A BRUSH WITH THE LAW by Janette Rallison
Bethany has endured a streak of depressing Valentine’s Days. And this one is turning out no different. Her friend set her up on a blind date—and Bethany can only hope that James will be a decent guy. But it seems the fated day has other plans, and Bethany finds herself in the middle of a comedy of errors that make a blind date with a stranger the least of her problems.

EVERY OCCASION by Heather B. Moore
When Maurie moves back to her hometown to open up her dream shop, she calls a local construction crew for help. Former teenage crush Grant shows up on her front porch, answering the call for the construction job, and Maurie’s memories of her troubled childhood return with full force. When she discovers Grant has a troubled past of his own, Maurie realizes that she might have misjudged him all along.

HOLD YOUR BREATH by Jenny Proctor
As Kayla trains for the Olympic swimming trials, she vows to never let another boyfriend get in her way. When she finds out her younger sister’s new high school swim coach is Nate—the guy Kayla had a huge crush on when they were in school together—Kayla realizes that her resolve is weakening. But Kayla isn’t willing to risk giving up her Olympic dream for anyone, not even charming Nate.

When Sam’s long-time boyfriend, Steve, texts that he has something important to ask her on Valentine’s Day, she’s sure that he’s going to propose. Determined to look great for the big day, she hits the all-night laundromat to wash her favorite outfit. When her clothes are chugging away in a machine, Steve calls and pops a question—not one she ever would have expected. Reeling with shock, she’s left facing the holiday alone, unless you count the other person at laundromat, a guy leaning against his own washer, intent on his phone.

DEAL BREAKERS by Heather Tullis
The last place Colette wants to be stranded is the snowed-in Denver airport, especially when her sister is enduring chemo treatments and needs Colette’s help back home. When Colette runs into another stranded passenger—none other than former college boyfriend Drew—she can’t believe how much he’s changed . . . and hasn’t changed. Drew is still the same amazing guy that Colette was foolish enough to blow off for someone else. By the time she’d realized her mistake all those years ago, Drew’s heart had been too broken to give her a second chance. Now Colette can only hope that she can work her way back into his heart.

HEY, HELEN! by Sarah M. Eden
On the surface, Helen seems to have her life figured out. Her advice column, Hey, Helen!, is gaining more readers every week. She regularly hangs out with the guy next door, laughing and chatting over pizza and work. But when her feelings for her handsome neighbor begin tiptoeing toward something more than friendship, Helen can’t help hoping Neil might feel the same way. Between her own uncertainties, his friend-zone treatment of her, and a pair of loudly interfering parents, Hey, Helen! could use a little advice in love.

About Heather Tullis

About Janette Rallison

Janette Rallison

Janette Rallison/CJ Hill writes books because writing is much more fun than cleaning bathrooms. Her avoidance of housework has led her to writing 24 novels that have sold over 1,000,000 print copies and have been on many reading and state lists. Her books are fantasy, sci-fi, and romantic comedy because hey, there is enough angst in real life, but there’s a drastic shortage of humor, romance and hot guys who fight dragons. She lives in Arizona with her husband, kids, and enough cats to classify her as eccentric.

About Jenny Proctor

She hikes to spend time with her family, runs because her love for food requires it, and writes because it keeps her calm in an otherwise crazy world. She believes that life in the south has a certain flair to it—and works to capture that flair in her novels.

About Sarah M. Eden

Sarah M. Eden

  1. A BRUSH WITH THE LAW by Janette Rallison
    So. Funny. This is the one that made me giggle and think, “Girl, what are you thinking?!” Bethany has a great sense of humor to deal with the mishaps that keep her in the sights of a local policeman.

    EVERY OCCASION by Heather B. Moore
    The chemistry is hot in this one! Maurie has a good perspective on life and her dysfunctional childhood, but that doesn’t make returning home less painful. Grant was the one light in her youth but he has a confession of his own to make… great tension and backstories to make the characters vulnerable with each other.

    HOLD YOUR BREATH by Jenny Proctor
    I haven’t read anything by Jenny Proctor before but this definitely won’t be the last! I loved the determination of Kayla to stick to her plan of no dating while training for the Olympics, and Nate’s equal resolve to not let her get away. They had fantastic chemistry and charming banter.

    I missed the college roommate experience so this was a fun setting for me to read. Poor Sam gets blindsided but helping with an impromptu YouTube challenge gets her mind off the devastation. I felt like the story ended abruptly and I would have liked more of a wrap-up.

    DEAL BREAKERS by Heather Tullis
    I’ve always thought it would be fun to be stranded in an airport… even though I know that’s crazy! This author’s writing style included more telling than showing, which didn’t help me connect with characters’ emotions. A creative plot though!

    HEY, HELEN! by Sarah M. Eden
    One of my favorites of the collection, the secret love angle was so romantic and it was perfectly balanced with humor from Helen’s column and compassion as she helps Neil take a difficult stand with some family issues. A strong story to end the anthology with, I finished with a big sigh of satisfaction 🙂

    This collection has a nice variety of stories.

    A BRUSH WITH THE LAW by Janette Rallison was pretty funny in an over the top, rom com kind of way. Made the story quite enjoyable.

    EVERY OCCASION by Heather B. Moore. I’m always disappointed when I read a collection only to find that I’ve already read one of the stories in another book. That was the case with this one. I read it as Let’s Begin Again. The story is still a good story though. Second chance romance.

    HOLD YOUR BREATH by Jenny Proctor. I liked Nate quite a bit. Seems like kind of a dreamy swim coach. Second chance romance.

    THE ULTIMATE BACHELOR CHALLENGE by Annette Lyon. This one was kind of fun and different. More of an insta-love type story. I liked the characters.

    DEAL BREAKERS by Heather Tullis is a second chance romance. For most of the story I felt like Colette looked kind of bad but by the end, the story showed how their relationship went off from both sides and not just how she blew it. They were both very nice people though as they took a mom and her kids under their wing to make it easier for them.

    HEY, HELEN! by Sarah M. Eden was a rather fun friends to love story. I liked how her career of her writing a column moved the story along into romance and how they worked together to have them both succeed in their endeavors.

    No sex, language or violence
