BLURB:

At fifteen, I knew I had found the girl I would one day marry.
At seventeen, I was forced to move across the country and leave her behind, breaking both of our hearts.

Now, I’m back in Everton and ready to live the life I always wanted. I only hope that after so much time, Faith is willing to give me a second chance.

She still takes my breath away, and I’m going to prove to her that things are different this time around. She has always been the one who got away, and nothing will stand in our way. I’ll make sure of it.

Until my family needs me, and I have to choose between them and the woman I love.

Book Recommendations From My Characters

Hey! A few months ago, a readers asked me if I’d share the titles of books I’ve mentioned in my own novels. I love dropping Easter eggs in my books when I write them. I think it’s so much fun to mention characters from my author pals’ books and make them friends with my own characters. It’s always a neat surprise for our cross-over readers!

If you haven’t read any of these, I highly recommend them. I’ve compiled a list sorted by books/series for you to enjoy! Scroll down to read the list!

Romance Books recommended in Fabiola Francisco's novels.

Cameos in the Love in Everton series:

Return to Us by Christy Pastore: Matthew and Tinley are friends with Knox and Harris, Write You a Love Song and Pretend You’re Mine. It’s so fun having them pop in and out of the series! I love this story by Christy Pastore. It’s such a great romance about the struggles of marriage, celebrity drama, and true love.

Verite by Rachel Blaufeld: This is Lia’s favorite book in Roping Your Heart. She even has a signed paperback! This is probably my favorite book by Rachel Blaufeld (though it’s a tough choice!). This sports romance has so much heart. Ty is mine, but I’ll let you borrow him for a bit. If you’re looking for an interracial romance, this is a must.

Redemption Lane by Rachel Blaufeld: Averly and her best friends choose this as their book club pick in Make You Mine! SUCH a good story! It’s full of angst, high emotions, and sexy romance.

Bound to Me by Christy Pastore: Alex and Ella appear in a scene with Matthew and Tinley in You Make It Easy. Alex may be my favorite book boyfriend by Christy Pastore. This is a bodyguard romance with a spunky British heroine and a guarded and broken hero. HIGH recommendation!

Healed by You by Christy Pastore: Grady works with Matthew, and they both are mentioned in Then I Met You when Knox and Sutton work together on a soundtrack for their newest film. Second chances, friendships, and angst make this romance a must read. You’ll love these characters!

Play Me by Cary Hart: Ellie meets Sutton in a Nashville bar in Then I Met You. She gives her advice on love that helps Sutton put her life in perspective. This is such a good romance about a country music singer who’s lost and trying to find her way. Not to mention, she has the perfect hero by her side.

Mentioned in Red Lights Black Hearts:

Max recommends The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho to Samantha in Red Lights Black Hearts. It’s the perfect story for her, and it’s my absolute favorite book!

Mentioned in Twisted in You:

Electrified by Rachel Blaufeld was Blaufeld’s debut, and one of the few books that has ever surprised me. It made my mouth drop. Sienna has been through a lot, and Mikayla reads this novel as a part of her healing process. 

Mentioned in All My Truths & One Lie:

In The Gray by A.D. McCammon: Also a book a character of mine reads, Navia finds a connection with this story in her own path. This story is beautiful and poetic. Deep with meaning and real-life issues.

Cameos in the Rebel Desire series:

The Scripted Duet by Christy Pastore: Cash and Ronan meet as their careers cross paths and they create an unlikely bromance. Ronan and Holliday make appearances throughout the series. This romance is smart, sexy, and suspenseful. It touches on serious subjects while proving you can overcome anything stronger.  

I hope you find some of your favorite reads on this list! I’d love to know if you’ve read any of them or if you plan to read them. Let me know in the comments!

Aced Anthology: Because of You Prologue

I am so excited about being a part of ACED: A Charity Anthology! It’s for such a great cause, and for someone who didn’t enjoy reading while growing up (gasp! I know), it’s even more special. It’s a back to school theme, perfect for this time and to alleviate a bit of the stress currently going on with our real back to school. 

I was never good at reading, and I was very self-conscious about it. Even when I was older and we’d have to read out loud in class, I’d count to see which paragraph or page would be mine so I could read it to myself as many times as possible so I would choke and be embarrassed. And if there was a word I had no idea how to pronounce? Geez, I’d freak while waiting for my turn. 

