    Park Avenue Player by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

    Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland / Via amzn.to

    Release Date: September 23, 2019

    Synopsis:

    It started out like any normal day.

    Then the fender bender happened.

    The guy I collided with drove an expensive car and was drop-dead gorgeous. Too bad he was also a total jerk. We argued over whose fault it was and any other thing that came out of his condescending mouth.

    Eventually, the police came and we went our separate ways. The insurance companies would have to figure things out. I had a job interview to get to anyway—one I was excited about.

    Though that excitement changed to disappointment the moment the person interviewing me walked in. The guy from the accident.

    Whoops!

    Yeah, so I didn’t get the position.

    The problem was, I really wanted it. No, I needed it. Anything to get me out of my current career and back into working with kids.

    So, even though Hollis LaCroix was as intimidating as he was devastatingly handsome, I went back to see him and begged for a chance.

    To my surprise, he gave me a shot taking care of his troubled niece.

    At least my attraction to him wouldn’t be able to go anywhere. I wasn’t about to jeopardize my job or the strong bond Hailey and I formed.

    But resisting the magnetic pull between us wasn’t that simple. (Then there was our little underwear game—don’t ask.)

    We continued to flirt without crossing the line—until it finally happened.

    This is the part of the story where we fall in love and live happily ever after, right?

    Well, life has a way of throwing some major curveballs.

    Ours was one I didn’t see coming. 

    Dirty Letters by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

    Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward / Via ew.com

    Release Date: November 5, 2019

    Synopsis:

    I’d never forgotten him—a man I’d yet to meet.

    Griffin Quinn was my childhood pen pal, the British boy who couldn’t have been more different from me. Over the years, through hundreds of letters, we became best friends, sharing our deepest, darkest secrets and forming a connection I never thought could break.

    Until one day it did.

    Then, out of the blue, a new letter arrived. A scathing one—one with eight years of pent-up anger. I had no choice but to finally come clean as to why I stopped writing.

    Griffin forgave me, and somehow we were able to rekindle our childhood connection. Only now we were adults, and that connection had grown to a spark. Our letters quickly went from fun to flirty to downright dirty, revealing our wildest fantasies. So it only made sense that we would take our relationship to the next level and see each other in person.

    Only Griff didn’t want to meet. He asked that I trust him and said it was for the best. But I wanted more—more Griff, in the flesh—so I took a big chance and went looking for him. People have done crazier things for love.

    But what I found could change everything.

    Morgan is determined to prevent her daughter from making the same mistakes she did. By getting pregnant and married way too young, Morgan put her own dreams on hold. Clara doesn’t want to follow in her mother’s footsteps. Her predictable mother doesn’t have a spontaneous bone in her body.

    With warring personalities and conflicting goals, Morgan and Clara find it increasingly difficult to coexist. The only person who can bring peace to the household is Chris—Morgan’s husband, Clara’s father, and the family anchor. But that peace is shattered when Chris is involved in a tragic and questionable accident. The heartbreaking and long-lasting consequences will reach far beyond just Morgan and Clara.

    While struggling to rebuild everything that crashed around them, Morgan finds comfort in the last person she expects to, and Clara turns to the one boy she’s been forbidden to see.

    Imagine that your husband has two other wives.

    You’ve never met the other wives. None of you know each other, and because of this unconventional arrangement, you can see your husband only one day a week. But you love him so much you don’t care. Or at least that’s what you’ve told yourself.

    But one day, while you’re doing laundry, you find a scrap of paper in his pocket—an appointment reminder for a woman named Hannah, and you just know it’s another of the wives.

    You thought you were fine with your arrangement, but you can’t help yourself: you track her down, and, under false pretenses, you strike up a friendship. Hannah has no idea who you really are. Then Hannah starts showing up to your coffee dates with telltale bruises, and you realize she’s being abused by her husband. Who, of course, is also your husband. But you’ve never known him to be violent, ever.

    Who exactly is your husband, and how far would you go to find the truth? Would you risk your own life?

    And who is his mysterious third wife?

    You’ve heard of these groups – the secretive ones that only the crème de la crème are invited into, the ones outsiders speculate about for centuries – I’m the second in my family invited to attend, but to them, I’m fresh meat. New blood. New money, too.

    They think they’ll elbow past me, that I’m here for their amusement, for them to walk all over, they’ll find out soon enough that I’m not.

    I may look like one of them, with my designer bags and clothes straight from the Parisian runways, but I’m not. I’m here for answers, to take revenge for blood spilled on their centuries-old Persian rugs.

    I transferred here in search for answers about what happened to my older brother, who hightailed out of here, and my friend who seemingly disappeared into thin air. I certainly wasn’t here for the attention of the star hockey player, regardless of how much he willed my eyes his way. I wasn’t here for his scrutiny or his judgment or to read into his mysterious aura. I was here for the society, because only they held the answers I needed. That was, until I found out that in order to get those answers, I needed to go through him. He’s saying if I want in, I have to play by their rules, follow their lead.

