Happy Monday!! Not a ton of earlybirds today but tomorrow’s big new release day promise to be AH-MAZING!!!!! I included some highlights of those below too. Feast your eyes. ;)

I have a feeling some more might sneak in throughout the day, so I’ll add them as they pop up (or let me know if you see one I missed).


  • Torn (Torn Series, Book 1) by Melody Anne <— LIVE!!! MARITAL STRIFE ALERT!!! “...that’s all we did. We just … slept. No big deal you say? Wrong. It was a very big deal. It was the night I realized we had a real problem. I have a choice to make, but I’m so torn. Do I stay where I’m at or do I go with Kaden, with the man who’s showing me I still have a lot to live for...”
  • Rascal (Rascals Book 1) by Katie McCoy <— LIVE!! HE’S HER HOT LANDLORD ALERT!!! “...He’s also opening a bar with his buddies right below my apartment. Goodbye, peace and quiet, hello sleepless nights fantasizing about my hot new landlord… But when my stuffy workplace makes it clear I need a plus-one for our events, I have the perfect way to even the score. Emerson is A+ arm-candy… as long as I can resist taking a bite…”
  • King’s Wrath (Sydney Storm MC Book 5) by Nina Levine <— LIVE!!! NINA LEVINE’S LATEST BIKER ALERT! “Our love wasn’t like everyone else’s. There wasn’t a first date or flowers and gifts. We didn’t have a song or cute nicknames for each other. There were no calls during the day to check in with me, no coming home to cook me dinner, and no foot massages at the end of a long day. That wasn’t how he loved. But love me he did. Madly, deeply, passionately, completely. King loved with everything he had. He just loved a little differently to most….”
  • Trying It (Metropolis Book 4) by Riley Hart & Devon McCormack <— LIVE!! M/M ROMANCE ALERT!! ”…Evan Lockhart has a hard time getting close to people. But the one guy he can always count on is his laid-back, adorable, beanie-wearing bestie, Frankie. Frankie is fiercely loyal and protective-exactly what Evan needs in his life right now. Evan tells him everything, but when he finds himself curious to explore something a little unusual-maybe a little strange-he worries about what will happen if Frankie finds out. But who better to explore your closet kink with than your best friend?
  • Lyric (Rebel Book 1) by Molly McAdams <— IT’S LIVE!! THE LATEST BY ANGST-QUEEN, MOLLY MCADAMS is LIVE!! MAFIA PRINCESS? “…For as long as I can remember, he’s vowed that one day he would claim my wild, rebel heart. God knows I wanted him to try. I wanted the life he promised me in his lyrics. But his assurances couldn’t change the past, and the infamous mafia blood in my veins guarantees my heart can’t be claimed. Somewhere along the way, I slipped. I let myself believe we could have it all...”
  • Medley (Changing Lanes Book 2) by Layla Reyne <— M/M ROMANCE ALERT!!
  • Cheeky King (Royals Undercover Book 2) by Nana Malone
  • Bought (Ghost Riders MC Book 1) by Brook Wilder <— LIVE!! HE BOUGHT HER. ”...I made a business on selling women, not falling for them. But when I saw her on the auction block. So fragile, so pure, so inexperienced. Something in me snapped. I destroyed her world when I bought her, but now I’m her road to salvation. The only problem is: Some other bastard thinks that Cassie belongs to him...”
  • Fools Rush In (Cartwright Brothers Book 2) by Lilliana Anderson <— LIVE!! OOOOOOH THE CONSEQUENCES!!! ”…I was lonely.  But I was OK. Then I met Sam. Our eyes locked and BANG my heart started beating. As my blood warmed and pumped around my body, everything changed. Before that moment, I had been as dead inside as the stiffs I applied make-up to in the mortuary. Now I was alive, experiencing things for the first time, enamoured with a man I knew to be a criminal. Instead of running and remaining the good Catholic girl I was, I married him. Now I have to live with the consequences of that decision...”
  • Platinum (Dangerous Games Book 4) by Adele Huxley <— LIVE!!! WINTER OLYMPICS ALERT! “…Hunter Hannaford didn’t expect another chance with Hadley. Through sheer luck she’s back in his life and he’s not gonna mess it up. No sooner do they finally reconnect, he’s faced with the hardest decision of his life. Now he must choose between the woman he’s always loved, what he knows is right, and his childhood dreams…”



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 all of 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!

PREORDERS (A few of next week’s!!! :D )

Maryse April 30, 2018 at 8:11 AM

You guys I need SO much coffee. I can’t shake this sleepy-Monday morning fog. Can I blame it on the pretty pink full moon?

P.S. HAPPY BIRTHDAY NAY!!!!!!! I feel so blessed to have you with us and we love you like crazy!!

MichelleS April 30, 2018 at 8:13 AM

Happy Birthday Nay! Big hug!!

bev April 30, 2018 at 8:37 AM

I’m going on only a few hours sleep. I plan to get a coffee the size of my head.

bev April 30, 2018 at 8:53 AM

A song to get me through

D.G. April 30, 2018 at 8:53 AM

Happy Monday dears! Happy birthday Nay! Happy belated birthday Bev! *hands out coffee and muffins*.

bev April 30, 2018 at 9:07 AM

One more.

I’m in a music frame of mind.

I just want to drink coffee and listen to music.

Or radio on Windows down…. who’s driving?

