If this is your first Melissa Foster book, please note that Finding My Girl is not a novel, a novella, or even a typical short story. It is a graphic companion booklet to the full-length contemporary romance novel, Love Like Ours, featuring Talia Dalton and Derek Grant. In Love Like Ours, one of the many ways Derek shows his love for Talia is through cute and loving sketches depicting their lives as they came together. Finding My Girl is a collection of those images, along with a couple of images that Jonah, Derek's father, had drawn for his wife, Eva. Within these pages you will also find heartfelt messages from Derek to Talia that are not found in the original novel.  As a bonus, the first chapter of Love Like Ours is included in the back of the booklet.

Hard Sell

21 Wall Street

By: Lauren Layne

Releasing Sept 4th, 2018
Montlake

 

Blurb:

 

He’s a Wall Street wolf. She’s been hired to tame him. From New York Times bestselling author Lauren Layne comes a wildly sexy novel of business and pleasure.

 

Twenty-eight and filthy rich, Matt Cannon is the youngest broker on Wall Street. He may be a “boy wonder,” but he’s every inch a man. Ask any woman—any night. But when Matt’s latest fling makes scandalous headlines, his clients get anxious, and his bosses at Wolfe Investments level an ultimatum: keep his assets zipped, get a “real” girlfriend, and clean up his act. Only one woman can help Matt with something this hard.

 

For PR genius Sabrina Cross, the best fixer in Manhattan, playing Matt’s steady is going to be a challenge, even if it’s just for show. They already have an explosive history, she can’t stand the cocky party boy, and worse—she can’t stop thinking about him. So who’ll dare to break her “no touching” rule first? Because when that happens, Matt and Sabrina’s game of let’s pretend will get so hot it could set both their reputations on fire.

 

“Layne can always be counted on to create an engaging, steamy, and thoroughly rewarding reading experience.” —RT Book Reviews

I narrow my eyes, because there’s something just beyond the usual stubborn determinedness in her eyes. Something . . .

 

She starts to move away, and I grab her arm as I realize what that something is. “You’re scared.”

 

Sabrina scoffs. “Of what?”

 

I have no idea, but I do know her well enough to know what’ll spur her into action—the action I want.

 

I lean forward slightly. “You’re terrified that you can’t do it. That you can’t pretend we’re a couple without wanting it for real.”

 

This time I get a snort. “Reverse psychology? Really?”

 

I give her a slow, taunting smile. “Prove it. Prove that you’re not completely terrified you’ll fall in love with me.”

 

“Oh my God,” she says on a laugh, tugging her arm free. “That’s so not going to work on me.”

 

I shrug, letting my expression go deliberately skeptical as I sip my drink.

 

The silence stretches on, and she lets out an indignant huff. “You’re not that irresistible, you know. This whole I can’t break the little lady’s heart routine is a bit nauseating.”

 

I ignore this and go to her fridge, even though I’m not hungry. “Got anything to eat?”

Exactly as I expect, Sabrina stomps toward me, slaps her palm against the fridge door, and glares up at me. “You’re the last person I’d ever fall in love with.”

 

“Have you ever been in love?” I ask, a little curious.

 

“Of course not,” she says.

 

“You don’t believe in it?”

 

She bites her lip, as though unsure of her response. “Not lasting romantic love like you see in the movies, no.”

 

“Excellent.”

 

“Why is that excellent?”

 

“Because it means there should be no problem with you posing as my girlfriend.”

 

She laughs a little and rests the side of her head against the fridge. “You’re relentless.”

“And you’re stubborn. Seriously, though . . . What are you so afraid of?” I ask it quietly.

For a moment, her expression’s unreadable. Then she gives a slow smile and leans in slightly. “You know, for someone so decidedly antirelationship, you’re pretty obsessed with the idea of my falling for you.”

 

She’s clearly not going to answer my question, and I shove aside my disappointment. Figuring out what the hell makes Sabrina tick was never going to be easy. I’ve always known that.

 

“What can I say, the apocalypse fascinates me.” I lean a shoulder against the fridge, mirroring her posture.

 

“At least you acknowledge that it’ll be the end of the world before I feel anything other than tolerant loathing for you.”

 

“Or I you,” I say, lifting my glass in a toast.

 

She clinks her glass to mine, even as she frowns, a tiny line appearing between her dark eyebrows. “You really think I can’t do it? Spend a month as your companion without falling all over myself?”

 

I push away from the refrigerator and go to the counter, setting aside my drink. “Doesn’t matter what I think.”

 

She follows me, fingers wrapping around my wrist. “Could you do it?”

 

“Do what?”

 

“Spend an entire month in my company without falling for my charms.” She says it mockingly, but the question is clearly a challenge.

 

I’ve never been good at backing down from a challenge, and one issued by her? Forget it.

 

“I think I’d manage.”

 

“You know,” she says, studying my face, “you’ve got me thinking.”

 

“Dangerous,” I mutter.

 

“Perhaps this could be good for us.”

