PIFY: April Update and May picks!

The theme for April's PIFY is: One of Lindsay/Nikki's Favorite books! 

So you KNOW that they'll have a billion options and have a hard time picking!!!

Nikki's Pick for April: Vengeance by 

26095720Her scars ran so deep, her soul had been severed in two. Michelene had killed and run—but not far enough, or fast enough. 

They’d found her. 

Azriel had but one rule. No attachments. This rule had kept him alive. He’d lived by it—until her. 

She’d found her savior in a man whose past was even darker than her own and whose soul held shadows of that dark. He made her body explode in ways she’d never imagined possible and gave her heart something she’d long given up... hope. 

Michelene was his saving grace. The only thing which kept the darkness from consuming him. She was his to protect and cherish. 

God help anyone who challenged that--because Vengeance would be his. 

Nikki's reason: I'm choosing this book because A) it is super freaking sexy. B)it has a psycho possessive (in the best ways) hero who is all about vengeance and doesn't mind a little murder to make sure his lady love is safe, and I know how that can be right up your alley ;) Plus I really loved it!

Lindsay: So, this wasn't a horrible read. I wasn't sure what to expect and I'll admit that even with the hot guy on the cover, the book didn't scream at me. But it ended up being a good book. It wasn't a horrible choice ;) 

Well, I'm glad you didn't hate it lol

LOL. Well, I didn't. But you know me, I had issues. Not bad issues, but I just never felt like I REALLY got to know Azriel, and that bothered me because I wanted to know more. 

That's an understandable issue. If I remember correctly, I felt the same. I really liked his character and I wanted the book to delve deeper into who he was and where he came from.

Totally agree with you. But I have to say that I was completely intrigued by Michelene’s brother Pierre. For me, he was a guy I wanted more of…I want to see him run his family’s business, make it his own and find a HEA…while exuding alphaness and distributing vengeance on behalf of his lady love who is in trouble of her own. So I seriously hope the author writes him a book! 
Yes! He was definitely a side character that stole the spotlight! I want a book for him too!
Any hope of the author writing one for you? I figured you'd know because you're the professional author stalker! ;) 
Lol! Um... I have to say I haven't had my stalker cape on too much lately so... Not sure. I'll get on that though ;)

Well get back to it woman! 
 LMAO. Aye Aye Captain

Lindsay's Pick: A Humble Heart (Hollywood Hearts #1) by 

18892986After wasting too many years on the wrong guy, Dana frees herself and her two children to live her dream.When she's forced to deal with paparazzi, offers from porn companies, magazines, Hollywood and crazed fans Dana does everything she can to keep it together for her kids. She never dreamed she'd catch the eye of the most sought after bachelor in the world. Things like that just didn't happen to women like her, or did they?

Having a life? What the hell was that? Edward couldn't remember what it felt like to live his own life without someone watching his every move. Thanks to the paparazzi and the internet nothing in his life was sacred. Out of desperation to keep some semblance of a life he stops living his own. His family and work are all he has left until he's made an offer he simply can't resist. Working with the famous author forces him to open his heart and take a chance. Winning the heart of the woman he loves while the world watches is anything but easy, but he never thought it would be dangerous. His only hope is that they get through it together.....and alive.

Lindsay's reason: Ok, I read this forever ago and I absolutely loved it! I know Nikki loves R.L. Mathewson's books, but she keeps ignoring me when I say this book is BEYOND AWESOME!!! So when I had the chance to pick it for a PIFY, I went for it!

Nikki's Rating:   (you can find Nikki's review here)

Typically, I shy away from famous characters. I don't really have an explanation, I just don't dig em. This book has an actor and a famous author in it and I'll be honest, I was nervous. However, it turned out that was pointless because the book was great!

Lol. Is it horrible that I want to say told you so!

Lol, you wouldn't be you if you didn't ;) 

Lol. Hey! But seriously, I'm glad you loved it! I knew you would. Even though it's a famous couple/an actor, it was a typical RL Mathewson book and I know how much you love her stuff! 

Yes, you're right! I did love it and I'm really glad you chose it. Hey, maybe there's hope for me yet ;)

LOL. I'll keep working on you, so there's definitely hope! ;) 

LMAO. Ok so what is up for May?

Well, our topic is: Something out of our comfort zone. 
Oh no! I Can't Look! emoticon Just kidding! Sock it to me!

Lindsay's Pick: Fitzwilliam Darcy, Rock Star by 

"Darcy's as hot as he is talented..."

Fast music, powerful beats, and wild reputations-on 
and off stage-have made virtuoso guitarist Fitzwilliam Darcy's band into rock's newest bad boys. But they've lost their latest opening act, and their red-hot summer tour is on the fast track to disaster. Now Darcy and bandmates Charles Bingley and Richard Fitzwilliam are about to meet their match...

"But she's about to rock his world..."

Enter Elizabeth Bennet, fiercely independent star of girl-band Long Borne Suffering. Elizabeth, her sister Jane, and friend Charlotte Lucas have talent to spare and jump at the opening band slot. Elizabeth is sure she's seen the worst the music industry has to offer. But as the days and nights heat up, it becomes clear that everyone is in for a summer to remember.

Lindsay's reason: Ok, so I know you're not a fan of rock stars but this book is a) one of my favorites, b) totally awesome and c) we've been talking about it for ages and I really think you'll love it! 

Nikki's Pick: 
 Undeniable by Alison Kent

13516112 There was a time when Crow Hill, Texas’s notorious Dalton Gang ran wild. Now, as owners of the Dalton Ranch, their partnership in the rundown operation leaves little time for raising hell—except for the right women who can turn on the heat…

It’s been sixteen years since Dax Campbell set foot in Crow Hill—and sixteen years since Arwen Poole had a crush on him in high school. Unfortunately, setting her sights on this irresistible man again has stirred up a lot of unfulfilled desires in Arwen. A few nights in bed with Dax should get him out of her system once and for all. That’s all she wants. And for now, that’s all she needs.

But Dax is looking for something deeper in a woman. So they agree to an unconventional affair: for every no-strings sexual encounter Arwen craves, Dax gets to take her out for a night of romance. While both manage to hold up their end of the bargain, they’re growing closer than either of them can afford. Because Dax has a family secret that could drive him out of Crow Hill for good, and Arwen’s not letting him go without a fight…

Nikki's Reason: Well, I know you're not a fan of the cowboy trope, so that's the main reason. This book, however, is really good and there's sexy times galore! ;)
