Forever and a Duke by Grace Burrowes is $1.99! This is a Kindle Daily Deal and features a heroine who’s good with numbers. Readers really liked her, but found there was too much plot and too many additional POVs. Have you read this one?
The Book of M by Peng Shepherd is $1.99! This is a character-driven, near future sci-fi novel. One of my favorite book buddies say this is a book that starts of strongly, but drags around the middle. However, the writing seemed to be a major high point.
Much Ado About Jack by Christy English is $2.99! I really like this cover. The model has a great sense of…presence. This is the third book in the Shakespeare in Love series. The first book is currently free and the second one is only $1.99. Many reviewers mentioned that those reading this as a standalone may be taking a risk since past characters make a frequent appearance, while others felt this historical was well-researched.
His Dark Magic by Pat Esden is 99c! I mentioned this in this month’s Hide Your Wallet and if you were excited about it like I was, you can grab it for less than a buck! Readers thought this was a great start to a new series, while others thought the romance and fantasy balance was a bit skewed.
RECOMMENDED: The Princess Bride by William Goldman is $2.99 at Amazon! Goldman passed away on the 16th, so my guess is that this sale isn’t coincidental. This is a special illustrated edition of the book and the new cover looks absolutely gorgeous. Though, of course, because it’s illustrated, readers may want a hard copy of this rather than a digital one. We also recently ran a Squee from the Keeper Shelf review of The Princess Bride.
After putting down several books out of disinterest, I can proudly say that Mister Hockey was the one to break that pattern. It was funny and sexy and I really enjoyed both main characters. However, what kept the book from really knocking it out of the park was the narrative’s aversion to really getting down and dirty with the serious issues the hero and heroine were facing. Briana “Breezy” Angel is a children’s librarian and … Continue reading Mister Hockey by Lia Riley
Bedmates by Nichole Chase is $1.99! I talked about this book in October 2016’s Hide Your Wallet and it’s an enemies to friends to lovers romance. Readers say this romance is definitely on the sweeter side of new adult, so if you’re looking for a lot of angst, this book isn’t for you.
It’s time for Cover Snark, where we take a look at some unsettling covers in an effort to make your Mondays a little better! From Delight: I don’t know if this particular…oddity, has been featured before but I received it in a newsletter and I just couldn’t deal. I couldn’t. His face is green. He looks like he tried a weird shade of foundation that he failed to blend. And why is he looking at … Continue reading Cover Snark: The Next Marvel Superhero
RECOMMENDED: A Promise of Fire by Amanda Bouchet is $4.99! Thanks to Ren for the heads up yesterday. I absolutely loved this book and it’s the best book I’ve read so far this year. And while it’s not our typical less than $4 sale price, it’s definitely worth the extra buck. I gave the book an A:
I can say, without a doubt, that A Promise of Fire is going on my keeper shelf. I want more of these characters and I want more of this world. I cannot remember the last time I wanted to both savor and devour a book, and Bouchet’s writing is so engaging and magical that I wish she had some sort of backlist I could dive into for the next few months. If you’re even slightly tempted by this review or from the chapter one excerpt, buy this book. Because I need more people to discuss it with, pronto!
Fire Inside by Kristen Ashley is 99c at Amazon, Kobo, and Google:Play! Elsewhere, it’s $3.99, so let’s hope for the price-matching fairies will pay a visit. This is a contemporary romance that borders on the erotic side, and features a motorcycle-riding hero and a one-night stand. Ashley tends to write some dramatic, angsty romance, which is something readers either seems to love or hate. Have you read this one?
