Marsye, save yourself of going back and rereading. Get the novella Winter Wishes and read before the epilogue of The Play. It flows seamlessly. I” sure the authir had thus planned. The novella just reads as part of the book. Good read. Stalking her for Brigg’s story coming out.

Sherry D :) December 28, 2015 at 12:39 PM

LOVED The Play!

Theresa December 28, 2015 at 12:48 PM

Help! Anybody read Lisa Marie Rice? I like romantic military suspense.

Debbie December 28, 2015 at 2:11 PM

I read Midnight Man in 2012, so this is a re-release. It’s a great story. I also enjoyed Men of Honor.

Anne December 28, 2015 at 3:22 PM

Starting Break Even. Sounds so good!

Cheryl December 28, 2015 at 3:34 PM

I’m almost finished with Break Even. It is great! Sexy times, with a “love” triangle & a WHAT. IS. GOING. ON?!!! I’ve practically read it on one seating because it’s soooo good and I’m not sure how this is going to end!!! May be a 5* for me.

Maryse December 28, 2015 at 3:50 PM

I love these book updates!!! Thank you guys! :D

Tessa December 28, 2015 at 5:11 PM

Oh, yeah! Tonight I get Untouchable Darkness. :) The first one was a starter book, but darn if it didn’t intrigue me.

Shirley December 28, 2015 at 5:48 PM

Just started Break Even, looks like its going to be a long night of reading. Also, First Touch by Laurelin Paige is releasing tomorrow-its getting great reviews but its a duet and ends on a CH. The 2nd book doesnt release till June.

Grey December 28, 2015 at 8:13 PM

Started Life of Anna… way different than The Others series LOL! *blink, blink*

Also, https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/179094-maryse-s-book-blog-wolfpack-bridesmaids-meeting-place made this as a catchall for the 2016 reading challenge goodreads thing. Join in, if you’ve a mind to! The more the merrier!

Break Even looks delicious… I just got 30 dollars in Amazon gift cards for Christmas… trying to resist… it’s burning a hole in my virtual pocket. *pshaw* who am I kidding, it’s after 8pm, I’m in jammies *giggle*

bev December 28, 2015 at 8:32 PM

Not sure what I’m going to start tonight. Need to decide soon. Read The Storm last yesterday. Wanted something I could start & finish.

bev December 28, 2015 at 8:34 PM

That is a cute title Grey. Not ignoring it, just don’t do good reads.

Tessa December 28, 2015 at 9:11 PM

*happy sigh* Anyone want a super happy romance with a bit of angst, To Love Jason Thorn by Ella Maise. It was so sweet and sexy, fun and the secondary characters felt real. I’m now just happy. :)

I think we should use both Goodreads and the blog to keep track. There are a lot of people who don’t like Goodreads and I’d hate for any to be left out.

bev December 28, 2015 at 10:19 PM

MichelleS turn. Love her list.
Still remember spending a very nice Sunday reading Kyland. I believe on her and Jean’s recommendation.

Anne December 29, 2015 at 1:38 AM

Just finished Irresistibly Yours by Lauren Layne and really liked it! Can’t wait to read the next books in the series :)

Now I am starting Break Even.

fabi December 29, 2015 at 2:10 AM

I just spent 2.5 hours reading Life of Anna book 5 and I’m only at just over 20%. Woah, I guess this one is a long one.

JB McGee December 29, 2015 at 9:58 AM

Thank you so much for sharing my new release. <3

Michelle December 29, 2015 at 10:07 AM

Yep *click* for Break Even.

Tessa, let me know if Untouchable Darkness picks up the pace a bit. I was meh over book 1 but it had potential.

Michelle December 29, 2015 at 10:42 AM

Reading Walk of Shame by.Andrea Smith. She wrote G Men. Pretty good. This is a spinoff. This a about Easton and Darcy’s son.

Lisa M December 29, 2015 at 11:13 AM

Just finished reading Break Even. It was soooooo good!! What a triangle with all sorts of twists or should I say angles!!! I couldn’t put it down!!! Like every good book Ive read!! I just had to find out what happens next n next n next!! Now I’m done!! Wow!! Highly recommend it!!! It’s funny how you have these books on your tbr list n then you read the new releases n ok that book somehow gets to the top!!!!

Maryse December 29, 2015 at 11:31 AM

LOL Grey!!! Jammies, cozy bed-time, and an Amazon gift card? Oh yes… time to indulge in books!! :D

Julie o December 29, 2015 at 1:55 PM

Layers by Sigal Ehrlich is one of my favorites. Also Midnight Man by Lisa Marie Rice is great too, in fact all three in the series are good.

Jean December 29, 2015 at 1:59 PM

I just finished Break Even too…..I seriously could not put it down. So much so that I didn’t make it to work today. Oops… What a tangled web…. Ditto everything Lisa M said up there, and with all her same excitement!

fabi December 29, 2015 at 3:04 PM

ummm…Jean? I didn’t make it to work either because of LoA5. I’ve read all day and am only at 65%. This one is soooo much better without all the gruesomeness. I stumbled over a few inconsistencies and maybe a few too quick turn abouts. But I’ve been dying for this book since I started the series so its not surprising I’m being a total glutton with it.

I’d like to join y’all with Break Even, but…gotta get back to LoA and then to work tomorrow lol.

Niki December 29, 2015 at 4:27 PM

Great idea Grey about the Goodreads page!! I’m reading some Samantha Young books at the moment but will probably start something from this weeks releases next!!

Jean December 29, 2015 at 6:55 PM

Haha fabi, now I don’t feel so bad! I’m reading Caged!

fabi December 29, 2015 at 7:24 PM

You are? OMG, you have to tell me how you like it!
