There’s just something about the month of October that makes us all warm and tingly over here at Book+Main. We’re looking forward to sweater-weather, bonfires, S’mores and of course, being cuddled up with a new favorite book! In fact, we found THIRTEEN being released this month, that we can’t wait to get our hands on. Enjoy.

I have a hopeless, foolish, schoolgirl crush on you when you are the last person on earth I should be falling for. Did you know people around the office call you a sadist? An egomaniac. An insensitive, arrogant prick. But what they don’t know is your bark is worse than your bite. And that bite doesn’t scare me. The fact is, I’d love that bite of yours to nip at my bare skin while we’re both wearing nothing but sheets.
For once I want you to look at me as more than one of your employees.

But I’m not that guy anymore, and all I need is one shot to convince her.
