Hold Me Today by Maria Luis

Our Recommendation

Even though Mina and Nick have known each other since they were kids, they kept learning new things about each other as they embarked on their fake romance. And it’s those things that finally opened up Nick’s eyes to the woman that has had a crush on him for a decade. You will swoon over all the things Nick does for Mina because it makes her happy, then you’ll laugh at how shocked she is every time because she can’t believe this Greek god of a man finally likes her. I also loved Maria’s premise behind this series and the clues she gives for the next 2 couples. I cannot wait for their stories.

Rock bottom has never felt so good.

At least, that’s what I tell myself when I bargain with the enemy and score a renovation for my hair salon.

The enemy? Nick Stamos, my best friend’s older brother.

He’s got a body and face the Greek gods would envy but his personality needs a major overhaul.

He’s surly.
A rule-follower.
Did I mention he’s seen me naked?

I may have crushed on him for years, but the only place I want Nick swinging his hammer nowadays is at my salon.

Except, he needs something in return. . .

A fake girlfriend.

And I’m just reckless enough to say yes.

"I've thought about this," he tells me, reverent hands skimming my curves, "me fucking you from behind. You seeing our reflection and the outdoors all at once."

"You're so wet," he grunts against my mouth. "Fuck, I can't wait to feel you come against my mouth."

Goddamn him for making me want to swoon after he already had me orgasming on command!

My first foray into the Romance genre came my freshman year in high school English, where the teacher had us all read books from several different genres. So, my first book boyfriend and PnR introduction, if you will, was Richard Merlin, from The Wizard of Seattle. Prior to that, I’d only read Fantasy or Sci-fi, with a little teen horror thrown in for angst. I was reading The Vampire Diaries decades before it was even a twinkle in the eyes of the producers. Now, I am addicted to PnR, always reading at least one book a week about vamps, wolves, angels, demons, Fae, or overall magic.
