So Much More by Kim Holden – Retail Value $14.99

Book Summary from Amazon:

Love is strange. It comes out of nowhere. There’s no logic to it. It’s not methodical. It’s not scientific. It’s pure emotion and passion. And emotion and passion can be dangerous because they fuel love…and hate.
I’m now a reluctant connoisseur of both—an expert through immersion. I know them intimately.

When I fell in love with Miranda, it was swift and blind. She was the person I’d elevated to mythical status in my head, in my dreams.
Here’s the thing about dreams, they’re smoke.
They’re spun as thoughts until they become something we think we want. Something we think we need.

That was Miranda. She was smoke.

I thought I wanted her. I thought I needed her.

Over time reality crept in and slowly dissected and disemboweled my dreams like a predator, leaving behind a rotting carcass.

Reality can be a fierce bitch.
So can Miranda.

And I can be a fool…
who believes in dreams.

And people.

And love.

And every book in this subscription is signed by the author:

King by T.M. Frazier – Retail Value $14.99 (Free on Amazon Kindle Unlimited)

Book Summary from Amazon:

Homeless. Hungry. Desperate.

Doe has no memories of who she is or where she comes from.

A notorious career criminal just released from prison, King is someone you don’t want to cross unless you’re prepared to pay him back in blood, sweat, sex or a combination of all three.

King’s future hangs in the balance. Doe’s is written in her past. When they come crashing together, they will have to learn that sometimes in order to hold on, you have to first let go.

King is the first book in a two part series. Tyrant is the name of the second book due out August 2015.

Hm, based on the summary and the reviews, I’m guessing this book won’t be for me.

 Each box also comes with some BookWorm box items:

 

bookworm-box-may-swag

A pen and a chip clip, plus:

bookworm-box-may-sticker

A book opener/holder?, a metal bookmark and a sticker.

I’m still trying to figure out this book opener tool:

bookworm-box-may-book-holder

And each box also includes promo cards/bookmarks for other series:

Verdict: I’d recommend this box if you’re looking for a signed contemporary/new adult romance books and giving back with your purchase. It definitely isn’t going to be a high-value box, but I’m enjoying it.

 

I’m not sure if both of these books will work for me, but So Much More gets great reviews, so I’m excited to give it a try even though I have no idea what it’s about – that summary isn’t much to work with!

What do you think of the Bookworm Box?
