  • Coming In From the Cold by Sarina Bowen ($.99) – I think this one’s a re-released sports romance, and for the time being it’s $.99! Country girl + ski racer.

With everyone hiding something, it may be difficult to decide who’s in it to win her heart and who’s out to destroy her.”

I’m an oddity to be stared at and desired…Life was going exactly the way I’d planned until Lille came along. She wanted to run away with the circus, have an adventure, but this world was never meant for her. I try to keep her safe, because she doesn’t know the dangers that are out here on the road…So I watch her. I try not to touch, even when her eyes invite me…The truest love is always the hardest to let in.”

  • Blocked by Lisa N. Paul ($.99) – I’m eyeing this one! “When it comes to relationships, they say timing is everything and everything has its time. History has played its part in [the hero and heroine’s] desire to give up on love. Fate will lead them to one another. It’s up to them to battle the outside forces, life’s interruptions, and daily dramas…together. With a little faith, they can undo everything that’s been blocked.”

Until my mom and her new husband, Jack, decide to take us all on a family vacation to the lake so I can meet my new stepbrothers for the first time. I don’t see it coming. When he gets out of that car, my world stops. My passionate lover is…my stepbrother.”
  • The Contradiction of Solitude by A. Meredith Walters – this book messed with my head big time! I couldn’t even rate it because I had so many thoughts running through my mind (here’s my review).
  • Love Survives by Jennifer Foor – book 2 in her Love Suicide series & even though it’s a standalone, it’s recommended to read after book 1. “The pain and anguish experienced in this is what it was like to hold onto hope that some day we’d find each other again. I won’t sugar coat the details of what I went through to have her, nor will I apologize for any actions that led me right back into her life. Sometimes love isn’t enough. For me, it took some bad experiences, a little fate, and a lot of time.”
  • Amour Amour by Krista & Becca Ritchie ($.99) – I really enjoyed this book!! It’s a standalone circus romance with stunning character growth (here’s my review).
  • Sex Love Repeat by Alessandra Torre ($.99) – I loved this book!! I like heroines that are edgy and unapologetic about what they do and want, and the girl here is just that! This was one gripping page-turner with twists leading up all the way to the end 😉
  • Emi Lost & Found series by Lori Otto ($5.99) – the complete series (4 books) bundle got a $3 price drop! These books made me UGLY cry and it took me over a week to read and process everything. It’s a completed second chance romance series.
  • Blind Obsession by Ella Frank ($1.99)
  • Veiled Innocence by Ella Frank ($1.99)
  • Three Simple Rules by Nikki Sloane – erotic employee/boss romance! “I would do anything for my dream job. Now I have to. In order to save my skin at the office, I’m forced to sell it at an exclusive and illegal blindfold club. He paid thousands of dollars for one night to own me, but when my blindfold comes off, I want more. More nights, more rules, and more from this unavailable and uncompromising man. Rule number one, no questions. Rule number two, no lies. But, rule number three? That’s the hardest one to obey.”

