in Latest Book Releases

<— Now THIS is what I call an EARLYBIRD RELEASE DAY!!!! Plenty of great-looking books to start the week off before tomorrow’s BIG release day.

And OH BOY am I excited about tomorrow’s release day. I’ve already had quite a few blurb-jolts (you can see a few highlights of whats’ going live, below) and I haven’t even started compiling that list yet!! YAY US! But in the meantime…

Lookit! These just went live early :D !

  1. Most Likely To Score by Lauren Blakely <— LAUREN BLAKELY FORBIDDEN ROMANCE ALERT!! The publicist and the football star already had wayyyyyyy too much fun. ;) “...I don’t date players. And I definitely don’t sleep with players. And I absolutely don’t fall for a certain player when I get to know him and learn he’s more than just sexy — he’s clever, funny and has a heart as big as his . .. well, you get my drift. But my job is at stake, and I can’t afford to lose that as well as my heart. The problem is, I think I’ve already lost that game...”
  2. Something So Irresistible (Something So Series Book 3) by Natasha Madison <— BROKEN HOCKEY STAR ALERT!!! “...Never fall in love with a sports star. That’s what my stepfather always said. He told me athletes are complicated and moody—that the higher their paycheck, the lower their morals. As public relations for the New York Stingers I know exactly what he means, but I can’t seem to say no to a friendship with one beautiful, damaged man. What started out as hate turned into something else…
  3. Under the Lights: A thrilling, second-chance romance duet. (Bright Lights Book 1) by Tia Louise <— SHE’S A FAMOUS BURLESQUE STAR & HE’S IN LOVE WITH HER… but “…her fame had a dark side, A sinister shadow lurking under the lights. I would do anything to save her… He would do anything to see me dead…”
  4. Her Rodeo Masters (Pleasure Island Book 9) by Anya Summers <— SHE’S ACCIDENTALLY AUCTIONED OFF… “...She’s an investigative reporter for the Pasadena Tribune, and is hoping to write the story of the century by infiltrating Pleasure Island claiming to be a submissive. Except, when she gets there, she inadvertently finds herself auctioned off for charity and now has two hunky cowboys who want to own her body and soul.
  5. Inseparable by Siobhan Davis <— BEST FRIENDS SINCE CHILDHOOD but a mess in college……When Devin publicly shamed me, Ayden took my side, and our awesome-threesome bond was severed. The split was devastating. The heartbreak inevitable. Ayden and I moved on with our lives, but the pain never lessened, and Devin was never far from our thoughts. Until it all came to a head in college, and one eventful night changed everything. Now, I’ve lost the two people who matter more to me than life itself. Nothing will ever be the same again…”
  6. Executive Ink: A Montgomery Ink Romance by Carrie Ann Ryan <— SHE’S AN EXECUTIVE & HE’S A BAD BOY… “Ashylnn didn’t want him…she craved him. That was her first mistake, but not her last. She’s the boss of her life and decisions. She doesn’t have time for a bearded, inked man. But he may just make her yearn for it…”
  7. Hot SEALs: SEAL the Deal by Cat Johnson
  8. Chance Collision (Crossing Forces Book 2) by C.A. Szarek
  9. Cocksure by K.I. Lynn <— HE DOESN’T RECOGNIZE HER… “I stole a night with my fantasy. Lied to him. After ten years of not seeing each other, Niko doesn’t even recognize me. So I take what I want from him, what I need from him. Without worry. Without consequence. What I didn’t count on was the lingering need for him.  What I chose to forget is that he is my brother’s best friend…”
  10. Relay (Changing Lanes Book 1) by Layla Reyne <— M/M ROMANCE ALERT!! OLYMPIC SWIMMERS!…Dane has been a pawn in his celebrity parents’ empire from crib to pool, flashing his camera-ready smile on demand and staying deeply in the closet. Only once did he drop the act—the summer he fell in love with Alex. Ten years later, Dane longs to cut his parents’ strings, drop his too-bright smile, and beg Alex for another chance…
  11. Deep (The Deep Duet Book 1) by M. Malone &‎ Nana Malone <— HE’S THE MONSTER THAT HAS TO PROTECT HER... “I am the ghost that haunts your dreams. I am a liar, a protector … a killer… I am death. You think you know my story, but you have no idea. My death was just the beginning. In the years since I escaped the shadow organization that owned me, my vow to protect my family is the only thing keeping me alive. Until I meet her. Too bad I need the monster to protect her from the demons of her past...”

