RY - RB banner

“This is Hoover at her very best.” Publishers Weekly

Regretting You, an all-new poignant and moving novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover, is available now!

Hoover-Regretting You-28904-PB-FT

Morgan Grant and her sixteen-year-old daughter, Clara, would like nothing more than to be nothing alike.
Morgan is determined to prevent her daughter from making the same mistakes she did. By getting pregnant and married way too young, Morgan put her own dreams on hold. Clara doesn’t want to follow in her mother’s footsteps. Her predictable mother doesn’t have a spontaneous bone in her body.
With warring personalities and conflicting goals, Morgan and Clara find it increasingly difficult to coexist. The only person who can bring peace to the household is Chris—Morgan’s husband, Clara’s father, and the family anchor. But that peace is shattered when Chris is involved in a tragic and questionable accident. The heartbreaking and long-lasting consequences will reach far beyond just Morgan and Clara.
While struggling to rebuild everything that crashed around them, Morgan finds comfort in the last person she expects to, and Clara turns to the one boy she’s been forbidden to see. With each passing day, new secrets, resentment, and misunderstandings make mother and daughter fall further apart. So far apart, it might be impossible for them to ever fall back together.

Anything Colleen Hoover writes, I immediately want my hands on. She's one of those authors where you would literally read anything by her. Her grocery list...yes! She has a way with her words and a talent to tell an incredible story. Colleen is one of the rare authors were I go in blind when I read her books. And Regretting You was no different. I went into this book completely blind and ready for an amazing read. 

Though I can admit it wasn't what I thought it was going to be, I have to say it was probably one of my most favorite stories. It pulls you right into the story and leaves you breathless. The struggles in the story and the heart ache, are so real, so raw. With real issues and pain that people probably feel all too often. Regretting You touches on heartfelt moments and heartbreaking disasters. 

When a sudden tragedy strikes mother Morgan and her daughter Clara, they are left to pick up the pieces. Holding onto each other is what you would think would happen but that's the furtherest from what happens to this duo. They hurt each other and push at each other. Picking the scab and making each other bleed. Making the pain unbearable for each other. 

But Morgan and Clara find comfort in two people they never though they would find solace in. These two go on a journey in Regretting You. One that will have you hanging onto the handle bars the whole time. This story is simply another breathtaking read from Colleen. I adored this story so much and the characters. The character development over the course of the book is beautiful and a book I will never forget.

It was never a question of love.
I knew I loved Elias Lancaster and that he loved me.
At least I always thought he did.
But for some reason, he always found an excuse not to be with me.
The pain I felt as my childhood love rejected me, again and again, after promising me the world when we were kids…
Well, it just wouldn’t go away.
No matter how hard I tried.
Desperate times called for desperate measures, and I never wanted to be considered desperate, but I knew if something didn’t change soon, I’d lose Elias for good and die of a broken heart.
No one told me how many times my heart could break in the process.

Release Day Blitz: ADORKABLE by Cookie O'Gorman

Today we have the release day blitz for Adorkable by Cookie O’Gorman! Check it out and be sure to grab your paperback copy today!

Title: Adorkable

Author: Cookie O’Gorman

Genre: YA Romance

“Captivating, fun, and totally swoon-worthy! This is the kind of story my reader heart craves.” ―Rachel Harris, New York Times bestselling author of Eyes on Me

Available in print for the first time, and with exclusive bonus content only found in the print version! Fall in love with Sally and Becks all over again.

Adorkable (ah-dor-kuh-bul): Descriptive term meaning to be equal parts dorky and adorable. For reference, see Sally Spitz.

Seventeen-year-old Sally Spitz is done with dating. Or at least, she's done with the horrible blind dates/hookups/sneak attacks her matchmaking bestie, Hooker, sets her up on. There's only so much one geek girl and Gryffindor supporter can take.

Her solution: She needs a fake boyfriend. And fast.

Enter Becks, soccer phenom, all-around hottie, and Sally's best friend practically since birth. When Sally asks Becks to be her F.B.F. (fake boyfriend), Becks is only too happy to be used. He'd do anything for Sal―even if that means giving her PDA lessons in his bedroom, saying she's "more than pretty," and expertly kissing her at parties.

The problem: Sally's been in love with Becks all her life―and he's completely clueless.

This book features two best friends, one special-edition Yoda Snuggie, countless beneath-the-ear kisses, and begs the question:

Who wants a real boyfriend when faking it is so much more fun?

