<—- Loooookie lookie!! One of my all-time favorite authors in the world has just released a new “Colorado Mountain Alpha-male” into our world! :P *happy dance*

And and!! There are a fair amount of jolt-inducing blurbs that I’ve read today. A few exceptionally exciting ones that have made it on my TBR list. I totally just one-clicked this new release: A Ride or Die Kind of Love (<— biker books by our favorites, bundled!!) MINE! And… Letting Go (widow runs into her husband’s best friend. At a BDSM club. eek <— eeeep!), Disarm (brothers best friend that has to look out for her… and sounds even better than that!), Bound (signs up for self-defense class, and teacher well… you know. ;) ) and Raising Ryann (I know this one’s been on my list in the past. Not sure why I missed it, but MMA fighter hired to train her…)

Oh and!! I’m currently reading Joanna Wylde’s Reaper’s Legacy (Reapers Motorcycle Club) (should be finishing today), and I’m loving it!!! So good, so real, and exactly what I was in the mood for. What a dirty dirty mouth. ;) YAY ME!

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

Lauren February 4, 2014 at 4:54 PM

One Week Girlfriend & The Perfect Game books are 2 of my favorites. I read them a while back but still re-read em when the mood strikes. Is it just me or does the new release list have a lot of pricey books this week?

Maryse February 4, 2014 at 5:03 PM

Well, Bev… at least the “already purchased” notifications remind us to yank it back up the TBR list. LOL!!! After all, if we’ve one-clicked it twice, it must be something we wanna read! ;) Happens to me alllllll the time.

Maryse February 4, 2014 at 5:05 PM

Happy Anniversary Amy!!! P.S. My Yves St. Laurent mascara that I just picked up is SO much better than my last Dior one. Much happier. Usually I like ‘em both equally, but alas… ;) Now my eyelashes look fluffy again.

Maryse February 4, 2014 at 5:05 PM