  • All Fired Up by Elle Kennedy ($.99) – I LOVED The Deal from her, so this one’s a 1-click for me! In this book the hero is one of 3 ex-rangers who decide to run a dating business together LOL!
  • The Contradiction of Solitude by A. Meredith Walters <– recent release from a favorite author that totally messed with my mind! Be warned that this is NOT a romance, just a pure psychological thriller. I didn’t know how to rate it with so many conflicting thoughts (here’s my review).
  • The Trouble with Love by Lauren Layne <– OMG this book!! Another winner for me – 4.5 stars – and it’s a book that’ll make you fall in love with the idea of love. Complete and total escapism and by the time I was done I just had this warm, happy book feeling…(here’s my review) TOP recommendation!!
  • Becoming Rain by K.A. Tucker <– recent release that I really loved – 4.5 stars!! Clever, suspenseful, and surprisingly there were moments of deep emotion too. Definitely a TOP recommendation (here’s my review)
  • Sweet Sound of Silence by Melanie Dawn <– new release that I enjoyed! Overall it’s a touching, sweet NA romance and one I would recommend (here’s my review)
  • The Deal by Elle Kennedy <– TOP recommendation!! This was seriously one of the best college romances I’ve ever read (here’s my review). Or better yet, don’t read my review. Just DIVE RIGHT IN and experience the whole thing for yourself
  • The Design by R.S. Grey <– a fun, cute and light romantic comedy read! (here’s my review)
  • The Hidden Library by Heather Lyons <– a fantasy romance I really enjoyed! (here’s my review) It’s the 2nd book in the series though so read book 1 first!
  • Broken Chords by Carrie Elks <– a realistic romance about an already married couple and their struggles (here’s my review).
  • Be My Hero by Linda Kage <– hmm I’m in the minority but this one didn’t really work for me. I adored the hero but there was too much drama that got in the way of the romance, at least for me (here’s my review). Don’t let my not-so-glowing review sway you from checking it out though, many loved it!
  • Before Jamaica Lane by Samantha Young <– an oldie from over a year ago but definitely a goodie! This is a TOP recommendation and it was such a FUN, steamy, and feel-good friends to lovers romance! Definitely will be making my favorites list for this year (here’s my review)
  • Until We Fly by Courtney Cole <– TOP recommendation!! Why did I wait so long to read this one?! Either way, I’m glad I finally read it because this NA romance was gripping, it was unputdownable, and I didn’t want it to end when it did. Highly recommend!! (here’s my review)
  • Shug by Jenny Han <– this was a re-read for me, and one of my favorite YA books!! I’m amazed that after seven years since I last read it, it still affects me and makes an impact. 5 stars and a book I’d recommend to everyone – you, your teenage kids, your friends, etc…(here’s my review)
  • The Hooker & the Hermit by LH Cosway & Penny Reid <– TOP recommendation and a 5 star read for me! Such a fun, fresh, and quirky book – you won’t find a more wonderful, full-of-heart story to fall in love with (here’s my review)

  • Calling Me Home by Julie Kibler <– TOP recommendation and a 5 star read for me! Just thinking about this book is making my eyes water. I took a chance on this one and I strongly encourage you all to do the same (here’s my review)
  • Sweet Fall by Tillie Cole <– a TOP recommendation!! This NA romance is one of the darkest and emotionally heavy stories I’ve read in a long while, but it was exactly what I was in the mood for. It also made me ugly cry and I’m just blown away by the amount of emotion it evoked….if you’re looking for a standalone romance guaranteed to make you FEEL, try this one! (here’s my review)
  • Dear Emily (#1) and Dear Tabitha (#2) by Trudy Stiles <– TOP recommendation!

BEST kind of reading experience!! Here’s my review for book 1 and here’s my review for book 2. Be sure to read these in order!
  • Extinguish (#1) and Reignite (#2) by JM Darhower <– TOP recommendation!! This 2-book paranormal forbidden romance was unputdownable from the get go and I didn’t want the story to end. I mean, the hero is Lucifer, the Devil! That alone made me pick these up  Here’s my review for book 1 and here’s my review for book 2.
  • Amour Amour by Krista & Becca Ritchie <– I really enjoyed this NA romance! This was so unique (setting is in the circus) and the character development was stunning! It truly embodies every aspect of NA and as always, the authors’ writing style is great. Totally recommend (here’s my review)
  • Last Will & Testament by Dahlia Adler <– another favorite! This was such a refreshingly witty NA romance standalone (a little taboo since he’s the heroine’s TA). Totally recommend it (here’s my review)
  • Nine Minutes by Beth Flynn <– TOP recommendation!! This 5 star book rocked my world, 200% unputdownable (here’s my review)
  • Clockwork Angel (#1)Clockwork Prince (#2), and Clockwork Princess (#3) by Cassandra Clare are my ultimate TOP recommendations!! I seriously finished this sensational trilogy and had tears dripping down my face, a pile of tissues discarded on the floor, and food wrappers scattered around me. It was SO emotional, SO intense, SO passionate, and SO good. 6 star series for me!! (here’s my series review) These books must be read in order!
