The Work Wife: A Romantic Comedy by CJ Martin
We’ve all been there before: wanting something–or someone–we can’t have. Whether it’s a decadent slice of chocolate cake that will blow a diet, the too expensive yet oh-so-cute shoes that cost more than an entire paycheck, or the drool-worthy barista who whips up this morning’s macchiato…the point is, we can relate.
Say You’ll Stay by Corinne Michaels
I moved on. Marriage. Kids. White picket fence. Everything I ever wanted, but my husband betrayed me and I was left once again. Alone, penniless, and with two boys, I had no choice but to return to Tennessee. He wasn’t supposed to be there. I should’ve been safe. However, fate has a way of stepping in.

We Shouldn’t by Vi Keeland
Bennett Fox walked into my life on one hell of a crappy Monday morning.

While I lugged my belongings up to my new office, a meter maid wrote me a parking summons.
Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman
