Release Blitz with Review: The Bully by Willa Nash

The Bully by Willa Nash is now live!

Nellie Rivera is trading traffic for tranquility. When the quiet streets of small-town Montana beckon, she leaves Denver behind and moves to Calamity. It would be the perfect adventure if not for Cal Stark.

When her archnemesis dares to show his face one Saturday morning, declaring he is moving there too, she vows to make his life a misery. The town isn’t big enough for the both of them and besides . . .

She was here first.

Cal has been a thorn in her side since high school. He might have bullied her back then, but she’s not a modest teenager anymore and has learned a few plays of her own. If all goes to plan, she’ll run the former pro quarterback out of town within a month.

There’s only one problem. Cal has the same plan. He wants Calamity bad enough to pull out all the stops. And after one kiss, she realizes that he doesn’t play fair.

MY REVIEW

“This was us. Push and pull. Cold or hot. Off to on. We were magnets, one flip and we’d repulse each other. But turned the other way, there was no ripping us apart.”

“He looked like a man who needed to sleep for a decade but had been waiting to find the right place to rest and had finally found it in my bed. He looked like he belonged there.”

“Life’s not about what most people think. Life’s about finding the right people. The ones who will take you at your worst, so you can give them your best.”

Talk about push and pull! Cal and Nellie had it in spades. They hated each other, but boy did they want each other! You see, Cal and Nellie have been at odds since she was 14. They say time heals all wounds, but for Nellie, Cal is just a thorn in her side that won’t go away. Nellie can’t seem to escape Cal no matter how hard she tries and when Cal blows into Calamity, Montana, it turns Nellie’s world upside down.

I absolutely adored Cal and Nellie. I was invested in the two of them right from the start. Cal and Nellie had me all twisted up in knots and begging for more at the same time. The banter and chemistry between them was off the charts and just oozed off of the pages. That being said, the road to happily ever after wasn’t an easy one, but watching Cal and Nellie navigate their way through all the ups and downs, and mistakes of the past was everything this reader could hope for.

To say Cal and Nellie are complicated is a complete understatement. Cal and Nellie are the kind of couple that will drive you crazy one minute and rooting for them the next.

The Bully is a terrific addition to the Calamity Montana Series and I couldn’t help but fall head over heels for this small-town, enemies to lovers romance. Willa Nash definitely knocked it out of the park with this one!

THE SCORE KEEPER

Gina Azzi

Release Date: March 3

Boston Hawks owner Scott Reland is my father’s biggest rival and the last man who should catch my eye. But when he does, I don’t look away.

We’ve circled each other for years, two outliers in a small club of NHL owners. We know the rules, manage similar pressures, and understand that this lifestyle — hockey over everything — isn’t for everyone.

Which is why I want out.

To prove to my father that I have a future beyond the New York Sharks, I score one for me and open a bakery in Boston, the city that reveres Scott.

It isn’t long until the dynamic and perceptive Hawk pursues me. And I’m entirely unprepared to be swept off my feet, cared for and supported after so many years on my own. Scott easily draws me back into the hockey life I thought I didn’t want.

But can our relationship survive the demands of this industry? Or will I always be keeping score, second to the game that dictates everything?

MY REVIEW

The Score Keeper is the ninth book in the Boston Hawks Series, but it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel.

The Score Keeper follows the story of Scott and Noelle. For years, life kept throwing Scott and Noelle together. But, Scott being Noelle’s dad’s number one competitor could only mean trouble. Despite the trouble a relationship between the two could cause, a passion like theirs is too hot to ignite….

Overall, I found this book to be a quick and enjoyable read. I enjoyed the ease of Scott and Noelle’s relationship. Neither one of them was really looking for a relationship, but when you have chemistry like these two do, you can’t help but explore it.

Despite being Noelle’s father’s rival, Scott is a real standup guy. He’s older, more mature, and isn’t afraid of going after what he wants. When he’s into something, he gives it 110% of his support. And then we have Noelle. Noelle is desperately trying to make it on her own. She loves her father but doesn’t want to be a part of his world. She wants to pursue her own passions.

