Latest Book News and Recap

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone. We are already in the middle of January. Wow, time does fly. I think Christmas and New Year celebrations were just yesterday. In the blink of an eye, we’re gonna leave January. Anyway, I will go back to school to finish my master program at the end of this month and continue my piano lessons. I’m so excited. I’m planning to start a new hobby this year too. I love learning something new every year, which is the reason I started this blog last year.

Reading-wise, I managed to read two books last week, Against All Odds by Jezz de SilvaThrive by Aly Martinez and Uncharted by Julie Johnson. I hope you check my reviews for them if you haven’t yet. Have a wonderful weekend and happy reading!

Uncharted by Julie Johnson Against All Odds (Outback Hearts) by [Silva, Jezz de]

New Releases (released this week):

Sex, Not Love by Vi KeelandStandalone, contemporary romanceBuy on Amazon

My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backward.

We met at a wedding—him sitting on the groom’s side, me sitting on the bride’s. Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an intense, mutual attraction.

I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter. Hunter held me tightly while we danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us. His blunt, dirty mouth should’ve turned me off. But for some crazy reason, it had the opposite effect on me. We ended up back in my hotel room. The next morning, I headed home to New York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number.

I thought about him often, but after my last relationship, I’d sworn off of charming, cocky, gorgeous-as-sin men. A year later, Hunter and I met again at the birth of our friends’ baby. Our attraction hadn’t dulled one bit. After a whirlwind trip, he demanded a real phone number this time. So I left him with my mother’s—she could scare away any man with her talks of babies and marriage—and flew back home.

I’d thought it was funny, until the following week when he rang the bell at Mom’s house for Sunday night dinner. The crazy, gorgeous man had won over my mother and taken an eight-week assignment in my city. He proposed we spend that time screwing each other out of our systems.

Eight weeks of mind-blowing sex with no strings attached? What did I have to lose.

Nothing, I thought. 
It’s just sex, not love. 
But you know what they say about the best-laid plans…

Decidedly With Love (By The Bay Book 3) by [Lindenblatt, Stina]Decidedly With Love by Stina LindenblattStandalone, fake relationship, contemporary romance – Buy on Amazon 

Fake boyfriend Rule #1: never fall for your fake girlfriend.

Emma Lovejoy runs Aphrodite’s Boutique, a store that specializes in all things love-related. A store that she adores with all her heart, and which is at risk of being shut down and replaced with a condo development. 

Playboy Travis Hamilton was raised by his feisty, well-meaning grandmother, who is determined to help her grandson find The One. But when most women he meets tend to be puck bunnies or women only interested in his hockey-player income—and let’s not forget the nutcase of an ex-girlfriend—why bother? 

Travis realizes only a fake girlfriend will deter his grandmother’s matchmaking scheme. Too bad the one woman who can help him is the sexy redhead who wants to assist him as much as she wants her eyeballs to be dunked in hot sauce and barbecued. To convince her, he promises to help her with her own dilemma. But sometimes fire and ice really do mix. Now Travis has to decide if love is in the air—and if together he and Emma make something hotter. Something stronger. Something real.

Man Card (Man Hands Book 2) by [Bowen, Sarina, Eby, Tanya]Man Card by Sarina Bowen and Tanya EbyStandalone, contemporary, romantic comedyBuy on Amazon

A sexy new stand-alone comedy.

I still don’t know how it happened. One minute I was arguing with my arrogant competitor–our usual trash-talk over who deserves the larger commission. But somehow I went from throwing down to kneeling down…
It can never happen again. I don’t even like Braht. He’s too slick. He’s a manipulating mansplaining party boy in preppy clothes.
So why can’t I get him out of my head?

There are two things I know without question. One: Ash and I are destined for each other. Two: never trust a man with a unibrow.
Ash is my missing my piece. She’s the sweet cream to my gourmet espresso. And nothing gets me going faster than her contempt for me. They don’t call her the Ashkicker for nothing.
Eventually I’ll win her over…if my past doesn’t ruin everything first.

