 Release Date: November 23

57992122. sy475

Riggs Stanton is a thief.
He’s also a liar, a jerk, and a playboy jock.
Sure, I might have thought we had a connection.
I might have thought he was worth breaking my “no dating” rule.
He might have even given me the best orgasm I’ve ever experienced to date.
But it was a farce.
A trick.
Another lie.
And I don’t make mistakes twice.

Now he says he needs me.
One week of my help and I never have to deal with him again.
For ten grand, I can suffer anything for seven days.
Even Riggs Stanton.

Except…

The more time I spend with him, the more I get to know him, the more I question myself.
What if what we shared before was real, and it’s everything else that’s fake?

****Better With You is the second interconnected standalone in the Better Love series by Brit Benson.
This enemies-to-lovers new adult romance is sassy, sexy, and has a guaranteed HEA.
It is not necessary to read Love You Better before enjoying Better With You, but Better With You will contain minor spoilers for Love You Better.

One secret kiss under the mistletoe can never lead to happily ever after…right?

Now, she’s completely over it. And when he shows up at the annual holiday party, she will not let herself repeat past mistakes. This time, she’ll stay far away from the mistletoe…
 
Ashton doesn’t lose control. Ever. Well, except for that one time. His focus has always been on completing his residency and fellowship programs. But seeing the gorgeous redhead again makes him think that losing a little control, just once more, might be just what the doctor ordered…
 
Will the magic of the season—with an assist from a certain mischievous matchmaker—convince Nora and Ashton to take a second chance on love? It might just take a Christmas miracle…

A pact made.
Two orphans who vowed to never part.

I was selfish—for once, I had to be.
The last time I saw Callum he was standing at the dormer window as I sat in the back seat of the car.
His dark eyes foreign to me.
The hatred that radiated from his glare shot through me with more force than a silver bullet.

Still Falling for You, an emotional, angsty, second-chance romance from USA Today & Wall Street Journal bestselling author Siobhan Davis is available now!

Once there was a boy, with messy blond hair, vibrant blue eyes, and the most dazzling smile, who helped to mend all the dark, broken pieces inside me. 

Ryder made a bad situation better. Falling for him wasn’t just inevitable—it was the stars aligning and our souls connecting at the deepest level. 

Plans were made, and for the first time ever, I had hope. I believed in the future we were going to build together. 

Until he left, without even saying goodbye.  

Years have passed, and though I have tried to move on, my heart still lingers on the boy who claimed it. 

Now he’s back, saying he wants another chance. 

And I’m terrified I’m not finished falling.

Review – Misplaced Mistletoe by Isabel Jolie

59108520. sy475

Misplaced Mistletoe 
(A standalone novella)

Publication Date: November 8, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Novella/Second Chance/Holiday Romance

Author: Isabel Jolie

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Reading this book was like watching an adorable holiday movie, full of charm with all the holiday mistletoe moments.

Nora and Ashton’s story moved back and forth between past and present from the first time they met at a holiday party to the present when they reconnect.

While their meet-cute is a sort of a drunken hookup where they first kissed under the mistletoe, there was a connection that neither one of them could deny. However, Nora was fresh in New York City and just beginning her job. She really didn’t have time to commit to a long term relationship, but neither did Ashton. He was attending med school and in deep in his surgical residency, but he didn’t exactly end their brief time together in the best way and now it’s eight years later and Nora is once again standing under the mistletoe.

Nora is steadfast in trying to keep Ashton in her past. She doesn’t want to repeat the mistakes she’s made before by letting Ashton in, but he’s relentless in his pursuit of her this time around. Knocking down her walls and forcing his way past of every obstacle she throws up. This time he’s ready for a relationship and he doesn’t want to lose her again, not for another eight years.

A great novella just in time for the holiday season.

Synopsis:

One secret kiss under the mistletoe can never lead to happily ever after…right?

