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.)

Kandace: I’m on a total Stephie Walls binge. Maryse posted her newest book Unexpected Arrivals and I loved it. I loved it so much I dove straight into her backlist. Her duet “Bound” and “Freed” was so intense. Lots of drama and angst. Bound kind of had a DRIVE feels to it.

Kooloo: I think you and R (for my heart is a ROCK) would enjoy this one called “Unexpected Arrivals” Stephie Walls! I mean this has Big Drama and Heart Ripping all over it! Your Welcome.

Nancy: UNEXPECTED ARRIVALS is a wonderful love story that spans from high school, through college, and after college graduation to present day. The Prologue sucks you into the story…

  • Gods & Monsters by Saffron A. Kent <— FORBIDDEN LOVE ALERT!!! JUST WENT LIVE YESTERDAY & Nancy LOVED it!!! THE TOWN CONSIDERED HIM BORN OF A MONSTER… but she loved him…
Nancy: I read an ARC and I wrote the longest review on Goodreads then I have ever wrote. It is one of those books that you feel so passionate about, even if you “hate” parts.
  • Gentleman Nine by Penelope Ward <— PENELOPE WARD RECENT RELEASE & WE HAVE FEEDBACK!
Shelly: I read Gentleman Nine in one sitting. It was so good and just what I needed this weekend!
Tessa: I finished Strange the Dreamer and oh… I don’t want to leave the world. I don’t want to abandon Weep or Lazlo. I want to stay there forever and just live. Warning… CH, but wow, the writing was well done, and the story stole my heart. Honestly, it will probably be in the best of the year category.
Candace: Just finished Bentley: Vested Interest #1 – it was very good and now I’m waiting on the next one in this series
  • Midnight Valentine by J.T. Geissinger <— RECLUSE HERO RECENT RELEASE & AMAL LOVES IT!!

Amal: …recluse heroes are my weakness and this one brought me to my knees. the wit, the humor and the mental disorders were so REAL! the ending was exactly what i was hoping for even though i anticipated a HEA. this was the most satisfying book i have read all week! I could not have asked for a better recluse book and i hope to find more since i have read almost all the ones on your ultimate recluse heroes list.

  • Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover <— COLLEEN HOOVER ALERT!!! This one’s pretty emotionally angsty and forbidden-y and it’s on sale today!! :D

Jennifer: I finished Maybe Someday last night and I have to say, I loved it. It was so powerful and full of emotions. There were parts where my jaw literally hit the floor. I swooned so much and I couldn’t tell you how many times I laughed, tears rolling down my face hysterical, Mt husband kept looking over me and asking if I was ok. Lol. I don’t want to reveal any spoilers, so ladies if you’re looking for a heartbreak, hilarious and with an amazing ending, please read this one

Leslie M: Maybe Someday. Sure, it was angsty…but not terribly angsty to me. I guess because it wasn’t super depressing, stomp on my heart, bawl my eyes out, that I would recommend it. Especially compared to Slammed. I LOVED Slammed but it was major tearjerker for me…




  1. Glacier (VLG Book 9) by Laurann Dohner <— SHE’S NOT A FAN OF BEING A VAMPIRE… “...Since that fateful day she was snatched from her job and turned into a Vampire, Mandy’s life has sucked-literally.

Good morning! Unexpected Arrivals is calling my name. *click*

Leslie M February 20, 2018 at 7:53 AM

Good morning! :)

Lot’s are calling my name too.

*sit on hands to prevent excessive clicking*

Maryse February 20, 2018 at 8:42 AM

Good morning everyone!!! :D

Leslie M February 20, 2018 at 8:59 AM

I am reading In Harmony this a.m. and it’s making me weepy.

Tessa February 20, 2018 at 9:06 AM

Good morning! I ended up staying up last night to watch the men’s ski halfpipe. I’ve no idea why, but it sure was entertaining. :)

Deborah Wilde’s Crave came out today! *happy dance* The series is so good. :)

steph February 20, 2018 at 9:08 AM

I’m reading Harmony too :)
Is it a bad thing the only books I want to read are in the bargain section? No!

