Danny Doormat by Rowan McAllister (available on Hoopla)- Danny Dorfmann is dependable, no matter what's going on in his own life. So when widower Asa needs a sitter for his dog, Minion, Danny is the natural choice. Besides, Danny's had a crush on Asa-a hot architect who's way out of his league-for years. Friendly adventures gradually turn into something deeper, but a manipulative roommate and interfering family and friends want to douse the slow burn building between Danny and Asa. To keep the chances of a happily ever after going, Danny will have to take a stand-and to hold on to the man of his dreams, he'll have to stop letting everybody walk all over him.

The Killing Tide by Dani Pettrey (available on Hoopla and CloudLibrary)- When one Coast Guard officer is found dead and another goes missing, Coast Guard Investigative Service special agent Finn Walker faces his most dangerous crime yet. His only clues are what little evidence remains aboard the dead officer's boat, and the direction the clues point to will test Finn and the Guard to their limits.
When investigative reporter--and Finn's boss's sister--Gabby Rowley arrives, her unrelenting questions complicate an already volatile situation. Now that she's back, the tug on Finn's heart is strong, but with the risks she's taking for her next big story, he fears she might not live through it.

Even if it Kills Her by Kate White (available on Hoopla and CloudLibrary)- Jillian Lowe seemed to have it all. Both beautiful and accomplished, she lit up any room that she walked into.

The crime shattered what was once a picture-perfect family and nearly derailed Jillian's hopes for her future.

The Hungry Tide by Amitav Ghosh (available on Hoopla)- The Hungry Tide is a very contemporary story of adventure and unlikely love, identity, and history, set in one of the most fascinating regions on the earth.

Attacks by deadly tigers are common. Unrest and eviction are constant threats. Without warning, at any time, tidal floods rise and surge over the land, leaving devastation in their wake. In this place of vengeful beauty, the lives of three people from different worlds collide.
