My Top Books of 2023!

Hey, guys! It's that time of year again where I share my favourite books of the year! So, here is my list with my top books of 2023! I loved all of these books a lot! 

*All books are in no particular order!*

12. You'll Never Know I'm Here by Kiersten Modglin!

They tell the world what mysteries to read.
Soon, they’ll be caught up in one of their own.

When six book influencers take a weekend getaway to connect with their fellow creators, it’s meant to be a chance to relax, collaborate, and discuss all of the books they love.

But from the start, something’s clearly amiss. From the host’s mysterious absence and an unexpected guest to an odd occurrence in town and the strange and worrisome behavior of the neighbors, what starts out as an innocent and lively vacation quickly becomes a weekend filled with terror. And when one of the group members believes they see something horrifying at the house next door, their carefully laid plans begin to unravel.

Drawn into a mystery that runs far deeper and is more sinister than they could’ve imagined—and surrounded by those who refute their story—the group struggles to unearth the truth about the house and the couple next door before it’s too late.

As new questions and shocking revelations surface, the group must decide if they can trust each other—not only with their safety in the house, but with their lives entirely.

Readers’ worst nightmares come to life in this terrifying new thriller that tests the limits of friendship, explores the power of social media influence, digs into the depths of trust, and examines the desperate and dangerous lengths of obsession from million-copy bestselling author, Kiersten Modglin.

11. The Fallen [When the World Fell 01] by Elle Richards!

I should be happy to be one of the small percentage who made it through a zombie apocalypse—and I am. Most of the time. It's just... I'm the sole survivor of my family, and I have one friend left; my eighty-year-old neighbour, Haruto.

It's a lonely life. A dangerous life.

And my food supplies are running low.

I've lived in the city for a decade, long before the pandemic took everything from us, but it’s time to leave and search for a rural property with room for vegetable gardens and fruit trees, and space to invite others to join—if I can find more people like me who've hung onto old-world values in a new world where there are no systems or rules.

The problem? Haruto's unwell and unfit for travel, and it's too dangerous to spend long stretches of time outside. It's not just the dead with their vacant eyes and hungry mouths that I need to worry about. It's other humans, too.

There's a gang roaming the city; they're violent and unpredictable, and they intimidate me enough that I try to make myself invisible whenever I leave my apartment.

There's another man lurking around, too. He's been staying in the building opposite mine, and I've spent the past week tracking his movements. Although I've kept my distance from him so far, just being around him makes me feel safer outside and less lonely.

It's risky approaching other humans now, but Haruto isn't getting any better, and soon enough I'll be alone—completely alone for the first time in my life.

And I'm reaching the point now where desperation is pushing me to risk it all and bear the consequences.

10. Last Light by Claire Kent!

It only took four years for the world to fall apart.

Now the last member of my family has died, and I'm forced to travel across what's left of three states to find the only people I know left alive. To survive, I'll have to salvage food and supplies and try to avoid violent men who've learned they can take what they want by force. The only way I'm going to make it is by trusting Travis.

Travis used to fix my car, and now he's all I have left in the world. He's gruff and stoic and unfriendly, and I don't really know or like him. But he's all I have left. He'll keep me safe. We'll take care of each other. Until we reach what's left of our town and can finally let go of one another.

9. The Protector [Game of Chance 01] by Susan Stoker!

From New York Times bestselling author Susan Stoker comes a sizzling suspense about the romance that blossoms between two strangers during a snowstorm and the stalker who threatens them both.

Riggs “Chappy” Chapman didn’t expect to be disrupted at his remote cabin in the woods. But when a stray dog arrives on his porch, he winds up finding a stray woman, too, trudging through the snowstorm in search of shelter. His military days may be behind him, but Chappy is hardwired to protect her from the storm and whatever it is she’s running from.

Carlise Edwards didn’t expect her car to break down in the Maine wilderness. All she wants is to escape whoever is stalking her back home. There’s no way anyone’s going to find her and Chappy deep in the forest, especially not in dangerous weather. But she finds it hard to mind the circumstances when the company is this stimulating.

