Top Ten Books on my Spring TBR List…

 

 

Flirting with fireFLIRTING WITH FIRE by Kate Meader

I received my ARC last week and I’m so excited to read this one. It’s book 1 in Kate Meader’s new series.

 

 

dark triumphDARK TRIUMPH by Robin LaFevers

I loved Book 1 so I can’t wait to read the second book featuring Sybella. And Beast.

 

 

 

 of silk and steamOF SILK AND STEAM by Bec McMaster

I admit that I have had the eARC of this since late last year and I really, really wanted to read it since it’s finally Leo’s story. Unfortunately, real life can get in the way of reading sometimes. I hope this spring would change that a bit.

 

 

silver bastardSILVER BASTARD by Joanna Wylde

It’s a brand-new series from Joanna Wylde but it features a character we’ve already been introduced to in the previous book. Oh, Puck! I can’t wait to finish his story (since I already started reading my e-ARC).

“Waiting On” Wednesday (68): CHASE ME by Tessa Bailey

New WoW

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.

This week’s spotlight is on:

chase meCHASE ME (Broke and Beautiful #1)

by Tessa Bailey

Release Date: March 17, 2015

College drop-out, Roxy Cumberland, moved to New York with dreams of becoming an actress, but her dwindling bank account is quickly putting the kibosh on that fantasy. To make some quick cash, she signs up to perform singing telegrams. Her first customer is a gorgeous, cocky Manhattan trust-funder if she ever laid eyes on one. And what could be more humiliating than singing an ode to his junk, courtesy of his last one night stand? Maybe the fact that she’s dressed in a giant, pink bunny costume…

After a night out to celebrate winning his last case, lawyer Louis McNally II isn’t prepared for the pounding in his head or the rabbit serenading him from the front door. But the sassy wit and sexy voice of the girl behind the mask intrigues him, and one look at her stunning face—followed by a mind-blowing kiss against his doorjamb—leaves Louis wanting more.

Roxy doesn’t need a spoiled rich boy who’s had everything in life handed to him on a Tiffany platter. But there’s more to Louis than his sexy surface and he’s determined to make Roxy see it…even if it means chasing her all over NYC.

top ten of 2014

Top Ten of 2014: A Week of Looking Back is a year-end meme hosted by Jamie @ Two Chicks On Books, Rachel @ Fiktshun, Mindy @ Magical Urban Fantasy Reads, and Nancy @ Tales of a Ravenous Reader

It’s Day 5, the last day of this awesome week talking about the best of the best, and I’m counting down the Top Ten Books I’m Looking Forward to in 2015. I’ve actually done this list earlier this month as part of a weekly meme and you can check out my list HERE. But I’m tweaking that list a bit for this post and included even the books I’ve already received the eARCs of.

There are so many good books to look forward to in 2015. It’s going to be another amazing year for reading!

 

the winner's crime

 

The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoksi

I have the eARC of this one and I can’t wait to find out about the next chapter in Arin’s and Kestrel’s lives.

 

 

 

vision in silver

 

Vision in Silver by Anne Bishop

I really liked Written in Red, though it took a while before I got into the story. But by Murder of Crows, I was in love with all these characters that I can’t wait to find out what happens to them next. And, Simon and Meg, of course.

 

 

of silk and steam

 

Of Silk and Steam by Bec McMaster

I also have an eARC of this one and I’ve been waiting for Leo’s story since the second book, I think, so I cannot wait to read this one. Plus, hello there enemies-to-lovers trope.

 

 

 

once upon a rose

 

Once Upon A Rose by Laura Florand

I need me some new Laura Florand every year (or twice a year, or thrice a year!). If she writes it, I’ll read it. It’s as simple as that.

 

 

 

Flirting with fire

 

Flirting With Fire by Kate Meader

I’ve been without a full-length Kate Meader read for far too long. I can’t wait for this first book of a brand new series. I’ve read the novella that serves as a prologue to this series and I really loved it.

 

 

 

shards of hope

 

Shards of Hope by Nalini Singh

Oh my, we’re now on Book #14 of her Psy-Changeling series and it’s poised to be the ending of this particular story arc. I can’t wait to read it! It’s Aden and it’s a Psy-Psy pairing, or more specifically, an Arrow-Arrow pairing. I really can’t wait!

 

 

once upon a marquess

 

Once Upon A Marquess by Courtney Milan

A brand new series from one of my favorite HR authors. I am excited about this one. I know she’ll give her readers unconventional and yet achingly beautiful stories and lovely characters again.

 

 

i'll meet you there

 

I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios

I’m so excited to read a Heather Demetrios book. I’ve heard great things about this one and her other book. I hope I’ll love it.

