Last year I was given the opportunity to read a book by a new to me author and I was hooked. Her books were full of snark and family and smexy time.If you haven’t yet discovered Dee Tenorio then you need to rectify this immediately and start with this fun series. The next book in the series Trust In Me comes out this summer and you will won’t want to miss it.

For the last twelve years, Raul Montenga has sizzled with erotic dreams of the girl he left behind. When he finally comes back home, determined to find her, it’s not to Penelope’s warm welcome but to a cold shoulder and her icy rejection.
