Blog Tour/ Review- The Rules of Dating by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland

 

Title: The Rules of Dating
Authors: Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 19, 2022
BLURB

 

It all started when I hosted a little party for a bunch of new friends.

 

Though “friends” might not be the right word since the invitees were all the women I’d found out my boyfriend was talking to behind my back. When the guest of honor walked in—aka my now ex—things took a turn…
Unfortunately, a stranger witnessed the whole blowout. I was in a mood that night and ended up giving this gorgeous guy an attitude, too. As if my night could get any worse, before he stormed off, he informed me he was actually my landlord.
Colby Lennon, along with three of his friends, owned the building where my tattoo shop was located. He and I were total opposites. He wore a tie, oozed confidence that came with years of women falling at his feet, and wasn’t afraid to say what he wanted, which lately—was me.
I hated that I found myself attracted to him. Especially since I was supposed to be on a self-imposed dating hiatus. Yet the two of us couldn’t seem to stay away from each other. We started hanging out, as friends. I even went as far as making rules for what he’d dubbed our “undates.”
But eventually, our explosive attraction became too much to bear, and we broke our resolve. I let my guard down and started to really fall for Colby.
Nothing could have prepared me for the ride he took me on. And I certainly wasn’t prepared for where I’d wind up when the ride was over.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

I just love it when Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland come together and create book magic.  It’s like the hocus pocus of bookcraftery and it’s not even October yet!
The Rules of Dating is just another one to add to the pile of books I love by this dynamic Duo.   You’ve got Billie a crazy talented tattoo artist that has been burned in a past relationship and doesn’t want hurt again.  If any man dare to double cross her again they may end up with far worse then a  “design”.   Our leading male ( I say leading because there are a few in this book)  is Colby who is an ultra hot, successful, single dad who loves the women in his life fiercely.   These two certainly don’t seem like two that would mix,  but they do and boy do sparks fly…With a crazy few sputters in between.
I loved this book and every little thing about it.  I can’t wait to see what they bring us next however I do know is whatever it is, I am sure to love it.

*Blog Tour/Review – Moody by Penelope Ward*

 

Title: Moody
Author: Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 22, 2022

 

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

 

The day I showed up to Dax Moody’s sprawling home, I had no idea what was coming.
As a traveling massage therapist, I was used to entering the houses of strangers.
But this assignment was different from any before it.
From the outside, I’d correctly assumed the owner was rich. What I didn’t realize was that he would be younger than I’d imagined, single, stunningly gorgeous, and mysterious.
Despite the fact that Dax had booked a massage, it never actually happened, since our first appointment was unexpectedly cut short by a comedy of errors.
Certain I’d never see him again after that day, I’d done nothing but think about the captivating man.
To my surprise, he called a second time. That appointment, we talked a lot, developing a stronger connection. But once again, there was no actual massage.
The man I now affectionately called “Moody” kept calling me to come back.
It took three times before I finally gave him the massage he’d ordered. Let’s just say it was challenging to keep things professional. I was extremely attracted to Dax, and by that time, I was falling hard.
Eventually, I’d find out why he’d been so aloof, the reason why he and I could never be together.
Our story was supposed to end there, but it didn’t.
Instead, I was left perpetually longing for a forbidden man.

*Blog Tour/Review* The Boss Project by Vi Keeland

 

Title: The Boss Project

Author: Vi Keeland

Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance

Release Date: July 11, 2022

 

BLURB

The first time I met Merrick Crawford was during my job interview.
Well, technically, I’d met him twenty minutes earlier when he’d barged into a fitting room a few doors down from my appointment.
I yelled. He yelled. After an argument while standing in my bra, I proceeded to smash the door into the gorgeous jerk, trying to yank it shut.
As you might imagine, I was freaked out when I discovered that the rude guy was my potential new boss.
Yet he didn’t seem to recognize me. Or so I thought… Until we wound up bickering again during my interview and he told me to go sniff my armpit.
Okay, so maybe I hadn’t exactly been changing when he walked in on me. In my defense, I’d been stuck on a hot train for two hours and wanted to make sure I didn’t smell.
I obviously didn’t expect to get the job. But somehow an invitation to a second interview arrived in my inbox.
Before I left, I asked to see Merrick. I needed to know why I was even in consideration after our disastrous start.
Turned out, Merrick only wanted to hire me because I was the least competent candidate. It seemed his board was making him fill the position, against his wishes.
I didn’t really want to work in a place where my boss expected me to fail. But I figured maybe I’d enjoy proving him wrong. It was a little thing I dubbed the boss project.
What I wasn’t prepared for was that there would be other things I’d enjoy doing to Merrick Crawford.
Getting involved with the boss wasn’t the smartest choice.
But you know what they say about choices: Some we regret, some we are proud of. I just had no idea where this one was going to land.

