April Releases

When i was trying to put this post together, it was hard to find good books out in April. Here are all of the books that i think will be a good read in April:

April 4th
31423196
Blurb:
Noemi Vidal is a teen soldier from the planet Genesis, once a colony of Earth that's now at war for its independence. The humans of Genesis have fought Earth's robotic "mech" armies for decades with no end in sight. 

After a surprise attack, Noemi finds herself stranded in space on an abandoned ship where she meets Abel, the most sophisticated mech prototype ever made. One who should be her enemy. But Abel's programming forces him to obey Noemi as his commander, which means he has to help her save Genesis--even though her plan to win the war will kill him. 

Together they embark on a daring voyage through the galaxy. Before long, Noemi begins to realize Abel may be more than a machine, and, for his part, Abel's devotion to Noemi is no longer just a matter of programming.
April 11th
30163661
Blurb:
It all started with the burning of the spindles.
No.
It all started with a curse...

Half sisters Isabelle and Aurora are polar opposites: Isabelle is the king's headstrong illegitimate daughter, whose sight was tithed by faeries; Aurora, beautiful and sheltered, was tithed her sense of touch and her voice on the same day. Despite their differences, the sisters have always been extremely close.

And then everything changes, with a single drop of Aurora's blood--and a sleep so deep it cannot be broken.

As the faerie queen and her army of Vultures prepare to march, Isabelle must race to find a prince who can awaken her sister with the kiss of true love and seal their two kingdoms in an alliance against the queen.

Isabelle crosses land and sea; unearthly, thorny vines rise up the palace walls; and whispers of revolt travel in the ashes on the wind. The kingdom falls to ruin under layers of snow. Meanwhile, Aurora wakes up in a strange and enchanted world, where a mysterious hunter may be the secret to her escape . . . or the reason for her to stay.

Spindle Fire is the first book in a lush fantasy duology set in the dwindling, deliciously corrupt world of the fae and featuring two truly unforgettable heroines.

Blurb:
From Katie Cotugno, bestselling author of 99 Days, comes Fireworks—about a girl who is competing with her best friend to become the new pop star of the moment—and all the drama and romance that comes with it—set in Orlando during the late-'90s boy-and-girl-band craze.

It was always meant to be Olivia. She was the talented one, the one who had been training to be a star her whole life. Her best friend, Dana, was the level-headed one, always on the sidelines, cheering her best friend along. 

But everything changes when Dana tags along with Olivia to Orlando for the weekend, where superproducer Guy Monroe is holding auditions for a new singing group, and Dana is discovered too. Dana, who’s never sung more than Olivia’s backup. Dana, who wasn’t even looking for fame. Next thing she knows, she and Olivia are training to be pop stars, and Dana is falling for Alex, the earnest, endlessly talented boy who’s destined to be the next big thing. 

It should be a dream come true, but as the days of grueling practice and constant competition take their toll, things between Olivia and Dana start to shift . . . and there’s only room at the top for one girl. For Olivia, it’s her chance at her dream. For Dana, it’s a chance to escape a future that seems to be closing in on her. And for these lifelong best friends, it’s the adventure of a lifetime—if they can make it through. 

Set in evocative 1990s Orlando, New York Times bestselling author Katie Cotugno’s Fireworks brings to life the complexity of friendship, the excitement of first love, and the feeling of being on the verge of greatness.

Blurb:
BELLA 

New life. New job. New home. New goals...

But I did. 
Now I just hope I don't regret it. 

ETHAN 

Bella is the type of girl you can't help but chase, because she doesn't want to be caught. I came back ready to live and enjoy life. Not to get tethered to a girl. But... shit happens. Bella happens. And everything I thought I wanted slowly changes.

Branna (slater brothers4.5) by L.A. Casey

26158237
Blurb:
Branna Murphy is a survivor, a wife, a friend, a sister, and a soon-to-be-mother. She doesn’t have time to linger on anything, especially on a silly argument about how many children she will bear.

Ryder Slater is a hardass, a husband, a friend, a brother, and a soon-to-be-father. Unlike his wife, he has nothing but time to argue his case about how many children they will have… until that time is threatened to be taken away from him.

A surprise honeymoon deep in a beautiful forest for a secluded getaway was supposed to be fun, romantic and peaceful – until the storm of the century hits and both Branna and Ryder face a new enemy that has means to harm their family. 

Mother nature.

Branna is consumed by her love for Ryder, and will fight to the end to keep her family safe. Branna treasures Ryder, and what Branna treasures, Branna defends.

My thoughts:
if you have ever read my blog, you will know that i love this author.  this book was not one of her best. i think what made e feel this way was because of the delay the author took with the book. i understand life happens and you have to change the date of when you need to put out the book. what makes me made is when an author goes radio silent after telling everyone it was supposed to be out on this date but it really was not. ok enough of my ranting back to the book. this will make you feel the love between the two of them. it is romantic and funny. this book was a great setup for her next book. there will be a shocking twist at the end like always but you will really enjoy this book.

Broken Trouble (Broken Storms 1) by Kristan Billups

30200118
Blurb:
Seventeen year old Nova has one last chance to turn her life around. When the judge gave her an ultimatum of getting herself and her life together or going to prison, she is sent to a ranch in the middle of nowhere swarming with hot cowboys.
The same ranch that she had burnt a barn down on that had sent her back to Juvenile detention.
The same cowboys that had almost lost their ranch because of her.
How do you change when everyone hates you and doesn't trust you?
How do you change when you don't want to?
Which life will she choose? The fun but dark life she's been living her entire life or something even better?

