BREAKING NEWS UPDATE!! My latest book review is up (the one I mentioned just below): Book Review – Hold by Claire Kent

YAY Sunday! There are quite a few new releases and super-sales today and a few of ‘em are by our favorites. One I just TOTALLY one-clicked so hard!!! In fact, had I not already started a book, I’d probably be reading it. It’s this one: The Mistake I Made.

Plus, one of my 5-star favorites is on here, too!

But I’m not squirreling! My Sunday is starting out wonderfully ’cause I’m reading a sort of… post apocalyptic/sci-fi right now (after taste-testing three books, I’ve finally settled on this one). *phew* And so far so good!! Hold by Claire Kent has a hold on me! Tee he. ;)

Okay so… she’s sent to a dangerous, survival of the fittest “prison-planet”, for trespassing (yep… all crimes are regarded and punished equally no matter the severity of the crime) and now she’s left alone amongst the most hardened male criminals.

“Find the strongest man there. Give yourself to him in return for protection. It’s the only way you’ll ever survive.”

Yikes!!! Yep. That’s for me. :D

But here are a few surprise Sunday releases and sales!

  1. Lust Thy Neighbor by Emily Snow <— NEW EMILY SNOW RELEASE!!! HE’S HER NEW NEIGHBOR ALERT! “Sarcastic and too good-looking for his own damn good, her new neighbor’s only goal is to survive raising the teenage brother he’s now responsible for. He definitely isn’t looking for a new relationship…”
  2. Earthbound: An Otherworld Novella by Yasmine Galenorn <— YASMINE GALENORN ALERT!
  3. When Nothing Is All You’ve Got by Kirsty Dallas <— DYSTOPIAN ALERT!! The author warns… “ It is raw, and brutal, but also in so many ways, beautiful. I would describe it as Mad Max meeting Cinderella. I hope you enjoy it!” Sounds good!
  4. In Pieces (Finding Peace Book 1) by <— SOUNDS POST APOCALYPTIC! “The world changed thirteen years ago. My life, as well as everyone else’s, was turned upside down. While others pillaged for food and water, I pillaged for weapons and books. If the Heretics want to take over the world, then I’ll lead the Mercenaries to battle for our country…”
  5. The Manny (Locked & Loaded Series Book 1) by Susan Ward <— M/M ROMANCE! “I didn’t want a job guarding a child. I didn’t want to fall in love with her father. I did both.”
  6. Pain By Proxy by M.S. Hart <— SHE CAN ABSORB PEOPLE’S PAIN “After a lifetime of inexplicable suffering, Kaitlyn Walsh is desperate for answers. She finds them when Dr. Robert Mitchell confirms what she’s always secretly believed – she absorbs the pain of other people around her…”
  7. The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4 (The Blueberry Lane Series) by Katy Regnery
  8. Wish Come True (The Blogger Diaries Trilogy Book 3) by KD Robichaux <— TRILOGY CONCLUSION!
  9. Saved by Cara Downey <— ABUSED WOMAN WITH SUBMISSIVE NEEDS ALERT! “She’s naturally submissive, but she’s not aware of her submissive tendencies. Even though she’s survived and risen from out of the ashes… something is still missing in her life…”
  10. Bastard SEAL: A Bad Boy Forbidden Baby Romance ((Contains bonus book Based!)) by B. B. Hamel <— SHE GOT PREGNANT AFTER THEIR ONE NIGHT STAND ALERT! “When he shows up on my doorstep months later to warn me that my life is in danger, I can’t believe him. But soon it all becomes clear: Emory’s been hunting a group of international terrorists, and now those enemies know that Mason and I exist…”
  11. The Mistake I Made: A Novel <— PSYCH THRILLER SUPER-SALE that sounds so good!!! She’s out of money and about to be evicted with her young son, but a married stranger offers her money for one night… “With that kind of cash, Roz could clear her debts and get her life back on track. But as the situation spirals out of her control, Roz is forced to do things she never thought herself capable of.
  12. Finn Beckett: Rockers of Steel by MJ Fields <— ROCK STAR DOWNWARD SPIRAL AND THAT ONE GIRL THAT RUINS HIM!! And it’s on super-sale!! He’s finally got his life together after his drugs and rock ‘n roll downward spiral… and now he’s ready to perform again. “The day has finally come when I will walk onstage, not as an opening act, but as the act. Hours before my dream comes to fruition, though, I run into a girl, one f’ing girl, and I am back on the path of destruction…
  13. After I Do: A Novel by Taylor Jenkins Reid <— MARITAL DISCORD & ONE OF MY 5-STAR FAVORITES still on super-sale!!! This is a must-read!!! (my review)

Happy Sunday everyone! Just finished Paper Princess. Floved it!!