 

I really feel like a broken but in the BEST way record when I write reviews by this author.    I honestly love every single book she’s put out in this bookish loving world for us readers!    I adored both Evie and Merrick so,so much!  And Kitty, Kitty is a woman that I could only wish was my grandma, oh the fun we would have getting into to trouble.  She was a fiesty, fiery lady that loved with her whole being and really brought this book full circle.

The Boss Project was certainly a slower burner but not a slow feel while reading.  It had everything you want and expect when picking up one of Keeland’s books.   Evie and Merrick both struggled letting go and letting themselves fall into one another because of their pasts.  Their chemistry was undeniable from the get go and watching them both open up through the book just warmed my heart.  They may have been nudged along the way a bit by a certain fun lovin lady.  As always it wasn’t an easy, smooth paved road for either them with lots of bumps along their ride but oh what a sweet ride it was.   Their initial meeting may have gone completely “Cherry Pittin” wrong, but the ending was Oh So Right!  Another Vi Keeland favorite for me and one of my top sizzlin’ summer reads!

*Blog Tour/Review* The Assignment by Penelope Ward

 

Title: The Assignment
Author: Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 28, 2022
BLURB

 

 

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

 

Reasons why I should not be drawn to Troy Serrano.
Number one: He’s obnoxious.
Number two: He and I were enemies over a decade ago in high school.
Number three: He’s my friend’s ex-boyfriend.
I could go on and on, really.
When my boss gives me an unwanted assignment and tells me it involves spending time with the grandson of one of our residents—the grandson turns out to be Troy. He’s now as successful as he is undeniably handsome.
Lucky me. Four hours a week of having to deal with his insufferable personality and unsolicited advice.
The only consolation is getting to stare at his annoyingly gorgeous face in between our many arguments.
Eventually, though, we slowly warm to each other and our outings become something I actually look forward to.

 

What’s happening to me?

 

Apparently, I misunderstood the assignment, because it certainly didn’t include thinking about Troy when I close my eyes at night, imagining what it would be like with him—just once. All the while hating myself for fantasizing about a guy who’s all wrong for me. A guy whose car I keyed back in the day. (Long story, but he deserved it.)
That’s all this is—a fantasy.
Well, until that one night at the bar.
The night Troy and I run into each other, and all of our pent-up frustration comes barreling out.
Still, I refuse to accept that it means anything.
There’s no way the guy I’m supposed to hate is also the one I can’t live without.

This book was a cute and fun read.  It was light and easy to get through.     I did enjoy this enemies to lovers romance and the way it all came together in the end with Aspen and Troy.   I loved all the little “sprinkles” along the way reading as well.   I found myself giggling especially with Nonno and really loved Troy’s character but found myself having a hard time really connecting with Aspyn for some odd reason.    I keep trying to put my finger on it but I think it was because of her simply just taking forever to realize things you do as a teen, MOST don’t do as an adult.   Once she finally came to this realization and let go a bit, I found myself liking her more as the book went on.   Oh and let’s not forget about Kiki an Menses the Unicorn, I damn near spit out my drink at that one!   Such an adorable little girl, clever and so oh witty!   I love how Troy connected with her, it really melted my ice cold heart!

Nonno 1000% stole the show in this book for me!  While this one wasn’t one of my favorites from one of my go to authors, I still enjoyed it none the less.  It was well written, with a good story line.  It had all the feels and certainly packed full of cute moments and laughter.   As always I can’t wait to see what Ms. Ward brings us next!

Blog Tour/Review – The Summer Proposal by Vi Keeland

 

Title: The Summer Proposal

Author: Vi Keeland

Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance

Release Date: January 10, 2022

 

The first time I met Max Yearwood was on a blind date.

 

Max was insanely gorgeous, funny, and our chemistry was off the charts. He also had the biggest dimples I’d ever laid eyes on.
Exactly what I needed after my breakup.

