Top 5 books coming out in May

 

sinful love

#5 – Sinful Love by Lauren Blakely

Out: 3/29

In the next book of the series, we follow Michael Sloane as he has to open up to the idea of not only admitting he has emotions, but also to the idea of love. He is faced with ghosts from his past that he must confront whether or not he wants to.

The series is a quick but fun read. It has a different couple in each book so you don’t have to worry about waiting for all the books to come out before reading the series (because that’s how I work with some series). While some of the story can be considered ‘cookie-cutter’ I enjoy seeing where the story and Blakely is able to create characters that you just can’t help but root for.

where lightning strikes

#4 – Where Lightning Strikes by AL Jackson

Out: 3/22

In the next book of the series, we follow Tamar King who thought that she was safe inside her own world, until she met Lyrik and he turned her whole world upside down. He forces her to come back to reality and makes her see that sometimes real life can be better than the one you dream up in your head.

The Bleeding Stars series is a series that you can’t help but fall in love with right from the beginning. It does follow a new couple with each book so it helps with following the series. The first two books (and will likely happen in this book) has a lot of passion and romance that mike make you blush if you are in public so be aware.

the great hunt

#3 – The Great Hunt by Wendy Higgins

Out: 3/8

In the first book of a new series, we get adventure, love, and twists and turns around every corner. The story is certainly going to grab you right from the beginning and not let you go until the final book comes out.

I started reading Higgins after a friend recommended reading her last series. I was hesitant at first because I wasn’t sure I would like the paranormal, but I was hooked after one chapter. I became invested with the series and Higgins quickly became that one-click buy author for me. This book is going to be exciting and we know that she can successful write a paranormal series that everyone can love.

walk the edge

#2 – Walk the Edge by Katie McGarry

Out: 3/29

In the next book of the series, we follow Razor as he struggles with his commitment to the Reign of Terror motorcycle club and his commitment to his friends. He knows that Breanna is not good enough for him but when she needs him, he will stop at nothing to make sure that she is safe.

McGarry’s stories are ones that hold you and never let you go. You know that some stuff is going to happen because that is life, but you know that in the end everything will be ok (even if you don’t like it). What I love the most about her books, is that they are the types of books that you will be reading at night and say ‘ok one more chapter’ ten times in a row. They are the ones that sneak up on you and you can’t help but want to read it all in one day.

lady midnight

#1 – Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

Out: 3/8

In the first book of a new spin-off from The Mortal Instruments, we move 5 years from where that series ended. This time we jump into the Blackthorn family and Julian and Emma. They have agreed to be parabatai even though Julian has had a crush on Emma their whole lives. They now go through training to be a Shadowhunter. When Julian’s brother, Mark, comes back from the faeries he has no memory of them and they have to decide if whether or not they can trust him.

This is one of the most anticipated books of the year (at least for me) ever since Clare announced that she was doing another spin-off series. I have gone back and forth with wanting to wait until the whole series is out before reading, but I don’t know if I have the willpower. The series are so in depth and the world is so consuming, that it’s hard to wait. This series is quickly becoming a world like Harry Potter where you want to jump into it and live there forever.

What book are you most excited to read this month?

‘Sinful Love’ by Lauren Blakely cover release

image

Intense. Devoted. Protective.

Michael Sloan is all of the above, with a hard tough edge to boot. He’s not the guy he used to be. Years ago, before all the s&%t went down, he was laidback, carefree, and even happy-go-lucky. 

Life changed him. Hardened him. 

There’s one woman though who can break down his walls. Someone who knew him then. Who can reach inside to that heart he protects fiercely…because she’s the only one he ever gave it to. When they collide, it’s tender and savage, gentle and rough, and makes them both hungry for more of this electric, once-in-a-blue moon kind of sexual chemistry. But it’s a battle of wills between Michael and the woman he loves, with words and emotions held close to the vest.

She doesn’t believe she can ever move on from her own heartache, but when Michael makes her feel for the first time in years, it’s both thrilling and scares the hell out of her, setting off all her flight instincts. He’s determined not to lose her again, but he’ll have to learn to let her in if he ever wants to fully heal from the past…

The problem is, she knows something about the night his family shattered. She has the missing puzzle piece…but neither one of them realizes it.

YET.

SINFUL LOVE is the fourth and final book in the steamy, sexy, suspenseful New York Times Bestselling Sinful Nights series from Lauren Blakely, author of the wildly popular Seductive Nights series…

Excerpt
Chapter One

            The letter smelled like her.

            Like rain.

            He ran his thumb over the corner of the paper, and closed his eyes briefly. Memories rose to the surface, feeling like hope and possibility.

            Far too risky things when it came to her.

            Michael shut them down, opened his eyes, and stared out the floor-to-ceiling windows of his penthouse on the Strip, trying to focus on the here and now, not the enticing lure of what if. Soon, the lights of Vegas would blink like a carnival unfolding below him, from the miniature Eiffel Tower, to the pyramid, to the blazing signs adorning The Cosmopolitan. Neon, glitz, and billboards ten stories high whispered of the best nights ever.

            He had to stay fixed on the minute details of the present, not be seduced by the past, and how good it was. Or of how much he’d longed for a future with her.

            But he wasn’t having the easiest time of that. From his vantage point, twenty stories above the concrete ribbon that beckoned millions of tourists, he brought the letter to his nose for one final inhale.

            The scent of falling rain.

            Try as he might, he gave in. A reel of sensory images rushed back to him in an instant from years ago, like the snap, snap, snap of old film. How many times had he kissed Annalise in the rain? Brushed her wild red hair off her cheeks, touched her soft skin? Listened to her laugh?

            Countless. Just like the times he’d lingered on her over the years, even after that day in Marseilles ten years ago that had damn near slaughtered all his hope left in the world.

            Carefully, he folded up the letter, slid it back into the tiny envelope postmarked from France, and stuffed it into his wallet, next to a crinkled, faded, threadbare note from his father that he’d carried with him through all the years. Her letter had arrived two weeks ago, and he’d read it a thousand times already. He could read it a thousand more times, but it wouldn’t change his answer. The same one he’d emailed back to her.

            Yes.

            It was always yes with her.
