Synopsis:

Billy Winston’s family is going to see him happy and in love if it’s the last thing they do.

No one deserves a happily-ever-after quite as much as the second oldest Winston brother and his lady love, Claire McClure (aka Scarlet St. Claire). Cruelty and circumstance tore them apart almost twenty years ago. Secrecy and bitterness kept them separated.

But you know who’s tired of their separation and stubbornness? Everyone. Especially Billy Winston’s family. And now they’re going to do something about it.

Well-meaning interference means the star-crossed lovers can’t stop tripping over each other in the hills of Tuscany, the catacombs of Rome, and the waterways of Venice. Billy and Claire find themselves thrown together and at the mercy of the Winston siblings’ shenanigans.

But will their forced proximity bring them together? Or push them even further apart?

This second-chance romance brings back the entire Winston gang, playing cupid in one last story of love, hi-jinks, and family collusion.

BEARD NECESSITIES is a full-length contemporary romantic comedy, and can be read as a stand-alone, but it’s probably best read after books 0.5, 2, 3, 5, and 6 of the Winston Brothers series.


If Beard with Me was a storm, Beard Necessities was the rainbow left in its aftermath. It was everything I needed after finishing Beard with Me. It brought hope, love and understanding in all the ways I wanted. I honestly couldn’t think of any better way to complete Billy and Scarlett’s story. It was filled with all the Winston goodness. Everyone in action to help push Billy and Scarlet together was heartwarming and hilarious. I couldn’t get enough of it. Add in the fact that there’s an epilogue that wraps up the series perfectly, and I couldn’t ask for more. Well, maybe a new Winston sibling to keep the series going, but I get that it has to end at some point.

Thank you, Penny Reid, for bringing us all full circle with Beard Necessities.

Review: All Wrapped Up for the Holidays

All Wrapped Up for the Holidays
Authors: Vi Keeland, Penelope Ward, Colleen Hoover, Kristen Ashley, Jill Shalvis, K. Bromberg, Elle Kennedy
Publication Date: November 30, 2019
Genre: Contemporary Romance, New Adult, Holiday, Anthologies

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Synopsis:

The Merry Mistake by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

Note to self: Ask Santa for glasses this year. When I accidentally mistook a gorgeous man resting outside my building for a homeless person in need of lunch, we got into it. I’d only been trying to do a good deed around the holidays, but he called me righteous. I called him something far worse. If only I didn’t have to see him again. But fate had other plans.

Finding Perfect by Colleen Hoover

A short story that brings back several of Colleen’s most beloved characters. Told from the point of view of Daniel from Finding Cinderella, readers will finally get the story they’ve been begging for more of. For the best reading experience, make sure you’ve read all three books that come together to make up this heartwarming and fun Holiday short story; Finding Cinderella, Hopeless and All Your Perfects.

A Rock Chick Christmas by Kristen Ashley

What’s Christmas with the Starks like? Get a peek into the Rock Chick world and how Luke copes with Ava going Christmas gaga and just what he will, and won’t, do for his girls during the holidays.

Just Say When by Jill Shalvis

When the one you want …

Is the one you can’t seem to have…

Can love conquer all?

The Pact by Elle Kennedy

Thanks to my hectic schedule as a pro hockey player, my girl and I are spending more time apart than together. Luckily, I have a solution–a romantic New Year’s Eve getaway in the mountains, just me and Grace and plenty of sexytimes. Except this blizzard has other ideas…

The Package by K. Bromberg

Christmas week can’t get any worse for Jules Jilliland. Dumped by her boyfriend, rear-ended on the freeway, and fired from her job, she finds herself stuck in an elevator with a handsome stranger. When their packages are accidentally swapped, will it end up being a misfortunate accident that suddenly brightens her holidays?


All Wrapped Up for the Holidays is an anthology you can download for FREE on BookFunnel right now. It’s filled with great short stories about some new to me and some favorite old characters. Here are my thoughts on each novella in the anthology.

