Bookaholic's Not-So-Anonmymous #4 (feat. Teresa Mummert, Rainbow Rowell, Katie Cotugno + More!!)

I'm not going to even introduce this, because we all know I have a slight (huge) problem when it comes to books. So without further ado, let's discuss my book buying addiction!! YAY!! :) ;) 

NOT PICTURED LANDLINE BY RAINBOW ROWELL (IT IS CURRENTLY BEING LENT TO A COWORKER)
** CLICK ON THE BOOK TITLES TO PURCHASE ON AMAZON!**

- White Trash Beautiful (White Trash #1) by Teresa Mummert. I bought this book purely because I was curious. I had seen the series in my BAM! and had wanted to try it out for awhile. I haven't started it yet, but I plan to once I get a few other books out of the way! 





A word-of-mouth bestseller that’s captivating readers with its honesty, grit, and headstrong heroine, White Trash Beautiful is a story for anyone who has ever felt trapped in life, cheated by love—and longed for something more . . . 

Cass Daniels isn’t waiting for her knight in shining armor. She knows that girls like her don’t get a happily ever after. Not if you live in a trailer with your mom, work at a greasy spoon diner, and get leered at by old men. Maybe that’s why she puts up with Jackson—her poor excuse for a boyfriend, who treats her like dirt. Cass has learned to accept her lot in life. That is, until he walks into her diner. . . . 

His name is Tucker White, and he’s different from any man Cass has ever known. Tall, tattooed, and bad-ass gorgeous, he’s the lead singer of the rock band Damaged. From the moment they meet, Tucker sees something in Cass he just can’t shake. Something beautiful. Something haunted. Something special. And he’s determined to find out what it is—if only he can get her to open up and let him in. . . .



- Beautiful Secret (Beautiful Bastard Series #4) by Christina Lauren. I couldn't not buy this book. I love the Beautiful Bastard Series and needed Niall Stella in my life. I've devoured this book already and completely loved it!! If you are of age and haven't read any of the BB books then you need ASAP! 


AN UPTIGHT BRITISH EXECUTIVE. AN ADVENTUROUS AMERICAN NEWBIE. A SEXY INTERNATIONAL SCANDAL IN THE MAKING.

New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling author Christina Lauren’s Beautiful and Wild Seasons series hook up in Beautiful Secretfor an erotic intercontinental romp that celebrates the best of both worlds!

When Ruby Miller’s boss announces he’s sending her on an extended business trip to New York City, she’s shocked. As one of the best and brightest young engineers in London, she knows she’s professionally up to the task. The part that’s throwing her is where she’ll be spending a month up close and personal working alongside—and staying in a hotel with—Niall Stella, her firm’s top urban planning executive and The Hottest Man Alive. Despite her ongoing crush, Ruby is certain Niall barely knows she’s alive…until their flirty overnight flight makes him sit up and take notice.

Not one for letting loose and breaking rules, recently divorced Niall would describe himself as hopeless when it comes to women. But even he knows outgoing California-girl Ruby is a breath of fresh air. Once she makes it her mission to help the sexy Brit loosen his tie, there’s no turning back. Thousands of miles from London, it’s easy for the lovers to play pretend. But when the trip is over, will the relationship they’ve built up fall down?


Burying Water (The Burying Water Series #1) by KA Tucker. Again, I bought this book purely out of curiosity. I've seen it everywhere and really wanted to know what the big deal was with this book. I have this feeling that this book is one that you shouldn't know much going in to it, so I've tried to now read the synopsis in it's entirety. I've posted it down below, but I think if you're interested in it, then you should go in blind! :) I plan on reading this as soon as I finish some ARC/Review books! 


The top-selling, beloved indie author of Ten Tiny Breaths returns with a new romance about a young woman who loses her memory—and the man who knows that the only way to protect her is to stay away.

Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survives—but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her. Refusing to answer to “Jane Doe” for another day, the woman renames herself “Water” for the tiny, hidden marking on her body—the only clue to her past. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge: Who is the next-door neighbor, quietly toiling under the hood of his Barracuda? Why won’t Ginny let him step foot on her property? And why does Water feel she recognizes him?

Twenty-four-year-old Jesse Welles doesn’t know how long it will be before Water gets her memory back. For her sake, Jesse hopes the answer is never. He knows that she’ll stay so much safer—and happier—that way. And that’s why, as hard as it is, he needs to keep his distance. Because getting too close could flood her with realities better left buried. The trouble is, water always seems to find its way to the surface.


- Overruled (Legal Briefs #1) by Emma Chase. I LOVE Emma's Tangled Series and was super sad to see it end, but once I heard about her new Legal Briefs Series, I knew that I had to check it out! So I did and I completely fell in love with her new characters, Stanton Shaw is pretty amazing and the next books in the series follow side characters that are introduced in book one. I never thought I could love book boyfriend as much as I love Drew Evans, but it's possible people! I can't wait to read more and fall even more in love with Emma's hilarious and witty writing! 

