I started to pull away from Nola, but she stopped me with a
hand on my waist. “Carol’s still watching.”
I didn’t bother pointing out her lie. No one stood in
Carol’s window, and Nola hadn’t bothered to look over her shoulder to
I studied the face in front of me. Her fake smile had been
replaced with a soft look as she gazed back into my eyes.
“Okay,” I said with a smile. I wrapped an arm
around her waist, tugging her closer, our hips brushing against each other.
“How was the little wife’s day at work?”
Nola arched a smooth brow. “Little wife? Hmm, I think
you’re going to have to pick something different.”
“How about Mrs. HOA?”
She scrunched her face up as she thought about it. “No,
I don’t think so. I think I prefer ‘Your Highness.'”
She screeched when I ran my fingers up the side of her ribs.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

Smart, funny and quirky, Mr. H.O.A. is a fantastic fake marriage romance with interesting characters, witty dialog and a swoony hero. From start to finish, Bane and Nola had me hooked. They were playful and teasing as they fell in love while pretending to be married.

I pretty much read this lighthearted romantic comedy during a road trip, and it is definitely a binge-able book to take in poolside or on a rainy afternoon. It’s also a relatively clean read, if that’s your jam. There are some steamy kisses and touches, but this is a no-sex story.

Mr. H.O.A. is a sweet contemporary romance, with lots of crazy family drama and a couple you will fall in love with! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

Author Bio
Carina Taylor writes zany romantic comedies that make you
ugly laugh.

When she’s not writing, you can find her chasing after three little boys,
ignoring her laundry pile, pretending to work out, drinking large amounts of
coffee, and consuming as many cinnamon rolls as possible.
