This is an epic week in entertainment: Game of Thrones returns and E.L. James has a new book. Does it get any better than this? I think not.
❤ Indicates the books that I have read and recommend.
❤ Time (Laws of Physics #3) by Penny Reid (April 15). Not a standalone.
Time is the highly anticipated third book in Penny Reid’s Laws of Physics trilogy, so whether you’ve read the books as they released or have waited to binge-read, Abram and Mona’s love story is complete. And what a love story it is! Theirs is a deeply affecting journey – for them personally and as a couple – and it’s emotional, heartwarming and downright captivating.
Abram and Mona meet under less than ideal or honest circumstances, but their feelings slowly percolate and they develop a profound emotional connection that makes their eventual physical relationship both achingly beautiful and seriously sexy. They truly understand one another at the most intimate level and accept each other as their most unvarnished, genuine selves, and I can’t think of anything more romantic than that. Mixed into this cauldron of deliciousness is Reid’s ingenious and clever theme of physics that makes the story more complex, nuanced and fascinating. The Laws of Physics trilogy is slow-burn romance at its best, and lest you fear that is code for ‘boring’, it’s anything but. This story is truly timeless and unforgettable.
Pervade London (Pervade Duet #1) by Vanessa Fewing (April 15). Not a standalone.
In this erotic, suspenseful romance by the uber-talented Vanessa Fewings, a gifted violinist finds herself swept away in a steamy ménage à trois romance with two powerful men. I’ve heard early readers call this story mind-blowing, enthralling and scorching hot.
Breaking Without You by Carrie Ann Ryan (April 16)
I love a poignant, heartfelt second-chance romance, so Breaking Without You has been on my radar for a while. It’s the emotional story of two people with broken hearts, who are brought together again after a tragedy, and they decide to try to recapture the love that they once shared.
Twisted Pride (The Camorra Chronicles #3) by Cora Reilly (April 16) Not completely a standalone.
Twisted Pride is an enemies-to-lovers, mafia romance and the third book in Cora Reilly’s The Camorra Chronicles. When a ruthless mobster, who currently rules over Las Vegas with an iron fist, kidnaps a mafia princess on her wedding day in order to extract retribution, the sparks fly and the struggle for control commences. I bet there is no predicting where this gritty, angsty story will go.
The Mister by E.L. James (April 16)
I am not sure if you are aware or not, but E.L. James has a new book out this week. Who am I kidding? I can’t think of anyone who isn’t anxiously waiting to get their hands on The Mister and can’t decide if people are more excited about it or the return of Game of Thrones.
❤ Best of Intentions by L.K. Farlow (April 18)
L.K. Farlow writes swoon-worthy romances infused with Southern charm, and Best of Intentions is a heartwarming and sexy love story that hits all the right spots. Jenny has a crush on her best friend’s older brother Nate, but he’s always kept her strictly in the friend-zone, although he’s extremely attracted to her. On the night of his sister’s wedding, Jenny makes her move and he can longer resist her. They have a hot one-night stand, but, now, Nate wants more than one night but is also worried that he’s not a relationship kind of guy and will hurt her. They tumble their way into love, and you’ll laugh, cheer and sigh as these two endearing characters find their happily ever after. Don’t miss this book.
