You Make Me Feel by Monica Walters

A socialite and a cautious introvert try to make a love connection, but their differences might be more than they can overcome.

Kinisha Jordan has always been a socialite, treating society like her personal revolving door. She doesn’t dwell on people that have no place in her life. She simply moves on, trying her best not to let it affect her. However, seeing her friends find happiness and love is starting to weigh on her. Lonely nights are beginning to take a toll on her, and she finds herself in an undesirable predicament. Things spiral out of control, and she starts to regret her past choices, wondering if she has been too free with her time. 

Oliver Andrews has played it safe in life, refusing to take chances in any aspect of it. He learned to watch the experiences of others before deciding to live carelessly. He waits patiently for the attention of one woman. Playing the field has never been a part of who he is, and he refuses to reduce his standards simply because he’s lonely. When a situation arises, despite his morals, he decides to step in and save the day. 

Kinisha needs help, and it ends up coming from the least likely source. Oliver has offered her a way out, but she doesn’t know if she can agree to his terms. While the attraction is there, the statutes put in place might be too much for her to abide by. Will Oliver ease the stipulations he’s put in place to obtain Kinisha’s heart, or will Kinisha change who she is to satisfy Oliver’s demands?

So loyal, she devotes herself to Dante indefinitely, hoping this will help him appreciate what he has—his life and his wife. 

While seemingly having it all, their perfect marriage isn’t enough to keep Dante from digging up the past in hopes of recovering his memory. It isn’t long before he begins questioning Sade’s behavior and intentions. Once secrets start to unravel, Dante is left more confused than the day following the accident.

Accountant Colin Anderson is working himself into an early grave.

Shay Davis is finally living her dream of owning a yoga studio.

Sure, they went to high school together—but that’s where their similarities end. He’s Mr. Corporate, hustling late into the night so his firm can go public, while she flows through sun salutations and half-moon poses at her own pace.

So when a health scare pushes Colin to make a few life changes, he knows where to turn. If he’s going to get right with his career, he’ll need the right woman—and to get the right woman, he has to prioritize his health. Who better than Shay to help whip his butt into shape so he can win back his high school girlfriend?

The catch is, she only has ninety days to do it.

Soon, though, their sessions are heating up the studio. But as Colin gets closer to achieving his goal, he and Shay both move further away from what they thought they wanted. Before they know it, they’ll have to step out of their comfort zones and rethink their own versions of “right”…before their time is up.


Joaquim (Hidden Desires Book 2) by A.H. Cunningham

Headlining BlackMag Con as the fantasy author duo Z.J. Grousant should have been the ultimate dream for Zacarias Joaquim and his boyfriend, Jonathon. If only headliner, ex-friend, and fellow indie romance fantasy author Nevaeh Nbada still talked to them. And if only Jonathon wouldn’t find a million ways to remind her of the reasons why she walked away. Will the magic of the convention help mend the hurts of the past?

This series is a spinoff of Wicked Moves. The series can be read on its own, however, it’s enhanced by reading A Turn in the Air first.

Each book in the Hidden Desires series is interconnected and I highly recommend you read the series in order.
