Art professor Anita Delgado spends eleven months of the year working. July is her month to cut loose, paint, and pick a guy to make the summer memorable. But this year she isn’t in a tropical location with an exotic man like she'd planned. She’s stuck in small-town USA dealing with a lake house she doesn’t want, inherited from a grandmother she never knew. A summer fling might be the only thing to get her through the next few weeks.

Salvage specialist Noah Colburn is running for mayor. If he doesn’t, an absolute idiot is going to ruin his beloved town. So he’s stepping up. It’s what he does—with his teenage daughters, with the family business, and now with Lakeside. But when the newest resident of the town asks him to renovate her grandmother’s house—and have a four-week fling —he’s tempted. Tempted to step out of the mold and take just one thing for himself. But the gossip mill in the town is notorious.

Anita’s learning it’s hard to have a fling when the town follows your every move, and it’s even harder when the July guy makes it clear one month is never going to be enough…

There was something so endearing about Natasha Moore’s The July Guy where a man deeply rooted in his small hometown is convinced to have a one month fling with a city woman in town to renovate and sell her late grandmother’s home. This story has many layers making it full and rich and absolutely a d ...more

The July Guy is a quick, feel-good read. I enjoyed the story line, and the dynamic between Anita and Noah was pulled off in an exceptional way. I love books where what tends to be a characteristic given to one gender is a given to the other gender, Mrs. Moore wrote it very well.
The writing style is ...more

I started this book and then put it down. Coming back to it a few months later I was able to get into the story better. Anita Delgado has inherited a home from a grandmother whom she thought had passed away. Going to a house and a town where people knew her mother, as well as her father, also become ...more

I lost my heart to Lakeside and this wonderful mature-but-playful love story! Natasha Moore creates strong, confident characters who know their own minds, but with just enough vulnerability to make their journeys believable and worth rooting for. Sexy and satisfying!

By Badass Lioness December 16, 2018

From the cover that accurately reflected the description of the heroine and hero to “This studio is for you, Anita. She dropped to her knees and cried.” the author had me. I was enthralled that Anita was 45, a painter, and had a month long vacation fling with a guy every July for almost 20 years in ...more

Anita is a Art Professor and she spends July at a new location around the world each year to recharge her batteries ... with a fling! But this July she has to spend it at the home she inherited from her grandmother. When she meets the sexy handyman working on the house next door ... she knows he's g ...more

An interesting premise in this one. A woman, Anita Delgado, works hard eleven months out of the year but every July she finds time to play just as hard. Different locale, different guy, lots of fun sexy times with absolutely no strings. This July she finds herself in small town America dealing with ...more

I received an ARC of the July Guy from a giveaway on the Seasoned Romance Facebook page. This was my first Natasha Moore novel and it won't be my last! I really enjoyed the plot of Anita and Noah's story with a role reversal found in traditional romance novels. Anita travels the world and has light- ...more

Very nice story line about a professor who doesn't think she'll ever get married and finds a guy every July on her holiday to spend time with (or more). This is about the latest guy she found and one she isn't sure if she wants to let go ... Nice story ...more

Original well written seasoned romance

The July Guy is the first book I've read by Natasha Moote and I am so happy I have it a try. I was really impressed that Anita and Noah were in their mid 40s as I think that population is just not well represented in the romance genre. I admit I didn't immediat ...more
