Excerpt from THE UPSIDE OF FALLING:

Head turned down, pushing the sleeves of his white Henley up his arms, he swaggers toward me. His jeans hang low on his hips, held up by the same brown belt he wore the other night. His narrow waist directs my eyes to the center of his jeans, and I can’t help wonder what might be behind the crotch of his pants.

And then there is his chest. Barrel like, broad and prominent. His thick biceps showcase his strength, and the fabric of his shirt stretches over his shoulders and forearms.

Having spent a lot of time at the gym, I’ve seen every body type, but Colby’s is different. He’s strong, built, but not like a body builder. His body seems to suggest the only kind of weight he’s been lifting is his own body, pushup after pushup. I can’t imagine there being barbells in his workouts, but I can imagine logs, cadets, and heavy machinery. He has working muscles, the kind you earn from hard, dedicated work on the field. In a word? Impressive.

Walking up to Stryder, he grips his friend’s shoulder and says something into his ear. A smirk crosses Stryder’s face before he moves over to our side of the bowling alley and takes Colby’s place.

Is he leaving? Already?

Might as well at this point. It’s not like he’s going to talk to me, not after my pathetic attempt at a bet. I should have known I was going to hang out in the gutter all night. It’s where I usually am when I’m bowling. I blame the ball. The thing has a vendetta against me.

Sighing, I prop my chin in my hand and watch Stryder expertly toss his ball down the lane, getting a strike . . . once again. And just like every other strike, he pumps his arm up in the air and celebrates. We get it, you’re good, no need to—

“Hey.”

That voice . . .

Stunned, eyes wide, not able to move, not wanting to scare him away, I keep my eyes trained forward, soaking in that beautifully deep voice of his for a brief moment before saying, “Hey.”

“Can I sit here?”

Still keeping my eyes trained forward, I say, “Sure.”

My body tingles with awareness of how close he is to me, that fresh laundry scent invading my senses, prickling the little hairs on my arm. My body leans toward his, wanting a little more, searching for anything else he might give me. I don’t know why he’s choosing to engage me in conversation, but I’m sure as hell not moving while he does.

“Sorry about tonight,” he says and he actually sounds sincere.

“Why are you sorry?” I mumble.

Reaching around, he takes my cheek in his hand. The callouses on his palm rubbing against my skin is a welcome sensation. As I’m turned toward him, I steady my breathing. I’m having a hard time slowing my heart rate because of his close proximity, and the unexpected touch shooting a wave of heat through my veins.

“I’m sorry you didn’t get to ask me any questions. I didn’t think you were going to suck that bad.” A playful smile tugs at his lips, and my heart sinks to the floor. Oh God, he’s so gorgeous, especially when he smiles.

Matching his smirk, I say, “I didn’t think I was going to suck that bad either.”

“I feel bad.”

“You should.” That garners a laugh, deep and throaty, the sound cloaking me like a shield, protecting me from the outside world, bringing me into a little bubble where we are the only two that exist.

“Ask me a question.”

Shocked, I swallow hard and say, “Really?”

He nods and holds up his fingers. “You get three.”

“Oh, three? Wow, I feel like you just gave me the key to your soul.”

“Yeah, three questions I didn’t have before.” Tapping my chin, I try to think of good questions, but now that I have him willing and waiting, nothing comes to mind. I wasn’t prepared for this, he caught me off-guard, and now I feel I can’t be strategic about my probing. “Hmm . . . what do you like to do on the weekends?”

“Jump,” he answers.

Searching his eyes, lips quirked, I say, “Uh, you’re going to have to be more specific than that. What kind of jumping are we talking here? Like jump roping? Because that seems kind of weird to do on the weekends, and if you tell me you’re in some kind of jump-roping club at the academy, I’m not going to believe you.”

His lips curve up as he scratches the side of his jaw. “Jump out of airplanes.”

Oh.

Oh.

That’s . . .

Uh, that’s really hot.

“So you just casually jump out of airplanes?”

“I’m part of the Wings of Blue, the academy’s parachute team. We jump every day, at least two to three times a day after class and before dinner, depending on wind and ceiling limits. On the weekends, some of the guys, including Stryder and me, go to Springs East Airport and do civilian jumps. The more jumps we get in, the higher the chance we’ll be considered for big demonstrations, like parachuting into football games and major sporting events for the Rockies and Broncos.” Ummmm. Did anyone else just hear how many words he gifted me? And seriously? Does the man have no clue how incredibly sexy he is when he talks about something he loves? The expression on his face . . .

“Wow, that’s . . . that’s really hot.” I chuckle. “Sorry, I don’t mean to fangirl over your parachuting, but I guess I wasn’t expecting that answer. You just jump out of planes?”

He slowly nods. “Every day.”

“Anything to get you up in the clouds, huh?”

“Yeah,” he answers shyly, rubbing his jaw. “Okay, next question.”

Yeah. Send help.

