First… happy new release day! :D And second…
<—  Oooooo look at this one! Oh wow, dear book… you just had to go and be exactly what I wanted to read right now, and shift my whole TBR list again, didn’t you? Yep. You just had to be a “forbidden-y feeling” teacher-student romance book that I’m hearing has alllll the feels and is more about emotion than steam (which is exactly what I want right now). Okay, really, I just want to thank you, sweet book, for giving me my biggest blurb jolt of the day (and of the week?) and I’m SO excited to start you.

*sigh* I just LOVE new release day. I get to learn about all sorts of tasty-looking goodies! Books make me spontaneous. LOL! :P

Summer: Loving Mr. Daniels was so good!! Highly recommend to all!!Lori: I’m about halfway through and loving – total feels book!

Maryse: I am EXCITED!!!!! :D

Lisa: One of the best forbidden romances EVER. I love me some Daniel Daniels

Maryse: Ohhhh I LOVE THE SOUND of that!

Teri: AMAZING book! It’s not your typical forbidden romance!

Charity: Heard it was amazing!!!!! A friend texted me this morning and said she stayed up all night!!! Can’t wait!

Maryse: Yep… that cinches it. TONIGHT I’ve got a date with Mr. Daniels. YAY ME!!!! :D

So can you guess what I’m reading next? LOL! But you know me ‘n my current TBR list. It’s loaded in awesome, I just know it, but I can’t help myself with this juicy piece of temptation.

Oh? What else looks tempting below? LOTS! Like… KING’S (’cause a reader mentioned KMM’s Fever-feel, and I’m hoping that translates to “Barrons-feel”). LOL!! :P YES PLEASE!! Perfectly Damaged (schizophrenic heroine…), Sweet Filthy Boy (meet in Vegas, and she spontaneously goes to France with him…), Tempting Love (she’s pining for the single father across the street. I love pining!! It hurts so goooooood), and Somebody Like You (mourning her deceased soldier husband, and suddenly comes face to face with his estranged twin). Decisions, decisions… however mine is already made (at least for tonight). But, I also noted a bunch more that sound right up our alley, below. :D

What are you guys reading next?

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

  • Perfectly Damaged by E.L. Montes <— This one sounds different and up our potentially-angsty alley! It’s about a woman with “Schizoaffective disorder” and the man that wants to be with her. Veronica loved it: “I devoured this beautiful tale in 3 hours. I could not put it down. I laughed, cried, and actually gasped at one stage!! It portrays Jenna’s mental illness in a heartbreaking way, I felt for her the whole way through the book, and reading her interact with Logan and pull herself away from her inner demons was breathtaking. It shows how love can be devastating and fulfilling all at the same time……

Cuba was all sorts of hot and cold and amazing! I read this straight through, and when it was over I kept trying to flip the pages hoping for more! I’m pretty sure you’ll love it Maryse!
  • Very Wicked Things (Briarcrest Academy #2) by Ilsa Madden-Mills <— Melanie says: “Both are absolutely fantastic!! Cuba and Dovey made me go crazy!!! Must, must buy!! And Ilsa Madden-Mills is pretty damn kick arse too.

Her attempts to create a new life for herself are ambushed when she arrives home one evening—and finds her husband waiting for her.

For the AOP fans, Tethered by LD Davis is currently .99! It’s a book on Emmys best friend, and I heard it’s an angsty one!

Amy May 13, 2014 at 1:32 PM

Maryyyyyyse! I’m stuck in a freaking rut! And yep, I’m using my whiny voice here. I finished Tempt My Heart, and that makes *two* books in a row where I skimmed quite a bit and felt pretty indifferent by the time I finished each. Ugh, I don’t know if I am being too critical or if I’m just jaded. Or just being a bee with an itch. Or all three. Aw, hell…

Okay, I’m shooting for Loving Mr. Daniels or Perfectly Damaged (realllllly liked her Disastrous series). I’m leaning towards LMD – teacher-student forbidden stuff is sounding good right about now. ;)

Amy May 13, 2014 at 1:38 PM

Lindsay, that’s Donya, right? Ooooh, maybe I’ll start that one. I *loved* the AOP series. It’s a good one, right Maryse? Oh, that’s right…you haven’t read it yet! :P Alright, taking my cranky a** out of here now…

Lindsay May 13, 2014 at 1:56 PM

Amy, That would be the one, I snuck in the prologue during work and Luke is in it! That’s just the prologue! I didn’t even know this was related! Maryse needs to get on this AOP bandwagon. She’s missing out big time. ;)

Donya May 13, 2014 at 2:09 PM

Wait…What? What is AOP and why is my name being used? Is there a book with a character with my name!!?? OOOHHHH…I’m soooo buying that!!!

