  1. A Wish For Us by Tillie Cole <— TILLIE COLE ALERT!!!Nineteen-year- old Cromwell Dean is the rising star of electronic dance music. Thousands of people adore him. But no one knows him. No one sees the color of his heart. Until the girl in the purple dress. She sees through the walls he has built to the empty darkness within. When Cromwell leaves behind the gray skies of England to study music in the South Carolina heat, the last thing he expects is to see her again.

Imagine his surprise when he finds himself lusting after his upstairs tenant, a sunny, Australian people pleaser down on her luck. Turns out his ability to terrify with a single scowl comes with an advantage. Autumn seems to like it. A lot. As evidenced by the prisoner-captive comic Blake was never meant to see. As they embark on a three-date arrangement the rules are clear; filthy, ground breaking sex, no feelings or commitment required…”
  4. Untamed (Irresistible Bachelors Book 9) by Lauren Landish <— SECOND CHANCE ROMANCE ALERT!! ”…A decade later, he’s back in my life. But he’s changed. Gone is the happy-go-lucky boy I knew, replaced by a brooding, mysterious beast of a man. Gone are the boyish good looks and innocent laughter. His broad chest, rippling arms, and chiseled abs have all exploded until he’s literally a mountain of pure muscle. Still, some things haven’t changed. One look from him, and the fire he lit in my belly flares back to life...”
  5. Wild Card (Billionaire Bachelors Book 3) by Lila Monroe <— EX-HOCKEY STAR ALERT!!Is there anything worse than playing maid-of-honor to your bitchy college nemesis?

Ace of Hearts (The Cursed Ravens MC Series Book 1) by Chantal Fernando <— HER BIOLOGICAL FATHER IS THE MC PREZ… “…she finds her father, but begins questioning if her mom had been right all along to keep this information buried. It turns out he is the president of a motorcycle club, which could not be further from the life Erin leads. But, she’s determined to get to know the man who she gets her striking blue eyes from. Despite getting what she wants and finding her biological father, it’s the slightly older, much rougher but incredibly sexy biker Ace that catches Erin’s eye...”

Sand, sun, surf, and lots of alone time sound good to this disgruntled centerman. Only problem is the beach house is already occupied—by beautiful and spunky Cara Milne. Cara and Jaxon are off to a rocky start after an extremely awkward first meeting. Yeah, these two pretty much hate each other. But Jaxon, forever a “player” at heart, vows to win his housemate over. What he doesn’t know is Cara is Mr. Hockeypants!

  16. Only You by Elle Ward
  17.

And as a single teen mother, Robin fell within the scope of the scheme and lost her baby two years ago.

Happy *yawn* Monday!

Pass the coffee please.

Nay June 11, 2018 at 6:45 AM

Good morning! I’m starting “If You Say So” today. Going to see what all the fuss is about.

Tasha J June 11, 2018 at 6:49 AM

Mmhmm..I texted my hubby to please bring me a latte on his way home. The toddler slept amazingly last night. Though, I moved him downstairs to our bed while I seize the living room. J baby on the other hand, wished me not to sleep. And so here I am! Lol
I’m in the mood for a Tessa Bailey, I think. Or an MC or something.

Tasha J June 11, 2018 at 6:50 AM

Ahh, you brave girl, Nay! I read almost all the bad reviews on GR trying to find a spoiler, message me when you’re done if it’s worth it!

Leslie M June 11, 2018 at 7:01 AM

Oh Nay, I am curious to see what all the fuss is about.

Maryse June 11, 2018 at 7:50 AM

Nay! I’ve just started it, too. :)

Nay June 11, 2018 at 8:18 AM

I always feel badly for authors when they receive bad reviews for well-written books just because their story line doesn’t fit the ‘mold’ for what is expected. And some of them even receive bad reviews for what should be expected, like the 1-star reviews I often see for a biker/MC book because it’s too taboo in some way. Uhhh, it’s a biker book that meant to be dark and gritty and ‘go there’…

So anyway, I’m anxious to give this author a chance. And one thing that made me want to read it even more was finding out that she also writes as Emma Grayson and I read two of her books back in 2013 and loved both of them.

Nay June 11, 2018 at 8:19 AM

Will do, Tasha!

bev June 11, 2018 at 8:29 AM

Tasha, should we guess based on the blurb?

