2. Curvy by Alexa Riley: “The first time Flynn Long sees her, she’s lying on a bed in lingerie. The picture is soft, just like her curves, and instantly he’s obsessed. Cali Carr is at the end of her full-figure modeling career when she’s hired for a new campaign.”

5. Wherever It Leads by Adirana Locke: “Brynne Calloway knows that anything that seems too good to be true usually is. Fenton Abbott and his cashmere voice, Adonis body, and a magnetism like no other clearly falls into that category. But what’s life without a little risk?”

His hatred toward Sofia and thirst for fresh blood lead to a brutal war igniting between father and son.”

10. Slip of the Tongue by Jessica Hawkins: “Sadie Hunt isn’t perfect–but her husband is. Nathan Hunt has her coffee waiting every morning. He holds her hand until the last second.
