#99 Dash Taylor. Rookie defensive end for the Boston Tomcats. 285 pounds of fast-twitch muscle. Nickname: Big D.
I’ve been sacking quarterbacks since junior high and causing trouble since I was born.
My college coach thinks I have a bad attitude, so he makes me take ballet lessons as punishment. If I don’t turn things around on the field next season, he’ll bench me. I have no idea what ballet has to do with football, but it turns out the real punishment is that the beautiful dance teacher refuses to get involved with me.
Two years later, we cross paths again, and it’s not the other team’s offensive line who brings me to my knees—it’s a hundred-pound ballerina.
She doesn’t think I’m boyfriend material, and I used to think that too.
I’ve been a beast on the field and in the bedroom, but now I’m going to prove that I can be a man for her…and for our surprise baby.
I thought I was all about the smash and dash.
But getting Charlie Bardot pregnant changed everything.

Now she’s breathing cleaner air and writing dirtier words. It’s an adjustment she’s happily getting used to.

Review – Dash by Kayley Loring and Connor Crais

Dash; Rushing the Play #2
(Standalone within an interconnected series)

Publication Date: September 15, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Romantic Comedy/Sports Romance

Author: Kayley Loring and Connor Crais

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Dash begins as sort of a Big D…but oh my heart…he is the biggest cinnamon roll. I love a book that can produce characters with growth and I’m not just talking about Dash’s muscles, while I do love how strong he is, his character is one to deeply fall in love with.

Charlie and Dash initially begin as oil and water and while we get a glimpse of their fiery past before jumping back into their present, it’s their present where I truly fell in love. Dash has major character growth and that man…sigh…he is fantastic. Once he realizes that it’s Charlotte that he wants, his entire life changes. I’m not sure he realizes consciously that she makes him a better man in his everyday life, but it’s all the little things that push him to just be better. It’s really hard not to like the big guy.

Charlotte, or Charlie as her friends call her, has always dreamed of dancing in NY. Like Dash she is driven, hard working and doesn’t give up easily. Hence, a lot of the friction between these two, but that is also what makes their love affair so spicy. She brings out the best in him, while he also does the same for her.

To reiterate, I loved, loved, loved Dash, especially when he became a father, but overall his tender moments were so sweet. The writing really reflected just how big and tough Dash was, he’s a defensive lineman in the NFL and those guys are not tiny, but when it came to caring for his loved ones it truly reflected his gentle heart and that is why this new series written with Kayley and Connor is absolutely fantastic!!

NOT JUST A CRUSH by Helena Hunting

The blustery wind pushes me through the door and causes a swirl of flakes to follow me. As soon as I’m clear of the door, she tries to close it. But the wind is strong, and she’s . . . tiny. The kind of tiny I associate with the girl on top of the cheerleader pyramid or those creepy semi-life-sized dolls they sell in department stores. It’s clear she’s using her full weight against the door, yet she’s losing the battle.
I lift a hand over her head—I don’t have to reach high to accomplish that—and push it closed. She stumbles forward a couple of steps, and her toe catches on the doormat. She recovers herself and spins around, her face a shade of pink I associate with embarrassment.
She takes three large steps to the side, putting a few feet of distance between us. She pushes her glasses up her nose and glances from the door to me and back again. “Good fucking God, are you part bear? You’re huge.” Her hands flail around in the air, then find each other, then part again.
“Maybe you’re just small?” I offer.
My breath puffs out in the air with each exhale, and so does hers. It’s freezing in here. Which explains why she’s wearing a parka, a beanie, a scarf, and a pair of giant mittens. All in matching shades of pink. She looks like a chewed-up wad of bubblegum with a face and limbs.
“Having trouble with the fire, then, Princess?” I motion to the hearth where the fire sits unlit.
She crosses her arms. “My name is Dahlia, not princess.”
“Dahlia?” I echo.
I inspect her closer. It can’t be . . .
Dahlia is not a common name. Tiny Dahlias with long, dark wavy hair and almond-shaped eyes so dark it’s nearly impossible to see where her iris ends and her pupils begin seem even more rare. But the odds seem . . . implausible.
“Yeah. Like the flower.” She pushes her glasses up her nose again with her mittened hand and goes back to crossing her arms.
And I stand there, like an idiot, and keep staring. Because it is her.
Dahlia Forest.
Seriously, that’s her name.
And I had the biggest fucking crush on her in high school.

