Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Coralee and Carrie are a flawless writing duo extraordinaire! Hat Trick is brilliantly funny, charmingly witty, and full of hot, sweaty hockey players – a hat trick of awesome reading!

Peyton is looking to restart her life after her boyfriend cheats on her. She needs a new job, a place to live, and of course to wash her cheating ex right out of her life. It’s easier said than done when she works in the same industry, meaning her life revolves around hockey and her ex is a hockey player, but upon the precipice of gaining her life back Peyton may jump off the deep end for a hot second. That hot mess moment might involve a few hot hockey players that skate for a rival team she was recently hired at…oh, and to top off the crazy mess of her life, she is not supposed to fraternize with the players. Hello dumpster, meet fire.

Hat Trick is funny and completely engaging in how Peyton deals with the new relationships revolving around Joni, Noah, and Hatch (relationships that she is 100% supposed to keep platonic). Each man is different and while all are on the same team, each has a completely different experience involving Peyton.

It is difficult to pinpoint who Peyton will fall for by the end while she spends time with each man in completely different ways; whether it is doing work related things, just hanging out, or holding back when trying not to kill one of them.

Hat Trick is a romp-roaring good time that is impossible to put down. Don’t miss it!

Synopsis:

My hockey star boyfriend cheated on me with not one, but THREE puck bunnies. In. The. Same. Night.

Hat Trick, Motherpucker.

I was mad, okay? Furious. I gave up the career of my dreams for him and how did he repay me? I just wanted to make him hurt as much as he hurt me. So, I slept with a couple hockey stars of my own. From a rival team. Oops. The best cure for a broken heart is an orgasm.

Joni, Noah, and Hatch eased the sting of my cheating ex. It was the perfect rebound no-strings-attached arrangement. Now I’ve got three hockey players comparing sticks.

One is nothing but a hookup. One is a stage-five clinger. One is trying to get me fired from my new job.

And…H E double hockey sticks, one of them could possibly be the love of my life.

This is one Hat Trick to remember.

A single dad, a model, and a comedian walk into a bar… They’re all Owen Brodie.

It’s only funny if you aren’t the hilarious struggling comedian who has been hired to be his son’s nanny for the stand-up tour.

Dear Ms. Hogan,

I’m emailing to offer you the job as my son’s nanny because Sam had a temper tantrum when I told him I can’t hire you to come on my stand-up tour with us. “She heckled me at a club a few years ago,” I wanted to say. “She is the sassy little turd who trolls me on Twitter,” I could have told him. “She’s an even bigger pain in the butt when we’re face-to-face,” I thought to myself. What I would never tell him is—things could get complicated. For reasons.

Let me know if you want the job.

With great reluctance,

Owen

#AdorableHowObsessedYouAreWithMe

Dear Mr. Brodie,

Thank you for your email. Please inform Sam that I like him very much and would love to be his nanny and accompany him on your terrible joke of a stand-up tour.

I can assure you—things will not get complicated. For many, many reasons.

Primarily because Owen Brodie isn’t funny, and he can suck it.

Out of financial desperation and a fondness for your son,

Frankie

Read Kay’s Review: Funny Business

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Before writing steamy romantic comedy novels, Kayley Loring got a BFA in creative writing from a Canadian university and had a fifteen-year career as a screenwriter in Los Angeles (under a different name). She mostly wrote PG-13 family comedies that studios would pay her lots of money for and then never make into movies. In 2017 she decided to move to the Pacific Northwest and write about all the fun stuff that she wasn’t allowed to write about in those PG-13 scripts. Now she’s breathing cleaner air and writing dirtier words. It’s an adjustment she’s happily getting used to.

Release Boost – The Grumpy Player Next Door by Pippa Grant

RELEASE BOOST
Title: The Grumpy Player Next Door
Series: Copper Valley Fireballs #3
Author: Pippa Grant
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: July 8, 2021
BLURB

An enemies-to-lovers / sports / grumpy-sunshine / neighbor romance

I, Tillie Jean Rock, am not in love with my brother’s teammate. Sure, he might have those biceps and that “I am the grouchiest of grouchy bears” smolder, and he might shovel snow off his driveway next door wearing nothing but boxer shorts and rubber boots, and he might be running a side business feeding all the stray goats in town, but studliness is only skin-deep.

And I might flirt with him every chance I get, but I swear it’s only to annoy my brother.

And him.

Because Max Cole?

Under all of those glorious muscles and chiseled cheekbones and searing glares beats the heart of a heartless devil.

I could no sooner fall in love with a guy who treats me like a kid, and judges me at every opportunity, and sets an army of garden gnomes loose on my yard, than I could fall in love with my grandfather’s pet parrot.

But I can definitely annoy him. I can one hundred percent get on board with annoying him.

That’s what you do when you don’t like your neighbor, right?

But you know what they say about love and hate…

It’s a very thin line.

Especially when the real reason I’m not in love with Max Cole—that he’s incapable of love—might not be true at all.

The Grumpy Player Next door is a fun-filled enemies-to-lovers romcom featuring a ray of sunshine on a mission, an athlete who’s only grouchy around her, and an epic prank gone wrong. It stands alone and comes complete with small-town shenanigans, a goat who’s not nearly as wise as his name suggests, and proof that sometimes, love is the best kind of vengeance.

