TBQ: Not a romance. But! It's such a simple but lovely cover -- from the view to the dress to the font. It just makes me happy.





The Boy Next Door by Stevie J. Cole
Publisher: Carina Press (September 1, 2018)
Series: Sorority Secrets, 2
Genre: Contemporary Romance -- Erotic


Sorority Secrets: The virgins of Beta Kappa Nu would do anything for each other. Even auction off their most valuable asset… 

I’ve been in love with Emma since we were thirteen years old.

That part is real. But nothing else they say about me is true.

The way she looks at me from across the room, how she makes my old T-shirts look good, how perfect she feels when she’s in my arms. That’s what I want to picture when I think about Emma. Not a crazy auction where she gives it up to some random creep.

I can’t let it happen. I won’t let it happen.

Despite the tattoos, despite the rumors, despite my reputation as a class-A player—there’s never been anyone else. In my bed or in my heart.

It’s always been Emma.

This book is approximately 19,500 words.

For those times when size does matter. The Dirty Bits from Carina Press: quick and dirty, just the way we like it.

Series: Wellspring, 3
Genre: Contemporary Romance


For decades, the fate of Wellspring, Michigan, has been tied to the Wells family’s fortunes—for better and worse. Their corporation keeps the small town afloat, despite the greed and corruption at its heart. But now, as the next generation comes into its own, a new day dawns . . . 

It’s been years since Bryson Wells cut all ties to his hometown and family, going so far as to change his name and delete his social media accounts. He’s built a profession and a life for himself away from his domineering father, but as the man’s death draws near, Bryson finds himself back in Wellspring—and face to face with the woman who has a hold on his heart . . .

Jordan Clark’s life is not turning out quite as she planned. Instead of working towards her law degree, she’s in Wellspring caring for her ailing grandfather. Running into Bryson in the hospital brings back memories of the night their longtime friendship erupted into passion. The attraction between them has only gotten stronger. But Jordan will have to decide if Bryson’s love is real, or if he’s settling to get the family he’s always wanted. . .

Flaunt by E. Davies
Publisher: E. Davies (January 31, 2017)
Series: F-Word, 1
Genre: Contemporary Romance -- Queer, M/M


“He's waiting for me to ask, and I'm afraid.”

“I'm just one more gay guy here.”

Moving to the suburbs of L.A. was supposed to give Nic Montero a fresh start. After escaping his family, coming out as a gay trans man, and excelling in computer programming out of desperation to get financially stable or die, everything should be easy. But joining gay culture now, post-transition, feels impossible... until he runs into the force of nature that is Kyle. Everything Nic isn't, Kyle embodies. Green hair, garters and cut-off shorts, sports jerseys, and all, brash Kyle is the most gorgeous man he's ever laid eyes on, and he pulls Nic headlong into the center of his world. If only Nic felt like enough for a man like Kyle.

“One-night stands are my only option.”

Loud, loving, and too much for most men to handle, Kyle Everett catches eyes and occasionally scorn... even at his job at the local HIV charity, Plus. His days and nights are spent at work, his precious spare moments spent with his son, Kevin, when it's his turn to co-parent, or his best friend, drag queen River. He only has money or time for cheap flings, but the lanky otter who walks into his life makes Kyle want to hold him for longer than a night. He knows what it's like for Nic to be without a family, but he isn't brave enough to let this man into his life... until his charity is targeted by bigots, and Nic's there for him.

“I'll stay with you if you're brave enough to be you.”

Nic spent his twenties avoiding family and even his own femininity, but his yearning is impossible to ignore. Kyle's used to flying solo, but Nic offers him safety and fills gaps in his life he never realized existed and now can't stand. Living in close proximity, they can't run from their attraction, but they're each used to being rejected, with the emotional scars to prove it. Can two men who feel like they're not enough and too much find something just right?

Flaunt is a standalone gay romance novel with a happily ever after ending.
