All the books below are part of today’s Cyber Monday Deals at Amazon. You can check out all the books here! The Flatshare RECOMMEND: The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary is $2.99! We had a great guest review of this one and Lisa the Librarian gave it an A-: It was romantic, sweet, hot, funny, and original – everything I’m looking for in a romance. I can definitely see myself rereading this in the not-too-distant future.   Tiffy and Leon share an apartment. Tiffy and Leon have never met. After a bad breakup, Tiffy Moore needs a place to live. Fast. And cheap. But the apartments in her budget have her wondering if astonishingly colored mold on the walls counts as art. Desperation makes her open minded, so she answers an ad for a flatshare. Leon, a night shift worker, will take the apartment during the day, and Tiffy can have it nights and weekends. He’ll only ever be there when she’s at the office. In fact, they’ll never even have to meet. Tiffy and Leon start writing each other notes – first about what day is garbage day, and politely establishing what leftovers are up for grabs, and the evergreen question…

B- Tales from the Gunpowder Chronicles by Jeannie Lin November 12, 2019 · Jeannie Lin Historical: OtherNovellaRomanceScience Fiction/FantasySteampunk I’ve been in a reading rut lately. It’s the worst feeling in the world, and my solution has been to try novellas instead. They’re less intimidating than full-length books: it’s an hour of my time instead of four, I don’t feel like I’ve wasted time if I hate the book, I don’t experience guilt if I DNF, etc. The list goes on and on. When Jeannie Lin released an anthology set in her 19th century Chinese steampunk series, I was ecstatic. Lin is one of the brightest stars of historical romance, and I strongly believe that The Jade Temptress is a perfect book. Plus, it’s an anthology with three novellas! I could devour the stories in bite-sized chunks and conquer my reading rut. The good news is that I read the entire anthology and mostly enjoyed myself. The bad news is that I didn’t love it as much as I wanted to. I may be my biggest enemy when setting ridiculously high expectations. Still, Tales from the Gunpowder Chronicles continues crafting excellent steampunk worldbuilding from the first two installments of the series….

Artist credit: Gregg Gulbronson Designer credit: Amy Halperin Amanda: I might be the minority but I like this cover. I’m also biased when a hero has chest hair. Elyse: I do enjoy a hirsute man. Amanda: And I just like the whole “secret cuddle grove in the mountains.” Carrie: I love the lush plants and the bright colors – it really stands out against all those indoor Regency covers. And I also like the fact that he has some chest hair! Lara: It is my Vanessa Hudgens Netflix movie dreams on a book cover! (Truly, I love her Netflix Christmas movies) Artist credit: Courtney “Seage” Howlett Designer credit: Richard Aquan Elyse: Oh that purple color!
