Top Ten Tuesday: Books That I Want More Of!
Today's Top 10 Tuesday are books that I've read that makes me what more of, it might be because of the characters, the plot, the story, the premise, the genre. Insert Ariel gif here saying "I want more".
Him Series by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy
WesMie. To those who know and read Him and Us, know Jamie Callahan and Ryan Westley, they also know you can't just get enough of these two. They were tight childhood friends, who became famous hockey athletes on their own right, found their way to each other again and got a chance of their HEA. It's such a beautiful story and I wish there was more.
Covert Affairs by Valerie Vaughn
I once asked in a Facebook book rec group for a recommendation. I was looking for a book with characters in law enforcement like Criminal Minds' Behavioral Analysis Unit Special Agents Derek Morgan and Spencer Reid, but instead of their bromance, I want them having romance. I want geek/protector vibes but the geek isn't helpless, but also a badass. The first book was recommended and I love every minute of it. I was thrilled there was a second book. Now, I'm wishing there would be more of Syler and Arthur.
Declan - Heart of a Tiger by J.R. Loveless
So, I know this one is a start of a brand new series. Declan's book is not one easy shifter fantasy read. His fated mate, Sean, went through some serious traumatic ordeal. What I enjoyed most about this book was the journey of healing and of found family established in the most horrible circumstance. I want more of their story, of the characters and I'm patiently waiting for more.
The Happy List by Briar Prescott
I LOVE this book. It's about two guys who are the best of friends. Kai is openly gay and secretly pining for years and Grey is "straight" but had some self journey and self discovery. What I love about this book is that there's nothing tragic, dramatic and the MCs are good people, there was no unnecessary angst and the story got me laughing out loud, swooning and just made me really happy. I need more feel-good books like this one. Briar Prescott has this signature style of feel-good books, just like Project Hero.
Death and Destruction series by Patricia Logan
Jarrett and Thayne are one of my favorite couple. Patricia is one of my favorite authors. She's also a wonderful person and I'm blessed to call her my friend. I thought Jarrett and Thayne's story was all wrapped up, but I was so thrilled when Patricia gave us another book to read about Jarrett and Thayne's shenanigans (mostly Jarrett) with the latest addition of Fire and Ice. This series is action and mystery packed. There cases are complex and the characters are endearing. I just can't help but want more.
San Amaro Investigations by Kai Butler
Another urban fantasy that caught my attention! I really enjoyed this one. The world building is epic! It's fae, urban setting but there's more, like witches and warlocks and vampires and magic. The second book is coming out soon. I can't wait for more adventure!
The Dichotomy of Angels by N.R. Walker
N.R. Walker is one of those authors that's an auto buy and auto read for me. This book is unique, a standalone and when it ended, I wish there was more. Angels in corporate setting, twin flames, falling in love and second chances. It's amazing.
Zero Hour series by Aimee Nicole Walker
Man, I love this series. I wish there was more of Locke and Key. It was an enemies to lovers, reluctant partners relationship. The mystery in the overarching plot kept me intrigued. There's a spin off, but I haven't started on those yet because I'm still to attached to Locke and Key. The audiobooks were okay, I didn't particularly care for the narrator but I love the books so much, I still listened.
Harrisburg Raiders series by RJ Scott and VL Locey
Another hockey series that I devoured. I specially love Tennant and Jared's relationship and how that came to be. I love reading about their HEA. I love reading about the teammates as well and their own HEAs. I want more of Tennant and Jared though. There are spin offs of this series which I need to catch up with. I just want more Tennant and Jared centered stories.
Home and Away by Samantha Wayland
I love listening to the audiobook version of this one. I love how it ended but it felt like it ended too soon and I want to know more! How are Oliver and Christian and how's Rupert and Callum doing? Did they have their royal-ish wedding? So many questions. I need more of them.
I'm sure I can list more of the books that I want more of. There's quite many to list! But these will do for now.
Do you have any books you wish you can have more of?
