Hey Girl! Check out these new releases from January 18th-24th.
The Ways of Love: (Four Letter Word, #4) by Bella Jay
All Adalyn Russell ever wanted was a happily ever after. And at one point in time, she would do whatever it took to get that by any means necessary. Until whatever it took turned into a nightmare that almost took her life. She realized what she thought she wanted was toxic, and what she did want was staring her right in the face.
Waze Whitmoore always believed that when the right woman came along, he would know. And he was right because from the moment he met Adalyn, he knew that eventually she would be his. And she was.
With Waze, Adalyn had found her Prince Charming.
But it’s when you have everything you think you could have ever wanted, that your past comes back and threatens to ruin everything.
Each book in the Four Letter Word Series is a standalone but the books are meant to be read in order as the first three books take place during the same time unless you don’t mind mini spoilers from the other books. Book four, The Ways of Love, takes place a year after the first three.
TWOL can stand fully on its on but, it is still recommended to read book two, A Toxic Kind of Love, prior as the main characters of this book first appeared there.
