Recommended by Marissa

If you haven't read Maria Luis Author, yet, I highly recommend this one.  This sexy 2nd chance romance had the perfect mix of hotness, slow burn, and funny side characters.  It also had meddling families and a little mystery suspense. Though there was plenty of heat building from the beginning, I liked that they didn’t just fall back into bed like the heartbreak never happened.  Shaelynn and Brady had to learn to trust each other again and see if they were willing to fit into each other’s lives. I can't wait to read about the other couples.

Because even though this was Brady, the man who had once ripped her heart out, she knew, strange as it was, that she didn't have to fear him.

He left her no choice but to feel. Feel in a way that she hadn't in years, to allow her mind and body to be connected in the present.

Brady entered her in one smooth stroke that she felt all the way to the tips of her toes and to the wary corner of her heart.

Laws of Engagement for dealing with an Ex:
Rule #1: Don't give into temptation for a kiss just to see if they taste the same.
Rule #2: No clothing removal. Seriously, don't take them off.

Twelve years and too many pairs of stilettos later, Shaelyn Lawrence is back where she started: New Orleans. She's returned only to take care of her grandmother, and after that? She's out, hopefully long before she sees irresistible Brady Taylor, the boy who stomped all over her heart. But when a family member approaches her for help, there's only one person she can to turn to...and he's just as infuriatingly sexy as she remembers. Oh boy.

New Orleans Detective Brady Taylor has his sights on the finish line: getting promoted to sergeant. Nothing, and no one, is getting in his way--except that he didn't prepare for her return, the girl who left him without a word. Resisting Shaelyn has never been his strong suit, and now all he can think about is stripping her out of her f*ck-me heels and kissing the lipstick off her sassy mouth. And when she asks him for help, he's forced to decide between his career and the woman he's never stopped loving.

Rule #3: Don't even think about falling in love again...

SAY YOU'LL BE MINE is the first full-length novel in the NOLA Heart series, but can be read as a standalone. If you like quirky characters, hot cops, and steamy scenes that will have you fanning your kindle, then you're in the right place. Things are about to get hot down in the Big Easy...

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.
