THE WHAT IF GUY by Lauren Blakely
Release Date: July 24th

 

Cover Designer: Helen Williams

It sounded like the stuff of romantic legends — that whole “their eyes locked across a crowded room” moment that turned into more.

I didn’t believe it. . . . until it happened to me.

Fine, the charming, clever, sexy-as-sin guy in the tailored suit was only trying to buy the same Snoopy lunchbox (as a gift!), but still, our eyes totally locked, and my lady parts definitely tingled as we vied for the prize.

Naturally, I did what any badass business woman would do. Negotiated for the lunchbox, then found my what-if guy online and made plans to see him the next night.

One night only — that was the deal we made.

But one fantastic night had us both changing our minds in the morning. And making plans for another.

Until I walked into the office to learn he just bought my company.

And here’s the biggest rule of romantic legends — no matter what, don’t bang your boss.

Especially if you’re already falling for him.

 

 

THE WHAT IF GUY is a sexy standalone you can escape into! The other standalone romance in The Guys Who Got Away series include Dear Sexy Ex-Boyfriend!

The First Score by Amie Knight Cover Reveal and Exclusive Excerpt

Coming May 28th from Amie Knight, THE FIRST SCORE, an all-new best friend’s brother, new adult sports romance! I’m thrilled to share the gorgeous cover and an exclusive excerpt with you today!

 

There was something about that first score, and not just on the football field.

I loved all of life’s firsts, which was why I’d been saving mine for one girl, my older sister’s best friend—Hazel Jones.

She was tough and sarcastic with walls around her heart as tall as a football stadium, but I knew she was the one for me.

Desperate times called for desperate measures and I’d have done anything to make her mine.

Like create a fake online persona.
Lie about my age.
Pretend I wasn’t some naive virgin.

And catfish the hell out of the love of my life.

EXCERPT:

Ollie

I typically wasn’t a rule breaker or a line crosser, if you will. I was as straight as an arrow. Sweet as a Georgia peach in the Summer. Okay, okay, maybe that was taking it too far. But one thing I knew for sure? I was a rule follower. A people pleaser.

But my sister’s best friend, Hazel? She made me want to break all of the rules. When she was around, the only person I wanted to please was myself. In so, so many ways.

She made me cross lines. She made me do stupid, stupid things. But that’s what happened when you were in love.

And I’d been in love with Hazel since I could remember.

Hell, one of my very first memories ever was of the first time I saw her. I’d heard a small knock on the door of our home and taken off to answer it before my mom could. And there she stood on our porch. A dilapidated stuffed bunny hanging from one hand and a small duffle in the other. Her worn care bears shirt was stained and her too small dingy jeans had a giant whole in the knee. Her mess of brown hair was piled high in a knot on her head. And her big brown eyes. Well, they were sad.

“Well, are you gonna let me in?” Her pretty pink lips had asked and I poked my head out of the door, glancing behind her long enough to see an old blue beater pull out of our driveway without so much as a finger wave of a goodbye.

“Where’s your clothes?”

My head snapped back to her, the car long forgotten because all of a sudden I was feeling mighty chilly. I leaned against the doorjamb as I looked down at myself, unashamed of the fact that I was only wearing a pair of tighty whities, as my sister Scarlett liked to call them.

I gave the sad-eyed girl a smile. “I’m letting ‘em breathe.”

I didn’t know what the hell I was saying. I was five. It was something my daddy said when my momma gave him a hard time when he walked around their bedroom in nothing but a towel around his waist.

Her face screwed up. “Let what breathe?”

“Oliver Knox, if you do not let that child in and go upstairs and make yourself presentable, you won’t be getting not one of those chocolate chip cookies you’ve been begging for all day.” My mother shewed me out of the way and grabbed the duffle bag from the girls hand. “Well, come on in, Hazel. Scarlett will be so excited you’re here.”

My mom gave me a death glare over Hazel’s head that had me flying for the stairs.

“Scarlett, Hazel’s here for y’alls sleepover!” My mom called, sweetly, like she just hadn’t threatened me with her green lasers.

I passed my sister on the way up much to my dismay.

“Lord, Ollie. Put on some dang clothes. You’re so embarrassing.” She rolled her eyes as she stomped down the stairs.

“I’m letting them breathe,” I called back, almost to the top.

She turned on the bottom step to look at me, her face red. “Stop saying that!”

“What’s the big deal?” I muttered, walking across the landing to my room, but deciding instead to stop and have one more peek at Hazel over the bannister that looked over the living room before I got dressed.

What I didn’t expect was for her to be looking at me, too. My momma and Scarlett were talking a mile a minute and helping Hazel put her things away but her eyes were firmly on mine. Feeling awkward all of a sudden, I did what any five-year-old boy in their underwear would do. I did a little jig and finished it off with a waggle of my eyebrows.

