in Latest Book Releases


What kind of crazy-awesome Monday is this? :D !!!! What a way to kick off the week. PLUS!! One of yesterday’s new releases, Secret Sins: (A Standalone) (that one there to the right) is getting rave reviews (and making some of our fellow readers super-nervous)…

Lise: Reading Secret Sins and it is so good!

Cheryl: I started reading Secret Sins last night. Have to admit I’m nervous at how this will end. The h’s name was familiar to me and realized that she was in the submission series, which almost made me not want to read this book. She’s not a “bad” character, but I just don’t see how this ends well and the author also says in the blurb there is a shocking twist at the end. Kinda have an idea what that is.

Maryse: Cheryl, that just titillates me even more. And Lise loving it? She and I love the crazy-intense, unconventional stuff. Now I’m extra excited!! :D

R. Renee: I just added Secret Sins to my TBR. The reviews are sucking me in!

Amy September 19, 2016 at 10:05 AM

I’m starting Secret Sins!! Cheryl said the h is from the Submission series, and I don’t remember much from the books but they must have been good if I gave most of them 4 stars. ;)

You know how we’ve been talking about covers, including on yesterday’s post? Twelve Truths and a Lie and Nothing More are PERFECT examples of what catches my eye! :D

Maryse September 19, 2016 at 12:16 PM

Agreed Amy!!!! I LOVE both of those covers!

Maryse September 19, 2016 at 12:17 PM

Thank you Pia!!! I’m adding it! :D

Ela September 19, 2016 at 12:59 PM

Well Geez! Another crazy week?

Amy September 19, 2016 at 1:06 PM

Yep Ela, a crazy GOOD week!! :D

Maryse, right?? I love covers that make me want to cradle them and stare lovingly at them. ‘Cause that’s what book lovers do.

Maryse September 19, 2016 at 1:22 PM

I like to smell them. :)

Amy September 19, 2016 at 1:29 PM

You need that avatar (is it Lisa’s?) that says “I sniff books” LOL!!

Ela September 19, 2016 at 2:16 PM

Or you could sniff it through your phone!

Maryse September 19, 2016 at 2:38 PM

What what whaaaaaaat? SNIFF THROUGH MY PHONE??

What will they think of next?!!!

Maryse September 19, 2016 at 2:39 PM

Okay that’s just way cool!

Amy September 19, 2016 at 2:59 PM

They need to come up with a “book pages” scent that would be released every time we turn the page on our ebooks!!! :D

Maryse September 19, 2016 at 4:16 PM

oooooooh YESSSSSS!!!!

Maryse September 19, 2016 at 4:16 PM

A little dusty-smell… a little paper ‘n ink!

Grey September 19, 2016 at 5:05 PM

Where’s Cheryl? I want to commiserate with a fellow comrade here…this sucks! I want to read a whole bunch of these and have no time! Scowl…growl…grumble…

I’m still in my ARC…but there’s a couple here that will definitely be getting a clickety click. Playboy Pilot, Secret Sins,Twelve Truths and a Lie, and Black Sheep…

Marina September 19, 2016 at 10:05 PM

OMG Maryse had no idea there is a new CD Reiss book! So excited!!! I’ve been trying to catch up… finally read It Ends with Us then Swear On This Life now needing to read Before the Fall for book club in 2 days but dying to read your recs: Secret Sins, Playboy Pilot and Retrieval. And CD Reiss is drop everything! Need more time!!!

bev September 19, 2016 at 10:36 PM

Hey, Amy.
MichelleS told me of this book she thought you’d like. She fell in love with the main character when she read it.
Anyway we were chatting over coffee and she checked in here and chuckled.
I was all, what’s funny?
She said, Amy.
What did she say now, MichelleS?
bev, she said she wants a book cover she can cuddle and stare lovingly at.
She shook her head.
She said, she’s right it is what “book lovers do.”
We sipped our coffee.
Hey, bev.
Yes, MichelleS?
You know who I fell in love with and wish I could cuddle?
Rammel Hawking?
MichelleS paused to think on him.
I gave her time.
*5 minutes later*
bev, it’s someone I think Amy would love and cuddle too.
Oh, really?
Is….is it……? No…really, you think so too?
Yes, yes I really do.
Simon, we say together.
We sip our coffees.

R. Renee September 19, 2016 at 10:38 PM

oh lawd…

bev September 19, 2016 at 10:51 PM

Fabi mentioned I needed to be more persistent.

Hy, R.
*scoots closer*
I can’t remember. Have you been to the courtyard?

R. Renee September 19, 2016 at 10:52 PM

Our Fabi?

bev September 19, 2016 at 10:57 PM

I know no other.

R. Renee September 19, 2016 at 10:59 PM

She does have the magic touch. She got me to buy a M/M without even trying!

Amy September 19, 2016 at 11:29 PM


*wheezes and tries to catch breath*

I’m freaking DYING here bev!!!!!

*holds onto fainting couch for support while laughing hysterically*

I swear you kill me woman!!

