I’m almost finished reading Lethal by Sandra Brown & the Ice Lake anthology by B.J. Daniels, Delores Fossen, & Julie Miller. (Both very good romantic suspense. :smokin )
And I don’t know about you, but deciding what to read next is one of the hardest decisions I have to make on a regular basis. There are way too many great books waiting on my To Be Read piles. I’m also never quite sure what I’m in the mood for, because they all look way too good. :crykitty
So this time, I’m going to let you help me decide what to read next. (With the caveat that I may end up jumping ship, no matter what’s discussed here, because I have a tendency to follow my gut at the very last second. :birdcat )
This is what I’ve been eyeballing with interest:
#1 — Jaci Burton’s The Perfect Play. I’ve already read Changing the Game, which actually comes after this one, so I’m a little out of order. Sometimes that bothers me, but Game seemed to stand alone perfectly well, even though I could tell other characters had already gotten their own story. This would give me the chance to go back & catch up. :rundogrun
#2 — Lori Foster’s Just a Hint – Clint. I’m behind & out of order with Lori’s books, but have been wanting to read this one for a while, so it’s a possible. Or I could grab When Bruce Met Cyn… or Never Too Much, which also seem to be calling to me.
#3 — Erica Spindler’s Shocking Pink. I’ve really been in the mood for an Erica Spindler lately. One of her newer titles, actually, but this is the one that’s smack-dab in front of me whispering, “Read me. Read me. I’ve been sitting here forever—read me already, dammit!” :runkitty
#4 — Kay Hooper’s The First Prophet. I just read a Kay Hooper not too long ago, so I feel like I should give something else a shot first, but I do love her books & romantic suspense in general. It’s also one of those extra-tall paperbacks that never fit in my boxes of books, so I feel like I should read it & get it out of the way rather than trying to store it much longer.
What do you think?
Which of these would you pick up first—and why?
Or have you already read one or more of these & can recommend them personally?
**NO SPOILERS, PLEASE!!!*** But feel free to give me your thoughts & opinions. They might just help me decide what to read next. :doggielick

P.S. After posting this, I also ran across a pile of Jessica Andersen Intrigues I’d love to get to…& a couple of JAK books that look good (Running Hot & All Night Long)…&
Dangit! This is what I’m talking about! :crykitty

I think The First Prophet looks interesting :lovemykitty

I really like Kay Hooper’s books. And apparently Prophet is the first in a new branch-off series. So is that exciting or daunting?
I also just read Kay’s Haven not too long ago & am wondering if I need to give another author a shot before going back to her.
:snickerdog These are the questions that run thru my head & make picking a next read so very difficult. :kittyquestion

LOVE Lori’s books! Any of those you mentioned..I think I will re read Never too Much..Love that whole series! :goteam

I read & loved Too Much Temptation, so I know Never Too Much will be good, too. And it has been sitting there an awfully long time… :yarnkitty

Kay Hooper the First Prophet gets my vote. I admit they all look good though. :snickerdog

Don’t they? Therein lies the problem. :kittyquestion

I’m partial to Jaci Burton. If you like sports romance, I say read that 🙂 If you liked Changing the Game, you’ll like this one!

I did like Changing the Game, but her books tend to verge on erotica for me & I’m not sure I’m in the mood for that much sex. (Yes, I actually said that :oopsiedaisy )

Tangled by Emma Chase. First person told from the hero’s perspective and he’s a playboy. It’s hilarious and then on her website there are “follow-up” chapters. It’s one of those books that don’t want to eat or drink anything while reading.
I know that’s not one of them you listed above, but hey, I’m feeling like a rule breaker tonight! :heartkitty

Being a rebel is just fine – & thanks for the rec – but I don’t have this one & it’s gotta be one I have within grabbing distance. :birdcat

You have time to read? ::cracking the whip::

bwhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!! (You are talking to Heidi right, because if you are breaking out the whip…Mistress Heidi will just laugh at you!)

Yeah, Mistress Heidi is doing a bit of toe-tapping over that one. :smokin

Why do you think it takes me 2wks to a month to read a single book when I used to go thru a book a week? *SOB* :crykitty
On August 6, 2013 at 12:34 pm
LOL to Patti!
Heidi, I’d vote for Lori or Jaci, or the Jessica Andersen Intrigues, just because that’s what I would personally pick 😉
On August 5, 2013 at 11:31 pm
Aack! You’re not helping…those are three of the books/authors I’m debating, too. And I love them all, so tossing out all three at the same times doesn’t help me narrow it down! :greybonedog
