Review: Simply Irresistible by Melody Grace

“If you like Sweet Magnolias and Virgin River, you’ll fall in love with Sweetbriar Cove!”

Escape to Cape Cod with this feel-good summer romance. Millions of readers have fallen for the bestselling series — join them today!

Jules Rivera loves a challenge. She’s saved failing businesses, and transformed scruffy guys into handsome bachelors — who turn around and leave her in the dust. Some thanks. She vows not to make the same mistakes again… until she stumbles over a gorgeous, run-down vineyard in Sweetbriar Cove. Jules knows the place could be something special. And as for the surly, rugged owner? All her instincts tell her, he’s something pretty special too…

Reeve Hastings has no intention of being anyone’s project. He’s trying to save his family legacy, and he doesn’t need help from anyone, especially not the brunette spitfire who knows nothing about wine. But Jules is annoyingly determined — and full of surprisingly good ideas — and soon, she’s making her mark on the vineyard. And driving Reeve crazy, in all the best, most tantalizing ways…

Jules knows she should keep businesses and pleasure far apart, but Reeve’s smile is more intoxicating than any bottle of Merlot. And as for his kisses… Simply irresistible. Their passion is undeniable, but with the future of the vineyard on the line, can this summer fling put down roots? Or will past heartache spoil their chance of happy-ever-after?

Find out in the new stand-alone Sweetbriar Cove love story — featuring all your favorite characters at the Beachcomber Inn!

MY REVIEW

What an absolute joy it is to back in the world of Sweetbriar Cove! Simply Irresistible is the 16th book in this beloved series, but can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel.

When we first meet up with Jules, her entire life has been turned upside down. If losing her job, boyfriend, and apartment in the same day wasn’t bad enough, Jules gets a flat tire on the way to visit her friend in the pouring down rain. When she goes to look for help, the last thing she planned on was Reeve. Reeve too was angry at the world and wasn’t ready to deal with people, but especially not the beautiful out-of-towner, Jules…

Simply Irresistible is a quick, yet satisfying read. The characters were easy to connect with and had me loving their beautiful small town. Sweetbriar Cove is one of those towns that is built on long lasting friendships. Sure, everyone knows everyone and gossip spreads faster than wildfire, but that just adds to the charm. And when you add two hot strangers to the mix, all bets are off!

I had the best time getting to know Jules and Reeve. From the moment I met these two characters, I knew their story was going to be a good one and I wasn’t disappointed. You could feel the instant chemistry between them and despite Reeve always putting his foot in his mouth, I couldn’t help but root for the surly vineyard owner. As with any good love story, the road to happily ever after can’t be an easy one. Naturally there are obstacles our couple must overcome, and I have to tell you, I loved watching these two try to figure things out. Jules and Reeve stole my heart and I couldn’t have been more happier with the outcome.

In the end, Simply Irresistible was just that, an irresistibly good romance. The kind of romance that captivates you instantly. The kind that makes you feel as though you’re a part of the story and makes you feel right at home. The kind of story that makes you swoon and in the end leaves you with a smile on your face. Simply Irresistible is a wonderful addition to the Sweetbriar Cove series and I look forward to getting my hands on the next book in this much loved series.

Review: The Rookie by Kendall Ryan

A talented rookie who’s about to lose it all. A reluctant sports therapist who might be able to help.

He has everything a man could want. A lucrative hockey contract. Adoring fans. A family who loves him.

But he’s about to throw it all away. Logan Tate’s name is dominating the headlines for all the wrong reasons. Instead of goals and assists, the talented young defenseman has been racking up fights and suspensions.

I work with athletes who are struggling, but Logan’s different. He’s not just going to blow his season, but his entire career. And now he can’t return to the ice until he deals with his issues, but the stubborn man won’t let anyone get close enough to help.

Which is why I packed up and followed him to his family’s property in the remote mountains of Colorado. He can’t avoid me here.

