Friday Finds & Reader Recommendations – 07-05-2024


HAPPY 4TH OF JULY WEEKEND EVERYONE!! I’m still on my amazing long weekend holiday, and still celebrating the 4th (even today), ’cause it poured rain yesterday evening in our area.

Jennifer: The Mindf*ck series by S.T. Abby. FBI agent falls in love with a serial killer. Really good!

FORBIDDEN ROMANCE ALERT!!


Sweetest Sin: A Forbidden Priest Romance

FORBIDDEN ROMANCE W/ A PRIEST ALERT!!

The priest responsible for my salvation is the man leading me into temptation.  Or maybe I’m the one corrupting him? 

Father Raphael St. Lucian shares my desire, but even he can’t fight our twisted thoughts and fantasies. He promises that we will be saved if we confront our lust and resist this dangerous attraction. But an innocent kiss becomes a forbidden touch...”

JeanieV: Ohhhhhh! Sweetest Sin was soooo good. It’s my fave guilty pleasure of 2016. I was shocked stupid but not because of the taboo nature of the story. The writing was really well done. And there were definitely a lot of “Whaaaaat????” “No!!!!” “Eeeep!” moments for sure.

Cristina: Finished “Sweetest Sin” tonight. Perfect ending to a really great story! I can hang my Grandmother’s rosary up! Redemption has been found! I’m so happy I got to read this hidden treasure. Beautifully written. I would only add that the story could have been written into two books. While the book is satisfying enough by itself, I would like to have witnessed the first part of their journey. The story comes to us after their friendship and feelings have already developed, but neither have acted upon them or confronted each other about them. I wish I could’ve been there for that part, yet somehow I don’t feel shorted. The author did a fantastic job giving us everything we need to become entranced with these two and their forbidden story! Loved it!! 🙂

Jan: …I love your description of your reading of Sweetest Sin. You guys are hilarious. Reading the comments always makes me smile (as well as giving me great books recs).

READER RECOMMENDATION!!


Kids of Appetite

FORBIDDEN READER RECOMMENDATION!!

“The critically acclaimed author of Mosquitoland brings us another batch of unforgettable characters in this New York Times bestselling tragicomedy about first love and devastating loss.”

Jennifer: I also read Kids of Appetite in January also a great read and different story… fairly taboo due to h’s age, lots of drug references, hard childhood upbringing and mental illness, but a beautiful, emotional, moving story. I loved it…but I don’t mind taboo.

Tasha J: I’m so happy someone else read Kids of Appetite too! If I’d had read it sooner I would have said it was my favorite book last year, hands down. It’s definitely one of my all time favorites.

READER RECOMMENDATION!


Score on You: A Grumpy x Sunshine Small Town Standalone

SPORTS ROMANCE!! NANCY 5-STAR LOVED IT!

“…The former hockey star is intimidating but irresistible. He’s the opposite of the men I’ve been raised to fear. Rather than restrain my newfound freedom, he shows me what it means to thrive. That gives me the courage to wade deeper.

Ridge’s stony exterior rarely cracks, except for me. He’s different when I’m nearby and I like that. A lot. It has me seeking him out, but I never have to look far…”

Nancy: …one of my favorite authors, Harloe Rae. Now that I’ve read this one, I can say that I’ve read all her books! This is a unique pairing of two opposites that are perfect match for each other.

Sweetness, and because of how she’d been raised, they had a slow-burn start to their romance. It’s then a first kiss for his Callie and what a kiss it is! By the end of the story the romance is blazing hot, and you are sure that this is a forever more romance. I loved Ridge & Callie together!

Deeper Than the Dead (Vera Boyett Book 1)

ONE OF THE AMAZON FIRST READS I JUST CHOSE! Her long-missing step-mother’s body is found…

It’s a summer in small-town Tennessee, so thick with humidity it could drown you and so rife with secrets it could smother you. And deep beneath the surface, there are more bodies than you’d think…”