EXCERPT

There’s a fine art to revenge, and today, I am arting the hell out of it. I’m talking cackles of glee, evil cartoon overlord-style, rubbing my hands together while bouncing on my toes. Reminding myself to shut up because my brother will be home from his morning workout any minute now, and I don’t want to tip my hand when he doesn’t know I’m waiting for him here in his house up on the mountainside.
You would think he would’ve learned to engage his security system more often by now.
But he hasn’t, which means I’m here, armed and dangerous and ready, and I’m cackling with glee all over again.
I know, I know. Is this really how you want to pay him back for having a box labeled “dildos” delivered to you at your parents’ house in the midst of all the pre-wedding activities for your other brother last week?
Yes, actually.
Yes, it is.
It’s payback time.
Also?
I have zero doubt Cooper will have mad respect that I’m doing this.
Sort of like while I was pissed when he replaced my coffee beans with roasted goat poop before he left for spring training nine months ago, I very much respected that he pulled it off, even if I wasn’t pleased at having to admit that that was the prank that took him over the top to win in our annual off-season prank war.
But this winter?
This winter, my brother Cooper “Stinky Booty” Rock is going down.
The universe told me so. Why else would it have hand-delivered that video into my social media stream to inspire me right after I finished figuring out where to donate an unopened box of dildos?
I cackle again.
And then I slap my hand over my mouth.
He’s home.
There’s his dark head, bent toward the knob, beyond the tempered glass panel beside his front door. He’s dressed in Fireballs red, which is more orange than it is red, and he’s probably worn out from lifting at the gym.
Yesterday was cardio day.
I know, because he ran past Crusty Nut, our dad’s restaurant where I’m the manager five days a week, at least two dozen times without stopping in once to say hi.
I haven’t seen him since the wedding several days ago, which either means he’s avoiding me and the revenge he knows I owe him, or he has a stick up his butt and has forgotten the little people.
Or, possibly, he’s distracted, in which case, he needs this.
I squat into position at the top of the stairs, as hidden as I can be while still seeing my target, Nerf blaster locked and loaded, waiting while he fumbles with his keys.
For the record?
It’s not easy to hide at the top of a curved staircase. I’m on my belly now, half-angled behind the wall of the hallway to his guest bedrooms, peering between the slats of the banister, hoping all my target practice pays off.
Steady, TJ. This is what you trained for.
The lock clicks.
I flatten myself lower and take aim.
The door swings open.
Dark hair in the foyer. Go go go.
I squeeze the trigger, sending a rapid blast of modified foam darts at the six balloons floating in the space above the door.
The needle sticking out barely an eighth of an inch in the tip of the first dart connects. One helium balloon pops. Then two more, followed by the fourth and fifth. The sixth shifts after getting hit, like it’s a tough guy balloon. It’s the ninja of balloons, and it doesn’t want to participate in my dastardly plans today, but that’s okay. The other balloons are bursting in a sparkly, shiny, beautiful pink glitter spray that’s splattering on the walls, exploding from its nylon shell and raining down like a spring shower, coating the walls, making the air sparkle, and dusting all that dark hair as Cooper’s lifting his head. “What the—”
And in the span of a heartbeat, before he can finish that sentence, I realize my mistake.
My terrible, horrible, very bad miscalculation.
If I were a superhero, I’d be sucking all that glitter into my lungs and redirecting it into my brother’s bedroom, which is likely what I should’ve done in the first place—hindsight, right?—but I didn’t. This was so much more dramatic and didn’t risk me having to find out which local he’s screwing around with in his spare time, as she’d be coated in glitter too after rolling around in his sheets, except my prank has failed.
It has failed spectacularly.
Oh my god,” I gasp.
That’s not Cooper.
That is so not Cooper.

Funny Business; The Brodie Brothers Series #1  
(An interconnected standalone)

Publication Date: July 15, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Enemies-to-Lovers/Work-Boss-Nanny/Romantic Comedy

Author: Kayley Loring

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Soooo cute with all the snort-laughs and the potential for cheese sharts, p.s. that means it’s funny.

Seriously, Kayley Loring’s books always bring the laughter and this book is about two stand-up comedians so there was a lot of snort laughing the entire time I was reading…the cheese sharts….that was all contained within the pages of the story itself and you are welcome to read all about it and have your own potential accidents. LOL!

Within the pages of Funny Business, Frankie and Owen are a classic Loring couple. Full of steam, flirty banter, making me laugh while they fall in love. I for one never get tired of this formula, which is why I return to one-clicking her books every single time she writes a new one.

Owen Brodie needs a nanny while he is on a month-long comedy tour and while Frankie Hogan may be a heckler from his past, but she is also a qualified nanny desperately in need of a job. What could possibly go wrong?

During this month in close quarters, their love-hate relationship is full of sparks and chemistry that they try to contain within a can of gasoline; Owen’s son, Sam, is an adorable ninja who sneaks cheese every chance he gets, why is this a problem- you might want to reference back to my first sentence; and Frankie could be jeopardizing her future career by beginning a fling with Mr. Comedy Himself, but who really needs a career, right?

Sam is brilliantly adorable, which is another thing I continually love about Kayley’s books, she has the BEST kids in her stories, so if for no other reason, read her books for the cutest kids literally ever imagined.

Funny Business is hilarious and full of very cute moments. It can be read as a complete standalone, but if you’ve read Kayley’s other books you’ll meet past characters and love the interconnection.

Synopsis:

A single dad, a model, and a comedian walk into a bar… They’re all Owen Brodie.
It’s only funny if you aren’t the hilarious struggling comedian who has been hired to be his son’s nanny for the stand-up tour.

Dear Ms. Hogan,

I’m emailing to offer you the job as my son’s nanny because Sam had a temper tantrum when I told him I can’t hire you to come on my stand-up tour with us. “She heckled me at a club a few years ago,” I wanted to say. “She is the sassy little turd who trolls me on Twitter,” I could have told him. “She’s an even bigger pain in the butt when we’re face-to-face,” I thought to myself. What I would never tell him is—things could get complicated. For reasons.

Let me know if you want the job.

With great reluctance,
Owen

What is it about Growly Bears and Sunshine Girls that makes such addictive reading? Personally, I love making frowns turn upside down, probably because I live with my own grouchy man and live to see those rare smiles, just like Tillie Jean.

The pranks, the family, the love, and of course the grumpy baseball player, it all made for a wonderful addition to Pippa’s already fantastic interconnected series’.

Whether you want to put Grouchy Player Next Door in the Shipwreck series, the Fireballs series, or the Boy Band series, they all fit. There is a character that makes an appearance from each of those worlds and they all made me a happy, happy reader. GPND can be read as a complete standalone if you want to get to know a lot of new characters, but if you are fan of Pippa’s then jump in and enjoy the ride.

Tillie Jean is a Rock, not in the sense that she is someone to lean on for support, although she is because she’s awesome, but she is related to Cooper Rock and Grady Rock, so she literally is a Rock (ok, once again, not a literal stone)…ok moving on. TJ is loved by everyone in town. Like her brothers, she is Miss Sunshine and there to always give a helping hand, so when Max Cole blately and instantly dislikes her (going back four years- yes, she’s been trying for four years) she tries everything to get him to like her, unfortunately a prank gone very, very wrong doesn’t help on getting to lesson Max’s less grouchy side.

Max Cole will smile and flirt with pretty much everyone, everyone except Tillie Jean Rock. He knows better than to even think about engaging with his teammates’ sister. Cooper tells every rookie every season never, ever to even think about his dating his sister….so yeah, Max knows better. However, when Max ends up renting the house next to her during the off season, their close quarters make for interesting living engagements , that quickly escalate to prank wars and it’s hard to keep Trouble Jean out of his mind.

This is another huge win for Pippa Grant that brought a huge smile to my face. I loved revisiting past characters, while also meeting new ones and of course my favorite part was revisiting Shipwreck. I could seriously live in this small, wacky town.

Synopsis:

An enemies-to-lovers / sports / grumpy-sunshine / neighbor romance

I, Tillie Jean Rock, am not in love with my brother’s teammate. Sure, he might have those biceps and that “I am the grouchiest of grouchy bears” smolder, and he might shovel snow off his driveway next door wearing nothing but boxer shorts and rubber boots, and he might be running a side business feeding all the stray goats in town, but studliness is only skin-deep.

And I might flirt with him every chance I get, but I swear it’s only to annoy my brother.

And him.

Because Max Cole?

Under all of those glorious muscles and chiseled cheekbones and searing glares beats the heart of a heartless devil.

I could no sooner fall in love with a guy who treats me like a kid, and judges me at every opportunity, and sets an army of garden gnomes loose on my yard, than I could fall in love with my grandfather’s pet parrot.

But I can definitely annoy him. I can one hundred percent get on board with annoying him.

That’s what you do when you don’t like your neighbor, right?

But you know what they say about love and hate…

It’s a very thin line.

