Angela- Once again I read ahead because I couldn’t help myself. What can I say? I have no willpower. There are still a bunch of new releases I’m looking forward to and a couple of books on my massive TBR stack I’m determined to work in.
Neon Gods by Katee Robert- 6/1 Contemporary Fantasy– I absolutely read this as soon as it hit my Kindle and don’t regret it at all. This book is HOT. Be prepared. It’s also such a wonderful new twist on the Hades and Persephone myth that I can’t wait to get to the rest of the series. Review to come this week.
Hellbound Guilds & Other Misdirections (The Guild Codex: Warped Book 2) by Annette Marie and Rob Jacobsen– 6/4 Urban Fantasy- I discovered there was FINALLY a release date for this book while searching Amazon for the new release post. I am so excited. I have been jonesing to get back to this world for some time. More Kit Morris!
The Queer Principles of Kit Webb by Cat Sebastian– 6/8 LGBT Historical Romance– How do you resist a Cat Sebastian book? This one features a retired highwayman and the son of an aristocrat who wants to hire him to do a job for reasons.
The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels by India Holton 6/15 Historical Romance– Lady Scoundrels! Proper ladies by day, blackmailing thieves by night! Yay! The entire blurb hit all my historical romance wants, but let me give you just a taste:
A prim and proper lady thief must save her aunt from a crazed pirate and his dangerously charming henchman in this fantastical historical romance.
Love Scenes by Bridget Morrissey – 6/22 Contemporary Romance– This looks to be a enemies to lovers romance with two actors working on a film with A LOT of shenanigans and hi-jinks. Sounds like fun to me.
Subtle Blood (Will Darling Adventures by K.J. Charles– 6/23 LGBT Historical Romance– I am so excited for this release. I loved the first two books and can’t wait for more Will Darling and Kim Secretan.
The Devil and the Heiress (The Gilded Age Heiresses Book 2) by Harper St. George -6/29 Historical Romance– Yes, I read this early too. I LOVED the first book in the series and couldn’t wait for Violet and Leigh’s story. I didn’t love it quite as much, but I still really enjoyed this romance. Harper St. George is a bright new voice in the genre and one of the authors I keep harping at people to try out.
Melanie – Several of my picks were already mentioned by Angela and some of them, I was lucky enough to score ARCs for and one of them, I’ve actually already read and it is GOOD.
One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston – 6/1 – Contemporary Romance – having adored her debut, the brilliant and charming Red, White & Royal Blue, I am excited to see if her 2nd book lives up to expectations.
Neon Gods by Katee Robert – 6/1 – Contemporary Fantasy – this was a can’t put it down, read it in one sitting kind of book; no one does modern twists on Greek mythology quite the way Katee Robert does and this ultra modern take on Hades and Persephone will have you on the edge of your seat. Not to mention, it’s incredibly hot.
Rhythm by Marie Lipscomb – 6/2 – Contemporary Romance – this is a brand new to me author and I’m excited to try her out. I love a good rock star romance and the blurb promises a forced proximity trope which is one of my absolute favorites.
Reel by Kennedy Ryan – 6/8 – Contemporary Romance – if you’ve ever read a Kennedy Ryan book, you know no one plays with your emotions better. Gripping, heart breaking, and romantic, with the most beautiful prose, her books always captivate. I can’t wait to delve into this new series.
The Devil and the Heiress by Harper St. George – 6/29 – Historical Romance – I loved the first book in this series and the end of the book laid hints for what was to come in this book. Having met both of the main characters in the previous book, I can’t wait to see how the journey to their HEA unfolds.
Jen– Put me on the list for Neon Gods by Katee Robert and Reel By Kennedy Ryan. Adding a few more and wishing I had a fun beach vacation coming up to really be in full reading mode. Sadly, that’s not in the cards this summer for me.
Freed by EL James– 6/1- Ok…ok…ok…I read 50 Shades so long ago and I’m still invested in this series. I’m curious. The original books were such a turning point for me and a catalyst to so many other series. I feel like I should duck and cover for admitting that, though.
A Gorgeous Villain by Saffron A. Kent– 6/3- I read the first one in this series and liked it quite a bit. This next one is Callie and Reed’s story. Callie is Salem’s friend from the first book, My Darling Arrow. I always feel some delicious discomfort when I read Kent’s books. Angsty, broken characters who are about to engage in taboo relationships.
Red Thorns by Rina Kent – 6/10- Rina Kent + dark sports romance = happiness. Sebastian Weaver is the star quarterback and the college’s heartthrob.Rich. Handsome. Bastard. Everyone’s attention flocked toward him and all the girls dreamed to be with him. Not me. At least, not until he made a move on me.
Sancte Diaboli by Amo Jones – 6/14- I read the prior 6 (?) books quickly. This complex, action packed, over the top ridiculously addictive series is my crack. This features Brantley and Saint. Nothing could break through their bond. Nothing. Until now.
Sawyer by Siobhan Davis – 6/30- This is the 6th book in the Rydeville Elite series. The series is bully romance, and this one is MMF. I may need to do a quick reread to catch up. I’ve been waiting for Sawyer’s story…but need to refresh myself on the details! The first book is Cruel Intentions.
What books are you looking forward to this month?
