Latest Book News and Recap

Hi, everyone, how are you? I hope your weekend is great. Last week was a hectic one for me. I was behind in reading and updating blog because I had to take care of the administration stuff of the school. As I said last week, I’ll be back in school next week, continuing my study. I’m preparing everything and trying to think about the effective ways to manage my time. I don’t want my blog to suffer. Thank you for your love and support. Sorry, I was late to visit you all last week.

This week, I’m planning to do a blog ahead since it is the last week before the school starts. I’m planning to read all four new books I got last week and review it so when the school starts I will at least be a little bit ahead with blog posts. That’s all from me. I hope you all have a wonderful week!

But the country has recently been ravaged by a massive earthquake and deadly tsunami, shutting down outside communication and making travel all but impossible. Still, Olivia is determined to make it to Colombia to find the answers she so desperately seeks. What she needs is a guide—a mercenary. 

The man named Thomas arrives in shadows, an unmistakable air of danger about him, promising to help lead her through the ruined, crime-infested country.

Then again, in the lush jungles of South America, all the rules are different and Thomas and Olivia are about to discover that sometimes the thing you seek, isn’t necessarily the thing you find.

Don't Go (For You) by [Riley, Alexa]Don’t Go (For You) by Alexa RileyStandalone, insta-love, contemporary romanceBuy on Amazon

CEO Henry Osbourne has only ever desired one woman—the one who got away.

I’ve spent the past ten years convincing myself that what I felt for her was teenage infatuation. That love so consuming couldn’t be real. Then everything went to shit, and in an instant, she was gone.

Kory Summers knew returning to New York meant running into Henry. The way her heartbeat picked up at just the thought was nervousness—not anticipation. Oh, no. She never expected to find him on her doorstep looking as handsome as ever.

She’s mine. She always has been. I’ve waited this long for her…but time’s up. I’ll use all my power, all my connections, to convince her she’s the one. 

Kory ran from a boy, but a man of power and persuasion now stands in his place. 

Ryan’s Bed by TijanStandalone, adult, contemporary romanceBuy on Amazon

I crawled into Ryan Jensen’s bed that first night by accident. I barely knew him. I thought it was his sister’s bed–her room. It took seconds to realize my error, and I should’ve left… 
I didn’t. 
I didn’t jump out. 
I didn’t get embarrassed. 
I relaxed. 
And that night, in that moment, it was the only thing I craved. 
I asked to stay. He let me, and I slept. 
The truth? I never wanted to leave his bed. If I could’ve stayed forever, I would have. He became my sanctuary. 
Because–four hours earlier–my twin sister killed herself.

I’m determined to get back to where I was. For you to hear my name again. I’ve finally convinced the owner of Team Domination to take a chance and get me back in fighting—and winning—shape. What I didn’t bargain for is the guy’s spitfire of a daughter. Factor in her two professional-fighter brothers who are acting as my coaches and the fact that my career hangs in the balance, and Brooklyn’s the last girl I should be fantasizing about.

The closer we get, the more I want Brooklyn. The stakes are high, and I know there’s a big chance of both of us getting hurt, but I won’t stop until she’s mine.

Shiver by [Wright, Suzanne]Shiver by Suzanne WrightStandalone, contemporary, romantic suspense Buy on Amazon

Kensey Lyons has never had ‘normal’. Instead, she has a mother who lives in her head, a stepfather who’s on death row, and the stigma that comes with being the child of an extramarital affair. Writing has always been her escape. Knowing the reception her books receive will be tainted by her personal life, Kensey secretly writes under a penname when she’s not working part-time at her godmother’s bar. Her world might not be exciting, but she likes it exactly as it is.

When she meets alarmingly compelling businessman Blake Mercier, the snap of attraction is instant. She doesn’t like it. Doesn’t want to be drawn to this man who is blatantly dangerous, carries dark secrets, and lives life by his own rules. Neither of them make a great first impression on the other, so she’s more than surprised when he begins to pursue her with a single-minded focus that is unsettling, thrilling, and infuriating. Her gut tells her to keep her distance, but Blake won’t let her run. Won’t give her space. 

