Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR list

Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR list:

1) Sweet Seduction Stripped by Nicola Claire
"There are those who become obsessed with what they cannot obtain. Then there are those who already own it, given freely and completely. Guess which one you are." 

 Bad guys come in all sorts of guises, sometimes they can be loving and devoted, and take on the appearance of a businessman. Just ask Amber Lane, she should know. She's been sleeping with the enemy for twenty months and only just now found out who exactly Jaxon Harding is. 

 Thinking her world is crumbling around her, she starts to see danger in every friendly face. Even in those she has called friend for three years. If you can count an on-line acquaintance a good friend. When she decides to hack her chat-room partner to find out if he could be a member of Jaxon's team, she opens up a part of her heart she never knew she had already lost. And it hadn't been lost to her boyfriend. 

 Eric Shaw knows how easily possession can become obsession, at least his good friend Ben Tamati isn't above pointing it all out to him. But when his on-line fantasy becomes a thrilling reality he realises he'd sell his soul to have Amber Lane. But believing the beautiful, intelligent dancer-come-hacker has given him her heart freely is harder to accept. 

 Bomb threats and sinister dealings, manipulative and powerful men, chases through shadowed nightclubs, building collapses and international cyber stalking. Amber's world is nothing like she thought it. Can she survive the obsession of one very bad man? Or will she rejoice in being the possession of one very wicked one? Stripping for a living has nothing on baring your heart and soul.

 Love at first sight has never been so dangerous and so very delicious at the same time.

 I love this series and I can not wait to read this book! That is enough said.

2) Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen
Posing as one of Robin Hood’s thieves to avoid the evil Lord Gisbourne, Scarlet has kept her identity secret from all of Nottinghamshire. Only Big John and Robin Hood know the truth—the agile thief posing as a whip of a boy is actually a fearless young woman with a secret past. It’s getting harder to hide as Gisbourne’s camp seeks to find Scarlet and drive Robin Hood out of Nottinghamshire. 

But Scarlet’s instinct for self-preservation is at war with a strong sense of responsibility to the people who took her in when she was on the run, and she finds it’s not so easy to turn her back on her band and townspeople. As Gisbourne draws closer to Scarlet and puts innocent lives at risk, she must decide how much the people of Nottinghamshire mean to her, especially John Little, a flirtatious fellow outlaw, and Robin, whose quick smiles and temper have the rare power to unsettle Scarlet. 

 Full of exciting action, secrets, and romance, this imaginative retelling of the classic tale will have readers following every move of Robin Hood and band of thieves.

I've seen so many good reviews about this one, and I haven't gotten to it yet, but I can't wait till I do. It looks so interesting. 

3) Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas
An assassin’s loyalties are always in doubt. 
But her heart never wavers. 

 After a year of hard labor in the Salt Mines of Endovier, eighteen-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien has won the king's contest to become the new royal assassin. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown – a secret she hides from even her most intimate confidantes. 

Keeping up the deadly charade—while pretending to do the king's bidding—will test her in frightening new ways, especially when she's given a task that could jeopardize everything she's come to care for. And there are far more dangerous forces gathering on the horizon -- forces that threaten to destroy her entire world, and will surely force Celaena to make a choice. 

 Where do the assassin’s loyalties lie, and who is she most willing to fight for?

I loved the first book in this series because she is a kick butt assassin, so now I can't wait to read this one as she has to face so many more challenges. 

4) The Promise by Kristen Ashley
Since his brother’s death, Benny Bianchi has been nursing his grudge against the woman he thinks led to his brother’s downfall. He does this to bury the feelings he has for Francesca Concetti, his brother’s girl. But when Frankie takes a bullet while on the run with Benny’s cousin’s woman, Benny has to face those feelings. 

 The problem is Frankie has decided she’s paid her penance. Penance she didn’t deserve to pay. She’s done with Benny and the Bianchi family. She’s starting a new life away from Chicago and her heartbreaking history. 

 Benny has decided differently. 

 But Frankie has more demons she’s battling. Demons Benny wants to help her face. But life has landed so many hard knocks on Frankie she’s terrified of believing in the promise of Benny Bianchi and the good life he’s offering. 

 Frankie’s new life leads her to The ‘Burg, where Benny has ties, and she finds she not only hasn’t succeeded in getting away, she’s doesn’t want to.

KA is my favorite author, and I can not wait to read anything she writes. But this book I'm looking forward to more after reading the previous books and seeing these two characters in them I got a feel for them, and now I can not wait to read their story. They are awesome already, so this book has to be spectacular! (well I hope anways)

 5) Opposition by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Katy knows the world changed the night the Luxen came. 

