August held some new releases from favorite authors and discoveries of some new authors as well. Here are some books I enjoyed in August:
Fallow by Jordan L Hawk - The latest book in the Whyborne and Griffin series was as good as all the rest. I loved how their relationship continues to grow with each story, and I loved the insight into Griffin this journey back to his hometown gave us. Start at the beginning with this series, which is one of my favorites.
Power Play by Avon Gale - The third book of her Scoring Chances hockey romance series, and possibly my favorite so far. I loved this one. Max was just such a nice guy, and I just adored Misha. I loved these two together. You can read this as a stand alone, but the first two books are great too.
Wriggle and Sparkle by Megan Derr - A paranormal romance between a kraken shifter and a unicorn shifter told in a series of short stories. It was absolutely delightful and fun, and also had a powerful message about prejudice, bullying, and being who you are. I loved that Lynn was gender fluid and shifted between genders as well as between human and kraken too on page.
Blow Down by JL Merrow - The latest book in the Plumber's Mate series about a plumber with a psychic gift for finding things and his private investigator fiancee. They're fun mysteries, very amusing, and very British. Best to start with the beginning of this series to see the relationship develop.
Beta Test by Annabeth Albert - The second book in her Gaymers series and another really good one. This is very much opposites attract and a road trip romance. It stands alone, but the first book, Status Update, was great too.
A Time to Rise by Tal Bauer - This was a paranormal with vampires and demons and demon-hunting priests and Swiss Guard set in Rome and the Vatican. I had no idea what to expect, but I enjoyed this and I'm hoping for another book. I need to know what happens next, both in the romance and in the demon-hunting plot.
What have you read and enjoyed lately, and what are you looking forward to reading in September?
