How About Some Book Recommendations?

Let me start by saying, I have a few book recommendations for you.  I am going to share my favorite so far since my last post (about books anyways) , that I think you need to read.  Also, I'm not sure what happened to Maryse's Freebie Friday.  It has not been around for the last two weeks, only bargain priced.  People have asked and so far there is no explanation.

First up is Sins and Needles...I waited for this to be bargain priced...I got it for 99 cents.  I would have gladly paid full price for this book.

I loved this book.  So full of angst.  I was always telling the main character to stop asking why are you doing this?  I loved this book.  It is a cliffhanger ending, but I loved it.  Here is the synopsis from Amazon.  

Ellie Watt is used to starting over. The daughter of a grifting team, Ellie spent her childhood being used as a pawn in her parents' latest scam. Now she’s much older, wiser and ready to give her con artist life a rest. But returning to the dry desert town of Palm Valley, California means one more temptation than she bargained for – Camden McQueen. Once known as the high school weirdo, Camden is bigger and badder than the boy he used to be and a talented tattoo artist with his own thriving business. Ellie’s counting on Camden still being in love with her but what she’s not counting on is how easily unrequited love can turn into obsession over time. When Camden discovers Ellie’s plan to con him, he makes her a deal she doesn’t dare refuse, but her freedom comes with a price and it’s one that takes both Ellie and Camden down a dangerous road.

And next was the prequel Novella that came out...On Every Street.  I'm not a novella reader. I hate short little stories.  Give me a good, long book any day.  I just had to read it, though, after reading Sins and Needles.  It is the story of Ellie and Javier....before Ellie and Camden.  I actually, thought the length of this book was just right!

When young con artist Ellie Watt decides to call herself Eden White and go after the drug lord who ruined her as a child, she never expects to fall for one of his henchmen. But Javier Bernal is no ordinary man. Subtly dangerous and overwhelmingly seductive, Eden finds herself passionately in love with Javier, the very person she's set-up to betray. With her body and heart in a heated battle against her deep need for revenge, no one will walk away from this con a winner.

This 50K word (100+ pages) novella takes place six years before Sins & Needles (book #1 of The Artists Trilogy) and tells the story of Ellie and Javier’s passionate yet torrid affair. It can be read before or after Sins & Needles.
You do not need to have read Sins & Needles to enjoy this book and can be read as a standalone.

The third book in the Thoughtless Series.  You have got to read these books.  They are so GOOD!  I'm sure I've mentioned Thoughtless and Effortless before.  A nice ending to a good love story.

This is the first book in the Elemental Series.  There are four.  Oh, did I mention the Kindle Edition was free at this time?  The entire series is out now so you don't have to worry about cliffhanger endings.  I loved these books.  Romance, Vampires, and Mystery.  These books had a very Divinci Code to them.  I loved them.  Here is the synopsis for the first book from Amazon. 

No secret stays hidden forever.
   A phone call from an old friend sets mysterious book researcher Giovanni Vecchio back on the path of a mystery that has eluded him for centuries.  Little does he suspect a young librarian holds the key to an ancient secret, nor could he expect the danger Beatrice De Novo would attract.  
   Now both will follow a twisted maze leading from the archives of a university library, through the fires of Renaissance Florence, and toward a passion that could destroy them both.

So, there you go.  Hope you enjoy!
