It Ends with Us

It Ends with Us A Novel by Colleen Hoover

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Starts with Us and All Your Perfects , a “brave and heartbreaking novel that digs its claws into you and doesn’t let go, long after you’ve finished it” (Anna Todd, New York Times bestselling author) about a workaholic with a too-good-to-be-true romance can’t stop thinking about her first love— soon to be a major motion picture starring Blake Lively and Justin Baldoni. Lily hasn’t always had it easy, but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She’s come a long way from the small town where she grew up—she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. And when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life seems too good to be true. Ryle is assertive, stubborn, maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily. And the way he looks in scrubs certainly doesn’t hurt. Lily can’t get him out of her head. But Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing. Even as Lily finds herself becoming the exception to his “no dating” rule, she can’t help but wonder what made him that way in the first place. As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan—her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened. An honest, evocative, and tender novel, It Ends with Us is “a glorious and touching read, a forever keeper. The kind of book that gets handed down” ( USA TODAY ).

It Starts with Us

It Starts with Us A Novel by Colleen Hoover

Before It Ends with Us , it started with Atlas. Colleen Hoover tells fan favorite Atlas’s side of the story and shares what comes next in this long-anticipated sequel to the “glorious and touching” ( USA TODAY ) #1 New York Times bestseller It Ends with Us . Lily and her ex-husband, Ryle, have just settled into a civil coparenting rhythm when she suddenly bumps into her first love, Atlas, again. After nearly two years separated, she is elated that for once, time is on their side, and she immediately says yes when Atlas asks her on a date. But her excitement is quickly hampered by the knowledge that, though they are no longer married, Ryle is still very much a part of her life—and Atlas Corrigan is the one man he will hate being in his ex-wife and daughter’s life. Switching between the perspectives of Lily and Atlas, It Starts with Us picks up right where the epilogue for the “gripping, pulse-pounding” (Sarah Pekkanen, author of Perfect Neighbors ) bestselling phenomenon It Ends with Us left off. Revealing more about Atlas’s past and following Lily as she embraces a second chance at true love while navigating a jealous ex-husband, it proves that “no one delivers an emotional read like Colleen Hoover” (Anna Todd, New York Times bestselling author).

Finding Ashlyn - Susan Stoker Cover Art

Finding Ashlyn

Finding Ashlyn by Susan Stoker

Friends with benefits. That’s all Ashlyn wanted with Slate. They were certainly combustible in the bedroom, and that was sufficient…wasn’t it? Yes, definitely. He was too bossy. Too protective. She didn’t want someone hovering, wanting to know her every move and telling her she was too reckless. But then again, knowing someone cared enough to worry about her felt kind of nice. Not to mention the more she was around Slate, and the more she learned about him, the harder it was to ignore her feelings. Duncan “Slate” Stone had never been with a woman like Ashlyn. She was impulsive, spontaneous, argumentative, and way too nonchalant about her safety. She drove him completely crazy…and he couldn’t stay away from her. The sex was out-of-this-world amazing, but just being near her, even if they did nothing but talk, made him just as happy. Clearly their laid-back arrangement worked. No need to rock the boat…right? When she unexpectedly finds herself in the middle of a deadly situation, Ashlyn realizes that having an overprotective boyfriend isn’t such a bad thing. And Slate discovers his feelings for Ashlyn are anything but casual. But both those discoveries could be too little, too late.  ** Finding Ashlyn is the 6th book in the SEAL Team Hawaii Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

Hallie Welch fell hard for Julian Vos at fourteen, after they almost kissed in the dark vineyards of his family’s winery. Now the prodigal hottie has returned to Napa Valley and when Hallie is hired to revamp the gardens on the Vos estate, she wonders if she'll finally get that smooch. But the grumpy professor isn’t the teenager she remembers and their polar opposite personalities clash spectacularly. One wine-fueled girls’ night later, Hallie can’t shake the sense that she did something reckless—and then she remembers the drunken secret admirer letter she left for Julian. Oh shit. On sabbatical from his ivy league job, Julian plans to write a novel. But having Hallie gardening right outside his window is the ultimate distraction. She’s eccentric, chronically late, often literally covered in dirt—and so unbelievably beautiful, he can’t focus on anything else. Until he finds an anonymous letter sent by a woman from his past. Even as Julian wonders about this admirer, he’s sucked further into Hallie’s orbit. Like the flowers she plants all over town, Hallie is a burst of color in Julian’s grayscale life.

