Avery Sunshine might not have a soul mate of her own, but she still believes in happily ever after—for her clients. Making dreams come true is her business at Sunshine Bridal, which she runs with her two sisters. When her best friend announces her engagement, Avery is thrilled to take charge of the giddy bride-to-be’s big day. Less thrilling? Her best friend’s arrogant and demanding brother, who just so happens to be the man of honor.
Carter Ross’s first instinct: call 911. He promised to always take care of his impulsive little sister, and he honors that vow. Even if it means taking over her wedding, where he is sure Avery will fail. At best, Avery is unpredictable. At worst, if she’s anything like the spitfire of a college girl he remembers, the main event could run wild.
With Avery and Carter wrestling for control, tempers heat up. So does the spark of attraction they’re fighting with every kiss. As the wedding draws near, it’s time to reconcile a rocky past and make a decision that could change everyone’s lives. Because what they’re rebelling against looks a lot like love.

RELEASE DATE: May 1, 2020

Not my first read by this author, she happens to be one of my very first reads and a favorite author!!

Avery: She has a nick for giving people what they want before they even know it. That’s why she is perfect at her job, wedding planning. Even if that one time, a ex almost ruined a wedding. She’s very head strong, beautiful, super smart, sassy and can hold her ground. Her capacity of love is un-measurable, just plain loved the heroine through out the entire book!
Carter: Is a strong, sexy , successful and very competitive man who can’t understand how his little sister is getting married. He is not ready to let her go fully, but when she asks him to be her man of honor, he can’t say no to her. Carter buds his head into EVERYTHING Avery has planned, meaning he is no on-the-side-line Man OH nooo, he gets a joy from riling up Avery. After all she is the first woman to make him feel anything after all the years.

This is where two clash, one wedding planner and one man that is very OCD and has to be and have control. They both re so alike, determined, hard working, smart, hard-headed, stubborn and lonely even though neither would admit that. Their banter and little games at times got really frustrating but in a fun way, loved seeing them go head to head…*sigh* it’s a sweet can-and-mouse game because when they both swore they’d never get feeling involved to protect them selves…one falls first and when the other WON’T CHASE…well that’s where this heartfelt story turns! A MUST READ!!

R E V I E W ➠ That Secret Crush by Meghan Quinn



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

What happens when your secret crush isn’t so secret anymore?
I’ve had feelings for Eve Roberts for as long as I can remember, but because she also happens to be the twin sister of my best friend, Eric, I’ve never acted on my feelings and long ago resigned myself to keeping my crush under wraps.
But after a terrible falling-out with Eric involving a failed restaurant venture and plenty of blame on both sides, I’m back in Port Snow without my best friend and without any direction. But can you guess who’s here? Eve. And my attraction to her is as strong as ever.
As old feelings rush back, Eve and I find ourselves pulled together, whether we like it or not. Lines are crossed, secrets are kept, and we soon discover that the difference between love and friendship may not be so black and white, after all.
Everyone wants that secret crush to love them back…but will I be ready when she does?

RELEASE DATE: February 11, 2020

Hopelessly optimistic would be the last way I’d describe you. More like sarcastically pessimistic.”

-Eve

Not my first read by the author and i have read the previous books in this series. loved every single one. that said, unfortunately this was not my cup of tea. Don’t get me wrong the story and words were fantastic because this authors knows how to write but the events, let me explain. I wont go into too much detail because i don’t want anyone to think I’m bashing anything, just simply not my taste in hero and heroine.

The hero is actually the oldest of the brothers. he is a man that had it all and lost everything including himself in one night. forwards years later he is now so low on himself that he doesn’t think he deserves anything. the heroine is actually the hero’s best friends little sister, therefore they have know each other since they were 10. she is someone who knows sacrifice and hard work, and always kept going even when times felt hard.  when lines get crossed as this is a brothers best friend and friends to lovers romance, thing heat up…you know what they say. if you cant stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. now the reason i was not fond of the characters is because, although they are older in age their actions just didn’t vibe with me. the hero deflects his past and pain with humor and therefore this is a rom-com all on its own and its funny but its just a lot in some sections of the book. the heroine is touch and go 50/50 one minute i am on my toes but then she does something like forgive easy and lets him off the hook. one particular part that turned me off, was the indecisiveness, it was over baring for me. on both ends. i cant say much without giving out the book but that played a huge part to me.  all that said, these are my opinions and feelings. when i read i really read with the whole me and what kind of reader would i be if i didn’t voice the truth on those feelings while reading. i hope no one takes it the wrong way because i truly truly love this series, just this was a miss for me.

