One Equal Temper, by Alex Brantham. (Still 0.99?)
"Entertaining and lively!
Alex’s novel is a great read. It’s well written with believable characters, interesting plot, and a great mix of humor, romance, and intrigue. It’s an unique read, offering a “behind-the-scenes” view of the Olympics. I felt as though I was volunteering in the event too.
The plot advances from a romantic comedy to an adventurous thriller. It’s refreshing to read a non-sentimental romance novel without the heroic protagonists who are perfect and beautiful. And his writing style is refreshing and direct, no over-inflated poetic descriptions that often slow down the pace of a romantic novel." -- Amazon reviewer

The Way of Kings (The Stormlight Archive Book 1), by Brandon Sanderson. (Still free?)
"This colossal volume opens a fantasy saga clearly influenced by the Wheel of Time, which the author is in fact finishing. It’s a classic story of intrigue, magic, and war, with a large cast of characters and multiple settings lovingly detailed in a way only possible in volumes of this size. Two characters stand out. One is Shallin, a young woman seeking to enter the household of a royal princess so that she can steal a magical talisman and restore the tattered fortunes of her family. The other is Kaladin, a gifted young soldier enslaved for desertion, who fights his way back to freedom in battles on the Shattered Plain. There’s wit (Shallin’s amiably unscrupulous sailor protect Yod is a gem), magic (the weather is almost a character in its own right), and erudition (if the fighting on the Shattered Plain doesn’t owe something to WWI, this reviewer would be surprised). Readers will plunge into it, even as they send up cries for a glossary and cast of characters." -- Booklist

The Fine Art of Keeping Quiet, by Charity Tahmaseb. (Still 2.99?)
"A brilliant work. Moving, relatable, entertaining, thought-provoking. Beautiful. Charity Tahmaseb: I wish your book had existed when I was fifteen. I appreciated the dry humor in much of Jolia's narration, which is also full of many other nuggets that gave me pause. Honestly, what does humiliation sound like? Jolia shows us how we focus so much on our defects, real or imagined, past or present, until we've turned them into something they're not. I also found the progression of the friendship and romance dynamics in the story engaging, and Tahmaseb unfolds the storyline with a deft hand.
In the face of failure, embarrassment, insecurity, or what have you, there's hope. This novel, for its brilliance, has earned a spot on my list of all-time favorites." -- Amazon reviewer

Friends With Full Benefits (Friends With Benefits Book 2), by Luke Young. (Still free?)
"Hilarious and sexy.
Young keeps the story going in this second book of his Friends with...series. The book is impossible to put down, as you just have to know what happens on the next page. Not a typical feeling when reading contemporary romance, but a great twist to the genre. Quite the unexpected thrown in there with Brian's parents, who would have thought it? I can only hope that I will be as happy as Jillian and Victoria are when I'm their age. I can't wait to see what happens in the third book as Young keeps you hanging on to that last word. Who needs sleep when you have these books around?" -- Amazon reviewer
