Each month, I will post up a pair (or more) of books. I would like you to vote on a choice. Yes! You will have the job of telling me what to read from my pile each month. I welcome your vote no matter what reason you choose (frivolous, serious or otherwise) that particular book and do share your reason in the comments just because I’m nosy. I will of course share my thoughts on the book itself in my review post.
This month I’m going with a couple of standalone contemporaries from New to Me authors.
Nudging Cupid by Kerri Williams
It’s lights, camera and love on the set of Nudging Cupid- Australia’s new television show and Ivy Mason has big plans. Unfortunately, when it comes to love, nothing goes to plan.
Nudging Cupid was to be Ivy’s first production, the ladder to her success. All she had to do was get three sexy as sin bachelors to find love in a mansion of twelve beautiful woman and capture it all on film for Australia to watch. How hard could that be?
But all Ivy’s plans go awry when she comes into contact with the dark haired, blue eyed, Owen Radcliff. Somehow, against all her best judgment, Ivy falls for one of her bachelors.
Owen Radcliff’s wasn’t looking for love– he was looking for revenge. Infiltrating the latest Australian reality tv show was his only way to do it. But when he saves the life of the show’s producer, Owen is suddenly torn between the vow of revenge for his sister and the need to protect Ivy- even from himself.
California Sunset by Casey Dawes
Divorced mother Annie Gerhard meets rugged new bookstore owner John Johnson at the worst possible time in her life. Her high tech company is threatening to lay her off if she doesn’t move from California to New Jersey and her 15-year-old son David is causing trouble. The recession has hit Silicon Valley hard and there are no jobs for a middle manager, even if she hates what she does. And this is no time for romance, no matter how good the man looks in his jeans.
John has escaped Montana memories of a deceased wife and betraying girlfriend by buying an independent bookstore in California. He’s got bigger problems than falling for a spunky woman with control issues. Keeping a bookstore afloat in a recession and finding a home where he can stable his horse are all he can handle right now.
Unless . . .
John and Annie must both face their pasts in order to greet the future. Can they risk it?
