SALES, NEW RELEASES, RECOMMENDATIONS, & PRE-ORDERS — Week of July 28, 2015

UPDATE: NEW BOOKS JUST ADDED!! I’ve posted the latest weekly list of brand new releases here for you to check out and I’ve included my latest favorites too! ENJOY and HAPPY READING! 😀

 
THE PAPER SWAN smHoly WOW!!! I just finished The Paper Swan by Leylah Attar LOVE LOVE LOOOOVED it!! This is one of those stories that you just need to have TRUST with. Trust the author and trust me when I say that its better not to know ANYTHING about this story before you start it. I’m almost certain that any romance reader will love this and not have any problem with any of it’s content. It’s a stunningly written UNIQUE romance and despite its intense and sometimes gritty twists and turns, it was one of the sweetest and most BEAUTIFUL love stories I’ve ever read. Fierce, powerful, and absolutely breathtaking. — It’ll be out on Tuesday for ONLY $0.99!! Pre-order your copy now! It’s a standalone romance with NO cheating, NO triangle, and a HEA!! I promise, cross my heart, pink swear!! — “It’s not over… It never has been,” he said. “Whether you say yes or no, you will always be my forever.” (Read my Review)

I also read The Piano Man Project by Kat French and it was so much FUN!!! 😀 It kinda waffled back and forth between an outrageously HILARIOUS laugh-out-loud romantic comedy, and just a light, easy beach read. The hero was this grumpy recluse (with a secret!!) who moved in next door to the heroine and, despite her friends’ best efforts to set her up with a bunch of (really funny) blind dates, she was drawn to the moody, grouchy-but-gorgeous guy who seemed determined to make her hate him. It was a total feel-good book (half romance, half chick-lit) with a dash of sexy. 4 stars!! (Read my Review)

Finally, if you’re curious about how I rate books or choose which books to review, go here.

*** LATEST TOP FAVORITE ***

 

Vanguard by CJ Markusfeld (Read my Review)

OMG. OMG. OMG!!!! I absolutely loooooooooooooved this gorgeous book!!!!!! From the moment I read the prologue, I was hooked and could NOT put it down even for a single minute!! I cried, laughed, swooned, was totally overwhelmed with emotion, and even had to take little “breathers” before turning the page because it could get literally that intense!!! It had ALL THE FEELS. This story was 100% unique and unlike any other I’ve ever read. It’s a modern-day wartime love story with fantastic writing, strong characters, a gripping and emotional tale, and an epic romance that kept my heart racing from start to finish. This was smart, intelligent romance. Total BOOK HEAVEN!! And I’d recommend it for anyone who loved The Bronze Horseman (yup, I went there!!) It’s quite outside-the-box, but if you love “different” love stories, definitely try this!!

*** THIS WEEK’S NEW RELEASES ***

 

The Piano Man Project by Kat FrenchNew Release!!

OMG!!! I love the sound of this romantic comedy!!! It’s described as “hilarious, feel-good, and sexy” and is a standalone. — The heroine “has a problem. She needs a man – a caring, intelligent, funny man… Luckily her new neighbour – a moody, antisocial, ex-chef – fails on almost every count. Even though the chemistry between them is electric, he’s obviously wrong for her in every way. But when she discovers the devastating reason for his moods she decides to give him another chance. And discovers that the best songs aren’t always in tune…”

 

47 Things by Lilliana AndersonNew Release!!

WOAH!!! This blurb caught my eye!!! Sounds intense and emotional!
“What’s your name, sweetheart?”…. That was the first thing. I wasn’t his sweetheart, and he should have already known my name… He was wonderful and complicated, and I’d spent my life trying to hate him for being the golden boy who had everything so easy. However, as with all things, he wasn’t the person he appeared to be from the outside, and once I saw him – the real him – I fell, and I don’t think I ever got back up… There would be a total of forty-seven things that sucked me into his life then forced me away. Forty-seven things that ruined me forever. Forty-seven was never going to be enough. There was no number great enough…

 

Racing The Sun by Karina HalleNew Release!!

Bad boy race car driver alert!! This can be read as a standalone (all the books in this series can) and I love the sound of it!!

