The Hookup Dilemma

Constance Gillam. Entangled Amara, $15.99 trade paper (400p) ISBN 978-1-68281-572-4
Gillam (the Lakota series) delivers a steamy romance following two people on opposite sides of a battle over the gentrification of a neighborhood. Rashida Howard is a food critic who avoids one-night stands. Elliott Quinn’s a workaholic architect with no time for love. But when they meet in a crowded Atlanta bar, they have instant chemistry. After hours of heated banter, they each break character by hooking up in the hotel across the street. The dilemma? It turns out that Elliott’s father’s company—which Elliott is temporarily running—is planning to develop a commercial building in Rashida’s grandmother’s neighborhood, while Rashida is fighting to prevent construction and save the area from impending gentrification. Now they must resist their attraction and ignore their undeniable chemistry to fight from their separate corners and maintain their integrity—a task that only grows harder when their feelings deepen into love. Gillam’s heartwarming romance demonstrates how happily-ever-afters can arise from even the most unfortunate of situations. This will undoubtedly make readers smile.
