RECENT RECOMMENDATIONS


| The Call Series by Emma Hart | Purchase: Late Call, #1 - Final Call, #2 | My Reviews: #1 - #2 |

This is the LAST DAY to purchase both books for only $0.99 each! I've fallen in complete weak-in-the-knees, heart-fluttering book love with this series! Aaron Stone and Dayton Black are officially one of my favorite couples ever!
 

| Make It Count by Megan Erickson | Purchase | My Review |
 
This was a fun, yet touching, New Adult read. It had drama and heartbreak, made me laugh and silly-grin, and even had some hot, in-the-moment steamy scenes! If you haven't read Kat and Alec's story yet, pick up Make It Count to read this Summer, then keep your eye on the Bowler University series!

This was a beautiful love story! From first meeting to happily ever after, it was a serendipitous, heart-melting, and soul-warming kind of love. If you like strong, independent heroines, super-swoony heroes, and adventure, check out Daisy Prescott's newest novel!

NEW RELEASES



| Better When He's Bad by Jay Crownover | Purchase
Dovie Pryce knows all about living a hard life and the tough choices that come with it. She’s always tried to be good, tried to help others, and tried not to let the darkness pull her down. But the streets are fighting back, things have gone from bad to worse, and the only person who can help her is the scariest, sexiest, most complicated ex-con The Point has ever produced.
This was already high on my TBR list, but I've received so many rec's that I think I'll have to start this one ASAP! Andrea, who is practically my dark-side twin, immediately told me all about it: "I just finished it and want to read it again...I have read her other books and this one is not like the others"

| Losing Control by Jen Frederick | Purchase |
I’d do anything to keep my mother alive.

Anything, including ask Ian Kerr for help. I don’t know much about him, except that he has more money than some small countries. And he’s willing to spend it on me. Just one catch: there’s a string attached, and not just the one I feel pulling me into his arms and his bed. There’s also the plan for revenge he wants my help with.
I looove the sound of this one, and I've also read enough teasers to know I'll love the sexy-suspense vibe! ;) The cover is gorgeous, too!

| Wingman (Woman) by Bella Jewel | Purchase |
He fell for her million-dollar pussy and those damned legs, and then he found another man balls deep inside her just over a year ago.  
Broke his heart—the heart she still holds.

So that’s where I come in. I’d like to call myself a superhero, but that would be unclassy. I’m far better. I’m the ultimate. I’m the reason his bed is kept warm and his ex is kept jealous.

I’m Reign’s wingman.
Another blurb that set off my Well, this should be fun-radar!
 
| Scoring Wilder by R.S. Grey | Purchase |
What started out as a joke— seduce Coach Wilder—soon became a goal she had to score.

With Olympic tryouts on the horizon, the last thing nineteen-year-old Kinsley Bryant needs to add to her plate is Liam Wilder. He's a professional soccer player, America's favorite bad-boy, and has all the qualities of a skilled panty-dropper.
Aaah, forbidden romance! This sexy bad boy, Liam Wilder, has built up quite the hype! Plus...I downloaded a sample and couldn't help but 1-click after reading Kinsley's feisty point of view!

| In Love with a Master by Jason Luke | Purchase |
How high a price will one man pay to know love?

For Jonah Noble, life has always been his world - his way. But now, confronted with his own mortality, and staring certain death in the face, he realizes his one regret...
Jonah Noble is baaack! The author gave Jonah such a distinct voice, and I thoroughly enjoyed his stunning storytelling in the first book. (My review for Interview with a Master)

| The Fall of January Cooper by Audrey Bell | Purchase |
How do you lose everything?

Ask January Cooper.

She was the daughter of a Dallas multimillionaire, the debutante of the year, and the girl most likely to get whatever she wanted.

But when her father is arrested for securities fraud, the girl who had everything starts to lose everything. And once she starts falling, she can't seem to stop.

| The Life You Left by Carmel Harrington | Purchase |
‘Sarah, I’m not coming home tonight. If you love me, you will give me the space I need…Tell the children I love them.’ 
It started out like any other day for Sarah Lawler; getting the kids ready for school, making the pack lunches and juggling baby Ella’s feeds. 
There was no way of knowing that her husband, Paul, would leave for work that morning and simply not come home. 
Now the questions are piling up quicker than the unpaid bills and, unable to answer her children’s questions about where their Daddy is, Sarah is getting desperate. 
But it turns out she isn’t quite as alone as she thought she was. When her beloved childhood friend, Edward, comes back into her life, Sarah thinks she’s finally been thrown a life line. 
There’s just one problem with Edward: no one else can see him.
Edward is an angel. And he has a message for Sarah that will change her life and the lives of others forever. For it is only in the most difficult of times that Sarah can discover how strong she truly is. 
Set in a small coastal village on the beautiful Irish coast, The Life You Left is a story of redemption and the strength of love.
Yes, I had to include the entire description. Because I had a "whoa..." moment after reading that blurb! This sounds like it could pull at all the heartstrings...*eeep* Beautiful cover, too!

He was there the night my brother was murdered. He watched it all go down.

"...what is that getup you're wearing supposed to do?"