Getting Lucky Series

R E V I E W ➠ Just Kidding by Lani Lynn Vale



GOODREADS AMAZONAUTHOR WEBSITE

Let’s do a calendar, they said. It’ll be fun, they said.
Well, they—I.e. Kilgore Police Department’s public relations specialists—were wrong.
Now, every time Dax Tremaine walks around a corner, the women of Kilgore, Texas can’t help calling him Mr. January.
Mr. January, can you fix my flat tire? Mr. January, can you cuff me? Mr. January, can you sign my boob?
It goes from bad to worse when even on a SWAT call, the women won’t stay away. It was the worst time of her life. Rowen Roberts had finally admitted to herself that the man she loved would never love her back. She was just fired from her job for violating client confidentiality, and to make matters worse, she’s held up at gunpoint in a convenience store where she only wanted some ice cream to help mask the pain. The moment the gun is pressed to her forehead, she knows she has a decision to make. Follow the rules and maybe possibly live, or go down swinging where at least she can salvage just a little bit of her dignity. And when Mr. January himself tells her to do what the gunman says, she’s had enough. Rowen has never really been a girl that does what she’s told. Mr. January won’t have to save her. She can dang well save herself.

RELEASE DATE: January 7, 2019

“…the moment his hand left my skin, I felt like my soul did, too.”

-Row

This is not my first read by author, she happens to be one of my favorites and I have read very very many books by her. This is a new-ish series Book #1 meaning there is a SWAT 1.0 and this is the 2nd generation. To say that I wasn’t surprised it was going to rock, I JUST KNEW IT. Lani has away of writing books simple yet with so much that at the end you’ll want to read all her books because as same as they might come off, they are very different each book in the series with new things, problems, and character ways. It’s really fantastic, that combined with her witting and words…gold!

This is really a sweet story, a realistic and to heart. We have the heroine Rowen who is the daughter of a police officer and the hero Dex who is a police office in the same force as Row’s dad. They run into each other after a rather not so cool incident that occurred to Row at the end of her internship, see she just graduated law school and finished her first year. For good reasons and some dangerous, she moves back home and away from the craziness, only to end up moving next to the sexy (I’ve had a crush on him for a long time) Dex. It’s starts of as a slow burn but when it’s lit, bot does it burn and burn hot! It’s a sweet and just so realistic kind of burn, the kind that exists in real life. Row is a upfront and honest person, and Dex appreciates that very much. So much happening in this book, lot’s of fun scenes to keep you engaged and of course little bit of danger. Looking forward to more in this 2.0 Series!

A MUST READ!

R E V I E W ➠ Wait For Me by Tia Louise



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Dear Taron,
I should have told you this a long time ago…

Dear Taron,
Is there a time-limit on forgiveness?
If there is, I haven’t reached it…

Dear Taron,
I still love you…

A letter never sent.
Heck, I never even finished it.

Taron Rhodes was my brother’s best friend.
He was sexy as sin.
But he was more than that…
He was ponytail-pulling, ice down your shirt teasing, throw you in the lake screaming…
Strong, tanned arms and blue-green eyes over a heart-stopping, naughty grin…
Did I mention his tight end?
I gave him my first real kiss, my heart, my everything.
I said I’d wait for him…
I’m still waiting, because Taron Rhodes is still the man of my dreams,
And I have a secret that has his blue-green eyes.
Noel LaGrange stole my heart when she was only eighteen —pushing me off a flatbed and calling me a city slicker.
Her brother Sawyer would kick my ass if he knew how many times we made out that summer, how close we got.
Everything changed when Sawyer and I joined the military.
We were honorably discharged, but I didn’t go to her.
Instead, I went back to the city… where no amount of money, no amount of pills can heal this wound.
Only her whiskey eyes and dark hair, her slim arms and her sweet scent, give me hope.
I broke her heart just as surely as I broke mine, but I’m going back to make it right.
If she’s still waiting…

(WAIT FOR ME is a STAND-ALONE small-town, second-chance romance with a guaranteed HEA. No cheating. No cliffhangers.)

RELEASE DATE: December 16, 2019

Heaven is finding the thing you can’t live without and being able to hold it. Hell is knowing you’ll have to let it go.