And that’s when it happened. Her sad eyes lit up and her serious pink mouth tipped up at the ends in a barely there smile.

My little heart soared, so naturally I did my jig again followed by a bigger and better wag of my eyebrows before ending it with a slow twirl for effect.

A small giggle I knew belonged to Hazel made me smile before I heard thunderous voices of my redheaded sister and mother yell, “Oliver!”

I ran like my ass was on fire to my room, a huge grin on my face, my heart beating a thousand miles a minute. At the time, I thought it was the thrill of it all that made my heart feel that way.

But through the years, I slowly realized that the pounding feeling in my chest only came around when Hazel did. And God, did she come around. And lord, was it torture.

Because there was only one thing that I wanted to do, despite myself. I just wanted to make Hazel’s eye’s happy. I wanted to make her smile and it was no easy feat.

I didn’t know then what all of that meant, me wanting her to be happy. Me wanting to be around her all the time. But I did now. Boy, did I. And like I said, it made me want to do foolish things to be close to her. Stupid, crazy things.

Anything.

Everything.

And being a grown man, now, didn’t stop me from doing the dumbest thing yet.

Yeah, I’d crossed plenty of lines when it had come to Hazel. But nothing, and I mean nothing, compared to the day that I logged onto a gaming server that I knew Hazel liked to play on.

It was a hell of a bold move on my part and required more than a few rum and cokes and the desperation of a lifetime of love unrequited.

I then crossed even more lines. Lines that couldn’t be uncrossed.

I made a fake name.

I lied about my age.

I pretended that I wasn’t a naïve virgin.

And I catfished the hell out of the love of my life, my sister’s best friend.

Unforgettable by Melanie Harlow Blog Tour with Excerpt

UNFORGETTABLE, an all-new swoon-worthy not-to-be-missed second chance romance from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow, is out now!

Unforgettable - BT banner.jpg


“Holy SWOON! This is a sexy, small-town romance at its finest.”

~Claire Kingsley, Amazon Top 10 Bestselling Author

 

Unforgettable AMAZON

Back then, I had it all.

Wicked fastball. Killer instinct. Cocky grin. Full package.

(And believe me, I knew how to score.)

My senior year, I was a first round draft pick with a two-million-dollar signing bonus. Before I could even legally buy myself a beer, I made my Major League debut.

Point is, I was invincible.

Until one day I wasn’t.

After tanking my career—during the World Series, no less—the last thing I want to do is return to my hometown, where every jerk in a ball cap has an opinion about what went wrong with my arm. So when my sister drags me back to town for her wedding, I vow to get in and out of there as quickly as possible.

Then I run into April Sawyer.

In high school we were just friends, but I’d always wanted her, and I’d never forgotten her—the red hair, the incredible smile, the crazy, reckless thing we did in the back of my truck the night we said goodbye. It’s been eighteen years, but one look at her and I feel like my old self again. I can still make her laugh, she can still take me down a notch, and when the chemistry between us explodes, it’s even hotter this time around—and I don’t want it to end.

But just when I think I’m ready to let go of the past and get back in the game, life throws me a curveball I never saw coming.

Unforgettable - Teaser 5 AN.jpg

EXCERPT:

“Baseball was the only thing I ever did that made my dad proud. Without it, what’s left?”

I swallowed hard. “How about the rest of your life? All the amazing things you’re going to do and be? Maybe you can’t see them yet, but I can.”

He turned around and looked at me. Took my face in his hands. “No one has ever seen me the way you do.”

I smiled. “Maybe no one ever bothered to look beyond the surface—I mean, you’re Tyler Shaw. The surface is pretty nice to look at.”

He kissed me hard then, and deep, his tongue penetrating my lips, his hands sliding into my hair. The kiss grew hotter as he moved me backward toward the bed, shoving his pants down, and lifting me onto the sheets.

“God, April,” he whispered as his mouth traveled down my throat and his hands roamed over my skin. “I want you so much. I want you so much it scares me.”

“Why?” I arched beneath his lips and tongue and teeth and palms and fingers as they moved over my body. I put my hands in his hair.

“Because I keep imagining this life with you, this life full of things I’ve never wanted before.”

“What kinds of things?” As much as I loved his dirty mouth, his sweet words were just as thrilling, and I wanted to hear them all.

“I want to share a bed with you every night. And wake up to you every morning. I want to make breakfast for you, see you in the stands at Central High baseball games, reach all the stuff in the high cupboards in the kitchen. I want to be the one you come home to.”

I smiled. “Don’t be scared. I want all those things too.”

