Paranormal romances are so rarely my jam these days, having read little else during my twenties and thirties, but Ali Hazelwood’s brand of sharp-witted, lovelorn shenanigans is always hard to resist, even more so when her new marriage of convenience romp happens to be of the blood-sucking and howling variety. She takes the star-crossed lovers, fated mates tropes to new heights in this spicy, unputdownable tale of two mortal enemies who agree to marry in order to uphold the peace between their species. I loved the story, the characters, the dialogues, even all the drawn-out miscommunication angst, but Ali Hazelwood had me at knotting, and I’m (k)not embarrassed to admit it. (K)not even a little.

You know when you find yourself reading a book so compulsively that it ends up following you into your dreams? This deliciously decadent tale of desire, love, and obsession was that book for me. Zachary Sun might be one of America’s most eligible bachelors, but he is also one of its most unattainable ones. Famous for his rigid, polished, and emotionless personality, Zach’s life is an impenetrable fortress of his own making, until Farrow Ballantine breaks into it (quite literally), and turns his entire existence upside down. Headstrong and unruly, Farrow is the complete antithesis of the cold-hearted businessman she cannot help but goad any chance she gets, neither of them realising that she would become the very antidote to Zach’s demons. As their relationship changes, a man who’s spent most of his life being averse to touch transforms into a hedonistic, possessive, and demanding lover who shamelessly pursues a woman he knows he cannot keep. Because Zachary Sun is engaged to be married, and that woman is not Farrow Ballantine. A modern-day Cinderella story that I couldn’t put down.

As the romantic trials and tribulations of the twenty-somethings have begun to feel to me more and more like science fiction than a distant memory I can draw from, it takes a lot for me these days to connect with a college romance, especially one with a sports-related storyline. Yet Elle Kennedy’s stories always manage to not only pull me in almost instantly, but also to leave me craving for more. It’s only right that we should kick off a next generation Off-Campus spin-off series with the story of the daughter of one of Elle’s most beloved couples—Garrett Graham and Hannah Wells from The Deal. Gigi Graham is desperate to step out of her famous father’s shadow, and she knows that nothing would help her achieve that goal more than winning Olympic gold, something her father never did. To help her increase her chances of being called to join the women’s national hockey team, she enlists the help of her ex boyfriend’s nemesis and new teammate—Luke Ryder—to give her pointers on her game. But the more time Gigi and Ryder spend together, the more the chemistry between them begins to sizzle. They begin to date in secret, knowing all too well that every stolen moment they have together puts at risk friendships old and new. But their bond and commitment to one another only grow, and when their secret is finally revealed, it had me SCREAMING. A spicy, engaging, passionate love story that packs a punch where you least expect it.

I haven’t read a book that has touched my soul, like this one, in a very long time, but then again, Abby Jimenez continues to prove she can do no wrong. Set in the same world as Part of Your World, this is the story of two emergency room doctors who, after a bevy of wrong first impressions, become each other’s safe place at a time in their lives when they’re both feeling adrift and alone. Jimenez just knows how to create characters that make you feel like you’d step in front of a moving train for them, characters that embody a certain type of strong that is selfless and kind, characters that linger in our minds long after the book ends. Equal parts heart and heartbreak, yet every romantic’s dream come true, this is Abby Jimenez at her best—making us want to live in her stories forever.

Rumor

There are moments in life when you make a decision. Accept who you are. What you have become. This was one of those times…

The fairytale I thought I’d found had become a nightmare so quickly after I said, “I do.” Which was the reason I ran when I had the chance. Not thinking about the consequences. Just knowing I had to get free before it was my life that was taken.

I never expected to end up finding a haven. A place where people were willing to help me hide. It was as if I had walked into my own perfect daydream.

King

“Don’t believe every pretty face you meet, sweets. You should know by now that’s a terrible f——g  idea.”

She was my job. I was to make her feel safe and do whatever I had to in order to make sure she didn’t run. Underneath the abused and broken exterior, there was a fighter. It was in her eyes. I lived for the moments when she let me see that spark.

I had been headed straight to Hell years before I met Rumor, but letting her fall in love with me was going to reserve me a room in the darkest pit available. One day soon, she was going to find out I was the monster she was running from and the family she had come to trust was the mafia that had killed her husband.

This is the first book in the Slay duet, part of the all-new Georgia Smoke series, and set in the same world as the Smoke and Judgement series. It is not a standalone novel.

Thirty-four-year-old Wren Waters believes that if you pay attention, the universe will send you exactly what you need. But her worldview shatters when the universe delivers two life-altering blows she didn’t see coming, and all she wants to do is put the whole heartbreaking mess behind her. No one is more surprised than Wren when she discovers that geocaching—the outdoor activity of using GPS to look for hidden objects—is the only thing getting her out of bed and out of her head. She decides that a weeklong solo quest geocaching in Oregon is exactly what she needs to take back control of her life.

Enter Marshall Hendricks, a psychologist searching for distraction as he struggles with a life-altering blow of his own. Though Wren initially rebuffs Marshall’s attempt at hiker small talk, she’s beyond grateful when he rescues her from a horrifying encounter farther down the trail. In the interest of safety, Marshall suggests partnering up to look for additional caches. Wren’s no longer quite so trusting of the universe—or men in general—but her inner circle might argue that a smart, charismatic psychologist isn’t the worst thing the universe could place in her path.

