Synopsis via Goodreads: Mona Lisa St. James made a deathbed promise that she would do anything to save her mother’s art gallery. Unfortunately, not only is The Red painted red, but it’s in the red. She soon realizes she has no choice but to sell it.
Just as she realizes she has no choice but to sell it, a mysterious man comes in after closing time and makes her an offer: He will save The Red if she agrees to submit to him for the period of one year.
The man is handsome, English, and terribly tempting…but surely her mother didn’t mean for Mona to sell herself to a stranger. Then again, she did promise to do anything to save The Red…
OUT ON GOOD BEHAVIOR by DAHLIA ADLER
“It isn’t just the way she feels, or smells, or tastes; it’s the way she sighs into my mouth, like: finally. Like: you found me. Like: this is everything I dreamed it would be.”
After the second installment in the Radleigh University series was a totally bust, I decided to put my binge-read of this series on hold until I was finally over my disappointment with the second book. I knew the final book was going to be my favorite and I didn’t want to go into it with any type of negative feelings and in the end, my decision to wait paid off because I ended up loving this book as much as I hoped I would.
Francesca Bellisaro is a sweet talker who can charm the pants off of anyone and that includes Samara Kazarian. But Samara is not looking for just a good time, she wants the real thing. Willing to give the monogamy lifestyle a shot, Frankie decides to hang up her old way for 30 days to see where a relationship with Samara could possibly go. But when Samara switches things up, will Frankie let Samara go or will she fight for a relationship she didn’t know she wanted in the first place?
A THOUSAND LETTERS by STACI HART
“There is no length to love; it’s infinite. It lives in you always. Hold onto it.”
A Thousand Letters is a contemporary romance inspired by Jane Austen’s Persuasion and I am an absolute sucker for anything Austen inspired so I was excited to snatch this new release up. I adored Hart’s previous Austen-inspired novel, Wasted Words, and I was hoping I would enjoy this book as well. Unfortunately, the cover ended up being my only favorite thing about this book.
The last time Elliot Marie Kelly saw Wade Winters was seven years. They were once young and so in love, but when Wade decided to change their plans, Elliot was not on board. So he left for the army and never looked back. Now seven years later, Wade has finally returned home due to a family emergency and he and Elliot are brought together again. The old flame reignites between the pair and these two will have to decide if their love is worth a second shot.
