This Week's IndieReader Top 10 Bestsellers


For the second week running, Sydney Landon’s Weekends Required sits atop IndieReader’s Top 10 Indie Bestsellers list. Make the most out of your last trip to the beach this holiday weekend with this fun—and steamy—office romance about a workaholic executive and his sassy, sexy assistant. Shifting into the number two spot, up one from last week, is Abbi Glines’ bucolic While It Lasts, a classic case of opposites attract. And debuting on the list in the third slot is Sarah’s Surrender by Lynda Chance, featuring a broody rancher who sets his sights on the eponymous heroine. Love is in the air, Indie fans.
