synopsis

Jack Valentini isn’t my type.

Sexy, brooding cowboys are fine in the movies, but in real life, I prefer a suit and tie. Proper manners. A close shave.

Jack might be gorgeous, but he’s also scruffy, rugged, and rude. He wants nothing to do with a “rich city girl” like me, and he isn’t afraid to say so.

But I’ve got a PR job to do for his family’s farm, so he’s stuck with me for ten days, and I’m stuck with him. His glares. His moods. His tight jeans. His muscles.

His huge, hard muscles.

Pretty soon there’s a whole different kind of tension between us, the kind that has me misbehaving in barns, trees, and pickup trucks. I’ve never done anything so out of character—but it feels too good to stop.

And the more I learn about the grieving ex-Army sergeant, the better I understand him. Losing his wife three years ago left him broken and bitter and blaming himself. He doesn’t think he deserves a second chance at happiness.

But he’s wrong.

I don’t need to be his first love. If only he’d let me be his last.

AFTER WE FALL AVAILABLE NOW FALL.jpg

Shera 5

A sweet, rich city girl and a hot, delicious, brooding country boy? Yes PLEASE, if it’s Melanie Harlow giving me the story! Once again, she does NOT disappoint with her newest novel After We Fall. I fell fast, I fell deep and I fell so freaking hard in absolute unwavering love with Jack and Margot!

Margot heads out to the country to help the Valentini brothers with some much needed branding. Only one problem, everyone is on board except Jack. He wants absolutely no part of changing one single thing about the farm, let alone anything in his life. This hot, sexy farmer can’t let go of the past and keeps himself entirely closed off. When Margot shows this country boy that she may be a city gal but she is one who is quick learner, smart and doesn’t mind getting her nails, or those boots dirty it stirs something within him. She surprises him at every turn and despite his very carefully constructed walls, Margot begins to break them down and Jack shows Margot something she’s never felt before.

What happens when those walls start to crumble? Does something beautiful blossom or does it all come tumbling down? Well, you’ll have to read to find out! I laughed, I cried, I swooned. This book had everything you want in a good read to cozy up with and spend the entire day glued to your e-reader. I once again bow down to Melanie Harlow for another brilliant read!

excerpt

“Wow,” she said, shutting the screen door behind her. “That was close. Thank you so much.”

“You’re welcome.” I crossed my arms, wishing I’d thought to grab a shirt. “Want to tell me what you were doing out there?”

Her cheeks colored. “Um, I was taking a run.”

“Up a tree?”

She laughed nervously. “No. Well, I didn’t start out in a tree. That happened later.”

I cocked my head, unable to resist giving her a hard time. Not so sure of yourself now, are you, Barbie? “Oh yeah?”

“Yes. See, I left the cottage I’m renting without using the bathroom by mistake,” she began, twisting her fingers together, “and I was planning on running a loop around the farm, but it’s bigger than I thought.”

“Ah. So you were looking for a bathroom in the woods?”

“Well, yes.” She swallowed. “Sort of. But then I heard a splash and saw you…” Her cheeks were practically purple now.

I played dumb. “Saw me what?”

“Saw you naked, OK?” she blurted, throwing her hands up. “I admit it—I saw you naked.”

I had no hangups about nudity, but I was damn serious about my privacy, and about people sneaking up on me. But her embarrassment was funny. The two times I’d seen her before, she’d been so polished and poised. It felt good to put her in her place a little. “So you climbed a tree for a better view, is that it?”

Bowing her head, she dragged the toe of one shoe across the wood planks of the porch floor. “Something like that.” Then she looked up at me. Took a breath. “I’m really sorry. I shouldn’t have done that. I was—I mean, I got—I couldn’t—” She sighed, briefly closing her eyes. “I have no excuse. Will you accept my apology?”

She was prettier without makeup, I decided. And the way she wore her hair off her face emphasized the wideness of her eyes, the angle of her cheekbones, the arch of her brows. Her lips didn’t need all that glossy crap, either. They were a perfect rosy pink, and I wondered if they’d feel as soft as they looked. Continue reading

synopsis

He’s back.

Not just back in town, but living in the flat right beneath mine. And he looks good enough to eat, which is just one more reason to stay away from him.

But I can’t resist.

The sex is incredible (pretty sure we’ve shaken the house right off its foundation), but he can’t fool me—not this time. A degree in marketing and five years in advertising have taught me that “true love” is a fairy tale used to sell lipstick, diamonds, and perfume. It doesn’t exist.

He thinks I’m wrong, and he wants to prove it.

I think he’s crazy, so I dare him to try.

It might be the biggest mistake of my life.

synopsis

On the surface, I have it all—a career I adore, a loving family, the Nixon metabolism but not the Nixon ears, and a salary that supports my lavish taste in designer shoes, fine wine, and lacy lingerie…but I have no one to share it with.Until the day I run into him—my one night stand from college with the cocky smile, let’s-get-out-of-here eyes, and dirty, dirty mouth.

Levi Brooks is six feet four inches of hot bearded fantasy. A sexy single dad with broad shoulders, strong hands, and a fantastically big…heart. (I mean, it’s massive. And generous. And it pumps so hard… um. Sorry. Lost my place.)

But he lives for his son, and he’s keeping me at a distance because he thinks I deserve someone better—a man who can give me more time, more attention, more of himself. He doesn’t believe he could ever be enough.