1. Everything is tense with her ex….is this the reason? No. They made it…..but he needs to do just one more fight. The author is a Rocky fan and decides her hero’s story ends like Apollo Creed.

2. The ex kills him.

3. The author is a kdrama fan and when everything seems fine the hero just tries to cross the street and is taken out by the truck of doom.

Maryse June 11, 2018 at 9:26 AM

Oh I didn’t realize that, Nay!!! And I’m with you. I just want a story to be captivating and real and if it stuns me, then so be it. P.S. I like that!! ;)

MichelleS June 11, 2018 at 10:04 AM

Nay – right? Why even read an MC book if you don’t like gritty? Makes no sense.

I am reading a light, funny romance. I needed something like that after the wringer that The Ribbon Series put me through. It’s called Good Two Shoes, by J.E. Henderson. He’s a famous singer who is ready to settle down and wants a sensible wife, likes the idea of old fashioned arranged marriages. She’s s very sensible Scottish lass who wears grey a lot. Ha! The small town in Scotland and the crew of misfits who is helping with the wedding is hilarious.

bev June 11, 2018 at 10:23 AM

That sounds adorable MichelleS.

Tasha J June 11, 2018 at 10:27 AM

It’s number 2! Has to be a death. OR, it’s an amazing whirlwind of a romance, the ex comes back, Jay “takes care of him” and he’s sent to prison. The end. Lol

Tasha J June 11, 2018 at 10:40 AM

That does sound good MichelleS.
Bev, I totally did not flake on Secretary Kim btw. It was just a rough weekend. I’m kid free (except for the baby) for like an hour tonight, as long as the baby doesn’t need to eat or something, I’m going to try again. It’s harder w/subtitles Bc I have to really pay attention and there’s always chaos around me somewhere.

R. Renee June 11, 2018 at 10:41 AM

I’m out of the loop. Who wrote it Nay?

R. Renee June 11, 2018 at 10:41 AM

Oh and Full Tilt is FREE until the 15th.

bev June 11, 2018 at 12:08 PM

Ooh, good one. Then while he is away she falls for someone new.

It dies take more concentration. I can do things like wash dishes while I watch….well sometimes. Depends on show. But I forget sometimes that I do not understand and will try and walk away while still paying attention, lol .

bev June 11, 2018 at 12:33 PM

Cleaning and have music on shuffle.

But curious when cleaning what do you all like? Music? Tv? Audio books?

Tasha J June 11, 2018 at 12:37 PM

Silence. I like silence. Lol

I settled on Alessandra Torre’s Even Money. And, I preordered Lying in Wait for tomorrow’s release. I’m so psyched about this book, I hope it lives up to the hype.

Tessa June 11, 2018 at 1:02 PM

Cleaning is faster with music. lol Though, maybe not because if a song I don’t like that is in your face comes on, I stop what I’m doing and change it. The bad songs are rarely in your face, however. Usually they are just background boring.

Maryse June 11, 2018 at 1:56 PM


I think just TV playing in the background. Keeping me company. Usually cooking or home reno shows which gives me that extra incentive and enthusiasm. ;)

Tasha J June 11, 2018 at 2:09 PM

I have to say, I downloaded as much as I could from your song list the other day, Bev, and I absolutely love Dark Side of the Moon.

Amy June 11, 2018 at 2:16 PM

Maryse and Nay, I can’t wait to hear what you think of If You Say So. I’m a sucker for non-traditional endings which don’t wrap up perfectly with a pretty bow!

In fact, I’m not far into my current read and thereby not really invested, so maybe I’ll join you guys…

Amy June 11, 2018 at 2:18 PM

When cleaning I like the TV on for background noise, usually the ID channel. I even use the ID channel app on my iPad when I’m in a room without a TV.

I’m totally clicking Child Thief. Dystopian with a completely unique plot. Oh yes.

bev June 11, 2018 at 2:30 PM

I love that song Tasha. So simple but says so much. I’m so glad you like it.
Let me know if you get another chance with Secretary Kim, lol.

bev June 11, 2018 at 2:31 PM

If I have tv shows playing I like old favorites like Gilmore Girls or The Golden Girls.