My Brother’s Billionaire Best Friend by Max Monroe Review

5 SMOOCHES!

REVIEW:

I have yet to read a book by the talented author duo that is Max Monroe that I haven’t thoroughly enjoyed. Always hilarious, their romantic comedies pack a one-two punch of steam and story. Creative, imaginative plots, endearing, relatable characters and romances that are as heart-tugging as they are heart-pounding, Max and Monroe deliver the goods every single time. Teetering on the edge of ridiculous, the humor in their stories is the kind of stuff that makes readers laugh audibly, so considered yourself warned should you attempt reading their books in public.

My Brother’s Billionaire Best Friend piqued my interest because I love the brother’s best friend/best friend’s little sister trope, especially when it’s coupled with an unrequited, adolescent crush. I loved Maybe Willis. She was innocently naïve, and she was completely oblivious to the fact that she was gorgeous. Her sense of humor and her slightly awkward social ineptitude made her such a charming character. But it was her drive and determination, the way that she set her sights on what she wanted and made like Nike and just did it that made her the perfect match for billionaire Milo Ives.

Milo Ives, or Billionaireman as Maybe dubbed him, is a pretty down-to-earth guy. Hard working, driven and loyal, he jumps at the chance to help little Maybe Willis with some connections for her job hunt when her brother, Evan, the CFO of Milo’s company, asks. He hasn’t seen her in nearly a decade, and he’s still envisioning the starry-eyed, awkward teenage girl she was the last time he saw her. He was ill prepared for goddess she’s grown into. Her sweet, innocent seduction of him was blistering hot, yet wholly hilarious—thanks to Maybe’s self-appointed new best friend, Lena, the boho-chic trust fund baby/barista/relationship guru. Their love story was unique in that aside from the heat and the humor their journey included, there was also a coming-of-age, poignant quality to it that made Maybe and Milo’s romance totally swoon-worthy, addictive and unputdownable.

My Brother’s Billionaire Best Friend was quintessential Max Monroe—a fantastic blend of sweet, sexy romance and the kind of laugh-out-loud, smiling ear-to-ear humor that readers have come crave this author. A fabulously executed, light-hearted pleasure to read, I devoured this book until my cheeks ached from smiling. Five smooches from me for My Brother’s Billionaire Best Friend by Max Monroe!

Making Up by Helena Hunting Release Blitz

MAKING UP, an all-new laugh-out-loud romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting, is available now!

MU - RB banner

 

“I LOVED both Cosy and Griffin! This story was ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!”- Kendall Ryan, New York Times bestselling author

 

Making Up_ebook

Cosy Felton is great at her job—she knows just how to handle the awkwardness that comes with working at an adult toy store. So when the hottest guy she’s ever seen walks into the shop looking completely overwhelmed, she’s more than happy to turn on the charm and help him purchase all of the items on his list.

Griffin Mills is using his business trip in Las Vegas as a chance to escape the broken pieces of his life in New York City. The last thing he wants is to be put in charge of buying gag gifts for his friend’s bachelor party. Despite being totally out of his element, and mortified by the whole experience, Griffin is pleasantly surprised when he finds himself attracted to the sales girl that helped him.

As skeptical as Cosy may be of Griffin’s motivations, there’s something about him that intrigues her. But sometimes what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas and when real life gets in the way, all bets are off. Filled with hilariously awkward situations and enough sexual chemistry to power Sin City, Making Up is the next standalone in the Shacking Up world.

REVIEW:

I’ve read many of few of Lila Monroe’s romantic comedies, and I always enjoy them. She perfectly balances the heat in her stories with her wicked sense of humor and entertaining plots without heavy angst or drama resulting in light-hearted, easy-reading romances. Monroe’s writing style always manages to pull me right into the story with vivid descriptions and interesting details blended into imaginative storylines full of fun side characters. Her sexy romcoms are always an entertaining reading experience.

Cupids Anonymous is the first book in her new Cupids series. A modern-day Cyrano, the heroine, Poppy, helps communication-challenged romantics profess their love through the written word to their significant others. Anniversary poems, love letters, proposals, wedding toasts—Poppy has it covered. Dylan, a rich playboy hotel CEO, is her most active client.

Dylan and Poppy’s relationship has always been strictly professional, until one shot-filled, truth or dare inspired night culminating in a hot make-out session. With obvious chemistry now sparking between them, it makes the fact that Dylan has hired her to help him land the girl of his high-school-boyhood dreams a bit complicated. Filled with rapid-fire, witty banter and enough steam to fill a sauna, Poppy and Dylan’s relationship shifts from the professional to friends and then to something much more.

Full of humor and heat, Cupids Anonymous by Lila Monroe was an entertaining, amusing, pleasure to read, and it gets 4.5 smooches from me!

Blurb:
Indulge in four delicious tales of true love! In Dating Mr. Right, you’ll devour an online dating meets secret identity romance, a friends-to-lovers plus best friend’s brother scorcher, a story of a pair of jaded lovers bitten by the insta-love bug, and an office romance with an age difference.

