NEwest release: ANYONE BUT YOU
Things are going great for Sutton Kay, or at least they were. Her yoga studio is doing well, she’s living with her best friend, and she just got two kittens named Mocha and Cappuccino. Sure, she doesn’t have a girlfriend, but her life is full and busy.
Then her building is sold and the new landlord turns out to be the woman putting in a gym downstairs who doesn’t seem to understand the concepts “courtesy” and “don’t be rude to your tenants.” Sutton can’t get a read on Tuesday Grímsdóttir, but she can appreciate her muscles. Seriously, Tuesday is ripped. Not that that has anything to do with anything since she’s too surly to have a conversation with, and won’t stop pissing Sutton off.
Sutton’s life gets interesting after she dares Tuesday to make it through one yoga class, and then Tuesday gives Sutton the same dare. Soon enough they’re spending time working out together and when the sweat starts flowing, the sparks start flying. How is it possible to be so attracted to a person you can barely stand?
But when someone from Tuesday’s past shows up and Sutton sees a whole new side of Tuesday, will she change her mind about her grumpy landlord? Can she?
Maeve Ivey doesn’t have time for bullshit. She’s got her bridal boutique to run, she just started designing custom wedding attire, and she’s healing from a vicious breakup. Plus, she also has a cat named Shady that needs plenty of belly rubs.
Everything changes when her makeup artist quits and in walks Cedar Shay to interview for the job. The very same Cedar Shay that Maeve spent one reckless and steamy night with a thousand years ago. Okay, it wasn’t a thousand years ago, but it was way in the past. To top it off, that was Maeve’s first time, period. Of course, Maeve is professional enough to overlook that little (MAJOR) fact, especially when it’s clear that Cedar doesn’t remember her at all. Great.
Things are distant and cordial until Maeve finds out that not only does Cedar remember her, but she’s been thinking about that night too. A LOT. The two are determined to keep everything above board, but will they be able to resist each other when they’re together all the time? Or will they give in to temptation and potentially ruin everything they’ve both worked so hard for?
Dove Fitzgerald is a force to be reckoned with. At twenty, she already knows exactly who she is and who she’s going to be: queen of her own media empire. She’s just started her junior year of undergrad to get her business degree, and everything is going according to her meticulous plan.
That is until Seven Sutter careens back into her life.
Seven Sutter, the girl who had it all in high school. Now here she is at the same college as Dove, in two of the same classes no less. Seven Sutter, who Dove has been paired with for a semester-long partnership. Oh, and Seven is now living down the hall from Dove. Because of course.
Dove braces herself for disaster, but what she doesn’t expect is to find Seven off-the-charts sexy. And interesting. And not the evil monster she always made her out to be. She’s just as driven as Dove, determined to have a goth café, filled with skull cookies and drinks named after dead people. Dove’s opinions of Seven start to change. Those opinions turn into something else: a crush. A big life-altering one.
Can Dove let their history go and give herself permission to fall for the girl with the killer brown eyes who makes the best chocolate chip cookies in the world?
Marriage of Unconvenience
Lauren “Lo” Bowman is in a bit of a pickle. She needs money, like ASAP. She lost her job, the rent is due, and her car needs repairs. Problem is, the inheritance left to her by her old-fashioned Granny has one stipulation before she can collect: she has to be married.
Let’s just say suitors (of any gender) are not knocking down her door. And then Cara Simms, her best friend from childhood that she’s recently reconnected with, pours her heart out and confesses that she needs money to pay for grad school. Lo has a completely brilliant idea: they should get hitched.
Not married married. Like, fake married. All they have to do is play the part for the lawyers, get the money, and then get the marriage annulled. Easy as hell.
Well, it starts out that way, but being fake married feels a lot like being real married, and Lo is flipping out. She cannot be falling for her best friend. Can she?
Kyle Blake likes plans. So far, they’re pretty simple: Finish her senior year of high school, head off to a good college, find a cute boyfriend, graduate, get a good job, get married, the whole heterosexual shebang. Nothing is going to stand in the way of that plan. Not even Stella Lewis.
Stella Lewis also has a plan: Finish her senior year as cheer captain, go to college, finally let herself flirt with (and maybe even date) a girl for the first time and go from there.
Fate has other plans for Kyle and Stella when they’re paired up in their AP English class and something between them ignites. It’s confusing and overwhelming and neither of them know what to do about it. One thing they do know is that their connection can’t be ignored. The timing just isn’t right.
But is there ever a good time for falling in love?