It’s about a young woman who becomes a nanny abroad and falls for the brooding bad-boy older brother of the two children she’s looking after! He’s a mysterious, darkly handsome, ex-motorcycle racer who tests her patience and will at every turn—not to mention her hormones…

 

The Bourbon Kings by JR WardNew Release!!

I’m a huge fan of this author’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series. This is the first book in her brand new series. I can’t wait to try this too! — The story is about a wealthy, privileged family who is compromised by secrets, deceit, and scandal…. The heroine works as the estate’s head gardener but falls in love with the prodigal son of the dynasty. She never intended to and their bitter breakup only served to prove her instincts were right. Now, after two years of staying away, he is finally coming home again, and he is bringing the past with him…

 

Tangled Bond by Emma HartNew Release!!

Romantic suspense fans, this is the fun & sexy sequel to Twisted Bond. There is NO cliffhanger, but they must be read in order. The heroine is a private investigator who finds a body in a dumpster… “My connection to the victim is entirely coincidental. Until I’m hired by her husband to investigate her murder and shoved into the path of a Detective who is my nemesis, a persistent pain in my ass, and one hell of a sexy son of a bitch… Shame he still holds a grudge from that time I shot him in the foot twelve years ago, or we could have something…”

 

Nine Minutes & Out Of Time by Beth Flynn

Biker fans!!!! Out Of Time, the highly-anticipated sequel to Nine Minutes is now live!!! I read the first book last year and was completely blown away!! It was a dark, gritty, dangerous, intense, shocking, addictive, raw, and captivating page-turner. A complex, multi-layered story with outstanding writing and unexpected twists and turns!! I could not put it down for even a minute!! If you’re looking for a well-written, intense, and utterly unputdownable book with a completely unique and original plot, and a surprising love story that’ll captivate you from the very first page, then try it!!! And, if you’ve already read it, grab the sequel now!! (Note: these must be read in order)

 

The Secret Sister by Brenda NovakNew Release!!

A second chance romance/family mystery standalone! — “She finds herself living next door to someone she’d prefer to avoid—the wild, reckless boy to whom she lost her virginity at sixteen. He’s back, and to her surprise, he’s raising a young daughter alone. She’s still attracted to him, but her heart’s too broken to risk… Then something disturbing happens. She discovers a box of photographs that evoke distant memories of a little girl, a child her brother remembers, too. She believes the girl must’ve been their sister, but their mother claims there was no sister. She’s convinced that child existed. So where is she now?”

 

Before & After by Nazarea AndrewsNew Release!!

This went live early!
“A boy from the wrong side of the tracks, covered in ink and crooning in a bar is the last person a straight laced girl with a art major should fall for… They fell in love in college. A boy with a guitar, and a poet’s heart, and a girl with freckles dusted over her nose, a perfect fucking fairy tale. But what happens when the fairy tale doesn’t fall apart… but is forgotten?”

 

All We Have Is Now by Lisa SchroederNew Release!!

This sounds really different!! It’s a standalone. — “What do you do with your last day on earth? There are 27 hours and fifteen minutes left until an asteroid strikes North America, and, for [the heroine] and everyone else who didn’t leave, the world will end… The city’s quieter now that most people are gone, and no one seems to know what to do as the end approaches. But then they meet a guy, who tells them that he has been granting people’s wishes. He gave his car away so a woman could take her son to see the ocean for the first time, and he gives them all the money he has. Suddenly this last day seems full of possibility. They can grant a lot of wishes in 27 hours — maybe even their own…”

 

Wicked Fall by Sawyer BennettNew Release!!

Erotic romance fans, check this out! The hero is a secy multi-millionaire rancher who has opened a “sinfully erotic and private sex club” that only a priviledged few people know about. The heroine just returned to her hometown “and is looking forward to starting her life over again [and] she’s managed to put herself right in his line of sight… the man who she foolishly offered up her virginity to years ago and was flatly turned down. Now he’s seeing that she is all grown up and has a kinky side to her that leaves him as confused as it does turned on…”

 

The One That I Want by Marilyn BrantNew Release!!

