Release Date: January 17 

 

A stand alone brother’s best friend romance about Ash Talmadge & Amelia Ballentine by USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…

Wait for Always (Coastal Chronicles, #4)

Ash Talmadge is everything I shouldn’t want.

My brother’s best friend. A too charismatic, too attractive Southern gentleman. And obsessed with someone else.

But she’s finally out of the picture. I put two years between their break up just to be sure. This is finally my chance.

His focus is all on me. Exactly where I wanted it to be since high school when he saved me from humiliation. And after college when he finally realized I was more than just his best friend’s little sister.

There’s only one person who could ruin this for me.

I’ve waited this long.

I’m willing to wait for always.

Kendall
My life has been an endless loop of heartache and breakup songs.
I’ve lived in fear that I’m broken and will never find the kind of love that would piece me back together into something whole.
When my boyfriend proposes, I say yes, desperate for an easy fix. For a super-glue solution.
But, on the day of my wedding, when my dad tells me to follow my heart, it doesn’t lead me down the aisle.
Instead, it takes me straight to Declan Pierce’s car—where I crash his road trip.
The more time we spend together, the more he shows me it’s okay to be broken.
With him, lyrics aren’t just words on paper.
Promises aren’t just whispers in the dark.
And having a few cracks…well, they help the light come through.
Declan
I’ve had feelings for my best friend’s sister for as long as I can remember.
Watching her jump from guy to guy, I’ve been biding my time, waiting for the right moment to tell her.
And then she does something I never thought she’d do…she gets engaged.
This is the part where I’m starting to accept that the woman I love will never be mine.
Until she jumps into my car in her wedding gown and tells me to floor it.
With Kendall in my passenger seat and the past in the rearview mirror, I plan to do whatever it takes to show her that she doesn’t need super glue.
She needs to find the beauty in the cracks.

The Setup by Jennifer Bernard is now live!

https://geni.us/TheSetUp
Available on All Platforms

He left without warning in the middle of a Lake Bittersweet winter.
Now he’s back… just in time for the holidays.

For Gina Moretti, the holidays are bittersweet thanks to a history of romantic disasters. This holiday season, her friends are taking the reins and are setting her up. Little did she know the whole town would get into the act, but that’s Lake Bittersweet for you. When a date goes sideways, she’s shocked to be rescued by the one-and-only Kirk Williams–her brother’s best friend, who left town long ago and is now a celebrity hero. 

Kirk is back in Lake Bittersweet for some peace and quiet, but once he sees Gina, that’s out of the question. His best friend’s tomboy little sister is now a gorgeous woman with secrets of her own. When she asks him for help tracking down someone from her past, he jumps at the chance to win her trust. As for resisting their intense attraction…he might be famous for his heroic rescues, but he’s not that strong.  

Can Kirk and Gina banish the ghosts of holidays past and claim the future of their dreams …while dealing with family revelations, obsessed fans, and the endless parade of holiday setups?

Review – Total Chaos by Nikki Ash

Total Chaos; Love and Lyrics #3
(#3 within a series)

Publication Date: January 5, 2023

Genre/Tropes: Rock and Roll/Friends-to-Lovers/Runaway Bride Romance

Author: Nikki Ash

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
A beautifully written, friends-to-lovers romance that completely stole my heart.

Total Chaos was plotted to perfection. Each twist was revealed at the perfect moment to give the characters emotional depth, but also to keep the story flowing so I never wanted to put the book down. Also, while the series has given me a unique couple to fall in love with with each book, Kendall and Declan have easily slide into first place with this beautiful book.

Declan has been in love with Kendall for years while she has been oblivious to his infatuation. I believe everything happens for a reason and at the right time, even though Declan suffered years of unrequited feelings, it truly was for the best and he does come to agree with that sentiment. During those hard years Kendall went through men like kleenex as she wasn’t ready, nor was she emotionally stable for Declan. He is a forever kind of guy and once they jump into something…well, together they are all kinds of perfection.