 

 

 

crushed

 

Crushed by Lauren Layne

I so want to read Michael’s story already. He’s been breaking my heart since Isn’t She Lovely and even more so in Broken. I want him to get his own HEA.

 

 

 

chase me

 

Chase Me by Tessa Bailey

I need more Tessa Bailey stories in my life. Seriously. The premise of this book sounds so hilarious and sexy, I can’t wait to read it.

 

 

 

 

Honorable Mentions:

Anticipation by Sarah Mayberry
Rock Hard by Nalini Singh
Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare
P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han

It’s Day 4 and I’m counting down my top ten Best Book Boyfriends of 2014. This list includes characters from books I’ve read this year and were published this year.

There were so many to choose from that I can definitely say that 2014 has been a great year for falling in love with fictional characters. lol 🙂

 

Patrick

chocolate temptationfrom The Chocolate Temptation by Laura Florand: Passionate, sexy, and so emotionally reachable. (My review)

“I should never have recommended you for this job,” Patrick said. “But… you did deserve it. And I had only met you for the length of one workshop, when I was pretty busy helping all kinds of students besides just you. I knew I was attracted to you, but I had no idea what working in close quarters with you was going to be like.”

“What has it been like?” she asked, puzzled.

A rough laugh. “You can’t even imagine it. You can pull into yourself and shut me out, and I can’t do that, Sarah. You drive me crazy every single second of every day.”

 

Edward

the suffragate scandalfrom The Suffragette Scandal by Courtney Milan: honorable, loyal, and gosh, how he loved Free and her mind. (My review)

“Everything about you matters to me.” He leaned in. “It shouldn’t. I keep telling myself it shouldn’t, that it’s only the lust talking. But every time we talk, you turn my world upside down.”

Top Ten of 2014: A Week of Looking Back is a year-end meme hosted by Jamie @ Two Chicks On Books, Rachel @ Fiktshun, Mindy @ Magical Urban Fantasy Reads, and Nancy @ Tales of a Ravenous Reader

It’s Day 3 and it’s Blogger’s Choice! For my post, I am counting down my top ten best couples of 2014. This list includes couples from books I’ve read this year regardless of publication dates.

I’m a romance junkie, no doubt about that. It’s rare for me to read anything that has no romance in it so I’m pretty familiar with all kinds of couples. I’ve ‘met’ a lot of them over the years and here are just some of the best from the bunch this year.

 

Juliette & Warner

shatter me unravel me ignite me
from the Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi. Easily one of the best this year. This pairing felt like one of those things that I’ve dreamed about for so long since I started reading. I know not everybody agrees and I respect that. But I’m just so glad Tahereh Mafi decided to make this happen.  (My review of Ignite Me)

 

taylor and jonah

jellicoe road
from the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta. The connection between these two, it will blow your mind. I’m not just talking about chemistry, though these two definitely have that. I’m talking about how their lives are so intertwined, there’s just no running away from each other. (My review)

A sexy category romance from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…

The fighting was just foreplay…

Brent Mason and Hayden Winstead can’t stand each other. She plans exclusive parties for her rich familys charities. He’s a rough and tumble cop who rigs explosives for a living. Could two people be any less suited for conversation? They think not and prefer to keep it that way.

Unfortunately, their two best friends are deeply, disgustingly in love. Forced together, the mutual attraction simmering beneath the surface of Brent and Hayden’s non-relationship grows with every argument until it explodes into a scintillating night of mind-blowing sex. And it wont be the last, as far as Brent’s concerned.

Hayden has a secret, though. Her father’s company is relying on a merger to save them from financial ruin, and only Hayden’s marriage to the CEOs wealthy son can secure the deal. If she’s to protect her family, she’ll have to forget Brent. And he has no intention of being forgotten.

A sexy category romance from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…

His need to possess her is non-negotiable.

Story Brooks’ fiancé just called off their wedding two weeks before the happy day. As if that isn’t bad enough, her semi-estranged father, an infamous NYPD hostage negotiator, has suffered a heart attack. Not wanting to examine her lack of emotion over the broken engagement, she hops on a plane to reconnect with her father before it’s too late.

Playboy hostage negotiator Daniel Chase has never, not once, been refused by a woman, so when a debate over hospital snack foods with a delectable kindergarten teacher ends in flat-out rejection, he makes it his mission to seduce her. His only obstacle? She’s the daughter of his mentor who implicitly forbade Daniel from pursuing her.

Despite her father’s warnings and Daniel’s troubled past, Daniel and Story can’t resist their intense attraction to one another. But when the reason for her fiancé’s abrupt wedding cancellation comes to light, can Story and Daniel’s already forbidden relationship survive?
