Review – Saving Silver by Xavier Neal

Book cover for Saving Silver (The Draak Legacy #1) by Xavier Neal

Saving Silver; The Draak Legacy #1
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: September 23, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Romantic Comedy/Paranormal Romance

Author: Xavier Neal

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Dragons, mermaids, and genies, oh my!!

Dae was awakened to a magical world when a dragon shifter arrived in her veterinarian office one evening. The call to become his mate was strong between the two as Silver/Zilveren was simultaneously battling forces that were capturing ancient dragons throughout the city.

This is Xavier’s first jump into the paranormal world and I give her a solid 4.5 stars for tackling a new genre. The plot contained a lot of action and suspense and the chemistry still flowed between the two characters even when you threw in all of the paranormal oddities into the mix. Well done for this first jump into the fantastical realm.

I really enjoyed the different species of magical creatures that came up vs. the typical paranormal creatures that always seemed to be introduced in every other fantasy book I come across . There were also new spins on old species which I rather enjoyed as well. Once again, this showed Xavier’s creativity for tackling this new genre.

This is the first book in a new dragon series and there were several creatures introduced, like Z’s brothers. As the series progresses, the brothers and their mate matches will be intriguing to learn more about.

Synopsis:

From best-selling author Xavier Neal comes a brand-new, laugh-out-loud, paranormal romance you don’t want to miss…

I swear, one minute I’m dozing off during the night shift – don’t judge me – and the next I’m being told I’m Fate Mated to an ancient dragon.

An ancient dragon I couldn’t help but save when he woke me up out of the aforementioned slumber – again, don’t judge me.

Now this same ancient dragon – that I’m apparently destined to be with – is doing everything he can to win me over, because it’s up to me whether or not he’ll live the rest of his life in absolute agony or absolute bliss.

Oh, and let’s not forget the fact we’re being chased by elves, working with a grumpy Griffin, and have to rescue some poor kidnapped dragon before an evil corporation kills it.

Ugh.

Any chance this is all some crazy dream that I can’t wake up from?

No?

Well, can’t blame this human for asking.

Review – Mama’s Boy by Avery Flynn

57623346. sy475

Mama’s Boy; Last Man Standing #1
(An interconnecting standalone within a series)

Publication Date: September 27, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Romantic Comedy

Author: Avery Flynn

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
So many adorable moments and crossover references. I loved the meddling family’s, fun dates, and just so many LOL moments to be had.

Even though Fiona and Dixon may have grown up in opposite worlds, they are more alike than they realize and it’s only when they spend time together, peeling back the lies and layers, that they truly discover their true selves and really enjoy each other to their fullest.

The outstanding moments came in with the blend of the large Hartigan family and the Beckett’s. While the Beckett’s is smaller, they are no less meddling in family affairs. Dixon and his cousins come up with a dare, while highly intoxicated of course, to be the last man standing in love, before the end of the year. The dare is, somewhat childish, but the Beckett’s never back down from a challenge and Dixon is by far one of the worst when it comes to never losing. He has to win at all costs, but he also sees no problem with this particular challenge. Love is something he never plans to do again so winning will be easy.

Dixon has been married and is currently a widow. He’s vowed never, ever to fall in love again. Been there, done that, never wants to feel that kind of pain again, but he also never loses. He has to win at all costs. He plans to take on this dare, six dates, no falling in love, no problem. That is until he meets Fiona Hartigan.

Why would Fiona ever date Dixon, especially knowing it’s all for a bet? She wants revenge. Dixon is the CEO of a cosmetics company and he’s dismissed her three times for a meeting. Three…stood up, dissing her, ignoring her times.This is her chance for an in to present her Nana’s products. She just needs to play it cool, help him win his bet and then she can ask him for any favor. It’s a win-win for both of them. That is until she starts falling for the man vs. the CEO tycoon.

With lots of steam, adorable meddling family moments, and the best reason of all…a hot mama’s boy…this book is a win-win-win.