Especially when the real reason I’m not in love with Max Cole—that he’s incapable of love—might not be true at all.

The Grumpy Player Next door is a fun-filled enemies-to-lovers romcom featuring a ray of sunshine on a mission, an athlete who’s only grouchy around her, and an epic prank gone wrong. It stands alone and comes complete with small-town shenanigans, a goat who’s not nearly as wise as his name suggests, and proof that sometimes, love is the best kind of vengeance.

Excerpt

“I’m just asking,” I say, “are you sure you want to bet your future on a myth?” Because, to be honest, something inside me wishes she’d get up and say, screw you, fate, I’m taking my future in my own hands.
“Would I bet my future?” she asks.
I nod and lean forward to hear her answer.
Slowly, she says, “I’d bet everything.”
Her words ring in my ears. She’s serious. She’ll do anything to get with this random guy she hasn’t seen in nearly twenty years. It’s like a cosmic joke, except I’m not laughing. I guess I shouldn’t have expected anything less.
“It’s a myth,” I say. “It’s not real.”
“It is,” she says. She points her finger at me and jabs me in the chest. “And I’m going to prove it to you.” Her hand rests over my heart. We both look down at her touching me. She yanks it back and wipes her hand on her napkin.
No man likes to see a woman wipe herself off after touching him. I scowl and then take her unspoken challenge. “More likely, by the end of this week, I’ll prove that soul mates don’t exist.”
“Good luck, you have hundreds of Aunt Erma’s successes against you.”
No worries, I stand by my belief that the whole town of Romeo is suffering from romantic delusions. Hey, the tourism dollars depend on it.
Also, I’d like to push a little bit of reality into this situation and throw out the idea that this guy might not be decent.
“He could be a rapist,” I say. That gets her attention. Her head snaps up and she glares at me.
“Or a Lothario,” she says. Take that, her eyes say. She bares her teeth at me in a semblance of a grin and I smile back. Game on.
The minstrel who had wandered close again hightails it to the other side of the restaurant.
“He could be a drug dealer,” I say.
“Or a pharmacist,” she says.
“He could be an alcoholic.”
“A vintner.”
“He’s unemployed,” I say.
“Independently wealthy.”
“He looks like a frog.”
“He’s a prince,” she says.
“He’s boring.”
“Strong and silent.”
I glare at her and she glares back, a smile curving on her lips.
“Bad in bed,” I say.
“A sex god.” She bites at her lower lip and I have the urge to take it in my mouth and show her a decade of pent-up wanting. I yank my thoughts from her lips and drop my ace in the hole.
“He could be an ax murderer,” I say. Take that and chew on it.
She laughs, throaty and low, and her eyes light up. The candlelight sparks off her glowing skin.
“Or,” she says, “he’s a lumberjack. Mmmm. Sexy ax. I’ll hold the handle. Rawr.” She claws her hand and scratches at the air.
I shake my head. “You got it.” I hold up my goblet of mead for a toast. “To Matt Smith. Chloe’s lumberjack soul mate.”

Review – Chasing Romeo by Sarah Ready

57513906. sy475

Chasing Romeo; Soul Mates in Romeo #1 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: May 25, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Romantic/Road Trip/Second Chance/Comedy

Author: Sarah Ready

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A cheeky, over-top-grand-gesture, loved every moment of their soulmate finding love story!! OMG did I fall in love with Sarah Ready’s writing and this book was adorably fantastic!

Nick and Chloe take a road trip to find her soulmate, the one her grand aunt predicts she will fall in love with, the man she first kissed. Chloe is an over-the-top romantic while Nick is a deep cynic of love. Could the two have forked in the road at their deep rooted feelings…perhaps there was some forking involved…but whatever happened between them was a long time ago and now Chloe is dead set on finding her soulmate whose name is Matt Smith and not Nick O’Shea.

Chasing Romeo absolutely, without a doubt needs to be on the big screen. I could see the entire thing so clearly projected in a movie theatre and is totally romcom movie worthy. Nick and Chloe have tons of tension between all the gigging moments. Each moment only bringing them closer as their road trip spanned across the U.S. Their road trip and situations they found themselves in just keep getting funnier and funnier, while Nick was such a good sport supporting Chloe as she tried to find the right Matt Smith.

While this could be called a slow burning romance, I didn’t even notice because the book was so quickly paced with tons of chemistry brewing between Nick and Chloe the entire time. The laughs were plenty and while this was my first Sarah Ready book and I’m certainly looking forward to reading more in my future. I’m a totally hooked!

Blog Tour – Otterly Irresistible by Erin Nicholas

A hot, grumpy wildlife vet . . . and otters. You’re welcome.

Otterly Irresistible, an all-new fun and flirty, opposites attract standalone by New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas is available now!

New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas is taking readers back to the Bayou with an all-new, fun and flirty small town romance series!

Broody wildlife veterinarian Griffin Foster is done. Done trying to save the world. Done getting attached. He’s been fired twice for standing his ground and now he’s going to be content–by God–in small-town Louisiana, in a small veterinary practice, where there will only be small problems. 

Quiet and boring, though? Um, no. He’s been adopted by a loud, crazy Cajun family with a tiny petting zoo for him to care for. Hey, it’s not endangered tigers at a nationally renowned zoo, but a family of otters–and all the gumbo he can eat–isn’t a bad deal. 

Until she shows up. Again. 

The sunny, gorgeous optimist who stole his heart–and his favorite shirt–two months ago. Who clearly hasn’t heard the word “no” enough in her life. And who is the first woman to put even a tiny crack in his don’t-get-attached wall.


Charlotte “Charlie” Landry is the new marketing consultant for the family swamp-boat tour company and petting zoo. It might not have been her plan, but she is all in, ready to grow the business. Whether the hot, grumpy vet likes it or not. 

He doesn’t. 

Worse, sparring with his unforgettable one-night stand is more fun than he’s had in a long time. 

But watching wears-designer-dresses Charlie find her dream job amongst a bunch of goats, alpacas, and otters is a surprise. 

And her helping him find his passion again is…well, irresistible.

Dammit.

Excerpt

He lifted a brow. “Are you going to actually be helpful now or not?”

She loved every single thing about this petting zoo.

“Oh, I’m not going anywhere,” she told him. “I’m definitely going to help.”

He sighed.

Feeling suddenly lighter and happier than she had in a long time—and that was saying something as she was generally light and happy, not to mention on her way to Paris soon—Charlie turned back to the animals.

“Okay, now that we know each other better, how about you all be sweet and head back to the barn?”

Not one animal even looked at her.

“Hey, Stan?” she called to the big goat. “You’re clearly a leader. How about you show me that you can do some good with all that staunch determination and lead everyone back to the barn?”

“You can’t be serious,” the guy said. “Talking to them isn’t going to work.”

“Talking is what I do.”

“No kidding.”

She just lifted a brow. “So what should I do instead?”

Maybe he could give her an opening for charming him into putting that very nice, smirky, sarcastic mouth against hers and…

“Nudge ’em,” he said simply.

Now she blinked at him. “What?”

“Nudge them,” he said again.

