Xenophobia S.B. Roozenboom
(Jen’s Choice – Review)
The Union by T.H. Hernandez
(Jen’s Choice – Review)

1. Xenophobia by S.B. Roozenboom
This story was unique, so much fun and I can’t wait to see where this series goes!  Plus I adored Tevire, the things Tevire did to protect Ness was gut wrenching, sweaty palm inducing and entirely swoon worthy.

2. The Union (The Union #1) by T.H. Hernandez
This series is an epic journey that had me devouring the pages as fast as possible!  It contains a sigh inducing book boyfriend, friendships that are deep and meaningful, a heroine I adore and even a character I love to hate.  I love this series!

3. Infinity (The Infinity Division #1) by Jus Accardo
Infinity haunted my dreams and interrupted my thoughts throughout the day.  I couldn’t stop thinking about this book.  I loved getting swept away by the action, adventure and the unknown.

4. Stay With Me (Come Back to Me #2) by Mila Gray
The characters easily worked their way into my emotions.  I couldn’t help but feel everything they did.  And the sexual tension and angst left me longing to read the pages as fast as possible while also slowing down so I could savor every sexy moment.

Rebel Wing by Tracy Banghart
(Jen’s Choice – Review)
 deep in the heart sharon sala
(Chelsea’s Choice)

5. Rebel Wing (Rebel Wing #1) by Tracy Banghart
Rebel Wing was spellbinding, intricately crafted, and I found myself being pulled in by the moments of hope, betrayal, torture, alliances, and friendships.

6. Deep in the Heart by Sharon Sala
An oldie but goodie…Sharon Sala’s tale of lost romance and found again will want your heart. It was my first ‘adult’ contemporary.

Suffer Love ashley herring blake
(Chelsea’s Choice – Review)

7. Thief of Lies (Library Jumpers #1) by Brenda Drake
The pages were filled with friendship, laughter, tears, betrayal, love and trust.  And I happily found myself addicted, since the characters continually pulled at my emotions. 

8. Suffer Love by Ashley Herring Blake
Sweet, heartbreaking, and about finding yourself and believing in others…I’m shocked this isn’t more popular!

9. Broken Skies (Broken Skies #1) by Theresa Kay
Broken Skies gripped me to the core and was truly outstanding.  The story continually built and became more intricate, causing me to become obsessed with this book.  The pages were scattered with hardships and butterfly inducing moments that were breathtaking.  I never wanted this book to end.

10. Playing the Player by Lisa Brown Roberts
Playing the Player was beyond adorable.  I couldn’t stop smiling or keep the laughter contained that kept bubbling out of me.

  2. “Broken Skies” is one I saw on Booktube a while back, but haven’t looked into it since then. Perhaps it’s one I should revisit! 🙂

    • YES! I definitely recommend that you revisit! It’s addicting, page turning and I can’t wait to read the final book that should be coming out this year.

  3. Great List! I’m so happy to see Broken Skies in this list! I freaking loved it! I’m eagerly waiting for the finale to be published. Playing The player is quite an entertaining read and I enjoyed reading it. 😀
    Raven recently posted…Rhapsodic (The Bargainer #1) By Laura Thalassa [Review]My Profile

    • YES! Broken Skies was AMAZING! I can’t wait to see how it all ends with Jax and Lir too!
      And Playing the Player was so cute! I’m hoping to discover the rest of her books this year. 🙂

  4. *Sigh* More Books for my list!

  5. I want to read Thief of Lies, so glad you enjoyed it!

    • I just finished the sequel to the Thief of Lies and loved every single thing about it! The series just keeps getting better and better. So addicting! I hope you have fun reading it too when you pick it up.

  6. I ended up ordering Rebel Wing for my library because of your review, Jen. Thanks for highlighting it! 🙂

    • You just put the hugest smile on my face! That is so amazing Christy, thank you! I hope the readers at your library have a ton of fun discovering Rebel Wing!

  7. Unfortunately I wish I would have liked Thief of Lies more than I did… Several others I want to read on this list. 🙂

    Lauren @ Always Me

    • The ironic thing is, the first time I read it last year I couldn’t connect to characters or the story at all. Well except for Bastien. Once he appeared on the pages, which was near the end of the book, then it all clicked into place. So I did a re-read this year, because I was interested in the sequel, and I connected and liked the story. So random that it happened that way, but I’m so happy at the same time lol!

  8. I haven’t read a single one of these. Which I guess is probably true for lots of people since they’re underrated. 🙂 I definitely want to check out Infinity, Suffer Love and Thief of Lies.

  9. Shame, shame. I haven’t read any of these! Suffer Love and Thief of Lies both sound fantastic though. 😀
