Release Blitz with Review: The Bribe (Calamity Montana #1) by Willa Nash

The Bribe by Willa Nash is now live!

 

Duke Evans didn’t expect to interrupt a beautiful woman in a staring contest with a bison on his favorite hiking trail. He also didn’t expect to see her again after rescuing her from the surly beast. As the sheriff in Calamity, Montana, he’s had his fair share of surprises but none as pleasant as pulling over a shiny black car and finding his mysterious hiking companion behind the wheel.

Only, she lied to Duke. She gave him a name as fake as her hair color. According to her driver’s license, her real name is Lucy Ross, the famous country music singer whose sudden disappearance has been a hot topic in the media over the past two weeks.

He’s not sure why Lucy lied about her identity or why she’s in Calamity. And she’s not talking. Instead, she offers him a bribe to keep her secret.

But Duke doesn’t want her money. He wants to know why this woman is on the run. And as long as the star shines on his badge, he’s going to find out

MY REVIEW

The Bribe is the debut novel from author Willa Nash and it follows the story of Duke and Lucy.

When we first meet up with Lucy, she’s on the run from Tennessee. Lucy goes to Calamity, Montana with the hopes of laying low and putting her past behind her. What she didn’t plan on was the handsome sheriff named Duke. Duke knows there is more to Lucy than meets the eyes and wants nothing more than to figure out what her story is. The more time Duke and Lucy spend together, the hotter their chemistry burns. Will Duke and Lucy take a chance on love? Will Lucy’s past catch up to her before it’s too late? There’s only one way to find out….

The Bribe is a fantastic small-town romance read. It hits the ground running and holds a steady pace the entire time. From the moment I met Duke and Lucy, I couldn’t wait to find out more. Duke is the absolute sweetest guy who isn’t a stranger to small-town living. He knows how quickly gossip can spread and he takes his job seriously. He’s completely intrigued by Lucy and can’t fight the pull he feels towards her. He’ll do whatever it takes to keep Lucy safe…..Back home in Tennesse, Lucy is a famous singer. But, when tragedy strikes, Lucy finds herself on the run in search of a fresh start and hopefully some peace. There is so much more to Lucy than meets the eye and she makes for a strong female lead. She wasn’t looking for love when she came to Montana, but it appears fate had other plans for her.

The Bribe is an exciting small-town romance with the perfect blend of steam and mystery. The mystery surrounding this story kept me on my toes and left me dying to know more. I loved the romance and chemistry between Duke and Lucy. And the secondary characters added so much to the overall storyline.

I am completely invested in this series and can not wait to discover more of Calamity, Montana!

Review: Good Enough (Meet Me in Montana #3) by Kelly Elliott

Posted on

The third novel in New York Times bestselling author Kelly Elliott’s Meet Me in Montana series shows how family and true love can heal a broken past.

After her mother died in a car accident when she was only five, and her father was determined not to show any emotions toward his only daughter, Timberlynn longs for a normal family. What she hadn’t planned on was finding that family in Hamilton, Montana—thousands of miles away from everything she’s ever known in Atlanta, Georgia. She certainly didn’t plan on falling for Tanner Shaw. A handsome, charming, cowboy who swept her off her feet the moment he looked at her with eyes the color of the Montana sky.

Tanner Shaw was lost and confused…living a life without purpose, traveling between one city to the next. With a longing desire for something he could not quite pinpoint, he heads back to his hometown in Montana to spend Christmas with his family and clear his clouded head. One look at Timberlynn standing in his family’s kitchen, and his entire world is turned upside down. Or was it?

For once in his life, Tanner knew exactly what he wanted and was determined to prove to the only woman he had ever loved that what they shared was worth the risk. But winning Timberlynn Holden’s heart wasn’t going to be as easy as he thought. Can Tanner finally rope in the woman he loves, or will he be unable to help her mend her broken heart?

Good Enough is a stand-alone novel in the Meet Me in Montana series.

MY REVIEW

“Everything inside me screamed that this woman was the missing piece of my soul. That she was the one thing I had been longing for, and that I would gladly walk away from everything and anything simply to share the same air as her.”

“Doll, let me tell you something about the Shaw men. When they fall, they fall hard and they fall fast. And trust me when I say that the one who just walked out of here has fallen so freaking hard for you, that I think he might have gotten the breath knocked out of him. You didn’t mess anything up. He’ll come back around.”