Lisa Aiello February 20, 2018 at 9:28 AM

Good morning, lovelies! That’s quite an awesome list up there. I looooove Tuesdays!!!

Jean February 20, 2018 at 11:38 AM

Refraining from 1-clicking……

I’m still reading In Harmony too….. only at 50% or so. I’m liking it, but saw some of you liked it better than Rush and that’s just not possible for me…..At least at this point……

A little feedback for you though, I read an ARC of Rock King and liked it…..great beginning to a series!

Kooloo February 20, 2018 at 12:58 PM

Happy Turday!!!

Nay and I tried a BR of an ARC of the Innocent Wife (which is on today’s list).
I wanted to read for the cover – go figure lol
But also because the author only rated it 4 Stars on GRs – awwwww
Who does that?!?

Anyway we both stopped only 13% in
A BIG DNF for both of us :(

R. Renee February 20, 2018 at 1:01 PM

An author rated her own book 4 stars?? I was taught at RT that authors should use their review space for info and teasers, not to rate/review, but rating it less than 5 (if you’re going to) is crazy!

Nay February 20, 2018 at 2:15 PM

Yup, what Kooloo said.

Grey February 20, 2018 at 2:24 PM

*waves* *drags sad sack of self to the blankie fort* Ugh, I hate being sick.

MichelleS February 20, 2018 at 5:52 PM

Made me think of you, Bev! LOL

MichelleS February 20, 2018 at 5:59 PM

I finished From Lukov With Love. Giving it 4 stars. I was entertained & got my HEA, figure skating, slow burn, banter… but… it had a few issues for me.

Now what? I’m downloading samples, but nothing is grabbing me.

Ashley February 20, 2018 at 7:40 PM

Maybe Someday is one of my go-to reads! I’ve read/listened to it at least 6 times. I read a Bentley and loved it. I also just read Gentleman Nine and loved that one. Now I’m going to read the new P. Dangelico book but I also got the new Lex Martin book (…decisions decisions… it’s a good thing I have the day off tomorrow!).

bev February 20, 2018 at 7:47 PM

MichelleS……that is the best thing EVER!!

Leslie M February 20, 2018 at 9:07 PM

Michelle, I can rec 3 good ones off your TBR.

The Butterfly Project
A Pound of Flesh

bev February 20, 2018 at 9:26 PM

What are you in the mood for, MichelleS?

Cheryl February 20, 2018 at 10:31 PM

Quite a few up there that I’m liking. Gentleman Nine, Use Me, and Reckless.

I read In Harmony. I really liked the beginning, but parts of the middle and toward the end bothered me. Liked Rush better.

Reading The Worst Best Man. It’s funny, sometimes over the top, but entertaining and it’s KU, which I’m trying to only use right now.

Nay February 21, 2018 at 12:11 AM

I know I swore off actively seeking books with the male pov, but I just finished Uncharted (the plane crash book), and it MAJORLY would have benefited from it. I really could have used it to connect better with the hero, who, for some of the book, seemed almost like a 2-D character. I’m still giving it 4 stars, but it easily could have been worth 5 epic stars.

And along those lines, after reading 3 books from the Beautiful Bastard series over the weekend, I’ll admit that the male pov in those was magic!

Leslie M February 21, 2018 at 8:25 AM

Re: dual POV books. I have read some that have been snoozers because both MC’s are showing same scenes. Too repetitive! But others, like Behind the Bars (and I know I won’t stop yammering about this book) need it because the MC’s have totally separate stories to tell. (and when you meet poor, broken Elliot, you will want to be in his head forever & ever) ;)

So, I think liking/disliking dual pov is part personal taste and part author talent.

Maryse February 21, 2018 at 8:35 AM

I’m reading a paper book! LOL! Tessa Bailey’s latest cop-in-training book (the second one in her “Academy” series – remember the first one with the stripper-cop looking cover)? Tee hee!!!

Anyway, I’m loving this one too. Kind of fun going old-school reading with an actual book, though lighting is the main issue. *sigh* It’s dual POV but it works for me ’cause these young hot-shot cops are so hilarious…

Leslie M February 21, 2018 at 8:49 AM

Maryse, will you have all those tabs/flags sticking out of the book?