As the snowstorm rages, Chappy and Carlise find that, despite the cold, they can generate plenty of heat of their own…but there’s more than just natural dangers lurking in the woods.

8. Things We Hide From the Light [Knockemout 02] by Lucy Score!

Nash Morgan was always known as the good Morgan brother, with a smile and a wink for everyone. But now, this chief of police is recovering from being shot and his Southern charm has been overshadowed by panic attacks and nightmares. He feels like a broody shell of the man he once was. Nash isn’t about to let anyone in his life know he’s struggling. But his new next-door neighbor, smart and sexy Lina, sees his shadows. As a rule, she’s not a fan of physical contact unless she initiates it, but for some reason Nash’s touch is different. He feels it too. The physical connection between them is incendiary, grounding him and making her wonder if exploring it is worth the risk.

Too bad Lina’s got secrets of her own, and if Nash finds out the real reason she’s in town, he’ll never forgive her. Besides, she doesn’t do relationships. Ever. A hot, short-term fling with a local cop? Absolutely. Sign her up. A relationship with a man who expects her to plant roots? No freaking way. Once she gets what she’s after, she has no intention of sticking around. But Knockemout has a way of getting under people’s skin. And once Nash decides to make Lina his, he’s not about to be dissuaded…even if it means facing the danger that nearly killed him.

3. All the Little Raindrops by Mia Sheridan!

The chilling story of the abduction of two teenagers, their escape, and the dark secrets that, years later, bring them back to the scene of the crime.

It’s senior-year spring break, and Noelle Meyer and Evan Sinclair have been kidnapped. Neither knows why they were chosen, only that they share a tragic past: Evan’s father got away with killing Noelle’s mother, effectively ruining her family when the death was ruled an accident.

Despite the connection that should have made them enemies, the teens instead unite to face their other common denominator—their abductors. Noelle and Evan survive one sadistic circumstance after another, eventually making a harrowing escape. But every happy ending comes at a price…

Years later, Evan, now a private investigator, revisits the crime when he learns it may be ongoing. He reaches out to Noelle for help, and they discover that the answers lie with a man known only as the Collector. To close their case and solve the ones that followed, Noelle and Evan must unmask this mysterious spectator—the only man who knows enough secrets to take their captors down.

2. Heartsong Duet by Jennifer Hartmann!

Synopsis for book one!

Dear Diary,

There once was a girl with fireflies in her eyes and music in her soul.

(Remember her... she's important.)

She's the reason I panic-bought the little brick house on Maple Street; the one I lived next door to for eight magical years. Now that I'm back digging up floorboards and lost journals, I can’t stop thinking about the two people who grew up here.

You see, that girl was my best friend, and this house was once hers. She also had a big brother who was my everything before circumstance turned us into nothing more than memories.

That’s why I applied for a job at his auto shop—unprepared to discover that my new boss, Cal Bishop, is now gruff, built, and covered in tattoos.

I'm the sun to his overcast sky. The smile to his surly solitude.

A reminder of everything he longs to forget.

But my heart has a secret, and we’re running out of time to fix our torn pages.

Maybe the same girl who used to be the glue still holds the key to putting our pieces back together.

(See? I told you she was important.)

1. Captivate Me by Harmony West!


My best friend is missing, and everyone wants to know what happened to beautiful, perfect Noelle van Buren.

Except . . . I can’t seem to stay away.


When I wake up bound and gagged in someone’s basement, Beau Grayson is watching me. I’ve seen him on my college campus, but I barely know him. He’s beautiful, mysterious, and rumor has it, dangerous.

Now, he’s keeping me here, and I have no idea when I’ll get out. If I’ll survive this. Because, against every instinct, I’m falling for him.

But who could fall in love with their kidnapper?

Book Blitz & Giveaway: An Heir Made in Hawaii [Hot Winter Escapes 02] by Emmy Grayson!


