Alrighty folks...the must read RECORD SERIES by K.A. Linde just continues to get better. Well I mean that for a couple of reasons. First off, book two in the series, ON THE RECORD, worked my nerves, because it took Liz and Brady too long to get their ish together...and the book focused on another relationship that I will not get into now...as to not reveal too many spoilers. But, I was happy with the ending.
Secondly, the fact that book three in the series, FOR THE RECORD, released last month, is good news...Finally, readers will be able to see what obstacles Liz and Brady will face now that the two are officially a couple and the media ride begins.
I haven't read book three as of yet, but, it has been sitting patiently in my kindle library and I'm about to start reading it in a few minutes.
So "get your life" and purchase/download FOR THE RECORD by K.A. Linde now if you haven't done so.

As always...Happy reading!
FOR THE RECORD [Book 3] - Released on 11.18.14
Synopsis via Amazon:
With Congressman Brady Maxwell up for reelection and journalist Liz Dougherty about to graduate into a promising career, the ambitious couple’s future is brighter than ever. They share a passion for their work…and for each other. But when Brady holds a press conference to officially introduce Liz as his girlfriend, reporters hungry for a scandal bombard her.
Now, her every move is under a vicious magnifying glass, and her life feels like it’s falling apart. On the road to reelection, the passionate bond between the congressman and the journalist gets tested at every stop. Threatened by shameless media sensationalism and jealous exes, Brady and Liz now have to learn to trust each other despite what they read in the papers.
In the finale to USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde’s sexy Record trilogy, Liz and Brady may be setting off fireworks along the campaign trail, but can their love transcend politics as usual?
In addition, if you are not familiar with the series, start with book one, OFF THE RECORD and book two, ON THE RECORD
OFF THE RECORD [Book 1]
Liz Dougherty has no idea that a single question is about to change her life. Her first big reporting assignment for her North Carolina college newspaper has her covering a state senator’s impromptu press conference.
Brady Maxwell may have everything it takes to be a politician—a winning pedigree, devastating good looks, a body made to wear suits—but his politics rub Liz the wrong way. When Liz’s hard-hitting question catches the upstart senator off-guard, it impresses Hayden Lane, Liz’s editor who feels she’s headed for a promising career as a reporter.
But Liz is also headed into a secret romance with Brady that could destroy both their ambitions. Though he’s a bachelor, potential voters might frown on Brady cozying up to a reporter. And Liz isn’t sure sneaking around is enough for her—especially when things between her and Hayden might be less platonic than she thought.
K.A. Linde’s Record series begins with a sleek, sexy, and smart venture into a high-stakes political campaign and an even higher-stakes affair that, in the end, will leave you wanting more with one of Linde’s gripping cliffhangers.
ON THE RECORD [Book 2]
For political reporter Liz Dougherty, election day—a day of looking toward the future and saying goodbye to the past—seems like a fitting time to start a new relationship. But feelings for her former flame still linger...
The sexy second book in bestselling author K.A. Linde’s Record series decides whether it’s better to pick up the pieces and move on...or to pick up right where you left off.

Last month Stephen King's newest and highly anticipated novel, REVIVAL, was released. At the time of the release, I immediately knew that I would be reading it in December and therefore, wanted REVIVAL to be the next book of the month choice.
As a major Stephen King fan, I couldn't wait to get my hands on a new copy of his newest terrifying tale. I look forward to one interesting read.
With that being said, REVIVAL by Stephen King, is the December 2014 book of the month pick.
Below is a link to purchase a copy to add to your kindle library or your bookshelf.

REVIVAL By Stephen King Amazon Link
As always...happy reading!
Synopsis via Amazon:
A dark and electrifying novel about addiction, fanaticism, and what might exist on the other side of life.
In a small New England town, over half a century ago, a shadow falls over a small boy playing with his toy soldiers. Jamie Morton looks up to see a striking man, the new minister. Charles Jacobs, along with his beautiful wife, will transform the local church. The men and boys are all a bit in love with Mrs. Jacobs; the women and girls feel the same about Reverend Jacobs—including Jamie’s mother and beloved sister, Claire. With Jamie, the Reverend shares a deeper bond based on a secret obsession.
When tragedy strikes the Jacobs family, this charismatic preacher curses God, mocks all religious belief, and is banished from the shocked town. Jamie has demons of his own. Wed to his guitar from the age of thirteen, he plays in bands across the country, living the nomadic lifestyle of bar-band rock and roll while fleeing from his family’s horrific loss. In his mid-thirties—addicted to heroin, stranded, desperate—Jamie meets Charles Jacobs again, with profound consequences for both men. Their bond becomes a pact beyond even the Devil’s devising, and Jamie discovers that revival has many meanings.
This rich and disturbing novel spans five decades on its way to the most terrifying conclusion Stephen King has ever written. It’s a masterpiece from King, in the great American tradition of Frank Norris, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Edgar Allan Poe.

