Tons of new releases this week. Check out some of the highlights, along with a few of our reviews!
“My name is Annie Hamilton. I’m an American citizen. I was kidnapped from a cruise ship five years ago. You’re my last hope. Please save me.”
One desperate plea. This wasn’t a Hollywood blockbuster or a New York Times best-selling thriller. I knew that this time there was no room for excuses, no margin for errors. I had one chance to put the cape on and be her hero.

”After everything that’s happened, the rise and the fall, the pain and the aftermath, can these two navigate the waters of acute regret, survive the trials of coming face to face with all that they have lost, and find the strength to try again?”
- Bad Things (Tristan and Danika #1)
- Rock Bottom (Tristan and Danika #2)
- Lovely Trigger (Tristan and Danika #3)
“When I met Kiersten, time stood still. It was as if every cell in my body screamed HER. I couldn’t look away, I couldn’t walk away, I couldn’t even move. My other half, my soul mate, was staring right at me. I had to have her. I had to make her mine. But I felt selfish doing that–knowing that I may not have endless amounts of time to give her…and even now that every things’ over with and I’ve been given that time back.
Nothing is ever certain in this life.
Which is why I’m about to do something crazy, impulsive, daring.
After all, what type of person would I be if I didn’t take my own advice?
I’m jumping off the cliff, I’m living fearlessly.
This is the continuation of Wes and Kierstens story.”
Fearless is a novella that takes place AFTER book two in the series. While each story is a standalone, you should read them in order.
“Camryn Hamilton is a fighter. Holden Patrick will fight harder. But are they willing to fight for each other.”

“Sinners at the Altar includes four complete wedding stories, each about a different member of the rock band Sinners. These novellas are intended to be read after the Sinners on Tour series as each story is an epilogue to a different book in the series and thus riddled with major spoilers for not only individual books, but in some cases, the entire series”
“Three fateful encounters…. Two heart-breaking tragedies…. One last chance to get it right.”
This is the conclusion of Jax and Gia’s story that began in Afterburn.
“Join the Cage family as they embark on yet another one of life’s journeys with a rambunctious four-year-old, pregnancy complications, and the fear of the unknown. Will the love that Greg and Melissa share hold true as they fight to overcome the obstacles that face them?”
This is a novella that takes place after the third installment in the Corps Security series. While each book is a standalone, you should read them in order.
“K.A. Linde’s Record series begins with a sleek, sexy, and smart venture into a high-stakes political campaign and an even higher-stakes affair that, in the end, will leave you wanting more with one of Linde’s gripping cliffhangers.”
“I was young enough not to understand that my life was different. Colin became the one person that I could count on to protect me. He suffered for the both of us by carrying the burden of our secret.
We were the lucky few that got a chance to start over. A fake family, a new home and a pretty little life built on lies. But while our lives continued to intertwine, we were put on very different paths. Now it was only a matter of time before they collide and the beast behind the beauty is exposed.”
“Walker Rhodes is a hot singing sensation who never settles down, spends too much money gambling and gets in trouble on the daily- at least if you believe all the tabloids.
Madison Myers is a hard working talent agent assistant thrust into the spotlight one day after Walker pulls her on stage during one of his concerts. She tries to stay away from him, but he keeps chasing her. He is relentless in his pursuit. The question is… WHY?!?! Tabloid Headline Reads: Walker Rhodes pulls woman on stage during LA concert and serenades her with stars in his eyes and we watched as the sparks flew! But just who is this mystery woman who has stolen Walker’s heart? And will she be the one to finally tie down our favorite womanizing gambler?”
I am currently reading book one in this series, “Incomplete”. More to come on this series soon!!
Camryn Hamilton and Holden Patrick have been best friends and neighbors since they were little kids. After sharing a magical kiss, they both realized their friendship had been elevated to the next level.
“ ‘I guess this changes things for us,’ he had said quietly as he pressed his forehead against mine with his eyes looking up at me through his long, dark eyelashes.
‘I guess it does,’ I answered, knowing I didn’t need to say anything more.”
Thus began a relationship that all felt was unbreakable…. Until one night when Camryn’s idyllic life was shattered.
