June Releases

This month might be a little longer because this is a popular month for release.

June 4th
Cozen by [Bethany-Kris]
Blurb:
coz-en (kuz-uhn) 
verb
1. trick or deceive.
• obtain by deception.

She was named most appropriately.

Cozen Taylor has more than earned her place as one of North America’s most successful thieves. Her name is whispered amongst criminal elite as the go-to thief when someone needs a heist.

She has never failed.

A call from the Miami-based Astor family could change all that with a job that seems almost impossible to complete. The mark should be simple—a stolen family heirloom, the man who has kept it hidden for over twenty years, and six months to return the piece to its rightful owners.

Nothing is ever that easy.

Three-hundred million for a successful heist. No smart thief would turn the offer down. Cozen didn’t expect a complication like him to put a kink in her plans, though. Sargon Makri—tall, dark, gorgeous, and entirely dangerous. For her life, her heart, and for the success of the heist.

The last thing Cozen needs to be thinking about is Sargon, and how she can get him into her bed … especially when he just happens to be her mark’s bodyguard. The thrill of the job has never been more addicting to Cozen, and she will risk everything to make the heist a success.

But at what cost?

***

From author Bethany-Kris comes a whole new world. A North American network full of criminals battling to stay on top, and painting the streets red in war as they dabble in the game of betrayal. Malicious, cunning, forbidden, and violent—welcome to The Empires and Badlands.

As Helene searches for a way to hold back the approaching darkness, her sister's life and the lives of all those in the Empire hang in the balance.

Far to the east, Laia of Serra knows the fate of the world lies not in the machinations of the Martial court, but in stopping the Nightbringer.

The Problem with Him: An Opposites Attract Novel by [Higginson, Rachel]
Blurb:
I’m over men. I’m done with them. 

Or at least the ones that work in my kitchen. Fine, one man in particular. Wyatt Shaw is cocky and condescending and so far out of his element that he doesn’t know which way is up. Or how to run his brand new kitchen all by himself. 

That’s where I come in. Sous chef extraordinaire. Second in command. Bane of his existence. I am the reason Wyatt’s doing so well as the new executive chef of one of our city’s most prestigious restaurants. He has me to thank for his glowing accolades and five-star write-ups. Only if you were to ask him, he’d say I’m his biggest problem. 

Despite his discouragement and bullish behavior, I’ve set two goals for myself. 

The first? I’m going to fight my way to the top of this male-dominated industry and claim my own award-winning kitchen. 

The second? I’m going to do whatever it takes to ignore Wyatt and his rare smiles and the thickening tension that’s started to simmer between us. 

Wyatt Shaw might be Durham’s new shining star. He might be up for a James Beard Award. He might be my new boss and key to my future success, but he’s also in my way. 

So he can keep his smoldering looks and secret kisses. And he can be the one that figures out how to make it through service without getting distracted by me. 

I’m not the problem. The problem is him.

Nova (Renegades 2) by Rebecca Yarros

Nova (The Renegades #2)
Blurb:
He's got one shot to make it right...

He's Landon Rhodes.
The Renegade they call Nova.
Sinfully gorgeous, broody, tatted-up, professional snowboarder.

They say a girl broke him once--
That's why he's so reckless, so driven, so careless with his conquests.
But I'm that girl.
They can call me his curse all they want.
He and I both know the truth--
He's the one who destroyed me,
And I'm too smart to let that happen again.

My thoughts:
My new favorite series. I don't know where to start with this review. it was action packed and romantic all at the same time. The main characters both dated each other in the past and had a bad break up. both of the characters have regrets but they are too angry at each other. facts will be reviled that we did not see coming and we will learn that things are not how they seem at all. if you like reading about crazy stunts, romance, and sassy banter this book is for you. I can not wait to read more from this series.

Co-Ed By Rachel Van Dyken

Co-Ed
Blurb:
Four guys. 

Constant moaning. 

And a revolving door across the college suite I somehow ended up in because my first name is Shawn. 

They don't discriminate. Girls. Guys. Grandmas. Plants (okay maybe not plants) all walks of life stroll in stressed to the brim, and leave so satisfied I'm wondering what sort of talents lie behind that door. 

My roommate calls them the pleasure ponies. 

But the rest of the college campus? 

They just call them the new face of Wingmen Inc. A paid for relationship service that makes big promises. 

Breakup? They'll glue you back together again. 

Depressed? They have the magic pill. 

Lonely? Just spend a few minutes while they rub you down and you'll forget all about it. 

And broken hearts? Well, that's their specialty. They'll fix you.

For a price…

I swore I wouldn't get involved. 

But apparently they like a challenge, and a girl who doesn't put up with their BS is basically like waving a red flag in front of a bull. 

They. All. Charged. 

But one holds my attention above the rest. 