“Just… nudge them? As in, push them?” She narrowed her eyes. Were they talking about goats? Or were they maybe talking about grumpy farmers who needed more than a subtle flirtation to make a move?

“Sometimes that’s all they need.”

Okay then. She was going to keep that in mind.

“So…” He nodded toward the goats.

She blew out a breath. Okay, so for right now, they were talking about goats.

Charlie approached the smallest of the animals. He—or she—looked up at her. “Hello, I’m Charlotte. Would you please accompany me across the street back to your barn?” She heard the man’s snort even from a distance. That made her smile even though she was still stuck with the problem of herding goats.

The goat, of course, didn’t move a step.

“I would very much enjoy it if you would grant me the pleasure of your company across the street at your barn,” she told the goat.

This time the goat didn’t even lift his head.

Charlie propped a hand on her hip. “I don’t feel that we know each other well enough for me to actually put my hands on your body, so it really would be easier if you would just head in the general direction of your barn.”

“For fuck’s sake.” Suddenly the man was back beside her.

He bent and lifted the goat, and Charlie couldn’t help but think this had worked out very well.
She hadn’t had to touch the goats, but she hadn’t been entirely unhelpful to him.

Okay, that wasn’t true. She had been completely unhelpful to him. But she hadn’t left him out
here with the goats alone.

The man pivoted and pressed the goat to her chest. Instinctively her arms went up and around it. He let go.

And just like that, she had her arms full of goat.

Charlie gasped, partially in surprise and partially because it only took her a millisecond to think about the fact that she now had a barnyard animal up against her Alex Perry cocktail dress.

“You have to be kidding,” she said to the man.

“When nudging doesn’t work, sometimes you have to get hands-on.”

Charlie blew out a breath. She was tucking that away in her idea of how to handle him too. But she was preoccupied at the moment.

And not so sure she wanted to kiss him after all.

No, that wasn’t true. She still wanted to kiss him. Especially now that he was standing closer.

Even if she had to kiss him over the back of a goat.

Which probably meant she really wanted to kiss him.

Dear Fiona,

I hope this letter finds you well—and by well, I mean significantly less infuriated than you were yesterday. I’ve wanted to continue our conversation from the night we met, but there are so many things I can’t say or do, now that I’m your professor.

As an anonymous letter writer, I can give you some idea of what I have planned for us, once the year is over. As an author, I can share my work in progress with you. Not for you to critique but to show you how much you mean to me.

When you’re done reading this page, destroy it—and then write me back. Don’t sign the letter. Don’t put a return address on the envelope. Mail it from a random mailbox.

Yours in problem solving,

Me

P.S. I still think you’re wasting your talent on that historical romance novel.

P.P.S. I really wanted to push you up against the door and kiss your beautiful, angry face. I will. One day.

***

Dear Emmett,

Your handwriting is almost as terrible as your mood swings, and it would have been my instinct to destroy that letter even if you hadn’t ordered me to.

If you show me your work in progress, I will critique it.

I am currently still too infuriated to write about all the other feelings I have for you.

Expect another letter soon.

Your problem and your solution,

Me

P.S. I still think an overpaid, overrated, overly handsome bestselling author of thrillers has no business teaching creative writing at a prestigious New York university.

P.P.S. To my great horror, I really wanted you to push me up against that door and kiss my angry face too. I understand now that your appalling way of treating me in class has been overcompensation, but I don’t forgive you for it. I’ll kiss you again anyway. One day.

Read Kay’s Review: The Love Interest

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Before writing steamy romantic comedy novels, Kayley Loring got a BFA in creative writing from a Canadian university and had a fifteen-year career as a screenwriter in Los Angeles (under a different name). She mostly wrote PG-13 family comedies that studios would pay her lots of money for and then never make into movies. In 2017 she decided to move to the Pacific Northwest and write about all the fun stuff that she wasn’t allowed to write about in those PG-13 scripts. Now she’s breathing cleaner air and writing dirtier words. It’s an adjustment she’s happily getting used to.

Dear Emmett,

Your handwriting is almost as terrible as your mood swings, and it would have been my instinct to destroy that letter even if you hadn’t ordered me to.

If you show me your work in progress, I will critique it.

I am currently still too infuriated to write about all the other feelings I have for you.

Expect another letter soon.

Your problem and your solution,

Me

P.S. I still think an overpaid, overrated, overly handsome bestselling author of thrillers has no business teaching creative writing at a prestigious New York university.

P.P.S. To my great horror, I really wanted you to push me up against that door and kiss my angry face too. I understand now that your appalling way of treating me in class has been overcompensation, but I don’t forgive you for it. I’ll kiss you again anyway. One day.

Read Kay’s Review: The Love Interest

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Before writing steamy romantic comedy novels, Kayley Loring got a BFA in creative writing from a Canadian university and had a fifteen-year career as a screenwriter in Los Angeles (under a different name). She mostly wrote PG-13 family comedies that studios would pay her lots of money for and then never make into movies. In 2017 she decided to move to the Pacific Northwest and write about all the fun stuff that she wasn’t allowed to write about in those PG-13 scripts. Now she’s breathing cleaner air and writing dirtier words. It’s an adjustment she’s happily getting used to.

Release Boost – I Pucking Love You by Pippa Grant

RELEASE BOOST
Title: I Pucking Love You
Series: Copper Valley Thrusters #5
Authors: Pippa Grant
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: April 8, 2021
BLURB

You know those stories where an adorably misunderstood clumsy girl needs a fake date to a wedding so she asks her brother’s best friend and they accidentally fall in love?

I wish that was the kind of life I lead, but it’s not.

I don’t need a date to a wedding. I need a date to a funeral.
Clumsy sometimes fits, but then, that’s true for all of us, right? But adorable? No. Misunderstood? Nope again. I’m just your average girl, standing in front of a funeral invitation, asking it to be a winning lottery ticket instead.

And I don’t have a brother, or a best friend with a brother available, which means I’m stuck with Tyler Jaeger.

Sure, he’s a professional hockey player who also knows advanced calculus, but let’s say we’re not compatible and leave it at that. I should know. I am a matchmaker.

Not a very good one, but that’s beside the point.

I know a mismatch when I see one.

Still, Tyler’s what I’ve got, and I am not going to this funeral solo, so he’s what I’ll take.

After all—what could go wrong at a funeral?

I Pucking Love You is a hilariously wrong romantic comedy about the world’s worst matchmaker, a hockey player with a problem he doesn’t want to talk about, and an awkward date-of-convenience that everyone would prefer to forget. It comes complete with a cat working his way through his nine lives, all the sexy times, fish and chips, and a swoony happily-ever-after.

EXCERPT

Tyler

We all have to be at practice tomorrow morning—check that, this morning, as its shortly after midnight—but I dont want to go home.

I dont want to drink. I dont want to talk. I dont want to screw.

I want—

Dammit.

I want a bucket of greasy fried fish and chips, because its what my big brother used to take me to get every time he came home on leave from the Marines and got annoyed at being hen-pecked by the four sisters between us.

My cars cold, thanks to the early November weather, and no, Im not telling you what kind of car I drive, because yes, it very much feels like compensation tonight.

