Tragic (Lark Cove Book 3)
<— THIS ONE’S GOING LIVE AT MIDNIGHT!!!! And I was delighted to get an early review copy (this author’s writing and alpha males are spot on and right up my alley). And I was especially delighted when it featured a moody, big huge grump of a reclusive hero… who just happened to be her new neighbor. GAH!! I LOVE GRUMPY NEIGHBORS. Er… in books. Always and only in books (P.S. My neighbors are really awesome. I love my neighborhood!!). But boy do I love that kind of book drama. ;)

And this one had it in spades!!! YAY ME!! Plus, it had a killer “OH-NO-HE-DIDN’T!!!” moment that kicked me right in the gut and had me roaring!! I love when that happens, too. :P

Maryse: I’m reading a review copy of Devney Perry’s upcoming “Tragic” (it’s freaking fantastic so far and I haven’t put it down) and I just hit the ultimate “OH NO HE DIDN’T!!!!” moment… *ooooomph!!!!*

MAJOR *oooomph!!!!*

P.S. He’s her super-grumpy, reclusive neighbor. How could I resist? ;)

Maria: I’ve been reading her Jamison Valley series and I am OBSESSED!!!!!

Tilly: I read Tattered (Lark Cove Book 1) by Devney Perry and loved it! 2nd book is Timid. I love all of her books and highly recommend them!

Linda: Reading Tattered by Devney Perry and loving it!!

Susan: Have you read book 1 and 2?

Maryse: I haven’t but this one reads super-well as a standalone (although I hear the characters cross over).

Kathy: I have been waiting for Piper’s story!! So excited to read it!

Susan: I love ALL her books! She’s so good

Linda: Love everything she writes!! Started Timid (Lark Cove Book 2) last night and only a few chapters in and already just know it’s going to be amazing read.

Vicki: Highly recommend anything she writes.

Ali: Both of her series are amazing!

So what’s it about?

Piper is trying to overcome her husband’s betrayal, and her own personal pain over not being able to have children. She’s starting over and making it on her own. Moving close to her family again when she finds herself the perfect fixer-upper in the woods… with an incredible view. She feels like she’s finally where she belongs. And then she sees him,

Even from a distance it was clear that he was the quintessential mountain man, big and brawny.

…kneeling on the ground looking like he’s grieving.

…besides his rugged appeal, there was something else drawing me in. Something that made me want to wrap my arms around his narrow waist and promise him it would be okay.

Reclusive Kaine is trying to overcome his own grief and has secluded himself from everyone (including his own mother whom he loves). He’s been living in his own personal oasis in his run-down cabin in the woods, but that’s just fine with him. He’s not social and he has no intention of entertaining anyway, and just wants to be left alone. Sure… he had neighbors, but they kept to themselves, were vacationers and rarely there anyway.

His life changes however when Piper buys his neighbor’s house,

I’d spent two days after her arrival dreading the idea of company up here. I’d gotten used to living up here alone. Even before my former neighbors had passed, they hadn’t been here much. So when she’d stayed away for two weeks, I’d figured she’d given up.

I’d relaxed, glad I wouldn’t have to share this mountainside.

Then a week ago, right as the May flowers had begun to bloom, and Airstream had backed into her driveway.

moving in next door, and begins a full on renovation on the house she just bought. Driving. Him. CRAZY!!!!

She obviously didn’t have any boundaries. She’d come marching over to my property without an invitation last month. Then when I’d sent her as clear a get f*cking lost message as you could get, she’d shouted at me through the door I’d slammed in her face.

Who did that?

Yep. She’s plenty social and cheerful and well… neighborly, and she’s grating on his last nerve. OH THE FUN!!!!

Plenty of push and pull,

My gaze roamed her face, picking it apart and searching for things I didn’t like. But I came up empty.

Son of a bitch. I liked it all…

and some heartwarming, cozy-snuggle moments to melt with into a gooey smiling mess. But even better? Some seriously infuriating moments (and sad ones) too. Well-paced, a few gasp-worthy reveals, and the backstories to both main characters had merit and shaped them, just right. I will let you uncover the rest for yourselves (and trust me, there’s plenty more excitement to follow). ;)

She flung out a hand, waving me away.

“Go be grumpy somewhere else.”

LOL!!!!!! :P

4.5 stars!! <— Nothing toooo angsty, but TONS of feels in ALL directions.

P.S. This book cover has SO much meaning…

DOMINANT DARK READ ROCK STAR ALERT!! Thanks to this week’s newsletter sponsor, Henriette Vesterbak is having a giveaway for the first two books in the series right here on the blog!

