I’m in love with a man who tried to kill me. At least that’s what they tell me . . .
Six weeks ago, paramedics found me unconscious in my own home. Beaten. Bruised. Hardly breathing. When I woke up, I couldn’t remember the last three years or anything about my life in Jackson Harbor. They tell me my fiancé, Colton McKinley, is on the run for what he did to me. They tell me I’m safer if I stay away.
I don’t care if my memories ever come back. I want nothing to do with those missing years . . . until a sexy stranger with angry eyes shows up on my doorstep and demands I stop ignoring him.
Levi Jackson is my fiancé’s best friend, but seeing him sparks something inside me. As the truth unravels in my mind, I know they’re wrong about Colton. My own secrets are far more dangerous than the man I was engaged to.
I return to Jackson Harbor to search for answers and find myself running from a faceless boogeyman and seeking refuge in Levi’s arms. And in his bed.
I can’t deny my feelings for Levi. But as the pile of lies between us grows, I realize that sometimes the truth can’t set us free. Sometimes, it’s the very thing that can destroy us.
This is the third book in The Boys of Jackson Harbor series of interconnected standalone novels.

It’s not long before the jig is up, and Julian discovers Ellen’s true identity. However, he has a proposition. If she really wants to pretend, he can introduce her to a world where she can be anyone she wants.

She never expected The Kiss to change her life forever and introduce her to Gavin: tattooed, gorgeous, and spontaneous enough to ask her out seconds after the blindfolds came off.
For a year, they danced between friendship and romance—until Penny made The Decision that forced them to settle for friendship. Now, fourteen years later, both of their lives are about to radically change—and it’s his turn to decide what will become of their once-in-a-lifetime connection.

Latest Top Recommendations
To me, no one writes intoxicating college sports romances like Elle Kennedy, and her newest novel is unputdownable. A tale of opposites attracting between a ‘popular girl’ and the geeky hockey player who shies away from the limelight any chance he gets, the chemistry between the leads is only outmatched by how well the author gets in her characters’ heads and makes the reader connect with them. A must-read!
Some books plant themselves in your heart from the very first page, the unexpected beauty of them taking your breath away time and time again, and this book owned my heart from the get-go. An incredibly moving, exquisitely written tale of a young woman traveling to Alaska to reconnect with her estranged father, only to find true love there, too—there are so many aspects of this stellar story that moved me deeply, and it didn’t take long for me to KNOW this would become one of my ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE BOOKS EVER.
A tour de force novel that has everything Kristen Ashley’s fans have come to expect from this remarkable storyteller, this latest instalment in the Chaos series is everything I hoped it would be, and so much more. A tale of unrequited love, of an enduring love, a steadfast love, a selfless love—Hound and Keely’s story begs to be read more than once—each page loaded with detail and depth, and each character searing and beautiful. Every time I finish reading a new Chaos novel, I have a new favourite, but Hound and Keely’s love story had me at the first line.
There are some stories that move you SO deeply and SO unexpectedly, that you end up shedding buckets of tears in the end, feeling too much all at once. As I read the last few pages of this beautiful book, I could barely see the words through all my tears, because NOTHING prepared me for the sheer emotion running through this stunning, wrenching, gem of a novel. This is the story of an anonymous epidemic affecting so many families, and one couple’s struggle to save their crumbling marriage from divorce as life continues to deny them the one thing they long for the most. I don’t know how Colleen Hoover manages to create such authentic, heartfelt stories time and time again, leaving us utterly breathless and incoherent in their aftermath, but I do know that this book is one of my absolute favourites. EVER.
Regardless of the genre she chooses to tackle, Sarina Bowen’s superb storytelling prowess never fails to enthral, so it’s no surprise that her Young Adult debut would be something truly special. A perceptive coming-of-age tale that explores the complex entanglements of family, love, and identity on the verge of adulthood, this story felt like a breath of fresh air to me, capturing so vividly the highs and lows of a young woman’s search for truth and affection in the aftermath of a great loss. Some books are love at first read, and this was one of them for me.
I didn’t know how much I had missed Emma Chase’s writing until I caught myself grinning like a fool page after page from how insanely happy this book was making me. The ultimate feel-good read, this second chance romance had it all—humour, sizzle, emotion, characters you can’t help but love—and it didn’t just warm my heart, it made it smile. Chase’s prose is crisp and effortless, her talent as always shining through the brightest in her male point of view, giving us a story that is so delightful, I am recommending it unreservedly to anyone looking for the perfect reading escape.