Synopsis:

Top three lies about mama’s boys:

1. That we don’t know what we want. That one is straight up BS. I know exactly what I want—to win this bet with my cousins by any means necessary even if it means finding the worst possible date in all of Harbor City and agreeing to whatever she asks in exchange for her pretending to fall for me.

2. That we are soft, little wimps. Yeah, you don’t get to be CEO of a multibillion dollar company by letting other people take advantage of you. So as soon as I realize my date Fiona Hartigan isn’t exactly who she appears to be, there’s nothing that will stop me from figuring out the truth—no matter how many dates it takes to unravel that mystery.

3. That we don’t know how to kiss. Oh yes we do. The only problem is that once I start kissing Fiona, I don’t want to stop and I have to because we’ve already agreed that all of this is temporary.

Now I’m the guy that every woman wants to bring home to mom—except for the woman I’m fake dating and falling in love with for real.

Each book in the Last Man Standing series is STANDALONE:
* Mama’s Boy
* Neanderthal
* Mansplainer

Cover Reveal - 2021, New Releases

Cover Reveal – Attachment Theory by Kayley Loring

Kayley Loring has revealed the cover for Attachment Theory!

Releasing October 7, 2021

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)

Multicast duet-style audiobook will release not long after the kindle version. Performed by Zachary Webber and Emily Woo Zeller, featuring Teddy Hamilton, Jason Clarke, Mackenzie Cartwright, Connor Crais and Emma Wilder.

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 – Romance by the Book by Sarah Ready

58604823. sy475

Romance by the Book; Soul Mates in Romeo #3 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: September 14, 2021

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

Author: Sarah Ready

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I completely lose myself in Sarah Ready’s books and I never want to return to reality. I lose all track of time and space once I begin reading and I hate leaving her worlds every single time.

Romance by the Book is another fantastic Ready hit! The push-pull, love-hate chemistry of William and Jessie is pure soul mate gold! From the time this couple first met at the young age of eight until they finally admit their undying love their story is full of all the wonderful  romcom classics that unfortunately go horribly wrong.

Romance by the Book is fun, flirty, and full of chemistry, but it also has wonderful moments of heart. Sarah writes about love – real lasting love from the perspective of the residents of Romeo. This is a beautiful reminder about why people fall in love and then continue to stay in love. It’s a story that takes a stroll down those butterfly feelings in the very beginning of a relationship, but then continues through the ups and down, through sickness and health, etc… and what it means to still be together after fifty years together as a couple. What is the secret formula to love or is being a soul mate enough? I love how each couple that William and Jessie meet impart a bit of wisdom or advice to what the secret is.

William and Jessie have known each other for twenty years by the time they both venture down this path and a lot of the fun in this story revolves around Jessie getting Gavin, William’s twin brother, to actually fall into her classic romcom traps, while William does everything in his power to keep that from happening.  Oh, there is a lot of backstory into why she wants Gavin and why William is cast as the villian, but the backstory is what gives this book all the extra feels. They both have their preconceived notions about one another, or even a fantasy, but what may be going wrong could actually be going right.

I continually love returning to this small town that is all about love. This book was a brilliant story about redemption, forgiveness and following your heart. I can’t wait to return once again and see who the next soul mate match will be.

Synopsis:

Welcome to Romeo, NY where it’s not a matter of if you find your soul mate, only when.

Book-loving librarian Jessie has loved Gavin Williams for practically her whole life. So when a psychic predicts that Gavin is Jessie’s one fated soul mate, she’s ecstatic.
There’s just one itty bitty little problem.
Gavin’s engaged to marry another woman.

Jessie has hated William for as long as she’s loved his brother. William is grump to Jessie’s sunshine, stand-offish to her extrovert, cold to her warm. And when William learns of Jessie’s plan to derail his brother’s engagement he swears that he’ll do anything to stop her.
But after William and Jessie (unwillingly) share a dance…a romantic dinner…a kiss…Jessie starts to wonder, is William actually her soul mate? Or is this just another one of his games?
She can’t tell, because this romance definitely isn’t going by the book.

