Learned Behaviors by Jayce Ellis

Jayce Ellis‘ latest book, Learned Behaviors, kicks off her Higher Education series with two single dads pressed to meet a work deadline.

JaQuan Reynolds has sent his baby off to college with pride and faith in her, but now he’s got to figure out what his next steps are as an executive assistant. Things would go smoother if consultant Matthew Donaldson weren’t as uptight as he is sexy, but Jaq has to work with him anyway.

Matt isn’t too thrilled about Jaq either. Sure, Jaq’s voice is more than nice, but Matt is stressed. His son’s Thanksgiving wedding is looming, and he’s determined to celebrate with his family. He refuses to be distracted, even if his blooming connection with Jaq has him longing for more time with the man doing less than work friendly activities.

But as lust grows into something softer, the two may just find that you don’t make time for love — it makes time for you whether you want it to or not.

Learned Behaviors is available now in e-book format.

Here the Whole Time by Vitor Martins

Translated from Portuguese into English, Vitor MartinsHere the Whole Time follows Felipe, a teenage boy set to spend the next 15 days of his school break away from the classmates who bully him for his weight. His plans are to watch TV, make a dent in his TBR pile, and waste time on YouTube tutorials he has no intention on actually using. His mother, however, has other ideas.

She’s invited Caio, their next door neighbor to spend the break with him while his parents are on vacation. Instead of being alone, Felipe is going to have a guest, which wouldn’t be a problem if he didn’t have the biggest crush on Caio.

How is Felipe supposed to relax when he’s supposed to entertain Caio for the next two weeks? He’d planned an extensive rest from worrying about his insecurities and how other people see him, and now that’s out the window. But it seems that Felipe may not be alone in his feelings. Perhaps if he’s willing to give Caio a chance at friendship, he may find that romance isn’t too far behind.

Here the Whole Time is available now in print and e-book format.
