He’s a criminal with burning green eyes, invading my life and my dreams. The police say he’s dangerously obsessed with me, but I’m the one who can’t stop thinking about him. Maybe it’s wrong to let him touch me. Maybe it’s wrong to touch him back. Maybe these twisted dates need to stop. Except he feels like the only real thing in my world of designer labels and mansions. So I drive us under threat, until it’s hard to remember I don’t want to be there. Until it’s too late to turn back.”
  14. Deliverance (Knights of Black Swan Book 12) by Victoria Danann <— LIVE AND CAN BE READ AS A STANDALONE!! HE WAS CURSED… “…Deliverance had been a slave to sex for so long he could barely remember life before.

*holds out mug and begs for coffee*

Happy sleepy Monday

Maryse January 29, 2018 at 8:31 AM

*pours yummy strong coffee*

*hug* to you, my friend!!!

MichelleS January 29, 2018 at 8:58 AM

Coffee already in hand! I’m reading My Torin…. it’s….. interesting.

Maryse January 29, 2018 at 9:34 AM

Ooooh… okay, I’lll be stalking your opinion of it. It has come highly recommended.

bev January 29, 2018 at 10:26 AM

Inspired by Kooloo …..lets have a good Monday.

Tessa January 29, 2018 at 1:27 PM

*sits and waits for MichelleS opinion* Sorry, but when you mention the H has autism, I’m skeptical.

bev January 29, 2018 at 3:55 PM

We are quiet on the blog today.

Jean January 29, 2018 at 4:23 PM

I LOVED MY TORIN! Don’t hesitate you guys!

Meanwhile, I read Ryan’s Bed over the weekend……. still processing. Didn’t realize it was YA…..h and H are 18 and in senior year of high school…. that threw me a little. I noticed the reviews are off the charts. Let me say this…… the last three words of the book had my jaw dropping (like on the floor)!!!!!!! It actually made the book for me. No peeking at the ending girls!

Hostage cover is beautiful up there and Combust is HOT!!!!

Amy January 29, 2018 at 5:12 PM

Hi ladies!!! Can we have a group hug? I needs hugs from my sweet buddies here. Pretty please??

So, THIS made my whole day and I’ve had to rewatch it at least five times. All I know is 1) I want to hang out and drink with this guy, and 2) I want to see this Jay guy he keeps talking to. O. M. G. His Boston accent is what kills me…

Amy January 29, 2018 at 5:17 PM

Holy moly Jean…that’s my next read. I have no idea what it’s about but just hearing you say that about not peeking at the last three words is enough to make me read it next. Kinda like the last sentence of Forever, Interrupted. *OOMPH*

I’m finally getting back to Unloved by Katy Regnery and I’m hooked now. It’s both POVs but it’s working because there is no angst for the dual POV to diminish. And being in his head is tough…more so than I thought it would be. Maryse, you’re gonna want to read this one. ;) Well, from what I’ve seen so far. I’ll keep you posted.

Jean January 29, 2018 at 5:32 PM

Omg Amy, that video! I’m cracking up!

Read RB Amy! I’m so curious to hear what you think of it!

Jean January 29, 2018 at 5:33 PM

Oh, and here’s your *huge hug*!

Amy January 29, 2018 at 5:55 PM

*squeezes Jean* Thank you sweet pea!! And Ryan’s Bed will be up next for me because I have to know the last three words. ;)

That guy, right?? LOL!!!

“It’s a baby focking whale!”

“Jay what the fock is that thing?!?”

“We gotta call the aquarium or sumtin’ dude!”

I can’t stop watching it!!!

Amy January 29, 2018 at 5:56 PM

Oh, and Jean…


Go Eagles!! :D

Leslie M January 29, 2018 at 6:09 PM

Ok, just so EVERYONE knows….I may be from Massachusetts and I DO have a slightly annoying accent…but I DO NOT SOUND ANYTHING LIKE THAT GUY! Nor do I swear as much….jeesh!

Leslie M January 29, 2018 at 6:11 PM

I totally want to peek at last lines of both of those books!!

MichelleS January 29, 2018 at 6:12 PM

Amy- do. I watched the whole F-ing video! Hilarious!!! I wish I could see part two. My phone wouldn’t load it. Did they catch that poor dying fish? That’s still got some good meat on there!ha!!

MichelleS January 29, 2018 at 6:13 PM

Update on My Torin…. not sure yet. Author trying too hard, know what I mean?

Jan January 29, 2018 at 6:19 PM

*squeezy hugs Amy*

Oooh now I want to read those three words too Jean. You teaser!

*holds out mug for coffee* Please :)

Jean January 29, 2018 at 6:23 PM

Yay Amy! That accent made the video! I’m sure you don’t sound like THAT Leslie!

Jean January 29, 2018 at 6:29 PM

Don’t read them!

