We’re celebrating the little guys (well, gals, tbh) this episode as we discuss your favorite indie authors.
Before that, we talk some book news. People keep coming for libraries, and this time it was in the dumbest way possible. Rare Bird is being sued by Natasha Tynes for $13 MILLION and their lawyer found time in his day to send this response. And finally, The Atlantic came for the Goodreads Challenge.
Thanks to everyone who replied to our #BCLChat. Check out the authors and books we discussed below:
- Alexandra Warren
- Baggage Claim: “I don’t need to know your name. I know your spirit. I’m more concerned with that.” Ryan and Will: Two strangers with instant chemistry on an adventure fueled by a fiery connection neither can contain. But not everything is as it seems. Or is it?
- Nicole Falls
- A Natural Transition: Nyema Landry is more interested in her flourishing career as a DJ than settling down. Langston Goode is a man on the rise with his eyes on the prize, ready to finally lay his claim on Nyema’s heart. Since their first meeting, Nyema and Langston had been at odds, and they were perfectly fine with that arrangement … until the undeniable current of desire that crackled between them was no longer avoidable.
- Jacinta Howard
- Happiness in Jersey: (First book in her Prototype series) The only thing in Jersey Kincaid’s world that she has time for are keeping her grades up so that she doesn’t lose her scholarship to South Texas University, playing the bass in her band, The Prototype, and satisfying her coffee addiction. Oh, and the occasional random hook-up she indulges in to pass the time. When Jersey meets Isaiah “Zay” Broussard with his soulful gray eyes, quick wit and easy charm, she’s determined to remain aloof. She doesn’t have time to get sidetracked by fleeting fantasies, even if she does feel an unexplainable connection to Zay she’s never experienced before.
- Love Belvin
- The Rhythm of Blues: (First book in her Love in Rhythm & Blues series) Ragee is a successful R&B singer, music composer, and actor who shot to fame and celebrity at rocketing speed. But he has an unshakable stigma attached to his stardom that won’t seem to go away. Wynter Blue thought she was taking control of her world the day she up and quit her job. Little did she know, the day she walked out of her job was the very one she’d run into his shroud of smoke. Wynter questions if she can handle Ragee’s darkness while trying to bring him into the light of truth.
