REVIEW:

I’ve read nearly everything Lila Monroe has written to date, and there hasn’t been a single one of her romantic comedies that I haven’t enjoyed. Maverick Mogul is the first book in her new Billionaire Bachelors Club series, and it’s off to a hot and hilarious start. Monroe’s writing never fails to pull me into her stories with wit, charming details and fun plots. She fills the pages with imaginative elements and interesting side characters which paint a vibrant picture for the reader. But it’s Lila’s creative plots, endearing couples and their sexy romances that keep me reaching for her work.

Maverick Mogul was a fake date romance featuring commitment-phobe Charlie and newly unemployed Grace. Charlie has a summer full of weddings, and to stave off the inevitable questions about his love life, he needs a date to bring to these weddings without strings or commitments—strictly a business arrangement. Enter his cousin, Olivia who owns a date-for-hire agency and is a crossover character from Wild Card, book three in Monroe’s Billionaire Bachelors series.

Maverick Mogul was a light-hearted, easy reading fake date romcom high on the heat and humor. An amusing plot and a sexy, sweet, swoon-worthy romance about a couple I was pulling for from the start, I smiled the whole way through. Charlie and Grace’s love story was an entertaining, addictive, fun-to-read romance. Maverick Mogul by Lila Monroe gets 4.5 smooches from me!

EXCERPT:

“Look guys,” I hold up my hands, “I appreciate your concern, honestly. But I’ve got this. I’m awesome! I know exactly what I’m doing—everything’s going to be fine.”

If this were a movie, now would be the time when the narrator’s voiceover comes on and informs the audience that I did not, in fact, know what I was doing and nothing—nothing—was going to be f*cking fine.

~Connor Daniels, Getting Real

REVIEW:

I loved Emma Chase’s Getting Real so much! It’s a single dad, age-gap romance featuring a doctor and nurse who are co-workers at a small town hospital. Connor is 42, divorced and a single father to three boys. He’s handsome, he’s got a great extended family and he’s an ER doctor. Violet is 30, she’s single, and she’s a nurse who has a big old secret crush on Connor. She’s hilarious, smart and she’s great at her job. She’s honest, down-to-earth, a little clumsy and has a huge heart. She’s also gorgeous.

I loved these characters, and I loved their story. The Getting Some series is my favorite by Emma Chase—I’ve read all three books, and I’ve enjoyed each one immensely. Violet and Conner’s love story was a wonderfully addictive blend of emotion, angst, steam and sweet romance. Getting Real was a feel-good romance that had me swooning, sighing and smiling the whole way through. Five smooches from me for Getting Real by Emma Chase!

COVER REVEAL: Taste by Melanie Harlow

TASTE, an all-new enemies-to-lovers, forced proximity, surprise pregnancy small-town romantic comedy from USA Today and #1 Amazon Bestselling Author, Melanie Harlow, releases March 7th! Check out the delicious cover!

I’m terrified of falling for him.

But one taste might be all it takes…

 

Cover Designer: Hang Le    |    Photographer: Michelle Lancaster    |    Cover Model: Chase Mattson

 

The last person on earth I want to be stranded with is Gianni Lupo.

But thanks to the blizzard of the century, I’m trapped in a roadside motel room with that cocky bastard for two straight days.

With one small bed.

Some women might thank Mother Nature for delivering a polar vortex that maroons them with six feet of solid muscle, those deep blue eyes, that sexy grin–but not me. I’ve known Gianni Lupo all my life, and he’s never brought me anything but bad luck and trouble.

So when the tension between us explodes with enough fiery heat to melt my icy defenses, I should have known what the disastrous end result would be–

A big fat plus sign.

After the snow melts, I’m left with more than just memories of the night we spent keeping each other warm. And he might be a rising star on the culinary scene, but he’s got no idea how to handle this bun in the oven.

He says he wants to do the right thing, but I’m not about to spend the rest of my life feeling like someone settled for me.

But just when I think I’ve got Gianni Lupo all figured out, he gives me a taste of the man he could be, of the family we could become, of the way he could love me if I let him.

I’m terrified of falling for him.

But one taste might be all it takes.

BLOG TOUR: Put Me In Detention by Meghan Quinn

PUT ME IN DETENTION, an all-new drunk-in-Vegas, surprise wedding teacher romance from USA Today Bestselling Author, Meghan Quinn, is available now!

 

“I asked for an annulment. He said no…”

 

“You got married on your divorce-cation?”

That would unfortunately be correct.

I was hanging with the girls, celebrating my divorce when I saw him, my crush, sitting in the corner of the bar all alone. Being single and looking for a wild night, I asked him if he wanted to join me. To my delight, he said yes.

Drinks were consumed, fun was had and then . . . one drunken conversation with a cranky gondolier in Las Vegas led to an Uber lift through a drive-thru wedding chapel with the incredibly hot, British bad boy, Pike Greyson.

