in Latest Book Releases

HAPPY NEW RELEASE DAY!!! This is the last “big” one of the month, and you can tell we’re heading into our holiday season with all the sweet Christmas romances that just went live. PLUS!!!!! If you missed yesterday’s post, this was a great surprise release day of our absolute favorites that released their books one day early. You’ll see what I mean ;)  ➜ Nine Monday Early Bird Book Releases

<— But what I’m especially excited about is that one to the left. The conclusion to the “duet” that I just read and LOVED, is live today!!! I 4.5 starred both, and now you can devour ‘em without having to deal with a wait over a cliffhanger. ;) Two couple’s stories, but that intertwine dramatically and MUST be read in order to appreciate the awesomeness. Some scary stuff, plenty of steam, and of course, swoon-worthy!!! If you’re in the mood for that infuriatingly bossy alpha-male done right? These are for you!!! In fact, here are my reviews of ‘em both: Book Review – Retrieval by Aly Martinez AND Book Review – Transfer (The Retrieval Duet Book 2) by Aly Martinez

Wanna know what else I’m excited about? Tee hee!!! ;)  The Rule Book (it’s in the bargains section, but it sounds right up my romance alley, ’cause this is an office romance! She’s trying HARD not to crush on her broody, rich boss… and she’s breaking all of her own rules. It sounds steamy AND hilarious), The Vanishing Year (psych-thriller where she’s living the perfect life, but she’s also using a fake name to keep herself safe), Making the Play (sports star romance, and while the cover doesn’t say much for me, the blurb sure did! She’s a single mom, and he’s her son’s football star hero. And they accidentally meet), His Last Name (this one sounds like it’s going to be like those infuriating and addicting night time “soaps”. Rich, maybe conniving? women that are the wives of famous sports stars), Sparking the Fire (she’s a famous actress trying to get back in good graces, and he’s a firefighter that will be helping her with her next role)… BREAKING NEWS UPDATE!!!! I just added this to my mini-blurb jolt list: Hustle (OMG THAT BLURB!!! Football star and a girl trying to escape rumors and be low profile… but with him that’s hard. AND!!!! One of our fellow readers said it was “Angsty as f**kkk” <— eek OOOOOOOOOOH!!!!!)


For those going on a road trip soon, or maybe you’ve got some projects that require both hands this weekend but still allows you to “listen”… check out the free audible trial + 2 free audiobooks deal —>

  • AND! Here’s the fun-tool again! —> Find out which of YOUR Kindle books are available as audiobooks at a BARGAIN-PRICE! <— This thing is so cool (Amazon calls it “Matchmaker“)! It’s an Amazon feature, that scans your Kindle books and will list all of the ones you have that are also available as an audiobook at a discounted price (not normal audiobook prices). This way, you can switch back and forth, seamlessly between your ebooks and your audiobooks. VERY COOL!

Rock Addiction by Nalini Singh is currently free. It is the first book in the series. I read the second book in the series in a day so I was excited to pick this up.

Amanda Ruane September 27, 2016 at 4:27 PM

Thank you, ladies! And Thank you, Kathy P. I am getting the free book.

Grey September 27, 2016 at 6:33 PM

Outsider by Olivia Cunning. MINE MINE MINE! Envision if you will those irritating as f*ck seagulls from Finding Nemo, that’s me…

Wanna know what else I’m uber stoked about. Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas has been officially listed as “completed!” YAY! She’s releasing on October 21st… I’m thinking a sick day is going to be in order! This one has been on my radar for MONTHS!!!

Anyway, today was an awful day and I’m going to hang it up early. Seems like yesterday was a real explosion of early gifts and everyone is still soaking in that list… do I need send out a search party?!?

Maryse September 27, 2016 at 7:09 PM

I LOVE those seagulls, Grey!!! LOL!

Maryse September 27, 2016 at 7:10 PM

I’m here!!! :D But yes, I suspect yesterday’s releases have everyone tied to their e-readers. LOL!

Grey September 27, 2016 at 7:21 PM

Maryse, so… what has your attention the most right now??

Tessa September 27, 2016 at 7:50 PM

Lol I got caught up in a series. The writing is really good and the story is kind of different which is a godsend. Except that part where it begins like mine did.

Maryse September 27, 2016 at 7:54 PM

Oh yay!! I have 4 already that I have one-clicked.

The Goal (which I’m into right now), and that scary looking one (Pretty Little Dolls or something? I bought that one too. And The Hustle, and “The Rule Book”.

Tessa September 27, 2016 at 8:08 PM

I can’t wait to see what you think of the Goal. The opinions are all over the place. :D

Thank you Kathy! I’ve been wanting that one for a long time.

bev September 27, 2016 at 8:23 PM

Flowers from the Storm is 1.99 right now. Who hasn’t read it?

