Top Ten Favorite Books of 2015

 

IMG_20151228_163212

 

It’s so hard to believe that another reading year has come to an end, but I’m very excited to share my list of favorite reads of this past year with my fellow bookworms! It was a bit of a rough reading year for me with the hitting my original goal of 60 books, so half way through the year I lowered my goal to 40 books to take a bit of the pressure off myself. That helped me a lot to sit back and actually enjoy what I was reading. And getting myself into a reading schedule. along with a different frame of mind about reading really helped me reach my goal.

Screenshot_2015-12-28-17-32-26-1 Even though I read just over 40 books, I still had a hard time just picking my top ten books of 2015. You can see some of the other books on my favorites of 2015 shelf on Goodreads. So without further delay, here is my list of books that I loved this year. (I’m not listing them in any particular order because each one struck a vein with me in some sort of way.) If I have a review posted here on the blog, I will make sure to link back to it for easy reading.

 

  1. Beyond What Is Given by Rebecca Yarros 

25518107 (1)

The feels. Oh the FEELS with this book. I binged the military romance Flight & Glory series at the beginning of the fall and was not disappointed at all. I loved every single book in the series, but this third installment stuck out to me the most. It’s emotional, has a diverse cast of characters with an interracial romance, secrets and super hot sex. Grayson Masters is the perfect book boyfriend; he’s sexy, intelligent, romantic, and dirty when he’s underneath the sheets. If you only read one book from this list, this should be the one!

 

2. Lev by Belle Aurora 

Lev

This book started out as a complete mystery to me. I picked it up on a whim because of all the buzz surrounding it on Instagram. I went in blind and ended up loving it more because of that. This book was unique, sometimes dark, moving and quite funny. All of the characters were different from my usual reads which was quite refreshing. If you’re looking for something new and different and not cookie cutter in your contemporary romance, definitely add this book to your TBR.

 

3. Say You’re Mine by Diane Alberts 

SayYoureMine_500

Super steamy, sexy, and loads of playful fun! This book was a quick read and reaffirmed by love for all things Diane Alberts. I won’t fan girl too much more over this books since I seemed to do that a lot earlier in the month but my review explains why Steven is my #1 ginger book boyfriend.

 

4. Dear Professor by Blaire Drake 

DP

This book gets my vote for best debut of the year and best taboo romance. If student/teacher romances are your thing, this book is right up your alley. Professor Jordan Keaton will make you thirsty and want to go back to school ASAP just so he can feel you up during his office hours. Even though the sex was off the charts hot, there was a lot of romance and heart to this story. Very well rounded book for a debut author.

 

5. Off Base by Tessa Bailey & Sophie Jordan 

OffBase

It’s no secret that I’m an enthusiastic Tessa Bailey fan girl, so it shouldn’t be any surprise to see her on this list. This time around she self published with Sophie Jordan and I loved every single minute of both of these stories. TB is known for being the queen of dirty talking and she set the bar high with her story of a virgin military hero. Sophie Jordan’s story that was set in the same world, but follows a different couple was just as hot. I quickly added all of Sophie’s contemporary titles to my TBR. If you’re looking for two quick stories to break up your regular reading schedule then pick up this set straight away.

 

6. Five Ways To Fall by K.A. Tucker 

FWTF

Another series that I binge read this fall and absolutely fell in love with. Just about every book in this series made it onto my favorites of 2015 shelf, but this one was my top favorite. I loved how we got to see glimpses of Ben, the hero in this story throughout each installment in this series , but never got to know who he really was until this book. This book was full of love, lessons, sexy times. I’m so glad that I can finally cross “read a K.A. Tucker book” off of my master TBR list.

 

7. All I Want by Jill Shalvis 

AllIWant

This book was the final in Jill Shalvis’ Animal Magnetism series and ended up being my favorite out of all 7 books. It was just full of ooey gooey goodness! I’m a HUGE Jill fan and loved this book to pieces. Reading her books are like experiencing a good piece of chocolate or a brownie; you want to savor it, but at the same time you know you can gobble up the whole thing in one sitting. Her books are comfort reads and slump breakers for me, because I know that I’ll always enjoy the witty banter, sexy chemistry, and sweet heroes that is included in every single one of her books. Definitely add this series to your list!

 

8. What to do With a Bad Boy by Marie Harte 

MHe

This was one of the first books I read at the beginning of the year and it was a part of a series that made Marie Harte into one of my favorite authors and placed her high on my auto-buy list. The 4th book in the McCauley Brother’s series particularly stuck out to me because the heroine Del isn’t like your typical romance book girlfriend. She’s a major tomboy who’s a mechanic, but still has a soft feminine side to. I really enjoyed that juxtaposition in her personality.  The whole series is amazing, but I really loved how Del and Mike came together.

