From the #1 New York Times Bestselling author of FULL PACKAGE and BIG ROCK, comes a hot & hilarious new standalone romantic comedy…

Let’s be honest, ladies. A good man is a lot like the perfect car. You want a hot body, an engine that purrs, and superior performance under the hood…for the best joy ride of your life.

I’m at your service. Ready to go all night long.

But then a wildly sexy brunette appears in my life and throws a wrench in all my plans. She’s fiery, she’s talented, she’s gorgeous, and I’d really like to know what makes her engine hum.

Henley also happens to be my biggest rival, and now we’re forced to work together every day on the most important custom car build of my career. The trouble is I can’t quite figure out if she wants to kick me in the lug nuts or beg me to give her a good, hard fuel injection. Until one night that question is answered on the hood of a sports car when she calls out my name three times. And we can’t seem to put on the brakes.

If sleeping with the enemy is a bad idea, how much more dangerous would it be to fall in love with her?

~ 3.5 – 4 Healing Stars ~

Lost Rider is a story about hope, healing and finding love again.

This is my first Harper Sloan book and I enjoyed this book. It didn’t WOW me but I thought it was an enjoyable story and the characters were likable. I’m a sucker for a cowboy love story 😉

I will say that I thought this story had a lot of promise at being a 5 star read when I first started the book. It is a well written book and the author did a great job letting the readers feel all the emotions the characters were feeling. I loved the angst and turmoil she gave in the first half of the book but once I got past the 50% mark the book lost its spark and it just turned into an OK book for me. I would’ve liked to see some more drama or angst added to the story to make me want to keep turning the pages. The second half of the book was a really sweet love story between two people who were lost and found their way back to each other.

In this book we follow the journey of Maverick Davis and Leighton James. Maverick and Leighton have known each other all their lives and have been friends just as long. Over time Leighton’s feelings of friendship turn to something more and so do Maverick’s. But Maverick doesn’t have an easy upbringing and all he wants to do is leave town and not look back. To follow his dream of being the best bull rider on the circuit. But to do that he has to cut all ties….even the ones he has with Leighton. But when tragedy strikes and calls Maverick home 10 years later, will Leighton be able to forgive him?? Will Maverick be able to overcome all of his anger and resentment?? Can these two find the HEA they deserve?? You’ll need to read Lost Rider to get all those answers.

Lost Rider is a standalone novel told in Dual POV’s. I think this could be the start of a series, because Harper could be giving us books about Maverick’s siblings. But this is a complete story with NO cliffhanger. As I said before I thought this book was well written and flowed really well between past and present tense. One of my only complaints was I thought there was a little too much inner monologue going on with Leighton and Maverick that it slowed the pace of the story down. I would’ve liked more interaction between all the characters.

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a second chance love story with a swoony Cowboy Hero!! Also if you are a fan of Harper Sloan’s then you don’t want to miss this new book of hers.






I should tell Quinn and Clay that he’s here. But one look at him and it’s like the last ten years have never passed and I’m back at the bonfire, the awkward high schooler uncomfortable in her own skin. Marching away from him in the woods. It was the last time I saw him. How is it possible that he can affect me this much after all this time?

He hasn’t noticed me, not with his head bowed, so I quickly turn around and focus on Pastor John as he finishes up his prayer. Him being here means nothing. I should be happy that I remember the pain from that night so well, it will make keeping my walls up around him so much easier.

“On behalf of the Davis family, I want to thank everyone for coming today. At this time, the family has asked for some time alone as they say their good-byes. They wanted me to remind everyone that the PieHole will be opening up for a few hours tonight starting at five for anyone that wishes to join them.”

I keep my arm around Quinn, not looking back to where I saw Maverick. I can hear the church slowly emptying and I feel a frown pull at my lips. I had hoped that when everyone started to leave that he would have come up front to be with his family, but so far, the pew we’re in is still empty save for the three of us. We sit and wait for everyone to leave, something that Clay had asked Pastor John to make arrangements for in place of the customary recessional, knowing that no one in this town would really mean a word of it anyway. Plus, I know Quinn is having a hard time. Regardless of the fact that she wasn’t the closest with her father, she was really counting on this—Maverick home. She’s still shaking in my arms, but when I look over at Clay I realize his silence isn’t because of the heaviness of Buford’s death, but instead anger over his brother’s absence that has started to build to a boil. I fear that he’s seconds away from tipping over the edge.

