*Blog Tour/Review* Not Pretending Anymore by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

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.

Molly is in desperate need for a roommate and so far every woman has come to her door has been a complete dud for one reason or another.  Enter D. Tate… who is certainly NOT a woman by any means but he was sure he could make his new perspective roomie, see it his way.   I was sure Declan was on his way to winning Molly over with his charming charisma but Molly wasn’t having until her love for frosting changed her mind!     I loved the banter between Declan and Molly from the start.   I knew I was going to love these two and I was right, I totally did!

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!!

In the middle of a crowded bar in our small Alaskan town, my estranged wife snuggles up to me as if we’re still a happy couple.

Don’t get me wrong, we were a happy couple—before she walked out on me a year ago. We were the high school sweethearts everyone thought were destined to be together forever. We thought so too, which is why we married shortly after graduation.

We had a good marriage. Until she left me without any real explanation.

Now, she’s back—and this is the real kicker—she has amnesia and thinks I’m still her husband. Technically I am, although the divorce papers are sitting at the lawyer’s office.

She’s desperate to remember her life in Sunrise Bay but I only want to find out why she left me. Once we conjure that memory up, it’s sayonara because there’s no second chances here. But as you probably already figured out, things didn’t go quite as I planned.

*Blog Tour/Review* The Invitation by Vi Keeland

Title: The Invitation
Author: Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 18, 2021
The first time I met Hudson Rothschild was at a wedding. I’d received an unexpected invitation to one of the swankiest venues in the city. 
Hudson was a groomsman and quite possibly the most gorgeous man I’d ever laid eyes on. He asked me to dance, and our chemistry was off the charts.
I knew it wasn’t a good idea to get involved with him, considering the wedding I was at. But our connection was intense, and I was having a great time.
Though the fun came to a screeching halt when Hudson figured out I wasn’t who I’d said I was. You see, that unexpected invitation I received? Well, it hadn’t actually been addressed to me—it was sent to my ex-roommate who’d bounced a check for two months’ rent and moved out in the middle of the night. I figured she owed me an expensive night out, but I guess, technically, I was crashing the wedding.
Once caught, I couldn’t get out of there fast enough. As I bolted for the door, I might’ve plucked a few bottles of expensive champagne off the tables I passed, all while the gorgeous, angry groomsman was hot on my tail.
Outside, I jumped into a taxi. My heart ricocheted against my ribs as we drove down the block—but at least I’d escaped unscathed.
Or so I thought.
Until I realized I’d left my cell phone behind at the table.
Take one guess who found it?
This is the crazy story of how Hudson Rothschild and I met. But trust me, it’s only the tip of the iceberg.

GAHHHHH! Let me count thy ways I loved this story so…… Hudson and Stella’s story……. MUWAH *Kiss* Perfection!! Add in a little sweet splash of Charlie and it was just over the top perfection. I ADORED The Invitation. This one had me ALL up in my feels.

Hudson Rothschild is the kinda man that every gal needs and my girl Stella, this chick could totally be my sidekick and SLAY everyday of the week! I freaking just loved how these two met…The Invitation, oh that Invitation certainly kicked off a chain reaction which led to the explosive chemistry that was Stella and Hudson.

This book was such a sweet, swoony, steamy and FUN read! Get yourself an invitation to THE INVITATION by one clicking this divine read today! READ this book. You are gonna absolutely LOVE Vi Keeland’s latest and greatest!

*Blog Tour/Review* The Rivals by Vi Keeland

Title: The Rivals

Author: Vi Keeland

Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance

Release Date: July 13, 2020

The feud between Weston Lockwood and me started at the altar.
Only neither of us attended the wedding, and the nuptials happened decades before either of us was born.  Our grandfathers had been best friends and business partners, at least up until my  grandfather’s wedding day—when his bride-to-be blurted out she couldn’t marry him because she was also in love with Weston‘s grandfather.
The two men  spent years fighting over Grace Copeland, who also happened to be their third business partner.  But in the end, neither man could steal half of her
heart away from the other.  
Eventually,  they all went their separate ways.  Our
grandfathers married other women, and the two men became one of the biggest
business rivals in history.  
Our fathers  continued the family tradition of feuding.
And then Weston and I did, too.  
For the most part, we kept as much distance as possible. Until the day the woman who started the feud died—and unexpectedly left one of the most valuable hotels in the world to our grandfathers to share.  Now I’m stuck in a hotel with the man I was born to hate, trying to unravel the mess  our families inherited. As usual, it didn’t take long for us to be at each other’s throats.  Weston Lockwood was everything I hated: tall, smart, cocky, and too gorgeous for his own good.  We were fire and ice.  But that shouldn’t be an issue. Our families were used to being at war. There was just one minor problem, though.   Every time Weston and I fought, we somehow wound up in bed.

