Blog Tour: The Accidental Girlfriend by Emma Hart

TAGlive2

The Accidental Girlfriend, an all-new hilarious romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Emma Hart is available now!

THE ACCIDENTAL GIRLFRIEND - DRAFT1 (1)

Top Tip: Don’t put out an online ad offering your services as a fake date. Someone will take you up on it.

And it won’t just be for one night.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how I ended up being Mason Jackson’s fake girlfriend.

He didn’t even want me to be. No—his sister was solely responsible for me being his date for his ten-year high school reunion.

Now, she’s responsible for telling his parents our relationship is real.

We have no choice. We have to act like this isn’t all a mistake, like it’s not all fake, like we’re totally, completely, utterly, head-over-heels in love with each other.

Simple, right?

Wrong.

Excerpt:

“I’ve seen you eat nothing but junk. Are you one of those irritating people who can eat what they want and put on no weight?”

“Okay, first.” I held up one finger. “You look like you could walk into the cast of the Avengers, so don’t come at me with that. Also, I run. Every day. And I don’t always eat junk.”

“You run?” His eyebrows shot up.

“I don’t know if I should be insulted or not.”

“No, I just—you don’t look like a runner.”

“And you don’t look like Chris Hemsworth, but here you are on my sofa looking like a dark-haired Norse god,” I shot back. “What’s your point?”

He held up his hands, fighting another laugh, one that made his eyes shine. “Hey, I have a physical job. I rarely get to the gym, but I’m always moving.”

“Have you ever worked behind a bar? I’m not exactly running a call center back there. It never stops sometimes.”

“Do I look like I mix cocktails?”

Doing what he’d done just minutes before, I took a long, hard look at him, from head to toe.

It was a mistake.

If I were a sloth, I wouldn’t just climb him like a tree; I’d hang off him for a nap, too.

Lord, he was hot.

Focus, Lauren.

“No,” I said. “You look like the lone wolf who waits for the cocktail-drinking girls to accidentally spill their drinks on your shoes.” I glanced at the time. “Speaking of, I have to go and make those cocktails.”

Mason grinned. “You want me to come and get hit on by drunk girls?”

“As someone who has no say in your life whatsoever, I don’t care what you do.” I stood up and looked at him over my shoulder. “As your fake girlfriend, I’m a bit of a tiger, so I wouldn’t.”

“I know.” He snorted, following me to the front door with his laptop tucked under his arm. “I’ve seen you play the possessive girlfriend. If this weren’t all fake, I would have been a little turned on.”

I locked the front door and tossed my hair over my shoulder. “Please. You were totally turned on.”

He said nothing as we headed for the stairs.

“You can say something. That was a joke.” I glanced at him, heat rushing to my cheeks.

His lips pulled into a smirk, eyes flashing. “I reserve the right to not respond.”

MY REVIEW

“Hugging Mason was like wrapping yourself up into a blanket burrito. It was like eating a pint of ice-cream on day one of your period. Like wearing sweats and no bra while eating last night’s cold pizza. Like rereading your favorite book or watching your favorite movie for the hundredth time. Yeah. He was just…comfortable.”

“I wanted to peel back the layers of Lauren Green and see what made her tick.”

I just live for stories like The Accidental Girlfriend. The kind of story that just cracks you up. The kind of story where the chemistry and steam just oozes off the page. The kind of story that just has you living for those will they/won’t they moments. The Accidental Girlfriend had it all and then some.

From the moment I picked up The Accidental Girlfriend, I was hooked. Lauren is the kind of girl that is just so cool, so calm, so comfortable with herself. She’s the kind of girl that is loyal to her friends and has zero filter. So, when her friends talk her into placing a fake girlfriend ad, I just knew it was going to lead to something epic. And I was not disappointed. Mason was exactly what Lauren was missing from her life. He got her humor and loved to rile her up. Their connection was off the charts and had a ton of amazing potential. I was glued to the pages of their story and couldn’t wait to see what would happen next.

I honestly just love fake relationship stories. I mean, you have a pretty good idea of how they’re going to play out, but there is just something about Emma Hart’s books that make me feel like I’ve never experienced this type of story before. I love the feeling her books give me. The feeling of laughing so much that tears come out of my eyes. The feeling of having my heart tugged at when you hit the climax of a fake relationship story. I live and breath for these moments and Emma Hart never lets me down. The Accidental Girlfriend made me laugh, made me swoon, and made me fall head over heels in love.

The Accidental Girlfriend was such a fun story. I couldn’t get enough of Mason and Lauren together. Their banter cracked me up and had me begging for more. The sexual tension was off the charts and the story incredibly well written. I loved the heck out of The Accidental Girlfriend. It was a fabulous read from beginning to end and was the perfect read to spend my day getting lost in.

Review: The Locker Room by Meghan Quinn

Posted on

HAVE YOU HEARD THE RUMOR AROUND CAMPUS ABOUT THE LOCKER ROOM?