   Awareness crackled over Nicholas’s skin as Anika stood up, her slim form clad in a billowing yellow silk top and beige slacks that hugged her legs. With her hair pulled into an updo, he could see every line of her face, the long slender curve of her neck. Her mouth twisted into a small but devilish smile as she accepted a microphone from a conference worker. Anticipation flowed through him.
   “You mention creating a one-of-a-kind experience for your guests by utilizing resources in the communities where your hotels exist, yes?”
   “That’s right.”
   “What happens when people in those communities don’t like what your hotel is doing?”
   He arched a brow in silent acknowledgment of the gauntlet she’d just thrown down.
   “An excellent question. Understandably, not everyone is a fan of a world-renowned resort opening its doors.” He added the slightest bit of emphasis to his words, savoring her narrowed eyes. “The biggest detractors are often other hotels concerned that we’ll take away business.”
   “Don’t you?”
   Some people in the audience stirred, surprised by the unknown woman’s audacity, but settled back down when Nicholas just smiled. God, she was glorious, standing there in sunshine yellow with lightning in her eyes.
   “While it’s inevitable that there will be some competition, the Hotel Lassard prides itself on community relations. That includes maintaining a team that travels ahead to any site prior to the beginning of construction and liaises with local hotel owners and managers. We strive to collaborate with them as much as possible.”
   “But what do you do when the interests of your hotel conflict with someone in the community? What then?”
   If it had been just the two of them, he would have stood and applauded. She had him right where she wanted him, on the chopping block in front of hundreds of people. Her boldness excited him. Her daring impressed him.
   And that beautifully haughty smile on her face made him want to pull the pins from her hair, tangle his fingers in the silky threads and kiss her senseless.
   “It rarely happens. But in the event it does, we explore every possible avenue for collaboration. Not only is it not in our brand’s interest to make enemies, but if we don’t believe something is the right thing to do, we don’t do it. You might argue,” he continued as she parted her lips to do just that, “that we only do the right thing because the public is watching. And yes, especially in today’s media-focused environment, the public is always watching. But we also do the right thing because it’s the right thing.”
   “And what if the right thing is walking away?”
   Challenge vibrated in her voice. The rest of the ballroom fell away as they stared at each other, two people at odds in every way except for the passion that had just flared from a simmer into a blazing inferno.
   “The professional in me acknowledges that sometimes the right thing to do is walk away. But personally,” he added with a wicked grin, “I don’t lose.”

Tough negotiations turn to tempestuous nights in this surprise-baby romance by Emmy Grayson.

Claiming his baby…
after one hot Hawaiian night!

Anika Pierce refuses to have her family hotel swallowed into tycoon Nicholas Lassard’s property portfolio, despite his offers. Their heated negotiations in Hawaii lead them to his penthouse. One electrifying encounter won’t change Anika’s mind…but discovering she’s pregnant might!

Nicholas never planned to be a father. Yet, on hearing Anika’s bombshell, he vows to give his child the happy upbringing he never had—which means winning over the woman who challenges him at every turn. Except to do that, he must admit that their connection runs far deeper than their scorching passion…

Book Blitz & Giveaway: The Sweetest Obsession [Dark Hearts of Redhaven 02] by Nicole Snow!


