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.

Blurb: 

Never did I think a girl like Gretchen Hawthorne would be the woman of my dreams.

She is stubborn, irritating, and can piss me off at the drop of a hat. But she is also sweet and has a vulnerability about her that she doesn’t allow many to see.

She let me in for a split second, and what I found was even more than I had bargained for. Her façade is nothing more than a mask to hide her fears.

One wild night in the barn at my cousin’s house, and I’m hooked.

She’s intriguing.

She’s beautiful.

But she also has it in her head that she and I will never work.

Which is ridiculous, and I vow to prove her wrong.

I’m Colton Thomas, and I’m stubborn too, and I do not give up easily.

She better hold on tight because I’m coming for her. And I plan to break down all those walls she’s built so high around her.

Hey There Fellow Book Lovers!

In an effort to be more active on social media, get more engagements and draw more readers into the world of romance, I’m doing these teaser trailers!

Best Of My Love is one of my favorite books that I’ve written. It was a labor of love, a book that took a lot longer than it should have to write and publish, but I love it and so do readers!

ABOUT:


DRE never returned to Emerald Creek after the man she thought she would marry broke her heart. But a late night phone call from halfway around the world brought her right back to her hometown. And face to face with the man she never thought she would have to see again. Summer in Emerald Creek was everything she remembered—endless festivals, picnics in the park and time with her best friend and her favorite little tykes—and Dre is finding it hard to resist the pull of the chemistry she and Erick still have.

ERICK made the biggest mistake of his life all those years ago but the result, his adorable little girl, was the best thing that ever happened to him. He’d done the right thing, or at least he tried to but his marriage hadn’t worked despite all that it cost him. But now, Dre was back in Emerald Creek and the universe had given him a second chance this summer, to put back together what he broke.
To reclaim the only woman he’s ever truly loved.

Can one summer recall a lifetime of memories and rekindle a love that never really went away?

What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas.

Coral

When my bestie whisks me away to Vegas for a girlfriend getaway to get my mind off the business I’m trying to buy, I expect to ring in the new year, not wake up with a ring on my finger. Despite my attraction to the red-hot bearded ginger in my bed, I hop a plane home to Candy Cane Key. A one-night stand wedding can’t possibly be the start to something that will last forever… can it?

Flynn

The first time I see Coral, I know she’s the one. So when I get the chance to check an item off her visiting Vegas bucket list, I go all in. But what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas. I’ve got nothing to lose by following her home and convincing her to give us a chance for real. And maybe everything to gain.

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.

Title: Birds of Prey
Author: Yolanda Olson
Genre: Dark Taboo Romance
Release Date: June 2, 2023
Cover Design: Black Widow Designs



I don’t know this stranger that stopped to help me.

He offered me a ride because “pretty girls shouldn’t walk alone at night.”

I see how smiles at me through the mirror, hoping that I can’t see the intent in his eyes.

Evil is always easy enough to pick out.

This man is no wolf, and I’m no lamb.

Now we’re locked in a game that only one of us will walk away from.

He says that my mistake was getting into the wrong car.

His mistake is assuming that I’m helpless.

Or alone.

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 Book Review! ~ Chance (The Broadway Series) by Allie York

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.
