Review – Shut Out by Cathryn Fox

Shut Out; Scotia Storms #5
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: December 13, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Small Town/Friends-to-Lovers/Holiday Romance

Author: Cathryn Fox

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

That’s right, I’m a coward.

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

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

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

2022 New Release/Release Day, Contemporary Romance, Year of Releases - 2022, Year of Reviews - 2022

New Release – Tempt by Melanie Harlow

You’ve heard the story about the wedding planner who falls for the groom?
Well, this is the one where she falls for his father.
And that groom? He’s my ex.

TEMPT, an all-new scorching hot age gap, forbidden, small town romance, featuring a plus-sized heroine and her ex’s irresistible dad from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow, is now available!

I didn’t realize who the gruff, gorgeous older man was the night he rescued me from a creep in a Manhattan hotel bar. All I knew was that a hot, bearded stranger with a protective streak showed up right when I needed a reminder that real gentlemen still exist.

(Although he left his manners behind after asking me up to his room.)

It was the hottest night of my life, but I never thought I’d see the former Navy SEAL again.

Imagine my surprise at the rehearsal dinner one week later, when my sexy one-night stand is introduced as the father of the groom. Even more surprising? That temptation we felt in New York was no fluke.

In public, we pretend there’s nothing between us.

In private, we can’t keep our hands off each other.

The situation is beyond complicated. Zach never even knew he’d fathered a child until recently, and he wants to earn his son’s trust and respect. As for me, I’m looking for a man who wants to start a family, and Zach has made it clear he’s not that man. He’s fifteen years older, newly divorced, and he lives across the country.

But no matter how many times we draw the line, we keep crossing it.

Nothing so wrong should ever feel so right.

Review – Once Upon a Sexy Scrooge by Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine

Once Upon a Sexy Scrooge
(Standalone)

Publication Date: November 29, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Small Town/Enemies-to-Lovers/Holiday/MM Romance

Author: Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Imagine if the Hallmark channel had a slightly dirtier side…this is exactly where this book would fall. Once Upon a Sexy Scrooge has ALL the magic of the holiday season, but rubbed down with the dirty writing that I love reading from this writing duo.

Maxwell Scott has no love for Christmas. Zero, zilch, nada. He is the Grinch and Scrooge all rolled into one hot man. To nail that point home, right before Christmas he approaches Micah Noble and his family, who own a Christmas tree farm, about the deal to buy their land, but Maxwell doesn’t quite understand why they won’t sell. Did he miss the Christmas part of the whole thing? No, he really dislikes this holiday. Unluckily or perhaps luckily for him, he gets snowed in when he drives out for a visit and is then forced to enjoy Christmas with the Nobles. Maxwell might just discover what all that magic of the holiday is about, while meeting the perfect lumberjack of his dreams to boot.

Micah and Maxwell couldn’t be more different from one another, but that only made this book adorably funny while Max grouches around and Micah gets a twinkle in his eye about it. I’ll admit there were times that I wanted to smack the Scrooge right out of Max, but there were also times that I could sympathize with the Grinch that lived inside of him too. I think we all have those moments which made this book perfect for this time of year.

It’s a short, sweet with the right amount of spice, holiday book that will warm you all over.

Synopsis:
Ah, Christmas. The most magical time of the year. A time when the snow is falling, cider is flowing, and couples are kissing under the mistletoe.

Too bad all that makes me want to gag.

Look, it isn’t that I’m a hater, it’s just that I have a job to do, and this particular holiday is getting in the way of that. And I know what you’ll say, that Micah Noble’s Christmas Tree Farm is a beloved tradition for many of the families of Merrihill, but you have to see the bigger picture here: a five-star luxury resort where overworked Manhattanites can escape to, a serene place of spas and shopping and watching sexy lumberjacks chopping wood…

Oh, wait, scratch that last one. Lumberjacks aren’t my thing. Anymore. Micah Noble cured me of that, which tends to happen when you’re trying to buy someone’s family land to bulldoze to the ground.

He can call me a Scrooge all he wants, but business is business, and pleasure is…well, not something I can afford to think about. Even if it does come packaged in those tight jeans and flannel shirts that make me want to rip them off with my teeth—

No. This is not happening. I will not think of Micah as anything other than an obstacle to getting what I want. A really, really sexy obstacle.

Ugh. Screw Christmas and the sleigh it rode in on.

A sweet and sexy m/m holiday romance coming soon from USA TODAY Bestselling Authors Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine..

Review – The Fake Holidate by Amie Knight

The Fake Holidate
(Standalone)

Publication Date: December 1, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Small Town/Office/Holiday/Fake Dating Romance

Author: Amie Knight

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
This holiday novella deserves ALL the mistletoe kisses for how perfect it was!!

Considering The Fake Holidate was a short read it packed in chemistry, adorable animals, quirky characters, a page-turning storyline, and holiday cheer. It is the perfect holiday story to read while sitting by the fire with a hot cup of hot cocoa.

Clover is invited back home for her sister’s wedding, right before Christmas. To make matters worse, her sister is marrying her ex-boyfriend who cheated on her with said sister, only last year. Merry Friggin Christmas to her. While Clover really doesn’t want to go to the wedding, she really doesn’t want to go alone, but that is when Nick – her co-worker – who she thought hated her, offered himself up as tribute. Maybe he doesn’t hate her as much as she thought??

While Clover can’t figure out Nick and why he wants to come to her nightmare, it doesn’t take long to appreciate his presence and then really, really appreciate his naked torso and soft lips and what is with the hand holding?? Okay, so she isn’t really sure how the fake boyfriend turned into making her stomach flutter and twist and turn so much, but it’s possible that there could be more to Nick than she originally thought.

This book is adorable and sweet with just the right amount of spice for the holiday season. I really loved Sugar Mountain and the cast of characters Knight brought to this world.

