REVIEW: This one was really sweet! Fin and Grace have the kind of pull that cannot be ignored, even though they’re trying. Seeing them as side characters in the previous books made me very interested to see their relationship on a deeper level. I was completely invested in them before I even opened the book. This is one thing I am loving about this series of interconnected standalones–I am invested in all of the characters finding their HEA! This book also features a trope that I really love in romance books, and that is a man’s dedication to the woman he loves, even if they’re not together! Finn is just such a caring male lead. I really appreciated everything he did in this book for Grace. Of course it can’t be that easy between these two best friends though. Grace ‘s overthinking was justifiable, but definitely made me want to talk some sense into her. The journey for these two is a little messy, but I’m so glad I got to read it. This friend group is just so great and I love seeing them all come together. I’m pretty excited to see what happens to Silas and Lola in Last Round after what occurs during this book between them! Book one, Stirred, is still my favorite, but this one was definitely a good one.
Thank you to Charity Ferrell and Wildfire Marketing Solutions for the eARC in exchange for an honest review!
Charity resides in Indianapolis, Indiana. She grew up riding her bicycle to the town’s public library, and reading anything she could get her hands on. When she’s not writing, you can find her reading, spending time with her family, or caving into her online shopping addiction.
SYNOPSIS: Waking up next to a stranger wearing a wedding ring was not on the itinerary.
I came to Las Vegas for a quick girl’s trip, but somehow ended up a married woman. What I thought would stay in Vegas followed me back to my small town of Sunrise Bay, Alaska. Of course, my new husband—MMA champion fighter, Logan Stone—couldn’t find me alone at my house to tell me he wants to give our impromptu nuptials a shot. He has to tell me in front of my entire family and half the town. The two of us couldn’t be more opposite, but he offers me a deal I can’t refuse which involves me pretending we’re happily married for three months. Yeah, a lot of things can change in that short amount of time, most importantly catching feelings for a man whose lifestyle I despise.
This is Book 3 in The Greene Family Series!
REVIEW: The Greene Family is making me so happy! When Nikki causes trouble for her brother Cade in My Beautiful Neighbor, I knew she was going to feel the karma when it came time for her book. It’s really interesting to have her mom and step-dad’s story (Hank and Marla) in My Twist of Fortune, then find out more about how what happened with her parents impacts her as an adult. She has some justifiable issues that play a part in her relationships. Luckily, Logan is perfect for Nikki, even if she can’t see it! He is definitely a new book boyfriend! I just loved how he handled everything throughout the whole story. His relationship with his mom was so endearing too! I also liked the trust and devotion that developed between these two. I feel like they find themselves in a really healthy relationship despite the start and issues that came their way. I’m really looking forward to the next book with the little surprise that Piper Rayne dropped at the end of this one. It’s right up my alley and one of my favorite tropes, so you can probably guess what that means!
Thank you so much to Piper Rayne and Wildfire Marketing Solutions for the eARC in exchange for an honest review!
Piper Rayne, or Piper and Rayne, whichever you prefer because we’re not one author, we’re two. Yep, you get two USA Today Bestselling authors for the price of one. Our goal is to bring you romance stories that have “Heartwarming Humor With a Side of Sizzle” (okay…you caught us, that’s our tagline). A little about us… We both have kindle’s full of one-clickable books. We’re both married to husbands who drive us to drink. We’re both chauffeurs to our kids. Most of all, we love hot heroes and quirky heroines that make us laugh, and we hope you do, too.
SYNOPSIS: With summer just around the corner, Emma St. James is eagerly planning a 5K run at Sweetwater Springs National Park. But first she needs the help of one charming, rugged, and handsome park ranger. Her brief high school romance with Jack Hershey may have ended in heartbreak, but Emma can’t deny that he still gives her butterflies. So when Jack responds to her request with an all-too-tempting plea to pretend to be his girlfriend for the summer, how can she say no? Jack would do anything for his sister — even pretend to give up his bachelor life to care for his nephew. Passing his days with his high school sweetheart guarantees one long, hot summer — but only because every moment together leaves him wanting a real relationship. He can’t imagine spending another season without Emma by his side. Can he convince her to give their love a second chance before the summer draws to a close?
REVIEW: Well this was absolutely adorable second chance romance. I love a good fake relationship, expecially when caring for kids are involved, and this one did not disappoint. It gave me al the warm and fuzzies. There is just something about seeing a man learn from his mistakes and put his all into turning something fake into something real. I am so happy I picked this one up and I would definitely recommend it!
Thank you to Forever Pub for an early copy, I’m very lucky to be able to partner with them to share wonderful romances books like these!
