It’s only the fourth of January and already read some of the most amazing books have been released or soon to be released by some of the best authors.
Let’s start with Jessica Hawkins new release from December 28th, Right Where I Want You is an enemy to lovers, forbidden office romance giving us the light-hearted banter, some of the most laugh out loud scenes, (elevator) and the hottest love story since Lake and Manning. You are going to fall in love with Sebastian & Georgina, their story, their friends, and the dogs!
Next up is A Place Without You by Jewel E. Ann published on January 1th a little earlier than expected which is always welcomed. The Law of Henna and Bodhi: When love breaks, fall inward, fall together, and fall hard. Then let time pick up the pieces. Everything feels temporary when you’ve experienced tragedy—until Henna Lane meets Bodhi at a music festival. Young and spontaneous, they have a lust for seizing the moment, falling hard and fast. When Bodhi is forced to leave without a goodbye, Henna thinks she’ll never get over him. But then she meets Mr. Malone, her sexy, new guidance counselor. They are reckless. They are forbidden. When their secret is discovered, Henna has to choose between finishing school—banned from seeing Mr. Malone—or dropping out to follow her nomad dreams. Henna chooses her dreams. Over time, she learns that life is not a destination or a journey, some things are more than temporary, and the forbidden can never be ignored. But if she returns for him, will he still be hers? A Place Without You is an emotional story of young love, shattered dreams, and impossible decisions.
Wow, this was not was I was expecting and it’s just so much more. There is no other way to explain this story, it’s more than love at first sight, it’s more than forbidden love, it hits every emotional button and then some, “well it’s like a white T-shirt with french fries and ketchup. It’s messy but worth the risk”. I hope you add this to your TBR pile.
On January 8th two long awaited books will be released.
Promises by Aleatha Romig is the final book of the Web of Sins trilogy. As the title implies Aleatha gives us all the answers we were waiting for from Secrets and Lies and she delivers like no other Author can. She can spin the yarn with the best of the best! So, if you haven’t read Secrets or Lies, (book 1 & 2) in this trilogy now is the time to catch up.

Elliot Garnet has never been popular. His aptitude and single-minded focus on success has earned him a fortune but has led to a solitary existence and a desire to keep his private life private.
