Top 10 Reads of 2017!

Hi everyone! 2017 is coming to an end and it's been another tough year for many. There's been so much turmoil, anger, and devastation that's affected many of us in the U.S. and all over the world. There are a lot of unknowns and worries going in to 2018 but I'm praying and hoping for a positive new year full of blessings!

We've had so many wonderful books to help us get through 2017. I'm thankful for all the authors out there! Please keep writing!

My top 10 reads of the year include some of my favorite authors and a few new-to-me authors!
Here are my favorites in no particular order 😊
To check out my reviews, just click the book titles!

SILVER SILENCE (Psy/Changeling Trinity #1) is the first book in a new story arc in the Psy-Changeling universe by Nalini Singh. I absolutely LOVED this book! The love story is so beautiful and Valentin is the perfect hero! He loves with his whole heart and made me fall in love with him throughout the whole story! There's danger, excitement, romance and crazy changeling hilarity! This is a MUST READ for any romance fan! Nalini Singh is my very favorite author. I don't think there's a book she's authored that I haven't enjoyed. If you're no familiar with Ms. Singh, please check her out! 

GAME ON is the sixth book in the Hometown Players series by Victoria Denault. This is the first of THREE hockey books on the top 10 list! There's just something about a sports romance that adds a little extra excitement to the story. Alex and Brie are amazing characters and their story was equally amazing! Ms. Denault is a new author to me, I really enjoyed her writing and I'm looking forward to checking out the other books in the Hometown Players series!

LEAVE THE NIGHT ON is the fourth book in the Cottonbloom series by Laura Trentham. The series is set in the small town of Cottonbloom, which is divided by a river and the borders of Mississippi (upper crust) and Louisiana (wrong side of the tracks). These opposites attract stories tug hard at your heartstrings and leave you desperate for more! Wyatt and Sutton have a long road to travel to claim their happily every after and I invite you to read this and every book in the series! Ms. Trentham's character building is tantamount to her talent as an author!

TANGLED IN TEXAS is the second book in the Texas Rodeo series by Kari Lynn Dell. A rodeo cowboy is rehabing an injury that could cost him his career. His physical therapist is trying to help this stubborn cowboy get back in the saddle while nursing her private heartache. This is a wonderful story full of healing and second chances! Ms. Dell lives and works her ranch in Montana with her husband and rodeos and writes books in her spare time! Check out her Facebook and Twitter for daily updates on life as a rancher!

WOLF HUNGER is the seventh book in the SWAT: Special Wolf Alpha Team series by Paige Tyler. The series is focused around the Dallas SWAT team that is secretly full of alpha wolf shifters. They are dangerous, deadly, protective and super sexy! Max is the hero in this book and he's lucky to enough to find his one true mate. But there's one big problem, she doesn't know she's a wolf! Lots of excitement, action and romance in this book! 

AFTER THE DARK is the first book in a new romantic suspense series, Killer Instinct by Cynthia Eden. Ms. Eden writes exciting, methodical and dark suspense books and she's outdone herself with this new series. Just when you think Ms. Eden can't get any better, she does! Our hero Samantha Dark is struggling with her failure to catch a psychotic serial killer and to escape her attraction of her former partner Blake Gamble. When the killings start again, Samantha is pulled back in to the deadly sights of a killer. This psychological thriller is a must read for suspense fans!

GOING FOR THE GOAL is the third book in The Perfect Play series by Sara Rider. This is the second hockey book on my list and just as amazing as the first! It's a great book full of heart and following your dreams. Nick and Jillian melted my heart and my Kindle screen with their romance and their crazy chemistry! Ms. Rider is also a new author to me and I love her writing style and quirky sense of humor!

UNDISCOVERED is the first book in the Amoveo Rising series by Sara Humphreys. This series is set in the same world as Ms. Humphrey's Amoveo Legend series and we'll also get to see cameos from many of our favorite characters from that series. The Amoveo Rising series introduces dragon shifters! The story building is engaging and the characters are easily relatable! I can't wait for the next one!

KISS ME, SHERIFF is a featured book in The Men of Thunder Ridge series by Wendy Warren. It's is a beautifully fragile love story that will well your tears and warm you heart! It was also an emotionally taxing read that left me all out of sorts! Wendy Warren is another new author to me and I really enjoyed her writing. I'm looking forward to reading more of her books!

BLOCKED is the second book in the Breakaway series by L.P. Dover. Ms. Dover is a new author to me and I really enjoyed her storytelling as she describes the thrill of the hockey season and everything that comes along with it: the exciting games, the fights, and the victories! I never wanted the story to end! I pulled an all-nighter to finish Dallas and Callie's story because I just couldn't put it down! If you haven't read a sports romance, I'd highly recommend BLOCKED or any of the hockey romances on the list!

Here are some honorable mentions that weren't in my top 10 but are still awesome books to check out!

UNTIL YOU by Denise Grover Swank
TOUGHER IN TEXAS by Kari Lynn Dell
