The Hoemance Book Club’s October 2022 Read: Only When It’s Us by Chloe Liese

Hey everyone, welcome or welcome back to my blog! Back in 2021 Rebecca and I started The Hoemance Book Club and we’ve absolutely loved discussing romance books with our book club every month with everyone on our Discord! We’ve read so many exciting romances lately and we can’t to read some new favourites this year too! Earlier this year we read some real bangers like Weather Girl, Book Lovers and Fake It Till You Bake It and last month we read The Bodyguard by Katherine Center.

October is Disability Awareness month in the US so this month we’re reading a romance that features a main character with a disability. His name is Ryder and he’s deaf! This month we’re reading Only When It’s Us by Chloe Liese. This book has been out for a couple of years now and is pretty popular so you should be able to find a copy pretty easily!

Find out more about this month’s book here ↓  & find our catalogue of past books here.

Prepare for an emotional rollercoaster brimming with laughter, tears, and slow-burn sexiness in this new adult romance that tackles the vulnerability of love with humor and heart.

Ever since she sat next to me in class and gave me death eyes, Willa Sutter’s been on my shit list. Why she hates me, I don’t know. What I do know is that Willa is the kind of chaos I don’t need in my tidy life. She’s the next generation of women’s soccer. Wild hair, wilder eyes. Bee-stung lips that should be illegal. And a temper that makes the devil seem friendly.
She’s a thorn in my side, a menacing, cantankerous, pain-in-the-ass who’s turned our Business Mathematics course into a goddamn gladiator arena. I’ll leave this war zone unscathed, coming out on top…And if I have my way with that crazy-haired, ball-busting hellion, that will be in more than one sense of the word.

Rather than give me the lecture notes I missed like every other instructor I’ve had, my asshole professor tells me to get them from the silent, surly flannel-wearing mountain man sitting next to me in class. Well, I tried. And what did I get from Ryder Bergman? Ignored. What a complete lumbersexual neanderthal. Mangy beard and mangier hair. Frayed ball cap that hides his eyes. And a stubborn refusal to acknowledge my existence.

I’ve battled men before, but with Ryder, it’s war. I’ll get those notes and crack that Sasquatch nut if it’s the last thing I do, then I’ll have him at my mercy. Victory will have never tasted so sweet.