Donya May 13, 2014 at 2:11 PM

IT IS MY NAME!!! Oh I have found a new series!!! Thanks guys!

Lindsay May 13, 2014 at 2:21 PM

Donya, yay! The series is called Accidentally on purpose and you can get the trilogy for 2.99. This series will give you major anxiety but it is so worth it. Hope you love it!

Amy May 13, 2014 at 2:26 PM

Lindsay, I actually bought Tethered when it came out and knew it was related to AOP, but I never actually read it. It just moved up on my TBR list again though.

LOL @ Donya!! If you don’t like spoilers though and plan on reading the AOP series, read Accidentally on Purpose first (the first book in the AOP series). The other two AOP books won’t be spoiled by Tethered (I’m pretty sure?) but the first book would be spoiled as there is a love triangle in it. If not, have fun reading your namesake’s book! :)

Amy May 13, 2014 at 2:28 PM

P.S. – But I *do* recommend reading the AOP series, Donya. Lindsay’s right – anxiety, angst, the whole bit. *giggle*

Donya May 13, 2014 at 2:37 PM

Right out of reading “The Driven Trilogy” – shall we say “out of the pot and into the fire” – I’m such a glutton for punishment but I have to read it now!

Lauren May 13, 2014 at 2:43 PM

The last Thorne series book by Mia Michelle is out!!! Been waiting a long time for this 1

Tessa May 13, 2014 at 2:43 PM

OMG. I was gonna buy Scala today and also Very Wicked Things, but King has totally made me squirrel! Serious “Barron” feeling. I’m only on the first one but definite Hot!!!

Marit May 13, 2014 at 2:48 PM

Ooooh, I love tuesdays;) Maryse, I have just started The Afterlife saga again, and I cannot stop LOVING the Dravens:) Just saying..<3 I'm still looking for books in the same league. I thought of starting the Morning feever series by Karen Marie, When I'm done with the Afterlife books. And Darkhouse by Karina Halle. Have any of you enjoyed these books?:) I know I will get a big book-hangover when I'm done with the Dravens :-O

Meg May 13, 2014 at 3:17 PM

I am sooooooooooooooooo in a reading rut too! I have been reading to be done rather than not wanting my book to end. I want something AMAZING–can’t put it down–read it at every stop light–angsty–major, hot book boyfriend–fun–hilarious heroine–sexy–steamy–kind of read! Is that too hard? Any recommendations?

Marit May 13, 2014 at 3:26 PM

I feel the same way as you, Meg. That’s what I gave up and started my favorite book of all times;) Have you read the Afterlife saga? I LOVE love love looooooooove these books :)

Amy May 13, 2014 at 4:31 PM

YES, Meg, exactly!!

By the way, the Captive series by Erica Stevens is really, really good if you like PNR. Braith is just…well, he’s no Edward. ;) I swear I fell for him more with each book. And! She is continuing the series but following other characters’ stories. :D

Maryse May 13, 2014 at 6:02 PM

Ohhhh yesssss Accidentally on Purpose… that’s the one with the guy that is so BAD… such a jerk that many didn’t know how he could possibly be redeemed, right?

