TOP RECOMMENDATION (MIDNIGHT RELEASE): Full Tilt by Emma Scott (Read my Review)
*** CRYING *** Oh WOW!!!! This was an absolutely GORGEOUS book!!! My gosh, those FEELS were epic! Honestly, I thought I was handling my emotions pretty well for most of the book, but then this one sentence just did me right in and the TEARS started flowing. The writing was captivating, the romance was heart-breakingly, achingly beautiful, and I absolutely LOVED the story! I really love finding books that can deliver this kind of raw, emotional intensity. It’s an unconventional love story and I would most highly recommended it for fans of Me Before You. It has ALL THE FEELS!! And luckily, it releases at midnight so be sure to pre-order!!

RECENT RECOMMENDATION: Say You’ll Stay by Corinne Michaels (Read my Review)
SQUEEEEEEE!!!!!! OMG. OMG!!!! This was one of the SWOONIEST second chance romances I’ve ever read!!! The hero and heroine had fallen in love as teens and were reunited after seventeen years apart! It had all the emotional intensity of a passionately reunited love, mixed in with deep feels that made me tear up, and even hilarious moments that made me laugh out loud too. It was SEXY, ADDICTIVE, and totally unputdownable!! I also absolutely LOVED that this couple genuinely TALKED through their issues. Everything they went though, even their mistakes, made SENSE and their story was such a joy to read. Oh, and THE EPILOGUE WAS PERFECT!!!!!!

Pieces by Toni Aleo — New Release!!
“Sure, I live in a mansion and money isn’t an object, but that doesn’t matter because I can’t leave. I have a guard who follows me around 24/7… I’m a walking science experiment. I hate it. I hate my life here.
But then he comes along. He’s just some vampire…or so I thought.
But you’ll have to read my story to find out what I mean. To know my secrets. Until then, though, allow me to introduce myself… My name is Rebekah von Stein. And I’m a descendant of Dr. Frankenstein. Welcome to the Works.”
Epic Lies by Trudy Stiles — New Release!!
Can standalone: “He has always been the one to keep it all together.

Stand by T Gephart — New Release!!
Can standalone: He’s a rock star and his new neighbor is the girl he still loves from his past! — “While she had enjoyed being the sometimes girlfriend of the hot bass player for [a famous band], she knew it would never be more than a casual fling. He was destined for greatness, and she cared too much to hold him back. So, before she lost her heart, she said goodbye, moved to Manhattan and left her party-girl days in the past—along with him… It wasn’t his new huge penthouse apartment that got him excited; it was his new neighbor. The one girl he regretted letting go. He wanted her back and would do anything to make it happen. Hopefully it wasn’t too late.”
After We Break by Katy Regnery — New Release!!
Standalone: “She was the girl. The only girl I ever wanted. The only girl I ever loved. The only girl I could ever love. And I killed it. I destroyed it. I threw her love away… For nine years, I’ve kept the memory of her locked in the deepest corner of my heart… all the while hating myself for what I did to her. To us. Now, without warning, she’s walked back into my life. I’m covered in tats. She’s covered in Polo. I write heavy metal songs. She writes chick-lit. My eyes are angry. Her eyes are sad. I still long for her with every fiber of my being. But I have no idea if she feels the same. I guess it’s time to find out.”

Full Tilt by Emma Scott — Live at midnight!!
TOP FAVORITE: “I would love you forever, if I only had the chance…”
She has always lived life on the edge. And now, as lead guitarist for a hot up-and-coming band, she is poised at the brink of fame and fortune. A wrecked concert in Las Vegas threatens to ruin her career entirely. She wakes up with the hangover from hell and no memory of the night before, or how she ended up on her limo driver’s couch…
He’s running out of time. He knows his situation is hopeless, and he’s vowed to make the most of the handful of months he has left to him. His plans do not include falling in love with a wild, tempestuous rock musician who wound up passed out on his couch.
He sees that she’s on a path to self-destruction. He lets her crash with him for a few days to dry out and get her head on straight.

Something deep and pure and life-changing… that they both know will shatter in the end no matter how hard they try to hold on to it.”
Up in Flames by Abbi Glines — Live at midnight!!
Rosemary Beach series: “Spoiled. Selfish. Rich girl. Villain. Slut. She has been called every vile name under the hot summer sun.

Though she doesn’t know much about the sweet-talking Texan, and though it’s clear he doesn’t want to be exclusive, dating him beats hanging out with vapid socialites or watching Netflix alone at home. For a while, she deals with his playboy ways, but after he burns her one too many times, she takes off for an impromptu wild weekend in Vegas. There, she meets a darkly seductive and oh-so-dangerous businessman who knows exactly how to handle her…”

When a chance roadside encounter brings him into her life, she isn’t fooled by his bad attitude: All bark and no bite, he’s hiding a wounded heart beneath that gruff demeanor. And she wants to be the one to kiss it all better. Soon they both find that a dose of passion is potent medicine. But when a hidden enemy lashes out at her, he steps up to do what he does best: put his body on the line in the name of love.”