    It’s a game I’m willing to play.

    I may be the second person I know of to be invited into their society, but I’ll be the first to make it out intact.

    Excerpt on Goodreads:

    “Silas calls you Mighty Max?” she asked, with a raised brow. “I like it. Slayer of personal demons. Savior of the downtrodden and the sexually confused.”

    I shot her a grin. “Has a nice ring to it.”

    She patted my arm gently. “Just make sure you save a little of your superpowers for yourself.” She nodded toward where Silas had retreated down the hall. “I have a feeling you’re going to need them with that one.”

    No shit, I thought. Silas Marsh turned me into a puddle of liquid hot lust, unrequited feelings and emotional turmoil. That was *his* superpower and I was helpless against it.

    “Hours are endless, pay is non-existence, quitting absolutely forbidden.”

    “Able to function on no sleep, refrain from running when times get hard, and be more than just a living canvas but a lover.”

    The third thrummed with honesty.

    “Other attributes required: forgiving, opinionated, and not afraid to tell me when I’m wrong. Must also enjoy being touched and kissed at any time of my choosing.”

    The fourth glowed with promise.

    “Call or email ‘YOUR HEART, HIS SOUL’ if interested in applying.”

    The final made my future unfold.

    The advert was so similar to one I should never have applied for.

    A twist of fate that brought two destined people back together.

    A job I would take in a heartbeat if the employer could offer such terms.

    But I wasn’t free.

    Neither was Gil.

    Synopsis:

    Juleón "Jude" Tholet has survival in his DNA. His father lived through imprisonment and torture during Pinochet's military coup in Chile. His mother risked everything to gain her husband's freedom and flee the country with their newborn child. But as a closeted gay teenager growing up in Vancouver, Jude is targeted by a neighborhood bully called El Cóndor, culminating in a vicious hate crime that forces the Tholets to flee again, this time to Seattle.

    Jude cautiously rebuilds his life, but his voice is silenced, his wings have been clipped and he cannot seem to soar either in his career or his relationships. Only family remains a constant source of strength and joy, until a DNA test reveals something that shocks all the Tholets: Jude is not their child.

    Stunned by the test results, the Tholets must dig into their painful past, re-examine their lives in 1973 Santiago and the events surrounding Jude's birth story. It’s a tale rooted in South America’s Operation Condor. It spreads through Pinochet’s military coup in Chile and his terrifying regime of detention camps, torture, disappeared civilians and stolen children. It ends with Jude digging through his genetic code in a quest to find his biological parents. Are they alive? Or are they among Los Desaparecidos—The Disappeared Ones?

    Suanne Laqueur’s third book in the Venery series explores the desperate acts of love made in times of war, and the many ways family can be defined

    Neat by Kandi Steiner

    Release Date: September 19, 2019

    Synopsis:

    My life is over.⁣

    I swore I would never work at the whiskey distillery with my last name on it, that I would never be a part of my father’s legacy. But when I graduated with my art degree and realized there were no jobs, the devil appeared, and I sold my soul, agreeing to work in the family business if he’d give me the art studio I’d always dreamed of.⁣

    It can’t be that bad, I thought. ⁣

    Until I realized my new boss was Logan Becker.⁣

    The Becker brothers have a reputation for being trouble, and since I love trouble, it’s no surprise to me that I’m infatuated by that forbidden fruit the first day I walk into the distillery. That lean, whiskey-eyed, too-hot-for-his-own-good man hates me — and I can’t blame him. His family has been at war with mine for decades, and for good reason.⁣

    The Beckers and the Scooters are the Montagues and Capulets of Stratford, Tennessee.⁣

    But if he’s Romeo, and I’m Juliet? Well… we all know how that story ends — and for that reason, I tell myself to steer clear. ⁣

    Because if my father finds out I’m falling for Logan Becker, my life actually will be over.⁣

    And Logan’s will be, too.⁣

    But nothing can prepare her for Dr. Elijah Hawkins.

    Single dad.

    Brilliant pediatric oncologist.

    And the sexiest doctor at the hospital.

    When his failed attempts at asking her out turn into a string of playdates with his son, Dorothy finds herself unexpectedly enamored with the boy and his father.

    What I learned after last year’s distractions cost my hockey team our entire season? No more screwing up. No more screwing, period. As the new team captain, I need a new philosophy: hockey and school now, women later. Which means that I, Hunter Davenport, am officially going celibate…no matter how hard that makes things.

    But there’s nothing in the rulebook that says I can’t be friends with a woman. And I won’t lie—my new classmate Demi Davis is one cool chick. Her smart mouth is hot as hell, and so is the rest of her, but the fact that she’s got a boyfriend eliminates the temptation to touch her.

