While away from blogging I used by down time to read. Here's the first of my mini-updates, this one focusing on New Adult.

This audio exclusive short tells of events from Sweet Filthy Boy from a new perspective.
Three words to describe this for you, "Hot French accent!" After listening to this novella, I so want a book from Ansel's POV. I understand why we didn't get his POV to begin with, the big secret would have been revealed. However, after hearing his thoughts on Mia, I would love to learn more from his POV.

Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this.
Evelyn Thomas's plans for celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man in her room, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.
One thing is certain, being married to one of the hottest rock stars on the planet is sure to be a wild ride.
This book was recommended to me and then someone asked to place it on hold. Honestly, I thought, *rolls eyes* another rock and roll story. Our library system didn't have it in stock so I went out and bought it with the idea of donating it to my library for their collection.
I was so wrong for the eye roll. This book was amazing. I loved Evelyn and David each as individuals and as a couple throughout the whole book. Sure they made their mistakes and had mess-ups but it was a fun, sexy read.
In our NA book group, we talk about the best friend in the books. This book had two awesome best friends. Lauren for Evelyn and Mal for David. They added such debt and fun to the book. I couldn't wait to read about Mal so I went and picked up Play to read and donate to the library.
We now have Lick, Play, and Lead just arrived yesterday. It was very tough not to walk off with that book before it was cataloged.

My name is Lizzie Connelly, and I have it all. The gorgeous apartment. The new job most women would rip out their own souls for—working for Margaret Emerson at Emerson & Taylor. I have one of those lives you’ve always dreamt about, the kind you only see on HBO. But, the thing is, that life is a lie. A façade.
It all started with one call. “Everything you know about your story—your father’s story—is a lie. It’s up to you to uncover everything.” One call, and I turned my world upside down to dig my way into Margaret’s life—the woman who I’d never laid eyes on until recently. My stepmother who took everything after my father died fourteen years ago.
The plan was simple—figure out what role she played in my father’s death and expose her to the world.
But here’s another thing: simplicity doesn’t exist, and my plans are flawed from the beginning because I never anticipated Oliver. Sexy, too smart for his own goddamn good, and infuriating, he’s the one person who could blow my plans to uncover Margaret. She’s his mother, and in another life, that would have made him my stepbrother.
I want to pretend that none of that matters, that I can simply finish what I came to do without sparing him a second glance and another thought.
Like I said, though, there’s no such thing as simplicity.
My real name is Gemma Emerson.
And this is my story.
I honestly believe I could read a grocery written by Snow and LOVE it. This story had multiple layers with one hot book boyfriend, Oliver. Imagine having the world and then losing everything. That includes family, home, and money to support. Lizzie didn't question it until she got a phone call that changed everything. Here's another book that has a great best friend and an amazing plot that keeps the twists coming to the end. Don't skip ahead on this one, you won't want to ruin the full plot twists.

This awesome novella is being released every few days and is based in the Devoured universe with Ceanna and Lucas. I love that we get to read more about them and see the drama llama come to town.
This one is free and can be read here.
