Last Chance Books

Forthcoming May 2021

Don’t you just love the smell of old books in the morning?

Madeline Moore does. Books & Moore, the musty bookstore her family has owned for generations, is where she feels most herself. Nothing is going to stop her from coming back after college to take over the store from her beloved aunt. It’s her destiny.

Well, it was. That is, until a Prologue—a PROLOGUE!—opens across the street from B&M. A chain bookstore? On their block? Madeline will not take that lying down, even if her dysfunctional family is insisting on ignoring the imminent threat.

Madeline attempts to set her Destroy Prologue plans in motion, but the guy who works over there seems intent on ruining her life. Not only is he taking her customers, he has the unbelievable audacity to be… extremely cute.

But that doesn’t matter. Jasper is the enemy and he will be destroyed. After all—all’s fair in love and retail. 


"The plot moves along briskly with romantic tension, sex-positive moments, comedic beats, and Madeline’s determination to save the store[...]A solid rom-com."


"This lighthearted page-turner is recommended for all young adult collections."