My planned trip for two unexpectedly turned into a trip for one. Rather than let

my breakup get me down, I packed my bags and decided a week at a luxury

resort was just what I needed.

But one calamity after the next, and suddenly I was stuck without a hotel room,

along with a few hundred other people.

It looked like my fancy vacation was about to turn into me sleeping on the hotel

lobby floor.

Until I overheard a gorgeous man pretending to be someone he wasn’t in order

to steal a reservation from a guest who hadn’t shown up yet.

When I realized there were two rooms, instead of calling him out, I pretended to

be his sister. That’s how the story of “Milo and Maddie Hooker” began.

We were the Hookers.

My depressing trip quickly made a U-turn into an adventure.

My fake brother spent the next few days showing me around his hometown.

When it was time to leave, neither of us really wanted to go yet.

So, instead of flying back to our respective homes, we ventured on a road trip.

At every stop, we’d pick up souvenirs.

But as hot as our chemistry was, we never crossed the line.

Milo knew I’d just come out of a tough relationship and didn’t want to mess with

a vulnerable woman.

So instead, at the end of our trip, we made a pact to meet again in three

months.

It was always my intention to meet him.

But when I got back home, reality hit in a big way.

And I worried I may have lost my handsome stranger forever.

Was there a place for him in my future?

Or had the memory of him just become my favorite souvenir?

Maddie and Milo have become MY FAVORITE Souvenir from the fabulous ViPen Duo! The Hookers were such a treat to spend time with!

We find ourselves with two strangers who become travel partners in the funniest way and they totally took a mini vacation in my heart!  I absolutely loved this book!  They find themselves in an adventure most is us can only dream of.

In true fashion from these authors, I found myself devouring the book and loving every minute of this sweet easy read. It has everything as usual that these authors love to give. Sexy, steamy, angst, humor and banter off the charts. But…the TWIST!!!! Lawddddd the twist was EPIC! The entire book was equally as Epic through and through!

I just love whatever these two authors throw at us!!

*Blog Tour/Review* Just One Year by Penelope Ward

JUST ONE YEAR IS LIVE!

 

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

The beginning of my sophomore year in college was off to a rough start.

On the first day of orientation, I had an altercation with an infuriating British dude in a campus bathroom.

(The ladies’ room was out of order. So, I used the men’s room. Don’t judge.)

I got home later that night and realized that the foreign student we were expecting to rent a room in my parents’ house was allergic to our cat.

So, the spare room went to someone else: Caleb—the British guy from the men’s room.

And so it began…my love-hate story with Caleb Yates. Or was it hate-love in that order?

The guy knew how to push every one of my buttons.

Sometimes I’d email him to express my aggravation and disdain.

He’d actually rewrite my own words and send them back to me.

That was the type of infuriating person Caleb was.

So frustrating.

And…

Sometimes incredibly funny and endearingly sweet.

And hot.

He eventually grew on me, and Caleb soon became one of my best friends that year.

Too bad he was headed back to England soon, so nothing could happen between us—for so many reasons.

I definitely couldn’t fall in love with him, especially since all we had was just one year.

This book was pure LOVE at first “smell”  for me *snickers*.  I absolutely flat out adored Caleb and all his British charm from the get go.  There was no having to make me fall in love with character, it happened effortlessly and instantly.

I loved Caleb and Teagan’s friends to lovers romance.   Just One Year had me laughing out loud and also tugged at my heart strings while being completely swoon worthy in true Penelope Ward fashion.

Both of these characters have troubled pasts and I loved reading how they help each other work through them and watching their story unfold.   This book was fast paced and kept me interested the entire time.  I read this beauty in one sitting which this author seems to have a knack for making me do with just about every single one of her books.  I never want to stop till the very last word!

I can’t wait to see what she gives us next.  Ms. Ward has always and will continue to be a go-to one-click author for me as I am sure to love whatever story she gives us!

*Release Blitz/Review* Crazy Heifer (Valentine Boys #2) by Lani Lynn Vale

The Valentine Boys #2
Release Date: February 25
I fell in love with his rope skills.
I stayed because somehow he took hold of my heart and made it his.
Callum Valentine didn’t mean to eavesdrop. Then again? When a man is calling a
woman fat right in front of your table, it’s kind of hard not to intervene.
Especially when the town’s most beautiful creature ever is the one being called
fat.
Desi just wants to be left alone. After an ugly divorce, she thinks she’s in
the clear. Then her ex takes it upon himself to continue to make her life
miserable, giving Desi no choice but to take it or leave.
In fact, her bags were nearly all the way packed when Callum poked his nose
into the most embarrassing spectacle the town of Kilgore has ever witnessed.
The moment he declares her his and off limits, everything changes—and
definitely not for the better.
As if things couldn’t get worse than being called a pitiful, fat heifer in
front of the hottest man she’s ever seen, Callum has to go and say that she’s
his, and they have to play a game that she’s not quite sure she wants to be
playing.
But before her eyes, things change. And suddenly the rules of the game aren’t
clear. And they’re crossing boundaries neither one of them see coming.