Oh yah… what the heck is taking me so long to read that. That’s right up my alley! :P

Maryse May 13, 2014 at 6:02 PM

Donya… LOL!! I love that you caught your name in the comments like that! That was hilarious. :D

Maryse May 13, 2014 at 6:03 PM

Tessa!!! Keep me up to date with the Barrons-feels, ’cause I’m SO looking for another alpha that “I love to hate to love” again. That one is calling me…

Maryse May 13, 2014 at 6:04 PM

Yep, Marit and Meg. I get you both. I definitely don’t continue reading after a certain point if I’m just not into it. Well… that’s not true… every once in awhile I push myself (if I think I might miss something big, or I’m just “missing” something altogether), but there are just so many books out there, and I read to have fun, so… you know. ;)

Maryse May 13, 2014 at 6:08 PM

Gah Amy! I was so busy Book Bashing (the signing, not actually “book-bashing” < — LOL!!!) that I haven’t started any new books this week (and therefore didn’t read “Tempt My Heart”. The last one I read was…? Was Push? Oh no…. it was “Look After You” and then I went into full-work mode.

Bummer that you didn’t connect to it as much as I’d been told we would. *sigh*

But I’m back home now, and ready to get into Mr. Daniels… let’s see if this one “does it” for me. ;)

No work tonight for me!!! Just reading and chatting with u guys! :D

Maryse May 13, 2014 at 6:22 PM

Oh and Amy I just bought more nudes. *shakes head* (and yet I LOVE ‘em). Mind you they both looked much pinker in the containers, but on me… nude. LOL!

Bite “Lip Contour” in nutmeg (and I love it ’cause it neutrals out my “spot pink” “La Laque Fever” gloss a little… which I love). I had a similar lipliner color from Mac called “Dervish”, and I love it but it doesn’t go on very well. The lighter colors I always have to dig into my lipline hard, to make ‘em show up… but this new ones goes on nice!

And then I bought “Nails, inc. “Gel effect polish” in Mayfair lane thinking it would be pinker than it was… and well you guessed it. Nude. So nude it’s naked. ;) I find this one a bit streaky, and a bit clunky. I have yet to find nail polish that I love as much as Illamasqua…

Marguerite Farfaglia May 13, 2014 at 6:23 PM

Yes!! Elizabeth Reyes came out with a new book!! I love her. It sounds so good!!!

Marguerite Farfaglia May 13, 2014 at 7:09 PM

Oh, and have you read Anna Banks’ series? Of Neptune (The Syrena Legacy #3) came out today. I’m so excited! I’ve waited like a year for this book to come out!

Amy May 13, 2014 at 7:13 PM

What the heck is taking you so long to read AOP, you ask? Maybe it’s all of those yummy new releases that keep coming out. ;) You may have been doing the fun “Book Bashing” stuff, but I was busy doing my own book bashing in my head. *snicker* Not nice, I know…

You *really* need to get one of Urban Decay’s Naked palettes which have neutral eye shadows but also some color thrown in there as well – that will help brighten up all the nudes you keep getting, LOL! All three are beautiful, but my favorites are the Naked original and Naked2. Um, yeah…I have all three. They’re so pretty though! I was going to mention the new MAC Lustre lipstick I picked up in Fresh Brew (I’m in love!), but seeing as how it is a total and complete nude, well… :P

Okay, Mr. Daniels it is tonight!! :D

Amy May 13, 2014 at 7:17 PM

Oh! And check out Zoya’s Naturel collection. I bought all six (no comments, ‘kay??) when it came out, and OMG they are beautiful and some are nudish and others have color! The Zoya polishes tend to go on smoothly and build up nicely with 2 to 3 coats – I haven’t had any issues with it being “clunky.” ;)

Linda May 13, 2014 at 7:59 PM

I finished To Professor, With Love last night by Linda Kage and LOVED it. I’d recommend reading Price of a Kiss first as the main characters in this book are in TPWL and there is a scene where you won’t get the full effect if you haven’t read it first. Loooved both and the author writes in a way that makes me want to read every word. They truly are that good. Really look forward to next in Forbidden Men series.

Rachel May 13, 2014 at 8:55 PM

Loving Mr. Daniels is a must read for anyone who loves teacher/student stories. It was so good! Just one part that was a little too much (it was just something that was so out of left field that it took me,out of the story for a minute), but for the most part it was perfect! Funny, interesting characters, lots of good and achy feelings, no cliffy, so all wrapped up. Read it!