The only problem?
I can’t avoid him either. He’s chopping wood and building fires, rescuing my car from snowy ditches, and inviting me to Sunday dinners with his loud extended family. He’s a whole lot of man, but beneath all those hard edges is an unexpected tenderness.

Tempted or not, I have to stay out of his bed and get him back to the ice . . . no matter how difficult that might be.

MY REVIEW

Logan Tate has everything a man could want. A lucrative hockey contract, fans, and a family who adores him. But instead of racking up goals and assists, his name is the headlines for all the wrong reasons. That’s where Summer comes into play. Summer works with struggling athletes, but she’s got her work cut out for her where Logan is concerned. So in order to get Logan back on track, Summer finds herself at his family’s property in the mountains of Colorado. What could possibly go wrong??

The Rookie is a quick and easy read that will draw readers in instantly and will leave them wanting more. I loved the dynamic of Logan’s family. They looked out for one another, but weren’t afraid to add humor to the story. Despite Logan’s stubbornness, his chemistry with Summer was off the charts. Their romance was quite the slow burn, but completely satisfying.

Overall, I found this book to an enjoyable read and I think it’s a great addition to the Looking to Score Series. With relatable and fun characters, romance, and just a dash of drama, The Rookie is a romance that you won’t want to miss out on.

MY REVIEW

The Brazen is the latest novel from author Willa Nash that will capture readers and hearts and leave them swooning over this small-town romance.

The Brazen follows the story of Kerrigan and Pierce. Kerrigan’s got dreams and will do anything to make them come true, even if that means overextending herself. When Kerrigan’s investor passes suddenly, her world gets turned upside down. On the surface, Pierce seems like he wants to ruin Kerrigan’s life, but if there’s one thing to know about Kerrigan, it’s that she won’t go down without a fight. When a snowstorm traps Kerrigan and Pierce together, these two, sorta enemies, must put their differences aside if they’re going to survive this storm together….

The Brazen is the third book in the Calamity Montana series and was everything that I was hoping it would be. I loved the tension and banter between Kerrigan and Pierce. I loved Kerrigan’s determination and her never give up spirit. She was just as stubborn as Pierce, and had a huge heart to go along with it. Pierce wasn’t all bad. He was kind of a jerk in the beginning, but he had good reasons for his reservations. I loved getting to know him and seeing what made him tick. Kerrigan was exactly what Pierce needed in his life. She made him open his eyes and learn how to trust again and I had an absolute fun time watching these two fall…

Overall, I thought this book was a quick and enjoyable read. The characters were real and easy to relate to. I enjoyed the family drama and the unexpected twists. This book was filled with all the swoon and romance that we’ve come to know and love from this author and I’m excited to see where this series will take us readers next!

Review: Learning to Live by Kira Adams

Review: Learning to Live by Kira Adams

Ciera
All I wanted was to be able to make it through my senior year. I didn’t need the stares, the jokes, or the bullies. I thought I could do it all on my own, but I was wrong. He filled my veins like a poison, the kind you can’t run from. Harsh and uncaring, he was broken, but somewhere along the way he seeped into my pores. There was no way out, so that left me with one choice: to open his eyes to the beauty around him–to help him live.

Topher
She wasn’t on my agenda; it was fate’s cruel way of telling me I needed to get my shit together. To be fair, my head was so far up my ass, I’m not sure how we extracted it. I knew the power I held over my peers, and I exuded it daily. I could have had any girl I wanted at the snap of my fingers, and yet I found myself fantasizing about her–someone so far off my radar it wasn’t even funny. She helped me understand that sometimes you need to let go to really live.

Sometimes being alive means taking risks.

Learning to Live is the first book in the Infinite Love series.


The Infinite Love series comes with hard hitting subjects such as bullying, suicide, depression, disorders, abuse, addiction, fears, love, death, and more. The stories aren’t going to be pretty, but they are going to be real.

