planned paperback purchases

This is my list of paperbacks I plan to buy. Each has their own reason for me wanting them. A loved book, price, or simply put I HAVE TO HAVE IT! Yea there are a lot of I have to have it's but let me break it down to the ones I will be purchasing within the next few months time.

The Shannara Chronicles (3 Book Series) by  Terry Brooks
The Shannara Chronicles

I first learned of this series when I seen the first season on netflix. Now don't judge I did watch it before reading the books. And I am told there is missing info in the tv series! oh why did I not read the books first. Anyway I plan to have them on my shelf and read soon enough.

book description:

Living in peaceful Shady Vale, Shea Ohmsford knew little of the troubles that plagued the rest of the world. Then the giant, forbidding Allanon revaled that the supposedly dead Warlock Lord was plotting to destory the world. The sole weapon against this Power of Darkness was the Sword of Shannara, which could only be used by a true heir of Shannara--Shea being the last of the bloodline, upon whom all hope rested. Soon a Skull Bearer, dread minion of Evil, flew into the Vale, seeking to destroy Shea. To save the Vale, Shea fled, drawing the Skull Bearer after him....

Ripped & Twisted by [Edwards, Jennifer Lassalle]Ripped and Twisted 

This is one of those that the author has some pretty fucking cool swag for purchasing through them directly. I mean who doesn't want a "Cuntzilla" pin. I DO!! I have read this book and absolutely loved it. Its smutty and just downright right up my ally. This is one of those books that just did it for me. So I need the paperback signed on my shelf to display an awesome indie author.

book description:

Faith Dumont is a witty, confident, fiery fitness competitor, or so she appears to everyone else. Yet no one knows the horrors that she's endured and escaped to create this seemingly perfect life. No one knows the battle of self-loathing and deviant urges Faith battles daily.
She keeps her demons under control by her regimented, disciplined lifestyle. Faith has also implemented “rules” into her life, specifically a “no dating” rule. This rule was made to protect her heart. Life in the gym keeps her sane, to an extent, however, just because there is no dating does not mean there is not a bit of kink.
Slade is smoking hot physique competitor who works with Faith in the gym. Not only is Slade a co-worker, he is Faith's only friend, and a kin of the kink. He has always willingly followed Faith’s conditions... that is until tattooed trainer Ty enters their lives throwing all that Faith has created into a tailspin. When Slade sees Faith falling for Ty's seduction, he decides to refuse Faith's rules and introduce her to his.
With her normalcy crumbling around her, Faith is slammed by the carnal and emotional enticement of both men. Can they make their triad of passion work or will Faith’s past come back to decimate any spark of hope for love that she ever had?
Warning: This book is fictional and depicts acts of violence, graphic sex, including BDSM, M/F/M menage circumstances, and oodles of kink. This book is recommended for mature audiences (21 and over) who are not offended by scenarios such as these.

There are a few authors I plan to see in August and buy some books from. It is a local book event not far from where I live and I go every year. Clinton Book Fest in Clinton IA.  I love seeing the few authors I know and getting to meet other authors there. Plus the kids love going to their huge library sale and getting some books of their own.

the first book is 

Don't Know Jack (Secret Agent Series) by [Manemann, Amy]
Don't Know Jack

Amy Manemann's Don't Know Jack. Another book I just loved. This is a romantic suspense. Special Agent Jack Hamlin is just scrumptious. I think this was the first book of Amy's I read and had me hooked on her books. Worth the change to pick up and try out a new author. 

book description:


Special Agent Jack Hamlin is a man who lives by a code. Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity. Three words symbolizing the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and three words hardwired in Jack’s indelible brain. Jack’s a doer and a risk taker who isn’t afraid to do whatever it takes in the field to bring criminals to justice. That is until his latest assignment brings him face to face with Kate Monroe. One look into her mesmerizing green eyes and Jack has a hard time determining if he’d rather interrogate the beautiful redhead, or take her to bed first.

After Kate Monroe’s silent partner cleans out their business account and disappears in the middle of the night, she’s left to pick up the pieces and fend off the vultures circling her front door, including a baking conglomerate determined to buy Kate’s prized, award winning recipe at all cost. When hunky newcomer Jack Hamlin moves into town, Kate’s life becomes even more complicated by a dimpled grin that sends her heart into overdrive. Jack’s too hot for words, but the timing of his appearance drives Kate’s suspicions that he’s there for more than just putting down roots.

Danger, white hot romance, and stress baking ensue as Kate is swept into Jack’s dangerous world—and Jack's loyalties and training are put to the test when his cover is blown, and Kate’s life is on the line. With Kate caught in the crossfire, it would seem the masterminds are one step ahead of the game. But when push comes to shove, if they think this special agent is down and out, then they don’t know jack.

The other book I plan to get is 

Ballistic: Icarus Series, Book Two by [Michaels, Aria]
Ballistic

Aria Michaels Ballistic. It is book 2 in her Icarius series. I have read book 1 and have book 2 on my kindle but I just want that pretty paperback of hers on my shelf! 

book description:

It's been three days since Solar Storm Icarus silenced the world...three days since the GRS virus wiped out most of humanity and started changing the few who remained. Liv and the others made it through the initial wave, but they've lost a lot along the way and the journey to Salvation is far from over. A rogue military organization has taken hold of the area and they possess a weapon that could change everything. 

When Liv finds out her brother and the other refugees are being held captive at Camp Seco, she will risk everything to get him back. As the group embarks upon a dangerous rescue mission, a rival band of survivors threatens their safety and a new storm gathers overhead. The virus has spread and the infected are being drawn together. What's worse, the beast that lurks inside of Liv is growing stronger and more difficult to control. But Liv has a promise to keep--and her little brother is running out of time. 


Will Liv be able to harness her strength to save her brother and the hundreds of other innocents beyond the walls of Camp Seco, or will she let the monster out and put them all at risk?
