“This intense book gave me all the feels! The Smoke Series are must-read romance.” New York Times bestselling author, Laurelin Paige
The Smoke Series, an all-new standalone contemporary romance series which includes Juniper Smoke, Kyle & Juniper, and Finding Juniper are all now live!
In an age of casual hook-ups, can love survive the test of time?
Juniper and Kyle meet when she is dangling forty feet from a museum scaffolding.
Juniper Mills is a straitlaced but sassy curator at a History Museum. Raised by her mother to hate men, she worries she’ll die a frigid scholar in a musty house with an army of cats and a lake of books.
Kyle Paxton is an intense and intimidating inventor of a successful micro camera from San Francisco. He schedules dating like his work – with robotic precision. This helps him cope with the dark memories of his ex-girlfriend, who still haunts him. Not looking for love, he only hooks up with Amazonian models.
When he joins the museum board, Juniper falls for him. She wants him but knows it’s going to be as hard as catching the ocean in a teacup. Juniper becomes Kyle’s obsession, but the tragic secrets of his past cloud his feelings.
Juniper manages to knock Kyle’s world off its axis and their galaxies collide in this very unfairy tale. But can they overcome their differences and stop a hateful and vindictive person from tearing them apart?
Juniper Smoke is a smoking hot read with fun twists, dark secrets, and edge-of-your-seat drama. Nothing is as it seems and no one behaves as you would expect.

NICUnurse’s Review of Juniper Smoke by Sadia Ash
I heard a lot of chatter in our little romance book world, so I thought I would see what all the fuss was about. And I’ll admit right here and now that I’m kind of torn. Hang with me for a minute, would ya?
The writing was great. World-building was great, too. And for the most part, character development was good, as well. The story grabbed me from the beginning, and for a good part of the book, I didn’t want to put it down. But here’s where it just didn’t hit the mark for me. By about 3/4 of the way through the book, there seemed to be SO much back and forth on both Kyle’s & Juniper’s parts that eventually, the story lost its hold on me. Maybe it’s because I have SO much going on in my personal and professional lives right now that I kind of wanted it to be less can’t make up their minds. Or maybe it’s because I have a teen and a LOT of drama going on around my house these days. But the constant back and forth seemed more of a drain than a pull by the end of the book. And I really wanted to WANT to dive into the next 2 books. But at this point, I kind of don’t want to if the next 2 books are going to be like this. It just felt more like a soap opera than a romance series to me.
Now, if you love long, drawn-out drama, then this series will absolutely be something for you to grab and devour right now. But for now, I’m going to have to put the other 2 books on the back burner.
NICUnurse’s Rating: I’m only going to give my rating for this book, but one day, I hope to review the entire series, though. This book was only a 3.5-propeller book for me. I really, really, really had hoped it would be a lot more.
Everyone has a story to tell. I am humbled when anyone – a stranger, friend or loved one – reads what I wrote. So, thank you!
