Review – Last Round by Charity Ferrell

51215180. sy475

Last Round; Twisted Fox #5 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: September 21, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Small Town Romance/Friends-to-Lovers/Contemporary Romance

Author: Charity Ferrell

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The beginning of Charity’s books always make me laugh, smile, and basically spit out whatever beverage I happen to be drinking at the time (okay, it’s usually wine). Aside from knowing better to drink while reading her books, Charity’s fantastically witted writing is one of the fabulous reasons I fell in love with her books and will continue to read them for years to come.

Silas and Lola are quick witted and unfortunatly friend-zoned one another almost upon meeting. However, it makes for tons of sassy banter and quirky comebacks I absolutely adore, plus it allowed for years of pent of chemistry that made this book angsty while we waited for them to practically all but combust in flames of passion.

Last Round is sadly the final book in this series, but overall it was a huge win for Charity Ferrell. The story was beautifully woven together with a great timeline that was not only a tribute to the series, but allowed each couple from Twisted Fox their own unique and special time to shine. If you’ve been here from the beginning it’s no secret that Silas and Lola have been friends, but this book takes us on the journey of how that all takes place, right alongside how each one of their friends also fell in love.

For all the fun Charity puts in her books, and I’ll circle back to why I fell in love with her writing to begin with, there is a lot of fun…she also never forgets to include all the feels and hard times that truly bring her couples together. Last Round wraps up a great series and I look forward to the next journey.

Synopsis:

What’s the best way to get back at your cheating ex?
Give every guy who hits on you his number.

That’s what I did when I met Silas.
Little did I know, we’d see each other again.

One run-in leads to another.
One fake date leads to a friendship.
That friendship leads to feelings.
But everyone knows feelings and friendship doesn’t mix.

We’re too much the same.
It’d never work out.
That changes when one of us asks for more.

Everything falls apart.
There’s no going back.
Can our friendship survive … or will love destroy us?

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.

But here I am.

Determined to not hide anymore, I walk away from my carefully constructed life.

I accept a hospitalist position at a small facility in Brigs Ferry Bay, Maine and start my life over again.

Ten months later, I get a phone call that changes everything.

My ex-wife died giving birth to a little girl named Lane.

And I’m the father.

Suddenly, I’m drowning in diapers and bottles.

I’m overwhelmed and have no idea what I’m doing.

Until Boaz Dixon, a nurse at my new hospital, drops by to check on me.

He recognises a man out of his element and takes pity on me.

Somewhere between feedings and naps, I fall in love.

Both with a little girl who has my eyes, and a sexy nurse who has my heart.

Boaz and Lane are my perfect forever.

That is, until a life-changing phone call from back in New York threatens our future together.

In order to have them both, I have to risk everything.

But they’re worth the fight.

Review – At First Hate by K.A. Linde

57111547. sy475

At First Hate; Coastal Chronicles #2 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: September 7, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Small Town/New Adult/Enemies-to-Lovers/Second Chance/Contemporary Romance

Author: K.A. Linde

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Beautiful, tearful, angsty, ALL THE FEELS!!

At First Hate is a second chance love story that bruised my heart with all the angst…(sobbing)…it was a hard won love that had me in its grips from the very first page until the very end. So good!!

Told only from the POV of Marley Nelson, we weave back in forth from the past to the present and how one man, Derek Ballentine, has affected her life over and over again. This K.A. Linde type of book is what I absolutely love from her. It’s page turning, gut-twisting, and a one of a kind story that I can’t put down once I start. If you read Hold The Forevers, a few characters might seem familiar, along with the writing style that this book is written in.

Derek Ballentine and Marley Nelson first meet in high school and it was certainly a meeting of – she resented him and he just wanted in her skirt. Total teenage hormones. They continue to have a back and forth kind of frenemy zone where Derek doesn’t really know how to take Marley or how to subdue those hormones for years and unfortunately it creates bad decision making, dumb choices, and just plain old youth mistakes that work against them.

Weaving back and forth, through past and present, we get to witness how their relationship changes through time. The mistakes, the love, the loss, everything, but in the end will it be enough to finally push them past all the hate.

How do you ever get over your first love, because at the end of day, this is truly what Derek and Marley are, they just don’t know it for years…..oh, my bruised heart!!

I loved reading this angsty book and I can’t wait to return for more.

Synopsis:

A new stand alone enemies-to-lovers romance from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…

Derek Ballentine and I have always been on opposite sides of everything.

I went to a public Savannah high school. He went to a private Catholic school. I went to Duke on scholarship. He went to UNC as a legacy. When we both end up at Harvard for graduate school and we’re finally on a level playing field, I think it’s all going to change.

I was wrong.

The only thing that changed was ending up in his bed.

Now my grandma has passed away, and Derek is the attorney helping the people trying to steal her legacy. I’ll do anything to stop that from happening. Even take on my lifetime enemy.

I hate him at first sight…but I also want him at first hate.

Doctor Daddy; Brigs Ferry Bay Novella 
(A standalone novella within a series)

Publication Date: September 1, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Novella/Single Dad/Small Town/MM Romance

Author: Misty Walker

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A quick read with the perfect blend of sweet and steam.

Lance and Boez just sync together. They are compatible on every level and I love how easily they complete each other. While Lance is perfectly clueless as a new father, he’s gentle and caring with his daughter and protective of Boez. As a nurse, Boez has his nurturing side down so when he meets Lance’s daughter, Lane, it’s easy to fall in love with her, but it’s also easy to fall with the doctor himself. Boez steps easily into Lance’s life, helping out the sleep deprived man, but also completing his half filled heart.

