Two Ali Hazelwood Novella Reviews

Under One Roof releases on Kindle on May 3, 2022. It is currently already available on Amazon’s Audible Platform.

Mara receives news that she has inherited a house in Washington, D.C. which is perfect because she is about to start a new job at the EPA and needs a place to live. Unfortunately, there is a small problem. She has only inherited half of it. Liam also owns half of it which isn’t great news for Mara because they clash right away. He wants to buy her out. She isn’t letting go of the house that means so much to her as it came to her via one relative that actually meant the world to her. But Liam isn’t backing down either. Soon Mara is blasting Disney lyrics and Liam is making omelets at 1:00AM. Will they figure out what the real problem is before it’s too late?

Under One Roof is another compelling romance from Ali Hazelwood. I admit, I’m a bit of a fangirl for her books. She has a writing style that I find very appealing. Mara is a fun protagonist who suffers from the same short-sightedness when it comes to love as most of Ali Hazelwood’s protagonists. Clearly from their first meeting, Liam and Mara have the hots for each other. Their story starts from when Liam makes his move and then shows flashbacks from their first meeting to how they end up as friends. I liked how Mara and Liam supported each other in their jobs especially as neither is fully happy with what they are doing for their careers so far.

Under One Roof has some sexy bits too! It’s a fast-paced novella! I didn’t listen to it so I can’t talk about the quality of narration but from just a reading point of view, it’s a fun and sexy story.

Stuck With You releases June 7 on Kindle. It is currently available on the Amazon Audible platform.

Do you enjoy romances where the main characters are stuck in an elevator together? Well then you are in for a treat because Ali Hazelwood does justice to this well-known romance trope.

Sadie is stuck with Erik in an elevator which is bad, bad, bad news. They had one great night together until Sadie learned how Erik went behind her back for a job and stole a client she was trying to woo.

Erik has different memories of that night however and he is worried about their night for a different reason. With Sadie stuck in the elevator with him, he is determined to get to the bottom of their falling out. But that is easier said than done because Sadie is determined to ignore Erik and their past as much as possible.

What I liked most about this story is seeing Sadie and Erik work through their past together and get to the true bottom of what went wrong. Both are coming at it from different viewpoints, so readers get to learn a little bit more about both characters as they analyze what went wrong. This is my personal favorite of the two novellas so far. I just really enjoyed the close contact in the elevator and how they had such different memories of what tore them apart. I won’t give too much away but, Erik in particular is just wonderful. It was easy to see why Sadie fell for him so quickly.

Both of these novellas are a lot of fun! STEM is involved through the careers of both women though it isn’t quite as strong of an element as in Ali Hazelwood’s full-length story. Still, these novellas are a great price and feature strong romances. Worth reading!

Thank you to Berkley for ARCs of these stories.

Review: Mr. Wrong Number by Lynn Painter

The struggle for me in reading has definitely continued into 2022. I keep trying new books and giving up. Fortunately, Mr. Wrong Number kept my attention very well!

Olivia Beck has just moved in with her brother because she started a small fire that went out of control. (It was not her fault. You’ll get the full specifics as the story continues.) Unfortunately, this is just one more failure that makes it seem like, to her family, that her screw-up personality continues. Living with her brother isn’t ideal but it’s a safe place to crash as she tries to find a new job and a new place to live. Unfortunately, also living with her brother is her brother’s best friend, Colin Beck. Olivia and Colin have always clashed.

When Olivia receives a wrong number text, it begins a flirtatious texting relationship that Olivia and her mysterious texting man both enjoy. Unfortunately, Colin figures out who his mystery woman is and tries to put a stop to it. It’s not that easy.

There is great sexual tension in this book. Colin and Olivia definitely have that enemy-to-lovers trope I enjoy! But what really took their romance to another level for me is how Colin is one of the few people in Olivia’s life who supports her. Sure, it doesn’t happen overnight but he really proves to be a great sounding board as she tries to figure out where to take her career. Of course, there is a big “conflict” at the end that throws a wrench into their growing relationship. I expected it given the premise of the story.

I liked seeing Olivia grow. I really disliked her family (talk about being cruel when someone is down–and I feel like this was never properly addressed). Olivia and Colin have an unexpected beginning but their relationship grows from something fun and light to a more serious but equally enjoyable love.

Mr. Wrong Number is available now. The Kindle book is kind of expensive but if you can find this one at the library it’s worth checking out!

Release Blitz: The Last Eligible Billionaire by Pippa Grant

The Last Eligible Billionaire by Pippa Grant is now live!

Emotionally unavailable doesn’t even begin to describe my new fake boyfriend. He’s cold. He’s distant. He has more defenses than a nuclear missile silo. And he’s the ultimate catch of the century. At least, according to his bank statement.

My job’s simple: Keep Hayes Rutherford’s matchmaking relatives and all interested ladies away from the cranky, grumpy, walled-off heir to my favorite movie empire, and in return, he won’t ruin my life over a teensy, tiny little misunderstanding.

