Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating Christina Lauren: Hazel Camille Bradford knows she has to take a lot and, frankly, most men are not up to the challenge. Josh Im has known Hazel since college, where her crazy playfulness proved completely incompatible with his gentle demeanor. From the first night they met — when she threw up mercilessly on his shoes — to the time she sent him an unintelligible email in a post-op haze, Josh has always viewed Hazel more as a spectacle than a peer . But now, ten years later, after a cheating girlfriend turned his life upside down, dating Hazel is a breath of fresh air. Not that Josh and Hazel dated. At least not among themselves. Because going on each other’s increasingly horrible double-blind dates means there’s nothing between them…right? Readers might also enjoy Ali Hazelwood’s The Love Hypothesis or Rachel Lynn Solomon’s Weather Girl.

You Belong to Me by Tari Faris: Real estate agent Hannah Thornton has many talents. Unfortunately, selling houses in the city where her family name is practically poison isn’t one of them. When a business tycoon decides to tear down historic homes in the small town of Heritage, Michigan and replace them with a mall, Hannah decides to stop him. Luke Johnson may have grown up in Heritage, but as a foster child he never really felt like he belonged. Now he has a chance to land a job as an assistant fire chief and earn his place in the city. But as the interview process and Hannah’s restoration project begin to unearth things from his past, Luke must decide if belonging is worth the pain of honestly saying who he is — and who he was. Readers may also enjoy Kathleen Fuller’s “Sold on Love” or Susan May Warren’s “Take a Chance on Me.”