Maryse September 27, 2016 at 8:37 PM

I haven’t!!!! :D

Maryse September 27, 2016 at 8:38 PM

Oh oh.

*ducks incoming bev peanuts*

Tessa September 27, 2016 at 8:55 PM

I did! I did! When I was sixteen. :D

bev September 27, 2016 at 9:17 PM

Lol. Tessa having a Hermione moment there.

Maryse, I think it is wonderfully written. The way she wrote the hero is amazing. However it isn’t for everyone, though many HR readers love it. I think I’ve thrown peanuts at you before, just maybe not as enthusiastically. But, you know, if you wanted to read it when the rest of us finally tackle The Bronze Horseman. …..

Jan September 27, 2016 at 11:13 PM

I’m looking forward to Beautiful :D

Maryse September 27, 2016 at 11:28 PM

Oh good idea bev!!!

When will you be reading The Bronze Horseman???

Maryse September 27, 2016 at 11:28 PM

I need to read that series, Jan…

Jan September 27, 2016 at 11:36 PM

Oh Maryse, you have to read them! As with any series, some are better than others. Beautiful Stranger and Beautiful Player are my favs. Pretty saucy!! But great characters and great relationship building. The new one coming out next week is going to be the final one :( It’s about Jensen, hot brother of the gorgeous Hanna from Beautiful Player. OMG. Hanna and Will. It’s all coming back to me! Can’t wait for Jensen’s story. Aaah. Look out. I’m going to start squeeing. Better get me a lemon drop martini, stat!

Grey September 28, 2016 at 6:47 AM

Jan, so with you! Love the Beautiful series! Will & Hanna are my faves although there are no bad couples here!! Have you gotten the first couple of chapters yet thru their email newsletter??? Because awww the gang!!!

Fabi September 28, 2016 at 7:26 AM

I love the Beautiful series too. I’m not quite caught up with it. I can’t believe the last book is coming out.

bev September 28, 2016 at 8:38 AM

I have a few from that series unread. Need to get to them. I don’t want to read the first one though. Just doesn’t appeal to me.

bev September 28, 2016 at 8:40 AM

Maryse, sometime in October. It would be awesome, but promise I won’t give you a hard time if you don’t care for it, like with JR, lol.

Amy September 28, 2016 at 9:20 AM

I was commenting on Monday’s post yesterday because I forgot there was a Tuesday release list here. Being wrapped up in Retrieval will do that to ya!

I saw “angsty as f**kkk” and CLICK! Except I apparently bought it back in March. *shrugs* Guess it looked good back then, too. ;)

I’m starting Pretty Stolen Dolls today and going in blind…no reviews and no spoilers. Fingers crossed!

Amy September 28, 2016 at 9:21 AM

By the way, F*ck Love is .99 right now. It’s a good “light” Tarryn Fisher read. ;)

Kathy P September 28, 2016 at 11:33 AM

The first three books in Meghan March’s series beneath are bundled and on sale for .99. I had the first two but not the 3rd so picked it up.

bev September 28, 2016 at 3:39 PM

Act Like It by Lucy Parker is .99, right now. I really enjoyed this book. Not an angsty one like I know a lot of you like. But if in the mood for a charming CR with a likable and confident heroine and grumpy hero with a dash of the London theater then this is for you.

Jan September 28, 2016 at 7:24 PM

Thanks Grey. I just went on their website (Christina Lauren – 2 authors who write together) and read the first two chapters of Beautiful. I’m hooked!! Can’t wait for the full book to come out next week!

Bev, I haven’t liked all of the Beautiful books. The novellas were nothing special (I’m not a novella fan anyway), and I didn’t like the first book (Beautiful Bastard) much – the characters weren’t as well developed and it just wasn’t as well written IMO. But the writers have really lifted their game and their writing really improved after that first one.

Traci September 28, 2016 at 7:29 PM

So I read Masked in Music by Ginger Voight and it was soooo good.
5 stars for me. Was not expecting the ending. Not really a cliff hanger but there will be a book 2 in December. Can’t wait!!

Cheryl September 28, 2016 at 8:43 PM

I’m still reading Retrieval and then plan to jump right in reading Transfer. I clicked on Hustle, but already had bought it. Can’t remember all the angst.

Cheryl September 28, 2016 at 9:49 PM

Is Leo James and his “crew” in Retrieval from another one of Aly Martinez’s books?

Maryse September 28, 2016 at 10:32 PM

Traci I LOVE Ginger Voight!!! SHE TOTALLY goes there in angst!!!!!

Maryse September 28, 2016 at 10:33 PM

Good question Cheryl… I can’t remember if it has anything to do with her first series?

Maryse September 28, 2016 at 10:34 PM

Jan that is so good to know! I’ve one clicked a few from that series a while ago, so maybe I can indulge…

Maryse September 28, 2016 at 10:34 PM

bev! I wanted that one. 0.99 cents is perfect for me to one-click it!