The road to happily ever wasn’t an easy one for Scott and Noelle. They had not only their careers to figure out, but also the obstacle of Noelle’s father. Seeing these two try to work together and overcome their issues had me rooting for them to find their way towards a happily ever after.

The Score Keeper is a fun and sexy sports romance. The characters are easy to relate to and root for. I was invested from the first page and was excited to see how everything would come together in the end. All in all, this was a great book to spend my day getting swept up in.

Review: Edgewood by Kristen Ciccarelli

Review: Edgewood by Kristen Ciccarelli

Can love survive the dark?

No matter how far she runs, the forest of Edgewood always comes for Emeline Lark. The scent of damp earth curls into her nose when she sings and moss creeps across the stage. It’s as if the woods of her childhood, shrouded in folklore and tall tales, are trying to reclaim her. But Emeline has no patience for silly superstitions.

When her grandfather disappears, leaving only a mysterious orb in his wake, the stories Emeline has always scoffed at suddenly seem less foolish. She enters the forest she has spent years trying to escape, only to have Hawthorne Fell, a handsome and brooding tithe collector, try to dissuade her from searching.

Refusing to be deterred, Emeline finds herself drawn to the court of the fabled Wood King himself. She makes a deal—her voice for her grandfather’s freedom. Little does she know, she’s stumbled into the middle of a curse much bigger than herself, one that threatens the existence of this eerie world she’s trapped in, along with the devastating boy who feels so familiar.

With the help of Hawthorne—an enemy turned reluctant ally who she grows closer to each day—Emeline sets out to not only save her grandfather’s life, but to right past wrongs, and in the process, discover her true voice.

Haunting and romantic, Kristen Ciccarelli’s Edgewood is an exciting novel from a bold, unforgettable voice in fantasy.

MY REVIEW

Edgewood is a truly unique young adult, fantasy novel.

Edgewood is a well-written and intriguing story that spins quite the web of mystery. I enjoyed the mysterious woods and all of the secrets they held. I loved trying to figure out who you could trust or not. This book does dive into some pretty tough issues such as memory loss and I think the author did a really great job with the way she not only handled them, but the creative spin she put on them.

My only complaint about this book is that I wish the pacing had been a little more on point. There were some parts where the story seemed to drag a bit. And I do wish that the romance between Emeline and Hawthorne had been fleshed out a little more. Yes, their romance was definitely a slow-burning one, but they really left me wanting more.

Even though I did have a couple of issues with this book, I did find it to be an enjoyable read. I really liked all of the fantasy elements and the world this author created. I thought the author was really creative with the way the tough issues were handled.

This is my first book by this author and I would definitely be interested in checking out more from her in the future.

MY REVIEW

Only One Love follows the story of Franny and Wilson. Wilson is known as the bad boy both on and off the ice. That reputation suited him just fine until Franny came into the picture. Franny turned his world upside down and made him want to be a better man. Falling for Wilson was the last thing on Franny’s radar, but somehow, Wilson made his way under her skin, making her want things she never dreamed. When scandal hits, Franny and Wilson will be tested in ways they never imagined…

I fell head over heels for Franny and Wilson from the moment I met them. I loved Franny’s fiery personality. She was a woman who knew what she wanted and wasn’t afraid to go after it. I couldn’t imagine a better match for Wilson. Wilson had the worst reputation and attitude to go along with it. The last thing he was looking for was love or a relationship. Wilson didn’t really know what he was missing in his life until Franny came into the picture. Together, these two were the ultimate match. Franny brought out the swoon-worthy alpha in Wilson. Not only did they two burn up the pages together, but the way they supported one other and had the other’s back…Ugh! I couldn’t get enough!

Now, no good love story is without its share of drama. Franny and Wilson’s love was definitely put to the test. I really enjoyed watching them navigate their way from scandal to happily ever after. If ever there was a couple that had me rooting for them, it was Franny and Wilson.

Only One Love is the seventh book in the Only One Series but can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel. That being said, as someone who has been a fan of this series, I really enjoyed spending time with all the familiar faces and seeing all of their stories intertwine.

If you’re looking for a swoon-worthy and sexy read to spend your day curled up with, you won’t want to miss Only One Love.