I stand when Clay and Quinn do, but hang back at the edge of the row we had been sitting in as they meet Pastor John and gather their father’s ashes. I can’t wait to get out of these heels. If it would have been acceptable to wear my boots, I would have, but Quinn would have killed me. As it is, I feel like I can’t take a deep breath with how tight my dress is against my chest. I never wear tight shirts. I haven’t since my boobs became beasts of their own right. I’m too busy fiddling with the straps of my dress, trying desperately to get some of the pressure against my chest to ease up so I could take a deep breath, when I heard Quinn gasp.

“Mav!” Next thing I know she’s running past where I’m standing, her black hair streaming in the air behind her as she speeds forward right into her brother’s arms. Clay moves to stand next to me and I look up to meet his green eyes, the questions he isn’t vocalizing dancing in their emerald depths. He’s not stupid and I’m doing a crappy job at hiding the memories haunting me right now. He gives me a small smile, shifting his hold on the urn to wrap his free arm around me and pulls me into a strong hold.

“You’re shakin’,” he says against my temple and I just nod.

“I’m good, Clay. Go see your brother.”

“I’m fine right where I am, sugar.”

I keep my eyes to the ground, focusing on his worn boots instead of looking up, hating myself for making this moment about me when I should be focused on them. Like it or not, I can’t fight the feelings that being near him bring me. I’m that stupid, naive sixteen-year-old all over again. “Let’s get out of here,” he says after a few silent seconds. I look up and give him a smile, hoping that it looks a hell of a lot braver than I feel. Inside I feel like I might puke.

“You think I could have a second with my family?”

My head shoots up at the coldness I hadn’t anticipated in Maverick’s voice. He’s not focused on me, though, instead looking at his brother with a hard expression and one brow raised upward.

“Mav!” Quinn gasps and he moves his attention from his brother to her.

“Sorry, Quinn, but I’m thinkin’ that Clay’s lady friend would understand that this should be a moment for our family and give us time alone.”

“I’ll just—”

“Don’t you dare finish that sentence, sugar,” Clay all but spits through clenched teeth and drops his arm to take a step forward. “You’ve got something to say, Mav, then say it.”

“Nothing to say, Clayton, I just think it would be nice for your girlfriend to give us some space.”

“My girlfriend,” he parrots sarcastically, his deep voice vibrating in anger.

“Mav.” Quinn attempts to butt in, but stops when Maverick leaves her side and turns to stalk out of the church. I should find it comical that he obviously didn’t recognize me, or hell, maybe he did and he’s just picking up where he left off ten years ago in the middle of the dark woods. I take a deep breath. “It’s okay. He’s right. Y’all need some time as a family. I’ll head over to the PieHole and start settin’ up for tonight.”

Quinn brushes a tear from her cheek and just shakes her head. I look at Clay to see him staring in the direction that his brother just left.

“You’re family,” he finally says, not looking in my direction.

“Clay, really, it’s okay. It’s been a long time since y’all were back together and I don’t need to be there for that reunion. It sucks that it takes all of this to finally bring him home, but he’s here and y’all need to make up for a lot of time lost.”

“Shut up, Leighton.”

“Don’t, Clay.”

“Don’t what? You’ve got every right to be here. You’re just as much a part of our family as he is. Hell, maybe even more so than he is at this point. So just shut up, come with us, and ignore him.”

I shake my head, the fight instantly leaving my sails, knowing I would be arguing until the end of time if I

pressed this issue.

“I can’t believe he doesn’t even recognize you,” Quinn whispers.

Title: Royal Affair

Author: Marquita Valentine

Publication Date: April 18th, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance


Royal Affair, a sexy all-new STANDALONE from Marquita Valentine is available now!!!


A sheltered princess goes wild—and makes the best mistake of her life—when she falls for a roguish reporter in this fun, sexy romance from the bestselling author of Royal Scandal.

Online muckraker Brooks Walker has a reputation for exposing the political elite. Now he’s set his sights on the Sinclair siblings, who’ve been embroiled in their fair share of drama ever since their exile to North Carolina. But Brooks has never been afraid to get his hands dirty—until he meets a royal wallflower at a charity ball who makes him reconsider everything. Is Brooks feeling guilty because he knows all the sordid details of her family’s history? Or because he’s putting their relationship first, before his journalistic integrity?

