Two New Book Releases & What I Am Currently Reading…

by Maryse on August 24, 2012 · 28 comments

in News, What I am reading today

TWO BIG releases (at least for me) because both of these books look right up my alley! THESE are what I am reading this weekend! Where’s my DO NOT DISTURB sign? Can I call in sick today? *sigh* *grumbles again* stupid responsibilities….

Who’s in the mood for…:

If I were You (Inside Out Trilogy) by Lisa Renee Jones
Shades of Grey meets Basic Instinct
He is rich and famous, and dark in ways I shouldn’t find intriguing, but I do. I so do. I don’t understand why his dark side appeals to me, but the attraction between us is rich with velvety promises of satisfaction. Chris is dark, and so are his desires, but I cannot turn away. He is damaged beneath his confident good looks and need for control, and in some way, I feel he needs me. I need him.

Sidenote from Maryse —-> I’m already feeling exhilarated!!!


The Mighty Storm by Samantha Towle <—– IT’S LIVE on Amazon right now!!!

Rock Star book!!!
It’s been twelve years since Tru Bennett last saw Jake Wethers, her former best friend and boy she once loved.

Jake Wethers, sexy, tattooed and deliciously bad lead singer, and brains behind The Mighty Storm, one of biggest bands in the world, left Tru with a broken heart when he moved from England to America with his family when they were both fourteen.

Sent to interview Jake for her music column by the magazine she works for, they are both unprepared for the sparks that fly the instant they reconnect. Only, there’s a complication to their instant feelings for one another – Will, Tru’s boyfriend of two years.

Then Jake makes Tru a job offer she can’t refuse – travelling the world with him and his band…

Sidenote from Maryse —> oooooh it sounds like it’s gonna hurt!!! Bring on the angst!!!

Both books sounds great, a Do Not Disturb sign might be a good idea. ;)

Missy R. August 24, 2012 at 12:35 PM

Hmmmm. Samantha Towle’s website says August 25. :(

Maryse August 24, 2012 at 12:38 PM

Yep there were some technical issues so it has been moved from today as a release day, to tomorrow…

Well, I do have that sexy Lisa Renee Jones book to enjoy!! We’re still good!

Missy R. August 24, 2012 at 12:43 PM

Oh! I wrote too soon. ;) I just saw Samantha Towle’s comment on your Facebook page, saying she will let us know the second it goes live. :) ))

Missy R. August 24, 2012 at 12:46 PM

Yes, I bought If I Were You at 3am-right when it went live on Amazon (in my time zone)! It will definitely hold us over in the meantime!

Kirsten August 24, 2012 at 5:06 PM

Maryse I have to second Lucy’s comment on If I Were You. You will not want to put it down, and now I am anxious for the next books. I should have waited for all 3 before I started the first. I HATE waiting. :(

Carie August 24, 2012 at 5:24 PM

Maryse August 24, 2012 at 6:25 PM

Lisa August 24, 2012 at 8:13 PM

Lise August 25, 2012 at 2:17 PM

If I Were You was a one-sit-wonder book of smoking hot intensity. Whew… great way to spend a Saturday morning. This series is off to a great start!

Lisa August 25, 2012 at 4:00 PM

Thank you so much for mentioning IF I WERE YOU!

Joy August 25, 2012 at 4:38 PM

Omg….both books were freaking fantastic! The cliffhanger in If I Were You is sooooo good. Her second book comes out Feb 2013 and the third is out in May.
Samantha Towle did an awesome job on TMS. This book had me on pins and needles. She needs to write more novels like this! One word for both books:

Debbie August 26, 2012 at 10:36 AM

Wow! You made The Mighty Storm seem so deliciously tear-worthy, I had to get it quick, fast and in a hurry (love a kindle). Tissues are handy and I’ve locked myself in the bedroom. (No TV’s or husbands to interrupt a good cry) Thanks a bunch

CATRINA August 28, 2012 at 9:56 AM