Natalie’s made a career out of screwing up all over her hometown. But it’s redemption time, and she’s putting on her big girl panties to make sure this year’s bridal festival goes off without a hitch. Even if it means she has to play nice with the man who broke her fairy tale.

#2 Matched

A country music heartthrob and his long-lost love walk into a wedding…

Will Truitt grew up living the saddest kind of country song. Now, though, as superstar Billy Brenton, his life is perfect. Or so people think. But he hasn’t been able to write a decent song in months. Crashing a wedding in a quirky little bridal-obsessed town is supposed to provide inspiration to get his career back on track. Instead, all he finds are regrets when he comes face-to-face with the woman who got away, taking his crushed heart with her. 

Lindsey Castellano gave up on love a long time ago. As a cutthroat divorce attorney on the outskirts of a town devoted to brides, weddings, and happily ever after, she’s honed her skills at avoiding love, commitment, and inevitable heartbreak. Or so she thought until Will Truitt reappears in her life.

When Lindsey shattered Will’s heart fifteen years ago, she’d been a sorority girl on her way to the top. He’d been a lowly janitor with a dream. Now he’s on top of the world, and she’s the last person he should need or want.

But she’s the only person who has ever inspired his music. And he’s the only man she’s never been able to forget. Have the years made them wiser, stronger, and better able to love, or this time, will they simply crash and burn harder?

#3 Smittened

A Bad Boy, a Good Girl, and Ice Cream! 

Dahlia Mallard has finally found her destiny—running an ice cream shop in Bliss, the happiest bridal town in the Midwest. Problem is, her heart is bigger than her bank account. After spending her last dime on a less-than-worthy cause, she needs a serious influx of cash to get through the winter. Her last-ditch effort? Convincing country music superstar Billy Brenton to attend the risqué flavor-tasting event she’s planned to boost sales. But the closest she can get to Billy is his drummer, the womanizing Mikey Diamond. 

Mikey loves the ladies, and he makes no secret of it. But he’s not such a fan of this town devoted to weddings, love, and marriage. And he’s even less of a fan of people using him to get to Billy. When circumstances land Mikey in Dahlia’s house as her new roommate, though, all his caution—and all his interest in any other single ladies—flies out the window. Dahlia’s quirky and funny and, unlike his usual women, she doesn’t tolerate any of his baloney. But when Mikey discovers that Dahlia, too, is using him to get close to Billy, will he take the chance to be her hero instead, or will he revert to his manwhore ways?

He’s the Spare Heir of Bliss’s most famous jewelry shop
Max Gregory’s family is best known for creating and displaying the world’s most cursed diamond ring, but here in the bridal capital of the world, Max is best known for having a cursed love life. Not that he believes in curses. Or he didn’t, until he met Merry.

She’s the daughter of a notorious jewel thief
Merry Silver’s parents have wreaked havoc on her life. After her last romantic disaster—thanks, Daddy—she’s fleeing the country for a chance at normal. But first, she has to avoid her favorite ex-boyfriend while she gets her mom married off. Again.

And they’re about to get a second chance at love

Max was horrified when he discovered why Merry disappeared last year. Now she’s back in Bliss for a wedding, and her father may be after his family’s most prized possession. But is it the diamond Max is worried about? Or is he afraid of losing the only woman who’s ever made him want to settle down?

Either way…the family jewels are in danger.

#6 Spiced

Dueling neighbors, baby fever, fake boyfriends, and pizza… Life in Bliss has never been better!

Pepper Blue wants a baby. Forget the husband. She’s better at training men to be good husbands for other women than she is at getting one herself, so she’s doing this on her own.

But she hasn’t exactly shared the news with her family, and they’re determined to find her a date to the next family wedding. A date that won’t ditch her for one of her sisters or cousins. This time.

