So another year has come to end…wow. It has been a crazy year for both C and myself. A lot has happened…a lot has changed but I think in the end we are both better for it.

We had a year with some great reads and some not so great reads. C and I started out the year in love with blogging and we ending the year….meh….we working on it 🙂 but all in all…the year was good.

We are both super excited to see what 2016 will bring.

Best of 2015 — Jules

Mason List by SD Hendrickson

I loved this friends to lovers story! It was one of the most beautiful books I have read to date. It was great seeing them grow through the entire life with glimpses into the future.


Neon Dream Series by Caisey Quinn

Sigh! It’s romance. It’s country. It’s Caisey. It’s J’s happy place.


Dear Juliet by Trudy Stiles

This entire series broke my heart but always put it back together in the end. Only stronger and happier.


Redemption Road by Katie Ashley

I have read a few of Katie Ashley’s books before this one — this was not what I was expecting from her. She got pretty dark in this book and also in Vicious Cycle but damn — she did dark so well. I love when an author surprises me and shows me new facets of herself as an author.


Asa by Jay Crownover

Marked Men…that is all!


Where The Road Takes Me by Jay McLean

Everyone needs RED LETTER days and I just love the romance and humor that Jay brings to her stories.


Scandal Never Sleeps by Shayla Black and Lexi Blake

Wha…tha…eff happened to MY MADDOX?! I need to know…sigh…the PERFECT GENTLEMEN are a hot, sexy, alpha and powerful bunch. I love them so. Plus the seamless and effortless writing of Shayla Black and Lexi Blake is reason enough to pick up this book.

Honorable Mention

Silver Bastard by Joanna Wylde


Hendrix by MJ Fields and Chelsea Camaron

Be the good in a world of bad.

I love the Caldwell brothers and broody, alpha Hendrix stole my heart.

Best of 2015 — Cezanne

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

This book was EVERYTHING (pun intended). Frankly, this is was one of the most fantastic YA novels that I have ever read. The writing was phenomenal and characters were diverse. It was so easy to fall in love with the characters and story. Did I mention the book has some amazing illustrations too??


Before We Were Strangers by Renee Carlino

My first Renee’ Carlino book and it won’t be my last. This was a second chance love story set in NY in the 1990s. Matt and Grace’s story truly captured my heart.  The writing, the imagery, and the music, all made me feel as if I was in the story and living each moment.


Asking For It by Lilah Pace

I was nervous about reading this book because the synopsis both scared and intrigued me. I wasn’t sure how this story would play out but this book was deeply erotic, taboo, and it was so damn well written. It pushed boundaries and I loved every minute of it.


King /Tyrant by T.M. Frazier

Brantley King, Doe, Preppy, and Bear are some of my favorite characters. King is raunchy, sexy, raw and full of twists. I stayed up all night to finish the book. It really kept me on edge and the conclusion to their story was insane. I love T.M. Frazier’s dark mind, even if she is an evil ginger that made me cry. 😉


My Soul To Keep by Kennedy Ryan

I could kick myself for not read Kennedy Ryan before this. I fell in love with story and writing. There was something about the novel and characters that made me love with them. I loved the banter and chemistry between them. My heart was so happy but that ending tho!


Claimed by Elle Kennedy

If someone told me an erotic, new adult, dystopian novel would be one of my favorite books of the year, I would have laughed. Elle Kennedy was another author I was told to try and I didn’t listen until now. This book was exactly what I needed when I was reading it. It was action packed, fun, and sexy. The characters were solid and I’m anxious for the rest of the series.


Kyland by Mia Sheridan

Honorable Mention

This Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp

Yes, this book doesn’t technically come out until next year but I had a chance to read an early copy. My goodness this book destroyed my heart! The story was a fast paced captivating, emotional, and diverse. Though it’s fictionalized version of a school violence, it felt all too real.
