I hope everyone that’s reading has had a happy, safe and relaxing holiday season. I took a little stepback and break away from blogging in the leadup to Christmas and New Year as there was just so much going on and not enough time to get it all done in.
However, now that the craziness of Christmas and New Year celebrations is finally winding down, I’m getting back into reading, writing and blogging.
This year is going to be kick-ass. At least, I hope it’ll be kick-ass. It’s definitely going to be a busy half-year, that’s for sure. In April I’ll be attending the Sydney Author Event (I can’t wait to see Nalini Singh again! I adore her!) I’ll also be attending the RT Booklovers Convention in Reno, Nevada in May (that’s if I can get a few more things organized, fingers crossed!) and in July I’ll be going to see Pink in concert (I’ve never seen Pink before and am super excited by it.)
But let’s talk books, shall we?
Presently, I’m reading a copy of XO, ZACH by Kendall Ryan which I’m really loving, the heroine of the story Poppy is both sassy and very dirty minded and the way that she talks and thinks has made me lol a number of times already. If you haven’t heard about the book yet, here’s the cover and pre-order links below:
The first time we met was at a party.
Your ex arrived to show off the person he’d left you for last month, and you asked me to pretend to be your date.
I was more than happy to help. You were attractive, smart and witty–and that kiss we shared? It left me wanting you for days.
The second time we met was in my office on campus where we were both surprised to discover you were the new master’s degree student in poetry that I would be working with. You promised to be professional. I did no such thing.
The late nights and intense study sessions spent alongside you majorly throw me off my game. I want you, and I fight with myself daily over this fact.
I know I’m crass, that my sexual innuendos and dirty mouth annoy you, but I live for those two bright spots of color in your cheeks. If that’s the only reaction I can get out of you, I’ll gladly take it.
You hate Mondays so every Monday I slip an anonymous poem into your bag and your smile gets me through the week.
I think I’m falling for you, and I know it’s wrong. I know that I’m only supposed to be the adviser to your program and nothing more, but here’s the thing. I think you’re falling for me too.

Audible: Live release, narrated by Andi Arndt & Sebastian York!
I’m really enjoying this book so far and while I’m reading it, I’m also counting down the days until a few books that I’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting on are released. Can you tell that I’m super excited? The books I’m most looking forward (well, the one’s that are being released this month at least!) to reading are:
Releasing 23 January, 2018
An outlaw motorcycle club sets up shop next door to Sea Haven in the dangerously sexy new series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan.
As the enforcer of the Torpedo Ink motorcycle club, Reaper lives for riding and fighting. He’s a stone-cold killer who turns his wrath on those who deserve it. Feelings are a weakness he can’t afford–until a gorgeous bartender gets under his skin…
Near Sea Haven, the small town of Caspar has given Anya Rafferty a new lease on life. And she’s desperate to hold on to her job at the biker bar, even if the scariest member of the club seems to have it out for her. But Reaper’s imposing presence and smoldering looks just ratchet up the heat.
Anya’s touch is everything Reaper doesn’t want–and it brands him to the bone. But when her secrets catch up to her, Reaper will have to choose between Anya and his club–his heart and his soul.
I’m so very excited about the upcoming release of this book. I’m so intrigued by all the men and women of Torpedo Ink and can’t wait to see where Christine Feehan takes these new characters. I absolutely adored Bound Together even though it made me cry a bucket of tears. If you’re feeling a little clueless right now and thinking, Judgement Road is the first book in the new Torpedo Ink series, isn’t it? It’s true, it is. However, the Torpedo Ink series is a spin-off of the Sisters of the Heart series which is a spin-off of the Drake Sisters series. And all the books are fabulous! I’ve read and loved them all. For those who haven’t read them and want to give them a try, here’s the reading order: Drake Sisters – Magic in the Wind, The Twilight Before Christmas, Oceans of Fire, Dangerous Tides, Safe Harbor, Turbulent Sea, Hidden Currents. Sisters of the Heart – Water Bound, Spirit Bound, Air Bound, Earth Bound, Fire Bound and Bound Together.
Releasing January 26, 2018:
I haven’t been able to find a blurb for Angel, but this is the fifth book in the Made Men series by Sarah Brianne. The books are new adult, dark romance and about a mafia family. I read the first book Nero and was instantly addicted. For those who don’t know, Sarah Brianne is the daughter of Jamie Begley, another author whose books I’m addicted to. If you’d like to get a taste of Sarah’s writing below is the link to the preview of Angel:

Can a woman actually make you feel like you’re losing your damn mind?
If she is Corina Miller.
The only woman who has ever made me long for something more, and let me tell you, that has me all kinds of messed up. After months of ignoring my feelings, it’s clear to me I’ve fallen for those piercing blue eyes and sexy smile.
But is it too late?
Have I pushed her into the arms of someone else?
Hell no am I letting that happen.
I’m on a mission to win the heart of the only woman I’ve ever cared about—and the only thing standing in my way is one stubborn and pissed off Corina.
I always did like a challenge.

Releasing January 31, 2018
Revenge is a seven-letter word that isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s a word for those who have been wronged.
Jo Turner has been waiting five, long years to finally turn revenge into vengeance. Using Rider, the pretty-faced manwhore, is simply the price she is willing to pay to satiate her desire for revenge. Little does she know, she makes herself a target from the one thing Rider has sworn to give his life to protect—The Last Riders.
When you wake the soldier, be prepared for the consequences.
Rider is going to teach her a hard lesson: revenge is a double-edged sword … and it always cuts both ways.
There are no pre-order links for Angel by Sarah Brianne and Rider’s Revenge by Jamie Begley because both authors don’t do pre-orders. Sometimes, they like to surprise fans and release early.
So those are the books that I’m most looking forward to reading this month. What books are you looking forward to? Whilst I’m waiting for those books to be released so that I can binge-read them, I’m re-watching Charmed. It’s research! I’m writing Charmed (well, Charmed Legacy, really) Fan-Fiction to get myself back into the writing game before moving onto different writing works.