Which means Pepper Blue needs a fake boyfriend. A fake boyfriend that she has no chance of actually falling in love with. A fake boyfriend like her obnoxious neighbor.

Tony Cross is a pizza god with a sausage problem. He’s putting on a good show—a different woman at his house every night, flirting with all the right customers, flexing his muscles when called upon—but since his divorce, his meat has been more on the undercooked side. If you know what he means.

Except, unfortunately, when it comes to his annoyingly perfect, always put together, too good for him neighbor. Pepper Blue. Who is not a viable candidate for fixing his “little problem.” 

So he’s not sure why he’s coming to her rescue, pretending to be her boyfriend to save her from a bad date at his pizza joint. He just knows it’s fun. And it irritates her. And it turns out, she might be able to help his flagging pizza sales as much as she’s helping his flagging… you know.

So long as this is just business, he’s happy to keep pushing her buttons. 

All night long, if he has to.

Blurb:

From best-selling author Xavier Neal comes a brand-new, laugh-out-loud, paranormal romance you don’t want to miss…

I swear, one minute I’m dozing off during the night shift – don’t judge me – and the next I’m being told I’m Fate Mated to an ancient dragon.

An ancient dragon I couldn’t help but save when he woke me up out of the aforementioned slumber – again, don’t judge me.

Now this same ancient dragon – that I’m apparently destined to be with – is doing everything he can to win me over, because it’s up to me whether or not he’ll live the rest of his life in absolute agony or absolute bliss.

Oh, and let’s not forget the fact we’re being chased by elves, working with a grumpy Griffin, and have to rescue some poor kidnapped dragon before an evil corporation kills it.

Ugh.

Any chance this is all some crazy dream that I can’t wake up from?

No?

Well, can’t blame this human for asking.

Excerpt

After two days as his bodyguard, I was ready to throttle my principal my own damn self. 

I was also covered in more sweat and filth than I’d been on my worst day ever in Afghanistan. 

The duchess, meanwhile, seemed as pristine as the moment we’d landed, of course—and unfairly fucking gorgeous, not that that mattered. But then again, he hadn’t been the one schlepping all of the supplies on and off buses, up and down half-broken stairs, and into a stifling storage room at the back of the small medical building where we’d be spending the next month of our lives.

No, that privilege had been all mine ever since he’d brilliantly pulled the “grandfather card” on me. It was a card he’d been slapping down at least once an hour since we’d left Tennessee.

“Grandfather would be upset if I got a hernia.”

“Pretty sure my grandfather wouldn’t want me coming home after only a day because I strained my back hauling boxes around.”

“I would hate for you to get in trouble with your boss if I slipped and fell into that rocky ditch.”

“I wonder what my grandfather would think about a former Marine who was afraid of a little physical labor.”

That had been the straw that had broken the camel’s back, as I’m sure he’d intended. You didn’t throw down a challenge to someone’s service branch like that. It just wasn’t done.

Besides, hauling his shit kept my hands too busy to throttle the fucker… or to kiss him. And that was becoming more and more necessary as this interminable day wore on. I had thought being a jerk to him at his grandfather’s house would have helped me keep my distance from him. It would be easier not to be tempted by the beautiful, successful man if he hated me.

But instead of being an asshole back to me, he was an enticing kind of passive-aggressive. He acted like he was sweet as pie while he pursed his lips in false disappointment for having to force me to do all the grunt work.

The doctor was diabolical. And it only made me want him more. I’d watched him at the gala. The adorable way he joked with the bartender and the kind manner he had with the locals were enough to attract my notice even before I’d discovered he was my principal on this job.

But he was off-limits, so I needed to shut my attraction to him down and shove it away if I wanted to stay on my boss’s good side.

