I'm pretty amped for Smash It! Here's why:
I live in a state where fireworks are legal, sold on the side of the road, in the dang grocery store... I have a love-hate relationship with them. That said, I've loved Erin McLellan's So Over the Holidays series, so I was excited to read Bottle Rocket. These erotic romance novellas follow the Holiday siblings and are set around Christmas, Valentine's Day and now Independence Day and they're packed with sex toys, a bit of kink and queerness.

Recently I had the opportunity to sit and talk with Alisha Rai about The Right Swipe, romance and dating. The Right Swipe is the first in Modern Love, a new series for Rai with Avon, who previously published her angsty and soapy Forbidden Hearts series. In The Right Swipe the main characters meet via a dating app, and although they had fantastic chemistry, they just as quickly lost that connection only to be reunited unexpectedly in a very public way. The realities of modern dating via apps, from sexting to ghosting are central.
