Hot Cover Monday : Part-Time Lover by Lauren Blakely

Hot Cover is a meme we have done every Monday for the last two years. We are changing things up as we will now be featuring the hottest cover from the week’s upcoming releases! This week … I’ll say this about Christian — he made one hell of a first impression. When I first saw the strapping man, he was doing handstands naked on a dock along the canal.

But given the way my heart had been trampled, I wanted only a simple deal — No strings. No expectations. Our arrangement worked well enough… Keep Reading »
