Recent Reads – May 2020

In case you can’t see the image, I’ll list them all below–along with buy links so you can read them, too!

Liza's Recent Reads May 2020

1. The Hookup Handbook by Kendall Ryan. This was a cute, contemporary romance with a workplace romance and the “best friend’s little sister” trope. Amazon US. Everywhere.

2. Destiny’s Captive by Beverly Jenkins. This is my first Beverly Jenkins book! She’s a legend. An enjoyable historical romance. Amazon US. Everywhere.

3. The Ones Who Got Away by Roni Loren. Emotional and satisfying contemporary romance. Some distressing backstory (a school shooting) that almost had me putting it down, but the overall message is positive and I’m SUPER glad I kept reading! Amazon US. Everywhere.

4. Ouran High School Host Club by Bisco Hatori. This is my first manga and it takes skill to read a story that is told in both pictures and words! I kept wanting to read only the words, and then I’d miss the context and have to go back. Loving this, though, and I’ll have to read more. Amazon US. Everywhere.

5. Hate F*@k by Ainsley Booth. This one is steeeeeamy, erotic romance. Thoroughly enjoyable with opposites attract and a forbidden romance. Also enemies-to-lovers. So all the reader catnip! Amazon US. Everywhere.

7 Paranormal Romance Authors Share Their Recent Faves

So often, you hear what your favorite authors are writing and publishing. Well, here I’ve collected the books that author friends and I have recently read and recommend to you. Go forth, and find some great new books to check out!

PNR Authors Recommend covers

1. I recommend Meow by Skye MacKinnon. This is the first urban fantasy in her Catnip Assassins series, and it features TONS of cats! Oh, and the heroine is a cat shifter. Which, as we all know, is awesome. You can find Meow on all retailers. My most recently published book is Ruthless Knight.

2. Keira Blackwood, author of Dragon Guardian of Water, recommends Blow Me Away by Christina Hovland. Keira says, “Take a sexy florist hero who likes to dance while working shirtless, add a heroine who bakes cock-shaped cookies, and I’m interested. Throw in a fake relationship and an over-the-top meddlesome grandmother, and I’m hooked. Blow Me Away manages the perfect balance between sweet, sexy, and ridiculous.” You can find Blow Me Away on Amazon

3. C.D. Gorri, author of The Enforcer, recommends Goldilocks and Her Harem of Bears. C.D. says, “I thought this book was told amazingly well. It is a unique and quirky retelling of a classic fairy tale and it rocked. I love pretty much everything P. Mattern writes and this was no different. I highly recommend.” You can find Goldilocks and Her Harem of Bears on Amazon, Google Play, and Kobo.

4. TJ Finn, author of Dangerous Love, recommends Rebel by Helen Hardt. TJ says, “Helen Hardt is a master at bringing her characters alive and has me falling for even the who I think is the worse/antihero. She gives me all the feels when I read her stuff.” You can find Rebel on all retailers.

5. Natalie Aejaz, author of Lion’s Heart, recommends Lover Awakened by J.R. Ward. She says, “Love him or loathe him, Zsadist is the reason I would recommend this book. An angst-ridden character, he is given a chance at happiness with Bella, but can he move on from a horrific past?” You can find Lover Awakened on Amazon.

6. Michelle Fox, author of Motherducking Magic, recommends Carrie Pulkinen’s License to Bite. She says, “It’s light, it’s fun, it’s all my favorite things that go ‘bump’ in the night. Just the kind of distraction I need right now with everything going on!” You can find License to Bite on Amazon.

7. Carrie Pulkinen, author of Shift Happens, recommends The Vampire Wants a Wife, by Andie M. Long. She says, “It’s a quick, light-hearted read about vampires and other supernatural beings. It had me giggling quite a few times, and I just really enjoyed it! Such a fun read!.” You can find The Vampire Wants a Wife on Amazon.
