The riot grrrl and the bookworm—just the pair to get the whole town talking…

Liam Byrd loves Halikarnassus, New York. He loves its friendliness, its nosiness, the vibrant library at the center of it all. And now that Joanna Green is home, the whole town sizzles. A rebel like her stirs up excitement, action, desire—at least in Liam.

Joanna never thought she’d have to come back to her dull, tiny fishbowl of a hometown ever again. She almost had a record deal for her all-girl rock band. She almost had it made in L.A. And then her deal went sour and her granny broke her leg . . . and now here she is, running into everybody’s favorite librarian every time she heads to a dive bar or catches up with old friends.

He has charm, he has good taste in music—and the sight of him in running shorts is dangerously distracting. But when he loves her old town and she can’t wait to check out, their new romance is surely destined for the book drop...

Praise for The Undateable

“Socially aware and laugh-out-loud funny, with a love story that’s real enough to imagine reading about on Twitter. A delightful start to Librarians in Love.” —Kirkus Reviews, STARRED Review
“Title launches her Librarians in Love contemporary romance series with a hilarious and charming first installment . . . Funny, engrossing, and delightfully written.” —Publishers Weekly, STARRED Review

Baker & Taylor
When the record deal for her all-girl band falls apart, and her grandmother breaks her leg, Joanna Green returns home to the sleepy town of Halikarnassus, New York, a place that's far too square for her, and from which she can't wait to escape, if not for bookish, yet very fit, librarian Liam Byrd. Original.

Ignore the cover, which is slightly terrible, and dive into this charming story of a rocker and riot grrrl who has to come home after a bad gig, and the librarian with the nicest legs in town. It's a hoot and much better than it should have been. And I can say - the library work is depicted accurately!

A riot grrrl and a librarian with a runner's body? I just found my new trope.

This book is pretty much perfect.

This is a funny small-town contemporary romance featuring a librarian (!) hero and a musician heroine who's back in her hometown after a bit of a quarter-life crisis about the state of her music career out in LA. The hero and heroine feel well-matched, and the small town setting is enhanced with lots of quirky secondary characters. I'm not a huge fan of small-town contemporaries as a rule (though there are clearly exceptions), but I had trouble putting this one down. Charming and fun. ‚Äč
