Hey Girl! Check out these new releases from August 16th-22nd.
It’s Not Love, It’s Business (Young In Love Book 2) by Elle Wright
How one night turned into fifteen and counting is beyond me. I never imagined ending up here. I’m a Marriage Broker, not a matchmaker… Especially for myself! It was always a ruse. Perception, not reality. For a purpose, not for always. Business, not romance.
Want to know my plan? A simple assist, a favor.
Want to know my potential downfall? Him. His sincere eyes, his intoxicating smile, his scintillating personality. Oh, and our out-of-control chemistry.
Formal galas, public dinner dates… that’s what this was supposed to be. Lazy mornings, Netflix and chill, impromptu road trips… that wasn’t our thing. Until it was.
Spoiler alert: I can’t resist him, so I won’t. Everything is bad but he’s so good. Ironic, huh? I thought so, too. Just like I thought this arrangement was only temporary. Except… what if it’s everlasting love?
IT’S NOT LOVE, IT’S BUSINESS is book two in the Young In Love Series, featuring the very large, very fun Young Family. If you love romance with layered characters and laugh out loud moments, snag your copy. This novel contains sex, profanity, and sensitive subjects that some may find triggering.
