Sunday Post - 84 & Stacking the Shelves - 54

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~this meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~ It's a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

I hope everyone had a great week and a Happy Valentine's Day--whether you're single or not. Husband surprised me with a new Kindle Paperwhite, and I was so excited to add to my kindle collection. I've been wanting a Paperwhite for some time, but couldn't really justify spending the money on it. Other than that, this week has been pretty good with nothing to complain about.

He Belongs With Me

By: Sarah Darlington

Expected Publication: March 4th 2014

Genre: New Adult, Contemporary

Source: Author (Thank you!!)

( Goodreads )

Goodreads description--Two girls. One Leo.

Identical twins, Maggie and Clara Ryder, both grew up with Leo Maddox, billionaire playboy, apparent alcoholic, and heir to his grandfather's world-famous Maddox hotel empire. Their roles were cemented long ago: Maggie, as his best friend and Clara as his childhood nemesis.

But when a simple twist of fate changes everything and both girls start to fall for the lean, mean, ridiculously sexy and seemingly spoiled Leo... which girl will win his heart?

Throw in a little mischief, drama, and one smoking-hot bartender and lines are sure to blur. But one thing's for certain, neither good-girl Maggie nor rebellious Clara will be satisfied until they each figure out where they belong.

*NEW ADULT ROMANCE. Recommended for 17+ due to sexual situations and adult language.