 

Or so I thought…

 

Until my real date arrived.
Turned out, Max wasn’t who I was there to meet. He only pretended to be until my real date showed up.
To say I was disappointed would be an understatement.
Before he left, he slipped me a ticket to a hockey game a few blocks away, in case things didn’t work out on my actual date.
I tossed the ticket into my purse and went about trying to enjoy the man I was supposed to meet.
But my real blind date and I had no connection.
So on my way home, I decided to take a chance and stop by the game.
When I arrived, the seat next to me was empty.
Disappointed again, I decided to leave at the end of the period.
Just before the buzzer, one of the teams scored, and the entire arena went crazy.
A player’s face flashed up on the Jumbotron. He was wearing a helmet, but I froze when he smiled.
You guessed it: Dimples.
Apparently, my fake blind date hadn’t invited me to watch hockey with him, he’d invited me to watch him play.
And so began my adventure with Max Yearwood.
He was everything I needed at the time—fun, sexy, up for anything, and only around for a few months since he’d signed with a new team three-thousand miles away.
Max proposed we spend the summer helping me forget my ex. It sounded like a good plan. Things couldn’t get too serious when we had an expiration date. Right?
Though, you know what they say about the best-laid plans.

 

Who knew a Blind Date would turn into one hell of a whirlwind gorgeous romance!  Well, a blind date that really wasn’t your blind date.  Max can’t resist when he sees a gorgeous woman sitting alone at the restaurant and went walking her way, but when Georgia asked if he was Adam, Max being Max said “sure”.   All was well till Adam walked up.  I knew from that point that I was going to love his character.   Needless to say Georgia wasn’t too happy because this gorgeous killer smile stranger just lied to her face.  But Max wasn’t giving up, he leaves her to her real date but not without leaving an invitation to meet him at a Hockey Game, and it wasn’t just any Hockey Game.  It was HIS game!

This book was full of a sprinkle of everything.   It was funny, emotional, angsty, sweet and sexy.   I really enjoyed every single moment of this story.  Max is a swoon-worthy Hockey player and has mad skills on and off the ice, that is for sure.   Georgia is sweet, smart, successful and strong.   I really enjoyed all the characters and the direction of the story.   In true Vi fashion she wrapped it up and finished it off with a nice pretty book bow!

*Blog Tour / Review* Well Played by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

Title: Well Played
Authors: Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 25, 2021

 

It all started with a bet.

 

When my young son inherited half of his great grandfather’s historic inn, I decided to move us both to the place where I grew up.
Notice I said half of the Inn. The other half now belonged to Levi Miller, the famous quarterback who had other ideas about what we should do with the property.
We won’t mention that I accidentally injured him during our first meeting, causing him to get eight stitches.
You could say we got off on the wrong foot.
We bickered a lot as we both moved into the property while we figured things out.
He wanted to unload the rundown place which, admittedly, needed a lot of work.
I wanted to restore The Palm Inn to its original beauty and re-open it as a bed and breakfast.
We couldn’t agree on anything. So Levi made me a proposal. One he thought I would surely lose. If I could sell out the place by the time he had to leave for training at the end of summer, he would back off and let me run it.
But in the weeks that followed, we got more than we bargained for while we were living under the same roof.
Levi and I got closer, and before I knew it, my nightly fantasies about the brawny Adonis became a reality. Not to mention, he was so great with my son.
We were in over our heads in more ways than one.
Because not only was he the last man on Earth I should be falling for because of our deal, but Levi was also my ex’s older brother.
And now the inn was the least of my problems.

I really enjoyed Well Played.  I say this every review with anything written by these two authors, but I really do think they are a dynamic duo that can write incredibly well and compliment each other in anything they publish.

Well Played all starts with Presley’s young son Alex inheriting her Ex’s grandfathers Inn, well a portion of it that is.  The other portion was inherited by Levi, who happens to be the Ex’s brother.  She moved Alex away from the NY into a small town in hopes for a better life.  The only problem is she wants to fix up in the Inn and plant roots in the small town, but Levi has other plans to sell and wants no parts of it and go back to his life as a star QB.

Can Presley change Levi’s mind into not selling?  And, what happens along the way between these two especially considering the Ex is Levi’s brother Tanner?  Things could go down as the worst play in playbook history or it can turn out to be the best Well Played game of all time!  Gotta read to find out, trust me you won’t be disappointed!