Good Enough is the third book in the Meet Me in Montana Series and follows the story of Timberlynn and Tanner. This story starts off with one heck of a bang. Timberlynn has been living the life that was mapped out for her, but feels like something is missing. An ache has been in her heart ever since she returned from Montana for her cousin’s wedding. As fate would have it, Timberlynn is about to embark on a life-changing journey. Montana might have all of the answers she’s been looking for, including a potential romance…..

Good Enough had me hooked from the very first page. Timberlynn’s story is heartbreaking and is filled with lots of pain and rejection. No matter what she does in her life, she never feels like it’s good enough. She’s trying to live up to the dream that was put before her, but for once, Timberlynn has to do something for herself. Going to Montana might be just what she was looking for; a fresh start and a chance to live her dreams. What she didn’t plan on was Tanner. Tanner was the whole package and completely dangerous to her heart. If you believe the rumors, then you’d believe that Tanner is nothing but a playboy. However, there is more to this cowboy than meets the eyes. Tanner loves his job, but loves his family more. His heart yearns for a life in Montana and meeting Timberlynn knocks his world off its axis. For the first time in his life, Tanner sees his future so clearly and what he wants is Timberlynn….

The road to happily ever after for Tanner and Timberlynn wasn’t an easy one. Timberlynn’s past has shaped her and made her afraid to fall in love. But, if anyone can make Timberlynn take a chance, it’s Tanner. Tanner is a man who knows what he wants and isn’t afraid to go after it. He’s patient and has a huge heart. He puts the swoon in swoon-worthy. Together, these two could be a force to reckon with, they just have to be willing to take a chance and put their hearts on the line.

Once again, author Kelly Elliott has given us a romance that just steals your heart. I have fallen head over heels for the Shaw family and just love how devoted each and every one are to one another. Good Enough is filled with romance and steam and a little drama to boot. It’s filled with heartache and taking chances. Tanner and Timberlynn stole my heart and in the end, their story left me with a smile on my face. Good Enough was everything I was hoping it would be and I loved getting swept up in Timberlynn and Tanner’s story!

Review: The Bookworm’s Guide to Dating (The Bookworm’s Guide #1) by Emma Hart

Posted on

What I wanted for my birthday: Books.

What I got for my birthday: my brother’s best friend playing matchmaker.

Let it be known that I, Kinsley Lane, am one hundred percent against being set up with somebody.

And I’m one thousand percent sure that Josh Carter is not the man to find me a boyfriend.

I mean, if I’m so great, why isn’t he the one dating me? (For the record, I don’t know the answer. That’s just what the guy on the internet asked.)

Still, I’ll humor him. If I go on his little dates, he’ll teach my bookish, introverted self how not to be totally, completely, utterly, unforgivably awkward on every single one of them.

And all I have to do is fall in love with one of the lovely gentlemen he’s serving up for me on a silver platter—all of whom fit my very specific guidelines.

Simple, right?

It would be.

If only I could stop falling for Josh.

MY REVIEW

The Bookworm’s Guide to Dating follows the story of Kinsley and Josh. Kinsely is the ultimate bookworm. She’s addicted to the written word and wants nothing more for her birthday than books. However, Kinsley got more than she bargained for. The last thing she wanted was for her brother’s best friend to try and set her up. In spite of everything, Kinsley finds herself going along with Josh’s plan. Seems simple enough. Too bad Kinsley ended up falling for Josh instead….

Overall, I thought that this was a really cute book. Kinsley could be my soul sister. She’s an introvert who is completely addicted to books. However, when it comes to real-life romance, she’s a complete wreck. So, when Josh offers to help Kinsely find Mr. Right, she can’t help but jump at the offer. Unbeknownst to Kinsley, Josh has had a crush on her for the longest time and never acted on it because Kinsley’s brother is his best friend. The last thing he really wants to do is set Kinsley up with another man, but maybe, just maybe this might be what Josh needs to finally get over the woman he can’t have.

The Bookworm’s Guide to Dating is a fun and entertaining read. The characters are real and easy to connect with. Josh and Kinsley’s romance is the ultimate slow burn that will leave you begging for more. Their story has the perfect balance of romance, drama, humor, and sexy good times.

When it comes to romantic comedies, Emma Hart never disappoints. This story is filled with her signature heart and humor. Josh and Kinsley’s story stole my heart and I had the best time getting lost in their story.