MY REVIEW

Learning to Live is an unexpected, and heartbreaking love story. Told from dual points of view, this story doesn’t back down from the hard and uncomfortable topics. Topher and Ciera’s journey isn’t easy, but is so worth the ride.

When we first meet up with Ciera, we learn that she just wants to disappear and fade into the background. She is relentlessly bullied by a former friend and the popular kids. Her goal, just to take one day at a time and make the most out of the time she has left. What she wasn’t planning on was him. The last thing on Topher’s radar was Ciera…that is until one day he stands up for her. Since that moment, he can’t help but take notice. There’s just something about her. She’s not the typical girl that flocks to him and hangs on his every word. And now that his eyes are open, he can’t stop thinking about her. Unfortunately for these two, fate has other plans for them…..

Overall, I thought this book was a quick read. I was pulled into the story instantly and couldn’t wait to find out more. I hated the way that Ciera was treated and that she was too afraid to stand up to her bullies. Topher was kind of a jerk, but I quickly discovered that he wasn’t cut from the same cloth as his friends. Once his eyes were opened to how horrible his so-called “friends” were, he didn’t let them disrespect Ciera. Speaking of Ciera, I thought Topher’s feelings and concerns for were real and genuine. I liked their unexpected friendship that quickly changed into more.

Learning to Live deals with a lot of heavy and uncomfortable subject matter. I applaud the author for the way she tackled these tough issues. I thought she handled them with care and honesty.

Learning to Live is my first book by this author and most certainly won’t be my last. Learning to Live is written with a lot of heart and honesty. It’s real and tough at times. It’s a story of unexpected first love and learning to accept the challenges life throws your way, and most importantly, learning to live….

Review: Paws and Prejudice by Alanna Martin

It’s up to a trio of adorable rescue huskies to make two lonely hearts in a coastal Alaskan town realize that true love is worth too much to turn tail and run.

Glaciers have nothing on Kelsey Porter when she decides to freeze someone out. After getting burned once, she’s not about to let it happen again. And right now all that icy contempt is focused on one annoyingly attractive and entitled interloper: Ian Roth. Not only is he looking to take advantage of her quaint, coastal community, tainting the small-town charm of Helen, Alaska, but he has committed the one crime she can never forgive—he doesn’t like her dogs.

Unlike what Kelsey believes, Ian loves Helen’s charms as much as she does. That’s partly why he’s determined to open a brewery there, and he’s not about to let anything or anyone stop his dream from coming true. But he didn’t count on the beautiful, prickly woman getting under his skin. Or having to be within hand-biting proximity of her three huge huskies.

When Kelsey’s family conscripts her into helping Ian get his brewery off the ground, she finds herself caught between a rock and a hard . . . muscular . . . man who has a fear of dogs. But the longer they work together, the more she can feel herself begin to thaw. Now she’ll have to choose: let sleeping dogs lie to protect her heart, or mush head-on toward love.

MY REVIEW

Small-Town Romance ✔

Enemies to Lovers ✔

Pride and Prejudice Re-Telling ✔✔

Paws and Prejudice is a fun and entertaining romantic comedy that is sure to capture the heart of any romance lover!

Paws and Prejudice follows the story of Kelsey and Ian. When it comes to men, Kelsey is guarded and isn’t about to let just any guy get close. That is until Ian blows into to town and turns her world upside down. At first glance, Kelsey finds Ian to be annoyingly attractive, until he commits one fatal crime, his dislike of dogs. That’s not the only problem Kelsey runs into. Soon Kelsey will find herself stuck in an unimaginable situation. Does she continue to protect her heart or does she take a chance on love? There’s only one way to find out…

Overall, I thought this was a really cute read. I really dug the small-town vibes and loved all of the Pride and Prejudice elements. I was captivated by Kelsey and Ian instantly and really enjoyed their banter. They started off like enemies and the more time they spent together, the more their chemistry grew. However, the road to happily ever after wasn’t an easy one. When you throw small-town gossip and feuding families into the mix, you’ve got yourself one recipe for disaster….