Like seriously, the biggest fucking crush.

But I was on the football team, and she was a mathlete. We ran in different circles. I was a giant asshole with even bigger asshole friends, and she was a gorgeous nerd. One of my best friends back then, who I still talk to now, used to make fun of her all the time. It was juvenile. And dickish. I didn’t participate, but I also didn’t stop him. Which makes me just as bad, if not even worse.
So far, she hasn’t recognized me. It’s been four years. Maybe she won’t recognize me at all. Maybe I wasn’t on her radar in high school. Maybe she was too busy being a fucking genius to notice the jocks. Although she did tutor a couple of my teammates along the way.
I realize I haven’t replied to the whole flower comment or responded in general. “Looks like you had some trouble starting the fire.” I thumb over my shoulder.
“I never got the fire-making badge in Girl Scouts.” I can’t tell if she’s being sarcastic.
“Have you unpacked anything yet?” Man, my conversation skills need a serious workout.
“No, I was too busy trying to earn my fire-making badge.” Her nose is pink from the cold, and her cheeks are already flushed, but the way she ducks her head tells me she’s pretty damn embarrassed by her lack of fire- making ability.
I nod once. “All right. Well, let’s grab your bag and get you out of here.” “Out of here?” she parrots.
“Yeah. I’ll take you back to town. Set you up at the motel.” I take my gloves off because my hands are starting to sweat. The great thing about my jacket is that it keeps me warm in subzero temps. The bad part is that now that I’m no longer facing -30 degrees and a face full of snow, I’m over here sweating my balls off even though it’s pretty freaking frigid in here.
“Motel?” Her nose wrinkles. “Why can’t I stay here?”
“You can, but they’re gonna close the roads soon, and when they do that, you’ll be stuck here until they open them again.”
“Close the roads?” Apparently, she’s trying out for the role of parrot tonight.
“Yeah. Unless you missed it, there’s a blizzard happening out there. We’re getting another twelve to eighteen inches between tonight and tomorrow afternoon. If I don’t get you off the side of this mountain soon, we’re both going to be stuck here until the storm is over and they’ve had a chance to plow the roads.”
“Oh, my God. How long will that be?”

I shrug. “Could be a couple of days, could be a week.”

“A week?” Her tone is dog whistle shrill.

“It’s a big fucking storm.”

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
From snowed in escapes to sunny getaways, every story within this anthology is brand new and from some of MY favorite authors!

Here is a brief review of what’s inside this smartie romcom:

Not Just a Crush by Helena Hunting
Old high school crushes rekindle during a snowstorm. With Helena’s sense of humor and spice, this story is the perfect length to read before bed and offers the perfect amount of steam, content and quirk to make it a reading perfection!

There is Also a Dog by Kayley Loring
Jillian hates Christmas so working through it wouldn’t be a problem except when she has to vacate her apartment and isn’t allowed to actually work in her office. Escaping to an Airbnb happens to be the solution, she just needs working WiFi and all the amenities. The fact that it was rented from a hot guy with the cutest dog ever who lives just a mile down the road is a nice touch, especially when she needs extra amenities.

Attracting Aubrey by Avery Flynn
Aubrey is on a cruise with her best friends when she meets her crush, Carter Hayes. What could possibly go wrong? In this story, Avery Flynn delivers comedy, steam, and romance while sailing upon the ocean waves. Attracting Aubrey is a flaming hot read with lots of laughs, instant chemistry, improv, and smexy good times.