When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…

Review: Hook, Line, and Sinker by Tessa Bailey

Review: Hook, Line, and Sinker by Tessa Bailey

King crab fisherman Fox Thornton has a reputation as a sexy, carefree flirt. Everyone knows he’s a guaranteed good time–in bed and out–and that’s exactly how he prefers it. Until he meets Hannah Bellinger. She’s immune to his charm and looks, but she seems to enjoy his… personality? And wants to be friends? Bizarre. But he likes her too much to risk a fling, so platonic pals it is.

Now, Hannah’s in town for work, crashing in Fox’s spare bedroom. She knows he’s a notorious ladies’ man, but they’re definitely just friends. In fact, she’s nursing a hopeless crush on a colleague and Fox is just the person to help with her lackluster love life. Armed with a few tips from Westport’s resident Casanova, Hannah sets out to catch her coworker’s eye… yet the more time she spends with Fox, the more she wants him instead. As the line between friendship and flirtation begins to blur, Hannah can’t deny she loves everything about Fox, but she refuses to be another notch on his bedpost.

Living with his best friend should have been easy. Except now she’s walking around in a towel, sleeping right across the hall, and Fox is fantasizing about waking up next to her for the rest of his life and… and… man overboard! He’s fallen for her, hook, line, and sinker. Helping her flirt with another guy is pure torture, but maybe if Fox can tackle his inner demons and show Hannah he’s all in, she’ll choose him instead?

In the follow-up to It Happened One Summer, Tessa Bailey delivers another deliciously fun rom-com about a former player who accidentally falls for his best friend while trying to help her land a different man…

MY REVIEW

Hook, Line, and Sinker is the much-anticipated follow-up to It Happened One Summer and is a must-read romantic comedy.

Hook, Line, and Sinker follows the story of Hannah and Fox. Fox is a man with a reputation and is known for giving the ladies a good time. But when Fox meets Hannah, all bets are off. Hannah isn’t falling for his charm or antics. For the first time in Fox’s life, a woman wants to be just friends. However the more time these two spend together, the more the lines of friendship start to blur…

Hook, Line, and Sinker was everything I was hoping it would be and then some. I loved the slow-burning romance between Hannah and Fox. These two were amazing friends and had an undeniable connection. Fox could charm the pants off of anyone, but Hannah refused to just be another notch on his bedpost. I really loved watching these two grow from friendship to more. I loved how much faith Hannah had in Fox, the way she built up his confidence, and showed him that even a player deserves more.

Hook, Line, and Sinker is a smartly written and entertaining romantic comedy. I loved being back in Westport and catching up with Piper and Brendan. Hannah and Fox’s story had me hooked from the first page and had me devouring their story in just a few short hours.

In the end, all that’s left to say is that I loved and adored this book. It checked off all of my boxes and was just the romantic comedy I was hoping it would be. Hook, Line, and Sinker is the perfect book to spend your day getting lost in. I hope you will fall head over heels for Hannah and Fox just as I have.

Review: Mr. Wrong Number by Lynn Painter

Review: Mr. Wrong Number by Lynn Painter

Things get textual when a steamy message from a random wrong number turns into a thrilling anonymous relationship in this hilarious rom-com by Lynn Painter.

Bad luck has always followed Olivia Marshall…or maybe she’s just the screw-up her family thinks she is. But when a “What are you wearing?” text from a random wrong number turns into the hottest, most entertaining—albeit anonymous—relationship of her life, she thinks things might be on the upswing….

Colin Beck has always considered Olivia his best friend’s annoying little sister, but when she moves in with them after one of her worst runs of luck, he realizes she’s turned into an altogether different and sexier distraction. He’s sure he can keep his distance, until the moment he discovers she’s the irresistible Miss Misdial he’s been sort of sexting for weeks—and now he has to decide whether to turn the heat up or ghost her before things get messy.

MY REVIEW

“You’re aren’t a hot mess at all, Livie. You’re just this…this…human tornado who is so alive, so filled with the energy of the moment, that there occasionally is a little collateral damage.”

Mr. Wrong Number was an absolute joy to read! This book was smart, funny, and kept this reader hooked from start to finish.