But there’s something so familiar about her... and her very presence is turning his world upside down. "Tessa Bailey is the queen of rom-coms.

And desperately trying not to give in to the sizzling heat between us.  I have to let her know the plan has changed: I’ll still help her get the guy she wants. I just need to somehow convince her that it’s me.   A steamy, opposites-attract, enemies-to-lovers (or is it friends-to-lovers? So hard to tell with these two!), mountain man small-town rom com.

From Blood and Ash by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Captivating and action-packed, From Blood and Ash is a sexy, addictive, and unexpected fantasy perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Laura Thalassa. A Maiden… Chosen from birth to usher in a new era, Poppy’s life has never been her own. The life of the Maiden is solitary. Never to be touched. Never to be looked upon. Never to be spoken to. Never to experience pleasure. Waiting for the day of her Ascension, she would rather be with the guards, fighting back the evil that took her family, than preparing to be found worthy by the gods. But the choice has never been hers. A Duty… The entire kingdom’s future rests on Poppy’s shoulders, something she’s not even quite sure she wants for herself. Because a Maiden has a heart. And a soul. And longing. And when Hawke, a golden-eyed guard honor bound to ensure her Ascension, enters her life, destiny and duty become tangled with desire and need. He incites her anger, makes her question everything she believes in, and tempts her with the forbidden. A Kingdom… Forsaken by the gods and feared by mortals, a fallen kingdom is rising once more, determined to take back what they believe is theirs through violence and vengeance. And as the shadow of those cursed draws closer, the line between what is forbidden and what is right becomes blurred. Poppy is not only on the verge of losing her heart and being found unworthy by the gods, but also her life when every blood-soaked thread that holds her world together begins to unravel.

For the last year, she's been riddled with guilt and grief over the death of her childhood sweetheart, Danny, who was killed in Iraq—only days after she broke off their engagement. Her guilt and grief have her sleepwalking through life and spending way too much time hiding in her tower room at Buckinghorse Palace . . . until the town fortuneteller has a dream. A dream where Adeline is the heroine who will save her family from the scoundrel who has been plotting to destroy the Kingmans. Adeline is as much a hero as she is a princess. But when all clues lead to the ranch foreman, Adeline has no choice then to saddle up and prove Gage Reardon is more fire-breathing dragon than cowboy-in-shining-armor. Which shouldn't be too difficult since every time Gage touches her, he sets her aflame. The Knight: Gage Reardon didn't expect his job as the ranch foreman to make use of the skills he learned as a Marine. But when someone starts trying to kill off the Kingmans, the hero in Gage springs to action and he's willing to do whatever it takes to protect the family . . . even play bodyguard to the coldhearted princess who broke his marine buddy's heart. But picturing Adeline as an evil heartbreaker is much easier to do when she's hiding in her tower. Spending time with her makes Gage realize that Adeline isn't cruel as much as kind. Isn't frigid as much as a passionate woman who feels as guilty about Danny's death as Gage does. Before he can confess the real reason he came to the ranch, Adeline will discover the truth, the villain will strike again, and Gage will have to act fast if he doesn't want to lose the only woman who can give him a happily ever after.

