Review: The Bookworm’s Guide to Flirting by Emma Hart

Review: The Bookworm’s Guide to Flirting by Emma Hart

What I thought I’d get on Valentine’s Day: a card.
What I got on Valentine’s Day: a blind date with my brand new roommate.

Let it be known that I, Saylor Green, am wholeheartedly against blind dating. I think it’s superficial, unnecessary, and designed wholly to force people into relationships they aren’t ready for.
It’s me. I’m people.
So when Dylan Parker takes the seat across from me, I’m ready to dismiss him at one glance.
The problem? He’s hot and funny and sweet and the exact kind of guy I read about in the romance novels I sell like hotcakes in my bookstore.
He’s also my new roommate.
Who likes to walk around in his sweatpants and peer over my shoulder and comment on all my online dating escapades.
When he offers to help me flirt my way to dating success, I’m all for it.
But what am I supposed to do when the only person I want to flirt with is… Dylan?

MY REVIEW

The Bookworm’s Guide to Flirting is the third book in the Bookworm’s Guide Series and it follows the story of Dylan and Saylor. The last thing on Saylor’s mind is getting set up on a blind date. She’s totally against it. But, when her friends beg her to participate, she can’t say no. What she least expected was to find her roommate Dylan sitting across from her. He’s funny, sweet, and has all the qualities you’d want to find in a great book boyfriend. The problem? You guessed it. He’s her roommate. At first, the two of them laugh it off as a plan their buddies put together but quickly turns into more. Suddenly, Dylan is looking more interesting to Saylor. And when Dylan offers to help Saylor with her flirting, all bets are off. Will these two open their eyes and take a chance on what’s in front of them? There’s only one way to find out….

The Bookworm’s Guide to Flirting is a quick and entertaining read. I thought this story was written well and I loved Emma Hart’s signature humor. You can easily find yourself devouring this book in just a few short hours. I thought the idea of this story was a lot of fun. I was entertained by the banter and humorous moments. I loved the chemistry that Dylan and Saylor shared. Dylan was exactly the guy Saylor could see herself with but she had to get over the fact that he was her roommate. That fact alone, had me dying to see what would happen between the two of them.

Overall, I had a fun time getting swept up in Saylor and Dylan’s story. It was really easy to connect with and get lost in these two. Emma Hart delivers another wonderfully entertaining read that is sure to leave readers glued to the pages right until the very end. And I for one, can not wait to see what this author has in store for us readers next!

Review: The Stud Next Door by Kendall Ryan

Review: The Stud Next Door by Kendall Ryan

The Stud Next Door

By Kendall Ryan

Release Day: January 19, 2021

Life threw me a curveball. An adorable eight-pound, four-ounce curveball with her mother’s eyes and my dark hair. I’d like to think my single-dad game is strong, but honestly? I’ve been struggling a little.

When a beautiful young woman moves in next door and offers to give me a hand, I jump at the chance to hire her as a nanny. Jessa is amazing with my daughter. She’s also patient, kind, and way too pretty.

The number one rule of hiring a nanny? Don’t bed the nanny.

It’s a rule I intend to keep.

 But as the days pass, I begin to realize how much my life is missing. Companionship. Romance. Intimacy. When I discover my heart has space for one more female, it’s a lost cause, another curveball. The hot-as-hell nanny is leaving soon for a mission trip to Central America. No sense in letting myself fantasize about Jessa being a permanent part of my life.

The closer we get, the more difficult it becomes to keep my feelings in check, because my heart won’t listen. And neither will my libido.

Well, you know what they say. Rules are meant to be broken . . .

MY REVIEW

The Stud Next Door is a sweet and sexy read that is sure to leave readers with a smile on their faces and is the perfect read to kick off the new year.

The Stud Next Door follows the story of single dad, Connor and Jessa. Connor is adjusting to life as a single father, but when it comes to parenting advice, he doesn’t have anyone to turn to and juggling work and a baby is harder than it appears. So when Jessa appears, it’s like all of Connor’s prayers have been answered. The only problem, she’s leaving in two months….