The Merry Mistake ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I loved this novella. It was so cute and fun. It had Keeland and Ward’s trademark banter and chemistry. I would love to read more about these characters.

Finding Perfect ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
This ties for my favorite in this anthology. It’s a kind of an epilogue that ties Finding Cinderella and All Your Perfects together. You could read it without reading those two books, but it wouldn’t be as satisfying. I admit to tearing up while reading this novella. It was a conclusion I didn’t know I needed.

A Rock Chick Christmas – DNF
The DNF is not a reflection on this novella. I have not read this author before, so I’m guessing this was kind of an update to a previous series. There were a lot of different characters and what was going on with them. Since I wasn’t familiar with them, I didn’t finish reading it. The writing was good. I just think I would want to read the series before reading this novella.

Just Say When ★ ★ ★ ★
It’s always fun to be back in Heartbreaker Bay. This novella was only two (long) chapters, but it told a good story. My only issue is I wanted MORE. I needed like a whole book to really be into the story — or even just a longer novella with more before stuff.

The Pact ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
This Grace and Logan (The Mistake) novella was my other favorite in this series because… Grace and Logan. I am always happy to return to an Off-Campus couple and this story was so fun and sweet. It was perfect for the two of them… and me.

The Package ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I haven’t read much from K. Bromberg, but I loved this novella. It has me wanting to read more. I would have been cool with an entire novel about this couple.

Overall, All Wrapped Up for Christmas was a super fun way to kick off the holiday season. I loved connection with some old favorite characters and meeting some new ones.

Helena Hunting & L.J. Shen
Just The Tip
It’s not every day you meet a stranger who knows how to jingle your bells…

Corinne Michaels & Melanie Harlow
Baby it’s Cold Outside
My Christmas list did not include a broken heart, freezing temperatures, or my tree stuck in the door to my apartment building, but that’s what I got. Just when I thought Santa had failed me, I got something I never thought to ask for …

Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward
Kissmas in New York
It was just supposed to be a simple kiss with a stranger.  I’d done it to prove a point–that I hadn’t lost my sense of adventure. But you know what they say about the best laid plans. Maybe I’d get something in my stocking after all this holiday season…

Sierra Simone & Kennedy Ryan
The Christmas Crown
Noelani, queen of Manaroa, has one mission on her diplomatic visit to the States: forge strategic alliances for her homeland. When she meets brooding security specialist Brock Grimsby, their unexpected alliance heats up the holiday. One night. No promises, but come Christmas, will either be able to walk away?

Penny Reid & LH Cosway

CHRISTMAS IN THE CITY is a holiday gift as a thank you! It is available for a LIMITED TIME!


I have to admit I didn’t know who all was a part of of this anthology before purchasing because all I saw was Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy & Jamie & Wes and hit one-click. Then, I got the added bonus of seeing several authors I’ve read and loved. This Christmas in the City collection is a no-brainer. Fans will want to read it. Here are my reviews for each short story.

Just the Tip ★ ★ ★ ★ ½
The chemistry in this one was HOT. It got almost a little nutty, but that added a funny aspect to the story.

Baby It’s Cold Outside ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I really loved this collaboration. I’ve only read one of the books they collaborated on before and it wasn’t my favorite, but this one was really fun. I loved the little connections in it.

Kissmiss in New York ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I love Keeland & Ward’s collaborations and this novella was no different. It was so much fun to read and managed to surprise me.

The Christmas Crown ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Simone + Kennedy = FIRE
There’s really no other way to describe their writing together. They make insta-love work in this short story.

Songbird ★ ★ ★ ★ ½
This Reid-Cosway collaboration was shorter than I wanted, but I really enjoyed it. I would love to see it become a full length novel.

