Reviews:

“A fast-paced and empowering thrill ride guaranteed to get your blood pumping.”―Caleb Roehrig, author of The Fell of Dark

“The type of book that you just have to devour […] The Lost Girls is an absorbing and alluring tale that explores female rage, solidarity, and friendship. It’s a darkly comic sapphic vampire romance that will make you fall in love.”The Nerd Daily

“With its fresh reinvention of vampire lore, this casually gory novel offers a unique take on the feminist revenge narrative. A story of girl power triumphant, it finds its core strength in female friendship […]”BCCB

“An undead romp recommended for any collection.”Booklist

Exhilarating high-stakes action with plenty of bite.”Kirkus Reviews

Reviews:

“Wow! Romantic comedy doesn’t get much better than this! Witty, sexy, and smart, Sonia Hartl has written a truly laugh-out-loud story that you won’t be able to put down.”Lyssa Kay Adams, bestselling author of the Bromance Book Club series

“An absolute treasure. I would read a million books about Heartbreak for Hire’s charming, relatable employees and all the clever ways they punish people who totally deserve it. This book is both a breath of fresh air and a ray of sunshine.”Rosie Danan, author of The Roommate

“Brimming with witty banter, romantic hijinks, and an empowering, take-charge message that made me want to cheer, Heartbreak for Hire is a hilarious, heartfelt romp—served spicy hot!” Angie Hockman, author of Shipped

“I loved every page of this refreshingly modern battle of the sexes. Heartbreak for Hire shimmers with whip-smart dialogue, pitch-perfect humor, and burn-you-up steam. Sonia Hartl is a fierce, fearless new voice in romance.”Rachel Lynn Solomon, bestselling author of The Ex Talk

“Sonia Hartl’s adult debut, HEARTBREAK FOR HIRE, showcases her trademark killer sense of humor. If you loved the film Heartbreakers, you’ll fall head over heels for this super sexy, hate-to-love romance. You’ll devour it in one sitting.”Roselle Lim, author of Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck and Fortune and Vanessa Yu’s Magical Paris Tea Shop 

“A Sonia Hartl book always comes with the promise of humor and heart—and her adult debut is no exception. Heartbreak for Hire is about trying to escape the past, and that overpowering instinct to protect oneself from getting hurt again. More importantly, it’s about just what can happen when you let that protective instinct go. Laugh-out-loud funny and fan-yourself sexy, this book is an absolute delight!”Annette Christie, author of The Rehearsals

“fun and flirty…fans of Lyssa Kay Adams and Christina Lauren are likely to enjoy the sexy hero and nonstop banter.”Publishers Weekly

“The constant push-and-pull between the pair is enticing, and their sexy-steam level runs hot. The concept of being a Heartbreaker is interesting and leads to some satisfying takedown scenes…this unique and captivating tale will please readers.”Booklist

“Perfect for: fans of Well Met, Beach Read, and Party of Two”Country Living

“Hartl pens a sweet and sexy contemporary romance…This fast-paced novel features the right amount of humor and sass to offset how much Brinkley has been hurt by the actions of her ex and her mother. A first pick for libraries where contemporary romance is popular.”Library Journal

“It’s a rom-com with an acidic twist in Sonia Hartl’s latest.”Life Savvy

“If Charlie’s Angels were actually a breakup agency, you’ve already got a partial sense of Hartl’s charming, hilarious, and devastatingly hot adult romance debut…Hartl skillfully manages to merge a romance with a story of learning to love and prioritize one’s self, all while tackling relatable workplace issues head-on, and the end result is a rom-com that really needs the adaptation treatment ASAP.”Vulture

Reviews:

“The sweet, sex-positive romance and the way people in this town take care of one another, across generations, make this a winner.”Booklist

“Swoonworthy.”―Publisher’s Weekly

“A touching and very human perspective on internet infamy: Click on this one.”―Kirkus Reviews

 

Have a Little Faith in Me

Reviews:

“This book reminded me why I fell in love with YA. Have a Little Faith in Me is both hilarious and poignant, with an unforgettable cast of characters led by fierce but vulnerable CeCe. She asks all the questions about relationships and sexuality I kept locked in my mind as a teen, and her desire for answers broke my heart and then filled it up. An immediate favorite.” – Rachel Lynn Solomon author of You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone and Our Year of Maybe

“A true celebration of girls―their bravery, their flaws, their hearts, and the sisterhood that binds them. Have A Little Faith in Me is a thoughtful, no-holds-barred look at sex, consent, and the healing power of female friendship.” – Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, author of Firsts and Last Girl Lied To

“[A] romantic comedy that explores feminism and comprehensive sex education against the backdrop of a conservative religious summer camp. First-time author Sonia Hartl tackles all of these topics and more with finesse―always candid, always open-minded and very rarely heavy-handed… Hartl’s debut is a powerful read for teens who are beginning to explore romantic relationships and sexuality.” ―BookPage, starred review

“[A] thoughtful story of consent, sexual education, friendship, and honest communication.” Kirkus Reviews

“Quick-paced, well written friends-to-lovers romance… complete with pranks, hilarious banter, and teenage angst.”―School Library Journal

“Let me count the ways I adored this debut… the book serves as sort of ‘emotional sex ed,’ teaching the important stuff about feelings and consent that even the most thorough class rarely covers.” Dahlia Adler, B&N Teens blog 

“This is a fun, standout story about self-examination, self-discovery, friendship, sex education, consent, and honesty.”―SLJ Teen Librarian Toolbox
