We’ve got one more solid release week in June, with some exciting new books on the way. A few are highly anticipated reads for me, and a few others are on my TBR to check out. Take a peek at some of the books releasing in the next week below!
June 23: One and Only by Nora Everly
I didn’t mean to fall for my ex-husband.
When we got married straight out of high school, our love was true but my heart wasn’t ready.
I fled our hometown to follow my dreams in New York.
Years later I’m back in Sweetbriar trying to outrun a stalker.
Hiding out, working, and staying out of sight was my plan until I crashed into Cade.
The sweet boy I loved is now a hard, guarded cop who wants nothing to do with me.
Or so he says.
His lips on mine tell a different story.
He keeps me safe while keeping his distance.
One kiss reignited the fire between us.
Can one night together extinguish the heat before I return to New York?
Or should I stay and take the one and only chance we have to get it all back?
One and Only is a full length, contemporary, small town, second chance romance, can be read as a standalone, and is the first book in the Barrett Brothers Series.
June 23: The Devil You Know by Elizabeth O’Roark
There’s a devil on my shoulder, and every Monday morning she announces herself. She’s this delicious flame in my chest, a flurry of whispered suggestions in my ear. Suggestions I ignore…because every single one of them is about Ben Tate.
Ben—Stealer of Clients, Evicter of Homeless Women, Nemesis. Sitting across from me every damn Monday with his lovely, smug smile and his too-perfect teeth, the living symbol of everything I hate.
It’s been my policy to avoid him, but when a case comes into the firm—one that could change his career and mine—I make an exception. It means weekends and evenings by his side. It means enduring his smirk and his smart mouth and never taking the bait.
Until the night Ben says “Beg”…and that devil on my shoulder decides to make a few demands of her own.
June 26: Between Hello & Goodbye by Emma Scott
She’s a city girl in Seattle. He’s a firefighter in a rainforest. This is never going to work…
Faith Benson isn’t your emergency contact, she’s the party-girl friend you call for a good time. The gal-pal who loves mimosas at brunch and martinis at Happy Hour. But her carefree lifestyle threatens her job at a top Seattle ad agency. There’s no one better at landing big accounts (when she shows up) but her boss demands she take a leave of absence to get her head on straight.
Faith heads to the remote Hawaiian island of Kauai, far away from the vices that get her in trouble. A twisted ankle on Day One requires rescuing by a man who is vice personified—a gorgeous firefighter who awakens feelings in her heart she never knew existed.
Asher Mackey doesn’t get involved with beautiful tourists beyond taking them to bed and then watching them leave his tiny island. He’s devoted his life to the safety and care of everyone around him…except himself. Until he meets Faith Benson, the city girl whose vibrant, inner beauty shines a light on the dark corners of his life, showing him how safe—but empty—it truly is.
Despite their best efforts to keep their distance, Faith and Asher fall hard and fast, but there’s an ocean between them. Both are building their lives on opposite sides of the Pacific while their feelings for each other grow more profound and undeniable by the day.
Something has to give.
When Asher receives devastating news, he and Faith have to decide once and for all to entrust their hearts fully to the other or return to their safe—but separate—worlds. Because neither can endure much longer, living somewhere between hello and goodbye.
Between Hello and Goodbye is a contemporary romance about love, loss, and experiencing life in all its facets. It deals with sensitive topics that may be triggering for some readers.
June 28: Seatmate by Cara Bastone
I have exactly 5 hours and 10 minutes to get from Boston to New York City or the professional opportunity of a lifetime disappears. My only travel option? The second to last seat on a discount bus. Across from the bathroom. Wearing last night’s clothes (don’t ask). All worth it if I can make it in time.
My nerves almost get the best of me, but then there he is, sitting down in the seat next to me. Tall. Friendly smile. Bright indigo streak in his brown hair. The perfect distraction. Turns out he’s on his way to reconnect with an old flame. The one that got away. We can both make it on time – just barely – if the traffic keeps flowing.
Playing road-trip games, avoiding calls from his mother, and effortless conversation keeps us from clockwatching . . . until the bus breaks down. And my seatmate turns into my copilot as we wrangle a ride in a car three decades old. And hit all the traffic. And oh, Lord, the detours. And somehow I end up careening cross-town on the handlebars of a Citi Bike carrying a box of kittens. (Yeah, don’t ask.)
He’s my hero every step of the way . . . and I might be falling for him. But what happens when we reach our final destination? Could my seatmate really be my soulmate?
June 28: The Single Dad by Marni Mann
A sexy single dad and nanny romance from USA Today best-selling author Marni Mann …
Most college-aged girls go to Europe to experience their sexual awakening.
All I had to do was come home.
Ford Dalton isn’t the kind of man I’d look at twice—because I can’t stop looking at him at all.
We can’t take our hands off each other in the bar.
Back at his house, it’s our lips.
And in his bed?
There isn’t a single part of us that’s not on fire.
One night would never be long enough for Ford to show me every delicious thing he can do to my body.
But there’s something he’s keeping from me: he’s already met the love of his life.
His daughter, Everly.
And there’s something I’m keeping from him: I just applied for the job of my dreams.
Everly’s new nanny.
June 28: On One Condition by K. Bromberg
First loves deserve a second chance in an all-new small town, billionaire romance by New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg.
The requirement is ridiculous but simple. Spend two months in Cedar Falls and play the mayor’s games to ensure that The Retreat, Sharpe International’s newest resort, can open.

She’d had dreams and aspirations to leave Cedar Falls and make her mark on the world. So why is she still here, standing in front of me? And more importantly, why is she looking at me with hurt in her eyes when I was the one who‘d been forced to leave or else face the damning consequences of that night?
I have everything in life: money, success, an empire to run . . . everything except for one, very important thing. Her.
Fifteen years is a long time to wonder. . . what if. I’ll be damned if I leave town this time without her.
