m brushing the sweat off of my forehead. Well done Aleatha Romig! Well done indeed!”
- Score (Skin in the Game Book 1) by Christine Bell <— FOOTBALL STAR ALERT! She doesn’t trust sports stars at all but… “I just got assigned to be wide receiver Callum Samskevitch’s physical therapist. Pro: It will be great to add to my resume. Con: I have to see him. Every. Single. Day.” (super-bargain priced!!)
- Signal Bend Series by Susan Fanetti <— SUPER-POPULAR GRITTY BIKER SERIES ALERT! And each book is super-bargain priced today!! Kathy: “I have had the first two books in the Signal Bend MC Series by Susan Fanetti that a bunch of your readers love. So excited to see this morning that all of the books in the Signal Bend and Signal Bend So Cal are on sale… Just scooped them all up!! I have been waiting to read this series!“
- Heller by JD Nixon <— SO MUCH LOVE FOR THIS SERIES back when we first discovered indie, and Stephanie wants us to read it badly!!!
Stephanie: “Out of all the books I have read… this series is my ALL-TIME favorite! (I don’t even know if you’re ready for this lol) it’s a little series called The Heller Series by J.D. Nixon! I don’t want to tell you too much about the book before reading it, but basically it’s about a girl named Tilly that lands a job at a privately owned security company. The owner just happens to be a total god but of course is at first oblivious to Tilly’s liking to him (she also denies it). He sends her on these security jobs which somehow always end up going wrong. She along with all of the other characters will have you CRACKING UP and falling in love at the same time! …You will not put the books down!!!
…once I finished reading the series I was severely depressed without being able to hear more about Tilly and her ridiculous love life and the crazy situations she always seems to find herself in…”
- New York Crime Kings Box Set: Books 1-4 by Skyla Madi <— GANG DARK READ ALERT! This whole series had been bundled at a super-bargain price!! “I had no right following Jai into the abandoned industrial site, but I did, and that stupid mistake was all it took to rip me from my world of semi-normalcy and thrust me headfirst into the gritty criminal underground with Stone as my only ally. Aboveground, I’m a student nurse painfully dragging herself through an unfulfilling life, but down here, where men wear tattoos on their faces and kill without remorse, I’m a fraud living on borrowed time...”
- Always Room for Cupcakes by Bethany Lopez <— SWEET SUPER-BARGAIN ’cause book #2 is coming out soon! The author says” “Always Room for Cupcakes is on sale… leading up to the release of book 2 in the series.
