  1. I recently read Dirty Thoughts and Dirty Talk and OMG i loved both! I cannot wait to start with Dirty Deeds! I love Brent the most so far. I also love Asher. That kid made me laugh a lot in Dirty Thoughts. My topic today is New Adult with one or two adult titles :)

    1. My personal favorite was the first one, but I liked the second one okay! The third one and I didn't really agree BUT I love Erickson nonetheless!

    2. I haven't read the last book so I can't say anything about it but I'll lower my expectations a bit :) And I just loved Brent!

    3. Most people loved Dirty Deeds! I think, in terms of Dirty Talk, I LOVED Brent, but I had issues with Ivy. :/ It was good nonetheless!

  2. I've only read the two Megan Erickson books from both your lists (cheater!) but they were on my list too!

  4. Yay! This comes at a perfect time. I just finished The Girl with All the Gifts and am looking for something lighter to read. Perhaps The Shattered Court, but they all look yummy. Thanks, Alyssa!

    1. I highly recommend The Shattered Court - fantasy romance, and a lovely pairing!

      You're very welcome. :)

  5. I've read some of those authors just not these particular books and loved them. I do have a few of these on the wish list. I can't imagine trying to make a favorites list and reducing it to under ten. Good job!

    1. I couldn't do just ten! Under twenty worked for me. ;D Thank you, Sophia!

  9. Ah, yay! The Adult (romance) list! haha. I remember loving the hero of the Highlander Takes a Bride. And of course When a Scot!! That whole book ❤

    Sweetest Scoundrel was a lovely read, too! And I liked Cold-Hearted Rake, but I think I'm more excited for Helen and Winterborne than I was for Kathleen and Devon, haha.

    Fantastic list, I'll definitely have to check out a few of them!

    1. Adult romance, as says the title! I have a few adult fiction novels that I loved, but these are all adult romance. I hope you enjoy some of these, Cyn! :)

      Delete
  10. Ohh love your list! I read erotica but only from select authors *wink

    I also loved When a Scot Ties the Knot but I still have Cold-Hearted Rake on hold. I am having a lot of problems with this. And missing the old Lisa Kleypas charm :(

    1. I must agree, SELECT authors only! Some forms of erotica, I just can't do!

      I had a few issues with Cold-Hearted Rake as I was reading, but by the time I got to the end, I LOVED it! It was my first LK historical romance *ducks and hides* but it was awesome, in my opinion. :)

      Delete
    2. Oh no! QUICK! Read LK's old HR series. There are sooo good!

      Delete
    3. I plan on reading her Wallflower (?) series, it's one that many people have recommended specifically! :D

      Delete
    4. Yes! My fave is the first one, Secrets of a Summer Night but the others equally amazing. :D

      Delete
    5. Sounds good! A marathon might be in order. ;)

    1. I personally recommend The Shattered Court! Not *as* steamy as some of these other ones, and also with a great fantasy backdrop and lovable characters!

  18. You know I read four of these (and loved them) because of you, right? It seems I still have to check a few more! I tend to go for the historical/fantasy romances instead of contemporary so that might be why.
