Title: Blood Type
Author: K.A. Linde
Publication date: April 24, 2018
Summary (via Goodreads): A startling new vision of paranormal romance: When a human ventures into the world of vampires—a decadent milieu of blood-bonds and betrayal—she discovers that not all is what it seems.

For Reyna Carpenter, giving up her body isn’t a choice. It’s survival.

In a civilization laid waste by poverty and desperation, Reyna accepts a high-paying position with the wealthy and hungry vampire elite. Her new job is as the live-in blood escort for the intimidating, demanding, and devilishly handsome Beckham Anderson. He’s everything she expected from a vampire, except for one thing—he won’t feed off her.

Reyna soon discovers that behind Beckham’s brooding, wicked façade lies a unique and complex man. And that, in a dark and divided world, she is more valuable than she ever would have believed.

For with each passing night, Reyna can’t shake the sensation that it’s Beckham who’s afraid of her.

Note: Reyna and Beckham’s story continues in Blood Match.

This ebook includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

Her friends just landed a spot on a battling bands reality show, and Vee is joining them for her dream internship on tour. Three months with future rockstars seems like an epic summer plan.

Title: The Beau & the Belle
Author: R.S. Grey
Publication date: February 1, 2018
Summary (via Goodreads): Beau Fortier starred in most of my cringe-worthy teenage fantasies.

I met him when I was a junior in high school, a time that revolved exclusively around bad hair, failed forays into flirting, and scientific inquiries into which brand of toilet paper worked best for stuffing bras.

That is, until Beau moved into the small guest house just beyond my bedroom window.

A 24-year-old law student at Tulane, Beau was as mysterious to me as second base (both in baseball and in the bedroom). He was older. Intimidating. Hot. Boys my age had chicken legs and chubby cheeks. Beau had calloused hands and a jaw cut from steel. Our interactions were scarce—mostly involving slight stalking on my end—and yet deep down, I desperately hoped he saw me as more of a potential lover than a lovesick loser.

Turns out, I was fooling myself. My fragile ego learned that lesson the hard way.

Now, ten years later, we’re both back in New Orleans, and guess who suddenly can’t take his eyes off little ol’ me.

My old friend, Mr. Fortier.

But things have changed. I’m older now—poised and confident. My ego wears a bulletproof vest. The butterflies that once filled my stomach have all perished.

When I was a teenager, Beau warned me to guard my heart.

Let’s hope he knows how to guard his.


Why I Chose This Book:

I adored the three books I’ve read by this author a lot, so I can’t wait to read another one! I helped with the cover reveal, and I signed up for an eARC. Fingers crossed that I’ll be approved. I absolutely love the cover, and the summary for this one. Le sigh.

SAY YOU’LL REMEMBER ME Synopsis:

“Doesn’t matter who did it. Not anymore. I did the time. It’s over.”

When Drix was convicted of a crime–one he didn’t commit–he thought his life was over. But opportunity came with the Second Chance Program, the governor’s newest pet project to get delinquents off the streets, rehabilitated and back into society. Drix knows this is his chance to get his life back on track, even if it means being paraded in front of reporters for a while.

Elle knows she lives a life of privilege. As the governor’s daughter, she can open doors with her name alone. But the expectations and pressure to be someone she isn’t may be too much to handle. She wants to follow her own path, whatever that means.

When Drix and Elle meet, their connection is immediate, but so are their problems. Drix is not the type of boy Elle’s parents have in mind for her, and Elle is not the kind of girl who can understand Drix’s messy life.

But sometimes love can breach all barriers.

Fighting against a society that can’t imagine them together, Drix and Elle must push themselves–Drix to confront the truth of the robbery, and Elle to assert her independence–and each other to finally get what they deserve.

Title: Taming Him
Author: Kennedy Fox
Publisher: Kennedy Fox Books, LLC
Publication date: January 30, 2018
Summary (via Goodreads): Introducing book 1 in the Bishop Brothers Series from a duo of romance authors who teamed up under the *USA Today* Bestselling pseudonym, Kennedy Fox!

