NEW SERIES BY Roya Carmen!! Each one can be read as a standalone (though there’s a crossover/spinoff twist for book #3 – SO CLEVER!!!) and I especially love the sound of the first book since the heroine has OCD and her husband has a secret.
P.S. So what’s that clever twist? For those that loved her Rule Breakers” series/Ground Rules there’s a special surprise coming for you in book #3 of THIS series in regards to a specific hero!!!!!! Yep. You guessed it. 😉 Eeeeeeeep! I squeed when I found out, BUT!!!!! If you haven’t read Ground Rules yet, make sure you read that trilogy BEFORE reading book #3 of THIS trilogy. It will be a HUGE spoiler for Ground Rules. Got it? Good! 😀
About the series (and especially about upcoming book #3) the author says:
Unlike the other two books, which are suspense focused, this one is steamier and lighter… funny at times. It’s a fun boss secretary romance. There’s still suspense in the sense that we don’t know the circumstances of *spoiler* and *spoiler* until later in the story.
About book #1:
Some secrets are meant to be discovered.
Mischa Lombardi is odd. Pragmatic. Perfectionist. Neurotic. Diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder at the age of eleven, she can’t remember being any other way.
Thankfully, with the assistance of medication and therapy, her life is well under control. Some might even say it’s perfect: a beautiful husband, her sons Trevor and Tristan, a fabulous condo, work she enjoys and great friends.
Yet she’s still extremely fragile. It’s the reason she always guards her emotions very carefully. And unfortunately, nothing can help her when, by chance, she discovers her husband’s secret — Ava, a beautiful young woman. She was so sure she knew her husband, but now she desperately needs to uncover the truth.
It’s no surprise when she becomes obsessed with Ava, with every trivial detail of her life; her friends, her beautiful mother, and most of all, her gentle and sweet father. Driven not only by curiosity and obsession, but also by jealousy and lust, she heads down a turbulent path as she sets out to uncover everything about her husband’s secret life and all the mysterious people in it.
SERIES READING ORDER:
- The Girl He Loves (Orchard Heights (standalone) Book 1)
- The Man Next Door: Orchard Heights Book 2 – standalone
- The Boss Upstairs (Orchard Heights Book 3 (standalone)) – October 27th 2020 <— BIG HUGE NOTE!! DO NOT READ THE SYNOPSIS FOR THIS BOOK until you’ve read the first three books in “The Ground Rules/The Rule Breakers Series” (or *if* you intend on reading the first three, that is). 😉 Unless you just want to read this as a standalone – then that’s fine too. But this is a main character from the original trilogy and might spoil some parts of that trilogy.
The author says:
“…It’s a sweet and steamy Boss Secretary romance with a bit of drama and a dash of romcom. It’s kind of like an epilogue to THE GROUND RULES. It’s also a standalone. :)”
She also says:
It will be Gretchen’s story, from her point of view. And her hero is… wait for it…. *spoiler*! From The Ground Rules. I’d alluded to a Mr. Dark & Mysterious in the first two books. 🙂
Many of the readers were upset for *spoiler*. And there were a few questions and issues readers wanted answered.
There’s also a few things revealed that we never knew before… I wanted *spoiler* to get his happy ending all the readers wanted.
HOLY MOLY HOW COOL!!!!!! I love these clever tie-ins!!! 🙂
