July comes to a close with a pretty good release week! There are new romances coming from some big name authors, including a few on my one-click list. It seems to be an angst-heavy week, so get ready for some emotional romances. Take a peek at some of the books releasing in the next week below!
July 25: Boyfriend Material by Ilsa Madden-Mills
Can this hockey player prove he’s boyfriend material, or will our past get in the way?
#1 Amazon Bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills delivers an all-new, enemies-to-lovers sports romance, a breathtaking tale of passion, heartbreak, and love…
Skyscraper cheekbones, lush lips, and magnetic topaz eyes.
Yeah. I’m talking about Eric Hansen.
Glorified hockey star.
Thinks he’s amazing.
The Golden Boy and I are WELL acquainted. In prep school he trampled on my heart and kept right on going.
Now, he’s living the high life with frat parties and puck bunnies at Hawthorne University. On the other hand, people barely notice me—unless I’m on stage taking my clothes off. I’m the nobody, surviving in the seedy part of town as I fight to keep my head above treacherous waters.
I’ve snubbed him for three years.
The avoidance game we’ve been playing was working—until he rescues me from a bad guy and claims he wants to help me more.
Hello. I don’t need a knight in shining armor. This girl saves herself.
Yet, I’m not sure how long I can ignore the undeniable spark between us. (It’s not even a spark; it’s a full-fledged, blazing fire.)
This steamy romance is perfect for fans of enemies-to-lovers or second-chances. Boyfriend Material is a new adult college romance.
July 25: The Grumpy Billionaire by Tru Taylor
When we last saw each other eleven years ago, I would have bet everything I owned, would’ve bet my mother’s life that Reid Mancini loved me. I knew that because I loved him, too. Madly, passionately, with every fiber of my seventeen-year-old being.
And that was why I made sure after our high school graduation night I would never see him again.
So much for that plan.
My new TV reporting job in Rhode Island is both good and bad. Good because it’s a great step up career-wise. Bad because it’s a little too close to home… and to him, the only guy who’s ever tempted me to let go and love someone.
Now my first love is all grown up with a full-grown man’s size and power and an oversized cocky attitude to match.
With the world’s largest social media network to his name, he’s got all the fame and fortune he ever wanted and then some—and no doubt a harem-full of willing women falling at his feet.
Oh, and he hates me.
Not that I can blame him.
He has no idea why I abandoned him so suddenly… or how often I still think of him. He won’t find out either—not if I have anything to do with it.
Everything would’ve been fine if he’d just stuck to his famously aloof no-talking-to-the-media policy. But no, he’s decided to give his first ever television interview. And he says he’ll talk only to me.
If I could turn him down without losing my job, I’d do it in a heartbeat. That’s how desperately I don’t want to be in the same room with him, talking one-on-one, on camera for God’s sake. But in TV news, ratings rule—and hot, hard-to-get billionaires are ratings gold.
So I have to spend a week with him getting the story. It’s the only way to keep my job.
I just hope I can keep my secrets in the process.
It’s only a week. I can do this. Seven days. Two ex-lovers. One last chance.
Now we’ll see exactly how much of a difference a decade can make… and how impossible it may be to leave the past behind.
THE GRUMPY BILLIONAIRE is a hot small-town rom com take on Sleeping Beauty. It’s a standalone enemies to lovers, second chance romance filled with heart, heat, and grumpy billionaire romcom fun!
July 25: Baller Boss by Lila Monroe
Fake date. Real trouble. Fall for a new trope-tactic, fake dating rom-com series from USA Today bestselling author, Lila Monroe!
Ex-pro athlete Austin Banks is cocky, charming, and the ultimate player… at least, that’s what I think when he makes me an offer I can’t refuse for my dream job. Except, it’s not technically me he’s offering it to…
Other Jennifer Walker is the bane of my existence. We may share a name (and a similar email address) but that’s where the similarities end. Other Jenn is bold, confident… and off having wild adventures on the other side of the world. So, she won’t mind if I borrow our identity back and prove I’ve got what it takes to have Main Character Energy, too. Right?
I figure I can put up with Austin’s playboy shenanigans long enough to level up my career, but I’m not expecting the sparks between us to be quite so sizzling, or for there to be a sweet, driven guy buried under all that charm. Soon, my one little white not-quite lie is spiraling, and I’m in way over my head (and out of my underwear).
Can I find a way out of this mistaken identity mix-up? And will Austin’s past keep us from scoring a home-run – on, and off the field? Find out in the new hilarious Billionaire Bachelors rom-com from Lila Monroe!
July 26: Misfit by Elle Kennedy
Welcome to Sandover Prep, where the delinquents roam…and you can’t trust a soul.
Finding out your mom is marrying some rich dude you’ve never met is enough to make any eighteen-year-old guy’s head spin. But for RJ SHAW, it only gets worse: he’s being sent to Sandover Prep for senior year. If there’s one place a misfit hacker like RJ doesn’t belong, it’s an ivy-covered all-boys boarding school for rich delinquents.
RJ knows his stay at Sandover will be temporary. Which means there’s no point making friends or trying to fit in. But the plan to remain antisocial goes awry when he meets a gorgeous girl in the woods on campus. SLOANE TRESSCOTT is pure temptation, with a sharp tongue and an ice princess attitude RJ’s determined to crack. Except there’s a catch. Sloane is the one girl he is forbidden from touching.
The headmaster’s daughter.
Good thing RJ doesn’t believe in rules. Sure, Sloane insists she’s swearing off guys this year, but their connection is impossible to deny. He wants her bad, and he’s going to win her over if it kills him.
Unless her ex-boyfriend kills him first.
The ruling king of Sandover will stop at nothing to get rid of his competition. Luckily, RJ’s unwittingly made some friends—his new stepbrother FENN, a pretty boy with a self-destructive streak; LAWSON, self-proclaimed agent of chaos; and SILAS, the All-American Good Guy who can’t actually be as nice as he seems.
If RJ wants to survive prep school and win Sloane’s heart, he’ll need to adapt—and fast.
July 26: Garnet Flats by Devney Perry
From USA Today bestselling author Devney Perry comes a second chance, small town romance.
Talia Eden loved Foster Madden for one year, two months and eleven days. It was on day 438 that her love died. The day he chose to marry her best friend. The day she vowed never to think of Foster again.
Until years later when he has the audacity to show up in her small hometown of Quincy, begging for her help.
The ink on his divorce papers is barely dry, yet he comes armed with apologies and promises. She knows it’s all a ploy. Foster is the king of games and secrets. But he’s got delusions the size of Montana if he thinks she’ll help him train for a world championship fight.
Except Talia has forgotten exactly what made Foster famous. The man has dedicated his life to victory. He’s steadfast. He’s determined. And he won’t stop fighting until he’s won her heart.
July 27: The Refiner by Kristy Marie
From bestselling author Kristy Marie comes, The Refiner, a steamy, enemies-to-lovers contemporary romance packed with all the feels and laughter your heart can take.
Dr. Astor Potter was everything I despised in a man.
It didn’t matter that he was my sister’s one-night stand or her closest colleague.
I wasn’t charmed by his philanthropy or the way he made babies laugh using those ridiculous voices.
Dr. Potter was cold, detached, and reeked of disdain.
Nothing mattered to him.
Not the messages I left.
Or the tears I shed.
Nothing brought him to life.
Until my sister died.
And I placed my newborn niece in his arms.
Her father’s arms.
He didn’t know about the baby.
Neither did I.
They say love can’t be born from hate and grief.
I’m inclined to agree.
But then he asked me to stay…