Once upon a time, Nora shared the hottest kiss ever—followed by an equally steamy Christmas—with her boss’s super-sexy brother. Then he ghosted her. That was eight years ago. Now, she’s completely over it. And when he shows up at the annual holiday party, she will not let herself repeat past mistakes. This time, she’ll stay far away from the mistletoe…

Ashton doesn’t lose control. Ever. Well, except for that one time. His focus has always been on completing his residency and fellowship programs. But seeing the gorgeous redhead again makes him think that losing a little control, just once more, might be just what the doctor ordered…

Will the magic of the season—with an assist from a certain mischievous matchmaker—convince Nora and Ashton to take a second chance on love? It might just take a Christmas miracle…

Review – Jingle Bell Beard by Julie Kriss

59421374. sy475

Jingle Bell Beard; Kringle Family Christmas #3 
(An interconnected standalone)

Publication Date: November 5, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Sports/Second Chance/Holiday Romance

Author: Julie Kriss

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A super cute holiday book that will get you in the mood for the holiday season.

Matt Kringle comes from a family that runs a holiday family business and with a name like Kringle that’s perfect, but the business is currently in crisis. Jasmine was Matt’s high school girlfriend who dumped him seventeen years ago, but now is the PR guru hired to help out the Kringle family to get their business back in the black. Matt doesn’t necessarily care about the business, but he does care about Jasmine. So, since he’s currently benched with the NHL, it looks like he’s heading home for the holidays.

Matt returns home, all because Jasmine asked for his help, but truly it doesn’t take much everytime she asks for a favor. It may have been seventeen years, but Matt will do anything to get her back. He’s never forgotten her and he hopes she feels the same.

Light on drama and loaded with Christmas cheer, this family holiday book is excellent to begin the holiday season and interconnected with Matt’s siblings for the perfect Kringle trilogy, but also can be read as a complete standalone.

The Grump Who Stole Christmas (Kringle Family Christmas, #1) Very Merry Married (Kringle Family Christmas, #2)

Synopsis:

My to do list:
Revive my crashed PR career.
Turn around the Kringle family business by Christmas.
Convince my ex-boyfriend, NHL legend Matt “the Mountain” Kringle, to help me, even though I broke his heart when we were seventeen.
Easy, right?

Matt is huge, he’s hot, and he’s the grumpiest player in the league. I’ll have to brave his bad attitude and his sexy beard if I want him to help bail out the family business and put my career back on track. I’ll also have to try to forget – again – what an amazing kisser he is.

None of it is going to be easy. Not when Matt’s arrival in town leads to the Airport Incident and the Candy Cane Scandal – talk about embarrassing. But as Matt and I navigate disaster after disaster together, I’ll have to get over the fact that I never got over him. And that love with Matt is a game I just might want to play.

Review – Love, Artifacts, and You by Sarah Ready

Love, Artifacts, and You; Soul Mates in Romeo #4 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: October 26, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Second Chance/Intrigue/Contemporary Romance

Author: Sarah Ready

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Oh, Lord, the town of love is hot, hot, HOT!!

In this second chance romance, Sarah Ready brings the steam, intense plot, and soul deep love to Romeo, NY and it’s her hottest book yet.

Emma and Andrew have known each other since childhood and they share the same passion when it comes to finding the lost treasures of the world. They fell in love when they were teenagers, but were torn apart for a decade. When Emma lands in Romeo, NY after losing everything, she is told she will find not only her soulmate but the lost treasure of Romeo, Emma finally has hope for the first time in ten years.

Andrew and Emma may have spent the last decade apart, but everytime they are together they have passion and their deep, lifelong love leaps off the page. No matter what plans or thoughts they may have had before, fly out of the window when they see one another. It’s like you can literally see their souls reaching out to one another, wrapping up, and twineing around each other so they never leave each others side. It’s really beautiful and intense.

I loved this passionate story that was a little Indiana Jones and all about love.

Plans were made, and for the first time ever, I had hope. I believed in the future we were going to build together. 
Until he left, without even saying goodbye.  

Years have passed, and though I have tried to move on, my heart still lingers on the boy who claimed it. 
Now he’s back, saying he wants another chance. 

And I’m terrified I’m not finished falling. 

This book was previously published as Only Ever You. It has received a makeover and undergone a fresh round of proofreading, but the story has not changed. 

Due to mature situations and some dark themes, this angst-filled romance is only recommended to readers aged eighteen and older. Some scenes may be triggering. Please read the note at the start of the book.