“The summer after her beloved husband died in a car accident, she’s still picking up the pieces of her life and trying to help her daughter adjust to this difficult new reality… After her best friend talks her into finally going out on the town again, she finds herself stunned to be the object of interest of several different men: The boy who’d broken her heart back in high school. The college ex she’d left behind. And most surprising of all, the movie actor she’d always fantasized about but had never met in person…until now. Sometimes the person you think will be best for you isn’t the one you really want…”

 

Every Last Breath by Jennifer L ArmentroutNew Release!!

PNR love triangle fans, this is the third Dark Elements series book!
Every choice has consequences—but seventeen-year-old Layla faces tougher choices than most. Light or darkness. Wickedly sexy demon prince Roth, or Zayne, the gorgeous, protective Warden she never thought could be hers. Hardest of all, Layla has to decide which side of herself to trust… To keep Sam from a fate much, much worse than death, Layla must strike a deal with the enemy while saving her city—and her race—from destruction.

 

The Hotter You Burn by Gena ShowalterNew Release!!

This features “a troubled playboy and the woman he can’t resist…”
The hero “has never been with the same woman twice, and vows he never will… The heroine is the most hated girl in town — penniless, jobless and homeless. When she sneaks into his home for food, she’s shocked by his early return… and her immediate, sizzling and intense attraction to him. For the first time in his life, he can’t get a woman out of his mind. All too soon, friendship blooms into obsession and he’ll have to break her heart…or surrender his own.”

 

Frisk Me by Lauren LayneNew Release!!

The hero is a cop and “no matter how many times he tells reporters he was just doing his job, they’re determined to make him into NYC’s newest hero. Coming from a long line of NYPD’s finest, he knows that being a cop has nothing to do with headlines and viral videos, and he’s more than ready to get back to life away from the cameras-until he meets the gorgeous but jaded journalist assigned to film a TV special on him… She’s determined to keep things strictly professional, but the more time she spends around him, even she has to admit there’s something about a man in uniform… and she can’t wait to get him out of his.”

 

Servicing The Target by Cherise SinclairNew Release!!

This is the latest erotic BDSM romance in the Masters of the Shadowlands series.
A discharged Army Ranger, Ben considers his job as a BDSM club security guard to be an excellent hobby. He’s never been tempted to join in. But everything changes when the notorious Mistress Anne inadvertently reveals the caring heart concealed beneath her Domme armor… Now, he’s set his sights on the beautiful Shadowlands Mistress. Maybe he’d considered himself vanilla, but she can put her stiletto on his chest any day, any time.

 

Bound To Darkness by Lara AdrianNew Release!!

Paranormal romance fans! This is the latest Midnight Series series book!

Carys Chase is accustomed to making her own rules and letting her heart lead the way—no matter what anyone else has to say about it. A rare Breed female and a daywalker as well, headstrong, beautiful Carys is one of the most powerful of her kind. She lives passionately and loves without limits, especially when it comes to the lethal cage-fighting Breed warrior called Rune.

*** JUST FINISHED READING THIS!!! ***

 

November 9 by Colleen Hoover

WOWWWWWWWW!!!! I finished reading a (very) early copy of this STUNNING book. It blew me away!!! I read it in one sitting with my heart racing the whole time!! The story was SO unique and unexpected that it took me completely by surprise over and over again!! I swooned, I fell in love, my heart was broken, and then healed again. And THE TWIST!!!!! Holy hell, that twist!!! Total shocker but I LOVED the direction it spun the story in. This book was perfect from cover to cover and definitely one of the BEST BOOKS of the year!! It’s a standalone and just trust me and pre-order a copy!! You’ll want to read this one the MOMENT it’s released!!!

Standalone contemporary romance (not part of a series). 5 stars!

Fallon meets Ben, an aspiring novelist, the day before her scheduled cross-country move. Their untimely attraction leads them to spend Fallon’s last day in L.A. together, and her eventful life becomes the creative inspiration Ben has always sought for his novel. Over time and amidst the various relationships and tribulations of their own separate lives, they continue to meet on the same date every year. Until one day Fallon becomes unsure if Ben has been telling her the truth or fabricating a perfect reality for the sake of the ultimate plot twist…

*** MORE RECENT RECOMMENDATIONS ***

 

The Strongest Steel by Scarlett Cole (Read my Review)

