I buy books. A lot. Some (okay A LOT) are impulse purchases and some are from my long to-buy list or sales. (I get bonus points if it’s a sale on to-buy books!) But then there are the special books, the books from my auto-buy authors that I count down to like my almost-five year-old counts down to her birthday.
This week, I’m counting down to next week’s release from two of my auto-buy authors. Two! Heidi and Marie collaborated on this book, and I can’t wait. Like peanut butter and chocolate, the combo of both can only mean good things. (If you haven’t read either yet, I really reccomend starting with Marie’s Promises–it launches a great series of related books. For Cullinan, a great start is her Dance with Me.)
From the blurb:
Paul Hannon moved to Tucker Springs for his girlfriend, but she’s left him with a house he can’t afford and a pantry full of useless gadgets. All Paul wants is to get back to normal, even if he’s not sure what that is anymore. When he wanders into Tucker Pawn for a gift to win her back, he meets El Rozal, pawn shop owner and all-around cynic.
El Rozal doesn’t do relationships, especially not with clueless straight boys still pining for their ex. El may make his living dealing in castoffs, but that doesn’t apply to men. Still, when Paul starts clearing out his old life, pawning kitchen equipment he never wanted in the first place, El is drawn to Paul in spite of himself.
Paul and El have nothing in common except a past full of disappointments. There’s no reason to believe the two of them could fit, but in El’s line of work, one man’s junk is another man’s treasure. When it comes to love, El and Paul may learn that secondhand doesn’t mean second best.
What upcoming releases are you looking forward to?
