Such A Ginger Read: On My TBR!


New to this feature? This is where I profess my love for a book(s) that I claim to be "Such a Ginger Read" based on its writing, characters, and/or setting. Bonus points if there's a pineapple! For this week I thought I'd change it up a bit and feature some books I've added to my TBR recently that I feel are "Such a Ginger Reads". As always, I hope I'm building your own reading piles and recommending some great books your way! Let me know in the comments.


STARLIGHT NIGHTS by Stacey Kade
To be published: January 9, 2018
About the book: At twenty-three, Calista Beckett is trying to overcome her early fame and fortune. The former savior of the world on Starlight is now a freshman at college--miles away from L.A. and her former existence. She sees it as her start to a new life, a normal life, one where she won't make the same mistakes she made before--a brush with heroin addiction and losing her freedom to her controlling mother, thanks to a court order.

Eric Stone played her older brother, Byron, on Starlight. But she's been in love with him pretty much since they kissed--her first kiss--while auditioning. When Eric shows up on campus out of the blue, Calista's struck immediately by two things: first, in spite of everything that's happened, she still feels something dangerous for him, and second, she's absolutely determined not to let him ruin her life again.

Only Eric's not going away so easily. [goodreads]

THIS LOVE STORY WILL SELF-DESTRUCT by Leslie Cohen
To be published: January 23, 2018
About the book: This is the classic tale of boy meets girl: Girl…goes home with someone else.

Meet Eve. She’s a dreamer, a feeler, a careening well of sensitivities who can’t quite keep her feet on the ground, or steer clear of trouble. She’s a laugher, a crier, a quirky and quick-witted bleeding-heart-worrier.

Meet Ben. He’s an engineer, an expert at leveling floors who likes order, structure, and straight lines. He doesn’t opine, he doesn’t ruminate, he doesn’t simmer until he boils over.

So naturally, when the two first cross paths, sparks don’t exactly fly. But then they meet again. And again. And then, finally, they find themselves with a deep yet fragile connection that will change the course of their relationship—possibly forever.

Follow Eve and Ben as they navigate their twenties on a winding journey through first jobs, first dates, and first breakups; through first reunions, first betrayals and, maybe, first love. This is When Harry Met Sally reimagined; a charming tale told from two unapologetically original points of view. With an acerbic edge and heartwarming humor, debut novelist Leslie Cohen takes us on a tour of what life looks like when it doesn’t go according to plan, and explores the complexity, chaos, and comedy in finding a relationship built to last. [goodreads]

THE WEDDING DATE by Jasmine Guillory
To be published: February 6, 2018
About the book: A groomsman and his last-minute guest are about to discover if a fake date can go the distance in a fun and flirty debut novel.

Agreeing to go to a wedding with a guy she gets stuck with in an elevator is something Alexa Monroe wouldn't normally do. But there's something about Drew Nichols that's too hard to resist.

On the eve of his ex's wedding festivities, Drew is minus a plus one. Until a power outage strands him with the perfect candidate for a fake girlfriend...

After Alexa and Drew have more fun than they ever thought possible, Drew has to fly back to Los Angeles and his job as a pediatric surgeon, and Alexa heads home to Berkeley, where she's the mayor's chief of staff. Too bad they can't stop thinking about the other...

They're just two high-powered professionals on a collision course toward the long distance dating disaster of the century--or closing the gap between what they think they need and what they truly want... [goodreads]

NO FILTER by Orlagh Collins
To be published: March 6, 2018
About the book: This poignant, sweepingly romantic contemporary YA debut is perfect for fans of Nicola Yoon and Jenny Han.

Anyone who follows Emerald on social media only sees a perfect life—a loving, wealthy family, a tight-knit group of friends, and a devoted internet following. But the truth hides behind the scenes of her perfectly framed, filtered photos . . . Emerald’s family is far from happy, and when she finds her mom unconscious on the bathroom floor, she can no longer keep it a secret.

Sent to stay with her grandmother in an isolated, wi-fi-free beach town while her mother recovers, Emerald fears the long, lonely summer. Then she meets Liam, an aspiring songwriter with his own troubles. But with secrets and lies all that they’re used to, can they really fall for each other—brave and true—with no filter?