Knox Tate looks like a Viking — and getting pillaged is starting to look more appealing by the day. Though he's hiding something — all of them are. And the closer I get. The more I realize that some things are left better in the past.

You've read reverse harem books before — but you've never read one like this. It's not what you think, or is it? Dive in and find out…

Knox, Leo, Finn, and Slater are waiting, and they aren't patient men. 

Welcome to the new face of Wingmen Inc — You're welcome.

My thoughts:
So this book was not what I was expecting. I read Wingman Inc. series first and I love it.  So when I found out that there was going to be more book I was super excited. this book did not do the other series justice at all. it had the same basic premise of the other books did but with different people. to me, the ending was a little rushed and could have been a little better. also, I thought that there would have seen more of the old characters more as well but they only came in at the end. I was a little disappointed. this book did have some good moments though. It was funny, sexy, and talked about interracial couples. I think that is not talked about enough in books and I liked how this topic was discussed in this book. Not sure if I will read the next book if there is one but not a horrible book.

Wilder ( Renegades1) by Rebecca Yarros

Wilder (The Renegades #1)
Blurb:
I'm Paxton Wilder.
Motocross phenom & adrenaline junkie.
I have more tattoos than scars.
And I've never seen a stunt I couldn't pull off--
Or a girl I can't get off.
Until she walks in.
My new tutor is sexy, smart, more stubborn than I am, and one hundred percent off limits.
That's right--the only rule this semester is Don't Touch the Tutor.
For the first time in my life, I want someone I can't have.
She's the girl who obeys every rule.
I'm the guy who breaks them.
Our biggest risk is falling for each other,
but I live for risk...

Each book in the Renegades series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order. 
Series Order:
Book #1 Wilder
Book #2 Nova
My thoughts:
I love the premise of this story. I have never read a romance book like this one before. the characters them self-were funny and there will never be a dull moment. I love the sassiness of the main characters. both characters help each other get past there demons. while the romance is going on someone is trying to kill them. this makes the story ten times more interesting. the ending will shock you. overall,  the concept, story plot, and all of the male sexiness will make for a great read.

Disgrace (a legacy novel ) by Bethany-Kris

Disgrace (John + Siena Book 2)
Blurb:
Siena Calabrese is no longer the prized daughter of la famiglia. Her transgressions against her brothers and family have stained more than just her reputation. Her best chance at keeping breath in her lungs would be to sit down and shut up like she was taught to do. She definitely shouldn't be feeding information to her family's enemies. And yet, she is still willing to risk it all for a chance at forever with Johnathan Marcello. After everything, how could she not? 

The disgraced one … 

Johnathan Marcello’s life and secrets have now been put on display for everyone to see. There's no hiding the things he's tried to keep hidden, but maybe that's the best thing that could have happened. Now he's about to walk straight into a war between rival mafia families, and he's got choices to make. His love is on one side, he's on the other, and everybody is playing for keeps. He'll play the game just as dirty as anyone else to get what he wants, even to the detriment of himself. For her, how could he not? 

The shamed one … 

It's time that the forgotten king takes back his throne. It's already been too long since it was taken from him. 

But when has anything in this life been easy?

My thoughts:
This book had a wonderful ending but also tragic. I personally can relate when it comes to John being diagnosed with a mental disorder can have a huge impact on your personal life. John is an aspiring character for me because even though he has his struggles he always knows a way to make through in the end. I think that Serina is amazing for just wanting to be with John even though he is different. Their story gives hope to those people out there with mental disorders. I am sad to see this couple go but I can't wait to read more about the children in this storyline.

Valiant (spy girl 4) by Jillian Dodd

The Valiant (Spy Girl Book 4)
Blurb:
From USA Today bestselling author Jillian Dodd comes the fourth book in a sizzling series filled with action and adventure. Fans of The Selection and The Hunger Games will discover a heart-pounding thrill ride of espionage and suspense set in glittering high society. 


What will happen when the world goes ka-boom? 

The assassin known as The Priest was tasked with a series of three hits, and the last one blows up in his face—literally. 
People will die. 
People will go on. 
Unlikely alliances will be formed. 
And when British intelligence learns that a series of nuclear backpack bombs were smuggled into their country, there’s a lot more to worry about than discovering why a covert agent was assassinated over six years ago or what’s going to start in Montrovia. 
My thoughts:
I sware Jillian can do no wrong. every book that she comes out with is a hit. there has not been one book that she has done that was bad. this is a continuation of a series so I recommend reading them first. this book is action-packed and romantic at the same time. one of the thing that love about Jillian's books, they always pick up exactly where they left off from the previous book. she packs a lot of info into one book so be ready. there will be secrets revealed but you will end up with more questions as well. Not so sure if I like Huntly right now when it comes to her choice in men. the ending is a cliffhanger so be warned. overall I can not wait for the next book.
