Stevie

There’s nothing more liberating than picking up your life and relocating. I needed a fresh start, desperately looking to get away from my past. Stewart Grove is such a cute small town and seems like the perfect place to settle. Add in the fact I got a job serving at the popular Burgers and Brew restaurant, and everything seems to be clicking into place.

Then single dad Jack Harper sat down at one of my tables and turned my world upside down.

I wasn’t expecting to meet a man so quickly after moving, let alone one ten years my senior, but there’s no denying the instant connection. The problem is, I carry a secret. One that could destroy this new life I’m creating.

I just pray it all doesn’t blow up in my face.

Jack

Weekends are spent with my kids. As a local electrician and business owner, I don’t exactly work your typical nine-to-five job. Add in co-parenting with my ex-wife, and there isn’t a lot of free time for myself. Dates have always been an afterthought, especially when the few I’ve been on didn’t go well. I’m content with just being Dad, making sure my kids always come first.

Then I met her.

Stevie Clement is completely unexpected in the best sort of way, and I find myself drawn to her like I’ve never experienced. I want all of her time, in my life and in my bed.

However, it may come down to an impossible decision: my kids or the woman I want to spend my life with.

REVIEW:

Jodi Ellen Malpas concludes the re-telling of the This Man series from Jesse Ward’s point-of-view with the third book in the trilogy, This Woman Forever. An addictive combination of passion, emotion and intrigue, Malpas’ engaging style of storytelling is perfectly suited for telling these kinds of complex and complicated love stories like the one between enigmatic billionaire, Jesse Ward, and the woman who stole his heart, Ava O’Shea.

Intensely sexy and profoundly emotional, Jesse and Ava’s romance is an epic one. If you’ve read the original This Man series, which was told from Ava’s perspective, you may think you know all you need to know about this couple. I’m here to tell you that you don’t—this trip to The Manor is an entirely different experience. The couple’s connection is just as electric, their story is just as riveting and the authentic portrayal of their emotional struggles made for a truly unputdownable reading experience. Five smooches from me for This Woman Forever by Jodi Ellen Malpas!

RELEASE BLITZ WITH EXCERPT: Well and Truly Pucked by Lauren Blakely

WELL AND TRULY PUCKED, a new rivals-to-lovers, forced proximity, why-choose hockey romance from #1 New York Times Bestselling Author, Lauren Blakely, is available now!

I swear I only asked one hot hockey-playing friend to give me romance lessons for the week, but three hockey stars volunteered…

The post breakup plan was simple – escape from my toxic ex to a vacation rental and stay far away from men.

But thanks to a booking snafu I’m accidentally sharing it with three hot hockey players. One’s flirty, one’s broody, one’s a cheeky Brit, and they’re all the most attentive men I’ve ever met.

After a couple of glasses of champagne, I’m telling them about the contest my ex is running on his dating advice web site. The topic? What makes a great boyfriend, and I want to submit a column.

All three offer to show me every single thing I’ve been missing in and out of bed.

We make a deal for one week only. It’s only for revenge, of course. I work for the other hockey team in the city so it’d be a big mistake to truly get involved with a rival, let alone three.

Even though I melt under their touch. They show me what it means to be adored, cherished and romanced.

But as the week ticks on, what started as revenge fast turns into me giving my heart to three men I can’t have. Looks like I’m well and truly pucked.

EXCERPT:

 

I shudder.

Have I ever been kissed on my wrist before? I don’t think so, and I don’t ever want him to stop.

“Gavin, help him out. Kiss the back of her arm,” Rhys instructs nonchalantly. Gavin plants a kiss on the underside of my elbow.

They kiss me more, treasure hunters discovering all the places on my body till I’m gasping, shivering.

Then, Hollis steps back and runs a hand down his tie, his blue eyes locked with mine. “Take it off me, Briar,” he commands.

With eager fingers I undo the knot. Tug off the tie. Hand it to him.

“Gavin, worship our girl a little,” Rhys says. “Maybe kiss her ankles. See if she likes that.”

I look to Rhys, a heated charge zinging between the Englishman and me, all while Gavin drops to his knees, then wraps a big hand around my calf.

He kisses me, and I whimper.

But there’s no time to linger in the new sensations of ankle kisses since Hollis crowds me, draping the tie around my neck. The silk slides against my skin. “You’re going to look so f*&king pretty wearing my tie.”

REVIEW:

A Lauren Blakely audiobook is always something special, but a fully casted Lauren Blakely audiobook is an experience. Well and Truly Pucked, the final book in Blakely’s My Hockey Romance series, is an immersive and utterly addictive reading event that showcases the author’s unparalleled storytelling skills. Blakely expertly weaves a tale of passion, humor, and heart in this rivals-to-lovers, forced proximity, reverse harem/why choose style hockey romance. Samantha Brentmoor, Jason Clarke, Connor Crais and Teddy Hamilton’s individual and group performances were wonderful. Their portrayals of the sensual yoga instructor heroine and the three chivalrous, hockey-player heroes, their witty banter and off-the-charts chemistry came through my Air Pods loud and clear, drawing me right into their steamy encounters and heartwarming moments.