It gets me where I want to go.

Thats all that matters.

That, and getting my ass to Cod Pieces before they close for the night.

Could I stay at the bunny bar and get fried fish and chips?

Yes.

Will I?

No fucking way.

Im still stewing in my own misery when the bright neon sign with the armored cod and the storefront that looks like a medieval castle comes into view at the edge of a strip mall four miles the wrong direction from my downtown condo. I roll the window down, letting in a blast of chilly air and the scent of fries.

Just in time.

I holler my order over the sound of my engine, then pull around to the window to get my fish.

Debate calling my brother in Miami.

Its one AM. He and his wife recently celebrated their kids first birthday, and I think theyre working on baby number two.

If I call him in the middle of the night to bitch about how I cant get it up, hell probably hang up on me, then tell our sisters.

And Mom.

Shes a professional comedienne with her own popular Netflix special. Theres no damn way Im bothering West in the middle of the night for this.

Ill talk to the fried fish and call it even.

Has as much personality as West had before he married Daisy.

The window swings open. Thatll be fourteen seventy-three, please.”

My car lurches forward before I remember to put it in park, and I gape up at the woman staring down at me. Muffy?”

My brain is playing tricks on me.

It has to be.

Because theres no way the curvy, clumsy, smart-mouthed goddess whos haunting my dick is standing there wearing a Cod Pieces polo and hat.

But she is.

And I swear to god, her long brown braids are recoiling in horror as her whole face twists, her lip curling, her left eye squeezing shut, before she snaps herself together. For the hundredth time today, I have no idea who this Muffy person is. My name is Octavia Louisa Beaverhousen.”

Fuck me.

There are two of them? She looks exactly like Muffy. Im not seeing things, and Im not projecting just because I want my dick to work again and the bunnies made me think about screwing Muffy in the walk-in fridge at the bunny bar.

Fourteen seventy-three, please.” She turns away as she holds out a hand, twitching her fingers like shes waiting for cash or a card.

And thats when I see the tattoo.

Rufus.
Her cats name. Its on her wrist.

Octavia Louisa Beaverhousen, my ass. This is Muffy.

Review – Otterly Irresistible by Erin Nicholas

57026903

Otterly Irresistible; Boys of the Bayou Gone Wild #1 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: April 20, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Romcom/Small Town/Opposites Attract Romance

Author: Erin Nicholas

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The sexiest, swoonist, and most adorable beginning to a Boys of the Bayou book EVER!!

I fell in love with Griffin when I met him in Four Weddings and a Swamp Boat Tour and that love is now eternal after Otterly Irresistible. There is something about a grumpy hero who has a soft spot for animals that just melts my soul. The grouchier they are the harder they fall and I’ll just say that Griffin is extra grouchy when this book begins.

Charlotte “Charlie” Landry is in Autre for her cousins’ weddings. Yes, that is plural, but that is entirely different story all together and while Charlie and Griffin meet during this momentous occasion, their story is entirely their own and revolves around otters, goats, and pigs…oh my!

Griffin is one grumpy vet with a gruff exterior who cares more about animals than he does about people. When Charlie asks him to dance he says no, but she is a girl who doesn’t take the word no lightly so his challenging gruffness calls to her need to never hear that word. Their very opposite views on, well basically everything, is adorable and just down right…delightful to read.

Otterly Irresistlbe is completely endearing, not only with all of the animals, but also with Charlie’s never ending supply of energy and ideas, but also with Griffin’s tender loving nature around every living creature and the dominate way he handles Charlie—yum.

This is the first book in a new Gone Wild series, but you’ll also get moments of catching up with favorite characters from the Bayou. I loved every moment of where Erin is taking us in this new Bayou adventure and I’m very excited for the ride.

Synopsis:

What happens when a smoking hot, but grouchy vet meets a sunny and sassy optimist? An opposites attract, grumpy boss, small town romance that’s otterly irresistible.

Broody wildlife veterinarian Griffin Foster is done. Done trying to save the world. Done getting attached. He’s been fired twice for standing his ground and now he’s going to be content — by God — in small-town Louisiana, in a small veterinary practice, where there will only be small problems.

Quiet and boring, though? Um, no. He’s been adopted by a loud, crazy Cajun family with a tiny petting zoo for him to care for. Hey, it’s not endangered tigers at a nationally renowned zoo, but a family of otters — and all the gumbo he can eat — isn’t a bad deal.

Until she shows up. Again.

The sunny, gorgeous optimist who stole his heart — and his favorite shirt — two months ago. Who clearly hasn’t heard the word “no” enough in her life. And who is the first woman to put even a tiny crack in his don’t-get-attached wall.

Charlotte “Charlie” Landry is the new marketing consultant for the family swamp-boat tour company and petting zoo. It might not have been her plan, but she is all in, ready to grow the business. Whether the hot, grumpy vet likes it or not.

He doesn’t.

Worse, sparring with his unforgettable one-night stand is more fun than he’s had in a long time.

But watching wears-designer-dresses Charlie find her dream job amongst a bunch of goats, alpacas, and otters is a surprise.

And her helping him find his passion again is… well, irresistible.

Dammit.

Review – The Love Interest by Kayley Loring

57319189. sy475

The Love Interest 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: April 16, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Forbidden/Age-Gap/Romantic Comedy

Author: Kayley Loring

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Adorable, witty, with a bit of forbidden mixed in. The Love Interest was everything I love about Kayley Loring with her fantastic humor with a tongue in cheek nod to what’s hot in pop culture right now. Absolutely Brilliant!!

Emmett Ford and Fiona Walker (great names) are both writers, although writers at very different stages in their career. Emmett is a successful NYT bestseller author with his action/thriller books also adapted to the screen. So while he’s worth millions Fiona has just moved to NY and working on her very first book and looking to break out in the romance world writing Regency romance. Oh, and is it redundant to point out that Fiona is in fact not worth millions. Okay, I didn’t think so. Carry on.

Both Emmett and Fiona are at an impasse and stuck in their inspiration – basically they have writer’s block. Meeting late one night in a diner, completely out of chance, they are intrigued and inspired by one another after that night and they are able to write. While they both wanted to continuing inspiring one another, fate had other ideas and a relationship just wasn’t allowed, but hate writing is a thing – right?

Does Kayley ever write a book that isn’t both fun and steamy?  I’ve never been disappointed when I’ve read one of her books and this book was no exception.

We get inside Emmett’s and Fiona’s minds while their writing which is funny. Their character mindsets while writing their own characters is like a look into an author writing their own books. Jack and William are the main characters of the books they are working on and both are quite funny in speaking back to both Fiona and Emmett.

There are also multiple times when Fiona had to stand up for her own writing in the romance genre. I know this is a very common fight in the writing world and yet romance books sell billions – sigh.  Fiona never backs down and I love that she’s fearless in who she is and stands strong for what she believes in.

While Emmett writes very successful books, he, last minute, takes a position at university where his father works as a professor in a creative writing class. This is the forbidden aspect of the book since Fiona is taking classes and Emmett becomes her teacher. Their classroom steam is extra steamy, but no classroom rules are broken because Emmett is always a grumpy professional.