*Blog Tour / Review* The Aristocrat by Penelope Ward

Title: The Aristocrat

Author: Penelope Ward

Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance

Release Date: August 30, 2021

BLURB

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.
The one that got away. Every girl has one, right?
Mine was a charming, British aristocrat who turned my world upside down one summer.
From the moment I first spotted Leo in the distance through my binoculars, I’d been captivated. I certainly never expected to find a man showering outside of the property across the bay in his birthday suit.
Then I noticed his housemate staring back at me with binoculars of his own—watching me watching Leo.
That made for an interesting conversation starter when I inevitably ran into them.
Turned out, the handsome Brits were only renting that house for the summer in my seaside town.
Leo and I formed an instant connection, even though we were technically opposites by all appearances. I taught him how to dig for clams, and he taught me that not all wealthy and powerful guys are pretentious.
Despite knowing he was totally wrong for me, I couldn’t seem to stay away.
It was a wild and crazy few months. And before I knew it, we’d fallen in love.
We both had one wish: more time together.
But Leo had obligations back home. He lived a life I’d never fit into. And I was going to law school. So, we decided to end it and never look back.
A part of me always felt like I’d let my soulmate walk away.
I believed our story was over.
Until five years later when he sent me a letter that shook me to my core.
I’d thought my world was turned upside down that first summer?
Well, I knew nothing yet.

*Blog Tour/Review* The Spark by Vi Keeland

Title: The Spark

Author: Vi Keeland

Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance

Release Date: July 12, 2021

 

Before I even met Donovan Decker, I knew his shoe size.
You see, I’d gone away for a few days, and in my haste to get out of the airport, I’d grabbed the wrong suitcase.
After checking out the expensive footwear and tailored clothes, I dialed the number on the luggage tag hoping maybe Mister Big Spender might have my bag.
A deep, velvety voice answered, and as luck would have it, he had my suitcase, too.
Donovan and I met at a coffee shop to do the exchange.
Turned out, it wasn’t just his voice that was sexy. The man holding my luggage was absolutely gorgeous, and we had an immediate spark.
He got me to admit that I’d snooped in his bag and then convinced me to make it up to him by letting him buy me coffee.
Coffee led to dinner, dinner led to dessert, and dessert led to spending an entire weekend together. Donovan wasn’t just handsome with a panty-dropping voice. He was also funny, smart, and surprisingly down to earth for a man who wore seven-hundred-dollar shoes.
Did I mention he also did my laundry while I slept?
Definitely too good to be true.
So what did I do to repay him for his kindness?
I waited until he was in the shower, then ghosted him.
My life was too complicated for such a great guy.
In the months that passed, I thought about Donovan often. But New York City had eight-million people, so what were the chances I’d run into him?
Then again, what were the chances I’d run into him a year later…when I’d just started dating his boss?

 

Who would’ve known a little luggage mix up could lead to this kind of SPARK! A little meet up to exchange the mistaken luggage which leads to some coffee and fabulous weekend together, had the making of a great relationship right? Except when Donovan woke up, Autumn was gone like the wind.

Fast forward to almost a year later and once again they find themselves face to face. Autumn doesn’t want any kind of commitment but she’s now got a boyfriend. That boyfriend happens to be Donovan’s boss which poses a bit of a problem since he hasn’t forgotten about Autumn and it seems she hasn’t forgotten about him either. When these two have to spend more time together are sparks going to fly or is a blow up of epic proportions going to happen?

This book was cute, funny, sexy and kept me intrigued the entire time. I absolutely adored and loved these characters and the storyline!

Title: Not Pretending Anymore
Authors: Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 12, 2021

 

Finding a good roommate through a classified ad isn’t as easy as it sounds.
I was starting to lose hope.
Until a knock at my door came and God answered my prayers.
Except…uh…wrong prayer, God.
I’d definitely requested the big guy find me a drop-dead gorgeous man on more than one occasion…just not as my roommate.
Declan Tate talked me into interviewing him anyway.
While he was amusing and charismatic, I wouldn’t have been comfortable living with a man, so I regretfully declined.
Then cupcakes showed up at my door—freshly baked by Declan and just as sinfully delicious as he was.
You could say he was persistent.
I eventually folded. It wasn’t like I had another viable candidate anyway.
Plus, I was interested in someone else. And Declan was into another woman. So it wasn’t like anything would happen romantically.
After he moved in, the two of us became the best of friends. We even started to give each other advice on getting our crushes to notice us.
Eventually, Declan concocted an idea: we should pretend to be a couple to make our love interests jealous.
I was hesitant, but went along with it anyway. To my utter shock, his crazy plan worked.
Now I was dating the supposed man of my dreams, and my best friend had the woman of his.
But there was one problem.
I couldn’t stop thinking about Declan.
Those feelings we were trying to fake?
Yeah…I wasn’t pretending anymore.

These two became total besties fast, but we could tell the feelings were certainly brewing but neither one of them wanted to admit it since they were both crushing on other people at their jobs.   But you know what they say, ya always want what someone else has, day late, dollar short kinda thing.  Question is, is it going to be TOO late to NOT PRETEND ANYMORE?     I adored this book and read it one sitting!  I give this one a Five Pink M&Ms!!