Blog Tour – Missing Maverick by Anna Brooks

 Release Date: October 14
 
I was going to love her until my last breath, and she promised to do the same… but she lied.
Cricket McBride packed up without warning, ditching our small town and the life we were going to build together. She left me with tears in her eyes, a kiss on my cheek, and an empty heart that had done nothing but hardened over the years.
My life wasn’t what I thought it would be, but I’d long since accepted it for what it was. I was content with working on my family ranch and being the best father I could. And I was fine with that.
Or so I thought.
When Cricket returned, one look was all it took for me to admit I still cared, but it wasn’t until I saw the marks on her skin and the pain in her soul that I realized just how deep that love went. Because the same hands that held her tight also promised to protect her… and I never broke a promise.

Review – Missing Maverick by Anna Brooks

56221498. sy475

Missing Maverick; Ryder Ranch #3 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: October 14, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Single Dad/Second Chance/Contemporary Romance

Author: Anna Brooks

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Full of angst, second chances, and lots of family. There is a ton of emotion in this third Ryder Ranch book, so get a box of tissues ready.

There were so many people affected when Cricket McBride left town over a decade ago. She not only was Mavericks girlfriend, she was woven into the very town, the very Ryder family. When Cricket left she left Maverick, his brothers, his sister and other people in their small town. Moving back wouldn’t be easy, but Cricket is returning after nearly fifteen years without a word. While making amends won’t be easy she doesn’t plan to stay hidden and she’ll start with apologizing to the man she hurt the most.

Cricket had no idea Maverick was a father, two times over. While she was living in New York, married to another man, she never envisioned that he would have children with someone else, but the truth is, Maverick hasn’t been living his best life. He’s been wallowing in misery since Cricket left. While he loves his daughters, he doesn’t exactly love the women he fathered them with. Does he picture his life differently…every day. He pictures living with Cricket and raising his children with the woman who still holds his heart, but does he trust Cricket….not a chance.

Can these two pick up the pieces after so much time, so much pain, so much water under the bridge?

Missing Maverick is full of emotions. Cricket played an integral part in so many peoples lives that this book weaves through a lot of the Ryder family as she makes amends. It’s a story about redemption, forgiveness, and second chances.

Cover Reveal – Misplaced Mistletoe by Isabel Jolie

Isabel Jolie has revealed the cover for Misplaced Mistletoe!

Releasing November 8, 2021

One secret kiss under the mistletoe can never lead to happily ever after…right?
 
Once upon a time, Nora shared the hottest kiss ever—followed by an equally steamy Christmas—with her boss’s super-sexy brother. Then he ghosted her. That was eight years ago. Now, she’s completely over it. And when he shows up at the annual holiday party, she will not let herself repeat past mistakes. This time, she’ll stay far away from the mistletoe…
 
Ashton doesn’t lose control. Ever. Well, except for that one time. His focus has always been on completing his residency and fellowship programs. But seeing the gorgeous redhead again makes him think that losing a little control, just once more, might be just what the doctor ordered…
 
Will the magic of the season—with an assist from a certain mischievous matchmaker—convince Nora and Ashton to take a second chance on love? It might just take a Christmas miracle…

Review – Forbidden to Love by Siobhan Davis

58721178. sy475

Forbidden to Love 
(An interconnected standalone)

Publication Date: September 30, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Dark/Forbidden/Second Chance/Mafia Romance

Author: Siobhan Davis

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Forbidden to Love is so appropriately titled because this book made me sad, sad, so super sad. 😩

Growing up in the mafia world there is no wiggle room when it comes to the rules. Natalia Mazzone has been in love with Leo Messina her entire life, but Leo works for her father and Natalia is the only daughter of a mafia don. Her marriage was decided and contracted before she even knew what love was. Her life wasn’t her own, her feelings never taken into consideration, her choices not up for discussion. Natalia was a pawn to strengthen the family and nothing more.

It’s sad…no matter how much Natalia and Leo want to be together their literal lives are on the line if they tried to be together. Leo would be six feet under if he took the liberties he wanted to, the very ones Natalia wants him to, but also realizes that her father wouldn’t hesitate to follow through on his threats.

