Hey, romance addicts. I am thrilled that the friends-to-lover, boy-next-door romance, The Groom was selected for the 2021 Fofky’s Readers Choice Award.
Just when he starts to get his act together, Mansur wakes to an empty bed and a crying baby. His wife leaves him with their infant on the day he starts a new job. Uneasy and alone, he looks across the street to Faiza for help. As he relies on their long friendship, desires for the beautiful hijabi firefighter reawaken within him.
Faiza can’t deny Mansur, even though she should. Her heart broke when he married another woman. She got herself together and moved on. Now, he is back in their childhood neighborhood and her life. She knows they’re just friends, but she can’t help longing for more.
Family and culture kept them apart when young, but Mansur won’t allow interference from anyone or anything. He is determined to make Faiza more than just a friend.
The Groom is a boy-next-door romance novella full of passion, a little steam, and a ★Muslim alpha★ who proves that he is no longer a little boy.