Alex Bishop is your typical cowboy.
Charming, sexy, panty-melting smirk.
His days on the ranch built his solid eight-pack and smoking body. He’s every girl’s wet fantasy. Oh, and he knows it too.
He doesn’t play by the rules of a playboy bachelor. He wines and dines his dates before giving them the best night of their lives, but he always sends flowers and calls the next day–Even if it’s to say, let’s just be friends. His mama taught him manners after all and this southern blood knows what being a gentleman is all about. Still, that isn’t enough to tame the wildest of the Bishop brothers.

River Lancaster has finally met the man of her dreams. Too bad after six months of romance bliss, she finds out he’s married. With a broken heart and blind rage, she books herself a ticket to Key West, Florida. She’s tired of cheaters and liars and is set on escaping to forget he ever existed. Who needs a man when there’s an all you can drink margarita bar, anyway?
That’s what she thinks until she bumps into just the right guy who can make all those memories disappear.

Two weeks on the beach is just what they both need. No strings attached, no expectations, no broken hearts. Too bad the universe has other plans–One that’ll change the entire course of their lives in just nine short months.

*A contemporary romance with a little southern drama. Each book features a different Bishop brother and can be read as a complete standalone.*


Why I Chose This Book:

I just love this cover! Don’t you? I enjoyed the first Kennedy Fox duet I read (Travis and Viola), and I can’t wait to read more from this duo of authors. I might try to read the second duet (Drew and Courtney) before this book comes out. The cover reveal with a giveaway, and more details, can be found here from earlier this week.

Title: The Way You Make Me Feel
Author: Maurene Goo
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux (Byr)
Publication date: May 8, 2018
Summary (via Goodreads): From the author of I Believe in a Thing Called Love, a laugh-out-loud story with a Korean-American heroine about summer love, new friends, and a food truck.

Clara Shin lives for pranks and disruption. When she takes one joke too far, her dad sentences her to a summer working on his food truck, the Honeycut, alongside her uptight classmate Rose Carver. Not the carefree summer Clara imagined. But maybe Rose isn’t so bad. Maybe the boy named Hamlet (yes, Hamlet) on the truck next door is pretty cute. Maybe Clara’s estranged mom deserves a second chance. What if taking these relationships seriously means leaving her old self behind? From the author of I Believe in a Thing Called Love comes another funny story of friendship, romance, and discovering that even when life gets serious, it can still be seriously fun.


Why I Chose This Book:

I still haven’t read I Believe in a Thing Called Love, but I want to ASAP. And this is another one that’s on my to be read list. The summary sounds super cute. I love contemporary books, and I think this one will be a fantastic addition to the genre.

Title: Dark of the West
Author: Joanna Hathaway
Publisher: Tor Teen
Publication date: May 8, 2018
Summary (via Goodreads): He was raised in revolution. She was raised in a palace. Can their love stop a war? Code Name Verity meets The Winner’s Curse in Joanna Hathaway’s Dark of the West, a breathtaking YA fantasy debut.

Aurelia Isendare is a princess of a small kingdom in the North, raised in privilege but shielded from politics as her brother prepares to step up to the throne. Halfway around the world, Athan Dakar, the youngest son of a ruthless general, is a fighter pilot longing for a life away from the front lines. When Athan’s mother is shot and killed, his father is convinced it’s the work of his old rival, the Queen of Etania—Aurelia’s mother. Determined to avenge his wife’s murder, he devises a plot to overthrow the Queen, a plot which sends Athan undercover to Etania to gain intel from her children.

Athan’s mission becomes complicated when he finds himself falling for the girl he’s been tasked with spying upon. Aurelia feels the same attraction, all the while desperately seeking to stop the war threatening to break between the Southern territory and the old Northern kingdoms that control it—a war in which Athan’s father is determined to play a role. As diplomatic ties manage to just barely hold, the two teens struggle to remain loyal to their families and each other as they learn that war is not as black and white as they’ve been raised to believe.


Why I Chose This Book:

This one sounds amazing based on the summary, and I really like the cover. I haven’t heard much about this since it’s not coming out for about 5 more months, but I’m sure more will be heard about it soon.

