The Fixed Trilogy by Laurelin Paige
Fixed

Start With: Fixed on You

Stalking and restraining orders are a thing of Alayna Wither’s past. With her MBA newly in hand, she has her future figured out–move up at the nightclub she works at and stay away from any guy who might trigger her obsessive love disorder. A perfect plan.

But what Alayna didn’t figure on is Hudson Pierce, the new owner of the nightclub. He’s the kind of guy Alayna knows to stay away, except Hudson’s fixed his sights on her.

Why you’ll love it: Alayna’s very aware she shouldn’t get mixed up with the man who just bought the club she bartends at— so of course we love it when she does.

This Man Trilogy by Jodi Ellen Malpas
This Man

Start With: This Man

Young interior designer Ava O’Shea has no idea what awaits her at the Manor. A run-of-the-mill consultation with a stodgy country gent seems likely, but what Ava finds instead is Jesse Ward — a devastatingly handsome, utterly confident, pleasure-seeking playboy who knows no boundaries. Ava doesn’t want to be attracted to this man, and yet she can’t control the overwhelming desire that he stirs in her. She knows that her heart will never survive him and her instinct is telling her to run, but Jesse is not willing to let her go. He wants her and is determined to have her.

Why you’ll love it: A British billionaire, a beautiful mansion, and hot games of cat-and-mouse will keep you glued to the page.

 

4 Things That Drive Ebook Readers Crazy

These days, people love their ereaders — and it’s no wonder! Being able to read books on a screen is the biggest change in how humans read since the invention of the printing press! When else in human history could you find millions of books literally at the touch of your fingertips, and without even having to leave your house? Ereaders are the BEST.

But even the best things in life come with downsides. Here are a few of the things that drive ebook lovers like us CRAZY.

1) When people ask “Don’t you miss the feel of a printed book?”

Why is everyone always going on about the touch, the feel of paper? Paper is nice, and sometimes books are really pretty! But I’d take convenience of ebooks over paper any day: every book in the world, available right now! Ebooks are instant gratification!

2) When you’re waiting for the next book by your new fave author

You know how this goes. You hear about a book, you download it immediately (because you can with an ereader!), you read it (and everything else by that author) in a day. Can you say “obsessed”?

And then you get to the end, and all you can do is wait for this author’s next book. (We’re looking at you, George R.R. Martin.)

3) When you don’t know what to read next

This is the problem with infinite choice: there are so many books out there, how do you decide what to read???

4) When you spend all your money on books

We’ve all been there: there are just so many good books, and you want all of them all, and next thing you know you have no money because it all went into your personal library.
