Happy Monday Tuesday! Another Valentine’s Day may have come and gone but our romantic reads are still here! It’s the final week of our Valentine’s Reads promotion and this week, we’re bringing you Me You Us by Aaron Karo, Compulsion by Martina Boone, Boys of Summer by Jessica Brody, and Never Too Late by A. Destiny. Plus some of last week’s reads are still available for one more week: Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger, Last Year’s Mistake by Gina Ciocca, and Lessons in Love by A. Destiny.

For some NON-romance, we’ve got extended excerpts of two recent releases: The Education of Margot Sanchez from Lilliam Rivera just went on sale today (2/21) and has been described as Pretty in Pink comes to South Bronx, definitely check it out! Then, we’ve really been digging Shaun David Hutchinson’s latest, At the Edge of the Universe, so much so that we’re keeping the extended excerpt up for one more week so that more of you can read it! If you need convincing, take a look at Riveted board member Diego’s 9 Reasons you need to read it.