There’s another person who won’t give her space. Someone who has discovered the secret of her penname and who seems intent on taunting her. And as Kensey struggles to identify her persecutor, Blake is by her side, determined to keep her safe … because Blake Mercier always holds tight to what’s his. Always.

The kind of thrilling, reckless trouble I could use a little more of since my career is currently ass-backward in a mud bath with six shih-tzus (don’t ask).

So do I:
a) Take the job, and bicker wildly every step of the way?
b) Embark on a mad-cap treasure hunt to claim his billion-dollar inheritance?

d) All of the above?

xo, Zach by [Ryan, Kendall]xo, Zach by Kendall RyanStandalone, adult, contemporary romanceBuy on Amazon

The first time we met was at a party. Your ex arrived to show off the person he’d left you for last month, and you asked me to pretend to be your date. I was more than happy to help. You were attractive, smart and witty–and that kiss we shared? It left me wanting you for days. 

The second time we met was in my office on campus where we were both surprised to discover you were the new master’s degree student in poetry that I would be working with. You promised to be professional. I did no such thing. The late nights and intense study sessions spent alongside you majorly throw me off my game. I want you, and I fight with myself daily over this fact.

I know I’m crass, that my sexual innuendos and dirty mouth annoy you, but I live for those two bright spots of color in your cheeks. If that’s the only reaction I can get out of you, I’ll gladly take it. You hate Mondays so every Monday I slip an anonymous poem into your bag and your smile gets me through the week. I think I’m falling for you, and I know it’s wrong. I know that I’m only supposed to be the adviser to your program and nothing more, but here’s the thing. I think you’re falling for me too.

xo, Zach

She Asked for It by [Winters, Willow]She Asked For It by Willow WintersStandalone, contemporary romanceBuy on Amazon

Don’t judge a book by its cover.
You’ll tell me you don’t… but you already think you know what my story’s about.

You have no idea.
Just like the people sitting in this courtroom.
She asked for it. That’s what they keep saying.

And no, it’s not because my skirt was too short or I was drunk at a party.
It’s nothing like that. It’s because of what I like and how I like it.

They’re judging me as I sit in the front row, my eyes drawn to the man on trial.
If I’d known it was going to end like this, I never would have gone home with him.
But he’s the type of man I just can’t say no to.

I wanted to feel his lips kiss down my neck.
I dreamed of running my fingers along the rough stubble on his jaw.
I craved his hands on me, pinning me down.
I needed to whisper his name in the dark, late at night.

You still think you know what happened? You don’t.
He’s innocent and I enjoyed every second I was with him.
Let me tell you my story, all about how I asked for it.

Respect: An Infidelity series Novel by [Romig, Aleatha]Respect by Aleatha RomigStandalone, contemporary, mafia romanceBuy on Amazon

Standing at what I believe is the precipice of my life, I, Oren Demetri, was too young to understand that it wasn’t and too old to imagine that it couldn’t be. 

The already hefty accumulation of my successes and failures, bravery and fears, and rewards and suffering had brought me to this point. It was hard to contemplate the things I’d done, and yet, in reality, I’d only begun to learn the possibilities. 

I suppose that’s how it was for me at twenty-nine years of age on the brink of all I’d ever wanted without fully realizing the price I would pay. Yet in that moment, I knew there would be no cost too great or sacrifice I wouldn’t make. I had no idea how far-reaching that moment of self-discovery would be; because as the congregation’s murmurs quieted, bleeding into silence and allowing the thump of my heart to be the only sound I heard, I was a man filled with love and adoration, emotions in stark contrast to those I needed in the world I’d built or the one I was about to enter. 

Angelina Costello was my dream and now my reality. I’d worked diligently to move beyond the actuality of being a dockworker’s son to becoming a self-made, successful entrepreneur, all in an effort to earn the right to call her my own. I’d overcome servitude to others, collecting their paychecks and lowly praises, to being the one who signed the paychecks and offered the accolades when they were rightfully earned. 

The world was my oyster and walking toward me on the arm of her uncle was my pearl. I’d found her amongst the empty shells life had offered. There was no need to pry open another possibility. Angelina was all I wanted. Yet my path was uncharted. There was more for me to earn, lose, and willingly give. The top of that list was respect.