Ela April 30, 2018 at 9:10 AM


Ela April 30, 2018 at 9:10 AM
Nay April 30, 2018 at 9:16 AM

It’s so great to start my Monday with all of your wonderful birthday wishes and heart-shaped confetti! Thank so much, everyone–I love you all bunches!!

Hubs and I went to the Predators game last night and we had an absolute BLAST!!! It was the 2nd game of the 2nd round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, and we won in double overtime to tie up the series. (We also went to the first game on Friday night, which we lost, but we still had so much fun!)

Now I’m ready to relax and read today.

bev April 30, 2018 at 9:17 AM

Maryse, do you ever listen to Nick Drake’s Pink Moon?
Love it.

Tessa April 30, 2018 at 9:23 AM

Happy birthday, Nay! *spins and tosses up coffee and creamer* Have a fun day today. :)

Fools rush in looks fun. However, tomorrow Frost and Starlight. YEAH! I’m only going to read novellas today so I am ready when that book hits.

Tasha J April 30, 2018 at 9:54 AM

Happy birthday Nay!! Eat loads of cake for me, I mean YOU!! :P

Maryse April 30, 2018 at 10:42 AM

I have not bev… is it a song or a book?

Amy April 30, 2018 at 11:10 AM


Monday sleepiness must be contagious ’cause I need a triple venti caramel macchiato…like NOW.

Or maybe just an IV line with espresso…

Nay April 30, 2018 at 11:43 AM

If anyone wants to BR Atheists Who Kneel and Pray with us next week, I just set up a thread on GR. We just have to agree on the start date.

Amy April 30, 2018 at 11:55 AM


Atheists was one of my favorites last year! :D

Robyn April 30, 2018 at 1:16 PM


Robyn April 30, 2018 at 1:18 PM

My whole message didn’t download, so here’s the rest. Grrrr

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. These books are very well written and if you like gymnastics, it’s another plus.

bev April 30, 2018 at 3:32 PM

A song by Nick Drake.

Jean April 30, 2018 at 3:57 PM

Happy birthday Renee!!

Jean April 30, 2018 at 3:59 PM

I’m reading Dark Matter!!! So. So good!!! An oldie but Kooloo picked it for me this month. I dove right in yesterday and am almost done!!!


MichelleS April 30, 2018 at 5:19 PM

Age difference and gymnastics? Shudder. I think it’s too soon for me. That nutso doc will surely come to mind!

Amy April 30, 2018 at 5:26 PM

You know you’re having a rough day when you run to the store to buy “just a few things” (which turns into $170) and then lock your keys in the trunk.


Nay April 30, 2018 at 5:31 PM

Thanks again for the birthday wishes!

Robyn–I loved Balance! I’ve been watching for Execution 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!!

Maryse April 30, 2018 at 5:42 PM

Jean I LOVED Dark Matter!!!! All confusing and exciting!!

bev April 30, 2018 at 6:39 PM

I hope you bought chocolate or ice cream.

Nay April 30, 2018 at 6:50 PM

Oooh, Amy! That SUCKS!! I feel for you!

Nay April 30, 2018 at 7:04 PM

Michelle–when I started reading Execution, that crossed my mind (there’s a note about it at the front of the book), but since I read the first one and knew of the series way before that awful gymnastics catastrophe, I’m easily able to separate the two. Especially since the heroine is doing everything because of her own decisions and feelings.To me, it’s more akin to a student/teacher romance, but I can definitely see where it could be ‘too soon’ for some people to give them a try.

Jan April 30, 2018 at 7:06 PM

Dang, Amy. *passes Amy a chocolate martini* It’s not too early, right?

Nay, I happy birthdayed you on the other thread. Oh well. *throws more glitter* Have a great day.

HR lovers might like to know that a new Mary Balogh book, Someone To Care, is out today. (or tomorrow for you guys). It’s #4 in the Westcott series, but I reckon can be read as a standalone. Older H and h (which I like). Widow and widower end up running away together. ooh. That’s a different trope. Looks pretty good.

Linda April 30, 2018 at 7:38 PM

Happy birthday Nay!!!

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?

Amy April 30, 2018 at 7:59 PM

Thank goodness there was nothing that would be at risk of melting. Except for my Halo ice cream, but that takes forever to soften so it was pretty safe. ;)

Lookie!! I’m not feelin’ the three “leathery” finishes, but the others are great! Cremes and shimmers and glitter…yes please!

Come on, who didn’t sing Grease songs into their hairbrush as a little girl and pretend they were in the movie??

Amy April 30, 2018 at 8:00 PM

Linda, I have that one lined up as one of my next 2018-purchases read. :D

Linda April 30, 2018 at 8:16 PM

Happy birthday Nay!!
Highly recommend Our Unscripted Story by L.A. Fiore!! Loved it extremely hard!! Emotions ran amuck!!!

Linda April 30, 2018 at 8:20 PM

I can’t really explain what I just did!! I’m really tired and want to get my point across I guess!!! Lol.

Amy April 30, 2018 at 8:34 PM

You RAVED Linda…totally acceptable behavior around here. ;)

Nay April 30, 2018 at 9:33 PM

Thanks, Linda and Jan!

I bought Our Unscripted Story and plan to read it very soon. I hope it’s good and angsty!!

Kooloo April 30, 2018 at 11:30 PM

*******Happy B-Day My Beautiful Friend*********