Synopsis:
The holidays are all merry and bright…
Until your sister decides to marry your ex—on Christmas.
Now I’m heading home to Sugar Mountain for this nightmare of a wedding.
To make matters worse, my work nemesis somehow convinced me to bring him as my date.
He’s grumpy and rude—the most infuriating man on the planet. Honestly, forget decking the halls, I’d rather deck him in the face.
It doesn’t help that he’s unbelievably handsome. But he hates me, or so I thought.
Until one fake date changes everything.
Even my family can’t help but fall for his charms.
He’s blurring lines, confusing things.
Making me want to jingle his bells.
I don’t know what’s going to happen after this trip.
All I’m sure of is, faking nice has never felt this naughty.

Review – Breaking All the Rules by Amy Andrews

Breaking All the Rules; Credence, Co #3
(Interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: January 24, 2023

Genre/Tropes: Reverse Age Gap/Small Town/Contemporary Romance

Author: Amy Andrews

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
I completely connected with this funny, done-with-the-rat-race book!

Wow, could I empathize with Bea!! I’ve run that wheel of a rat race, tried to impress bosses, co-workers, everyone around me for years, only to reach my stress limits just like Bea. I LOVED joining her in Credence while she veged on her bed binging shows she’s missed that everyone’s talked about, day drinking, not showering, and completely checking out of life while she just needed to recharge on life. This is something so completely relatable and I loved her for being herself.

Then the story just got better….

Bea has a major meltdown and this is the point when she meets the yummy, delicious Austin, who-yes, he’s a decade younger-you go girl!!, who is a cop in town, but even after her meltdown he still manages to knock those dirty socks off her feet!! Well…it takes a few dates, but you get my drift.

In a nutshell, Bea has a wonderful journey back to discovering herself and who she wanted to be after giving up all of those rats. This book is fun, dirty, and a little life affirming. Plus, I always love returning to the town of Credence, but this book is a complete standalone and can be read without previously sampling any of Annie’s pies.

Synopsis:
Sometimes you gotta toss your whole life into a burning dumpster to find what’s most important…

Beatrice Archer has always done everything she’s supposed to —worked her ass off, ignored her non-existent personal life, and kept her mouth shut. Now she’s over it. The rat race, respectability…the underwire bras. She’s taking her life back. Starting with moving to Nowhere, Colorado to live life on her own terms.

Now Bea gives exactly zero forks. Beer for breakfast. Sugar for everything else. Baggy sweats and soft cotton undies FTW. Then a much younger and delightfully attractive cop is called to deal with her flagrant disregard for appropriate clothing outside the local diner (some folks just don’t appreciate bunny slippers) and Bea realizes there’s something missing from her little decathlon of decadence…and he might be the guy to help her out.

When it comes to breaking rules, Officer Austin Cooper is surprisingly eager to assist. He’s charming, a little bit cowboy, and a whole lot sexy. But Bea’s about to discover that breaking the rules has consequences. And all of the cherry pies in Colorado can’t save her from what’s coming…

Review – Tempt by Melanie Harlow

Tempt; Cloverleigh Farms #9
(standalone within an interconnected series)

Publication Date: November 21, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Forbidden/Age-Gap/Small Town Romance

Author: Melanie Harlow

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Mmmm…Mmmm…Mmmm. Zach Barrett is a delicious snack while Minnie MacAllister is a wonderful boost for curvy girls. Overall, Tempt is one fantastic read from cover to cover.

From the very beginning Zach and Minnie had chemistry in spades. It was obvious that it would be impossible to stay away from one another because they just had that zing. It was the rest of the forbiddenness of their story that made what they had more difficult to make that happen.

When they first met, they met as strangers. It was easy, fun, and exciting. When they meet next their life becomes more complicated. Zach is attending his son’s wedding, a son he just discovers he has after twenty-eight years, and Minnie is the wedding planner. That isn’t even the most awkward part, Minnie once dated the groom, Zach’s son…awkward. The water just gets more muddy, but what never gets convoluted is the chemistry between Zach and Minnie. They burn bright every single time they are together which makes what they have special, but also hard when it feels built on something tainted.

Tempt is also a wonderful book for the curvy reader. Minnie is an advocate for plus size brides, as she works in the field, she appreciates her own curves, as does Zach. Amen for positive body imaging! Tempt also brings ALL the hotness between the sheets…let’s face it…Zach is a man who knows what to do and how he wants to do it. Yum!!

Like I said, there is so much good contained in this book. It’s not one to miss.

Synopsis:
You’ve heard the story about the wedding planner who falls for the groom?
Well, this is the one where she falls for his father.
And that groom? He’s my ex.

I didn’t realize who the gruff, gorgeous older man was the night he rescued me from a creep in a Manhattan hotel bar. All I knew was that a hot, bearded stranger with a protective streak showed up right when I needed a reminder that real gentlemen still exist.

(Although he left his manners behind after asking me up to his room.)

It was the hottest night of my life, but I never thought I’d see the former Navy SEAL again.

Imagine my surprise at the rehearsal dinner one week later, when my sexy one-night stand is introduced as the father of the groom. Even more surprising? That temptation we felt in New York was no fluke.

In public, we pretend there’s nothing between us.

In private, we can’t keep our hands off each other.

The situation is beyond complicated. Zach never even knew he’d fathered a child until recently, and he wants to earn his son’s trust and respect. As for me, I’m looking for a man who wants to start a family, and Zach has made it clear he’s not that man. He’s fifteen years older, newly divorced, and he lives across the country.

But no matter how many times we draw the line, we keep crossing it.

Nothing so wrong should ever feel so right.

Review – A Very Merry Margarita Mix-Up by Brittanee Nicole

A Very Merry Margarita Mix-Up; Bristol Bay #5
(interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: November 11, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Holiday/Small Town Romance

Author: Brittanee Nicole

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars4.5 stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
This was my first Brittanee Nicole book, but it was easy to jump into the Bristol Bay world and become familiar with all of the characters that lived within it.