The Stud Next Door was a quick and easy read for me. I fell head over heels for Connor and Jessa instantly. They clicked right off the bat. And while their chemistry was off the charts, they wanted what was best for baby Marley and tried to fight the intensity of what they were feeling. Even though they tried to fight it, their feelings were too much to be ignored. They were the perfect match in all the ways and I just loved the ease of their relationship.

The Stud Next Door is the perfect read to kick off the new year with. It’s sexy, sweet, and well written. I loved that this story didn’t have an ounce of drama to it. It was just a straight-up love story that captured my heart from the first page and left me devouring each and every word. All in all, a great read to spend your day curled up with!

Review: Our Italian Summer by Jennifer Probst

From New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst comes a new women’s fiction novel featuring three generations of Ferrari women who need to heal the broken pieces of their lives…and one trip of a lifetime through Italy.

Workaholic, career-obsessed Francesca is fiercely independent and successful in all areas of life except one: family. She struggles to make time for her relationship with her teenage daughter, Allegra, and the two have become practically strangers to each other. When Allegra hangs out with a new crowd and is arrested for drug possession, Francesca gives in to her mother’s wish that they take one epic summer vacation to trace their family roots in Italy. What she never expected was to be faced with the choice of a lifetime. . . .

Allegra wants to make her grandmother happy, but she hates the idea of forced time with her mother and vows to fight every step of the ridiculous tour, until a young man on the verge of priesthood begins to show her the power of acceptance, healing, and the heartbreaking complications of love.

Sophia knows her girls are in trouble. A summer filled with the possibility for change is what they all desperately need. Among the ruins of ancient Rome, the small churches of Assisi, and the rolling hills of Tuscany, Sophia hopes to show her girls that the bonds of family are everything, and to remind them that they can always lean on one another, before it’s too late.

My Review

Our Italian Summer heart-warming story of family, second chances, and learning to forgive.

Our Italian Summer follows the story of three generations of Ferrari women. Francesca is the quintessential workaholic that has let her work consume her and leaves little room for much else. She struggles desperately for a relationship with her daughter but isn’t ready to make the necessary changes. Allegra struggles to be the person her mother wants her to be. She’s frustrated with her mom and her current state of life. Her struggles lead her to hanging out with the wrong crowd and making risky decisions. Sophia’s life is in its own state of chaos. She sees her daughter and granddaughter struggling and wants nothing more to make things right. However, Sophia is keeping a secret of her own. But before she reveals her truth, she tries to convince her family that a trip to Italy is exactly what they all need. Follow these three women on their journey as they face what life throws them and takes them on an adventure of a lifetime…

Our Italian Summer captivated me from the very first page. I was intrigued by the Ferrari women and found each of their stories relatable. In a way, this book isn’t just a story about their journeys, but also a love letter to Italy. The beauty and history of the city are immersed in the pages and brings the culture to life. You learn more about these women and the choices they are faced with. You learn what is important in life and the changes that must be made, no matter how hard it may seem. I for one couldn’t wait to see which direction their stories would take them.

Our Italian Summer is a story of hope and forgiveness. It’s a story of pain and difficult choices. It’s a story of second chances and first love. Most importantly, it’s a story of family and the bonds that we make. This story was rich, beautiful, and will certainly tug at the reader’s heartstrings. It was unexpected in the best way possible and I couldn’t help but devour it.  I enjoyed every moment of this story from beginning to end and hope that I too, one day, will be able to take a trip to Italy…

Blog Tour: Release Blitz with Review: Forsaken Trail by Devney Perry

Aria Saint-James has planned the perfect getaway: sweatpants, takeout and two weeks alone with her sister and nephew. Nowhere on that list is wearing a low-cut dress and uncomfortable heels to attend a wedding where she knows neither the bride nor the groom. Toss in her nemesis, Brody Carmichael, and her road trip to Arizona is officially a bust.

But at least there is champagne.

She blames the bubbly for falling into bed with Brody that night. Enemy or no, the billionaire is irresistible in a tux. But after their one-night tryst, Aria has no choice but to cut her vacation short, returning home to escape his devilish smile, vowing never to see Brody again.

Except Aria gets a surprise a few weeks later—she’s pregnant. When he learns that she’s carrying his child, Brody offers Aria the chance of a lifetime. The catch? She has to live under his roof until the baby is born.

