Here it is almost Sunday – time for In My Mailbox. I’ve just had the opportunity to read the Saturday post at The Story Siren. It’s been a rough week for book bloggers 🙁 I must admit, although I started book blogging to give myself a outlet for my opinions of the books I read, I have had the opportunity to meet some people that are pretty passionate about books. I’ve also had the opportunity to read some pretty interesting books. Books that 8 months ago I wouldn’t have considered reading. Although I’ll always have my favorite authors, book bloggers like Kristi and others have introduced me to new authors, new books and even new genres!
I may be a book blogger, but I’m also a reader. I’m the person who gets a latte and wanders the aisles looking for something new to buy. And buy, I do! The only thing my family gets me for Christmas or birthdays (other than Starbucks cards) is bookstore gift cards 🙂
I love the IMM meme! It gives me the opportunity each week to find new books to read. My husband claims that my TBR pile needs it own room, but ultimately he’s happy I have someone to talk to about books 🙂
Without further ado, it’s time for me to share what I got this week! Not to brag, but to share what potentially exciting new books I’ll be reading this coming week:) Then I’ll wander from blog to blog finding new ideas of what to add to my wish list.
This week was another week of Indie authors. Let’s hope that this group will be as good as last week!
Copping To It by Ava Meyer – When Claire meets undercover cop Ty Williamson, she fears revealing her inner vixen. Then she’s captured by a gang of bikers that Ty has infiltrated. Ordered to have public sex with Claire, Ty just wants to get her to safety – until he sees the desire burning in her eyes. Now Ty will prove he wants all of her: the good with the bad. In fact, the badder Claire is, the better they’ll be-together.
Staking Claim by Madison Scott – Workaholic Gabrielle Ellis never lets her relationships make it past a couple dates. The sooner she can ditch them, the less chance they might leave her. Of course, she never picks the kind of guys she’d want anything long term with anyway… After a night out celebrating, yet another escape from her jackass of the week, and her upcoming move, she wakes up in her best friend’s truck in the middle of nowhere.
According to Jake Marshal, she dumps every guy she dates for one reason–they’re not him. He promises her, if she’ll just let go and allow herself to feel, she’ll know she belongs in his bed, forever. Jake, consummate bachelor and participant in her hidden fantasies, wants to stake his claim. On her. As much as she wants him, she’s scared, too. After one touch, Gabrielle knows she doesn’t stand a chance because Jake always gets what he wants. But just maybe, she’s been his all along.
Ethan’s Chase by Bronwyn Storm- Still wounded from a disastrous love affair, advertising executive Ethan Phillips has spent the past five years outwitting Cupid with a series of dekes and fakes. Who knew the tricky cherub would get wise? Rather than piercing Ethan’s heart with an arrow, he douses it with amaretto-flavored milk. A quick visit to the drycleaner and a stern lecture on the dangers of gorgeous, charming women, and he figures he’s made another clean getaway.
But when the sexy woman turns out to be Chase Logan, his new systems programmer, Ethan’s got no where to run. Her charm, humor and intelligence soon have his heart racing and his libido revving. Suddenly, the man who spent his time running from Cupid, is now looking to borrow a few arrows. Ethan’s ready to give chase and pursue love. Will he catch the heart of his programmer or just be left catching his breath?
