Book Picks for This Week - October 8, 2012

until_there_was_youJessica Scott’s “Until There Was You” – I have a review copy of this one that I haven’t gotten a chance to read. I will be reading it next, however as I very much enjoyed Scott’s debut book “Because of You.”

 

Jamie Brenner’s “The Gin Lovers #1” – I’ve read the first two installments of this series and while I’m not a big fan of historicals set during the Prohibition, I’m very curious about this series.

 

Christine d’Abo’s “Calling the Shots” – I’ve been waiting for Josh’s story since d’Abo first introduced him in “Double Shot” (was that only a year ago??). Josh was the third in a ménage in “Double Shot,” but he got too emotionally involved. Now, he finds his own happily ever after with Beth and Oliver. This one is a fabulous read. I highly recommend it!

Author Interview: Jamie Brenner

Gin-Lovers-1-coverToday, RNN is pleased to host Jamie Brenner, author of the serial novel, “The Gin Lovers” - a Prohibition set historical romance, for an interview.

 

Q: Your upcoming release, "The Gin Lovers" is a serialized romance for St. Martins set amidst "the backdrop of Prohibition and the rise of the Jazz Age." Can you tell us a bit more about the story?

A: The Gin Lovers is, at its heart, a story about a woman who suddenly questions her choices.

 

Charlotte’s marriage was a “safe” choice, she follows all the rules – but the rules are changing dramatically. She looks around her and sees women taking risks, making their own choices, and living lives that have nothing to do with having a proper marriage. And she wonders if she is missing out. Then, once her eyes are more open to the world around her, she discovers that her “safe” husband is not who he appears to be.

“Forbidden Desire” by Jodie Griffin (ebook, review copy)
Review to come.

 

“For Keeps” by Karen Booth (ebook)
I won this book from the author. It features Allie and her much younger neighbor Cooper. I thought this a very strong story. The author did a great job portraying the age difference, as Cooper seemed much more immature than Allie. I was very caught up in the story and couldn’t wait to see how she resolved the age conflict and gave them their HEA (very nicely).

 

“Laid Open” by Lauren Dane (ebook)
Erin, Todd and Ben are one of my favorite committed threesomes, so I was so excited when Lauren Dane announced she would be revisiting them with a novella. This is a fabulous read that any fans of Dane’s Brown’s series must read.

Review: Reflected in You

reflected_217“Reflected in You” by Sylvia Day (erotic, Berkley, October 2012, $9.99ebk, 432pp)

 

Series: Book 2 in the Crossfire Series

 

Summary:
Gideon Cross. As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn't stay away. I didn't want to. He was my addiction... my every desire... mine.

My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful... except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity.

We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession...

 

MateClaimed200x300Jennifer Ashley’s “Mate Claimed”
I read the first book in this series way back when it was released by Dorchester. I didn’t really care for the fact that the shifters were collared. However, I’ve heard some good things about this series recently. I have a copy of “Mate Claimed” and am planning to read when I get a chance.

 

Lauren Dane’s “Laid Open”
In this novella, Dane revisits the trio of Erin, Ben and Todd – one of my all-time favorite romantic triads. I have been waiting for this one since I first found out about it. Out of the books that will be delivered to my Kindle tomorrow, this is the first one that I will be reading!!!!!

Monthly Totals:
Total Books Read: 42
Ebooks Reads: 37
Paper Books Read: 5
Review Copies Read: 20

“Deep Desires” by Charlotte Stein (ebook, review copy)
I have a new reviewer reading this one. I adored the story, however. This is very different – the story of two very damaged people who find comfort (and passion) in each other. I recommend this for those looking for something very different.

 

"Knight" by Kristen Ashley (ebook)

@KatiD on Twitter got me into Kristen Ashley by loaning me a copy of “Motorcycle Man.” I then moved to “Knight,” which I adored. Knight is an alphahole extraordinaire – a domineering and dominating type of dude (who is also a pimp). This one is very extreme and will cause many readers to scream in agony. Kristen Ashley is cracktastically awesome!

 

“Hold ‘Em” by Katie Porter (ebook, review copy)
Review to come.