Review: All Scot and Bothered (Devil You Know #2) by Kerrigan Byrne

They are a dangerous duke, a fierce lord, and an infamous earl—dark, bold, brave men who know exactly what they want. And there is only one woman who can bring them to their knees…

He is first and foremost—at everything. A man who’s made his own way in the world through ruthless cunning and sheer force of will. A strong and imposing Scot who can turn on the charm but does not suffer fools. His title: Lord Chief Justice of the High Court. His name: Cassius Gerard Ramsay. His mission: To investigate the goings-on at London’s most notorious gaming hell, owned and operated by one of the most intriguing and desirable women he’s ever met.

IN THIS GAME OF LOVE, THE RULES DO NOT APPLY

Cecelia Teague was an orphan facing a rather dire future—until a secret benefactor from her mother’s scandalous past swept into her life. Sent to prestigious boarding school and later to university, Cecelia believed high society was at her fingertips…Then, from out of nowhere, she became the inheritor of a gambling establishment. Now Cecelia must live two lives: one as a proper lady who finds herself undeniably drawn to Lord Ramsay and the other as a savvy gaming hell owner trying to save her business from the very same man. He has no idea she is both women…and Cecelia would like to keep it that way. But what happens when consuming passion and escalating danger threaten to reveal the truth?

MY REVIEW

All Scot and Bothered is the second book in the Devil You Know Series and it follows the story of Cecilia and Ramsay. Ramsay is known for his ruthless cunning. He can turn on the charm at a moment’s notice and likes to be number one in all things. As the Chief Justice of the High Court, he never expected that his next mission would turn his world upside down….Cecilia’s life has been anything but easy. Her future looked dire until a secret benefactor came into the picture. Suddenly Cecilia finds herself in a life she never expected. She’s is forced to live two lives: one as a proper, respectable lady, and the other as the owner of a gaming establishment. She’s intrigued by Lord Ramsay but doesn’t know how long she keeps up with her two lives. Only time will tell what will happen when truths and secrets are revealed…

Overall, I thought this was an enjoyable read. I will be the first to admit that it did take me some time to get into the plot, but once I did, I was hooked. The plot of this story is complex and has a lot of moving pieces. I really enjoyed Cecilia and Ramsay together. They were total opposites and rocked the perfect enemies to lovers’ vibe. They kept me intrigued and coming back for more. I wasn’t sure if I was going to love Ramsay, but what can I say, I have a thing for the “anti” hero of the story.

All Scot and Bothered thrilled me and intrigued me. This story was everything I was looking for and had just the right amount of danger and romance with some delicious angst and twists that I didn’t see coming. The only complaint I have about this story is that I found the ending somewhat lacking. It felt a bit abrupt and wishing that we were given just a little more.

When it’s all said and done, All Scot and Bothered was a terrific read to spend my evening getting swept up in. I easily finished this book in a single sitting and I look forward to seeing what adventure lies ahead for us readers in the next book!

Review: Desiring the Dancer (The Risqué Series #1) by Lilly Avalon

Carlie Coleman is not looking forward to her stepsister’s bachelorette party.

It was supposed to be a simple affair with a small group of Valerie’s closest friends at their parents’ beach house. Instead, the guests have tripled, there’s a fancy caterer, and at some point there will be strippers.

It’s going to be a disaster… until she meets the cute waiter.

Aiden Carter is sweet and she’s smitten. They can’t stop staring at each other from across the room. Their mutual attraction is undeniable. Before the night is over, she discovers something else.

The cute waiter is also the entertainment.

MY REVIEW

If you’re looking for a short, hot, and sexy read, then look no further, Desiring The Dancer is just the read you’ve been waiting for.

Desiring The Dancer might be a super quick read, but don’t let that fool you. This book hits all the marks and even has time for a little drama. Desiring The Dancer follows the story of Carlie and Aiden. Carlie is at her stepsister’s bachelorette party and hits it off with one of the waiters. Their chemistry and connection is instant, and boy is Carlie in for a surprise when she finds out that Aiden is the entertainment for the night. Carlie and Aiden may not have met in the most conventional way, but fate has a funny way of throwing people together…

Desiring The Dancer is a fast-paced novella. I enjoyed Carlie and Aiden together. I thought the two of them had great chemistry and I loved the little bit of drama that was added to their story. While their story truly was a quick one, I think it satisfied all the marks and delivered a sexy, yet quick read. All in all, this was a quick and easy read, one you can definitely finish in about an hour or so, and I had a fun time getting swept up in this little novella.