As the “spare” twin, Princess Charlotte has always been the responsible one. So when her sister finally agrees to fulfill her duty as queen, Charlotte gives herself permission to break a few rules by flirting with the very off-limits CEO of Walker Media. Brooks is the worst sort of man to start an affair with, but Charlotte just can’t help it. The trouble is, since she’s no good at playing games, soon she’s tiara over heels in love. And when Brooks comes clean, Charlotte must decide whether his confession is worth a royal pardon.





“I see.” He kisses me again, tenderly. Sweetly. It’s so confusing that I turn my face away from his.

“What do you see?”

“That you’ve been neglected more than I thought.”

“I don’t want your pity.”

He nuzzles the side of my neck, his mouth going lower and lower. “The last thing I feel for you is pity. Show me how you feel, Princess. Take my cock and put it where you want it the most—your hands, your pussy, your mouth … your ass.”

“You are so naughty,” I gasp, and he laughs.

“I came prepared for that, too,” he says in a low voice. “Up to you, though. Everything we do tonight is up to you.”

“Then I want to do this.” Guiding the head of his cock into me, I pause and say, “You’re very big.”

“All the better to fuck you with,” he says, but for some reason, he pulls out. “A real cock is a million times better than a magic wand.” He winks at me, and I want to sink into the mattress. Leaning over, he grabs something above my head before looking at me again. “What?”

I scowl harder at him, even though I’m very pleased he remembered protection when I didn’t.

Gosh, Charlotte, could you be any more idiotic?

“Don’t quote fairy tales to me.”

He drops his head beside my ear and whispers, “You love fairy tales, sweetheart.”

“But you did some creative talking and added a vibrator to it!”

“I can always go home.” After tearing open the package, he rolls the condom down his hard length. He strokes himself, his big hand wrapped around his large cock. My core pulses and throbs in anticipation.

Mesmerized, I lick my lips. “No.”

~ 5 When the Villian is the Hero Stars ~

Ever wonder what happens to the villain of a story?? Do they ever get a HEA??

Well Royal Affair will answers those questions for you. I loved that this was a slightly different type story in that the Hero of the story was also the villain. Although I have to be honest…never thought of Brooks as the villain. I fell in love with him from the very beginning. I truly thought he was the perfect match for Charlotte.

There is something about this series by Marquita Valentine that I absolutely love!! These books are fun, entertaining, sexy and captivating. I have loved all the characters and storylines. I love that she creates a story that takes her readers to a different place and makes you feel a part of the story. I also love that there isn’t an over abundance of drama in these stories. It’s all about the characters and what they bring to the story that keeps you turning the pages. The length of each story is perfect. The flow and pace of this story worked well for these characters and their story.

Royal Affair is the second standalone novel in this series. It’s told in Dual POV. Even though this is a standalone I would recommend reading this series in order because the storyline kind of carries over into this story. Yes this story is a whole new storyline for Charlotte and Brooks, but there are characters that carry over and things you learn about Charlotte and her family in Book 1 that carry into this book. I don’t think anyone would be lost if this book is read first but this will spoil things for Book 1 if read first.

We met Charlotte and Brooks in Book 1 but we really get to know them in this book. This is their story :). Charlotte is a twin and the second in line to be queen after her twin Imogen. Charlotte is the wall flower of the two girls and has no ambition to ever be queen. She suffers from severe anxiety and doesn’t like the spot light. Brooks is a journalist who exposed Charlotte’s family history, so to say he isn’t liked by the Sinclairs is putting it mildly. He is drawn to Charlotte but also wants to get close to get her deepest secrets. He is all about getting a head of the competition and making a name for himself. Charlotte just wants to experience some freedom so she suggests an affair with a person she shouldn’t be with. What happens then is the journey these two take to becoming better people and getting everything they want.

Can Brooks really change who is for Charlotte?? What happens when information lands in his lap…can he overlook it for love?? Will these two get their HEA?? Read this fun, sexy and entertaining read to find out.

I would totally recommend this book/series to anyone who loves an enemies to lovers story with a Royal twist.