What begins as a platonic road trip gradually blossoms into something deeper, and the more Wren learns about Marshall, the more she wants to know. Now all she can do is hope that the universe gets it right this time.

GRUMPY/SUNSHINE + FIREFIGHTER

What happened to my predictable life?

I had a stable life as a fire captain in Seattle, married to one of my best friends and raising two awesome kids. Now, my kids are grown, and my marriage is toast. I’m solidly past forty and back in my tiny hometown of Mount Hope, Oregon, filling in as a firefighter. My future is one big question mark keeping me up at night.

Also keeping me up? The short-order cook at Honey’s Hotcake Hut.

Denver might be close to my age, but we’re total opposites. The former rock roadie runs from stability, never puts down roots, and lives for the moment. Point in case, we barely speak before he invites me into his shower.

I’ve never been with a man, but my fresh start has me trying all sorts of new things—including Denver’s shower.

Our future? Hopeless.

Denver doesn’t do repeats, but I convince him to have a fling since we’re both in Mount Hope short-term. The more time we spend together, the deeper our friendship and bond grows. Our time together outside of the bedroom, reveals a caring side to the grumpy cook. Even better, my sunshine-y optimism softens him like butter.

Should a fling give me these deep feelings? Nope.

Worse, the feelings are mutual. Big decisions loom for both our futures, and our time together grows short. I might have Denver’s heart, but his trust is far harder to win. He’s the answer to all my question marks, and I need him to believe in us. Can I convince him to give our love a chance?

So, when fellow writer Riley O’Connell invites Becca to the charming Irish countryside, she can’t pack her bags fast enough, even though they have never met.

But happily-ever-after isn’t quite so simple.

And Riley is not a sensitive female romance novelist like Becca assumed. No, he is definitely a man. A hot, six-foot tall, Irish man.

ENEMIES TO LOVERS + SMALL TOWN

Ruby Rose declared me the enemy before I had a chance to defend myself.
I may be an attorney, but this girl had appointed herself judge and jury.
And I’d never minded a good verbal sparring.
There was a comfort in going to battle against the evil queen.
Maybe it was just the recognition of one damaged soul to another.
But the more we fought—the more I craved her.
Until our arguing turned into a bit of a wager.
One I was determined to win.
One time. Sixty seconds. A secret only we would share.
I’d work my magic and she’d declare me the winner.
I’d gloat, she’d sulk—that was my plan.
She was determined to prove me wrong.
But from the minute we crossed the line, there was no turning back.
She was so far under my skin I couldn’t think straight.
Feeling things that I’d never felt before was one thing.
But knowing the clock was ticking was another.
Ruby Rose may have given me more than sixty seconds, but she wasn’t offering forever.
And now my world doesn’t work without her in it.
But how do I convince her to stay, when she already has one foot out the door?

How we met: I got a black eye.
Where we met: At a wedding.
Our first date: We’re not dating. Cross my heart.

True story: Jack Hamilton gave me a black eye when we met. He didn’t throw a punch, but he did open a door right into my face. On the same day I was a bridesmaid in my brother’s wedding.

My head spun when I took a good look at him. Maybe it was running full-force into a door, but maybe it’s because he’s melt-your-panties H-O-T. Oh, and he’s a hotshot firefighter.

But I don’t date, and I don’t ever intend to fall in love. It’s all so simple. Until the chemistry that’s hot enough to melt me nearly does. Maybe Jack can help with that, what with the whole firefighting thing.

TIME TRAVEL ROMANCE

Setting aside grief from the fallout of the second World War and putting her energy into curating an upcoming show critical to her career as the Keeper of the Metalworks at London’s renowned Victoria and Albert Museum, Jeannine Maycroft stumbles upon a unique collection of jewel-framed miniature eye portraits—a brilliant romantic device and clandestine love token of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

One piece among the assembly intrigues her more than all the others: a twilight-blue man’s eye framed by opals shimmering with enchanting flashes of fiery color. But the beauty is just the beginning. Not only is the painting a self-portrait of one of her favorite Pre-Raphaelite artists, Ashe Lloyd Lewis, but the brooch itself is a portal eight decades into the past.

Despite being cast into an era she was never meant to be in, Jeannine and Ashe develop an immediate and passionate bond, complicated by the undeniable fact that she does not belong in 1867, and the disaster about to destroy her family and reputation in her time.

Striving to live a dual life and dangerously straddling two time periods, Jeannine fights to protect her career and her father from scandal in the present while desperately trying to save her lover’s life in the past.

You know when you find yourself reading a book so compulsively that it ends up following you into your dreams? This deliciously decadent tale of desire, love, and obsession was that book for me. Zachary Sun might be one of America’s most eligible bachelors, but he is also one of its most unattainable ones. Famous for his rigid, polished, and emotionless personality, Zach’s life is an impenetrable fortress of his own making, until Farrow Ballantine breaks into it (quite literally), and turns his entire existence upside down. Headstrong and unruly, Farrow is the complete antithesis of the cold-hearted businessman she cannot help but goad any chance she gets, neither of them realising that she would become the very antidote to Zach’s demons. As their relationship changes, a man who’s spent most of his life being averse to touch transforms into a hedonistic, possessive, and demanding lover who shamelessly pursues a woman he knows he cannot keep. Because Zachary Sun is engaged to be married, and that woman is not Farrow Ballantine. A modern-day Cinderella story that I couldn’t put down.