Years go by and they each do their duty, and it’s so sad…have I made my point…,these two never stop loving each other even though they can never be together. It’s heartbreaking as they go on with their lives, but only living with half of their soul. My own heart was broken throughout this book as everything played out.

This story contains heart, suspense, angst, and most of all tons of emotion. Siobhan is the queen of pulling heart strings and this forbidden tale proves once again that she is the master of pulling every last one.

Synopsis:

A DARK MAFIA SECOND CHANCE FORBIDDEN ROMANCE

Natalia Mazzone has grown up knowing she is promised to a made man. As the only daughter of one of New York’s most powerful mafia dons, she knows she can’t refuse. It’s her duty, and she would never dishonor her beloved father.

But the man she’s promised to is a monster. And there is nothing but torture, pain, and heartache lying in wait.

So, she grabs happiness when she finds it—in the somewhat reluctant arms of Leonardo Messina.

Leo is her brother’s best friend. A soldato for the Mazzone famiglia.A man with strong ambition and an even stronger resolve. He won’t allow them to give in to temptation, so Natalia is forced to love him from afar.

Until one forbidden night changes everything, and she readily hands Leo the key to her heart.

Leo risked everything for the one woman he can never have. He doesn’t regret it. It saved Natalia from a life of hell, but his actions set her on a different course.

One that doesn’t involve him.

Years have passed, and his feelings remain the same. Yet he keeps his distance, dedicating himself to his new role as underboss to Bennett Mazzone, while the love of his life is married to another man.

Until a twist of fate puts Natalia in his path again, and this time, he is powerless to resist.

Releasing September 30th.

The Deceit of a Devil; The Boys of Clermont Bay #4 
(#2 within a duet, #4 within a series)

Publication Date: September 23, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Second Chance/Duet/New Adult/Enemies-to-Lovers Romance

Author: Holly Renee

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Redemption, heartbreak, and big angsty emotional turmoil with lots of tears…Holly Renee pulled out all the stops on the way to second chance love for the second half of this duet.

Carson and Allie have danced around each other for years….YEARS!! Of course their love story was going to be big with all the feels and lots of bumps. They were not going to escape each other without bruises, but dang…grab the tissues before getting comfy. Their story is hard won.

Yes, Carson had a lot of groveling to do after Eli let the cat out of the bag on the virgin bet right at the end of book one, but honestly, their hurt runs so much deeper than any bet. Allie deciding to sleep with Carson was because she finally felt comfortable with him again, she was hurt only because she figured Carson was playing her all along. Carson had been mistreating her for years and was she wasn’t sure if she was being duped or not. Sleeping with him was just the top of her bad decision making when it came to him and she was more angry at herself for falling into his traps.

Trust is a delicate thing and just at the moment Carson had been earning it back, Eli broke it for him. Carson finds himself at a loss. He never meant to hurt Allie and he could have cared less about the bet, but how does he get her trust back when he’d barely had it to begin with? He works hard at trying to earn it back, but Allie isn’t easily swayed by his pretty words this time around.

These two have so much to work on in regards to past hurts, present hurts and how not to hurt each other in the future. Sealing up those cracks so they stop causing damage and yet also focusing on just being happy is a lot harder than it looks.

This story is all encompassing with the emotions, plus full of tons of steam!!  Carson and Allie are actually an amazing couple, now there is one couple left in the Clermont bunch…will they or won’t they? I’m excited to see how the last ones standing play out.

Synopsis:

Sinless. Stunning. Damaged. Tempting. Allie Taylor had been the girl I hated for as long as I could remember.

And now she loathed me just as much.

It didn’t matter that I betrayed her to save her.

Completely devastated and infuriated by my dishonesty, she had no intentions of ever trusting me again.

Her trust was shattered, her hate raging on with each second. She would never look at me the same again.

Our past was full of pain and lies that could never be forgotten.

I knew what I did was irreparable, but I refused to let her walk away without another chance.

I should have left things in the past.

I didn’t.
I couldn’t.
I won’t.

I needed her. Even if it cost me everything.

Blurb:

I can’t have Elijah Iverson.

I can’t have him because he’s my older brother’s best friend. I can’t have him because I broke his heart five years ago; because he’s now engaged to someone else—someone kind and dependable who deserves his whiskey eyes, his soft mouth, his fierce intellect.