A Bleeding Stars Stand-Alone Novel

Coming May 22nd



Cover: RBA Designs

Photographer: Wander Aguiar

Models: Tyler Halligan & Madelyn DeSantis


From NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author A.L. Jackson comes the next seductive, unforgettable Bleeding Stars Stand-Alone Novel…

Zachary Kennedy has never been known as a fighter, but he’ll never regret fighting for her…

I’m Zee Kennedy.

Quiet. Reserved. Predictable.

When my brother died, everyone thought I was just the good guy who stepped up to take his place in the band.

No one knew what I was hiding. The one thing I’ve been fighting for.

For six years, I’ve never lost focus.

Not until one chance encounter with Alexis Kensington.

Now she’s become my greatest temptation.

I knew better than to touch her, but now that I’ve had a taste, I can’t get enough.

Her kiss becomes my air. Her body my salvation.

She needed a savior and somehow she became mine.

Taking her was a betrayal. But keeping her means risking everything.

One look at Alexis Kensington, and I know she’s worth the fight.

Will my past continue to keep me down or will I finally find the strength to pull myself up and Stand…











Tingles rushed, my words nothing more than pants as he kissed down through the valley of my breasts. “Maybe you’re just remembering who you are. Who you were always supposed to be.”

I felt as if I was so close to knowing him. This boy who’s beauty had been muted.

He groaned, half pained, half demand. “You almost make me feel like him.”  

Yanking me away from the railing, he hoisted me high. My legs were wrapped high around his chest as he carried me the rest of the way to the upper loft. To this magical place where twilight touched every corner, whispered its secrets and danced in its shadows.

He’d barely tossed me to the bed when he was over me, shoving up my dress and ripping it free, my fingers just as frantic as I tore his shirt over his head. I searched him, hands racing across his chest, feeling the wild beat of his conflicted heart, hearing the struggle that whimpered from his spirit.

He angled down and captured my mouth again. He kissed and bit and nipped as he held my face steady in the frame of his hands. Then he edged down, driving me wild with this murmurs of kisses at my jaw and ear and neck.


I writhed, dizziness rushing as I stared up at him towering over me.

His body was brimming with hard, cut muscle. Muscle that jumped and ticked and flexed, as if the desire thrumming in his veins stalked back and forth, a caged predator, searching for a way to be released.

My gaze traveled across the tattoo on his chest.


“Fight for me,” I begged.

house mate_amazonWhat’s sexier than a bad boy? A bad ass man who’s got his shit together.

Max Alexander is nearing thirty-five. He’s built a successful company, and he’s conquered the professional world, but he’s never been lucky in love. Focusing so much time on his business and raising his daughter, adulting has come at the expense of his personal life.

His social skills are shit, his patience is shot, and at times, his temper runs hot.

The last thing he has time for is the recently single, too gorgeous for her own good young woman he hires to take care of his little girl. She’s a distraction he doesn’t need, and besides, there’s no way she’d be interested. But you know what they say about assumptions?

This is book 3 in the Roommates series, but each book can be read as a complete standalone as they all feature new couples to fall in love with.

~ 5 Single Daddy Stars ~

I absolutely LOVE a single dad story!! They have to be my favorite. So of course that makes The House Mate my favorite book so far in Kendall Ryan’s The Roommate Series.

The House Mate is the third standalone novel in this series. It is told from Dual POV. Each of these books in this series are complete standalone novels and don’t have any overlapping characters or storylines. So it doesn’t matter in what order you read them. Now with saying that….I would recommend that you read them ALL!!! This is one of Kendall’s best series yet.

All these books are fun, easy, and truly entertaining reads. And don’t worry there is plenty of sexy times in this book. I love that there isn’t a whole lot of drama in this book. Just a little outside force trying to stir up some stuff, but luckily it is all over fairly quickly. I will say that I thought the Tiffany storyline was left open. I would’ve liked more closure when it came to her. But over all this is a truly enjoyable read. Perfect for a lazy day in the sun 🙂

The House Mate is a single dad storyline with a hint of the forbidden aspect. Being that the nanny is hooking up with her boss. In this book we meet Max and Addison. Max is a single guy who owns a construction business and has always loved the single life and has no ambition to settle down. He is focused on his business and not finding a wife. That all changes when his ex Jenn shows up out of the blue and drops Dylan in his lap. Dylan is his 1 year old daughter. And her mom Jenn just can’t do it anymore and takes off. Leaving Max scrambling to figure out what to do. This is where Addison comes in. She is a young girl who has had her heart broken by her ex Greg and is living with her BFF Lara. Determined to turn her life around she answers an ad in the paper for a nanny. What happens from here is a journey of two people. One who needs to learn to trust again and the other learning to eon his heart and life to new people. Will Addison and Max cross that line and find their HEA?? Read The House Mate to find out.