    Except three months into our friendship, Demi is single and looking for a rebound.

    And she’s making a play for me.

    Avoiding her is impossible. We’re paired up on a yearlong school project, but I’m confident I can resist her. We’d never work, anyway. Our backgrounds are too different, our goals aren’t aligned, and her parents hate my guts.

    Hooking up is a very bad idea. Now I just have to convince my body—and my heart.

    It’s time I saved him.

    The plan is dangerous, and there are no guarantees I will survive. But if this nightmare has taught me one thing, it’s that I don’t cower in fear. I am a woman hell-bent on getting back the man she loves, and nothing, no one will stand in my way.

    Top three reasons why sleeping with the enemy is a bad idea...

    1. She’s my fiercest rival.

    2. She’s also my fiery ex.

    3. We’re going up against each other in a stiff competition to win the hottest new client on the market.

    And yet, I’d like to be up against the wall in a stiff competition to get her to call out my name.

    Time to double down on my resistance to her tough-as-nails, take-no-prisoners, sexy-as-sin attitude. The same attitude I find irresistible.

    That’s a big problem, because in this race to nab the client, I run into Haven in the hotel, on the beach, in the guest quarters late at night.

    Hate s-e-x would be a terrible idea.

    Except, it’s the complete opposite, and now we can’t keep our hands off each other.

    Trouble is, I’m not so sure it’s hate I’m feeling anymore.

    And that’s the biggest reason sleeping with the enemy you’re falling for is a bad idea -- my job literally depends on never letting her into my heart.

    Outmatched by Kristen Callihan & Samantha Young

    Kristen Callihan & Samantha Young / Via amzn.to

    Release Date: November 19, 2019

    Synopsis:

    What happens when an ex-boxer finds chemistry with a geek girl? This is one knockout they aren’t prepared for.

Rhys Morgan is a name that used to mean something to people. I was a heavyweight champion boxer, celebrated for my sharp instincts in the ring. That was before. Now, I’ve got a gangster on my back, my late father’s gym to save from ruin, and a brother who refuses to find a decent job.

When I discover the little brat is interviewing to be the boy toy of some spoiled rich girl, I take his place. Only the woman I’m about to tell off is a cute geek and can more than hold her own with me.

Parker Brown has problems too. She’s landed her dream job in renewable energy, but it comes with an old-fashioned boss who wants to see her settling down before he offers her a promotion. Even though we can hardly stand each other, posing as Parker’s boyfriend is a win-win deal. She gets to keep her job, and I’ll charm her boss into sponsoring my gym.

The trouble is this pixie-sized scientist is also gorgeous. And funny. And not even remotely impressed by me. She’s a sucker-punch to the heart. I can’t keep my hands—or my mind—off her. But a girl like Parker isn’t meant for a guy like me.

    They say opposites attract. Parker and I are about to combust on impact.

    A happily married couple. A dance with a stranger at a bar.

     

    One night—one seemingly insignificant choice—can change everything.

    Jessica and Jake Snyder love each other, and their life together. Successful in their chosen careers, they reside in the picturesque, though at times stifling, Seattle suburb of Queens Ridge as they parent teenagers Ella and Tucker. 

     

    As so often happens in marriage, their romantic life falls casualty to busy schedules and repetitive routine, until one night, a stranger asks Jessica to dance. On a whim, Jake urges her to say yes, saying that he wants to watch this other man touch her, something that surprises Jessica by arousing her like never before. A door opens for them then, into a realm of exploration neither of them knew existed.

    They create rules to protect their marriage, and are thrilled when their relationship is strengthened and enriched by deeper levels of communication and trust brought about by this exciting, but taboo behavior. That is, until Jessica keeps a secret from Jake and embarks on a tryst with an intriguing man from her past, who, when she tries to end things between them, decides to seek revenge.

     

    What happens after that will threaten to destroy their world—and them.

    A juicy and insightful look into the shifting definition of modern marriage and the limits placed upon female sexuality, TELL ME EVERYTHING will make you question everything you thought you knew about what constitutes marital bliss, and keep you turning pages into the night.

    Synopsis:

    How do you define yourself when others have already decided who you are?

    Six years ago, when Camden Daniels came back from war without his younger brother, no one in the small town of Alba, Colorado, would forgive him—especially his father. He left, swearing never to return.

    But a desperate message from his father brings it all back. The betrayal. The pain. And the need to go home again. But home is where the one person he still loves is waiting. Willow. The one woman he can never have. Because there are secrets buried in Alba that are best left in the dark.

    If only he could tell his heart to stay locked away when she whispers she’s always loved him, and always will…

    Great and Precious Things is a heart-wrenching story about family, betrayal, and ultimately how far we're willing to go on behalf of those who need us most.
