Hurts to Love You RECOMMEND: Hurts to Love You by Alisha Rai is $1.99! This is the third book in the Forbidden Hearts series. It’ll probably behoove you to read the previous books, as this one does wrap up some things. Elyse wrote a Lightning Review for this one and gave it a B+. Being bad never felt so good, in the third novel in Alisha Rai’s sexy Forbidden Hearts series! Well-behaved women don’t lust after men who love to misbehave. Heiress Evangeline Chandler knows how to keep a secret . . . like her life-long crush on the tattooed hottie who just happens to be her big brother’s friend. She’s a Chandler, after all, and Chandlers don’t hook up with the help. Then again, they also don’t disobey their fathers and quit their respectable jobs, so good-girl rules may no longer apply. Gabriel Hunter hides the pain of his past behind a smile, but he can’t hide his sudden attraction to his friend’s sheltered little sister. Eve is far too sweet to accept anything less than forever and there’s no chance of a future between the son of a housekeeper and the town’s resident princess. When a wedding party forces Eve and Gabe into…

We have an absolutely amazing guest post from Poppy, who is recounting some of her favorite book moments! Poppy is a long-time fan of SBTB and loves cats, books and coffee, in that order. She illustrates The Loo Cats, an imaginative series starring her rescue cats in the most fantastical, improbable scenarios. The series is an ode to four spunky felines who survived abuse and abandonment before they found their forever home. Now they are elderly and ill, and can only travel in their human’s wild, colour-saturated imagination – but they continue to bring delight and iridescence to the lives of those around them. Join them on their adventures @geninepoppyloo on Instagram! … The past weeks have been brutal, so instead of reading whole books, I have been bingeing on my favourite book moments. This means borrowing dozens of books, revisiting specific chapters, pages – sometimes even sentences! – and then returning them. You have probably guessed where this is going – I’ve put together a Best Book Moments list! I originally picked out ten, but man, that was taking a long time to write. Eventually I settled on my favourite three, and in true meme style, titled the list…

We’re back with Cover Awe! Here are four covers that have captured our attentions recently. Amanda: I love the atmosphere and this woman’s hair! Sarah: Excellent use of light, too. The two brightest things are her face and the title. That said, my hair would NEVER look that good in a snowstorm. Amanda: I also like how the title has a different light effects. “The Undead” isn’t as bright and glowy. It’s a subtle touch, but I like it. Elyse: She looks like Amber Heard! I love that she’s a suspense heroine who isn’t doing a dumb pose with her boobs or butt jutting out. She’s allowed to stand like a person. Elyse: I’m so fascinated by this cover because at first it’s like “oh okay, lit fic. Faceless person.” Then you notice her fists and the quietly contained rage and go “ohhhhhh.” It’s so dynamic but also subtle. Amanda: I’m so excited about this book. CarrieS: Those hands, man. They tell a story all by themselves. Sarah: If this cover doesn’t win a design award I will eat my own socks Elyse: This pleases my inner Slytherin Sarah: LOL Amanda: Snakes are having A MOMENT on covers. CarrieS: YA…