I adore Boez and his easy going style. The way he supports Lance and helps him, not only with his daughter, but helping him in taking those final steps in discovering his true self.

Another great addition to the Brigs Ferry Bay collection, but is a complete standalone.

Excerpt

I turn on the flashlight and trudge through the brush and past the campfire, which incidentally has been left unattended. It’s down to a smolder, but Van has left out hot dog sticks and a bag of buns.

I keep going, toward Bee’s front porch and the blinding spotlight. Standing in front of the cottage is Van. Shirtless. Sweaty and shirtless. The bright light shines directly on him, accenting the dips and ridges, the smooth planes of muscle.

Van is ripped. Probably because he spends a lot of time at the gym, staring at his own reflection in the mirror. He lifts his ball cap from his head and runs a hand through his deliciously sweaty dark hair before he flips his cap around and replaces it, backward this time.

I roll my eyes at myself. What the hell is wrong with me? Deliciously sweaty. “Hey!” I bark.

He startles and the hammer in his hand goes flying, but he was on the back swing, so it heads in my direction. I sidestep it, and it manages to miss me by about six inches. He spins around, eyes wide as they land on me. “What the fuck?”

“Do you realize what time it is?”

“Do you realize that you scared the living shit out of me and I could’ve hurt you, or myself?” He motions to the hammer lying on the ground next to me.

“Wouldn’t that have been a pity,” I snap.

“What the hell is your damn problem?”

“You.” I point a finger at him. “You are the problem. It’s after ten. There’s a bylaw in place around here that stipulates all construction takes place between the hours of seven a.m. and nine p.m. from June to August, and you’re violating that. And for what? It’s not like whatever you’re doing is going to matter when your damn plan is to parcel out the property!” I’m yelling now, and heaving. And my nipples are peaking under the white tank I wore to bed. I hug myself to hide them.

“This is the second time you’ve said that. What the hell are you talking about?”

“What do you mean, what am I talking about?” I flail for a second and then cross my arms again. “You called me about it. Bee wasn’t gone a couple of weeks, and you were already asking about acreage and subdividing. It doesn’t take a genius to know what your plans are!”

“I don’t even know what you mean by subdividing, and I never called you.”

“Yes, you did!” He’s just so infuriating.

“No. I didn’t. Believe me, I’d remember dealing with someone as hostile as you.”

“I am not hostile.”

“Really?” Van props a fist on his hip. His narrow hip.

I follow the movement, which leads my eyes to his waist, that enticing V of muscle dragging my gaze down farther. Of course, because my brain is a jerk, the image of him naked pops back into my brain.

As if he’s reading my mind, his brow arches. “You’re picturing me naked right now. Aren’t you?”

“What? No!” My eyes snap back up to his.

“Yeah. You are.” His lip curls, somewhere between a smirk and sneer, his tone needling. “You were staring at my crotch, probably thinking about the last time you visually molested my junk. Is that why you stopped by? To check me out again? This whole fake phone call thing is an excuse for you to come back over here and get a look at the goods again.” He runs a hand down his chest.

“You’re an egotistical asshole. I realize that this might be some kind of fun holiday for you, and that you’re probably sleeping until noon every day, but some of us have to be up at the crack of dawn. Bylaw hours are seven a.m. to nine p.m. Next time you break them, expect to get a visit from the sheriff.” I spin around and stomp over to the extension cord, find the place where it’s joined to the lamp, and break the connection, submerging us in darkness. “Next time I won’t be so nice about it.”

“Hate to break it to you, but you weren’t very nice about it this time,” he calls after me.

It drives me crazy how easy it is for him to push my buttons.

A few seconds later I hear an oof and a clatter, which means he’s tripped over something in the dark. I smile to myself. Hopefully this time he’ll get the message.

But he can’t believe the latest demand: he needs to find a wife and quick or he could lose it all. It would be a horrible situation. But he has just the solution: his high school sweetheart. Sylvie is everything he wants in a wife—smart, funny, and caring—and he planned to woo her anyway.

Now he just has to convince Sylvie that their love is worth it all, or he and the bayou will lose her forever.

When Dillion Stitch left her hometown, she had no intention of going back. But when her brother gets into trouble, Dillion reluctantly agrees to return home to take her place at the family business.

Review – Bayou Beauty by Lexi Blake

55873273

Bayou Beauty; Butterfly Bayou #4 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: July 27, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Small Town/Intrigue/Contemporary Romance

Author: Lexi Blake

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A sweet return to the Bayou in Blake’s charming town of Papillon, LA.

Lexi Blake’s Bayou world is a slow stroll down charming neighborhoods and visits with old friends. It’s a vacation from the intense adventures of her Masters and Mercenaries world, but still just as enjoyable. The characters are well written and the entire plot is flushed out. It’s a place I enjoy revisiting time and again.

Papillon is a small town where everyone knows everyone, but in times of need they all rally together to lend a helping hand. It is certainly how Rene became so close to Sylvie’s family growing up even given their economic differences, in a town their size those differences didn’t matter in the eyes of children looking to play. As time wore on Sylvie developed a huge crush on Rene, but their age difference allowed them to grow apart, now with time and distance out of the way there is nothing holding them back aside from a cavern of years between them. They have to learn about each other all over again, but this time there is a ticking time clock working against them. Rene now has to marry to save his company and time is literally not on his side. When will they ever get a break?

It took a little bit to jump into the chemistry between Rene and Sylvie, but once they clicked the story really took off. I’m not talking about heat between the sheets either, I’m talking about their spark, their flirting, their mutual “I want you, but I can’t have you” vibe. It was like the zipper was off track at first, but it didn’t take long before they became unstuck and then zipped together, if that analogy makes sense.

