Pushing You Away by Kennedy Fox

4 STARS!

Release Date: February 16, 2021

SYNOPSIS: I’ve been in love with my best friend Katie Walker for as long as I can remember. We may have shared our deepest, darkest secrets but that one I’ve kept to myself. Before I got the courage to confess my true feelings, my cousin Gabe moved to town and swept Katie off her feet. I should’ve admitted how I felt but I couldn’t—especially once they got married.
When I caught Gabe cheating on his pregnant wife, I snapped. A deadly fight erupted and before I could comprehend what happened, I was charged with his murder and sent to prison. The day I’m released, I go straight to Katie’s house. But after pushing her away for a decade while I was behind bars—she slams the door in my face—wanting nothing to do with me. While she’s determined to pretend I don’t exist, this time I’m not going anywhere. 


PUSHING YOU AWAY is a slow burn, angsty friends to lovers romance with lots of small-town, Southern drama.
This is book 1 in the Noah & Katie duet and must be read in order.


IF YOU LOVE:
✔️Childhood friends… to enemies…to more?
✔️Single parent
✔️Small-town drama
✔️Suspense
✔️Hero redemption


REVIEW: As per usual, I NEED book 2 right this minute. Luckily, Kennedy Fox never makes us wait long. Book 2: Holding You Close comes out on March 16th. Okay, back to this book. I love Noah. I have been so curious about both Katie and Noah since we get hints about their situation during Tyler and Gemma’s Duet. They sure do have a lot of cards stacked against them with what has happened in the past! And then there’s the current drama bringing that romantic suspense aspect into the picture. In true Kennedy Fox fashion, they gave us a ton of little details within that damn cliffhanger they leave us with. I am picking up what is going on with this one and I am looking forward to seeing how it unfolds and all the details come together. I’m definitely rooting for these two!

Straight Up by Charity Ferrell

4.5 STARS

Release Date: Febuary 2, 2020

SYNOPSIS: Lincoln: I went from a penthouse to sleeping in a prison cell. From the VP of a million-dollar empire to a felon. All for a crime I didn’t commit. Now that I’m free, I vow to stay out of trouble. The only problem? She’s trouble wrapped in a bow.
Cassidy: My type? Bad boys. Until my bad boy boyfriend got me arrested. I’ve moved to a new town and sworn off relationships. Until I meet him … my Prince Charming … fresh out of prison.
Trouble and bad boys never felt so good … until it all falls apart.


This is Book 3 in the Twisted Fox Series!


REVIEW: I am just loving this series of interconnected standalones! And it’s so much fun to see the characters from the Blue Beech series popping up in this world as well. When I got see Cassidy meet Lincoln in the previous book I loved her attitude towards him. I could not wait to see how she pursued him and how they would feel about each other. They both have messy pasts, but I think it was perfect, like they were meant to be together. Cassidy is a force not to be reckoned with, which kind of reminds me of her sister Sierra from Just Roommates in the Blue Beech series. And Lincoln is totally swoon worthy! The way he is with Cassidy throughout the whole book makes him a total book boyfriend. I also like that he was the voice of reason for his brother, Archer, in the previous book. He’s got a great perspective and it really showed up a lot in his actions throughout his own story. Really, I just loved both of these two and I am glad we got their story. I think that book one, Stirred, will always be my favorite, BUT I am sincerely looking forward to book four, Chaser, with the teaser Charity Ferrell gave us at the end of this book.

Flirting with Forever by Cara Bastone

5 STARS

Release Date: January 26, 2021

SYNOPSIS: Sometimes you get a second chance at a first impression.
Mary Trace is bright, bubbly and back in the dating pool in her midthirties. All of her closest friends are in love, and she refuses to miss out on romance. So when a regular customer at her trendy Brooklyn boutique wants to set Mary up on a blind date with her son, she gives a hesitant yes. John Modesto-Whitford is gorgeous and well-groomed, so maybe dinner won’t be a total bust—until he drops a less-than-flattering comment about Mary’s age. Desperate to be nothing like his snake of a politician father, public defender John Modesto-Whitford prides himself on his honesty and candor. But his social awkwardness and lack of filter just blew it with the most beautiful woman he’s ever dated. Luckily, Mom’s machinations keep Mary and John running into each other all summer long, and soon they resort to fake dating to get her to back off. When their pretense turns to real friendship—and some surprisingly hot chemistry—can these two stubborn individuals see past their rocky start to a rock-solid future together? 


