It’s a quieter release week, so maybe I can finally catch up on some Fall releases? 😅 Probably not, but here’s hoping! There have been a ton of new books released in September and October, but it’s looking like November and December will be a little calmer. Take a peek at some of the books releasing in the next week below!
October 25: The Stand-Up Groomsman by Jackie Lau
A bridesmaid and groomsman put their differences aside to get their friends down the aisle in this opposites-attract steamy romantic comedy.
They say to never meet your heroes, but when Vivian Liao’s roommate gets engaged to her favorite actor’s costar, she has no choice but to come face-to-face with Melvin Lee again. He’s just as funny and handsome as he is on-screen…but thinks she is a snob and a sellout. It’s none of his business how she chooses to live her life, no matter how charismatic he is.
Mel is used to charming audiences as an actor and stand-up comedian but can’t connect to Vivian. She’s a smart, talented artist—which is why he thinks she’s wasting her life as a corporate finance drone. The only thing uniting them is their goal for the wedding to go off without a hitch.
As they collaborate on wedding cake and karaoke parties, Mel realizes he might have seriously misjudged this bridesmaid, while Vivian discovers the best man might just be as dazzling off-screen as he is on. With the wedding underway, maybe more than one happily ever after is in the future.
October 25: The Wrong Bridesmaid by Lauren Landish
Opposites don’t just attract—they ignite—in a flirty against-all-odds romance by Wall Street Journal bestselling author Lauren Landish.
Wyatt Ford hightailed it out of Cold Springs to get away from his influential family and the unwanted privilege that came with it. Returning for his brother’s wedding dredges up every reason he left. One unexpected bright spot: a curvy knockout who slings burgers, hustles pool…and hates the last name Ford.
Hazel Sullivan is fiercely independent and happy to be maid of honor for her best friend’s wedding, but she isn’t looking for romance. Especially not with a man whose family is dividing her town into a battleground with their development plans. Fighting the family is easy. Fighting Wyatt? Not so much. Why does the enemy have to be so drop-dead gorgeous?
The sparks that fly between Hazel and Wyatt might start out as combat, but one kiss and it’s total surrender. How is a happy ever after even possible for two people with so little in common? Except, of course, for an overwhelming attraction and that growing temptation to say “I do” themselves.
October 25: Fractured Sky by Catherine Cowles
Damaged. Broken. Destroyed. I’ve heard it all. A single moment of trusting the wrong person shattered my life into pieces, and my family has never looked at me the same. It’s impossible to convince them that I’m anything more than the broken girl they rescued all those years ago.
Until I meet him.
Ramsey’s grumpy demeanor and menacing scowl scare most of the world away. But not me. Not when I’ve seen his gentle hands soothe an abused colt or comfort a terrified mare.
And when I finally get up the courage to strike out on my own, Ramsey’s there. Roommates felt like such a safe proposition until Ramsey’s lingering touches and wicked smile light a fire in me I don’t think will ever be extinguished. And he feels it, too…
But just as my new life begins to take root, an evil from my past emerges from the shadows, casting a darkness on my newfound freedom. And this time, they won’t settle for pieces of me. They want everything…
October 27: Real Like Daydreams by J. Wolf
Seraphina…that’s a big name.
The first time I laid eyes on Julien Umbra, he made me cry.
That makes him sound mean, but grumpy would be more of an apt description. Besides, I always cry when I’m drunk.
Hate is a strong, strong word.
I’m back for another semester at Savage U, nursing a bruised heart and shattered ego. That’s what happens when your ex cheats and everyone knows.
Worse than that, the girl my ex told me not to worry about and then banged is vying for the one thing I want: drum captain of the marching band.
Pretend all you want to.
I have a chance to get what I want, there’s just one little thing I have to do: fake date the grumpy guy in the hoodie. The one who sits alone at the front of the class and growls at anyone who speaks to him.
But Julien doesn’t growl at me, and to my surprise, he agrees to be my fake boyfriend.
Breaking the already broken…
Julien is scarred in more ways than one, but he’s not as broken as he thinks he is. There’s something about him that draws me in.
I like him, and the longer we do this, it starts to feel like it’s not for show.
All of this is fleeting.
I have to remember this is fake.
When I get what I want, Julien and I will walk away from each other.
The song will end.
But what if all I want is Julien?