This ones sounds dark and absolutely tumultuous by way of downward spirals and other “loving a dominant rock star” issues. This series must be read in order and… heed the author’s trigger warnings…

About book #1:

He’s a world-famous rock star from Texas. She’s his personal assistant. And she has no clue what she’s in for.

“John is gorgeous and annoying and much too much, and I’m worried that I might be falling for him really, really hard.”

This erotic suspense novel follows reality star Heidi Johansen during the first week of her 14-day probation period as personal assistant to the rock band South Bane— 14 days she’ll never forget.

When she’s offered the job of personal assistant to the American rock band South Bane, the 22-year-old Danish fashion blogger and reality star can hardly believe her ears. A bundle of nerves, she travels across the Atlantic Ocean to Austin, Texas, to work for her biggest idol: John Monro, the band’s lead singer.

The charismatic and dominant John immediately finds himself attracted to Heidi, but she resists his advances to the best of her ability to get through her probation period in one piece. Her long-term relationship with her boyfriend back home, not to mention a specific clause in the employment contract, stand between her and her deepest desire: to give in to John. Does she dare?

READING ORDER:

BREAKING NEWS UPDATE!! Check out my new “PICK YOUR GENRE” list (or should I have called it, pick your “book-catnip” list?) ;)

What are you in the mood to read? In the mood for something specific? To make “searching” for something to read easier, I’ve compiled a list of all my blog posts “tagged” with whatever particular genre, or “feel” we’re in the mood for.

➔ https://www.maryse.net/what-are-you-in-the-mood-to-read

P.S. PLEASE NOTE: I’ve got thousands of my blog posts that I’m currently properly organizing, so these lists will update automatically, and daily! If some of the categories seem a bit sparse it’s because I’m still backtracking, and categorizing those.

HAPPY FRIDAY & HAPPY LONG WEEKEND to many of us. Extra time for book fun!!! I’ll still be in blog update/organizing mode all weekend, and of course… in reading mode to give my mind an organizing break. :D !!! In fact, I’m going in to a book right from this list (Heartbreak Warfare) and it’s by one of my favorite authors. Plus, the reactions to it are incredible so I can’t wait!!

<— P.S. That one there to the left is CALLING ME BIG TIME!!!!!! She fell in love with her perfect man, and he turns out to be her worst nightmare… OH MY!!!!

TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT WE FOUND FOR THE WEEKEND :D !!

  • Bloodstained Beauty by Ella Fields <— LIVE!!! OMG THIS ONE SOUNDS AMAZING!! She thought she met her perfect man, and he turned out to be a monster!! “…The life I’d stumbled into was beautiful, and the man I loved was perfect.
 But perfection comes at a cost, and I’d slumbered through all the alarms. Then I met my nightmare. 
The man whose bright eyes held untamed darkness. 
The man who disarmed me with his peculiar behavior. 
The man whose cold, merciless hands shook me awake. 
In an instant, questions started to dismantle my happy ever after.
..”

Stephanie: I am currently reading this and omg its so freaking good!!

Kristy: Review at the top of the list says go in blind so here we go :D

  • Heartbreak Warfare by Kate Stewart & Heather Orgeron <— SUPER-UBER ANGST ALERT!!! Recently released and we have feedback ’cause Susan LOVED it!

Jennifer: I can take having my heart ripped out; I can handle gut wrenching sobs, I can handle my heart pounding in anticipation, and all the angst you want to throw at me….however HEARTBREAK WARFARE is in a class of it’s own. The level this book did all of that to me is like no other I have ever experienced. It has not been easy, very tough to read at times and I am not even done with it. (80%) I have had to take multiple breaks from it when the hurt got to be too much. Even when I was taking these breaks I could not stop thinking about them. I am starting to think there may not be enough stars in the sky for this one.

Susan: Just finished Heartbreak Warfare today and OMGosh that book gutted me but in such a good way, I hate to cry. Hate it but these tears were so good. Loved this book and literally could not put it down until I finished it. Can not stress enough how good it was.

Jenn: Finished “Heartbreak Warfare” yesterday and the first word of the title says it all.