There is a bit of a mystery that goes along with this story. The element of “who is behind the mask” is always fun to figure out while the characters are sorting out their feelings for one another. A sweet romance, with a bit of intrigue, to add to any summer reading.

Review – Love Next Door by Helena Hunting

56399701

Love Next Door; Lakeside #1 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: July 27, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Small Town/Contemporary Romance

Author: Helena Hunting

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Witty, smart, and lots of chemistry between the two neighbors. A perfect addition to Hunting’s contemporary books!

Van Firestone inherits his grandmother’s estate, which includes land and her sweet little cottage that just so happens to be located right next to Dillon Stitch’s trailer. These two have an instant hate-enemy relationship due in large part to misconceptions, but their meet-cute is funny and their feisty relationship continues with all of the Helena Hunting quirks that I have come to love with reading her books.

Dillon hasn’t always lived in a trailer next to Van’s now deceased grandmother, she used to live in Chicago. She had a job, an apartment, and a boyfriend, but all of those are now in the past as she is back home basically living with her parents, albeit in their trailer on their property. When she received a call from her father asking for help back home it might have come at the right time when her life was also imploding, but she wasn’t planning on staying, just long enough to sort out her next step and help her dad while he was short staffed.

Van arrived in Pearl Lake to finally sort out his grandmother’s estate and none too early. His life back in Chicago suddenly exploded with a scandal and hiding out in the small town was the best place to be. The longer he stayed the more he enjoyed the people, the small town life and especially his growly neighbor. Thoughts of staying grow more and more the longer he stays, but it might come down to a surly neighbor. Yes, they may not have gotten off the best start, but he liked her spirit and the more he got to know her the more he really liked her.

While they both actually lived in the big city and now ended in the small town, could these two neighbors want the same thing at the end of the day?

I loved all the banter, the quirky secondary characters, and of course the mention of some of my favorite Hunting characters along the way. This book is a great addition to her overall contemporary works and just a fun book to read.

Synopsis:

When Dillion Stitch left her hometown, she had no intention of going back. But when her brother gets into trouble, Dillion reluctantly agrees to return home to take her place at the family business.

Being back in Pearl Lake after all these years feels familiar, but also brings a few surprises. She’s quick to notice that someone new has shown up at the cottage next door.

But Dillion’s family has issues, Van’s family resents him, and neither Dillion nor Van feels truly at ease in the small town. For these Pearl Lake exiles, home isn’t just where the heart is—it’s where things get complicated.

Review – Love Not at First Sight by Sarah Ready

58343421. sy475

Love Not at First Sight; Soul Mates in Romeo #2 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: July 20, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Small Town/Soulmate/Contemporary Romance

Author: Sarah Ready

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A visceral book that had my heart pounding and my blood racing numerous times. This wasn’t a typical Sarah Ready book that had me snort laughing, instead I was turning pages so fast that I completely devoured this thing in just a couple hours because I had to make sure this couple survived their adventure AND fell in love!

We are back in the small town of Romeo where soulmates run supreme and the psychic matchmaker, Aunt Erma, has a very high track record of predicting everlasting love. Veronica wants nothing to do with the big L word and certainly wants nothing to do with Erma’s forecast on her love life. Veronica is so dead set on not meeting the man of her supposed dreams that she runs away.She runs deep into the woods where no one, especially her soulmate, will find her, unfortunately she runs right into a man.

Sam needs to hit pause on his life, it has sort of spiraled out of control. After his now ex-business partner and ex-wife just had a baby together, Sam begins to rethink about how his life is going and where he thought he would be. Sam decides to get away from everyone and everything, but plunging into a dark cave in the small town of Romeo and barely surviving isn’t exactly what he had in mind. At least he met Veronica in the dark and if he had to go through it all again, he wouldn’t have wanted to be lost and in peril with anyone else.

With all the same soulmate quirks and destiny qualities I love about this Romeo series, I quickly fell in love with everything in this book. While my heart basically beat out of my chest the entire time, I actually loved the action and all the twists in this second book. I can hardly wait for the next person to fall in love and see what happens in Romeo.

Synopsis:

When your soul mate is the man you loathed at first sight…Book Two in Sarah Ready’s Soul Mates in Romeo series sparkles with tension and a delicious helping of swoon-worthy romance.

Veronica Diaz loves her career, her friends and the great outdoors – she has no room in her life for men. In fact, she knows there are only two types of men in the world: players and wanna-be players and she wants nothing to do with any of them.

So when a psychic informs Veronica that her fated soul mate is Frederick Knight “The King of Players,” Veronica does what any sensible woman would do – she runs.

A twist of fate lands Veronica in the depths of a pitch-black cave system with a man she’s never met and can’t see. As Veronica and Sam struggle to survive they open up, share their secrets, and risk their lives for each other. Soon Veronica starts to wonder if maybe not all men are players, and maybe she can trust Sam enough to fall in love.

The only problem: Sam is actually Frederick Knight. The man Veronica swore she’d never, ever, ever love.

In fact, she loathed him at first sight.

And if they make it out of the cave alive, and Veronica sees him for the first time, she’ll loathe him again. Won’t she?

But maybe, sometimes you can only see who someone really is when you can’t see them at all? And maybe you can only fall in love when it’s not at first sight?

“This will easily and unequivocally be one of your top reads this year.” By Bookaddict (Chasing Romeo, Book 1 in the Soul Mates in Romeo Series)

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.

