I’ll pick 3 winners at random to receive an ecopy of LIGHT IN THE SHADOWS by A. Meredith Walters.



  1. Mary Jo Toth says:

    I am finally reading the Thoughtless series by S.C. Stephens … OMG! Couldn’t put down Thoughtless, frustrated to be at work since I would rather be reading Effortless. This story has been an amazing, crazy, exciting, wonderful roller coaster!! I have a feeling the Find You in the Dark series may have similar effects. 🙂

  2. Amber Bennett says:

    Reckless by SC Stephens. I can’t get over bc I felt like I was apart of it and when it ended I was so sad. I feel like I need to know where they are today!!

  3. Tina V. says:

    The book I haven’t been able to get over is Hopeless. I loved this book and can’t get over the depth of the story. I was sucked in and was flipping out when I got smacked with the twist! Loved the story, loved the characters…didn’t want it to end…and that is why I can’t let it go!

  4. Veronica says:

    I think my book choice would be No Way Back by Chloe Adams. It was a great book. I read it a while ago and I still remember the feeling of betrayal. Very few books make me cry and this one was heartbreaking.

  5. Shelley Newham says:

    There are 2 books for me…The Consequences Series by Aleatha Roming. Those 2 books were total mindf&*ks! I loved the back stories, I loved the character development of Claire & Tony. I loved watching them come back together. I can’t wait for the 3rd one!! <3

  6. stefnuss says:

    The Fault in Our Stars by John Green is the book that I’ll never get over, ever. I think I sobbed ugly tears the entire time. It’s the love story that you hate because someone dies and your heart just aches for that other person who has to live life without their true love. Plus, with both lovers having cancer and the one that has better chances dying, it’s just heartbreaking and I’m crying about it just writing this comment. John Green literally took my heart out of my chest and fed it to the wolves with this book. I always tell people if you don’t cry while reading The Fault in Our Stars, you don’t have a soul. I love love stories, young and old love. This book is of young, short love. It just proves that even if time is really short, you have the ability to fall in love and that time should never measure love.

  7. Brenda Tetreault says:

    Oh my gosh! This is SUCH a tough question to answer! Gut reaction would have to be the Darkest Seduction by Gena Showalter. Poor Paris and Sienna! They were doomed from the start, but he loved her enough to find a way for them to be together, and BOY! The outcome left me gasping, crying, and DYING to reread it!

  8. Anne Milne says:

    Chasing Nikki – Lacey Wetherford. I have read books that made me smile, angry, root for the bad boy and some that made me cry, this book made to do all of them. I was truly heartbroken for Chase , can’t remember the last time. cried so much while reading a book.

  9. Casey says:

    The Giver by Lois Lowry. It was my irate taste of dystopian when I was twelve, and I remember my fascination when Jonah first saw color. It forever changed my impression of the things we take advantage of, and it started my lifelong love of reading, particularly YA.

  10. Amber S. says:

    When I think of book hangovers, I immediately think of Essence of Time (Stewart Realty #4) by Liz Crowe. It is such a heartbreaking story and you really feel like you are living through it. It is so emotional and intense and amazing. My heart hurts just to think about it. Highly recommend picking up this series!!

  11. Anna Granberg says:

    The Storyteller by Antonia Michaelis, It was beautifully written and an unique story, it touched my heart. I read the book last year and I’m still thinking of it… ღ

  12. Brandi Sears says:

    The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden – even though there is another book coming out I will never get over the ending and the way I felt not knowing. I still don’t know and I may not read the other book to know. Once you open yourself up and show “your ugly” to someone and they have their even uglier to share. The tides of ugly keep showing up, do you or will you ever get over them. This book let two beautiful individuals and brought them together for a reason. Love at some point can not always be enough. There is a kitchen floor somewhere in my fictional book world that has my heart laying there, beating 90 times the limit wanting for so much peace and love for the two people I fell in love with. When you wake up at night to reread the ending to make sure you really did have that happen. You think no it didn’t! It won’t! I can’t! I could read another book for 2 solids days! I kept repeating I did not let that book shred me that way but it did. 🙁

  13. Laura Mendez says:

    Barely breathing series has me anxious to know what’s going to happen next

  14. Saved by Kelly Elliot. Amazing love story that continues the character from Wanted. It ended with such a cliffhanger and so many other open possibilities. I can’t stop wondering & guessing what will happen next!

    • admin says:

      Lisa- I know what you mean. I read this right before Light In The Shadows. I feel like I’ve been on a bender of a weekend from the books I read. 🙂

  15. Jenna Chianello says:

    How do you enter?

  16. Jenna Chianello says:

    I’d like to win 🙂

  17. Robin Prete says:

    Two books. I have never been able to get over Taking Chances by Molly McAdams or The Opportunist by Tarryn Fisher. 2 AMAZEBALLS books!

  18. Jamie Lynn says:

    Taking Chances by Mollie McAdams. This book ripped me apart. I wasn’t even sure I wanted to finish it, or really, if I even could. but I made myself. I loved Harper and Chase together! I think it should come with a warning label. lol

  19. I loved loved loved loved The Edge of Never” by J.A. Redmerski. I balled my eyes out!!!!!! At the end I found I was holding my breath and not even knowing it. The writer took me on this journey through her writing. Super book. Everybody must read this one!!!! Highly recommend!!!!

  20. Melissa says:

    Taking Chances wrecked me! So much so that I was terrified to read her next book….afraid she would do the same thing to me.

  21. Ashley Parsons says:

    I can’t get over the Slammed series by Colleen Hoover. They are such great books, can’t wait for the 3rd!!!!!

    • admin says:

      I remember when I first read them. I had stayed up the whole 24 hours to finish reading both books. I was bawling my eyes out. I pm’d Colleen Hoover to tell her I felt like she had punched me- the books were that good.