I can’t have Elijah because I’ve chosen God instead.

The Bell brothers, though . . . well, we don’t exactly have the greatest track record with vows. But I’m determined to do this monk thing right—to pledge myself to a cloistered life and spend the rest of my years in chastity and prayer. But now Elijah’s here. He’s here and he’s coming with me on my European monastery road trip, and between the whispered confessions and the stolen kisses and the moments bent over an ancient altar, my vows are feeling flimsier by the day.

And vows or not, I know in my heart that it would take more than a good and holy monk to resist Elijah Iverson right now. It would take a saint.

And we all know that I’m no saint.

(This is the third full-length standalone in the Priest Collection, featuring Father Bell’s brother, Aiden Bell. You do not have to read Priest or Sinner to read Saint.)

Blurb:

I can’t have Elijah Iverson.

I can’t have him because he’s my older brother’s best friend. I can’t have him because I broke his heart five years ago; because he’s now engaged to someone else—someone kind and dependable who deserves his whiskey eyes, his soft mouth, his fierce intellect.

I can’t have Elijah because I’ve chosen God instead.

The Bell brothers, though . . . well, we don’t exactly have the greatest track record with vows. But I’m determined to do this monk thing right—to pledge myself to a cloistered life and spend the rest of my years in chastity and prayer. But now Elijah’s here. He’s here and he’s coming with me on my European monastery road trip, and between the whispered confessions and the stolen kisses and the moments bent over an ancient altar, my vows are feeling flimsier by the day.

Meet A.L. Woods

A.L. Woods is an author of rollercoaster romances, caffeine aficionado, and collector of Sailor Moon paraphernalia.

She lives 40 minutes west of Toronto, Ontario with her partner, Michael, and their 8lb larger-than-life miniature dachshund, Maia-whom they lovingly refer to as their ‘doghter.’

Woods can be found holed away in her office writing her next novel with a bowl of Nibs within arm’s reach. When she’s not writing, she’s likely belting out an ad-libbed song, emotionally investing in a fictional bad boy with a strong jawline and fluency in sarcasm or inventing fresh ways to procrastinate.

She believes that burritos should be in their own food group, loves the fall, winged liner, and listening to metalcore at an offensive level.

Excerpt:

Why leave a life as a millionaire? Why leave a perfect boyfriend?

Why leave family and a cute, derelict farmhouse and sex—God, why give up sex?

Because if I hadn’t, that darkness spilling in through my farmhouse window would have taken me. I’d wanted it to take me. I was ready for it to take me.

And somehow I managed to crawl my way here instead, gasping like a drowning man who’d just clawed his way to shore. I managed to save my own life—or I managed to let God save my life.

Either way, that was the cost of surviving. My old life.

Him.

Elijah scrubs his hands over his head, sinking into the tight curls for a moment. It’s longer now; he used to wear his hair short, with crisp, immaculate edges. Another change I wasn’t there to see. I wasn’t sitting on the couch with him when he rubbed his face and mused about growing a beard; I wasn’t poking him out of the way with my toothbrush while he faced the mirror, posing this way and that to imagine longer hair. I wasn’t there in bed with him at night, my legs tangled with his, while he complained about his job or feeling bored with his work, I wasn’t there when he sold his first article or when he submitted a portfolio to Mode.

I wasn’t there, because I was here. Praying and chopping wood.

I wasn’t there, and this Jamie person was.

Elijah stands up, facing away from me for a moment, before he turns back. The sun abruptly shifts through a break in the clouds and drives back the pre-rain murk in the cloister, illuminating Elijah in a haze of gold.

If I were to make a stained-glass window displaying an image of God’s creativity and capacity for beauty, it would be this. It would be Elijah with an unshaven face and in those shorts, it would be his eyes in that dark gold-brown hue, it would be his mouth, that jaw, that throat. It would be a saint in low-top sneakers with a halo of Kansas sunshine around his head.

He pulls his lower lip between his teeth for just an instant before releasing it, and then he straightens up, looking at me with an expression that defies interpretation. Only his eyes seem beyond his usual control, blazing with a heat that might be fury or grief, I can’t tell.

“I loved you for a long time after you left,” he says. “I thought you should know that.”