Kayley Loring always delivers a good reading time and The Love Interest is fun, steamy and will bring the warm fuzzies along with laughs.

Synopsis:

Dear Fiona,

I hope this letter finds you well—and by well, I mean significantly less infuriated than you were yesterday. I’ve wanted to continue our conversation from the night we met, but there are so many things I can’t say or do, now that I’m your professor.

As an anonymous letter writer, I can give you some idea of what I have planned for us, once the year is over. As an author, I can share my work in progress with you. Not for you to critique but to show you how much you mean to me.

When you’re done reading this page, destroy it—and then write me back. Don’t sign the letter. Don’t put a return address on the envelope. Mail it from a random mailbox.

Yours in problem solving,
Me

P.S. I still think you’re wasting your talent on that historical romance novel.
P.P.S. I really wanted to push you up against the door and kiss your beautiful, angry face. I will. One day.

***

Dear Emmett,

Your handwriting is almost as terrible as your mood swings, and it would have been my instinct to destroy that letter even if you hadn’t ordered me to.

If you show me your work in progress, I will critique it.

I am currently still too infuriated to write about all the other feelings I have for you.

Expect another letter soon.

Your problem and your solution,
Me

P.S. I still think an overpaid, overrated, overly handsome bestselling author of thrillers has no business teaching creative writing at a prestigious New York university.
P.P.S. To my great horror, I really wanted you to push me up against that door and kiss my angry face too. I understand now that your appalling way of treating me in class has been overcompensation, but I don’t forgive you for it. I’ll kiss you again anyway. One day.

Review – I Pucking Love You by Pippa Grant

I Pucking Love You; The Cooper Valley Thrusters #5
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: April 8, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Sports/Romantic Comedy

Author: Pippa Grant

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I pucking loved this book!! I pucking laughed, I pucking sighed, I pucking fell in love with all the characters. It’s easy to say I pucking loved every little thing contained between the pages of I Pucking Love You.

Laughing out loud is pretty much a given when I’m reading a Pippa Grant book. I laughed a ton reading I Pucking Love You from beginning to end, along with some serious swooning while Muffy and Tyler fell in love. This couple both tickled my funny bone and melted my heart from start to finish and I have to say they rank pretty high as one of my all time favorite couples that Pippa has written.

Tyler Jaeger is smart, sweet, sensitive all while being a tough as nails hockey player. However, he also has a little problem that he believes only Muffy can help solve, especially when he traces his issue back to her. He just doesn’t know what he’s signing up for when he agrees to help her out and that it will involve facing his greatest fear…P.S. Tyler is absolutely the BEST!!

Muffy Periwinkle needs a fake date, not any kind of fake date, but one for a funeral. Who put the fun in funeral…no one. No one ever put the fun in those, but with Tyler by her side she just might survive it and she also may end up enjoying it more than she would have thought, especially with a hunky hockey player by her side. P.S.S. Muffy is a disaster and I love her mess to death!!

This couple is quirky and so darn adorable, both apart and together, it’s seriously hard not to fall in love with both of them. Everyone around them will make great stories going forth as this world just keeps getting better. I Pucking Love You is a joy to read, with ton’s of LOL moments, another Pippa hit!

Synopsis:

A hockey/fake date/not-quite-a-virgin very wrong romantic comedy

You know those stories where an adorably misunderstood clumsy girl needs a fake date to a wedding so she asks her brother’s best friend and they accidentally fall in love?

I wish that was the kind of life I lead, but it’s not.

I don’t need a date to a wedding. I need a date to a funeral.
Clumsy sometimes fits, but then, that’s true for all of us, right? But adorable? No. Misunderstood? Nope again. I’m just your average girl, standing in front of a funeral invitation, asking it to be a winning lottery ticket instead.

And I don’t have a brother, or a best friend with a brother available, which means I’m stuck with Tyler Jaeger.

Sure, he’s a professional hockey player who also knows advanced calculus, but let’s say we’re not compatible and leave it at that. I should know. I am a matchmaker.

Not a very good one, but that’s beside the point.

I know a mismatch when I see one.

Still, Tyler’s what I’ve got, and I am not going to this funeral solo, so he’s what I’ll take.

After all—what could go wrong at a funeral?

I Pucking Love You is a hilariously wrong romantic comedy about the world’s worst matchmaker, a hockey player with a problem he doesn’t want to talk about, and an awkward date-of-convenience that everyone would prefer to forget. It comes complete with a cat working his way through his nine lives, all the sexy times, fish and chips, and a swoony happily-ever-after.

New Release – Mourning Wood by Heather M. Orgeron

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Mourning Wood
Author: Heather M. Orgeron
Genre: Romantic Comedy

Release Date: March 4, 2021
BLURB

She’s hard up.
He’s just hard…

After an ill-fated one-night stand, Wyatt Landry was the last person I ever expected to see again.

By design, mind you, as I spent the last two years avoiding him.

He was only ever meant to be a good time—a really good time—and now, thanks to one teensy little mistake, he’s back in my life and wielding an entirely different set of tools.

It’s not like I intentionally hired a bogus contractor to redo our chapel, and Lord knows I never imagined Wyatt would ride up in his pickup truck, like a knight in thigh-hugging blue jeans, to save the day.

But here he is, and to make matters worse, he’s every bit as charming as I remember, and before I can fully process his reappearance in my life, he has my six-year-old daughter wrapped around his finger, my parents eating out of the palm of his hand, and my best friend shipping us like we’re some celebrity couple.

Thankfully, working in the death industry, I’ve mastered the skill of compartmentalization. Keeping my growing feelings tucked away should be a piece of cake. Except, seeing him every day definitely throws a wrench in that plan.

Before I know it, we’re trading favors for dates, and as much I don’t want to admit it, the feelings for him I thought were dead and buried are taking root and growing into something that looks a lot like love.

Daigle Family Funeral Services… don’t be caught dead any place else.

Author: Heather M. Orgeron

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Funny, funny, I am dead on the floor from laughing. This story warmed my heart, tickled my funny bone and was just really, really good! I so needed this book in my life.

Wyatt and Whitney are drop dead funny together. Their chemistry is off the charts, but even more than their dead on smexiness, their time spent together is just more than that.Whitney is a single mom to the brightest, sassiest six year old little girl who already sees herself working in the family business. Wyatt is instantly smitten with Whitney’s little girl along, which is a huge step towards earning affection with Whitney herself. It doesn’t take Wyatt long to know that he wants to be a part of their amazing family until death he does part and his pursuit is adorably relentless.

Priscilla, also known as Miss Priss, is so cute, and reminded me of my own daughter so much; not the doom and gloom so much, but certainly the no filter, and way too smart for her own good. I too loved every bit of her tenacity which made me adore Wyatt even more for seeing all the awesome that was contained in that little girl and the admire the mother that raised her.

All of the jokes and love was off the charts amazing, I highlighted so many sections of this book it’s hard to tell where I stopped and began again, but everything brought me tons of joy.

I desperately needed this story in my life and could have stayed reading it forever!

