Sometimes you just want a good book. Not a good series, just a book. I like standalones. Sometimes more than books that are part of a series. I want to fall into a book and once it’s over, it’s over. The end. No waiting for the next book, no what happens to so and so, no unanswered questions. No cliffhangers. Just- damn, that was a good book.
SO , I compiled a list of standalones that are all RAW approved. I have read every single one of them and rated them a 3.5 or higher. I would read them again if I had the time. Some of them, I have read again. And again. Some of them you just need to experience.
These are in no particular order. I started my list off of the top of my head and just before it exploded; I went to my Goodreads shelves and poked around and then continued my list. Am I missing a standalone that is a MUST read? Then comment away and tell me all about them. We love recommendations, doesn’t everyone?
Painted Faces by L.H. Cosway is definitely unconventional, but one that I truly enjoyed! Never thought I would find myself lusting after a cross dresser before, but I did! You will too!
Never Have I Ever by August Clearwing is over 400 pages of awesome. Plot twists, sexy, dark. This book covers all the bases.