    Have a great week, and good luck with your first week back at school! Hope it goes well. Some nice 1.99 YA deals too… both Illuminae books? wow. 🙂

    • Thank you, Greg. Yep, I already bought the first book when it was first on sale. Need to read it ASAP. 😁❤️
      Have a wonderful week too.

    Hope all goes okay with your school things. I just got the ARC of Midnight Valentine today. Can’t wait to read it. Have to finish Keep Her Safe first. Hope you enjoy all your ARCs! Have a great weekend!

    I definitely need to start scheduling ahead. I had to leave off a post this past week because I got suddenly sick (like a 24 hour thing) so yeah, I need to work on that. LOL It happens though. We all understand.


  4. I just bought NeverNever on Amazon!! Thank you!!! I love bookish deals and I’ve been wanting to give a book by Colleen Hoover a go for a while now so this could not have come at a better time. Also go you for getting ahead with blog posts! I never am… whoops!

    Awesome post 🙂 You’ve forced me to buy a book and you’ve made me jealous of your scheduling so you did good lol

    • Thank you, Lara. I’ve never blogged ahead (never succeeded so far) but I need to. It’s hard when you’re a slow reader. 🙈😁

  5. I’m sure you’ll be able to organize your time between school and blogging just fine – it might take you a couple of weeks to get used to it, but then you’ll be good!
    You really need to get your hands on both Keep Her Safe and About That Kiss next week, Geybie. I’m sure you’ll love both!
    Good luck getting ahead on your blogging! Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

  6. I can’t believe you don’t have Forget Me Not by Willow Winters on your list lol. I saw She Asked for it by Willow Winters. I haven’t read them yet. How do you come up with so many books?

    • Oh you make me curious about Forget Me Not! I’ve never read any book by the author but I’ve heard great things about her work. Need to give it a try. 😁

  7. Vani | Off-Color Literature

    I hope you can stay ahead! I just finished school and it was so difficult for me to manage my time while I was blogging/schooling/working. I wish you luck with your schedule, and have fun at school!

    • Thank you, Vani. I’m worried about it. I’m not sure I’ll manage to keep the blog afloat while both working and studying. The blog itself is so much time-consuming. How did you make it work?

  8. I know exactly what you mean. I’ve been out of work since the beginning of the year. I’ve been trying to read and blog ahead as much as I can. I’m starting a new job on Monday. I’m happy that I’m ahead so that I can not feel stressed about reviews as I get the hang of the new job. Good luck with your studies.

  9. I need to start Crownover’s new series. I know I have the first book (may have even bought the second one). I have been hearing good things, and I usually love her books. I guess I blog ahead. I have been writing my reviews right after I finish the book, so those are ready to go. On Saturday and Sunday, I write my posts for the week, but I only have reviews further ahead. Good luck back at school!

    • Oh you have no idea how envy I am. I’ve been trying to Blog ahead for a year. I need to be more focused and use the weekend to concentrate on the blog posts. Lots of things going on in the weekend that it’s hard to focus only on one thing sometimes. Thank you for sharing. 😁❤️

    • Oh same here. I haven’t been successful for a year. I’ve tried to Blog ahead since last year. It’s turned out to be way difficult than I thought it would be.

    • I have one of her books but haven’t read it yet. Yep same here. I’ve heard great things about hers from other bloggers, Nai. So curious. 😁❤️

  10. Michelle P

    These Sunday posts are seriously becoming dangerous to my TBR List! 😉
    I need to do a blog ahead which is why I am glad a bloggiesta (which is a blogging event) is the first weekend in feb and to catch up on my reading I am thinking of doing 24in48 🙂

    I hope you have an awesome week, Geybie! Happy Reading! ox
    *scrolls back up to shop books*

    • Oh wow, sounds like a great event. Good luck! I hope you manage to create many. I’m seriously in a dire need to do it but I have no time. 🙈

  11. Beware Of The Reader

    Fantastic post as always Geybie! You must tak hours to put all these books with their links here! WOW

    • Haha.. yep, it’s so time consuming but not as hard as it seems to be. Reading and writing reviews are way challenging for me especially this month with the school staff need to be taken care of. Happy reading, my friend. ❤️❤️❤️

  12. So many great covers and books here! I haven’t yet read any of the authors that you received review copies for but the books all look great! I hope you enjoy them all. Happy reading!

