Exclusive Cover Reveal & ARC Giveaway: Top Shelf by Allison Temple

Hi! I am super excited to share the cover for Allison Temple’s upcoming Top Shelf with you today! Top Shelf is the first book in her new Seacroft series and releases on May 20th – so mark your calendars!

Below you’ll find the blurb and of course the gorgeous cover! Also don’t forget to check out the giveaway for an ARC of it!


Martin is a ghost. Well, not really, but he might as well be. Job gone, home gone, self-respect gone, and no one even seems to notice. The only person who really sees him is Seb, the artist who lives above the used bookstore.

Seb haunts the edges of Seacroft in search of beauty. He knows how to excavate the hidden value in abandoned things—whether it’s in the pages of forgotten books or in Martin’s stuttering attempts to rebuild his life—and transform them into works of art.

Two lost souls, Seb and Martin discover the strength they need to face eccentric townies and their dysfunctional families together. But as friendship sparks toward something more, neither man wants to risk what they’ve only just found. It takes two to fall in love, but it will take the whole community to bring their beauty to life.

Top Shelf is an 81k slow burn friends-to-lovers MM romance. It features an anxious professor, a drama queen artist, a bookstore that might be haunted, and a full-blown heart-eyes HEA.

Coming May 20, 2019 on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited.

Allison Temple has been a writer since the second grade, when she wrote a short story about a girl and her horse. Her grandmother typed it out and said she’d never seen so many quotation marks from a seven-year-old before. Allison took that as a challenge and has tried to break that record in all the stories she’s taken on since then. It’s good to have goals, right?

Allison lives in Toronto with her very patient husband and the world’s neediest cat. She tries to split her free time between writing, stage management, and traveling anywhere that has good wine. Tragically, this leaves no time to clean the house.