Roommates are not permanent, But the attachments are… Abigail A few weeks ago, I was a nobody at Gulf Coast University. Now I'm the most popular girl on campus. All thanks to my roommate, star quarterback Casey Turner. Everybody wants a piece of me, but all I want is Casey. He's sexy and funny, with the ability to literally charm a girl's pants off. Plus, he noticed me way back when I was invisible. As I climb higher up the social ladder, all the other girls who want him are sharpening their claws. Crushing on Casey when I was a shy, invisible nerd was hard. Wanting him now that I can be knocked off this throne is even harder. I know it's foolish to hope for something more than a fling with the university's most notorious player. But now that I'm in the spotlight, all I want is for Casey to give us a chance. Casey As the king on this campus, I have a reputation. I'm the best quarterback this school has ever had, and even though I'm a player not one of the girls on campus has ever tied me down. Too bad my rep has taken a hit ever since I moved in with the university's biggest nerd. Abigail Hopkins, geek and all-around good girl. Though I tried to resist my shy, nerdy roommate, things got hot and heavy. Turns out Abby is the one girl with the power to bring me to my knees and I didn't see it coming. At first fooling around with her is all fun and games, until she becomes the center of attention. Now, students want to either date her or befriend her. After Abby's dorky, good girl image gets a makeover, I start to wonder. If I'm the one who put her in the limelight, what happens when I decide that I want the school's most popular girl all to myself? Roommate Wanted Series The RoommateThe BunkmateThe Flatmate

One summer. Two rivals. A plot twist they didn't see coming... Nora Stephens' life is books—she’s read them all—and she is not that type of heroine. Not the plucky one, not the laidback dream girl, and especially not the sweetheart. In fact, the only people Nora is a heroine for are her clients, for whom she lands enormous deals as a cutthroat literary agent, and her beloved little sister Libby. Which is why she agrees to go to Sunshine Falls, North Carolina for the month of August when Libby begs her for a sisters’ trip away—with visions of a small town transformation for Nora, who she’s convinced needs to become the heroine in her own story. But instead of picnics in meadows, or run-ins with a handsome country doctor or bulging-forearmed bartender, Nora keeps bumping into Charlie Lastra, a bookish brooding editor from back in the city. It would be a meet-cute if not for the fact that they’ve met many times and it’s never been cute. If Nora knows she’s not an ideal heroine, Charlie knows he’s nobody’s hero, but as they are thrown together again and again—in a series of coincidences no editor worth their salt would allow—what they discover might just unravel the carefully crafted stories they’ve written about themselves.

When a Moth loved a Bee

When a Moth loved a Bee High Fantasy Romance by Pepper Winters

“It’s taking everything I have not to touch you. Not because I want to make you mine but because every part of me screams that you already are.” A pack of wolves hunt a girl who takes her last breath by a river’s edge. She is found and nursed back to health by the kind-hearted Nhil people. She has no memory. No past. And is given a choice that could change her forgotten life forever. A pack of wolves adopt a man who begs for death in the grasslands. Blood revives him. Flesh strengthens him. All while the alpha watches him as if he knows who he is. He has no memory. No past. And yet…he’s drawn toward the smoke of a faraway clan. And in that smoke, he finds a girl with the same mark on her thigh, the same empty mind, and the same forgotten language on her lips. He’s convinced they know each other. She’s certain they are strangers. But the more time they spend together, the more tangled the truth becomes. Their forgetfulness was deliberate. To keep them apart. To keep them lost. To keep them from claiming their true power. Because in that power exists a terrible choice. A choice that could destroy the world… …or each other. When a Moth Loved a Bee is the first volume in the Epic Fantasy Romance Destini Chronicles. A heavily romantic, spice-filled fantasy set in a world where life and death, shadows and stars watch over two forbidden lovers whose powers are best left forgotten. Recommended for readers over R18 due to explicit scenes, content, and darker elements. Author Note: This Fantasy is 100% romance. It isn't a quest where they spend most of the book apart.

Advance Reviews: "Gorgeous and effusive, this behemoth of a fantasy shoots for the stars with an apocalyptic-level romance at its core. The moth's love for his bee is hungry, dangerously dark, and consumes on a cosmic scale. No one loves and cherishes a heartmate like this shadowy alpha. The pages purr with compassion in a mystical realm, and the cliffhanger is out of this world. I'm dying to see what happens next." ~ Pam Godwin, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author "Pepper Winters is masterful, original, and epic! I love getting lost in her work and am always ready for more!" - Meghan March, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author “I absolutely LOVED this story and I cannot wait for more.
