Top Picks is a weekly meme that we do here at Scorching Book Reviews. In this post, I highlight the Romance books that I want to read that are released this week.
They are all books on my TR pile and only books we are interested in spending money on. I do not ask people to recommend books or highlight releases for author promo.
I feel I have to point out that books in a series are only going to be featured on here if I have started the series. I can’t recommend a series at book 14 when I haven’t read the others. I also don’t read NA…
Also, the design of the site is in progress … Please be patient!
Status on the TR list : I love Anne Rainey. She writes hot, angsty romance’s that never fail to deliver for me. On the list.
Repairing this house could cost him everything…
Maddox Stone’s construction company is barely hanging on by a nail thanks to the new guy in town taking all his business. If Maddox hopes to save his company he’ll need a lucrative job and fast. When Beth Donner hires him to remodel her grandmother’s old Victorian he leaps at the chance. But it isn’t long before his mind is on more than siding and shingles. Beth tugs at him in ways he’s never felt before. But it’s going to take all his patience to get past Beth’s wounded heart.
After Beth Donner is viciously attacked by a mugger that left her face scarred for life, her husband considers her damaged goods and dumps her. She’s more than ready to retreat from the pain of life. Inheriting her grandmother’s old mansion in the gorgeous town of Silverlake, Ohio seems like the perfect place to escape.
Her first order of business is to hire Maddox to restore the regal beauty. Having the rugged man around is doing wonders for her battered self-esteem, but there’s someone in Silverlake with a more sinister plan for her.
Soon, Beth finds herself immersed in a forty-year-old mystery, a very persistent ghost and a past that refuses to stay buried.
Status on the TR List : The reviews for this book have been pretty great and I have read much of her work … on the list!
Roaring back from a life-threatening injury, he has the world at his skates as defenseman for his new team, the Chicago Rebels. Everyone adores his big personality, his on-ice talent, and his killer smile. Everyone but his prickly neighbor–or so he thinks. One chilly Christmas Eve, Theo will learn that maybe the girl next door isn’t such a hater after all …
Elle Butler is the most embarrassing person on the planet.
How else can the ex-military-now-bartender explain her crush on the hot jock who lives across the hall? True, he has gorgeous green eyes and perfect cheekbones, but the filter between his brain and too-sexy mouth is permanently malfunctioning. Yet she can’t stop checking out his Instagram antics or sneaking looks at him when he’s in her bar. Absolutely mortifying. Running from a past filled with damning secrets, Elle’s determined that this guilty pleasure remains buried in her deepest fantasies.
Because she couldn’t possibly indulge with the Theo Kershaw. Or make a mistake that draws attention to her under-the-radar life. And she especially couldn’t be a mom to a pro-athlete’s baby … could she?
Status on the TR list : I will read this book. I love that each of the books in this Dark Nights series is a standalone novella which allows people to look into the series – pick up any of these books to see if the rest of the series is for you.
