Published: April 9, 2019
Format Read: Ebook via Netgalley
A sexy contemporary romance about what happens when a casual one-night stand becomes anything but casual.
JT Maxwell has it all . . . well, almost. He’s a US Marshal, looks like he belongs in an aftershave commercial, and he has tattoos—lots of tattoos.
Unfortunately, he’s also in debt up to his pretty blue eyeballs. Between that and his recent divorce, his sex life is nonexistent these days. But when free-spirited artist Anya Alves approaches him for a no-strings-attached one-night stand, things suddenly start looking up.
He never expects to see his sexy one-night stand again, and he definitely doesn’t expect to discover she’s spending the summer in his neighborhood . . . living right across the street.
Warning: This short and sexy standalone features an alpha hero who isn’t afraid of commitment and doesn’t hesitate when it’s time to put his heart on the line. Now all he has to do is convince his hot hookup that they deserve more than just one night together . . . they deserve forever.
About The Author
Liora Blake is a contemporary romance author who writes because it’s what she’s always wanted to do. She writes novels because she likes to tell the whole story, and she writes romance because a happily ever after is the best kind of story to tell.
When she isn’t writing, she’s likely baking cookies she shouldn’t eat, inventing elaborate excuses to avoid going for a run, or asking the nice barista to sell her another quad-shot Americano.
While you won’t find Liora active on any social media platforms, she loves hearing from readers via email.

It has been a while since I read an indie romance.. It was a breath of fresh air, and I definitely missed this genre a lot!
This is my first venture into the world of Liora Blake’s works and so far, I had some fun.
What Matters More tells the story of US Marshall named JT and an artist named Anya. It was all supposed be to casual, as both had recently got out of serious things. But it’s like the universe conspired to have them see each other again, so it turns to something more.
This couple has sizzling chemistry from the get go, and the steamy scenes are really really on the hotter end of the scale. But, the moments when they get real with each other are also quite precious. As they both got their hearts broken, seeing them get another chance and grabbing it is a very heartwarming experience.
All in all, I enjoyed Liora Blake’s writing style and the story was quick and easy to read. Excited to look at her backlist titles to explore her other works.