Either they’ll kill each other in nine months. Or discover love buried beneath their hate.

MY REVIEW

“Maybe it was time to switch directions. To forge a beaten path. And find out if there was a rainbow waiting at the end of my forsaken trail.”

“She walked into your life and you struggled to remember what it had been like before you’d seen that first smile.”

Another fabulous addition to the Runaway Series by author Devney Perry.

Forsaken Trail follows the story of Aria and Brody. For Aria, it’s been far too long since she’s seen her twin sister Clara. She wants nothing more than to enjoy her time off with her sister and soak up time with her nephew. What she didn’t plan on was her nemesis, Brody being home. Before she knows it, she’s been talked into attending a wedding with Brody. Maybe it’s the champagne talking, but Aria is starting to see another side to her enemy. One thing leads to another and these two enemies spend an unforgettable night together. Who knew that one night had the power to turn their worlds upside down???

Forsaken Trail was everything I had hoped it would be and more. With each book in this series, I fall deeper and deeper in love with the characters, and Aria and Brody’s is just the latest to steal my heart. From the moment I met Brody and Aria, I just knew their story was going to knock me on my feet. The tension between them was delicious and led to some amazing banter. Honestly, their banter was the best foreplay ever! I couldn’t wait for them to put their differences aside and give in to what they both wanted.

The road to happily ever after was quite a bumpy one for Aria and Brody. You see, Aria’s past has made her fiercely independent, leaving her only to rely on herself. Her walls are sky-high, but if anyone is up to the task of breaking down those walls, it’s Brody. And Brody, he wasn’t what I expected at all. Sure he was rich, and privileged and never had to worry about anything, but there was so much more to him than meets the eye. When he lets you in, he goes all in. He cares hard and deeply for those who matter in his life. For Brody, Aria was a breath of fresh air who constantly gave him a run for his money. Together, this unlikely pair kept me glued to the pages and anxious to see how they would deal with the obstacles life threw at them.

Forsaken Trail is a fabulous read from beginning to end. The characters will capture your heart and completely suck you into their story. Aria and Brody’s story had the perfect mix of drama, angst, and romance and I just loved every second of it! Up next, is Clara’s story and I don’t know about you guys, but I can not wait to see what road her story will take us on…

Excerpt

The whirl of tires and the hum of an engine filled the air before she could answer. A shiny black Jaguar came down the driveway and my heart dropped.

No. That son of a bitch Brody Carmichael was going to ruin my vacation.

“He’s supposed to be gone.” If he dared encroach on my time with Clara, I’d sneak poison ivy into his bed.

“It’s not his fault.” Clara sighed, quick to defend her boss.

“Did his private plane not have enough spiced cashews for his liking? Surely he can afford jet fuel.”

The second-best part of this week, besides Clara and Gus, was Brody’s scheduled absence. Clara knew there was no love lost between me and her boss, so she’d suggested travel dates that coincided with his vacation.

Yet here he was, parking a car that likely cost more than all of my worldly possessions combined.

Brody parked behind the Cadillac and stepped out of his car, sliding the sunglasses off his face. He wore a navy suit tailored to perfection around his broad shoulders and long legs. In the years I’d known him, I’d never seen him in anything but a suit. Did he not own jeans?

“Brody!” August raced over, holding up a hand for a high five. “Aunt Aria is here. We’re gonna open my presents.”

“I see that.” Brody’s lips turned up in a smile. Barely.

If the man ever learned how to deliver one properly, actually show some teeth, he’d be devastating. Especially with the dark, trimmed beard he’d grown a few years ago. It gave him a sexy edge. Or it would have, if his perpetually sour mood wasn’t such a major turnoff.

He definitely, definitely didn’t turn me on. Oh no.

Broderick Carmichael was enemy number one.

Review: The Prophecy Trilogy by Victoria Jayne

Goodreads Series Link: https://www.goodreads.com/series/263569-the-prophecy-trilogy

Amazon Series Purchase Link: https://amzn.to/33j446c

Having a choice and having a good choice are two very different things…

The players of the prophecy are all in place. The vampire, the werewolf, and the witch. The fate of all paranormal beings hangs in the balance.

