Ready to return to Mistywood Lane? If so, Hooked on You (Mistywood Lane Book 4) is available on Amazon.

Yay! I'm so excited to share this one. 

FINALLY! Whew!

And, honestly, I'm kicking myself for dragging my feet for so long.  :D

Here's the novel's description:

Mistywood Lane neighbors Preston Holmes and Zoe Rollins have been besties since the epitome of friendship meant sharing your Pokéman bubblegum cards. 
 
Now Zoe, crochet designer/owner of Hot Off the Hook/yoga instructor, is engaged to school teacher/up-and-coming assemblage artist Dante Gregory. 
 
 
Bucking the norm has been her style, so of course, she sidesteps a traditional wedding party.  Dante will have his best man while Zoe taps Preston as her all-purpose “best dude.”
 
 
Preston plans to suck it up and rise to the challenge. However, there’s a hitch. Her “brother from another mother” has caught feelings complicating the plan. He’s torn between his growing physical attraction to Zoe and the need to do what’s right — leaving his bestie to a man who promises to deliver her happily ever after.
 
 
Playa-Playa Preston is unwilling to torpedo a decades-long friendship to scratch a pesky itch. 
 
 
 So he’s made a tough decision and aims to follow through, giving his opinions on cupcakes, flower arrangements, do-it-yourself invitations, and dollar store wedding gowns.
 
 And where there’s smoke, there’s “Hellfire.”
 
 
Preston’s determined to crush his tasks, but is he the best dude in more ways than one?
 
I hope you enjoy Zoe, Preston, and their crew.  I've also included a big update on one of the Sommers sisters.  
 
Update July 19, 2021:  A link to the first review below. It's posted on Romance In Color.
 
 
 
Hooked on You was so much fun to write. Don't miss the Author's Note I attached at the end of the novel. There's detail I hope you'll find interesting.

This is my second time doing the friends-to-lovers trope. (First time? What a Girl Wants.) 
 
Another fave trope is enemies-to-lovers. I explored that one in my romances The Flirtationship (formerly titled It's a Love Thang), He Could Be the One, and my chick lit novel Just Her Type.
 
 
All books in this series can be read as standalones and in any order.

Side note: Hooked on You was my National Novel Writing Month project for 2019.  I scored a "win" with the roughest of rough drafts in 30 days. However, it took an additional year to whip it into readable shape. lol  See my NaNoWriMo badge (right). 
 
I also wrote the roughest draft of He Could Be the One as my NaNoWriMo 2016 project.