But the more I sneak past Hayes’s walls and fences, the more I realize that while we might be from different worlds, we have more in common than either of us expected. The man under all the glitz, glamour, and dollar signs could be the real love of my life.

But you know what they say about fake dating a billionaire—it’s all fun and games until the scandals start.

The Last Eligible Billionaire is a swoony, laugh-out-loud romance featuring a botched wax job, a woman in over her head, a man in over his heart, and the sweetest misguided dog to ever play matchmaker…or at least make sure these two anti-love birds never have clothes when they get out of the shower.

Review: My Favorite Dish by Kenzie Reed

If you enjoy stories set in small communities with characters that go from normal to perhaps a bit more eccentric, My Favorite Dish by Kenzie Reed may be a good fit for you!

Riley has finalized her divorce and is moving in a new direction in her personal life. She has inherited a big hotel on a very sleep and small Florida island from her beloved aunt. Riley is very excited to start an artists colony in the hotel, a dream she shared with her aunt. Unfortunately, after being in the house, she starts to hear noises. Heading into the lobby area she is confronted with a naked man.

Sawyer Hendricks, a chef as famous for his temper as his food, has just bought a big hotel on a small Florida island. He plans on turning it into another world-renowned restaurant. He does not expect to have to fight someone over the true ownership of the house. He also doesn’t expect feral parrots.

Riley and Sawyer both have grand plans for the property. Reality and the mystery of how they both have come to “own” this hotel are about to intrude. They will definitely have to put their heads together to figure it out.

My Favorite Dish is a sweet story. It didn’t blow my mind but I thought it was enjoyable. I liked the ambiance of the sleepy Florida island they are now calling home. I really liked the small child character, Mary, and her interest in the parrots.

Riley and Sawyer do have decent chemistry which helps. I think where Kenzie Reed really shined in her writing is the relationship between Riley and her best friend, Alex. Their phone calls are very amusing!

My Favorite Dish has strong appeal for readers who love small town (with a kick!) romances. I like that both characters have big goals and dreams. It was very interesting to watch them come to fruition throughout the course of the story.

Release Date: February 17

Running away from a disaster of a divorce? Starting my life over from scratch?  My friends and family have ideas.

 

Open an artist’s colony on a beautiful coastal island, they said. It’ll be fun, they said.  “They” haven’t met Sawyer Hendricks, the gorgeous, growly celebrity chef who claims he owns the dream hotel that I just inherited.  

 

“They” haven’t been terrorized by a flock of foul-mouthed feral parrots.  “They” haven’t been treated to the sight of Sawyer’s magnificent backside as he hogs the only working shower in our – I mean my – waterfront mansion.  “They” haven’t run smack up against a cranky gang of geriatric islanders who will stop at nothing to ensure that life on Rocky Shoals never changes.

Then again, “they” haven’t experienced what it feels like to be kissed by a man who has a Ph.D. in giving lip service.  “They” haven’t been spoon fed tiramisu by moonlight.  

 

So, maybe “they” are on to something after all…or maybe this whole escapade is just a recipe for disaster.

Review: The Bachelor on the Shelf by Jana Aston

The Bachelor on the Shelf proved to be my favorite story in this second go-round in the world of Reindeer Falls. Carter Sheppard is a baseball star who has relocated for the time being to his hometown of Reindeer Falls to pick up the dog he inherited. Unfortunately, he has a little bit of bad press going on right now and of course, this being a romance novel, the answer is definitely a fake fiancée! I like this formula in romances and I enjoyed it here too.

Lexi just wants to take care of the dog she has come to love. Unfortunately, Carter isn’t making that easy since he now inherited the dog. He’s willing to give her “custody” again if she play along as his fake fiancée.

Jana Aston writes a very sexy and perfectly sweet Christmas novella in The Bachelor on the Shelf. I liked the chemistry between the two leads and the history Lexi had of crushing on Carter back in high school. This is a fairly straightforward romance but Jana Aston gives it some spark and zing with fun dialog, a great secondary character in the dog, and well, plenty of holiday romance to prove their engagement is “real” to the public. And the epilogue (I’m a fan of epilogues) was A+ material to this reader!

Blurb:

My name is Carter Sheppard and I actually like Christmas and my Christmas-themed hometown of Reindeer Falls. In fact, when I learn I have to return home in order to collect an inheritance—my uncle’s dog—it puts life into perspective for me.

Sure, playing professional baseball is great. But it won’t last forever and every player needs a long-term game plan.

And I just found mine. Wrapped up in the feisty, bespectacled package of the town librarian.

Unfortunately, she thinks I’m a player in all aspects of the word, but I’ve got a plan to win her over. Starting with a fake engagement…

About the Author:

Jana Aston likes cats, big coffee cups and books about billionaires who deflower virgins. She wrote her debut novel while fielding customer service calls about electrical bills, and she’s ever grateful for the fictional gynecologist in Wrong that readers embraced so much she was able to make working in her pajamas a reality. Jana’s novels have appeared on the NYT, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists, some multiple times. She likes multiples.