 

9. Mystery Man by Kristen Ashley 

MMKA

HOLY SHIT! This book. Sooooo many feels! This is my last read of 2015 and probably my most favorite if I had to be forced to pick a #1 read of 2015. So many emotions. The angst, frustration, romance, mystery, sexy times and suspense. It had it ALL. I have to admit, my book club has been trying to get me to read this book for the 4 years and every time I tried I could never get into it. I never seemed to be in the mood for it, even though it’s a book by one of my all time favorite authors. I’m so glad that I didn’t give up, because I absolutely fell in love with Gwen & Hawk. Gwen’s character was so easy to relate to and Hawk was the usual angst inducing KA alpha. She definitely has her own brand of sexy super alpha males. Many a time I wanted to throw my e-reader across the room because I was so frustrated with Hawk. In my book, that is the sign of a truly good story. If you’ve had this book on your TBR for ages, please don’t hesitate in picking it up. You’ll be in for the ride of your life!

 

10. Easy Melody by Kristen Proby 

KP

I usually gobble up Kristen Proby’s books like candy, as she is an all time favorite of mine. This new family saga of hers wasn’t any different. I fell head over heels in love with Eli Boudreaux who is a sexy southern charmer and the city of New Orleans which felt like another character. This book definitely made me want to visit the beautiful city of NOLA as soon as I possible could. I also love the family aspect that Kristen portrays in all of her series. Makes you wish you could be apart of these fictional families as well. If you’ve never read anything by her, this is a great jumping off point.

 

What’s on your list for favorite books of 2015?

The Lie AMAZONTheir love led to a lie.

Their truth led to the end.

Scottish enigma Brigs McGregor is crawling out from the ashes. After losing his wife and son in a car accident – and, subsequently, his job – he’s finally moving forward with his life, securing a prestigious teaching position at the University of London and starting a new chapter in the city. Slowly, but surely, he’s pushing past the guilt and putting his tragic past behind him.

Until he sees her.

Natasha Trudeau once loved a man so much she thought she’d die without him. But their love was wrong, doomed from the start, and when their world crashed around them, Natasha was nearly buried in the rubble. It took years of moving on to forget him, and now that she’s in London, she’s ready to start over again.

Until she sees him.

Because some loves are too dangerous to ever rekindle.

And some loves are too powerful to ignore.

Can you ever have a second chance at a love that ruined you?

The Lie is a second-chance romance with a dark, forbidden twist.

Dirty Billionaire: Release Date 12/08/2015

I’ve got a big dick and an even bigger bank account. That’s pretty much where my bio ends.

Honestly, I don’t need to say anything else. I’ve just sold 99% of women on going home with me.

Do I sound like an asshole to you?

That’s because I am.

And guess what? It works for me just fine.

Or at least it did.

Until I met her.

Books talk about sparks flying. Fuck that shit. With her, it was like emergency flares mixed with jet fuel. Or maybe just straight up napalm.

Only one problem.

She wouldn’t tell me her name or her number when she disappeared from the hotel room after the hottest fucking night of my life.

Now I’ve had a taste of unicorn pussy–the sweetest, rarest of all pussy–and I need it again.

So what’s an asshole to do?

I took this problem to the street. A missed connection gone viral.

And when I find her? I’m keeping her.

My Review
1450737092086
This was the perfect dirty, quick, sweet treat pick me up that I was looking for. I already love any and everything that Meghan March writes so when I heard that she was writing a billionaire trilogy, I immediately put the release dates on my book calendar. I knew going in that series was going to be a little bit different than her Beneath series and I was not disappointed at all.
We first meet rising country singing superstar, Holly Wix (think Miranda Lambert)  as her life is at a crossroads. She’s been pressured by her record company into an arranged celebrity relationship with another established country star who is a man whore. She really doesn’t want to be in this farce of a relationship, but the record company basically owns her soul at this point. Holly just wants to concentrate on her music and career, but she’s gotten caught up in the tabloid spotlight instead.
Creighton Karas is an alpha playboy billionaire. He’s demanding and dominant. He’s selfish, stubborn, and an unapologetic asshole. The minute he lays eyes on Holly, he becomes extremely possessive. From there their relationship becomes one of push and pull. Creighton wants Holly to become a submissive in some aspects of their relationship. but Holly doesn’t want that. She is so used to being an independent soul, that she doesn’t realize all that entails being Creighton’s submissive.
I absolutely loved every part of this book. Even though this was a novella length book, I didn’t feel like the story was rushed along or anything was left out. There is a bit of a cliffhanger at the end of this book, but we don’t have to wait very long for the next installment. Awesome job, miss Meghan March!

