Release Blitz: You Again by Lauren Layne

They HAVE to stop meeting like this. After a disastrous meet-cute turns into repeated meetings, a flighty free-spirit and a stodgy rule-follower come to realize that one they can’t get away from … is the one they can’t live without.

You Again by Lauren Layne is now live!

Mackenzie ‘Mac’ Austin just wants what any modern, commitment-phobic woman in New York wants: a no-strings-attached hook-up, steamy enough to brag about over mimosas the next morning. What she doesn’t want is her dating app’s latest suggestion: preppy, corporate Thomas Decker. So, obviously, she rejects the guy without a second thought. There’s just one snag: he’s sitting next to her, so he witnessed her do it. And now he’s calling her out.

After the initial embarrassment, Mac is determined not to let it bother her, but Fate has other plans – and Thomas isn’t going anywhere. First, he pops up as her new boss. And then he reappears as her best friend’s soon-to-be brother-in-law.

As the not-so meet cutes add up, Mac is sure that uptight Thomas is the last man that a free-spirit like her should want. Only the more time she spends with him, the more Mac realizes that the man she can’t get away from has become the same one that she wants to keep close…

Release Blitz: Tease by Melanie Harlow

I didn’t mean to say I was engaged to a hot billionaire–it just slipped out.

TEASE, an all new steamy fake engagement, small town romantic comedy from USA Today and #1 Amazon bestselling author Melanie Harlow, is now available!

I didn’t mean to say I was engaged to a hot billionaire–it just slipped out.

In my defense, I’d had a really bad haircut, a really strong drink, and I was trying to save face in front of the Mean Girl at my high school reunion.

Lucky for me, I happen to know a hot billionaire. Hutton French and I have been friends forever, and even though big social gatherings are not his thing, I called him from the coat closet and begged him for a favor–show up and play my fake fiancé for the night.

Except that word of our engagement spreads like wildfire. Our families are ecstatic. We’re front page news. My little food blog is launched into the stratosphere.

Of course, I offer to set the record straight right away, but Hutton wants to give it a little time–the phony engagement will keep his matrimony-mad mother and every matchmaking granny in town off his back.

He even suggests I move in with him to make the ruse more real.

And we don’t stop there.

We practice kissing. Undressing each other. Saying things–and doing things–we’d never dare if we weren’t pretending. Because it’s all for show, right? We’re just role-playing. Hutton doesn’t want a real relationship, and I don’t want to get hurt. But the more time we spend faking it, the more I start to wonder.

Could Hutton French and I actually be right for each other, or is it all just one big tease?

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.