Shawn Chase, while he’d been a famous baseball pitcher, was currently living in his sister’s basement and tending bar at his best friend’s bar and restaurant while he was figuring out his next steps in life. This was when his friend sent him his wish reminder about mixing up his life and wouldn’t you know it had more to do about his coming days than his bleak past when he’d filled out that dollar bill wish. As we quickly learn, Shawn is a man who makes bold moves and is probably the sweetest man to walk around the Bristol Bay area. While he originally thought he was making a move on his best friend, Hailey, it turns out it was actually her estranged twin sister, Jules. She’s just arrived in town and looking to reunite with her family when Shawn walks up to her and kisses her and let me tell you, the sparks ignite leading them on a path to all kinds of new found discovery, but before either of them can really figure out what that means, there are a lot of obstacles that end up on their path to love.

I loved the steam and romance that brewed between Shawn and Jules throughout the entire book. It was one that brewed slowly, even after that initial kiss, but let’s face it, they were literal strangers and took their time to get to know one another, but once they did…full steam ahead.

Also, with the small town atmosphere, the camaraderie between all of the cast, especially Shawn’s friends was a total joy to read. Jules’ family was a bit slower to warm to, just given the circumstances, but Shawn is the ever present cinnamon roll to help ease the tension and I loved him all the more for his charismatic sweetness.

A 4.5 star rating overall.

Blog Tour – Bayou With Benefits by Erin Nicholas

Bayou with Benefits, an all-new nanny meets single dad small town romance featuring a hot firefighter from New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas is out now!

They are friends. Without benefits. Unfortunately.
Michael LeClaire is small-town Louisiana. A firefighter. A single dad.
And Amelia Landry is New York City. A social media influencer. A model.
Sure, she’s his son’s favorite person on the planet.
And yeah, their families spend so much time together it’s hard to remember who shares DNA and who just shares secrets, inside jokes, and a sincere lack of boundaries.
And okay, he’s seen her nerdy side. Her sweet side. Her funny, self-deprecating side.
Fine, yes, resisting this woman has taken a saint’s share of willpower.
But he has to. He just cannot do long-distance. And he can’t have a casual fling with someone he’s known–and will know–forever.
Thankfully, he only has to hide his feelings a few times a year when she visits.
And then, he slips. One time. One spontaneous I-knew-it-would-be-everything kiss and he’s a goner.
Now every time they see each other it’s harder and harder to ignore the heat.
And when she shows up on his doorstep after a car accident changes her entire life, there’s no way he can resist the chance to see if this can last…or if they’ll finally flame out.

“If you don’t want our sisters to think they’re right about everything, you have to quit looking at me like that.”

Michael LeClaire had three choices here.

He could pretend he had no idea what Amelia Landry was talking about, turn, smile nonchalantly, and try to have a normal, casual conversation with her.

That was going to be nearly impossible, of course. This was Ami. There was no being casual around her. He hadn’t been able to pull nonchalant off since he’d first seen her walk down the dock in a lime green bikini the summer she’d turned twenty. But then, eleven months ago, everything had changed and now…yeah, casual was completely off the table.

He’d known she’d be here. Of course. It was her sister’s wedding. She was a bridesmaid. He’d been preparing to see her. Still, it had been three months and the last time…leaving her at that airport had been so much harder than he’d expected. He didn’t think there’d be anything casual about the things he’d end up saying to her tonight if they talked alone.

His second option was setting something on fire so that he would have to don his fire gear and do something with his evening other than watch Ami in her off-the-shoulder peach-colored bridesmaid dress, laughing and dancing and looking fucking stunning while he struggled to remember why they were only friends. As he did every single time she stood too close to him.

The reasons were good. He knew that. The primary one being that she lived in fucking New York City and he lived in Autre, Louisiana and that would just never work out. He had a kid. He was the fire chief here. His entire family was here. He couldn’t move to New York—nor did he want to—and he couldn’t travel there on a regular basis.

Ami was a model. She’d just landed a huge contract. The contract she’d been hoping and working for. She’d moved from Shreveport to New York only three months ago. She wasn’t coming back to Louisiana and also couldn’t be traveling back here on a regular basis.

Fuck New York City.

Yeah, setting something on fire kind of seemed like a great idea.

And then there was his third option: turning, throwing her over his shoulder, taking her straight back to his house, and not letting her out of his bed for a week, whether they could be together long-term or not.

Which would only make all of this—the wanting her, the thinking about her, the missing her—so much worse.

He wasn’t going to be able to do any of those three things.

He was screwed.

So, he sucked in a deep lungful of oxygen and turned, deciding to go with his fourth option—just praying to not fuck everything up. “Am I that obvious?”

Ami smiled up at him. “I just really think it’s unfair that they’re assuming things that I didn’t actually get to experience.”

He shook his head. “Don’t.”

“Don’t what? Talk about how Charlie and Naomi are assuming their matchmaking worked and we spent the entire weekend you were in New York in bed together?”

“Ami,” he said, his voice low with warning.

“Hey, you’re the one looking at me like you’ve seen me naked and want to again,” she said. “Don’t blame me.”

He tossed back the rest of his drink, wished it was alcohol and not just soda, reminded himself that staying completely sober while Ami was in town for the first time since New York was a really, really good idea, and said, “That’s not how I’m looking at you.”

She put a hand on her hip. “Then how would you describe the way you’ve been watching me from across the room but totally ignoring me whenever we’re close enough to talk?”

“Like I’ve been jerking off practically every night for the past three months because I didn’t get you naked, and like since you got back to town I’ve been constantly about ten seconds away from picking you up, taking you home, and tying you to my bed for the next week or two.”