MichelleS, I loved how My Torin ended.

Amy January 29, 2018 at 6:56 PM

Leslie, I LOVE the accent and would love it if you talked like that, LOL!

MichelleS, I didn’t watch it yet. I keep replaying just that video. I love when he razzes Jay over the hook he grabs. *snicker* “Jay’s got a little focking fishing hook. Are you sh!ttin’ me?”

Thank you Jan! *squeezes Jan*

bev January 29, 2018 at 8:25 PM

Ok, I am going to try and watch Train to Busan tomorrow or the next day.


Tessa January 29, 2018 at 8:42 PM

Jean, that makes me happy. She was an auto-buy for me, but I haven’t gotten to it yet.

Oh, your pick for me for Wrecked or Ruin, I can tell it’s going to HURT, and I can’t handle that right now. Instead, I’m putting it off until next week. I’ll be less emotional then. :P

Jean January 29, 2018 at 8:54 PM

Tessa, I think you will love RB! No problem with Wrecked….I get it, but it is an amazing story!

Sharon F January 29, 2018 at 9:15 PM

I’m still hung over from God Shaped Hole. My emotion meter is overly sensitive since my son left for college, and I turned a big age. I want to read Baby Girl, but I’d need to be medicated. I’ll stick to End of Day by Ann Jewel.

bev January 29, 2018 at 9:20 PM

Tessa you should watch a Korean zombie movie.
Always great when you feel emotional.

MichelleS January 29, 2018 at 9:38 PM

I finished My Torin. If I ignore the fact that he was supposed to have Autism, and pretend he had severe anxiety instead, I would like it better. I have worked with hundreds of kids & young people with Autism, and I know she did the research BUT…. nope…. just nope. Not even close to portraying high functioning autism. That aside, it was an okay story!

Kooloo January 29, 2018 at 9:39 PM

Thanks for the shout out!
You too #bev+amy#U2 made my focking morning
Right Jay

Cheryl January 29, 2018 at 10:06 PM


OMG that video I loved when he said I think it’s dead, we have to call the f*cking aquarium!! Like yeh everybody will want to come see the big, f*cking dead fish!!!

Cheryl January 29, 2018 at 10:13 PM

Amy, did you finish This Is Not A Fairytale?

bev January 29, 2018 at 10:24 PM

I had never seen a sunfish. That was funny. But have to admit, though I eat meat, that it always makes me sad when the first reaction is to reel it in or shoot it when something wondrous is seen.
Though apparently it is a delicacies so he and Jay may have had a good payday.

Amy January 29, 2018 at 10:38 PM

bev! My husband just watched that movie…seriously, like two days ago. He liked it (I was distracted by my reading ;) ) and said he would watch it again.

Aw Sharon… *hugs* GSH is fantastic but does beat the crap out of your poor heart. Hey, if you read How to Kill a Rockstar you will find a little Easter egg from GSH. Maryse passed that little bit of info along and when I went back to look it up (I read HTKAR before GSH so I didn’t put two and two together at first), I got all teary with happy emotions. ;)

Amy January 29, 2018 at 10:54 PM

Cheryl…calling the aquarium, right? LOL! And I did finish This Is Not a Fairytale. Ummmm…yeah, I can’t in all good conscience recommend it. To anyone. I just would not be a good friend if I did. *winces* That was harsh, I know, but at least we can be honest here, right?

bev, he and Jay had to be drunk to go from “we have to help it Jay!” to “let’s hook it” to “we’re gonna call the Coast Guard.” *shakes head* I still would LOVE to hang out with those two guys though. :P

Amy January 29, 2018 at 10:58 PM

Tessa, I had to make Court of Mist and Fury a go-back-later because I just don’t remember as much as I thought I did from book one. Soooo, next month when I have surgery (stupid jerk gallbladder) I’ll be laid up and reading nonstop so I’m going to re-read ACOTAR and then go back to ACOMAF. One thing I really DID forget about the book…sexy time with no fade-to-black! *giggle*

bev January 29, 2018 at 11:03 PM

Amy, I want to watch it because it has Gong Yoo!

Maryse & Kooloo guinea pigged it for me and both liked it. If you skim through Tuesdays post you can see some of Maryse’s running commentary. Apparently she got a hernia.
Hmm I wonder if she watched at the same time as your husband and if he is a Gong Yoo fan too.

Jen C January 29, 2018 at 11:59 PM

FYI Something in the Way (Something in the Way Series Book 1)
by Jessica Hawkins is currently freeeee <3

JulieO January 30, 2018 at 6:25 AM

Oh Amy you made my day with that video. And I hate to tell you all from that area of the country that you do sound like him. Of course I’m from Kansas City so do have that midwestern thing going on. Laughed so hard thought I was going to crack a rib.
