"A sexy, emotional, and pitch-perfect romance." —NPR on Lush Money

Guapo pobrecito her grandmother calls him. The “poor handsome man.”

Professor Jeremiah Post, the poor handsome man, is in fact standing in the way of Alejandra “Alex” Torres turning Loretta’s, her grandmother’s bar, into a viable business. The hot brainiac who sleeps in one of the upstairs tenant rooms already has all of her Mexican American family’s admiration; she won’t let him have the bar and building she needs to resurrect her career, too.

Alex blowing into town has rocked Jeremiah to his mild-mannered core, but the large, boisterous Torres clan is everything he never had. He doesn’t believe Alex has the best interest of her family, their community or the bar’s legacy in mind. To protect all three, he’ll stand up to the tough and tattooed bartender with whom he now shares a bedroom wall—and resist the insta-lust they both feel.

But when an old enemy threatens Loretta’s and the surrounding neighborhood, Alex and Jeremiah must combine forces. It will take her might and his mind to save the home they both desperately need.

Hold. My. Heart. It now resides with these five chapters. Oh my goodness. ***THE CHEMISTRY***. The banter. These characters have snagged my interest and I am now DYING for the rest of the book.

So. Good!!!!!!! Absolutely loved every page here.

The enemies to lovers potential of this book is incredibly potent and I cannot WAIT to get into the meat of the story. Alex and Jeremiah are such dynamic characters on the page already and their clashing yet compatible goals for the bar make for some really compelling tension.

WHEW after reading just the first 5 chapters, I can't wait to finish the rest. I"m a sucker for a good enemies to lovers romance, especially one with a bit of spice and heat *wink wink*. Love the dynamic between the main characters, as well as the focus on family relationships and legacy. Looking forward to July, when I can read the full book!

After Hours on Milagro Street promises to be a fiery romance. The chemistry between the two main characters is immediate. This later leads to an awkward situation when their identities are revealed. They are then forced to share a living space and it becomes clear that they are competing for Loretta’s bar. Alex and Jeremiah couldn’t be more different. I really liked Alex’s charisma, confident attitude, and strong commitment to family. This preview really set the characters up in an untenable situation, where they will be forced to fight for what they believe in. I couldn't look away! After Hours on Milagro Street releases on July 12, 2022. Thank you so much to Angelina M. Lopez, Carina Press, and Netgalley for a free chapter sampler in exchange for honest feedback.

Such a cute and steamy read. I really like this book and now I can’t wait to check it out. I didn’t expect the steam would start right from the jump but I was definitely into it. The chemistry between the two MC’s was so obvious I had to keep reading. Will be keeping an eye out for this title.

Spice in the first chapter?! This book is going to be so hot. I can already see it being the talk ok booktok. I absolutely love Alex, everything about the way she is written. Such an absolute badass. Jeremiah is a human golden retriever and so adorable. Loved this preview! Will definitely be reading the full book.
