December 2014 Releases

Like last month there aren't a lot of books on the list this month. Which is a good thing, since I'm still catching up on books from, well, the last two years. And I have a pile of eARCs on my iPad. Well, a figurative pile at least. Hope you have a wonderful holiday season, and try to sneak in lots of reading.

In The Spirit by J.C Hart 
12/1/14 

Why -> An old house is not the only thing left to Alyssa when her grandmother dies. She's also inherited a ghost intent on escaping it's bonds. And the role of town witch is now expected of her. Yes! I'm in, old haunted house, ghost, witchcraft. I'm ready!

Wicked (The Wicked Saga #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
12/8/14

Why -> It's a JLA book, I really shouldn't have to explain this one at all, but I will. Set in New Orleans' French Quarter, Ivy hunts creatures responsible for her losing everything years earlier. When sexy Ren shows up, things get complicated. And they're both keeping secrets. Ones that could tear them apart.

Suspicion by Alexandra Monir
12/9/14

Why -> A String of deaths in Imogen's family puts her in the center of the secrets surrounding the family estate. And she's not the only one. So is her childhood crush and family friend, Sebastian. And haunting her are her father's last words, "There's something hidden in the Maze." The very maze she was never allowed in as a child. I'm currently reading this as an ARC and can't wait to see how it all comes together.

Rebound (Boomerang #2) by Noelle August
12/9/14

Why -> Oh my goodness. I love Veronica Rossi's work. It's set in the same world as Boomerang. Only in this installment we get to follow around Adam Blackwood, head of Boomerang, and Alison Quick, Ethan's ex-girlfriend & the daughter of a business tycoon. When a scandal from Adam's past threatens to destroy everything he's built, Alison is there ready to take him down to prove her place in her father's world. And I've been on such a new adult binge lately. I can't wait to read this. I just got and eARC the other day, so I will be devouring this one as soon as I finish Suspicion. I can't wait.  

Your turn! What are you excited for this month?

Waiting on Wednesday #38

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event splotlighting upcoming releases that we readers are eagerly anticipating and is hosted by Breaking the Spine.

Suspicion
by Alexandra Monir
Publication Date: December 9, 2014

From Goodreads:

Mysterious. Magnificent. Creepy. Welcome to Rockford Manor.

"There's something hidden in the Maze." Seventeen-year-old Imogen has never forgotten the last words her father said to her seven years ago, before the blazing fire that consumed him, her mother, and the gardens of her family's English country manor.

Haunted by her parents' deaths, Imogen moves to New York City with her new guardians. But when a letter arrives with the news of her cousin's untimely death, revealing that Imogen is now the only heir left to run the estate, she returns to England and warily accepts her role as duchess.

All is not as it seems at Rockford, and Imogen quickly learns that dark secrets lurk behind the mansion's aristocratic exterior, hinting that the spate of deaths in her family were no accident. And at the center of the mystery is Imogen herself--and Sebastian, the childhood friend she has secretly loved for years. Just what has Imogen walked into?

Combining a fresh twist on the classic REBECCA with a spine-tingling mystery and powerful romance, SUSPICION is an action-packed thrill ride.

Cover Reveal: REBOUND by Noelle August

 

  Image Map
At Boomerang, one night can change everything…


Adam Blackwood has it all. At twenty-two, he’s fabulously wealthy, Ryan Gosling-hot and at the top of his game in the business world. His life is perfect, until a scandal from his past resurfaces and threatens to knock the tech wunderkind down and throw his company, Boomerang, a hook-up site for millennials, into chaos.

Alison Quick, the twenty-one-year-old daughter of a business tycoon—and the very ex-girlfriend of Boomerang’s former intern, Ethan—has a problem of her own. After nearly flunking out in her senior year of college, she has one chance to redeem herself to her father by proving that she deserves a place in his corporate empire. That means spearheading her father’s plan to sink big money into Adam’s company and launch it into the stratosphere—provided Adam has no skeletons in his closet.

When the two meet, their sizzling chemistry makes it tough to keep things strictly professional. But when Alison discovers Adam’s secret, she knows she should bring it right to her father, who’ll leverage it for his own gain and use it to ruin Adam. The only problem: she’s falling for Adam—hard.

Will earning her father’s approval come at the price of losing her first real love? Or can Adam and Alison leave behind past mistakes and conquer the world—together?

The Return (Titan #1)
by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Publication Date: February 17, 2015

From Goodreads:

It’s been a year since Seth made the deal with the gods that pledged his life to them. And so far, the jobs they’ve given him have been violent and bloody – which is kind of all right with him. But now Apollo has something else in mind for Seth. He’s got to play protector while keeping his hands and fingers off, and for someone who really has a problem with restraint, this new assignment might be the most challenging yet.

Josie has no idea what this crazy hot guy’s deal might be, but it’s a good bet that his arrival means the new life she started after leaving home is about to be thrown into an Olympian-sized blender turned up to “puree”. Either Josie is going insane or a nightmare straight out of an ancient myth is gunning for her.

But it might be the unlikely attraction simmering between her and the golden-eyed, secret-keeping Seth that may prove to be the most dangerous thing of all.

Book 1 in the new adult paranormal TITAN series, spin-off to the best selling COVENANT series. Seth's Story.