I love that!

Nay February 21, 2018 at 9:37 AM

Leslie—I agree. I’ve learned that a lot of it depends on the author (and the type of story that’s being written). When writing from just the heroine’s POV, there’s the potential for a lot of angst (which is an awesome thing for me), but it’s important for the writer to let us see the hero’s personality in other ways and make sure we still get to know him. That’s what I was missing in Uncharted—I felt like I didnt know the hero very well until close to the end.

bev February 21, 2018 at 10:07 AM

There is a kdrama called Healer that came out a few years ago. It became really popular, at least from the reviews and blogs I’ve seen.
Anyway, I finally just started it. I was kind of keeping it as an ace up my sleeve. Done that with books too. You know the ones you know are gems so you keep them until the perfect time?
Not feeling good and so tired most of the time, especially after work it just seemed like the perfect time.
I just started but am LOVING IT. Love.
Someone needs to try it. C’mon. I’m pathetic right now.
Amy? You watch tv. And it’s only 20 eps. The whole thing done in 20.

Leslie M February 21, 2018 at 10:51 AM


*needle scratches across record*

*everyone on blog holds breathe collectively*

Did little ole Bev offer a hug??????

Jean February 21, 2018 at 10:53 AM

Whoa!! I had to go back and read that! *tackles and hugs bev while I can*

Leslie M February 21, 2018 at 10:53 AM

*releases breath*

*places hand to bev’s forehead to check temperature*

Leslie M February 21, 2018 at 10:54 AM

Jean, what do you think? I Bev delirious? ;)

Tessa February 21, 2018 at 12:12 PM

*huggles Bev* Don’t question it! Just take advantage of it.

Maryse February 21, 2018 at 12:14 PM

*snuggles Grey ’cause it’s okay I already had the virus so I’m immune*

Did I give it to you Grey?

Maryse February 21, 2018 at 12:16 PM


Jump into bev’s hug ASAP before she rescinds it!!!

Jean February 21, 2018 at 12:23 PM

I think bev may be delirious from ramen/Easter eggs!!

Grey February 21, 2018 at 1:38 PM

Thanks, Maryse. Being sick sucks. And I don’t like it… *cries*

I’m taking a raincheck on my bev hug… I don’t want to get anyone else sick.

So, book news, Penelope Douglas is releasing a new book next month! Forbidden love… new characters… Yay for us!

Tessa February 21, 2018 at 1:59 PM

I saw that. :) Did you get the message I sent you about Sleeping with Monsters?

Jean February 21, 2018 at 3:49 PM

Have you guys seen the new cover for the Vi Keeland/Penelope Ward book……Rebel Heir? IT IS SO FREAKING HOT!!!!!

bev February 21, 2018 at 3:54 PM



I was saying I’d offer a hug if she watched the show. I wasn’t just offering them. You all know you aren’t watching it.
Your just hugging!

bev February 21, 2018 at 3:55 PM


Question it.

Question it!

Jean February 21, 2018 at 3:56 PM

Grey, what’s the new Penelope Douglas book? Hope you are feeling better!

Tessa February 21, 2018 at 4:08 PM

No one knows. It’s a mystery. Literally, PD said there’s a new book with a forbidden romance coming out in a month.

Jean February 21, 2018 at 4:24 PM

Omg bev, I am laughing SO HARD right now! You are hysterical!

Thanks Tessa!

Tessa February 21, 2018 at 4:34 PM

*lives in huggle world* Awww, Bev, you know you are so sick you needed a hug.

bev February 21, 2018 at 8:34 PM

You all are funny.

What was that?

Out of all I wrote you all just saw the word “hug” and reacted.

Tessa February 21, 2018 at 9:37 PM

Nah, I read the whole thing. I didn’t notice the hug until Jean pointed it out, but you KNOW I had to take advantage of it, right? :P

MichelleS February 22, 2018 at 8:51 AM

Group hug!

I found a book! First in the Blackthorn & Grim series. There are Fae! Yippee.

bev February 22, 2018 at 10:14 AM

No. No group hug.

I’m going to watch this like I’m BUDDY watching it. I am going to drive you all nuts with it. Just wait.