This story is sweet, romantic, and truly heartfelt. It delves into those feelings we’ve all felt at one time or another. Self doubt, self esteem because, yes, even rock stars have self-esteem issues. We’re human and isn’t that why we love connecting with other people just like us, even a runaway bride and her best friend with a ton of unrequited feelings. This book is real and hits all the feels. Total Chaos is total perfection and I couldn’t get enough of this newest couple.

Publication Date: December 28, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/MM/Bi-awakening/Friends-to-Lovers Romance

Author: Becca Steele

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Each Becca Steele novel becomes my new favorite and she has done it again!! I totally fell in love with Ander and Elliot both independently and together. Sigh….

Ander and Elliot have been best friends since they were little, but as they got older Elliot realized his feelings for his best friend began to change, but he buried them deep as Ander was straight. Elliot, throughout this entire book, broke me over and over again. His side of the story is super angsty and it’s no wonder with how he had to bury his feelings for so long. He needed all the hugs and kisses and I totally wanted to give them to him.

It was the moment that Ander shared a kiss with Elliot that everything in both of their lives changed. For the first time Ander saw a whole new world of opportunities he’d been missing out on, like a whole new buffett he hadn’t been eating and suddenly he wanted to explore it. What he didn’t realize was it wasn’t the world he wanted to explore, it was just Elliot.

Ander is super easy going, self confident in a way that makes him really likeable, it’s hard not to fall for him over and over, even as he figured things out. These two were the perfect balance of best friends to lovers with great chemistry. I loved this book and how these two finally fell for each other. Sooooooo good!!!

Trey Whitt is no stranger to the rock ‘n’ roll life.
New city every night, and a new fling in his bed. He could have any woman he wanted, but he set his sights on me.
After joining A Rebels Havoc, Trey’s not ready for what comes along with his sudden rise to fame. He certainly never could’ve prepared for all his dirty secrets and sex life to be dragged through the headlines.
For all my life, I’ve never been the one who gets chosen, the one all the men desired. I’ve spent the past twenty-two years holding on to my innocence. So when I catch Trey watching me from across the nightclub, I decide he’s the one I want to claim it.
I know better than to think anything more could come from hooking up with a rock star. During my walk of shame the following morning, I’m forced to face reality when he calls me by the wrong name.
No matter how hard it is to forget our night together, I’m determined to put him and his dirty mouth behind me. Only neither of us is ready for the turn our life takes, bringing us back together again.
Secrets, lies, and rumors—each of them could destroy his career and tear us apart.
Yet there’s one secret from our past neither of us saw coming, and when Trey finds out, it could ruin everything we have between us.
Forever.

He’s as tough as nails on the ice, but off the rink, he’s a potato farmer from Prince Edward Island who knows exactly what he wants.

What he wants is me. A rich girl from the Hamptons who’s practically engaged.

When I find out my boyfriend is going to propose when I go home for the holidays, I do the only thing I can do. Run the other way.

That’s right, I’m a coward.

Thanks to an injury the night of our college’s holiday production, I have the perfect excuse to stay in hiding. Ryan drives me to his farm on the island to care for me, but the tension between us is explosive. Still, we keep our distance until my boyfriend gives me an ultimatum that ends our relationship.

Soon enough, Ryan and I are finding ways to warm our bodies during the cold winter nights, but when I start getting conflicting messages from his family and friends, I am no longer sure what Ryan wants.

When I get the answer wrong, and tragically hurt the guy I’ve fallen for, I’m not sure we can ever find our way back to happily ever after.

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Ryan and Alysha might just top my favorite couple in this series!! I was not expecting Ryan to be so gosh darn sweet, but holy moly…that boy is off the charts amazing!!

This couple connected on every possible level between their silly humor, chemistry, future ambitions, down to earth sensibilities, they just plain clicked and it made the story fly by.

