Ten exciting looking new book releases, including one that I’m reading as we speak!!! Plus, there’s a few book-bargain finds that are too good to skip. So I made us a list, and I checked it twice! ;) *snort* Okay I couldn’t help being a little holiday-corny. LOL!

P.S. One of my favs from a few months ago (Dark Matter) is a Kindle Deal of the Day today!! :D !!!!! I posted it below along with a link to my review.


  1. Bad Mommy by Tarryn Fisher <— LIVE!!! TARRYN FISHER’S LATEST STALKER LADY ALERT!!! She’s their new neighbor, because “…everything she desires is next door: The husband, the child, and the life that belongs to someone else.” <— GASP!!! And this is the one Im reading now and TOTALLY INTO!!!!! HOLY. MOLY. As soon as I post this list, I’m diving back ’cause I’m halfway through and gotta what’s gonna happen. NOW!!!
  2. Hate Story by Nicole Williams <— LIVE!!! NICOLE WILLIAMS ALERT!!! FAKE MARRIAGE ARRANGEMENT BUT… they have both been stung in the past so they don’t want to get attached. “Three years. A million dollars. A solution to both of their problems. They planned it all, from the story of their first meeting to the date of their divorce. Nothing could go wrong. But what they didn’t consider was chemistry, and Nina and Max have no shortage of it. After too many near-kisses, Nina convinces herself that hating Max is better than loving him, and the more she gets to know this soon-to-be-husband of hers, the more she discovers just how very much she truly, madly, and deeply . . . hates him. This isn’t a love story. This is the other kind.” <— YIKES!!! I LOVE the sound of that!!! :D !!!!
  3. Face-Off at the Altar (Assassins Book 10) by Toni Aleo <— LIVE!!! HOCKEY STAR ALERT!!! He broke her heart, and now they are face-to-face at a wedding… “Mekena Preston has been hurting since fleeing Nashville following the horror of Markus’s betrayal with her sister. Now a professional photographer, Mekena finds herself in the same place at the same time with Markus to celebrate Lucy and Benji Paxton’s wedding.” <— Eeeeep!!! There’s gonna be some friction there!!!
  4. Savage: A Second Chance at Love by Jordan Silver <— LIVE!! HE WANTS REVENGE…As a lieutenant, he’s sworn to uphold the law but Nick no longer cares. There’re only two things he gives a damn about, vengeance and reclaiming the love he’d lost..”
  5. One-Timer (The Baltimore Banners Book 9) by Lisa B. Kamps <— LIVE!!! HE’S A HOCKEY STAR & SHE’S HIS NEW TUTOR ALERT!! “Maggie Andersen dreads meeting her new student but she needs the money that tutoring will provide. That doesn’t mean she’s willing to put up with the anticipated antics of an arrogant brainless jock. When she finally meets Dillon, he turns out to be the exact opposite of what she expected: smart, funny, driven, and humble…” <— Oh I love the sound of this!!!

  10. Wet: A Small Town Romance (Love in Lone Star Book 1) by Ashley Bostock <— LIVE!! SHE’S REFORMED FROM HER DELINQUENT DAYS……now I am Lone Star’s only reporter and I’ve come a long way from being that lost, troubled girl. Even if most of the town still judged me for it.

What she uncovers–about her daughter’s fears, her own marriage, and herself–forces Katie to consider whether there’s any price she isn’t willing to pay to achieve Devon’s dream…
  12. Dark Matter: A Novel by Blake Crouch <— TWISTY-THRILLER ALERT!!! If anyone’s been wanting to read “Dark Matter” it’s a KINDLE DEAL OF THE DAY!!! I loved this one… what a crazy ride!!! My review!!
  13. Born Wild (Black Knights Inc. Book 5) by Julie Ann Walker <— SHE TURNS TO AN EX-NAVY SEAL TO PROTECT HER…Eve doesn’t know what to do when the Chicago police won’t believe someone is out to hurt her. The only place to turn is Black Knights Inc-after all, no one is better at protection than the covert special-ops team.

There are a couple of these that I almost forgot I was wanting, I need the reminder thank you. I have been trying to read over the Christmas break, The Guide of Time by Cinzia de Santis, I love it, I need to buckle down and just finish it!!

Maryse December 26, 2016 at 11:40 AM

YAY!! I’m so thrilled, Julia.

