WEDNESDAY UPDATES!!!! THESE JUST RECENTLY WENT LIVE, TOO! Okay yeah, ;) that one there to the left is going live TOMORROW, but I had to post it, ’cause SO many are excited for this one.

  • Naughty Boss: A Novella by Whitney G. <— LOL!!!!! OOOOOOOPS! SHE ACCIDENTALLY SENT HER EMAIL TO HER SEXY INFURIATING BOSS... “I honestly can’t wait to see the look on his face two months from now when I tell him that I’m quitting his company and that he can kiss my ass. KISS. MY. ASS...”
  • Duke: Alpha One Security: Book 3 by Jasinda Wilder <— DARK READ ALERT (at least it sounds that way…) “Six-six, built like a god, red hair, blue eyes, and a tree trunk between his legs. Yeah. This is the guy I got kidnapped with. Phrasing is important there: kidnapped WITH, not kidnapped BY.”
  • Impossible: Dual POV Edition by Julia Sykes <— DARK READ ALERT!! “**This is a new 2016 Dual POV edition of Impossible, combining Sean and Claudia’s points of view into one narrative.”

HAPPY NEW RELEASE DAY!!! It’s almost Christmas and Happy Holiday parties time (YAYYYY!!!!) and I’m so excited. But, there’s still some time left to read and shop before the big day (or big days, since many of us have multiple get-togethers to attend), and I found plenty of goodies for all of us to enjoy, below!! :D

Don’t forget to check out yesterday’s “Early Bird” book releases ➔ 10 Monday Early Bird Book Releases!!

What stands out to me, today? That one up there, to the left (Always With You), absolutely, ’cause book #1 ROCKED MY WORLD!!! DO NOT read the blurb of this one, if you haven’t caught up in the series yet (here’s book #1 ➔ Down to You (A Bad Boys Novel Book 1)), ’cause they must be read in order. :D Also, Max (’cause I LOVE famous star books, when he meets that one girl that doesn’t know who he is at all, and he can just be himself… I LOVE the “discovery” part of these love stories and this one sounds perfect!! Plus he’s a hockey goalie. SO…. WOW!!), I Was Here (in the bargains section) ’cause it sounds poignant and stunning (secrets and all that, and I LOVE this author!!), Levi’s Ultimatum (also in the bargain section from back in 2013!!! He sees her (a single mom just trying to make it) and becomes obsessed with her, Jaded Hearts (They are a couple, and both signed to a record label, and it sounds angsty as all heck!!), Becoming a Legend (I LOVE MMA stars, and this one sounds right up my alley!).

P.S. Let me know if I’m missing any or if you loved any (from this list or elsewhere).


For those going on a road trip soon, or maybe you’ve got some projects that require both hands this weekend but still allows you to “listen”… check out the free audible trial + 2 free audiobooks deal —>

  • AND! Here’s the fun-tool again! —> Find out which of YOUR Kindle books are available as audiobooks at a BARGAIN-PRICE! <— This thing is so cool (Amazon calls it “Matchmaker“)! It’s an Amazon feature, that scans all of your Kindle books and will list all of the ones you have that are also available as an audiobook at a discounted price (not normal audiobook prices). This way, you can switch back and forth, seamlessly between your ebooks and your audiobooks. VERY COOL!

The PNR is amazing today. Last week’s too!!

Ela December 13, 2016 at 1:23 PM


Theresa December 13, 2016 at 1:34 PM

Picked up Born Sinner…that was on my to buy list…love when I find them at a bargain price!!!

Amy December 13, 2016 at 5:30 PM

OMG, Disaster at Roosevelt Ranch sounds absolutely scandalous…and delicious!! Click! Now, if I can hold off until November (October?) then I’ll have my “cowboy” read for our reading challenge. It’s on a ranch so that should count, right? Right. ;)

Ooh! And Jaded Hearts, Fix You, and The First Touch of Sunlight. How fun do those look?

Candy cane martinis tonight, ladies!!

Maryse December 13, 2016 at 5:51 PM

Oh that counts, Amy!!!! :D *waggles eyebrows*

Maryse December 13, 2016 at 5:52 PM


All the extra S’s are for all the ones I’m swiping from you guys while you aren’t looking! :P

Maryse December 13, 2016 at 6:01 PM

Theresa that one sounds awesome!

Jan December 13, 2016 at 6:04 PM

LOL Maryse. And Amy, could you please slide one of those my way while I click on Love In Rewind and Fix You. Yum!

Tessa December 13, 2016 at 6:08 PM

I want SL Jennings second book in the seven sinners series. It was so good.

I love the PNR list. I got the Ella Summers one from pre-order and used KU for Queen Heir.

i read Angelbound and Scala years ago. However, those curious, currebtly Angelbound is free.

Tessa December 13, 2016 at 6:11 PM

oh, Wait for It is so good. Just everything I loved about Kulti is in this book. You all must read it!

Jan December 13, 2016 at 6:20 PM

Yup Tessa.

