Take the Fall by Marquita Valentine
Publisher: Loveswept (July 21, 2015)
Series: Boys of the South, 7
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Take a trip down south and discover just how hot those sultry, southern nights can get with the Boys of the South series by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Marquita Valentine.

Sent to prison for a crime he didn’t commit, Marine Seth O'Connor has finally come back home to bury his grandmother. Only, the one person he blames for his time in jail, is the one person he has to work with to settle his grandmother's estate--Rowan Simmons.

For five years, Rowan Simmons has lived life on her terms, vowing to never fall for any man. They're all full of empty promises, and they all leave when they get what they want. But when her sexy former flame, Seth, comes back to Forrestville, North Carolina, Rowan's vow not to fall starts to crumble.

Can Seth and Rowan protect their hearts, or will their undeniable chemistry burn them both?

It's just such a beautiful cover! Very soft colors and tender pose. 

We're fans of Marquita's books, so we're anxiously awaiting this book, regardless of the cover. :D

Kame's Pick:

Crushed by Lauren Layne
Publisher: Flirt (April 14, 2015)
Series: Redemption, 2
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance

Lauren Layne’s latest novel about the healing power of redemption tells the story of a crush gone wickedly wrong, proving that what you want isn’t always what you need.

Growing up in New York, Michael St. Claire never expected to spend his twenties wearing cowboy boots. But that was before he learned about his real father, a total stranger with a family in Cedar Grove, Texas. Once in the Lone Star State, Michael meets Kristin Bellamy, who is exquisitely refined and everything Michael always thought he wanted in a woman. The only problem is that Kristin is dating Michael’s new half brother, Devon.

Kristin’s mouthy, curvy sister Chloe has always been in love with Devon Patterson. So when Michael offers to help Chloe break up Devon and Kristin, Chloe agrees to a deal that seems too good to be true. Before long, Chloe finally gets her man, only to make a startling discovery: She no longer wants the guy she had to fight for—she wants the one who stood by her side.

After all he and Chloe have been through, Michael swears he’s damaged goods. Can Chloe convince him that love is worth the risk?

Pat's Pick:

Thoughtful by S.C. Stephens
Publisher: Forever (February 24, 2015)
Series: Thoughtless, 1.5
Genre: NA Contemporary

A new novel in the Thoughtless series from #1 New York Times bestselling author S. C. Stephens! 

Every story has two sides, and in this new book, the epic love story between Kiera and Kellan is shown through his eyes. 

All Kellan Kyle needs is his guitar, and some clean sheets of paper. Growing up in a house that was far from a home, he learned a hard lesson: You're worthless. Now his life is comfortably filled with passionate music, loyal band mates, and fast women...until he meets her. 

Kiera makes him ache for more. Makes him feel for the first time that he's worth more. But there's one problem - she's his best friend's girl. 

Just when Kellan thought his emotional defenses were rock solid, Kiera's indecisive heart wreaks havoc on his soul, changing him forever. Losing Kiera is not an option.
