| Consequences by Aleatha Romig | Purchase |
Every action has consequences. Learn the rules to survive. Captivate the captor.
| If You Stay by Courtney Cole | Purchase |
Twenty-four-year-old Pax Tate is an asshole. Seriously. He's a tattooed, rock-hard bad boy with a tough attitude to match...Now, he uses drugs and women to cope with the black void in his soul. He pretends that the emptiness isn't there and this has always worked . . . until he meets Mila.
| Poughkeepsie by Debra Anastasia | Purchase |
He counts her smiles every day and night at the train station. And morning and evening, the beautiful commuter acknowledges him—just like she does everyone else on the platform. But Blake Hartt is not like the others . . . he’s homeless.
| Raising Ryann by Alyssa Rae Taylor | Purchase |

Twenty-year-old Reese Johnson can finally leave her troublesome past behind. She enters college with her best friend, Gia, and spends her time doing what she loves—working as a self-defense instructor at a local gym. Then Luke Ryann enters the picture. He’s the tall, dark, and tattooed MMA fighter her boss hires to privately train her...He’s the last thing she wants or needs, and she never expects to fall in love with him.

You should all know by now how addicted I am to the mystery/suspense reads. This week's list has a few that made my radar go off like crazy! ;) The Laws of Kings? Had me at "crime family." Break Through? That blurb gave me a good jolt! And, hello, Sex Unlimited! Another blurb jolt! As for the last one, Destructive, I've heard it has its dark side, but with a little humor and banter. Basically...I want to devour all of these!

| The Laws of Kings by Jennifer Loren | Purchase |
Dace is one of four brothers of the Colletto crime family. His father has been running the family without issue for decades, but now someone is out to prove that the old man's time to retire has come...all the while trying to keep himself from the beautifully tempting, female detective, Austin Reed.
| Break Through by Amber Garza | Purchase |
At the age of eight, Aspen Fairchild is kidnapped. Taken hostage by a man she trusts. Five years later she escapes, vowing never to trust another man. Now she’s an adult and she’s kept the promise she made to herself as a child, keeping men at a distance.  
Carter Johnston is talented and charming. A photographer well known for his ability to capture the true essence of his subjects. When Carter is assigned to photograph Aspen for an article in a prominent magazine, the connection between them is undeniable.  
Aspen is drawn to Carter’s charm and artistic ability. As they grow closer, the walls Aspen has built around her heart for years begin to crumble. Until she finds a photograph in Carter’s house which catapults her back to her time in captivity. A photograph Carter shouldn’t have.
| Translucent by Erin Noelle | Purchase |
The day I watched my husband murder the woman who was pregnant with his child, my point didn’t just break; it exploded like a full magazine’s worth of hollow points firing through the barrel of a fully-automatic AK-47. Literally. I am no longer his American Princess, nor am I his slave. Now, I’m a murderer in hiding. My name was Bryleigh Carter Oliveira, and that was my story.
| Come by JA Huss | Purchase |
My name is James Fenici and you are my target. Only one of us is getting out alive, and that’s not gonna be you. Once your name is on my list, your life is over. It’s a deal I make with death, it’s a contract I sign in blood, it’s forgone conclusion—get used to it.  
My name is James Fenici and I’m as dirty as they come. But then one day I saw her. And every monster I thought I was. Every fact I thought I knew. Every dirty promise I ever turned down came back to slap me in the face.  
My name is James Fenici and I think I am in love.
| Sex Unlimited by Kathryn Perez | Purchase |
I like to f*ck. Hard. I like to f*ck slowly. I also enjoy making love. I like to be pleasured. I love to give pleasure. I like to laugh. I like to make others laugh. I love the female body and testing its limits. I love a lover who will explore new things without shame or embarrassment. I want to make a woman come so hard and in so many ways that her body designs its own special language just for mine. 
I hope to possibly learn what you like, too.

| Destructive by Jessica Prince | Purchase |
Men cause nothing but pain.  
I live my life by these five words. For me, they have always proven to be true. Men have only brought hurt and suffering my entire life, leaving nothing but devastation in their wake.  
I fear them. I hate them.  
Until him.


| Harder by Robin York | Purchase | My Review: Caroline & West, #1 |
Caroline still dreams about West. His warm skin, his taut muscles, his hand sliding down her stomach. Then she wakes up and she’s back to reality: West is gone. And before he left, he broke her heart.
Caroline and West are back! Their first book, Deeper, is definitely on my Best of 2014 list, so I can't wait to read their follow-up!

| Beautiful Oblivion by Jamie McGuire | Purchase |
As the baby sister of four rowdy brothers, Cami believes she’ll have no problem keeping her new friendship with Trenton Maddox strictly platonic. But when a Maddox boy falls in love, he loves forever—even if she is the only reason their already broken family could fall apart.
A Maddox brother really needs no introduction, but I must say...I am so excited for Trenton, and his book is probably one of my most anticipated reads of the year!!!
