NEW RELEASE & REVIEW!!! ~ Boss I Love to Hate by Mia Kayla

Title: Boss, I Love To Hate
Author: Mia Kayla
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 25, 2019

 

Dear Mr. Brisken,
 
How do I hate you?
Let me count the ways.
 
I hate your smug, sexy millionaire face.
 I hate your cocky, skirt chasing, playboy ways.
 I hate working as your secretary—but, I love the pay. It almost makes dealing with you worth it.
 
I hate how my friends call you a BILF, when really BILK (Boss I’d like to kill) is more appropriate.
 
I hate that I need you to be my date for my best friend’s wedding because my ex-boyfriend, the King of Heartbreakers, and his new busty blonde girlfriend will be in attendance.
 
But mostly, I hate how once the charade is over, I might not hate you at all…it was so much easier when you were the Boss I Love To Hate

About Two For Holding

Savannah
I didn’t think I was missing anything. I had my son, a great career, and a home that I’d made for both of us. One puck over the glass at a hockey game made me realize I wanted more. The larger-than-life hockey player inserted himself into our world and I never wanted to let him go.

The thing is, I don’t know if I’m strong enough to keep him.

Porter
My home was on the ice, with a stick in my hand and a puck on my tape. It took one little boy with a toothless smile and his spitfire mother to change all that. I wanted them to be my home and I was willing to take all the penalties necessary to make it happen.

Now I just have to convince her that we can handle it all together.

Melding three lives into one isn’t as easy as it seems, especially with the traveling, the media, and the insecurities. Savannah and Porter have to decide whether to use the breakaway to head to the goal or take a seat on the bench.

After all, 425 Madison Avenue is the perfect place to fall in love.

BOOK REVIEW!!! ~ The Road Leads Back (Stonehill Series Book 1) by Marci Bolden

ABOUT:

Sometimes the only place left to go is home.

Kara Martinson always thought her high school crush was out of her league, but they did share one night she’s never been able to forget. Nearly three decades after being disowned by her parents and forced to raise her son on her own, Kara’s made it—her art is being toasted at a gallery opening. Even better, she and her son are finally on stable ground. Until Mr. One-Night Stand himself crashes her party.

Harry Canton always knew Kara would make it as an artist. Almost thirty years after high school, he still considers her the one that got away. But the surprise reunion doesn’t quite go to plan when Harry discovers he left her with more than just memories when he went away to college. Desperate to connect with the family he never knew existed, Harry convinces his son to move cross country for a fresh start with his father—and pleads with Kara to come home, too.

Kara hasn’t stepped foot in their hometown since the day she was sent away. But her son desperately wants the father he never had and denying him that may cost her everything. Can love heal old heartaches so Harry and Kara can have a second chance at the future they were robbed of so long ago? Or will the pain of the past be too much to face?

 

I love a second chance romance and this one, with a twist, was a good read. Harry and Kara are really great characters with flaws and fears and they just felt so REAL. At times they both annoyed me and then turned around to do things that endeared them both to me. Between the hurt and anger and the big bad past looming right behind them, this was a happy ending well worth the journey!

There were a few minutes where I thought I might not be able to get into The Road Leads Back because of Phil. I know he went through a lot but he was a parent and old enough to cut his mom a little slack. I appreciated how much he grew throughout the story and I’m kind of hoping that he’ll get his own story sometime soon.

But Harry and Kara…I LOVED them! She was fun and sweet with her boho style and ability to make the most out of an unexpected life. She hung on to her anger and to me, it felt justified, which only frustrated me when everyone else made it seem like she was overreacting. She wasn’t. I found Kara to be a highly sympathetic heroine who was strong and capable, even more than she realized.

I believe this is my first book my Marci Bolden but so far, I’m a fan!
