#MyTBRList is hosted by Michelle @ Because Reading. #MyTBRList is a monthly meme where on the first Saturday of the month, I choose 3 books that have been on my TBR for a while with a poll and you my lovely readers pick which one of the books I should read. The winner is announced the following Saturday and the review goes up on the last Saturday of the month.
For my January 2018 poll, I decided to do the theme of new to me authors.
January 2018 Nominees Are:
She’s bad at love, but he’s even worse…
Marina is hot, blonde, and wickedly smart, but when it comes to men? She’s hopeless. Between her quirks and her lack of filter, there isn’t a man in Los Angeles that will stick around after the third date.
Her handsome, charming friend Lazarus has the opposite problem. Everyone wants to be the sexy Brit’s girlfriend, but he gets bored and moves on quickly.
There’s only one way to figure out why neither of them has cracked this love thing– they’ll date each other. On paper, it’s the perfect experiment. But in reality, things between Marina and Laz get complicated quickly.
They might be bad at love, but they are even worse at being friends.
Note: This full-length romance is a complete standalone with no relation to any other books and was inspired by the Halsey song “Bad at Love.”
It does contain ample amounts of profanity, filthy language and graphic sex scenes.
Sensitive readers should be advised.
Drunken brawls. One-night stands.
No-show interviews. Toilet-papering my hoity-toity neighbor’s house.
Insulting my fans. Trashing hotel rooms.
What’s it take to become public enemy number one?
I just told you.
I’ve done all that and more.
My poor conduct got me on the Celebs Behaving Badly list
and ultimately ruined my career.
From the world’s number-one popstar to world’s most hated.
That’s me. Ten Stark.
Go underground, they said. Stay out of the spotlight.
Most importantly, stay out of trouble.
Everyone loves a good comeback story.
For once, I listened.
I met someone who didn’t know my name,
my face, or the bad behavior that defined me.
She taught me I wasn’t who everyone thought I was—everyone including me.
Then someone whispered my name and things got messy, as they always do.
Now I want her back.
I’m not a caterpillar, but a butterfly.
My wings are in full color, not just black and white.
But first, I have to shed my cocoon and fly.
After months of refusing, I finally agreed to make the move to Alrick Falls. My family thought it was best – that a new scene would be good for me – and I was sick of having the same conversation.
So here I am, and the plan is simple. Smile through each day and avoid her at all costs.
Until the cocky quarterback comes into play.
The last thing I want is his crooked grin and dark brown eyes focused on me.
Yet here he is, constantly in my space, pushing me, daring me to care. Telling me what I think and feel, as if he knows.
He doesn’t know anything. And I plan to keep it that way.
He’s the persistent playboy who refuses to walk away. I’m the impassive new girl with nothing left to give.
Things are about to get complicated.
Now that you’ve read the nominees, you can vote for the one you think I should read.
