✱✱Book Review✱✱ Release Blitz for The Sweetest Thing by Maya Hughes


Amazon Exclusive
Read for FREE with Kindle Unlimited



Goldilocks has gotten a bit off track. I found her in my room, my bathroom and my bathtub to be precise.

Sabrina Mason is my new roommate. My new unwelcome roommate. Babysitting my Grandma's apartment means Sabrina's here to stay. But we'd agreed my room was off limits.

It’s bad enough my nightmares are getting worse, but having her around makes holding it together a little easier. Her smell, smart mouth and sexy a--anyway. I can’t let her get under my skin although it might be too late. In her sloppy bun and pajamas curled up on the couch, she’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. But a relationship isn’t what I need right now.

It’s hard to remember that when she’s glowering at me when I’m being an ass. We’re forced to live together for only a few more months, I can hold out until I can’t.

She’s in my bathtub and she’s not telling me to leave. So I ask the question, “do you want me to go?”

And I’m shocked as hell when her answer isn’t ‘yes’.

A little bit of steamy standalone grumpy roommate romance bliss. The laughs and feels are all here in this forced proximity, enemies to lovers story featuring the best in found family, a hero standing up for the woman he's falling for and a happily ever after.

He set his blazer down on the counter and slipped off his cuff links. “You don’t need to hop out.”

Goose bumps rose on my whole body, tightening my flesh even in the warm bath. “I don’t?”

“Only if you want to.” He stared at me, and there was a flicker in his eyes like he’d made a decision.

My stomach flipped, straight into a back handspring. “I don’t?”

The corner of his lips lifted. “Was that a question?” He rolled his sleeve from the cuff, folding the pressed white fabric higher up his arm, exposing the tanned and sinewy forearms. Veins, tendons, muscle.

“No. I just got in, but I wasn’t expecting an audience.” Had the heat kicked on? Because my skin not submerged in the water didn’t feel the slightest bit chilled. It felt closer to super-heated as his gaze swept over me.

“You’re driving me absolutely crazy.”

Standing beside the tub, towering over me, he could see my body beneath the water.

A shiver skated along my skin.

“In a good way?” My body was on high alert, vibrating in a wanton way where the water teased and taunted body parts like I wanted his fingers to.

“In the worst way.” He finished with his second sleeve, never taking his eyes off me. Eyes blazing with a carnal passion that sent shock waves through me. “Do you want me to leave?”

Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐
Lots of feels, wit, and swoony romance in this second Swank love story. This time, it's Hunter's turn, and while I love a grouchy alpha male, Maya Hughes took us a little too close for comfort with his redemption. But then, what would this one be without that aha moment of redemption? Several times, I really wanted to shake some sense into Hunter, but as it turns out, I didn't need to worry. Maya gives us a leading lady with all the sass she needs to put her grumpy roommate in his place. Given the backgrounds of both Sabrina and Hunter, it wasn't hard to see where the angst was coming from. but I still found myself holding my breath when the moment struck. This one is a forced proximity romance and these two really butt heads as they settle in. I enjoyed the journey from sort of enemies to wary friendship to something a whole lot more. The chemistry is thick between our couple and a big part of the fun was "watching" them circle each other. The Sweetest Thing is another engaging and entertaining romance from Maya Hughes and a solid addition to the series. I can't wait to see what she has in store for the next Swank couple. 




Maya Hughes, that's me!, can often be found sneaking in another chapter while hiding in the bathroom from her kids! :-) I'm a romance writer who loves taking inspiration from everyday life, namely my husband and biggest fan. Inspiration also strikes when I hear a song, meet someone new or daydream while at soccer practice.


I love writing stories that capture the possibilities of the paths less travelled and enjoy experiencing life through my characters’ eyes.


I'm the mom of three little ones, the wife to an amazing husband and also work full time. Some of my favorite things are cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, white wine, laughing until I can't breathe, traveling with my family and Jeff Goldblum.
