There’s two sides to every love story. The how you fell in love, and the how you fell apart.
This is ours.
The cardinal rule of friendship is you don’t mess with your friend’s sister. That goes double when she’s his little sister.
It was just supposed to be fun. She wasn’t supposed to end up being the love of my life. And I definitely wasn’t supposed to break her heart.
Ainsley is a wedding dress designer. That should’ve been a warning that she’s a hopeless romantic. That should’ve clued me in that she believes love conquers all.
But there are some things that love can’t fix. I’m one of them.
She thinks love is the answer.
But love is the reason I let her go.
This is a standalone novel.

Will secrets from the past destroy their future or will old wounds finally heal, allowing her to love again?
When I first encountered Ford Donovan, I had no idea who he was…well, other than the obvious. Young, gorgeous, successful, smart. Did I mention young? If I did, it bears repeating. Ford Donovan was too young for me.
Let’s back up to how it all started. My best friend decided I needed to start dating again. So, without my knowledge, she set up a profile for me on a popular dating site–one that invited men ages twenty-one to twenty-seven to apply for a date. Those nicknamed Cunnilingus King were told they’d go straight to the top for consideration. The profile wasn’t supposed to go live. Another point that bears repeating–it wasn’t supposed to.
Nevertheless, that’s how I met Ford, and we started messaging. He made me laugh; yet I was adamant that because of his age, we could only be friends. But after weeks of wearing me down, I finally agreed to one date only–my first after twenty years of being with my high school sweetheart. I knew it couldn’t last, but I was curious about him.
Though, you know what they say…curiosity kills the cat.
My legs wobbled walking into the restaurant.
Ford was seated at the bar. When he turned around, he took my breath away.
His sexy smile nearly melted my panties.
But…he looked so familiar.
As I got closer I realized why.
He was the son of the neighbor at our family’s summer home.
The boy next door.
Only now…he was all man.
I hadn’t seen him in years.
I left the restaurant and planned to put the entire crazy thing behind me.
Which I did. Until summer came.
And guess who decided to use his family’s summer home this year?

Her life is the complete opposite of what he desires.
So, why can’t they keep their hands off each other?
Forrest Nash is a smug know-it-all. With his brains, ridiculous good looks and penchant for disobeying the laws of both the police and the dark web, Fawn Hill’s resident genius is cockier than any man Penelope Briggs has ever encountered. It doesn’t help that their six-year age difference makes him completely ineligible in her eyes. Add in the fact that he doesn’t want marriage or babies, and that should eliminate him from the dating pool forever. But it doesn’t mean she can’t sleep with him. Once. Or twice. Or ten times.

Penelope Briggs is one bossy, obnoxious woman. With three young children, a calendar full of school drop-offs and sports, and enough emotional baggage to fill an airplane, this widow is definitely not what Forrest Nash is looking for. And yet, he can’t get enough of the maddening bombshell. But as their hook-ups become a constant, so does his involvement in Penelope’s life. The things he swore he never wanted, love and kids, seem to be the only things on his mind.

What started as a convenient friends-with-benefits situation is quickly growing wings. Even if both parties are trying hard to ignore the flutter.

HOLY MOTHER OF ALL PLOT TWISTS! Just when I thought I was used to Aly Martinez’ very own brand of book-voodoo, she ends up delivering one of the most unexpected, mind-blowing stories I have ever come across. Their paths first crossed in the middle of one of the most terrifying moments of their young lives—a moment that changed them both irrevocably—but when they meet again years later, all too many lies and secrets risk keeping them apart forever. It had me on the edge of my seat, with my Kindle in a death grip beginning to end, absolutely loving every single second of this crazy, exhilarating rollercoaster ride of a story.
Known for her emotional, character-driven romances that give us all the feels, Devney Perry strikes again with a tale that is heartbreaking in its candour and brave in its intent, yet somehow incredibly romantic through and through. And with two very real people at its heart—grappling with obstacles that speak to anyone who’s ever felt the bitter sting of failure and regret in love—this is the kind of book you hope you never forget. Even as your tears keep blurring the pages in front of you.
A wild one-night stand between two strangers was all it was ever supposed to be, but when they see each other again, he ends up being her son’s new math teacher, and she is knocked up! When Emma Chase’s newest romance came out in audio first and I realised that there was even a surprise pregnancy scenario in it, I knew I had to make an exception and finally listen to an audiobook. And two things ended up happening—I fell in love with audiobooks AND I became obsessed with Zachary Webber’s voice. I listened to this book every chance I got, loving these characters, their story, Emma Chase’s trademark prose that always makes me smile like a goof cover to cover, and I knew within a few chapters that this would become my new fave book of hers. With the perfect balance of emotion, steam, and laugh-out-loud moments, this book is truly the full package, and I already cannot wait to listen to it again.
I’ve never read a Tessa Bailey book I did not love, and her newest Romantic Comedy knocked my socks off. It’s a fake relationship scenario where the heroine has been crushing on the hero all her life, but he’s never seen her as anything other than his best friend’s kid sister. As they enter a fake relationship arrangement that benefits them both in different ways, they pretend to be in love for the whole world to see, but soon there’s nothing fake about their feelings or how much they desire each other. SO SO sexy and even angsty at times, this was a book I read in a single sitting, and I loved every mouthwatering second of it.
Set in the Alaskan wilderness, and featuring a silver fox attorney and a hot pilot, this story had me glued to the pages from the get-go. It’s a slow-burning kind of romance where the author takes her time developing the connection between the leads, and when they finally get together, the results are explosive. There’s an age gap element, a single dad one, too, and the writing is simply wonderful. Can’t recommend it highly enough!
One of the things I love the most about Mia Sheridan’s writing is how unique her stories always are, and this BEAUTIFUL book is no exception. A meticulously multilayered tale of survival, courage, and hope, every part of this story is heartfelt and powerful, and with the intricate mystery interwoven into every single page, I couldn’t put this book down for a single second. It all begins with a double murder in small town Montana, but the story quickly escalates into SO much more. A must-read!