Rebecka May 13, 2014 at 8:59 PM

Started Wicked Nights today. I promised myself at least a new release and a new and old TBR selection each week because I’ll never catch up the way my TBR keeps growing!!

I really liked the Company of Killers. Swan and the Jackal being my fav of them.

The Dravesn!! Afterlife and Captive are both fantastic PNR series. Have you read Fae Chronicles??? Yes I’m pushing this series AGAIN!! LOVE IT!

Marisa May 13, 2014 at 9:05 PM

Just finished The Year We Fell and loved it! It’s sweet and funny and sometimes makes you cry. Not the ugly cry but the empathy kind of cry. It’s the kind of book that makes you want to be 18 again and in college with the characters so you could be their friend. Sorry, Maryse, no angst, but well written and it pulls you inside the story.

Maryse May 13, 2014 at 10:15 PM

So far I’m saying “Loving Mr. Daniels” is the closest in “feel” and emotion, and connection and sweetness and touching-ness to “Slammed”. I don’t want to say a copy, ’cause it’s got it’s own things going on, but the feel and overall progression and pacing of the story? If I were to recommend a “What to Read After Slammed”? THIS!!! This one for sure.

And you know… sometimes a girl just wants to read another like Slammed, you know? I’m loving Mr. Daniels myself. ;)

Amy May 13, 2014 at 10:21 PM

I like Rebecka’s idea for tackling her TBR list. If you can stick to that then you have more willpower than me! Hell, I think everyone here has more willpower than me, even Maryse…or except maybe Maryse. *giggle* :P

And Loving Mr. Daniels is looking good so far! *fingers crossed*

Amy May 13, 2014 at 10:24 PM

Maryse, right?!? I’m verrrrry happy right now climbing out of my rut. :D I so needed this one.

Susan May 13, 2014 at 10:54 PM

I read both of the KING books and I LOVED them. Dying and I do mean dying to read the next one!!!

Rebecca May 13, 2014 at 10:59 PM

Added heaps to my Goodreads, but I one-clicked Kings, Chosen, and the Captive boxed set (can’t resist 99c sales!!) I’m currently reading and loving Renee Carlino’s Nowhere But Here (so dreamy!!), so can’t wait for her pre-order in November!! And the Lust boxed set has some of my absolute favourites, and some authors I’ve been dying to check out. Thanks for your list!!

Tessa May 13, 2014 at 11:29 PM

Just finished both of the King books out and definitely a Barron feel. Not as awesome as Fever, but really, really good.

Cass May 14, 2014 at 4:05 AM

Hey Maryse…you forgot to add to the pre-order for Unraveled by K. Bromberg. Goes live on Sunday if Amazon approves it she says. I got & read it before the Bend collection was pulled by Amazon. I know there’s lots of talk about it but damn, it’s HOT! Sooo not the Driven books. K nailed how so many of us married women feel, and then she makes you question how you can be turned on at the same time being uncomfortable by pushing you outside of your comfort zone. Like a train wreck you want to but don’t want to see. You know the outcome but it’s what gets you there that is wowzers. Definitely had me questioning myself and then hinting to the hubby afterwards…lol

Sue Lee May 14, 2014 at 9:51 AM

I just finished Loving Mr. Daniels this morning and loved it. I agree with you, Maryse, it did remind me of Slammed (which I LOOOVE). And, I can’t believe you haven’t read POS–it’s awesome. I’ve been getting nagged to read Against the Cage, I think I’m going to start it this afternoon. It’s an ARC which usually aren’t as good. Fingers crossed. I’ve been reading some great books lately and I want to keep on with the awesomeness streak. Happy readying ladies (and gentlemen ?). : )

Kindra May 14, 2014 at 10:13 AM

Oh good Lord …. I stumbled upon this website while looking for reviews of Megan Hart’s Deeper. I’ve been struggling trying to find something to read … No more though, looks like I’ll be busy reading for a while based on all the recommendations here. Gotta say thanks !

Jean May 14, 2014 at 10:25 AM

Hi guys! Been incognito for a couple days but I’m back! I feel like I am in the same rut as everyone else…..Just reading to finish and get them off my list. I think I will try the AOP series which I know I downloaded already. I did 1-click the Kings books…. They look good….. And a couple others…lol!!

