Stacking the Shelves: Week of November 8

stacking the shelves

Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews
The object of this meme is to share the books you’ve borrowed or bought throughout the week.

Bought quite a bit this week, which I blame on the Harlequin sale going on right now. I ended up with 7 new books on my TBR pile, 5 of which were from the sale.


danger of dating a rebound vampire

The Dangers of Dating a Rebound Vampire by Molly Harper

Genre: Paranormal Romance

In the next book in Molly Harper’s beloved Half Moon Hollow paranormal romance series, Gigi starts her first job (at Vampire Headquarters), gets over her first love, and may even fall for her first vampire!

Gigi is no longer an innocent teen. All grown up and looking for love, her family and friends worry she’ll go for the sexy, alluring vampire instead of a nice, safe human. But sexy and alluring, with a penchant for biting, could be just what Gigi wants…


holiday in death

Holiday in Death by J.D. Robb

Genre: Mystery

No one likes to be alone during the holidays. And for New York’s most posh dating service, Personally Yours, it is the season to bring lonely hearts together. But Lieutenant Eve Dallas, on the trail of a ritualistic serial killer, has made a disturbing discovery: All of the killer’s victims have been traced to Personally Yours. As the murders continue, Eve enters an elite world of people searching for their one true love – and a killer searching for his next victim. A world where the power of love leads men and women into the ultimate act of betrayal…


the way back

The Way Back by Stephanie Doyle

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Starting over sounds good…in theory!

The reality? Well, Gabriella Haines isn’t enjoying that so much. Once a top-rated TV host, suddenly becoming the junior editor at a publishing house isn’t playing to her strengths. She does have one chance to fast-forward a few career steps, however. If she can manage the impossible—convincing former American hero Jamison Hunter to finish the autobiography he owes them.

Too bad he’s resistant to all her tactics. Worse, that little star crush Gabby had on him before his downfall? She isn’t quite as over it as she thought. In fact, the more she knows the real him, the more she wants to uncover the truth about what happened. Because restoring him in the public eye may be the best chance they have at a future together.


hot under pressure

Hot Under Pressure by Kathleen O’Reily

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Boutique owner Ashley Taylor hates flying. Especially when there’s a sugar-fueled little hellion on board. But then David McLean (sexy!) sits next to her, and suddenly Ashley finds herself hoping the delay will last forever–and that David won’t notice her comfy pink bunny slippers (sadly, the opposite of sexy).

David does notice Ashley, and when the flight is delayed overnight, they can’t get to the airport hotel fast enough. Off with the slippers and in with the zing! Fortunately, America is filled with cities–L.A., New York, Miami–and nothing says “smoking-hot passion” like an intercontinental affair!


her secret fling

Her Secret Fling by Sarah Mayberry

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Jake Stevens–star reporter and celebrated literary genius–is a snake. How else to explain the way he turns Poppy Birmingham’s hero worship into loathing with a single conversation? So what if she’s got a lot to learn about journalism? Aren’t they coworkers now? On the same team? Jake can take his attitude and…

Then during a job-related road trip, their relationship goes from antagonistic to hedonistic in no time flat. And suddenly Poppy can’t think of anything more delicious than having a secret fling with Jake. But with all this intensity, can she really keep it no-strings-attached?


burning up

Burning Up by Sarah Mayberry

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Spending a month as personal chef for an overindulged–and mouthwatering–man? Sophie Gallagher is so up for the challenge. She’s immune to charm…or so she thinks. Because when big-screen star Lucas Grant turns up the temptation, she discovers–up close and personal–he’s earned the name hottest man alive.

Sophie is fun, vivacious and couldn’t be further from Lucas’s bimbo bombshell type. Much to his surprise, she’s captivated him. But as sizzling as they are between the sheets, once his hiatus is over, the credits will roll on this fling. Saying goodbye, however, isn’t as easy as he’d thought. Will this production be The End of the Affair… or Love Actually?


boomerang bride

Boomerang Bride by Fiona Lowe

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Matilda Geoffrey had risked it all for love.

She’d left Australia to be with Barry—the man who had swept her off her virtual feet. Now, wearing a wedding dress, she’s alone on Main Street in small-town Wisconsin, and things aren’t working out exactly as planned….

In town for his annual family visit, Marc Olsen had never seen a bride quite like Matilda—staring into a storefront window, holding a tottering wedding cake and looking desperately in need of a groom. He doesn’t have many warm feelings for his hometown, but meeting Matilda just as she discovers she’s been scammed by her online “fiancé” stirs something in him.

Matilda is not the kind of woman Marc imagined himself with, and Marc is anything but the romantic hero that Matilda has always dreamed of. But as unlikely circumstances throw them together, can they let go of their misconceptions and risk their hearts for love?

    • Thanks, Tsuki! You’re stronger than I am for resisting the sale. I don’t read a whole lot of series romance but for some reason I decided I needed to add 5 onto my shelves.

    • I agree! The cover of Boomerang Bride is interesting. The premise alone didn’t really strike me, but I’ve seen a few people recommend it so I decided to bite the bullet. Crossing my fingers that it’s a good one.

    • Hi Kim, Indeed I did! I couldn’t resist snagging a few of these titles for 2 bucks. I like a good humorous vampire story as well. I’m hoping I enjoy this installment in Harper’s series. 🙂
