This is our Top Picks post. In it, I highlight books that take my fancy. This could be because of the author name on the front, the blurb or even the cover (sometimes, that’s all it takes). Please be aware of our new policies regarding books which means that only authors I would spend my money on will appear on here. EDIT … I am no longer using US affiliate links on the site. Any US link you click on posts from today will be buy links but I’ll be making no money from them.
This weeks Top Picks are….
Status on TR List : I have no idea why I like Make-Over stories but I do … I will read this.
A satisfying category romance novella from Entangled’s Lovestruck imprint.
In Vegas, nothing is what it seems…
After losing a bet, successful publisher Michael Chang is “pretending” to play the piano in a Vegas lounge in order to spy on his less-than-trustworthy employee. His espionage is quickly derailed after meeting Thea Danelle, an editor who’s been wronged by Michael’s company. She’s smart and unpredictable…and clearly hiding a naughty side that tempts Michael to distraction.
Thea has gone from frumpy librarian to the young, wild thing she used to be-all thanks to the promise of sensuous delight in the piano player’s eyes. And frankly, after losing yet another author to the competition, Thea is ready to forget her professional problems and explore those sexy promises thoroughly. With Michael, she can finally be herself…until the moment Thea learns who he really is.
Status on TR List :I like this series!! This is on the TR list.
It’s all or nothing, and to the victor go the dirty sweet spoils.
Best Revenge, Book 3
As if buried in their respective DNA, Riley Hewitt and Anson Black have been rivals since grade school. Always trying to one-up the other…until Anson left town right after graduation.
Fast forward a few years. Just as Riley is thinking of expanding her profitable baking business, who should plant his new restaurant right next door but smug, annoying—and, unfortunately, drop-dead-sexy—Anson. Spurred by a large bottle of wine and her two best friends, Riley sets out to get revenge.
Of all the women Anson has known, no one has stirred him—or made him work harder—than Riley. Moving in right under her nose, he’ll be a constant thorn in her side. After all, he’s smart, sexy and successful. What’s not to love?
Much to her chagrin, Riley finds more than her competitive edge coming back to life. So is her libido. But if she lets her heart fall into Anson’s win column, she could lose in more ways than one. And this time around, second place just isn’t going to cut it.
Warning: A smug man needing his comeuppance duels with a baking queen who stirs his passion like nobody’s business. No cupcakes were injured in the making of this romance, but the same can’t be said for the knitting needles.
Status on TR List : I love Cari Quinn and I like the sound of this. It’s on the TR pile.
He won’t stop until she’s his, forever…
When former SEAL Liam Walsh walked away from Abby Sinclair over two years ago, he thought he knew how much he was leaving behind. After a combat injury forces him into medical retirement, he begins to pick up the pieces of his shattered life. First stop: to try reconnect with his estranged younger brother, Slater. He just never imagined the person who would open Slater’s door would be Abby.
Though her relationship with Slater is now strictly platonic, Abby knows how things must look to Liam. In spite of still being hurt by the way he dumped her, she can’t fight her feelings for him, especially when he pulls out the stops to seduce her. Giving him her body is one thing, but that doesn’t mean she’s convinced that he has changed enough for her to risk her heart again.
Time is running out and Liam only has one weekend to prove to Abby that he’s ready to be the man she needs. If only they can stop getting horizontal—and vertical—long enough to talk…
Status on TR List : I’ve only read a few books from Molly Harper (Geo-restrictions….bleugh!) but I love them.
In the next book in Molly Harper’s beloved Half Moon Hollow paranormal romance series, Gigi starts her first job (at Vampire Headquarters), gets over her first love, and may even fall for her first vampire!
Gigi is no longer an innocent teen. All grown up and looking for love, her family and friends worry she’ll go for the sexy, alluring vampire instead of a nice, safe human. But sexy and alluring, with a penchant for biting, could be just what Gigi wants…
