NEW REVIEW & RECOMMENDATION: Ravenous by Marie Force (Read my Review)
HOLY FREAKING HOTNESS!! I read this book in one sitting and absolutely loved it!! It was sexy, swoony, and oh-so-very-addictive!!! I didn’t want to put it down and seriously, it was HOT HOT HOT!!! The heroine is tired of unsuccessful years of dating and just wants to start a family so she decides to have a baby herself. Just when she’s about to turn to the sperm bank, one of her closest male friends — a sinfully sexy British playboy — gives her an intriguing proposition. He’ll father a baby for her as long as they do things the old fashion way. No strings, pure sexy fun, and in the end, she gets her baby. But neither of them counted on falling in love along the way!! I would highly recommend it for fans of Fifty Shades or Crossfire!! I LOVED IT!! | Note: This is a standalone romance within the Quantum series (my reviews). You can either read the full series, or read this book separately. Either way is fine!

DETAILED LIST: NEW RELEASES
Turbulence by Whitney Gracia Williams — New Release!!
Standalone: “He and I met under a cloud of clichés: Boy meets girl. Boy charms girl…. Boy fucks girl. Our story was supposed to end right after the orgasms, right after we went our separate ways. But then we saw each other again… And neither of us could walk away. Our rules were simple. Our passion was scandalous. Our hearts were supposed to be safe… But when you find something so all-consuming—something so intoxicating and inescapable, you’ll risk everything you’ve ever had, even if you’re destined to crash and burn… This is us. This is our messed up love.”
The Darkest Link by Scarlett Cole — New Release!!
Can standalone: “When her car breaks down off the side of a lonely highway far from her home, she never expected her very own white knight to ride up on the back of a barely street-legal motorcycle…and she never expected to fall for her dark savior. After a string of failed relationships and a bruised heart, she’s not looking for forever, and the hot mechanic, with his sexy scruff and shaggy hair, is simply impossible to resist and the perfect candidate for a mind-blowingly-perfect, no-strings-attached one night stand…
Being with her is an unexpected gift, one he doesn’t feel he deserves, and their one night together has him wanting more than he should. When he surprises her at her tattoo studio, he’s in for a shock—and a fist to the face—when his past and present collide.
Stripped Down by Emma Hart — New Release!!
Standalone: What do you get when you mix a bottle of tequila, a single mom, and her sinfully sexy boss with an impulsive side? Married. You get married.
Rich. Demanding. Hot. Crazy. That was him in a nutshell. Not to mention wild, determined, dangerous, and forbidden.
He was my boss and, after a drunken moment of insanity, my new husband. An annulment was impossible… so was keeping him. I was taking my daughter and leaving, determined to give her a quieter life. But he had never taken no for an answer. And he wasn’t about to take mine.
For Better or Worse by Lauren Layne — New Release!!
Can standalone: When she finally gets promoted from assistant to actual wedding planner, she’s determined to make it… Unfortunately, her first client demands an opulent black-tie affair in five months’ time. But what she’s really losing sleep over is the live music blaring from her playboy neighbor’s apartment all night… Five years ago, he was an up-and-comer on Wall Street. But a grim cancer diagnosis made him realize there is more to life than the corner office. If only he could convince his pretty, workaholic neighbor to let loose, too. As she lets down her guard, he’s surprised when he starts falling for the sweet, vulnerable woman hiding beneath those power suits. Soon, it’s her turn to convince him to take the biggest risk of all: love.
The Debt by Karina Halle — New Release!!
Standalone: “Her life changed in an instant.
And he’s the only one who could have prevented it.
Now single and crippled from the gunshot wounds, she finds herself scared and alone. That is until a stranger enters her life. A stranger who makes her live again. He’s got a past he’s running away from [but] the more time he spends with her, the more he falls in love with her. And the more his secret threatens to tear them apart. He may have been a stranger to her. But she’s never been a stranger to him.”
Wide Open Spaces by Aurora Rose Reynolds — New Release!!

But after a bitter divorce, she hopes going home will be a fresh start for her and her ten-year-old son… He has made a lot of mistakes in his life.

Some things never change and love is one of them.
Rushing In by Lexi Ryan — New Release!!
Can standalone: “The favor seemed simple: Keep my new stepsister out of trouble for one summer. I’ve never met her, but Mom tells me she’s a quiet and artsy college student with a troubled past. When I agreed to let her stay with me, I thought it was no big deal. I expected to share my apartment with a sullen girl who’d spend hours locked in her room. I didn’t expect a walking fantasy determined to make me lose my cool. I didn’t expect a woman with secrets so dark, so deep, I’d throw away everything if it would save her from the past. This favor is turning my life upside down—and not just because her needs her ass spanked. Keep her out of trouble? She is the trouble. And I want in…”
You Are Here by S. M. Lumetta — New Release!!
She wakes up in a hospital, alone. Her family is dead and her home is gone, but she can’t remember a thing. She soon discovers, however, she can glimpse the future, and everything she sees seems to revolve around a mysterious man she’s never met… He hasn’t been a part of normal society in a decade. As a contract killer, he’s learned to deaden himself so he doesn’t have to think or feel for anything or anyone. His carefully buried memory cracks open and reminds him of what he left behind.

Trying to capture it. The world. To keep it with me awhile before it goes away.
His name is Matthew Moretti. Senior basketball star, handsome, and as far from my complicated world as he can get, he surprises me with his interest, with the way he pulls me into a world I didn’t want any part of. Until now…
