This week is a BIG week for new releases… though I have very complicated feelings about some of them! You’ll get the full scoop when the reviews start hitting the blog, but some of this week’s new releases were REALLY difficult to rate. Not all 3 or 4 or 5-star reviews are equal, and that’s never been clearer than with some of the books that release this week.
But this post is all about what’s coming NEXT week, and there’s a lot of goodness on the horizon! Details on books that are coming your way soon below.
Piper Rayne does light and sexy romance right, so I’m looking forward to their upcoming royal romance, A Royal Mistake. It sounds like it’s going to be a funny one, and I’m curious to see how they’ll redeem a heroine I REALLY didn’t like in the first book in this series. It releases on March 31st and I’m sure it will stand on its own, but you may want to check out My Bestie’s Ex if you haven’t started the series yet (review here).
He’s not your average Joe from the corner bar.
He’s the heir to the crown.
I should know, I’ve followed him for years.
Not in a stalkerish way. Magazines and online gossip blogs are fair game when you’re royalty.
But I do know every detail about him, down to the brand of boxer briefs he wears.
All my studying of the man who plays a starring role in my dreams pays off when I win a dinner with him. As if that wasn’t enough, he barters a deal with me that has him moving into my spare guest room.
I forgot that fairy tales don’t exist though because just as I’m about to get everything I want, including the prince, I find out there’s someone in Prince Adrian Marx’s life I don’t know—his fiancée.

Enemies to lovers AND it’s written by Kristen Callihan? Yes, please. I’m really looking forward to Dear Enemy – it should be more of an intense, sexy, and emotional read. This one also releases March 31st, so there will be a little something for everyone that day!
From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Callihan comes a smart, emotional contemporary romance about finding love with the most unlikely of people.
As kids, they hated each other. Macon Saint was beautiful, but despite his name, Delilah knew he was the devil. That he dated her slightly evil sister, Samantha, was no picnic either. When they broke up, it was a dream come true: Delilah never had to see him again.
Ten years later, her old enemy sends a text.
Delilah’s sister has stolen a valuable heirloom from Macon, now a rising Hollywood star, and he intends to collect his due. One problem: Sam has skipped town.
Sparks still sizzle between Macon and Delilah, only this heat feels alarmingly like unwanted attraction. But Delilah is desperate to keep her weak-hearted mother from learning of her sister’s theft. So she proposes a deal: she’ll pay off the debt by being Macon’s personal chef and assistant.
It’s a recipe for disaster, but Macon can’t stop himself from accepting. Even though Delilah clearly hates him, there’s something about her that feels like home. Besides, they’re no longer kids, and what once was a bitter rivalry has the potential to be something sweeter. Something like forever.

The newest sports romance from Julianna Keyes releases on March 30th and it was one sexy good time. Featuring an aging baseball player who was just released from prison (for committing a white collar crime he didn’t realize was illegal) and the PR woman sent to rehab his image, it’s got a moody hero and a frenemies to lovers vibe that shifted into an understated romance.
As Public Relations Manager for the Charleston Thrashers, I’m responsible for protecting the team’s reputation. But after our right fielder gets sent to prison and we lose the World Series, my own reputation takes a huge hit. There’s only one way I can save my job: by revamping Connor Whitman’s tarnished ex-con image. Keeping my eye on the ball isn’t a problem until I discover what’s underneath his unkempt exterior—a man who’s unexpectedly vulnerable and distractingly sexy. Now, my professionalism is sailing far into foul territory.
I’ve served my time, and now I’m determined to reclaim my spot in the Thrashers’ outfield. Unfortunately, the new General Manager doesn’t want an aging ex-con on the roster, so I have no choice but to go along with Allison’s annoying scheme. Her bossiness drives me crazy—but so do her legs and her hair and her all-too-rare smiles. I can’t afford to fall for anyone when my focus needs to be on baseball, but love is a game I’ve never played before, and for the first time ever, I’m out of my league.

This one is *supposed* to release next week, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it will be out sooner. I love Kayley Loring’s light and sexy reads, and this followup to Sleeper is sure to satisfy. Though I’m sure it will stand on its own, you should check out Sleeper if you haven’t yet – such a good read! The hero in this one is more of a shameless flirt, but all it takes is the right single mom to make him change his ways.
She serves me coffee late at night when I come around to write lyrics,
but it’s not the caffeine I’ve gotten addicted to.
We’ve got the spark, but she’s the only woman in town
who seems to be immune to my charms.
When it’s time for me to leave for my cross-country tour,
I just can’t imagine not seeing her for months.
So I offer her a job on the road with me.
Everyone in LA knows that Nico Todd has a way with songs and with the ladies.
What he doesn’t know is that I would love to let him have his way with me.
But my life can only revolve around one infuriatingly cute guy—
the six-year-old that I live with.
Imagine my surprise when Nico finds out about my little boy
and tells me to bring him and my mom on the road too.
And imagine Nico’s surprise when he realizes my son
is the biggest charmer of them all.