Fifty Shades Freed (Movie Tie-In) by E.L. JamesBook three of Fifty Shades series, erotica, billionaire, contemporary romanceBuy on Amazon

When unworldly student Anastasia Steele first encountered the driven and dazzling young entrepreneur Christian Grey it sparked a sensual affair that changed both of their lives irrevocably. Shocked, intrigued, and, ultimately, repelled by Christian’s singular erotic tastes, Ana demands a deeper commitment. Determined to keep her, Christian agrees.

Now, Ana and Christian have it all–love, passion, intimacy, wealth, and a world of possibilities for their future. But Ana knows that loving her Fifty Shades will not be easy, and that being together will pose challenges that neither of them would anticipate. Ana must somehow learn to share Christian’s opulent lifestyle without sacrificing her own identity. And Christian must overcome his compulsion to control as he wrestles with the demons of a tormented past.

Just when it seems that their strength together will eclipse any obstacle, misfortune, malice, and fate conspire to make Ana’s deepest fears turn to reality.

Total Exposure: Jordan's Game by [Huss, JA]Total Exposure (Jordan’s Game) by JA HussStandalone, erotica, contemporary romance Buy on Amazon

Not everyone needs a master. 
Not everyone needs to really live, either. 
Some people are content to be a participant in the game of life.
Others want to play for real.
If you want to play for real, come to me, lovely.
I’ll give you that little push you need. 
I’ll open your mind, and your world, and soul.
Lay you bare. Let you feel the heat of my stare.
Take you places you’ve never been before.
Your body is my chessboard, sweets.
And if you give in to me, and you play, you might even win.
It’s just… your prize might not be what you went looking for. 

Headmaster (Lessons from the Rack) by [Me, Tara Sue]Headmaster (Lessons from the Rack) by Tara Sue MeStandalone, erotica, contemporary romanceBuy on Amazon

Lennox MacLure, owner of the RACK Academy, has sworn off the Dominant/submissive lifestyle. Years ago, his submissive, Winnie, died in a car accident following a heated argument for which he blames himself. Guilt-ridden and emotionally closed off, Lennox sees the academy as both his punishment and penance for her death.

Mariela, a dance instructor and a natural submissive, was Winnie’s best friend and longs to help Lennox move past his grief. She’s accepted that he will never see her as anything more than a friend, but she still wants to help him acknowledge what he needs. Mariela comes up with a plan of seduction, guaranteed to unleash the Dominant he’s willfully buried—but the passion they unleash could prove to be stronger than they are ready to handle.

The Bitterroot Inn (Jamison Valley #5) by Devney Perry The Bitterroot Inn (Jamison Valley Book 5) by Devney PerryStandalone, small town, single mother, contemporary romanceBuy on Amazon – It’s AWESOME! MY REVIEW.

Her past. His secrets. They have more in common than she knows.

Maisy is happily content with the life she’s built for herself and her young son in small-town Prescott, Montana. Her child is thriving, her business is growing, and her family is as close as they’ve ever been. But when a handsome stranger walks into the lobby of her motel, her simple life is swept up in a wave of affection for his gentle heart. None of those feelings can be trusted, though. She made that mistake before with another man. The man she murdered.

Hunter was a different man when he first saw Maisy Holt from afar. He took one look at her and ran in the opposite direction. But years later, he’s back in Montana and unable to keep his distance. He shouldn’t have tried to find her but he never was good at rejecting temptation. The promise of the good she could bring into his life is too hard to resist. Maybe if he can disguise the lies and hide the deceit, he can keep her from learning the truth. Because his only chance at a future with her is by burying his past.

HOT SEAL Bride (HOT SEAL Team - Book 4) by [Harris, Lynn Raye]HOT SEAL Bride (HOT SEAL Team Book 4) by Lynn Raye HarrisStandalone, action-packed, sexy, contemporary romanceBuy on Amazon

Sold to the highest bidder…

For the past fourteen years, Princess Antonella Rossi has been a virtual prisoner. She has no friends, no fun, and she’s not allowed to leave her aunt and uncle’s Virginia compound without an escort. 

