Give Me Your All & Nothing Else | Romance Short List

I borrowed the title of this post from a Selena Gomez song (Hands to Myself). I’ve been obsessed with new releases from her and Demi Lovato lately. They are both sexy and confident and strong, and both new albums reflect that. I’m not sure how natural of a segway this is into ROMANCE NOVELS but I’m […]

molly | wrapped up in books - I’m going to try that Victoria Dahl. I could be into some hot guy librarian!

October 28, 2015 - 11:36 am

Alexa S. - When the weather gets cooler, I always find that I’m much more in the mood for reading romances! Though I gravitate towards historical romances more often, I do find myself reading romances in all genres. From the ones you’ve included, I really want to check out TAKING THE HEAT! It sounds like a really great read 🙂

October 28, 2015 - 10:22 am

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - I cannot get enough romance lately. I just want more and more and more romance novels. I have read Taking the Heat and it was amazing! Definitely a favorite.

Leah - You had me at cowboy ♥ & I’m super curious about Victoria Dahl – I follow her on twitter and absolutely adore her (and her naughty, naughty ways) so I can only imagine what her books are like!

April 17, 2015 - 9:48 am

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - I have never read Victoria Dahl but I really want too! I think I have one of her ebooks. I’m glad to hear that you really like them. I need to move her books to the top of my TBR.

And Part Time Cowboy totally looks up my alley. I’m adding it to my TBR right now. I love that cover.

Alexa S. - Ooh, this sounds positively fun! I’ve only read one Dahl novel, but this kind of makes me want to check out the rest of her books. This one sounds especially enticing, especially because the MC is so empowered!

August 15, 2014 - 1:36 pm

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - I love Victoria Dahl! I obviously haven’t started this series but wouldn’t hesitate to. Also I love the covers of her books. This sounds FUN and like something I would LOVE.

August 15, 2014 - 1:16 pm

Wendy @ Book Scents - I actually still haven’t read any Victoria Dahl yet but this sounds good! I definitely am adding this to my list! It sounds really interesting!

August 15, 2014 - 11:50 am

Irish - I’ve been looking for a new book to read and I haven’t read Victoria Dahl in ages. I think now might be the time to revisit this author as this one sounds interesting.

November 4, 2013 - 2:53 pm

Alexa Y. - I rarely read contemporary romances, but this one sounds fun (as do most of the ones that you post about)! I like the aspect of them being friends before, and meeting again many years later. Plus, cowboys are always a good thing 😉

October 16, 2013 - 8:41 pm

Holly - The last romance I read is the Wrong Billionaire’s Bed by Jessica Clare. Great book!

October 16, 2013 - 12:54 pm

Amy R - I am currently reading Drawn Together by Lauren Dane.

October 16, 2013 - 11:41 am

Hannah - Last romance I read was probably Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks. My favourite book of all time, I probably read it like one a month, and every time is just as good as the previous!

October 14, 2013 - 6:41 pm

April Books & Wine - I am jonesing for a good contemporary romance — I might have to take a break from Christmas romance and read So Tough To Tame soon!

October 12, 2013 - 5:44 am

michelle - i love the second chance/old friends/shared history romance trope. actually i really like romance novels where the heroine and hero are not meeting for the first, that they have some sort of history because then i’m able to buy that they fall in love in a relatively short amount of time. i gotta read this book!

October 10, 2013 - 9:57 pm

Wendy - Ohhh I love love love cowboys. So basically, I need to check this one out. =) Last romance I read was Lucky in Love, the 4th in the lucky harbor series!

October 10, 2013 - 9:45 pm

Betty - Romance…. I just read the first 2 books of Colleen Hoover’s Slammed series. LOVED THEM!! Gotta grab book 3 soon. I’m all for some steam when there is a great story behind it! Not sold on cowboys, but maybe this one will change my mind??? 😉

October 10, 2013 - 9:34 pm

Jamie - Is Victoria Dahl related to Ronald Dahl the other famous children’s author? Looks like an amazing read!

October 10, 2013 - 2:46 pm

Jamie - CRAP. I commented before I entered the giveaway. My answer: The Duke and I…which I LOVED.

October 10, 2013 - 2:45 pm

Jamie - COWBOYS! I know some people gagged in the Unearthly series bc Tucker was a cowboy but I LOVED IT. Which is probably why I watch Nashville. And probably why I find Keith Urban and Tim McGraw super sexy (and Blake Shelton..even when he wore a cowboy hat with his LOOOOONG hair). Something about those men.

ANYWAYS..back to the book! I’ve heard of this author but obviously you know I’m so new to the romance scene that I haven’t read anything by her. I’m already LOVING that this is set in Jackson Hole bc I had a friend who was from there and it was BEAUTIFUL (from the pictures she showed me haha). This sounds so good and I like that you emphasize that there is more than just panty melting scenes. Sounds like my kind of book as I ease into the genre!

Thanks for the giveaway, too!

October 10, 2013 - 12:50 pm

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - I’ve never read anything by Victoria Dahl, but now I want to just to see what the steaminess is like. Plus, a good story is always a plus!

October 10, 2013 - 11:31 am

Therine - The last book I read was Bunheads by Sophie Flack… its a good book with a stupid ending.