   All of me freezes as I meet his eyes, stare at him, stare into Grant, into that quiet solemness and raging gruffness that hides a heart so true.
   He never stopped.
   He really never stopped looking for my brother all this time.
   He still thinks there’s a chance he’s alive, even if deep down, that seems completely ludicrous. The hope was starved out of me without anyone finding a single clue.
   “You... you asshole,” I strangle out. My mouth moves automatically. I don’t know what I’m saying, why I’m saying it, or why my eyes are welling up and I just can’t take anymore. “You overly loyal giant donkey. You... you...”
   There’s a moment.
   A crack in reality when those hard eyes soften.
   All those years I spent when we were young, wishing he’d show some emotion.
   Something plain and simple and honest.
   Something easy, without having to turn myself into a human Grant decoder to understand his growls and loud silences.
   Now, he finally gives me what I’m aching for with real concern flashing across his face, the way he leans into me, staring down like he’s afraid he’s broken me somehow.
   “Ophelia, fuck,” he says softly. “I won’t see you hurt.”
   No, but he will see me speechless tonight.
   If I ever speak again, I’ll tell him how wonderfully dumb he’s being.
   But right now, he’s just a giant blur past the tears.
   Scalding, stupid, overwhelmed tears I don’t want to cry, but I just can’t take another bee sting to the heart.
   I can’t take more confusion, more things to fear.
   Holy hell, I don’t want to think about it anymore.
   Because if I’m thinking, that means I won’t do what I’m doing right now.
   I won’t be laying my fingers on Grant’s face, my fingers weaving through the thick, grey-shot bristle of his bearish brown beard.
   Pulling him closer, even as his eyes widen.
   I definitely won’t be kissing him.
   Kissing. Him.
   I don’t know what comes over me.
   It’s too instant, too impulsive, too reckless.
   Too impossible to be denied.
   And now that I’ve started I can’t stop, and I can taste years of pent-up emotion in the salt between our lips as I crush my mouth to his and beg.
   Don’t hurt me right now, Grant. I can’t stand another ounce of pain and disappointment.
   Just give.
   Give me the fire in that growl, the nip of your teeth, the sweet, sweet rush that makes me tingle.
   I’m actually shaking for my longest obsession.
   No surprise, the man is a human earthquake when his lips attack mine.
   Or maybe it’s just the vibration, the shock and awe steaming out of him, tangled up in this sudden hunger I can feel.
   Grant goes still for just a second.
   The shock radiates through both of us in hot waves so intense they leave me dizzy.
   I brace, wait for it, fully expecting the imminent stab of hurt where he sternly pushes me away and reminds me I’ll always be the kid sister.
   Nothing but Butterfly.
   Not anyone he could ever see as romantic or sexy or remotely desirable.
   ...only he doesn’t.
   Instead, he wraps his huge arm tight around my waist, possessively jerking me forward, almost off the chair.
   My stomach leaps and twists.
   Instead of tearing his mouth off mine, he goes all in.
   Grant Faircross ravages me with the sudden intensity of a kiss that crashes over me like lightning splitting the night.

Falling for the best thing that never happened brings sweet mayhem in this steamy, gripping, and heartfelt small-town grumpy-sunshine standalone romance by Wall Street Journal bestseller Nicole Snow.

My brother’s best friend owned my heart until the day he drenched it in kerosene and burned it down.
Grant flipping Faircross is so not the reason I’m coming home.
I don’t care if he’s gotten bigger, meaner, and grumpy enough to flash freeze the sun.
So what if he’s up in my business the second I arrive?

I’m smarter now.
I’m only back in Redhaven for my sick mother and to talk some sense into my sister before she marries a toad.
Grant ran me off once and I’m not running back.
I can handle the drama, the messy secrets, and an unexpected stalker just fine.

…or maybe not so fine.
When Prince Anti-Charming charges in to protect me, it’s kinda hard to say no.
When I find out he’s a single dad with a heart bigger than a prune, it gets harder.
And when his lips storm mine with a growl that says “stay,” oh God.

Are we really doing this again?
Especially when an old tragedy resurfaces with hard truths, stinging tears, and one brutal question.
Will our sweetest obsession finally deliver us or destroy us forever?

Author bio:

I was born and raised in Buffalo, New York until our family moved around to four different states. Currently reside in Ohio with my husband Steven of fourteen years. No children or fur babies. I have three siblings: a sister who will go to the earth and moon for you, an older brother who passed away unexpectedly in 2019, and a younger brother who loves with his whole heart. I am also a proud auntie to a teenage niece and nephew.

