“I LOVED both Cosy and Griffin! This story was ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!”- Kendall Ryan, New York Times bestselling author

Making Up an all-new laugh-out-loud romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting is available now!

Making Up_ebook

Cosy Felton is great at her job—she knows just how to handle the awkwardness that comes with working at an adult toy store. So when the hottest guy she’s ever seen walks into the shop looking completely overwhelmed, she’s more than happy to turn on the charm and help him purchase all of the items on his list.

Griffin Mills is using his business trip in Las Vegas as a chance to escape the broken pieces of his life in New York City. The last thing he wants is to be put in charge of buying gag gifts for his friend’s bachelor party. Despite being totally out of his element, and mortified by the whole experience, Griffin is pleasantly surprised when he finds himself attracted to the sales girl that helped him.

As skeptical as Cosy may be of Griffin’s motivations, there’s something about him that intrigues her. But sometimes what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas and when real life gets in the way, all bets are off. Filled with hilariously awkward situations and enough sexual chemistry to power Sin City, Making Up is the next standalone in the Shacking Up world.

Read Kay’s Review: Making Up

MAKING UP TEASER NINE AN.jpg

Excerpt:

We’re a couple of minutes away from my apartment, which also means we’re almost at the end of our date. End-of-date protocol often means a goodnight kiss.

And I’ve eaten onions. Lots of them. What the hell was I thinking? I feel around in my shorts pocket, hoping I have a random stick of gum. I find a tiny square packet and pull it out, along with an old tissue. I shove that back in my pocket and sigh with relief as I carefully open the Listerine Pocketpak. There’s one strip left. I pop it in my mouth, wishing I had water since my mouth is dry and I’m suddenly super nervous.

Griffin pulls up in front of my apartment building. I swallow a bunch of times, trying to get the strip to dissolve on my tongue and glance out the tinted window, seeing it from his perspective. I don’t live in a bad part of town, but I sure as hell wouldn’t leave this car sitting out here for any length of time unless I wanted it keyed or stripped down.

Griffin shifts into park and turns to me, one hand resting on the back of my seat near the headrest. “I had a great time, Cosy.”

“Me too, thanks for dinner.” I tried to fork over my share, but he was quick on the credit card draw.

“It was my pleasure.” He leans in the tiniest bit, a nonverbal cue that he’s going in for a kiss.

I mirror the movement, giving him the go ahead. My stomach flutters in anticipation. I exhale slowly through my nose. Even though the Listerine strip should be doing its job to mask the onions, I don’t want to ruin the moment by breathing that in his face.

His fingertips skim my jaw, and I close my eyes. And then his lips brush my cheek. I wait for them to move a couple of inches to the right, but after what feels like a lot of seconds—and is probably only a few—I crack a lid.

Griffin is still close, a wry smile on his lips and a smolder in his eyes.

“Seriously, that’s it? A kiss on the cheek?”

His smile widens, making his eyes crinkle at the corners. He’s nothing like the guys I usually end up on dates with. College boys don’t take things slow. If I were out with one of the guys from school, I’d be sitting in a beat-up Civic with some stupid music playing, and he’d be all over me with his tongue halfway down my throat, copping a feel.

“I thought all the onions you ate were the equivalent to garlic for vampires.” Griffin fingers my hair near my shoulder. I’d really like him to finger something else. Wait. I mean I’d like to feel his hands on me. Not in my pants. Okay, maybe I’d like them in my pants, but not after date number one.

“I wasn’t thinking, and I really like onions. A lot. In hindsight, it’s not a great date food. I feel kinda dumb. And I guess at first I wasn’t so sure about you. How was I supposed to know you’d actually be kind of normalish?”

“Normalish?”

“Well, you drink club soda on purpose, so you can’t be all there.” I tap his temple.

Griffin circles my wrist with his fingers and drops his head, lips brushing over my knuckle. “We can’t all be perfect, now, can we?”

“I suppose not, and perfect is boring.”

“That it is.” He hums against my skin, and I feel it through my entire body. “I would like to try that kiss again, if you’re still interested.”

New Release – Cupids Anonymous by Lila Monroe

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Cupids Anonymous
Author: Lila Monroe
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: July 16, 2019

BLURB

Fall in love with the sizzling new romantic comedy – perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella and Christina Lauren!

Rule #1 Don’t get hit by your own arrow.

I’m a professional Cyrano – minus the honking great nose. Need a love note, raunchy sext, or apology letter so epic that your other half will forget you hesitated a beat too long when you asked, ‘does this make me look fat?’? I’ve got you covered. But when my most frequent client, the annoyingly charming (or is that charmingly annoying?) Dylan Griffin comes to me with an unconventional new job, I discover that three little words can add up to one BIG complication…

Because Dylan doesn’t want help seducing another swimsuit model (for once in his life). He wants my help winning over his high-school crush (aka, his one true love) – and he’s prepared to make it worth my while. Throw in a summer Catskills trip that’s equal parts ‘Dirty Dancing’ and dirty-talking, and this Cupid is soon out of her depth – and head over heels with the last man I expected. But can I find the right words when it comes to my own heart? Or will this happily ever end in disaster?

Find out in the sparkling new romantic comedy from Lila Monroe!

Review – Perky by Julia Kent

45184722

Perky (Standalone within the Fluffy/Perky/Feisty world)
by Julia Kent (Author)

This review is from: July 11, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

Perky is a second chance, steamy romcom with a message about forgiveness and friendship.

Persephone (nicknamed Perky) is just a tad stubborn, but full of passion. Anytime her and Parker are in the same vicinity sparks ignite and clothes seem to vanish. They are one hot pair. The more you learn about the betrayal, you understand why she walked away and had to protect her heart.  If she had stayed it wouldn’t have taken much to give in to Parker and his talented tongue.

