Top Ten Things I Am Thankful For (could be bookish or not -- up to you)- My top ten will be books I am Thankful I read. Can not take credit for this idea, stalking Addicted To Romance and thought what a fun way to share my thankful reads.
Lora Leigh was many first reads in different genre's for me. I was in a huge Paranormal faze when I first read Lora Leigh so I read Megan's Mark (Breeds #7) first. Instantly fell in love with her Alpha Male heroes that I had to have more novels with Alpha Male heroes and more from her. Dangerous Games (Tempting SEALs #2) was my first seals (anything military). And Wicked Pleasure (Bound Hearts 9) was my first Erotic Romance and Menage. Nothing like starting your first erotic romance with Menage. Happy most of my first were with Lora Leigh as she has opened up to so much of my reading in different genres. She is 100% to blame for my crazed-of-need-to-have-an-Alpha Male hero in my novels.
Reaper's Property (Reapers MC) and Undeniable (Undeniable #1) will forever ruin every other MC novels out there for me. This is how I like my MC novels Raw, Gritty and pushes my boundaries that are well written. I did read The Dream Man series first by Kristen Ashley and fell hard for Tack from the beginning and got me wanting more heroes in MC and loved his novel Motorcycle Man (Dream Man #4) and the spin off his novel Chaos is a light version compare to Reapers MC and Undeniable series.
My Man, Michael (SBC Fighters #4) was the first book that introduce me to Lori Foster and a SBC fighter hero. I instantly fell in love with her Alpha Male heroes and her writing style. Lori Foster to date is one of my favorite authors. Now one of my favorite heroes are SBC and MMA Fighters.
Huge fan of Nalini Singh and will read anything she writes. It was Angels' Blood (Guild Hunter #1) that got me hooked on Archangel or Angel heroes. But to date nothing compares to her alpha male hero archangel Raphael.
Dark Lover (Black Dagger Brotherhood #1) not only did I love J.R. Wards alpha male heroes in Dark Lover but I loved the bickering between them, that I like to call as boys club. I find in novels I read with secondary characters I like having the boys club theme. It seems to add so much to the story. But will admit I still have yet to get past reading Lover Avenged (Black Dagger Brotherhood #7) . Some day I will pick back up with this series.
Instantly became a fan of Rebecca Zanetti after reading Fated (Dark Protectors #1). She writes sexy Alpha Male heroes and has the boys club theme going on. Her heroes remind me of Lora Leigh Alpha Males where they have no problems killing for their loved ones and boys club theme like J.R. Wards BDB novels where the bickering adds so much to the story and never know what will come out of their mouths. I will read anything by Rebecca Zanetti. Happy she has come out with a Contemporary Romance series and Romantic Suspense
Cowgirl Up and Ride (Rough Riders #3) was not only my first Lorelei James novel but first sexy cowboy read. Cord McKay is my first sexy alpha male cowboy and will always have a special place in my heart. Instantly became a fan of Lorelei James.
Never Seduce a Scot (The Montgomerys and Armstrongs #1) is not my first Maya Banks read. Already was a huge fan of hers but it is my first rememberable read with a sexy highlander alpha male hero. Monica McCarty is now one of my favorite authors after reading The Recruit (Highland Guard #6). After reading these two I want more Sexy-Alpha Male-Highlanders.
Club Shadowlands (Masters of the Shadowlands #1) my first Cherise Sinclair read and instantly became a fan of her sexy Dom's and her writing style. Love this series and she has found a spot on my one of my Top Favorite authors.
Fallen Too Far (Too Far Trilogy #1) was my first Abbi Glines read and I believe was my second NA read. I remember after reading it I had to have more of her novels ASAP and wanted more of New Adult.
Well I went over but had to add two more to my list.
Captive in the Dark (The Dark Duet #1) was my second dubious consent and first read by C.J. Roberts. After reading this Dark novel I want more Caleb and more reads like this. So far C.J. Roberts is my favorite. Never thought I would be into dubious consent or fall in love with a hero like Caleb. Thankful I gave this genre a go and look forward to more.
The beginning this year found a new read, One Night Stand (The Martin Family #1) and instantly became a new fan of Parker Kincade. She sucked me right in with her lovely writing voice, wickedly delicious couple, yummy alpha males, boys club theme. She is now one of my top favorite author. Thankful I found a new series and author I get excited for future reads.
