October Reads & Recommendations

Since I'm just starting this today and because I read some pretty amazing books in the month of October... instead of a weekly post, you're going to get my October Recommendations.

These recommendations were all 4 or 5 star reads for me and listed in the order I read them.

All Lined Up  by Cora Carmack

AWESOME book.  I get in these moods where I want a fabulous New Adult Novel... especially with an athlete.  Cora is a star when it comes to these and All Lined Up is definitely a game winning Touch Down worthy of a massive celebration.  

Perfect character building with just enough drama and angst to keep you on the edge of your seat.  

Dallas and Carson kept me engrossed in their beautiful love story.  I'm definitely looking forward to Silas in All Broke Down!

Definite Recommend!

Another AWESOME read!  This was my first read by Julie Cross and I have to say it definitely won't be my last.  Obviously I'm all over these sports reads but this one was a definite Home Run!

The characters were perfectly built, the chemistry was absolute perfection, and the relationships all around were realistic. 

Annie was amazing all on her own... her humor kept me in stitches!  Add in Brody and you have an absolute perfect YA/NA crossover!  Just keep in mind these characters are still pretty young and make some stupid decisions ;)

Definite Recommend! 

Stupid Girl  by Cindy Miles

I'm seriously a sucker for New Adult Sports Romances... and apparently I like Baseball players (although, I always thought it was Football players lol) because here is another Home Run for y'all! 

Stupid Girl was a sweet little read about two very broken characters who are able to find happiness in each other.  They were able to over come fears and move forward toward everlasting love.  

Cindy Miles takes you on a journey with Olivia and Brax that leaves you wishing for even more of their story.  I'm already looking forward to Kane and Harper in Stupid Boy!


 One Night Stand by Parker Kincade

Alpha Male Alert!!!!  
Joe Sterling... sigh... I really don't need to say anything else lol.  

I have to admit there really wasn't anything spectacular about One Night Stand other than it kept
me highly engrossed... it was more on the erotic side than contemporary.  But it did still have a decent little story line going on.  

Sometimes we just need that perfect Alpha Male with a touch of insta-love and this was definitely a great one for that! 

I'm already salivating for the men of The Martin Family....Amanda has some seriously hot brothers who all have their own books! 


Spring Training  by Parker Kincade

I may have developed a little crush on the writing style that is Parker Kincade... and I'm starting to question my obsession with ball players ;) 

Spring Training was another cute little read with a laid back alpha male (who is hotter than you know what).  Just like One Night Stand, it has it's little insta-love connection which seemed to work perfectly for these characters and this story.  

Garrett and Jess may not have the easiest road to an HEA but they definitely get there in ways that had me happy and frustrated all at the same time. 


Dearest Clementine by Lex Martin

Refreshing, refreshing, refreshing!!!!  

Have you ever wondered what happened to all the normal book boyfriends?  You know, the ones who haven't bedded every beautiful woman out there?  The ones who have been in relationships and know how to treat their woman without being too overbearing for the heroine who needs that extra space? 

Yeah?  Well... here is a book for you!  

Clementine has some obsticles to overcome and Gavin... well Gavin is just the perfect man to help her through it all.  

I couldn't seem to force myself to put this book down. 

Definite Recommend! 

Her Purrfect Match by Milly Taiden 

I can't have a month without one of my hot shifters! (And to my girls who know my dirty little secret, which isn't so secret... it's not a menage lol)

I LOVE Milly Taiden's books... they're short, they come packed full of hot Alpha Male, and her heroines are always beautiful in that normal curvy way with a sense of humor I can't resist!

Her Purrfect Match is the 3rd book in the Paranormal Dating Agency and I have to say it's even better than the first two... but then again there is something awfully intriguing about a man who can not only turn into a lion but who is this grumpy loner that begins to smile because of his absolutely adorable mate!

Definite Recommend (ONLY if you like Paranormal)

There are my 4 and 5 star reads for the Month of October!  Starting next week, I will be posting weekly reads... it will be all the books (available for purchase only) I read the week before and my thoughts on them!  

I hope you have a fantastic week!

Happy Reading!


  1. I've been dying to read Whatever Life Throws at You because it is set in Kansas City, which is where I'm from!!

    1. It was an amazing book! Let me know what you think, I'm curious to see if anyone else loved Annie and her interactions with other people as much as I did :)
