“This is the funniest setup I’ve read all year! You’ll be cheering for Winnie and Dex!”
—Sarina Bowen, USA Today bestselling author

Ignite, an all-new sexy, grumpy single dad meets the sunshine girl next door romantic comedy from USA Today and #1 Amazon bestselling author Melanie Harlow, is now live!

My new neighbor is a firefighter—and a scorching hot single dad—but I swear I didn’t set off that smoke alarm on purpose.

(And I was beyond mortified when he rushed in and saw me naked.)

Nothing happened, of course—because I, Winnie MacAllister, romance junkie and owner of a constantly broken heart, have sworn off men for one solid year.

Even protective men with chiseled jaws, bulging biceps, and deep brown eyes that make my breath come faster. Even former SEALs with broad chests and strong hands that make my skin sizzle. Even gorgeous, grumpy guys who have their hands full raising two adorable little girls and claim they don’t believe in love.

Until Dex kisses me one night, and I drop all my defenses.

(Also my underwear.)

He says he’s not gentle, and he’s right. He says I should take the dream job I’m offered in another state, and he’s right. He says he’s too old for me and could never be the man I deserve.

He’s wrong.

Dex and I might be twelve years apart, but the fire between us is the kind that will never burn out.

How can I convince him to give happily-ever-after with me a chance?

My Review...

As a huge fan of the Cloverleigh Farm series, I was so excited to see this new story of the next generation!

This is the story of Winnie and Dex, and boy did this grab me from the get-go!

Winnie is the daughter of Mac and Frannie, she is the youngest, but I felt like she had an old soul. I empathized with her problem of loving too fast, too hard and most often than not it was a huge determent to herself and her heart. So when she decides to focus on herself, that’s when fate pushes the perfect person at her. I loved how her inner dialogue was trying to keep her mind and her heart on the same page.

Dex is a single dad, I absolutely loved his girls! He has told himself that he is happy as he is, there is no need to add more to his world.  Then Winnie walks into it and sparks fly!

This story had the perfect amount of angst and holy smokes the heat and smexiness! The push and pull between Winnie and Dex really ignited the pages of this story!

I am hoping that more of the next generation of characters from the world of Cloverleaf Farms get their stories told too! It was wonderful to read how everyone was doing. It was like a family reunion, and I loved it!

Savage (adjective):
1) Not domesticated; wild and untamed
2) A brutal or vicious person
3) Malek Antonov

Savage Hearts, the highly-anticipated third standalone in the Queens & Monsters mafia romance series by JT Geissinger is available now!

Savage (adjective):
1) Not domesticated; wild and untamed
2) A brutal or vicious person
3) Malek Antonov

When my older sister calls out of the blue to announce she’s getting married, it’s a shock. She’s
not the settling-down kind, and we haven’t spoken in almost three years.
Even more of a shock? Sloane wants me to visit her and meet her new fiancé. Curious, I decide
to take her up on the offer.
I should’ve known something was wrong when she wouldn’t tell me where I’d be going. I
should’ve known things were odd when she sent a private jet to pick me up. But there’s no way
in hell I could’ve ever guessed what would happen when I finally meet her fiancé.
Declan O’Donnell.
Head of the Irish Mob.
Target of a savage Bratva assassin who wants revenge for the murder of his brother.
Now, I’m thousands of miles from home, I’m smack in the middle of a mafia war, and I’ve got a
Russian assassin who’s decided he likes the looks of me.
They say revenge is a dish best served cold.
They never met Malek Antonov.


