Giveaway: I am Yours and guest post last 10 books read by Faith Sullivan

I Am Yours (Heartbeat, #3) I am Yours by Faith Sullivan

Adam is at a crossroads.
He has Katie on his mind and Jada in his bed.
Now with the ultimate choice before him, he must decide between fantasy and reality.
Katie's his dream girl, but Jada's his best friend, his partner. As a paramedic, he's supposed to save lives, not wreck them. Yet his failure to commit leaves a trail of heartache in his wake.
Things come to a head at his brother's wedding when a surprise announcement leaves Adam scrambling to pick up the pieces. Sure, women find his shaggy blond hair and aquamarine eyes irresistible. But to him, sex is nothing more than a means of escape ... until it turns into a psychological trap.
His mind is telling him one thing, while his heart is beating another. He's not sure what he wants when it comes to a serious relationship. Sorting out his feelings, he finally comes to a startling realization. He is capable of love.
But what if it's too late

1. Playing With Her Heart by Lauren Blakely
I love the tongue-in-cheek nature of this romance novel. Lauren Blakely has her heroine addicted to erotic e-books. How ironic that most of her readers would readily admit the same. Jill is a young woman who went through a breakup that really messed her up. She hasn't had sex in a very long time, even though her friends think she's an expert in the bedroom. Instead, she's become a pro at silently pleasuring herself through her celebrity fantasies and her midnight reading sessions.
2. Behind Closed Doors by Ashelyn Drake
Being in a relationship is all about fitting in when it comes to our social circles. No one enjoys feeling like a third wheel. We all want what everyone else has. That's why I immediately understood where Julia is coming from in this New Adult novel. It sucks when your roommate's bed permanently has a double lump in it because her boyfriend stays over all the time. There's no escaping it when your best friend and her boyfriend are attached at the hip. It hurts to have your singleness rubbed in your face and living in a college environment doesn't make it any easier.
3. Girl on Tour by Caisey Quinn
What do you do when the guy you love is broken and you can't fix him? This raw and gritty premise is one author Caisey Quinn explores with range and depth, not often found in New Adult fiction. It's a challenging tightrope to walk when it comes to penning a sequel, but her flawless execution delivers. There are scorching hot sex scenes and enough moments of girly fluff to satisfy the book's target audience, but what sets the novel apart is its honest assessment of alcoholism and the pitfalls of fame.
4. Keep Me Still by Caisey Quinn
My heart always connects with a vulnerable heroine, and I immediately bonded with Layla. Her medical condition. Her inexperience with guys. Her loner tendencies. Caisey Quinn once again struck gold in creating such an empathetic character. I could understand her hesitation to trust, and how she kept pulling away from others for fear that they'd end up hurting her. She's gun-shy when it comes to having faith in the people who care about her. She thinks that everyone eventually leaves. She's afraid that loving someone is a curse, ensuring she'll always be alone.
5. The Wedding Date by Yolanda Allen
It's so nice to be able to read an African American voice when it comes to New Adult fiction. And I'm not just talking about references to coffee brown skin and ebony curls, either. Yolanda Allen fashions her characters in THE WEDDING DATE as urban, sophisticated individuals with hearts of gold thanks to their down home Southern upbringings. They never forget where they came from or who they are, but they're also capable players on the New York City stage when it comes to their professional careers and luxurious lifestyles. They dine at the most exclusive restaurants. They wear the hottest designer labels. They sleep on the finest organic cotton sheets. But they're not looking for one night stands or casual flings, and that's what sets this love story apart.
6. Hopeless by Colleen Hoover
I admire a writer who has the balls to do something daring. Colleen Hoover is one of the select few. What started off as a whiny, self-absorbed teen fest transformed into something much richer and highly satisfying. An author rarely throws such a curveball at the halfway point of a novel (especially when it's marketed to a Young Adult/New Adult audience where plot patterns and formulas are usually the norm). Not so in this case, and judging by the book's phenomenal success readers have bucked the trend and embraced this gutsy approach.
7. The Love Game by Emma Hart
Are there hot sex scenes? Yes. But the novel is so much more than that. It's a book that holds a mirror up to reality, getting its New Adult audience to reexamine its priorities. Random hook-ups don't make you happy, a genuine connection to another human being does. When life gets difficult, you need someone who's going to have your back.
8. Losing Francesca by J.A. Huss
I know the book has a girl's name in the title, but Brody just swept me away. He stole the show as far as I'm concerned. From this point forward, Brody Mason is definitely moving to the top of my book boyfriend list. Ladies, you won't be disappointed in getting to know him a whole lot better. He's so worth the time it takes to read this book.
9. Advantage: Heartbreak by Kelly Hashway
A bombshell is dropped in the final pages, the kind that you feel in the pit of your stomach. It's the type of revelation that sends Meg reeling. She put her trust in the wrong guy. After all of the emotion that went into her decision, she ends up right back at square one. She didn't learn from her past mistakes, instead she ends up repeating them. Will she find redemption in book three? Will she be able to win back the guy she rejected? I can't wait to find out!
10. Love in Darkness by Emily Mah Tippetts
I like books that throw me an unexpected curve. Ones that challenge my perception of a genre. And E.M. Tippetts did just that with LOVE IN DARKNESS. I walked into the novel completely blind. I hadn't read the first in the series. I didn't peek at the synopsis. So the opening chapter came as somewhat of a shock. I thought: what the heck is going on here? But I liked it. I wanted to delve deeper, and boy, am I glad I did.