On paper, it seemed like I hit the jackpot. And if I wasn’t fresh from a toxic marriage, I would have absolutely noticed the finer things about him.

But I wanted nothing to do with being married, so when I arrived back home from my eventful weekend in Vegas, the last thing I expected to see was a new doting husband already moved in.

I asked for an annulment, he pulled a Ross Geller and said no.

That’s right, he said NO! Instead, he asked for three months to prove we could be good together.

Insanity clearly knocked him in the head and the only way I could convince him to give up on our sham of a marriage was to show him just how wrong we were for each other. Only problem with that was, he saw right through my every prank, every trick, and every yearning emotion I attempted to mask.

REVIEW:

Put Me In Detention was a fun blend of drunk-in-Vegas, teacher romance with a splash of surprise wedding, and it came together fabulously in one of Meghan Quinn’s heartfelt and hilarious romantic comedies. Pike, a motorcycle-riding British teacher, works with Cora’s brother, Arlo. Cora is in Vegas commemorating her divorce with a girls trip. She’s looking to get her groove back on with some harmless, one-night-only fun when she runs into Pike, her not-so-secret crush. Together they paint Vegas red, and in a complete surprise to them both, wake up the next morning married.

Cora and Pike had natural chemistry, but having just come out of a long, drawn-out and nasty divorce, Cora is not at all pleased that she somehow wound up married again, even if it’s to the seriously hot guy she’s been crushing on. I enjoyed the utter ridiculousness of the situation Cora had gotten herself into, and her attempts to drive Pike off were hilarious. Pike had his own reasons for wanting to give this marriage a chance, and as she was trying to push him away, he was patiently trying to pull her closer. The only problem was that as Pike was developing real feelings that he genuinely wanted to explore with Cora, he was also concealing a secret that could upend everything. On the surface, Put Me In Detention was a funny romcom, but as is always the way with Meghan’s storytelling, she masterfully hides the emotion waiting for the exact right moment to spring it on her readers. Quinn doesn’t hold back when doling out those emotions, and beneath all the layers of humor and heat, she’s buried some serious feels. The reason I find her work so dang addictive is precisely because of the way she blends her humor and heat with heart-rending emotion.

Put Me In Detention was a slow-burning love story brimming with heart-tugging emotion. Readers get a full dose of the beloved side characters from the other books in this interconnected series of standalones, especially the curious Keiko. Full of charm, comedy, passion and heart, Quinn crafted another unputdownable story. I swooned, blushed and laughed my way through this book loving every single second of it. Five smooches from me for Put Me In Detention by Meghan Quinn!

RELEASE BLITZ: The Best Men by Lauren Blakely & Sarina Bowen

THE BEST MEN, an all-new enemies-to-lovers, opposites-attract M/M romance from #1 New York Times Bestselling Author, Lauren Blakely, and USA Today Bestselling Author, Sarina Bowen, is available now!

The more nights I spend with the other best man, the more I want days too…

 

 

In my defense, I was left alone with a bottle of single-malt and a life-long penchant for protecting my baby sister. Still, that’s no excuse to send ten drunk-texts on why her hasty marriage would be a mistake.

If only I had just texted my sister. But nope. I accidentally sent the message to her, her groom, and his super hot wingman.

I also used the phrase “super hot wingman,” so I’d like to die now.

Instead, I have to plan a wedding with the aforementioned hottie and share a too-small guesthouse in steamy Miami.

Three days in the sun with the cocky, charming former athlete who likes to push my buttons? Fine, two can play at that let’s-infuriate-each-other game.

Until Asher ups the stakes with one wildly sexy suggestion. A no-strings fling, then I go back to my single dad life in New York, and he returns to his star-studded one.

Sign me up.

But the more nights I spend with the other best man, the more I want days too, and that just can’t happen. Especially when I find out the real reason why…

REVIEW:

I’ve been pretty vocal about my Lauren Blakely fandom. Her writing is one of my happy places, especially when it’s one of her wonderful contemporaries or romcoms. I’m not as familiar with Sarina Bowen’s work, however, having read only two of her individual works, but that’s something I’m going rectify this year. I love a good M/M romance, but admittedly with a plethora of romantic fictional options to choose from, they’re just not the first type of story I reach for when deciding what to read next. I have, however, read many M/M romances, I’ve enjoyed the ones that I’ve read, and I will absolutely read more of them in the future. But when it’s a Lauren Blakely M/M romance, I’m not only going to make time, I’m going to bump it up on my TBR. Blakely’s earned this from me by consistently giving me the stories I want to read, and unsurprisingly, she’s become as one of my favorite authors as a result. But more specifically her work as an LGBTQ author has earned this attention from me for the same reasons. Her previous M/M works have consistently given me the same quality romantic reading experienced has her traditional romances. In fact, her maiden voyage into the genre, A Guy Walks Into My Bar, has became one of my all-time top favorites of Blakely’s.

