The Worst Best Man – Mia Sosa

The Worst Best Man CoverCritically acclaimed author Mia Sosa delivers a sassy, steamy enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy about a woman whose new job requires her to work side-by-side with the best man who ruined her wedding: her ex-fiancé’s infuriating, irritating, annoyingly handsome brother.

But despite that embarrassing blip from her past, Lina’s managed to make other people’s dreams come true as a top-tier wedding coordinator in DC. After impressing an influential guest, she’s offered an opportunity that could change her life. There’s just one hitch… she has to collaborate with the best (make that worst) man from her own failed nuptials.

Tired of living in his older brother’s shadow, marketing expert Max Hartley is determined to make his mark with a coveted hotel client looking to expand its brand. Then he learns he’ll be working with his brother’s whip-smart, stunning—absolutely off-limits—ex-fiancée. And she loathes him.

If they can survive the next few weeks and nail their presentation without killing each other, they’ll both come out ahead. Except Max has been public enemy number one ever since he encouraged his brother to jilt the bride, and Lina’s ready to dish out a little payback of her own.

But even the best laid plans can go awry, and soon Lina and Max discover animosity may not be the only emotion creating sparks between them. Still, this star-crossed couple can never be more than temporary playmates because Lina isn’t interested in falling in love and Max refuses to play runner-up to his brother ever again…(Goodreads) Goodreads

House Rules – Ruby Lang

ROOMMATE WANTED to share a gorgeous sun-filled apartment in Central Harlem. Must love cats. No ex-husbands or wives need apply.

House Rules CoverSeventeen years ago, different dreams pulled Simon Mizrahi and Lana Kuo apart. But when Lana takes a position as a chef back in Manhattan, her apartment search puts her right in her ex-husband’s path. Music teacher Simon is also hunting for a new place to live, and when Lana proposes they be platonic roomies, well…it’s not the worst idea he’s ever heard.

A sunny uptown two-bedroom sounds far more appealing than the cramped, noisy space where he’s currently struggling to work. Still, Simon has seen firsthand that Lana’s a flight risk, so he agrees on a trial basis.

Three months. With strict boundaries.

Living together again feels wonderfully nostalgic, but when the ex-couple’s lingering feelings rise to the surface, the rules go out the window.

Of course, chemistry was never their problem. But while Simon’s career feels back on solid footing, Lana is still sorting out what she wants. With their trial period soon coming to an end, they’ll have to decide if their living arrangement was merely a sexy trip down memory lane or a reunion meant to last. (Goodreads) Goodreads

The Ward of Nightingale Hall – Ennis Rook Bashe

The Ward of Nightingale Hall CoverIt’s been five years since orphaned Ivy became the ward of the wealthy de Nightingale family, but she’s never thought of the other teens as her siblings- especially not Henry de Nightingale, her charismatic and clever kindred spirit, whose powerful magic is slowly killing him in a way he trusts only her to prevent. As long as Ivy has known Henry, she’s been uncomplainingly and utterly in love with him, and just as ready to defend him from anyone who ignorantly assumes that he’s not a “real man” due to being transgender. But Henry always goes out of his way to tell her how small and funny she is, how much he appreciates her friendship, and how he sees her as more or less part of the family. Obviously his sentiments towards her are of a completely different sort.

She has no idea that Henry feels the same way, but believes that she only pities him due to his condition.

When Ivy’s impending betrothal, a kidnapping by Henry’s abusive former fiancée, and a dangerous curse give them much more than hidden pining to worry about, they may actually wind up admitting how they feel… (Goodreads) Goodreads