As I re-entered the main room of the clinic, I heard Carter’s cultured voice speaking to Eriko, the man who’d welcomed us to the Doctors Across Continents facility in the rural town of Gelada. “No, no, getting here on our own was no problem! Mr. Riggs—oh, and please make sure you call him Mr. Riggs, because he really enjoys that—that man is never happier than when he’s useful. Carrying things is literally his favorite activity! Many a time I’ve tried to encourage him, ‘Mr. Riggs, please put down the box! That’s too heavy!’ but he simply refuses. ‘I’m enjoying myself too much, Dr. Rogers!’ he’ll say, and then he’ll pick up more boxes. So by all means, if you have heavy things to be moved, please don’t hesitate to ask.”

Eriko murmured a reply I couldn’t hear over the gritting of my teeth, and Carter laughed lightly.

“Oh, no. He’s not really my manservant, per se. More like a man who serves as… my assistant. And of course he’ll be happy to help transport any patients who can’t get here on their own! I daresay he’d enjoy the challenge. A few more notches on his heavy-things-I’ve-carried belt! He’s good for the physical tasks, not so much the…” He glanced up at me innocently when my boots made a sound on the floor. “Oh, speaking of the devil. Mr. Riggs, I was just telling Eriko that you’d love to help retrieve any invalid patients who need help getting to the center. Isn’t that right?”

The look on his face begged for a solid love tap from my fist. But at the same time, the look in his eyes—teasing, intensely intelligent, just like he’d been at the bar that night at the Licking-Nuthatch Gala—made me want to tap… other parts of him. Parts that would land me in serious trouble with Champ or possibly on the unemployment line, if my distraction didn’t land us in danger first.

I could not afford to like this guy.

“I think it makes more sense to stay here and assist you, Doctor. Remember the problems you’ve been having with your…” I glanced at Eriko with a grimace. “Digestion? I’d hate to leave you alone in case it comes roaring back.”

Carter’s eyes narrowed the slightest bit. I’d made up the part about the digestion problems. 

Or, okay, I hadn’t made them up so much as transferred them from me to him.

“Yes, right,” he said, rather than correcting me. “You do like to clean the toilets as soon as I’m finished. Thank you for the reminder.” He turned back to Eriko. “Such a helpful boy. Don’t know what I’d do if he fell off the side of a cliff. Or whatever. Anyway, we should be ready to begin receiving patients at seven tomorrow morning. Hopefully we can prioritize the people who need to get to work.”

As Carter  listened to the local man, who at this point looked like a deer caught in confused headlights, I got the lay of the land. We were in a fairly large room, maybe twenty by thirty feet. The building was made out of cement blocks, which actually provided a little break from the heat of the day. Large industrial fans that looked like they were several generations older than Eriko blew from two corners of the room, creating some much-needed ventilation. Two windows on either end of the room were covered with thick iron bars for security, and there was a similar metal security door on the front and back of the building. They were currently propped open to keep the air moving. Several locals had already poked their heads in and asked if the clinic was open yet.

“The bedroom is just there,” Eriko said, gesturing to the other door at the back of the building. I glanced over at the small room, replaying his sentence in my mind until the word “bedroom” turned plural from wishful thinking. “There is a pallet on the floor for your helper.”

I tilted my head at him. Was he trolling me? 

Carter’s sparkling eyes suggested Eriko was being sincere. “Excellent! I’m sure Mr. Riggs will appreciate your kindness.”

Eriko looked very pleased. He informed Carter that someone from the community would be stopping by with our dinner and we were welcome to spend the rest of the evening setting up for tomorrow’s clinic.

“We are very grateful you are here. The people of Gelada have to travel very far to see a doctor. Many of them do not have money for the bus. When you come with your supplies and medicines… well, we are truly blessed.”

Carter’s face softened. Suddenly, I could see the doctor behind the snarky duchess. “It’s my pleasure. Thank you for having us.”

As soon as the local man was gone, closing the outer door and making sure Carter locked it from the inside, Carter’s smile disappeared.

“Aw. Someone looks like he’s having a grumpy day,” Carter remarked with fake sympathy as he passed me. “What’s wrong, Mr. Riggs? Not enough box carrying for you?”