The fresh, romantic debut novel is perfect for fans of Everything, Everything and To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. [goodreads]

How great do these four novels sound?! All of them publish in 2018, beginning in January, February, and March (I posted them in sequential order). I am REALLY looking forward to This Love Story Will Self-Destruct because it screams Such a Ginger Read to me with its characters, storyline, and how their relationship will take time to build. I am such a sucker for these types of stories. Can we say slow burn?? All four sound fabulous and I can't wait to read them. How about you?!

Sweet Summertime Reads 2017 Wrap-Up + ONE LAST GIVEAWAY!



I can't believe that I am already typing up my very last Sweet Summertime Reads post for this year. My, how this time has flown by. Even though summer isn't quite over (according to the calendar anyway), my summer ends in just two weeks. I'll be back in the classroom, getting ready for a new school year to begin.

But before we have a send-off to summer, I wanted to re-cap this year's fabulous Sweet Summertime Reads posts. I also wanted to take a moment to thank those who participated this year; whether that be authors, fellow bloggers, or instagram challenge friends, you've each made this round so enjoyable for me. So THANK YOU. It's been another successful, fun, great year!


  • In June we kicked off this round of Sweet Summertime Reads with a twitter chat (my first ever!) with YA authors Miranda Kenneally & Trish Doller. I had a lot of fun discussing their 2017 releases with you all and hope to host more fun twitter chats in the summers to come.


  • Next Trish Doller stopped by the blog & shared some of her writing inspirations for her new book IN A PERFECT WORLD. If you haven't picked up this YA contemporary masterpiece about discovering & conquering new cultures, then I definitely hope this post urges you to do so.


  • What's summer without some of my favorite Adult romance reading? I had to highlight my favorite writing duo Christina Lauren and what better way than celebrating their new release DATING YOU/HATING YOU. 


  • For my next post, I was thrilled to have YA contemporary writer Sara Biren on the blog as she answered some of my questions about her debut novel THE LAST THING YOU SAID. Y'all, this is one of my favorite reads of 2017 and I cannot stop talking/thinking about it. I sincerely hope it's already on your radar, if not already in your reading pile.


  • The month of June wrapped up with an amazing look at the oh so talented Andi, creator behind Cards by Andrea S. I love the crafty cards she comes up with, especially these one of a kind summer themed cards. Even though this giveaway has ended, you should definitely check out her etsy shop and browse all her other amazing cards.


  • July kicked off with a special treat from YA author Miranda Kenneally as we celebrated the release of her final installment in her Hundred Oaks series: COMING UP FOR AIR. I have really enjoyed this series and feel that this last one is the perfect conclusion to such a fabulous group of books. 


  • Next, we had another fun post from fellow Blogger and friend, Estelle. She shared with us how she was beating the heat in the city, along with a fun way to support her local indie you could enter to win a book of choice. Even though this giveaway has ended, there are still plenty of ways to discover your own ways to beat the heat this summer & support your local indies, too.


  • I tend to read a lot of contemporary (okay so, maybe that's ALL I read), but I know not everyone does -- especially during the summer. So I loved having Sarah, blogger + friend, sharing some of her favorite Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Adventure books. I felt this post spoke to those who enjoy a wide variety in their summer reading piles and enjoyed adding some new additions to my own!


  • The last post for this summer, came from debut author Katy Upperman. Her first novel publishes TOMORROW & I could not be more excited to celebrate her & her writing as part of Sweet Summertime Reads. I hope you'll check out KISSING MAX HOLDEN as it hits bookshelves tomorrow (August 1st). In the meantime to get to know this author & what she's working on next.

Thank you again, to all my readers here at GReads! for making this summer feature of mine such a huge success! It has become my favorite thing to blog about, and after its sixth year, I can definitely say I'll be back again next year for round seven!! But before we put a wrap on Sweet Summertime Reads 2017, I have one last giveaway for you... & this one is open to US + International readers (just make sure Book Depository ships to you).

THE SECRET HISTORY OF US by Jessi Kirby

I read this book not too long ago & immediately knew it would be a favorite of mine from YA author Jessi Kirby. She is such a talented author that I feel deserves more recognition. With each story she has written, she knows how to pull on my heart strings and completely engulf me in the story. Her latest does not disappoint. Since it publishes tomorrow (August 1st), I wanted to share one last Sweet Summertime Reads giveaway with my readers, and what better way than a book from one of MY favorite writers. I've been featuring Jessi's books in my Sweet Summertime Reads since the very beginning, so of course it's only fitting to close out this year with her latest.

