New Romance Postcast: @readmeromance

I haven’t talked about podcasts here in awhile, but today is a good day to bring up the topic again.

My past podcast discussions have been about bookish discussion podcasts. Today I have something a little different for all of you. This morning I discovered (randomly on Instagram) a recently started podcast from Tessa Bailey and Alexa Riley. The podcast is Read Me Romance. And it’s not your normal podcast. What it is, is a podcast that will be bringing listeners brand new, not-in-print/ebook-yet romance novellas in audiobook form…for FREE!!!!! And I think we all lucked out. The first novella, which is from Alexa Riley, is complete and you can binge on it today!

That’s probably all the convincing I need to have to get you to check out the podcast. Here are some links for you to check it out and find out more.

New Release: The Last Wish of Sasha Cade by @NormalChey

b3459-goodreads-badge-add-plus-2d25bb0f32eeac8660c13a521cf00c8e

The day Raquel has been dreading for months has finally arrived. Sasha, her best friend in the whole world, has died of cancer. Overwhelmed and brokenhearted, Raquel can’t even imagine life without her. 

And then a letter from Sasha arrives. Has she somehow found a way to communicate from beyond the grave?

In fact, Sasha spent her final weeks planning an elaborate scavenger hunt for the friend she would have to leave behind. When Raquel follows the instructions to return to Sasha’s grave, a mysterious stranger with striking eyes is waiting for her. There’s a secret attached to this boy that only Sasha — and now Raquel — knows.

This boy, Elijah, might be just who Raquel needs to help her move on from her terrible loss. But can Raquel remain true to herself while also honoring her friend’s final wish? 

Cheyanne Young’s compulsively readable breakout novel offers abiding friendship and forbidden romance, along with an incisive look at how class differences shape who we are and who we grow to be.

Holiday Romance Month 2018 is coming up fast!

Is that scary? It’s almost October, so I’m starting to think about my blog plans for December. Last year I turned December into Holiday Romance Month. You can check out all those posts HERE.

I’m hoping to do that same thing this December. But I need your help to freshen it up. I can’t just share the same books each year. With the plethora of holiday books that come out each year, I can stumble upon many on my own. Though, that’s no fun. I’d love for authors out there to tell me about their books and be part of HRM 2018. I hope it’ll bring to my attention and my readers’ attentions all the great books out there this time, instead of my more limited Holiday Romance world view of stumbling around for them.

If you’re interested in having your book featured or are just a reader who wants to talk about Holiday Romances, here’s a form to fill out.

Themed Book Recommendations: Friends-to-Lovers

This week’s theme came from a suggestion Talia Hibbert made on Twitter. I asked for suggestions of future themes for recs…and Talia asked for a hard one: Supernatural Friends-to-Lovers. I decided to turn that into three themes: Friends-to-Lovers (which you get today), Supernatural, and Supernatural Friends-to-Lovers.

This theme wasn’t very hard to fill up. But the next two will be a challenge. I hope some of you will help me out with your recommendations! I’ll need all the help I can get. And remember SUPERNATURAL, not Paranormal. There’s a difference.

New Release: Intercepted, by @AlexMBooks

b3459-goodreads-badge-add-plus-2d25bb0f32eeac8660c13a521cf00c8e

Marlee thought she scored the man of her dreams only to be scorched by a bad breakup. But there’s a new player on the horizon, and he’s in a league of his own…

Marlee Harper is the perfect girlfriend. She’s definitely had enough practice by dating her NFL-star boyfriend for the last ten years. But when she discovers he has been tackling other women on the sly, she vows to never date an athlete again. There’s just one problem: Gavin Pope, the new hotshot quarterback and a fling from the past, has Marlee in his sights.

Gavin fights to show Marlee he’s nothing like her ex. Unfortunately, not everyone is ready to let her escape her past. The team’s wives, who never led the welcome wagon, are not happy with Marlee’s return. They have only one thing on their minds: taking her down. But when the gossip makes Marlee public enemy number one, she worries about more than just her reputation.

Between their own fumbles and the wicked wives, it will take a Hail Mary for Marlee and Gavin’s relationship to survive the season.