Too bad Divina, the witch in question, wants nothing to do with any of it.

She’s not about to let some ancient prophecy dictate who she’s going to love. She’ll be the master of her own destiny, thank you very much.

But the intense connection she feels to each of her sexy prophecy counterparts is making it difficult to avoid potential magical disaster.

And as everything continues to get more and more complicated, she’s starting to wonder—is she really the witch of the prophecy? Or is she something else entirely?

MY REVIEW

The Witch of the Prophecy is a fast-paced paranormal romance and is the first book in the Prophecy Trilogy. The Witch of the Prophecy really sets the scene and gives a great introduction to the characters. I think this series has a lot of potential and I’m looking forward to seeing how it will all come together in the end.

Rating: 3 Stars

Mistakes were made. Now it’s time to pay the price.

Werewolf Aric is losing his mind—literally. The incomplete mate bond with Divina is slowly killing him, and soon, it’ll become unbearable for her, too. He’s determined to do whatever it takes to make things right with his one true love.

Now all he has to do is find her.

But when his witch slips up and risks exposing the paranormal world to humans, Aric will need to do the unthinkable to save her and every other magical being on the planet.

He’ll have to work with the vampire of the prophecy, who just happens to be his mate’s ex.

Mistakes were made. He made them. And if the price of atonement is more than Aric’s able to pay?

Well, he’ll destroy that bridge when (and if) he gets to it…

MY REVIEW

This book picks up right where the last one left off and dives even deeper into the prophecy. I’m usually not a huge fan of love triangles, but this one worked rather well for me. I loved the push and pull, the angst of making the right decision. The characters had great chemistry and made it super hard for this reader to decide whom to root for. I’m looking forward to seeing what will happen with this prophecy and how everything will come together in the end.

A choice was made. Now it’s time to reap the rewards…or suffer the consequences…

It was all happening according to plan. Rori chose power over love, and as a result, put himself in the running to be the next emperor of all vampires. Then someone threatened to expose his witch (along with all other paranormal creatures) to humans…unless he gave up his claim to the throne, that is.

That’s when everything fell apart.

The Council has no idea what Rori did to keep Divina safe, and if they find out, the consequences will be deadly. It’ll take all his power, connections, and the help of his loyal guard to protect everyone and everything he holds dear.

But with time running out and enemies circling, can Rori survive long enough to complete the prophecy and maybe—just maybe—get a second chance at true love while he’s at it?

MY REVIEW

A fantastic ending to a really intriguing series. This book had lots of twists, turns, and moments I didn’t see coming. I really enjoyed the romance and paranormal elements. My only complaint is that I would have loved a little bit more from the ending. While it does wrap things up, it still felt a bit open-ended.

Overall I enjoyed this series and am glad to have checked it out!

4 Stars!

Release Blitz with Review: The Bookworm’s Guide to Faking It by Emma Hart

THE BOOKWORM’S GUIDE TO FAKING IT, an all-new, side-splittingly hilarious second chance romcom from New York Times bestselling author, Emma Hart is LIVE!!!

What I expected on Saturday morning: Books.
What I got on Saturday morning: my ex-best friend and first crush in front of me.

Let it be known that I, Holley Stuart, do not give a single rat’s behind about pro baseball’s star pitcher Sebastian Stone.
I definitely don’t care that he’s standing in my bookstore.
Nor do I care that he seems to have forgotten about the last time we saw each other—senior prom, when he both humiliated me and broke my heart, albeit unknowingly.
Now, he needs a date to his sister’s wedding.
Don’t ask me how I ended up being it, because I have no idea. But that’s the least of my problems.
His grandfather is adamant we’re dating, and Seb isn’t in a hurry to convince him otherwise, so I have no choice but to go along with it.
The problem? The only thing I’ve ever faked is… well, you know.
I’ve definitely never faked my feelings for someone.
And judging by the way I feel whenever Seb looks at me, it doesn’t look like I’m starting now.

