Growing up, Ramsey Stewart branded my soul in ways time could never heal.

At twelve, he asked me to be his girlfriend.

At thirteen, he gave me my first kiss.

By sixteen, we’d fallen in love, planned a future together, and had our eyes set on the horizon.

Love never fails, right?

But for Ramsey, it did.

Love failed him.

I failed him.

The entire world failed him.

At seventeen, Ramsey was convicted of killing the boy who assaulted me.

Move on, he wrote in his first and only letter from prison.

Start a new life, he urged.

I don’t love you anymore, he lied.

There was no such thing as giving up on Ramsey. Love may have been our curse, but he was mine—then, now, and forever.

 

So here I am, twelve long years later, waiting for a man I don’t even know to emerge from between the chain link gates.

Copy of BestMan_Amazon.jpg

When the wedding of your dreams is just around the corner, everything needs to go as planned. Only problem is, the groom didn’t get the memo.

Aaron forgot the rings, and Lia is determined to make the long drive home to get them in time for their “I do’s.”

But there’s a catch. There always is with Aaron, isn’t there?

Aaron is too hungover to come, and sends a replacement.

The best man.

Miles Foster. The cocky, arrogant, sexy best man…and the last person Lia wants to be trapped in a car with for hours.

But Aaron insists, and Lia wonders if there’s another reason Aaron wants Miles tagging along–aside from sticking her with a hot, surly babysitter.

Yet how bad can it be? It’ll be over before she knows it, and she’ll never see him again. Just like in college.

But when secrets are revealed, and Lia’s whole world is turned upside down, she realizes she’s been living a lie–and so has her groom.

Miles is supposed to be the best man at her wedding.

But what if he is simply the best man she has ever known? The best man for her?

Title: HUMBUGGED
Authors: PIPPA GRANT & LILI VALENTE

He’s the world’s most alpha Marine and the last man I should be letting jingle my bells this holiday season.

Someone must have spiked my eggnog.

I don’t do Marines.

REVIEW:

I’ve read all the books in the Happy Cat series by Lili Valente and Pippa Grant, and I have thoroughly enjoyed each one. These two authors are fantastic together! Their writing styles blend smoothly, transitioning seamlessly between the two authors and coming together into a perfectly cohesive story. This story flowed so consistently, I honestly couldn’t tell who was writing what, which is exactly what I want in a collaborative effort. They clearly have compatible senses of humor, because the stuff they’ve come up with in this series have been fresh, fun and seriously funny.

Humbugged, the fourth book in the Happy Cat series, was just as charming as the other books in the series. A romantic comedy set in the wacky Southern small town of Happy Cat, and it stars the town’s resident Marine and all-around-good-guy, Clint, as the hero, and the klutzy cupcake-baking town newcomer, Noelle, as the heroine. A friends-to-lovers romance, Clint and Noelle turn the heat up this holiday season with by adding some spicy benefits to their friendship. Noelle has been burned by love, so she’s got some very distinct ideas about what she wants in a man, and she’s so sure that Clint isn’t that guy. Clint is Happy Cat’s version of Chuck Norris, well, at least according to the memes, and he lives up to every single one of them. Always there to lend a hand, he is who the townspeople call when anything is going down, something that seems to be happening a bit more frequently to Noelle. There was plenty of action in this story, along with a good bit of seasonal suspense. Of course this series wouldn’t be complete without the town’s furry and feathered friends—Nutquacker, the world’s fastest and loudest goose; Chewbaca, the llama; and George Cooney and his family of trash pandas—popping up at the worst possible moments.

Humbugged had an almost slap-stick-like quality to the comedic portion of the plot, and I was audibly laughing and grinning the whole way through it. Full of endearing side characters, a hilariously entertaining plot with a bit of a suspenseful spin to it, and a sweet, steamy romance, this amusing romantic comedy kept me happily tapping my Kindle. Humbugged by Pippa Grant and Lili Valente gets 4.5 smooches from me!

Asking for a Friend by Lauren Blakely Excerpt Reveal

ASKING FOR A FRIEND, the next sexy standalone romantic comedy in the Boyfriend Material series from #1 New York Times Bestselling Author, Lauren Blakely, is releasing December 16th, and I’ve got an exclusive excerpt to share with you today! 

 

ASKING FOR A FRIEND by Lauren Blakley
Release Date: December 16th

 

I was only trying to help a friend. I swear. I was legit asking for a friend who was finally ready to date again.

I knew what she wanted in a man — smart, funny, ambitious, well-read (no, the sports section doesn’t count), and plays a wicked game of badminton.

So I did what any good friend would do. Posted it for her. It seemed like a good idea at the time — I’d weed through the candidates, and bring her my top picks.

But then he responded.

Is it wrong to date the guy I screened for my bestie? Not asking for a friend.