But today is her wedding day. A rich sheikh has bought her virginity, and with it her freedom. Any hope of independence Ella’s ever cherished will disappear the instant she faces him across the altar. With time running out and the wedding party gathering, Ella seizes the opportunity to run as far and fast as she can.

Navy SEAL Cash “Money” McQuaid isn’t looking for trouble, but trouble always seems to find him. This time trouble is five foot four and wearing a wedding dress. Rescuing a runaway princess has consequences though, and with his face plastered on the evening news and his career on the line, he realizes there’s only one way out of this mess—he has to marry her!

It’s a marriage in name only, just until he can clear his name and win Ella the freedom she seeks. But shacking up with a gorgeous virgin isn’t as easy as it seems, especially when the sparks snapping between them are hotter and more dangerous than anything Cash has ever experienced. By the time he realizes it’s too late to resist his virgin bride, an unseen enemy is intent on taking her away from him. 

Cash is gonna need all his skills—and his friends on the Hostile Operations Team—in order to rescue his princess bride and give her the happily-ever-after she deserves. 

The Hostile Operations Team is a covert military Black Ops unit. Their motto is Where None Dare. H.O.T. operators come from all branches of the military. The only criteria for membership: they must be the best of the best!

Burned by an ex with a wandering eye, Austin Rhodes has sworn off women. His sole focus is his young daughter – and despite his good intentions, the little girl’s live-in nanny. He hired Mia Atwood to care for his child but he finds himself lusting after her instead. Keeping his distance isn’t easy but he’s determined to be a gentleman. Until Mia’s past comes back to haunt her and she’s in need of Austin’s brand of protection. Suddenly she’s his in every sense of the word — and he’ll do whatever it takes to shield the woman who tempts him beyond reason.

Down by Contact (The Barons) by [Hassell, Santino]Down by Contact (The Barons) by Santino Hassell Standalone, football players, M/M, contemporary romanceBuy on Amazon

Simeon Boudreaux, the New York Barons’ golden-armed quarterback, is blessed with irresistible New Orleans charm and a face to melt your mama’s heart. He’s universally adored by fans and the media. Coming out as gay in solidarity with his teammate hasn’t harmed his reputation in the least—except for some social media taunting from rival linebacker Adrián Bravo.

Though they were once teammates, Adrián views Simeon as a traitor and the number-one name on the New Jersey Predators’ shit list. When animosity between the two NFL players reaches a boiling point on the field, culminating in a dirty fist fight, they’re both benched for six games and sentenced to joint community service teaching sullen, Brooklyn teens how to play ball.

At first, they can barely stand to be in the same room, but running the camp forces them to shape up. With no choice but to work together, Simeon realizes Adrián is more than his alpha-jerk persona, and Adrián begins to question why he’s always had such strong feelings for the gorgeous QB…

Until one wild kiss on a dark night changes everything. Now Reece is certain Jenna’s meant to be his. And with long nights in bed, sensual caresses, and deep, lingering kisses, he sets out to thoroughly convince her that friends can be lovers, too.

One minute, Casey Shea was minding her own business, doing her job, teaching entomology to college students, and the next she was in the middle of the Costa Rican, jungle fighting for her life. 

Troy “Beatle” Lennon has watched his friends fall head over heels in love, but never thought it would happen to him. Until he sees a picture of his teammate’s sister. That was it. The absolute joy in her eyes calls to him in a way he can’t understand. 

But that joy is currently being threatened by an unknown person who had Casey kidnapped and hidden deep in the jungle. It’s up to Beatle to find her and keep her safe until the threat can be neutralized. Surviving the dangers of the jungle turns out to be the easy part…staying ahead of the killer is much more complicated…and deadly.

