Review – Feisty by Julia Kent


Feisty; Do-Over #3 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Julia Kent

Review Rating:



Feisty contains laughter, friendship and ultimately a great love story, this book in the series does contain some heavy issues that are very pertinent in our headlines today.

Fiona “Feisty” works at a preschool and right at the beginning of the story an angry father shows up with a gun. While no one is seriously injured, thankfully, Chris “Fletch” appears on the scene, as one of the paramedics to the rescue. Feisty isn’t exactly happy to see Fletch again, as she dropped kicked him back in the 7th grade when he tried to kiss her. Her embarrassment over the nickname he gave her has stuck like glue ever since and she’s done a lot of avoiding him because of it.

This leads to our next heavy topic, that I believe Julia covered extremely well, the issue of when no means no at any age. It’s been years since Fiona and Chris have spent any sort of time together, mostly because she has been avoiding him like the plague, but the universe now has other plans and keeps putting them together, this finally brings them to the long overdue discussion of first an apology and second boundaries. This part is very well written and still keeps the story moving along.

Even with heavy topics throughout the book, Feisty clips along at a quick pace, the chemistry between them is strong, but it is a very slow burn.

This is the third book in the Do-Over series, but can be read as a standalone.

Fiona “Feisty” Gaskill gets her chance at love, with another second-chance romance with Chris “Fletch” Fletcher— this one the ultimate “enemies to lovers” story, with a twist.

The guy I drop-kicked in seventh grade cannot be my blind date. The guy who earned me this infernal nickname.

That’s right.


It was bad enough that last month all my old kickboxing training came in handy when a disgruntled noncustodial dad invaded my preschool class and tried to take one of my kids without permission.

That ended with news coverage of the closed-circuit video that parents saw in real time as I beat him up and pinned his neck to the ground while waiting for police to respond.

We won’t mention the part where I thrust my arm into the air in a power stance and, uh…


Hey. HEY! Don’t judge me. I protected those kids. And the kid most in danger was Fletch’s nephew.

The same Fletch who just now noticed me sitting here.

Being noticed is bad.

Being his dating app match is even worse.


Because no matter how hard I’ve tried to avoid him since high school, every time I see him I have the same reaction.

I wish I’d never kicked him.

I wish, instead, that I’d let him kiss me.

Which it looks like he’s trying to do.

Right now.

Feisty releases on January 28, with a simultaneous audiobook

Release Day/New Release

New Release – Inappropriate by Vi Keeland


A Standalone Contemporary Romance

#1 New York Times Bestselling Author Vi Keeland


Terminated for inappropriate behavior.

I couldn’t believe the letter in my hands.

Nine years.  Nine damn years I’d worked my butt off for one of the largest
companies in America, and I was fired with a form letter when I returned home from a week in Aruba.

All because of a video taken when I was on vacation with my friends—a private video made on my private time. Or so I thought…

Pissed off, I cracked open a bottle of wine and wrote my own letter to the gazillionaire CEO telling him what I thought of his company and its practices.

I didn’t think he’d actually respond.

I certainly never thought I’d suddenly become pen pals with the rich jerk.

Eventually, he realized I’d been wronged and made sure I got my job back.

Only…it wasn’t the only thing Grant Lexington wanted to do for me.

But there was no way I was getting involved with my boss’s boss’s boss. Even if he was ridiculously gorgeous, confident, and charming.

It would be completely wrong, inappropriate even.

Sort of like the video that got me into trouble to begin with.

Two wrongs don’t make a right.

But sometimes it’s twice as fun.

Cover Reveal – Kiss My Cupcake by Helena Hunting

KMC - CR banner.jpg

Blaire Calloway has planned every Instagram-worthy moment of her cupcake and cocktails shop launch down to the tiniest detail. What she didn’t plan on? Ronan Knight and his old-school sports bar next door opening on the very same day.

Kiss My Cupcake, an all-new standalone romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting is releasing August 11th, and we have the irresistible cover!



Blaire Calloway has planned every Instagram-worthy moment of her cupcake and cocktails shop launch down to the tiniest detail. What she didn’t plan on? Ronan Knight and his old-school sports bar next door opening on the very same day. He may be super swoony, but Blaire hasn’t spent years obsessing over buttercream and bourbon to have him ruin her chance at success.

From ax throwing (his place) to frosting contests (hers), Blaire and Ronan are constantly trying to one-up each other in a battle to win new customers. But with every clash, there’s also an undeniable chemistry. When an even bigger threat to their business comes to town, they’re forced to call a temporary time-out on their own war and work together. And the more time Blaire spends getting to know the real Ronan, the more she wonders if it’s possible to have her cupcake and eat it too.
