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.

And because of that note, I look for her, but find him. I’m drawn to his passion, his talent, a darkness in him that somehow becomes my light, my life.

Now, he’s seducing me. I know he has secrets. I don’t care. Because you see, I have secrets, too.

I’m not Aria Alard, as he believes. I’m Aria Stradivari, daughter to Alessandro Stradivari, a musician born from the same blood as the man who created the famous Stradivarius violin. I am as rare as the mere 650 instruments my ancestors created. Instruments worth millions. 650 masterpieces, the brilliance unmatched. 650 reasons to kill. 650 reasons to hide.

You Know I Love You by Willow Winters

Book 1 in the seductive duet for Evan and Kat, from Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author, Willow Winters. A high heat and high emotion romance in the tempting and wealthy elite social circles in New York… and all the corruption that comes with it.

I married the bad boy from Brooklyn.

The one with the tattoos and the look in his eyes that told me he was bad news.
The look that comes with all sorts of warnings.

I knew what I was doing.
I knew by the way he put his hands on me; how he owned me with his forceful touch.

I couldn’t say no to him, not that I wanted to. That was then, and it seems like forever ago.

Years later, I’ve grown up and moved on. But he’s still the man I married. Dangerous in ways I don’t like to think about. I did this to myself. I knew better than to fall for him.

I only wish love was enough to fix this…

The Stopover by T.L. Swan
A memorable night of passion refuses to stay just a memory in this sizzling and scandalous romance from bestselling author T L Swan.

I was upgraded to first class on a flight from London to New York.
 The food, champagne, and service were impeccable.
 The blue-eyed man sitting next to me, even better.

He was suave and intelligent.
 We talked and laughed, and something clicked.
 Fate took over and the plane was grounded, and we had an unexpected stopover for the night.
 With no plans, we made our own.

We danced and laughed our way around Boston and had a night of crazy passion that no woman would ever forget.
 That was twelve months ago, and I haven’t heard from him—until today.

I started a new job and met the CEO. You can imagine my surprise to see those naughty blue eyes dance with delight when he saw me across the mahogany desk.
 But I’m not that carefree girl anymore. My life has changed, I have responsibilities.
 I just got an email.

He wants to see me in his office for a private meeting at 8:00 a.m.
 Naughty blue eyes have no place in the workplace.
 What kind of private meeting does he have in mind?

You Were Meant For Me by Kait Nolan

“Just a fling,” she said…

Tess Peyton wanted to do something fun and reckless and wholly out of character. A steamy weekend with a Scotsman seems like a plan. When her Scotsman turns out to be a good Southern boy, that’s a minor deviation. Then one night turns to two, two turns to more, and suddenly she knows she’s in way over her head. This is why one should always stick to the plan.

“Bachelor for life,” he said…

But that was before all of Mitch Campbell’s friends, cousins, and even his little sister started pairing off like someone was building an ark. No wonder he fell, and fell hard, for his “no attachments, no last names” European fling. And just when he’s ready to tell the woman of his dreams that he wants to change that arrangement, she disappears, leaving him with no means of tracking her down, and a big ol’ hole in his heart.

And then Fate stepped in…

Because, guess what? The guy Tess ran out on in Edinburgh shows up at family dinner. He’s her dad’s new wife’s brother’s son. What does that make them? It makes them “on again,” according to Mitch and the explosive chemistry between them. Tess feels it too, along with a side of awkward, continued uncertainty, and some kind of stomach virus that seems to bother her most in the mornings…

Renegade by Brook Wilder
Returning to this place was the last thing I had on my mind.

But that was before I saw Maddie.

Off limits. Forbidden. A wild spitfire.

I can’t get her out of my mind.

Hear her breathe my name.

Getting her pregnant was just the start.

Neither of us could have prepared for what came next.
But I’ll keep her—and our baby—safe.

No matter what.

Lots of banter, awkwardness, jealousy, and heat.

However, after one innocent game of Never Have I Ever, Mac offers to play Love Coach for Freya.

What neither of them see coming are the feelings that develop when the clothes come off.

Now they’re both about to learn the biggest lesson of all: Don’t fall in love with your best friend.