If you haven’t, let me enlighten you: Legend has it if you bring a girl into the sacred after-game domain of the baseball locker room, it will end with a walk down the aisle. Basically one rowdy and naked encounter against the lockers with the girl of your dreams will make her your wife.

TRANSLATION: BASEBALL PLAYERS ARE STUPIDLY SUPERSTITIOUS AND BELIEVE THE LOCKER ROOM HAS MAGICAL POWERS.

But not all baseball players are superstitious, me included.

So when the girl I’ve fallen for brushes me off, I start to question if I need to switch my way of thinking. Maybe it’s time I finally hand out a coveted invitation to the locker room.

THE ONLY QUESTION IS, WILL SHE ACCEPT?

MY REVIEW

“A man never reveals his true feelings after the fourth encounter. Don’t you know anything about love arcs.”

“I’m invested in Emory Ealson. From the moment her map slapped me in the face, I knew this girl was something special, and I plan on showing her that.”

“Friends forever. That’s what we promised each other. But sometimes, promises were made to be broken.”

“It was like I’d been holding my breath for eight years, and I finally let it out.”

The Locker Room by Meghan Quinn is by far and away one of my favorite romantic comedies/sports romances of 2019. This book completely exceeded my expectations and took my heart on the most incredible journey.

From the moment I picked up The Locker Room, I was instantly sucked in. I was immediately drawn to Emory and couldn’t wait to see her story unfold. When we first meet up with Emory, she’s in desperate need of a fresh start. Her focus is on her friends and her studies and she isn’t about to let anyone get close to her heart. All that immediately flies out the window when she crashes into Knox. Knox is a force to be reckoned with. He’s like sunshine on a cloudy day. Everyone and everything just gravitates towards him and when his sights get set on Emory, all bets are off. There is just something about her and Knox can’t help but want to know more. Emory’s not going to make it easy, but Knox is in for the long haul and is ready to pull out all the stops. Will Emory fall for Knox’s charms and break down her walls??? There’s only one way to find out…..

Man, oh, Man! I just loved The Locker Room. This book was not at all what I expected. I totally didn’t see Knox and Emory’s story coming and I just loved every single second of it. The writing was flawless and the plot was a ton of fun. The characters were real, flawed and easy to relate to. Knox was ridiculously charming and you just couldn’t help but be in a good mood when he was around. And while Emory might seem reserved, she had a great sass to her and gave it to Knox just as good as he dished it out. I loved watching these two together and seeing their friendship develop. Their banter was electric and consuming. I couldn’t get enough of the two of them. One minute they had me laughing my butt off and then the very next, the sexual tension was just oozing off of the pages. They had the most incredible slow burn that made all of those will they/won’t they moments so worth it. Seriously, I just loved getting lost in these two.

Now, the road to happily ever after for these two is not an easy one. There are lots of good times, but heartbreaking ones too. I’m not kidding when I tell you that Knox and Emory put my heart through the wringer. I felt each emotion right along with these characters. Some of their actions broke my heart and made me rage. I knew why certain things had to happen, but that didn’t make it any easier. But, for a girl who loves herself some angst, I obviously couldn’t get enough. From the heartache to the misunderstandings to the weak moments and ones that make you swoon. Emory and Knox were so perfectly matched and I couldn’t help but root for these two to figure things out and fight for their happily ever after.

The Locker Room is a second chance, romantic comedy, sports romance all wrapped up in a terrific read. I loved every single minute of this story from beginning to end. I loved all the main and secondary characters. I loved getting wrapped up in Emory & Knox’s romance. I lived for the moments that had me laughing so hard my sides hurt and then those moments that just tugged at my heart. Simply put, I LOVED this book!!

TheLockerRoom_teaser-1-2[1]

Excerpt:

This map is useless.

Easy to read, my ass. I need a magnifying glass to make out any of the color-coded buildings on this thing and unfortunately, I left my magnifying glass in my other skirt. That was sarcasm, if you didn’t catch it.

Standing next to a wonky-looking tree, I try to act as casual as possible—hip popped out, interested glances, the usual—as I hide a school map beneath the pages of Pride and Prejudice , while off-handedly looking for the MacMillan building. But the wind—though subtle—isn’t making things easy.

Recently transferred from Cal State, Fullerton, I’m attempting to avoid making a fool of myself on the first day of fall classes at my new school, Brentwood University.

Unfortunately, I’m way out of my element.

For one, I know nothing about this school other than they have the best library sciences program in the country. Making the transfer a no-brainer for me the minute I realized I wanted to be a librarian. I dabbled in business at Cal State, but who was I kidding? I had no right trying to figure out micro-and macroeconomics.

A California girl through and through, Illinois is nothing like the palm trees and beaches I’ve grown up with. Don’t get me wrong, there are trees here, huge, plush, green trees everywhere, the kind of trees Bob Ross made dance on his canvas. But the smog . . . I have no idea where that is. Breathing fresh air almost feels wrong. And apparently pizza is a big deal here. I’ve heard at least three separate arguments since I’ve moved about which pizza in town is best. Let’s all be friends and be grateful there is good pizza here.

