Next up in my NOOK/Kindle book hoarding series is Heather. Heather and I became friends a few years ago with our mutual love of television. Since then we have spent a lot of time discussing everything, and I mean everything, under the sun over email all day, every day. Below is Heather’s NOOK and Kindle apps from her iPad and a brief description of her reading likes. Let’s give Heather a warm welcome ABCers!
I’m one of those people that reads all different types of books, however regardless which device you are looking at what you will find the most of the ones I have on my ereaders are romance novels and YA titles.
Thanks to the kind generosity of a couple of my very good friends, I was gifted a NOOK for Christmas in 2011. I’ve loved every second of reading on my NOOK and while looking through the titles that appear there, it doesn’t take long to notice that the other thing that I love are series books. I am a sucker for a good series and love the thought of following the characters through until the end. Love, love, love it! I also normally end up reading most, if not all, of the books that an author writes if I find I really like them. Again, that’s evident on my NOOK!
On my Kindle you’ll see that again there are mostly romance novels and a vast majority of them are of the free variety since I don’t actually own a Kindle (however, I’ve asked for one for my birthday!) and I do most of my reading on one of the available apps. I also tend to borrow a lot of books from friends on the Kindle too since Amazon has a lot more titles that are lendable. I have started buying more books from Amazon as I find the selection (and sometimes the prices) to be better there.
Whether NOOK or Kindle, the bottom line is I pretty much stick to romance and YA. What can I say, I’m a girl and I like sexy, hot heroes! 😉
1) Hardball by V.K. Sykes
After years of hard work and keeping her nose firmly to the grindstone, Dr. Holly Bell has finally achieved her dream: a position as a pediatric surgeon at a prestigious teaching hospital. Children’s lives rest in her skilled hands. That means total dedication to her work and her patients without letting anything or anyone get in the way. And a hot affair with a superstar athlete is most definitely getting in Holly’s way.
Nate Carter, star pitcher for the Philadelphia Patriots, has the world in the palm of his baseball glove. He’s at the height of his game, a west coast team is about to lure him with even greater riches, and the most gorgeous women in town are in full pursuit. Nate has everything he wants, or at least he thinks he does, until he meets the beautiful and brainy Dr. Holly Bell. He’s totally up for a hot affair, and Holly turns out to be the hottest.
But will Holly be willing to play his game? When the lovely doctor starts changing the rules, Nate realizes he just might be playing for keeps.

After leaving home three years ago to run his aging grandfather’s ranch in Texas, Sam Strickland returns to Tennessee to discover a child he didn’t know existed.

Being one of the guys isn’t all it’s cracked up to be…
So when journalist Chastity O’Neill returns to her hometown, she decides it’s time to start working on some of those feminine wiles. Two tiny problems: #1–she’s five feet eleven inches of rock-solid girl power, and #2–she’s cursed with four alpha male older brothers.
While doing a story on local heroes, she meets a hunky doctor and things start to look up. Now there’s only one problem: Trevor Meade, her first love and the one man she’s never quite gotten over–although he seems to have gotten over her just fine.
Yet the more time she spends with Dr. Perfect, the better Trevor looks. But even with the in-your-face competition, the irresistible Trevor just can’t seem to see Chastity as anything more than just one of the guys….
2) Jacked Up by Erin McCarthy
She’s holding tight. He’s hanging loose.
Eve Monroe is a stock-car PR pro who puts her career first—until an on-track wardrobe malfunction reveals more than the sexy smile of jackman Nolan Ford. The video’s become an internet sensation, and it’s Eve’s job to calm the sponsors and put a spin on the unexpected exposure.
And they both have the same drive.
It may be a public relations job, but now that Eve’s seen what’s under Nolan’s crew suit, it’s gotten personal. After a few dates she has Nolan pretty revved up. If only she’d learn to relax and enjoy it. Nolan’s sure that the spontaneous birthday bash he’s throwing for Eve in Las Vegas should loosen her up. Somewhere between cocktails and a smoking-hot motel-room derby, it does more than that. Now Eve’s wrestling with feelings she never expected, as everything about her personal jackman gets harder than she ever imagined.
3) More Than A Friend Request by Julie Prestsater
Sometimes there is no escaping the past.
Hannah Jones is a relatively happy woman doing a job she loves, counseling high school students, owning her own place and working with her best friend. She seems to have everything she ever wanted. The only problem is she still wants the one who got away. Adam Cooper. The love of Hannah’s life and the man who broke her heart. She hasn’t heard from him in fifteen years and suddenly there he is asking her to be his friend on a social network. Faced with a choice, Hannah must decide if she should open herself to potential heartbreak once again and accept him, or hit decline and run as fast as she can.
Adam Cooper walked away from the one he loved fifteen years ago. But the passing time has done little to make him forget the sexy woman with wild hair and big brown eyes. Not a single day has gone by that he hasn’t thought about Hannah and wished she were back in his arms. Now, his little sister has convinced him to make an account on a social site and he can’t help but search for the woman who has invaded his dreams for more than a decade. He has the perfect job and the perfect family. There’s only one thing—or person—missing and he’s finally ready to get her back. But first, Hannah must be willing to accept his request.
4) Insurgent by Veronica Roth
One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.
Tris’s initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.