Maryse September 28, 2016 at 10:35 PM

Annnnnnnd I just one clicked it. YAY!! Thank you! :D

Maryse September 28, 2016 at 10:36 PM

Amy that one’s pretty great. I have other favorite of hers, but it was plenty “Tarryn Fisher-light” as you said.

Grey September 29, 2016 at 6:01 AM

In addition to Punk 57, and Beautiful. I just found that on October 17th… Twisted Palace by Erin Watt is gonna be live. Looking like October is gonna be great reading!

Leslie M September 29, 2016 at 7:41 AM

I’ve had F*ck Love on my TBR for awhile. It def does not sound “light” …..*gives side eye to Maryse & Amy*

Amy, will it make me bawl me eyes out?? Your love of rip your heart out books scares me to death.

I just finished Karina Halle’s Racing the Sun. LOVED IT! 4.5**** It was perfect slow burn, low angst (which usually bore me) story with hot, broody & grumpy Italian H. Even his name made me swoon. Signor Desiderio Larossa aka Derio.

I’m trying to focus on “oldies” from my TBR….no idea what to read next.

Leslie M September 29, 2016 at 8:22 AM

@ Grey – October IS going to be a good one. I’m gonna buddy read Bronze Horseman series *bites nails in nervous angst* AND the Royals series. Do you know if Twisted Palace is last book? I’ve been holding off starting because of the major cliffy.

Grey September 29, 2016 at 10:23 AM

I hear Twisted Palace is the last… But I don’t know if that’s the final word… You know how these things go sometimes, but it was listed as a trilogy…

R. Renee September 29, 2016 at 10:31 AM

The Royals series may be the first set of books I love to hate. They drove me nuts, everything I don’t like in books and yet, I can’t stop reading them! Guilty pleasure at its finest!

R. Renee September 29, 2016 at 10:42 AM

RUSH Leslie M!!! RUSH!! What the heck??!! Why is that still in your TBR?

Leslie M September 29, 2016 at 11:50 AM

@ R. – Rush is still in my TBR because recs from you and Amy are dangerous, emotional, tear jerkers (ok, how weird…auto correct changed “tear jerkers” to “year learners”… what?!?) that I’m petrified of reading without having a therapist on standby!!!

How the heck I’m EVER going to get thru Bronze Horseman is beyond me!!!

R. Renee September 29, 2016 at 11:52 AM

Leslie!! I wouldn’t rec a book to you like that!! This book has angst, and not even too much if that! It won’t break you! I promise!

Tessa September 29, 2016 at 11:56 AM

Describe the perfect date.
Neighbors by Stylo Fantome

Uh, I don’t know how I feel about it. It’s got a lot of heart, a LOT of steamy times, yet it kind of is, but I’m not sure love triangle, maybe? lol I know that doesn’t make sense, but it’s because both guys are giving off weird signals. Also she’s clueless too, but seriously, it’s because some really odd signals. I am liking it, but seriously am so confused.

Tessa September 29, 2016 at 11:57 AM

Which Rush?

Fabi September 29, 2016 at 11:59 AM

Leslie: “recs from you and Amy are dangerous, emotional, tear jerkers…I’m petrified of reading without having a therapist on standby!!!”
Yes, I save up my money all year so I can afford to read one of their recs. $1.99 eBook + $1999.99 therapist

R. Renee September 29, 2016 at 12:15 PM

Tessa, Emma Scott’s. Maybe it’s me, but I don’t remember it being a big tear jerker. It was the book that made me fall in love with ES.

Fabi! I know better than to rec a heartbreaker to you!!

Grey September 29, 2016 at 12:22 PM

I haven’t read Rush either… Nor Bronze Horseman…

Grey September 29, 2016 at 12:26 PM

Signature crimson flowed upward from the starched white collar of his shirt as Alton Fitzgerald stopped midstep and turned my direction. Entrapment by Aleatha Romig

Fabi September 29, 2016 at 12:29 PM

Right R? You KNOW you’d have to come over and ply me with alcohol and a shoulder to cry on.

Fabi September 29, 2016 at 12:31 PM

“He had chosen the bar because of its name: The Bookstore.”
Not a Game by C. Cardeno

loving it!

Amy September 29, 2016 at 12:34 PM

Oh wow. I was just thinking how quiet it has been around here and how no one is chatting (no notifications in my inbox)…then I come here and realize I never checked the box for followup comments. *giggle*

Leslie, I promise F*ck Love won’t rip your heart out. It isn’t nearly as angsty as The Opportunist, and it isn’t dark and twisty like Mud Vein or Marrow. That’s why we say it’s “light” for Tarryn Fisher. ;) It may rile you up a bit, but no ugly crying and no tummy-eating-itself feelings!

R. Renee September 29, 2016 at 12:34 PM

I’d do that anyway Fabi!

