No one should have to choose between love and justice.
Haitian-born professor and activist Patrice Denis is not here for anything that will veer him off the path he’s worked so hard for. One particularly dangerous distraction: Easton Archer, the assistant district attorney who last summer gave Patrice some of the most intense nights of his life, and still makes him all but forget they’re from two completely different worlds.
All-around golden boy Easton forged his own path to success, choosing public service over the comforts of his family’s wealth. With local law enforcement unfairly targeting young men of color, and his career—and conscience—on the line, now is hardly the time to be thirsting after Patrice again. Even if their nights together have turned into so much more.
For the first time, Patrice is tempted to open up and embrace the happiness he’s always denied himself. But as tensions between the community and the sheriff’s office grow by the day, Easton’s personal and professional lives collide. And when the issue at hand hits closer to home than either could imagine, they’ll have to work to forge a path forward…together.

A Note From the Publisher
American Love Story is book #3 in the critically acclaimed Dreamers series by Adriana Herrera.
"Clear-eyed and unflinchingly honest, Herrera's American Love Story is forward-thinking, soothsaying romance. A bellwether story giving us hope for what romance is capable of in the future, and in Herrera's hands, capable of right now. This book is at once effortless social commentary that doesn't preach and swoony romance that doesn't skimp on the heat and chemistry boiling between the characters. Herrera continues to prove that she is a fresh voice ushering in the kind of inclusive storytelling this genre so desperately needs." —Kennedy Ryan, RITA® Award-Winning Author
“Adriana Herrera writes family—all kinds of family—better than anyone else writing today. American Love Story is a sweet and sexy slow burn and I devoured it.” —Cat Sebastian
“Adriana Herrera writes romance with teeth—you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll be refreshed and inspired to fight even harder to create the vibrant, welcoming America in which her books are set.” —New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann
“Basically, this is a book that raises really complicated questions and doesn't try to offer glib or easy answers. I loved that… It very much reflects the exhaustion that pretty much anyone who cares about social justice is feeling right now, but it never loses hope that we can make things better. And hope is what romance is all about.” —KJ Charles
