Down the TBR Hole was originally created by Lost in a Story! The point of it is to help cull your reading lists down, or maybe push higher anticipated releases up on your TBR! And maybe you all can help me along the way, and tell me if you’ve loved or hated any of these!

How it works:
➽ Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
➽ Order on ascending date added.
➽ Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books - I do about 15-20 because my list is HUGE
➽ Read the synopses of the books
➽ Decide: keep it or should it go?

Cheeky (Imperfect Love Kindle World) by Natasha Madison
Avg rating: 4.12/Release: June 4, 2017

A Vegas fling between with the best friend's sister. Love that trope! Well, I don't remember adding this one and I can't find a purchase link. So...
Verdict: delete 
The Watcher by Bella Jewel
Avg rating: 3.96/Release: May 30, 2017

I haven't had the best of luck when it comes to this author. I've tried her books, time and time again, but I haven't found one to love. This seems to be a romantic suspense novel, so I'm hoping it works for me.
Verdict: keep
Cheater's Regret (Curious Liaisons #2) by Rachel Van Dyken
Avg rating: 4.13/Release: May 23, 2017

Let's get one thing straight... I don't like cheaters. I don't like seeing them, reading about them, or letting them live. Okay, the last one went about far, but you get where I'm going here. The only reason this one made it to my tbr is that the 'cheating' was a kiss. A kiss that had a reason behind it. And I NEED to know that reason.
Verdict: keep
Hot Cop by Laurelin Paige & Sierra Simone
Avg rating: 4.08/Release: June 13, 2017

Stories about women wanting no-strings babies bother me. Babies are a huge responsibility and they need guidance. Giving a man the right to be a deadbeat isn't cute. However, I'm still willing to give this a chance.
Verdict: keep
The Last Guy by Ilsa Madden-Mills & Tia Louise
Avg rating: 3.99/Release: June 11, 2017

There's just something really hot about an office romance. I'm familiar with Tia Louise, but I've only read one book from the other author. Since I enjoy this trope, I'll give this try.
Verdict: keep
Salvaged (Saints of Denver #4) by Jay Crownover
Avg rating: 4.29/Release: June 20, 2017

Holy crap! Have you seen how expensive the kindle edition to this book is? Ah well, that's not important because I haven't even read the first book of the series and I'd rather read in order. Especially with an author I'm unfamiliar with.
Verdict: delete
Hooking Up (Shacking Up #2) by Helena Hunting
Avg rating: 4.20/Release: November 7, 2017

I haven't read the first book of the series, but it's Helena Hunting. I'm not a fan of cheating and I'd rather the heroine hadn't JUST gotten married, but I guess her new husband cheating opens up her options.
Verdict: keep
Dirty Filthy Rich Love (Dirty Duet #2) by Laurelin Paige
Avg rating: 4.15/Release: September 11, 2017

I already talked about my feelings about this duet. I don't like the heroine and I know my feelings will only make me review this book badly. So bye-bye Dirty Duet.
Verdict: delete
Dating the Billionaire by Poppy Dunne
Avg rating: 3.93/Release: July 12, 2017

I've enjoyed books from this author. This one is about a matchmaker finding love for herself. It sounds sexy and I'm interested enough to try.
Verdict: keep
All About the D by Lex Martin & Leslie McAdam
Avg rating: 4.16/Release: May 2, 2017

I've never read anything from either of these authors but that title definitely caught my attention. Yeah, I'm a freaking perv and I'm proud of it!
Verdict: keep
Bane (Sinners of Saint #4) by LJ Shen
Avg rating: 4.41/Release: May 10, 2018

I've loved all the alphaholes I've met in this series, my favorite still being Vicious, but after meeting this dude in another of the books, I do want to see what his story is about. As far as I remember, he was part Asian and the cover doesn't depict that, but I could be wrong.
Verdict: keep
One is a Promise (Tangled Lies #1) by Pam Godwin
Avg rating: 4.29/Release: June 5, 2017 (currently FREE on Amazon)

I added this as part of a giveaway because I LOVE this author, but I can't read it. I am not a fan of love triangle stories. AT ALL!! It's one of the reasons why I can't read much YA because it's a common trope. So yeah, pass.
Verdict: delete
His Girl (The HIS Collection #5) by Aria Cole
Avg rating: 3.74/Release: June 14, 2017

This one came as a recommendation from Carol - Goodreads Addict because I was looking for an easy second chance romance. Guy and girl are small town sweethearts. He goes away to become a star quarterback. He gets injured and then he's back. I hope it really is as easy as it sounds.
Verdict: keep
Scored (Scored #1) by Marquita Valentine
Avg rating: 3.96/Release: June 20, 2017 (currently FREE on Amazon)

The title and cover of this book have changed. It's now called Scoring Her Heart and I've never read from this author before. It's free so I guess I'll try it.
Verdict: keep
Becoming A Vincent (The Wild Ones #1) by C.M. Owens
Avg rating: 4.35/Release: June 19, 2017

I've never read from this author before but she has been recommended to me repeatedly. I think it's about time I did something about that. I love friends-to-lovers romances and this one sounds not only cute, but funny too.
Verdict: keep
Deklan by Shay Savage
Avg rating: 3.76/Release: June 20, 2017

I enjoyed quite a few books from this author and I'm hoping to add this one to the list. I love mafia romance books. This one is about a mafia princess set to marry a mafia prince, but ends up with the henchman. Let's get it!
Verdict: keep
Dear Bridget, I Want You by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland
Avg rating: 4.14/Release: September 18, 2017

A doctor-nurse romance. How sweet! Or maybe hot? With these authors, you never know. I'm prepared for a bit of angst and plenty of swoon-worthy romance. I hope?
Verdict: keep
Amnesia (Amnesia #1) by Cambria Hebert
Avg rating: 3.99/Release: June 13, 2017

After reading a ton of amazing reviews for this book, I had to add it... despite knowing that it ends in a huge cliffy. I don't think there's a lot of books out there that deal with amnesia and I happen to like these stories. The last one I read was Stylo Fantome's Muscle Memory, which was awesome. So of course I want to find out if this one is awesome for me too.
Verdict: keep
Dirty (Damaged #1) by Michelle Horst
Avg rating: 3.89/Release: June 28, 2017

I can't find a link to purchase this book. I wanted to read it bcause it's a dirty and dark romance but I can't 😭😭😭
Verdict: delete
Writing Mr. Right by T.K. Leigh
Avg rating: 4.22/Release: June 26, 2017

I actually have this one sitting on my kindle. I haven't read a book from this author for quite some time. I really like books about authors and I like this author's writing, so win.
Verdict: keep
