Teaser Thursday

One of the biggest romance releases of the year is next week… and I suspect that’s partially why it’s such a quiet week for new books! I’ve already read and loved the newest from Ali Hazelwood, and I’m looking forward to getting caught up on my TBR next week – there were several intriguing new books released this week that I’m hoping to check out in the meantime. Take a peek at some of the books releasing in the next week below!


August 22: Moody by Penelope Ward 

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.
The day I showed up to Dax Moody’s sprawling home, I had no idea what was coming. 
As a traveling massage therapist, I was used to entering the houses of strangers. 
But this assignment was different from any before it. 
From the outside, I’d correctly assumed the owner was rich. What I didn’t realize was that he would be younger than I’d imagined, single, stunningly gorgeous, and mysterious.
Despite the fact that Dax had booked a massage, it never actually happened, since our first appointment was unexpectedly cut short by a comedy of errors. 
Certain I’d never see him again after that day, I’d done nothing but think about the captivating man. 
To my surprise, he called a second time. That appointment, we talked a lot, developing a stronger connection. But once again, there was no actual massage. 
The man I now affectionately called “Moody” kept calling me to come back. 
It took three times before I finally gave him the massage he’d ordered. Let’s just say it was challenging to keep things professional. I was extremely attracted to Dax, and by that time, I was falling hard. 
Eventually, I’d find out why he’d been so aloof, the reason why he and I could never be together. 
Our story was supposed to end there, but it didn’t. 
Instead, I was left perpetually longing for a forbidden man.

I’ve already read and loved my ARC – it was on my 15 Best of the Year (So Far) list last month. Find the review here.

August 23: Love on the Brain by Ali Hazelwood 

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis comes a new STEMinist rom-com in which a scientist is forced to work on a project with her nemesis—with explosive results.

Like an avenging, purple-haired Jedi bringing balance to the mansplained universe, Bee Königswasser lives by a simple code: What would Marie Curie do? If NASA offered her the lead on a neuroengineering project—a literal dream come true after years scraping by on the crumbs of academia—Marie would accept without hesitation. Duh. But the mother of modern physics never had to co-lead with Levi Ward.

Sure, Levi is attractive in a tall, dark, and piercing-eyes kind of way. And sure, he caught her in his powerfully corded arms like a romance novel hero when she accidentally damseled in distress on her first day in the lab. But Levi made his feelings toward Bee very clear in grad school—archenemies work best employed in their own galaxies far, far away.

Now, her equipment is missing, the staff is ignoring her, and Bee finds her floundering career in somewhat of a pickle. Perhaps it’s her occipital cortex playing tricks on her, but Bee could swear she can see Levi softening into an ally, backing her plays, seconding her ideas…devouring her with those eyes. And the possibilities have all her neurons firing. But when it comes time to actually make a move and put her heart on the line, there’s only one question that matters: What will Bee Königswasser do?

August 23: My Fake Fiancé by Piper Rayne

I never felt truly desired by a man—until him.

The second he stepped foot into my small town Alaskan inn, his gaze swept over my curvy figure with desire, igniting a flame I thought was dead. He flirted with me, and I might’ve left two chocolates on his pillow at turndown, but that’s where it stayed.

Over the years, he’s floated in and out of town while a friendship developed between us. It’s probably for the best because I’m not a one-night stand kind of woman.

Which is funny because when he propositions me to be his fake fiancée in order to end a family feud, it turns out I am the kind of woman willing to pretend to be the one he’s in love with.
