Our Top Reads for 2016

 

odbr_top2016reads

Okay, so I’m a tad bit late for the bandwagon on this post, but it’s here and that’s what counts, right? 😀

I read a lot of books in 2016, some I loved, some I liked, and some I enjoyed but didn’t quite connect with as well as I would have liked. Today, I’m going to list my top reads for 2016, along with the links to my reviews for each book. Not all of these were published in 2016, but most were, and the ones that weren’t were books I read in 2016 or are part of a series that published a new book in 2016.

Book Summary

In this steamy novel from the USA Today bestselling author of Blurred Lines, country music’s favorite good girl hides away from the world—and finds herself bunking with a guy who makes her want to be a little bad.

Jenny Dawson moved to Nashville to write music, not get famous. But when her latest record goes double platinum, Jenny’s suddenly one of the town’s biggest stars—and the center of a tabloid scandal connecting her with a pop star she’s barely even met. With paparazzi tracking her every move, Jenny flees to a remote mansion in Louisiana to write her next album. The only hiccup is the unexpected presence of a brooding young caretaker named Noah, whose foul mouth and snap judgments lead to constant bickering—and serious heat.

Noah really should tell Jenny that he’s Preston Noah Maxwell Walcott, the owner of the estate where the feisty country singer has made her spoiled self at home. But the charade gives Noah a much-needed break from his own troubles, and before long, their verbal sparring is indistinguishable from foreplay. But as sizzling nights give way to quiet pillow talk, Noah begins to realize that Jenny’s almost as complicated as he is. To fit into each other’s lives, they’ll need the courage to face their problems together—before the outside world catches up to them.

Book Talk Saturday: Book Haul Part Two

booktalksaturday_header

Happy Saturday, readers! I’m back as promised to continue my book haul post from Sunday. This time I’ve got some recent ARC copies to talk about and some series I’ve loved and bought in print (already read the ARC or owned the e-book, or both).

I received some of these ARCs a few weeks back, but due to other commitments (prior books accepted, photo shoots and subsequent editing scheduled, etc), I haven’t been able to dive into them yet. My April was busy with senior photo shoots and editing and my May is busy with lots of photo editing going on as I just photographed a wedding last weekend, so I’m fitting in book reading in between all of that. Thankfully, things will slow back down for me toward the end of the month.

For now, here’s a few books I’ve received for review or purchased to read myself.


Print ARCs and Books Received

The Darkest Lie by Pintip Dunn

I received an early copy of this YA book from Kensington for review and am so excited to read it now. My full review will be posted on the blog closer to it’s June 28th release date, but from the pages I’ve read thus far, my initial impression is that the book is fast-paced, well-written, intriguing, and engrossing. I loved Pintip Dunn’s debut book from Entangled Teen, Forget Tomorrow (currently up for a 2016 RWA Rita Award), so I’m over the moon to finish my read of The Darkest Lie.

Nookietown by V.C Chickering

I received a copy of this book from St. Martin’s Press for review. It’s very different from what I normally read, and not something I would’ve sought out on my own, but I’m looking forward to diving in and giving it a shot. From the few pages I peeked at, I thought it was intriguing, funny, and sure to be a lesson in be careful what you wish for. Look for my review of this one on the blog soon.

Primal Instinct by Tara Wyatt

Hot Cowboy Nights by Carolyn Brown

I received these books for review from Grand Central Publishing Forever and will be posting reviews of both books on their May 31st release date. Needless to say, I’m excited to read these and I can’t wait to share my thoughts on them.

I’ve talked a few times about these books and I bought them all in digital after reading the ARCs for review, but I also recently purchased them in print, too, because they are too good not to own physical copies of each one of them. One of my favorite series I’ve read in the past year for sure.

Blurred Lines_Cover.png

Book Summary

In a novel that’s perfect for fans of Abbi Glines and Jessica Sorensen, USA Today bestselling author Lauren Layne delivers a sexy take on the timeless question: Can a guy and a girl really be “just friends”?

When Parker Blanton meets Ben Olsen during her freshman year of college, the connection is immediate—and platonic. Six years later, they’re still best friends, sharing an apartment in Portland’s trendy Northwest District as they happily settle into adult life. But when Parker’s boyfriend dumps her out of the blue, she starts to wonder about Ben’s no-strings-attached approach to dating. The trouble is, even with Ben as her wingman, Parker can’t seem to get the hang of casual sex—until she tries it with him.

The arrangement works perfectly . . . at first. The sex is mind-blowing, and their friendship remains as solid as ever, without any of the usual messy romantic entanglements. But when Parker’s ex decides he wants her back, Ben is shocked by a fierce stab of possessiveness. And when Ben starts seeing a girl from work, Parker finds herself plagued by unfamiliar jealousy. With their friendship on the rocks for the first time, Parker and Ben face an alarming truth: Maybe they can’t go back. And maybe, deep down, they never want to.

A year ago, Jackson Burke was married to the love of his life and playing quarterback for the Texas Redhawks.

In Hot Pursuit

Being a cop might be in Anthony Moretti’s blood, but protecting and serving the city of New York has always been more than just the family business. If that means his love life stays locked up, well then that’s just another sacrifice made in the line of duty. That is, until he sets eyes on the gorgeous new waitress at The Darby Diner and suddenly Anthony’s morning coffee is leaving him a whole lot more hot and bothered than usual.

Though waitressing at The Darby isn’t exactly Maggie Walker’s dream job, it pays the bills and gives her time to work on her novel. Now if only she could stop fantasizing about gorgeous Anthony Moretti every time he sits down at her table, she’d really be in great shape. But when he needs her help identifying a criminal threatening The Darby—and Maggie recognizes her ex-husband—she fears her fresh start might be a pipe dream. Faster than a New York minute, Maggie and Anthony find themselves in one perilous pursuit that only gets hotter with each and every rule-breaking kiss.

Hotshot sports editor Cole Sharpe has been freelancing for Oxford for years, so when he hears about a staff position opening up, he figures he’s got the inside track. Then his boss drops a bombshell: Cole has competition. Female competition, in the form of a fresh-faced tomboy who can hang with the dudes—and write circles around them, too. Cole usually likes his women flirty and curvy, but he takes a special interest in his skinny, sassy rival, if only to keep an eye on her. And soon, he can’t take his eyes off her.

Penelope Pope knows all too well that she comes off as just one of the guys. Since she’s learned that wanting more usually leads to disappointment, Penelope’s resigned to sitting on the sidelines when it comes to love. So why does Cole make her want to get back in the game? The man is as arrogant as he is handsome. He probably sees her as nothing more than a barrier to his dream job. But when an unexpected kiss turns into a night of irresistible passion, Penelope has to figure out whether they’re just fooling around—or starting something real.