I’m going to cut straight to the chase here, and come right out with it by stating The Best Men was a complete joy to read. It was passionate, it was funny, it sexy and hit all the right notes with emotion and feels. I don’t want to spoil this story, but Blakely devotion to writing gorgeous LGBTQ romances is evident on every page. I’ve said it before, and I’m going to keep saying it—this type of storytelling is a passion pursuit for Blakely. Bowen and Blakely blended their writing styles together magnificently in The Best Men, and while I’m not certain precisely how these two authors divvied up the writing in this collaboration, as a long-time Blakely reader, there was an amplification in the humor and the heat in this story that I believe could be attributed to Bowen’s voice. I absolutely loved it, so much so that I hope there will be more collaborations from the two of them.

Mark and Asher came to life entrenched in an enemies-to-lovers, opposites-attract story that kept the air pods in my ears and a fully-charged spare set at the ready. Two vastly different men in a romance that genuinely took the both of them by surprise, there was a bit of an Odd Couple vibe to the pairing of Mark and Asher—well, except for the fact that they were much better looking and this was a far sexier relationship. This couple meets as a result of the upcoming wedding of Mark’s sister, Hannah, to Asher’s best friend, Flip. Right off the bat, they do not hit it off. Mark and Asher are about as different as night and day or black and white—or Felix and Oscar. Mark is a recently divorced single father who is also a virgin bisexual. Asher, well, he’s none of those things. He’s worldly and confident in his sexuality, and he’s also cocky and so dang handsome it literally drives Mark insane. It isn’t until they’re forced into close proximity during the planning phase of their loved ones’ wedding that they really get to know each other. The sparks start flying, but as Asher is about to embark on a yearlong professional assignment abroad while Mark is anchored here, practically speaking, not a whole lot can come of all their swirling chemistry.

The Best Men was everything I want in my contemporary romance reads. It was a feel-good, lighthearted love story full of hope and the kind of emotional depth that pulls at your heartstrings—not breaks them. It was sexy and romantic, and it had those wonderful will-they-or-won’t-they moments that keep me at the edge of my seat. There was an abundance of brilliantly snappy and naturally witty banter that was entertaining and its own sort of foreplay. The undeniable burn of attraction, both physical and emotional, as these two men gave into their feelings is exactly what I want to experience in my romances whether they be M/F or M/M. Blakely and Bowen brought all of this together perfectly in a story that held my attention captive from start to finish. Amusing, heart-tugging and seriously steamy, I loved every single moment and word of The Best Men. I thoroughly enjoyed this authoring pairing, and I hope for more collaborations from them. It goes without saying that I’ll be reading more of Lauren Blakely, but as a result of this book, I’ll definitely be seeking out Sarina Bowen’s individual works as well. Five smooches from me for The Best Men by Lauren Blakely and Sarina Bowen!

COVER REVEAL: The Assignment by Penelope Ward

THE ASSIGNMENT, an all-new contemporary romance from New York Times Bestselling Author, Penelope Ward, releases February 28th! Check out this gorgeous cover!

Title:  THE ASSIGNMENT
Author:  PENELOPE WARD
Genre:  STANDALONE CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
Cover Design:  LETITIA HASSER, RBA DESIGNS
Photographer:  SCOTT HOOVER
Model:  JAY BYARS
Release Date:  FEBRUARY 28, 2022

 

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

Reasons why I should not be drawn to Troy Serrano.
Number one: He’s obnoxious.
Number two: He and I were enemies over a decade ago in high school.
Number three: He’s my friend’s ex-boyfriend.
I could go on and on, really.
When my boss gives me an unwanted assignment and tells me it involves spending time with the grandson of one of our residents—the grandson turns out to be Troy. He’s now as successful as he is undeniably handsome.
Lucky me. Four hours a week of having to deal with his insufferable personality and unsolicited advice.
The only consolation is getting to stare at his annoyingly gorgeous face in between our many arguments.
Eventually, though, we slowly warm to each other and our outings become something I actually look forward to.
What’s happening to me?
Apparently, I misunderstood the assignment, because it certainly didn’t include thinking about Troy when I close my eyes at night, imagining what it would be like with him—just once. All the while hating myself for fantasizing about a guy who’s all wrong for me. A guy whose car I keyed back in the day. (Long story, but he deserved it.)
That’s all this is—a fantasy.
Well, until that one night at the bar.
The night Troy and I run into each other, and all of our pent-up frustration comes barreling out.
Still, I refuse to accept that it means anything.
There’s no way the guy I’m supposed to hate is also the one I can’t live without.
