Life is finally slowing down for me, which is a huge relief considering how many books that I want to read. I finally have the time to dig in, and, thankfully, there are plenty of new releases to choose from this week.
❤ Indicates the books that I have read and recommend.
❤ Intention by Ava Harrison (Feb. 7)
Ava Harrison’s latest is an enemies-to-lovers, workplace romance that packs intense emotion and fiery heat. Nathaniel is trying to prove himself to his wealthy and powerful family when he buys the company that Madeline works for and becomes her boss. She sparks something in him, and he does everything he can to ruffle her feathers until he realizes that he desperately needs her help. He asks her to be his fake girlfriend and she agrees, but they both get a lot more than either of them bargained for – love. Intention is a captivating, sexy and heartwarming romance that you don’t want to miss.
Kill Switch (Devil’s Night #3) by Penelope Douglas (Feb. 11). Not a Standalone.
Kill Switch is the third book in the Devil’s Night series. Although you could technically read each as a standalone, Penelope Douglas recommends that you follow the series in order to get the full experience, and I agree. Kill Switch is a complex and dark story of revenge and second chances that will have you furiously turning the pages late into the night.
Motion (Law of Physics #1) by Penny Reid (Feb. 11). Not a standalone.
I’m a huge fan of Penny Reid, so I’m always ecstatic when she has a new release. Motion is the first book in the Law of Physics trilogy, and I hear the cliffhanger is a doozy so I’m biding my time until I can get my hand on all three books. It’s a slow-burn romance between a socially awkward genius and laid-back musician with a few unexpected twists and turns.
Nice and Easy by Erin Nicholas (Feb. 12)
In this sexy standalone by Erin Nicholas, two single parents begin to wonder if their comfortable friendship can evolve into something more. I have a feeling this is going to be a heartwarming and memorable romance.
❤ Luck of the Devil (Forge #2) by Meghan March (Feb. 12). Not a standalone.
Get ready for the second installment in the Forge trilogy, because Luck of the Devil is just as unpredictable and riveting as the first book. Indy and Jericho’s chemistry is only getting hotter – if that’s possible! – as they grapple with their evolving feelings, explosive revelations and outside threats, and I didn’t want to put it down even for a minute. The final book, Heart of the Devil, releases March 12, and that can’t get here quick enough.
Huge Deal by Lauren Layne (Feb. 12)
Lauren Layne is one of my favorite authors, so I am always excited to get my hands on one of her contemporary romances. I love the first two books in her 21 Wall Street series, Hot Asset and Hard Sell, so I’ve been anxiously awaiting the third, standalone installment, Huge Deal, which features a Wall Street banking shark who finds himself beguiled by his sassy executive assistant. I wouldn’t be surprised if this ends up on my Best of 2019 list.
Crazy on You by Crystal B. Bright (Feb. 12)
In Crystal B. Bright’s Crazy on You, two musicians with very different styles agree to collaborate on an album but get sidetracked by the strong attraction simmering between them. Is mixing business with pleasure worth risking their careers? I am betting it is!
It Happens by Lani Lynn Vale (Feb. 12)
I’ve loved every book in Lani Lynn Vale’s Bear Bottom Guardians MC series, so I am dying to read the sixth, standalone book, It Happens. I also hear it is the best one yet! After tragedy took both of their siblings and changed their lives, these two former friends must wade through some of the pain and anger of the past to have a fresh start and discover a new beginning. I predict this romance will deliver all the feels.
