Title: Our Little Surprise
Series: The Spencer Brooks Diaries Book 2
Author: S.L. Sterling
Genre: Age Gap, Instalove
Release Date: August 15, 2022
Cover Design: Thunderstruck Cover Design

“This duet put a cherry on my book cake and I loved it.” ~ Goodreads Reviewer


“This book made me smile feel my heartbreaking and so many other emotions” – Goodreads Reviewer

Spencer Brooks was the most attractive man I’d ever laid eyes on. Not only was he my boss and father’s best friend but he was also the man I had been sneaking around with for the entire summer.


That is why my world shattered the night my father caught us in bed together. Angry as hell, my father forbade us to be together, but Spencer promised me that everything would work out. In the coming days, my father demanded I quit my job. Only he didn’t stop there. He also called Spencer’s ex-wife, who threatened to take Spencer’s daughter Nikki away from him, forcing Spencer to call us quits for good.

Heartbroken, I buried my feelings for the man I loved, and put in a transfer to another department to appease my father. Only to my surprise Spencer refused to sign it until after I helped him organize his company Christmas Party.

I could only do this if he promised to keep it professional, but soon I was noticing the soft touches and lingering glances. Then one night he delivered a kiss that brought all my feelings back to the surface. I try to fight it at first until I discover something that will either bring us together or tear us apart for good.

I cleared my throat. “Things are going great,” I answered, straightening the tie Dad was wearing.

 

Dad turned and looked in the mirror, impressed with my tie straightening skills. “Wow, where on earth did you learn to do that?” he asked, knowing full well I’d never held a serious relationship before.

Truth was I had come to learn to straighten ties almost immediately after Spencer and I had had an intense session of hot sex against his office wall.

I shrugged. “It’s just easier when someone else does it,” I said, turning away from my father.

 

“When is Spencer supposed to be back from that business trip?”

 

“Um, I believe he said Monday. At least that was what his schedule said. Why?”

 

“Good, I have to go out of town for work on Monday. I feel better knowing he is home next door to look over you when I am gone.”

 

I felt a blush rise to my cheeks and hoped that my father hadn’t seen it. He wouldn’t feel better if he knew that Spencer and I were involved. He certainly wouldn’t feel better if he knew the things Spencer and I had done together when he’d been gone.


“What time are you supposed to be meeting this woman?” I asked, feeling my phone vibrate in my pocket.

 

“I pick her up in ten minutes. I guess I should probably get going. She lives on the other side of town,” he said, looking at his watch.

 

I handed Dad his jacket and practically shoved him out the door and watched as he ran down the front steps of the house. “Make sure you keep the doors locked, and if you’re feeling ambitious, why don’t you pull up some of the Christmas decorations from the basement,” He called out as he climbed in the car.

 

“I might,” I yelled. I waved just as he pulled out of the driveway and watched until he was out of sight, then I took my phone and sent Spencer a message.

 

BabyGirl89: He’s gone.

 

Spencer didn’t respond. Instead, in a matter of minutes, he was standing in the entryway of the house, and I was pressed up against the wall in his embrace with his lips tightly pressed to mine.

One bad pitch can change the whole game
Not to mention your life….
Zach Hiller was an ace pitcher for the New York Yankees until the day he lost everything in a catastrophe that he now remembers painfully as “The Curveball Incident”. Then, after two years of hiding from his past— spent mostly in Dublin, serving beer to tourists and throwing a stress ball against the walls of his messy apartment—his life goes up in flames once more, this time when an American named Emma Crawford walks into his pub and immediately takes to his tidy non- existence like a sunshine sledgehammer. How is he supposed to stay depressed, not to mention incognito, when this beautiful, stubborn, and funny woman is tearing down all his defenses? Emma has it all, including a brand-new fiancé, degree, and opportunity to explore every corner of Ireland for a summer. But all it takes is one chance encounter with a mysterious and brooding bartender from Texas to make her start questioning everything she thought she knew about herself. Together they have enough problems to fill an ocean. So why is it impossible to even consider spending the summer apart?

Anne Trowbridge lives in New Jersey with her husband, two kids, and two dogs. When she’s not reading or writing, she’s working her way through careers like she’s marking off a bingo card, with years spent as a newspaper reporter, book editor, middle school language arts teacher, and now writer.

Author note: This story contains dark themes and scenes depicting SA.

“Easily the best book in the entire series. It’s intense and heartbreaking … it’s worth every single emotion.” ~caffe.and.books

“What are you thinking about?” he asks, rubbing his thumb over the top of my hand, my head lying over his shoulder.

“That I have ugly hair.”

“What?” He jerks his head back in an instant. “Who gave you that idea?” The way he stares, it’s not with anger at me, but for what I just said.

I shrug, avoiding his gaze by staring at my bare feet. After a few seconds, he snakes a hand under his pillow and retrieves something. In his palm is the notepad I once gave him.

But as I look at it, as he turns to open a page, I let out a small gasp, my stomach flipping all over again.

I can’t stop staring.

My breathing goes ragged.

I’m there on the page, in a long wispy dress, my hair caught in the wind, skipping among flowers, butterflies floating around me, like he knew that’s how he makes me feel. But that’s silly, of course, there’d be butterflies in a meadow. That’s what this is. He continues to turn, page after page, and I find more of me on every single one.

He’s been drawing me this whole time? Why?