  22. Vickie Milizia says:

    I absolutely love the Mitchell Family series by Jennifer Foor.

  23. maria m says:

    Easy By Tammara Webber
    Because it made me feel~ from the oh poor her to the damn jump on him now!! to the WTF is wrong with you people!! all the way back to the Awwww it was better to end this way!
    Its my go to book when I get confused and don’t know what I should read next.

  24. Donna Freeman says:

    I totally agree this book reaches into your soul and leaves you with so many thoughts and tears. I will read the next because I hope that there is a happily ever after for Kayden & Callie.

  25. My most recent hangover has come courtesy of Emily Snow & the aptly titles Devoured series, just as soon as I load one on my reader I can’t put it down and focus on anything else. Then I’m sad its gone and I want more and have to go back and read again to see if I missed anything the first time 🙂 Thank you for the chance to win!

  26. Amber G. says:

    Gosh, tough question. First thought is the Thoughtless series. I still dream of them. But I would also say Hopeless, it just grabbed me and never let go. As far as one single book that haunts me would be Thirteen Reasons Why. It isn’t a love story, it is just a story. A story that makes you stop and think and just remember. I will never forget this book.

  27. Anna Nicole U. says:

    Wow off the top of my head nothing comes to mind…You know how when someone asks you “what your favourite book is or what your favourite movie is” and you’ve seen so many suddenly you have no idea what to say and you just blank out…

    My answer would have to be CJ Roberts – Dark Duet series. Captive in the Dark and Seduced in the Dark. I mean granted Seduced in the Dark had a GOOD ENDING. But it still left me with so many questions (thank god there’s an Epilogue). There was this part in SITD where something awful happened and I was like “I CAN’T READ THIS BOOK ANYMORE!” and I really just wanted to put it down and never finish it. I’m so glad I picked it back up.

    CITD though just like…was so emotional, I just wanted Caleb and Livie together SO BLOODY BAD!

    After I finished the series I was just like “I need to read that again…………”

  28. Darci Laffin says:

    My first though is The Edge of Never. I absolutely loved that book, and I still think about it, even though I read it quite a while ago. Let’s just say it was a good thing I read it late at night all by myself, or I’m pretty sure my family would’ve wondered what was wrong with me by all the crying that happened! More recently, I read Metamorphosis, and I loved it! I know there will be more in the series, but that one is truly stuck in my head. I had so many emotions during that book, I need some closure!

  29. Mick Murphy says:

    I’ve never been able to get over Grounded (Up in The Air #3) by R.K. Lilley. Wow. SO emotional and raw. I dreamt about it…found myself thinking about it all day… I wish there was another book so I could see what they are up to now.

  30. Sarah Underwood says:

    Oh i think my biggest book hangover was the Breathing series from Rebecca Donovan!! It totally had my stomach in knots and the anger that was building inside me to jump into that book and strangle that mean horrible lady!! I honestly couldn’t read another book for days because my head was just not in place! Soo looking forward to reading Out of Breathe to see where the story has taken us, i can see tissues for this book too!!!! This will be one series I won’t be able to forget 🙂

  31. Rosarita Reader says:

    The book that is currently stuck in my head is Falling Into You by Yasinda Wilder. It ripped my heart out and I cried like a baby. It was so beautifully written I could “see” what was happening and I could “feel” the pain of the characters. I could “hear” the music. I went through every emotion and when it was over I couldn’t stop reliving it in my head.

  32. Linda Dake says:

    Taking Chances by molly mcadams. I loved this book until I got like 50 to 60 % in and then the abrupt departure of a certin book boyfriend left me devastated that I quit reading the book. To this day I still have not gotten over that fact! I am so sad and despite never finishing it still think about it, I won’t read anything by her anymore.

    • admin says:

      Linda– that is unfortunate– cuz I think you would absolutely love From Ashes (no departures). But the writing is just as powerful and beautiful. Think about it.

  33. Denise Evans says:

    Surrender by Melody Anne the way it leaves you hanging at the end I have never read one that is a romance book that ended the way it did!

  34. Joyce Burch says:

    Sc Stephans Thoughtless Effortless an Reckless. I loved the characters they all came to life in these books

  35. Kristi Celebrezze says:

    That’s so hard to say, but it would be the Thoughtless series. The characters seemed very real to me.

  36. Serena Knautz says:

    I would have to say Consequences and Truth. Both books made me feel like I was on a roller coaster, stuck upside down at times. I can’t wait until Convicted! I would also say The Sweet Gum Tree. It is one of my favorite books. It is wonderfully written and the story had me hooked from page one!

  37. Alma says:

    I am going to put all of these books .. that I have not read..into my ‘to read’ file… Thanks ladies! Love these romance stories.. Gotta dream somewhere!

  38. Rachel R says:

    The Thoughtless series by SC Stephens!!! The male lead, Kellan Kyle. *swoons*

  39. maranda says:

    out of all the books i have read i think slammed or the dark series would have to be my two i can’t seem to forget. As someone who has to be supportive of my family and had to care for them i tend to enjoy will. He is alot like me. He has to care for his bother and work. He was forced to grow up and deal with everything so fast. I was in the same boat only my parents didn’t die. I was forced to grow up fast due to issues in my family. I looked out for my bother and was more the adult than my parents at some times.

    When I read the Dark series I was not so sure i would like it. I had issues with older guys that didn’t turn out well when i was a child. The fact that he changed his way of living and never forced himself on her is where i gained his respect. He cared for her from the start and that showed. He tried to avoid it but couldn’t and then he feels so sorry for what he did to her even from the start. He was trying to protect himself and it is what is something i tend to do. I am very protective of myself and seeing this in print and i know how he felt. these are two of my faves
