Have you ever started a book and within the first few pages, just knew you were going to love it? Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews the first in her new Hidden Legacy series was that kind of book. I consumed it with a smile on my face from its well-built world to the characters I was in book nirvana! Burn For Me is a must read for Urban Fantasy lovers this Fall.
Big Driver was originally published in Stephen King’s acclaimed collection, Full Dark, No Stars. It has been released as a standalone in celebration of the movie adaption. Tonight, Big Driver, will premiere on Lifetime Movie Channel. I was so excited to receive a copy of the audio edition of Big Driver. As a Stephen King fan, this one gave me the chills and thrills I crave from his novels. Dark, haunting, creepy and engaging I devoured this short audio.
One Night More is the first book in the U.S. Marshals series by Mandy Baxter. It’s a romantic suspense featuring a hot U.S. Marshal and feisty reporter. If you are looking for a perfect escape romance One Night More is sure to please.
I was so excited when I received an audio copy of Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld. The synopsis intrigued me, and I dove into the audio with such anticipation. Despite a stellar performance by narrators, Sheetal Sheth, and Heather Lind, the overall stories feel flat for me, making the story unmemorable.
Snow Like Ashes is a brilliant fantasy with strong world-building and fearless protagonists. This is the first book in the Snow Like Ashes trilogy by Sara Raasch I quickly became swept up in the world, and it’s characters.

Echoes of Scotland Street is the fifth book in the On Dublin Street series by Samantha Young. I love how Young allows me to slip right into her stories and that her characters wrap themselves around my heart. In Echoes of Scotland Street Cole Walker is all grown-up and ladies the boy is F-I-N-E, fine.
I absolutely enjoyed Kate and Drew’s journey from the hilarious first book Tangled to Tied when we finally get our happily ever after. In typical Drew Evans’ fashion, the road is bumpy, sexy and hilariously complicated in Tied by Emma Chase, book four in the Tangled series. We get some heat, and I no lie my nook began to overheat. Oh-la-la.
am a huge Cecy Robson fan and love her Weird Girls series, so I was excited to try her debut in the new adult genre with Once Perfect. Once Perfect is the first in the Shattered Past series, and while I connected to the characters and rooted for them, aspects left me craving more.
I love the McCauley Brothers series by Marie Harte and Ruining Mr. Perfect gave us Cameron, the youngest McCauley’s story, along with a few side stories that gave it a small-town vibe. From page one Harte grabbed me, and I devoured this as I laughed, sighed and crossed my fingers. If you haven’t tried this series yet, I highly recommend it to fans of BROTHERS, *yummy brothers*, small-town feels, family and just the right amount of heat.
