Brighton Walsh shares the official synopsis and cover for the third book in her Reluctant Hearts series, Paige in Progress. Pre-order your copy today!
One of the defining features of a good novel is compelling characterization. Sure, we have to find the hero and heroine relatable, but it’s always a bonus when secondary characters add to the story in meaningful ways. Brighton Walsh is a dynamo at doing just this. We fall in love with her leading men and ladies, but then we also really like their family/friends! And isn’t it just perfect that Brighton is willing to explore those secondary stories?!
That is an excerpt from my review of Tessa Ever After from May 2015, and six months later, it still embodies how I feel about Brighton’s work! It’s pretty clear by now that I’m a MASSIVE Brighton fangirl, and lucky for me (AND YOU!), she has another juicy contemporary romance novel for us to devour.
Earlier this week, Brighton shared the official synopsis and cover for the third book in her Reluctant Hearts series, Paige in Progress, coming January 19, 2016. If you’ve read the other novels in the series, you know Paige Bennett is Tessa Maxwell’s sassy best friend. I, for one, am so glad we’re getting this story! Check out the details below:
She wanted a one-night stand…and then he moved in next door.
Paige Bennett is more than content with her life and what she does—and does not—have in it. She’s got a supportive family, a great apartment, and the best friend a girl could ask for; so what if her relationships expire faster than a carton of milk? After a disastrous detour courtesy of poor judgment in the boyfriend department, her plan is back on track and her dream job is finally within her grasp. Nothing can make her lose focus now. Well, nothing except the one-night stand she had with her best friend’s surrogate brother. The one-night stand she can’t stop thinking about.
Adam Reid has always been reliable…the responsible son, the loyal friend, the steady boyfriend. Two years ago, he graduated Magna Cum Laude and is well on his way to making a name for himself at an accounting firm in Denver—a far cry from working as a helper in the Mom and Pop store his parents own in Michigan. But when said store starts failing, he’s the only one who can step in and help. So reliable Adam does what he always does, and he comes to the rescue.
Paige thought Adam was a safe bet because he lives halfway across the country. But then suddenly he’s moving back to their town, and then into her apartment building, and soon he’s worming his way right into her life. If she’s not careful, he might sneak his way into her heart, too…
I am HERE for this one-night-stand to more story! It’ll be interesting to see how reliable Adam convinces brazen Paige to take a chance on him. And I trust Brighton to provide us with some HOT sexy times too 😉