Lucky Suit…

I’m breaking up with set-ups. No more “can I introduce you to my son, nephew, grandson, the butcher, the guy down the street who mows my lawn.” Machines know what’s best, and I’ll rely on the great dating algorithms of the web to find the ideal man, thank you very much.

Soon enough, it looks like I’ve found him — his nickname is Lucky Suit, and he’s hilarious, quick-witted and full of heart. But when I finally get together with him in person, I have the distinct feeling I’ve met him before.

Turns out there’s more to our meeting than I had thought, and when we discover what truly brought us together, all bets are off.

Once Upon A Red-Hot Kiss…

A man needs to stay far away from falling into bed with his best friend.

Even if she’s sexy as sin, sweet as candy, and damn near irresistible every single day.

But not only are Macy and I best friends, we’re also complete opposites. She’s perky, upbeat, outgoing and I’m . . . how shall we say . . . a little bit broody.

Then, she reveals something to me that just might lead me to revise all my rules on friends in bed…

Too Good To Be True…

To say I’m wary of love would be an epic understatement. Keep that four-letter word far away from me.

But then a matchmaker friend insists she can pair me with the perfect man for me.

Even when sparks fly and chemistry crackles from the first date, I refuse to believe this kind of insta-connection can be the real thing.

Even though for the first time it feels like it could be.

Or is it just too good to be true?

Strong Suit (a short story)…

From the day I meet Ginny in the conference room, I’m smitten with the co-worker who’s ten years my senior. And I’m going to pull out all the stops to win her over.

REVIEW:

Any chance for me to dive back into one of Lauren Blakely’s worlds is a chance I’m going to take. I’ve read the overwhelming majority of her romantic comedies and contemporary romances, and there’s always a side character or two that I wish I could see get their happily ever after. Blakely gives readers that opportunity in this collection.

Lucky Suit takes readers back to the Birthday Suit world with Cameron, the best friend/business partner of that book’s heroine, Lulu, as he meets the woman of his dreams. It was fun, it was sexy and full of quirky humor as Kristen, a smart and sweet nerdy girl, gets the hottest guy to ever land in her galaxy. Once Upon a Red-Hot Kiss returns readers to The Heartbreakers series, a personal favorite of mine, with a best-friends-to-lovers Valentine-themed romance that was short, sweet and full of red-hot heat. Too Good To Be True brings together the Come As You Are and Satisfaction Guaranteed worlds with two characters who’ve been burned by love taking a chance on it again. I cheered Olivia and Herb on the whole way in this heartwarming, heart-mending, pinch-me-is-this-real romance as their luck turns, and they find out that sometimes things aren’t too good to be true, they’re just simply true. Finally, the short story in this collection, Strong Suit, picks up the breadcrumbs that Blakely laid in Birthday Suit with an older woman, younger man age-gap/workplace romance. Noah was persistent, determined, and patient as he worked his swoony magic to win over Ginny—something I’d been wanting to happen the whole time I was reading Birthday Suit!

Each of these novellas can technically be read as a standalone, so for new-to-Lauren Blakely readers, the Dating Mr. Right collection is a wonderful opportunity to get a taste of the worlds that she’s created in these stories’ full-length counterparts. The short story, Strong Suit, is just that—a short story, tying up a romance that was just beginning to spark in Birthday Suit, and it’s the only story in this collection where I’d encourage readers to read that book before diving into this short story.

Nicely developed, fast-paced quick reads, full of all the sexy, fun and sigh-worthy romance I’ve come to love from Lauren Blakely, Dating Mr. Right was a chance to catch up with characters I loved and see them get their own happily ever afters. For new readers, it’s a chance to check out some of Blakely’s worlds with a couple of satisfying, sexy and sweet little love stories. Entertaining and amusing, the entire Dating Mr. Right collection of stories was romantic, very sexy and a whole lot of fun to read. Dating Mr. Right by Lauren Blakely gets 5 smooches from me!

I know it’s time to move on from my rocky past and get back out there and start dating again.

It’s just that every time I think about it, I get all nervous and sweaty.

Good thing I have a secret weapon to help me—my best friend, professional hockey stud Owen Parrish.

He’s the king of hookups, and promises he’ll be my guide through the world of online dating. With his help, I know this won’t be as hard.

• • •

I’ve never been this hard in my entire life.

My friend Becca wants my help hooking her up with some douchey guy from a dating app.

I said I’d help her—but now I’m noticing all kinds of things I can’t ignore, like how pretty she is behind those baggy clothes and messy buns.

I want to be the one to help her, to show her the ropes in the bedroom, and it turns out, Becca’s game to let me take a more hands-on approach.

But what happens when she’s ready to take her newfound confidence and move on? I’ve never been boyfriend material, but for her, I want to try.

Your favorite hot jocks are back with an all new standalone novel. If you like sexy, confident men who know how to handle a stick (on and off the ice), and smart women who are strong enough to keep all those big egos in check, this series is for you!
