Here is my top 5 in no order
Beastly Tales Trilogy by MJ Haag
From Book 1: ** Adult Romance **
Benella is concerned with two things–avoiding the two village boys who torment her and scrounging for food to help feed her family. Unfortunately, the best wild fruit and vegetables are near the walls of the estate, a dark misty place inhabited by an unforgiving beast.
When her tormentors lock her behind the massive gates, Benella knows her fate is sealed. Yet, the fate isn’t one she expects. Her encounter with the beast starts a bizarre cycle of bargaining for her freedom, a freedom the beast seems determined to see her lose.
A classic fairy tale with a seductively dark new twist, the Beauty and the Beast saga begins with Depravity.
Intended for mature readers due to sexual situations and moderate language. This book is part 1 of 3.

Beekeeping Age by Sophie Stern
He’s older. Wiser. Hotter.
And he’s my best friend’s dad.
Remington West is the kind of guy who can get me into a lot of trouble. He’s twenty years older than me, for one thing. He’s Anna’s dad, for another.
Still, there’s an electric energy between us that I just can’t push away.
My body doesn’t seem to care that he’s all wrong for me.
It only seems to care that he’s of beekeeping age, and I…
Well, I’m ready to be kept.
Beekeeping Age is a standalone age-gap contemporary romance.

Get her into my space, and prove to her that despite the past, I’ve always been hers. But when disturbing news about her parents surfaces, and four years of buried tension comes out, the plan takes an unexpected turn. There are three sides to every story. Yours. Theirs. And the truth.Book 2 of the Timber Creek Series. Series will contain interconnected standalones.

Perfect Risk by CA Harms
Perfect Risk (Book #1 in a 12 Book Series)
Mason Creek, Montana is my home. It always has been and truth is, there is no place like it.
I can hide away in a big city, pretend as if I’m not drowning. I can ignore the sadness inside my heart that is begging for a change. But if I’m being honest, my sense of belonging has disappeared. I thought I wanted the big city life, the fast track and all the glamorous things. Turns out, there’s nowhere I’d rather be than home.
Coming back to help run my mom’s business gave me the perfect escape.
But there is one problem.
An unresolved past has a way of haunting anyone. Things can sure get complicated when the man that broke your heart all those years ago is now your new landlord.
It may get a little messy, I may regret my decision to stay…
But then again, this might just be the Perfect Risk.

Worth the Fall by Bria Quinlan
Who could possibly lose her job, apartment, and boyfriend in one day?
I won’t lie. When my boyfriend took me out for a fancy-shmancy dinner, I was thinking jewelry not “please return your security deposit” the weekend I was moving in. Which, can we just talk about the fact I was going to move in with a long-term boyfriend who wanted a security deposit?
Instead, I got a lecture about not being able to pull my weight and a breakup. In public.
I’m over it. I’m over the good-paying job that kept me trapped in the wrong spot, the fear of moving on…and men. New rule: World Domination Without Men.
There’s only one thing slowing me down. That cop.
Yeah. Okay, so I may have accidentally broken some laws this weekend. Nothing big. But that hot cop has shown up everywhere. Now he’s living across the street from my new place and doing super hot cop things like cooking and salsa dancing.
I can’t help but wonder: Can I do the Single Girl Takes on the World thing and let Mr. Hottie Officer in or do I need to put him in the slammer of my big picture plan?
Now I just need to decide: Take over the world solo or risk another heartbreak with Officer Hottie?
