Happy Book Birthday, Paige in Progress!

Grab your noise makers and party hats (and why don't you stop off and grab me a couple cupcakes, too...), and let's celebrate!

Paige in Progress, the third standalone in the Reluctant Hearts series, releases today. This book was such a labor of love, and love it I do. It's probably my favorite book I've ever written, with my favorite characters I've ever written about. I just love these two so... Readers are calling it laugh-out-loud funny, swoony, and uber sexy (so sexy that I probably shouldn't post an excerpt on this PG blog, so you're going to have to take my word for it).

Without further ado, here are the deets of this new release!

She wanted a one-night stand…and then he moved in next door. 
Paige Bennett is more than content with her life and what she does—and does not—have in it. She’s got a supportive family, a great apartment, and the best friend a girl could ask for; so what if her relationships expire faster than a carton of milk? After a disastrous detour courtesy of poor judgment in the boyfriend department, her plan is back on track and her dream job is finally within her grasp. Nothing can make her lose focus now. Well, nothing except the one-night stand she had with her best friend’s surrogate brother. The one-night stand she can’t stop thinking about.
Adam Reid has always been reliable…the responsible son, the loyal friend, the steady boyfriend. Two years ago, he graduated Magna Cum Laude and is well on his way to making a name for himself at an accounting firm in Denver—a far cry from working as a helper in the Mom and Pop store his parents own in Michigan. But when said store starts failing, he’s the only one who can step in and help. So reliable Adam does what he always does, and he comes to the rescue.
Paige thought Adam was a safe bet because he lives halfway across the country. But then suddenly he’s moving back to their town, and then into her apartment building, and soon he’s worming his way right into her life. If she’s not careful, he might sneak his way into her heart, too…