 

My heart tightens in my chest as I realize that she’s actually considering going along with my plan. “Yeah?”

 

Sabrina nods. “This weird thing between us . . . the fact that we can’t coexist without tearing each other down or tearing off each other’s clothes—”

 

“For the record, I’m always a fan of the last one.”

 

 

 

 

Hard Sell (21 Wall Street, #2)Hard Sell by Lauren Layne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #2, in the 21 Wall Street series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment, and to avoid spoiler, I recommend reading this series in order.

Matt is good at his job. He also good at playing in his down time. The only real woman he is interested lately is Samantha. Now he needs her help or he could lose everything.

Samantha wants Matt. All the time. She hates that she does, but cannot turn it off. The sparks between them are strong. If she agreed to help him, can they build the trust that can bring the joy of a future as well?

This author never ever disappoints. This story has the heart, heat, and suspense to make you turn each page eagerly. I know I did. I loved the banter and sexy times that this couple could not resist. They are so drawn to one another that their future just seems inevitable. I am excited to see the next book in this incredible series.

Trust
Going Up - Tawna Fenske

Noah meets Lexi in an elevator of all places.  He is a stone mason who has an artists eye.  He is immediately attracted once they start talking.  He would love to see her again, but she is married.

 

Lexi is trapped in the elevator with a hottie who has a soft heart.  She is impressed almost instantly, but has trust issues that stop her from reaching out and telling him the truth.  When they see one another again, can she get the courage to move on?

 

I loved the interaction between the characters.  This is an author who is great about humor and banter and never disappoints.  Such a sweet and sexy story that makes for a great read and finishes with an HEA.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Love only works when your heart is in the right place. 
Hers could be right next door…
 
 
ONLY FOR YOU
Sugar Lake #2
Melissa Foster
Releasing Dec 5, 2017
Montlake

 
Single mom Bridgette Dalton doesn’t have time to stop and smell the roses—not even in her own flower shop. But that doesn’t mean she hasn’t noticed Bodhi Booker. Her ruggedly handsome next-door neighbor would be the perfect candidate for a no-strings fling. Having loved and lost, Bridgette’s not ready to hand over her heart…but she could use a distraction.
 
Bodhi has one rule: never leave anyone behind. As a special operative, he knows that each new mission is more dangerous than the last. He’s never made a promise of forever to a woman, not even to the beautiful widow who has him tied in knots. And if there were anyone who could tempt him into putting down roots, it would be Bridgette and her adorable son.
 
But as his next deployment nears, they make a startling discovery. Their passion, meant only for the here and now, might already be blossoming into something more…
 
**ONLY FOR YOU is published by Montlake (an Amazon imprint) and won’t be available on other ebook retailers, but you can download a FREE ereader app to read it HERE, or order the paperback.
 
 
 
She wrapped her hand around his long fingers, and his eyes heated, never wavering from hers.

She’d never met a man so intense. Her nerves were on fire as she led him toward the table where some of her family members were talking. Awareness of the significance of her decision, of the signals she was sending, slammed into her, and she slowed to catch her breath. Was she ready for this?

He put a finger beneath her chin and lifted, as he’d done at his front door, gazing thoughtfully down at her. “Would you rather I leave?”

She shook her head. “No. I’m just . . . I’m good.” And she was. She’d needed that pause to acknowledge and accept what she was feeling. She was nervous, but she wanted this. She wanted him. Her smile came genuinely, and earned her one in return. “Come on.”
She became more nervous as they approached the table. Willow was practically sitting in
Zane’s lap as they mooned over each other. Piper and Talia were scoping out some guy across the room, and Ben was in a heated discussion with Aurelia. She shouldn’t be nervous. This was her normal.

Except normal didn’t usually include holding hands with a man she wanted to strip naked and devour.
 
“Well, well, well. If it isn’t the naked neighbor.” Mischief danced in Piper’s eyes as she pushed to her feet and strutted around the table in her skinny jeans and slinky little blouse. She set her hands on her hips, running an assessing eye over Bodhi.

His jaw clenched.

“Bodhi, this is my sister Piper. She works in construction and is around guys all day, which means she has absolutely no filter. Please take her with a grain of salt.”

He flashed a cocky grin. “For the record, I had a towel on.”

“For the record,” Piper said, “she wished you didn’t.”
 
 
 
 
 
Only for You (Sugar Lake #2)Only for You by Melissa Foster
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #2, in the Sugar Lake series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding of the series, I recommend reading this great series in order.


Bridgette has a lot on her plate. Being a single mom is not east. She has had drama in her past, and she is trying not to make more for her son to have in the future. If only she could resist her neighbor!


Bodhi has no intention of giving in to temptation. Just because he is attracted to the sexy Bridgette, does not mean he has to act on it. He knows he cannot offer her a future, so what can you do?


This book was full of heat and fun right from the start. I loved that the hero could be more than what he limited himself to be. This was a great example that not all books have to reach for an HEA to give us one. I loved that these characters felt very real and the situations easy to relate to. This series is just so good!