EXCERPT:

Betty Boop: I’m not offended. I feel like if you were trying to pick up a woman for BDSM play, you’d be on a different app.

Dax Powers: Whew. Thank you. Which also reminds me that I need to switch over to my Paddle Me Please app and keep up the convo there with Ms. Bend Me Over the Chair.

Betty Boop: No worries. I’ll be on Spank Me Tonight, so I guess we’ll miss each other.

Dax Powers: Good luck. I hear all the pongers hang out on Spank Me Tonight.

Betty Boop: Oh damn, you are good!

Dax Powers: Thank you. I am indeed quite good. *inserts devil emoticon*

Betty Boop: And a little cocky too?

Dax Powers: Just a little. But you know what it’s like when you’re champion of a nerd sport, Miss Badminton Champion.

Betty Boop: Hey, you’re assuming I’m a nerd.

Dax Powers: Am I wrong, Miss Badminton Champion? *smirks*

I gulp, nearly dropping my phone in the drain as I cross the street. Shitballs on fire. How do I reply to this? I glance around as if I can locate the answer on the sidewalk.

Am I Peyton? Or me? Do I remind him I’m asking for a friend? It was in the profile though. The description closed with “asking for a friend,” for Pete’s sake.

It must be obvious.

Okay, fine, maybe he thinks I meant it to be tongue-in-cheek.

Someone could certainly read it as tongue-in-cheek.

Because the entire saying is tongue-in-cheek, and no one is ever asking for a friend—they’re asking for themselves.

Ugh.

So I was only honest on a technicality.

My stomach swoops, and a teeny bit of guilt weaves through me.

Who am I kidding? This is a massive, crushing tsunami of guilt.

Ping-Pong Lover Mad Flosser Dax Powers is a darling. Chatting with him is better than drinking a vanilla latte.

And I can’t lie. I won’t lie to this potential suitor.

As I walk along the park, making my way toward Little Friends, I return to the chat, drawing a deep breath.

Sex and Other Shiny Objects by Lauren Blakely Cover Reveal

 

SEX AND OTHER SHINY OBJECTS by Lauren Blakely
Release Date: January 15th
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Designer: Helen Williams

 

 

The second the test-the-sexy-scenes offer landed in my lap, I said yes.

After all, I’ve been damn curious about a few things I’ve read in romance novels. Do buttons truly go flying across the floor when you rip off a guy’s shirt? Is staircase sex hella hot or does it leave you with a big old bruise mark on your back? And don’t even get me started on all that panty shredding, and whether it even works.

Time to find out as I embark on Project Sexy Scenes Research, at the request of my hotshot book editor bestie.

All I need is a willing scene partner. Enter Tristan, my best guy friend. The witty, tell-it-like-it-is, bearded hottie volunteers for the experiment.

He’s also the guy who gave me the most devastating, toe-curling kiss of my life ten years ago. But nothing has happened since then.
And nothing will come between my panties and our friendship now since we have a plan to keep it PG.
But once the buttons start flying, all bets are off…

EXCERPT:

**JASON**

It isn’t in my nature to cry over burnt ham, but here I am, tearing up like a jackass, because the meal I’ve been reluctantly slaving over for the past four hours is two shades away from charred dust.

I had it all planned out. The timing was right, the recipes perfected, the table decorated with impeccably folded napkins that impersonated angelic swans, and polished silver that I scrubbed for an hour until I could see my balls in the reflection. Nothing says polished silverware like a spoon that gives you a clear upside-down view of your gonads.

But even with countless hours of preparing this feast, naked as the day I was born with only an apron to cover my man-loins, I still ended up with a scorched ham doused in fire extinguisher agent because somehow, the damn thing caught on fire.

Imagine this, a grown-ass man—no, not just a grown-ass man, but a man at the fresh age of twenty-eight, built like a linebacker with buttocks you can bounce rocks off . . . thanks to squatting for a living—dancing around the kitchen on his twinkle toes, arms flailing with pink and white potholders attached to his hands, screaming like a banshee, as flames light up the Jenn-Air double oven where the brown sugar and pineapple ham resided.

Are you seeing it?

Add the imagery of said man naked, dick and balls harmoniously bouncing in panic while the apron his “girlfriend” got him that says Eat my food, Lick my dick, unravels in the fit to unleash the fire extinguisher.

That was me . . . a minute ago.

Frantic, screaming, and all in all losing any last shred of my man card I had left.

It’s why I’m currently weeping like a nitwit into the flaps of my apron, wondering where I went wrong.

If we’re going to be honest with each other—and I would like to establish honesty with you—I’ll admit, I’ve always leaned toward the sensitive side. You know, the cuddly grizzly bear. Big and intimidating but a fucking gooey butterball heart on the inside.

