New Romance Book Review!! ~ Accidentally Famous by Marissa Clarke

ABOUT:

Jack Winston may be Hollywood’s biggest action hero, but he’s seriously burned out. He can’t even save himself from his PR team’s latest scheme: dating a starlet. But when his assistant accidentally tags Cassidy James from Blink, Maine (wherever that is) on social media, the paparazzi decide that she’s Jack’s latest fling. Now Jack needs to do some serious damage control…starting with the adorable home reno pro in paint-splattered overalls.

Cassidy is not prepared when the Jack Winston shows up in her quiet little town—and whew, he is that gorgeous in person. Before she can pick her jaw up off the floor, his PR team is bombarding them with a whole new plan involving “fake girlfriend,” “optics,” and “sign this NDA” (whatever that is). But no one warned her that Mr. A-List Action Star is hot, funny as all get out, and loves old houses as much as she does.

Now they have two weeks to convince everyone they’re in a fake relationship—two weeks that will drive Cassidy’s reno business through the roof and help Jack reclaim his “spark.” The plan is going fine, dare she say, perfectly…until she discovers something that will change everything.

Each book in the Hideaway Harbor series is STANDALONE:
* Accidentally Perfect
* Accidentally Famous

Book Review!! ~ Happy Stinkin’ New Year (Hella Holidays) by Oona Ryda & Candace Ayers

ABOUT:

An obsessively overthinking geeky gamer chick…

It all starts when I crash a Halloween party to save my naive, gullible sister from the clutches of Manhattan’s biggest billionaire playboy, Hunter Ellington.

I don’t find my sister, but I do find myself playing tonsil hockey with a hot Zorro in a dark closet.

Hey, he isn’t the typical hoity-toity trust fund snob.

He’s funny, charming, surprisingly witty, and I like him. Until he answers an urgent call, promises to return, and completely ghosts me.

Of course he does because, as I soon learn, my hot Zorro and Manhattan’s biggest player are one in the same.

A couple weeks later, when an opportunity for revenge falls in my lap, I take it. I’m petty that way.

A fun-loving, smoking-hot billionaire playboy…

I never meant to ghost her. If she’d have waited just a little longer…

Now here she is, standing in my office.

Rose Buchanan is the liaison to the brilliant developer of what, if placed in the right hands, will be the next social media app to take the word by storm—those hands happen to be mine.

Unfortunately, she’s out for blood—also mine.

I really want to get my hands on that app.

I really want to get my hands on Rose Buchanan.

To do either, I need to prove that there’s more to me than my reputation suggests.

Game on.

Romance Book Review!! ~ Untying the Knot by Meghan Quinn

ABOUT:

Ryot Bisley is my husband.

Yes, the former third baseman for the Chicago Bobbies and absolute heart throb of the Windy City. That Ryot Bisley.

The first time I ran into him, he was grumpy, a horrific host, and left me on his sofa with nothing but a nylon baseball flag to use as a blanket.

The second time, he reluctantly bought me dinner, stared at my chest the entire night, and still sported that permanent frown.

The third time . . . well, that was a game changer. His smile captured me, his teasing charmed me, and his touches excited me.

So when he was called up to the majors that didn’t stop us from knocking it out of the park and all the way down the aisle.

Eleven years later…I’d love to say we’re happy as ever but the man who sent me dirty text messages every day is long gone and Mr. Frowny Face is back.

He’s so focused on trying to build a life after baseball that he doesn’t see the life we’ve already created together. . .so I make the hard decision and serve him divorce papers.

Problem is…my husband refuses to accept those papers. Instead, he has a new game plan that makes untying the knot of our marriage a little tricky. And just when I thought I wanted to be traded . . . he’s slowly, tantalizingly roping me back in.

Romance Book Review! ~ The Sweetheart Fix by Miranda Liasson

ABOUT:

Juliet Montgomery absolutely loves her small town of Blossom Glen, Indiana, and everyone loves her. Except for the fact that she’s a couples counselor who suffered a very public breakup that no one can forget. And now her boss asks her to take a step back…which is exactly when the town’s good-lookin’ and unusually gruff mayor offers her an unexpected job.

Jack Monroe absolutely loves being the mayor of his small town. Except when he actually has to talk to people. Can’t he just fix the community problems in peace? Like right now, he’s mediating the silliest dispute two neighbors could possibly have. When the town sweetheart steps up and solves everyone’s problems in five minutes flat, Jack realizes what this town really needs…is a therapist.

Juliet is able to soothe anyone—other than the surly mayor, it seems. But there’s a reason they say opposites attract, because all of their verbal sparring leads to some serious attraction. Only, just like with fireworks, the view might appear beautiful—but she’s already had one public explosion that’s nearly ruined everything…how can she risk her heart again?



