Blog Tour- Matchmaking Mischief by A.R. Casella and Denise Grover Swank

He needs to go away. Which means someone needs to matchmake him.
And I’m just the girl for the job.

Matchmaking Mischief, an all new opposites attract romantic comedy with the perfect grumpy hero from New York Times bestselling author Denise Grover Swank and USA Today bestselling author A.R. Casella is available now!

Willow

There are certain expectations when you’re born into a multigenerational family of matchmakers, which is why I fled my hometown and tried to build a life of my own.

But it turns out matchmaking is hard to quit, and I can’t stop trying to match the customers at the bakery I manage—including my boss and the tea shop owner next door—even though I’m hopeless at love.

So it seriously crimps my style when Alex Hunter starts coming around, working on his book at the bakery. He’s hot, grumpy, and thinks romance is a dirty word. Worse, he keeps distracting our customers.

He needs to go away. Which means someone needs to matchmake him.

And I’m just the girl for the job.

Alex

I’m a writer who can’t write, and lo and behold, I meet a matchmaker who’s allergic to love.

Me being me, I fall for her.

Most of the people in this town seem insane, but I have to turn my frown upside down and show Willow Mayberry that matchmakers deserve love too.

Excerpt

“Thank you for today,” she says quietly.

“There’s nothing to thank me for,” I say. “I enjoyed it…”

She gives me a pointed look.

“Well, obviously, except for the part where you had to go to the emergency room, although I won’t deny that I liked looking at your ass.”

If she’d been holding a dish, she would have dropped it. “You looked?!” 

“No,” I say, laughing a little at the horror on her face. “Not when she pulled your shorts down to give you the steroid shot. Those are some shorts though.”

She looks embarrassed, and I can’t have that, so I say something stupid. “You know, someone told me you think I’m so sexy, and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it all day.”

“Who told you that?” she asks, blanching. “Nicole? I barely know her.”

You did,” I say, reaching for her hand. “When you were high on Benadryl.”

She doesn’t pull away. My heart is pounding now—I can hear it in my ears—and I pull her to me. “You said I should be with someone bold and sexy,” I say into her ear. Her body is against me now, her breasts pressing into my chest, the curve of her hips under my hands, and that delightfully messy hair is in the vicinity of my nose, so I can take in her scent—citrus and vanilla. Sunshine.

“I guess I said a lot of things,” she says, her voice muffled. She’s looking down, and I can’t have that either, so I tip her chin gently so she’s peering up at me. Her eyes…they’re like a storm, but one feeling punches through: lust. She wants me too.

Thank God.

You’re bold,” I say. “You’re sexy as hell. Talking to you makes me feel like I’m in Narnia.”

“What?” she asks, clearly taken off guard by that. Me and my big mouth.

“It’s just…time changes when we’re together, or even when we’re just talking. It slips by without seeming to. I could talk to you for hours without noticing time is passing. It’s like stepping through that wardrobe door, and—”

And I shut the hell up because she’s lifting up on her toes. With my heart soaring in my chest, I lean down and claim her mouth, gentle at first—a getting-to-know-you kiss—but her lips are so soft yet hungry, and a little sound escapes her throat. I’m suddenly ravenous for her.

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Adorably cute story about two opposites who fell for one another when they set about doing good deeds for others around town. #TeamSunshine.

Alex is a glass half-full pessimist, where as Willow is a glass half-full optimist and yet these two were drawn to each other from the first time they met. Their meddling meetups are adorable each and every time and it doesn’t take long for Willow to pull Alex out of his doldrums.

Alex came to town to escape his writer’s block and Willow came to town to heal her heart. These two shouldn’t work, but they are the perfect complementary partners for one another, the one thing stopping them…Alex is in town temporarily while he finishes his book and Willow’s heart…yeah, she doesn’t want to damage it any more than she has by mistakes in her past.

Willow is willing to fix anyone’s love life, except her own and once Alex catches on to this, he’s just willing to spend time in her company, hence #TeamSunshine is born. The name grows and more people get involved and soon t-shirts are made. It’s fun and adorable and what was supposed to be just between the two of them grows into acts of kindness and spreads optimism throughout the town.

Matchmaking Mischief is full of smalltown fun, friendship, good deeds, and falling in love. It is the perfect book to pick up that will fill you with optimism and lots of sunshine.

Synopsis:

She’s a hopeless romantic…for everyone but herself. Can the least romantic man alive convince her love isn’t just for other people?

Blog Tour – Love at First Hate by Denise Grover Swank and AR Casella

Love at First Hate, an all new not-to-be missed enemies to lovers contemporary romance from New York Times bestselling author Denise Grover Swank and USA Today bestselling author A.R. Casella is available now!

The first book in a new series by Denise Grover Swank and A.R. Casella, authors of the USA Today bestselling Asheville Brewing series.

She wants his story. He wants his secrecy. Too bad he can’t stay away from her.

Molly

Blogging about bad dates used to be fun, but a girl can only take so much foolishness. So I broke up with my job.

