I’ve always had a fondness for moody, well-written characters with a dangerous side, but a full-blown bad boy can make me weak at the knees. And that is just one of the many reasons why this series has been one of the most electrifying sagas I have ever read. Book after book, Penelope Douglas has kept exploring the grey area separating heroes from villains, delving boldly into the inner conflicts of her characters, and pushing the envelope further and further. But this time around, she has not only kept pushing— she unequivocally stomped all over that envelope and then burned it to ashes by delivering a story that is the very definition of an intoxicating page-turner. Douglas’ talent for keeping readers on their toes is on display as ever in this wild, crazy, even chilling at times tale of revenge, atonement, and second chances. And every time you might think to yourself that she won’t go there one way or another, think again—she will and you will love every glorious minute of it.

Devney Perry delivers a story that is rare and understatedly breathtaking—a story of two people from very different worlds, both struggling to break free from their families’ expectations of them, while paving their own paths in life. Written with warmth and sensitivity, perfectly paced and splendidly characterised, this is the kind of story that stays with you long after you’ve run out of pages to read, and it’s the kind of book that swallows you whole, going straight for the heart.

They say all good things must come to an end, and our last ride with the men and women of Chaos MC is not only bittersweet—it’s also Kristen Ashley’s love letter to a world that has singlehandedly reshaped a genre for so many. A thrill ride start to finish, the series draws to a close with the long-awaited story of Rush Allen and the woman who steals his heart, but it also gives all the other characters in the series their own curtain call, thus paying homage to the many turbulent times Chaos has had to weather through in order to finally ride FREE into the sunset. In a story of redemption, love, loyalty, change, legacy, and the ties that hold true families together, we are spared no punches as we watch Chaos stand united and rise victorious against enemies old and new. And it’s truly a sight to behold.

What a truly POWERFUL book this was! Best known for the varied distinctiveness of her stories, K.A. Tucker’s foray into Young Adult fiction is nothing less than extraordinary, delivering a coming-of-age story that is heartfelt, relevant, and incredibly thought-provoking. With a narrative conveyed entirely through a fifteen-year-old’s voice, K.A. Tucker captures some of the most troubling issues facing teenagers on the brink of adulthood today with a compelling tale of regret, redemption, and new beginnings that grabs the reader from the very first page. This novel is an important one—every bit as candid as it is touching—and it is a read-in-one-sitting kind of story that you won’t be able to stop thinking about.

This was the book I didn’t even know I needed as it had everything I always seek in a great romance—deep emotion, well-rounded characters, addictive storytelling. It’s a story that tugs at the heartstrings cover to cover, a story of healing and finding true love amidst heartbreak, and it was the kind of book you read in a single sitting, and then wish you could just go back to the beginning and start all over again.

I have been breathlessly recommending Scarlett Peckham’s writing from the moment I first discovered her magnificent prose in The Duke I Tempted, and I’ve been eagerly awaiting her second novel ever since. A mix of tropes that are essentially my catnip—a marriage of convenience between two people who appear to hate one another, with an unrequited love twist thrown in to up the angst—this Regency-era romance continues the Secrets of Charlotte Street series with a story that is so much more than the sum of its tropes. Brimming with emotion, passion, and plenty of pining, Scarlett Peckham’s latest offering is a touching portrayal of two people finding out what they mean to themselves and to each other by pretending to be something they are not. It’s by far one of my favourite reads of the year.

TOP RECOMMENDATION | EROTIC SUSPENSE

Winter

Sending him to prison was the worst thing I could’ve done. It didn’t matter that he did the crime or that I wished he was dead. Perhaps I thought I’d have time to disappear before he got out or he’d cool off in jail and be anything but the horror he was.

But I was wrong. Three years came and went too fast, and now he’s anything but calm. Prison only gave him time to plan.

And while I anticipated his vengeance, I didn’t expect this.

He doesn’t want to make me hurt. He wants to make everything hurt.

Damon

First thing’s first. Get rid of her daddy. He told them I forced her. He told them his little girl was a victim, but I was a kid, too, and she wanted it just as much as I did.

Step two… Give her, her sister, and her mother nowhere to run and no fuel to escape. The Ashby women are alone now and desperate for a knight in shining armor.

But that’s not what’s coming.

