Back Porch Gossip -- where we dish on the hottest new releases and sales!


I've been a slacker guys! Sorry, sorry, but I'm kicking myself and trying to get myself in gear so I can bring you this column weekly bi-weekly (don't want to set myself up for failure). We chat in the book club about books all the time, so I thought it would be a good idea to share some of the juicy gossip  with you.  We'll share sales, new releases, books that caught our eye, pre-orders, and other juicy news. I'm really trying to only promote books from authors that we are familiar with to ensure that I'm sending out the best quality information that I can! Some of these books have been read by me or Ashley, but some are from authors that we have read other books by before. Feel free to shoot us an email at if you have some other gossip to contribute to our column. As always, lots of love from us and thanks for reading:)
Blind Obsession by Ella Frank -- Here's what Ash has to say about this one!

"Blind Obsession by Ella Frank is on sale right now for just 99 little pennies! This is one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE BOOKS, y'all!! If you haven't read it yet, now is the perfect time! --Ash"

Unfixable by Tessa Bailey -- I'm currently reading Protecting What's His by this author! I was talking to a few friends this weekend and they said that I had to read this one! Color me happy when I saw that it was only $.99! They said I would be crazy if I didn't one-click that bad boy. Crazy I am, but stupid I am not. I ONE-CLICKED!

When I told the book club about this one, Jessica said, "I love Tessa Bailey!"

I hope I do too!

It Was You (Abby and West, #1)It Was You (Abby & West) by Anna Cruise  -- I' m a fan of this author. I've read three of her other books and love her writing. She has a writing style that is so smooth and fluid. I love her writing voice, so I can't wait to dive in to this series. You can start it with me for only $.99 right now.

Pushing the Limits (Pushing the Limits, #1)Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry $.31 people!!! What. A. Deal. I read this last year and really loved it. Think damaged bad boy meets damaged girl (who used to be Ms. Popular and was dethroned after she went a little batty after a tragedy) It's YA and it's good and it's only $.31! Do I really need to say anymore? I'm pretty sure you were sold at $.31.

Into the Deep (Into the Deep, #1)Into the Deep by Samantha Young -- Oooohhh!! This is from the author of On Dublin Street. I'll never forget Braden!! One of the best book boyfriends ever! This was released awhile ago, but it was a cliffy so I shied away. The next book is out now though and this is on sale for $.99. I one-clicked just now!! <3

Relentless (Shattered Hearts, #1) Relentless by Cassia Leo-- I heart this series so much! It's so good. I read it all in one weekend. The first book has a small triangle. Just ahhh!! Such a fan. Check it out. It's only $.99

Girl with Guitar (Kylie Ryans, #1) Girl with Guitar by Caisey Quinn  -- Kylie and Trace forever!! My favorite country couple in the history of book country couples! Probably the first country star romance I've read at all actually and the WHOLE series is phenomenal, and, yep, you guessed it, you can get the first book for $.99!!!

Storm Warning (Broken Heartland, #1) Storm Warning by E. Lee and C. Quinn  -- I really love you guys so I will give you a warning about the cliffhanger. It's a bad one, but this book is sooooo good. I'm really looking forward to the release of the other books (hopefully this summer!!!)

Unbreakable by Rebecca Shea -- I one clicked this one!
Archer's Voice by Mia Sheridan  -- I read this one. I think most of you will like it. It wasn't my personal favorite, but it's definitely a reader favorite right now. #1 bestseller I think!
Law Man by Kristen Ashley -- OMG!! Kristen Ashley! I love her and this book! Price drop!
Be With Me by J. Lynn -- I've read several other books by this author and they have all been good. Major price drop!