Okay, so even without alcohol he was going to be dangerously inappropriate. And honest. Just as he’d feared.

Her eyes went wide.

Then she grinned. “Yes. You’re right. That’s a much better, more specific, description.”

They are friends. Without benefits. Unfortunately.

Bayou with Benefits, an all-new single dad, small town rom-com from New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas is now available!

Michael LeClaire is small-town Louisiana. A firefighter. A single dad.
And Amelia Landry is New York City. A social media influencer. A model.
Sure, she’s his son’s favorite person on the planet.
And yeah, their families spend so much time together it’s hard to remember who shares DNA and who just shares secrets, inside jokes, and a sincere lack of boundaries.
And okay, he’s seen her nerdy side. Her sweet side. Her funny, self-deprecating side.
Fine, yes, resisting this woman has taken a saint’s share of willpower.
But he has to. He just cannot do long-distance. And he can’t have a casual fling with someone he’s known–and will know–forever.

Review – Bayou With Benefits by Erin Nicholas

Bayou With Benefits; Badges of Bayou #2
(Standalone within an interconnected series)

Publication Date: October 18, 2022

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

Author: Erin Nicholas

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Bayou With Benefits is a small town romance WITH all the benefits of a super sweet love story that stole my heart and wrapped it up in all the feels.

Michael LeClaire and Amelia Landry have grown up together, or more like their families have. Michael is five years older and when you are younger that age gap can feel like twenty years, but for both Michael and Amelia the moment they hit that magic age of noticing the opposite sex, let’s just say they noticed each other. However, several obstacles always stood in their way and those secret crushes stayed just that…secret, until…I’m just going to say…until.

Bayou With Benefits is sweet, steamy, and also pretty emotional with this completely endearing couple. It’s written a bit differently than Erin’s past Bayou books, where she’s woven the past, present and of course that always anticipated future epilogue, giving us a timeline that weaves together beautifully and we get to know Michael and Amelia in a different way, but it fit them perfectly as the story progressed.

While they seem to come from different worlds they are more alike than they both realize. He’s a firefighter saving lives, along with being a single father. Whereas, Ami is a social influencer/model, and through her influence she has a powerful voice that has a way of helping people and there is one person who looks up to her that means more than anyone in the world, Michael’s son, Andre.  He’s super sweet and their time together is amazing. I love anytime he’s on the page, it’s powerful.

The LeClaire and Landry families all make appearances throughout the book, which is wonderful. I love the big family feel within the small town atmosphere. It’s always great to return home with characters that feel like family.

Blog Tour – Irresistible Trouble by Pippa Grant

RELEASE BOOST
Title: Irresistible Trouble
Series: Copper Valley Fireballs #4
Author: Pippa Grant
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: September 29, 2022

BLURB

I, Cooper Rock, baseball god, worshipper of women, hometown hero, beloved son and brother, and owner of a well-deserved ego, have always reached for the stars. Usually in baseball.

In love? Nah. When you’ve played the field as much as I have and haven’t been bit by the bug, you’re immune.

Or so I thought until she walked back into my life.

Waverly Sweet. Pop music sensation. Universally beloved for good reason. She’s freaking awesome. Kind. Funny. Talented. Sexy as hell. Real. And still completely out of my league.

But I have been hit by the Waverly Sweet tour bus of love, tumbled head over heels, and come up in a field of Waverly-scented roses. This is it. She’s my one and only, and this time, I won’t screw it up.

I’m cleaning up my reputation. I’m ignoring the doubters. I’m channeling everything I have into proving to her that I can be the man she deserves.

No matter what else I have to sacrifice for love.

Including baseball.

Irresistible Trouble is a hilarious home run of a romcom about a baseball player whose ego is catching up to him, a pop star who’s a bit of a hot mess when the cameras aren’t looking (and sometimes when they are), and the kind of family and teammates that everyone deserves… in small doses. While this laugh-out-loud romance stands alone with a sweet-swoony HEA, you won’t go wrong if you dive into the entire Fireballs series, starting with Jock Blocked, first. And for more Cooper Rock cameos, check out Master Baker (a standalone featuring Cooper’s brother) and the Bro Code series.

New Release – Bad Girl Reputation by Elle Kennedy

Bad Girl Reputation Elle Kennedy

Bestselling author Elle Kennedy returns to Avalon Bay in this sexy second chance story about two exes who can’t stay away from each other, Bad Girl Reputation.

When former bad girl Genevieve West returns home for her mother’s funeral, she’s prepared to keep her distance from her ex-boyfriend, Evan Hartley. Their history is rife with turbulence. And passion. A heck of a lot of passion…which she’s trying desperately to forget.

But it’s impossible not to run into Evan in the small coastal town where they once ran wild. And the moment she sees her gorgeous ex again, it’s clear to Gen that Evan is still as unruly, sexy, and irresistible as ever. This time around, however, she’s resolved to walk a new path. No more partying. No more foolish mistakes. Her plan is to temporarily remain in town to help her father run his business, but the second he finds somebody else, she’s out of there.

Evan has other ideas. He knows they can be good together, but he just has to convince Genevieve of that, even if it means turning over a new leaf himself. But can a bad reputation ever truly be shed? Do second chances really work? Genevieve and Evan are about to find out.

https://geni.us/The Fling
Available on All Platforms

From USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR Jennifer Bernard comes a steamy, grumpy-sunshine romance set mostly in Lake Bittersweet, Minnesota.

It all started that summer in Lake Bittersweet…

Emmaline Curtis has never been outside the state of Minnesota before, so winning an all-expenses-paid trip to Hawaii is a dream. Back home, working the family farm and caring for her brother means precious little free time. So when she meets an intriguing hottie at the resort, she’s ready for anything. No last names. No personal details. Just two willing strangers enjoying each other in paradise; then Emmaline can go home with good memories and no chance of awkward future run-ins with Conor.

