Title: Chance
Author: Allie York
Release Date: 11/15/2022
Publisher: Self-Published
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Series: The Broadway Series, Book 1

Synopsis: 

Jovie

Between running a successful business and attempting to pen a best-selling novel, I don’t have the time or energy for the kind or romance I love to write about.

So, I let it fall to the wayside.

The thing is, life has a funny way of delivering what you need when you least expect it. And trust me, I was not expecting a poodle to be the one delivering a sexy Brit into my world.

Ewan

A tragic accident left me with time for only one woman in my life – my little sister, Amelia. Raising a teenager is enough work without adding in the hassle that comes with relationships.

But when my disobedient dog, Clark, crashes into a sexy dog trainer and practically bows at her feet, the attraction is immediate.

The chemistry between us is hard to fight and Jovie fits comfortably in my life with Amelia.

It’s all or nothing when someone else decides they want to change the game. Someone deadly, who has their sights set on what’s mine.

Romance Book Review: Too Complicated by Ajme Williams

ABOUT:

I’m in love with the man that was hired to keep tabs on me.
Turns out, I’m the one keeping tabs now because he’s my neighbor

…and he’s hot!

I was still able to think straight until I found out Noel had a son.
All my common sense went out the window when I watched him care for the kid.
The kid that his psycho ex just left at his door.

Yes, the last thing Noel wanted was another relationship.
And the last thing I wanted was heartbreak.

So I made a deal with myself that I knew I wouldn’t be able to keep.
Three words were all I needed to remember: No strings attached.
I was prepared for everything except… the two pink lines on a stick.

Noel was about to be a father again.
Was the hot single billionaire ready for another shock of his life?

Small Town Romance Book Review!! ~ Caught Up with the Captain by Kait Nolan

ABOUT:

Can a retired naval commander and the love he left behind overcome a 34-year-old secret to find their way to a second chance?

Captain Mitchell Greyson is a man who believes in duty. A bigger purpose and a thirst to prove himself took him away from his tiny Tennessee hometown–and the girl he loved–more than thirty years ago. After a distinguished career in the Navy, Grey’s headed home, searching for new purpose and a glimpse at the road not traveled.

At the tender age of eighteen, Rebecca Ferguson made a choice that changed her life. Since then, she’s had joy, regrets, and an ugly divorce, but she never forgot the love who walked away. She definitely never expected him to move back to town more than thirty years later, or for all the sparks to still be alive.

One look and Grey’s all in, determined to earn a second chance at the love he left behind. The duty that took him away is over, but Rebecca doesn’t know how to trust that he’s home to stay, especially when the secret she’s held onto all these years is closer than he thinks…and it has the potential to destroy their fragile new beginning.

Jaime

Who says you can’t go home?

Coming back to Abbott Ridge and starting over was my plan. But, just like everything in life, plans change.

Now I’m stuck without a job and forced to rethink how I’ll start my own company.

Insert, Wade Dempsey.

Owner of Dempsey’s bar, and one of my closest friends from college. He immediately offers me a temporary job working with him, like old times.

It’s an offer I can’t refuse. Oh, and did I mention that my new boss is even sexier than I remember?

Things between us are going great…until a call from New York presents me with a new offer that has me second guessing my stay in Abbott Ridge.

Wade

Home is where the heart is.

I’ve spent my whole life in Abbott Ridge, running in and out of my family’s bar until I was finally old enough to take over. Now I’m in charge, but it’s a struggle to keep the place from going under. I need fresh ideas to compete with all the fancy bars and clubs popping up downtown.

Insert, Jaime Harlow.

The Hometown Dilemma is a standalone, return to hometown romance that is part of the multi-author series, Meet Cute Book Club. Escape with this swoon-worthy collection of romances where meet-cutes don’t only happen between the pages of romance novels and members find their own happily ever afters.

I want the family life, and I want it with Amaya.

Romance New Release & Book Review ~ Without A Hitch by Avery Maxwell

Title: Without a Hitch
Author: Avery Maxwell
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: July 27, 2022
Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/61410870-without-a-hitch
Tagline: Never fall for the bridesmaid. 

Blurb: 

“A wedding is the beginning of the end.” —Lochlan Blaine

Look, I’ve seen firsthand what marriage does to a man. I’m not interested. You want to take the leap? Fine. But have the decency to elope. Leave me out of it.

And then I see her. The happily-ever-after-loving bridesmaid at the wedding I couldn’t get out of.

This flower-wielding bombshell is all wrong for me. But one night together is enough to convince me that she could be the answer to my problem. All I need is three weeks with her…

“Weddings are magic.” —Tilly Camden

I love love. And weddings. That’s how I land the best job in the world: professional bridesmaid. Brides hire me to make sure their big day goes off without a hitch…usually while dressed in taffeta.

I can’t wait until I find the one. The cranky, three-piece-suit-wearing Adonis who smirks at the idea of happily ever after is definitely not him. Lochlan Blaine has “heartbreaker” written all over him.

I should know better. But when a panty-melting one-night stand turns into an offer I can’t refuse, what’s a bridesmaid to do? It’s only three weeks. It’s just business.

I can’t possibly get my heart broken. Can I?

Teasers:

I absolutely LOVED Loch & Tilly together and I kind of loved them on their own as well. He’s a grumpy AF billionaire who has no use for love and Tilly is all about the love, so much so that she wants her own wedding planning business and stumbles into a genius side hustle as a Bridesmaid wrangler!

The moment they meet, sparks fly. They are both a different, more relaxed and confident version of themselves which was all kinds of awesome. Even though they had an end date, everything about their time together was fun and sexy.

Loch brings out the sexy and sassy version of Tilly who often lets herself fade into the background, making others comfortable and happy first and foremost. And she well, let’s just say you’ll love the baby trackies part of the story!

Let’s not forget the supporting cast because they were colorful and awesome and only served to enhance the fun time I had reading Without A Hitch. Such a wonderfully fun romantic comedy with an incredibly satisfying ending.

Author Bio: 

An American Romance Author, Avery loves wine, sexy stories, pizza, and her family.

Avery is a hot mess of a mom to four wildly sweet mini-humans and two fur babies. She spends far too much time in her pj’s and trips over herself multiple times a day. Accident-prone is probably a fair assessment.

Having grown up in small-town Vermont, Avery often jokes about being the most naïve person in the room. Luckily, she’s used that small-town charm to write character-driven contemporary romances that have you laughing one minute, and crying the next.

When she isn’t refereeing (three little boys require a lot of whistle blowing), or cuddled up with her real-life Prince Charming, you can find her tucked away with a bottle of wine (because those steamy scenes don’t write themselves!), or coaching her daughter’s basketball team.

Avery now lives in North Carolina where she brings life, love, and a happily ever after to every character she writes.
