Hi everyone! It’s time for another Top Most Anticipated Books post again. I will try to do these posts every month. If I skip a month then something came up or I didn’t have time to do one of these posts. Here is what coming in August.
1. Not My Romeo (The Game Changers #1) by Ilsa Madden-Mills
2. Southern Seducer (North Carolina Highlands #1) by Jessica Peterson
Publication Date: August 13
I’ve done a lot of stupid stuff in my life. But sleeping with my best friend tops the list.
Annabel and I have been close since college. When I left school to play pro football, she was there. While I collected Super Bowl rings and cars worth more than the house I grew up in—she was there.
I always assumed we’d end up together. Everyone did.
But by the time I retired from football, Bel was married. I thought I’d missed my shot at love.
So I buried myself in my new job as CEO of Blue Mountain Farm, a five-star resort my family and I built in the Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina. It seems like a good place to be alone with the secret I have to keep from her.
Now Bel is a divorced single mom, struggling to raise her daughter on her own—and it’s my turn to be there for her.
So I invite her and the baby up to the resort for some much needed R&R.
Then, in a moment of bonfire-and-bourbon induced weakness, I kiss her.
And the fallout could ruin everything.
3. Painting the Lines (Ace of Hearts #1) by Ashley R. King
Publication Date: August 25th
Amalie Warner wants another shot to prove that she can be a successful writer. After hitting the bestseller’s list nine years ago, she’s lost her spark. Feeling pressure from her father to leave her writing behind and to work for her family’s lucrative hotel business, she’s desperate to find inspiration for her next big idea, something that challenges and excites her, something real.
Enter Julian Smoke, a failed tennis player making a dream run for the US Open. After a chance meeting at a bar, Amalie hates him instantly. He’s cocky and arrogant, but Amalie knows his story could be her big break. Could he be more?
Everyone knows that in tennis, love means zero, but these two are about to change that.
Perfect for fans of The Hating Game and Wimbledon.
4. Sweet Surrender (King’s Trace Anti Heroes #1) by Sav R. Miller
Publication Date: August 1st
King’s Trace is run by ruthless criminals, but this made man is no match for a woman scorned.
The men in my life think I owe them.
My father, his associates, the mafia. Everyone has a debt to collect, and somehow that burden falls to me.
I’m being forced into a loveless marriage to pay off my father’s debts when the capo of the Montalto outfit intervenes with an offer I can’t refuse: his hand in exchange for protection.
But I’m not the one who needs protecting.
The men in my life value loyalty to our family over everything.
I’m supposed to, but my dark heart has a mind of its own.
My offer to marry Caroline is half-hearted; I set my eyes on the beautiful nymph and want her for myself.
I want to use her. Break her.
Turns out, someone else beat me to it.
Now all I want is her heart.
Sweet Surrender is an enemies to lovers, marriage of convenience, dark, erotic, small town mafia romance. Due to adult themes and scenes, it is recommended for ages 18 and older.