Conor Gault’s business trip turned sensual excursion is cut short by devastating news—his rock star father has unexpectedly passed. Suddenly he’s heading to a town he’s avoided for seventeen years. Lake Bittersweet, Minnesota. The place where one long-ago disastrous night changed the course of his life. The last person he expects to run into is Emmaline, the quirky knockout who’s been living rent-free in his head ever since Hawaii…and who just happens to be a local.

Before long, their sizzling attraction heats up again. Their worlds couldn’t be more different—he’s a wealthy financial whiz, she’s a farmgirl. But in a startling twist of fate, Conor and Emmaline discover their pasts are linked in ways they never imagined. Ways that may ensure their fiery affair will never be more than a temporary fling.

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 27, 2022
BLURB
Benson Bexley has always had a heart of stone.
Apparently, nothing has changed.
When he returns home after a decade gone, I recognize him right away.
How could I forget him?
He’s the same cocky flirt who slid dirty poetry to me in art class.
With the same stone-cold stare that shielded his soul from the world.
And that same sharp-edged jaw that cut straight through my heart like a dagger.
Fortunately, this time I see right through his arrogant charm.
Even better, he doesn’t remember who I am.
I have no intention of reminding him.
After all, it’s only a matter of time until his nomadic lifestyle takes him away again.
When his poetic charm strikes again, I play along.
Maybe it’s time he got a taste of his own medicine.
Revenge.
It’s not in my nature.
But Benson Bexley deserves nothing less.
It’s time for that heart of stone to shatter.

Review – Heart of Stone by K.K. Allen

Heart of Stone; Camp Bexley #3
(#3 within an interconnected series)

Publication Date: September 27, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Second Chance/Contemporary Romance

Author: K.K. Allen

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Grab the tissues and also prepare to smack Benson Bexley around a little bit because Heart of Stone is quite the emotional roller coaster ride, but an amazing ride it was!

When this book first started I did not like Benny Bexley very much. He was a bit skeevy and totally conceited, but I also knew beneath all of that bravado he was hurting. While all of the Bexley brothers went through a great tragedy years ago, Benson lost even more, as he lost his twin brother. Carrying this grief around for the past decade, having it weigh down on his shoulders only made him harden his heart to those around him, living life on the surface and never digging deep, but as the story went along and Benson dug into those long buried emotions….wow, he is one really great guy, with a really dirty mouth. I totally fell in love.

Brooklyn Kennedy had a major crush on Benson back in high school and he had no idea she really existed, at least not the real Brooklyn. It was unstandable considering those were the darkest days of his life, but she didn’t really understand back then. Fast forward to the present and Benson is back in town, a place he never thought he’d return to, but to pass the time he signs up for an art class, one that Brooklyn is teaching. All I’ll say is Brooklyn isn’t exactly happy to see the man who doesn’t remember her one bit.

I adored Brooklyn and her smart, feisty spirit. She also has the perfect softness to loosen up Benson’s hardness. He’s been going at the same speed for so long, it isn’t until he is challenged by Brooklyn that he actually slows down and softens up. Those moments require tissues, on the flip side there are also lots of moments where Benson’s sweetly, dirty mouth comes out to play and you might need a fan to cool down instead.

Heart of Stone and Benson Bexley have become my favorite Bexley book, but I do have a feeling that the youngest brother, Cayson, has a strong shot of over taking all of his older brothers.

Synopsis:
Benson Bexley always had a heart of stone.
Apparently nothing changes.

When he returns home after a decade gone, I recognize him right away.
How could I forget him?
He’s the same cocky flirt who slid dirty poetry to me in art class.
With the same stone-cold stare that shielded his soul from the world.
And that same sharp-edged jaw that cut straight through my heart like a dagger.

Fortunately, this time I see right through his arrogant charm.
Even better, he doesn’t remember who I am.
And I have no intention of reminding him.
After all, it’s only a matter of time until his nomadic life takes him away again.
When his poetic charm strikes again, I play along.
But maybe it’s time he got a taste of his own medicine.

Revenge
It’s not in my nature.
But Benson Bexley deserves nothing less.
It’s time for that heart of stone to shatter.

Review – The Fling by Jennifer Bernard

The Fling; Lake Bittersweet #2
(#2 within an interconnected series)

Publication Date: September 27, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Grumpy-Sunshine/Opposites Attract/Second Chance/Small Town Romance

Author: Jennifer Bernard

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Sweet, sweet, sweet with just a dash of bittersweet made The Fling a perfect reading romance.

The Fling is filled with super sweet moments, lots of giggle out loud times, reflective moments, steamy occasions, steamy times that also included laughing-which are my absolute favorite things to read or participate in…okay TMI…but seriously, when you meet the person you can laugh with in ALL occasions, that is truly your person.

The Fling included every possible element I love to read in a swoonworthy book and I couldn’t put it down for even one moment!! This book is a fated destiny, grumpy-sunshine, opposites attract kind of romance and I loved every page.

Conor Gault is a total workaholic and has worked hard to be the total opposite of his rockstar father who was a rebel in just about every aspect of his life. Conor spent the majority of his formative years with his socialite mother and she worked hard to keep him on the straight and narrow, but when Emmaline meets Conor in Hawaii, not while he’s on vacation mind you, his life is irreversibly changed when he spends the afternoon in her presence.

Now remember how I mentioned that Emmaline and Conor are destined…well what a small world that these two would meet in Hawaii when she’s from the small town of Lake Bittersweet and Conor is sort of from there as well, at least his famous father is.

It’s just a fling…that’s what they both agreed to…no identifiers, nothing that would give them away, just a lovely afternoon spent between two strangers. Fast forward six months and Conor is back in Lake Bittersweet settling his father’s affairs and who happens to appear like a beautiful Hawaiian dream?  The woman who hasn’t left his thoughts.