She can't believe Daemon welcomed his race or stood by as his kind threatened to obliterate every last human and hybrid on Earth. But the lines between good and bad have blurred, and love has become an emotion that could destroy her—could destroy them all. 

 Daemon will do anything to save those he loves, even if it means betrayal. 

 They must team with an unlikely enemy if there is any chance of surviving the invasion. But when it quickly becomes impossible to tell friend from foe, and the world is crumbling around them, they may lose everything— even what they cherish most—to ensure the survival of their friends…and mankind. 

 War has come to Earth. And no matter the outcome, the future will never be the same for those left standing.

Wow, just reading the description of this book leaves me with tingles. I can not wait for this. I think it is the last in this series, and I think it is going to be epic!

6) Beautiful Oblivion by Jamie McGuire
Fiercely independent Camille "Cami" Camlin gladly moved on from her childhood before it was over. She has held down a job since before she could drive, and moved into her own apartment after her freshman year of college. Now tending bar at The Red Door, Cami doesn’t have time for much else besides work and classes, until a trip to see her boyfriend is cancelled, leaving her with a first weekend off in almost a year. 

 Trenton Maddox was the king of Eastern State University, dating co-eds before he even graduated high school. His friends wanted to be him, and women wanted to tame him, but after a tragic accident turned his world upside down, Trenton leaves campus to come to grips with the crushing guilt. 

 Eighteen months later, Trenton is living at home with his widower father, and works full-time at a local tattoo parlor to help with the bills. Just when he thinks his life is returning to normal, he notices Cami sitting alone at a table at The Red. 

 As the baby sister of four rowdy brothers, Cami believes she’ll have no problem keeping her new friendship with Trenton Maddox strictly platonic. But when a Maddox boy falls in love, he loves forever—even if she is the only reason their already broken family could fall apart. 

 In the first installment of the Maddox Brothers books, readers can experience the rush of reading Beautiful Disaster for the first time, all over again.

I loved Beautiful Disaster. And after reading it I sometimes wondered what would happen to Travis' brothers later on, and now I'm so excited to get to see it. I can not wait for this book to come out!

7) Burned by Karen Marie Moning
MacKayla Lane and Dani “Mega” O’Malley are back with a vengeance in Burned, the seventh novel in the blockbuster Fever series from #1 New York Times bestselling sensation Karen Marie Moning.

I loved the Fever series by this author, and I really liked the first book in this series too. Even though it bugged me at times I still loved it, and now I can not wait for this book to come. It feels like it is taking forever, but it is mainly because I'm so impatient. I love Dani, and I can't wait till she gets a little older and can experience some romance!

8) The Fault In Our Stars by John Green
Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be completely rewritten.

I've heard so much about this book, and the movie that just came out, so now I'm interested in it. I really love books that have to deal with Cancer, and I bet this one will be good. But I'm waiting till I'm in the mood to cry to read, because I've heard it is very sad. 

9) Beauty and the Mustache by Penny Reid
There are three things you need to know about Ashley Winston: 1) She has six brothers and they all have beards, 2) She is a reader, and 3) She knows how to knit. 

 Former beauty queen, Ashley Winston’s preferred coping strategy is escapism. She escaped her Tennessee small town, loathsome father, and six brothers eight years ago. Now she escapes life daily via her Amazon kindle one-click addiction. However, when a family tragedy forces her to return home, Ashley can’t escape the notice of Drew Summers— local Game Warden, bear wrestler, philosopher, and everyone’s favorite guy. Drew’s irksome philosophizing in particular makes Ashley want to run for the skyscrapers, especially since he can’t seem to keep his exasperating opinions— or his soulful poetry, steadfast support, and delightful hands— to himself. Pretty soon the girl who wanted nothing more than the escape of the big city finds she’s lost her heart in small town Tennessee.

I really loved the first book in this series, and I've felt every book after that is almost as funny and they make me smile. This is why I'm exciting for the next one in the series, because I always need a good laugh!

10) Fallen Fourth Down by Tijan
Fallen Fourth Down is (I think) the last book in the Fallen Crest Series, if not the last then at least close to it. I really loved the first book in this series, and although I don't think the other books have been as good I still liked them. Now I really hope this book doesn't disappoint like the last one kind of did. But I also think that is part of the reason why I want to read it so bad is to see if it does turn out how I sort of think it will. I hope not, but I can't wait to find out!