“But what if I fuck it up?” He kissed his way up the center of my chest and braced himself above me. “What if I’m not good at it? What if I don’t deserve it?”

“Tyler.” I took his face in my hands. “You deserve it. Do you hear me? You deserve to be loved the way I’m going to love you.”

Then his mouth was crushing mine and we were pressed chest to chest, rolling sideways with our arms and legs tangled as we tried to get under each other’s skin. He left my side only for the twenty seconds it took to put a condom on, and then he was back, easing into my body. When he was buried deep, he stopped and looked down at me. “I don’t know what the second act of my life is going to look like, but I know you’re the best part of it.”

My heart, already beating hard, threatened to burst right out of my chest. “Really?”

“Yes.”

Tell me again, I wanted to say, even as his mouth possessed mine once more and he began rocking into me with deep, steady strokes. Let me hear those words again, because they meant I didn’t have to be alone anymore. They meant the risk was worth it.

They meant that finally I could say to myself . . . This is what it feels like to fall in love.

When The Walls Come Down by Aly Martinez and M. Mabie Cover Reveal

wtwcd CR banner

WHEN THE WALLS COME DOWN, an all-new neighbors to lovers romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez and M. Mabie, is coming June 4th and I have the gorgeous cover!

 

When the walls come down cover

Cover designed by Kari March Designs    |    Photography by Wander Aguiar Photography

 

Did you ever hear the joke about the guy whose wife cheated on him with his best friend? So he quit his job, moved into his parents’ basement, and gained fifty pounds?

No? Because that wasn’t a joke. It was my life.

Four years later, I’m back with a dream job, a killer apartment, and a set of abs that are better than ever.

So, when Maggie Light, a stunning, snarky blonde moves in next door, and we spend the hottest weekend of our lives together, I think this could be the greatest comeback story ever.

That is until I realize Maggie has moved to town to do one thing—steal my job.

Maybe this isn’t a comeback story after all. Maybe this is war—one I intend to win.

What I never anticipated was that maybe I’d rather win her.

Perhaps, if I’m lucky, the universe has finally run out of jokes and I can somehow win both.

REVIEW:

I’ve read each of the books in the Cloverleigh Farms series, and I’ve loved them all. A large-family-based small-town romance series is one of my favorite things to read, and Melanie Harlow’s Cloverleigh Farms series was a fantastic one. I’ve been looking forward to April’s story because she was the sister readers knew the least about, the one with the most secrets. Unforgettable is her story, and Harlow did a wonderful job telling April and Tyler’s heart-tugging, heat-filled friends-to-lovers, second-chance, small town romance by taking readers through the rekindling of their youthful friendship and setting it on fire.

April and Tyler have a complicated and painful history, although not for the reasons one might think. They didn’t part on bad terms, with terse words or anger between them—they just… went their separate ways. Faced with a difficult choice at a young age, April made the most selfless and mature decision she could have made at the time. She moved forward with her life, but the emotional consequences of that decision lingered with her. As an adult, she’s trying to move beyond them by finally dealing with them head on when Tyler walks back into her life. Tyler, a gifted pitcher, left to follow his dream of playing professional baseball. He was well into a remarkable career when it all fell apart. Humiliated and ashamed, he was forced to leave the sport he loved and is living a very solitary life. In town for his sister’s wedding, he runs into April, and they both get caught up in the nostalgia of the easy, carefree friendship they shared in their youth.

This was such an intensely emotional story as both Tyler and April had baggage to deal with before either was truly ready for what the other had to offer. My heart ached for both of them as they sifted through the wreckage of their painful lives and histories. While they tried to ignore the attraction they both were feeling, time wasn’t exactly on their side, so they didn’t fight too hard before they gave in to it. Tyler and April’s relationship, while fast-paced, was right for them. Sometimes love sneaks up on you when and where you least expect it, and this couple came to the table with a strong friendship, albeit dormant for many years, as their foundation. Just when they get to the point where plans are changing, feelings are involved and opportunities arise, difficult and painful choices suddenly had to be made, and in the heat of those moments, it’s not always easy to see through haze to the sunny sky beyond. Harlow did an amazing job getting these emotions down on the page, and I felt the crushing disappointment and soul-deep longing right along with this couple.

Unforgettable by Melanie Harlow was the perfect finale to this heart-warming, family-based, small town romance series. A passionate and emotional journey to love that was a bit bittersweet and angsty at times, April and Tyler’s happily-ever-after was all the more rewarding for the trials they faced, the tests they endured, and the love they found on the other side of them. Melanie Harlow gave her readers something truly special this family and their love stories, and I’m sad to see the Cloverleigh Farms series end. Unforgettable by Melanie Harlow gets 5 smooches from me!