The story unfolds over a series of time, which I loved. I prefer when relationships build in books and don’t become instant overnight. A real relationship takes work, and S.P. Cervantes recognized that and allows the story unfold slowly and organically. Dust to Dust was not without its mysteries and plot twists. It all came together well and you felt as if you were along on this ride with Cam and Holden. I am a sucker for second-chance love stories and this one delivered!
“We were both broken Camryn, and I know that scares you. But we can still have the fairy tale.”
Toxic is book two in the Ruin series. I have to admit, I was a bit nervous about reading this one because of the catatonic state I was left in after reading Ruin. How could one move on after that? I don’t think I started a new book for three days, and for a girl that reads a book a day, that was a long time.
There was a lot to like about Gabe in Ruin. He was a loyal friend, a loving cousin to Lisa and brought a lot of the funny to the story line. I was looking forward to delving into his background and finding out what his “secret” was.
Wes’ outcome in Ruin changed Gabe. Gone was the man who drank himself into a stupor each night and went home with a different girl. Wes’s survival changed him, made him want to be a better man. That is, until he meets Saylor.
Saylor forces Gabe to feel emotions that he hasn’t felt since her.
“It was just a door. But beyond that door? Was not just a girl.”
Saylor is taken by Gabe from the moment their paths cross. He causes her to want to scream at him and kiss him in the same breath.
“Funny, how people always say they want second chances yet had I given one. I would have traveled down the same road. Every. Single. Time.”
In the midst of a serious story line, Van Dyken always makes room for the humor. When the whole gang was together, their chemistry just flowed off the pages. I would be laughing at one line, and crying at the next. Wes and Gabe’s relationship was one of the best “bromances” I have read. They always had each other’s backs, and not in a flowery way, but in a “get it together before I kick your ass way.”
I don’t want to give away any of the plot, because there definitely are a lot of surprises, twists and secrets. While I did not get bogged down by the in the ugly cry I did in Ruin, Toxic was no less fantastic. I was captivated from the moment I started the prologue and read it straight though in one sitting. While Toxic is a standalone, I would have been a bit lost on some of the background had I not read Ruin. Do yourself a favor…find a quiet spot and start this book now. You will be glad you did.
Here are some standouts from this weeks new releases. Definite One-Click material!
“Colton has healed and completed me, stolen my heart, and made me realize our love’s not predictable nor perfect—it’s bent. And bent’s okay. But when outside factors put our relationship to the test, what lengths will I have to go to prove to him that he’s worth the fight?”
Toxic – Rachel Van Dyken (The Ruin Series Book 2)
Toxic is a new release from Rachel Van Dyken that follows Gabe, a secondary character from Ruin (one of my favorites from this year.) Gabe now gets to tell his own story.
“Gabe Hyde is on borrowed time. He’s been hiding his identity for over four years-hidden from the world that used to adore him–obsess over him–driven to the edge of insanity by one poor choice. But that one choice, altered the course of his life forever.
Pretending isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, especially when pretending means hiding your real self from the people that care about you the most. But if anyone ever discovered the truth it wouldn’t just be his life at risk–but hers.”
This follow up novella begins after the ending of Sweet Thing.
“Life is pure bliss for Mia and Will. They have a puppy, a loft in Brooklyn, and a new music studio on the rise. It seems things couldn’t get any better for this talented couple when life decides to throw them a sweet little curve ball.”
NEW DEBUT! This will be a series of interconnected stories about five brothers living in Malroy, Alabama. I cannot WAIT to dive into this one!!
From the blurb “The Sutton Boys” – those three words bring a smile to the faces of females of all ages in the small town of Malroy, Alabama. Five brothers who help their momma run their farm during the work week, while seeing how many women they can sweet talk out of their panties on the weekends.
Each brother has a story and just like with all families and small towns, their stories twist together into a tangled mess that changes each of their lives forever. Because for each brother there will come a moment when he has to make a decision to keep playing or finally become a man.
The next installment will be released in three weeks, then every three weeks after that.
The fourth book in this amazing series from Raine Miller.
From the blurb: “….. Ethan and Brynne, two damaged souls fighting for a hard-won love, and now the promise of a new hope to secure their happily ever after. Fresh from an idyllic honeymoon along the Italian coast, the Blackstones prepare for the birth of their precious baby while facing the challenges of settling into a new home and married life. But when specters from the past resurface, so do their lingering doubts. Fears about those things they struggle to understand about each other, threaten the very foundation of their relationship.”