October 10, 2013 - 10:04 am

Hollie @ Music, Books and Tea - I’m really into romance novels at the moment, so I’ll definitely have to look into this one. I’m pleased that it’s got a good balance of story and hot scenes – it always makes for a more fun read. Fab review!

October 10, 2013 - 9:35 am

Tammy - I’m currently reading a romance novel, Nearly A Lady by Alissa Johnson. Someone recommended it I just don’t remember who 🙂

The Big Kids’ Table: Holiday Shopping Guide Edition

Friends, I can’t believe I am writing my 12th Big Kids’ Table post right now. When I started up this idea in January, I wanted to open up my reading world to new books, even though I had found a new and lovely home in the young adult genre. For me, it’s always best for […]

Alexa Y. - I am ashamed to admit that I have not read any of the adult titles in this post, even though a bunch of them are on my TBR! I really should remedy that…

December 11, 2012 - 5:26 am

Hemborgwife - You cracked me up about the mom safe books because my grandma loves to read and loves to read Nora Roberts and the like and some of the books she has given me when she was done I was like ummmmmm yeah that was some serious sexy-time going on and I do not want to think my grandma just read this!

Jess - What a great list. I want to check out The Empty Glass.

December 8, 2012 - 4:55 am

Rebecca @ Reading Wishes - “My mom has always been a fan of romance novels and I keep thinking of books I may want to gift her… but I’m a little uncomfy giving her ones with super sexytimes.” YES. Yes, yes, yes! I TOTALLY get where your coming from. My mum’s the same and loves romance novels and I’m often recommending her titles I think sound good or I’ve heard about through book bloggers who read a bit of Adult like Ginger from Greads. I know there’s sexytimes in all the books she reads but when I’m the one choosing her a book I’m a little cautious and go for more subtle titles that don’t ooze too super sexytimes in the premise and one’s where the covers aren’t of half naked people (although she does like those, I must admit). Thanks for all the great adult recommendations! I think my mum will love all these so I’ll be sure to look into them further. I’ve heard great things about Rainbow Rowell and I know her titles are available at my local library so I think when she’s reading Attachments, I’ll be reading Eleanor & Park – sounds like a plan!

December 8, 2012 - 1:51 am

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - Another great list! Everytime I see you tweet about another Big Kids’ Table post, I always hurry over to see what you’ve recommended. I don’t read nearly enough big kids’ books, but I totally should. And I LOVED your YA picks for the big kids’ table — especially Second Chance Summer. I think the themes in that book will resonate with readers of all ages. Great choices!

December 7, 2012 - 6:56 pm

elena - I’m so glad you enjoyed Attachments so much. I still need to read Saving Ruth, it sounds FANTASTIC! Hooray for Second Chance Summer. 🙂

December 7, 2012 - 4:56 pm

Allison (Allure of Books) - Attachments, City of Women and I’ll Be There are all on my list – sigh. I waaaaant them.

I love LOVE that you feature adult books <3

December 7, 2012 - 4:03 pm

Lisa is Busy Nerding - I LOVE that you share adult titles! You rock my world.

Also thanks for the reminder that I need to get The Empty Glass from the library.

December 7, 2012 - 12:50 pm

Sharon @ The Book Barbies - Ooh, thanks for the list! I just discovered Susan Mallery this year, and I need to read more of her books. I could see her writing a fantastic Christmas novel.

I heard about Attachments quite a while ago and was hesitant to read it. It sounded like it could be good, but I probably wasn’t going to jump in and actually read it. After reading your thoughts, though, I just might!

Also, YES. I am so glad someone else hates the term “new adult!” I have always wished for more books with that age group, and I love that it is finally becoming recognized as a credible genre. But I can’t stand the name.

December 7, 2012 - 12:19 pm

Tara - How have I only read one of these?!?! I seriously need to read your copy of City of Women stat because it’s borderline ridiculous that I haven’t yet.

December 7, 2012 - 11:53 am

Anna - My sister would pee her pants if she saw this but I’m not going to show her because she will start in on the Harry Potter thing! She was the big sister so when a new book would come out, we’d go out at midnight and get it, but then SHE would get to read it first. I distinctly remember this — Little Sister Syndrome! So the books were our “shared” books and therefore I do not have custody of them and they’re at our parents house wahhh!

The Big Kids’ Table: Adult Fiction/Non-Fic Picks (8/12)

I can’t believe summer is more than halfway over already. Any minute New York is going to be decking the halls with holiday decor. (I’m not kidding.) Let’s focus on the book, shall we? Here are a handful of upcoming adult releases I discovered in the pages of Publishers Weekly. They sound like winners to […]

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - You know I ADORE this series on your blog – it always gives me more books to add to my list! I’m especially looking forward to reading She Matters and Losing My Sister; I love books that explore female relationships.

August 9, 2012 - 2:45 pm

The Bumble Girl - Oh my, I read a Victoria Dahl novel earlier this year and did not expect it to be so HOT! And I was so red-faced when my mother borrowed it, lol!
I just added Hemingway’s Girl to my must-read-this-year-list! Everything about it sounds divine!
Great list, thanks for sharing it 🙂