Review – The Varsity Dad Dilemma by Lex Martin

55965670. sy475

The Varsity Dad Dilemma 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: July 20, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Single Dad/New Adult/Sports/Second-Chance/Small Town Romance

Author: Lex Martin

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Ovary-explosion overload!! Rider Kingston and all the guys who live at the house called “Stallion Station” made me swoon.

I loved the chemistry between Rider and Gabby right from the beginning. These two have a love-hate history dating back to freshman year and this book begins at the beginning of senior year so the tension is strong and it’s completely delicious.

We get a pretty good look at both of their backgrounds and what makes them tick before the adorable baby, Poppy, is introduced and this little cutie only enhances what is already a fun and engaging story.

Gabby is a force of nature and I love her organizational skills. While she constantly feels alone, she knows she does it to herself given how she grew up, however she doesn’t sit around and feel sorry for herself. Her spirit and fight is something to admire and I think it’s also what drives Rider to her side over and over again.

Rider is also a powerhouse of drive, he isn’t the captain of the football team by being a slouch. His entire life has been focused on doing better and making his goals a reality. He doesn’t have time for distractions, but when a one night mistake lands on his doorstep his future suddenly looks a little different. He also doesn’t sit around feeling sorry for himself, he’s a take charge guy, but a little help from his hot neighbor certainly doesn’t hurt.

Every guy who lives across the street from Gabby is pretty darn great, mostly in the way that each one would be terrific in their own story (crossing my fingers that it becomes a reality). It’s a house full of football guys, but they all melt for the sweet baby who ends up on their doorstep. Gabby takes charge and whips them into shape which is hilarious and super sweet all wrapped up in an engaging story with lots of emotional and steamy moments.

This new world, although with some interconnected moments to Lex’s past works, was a wonderful beginning with fantastic characters. I loved the trope, the story, the angst, absolutely everything was great.

Synopsis:

★ A new sexy, small town sports romance from USA Today bestselling author Lex Martin! ★

What’s worse than having Rider Kingston, the star quarterback, give you the big brushoff because he doesn’t want to get serious? You’d probably think living across the street from him where you get a first-hand view of his hookups, right?

That’s what I thought. Until someone drops off a baby with a note pinned to her blanket that says one of those jocks—either Rider or one of his roommates—is the father. The problem? Baby mama doesn’t mention which of these numbskulls is the sperm donor.

I wouldn’t care about their paternity problems—not the slightest bit—except my brother lives there too. Which means that adorable squawking bundle might be my niece, and there’s no way I’m leaving her unattended with those bumbling football players.

They need my help, even if they don’t know it yet. Once we solve this dilemma and figure out who’s the daddy, I’m out.

I’ll just ignore Rider and those soul-searing looks he gives me every time I reach for the baby. He broke my heart three years ago. He won’t get a second chance.

Review – Waylaid by Sarina Bowen

58214962

Waylaid; True North #8 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: July 20, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Small Town/Intrigue/Contemporary Romance

Author: Sarina Bowen

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

ALL THE THINGS!!! I was not expecting this story and it was so much better than what I anticipated.

Rickie and Daphne’s story begins like any typical boy lusting after a standoffish girl. It’s adorably cute with tons of chemistry, but then dun…dun…dun we get to the heart of the story, these two have met before, but Rickie doesn’t remember because he has amnesia from an accident. This is just the tip of the iceberg of where these two begin their amazing story.

To say I was blown away by how this story was woven together is an understatement. Each layer that was added I was knocked out of the park. Rickie and Daphne’s lives have been waylaid by circumstances out of their control, but when destiny has a path in mind sometimes it just takes another path to reach the same destination.

Waylaid is full of chemistry, emotion, but also a mystery that had me peeling back information through each chapter I read. I loved how the past and present was woven together to piece together their journey and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. Their friendship, chemistry and bond grows throughout this entire story and what they share. It is a great book!

While this book is part of the True North world, it can be read as a complete standalone.

Synopsis:

It’s a tale as old as time: the bad boy meets the good girl. He makes a daring proposition. Then the boy gets a mysterious head injury and loses a year of his life…

The first time I meet Rickie, I don’t know what to make of him. The second time we meet, he doesn’t remember the six hours we spent together. Or standing me up afterward.

I’m not the same, either. I’ve got secrets. I’ve told lies. Bad boys aren’t my type, anyway. Even the ones with troubled gray eyes.

But now we’re roommates. Cue the awkward moments in the hallway when he’s wearing only a towel and a smile. He’s determined to win me over, and his talented hands weaken my resolve.

It’s all fun and games until my past rears its ugly head and his secrets come to light, shaking our fragile connection, maybe even breaking it…

Note: this is Daphne Shipley’s story. Contents include Vermonty ice cream flavors, nerdy awkwardness, tattoos, and a playboy grandpa.

Review – Charming and the Cherry Blossom by LJ Evans

57819641. sy475

Charming and the Cherry Blossom 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: July 16, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Small Town/Fantastical/New Adult/Contemporary Romance

Author: LJ Evans

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A fantastical love story that will make a believer of love out of anyone.

