Wishing That I Was Yours (A Lennox in Love Book 3) by Tina Martin
~A Standalone Novella~
She always liked him but pushed those feelings aside. Now, they’ve reemerged with a force she can hardly control…
Jessalyn Lennox has hidden a crush with Spencer Wakefield for nearly a decade. He was, and still is, the man of her dreams but he was unavailable. Unavailable to her, that is. He’s older. One of her brothers’ best friends. He was like family. No, he was family and she loved him like a brother.
When Spencer becomes aware of Jessalyn’s feelings for him, he knows the best course of action is to talk some sense into her. A relationship between the two of them wouldn’t work due to the family dynamic. His refusal to even try leaves them both at a loss.
Leaving them both longing.
But there’s nothing like a little jealousy that kicks a man in the butt and makes him realize that if you don’t want a woman, you better believe someone else does.

Glitz. Glamour. Designer Labels.
Camryn Elsbury’s life has consisted of these things for as long as she can remember.
Love doesn’t matter, at least that’s what her mom says. From an early age Cam was taught that love does not exist and that a man is defined by the size of his bank account.
When a twist of fate thrusts two lost souls into an unlikely friendship, the lessons they teach each other can’t be found in a textbook.

Affair of the Heart by Janice Sims
Veterinarian Cara Lynn Garrett returns to her Kentucky hometown to get away from her hectic lifestyle and to enjoy some downtime. The last thing she expected was to be pursued by two very different, yet breathtakingly handsome men. Cara has to make a choice between the two and the only way is to let her heart drive the decision.
The Mothers: A Novel by Brit Bennett
A dazzling debut novel from an exciting new voice, The Mothers is a surprising story about young love, a big secret in a small community—and the things that ultimately haunt us most.
Set within a contemporary black community in Southern California, Brit Bennett’s mesmerizing first novel is an emotionally perceptive story about community, love, and ambition. It begins with a secret.
“All good secrets have a taste before you tell them, and if we’d taken a moment to swish this one around our mouths, we might have noticed the sourness of an unripe secret, plucked too soon, stolen and passed around before its season.”
It is the last season of high school life for Nadia Turner, a rebellious, grief-stricken, seventeen-year-old beauty. Mourning her own mother’s recent suicide, she takes up with the local pastor’s son. Luke Sheppard is twenty-one, a former football star whose injury has reduced him to waiting tables at a diner. They are young; it’s not serious. But the pregnancy that results from this teen romance—and the subsequent cover-up—will have an impact that goes far beyond their youth. As Nadia hides her secret from everyone, including Aubrey, her God-fearing best friend, the years move quickly. Soon, Nadia, Luke, and Aubrey are full-fledged adults and still living in debt to the choices they made that one seaside summer, caught in a love triangle they must carefully maneuver, and dogged by the constant, nagging question: What if they had chosen differently? The possibilities of the road not taken are a relentless haunt.
In entrancing, lyrical prose, The Mothers asks whether a “what if” can be more powerful than an experience itself. If, as time passes, we must always live in servitude to the decisions of our younger selves, to the communities that have parented us, and to the decisions we make that shape our lives forever.