Conor and Emmaline are absolutely delightful together. This entire story, with their family and friends made my heart sing, especially how Jennifer wrote about Henry. My heart overflowed so many times when he was on the page.

The Fling is fun, but it’s also a great story of growth and change, like if you are a workaholic who might need to take a breath.

Synopsis:
It all started that summer in Lake Bittersweet…

Emmaline Curtis has never been outside the state of Minnesota before, so winning an all-expenses-paid trip to Hawaii is a dream. Back home, working the family farm and caring for her brother means precious little free time. So when she meets an intriguing hottie at the resort, she’s ready for anything. No last names. No personal details. Just two willing strangers enjoying each other in paradise; then Emmaline can go home with good memories and no chance of awkward future run-ins with Conor.

Conor Gault’s business trip turned sensual excursion is cut short by devastating news—his rock star father has unexpectedly passed. Suddenly he’s heading to a town he’s avoided for seventeen years. Lake Bittersweet, Minnesota. The place where one long-ago disastrous night changed the course of his life. The last person he expects to run into is Emmaline, the quirky knockout who’s been living rent-free in his head ever since Hawaii…and who just happens to be a local.

Before long, their sizzling attraction heats up again. Their worlds couldn’t be more different—he’s a wealthy financial whiz, she’s a farmgirl. But in a startling twist of fate, Conor and Emmaline discover their pasts are linked in ways they never imagined. Ways that may ensure their fiery affair will never be more than a temporary fling.

Blog Tour – Gotta Be Bayou by Erin Nicholas

How do you get over a woman you never should have been, ahem, under in the first place?

Gotta Be Bayou, an all-new grumpy-sunshine, small town romance from New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas is now available!

Just when FBI special agent Spencer Landry had decided to forget about investigative journalist Maxine-Max-Keller and their one hot night together, there’s a threat made against her and Spencer’s protective instincts get all riled up. Again.

So now they’re shacking up on the Louisiana bayou and pretending to be in love so he can keep Max safe until the guy is apprehended.

Considering their chemistry and that he can not stop thinking about the gorgeous-and-doesn’t-know-it, smart-mouthed, bold-and-yet-vulnerable redhead, this could be a fun few days, right?

Nope. She’s all wrong for him.

And she hasn’t forgotten he can be kind of a jerk.

Sure, the naked-times are great, but he told her exactly what he wants— a bubbly, sweet school teacher who bakes him brownies and loves to cuddle—and Max ain’t it.

Max not only doesn’t bake, no one has ever called her sweet. And cuddling? Shudder.

Plus his bossiness is super annoying for someone who’s been taking care of herself all her life. But now they’re stuck together and dammit, besides being hot and very good with his mouth, Spencer is pretty irresistible with baby goats, little kids, and attempts at baking. And don’t forget alpha-protective. All of which makes her stomach feel very swoop-y. No wonder her clothes keep falling off.

But this is a temporary situation and they’re only faking it. So falling for the guy is a terrible idea.

She really should have kept that in mind.

Keep reading for a look inside Gotta Be Bayou!

She’d fallen asleep on him.

Literally.

Well, her feet were on him anyway. Actually, her legs from the knees down.

She’d started just propped against the opposite end of the couch, with her crossword puzzle book open on the arm. She’d mostly focused on the puzzle, but he’d noticed her smiling and even laughing a couple of times at the TV.

Eventually, she’d propped her head on her hand and just watched. Then her eyes started drifting shut. Then her head was on the arm of the couch.

But when she wanted to get comfortable, she got comfortable.

She’d scooted down to rest her head on the couch cushion and stretched out. Including putting her feet in Spencer’s lap.

He’d had to catch her heels in his hands to keep her from kicking him in the balls.

And then he’d just held her feet, rubbing his thumbs along the arches of her feet, and absorbing the sound of her contented sigh and loving the way she cuddled deeper into the couch.

He’d wanted her to feel safe and be comfortable and relaxed.

Mission accomplished.

The woman was sound asleep.

At 8:30 p.m.

The episode ended and Spencer realized he didn’t remember a thing from what he’d watched. He’d been paying attention to Max.

Of course he’d started with the way her soft cotton shorts molded to the curve of her hips and ass. The way the matching tank hugged her waist and breasts. There was no way he could have ignored that. He was drawn to this woman and the part that didn’t confuse him was his attraction to her body.

Now, having those sweet curves within touching distance again and barely covered, absolutely drew his attention. But with her asleep, and him unable to really do anything, he also had the chance to simply study her up close.

Her eyelashes were pale and had a reddish hue. Of course they did. She was a redhead. But he’d never thought about the color of a woman’s eyelashes before. Now he was fascinated. Did she wear mascara? He was going to have to pay attention to see the next time she was awake.

She stirred, shifting, moving her feet against his hands and he stroked a hand up one calf. It wasn’t perfectly smooth. There was just a slight prickle, but he didn’t mind at all. In fact, he wanted to feel that against his thighs and hips as she wrapped her legs around him. It was real and he wanted to feel her legs in every stage from freshly shaved to haven’t-had-a-chance-for-days.

Wow, she was truly asleep. He should make her go to bed.

“Max?” he asked softly.

She didn’t even wiggle.

“Max?” he asked a little louder, squeezing her foot gently.

She just breathed in deeply, then out.

He should just carry her into bed. He could just scoop her up and take her into the bedroom.

Spencer shifted her legs so he could stand. Then he leaned over. She was on her side, so he pushed gently against her shoulder, rolling her to her back. She went with a sigh, one hand moving to rest on her chest. Perfect. Spencer slid an arm under her knees and one behind her back.

And everything was great until he started to lift.

She came awake suddenly. She kicked her legs, flailed her arms, and her head lifted instinctively to look around. Her forehead hit Spencer in the chin. Hard.

His head snapped back and his teeth clamped down on his tongue.