Paws and Prejudice was a quick, yet satisfying read. It checked off all my boxes and I couldn’t help falling head over heels for Kelsey and Ian. I can’t wait to check out more of the Hearts of Alaska Series.

Friends With Benedicts, a brand new, heart felt rom-com from Staci Hart, is finally LIVE!! Who’s reading? Grab your copy today from your favorite online book retailer!

Timing is everything.

Presley Hale and Sebastian Vargas are no strangers to goodbye. Their high school summers were spent wrapped up in each other until she would inevitably go home to California. One season after college, Sebastian finally escaped the little Texas town to travel the world, and they said goodbye for what they thought might be the last time.

Sebastian went one way. Presley went the other.

For the first time in five years, they’re both in town, but the timing is no better than ever. So the only thing to do is what they do best. Keep it casual.

Friends with benefits.

They’ve done it before—doing it again will be easy.

But their hearts don’t get the memo.

When the lines of their arrangement blur, Presley and Sebastian are faced with decisions they’ve avoided for years. And that’s not even their biggest problem.

A small town in danger of failing.

A secret that could tear them apart.

And two hearts that can’t hide anymore.

They’ve shared so many summers, but none compare to what they’ll face.

Timing is everything.

And their time is almost up.

MY REVIEW

“If the Blum sisters could upset the balance of the solar system, Presley could have swallowed up the universe with the voracity of a black hole.”

“Sometimes we mistakenly figure them for equals. We look at those things we need–money, shelter, and the like–and assume having those things will make us happy. But surviving and living aren’t the same thing. I think we forget that, on occasion. Usually when it matters most.”

Friends With Benedicts is a smartly written small-town romance.

Friends With Benedicts follows the story of Presley and Sebastian. Presley and Sebastian’s love story rocks a friends with benefits vibe with all the small-town goodness readers will just eat up. These two had an undeniable connection and neither one could stand being in town without the other. But, when Sebastian’s dreams take him away from this small town in Texas, he had no way of knowing that Presley’s life was being turned upside down. Now, almost 5 years later, Sebastian and Presley are reunited. Like magnets, they can’t help the pull they feel for one another. Sebastian is hoping that this time he will finally get to keep the girl he’s always wanted, but when a big secret is revealed, only time will tell if Sebastian and Presley will finally get their happily ever after…

I absolutely adored Sebastian and Presley’s story. You could just feel their chemistry ooze off of the pages. Every summer when Presley would come to visit, she would find herself in Sebastian’s arms. These two wanted nothing more than to be together, but the timing was never right. Flash forward 5 years, and both Sebastian and Presley’s lives have changed. Presley and her mother find themselves returning home to a place they never thought they’d come back to. Now, that Presley is home, she knows she has to find Sebastian and confess her secret, even if it means losing him forever….

Friends With Benedicts is everything a small-town romance lover could ask for. It’s got a rumor mill that never stops and town you can’t help but fall in love with. The characters are fun and easy to connect with. You can’t help but want to know more about each and every one of them. Sebastian and Presley were perfectly matched, and yet perfectly imperfect. They both had flaws and fears to move past. Yes, there were times where I wanted to shake some sense into both of them, but at the end of the day, these two managed to win my heart over and cheer them on as they worked toward their happily ever after.

Author Staci Hart has once again delivered an unforgettable romance. I had the best time falling in love with these characters and I can’t wait to see what this author has up her sleeves for us next!

*I was provided an ARC copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review*

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

Review: Neon Gods (Dark Olympus #1) by Katee Robert

Society darling Persephone Dimitriou wants nothing to do with her mother’s ambitions. She’s biding her time until she’s able to leave the ultra-modern city of Olympus and start her doctorate degree. The one thing she never planned on? Her mother ambushing her with an engagement to Zeus—a man with more than a few dead wives in his past. Persephone will do anything to escape that fate…even flee the sparkling upper city and make a devil’s bargain with a man she once believed was a myth.

