Top Ten Authors I’m Thankful for in 2015

In no particular order (click the covers to purchase):

November Nine by Colleen Hoover
November 9 Review

  1. Colleen Hoover (November 9) ~ CoHo is without a doubt, my all-time favorite author, so of course she had to be included in this TTT! I liked her earlier release, Confess, but it was November 9 that totally stole the spotlight this year. It’s a phenomenal read from a phenomenal author! (PLUS, I got a copy SIGNED by her. AND NICK FREAKING BATEMAN!!!!!!!!)

The Deal by Elle Kennedy The Mistake by Elle Kennedy
Reviews: The Deal | The Mistake

  1. Elle Kennedy (The Deal/The Mistake) ~ Elle Kennedy has written my all-time FAVORITE NA sports romance series (the Off-Campus series), and I’m forever thankful for her because her books sparked my love for sports romances. She knows how to do NA right, and I’m dying to get my hands on Dean’s book!

Fuel the Fire by Krista & Becca Ritchie Long Way Down by Krista & Becca Ritchie
Review: Fuel the Fire

  1. Krista & Becca Ritchie (Fuel the Fire/Long Way Down) ~ Krista & Becca Ritchie’s Addicted series is, hands-down, my top favorite NA series ever written. The writing is flawless, and it has the BEST cast of characters I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. I still haven’t read Long Way Down yet (the final book), because I honestly just don’t want the series to end!

Falling Away by Penelope Douglas Aflame by Penelope Douglas Corrupt by Penelope Douglas Misconduct by Penelope Douglas
Reviews: Falling Away | Aflame

  1. Penelope Douglas (Falling Away/Aflame, Corrupt, Misconduct) ~ I love love looove the Fall Away series, so I’m so thankful that Penelope had not one, but TWO books in that series out this year. And Aflame… it was everything I dreamed of and more. The perfect ending for Jared and Tate. And! Corrupt – just, WOW. I’m still trying to wrap my head around this twisted book that I loved (my review is coming soon!). Also, I know Misconduct isn’t out yet, but I had the pleasure of reading an early copy and it. is. amazing. It’s about a teacher who falls for her student’s single father. Who’s a total DILF. Obviously – it’s a must-read.

The Friend Zone by Kristen Callihan The Game Plan by Kristen Callihan
Reviews: The Friend Zone | The Game Plan

  1. Kristen Callihan (The Friend Zone/The Game Plan) ~ Another NA sports romance author whose books I’m completely in love with! I first fell in love with the Game On series last year with The Hook Up, but the series has only gotten better and better since. Gray and Ethan are just… *swoons*

Risking it All by Tessa Bailey Up in Smoke by Tessa Bailey Chase Me by Tessa Bailey Need Me by Tessa Bailey Make Me by Tessa Bailey Crashed Out by Tessa Bailey
Reviews: Up in SmokeChase MeNeed Me | Make Me

  1. Tessa Bailey (Risking it All, Need Me, Crashed Out) ~ Tessa!!! Bailey!!! Earlier this year, I went on a TB reading marathon (in which I read every single one of her books) and I’m completely obsessed now (especially with Bowen). Her alpha heroes are PERFECTION and can dirty talk like no other. I’m so freaking thankful that she pumps out book after book, because I never get tired of reading them. Aaand, she’s got one more release out in Dec., Crashed Out, which is just INCREDIBLE, and now my 2nd favorite book of Tessa’s (just under Risking it All). It’s an older woman/younger man read… and I’m telling you, it’s Tessa’s HOTTEST book yet.

 Attraction by Penny Reid Heat by Penny Reid Capture by Penny Reid
Reviews: Attraction | Heat | Capture

  1. Penny Reid (Elements of Chemistry: Attraction/Heat/Capture) ~ I’m ashamed that I hadn’t read Penny Reid earlier than this year. She amazed me with her EOC series – she has a gift at writing, and I’m so thankful to have discovered her books this year (finally)!

Manwhore by Katy Evans Manwhore +1 by Katy Evans Ms. Manwhore by Katy Evans
Reviews: Manwhore | Manwhore +1 | Ms. Manwhore

  1. Katy Evans (Manwhore/Manwhore +1/Ms. Manwhore) ~ Y’all, I adore the Manwhore series. I’m so thankful that Katy Evans created Malcolm Saint, because I’m head over heels for him! The Manwhore series is one of the most romantic series I’ve read all year, and Katy Evans never ceases to amaze me with her incredible heroes.

Beautiful Secret by Christina Lauren Dark Wild Night by Christina Lauren
Reviews: Beautiful Secret | Dark Wild Night

  1. Christina Lauren (Beautiful Secret, Dark Wild Night) ~ Christina Lauren writes the best books EVER! They’re always so fun, sexy, and best of all, the characters feel so real. Every time I pick up a CLo book, I’m simply stunned by the brilliance and simplicity of their stories, so this writing duo is definitely one to be thankful for.

The Hotter You Burn by Gena Showalter
The Hotter You Burn Review

  1. Gena Showalter (The Hotter You Burn) ~ Gena Showalter surprised me so hard with The Hotter You Burn. I’d only ever read her PNR books, but I thought I’d give this book a try, and I’m so glad I did. It’s funny, sexy, romantic, and an utter joy to read. It’s definitely one of my favorite books of the year, and I’m so thankful for Gena Showalter for writing it!

What authors are you thankful for this year?

  1. Love this list! I see many authors I adore on here especially Penny Reid, whose books I don’t think I will ever stop reading because whatever she publishes seems to always be absolute gold, and Kristen Callihan, who I have come to adore and after the Game On series I seriously need more of her books so I can melt into a puddle of feels. I will definitely check out Colleen Hoover as I see she is at number 1, and a few of these authors as most of them have sparked my interest. Thanks for the post!

    • I’m so glad you love some of the same authors I do! Penny Reid is a new favorite author – I’m currently reading Ninja at First Sight and loving it! ❤ And you definitely need to check out Colleen!

      • Ninja at Firsr Sight & Happily Ever Ninja are so incredible. I love the fact she’s written a prequel of how they met to compliment the full length novel. (I actually shed some tears despite it not really being a sad book ahaha)

      • The novella is AMAZING!!! Finished it last night and died at the ending LOL. I’ll be starting HEN soon ❤ (I'm also slightly obsessed with Greg now.)

      • Omg, I cried absolute buckets and it’s not even a sad book but their relationship was just so real and beautiful…also I think I was just super sad when the book ended as I wanted it to continue forever, ahaha. Hope you enjoy it as much as the novella!