TATTOOED HERO FANS!!! I recently finished this great new book!! The sexy, tattooed hero had me swooooooooning!!! The heroine had survived an attack that left her back covered in scars and the hero was a talented tattoo artist whose specialty was inking over scars. When she shows up at his studio, he cant turn her down, and designs the perfect tattoo while fighting his intense feelings for her that grow with each tattooing session… This story was swoony, heart-meltingly romantic, a little suspenseful (her ex was a real piece of work), a lot sexy… with a hot, protective Alpha male hero!! (It’s a standalone)

 

Maybe In Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid (Read my Review)

SQUEEEEEE!!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVED this so freaking much!!! My gosh, that last 10% was seriously loaded with feels!! This was honestly one of the BEST BOOKS I’ve read this year. The story was unlike any other I’ve read, the writing was AMAZING, and it kept me glued to the page. It was totally unconventional and gave such a UNIQUE perspective on finding your soul mate and one true love. I cried, I laughed, my heart felt like it was bursting with emotions. I LOVED IT!!! 5++ STARS!!! — “I still love you,” he says. “I’ve always loved you. I might never stop.”

 

Ride Steady by Kristen Ashley (My Review)

Bad boy biker alert!! I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! 5 STARS!! (Chaos series)

“Once upon a time, she believed in happy endings. Money, marriage, motherhood: everything came easy… Now a struggling, single mom and stranded by a flat tire pondering her mistakes, when a vaguely familiar knight rides to her rescue on a ton of horsepower… In high school, he was a bad boy loner who put her on a pedestal… Today, he’s a hard-bodied biker, and it’s clear she’s falling fast.”

 

The Man I Love by Suanne Laqueur (Read my Review)

WOW WOW WOW!!! I recently read this and LOVED it!! The WRITING was truly exquisite! It was a very slow-building, detailed story, but one where EVERY detail matters. Everything was connected and had DEPTH. It was vivid and powerful and completely UNIQUE. It told a love story that spanned 10-15 years, but didn’t follow ANY rules. Normally that would be scary to me but the way that everything was portrayed made me really *get* where these characters came from. And I was honestly blown away by how much I FELT and how BEAUTIFULLY it was written. It’s like I lived the story with them. It just felt REAL. Highly recommended!

 

Never Let You Go by Katy Regnery (Read my Review)

HOLY HELL!!! I read reading this in one non-stop sitting because I could NOT put it down. I mean seriously… THE ANGST!!!!! Gah. *clutches heart* It’ll be a while before my heart rate to go back to normal, but WOW, it was unputdownable!!! It felt like I barely blinked or stopped to breathe because I was flipping the pages so fast…… It was sweet and romantic, heart-breaking and painful, angsty as all freaking hell, and really just a gorgeous story of UNDYING LOVE!!! The story was unique and it’s a complete standalone so if you’re looking for a new read, try this!

 

Rush by Emma Scott (Read my Review)

This was a really touching story! The first few chapters were a little slow but once they officially met, I was hooked. If you loved the “feeling” of Me Before You (minus the ugly-crying), then definitely try this! — The hero used to be a pro extreme sports athlete who was blinded and severely injured in a cliff diving accident. With his life and dreams shattered, he was left bitter and angry and shut himself away the world until the heroine arrived to work for him as a live-in assistant. She was a prodigy musician who’d suffering her own loss as well but they began to help each other heal as they fell unexpectedly in love…

 

King by T.M. Frazier (Read my Review)

Holy wow, I totally LOVED this book!! Dark and gritty, sweet and sexy, raw and shocking, and utterly addictive, with an unapologetic, badass Alpha male hero and unexpected twists that I never saw coming!! I highly recommend it!!
Homeless. Hungry. Desperate. Doe has no memories of who she is or where she comes from…A notorious career criminal just released from prison, King is someone you don’t want to cross. When they come crashing together, they will have to learn that sometimes in order to hold on, you have to first let go.

 

A Pound of Flesh by Sophie Jackson (Read my Review)

SQUEEEEEEE!!!!! I absolutely LOOOOOOOVED this book!!! If you love SEXY BAD BOY heroes and unique love stories, then you have to try this!!!! The thrill of their forbidden romance kept my heart RACING the whole way through. I swooned over their love for each other, and really appreciated the way there was no ‘stupid’ drama. And now I just can’t stop smiling because the story was just so freaking GOOD!!!! I adored it!!! It’s about a “strong-minded prison tutor who discovers that her sexy bad-boy student is far more than he appears to be…”

Book Review — The Paper Swan by Leylah Attar

Book Review — The Paper Swan by Leylah Attar

“You will always be my forever.”

