Book News

Lauren Layne revealed the cover for her upcoming release in the Oxford series and I’m over the moon. It’s Hunter and Brit’s book! squee

I Think I Love You by Lauren Layne
Series: Oxford #5
Also in this Series: Irresistibly Yours, I Wish You Were Mine, Someone Like You, I Knew You Were Trouble
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Random House, Loveswept

A game of seduction between two best friends goes deliciously wrong in an irresistible Oxford Novel that brims with wit and sexual tension. Library Journal hails Layne’s work as “exemplary contemporary romance.”

Brit Robbins knows that dating in New York City is hard—she just hoped to have it mastered by age thirty. But after yet another promising suitor says they have no sparks, Brit decides it’s time to torch her dating game and try a new plan. And who better to coach Brit through the art of seduction than the guy who first gave her the “let’s be friends” card?

Hunter Cross has always figured there’s nothing his best friend Brit can do to surprise him. But Brit’s request is a surprise he doesn’t see coming—and one he’s definitely not prepared for. Hunter and Brit have always been careful to keep things perfectly platonic, but the fake dates and faux flirting are starting to feel like the real deal. And soon Hunter realizes he has taught Brit too well. Not only has she become an expert at seduction, the man becoming thoroughly seduced is him.

I love a best friend’s to true love story so I’m all about this one.

Nalini Singh also revealed the internation cover for Ocean Light, the next book in the Psy-Changelings Trinity book and I’m soooo excited for that one.

Ocean Light by Nalini Singh
Series: Psy-Changelings Trinity #2
Also in This Series: Silver Silence, Silver Silence, Silver Silence
Genres: Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Penguin, Berkley

New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh dives beneath the surface of her Psy-Changeling world into a story of passionate devotion and selfless love…

Security specialist Bowen Knight has come back from the dead. But there’s a ticking time bomb in his head: a chip implanted to block telepathic interference that could fail at any moment—taking his brain along with it. With no time to waste, he should be back on land helping the Human Alliance. Instead, he’s at the bottom of the ocean, consumed with an enigmatic changeling…

Kaia Luna may have traded in science for being a chef, but she won’t hide the facts of Bo’s condition from him or herself. She’s suffered too much loss in her life to fall prey to the dangerous charm of a human who is a dead man walking. And she carries a devastating secret Bo could never imagine…

But when Kaia is taken by those who mean her deadly harm, all bets are off. Bo will do anything to get her back—even if it means striking a devil’s bargain and giving up his mind to the enemy…

This is another book that I’m pretty anxious for. Bo!!! I can’t wait.
