NEW to me author and books. Author contacted me for a read/review & after reading more information on it, I was all too happy to read. The blurb really got me hooked by the story kept me going.
I am going to start with the hero and heroine’s names: Cash King and Tiger Lyons if that doesn’t crack you up, I don’t know. This was a rom-com but with SO MUCH DEPTH! Cash not only was funny, but charming, sexy and carried a huge chip on his shoulder…while Tiger was sweet, funny, adorable and very insecure. It felt like a 2nd chance not just for them but for themselves..really enjoyed readying their story. The tone was great I connected right away, the characters and side were relatable and fun to read along with the events. I really am glad I gave this a chance, thank you to the author for my ARC. I will be adding and reading more books by this author.
Tiger is home for me. A safe place where I’m loved for just being me.

BREAKING NEWS: The Bad Boy of Baseball, Maddox Paige, is totally and utterly whipped. Okay, that might not be the headlines in the newspaper this morning, but it’s the reality of my current situation. It all started a month ago when I received a call from my best friend, Kinsley.

I’m rapidly falling head over cleats in love with my best friend, my roommate, and my number one fan. And she has no idea . . .
RELEASE DATE: June 11, 2020
Not my first read by the author and I have read most of her books!! I was excited about this one because a mix of Meghan’s writing and rom-com…such a huge sucker for good rom-com’s and this one took the cake for sure!!
Maddox Paige is not what I expected, yes he looks like the bad boy, sleeping with a new girl every night type of man who has it all but he has the BIGGEST heart and when he is sweet, boy will your tooth hurt! I loved LOVED Maddox with Kinsley *sigh* and *swoon* their friendship is beautiful. Kinsley is the type of woman that will bat for you no matter what, she is loyal to the core and that’s why there wasn’t a single thing I did not like about her, all her actions are pure. Maddox’s past is heartbreaking, but Kindley really is there for him in all the ways possible. When their lines are blurred, things heat up and that slow burn will burn very bright! Like I said one of my favorite rom-com’s and hero’s!

Dating is hard. Dating in a small town? Impossible. Leave it to my little brother to come back home announcing he knocked up his fiancée and the wedding has been moved…to next month. When he tries to set me up with one of his football buddies, I tell him I’ll be bringing my own plus-one. Only problem? I’m hopelessly single. Enter Sullivan Scott, AKA my hero. We strike a deal: he’ll pretend to be my boyfriend, and I’ll use my mechanic skills to help him fix his boat. That’s it. No funny business, and definitely no feelings involved. Sully’s quiet and reserved, and I’ve been told I’m too much to handle on a good day. We’re opposites, and neither of us is looking for anything serious. I’m certain we can keep this strictly platonic…
RELEASE DATE: June 4, 2020
Not my first read by the author and I have pretty much read every book of hers including all the ones in this series. And let’s just say I’ve been waiting for Sullivan’s story so hard! Best meet ever haha already loved this from the get go. Teagan has a talent for ROM-COM’s that have enough of everything else including romance that you will love it from the first chapter!
These two are opposite yet very alike. The heroine is a tom-boy that isn’t looking for a relationship and the hero is a easy-going smooth sexy man that isn’t looking for anything either. They were brought together by an incident and here they are living the lie that keeps getting bigger and bigger. Only when the lie get’s blurred for the both of them, they think they can keep it in check…but things never work out how you want them too.
I really loved these two together. The hero kind of fit so well with the heroine and her quirky ways. And I will not get yout oo excited about the sexy scenes because OH. MY. GOD. yes!! Another fantastic read!

Not my first read by either author, I read Audrey’s book when I first started many moons ago and Kylie wasn’t too far after that so i am familiar with their writing style and all. And yes I have loved every book I’ve read by them!
What a sweet and fun story! I was hooked from the get-go. Everything actual happening was right on spot and the rest just flowed very well. The combo of author’s here is unreal because they both are very different but when together you get the best of both worlds. I really hope we get more from the ladies!!

RELEASE DATE: April 21, 2020
Not my first read by the author, she is a top favorite one as a matter of fact. I also have read the other books in the series. I was little skeptical about this one, because it’s Piper the strong, tom-boy, self sufficient, funny and again STRONG heroine. Those tend to turn me off, sadly it did but only for a few pages, I knew the way MF writes heroines that they are the good kind of strong. So, I absolutely devoured the book after a few pages!.
I really loved them together. Their banter, easy going friendship and sizzling feeling they were both trying to deny for one another. Stolen moments is what this book is all about for me, it feels a little forbidden and new and exciting, I loved watching them dodge each other all while really wanting to explore. My heart melted with this one, when there is so much happening Piper *sigh* her big heart will make you fall in love with her from the bat and Harley, as much as a jokester he is, when he lets go…absolutely BEST BOOKBOYFRIEND. Everything about this book, and I know I’ve said this before about one of her books but this is how amazing she is…about every single book I’ve read by MF I have loved! This one is just special, beautiful, sweet, SWOONY, romantic, fun and sexy! Everything you’d want in a friends to romance book!

Three things Lynsey Jones knows about the hot doctor: he’s grouchy, an arrogant jerk, and strangely obsessed with pie.