Debating on what is next… I don’t even know what I’m in the mood for. Yikes LOL!

Maryse April 17, 2016 at 11:00 AM


Let’s buddy read it. It’s good so far!! :D

shawnee April 17, 2016 at 12:24 PM

I’m going to read it, too!!!!

Maryse April 17, 2016 at 12:51 PM

Yay Shawnee!!! I’m half way through it and still very much into it! :D

Cheryl April 17, 2016 at 1:23 PM

You know Maryse I am usually not interested in the “post apocalyptic/sci-fi” read, but something about Hold makes me want to read it. May be jumping on the buddy read bandwagon. ;)

Just have to finish Child Star (not sure if this was a rec from your blog or I just came upon it; but so far it’s good).

Robyn April 17, 2016 at 2:21 PM

A. Giannoccaro’s The Goodbye Girl came out today. It is the sequel to The Goodbye Man part of the Red Market series. Very dark read!

Thanks for posting some new books Maryse! I have been in a book funk lately where nothing peeked my interest. I might start with Hold, but The Manny keeps calling to me and I usually don’t read M/M!

bev April 17, 2016 at 2:43 PM

What has our Manny been up to?

Amy April 17, 2016 at 5:51 PM

How funny…I clicked and started The Mistake I Made on the way home today!! :D I’m not far enough in yet (only at 5%) to say if it’s grabbed me or not, but I’m hopeful.

And now I’m craving something post-apocalyptic or dystopian as well with all of the ones mentioned up there!

Bev…Manny is sulking and showing me his back since I left him home alone this weekend. ;)

It’s Monday already here in Australia and KA’s new one, Bounty, just rolled in to my Kindle this morning. Colorado series. I’m 15% in and (to use Grey’s term) floving it. (What a great word, Grey!) I love both H and h, love the setup, plus we get to meet some of our old friends from previous books. Looks like KA gold. Then tomorrow Kylie Scott’s Dirty is in. I won’t have finished Bounty by then as it’s a classic KA long meaty read, but my reading week is go-go-go and it’ll be fab to know Dirty is just there on hold when I’m done with Bounty. Funny, I thought I was getting Dirty today and Bounty tomorrow but it’s turned out the other way around. Whatever. I’m in book heaven.

Maryse April 17, 2016 at 6:27 PM


Now I need to hug on Manny.

Maryse April 17, 2016 at 6:36 PM

Okay Amy… I just started it. Buddy read!!!

bev April 17, 2016 at 6:37 PM

Um……Amy did you see the book up there, The Manny? He may not have stayed in that corner.

Amy April 17, 2016 at 8:18 PM

Bev…you mean, he may not have stayed in that CLOSET. *snort* :P

YES MARYSE!! Buddy read! *happy wiggle dance*

Theresa April 17, 2016 at 8:26 PM

Harper Sloan but is up for preorder

bev April 17, 2016 at 9:20 PM

I ordered a mystery polish today. It is the brands mystery spring polish, named Pig Pen. Yes, that PigPen. Lol. Curious how that will translate to a polish.

bev April 17, 2016 at 9:21 PM

And that is nail polish, Ela. I did not order a mystery polish person.

Fabi April 17, 2016 at 9:25 PM

lol Bev

Lisa April 18, 2016 at 3:36 AM

Yep. Bounty is in…..and Dirty tomorrow. Im almost done with Stuck-up Suit and ready for a KA fest.

Fabi April 18, 2016 at 6:45 AM

It’s Christmas morning! I just woke up to First and First on my Kindle.

DG April 18, 2016 at 7:33 AM

It’s a KA Monday!!!!!! KA makes all Monday’s OK!!! (despite what RL throws our way)

DG April 18, 2016 at 7:37 AM

Read Marek by S. Nelson yesterday….and it is a cliffy!!!! Yep, not a gasping and freaking out cliffy but still I hate a cliffy. Would not have went there if I had known…it was a ok read but not worth the cliffy.

Molly April 18, 2016 at 7:50 AM

YAY Fabi! I just finished First and First and LOVED it! Oli and Caleb = perfection! I And now I pissed because it’s over.

Fabi April 18, 2016 at 8:01 AM

Crap Molly! You inhaled it! I’m at 8% and I just can’t believe his writing has gotten even better considering how good it was to start.

Molly April 18, 2016 at 8:47 AM

LOL yes! My thoughts exactly. I was a big Sonny and Ais fan after reading ICoS. But after reading his new books – JUST WOW!

Ela April 18, 2016 at 11:11 AM

I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a HAWT Polish GUY????


Lisa April 18, 2016 at 8:51 PM

Hey Molly…I like your avatar! You’re me with a green dye job! ;)