  • Tempted by Love: A Montana Heat Novel by Jennifer Ryan <— RECENT RELEASE SUPER-BARGAIN!!! THE DEA AGENT & HIS BEST FRIEND’S LITTLE SISTER… “...Alina’s always been steady, focused, and lived on the safe side of life. Jay is totally devoted to his dangerous job. She knows a future with him will be filled with worry that one day he won’t come home. She’s done it with her brothers. She’s not sure she can face that uncertainty with the man she loves. Yet being in his arms is a bad idea they keep repeating, again and again...”
  • Exmas by Winter Renshaw <— Winter Renshaw’s latest is LIVE!! She was so into him but then he stole her promotion… “…Refusing to work beneath him (professionally speaking and otherwise), I transferred 2,014 miles away to our Chicago division, and I’ve spent the past year trying to remember how much I hated his panty-melting smirk so I can forget how much I secretly loved the way his ocean eyes lit every time I walked into the room. But he’s just announced a last-minute site visit the week between Christmas and New Year’s, and on top of that, he’s audaciously designated me as his ‘right hand gal’ during his visit...”
  • Balance: A Forbidden Gymnastics Romance (Off Balance Book 1) by Lucia Franco <— SUPER-FORBIDDEN/SUPER-BARGAIN FOR THE FIRST TWO BOOKS ALERT!! And OMG the comments about this series!!!

Meagan: Omg I’m obsessed with this series! It’s sooooo good!

Nay: I’m halfway through, and that one scene at about 43% knocked my socks off!!!

Robyn: Good Lord, I need to thank whoever recommended Balance by Lucia Franco! This book is most definately forbidden. I wasn’t sure I was going to like it because of the drastic age difference, but something just hooked me in. I couldn’t stop reading this book. Now I’m on to book 2, Execution. These books are very well written and if you like gymnastics, it’s another plus.

  • Binding 13: Boys of Tommen #1 by Chloe Walsh <— SO MUCH LOVE for this one!! A few of us are reading this one together and some of our veterans loved it!

Jan: Binding 13′s more NA than YA. I’m not often a fan of either genre really, but there was just something about this one and I couldn’t stop reading it. The length didn’t seem to be an issue. I’m easily bored in books but I never got bored with this one.

Tasha: Binding 13 is crazy good. If only ppl understood my need to live in this book and leave. me. be. It’s giving me old school feels! And talk about fleshed our characters. Something about the way they curse makes it feel more classy than over here. Lol! The spelling too…. I tell you what though, those 800 pages really don’t feel daunting. I DO love it. I will definitely jump into the next book right away!

  • Cole by Tijan <— TIJAN SUPER-BARGAIN ALERT!!! LEADER OF THE MAFIA & she’s about to fall in love with him… “...I shouldn’t have remembered him. He was just a guy who walked through a restaurant. I didn’t know his name. We never made eye contact. There was no connection between us at all. But I could feel him. The tingle down my spine…” P.S. This one was just recommended on today’s reader question request of “criminal underworld” books!!
Tiffany: this is a good one!
  • Make Me: A Broke and Beautiful Novel by Tessa Bailey<– Tessa Bailey super-bargain alert!!Construction worker Russell Hart has been head-over-work boots for Abby Sullivan since the moment he laid eyes on her. But he knows a classy, uptown virgin like her could never be truly happy with a rough, blue-collar guy like him. If only she’d stop treating him like her personal hero—a role he craves more than oxygen—maybe he could accept it...”
  • The Music Shop: A Novel and The Solitude of Prime Numbers: A Novel <— TASHA found us goodies!! And she’s my book-twin, so… ;)
Tasha: The Music Shop: A Novel is on sale… and The Solitude of The Solitude of Prime Numbers: A Novel by Paolo Giordano is on sale… Neither are romance, but they look to be good ones. Up Jumps the Devil by Michael Poore is on sale …. I’d never heard of it before (not romance) but it sounds super intriguing.
  • Marriage Mistake by R.S. Lively <— LIVE!!! SHE DOESN’T REMEMBER GETTING MARRIED TO THIS JERK BILLIONAIRE…If only I’d listened to reason. Now, I’m knocked up and married to this domineering billionaire.*hrmph* I dunno. Why don’t I feel bad for her? ;) :P
  • Maybe Don’t Wanna (The Simple Man Series Book 2) by Lani Lynn Vale <— LANI LYNN VALE SUPER-BARGAIN ALERT!! SHE WON’T LISTEN * SHE THINKS SHE CAN SAVE HIM... “...For appearances’ sake, he plays the part. He does what people expect him to do—mostly. And at the end of each day, he goes back to his lonely apartment and wishes he was a different person. One who could fix the things he’s broken. Then Kayla Nash forces her way into his life, and the world as he knows it is irrevocably changed...”
  • Doctor Daddy: A Dark Daddy Romance (Dark Daddies Book 2) by B. B. Hamel <— STEAMY NEW RELEASE W/ A BOSSY DOMINANT!! (and the author has a warning: Doctor Daddy is an ultra hot Daddy Dom romance featuring an older man and a younger woman. It has super steamy scenes and some bad language, plus lots of fun banter. It’s only recommended for readers 18+. If you like spanking, dirty talk, silly puns, and dominant men, something tells me you’re going to love this book!”
  • Royally Yours: A Standalone Romance (Royally Series Book 4) by Emma Chase <— RECENT RELEASE & WE HAVE FEEDBACK!! JR LOVED IT!
JR: I read Royally Yours this weekend and loved it! It was sweet and sad and oh so good. This whole series is one of my all time favs.