Loving Hard: A Chesapeake Blades Hockey Romance (The Chesapeake Blades Book 2) by [Kamps, Lisa B.]Loving Hard by Lisa B. KampsStandalone, ex-wife/husband, contemporary romanceBuy on Amazon

Because sometimes love is the hardest game of all…

Sammie Reigler is done with men. At least, with one man in particular: her ex-husband. She fell head-over-heels in love, blindly jumped into marriage—and promptly had her heart broken when her husband served her with divorce papers while he was overseas. She picked up the shattered remnants of her life and took their daughter back home to Baltimore, where she started a new life working as a teacher—and playing hockey for the Chesapeake Blades. Now if only she could ignore the emptiness that haunts her in the middle of the night…

Nobody who knew him would call Jonathan Reigler a coward, but that was exactly what he was. Two years ago, at one of the lowest points in his life, he walked away from the only woman who ever mattered—and lost a piece of his soul in the process. Now it’s time to win his family back, and he’ll stop at nothing to regain the love and trust of the one woman who means more to him than life itself.

Hidden Seams by Alessandra TorreStandalone, contemporary romance Buy on Amazon

A billion-dollar fashion empire, and it’s about to be mine…

I’ve worked a decade for this. I’ve sold my soul and my reputation. I’ve lived a lie, smiled for the cameras, and hated myself, all for this fortune.

And then… she pops up. A mysterious heir with a rap sheet, combat boots, and a mouth that I want to pin shut with my—
It doesn’t matter. I’ve played this game for a decade. I can continue the charade a little longer, keep my hands to myself and her body out of my mind. I can keep my secret until the ink dries and everything is mine.

Or not.

Midnight Blue by [Shen, L.J.]Midnight Blue by L.J. ShenStandalone, contemporary romance – Buy on Amazon

It should have been easy.
I needed the money. He needed a babysitter to keep him from snorting himself to death.
I was cherry-picked especially for him. Responsible. Optimistic. Warm. Innocent.
The worst part is that I should have known better.
Alex Winslow. British rock star. Serial heartbreaker. Casanova with whiskey eyes.
“Don’t get near the devil in a leather jacket. He’ll chew you up and spit you out.”
Guess what? I didn’t listen.
I signed the contract.
World tour. Three months. Four Continents. One hundred shows.
My name is Indigo Bellamy, and I sold my soul to a tattooed god.
Problem was, my soul wasn’t enough for Alex Winslow. He ended up taking my body, too.
Then he took my heart.
Then he took my all.

  1. I swear Christmas was just yesterday, it’s crazy how time flies! When I was younger the year seemed to drag by, and I never really believed anyone that time speeds up as you get older; but it’s so true!

    Thank you for linking all those sales and freebies! I might be in a bit of one-click trouble here haha

    Have a wonderful week 🙂

    • Totally true. Time speeds up when you’re older. When I was a teenager, all I wanted was for the day to be over. I want time flies. Now I’m overwhelmed and kinda scared. Hehe..
      Have a great weekend, Wattle. ❤️😁

  2. Greg Hill

    Good luck with your master’s when you go back! And yes the time is flying by! Mid- January already? How is that even possible??

    Hope your weekend is awesome. 🙂

  3. I really don’t know how time flies like that! And ooh, piano lessons 🙂 I would love to have time for that still… it’s a wonderful hobby. When do you make the time! 🙂
    Have a wonderful week 🙂

  4. Yes… this year is already whipping by FAR too fast! Best of luck with the piano lessons – what a lovely skill you are acquiring:). Have a great week, Geybie.

  5. This might possibly be the most dangerous post I read today. Now I need to look at all those awesome books to purchase! 🙂 I have some gift cards burning holes in my pocket. lol
    I love the idea of learning something new each year. Might have to take up that idea!!

    I hope you have a great week, Geybie! Happy Reading! ox

    • Yay, glad to hear that. Traveling is something I would like to do as well but probably wouldn’t be this year. But it’s on my list for a near future. 😁

      Have a wonderful week.

