Judy: WOW! Amazing deal! but I can say without a doubt that it was worth every penny!!! And it’s the most I have ever paid for an e-book!!
Diane: I’m a broken record lol but all her books are amazing love stories
Beth: This is an amazing book, but it is GUT-WRENCHING! Be warned. I was emotionally drained for days after reading this.
Salma: The movie is on the making yay! Can’t wait!
Louise: Oh my! Just one clicked! Not too excited about crying for days ….we’ll see!
Yessss I’m still in moving-mode. Unpacking, cleaning, and I have some furniture being delivered throughout the week (including a desk of my blogging room and another bookshelf!! But of course! Can’t have too many bookshelves). And I hear that the “negative reviews” regarding my desk set is the “building it” time… and difficulty. *snort* This is gonna be fun. Maybe I should video my attempt.
So I’m still reading-time deficient, but not so much so that I can’t play in our books and add to my TBR list. 😉 I’ll have lots of catching up to do.
And I definitely have time to include some obvious release highlights right now (those that are making it straight to my TBR list or being read ASAP). That one over there to the left (Dark Due bundle) makes me dark-squee. Or is that more like a growl-squee? LOL!! 😛 And Made: A Sempre Novel by J.M. Darhower (which can be read as a standalone, but it’s perfect for mafia romance lovers!!). Anguish (I MUST start this series, he’s a prisoner and an MC member and the prison guard (she!) gets kidnapped by them…), Prince Lestat (Anne Rice is back!!!), Smiley (for all of us New Species fans!), Cherish (’cause I loved book #1… all that romantic tension & personal angst) and Last Light (M. Pierce!!!! My biggest *release-squee* of the day!!)
P.P.S. Let me know if I’m missing any or if you loved any (from this list or elsewhere).
BARGAINS (NOTE: bargain priced when I added them, but prices can change on Amazon, so make sure to check before you finalize your order).

At a bachelorette party where I was a stripper, dressed in a cop uniform with pants that suddenly got way too tight. And she had to be so fine. “Ooooh, honey, you’re one big officer,” said a sultry voice behind me as I watched Charlotte in the other room, chatting with the bride. A hand stroked my hip and hesitated before sliding a bit lower, filling a palm with my ass. “Arrest me, Officer. I’ve been a bad, bad girl.” With one look at the source of the voice, my night went from Oh, man to Oh, no. That voice? That hand? That was my mother. “ *snort* !!!!