Lene is looking for a specific book genre too. She’s looking for the bad guys. The REAL bad guys. ;)

She asks:

I need help!

I’m really in the mood for the on the edge of your seat underworld romance.. The ones where you don’t know if he’s bad for you or hands down just dangerous…

All fighters, drug lords and other criminals please get in line and bring your friends lol

Do you have any suggestions?

I sure DO Lene. I was on a HUGE bad guy kick awhile ago, and made some fun lists for us to choose from, but I’d be happy to collect some of the latest reader recommendations and add to them!

So far, here are my lists:

Anyone else?

Jenn: The first books that popped in my head when I read this question was a series I read years ago-I absolutely loved it. 5* everybook in the series. Not so much Mafia but “Secret Society”. Pieces of Lies series by Angela Richardson

Shanny: Nanny and the beast: A Billionaire Mafia Romance by Georgia Le Carre // Carter Reed, Carter Reed 2Cole by Tijan.

Jennifer: Megan March: The Anti Hero’s Collection ( Mount Trilogy). And then Savage Trilogy

Heather: Gypsy Brother Series

Amal is looking for romance with doctors. ;) Er… well… book doctors, that is! What do we actually call this genre? Medical Romance? That sounds a bit weird. Maybe… Hot Doctors? ;) LOL!!!

She asks:

Hi Maryse!

Please can you create a new book list of DOCTORS!

Been going through a hot doc phase and it’s driving me crazy that I can’t find any more books.

Please recommend a few more docs out there

Thank you!

So let’s make a list? :D

In the meantime, here are all of ➔ my blog posts tagged “Doctors.

Carol: Undeniably You. Jewel e ann.

Linda: Undeniably You by Jewel E. Ann? Loved it so much I had to have it print. Highly recommend!!!

Julie: I just finished Undeniably You and loved it! I didn’t agree with all the characters decisions but it was the perfect mix of funny, sexy and angsty. Definite book fog for a few days after.

Cheryl: I loved all Susie Tate’s book – the Broken Heart series was great and the new one that starts with Beg, Borrow or Steal is also well worth reading.

Shannon: Dear Bridget, I Want You by Penelope Ward (NOW RE-NAMED to: British Bedmate (A Series of Standalone Novels Book 5))

Trisha: …a sexy doctor with an accent. (Yes accent!)

Robyn: The Infamous series by NA Alcorn

R: Man, I feel like I’ve read more than theses!

Brenda: How about Where We Belong (A Touch of Fate) by KL Grayson.

Carol: Cruel & Beautiful (A Cruel and Beautiful Book Book 1)

Jaime: For what it’s worth. I cried my face off reading cruel and beautiful.

Mary Ann: Dr Stanton by T.L. Swan

Marit: It’s soooooo good ;) He is so hot. But he makes me so mad as well!

Jen needs our sports romance book help!! Oh oh… is she a groupie and how does he take it? Well first, we need to find the book. ;)

She asks:

Hey Maryse,

I’ve recently been on a sports romance kick and I’m trying to remember a book I read a while ago. It’s been driving me crazy for days so I’m looking for a little help :)

I’m pretty sure the main guy is a superstar college athlete (football?) and some type of story/article comes out about them dating and how she’s just interested in successful athletes. She used to date an athlete before him and he didn’t know. I think they break up because of it?

I might be mixing up books but maybe she tutored him?

Anyways….this is driving my crazy so any help would be great. But at least I’ve discovered lots of new books to read in the process :)

Jen

Anyone know it?

Jody: This is probably a long shot but… the first part makes me think of Lauren Blakely’s books. I can’t tell you a specific title, those ones haven’t really stuck with me. The tutor part made me think of Sara Ney’s The Studying Hours: How to Date a Douchebag series, but that’s wrestling. Haha if anything I probably gave you more new books to read.

If you want a hockey series… I’m reading plenty of those!