Blog Tour - 2021, Excerpt/Teaser Share, RomCom, Year in Releases - 2021, Year of Reviews - 2021

Blog Tour – Four Weddings and a Swamp Boat Tour by Erin Nicholas

Four Weddings And A Swamp Boat Tour, an all-new swoon-worthy Boys of the Bayou Gone Wild series standalone romance from New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas is available now!

She’s been proposed to five times.

Five.

She even said yes to one of them.

And then broke his heart when she called it off. Not to mention her mother’s heart. And her grandmother’s. And his mother’s. And…you get the picture.

Paige Asher has now officially sworn off all dating. Diamonds give her hives. All she wants is to be a yoga-doing, cat-collecting, vegetarian in peace. Away from her marriage-crazy family and all their expectations.

So when her weekend fling turns into a real friend and offers her a place to escape, she finds herself on his doorstep in Louisiana. And right in the middle of not just one family wedding, but three. Of course.

Charming, sexy bayou boy Mitch Landry gets stuff done. Whatever anyone needs. From alligator-sitting to getting a buddy drunk to showing a woman a good time to fixing a swamp boat, he’s the man. No problem. No drama.

But he wants a hell of a lot more from Paige than a temporary friends-with-benefits arrangement. He wants to take care of her. And her five cats. He also really wants other men to stop asking her to marry them.

But if a roommate and a few orgasms are all she wants, that’s what he’ll deliver.

He can just be her friend and not commit the greatest sin of all…asking her for forever.

Probably.

Excerpt

“Goodnight, Paige,” he finally said. “Goodnight, Mitch.” They still just stood looking at each other. “You need to go to your room,” he said, his voice a little tight. “I will. You too.” “Yeah, but—” He sighed. “You’re right by my door.” She looked at the closed bedroom door again. And smiled. “I guess I am.” She didn’t want to torture the guy. He was trying to be noble. Or something. But she wouldn’t deny that she liked that resisting her would be difficult. “You need to move away from my bedroom door, Paige.” His voice was a little gruffer. “You’re in my way of getting to my bedroom too,” she pointed out. “But are you tempted to throw me over your shoulder and say to hell with all of your good intentions? Already? Within twenty minutes of deciding you even have good intentions?” She laughed even as warmth filled her. Not just heat. Not lusty heat anyway. But a feel-good warmth that she didn’t quite understand. But she liked it. “Kind of.” He swallowed hard. Then said, “Go to bed, Paige.” She moved to the right, away from his door. As he came forward, she playfully pressed her back against the far wall. He smiled, in spite of himself, and went to his bedroom door. He twisted the knob but paused and looked over at her. She inched her way toward her bedroom, still against the wall. When she got to her door she reached for the knob and shot him a smile. “Goodnight, Mitch.” “’Night.” “And I’m just right here if you have any night time needs. Bad dreams.” She paused. “Good dreams.” “Stop it.” “Stop what? Just being a good friend.” She grinned. “My dreams might include white dresses and tuxes,” he warned. Again, no sense of oh shit. Instead she tipped her head. “You’re pretty good at bringing all of that up without asking the four-word question.” He didn’t comment on that. “See you in the morning.” “Okay.” She gave him another smile, then slipped into her room, feeling his eyes still on her until the door shut. She slumped against it, pressing her hand to her stomach. Dammit. She really liked him. It was really too bad they weren’t going to kiss anymore.

Excerpt

The plan had a flaw. I hadn’t counted on someone being right at the bottom of the railing, pressed against it, holding a drink. There was no way to stop myself. I tried, attempting to jump off the railing, but my timing was off. I was going too fast, and before I could maneuver, I just plowed into the back of him. As if he had sensed movement behind him, he turned exactly at the moment of collision. My center of gravity was off and I was falling head down. I took an elbow to the chin. And a martini in the face. Vodka went into my mouth. Not bad. Vodka went up my nose. Not great. Vodka went in my eye. That freaking sucked. “Ow!” I grabbed the guy around the midsection and tried to find my feet. My eyes were closed against the blinding, stinging liquid. Damn it. It was a dirty martini. Olive juice on top of vodka really was a bad combination. In my eye, anyway. I licked it off my lips. “Are you okay?” I couldn’t see shit, eyes watering viciously and still primarily closed, but I managed to right myself to a standing position. “I think so.” Except for the fact that a giant manhand was on my face, attempting to wipe away the spilled drink. It almost made me lose my balance all over again. I took a step back to escape the swiping. “Dakota?” The man knew my name. Thank God. That would be way less embarrassing than running into a total stranger. Unless it was the landlord because I owed him two hundred bucks. I wasn’t sure I was ever going to know because my eyes were still stinging and I had zero visibility. But I used my knuckle and dried my tears. My words died when I realized who this guy was. It was him. Brandon. The man who had helped me escape my surprise wedding and taken me ice-skating at Rockefeller Center. Standing there in a navy button-up shirt over tight black jeans that showed off his muscular build. Looking big and broad and sexy as hell. His eyes were wide in recognition. “Dakota,” he murmured again, this time without question. His tone was so pleased, so sensual, so intimate, like we had shared something more than one hot kiss under the mistletoe, that I nearly had an orgasm listening to him. “It’s you,” I said, because I’ve always wanted to say that. They do it in movies all the time, and never, ever, in real life is there an opportunity to say something as dramatic as “it’s you.” But this was my chance and I took it. I had been absolutely sure I would never see this man again and yet, here he was standing in front of me.

Review – Four Weddings and a Swamp Boat Tour by Erin Nicholas

55751765. sy475

Four Weddings and a Swamp Boat Tour; Boys of the Bayou #6 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: February 23, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Romantic Comedy

Author: Erin Nicholas

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

We are back in the Bayou and Paige and Mitch are on fire!!

We are back in Louisiana with the Landry family, in the deep south where Paige and Mitch’s chemistry jumps off the pages and big, loud families are a way of life.

Through Paige Asher, a girl from Appleby, IA, we get to fall in love with the boys of the bayou, really the entire Landry all over again. Even though Paige came down to spend time with Mitch, what she ends up doing is helping each Landry couple prepare for their upcoming wedding. She only expects to spend a short time visiting, but with each passing day falls a little more in love with everyone, including the man she originally came to visit, but she can’t stay…can she?

As much as Mitch would like to be upset that Paige is spending more time with his family than she is with him, yes-the girl who is a huge commitmentphobe-he really isn’t. He loves that she is drawn to his family and wants to help, but what does that hold for him when it comes time for her to leave? Huge potential for one broken heart, but he’s discovering he’s unable to stop it because Paige has already carved out a place in the Bayou family and in his heart.

This book is a beautiful bridge between Erin’s past series and her upcoming ones, while still keeping this as a complete standalone for any new readers. It’s very well crafted and a beautifully done story where you get a glimpse of so much without it being overwhelming.

 

Synopsis:

She’s been proposed to five times.
Five.
She even said yes to one of them.
And then broke his heart when she called it off. Not to mention her mother’s heart. And her grandmother’s. And his mother’s. And…you get the picture.