About the book: Gorgeously written and emotionally charged, The Secret History of Us explores the difficult journey of a teenage girl who must piece her life together after losing her memory in a near-fatal accident.

When Olivia awakes in a hospital bed following a car accident that almost took her life, she can’t remember the details about how she got there. She figures the fog is just a symptom of being in a week-long coma, but as time goes on, she realizes she’s lost more than just the last several days of her life—she’s lost her memory of the last four years. Gone is any recollection of starting or graduating high school; the prom; or her steady boyfriend Matt. Trying to figure out who she is feels impossible when everyone keeps telling her who she was.

As Liv tries to block out what her family and friends say about who she used to be, the one person she hasn’t heard enough from is Walker, the guy who saved her the night her car was knocked off that bridge into the bay below. Walker is the hardened boy who’s been keeping his distance—and the only person Olivia inexplicably feels herself with. With her feelings growing for Walker, tensions rising with Matt, and secrets she can’t help but feel are being kept from her, Olivia must find her place in a life she doesn’t remember living.

Sweet Summertime Reads with Katy Upperman + GIVEAWAY



It's hard to believe that my summer is winding down. How did it all go by so fast?! In just a few weeks I'll be back in the classroom, preparing for a new school year of teaching. But before that begins, I have one last Sweet Summertime Reads post...

Debut author Katy Upperman is stopping by the blog today to answer some interview questions, as well as to celebrate her novel KISSING MAX HOLDEN, which pubs next week (August 1, 2017)!

I had the honor of reading an ARC of this book way back in January and I knew immediately it was a story I would feature on my blog this summer. It encompasses everything I love in a YA contemporary: from the emotional story about first love, family dynamics, to a strong young heroine navigating life with all its obstacles. Katy Upperman is an author to keep an eye on. Please welcome her to the blog & don't miss out on the giveaway at the bottom to win a signed copy of KISSING MAX HOLDEN (open to US only).


About the book: Kissing Max Holden was a terrible idea...

After his father has a life-altering stroke, Max Holden isn't himself. As his long-time friend, Jillian Eldridge only wants to help him, but she doesn't know how. When Max climbs through her window one night, Jill knows that she shouldn't let him kiss her. But she can't resist, and when they're caught in the act by her dad, Jill swears it'll never happen again. Because kissing Max Holden is a terrible idea.

With a new baby sibling on the way, her parents fighting all the time, and her dream of culinary school up in the air, Jill starts spending more and more time with Max. And even though her father disapproves and Max still has a girlfriend, not kissing Max is easier said than done. Will Jill follow her heart and allow their friendship to blossom into something more, or will she listen to her head and stop kissing Max Holden once and for all? [goodreads]


Author Interview with Katy Upperman


1. Please tell us a bit about your debut novel KISSING MAX HOLDEN.


KISSING MAX HOLDEN is about a baker girl named Jill who, against her better judgment, kisses her troubled childhood friend, Max, setting a whole series of problems in motion. Along with plenty of romantic angst, Jill’s facing a host of other challenges. She’s about to become the world’s most reluctant big sister, her dad’s pulling away from the family, and her dream of culinary school is suddenly up in the air. Plus, she just can’t make herself stay away from Max, even though he’s got a girlfriend.

My goal in writing KISSING MAX HOLDEN was to tell an entertaining and romantic story about longtime friends whose feelings develop into more, but also to explore loyalty and fidelity, and the way families and friendships can either strengthen or weaken under stressful situations.

2. I've followed your publishing career since you announced your book deal. I think it's so inspiring! Please share with us how you came about as a writer.

Thank you! I started writing back in 2008. I’d recently quit my teaching job to be a stay at home mama, and I was desperate for a creative outlet and a project all my own. Plus, I’d just read TWILIGHT, which I found compulsively readable and incredibly entertaining. I’ve always been a reader, so I thought I might try my hand at writing, too. Turns out getting a book published isn’t as easy as I’d assumed. I wrote (and rewrote) a lot of manuscripts before signing with my agent. And then I wrote even more manuscripts, because submissions dragged on, and heartbreaking close call after heartbreaking close call rolled in. It was a frustrating and discouraging time, and I definitely thought about calling it quits.

