  1. Unbuttoning the CEO Unbuttoning the CEO by Mia Sosa is 99c! This contemporary romance has a bit of a taboo relationship element. However, I’m skeptical about the hero and his redemption arc. Reckless driving is no joke. This is also part of the Forever Yours digital imprint, so it’s a little on the shorter side at less than 300 pages. WHO SAYS YOU CAN’T MIX BUSINESS WITH PLEASURE? As the CEO of a large tech company and a semi-reformed bad boy, Ethan Hill is used to calling the shots. But
  2. TW: child abuse, drug abuse, addiction and recovery Fans of Jane Austen’s novel Pride and Prejudice might recall meeting Anne de Bourgh for a hot minute and also hearing her referred to incessantly by her domineering mother, Lady Catherine. The Heiress tells Anne’s story from her point of view, beginning in early childhood and extending through the entirety of her life. This book was not what I expected, but I loved it once I adjusted to its tone. While The Heiress contains a romance, it is less about romance and much more about the search of the protagonist for autonomy and purpose in her li
  3. All In RECOMMENDED: All In by Simona Ahrnstedt is $1.99! Redheadedgirl gave the book an A: I felt like this was full of Shakespearean drama, and scheming families, and hot sex, and gorgeous clothes, but also some important things to say about how the world is functioning. There’s a lot going on, though, and the ending a tad rushed. In the cutthroat world of Sweden’s financial elite, no one knows that better than corporate raider David Hammar. Ruthless. Notorious. Unstoppable. He’s out to
  4. A- Outlawed by Anna North January 5, 2021 · Bloomsbury Publishing TW/CW for the book and this review: discussions of infertility, death in childbirth. Have you ever thought to yourself, “I wish I could read a Western that has a queer girl gang”? Well, guess what? I have great news. While I don’t typically read Westerns, I was drawn in by the blurb for Outlawed: The day of her wedding, 17 year old Ada’s life looks good; she loves her

  6. Hot and Badgered Hot and Badgered by Shelly Laurenston is $1.99! This is the first book in the Honey Badger Chronicles. Sarah read this one and gave it a B grade: Among my favorite things about Laurenston’s writing is how very affirming and inspiring and a whole lot of fun it is, because angry, fearless women make room for themselves, they get shit done, and they’re the heroines. More honey badgers, please. It’s not every day that a beautiful naked woman falls out of the sky and lands fac
  7. A | BN | K | ABSometimes I’m fortunate enough to do an interview with an author I’ve never met, but with whom there’s an instant connection. That happened for Amanda and me last year when we interviewed Sarah J. Maas in Episode 395.. And now, Sarah J. Mass is back, nearly one year later to the date, to talk about her new book, A Court of Silver Flames, and about sexytimes, the magic romance house, rage, mental health, and re-reading books through the pandemic. There are so many little love letters to romance in A Court of Silver Flames, so of course we talk about the most lovely parts of being
  8. The Brass Queen The Brass Queen by Elizabeth Chatsworth is 99c! I mentioned this on a recent Hide Your Wallet because I was very interested in the heroine. I haven’t picked it up yet, but for less than a $1, you can bet it’s going on my Kindle as soon as possible. She knows a liar when she sees one. He knows a fraud when he meets one. In a steam-powered world, Miss Constance Haltwhistle is the last in a line of blue-blooded rogues. Selling firearms under her alias, the “Brass Queen,” she
  9. http://smartbitchestrashybooks.com/WP/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/recleague.pngThis Rec League well and truly stumped us, which doesn’t happen often. Thank you to Rosemary for sending this one in: What I am looking for are recommendations for books with sexy role play. When I look it up on Goodreads, it’s all Dom/Sub. What I’m looking for are couples pretending to be something they are not (cop, nurse, cheerleader, goth girl etc.). I’ve read modern novels where they play professor and student, historical novels where the Vicar and his wife pretend to be a farmer and a milkmaid. I even enjoyed
  10. http://smartbitchestrashybooks.com/WP/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Depositphotos_52671211_original-300x200.jpgIt’s March! In New England, it’s been very cold and very windy. Not a fan. However, I’m also not the biggest fan of spring given my terribly allergies. But after March comes April, and you know what that means. The SBTB April Fool’s Day surprise! We’re working on something great. We hope you’ll love it as much as we do! … I am obsessed with this “fairy tale” village in the Bay Area. Does anyone want to pool funds, buy the whole village, and make it a romance readers resort? All build
  11. Someone to Romance Someone to Romance by Mary Balogh is $1.99! This is part of today’s Kindle Daily Deals and, I believe, the most recent title in the Westcott series. It was also mentioned in a previous Hide Your Wallet. The Bitchery loves Balogh and this series especially. Do you have a favorite? Love comes when you least expect it in this captivating new novel in the Wescott Regency romance series from New York Times bestselling author Mary Balogh. Lady Jessica Archer lost her own inte
  12. http://smartbitchestrashybooks.com/WP/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/ElyseBachelor-150x125.pngIt’s “Women Tell All” week on The Bachelor which is basically a two hour clip show and then the women yelling over each other all while Chris Harrison absorbs the toxic energy. If you’re here for a Pudding update, Lady P is doing great and getting friendlier every day. She would still eat Chris Harrison’s face off though. http://smartbitchestrashybooks.com/WP/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/unnamed-2-e1614722393867.jpg We open with a montage of all the shitty stuff Queen Victoria has said which is …a lot.
  13. A- Dolly Parton, Songteller by Dolly Parton November 17, 2020 · Chronicle Books LLC. MemoirAudiobookNonfiction When I was seven or eight years old, one of the highlights of my week was laying on the floor in my living room and watching Dolly Parton’s variety show, Dolly. I was absolutely rapt and thought she was the most beautiful woman in the world, with the very best, biggest hair ever. So you can understand why the hair was such a bi
  14. Devil in Winter Devil in Winter by Lisa Kleypas is $1.99! This is the third book in The Wallflowers series, though it can be read on its own. I feel like this one is a huge reader favorite. (It’s personally my second favorite in the series, but I know I’m the minority.) It has a shy heroine and a rakish hero. They obviously get an HEA and their son shows up as the hero in Devil in Spring Easily the shyest Wallflower, Evangeline Jenner stands to become the wealthiest, once her inheritance c
  15. This HaBO is from Ellie, who was inspired by a previous request to submit theirs: I’ve been thinking about submitting this book as an HABO forever, but was a little hesitant until seeing Jennifer’s Little Jizz on the Prairie request. But now that I know I’m not the only freakish person with little memory of a book other than a masturbation scene that nearly made my thirteen-year-old head explode, here goes. I would have read this in middle school, so early 90s. It took place in the old west, and I’m fairly sure the hero was Native American or partly so. He and the heroine were traveling toge