    • Jezz de Silva is an amazing author, Sam. You need to try his “Against All Odds” if you love romance. It’s awesome! ❤️😁

    • Let’s hope this week is better for us reading-wise. It’s been good so far, I hope I can manage to review two books. ❤️😁

  13. Best of luck when back at school – it’s always a balance trying to keep the blog going as it does soak up the time, doesn’t it? Have a great week, Geybie:)

  14. carolesrandomlife

    Going back to school is exciting. I know you will do well. I think it is great that you can spend this week getting ahead so that things will be a little less stressful once you do start classes. Lots of great new books this week! Have a wonderful week, Geybie!

  15. You have such a great post of releases and book sales. We do have some great ones coming out, I always save my money for the end of the month because that is when I buy all the books. thanks for sharing.

  16. Enjoy your new life adventure, going back to school 🙂 Don’t stress about having things updated here, it’s suppose to be fun. Thank you once again for posting these sales, it is a lot of work.

    • Yep, that’s what I always remind myself. It’s supposed to be fun. But I’ve been maintaining this blog for one year so it’s hard to see it abandoned. 🙈😁

  17. Enjoy your first week of class! I’m sure it’s going to be a great week – are you going to be in a classroom or is it a virtual program? I always loved getting the class syllabus and meeting new people that first week 🙂 Happy reading, blogging, and studying, Geybie! 🙂

    • It’s a classroom, Monday to Thursday from 5 to 7.30 pm. I have no idea where to fit my fiction reading and blog updates on those days. 🙈😁

  18. wulfluva

    Wow! You’ve got some serious romance books going on here. I’ve been thinking about getting back into contemporary romance, and now I know where to look for some new reads. 😉

    Thanks for visiting Shell’s Stories!

  19. Hope you are able to get the things ready before you start school. Don’t worry about keeping up with the blog if you need time for school. We will understand. Meanwhile – Happy Reading!

  20. Good luck getting some posts scheduled before school goes back 🙂 I should be doing that too, but I keep putting it off (I have another month to go though!)

    I hope you enjoy your new reads, have a great week!

    • Thank you, Wattle. I haven’t manage to get ahead of blog posts yet which is frustrating. I hope I can manage at least one post ahead this week.

  21. Kathy Martin

    Nice bunch of books. Good luck getting ahead so that school won’t disrupt too much. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  22. All the best for back to study. I admire you for studying and blogging. I just finished Deep Work and thought it had some good ideas.

    • Yay, glad to hear that you read it too. Oh, it’s awesome. It’s inspiring me so much. 😁❤️👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

  23. As someone who has blogged for ten years let me tell you it’s okay to blog at your own speed when life gets busy. Have a good week!

    • Thank you so much, Mary. Yep, it is what I always reminds myself. It’s hard though. It feels as if I’m abandoning my baby. I’ve taken care of it for one full year non-stop. 🙈😁

    • Yep, it sounds awesome!!! It’s calling my name, along with The Seek by Mia Sheridan and the new K.A. Tucker’s new release. 😁❤️

  24. A hectic week like all the hectic weeks, for me too xD but you know, I’ve decided to take it slowly and post less on the blog. I need some time off…

    I hope you can settle into a more comfortable schedule with school too 🙂 have a wonderful week!

    • Oh, I know it must be hard for you to ‘abandon’ your baby even though it’s just a little bit. I feel guilty sometimes. 🙈😁

  25. Jenea

    Good luck with your school this week!!! Thank you stopping by my Sunday Post and your kind words too. They meant a lot. 😘

  26. Good luck returning to school Geybie, hope it goes swimmingly well! So many bargains this week. I’ll have to swap my Kindle country to the US to pick a few of these up. I tried reading the Iron Fey series years ago but couldn’t get into it at the time. Really keen to give it another try. Have a wonderful week Geybie and best of luck with school! <3