New Release – Good Vibrations by Kayley Loring

Title: Good Vibrations
Series: The Brodie Brothers #3
Author: Kayley Loring
Genre: Steamy Romantic Comedy
Release Date: May 26, 2022

BLURB
A former model, a grumpy lawyer, and a single dad walk into an audition for a children’s musical… They’re all Miles Brodie. It’s only cute if you aren’t the director who’s being bribed to cast his daughter.
DEAR MS. CROSS,
Re: Our discussion
1. True. Casting my daughter as the lead in your musical could be considered bribery if people find out I’m investing in it, but no one needs to know.
2. I only want to hire you as Macy’s singing coach so her vocal skills will improve.
3. Maybe if you’d spent less time surfing and more on your singing career, you wouldn’t be in this financial predicament.
4. Re. your living situation—my neighbor has a guest house. If you cast Macy as Alice, I will pay for your first three months’ rent.
Do we have a deal?
Best regards,
Miles Brodie
DEAR MR. BRODIE,
1. It absolutely is bribery, but I absolutely need that money for my production. Thanks!
2. It is very cute that you will do anything to get Macy this part, but I would only coach that sweet child as a favor to all mammals with functional hearing.
3. If I spend less time surfing, will you spend less time jogging on my beach with your shirt off?
4. You want to pay me to live next door so you don’t have to drive anywhere to frown at me?
5. I have another condition for casting Macy as Alice—you have to perform the part of the Cheshire Cat.
Purrrrrrr,
Aria

Review – Good Vibrations by Kayley Loring

60632271. sy475

Good Vibrations; Brodie Brothers #3
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: May 26, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Grumpy-Sunshine/Romantic Comedy

Author: Kayley Loring

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Sweet, fun, steamy, and totally heart melty – Good Vibrations has the perfect blend of grumpy-protective, single dad who meets his match in a sunshiny, potential-crusher-of-his-child’s dreams. So many LOL mixed with swoony moments.

Miles is a divorced, single father who is very supportive of his little girl. The only thing Macy wants most in life is to star in a musical, she only has one teeny-tiny problem, she scream SINGS. Macy is truly adorable and Miles loves her unconditionally and never wants her to stop pushing for her dreams, even if she might not be the best, which just makes him extra swoony. When Miles discovers that his three year crush, Aria Cross, is directing the next musical that Macy is auditioning for he pulls out all the stops and works his grumpy magic to make it happen.

Aria Cross may be an ex-Disney child star, but now she’s more focused on her directing child musical’s career. She’s been lusting after Miles and his shirtless running self for the past three years and when he asks to cast his daughter as Alice in her next musical, well…at first she’s taken aback, until she realizes she has an opportunity to work with the man himself…say hello to Cheshire Cat.

Not only is Miles sweetly grumpy – I know what a strange combo, but it totally works for him, plus he’s a really good dad. Aria doesn’t stand a chance around him. I mean Miles fell for her three years ago, so he never really stood a chance when it came to her bubbly personality, but can these two work with everything else that is working against them?

Join in on all the hilarious Brodie family fun, the insane texting conversations, and all the melty flirtation. This is the final Brodie brother book, but can be read as a complete standalone.

BLURB

You might think the problem would be waking up in Vegas, hungover,

next to a beautiful woman who’s wearing your boxer briefs

and finding out ya married her in the middle of an epic drunken night of festivities.

But you’d be wrong.

I, Nolan Cassidy, international charmer and maker of mischief have fallen head over heels for Cora Delaney.

I want to be married to the lass.

So you might think the problem would be that she wants an annulment.

But again you’d be wrong—stop getting it so wrong.

I, Nolan Cassidy, with my devil tongue and Irish accent, will no doubt change her mind.

Does the problem lie in that she has a son who doesn’t like me and is as clever and crafty as I?

Or that I’ve only got one month—until St. Patrick’s Day—to prove to my one true love

that I can be a good husband and father?

C’mere and I’ll tell ya…

None of that is the problem.

I’m a problem.