MY REVIEW

“Why are you falling asleep while reading?” “Because ‘one more chapter’ turns into ten more chapters.” “It’s not that hard to stop after one more chapter.” “That’s the difference between you and I, Sebastian. You can stop reading. I cannot, therefore resulting in a severe lack of respect for the thing known as a good night’s sleep.”

The Bookworm’s Guide to Faking It is such a fun and entertaining read. No one and I mean no one can hold a grudge like Holley. You see, many years ago on prom night, Holley had her heart broken by Sebastian. And every time Sebastian tried to explain himself, Holley shut him out. Years later, fate has intervened and has thrown these two ex-best friends back into each other’s lives. And this time, Sebastian doesn’t plan to let Holley go without a fight….

The Bookworm’s Guide to Faking It pulled me into the story instantly. I loved Holley’s wit and I loved the way Sebastian challenged her. The banter between these two ex-besties was off the chart and left me begging for more. Seriously, the chemistry and tension between these two was explosive. I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next and if Holley would finally let Sebastian explain himself.

The Bookworm’s Guide to Faking It was everything that I wanted and needed in a romantic comedy from Emma Hart. The characters were fun, entertaining, and smartly written. Their story was captivating and left you wanting more. There was the perfect blend of humor, sass, and romance. All in all, this was the perfect read to spend your afternoon getting swept up in!

Release Blitz with Review: My Brother’s Roommate (Frisky Business #2) by Kendall Ryan

Release Blitz with Review: My Brother’s Roommate (Frisky Business #2) by Kendall Ryan

My Brother’s Roommate

By Kendall Ryan

Release Day: December 1, 2020

There are a few things you should know about my brother’s roommate.

Wolfie Cox is . . . complicated. Terminally sexy, and more importantly, he has an impressive stick lodged so far up his ass, he’s about as emotionally available as a chinchilla. Actually, that might be an insult to the chinchilla community.

So, naturally, I want to ride him like a bicycle.

He thinks I hate him. Mostly because I’ve led him to believe this. It’s easier than admitting the alternative.

And while Wolfie is about as soft and cuddly as a fork, I’m the opposite. A good girl. Reliable. Conscientious. Oh, and completely panicked about an upcoming work conference.

Wolfie’s usually allergic to altruism, so when my brother volun-tells him to help me out by escorting me to said conference where everyone else will have a plus-one . . . I say thanks, but no thanks. Surprisingly, Wolfie is unflinching about this. And that’s the story about how I got stuck in a hotel with my brother’s hot (grouchy) roommate.

Thank you for coming to my TED talk.

In all seriousness, this isn’t a game to me, and hormones aside, I need to impress my boss this week so the promotion I’ve worked hard for doesn’t get handed to his spineless nephew. But with Wolfie and me sharing a hotel bed, things get confusing quickly.

MY REVIEW

My Brother’s Roommate follows the story of Wolfie and Penelope. Wolfie is complicated with a capital C and when it comes to relationships, he always gets out before someone has a chance to disappoint him. However, there is more to Wolfie than meets the eye. Underneath his serious and complicated exterior is a man who just wants a woman to love and break through his carefully crafted walls. And Penelope may just be the woman for the job. When Penelope needed help with a plus one for a work weekend, she never saw Wolfie coming. Being her brother’s roommate, Wolfie should be 100% off-limits. Who knew that their weekend of fake dating would turn their both of their worlds upside down…

My Brother’s Roommate was a quick, yet enjoyable read for me. It was easy to get swept up in Penelope and Wolfie’s story. I loved how serious, yet sweet Wolfie was. And Penelope, she just had the biggest heart. She was so patient and understanding and certainly wasn’t afraid to go after what she wanted. Together, these two had some explosive chemistry that left me hanging on each and every word.

My Brother’s Roommate wasn’t all sunshine and roses. There definitely were some bumps along the way. Kudos to the author for handling those situations with patience and care. I enjoyed watching Penelope and Wolfie try to navigate and find their way to a happily ever after.

My Brother’s Roommate is filled with humor, sexy good times, serious moments, and is a great read to spend your day getting lost in. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and hope that you’ll enjoy it too!

Everett James Thompson

I’ve been in the spotlight since I was born, thanks to my famous parents. Reaper and Harmony have been the gold standard when it comes to celebrity love stories. It’s hard to be in that shadow, to live up to that precedent.