Holly

COUNTRY STAR JC HUGHES CAUGHT BETWEEN A COCK AND A HARD PLACE

How is he going to explain this one away to girlfriend Holly Wix and his fans?

“That two-timin’ son of a . . .”

I hiss under my breath as I stare at the headline—and the compromising picture accompanying it—splashed in vivid color across the front page of the gossip rag displayed prominently in the checkout line at my supermarket. For the second time in two months, it’s a picture of my “boyfriend” locked in an unmistakably passionate embrace with another woman, except this time she’s wearing a giant black strap-on.

The edges of the paper crumple in my sweaty grip, and I fight the urge to tear it to shreds, along with every copy sitting on the rack in front of me.

He’s going to destroy my career before it even has a chance to become a reality.

One year, they said. One year in this joke of a “relationship” and I’d earn my stripes, be all set in the world of country music. Judge me all you want for agreeing, but when your brand-new record label puts something like that in the contract that will jet you out of the backwoods town you’re dying to escape, you don’t ask questions. You sign on the dotted line.

But reality is a cold slap in the face, and some days it hits you when you’re standing in line at the grocery store. What happens when they finally catch JC with a guy? His habit of swinging both ways, but preferring men to women, is about to become the worst-kept secret in Nashville.

I’m Holly Wix, winner of a make-me-a-star TV show, and handpicked by the label to buoy JC’s once-impressive but now flagging career. It didn’t seem like a big deal when they slipped it into my contract in the beginning. What starry-eyed girl wouldn’t be thrilled to have her name linked to a country star?

Instead of the one-way ticket to stardom I naively expected, I’m becoming the butt of every industry joke faster than the guys back home can spend their paycheck on twelve-packs and scratch-offs. But I’ve got one shot at keeping this dream career alive, and honestly, there’s nothing I wouldn’t do to save it. So this situation with JC needs to get settled before things spiral further out of control.

Say You’re Mine by Diane Alberts Excerpt

SYM_BlogTour

Today I have a steamy excerpt of one of my favorite books of 2015, Say You’re Mine by the amazing Diane Alberts. This is the fifth book in the Shillings Agency series and you won’t regret picking this one up! It was just the pick me up I was looking for. Here’s my 5 cubes of sugar review!

 

Blurb: 

She’s a challenge he can’t afford to lose…

Navy SEAL Steven Thomas has only ever been able to count on three things: waking up in the morning, going to sleep sometime during the night, and Lauren Brixton. She’s been his best friend since grade school, and what they have is the only relationship he’s managed not to ruin.

Until one drunken night puts that all in jeopardy.

Lauren’s watched Steven flit from one-night stand to one-night stand, seemingly not interested in something more. So when the long-ignored attraction between the two of them blows up in their faces, she does the only thing she can—she pretends she doesn’t want him. But all’s fair in love and war, and Steven’s not about to lose the only person in his life who matters…

 

SayYoureMine_500

Excerpt: 

Her hands drifted down his back and over his shoulders, where she fisted his shirt. She urged him closer, like she couldn’t get enough, and pushed against his hard, aching dick. This kiss, this moment, was something he couldn’t express with mere words. It’s like the whole world shifted and changed, all because he kissed Lauren.
And the thing was, it didn’t feel like a bad change.
Rolling her nipples in between his fingers and thumbs, he tugged and rocked his hips into her, cursing the clothes that kept him from plunging inside her warm depths once and for all. Gliding his hands down her smooth skin, he cupped her ass, learning the feel of it in his hands. It felt like fucking heaven.
Like she belonged in his arms.
She cried out, arching her back and rolling her hips in a figure eight motion. She dug her heels into his lower back impatiently. Her urgency was a tangible thing, and she was close to the edge. All she needed was a little push. He could give her that, at least.
Breaking off the kiss, he bit down on her shoulder and thrust against her again, letting his hard dick hit her clit. She moaned and moved against him frantically, letting go of his shirt to bury her hands in his hair. Tugging, she lifted his head till they were nose- to-nose, looked him in the eyes, and said, “I need you to make me come now.”
And then she kissed him.
Something inside of him snapped. There was no controlled seduction. No slow, easy moves meant to tease her and draw her higher. She wanted him to make her come? Well, then, she’d get it. No games. No teasing. Just orgasms.
Whatever she asked for, he gave her.
That wouldn’t change now.

Distraction: The great intensity, novelty, or attractiveness of something other than the object of attention.

Sven is a man who takes pride in his ability to separate himself from his emotions. He’s a man who knows who he is and where he’s going in life, a man who needs no one, because needing someone, anyone, is a weakness.