Being able to come together with some author pals and create a collection that will support literacy in children and adults is an honor. I hope you’d help us support such a great cause. 100% of the proceeds will go to charity. 

I wrote a novella for this anthology, brand spankin’ new couple, and I’m so excited for you to read it! It’s a small town single dad romance.

I’m sharing the prologue below so you can meet Ada and Sawyer, or… Oops, I can’t say until you read the prologue! It will all make sense then. 

Prologue

Sawyer

I sit back with my buddy and drink my beer, watching the woman who’s been moving to the electric beats coming from the speakers since I arrived. She laughs and dances as if no one were watching her. Shaking her hips, luring me in. My eyes follow her as she shimmies to a group of women I assume are her friends and drags two of them by the arms.

Her long hair sways to the beat, and her smile is infectious.

“You’ve been staring at that woman for twenty minutes. Go dance with her.” My friend, Emmet, says with a cocky smile.

“Nah,” I shake my head. I drink my beer and keep watching her with curiosity. “I’ll be moving soon anyway,” I add as an afterthought.

“So?” Emmet’s eyebrows dip as he stares at me as if I’m crazy. “It’s just a dance. Besides, it’s not like Springville is that far from here.”

It’s not about the distance from Nashville, my current home, to Springville, where I’ll be moving to at the end of the summer, but more so the fact that I have a seven-year-old son, River, who counts on me to be the stable one in our home. A relationship, hell, a date, at this point, would just add to the current of change flooding our lives.

“Too much going on to think about a woman,” I finally reply.

“One dance.” Emmet holds up a finger. “As a farewell. We both know you won’t be out again before you leave.”

He’s right. This is a rare night out for me. Usually, I’m with River, spending Friday nights together, watching sports recaps and eating pizza. Doing guy stuff, as he calls it.

I smile as I think about my son, and then abruptly stop when the woman I’ve been eyeing looks my way. Her eyes lock on mine. I can’t tell the shade from here, but I suddenly have the urge to know what color they are.

Wordlessly, I drop my beer on the bar and walk over to her, hands in my pockets. She watches me approach, appraising me from head to toe before a slow smile curves her lips, and she moves her hips in front of me.

I smirk, staring into her eyes, discovering they’re a hypnotizing blue, and begin dancing with her. My hands on her hips. Her hands on my shoulders. We move together as if it weren’t our first meeting.

“What’s your name?” I lean in and whisper, smiling when she shivers.

I look back at those baby blues with a grin.

The woman chuckles shyly, a contrast to the seductive smile she was giving me a moment ago. “Amanda Bynes,” she throws out.

I laugh and shake my head. “Hell, then I’m Justin Bieber.”

“Must be hard going around town without getting some hate thrown your way.”

“Could say the same for you.”

“Eh,” she shrugs. Spinning around and coming back to me, she continues talking. “It’d be an odd pairing.”

I nod, wrapping my arm around her lower back to bring her closer, and we move together to the beat spilling from the speakers. When the song changes to something smoother, I keep her close and guide the dance to something more sensual.

Amanda Bynes’s lips part as her eyes stare into mine. I lean in, feeling her faint breath on her chin before tipping my head down and kissing her, stealing her breath, taking what I can from this stranger who lured me in.

Her hands scrape my scalp, and I cradle her jaw, sweeping my tongue against hers. Her kiss is sweet and tempting, a deadly combination as I scramble how to get some time alone with her while warring with myself that I have a son to get home to soon.

My mystery woman leans back, cutting the kiss shorter than I’d like and leaving me hard. Her body pressed against mine gives me a preview of how good we’d fit together if I could take her home. One night to satisfy this need burning through me.

Suddenly, everything turns chaotic when her friends approach, laughing and eyeing me as they drag her away. It happens so fast, I don’t realize I’m standing alone on the dance floor until Emmet comes up to me, clapping my shoulder.

I’m pretty sure her real name is not Amanda Bynes. That would be a horrific coincidence. I could just imagine people’s faces when she introduces herself.

“Ready to head home?”

“Fuck, yeah.” I run a hand through my hair. It’s probably best this way.

Blurb:

I didn’t choose the role of single dad…it chose me. I’ve been picking up the broken pieces my wife left when she walked out on my daughter and me. The last thing I’m looking for is a relationship.


