Bibliophile Chloe

Book Blogger, Mom, Wife….Jack of all trades, master of none!

It was the perfect plan.
I needed a wife–temporarily–in order to inherit the family business.
And she needed a favor–the kind that takes nine months to deliver.

Call Me Crazy, an all-new steamy and heartfelt small-town romance from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow is available now!

We had it all worked out, from the no-touching policy on our wedding night (her rule) to the no-falling-in-love decree (mine). She’d marry me, I’d give her the means to have the baby she’d always wanted, and one year later we’d amicably part ways with no hassle, no demands, and certainly no regrets.

After all, Bianca DeRossi and I are experts at infuriating one another–we’ve been doing it since we were kids. Trouble is, she grew up gorgeous and feisty, and she still knows exactly how to get under my skin.

And that wedding night? Well, it doesn’t exactly go down hands-free.

Then she moves in with me, and I really start to lose my mind. From her sexy little pout to her wicked sense of humor to those meatball sandwiches she makes just because she knows they’re my favorite . . . I find myself wanting to break every rule we put in place.

Our story was never supposed to end with happily ever after.
But call me crazy, I just might be in love with my wife.

Excerpt

Aaliyah

 His playful look shifted a bit as he looked my way and nibbled on his bottom lip. “So there was a recent breakup.” 

“He broke up with me about five weeks ago.”

“What an ass.” 

“Yeah, but I love him. I wish I could say past tense, but here we are. My roommate Sofia said the best way to get over a man is to get under another one, but I can’t even consider that right now. The last thing I want to do is sleep with someone else.” 

“Plus, sex wouldn’t fix a broken heart and—holy shit!” He clapped his hands together and hopped up from the ground to a standing position. The grin on his face was so big, but I didn’t understand what caused his sudden shift. “I got it, Red! I know what we can do to help you.” 

I arched an eyebrow and stood. “I’m confused.”

“I know, I know, and you’re going to think I’m crazy—which, maybe I am—but here’s the deal: You can’t bang your way out of a heartbreak. That’s not how love works. Love isn’t a physical connection; it’s an emotional one. Plus, after breakups, people replay the good memories over the bad in their minds and start thinking they somehow failed, when, in reality, the bad probably always outweighed the good. You simply held the good tight in your grip because it was few and far between in the end. Otherwise, the good would’ve been enough to keep you together.”

I hated that he was speaking facts. Over the past weeks, all I’d done was replay all the good times Mario and I had together. My mind was stuck on a loop of moments that meant the world to me in my past relationship. 

There were only a handful of good memories, yet I simply played them on repeat, making them feel bigger than they already were. Mario was a master at doing the bare minimum, and I celebrated that fact as if he was a god. It wasn’t his fault he gave me mediocre love. It was my fault for accepting it. 

“So what’s your point?” I asked. 

“Do you believe in destiny?” 

I chuckled. “Don’t tell me you do.” 

“I think everything happens for a reason, even if the reasoning isn’t clear as day right away. Maybe that’s why we met tonight, Red, because we were meant to. Maybe I had to get socked in the eye and whipped with a lasso because we were supposed to cross paths so I could help you get over your ex.”

“How?”

“The best way to get over a love is to find a stronger connection with another person. So, I present to you, your Halloween love story.” He took a bow as if he was making any sense at all.

I stood still, confused as ever. “Am I missing something?”

“Clearly, because you’re looking at me as if I’m having a mental breakdown—which, I mean, is probably accurate.” He cleared his throat and stood taller as he smoothed his hands over his chest. “I’m asking you to fall in love with me.” 

I snickered. “I’m sorry, what?”

“Give me the chance to make you fall in love with me before the sun comes up in the next”—he glanced down at his phone—“five hours or so. It’s just past midnight. Give me those hours to make you fall in love with me. Then we’ll end the love story on a good note. No tragic heartbreak, no hard moments or relationship struggles. No cheating or scandals. Just two people who fell in love, then life or, in our case, morning made them say their goodbyes.” 

“You really think two people can fall in love within five hours?”

“I don’t know.” He shrugged and held his hand out toward me. “Want to try?”

I should’ve said no. I should’ve laughed off his crazy idea and ended the night right there on the rooftop, but I didn’t want to go home. I didn’t want to be alone. But most of all, I wanted more time with Captain, even if only a few more hours. Even if there wasn’t a real chance of me falling in love with him but just a chance of more time to feel happy. 

Happy. 

I felt happy. 

I hadn’t even known how much I’d missed happiness until it found me that night. 

So, I did what any insane girl would’ve done. I took his hand and agreed to the idea of falling in love within the next five hours. 

He clasped my fingers with his and pulled me in close to him. It was the closest we’d stood since meeting, and the way he looked down into my eyes caused the butterflies to intensify. He had to be well over six-foot-two as he hovered over my five-foot-eight frame—and that was with heels. The way he looked at me made me feel important, as if he was going to give this crazy plan of his all that he had. 

“Knock, knock,” he said, with the goofiest grin known to mankind. 

“Who’s there?”

“Will you fall in love with?”

“Will you fall in love with who?”

“Me.”

What happens when you fly recklessly into fire:
You get burned.

Ruthless Creatures, an all-new explosive must-read dark romance from J.T. Geissinger is available now!

An explosive new novel of love, lies, and obsession from bestselling author J.T. Geissinger

Five years ago, my fiancé disappeared. Left me with a wedding dress I’d never wear. Left me
with the kind of scars that can’t be healed. The man I built my future on vanished like a ghost.
All that remained were my broken heart and unanswered questions.

Until a mysterious stranger arrives in town.

