Book hauls

November Weekly Kindle Haul #4

Happy Sunday! I’m sure it will come as no surprise but I completely failed at my 13 book limit. I’m currently at 20 Kindle books bought and we still have a few days left of the month. I did intend to not even look at the deals once I hit my limit but I was anxious at the thought that I could be missing out on some great discounts. Which there were so I don’t even feel bad about breaking my limit because so many of these books were on my radar. I haven’t done this in awhile but I will link any bestselling book to Amazon if it is still on sale and let you know the sale price under each image (which is clickable and will take you straight to Amazon).

Everyone knows you should never say never. 

Cooper Moore never saw Maggie Williams coming. She was just his best friend’s little sister, the curly-haired, freckle-faced girl from Mississippi who was absolutely off limits. And he never thought about her any other way — not until he saw her that night, broken and brave. From that moment on, he knew he’d do whatever it took to protect her, even if it meant he had to stay away. 

Maggie never expected to find her fiancé banging her maid of honor an hour before she was set to walk down the aisle, but life’s funny that way. The only option to save her sanity is to get the hell out of Jackson and move to New York where her brother lives. The only downside: Cooper is there too. And she just doesn’t know if she can stay away from him — the filthy rich, dead sexy playboy who’s allergic to commitment. 

The second Maggie sees him again, she realizes he’ll be impossible to resist. Luckily, commitment is the last thing on her mind, and Cooper is the perfect escape. As long as she can keep her heart in check, everything will be just fine. Because she can never have feelings for him. Or at least that’s what she’ll keep telling herself.
