While I have been ecstatic about the changing season, I could not say the same for the books I have been reading. These past few weeks, I have hit a reading slump. Which has slowed down my reading, by a lot. Lately though, I have gone into re-reading books that I used to love, in hopes to lift the book slump curse. 

I know I must not be the only one going through this reading slump. With that said, for those of you ladies and gentlemen out there who has been going through the same predicament as I did, this book recommendation post is for you. I hope that you might be able to find a book or two from this list that will be able to pull you out of the dreadful reading slump.

4. Kage ( Kage Trilogy #1)

 

Genre : M/M Romance, Contemporary, Sports 

Type   : Trilogy

Status : Completed Series 

 

BLURB  :

 

My name is Jamie Atwood, and I’m an addict. I never thought I’d say such a thing. Never had a problem being overly-attached to anything in my life. I came from a perfectly middle-class family, made good grades, and had a hot cheerleader girlfriend… but the truth is, nothing ever really moved me. So how did a guy like me become an addict?

I met Michael Kage.

Kage is an MMA fighter. A famous one. I like to think I helped him get that way.

He’s charming as hell, with looks to rival any movie star and talent to back it up. So why did he need to hire me as an intern Publicist? Simple. He has a darkness in him– like a black hole so deep it could swallow him, and me, and everyone we know– and that’s not good for business.

The first time I met him, I felt the pull. I think the addiction began at that very moment. And even if I’d known then what I know now, I would have fallen for him. How could I not?

For me, Kage is everything.

5. Take Me With You 

 

Genre : Dark, Suspense, Erotica, Adult Fiction, Romance

Type   : Standalone

Status : Published

 

BLURB  :

 

I watch.
I study.
I prowl.
I hunt.

I always go in with a plan. A set of rules for myself. I don’t take unnecessary risks. That’s how I’ve been able to evade capture all these years.

But there’s something about this girl that is different than the others. When I finally meet her, the rules become a blur. And I break the most important one of all–I take her with me.

—–

It’s just my imagination–that feeling of being watched. That those icy eyes– a vivid turquoise with a distinct golden fleck–aren’t watching me.

It’s just stress. I am the person everyone relies on. Maybe that’s why I haven’t been feeling so content with my life lately. Why I dream those eyes belong to someone who can tear me away from all of my responsibilities.

But these are just shameful fantasies, never meant to breach reality.

Then one night, the dream comes true, only it’s a horrific nightmare.

Now, I only have one task: survival.

Trigger warning: If you need one, this is really not the book for you.

Her time is over.
Things are looking up.

She’s dirty and ugly.
He’s wicked but handsome.

Six months to toy with her.
Six months of vacation and a ton of money.

I’ll hurt her beyond repair.
I’ve been through much worse.

She’s difficult to control and doesn’t obey.
I’m done submitting to anyone or anything in this life.

I should hate her.
I should hate him.

The game has changed.
I will win.

Dirty Ugly Toy is a novel that blurs the lines of right and wrong, deals with abuse, contains dubious consent, and adult subject matter. If you are sensitive to violent sexual situations, the book may not be suitable for you. Some parts of this book are not easy to read and are not intended for everyone. However, those that keep an open mind and stick with it will not be disappointed.