But then I came across Swoon Reads, Macmillan’s crowd-sourced YA imprint, and thought it might be what I needed to get my foot in the proverbial door. I researched the imprint and the process and the team, and read several of Swoon’s already published books. It became pretty clear that KISSING MAX HOLDEN could fit in among their list. And so, with my agent’s blessing, I submitted my manuscript to the site, where members proceeded to read, rate, and comment on it. (You can learn more about Swoon Reads and the process here.) Eventually, after weeks of bouncing between hopeful and doubtful, the Swoon Team emailed to let me know that they wanted to publish KISSING MAX HOLDEN. After so many years of work and waiting, I was ecstatic!

3. Which authors/books are your go-to Summertime Reads?

Oh, gosh – so many! Miranda Kenneally, Jessi Kirby, Emery Lord, Trish Doller, Jenny Han, Sarah Ockler, Morgan Matson, Siobhan Vivian… Can you tell I love contemporary YA? I especially love to read romances during the summer. Bonus points for beachy settings and/or road trips!

4. What are your plans for release day?

I’m celebrating KISSING MAX HOLDEN’s release with my family. My mom and dad are coming for a visit so, along with my husband and girls, we’re planning to drop in on Jilly and Max at some local bookstores, followed by lunch at one of my favorite Mexican restaurants. I’m a frozen yogurt junkie, so I’m sure we’ll indulge in a treat, too.

I’m also doing some exciting events in the days following the book’s release. On August 5th, I’ll be hosting KISSING MAX HOLDEN’s Launch Party at my favorite local indie, One More Page Books, and then I’m heading out on a five city book tour, with stops in Richmond VA, Charlotte NC, Asheville NC, Atlanta GA, and Greenville SC. My tour buddy Christina June and I are so looking forward to meeting lots of fellow YA lovers!

5. When you started writing KISSING MAX HOLDEN, did your brain begin at the first chapter? Or was there a different scene that came about first & you wrote the story from there?

I always draft linearly because I have a hard time writing the in-between parts if I jump around. So, yes, I started at the beginning with KISSING MAX HOLDEN, though I’ve rewritten the story completely from what it was in its original version. All that earliest draft and the book that will soon be published have in common are a few character names, and the longtime-friends-turned-sweethearts trope. The first time I drafted KISSING MAX HOLDEN, the opening chapter was one that still exists in the finished book (the scene where Max drives Jill to school), but the circumstances and the conversation are entirely different now. I like the opening chapter of what the book eventually became so much more – obviously, because there’s kissing!

6. When you're not writing, what occupies your time?

I spend a lot of time adventuring with my family; since we’re currently living in the D.C. area, there’s plenty to see. I also love to bake (much like Jilly!) and I read whenever I get the chance

7. What are you working on next? Can you share anything with us about your 2018 release?

I can! My 2018 release is called THE IMPOSSIBILITY OF US. It’s a young adult romance about Elise, an aspiring photojournalist, and Mati, an Afghan poet. They meet by chance on a California beach and, as their friendship blossoms into more, find themselves struggling to keep their relationship secret from their disapproving families. I think of it as a fairy tale set in the real world, plus it features bits of verse, a really cute dog, and, of course, cookies. It’ll be out next summer. Aside from THE IMPOSSIBILITY OF US, I’m also working on a project I’m still holding close – a potential Book 3. :-)

How great does KISSING MAX HOLDEN sound?! Y'all, I LOVED this book & now here's your chance to fall in love with it, too. Please enter the giveaway below to win a signed copy from the author (open to US only).

Sweet Summertime Reads with Sarah's Summer Reading List + GIVEAWAY



This week's Sweet Summertime Reads is featuring some not-so-typical summery contemp books from one of my favorite people, Sarah from  What Sarah Read. I know that not everyone likes to read the same things I do during the summer -- & that's okay! It's the beauty of reading! We all gravitate toward something different.

So for this week I thought it would be great to reach out to some of my readers that aren't necessarily a fan of the contemporary genre. Sarah has put together a great summer reading list in the variety of sci-fi, fantasy, and action. If this is more your jam, then you're in for a treat!

She is also giving away one of the books from her summer reading list (open to US & International - must be able to ship from Book Depository), so be sure to enter the giveaway at the bottom!

