I love this story.
Opposed Desires by Katherine McIntyre released at the beginning of November in the Contemporary Romance, LGBTQ+ genre.
Closet Romantic falling for the Hookup Queen? Never gonna happen… until one memorable vacation changes it all.
When it comes to women, Aubrey Moore believes in no-strings-attached hookups and keeping things simple. On her beach trip, her plan is clear—hit the bars and find single hotties. What she doesn’t bargain on is the phone call from her sister. Distraught, Aubrey would like to have a breakdown in private, but the one woman who’s never fallen for her slick lines takes her by surprise and blurs her simple rules.
The last thing owner of the Renegades bar, Selina Beckett, expects to see on vacation is Aubrey Moore in the middle of a personal crisis. Every time they meet, they clash—whether Aubrey was picking up women at Selina’s bar or flirting to try and get her attention. Selina’s not interested in flings, cheaters, or womanizers, so she’s made a point to avoid Aubrey at all costs. But this raw, real side of Aubrey convinces her to bend those rules, just a little.
The more Selina gets to know Aubrey beyond the bravado, the more she begins to fall. But each day closer to the end of their vacation marks a return to reality—one where this entanglement between them won’t survive.

Aubs blinked a couple of times when they exited because the lights inside the shop were so bright, but after a few paces, they made it off the boardwalk and onto the beach. The soothing salt breezes wrapped around her, sending a shiver down her spine. She’d tucked her bag of peanut butter cups in her purse, saving them for later. Selina, on the other hand, had already unwrapped one of the taffies from her crinkly bag. Aubs couldn’t help but watch as the woman lifted it to her lips and closed her eyes to savor the taste.
Great, she’d reached the point of sexual frustration that she was jealous of taffy.
“What’s the allure of the beach for you if you don’t like the water?” Aubrey asked, still curious. Every time she got to know more about Selina, she found herself surprised by what she learned.
“Have you seen this place?” Selina swept an arm out. “Just because I’m terrified of getting dragged away by the riptide doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy how intense and powerful all of this is. When it’s quiet on the beach, you can appreciate the roar of the surf and the way the moonlight glitters on the waves. The landscape is so different from the loud plastic pails, warring umbrellas, and tons of sunbathing bodies that comes with the beach during the day.”
Selina didn’t talk much, but when she did, she was mesmerizing. Aubrey balled one hand into a fist at her side, her nails biting into her palm in an effort to not reach out. She’d agreed to be good. She could be good. Until they’d kissed earlier, she’d been able to dance around the idea of anything physical, but they’d cracked open that shaken soda bottle, and now that need was a steady tap, tap, tap through her veins.
Selina glanced over at the fist she’d made. “Going to lob a punch at someone?”
“Oh, I always walk like this,” Aubs said, attempting to be casual, as if she wasn’t going crazy in Lustville over here.
Selina crooked a brow. “I’ve got a solution. Want to try some taffy? I bet I can change your mind.”
Aubrey snorted. “You’re going to have to try hard. I’ve tasted the stuff for years and never once has it had any allure.”
Selina finished the piece she chewed on and turned to face her. Before Aubs could click two and two together, Selina leaned in and pressed her lips to Aubrey’s. Her fingers swiped over Aubrey’s balled fist, loosening it as she kissed her. Once Aubs recovered from the surprise, she sank into the kiss. Selina’s warm tongue swept into her mouth, bringing with it the sweet tang of the saltwater taffy.