EPIC ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Wesmie… Wes & Jaime… It’s always a pleasure to be back in their world. I love where this short story went. I would have been even happier if it was a full length novel because, well, Wesmie…

So, yeah. This was an EXCELLENT compilation of Christmas themed romance. I highly recommend it and it’s FREE for a limited time.

Series Review: Kiss Me (Emma Hart)

Emma Hart is one of those authors who can be hit or miss for me — most being hits. I really wanted to read the second book in the Kiss Me series, so I decided to go ahead and binge the entire thing. Here are my short but sweet thoughts on each of these Contemporary Romances.


Kiss Me Not★ ★ ★

To be honest, Kiss Me Not is not my favorite Emma Hart novel. It was a fun read, but it didn’t feel like it had much of story to it. Halley’s personality was kind of off-putting. She was supposed to be cooky and she her weirdness as something to hide behind, but I didn’t really find her all that cooky besides the racoon thing. I didn’t get the enemies vibe she had going with Preston. She had a crush on him, yet she threw all this nasty banter his way. He gave it right back, but it just didn’t make sense to me. What was adorable was the way Halley and Preston ended up getting together. The end of the book reinforced that fact that I wanted to read Kiss Me Tonight.


Kiss Me Tonight★ ★ ★ ★ ½

Kiss Me Tonight was almost everything I hoped it was going to be. I loved Reagan and Noah together. The way they met over text was hilarious and continued to be hilarious as they texted throughout the story. Reagan was a little over the top, but her personality felt true to her character. Noah was, well Noah. I loved him. The only slight issue I had with this story was the short length of time it took place over. I would have loved to have seen it play out over months, not just weeks.


Kiss Me Again★ ★ ★ ★

Kiss Me Again was and wasn’t a lot like Kiss Me Not. Again, both Ava and Ethan have been secretly in love with each other for years. They also treat each other like dirt and argue constantly. Their connection, Ava’s brother Leo, has always known they like each other. That’s where the similarities end. Ava and Ethan go all out war with each other and I loved the hi-jinks. I still didn’t get the animosity, but it was easy to stomach this go around. I enjoyed this one more than the first one. It had me laughing a lot.

Overall thoughts on this series:

Kiss Me ties together by the three best friends who are main characters. They all had over the top personalities that would probably rub a lot of men or even people wrong. Halley and Ava’s enemies (or really you could just call it being mean to your crush) relationships were almost too similar. My favorite of the bunch had to be Reagan’s book with all the hilarious texting. Overall, it was a good series.

Review: The Rebel King (Kennedy Ryan)

The Rebel King
Series: All the King’s Men Duet, #2
Author: Kennedy Ryan
Publication Date: November 18, 2019
Publisher: Scribechick Media, LLC
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Synopsis:

Ambition. Revenge. Love.

Rita Award-winning author Kennedy Ryan delivers the gripping conclusion to the All the King’s Men Duet.

Raised to resist. Bred to fight. Survival is in my blood and surrender is never an option.

Though surrender is what Maxim Cade demanded of my body and heart, I had other plans. We were fast-burning fascination and combustible chemistry, but the man I trusted with everything was a trickster. A thief who stole my love. If what we had was a lie, why did it feel so real? The man I swore to hate will have it all, and wants me at his side. But power is a game, and we’re the pawns and players.

Facing insurmountable odds, will we win the world, or will we lose it all?


I’m at a loss for words after finishing The Rebel King. I’m in a state of shock and awe. I don’t know what I expected, but whatever it was, it wasn’t the direction this book ended up taking. Some parts killed me emotionally. Other parts brought my heart back to life. The Rebel King had the perfection storm of emotions and once again proved why Kennedy Ryan is a force in the contemporary romance world. She always teaches me so much when she could simply entertain. I’m in awe of her writing, her research, and her heart. The Rebel King was worth every frustrating minute of wait over the three-week period after the The Kingmaker release. It was a satisfying end to an outstanding duet.

