YAY!! Two new book releases, and bargain priced, too!!

The first one is by popular author Abbi Glines (author of the The Vincent Boys series, Existence series, and Because of Low (Sea Breeze)

While It Lasts by Abbi Glines – This one just came out yesterday and my friend Christina already devoured it saying:

“OMG. while it lasts, by Abbi Glines, 16% in and the girl hates him but he’s already seeing red and being protective, Well, doesn’t hate him but doesn’t like him much.

and then…

Read While It lasts, and I loved it! I really did. Kind of steamy for a YA. I guess maybe its a mature YA read…”

YAY to this!! I’ve added it to my TBR list.

Avoiding Commitment (Avoiding Series) by K.A. Linde

…. and also THE book that had us all in an agonized, infuriated reading frenzy (believe me… you’ll be furious many many times over) a month or so ago. It has just been released on Amazon (to refresh your memory, here is my review: Book Review – Avoiding Commitment by K.A. Linde).

It’s sheer romantic torture, with the crazy circumstances, infuriating moments, the lies and deceit. But also PLENTY of swoonworthy moments too. After all, you have to keep pining to enjoy all the “reading-aches”. Most aren’t able to stop reading this one, no matter how upset it makes them (me included), and isn’t that kind of the point? Fictional agony that we can experience for the thrills and adrenaline rushes, and still walk away shaking our heads, realizing we have all the answers and if the characters would just LISTEN to us, this craziness would never have to happen? Hee hee!! Good (and bad) times ahead… ;)

I shall be reviewing #2 shortly (and there’s a third in the works!)

Hahaha that’s the SAME reaction my husband has when he wakes up in the middle of the night seeing me read my ipad in bed!

Thanks Maryse again for the great never steer us wrong!

Loved Avoiding Commitment. Eventhough, Jack was a major douchcanoe. I was rooting for Jack and Lexi to be together. What I loved about this storyline is we as woman tend to be forgiving to the man we love, eventhough everyone around us is telling us it is a MISTAKE.

Maryse July 31, 2012 at 9:18 AM

haha!! You said Douchecanoe! Awwww… now I miss Dex.

Finished Avoiding Commitment & Avoiding Responsibility this past week & I still haven’t gotten over them & not sure I ever will. I’ve been a complete emotional wreck for an entire week, not to mention the lack of sleep since I was staying up til 3 a.m. to read. You couldn’t be more on target about the “fictional agony”. It was pure emotional torture to read AC but yet I couldn’t put it down. I didn’t find AR as torturous & the ending was a bit far-fetched for me, but of course I had to know what happened. I’m still shaking my head while trying to process all of it.

Started reading “While it Lasts” last night and I am 60% in and loving it. Kind of has that Beautiful Disaster feel. Definitely gets my heart pounding which I like!

Maryse July 31, 2012 at 1:43 PM

ahhhh Angela. Magic words!!!

Angela July 31, 2012 at 6:43 PM

Update, finished at work today (yes I was supposed to be working but couldn’t put it down) very good even had a little bit of “Slammed” in there. Had my heart pounding up until the very end!

Dina August 1, 2012 at 8:09 AM

Hey Sheri- How do I read the 2nd book Avoiding Responsibility ?!?! I dont see it on Amazon or Barnes…..?!?!

Maryse August 1, 2012 at 9:02 AM

Hi Dina!

It, too, used to be free on Fictionpress, but the author has taken it down while it is being edited and readied for Amazon.

It should be available on Amazon within a month or two. :)

Sheri August 1, 2012 at 9:52 AM

Dina, like Maryse said it was on Fictionpress & that’s when I got it. It should be on Amazon soon though.

Melanie August 2, 2012 at 9:36 AM

Can’t wait for book 3, I loved this series and there is so much more to tell. If you haven’t read book 2 just wait for theroller coaster ride! It’s so good and now just have to wait for more!

Maryse August 2, 2012 at 11:48 AM

Melanie! I have read #2 and liked it even more! I will put up the review as soon as #2 is available.

Sara Minor August 2, 2012 at 3:07 PM

You turned me on to this, and i read the preview on I was so excited that this was actually out, got it right away and finished it in a day or two. I really liked this book, I cant wait for #2…

Maryse August 2, 2012 at 5:05 PM

Dina August 2, 2012 at 10:16 PM

OMG- Just read While it Lasts today in one sitting!!!!!!!!!!! What a great steamy read!!!! I luved Cage from Because of Low and happy he got his own love story!!!! :)

Sara Minor August 3, 2012 at 12:37 AM

Ya it made me suffer. I was dying to find out what the heck was going to happen. I got tot the end and I was like WHAT!!! Now I knew about book 2…. But book 3????? Say what??

Angela August 3, 2012 at 10:59 AM

Just a heads up to all of you reading While it Lasts, I just realized today when I updated my goodreads it is part of a series. There is Breathe, Because of Low, and While it Lasts. It doesn’t look like you have to read them in order though. I am going to start the others today!

Trinity August 6, 2012 at 8:34 PM

Where can you find Avoiding Commitment?

Trinity August 6, 2012 at 8:37 PM

Never mind, lol.

Minha August 7, 2012 at 5:59 AM

Loved, loved, LOOOOOOOVED while it lasts!!! 5 stars for me.
Thank you Maryse for the recommendation. I just started reading all the other books from this author now… I am having an Abbi Glines marathon!!! :)

Keighley August 15, 2012 at 3:39 AM

Im 86% through While it Lasts and I needed to come on here for a ‘squeee’ cos i am LOVING it! Fast moving, great characters, great heart and i think STEAMY has already been said :O
