“Herrera serves up high heat, serious social commentary, and laughs in perfect measure.” —Book Riot

No one should have to choose between love and justice

Haitian-born professor and activist Patrice Denis is not here for anything that will veer him off the path he’s worked so hard for. One particularly dangerous distraction: Easton Archer. The Assistant District Attorney who last summer gave Patrice some of the most intense nights of his life, and still makes him all but forget they’re from two completely different worlds.

All-around golden boy Easton forged his own path to success, choosing public service over the comforts of his family’s wealth. With local law enforcement unfairly targeting young men of color, and his career—and conscience—on the line, now is hardly the time to be thirsting after Patrice again. Even if those nights have turned into so much more.

For the first time, Patrice is tempted to open up and embrace the happiness he’s always denied himself. But as tensions between the community and the sheriff’s office grow by the day, Easton’s personal and professional lives collide. And when the issue at hand hits closer to home than either could imagine, they’ll have to work to forge a path forward...together.

"Herrera delicately weaves a difficult romance around the serious topics of institutional racism, privilege, and social responsibility." --Publishers Weekly

"Adriana Herrera writes family--all kinds of family--better than anyone else writing today. American Love Story is a sweet and sexy slow burn and I devoured it." --Cat Sebastian, author of The Soldier's Scoundrel

"The story is incisive and modern, navigating the complexities of privilege, purpose and power, all while exploring intense passion." --The Washington Post

"Herrera returns to her Dreamers series with a sexy romance that explores stereotypes and racial injustice." --Library Journal

"It's a rare romance that ends with the MCs aware that the work on their relationship is really only just starting, but that just shows the intelligence of this one." --KJ Charles, bestelling author of A Seditious Affair

"Clear-eyed and unflinchingly honest, Herrera's American Love Story is forward-thinking, soothsaying romance. A bellwether story giving us hope for what romance is capable of in the future, and in Herrera's hands, capable of right now. This book is at once effortless social commentary that doesn't preach and swoony romance that doesn't skimp on the heat and chemistry boiling between the characters. Herrera continues to prove that she is a fresh voiceushering in the kind of inclusive storytelling this genre so desperately needs." --RITA(R) Award-winning author Kennedy Ryan

"Herrera builds a diverse narrative where prejudice and fear are immediately present alongside the passion and angst at the heart of Patrice and Easton's relationship." --BookTrib

"American Love Story is worth swooning over as is Herrera's ability to tackle such heavy subjects with such responsibility and grace." --Love in Panels

"American Love Story is complex and romantic while remaining grounded in reality; the romance between two men from very different worlds is intense, angsty and tender and the author tackles some difficult topics in the course of the story, taking a long, hard look at the immigrant experience in the US." --All About Romance

"Herrera isn't afraid to tackle uncomfortable topics and manages to pair this with a love story you can't help but root for. Patrice and Easton's story is one I think everyone should read." --Queer Books Unbound

"Herrera serves up high heat, serious social commentary, and laughs in perfect measure." --Book Riot