My dream was to become a writer someday, but real life got in the way. I started writing in my journal at an early age. Over time, the words in the pages formed into poetry. Reading and writing is my way of “escaping reality.” Real life sucks sometimes and getting lost in a good book helps make it less sucky.

My favorite genre is romance which includes young adult, contemporary, sports, and fantasy.

When I am not reading or writing, you will find me in the kitchen baking a crap load of sugar that I do not need or binging on the next series on Netflix, movies (huge superhero fanatic) reading my Kindle at all hours of the night, or watching Tik Tok videos. Thank you for giving my books a chance. I hope you will fall in love with the characters as much as I had fun writing them.

Book Blitz & Giveaway: Shadow’s Raven [Crossing Daggers 02] by C.A. Worley!


   “So, Raven, what in the hell did you do to piss off the Fae Queen?”
   Wow. Lyric was more blunt than my father, and that was saying a lot. Steeling myself, I inhaled, ready to give them my story. Most of it, at least.
   The doors crashed open, cracking loudly against the stone walls. In a nanosecond I was on my feet, my chair overturned behind me.
   The intruder stalked across the threshold. His wild eyes searched, constricting when they found mine. Casimir halted, a herculean tower of lean masculinity demanding my attention.
   And, oh, did he have it!
   Outwardly I was as cold and smooth as granite. Inside I was a live volcano, reacting to the force of his remarkable bearing. Surely he was descended directly from the gods of lust.
   The fabric of his black shirt hugged him tight. I could see almost every dip and valley of his chiseled frame—a frame that was expanding and contracting like a runner who’d just finished a race.
   I’d known he was attractive when I’d seen him lying on the floor earlier, even with the blood. Seeing him animated, feeling his dominant presence and palpable virility, set me afire.
   The low growl in his chest was one of possession. He tugged on the bond and the spell sputtered. It held but felt somewhat unstable.
   Adrenaline flooded my system and heat grew between my legs. If he kept up that sound, he might be able to convince me to rut like an animal with him right here on the stone floor.
   Even muted, the cord connecting us was an overwhelming lure. Or was it simply him?

After months of torture for steadfastly refusing Queen Sersha’s wicked demands, Raven realizes the price of her defiance is about to become more than she can afford. Luckily, her mercenary father comes to the rescue.

For nearly half a year, Casimir has been tormented by dreams filled with ominous ravens hovering over a dark-haired female, one who radiates an irresistible allure. When an old ally arrives in the Shadowlands seeking asylum for his daughter, Cas is struck by the realization that this damsel is none other than the vexing figure from his nightly visions.

In a single electrifying moment, Cas is certain that Raven is his fated mate and embarks on a relentless pursuit to make her his. The two ignite a blaze of passion that defies comprehension, grappling with both their physical desires and profound emotions.

As their pasts collide in the present, it’s not only their future, but the future of the Faelands, hanging in the balance. Choices are made, lives irrevocably altered, and the remorseless hand of Fate exerts its influence.

C.A. currently resides in the Midwest, but was born and raised in the South. She spends her days working from home and her evenings are spent shuttling her kids to and fro. Her dinners are subpar, but she makes a mean dessert.

When she's tired of living her sons' travel sports schedules, C.A. enjoys a glass (or four) of wine. She needs the liquid courage to click the publish button for her fantasy romance novels.

Her motto is, "Be Brave," and she tries to live it every day. It takes a healthy dose of courage to get through this thing we call life.

Release Blitz: Savage Heart [Savage Angels MC 11] by Kathleen Kelly!

My heart has only ever belonged to one woman.

Lore left me years ago. Vowed never to return to Tourmaline.

Now, here she is. Mad as hell, spitting venom at anyone who gets too close.

Not sure why I never noticed it before, but Lore and Tobias have the same eyes. As he fights for his life, she stands guard, keeping me and anyone else connected to the Savage Angels away from him.

But there’s something Lore doesn’t know.

She still possesses my savage heart, and I’m prepared to go to extraordinary lengths to safeguard her and all she cherishes.

Even if it means relinquishing her forever.