 

Emma Chase, New York Times bestselling author of the Tangled Series, returns with the first installment of the Legal Briefs Series. 

As a DC defense attorney, Stanton Shaw keeps his head cool, his questions sharp, and his arguments irrefutable. They don’t call him the Jury Charmer for nothing – with his southern drawl, disarming smile and captivating green eyes – he’s a hard man to say no to. Men want to be him and women want to be thoroughly cross examined by him.

Stanton’s a man with a plan. And for a while, life was going according to that plan.

Until the day he receives an invitation to the wedding of his high school sweetheart and mother of his beloved ten-year old daughter. Jenny is getting married — to someone who isn’t him.

That's definitely not part of the plan.
***

Sofia Santos is a city raised, no-nonsense litigator who plans to become the most revered criminal defense attorney in the country. She doesn’t have time for relationships or distractions.

But when Stanton, her "friend with mind-blowing benefits" begs for help, she finds herself out of her element, out of her depth, and obviously out of her mind. Because she agrees to go with him – to The-Middle-Of-Nowhere, Mississippi – to do all she can to help Stanton win back the woman he loves. 

Her head tells her she's crazy...and her heart says something else entirely.
*** 

What happens when you mix a one stop-light town, two professional arguers, a homecoming queen, four big brothers, some Jimmy Dean sausage and a gun-toting Nana? 

The Bourbon flows, passions rise and even the best laid plans get overruled by the desires of the heart.

- Don't Look Back by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I read and bought this book back in April and it was apart of April Wrap-Up. You guys should really go and read this book! It's so good and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved it. I don't read a lot of mysteries, so I didn't get my hopes up too much. The only reason I bought it was because I really enjoy JLA's New Adult Wait For You Series and wanted to read more of her work. It was soon good and I read it within two days of starting it! Go. Read. It. Now!


Samantha is a stranger in her own life. Until the night she disappeared with her best friend, Cassie, everyone said Sam had it all-popularity, wealth, and a dream boyfriend. 

Sam has resurfaced, but she has no recollection of who she was or what happened to her that night. As she tries to piece together her life from before, she realizes it's one she no longer wants any part of. The old Sam took "mean girl" to a whole new level, and it's clear she and Cassie were more like best enemies. Sam is pretty sure that losing her memories is like winning the lottery. She's getting a second chance at being a better daughter, sister, and friend, and she's falling hard for Carson Ortiz, a boy who has always looked out for her-even if the old Sam treated him like trash. 

But Cassie is still missing, and the facts about what happened to her that night isn't just buried deep inside of Sam's memory-someone else knows, someone who wants to make sure Sam stays quiet. All Sam wants is the truth, and if she can unlock her clouded memories of that fateful night, she can finally move on. But what if not remembering is the only thing keeping Sam alive?

- 99 Days by Katie Cotugno. This was also a book that I featured in my April Wrap-Up. I have a review for it, if you would like to know my thoughts! CLICK HERE!



Day 1: Julia Donnelly eggs my house my first night back in Star Lake, and that’s how I know everyone still remembers everything—how I destroyed my relationship with Patrick the night everything happened with his brother, Gabe. How I wrecked their whole family. Now I’m serving out my summer like a jail sentence: Just ninety-nine days till I can leave for college, and be done.

Day 4: A nasty note on my windshield makes it clear Julia isn’t finished. I’m expecting a fight when someone taps me on the shoulder, but it’s just Gabe, home from college and actually happy to see me. “For what it’s worth, Molly Barlow,” he says, “I’m really glad you’re back.”

Day 12: Gabe got me to come to this party, and I’m actually having fun. I think he’s about to kiss me—and that’s when I see Patrick. My Patrick, who’s supposed to be clear across the country. My Patrick, who’s never going to forgive me.


- Landline by Rainbow Rowell. I have a review for this book too, so you can CLICK HERE to read my thoughts. Just know it's freaking amazing! 



Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble; it has been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply — but that almost seems beside the point now.

Maybe that was always beside the point.

Two days before they’re supposed to visit Neal’s family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can’t go. She’s a TV writer, and something’s come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her — Neal is always a little upset with Georgie — but she doesn't expect him to pack up the kids and go home without her.

When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she’s finally done it. If she’s ruined everything.

That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It’s not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she’s been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts... Is that what she’s supposed to do? Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened?



Well, that's all for now! I've put myself on a book buying ban, and haven't bought any books the whole month of May. Which has only been 9 days as of today, but that's okay! I've told myself that I can't buy any books (excluding Never Never Part 2 because I have to read that when it's released! #WhereIsCharlie?) for the month of May and I would also like to try and get at least ten of my TBR books off my shelf before I buy any more. So, wish me luck! It's actually been pretty easy so far, so hopefully the rest of the month goes as smoothly!!