Fierce, powerful, and absolutely breathtaking, this beautifully-written book will sweep you away in an epic love story that spans years and lasts a lifetime. The Paper Swan is a must-read for any romance readers who are searching for a completely unique story that’ll captivate you from start to finish. While the twists and turns are intense, gritty, and sometimes even dark, this was actually one of the sweetest and most beautiful love stories I’ve ever read. I loved every word and highly recommend it!

I want to be very clear that this is a standalone romance with no love triangle. It’s also not tragic (really, the ending is gorgeous) so you do not have to worry about anything. Yes, it’s a truly crazy ride, but I’m almost certain that any romance reader will love this and not have any problem with any of it’s content.

This is one of those stories that you just need to have TRUST with. Trust the author and trust me when I say that its better not to know anything about this story before you start it other than the blurb…

They say it takes 21 days to form a habit. They lie. For 21 days she held on. But on Day 22, she would have given anything for the sweet slumber of death. Because on Day 22, she realizes that her only way out means certain death for one of the two men she loves.

Don’t freak out! Remember: there’s no triangle and it’s not tragic. I know there are a bunch of you right now sitting here reading this and eyeing this blurb warily but just trust me, I get it. The very first thing I did when I saw it was go out and make sure there was no triangle/cheating/death before I even considered reading the book, and even though the blurb is accurate, it’s also not what you think. I promise, cross my heart, and pinky swear that it’s not going to devastate you. It’s just a really unique love story, but it has everything that would make a romance fan happy even though it’s edgy and has darker moments. You guys know that I always warn you whenever there’s anything I think you should know beforehand but this is one of those times when really, you’ll be fine. I wouldn’t say that unless I meant it. Just dive in!  

I wished I could see myself through his eyes.
Then again, he never looked at me with his eyes.
He looked at me with his soul.

When you start the book, holy hell, the prologue just throws you right into the story! It’s immediately captivating because you’re suddenly in this intense, life-threatening situation with the heroine and, just like her, you have absolutely no idea why it’s happening, or what is going to happen next. There are so many questions and so many possibly directions for the story to take so it just begs you to turn the page!

I loved that the heroine was strong, smart, and capable. She was relatable, down-to-earth, and just felt very much like a real person I’d love to get to know. And I totally fell for the hero (or, you could really say anti-hero). This guy had been dealt a truly unfortunate hand of cards and his life lead him down a dangerous and destructive path, but with the way it was written, you were shown why he’d become that man.  At what point does a person bear too much pain? At what point does it change them? I loved the complexity of his character and the range of emotion his story drew out of me over the course of this book.

This is a story that keeps you guessing the whole way through and toys with your heart while unraveling an intricate tale of passion, vengeance, redemption, sacrifice, acceptance, forgiveness, and the purest form of love, where the lines between good and bad are often blurred, and with writing so vivid that you feel like you’re experiencing the story alongside the characters. It begins in childhood and tells the story of how a boy turns into a monster and loses himself while trying to save the one he loves most, but how that monster can too find love because even though he’s no longer that boy, a part of him still remembers who he was and who he loved. It’s filled with emotion, intrigue, suspense and passion. I couldn’t put it down!

That’s honestly as much as I want to say about the story. I feel very strongly that you should just go into this book blind. I can technically categorize the type of romance but I want you to be as surprised and thrilled as I was while you read. Despite this story’s gritty and sometimes even violent twists and turns, this was honestly turned out to be one of the heart-warming love stories I’ve read. Leylah Attar’s stunning writing wraps you up in this epic journey and sweeps you away. This book had it all — beautiful writing, beautiful story, beautiful cover. It’s one of my top favorites of this year and a must-read recommendation!!

“It’s not over, you know. It never has been,” he said.
“Whether you say yes or no, you will always be my forever.”

Rating 5 stars! Standalone contemporary romance.

