For my 2015 year in review, I will be doing several posts - mostly because there were about 87 books on my list of reads that stood out to me and I had to group them together. The first post is new to me authors in 2015 with information about their books that I loved.
I am always excited to discover new authors, and I found many new ones to feed my reading habit in 2015.
Kate Canterbary: I can’t exactly remember how I discovered Kate Canterbary, but I think through talking to her on twitter. If I remember correctly, she mentioned her self-published series about the Walsh siblings and that it was set in Boston. I always look at books set in Massachusetts. And I was thrilled with the first book in the series, Underneath it All. I immediately read the next book, The Space Between and then badgered the poor author until she finished the next two books, Necessary Restorations and The Cornerstone. I adore all of the books in this series which I would classify as super sexy and smart contemporary romance with tortured characters. Canterbary’s heroines can be difficult to like with hard-to-crack outer shells, but this is one of the things that makes the books so special - because getting to know them is so worth it.

Broken Resolutions by Olivia Dade (contemporary, Lyrical, December 2015)

Romance has never had a happy ending for librarian Penny Callahan, who could write the book on cheating, heartbreaking liars. So she’s made a resolution: no men for the next twelve months. If she can just get through the library’s New Year’s Eve singles night, she can return home to her pajamas and a good book. But when she finds herself checking out a hot hunk with an irresistible smile, an evening in the stacks becomes a lot more tempting…

Crash by Drew Jordan (erotic thriller, November 2015, self published)
The greatest love stories begin with blood…
There is blood. There is pain. And there is him. These are the first things I register when I wake up, the lone survivor in an Alaskan plane crash. He carries me to safety over rough terrain and brings me to his cabin in the woods. He has no name. Or none he will tell me.
