About That Fling

Tawna Fenske. Amazon/Montlake Romance, $12.95 trade paper (325p) ISBN 978-1-5039-4426-8

Fenske’s take on what happens when a one-night stand goes horribly, painfully awry is hilariously heartwarming and overflowing with genuine emotion. Jenna McArthur has a public relations job she loves, a comfortable home in Portland, Ore., with her elderly aunt (who’s secretly an erotica author), a pregnant best friend whom she adores, and a wine habit that sends her into the arms of Adam Thomas, a handsome fellow she meets in a wine bar. Though neither of them planned for anything beyond flirtation, they end up indulging in one glorious night of anonymous sex—after which fate gleefully throws them together in a series of increasingly awkward daytime encounters. There’s something wonderfully relaxing about being immersed in a story filled with over-the-top characters in undeniably relatable situations. Heartache and humor go hand in hand in this laugh-out-loud story with an ending that requires a few tissues. (Sept.)
