Fresh Fiction Book Subscription Box Review – July 2015 Trap

Spider’s Trap by Jennifer Estep – Retail Value $7.99 (On Amazon for $6.47)

Book Summary from Amazon:

The next thrilling book in Jennifer Estep’s New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling Elemental Assassin series—“an extraordinary series.…One of the most intriguing heroines in the genre” (Romantic Times Book Reviews).

Keep your friends close but your enemies within stabbing distance.

One important lesson I’ve learned in the assassination business is that to be the best you have to roll with the punches. Now that I’m queen of Ashland’s underworld—by default, not by choice—a lot more punches are being thrown my way. But I suppose that’s the price of victory for taking down some of the underworld’s top dogs. Good thing I have my Ice and Stone magic to help me survive my volatile new position. Just when I think things are finally settling down, someone tries to murder me during a hush-hush underworld meeting. But the real surprise is how strangely familiar my shadowy assailant seems to be.

My job is to maintain order among killers, crooks, and thieves, and soon I’m embroiled in a bloody game where the ability to keep secrets could be the greatest superpower of all. My enemies have all sharpened their knives and laid their traps, waiting for me to fall. But this Spider weaves her own webs of death…

Made for Us by Samantha Chase – Value $7.99

(This book isn’t officially released until August 4th!)

Book Summary from Amazon:

Can’t make time for love?
The Shaughnessy brothers have spent the years since their mother’s untimely death taking care of each other and trying to make their father proud. Oldest son Aidan is hard-working, handsome, successful-and still single. Sure, he’d like to have his own family someday, but who has the time?

She’ll show him how to find it
Zoe Dalton, a stunning designer Aidan meets on one of his construction jobs, has the beauty and heart to make Aidan realize how much he could be missing. But it’s not easy to break down walls you’ve spent years building up. Now there’s a major storm bearing down on the North Carolina coast, and it could be catalyst enough to force Aidan and Zoe into some major decisions of the heart.

Fresh Fiction Book Subscription Box Review – July 2015 Lady

Lady Be Good by Meredith Duran – Retail Value $7.99 (On Amazon for $5.13)

Book Summary from Amazon:

The third searing novel in the Rules for the Reckless series by Meredith Duran, the USA TODAY bestselling author of sexy and evocative Regency romances in the tradition of Sarah MacLean.

Born to a family of infamous criminals, Lilah Marshall has left behind her past and made herself into the perfect lady. Working as a hostess at Everleigh’s, London’s premier auction house, she leads a life full of art, culture, and virtue. All her dreams are within reach—until a gorgeous and enigmatic viscount catches her in the act of one last, very reluctant theft.

Christian “Kit” Stratton, Viscount Palmer, is society’s most dashing war hero. But Kit’s easy smiles hide a dark secret: he is haunted by a madman’s vow to destroy anyone he loves. When his hunt for the enemy leads to Everleigh’s Auction Rooms, he compels Lilah to help him. But one tempting touch may be their undoing—for what Kit needs threatens all Lilah holds dear, and losing her may destroy Kit.

Fresh Fiction Book Subscription Box Review – July 2015 Bag

This box also comes with book swag each month. For July, I received this Sabrina Jeffries reusable bag, plus some pens, post-its, a lollipop and a screen cleaner:

Fresh Fiction Book Subscription Box Review – July 2015 Swag

Verdict: Usually Fresh Fiction only sends one paperback a month, so getting three books this month was a great surprise! Some of the books are later books in a series, but I’m guessing they are the kind you can pick up without reading the previous books. (Not sure if that applies to the Spider’s Trap book though).

Just based on book prices alone (sale prices from Amazon), this box has a value of $30. Factoring in the swag value, the box is even higher. I think that’s great for a book subscription box, and the best value box I’ve seen from Fresh Fiction so far.

What do you think of the July Fresh Fiction Box?

  1. Poor subscriber info security. I have been notified by Lifelock that my information has been seen on the “dark net” from No one from there notified me of a hacking incident…or was it just sold or traded? Hard to know. More difficult to trust.

  2. Jennifer Estep is great. Read the first few in the series. While there may be an underlying arc, most are standalone stories.

    • Good to know – thanks! 🙂
