WEDNESDAY BREAKING NEWS UPDATE!!! KARINA HALLE’S LATEST IS LIVE!!! (and she co-wrote Rocked Up: A Novel with her husband). :D !!! ROCK STAR ALERT! ➔➔➔➔➔➔

She’s auditioning for the band…

“I’ve been watching him since I was a teenager.

He didn’t notice me back then and it didn’t matter. Brad Snyder, guitarist and singer for one of the world’s greatest bands, was my entire life…”

HAPPY NEW RELEASE DAY!!! The biggest and craziest of the week (and looking at THIS one… maybe of the month!). In fact… just that one there to the left should give you an idea of todays book release awesomeness!!! Many of our original-indie favorites are here, including one that rocked my world a few years ago, ( and so MANY of my fellow readers, Tiffanie DeBartolo). OH EM GEE. I need to read this book!!!!

Tessa: I have no idea what I’m going to read today… I want it to be tomorrow. Fallen Crest FOREVER! :) Yet, until then, um… no idea what to read.

Grey: Tessa… Fallen Crest Forever ~ Tomorrow?!? *Squee* and I’m gonna have an easy-ish day tomorrow and I’m off Wednesday. But… *pout* I’m not ready for it to be over… *sniffle*

So what am I extra excited for on this list? Eeeeeep!! SO EASY! The Simplicity of Cider (sounds sweeeeeeet – a woman just trying to live a simple life on her farm, and the single father, and young son that shows up there. Plus I hear the other two books in this series are awesome!!), God-Shaped Hole (one of our original tear-jerker classics just got picked up by a big publisher, and re-released with a  new cover, and I haven’t read it yet, even though I’ve owned the original ebook AND the original print book for years). I can’t WAIT to read it, so now that’s it’s re-released, I’ve officially selected my NEXT book that I’m starting tonight. YAY ME!!! The Wright Boss (K.A. Linde’s latest, and I love office romance stories!!), and Plus One (more office romance fun and it’s Aleatha Romig’s latest that sounds totally different than what she’s written in the past) AND!!! Gwendy’s Button Box (STEPHEN KING!!! MINE MINE MINE!!!! Omg that blurb gave me the heebie-jeebies and I’ve waiting for it and it’s now LIVE!!!)

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

Ela May 16, 2017 at 11:04 AM


Tessa May 16, 2017 at 3:07 PM

Leslie, lol I don’t trust that one either. If Amy says it hurts… And Ela and Robin says it hurts… Yeah.

Can I swoon a bit over Fallen Crest Forever? Just a bit? Because, this one is so emotions and feels like the first three, it deserves a bit of swooning. Though, of course, Logan is making me crack up big time. :D Because… Loganisms. Past that though, running is important again, feels are there, and yeah, just everything.

Cheryl May 16, 2017 at 3:47 PM

Not touching GSH either. Huge list to pour over Maryse. Thanks!!

Ela May 16, 2017 at 4:36 PM

Here I quote Robin: “hurt is the new horny” although she used “sad” instead of “hurt”!

R. Renee May 16, 2017 at 4:37 PM


Ela May 16, 2017 at 4:41 PM


Leslie M May 16, 2017 at 5:56 PM

Well… I loved it [Fallen Crest Forever]. (I know. Everyone figured that.) I’ll be honest, I haven’t enjoyed one this much since the third book. I already know in a few months I’ll be re-reading it again. I had that many feels and it ended perfectly.

Jan May 16, 2017 at 7:33 PM

Ashley I liked Sustained too. Funny, sweet and hot. The kids are cute and so real too. Get it while it’s cheap, peeps.

Tessa May 16, 2017 at 8:20 PM

It was goooooooood, Grey. :) Though nice and angsty. (On that note, I just added the word angsty to my computer’s dictionary. I’m sick of seeing the red squiggly line.)

Tessa, FCF……you had me at Loganisms!! LOL!

GSH…..nope, not for me right now…..trying to stay away from sad books for the moment.

Linda, I loved Sex in the Sticks too (even though the cover was somewhat lacking).

Thanks for all your hard work as usual Maryse……my TBR has just exploded! And I NEED to go buy Sustained now!

I had pre-ordered Rocked Up and was happy to see it appear on my Kindle!

