Star-crossed lovers who are given a second chance...

Phina wakes up in a beautiful place that feels familiar, but she doesn't remember how she got there. When she's told she survived a plane crash, it feels true, but all the details are blurry.

A gorgeous, grumpy stranger owns the house where she's recovering, and she's drawn to him, but everything about him confuses her. His elusive answers. The way he disappears right when they're connecting. The dreams she has of the two of them when they were young.

The longer she's there, the more comfortable she feels in her new home, and the more she falls for Nial.

But her past begins to catch up with her, and it's beyond anything she ever imagined.

June First by Jennifer Hartmann Kindle

𝗕𝗟𝗨𝗥𝗕 

Want to know what happens to a man who barely claws his way out of a tragedy, only to fall right into the arms of the one girl in the world he can never have?

 

Another tragedy, that's what.

 

When I was six years old, my father made a choice that altered the course of my entire life.

Because of what he did, the only girl I ever loved became the only girl I couldn’t have.

 

In a lot of ways, I did have her… I had her first steps, her first words, her first smile. I had her milestones, her heartbreaks, her dreams. I had her heart so woven in with mine, I didn’t know where she ended, and I began.

 

Only, as the years pressed on, lines became blurred—and the blurrier the line, the easier it is to cross.

 

They say tragedy comes in threes.

For me, that was true.

The first one changed me, the second one broke me, and the third one healed me.

 

But at the center of all that tragedy… there is a love story. And at the center of that love story, There is June.


Review of June First by Jennifer Hartmann

June FirstJune First by Jennifer Hartmann
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

June First by Jennifer Hartmann is the epitome of Kindle Crack. This emotion-packed, coming of age and forbidden romance was unputdownable. Jennifer pulled on every last heartstring and wrung out every single possible emotion. Brant and June’s unconventional romance was perfectly imperfect. Their unique story tested family bonds, friendship, love, loss, and tragedy. Go into this book blind. June First is going on my Best of 2022 romance book list.

It’s official, Jennifer Hartman is going on my auto-one-click list!

Keep reading for your first look inside Before I Let Go


The dress’s zipper stubbornly stays put at the middle of my back.

Screw it.

I’ll ask the hostess to zip me up.

I grab my stuff and leave the bathroom just as the outer office door opens and Josiah walks in. His glance skitters over me, starting with my hair and sliding to my bare toes.

“Sorry. I didn’t realize you were in here,” he says.

Josiah’s face is interesting enough to make handsome look mundane, though the man is undeniably fine. The kind of fine that makes you lose your train of thought mid sentence and bite your lip. Gorgeous dark skin gleams, pulled taut over the high sculpted bones of his face. To be so controlled, nearly austere, there is something boundless about his presence. Standing here with him, that energy, an amalgamation of ambition and audacity and swagger, swirls around us in the office. It’s like being corked into a bottle with a typhoon.

His brows lift, querying. I’m staring.

“Oh.” I turn my back to him, as much to recover my composure as to get my zipper up. “It’s stuck. Can ya help?”

He doesn’t answer, and his steps are so quiet I barely hear him cross the room, so the heat of his body warming my exposed skin startles me. The backs of his fingers brush over my spine as he pulls the zipper. It doesn’t budge at first, so he has to tug. Even just that whisper of a touch reminds my skin how to goose-bump. I glance over my shoulder and up, my breath

hitching when our eyes collide. The air around us practically crackles, charged with a familiar current I’d forgotten was even possible.

He clears his throat and slides the zipper to the top. “There you go.”

I turn to face him and am unprepared for how close he stands. I’m barefoot and my view narrows to the broad chest and shoulders of the man in front of me. We’re not alone like this often anymore, leading separate lives that only intersect at our kids and our business. Kassim and Deja are usually around, or staff, friends, coaches, teachers. It’s rarely just us. We used to know each other better than anyone. Now I’m not even sure what he watches in the little free time he has away from this place, or if he even watches TV at all.

“Have you seen Ozark?” I ask.

The thick line of his brows dips. “Nah. Should I?”

“It’s one of the best shows I’ve seen in a really long time. The acting, directing. The writing is stellar.” I’m rambling. I want to shove a sock in my mouth to make it stop running.

“I’ll have to, uh . . . check it out.” He glances at the door. “I need to get back.”

“Yeah.” I reach into the bottom of my suit bag to grab my green heels, bending to slip them on. “I gotta go too.”

He runs a thorough glance from my head to my shoes. “You look . . . nice.”

“Nice?” I scoop up the suit bag, now stuffed with my clothes, and speed to the door, grinning over my shoulder. “Pfftt. I look amazing.”

He shakes his head, allowing a small smile. “You look amazing. Have a good time.”

“I’ll try not to be out too late. And don’t let the kids stay up all night, Si. They have school tomorrow.”

“Like I’m the pushover parent.”

We both know he is, so I just stare at him until his smile broadens to that startling brightness that will snatch your breath if you let it. “Get outta here. I’ll see you at the house.”

The house.

Not home. Not the dream home we worked for and fantasized about for years. Now it’s just the house where the kids and I live. Josiah’s in the same neighborhood, but a few streets over. I’m not sure why my thoughts keep revisiting the past tonight when my reflection, my mindset, everything has “future” written all over it.

Woodland Cliffs Country Club is the crown jewel of the small Monterey-area seaside town. It’s comfortable stomping grounds for those born to money and opportunity. With the club’s esteemed members from near and far, it’s not unusual to spot celebrities, business tycoons, or those with even more power.


It isn’t the glamour or intrigue that attracts Rae Watson to seek a summer job at the Cliffs. As a struggling college student, she simply wants to earn money for her senior year at the university and concentrate on classes.


When Rae’s friend helps secure her summer employment at the Cliffs, Rae willingly accepts. She quickly learns there’s more to the Cliffs, particularly the hidden world of those the country club employs.


The lives of the elite and those who serve them are worlds apart.


What will that mean for Rae and the handsome blue-eyed college student who makes her swoon?


Will she discover the secrets purged from the high cliffs, waiting to be found on the rocky shores, or will she find herself on the edge?

Have you been Aleatha’d?
