I didn’t get a chance to finish reading anything since the last video because my brain has been absolute soup finishing up my draft of Nicky and the Night Owls: Part Two and getting it to beta readers, but there are some excellent books that came out recently I can tell you about!
Omega’s Affinity by Cara Bryant
This title came out on January 24. It is a why choose paranormal omegaverse academy full of twists and turns, a student-professor romance, a bodyguard romance, enemies to lovers, friends to lovers, and a second chance romance.
In a world where omegas are meant to be meek and powerless, I stand to become the strongest mage in centuries.
If I survive.
Magic flows through my veins–so powerful that my father locked it away. So powerful he would have destroyed me to keep me from claiming it.
With the help of my sweet beta tutor and the bad boy mage I can’t seem to get over, I unwound the mystery of what my father did to me. In the arms of the imperious professor who I thought despised me, I found my magic again.
I’ve found something just as precious, too: love.
And it could all be ripped away in an instant.
Secrets and lies lurk in the halls of the academy that should be my safe haven, and the enemies that were once at the illustrious academy’s gates now hide within its walls.
But I have secrets of my own. I’m not the innocent omega my father sent away to Fairhaven Academy. As my power grows, I discover magic no mage is meant to have: an affinity so dangerous, many will seek to control me–or kill me.
I won’t back down.
Not without a fight.

The Leviathan’s Debt by Merri Bright

In Control by Hannah Haze
This title released January 23 and is a Why Choose omegaverse with an age gap forbidden love with a professor and student.
I’m not shy. I’m not demure.

Despite appearances, not everything is right with this pack, though, and my past threatens to destroy our burdening relationship.
I know I’m playing with fire. But burnt fingers have never stopped me before.

Because the problem with fires? They can burn out of control.
Oblivion by LK Reid

They told me I was evil, that I should burn in hell.

I am bringing my hell to them.

“Ready or not, rabbit, here I come”
The moment I open the car door and see her sweet face, I know I’m making a mistake. By offering to give me a ride, so is she. I spot the rabbit’s foot hanging from the rear-view mirror. It’s not her lucky day.
I take her with me as I run from the law. Despite being a felon and a documented sociopath, I only mean for Selena to be a ride to the border. But somewhere along the way she stirs up feelings I’ve long thought myself incapable of.
She’s my rabbit, my sweet little bunny, and I need to teach her how to run from me so I can catch her and show her what it’s like to be devoured by the predator she should be afraid of.
Danger lurks in every corner, and the risk of getting caught grows by the day. What will I do once she takes me to my destination? Will I let her go or do something much worse? Can we find some way to stay together when the world wants to pull us apart?
The Darkest Chord by Jenn Bullard
This title released on February 3 and is a Why Choose dark contemporary rockstar romance with MMM, dubcon, noncon, kidnapping, and a bunch of other dark bits. It’s the first book in a series.
I just wanted to get out of my little town, leave the past behind. I found Turner and Roark, embraced music, and unloaded my pain into my songs. I wanted to show people I could be their voice since I know what it’s like to be small, quiet, and terrified.
But what happens when Derek, my former bully, pops back into my life with hurtful words and tries to force me back into my past?
Derek bullied me all through high school and encouraged others to torture me. I haven’t had a safe place until I found the guys and music. Now he thinks I owe him for past wrongs, but I’ve never done anything to him.
I wish he’d tell me the reason why he hates me so much so I could defend myself. He makes me think I’m losing my mind, seeing things that aren’t really there—that I’ve inherited the mental illness that runs in my family.
We are thrown together over and over again by fate, and the more I learn the more I see…maybe the villains of my past are really just victims of their own circumstances.
Kill the King by Elizabeth Dear
This title released February 10 and is a new adult why choose dark contemporary academy romance with childhood friends to enemies to lovers. It is the third and final book in the A Knight’s Revenge series. I’ll add a link to book 1 as well so you can get started.
In Saint Gabriel City, there are the Four Families, and there are those who are owned by them.
The Spencers, the Hargraves, the Ferreros, and the Knights rule the City together with their exorbitant wealth and iron fists that no one dares challenge.
Each Family has an Heir, and they are raised together to one day assume control of their respective empires, trained to crush anyone who stands in their way under the heel of their immeasurable power.
At least, there were Four Families, and there were four Heirs—until three of the Families banded together to murder the Knights in cold blood one fateful summer night.
Their daughter was only eleven years old.
And the other Heirs—three sons—were only twelve as they watched their best friend d!e on the floor of a soulless beige conference room next to her parents.
Seven years later, the remaining Heirs have taken their place at the ultra-exclusive Holywell Academy where the City’s elite strive to earn a coveted place in the Families’ kingdom by rubbing elbows with the exalted sons.
Only what Bennett Spencer, Noah Hargraves, and Zach Ferrero don’t know—what the Families have failed to realize after all these years—is that Jolie Knight didn’t die that night.
That little girl has been hiding just across the river, right under their noses.
That little girl is all grown up, and now she’s the Academy’s newest scholarship student.
That little girl is me, and I’m going to burn this City to the motherfucking ground.