Review: Swing and a Mishap (Summersweet Island #2) by Tara Sivec

“Hawks fans still in shock after centerfielder, Shepherd Oliver, sustained season-ending injury last night in the 5th inning of the playoffs against Chicago.”

Two years ago, I was a pretty big deal. I thought I had it all, until a blast from my past popped up on my social media feed, keeping my ego in check and reminding me how basic I am. Except sassy Wren Bennett isn’t just a blast from my past. She’s the only woman I ever saw a future with.

Even though my soul leaves my body every time she says she hates baseball and has never watched me play, a year’s-worth of messages filled with laughter and sarcasm only remind me how amazing my “pen pal” is. Unfortunately, it doesn’t matter how fine I look in a pair of baseball pants; I’m still 3,000 miles away, and she’s taken… or so I thought. Maybe I should have thought a little harder before I dropped her like a seeing-eye single into the outfield.

When an injury has me questioning everything about my life, I can only think of one place I need to go and one person I need to see. Home, to Summersweet Island, to get back my “pen pal.”

Now I just need to make sure single mom Wren knows I didn’t come back for a change, and I didn’t come back for a job. I’m swinging for the fences, and I’m finally coming home to make her mine. If only she’d stop insulting me and stay in one place long enough for me to tell her. She wouldn’t try to drown me with a tub of ice cream, right?

I’m sure it’ll be fine.

MY REVIEW

Swing and a Mishap is the second book in the Summersweet Island Series and it follows the story of Shepherd and Wren. When it comes to baseball, Shepherd was a pretty big deal. He thought he had it all until a blast from the past gave him a glimpse of something he never knew he wanted. Wren and Shephard had the most amazing conversations and chemistry that was off the charts. The only problem, Wren was 3000 miles away. When Shepherd experiences a game changing injury, it makes him make the biggest mistake of his life. He cut off all ties to the woman he wanted. Now, a year later, Shepherd is ready to take back what he wants in his life and the first stop is winning the girl. Will Wren be able to forgive and forget? There’s only one way to find out….

Overall, I thought this book was a really enjoyable read. The plot was fun and entertaining. I thought Wren was a total riot. I loved her sarcasm and snark. She wasn’t afraid to be herself and I loved the confidence she gained by being around Shepherd. He brought out the fire in her and I couldn’t wait to see what would come of it. And then we’ve got Shepherd. Poor Shepherd. He put his foot in his mouth more times than I can count. But when he messes up, he owns up to it and will do whatever it takes to make it right. Shepherd is the definition of swoon and boy does he ever pull out the big guns to win Wren over. Together these two characters were a lot of fun. I loved their banter and the overall ease of their relationship. Their chemistry was explosive and I loved the Shepherd was with Wren.

Swing and a Mishap was fun and left me with a big smile on my face. This book made me laugh and swoon all at the same time and it had just the right amount of drama to shake things up. If you’re looking for a fun romantic comedy, then look no further, Swing and a Mishap is just the book you’re looking for. I hope you’ll give this book a try and fall head over heels for the characters as I have!

BLURB:

I’ve fallen victim to a heinous act.

An act so vile, so downright dirty, that I’m not sure as a twenty-year-old man I’ll ever recover. Brace yourself, because what I’m about to tell you might have you gasping in secondhand horror.

Ready? Here it goes . . .

I’ve recently become the pawn of a meddling mom.

Yes . . . A MEDDLING MOM–who’s been trying to set me up all summer.

Now, I understand it’s not a crime for a mother to want her child to fall in love, but when she makes it her relentless MISSION, the heinous act should be classified as a misdemeanor at least.

Of course, my mom, the evil matriarch in the devil’s leggings, made her final stab at finding a girl for me days before I went back to college.

And I hate to admit it, but she saved a doozy for last.

A titan in black skinny jeans.

A boss of nonchalance.

And a girl who would not only turn my life upside down, but do it while juggling a soccer ball, looking effortlessly gorgeous around campus, and is one hundred percent against relationships. Of any sort.

Thanks, Mom.

TheSetup_teaser-9

PROLOGUE:

**LINCOLN**

I’ve fallen victim to a heinous act.

An act so vile, so downright dirty, that I’m not sure . . .

as a son,

as a member of society,

as a twenty-year-old man . . . I will ever recover.

Ever.

