In Love, I Trust: Rose Hill Series by Brookelyn Mosley
Welcome to Rose Hill.
Have you ever experienced something so amazing that you convinced yourself it was too good to be true?
Serenity Payne continues to psych herself out with love. She’s consistently dress-rehearsed disappointment with her heart since she was thirteen. For years, Serenity has lived vicariously through other people’s love lives, and doing so has made her a pessimist.
But that outcome changes when she meets Trevon “Trey” Everest online.
Trey knows what he wants from love and is confident he’s ready to have and maintain the best of it with someone special. He’s traveled the world, has a fulfilling career, and has supportive friends and family. Now, he desires a genuine love of a lifetime that’s enduring and worth the effort of building something authentic… and he’s sure he’s found it in Serenity.
But, there’s a problem.
Serenity’s pessimism challenges Trey’s optimism in the worst way, and the solution to their problem will require Serenity to do the one thing she refuses to do with men… release control and trust.

Fumbled Love: A Frenemies College Football Romance (Genius in Love) by Marina Hill
I’m content with my life as a wallflower; it helps me focus on academics, which will then help my future as a diplomat. I average an A-minus in every college class (although I’m loath to include the minus part) except for one: math. No matter how hard I try, math doesn’t click. When I bite the bullet and get a tutor, I don’t expect to see the star quarterback with cracked-open books waiting for me.
Zafir Jones is the whole package: compassionate, kind, and has a charming smile. Except there’s one problem: I hate—no, severely dislike (I’m working on being softer)—jocks. They’re pompous, egotistical, and full of toxic masculinity. But Zafir is anything but toxic. Despite his arrogance, he’s smart, always trying to make me blush, and combats my every attempt to write him off as a self-absorbed athlete.
With every painted pumpkin, every cuddle with a fluffy corgi, and every silly dance, Zafir breaks down my walls and shows me there’s more to life than staying on the sidelines.

When love is brewing, it could be destiny… or disaster.
Coffee is life. At least, it is for Joanne. As the owner of a small chain of popular coffee shops, she has taken the town of Sweetgum by storm with her rich, earthy brews and savvy business sense. So, when she decides to expand her empire into the neighboring town of Peachwood, Joanne is confident that she has things all under control.
Secure a location? Check.
Start renovations? Check.
Hire an infuriatingly sexy and obstinate manager? Double-check.
Xavier may have dazzled all the patrons with his intense charm and handsome smile, but he can’t seem to remember one simple detail–she’s supposed to be the one in charge.
He defies her at every turn, changing things up and driving her insane. She really should fire him. Trouble is… all his crazy ideas have made business better than ever. But Joanne knows how to run a coffee shop; she doesn’t need him at all.

It has absolutely nothing to do with the beautiful shop owner. Or how she’s driven, organized, easy to provoke, and the most distracting creature he’s ever met.
If he could just get Joanne to loosen up and listen, he knows they could grow the shop–and their relationship–into something special.
But are they too different for this to work? Or can finally admitting their feelings be the beginning of the happiness they both deserve?
If you like sweet, small-town romances with swoony moments and caffeinated characters, you’ll love In Charge.