“Yeah. Oh—can I ask you a favor? Will you please not hurt him? Kieran, either. He’s the other bodyguard. The bigger one. They’re both really nice.”
Malek stares at me in disbelief.
“Sorry. Is that asking too much? It’s just that I’d never get over it if they got hurt because of me. They’re only trying to do their jobs.”
After a moment, he says angrily, “You know who I am. You know what I do. Correct?”
“Yes. I’ve been filled in on the particulars.”
“And you’re lying there with my hand around your neck asking me not to hurt your bodyguards.”
He says it like my sanity is in question.
“I know it’s maybe a little unorthodox.”
“No,” he says flatly.
He growls, “What the fuck is wrong with you?”
“There’s no need to get testy.”
“I’m just saying. You don’t have to get all mad about it.”
Furious again, he glares at me, grinding his jaw and probably calculating how much pressure it will take to snap the brittle bird bones in my neck.
Before he does, I say, “I also want to thank you for the rose you left me. That was really nice. I’ve never had a man bring me flowers before. I know it was only the one, and also you thought I was a captive prostitute at the time, but still. It was thoughtful. So thank you.”
He stares at me with an expression somewhere between confusion and amazement, with a healthy dose of disgust on the side.
“Now is probably a good time to remind you that I’m still the same person you left the rose for. So if you did kill me, you’d be killing her, too. Just a thought.”
“Are you on drugs?”
“Not at the moment, no. Why, do you have any?”
“There’s something wrong with you. Mentally. Right?”
That makes me laugh. “Oh, totally. I’ve got more than a few screws loose. At least that’s what my dad tells me. But he’s super uptight, zero imagination, so his opinion doesn’t really count. Not that he’s wrong, because he isn’t, but normies shouldn’t judge creatives. They just have no idea how we’re wired. Why are you looking at me like that?”
“I’ve never had a conversation with an insane person before.”
“Very funny.”
“It wasn’t a joke.”
We stare at each other in silence. His hostile, mine hopeful. He still hasn’t murdered me, so things are looking up.
“What.” He says it flatly. With dread.
“Thank you for not killing me.”
He says emphatically, “Don’t thank me yet.”
“You’re still deciding?”
“If only to get you to shut up, yes.”
“In that case…” I make a zipper motion across my lips.
He watches with outrage, astonishment, and absolute disbelief.
“Actually, before I shut up, I also want to say that it was really sweet that you tried to save me from being a sex worker. I mean, what a gentleman! A gentleman killer who gives strangers big wads of cash in restrooms. You’re quite the puzzle, Mr. Ghost. Or is it just Ghost? I’m never sure how the nickname thing works, except between me and my sister, but that doesn’t count because my whole family is a little weird. I’ll just call you Malek, if that’s all right. Or Mal for short, since we’re such buds now, what with you breaking into my various bedrooms for midnight visits and all. Okay, I’m shutting up now. Here I go.”
I press my lips together and gaze up at him, watching him struggle with dueling urges to cut off my air supply or break something over my head.
Maybe he’s right about me being insane, because rather than terrifying, I find his indecision understandable.
He’s not the first man I’ve driven to the brink of murder. He’s just the most capable of actually going through with it.
“Oh, one more thing—”
“I know a way to keep that mouth quiet,” he snaps.
Then he kisses me.

My Review...

Queens & Monsters

Holy Crow!! This series just gets better and better! Now each book can be totally read as a stand-alone, but do yourself a favor and read them all!

This is the story of Reily and Mal and it’s going to melt your Kindles!

Reily is little, but she is fierce! I absolutely loved this character! She had zero fks to give and she wasn’t shy in telling those around her.  She gets an invite to visit her sister, which she finds strange but goes, and then all heck breaks loose.

Malek is death, he is the ghost you don’t see coming, the hangman that greets you and he is very, very good at his job. He is out for vengeance and will stop at nothing to get it.  He is feared by all, except for a tiny wisp of a gal named Reily and he doesn’t know how to wrap his head and his heart around this firecracker.

The multiple POV’s in this story is epic and really brings the characters and storyline together. As someone who has read this whole series it was fantastic to see past characters make appearances, it really added more depth and background to this world.

There are surprises that are going to make you gasp and I cannot wait for the next book in this series!

See My Review Below!!!

Beard in Hiding, an all-new companion novel to the bestselling Winston Brothers and Solving for Pies series is LIVE! Penny Reid delivers a heartfelt romantic comedy about two lost souls who find love in the most unexpected way.  

Propositioning the Iron Wraiths’ money man seemed like a good idea at the time…

Diane Donner—recently divorced pillar of polite society—is craving danger. She’s tired of playing it safe and she knows just the sexy criminal motorcycle man to proposition for a good time. Problem is, she doesn’t actually know his name.

Jason “Repo” Doe never takes risks. So when the queen of local commerce walks into his club, looking to get risky and frisky, Jason knows the smartest thing to do is save himself a headache while saving the new divorcee from her worst impulses.

But then one thing leads to another, and the memory of just-one-night doesn’t feel like enough.

Theirs is a story with no future, because how can a dangerous criminal win (and keep) a queen?

‘Beard In Hiding’ is book #4.5 in the Winston Brothers series, is a full length contemporary romantic comedy about two lost souls in their 40s, and is a companion novel to the Winston Brothers and Solving for Pie series.

