FOURDAYFLING3


Imagine this.
You’re ready to leave after a one-night stand, and you’re figuring out how to—shock horror—leave your number and ask him to be your fake boyfriend for your sister’s wedding this weekend.
When he wakes up.
Well, that happened to me. And over coffee and omelets, I found myself a date.
Which was how I ended up arriving at the wedding with a guy I knew nothing about.
I didn’t know his last name, or how we met, or how long we’d been dating. I didn’t know where he grew up, what he’d majored in in college, or how many siblings he had.
I sure as hell didn’t know he was Adam Winters, hotshot hockey player, and not only my father’s favorite player, but my little nephew’s freakin’ idol.
Which means I’m in trouble. Big, big trouble.
My mother is suspicious, my sister is bridezilla on crack, and my grandpa will tell anyone who’ll listen about his time in Amsterdam’s Red Light District.
Four days.
I have to keep this up for four days, and then Adam and I can return to our regular lives, where we don’t have sex whenever we’re alone, and my family aren’t interrogating him over his intentions with me.
At least, that’s the plan.
And we all know what happens to those.

My Thoughts

FOUR DAY FLING by Emma Hart is a winner of book! It’s entertaining and funny. There are loads of banter and quips galore. The characters are a quirky collection of nutty personas whose humour and exploits had me laughing from the start.

I really enjoyed Adam and Poppy’s story. Neither one night stands nor taking a stranger to a wedding as a date are new romance tropes but they provide a nice framework for this story.  The attraction between Adam and Poppy is evident and while they did not ignore the attraction between them, their story was not just about the physical. I enjoyed the times they spent getting to know one another.

A few special mentions: Poppy’s collection of snarky/funny t-shirts she wears as armour throughout are funny. Poppy’s grandfather is an absolute hoot. The entire family is a touch nutty but they are entertaining and harmless for the most part. And finally, Poppy’s friend Avery often offers sage advice in a most amusing manner.

There are several inconsistencies in the storyline but I chose to ignore those and concentrate on the lighthearted romance. I am new to Emma Hart’s writing but I will be adding her to my list of authors to read.

About the Book
The first time I met Ian Kemp in the sparkling blue waters of St. Thomas, I was six years old and we shared a summer beneath the stars.

The second time I met Ian Kemp, he was a shell of the boy I once knew. Turbulent and infuriating, he refused my friendship at every turn. Like me, he was a casualty of life’s cruelty, but we were planets apart. 

We’d both sought refuge on the island, hoping to find our anchor. Instead, we found each other and managed to reclaim our stars...until we both got swept away.



My Thoughts


"Not all love stories come with happy endings, but some do."

I have greatly enjoyed every Kate Stewart book I have read to date but SOMEONE ELSE’S OCEAN has surpassed her other books by a long way. I absolutely loved it!

Both Koti and Ian have run away to a Barbados Island to escape. Once childhood friends, they meet again after many years. Koti is slowly building her life back up after escaping the rate race. Ian is licking his wounds after an ultimate betrayal. Their attraction is fierce, but beyond that, neither is capable of giving the other what they need; they are both fearful of commitment, but they’re unable to stop this wave whose force sees them tumbling together and toward each other.

This is a love story. This is a romance. This is a narrative that lets you dive into the depths of Koti’s and Ian’s relationship. It’s a story filled with emotion, feeling, lust, love, anger, hopelessness, courage, acceptance, joy and much, much more. It is captivating!

Even though there are some heavy topics addressed in the book, there’s lightness and much humour that balances nicely.


Add a gorgeous island setting and a great cast of secondary characters, especially Koti’s BFF Jasmine, and you’re looking at one spectacular book. The road to a happy ever after is not smooth for this couple but the journey to get there is worth it. I highly recommend this book.

2018-0627 Avery Flynn

Synopsis
Looks aren’t everything.
It’s true. I’m not what most people would call “pretty” and, well, high school was rough. Fast forward ten years and life is good…
Until a bunch of jerks think it’s hilarious to put the “butterface” (AKA me) on a wedding Kiss Cam with the hottest guy ever—and that old humiliation hits hard.
I recognize him immediately. The hottest cop in Waterbury and totally out of my league.
But then he kisses me.
And we totally forget the room, the crowd, everything.
Then he tells everyone we’ve been dating for months.
Soon everything starts to feel too real, from adorable fights over “necessary” tools to fix my broken porch to surviving a free-for-all dinner with his six siblings to picking up where our last kiss left off.
But there’s something he’s not telling me about why he’s really hanging around, and I’m pretty sure it has to do with my mob-connected brothers.
Because this is not a makeover story, and Cinderella is only a fairy tale…

About Avery
USA Today bestselling romance author Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip. She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staffs knew her by name. Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.

