Cover Re-design Reveal: Caught Up In Us and Pretending He’s Mine by Lauren Blakely

I’m so thrilled to share with you the updated covers of Caught Up In Us and Pretending He’s Mine by Lauren Blakely!!! Here’s a note from her explaining the re-dos.

Caught Up in Us and Pretending He’s Mine are my first two books, and while I have great affection for the original covers and the way readers responded to those two romances, I wanted the covers to better match the look of the rest of my books. I began working with the Sarah Hansen at Okay Creations starting with Trophy Husband and she went on to also design Playing With Her Heart’s cover as well as my No Regrets series. I love the work she did on those books, and while she was busy creating the cover for my next novel, Night After Night (releasing in May!), I asked Helen Williams at All Booked Out to do a cover makeover for Caught Up in Us and Pretending He’s Mine so that those could match Playing With Her Heart’s look. Helen does amazing work and has done many graphics for me and other book covers, so I knew she would be able to do a brilliant redo — she also redid the covers in only one weekend!! It was a fast turnaround and I am thrilled with the new looks, and especially how well all the books play together now. And to celebrate the redesign as well as the one-year anniversary of Pretending He’s Mine this month, I will be offering Pretending He’s Mine for free on iBooks starting today and through the weekend! (It’s possible Amazon might price match the free offering, but I can’t guarantee what Amazon will do so if you want to read it for free, snag it on iBooks!)

Caught Up In Us

A second chance at first love…

Five years ago, Kat Harper fell into a dizzying summer romance with her brother’s best friend Bryan. It was a mad, crazy love full of kisses all through the night — but he broke her heart and she had to move on. Five years later, Kat is finishing her graduate degree and building her business as a jewelry designer, when Bryan, head of his own successful company, walks back into her life. Bryan has been assigned to Kat as her new business mentor and the rules are clear. No hanky panky permitted. Kat can handle that because she’s totally over him… right? Except, he still makes her laugh, and he remembers all the things she likes. Not to mention that he’s even more handsome now than he was then. Then there’s the spark between them — the simply undeniable chemistry, and the tender ways he shows he still cares for her. Can they resist each other the second time around or will first love trump all?

Caught Up In Us is the first book in the New York Times and USA Today bestselling Caught Up In Love series, that includes Pretending He’s Mine, Playing With Her Heart and Trophy Husband. (While each book can be read as a standalone, you’ll likely enjoy the other books too.)

Pretending He’s Mine

“The one you like best. That’s my favorite position. My favorite thing is making you feel good.” 

Reeve Larkin needs a job. Sure, the actor is talented and gorgeous in that dreamy, broody sort of way that makes all the women swoon. But he lost out on a part in a big movie, and now his day job hours have been slashed too. What’s a handsome young thing in need of a role to do? Sign up to be the fake fiancé of the sexy and shrewd casting director Sutton Brenner, who must appear temporarily attached if she’s to land a coveted gig casting a red-hot film. So Sutton strikes a pact with Reeve to play the role of her fiance until she closes the deal. The trouble is – she’s sexy-as-hell and damn near irresistible to him. And he’s not only a great guy, but also the best dirty talker she’s ever met. It doesn’t take long for their pretend love affair to heat up, especially after that toe-curling night in the balcony of the Broadway theater. And that scorching afternoon in the stacks of the New York Public Library. 

A red-hot love affair. An intense connection. But as the lines between make-believe and matters of the heart blur, can two people working in the world of acting fake it til they make it?
