BARGAINS & READER RECOMMENDATIONS (NOTE: bargain priced when I added them, but prices can change on Amazon, so make sure to check before you finalize your order)
- Balance (Off Balance Book 1) by Lucia Franco <— Robyn is so thankful for this recommendation!!!!
Robyn: Good Lord, I need to thank whoever recommended Balance by Lucia Franco! This book is most definately forbidden. I wasn’t sure I was going to like it because of the drastic age difference, but something just hooked me in. I couldn’t stop reading this book. Now I’m on to book 2, Execution (Off Balance Book 2). These books are very well written and if you like gymnastics, it’s another plus.
Nay: Robyn–I loved Balance! I’ve been watching for Execution (Off Balance Book 2) to come out for over a year, and I started it the day it came out, but then I decided to read Sleeping with Monsters first. I’ll be getting back to it tonight and I can’t wait!!
- Our Unscripted Story by L.A. Fiore <— SUPER-ANGSTY!! Linda loved it!
Linda: Last night finished reading Our Unscripted Story by L.A. Fiore. Highly recommend!!! Loved it extremely hard!!! Went through so many emotions. Has anyone else read it?
Cheryl: Just finished Our Unscripted Story. I forget who said the blurb sounds great and it’s only .99 cents, but you were so right! I loved it. The story followed the MC’s who met as teens. There was such angst wondering if they would end up together and along with that I also had such foreboding that something really bad was going to happen. I think it was the cover that started that thought. I was really hoping it wasn’t going to be one of “those” books. You know the one’s Amy and Maryse love. I’m back and forth between 4.5-5 stars. Couple things were a bit of a stretch for me.