Alysha goes home with Ryan during the Christmas holiday, avoiding her parents and boyfriend was a major factor, but also because she hurt her ankle and traveling the long distance home was nearly impossible.

While Alysha’s always been attracted to Ryan, she’s never acted on it, she’s had a long time boyfriend and has always been faithful. That is until he makes an ultimatum; come home for Christmas or else they are through. She takes the ultimatum and for the first time in her life feels free. That should tell her something right there, especially when her next impulse is to give into her long time feelings for Ryan and they embark on a holiday fling. You go girl!!

Ryan’s love for his family, his hometown, and pride for where he comes from is magnetic and it’s no wonder Alysha falls so easily. The hard part is making him believe in the magic of himself when it comes to something long term with Alysha, but Christmas is right around the corner and wishes happen….right?

Alysha and Ryan just shine on the page making this a truly feel good story that happens to be coming out at the perfect time for the holidays.

Synopsis:
He’s as tough as nails on the ice, but off the rink, he’s a potato farmer from Prince Edward Island who knows exactly what he wants.

What he wants is me. A rich girl from the Hamptons who’s practically engaged.

When I find out my boyfriend is going to propose when I go home for the holidays, I do the only thing I can do. Run the other way.

That’s right, I’m a coward.

Thanks to an injury the night of our college’s holiday production, I have the perfect excuse to stay in hiding. Ryan drives me to his farm on the island to care for me, but the tension between us is explosive. Still, we keep our distance until my boyfriend gives me an ultimatum that ends our relationship.

Soon enough, Ryan and I are finding ways to warm our bodies during the cold winter nights, but when I start getting conflicting messages from his family and friends, I am no longer sure what Ryan wants.

When I get the answer wrong, and tragically hurt the guy I’ve fallen for, I’m not sure we can ever find our way back to happily ever after.

Review – I Love You Both So Much by Leslie McAdam and

I Love You Both So Much
(standalone)

Publication Date: December 10, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Friends-to-Lovers/Holiday/MMM Romance/Menage

Author: J.E. Birk and Leslie McAdam and Rachel Ember

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
High steam, super sweet, best friends to lovers, holiday romance.

Jeb is one of the cutest, most adorable male characters I’ve read in awhile. He has this wholesome, naive, freshness about him that made him extremely likeable. Although I suppose, therein was the problem…if you want to call it that. Jeb was stuck in the middle of a feud between his best friends, Adam and Emery. Neither Adam nor Emery wanted to give up their friendship with Jeb because he truly is the nicest guy you ever would meet, but being stubborn as all get out, neither guy wanted to know about their existing friendship with Jeb because they are still bitter about something that blew up in their own past. It’s complicated and pretty much gives Jeb an ulcer every time they visit. Sound the alert!! Both Adam and Emery are headed Jeb’s way, but this time Jeb plans to fix what is broken.

You see, Jeb is the glue that holds their friendship together. That is very clear through the entire book. His sweet disposition is hard not to like, but the other two, while stubborn, okay, they also have great qualities, especially once we get past their….well, pasts. But back to sweet Jebbie…he might be more than just glue that holds the three of them together and holy hotness….Jeb, Adam, and Emery all coming together – wink, wink – is seriously hot!!

ILYBSM is sweet, super, super steamy, and filled with a bit of small town holiday magic that made this book a total joy to read. I loved slipping back and forth between the characters, the text messages, the past and present, meeting all of the colorful characters, and even the crazy goat made this entire story entertaining.

Now, I can I talk more about Jeb…..LOL😍

Synopsis:
A Holiday M/M/M Romance

Everyone has secrets. I’ve kept some big ones from my two best friends, and I know they’ve got a few of their own. After all, Embry and Adam never told me why they stopped talking to each other the night we graduated college. For my part, I’ve never told them that I’m bi—or that I’ve been in love with both of them for years. I’m also definitely not telling them I’ve mismanaged my family’s tree farm so badly that it’s about to go out of business right before Christmas.