My boxing days may be behind me

but the fight never left me.

When I see something I want, I get it.

And nothing is going to stand in my way.

Not my new wife’s hesitation nor her son’s doubts.

So buckle up, strap in.

Because I’m no longer in the business of wanting.

I’m in the business of having.

Which is gonna make for one wild Paddy’s Day.

Review – A Very Vegas St. Patrick’s Day by Kayley Loring and Connor Crais

59954515. sy475

A Very Vegas St. Patrick’s Day; Very Holiday #3 
(An interconnected standalone)

Publication Date: February 17, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Single Mom/Romantic Comedy/Holiday Romance/Vegas Wedding

Author: Kayley Loring and Connor Crais

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Hot, steamy, and with a double shot of extra hot chemistry tossed in – Holy Smokes!!! A Very Vegas St. Patrick’s Day is my new favorite writing duo Loring-Crais book!!

The best thing about this book – Nolan, or more appropriately termed Yeslan…since Cora can never tell him no, is yummy, yummy, yummy!

Everything about this book is excellent. I loved the quick witted banter, the accent – yes, it’s totally there while reading – and all the hotness overload. This couple is fire, steam, smoke and blazing heat all rolled into one!

Then…oh yes, there’s more….Cora has a ten year old son, Ashton, who is a little devil himself, who gives Nolan a run for his money.

So let’s recap; hotness, banter, sexy accent, and adorableness. Like I said, this book has it all, LOL!

Okay, all jesting aside, this story is fun, hot, romantic, and full of family hijinx. It truly is a fantastic romantic comedy, with all the heat, plus we get a less talked about holiday in the romance genre, St. Patrick’s Day, it’s completely adorable.

Also, I have to mention this book is full of Irish limericks and blessings, be still my heart. Since my father passed I’ve missed this part of my life more than I realized and reading them here brought a huge smile to my face. Thank you for the beautiful memories.

The entire book is so well written, I could gush for hours, seriously. I loved the entire thing. Loring and Crais is fast becoming my favorite writing duo. I can’t get enough!

Synopsis:

You might think the problem would be waking up in Vegas, hungover,
next to a beautiful woman who’s wearing your boxer briefs
and finding out ya married her in the middle of an epic drunken night of festivities.
But you’d be wrong.
I, Nolan Cassidy, international charmer and maker of mischief have fallen head over heels for Cora Delaney.
I want to be married to the lass.
So you might think the problem would be that she wants an annulment.
But again you’d be wrong—stop getting it so wrong.
I, Nolan Cassidy, with my devil tongue and Irish accent, will no doubt change her mind.
Does the problem lie in that she has a son who doesn’t like me and is as clever and crafty as I?
Or that I’ve only got one month—until St. Patrick’s Day—to prove to my one true love
that I can be a good husband and father?
C’mere and I’ll tell ya…
None of that is the problem.
I’m a problem.
My boxing days may be behind me
but the fight never left me.
When I see something I want, I get it.
And nothing is going to stand in my way.
Not my new wife’s hesitation nor her son’s doubts.
So buckle up, strap in.
Because I’m no longer in the business of wanting.
I’m in the business of having.
Which is gonna make for one wild Paddy’s Day.

#12 Johnny Decker. Star quarterback for the Boston Tomcats. Two-time Super Bowl MVP…a decade ago. Nickname: Decker the Panty Wrecker.

I get tackled for a living by men who are built like rhinos. I could take the wings off a fly with a football from 30 yards away. (I wouldn’t, but I could.) Being a veteran quarterback means I’m a mentally alert, fine-tuned athletic machine who can make split-second decisions.
It’s my job to anticipate what’s going to happen next and adapt. But I couldn’t have anticipated the death of our beloved team owner.

His estranged daughter Hannah Strong is a finance nerd from New York. She knows less than nothing about football. Know what she didn’t anticipate? Inheriting the Boston Tomcats.
She’s stubborn, uptight, infuriating, and wrong about absolutely everything—from pizza to how to run my team. And I don’t want to talk about how good she looks in a skirt. Or daydream about how good she’d look out of it.