Blakely skillfully delves into the emotional complexities of a why choose/reverse harem style relationship, exploring the challenges and joys of navigating a love story with multiple partners. I followed along as Briar and the boys transitioned from friendship to something more, laughing, swooning and rooting for this unconventional quartet to find their happily ever after. With its captivating storytelling, brilliant narration and unforgettable characters, the audiobook version of Well and Truly Pucked is a must-listen for fans of steamy romance and why choose dynamics. Five smooches from me for Lauren Blakely’s Well and Truly Pucked!

He’s a billionaire in need of a wife …

And I’m his ex who can’t say no to him.

Ten years ago Carson Knight was my one great love, but he abandoned me without a trace.

Now he’s a billionaire single-dad in need of a temporary wife.

And he’s at my house on one knee with a proposal …

Marry him, so he’s more likely to win full custody of his daughter, keeping her safe from her unstable mother. In return, he’ll take care of the medical expenses for a surgery my father needs to survive.

Reluctantly, I agree to tie the knot, on one condition. Once those custody papers are signed, we go our separate ways. Because he’s even more gorgeous, charming, and sweeter than he was back then, and I don’t trust myself not to fall for my fake husband.

Especially when I hear him say “my wife.”

Or feel his hands on my skin. Taste his kiss or see the way he looks at me with those blue eyes and know that our carefully crafted rules will shatter.

Right alongside my heart.

Sometimes the wedding of the century calls for desperate measures…

 

 

Sometimes the wedding of the century calls for desperate measures.

And sometimes those desperate measures are to pretend the person you hate most is actually your boyfriend.

After years of working her tail off at her event-planning business, Maggie Mitchell is ready for a vacation. With nothing on her mind but R & R, she’s enjoying the warm weather of Bora Bora when in saunters Brody McFadden, her brother’s best friend and also her sworn enemy. Thanks to years of tension between the two―kicked off by a make-out session at her brother’s wedding that ended horribly―Maggie has sworn to stay away from the man. That is, until she finds out he’s in Bora Bora for his boss’s daughter’s wedding, hoping to use the trip to win a real future at the company.

Maggie promised herself she wouldn’t even think of work on the island, but as word spreads about the “wedding of the century” taking place in the midst of her vacation, she realizes offering her services as a bridesmaid and planner could bring her business to the next level. The only catch? She needs to pose as Brody’s girlfriend to get the job…while letting him stay in her peaceful bungalow.

Tensions rise, irritation flairs, and despite years’ worth of bickering behind closed doors, Maggie can’t quite squash the sparks building between her and her new fake boyfriend, especially when she learns the real reason their first kiss was cut short. But as the wedding day draws closer and everything starts to go wrong, it just might be Brody who sends Maggie’s business crashing down―and her heart along with it.

“A quintessential Meghan Quinn romantic comedy…” ~Danielle, Red Cheeks Reads

 

Check out Danielle’s 5 SMOOCHES review!

 

 

EXCERPT:

 

“What the heck was that back there?”

She crosses her arms over her ample chest. “That was me helping you out.”

“That’s what you consider helping me out?” I ask. “You just made yourself my girlfriend in front of my boss.”

“I’m aware.”

I stare at her. “Why?”

“Uh, isn’t it obvious?”

“No,” I nearly shout.

“You know, this might not be the best place to discuss this.” She glances around. “Don’t want to start a scene.”

I place one hand on the counter behind her and lean forward so only she and I can hear. “I want to know what the heck is going on, because you just made it impossible for me to shake you this week.”

“Trust me, the last thing I want is to be attached to you. It was a tough pill to swallow.”

“Why are you even swallowing it?”

“Don’t guys like it when we swallow?” That know-it-all grin of hers crosses over her lips, the same grin that got me in trouble with her in the first place.

Let me tell you something about Maggie Mitchell. She’s a different kind of girl—oh, sorry, woman.

Unlike any woman I’ve ever met before.

She’s a combination of orderliness, confidence, and warmth. She has no problem saying what’s on her mind, barely possesses any aptitude for embarrassment—I witnessed this when she sang Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now at her brother’s rehearsal dinner. It was off-key, and sometimes she hit notes only dogs could hear. But she also has a helping heart and will go out of her way to make anyone comfortable—well, anyone besides me.

She’s unashamed.

She’s a natural conversationalist.

She has an infectious energy.

REVIEW:

Bridesmaid for Hire by Meghan Quinn was an amusing and entertaining romantic comedy that showcased the author’s exceptional storytelling skills. In this enemies-to-lovers, fake-dating rom-com, Quinn weaves a tale of unexpected love and undeniable chemistry. I listened to the audiobook, performed in duet by two of my favorite narrators, Erin Mallon and Jason Clarke, was excellent. They both delivered wonderful performances, capturing the essence of their characters and bringing them to life for the listener.

The witty banter and sizzling sexual tension between Maggie, the confident, outgoing wedding planner, and Brody, the broody and gruff hero, may have drew me in, but their hilarious mishaps and heartfelt moments kept me glued to my Air Pods as I practically inhaled this story. Quinn expertly delves into the emotional complexities of fake dating your most despised enemy as she explored the trials and tribulations of a relationship built on deception. I swooned, swore and stressed the whole situation right along with Maggie and Brody as their relationship morphed from adversarial to amorous. A quintessential Meghan Quinn romantic comedy, Bridesmaid for Hire is a not-to-be-missed, must-read for lovers of the enemies-to-lovers and fake dating tropes. Five smooches from me for Meghan Quinn’s Bridesmaid for Hire!
