Books to Binge On

Our Books to Binge On feature is pretty simple in its purpose. Every month, we put together a monthly new releases list of books that we’re all looking forward to. These are the books that we can’t wait to read and want everyone to add to their monthly binge-reading lists. Here are the books that we plan to binge on in October 2021.

Archangel’s Light (Guild Hunter #14) by Nalini Singh

Nalini Singh returns to the world of the Guild Hunters for the most highly anticipated novel of the beloved series—a love story so epic it’s been half a millennia in the making…

Illium and Aodhan. Aodhan and Illium. For centuries they’ve been inseparable: the best of friends, closer than brothers, companions of the heart. But that was before—before darkness befell Aodhan and shattered him, body, mind, and soul. Now, at long last, Aodhan is healing, but his new-found strength and independence may come at a devastating cost—his relationship with Illium.

As they serve side by side in China, a territory yet marked by the evil of its former archangel, the secret it holds nightmarish beyond imagining, things come to an explosive decision point. Illium and Aodhan must either walk away from the relationship that has defined them—or step forward into a future that promises a bond infinitely precious in the life of an immortal…but that demands a terrifying vulnerability from two badly bruised hearts.

Casee: Finally Sparkle & Bluebell. <3

Indigo Ridge (The Edens #1) by Devney Perry

Winslow Covington believes in life, liberty and the letter of the law. As Quincy, Montana’s new chief of police, she’s determined to prove herself to the community and show them she didn’t earn her position because her grandfather is the mayor.

According to her pops, all she has to do is earn favor with the Edens. But winning over the town’s founding family might have been easier if not for her one-night stand with their oldest son. In her defense, it was her first night in town and she didn’t realize that the rugged and charming man who wooed her into bed was Quincy royalty.

Sleeping with Griffin Eden was a huge mistake, one she’s trying to forget. He’s insufferable, arrogant and keeps reminding everyone that she’s an outsider. Winslow does her best to avoid Griffin, but when a woman is found dead on Eden property, the two of them have no choice but to cross paths.

As clues to the murderer lead to one of Quincy’s own, Griffin realizes Winslow is more than he gave her credit for. Beautiful and intelligent, she proves hard to resist. For him. And the killer.

Casee: Very excited about any release by this author.

Lauren Blakely

Two great friends. One road trip. And eight inches …
… of snow that night at the cabin.

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times. Friends don’t bang friends.
I want my friends to stay in my life, especially that flirty, clever, outgoing best friend of mine.
It’s a damn good thing Owen and I made a pact in college to never ever sleep together, or else I’d be tempted.
Trouble is, eight years later I’ve been wondering what his kisses taste like. And I’ve been curious if our chemistry would extend into the bedroom. If he might feel the same risky pull.
But I don’t want to lose Owen, and history says there’s no way a tryst between friends can end well.
So as long as I avoid the bedroom with him, I won’t break that hard-as-steel rule.
Except the snow has other plans…

The Bromance Zone is a deliciously flirty, red-hot sexy, friends-to-lovers MM romance about the charming guy next door who’s sworn to never date a friend, the flirty hot nerd who’s been secretly crushing on that friend forever, and one night snowed in in a cabin. This book comes fully equipped for your reading pleasure with sexy banter, a super awkward dinner party, and a scene in front of a fireplace that proves just how dangerous the friend zone is!

Casee: I’m pretty picky about m/m romance. I love Lauren Blakely so I’m expecting to love this book.

    This morning, I discovered that Ella James’s WRATH (which had been scheduled for October 14) was released early. It had been postponed several times since July, so when I saw it was available, I immediately downloaded it and started reading. It’s billed as a dark m/m stepbrother romance, but so far it strikes me more as a beautifully-written but incredibly sad book about how homophobia destroys the lives of young gay people.

    Clare Connelly releases two new books during the first week of October: Her latest HP, CROWNED FOR HIS DESERT TWINS, an unplanned-pregnancy/sheikh romance, arrived October 1. Then on October 6, Connelly’s CHRISTMAS EVER AFTER, a second-chance/small-town romance, drops.

    Ruth Cordello’s HE SAID NEVER, the second of her new Lost Corisis series, is scheduled for October 12. This one features a fake relationship.

    Also arriving October 12 is CD Reiss’s MAFIA QUEEN, the third and final book in her DiLustro Arrangement dark mafia trilogy about a young Italian-American woman forced into an arranged marriage with an Italian mafia don. What I’ve liked about this series is how seriously it treats arranged marriages and their inherent power imbalances. The previous book (MAFIA KING) ended on a doozy of a cliffhanger, so I’m eager to see how things are resolved.

    Sybil Bartel’s romantic-suspense, VICTOR, the second in her new Alpha Elite series, drops on October 25. In this one, the hero falls for the woman he has been hired to keep under surveillance.

    Giana Darling’s DANGEROUS TEMPTATION arrives on October 26. This is the first book in either a duet or a trilogy (I’ve seen a reference to at least a second book) and is set in the multi-author Midnight Dynasty universe where two rival crime families love and hate each other in equal measure. DANGEROUS TEMPTATION features the guardian-ward trope, which I know isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I’m assuming the heroine will turn 18 before “anything” happens.