If you want to get the full immersive Green Valley world experience, I recommend reading ‘Truth or Beard,’ ‘Beard Science,’ ‘Engagement and Espionage,’ and ‘Marriage and Murder’ beforehand. ‘Beard In Hiding’ contains spoilers for these four books (in specific).

My Review...

What a quick tasty treat from the talented mind of Penny Reid.

As an avid fan and reader of all her stories, I always wondered about Repo and Diane. Well, Ms. Reid has given me and her readers the answer and more with this newest story.

Repo and Diane are a true opposites attract story. But when you read them together, you can see how seamlessly they fit together. Diane smoothes Repo’s rough edges. Repo lets Diane be the person she wants to be and doesn’t try to fit her into any mold, like her previous relationships had. 

This was a delightful read, an expansion of Ms. Reid’s Green Valley world and I for one was more than happy to read and visualize Diane and Repo’s story in all its glory!

He doesn’t remember, but I could never forget…

A small-town girl like me was way too practical to expect a fairy tale, but that’s exactly what

happened when Lionel Kral walked through my honey stand.

He swept me off my feet with just a smile. I had no idea who he was, but I knew we were

from two very different worlds.

I tried to resist him, I really did, but the damn man was persistent. He promised to love me

forever… I believed every single word.

Then one day he just vanished and in my search for the man who stole my heart, I

discovered that my happily ever after was an evil fabrication.

The perfect future I envisioned for us collapsed in front of me like a house of cards.

The man I barely knew was more a stranger than I ever imagined.

Lionel asked for answers I didn’t have, and he couldn’t give me the only thing I craved from

him. Trust.

A gravity-like force drew us together, but deception tore us apart.

I refused to fall for another lie.

Could he offer me the love I’d always wanted?

If you love intense romances sprinkled with great banter and lots of steam, then you will love this page-turner story.

MOXIE by Michelle Cornish

Featuring Gretchen and Ben (Gretchen’s grandparents)

Genre/Trope: Historical Romance




Add to Goodreads:


Salvation Society Author Page:



A WWII love at first sight romance with dual timelines, codebreaking war heroines, and prisoners of war.

People always asked Faye why Will called her Moxie.

It started with a dare at a dance in 1942 that ended in a kiss. Will loved that story.

But there’s more to the story than that. Much more . . .

Gretchen knows this story well. Her grandfather told it over and over while he was alive. But when Gretchen goes home to Jersey to be by her grandmother’s side one last time, Grandma Faye tells a different version of the story.

She knew the moment she saw him, they were meant to be together. Her girlfriends may have dared her to kiss him, but she would have anyway.

Then the war got in the way. Faye thought she’d never see Will again.

Until that night he took her breath away.

Will may have given Faye the name, but he’s the one with all the moxie.

My Review...

Wow! This story is going to grab you from the get-go!  The mystery and intrigue will keep you riveted until the very end.

This is the story of Stella and her husband. She meets him and he seems to change. She works hard to try to make this marriage work. 

She may look weak but she has a strong inner strength that carries her through the web of lies and deceit. 

Stella’s husband is a man of many faces, but which one is his true one. 

This story kept me guessing until the very end and holy heck what an ending it was!

Spun in the world of Corinne Micheals’ Salvation Society, it flows seamlessly with the rest of the world that has been created.

If you are looking for a fast-paced romantic suspense, get your hands on this newest story by the talented Ms. Susana Mohel.

A NOT SO MEET CUTE by Meghan Quinn

A NOT SO MEET CUTE by Meghan Quinn

Release Date: November 2nd


A Not So Meet Cute from USA Today bestselling author Meghan Quinn is NOW LIVE!!!

How did you two meet?

The quintessential question asked to every couple. And the answer is usually some bubbly, lovey dovey tale of being struck in the bum by Cupid’s arrow.

My meet cute (well not so meet cute) is slightly different. I was trolling a wealthy neighborhood in Beverly Hills, searching for someone to take me as their bride, you know, to make my arch nemesis jealous who consequently just fired me.

He was stomping around the block like some sort of gorgeous ogre, mumbling about a business deal gone wrong and attempting to finagle his way out of it.

And that’s when we bumped into each other.

There were no sparks.

Not even a hint of blossoming love.

But next thing I knew, I was scarfing down free chips and guac, listening to this man lay out all of his problems which led to his big ask . . . he wanted me to be his Vivian Ward, you know, from Pretty Woman–minus the frisky behavior.