I see the concern in your eyes, your hand wandering up your chest to clutch the collar of your sensible cotton shirt, scared to find out the truth.

Brace yourself against something sturdy, because what I’m about to tell you might just knock you back on your ass in horror.

*Deep breaths, everyone*

I’ve recently become the pawn of a meddling mom.

Yup, you read that right. A MEDDLING mom.

The bane of a son’s existence.

I know what you’re wondering . . . what did she do? Make me pick up my socks during summer break?

*Eye-rolling*

*Woe is you*

*Grow up*

You grow up!

Ehhh, that was a little harsh. But before you go and put your judgy face on, you need to know the difference between a nagging mom and a meddling mom.

A nagging mom is one who storms into the living room while you’re trying to watch the series finale of Game of Thrones, complaining about the dishes in the sink you swore you’d take care of once you found out who took the throne.

Nag, nag, nag—part of the daily routine of the person who birthed you, or in this case, one of two moms who adopted me.

But a meddling mom, oh boy. They’re a fresh kind of hell wrapped up in high-waisted leggings and muted tunics. This isn’t some everyday mom who texts you GIFs of squirrels playing with a hula hoop. Nope, meddling moms have an agenda.

An agenda that they believe benefits their children. But it really benefits them . . . and only them.

In this case, my mom’s agenda: get Lincoln to fall in love.

I understand it’s not a crime for a mother to want her child to fall in love, but let me tell you. When she makes it her mission when you’re home from college, it should be classified as a misdemeanor.

That’s right, all freaking summer, my mom has made it her duty to set me up with girl after girl, all of whom she’s met in our hometown Kalamazoo, Michigan. I’d like to say I’m exaggerating that she made a list and set me up with every eligible girl—one by one—but I’m not.

I saw the Excel spreadsheet on her computer.

Girls who were highlighted in red were a no-go.

Girls in green still had a fighting chance.

Girls in yellow? Apparently, I had lukewarm interaction with them, but they showed promise.

Why is she so desperate for me to fall head over heels?

Can you believe she’s been spending time on the Internet, researching relationship statuses of major league baseball players? Well, she has. Too much time. And she said she didn’t want me to end up forty, about to retire, with nothing to say for my life other than that I was able to throw a ball off a mound.

She also wants a girl to fawn over.

When my mothers were adopting, Mom hoped for a girl, but Mama hoped for a boy. Don’t get me wrong, my mom loves me more than anything—hence the meddling and nagging—but she always wanted to do girly things with me, like have tea parties, get our toenails done, shit like that.

Side note: I’ve done the pedicure thing with her, and it’s not that bad.

But she wants a daughter, and apparently, a daughter-in-law is the next best thing.

Which brings me back to my summer of “not love.” I wanted nothing to do with these girls and after my mom’s eighth attempt to set me up—yes, eight—I told her enough was enough. I was done.

And thankfully she listened . . . until the last Saturday before I left for school.

The evil matriarch in the devil’s leggings made her final stab at finding a girl for me.

And I hate to admit it, but she saved a doozy for last.

A fucking titan in black skinny jeans.

A boss of nonchalance.

And a girl who will not only turn my life upside down, but do it while juggling a soccer ball, looking effortlessly gorgeous, and is one hundred percent against relationships. Of any sort.

Thanks, Mom.

*Thumbs up*

Your meddling has made me absolutely miserable.

MY REVIEW

The Setup is a laugh out loud, entertaining romance.

The Setup follows the story of Lincoln and Indie. From the moment I met Lincoln and his moms, I was in love. Not only did Lincoln have an unbelievable bond with his moms, but I just loved his moms meddlesome ways. They just wanted their boy to be happy and the lengths they went through to find him happiness just brought a smile to my face. In the end, all of the meddlings worked because if it wasn’t for Lincoln’s mom, Lincoln would have never met Indie….

Some things you should know about Lincoln. He’s a terrific athlete. He’s a great friend. He’s loyal and supportive. Definitely, someone, you’d want in your corner. And then we have Indie, who is also an athlete. So, she gets Lincoln and understands the pressures of the game. She’s guarded when it comes to letting people get close. But, if she lets you in, you’re golden. For Lincoln, meeting Indie was a complete game-changer. Their relationship was the true definition of SLOW BURN. I loved how simple things were and how these two just fit. Their friendship was one for the books. They were each other’s person. But, deep down, their friendship was always destined to be more. The chemistry and passion between these two just sizzled. The closer they got, the more they were going to burn. I thought I was going to die waiting for these two to take the next step, but all that waiting just made it sweeter.

