Next week kicks off three HUGE Tuesday release days in a row, with lots of exciting new books. I’ll be posting tons of reviews throughout the month, and even had to turn down some ARCs that I wanted because the weeks are so packed – especially on the 23rd. So clear out your TBR now and get ready to get reading!
Feb 5: Between the Lines by T. Gephart
Justin Tibbs might be a hot, athletic, and amazing firefighter but he also has a reputation as a manwhore. Tessa Ricci worked too long and too hard to be taken seriously in the NYPD to fall victim to his charm.
Assuming he was interested, which he wasn’t.
Until he was.
And then neither of them was sure who was seducing who.
Feb 7: Drop Dead Gorgeous by Lauren Landish
I see dead people.
No, not like that movie.
I’m a coroner, and yes, that is the kiss of death on my dating life. Everyone says they hope to not see me again soon.
Until I almost, and accidentally, kill Blake Hale with my car.
We couldn’t be more different. He’s all goodness and light, sexy and smart. And safe.
Everyone thinks I’m evil and dark. Danger in a pretty package.
Instead of being freaked out by me like most people, he’s intrigued.
And no matter how much I try to scare him off, he keeps coming back for more.
With each word we exchange, my resolve weakens.
With each heated look, he gets further into my soul.
With every kiss, he consumes me by accepting me just as I am.
And with every touch, not just of my skin but of my mind, he makes me believe that there is more to life.
Feb 7: Surrender by J. Saman
The saying goes, you can never fully put your past behind you.
But that’s exactly what I’ve been trying to do.
One night of chaos nine years ago changed everything for me.
I lost my family. I lost my home.
And I vowed never to let a man be the guiding force in my life again.
That is until Kellin Shaw walks back into it.
A sexy and intriguing stranger I barely knew; he has no idea how closely tied he is to my past all going wrong. A man so impossible to resist I don’t even know how to begin trying.
But he’s got secrets of his own.
A dangerous air about him that both thrills and terrifies me.
If I were smart, I’d run from it all instead of allowing myself to be lured in deeper.
What happens when you surrender yourself to a man who has the power to destroy you?
Feb 9: Nate by Tijan
Nate Monson was gorgeous, obnoxiously wealthy, and a player.
He was also the person who could destroy my world with a single decision.
I walked into that bar looking for him.
He saw me. I saw him.
The chemistry sizzled between us, but no.
I hated Nate Monson.
I hated him with everything in me, even though my body did not.
It didn’t matter.
Nothing I wanted mattered.
He thought I wanted to get laid.
What I wanted was for him to disappear.
But first, I had to tell him that he had a daughter.
Feb 9: Steal My Magnolia by Karla Sorensen
Life lesson from Grady Buchanan: If you’re going to fall in love with the untouchable girl in town, don’t hire her as your only employee.

Her father could ruin his fledgling business.
She is completely overqualified.
And he’s attracted to her.
What does Grady do? He offers her the job.
Magnolia knew better than to take it. Normally, she’d make the safe choice, and working for Grady is anything but.
He’s new in town–and entirely too charming.
Her dad will be furious.
She hates the outdoors and working for an outdoor adventure company is not exactly the right fit.
What does she do? She says yes on the spot.
Grady and Magnolia will have to prove to everyone in their life that they’re not crazy. And prove to each other that the list of why it’s a bad idea should be tossed out the window.
For these two opposites, sometimes doing the wrong thing is exactly right.
Feb 9: My Wicked Heart by T.L. Smith

I am the prized daughter of a family known for their name.

He was locked away.
And I was helpless to stop the mass destruction that followed.
He was wicked to my heart.
And just like poison, the effects can be dangerous.