Amy September 29, 2016 at 12:38 PM

OMG Fabi…I am cracking up over your therapist comment. LOL!!!

And back to Leslie…you need to read RUSH!!!! Seriously, that book was beautiful. Again, no ripping your heart out and no ugly crying…just a beautiful story with just the right amount of emotional tension. :D

Amy September 29, 2016 at 12:44 PM


“Daddy always told us to be careful.” ~ Pretty Stolen Dolls by Ker Dukey

Um, Maryse? Didn’t you click this one? Yeah, you gotta read it. ;) I can’t say it’s a 5 star (who knows, maybe that will change?) but I am flying through it right now and loving it!

R. Renee September 29, 2016 at 12:49 PM

I’m reading 3 books at the same time, but I’ll FLT the one that someone on here might appreciate…

“Anna was a good wife, mostly.”

Fabi September 29, 2016 at 12:51 PM

R ? Title? Author? Did you forget a few parts?

Fabi September 29, 2016 at 12:52 PM

Oh, I bet that’s Carnage isn’t it?

Amy September 29, 2016 at 12:52 PM




Fabi September 29, 2016 at 12:52 PM

Amy, that’s a creepy first line. I’m hearing that horror film music playing in the background as I read it.

R. Renee September 29, 2016 at 12:53 PM

Oh hells no!! Carnage? Are you talking to me? You can’t be.

I skipped the title and author on purpose, waiting for Amy’s reaction lol. It’s Hausfrau by Jill Alexander Essbaum.

Amy September 29, 2016 at 12:56 PM

NO Fabi…we will NOT speak of that book. Carnage is in the 7 circles of Hell where it belongs.

Okay, that wasn’t very nice of me. But still…

R is reading Hausfrau!!! I’ve been dying for someone, ANYONE to read it so I can see their reaction. Maybe it will just be “meh” on her part, but that book effed me up BIG TIME.

Fabi September 29, 2016 at 12:58 PM

oh yeah! I saw that she’d started that one Amy and I was excited for you. It’s always special when someone finally takes the plunge and reads a book we’ve been raving about for a while.

R. Renee September 29, 2016 at 1:00 PM

I’m going to Houston this weekend so I’ll have hours of riding time in the car to read! The reviews are divided. The people who don’t like it don’t because of the plot, kind of like Author Anonymous, but I think knowing that going in, I can read it for what it is. And the writing so far is awesome.

Amy September 29, 2016 at 1:00 PM

The part where she is crying and begging to make it all stop…OMG I was sobbing.

She is a hot freaking mess of an antiheroine, but dammit I just wanted everything to work out and for her to be okay.

R. Renee September 29, 2016 at 1:01 PM

Amy rec’d it and I found an autographed hardcover online for $10! I didn’t even know it was signed until I got it in the mail!

Amy September 29, 2016 at 1:07 PM

Exactly, R. Most negative reviews were because she was an adulteress. But I loved the uniqueness of the time jumps and how perfectly they related with and flowed around each other. I can’t think of any other way to describe it.

Amy September 29, 2016 at 1:08 PM

Holy moly, you better update here or on GR because I am going to be stalking your a$$. *snort*

R. Renee September 29, 2016 at 1:09 PM

I will!! :)

Tessa September 29, 2016 at 2:21 PM

lol Btw, the Carnage remark is proof that not all tear jerkers are good. Honestly, I didn’t even cry at the end. *ducks*

Amy, keep us updated on Pretty Little Dolls. I have 10 KU books checked out so I haven’t gotten it yet.

R. Renee September 29, 2016 at 2:23 PM

Exactly! And I only like tear jerkers with an HEA. Mostly anyway! I didn’t cry either. But I did throw my phone and yelled a few expletives before stalking Maryse on twitter for a follow up to fix me.

Fabi September 29, 2016 at 2:45 PM

That right there is my problem. I have to have an HEA if I’m going to consider a book to be a five star read. Books like The Fault in our Stars (which I’ve never read) and It Ends With Us (which I haven’t read either) and Rainfall (which I did read)…they don’t work for me. Other books which are super angsty and maybe even make me cry, I can read every so often as long as there’s an eventual HEA. They’ll never be my preferred reading material, but I can handle them sporadically.

Then there are the “dark” books, which some people lump in with the “emotional” books. I’ve read and loved many of these. The dark books have a different kind of emotion which I can handle better than the “emotional” emotion.

OK…yeah, I’ve now confused myself. Nevermind me.

R. Renee September 29, 2016 at 2:49 PM

The “HEA” in It Ends With Us depends on the reader! It’s kind of fascinating which is the ONLY reason I’d recommend it to someone who wouldn’t usually read that kind of thing. But, only if that person is going in totally blind. If not, it’s still a good book, but loses the wow factor that it has blind.

I’ve only liked a few non HEA books, but they were extremely well done.