His past taught him love isn’t enough.  

Maggie wants the happily ever after, but has never picked the right men, or stuck around long enough, to build a forever. It’s always been easier to get out early, before emotions make things messy.

 

When Maggie wakes up naked in Sven’s bed, with no memory of the night before, these two must be honest about their feelings and face their fears, so they can build a future together.

Will love be enough for them to get their happy ending together, or will a threat from outside strike them down before they ever have a chance?

About LOVE IN THE LIGHT (Hearts in Darkness Duet #2):

Two hearts in the darkness…

Makenna James and Caden Grayson have been inseparable since the day they were trapped in a pitch-black elevator and found acceptance and love in the arms of a stranger. Makenna hopes that night put them on the path to forever—which can’t happen until she introduces her tattooed, pierced, and scarred boyfriend to her father and three over-protective brothers.

Must fight for love in the light…

Dirtiest Secret by J. Kenner Excerpt Reveal

dsexcerptrevealbanner

From the New York Times bestselling author of such “racy, sizzling Stark novels” (RT Book Reviews) as Release Me and Say My Name comes the provocative first Stark International Novel—the beginning of the S.I.N. series.

It was wrong for us to be together, but it was even harder to be apart.

The memory of Dallas Sykes burns inside of me.

Everyone knows him as a notorious playboy, a man for whom women and money are no object. But to me, he’s still the one man I desperately crave—yet the one I can never have.

Dallas knows me better than anyone else. We bear the same scars, the same darkness in our past. I thought I could move on by staying away, but now that we’re drawn together once more, I can’t fight the force of our attraction or the temptation to make him mine.

We’ve tried to maintain control, not letting ourselves give in to desire. And for so long we’ve told ourselves no—but now it’s finally time to say yes.

Dirtiest Secret is intended for mature audiences.

EXCERPT

Even by Southampton standards, the party at the nine-thousand-square-foot mansion on Meadow Lane reeked of extravagance.

Grammy Award–winning artists performed on an outdoor stage that had been set up on the lush lawn that flowed from the main house to the tennis courts. Celebrities hobnobbed with models who flirted with Wall Street tycoons who discussed stock prices with tech gurus and old-money academics, all while sampling fine scotch and the season’s chicest gin. Colored lights illuminated the grotto style pool, upon which nude models floated lazily on air mattresses, their bodies used by artisan sushi chefs as presentation platters for epicurean delights.

Each female guest received a Hermès Birkin bag and each male received a limited edition Hublot watch, and the exclamations of delight—from both the men and the women—rivaled the boom of the fireworks that exploded over Shinnecock Bay at precisely ten p.m., perfectly timed to distract the guests from the bustle of the staff switching out the dinner buffet for the spread of desserts, coffee, and liqueurs.

No expense had been spared, no desire or craving or indulgence overlooked. Nothing had been left to chance, and every person in attendance agreed that the party was the Must Attend event of the season, if not of the year. Hell, if not of the decade.

Everyone who was anyone was there, under the stars on the four acre lot on Billionaires’ Row.

Everyone, that is, except the billionaire who was actually hosting the party. And speculation as to where he was, what he was doing, and who he was doing it with ripped through the well-liquored and gossip-hungry crowd like wildfire in a windstorm.

“No idea where he could have disappeared off to, but I’d bet good money he’s not pining away in solitude,” said a reed-thin man with salt-and-pepper hair and an expression that suggested disapproval but was most likely envy.

“I swear I came five times,” a perky blonde announced to her best friend in the kind of stage whisper designed to attract attention. “The man’s a master in bed.”

“He’s got a shrewd head for business, that one,” said a Wall Street trader, “but no sense of propriety where his cock is concerned.”

“Oh, honey, no. He’s not relationship material.” A brunette celebrating a recently inked modeling contract shivered as if reliving a moment of ecstasy. “He’s like fine chocolate. Meant to be savored in very limited quantities. But so damn good when you have it.”

“More power to him if he can grab that much pussy.” A hipster with beard stubble and a man-bun wiped his wire-rimmed glasses clean with his shirttail. “But why the fuck does he have to be so blatant about it?”

“All of my friends have had him.” The petite redhead who pulled in a six figure wife bonus smiled slowly, and the flash of her green eyes suggested that she was the cat and he was the delicious cream. “But I’m the only one of us to enjoy a second helping.”

“All your friends?”

“How much pussy?”

“At least half the women here tonight. Maybe more.”

“Man, don’t even ask that. Just trust me. Dallas Sykes is the King of Fuck. You and me? Mere mortals like us can’t even compare.”