Note: This is releasing tomorrow at midnight so pre-order now if you want it as soon as it’s live! It’s only $0.99 for a limited time. And again… there’s NO cheating, NO triangle, and it’s NOT tragic. I promise.

Book Review — The Piano Man Project by Kat French

Book Review — The Piano Man Project by Kat French

Finding love isn’t always black and white…

Teehee!!! This was such a delightfully fun book!! I’d best describe it as a cross between an outrageously HILARIOUS laugh-out-loud romantic comedy, and just a really light-hearted, easy beach read. The hero was this grumpy recluse (with a secret!!) who moved in next door to the heroine and, despite her friends’ best efforts to set her up with a bunch of (really funny) blind dates, she kept being drawn back to the moody, grouchy-but-gorgeous guy who seemed determined to make her hate him. It was a total feel-good book (half romance, half chick-lit) with a dash of sexy. Before anything, I’ll share the blurb with you:

You: kind, piano-playing sex god
Me: hopelessly romantic charity shop manager

Honeysuckle Jones has a problem, and her best friends Nell and Tash are on a mission to help her solve it. She needs a man – a caring, intelligent, funny man. But most importantly, a man who’s good with his hands…

Luckily Honey’s new neighbour – moody, antisocial ex-chef Hal – fails on almost every count. Even though the chemistry between them is electric, he’s obviously wrong for her in every way.

But when Honey discovers the devastating reason for his moods she decides to give him another chance. And discovers that the best songs aren’t always in tune…

And, if you want a taste of the writing, here are literally the first lines of the book:

“Don’t you think there’s something sad about buying yourself a new vibrator for Valentine’s Day?” Honey picked up a lurid pink model and eyed it with distaste.

“Why?” Tash laughed. “My last one was the best boyfriend I ever had. When it gave out I buried it in the back garden and planted a phallic cactus over it as tribute.”

“How did you break it, anyways?” Honey frowned at the hunk of neon plastic in her hand. It looked pretty indestructible.

“Overuse, probably.”

That sold me on the book!! 😀

Hal, the hero, was such a great character. He was grouchy, cantankerous, reclusive, moody, objectionable, downright rude, but his secret made him quite vulnerable and my heart broke for his situation. Despite his total lack of social skills, he and Honey had this sparkling romantic tension that neither of them could deny existed. And, when not a single one of her blind dates panned out (despite the very best efforts of her overly eager friends), she realized that not a single one of them made her heart race as much as the grouchy man next door whose rare smiles lit up her life. And so… she came to him with a proposition…

“One night, Hal. No strings. No dates. One night…”

This book is quite honestly a 50-50 spilt between romantic comedy and chick lit. The romance side was focused on Honey’s unconventional and unlikely romance with her reclusive, grouchy neighbor, and the chick lit side focused on some crazy stuff going down at Honey’s workplace near a senior’s home.

While this book wasn’t necessarily always funny, the funny parts were H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S!! I mean, really! Half my book has highlights and I couldn’t stop laughing! These parts almost reminded me of a British Wallbanger-type feeling. Honestly, I kinda wish that the whole book had been like this because even though the chick-lit-y scenes at her work were fun, I found myself just wanting to get back to the romance.

Regardless, this book definitely is all light-hearted. From hilarious sex shop escapades, to banter with her angry neighbor, to sexy spaghetti making lessons (this girl can’t cook to save her life, but he can), one of the best failed blind dates ever, a group of feisty seniors, and a whole lot of laughs, it was undeniably fun!

“We haven’t been to bed, and we’re not going to,” he said.

“You’re not wrong there, buster,” she yelled, opening the door. “You had your chance to spend the night with me and you blew it, big time.”

It wasn’t the best time to find herself eyeball to eyeball with the postman. He lifted his eyebrows at her appraisingly, handed her the morning mail and walked away sounding suspiciously as if he were laughing under his breath.

If you’re in the mood for just something that’ll make you smile, try this book! I’ll be honest, if the whole story had been focused on the romantic comedy side of things (rather than going back and forth with the workplace stuff), I would have rated it a solid 5 stars because seriously that stuff was pure GOLD!!!!! But regardless of that, I loved the writing, thoroughly enjoyed the book, and am really glad I read it! :)

Rating: 4+ stars. Standalone romantic comedy / chick-lit.
