WEEKLY WRAP-UP: November 13th

This was the week for complicated relationships! Each of these new releases features a couple whose journey to happily ever after is rocky, whether the relationship is forbidden, riddled with issues, or thrown off course by miscommunication. They’re also all pretty steamy! My favorite of the week (See Me After Class) is an intense rom com, heavy on the sexual tension but still very funny.

If you read my Teaser Tuesday post (found here), you know that there are plenty more exciting books on the way next week. I’ll have reviews going up throughout the week!

If you missed any of this week’s reviews, I’ve got the blurb and rating for each below. There’s also a link to this week’s Deals and Steals list.


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ SO GOOD

“Did you have relations with my brother . . .”

Good question.

I’d like to preface this by saying it was never my intention to ever get involved in a workplace romance, let alone get involved with the most surly, agitating, and pompous man I’ve ever met who just so happens to be my new friend’s brother.

My intentions were to show students how English and reading books could actually be fun and make a new life for myself in the suburbs of Chicago.

But so far, I’ve managed to be called into the principal’s office.

Coerced into participating in the teacher’s badminton league.

And instigated into passionate fights with Arlo Turner over education and decorum while losing my underwear at the same time.

Known as Mr. Turns Me On, he’s the reason I might get fired from my first ever teaching job.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Quick and steamy

The heart wants what it wants and mine has never stopped wanting her.

London Canterbury and I were never meant to be.

Her family was rich. She was cheer captain. 

The most popular girl in our school while I was the opposite. Poor, nerdy, and invisible. 

Eight years ago, I kissed the hell out of her, knowing I was never going to see her again. 

Or so I thought. 

Because here I am, rescuing none other than London who crashed her car into a tree in the middle of a blizzard. 

Right before Christmas. 

Now she’s stuck in my house. In my head. 

Back in my heart before I ever have a chance to stop it.

As the storm intensifies outside so does the fire between us. 

Despite all that, I know this is too good to last. That eventually the storm will end and she’ll leave. 

But losing her is no longer an option. 

I’m hoping that sometimes all it takes to fall in love is just one kiss…

JUST ONE KISS is a funny and steamy, second chance, snowed in, holiday romance that will make you swoon! It’s a complete standalone.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sexy slow burn

Wall Street Journal bestselling author Nicole Snow returns with a fierce and hilarious office romance where two sworn enemies make undeniable lovers.

My “interview” with bosshole supreme was anything but normal.
He picked the worst day ever to chase me off my favorite park bench.
I retaliated with a spray of cinnamon latte all over his Italian shoes.
Then—for some unholy reason—Magnus Heron offered me a job.

Even his name sounds like a piece of work.
Guess what? He is.
But when you’re single, broke, and barely surviving in Chicago, you hop on the gift horse offering a six-figure salary and ride.
I picked the stallion on a one-way trip to hell.

It’s not the impossibly long hours working under Grump-zilla.
It’s not the fact that he’s snarly, demanding, horribly rich, and chiseled.
It’s not even the pesky way he makes me blush every flipping time we’re together.
Mag is my boss. I’m his lowly assistant. Some rules are carved in stone.

That’s my mantra until we’re sharing a sunset too beautiful for life.
Alone with wandering lips, whispered secrets, and disaster in the making.
The plan was simple: punch the clock, get paid, and keep hating my boss.
What’s the blueprint when the office grump brings me to my knees?

Full-length enemies-to-lovers romance with the banter, intrigue, and slow-burn love worthy of a Happily Ever After. The bossman from Hades meets the hellion he totally can’t stand—until he can’t live without her.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Toxic yet compelling

Seth Loveless has been my weakness since I was sixteen years old. 

Two years ago, I moved back to my hometown. I started a business, bought a house, took up yoga, and went on hiatus from dating. Life is good.

If I never had to see Seth, it would be perfect. 

After all, my history with my ex-boyfriend is anything but simple. It’s taken us years, but we’ve finally learned to live in the same town without killing each other.

Is there an elaborate set of rules governing our every casual interaction?

Yes.

Do I still think dirty, off-limits thoughts every single time I see him buying apples at the grocery store?

Of course. I’m only human, and Seth and I are practically experts at the two F’s: fighting, and…

…sleeping together.

Still, we’re managing just fine. 

And then?

He shows up at my sister’s wedding. The man looks like pure sex in a suit, handsome as the devil himself and twice as charming.

Worse, he claims he’s my date.

We flirt.

We dance.

We break every one of our carefully-crafted rules, and we… should stop.

Too bad I’m having the time of my life.

I know I should end it. After all the heartbreak, hurt, and anger we can’t be more than enemies. 

But Seth asks me for one more night. 

Just one night.

Then, we’re back to being virtual strangers to each other.

I know I should turn him down. 

I know this ends with my heart shattered into a million pieces. 

I know lunacy is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

But I’ve always been bad at resisting a weakness.

One Last Time is a standalone romantic comedy and the final book in the Loveless Brothers series.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Short and steamy

An Infuriatingly Irresistible Love Story

Michelle Anders is done with love. Done with the involuntary heart palpitations and suffocating in breathless moments. Done crying over a man who doesn’t deserve her. She is determined to become a strong, independent woman, starting with focusing on what really matters. Herself. 

The solitary week of relaxation she planned at a friend’s remote lake house turns unbearable when the man who broke her heart stumbles in on her. While she’s stark naked in the bathtub. With his pants around his ankles!

Drew Wright may be the NFL’s newest darling, but to Michelle the jock is nothing but a loud-mouthed, crass, country-boy brute. He doesn’t deserve a second of her time…but the things he can do to her body are irresistible. 

When mother nature conspires to keep them locked up together, Michelle needs to figure out where lust ends and love begins.