But when I crash off a ladder hanging up holiday lights and break my wrist, they come running like Santa’s elves. They’re both very grumpy about seeing each other again, but I can’t be sorry to finally have an excuse to get them in the same place. Wait until they find out we’re all sleeping in one bed…

At least their feud is put on hold when they discover what a mess I’ve made of my business. Soon the three of us are scrambling to pull off a Christmas miracle and save the farm. And maybe it’s the magic of the holidays, but a whole lot of feelings and long-buried truths are coming to the surface—and our friendship is starting to become something much bigger.

Will we survive the season? Or are all my dreams about to be crushed this Christmas?

ILYBSM is a sweet and steamy contemporary holiday m/m/m polyamorous romance about three former best friends. It stars Jeb, a sweetly oblivious farmer who’s the hottest mess to ever grow trees in Vermont; Embry, a mechanic who can fix any engine but not a relationship; and Adam, a graphic designer and organizational whiz who irons his sheets. It features truths that slip out thanks to homemade eggnog, a demon goat who looks fabulous in a Santa hat, and an unconventional happy ever after.

Blog Tour – Catching Kye by Hannah Gray

💗NEW RELEASE 💗

Catching Kye by bestselling author Hannah Gray, is LIVE! Grab this steamy, forbidden, friends to lovers, fake relationship, sports romance today! 

Order here: https://mybook.to/catchingkye

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/61404986-habit

About the book:

Everyone always says the best way to get over someone is to get under somebody else. Well, I guess I’ve never been one to believe it. Cheated on by my football-star boyfriend and betrayed by my closest friend, I’m not looking for yet another chance to get hurt. 

Kye Collins isn’t just a guy. He’s 𝘵𝘩𝘦 guy. A star on a D1 football team. The owner of a panty-melting smile and abs that’ll have you fanning yourself and tingling in places you shouldn’t. Oh … and he’s my brother’s best friend. 

When he convinces me to hang out with him, I warily take him up on his offer. After all, as long as I keep my guard up, I won’t get hurt. Besides, a friendship between a male and a female can work, right? 

What starts off as an innocent alliance becomes dicey when he suggests we fake date. It seems like a good plan. A solid scheme to help him get his mom off his back while also making my ex mad. If I can hurt the guy who caused me pain and make the mean girls at school jealous, that’s a double win. Plus, hanging out with Kye Collins is fun. 

One kiss—that’s all it takes. A kiss only meant for the eyes of those who hurt me. A kiss that’s supposed to be a big F you to those devils lurking in the shadows, watching my every move. But that same kiss makes me come alive in a way I never have. Makes it impossible for me to ignore that feelings I have whenever he is around. And it forever changes the relationship between Kye and me. 

Sometimes, tragedies bring people closer together, but in our case, it pulls us apart. But when Kye runs, I’m not far behind, ready to catch him.

This is book three in the Florida East University series.

ABOUT HANNAH GRAY

Hannah Gray spends her days in vacationland, living in a small, quaint town on the coast of Maine. She is an avid reader of contemporary romance and is always in competition with herself to read more books every year.

During the day, she loves on her three perfect-to-her daughters and tries to be the best mom she can be. But once she tucks them in at night–okay, scratch that. Once they fall asleep next to her in her bed–because their bedrooms apparently have monsters in them–she dives into her own fantasy world, staying awake well into the late-night hours, typing away stories about her characters. As much as she loves being a wife and mom–and she certainly does love it–reading and writing are her outlet, giving her a place to travel far away while still physically being with her family.

She married her better half in 2013, and he’s been putting up with her craziness every day since. As her anchor, he’s her one constant in this insane, forever-changing world.