Hades has spent his life in the shadows, and he has no intention of stepping into the light. Not even for the woman who flees into his territory as if the very hounds of hell are on her heels. But when he finds that Persephone can offer a little slice of the revenge he’s spent his entire life craving? It’s all the excuse he needs to agree to help her—for a price. She’ll be his for the summer, and then he’ll see her safely out of Olympus and away from her mother and Zeus.

Hades and Persephone’s deal might seem simple enough, but they both quickly realize it’s anything but. With every breathless night spent with Hades, Persephone wonders at her ability to leave him behind. And Hades? Now that he has a taste for Persephone, he’s willing to go to war with Olympus itself to keep her…

MY REVIEW

Neon Gods is the first book in the sexy and exciting Dark Olympus Series. Neon Gods is a refreshing and sexy modern take on Persephone & Hades. Their story will grab you from the first page and leave you devouring each and every naughty word….

When we first meet up with Persephone, she’s just biding her time until her 25th birthday. In just a few short months she’ll be free from the world of the 13 and will finally be able to make a life of her own. At least that was the plan until her mother ambushed her. Now, Persephone finds herself engaged to a man that everyone fears. She’ll do anything to escape that fate, even if it means she’s got to make a deal with the devil himself….

Neon Gods was a quick, yet exciting read. I was captivated by Persephone from the very first page. Persephone felt very real and I loved how relatable the author made her. And Hades…Hades was a very naughty man 😉 He was fierce, determined, and not afraid to take Zeus on. He was in way over his head with Persephone, but once he got his hands on her, there was no going back.

Overall, I thought this book was a fun and thrilling read. I devoured it easily in just a few short hours. I found this modern re-telling to be refreshing and sexy. The story felt familiar, yet brand new at the same time. I loved getting swept up in Persephone and Hades and can not wait to see who’s story the author is going to tell next!

Tropes: Unforgettable Meet-Cute, Opposites Attract, Office Romance, Neighbors-to-Lovers, Friends-to-Lovers, Perfect Spring Read.

She was everything he never knew he needed.
He was everything she avoided.

💗

It’s not the first time I’ve been called a stalker.

I can’t blame Andrew Christiansen for thinking I am since we keep crossing paths, especially when I pop up in the most unexpected of places—his office.


We’re opposites in every way. Not the kind that attract.

I’ve been called a ray of sunshine. He’s been called a grumpy workaholic that needs an attitude adjustment. By me.

Somehow, we become friends, the teasing, flirting, and kissing kind. But this thing blooming between us threatens to turn this relationship from friends-to-lovers into a full-blown office romance.

That’s the least of my worries because one or two, little, okay big, secrets I’ve been keeping may turn him from the one I want into the one I can’t have.

MY REVIEW

The One I Want is a fun and delightful read from author S.L. Scott.

The One I Want follows the story of Andrew and Juni. If ever there was a couple that fate was trying to bring together, it was these two. Andrew and Juni kept running into one another in the most unexpected places. They are complete opposites, but you know how the saying goes, opposites attract in the most delicious ways…

I had the best time getting swept up in Andrew and Juni’s story. I was captivated from the very first page and couldn’t get enough of their banter and chance encounters. Juni was absolutely loveable. She’s got a bright and fun personality that just pulls people to her. When it comes to Andrew, she is just what the doctor ordered. If there’s anyone that can turn this grumpy workaholics around, it’s Juni! Together, these two are a total breath of fresh air. I fell hard, fast, and in the end, I couldn’t get enough.

The One I Want is smartly written, captivating, and will make you swoon. I loved the characters and their story. I loved the banter and chemistry between Andrew and Juni. I loved how opposite these two were and their journey to a happily ever after. Andrew and Juni’s story made me laugh, swoon, and in the end, it left a huge smile on my face.