While I love Indie and Lincoln together, there was one thing that really bothered me. Indie and Lincoln’s story experiences quite the time jump towards the last 15-20% of the book and I just HATED it! They were separated for soooooooo long!! Their lives took them in different directions, but they tried to hold on to their “friendship”. There was some conflict towards the end that just killed me. I hated it. I wish I wish, I wish I could go into more detail, but since I can’t you’re just going to have to pick up this book for yourself to see what I’m talking about. My only other complaint was the ending. It felt so rushed and after everything that Lincoln and Indie went through, I wanted, no needed more.

The Setup was an entertaining and captivating read. I was glued to the pages and couldn’t wait to see how Indie and Lincoln’s story would play out. Yes, there were some moments that made me absolutely batty and left me wishing for more, but even with all of that, I loved every second of their journey. This book made laugh and swoon and it frustrated the heck out of me. And for me, that makes it one heck of an enjoyable read! I had a lot of fun getting swept up in The Setup and can’t wait to see what this author has in store for us readers next.

Review: Penthouse Prince by Kendall Ryan

Penthouse Prince By Kendall Ryan

Release Day: September 1, 2020

A delicious new single dad standalone romance from New York Times bestseller Kendall Ryan!

Lexington Dane was my brother’s best friend growing up.

We did everything together.

He taught me how to throw a punch, how to change a tire…and he taught me how to kiss. I fell hard and fast, and gave him all my firsts.

I promised I’d wait for him…

But I’m done waiting, because he went off to college and never came back. He took his fancy business degree and moved to New York City, where he promptly became a real estate mogul—turning every penthouse and apartment project he touched into gold.

It’s been ten years, and now he’s back and needs a favor…someone to watch his little girl. That’s right, the cocky penthouse prince and heartbreaker extraordinaire Lexington is back with an adorable two-year-old daughter. Guess who he wants to watch her?

I’ve never been able to say no to him. I might agree to be the nanny for his precious little angel, but there’s no way in hell I’m falling for her hot-as-sin daddy.

MY REVIEW

Penthouse Prince follows the story of Lex and Corrigan. Growing up, Lex was best friends with Corrigan’s brother. That friendship made the three of them inseparable. Lex was everything to Corrigan and one day their friendship blossomed into more. Everything was going fine, until one action changed everything. Lex went off to college and never looked back. It will be 10 years before Corrigan and Lex will be reunited. Lex has moved back home, but he needs a pretty big favor. You see, Lex didn’t come home by himself. He’s got a sweet little girl with her, that needs a nanny. Her mind wants to say no, but her heart has other plans in mind. Will Lex and Corrigan be able to move past their history? Will Lex get a second chance with the one who got away?? There’s only one way to find out…..

Penthouse Prince is a fun and refreshing second chance romance. I fell in love with Lex immediately. He was a hardworking dad, who would do anything for his little girl, Grier. He didn’t always make the best choices, but his heart was in the right place and he would do anything to right a wrong. And Corrigan was just the right person for Lex and little Grier. Corrigan guarded her heart and didn’t make things super easy for Lex. But, in the end, these two had a chemistry that was impossible to ignore and a love that was worth fighting for.

Penthouse Prince is a sweet second chance romance. The characters pull you into their story from the very first page. Lex and Corrigan’s story is one of young love and making tough decisions, even if they break your own heart. It is a story of fate and goodness in unexpected circumstances. It’s a story filled with some serious moments, but for the most part, is drama free. In the end, it’s a story that just makes you feel good and will leave you with a smile on your face.

Review: The Wedding Date Disaster by Avery Flynn

Posted on

Hadley Donavan can’t believe she has to go home to Nebraska for her sister’s wedding. She’s gonna need a wingman and a whole lot of vodka for this level of family interaction. At least her bestie agreed he’d man up and help. But then instead of her best friend, his evil twin strolls out of the airport.

If you looked up doesn’t-deserve-to-be-that-confident, way-too-hot-for-his-own-good billionaire in the dictionary, you’d find a picture of Will Holt. He’s awful. Horrible. The worst―even if his butt looks phenomenal in those jeans.

Ten times worse? Hadley’s buffer was supposed to be there to keep her away from the million and one family events. But Satan’s spawn just grins and signs them up for every. Single. Thing.

