**** BRAND NEW LIST JUST POSTED ***** Hey everyone!! This is a new Weekly List for the week of Sept 25th. I know it looks similar to the old one, but if you scroll down, you’ll see it’s all new books!! 😀
WHAT I JUST FINISHED READING: Most Of All You by Mia Sheridan (Read my Review)
HOLY WOWWW!!!! *wipes happy tears* I just finished reading an early copy of this book and it was one of the most CAPTIVATING, BEAUTIFULLY written and HEART-FELT books of the year!!! I’ve loved so many of this author’s books of the years and can confidently say this is one of her BEST!!! It’s a DEEPLY HEALING, slow-burning LOVE STORY about two incredibly damaged people who fall unexpectedly into each others’ lives and help mend each other’s broken pieces. It’s a story about never giving up on the ones you love and holding on to that that love even in the darkest of times. And even though this is a completely and totally unrelated standalone novel, I can confidently say that if you LOVED Archer’s Voice, you will also FALL IN LOVE with this book!!!! It’s an absolutely GORGEOUS romance and definitely a new TOP FAVORITE that I never wanted to stop reading so be sure to pre-order a copy!!!!!
In this week’s book news though, we have several early releases that are now live such as Have My Baby by Taryn Quinn (billionaire single dad), The Charmer by Avery Flynn (romantic comedy), Rage by Janet Elizabeth Henderson (single mom/badass hero), and others listed below! And we’re getting several midnight releases tonight such as The Heiress by Cassia Leo (millionaire hero), The Learning Hours by Sara Ney (college romance), Too Beautiful to Break by Tessa Bailey (road trip), Completely by Ruthie Knox (sport romance), Stud Finder by Lauren Blakely (romantic comedy), The Blackbird Season by Kate Moretti (murder mystery), and a whole bunch more listed below, along with some later week releases such as Racer by Katy Evans (bad boy romance) and The Next Generation by S.C. Stephens (vampire romance). Scroll down to check ’em all out 😀
And finally, I don’t usually do this, but I loved last week’s top recommendations SO MUCH that I’m bring them both back to this list in case you missed them. Both Exes with Benefits by Nicole Williams (gorgeous sexy emotional reunion between an estranged married couple, my review) and also Dear Bridget, I Want You by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland (single mom and sexy doctor romance with so many feels, my review) were seriously amazing reads so if you don’t have copies yet, I highly recommend both of them as some of my favorite books of the year!! 😀

Hail No by Lani Lynn Vale — New Release!!
Can standalone: He doesn’t do anything he doesn’t want to do. At least, that is, until he’s sent to prison. The four years he’s incarcerated, he’s had no choice but to do the things he’s asked to do, when he’s asked to do them. And now, if he doesn’t, it will mean a one-way ticket straight back to hell.
Once he’s free, it takes him twenty-four hours to get his old job back, his dog at home where he belongs, and an understanding that people aren’t as forgiving as he once thought them to be. He’s just about given up hope of ever integrating back into society when a woman slams into his heart, literally and figuratively…
Racer by Katy Evans — New Release!!
Standalone: He’s the fastest, fiercest driver around.
Scouting new talent brings me to his doorstep… but his smile sends me to my knees. He’s not the kind of man a girl like me falls for. He’s secretive, reckless, elusive. This is our last chance to win, and he is our only hope. I’m supposed to watch him — make sure he doesn’t get into trouble. But it’s an impossible task. And now the one in heart wrenching, toe-curling, soul-crushing trouble is me. Because when your heart belongs to someone, their truths become your own, and their secrets become your salvation…or your curse. He says he wants me. He says I’m the One. But he also thinks he’ll break my heart, one piece at a time until it’s gone.
The Next Generation by S.C. Stephens — New Release!!

He desperately wishes he could sever the empathic bond he has with his sister. While it was fun to experience each other’s emotions when they were kids, now that he finds himself pining for a girl he can’t have, sharing his feelings is the last thing he wants to do…