Okay, full disclosure, I was fired. It’s a long, sordid tale, involving my sourdough starter—RIP, Fred!—and my ex-boss’s serious lack of humor.

Newly funemployed and in need of a break, I go to Asheville to dogsit for my sister…and stumble onto a scoop big enough to put my fake-dating days behind me forever.

Augusta Glower, local success story, wrote a bestseller about the self-help group she started. People think her system works, and copycat Bad Luck Clubs have sprung up nationwide. Something feels off, though, and a little poking around by yours truly suggests she stole the idea.

There’s one problem. I have to prove it, and the guy she ripped off—super-hot house flipper Caleb Reynolds—seems to…well, hate me. Which is too bad since his secrets aren’t the only thing I’d like to peel away.

* * *

Cal

Molly O’Shea is my worst nightmare.

Is she sexy as sin? Well…yeah. Does she smell like honeysuckle and trouble? No doubt. Is she determined to dig up my secrets with a backhoe? I’m pretty sure she got a two-week rental. But I’ll never talk. If the reason I started the club gets out, my whole life will implode.

So why is she so damn irresistible?

Excerpt

It’s steeper as we approach the summit, and I turn back to make sure she’s still behind me and not faltering on the loose rock. When we reach the steps to the observation area, I let her go first so I can watch her reaction. Around the corner there’s a stone patio, and she gasps as she walks across it to the low rock wall surrounding the space. 

The sunrise is everything I hoped it would be. Clouds hang low in the east, providing enough cover to let the rays of the sun paint the sky with pinks and deep purples. Beneath the sky stretch the peaks and valleys of the Blue Ridge Mountains. A thin river runs in the distance. Rhododendrons blossom all around us.

I move next to her and see she’s shivering in that stupid T-shirt and shorts. It’s windy up here and colder than on the trail. At least we were moving back there and protected by the trees and bushes. Now that we’ve stopped and are standing out in the open, we’re being pelted by gusts of cool wind. Without thinking, I press my side into hers and wrap my arm around her back, covering her upper arm with my hand. I can feel goose bumps under my fingers. 

“What are you doing?” she asks, but it’s not adversarial. She’s challenging me to admit the truth. 

You’re sexy as hell, and I want you more than I’ve wanted a woman in a very long time. 

But while that’s true, it’s not the only reason I drew her close. She’s also cold, and I don’t like seeing her uncomfortable. 

Somehow, admitting to that seems more dangerous. 

“How many times do I have to tell you that I want to see the sunrise?” I ask, purposely sounding annoyed. “You’re freezing, so you’d be complaining in about three seconds. Now I get at least three more seconds to enjoy the view in peace.” 

She looks up at me, and I can tell she has a smart-aleck response on the tip of her tongue, but she doesn’t speak. 

Jesus, I want to kiss her, not to keep her quiet like I’ve insinuated, but to taste her lips, her tongue… 

I want to taste every part of her.

From the look of surprise on her face, she must see my raw hunger. When she jerks her gaze back to the living work of art before us, I can’t decide whether I’m relieved or disappointed. 

Her body leans into mine, though, and I feel the heat of her nestled against me. 

“It’s beautiful,” she says. 

This view never ceases to steal my breath and remind me that the world is bigger than my problems. But for the first time since I began making these hikes, I’m sharing it with someone other than a random fellow hiker encountered on the trail. I’m spending this moment that I usually reserve for myself with Molly, and the two of us are in our own little world. 

I glance down at her, smiling to myself at the awe on her face. One of the many faces of Molly O’Shea, and I have the disadvantage of being attracted to every one of them.

Love at First Hate; Bad Luck Club #1

Genre/Tropes: Enemies-to-Lovers/Contemporary Romance

Author: Denise Grover Swank and AR Casella 

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Charming and adorable, sprinkled with humor and steam, the perfect summer romance.

Cal Reynolds lost his wife three years ago and has never really moved on. When reporter, Molly O’Shea begins delving into his personal life and the reasons behind the Bad Luck Club, a club he and his dad began after his wife passed and his father’s second wife left him, well Molly intrigues him in more ways than just as a way to meddle in his life. He wants her to move past her nosey investigating and just be with him for the sake of being with him, but is that possible when he hasn’t moved past the events that happened three years ago either.

Molly came to Asheville simply to dogsit while her sister was on vacation, but she discovered a lead on a story that was just too juicy to pass up. Even better the man behind the story is a true dish and she enjoys spending time with him probably more than she should considering she’s only in town for a few weeks and he’s the center of the story she’s working on. While tracking down leads she makes a circle of friends she never thought possible and making and a life that she never dreamed. Could she stay and have something more beyond just a great story?

The Bad Luck Club is a really sweet concept started by two men who were down on their luck and having a really hard time at life. Commiserating with others who are also down on their luck and finding ways to change your outlook on life is a great way to change your life around. Cal and his father, Bear, are extremely likeable and it’s an easy book to fall in love with.

Every secondary character is fun and made the story roll right along. With this as the first book in a new series there is a lot of potential for more stories as each person is full of personality.