Stone Princess by Devney Perry Release Blitz with Excerpt

STONE PRINCESS, the third sexy, suspenseful romance in the Tin Gypsy series from USA Today Bestselling Author, Devney Perry, is available now!

“Completely captivating and seductively suspenseful. Devney Perry weaves a tale that will keep you on the edge of your seat from the first pages to the last. But even more, she takes us on a journey about forgiveness and fighting for what you deserve. Presley and Shaw will stay with me long after I reached The End.”  ~Author Catherine Cowles

 

Presley Marks has just become a cliché: the jilted bride. Wearing a white dress, standing in front of her friends and family, she announces that her fiancé—according to his text—has forgotten about the wedding.

Humiliated and angry, she hides from the world in the mundane routine of her life. Working at the Clifton Forge Garage isn’t glamorous, but it’s safe from the spotlight.

At least it was, until Shaw Valance comes to town.

The notorious Hollywood actor is starring in a movie based on the town’s infamous murder. When he’s not on set, Shaw hovers at the garage, watching as they build his custom motorcycle and irritating her with his handsome smile. He was supposed to leave once filming wrapped and go back to his fancy life, not buy the house next door.

But Shaw might regret that purchase once Presley’s ex-fiancé returns, bringing with him a war between old rivals that could burn both their houses down.

EXCERPT:

My realtor would have earned a higher commission if she had mentioned that the woman who lived next door was Presley Marks. “Isn’t this a surprise?”

“Is it?” Presley asked, frowning as I descended my steps and crossed the lawn, meeting her in her driveway. She raised a dark blond eyebrow. “Because it sort of feels like stalking.”

I chuckled. “I swear I had no idea you lived next door.”

But what a bonus. I wouldn’t have to make excuses to stop by the garage to see her. She could tear that insurance waiver to shreds. Presley had to know I didn’t give a damn about that bike they were building for me.

“You bought this house?”

“Yeah.” I reached for the grocery bags she had in her hands. “Here, let me help.”

She twisted away. “I’ve got them.”

“Come on.” I stepped forward and she took a step back. Wait, did she really think I was stalking her? “I’m just trying to help. I mean, I’ll probably start writing down your daily schedule so I can make sure our paths cross at least once a day. But that’s normal, right? For stalkers?”

“Are you being funny?”

My smile flattened. “I guess not.”

Stone Princess by Devney Perry Review

5 SMOOCHES!

    

* * * * * * * * * *

SYNOPSIS:

Presley Marks has just become a cliché: the jilted bride. Wearing a white dress, standing in front of her friends and family, she announces that her fiancé—according to his text—has forgotten about the wedding.

Humiliated and angry, she hides from the world in the mundane routine of her life. Working at the Clifton Forge Garage isn’t glamorous, but it’s safe from the spotlight.

At least it was, until Shaw Valance comes to town.

The notorious Hollywood actor is starring in a movie based on the town’s infamous murder. When he’s not on set, Shaw hovers at the garage, watching as they build his custom motorcycle and irritating her with his handsome smile. He was supposed to leave once filming wrapped and go back to his fancy life, not buy the house next door.

But Shaw might regret that purchase once Presley’s ex-fiancé returns, bringing with him a war between old rivals that could burn both their houses down.

REVIEW:

Gypsy King and Riven Knight, the first two books in the Tin Gypsy series, were exceptional, and I’ve been waiting with bated breath for Stone Princess since Devney Perry laid the breadcrumbs for this story in Riven Knight. This is the story of Presley Marks, the little but fierce office manager of the Clifton Forge garage, and Shaw Vallance, Hollywood A-List actor.

Heartbreak and humiliation trail Presley from Riven Knight deep into Stone Princess. She may put on a brave face, she can claim to be a stone cold woman with ice in her veins, but she’s flesh and blood and feelings like the rest of them. Presley is just more adept at concealing them than most. Shaw Vallance, weary of his fame and the Hollywood game, craves real and genuine—authentic. In Montana shooting a movie, he meets the only woman who doesn’t fall at his feet or for his charm, good looks and million-dollar smile. She is less than impressed by him, or at least it that’s how it seems. After all she’s been through, Presley is also looking for something different—a real, honest man with a steady job, a kind smile and humble roots. With his flashy good looks, his million Instagram followers and the legions of adoring women, Shaw is not at all what Presley has in mind. Too bad the chemistry between them rivals the pyrotechnics in Shaw’s action movies.

Perry penned a heart-tugging, heart-racing tale in Stone Princess, and I couldn’t flip the pages fast enough. Angsty emotion, steamy romance and an air of suspense collide in a story that was enthralling, addictive and unputdownable. Five smooches from me for Stone Princess by Devney Perry!
