So, the good news: I’m back on my reading kick! Four finished book this week. Squee! (Or should I say smeep?)
Also, I found out that I’m a new member of Cora Carmack’s street team! I’m a ginormous fan, she’s one of my favorite people, and I can’t wait to start doing whatever it is street team members do!
I also joined NetGalley…I was a little unsure since I’ve heard about other bloggers not liking the books they’ve gotten from there. But so far, I’ve read two books and I LOVED them both! Read my review of The Summer of Jake here, and watch out for my review of Alex by Sawyer Bennet next week!
The usual spiel: I find these mostly through newsletters like BookLending.com, BookBub, and BookGorilla, combined with browsing the sale sections of Amazon. I never include a book that I don’t honestly endorse, whether because I read it and liked it or because I genuinely want to read it.
Onto the deals!
Random Acts of Trust by Julia Kent – On Sale for $0.99
Giving up is hard…but giving in is even harder.
When did my life become a demented episode from The Mindy Project?
Moving to Boston to begin grad school meant I was supposed to start a new life — not dig through a past I thought I’d left behind four years ago. But when I saw the poster for Random Acts of Crazy, all I could think about was the drummer, Sam Hinton, the boy I’d loved in high school and who disappeared with my heart.
Who knew I’d become the living version of Magic Mike?
Seeing Amy Smithson at my gig and watching her win a kiss from my bandmate, Liam, was a gut punch. Four years ago we squared off in a high school debate that had higher stakes than we ever imagined, and here I was…wanting what I’d walked away from. Are there too many secrets between us to allow her to trust me again?
And can I trust myself?
The second book in the Random series after the wildly successful New York Times and USA Today bestseller Random Acts of Crazy, Random Acts of Trust is a New Adult romantic comedy that explores the love between one man, one woman, and ends with one Happily Ever After (and no cliffhangers or chickens!). Fate took their lives by storm four years ago and put an unbreachable gulf between Sam and Amy. This 87,000 word/346 page book asks: Can time really heal all wounds…or are some scars too deep?
So I’m actually not sure if I’ve read this one (I have a bunch of books in this incredible series but I’m trying to read them in order, so a bunch are sitting unread on my Kindle), but this is a great reminder to pick the series back up!
Freya Godwin’s creativity has gone MIA.
With Freya just hired to redesign the top adult website company in the country, her muse couldn’t have chosen a worse time to disappear. Determined to get her sexy back, Freya puts an ad online, hoping to find the right man to inspire her.
Unfortunately, all roads point back to her upstairs neighbor Greg Cavanaugh. He’s everything she doesn’t want: a playboy and scumbag lawyer. Except if he’s so wrong for her, why does his touch feel like magic? And why does being with him make her believe anything is possible?
Pulse by Deborah Bladon – On Sale for $0.99
Jessica Roth dumped her boyfriend, moved to New York and wanted desperately to start her new life off with a bang – a literal mind-blowing, soul-shaking night of pure, raw, memory making sex.
She thought her one time chance encounter with attorney, Nathan Moore, in a hotel room would become a jumping point for her exciting, single and adventurous life in the city.
One night turned into two, into four, and into more – always at the same place, always at the same time – no last names, no personal details, and absolutely no complications.
What Jessica doesn’t count on is that in Nathan’s world boundaries are made to be pushed.
He wanted her in ways he promised he never would. She wanted him in ways she couldn’t admit.
When their lives ultimately collide outside the walls of the hotel room, Jessica is forced to face the truth about the only man who has ever made her pulse race and her body ache with unadulterated pleasure.
Wait for You by J. Lynn – On Sale for $1.99
Some things are worth waiting for . . .
Traveling thousands of miles from home to enter college is the only way nineteen-year-old Avery Morgansten can escape what happened at that fateful Halloween party five years ago—an event that forever changed her life. What she never planned on was capturing the attention of the one guy who could shatter the precarious future she’s building for herself.
Some things are worth experiencing . . .
Cameron Hamilton is six feet, three inches of swoon-worthy hotness, com-plete with a pair of striking blue eyes and a remarkable ability to make Avery want things she believed had been irrevocably stolen from her. Getting involved with him is dangerous. Yet ignoring the simmering tension that sparks between them—and brings out a side of her she never knew existed—is impossible.
Some things shouldn’t be kept quiet . . .
But when Avery starts receiving threatening e-mails and phone calls, she’s forced to face a past she wants to keep buried and acknowledge that someone is refusing to allow her to let go of that night when everything changed. If the devastating truth comes out, will she resurface with one less scar? And will Cam be there to help her?
And some things are worth fighting for . . .