Thanks so much to Ginger for having me on her blog today as part of her epic Sweet Summertime Reads feature. Like Ginger, I'm a BIG fan of summer reading. There's nothing I love more than a lazy summer afternoon, sitting in the sun enjoying an amazing book. The best part about summer reading? You can read virtually anywhere. At the beach or pool, in a tent under the stars, on a road trip or snuggled in bed during a summer storm...the possibilities are endless.


Now, we all know summer is the perfect time to fall in love with a swoony contemporary romance. But if you ask me, it's also the perfect time of year to get sucked into the worlds of fantasy, science fiction and action-adventure! It's such a treat to find that perfect book in that perfect moment and read it from beginning to end in a flurry of pages, swoons and scenes that make your heart race. Lucky for you, I've come up with a list of five perfect summer reads and the perfect summer scene in which to read them. If I'm being honest though, you could read any of these books anywhere and they would still be absolutely amazing!

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

Grab your flashlight, find a good patch of grass to get comfy in and dive into this epic space adventure! The format of this story is like nothing I’ve ever seen before. It’s a combination of interview transcripts, network transmissions, emails, official documents and so much more. It’s fascinating and provided a comprehensive look into an already thrilling and detailed story. Illuminae is unlike any book I’ve read before but still managed to be everything I love in an amazing sci-fi novel! Grab this one today and be amazed!

Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

Get comfy on your beach blanket. because this book is going to take over your life! The gorgeous and vivid imagery of Taylor's words, and the ideas that spring forth are so exquisite. “Strange the Dreamer” is pure magic. From the multitude of characters that I found myself caring so much about, to the rich and complex world that Taylor built as the foundation of her story. Don't blame me when you find yourself still parked on your beach blanket as the sun sets over the water forgetting about the world around you. This book sucks you right in and doesn't let go until the final page.

A Promise of Fire by Amanda Bouchet

Make sure you're next to a cool body of water before you start reading this one. It's filled with all sorts of swoony and seriously steamy moments! A "Promise of Fire" is an epic Adult fantasy that pairs a stubborn and sarcastic heroine and a brooding and smoldering warlord who love to argue. Can you say enemies to lovers? SWOON! But what I love most about this book is the Greek mythology-inspired world that it's set in. The world is detailed, rich and expansive and it's the perfect book to lose yourself in while you soak up that summer sun.

The Gentleman's Guide to Vice Vice & Virtue by Mackenzi Lee

I JUST finished this book the other night and let me tell you...it is AMAZING! Seriously, one of the best books I've read this year! There's so much fun and adventure (and sass) packed into this story and it's the perfect book to bring along on an epic summer road trip with your bestie! Monty and Percy are such precious little cinnamon roles and I want to tuck them in my pocket and keep them safe from harm. Felicity, on the other hand, I want to be her sidekick while she takes over the world. DEFINITELY add this one to your summer reading.

Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

This one is perfect for a stormy summer night! I don’t normally go for the dark and creepy books, and it’s pretty evident from the opening lines that this book is intense! But after a little bit of squirming and reading through my fingers, I discovered that I actually LOVED it! It's an intriguing, dramatic and tense novel that’s inspired by real life mystery and I loved the liberties she takes with the storyline. Most notably, the swoon! Yup, swoon in a story based on Jack the Ripper. I’m not going to say anymore though, you just have to read it for yourself to find out.



---


Who's ready to read one of these action-packed, swoon-worthy, intensely intriguing stories?! If so, enter the giveaway below! One winner will be selected to choose from the five books mentioned above. This is open to US & International (must be able to ship from Book Depository). Good luck!

Such a Ginger Read: Adult Romance Edition + GIVEAWAY



Where I read a book and then label it as "Such a Ginger Read" because, well, it is such a Ginger read. To see my first edition post of this new feature, please click here.


If someone were to ask what this teacher did on her summer break, my answer would be: I READ A LOT OF BOOKS!! I've been going through some review books, as well as some new releases. As always, heavy on the romance! I decided to feature three of my latest romance reads on the blog because even though they're all very different, each one is definitely deemed as Such a Ginger Read! + I'm giving away an ebook copy of one of these reads, so be sure to enter at the bottom!

