Title: Off the Record

Author: Annmarie Boyle

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Off the Record:

Ever since the day her life flipped upside down, Bridget Hayes obeys a carefully crafted plan. And it works. Or it did. Until the night of her brother’s wedding, when she throws out all her rules—in spectacular fashion and finds herself in bed with one of her brother’s bandmates. What had she been thinking? She caved to the one thing she can’t control—her longtime crush on a tall, charismatic, ginger of a man . . . who also happens to BE ONE OF HER BROTHER’S BEST FRIENDS.

Blake Kelly knows two things for sure: happily-ever-after is a myth and Bridget Hayes is risk personified. Doesn’t matter that he’s been attracted to her since her brother uttered the words, “Meet my sister.” Getting close to her could blow up the band. And the band is his family. He can’t risk it . . . no matter how much he wants a repeat performance.

Armed with a pact—tell no one—they return to their regularly scheduled lives. Because in a city of nine million people, what are the chances they’ll bump into each other anytime soon?

Nada. Zip. Zilch.

That is, until a rescue pup named Destiny turns out to be less dog and more cupid in a fur coat.

 

OFF THE RECORD is the third book in the award-winning Storyhill Musicians series.

Mix two secret crushes, a splash of sports romance, and the complications of dating your brother’s best friend and you have this witty steamy contemporary romance about two people figuring out if the risk is worth the reward.

Exclusive Excerpt:

“Blake, I need you to pick up Bridget at the airport.”

A shiver ran down Blake’s spine at the mention of Andrew’s sister. And not the cold kind. The so-warm-if-you’re-not-careful-you-might-get-burned kind. “You want me to pick up Bridget?” Andrew had spent years discouraging Blake’s interaction with his sister—loudly.

“Not really.” Andrew grimaced. “But everyone else already has an assigned task, and Grace promised to make our wedding night very boring if I let my little sister take an Uber.”

“Little” was an interesting way to describe Bridget Hayes. At thirty-four years old, six feet tall, and one of the youngest basketball executives in the league, little would be the last word Blake would choose. Stunning or accomplished seemed better places to start.

Andrew scrubbed his fingers through his hair. “Just remember—”

Blake blew out a breath. “Yeah, yeah, she’s off limits. I heard you the first hundred times.”

“I was going to say it takes her some extra time to get from the gate to baggage claim. She’s still, um, fragile.”

Little and now “fragile?” Had Andrew paid any attention to his sister over the past decade? Ten years was a long time to still be treating her like she might break. But maybe he shouldn’t judge, he didn’t have any siblings, didn’t have any first-hand experience with family dynamics.

“But, Blake,” Andrew said, pushing a finger into Blake chest. “What you said, too.”

Nick picked up the tray of favors and chuckled. “Don’t worry Andrew, gingers are very few people’s cup of tea.”

“I think you got some bad data, my friend.” Blake ran a hand down his chest and winked. “Red heads are the world’s unicorns and who couldn’t use a little more magic in their life?”

Two short reviews

Well. It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to review anything. My reader’s block this year has been just awful. I have been mostly doing re-reading which I love, don’t get me wrong, but I definitely want to give new books their due also. For whatever reason, I just haven’t been able to really engage with newer materials.

Except! These two books which I thoroughly enjoyed. First up is Storm Echo by Nalini Singh. This is another book in her long-running Psy-Changeling series. It features changeling Lei and Psy Ivan. Theirs is a beautiful mix of a rather gray world with a colorful, vibrant world. Ivan never expected to meet someone like Lei and then something happens and well, he is shaken to his core. This book helps to propel the larger storyline along too. I was quite impressed with how Ivan’s powers manifested. Reading the description was rather chilling to me honestly! And Lei, I liked her. Her warmth and love of family leaps off the page at every turn. She has some misconceptions about things in her past that will take communication to get past but she puts the work in.

Lei and Ivan’s connection was simply electric and vulnerable to me. Once I started the book, I could not put it down. This remains a huge credit to Nalini Singh and her talent because again, I can barely read any new books in 2022. It’s been an abysmal year for reading for me. I really cannot rave enough about Storm Echo and the powerful love story at its center. It brought to mind some of my favorite Psy romances (Brenna and Judd in particular, though they have a very different story). I’m glad Nalini takes such care with her stories because they remain one a book series I look forward to each year and re-read quite often.

Love on the Brain by Ali Hazelwood

My next book that I have loved this year is Love on the Brain by Ali Hazelwood. So, I am kind of obsessed with all things NASA. I am a very big fan of the Apple tv show, For All Mankind. I LOVE Emma Barry’s historical romance series, Fly Me To the Moon, which focuses on astronauts and other people involved in space. Well, add Love On the Brain to my to re-read list. Ali Hazelwood won me over instantly with The Love Hypothesis so to say I was thrilled and excited to read this book would be a massive understatement. I was EXCITED. Like Taylor Swift putting out a new album level of excited. Fortunately for me, my excitement turned out to be good.

Levi and Bee are two big science people looking to make a difference in the world. Unfortunately, they butt heads big time at NASA. Bee and Levi are in a love-hate style relationship and sometimes this trope works for me big time. This case? Definitely worked. I enjoyed their chemistry and even their miscommunications that made me want to bang my head sometimes. There is something very sexy to me about this style of relationship but it definitely won’t be everyone’s cup of tea. I also love all the pink on the cover.

I want to thank the publisher for giving me access to early galleys of these books and for not yelling at me every day via email when I didn’t have a review ready. I am very, very rusty at writing at this time.

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!
