Hey Peps!! We decided to make a "Top 10 Reads so far this year". We hope you take a look and maybe even pick up one of the books.
ANGIE J'S BOOKS IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER
Bullet by Jade C. Jamison
I loved how emotional intense and raw this book was. The book shows how addiction can ruin a relationship and person as well. I can't hear Bruno Mars "If i was your man" without crying!!!! This book I read in March and i am still in my hangover!!!
Skin by Kylie Scott
The world of a zombie apocalypse never looked so true to life like the way Kylie portrays it. Humans will do anything to be with others and anything to survive....like maybe buying a female with a van load of food from other people???? yup that is how this story starts!!!
A Beautiful Lie by Tara Sivec
This book was an amazing plot of twist and turns and betrayals. I thought I had it figured out and then BOOM I was wrong!!! Tara totally kicked my expectations out of the water.........
Love Realized by Melanie Codina
I loved the family dynamic in the story. I also loved how sweet Jake in to Gillian when he finally gets his chance at his dream girl. Jake is determined to have his chance with the love of his life.
Brie Learns the Art of Submission
by Red Phoenix
The trials and tribulations of Brie as she learns what it takes to be a true submissive and find the Master of her hearts and dreams. Be ready to fall in love with multiple Doms while she travels through her training time.
2 strangers with the same common problem....a "split personality". His is a killer and hers is a insatiable Lolita. Can these two make it long enough to find out who is doing this to them? I laughed my butt off while reading this book and man oh man was the sex steamy!!! for all you Black Dagger readers.....Mitch is modeled after a certain Glowing hand Demi God!!!!! *shows fang* also my hellren!!!
Keeping Secrets in Seattle by
Best Friends who are in love but have a terrible "lie" that separates them....can they ever admit their feelings before HE marries the wrong girl? The intensity was off the charts thick!!! I loved Vi because she was sooo "cool" and a type of girl I would wanna be friend with.
Diamond Girl by Andrea Smith
How in the hell do you go wrong with a bad boy biker and bored housewife turned pole dancer? Seriously this book was amazing and the plot twists were defo something I never expected!!!
Reapers Property by Joanna Wylde
So another naught biker boy named horse and YES that is the why of it ladies. He falls for a girl who totally rebuffs him. But being Mr. Alpha he wont let her go. This book is a riot and sooo hawt!
Off Series by Sawyer Bennett
This is book 3 of the series and totally hot but the other two (Off Sides and Off Limits) are amazing in sexual chemistry as well. Sawyer hits on all the 'flaws" of the characters and makes you love them all the more at the end of the story.
JO-ANNA'S BOOKS IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER:
I have to choose 10 books from the books I have read this year?? Oh gosh. This is going to be hard. Now I'm going to post individual books but if it's a series and I read them all this year and I love them all the same then I'll post all of them. :)

Desert Rice and Desert Flower by Angela Scott: As soon as I finished the first page of the first book I was HOOKED! These books are FANTASTIC and if you love a good emotional read, READ THESE BOOKS!
Lover At Last by J.R. Ward: You should start from the very beginning and read the rest of the books first before this one but once you do, you'll be thankful. This is my favorite of the series so far!

***ANGIE E'S FAVS OF THE YEAR***
(in NO particular order, because I'm indecisive)
A Beautiful Lie bye TE Sivec
This book was AMAZEBALLS !!!! It had me soooooo confused but totally in a great way... I loved it because it kept me consistently wondering WHO, WHAT, WHERE, HOW, AND OMG WASN'T THAT WAS FREAKING HOT !!!! Tara really surprised me with this one. She showed true writing talent.
Because of You by TE Sivec
This is the 2nd book of the Playing With Fire Series by TE Sivec. Once again... Tara ROCKED my world with the twist in this book as well as the first one. Just when you THINK YOU KNOW... YOU HAVE NO IDEA =) . Kudos again to a book that kept me on edge with the who's, what's, hows and wow that was a HOT SCENE.
Falling Into You by Jasinda Wilder
This was THE MOST emotional read of the year for me. I knew what was coming. I read the blurb but still it doesn't lessen the blow any. This book was a differnet genre for Jasinda and like most people I was unsure at first. SHE DID IT!!! SHE ROCKED IT !!! like nobody else. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down.. NOW.. if only the next book would hurry and come out...*sigh* I'm so impatient
Wounded by Jasinda Wilder
So this book was NOTHING like I expected it to be. It was dark, twisted, violent and BEAUTIFUL. Yep the story within all the violence and darkness was absolutely beautiful. I loved getting lost in this book. Jasinda once again amazed me with this one . It was unlike anything else I had read of hers.
Relentless by Cassia Leo
This is book one of the Shattered Hearts Series and HOLY CRAP ! This book was so great. I was glued to it. It was one of those I"M READING FEND FOR YOURSELF FAMILY BOOKS... I couldn't do anything but read. I was so into the lives of Claire, Adam and Chris. I mean I literally had DREAMS of this book. It was always on my mind. This was my first book of Cassia's and definately not the last.
Pieces Of You by Cassia Leo
After reading Relentless I CRAVED this book. Like I needed to know then what was gonna happen next... I even threated Cassia with going into labor early if she DIDNT get me this book..... as the old saying goes.... good things come to those who wait... TRUE STORY... it really did. This was the perfect book to the series. Cassia did such a good job with filling us in and keeping us enthralled with Claire, Adam, and Chris. Now if only book 3 will get here.... I may actually go into early labor if it doesn't come soon this time LOL =)
Lover At Last by JR Ward
I waited sooooo LONG for this book. I was THRILLED to find that Qhuinn and Blay would finally get to tell their story. It was bittersweet though. Part of me liked the going back and forth for them the build up but... the other part was like YES FINALLY THEY ARE TOGETHER AT LAST !!!! There was some major controversy with this book and well for me I LOVED IT ! I thought Ward done a GREAT job in telling their story. There were a few tiny things I would have changed ( more detail in the hot sex scenes) but overall one of my fav or the ENTIRE SERIES !
Reckless by SC Stephens
OMG.....what can I say about this book... KELLAN KYLE.... that sums it up RIGHT? I was heartbroken that this would be THE END of the series. I was praying that like many endings it wouldn't be rushed.... IT WASN"T. It was the perfect ending to a perfect love triangle. I actually fell in love with ALL the characters in this book. I was so ANTI Griffin and yes even Kiera but this book made me love them. So the actual word to sum it up was PERFECT but I still love screaming KELLAN KYLE =)
The Dom With A Safeword by Cari Silverwood, Leia Shaw, Sorcha Black
This was the first in a series. This book had me at the first page. I was HOOKED. I had been looking at this book for a while and really wanted to read it so when we got a request on the blog I JUMPED on it. I was so excited. Then when I found out it was written by 3 authors TOGETHER. I was amazed at how well it all flowed good together. These gals done an AWESOME job.
Break Me by Jo-Anna Walker
This book has NOT been published YET so I can't go into detail. I will say my good friend Jo really blew me away with her FIRST BOOK. I was honored to be a beta reader and so glad I got to meet these characters . This is definately a NOT TO MISS book of this year. Keep an eye out for it to be published soon
So now that you've made it to the bottom of this...... How many did you One-Click!!?? One-Click is a great, yet evil tool!!! As long as my husband doesn't see the bank statement, it's all good!!! Happy Reading Everyone and thanks for reading our blog!! We had such a blast putting this together!
Angie, Angie, Jo-Anna, and Brenda!