“Fuck!” he swore in surprised pain.

“Ahhh!” she yelled.

She was still kicking and waving her arms and he unceremoniously dropped her one foot back onto the couch cushions.

“Max! It’s me!”

She kicked out, her shin connecting with his thigh.

That fucking hurt too.

“Max!” He pinned her arms down against the couch. “Max! It’s Spencer!”

Her eyes were wide and not fully focused.

She just yelled again. “Ahhhhh!”

Dammit. The cottage next door was going to think they needed to call the cops.

Which was Zander.

Spencer did not want Zander showing up here, grinning and smirking and writing up a report about how Spencer had tried to sweetly carry Max to bed and she’d thought he was attacking her.

“Maxine!” he said sharply, putting a leg across hers to keep her from kicking and, against his better judgement, placing a hand over her mouth. “Stop it. It’s me.”

Her eyes flew to his as he put his face directly in front of hers.

“It’s Spencer.”

She suddenly went still. Her gaze focused and she stopped moving and he felt her pull in a long breath.

He waited another few seconds, making sure that she realized who was holding her down.

Slowly he removed his hand. “Okay?” he asked.

She drew in another long breath and blew it out. She nodded. “Yeah.”

“Holy shit, Max.”

“What happened?”

“You were sleeping like the dead, so I decided to carry you into the bedroom. And you turned into the Tasmanian devil.”

“Well, I’m not used to people picking me up in the middle of the night.”

That made him chuckle. “It’s not even 9 p.m.”

“Well… still.”

He liked that she was at a loss for words. That was unusual.

Slowly, he became aware of the fact that he was pinning her to the couch. With almost his entire body.

In spite of the fact that she’d been fighting off an intruder in her imagination and he’d been fearing for his manhood, his eyes, nose, and jaw, it didn’t take long for his body to register that this felt really nice.

The couch was big enough for the two of them to lie together. He wasn’t entirely on top of her, but almost half of him was pinning more than half of her to the cushions.

“I, um… didn’t mean to squash you. Self-preservation instinct.”

She smiled. “You’re not squashing me.” Her voice was soft and a little breathless.

Their gazes locked. “I did this, honestly, to keep you from hurting me or yourself. But mostly me.”

She wet her lips and nodded. “I believe you.”

“So, I could probably get up now. You seem a lot more calm.”

“Funny, I don’t exactly feel calm.”

His heart kicked against his rib cage. A moment ago she’d been ready to claw his eyes out. The moment before that she’d been so deeply asleep that she hadn’t realized he was even there. But now, her gaze was hot and she was breathing fast, and she was definitely not wearing a bra with this pajama set.

Spencer’s entire body responded. “You fell asleep really fast. And very deep,” he said, his voice husky.

“I often fall asleep on the couch. Never that deeply, though. I guess I felt really safe with you.”

Damn, he liked that. He felt the corner of his mouth curl. “Until I tried to pick you up.”

“Sorry. Instinct.”

“Honestly the cop part of me is very glad that your instinct is to fight hard when someone does something unexpected.”

“Good.” She gave a little nod. “I guess that means you just need to be sure I’m expecting anything you do.”

He nodded slowly and his gaze dropped to her mouth. “Good idea. For instance, if I was going to kiss you, I should make sure that you knew that.”

She nodded. “Right.”

“Max.”

“Yeah?”

“I’m going to kiss you.”

“Good.”

Blog Tour – Resisting the Grump by Ashley Munoz

Once upon a time he broke me, and for that, I refuse to fall for him again.

Resisting the Grump, an all-new small-town romantic comedy full of heat and humor from bestselling author Ashley Munoz is available now!

Stalking the town recluse wasn’t exactly wise.

Davis was five years older than me…antisocial and temperamental. And there was the little fact that he didn’t know I existed.
Still, I gave him my heart, and he crushed it.

So I picked up the pieces and ran away to New York City. I had a plan that kept my heart intact for four years.
But one phone call changed everything.

Returning home meant facing the past…and the man who ruined me.
I had hoped that the mountain had swallowed him whole. Alas, as I set out to help my parents, I discover he’s not only alive and well, but that they apparently love the jerk.

He has no idea that we have a past, which is both a relief and salt in the wound.
I promise myself I’ll ignore how his eyes linger on me, or the way his touch feels like a live wire, and I’ll remember that once upon a time he broke me and for that I refuse to fall for him again.
But I can’t control that he seems to be falling for me this time.

Excerpt

“Can I kiss you, Rae?” he whispered, moving along my skin.
Shaking my head, my throat bobbed. “No.”
“You don’t seem like the kind of girl who likes to be asked, so I’m just going to do it.”
“Try it and see what happens,” I smiled wickedly.
He stared at me, a tiny smile lifting in the corner of his mouth. “You can’t resist me forever.”
“Watch me.” I glared defiantly, hating that he’d called out something that simmered so close to my core.
His body pressed against mine for a second longer then it vanished. “I think I’ll kiss you when you’re least expecting it. Maybe in church or something.”
“Why bother with this ruse? I overheard you talking that night in the garage. I know my dad asked you to place the order, and I know you think I’m too much work to befriend.” My palms went flat against the brick, so I could somehow find balance.
His stormy glare cut through me, as if I were a cold stick of butter and he was the searing knife, just pulled from the fire.
“You misheard…or at least misunderstood.”
Tilting my head, I asked, “Did he tell you to place the order and lie to me?”
Without a single hitch in his voice, or flicker in his gaze, he answered. “Yes.”
“Then I don’t know what’s left to—”
His grip returned to my waist as his body pressed into mine, pushing me tighter against the brick at my back.
“You misunderstood…I don’t want to be your friend, Rae, and you are a lot of work, but if you haven’t noticed, work doesn’t scare me off. I like work. I like trouble. You’re a fucking delicious mixture of both, and please understand me when I say this”—he lowered his head, his lips just barely a breath away from mine—“I like kissing you.”