Amazon | Barnes and Noble

"You're not seriously going to listen to them," I said flatly. "What else can I do?" "Becks, beware the dark side." "What's that supposed to mean?" "It's a Yoda-ism," I said, "and you know exactly what it means. Becks, have you no shame?" "Nope," he said, lifting the jersey over his head in one swift pull, causing a mixture of applause, screaming and appreciative sighs. I shook my head, struggling to keep my eyes north of his jaw line. "What can I say, Sal?" he said, backing away. "It's like that line from that show Oklahoma. I'm just a guy who can't say no." Flicking his jersey at one of the cheerleaders, he hot footed it out to center field, grinning all the while. He gave a frowning Coach Crenshaw a swat to the backside, and then the team got down to business. I wrote down Becks's quote, making a side note to include it in my next article, while the girl who'd caught Becks's jersey gripped the shirt to her heart and pretended to faint. At least, I hoped it was pretend.


Cookie O'Gorman writes YA romance to give readers a taste of happily-ever-after. Small towns, quirky characters, and the awkward yet beautiful moments in life make up her books. Cookie also has a soft spot for nerds and ninjas.

Release Day: DIAMOND & DAWN by Lyra Selene




Lyra Selene returns to the incandescent magic of Amber & Dusk in a second installment about the corrosions of even the most dazzling dreams, and the strength of hope amidst darkness.

Mirage, triumphant in her coup of the Amber Empire, returns to the palais prepared to take her place as Empress. With the support of her friends, Luca and Lullaby, and a tentative, blossoming romance with Sunder, Mirage is on the cusp of taking hold of everything she has wanted.

However, her place in the sun is not as sure as she expected; nor is it quite as bright as she imagined.

When the Empress Severine's body is recovered from the battle, she is not dead after all -- in a coma, she still represents a threat to Mirage's newfound power. Worse, a distant cousin, Gavin d'Ars, Duc de Douane, appears in court to challenge both women with his blood claim, and to propose a series of trials to determine the most deserving heir. In Mirage's fight to defend her vision for the empire, she begins to splinter all of her networks. Will the battle for control leave anyone untainted?

43319726. sy475
Sylvie has always known she deserves more. Out in the permanent twilight of the Dusklands, her guardians called her power to create illusions a curse. But Sylvie knows it gives her a place in Coeur d'Or, the palais of the Amber Empress and her highborn legacies.

So Sylvie sets off toward the Amber City, a glittering jewel under a sun that never sets, to take what is hers.

But her hope for a better life is quickly dimmed. The empress invites her in only as part of a wicked wager among her powerful courtiers. Sylvie must assume a new name, Mirage, and begin to navigate secretive social circles and deadly games of intrigue in order to claim her spot. Soon it becomes apparent that nothing is as it appears and no one, including her cruel yet captivating sponsor, Sunder, will answer her questions. As Mirage strives to seize what should be her rightful place, she'll have to consider whether it is worth the price she must pay.


An extraordinary, vividly rendered YA debut.

The tailor squawked as Dane pushed him aside, striding toward me in his underwear. He put his hands on the arms of my chair and leaned over me, his eyes on mine. I could see every inch of his naked skin. He glared at me. “I get it,” he growled. “You’re pushing me. It’s what you do. Are you trying to see how far you can go?” My voice came out breathy. God, I could smell him. “I’m not doing anything,” I said, and we both knew it was a lie. “What do you want?” Dane said, thick with frustration. “Do you want me to say I’m sorry?” My hands went cold and my breath stopped. “Sorry for what?” “You know what. Sorry for what I did the last time I saw you.” He thought he had to apologize for that? As if he had done something wrong? Had he thought that all this time? I couldn’t bear the idea. “No,” I told him. “Don’t say you’re sorry for that.” He still watched me, his voice softening a little. “I’ll say it if you want me to.” “Don’t,” I choked out. “Don’t.” A muscle in his jaw twitched, and then he shook his head, backing off. “Can I at least put my clothes on now?” I didn’t answer, and he didn’t wait for it. He grabbed his clothes and shoes and put them under his arm. “I’m going to dress in the men’s room,” he growled. “I’d like some privacy for a second.” I still couldn’t speak. Dane walked away, and I downed the rest of the champagne in my glass, gulping it. He thought I wanted him to apologize. That fucking man. That brilliant, stupid, utterly infuriating man. I put my heels back on and stood up, looking at the suits and fabrics in the room. Now that the measurements were—mostly—done, I talked to the tailor about cuts, fabrics, and colors. Then my phone rang. Only after I hung up did I realize that Dane hadn’t come out of the bathroom, which was around the corner and down the hall. “Would you like me to go find him?” the tailor asked politely. “No need,” I said as suspicion bloomed in my gut. I walked around the corner myself, pushing open the door to the men’s room. “Dane!” The room was empty. “Fuck,” I said as the tailor came in after me. I turned to him. “Is there a back door?” He looked stunned. Most likely, none of his rich clients had ever made an escape while getting measured for a bespoke suit. “At the end of the hall,” he said. “Fuck,” I said again. I half-ran down the hall, moving as fast as I could in my three-inch heels. I slammed the back door open and saw nothing but parking lot. Dane was gone.