“Just thinking that this pallet looks like it’s going to hurt your back.” I folded my arms over my chest. “Might consider hitting up the med cabinet before hitting the hay, Duchess.”

Carter didn’t even turn around and look at me. He simply said, “Duchesses don’t sleep on pallets, Mr. Riggs. This is well-known.”

Genre/Tropes: Doctor/Security/Romcom/MM Romance

Author: Lucy Lennox and May Archer

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars4.5 stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Both of these authors are new authors to me and boy, did I jump into one zany book filled with fun, suspense, and two hot heros.

Dr. Carter Rogers is working in South America for a doctor without borders type operation and his grandfather insists on protection, which is a good thing considering the sweet, caring doc gets kidnapped to help an infamous cartel drug lord for his failing health.

Riggs is highly overprotective, but even he can’t stop Carter from helping others. It’s why he likes the guy, but he shouldn’t get involved with the man he’s hired to protect, but highly charged situations and one highly charged doctor make it almost impossible to resist. Can Riggs get them rescued before the drug lord ends Carter’s services?

There are a lot of crazy situations these two find themselves in, several suspenseful ones too, and together these two are also sweet and steamy. It’s quite the bag of mish-mash romantic romcom, but somehow it all works.

Jump into this zany world and get hijacked with Riggs and Carter.

Synopsis:

Renowned cardiologist Carter Rogers is used to having things under control. His life, his prestigious reputation, his career, his future.

Things he can’t control this time around:

• His meddling grandfather

• Being the meat in a feuding cartel sandwich

• Getting kidnapped by a monologuing drug lord

•Falling for the very hot, very mouthy ex-soldier from his past

In short, Carter’s peaceful, well-planned life has been… hijacked.

Publication Date: October 1, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Contemporary Romance/Romcom

Author: Cathy Yardley

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I connected to this book on a lot of levels.  I loved both characters and empathized with them, but more than anything I loved how they brought their unique brands together to collaborate and create something that both of their audiences could enjoy. Uniquely brilliant!

Lily and Tobin are both influencers on YouTube. While what they vlog about are completely different things, Tobin is more of a gamer and unique commentator on random events and Lily is into beauty and fashion, how in the world could these two worlds ever combine to form a partnership in a collaboration? Especially when they can hardly stand to be in the same room together for a few minutes. It’s actually that premise that pulls their viewers in and makes the clicks and comments roll out. Fiery chemistry that began long ago when they used to banter back in high school. Would they kill each other or make out like mad?

The entire concept pulled me because honestly, I had to know that answer just like their viewers. I seriously wanted to know what these two were going to do to entertain two entirely different vlogging audiences and also if Lily and Tobin were going to take things further. There was no creativity left behind because what these two came up with was pure brilliance!! Every moment between Lily and Tobin was fantastic.

Not only were these two vloggers a unique collaboration, but it also ended up changing the trajectory of both of their lives. Is there love involved…it wouldn’t be a romance if somebody didn’t fall, right? But, more than that, these two completed the other more than they ever thought possible.

When they should have ended up killing each other, they end up…well not. It’s sweet and funny and all things fun that I love in a great book. I’ll definitely be picking up another Cathy Yardley book again.

Synopsis:

From award-winning author Cathy Yardley comes Love, Comment, Subscribe, a fun, feisty romance about high school frenemies turned unlikely collaborators.

Back in high school, Lily Wang wanted to be popular, but she considered herself lucky to be part of a tight group of oddballs and honors students called the Nerd Herd. Now, at twenty-eight, she feels like she’s finally on the cusp of succeeding as a beauty influencer—if she can hit five million subscribers, brands will take notice and she could get her own makeup line.

Fellow Nerd Herd alum Tobin Bui has had a lot of success as a YouTube gamer. But the road to online stardom has been rocky. First, he disappointed his parents by dropping out of college, and now, after years of pranks, skits, and playthroughs, he’s struggling to come up with new content to satisfy his ever-growing fan base. His agents say he needs cross-audience appeal, a new twist.