We’re talking about living in a mansion, intimate double dates, and pretending we were head over heels in love . . . and engaged. Can you imagine?

The absolute audacity.

But people do crazy things when they’re desperate. And I reeked of desperation. So, I struck up a deal.

My one big mistake, though . . . big . . . HUGE? I accidentally fell for the incomparable Huxley Cane.

About Meghan:

USA Today Bestselling Author, wife, adoptive mother, and peanut butter lover. Author of romantic comedies and contemporary romance, Meghan Quinn brings readers the perfect combination of heart, humor, and heat in every book.








My Review...

Gahhh! Meghan Quinn can write not wrong! She again shows her writing talents with this new story of Huxley and Lottie!

I love the nod to one of my all-time favorite movies Pretty Woman in this story. It’s fantastical and whimsical and all the good things you love in a romance!

Lottie is at her rock bottom and will do just about anything to save face with her family. She is embarrassed and hurt by her circumstances and a not so meet-cute with Huxley changes her world.

Huxley is all business and no joy. He will do and say anything to close the deal. Even it could bite him in the behind. When his mouth runs away from him, his desperation makes him rely on Lottie. 

Their relationship is nothing but rocky but boy did the physical really ramp up the heat. The walls that they had both built around their hearts and souls seem insurmountable. I love how Lottie was able to reach inside and smooth Huxley’s rough edges and make him a more relatable person.

The humor in this book is absolutely divine! I was laughing out loud at the situations that this couple were put in and how they survived it!

Ms. Quinn is the queen of humor, heart and heat in her books and this is no exception. I fell in love hard with Lottie and Huxley and what a perfect ending to their story!

Title: Shopping for a Turkey
Series: Shopping for a Billionaire #18
Author: Julia Kent
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: November 2, 2021


I don’t understand Americans.

Or, as we say in Scotland, I dinna understand ye eedjits.
And I definitely dinna understand the crazy mother-in-law of my cousin Declan. Who in their right mind names a wee dog Chuffy?
I’m stuck in New York after ma agent makes a bloody mess of an otherwise good endorsement contract for a sports towel company, and this crazy American holiday–Thanksgiving–is in two days.
The invitation to spend it in Mendon, Massachusetts, with the Jacoby family is about as appealing as rotten haggis. As far as I can tell, Thanksgiving is about stuffing yerself silly, watching pathetic American “football,” while fighting with relatives ye only see once a year.
If I wanted that last one, I’d head back to Scotland, where we dinna need a holiday to be salty to each other.
Ma firm answer is nae.
Until I remember Amy is part of the family.
Suddenly, I’m available.
Eager, even. Perhaps she’ll pull ma wishbone. I hear that’s part of the Turkey Day festivities, aye?
What I canna admit, though, is how she pulls ma heartstrings, too.
Which shouldna feel better than the wishbone, but it does.
And here comes Amy’s mother with another holiday tradition, this one a bit early.
A sprig o’ mistletoe, dangling right above Amy’s bonnie head.
Shopping for a Turkey features Scottish football player Hamish McCormick and Amy Jacoby as they navigate unusual cultural norms, new traditions, and the undeniable attraction between these two characters, who have appeared as supporting players in Julia Kent’s New York Times-bestselling Shopping series.
It’s their turn to have their own all-new spinoff series. And to pull the wishbone. 😉





My attention wanders to the back yard. I watch Hamish doing sprint after sprint, over and over, each one as enthusiastically brutal as the last. His legs are a work of art. I’ll give him that.
Soccer player legs are a thing. Tree trunks in muscled form, they’re huge and powerful, developed by years of daily footwork and bold runs. He’s a cocky jerk, but a premier player like Hamish doesn’t get to his level without a crushing amount of hard body work.
He just keeps going, sprint after sprint, ignoring the dripping sweat, until he stops to drink, then…
Starts again.
My boots are by the front door, so I pass Dad and Declan, who are laughing together about James being a sophisticated older man. Massachusetts winters mean the heavy boots come out in late October. I’m fine without a coat today, my sweats warm enough, but no way will I head out there bootless.
The yard gets plenty of sun, so the ground he’s running on is tan, dead grass, but there’s a perimeter of snow at the base of the fence, where it’s always in the shade. It’s cold enough for the top layer of dirt to be frozen, but the terrain is uneven.
Nothing like a soccer field.
“It’s not flat like the fields you’re used to playing on,” I call out from a small spot of clear concrete on the patio.
“Excuse me? Did you just call me a bitch?”
That makes him stop, brow down, sweat dripping from copper-colored ringlets, true horror in his eyes. “What? Nae! I said pitch. With a P.”
“What’s a pitch?”
“A field. A soccer field.” He says soccer the way I say, well…
His name.
Dripping with sarcasm.
“Are you capable of having a single conversation with me that doesn’t involve insults or sex?”
“I was about to ask ye the same, Amy.”