Ela September 29, 2016 at 2:57 PM



R. Renee September 29, 2016 at 2:58 PM

HAHAHAHAHA you slay me <3

Ela September 29, 2016 at 3:00 PM

NO FABI!!!!!!!!!!! I totally get what you’re saying emotional emotion vs. emotional cry no happiness!!!!!!!!!!

I still don’t get why you didn’t love the Butterfly Garden as much as I did…*rolls eyes* just kidding…..*ducks* don’t hurt me for bringing it back up again!

Ela September 29, 2016 at 3:05 PM

I did like a few sad books though, I guess it depends how we view that ending to be….???? Like Transcendence by Shay Savage – I balled my eyes out but it was a HEA in my book. And then that one book with the sick girl….Darn I forget the title….she brought back the boy back to “life”, to live life even though she was dying….

Fabi September 29, 2016 at 3:06 PM

The “HEA” in It Ends With Us depends on the reader! <=== That's Rainfall too!!!!

Oh Ela…you had to go there? Well, I guess if anyone does, you have the right to do so. If not for you, I would have burned my Kindle at the stake over that one. *hugs for getting me through it*

Ela September 29, 2016 at 3:11 PM

LMAO FABI!!!!!!!!!! Hugs right back at ya!

Amy September 29, 2016 at 3:12 PM


*slowly raises hand*

HEA or no HEA, I just need feels.

Except Carnage. Nope. That’s a no-go.

Ela September 29, 2016 at 3:12 PM

Highly recommended!
The Haunted Vagina
by Carlton Mellick III

Ela September 29, 2016 at 3:13 PM


Fabi September 29, 2016 at 3:15 PM

Is Carnage anything like The Tied Man or Life of Anna? Those types I can handle.

Ela September 29, 2016 at 3:19 PM


Amy September 29, 2016 at 3:20 PM

So knowing my tastes and preferences, should I stay away from the Book Boyfriend series?

*opens Kindle library*

Aw crap, I have books one and two. :?

And now you HAVE to name the book that shall not be named ’cause I am crazy curious right now…

Fabi September 29, 2016 at 3:21 PM

Ela, I had to go to Amazon to see if you were talking about a real book.

OMG!!! It’s not only real, but there are an amazing number of men who reviewed it. *shakes head in wonder at men’s reading tastes*

Fabi September 29, 2016 at 3:22 PM

Amy, I think Ela is upset about the C……ge book.

Amy September 29, 2016 at 3:24 PM

Oh wait, I think you named it as I was typing my comment. *snicker*

Fabi…Carnage is nothing like TTM. It was too much drama and angst, even for me. That should tell you something. :| I was worn out emotionally by, like, halfway through. And not in a good way.

Amy September 29, 2016 at 3:25 PM

Yep, I’m pretty sure that’s the one she was talking about, Fabi. ;)

Ela September 29, 2016 at 3:39 PM

And there you go Amy naming that damn thing!

Honestly, I love book 1 of Book Boyfriend and the whole Eros concept, I even loved book 2 although looking back I may have a different opinion but when I found out what happens in 3…I WAS NOT A FAN AT ALL! FIRST I WAS ROOTING FOR ONE GUY AND 2. THE EROS CONCEPT BOOK 1 STARTED WITH WAS LOST….AND that’s all I’ll say……

Ela September 29, 2016 at 3:40 PM

Fabi! I just read an amazing review of that Vagina book that makes me wanna read it *gasp*

Fabi September 29, 2016 at 3:44 PM

hahaha Ela. I only read about half of that but — too funny.

R. Renee September 29, 2016 at 3:47 PM

Sorry Amy, but I’m going to have to change my FLT…but I PROMISE to read Hausfrau next!

FLT: “Theo, dear. He wants you.” All In, Full Tilt book 2 by Emma Scott. SQUEE!!!

Fabi September 29, 2016 at 3:50 PM

Omg did you get an ARC?

R. Renee September 29, 2016 at 3:51 PM

The beta version. The ARCs aren’t ready yet.

Amy September 29, 2016 at 3:53 PM

It’s okay, R…squirrelling to that one is forgivable. ;)

R. Renee September 29, 2016 at 4:03 PM

It’s unavoidable! Life is officially on hold.

Fabi September 29, 2016 at 4:15 PM

oh my geeaaawd, we are losing R for the foreseeable future

Grey September 29, 2016 at 4:25 PM

Wait, wtf… I was so confused for a minute. Ela’s shouting and I have no idea what book she’s talking about because I have a metric sh*t ton of book boyfriends… but is there like a legit book 0 The Book Boyfriend? what? huh? gah, I’m quite certain it’s 5pm here in NY….

R. Renee September 29, 2016 at 4:29 PM

haha! No I have to cry to someone!! I want to post every single line but I can’t because everything is a Full Tilt spoiler! That’s the saddest part! LOL

Jean September 29, 2016 at 5:05 PM

Hey guys! Just started Retrieval. Finished The Goal and ended up loving it even though the h initially annoyed me! So sad it’s the end of the series!

