Torn is the second book in the Billionaire Bachelors Club. In the first book, Crave three friends make a bet that the last guy to remain single takes a million dollar prize. Each book deals with one of the friends and can be read as a standalone. Mini review: Fun, seriously hot and sweet.
I grabbed Night Owls the first book in the new urban fantasy series by Lauren M. Roy for the setting. The tale takes place in the college town of Edgewood at a bookstore called Night Owls. Roy offered an engaging tale with a motley crew of supernatural and human characters. Mini review: With a new supernatural creature and interesting characters, it holds the promise of an exciting new series.
The Archived by Victoria Schwab is the first in her fantasy series. Archived offered up interesting characters and the fantastic secret world of the archives. From the very first pages I found myself captivated by the author’s creative and unique tale. Mini review: magical, mysterious and engaging.
Murder of Crows is the second book in The Others urban fantasy series by Anne Bishop and I chose to listen to the audio version. Alexandra Harris, the narrator, did a stellar job of giving the characters voice, and I once again I gave up my life for two days to consume this. Bishop is brilliant and I am in awe of her world. Mini review: Epic, complex, dark, light and brilliant.
I have had Wild Ones by M. Leighton on my nook since, well forever. I watched it go to the top of the charts, saw Penguin pick it up, republish it and then I got an ARC of book two, and it was just the kick I needed to read it. Dang..why did I wait so long. *sigh* I have read previous books by Leighton and adored them. Isn’t it weird how some books just sit in our pile, even though we know they will be good?
If you have been staying Caffeinated then you already know Jayne Anne Krentz and her pseudonyms are on my auto-buy list.

Mini review: Edge of your seat suspense with warm, slow-building friends to lovers romance that felt genuine.