Releasing January 11


New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Julia Kent writes romantic comedy with an edge. Since 2013, she has sold more than 1.5 million books, with 4 New York Times bestsellers and more than 16 appearances on the USA Today bestseller list. Her books have been translated into French and German, with more titles releasing soon. From billionaires to BBWs to new adult rock stars, Julia finds a sensual, goofy joy in every contemporary romance she writes. Unlike Shannon from Shopping for a Billionaire, she did not meet her husband after dropping her phone in a men’s room toilet (and he isn’t a billionaire). She lives in New England with her husband and three children in a household where the toilet seat is never, ever, down.


My Review...

Another stellar novella set in Ms. Kent’s “Shopping For” series!

This funny, fast, and slow burn of a novella is just an absolute tease for those readers (like me) that are waiting for Hamish and Amy’s story!

Hijinks again ensue at the Jacoby house for Thanksgiving. 

Poor Hamish struggles with his knowledge of the American holiday and struggles to control his flirtations with the prickly Amy Jacoby. 

Amy is overinformed and not from legit sources of Hamish and his playboy lifestyle. Her brain and heart want to hate him, but her body is saying go baby go!

It was wonderful to see all the key players in the series come together and I love the little hints of future storylines that hopefully will be coming!

I wanted this story to go on and on and cannot wait for Hamish and Amy to get their own story!

SWOON: A Brother’s Best Friend Standalone Romance

by Lauren Rowe

Release Date: November 1st






Add to Goodreads:


Growing up, I knew my older brother’s best friend thought of me as “Logan’s kid sister.” For me, though, our next-door neighbor, Colin, felt like anything but a sibling. Whenever I spied on him through my bedroom window, as he banged away, shirtless, on his drum kit, I felt sensations inside me I’d never felt for my actual brother. But when we moved away and Colin’s band took off like a rocket, I knew my tweener fantasies would never become a reality.⁣

Fast-forward nine years to my brother’s wedding, when I saw Colin again and we shared a secret, drunken kiss that rocked my world. The next morning, Colin blamed the alcohol. Said we should pretend the kiss, and my unfortunate text afterward, never happened. ⁣

Now that I’m heading to LA to work for Colin and crash at his place, though, all bets are off. I’m determined to make Colin swoon for me, the same way I’ve always done for him. Because no matter what he insisted, Colin’s body during our kiss, and the shocking thing he whispered into my ear right afterward, made it clear he doesn’t really think of me as his little sister, any more than I do.

My Review...

The title to this story is an absolute spot-on description of this newest story from Lauren Rowe!

This is the swoony story of Colin and Amy.

If you have read any of Ms. Rowe’s books, you will know that Colin is the drummer for 22 Goats. This is his story!

Amy has known Colin her whole life, she has been a “creeper” of Colin since before she knew what swooning was all about. When she moves away and time and distance separate them, she doesn’t lose that feeling. I love her quirkiness, her demand for honesty and to be real and her inner dialogue! It’s epic.

Colin gets gobsmacked when he sees Amy again after years apart. He fights like hell to keep Amy at arm’s length. Miscommunication and misjudgments steer his way of thinking in his feelings towards her and it was brilliant to see when he finally sees the forest through the trees!

Every time I pick up a new novel by Ms. Rowe, I am floored by her writing talent and to add the musical element to this read is extraordinary! I can’t wait to relisten to all the newest tracks from River Records! Well done!