Jean September 29, 2016 at 5:08 PM

Cheryl, Leo James was in Among the Echoes (spinoff from Wrecked and Ruined series), but I think he was also a part of the On the Ropes series! Both great series if you haven’t read them yet!

Tessa September 29, 2016 at 5:18 PM

Fabi, don’t read the C book. You wouldn’t like it anyway. Me, my problem was I HATED both the h and the H, but mostly the h. I can’t get past a book where I hate the main character and never feel empathy.

Congrats R! :D

R. Renee September 29, 2016 at 5:21 PM

Yeah, I agree Fabi, you wouldn’t like it, but it would sure be fun to read your review. I’m thinking Butterfly Garden on steroids! The h was a piece of work.

Thanks Tessa! I was wondering how it would stand up to Full Tilt and it does not disappoint. And I’m not just saying that as her obsessive biased stalker :) It really is awesome.

Fabi September 29, 2016 at 5:25 PM

Thanks for the feedback Tessa and R. I wouldn’t be able to get through a book where I didn’t like the h. Not without Ela anyways. *snicker*

“her obsessive biased stalker ” hahahaha Authors are much more fun to crush on than movie stars IMHO I’m about to listen in on a chat with Santino Hassell. I’ve been counting down the minutes all day.

Jean September 29, 2016 at 5:55 PM

I think I have the whole Carnage series downloaded….. is it really that bad? I have Butterfly Garden too but haven’t read it yet either.

Retrieval……. feels like this book has Amy’s name all over it! It’s gonna hurt bad I think.

R. Renee September 29, 2016 at 6:00 PM

Jean it really sucked me in. And some people LOVE it. I’m pretty sure Maryse did which is why I read it ***thanks a lot, BTW ;) ***

But, the h is really hard to like. And IMO, that can’t be overlooked. At some point I think the book jumps the shark so to speak and I wish I would have listened to my gut and stopped there, but I was invested so I continued. It’s an emotional ride, and you might enjoy reading it just to find out what everybody is so upset about!

Jan September 29, 2016 at 7:29 PM

The Haunted Vagina???? What the actual hey? Is that for real?? *shakes head sadly, acknowledging the craziness of the world*

Yeah ladies, I love a HEA too, and can’t cope with too much angst. That’s why I’ve avoided quite a few of the books recs on here. But still, one of my fav reads in the last year was Freya North’s The Turning Point. Wonderful love story about an unlikely older couple, but also a total sobfest. I was wrecked after this book, but so moved by it and totally loved it. Most beautiful ending of a book ever…… Please, somebody else read this book so I can share with you!!!

“In the Sixth Precinct, the inexorable current of the river that flowed through Death slowed almost to a stop.”
Goldenhand by Garth Nix. Brand new shiny sequel to my beloved Sabriel, Lirael series, fabulous YA fantasies. (Lirael is on my list of fav books ever…..)

Cheryl September 29, 2016 at 7:42 PM

First, Leslie I agree you have to read Rush and I promise it won’t devastate you. Also, read the novella Endless Possibilities.

Jean, thanks I kinda figured that character had to be from another book. Haven’t read that series, but do have it on my tbr.

R. which book are you talking about to Jean? Retrieval?

R. Renee September 29, 2016 at 7:44 PM

The one that starts with a “C” and rhymes with “arnage.” Sorry, Ela will lynch me if I speak it aloud (or in writing)!

Tessa September 29, 2016 at 7:44 PM

You know you’ve read an author a lot when you are reading her book and get to a specific spot, stuff starts happening, and , even though there is no actual reason, your stomach starts knotting up like something horrible is gonna happen.

Yeah, I’m at that spot in the book.

R. Renee September 29, 2016 at 7:45 PM

LOL Tessa that’s Taylor Jenkins Reid for me. I make it halfway though the title and BAM!!

Cheryl September 29, 2016 at 7:45 PM

I also have to have a HEA. Doesn’t really matter how I get there, a dark read, comedy, suspense, gut-wrenching, just give me the happy ending!! :>

“Okay, Luke,” Clare breathed. Transfer by Aly Martinez.

Cheryl September 29, 2016 at 7:50 PM

R. had me a little worried that you were talking about the Retrieval series. I guess because I thought it started off with my gut all twisted in knots and then it kinda flattened out. It’s still good, but lost some of it’s impact about half-way thru.

Cheryl September 29, 2016 at 7:53 PM

Neighbors is book one in a series-anyone know how many books it is going to be and is it the same story throughout or interconnected standalones??

Amy September 29, 2016 at 8:13 PM

Alright, I just posted my rant on GR but I’m saying it here as well…

Pretty Stolen Dolls is the first of two books and ends on a CH and I am P!SSED!!!!