He doesn’t have to say the next part, because I already know; I already know he doesn’t love me anymore.

And with a small nod, he turns and walks out of the cloister, the first spots of rain blooming on his shirt and his head bowed, as if in prayer.

Blurb:

I can’t have Elijah Iverson.

I can’t have him because he’s my older brother’s best friend. I can’t have him because I broke his heart five years ago; because he’s now engaged to someone else—someone kind and dependable who deserves his whiskey eyes, his soft mouth, his fierce intellect.

I can’t have Elijah because I’ve chosen God instead.

Review – At First Hate by K.A. Linde

57111547. sy475

At First Hate; Coastal Chronicles #2 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: September 7, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Small Town/New Adult/Enemies-to-Lovers/Second Chance/Contemporary Romance

Author: K.A. Linde

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Beautiful, tearful, angsty, ALL THE FEELS!!

At First Hate is a second chance love story that bruised my heart with all the angst…(sobbing)…it was a hard won love that had me in its grips from the very first page until the very end. So good!!

Told only from the POV of Marley Nelson, we weave back in forth from the past to the present and how one man, Derek Ballentine, has affected her life over and over again. This K.A. Linde type of book is what I absolutely love from her. It’s page turning, gut-twisting, and a one of a kind story that I can’t put down once I start. If you read Hold The Forevers, a few characters might seem familiar, along with the writing style that this book is written in.

Derek Ballentine and Marley Nelson first meet in high school and it was certainly a meeting of – she resented him and he just wanted in her skirt. Total teenage hormones. They continue to have a back and forth kind of frenemy zone where Derek doesn’t really know how to take Marley or how to subdue those hormones for years and unfortunately it creates bad decision making, dumb choices, and just plain old youth mistakes that work against them.

Weaving back and forth, through past and present, we get to witness how their relationship changes through time. The mistakes, the love, the loss, everything, but in the end will it be enough to finally push them past all the hate.

How do you ever get over your first love, because at the end of day, this is truly what Derek and Marley are, they just don’t know it for years…..oh, my bruised heart!!

I loved reading this angsty book and I can’t wait to return for more.

Synopsis:

A new stand alone enemies-to-lovers romance from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…

Derek Ballentine and I have always been on opposite sides of everything.

I went to a public Savannah high school. He went to a private Catholic school. I went to Duke on scholarship. He went to UNC as a legacy. When we both end up at Harvard for graduate school and we’re finally on a level playing field, I think it’s all going to change.

I was wrong.

The only thing that changed was ending up in his bed.

Now my grandma has passed away, and Derek is the attorney helping the people trying to steal her legacy. I’ll do anything to stop that from happening. Even take on my lifetime enemy.

I hate him at first sight…but I also want him at first hate.

Blog Tour – Wilder by Anna Brooks

 Release Date: August 26
 

56221487. sy475

I was too young to understand the beauty of what I held in my arms when she crashed into my world.

Frankie Young was never far from my mind, so when she came back into my life after nearly a decade, it was as if no time had passed.

After we reconnected in more ways than one, there was no denying what we had was extraordinary and, I thought, forever. But when she discovered something I’d been hiding, she gave up on us without giving me a chance to explain.

My lies broke her heart, but her walking away shattered what was left of mine. I thought that was the end for us… until Frankie and I found ourselves bound together for life. While we navigated our new found destiny, not only did we have to fight for each other, but we had to protect our future from someone who didn’t want us to have one together.

Meet Anna Brooks

9827166

The first time Anna tried to read a romance novel, her hair caught on fire when she leaned over a candle to sneak a peek at her mom’s Harlequin. She thinks being hit on the head with a shirtless Fabio until the smoke cleared is what sparked the flame for her love of romance. 

Anna was born in Wisconsin, but currently lives in Texas with her husband and two boys. 

 

She writes sexy romance that always has a happy ending and loves bringing characters back for cameos. Less than six degrees of separation connects any of her novels. 

 

When she’s not writing or reading, she’s watching reruns of her favorite romcoms, talking to her dog and cat like they’re human, eating carbs, or practicing hand lettering. 

 

She loves to hear from readers and can be found on social media as @annabrooksauth everywhere.