Tell me a love story. I’ll listen the crap out of it.

The Bachelor? Why yes, that’s one of my favorite shows.

Do I smile when sharing a candlelit dinner with myself, followed by a nice long soak in a bubble bath while Enya—the fucking goddess of all voices—plays in the background? I sure as shit do.

But if some ignorant asswipe gets in my face on the ball field, stirring up trouble, I’m the first to lay a fist across his jaw and the first to be thrown out of a game.

And I’m not even sorry about it.

People are arriving in an hour. I’m vulnerable as fuck with my bare ass resting against the cold white-oak floor of my girl’s apartment, while a lonely tear streams down my freshly shaven cheek. I have no main dish, and the apartment smells like burnt rabbit turd.

Why am I in this hopeless predicament?

Because of one person.

One single person who flipped my life upside down.

A bombshell in a suit, a ravenous sex-fiend in the sheets, a classy and sophisticated tight-ass in the boardroom. She’s a knockout who’s always on my mind. She’s the girl you do things for, that you never thought you’d ever do . . .

Like cook a fancy-as-fuck four-course meal for her and her business associates while practicing interesting conversational starters to ensure the night flows smoothly.

Back in college, I might have been referred to as the mother hen of the boys. I might have cooked at least two meals a week for the guys in the loft, and yeah, I was the ironing wizard, the one everyone turned to, to get out the most stubborn wrinkles. The title has carried on over the years, but my creativity in the kitchen has dwindled with the lack of time, my ironing is now done by my apartment keeper once a week, and the fresh flowers scattered around my place? They’re more dead now than alive.

My point—I’m not the lady of the house I used to be. But I’ve been getting back into the swing of it.

So when my girl asked me to perform the impossible feat of an intimate dinner for four, I should have ordered in, tossed everything in serving dishes, and called it a night.

But nooooooooo, I had to attempt to be a goddamn hero and try to cook everything myself.

And all for what?

For one girl?

No. Not just one girl. The girl who owns my balls, who has a grip so tight on them that if she asked me to bellow out my ABCs in soprano while swirling my finger around my belly button . . . I would.

Who is this girl that has brought me to the brink of boo-boo smush bear insanity and caused me to weep like a schoolgirl in the corner of the apartment?

There’s only one lady with more than enough ovaries to buckle the knees of the mighty Jason Orson.

The one and only Dorothy “Dottie” Domico.

REVIEW:

Meghan pens the most addictive and engaging love stories, and I simply can’t get enough of them. She pulls me right into her stories with plots that are full of her fantastic sense of humor about these wonderfully endearing characters and their passionate romances. These are not simple, straightforward romantic comedies, though. While they definitely have a romcom vibe, Quinn doesn’t hesitate to run her readers through the wringer with the amount emotion she builds into her stories. They’re so funny and clever, and while I know some sort of emotional roller coaster is coming, the depth of feeling I experience still takes me by surprise when it arrives. She manages to do this to me – takes me by surprise with all these feels – every single time. It’s brilliant, and I love how she does this for me with her storytelling so consistently.

The Lineup was a mashup of some of my favorite tropes. A new adult baseball romance, it was part enemies-to-lovers, part second-chance romance with a splash of secret crush, and it all came together perfectly in this couple’s story. Dottie, a powerhouse in the boardroom is laser-focused on her career and known to be somewhat ruthless professionally, which unsurprisingly sometimes spills over to her personal life. She tends to be a bit guarded and distrustful—but she’s got good reason. While she and Jason were in college at the same time and had the same group of friends, she was nursing a crush on him that kept her in the background. Jason is a unicorn—there’s simply no other way to describe this unique and special man. He was a refreshing blend of sensitive, silly, smart, sweet and selfless—all wrapped up in an irresistibly sexy package. A pro baseball player, he was recently traded and is now back in his hometown of Chicago and reunited with the rest of his college friends.

Jason and Dottie had this natural chemistry, and I loved how Jason’s ridiculousness wore down the buttoned-up, serious Dottie. But there I was, cruising toward their happily ever after, when I started to get a little anxious. Dottie had a secret, and if she didn’t spill, it was going to explode. I knew it was coming—I knew it. I mean, Meghan Quinn dishes out powerful emotions like helpings of potato salad at a backyard barbecue for crying out loud. Even though I was braced for it, I was still utterly gutted by what this couple went through. Thankfully Quinn doesn’t let her readers linger in the misery and mistakes of her characters for too long before she heals characters and readers alike.

The Lineup was a slow-burning, sweet and tender love story chock full of all the feels. All. Of. Them. Meghan Quinn masterfully delivered a story that was both charming yet emotionally devastating. I laughed, swooned, blushed and bawled my way through this book, and I loved every single second of it. Five smooches from me for The Lineup by Meghan Quinn!
