This originally started out (a month ago, ha!) as an Indie Friday event, but just to be contrary I decided to move it to the last Saturday of the month so we could leave Fridays open for Indie/Small Press/Self-Pub reviews, author posts and giveaways.
While we’ll share the books that made an impression on us during the month, we’d really love to hear what you read that you want to get the word out about too – so chime in and let us know, we love recommendations.
I read about my usual number of Indie books this month and a couple were duplicates of authors I’ve already recommended. There are some new books that I think are worth trying though.
Our journey began in fire…
Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness—beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me…Read More
Touted as “like 50 Shades of Gray but better,” this is pretty hot with fascinating characters. Day is a traditionally published author who went self-pub for this one but the rest of the series has been picked up – the talk is right, this is like 50 Shades, but better.
For Tobin and Delia, everything was always equal.
A bargain, a trade, a deal to be struck.
A kiss for a kiss.
Your shirt for mine.
Break my heart, I’ll break yours.
Their disastrous split was no different…Read More
I’ve already featured Jolene Perry with her own book, Knee Deep, but Stephanie Campbell is new. She wrote the voice of Tobin in this one. This is just a little story about lovers trying to figure out what went wrong but the way the two authors worked together to create Delia and Tobin’s story made it really work for me. My Review
Courtesy of watching his mom’s relationships, Sebastian Hawkins knows what girls need to do to get a guy. He has what he considers a PHD in hooking up. When he needs extra cash for a car, Sebastian starts up an online venture as The Hook-up Doctor, to anonymously help girls land the guy of their dreams…Read More
Well I just reviewed and recommended it so this one’s a no brainer. I love the characters, the way the author really got what it was like to be a teenager and had the attitude down. The romance was sweet and angsty and I’m so on board for the next book. My Review
In June, I have a nice list of books that I’m hoping to read including Oppression by Jessica Thierren, Until Next Time by Amy Lignor and Darkride by Laura Bradley Rede. The sequel to What A Boy Wants, What A Boy Needs is out in June, so I’ll be adding that one too.
Have you read anything great this past month? Anything coming up you’re excited about?