“I wish I could be charming. Maybe then Dr. Dick and I would’ve ended up in the sack together instead of him threatening to call for a psych evaluation.”
Not my first read by the author, I just adore and love Amy…from her IG story posts to her books, always fun. This one, little different but in the best way. I fell in love from the first pages. Always something about a enemy-to when done right that get’s em going!
Little bitter sweet about this book, I started writing this review when i was about half way through the book. The beginning really captivated me, and i loved the banter and jumping right into enemy-to. A good laugh always with Amy’s books. This one actually had me going for it to be a little more serious, i wont lie there were moments of ‘Lynsey being immature’ but it wasn’t enough to make me stop reading. I do have to get this off my chest, i kind of was OKAY with Dean the male friend but by mid way, I really did not like him…reason: he is one way with the heroine and another with the hero, I just couldn’t enjoy him. Alright aside from that, the hero is PARTICULAR (dry humor – and btw this is in a good way, sexy broody and dry humor worked for him!). A doctor, early 30s , smart, sexy and knows his way with words. A particular humor that seems to clash with Lynsey but yet bond them together. I will also say that I was kind of missing something; maybe more of Lynsey wanting to understand why he is the way he is. They banter a lot but I was looking for that connection a little more. I’ll be back with more once I’ve finished the other half of this.
2nd 50% of the book I was hoping i didn’t have to jump into these words and explanation, but i want anyone that reads my review to understand why. Linsey to me tittered on the line of being an adult and being an adult but immature. There were instances where i found her funny and it was appropriate but then scenarios where it was really immature of what she had said or done and it slightly turned me off more each time. Now granted it was maybe meant to be more light and fun but i was expecting a little something else, so that’s on me and my feelings on the heroine’s tone. Confirmation on not liking Dean one bit – CONFIRMED.. twice. don’t like him anymore, his time and actions, it’s not funny anymore and just No Dean please! *cringe* I want to address the flow and transitions because at times i was hot and cold, for example: one chapter ending in something rather serious between hero and heroine, then beginning of next chapter they are together just like normal (another scenario), i guess I’m just trying to say that i got emotional in the ending and the next start we are back to just normal, so you can see why that’s got me got and cold.
All in all if you’re still here after me writing a whole novella about this review, I want to say that I do love Amy’s books, they really are fun and light…the issues I had with it as always are my opinion and feelings towards reading this sweet story. I would still very much recommend this book and series, what I did love was the hero and heroine together throughout all this, aside form everything they really seemed to be two pees in a pot, polar opposite on the outlook of life but meshed really well together. The epilogue, okay that had me almost balling my eyes out it was sweet!

Ford Spurlock has known Ashe Trammel since they were babies. He’s also done his level best to stay away from her because every time he gets to within five feet of her, they’re fighting like cats and dogs. Ashe is the apple of her father’s eye. The motorcycle club princess that was never to be harmed in any way—or touched for that matter. And he’s always resented the fact that she could get away with things that he couldn’t. Things that she then blames on him and he always gets punished for. Fast forward to adulthood, and Ashe is still off limits. Still driving him insane. Still…beautiful. She never misses an opportunity to give him hell, either. That has to be why he agrees to do a photoshoot for KPD SWAT that’ll benefit her charity even when he’d rather shoot himself in the foot with his duty weapon. Ashe never thought he’d agree.
Honestly, she thought she’d ask him, he’d say no, and that’d be the end of it. She never realized that she’d leave his photo up in her cubicle, and it’d be the last thing that she saw every night as she locked her office door. When they were kids, Ford used to be that boy that threw dirt at her and pulled her hair. Now, he’s the same Ford Spurlock, only a whole lot sexier. And a lot harder to say no to. When he challenges her to one date, she has no other recourse but to agree. What she didn’t agree to was falling in love with Mr. March. Or wanting to give him everything she had to give.

Not my first read by the author and I have read the first book in this series. This one, from the blurb I KNEW I would love because Ford and Ashe were an anticipated couple by me, ever since book one. This did NOT disappointing!
These two were unforgettable. They have know each other since they were little, always used to hate on one another, yell, push, shove…the typical kids stuff. When they got to the teenage years, things started to change for Ashe and every girl Ford went through, she felt that. Until that one girl, that kind of changed everything for Ford too. Going on as they did, always bickering, fighting, daring each other, getting into trouble until a bet. A bet that turns it all around.
Watch these two skirt around each other only to realize that the love part of their love/hate relationship out-wins. I really loved this from the beginning, it’s one of those reads that sticks with you for a long time. I am looking forward to more in this series for sure.

NEW to me author & books! I was also lucky to have received a cute little package from the author that contained the gorgeous paperback and more.
I was going in blind with new authors and I really really enjoyed the main characters, very much! They were mature which are my type! This was all the types of cute meets rom-com and friends-to…very very sweet. The hero and heroine get together after a wrong package was send with some rather intimate items, which was half the fun of the story. The other half is the main characters being together, and without giving away too much….I will say that there are a lot of twist and turns and surprises, it kept me engaged the whole time. Would definitely read more by the author. P.S. SEXY FIREFIGHTER ALERT!!
