So, I totally fell off the NaPoWriMo wagon and I have no excuse…unless you can call reading an excuse. Yes, you read it right! I’ve been reading. Finally!
The first on my list is the hot bestseller, Stuck Up Suit by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. It’s a contemporary romance that’s sexy, fun, exhilarating and left me with a hangover – a good one this time. Given that the last book I read in 24 hours was Under the Skin and creeped me out enough to make me into a vegetarian for 6 months, Stuck-Up Suit was a delightful read, so delightful it gave me an awesome book hangover that I’m still recovering from. A really good one. It doesn’t hurt that the drool-worthy Dusan Susnjar is on the cover and I’ll be honest – I bought it because him.
BTW, I found this and the next book while learning the ropes on Facebook as an author. It’s a whole different world over there, that’s for sure!
The second book I read is Playing the Game by Shawnté Borris. It’s got army veteran and wounded warrior turned cover model BT Urruela on the cover. BT co-founded VetSports, a nonprofit organization aimed at helping vets heal mind, body and soul – and I mention that because it will figure in the last book(s) I’m going to ramble on about. Playing the Game tugs at your heartstrings and is more than just a simple romance. There’s also friendships, and love for family.
The third book is not romance, which is surprising given the last few books I’ve read. It’s paranormal/dark fantasy by a fellow author I “met” on Instagram and so far, I’m enjoying the book.
The Making of Gabriel Davenport is Beverley Lee’s debut novel, and if you’ve got an Amazon Kindle Unlimited membership, it’s free on KU so give this a read! Beverley did an amazing job with her novel and I can’t recommend her highly enough.
The last book(s) that are on my list just came out today and will be available for sale until June 5 so if you want to give military-themed romances a try (I think some are pretty racy), check out Coming Home, an anthology of 5 full-length novels featuring KL Grayson and BT Urruela (the veteran, wounded warrior and cover model is also a writer, yo!), Heid McLaughlin and more. All net proceeds benefit VetSports and at 99 cents for 5 full-length novels, is an excellent price for a good cause. I already have Grayson and Urruela’s book which is next on my TBR list, but I’m still working on The Making of Gabriel Davenport.
Anyway, enough of my rambling! Hope you give these books a look and tell me what you think!