Really, I don’t.

I’m not Decker the Panty Wrecker anymore—I’ve changed.

I can’t stop arguing with her.

Or thinking about her.

I thought I had a winning play.

But Hannah Strong changed everything.

Review – Decker by Kayley Loring and Connor Crais

59666456. sy475

Decker; Changing the Play 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: January 13, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Sports Romance/Romantic Comedy

Author: Kayley Loring and Connor Crais

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Sweetly adorable while still intensely hot. Loring’s brilliant comedy shined throughout this fantastic sports romance while her new co-writing partner, Connor Crais, only increased the awesomeness of the overall plot.

You’d think these two have been writing together for years this book was so well done. There was never a point I thought, this sounds exactly like a man, or this is specifically Kayley’s writing. It’s flawless and perfectly executed. All the charm, cuteness, and loveable qualities that bring me back to Loring’s books over and over again was still there, but there was also this extra sprinkle on top that I’m guessing was the Connor factor.  I’m going with that and I’m sticking to it.

John Decker, the reformed panty wrecker, since his main focus is truly on football and not ravaging all the panties in Boston like when he was a young rookie. His character is likeable from start to finish. He’s a leader on and off the field and he reminded me a lot of great players across generations and in other various sports as well. Whomever the inspiration was for Loring and Crais to draw from, they did a fantastic job on creating and drawing out a well rounded QB1. It’s been years since I’ve asked questions and really paid attention to specifics in football. It’s on my TV on the weekends mostly as background noise, but Decker even refreshed the old spirit in this gal and I found myself paying more attention to the TV than I have in years.

I adored Hannah Strong and loved that she was a woman willing to step into a man’s world and never give up. That strength in character is a trait that more women need to see and experience in everyday life and it’s slowly changing over time, but I love that it’s also happening in the fictional world too. Women are still a minority when it comes to being owners of sports teams. Hannah had a big job in finance before she came over to the sports world, so she had analytics behind her. What she didn’t have was any knowledge of the sport she was taking over, however, she did have the panty wrecker willing to give her a hand…with several things.

These two were pure fire from the beginning and their chemistry never let up. I also loved Hannah’s quest for knowledge and her undying, relentless pursuit to never quit. No matter how tough something was she wasn’t going to stop. That is the same ethics that professional athletes have and it’s ultimately what wins them over as well, especially the QB1.

Is there some drama, of course, but are there lots of quirky, hot, fun times too…yes!! This book brings it all, along with lots of football.

An actor, a model, and a younger man walk into a therapist’s office… They’re all Dylan Brodie. It’s only funny if you aren’t the single mom therapist he can’t stop flirting with.

Dear Mr. Brodie,

I hope this email finds you well.

Your well-being and personal growth are of the utmost importance to me, as a therapist.

As such, I have decided it is in your best interest to continue individual therapy with another practitioner.

This is due to the potential for boundaries being crossed between us.

Attached is a list of colleagues I would recommend for you.

Sincerely,

Scarlett Shepard, MS, MFT

Dear Scarlett,

Cool.

Consider our sessions terminated.

Now I can tell you how beautiful you are and how attracted I am to you.

Let’s start crossing boundaries over dinner tonight.

You’ll say it would be unethical, and I’ll point out that we’ve only had a few sessions.

You’ll cite the age difference, and I’ll tell you how hot it is that you’re six years older than me.

You’ll say you’re a mom, and I’ll remind you that I think your son is awesome.

We don’t have to discuss my former attachments to former co-stars ever again.

This is due to the fact that clearly my only personality issue is that I’m irresistible.

Yours in well-being and personal growth,

Dylan Brodie, W.M.H.T.A.T.Y.E.H. (Way More Handsome and Talented Actor Than Your Ex-Husband)

BLURB

An actor, a model, and a younger man walk into a therapist’s office… They’re all Dylan Brodie. It’s only funny if you aren’t the single mom therapist he can’t stop flirting with.