As with most of Kendall’s books, she is the master of giving her readers a slow build with kindle melting sexual tension. But it is always worth the wait. I thought the pace and flow of this story worked well.

If you need a book to just escape into a world that will make you swoon and your kindle melt, then you need to read this book!! If you are a fan of the single dad romance book, this is one of the best ones I have read. I can’t say it enough….It was truly entertaining. If you are a fan of Kendall’s books you don’t want to miss any of this series!!! They are a MUST READ!!!!

Bombshell, an all-new sexy and swoony standalone from CD Reiss is coming May 1st!


Bombshell by CD Reiss
Publication Date: May 1st, 2017
Publisher: Montlake
Genre: Contemporary Romance





Hollywood bad boy Brad Sinclair always gets his way, whether it’s the role he wants or the bikini-clad model he has to have. But when a bombshell gets dropped in his lap in the form of a dimpled five-year-old from a forgotten relationship, he knows his life is about to change forever.

Cara DuMont isn’t exactly thrilled when she gets assigned to be the nanny for the latest box-office king. She has one rule: no celebrity fathers, especially single ones with devilish good looks and rock-hard abs.

But as soon as Cara meets Brad and his adorable little girl, she knows she’s in for a world of trouble. Because there’s something about the way Brad looks at her that makes her believe that some rules are meant to be broken…





He was tapping on my bedroom window. It was 2:17 in the morning.

I got out of bed, dressed in sweatpants and black T-shirt and slapped the window open. He practically fell through it, adorable in his wet tuxedo and red eyes.

“You’re drunk.”

“I like you. I want you to like me.”

“Go to bed.”

He leaned back out the window, paused. “Do you like me?”

“Against my better judgment, I do.”


He was so drunk he could barely stand.

“Please go to bed.”

He gave me a salute and walked right through a sprinkler, toward the front house. I closed the window. Brad was lying in the grass facedown, arms and legs in a big X, getting sprinkled on.

I could leave him out there.

I could, he deserved it. But I couldn’t.

I put on sneakers and a hoodie and went outside. He was face-first in a mud puddle. The sprinklers had shut off.


He didn’t move. I pulled his arm until he was on his back, then pulled both wrists and pulled forward. If I’m making it sound easy, it wasn’t. I slipped and fell in wet grass, and grunted like a tennis player. But I got him to sitting. Half his gorgeous face was dotted with mud.


No answer. I slapped him. Nothing. Slapped again, harder. He groaned.

Then I pulled my arm back and really hauled off and whacked him.


“You have to wake up. I can’t carry you.”

“That hurt.”

I crouched, getting my shoulder under his arm.

“Okay, I’m going to count to three. On three, stand up.”

“Do you know you’re beautiful?”


“And you smell like a fruit cup.”


He looked at me, the weight of his head tilting his face at an angle to mine.

“You’re the queen of the house.”


We lurched up. Took a step left. Adjusted. Stood steady.

“Can I just sleep here?”

“No. Nicole isn’t going to find your drunk ass on the lawn in the morning. Lean on me.”

We took one step forward, then two. I held his wrist with one hand and his waist with the other. The front of his tuxedo shirt was brown with mud. I got wet wherever his clothes touched me.

“Do you have fantasies, ever?” He hopped onto a new subject as if it was completely natural.

“Like about what?” I asked. His arm around me, his breath soft in my ear. Even his dependence was kind of a fantasy.

“You know what bothers me about fantasies?”

“Watch this chair here. Whoa.” I pulled him left, narrowly missing tripping over a lounger.

“You never know if you’re getting it right,” he said.

I turned to him, and found his eyes taking up my entire field of vision and my nose two inches from his.

“Like when I fantasize about fucking you.”