Then a spunky blonde with a career filled with instability starts making rounds, making me question if I can trust another woman. My daughter isn’t the only one curious about the country star. I’m not a blind man despite how scarred my heart is. She’s gorgeous, kind, and loves my child. What more can a man ask for? 


As I get to know her, she adds sunshine into my grey life, and being with her reminds me of the man I once was. Our lives are destined to take different paths, though, and I’ll do whatever it takes to protect my daughter from the spotlight, even if it means giving up my second chance.

What to Read If You Love Friend to Lovers Romance

Friends to lovers romance is one of my absolute favorite tropes! I won’t hesitate to read a book if it’s friends to lovers. There’s something about the building tension, watching the characters move their relationship from friends to lovers as they figure out what they’re feeling and questioning if it’s worth the risk of their friendship. HINT: It always is.

I am all for strong foundations in relationships, and I feel like having a friendship established helps create that foundation in a new relationship.

It’s not only my favorite trope to read but also to write. If you like to read friends-to-lovers romance books like me, then you’ll love the following books on this list. I hope you enjoy them! I’d love to hear your thoughts after you read them!

Bonus, they’re available in Kindle Unlimited for those of you who read through the subscription.

Escape into a good book

Times are hard. The world feels like we’re living out a Sci-Fi movie (I can’t be the only one that thinks this, right?), and it’s easy to get wrapped up in the fear of all this. While I haven’t had much luck focusing on work, I’ve been reading. It’s helped me escape into another world where my imagination can run wild. I hope to do the same to readers who read my books—provide a safe place you want to escape to for a little while, complete with laughs, heartfelt moments, and happily ever afters.

It’s true, we can’t run from reality, but we can enjoy the perks of our imagination for some time, and reading is the best way for me to do that, personally.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Cornering the stranger at the grocery store to be my fake boyfriend isn’t the best idea I’ve had… Or is it?

Fake relationship

Sexy southern gentleman 

Slow burn goodness

Small town gossip

Flirty banter

BLURB:

I’ve gotten into my fair share of awkward situations… Although, asking a random stranger to be my fake boyfriend is by far the worst.

In my defense, it was an act of desperation. An act that I hope will keep away the men in town who see me as their ticket to becoming the mayor’s son-in-law.

But I have a plan.

1. Date my fake boyfriend long enough for the news to spread across town.

2. Have a very public breakup that leaves me too heartbroken to move on.

3. Continue living my happily single life.

There’s only one problem… Harris wasn’t supposed to be the kind of man I’ve always wanted.

There’s no denying the sparks that fly between us. Just when I’m about to give him my heart, he does the one thing I can’t forgive.

Our breakup is public all right, and the heartbreak is real.

BLURB: 

Lia Montgomery has been my best friend since we were kids, but when she moves back to our hometown, we can’t ignore the chemistry between us. And I’ve come up with a plan to make her mine.

First on the list? Make her my roommate.  

It seems like a great idea at the time, but one look at her in those little pajama shorts and a thin tee shirt, and all I want to do is throw her over my shoulder, caveman style. 

Screw the plan. 

A simple dare changes everything between us. But when I’m challenged to do the one thing that could tear us apart forever, I realize there’s more at risk than just my heart.

EXCERPT:

Surrounded by nature, hearing the horses whinny, everything is in perfect balance. Things are going to be okay. Like any new situation, it takes some time to adjust, even if Axel and I have always understood each other, it’s something new. 

“Here you go.” Axel hands me a glass of wine and sits next to me, a beer bottle in his hand. 

“Thanks.” I take a sip, and he clears his throat loudly. “Sorry,” I smirk and shrug. We toast, and then I take a drink of the red wine as the breeze begins to cool down. 

“I know things got a little weird earlier, but I didn’t want you to feel uncomfortable,” Axel begins speaking, staring straight ahead. Unsure of what to say, I nod. If I deny it, he’ll know I’m lying. If I’m honest, there’s no turning back. I choose silence at the moment, drink more wine, and stare at the mountains. 

After a few minutes, I’ve organized my thoughts. “I wasn’t uncomfortable, but this is new territory.” It’s vague, but it isn’t a lie.

“For me, too.” He finally turns his head to catch my eyes. They’re soft and peaceful as I take in the swirl of colors, combination of amber and brown. 

We may be pretending this is a platonic living situation, but we both know there’s something deeper in the foundation of this agreement. A hope that’s blossoming. Then, why aren’t either of us confident enough to take the next step?
