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.

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.

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.

Here’s a randomly created post for your Friday!

Who doesn’t like free books? Exactly. Here’s a list of books I randomly found free on Amazon this morning after falling down rabbit hole after rabbit hole.

I know of some of them and had bought them before today, but I haven’t read them. Now we can all have the same books and possibly find a great next read.

If you found freebies yourself and want to share, go ahead. That’s what the comments section is for! And if you want to see more posts like this, please comment about that, as well. I’ll make more if the demand is there.

New Release: People Kill People, by @EllenHopkinsLit

People Kill People

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

Someone will shoot. And someone will die.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Ellen Hopkins tackles gun violence and white supremacy in this compelling and complex novel.

People kill people. Guns just make it easier

A gun is sold in the classifieds after killing a spouse, bought by a teenager for needed protection. But which was it? Each has the incentive to pick up a gun, to fire it. Was it Rand or Cami, married teenagers with a young son? Was it Silas or Ashlyn, members of a white supremacist youth organization? Daniel, who fears retaliation because of his race, who possessively clings to Grace, the love of his life? Or Noelle, who lost everything after a devastating accident, and has sunk quietly into depression?

One tense week brings all six people into close contact in a town wrought with political and personal tensions. Someone will fire. And someone will die. But who?

Kiss the Girl

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

A struggling antiques collector finds herself falling in love with a millionaire playboy; but can she ever be a part of his world? 

Meet the Naughty Princess Club, a series from USA Today bestselling author Tara Sivec that brings readers to Fairytale Lane and the hilarity—and romance—that three women fall into once they decide to strut their stuff and bring on their own happily ever after.

While her friends have broken free of their insecurities, Ariel Waters is struggling to come out of her shell. Her ex-husband took away her voice and her self-confidence, and Ariel is drowning under a sea of debt to afford the alimony she has to pay him. She refuses to ever fall for a man’s charms again, and is determined to make her own way.

When her house and her beloved antiques are taken by the bank after too many missed payments, Ariel finds herself adrift until the infuriatingly charming Eric Sailor comes to her rescue. Although she can’t stand the millionaire playboy, Eric’s kindness and unconditional support reveal hidden depths and a love that Ariel never imagined she could find. 

But there are outside influences who will stop at nothing to keep them apart; can Ariel and Eric weather the storm and find a way to be together?
