Touch Me Sweet Evil Her Perfect Getaway More than Meets the Ink
I've really started getting into adult contemporary reads so I just can't stop purchasing them at the moment. There's fun, quick and hot reads and I love them! Lol. Her Perfect Getaway was one I finished this morning and really liked it =) If anyone has any recommendations, I'd love to hear them.
A huge thank you to Mira, Random House, Kindle Fever!! 


Jess's Showcase!!!


For Review: 
New Girl by Paige Harbison
Looking forward to this! I know the story of 'Rebecca' very well and I enjoyed the mystery behind it. So I look forward to reading this. Thank you MIRA Ink for allowing me to review this.


Bought: 
Black Dawn (The Morganville Vampires #12) by Rachel Caine
Fifty Shades Darker (Fifty Shades #2) by E. L. James
Fifty Shades Freed (Fifty Shades #3) by E. L. James

I've already read the Fifty Shades Trilogy and loved it. I just really wanted the finished copies! And I got them! Looking forward to Black Dawn. I have yet to finish Ghost Town and start Last Breath, but it's nice to know I won't need to wait so long to pick this one up.


eBooks bought off of Amazon: 
(Click the book cover to be taken to Goodreads)
False Start Luscious Love Wicked Weekend (Pleasure Code, #1) Tempting the Best Man Scrap Metal The Rebuilding Year
I've suddenly come to reading a lot of Erotica as you know. (Thank you Fifty!). But some of the newest additions I've started to read are Male/Male erotica. I'm sorry if this touches your ICK factor as I know it isn't always to peoples tastes. But I enjoyed them. They're actually really well written. I recently read The 51st Thursday and Scrap Metal and they were fabulous!  They are short stories, and I intend to read more very soon. 
If you are interested in reading m/m romances, you can read my very SHORT reviews for The 51st Thursday and Scrap Metal on my Goodreads account:
The 51st Thursday by Mercy Celeste
Scrap Metal by Harper Fox

That's it from me this week! I hope there are books in there that intrigue you and get added to your ever growing TBR lists.

Awesome book hauls, ladies! Donna, I'm so jealous of you! I need to get the rest of the Iron Fey books myself--the series is just amazing! And I'm super curious about Hunting Lila and Sweet Evil myself.

And you're very welcome for the gift card! Congratulations again and I'm sure you'll spend it on something awesome (if you hadn't already ;)

Enjoy your new books, ladies!! :)