Review: The One for You (Roni Loren)

The One for You
Series: The Ones Who Got Away, #4
Author: Roni Loren
Publication Date: December 31, 2019
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Note: This review is for an ARC and is my unbiased opinion.

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Synopsis:

The highly-anticipated fourth book in Roni Loren’s unforgettable The Ones Who Got Away series.

She got a second chance at life.
Will she take a second chance at love?

Kincaid Breslin wasn’t supposed to survive that fateful night at Long Acre when so many died, including her boyfriend—but survive she did. She doesn’t know why she got that chance, but now she takes life by the horns and doesn’t let anybody stand in her way

Ashton Isaacs was her best friend when disaster struck all those years ago, but he chose to run as far away as he could. Now fate has brought him back to town, and Ash doesn’t know how to cope with his feelings for Kincaid and his grief over their lost friendship. For Ash has been carrying secrets, and he knows that once Kincaid learns the truth, he’ll lose any chance he might have had with the only woman he’s ever loved.


Roni Loren saved the best for last with The One for You. It is by far my favorite book in The Ones Who Got Away series. I want to say there was something so special about it, but it wasn’t just one thing. It was the whole package.

Kincaid has always been the character who stood out for me throughout the whole series. She’s the reason why I kept reading the series because I didn’t want to miss out on anything that led up to her book. I was greatly rewarded for keeping up with the series because Kincaid’s story was EVERYTHING. She thought she lost everything that fateful night of the shooting. While she did lose someone very important to her, she didn’t lose everything. I loved how it took her estranged best friend Ash turning up in town to show her that.

Ash… I didn’t expect his back story to be as important to me as Kincaid’s, but it was. He was such a great guy. He was generous and kind. Ash truly wanted the people he loved to be happy, even if it was at his own expense. His friendship with Kincaid and the direction it took in this book warmed my heart. It was the type of best friends to lovers / almost second chance at love story a romance reader loves.

I truly adored The One for You. It brought the entire The Ones Who Got Away series full circle and ended it in the best way possible. Kudos to Loren for giving us the story we have been waiting for.

Review: Man Cuffed (Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby)

Man Cuffed

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★

Synopsis:

Mac
A good cop can always spot trouble. That’s why my senses started pinging the moment I met the hottie next door. The neighborhood may never be the same. First she confuses me for a male stripper and tries to remove my uniform. (The guys on the force will never let me live that down.) And then there’s the breaking and entering.
I don’t know what to do with her. My libido has a few ideas of its own, though. Bad, bad ideas.

Meg
Hey, it’s not my fault that Hot Cop’s nightstick gets excited every time we see each other. And I can’t help that someone broke into his apartment.
Fine—that last thing was totally my fault. And I intend to make amends. So when he needs a date for his sister’s wedding, I’m there. This is right up my alley. I’m an actor. By the time it’s over, his entire family will believe we’re a couple.
Even him.

Warning: may cause unrestrained giggling in public. Contains: a bridezilla with a turkey leg, a flash mob, and a growly hero.


Oh my goodness. This Man Hands series has been filled with over the top cooky romantic comedies from the start, but I think Man Cuffed might be the zaniest yet. It had one of the funniest beginnings I’ve read in a long time. Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby definitely know how to get a gal hooked from the get-go and keep up the hilarious drama to keep me reading.

Mac and Meg were messes. Both of them. Meg hit 30 and started to worry she hadn’t accomplished enough in life. That led her to move in next door to Mac. Mac’s a hot cop with strict rules about no relationships. The two have undeniable chemistry, which leads to issues because no relationships and a maybe mid-life-ish crisis. Somehow Mac and Meg managed to be super hot together while also being incredibly awkward. Everything that went on was hilarious and that doesn’t even include all of the incredible side character stuff.

I loved every minute of this book. I was hoping and praying that it was going to be the crazy fun book to help get me out of mini-book hangover I was having. It totally was! Thank you, Man Cuffed for being the book I needed you to be.