We almost tripped on the entrance. I swallowed my lungs, stomach, and heart in one gulp. He was drunk. He didn’t mean it. He never thought about fucking me.

Not Brad Sinclair.

He was my boss.

About the Author

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

Title: Game Ender

Series: Game Series #4 – The series finale

Author: BJ Harvey

Genre: Romantic Comedy with Heat

Release Date: April 17, 2017

Cover Designer: Najla Qamber Designs

From USA Today bestselling author BJ Harvey comes the fourth and final book in the Game series and this time it’s the reformed playboy and the single mom.


“You have chlamydia.” 

Three words no man wants to hear.

I’ve always been liberal with my appreciation of the female form, a firm believer in the ‘try before you buy’ principle, but living life to the fullest obviously didn’t end well for me considering the unexpected—and very unwelcome—consequence of my free and easy past. 

After living through the horrendous experience that was informing my recent sexual partners of my acquired ‘condition,’ I made a vow to myself – and a bet with my best friend—that the next woman I sleep with will be the ‘one.’

What I will learn is that even when something happens and the games come to an end, there’s always the chance of something—or someone—crashing in and changing everything. 


So this is my story. It may start with a venereal disease, but I promise you, I’m determined to get my happy ending.

~ 5 Big Whoosh Stars ~

Who would ever think an STD could change your life for the better?? Well read Game Ender and see how it transformed a playboy bachelor into a loving man and father.

Game Ender was a sweet, sexy and romantic read about unconditional love and that blood relations isn’t what makes a family.

This was another GREAT addition to this fabulous series!!! BJ Harvey can do no wrong when it comes to these characters. Every book she gives us I just devour!! I am truly sad to see this series end and knowing I have to say good bye to these characters. I truly have felt a part of their lives over the years.

Game Ender is the fourth and final book in her spin-off Game Series. This book/series can be read as a standalone, you don’t need to read the Bliss Series first or the previous books in the Game series to fully enjoy this book. I would highly recommend reading all the Bliss Series and the Game series before reading this book, but that is because you will then get the full experience of these AMAZING characters.

In Game Ender the couple that we follow are Thomas and Amy. Thomas is the best friend of Cade and a well known playboy. Amy is the best friend of Abi and Mia (both you read about in the other books of this series). I love how Ms. Harvey has weaved such a web with this cast of characters. That is why I highly recommend reading these books in order because their lives are so entangled with each other. I will say though that even if you only read this book…you won’t be lost or confused at all. Ms. Harvey fills in the blanks when need be. Amy has become pregnant and is forced to raise the baby by herself….that is until Thomas steps into the picture and helps her out. Thomas and Amy form a friendship while Thomas also forms a bond with Brody. I loved watching these characters open up to each other and show everyone that blood isn’t always what makes a family.

One thing I have loved about this spin off series, is that we get to reconnect with the characters from the Bliss Series and the previous Game Series books. We get to see what their lives have become since their books have ended.

Each of these books are fun, flirty, enjoyable and extremely sexy 😉 I think Thomas was the swooniest of all the Heroes in the Game Series. Amy talks about the whooshes she gets throughout the story and I know I felt them right along with her. Thomas has stolen a top spot on my book boyfriend list (Right next to Daniel from Temporary Bliss)

As with all of these books in this series, Game Ender, didn’t have a lot of drama, but what drama she did add, was handled well and quick. These books just really make me happy to read and I end with a HUGE smile on my face.

I think what I love the most about this series and BJ Harvey’s books is that she gives us amazing heroines. Her girls are strong, independent and not ashamed of the sexual prowess. No she doesn’t give us sluts or anything but women who like men and aren’t embarrassed to admit it. I also love that she gives us couples who act like adults. Yes they have mountains to climb and obstacles to overcome, but they do it the way you would expect an adult to handle it. Her couples are functional…if that makes sense.

I would again 100% recommend any book of BJ Harvey to any reader. If you are a fan of the fun, sexy and just all around enjoyable read then this is the series to read. If you are a fan of BJ Harvey’s, then you don’t want to miss out on this series or the chance to reconnect with some old friends. If she is a new author to you, dive in and I hope you thoroughly enjoy her books like I have!!!

“I’ve narrowed it down to five reasons why a woman would throw a drink at a man.”

He leans back and crosses his perfectly toned arms over his chest.

