“Shakespearean actor Will and financial analyst Kate aren’t exactly star-crossed lovers, but, despite intense attraction, they can’t ever seem to stay together very long. Set within the Boston theater community and the (equally dramatic) world of high-stakes consulting, Grey’s wry, charming, and compulsively readable novel demonstrates that, when it comes to romance, falling in love is only the beginning.”—Dana Sachs, author of The Secret of the Nightingale Palace
“[In Once Upon a Sunset] the lush backdrop of the Philippines brings new chances at love for both Diana and Margo as the old love letters connect them to a new family.”―Booklist
“Crushing It will speak to gamers and romantics alike. The story pulls at readers’ heartstrings as Sierra gets caught in a love triangle that has her torn between the past and the present, and gamers will love the references to new and old favorites. Parker crushes it in her debut novel.”—Booklist