He gazes straight at me, the crooked smile reaching the far corner of his mouth. “Your hair reminds me of the sun, and the sun is beautiful.”

My heart flutters in my chest, tears growing within my eyes. And his face, the one that barely ever smiles anymore, grins so wide for me now. “Did you just call me beautiful?” I whisper with a thread of shock, because there’s no way he said that.

He raises a shoulder with a smirk. “I may have.”

My mouth spreads into a smile of my own, those butterflies in my stomach flying higher. And my head, it falls right over his shoulder, his arm draping around my back. “I think you’re kinda beautiful too.”

With a deep sigh, his head slants over mine and we stay that way until it’s time for me to go, wishing I didn’t have to.

Release Date: August 12, 2022
Cover Design: Qamber Designs
Photography: Regina Wamba

Verve Romance ~ “Crazy hot, super sweet, and with one of the most rewarding epilogues I’ve ever read, An Unexpected Turn was an absolute joy to read.

Booklover Judy Lynn ~ “There are some hot and steamy times, some very romantic and swoon-worthy moments, and times filled with heart-warming emotion.”

Pages with Payten ~ “the white hot chemistry between Peyton and Jake is undeniable”

Kristina Hearts Books ~ “If the age gap, forbidden elements, small town vibe, and real adult communication weren’t enough the heat is sizzling between Peyton and Jake!”

Peyton
After a risky affair cost me my self-respect, my credibility, and almost my job, I jump at the guidance counselor position that opens up in Uncle Keith’s small town. He’s the only father I’ve ever really known and the one I can turn to—even when I can’t tell him why.
No one here knows what a mess I am, and this clean slate seems perfect. At least until I run into my old crush, who’s only gotten better looking with age.
I won’t be another man’s dirty little secret, even if that crush I had as a teenager blossomed into something much more—something I can’t face.
Reasons Why Absolutely Nothing Can Happen Between Us:
1. Jake is the single dad of one of my new students.
2. Age gap. Age gap. Age gap.
3. He’s my uncle’s best friend.
Jake
I didn’t realize the curvy brunette I flirted with outside my son’s school was my buddy’s sweet, shy niece, all grown-up now. I know better than to get involved.
My marriage crumbled, leaving me and my son with damage we’re still repairing. The last thing I need is to start something with someone fourteen years younger. Did I mention she’s the police chief’s surrogate daughter?
I’m old enough to know better, but I can’t keep my hands off her. I never expected to fall this hard. Even though it’s all wrong, nothing has ever felt this right.
Author’s Note: This deliciously scandalous, small-town, single dad standalone includes steamy times in front of a kitchen sink, a hot new use for a chocolate ice cream cone, and an alpha cinnamon-roll hero who’s very good with his hands.

Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:
How does one certifiable human survive the Fae?
 

One dose at a time.

 

My name is Violet, and I am crazy.

Schizophrenic, to be exact. I see creatures no one else does. Even with medication, there’s no escaping the insanity, so I lie and say I don’t see them.

Until one night, my hot-as-sin customer is one of these said creatures and tries to skip on the bill. Instead of being a hero for stopping a crime, I get fired.

I should’ve kept my mouth shut because now my customer is stalking me. I should’ve called the cops, except he tells me the one thing I’m desperate to hear—you’re not crazy.

 

Ansel, a Seelie High Fae, says I can see the world no other human can. The more I learn about the Fae, the more questions pile up. Even more troubling is when I catch the attention of the Unseelie, the vicious and ruthless court, and they want me.

Trapped, desperate, and scared, if I am to survive this world, I’ll need to find out the truth about myself, and gather allies in the least likely of places.

The question is: can I trust any of this, or is this another hint of delirium?

Karina Espinosa is the Urban Fantasy Author of the Mackenzie Grey novels and The Last Valkyrie series.

Title: The Summer Dare
Series: Summers in Seaside Series
Author: Amanda Shelley
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 11, 2022
 
Summers in Seaside meant time with Nana, my sisters and an entire season at the beach.
 
Nana always took care of everything far in advance, so it shouldn’t be surprising that she’d planned renovations for after she passed.
 
However she failed to mention said plans to anyone.
 
So imagine my surprise, when I’m awoken by the blasting sound of a saw practically coming through my wall, the first official morning of summer break.
 
Not only did I come flying out of bed swinging, but I gave Ryan, the unsuspecting carpenter the surprise of his life, when I came wielding my killer coat hanger and all. Too bad, I was only in a tank and undies and it wasn’t nearly as effective as I’d hoped.
 
Of course, Ryan insists Nana paid for this project in full and he’s only doing his job.
 
But my sisters and I must make this summer memorable without Nana. It was her final request. I refuse to let a tall, pesky, sexy as sin, know-it-all get in our way. Nope – not a chance.
 
For the next few weeks, I do my best to pretend I ignore Ryan – until my youngest sister throws down a dare I can’t back down from.
 
Kiss the next single guy who walks up to the bonfire – or explain to my sisters why I get riled up over Ryan.
 
When Ryan suddenly appears, I know I’m screwed in more ways than one.
 
Not only will my sisters find I’ve been keeping a secret, but from the determined look on Ryan’s face, I’m afraid he’s eager to reveal it to the world as well.
 
What have I gotten myself into?
 
As I walk toward him, one thing is certain – this summer dare will either make or break me.