So I picked up the pieces and ran away to New York City. I had a plan that kept my heart intact for four years.
But one phone call changed everything.

Returning home meant facing the past…and the man who ruined me.
I had hoped that the mountain had swallowed him whole. Alas, as I set out to help my parents, I discover he’s not only alive and well, but that they apparently love the jerk.

He has no idea that we have a past, which is both a relief and salt in the wound.
I promise myself I’ll ignore how his eyes linger on me, or the way his touch feels like a live wire, and I’ll remember that once upon a time he broke me and for that I refuse to fall for him again.
But I can’t control that he seems to be falling for me this time.

Review – 50 Ways to Win Back Your Lover by Kelly Siskind

50 Ways to Win Back Your Lover; The Bower Boys #1
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: September 6, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Romantic Comedy/Small Town/Second Chance Romance

Author: Kelly Siskind

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
ALL the big heart-googly eyed emojis and stars for 50 Ways to Win Back Your Lover!!! One of the most adorable, completely male POV, books I’ve read in a long time!

I can already tell that the entire Bower family is going to worm their way into my heart and reside there until the end of time. Edgar has already set up shop and made a permanent residence in there, pink couch and all…I’ll let him explain the princess decor, don’t worry, he makes it look very manly. But, back to Edgar and his 50 ways to win back his girl…he is one of the most likeable and relatable characters that I’ve instantly fallen in love with basically from page one in awhile. He’s filled with quirky humor and tons of internal freak outs that made me giggle over and over. He’s also totally sweet and adorkably charming in his own way…seriously, what’s not to like…aside from the fact that he completely and totally disappeared ten years ago and broke his girlfriend’s heart, but hey, he’s back and trying to make amends.

Delilah Moon – great name by the way – is still residing in their small hometown of Windfall and she has that small town on her side when Edgar comes back. I love small town books because of the close-tight knit communities and this book does it justice.

Seriously, or maybe, not so seriously, 50 Ways is filled with tons of humor, great secondary characters, and a likeable guy who feels really deeply about pretty much everything and everyone in his life. Winning back his first love should be a piece of cake-right?

I can’t wait to return to Windfall and see how each of Edgar’s brothers fare as each of them return to their former lives after a decade of being gone. The giddiness makes me chuckle everytime I think of it.

Synopsis:
From Kelly Siskind comes a slow-burn romantic comedy about one man’s creative attempt to win back his high school sweetheart after a change in fortune gives them a second chance at love.

Growing up, I had it all—my art, close friends, a gorgeous girlfriend who owned my heart—but then my life exploded.

Turns out my father was laundering money, and my whole family got shoved into witness protection. No notice. No chance to explain. I was ripped away from beautiful, blue-eyed Delilah Moon, shattering both our worlds.

A decade later, fate has given us a second chance.

The cartel my father worked for has been wiped out. I’ve returned to my hometown, determined to win back the love of my life. But Delilah is engaged.

Or . . . is she?

I’m almost positive she’s lying about her fiancé to protect her heart. Which means I need to up my game.

I’ve made a list of fifty ways to prove we’re meant to be. Except Delilah’s barely looking at me, never mind swooning. I have a feeling my disappearance scarred her more than she’s admitting, and no one in town will tell me what happened . . .

Review – Resisting the Grump by Ashley Munoz

Resisting the Grump
(Standalone)

Publication Date: September 2, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Small Town/Contemporary Romance

Author: Ashley Munoz

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
A fantastic small-town book with a lovely romantic twist. Resisting the Grump completely melted my heart and wrapped my up in all the warm fuzzy feelings of perfectly matched love.

Rae and Davis are soulmates, but their road to getting there, while completely endearing and paved with all the butterfly feelings that constantly gave me giddy emotions, was not full of sunshine and magic. However, their story was a pure reading delight and Munoz brought her A game in crafting it.

When love is right and two people are meant to be together there sometimes are barriers to stop that from happening. Sometimes it just takes timing and the right placement for everything to line up accordingly, which Rae and Davis discovered along their journey.

Five years younger than Davis, Rae was infatuated with him at a very young age. Davis, however, did not find the crush quite as cute, but he also had his reasons for being a huge grump. Fast forward several years and the tables have turned. Davis doesn’t recognize Rae as the young girl who used to follow his every move, she’s now a beautiful young woman and he can’t stop thinking about her, too bad this time around she wants nothing to do with him.

Resisting the Grump is sweet and adorable, while also incredibly steamy…Davis is one dirty AF talker, oh my….it’s also full of emotions from both Rae and Davis. I’ll let you in on one little tidbit…Davis isn’t the only grumpy gus in this book, but the two of them verbally sparring…I’ll just call that foreplay.

This book definitely falls into the must read category. It’s a feel good, don’t miss kind of story.

Synopsis:
Ashley Munoz, brings a deliciously fun small-town romance, full of hilarious antics and a grumpy recluse-with no idea he has to not only win the girl but redeem himself in the process.

Stalking the town recluse wasn’t exactly wise.

Davis was five years older than me…antisocial and temperamental. And there was the little fact that he didn’t know I existed.

Still, I gave him my heart, and he crushed it.

So I picked up the pieces and ran away to New York City. I had a plan that would keep my heart intact for years.

But one phone call changed everything.

Returning home meant facing the past…and the man who ruined me.

I had hoped that the mountain had swallowed him whole.

But, as I set out to help my parents, I discover he’s not only alive and well, but that they apparently love the jerk.

He has no idea that we have a past, which is both a relief and salt in the wound.

I promise myself I’ll ignore how his eyes linger on me, or how his touch feels like a live wire, and I’ll remember that once upon a time he broke me, and for that, I refuse to fall for him again.

But I can’t control that he seems to be falling for me this time.
