HAPPY FRIDAY AND HAPPY LONG WEEKEND OF AMAZING THINGS ABOUT TO HAPPEN ALERT!!!!! I have a whole weekend of exploring a new city in Florida planned (well… the city is not new, BUT I AM to that city – Sarasota area… go figure!) You’d think I’d have spent Tim exploring it over my 20+ years in Florida but nope! This weekend it is.
So therefore I had some planning and packing to do, and NOW… time for me to build our list today. I have a ton of goodies already that I’ll be adding in the next early afternoon hours.
TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT WE FOUND FOR THE WEEKEND !!

- Sigma (Alpha Book 4) by Jasinda Wilder <— LIVE!!! “…The night it happened, it seemed like an impossible nightmare. There was no name on the note. No hint of identity or reason or anything. A single word, on the notes line: “She.” Just those three letters. The next day, I received another note. It too contained a single word: “belongs.” A third note, the next day. This time, two words. Four letters. “To me.” Ten million dollars, or our daughter would die. And then, there was a knock on my door...”

- Cash’s Fight by Jamie Begley <— AIMEE LOVED THIS ONE!
Aimee: CASH’S FIGHT by Jamie Begley
I was really loved this one!!! I would say that it was 4-5* if it was for the unrealistic terrorist threat I would rate it at a 5 star… but it didn’t really take away from the story. I wish I would have known that this was in a series because I would have started from the first book. But since I didn’t know, I think I missed out on Shade’s story!!!!
- One Night Only (Regency in Color Book 2) by Elise Marion <— LIVE!! HISTORICAL INTERRACIAL ROMANCE!! “…Thalia Ramsey has resigned herself to a quiet life running a respectable book shop in London’s West End. Nothing exciting ever happens in her world … until Stephen Dryden, His Grace the Duke of Westerfield, begins patronizing her establishment. Her girlish infatuation is completely ridiculous, and nothing will ever come of it. Yet, a heart’s hope is not so easily broken, especially when a chance encounter during a Vauxhall Gardens masquerade brings Thalia face-to-face with the duke…”
- Bedlam Moon: A Reverse Harem, Paranormal Romance by Kathy Haan <— LIVE!!
- Mortal Curse: Steamy Shifter Romance (Shadow Shifters Book 1) by Tia Didmon <— LIVE!!
- Deadly Vows by Haley Stuart <— THIS BOOK MESSED WITH PAULA’S HEAD!!
Paula: …another intense book is called Deadly Vows the guys name is Luca and the girl is Elise – INTENSE – ABUSIVE to the point this one was difficult for me to read and get over…..

- Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah <— Mary Ann LOVES this one!
Mary Ann: Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah is amazing.
Alice: loved that one. So emotional.
- No Commitment: A Secret Baby Second Chance Romance by Lisa Suzanne <— AIMEE IS READING THIS SERIES!
Aimee: It always happens that I read a second in a series so the first one is called No Commitment and it had good ratings but it can be each one can be read as a stand-alone.
It’s a rockstar romance and a slow burn with a little angst and drama… not the full on like I like but a good read!
The 3rd in the series I think sounds really good because it deals with cheating 😳❤️
- Velvet Devil by Nicole Fox <— AIMEE LOVED THIS ONE TOO!
Aimee: I’m on a roll!!! Second good book in a row!!!
Just finished book one in a Russian mafia romance free on kindle unlimited called
Velvet Devil By: Nicole Fox
I would have to say 5 ⭐️ it was so good! It definitely had the Alphahole and I swear he showed no feelings.😳It has a strong female lead, but she definitely loses patience with him!!! Secret kid also!! it is a cliffhanger but I’m so excited to see how this one ends that I’m starting the second one called Velvet Angel.
- Things We Never Got Over by Lucy Score <— LIVE!!! LUCY SCORE ALERT!! HE DOESN’T DO DRAMA & NOW HE MET HER… “…Naomi wasn’t just running away from her wedding. She was riding to the rescue of her estranged twin to Knockemout, Virginia, a rough-around-the-edges town where disputes are settled the old-fashioned way…with fists and beer. Usually in that order. Too bad for Naomi her evil twin hasn’t changed at all. After helping herself to Naomi’s car and cash, Tina leaves her with something unexpected. The niece Naomi didn’t know she had.
