    Dear Mr. Brody (For Him #3) by A.M. Johnson

    Release Date: August 5th Wow. This story just made me so darn happy. It has such a hopeful and sweet vibe, but without being mushy or overly sugary. And still, it’s also hot as all get out. It’s such a perfect blend of feelings and naughty I can only say; Congrats Johnson! You really nailed this one. Dear Mr. Brody is a professor-student, age-gap (small one) and bi-awakening story. And it’s positively delicious. Synopsis: Donovan Brody – Van – is newly divorced, a literary agent teaching creative writing as a side-gig. Parker Mills is his student, a gifted writer, and smoking hot. Single for the first time in his adult life,…

    Dark Summer by S.J. Coles

    Release Date: July 27th This is the sequel to Blood Winter – which I thought was rather amazing in a dark and despondent sort of way. Dark Summer has that same almost dystopian feel and it’s all because of Alec’s mood. He’s the sole narrator of the story and thus sets the tone for the entire book. He’s as anti-social as they come and broody as all get out. Borderline depressive actually. Synopsis: The story pretty much starts where Blood Winter ended. Terje has returned and they’re now trying to start a life together. In secret since no one can know that Terje is still alive. Alec’s and Terje’s differences…

    Waylaid (True North #8) by Sarina Bowen

    This is such an awesome read. 4.5 stars! And it intrigued me from the very start. Synopsis: This is the story of Daphne Shipley and Rickie – Dylan Shipley’s roommate/landlord. And there’s so much happening here. Rickie has suffered a mysterious injury leaving him with partial amnesia. Daphne has a psycho ex that’s threatening her and has forced her to relocate to another university. So, naturally, Daphne’s hesitant to trust again and Rickie has issues for miles because of his amnesia. Their growing affection and Rickie’s persistence is just super sweet reading. I must admit, I was really impatient for them to solve their respective “problems” (a.k.a. getting revenge and recovering memories),…

    Wandering a Luminous Sea by Kayleigh Sky

    Release date: July 13th Merik, a merman who’s trying to solve a case with missing mer people, falls for the ex of the guy he suspects being behind all the disappearances. But when he’s started their relationship on a lie, can it ever become the real thing? But instead of coming clean to Jody, Merik’s choice is taken from him when some of the ex’s goons forces Merik back to the sea. How can Jody and Merik ever be together if Merik doesn’t have his legs?  Confession: I’m not particularly fond of mermen. I adore shifter books, but my taste is apparently quite conservative when it comes to what shapeshifting…

    Blood Winter by S.J. Coles

    This is not your average vampire read. In a very good way. I’d say it’s quite unique, with vampires being way more alien and predatory, ruled by their instincts to feed and survive. They’re not savages, but this depiction certainly adds more complexity to the story. Synopsis: Vampires, or heamophiles as they’re called here, have revealed themselves to the human public and tries to integrate into society. The main character, Alec, is somewhat of a recluse, staying away from social events and people in general. And he certainly never expected to attend a blood party where haemophile blood – the most exclusive drug available – is offered as the ultimate…

    C*ckblocked (Blockers #1) by K.C. Cassidy (a.k.a Sierra Hill)

    Release Date: 24th of June The premise for C*ckblocked was really promising. The tv heartthrob, closeted Grayson Darling, goes off to a remote location in Ireland. He wants to stay under the radar – and away from paparazzi – and finish writing his screenplay in peace. Then there’s the grumpy B&B owner/sheep farmer Niall who might not know who Grayson is but he sure inspires many of Niall’s shower time self-loving sessions. Grayson can’t come out without ruining his career, and Niall is afraid to put his heart on the line, again. There were a lot a liked about this read, and also a lot that I didn’t like. And,…

    Not Dead Yet (Not Dead Yet #1) by Jenn Burke

    This story has so much going for it. A living ghost. Witches. Supernatural beings. A murder mystery. And the most delicious thing of all, the ex lovers who are forced together by some shitty circumstances and who may or may not reignite their old spark. So of course I devoured this book. Synopsis: Wes is a Retrieval Specialist (read thief) who uses his special ability to turn ghost as a means to excel at his job. When he witnesses a murder during a break-in, he reaches out to his ex-boyfriend, Detective Hudson Rojas. Hudson is still hot AF, but any thoughts Wes might have had about maybe rekindling the old…

    Something Wicked by Robin Moray

    This is truly a little gem. Quick, super sweet and with an unpredictable (in most ways) plot containing witches, a warlock and a witch-hunter. It might be the ultimate enemies-to-lovers scenario; Kevin is a witch – albeit a very weak one – and Peter is the witch-hunter who arrives in Kevin’s hometown hunting for a witch who murdered his mentor. And they are immediately drawn to each other. Peter thinks all witches are evil, but Kevin can’t stay away. He doesn’t really even want to. Meanwhile, Kevin’s siblings (a.k.a. his coven) is trying to find the warlock who appears to kill other witches within their territory. With all the magic…

    Prince’s Master (Calluvia’s Royalty #4) by Alessandra Hazard

    For quite a while, I really thought Hazard had blown it with this book. The story didn’t sweep me away in the same way the first three books did. But it’s worth hanging in there, it really is. Synopsis: Eridan was rescued as a child from an assassination attempt and has been raised in High Hronthar by an order of telepathic monks. He’s unaware of his true identity as the second prince of the Fifth Grand Clan. He only knows that he’s been claimed as an apprentice by the most powerful man in the Order, Castien Idhron. Castien doesn’t deal in feelings. He’s manipulative, without scruples and he will use…

    Communion (On My Knees #3) by Ella James

    I’m so conflicted right now. The first two books in this series blew me away. I was so overwhelmed by all the feels it wasn’t even funny. But this third installment… I don’t know what to think. But first, I must be clear about that no matter my feelings (which are all over the place at the moment), this is a very well-written story with the most engaging of topics. And it’s steamy like you wouldn’t believe (maybe even too much so). Also, I’m totally in love with the cover. It’s gorgeous in an I’d-love-to-hang-it-on-my-wall kind of way. Synopsis: Luke, a pastor in the megachurch Evermore, has come out as…
