PRE-ORDER ALERT: SAXON by Chantal Fernando. This is the first book in the Morning Alliance series and is about a girl who finds herself attracted to the last guy she she ever thought she wanted. However, he used to be her best friend’s boyfriend, until he cheated on her, making the likeliness that he could cheat again high, especially cause he’s in a band. I cannot wait to read this! It will be released on August 11th and is a stand alone.

ADDICTED SERIES FANS!!! THRIVE now has a blurb! I am a HUGE fan of this series and cannot wait for the release of Thrive on July 18th! This is not a stand alone and must be read in order. ADD TO GOODREADSSERIES READING ORDER.

Two years will change them forever.

When rumors spread like wildfire—like having three-ways with her boyfriend’s rock climbing brother—Lily Calloway spirals into a dark place. Her bedroom. Loren Hale is more confident and determined to keep their sex life private, even from their friends, and he helps Lily in the only way he knows how. But how much love is too much?

Their lives are filmed, watched, and criticized. And through it all, Lily and Loren have to face enemies they never thought they’d see, demons they don’t know if they should bury, and setbacks they didn’t think they’d meet. Not this soon.
And one rumor could be too much for them to handle. It will test their greatest limitations, and if they don’t hold onto each other, someone is going to drown.

**A full-length New Adult Romance that bridges the two year gap between the second and third book. This is required to read before Addicted After All if you have not read the Calloway Sisters spin-off series.**

It is about a girl who has a horrible past, one that makes other people’s touch burn her skin. When things are at its lowest for her, a beautiful man on a bike comes and begins to help heal her. This has a dark edge to it and has some really sad, horrible happen to the girl. It is a stand alone.

HARDER (Caroline & West #2) by Robin YorkI just finished reading this one and I am in LOVE with this series. It is beautifully written and such a great conclusion to Caroline and West’s story. This series is a two book story arc about love, loss, standing tall and fighting back, friendship and never giving up on the one you love. You have to read DEEPER (see My Review) first. I highly recommend these books!

BEAUTIFUL OBLIVION by Jamie McGuire →  The Maddox brothers are back and Trent is finally getting his story! This is the first book in The Maddox Brothers series and it’ll be great to get back into this world!

TAMING THE STORM (Storm #3) by Samantha Towle → This is the third book in The Storm series, but can be read as a stand alone (although there are some spoilers from Wethering The Storm). This is Tom’s story and I’ve been anxious to meet the woman that will tame perpetual man whore Tom Carter.

When she vows to repay him with complete obedience, a whole world opens before her as he reveals to her his deepest secrets that will change everything.”

Cooper → This is a stand alone about a notorious playboy who doesn’t do love or relationships, but the minute he learns his best friend is moving away, he sees her in a different light. She is the only woman he never tried anything with but now that she might leave, he questions everything. I am loving the sound of this one!

LITTLE BLACK BOOK by Tabitha Vargo & Melissa Andrea →  It is about a guy who adds women into his Little Black Book and when he calls, you are to come running. And he only has two rules, “Don’t ever deny him and don’t fall in love” or you will be removed from his list. I’m intrigued!

This one is a second chance romance about a fighter who had his heart broken, but must turn to the woman who broke his heart for help. The first book in the series, AGAINST THE ROPES (ONLY $0.99), is about a different couple and not required to read this one.

VIPER’S RUN by Stephanie Tyler →  “Former Army Ranger Christian Cage Owens joined the Vipers Motorcycle Club for its sense of brotherhood. In return, he pledged to live outside the law, protecting club members and their families, as well as keeping other MCs out of Skulls Creek. But when Cage discovers that a rival MC—one Cage has an all too familiar past with—plans to push meth into his town, he calls an old Army buddy turned private investigator who’s helped the Vipers in the past. By doing so, Cage endangers both his friend and Calla Benson, a woman who works in the PI’s office. Now he’s made it his mission to track Calla down and do whatever it takes to protect her.”

When those intentions threaten Aly, Jared loses all control, giving into the rage that earned him his bad boy reputation years before.”

FIVE WAYS TO FALL by K.A. Tucker →  I am loving the sound of this book about two people who had a one-night stand in Cancun, who find themselves working in the same office. She’s the boss’ stepdaughter and “rumor has it she’s trouble. The only problem is, he likes trouble, especially when it’s so good-looking…” This is the fourth book in the series, but each one can be read as a stand alone.
