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

In My Mailbox (93)


In My Mailbox is something was that started over at The Story Siren and I think it’s pretty awesome. It’s a way to showcase the books that you gotten through different places. Books you gotten in the mail, brought from a store, borrowed from the library, received to write a review, or they can be in eBook form. Here's a link to see how it all started.

Listed  (Listed Volume II & III) by Noelle Adams {ebook}

A marriage of convenience has never been like this.
          Just before her eighteenth birthday, the doctors tell Emily she has three months to live. Not much time to complete the bucket list she's had since she was twelve. The first item is the hardest--"Get married"--so she turns to the only man she knows who can help.

           Paul, a barely reformed bad boy, has inherited a fortune from his mother, but his life is defined by his conflicted relationship with his father--a white-collar, organized-crime boss who, thanks to Paul, is being brought up on federal charges. Without Emily's testimony, his father might walk, so Paul agrees to her unconventional proposal. He'll be her husband for her last three months.
          They agree that she'll testify against his father and he'll help her complete her bucket list. It's not supposed to be a true marriage. No consummation. No future. No love.
          No love.
She's supposed to die, after all, and love might not be enough.

Waiting for You by Shey Stahl {ebook}

               Bailey Gray is tired of her perfectly planned life. Everything about her life has been organized and lived out to the expectations set of her parents. She is the class valedictorian, has perfect grades, the perfect friends, a perfect boyfriend, basically perfect life...or so everyone thought. That's when she realizes the path planned isn't always the path chosen. 
          On graduation day she makes a decision. One that changes everything she thought she knew about her intended future.

           On a whim, she runs away with the town rebel, Dylan Wade, in search of the unknown.
          Dylan Wade isn't looking to run away from anything.
He knows what he wants as he's been waiting on it for years.

          On a journey to find the unknown, they discover a friendship they once knew along the open highway and have not a care in the world. Between the yellow and white lines of the heated summer asphalt, a spark draws them together as Dylan's past and Bailey future try to ripe them apart.
          Could it be that Dylan and his GTO are exactly what her perfectly planned life needs?          

Falling Stars (Falling Stars #1) by Sadie Grubor {ebook}

'A falling, or shooting, star, is the common name for the visible path of a meteoroid if it survives impact with the Earth's surface.'

          Christopher Mason, the infamous lead singer of The Forgotten, has a reputation for being 'difficult'. Harboring dark memories and the burden of a painful secret, he struggles with a past he desperately wants to destroy. Amidst this star's battle with the pull of his demons, he risks losing everything he’s built as a musician. 

          Enter Mia Ryder, the head strong yet laid back, lead singer of Hushed Mentality. As the opening act for The Forgotten, Mia and her all girl rock band are sure to gain the publicity needed to sky rocket to the next level in their dream career. 

           Mia's laidback personality is challenged by Chris’s plotting for their demise and removal of the 'girlie band' from 'his' tour. But even Chris's best laid plans aren't prepared for Mia. 
          As the demons pull this shining star down, is the one person he wants to eliminate the only person who can save him from the collision course he is on?

Dominion (Guardian Angels #1) by Melody Manful {ebook}

I Dare You.
Look Over Your Shoulders.
Do You See Them?

They are always behind you.

As she gets to know Gideon, she begins to remember pieces of her nightmare, and was shocked when Gideon turned out to be the creature from her nightmare. Who is Gideon really?

Most Likely to Succeed (Girls Most Likely to. . . #1) by Kate Davies

               Ten years after being voted Most Likely to Succeed, Kelsey Moore is still living in her hometown, still working in her family's flower shop, and too embarrassed to attend her high school reunion. Only the chance to reconnect with her study buddy—and secret crush—Nathan Barrow tempts her to go.
          Nathan isn't sure why he came back for the reunion after spending the past decade working abroad. But when he runs into his former lab partner, Kelsey, he's sure glad he did. The chemistry between them is as potent as ever, and when she offers him a weekend of wild, no-strings-attached sex, Nathan knows he'd be a fool to say no.

           Nathan can't be tied to one place for long. But the more time they spend together—in and out of bed—the more Kelsey wonders if their reunion could become something more permanent. That is, if Nathan is still interested when he finds out she's been less than honest with him about her life since graduation…

Waking Up to You by Leslie Kelly


Getting dirty with the gardener... Hollywood costume designer Candace Reid would do anything for her gay best friend-even marry him! But before giving up on sex for a while, she needs that last fling. Only, when her injured grandfather asks for her help with his struggling Napa vineyard, her plan for Naughty Time is completely kiboshed....

Then she meets the mouthwateringly hot new groundskeeper, Oliver McKean, and it's a case of instant lust. And damned if Oliver doesn't seem as hungry as she is....

Before long, Candace is gettin' naughty with the hired help. But her secret is bound to come out eventually. And when it does, she'll have to choose between a promise to her dearest friend...and the man whose body she can't live without.


               She's going to take her life back...one sizzling night at a time! It used to be Nicky Sinclair's nightmares that kept her up all night; those 3:00 a.m. silences were her worst enemy. So now she's following doctor's orders-rest, relaxation and plenty of therapeutic Spanish sunshine. 
          Only she hasn't counted on sharing her tranquil retreat with her best friend's brother, Rafael, whose presence is anything but peaceful! With his beguiling eyes and smoldering smile, he quickly becomes a very welcome distraction. After all, if she's struggling to sleep, why not find something else to do with her time...?

Jungle Inferno (Phoenix Agency #1) by Desiree Holt

For Faith and Mark, the telepathic connection they'd shared for years was nothing compared to the scorching physical connection they realized as adults. From the first moment they came together, "erotic" was too pale a word to describe their relationship. Together they explored each other's deepest, darkest desires.

But now Mark, survivor of an ambush to his Delta Force team, is a prisoner of a terrorist group in the Peruvian jungle, and his telepathic communication with Faith is his only contact with the world. While she searches for help to save him, they survive on dreams that take them beyond all sexual boundaries.

A Man for the Summer by Ruby Laska

               Dentist Junior Atkinson left her tiny home town to see if she would fit in better in the big city.
She definitely didn’t.

           Now she’s back, living in the house she grew up in, friendly with every citizen of the two-stoplight town. Things couldn’t be more wonderful. Well, maybe if her patients paid her regularly.
          If there was an eligible man in a fifty-mile radius.
If she hadn’t just been told that a medical condition meant she had only a few more fertile months despite her tender age of twenty-eight.
          Junior barely has time to digest this news when she finds hunky travel writer Griff Ross in her chair with a hell of a toothache.