Happy Monday!

I swear the more I vow NOT to add to TBR the better the new shinies start sounding.


Leslie M January 8, 2018 at 7:35 AM

Is it just me or is seeing “2018″ in print freaking everyone else out?

Where did the time go? I think it all just hit me right now. :(

Maryse January 8, 2018 at 8:30 AM

I keep putting 2017 still… LOL!!!

Good morning my friend!!!!

Leslie M January 8, 2018 at 8:38 AM

So what is everyone reading? I had two books going at once (Court of Thorns & Roses, Yes Mr Van Der Wells) but paused them to read Waiting for the Sun. Now I am having hard time getting back to other books. :(

Nay January 8, 2018 at 9:33 AM

Good morning! Happy Monday!

Leslie–When I started having trouble sticking with COTAR (I think that when I know ahead of time that people love the second book more than the first, it puts some kind of mental block in my head and immediately makes the first one more difficult for me to read), I listened to the rest on audio book and it made a HUGE difference. I was able to speed it up and then finished it in no time. I’m not a member of Audible right now, so I don’t think I can give a copy, but Kooloo said that she could. Just an idea!

Nay January 8, 2018 at 9:41 AM

I’m going to read Waiting for the Sun again, and then on Wednesday, I’m reading Uncharted. I’m really looking forward to that book!

Maryse–in case you didn’t see it on the Friday thread, I sent you my favorites of 2017 list last night.

This week, I’m going to go through all the 2017 fave lists and make sure I have every book I need to read either on my tbr shelf and/or my ‘next’ shelf. I’ve seen so many that I haven’t read yet!

Grey January 8, 2018 at 9:48 AM

Back to work. Ugh. 4 letter word that should be banned.

I’m finishing acotar and then deciding which way I’m going…if I am going to read my face which was Acomaf or read something off my tbr. *tosses glitter* *shakes magic 8 ball*

Tessa January 8, 2018 at 10:16 AM

Okay, I think I finished my “why didn’t I read this book sooner” book of the year. Bad Romeo. OMG! It was so good, and now I have to get Broken Juliet. That was the best 99 cents spent. lol (Thank goodness for that 5 dollar coupon from Google.)

Now, still in a CR mood, Over Us, Over You. Just started, but I adore the h already. Started a coffee shop in Seattle. Take a guess how well that went?

Tasha J January 8, 2018 at 11:45 AM

Today is my daughter’s 1st surgery, tubes and adenoids…I’m a little stressed!! In fact, she should be going in about now. I couldn’t go bc I’ve gotta feed this baby and that hospital doesn’t have a cafeteria for the public. And someone had to watch the toddler. They’ll probably be there a few more hours yet.
Anyway….these books are also coming out tomorrow and I’m so super excited for them. I spent all my gift card money already so I may go buy myself another just so it doesn’t look like I’m spending too much on books, lol! I put a ton on hold at the library, but it takes like 9 months for those to come in.

Maryse January 8, 2018 at 11:46 AM

YAY!!! I have it Nay!! I will be preparing it to post shortly. *hug* It is AWESOME my friend!

LisafromDFW January 8, 2018 at 11:51 AM

I’ve been reading books based on all the 2017 favorites lists. The latest is Waking Olivia. It is a “forbidden” (not very forbidden ) SLOW BURN CR. The MC fight the attraction. Catnip! I liked it!!! I’m on to the next book. Drowning Erin.