Bad luck follows Olivia everywhere she goes. She is the definition of a hot mess and is pretty much labeled the family screw-up. But, when Olivia receives a random text from a wrong number, her luck might just be starting to change…To Colin, he’s only ever seen Olivia as his best friend’s annoying little sister. But when Olivia has to crash with Colin and her brother, he suddenly starts seeing her in a different light. He’s trying his best to keep things status quo, but that all goes out the window when he discovers the identity of his misdialed text….

Mr. Wrong Number is a fun read from beginning to end. Olivia is a total hot mess, but I found her so relatable. She doesn’t have her stuff all together and is doing her best to figure it all out. I loved how she owned the mistakes she made and remained true to herself. And then there is Colin. Colin is the complete opposite of Olivia. He’s successful and has all of his ducks in a row. Colin and Olivia couldn’t be more opposite if they tried, but once you get these two together, the sparks are unable to be denied.

Olivia and Colin’s story hit so many of my favorite tropes: romantic comedy, enemies to lovers, and older brother’s best friend. I loved the banter between Olivia and Colin. They both dished it out as well as they took it. They were real with one another and the chemistry between them was off the charts. I loved all of the slow-burning moments, wrong number texts, and of course, the will they/won’t they moments. I honestly couldn’t get enough of Olivia and Colin and never wanted their story to end.

Mr. Wrong Number is my first book by Lynn Painter and it certainly won’t be my last. This book knocked it out of the park and checked off each one of this romance lover’s boxes. I hope you’ll pick up Mr. Wrong Number and fall head over heels for Colin and Olivia as I have.

MY REVIEW

“Everything abandoned deserves a new story.” “Otherwise, what’s the point to all this?”

On The Honey Side is a heartwarming, small-town romance that will leave readers with all the feels.

On The Honey Side follows the story of Keaton and Daisy. Once upon a time, Keaton was on top of the world, but when tragedy strikes his entire world gets turned upside down. Now, Keaton is just a shell of the man he once was and is just trying to keep his business afloat. The last thing he has time for is Daisy. But, when fate throws them together for a community project, an undeniable spark presents itself to them. Will Daisy be the spark to bring Keaton back to life and the man he once was? There’s only one way to find out….

Overall, I thought this book was a quick and easy read. The characters were easy to relate to and connect with. Daisy and Keaton were both no strangers to loss and heartbreak. And while Keaton’s past turned him into this broody and grump of a man, somehow, Daisy remained a ray of sunshine who held onto hope. I loved the slow burn of their story, seeing them both take chances and overcome their pasts.

Something that really stood out to me in this book was the author wasn’t afraid to go after the tough issues. Not only does this book deal with heartbreak and loss, but it also deals with the really heavy and hard issues surrounding homelessness and the way it affects a community.

There’s a lot to love and enjoy about On The Honey Side. On The Honey Side is smartly written and entertaining. The characters are wonderful and easy to connect with. I adored the slow-burning romance and drama that followed. I loved the small-town that Daisy and Keaton were a part of and how the town came together to help and support one of their own.

If you love Grumpy Sunshine, Small-Town, Second Chance Romances, you won’t want to miss On The Honey Side. I can’t wait to see what this author will have in store for us next.

MY REVIEW

The most anticipated follow-up to The Insiders is finally here and it does not disappoint! Once again, Tijan has weaved a story of romance, intrigue, and drama that was impossible for this reader to put down.

The Damaged picks up right where the last book left off and leaves no stone unturned. For every answer, we’re left with a million more questions. There are so many secrets, lies, revelations, and moments that just mess with your head. The hits just keep coming as the massive web begins to unfold and believe me when I say there is never a dull moment. Just when you think you know what’s going to happen next the rug gets pulled out from under you.

The Damaged is anything but predictable and the ending left me reeling. I need to know what will happen next and how our characters will come out of the other side of this latest curveball….

Review: Good Girl Complex by Elle Kennedy

She does everything right. So what could go wrong?

Mackenzie “Mac” Cabot is a people pleaser. Her demanding parents. Her prep school friends. Her long-time boyfriend. It’s exhausting, really, always following the rules. Unlike most twenty-year-olds, all she really wants to do is focus on growing her internet business, but first she must get a college degree at her parents’ insistence. That means moving to the beachside town of Avalon Bay, a community made up of locals and the wealthy students of Garnet College.