Synopsis via Amazon:
[Released on November 18, 2014]
The #1 New York Times and #1 USA Today bestseller.
Gideon calls me his angel, but he's the miracle in my life. My gorgeous, wounded warrior, so determined to slay my demons while refusing to face his own. The vows we'd exchanged should have bound us tighter than blood and flesh.
Instead they opened old wounds, exposed pain and insecurities, and lured bitter enemies out of the shadows. I felt him slipping from my grasp, my greatest fears becoming my reality, my love tested in ways I wasn't sure I was strong enough to bear.
At the brightest time in our lives, the darkness of his past encroached and threatened everything we'd worked so hard for. We faced a terrible choice: the familiar safety of the lives we'd had before each other or the fight for a future that suddenly seemed an impossible and hopeless dream...

As always... Happy reading!
Mob Boss Eleven: The Wrong One (The Mob Boss Series Book 11)

Life is good for the Gabrini clan. Italian heartthrob Reno Gabrini and his beautiful wife Trina are expanding their empire across the south. Gorgeous Tommy Gabrini and his wife Grace are celebrating the arrival of a bouncing baby girl.
Hunky tough guy Sal and his smart and sexy wife Gemma are newlyweds and enjoying peace and happiness for a change. Life is good. Until an ambush in a bar changes everything.
Allegiances are questioned. Relationships are frayed. And the Gabrini men go to war to avenge a different kind of enemy, one foolish (or cunning) enough to dare to harm their loved ones. In the latest installment of the Mob Boss series, the Gabrini men come together in an explosive mix of romance, action, and their trademark love.
Sal Gabrini 4: I'll Take You There (The Gabrini Men Series Book 7)
Synopsis via Amazon:
[Released on August 5, 2014]
It should have been the best time of his life. Italian tough guy and business mogul Sal Gabrini asks his beautiful African-American girlfriend, criminal defense attorney Gemma Jones, to marry him. And she says yes.
But the world around them says no. No to their happiness. No to their union. No to any peace for either one of them. But Sal and Gemma fight tooth and nail to stay together, even as everybody, including those who should be happiest for them, fight tooth and nail to keep them apart.
In the fourth installment of the Sal and Gemma interracial love story, we find a couple determined to find happiness despite their many storms.
Big Daddy Sinatra: There Was a Ruthless Man (The Sinatras of Jericho County Book 1)
I've read both books in this series and Mallory Monroe does not disappoint. Charles Sinatra (Big Daddy) and Jenay are a dynamic duo. Their chemistry is blazing and the drama is full of conniving, backstabbers, jealous exes, betrayal, revenge, and love beyond compare. The head of the Sinatra clan also has four grown sons and that in itself leads to even more drama...and perhaps romance?
I don't want to give away any spoilers...just trust me and purchase these must reads and thank me later.
Side Note: LOL --> Don't let the title deter you from reading this series. It is an interesting title, but, the story is what matters and it's off the chain.
Synopsis Via Amazon:
[Released on September 15, 2014]
Gorgeous business mogul Charles “Big Daddy” Sinatra is the most hated and feared man in Jericho County. But instead of despising it, he embraces it.

Jenay Franklin has had her share of setbacks in her life. Now she is a thirty-two year old woman just beginning her career in hotel management. When she is given an offer she can’t refuse from the very attractive and very powerful Charles Sinatra, she leaps at the chance to run one of his businesses, and eventually his heart. But in a town that does not accept change well, and with a man who is as ruthless as he is loving,
Jenay realizes that love and happiness in Jericho will come at a price. Charles, too, decides to give love another try with Jenay. But at what cost to himself, to his town, and to his four grown sons, all of whom have issues of their own?
Big Daddy Sinatra is the first book in the all-new, interracial romance series, The Sinatras of Jericho County, by Mallory Monroe

Synopsis via Amazon:

Handsome businessman Charles Sinatra and his regal African-American wife Jenay are living the good life in Jericho despite the bluebloods in town who despise their wealth and power and will stop at nothing to bring them down. Jenay continues to run Charles’s Bed and Breakfast, and Charles continues to run the rest of his empire with the same ruthlessness and uncompromising fearlessness he is known for.
He also continues to be there for his grown sons, despite their many issues. Even his oldest son Brent has found somebody to keep him warm, even though that somebody is Jenay’s best friend. But when Jenay becomes the target of somebody’s twisted revenge, Charles will stop at nothing to protect his family and to show the haters in town just how far he’s willing to go with his protection.
