Such A Pretty Face by Gabrielle Goldsby
When a girl gets dumped, she can cry…or get even. Mia Sanchez is rocked when her partner of four years, Brenda Montalba, informs her that she has fallen out of love with her and plans to leave town for several months to give them time to “think about their future together.”
Mia hadn’t thought words could be more painful until Brenda followed up hers with, “You’ve really let yourself go over the last few years.” Alone, hurt, and embarrassed, Mia decides to take the advice of friend Mathew “Goody” Good, the self crowned Queen of Getting Dumped when he tells her, “The best way to get over them is to get even.”
A sexy, sometimes humorous, sometimes poignant, contemporary romance that exposes the importance of looking beneath the surface for what truly matters.

Will Brandi still be there intoxicating him with her kisses…or will Adam lose his chance for a lifetime of love?
Dangerous Curves Ahead by Sugar Jamison
Ellis Garrett is dumping her critical boyfriend, opening a plus-size clothing store, and starting a blog–all to spread the word that fashion shouldn’t require a size-two body, and happiness should allow for the occasional cupcake. Or two. But is indulging fantasies about her sister’s long-ago ex, the still-hunky Michael Edwards, biting off more than she can chew?
Mike must be losing his detective’s touch. He doesn’t recognize Ellis when he bumps into her at Size Me Up, and he certainly doesn’t remember his ex-girlfriend’s outspoken sister being so irresistible. Her curves are indeed dangerous–and so is her wit. Could it be that Ellis is his Perfect Fit? One thing’s for sure: Mike will make it his sworn duty to find out…
