“May I get you something to drink while you wait for the rest of your party?” the waiter asked.

I would normally wait to see what the client did and follow his lead on alcohol. But tonight was not the norm.

I rubbed at my stiff neck. “I’ll take a vodka cranberry, please.”

I hoped it would help calm my nerves and release some of the tension in my jaw before I gave myself a full-blown headache. Taking out my phone, I started to scroll through emails to distract myself while waiting for my drink and dinner companion.

My head whipped up at the sound of Gray’s voice behind me. “Sorry I’m late.”

My heart unexpectedly fluttered, and I fought against the feeling of excitement. “Are you really? Because I get the sense you don’t have any manners after the way you interrupted me a million times today.”

He completely ignored my attitude as he took the seat across from me. “Traffic is a bitch getting downtown at this time. Next time we’ll have dinner at my place.”

“There won’t be a next time.”

Gray’s mouth curved into a smug smile as he snagged my gaze. “Sure there will. There’ll be plenty of next times. And eventually you’ll stop pretending you don’t enjoy my company.”

I hated that my body reacted to him. Right from the very start, we’d had a crazy chemistry between us that was difficult to dull.

I sighed. “What are you doing, Gray? Why did you come to my firm?”

He lifted the cloth napkin in front of him and laid it across his lap. “Isn’t that obvious? I need new legal representation.”

“At my firm? And you’d prefer that representation come from an associate instead of my boss’s boss—the head of our securities division? Or even from Pittman, who would gladly hold your hand and provide you whatever legal advice you need from his fifty-plus years of experience?”

“Loyalty is important to me. I want someone I can trust with my business.”

“And you’ve decided that’s me? An associate with five years experience who just got off probation with the Bar Association for violating attorney-client privilege?”

The waiter arrived with my drink. “Here you go, ma’am.” He turned to Gray. “May I get you something to drink? Or would you like to wait until the last of your party joins you this evening?”

“It’s just the two of us. I’ll have a Macallan, neat, please.”

“Coming right up.” The waiter walked around to the other side of the table and started to remove the third place setting.

I put my hand out, stopping him. “We actually do have another party coming, so you can leave that.”

“Very well.” He nodded.

Gray waited until the waiter was out of earshot. “I didn’t invite anyone else to dinner.”

I sipped my drink and offered a saccharine-sweet fake smile. “I did. Figured an important client like you should have more than one attorney to answer his questions.”

Just as I set down my glass, I saw the other man I was waiting for enter the restaurant. He scanned the room, looking for me, so I held up my hand and waved.

“Perfect timing. There’s Oliver now.”

Gray glanced at the man heading toward us and back to me. Instead of being pissed off, the jerk was amused. “That’s cute. You invited a chaperone because you don’t trust yourself with me.”

We hope you enjoyed this sneak peek of THE NAKED TRUTH.

I Think I Love You by Lauren Layne

 

They were “just friends.” Until one tried to teach the other the art of seduction … And became thoroughly seduced.
A game of seduction between two best friends goes deliciously wrong in an irresistible Oxford Novel that brims with wit and sexual tension. Library Journal hails Layne’s work as “exemplary contemporary romance.”
 
Brit Robbins knows that dating in New York City is hard—she just hoped to have it mastered by age thirty. But after yet another promising suitor says they have no sparks, Brit decides it’s time to torch her dating game and try a new plan. And who better to coach Brit through the art of seduction than the guy who first gave her the “let’s be friends” card?
 
Hunter Cross has always figured there’s nothing his best friend Brit can do to surprise him. But Brit’s request is a surprise he doesn’t see coming—and one he’s definitely not prepared for. Hunter and Brit have always been careful to keep things perfectly platonic, but the fake dates and faux flirting are starting to feel like the real deal. And soon Hunter realizes he has taught Brit too well. Not only has she become an expert at seduction, the man becoming thoroughly seduced is him.
 
NOW AVAILABLE!

MY THOUGHTS

It’s always sad to see a series end. I Think I Love You, though, was a perfect little bow to put on top of one of my favorite series.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE a great friends to lovers trope and Brit and Hunter were the perfect match!

Brit seems to be in a slump. She can’t seem to keep a boyfriend for more than a few weeks. Things start off great but then its seems like she gets slipped to the friend zone. Is she not sexy enough? Is her game completely off? With all of her friends getting married and starting families, she’s ready for that life. But it seems every guy she tries to move forward with turns around and leaves her with just more questions.

Hunter is her best friend. He dates a lot and even though he could totally be a manwhore, he is respectful and oozes sexiness. So who better to give her lessons on how to snag a man than her best friend. The only problem… not that they’ve started these little lessons, the lines are blurred and she’s starting to see Hunter is a totally new light.

Hunter doesn’t know why he agreed to be Brit’s love coach. But now that he’s started, he’s starting to see Brit in a whole new light. As much as he would love to be more to her, he knows her life is in NYC and NYC has always just been a stopover for him.

The two finally start to give in to these new feelings, but can it last. Especially after Hunter finds out his time in NYC is limited.

Brit and Hunter is my favorite out of the series. You can totally read each book as a standalone – but this series is one of my MUST READ recommendations. Sexy, smart and so much fun!

Lauren Layne is the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of more than two dozen romantic comedies. Her books have sold over a million copies, in nine languages.

Kissing Jenna by Kristen Proby
Series: Big Sky #2
Release Date: July 10, 2018

KissingJenna_Amazon_WEB.jpg

Synopsis: From New York Times Bestselling Author Kristen Proby comes the newest installment in her beloved Big Sky Series…

Jenna Hull owns and manages vacation rentals in her hometown of Cunningham Falls, Montana. She’s just completed the construction of her most exhausting project, the one she’s put her heart and soul into. The inviting, opulent Snow Wolf Cottages are the first ski in/ski out tree houses in the world.