Book 3 in the Forever Yours Series!


REVIEW

Did I binge this whole series? Yes, yes I did!
Did I enjoy them all? You bet!
Was this by far my most favorite one? DEFINITELY!

Okay, but seriously, this book was so wonderful and frustrating at the same time. Sometimes as a reader getting the perspective of both characters makes me want to dive into the pages and tell the characters to talk to each other already. Sometimes this ruins a book, but Cara Bastone did not have that problem. Both characters were endearing in very different ways, and I loved getting to know them and seeing them struggle with their feelings and insecurities. I mean the first impression –> HILARIOUSLY AWFUL. Poor, poor, clueless and socially awkward John. Luckily, there’s a depth there we get to see over the course of this book. Mary is the complete opposite, because she is a damn delight! If I can’t be her, I want her as a best friend. All of this and the characters from previous books made this one so much fun. It wasn’t like anything I’ve read in a long time. I’d definitely recommend it!

Wrecked Palace by Catherine Cowles

5 Stars!

Release Date: January 19, 2021

Synopsis: My past taught me to play it safe. To stay far away from handsome men who promised it all. My life was good without them. Stable, secure, predictable. But one kiss showed me that I’d been playing it safe for far too long. One night, and all I wanted was more of his wildfire. One challenge and my carefully constructed walls tumbled down. Amidst the rubble, I realized there was more to this man than I ever dreamed. When everything fell apart, he showed me what it meant to stay. How to truly live. But some demons don’t stay buried. The past can come knocking when you least expect. And the life he’s showing me might be shorter than either of us expected…


Review:

✓ Romantic Suspense
✓ Damaged and Brooding Hero with a Heart of Gold
✓ Sweet, Caring, and Strong heroine
✓ Inherited Children
✓ A Kitten with the Perfect Name

I found my first favorite book of the year! The way Caelyn and Griffin’s story was set up in the previous books made me really excited. It is always great finally finding out why the broody/grumpy/quiet man is the way he is. I’m also a total sucker for inherited kids! We get to see a little bit of Caelyn taking care of her siblings in the previous books. She’s always come across as such a good person. Learning her full story–what happened to her to bring her home from college and find herself the guardian of her siblings–had me falling head over heels in love with her as a character. I think Catherine Cowles is doing such a wonderful job with this romantic suspense series. It’s beyond emotional and I love all of the characters. It’s always a treat to see the characters from previous books, while also getting the story of the two new characters. Every time we’re introduced to someone in this series, I’m just so curious about them. In this one we meet Shay. The way she interacts with Caelyn and the mystery surrounding her, always has me dying to read her book –> Reckless Refuge!

Honestly, if you want emotion, suspense, and that happily ever after that the characters definitely deserve, I think this whole series is worth reading. I seriously loved every moment of it. And plus, the covers are absolutely beautiful!

Let it be Me By Kait Nolan


Book One in the Men of the Misfit Inn series!  


4 STARS

Release Date: January 8, 2021

SYNOPSIS: Four years ago, firefighter Caleb Romero saved a child and met the woman of his dreams. But trauma killed the timing, so he’s contented himself with being the friend she needed as she navigated sudden parenthood. Four years ago, Emerson Aldridge became a mom in the worst possible way. Without qualm, she abandoned her own dreams to shepherd her teenage daughter through their shared grief. Her number one priority has been to raise Fiona the way her best friend would have wanted. Now Fi’s headed off to college and Emerson has no idea how to feel about her suddenly empty nest. She barely even remembers life before motherhood, but Caleb’s right next door to give her a reminder—along with a toe-curling kiss that catapults them past friends and into something more. The life she wanted before the accident is still within reach. He just has to convince her that their age difference means nothing.
Piece of cake. Right?


Review: Well this was adorable! I picked this up, because I love seeing how authors do the older woman in an age gap romance. Emerson and Caleb meet the night her best friend dies in a fire. Caleb ends up being the firefighter that saves her goddaughter. The actual romance doesn’t start until four years later when Fiona leaves to college. Caleb has been harboring a crush, but Emerson wasn’t aware because with him being younger, she didn’t think of him like that. She definitely has a bit of a hangup when it comes to him being 8 years younger. When she first find out about said crush it’s a little awkward, but super cute. Caleb is a great male lead! Even his relationship with Fiona is cute. If you want a fluffy read that’ll make you swoon, this one is for you.