Excerpt:

I hear a familiar bark and turn back. The woman from the park rushes toward the nearest shop as if I didn’t just bust her for following me. “What are you doing?” I ask. “Are you stalking me?” I might be jumping ahead of myself, but better to settle it now. A lot of weird stuff was happening at the park. Is she to blame?

Despite Rascal’s joy to see me, obstinance stiffens her shoulders, and she scoffs. “You wish.” Her hand flies out. “It just so happens that I’m walking in the same direction. So what?”

“Defensive,” I reply, analyzing her body language. Crossed arms. Straight line across her lips. Half-mast eyelids as she glares at me.

“I’m not defensive. I’m offended. You just called me a stalker.”

“My bad.”

“You’re bad, all right.” She angles her chin up, and adds, “You can go about your day now.”

I’m tempted to chuckle, but I’m thinking it’s wise to restrain myself. “I will. Good day.”

“Good day, sir,” she says to my back as I walk away.

I stop again, but this time, I don’t look back. Forcing myself to walk forward, I continue through the upscale neighborhood to the next block. I busy my attention on the architecture until I hear Rascal bark again.

I knew I shouldn’t have talked to a stranger. She may be hot, but she could also be deranged, using her dog as a ploy to trick her next victim to her lair. What am I even talking about?

When I turn back this time, she sidles quickly up to a coffee shop window, pretending to know the people sitting on the other side.

By how they turn their backs to her, they don’t reciprocate. “Nice try,” I tease.

Glancing at me, she huffs. “I’m walking in the same direction. It’s no big deal, for God’s sake.” She punctuates the words with an epic eye roll as if I’m putting her out. Huffing, she grabs Rascal, clutching him to her side.

“His feet have—”

“Shit.”

“Exactly.”

Anger fills her chest, and she shakes her head, exhaling it loudly with a foot stomp. “Ugh! I’ll go this way.”

As. If. I’m the nuisance.

Me?

Why am I even sticking around to have this conversation? Why am I bothering? Going in different directions—that’s us. She crosses the street, and I turn the corner, both of us heading back to our own lives and hopefully never seeing each other again.

I continue toward the building up ahead alone. I’m good. I’m fine. Alone is how I thrive. I’ll be here a year or two. That’s nothing. I have plenty of work to keep me busy.

Work.

I’m here for work. That’s it. I have a plan in place, and nothing and no one will keep me from achieving my goals.

Review: Maybe We Will by Melissa Foster

From Melissa Foster, the New York Times bestselling author of She Loves Me, comes a sexy and heart-warming novel about finding love—and family—where you least expect it.

When chef Abby de Messiéres returns to Silver Island with her sister to get their late mother’s affairs in order, she expected to inherit her mother’s bistro along with their childhood home, not to discover a half sister they never knew existed, and a handsome vacationer camped out on her mother’s patio.

Workaholic Aiden Aldridge has been sent to Silver Island on a work-free vacation, armed with a “Let Loose List,” and ordered to get a life by the much-younger sister he raised after the death of their parents. After years of focusing on his sister’s well-being, he’s blindsided by his intense attraction to the gorgeous, free-spirited Abby.

Aiden might not know much about chilling out, but he’s excellent at striking deals. He helps Abby with the restaurant in exchange for her help in tackling the items on his list. Sparks fly as Aiden and Abby work, and play, side by side. Intimate conversations lead to steamy kisses and undeniable passion. But there’s more to Aiden then Abby knows, and when the truth comes out, their new romance is put to the test, as the two find out if true love really can conquer all.

