Strictly Ballroom meets How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days in this steamy romantic comedy.
Nicole “Nix” Mendez is done with men. Every guy she dates turns out to be some flavor of douchebag— she’s been dumped for everything from overtexting to her unabashed love of eighties movies, and she’s tired of getting her heart trampled. She’s determined to focus on her fledgling ballroom dance studio and her upcoming European dance tour free from romantic distractions.
On the very first day of the tour, Nix gets stuck in an elevator with the hottest guy in ballroom dance. Marcus Corbin has always seemed broody and aloof, but when they’re alone, he’s sweet, funny, and sexy enough to tempt Nix to abandon her vow of celibacy. Nix isn’t looking for a relationship with Marcus—but he could be the perfect guy to scratch that itch without the stress of commitment and eventual heartbreak.
As Nix grows closer to Marcus, she finds herself wanting more than just a booty call, and it seems that he does too. She can’t bring herself to just walk away, but she’s been broken up with too many times to put her trust in another relationship. So she concocts a plan: she’ll subject Marcus to every stupid habit and quirk that’s gotten her dumped in the past. This way she’ll be sure to get rid of him before she gets too attached, saving them both a lot of trouble in the long run.
With a plan this foolproof, what could go wrong?
True story, this book is our love letter to the Real Housewives. And maybe our hate mail, too, we’ll leave that for you to decide.
If you’ve been following the series, you’ve already met Jason and Emily. This book picks up with them two years after they met during Su-Lin’s Super Awesome Casual Dating Plan. We’re so happy to be able to share their love story with you as they teach entitled, rich socialites to rock climb, and try to sort through their own relationship drama.
Social media maven Emily Pietrowski loves working alongside her boyfriend, celebrity rock climber Jason Winslow. But she’s less enthused about Jason’s new gig as the host of the reality show, The Real Not-Wives of Red Rock Canyon, where they’ll be camping with affluent divorcees who are trying to find self-actualization through rock climbing. It’s only her love for Jason that could motivate her to spend a week on a set filled with purse dogs, bejeweled climbing harnesses, and organic, sugar-free s’mores.
Jason and Emily have been going strong for the last two years, but lately Emily is starting to feel like their relationship is stuck in a rut. She’s ready to take the next step, but every time she brings up their future, it seems like Jason is, well . . . not.
When Emily is recorded confronting Jason about her concerns, they unwittingly become part of the on-screen drama. Emily will do anything to save her relationship, even if it means agreeing to on-camera therapy sessions with dubiously licensed Monroe Coco, the biggest diva of them all.
This crazy week could make or break them—but is it already too late?
When We Fell, prequel to Ex on the Beach, is the story of how Kim Watterson and Blake Pless first fell in love–and then fell apart. Kim and Blake have their second chance in Ex on the Beach, but what happened the first time around? Find out in When We Fell! You can grab it today for 2.99 on Kindle, or read for free in KU!
One thing to be aware of, unlike ALL our other books, this one does end in a cliff hanger rather than a happily ever after, as first chances tend to do. But don’t worry! Ex on the Beach is available, and you can dive right into their second chance story and experience Kim and Blake’s happily ever after, whether you’ve read it before or not. When We Fell is meant to be a new entry point for the series, so you can read these books even if you haven’t read the others. Kim and Blake have been mentioned in the other books, but they aren’t as connected to many of the other characters, so you won’t be missing a thing. (But of course you’ll eventually want to go back and read the other books in the series, because why wouldn’t you. 🙂
Ex on the Beach, book eleven in The Extra Series, is now available! You can buy it on Amazon or read it for free in Kindle Unlimited. It’s on sale at a special release price until the end of the week, so grab it now, don’t wait!
Ex on the Beach is a second chance romance, the story of A-list actors and former Hollywood It Couple Kim Watterson and Blake Pless, who divorced six years ago. Rumors abound in Hollywood as to what went wrong…and it turns out not even Kim and Blake know the truth.