Paige Asher has now officially sworn off all dating. Diamonds give her hives.

All she wants is to be a yoga-doing, cat-collecting, vegetarian in peace. Away from her marriage-crazy family and all their expectations.

So when her weekend fling turns into a real friend and offers her a place to escape, she finds herself on his doorstep in Louisiana. And right in the middle of not just one family wedding, but three. Of course.

Charming, sexy bayou boy Mitch Landry gets stuff done. Whatever anyone needs. From alligator-sitting to getting a buddy drunk to showing a woman a good time to fixing a swamp boat, he’s the man. No problem. No drama.

But he wants a hell of a lot more from Paige than a temporary friends-with-benefits arrangement. He wants to take care of her. And her five cats. He also really wants other men to stop asking her to marry them.

But if a roommate and a few orgasms are all she wants, that’s what he’ll deliver.

He can just be her friend and not commit the greatest sin of all…asking her for forever.

Review – Halftime Husband by Erin McCarthy

Halftime Husband
(A standalone)

Publication Date: February 15, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Workplace/Single Dad/Romantic Comedy

Author: Erin McCarthy

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Perfect blend of steamy mixed with Erin’s fantastic humor!

Dakota is fun and flirty, pretty much lives in the moment, and not looking for a relationship because she has horrible taste in men, but cue Brandon who actually rescued her from her last disastrous relationship. The knight she didn’t know she needed.

While Brandon is also not looking for anything more than just a fun night between the sheets because he has two daughters at home and one divorce already on the books, he is drawn to Dakota and her playful nature. He can’t deny that no matter when he sees her he can’t keep his eyes or his hands off of her, but his career and his children always come first no matter what.

The first time these two meet they both made the mistake of not exchanging numbers. The second time it was basically….I’ll say a clerical error. The third time their chemistry is still off the charts and they both are in somewhat of a pickle and in a spot where they can help one another, the biggest question can they do it and not end up in the relationship that neither of them want.

Both Dakota and Brandon are so blinded by what they say they don’t want that neither of them are focused on what they can both have. This book is adorable and funny and all kinds of steamy. It’s a perfect read for the month of love!

Read Kay’s Review: Between the Lines

Meet T. Gephart

T Gephart is a USA Today and International bestselling author from Melbourne, Australia.
With an approach to life that is somewhat unconventional, she prefers to fly by the seat of her pants rather than adhere to some rigid roadmap. Her lack of “plan” has resulted in a rather interesting and eclectic resume, which reads more like the fiction she writes than an actual employment history. She’d tell you all about it, but the statute of limitations hasn’t expired yet. But all those crazy twists and turns have led her to a career she loves–writing romantic comedy.
When she isn’t filling pages with sassy and sexy characters with attitude, she’s living her own reality show in the ‘burbs of Melbourne with her American husband, two teenage children, and her fur child–Woodley.
She loves adventure, to laugh, travel, and strives to live her life to the fullest.

Between the Lines; Hot in the City #4 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: February 5, 2021

Genre: Comedy/Drama/Romance

Author: T. Gephart

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

No two people have been more delightfully matched as I smiled and laughed through this whole book. Between the Lines is a total joy to read and I loved every moment of reading it!

Tessa Ricci works for NY’s finest. Her body is toned and fit, having come from two parents who served our country, Tessa knows the dedication and sacrifice it takes to serve. And while her parents may have found love, she is also realistic that it may never happen for her. Not many men understand her need to serve and protect and that her handcuffs are used on the job and not in the bedroom.

Justin Tibbs loves women and has never made secrets about it. Lately the variety has lost its appeal, but he can’t put his finger on to the reasons why. However, when he comes across the most beautiful, intriguing woman he’s ever met he can’t shake her from his thoughts- clean or dirty. Did I forget to mention that said woman is Tessa…a woman he happens to know, but has never caught his eye until she displayed the woman beneath the police uniform. Men…so good at compartmentalization until a beautiful woman escapes that box he has placed her in.

Justin and Tessa each give the other as good as they get, teasing and taunting, so evenly matched in their personalities. From their very first date (which had me rolling with laughter…OMG…best first date scene I think I’ve ever read) Tessa and Justin not only have chemistry, but they push one another on every level possible, something they have both wanted, but never expected in a partner.

Between the Lines is by far my favorite book in this series!!!

Synopsis:

Justin Tibbs might be a hot, athletic, and amazing firefighter but he also has a reputation as a manwhore. Tessa Ricci worked too long and too hard to be taken seriously in the NYPD to fall victim to his charm.
Assuming he was interested, which he wasn’t.
Until he was.
And then neither of them was sure who was seducing who.

Justin Tibbs— Bailing and heading to Tessa’s apartment. If you don’t hear from me in twenty-four hours, she’s probably killed and tossed me in the Hudson. Tell everyone it was a good way to go, and I’m not even sorry. Enjoy the rest of your night, I know I sure will be.

Jared Leighton – Tibbs, do NOT screw around. She is NYPD and a friend, have you completely lost your mind?

Justin Tibbs —Sorry, brother, I need to see this through. I haven’t been this intrigued by a woman in a very long time. Worth dying over. Been nice knowing you.

Jared Leighton— Tibbs, come back to the bar before it’s too late.

Jared Leighton—Tibbs!

Jared Leighton— Jesus Christ.

Excerpt

The guys were going to kill him.
Ollie scrubbed a hand over his face.
They wouldn’t be surprised, of course. But they were going to be pissed.
They’d all known that Piper quitting was a risk and that one day she’d probably wise-up and lose her patience and that would be it.
They’d also all known that when it happened there was a 90 percent chance it would be because of Ollie.
The other 10 percent chance was that it would be because of Ollie and Dax together.
And now it had finally happened.
If it came down to choosing between him and Piper, he wasn’t sure he wanted to know how that debate would end up. Or how short the discussion would be before they decided they wanted and needed her more.
That was only one of the reasons he hadn’t told them yet.
The other was because he was still processing the part where she’d said she loved him.
What was he supposed to do with that?
She wasn’t just supposed to say that out loud right to him, was she? He had not been expecting that. The guys and their girlfriends had insinuated for a while now that Piper might have a crush on him but no, he hadn’t expected her to ever say anything herself.
It was a might have. A crush. Okay, they were adults and maybe adults didn’t have crushes exactly, but everything anyone had said suggested that it was just that Piper thought he was interesting at times and that she didn’t hate spending time with him.
But a crush wasn’t love. For fuck’s sake.
And it had to be Piper?
Piper Barry was amazing. She was gorgeous. She was smart. She was capable. She could do anything. She was funny and sweet and sassy and tough.
She was intimidating as hell.
What was he supposed to do with her now?
What was he supposed to do without her now?
Well, the solution seemed pretty obvious. She’d basically given him the answer herself—I can’t be in love with you and work for you. And the only one of those two things I can change is the working for you part.
So he needed to get her to not be in love with him anymore. Then she’d come back to work and all would be fine.
Now he just had to get her to realize she could do a hell of a lot better than him.
Of course, he’d been a pain in her ass for five years now. If that didn’t do it, he wasn’t sure what would.
