Books inspired by Beauty and the Beast

Saturday, March 18, 2017

Who is excited for the new Beauty and the Beast movie?!?!

I am. 
I totally am.

This movie has been a favorite of might growing up because who doesn't love a good fairytale? And the library, um, hello?! Get my a library of books like that and I'm hooked. Whisper me some sweet nothings surrounded by a few first editions and I'm a happy girl. :-) 

This weekend is actually my 8 year *gulp* anniversary with the Mr. 
So we celebrated by taking mini-bun to the movies with us to see - of course - Beauty and the Beast. I didn't get dinner, but I didn't have to cook either so it's still a win. Besides with all the movie popcorn that fell down my shirt, I had a snack for later. Just Kidding!  

BATB is one of my favorite movies and for the past few weeks, I haven't been able to stop reading stories inspired by it. I've included eight books inspired by the story, new and oldies I've enjoyed. Some of them are more or less my interpretation with a less than perfect hero and a strong female lead that reminds me of Belle. These books are all on amazon (possibly other retailers too). This summer I'll be releasing my own version of the retelling and details on that book will be coming soon. For now though, check out these awesome ones. 

A fantastic story about a girl who can't remember what happened and the man who can't forget how things came to be. Really enjoyable and dark read and the new cover is stunning. 

OMG!! I finished this book the day it released. Amazing! I can't wait for book two and I'm torn up I have to wait for it. I definitely love these dark tales and this one takes place in a mafia world. 

I  reread this book since it came out in 2015 and I fell in love all over again with our grumpy hero Asher and Savannah's persistence to lure him out of his shell. Two misfits who find each other in this contemporary retelling. 

When I'm looking for a sexy tale, Skye Warren never disappoints... I haven't had the chance to read this one, but it looks so good and this is the link for the complete box set of ebooks. It was highly recommended when I asked around for more BATB retellings. 

A husband sells his wife to pay a debt. Lucifer is as beautiful as he is dark. Lily wants her freedom but he won't let her go. He should have just gotten her a library! HA! The way he softens toward her is sweet as she surrenders to him. It's dark and the content not for the faint of heart. 

It's free. First in the series. 
This book is smooth like dark chocolate. Tess is full of moxie and Q - *swoon* he's pretty beastly in my opinion. I love the story between these two. Since it's free you can try it out before getting the other three books in the series. So worth it!

Short, erotic, and $0.99 It's currently on my TBR. 

I'll be honest, I have never read any of this series, but the book came HIGHLY recommended and now I feel like I have been missing out. You know I'll be catching up on this series ASAP. 

Let me know what you think about these retellings and seriously, GO SEE THE MOVIE! 

Recommended Reads of 2/27/17

On the rare chance I have to sit down and read, read, read - I tend to splurge on series when possible. I have to say the Dangerous Royals Series by Annika Martin delivered high. I love the Mafia premise and brothers fighting for their birthright. You get several points of view throughout the books and series as a whole but none of it is distracting or confusing. The story flows with impact and plenty of action balanced by romance between the hero (or sometimes anti-hero) and the heroine. I would consider these novels on the darker side and while I think you can read them just fine as a standalone they are way better read in order, but that's just my opinion. You can also save a few pennies by picking up the whole series here: Dangerous Royals Series

Isn't this cover the bomb? 

Jack and Casey finally have the HEA you've been waiting for...

All FIVE Serials are in this complete standalone story, plus an extra 30k words, new editing, new cover, AND cameos from characters in The Reed Series. <-- That's the part I might be most excited about! If I had to describe this story - it's definitely for the 18 and over crowd. It's light on suspense and heavy on the sexy time. If you want a pretty much over the top CEO and a sassy girl who fall in love and overcome every obstacle in their path, then this is the romance for you.

My Favorite Reads of 2016

Tuesday, December 20, 2016

It's been a busy and at times depressing year, let's face it, I'd like to kick 2016 in the junk but let's all move on already. Books got me through it, and here are some of my top favs that have stood out for me. I don't do spoilers, just recommendations. 

American Queen - by Sierra Simone. 
This book just blew me away. Political intrigue. Threesomes so hot you'll overheat your kindle and that's a promise. This is book one of a duet. American Prince releases in March 2017. 

Black Swan Affair - by K.L. Kreig
She is a new to me author and wow... just wow. Love a good mind screw and a forever kind of love, pick up this book. 

Bleed Blue 69 - Anthology
Not going to lie. I'm in this book with my short story, Rookie, but I love this anthology collection most for it's charity aspect. ALL PROCEEDS are donated to charity. Myself with 24 other awesome authors collaborated on this collection of interwoven police/holiday themed stories. 

DIRTY - by Belle Aurora
Ummm.... this is the story that follows RAW and holy crap it was worth the wait. 
You get the idea. 

Endurance - by Georgia Cates
A spinoff from the The Sin Trilogy, my favorite doctor/nurse couple joins us for their own story and few unexpected twists and turns. It can be read as a standalone but I recommended reading the series from the beginning. 

Filthy Rich - by Raine Miller
A spinoff from The Blackstone series and well worth the wait. Caleb is yummy. 

Ghost Dance - by Catherine Gayle
I love anything written by Ms. Gayle. She is one of my go to authors. She has an amazing backlist but I'm most addicted to her hockey books. 

Marriage Games - by CD Reiss
Book one in her new duet, what would you do to make your failing marriage come together again?
Separation Games releases in 2017.  

Max - by Sawyer Bennet
Super Sweet. Good Guy. After the year we've had, all I want is a good guy for a change. You can read this book as a standalone. 

Mr. President - by Katy Evans
Damn. I love everything she has written. The entire Manwhore series and her spin offs are great. Mr. President is book one of her newest duet, Commander in Chief will release in January, right in time for that pesky inauguration. 

Not So Temporarily Married - by Fiona Davenport
Short story perfect for reading while the Christmas bird is cooking. 

Not Quite Juliet - by Katherine Rhodes
New cover, same great story, part of the Club Imperial series.
Humor and Sex.
Filthy sex.
What's not to love?

Revenge - by M. Stratton
Your favorite killer is back with a new sidekick. It's a bloody good time.
(Bender is book one - read that first!)

Organized crime and unexpected love. 

Top Bottom Switch - by Chelle Bliss
Welcome back to the BDSM club in Karim Texas. This book is part of a larger interwoven series by several authors in The Club. 

Trans-fer-ence - by Ava Harrison
If you loved Compulsive - by Lia Fairchild, you will love Trans-fer-ence for its sexy taboo of patient/therapist dynamic. 

Trust - by Jana Aston
Funny. So fricken funny. I think I laughed at least once a page flip. This is part of her series but can be read as a standalone.

Unexpected Reality - by Kaylee Ryan
Single hot dad and a surprise ending I didn't expect coming. 

Vein of Love - by R. Scarlett
New to me author and I'm eagerly awaiting the next book in this series.

This January is the beginning of my new romantic comedy series. An amazing group of friends who find love. First loves getting a second chance, loves that stand the test of time, and humor to make you pee your pants. Love Under Construction is book one in the Love By Design series. Come meet a sullen, stubborn hero with a 2x4 stuck up his rear about falling in love, and a heroine who has watched every episode of the Property Brothers ready to flip her dream house. Between every construction nightmare possible, animals that need to move out, and friends determined to interfere, what could possible go right? Step into a small town with a big heart, and laugh your way into love. Each book in the LBD series is a standalone HEA romance and I can't wait for you to meet this couple.