Review: The Fall of Legend (Meghan March)

The Fall of Legend
Series: Legend Trilogy, #1
Author: Meghan March
Publication Date: November 12, 2019
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Note: This review is for an ARC and is my unbiased opinion.

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ½

Synopsis:

We come from two different worlds.
I’m from the streets. She might as well live in an ivory tower.
I made my living with my fists. I doubt she could even throw a punch.
Our paths never should have crossed.
We never should have met.
That doesn’t change the facts.
I would sell my soul to taste those red lips.
Fight the devil himself to hear her laugh.
Burn in hell to have a single night.
Scarlett Priest shouldn’t even know men like me exist, but sometimes temptation is stronger than will.
If this is how I go down, it’ll be worth every second of the fall.


I have been curious about Legend ever since meeting him in the Dirty Mafia Duet. He almost had a slimy feel in that book, so I was wondering how he would come across in his own book. Legend was a mystery to me and everyone in the book.  It took me awhile to create an opinion of the man, but I ended up genuinely liking what I found. Legend was a good dude trying to be the best for everyone around him.

Meghan March always gives the reader amazing alpha love interests like Legend, but she never skimps on the female heroine either. Scarlett Priest was an effortlessly cool and interesting chick. She had her own ambitions and drive. I loved how that worked into meeting Legend and everything that came after. She was the driving force and pursuer in this relationship. I don’t see a lot of that in romance novels, so it was really cool.

From the start, Legend and Scarlett have this really cool story. I am not going to tell you anything about it because it’s all about experiencing it. There was so much going on and I’m excited to see how everything is connected and what is to come next. The one thing I was a little surprised at was the cliffhanger. It wasn’t quite what I’ve come to expect from Meghan March. It was a little subtler. That’s not a complaint, just a comment. It still left me wanting to know what is coming next in the Legend Trilogy.

Review: Love Her or Lose Her (Tessa Bailey)

Love Her or Lose Her
Series: Hot & Hammered, #2
Author: Tessa Bailey
Publication Date: January 14, 2019
Publisher: Avon
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Note: This review is for an ARC and is my unbiased opinion.

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★

Synopsis:

Rosie and Dominic Vega are the perfect couple: high school sweethearts, best friends, madly in love. Well, they used to be anyway. Now Rosie’s lucky to get a caveman grunt from the ex-soldier every time she walks in the door. Dom is faithful and a great provider, but the man she fell in love with ten years ago is nowhere to be found. When her girlfriends encourage Rosie to demand more out of life and pursue her dream of opening a restaurant, she decides to demand more out of love, too. Three words: marriage boot camp.

Never in a million years did Rosie believe her stoic, too-manly-to-emote husband would actually agree to relationship rehab with a weed-smoking hippy. Dom talking about feelings? Sitting on pillows? Communing with nature? Learning love languages? Nope. But to her surprise, he’s all in, and it forces her to admit her own role in their cracked foundation. As they complete one ridiculous—yet surprisingly helpful—assignment after another, their remodeled relationship gets stronger than ever. Except just as they’re getting back on track, Rosie discovers Dom has a secret… and it could demolish everything.


Most romance novels are about the beginning of a relationship. Some are second chance romances where a couple is reuniting after years apart. Very few romance novels are set in the middle of a relationship. That’s exactly where Love Her or Lose Her is set. It’s set amidst the chaos of relationship gone bad.

Rosie and Dom are childhood sweethearts whose relationship has fallen apart. The crumbling of their marriage has happened gradually for Rosie, but is a surprise to Dom. Dom didn’t realize Rosie was unhappy. Rosie is ready to walk away, but Dom is willing to do whatever it takes to save his marriage.