And even though this is a “small” school town outside Chicago, it’s larger than life with boisterous personalities and ivy-covered buildings that cause me to believe I’m walking on the hallowed grounds where the prosperous were educated.

Plus, I had to buy leggings for all my skirts, because the temperature doesn’t call for bare legs out here.

The wind picks up again, lifting my skirt and map at the same time. Not wanting to be known as the resident flasher on campus, I save the skirt—because even though I have leggings, I chose not to wear them today—and tamp it back down on my legs as the map lifts from my book, floats into the air, twirling and swirling only to smack a passing guy right in the face.

Whap .

“What the—?” He startles and I jump into action.

“I’m so sorry,” I say, scrambling to hold my skirt down while clutching my parted book at my chest.

The map is slowly peeled away and a pair of beautiful light blue eyes peek past the paper first, followed by the sharpest jawline I’ve ever seen, defined and tense. Light scruff matches his dirty-blond hair that is swept to the left and cut short on the sides. Dressed in a green Brentwood baseball sweatshirt and wearing a jaw-dropping smile, he chuckles and hands me the map while eyeing me up and down.

Why is he so familiar?

Those eyes.

“Not a problem, but you could have asked for help if you were lost. Slapping me with a map is an aggressive tactic, effective, but aggressive.”

That voice, that smirk. I know it from somewhere.

Feeling a light blush creep up my cheeks, I say, “Not used to the wind.”

He nods and thumbs behind him. “Lake Michigan. It’s a bitch in the winter.” He studies me for a second and then nods at my map. “Where you headed? I can help.” There is the smallest southern drawl in his voice, nothing strong, but enough to tell me he’s not from Illinois.

I know that voice. I remember specifically thinking it was hot.

Tamping down my map and folding it in my book that I snap shut quickly, I say, “I promised I’d figure this all out on my own, but looks like I might need a little help after all.”

“Don’t blame yourself; this campus is a maze with no rhyme or reason. I was lost my entire first semester. Can’t tell you how many times I was late to class.”

“That’s reassuring.”

He tilts his head to the side and gives me a small once-over. “I know you.” I don’t say anything and just as his eyes land on my chest, a smile creeps over his face, a light bulb lighting in his head. “You’re the girl who helped me find my room on Saturday.”

Oh.

Shit.

It’s the yellow-door baseball guy.

He leans forward, hands stuffed in his pockets and says, “I never forget a good pair of tits.”

As if I wasn’t blushing enough already.

Waiting for Wednesday: Coming Up Roses by Staci Hart

Posted on

Release Date: August 1st, 2019

Everyone hates parts of their job.

Maybe it’s the paperwork. Maybe it’s the day-to-day grind. Maybe it’s that client who never knows what they want, or the guy who always cooks fish in the microwave.

But not me. I love every corner of the Longbourne Flower Shop, every flower, every petal, every stem. I love the greenhouse, and I love Mrs. Bennet, my boss. I love creating, and I love being a florist. I don’t hate anything at all.

Except for Luke Bennet.

The Bennet brothers have come home to help their mom save the flower shop, and Luke is at the helm. His smile tells a tale of lust, loose and easy. He moves with the grace of a predator, feral and wild. A thing unbridled, without rules or constraint.

When he comes home to save Longbourne, I almost can’t be mad at him.

Almost.

He doesn’t remember that night I’ll never forget. That kiss, touched with whiskey and fire. It branded me like a red-hot iron. But it meant nothing to him.

Everyone hates part of their job, and I hate Luke Bennet.

Because if I don’t, I’ll fall in love with him.

About Staci

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.

From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

Cover Reveal: Kiss Me Not by Emma Hart

Posted on

KMN-BANNER1.jpg

What do you do when you’re the reigning kissing booth champion but the only person you want to kiss is your best friend’s brother?

Kiss Me Not, an all- new hilarious brother’s best friend standalone romance from New York Times bestselling author Emma Hart is coming August 27th and we have the fresh and fun cover!

KISSMENOT-FULL-ebook.jpg

Let me make this clear right here, right now: I, Halley Dawson, do not care that Preston Wright is kissing other women.

Not a lick. Not at all. Nuh-uh-freakin’-uh.

I do care that he’s doing it six feet away from me behind a gaudy velvet curtain—making him my competition in this year’s kissing contest.

Why do I care, you ask? Because I’ve had an unfortunate crush on the insufferable idiot since I was sixteen years old, but I also know it’s never going to happen.

He’s the Creek Falls bachelor to die for, and I’m the Creek Falls racoon lady who puts peanut butter sandwiches out for them every night.

I’m not going to let him break my four-year-long reign—no matter how many times he breaks the rules and slides the curtain across to do the one thing he’s not allowed to:

Kiss me.