Which is why I stopped trying when my band, Grey Skies hit the big time.

But when I go to Vegas to support my Mom, in her new residency, I have absolutely no idea I’ll leave Vegas with a new pop-star wife.

Brianna Jenkins

As one of the top pop-stars in the world right now, I don’t have time for anything. Much less love, or even a night out.
When my best friend surprises me with tickets to the sold-out Harmony Stewart show in Vegas on my one off weekend of the month, I’m beyond excited. Especially when we find out our seats are next to her family . Harboring a crush on her oldest son added with a few more drinks than I normally have equals consequences neither one of us bargained for.

The next morning, I wake up no longer Brianna Jenkins, pop star.

I’m Brianna Jenkins, member of the new power couple, about to take the world by storm.

Whether we want to, or not.

MY REVIEW

Power Couple is the first book in the Nashvegas Series and it follows the story of EJ and Brianna. EJ’s parents are the gold standard, the ultimate couple. It’s because of them, that he is no stranger to the spotlight or living in their shadow. When EJ goes to Vegas to celebrate his parent’s new residency there, the last thing he dreamed was that he’d wind up getting married….Brianna is one of the hottest pop stars around and doesn’t have much time to just sit and enjoy life. And romance is definitely on the back burner. But, when Brianna is surprised with tickets to see her famous band, she’s about to get more than she ever bargained for….

If you’re a fan of the instalove trope, look no further, Power Couple is the book that you’ve been waiting for. This book combines not only my love for instant connections but also oops marriages. And let me tell you, EJ and Brianna rocked it. Their chemistry and connection were off the charts. Where most people would have found themselves panicked over an oops marriage, these two took it in stride and gave it a real go.

Overall, I think this series is off to a really good start. This story had just the right amount of steam, romance, and drama. I’m definitely intrigued and am looking to see where this story is going to go. This story kept me captivated from the moment I picked it up, until the moment I reached the end, and that ending left me dying to know how things will play out!

Review: Overdue by Miranda Elaine

Growing up, Griffin Thorne was the most annoying, adorable, and infuriating boy I’d ever met. I told myself I wanted nothing to do with him, but no matter how much I tried to hate him, that crazy boy somehow became my best friend.

As teenagers, we were inseparable. Despite the high school rumors, we never crossed any lines. Friends forever. That was our motto.

Griffin grew up to become a smoking hot firefighter and I got my dream job as the town librarian. Life was perfect. However, when tragedy strikes and we’re forced to move in together, our friendship is put to the biggest test yet.

Do I risk everything for the chance at an epic love? If I follow my heart, I could lose my best friend. But if it works, we could finally get our very own Happily Ever After.

MY REVIEW

“That’s all I ever wanted to do, take care and protect her like she’s the most precious thing in the world because to me she is.”

“You are my sunrise and my sunset.”

Overdue has to be hands down one of the cutest and sweetest friends to lovers romance that I’ve in a while. Griffin and Leni grew up together and at first couldn’t stand one another. But, as time grew on, the developed one of the greatest friendships. They were each other’s rock, their person, the one they spent the most time with. So, it was only natural that they would both develop deeper feelings for one another, but be afraid of pursuing it.

One of the things I loved about this story was just how genuine and true Griffin and Leni were. There was no beating around the bush, no crazy over the top drama. Just a sweet story of friends that were in love with one another, but too afraid to take the next step. From the moment you meet Leni and Griffin, it’s impossible to not get swept up in their story. Their chemistry just oozes off the pages and those will they/won’t they moments will leave you begging for more. I’m not usually a big fan of the slow burn, but when done right, I can’t get enough of it. And let me tell you, this author got the slow burn right!

Overdue is the kind of book that you will devour in a single sitting and that will leave you with a big smile on your face. This book is like sunshine on a cloudy day. It’s sweet. It’s romantic with the perfect amount of drama to balance things out. It’s got just the right amount of steam and spice and a slow burn that will leave you bursting with anticipation.

Overdue is my first book by Miranda Elaine, and it certainly won’t be my last. I can’t wait to check out more from this author in the future.
