Loving Juniper by Sadia Ash
Release Date: June 4, 2019
Loving Juniper, the much anticipated final book in the bestselling Smoke Series by Sadia Ash.
“To travel around in a circle and come back to the same place you started can be either a source of failure or a source of discovery. It depends on what you are looking for. A year ago, I left this museum to travel outside the circle, and now I was back in its fold. And what I had been looking for ended up being right back here…at home,” says Juniper Mills.
For Kyle Paxton, everything comes full circle in a strange sort of synergy as the lost love he has been trying to find for two years is finally in front of him.
What happens when Juniper comes back home after a year of living her dream job in London and Ireland as a Celtic curator?
This is Juniper and Kyle’s final love note. An extended epilogue to the epic love story that began in Ann Arbor with Juniper Smoke, and now concluded in Loving Juniper in San Francisco. After hundreds of days apart over thousands of miles, will Juniper and Kyle finally find journey’s end?

“Now,” Kyle stated, standing up. “I have some very important business to do.” Bending over, I started stacking the plates to hide my disappointment that he would be working again.
Kyle snatched the dishes out of my hands and put them down. He grabbed my hand and began to lead me out of the patio…and into the living room. There, he pressed me flush against the wall to wall windows and stared into my eyes. “June-Bug,” he said, so softly that I thought it was my imagination. “My business is with you.”
“As I don’t work with you, I have no business with you.”
“I’m afraid that it’s a very serious matter…you will need to make it your business.”
“Serious or not, your fetish for bringing business into our bedroom needs to stop.”
“Have I told you how cute you look in that dress?”
I was wearing the new wrap dress I’d bought from Aurora James, during our New York trip. Decked in stripes of wine red, salmon, periwinkle, and navy blue, it had a cute bodice and a clingy skirt. Feeling sexy in the way the sheer chiffon clung to my figure, I eased away from him and lifted one corner of the belted wrap-around. “See. It’s a marvel of technology.”
Readily taking the belt, he tugged at it until the dress fell open. “Open sesame. That is my favorite dress of all.” Seeing my Agent Provocateur nude and sugar pink lingerie embroidered on an invisible net base, Kyle gasped. “Why, a present for me? You shouldn’t have.”
With a soft laugh, I dragged his neck closer to me, bringing his lips firmly onto mine. I kissed him with all the pent-up pain and uncertainty of the past week until it flooded with just longing and longing only. My hands went to the back of his neck, sliding up through his hair. I released his mouth and whispered against his ears. “I love you.”
He didn’t respond. Instead, he caught my mouth again, his hands slipping off my dress and, seizing my hips, he lifted me up until my legs were laced around his back. Carrying me, he walked around the living room and took me up the stairs, still kissing me somehow. I hissed and leaned back, letting the electricity between us rise and rise until it consumed us, taking us to places we’d traveled before, but could never tire of…
Everyone has a story to tell. I am humbled when anyone—a stranger, friend or loved one—reads what I wrote. So, thank you!

The love story of Juniper and Kyle continues and after all their trials and tribulations it may finally be their time. Kyle was not only willing to allow Juniper to finish her work in Ireland, but he encouraged her. They both realize that they are soulmates and belong together, but their journey isn’t finished yet.
The evolution of these characters over the course of this series is inspiring. Juniper makes Kyle want to be a better man and he has given her his whole heart. Juniper still has her moments of low confidence, but Kyle is there to support her and show her that she is perfect the way she is and all he needs.
They are both such compelling and complex characters and this book was a fitting end to this wonderful series.