When Nerd Herd frenemy Lily approaches Tobin about teaming up to do a video to bolster her brand and reinvigorate his, he agrees. But when their first collab video goes viral, their relationship heats up too. With the whole internet watching, will these two former misfits finally realize they’re perfect together?

The Society #StalkerProblems; The Society #1 
(#1 in a new series, interconnected to other worlds)

Publication Date: August 12, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Romantic Contemporary Romance

Author: Ivy Smoak

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A quirky, interconnected, new series by Ivy Smoak. Crazy, awkward, and just plain relatable, Ash/Raven Black, is my #spiritanimal.

The Society is insanely funny and outlandishly full of quirky “did I just read that” moments.  Ash’s friendships and path to love, especially after an awful divorce, pave the way through this wonderful book.

Ash embodies so much awkwardness that lives in everyone. Meaning, we’ve all had a moment where something flies out of your mouth that we wish we could take back, or that moment where we bend down to pick something up and then hit our head on the desk on our way back up. Pure mortification, right? Ash finds herself in these moments on a daily basis and lives in constant panic of finding herself in these situations which seems to make them even worse. Her anxiety over the possibility of landing in a dumpster, or a centipede crawling on her or any number of other anxious driven moments is quite humorous in her adorable awareness of these fears.

Ash spends the majority of the book going back and forth between stalking and calling the man she’s stalking her stalker. Didn’t I mention she’s quirky? Well, the man she’s stalking or being stalked by is Tanner/Ryder Storm. He is quite the odd duck himself if you read Matchmaker. These two certainly seem like a match made in heaven. Their oddities fitting into each others grooves in the best way possible. However, there is still so much about Tanner that we don’t discover as his secrets and mysterious ways continue to pile up.

Ash may be a hotmess, but she appreciates Tanner’s eccentricities. These two are so much fun together, but there is always a feeling of- is he telling her the truth? While it’s super important to find the person who matches your weirdness, is he her forever person? With a potential second suitor in the mix (he’s super hot too and packing some heat), is Ash too distracted by Tanner’s stalker ways or is she stalking him…anyway…who is Ash’s forever person, and what really happens at this mysterious club behind all those closed doors? I can’t wait for more Ash and her quirkiness to continue in the next book.

The Society is an interconnected story to Ivy’s other worlds, but I wouldn’t say you need to read those books first to completely understand them, but reading Matchmaker would certainly enhance your experience as you get a look at Tanner’s uniqueness and a first hand look at the incident Ash frets over throughout the entire book. However, The Society can be read as a complete standalone as it focuses on Ash and the people she associates with; her friends, co-workers, Tanner, and eventually the members of The Society and Ivy does a great job at going over the incident so you won’t miss a thing.

The only warning I would give; don’t drink anything while reading this book because you will most likely spit it out while laughing. There is hardly a moment or chapter where I wasn’t laughing. Sit back and enjoy!

BLURB:

3 influences.

2 opposites.

1 vacation.

When Warren McGuire and Katy Horn bump into each other for the first time since his youngest brother’s wedding, the last thing he expects them to do is hook up.

It doesn’t take long for his insecurities to appear; however, to his surprise, they don’t send her running.

He doesn’t send her running.

For once in his over-planned life, Warren may have actually found a woman who wants him as much he wants her.

Too bad that it’s only supposed to be a fling.

Too bad that they live in very separate states.

Too bad that they live totally different lives.

Will Warren do what it takes to make this unlikely match work for the long run, or will he leave it behind for something more picnic perfect?