Kendall
My life has been an endless loop of heartache and breakup songs.
I’ve lived in fear that I’m broken and will never find the kind of love that would piece me back together into something whole.
When my boyfriend proposes, I say yes, desperate for an easy fix. For a super-glue solution.
But, on the day of my wedding, when my dad tells me to follow my heart, it doesn’t lead me down the aisle.
Instead, it takes me straight to Declan Pierce’s car—where I crash his road trip.
The more time we spend together, the more he shows me it’s okay to be broken.
With him, lyrics aren’t just words on paper.
Promises aren’t just whispers in the dark.
And having a few cracks…well, they help the light come through.
Declan
I’ve had feelings for my best friend’s sister for as long as I can remember.
Watching her jump from guy to guy, I’ve been biding my time, waiting for the right moment to tell her.
And then she does something I never thought she’d do…she gets engaged.
This is the part where I’m starting to accept that the woman I love will never be mine.
Until she jumps into my car in her wedding gown and tells me to floor it.
With Kendall in my passenger seat and the past in the rearview mirror, I plan to do whatever it takes to show her that she doesn’t need super glue.
She needs to find the beauty in the cracks.

Review – Catching Kye by Hannah Gray

Catching Kye; Florida East University #3
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: December 1, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Friends-to-Lovers/Sports/Fake Dating/Forbidden Romance

Author: Hannah Gray

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
My favorite couple in this series!

Kye and Winter may be forbidden to date, but their relationship begins as friendship and these two are just fun with a whole lot of flirty added in. That is until they cross that thin line of friends into lovers, but even then their steam is infectious, even with the secret aspect tossed in. However, their story isn’t all hearts and laughs, there is an underlying darkness that, probably because the initial story is so light and fun, carries a heavy weight and really broke my heart when it hit.

Kye is funny, a total jokester filled with sassy comebacks and a ton of innuendo. He befriends his best friends younger sister, Winter, after her boyfriend cheats on her with her best friend. Kye is feeling a little left out himself as Dane and Bama are dealing with their own issues, so stepping up to befriend Winter isn’t totally selfless, but he also hates to see her struggling and completely heartbroken over losing so much. It doesn’t hurt that he’s insanely attracted to her as well, but he also knows Bama would murder him if he crossed a line, so friends it is while Winter gets her groove back. He just never expected that he’d need her as much as she needed him.

The ending was spectacular and it was absolutely the perfect way to close out the series for these three friends.

Synopsis:
This is the third and final book in the Florida East University series. This is Kye’s story.

About Wrecked But Not Ruined

Ethan

I had everything. I was going to college and having a blast. Enjoying myself and not taking much seriously. But then, two years ago, everything changed.

A car wreck destroyed my life. It sent me into a total tailspin. I walked away, even when everyone said I wouldn’t be able to.

But I haven’t recovered from it.

The only thing I have left is my best friend, but I’m sure he’ll give up on me soon. Even so, I can’t fight the truth . . . I’m irrevocably ruined.

Knox

College is coming to an end, and I couldn’t be happier to finally start my real life.

Ethan and I had plans. So many amazing plans. And then, everything changed. He was in a horrific wreck, but he miraculously survived. Except it took a piece of him.

I’ve tried to help him get it back. Tried to get him to go to a trauma support group and come back to me.

He thinks he’s broken, but I know the real Ethan is still there. The brave, outgoing man I’ve known my entire life. And I’m going to help him see the truth. That he can overcome this.

That he may have been a little wrecked, but he wasn’t ruined.

Brandon Cannon.

A rising hockey star with a future he might not want.

My best friend since childhood—the guy I could always count on.

He could rely on me too, the girl he’ll forever see as a tomboy.

Which is why he asked me to be his wingman to get the girl he wanted.

But what he doesn’t know—can never know—is that I’ve been in love with him for as long as I can remember, and I know things about him, things he doesn’t want anyone to know.

Including me.

We escape to his cottage together, where I school the well-known player in the art of dating.

What I hadn’t expected was for him to teach me a thing or two—behind closed door.

His every touch drew me in deeper, until I was drowning in him.

Now, I can only hope he’ll see that the girl he wants might not be the one he needs—because I’m the only woman who knows who he really is and can help him re-write his future.

