Hey Girl! Check out these new releases from July 18th-24th.
Changing Seasons by Chelsea Maria
I’ve always imagined love to resemble coloring outside of the lines. Our kismet fate painted in hues of violets and blues. Oranges and reds spearing the flames of heaven’s divine grace as it tied our souls. An obscure canvas covered by the colors we made. Dismissing traditional rules of falling in love by choosing a different beat of me and my lover’s nirvana-laced drum.
However, where there is love, there is pain.
Heartbreak snatched me out of my love cocoon. Chewing me up and spitting me out into a cycle of delirium. Still inhaling and exhaling the breath of my ex-lover. The cruelty of it left more scars than the claws of our enemies tiring themselves out to break what could never be unyoked.
Tasting the bitterness of heartbreak almost ruined me. He almost ruined me and I wanted revenge in the sweetest way possible. This was my moment to get the seven-year-long closure I’ve been wanting. The freedom to release myself from him. For him to release the hold he’s had on me – To get my heart back.
Rude Boss 2 (DePaul & Company) by Tina Martin
I wanted to keep Quintessa close to me because she’s special. She’s a girl from my past that grew up into an amazing, beautiful brilliant woman. I want to make her mine, but she doesn’t trust me fully because she doesn’t know who I am.
Therefore, the time has come to reveal my true identity before she finds out on her own, but things don’t always go as planned, does it? I know that firsthand. If life went by a plan, Quintessa would’ve been mine years ago. We would’ve been together. We would’ve been living our happily ever after.
But we’re not. We’re lagging behind. Playing catchup. Reminiscing…
I can’t risk losing her again after putting forth all this effort to ensure we found each other again. But who’s to say that won’t happen anyway, especially when I struggle with my own identity. When I fear that the person I’ve become is not a man she could love.
This is the conclusion to the DePaul & Company Series!

On the architectural team revitalizing the neighborhood, hometown girl Aiko Holt is all about progress. Then she sees Summer again. Some things never change.

Davi settled into the life of a pampered princess early—never going against her father’s wishes. She is ready for something different, and she finds it when she literally collides with the tall, peanut butter mystery that is Joseph Carver on her first day at Trudale University.
Joseph is a rude, good-smelling genius who wreaks havoc in Davi’s thoughts from the first moment she sees him. Joseph keeps to himself and handles his business. He doesn’t concern himself with love because he doesn’t believe it’s for him—he doesn’t believe he’s the kind of dude good things happen to. Joseph comes from darkness and resides there, until he gets a dose of Davi, who brightens up his entire world. As a man who doesn’t do relationships, Joseph is shook by the fact that the hazel-eyed, blonde-haired beauty has found a way into his every thought. Clearly, she was going to be trouble.
Will Davi defy her father to give her mystery man a chance? Will Joseph open his heart to the love that Davi desperately wants to pour into him? Or will the couple fall victim to their strongholds and miss out on a love that could save them both?