The Best of Us by Kennedy Fox

4.5 STARS!

Release Date: December 1, 2020

SYNOPSIS: What happens when the biggest blizzard of the year hits and you’re trapped in a cabin with your best friend’s brother? You take every opportunity to spend time together and make him fall in love with you.

The Best of Us is a best friend’s brother, opposites attract, and snowed-in together standalone romance. The second book of the Love in Isolation Series.

REVIEW: I’ve been looking forward to this one since reading The Two of Us, which I absolutely adored! While that one took place during the pandemic, this one takes place afterward when a vaccine is available. I think what I like about these books is the impact of a pandemic is very realistically portrayed–which I think we can all connect to right now. Ryan was such an interesting character and not what I was expecting after meeting his sister Cami in book 1. Ryan is a doctor and worked during the pandemic. That and his wealthy family impact who he is and how he’s coping during this book. Kendall handles what Ryan throws at her pretty well, even though she’s obviously had a thing for him for a long time. This was such a journey for these two, with lots and lots of steamy moments. They are definitely NOT lacking chemistry! It was fun to see little bits of Cami and Eli as well. I’m excited to see what comes next in this series.

Hard Love by Sara Ney

5 STARS!!!

Release Date: November 19, 2020

SYNOPSIS: “HARD TO LOVE.” Hard head. Bad attitude. Terrible boyfriend. That’s what my exes have said about me—but I wasn’t serious about any of them, so what do I care what rumors they spread? What I need is to be left alone; by the press, by the paparazzi, and by women. Too bad I’m about to be surrounded by them for the weekend. My obnoxious, matchmaking brother is getting married, and he’s doing his damndest to find me a wedding date…
“HARD TO FIND.” That’s what they say about good men—they’re hard to find. Not that when I find one, I’ll be the type he’s looking for; too nice, too ordinary, too boring. My cousin is getting married, and her fiancé insists on throwing me at his brother. Cold, uncaring professional football player Tripp Wallace would never look twice at a woman like me. Too bad for both of us, I was wrong…

REVIEW: This was so different, but in a really good way! I had no idea what the characters were going to say, what they were going to do, how they were going to come together, how feelings were going to develop between them. Tripp was a fascinating male lead. I mean I love the Wallace family in general, they’re so inviting yes, theres always a ton of bickering between then all–it comes from a place of love. They definitely all have different personalities and Tripp and Trace are so very different. Tripp was very reminiscent of someone on the spectrum. He kind of says whatever he’s thinking without the realization that there are social niceties that we adhere to in order to not hurt other peoples feelings. This is honestly my favorite type person, as long as I have some heads up. Haha.

Chandler is also interesting because she’s in a similar position to Hollis when it comes to the family obligations. Although it was a little less delved into, other than knowing that she’s having difficulty finding her dream job, because the relationship between these characters ruled the story in the best way. I do like how both characters seem to kind of find themselves by interacting with each other. We get to witness better sides of both of them as they continue to get to know each other and develop a relationship. I just really enjoyed this one! Also, the little preview of True Wallace at the end was my cat nip, and I am so freaking excited for the next book, Hard Luck!!

Blacklisted by Jay Crownover

4 STARS

Release Date: October 27, 2020

SYNOPSIS: Dr. Presley Baskin has always lived a quiet, calm life. Unfortunately, nothing about her life in Loveless, Texas — especially not the wild, rowdy, and impossibly close-knit Lawton family who’ve claimed her — is quiet or calm. Which is how loner Presley finds herself roped into patching up local bad boy Shot Caldwell against her better judgment. Presley wants nothing to do with the dangerous, brooding leader of the local outlaw motorcycle club. But when someone starts stalking her, Shot is the only person she trusts to help. Plus he owes her one . . .
Palmer ‘Shot’ Caldwell has always known his life isn’t made for relationships. At least until shy, secretive, Presley reluctantly pulled a bullet out of him. He’s oddly protective of the pretty doctor, so when she comes to him for help, hard-hearted Shot suddenly realizes there’s nothing he wouldn’t do to keep her safe.