Elle is coined the “Willow Witch” by students at her school. She believes in signs from nature and that listening to the earth that fortune, or destiny will lead your way. If that makes her a witch then she is okay with that assessment. She doesn’t need anyone’s approval to be happy, but when she literally bumps into Hudson, a yoga instructor, on the day that cherry blossoms were falling, a sign of change, well…Hudson was a change in her world, a big change.
Hudson never thought that meeting Elle would monumentally change the course of his life, but she is truly unlike anyone he’s ever met. Elle doesn’t mind being alone, as to her it doesn’t equate to loneliness. She brings him a sense of peace he hasn’t felt in years and her gift, a gift she hasn’t shared with anyone else is truly beyond this world. It doesn’t take long to grow close to her and Hudson can’t imagine a world without her.
Hudson has no idea how he went from never knowing Elle to how he could not go a day without never speaking to her. She becomes a link to his calm and their lives become wrapped up in everything important.
When Elle finds out that her father, a man she’s never met, leaves her an estate, really a castle, but with stipulations upon receiving this massive gift. What does one do with a castle? How does she meet the stipulations? Can she really take something from a man she never knew? These are just some of the questions that plague her mind on top of what is also happening upon meeting Hudson. These stories are intertwined and all of these feelings go together, but how will it all turn out…only one way to find out is to read this magical story about a witch, a yoga instructor and an inherited castle.
LJ Evans brings forth emotions and connects them to the world around us in a way that will light up your senses in a whole new way. My skin felt electric and everything buzzed around me as I read this book. It’s truly a magical journey that will make you believe in love.

Synopsis:

Today was a fairy tale…
I inherited a fortune from a dad I never knew,
And a thoroughly charming guy asked me out.

Unfortunately, my fairy tale could disappear in ninety days…
Because there’s an impossible task to complete,
And a greedy cousin plotting against me.

Plus, I’m not your typical fairy tale princess.
I have a secret that might send my charming running,
And threatens my future if the press finds out.

If today was a fairy tale…
Why does my happily ever after look so far out of reach?

From award-winning author, LJ Evans, comes a contemporary romance filled with all the magic, hope, and love of a fairy tale plus the slow-burn, old-soul vibe her fans adore. Inspired by Taylor Swift’s “Today Was a Fairytale,” this small-town romance is pure escapism.

A full-length, standalone adult romance.

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.

Blog Tour – Flipping Love You by Erin Nicholas

He’s the tattooed bad boy her mama warned her about.
She’s his hot mess–but mostly hot–next door neighbor.
Until a two-night-stand gives them the surprise of a lifetime…

Flipping Love You, an all-new STEAMY and laugh-out-loud, surprise baby standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas, is available now!

Jillian Morris is a workaholic who forgets to watch the time. And to eat. And to change her shoes. And to keep even a house-plant alive. And to have any kind of a personal life.

Now an eccentric millionaire has left her eight million dollars. And eight penguins. Yes, real live penguins. She’s a wildlife vet who specializes in penguins, so that makes sense. Kind of. She can, and does, keep penguins alive and well. She now just has to move them cross-country to her friend’s new animal park.

So if anyone deserves a one-night (or two) stand with a hot, younger, tattooed bad boy on a motorcycle, it’s her. Or so Jill tells herself when Zeke Landry flips his bike in front of her motel.

If only she’d known who he really was.
And that he was the fall-hard-and-fast type.
And the protective type.
And that one night would turn into more like nine-months of being …sigh…very personal.

Fall in love today!

Excerpt

He lifted a hand to run it through his wet hair.
Her eyes followed the motion, seemingly riveted on his arm. He wasn’t sure if it was the tattoo or what exactly. But he did know that Jillian was fascinated with his ink. She had traced all of it with her fingers and tongue last night more than once. And he had a lot of ink.
“I’m the guy who’s remodeling your house.”
Her eyes widened. “We’re going to be neighbors.”
He let his grin grow slowly. “Yup.”
She tipped her head back and groaned.
But it wasn’t one of the hot oh-my-God-yes groans she’d been giving him last night. This was more of oh-crap groan.
“You’re clearly not as excited about that as I am,” he said dryly.

Her head came up and she met his eyes. Now there was no roaming over his half naked body. She shook her head. “It just feels complicated to live next door to the guy I’m hooking up with once a month.”
He was confused. “We’re hooking up once a month?”
“Well, that was what I was going to propose anyway. Friends with benefits, you know? After last night I thought that could be kind of fun.”
“That would be fun. Very, very fun,” he said. “But why only once a month? I’m up for that kind of fun way more often.”
“Sure. But then it turns into more like dating or a relationship or something rather than just getting together for hot sex.”
“And I take it the relationship and dating thing is something you’re trying to avoid?”
“Very much so. And living next door to you means that we’ll see each other occasionally and since you’ll be saving me from alligators on a regular basis, we could potentially turn into actual friends. And that makes the hooking up even more complicated.”
Having the sun up hadn’t made him feel any less attracted to, slightly confused by, surprised by, and definitely amused by this woman. “But friends with benefits has friends right in the title.”
This all sounded good to him. Having a neighbor he could get naked with whenever the urge struck, who didn’t want anything else from him, sounded pretty great.
“I’m just really not interested in a relationship,” Jill went on. “I’m not good at them. And I don’t really have time for them. And I don’t put the effort into them, which ends up bothering the other person after a while. Which is understandable. I’m not blaming anyone. I just really like to have everything laid out and everyone on the same page. And I like sex. It would be really perfect to be able to have amazing sex, but only when it’s convenient.”
Zeke gave a soft snort. Convenient hot sex. It really did sound pretty amazing.
“If you just want to walk through my door, only wearing a robe and nothing underneath to save time, I’m not gonna kick you out, cher,” he told her. He was half-teasing. But only half.
She finally gave him a hint of a smile. “I can just show up on your front porch anytime I want?”
He reached up and cupped the side of her head. He brought her in close and put his mouth against hers. “Any freaking time.”

