Preorder links will be available from Aug 30. For now here’s the blurb

What happens when an ex-boxer finds chemistry with a geek girl? This is one knockout they aren’t prepared for.

Rhys Morgan is a name that used to mean something to people. I was a heavyweight champion boxer, celebrated for my sharp instincts in the ring. That was before. Now, I’ve got a gangster on my back, my late father’s gym to save from ruin, and a brother who refuses to find a decent job.

When I discover the little brat is interviewing to be the boy toy of some spoiled rich girl, I take his place. Only the woman I’m about to tell off is a cute geek and can more than hold her own with me.

Parker Brown has problems too. She’s landed her dream job in renewable energy, but it comes with an old-fashioned boss who wants to see her settling down before he offers her a promotion. Even though we can hardly stand each other, posing as Parker’s boyfriend is a win-win deal. She gets to keep her job, and I’ll charm her boss into sponsoring my gym.

The trouble is this pixie-sized scientist is also gorgeous. And funny. And not even remotely impressed by me. She’s a sucker-punch to the heart. I can’t keep my hands—or my mind—off her. But a girl like Parker isn’t meant for a guy like me.

They say opposites attract. Parker and I are about to combust on impact.

Hold On Cover

Autumn O’Dea has always tried to see the best in people while her big brother, Killian, has always tried to protect her from the worst. While their lonely upbringing made Killian a cynic, it isn’t in Autumn’s nature to be anything but warm and open. However, after a series of relationship disasters and the unsettling realization that she’s drifting aimlessly through life, Autumn wonders if she’s left herself too vulnerable to the world. Deciding some distance from the security blanket of her brother and an unmotivated life in Glasgow is exactly what she needs to find herself, Autumn takes up her friend’s offer to stay at a ski resort in the snowy hills of Montana. Some guy-free alone time on Whitetail Mountain sounds just the thing to get to know herself better.

However, she wasn’t counting on colliding into sexy Grayson King on the slopes. Autumn has never met anyone like Gray. Confident, smart, with a wicked sense of humor, he makes the men she dated seem like boys. Her attraction to him immediately puts her on the defense because being open-hearted in the past has only gotten it broken. Yet it becomes increasingly difficult to resist a man who is not only determined to seduce her, but adamant about helping her find her purpose in life and embrace the person she is. Autumn knows she shouldn’t fall for Gray. It can only end badly. After all their lives are divided by an ocean and their inevitable separation is just another heart break away…

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT FIGHT OR FLIGHT!

“A delightfully flirty read full of banter and heat, Fight or Flight also captivated me with the depth of its emotional intuition. Ava and Caleb positively explode from the pages, and I was left at the end hugging my copy, both satisfied with the fantastic read and bereft that it was over.”Christina Lauren, New York Times, USA Today, and #1 International Bestselling Author

“[Young’s] books have it all—gorgeous writing, sexy characters, heartbreak—I’m addicted.”—#1 New York Times bestselling author Vi Keeland

“Funny, witty, sexy, and a little heartbreaking, [Young’s] outdone herself with Fight or Flight, and that’s saying a lot.”—New York Times bestselling author Penny Reid

“Utterly delicious and addictive, Fight or Flight is Samantha Young at her best. I could not put it down.”—New York Times bestselling author Kristen Callihan

“This romance is a knockout…Living an unexpected life is sometimes more rewarding than planning every last detail, and this book is a testament to the power claimed in vulnerability and how taking chances can lead to the best moments. Passionate, pure, and a perfect addition to the genre; a romance with real heart.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Young makes the temperature rise in this sexy new novel, which blurs the line between friends and friends with benefits…Readers will finish the novel craving more.”—Booklist

“Samantha Young’s latest romance is the quintessential escapist read—a flirty, funny, yet incredibly emotionally resonant love story that sinks its hooks into your heart and makes you both laugh and cry. What starts off as a light-hearted, banter-filled battle of wits quickly evolves into a touching story about love, connection, and new beginnings, turning an enemies-to-lovers trope with an unrequited love twist into so much more.” — Natasha is a Book Junkie

“Fight or Flight by Samantha Young … might be (it for sure is) my new favourite! If you’re a romance fan, I can’t recommend her books enough!”— Swept Away By Books

 

 

portrait of elegant businessman holding cup of coffee on grey

The universe is conspiring against Ava Breevort. As if flying back to Phoenix to bury a childhood friend wasn’t hell enough, a cloud of volcanic ash traveling from overseas delayed her flight back home to Boston. Her last ditch attempt to salvage the trip was thwarted by an arrogant Scotsman, Caleb Scott, who steals a first class seat out from under her. Then over the course of their journey home, their antagonism somehow lands them in bed for the steamiest layover Ava’s ever had. And that’s all it was–until Caleb shows up on her doorstep.

When pure chance pulls Ava back into Caleb’s orbit, he proposes they enjoy their physical connection while he’s stranded in Boston. Ava agrees, knowing her heart’s in no danger since a) she barely likes Caleb and b) his existence in her life is temporary. Not long thereafter Ava realizes she’s made a terrible error because as it turns out Caleb Scott isn’t quite so unlikeable after all. When his stay in Boston becomes permanent, Ava must decide whether to fight her feelings for him or give into them. But even if she does decide to risk her heart on Caleb, there is no guarantee her stubborn Scot will want to risk his heart on her…