Mister Romance by Leisa Rayven
About the book: As his alter-ego Mister Romance, Max is a drop-dead gorgeous escort who makes romantic fantasies come to life. No sex, just swoon-worthy dates to die for, and the cream of New York's socialites can't get enough. Whether they want a dominating billionaire, bad boy with a heart of gold, hot geek, sexy biker, or best friend who loves them from afar, Max can make it all happen, but he's careful to keep his real identity a secret.

Enter investigative journalist Eden Tate. Having caught wind of the urban legend of Mister Romance from a lovestruck client, Eden is determined to publish a scathing expose on Max and his ability to swindle lonely society women out of their fortunes.

Desperate to protect his anonymity and his clients, Max challenges Eden to give him three dates. If she doesn't fall in love with him, she can run her story with his blessing. If she succumbs to his charms, the story dies.

Cynical Eden has no doubt she can resist his fake romance personas, but when the real Max admits he’s falling for her, she has to decide if the professional liar is telling the truth, or if the passionate man with the mysterious past is just one more character designed to con her out of her career-making story. [goodreads]
This story was a whole lot of fun to read! Eden is very cynical when it comes to true romance, so when she takes on the job to investigate the city's most recommended escort, she is not prepared for the guy behind the scenes. I don't want to give too much away because that was part of the fun; discovering Max's identity. The banter between these two characters was steamy and irresistible. If you're looking for an adult romance that thinks a bit out of the box, then I definitely recommend this one. MISTER ROMANCE grabbed my attention and had me so entertained throughout, that is why I feel it is Such a Ginger Read.

---

Dear Aaron by Mariana Zapata
About the book: Ruby Santos knew exactly what she was getting herself into when she signed up to write a soldier overseas.

The guidelines were simple: one letter or email a week for the length of his or her deployment. Care packages were optional.

Been there, done that. She thought she knew what to expect.
What she didn’t count on was falling in love with the guy. [goodreads]


Do you like a little more emotion with your romance? Then I highly recommend this Mariana Zapata novel. She is the queen of slow burn and I have yet to find an adult contemporary romance writer who does it better. Ruby is writing letters to soldiers overseas because she knows how emotionally draining it can be for them. When she gets connected with Aaron, the most unexpected happens, and so begins a beautiful friendship. I really appreciated the slow build of their relationship simply through letters, then through chats on the Internet. It puts the reader inside their minds and made their connection that much more real. This is highly recommended if you're a fan of strangers to friends to lovers romance tropes. But don't worry, it's not all written in letter format. Eventually these two do meet and it is HOT. So naturally that is why I refer to it as Such a Ginger Read.

---

Until the Sun Sets by Tara Wyatt
About the book: Two best friends at a destination wedding in Mexico are forced into a fake relationship; but when one kiss turns into a week-long fling, could this change everything?

Dean Grayson doesn't do commitment. So when his cousin asks Dean to bring a date to his wedding in Mexico, he asks his best friend, Carly Jensen, to come with him. After a recent break up, Carly’s feeling like she’ll never find love, so a week in Mexico with her best friend-slash-boss is the perfect way to take her mind off things.

As fate would have it, Carly’s ex is also a guest at the wedding…with his new girlfriend. To protect her pride, Carly and Dean decide to fake a relationship for the week. But between the sand, surf, and sharing a bed, these friends turned lovers realize they’re meant for something more.

Until the Sun Sets combines everything summer into a sweet, sexy novella that’s the perfect beach read! [goodreads]
Oh this book is everything I love in a short, sweet, and sultry summer romance! Take two best friends who are thrust into a fake relationship (their doing, of course) set in the tropical beaches of Mexico. I loved everything about the set up of this story, but it was the characters that truly won me over. For being a novella, I felt instantly connected to both Carly and Dean. Their pretend relationship was fun to witness as it began to blur lines, and both sides started to notice the other in a different light. Dudes in swim trunks, playing beach volleyball, and hot summer nights skinny dipping in the ocean were just a few moments that raised the heat factor in this romance. I didn't realize how much I enjoy get away stories like this! Give me beach + romance + fun fake relationships and you've got yourself Such a Ginger Read!

---

Did any of these books catch your eye? If so, here's your chance to win one! I'm giving away an ebook of your choice (Mister Romance, Dear Aaron, or Until the Sun Sets). This giveaway is open to those who have access to Amazon kindle (US). Good luck!