A broken marriage pact gives way to a devastating love that won’t let go in this heart wrenching contemporary romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Winter Renshaw. 
Bogie had Bacall. Carrie had Big. I had Wyatt.
Growing up, he was the handsome cowboy next door, an unlikely confidant, my best friend, my first kiss, and my favorite person.
We were just a couple of small town kids with ambitions bigger than the stars in our eyes. The summer after graduation, we made a pact: I’d go to college in New York and he’d stay and take over his daddy’s ranch. If by twenty-eight we were both still single, we’d get married …
But as we stood in our high school gymnasium the night of our ten-year reunion, Wyatt told me he loved me too much to marry me.
He’d never broken a promise to me in his life, but in a single heartbeat he broke the only one that ever mattered. 
He said it would all make sense someday, that there would come a time I might even be able to forgive him. 
But then I stumbled upon the truth.
And there was no forgiving a secret this shattering—one that made me question if I ever knew him at all; one that only made me want him that much more. 
Bogie had Bacall. Carrie had Big. I had Wyatt.


Wall Street Journal and #1 Amazon bestselling author Winter Renshaw is a bona fide daydream believer. She lives somewhere in the middle of the USA and can rarely be seen without her trusty Mead notebook and ultra portable laptop. When she’s not writing, she’s living the American dream with her husband, three kids, and the laziest puggle this side of the Mississippi.

My Review...

Another phenomenal story from the talented mind of Winter Renshaw!

Whiskey Moon is Wyatt and Blaire’s story. This is a story of young love, promises made, and the true meaning of soulmates. Following your dreams and the true meaning of them.

Childhood sweethearts, big dreams and a pact is how this story begins.

Blaire is charismatic, dramatic, ready to conquer the world, she is ready to tackle the acting world and New York City by the horns, the only thing she fears is leaving Wyatt behind. 

Wyatt is a true rancher, and a still waters run deep kind of fella. He knows not to hold Blaire back from her dreams and comes up with a pact to ease her fears about leaving.

Time passes and separates the two young lovers. A decade in fact. Secrets and lies divide the two of them. 

The chemistry between Wyatt and Blaire is what dreams are made of. I love how Blaire stood up for herself when needed and pushed for the truth.  I admired how Wyatt loved Blaire so much that he let her live her dream, even if it’s so far away. 

I am always enamored by Ms. Renshaw’s writing, each book she releases makes me even more of a fan. This fast-paced gem is going to hit you right in the feels!

The Last Man Standing Series

Who doesn’t love a big, burly, growly man? I know I do! 

This story of Griff and Kinsey was everything I love in a romantic comedy.

Griff checked all my boxes when it comes to my favorite type of hero! He is the definition of “Still Waters Run Deep”. Years of cruelty from his dad has made this beautiful and brilliant man the way he is. But boy when he finds the woman of his dreams in Kinsey, he wants to stop with the grunts and growls and really speak his truth.

Kinsey is a “Don’t Judge a Book by its Cover”. She may look like an Elle Woods, but she is RBG and Marie Curie on the inside where it counts.

The chemistry between Griff and Kinsey was like a house on fire! I melted when both Griff and Kinsey “showed” their love instead of saying it and wanted to shake them both for taking so long to realize it.

The angst was the perfect blend to not make this story not too sweet, and oh my me, the smexy times were hotter than a habanero pepper sprout!

If you are looking for a new, funny, and smokin hot story and series to read, look no further than this story!

She fought to escape her dysfunctional family, to end a soul-killing marriage, and to build a new life in a small Tennessee town.  When the fate of the community hospital she works for is threatened, she’s primed and ready for battle.

Walker Leffersbee is a lover. At least that’s the reputation he’s built in his hometown. Scion of a prosperous Tennessee banking family, he’s a known ladies’ man and a confirmed bachelor. His hands are full as he juggles competing demands from his family’s bank and his growing property renovation business. The last thing he needs is to give in to his long-standing craving for his sister’s headstrong and hot-tempered best friend.

My Review...

This second book of the Leffersbee family is a sensenstional read!

This book, set in the Green Valley world gives a beautiful fresh view of the world that Penny Reid has created.

This is the story of the eldest Leffersbee, Walker and his sister’s best friend Leigh. 

First, wow! Leigh is a phenomenal, strong character. For all the hurt and drama of her past and present, she rises above as best she can to be strong and capable, all on her own. It’s was devastating to see her go home and face the catastrophe that awaited her. 

Walker is a born savior. He is determined to smooth the rough waters in his world. However, when his own world gets rocked, he deals with it in a bit of a selfish way. 

The chemistry between Leigh and Walker is amazing. I love how they played off each other’s strengths. They were there when they needed each other and they each smoothed the rough edges of the other. 

The angst was perfectly blended with a strength of love that they had for each other. This story is going to pull at your heartstrings in a glorious way!

Way to go Ms. Ellis, I can’t wait to read what comes next from this family!