-Taron

Not my first read by the author and since I have discovered Tia I have read every single book she has put out since. This BLURB alone will get you, just wait until the story,
ALL THE EMOTIONS! It’s a beautiful story of YOUNG LOVE and over-comings.

Taron & Noel meet at the worst and yet best time ever! After spending a short amount of time together, they fall head over heels in love. When Taron leaves along with Noel’s brother, it’s a hard one…the first leaves are always the hardest. The in between is beautiful and emotional, it’s so much love…reminded me kind of like a 50’s when man meets woman and leaves for the war and she waits for him…it’s just young love is all I will say. But as hot as it burns, it crashes even harder. You really will FEEL this one!

Then you get your heart ripped out and placed back! It’s a ride I wasn’t prepared for, this second chance romance is on another level. It’s a little of known and a lot of new. Having read a lot of books by this author, I am familiar with her style so that’s where the KNOWN comes in and the new, is just a few things that really took me by surprise! Emotional, beautiful and romantic. You get a little of everything & all in Tia’s amazing writing style.

R E V I E W ➠ The Husband Checklist by Jasmin Miller



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

There are moments when you think life is going one way and a major curveball sends you the complete opposite direction. That’s me, standing in the rain, wondering how things went so terribly wrong.
What do I need? To hide at my brother’s house to lick my wounds.
What do I get? My brother’s roommate, sexy-as-sin best friend, Carter Kennedy.
The cute, adventurous boy who was my teenage crush. The inspiring, irresistible man who will never be mine.
But then things get complicated with fun-filled days and pleasure-filled nights.
If Carter wasn’t the most commitment-phobic person I know, I could consider the cliché of dating my brother’s best friend. But he will never fit the husband checklist I made to find the man who will be my world, and I’m not willing to compromise on that.
At least, that’s the plan.

RELEASE DATE: November 7, 2019

New to me author & books. This wonderful author has been a fan of mine for a while and I am glad to have met her through the amazing Romance community. This will be my first read & I am excited!! ALSO, I now have a beautiful signed paperback of this amazing book!!

Julia get’s her heart broken and broken up with, what’s a girl to do? Of course you run to your brother’s house to lick your wounds…only to find the every so teenage crush now sexy as sin man Carter who you’d rather lick. But he is also her brother’s best friend, and she isn’t all about that clique of dating your older brother’s best friend…not to mention that Carter is a NO-COMMITTMENT type of man. Pppfff, what makes him think he is even fit for her HUSBAND CHECKLIST anyways!

But when lines get blurred and crossed…neither Julia or Carter want to get hurt of course, but things get a little rough on the edges I don’t want to say too much to give it out but I can say it’s a ride you want to be ready for. The love and feelings in this is un-real. I connected to both characters. Julia just wants to make sure everything is okay with her and her brother and everything, after the tragedy she really wasn’t sure where to go in life. And Carter, well he is a man so of course clueless but really sweet. The secret in all this, will blow you away. I really enjoyed this friends-to-lovers story!

R E V I E W ➠ Breaker by Harloe Rae



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

“Tell me a happy something, Sutton.”
I was only seven the first time Grady Bowen whispered those words to me. Cloaked by the black sky under a blanket of stars, it was easy to get lost. He didn’t have any good memories of his own, and needed to borrow mine. I’d willingly give him anything.
Being infatuated with that boy was a beautiful curse. What could have been special didn’t get the chance to bloom. He’d never see me as more than his best friend’s kid sister. That was a hard lesson to learn, but not the most difficult.
Grady had always been struggling against the odds. Eventually he quit fighting and let his family’s reputation own him. Try as I might, those influences were beyond my reach.
He didn’t mean to break my heart. Or maybe he did. I shouldn’t have made it so easy for him. Either way, our wrongs against each other carved new lines between us.
I went four years without seeing Grady—each one more painful than the last. That distance did nothing to dull my feelings toward him. But things are different now. Most noticeably is Grady. I barely recognize this man he’s become. And that’s the way he intends to keep it. Not that it really matters.
Grady Bowen stopped being my happy something long ago.

RELEASE DATE: October 24, 2019

“Tell me a happy something Sutton.”
Spending time with my brother’s best friend, also known as the love of my life.

Not my first read by author, so I am familiar with the style. The blurb alone in this was fantastic, along with the entire book! *sigh* the emotions this brought out in me, prepare some tissues people!!