Fabi December 13, 2016 at 6:24 PM

Thanks Tessa, I just picked up Angelbound. I’m also getting Born Sinner & Dark Crime.

PS. I love Brooke May for posting this on her book blurb: “**This book has a cliffhanger**” I want to buy her book as a thank you for her consideration.

Jan December 13, 2016 at 6:27 PM

OK I just 1-clicked Dragon Born. I haven’t read any Ella Summers but it looks pretty sweet and IT’S ONLY 0.99$ AUS!! Thanks Tessa.

Ah heck. Someone stop me clicking any more, Now? Pleeeeease?

Amy December 13, 2016 at 7:51 PM

Maryse is the Silent Swiper. ;)

Thanks Tessa! I haven’t read a good angel book in a while. :D

Amy December 13, 2016 at 7:53 PM

*snort* Seriously, Jan? Did you forget where you are right now? :lol:

Fabi…maybe word is getting out about the upset over no warnings on CH books. ;)

bev December 13, 2016 at 8:33 PM

The leads in the adaptation of Everything Everything. And he is in talks to play Simon in the adaptation of Simon vstheHomosapiensAgenda

Tessa December 13, 2016 at 8:34 PM

:) I’m always looking for a new angel series.

Jan December 13, 2016 at 8:39 PM

I just realised the 99c Dragon Born I bought is a trilogy! I’m happy (value for money :D ) but sad cos my tbr is exploding even more :/

Yep authors should always tell us it’s a CH. I don’t like CHs in general as I think it’s a cop out and a rip off, but if an author does go there, at least they can tell us and we can make an informed decision and maybe still buy it anyway. I’m still bitter about the unannounced CH in Mr President and I’m not buying anymore Katy Evans on principle.

Fabi December 13, 2016 at 8:46 PM

Maryse, are you wanting us to send you our top 10 2016 favs list like last year?

bev December 13, 2016 at 8:47 PM

Maryse December 15, 2016 at 7:21 PM

Yes PLEASE send me your 2016 TOP LISTS ( itsmaryse @ gmail. com )


Jan December 15, 2016 at 8:11 PM

Hi Maryse. I already posted my top 10 a few days ago :-)

My FLT for this week:
“Don’t get it,” I said as I heard the ringtone of our apartment phone.

from Smooth-Talking Stranger by Lisa Kleyaps. This is book 3 in the CR ‘Travis’ series. A few years old, but I’ve only just discovered it. I’m fluvvin it. Loved Bks 1, 2 and luvvin bk 3 so far. Book 4 has mixed reviews but I’m going to read that too on the strength of these three.

Jan December 15, 2016 at 8:12 PM

Lisa KleyPAS :/

Cheryl December 15, 2016 at 9:29 PM

Waves to everyone. Crazy time of year and haven’t been able to read as much or even to check in here daily. So sad!
I woke up screaming. Wait for It by Mariana Zapata. A S-L-O-W burn romance.

Thinking of Take Me With You Next. Is this purely a psychological thriller or is there some romance?

Jen C December 15, 2016 at 10:26 PM

1-clicked Naughty Boss last night – sounded like a fun read. And it was! Quick and easy read. Really liked it.

bev December 15, 2016 at 10:53 PM

Been in bed with a fever for the past 24 hours. I swear I used to read more when I was sick. Maybe because they were pb? The screen hurts my eyes after a while.
Really, if there should be one upside to being home sick…..sigh.

R. Renee December 15, 2016 at 10:55 PM

I hope you feel better soon, bev <3

Fabi December 15, 2016 at 10:56 PM

Guys!!!!! Look look look what R sent me! I’m a big ol’ emotional mess right now.

Of course, she sent it in that nice Christmas tin all arranged prettty. But I had to pull everything out one by one like a kid on Christmas morning. (Oh, and I didn’t take a picture of the homemade cookies and caramels cause I’m eating those.). But the cookies are the Swedish pepparkakor from The Man I Love. They are so good!

Maryse you gotta make some.

Fabi December 15, 2016 at 11:01 PM

Hope you get better soon bev. I can’t read when I’m sick. Forget work, I just want to feel well again so I can read. :-/

R. Renee December 15, 2016 at 11:04 PM

Did you try to break any yet Fabi? I was told yesterday hearts are the key to successful wishes. Stars, not so much!

Fabi December 15, 2016 at 11:06 PM

My wish has already come true. I have a big group of book loving friends right here. I can’t think of anything better to wish for.

R. Renee December 15, 2016 at 11:07 PM

Awwww!! Now break the dang cookie! ;)

Fabi December 15, 2016 at 11:09 PM

Ok ok! But I gotta go get another one. (hehehe it worked)

bev December 15, 2016 at 11:13 PM

That is lovely!

I’ll have to look those cookies up.

R. Renee December 15, 2016 at 11:14 PM

WTH?? I broke a bazillion cookies yesterday before I got 3 pieces! Stupid finger.

Fabi December 15, 2016 at 11:16 PM

I got it in my first try. You just wanted to eat more cookies and I don’t blame you one bit!

Jan December 16, 2016 at 1:07 AM
