I'm looking for recommendations on what to read next. Here are a list of the books I have recently read and are looking for books with a similar feel:

Beautiful Disaster - Jamie Mcguire
Easy - Tamara webber
Slammed & Point of Retreat - Colleen Hoover
Thoughtless & Effortless - S C Stephens
Hearts in Darkness - Laura Kaye

Absolutely loved the first three books on my list. I am about to read Love Unscripted, but at the moment I am only taking 1-2 days to read a book, so need recommendations for when I'm done.

thanks :-)

Hi Willow, I've read all those on your list and also enjoyed the following: 'All the Wrong Reasons' and 'Vicious Circles' by J L Paul. 'Rock Me' and 'Unleashed' both by Cherrie Lynn. 'Bared to You' by Sylvia Day also great (similar in theme to Fifty Shades)

Gabriels Inferno and Gabriels Rapture by Sylvain Reynard
Almost - Anne Eliot
The Boy Who Sneaks in my Window - Kirsty Moseley
Collision Course - SC Stephens
Barely Breathing, Reason to Breathe by Rebecca Donovan
Between the Lines, Where You Are, Good for You - Tammara Webber

A bit of a twist are Significance, Accordance and Definance by Shelly Crane

I have really enjoyed all of the above and all the books you have listed I have read so I think that we have similar taste.

Hope that helps!!

Thanks DonnaC, have added these books to my TBR list. I have just read a book called Crash by Nicole Williams which I thought was quite good. It is about two people who are in the last year of high school though, whether that bothers you? Had a bit of a Beautiful Disaster feel to it, you might want to check it out.

You need to read Reason to Breath - Rebecca Donovan the first of a 3 part installment. AMAZING

Thanks Willow, I already have downloaded Crash as that came up as one of my recommendations on Amazon, have just started reading Flat-out Love as I downloaded that first and Crash is next. I have just finished reading the Providence Trilogy by Jamie McGuire, I really really enjoyed those, again like the Significance Trilogy they have the twist of "the other side" but the romantic story line in between had me hooked. The Providence Trilogy is made up of Providence, Requiem and Eden, highly recommended!! Happy reading!!

Willow says:
Thank you Jade & Donna, Reason to breathe has just moved to the top of my TBR pile, think I'll start that tonight. :-)
Donna, I had looked at Providence Trilogy, but wasn't sure how much romance vs fantasy/paranormal story line there would be and this put me off a bit, plus there werent that many reviews. Given that we have seem to have similar tastes and you enjoyed it with the romantic story having you hooked I will give it a go. I would also me interested in what you think of Flat-out love when you've finished it, it is on my TBR list.
Thanks again! :-)

Quarter of the way through and so far so good, no real romance yet but think I know where it is heading..mainly background stuff at the moment.. no doubt I will finish it later and I will update lol. Since I have had my kindle it is permanently attached to my hand and I am reading at an insane rate so like you need advice on new books. Happy to share reviews and tips esp as we seem to have similar tastes. :-)

Would love to Donna, I've only just started reading these types of books and have listed all I've read so far so can't recommend any personally yet, but there are a couple of books that have been recomended to me based on the above reading list. So you might want to check them out:

Fall From Grace - by Christine Zolendz - apparently has a Beautiful Disaster feel, but has a paranormal twist at the end - book 1 of a series. However just looked only has two reviews that arent that great - the person I know who has read it gave it 4/5 though? as only 99p I'll probably give it a go but have other reads first.

While it lasts - by Abbi Glines - apparently very good. Book three in a series, (breathe, then because of low) but as each book is centred around different people you can read as a standalone - apparently the main characters from beacuse of low are in While it lasts, so if the other books appeal read them in order. (EDIT - OK it looks like you need to atleast read Because of Low first as the main H in While it lasts seems to feature a lot in it)

I'll let you know of any more as I read or hear about them. Looking forward to your update of F-OL. :-)

I have just read While It Lasts by Abbi Glines, I read it in one sitting (been up since 4am lol) it was such a really good read, I loved loved loved it.... am now going to download the rest of her books!!!

I loved Flat Out Love, was such a lovely heart breaking story, not a traditional romance story but has an element of that involved...more a story about a broken family...a heartbreaking story in fact that made me cry soooo much...it is a beautiful book...the facebook messages between 2 of the characters though cracked me up and really made me laugh and lighten the story up a little...definitely a 5/5!!

Read Crash too, loved the book, made me cry as well, have done so much reading over the last 24 hours I have hardly slept lol!!

Thanks Donna, I have just finished Reason to Breathe - how can it end like that???? I have downloaded barely breathing which I will start later, but kind of scared to as I have heard that there is a book three coming out, so hope it doesnt end on a cliff hanger! (i dont know if I can wait after waiting for Reckless (Thoughless series) and the third Slammed book all due soon) I LOVED Reason to Breathe so thanks!! As it's the weekend and I dont have to work I should have loads of reading time so I think I'll give While it lasts a go this weekend too.

Again I havent read myself yet, but people have recommended Kristen Ashley's books. Particularly Motorcycle Man (The Dream Man Series) &Sweet Dreams (Colorado Mountain Series) although they are parts of series and I'm not sure if you have to read them in order? Also this book: Heart on a Chain maybe worth ago!

I agree Donna, these sorts of books were never my sort of thing, but I just can't get enough of them now! (and Yes fifty started it for me too lol)

Yey to our little book club! :-D

While it lasts - Abbi Glines
Hope's Chance - Jennifer Foor

Both are new releases and as edgy as Thoughtless and Beautiful Disaster

In reply to an earlier post on 3 Aug 2012 18:01:40 BDT
Hope's Chance - similar to BD and Thoughtless

Donna & Jade What have you done to me?? Just finished Barely Breathing. Emotional Rollercoast or what? Gutted it ended like that! when is the next one out? I really hope there is a HEA at the end. I Loved the second book, but it has left me feeling a bit lost lol! What to read next? so many good recommendations and I really need a happy ending now!! Ok I know I said It'd read "while it lasts" next, but I am not sure if I will read it right now, Might try something else off your lists instead.
BTW Donna The Vincent Boys books by Abbi Glines are meant to be good too.
