Releasing This Week

Lead Me Not
by A. Meredith Walters – Intense, heartbreaking and emotionally charged. This is a raw and poignant look at addiction and a riveting story about finding love when you need it the most. This is the first book in the series. Read my review.
Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover – The much awaited standalone about two people who fall in love. One, who is determined to not love again, and the other, who through her own tears must figure out if a relationship with a closed-off boy is worth it. Beautifully written and emotionally charged. Read my 6-star review.
Opposition by Jennifer L. Armentrout – Daemon is back in the conclusion of the Lux series! This was an electrifying conclusion to one of my favorite paranormal series. Reading Order: Shadows (prequel novella) | Obsidian | Onyx | Opal | Origin | OppositionOpposition
One Night Promised by Jodi Ellen Malpas – The first book in the erotic romance One Night series about a girl who meets an enigmatic man that “wants one night to worship her. No feelings, no commitment, nothing but pleasure.” 
Virgin by Radhika Sanghani – A clever, quirky, funny story about one girl’s quest to lose her virginity. This is Radhika Sanghani’s debut novel. Read my review.
Jane’s Harmony by Ryan Winfield – The follow up to the contemporary romance Jane’s Melody. This is the next chapter in Jane and Caleb’s love story. Reading Order: Jane’s MelodyJane’s Harmony
Taming My Prince Charming by JS Cooper – This is the second book in a contemporary romance series about a girl who studies abroad and has a whirlwind weekend fling with a hot guy who she never expected would be “her new professor. Or a Prince. Or the biggest asshole she had ever met.” Book 2 concludes the story. Reading Order: Finding My Prince CharmingTaming My Prince Charming
Taking It All by Maya Banks – This is the third book in the erotic romance Surrender trilogy. This is Chessy and Tate’s story.
Blurred by Kim Karr – This is the next novella in the Connections series all about Ben Covington. Reading OrderConnected | Torn | Dazed (novella) | Mended | Blurred (novella) | Frayed | Flawed | Perfected
dark skye coverDark Skye by Kresley Cole – The fifteenth book in the Immortals After Dark series. This is a story about two best friends who became mortal enemies. I loved it! This book can be read as a standalone, but best enjoyed if you read Kiss of A Demon King first and possibly Demon from the Dark as well. I read it blindly and thought it was fine.
dark skye coverUncovered by Emily Snow – A new romantic suspense standalone novel about a girl who uncovers that her whole life is a lie. From the blurb: It all started with one call. “Everything you know about your story—your father’s story—is a lie. It’s up to you to uncover everything.”

Must Read of the Week

I was in an emotional mood this week, craving the kind of stories that bring me to tears, making me feel every moment in the book. My favorite kind of novels are these emotional powerhouses and this week, two novels completely captivating me, enveloping me in stories about second chances at love.

don't let go coverDon’t Let Go by Sharla Lovelace – Noah and Jules were best friends. They grew up together, fell in love and hoped for a future full of love. One night, one decision tore them apart and Noah left their small town and didn’t come back for 26 years. And when he’s back, he’s isn’t alone, and he suddenly unearths all the pain and hurt and betrayal that Jules tried so hard to bury. This is a story about second chances. About mistakes made and love lost. About feeling abandoned and finding your own way. It’s also about forgiveness and hope and being courageous enough to fight for your happily ever after.

sweet gum tree coverThe Sweet Gum Tree by Katherine Allred – When eight-year-old Alix French meets ten-year-old Nick Anderson, they became inseparable friends. They fell in love over time. But one fateful day changed the rest of their lives in a way that could never be taken back. Nick abandons Alix, leaving her to fend for herself and the baby she carried. After years of dealing with grief and abandonment, as well as a bad marriage, Nick is back in town after 15 years. With both keeping secrets, they need to face their pasts before figuring out if they had the possibility of a future together. This is one of the most beautiful, gut-wrenching books I’ve ever read.