Parker is a smooth talking congressman, everyone loves him actually, but when he’s around Persephone he’s a sweet talking man (see where were your thoughts regarding Parker’s tongue 😘). The temperature rises and I can see why Persephone has a hard time keeping her hands (or lips) off the man. From the very beginning he starts out apologizing and reitorizes that he did not betray her. He stays true and he is a very likeable character.

Even though Perky can be read as a standalone, I will encourage those who haven’t read Fluffy to pick it up. First, because it’s a great book, second, because there are a lot of references I believe you will enjoy more if you are familiar with it. Like–Mallory is currently planning her wedding with Will, whom we meet in Fluffy. Persephone hasn’t seen Parker for five years since he currently resides in another state, but Will knows him, wasn’t aware of the falling out between them, but has invited Parker to stand in as one of his groomsmen. Hence, time for a second chance with the girl who ghosted him after a huge mess.

Persephone spends quite a bit of time talking about Parker’s arrival in town with her two best friends, Mallory and Fiona, which sometimes makes reading Perky like watching a “Sex and the City” episode. Both hilarious and highly entertaining.

When Parker and Persephone are on the page together, dim the lights, grab a glass of wine and prepare for the feels. The magic between them is like nothing I’ve ever read. 💖

Julia’s newest romantic comedy coming July 30!

Review – Making Up by Helena Hunting

Making Up; Shaking Up #4 (Series)
by Helena Hunting (Author)

This review is from: July 4, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

Helena Hunting is a one click author for me! I have been anxiously waiting for last Mills brother to arrive and Helena did not disappoint!! He is sweet, slightly shy, yet commanding, he is absolute perfection and the wait was worth it!

Griffin Mills is the eldest Mills brother, yet very different from his two younger outspoken and don’t mind living in the spotlight brothers. Griffin is a numbers man, the traveler, and planner. He has helped build the Mills Hotel chain by being calculated, meeting Cosy Felton while he was shopping for gag gifts in a sex toy shop was not his usual style, but something told him she was worth the risk. She may be a little younger than he is, but he’s willing to take a chance, at least see what their connection is while he’s working in Vegas. If it doesn’t work out then no harm, he’s only in town for a couple months and they can end things when he leaves. Seems easy enough, that is until things get complicated.

Cosy was finishing her degree and working part-time in a sex shop when a gorgeous man in a suit came walking in. Sure lots of people came in everyday, but there was something different about this particular suit. Griffin was shy, downright awkward about being in the store and Cosy couldn’t help but be drawn to him. Even against her better judgement and her self appointed rule about dating customers, she gives in…hello he’s gorgeous. What she doesn’t find out until weeks later is Griffin is more than just a suit, he’s a hotel mogul billionaire suit. What is he doing with her?

Griffin is a serial monogamist, a billionaire, and a decade older with just a bit more baggage than Cosy, can he really offer her what she needs as she’s just getting started with her life, which includes diner milkshakes, no long term commitments, and barely affording rent?

Cosy has yet to see the world, she never makes plans, when she wants to go somewhere she just hops in her car and heads in a direction. Can she really offer Griffin a life of perfection when he is used to having everything at his fingertips and she’s a hot mess?

Cosy and Griffin are so imperfectly perfectly matched, that once they get over their own imperfections they wake up and realize just how perfect they are for each other. This is just one of the reasons I adore Helena’s writing! Make sure you add this one to your TBR now!

Genre: Romantic Comedy

BLURB 

They call me the sugar whisperer.
Anything your tongue desires, I can bake it. Scones? Child’s play. Cupcakes? I’ll frost them so good you won’t know what hit you. Donuts? Please.
You’re talking to a master baker.
But there’s one egg I’ve never been able to crack.
My best friend.
Correction: My former best friend.
She’s the apple in my pie. The whip in my cream. The lemon in my meringue. The wish in my bone.
She’s the one who got away.
After ten years in the military, she’s back. She’s bruised and battered by life, but she’s back.
Except she’s not my second chance. She’s gone to the dark side.
Running a rival bakery in a town not big enough for two.
So now I have to decide—which do I want more?
My bakery?
Or the woman I never should’ve let go in the first place?

Master Baker is a deliciously fun friends-to-enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy featuring a smooth-talking baker, the one who got away, and a goat with more matchmaking tendencies than a nosy old grandpa. It stands alone with no cheating or cliffhangers.

Cupids Anonymous (Standalone)
by Lila Monroe (Author)

This review is from: July 2, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥

Fun, Fun, Fun! Hilarious, snarky, and LOL perfection! Poppy and Dylan were so fresh, everything executed with perfect timing which had me laughing or smiling through the entire book.

Poppy’s job is a professional purveyor of the written word, or a Cyrano. She can write up a love poem, a juicy text, a memorable wedding toast, or even an apology love note. Her latest job has her tied to Dylan, a chronic manwhore or as she lovingly refers to-

“my current gig as Dylan’s literary gigolo”.

Ah, yes, Dylan. A man who is and has currently and frequently used Poppy’s services because he likes the ladies and ladies like him. However, his current infatuation is proving to be a tougher nut to crack. An old high school crush. This requires Poppy’s services twenty-four/seven.

Plot twist…

Did someone say, douchey ex-boyfriend?

Poppy may know just what to say to win over someone else’s heart, but she doesn’t exactly know what to say when it comes to her own.

Dylan and Poppy both seem to be up a creek, in a canoe, with no paddle in this new situation. Who will come to their rescue? Maybe in this instance no words spoken are just better…let’s leave them alone in the canoe, floating up a creek…for some alone time.

Cupids Anonymous is so much fun, I dare you not to enjoy this ROTFLOL hilarious new romantic comedy!
