Wyatt Armstrong never imagined that instead of celebrating his college graduation, he and his twin sister would be dealing with the death of their parents.  Then again, Wyatt had never been one to think past tomorrow. He heads to their summer home in Harborside, Massachusetts, with his best friend Cassidy Lowell in tow, to deal with his parents’ death and to try to figure out his next step.

Six foot two, infuriatingly handsome, and flirtatious, Wyatt Armstrong has always been there for Cassidy, helping her pass her classes and fend off unwanted advances, while driving her insane with his one-night stands—but that’s what best friends are for, isn’t it? Having each other’s backs. There was never any doubt that she would accompany him to his family’s summer home—but she never expected to begin seeing Wyatt as more than a friend. Or has she been ignoring her feelings all along?

It’s impossible to ignore the sizzling heat between them as Wyatt and Cassidy get even closer, but Cassidy knows Wyatt’s past, and she has a real job to begin in the fall. Wyatt may be a sure thing for the summer, but Cassidy needs more. For the first time in his life, Wyatt is forced to look toward the future if he doesn’t want to lose the one woman who’s shared his past and owns his heart.

Lauren’s world is a blurry mess of colors but she has no tolerance for pity. She has everything she wants: her PhD, a thriving counseling practice and her independence. When she meets her new neighbor, the man’s warm Texas accent and clean male scent weaken her knees.

Gabe carries the weight of the world on his shoulders. He has reasons for indulging only in short-term flings, but the feisty, green-eyed neighbor makes him want to forget every one. When a woman from Gabe’s past is murdered, the reasons he should have stayed away become painfully clear, threatening innocent lives—especially Lauren’s.

Do you struggle with what to give away at your author contests? Don't want to give too many of your books away? This happens with many authors and in fact, experts say you shouldn't give away too many copies of your books because this can cause readers to just wait until you're giving away a book again rather than buying. Instead of giving away books, or even a gift card to Amazon or another favorite bookstore, consider giving away items like, desktop wallpapers (you can create these with your book covers easily in a photo editing program, or free 3D progams such as Daz Studio), puzzles (there are websites that will allow you to create puzzles online free such as Discovery's Free Puzzle Maker that allows you to make word search puzzles using your own words, or Jigsaw Planet which allows you to create jigsaw puzzles you can do online), adult coloring pages (you can create coloring pages using online photo editors such as Pixlr that allow you to take photos and other images and turn them into coloring pages, just make sure your images are your own, or in the public domain), and gift bags of swag and other goodies.

Coffee Time Recommended Reads

CTRR Award

Our Coffee Crew works hard every day reading and writing those great reviews because we love it. Out of all the books that the entire staff reads, occassionally one raises to the top of our Staffer's mind. A special book that is just so wonderful, we feel it deserves an extra acknowledgement. So once a month, our Coffee Crew awards a book with the CTRR Award and share it with you.

Not every member of our Coffee Crew will have a 'special' book they recommend, so when one of the books is selected, you know it is special! Stop by our blog to see which books were nominated and won this month...or in the past!

Congratulations to this month's winners:
