"Well paced, well-written, a romantic delight."
                               -Lori Wilde, New York Times bestselling author

The Garner brothers are poster boys for the ski resort town of Glory Junction, California. But as much as they love outdoor thrills, they know how to create indoor thrills, too . . .

Colt Garner thrives on adrenaline. As Glory Junction’s police chief and the co-owner of Garner Adventure, he knows where to find danger and excitement. Unfortunately his new neighbor, fussy, transplanted city girl Delaney Scott, is anything but a thrill, even if she is as gorgeously curved as a killer ski slope. They have nothing in common but a shared driveway they’re arguing over . . . and a mutual attraction neither of them can fight.

Starting over was not in designer Delaney’s plans. But now that her rotten ex has walked away with the rights to her brand, she needs to reinvent herself, and fast. It’s not easy with bold, brash Colt next door, too handsome for his own good, and, she’s sure, too unreliable for hers. But as small town life throws them together again and again, Colt and Delaney find that simple romance may be the most exhilarating gamble of all . . .

Praise For Need You (The Garner Brothers #1)

“Finz third Garner Brothers contemporary doesn’t skimp on lively charm. Energetic prose meets quick wit…What ensues is a twisty and infinitely diverting game of Win pursuing Darcy until she catches him. Romance fans will enjoy this fun, frothy tale.” —Publishers Weekly on Love You
“Engaging banter and realistic relational tension help Want You stand out from the host of small-town romances. Finz has created four confident, intriguing brothers whose friendly jabbing and straight talk reflect the deep respect they have for one another…Finz balances tense moments with charming family scenes and the sweet, mature relationship between Deb and TJ. Want You is another satisfying story in Finz’s warm-and-fuzzy romance series.” —Bookpage on Want You
“Easily read as a standalone, the second book in Finz’s Garner Brothers series slides its way into the heart with sizzling chemistry and small-town charm. TJ is in love with Deb, but Deb is in love with TJ’s brother, so their friendship is all kinds of complicated. Finz uses these complications (plus a few others) to ratchet up the sexual tension and…whew! The end result is a romance that’s difficult to put down. Deb is a nice mix of strengths and flaws that most women can relate to, and TJ is equally well-rounded and layered. It’s also nice to get to know TJ as a fully-drawn character after getting glimpses in the prequel novella and first book. Fans of the author’s Nugget series will love Glory Junction and the Garner brother just as much, if not more.” —RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars on Want You
“Sweet humor, well-defined and appealing characters, and just enough adventure sports and fashion detail make Finz’s print debut, and series launch, a delightful read.” —Library Journal on Need You