Now I have to look up the one you’re reading. :D

bev December 26, 2016 at 11:55 AM

Finishing up a Christmas novella, then maybe The Snow fang Bride, One Fell Sweep, or In Barren Ground.
Having a hard time making up my mind.

Robyn December 26, 2016 at 12:51 PM

Maryse, have you read Scarlett Stone by Jewel E. Ann yet? That book! I can’t stop thinking about it. It was a jaw dropping, angsty tear jerky book. Everything we love!! You gotta read it, it had major feels.

Lisa C December 26, 2016 at 2:57 PM

Just read Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum. It was NA I guess. MC is 16. It was really good. Didn’t really feel like high school.

Jen C December 26, 2016 at 11:20 PM

Can we gush about Bad Mommy? I don’t usually write reviews on Amazon/Goodreads (there’s a reason I read books and not write them!) but I had to for this one. I won’t repeat it here lol but I will say this… A fascinating, intoxicating read. Brave and honest.

And I loved playing detective – little comments from the book I remember from Facebook/Instagram etc. WOWZERS.

Just finished CD Reiss’s Shuttergirl and it was a page-turner. Really smart writing, good storyline, and satisfying characters. A Paparazzi Photographer/Movie Star, second-time romance, set in LA. Lots of Hollywood twists and turns through both the superficial and gritty sides of the city, that take it back and forth from passionate reconnection to the sadness of impossible circumstances. Definitely recommend it!

Lindsay December 27, 2016 at 2:17 AM

All The Ugly and Wonderful Things price dropped to 2.99!!

Jen C December 27, 2016 at 3:17 AM

Beard Science by Penny Reid has dropped to $1.99 too (normally $5.99 and book one in that series, Truth or Beard, is free at the moment!).

Oh more! The Problem with Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout has dropped to $2.99 (was $7.99) and A Thousand Boy Kisses by Tillie Cole has dropped to $1.99 (was $2.99).

Fabi December 27, 2016 at 9:04 AM

I’m finally reading Dark Matter and just kicking myself for having waited so long to get to it. @10% I have no doubt it’ll be my December favorite.

Tasha J December 27, 2016 at 9:24 AM

Just got The Bird and the Sword for $1.99!! And Empire of Storms for $3.99!! :)

Amy December 27, 2016 at 10:49 AM

I am absolutely relishing Bad Mommy. RELISHING!!!!! I love being in the heads of TF’s characters while they are becoming (or already are) unhinged.

TF is one of those authors I want to hug just for the simple fact that they chose to write in this life. ;)

Amy December 27, 2016 at 10:54 AM

OH!!! A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir is 2.99!!

I read the first one and it was GREAT! Another spot-on rec from bev. ;)

Ela December 27, 2016 at 11:37 AM

I really want to read The Bird and the Sword all over again! I absolutely LOVED that book! It’s so different and I LOVE DIFFERENT

Nay December 27, 2016 at 9:08 PM

I keep seeing y’all mention The Bird and the Sword all over the place, so I finally looked it up. I had marked it on GR but had completely forgotten what it was about. Wow! It sounds awesome! So do the S. Tahir books.

I just wish there were more books like this that weren’t YA. I can read a YA book and enjoy it, and maybe even love it every once in a while, but I just prefer older characters. I’m even ok with 19-21. Do y’all know of any good fantasy romance books like these that have older main characters? Or better yet, would either of these be considered new adult??

Nay December 27, 2016 at 9:11 PM

Fabi–I’m trying to decide if Dark Matter or Wolfsong is going to be my February challenge book. IF I can wait that long to read either one of them!

Fabi December 27, 2016 at 9:59 PM

lol Nay, they’re kinda different.

btw, I just finished listening to The Bird and the Sword. The h is 20 y.o. and the H several years older. I wouldn’t call it YA. But it doesn’t have any graphic sex scenes so it could be read by a younger audience. It’s really a beautiful fantasy romance, although, I can’t really recommend the narration.

Maryse December 30, 2016 at 2:52 PM

I haven’t yet, Robyn (I did just finish Only Trick) and I want to read this new one BAD!!! Thank you for the feedback on it!!! :D

Amy December 30, 2016 at 3:50 PM

Yep…Bad Mommy, Thoughtless, FSoG, EIT, and (I believe) Mud Vein all take place in Seattle. So does Marrow, and it evens takes place in Lacey where I frequently have to go. :D

I had to work out of Seattle yesterday which was what brought on all the thoughts of having y’all there with me. ;)