I am NOT reading the second one because I am so sick of authors doing this. What is the big freaking deal in letting us know ahead of time that it will not be wrapped up in one book? Now all they have done is made me not want to buy the second one…and if I was a REAL b!tch I would go and get my money back right now even though I’ve read it. GAH! I don’t read so I can feel this sort of frustration and irritation dammit!!!

*jumps off soapbox and kicks it across the floor*

Amy September 29, 2016 at 8:13 PM

In case you didn’t guess already…

I’m taking back my rec!!!

Cheryl September 29, 2016 at 8:27 PM

Amy, I totally agree. Nothing pisses me off more than to get to the end of a book and realize there will be a book 2 or even 3. Should be a no brainer to have that in the blurb. I like to think I am seeing more mention of this is a standalone or book 1 or ends in a cliffhanger in blurbs now because of our rants here on Maryse’s blog!! :)

Tessa September 29, 2016 at 8:45 PM

Saying it now. This is book one of more.

I’m not done, but this is definitely ending on a CH. OMG, did the ball drop. Like, I knew a portion, figured it out, but OMG, the delivery and the dull details. CRAP! GUT TOMMY WRENCH WORTHY!

Tessa September 29, 2016 at 8:51 PM

Erm, not dull, full. Thank you, autocorrect.

R. Renee September 29, 2016 at 8:52 PM

Hahahah Tessa !I love books with dull details!

bev September 29, 2016 at 8:57 PM

*sits down on the soap box*
*clears throat*
Amy, you kno….ah forget it.

*stands up and walks away*

Fabi September 29, 2016 at 9:16 PM

*pulls soapbox near*
*unpacks bag of glasses, mixer and vodka*
*mixes a chocolate martini*
*drinks martini and hands Amy bottle of Vodka*

Did you see my rant about King on GR way back when? Not only do I refuse to read the rest of the series, I refuse to read anything else by that author.

So…I hear you sister, I hear you!

R. Renee September 29, 2016 at 9:21 PM

Ooooh is that the one with the editing? I wonder if it’s been fixed? I’d have to pass if not. That drives me insane.

I’ll take a martini, please.

Fabi September 29, 2016 at 9:23 PM

Yup, that’s the one. It hit all my buttons. Editing, non-hea, cliffhanger, etc.

ummmm, not sure I can get that bottle back from Amy in the mood she’s in ;-)

Jan September 29, 2016 at 9:26 PM

Yeah an unexpected ch is pretty low. It’s OK if we know what we’re getting into and choose to do so, but it’s unfair for authors to pull what seems like a dirty trick to make you buy more books. That *may* not be the intention, but it certainly makes readers out there pretty angry!

Here, Amy, Fabi, Renee….. have a marine on the house.

Jan September 29, 2016 at 9:27 PM

Oh super LOL. the joys of autocorrect. that was supposed to be a MARTINI on the house. Not sure what a marine on the house is like. (Has potential, tho :)

R. Renee September 29, 2016 at 9:28 PM

Forget the martini! I’ll take one marine, please.

Jan September 29, 2016 at 9:29 PM


Fabi September 29, 2016 at 9:41 PM

Amy already has her Marine. :-)

R. Renee September 29, 2016 at 9:42 PM

Super. She can keep the vodka and I’ll take two marines.

Fabi September 29, 2016 at 9:47 PM

Cool! Then you can write an MFM.

R. Renee September 29, 2016 at 9:48 PM

I’m leaving that one to you!

Grey September 29, 2016 at 9:49 PM

*snort* oh my, I see Thursday night as made the girls *thirsty*…

Grey September 29, 2016 at 9:49 PM

has…not as, wtf…

Fabi September 29, 2016 at 9:50 PM

I think you’d better leave Amy’s Marine to her since she has legal papers claiming him. *snicker*

Tessa September 29, 2016 at 9:51 PM

*hugs Amy* Sorry. I went through wtf-ness. It should have given some warning about a series. I adore books with CH, but it should give some heads up that it’s not a full story.

I’ll take a marine… Pretty lips please.

Fabi September 29, 2016 at 9:52 PM

*waves to Grey* Hiii

*whispers to R* Grey smelled our drinks from across the country. :-0

Tessa September 29, 2016 at 10:00 PM

BTW, that end. That ending. It was perfect. It’s definitely not done. lol AND! I want to stomp on both of the men’s favorite part. Big time. UGH. Remember when I said my FLT, oh, it’s good. I’m confused. Not much angst. Love triangle-ish. THen it started to be more angst, but that end. STUPID PEOPLE! Now, to wait for number two.

Tessa September 29, 2016 at 10:07 PM

Oh and if you can handle CH, huge recommendation to read Neighbors, even if it does feature people who are worthy of being strangled.

Amy September 29, 2016 at 10:08 PM

*calls out to a retreating bev* Too soon, my friend!!! :P

Amy September 29, 2016 at 10:20 PM

*leans head on Fabi’s shoulder*

You’re the bestest. Bestest ever.