Her biggest dream is about to come true, and she can’t let anything distract her.

Christian Wolfe is Hollywood’s it actor. If the magazines are to be believed, he’s the sexiest man on earth. He’s preparing for the biggest movie role of his life, and his agent has booked him in a hot new ski lodge in Montana, tucked away from crazy fans. He can’t wait for the break.

But what Christian isn’t prepared for is Jenna. With a face that could easily co-star with him in a movie and her ambition to put her stamp on Cunningham Falls, he can’t stay away. But even more intriguing than her beauty is the fact that she’s not at all impressed with his celebrity status, only turned on by the man behind the fame.

The love they’ve found is perfect—but time is running out before real life intrudes. Can they survive with both their dreams—and hearts—intact?

Meet Kristen:

1P0A9162

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.

Dirty Defiance by Chelle Bliss & Brenda Rothert

Reagan

My husband and I know how to fight. We perfected the art when running against each other for Congress. But that fighting revealed a passion for each other that we couldn’t deny. Battle lines were erased as enemies became lovers. But now we’re in the fight of our lives – we’re battling a smear campaign as he runs for governor. And again, we find ourselves drawn to do what we do best. I won’t be controlled, even by the man who owns my heart. But as tensions escalate to a boiling point, I discover there is one place I like checking my defiance – the bedroom. As Jude takes his dominance over me to a new level, I discover that submission can bring me to places I’ve ever known.

MY THOUGHTS

Reagan and Jude have always been polar opposites. I mean he’s a Republican and she’s a Democrat… but one thing they have always decided is that politics has no play in their home life. But now that Jude is running for Governor of Illinois, the line between personal and the workplace is starting to blur.

Although Jude and Reagan know the truth behind their love and devotion, being in the public eye is hard and everything is not always as it seems. Reagan has always stood 100% behind Jude, as he has her. So when Reagan is offered a job that will mean more time away from Jude, he’s not the happiest camper about it. Then rumor of infidelity starts to surface, bring Reagan to a stopping point and wondering if she really wants to lead the life of the wife of someone in public office. It tore her own family apart. Would it do the same to her and Jude?

I loved both Reagan and Jude. Both headstrong and full of love and fight for their partners. Great ending to a fantastic series! If you haven’t read the series yet, that’s ok, because this book can be read as a standalone within the series. But I highly recommend all the books in the series!

BOOK EXCERPT

I don’t pay much attention to what I’m throwing into my suitcase as I pack. Some of the clothes are still in their dry cleaning bags. I’ll manage a few work outfits out of all this stuff.

I’m pretty pissed. After three weeks apart, Jude took off on me and won’t answer my calls or texts. I missed him like crazy, playing the role of doting politician’s wife while he campaigned.

He knows how much I was dreading that fucking interview and photo shoot for a magazine spread about our home life. Even with the cleaning and decorating help his staff hired, I had to make sure everything was just perfect myself. When a photographer is coming into your home, you have to make sure every last thing is on point.

But I gladly did all of it for him. He’s only home for two days before he hits the campaign trail again, and I’m livid that he fucked me and hardly said two words to me before storming out of here.

We agreed before we got married that nothing would ever come between us. Not politics, not my father—our marriage comes first.

But today his fucking ego came first, and I’m not waiting around until he decides to come home.

I’ve been sidelining my work for months now, focusing on helping Jude instead. And that’s been hard for me, because I’m passionate about my work. I’m the US Congress liaison for The Lancet Foundation, an organization founded two years ago to advocate for bipartisanship.

Jude and I have become the poster children for crossing party lines to find common ground. As Congressional opponents, we should have been enemies. For a while, we kind of were. But I quickly fell for him, seeing that what brought us together was more important than what we disagreed about.

I didn’t drop out of the race because of our relationship, but because the revelation about my father’s secret family made me reevaluate what was really important to me. But I’ve taken lots of hits from women’s groups within the Democratic Party for stepping aside for my man.

Fuck them. They don’t know me, and they don’t know us.

I add a couple pairs of heels and my travel makeup bag to the suitcase, zipping it closed. When I pick up my phone, I see a text from Julia, my assistant. She’s booked my flight and arranged for me to be picked up in DC when I arrive late this afternoon.

I’ve been pushing this trip back for weeks, prioritizing Jude and his campaign. No more.

My life is like a coin.
There are two sides.

On the second side, I am Leela Walsh: Straight-A student, top graduate of my class, med student.
No one knows of my brother’s sordid past. My sister’s poor decisions. Or that I’m the first in my family to graduate high school.

He’s never had a job. Never wanted for anything.
And now, he wants me.

MY THOUGHTS

This duet was everything that I was looking for in Sutton’s story. Sutton is the baby of the family and the one who seemed to have a perfect life… that is until her husband dies, leaving Suton is a tailspin of grief. David has been by her side since the moment she found out about her husband’s death. He’s been a friend, a confidant and secretly falling in love with Sutton.

Now on the one year anniversary, Sutton is ready to move on with her life. She has a son to think of and Maverick would have wanted her to find love again. Right? So why is that every time she starts to feel like she’s on the right track, something goes wrong. There is a push and pull between her and David. She feels more than friendship with him, but when his big secret is revealed… she’s crushed and she feels betrayed. Now David has to prove that he meant the best in keeping his secret and that his love for Sutton is more than a passing phase.

I loved David and Sutton. They were electric together. Both with their own baggage but they fit so well together.

This duet was the perfect ending to a series I adored. If you haven’t started the Wright Series, you must!
