Our August book was 99% Mine by Sally Thorne and we had more than one report of readers finishing it in a weekend - it's just that good! So, if you've already finished and you're looking for some more reading material before our September box is posted (not long now!), here are three more books to read if you loved 99% Mine...
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
Lucy and Josh work together in publishing, sharing an office and finding little ways to drive each other crazy because they hate each other... or do they?
Josh is basically the dream book boyfriend and Lucy is adorable and quirky without being too manic pixie dream girl. They work with books, which is obviously fantastic if you're a book fan (which I'm guessing, if you're here, then you are!).
Everything about this book is just perfection, and if you loved 99% Mine then I guarantee that you will adore The Hating Game just as much. Oh, and there's a movie coming out soon, so read it now to be ahead of the curve!
Fix Her Up by Tessa Bailey
No one takes Georgia seriously - she's a clown after all - but she's determined to fix herself up. And what better way to prove she's not just the 'little sister' than fake-dating the town heartthrob, Travis, who's after a job now that an injury has taken him out of his major league baseball career?
As we mentioned, we love a good property show or house project, and it seems like the world of romance does, too. This is another book with a hero that's in the house-flipping game but that's not the only renovation going on. Our quirky heroine is also on a mission to makeover her life and 'put herself on the market' with a hair-brained scheme that might just work.
This book is filled with a load of romance tropes that we love, including a fake relationship (swoon) and is all wrapped up with Tessa Bailey's usual wit and charm. Oh, and this author is also the queen of dirty talk, so don't be too fooled by the cute cover!
Because of Miss Bridgerton by Julia Quinn
Everyone expects Billie Bridgerton to marry one of the Rokesby brothers - any of them would make a great husband... except George, who she cannot stand (and she's pretty sure the feeling is mutual). But when the two are thrown together, the two realise they might not be able to live without each other, after all...
Julia Quinn's books are always a delightful read - funny, sexy and heartwarming in all the right measures. Whilst this is a historical romance (rather than a contemporary), there are a lot of the same elements to enjoy - the slightly spiky but ultimately adorable heroine who's not everyone's cup of tea, the family friendship and long history between them, and the witty repartee.