But what if he doesn’t?

What will become of me—us—if my very best friend, the man I love, walks away with my heart?

Review – One Night Standards by Heather M. Orgeron

One Night Standards; Booze and Bad Decisions #3
(standalone within an interconnected series)

Publication Date: November 17, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Romcom/Friends to Lovers/Rock and Roll Romance

Author: Heather M. Orgeron

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
One Night Standards contains the best book boyfriend who is swoony and sweet from cover to cover!

Lyle Livingston is the kind of guy you swoon over from chapter to chapter and basically from page to page. Lyle is the best kind of book boyfriend; loyal, attentive, supportive, loving, AND so dang dirty between the sheets, I am obsessed with him!! This book requires a big glass of ice water to cool down between all the swooning. If I didn’t like Sammi so much, I’d be totally jealous of her.

Lyle is best friends with Sammi’s brother, so they grew up together and had sparks when they were teenagers, but never acted upon them beyond spending time together. Then Lyle left when he made it into the country music industry, but five years later, when Sammi is about to marry another man Lyle is there just in the nick of time.

Marrying Lyle was always Sammi’s dream, but she never actually thought it would happen, especially when he left to pursue his dream. Who knew her actual groom would ditch her on her wedding day and Lyle would actually step in to take his place. Pinch her because she must be dreaming…or perhaps let her keep dreaming because she never wants to wake up. Mrs. Livingston has a nice ring to it.

I totally admit, I wondered where the story was going to go when Sammi and Lyle basically fell in love right from the get go, but I was so, so, so totally wrong in my thinking. I should have known that Heather would write a beautiful book with all the emotions and laughter that I totally expect from her. One Night Standards was pure fire with a great friends to lovers trope tucked right in the gooey center.

About Wrecked But Not Ruined

Ethan

I had everything. I was going to college and having a blast. Enjoying myself and not taking much seriously. But then, two years ago, everything changed.

A car wreck destroyed my life. It sent me into a total tailspin. I walked away, even when everyone said I wouldn’t be able to.

But I haven’t recovered from it.

The only thing I have left is my best friend, but I’m sure he’ll give up on me soon. Even so, I can’t fight the truth . . . I’m irrevocably ruined.

Knox

College is coming to an end, and I couldn’t be happier to finally start my real life.

Ethan and I had plans. So many amazing plans. And then, everything changed. He was in a horrific wreck, but he miraculously survived. Except it took a piece of him.

I’ve tried to help him get it back. Tried to get him to go to a trauma support group and come back to me.

He thinks he’s broken, but I know the real Ethan is still there. The brave, outgoing man I’ve known my entire life. And I’m going to help him see the truth. That he can overcome this.

That he may have been a little wrecked, but he wasn’t ruined.

Cover Reveal – Catching Kye by Hannah Gray

💗COVER REVEAL 💗

Catching Kye by Hannah Gray is coming December 1st!

This is a steamy, forbidden, friends to lovers, fake relationship, sports romance, you won’t want to miss!

Pre-order here: https://mybook.to/catchingkye

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/61404986-habit

About the book:

Everyone always says the best way to get over someone is to get under somebody else. Well, I guess I’ve never been one to believe it. Cheated on by my football-star boyfriend and betrayed by my closest friend, I’m not looking for yet another chance to get hurt. 

Kye Collins isn’t just a guy. He’s 𝘵𝘩𝘦 guy. A star on a D1 football team. The owner of a panty-melting smile and abs that’ll have you fanning yourself and tingling in places you shouldn’t. Oh … and he’s my brother’s best friend. 

When he convinces me to hang out with him, I warily take him up on his offer. After all, as long as I keep my guard up, I won’t get hurt. Besides, a friendship between a male and a female can work, right? 

What starts off as an innocent alliance becomes dicey when he suggests we fake date. It seems like a good plan. A solid scheme to help him get his mom off his back while also making my ex mad. If I can hurt the guy who caused me pain and make the mean girls at school jealous, that’s a double win. Plus, hanging out with Kye Collins is fun. 