New Release – Mister Know-It-All by Amélie S. Duncan

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Mister Know-It-All
A Cocky Hero Club Novel
Author: Amélie S. Duncan
Genre:Romantic Comedy
Release Date: August 8, 2021

Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward are excited to bring you the Cocky Hero Club: original works from various authors inspired by Keeland and Ward’s New York Times bestselling Cocky Bastard series.
BLURB

What’s a girl to do when she discovers that her boss/boyfriend (I don’t need a lecture, thank you very much!) is a cheating windbag?
Dump him and quit her job, of course.
After that, it was supposed to be the Summer of Me—a totally self-indulgent few months.
Except that I met a drop-dead gorgeous Viking with a bossy attitude.
We clashed on his arrogance and crassness, but geek bonded over Star Wars and Star Trek.
He offered himself as a no-strings-attached candidate for my get-my-groove-back sex plan, and I left because he already had a girlfriend, even if they were on a break.
But I couldn’t stop thinking about him.
I really, really needed to find someone less complicated, but he infiltrated my thoughts.
He was hot, after all (And his towel might have slipped on purpose.) Seriously hot.
No matter how many times I decided not to pursue anything with him, he kept showing a softer side of himself. 
But we couldn’t keep going like that, neither here nor there.
Some decisions had to be made. 
One that could change everything.
If someone had told me how my Summer of Me would end? I’d never have believed them.
But I regret nothing. 

Mister Know-It-All is a steamy enemies to lovers romantic comedy inspired by Stuck-Up Suit.

Review – Hat Trick by Coralee June and Carrie Gray

Hat Trick 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: August 5, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Romantic Comedy/Sports Romance

Author: Coralee June and Carrie Gray

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

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 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.

Did I mention motorboating? LOL!! It’s so funny, but Peyton will need brain bleach to forget it.

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!

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

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.

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.

Cover Reveal - 2021, New Releases

Cover Reveal – First Hate by Denise Grover Swank and AR Casella

Love at First Hate, an all new enemies to lovers standalone rom com from New York Times bestselling author Denise Grover Swank and USA Today bestselling author A.R. Casella is coming August 12th and we have the fabulous cover!

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?

New Release – The Grumpy Player Next Door by Pippa Grant

RELEASE BLITZ
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.

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.

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

#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 – My Greatest Mistake by T. Gephart

Book cover for My Greatest Mistake (Crazy In Love Book 1) by T Gephart

My Greatest Mistake
(A standalone)

Publication Date: July 12, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Mistaken Identity/Romantic Comedy/Contemporary Romance

Author: T. Gephart

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Fun, flirty, and so darn romantic. A fantastic summer read with the perfect…well everything in it.

Zara and her dream man, Edwin, I mean Lincoln meet under the most adorable meet-cute I’ve read in while. I also want to throw out that Zara’s sister, Belle, is also the cutest secondary character in every possible way and I really hope she gets a story of her own, okay now back to the soulmates…

When Zara was a teenager she was told her soulmate’s name would be Edwin Carlisle. Now, she didn’t believe in fortune tellers, nor did she believe in soulmates either, but her sister does and when both of them are entering a hospital years later and hear that very name announced over the loudspeaker, it has to be destiny, right?

My Greatest Mistake was super cute and a total joy to read from beginning to the very end. It held me from the very first page and kept me entertained until the very last page and I really hope there will be more from this world since I truly loved it.

Synopsis:

Love isn’t fated.
And anything revealed by a sideshow fortune teller about soulmates is also bogus.
But when the same unique name is called over the loudspeaker at a hospital years later, even a skeptic like Zara can’t fight the curiosity.
And when he turns out to be a witty, good-looking, intelligent and successful lawyer, a girl might rethink her stance.
But is he everything he claims to be? Or is he too good to be true?
Crazy attraction and an undeniable connection make for a lethal combination.
And he is either her ultimate true love or her greatest mistake.

The Grumpy Player Next Door
(An interconnected standalone)

Publication Date: July 8, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Enemies-to-Lovers/Sports/Romantic Comedy

Author: Pippa Grant

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Pippa always, ALWAYS, brings a HUGE smile to my face and she has once again made me smile, laugh, and chortle through her newest book.

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.