*looks at R and wraps arms around vodka bottle*

MY vodka!!! Let me have a few more gulps and I’ll share it though.

Whoa! Wait a minute…did I adopt a Marine and not know it?? Ooooh, hubby is gonna be maaaaaad. *giggle*

Amy September 29, 2016 at 10:24 PM

Oh lord, Jan and Grey’s autocorrects are getting drunk along with us!!

Thanks Tessa. *snuggles into Tessa* I love how y’all just KNOW and GET IT.

Fabi September 29, 2016 at 10:38 PM

Wait, Mr. Amy is Army right?

Amy September 29, 2016 at 10:41 PM

Yep, he is! But they’re called soldiers. ;) And they don’t play well with Marines. *eyeroll*

Amy September 29, 2016 at 10:42 PM

By the way, I think it’s the cutest thing when you call him Mr. Amy. LOL!!!

Fabi September 29, 2016 at 10:43 PM

*throws hands up*. One martini, ONE is all I had. Sheesh – no more drinking for me.

My apologies Amy. NO Marines for you!!!

Jan September 29, 2016 at 11:09 PM


Amy September 29, 2016 at 11:34 PM

Aw Fabi, here…have some hot tea before bed.

*pours vodka into Fabi’s tea*


Amy September 29, 2016 at 11:43 PM

Hey guys, I found us some deals!

White Trash Beautiful by Teresa Mummert, Beautiful Boss by Christina Lauren, Who I Am With You by Melody Anne, and All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven are all 1.99.

Tabula Rasa by Kitty Thomas is .99, and Infinity by Shanora Williams is FREE.

Cheryl September 30, 2016 at 6:20 AM

Ahem…Amy, I know I’m short and probably should have stood on the soapbox while I agreed with you about CH and book 2″s, but hey just give me the vodka!!

*thought I sent this last night, probably don’t want to start my day with vodka…but I’ll hold onto it for later* ;)

I didn’t do a FLT yesterday. I’m reading two books very very slowly, like a couple pages a day. Work and a cold, what can you do? Lol. One is The Goal which many of you read, will be or are reading, so I will go with the second.

Agreed with Amy. It’s still pure Tarryn Fisher (she goes there when it comes to her kind of love stories) but it’s easier on you. ;)

Amy, mine stopped sending email notification too. Then I’d get them a day or more later. They’d come in batches or one and two at a time out of order. You think the conversation on her can be odd and random try reading them that way.
Like if I subscribed to this one in a day I’d probably get an email with R randomly saying she wants two marines. Then few hours later Fabi would be getting drunk on a box.

I love crazy endings, Tessa. Maybe THIS one will be my next…

Maryse September 30, 2016 at 10:47 AM

Er… oh.

Just saw Amy’s reaction and THAT was my “tonight” read.


Maryse September 30, 2016 at 10:49 AM

Carnage and I didn’t get along so well either…

Maryse September 30, 2016 at 10:58 AM

Okay… I just moved Hausfraus up in my Kindle app to be one of the first ones so I don’t forget. I should go in, shouldn’t I?

R. Renee September 30, 2016 at 11:01 AM

I would have sworn you liked the “C” book Maryse! Dangit! I read ot for nothing lol!!

Yes read Hausfrau!

Amy September 30, 2016 at 12:55 PM

Cheryl, R says we’re having bloody mary’s so…we’re having bloody mary’s!!!! :D

Okay, I know I shouldn’t use apostrophes there but without the apostrophe “marys” looked too much like “Maryse” and…yeah, I wasn’t gonna do that. *snicker*

Amy September 30, 2016 at 1:00 PM

Maryse…don’t write off PSD just because of my rant. It WAS pretty good (not a 5 star for me but still worth reading) but I was just so irritated that it wasn’t made clear how it is the first of two books until the end of the actual book. And this sort of story…well, I just can’t see it being drawn out over two books. *shrug* But that’s just ME.

Hausfrau…”I should go in, shouldn’t I?” <—— YES!!!! A HUNDRED TIMES YESSSSSSSS!!!!! :D But I will have a crow martini waiting for me to down in case it doesn't work for you. *snort*

Tessa September 30, 2016 at 9:20 PM

Alright, it’s late at the end of the month. Best book of Sept, go!

These are my contenders:
Magic Binds (Kate Daniels, #9) by Ilona Andrews
Neighbors (A Twin Estates Novel Book 1) by Stylo Fantome
Empire of Storms (Throne of Glass, #5) by Sarah J Maas
Arcana Rising (The Arcana Chronicles, #4) by Kresley Cole

Fabi September 30, 2016 at 10:27 PM

uh uh uh, no cheating. You have to pick ONE. Unless it’s a deadheat tie, it’s gotta be one.

But, ok, cause you did say “contenders”
