Best Books of 2017 – So Far

Now, y’all know I had a bad couple months of reading this year; however, I do still have some of the Best Books of 2017 – so far on my radar.

They’re all five-star reads! I cannot wait to see what the last half of 2017 holds for me in books.

Best Books of 2017 – So Far

 Mercy by Natalie Bennett

Ahh! A 5-star read. This will easily be in my Top Five Books of 2017 at the end of the year.

This is not for the faint of heart, that’s for sure. Check out the blurb below.

Everyone knows the story where the beautiful girl gets taken by a monster.

The one where the monster ends up being some poor tortured soul with a fucked up past.

Love prevails, and then they live happily ever fucking after.

Well, this is my story and it isn’t a fairytale. 

I loved my monster too.

But that was before he took me. 

My reality is dark. 

His demons are darker. 


 King’s Captive by Amber Bardan

Just in case I haven’t emphasized it enough, Amber Bardan is seriously one of my all-time favorite authors. It all started with Didn’t I Warn You and it has yet to end. This is another example of a 5-star read!


For three years, I’ve belonged to Julius King.

Some people would think being stuck on a private island is heaven, but this is my hell.
Because I’m not here as a guest. Not even close. I’m a prisoner. I’m his.

Julius King. Powerful. Wealthy. Dangerous.

There are parts of me he wants that I can’t give him. When he looks at me, there are times I swear he sees someone else. And the scary part is that sometimes, when he touches me, I think he may be someone else, too.

Though my body might be tempted, and he might control everything else, I can’t let him have any piece of my heart. I won’t. But every day, the fight gets harder, and Julius manages to slip past my defenses in the most unexpected ways.

I have to find out the truth about Julius King. Even if it destroys me.


 His Temptation by Amber Bardan

This one is a short story in a series of stories by various authors. I loved it!


Dog walking was supposed to be Katie’s easy third job.

When she answered the ad, she had no idea she’d be working for Clay “The Grinch” Colson—recently retired baseball superstar. He’s every bit as intimidating as the scowl he’s famous for, and Katie believes the rumors she’s heard about how mean he is are true—until she sees him with his overgrown, crazy Boxer, Dixie.

Lucky Katie gets completely unexpected, front-row seats to a side of Clay the tabloids never captured. Every. Single. Morning. And the more she’s exposed to his gruff affection, the more she can’t help thinking there’s so much hiding behind that scowl… The more she wonders what she’d have to do to have him call her his good girl.

Every morning, the sexiest woman he’s ever seen comes to his house and calls him Daddy. Sure, she’s his dog walker, but that doesn’t mean she has the right to sashay into his world every morning, plant that saucy little gaze on him, and say, “Good morning, Daddy.”

Now that’s all he can think about—being her very dirty daddy.

 Filthy Doctor by Amy Brent

Filthy Doctor is the first book I read by Amy Brent. It won’t be my last! I enjoy her writing style and was instantly immersed into the book.


The doctor will see you now… EVERY INCH of you.

I’m a world-renowned cardiologist, but breaking hearts is what I do best. 
Women line up for a turn between my Egyptian cotton sheets, making it difficult for me to limit my services to just one. 
Well, you can’t really blame them. 
Because I work hard, REALLY HARD!

With these movie star looks and hands that can work magic – both in the clinic and in the bed, I can make a woman come by just looking at her. 
And who wouldn’t care about a bank account almost as sizeable as the surgical instrument between my legs. Life seems to be awesome. 

And then Lucy walks back into my world. 
We were HOT lovers in high school – and I can remember the night I took her V card. 
Now she’s back, as the producer of my TV show. 
My brain tells me to stop.
But one look into her sultry blue eyes and I wanna go DEEP! 
I’ve learned so many new talents since our last night together, 
That I am willing to teach her. 
I’m so ready to be her FILTHY DOCTOR. 

Her delicious curves tempt me to take her.
I want to own that voluptuous body. 
But doing so would mean risking her career and breaking my biggest rule: Never fall in love. 

 Confessions of a Nerdoholic by Savannah Blevins.

The last 5-star read I’ll show you guys. Funny enough, it is the first 5-star read of 2017! I love this book so much! It is just so cute and adorable.


Eloise Duncan has a type. Skinny jeans and black rimmed glasses. She’s a nerdoholic, and she isn’t ashamed…

Eloise isn’t the party all night, keg stand kind of college girl. She works part-time at the Sugar Cube bakery, and keeps her nose in a book. Even with her above par study habits, she still manages to have a failing anatomy grade at mid-term. To cheer herself up, she stops by the library a few hours a week to check out Oliver Edwards, the guy of her dreams who doesn’t realize she exists. At least, not yet. 

Eloise has a plan. No guy, even nerds, can resist a good cupcake, and Eloise makes the best cupcakes on earth…

She leaves one of her famous strawberry cheesecake cupcakes on top of Oliver’s chemistry book. It’s enough to brighten her mood, but not enough to bring her grade up. When she accidentally hits Oliver in the crotch with her anatomy book, it turns out Oliver isn’t just hot, he’s also nice and forgiving. He offers to tutor Eloise in exchange for an endless supply of sugary treats.

It’s a daydream come true, but if Eloise doesn’t pass anatomy, her father will jerk her out of school…

Her father never wanted her to go to Maryland. He wants her back on the west coast, following in his footsteps at Pepperdine. He’ll use her bad grade to bring her home. 

Will Eloise be able to tame her nerd lust long enough to make the grade she needs to pass her class, or will she have to leave her new love behind in…

Confessions of a Nerdoholic?
