  1. I think I was familiar with 3 of those couples, ok maybe five. #facepalm

    1. That's ok. I only know 2 couples from J9's list :)

    2. Most of mine are MM so if you don't read that genre you wouldn't be familiar. Sorry :)

  2. Great lists! More books to add to my TBR list! I've actually *just* started the BDB series!!!

    1. Hope you enjoy the BDB series! The first book is probably my favorite. We'll see if that holds true once I read Lover Mine ;)

    2. I'm a little jealous that you'll get to be a first-timer with the BDB series!

  3. Ty and Zane. Mac and Barrons. Those are the only two I come up on only one cup of coffee... Great lists, girls! smiles...

    1. Mac and Barrons? Tell!! Who's author? I need to know! :)

    2. J9 - You haven't read the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning?

    3. Readers LOVE that series but if you ask me, a bitter reader, I'd say no. LOL I have some beef with the 5th book, Shadowfever.

    4. WHAT?! You've not read Fever. Stop what you're going and start Darkfever NOW.

    5. I never started that series either. So much hype around the Fever series and I'm not sure it is going to live up to it.

  4. Agreed with:
    Gin and Owen
    Ty and Zane
    X and JM
    Cat and Bones

    I'll add:
    Mac and JZB
    Vlad and Leila
    Mercy and Adam
    Kate and Curran