Grady was a boy who has been dealth a hard hand, from when he can remember. Not only that but not as a teenager and young man, it’s no different, except HIM he feels different and people around him treat him differently. Except Sutton his best friend’s little sister. He doesn’t want to believe it not matter how much he really want’s it to be real and true.

Sutton has been in love with Grady from well, a very long time let’s say. She has tried everything to make him realize but she has always been the little sister of his best friend. FRIEND-ZONED hard core. Grady thinks that she is too good for him but all she ever wanted was simple…him!

When Sutton comes back after being gone for four years, the last thing she wants or needs is seeing Grady again. She told herself that she needs to move on, he made his intentions clear before she left for school. There is no difference now, except if she keeps telling herself that a few hundred more times, her heart will finally believe it too. What comes after, is a journey I was not ready to take, or the emotions that it brought out in me. Not an easy one at that, there is a lot of turns and bumps along the way. Not an easy love, but a worth one.

Excerpt:

“Why are you in my room?”

I almost wither under the intensity of Grady’s stare. His green eyes gleam in the near darkness. I imagine their emerald color luring me under an unbreakable spell. The golden specks swirling within will smolder from the effort. I clear the dryness from my throat. “I, uh, wanted to see you.”

“In the middle of the night? There better be a damn good reason.” The threat in his voice rings out, but I ignore it.

I study his stern expression, taking precious moments to peel away the hardened layers. Grady’s eyelids are heavy with the remaining threads of sleep. Thick stubble coats his sharp jaw. Dark blond hair hangs over his forehead in messy clumps. His rumpled state makes him more desirable. That’s a problem I don’t need help with. I long to feel the rasp of his calloused hands over every smooth inch of me. The slight burn would surely set me ablaze.

Doubt creeps in the longer I stall on him. This boy has been through hell. Why am I considering adding more unnecessary drama to his plate? A hollow pang in my heart answers the rhetorical question. I can count on two hands the days we’ve gone without seeing each other. Tomorrow will change all that. I’m not ready for goodbye.

After a decade, the memory of how we met is getting fuzzy. Grady stumbled onto our property late one night. He ran to our house under the midnight sky and hid from the horrors that occurred at his home. If the walls of his trailer could talk, I’m sure they’d scream. Grady is broken and battered, abandoned by those meant to love him the most. But I’ve never let him down. Maybe he’ll learn to rely on me one day. 

Either way, he’s an honorary member of our family. We welcomed him with open arms and never let go. Grady and my older brother have been best friends since they were nine. He’s unknowingly been the love of my life that entire time. If only he’d admit to feeling a fraction of the same. Or I had the guts to tell him. 

Grady shifts on his bed. The squeak of springs drags my attention out of our past. I need to be focusing on the future. When I lift my gaze, he’s still glaring at me. The desire to flee wobbles my knees. My courage is diminishing with each passing moment. This entire ambush will be a waste if I don’t spit my intentions out. Crossing the line is up to me. I clench my eyes shut and let the words spill free.

“I want you to take my virginity.”


R E V I E W ➠ Taming My Whiskey by Melissa Foster



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Being the princess of the Dark Knights motorcycle club doesn’t come with a white knight or a fairy-tale castle, and that’s okay, because Dixie Whiskey has never needed a man to slay her dragons or make her whole. Even so, after watching each of her brothers fall in love, she’d sure like a shot at her own happily ever after. But with the Dark Knights watching over her and the only man she’s ever wanted out of reach, she’s not holding her breath.
As the launch of Silver-Stone Cycles’ biggest line approaches, Jace Stone is left needing a favor from the one woman who holds the power to take him to his knees. He knows when it comes to sinfully gorgeous and sharp-tongued Dixie Whiskey, he must stay on his toes and keep his walls firmly in place. But Jace needs her for his business—and Jace Stone always gets what he wants.
When the tall, gruff, and darkly handsome biker presents an opportunity that any other woman might see as the chance of a lifetime, Dixie turns him down flat. But Jace is determined, and he pulls out all the stops—sending Dixie’s overprotective brothers up in arms. Rebellious Dixie takes a stand—going after the freedom, and the man, she’s always wanted. One scorching kiss leads to an undeniable connection, but Jace isn’t looking to be tied down, and Dixie refuses to play second fiddle. Can two untamable hearts find forever love in each other’s arms?