Review: I cannot believe Jay Crownover’s Loveless, Texas series has come to an end! I have to say Justified (book 1) was so damn good and got me completely invested in this world. It has been an awesome journey seeing what happens to the Lawton family. When I met Shot and Presley in Unforgiven, I was pretty intrigued by them and was extremely excited for their story! Shot’s attraction to Presely was also fun to experience. I think their story was a little different than I was expecting. And I’m usually okay with the whole sibling’s ex thing, but the way a couple of things happened in this story just didn’t work for me. Obviously, these are very personal preferences and might not be an issue for you at all. It was still great to see more of the overarching story and figure out what happened. I enjoyed the series as a whole and I’m so glad I found it. Do yourself a favor and dive into Loveless, Texas for some romantic suspense with sexy cowboys and sassy heroines!

Secret Puck by Rebecca Jenshak

5 STARS!

Release Date: October 19, 2020

SYNOPSIS: Secretly hooking up with the team captain’s sister was a bad idea.
In my defense, the first time I saw her I didn’t know who she was.
Kind, gorgeous, a little naïve. Ginny brightened my world from day one.
I knew I was no good for her. She was just out of a relationship and I had a reputation for having a new girl in my bed every weekend.
I tried to do the right thing. Honest.
I’m the one who insisted we should be just friends.
That lasted about as long as you’d expect.
But Ginny? She’s the best – best friend, best everything.
So yeah, hooking up with the team captain’s sister wasn’t a great idea.
Would I do it again?
In a heartbeat.

REVIEW: I loved the characters. I loved the relationship. I loved all the friendships–the friend group was just super fun! Jenny is the actual sweetest, and just so freaking adorable. In the beginning the book, we read about the break up with her ex. You learn more about the whole situation later in the book, and it’s really bad. Yet she doesn’t even seem to really hold it against him, because she kind of just sees the good in everybody. Something I like about taming-the-bad-boy stories is that you always find out why they are the way they are. I sincerely enjoyed hearing Heath’s backstory and seeing the impact his childhood had on him. It made him such a realistic character. What really made me fall for him was that even though he had a crazy past he was really good to Jenny throughout the whole story. He’s definitely being added to the book boyfriend list. It’s also neat to see little glimpses of Nate and Chloe from The Fake, I didn’t even realize that Nate and Heath are brothers. The book gave me all the warm and fuzzy feelings, and by the end I was just so smitten with the whole damn story. I’m really excited for Jenny’s brother Adam to get his HEA in the next book!

Our Star-Crossed Kiss by Piper Rayne

5 STARS!

Release Date: October 13, 2020

SYNOPSIS: She’s got two strikes against her. Her name is Erickson and her parents own The Bagel Place. It wasn’t always that way. When we were nine, we were best friends. But then a feud between our dads ripped their successful business apart—and my best friend was ripped away too. Our paths were bound to cross again. When both our families vie for the same spot on a Food Channel’s reality show, the producers decide to change the format, aligning us as allies. In order to get our parents to agree to work together, Evan asks me to pretend to be her boyfriend, but I dare her to up the ante—be my fiancée. Fake fiancée… obviously. As usual, I didn’t think things through. Turns out our parents have a lot of demands neither one of us expected. And all those demands lead to things feeling more real than fake.


REVIEW: This relationship was just so sweet and cute and wonderful! Yes, I needed all of those words to describe how I’m feeling as I finish this adorable book. Even though I knew drama was coming, I think the way it happened was so perfect for the story and not over the top. Piper Rayne wrote this journey in the perfect way. Seth was always the funny character in the first few books, and getting his backstory of why he’s always the comedic relief really adds to him as a male lead. I did kind of want to smack some sense into him, because it took him so damn long to figure out his feelings. BUT once he knew, he knew. And I love nothing better than a man determined to get his lady! Plus, the little flashbacks to when they were younger were so perfect. I fell in love with them even more as I learned about their friendship as children.

Evan is such a wonderful character. She’s so very strong and caring. The way she puts everyone in her family first just shows what a considerate person she is. I did kind of wonder how she even ended up with Brock in the first place, because they don’t match up at all in my mind. Luckily it does get explained, and it made me that much more happy that she ended up with Seth. Her and Seth are just so perfect for each other! Something I really do love about the series in general is the Rooftop crew itself. This group of friends is just so awesome. Each character brings so much to the group and each story. I love seeing the couples we already know about and the couples that are coming in the rest of the series, because they’re just so fun. The Newlywed Game scene is HILARIOUS. It’s something I do love about Piper Rayne’s books, you’re laughing, but you’re also clutching as your heart. And the deep roots of the two leads in this one made me feel all the feels! I can’t wait to see how the rest of this series unfolds!

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.
