TBR Update

My TBR is always growing and I want to read all the books, I really do, but that’s not possible because work, kids, writing and life. These are just a handful of the books I’ve heard great things about, but still haven’t read. Maybe something here will strike your fancy.

Leaving New York City and returning to her hometown to teach a screenplay writing class seems like just the break Grace Montgomery needs. Until her sisters wake her at four thirty in the morning to watch the hottest guys in town train wild horses and she realizes that escaping her sisters’ drama-filled lives was a lot easier from hundreds of miles away. To make matters worse, she spots the one man she never wanted to see again—ruggedly handsome Reed Cross.

Reed was one of Michigan’s leading historical preservation experts, but on the heels of catching his girlfriend in bed with his business partner, his uncle suffers a heart attack. Reed cuts all ties and returns home to Oak Falls to run his uncle’s business. A chance encounter with Grace, his first love, brings back memories he’s spent years trying to escape.

Grace is bound and determined not to fall under Reed’s spell again—and Reed wants more than another taste of the woman he’s never forgotten. When a midnight party brings them together, passion ignites and old wounds are opened. Grace sets down the ground rules for the next three weeks. No touching, no kissing, and if she has it her way, no breathing, because every breath he takes steals her ability to think. But Reed has other ideas… Embracing Her Heart on Amazon.

Dimitri by Shandi Boyes

Famiglia prima di tutto. Family first of all. That’s the motto the Petrettis lived by when New York was governed by the Italian Cartel, and our name was worth something. Now, it’s disrespected. Now, it’s tainted with hate. I had plans to alter that, but the game changed when my pregnant wife was kidnapped by a rival. Her body was never found, and I’ve paid to guarantee our daughter’s safety ever since. During the day, I’m a businessman in a tailored suit. At night, I’m an avenger who’ll do whatever it takes to get his daughter back. My father may have forgotten the morals our ancestors ruled with, however, I cannot. My daughter is the princess of the Italian Cartel, and she will be protected accordingly. I just need to get a pesky redhead with gleaming green eyes out of my head first. Her entrance into my life could ruin everything, including her very existence. Dimitri is book one in the highly anticipated Italian Cartel series by bestselling author Shandi Boyes. It’s a new series with gritty males and the women who bring them to their knees. Dmitri on Amazon.

The Bequest by Hope Anika

Cheyenne Elias has inherited a child. A boy she doesn’t know and doesn’t particularly want; a boy whose mother was once Cheyenne’s most hated person in the world. There are a million reasons to walk away: her anger, her past, her certainty that there is nothing benevolent in this act by a woman who almost killed her. But abandoning the boy to a system she barely survived is not an option.

Will Blackheart has lost everything. His SEAL team, his country, and—upon occasion—his mind. Worse, he’s lost something that has the capacity to kill thousands. Left for dead in the Afghan desert, Will has risen solely to regain that which was taken…and to punish those who dared take it.

His only lead is the son of a dead woman. Her only goal is to save a child. As they come together in a clash of anger, mistrust, and potent, unwanted desire, Will and Cheyenne must put aside their differences and navigate the endgame of a woman for whom nothing was taboo… The Bequest on Amazon.