Dear Mr. Brodie,

I hope this email finds you well.

Your well-being and personal growth are of the utmost importance to me, as a therapist.

As such, I have decided it is in your best interest to continue individual therapy with another practitioner.

This is due to the potential for boundaries being crossed between us.

Attached is a list of colleagues I would recommend for you.

Sincerely,

Scarlett Shepard, MS, MFT

Dear Scarlett,

Cool.

Consider our sessions terminated.

Now I can tell you how beautiful you are and how attracted I am to you.

Let’s start crossing boundaries over dinner tonight.

You’ll say it would be unethical, and I’ll point out that we’ve only had a few sessions.

You’ll cite the age difference, and I’ll tell you how hot it is that you’re six years older than me.

You’ll say you’re a mom, and I’ll remind you that I think your son is awesome.

We don’t have to discuss my former attachments to former co-stars ever again.

This is due to the fact that clearly my only personality issue is that I’m irresistible.

Yours in well-being and personal growth,

Dylan Brodie, W.M.H.T.A.T.Y.E.H. (Way More Handsome and Talented Actor Than Your Ex-Husband)

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.

Review – Attachment Theory by Kayley Loring

58740490. sy475

Attachment Theory; The Brodie Brothers #2 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: October 7, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Romantic Comedy

Author: Kayley Loring

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Grinning, giggling, smiling, snorting, let me count ALL the ways that Kayley had me enjoying Attachment Theory. I can guarantee that every positive and happy emotion flew out of my mouth and showed on my face while reading, it was absolutely delightful.

Attachment Theory is fun, light hearted, and contains one of Kayley’s swooniest hero’s to date. It was easy to get attached to Dylan Brodie, although I admit I fall pretty easy for ALL of Loring’s leading men, but Dylan – by far – was the dreamiest and easiest one to fall for.

Dylan Brodie is a man who loves love. I’m not talking about in the sheets, nakey time love, although he is a master at that as well (didn’t I mention he’s full-total swoon worthy). No, Dylan is a relationship guy. He is a guy who likes to be needed, a guy who likes affection, and who wants purpose with the girl he’s dating. To top off his superior love skills, Dylan also likes his family, even when they pick on him, he’s laid back, easy going, and just extremely likeable. Dylan Brodie is the total package and I totally adored him 10,000%, except for one teeny tiny flaw. He’s a bit of a serial dater, and his relationships only last as long as his acting jobs do. Dylan has a habit of falling for his leading co-star, but once you get to know Dylan, I think that flaw might be based more on the shallowness of the women he dates and not due to Dylan himself. I could be biased, but I’ll stand by my decision.

Scarlett Shephard is kind of a hotmess who is also extremely likable. She’s a single mom with the most adorable little boy, Noah. While Scarlett is just trying to keep her life together and Noah on track to do his homework, her son unknowingly befriends Dylan when Dylan visits Noah’s school for career day. They bond over a lost kitten, whom they name Mr. Noodles, and since Dylan is basically a child himself their friendship is born and Mr. Noodles comes home to live with Dylan. Scarlett unknowingly becomes Dylan’s therapist, is fate playing her hand with the Shephard family? I believe so. I love fate. Dylan is looking to solve his serial relationship problems, but it’s hard to help the gorgeous man when they can barely contain their attraction to one another, which is a huge ethical problem for Scarlett. Can the issue be solved if Dylan finds another therapist or will Scarlett dump him before they ever really dated?

This story is so funny and filled with tons of chemistry, it was impossible to put down. Add in hilarious, meddling parents on both Scarlett and Dylan’s sides of the family, meddling texts from Dylan’s siblings, and so much humor from beginning to end, I loved it extra hard!! Do yourself a favor and pick up this book because Kayley Loring never disappoints.

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

Review – Funny Business by Kayley Loring

57846811. sy475

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.

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.

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.

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.