Maryse February 22, 2018 at 12:08 PM

Ohhhhh Penelope Douglas’s version of Forbidden romance could ver very fun indeed!!! :D

Maryse February 22, 2018 at 12:09 PM

Jean… I agree with you on that cover. It’s gorgeous.

OMG bev babe

Why am I having so much trouble getting into Playing with Monsters?! I usually love the books everyone else gushes about.

That does look intriguing. I can’t say my FLT. It’s the fifth book of The Arcana series by Kresley Cole and the first line is REVEALING! lol A HUGE HUGE HUGE reveal that happened at the end of the last book, so nope. No FLT from me.

FLT: The ring of my phone startled me as I was mindlessly scrolling through photos online.(Gentleman Nine by Penelope Ward)

Yeah…..I kinda bailed on the PwM BR…..sorry guys….

bev February 22, 2018 at 4:25 PM

I. Love. These. Two.

Amy February 22, 2018 at 6:36 PM

OMG!!!!! Do my eyes deceive me?!?


I would SO watch that show if it meant a hug from bev. It’s called The Healer? You’re on. I will binge watch it after my surgery next week. Hey, the upside to surgery is days and days of reading and binge watching. :D

Now, all of you know you’ll have to watch it as well since you stole hugs from our dear friend, right? *lol*

Maryse February 22, 2018 at 6:38 PM

*gasp* SURGERY!!!!!!!?????

Amy February 22, 2018 at 6:43 PM

*sprays Lysol all over personal space*

Luffs all y’all but I can’t be gettin’ sick right now.

I wanted to read An Innocent Wife but I waited for some reviews first just in case it headed the direction I thought it was going to…and apparently I was right. :? Then I see it was a DNF for Jean and Nay so all things considered it’s a big NOPE OCTOPUS for me.

BUT! I am ridiculously excited for Secret Lucidity, and Grey says PW has a new forbidden love book coming out? SCORE!!

Amy February 22, 2018 at 6:46 PM

Yep Maryse, next week. No biggie and I should be out of the hospital within a couple of days. ;)

Hey, I’ll have all kinds of time to chat on here while I’m off work for a couple of weeks!

On a side note, we have had SNOW this week…WTH?? Like, work-cancelling snow. Oh well, I’m not complainin’ about an unexpected day off!

I was hoping for a Golden Dynasty experience (falling in love with the H and the book itself) but…it’s not happening. I may have my first DNF of the year and I’m sad. *sigh*

Maryse February 22, 2018 at 8:22 PM

*looks up An Innocent Wife*

I can’t remember that one. I DO know I want to read “The Wife Between Us” <—- GASP!!!!!

Amy I want you to watch it, but not in recovery. Am I thinking of the right surgery…..where you need to remove a jerk? Because a couple of weeks? Ouch.
If it is you are brave. I have a jerk I was suppose to get rid of years ago but the process scared me. I’m chicken, but his episodes of being an ass are so painful.

I am happy you might watch it. Yay.
It’s like they all hear that word and are activated.
Be careful with action words around here.

Amy February 22, 2018 at 11:06 PM

LOL bev!!!!! Yeah, my jerk needs to come out. I’m tired of the painful episodes, and I like alcohol and food too much to try and tough this out. ;)

Hey, you had to know what would happen if you said the word hug in that context. *snicker*

MichelleS February 23, 2018 at 9:57 AM

What’s a “jerk”? Lady parts? Been there. Done that. Best decision ever!!!

I missed FLT, so here’s my FLF: “I fished out the rusty nail from under my pallet and scratched another mark on the wall.” Dreamer’s Pool, book one in Blackthorn & Grim Series. Ooooh. The feels. The writing. Calling all Sarah J Maas fans! Seriously!!!

MichelleS February 23, 2018 at 10:15 AM

Nay – I love love loved Fae Chronicles, but I DNF’d Playing With Monsters. Could not get into it. No sass.

Lori February 24, 2018 at 1:02 PM

Hello all – Just wanted to share about a great book that i just finished: Worst Best Man ~ Lucy Score. Fantastic. Funny, Hot, and a kickass strong heroine. Love, love Frankie.