*Blog Tour/Review* The Day He Came Back by Penelope Ward

THE DAY HE CAME BACK IS LIVE!

A Standalone Contemporary Romance

New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author

Penelope Ward

It was the summer of my life.

I’d met the guy of my dreams.

Unfortunately, he was the son of my uppity employer—and very much off-limits.

But Gavin was a rebel. He knew his mother would disown him if she found out about us; in his eyes, we just had to be careful.

He never treated me as his mother did—like hired help.

Instead, Gavin put me on a pedestal and loved me harder than I’d ever been loved in my life.

What a summer it was.

Until it all ended—badly.

I was never supposed to see Gavin again.

That didn’t stop me from thinking about him every day for ten years.

I knew little about his life now, just that he was an entrepreneur living an ocean away.

When a twist of fate had me working again in the very place our love affair started a decade earlier, I knew it was only a matter of time before I might see him again.

But I wasn’t prepared.

What if he hated me?

What if he loved someone else now?

I wasn’t prepared for all the unknowns.

And most of all, I wasn’t prepared for today to be the day he came back.

I absolutely loved Raven and Gavin’s story. Gavin’s the rich boy, Raven is the maid’s daughter both from two very different sides of the Bay. These two have an undeniable, indisputable chemistry and find themselves in a summer of fun, stolen glances and sizzling kisses but when summer is over and Gavin is off to college where will that leave these two?

I loved this rich boy/poor girl story. There was so much more behind both of these characters then I was expecting and as usual I was not disappointed. Obviously with the title you can probably figure out that someone leaves and comes back, but the back story behind it all is a little crazy, angsty, heartbreaking and a good old second chance at romance that I am a total sucker for. The Day He Came Back had a little of everything I love in a good read that keeps me interested and as always look forward to the next book from this author. I know I didn’t give you much here to go off of because I don’t want to spoil anything here but this is one you definitely want to pick up and read.

*Blog Tour/Review* All Grown Up by Vi Keeland

ALL GROWN UP IS LIVE!

A Standalone Contemporary Romance

#1 New York Times Bestselling Author Vi Keeland

 

When I first encountered Ford Donovan, I had no idea who he was…well, other than the obvious. Young, gorgeous, successful, smart. Did I mention young? If I did, it bears repeating. Ford Donovan was too young for me.

Let’s back up to how it all started. My best friend decided I needed to start dating again. So, without my knowledge, she set up a profile for me on a popular dating site—one that invited men ages twenty-one to twenty-seven to apply for a date. Those nicknamed Cunnilingus King were told they’d go straight to the top for consideration. The profile wasn’t supposed to go live. Another point that bears repeating—it wasn’t supposed to.

Nevertheless, that’s how I met Ford, and we started messaging. He made me laugh; yet I was adamant that because of his age, we could only be friends. But after weeks of wearing me down, I finally agreed to one date only—my first after twenty years of being with my high school sweetheart. I knew it couldn’t last, but I was curious about him.

Though, you know what they say…curiosity kills the cat.

My legs wobbled walking into the restaurant.

Ford was seated at the bar. When he turned around, he took my breath away.

His sexy smile nearly melted my panties.

But…he looked so familiar.

As I got closer I realized why.

He was the son of the neighbor at our family’s summer home.

The boy next door.

Only now…he was all man.

I hadn’t seen him in years.

I left the restaurant and planned to put the entire crazy thing behind me.

Which I did. Until summer came.

And guess who decided to use his family’s summer home this year?

I absolutely loved Ford and Valentina! All Grown Up is another fantastic read from the ever talented Vi Keeland!

Ford was the boy next door and there was no way Valentina was getting involved, nope not happening. They had an unlikely connection with their age , Ford much younger than Valentina but these two certainly prove age is nothing but a number as the heart wants what it wants! This is the first book I’ve read the female falls for a much younger male and everything about Ford had me absolutely melting into a puddle of goo while reading this story! I don’t think I could love a character more than I loved Ford!!

All Grown Up certainly had a different twist of a storyline with the older female/younger male that we don’t see much of but what is 100% guaranteed with every book this talented author puts out is that you’ll fall head over heels in love with the story. She always gives us amazing stories that are full of banter, all the feels, swoony, sexy moments that will leave you not wanting it to end. I can’t wait for the next delicious read Vi Keeland gives us!!
