HOW TO LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR by Sophie Sullivan
ISBN 9781250624185 | on sale 1/18/22
Interior Design School? Check. Cute little house to fix up? Also check. Grumpy sexy neighbor who is going to get in the way of all of your plans? Check. Unfortunately. Grace Travis definitely has it all figured out. Sorta. Kinda. Okay, not really. But in between finishing interior design school and working approximately nine million odd jobs, she’ll get her degree. She’ll have her dream job. And most importantly, she’ll be able to have a place to belong, something her distant, manipulative mother could never make for her. When an opportunity to fix up—and live in—a sweet little house on the beach as her final design project comes along, Grace is all in. Until her biggest roadblock moves in next door.
Noah Jansen knows how to make a deal. A real estate developer with a knack for betting big and striking rich, he’s not one to let a good opportunity slip away. So when a beachside house with great bones is ripe for a remodel and flip, Noah doesn’t hesitate. Except in order to spruce it up properly, he’ll need to take over the house next door, too. The house with the willful and combative and way-too-intriguing woman who lives next door.
With the rules for being neighborly going out the window, Grace and Noah are in an all-out feud. But sometimes your nemesis can turn out to be something more, and show you where your home has been all along.
BAD LUCK BRIDESMAID by Alison Rose Greenberg
ISBN 9781250791597 | on sale 1/11/22
This is not a rom com. You’ve been warned.
It’s official: Zoey Marks is the cursed bridesmaid that no engagement can survive. Ten years, three empire waist dresses, and ZERO brides have walked down the aisle. After strike three, Zoey is left wondering if her own ambivalence towards marriage has rubbed off on those she loves. And when her building distrust of matrimony culminates in turning down a proposal from her perfect All-American boyfriend, Rylan Harper III, she and Rylan are both left heartbroken, leaving Zoey to wonder: what is it exactly about tying the knot that makes her want to run in the opposite direction?
Enter Hannah Green: Zoey’s best friend, who announces that she’s marrying a guy she just met. At a castle. In gorgeous, romantic Ireland, where Rylan will be in attendance, and Zoey will be a bridesmaid. It’ll be fine. Okay, the woman definition of fine (NOT FINE).
Determined to turn her luck around, Zoey accepts her role and vows to get Hannah down the aisle—all the while praying her best friend’s wedded bliss will allow her to embrace marriage and get Rylan back. But as the weekend goes on, Zoey is plagued with more questions than answers. Can you be a free spirit, yet still want a certain future? Can you have love and be loved on your terms? And how DO you wrangle a bossy falcon into doing your bidding?
LAST RESORT by Andrew Lipstein
ISBN 9780374602703 | on sale 1/18/22
Caleb Horowitz is twenty-seven, and his wildest dreams are about to come true. His manuscript has caught the attention of the literary agent, who offers him fame, fortune, and a taste of the literary life. He can’t wait for his book to be shopped around to every editor in New York, except one: Avi Dietsch, a college rival and the novel’s “inspiration.” When Avi gets his hands on it, he sees nothing but theft—and opportunity. Caleb is forced to make a Faustian bargain, one that tests his theories of success, ambition, and the limits of art.
Andrew Lipstein’s LAST RESORT is the razor-edged account of a young man’s headlong journey into authenticity. As Caleb fights to right his mistakes and reclaim his name, he must burn every bridge, confront his own desire, and finally see his work from the perspective of those locked inside.
THE GOLDEN COUPLE by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen
ISBN 9781250273208 | on sale 3/8/21
If Avery Chambers can’t fix you in 10 sessions, she won’t take you on as a client. Her successes are phenomenal—she helps people overcome everything from domineering parents to assault—and almost absorb the emptiness she sometimes feels since her husband’s death.
Marissa and Mathew Bishop seem like the golden couple—until Marissa cheats. She wants to repair things, both because she loves her husband and for the sake of their 8-year-old son. After a friend forwards an article about Avery, Marissa takes a chance on this maverick therapist, who lost her license due to controversial methods.
When the Bishops glide through Avery’s door and Marissa reveals her infidelity, all three are set on a collision course. Because the biggest secrets in the room are still hidden, and it’s no longer simply a marriage that’s in danger.