Publication Date: June 29, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Small Town/Surprise Pregnancy/Contemporary Romance

Author: Erin Nicholas

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Did someone crank up the heat? I need to jump in with the adorable penguins and cool off because I am head over tail in love with Flipping Love You!

Holy hotness! Get your fan’s at the ready and make sure you have an ice cold beverage when you sit down to read this book! Zeke and Jill are beyond hot. They are Louisiana summer hot!! It’s a good thing the penguins that Jill takes care of enjoy the warm weather because they upped the steam in Autre. Am I getting my point across yet?😉

Zeke Landry has always enjoyed the ladies and the ladies enjoyed him, but when he meets Jill Morris she is unlike any other woman he’s ever met. Not only is she the lowest maintenance woman he’s come across, but he soon learns that she cares more about, not just animals, but penguins in particular more than people. She is such a workaholic that she forgets about things like eating, doing laundry, people’s birthdays, basically all of those small things that eventually lead to big things that have ended any kind of relationship she’s ever tried to have in the past.

Jill prefers to keep things simple, like friends-with-benefits, which she knew moving to Louisiana she’d have to find a new “friend”, so when hot, tattooed Zeke just so happens to have an accident in front of her motel the first night she’s in town, she invites him back to her room. She isn’t shy in asking for what she wants and Zeke loves the fresh, honest approach, another thing to add to his growing list of what makes her unique. Every moment they spend together only grows his fascination and when one of those moments accidentally causes their friends-with-benefits to be a bit more permanent…well, Zeke isn’t exactly upset about that prospect.

My favorite parts, aside from the honesty and frank openness between Zeke and Jill, was truly in the sweet moments when they realized that when you find the person you love you become a better version of yourself. Neither Jill nor Zeke were bad people before meeting one another, but when they accidently fall, they also accidentally became better versions of the awesome people they already were. I’ll let you discover what that truly means, but just know it truly made me smile every single time it happened in this book.

My other favorite part is Ellie’s definition of having children. “They are like a hurricane”. I’ve never heard something more perfectly accurate in all of my life. This entire scene between Ellie and Jill, well actually with the entire family, is really the best.

How Erin keeps topping these wild boys of the bayou I don’t know, but she does and Flipping Love You is everything cute, fun, and totally hot to add to this amazing series!

COVER REVEAL
Title: The Varsity Dad Dilemma
Author: Lex Martin
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs
Photo: Perriwinkle Photography
Release Date: July 20, 2021
BLURB

★ A sexy, small town sports romance from USA Today bestselling author Lex Martin! ★

What’s worse than having Rider Kingston, the star quarterback, give you the big brushoff because he doesn’t want to get serious? You’d probably think living across the street from him where you get a first-hand view of his hookups, right?
That’s what I thought. Until someone drops off a baby with a note pinned to her blanket that says one of those jocks—either Rider or one of his roommates—is the father. The problem? Baby mama doesn’t mention which of these numbskulls is the sperm donor.
I wouldn’t care about their paternity problems—not the slightest bit—except my brother lives there too. Which means that adorable squawking bundle might be my niece, and there’s no way I’m leaving her unattended with those bumbling football players.
They need my help, even if they don’t know it yet. Once we solve this dilemma and figure out who’s the daddy, I’m out.
I’ll just ignore Rider and those soul-searing looks he gives me every time I reach for the baby. He broke my heart three years ago. He doesn’t get a second chance.

EXCERPT

As I walk Sienna to her car, she squeals. “Holy crap, is that Rider Kingston?”
Without my permission, my gaze slides across the street to the oversized man-child, who has the gall to be moving furniture shirtless while flexing his stupid abs. Judging by the other sweaty minions pouring out of the two story, Rider’s getting new roommates too.
My eye twitches again, and my focus snaps back to Sienna. “I thought you said you weren’t a fan of football.”
“Oh, I’m not. I can’t sit through an entire game. But I am a fan of football players.” Her gaze turns ravenous as she scans my neighbor’s front lawn. Or, likely, the glistening eight-pack Rider’s put on display. “All that testosterone. Those bulging muscles. That deep, masculine grunting. Oh yeah. Get me one of those!”
She cackles, and Rider hears it.
Of course he does.
Shockingly, he deigns to speak to me.
“Hey, Gabby,” he shouts. “How was your summer?”
I’m not sure when he decided to stop ignoring me, but that’s better than pretending we’re friends, which we’ll never be.
I close my eyes because I don’t need any reminders of his masculine beauty. And I definitely don’t need to see that sexy smirk, the one more powerful than his cannon that took the team to the playoffs last year.
No, I’m not interested in the star quarterback. Not anymore.
Turning on my heel, I wave my middle finger and march back to my house.
Laughter is all I hear as I slam the front door shut behind me.

Review – Hunter by Anna Brooks

56221475. sy475

Hunter; Ryder Ranch #1
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: June 10, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Cowboy/Small town/Contemporary Romance

Author: Anna Brooks

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
I only recently discovered Anna Brooks and I’m already a huge fan! Within the first chapter I was giggling over sassy Summer and swooning over all the swagger Hunter was throwing out. I loved the entire story and couldn’t put it down. This was a big yes…yes….yes!!!

Summer may have landed on Hunter’s property by accident, but it’s truly the first time she’s felt at home in her entire life. It’s hard not to feel warm and accepted in the Ryder family with the small town welcome, but Hunter makes her stay even more inviting.

Hunter has never felt more at ease with any woman before, that is until Summer has an accident with a cow on his property. Offering to let her stay was the easiest choice he’s ever made in his entire life, but getting her to stay may be the hardest thing he’s ever accomplished.