Fine. “Cutthroat” Scrabble? She’s in. She can’t wait to take this guy down a notch. But somewhere between Pictionary and the teasing glint in his eyes, their bickering starts to feel like more than just a game…

MY REVIEW

The Wedding Date Disaster is a refreshing and fun take on the enemies to lovers / fake relationship troupe. This is my first book by this author and it certainly won’t be my last!

The Wedding Date Disaster follow the story of Hadley and Will. Will thinks he knows what kind of girl his brother’s best friend, but he couldn’t be further from the truth. His assumptions are way off base, but try telling an alpha type that he’s wrong! He won’t believe you. Will tries to get his brother Web to see the light, but Web isn’t having and neither is fate. You see, Web is supposed to accompany Hadley to her sister’s wedding back home in Nebraska. Only, Web ends up really sick, so Will takes his place. Now, Hadley and Will are stuck pretending they are a couple and trying desperately to not kill each other. But you know what they say, those who fight the most have the greatest passion. The passion and tension between Hadley and Will is off the charts. Will these two give into their unexpected feelings or will Will’s assumptions come back to bite him? There’s only one way to find out….

Overall, I thought this book was a really fun read. I found the author’s take on this troupe to be fun and refreshing. Enemies to Lovers and Fake Relationships are my jam! And I couldn’t get enough of this one. I mean, Will and Hadley had tension in spades. Their chemistry burning off the pages. I will be the first to admit that Will drove me a little crazy with his hangups on Hadley, and I for one could not wait for him to get his head out of his butt. His heart was in the right place, and had been burned in the past. Hadley was easy to relate to. She loves her family even though they make her crazy. I loved seeing Hadley come into her true self and not be afraid to be the person she was always meant to be.

The Wedding Date Disaster is the kind of book that you can easily read in a single sitting. The characters and supporting cast are fun and entertaining. This book more than delivered in the enemies to lovers story line. I loved the drama and pull. I loved the angst and family moments. In the end, this book hit all the marks I was looking for and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Hadley and Will’s story come full circle.

Review: Hidden (The Texas Murder Files #1) by Lauren Griffin

Posted on

When a woman is found brutally murdered on Austin’s lakeside hike-and-bike trail, investigative reporter Bailey Rhoads turns up on the scene demanding access and answers. She tries to pry information out of the lead detective, Jacob Merritt. But this case is unlike any he’s ever seen, and nothing adds up.

Bailey has a hunch the victim wasn’t who she claimed to be and believes this mugging-turned-murder could have been a targeted hit. When she digs deeper, the trail leads her to a high-tech fortress on the outskirts of Austin where researchers are pushing the boundaries of a cutting-edge technology that could be deadly in the wrong hands.

As a ruthless hit man’s mission becomes clear, Bailey and Jacob must embark on a desperate search to locate the next target before the clock ticks down on this lethal game of hide and seek.

MY REVIEW

Hidden is an exciting and fast paced thriller that is sure to keep readers on their toes….

One of the first things that drew me into this book was the cover. It was absolutely stunning. I loved the colors and style. I certainly wanted to find out more. Hidden is my first book by Laura Griffin and it most certainly won’t be my last.

Hidden follows the story of Bailey and Jacob. From the moment I picked up this book, I was completely and totally sucked in. I was pretty annoyed that I had things to do and couldn’t sit and devour this book like I had wanted. That being said, I took advantage of every free minute I had and couldn’t help but get lost in this story.

Bailey is an investigative reporter, who turns up at a crime scene looking for answers. She looks to the lead detective Jacob, hoping that he can shine some light on the case. However, this murder is unlike anything he’s dealt with before. Bailey isn’t afraid to follow her instincts to uncover the truth, even if that means putting herself in harms way. In the end, Jacob and Bailey find themselves searching for a ruthless killer. Will they find their suspect before it’s too late??? There’s only one way to find out…

Hidden was a fantastic read from beginning to end. I loved the mystery and suspense of the story. There was never a dull moment and I was kept on the edge of my seat. The game of cat and mouse kept me totally engrossed in this story and I couldn’t wait to see how all the pieces would come together in the end. I really enjoyed the chemistry and romantic moments between Bailey and Jacob. I think it added a lot to the story and gave some much needed relief to the suspenseful plot.

All in all, I’m glad to have checked this book out. It had my heart racing the entire time and I’m excited to check more out from this author in the future.
