Howdy guys! I'm super excited because today I finally get to show you the gorgeous cover for Book 2 in the Girlfriends of Gotham series from Swoon Romance! The first book, Men and Martinis, saw Candace Kanie looking in all the wrong places for love, believing she could strongarm it into her life the way she did everything else. And we met Natalie Pepper, who was torn between the man she loves and her job.
Book 2 focuses on Natalie and CJ again, but we also get to follow crazy Lulu's love life. Here's the blurb:
Natalie Pepper thinks she can just be friends with CJ, the man of her dreams. But after seeing him every day at work – and after he lays it all on the line – it becomes pretty clear that something’s gotta give. She’d admit to herself, and to him, that all she really wants is him…if she wasn’t so afraid of losing the best job she’s ever had (and the life it has made possible).
At least she’s got her friends to distract her. Lulu Rossi is an unorthodox and unpredictable spitfire of a girl who has a habit of saying whatever’s on her mind. And while that attribute entertains friends and intrigues her new boyfriend, Andrew, it might be the one thing that stops their relationship from moving forward. Lulu has unintentionally entered the world of Upper East Side royalty, as her ER doctor boyfriend turns out to be the pedigreed heir to an old money fortune – one that is watched over by his manipulative and exceedingly judgmental mother, Elizabeth “Tippy” Barton.
Natalie’s insane supervisor worsens the situation at work when her own man troubles result in a new “no fraternization” policy, and CJ finally gives up and begins to look for other opportunities. Natalie is forced to decide what is important to her for once and for all. Will it be CJ or her job?
Lulu must prove her worth to Andrew’s family – or make him see that the only person whose opinion really matters is his.
So finally, check it out! Here's the cover of Highballs in the Hamptons, which will be out in late September! Click the cover to add it on Goodreads!