My Thoughts:
this book was really good. it has everything i look for in a book. there was drama, romance, and there was comedy. so much is happening at once in this book and you will not be able to put it down. the ending will make you cry. this book ends with a cliffhanger. i can not wait to read the next one.

Twisted Palace (Royals 3) by Erin Watt

32669490

Blurb:
These Royals will ruin you…  

From mortal enemies to unexpected allies, two teenagers try to protect everything that matters most. 

Ella Harper has met every challenge that life has thrown her way. She’s tough, resilient, and willing to do whatever it takes to defend the people she loves, but the challenge of a long-lost father and a boyfriend whose life is on the line might be too much for even Ella to overcome. 

Reed Royal has a quick temper and even faster fists. But his tendency to meet every obstacle with violence has finally caught up with him. If he wants to save himself and the girl he loves, he’ll need to rise above his tortured past and tarnished reputation. 

No one believes Ella can survive the Royals. Everyone is sure Reed will destroy them all. 

They may be right. 

With everything and everyone conspiring to keep them apart, Ella and Reed must find a way to beat the law, save their families, and unravel all the secrets in their Twisted Palace.  
My Thoughts:
this book is amazing. there are twist and turn around every corner. so much is happening in this book. there will be twist that you will never see coming. you will not be able to put it down. this is the last book in the series and as sad as i am, it was one of the best endings out there.

# Swag (gearshark 3) by Cambria Herbert

30367827

Blurb:
These drivers got #swag… 

Racing is in her DNA. 
Right alongside money and power. 
When you’re the daughter of one of the most powerful men in the country, 
you have to work harder for success. 
Joey Gamble’s a girl on a male-dominated track. 
With a daddy who can buy whatever she wants. 
But she doesn’t want anything… except to EARN her reputation. 

Racing is his passion. 
Trouble follows him everywhere. Some even say he invites it. 
When you’re nipping at the taillights of the best driver in the new NRR, 
you have to fight and claw for each and every success. 
It’s never been easy for Lorhaven. 
That’s why he doesn’t play by the rules. 
He’s a man with a serious chip on his shoulder against the pro racing circuit. 
We at GearShark want to know what’s up with that. 

We’ve also been hearing rumblings… 
of a pro who wants to go indie. 

We’ve invited racing royalty and the driver from the wrong side of the tracks to sit down and talk to us about a possible crossover. 
We expected sparks to fly when Joey and Lorhaven crossed paths. 
Will those sparks ignite into a full-on inferno? 
Read the full feature article inside…

If you have read this blog before you would know that i love this series. it is funny, romantic, and  sends a powerful message. i love this couple. this book will bring tears to your eyes.it is a fast read and you will not put it down.

Identical Disaster (sterling shore 8) by C.M. Owens

28637556

Blurb:
JAX 

My life was simple... until Bo Brendon crashed into my lap. Shy girls aren't my thing, yet somehow, she's under my skin and in my head. It's a f*cking nightmare. Yet it's a nightmare I don't want to give up. 

BOLIVIA (BO) 

Jax Marshall was an accident. A really sexy, smart, incredibly smooth, hot... accident. He's the kind of guy you shouldn't fall in love with, because he could crush you with barely any effort. Especially someone like me. Either it will be the best thing to ever happen to me, or it will be the disaster that leaves me in ruins. 

I guess I'll find out.

My Thoughts:
what can i say another hit for C.M Owens. it was sexy, funny, and  heartwarming. i love seeing characters grow.  i can't wait to read the next one.

The thrilling first book in a YA fantasy trilogy for fans of Red Queen. In a world where social prestige derives from a trifecta of blood, money, and magic, one girl has the ability to break the spell that holds the social order in place.

Sixteen-year-old Anna Arden is barred from society by a defect of blood. Though her family is part of the Luminate, powerful users of magic, she is Barren, unable to perform the simplest spells. Anna would do anything to belong. But her fate takes another course when, after inadvertently breaking her sister’s debutante spell—an important chance for a highborn young woman to show her prowess with magic—Anna finds herself exiled to her family’s once powerful but now crumbling native Hungary.

Her life might well be over.

In Hungary, Anna discovers that nothing is quite as it seems. Not the people around her, from her aloof cousin Noémi to the fierce and handsome Romani Gábor. Not the society she’s known all her life, for discontent with the Luminate is sweeping the land. And not her lack of magic. Isolated from the only world she cares about, Anna still can’t seem to stop herself from breaking spells.

As rebellion spreads across the region, Anna’s unique ability becomes the catalyst everyone is seeking. In the company of nobles, revolutionaries, and Romanies, Anna must choose: deny her unique power and cling to the life she’s always wanted, or embrace her ability and change that world forever.

Reaching the tournament is just the beginning. Once they arrive, danger takes on new shapes: poisonous courtesans and mischievous story birds, a feast of fears and twisted fairy revels.

Every which way they turn new trials will test their wit and strength. But what Gauri and Vikram will soon discover is that there’s nothing more dangerous than what they most desire.