R. Renee January 8, 2018 at 1:53 PM

Sending you good vibes Tasha! <3

Tasha J January 8, 2018 at 2:45 PM

Thanks R! She’s in recovery now, another hour or so and she should be coming home. I swear, my husband is the worst at relaying anything. It’s like pulling teeth to get all the answers I want. He says, finally, he’s with her and she’s doing good. Then sends me a pic where she looks completely out of it and in pain. *rolls eyes* That doesn’t look good!

R. Renee January 8, 2018 at 2:46 PM

Ugh men! Mine is the same way!

Nay January 8, 2018 at 4:17 PM

Tasha–I tried to write you when I was sitting in the doctor’s office (yes, ANOTHER doctor’s appointment for me too!), but she came in and I had to put my phone away.

I was going to tell you not to worry and everything would be fine. My son had his first tubes surgery at 18 months. They rolled him away in a little red wagon while I cried my eyes out. And then he had two more surgeries over the years and did great with them all! The only advice I can give is don’t give her anything colored to eat until you’re she’s not nauseous.

We got my son home after his surgery when he was about 4, and he felt pretty good, so he was on a pallet in the living room watching movies. He told us he was starving and begged me for some SpaghettiOs. So being the gullible mom, I asked him if his tummy felt ok and he said yes. More begging, so I gave in. Then about 30 minutes later, he got sick all over my new berber carpet. I never got the stain out, even with bleach!

Nay January 8, 2018 at 4:18 PM

**until you’re SURE she’s not nauseous.


Cheryl January 8, 2018 at 5:12 PM

Tasha, hope your daughter is home now and enjoying a popsicle- but not a red one! LOL!

I’m reading Over Us, Over You and I’m having a hard time staying with it. I like the premise, but I’m just not enjoying the writing. It’s choppy and well, not great.

Tessa January 8, 2018 at 5:18 PM

Hope your daughter is doing well. *hugs* Or a blue popsicle. Those are a pain to clean as well.

OMG, Meddle of Wizard comes out tomorrow. Thank you for reminding me Tasha! You all HAVE to read it. It’s so good, though the first few chapters is slow for world-building, it was the fastest world building I’ve read that was actually complete enough to tell a story. It was really quick after that, and not too many characters to lose track of what’s going on. Gah, I want the next book!

MichelleS January 8, 2018 at 5:53 PM

Does Meddle of Wizards have any romantic undertones? I couldn’t tell from the blurb.

Tessa January 8, 2018 at 5:59 PM

Yes, though it’s really just the beginning of the romance, so it’s gonna be a slower burn.

Tasha J January 8, 2018 at 7:25 PM

Thank you all! She came home tired as can be and went to her room and crashed. She just got up not too long ago and had some applesauce and leftover pesto chicken pasta (from Amy’s recipe ;) ). Chatty as ever, just a scratchy throat for now. I’m hoping it stays this way.
-Meddle of Wizards is now my first official preorder or 2018! P

Tasha J January 8, 2018 at 7:28 PM

Despite the warning, I had to give her a red Gatorade to sip through the night. I told her if she must puke, please at least make it in her trash can. That’s the only flavor we had and she won’t drink water as well…I hope she holds it all down!

Cheryl January 8, 2018 at 8:55 PM

Tasha, I mainly mentioned not red popsicles or drinks because if your daughter vomits after drinking red liquids, the vomit will be red. You might want to avoid red foods and fluids so you can be sure that her vomit doesn’t contain blood.

bev January 8, 2018 at 9:00 PM

So kept seeing buzz about Oprah’s speech at the Golden Globes that I did not watch. But I love a good speech so had to go find and watch it.
Damn she gives a good speech. It is great, made me tear up a little . Life time achievement award but used it to focus on the women making change right now. Love when the women stand up.

Leslie M January 8, 2018 at 10:04 PM

I felt same way Bev. Oprah was pretty awesome.

Maryse January 10, 2018 at 10:30 AM

I’m so glad it went well Tasha. It must have been so nerve-racking.

Maryse January 10, 2018 at 10:31 AM

YAY Thank you for the feedback on it, Lisa!!! :D

I’ve now got three more 2017 lists on the way, and I think we’ll be done (including mine).