Each book in the Blossom Glen series is STANDALONE:
* The Sweetheart Deal
* The Sweetheart Fix

I really had a wonderful time with Juliet and Jack. They were a fun enemies to lovers romance with a very significant slow burn that worked well since they each had their own reasons for avoiding relationships.

He’s the no nonsense mayor and she’s the town sweetheart, and they are all kinds of tangled up together thanks to her sister and his best friend so avoiding one another is pretty difficult, but somehow they managed. Me thinks they managed a little too much?

Anyway the moment Jack and Juliet are on the page together you can feel the sparks. She is sassy and sweet and has her own issues to battle, same as Jack. But the attraction cannot be denied, no matter how hard they try. The way they complement each other but can’t see it yet was such a good twist and it was really made the romance ring true.

Like I said, I had a good time reading this story. I liked The Sweetheart Deal but The Sweetheart Fix was like a fun rom-com movie it was so engaging. There were plenty of fun side characters, most especially Jack’s pint-sized grandmother and all of Juliet’s whacky family.

Definitely a 5 star read for me!

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.

NEW RELEASE & ROMANCE REVIEW!! ~  The Redo by Max Monroe

Title: The Redo

The Redo by Max Monroe

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/60808973-the-redo
Bookbub: https://www.bookbub.com/books/the-redo-by-max-monroe

Blurb:

Put a finger down if you’ve ever been a single woman who got stuck in a New York City elevator in the middle of a summer blackout with your former high school sweetheart—whom you haven’t seen in years—while pregnant with a baby that isn’t biologically yours. And you can’t believe how handsome that blast from your past is, so you unwittingly flirt with him a little even though your life is so crazy complicated you’re barely keeping your head above water, but everything about him makes you think you could totally still be in love with him.

*puts a finger down*

What? Just me?

Needless to say, my current status is thorny. And no, I didn’t miss how close that word is to another one.

Even though he’s the epitome of tall, dark, and incredibly handsome, Remington Winslow has been a single bachelor for most of his life. It’s clichéd and basic—until you consider the fact that once upon a terrible time, he got left at the altar.

He doesn’t do relationships. He definitely doesn’t fall in love.

And I’m just trying to survive a tangled web of unexpected motherhood and running one of the top real estate firms in the city that never sleeps.

He’s the jaded guy who doesn’t want to settle down, and I’m the career-focused woman with more baggage than a 747 can hold.

We’re just two friends who used to be in love.

Now, if someone would tell my hormones I’m not a teenager anymore, I’d be set.

This book sucked me in right from the start. I’m a skeptic like Remy but I loved that he treated Cleo with respect and even if he didn’t realize it, their friendship kept him open for love when it finally came.

I don’t want to give away too much about this wonderful story but Maria is a badass. Running into Remy for the first time in ages and getting stuck in an elevator? While pregnant? I’m surprised the poor woman didn’t keel over from absolute humiliation. There was something about Maria that was just fun and endearing and it made me root for her from the very start.

Remy’s growth over the course of the story was heartwarming and I really loved his relationship with his siblings. They were a fun, rambunctious bunch and I loved every moment of this story from beginning to end.

I really wish I’d been aware of this series from the first book because it seems like a fun ride and now I guess I’ll go backwards since I know how it all turns out!

NEW RELEASE!!! ~ Let It Be Love (A Mustang Prairie Romance)

I am pleased as punch to let you all know that Let It Be Love is LIVE and available on Amazon, Kobo & Google!

This is the story of Mayor Eric Polaha and world famous Pop Starlet Kiki Ramirez!

Mustang Prairie Romance – Let It Be Love

About

💖❤Welcome to Mustang Prairie💖❤

Eric

Falling in love with a pop starlet has its drawbacks
Lack of privacy, for one
Gossip, for another
But falling in love with Kiki Ramirez was the best thing I’ve ever done
And the stupidest
One story planted by her agent and now I look like a fool
Played by the starlet
Looking like a simp for the world to see
But none of its true and I can’t defend my woman how I want
The urge to fight for her, to defend her is too strong
Even against the Hollywood machine working hard to keep us apart

Kiki

Falling in love with a civilian wasn’t part of the plan
I didn’t believe in love
Not for me and not for my life
But a small town mayor was the man who’d torn down my walls
Snuck past my defenses
And now with our future hanging in the balance its up to me to find a way to make it all work
A crazy agent
A ravenous paparazzi
And a pregnant belly I’m powerless to hide
I want Eric and the life I see for us
But how can I invite this madness into his quiet, small town life?