Title: The Kiss Quotient
Author: Helen Hoang
Publisher: Berkley
Publication date: June 5, 2018
Summary (via Goodreads): A heartwarming and refreshing debut novel that proves one thing: there’s not enough data in the world to predict what will make your heart tick.

Stella Lane thinks math is the only thing that unites the universe. She comes up with algorithms to predict customer purchases–a job that has given her more money than she knows what to do with, and way less experience in the dating department than the average thirty-year-old.

It doesn’t help that Stella has Asperger’s and French kissing reminds her of a shark getting its teeth cleaned by pilot fish. Her conclusion: she needs lots of practice–with a professional. Which is why she hires escort Michael Phan. The Vietnamese and Swedish stunner can’t afford to turn down Stella’s offer, and agrees to help her check off all the boxes on her lesson plan–from foreplay to more-than-missionary position…

Before long, Stella not only learns to appreciate his kisses, but to crave all the other things he’s making her feel. Soon, their no-nonsense partnership starts making a strange kind of sense. And the pattern that emerges will convince Stella that love is the best kind of logic… 


Why I Chose This Book:

The cover is super adorable, and the summary sounds great. I’ve found myself gravitating towards new adult/adult romance books lately, so I’m definitely looking forward to this one coming out next year. Plus it’s diverse, so bonus points for that!

Title: Bad for You
Author: J. Daniels
Publisher: Forever
Publication date: January 23, 2018
Summary (via Goodreads): Shayla Perkins isn’t the kind of girl who makes the same mistake twice, especially when it comes to Sean “Stitch” Molina. So when he gives her the world’s biggest rejection, that’s it—she’s done. Until the sexy, silent, unavailable Sean makes Shay a very personal offer. Of course, it still doesn’t mean he’s interested in her. Or does it?

Sean has done things in life. Bad things. And he’s paid the price. All he wants now is to make up for his past by doing good in the present. And no one deserves more good than Shay. Beautiful on the inside and out, Shay is the kind of woman who should be cared for and protected—especially from a man like Sean. He’s tried to keep his feelings for her in check, but a single, reckless impulse pulls them closer than ever before.

Soon the two are sharing their biggest dreams and satisfying their deepest desires. But what will happen if the only way to truly give one another want they want most . . . is to let each other go?


Why I Chose This Book:

I just finished the first book in this series, and enjoyed it. I’ll probably be reading the second book early next year. Finally, I requested this eARC from Netgalley. Hopefully I get approved for it!

Title: You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone
Author: Rachel Lynn Solomon
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Publication date: January 2, 2018
Summary (via Goodreads): A moving, lyrical debut novel about twins who navigate first love, their Jewish identity, and opposite results from a genetic test that determines their fate—whether they inherited their mother’s Huntington’s disease.

Eighteen-year-old twins Adina and Tovah have little in common besides their ambitious nature. Viola prodigy Adina yearns to become a soloist—and to convince her music teacher he wants her the way she wants him. Overachiever Tovah awaits her acceptance to Johns Hopkins, the first step on her path toward med school and a career as a surgeon.

But one thing could wreck their carefully planned futures: a genetic test for Huntington’s, a rare degenerative disease that slowly steals control of the body and mind. It’s turned their Israeli mother into a near stranger and fractured the sisters’ own bond in ways they’ll never admit. While Tovah finds comfort in their Jewish religion, Adina rebels against its rules.

When the results come in, one twin tests negative for Huntington’s. The other tests positive.

These opposite outcomes push them farther apart as they wrestle with guilt, betrayal, and the unexpected thrill of first love. How can they repair their relationship, and is it even worth saving?

From debut author Rachel Lynn Solomon comes a luminous, heartbreaking tale of life, death, and the fragile bond between sisters. 


Why I Chose This Book:

Rachel’s a sweetheart, and I’ve been excited for this book since I first heard the announcement deal. The cover is gorgeous, and the summary makes me want a copy right now. I’m so excited to get my hands on this debut book.