And I really wanted Sweet Filthy Boy and Somebody Like You but those prices……gah!….. gonna have to hope they go on sale or eventually I will break down and buy them; )

Amy May 14, 2014 at 11:08 AM

Jean!! It looks like Loving Mr. Daniels is the go-to book around here right now – it pulled me out of my rut! Oh man, was I in a rut. And craaaanky about it. I’m curious to see what you think of the AOP series! :)

Kindra, keep coming around here and you’ll be a one-click addict in no time. ;)

I read all about your “crankiness” Amy……haha! Yeah I was thinking about Loving Mr Daniels but I just recently read Slammed and Undone so I need a change!

Amy May 14, 2014 at 12:06 PM

In that case, AOP will be perfect. At least, that’s what *I* think. ;)

Sue Lee May 14, 2014 at 12:19 PM

OMG..I meant AOP not POS (Freudian slip). I meant, I really liked AOP series. It is definitely not a POS.

Jean May 14, 2014 at 2:33 PM

Lol Sue Amn!

Amy May 14, 2014 at 5:15 PM

*snort* I was wondering what the POS series was!

Sue Lee May 14, 2014 at 7:53 PM

LOL. I want to reiterate…I loved AOP! I don’t want the author to think I didn’t love it or that I was being mean. What was on my mind? On a different note: began Against the CAge and holy cow…WOW. I’m on a good book frenzy.

Just finished the 3rd book in the Breath of Life series. Definitely had some angst. While there were editing problems and the writing was choppy, I stayed with it because of the storyline and wanting to know what happened in the “OR that night.” Paxton and Jack certainly take you on a roller coaster ride with their “wishy-washy” relationship, or lack of one. I admit I skimmed thru parts of the book and was yelling -just make up your damn minds. The big kicker is there is quite the twist at the end of book 3 that ends on a cliffhanger and there is a 4th book, due out flu/winter!!!

I still feel like I am in a book rut because I haven’t read a book lately that
was like what Meg said above- looking for something amazing, well-written, and that I can’t put down. Ugh!!!

**Snort**I meant Fall not flu!

Just finished Sweet Filthy Boy and it was AMAZING. I’m just so sad it’s over. I was in a major book slump for weeks, couldnt get swept away and this book did it for me. It’s just sooooooooo good! I can’t touch anything right now bcuz I’m mourning the end and I miss the characters already but after the space I will definitely read Loving Mr. Daniels next!

Julie May 15, 2014 at 12:02 AM

I rarely if ever post, but live by your suggestions. Loving Mr.Daniels I guess is next! (Or maybe Frenched). But…I just finished Monster in His Eyes and had to tell you about it since I haven’t seen you mention it! He’s in the mob (she doesn’t know it), twice her age (she’s 18), and hot as all get out! Second book comes out in the fall & I can’t wait!

All this praise for Accidentally on Purpose made me go and by the thing. I’m addicted. :-)

Maryse May 15, 2014 at 11:07 AM

Oh TESSA!!! Okay maybe I’ll make that one next. TONIGHT!!! YAY. Oh gosh if someone could remind me when I get home and start scrolling through my TBR list trying to choose a new one… that would be so helpful. LOL!

Amy May 15, 2014 at 11:48 AM

*snicker* All of you reading AOP are gonna get ovary punched!! *dancing around*

Amy May 15, 2014 at 11:51 AM

Um, that didn’t sound nearly as odd when it was just in my head. I’m probably too wound up to be hanging out here…I’m just gonna go burn off this caffeine…or something… *giggling and ducking out*

Tessa May 15, 2014 at 11:53 AM

Then read Fae Chronicles or Fallen Crest! :-P Both are insanely good.

cheryl May 15, 2014 at 6:14 PM

Started reading AOP. So far not “feeling it.” I assume it gets better because of all the positive recs. Fingers crossed this gets me out of my book rut!!! :)

cheryl May 16, 2014 at 6:19 PM

Switched from AOP to Eversea. I loved it!!! Just started book 2. THIS has gotten me out of my book rut!!!
