Finding It
Losing It #3
By:  Cora Carmack
Release Date:  October 1, 2013 
Published By:  HarperCollins
Add to Goodreads HERE




Goodreads Summary:


Most girls would kill to spend months traveling around Europe after college graduation with no responsibility, no parents, and no-limit credit cards. Kelsey Summers is no exception. She's having the time of her life...or that's what she keeps telling herself.

It's a lonely business trying to find out who you are, especially when you're afraid you won't like what you discover. No amount of drinking or dancing can chase away Kelsey's loneliness, but maybe Jackson Hunt can. After a few chance meetings, he convinces her to take a journey of adventure instead of alcohol. With each new city and experience, Kelsey's mind becomes a little clearer and her heart a little less hers. Jackson helps her unravel her own dreams and desires. But the more she learns about herself, the more Kelsey realizes how little she knows about Jackson.



Why I Can't Wait:

I can't even begin to tell you how incredibly excited I am to read Finding It!  Cora Carmack had quickly become one of my favorite, and auto-buy authors!  I LOVED both Losing It, and Faking It!  These both were 5 Star Reads for me, and Faking It is easily in my Top 5 Favorite Books of 2013 so far!!!!  So as you can imagine, I have extremely high expectations for Finding It!  I'm looking forward to Cora's signature style of sexy swoon-worthiness, combines with humor, well-developed, and authentic characters, and an amazing all around story!





Origin
Lux #4
By:  Jennifer L. Armentrout
Release Date:  August 27, 2013

Goodreads Summary:



Daemon will do anything to get Katy back.

After the successful but disastrous raid on Mount Weather, he’s facing the impossible. Katy is gone. Taken. Everything becomes about finding her. Taking out anyone who stands in his way? Done. Burning down the whole world to save her? Gladly. Exposing his alien race to the world? With pleasure.

All Katy can do is survive.

Surrounded by enemies, the only way she can come out of this is to adapt. After all, there are sides of Daedalus that don’t seem entirely crazy, but the group’s goals are frightening and the truths they speak even more disturbing. Who are the real bad guys? Daedalus? Mankind? Or the Luxen?

Together, they can face anything. 

But the most dangerous foe has been there all along, and when the truths are exposed and the lies come crumbling down, which side will Daemon and Katy be standing on? And will they even be together?



Why I Can't Wait:

I LOVE the Lux Series, and Daemon Black is one of my book boyfriends!  I just can't get enough of him, not to mention the fact that the Lux series is action packed suspense, at it's best!  This series is fast-paced, and never gets boring!  Also, the cliffhanger in Opal was brutal, and I need to know what's going to happen next!  



Masquerade
Games #3
By:  Nyrae Dawn
Release Date:  January 7, 2014
Hachette Book Gr0up

Amazon Summary:


From bestselling author, Nyrae Dawn, comes Book 3 in her New Adult, Games Series!




After his father is put in prison for murder leaving his mother suicidal, Maddox Cross has always put his sister, Laney, first. Now living in Brenton, Virginia, Maddox has no idea what to do with his life, especially since Laney no longer needs him. One thing he does know is for the first time since losing football, he's found something else that's just for him--tattooing. When he meets a feisty young woman in the club where he works security, he has no idea that she has the ability to change his life forever.




Bee Malone has just moved to Brenton to open up her first tattoo parlor, Masquerade. Despite her young success, nothing is ever as it seems.  After being kidnapped at a young age, Bee has difficulty being the daughter her parents lost and letting go of the "parents" she was raised with. When she meets Maddox, she's immediately attracted to him and what starts out as a one night stand leaves Bee wanting to connect with him in more ways than one.


Once Maddox finds out about Masquerade, he wants nothing more than to join Bee. But letting him in means trying to figure out who she is and she's not ready for that. And yet, as the two get closer, they find themselves leaning on each other more than they are comfortable with. Will their stubborn nature tear them apart? Or push them closer together? 


70,000-80,000 words.



Why I Can't Wait:

Nyrae Dawn is such a fantastic author!  I loved Charade, and really enjoyed Facade.  As I was reading Facade, I became really interested in learning about Maddox, and was hoping that he would get his own story, and here it is!!!  I'm beyond excited, ad thrilled to read Masquerade.  I like the cover (the male model is gorgeous,) and the summary intrigues me.  Plus, I got to read an excerpt from Masquerade, which was at the end of my review copy of Facade, and I can't wait to read the whole story.  January, please come quick!  




What Are You Waiting On?