FLT: There was something about the time between three and four o’clock in the morning. (The Darkest Corner by Liliana Hart – Chapter 1). But seriously, the Prologue hooked me right in from the beginning.

Amy May 18, 2017 at 2:57 PM

Ladies!! My lovely ladies who I miss sooooooo freaking much!!! I am so out of the loop…Fallen Crest Forever came out?!? And Maryse is reading God-Shaped Hole?!?!? GAHHHHHHHHH!! *thunk*

*gets Manny and red wine ready for Maryse*

I have nothing going on tonight so it’s a “catch up on posts and comments” evening for me. :D

Amy May 18, 2017 at 3:08 PM

I’m still working on Love Me in the Dark, but I am seriously loving it. The only reason it’s taking me so long is not having a whole lot of reading time, and I am at a point in the book where I need to be able to devour it in one sitting so I can get through the angst I just KNOW is coming. This pretty much sums up how I act every time I go to pick it up…

Jean May 18, 2017 at 3:15 PM

Hi Amy! Missed you girl! Someone else I know did not like Love Me in the Dark which I did not want to hear…..glad you are loving it and hopefully you can devour it tonight! (I already bought it because…..yeah, the cover…..heehee)!

Amy May 18, 2017 at 3:15 PM

Last comment before I run back to the craziness that is my life right now…the RT convention needs to be moved to Chicago STAT!! We would all be in heaven. *sigh*

Jean May 18, 2017 at 3:18 PM

Ummmm Amy, I’ve never even tried Nutella…….

Amy May 18, 2017 at 3:20 PM

My friend!! *tackle hugs Jean*

Yes, I’m loving it so far. I’m a little annoyed with the POV that was just thrown in (would have been better without it IMHO) but I just know some hurt is a-coming. :?

Amy May 18, 2017 at 3:23 PM

*GASP* WHAT?!? Sacrilege!!!!! We need to remedy your Nutella situation asap.

*shakes head sadly*

Jean May 18, 2017 at 3:24 PM

Amy, as usual, you bring a HUGE smile to my face and I needed that! Love ya! Now, get back to your craziness!

Tessa May 18, 2017 at 4:51 PM

You all! This is insane!

The Rocker Series: Demon’s Wings Collection by Terri Anne Browning is 99 cents! ALL OF THE DEMON WINGS BOOKS! *eyes wide* You all must get it!

MichelleS May 18, 2017 at 6:40 PM

I’ve been sooooo busy this week. Need to go back & catch up on comments.

I finished From Rags, Ela’s “pick for me” May book.

On my very short TBR list are:
- The Chosen – JR Ward, as my “May Challenge” read – next in a series. It’s a library loan, so I can’t wait on that.

- Red Queen – I’m on Chapter 6, library loan, need to finish that!

MichelleS May 18, 2017 at 6:42 PM

After that, I’ve got Love Me in the Dark, and Borrowing Blue. I’ve already purchased those, and they had great reviews.

MichelleS May 18, 2017 at 6:48 PM

Fine Tessa!!! I’m adding it to my purchases. Oy! When am I going to get to read an entire rocker series? Oh yeah! I’m off all summer. Heehee

Cheryl May 18, 2017 at 8:26 PM

Amy, I know what you mean about the pov. I think the angst level and overall feel of the book would have been better with only one pov. Don’t get me wrong it’s Mia Asher, so I loved the writing, but it’s hard to live up to Arsen. It had angst but sadly I thought it was quickly resolved and of course I wanted more to the ending.

Cheryl May 18, 2017 at 8:28 PM

(Prologue/Then): “I sucked my thumb, huddling in the corner of the dingy room.” Good Lies by Charlotte West.

I’m really liking this so far.

Tessa May 18, 2017 at 9:17 PM

Michelle! If after the first book you aren’t hooked… okay. Four of the books are standalones. One is a his POV and the last is an after the HEA book.

Maryse May 18, 2017 at 9:37 PM

Adding it to the Friday list, Tessa!!! :D

Maryse May 18, 2017 at 9:45 PM

I am DYING to know what you think Amy. If you love it, I’m going in ASAP.

Tessa May 18, 2017 at 10:03 PM

Yeah! Everyone should read it. :D Thank you Maryse!