These two fit together seamlessly. Their chemistry is electric and fitting in with the family is flawless. But, what is the big secret that Summer is keeping that could destroy everything?

Hunter is the first in a new series and I’m totally onboard for the rest of the Ryder cowboy brothers to ride to the rescue of their HEA’s. I adore the small town atmosphere, it reminds me so much of where I currently live;  the people, the hospitality, yes, everyone is all up in your business, but it’s also nice because people do care, but I do wish there were hunky cowboys riding to the rescue, thank goodness for books.

I love, love, love this new series and can not wait to return.

Synopsis:

I never expected a runaway cow would have led me to the love of my life, but chasing after that heifer turned out to be the best decision I ever made.

Summer Paige was lost, alone, and a mess… just like her nearly totaled car. After a glass of whiskey and a promise to keep her safe, I convinced her to stay while she got back on her feet.

It wasn’t long before the innocent beauty turned my life upside down, and I realized she was everything I didn’t know I wanted.

Life was perfect. Until the day I woke up and found her gone.

Her letter was supposed to explain why she left, but it did the opposite and made me want her even more. I had to prove that her past didn’t matter to me because all I wanted was her future. And I intended to do just that… as soon as I found her.

HUNTER by Anna Brooks is coming June 10!

Leif

The world knows me as Leif in Wanderlust, travel blogger.

Through the lens of my camera, I take my followers along as I vacation in some of the most beautiful places all over the world.

Sure, it can get lonely, but I’m literally living everyone’s best life and loving every second of it.

Until I’m hired for a job in Brigs Ferry Bay, Maine, where I meet a local diner owner, Fernando.

One steamy night together turns into two, and two… turns into a week of bliss.

Our instant connection leaves me questioning my motives for why I do what I do.

Am I replacing meaningful relationships with the approval of strangers?

And why can’t I get Fernando out of my head?

Fernando

Tourist season in Brigs Ferry Bay is the best season when your number one rule is to not sleep with the locals.

Small towns get six degrees of incestuous if you’re not careful.

So when a sexy travel blogger with a nerdy vibe struts into my diner, I call dibs.

He’s the perfect distraction from the dumpster fire that is my life right now, since Pops was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.

I didn’t expect to actually like the guy or miss him after he went on his way.

But I do, and I can’t stop the intrusive thoughts telling me what we have is more than lust.

Now my biggest problem is convincing a wanderer to stay in one place with me.

I’m the cat, he’s the mouse.

Game on.

***Brigs Ferry Bay is a steamy MM romance series. While each book can be read as a standalone, in order to get the full experience, they’re best read in order. Enemies to lovers, friends to lovers, hurt comfort, age-gap romance, and so much more. Fall in love with the charming small-town gay romances of Brigs Ferry Bay…***

Blog Tour – Heavy Petting by Erin Nicholas

He’s her best friend.
A reformed bad boy turned hot teacher.
And after one spur-of-the-moment Vegas wedding… her husband.

Heavy Petting, an all-new heartwarming and laugh-out-loud romantic comedy in the Boys of the Bayou Gone Wild Series by New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas is available now!

He’s her best friend.
A reformed bad boy turned hot teacher.
And after one spur-of-the-moment Vegas wedding… her husband.

Jordan Benoit and Fletcher Landry have been best friends since they were six. He’s always been The Guy. When she needed picked up, cheered up, or lifted up–like literally, to see the stage at a concert–Fletcher was the guy.

So when her boyfriend dumps her–on national TV–Fletcher immediately gets on a plane and comes to her rescue.

And when she ends up in a Vegas wedding chapel and needs someone to say, “I do”…yep, Fletcher’s the guy. Of course.

But being The Guy 24/7 is a lot. He just wants everyone to give him a freaking minute to get this marriage thing right. Including his sexy, sweet new wife who he’s wanted for three years. Who is exasperatingly, temptingly all-in from minute one.

Jordan knows what she wants. A life in her hometown. A job with alpacas. And Fletcher. Not necessarily in that order.

They’ve said the vows. They’d told the world. They’ve told their grandmas. Forget taking things slow. Forget just heavy petting. Forget any chance of backing out when things get tough. They’re going to have to go all the way, in every way.

After all, friends becoming lovers should be the easiest thing in the world. Right?

Experience all the feels today!

Excerpt

“I also think that I need to—”
“Marry me.”
“Date you.”
They spoke at the same time.
Then stared at each other.
“What?”
“What?”
They spoke simultaneously again.
“I was trying to give you some freaking space before I said anything.” He seemed very annoyed suddenly.
She leaned in, bracing her hand on the seat between them. “The last person I need space from is you, Fletcher. I mean, we’ve basically been dating for twenty years. If dating is about getting to know someone and figuring out how well you fit with them and figuring out if you want to spend the rest of your life with them…we’ve done that.”
He shook his head. “You have got to be one of the most exasperating people in my life.”
Her eyebrows rose. “Considering your twin brothers are Zeke and Zander, being one of the most exasperating people in your life is pretty huge.”
He shook his head. “Absolutely exasperating. To think I could’ve kissed you when we were standing next to a king-sized bed and you were only in your bra and panties and you would have been all in.”
Jordan felt her cheeks flush, but she grinned widely. “I really am a pain.”
“You really are.” His gaze dropped to her mouth.
Jordan felt a zing of excitement go through her. She really wanted him to kiss her.
“I think you dating me is a great idea,” he said after a moment.
Thank God.
“You’re sure you’re done dating other people? Having fun with all those girls? All the casual relationships?” she asked.
“If it means I get to be with you? Absolutely.”
Her stomach swooped, harder and faster than before. “This isn’t crazy?”
“It makes a hell of a lot more sense than anything else. Like you dating other men. Or either of us being with anyone else.”
“We’ve never talked about this before.”
“You’ve been taken,” he said simply.
Right. That was true. And Fletcher was too good of a guy to go after another man’s girl.
She still felt compelled to say, “It’s been three years since anything happened.”
“Again, because you’ve been taken.” His voice dropped. “Only because you’ve been taken, Jordan.”
Her heart skittered at that and she wet her lips. She thought about her next words carefully. Several seconds ticked by. Then she said simply, “Prove it.”
Fletcher reached out, wrapped his big hand around her wrist, and tugged her close. He cupped the back of her head and brought her in until they were nose to nose. “This changes everything,” he said. Almost as if it was a warning.
“I know.”
“I’m the last frog you’re ever going to kiss. So be sure you want it now.”
That was exactly what she’d wanted to hear without even realizing it.