Fabi September 19, 2016 at 11:50 PM

Bev is on fire tonight. Go bev!

Lisa September 20, 2016 at 4:17 AM

I do sniff books!!

And yes, Amy..those covers are exactly what we’re looking for.
Having said that I’m atm reading Cant Touch This by Pepper Winters (love her) which has possibly THE WORST cover of the year.

For the love of books….will you all just read Written in Red!!

DG September 20, 2016 at 4:44 AM

I am sincerely disappointed. It was not bad…just the h was not to my liking…she was very….strange. As in not revealing her age…and talking about it throughout the book kinda strange to me…Secret Sins could have stayed a secret to me…the shocker was not a shocker…figured it out midway through. Sorry ladies…not my cup of tea.

bev September 20, 2016 at 7:36 AM

Lisa, lol. Amy’s Simon is Simon from Simon vs the Homosapiens Agenda…..have you read it?

I did notice that R has not answered the question about THAT Simon. Simon Wolfgard.

Ela September 20, 2016 at 9:22 AM

I wanna ride Siomon Wolfgard…..yeeeeeeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaaaah

R. Renee September 20, 2016 at 9:41 AM

***googling Simon Wolfgard***

Amy September 20, 2016 at 11:39 AM

“I wanna ride Siomon Wolfgard” <——- *spits out coffee and sputters* It's too early in the morning to picture that…

I swear, I keep re-reading bev's little scene up there and cracking up. LOL!!

Maryse September 20, 2016 at 11:51 AM

LOL Marina! Let me know what you think of it! :D I love the whole twist thing that I won’t see coming.

bev September 20, 2016 at 2:39 PM

R. Did you just really ask that??? Seriously? ? Who let R. In here?? R. I …….I can’t even right now.

bev September 20, 2016 at 2:40 PM

Who. Is. Simon. Wolfgard.

I can’t even.

R. Renee September 20, 2016 at 2:42 PM

Technically, I didn’t ask. *shrugs*

Fabi September 20, 2016 at 2:43 PM

I don’t find that surprising at all. YA/NA PNR doesn’t seem to be R’s cup of tea. Why would she know Simon? We all read slightly different books even within the same romance genre.

Amy September 20, 2016 at 2:45 PM

Simon let R in here.

R. Renee September 20, 2016 at 2:46 PM

I kind of used to, but not so much anymore. Right now my preferred genre is “whatever the heck Jean tells me to read.”

Tessa September 20, 2016 at 3:51 PM

I’m now envisioning Ela on a werewolf’s back in a cowboy’s outfit. :D

And no. All must read Written in Red. Have ou noticed you get he other suggestions only after you’ve read Written in Red. Speaking of which, who thinks Maryse should continue and read Murder of Crows?

bev September 20, 2016 at 7:10 PM

R. You asked google.

bev September 20, 2016 at 7:13 PM

I don’t think of them as YA or NA.
Adult fantasy or maybe urban fantasy.

We probably fo read completely different books, I was more surprised because so many of us have read them. So thought she would of came across our chatter, that’s all.

Lisa September 20, 2016 at 7:31 PM

Im with you Bev……mention of WiR, and Simon is almost as common around here as chat about Sherlock…isn’t it *giggles*.
Or the unwritten law that Travis belongs to Maryse…ONLY Maryse. The rest of us can look..but no touching. Everybody knows that.

Maryse September 20, 2016 at 7:34 PM

*ahem* WRITTEN LAW!!!

And tee hee Lisa!!! Thank you for tactfully reminding everyone.

Fabi September 20, 2016 at 7:39 PM

Just like Jean and I share Logan and the rest of you can have what’s his name. lol

Amy September 20, 2016 at 7:57 PM

What’s that again? We can touch Travis?

*lovingly strokes Travis’ chest*

*cackles and pinches Logan’s cute butt while running out of the room*

Tessa September 20, 2016 at 10:12 PM

Yes, touch Travis. Leave my Mason alone woman!

Amy September 20, 2016 at 10:47 PM

*pfft* I’ve already felt up Mason so the novelty is gone. :P

Jean September 21, 2016 at 9:34 AM

Oh my bev, that scene was priceless!

Yes R, stick with me. I’ll lead you in the right direction.

Fabi……Logan!!!!!! I wouldn’t share him with anyone else but you!

R. Renee September 21, 2016 at 9:35 AM

Jean’s my spirit animal.

Jean September 21, 2016 at 9:47 AM

R, I’m just reading all the comments from yesterday’s blog. They are really beating you up! Lol! (Here’s a secret, I only read the first Others book too, just like Maryse……shhhhh)

R. Renee September 21, 2016 at 9:56 AM

LOL Jean…I may or may not have given bev a hard time on GR, so I may or may not deserve my beating. But, either way, I’ll never admit it. That Ela on the other hand…

bev September 21, 2016 at 3:08 PM

We were not beating her up. If it was it was with feather pillows. Lol.
Fine I will not rec books to R anymore. Pfft.

R. Renee September 21, 2016 at 3:09 PM

Puh-lease. I can take it! Rec away!
