And this story begins at the point where the hero realizes this is his last chance to make things right and he does absolutely everything in his power to win back the heart of the only woman he’s ever loved. AHHHHH!!! I LOVED IT!!! I’m going to be honest, I was frustrated with the first half of the book, but I absolutely LOOOOOOOOVED the second half!!! It was SWOOOOOONY and had SO MANY FEEEEELS!!! My heart never stopped racing and I read as fast as I could!!! It was so GORGEOUS!!! Definitely new FAVORITE!!!! Be sure to grab a copy! It’s now live!
TOP FAVORITE (MIDNIGHT): The Hard Truth About Sunshine by Sawyer Bennett (My Review)
HOLY WOW. I mean WOW!!!!! This was one of the most HEART-FELT and POIGNANT books I’ve experienced in a long time. It was DEEP and MEANINGFUL. It made me laugh, cry, and FEEL for these characters. For those of you who’ve read this author before, this is an entirely NEW and DIFFERENT side to her writing and I LOVED IT! I knew from reading the blurb that this would be a very UNIQUE story and I didn’t know what to expect when I first started it but from the very first page, I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN. I was truly captivated by this story that was simultaneous heart-breaking and heart-warming. It was RAW. HONEST. PAINFUL. BEAUTIFUL. An instant favorite and top recommendation for everyone!!! It’s a standalone and it’ll be going live at midnight (YES!! Almost here!) so be sure to grab a copy!
TOP FAVORITE (MIDNIGHT): The Night Mark: A Novel by Tiffany Reisz (Read my Review)
OMG!!!! This was such a UNIQUE and HEART-WARMING novel!!! It was a love story unlike any other I’ve read! It spanned ages and time and really opened my heart and mind to possibilities I couldn’t even imagine. It’s technically a time-travel romance (similar to Outlander in ways) except here the heroine is transported back to 1921 where her life is saved by a man who looks and acts shockingly identical to her present day, beloved late husband. And what unfolds is a BEAUTIFUL mystery and romance that filled my heart with hope, happiness, and even brought me to tears!!! I loved the symbolism and how REAL the story felt. This would make an AMAZING movie!!! If you’re looking for a genuinely DIFFERENT ROMANCE with FANTASTIC WRITING, definitely grab a copy!! It’s going live at midnight!

DETAILED LIST: NEW RELEASES
Say I’m Yours by Corinne Michaels — New Release!!
TOP FAVORITE! standalone: I spent twenty years waiting for Trent Hennington to open his eyes and see me. But it was all for nothing. He chose to keep himself guarded and let me walk away, proving that my time and efforts were wasted. I’m done being invisible. It’s time to move on. A single dance sets my new reality into motion, and I welcome it. After all, he’s perfect. He’s kind, sexy, and attentive―everything a girl could want.
I thought I got it right this time. That my heart could mend, and I would be happy. Apparently, some things really are just too hard to walk away from.
Dirty Filthy Rich Men by Laurelin Paige — New Release!!
Duet: When I met him, I knew he was rich. I didn’t know he was filthy. Truth be told, I was only trying to get his best friend to notice me. I knew poor scholarship girls like me didn’t stand a chance against guys like them, but I was in love with his world, their world, of parties and sex and power. I knew what I wanted—until one night, their world tried to bite me back and he saved me. He saved me, and then he finally noticed me, and I finally learned what it was to be in their world. And then what it was like to lose it.
Ten years later, I’ve found my way back. Back to their world. Back to him. This time, I’m ready. I’ve been down this road before, and I know all the dirty, filthy ways he will try and wreck me. But it’s hard to resist. Especially when I know how much I’ll like it.
Hot for the Fireman by Gina L. Maxwell — New Release!!
Can standalone: Of all the men to walk into her office, why did it have to be him?
Her one-night stand isn’t playing by the rules of just. One. Night.
She’s had her heart broken in the past, and no way is she going there again. And now he’s blackmailing her into three dates? Well, if that’s what it takes to make him see a different therapist, fine. She can handle it. So what if the chemistry between them is combustible? She’s a professional, damn it. She’ll date him. But it won’t end in the fun he expects. It’s time to see how much heat this fireman can take…
Lei’d with Cupcakes by Bethany Lopez — New Release!!
Everybody dreams of a Hawaiian Vacation… They sell you on the drinks with little umbrella’s, dolphin watching, and long walks on the beach. Which probably happens, if you’re that lucky schmuck living out your dream with your destination wedding, but if you’re a fish out of water like me, there’s no time for relaxing because trouble is never far behind. Instead of cocktails, I ended up dealing with the seedy underbelly of The Big Island. And, I didn’t see one damn dolphin while undercover on a boat which was spilling over with drug dealers…
WARNING: THIS BOOK CONTAINS FOUL LANGUAGE, SEX, SOME VIOLENCE, AND SHENANIGANS. IF NONE OF THAT BOTHERS YOU, GRAB A CUPCAKE AND READ ON!
Her Knight to Remember by Jill Shalvis — New Release!!
Standalone re-release: Some people have no gratitude! When Princess Andrea Brunner saves Kyle Moore from a bad guy, she expects a little appreciation. Instead, the arrogant man insists that he saved her! Impossible! Annie has always been the rescuer.