Review – Mischief After Midnight by Jennifer Bernard

58019766. sy475

Mischief After Midnight; Lost Harbor #9 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: June 1, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Small Town/Brother’s Best Friend/Boss-Employee/Contemporary Romance

Author: Jennifer Bernard

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Fall in love with Alaska while falling in love with Toni and Bash. I was giggling and deeply sighing while rapidly flipping pages over this adorable couple so I could watch them fall in love even faster.

I love falling in love with the town over and over again, but even more with each couple that finds their couple match up. Toni and Bash are absolutely perfect and so is their story!

There is almost nothing better than when a childhood crush finally gets fulfilled. For me, those are one of my favorite and fully satisfying romance stories to read. Toni had a huge crush on her brother’s best friend, Bash Rivers, from the moment she knew what a teenage crush was. Unfortunately, in the ultimate definition of the word, Bash crushed her teenage heart when he left town years ago and he ultimately took her heart with him, unbeknowingly. Toni’s kept every relationship superficial up to that point, but when Bash comes back to town as much as she’d like to reexamine those old feelings…well…Bash is now her boss, perhaps it’s time to take a look at her life and the next phase of where she wants to go. It might be time to unfriendzone some people and take a long hard look at what she wants.

Bash owes a lot to Sally, the owner of the Olde Salt Saloon, along with the Del Rey family. When Sally decides to retire Bash can’t pass up her offer, but more than that he wants to visit his best friend, Tristan, who recently had an accident and even see Tristan’s tagalong sister, Toni. It’s been a few years since he’s actually seen Toni and once he does he likes what he sees, but things are complicated, even with the intense chemistry he feels brewing between them. She technically works for him now, she’s also the sister of his best friend who is still recovering from a serious accident and lastly, but no more important, Bash doesn’t know if he’s actually going to stay in Lost Harbor for good. Ignoring all his feelings and emotions is best, until he no longer can.

Some of my favorite parts of this book are when either Toni or Bash are in the Saloon. The patrons are hilarious, especially when Bash is first learning. They give him grief, in the best way that a small town knows how. Toni of course knows everyone, and even though Bash should since he grew up there, it’s been over a decade since he left and new people come and old people go. That saying that as much as things stay the same, things also change. Toni and Bash are perfect together for that very reason, especially in a local hangout.

I get giddy anytime someone new pops up wondering whose story could potentially be next. I  seriously could never get tired of returning to Lost Harbor. Fan for life here.

Synopsis:

A sizzling “brother’s best friend” standalone in the Lost Harbor, Alaska series

Bartender Toni Del Rey is the quick-witted queen of the Olde Salt Saloon, famous for trading barbs with grizzled fishermen and putting rowdy customers in their place. Independent and fearless, she’s only ever lost her cool over one man—the childhood crush who got away. These days she sticks to the F’s: friends, fun, and fu…well, you know. But now Bash is back, and more crush-worthy than ever. Worst of all, he just bought the Olde Salt, which makes him her brand-new boss.

Bash left Lost Harbor long ago to become a professional fighter—and to forget his nightmarish childhood. He’s only back to return a favor, but when he sets eyes on Toni, he may never want to leave again. His best friend’s little sister has gone from tomboy to tempting, from mischievous to maddening—a fact he can’t ignore while they work side by side at the Olde Salt. But between Toni’s fierce independence, his reputation as “Bad News” Bash, and a few deep dark secrets, they’re hardly suited to anything lasting.

Then again, you never know what a little mischief after midnight will lead to…

Callan’s Atlas Blurb:

From USA Today bestselling author K Webster comes a steamy and emotional age-gap MM romance!

When we moved from New York to Maine, life was supposed to get easier, not harder.
Change, for me, was difficult.
I became the target of terrible crimes that resulted in sending a once-beloved man of the community to prison for a very long time.
Now that I’m eighteen, I could move back to the Big Apple, but fear has me rooted in place.
I hate what that monster did to me.
Looks like I’m stuck here for good.
Brigs Ferry Bay’s unhappiest gay.
Each day, the darkness closes in around me more and more.
Black clothes. Black mood. Black thoughts. Black eyeliner.
The color in my life bled from me months ago and never came back.

Until him.
Atlas Larson.
Newest cop on the BFB police force.
Too hot. Too strong. Too old for me. Too…everything.

Atlas is a rebellious, bossy, mouthy brute who likes to provoke me.
Every encounter starts with heat and ends with an argument.
Color begins sneaking back into my world little by little.
He reminds me of who I once was and shows me who I’m meant to be.

I crave to leave this town once and for all.
But now that I’ve found the courage to do it, the arrogant jerk with a badge might find a way to keep me here and in his arms forever.