MY REVIEW

Maybe We Will is the first book in the Silver Harbor Series and follows the story of Aiden & Abby. Abby is in a rut and finds herself returning home with her sister after their mom passes away. While getting their mother’s affairs in order, they quickly discover as secret their mother has been keeping…they have a sister they never knew about. On top of that, someone wants to buy their mother’s bistro and Abby isn’t having it! That brings us to Aiden. Aiden is the very definition of a workaholic and only took some time off because his little sister made him. Aiden is about as clueless as them come when it comes to taking a time out and finds himself completely blindsided by Abby. Sparks fly between Aiden and Abby instantly and the more time they spend with one another, the deeper they fall. Sounds perfect right? Well, Aiden is keeping a pretty big secret from Abby and only time will tell if Abby will be willing to forgive and forget…

Maybe We Will is a fun, sweet, and sexy read. I fell for the characters instantly and couldn’t wait to dive further into their story. I loved the relationship Abby had with her sister Deirdra. They were total opposites, but you could tell they’d do anything for each other. Finding out they had a secret sister, Cait, definitely threw them for a loop, but one moment with Cait and you just knew she was the perfect fit. I really enjoyed the time we spent with Cait and Deirdra and hope to see those 2 ladies in future books.

That bring us to Aiden. Aiden is literally the perfect guy. His one flaw, he’s a workaholic. He doesn’t know what sitting still and relaxing means. But once you get to know Aiden, you realize he is the absolute sweetest guy ever. He loves big and he loves hard and it doesn’t hurt one bit that he’s the alpha type.

Together, you might think that Aiden and Abby are an unlikely pair. Abby is a dreamer and a free spirit. She wears her emotions on her sleeves and isn’t afraid to fight for what she wants. The sparks between Abby and Aiden were on the scene immediately. I loved watching these two try to figure things out and couldn’t wait to see how it would all come together in the end.

Maybe We Will is a heartwarming and sexy read. The characters are easy to relate to and fall for. Maybe We Will is well written, entertaining, and paced well. This story is written with a lot of charm and heart. There’s some drama, but nothing over the top. And of course, you can’t for get the sweet and sexy romance that will leave you with a smile on your face and devouring every last word. I had a fun time getting lost in Abby and Aiden’s story and can not wait to see what else the Silver Harbor Series has in store for us next!

Release Blitz with Review: Just One Night by Carly Phillips

JUST ONE NIGHT

Carly Phillips

Release Date: April 20

She’s the woman he can’t live without.

The one he can’t risk screwing up their relationship by sleeping with her.

Linc Kingston doesn’t accept anything less than perfection. Not in his billion-dollar business or in his personal life. He has it all. Except one thing. His personal assistant and best friend in his bed, moaning his name. No matter how much Linc wants her, she’s completely off-limits.

Jordan Greene grew up the daughter of the housekeeper at the Kingston estate, where she met and bonded with Linc at a young age, despite their economic differences. But no matter how close they are now or how much their attraction simmers beneath the surface, they’re still from two different worlds. Besides, Jordan isn’t about to risk losing her best friend for one sensual night.

Jordan might be the only woman who can handle Linc and his domineering, bossy attitude, but beneath that gruff exterior is a vulnerable man who, despite his wealth, has had a less-than-charmed life. And when Linc’s father dies, she’s there for him—unwavering in her friendship.

Until one night of passion and a positive pregnancy test changes everything.

MY REVIEW

Just One Night follows the story of Jordan and Linc. Jordan and Linc are the best of friends and always have each other’s back. But underneath that friendship is a fire just waiting to be explored……So, when Linc has to go out of town to take care of a family matter, he of course, brings Jordan along for the ride. Linc and Jordan are from two different worlds, yet somehow make it work. They get each other and would do anything for each other. Until one night when the lines between friendship and more get blurred. Will Linc and Jordan take a chance on love or will they be destined to remain friends? There’s only one way to find out….

Just One Night was a quick and easy read. I easily finished it in just a few short hours. I fell in love with Linc and Jordan right away. Their chemistry was off the charts and left me begging for more. I loved the ease of the two of them together. Their banter and the way they anticipated each others needs…GAH! I loved it. I lived for the will they/won’t they moments. Jordan is just what the doctor ordered for Linc. She can handle him and doesn’t let him get away with anything. I loved Linc’s kind heart, alpha attitude, and his ability to make up for the mistakes he makes.

Overall, I thought this book was a really enjoyable read and I look forward to checking out more in this series.