One kiss—that’s all it takes. A kiss only meant for the eyes of those who hurt me. A kiss that’s supposed to be a big F you to those devils lurking in the shadows, watching my every move. But that same kiss makes me come alive in a way I never have. Makes it impossible for me to ignore that feelings I have whenever he is around. And it forever changes the relationship between Kye and me. 

Sometimes, tragedies bring people closer together, but in our case, it pulls us apart. But when Kye runs, I’m not far behind, ready to catch him.

This is book three in the Florida East University series.

Review – Home Advantage by Cathryn Fox

Home Advantage (Rebels) (Scotia Storms Book 4)

Home Advantage; Scotia Storms #4
(#4 within an interconnected series)

Publication Date: November 8, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Sports/Friends-to-Lovers Romance

Author: Cathryn Fox

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
A sweet, steamy, friends-to-lovers romance.

I was not expecting Daisy to have such a twist in this story, considering she has been a secondary character since the first book. While she has been “one of the guys” and plays hockey, she was a sweet surprise.

Now Brandon, he also had a surprise of his own, and OMG, he’s a total shocker given his current background of pursuing hockey and the NHL draft. I loved his secret and that Daisy was all in on helping him work out his issues, while simultaneously working on hers.

Why am I not giving these story secrets away? Because they are just tooooooo good!! They give the book ALL the wonderful moments that need to be experienced by the reader and I really don’t want to give them away, but in the meantime, know this…

Brandon and Daisy grew up together and have been friends basically forever. While Daisy has pretty much been love with Brandon for as long as she can remember, Brandon friendzoned her years ago. Daisy was truly one of the boys, until she suddenly wasn’t and that is when everything changes.

Home Advantage is a bit of a slow awakening, at least on Brandon’s part, but once his eyes are opened this book is super steamy and this couple is all in, at least for their fake dating. Anything real…is that really possible for two best friends?

I loved this addition to the Scotia Storms series and to see Daisy get her HEA.

Synopsis:
Brandon Cannon.

A rising hockey star with a future he might not want.

My best friend since childhood—the guy I could always count on.

He could rely on me too, the girl he’ll forever see as a tomboy.

Which is why he asked me to be his wingman to get the girl he wanted.

But what he doesn’t know—can never know—is that I’ve been in love with him for as long as I can remember, and I know things about him, things he doesn’t want anyone to know.

Including me.

We escape to his cottage together, where I school the well-known player in the art of dating.

What I hadn’t expected was for him to teach me a thing or two—behind closed door.

His every touch drew me in deeper, until I was drowning in him.

Now, I can only hope he’ll see that the girl he wants might not be the one he needs—because I’m the only woman who knows who he really is and can help him re-write his future.

But what if he doesn’t?

What will become of me—us—if my very best friend, the man I love, walks away with my heart?

About Keeper

Kingston Wells

I like to party. To have a good time.

Life’s too short not to. I learned that when I lost my grandpa.

He told me to have fun while I can, and I intend to.

Although sometimes when you’re having a good time, you forget others may see you as irresponsible. And sometimes you screw up.

I’ve definitely screwed up a time or two.

But I’m still determined to have fun. And along the way, I’m hoping I’ll convince my best friend, Camden, to do the same.

He’s too serious. Too focused. Too busy taking care of everyone to just relax.

And that’s where I come in.

Camden Prescott

I may only be eighteen and a senior, but I have too much on my plate to be a kid.

Too many people depend on me, but I can handle it.

I have to handle it. My mom needs my help. My little sister needs me. And Kingston, my best friend in the world—yeah, he definitely needs me.

Because while he’s busy having fun, I’m busy cleaning up his messes along with everyone else’s.

It’s not all bad though. He’s there to make sure I occasionally have fun, and I’m there for him when he needs to take life seriously.

Because that’s what I am . . .

The Keeper.