RELEASE DATE: October 23, 2019

She was Dixie Whiskey, a challenging woman who could handle herself like a strong woman should. And that was dangerous.

-Jace Stone

“I have a feeling you’re trouble, Stone.” she said.
“Of the very best kind.”

Not my first read by the author, she is one of my TOP FAVORITE and have read most of her books. When Whiskey is involved HA if you know me I HAD TO READ IT. Especially that this involved the infamous Dixie Whiskey! I. CAN’T. I have been waiting for this for soooo long! I loved LOVED Dixie in all the previous books she’s played part in. Gah! This was everything and more. It gave me all the feelings, the feeling I chase when I read ALL HERE!!

“It’s been more than a decade, and like good liquor, Jace Stone had gotten better with age.

Dixie is a hell of a woman, have grown up having brother’s who protected her and also who she learned to be wild and free from, not to mention sharp with her tongue. She is living her life when she one night really looked at her family, all the happy, the beautiful love…she longs to be wanted. Being a free spirit she is, she hasn’t really been tied down or interested in it, except one man. A man she could never have even a decade later. Until Jace propositions her.

Jace Stone is a wild man, a free man, answers to no one from the day he left his parents home. He has not only worked hard but made something of himself. His business and adventures are something that many people strive for, but why is he not feeling it all like he should? He is missing something, and to replace it with something else he must work harder then he ever had to in life. How do you learn to give yourself to another when all your life you have just lived for yourself, to protect yourself? Well, Jace has found his match with Dixie the Princess.

The sex scenes are YES VERY SEXY but more, it’s more passion, more need, more romance…unbelievable. The chemistry between them, almost like two alphas of the opposite sex come together in a clash of waves. Dixie is one of my favorite Whiskey characters and Jace, well he was SO PERFECT for her. God, Melissa really knows how to bring on the feelings, I can’t express enough how much I LOVE this series and this one takes the cake. I love the men but Dixie is in one of her own class! A MUST MUST READ!

R E V I E W ➠ Falling For my Brother’s Best Friend by Piper Rayne



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Let’s say you’re an independent, self-sufficient woman who runs the family company and you find yourself falling for your little brother’s best friend. Now, more than ever, you need to count all the reasons why you need to abandon falling.
Abandon Falling #1 – He’s a womanizer. Hasn’t had a serious relationship a day in his life and changes women more often than he changes his sheets.
Abandon Falling #2 – He’s never serious. He cracks one-liners, mostly at your expense.
Abandon Falling #3 – When things go wrong, he seems unfazed and always remains in control. It’s so annoying.
Abandon Falling #4 – He has tattoos. Lots of them. Everywhere. Not to mention, he owns a tattoo parlor. (Damn it! Why doesn’t that sound like a bad thing anymore?)
Abandon Falling #5 – There’s a growing list of how different you two are. You can’t get along for fifteen minutes—a lifetime together would land one of you in prison.
Keep repeating those reasons and drown yourself in work. Pretend you don’t notice his good qualities or how enticing he looks without a shirt, and do not, I repeat, do not agree to live with the man while your place is being repaired from flood damage.
Trust me, even the strongest of us can only forego temptation for so long.

RELEASE DATE: October 15, 2019

Liam would be the best of distraction to make me forgot that I’m going to die alone after watching all my siblings get their happily ever afters.

-Sav

Not my first read by the author, I am very familiar with the style and writing. I always love a good brothers-best-fiend enemy-to-lovers book and this was a perfect one at that. The angst level on this is pretty high too.

Savannah is the oldest Bailey and also the most jaded. She was old enough to understand it all and some when their parents died. So life, it really dragged her through the mud for years. When she finally let’s go for a millisecond, she ends up making-out hot and heavy with Liam who is her brothers-best-friend. Let’s also not forget that she is temporarily living with him, and also HATES him for being a womanizer and just a plain man-whore.

You get a strong enemy-to-lovers doze in this, also little fun HINT Liam is 5 years YOUNGER than our heroine Sav. So I wasn’t expecting that, must not have payed enough attention form the previous books since this is Book 4 in the Bailey’s Series. I am usually not fond of younger her’s because they tend to be too immature and it clashes a bit. Sadly this did clash a bit, there were some parts where you can definitely tell that the hero is younger, from his actions. But not enough to put me off. It’s a different dynamic between the characters. A beautiful one once they get around to giving in, gah then I SWOONED all the way to the end!