Mac’s had plenty of practice suppressing her wilder impulses, but when she meets local bad boy Cooper Hartley, that ability is suddenly tested. Cooper is rough around the edges. Raw. Candid. A threat to her ordered existence. Their friendship soon becomes the realest thing in her life.

Despite his disdain for the trust-fund kids he sees coming and going from his town, Cooper soon realizes Mac isn’t just another rich clone and falls for her. Hard. But as Mac finally starts feeling accepted by Cooper and his friends, the secret he’s been keeping from her threatens the only place she’s ever felt at home.

MY REVIEW

2022 is already off to a great start for reading. Good Girl Complex is the second book of the year to knock my socks off. 

The Good Girl Complex is smartly written and entertaining. What started off as a revenge plot quickly lead to something more. Good Girl Complex is filled with lots of laugh-out-loud moments and angsty ones too. I loved the bad boy/good girl, wrong side of the tracks vibes.

Cooper and Mac were total opposites with amazing chemistry and banter. I loved Cooper and Mac together and couldn’t get enough of them. Sure there were some moments when I wanted to shake Cooper and his friends, but in the end, they all won me over and had me glued to the pages.

Good Girl Complex was everything I was looking for in a NA read. It was fun. It was entertaining. It had great romance and lots of good drama. I had a great time getting lost in Cooper and Mac’s story and look forward to seeing what this author has in store for us next.

Review: Surrender to Me by Kelly Elliott

Arabella Adams was the one woman I would have laid my life down for, no matter the circumstance, because that’s what you would do for your soulmate. But when she broke up with me our senior year of college—for no reason or explanation at all—my world as I knew it fell completely apart. My heart was instantly ripped from my chest…and it was a pain I felt in my very soul, and one I never truly recovered from.

Now, here I am, ten years later, and I’ve finally learned the real reason Bella pushed me away. So, I must prove to her that anything that happened in her past—our past—doesn’t change the way I feel about her. After all, soulmates never stop loving each other, and even a decade later, I will make her see that I will protect her until the day I die.

Because you see, we promised one another we wouldn’t keep secrets, wouldn’t hide parts of ourselves that the other wouldn’t understand. Except, well, I lied. Because the moment I find the person who took Bella from me all those years ago, I’m going to make him pay for every lost moment of the past ten years, and nothing—not even the fact I’m a cop—will stop me from inflicting the same level of pain on him that Arabella and me endured all this time.

Note to readers: Arabella endures trauma no woman should have to suffer. Respectfully, the author invites you to emotionally and mentally prepare before experiencing this book on your own terms, should you choose to do so.

MY REVIEW

The Boggy Creek Series just keeps getting better and better.

Surrender to Me is the latest installment in the Boggy Creek Series and follows the story of Arabella and Hunter. Arabella and Hunter had the kind of relationship and connection that people could only hope to find. They were so sure of the love they shared for one another and had no idea that one simple twist of fate would turn their entire worlds upside down….

Surrender to Me is a beautiful and heartwarming second chance romance. It is the kind of story that will tug on your heartstrings and leave you feeling a buffet of emotions. Hunter is the kind of guy that every girl wishes for. He loves fiercely and hard. He’ll do anything to protect those who are important to him. And despite the odds and how hurt he was losing Arabella, he never gave up hope. That brings up to Arabella. Arabella has the biggest heart and just lights up the room when you’re around her. She too loves fiercely and loves hard. But when her life gets turned upside down, she finds herself in a neverending loop of pain and confusion. The last thing she wants to do is hurt the man she loves….

Surrender to Me is a truly beautiful story. I was swept up in Arabella and Hunter’s story instantly and couldn’t wait for them to find their way back to each other. Their story isn’t an easy one and deals with some tough subject matter. Author Kelly Elliott did an amazing job with this subject matter and made it very easy to connect with the characters.

Hunter and Arabella’s story is a beautiful love story that will make you swoon, rage, fall in love, and believe in second chances. Kelly Elliott fans, you won’t want to miss this heartwarming love story.
