Infelizmente muitos dos que eu queria que fossem indicados, não foram. Acredito que principalmente pelo fato de alguns serem self published como Paper Princess. Também estava torcendo para Wicked Sexy Liar (Wild Seasons, #4) da Christina Lauren, Lenora Bell e algum dos livros da série Wingman Inc. da Rachel Van Dyken.

                                        Já leu algum dos indicados? Deixe um comentário!
