Sexy Dare is the first book in Carly Phillips's new Sexy series and is a spin-off of her highly popular Dare to Love and NY Dares series. This can be read independently of those two previous series, although they're personal favorites of mine and if you're really interested in learning all about the family history of the Dares, you may want to check the books out since the Dare to Love series features the two families that "patriarch"--I use that term really loosely--Robert Dare had and the NY Dares features the cousins, and New York is where Phillips's Sexy series is set.

The Sexy series starter features Jason Dare, co-owner of the TEN29 nightclub and perpetually single--and he has no plans of changing that status ever. When he stops to help sweet shop owner and candy maker Faith Lancaster, he's immediately taken by the beautiful woman's sweet curves and even sweet…

Holidate (Dating #3) by Monica Murphy Date Released: October 15, 2019
About Holidate Candice Gaines loves Christmas. Not only does she bask in the twinkling lights, sing Christmas carols and go crazy with the decorations, she’s also in the giving spirit, donating much of her time and wealth to various charities in the local area.

Charlie Sullivan despises Christmas. Though it keeps his family afloat, considering they own Sullivan Family Christmas Tree Farm, the main provider for Christmas trees on the Monterey peninsula. He’d much rather work among the trees versus have to deal with people.

But Charlie’s parents are taking on more philanthropic projects—and as their oldest child, they want him to be their official public representative. He just has to play nice and convince everyone he’s not a total holiday hater.

When Charlie’s mom asks Candice to accompany him to a variety of holiday parties and events, she reluctantly agrees. She thinks Charlie is a big ol’ Grinch, but is determined to…

Some people love holiday movies; I, however, have a thing for holiday reads. Where I'm from, the Christmas season begins when the -ber months roll in, so that's basically the first of September! Think Christmas carols in the malls and on the radio, countdowns galore, jotting down the Christmas gift shopping list (and scouting for gifts!), and so on. And while I've seen posts of friends getting all excited over this year's lineup of holiday television movies from Hallmark, I'm more into checking out who among my favorite authors have a holiday book set for release or just any holiday read in general that catches my fancy. First this year is Monica Murphy's Holidate, which also happens to be the third book in her Dating rom-com series, and it truly does have the holiday romance spirit!

Candice Gaines loves Christmas; Charlie Sullivan does...not. She's all about getting int…

Once Upon a Holiday by Claudia Burgoa Release Date: November 7, 2019 Cover Design: By Hang Le

About Once Upon a Holiday This holiday season, there’s more than gingerbread in the oven.
I was always a type-A kind of girl— and that’s exactly what got me into trouble with Sterling Ahren.
Having a baby before thirty didn’t work out, so I took some time off to sort out my life. Sterling’s my new landlord… and he doesn’t plan anything. He’s a billionaire playboy who can’t stand the holidays. A recluse of the worst kind. Sterling makes Scrooge look like a generous soul … except Ebenezer was never this sexy.
He doesn’t want a family— until the night we have a spontaneous one-night stand, and we run out of condoms. I can’t have a baby with a disorganized, free spirit like him. Between my overprotective brothers and his crazy fans, I already know this isn’t going to work out. Except Sterling isn’t willing to let me go. He wants me home for the holidays … and this is my last chance to make a Christmas…

Crossing the Line (Hot Jocks #4) by Kendall Ryan Release Date: January 2020

About Crossing the Line Hello, rock? 
Meet hard place.

Recuperating from a pulled groin muscle isn’t exactly how I planned to spend my much-needed summer vacation.

But I’ll admit, being nursed back to health by my gorgeous friend Bailey, who’s just graduated from medical school, doesn’t exactly sound like a hardship.

We spend a week together at my family’s beach house, a week of swimming and barbecues, a week of entertaining my little cousins and sleeping right across the hall from each other. A week of watching Bailey grow closer with my mom and sisters, and my wacky but lovable grandma. A week of enjoying Bailey tending to me—which is saying something, because it involves a lot of shoving ice packs into my underwear and taping up sore muscles.

She’s funny and kind, and after just being myself for the first time in a long time, my walls come tumbling down. But when Bailey says she’s not looking for a relationship, …
