GRUMPY/SUNSHINE + SMALL TOWN

I want her out of my town and out of my head.
Trouble is, she’s made it perfectly clear she’s not going anywhere. And her spree of minor infractions—who runs a yoga class without a license?—is hitting dangerously close to home. Her latest protest has her chained to a tree on the boundary of my family’s resort. The last thing we need is bad press ruining the short tourism season when the resort is already one bad month away from bankruptcy.
I’ll do whatever it takes to save Starlight Cove. Even if that means handcuffing Luna to my bed.

For twenty years, Seth Kincaid has kept his visits to his home town brief. He’s not avoiding January Howe, exactly—he’s giving his high school girlfriend space. But that distance evaporates when she takes over her family’s marina for the summer. Which means every time he flies his floatplane into the harbour, she’s there, and the temptation to fall into her sunny smile and forget about the past is stronger than ever. He can’t resist lending a hand, though. Not when she needs the help.

The last thing she needs is the dangerous risk of pretending a fling with Seth could be simple. Except the grown man version of the boy she once dated is…perfectly easy. He helps with the kids, no questions asked, and then once they’re asleep, satisfies her in ways her eighteen-year-old self couldn’t have imagined.

The hottest college football safety in the nation just asked me to be his fake girlfriend.
And I just asked him to take my virginity.
Clay Johnson has the abs of Adonis and the deadly smirk of the devil, himself. There’s hardly a day he’s not headline material during football season, and never a day he isn’t a bullseye target for every girl on campus.
He used to be the easiest of all the players for me to wrangle as the Public Relations Coordinator, but after a nasty breakup with his high school sweetheart, he’s a mess.
And a complete pain in my ass.

I help him make his ex jealous.
All by pretending to be in a relationship.

And I’m ready to embrace it.

Latest Top Recommendations
I can’t remember the last time a book shook me so much that it took me a week to process all the emotions coursing through me, but once I did, I couldn’t stop talking about it. Tackling one of the most challenging tropes in Romance—cheating—this is the kind of story that pushes the rosy-coloured glasses right off your nose and forces you to truly understand the characters’ perspectives, while silencing your own preconceived notions and judgements. The lead characters are married and we meet them at the very moment when one of them is caught in adultery by the other. What follows is an emotional, at times painfully raw tale of two people who find themselves having to not only re-examine what they thought they knew about each other, but also of themselves and of their own needs and wants. It’s a story of forgiveness and redemption as much as it is a story of self-discovery, and every bit of it is done just right. Without glorifying or trivialising cheating in any way, Alison Rhymes shows that she is not afraid to get her hands dirty when it comes to exploring sensitive or complex topics in relationships, doing so carefully and thoughtfully, and this is where the novel truly shines beginning to end.
An astonishing tale of family ties, loss, and forbidden love comes alive through Jennifer Hartmann’s sublime writing and deeply human characters in a novel that is so beautifully written and thought out, you’ll want to reread it almost as soon as you reach the end. Hartmann compels with her every sentence, capturing the essence of growing up and the warmth of enduring love ever so perfectly, and even with a steady onslaught of tragedies that the characters must face over the years, she weaves a triumphant tapestry of their lives, thread by painstaking thread.
Karen Booth takes us back to the beauty circles of Manhattan with another ‘over-40 romance’ that shows us it’s never too late to find true love in life in It’s a Widow Thing. And this time around, a heartbroken widow finds herself smitten with a merciless flirt living down the hall from her, but while she’s not looking for a serious love connection, he is at a stage in his life where he’s finally ready to settle down, and his gorgeous, whip-smart neighbour is the only woman he wants a forever with. A heartwarming, low-angst story of two people moving at different speeds in their relationship, but travelling steadily towards the same dream. An absolute joy to read!
The third instalment in the Adair Family series takes us back to the Scottish Highlands with the much awaited story of Arrochar “Arro” Adair and Mac Galbraith. Arro has been in love with her brother’s best friend and head of security for longer than she wishes to admit, but their thirteen-year age gap has always stood in the way of them becoming more than just friends. Now a woman in her thirties, Arro can no longer see any issue with their difference in age, but when she makes her intentions known, she discovers that the only man she’s ever loved might not love her that way in return. Or there could be something else keeping them apart… I absolutely loved Samantha Young’s meticulous attention to detail when developing the characters, making us understand the reasons behind their actions, and slowly building up this age-gap romance into the kind of story that stays with you far past the last page. And the subtle thread of unrequited love puts the angsty cherry on top that I always hope to find. This series only keeps getting better and better.
