Releasing Nov 8th, 2016
Montlake


If only Lola Dunne had the timeand the courageshed write her novel, and maybe even start dating again. When her friend offers the use of her summer home overlooking Lake Haven, Lola sees the chance to focus on herself for a change, and she eagerly accepts.

Engineer Harry Westbrook is waiting for his ship to come in. But its not happening soon enough for his girlfriend, whos left him for goodagain. To nurse Harrys heartache, his pal extends an invite to his lake house in East Beach.

When it turns out that Harrys and Lolas friends are a divorcing, not-on-speaking-terms couple sparring over the same house, the strangers find themselves accidental (and reluctant) roommates for the summer. They agree to make the best of it, even posing as a couple to mingle among East Beachs well-heeled crowd. But the ruse is starting to feel realand romantic. Are they brave enough to reveal their feelings before the summer nights turn cold?








 Such a fun and sweet story.I really enjoy Suddenly Dating. Julia did an awesome job with the storyline and the characters.I loved how the story developed and the characters were realistic.

Lola and Harry were amazing, I love their chemistry. They seem like two completely opposites at first glance but the more I see them I could understand how good they were together!!

It was fast paced and enjoyable make me want to read more books by this author!!


Excerpt 

Chapter One 
New York City April
The first time Melissa broke up with Harry was on a Wednesday night, because Harry had come home later than hed  said he would. Okay,    a lot later. Late-late. But he couldnt help ithis crew had run into a problem installing a support beam under a bridge and it had taken a colossal effort by dozens of men to right that sinking ship.
When he walked into their little apartment, he knew he was in trouble. Melissa was sitting at the bistro table with an empty wine bottle before her and the dregs of said bottle in her glass. There was a plate of food in Harrys spot: congealed spaghetti and something else he didnt want to examine too closely. Im sorry
I dont want to hear it, she snapped with a queenly flick of her wrist. Im done.
Done. What did that mean, exactly? For the evening? With him? Harry wanted to ask, but as he was a veteran of this relationship, he knew better than to seek clarification when that much wine obviously had been drunk.
Melissas blue eyes narrowed; she knew he didnt know what she meant. She came to her feet. Clumsily. And swaying a little when she pushed her long dark hair back over her shoulder. She had on a very short skirt and heels that made her look hot, and, God, Harry wished hed made it home on time.
Ive had it with you, Harry. Youre always late. You come in looking like some Game of Thrones character with your shaggy hair and your dirty clothes, she said, gesturing wildly in his direction.
Well . . . I work in bridge construction, he said calmly. Its kind of a dirty job. I apologize for my hair, but you know that I wear a hard hat most of the day.
So you cant get a haircut? she cried, and pitched forward, catch- ing herself on the table.
This was the first he knew that his hair was an issue. He dug in his pocket for a hair band and pulled it back into a short tail.
Oh, yeah, that works, she snapped. Heres the thing, Harry. You do whatever you want, she sang, casting her arm wide, and then you expect me to sit here and wait with a dinner I slaved over.
Here they went with the same sort of argument theyd been having a lot lately. I dont expect you to wait, Melissa. Thats why I told you to go ahead without me, he reminded her. And, to be fair, its spaghetti.
Fire leapt into her blue eyes.
Not that I dont appreciate it, he hastily added. Jesus, he didnt want to do this right now. He was tired, he was hungry, and that damn support beam was going to cost him more money he didnt have.