Synopsis

A brand new contemporary romance from New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans.

It started as a game.

Then I discovered who he was: Gambler. Famous playboy. Silver-eyed player who never plays to lose...
And my best friend’s soon-to-be brother in law, Cullen Carmichael.
He needed a good luck charm, I needed a distraction.
So we made a gamble and set off for Vegas—but pretty soon—I was in too deep.
My heart, soul, and body weren't supposed to be part of the deal.
But somewhere between big wins and long nights, my house of cards started to tumble.
What was this devil with those piercing eyes doing to me?
I’d given up on love, but the wicked, all-in Cullen Carmichael was upping the ante and wouldn’t stop until he’d won it all.

MY THOUGHTS

This is a tough one to review. There are so many things I liked about TIEBREAKER. In general I liked the writing, the characters, and the setting but there were a couple of issues that I struggled with.

My two biggest concerns were the reason for Noah’s decision to break up with Maren and then the manner in which he forced the separation.  Now knowing the background, I cannot blame him for deciding to break things off. He was in a difficult position and his options were limited. Yet, I was left feeling hollow and unfulfilled at a time in the book when I should be feeling joy that the couple are finally communicating and telling all their secrets. However, what he did to make Maren leave was inexcusable. It‘s not up to me to forgive him, that’s Maren’s call. Yet she chooses to forgive him in an instant, and that significantly undermined my respect for Noah.

There are moments of lightness and humour throughout, which help balance out the serious times.   A special mention goes out to Maren’s sister Annabelle. She’s got a mouth on her and her fights with Maren are very funny.  I am so glad she and police chief Alex Brandt will be getting their own book.

TIEBREAKER was well written and the book held my interest to the end. There were many parts that I liked, and that wonderful epilogue alleviated some of my butt-hurt feelings but I was unable to shake off all the uncomfortable thoughts I had while reading.

Meet P. Dangelico
Dangelico loves romance in all forms, cuddly creatures (four legged and two), really bloody sexy pulp, the NY Jets (although she’s reconsidering after this season), and to while away the day at the barn (apparently she does her best thinking shoveling horse crap). What she’s not enamored with is referring to herself in the third person and social media so don’t expect her to get on Twitter anytime soon. Oh, and although she was born in Italy, she’s been Jersey Strong since she turned six.

New Release Book Review: Let Me Be Your Last by Lynsey M. Stewart


Let Me Be Your Last
by
Lynsey M. Stewart
Synopsis:
Gem Brown had it all. A successful husband, two gorgeous boys, and a life mapped out. Until doubt started to creep in.

Suspicion can drive you mad.

But suspicion can also prove you right.

The day Gem found her husband teetering on the edge of ecstasy, his mistress on her knees before him, provided her with…clarity. She would never trust a man again.

But four years later, through the strength of friendship and the love of her kids, Gem feels ready to start taking chances.

And then comes Josh. He’s a match made in heaven (or was it Loveisintheair.com?). Epic dates, swoon-worthy grand gestures, and a promise of happiness threaten to test her never-trust-a-man-again mantra.

But is Gem ready to fall in love again? Will Gem and Josh ever start testing the theory that high levels of sexual tension often lead to earth shifting sex? Can Josh help her to heal old wounds, or will ghosts of the past fail to let her go?

‘You are easy to love, Gem. It’s others that make it difficult.’

This novel contains strong language and graphic descriptions of sex; therefore this novel is only suitable for 18+

This is the fourth book in the Music and Letters series but can be read as a standalone. 


  
My Thoughts

I loved Gem and Josh’s story! LET ME BE YOUR LAST is not only a fantastic book on its own but as a conclusion to the Letters & Music series.


The relationship between is Gem and Josh is incredibly romantic. The connection between them is physical, spiritual and emotional. It’s not always a smooth path, but once they are both sure they want to pursue this bond between them, they work together to make it happen.

As swoony as Josh is, the star for me was Gem. She married young, had children young, and stood on the sidelines as her friends check off all the boxes that 20-somethings typically do. Now divorced, it’s her time to try and find herself while balancing the responsibilities of parenthood. Gem absolutely blossoms and I was cheering for her from the first page.  

Like all books in the series, the friends (Abi, Elle & Kate) make an appearance, adding their trademark personalities to the mix.

The books in this series are stand alones, but I would recommend reading them in order to get the most out them.