Grey June 11, 2018 at 3:08 PM

I’m almost ready to ask for a number. I’ve read a bunch of good books lately… Nothing wrong with them… But I’m ready to be kicked, you know? I need one that is gonna wow me. R has just been teasing about the New Camelot series on FB and making me nostalgic… And then I was thinking about the ACOTAR series…and debating about Sarah Maas’ other series… But I don’t know. Maybe something dark or not, I just want a 5… I just want to throw my glitter, dang it!

bev June 11, 2018 at 3:39 PM

Grey, have you read Sea of T?

Grey June 11, 2018 at 3:46 PM

bev, no, i have not… I do own it though…

Tessa June 11, 2018 at 3:54 PM

Both Throne of Glass and Sea of Tranquility were good. Both are more YA than adult, so in those cases it’d be angsty romance of broken people vs angsty action insanity.

Grey June 11, 2018 at 4:09 PM

Got a bully, Tessa?

Michele G June 11, 2018 at 4:09 PM

I agree with Tessa – both Throne of Glass and Sea of Tranquility were good. But def more YA.

bev June 11, 2018 at 4:16 PM

I say go with Sea of T. One of the blog favorites across the board. I mean I’m sure some on here do not care for it, but one that many with different taste did. Ah, back in my lurker days.

Amy June 11, 2018 at 4:16 PM

Grey, I’ve heard SJM’s other series is just as enjoyable. Dang, craving that book love or book wow and not finding it is worse than having a back itch you can’t reach to scratch. :?

Okay, I just noticed the cover for IYSS is the same one used for Evol, which I just finished. It’s a sign, I tell ya. I’m jumping in the Say So blankie fort with you guys! :D

Tessa June 11, 2018 at 5:09 PM

Grey, you know that as soon as I find one, I’ll tell you. :) I was looking and realized I still need to read the second book of the Carter Kids. His twin is the bully to the MC, not him, so it doesn’t really qualify.

Tessa June 11, 2018 at 5:10 PM

Maybe at the beginning, he was a bully? I forget. I need to re-read it.

Tessa June 11, 2018 at 5:12 PM


Leslie M June 11, 2018 at 5:17 PM

Grey, you have a lot of goodies on your TBR. I could rec quite a few depending on your mood. ;)

Leslie M June 11, 2018 at 5:41 PM

Bev, always audiobooks for me when I clean (cook/laundry etc). They keep me company and distract my brain so I dont get as grumpy doing my chores! :)

Maryse June 11, 2018 at 6:27 PM


Amy June 11, 2018 at 6:34 PM


Amy June 11, 2018 at 6:44 PM

Oooooooh, YES! Sea of Tranquility is a must-read!!

Also, Grey, have you read Edge of Never? It’s another much-loved, swoonie oldie.

Jan June 11, 2018 at 6:48 PM

*spits coffee*

‘The author is a kdrama fan and when everything seems fine the hero just tries to cross the street and is taken out by the truck of doom.’

bev, bev, bev. You made me laugh. *hugs bev*

Michelle I looked up that cute sounding book you’re reading and ITS FREE so I 1-clicked. Thank you.

MichelleS June 11, 2018 at 7:08 PM

Grey / I say GO FOR IT with Sarah J Maas’s other series, Throne of Glass. I loved that one as much as ACOTR. Kick ass female characters, and beyond yummy male characters. And the Fae. Mic drop….

MichelleS June 11, 2018 at 7:11 PM

Jan- yup. It’s free. And I’m enjoying the pure old fashioned romance with humor mixed in. Impromptu girl’s night at the castle. Bon Fire. Doors being removed. Paparazzi dodging. Hilarious.

bev June 11, 2018 at 7:31 PM

I guess character death by getting run over are so prevalent in k dramas that it is called the truck of doom.

Maryse June 12, 2018 at 5:56 AM

Yes!!! Er… sorry… fell asleep. YES JOIN US AMY!!

Tasha J June 13, 2018 at 9:41 AM

I love it Bev! Your taste in music is cool in my book ;) That song and other oldies like it always give me a nostalgic feeling of being at my aunt and uncle’s. We were so close w/my cousin growing up, we were more like siblings and this is the music they listened to. They were always in the living room in their chairs with the tv on golf, muted, and the music on with my aunt reading a book. Comforting, feel good music. :)

Tasha J June 13, 2018 at 11:34 AM

*you’re. I do know the difference. We’ll blame it on sleep deprivation. ;)

Tasha J June 13, 2018 at 11:35 AM

Nope. That’s sleep deprivation. My brain is not working. I’m tapping out. Hahaha