But he’s wrong.

He’s everything.

review
Some Sort of Love is this third book in the Happy, Crazy, Love, Series. This book follows Jillian and Levi. Melanie Harlow continues to deliver exceptionally written, deliriously Happy, brilliantly Crazy, seriously sexy Love stories to us. The title of this series is certainly appropriately named!

I really hope as you read this, that you’ve taken the time to read Some Sort of Happy ( Skylar and Sebastian ) and Some Sort of Crazy ( Natalie and Miles ) the first two books in this series. These books are phenomenal, the characters will grip your hand and take you on a glorious ride and of course Some Sort of Love is no different.

I won’t go into story details. Just know that you will fall in love with Levi and Jillian’s story. Beautiful, endearing, smart, sexy, pull at your heart-strings and all-consuming. <- THAT is their story. One you MUST read.

Let me tell you why I simply adore this author. She has the ability to write about, well anything. She has the ability to make you laugh, cry, have your heart beating out of your chest and fall head over heels with any character she presents to you. I’ve read many of her books but the Happy, Crazy, Love series was on a completely different level. Her others were great, but these. These are just phenomenal. It’s one of those series that you’ll read and probably read it again at some point. These characters while they all have completely different stories to tell, one thing remains the same. Consistency. Melanie Harlow’s consistency with her writing is bar none. There are so many words that I associate with this author. Amazing, talented, consistent, crisp and eloquent. I could go on and on, but you get the picture. Her books are amazing and I think you should pick them all up.

Melanie Harlow is unstoppable. Her books are absolutely unputdownable, simply delicious, devourable morsels of all out greatness! I can’t get enough of these characters or this author! I am in LOVE with this series.

This deserves way more than 5 Stars! Shera – Book Lovers Obsession Book Blog

Some Sort of Crazy Cover HH Blurb  (1)

synopsis

When a psychic tells Natalie Nixon her life is about to be upended by a mysterious stranger, she laughs it off. After all, she has everything she’s ever wanted—a successful bakery, the perfect boyfriend, and the keys to her dream house.

Who could possibly make her want to throw all that away?

Then Miles Haas comes back to town.

But he’s no stranger—they’ve known each other since high school. Plus, he’s only around for the summer, he’s still a shameless playboy, and he makes a living writing articles for a men’s magazine with titles like ‘Should You Bang the Boss’s Daughter? A Flowchart’ and ‘Butt Stuff for Beginners: A Field Guide.’

He’s not the man of her dreams, and she’s not about to abandon everything she’s worked so hard for just for a little fun. Except he makes her laugh like no one else, smells like heaven, and wears panty-melting glasses.

synopsis
Skylar Nixon is a twenty-seven year old failed actress with no Plan B. After a humiliating stint on a reality TV show crushes what’s left of her childhood dream, she finds herself back in her hometown with no money saved, no college degree, and no confidence she’s anything but a joke—a small town starlet who couldn’t hack it in the big city.
When she runs into former classmate Sebastian Pryce, she can’t believe the hot body and chiseled jaw belong to the shy, troubled loner she knew ten years before. He’s not exactly friendly at first, and she’s heard the rumors about his tragic past, but something in his sad eyes intrigues her. She only wants to get to know him better.
Until the night she wants more—and takes it. (Hard and deep. Twice.)
Are they just two lonely people seeking solace? Or can a disgraced beauty queen and flawed, frustrated man find some sort of happy ever after?
**SOME SORT OF HAPPY is a full-length, dual POV novel, complete with a happy ending.**

 reviewReviewed by Shera 5 of 5 HAPPY stars!

Some Sort of Happy is book one in the Happy Crazy Love Series by the fantastic Melanie Harlow. I loved her other books but this book just blew me away! This book was a different turn than Melanie’s other books and what a RIGHT turn it was!!

Melanie managed to touch on a very serious subject that isn’t talked about much and still write a light, airy, heart wrenching book. While your heart breaks at times, others you will find yourself in a fit of laughter or your heart pounding a mile a minute because you are in absolute love with these characters.

Sebastian Pryce is one helluva man. In school, he was not so popular mainly because of his issues. Now years later he has grown into one gorgeous, sweet, mind blowing man. He still has his quirks, but in my eyes they are just quirks, in his eyes they are the reason he will be alone forever.

Sebastian always had a thing for Skylar in school, I mean who didn’t she was gorgeous but he never let on about it. Skylar comes back home embarrassed of something she did in the past, she feels like a failure, little does this girl realize just how much spunk and will power she has. Set to find her way, find a new job and make it on her own.

Now these two run into each other almost 10 years later and well, the rest is history. Skylar and Sebastian have immediate chemistry. The more Skylar learns about Sebastian the more she falls. The more she falls the more frustrated she becomes. She wants him to let her in; the problem is Sebastian struggles and doesn’t know how.

“You’re a beautiful, brilliant, complicated man, Sebastian Pryce. And I adore you. But if you want to suffer here alone with your tortured soul because you think for some f***ed up reason you deserve it, fine. Choose suffering over me. But I can’t watch it. It will destroy me” ~ Skylar

The road isn’t easy. It’s rocky, slippery at times but beautiful. Will Skylar break through Sebastian’s walls? Will these two find love and finally let it in?

This book was witty, sexy, and heart-wrenchingly beautiful. Easily one of my top reads of this year! 5 fantastic stars for Some Sort of Happy!
