I must say that I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book. --Groucho Marx

T.G.I.F (23)

TGIF is a fun little feature hosted by Ginger @ GReads! Every week we re-cap what has happened on the blog plus Ginger asks a question for us to answer. This week’ question is: Recommend It: Which book from the last 10 you’ve read would you recommend to a friends?

As always Ginger asked a very good question.

If I only had to pick from the last ten books that I read then the list is limited. And it wasn’t hard to pick from the list, I only have three books for you.

Forever Mine by Elizabeth Reyes book one of the Moreno Brothers series. 
It was really sweet and so cute, I will read the rest of the series.
Mature YA-romance 

            Seventeen-year old Sarah’s life is turned upside down when her single mom is sent to jail. She’s forced to move, leaving behind everything she’s ever known, including her best friend Sydney. Lost and bitter in a new school, her one goal is to save money and move back home. Then she meets Angel Moreno. 
           Enigmatic but gorgeous, Angel is almost too good to be true. Except for one thing, his archaic belief that guys and girls can never be “just friends”. The problem? Sarah’s best friend Sydney is not a girl. 
            With their unexpected romance intensifying to places neither ever experienced, how long can Sarah keep Angel in the dark about the guy waiting for her back home?

 This book is only 99cent for both kindle and nook

Alpha Instinct by Kate Reus book one in the Moon Shifter series. 
It was more suspense than romance but it was really good and sad in some parts.

            Fear has a scent. So does desire… 
            Ana Cordona has been a strong leader for the lupine shifters who survived after all the males and most of the females in her pack were mysteriously poisoned. As tough as she is, with no Alpha male, the pack is vulnerable to the devious shifter Taggart, who wants to claim both their ranch and Ana as his own. When Connor Armstrong comes back into her life, promising protection, it’s almost enough to make Ana forget how he walked out on her before—and reluctantly accept his offer to mate. 
           The minute Connor sees Ana again, it reawakens a raw hunger. He must have her for his bondmate—his wolf cries out for it. But his human side knows he must proceed with caution because of their complicated past. If he is to truly have her body and soul, he must go beyond his burning desire and win back her heart. Whatever it takes, he is determined not to leave her side again. 
            But Taggart and his rival pack are not their only enemies. A human element in town is targeting shifters. Their plan not only threatens Ana and Connor’s future, but the lives of the entire pack…

This book won’t be released until February 7 but is available for pre-order from Amazon and Barnes and Noble

Time Out by Jill Shalvis. 
This one was a cute and heartwarming romance with a splash of sexy.

            Sign up for recreational adult programs now! 
Class: How to Drive Him Crazy 
            Instructional program for women unexpectedly facing the totally dishy guy from their past. Everyone Welcome! 
           NHL coach Mark Diego’s plan to spend his off-season volunteering in his hometown goes awry when he learns that not only is he coaching teenage girls, but that the program is coordinated by energetic (and five feet two inches of trouble) coordinator Rainey Saunders, his childhood friend–and the woman he could never stand to see dating any other guy… 
            When their tempers flare, Mark and Rainey discover their fireworks don’t just burn angry–they burn very, very, hot! But that’ll just sweeten the victory. Because Mark always plays to win. And with Rainey, he’s planning on playing very dirty too…

This book won’t be released until February 21 but is available for pre-order from Amazon and Barnes and Noble

  2. Ooh I shall check out Alpha Instinct, could be right up my street. :)

    Once Upon A Time

  3. I'm slightly confused. Who is the love interest in the first book, Angel or Sydney? Is it a triangle? Sounds like a heart-wrencher!

  4. The three books you posted about all seem pretty interesting. *goes off to scribble down titles* Happy Friday!

  5. So I just went and added all of The Moreno series to my TBR shelf. They sound GOOD! I simply ADORE Jill Shalvis Lucky Harbor series so I think I will need to pick up Time Out.