What I loved about Love Her or Lose Her was the journey it took me on. It’s a story about remembering why you fell in love with someone, figuring out where things broke down along the way, and learning from your mistakes. Dom and Rosie were unique characters going through a made up situation, and yet I could see the truth in their story. It was eye-opening at times to see what Rosie and Dom were going through. There was blame, lack of communication, poor communication, actions, lack of actions, frustration, longing, anger…and yet there was a whole lot of love. Once they opened themselves up and communicated (with the help of a therapist) there was learning and understanding. It’s easy to blame others for a situation without examining our part in it. I loved how Tessa Bailey was able to show this within a relationship. The fact that she was able to do that while adding humor to a very serious story was amazing.

While I loved this book, I do have to admit there were a few things that could have been done better. One was that Dom’s nickname for Rosie. He uses honey girl a lot. Honey girl is an awkward nickname. It’s like an odd combination of honey and baby girl or something. It made me cringe every time I read it. The second thing was that Dom’s back story could have been explored more in-depth. He shut down when he came back from war and it felt like that was barely touched on. The last thing was the POC representation. It was weak, to be honest — just mostly food that Rosie cooked and the color of her body. It would have been nice to have more or better representation.

Overall, Love Her or Lose Her was a sweet story about two people on the brink of divorce finding their way back to each other.

Question: What do you do when you fall for your best friend’s little sister?

More important question: How long can you keep it a secret before it all goes up in flames?

The Billionaire’s Forbidden Little Sister
Authors: Max Monroe
Publication Date: November 7, 2019
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Note: This review is for an ARC and is my unbiased opinion.

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Synopsis:

Theo Cruz, a New York man known for his family’s billion-dollar empire, Cruz Enterprises, has been indicted this afternoon in the Court of Public Opinion on charges of Bro-Code Conspiracy.

Chief counsel for the prosecution, Caplin Hawkins, spoke candidly about the accusation.

“Once thought of as a best friend to many—including myself—Theo Cruz has officially turned his back on human decency. He’s conniving and dishonest, and a habitual offender of Bro-Code Law 676. He’ll rue the day he forgot that you never—under any circumstances—get involved with your best friend’s little sister.”

Fact: I haven’t actually been arrested or indicted.
More important fact: I inadvertently messed up—big-time.

Two strangers in a foreign country, we said hello.
Hello turned into a kiss.
A kiss turned into a rendezvous.
And a rendezvous turned into more than I’d ever imagined.

But her unruly golden curls and beautiful body hid an important detail—She’s my mouthiest billionaire best friend’s forbidden little sister.

Fact: I knew not of my crimes.
More important fact: I know now, but even though I know I’m playing with fire, there’s no way I’m stopping. I can’t leave her alone.

Question: What do you do when you fall for your best friend’s little sister?
More important question: How long can you keep it a secret before it all goes up in flames?


Max Monroe are at it again! They upped the antics in this book and I totally loved it! Want to know why? Here’s a list for you.

  • It’s another younger sister/older brother’s best friend romance in Max Monroe’s Billionaire world. These NEVER get old! This one was so different from the last one of that trope. I love that it didn’t feel like a carbon copy.
  • This book was on FIRE! from the start. The chemistry between Theo and Lena was palpable.
  • Theo was just the right amount of uptight, while Lena was just the right amount of impulsive. It was a winning combination. I loved these two characters.
  • The Italian setting for the first half of the book made me feel like I was on vacation.
  • Cap. I don’t want to exactly say why, but it has everything to do with protecting his baby sister Lena.
  • Max Monroe are always funny, but this is their funniest book in the series. I couldn’t stop laughing while reading it.
  • Brogan. You need to read this book just to meet Brogan. He’s a big part of the laughing above.
  • The Billionaire Book Club was going strong in this one. I loved those texts and interactions surrounding it. They guys are such an entertaining group!

I could go on and on about all the things I loved about The Billionaire’s Forbidden Sister. It was so much fun to read. It’s my new favorite in this series.

The Billionaire’s Forbidden Little Sister, an all-new brother’s best friend rom-com from New York Times bestselling author Max Monroe, is available now!
