January kicks into high gear with a GREAT release week, filled with so many exciting releases that I can’t wait to get my hands on. There’s surely something for every reader, and things continue to stay as potential-filled throughout the month. Take a peek at some of the books releasing in the next week below!
Jan 10: A Long Time Coming by Meghan Quinn
From the #1 Amazon bestsellers, A Not So Meet Cute and So Not Meant To Be, Meghan Quinn brings the third Cane brother in this all new hilarious modern-day spin of My Best Friend’s Wedding.
With a new ring on her finger, Ophelia is in dire need when it comes to dealing with her nightmare of a mother-in-law, and planning a wedding. Thankfully her best friend of over ten years has recently found some time on his hands, so she recruits Breaker Cane to be her faithful, “man in waiting”.
More than happy to help, Breaker takes his title of Man of Honor very seriously, that’s until he starts to realize that the weird, butterfly feelings he’s been experiencing lately are directed at his soon to be married best friend. Now, he has four weeks to prove to Ophelia that he’s the one she should be marrying, but expressing his feelings isn’t that easy. Especially when the fiancé doesn’t want to give up so easily.
More to come . . .
Jan 10: Exes & O’s by Amy Lea
A romance novel-obsessed social media influencer revisits her exes on her hunt for true love in this romantic comedy from the author of Set On You.
Romance book connoisseur Tara Chen has had her heart broken ten times by ten different men—all of whom dumped her because of her “stage-five clinger” tendencies. Nevertheless, Tara is determined to find The One. The only problem? Classic meet-cutes are dead, thanks to modern dating apps. So Tara decides to revisit her exes in hopes of securing her very own trope-worthy second-chance romance.
Boston firefighter Trevor Metcalfe will be the first to rush into a burning building but the last to rush into a relationship. Love just isn’t his thing. When his new roommate Tara enlists him to help her reconnect with her exes, he reluctantly agrees. But Tara’s journey is leading him to discover his own new chapter.
The more time they spend together, the more Tara realizes Trevor seems to be the only one who appreciates her authentic, dramatic self. To claim their happily ever after, can Tara and Trevor read between the lines of their growing connection?
Jan 10: Billionaire Grump by Misha Bell
When I’m late for a job interview and get stuck on an elevator with an annoyingly sexy, Ancient Rome-obsessed grump, the last thing I expect is for him to be the billionaire owner of the building. I also don’t expect to almost kill him… accidentally, of course.
Sure, I don’t get the plant care position I applied for, but I do receive an interesting offer.
Lucius needs to trick the public (and his grandma) into thinking he’s in a relationship, and I need tuition money to get my botany degree. Our arrangement is mutually beneficial—that is, until I start catching feelings.
If being a cactus lover has taught me anything, it’s that if you get too close, there’s a good chance you’ll end up hurt.
Post-elevator incident, I’m left with three things: my favorite water bottle full of pee, a life threatening allergic reaction, and paparazzi photos of my “girlfriend” and I that make my Gram the happiest woman alive.
Naturally, my next step is to blackmail—I mean, convince—this (admittedly cute) girl to pretend to date me. That way, my grandma stays happy, and as a bonus, I can keep the gold diggers at bay.
Unfortunately, my arch nemesis, a.k.a. biology, kicks in, and the whole “not getting physical” part of our agreement becomes increasingly hard to abide by. Worse yet, the longer I’m with Juno, the more my delicately crafted icy exterior melts away.
If I’m not careful, Juno will tear down my walls completely.
Jan 10: Lunar Love by Lauren Kung Jessen
This sweet, enemies-to-lovers debut rom-com filled with Chinese astrology will undoubtedly prove to be a perfect match with readers of Helen Hoang, Jasmine Guillory, and Helena Hunting.
Always a matchmaker, never a match…
Olivia Huang Christenson is excited-slash-terrified to be taking over her grandmother’s matchmaking business. But when she learns that a new dating app has made her Pó Po’s traditional Chinese zodiac approach all about “animal attraction,” her emotions skew more toward furious-slash-outraged. Especially when L.A.’s most-eligible bachelor Bennett O’Brien is behind the app that could destroy her family’s legacy . . .
Liv knows better than to fall for any guy, let alone an infuriatingly handsome one who believes that traditions are meant to be broken. As the two businesses go head to head, Bennett and Liv make a deal: they’ll find a match for each other—and whoever falls in love loses. But Liv is dealing with someone who’s already adept at stealing business ideas . . . so what’s stopping him from stealing her heart too?
Jan 10: Midnight Duet by Jen Comfort
From The Astronaut and the Star author Jen Comfort comes a wildly electric romance about two musicians who collide on the stage of a Nevada opera house.
Self-professed diva Erika Greene has it all: a starring role on Broadway, legions of fans, spectacular natural talent. But after an accident on stage leaves her face scarred and her career in shambles, Erika retreats to Paris, Nevada, where she’s inherited a ramshackle opera house in desperate need of some TLC.
Erika pours her savings into the building, but it’s not enough to stave off casino developer Raoul Decomte’s avaricious gaze. With foreclosure imminent, she leases the space to some unexpected tenants: a German hair metal band, fronted by glam rock god Christof Daae.
Erika is tempted by Christof’s low-slung leather pants—and even more so by his ambitious drive to make Nacht Musik international superstars—but he’s off-limits. The rest of his band thinks he’s still dating their beloved keyboardist, who is conveniently not present on this jaunt to the American Southwest. When Erika finds out Christof’s been unceremoniously dumped and is trying to keep it under wraps, she makes a deal to keep his secret…for a price, of course.
Christof is desperate to hold the rest of the band together after his keyboardist’s departure, but he can’t maintain the charade forever. Nor can he resist the opera house’s mysterious proprietor, who tempts him with midnight singing lessons. It isn’t long before sensuous nighttime interludes turn into smoldering backstage encounters.
But can their newly ignited passion survive the searing light of day? Or will their beautiful duet turn into a brokenhearted power ballad for one?
Jan 10: The Hatesick Diaries by Saffron A. Kent
Echo Adler hates Reign Davidson. He’s the reason the love of her life left her all alone and broken hearted two years ago.
So it should be easy to stay away.
It should be easy to not dream about his dark and mean eyes, or his cruel but sexy smirks.
It should be easy to not think about the guy who ruined her happily ever after.
Only it’s not.
Sometimes his intense stares make her heart race, and those smirks of his make her breathless.
But it needs to stop.
Because she has a mission: to get back together with her ex-boyfriend. And Echo will be damned if she keeps dreaming about Reign.
The guy who not only makes her sick with hate but who also happens to be her ex’s best friend.
NOTE: This is a standalone set in the world of St. Mary’s.
Jan 12: Where Waves Break by Julia Wolf
My new boss is:
-A former rock star, turned grumpy mechanic
-A single dad
-My teenage crush
It was supposed to be a one week job. Nannying Diego Garza’s adorable, four-year-old son should’ve been easy.
But things get complicated when Diego catches me doing something I shouldn’t. When he confronts me, I do the only thing I can think of: get down on my knees.
To my surprise, he doesn’t get angry.
Instead, Diego Garza calls me a good girl.
Then my one week job turns into all summer. I’m living with Diego and his son, desperately trying to forget how right it felt to be on my knees for him and how badly I crave to hear more of his praise.
Except Diego doesn’t forget. All day I take care of his son, and every hot summer night, he takes care of me. He tells me I’m perfect. Beautiful. Sexy.
I want to belong to Diego Garza in every way. But he hasn’t asked me to stay when this job is over at the end of summer.
The question is…when I’m not his nanny anymore, will I still be his?
(Where Waves Break can be read as a complete standalone!)