  6. Good luck on returning back to school Geybie, hope it all goes well! So many incredible bargains this week! Unfortunately most of them are only available on the US website it seems, the Australian site where my account is redirected to, most are still full price. Might have a look anyway and see if I can pick up a bargain. Thanks so much for sharing Geybie <3

  7. Good luck with your masters and I hope you enjoy your time in back in school 🙂 I’m one of those people who LOVED being in school so getting my masters was a no-brainier (plus super useful!) 🙂 Any ideas what your new hobby for 2018 is going to be? No idea how you find the time for all of this, Friend 🙂

  8. Literary Feline

    I hope your school term gets off to a good start and have fun with the piano lessons. Do you know what new thing you want to learn this year? I definitely want to figure out how to do my daughter’s hair for dance. LOL Not a big goal, but it is proving to be a big challenge for me. Looks like you read some great books recently–and added some fun ones to your to read pile! I hope you enjoy them all. Have a wonderful week!

    • I’m planning to have a three month web design course. It’s on weekends. So, I think it will work. We’ll see. Haha.. it’s gonna be super hectic for sure. Anyway. I did learn hair do and makeup three years ago. And yep, hairdo can be challenging. In my case, it’s way harder than makeup. Haha.. but we you can do it, honey! 😁👍🏻👍🏻

  9. I can’t believe we are halfway through January. Where does the time go??? I hope school goes well!!! And the piano lessons. I love playing the piano. I’ve been playing for over 30 years. Man, I’m old! LOL

    Have a great week!

    • Oh wow, I wish I had started way sooner, Chrissy. Being able to play piano is one of my dreams. I love watching people play at church and concerts. Wow, 30 years. You must be an AMAZING player!!!! 😁❤️👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

  10. Have fun with piano lessons! I was a piano teacher many years ago (as well as classroom music teacher). About a year ago I gave our piano to one of my kids. I kind of miss it 🙂

    • Oh wow, awesome, Mary. It’s been one of my dreams to be able to play well. Can you lend me your talent. I was a slow learner. 😁

  11. Tempus fugit…always. I like the looks of The Bitterroot Inn. Thanks for sharing all your links. I hope school and lessons go well. Happy Reading!

  12. You made perfectly clear I need to catch up with quite a few books, LOL
    Hope you have a blast with your piano lessons, and nothing wrong with learning new things, I personally think that’s a great thing 🙂 x

    The month is flying by! Good luck with your new adventures. You show a lot of books I’m interested in but I’m trying to use restraint and not add a book unless I have some idea when I’ll be able to read it. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

    • Thank you, Kathy. I really need it. This year will be challenging but I hope I won’t get overwhelmed. Happy reading, my friend. 😁❤️

    Thanks for sharing all of these. I need to get Down by Contact, but also the first one in the series. LOL I really like Santino Hassell’s books though so I’m sure I’ll love them.

    It’s crazy that it’s already mid-January!!


    • I’m curious about his books too, Lauren. Been hearing great things about them. Glad that you enjoyed them too. Lots of bloggers are excited with this new release. 😁❤️

  15. Wow. There are some great books up there on sale. Thanks for putting this all together, Geybie. I know it takes a lot of time. Have a lovely week!

    I think it is great that you will be going back to school soon. I thought about going back to get my masters for a while but I won’t do it at this point. I have always wanted to play the piano as well. Lots of great new books and so many sales. Have a great week!

    Time really does fly! January is moving so quick. Thanks for sharing all the sales!

  18. So many wonderful books are coming out this week, all the contemporary romance to LOVE!! And great sales that I want to grab it up. I just love and appreciate all the hard work you put into these posts here. 🙂

  19. All those books are seriously tempting me! I’ve been reading mostly mysteries lately so I’ve been starting to crave romances lately. It’s crazy how fast this year seems to be going by already. I’m completely confused as to what day it is normally! Have a great week!

    • Thank you, Katherine. Yep, this month feels like flying. Can you believe we’re nearing the end of January? I’m not ready. Haha 😁