When Liam offers Sav a deal, she jumps right on it. After all, she has been the HELPER and FIXER for most of her life to everyone, who says SHE can’t have some fun. Liam is the very sexy, tattooed, laid back and funny guy…who better to help than him. Liam takes her into a different kind fo world and things only get more angsty from there. The slow-burn and anticipation is a KILLER!! The conclusion to this was surprising and exciting.

GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

“I didn’t find it weird. It wasn’t like kissing a sister or something. I realized that when you were video calling the other night I wasn’t thinking about you like I would do a sister.”
“You know why that it?” She stepped towards him. “Because I’m not your sister. Funny that, isn’t it?”

He’s been saving her all her life, but can she save her heart from him?
Rayah Maynard’s loved her brother’s best friend for pretty much as long as she can remember, which unfortunately is the problem. He still sees her as the kid who he constantly needed to rescue whenever she got into trouble.
Jonny Graham has devoted himself to his three children and his career as a firefighter since his wife died when his youngest was just a baby. When his best friend’s sister starts setting him up on dates, he realizes she’s not the fearless kid who hung around with them, but can he trust her to keep herself – and his heart – safe?
Rayah wants to prove to Jonny she doesn’t need to be rescued anymore. When an arsonist puts the safety of the small town in jeopardy, she might have to choose – the man she’s loved for years or her town.
If she can stay safe enough to make that choice.

This steamy small town single dad, friends-to-lovers, firefighter romance is part of the Severton Search & Rescue series but can be read as a stand-alone.

RELEASE DATE: September 20, 2019

“I don’t mind saving you Rayah, I never did. I try to look after all my friends.”
And there it was. The sound of her heart being gently torn right down the middle.

She needed the sky with it’s stars and the moon to give her that room to calm.

-Rayah

New to me author and books, the Blurb is what got me! Also, I am not sure what happened but when I got to this ARC which I thought was releasing was the 27th of Sept. but I guess it was the 20th. So I am a bit late yes, but in my defense I really had it down on the 27th from the author. Either way, I am just glad I was able to get to it.

“You seriously offered to set him up on a date? With another woman?”

-Sorrell [Best Friend]

That’s how it all started, Rayah’s big idea of setting up the man she has been in love with, with another woman. Oh that’s right she was thinking that it would help him, help his children…when in all she has been ignoring HER ISSUES. Then the angst game begins and you’ll want to just push them two together. *sigh* but I totally understand her because gosh not only is he a handsome and sexy single father but also a firefighter and sweet, and rough and and… *sigh*

When they both come to an agreement, it’s all fun and sexy…but in reality how can Ray keep her heart safe…she know’s how, she can’t no matter what. And Jonny will never know that her heart will be crushed no matter what the outcome. But you can’t blame Jonny too much, he became a widower with three children, someone who saves people for a living couldn’t save his late wife. So I give him that but OUCH are there some scenes in here that would crack my stone black heart too. P.S. DIRTY FIREFIGHTER ALERT! *sizzling* I think the only reason I rather this a 4.5 is because of the heroine. She at times rubbed me the wrong way, in a way, I can’t explain it I just it was enough for me to make my decision you know! But over all I LOVED IT. The story line, the side characters, the scenes….great first read from a new author to me!

I’ve wanted her from the first moment I saw her. But Lauren would never approve. Ellie is my sister’s best friend. But damn, I can’t get her out of my mind. No matter how many women I sleep with, she still haunts me. I can’t get her out of my system.
When a plan is set into motion, what consequences will it bring?

RELEASE DATE: September 24, 2019

This is my first official read by author, and heck I can’t resist a Friend’s Brother/Sister romance. I mean something about that slow burn and friendship!!

Everything about it, from Derek who was so beyond arrogant but in a handsome way that you just really NEED him. I don’t know how else to explain it, he wasn’t MEAN arrogant just the confident kind. Absolutely love a hero that is upfront and vulgar. Ellie was sweet, sassy and just plain beautiful! Their chemistry was OFF THE CHARTS, i think Derek met him match!

Ellie my heart goes out to her a little, she has been looking for love for so long she gave up, convinced herself that she should just do meaningless affairs. But she couldn’t deny her feeling towards and for Derek. She didn’t know there could be anything him being her best friend’s older brother. Derek does kind of shit on that idea too, that was OUCH! But in the end, when two souls are meant…noting can stop it, right?!