No, it’s time I listened to my father and took control of my future. It’s time I showed them all—my family, her family, my friends—that I will never change and that I have no other ambition than to be the nightmare of their lives.

Starting with her.

She’ll be so scared, she won’t even be safe in her own head by the time I’m done with her. And the best part is I won’t have to break into her home to do it.

As the new man of the house I have all the keys.

This is the third book in the  series and while each instalment follows a different couple, all the stories are intertwined and connected, so reading the series in its proper order is needed.

BROTHER’S BEST FRIEND

Forced to lie to protect her sister . . .

One week.
Home alone.
Girl genius.
Unrepentant slacker.
What’s the worst that could happen?

Mona is a smart girl and had everything figured out a long time ago. She had to. She didn’t have a choice. When your parents are uber-celebrities and you graduate from high school at thirteen, finish college at seventeen, and start your PhD program at eighteen, you don’t have time for distractions outside of your foci. Even fun is scheduled.

Which is why Abram, her brother’s best friend, is such an irritant.

Abram is a talented guy, a supremely gifted musician, and has absolutely nothing figured out, nor does he seem to care. He does what he feels, when he feels, and—in Mona’s opinion—he makes her feel entirely too much.

This is the first instalment in the all-new Laws of Physics trilogy, the second trilogy in the Hypothesis series. Parts one and two both end with cliffhangers.

“Things you should know about me from the very beginning: I was born to true love, witnessed the destruction it causes, and vowed never to let such agony happen to me. I am not a story-teller like my father. I am not a writer like my mother. I am just a son—their son. I am happy being alone. And that is all I ever want to be.”

Jacob
The day he was born, Jacob learned his hardest and longest lesson.
It wasn’t a lesson a boy should learn so young, but from his earliest memories he knew where happiness lives, so does tragedy. Where love exists, so does heartbreak. And where hope resides, so does sorrow.
That lesson carved him from the kid to the teen to the man.
And nothing and no one could change his mind.

Hope
I first met him when he was fourteen at a movie premiere of all places. A movie based on his parent’s life.
He was stoic, strong, suspicious, and secretive.
I was only ten, but I felt something for him. A strange kind of heartbreak that made me want to hug and heal him.
I was the daughter of the actor hired to play his father.
We shared similarities.
I recognised parts of him because they were parts of me.
But no matter how many times we met. No matter how many times I tried.
He stayed true to his vow to never fall.

This is a standalone spin-off novel from the Ribbon duet.

Even for a top-gun banker, temptation this hot is quite a gamble…

An alpha among the wolves of Wall Street, Kennedy Dawson rose to the top of the pack by striking the right contracts at the right times. But there’s one deal that’s been giving him a run for his money—a pact to never again let his assistant, Kate, get under his skin. She may be smart, gorgeous, and sharp as a whip, but she’s definitely off-limits.

Kate Henley isn’t a banker, but she knows a thing or two about risk management—specifically, about managing her attraction to her smolderingly sexy boss. She already fell once, and Kennedy showed no sign of paying a return on her investment. So when Kennedy’s brother starts pursuing her, Kate figures she has the best of both worlds. Jack is charming, rich, very attentive, and the spitting image of his older brother.

It’s also making Kennedy think twice. But to win Kate’s heart, he’ll have to broker the deal of a lifetime…and prove he’s worth the risk.

This is the third standalone novel in the 21 Wall Street series.

From the moment we met, I knew she was different. Could she be the one to end this drought? I suppose there is only one way to find out.

MYSTERY THRILLER

There is a serial killer on the loose, preying on vulnerable women. The only identifiable mark the killer leaves are letters—sometimes one, sometimes two—all carved into the torsos of his victims.  Together they spell “Sydney.”

When he grabs Daisy Dawson, he believes he has found his next victim. But despite her small stature, she fights back with an expertise that quickly frees her. Before fleeing the scene, Daisy also manages to grab what proves to be crucial evidence: a necklace from around the killer’s neck.

The necklace is more than a trivial item—it is a link to a cold case that Special Agent Gideon Reynolds has been tracking for seventeen years. With Daisy’s help, Gideon finally has the opportunity to get closer to the truth than ever before.

But they might not get the chance, as the serial killer has a new target: Gideon and Daisy.

This is the first book in the all-new Sacramento series.