“Impart your wisdom, oh wise bartender.” He takes another drink of his beer and—yet again—watching me like a hawk. I wish he’d stop watching me.

My confidence wavers under his intense stare but when I catch a knowing glint in his eye, it riles me up. There’s nothing worse than a guy who hides his unease behind a cocky façade, especially when I know there’s something genuine hiding there.

It’s one of the worst qualities a guy can have. It’s disingenuous and fake and if there’s two things I hate—in anyone—it’s that.

I square my shoulders and stand up straight, deciding to let him have it, putting my hands out in front of me to count on my fingers.

“One, you cheated on her.” He shakes his head, an amused smile playing on his lips.

“Nope. Next.”

“Two, connected to the first, you hooked up with her sister, best friend or mother . . .” He snorts at that one, chuckling under his breath as he shakes his head again.

“Right, then, the last three,” I continue. “Three through five are offending her family/job/friends or outfit, asking her to pay for your date and lastly, giving her an STD.”

His eyes grow wide and he sits bolt upright.

The City’s HOTTEST Cold War is here!


a Love Unexpectedly novel

Lauren Layne

Releasing April 18th, 2017



Sparks fly between a misunderstood New York socialite and a cynical divorce lawyer in this lively standalone rom-com from the USA Today bestselling author of Blurred Lines and Love Story.


Pampered heiress Georgianna Watkins has a party-girl image to maintain, but all the shopping and clubbing is starting to feel a little bit hollow—and a whole lot lonely. Though Georgie would never admit it, the highlights of her week are the mornings when she comes home at the same time as her uptight, workaholic neighbor is leaving to hit the gym and put in a long day at the office. Teasing him is the most fun Georgie’s had in years—and the fuel for all her naughtiest daydreams 


Celebrity divorce attorney Andrew Mulroney doesn’t have much time for women, especially spoiled tabloid princesses who spend more time on Page Six than at an actual job. Although Georgie’s drop-dead gorgeous, she’s also everything Andrew resents: the type of girl who inherited her penthouse instead of earning it. But after Andrew caps one of their predawn sparring sessions with a surprise kiss—a kiss that’s caught on camera—all of Manhattan is gossiping about whether they’re a real couple. And nobody’s more surprised than Andrew to find that the answer just might be yes.

~ 5 Perfectly Ridiculous Stars ~

I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this book!! What an amazing addition to the Love Unexpectedly Series. This was what a true HEA is all about 🙂

This is truly my favorite book of this series!!! I wasn’t sure I was going to like this book going into it, because it is an enemies to lovers story and I have found I have trouble reading those. But this book was just GREAT!!

Truthfully Georgie made this book for me. Yes I liked Andrew and his stiffshirtedness, but Georgie was an amazing heroine. She was fun, sassy, sharp witted and just overall fun to read. She is a girl who doesn’t have to work and can just enjoy the fun loving life she leads. I did like watching her grow as a character also as the story went on. She realized she wanted a little more out of her life, but her true goal was getting that Disney HEA. Now Andrew….he was a tough cookie to crack. He is a famous divorce attorney and overall a very intelligent man. His problem is he lead with his big brain and not his heart. He also grew immensely throughout the story. By the end he won over my heart. I loved the banter between Andrew and Georgie. Even though Andrew could get kind of cruel with his comments (in the beginning) Georgie never let that bring her down….it made her come back more fierce. I couldn’t have been happier with this couple!!

As always Lauren Layne still takes a place on my Favorite Author List. This book is the reason I keep coming back to her books.

Walk Of Shame is the fourth standalone novel in the Love Unexpectedly Series. Each book is a complete standalone and there are no interconnecting characters. So this is a series that can be read out of order. This story is told in Dual POV, but with a twist. Georgie’s POV was in the first person POV and Andrew’s was in the third person POV. I’m not exactly sure why she wrote it that way, but it didn’t diminish my enjoyment of the book at all. I loved that this story kind of reminded me of the Disney movie Enchanted!! I also like that she referenced that movie in this book. It made me want to watch the movie again.

I really liked that this book really focused on Andrew and Georgie and any other characters we met through the story were just there to support the main couple.

If you are a fan of the angsty Enemies to Lovers type story or are a fan of Lauren Layne’s books, you don’t want to miss this gem!!!