Tall, dark, and dangerous, Kage is as full of secrets as he is sex appeal. Though I know he’s
hiding something, I’m drawn to him like a moth to flame.

The intensity of our connection is addictive, unlike anything I’ve ever felt before. Heat crackles
between us with every look, desire flares into passion, and I fall hard, helpless to resist.

But when I discover how he’s tied to the darkness in my past, I learn what happens when you fly
recklessly into fire:

You get burned.

Excerpt

I recall my first impression of him when I saw him at the bar last night, how I told Sloane he looked like he walked off the set of Sons of Anarchy, and understand on a cellular level that the man sitting across from me is someone for whom the normal rules of society don’t apply. 

I also understand that he’s dangerous.

 And that he wants me but doesn’t want to. 

And that I want him, too, but shouldn’t. 

Because people who stick a hand too close to a lion’s mouth will come away with a bloody stump where that hand used to be. 

The waiter arrives. Kage sends him away with a royally dismissive flick of his fingers, never taking his gaze off me. 

When he’s gone, Kage says, “So your fiancé disappeared. And for the next five years, on every anniversary of what would’ve been your wedding day, you get drunk.”

“It sounds worse when you say it out loud. Do I need to be afraid of you?”

We stare at each other across the table. The silence is electric. If he’s surprised by my question, it doesn’t show. 

He says softly, “What if I said yes?”

“Then I’d take you at your word and drive straight to the nearest police station. Are you saying yes?”

He hesitates. “Most people who know me are.”

My heart pounds so hard, I’m surprised he can’t hear it. “I want a yes or a no.”

“Would you believe me if I said no?”

I reply instantly, without thinking. “Yes. You’re not the kind of man who hides behind lies.”

He considers me in blistering, unblinking silence, slowly turning the cigar round and round between his thumb and forefinger. Finally, he says gruffly, “You’re so fucking beautiful.”

The breath I’ve been holding comes out in a rush. “That’s not an answer.”

“I’m getting there.”

“Get there faster.”

On his lips appears that faint approximation of a smile. “I’ve already told you I’m not a knight in shining armor—”

“There’s miles between that and what I asked.”

He growls, “Interrupt me again and I’ll take you over my knee right here and spank that perfect ass of yours until you’re screaming.”

Coming from anyone else, a statement like that—spoken in such a hard, dominating tone—would make me furious. 

Coming from him, it almost makes me moan out loud with desire. 

I bite my tongue and glare at him, unsure which one of us I dislike more at the moment. 

He crushes his cigar in the ashtray, drags a hand through his dark hair, and moistens his lips. Then he shakes his head, laughing ruefully. 

“All right. You want an answer? Here it is.”

He stares into my eyes, laughter fading, until he’s all hard jaw and thinned lips and smoldering hotness. “No. You don’t have to be afraid of me. Even if I wanted to hurt you, I wouldn’t.”

I lift my brows. “Somehow, that’s not exactly reassuring.”

“Take it or leave it. It’s the truth.”

The waiter returns, grinning. Without looking away from me, Kage growls at him, “Come over again when you haven’t been called and I’ll put a bullet in your head.”

I’ve never seen a man spin around and run away so quickly. 

Feeling dangerously reckless, I say, “Since you’re in a truth telling mood, why did you pay for your house in cash?”

“To launder the money. Don’t repeat that to anyone. Next question.”

My mouth opens. For several moments, nothing comes out. When I manage to compose myself, I say, “Why would you trust me with something like that?”

“Because I want you to trust me.”

“Why?”

“Because I want you. And I suspect getting to have you requires a certain level of trust. I can tell you’re not the type who sleeps around. Next question.”

God, my heart is beating so, so fast. So fast I can barely breathe. Also, I think I might have whiplash. 

I say, “Are you always this…”

“Direct? Yes.”

“I was going to say contradictory. Yesterday it seemed like you hated me. I’m still not sure you don’t.”

His voice drops. “Yesterday you weren’t under my protection. Now you are.”

His eyes are hypnotic. His voice is hypnotic. This man is putting me under a spell. “I’m pretty sure I have no idea what you’re talking about.”

“It doesn’t matter. What matters is that you believe you’re safe with me.”

My laugh is faint. “Safe with you? God, no. I think I’m in more danger around you than I have been with any other man before in my life.”

My Review…

Holy crow!! This is one hella hot story! And I am hoping for that this is the beginning of another epic series!

This is the story of Kage and Natalie. Their combustible heat and fiery passion is just a tempting tidbit in this story of loss, intrigue, obsession and the ugly truth versus the beautiful lies.

This story had me hooked from the get go! From the alphaness of Kage to the awakening of Nat. 

I fell hard for the possessiveness of Kage, his utter lack of apology for anything he does and what he is willing to do for Nat is nothing short of ruthless! He is hell bent on making Natalie his and yet wants to keep her safe from his world. 

Natalie is struggling with loss, with the unknown and when Kage barges into her world, she knows she should stay far away, but the heart wants what the heart wants.  And her heart can deny Kage. Even when half truths and lies threaten to destroy them, their love and loyalty to each other is epic.

As endings go, it was fantastic and sets up the reader for even more from this dark, dangerous world that Ms. Geissinger has created! I cannot wait to read more!

Stay Tuned for the blog tour with my review!

Title: Torque: A Bad Boy Next Door Romance
Series: Burns Brothers #4
Author: Gillian Archer
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 18, 2021
 
 

 

BLURB
 

 

She’s his little sister’s best friend—totally off limits. But then again, this tattooed bad boy has never followed the rules.

 

 

 

Maddie:

 

I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t in love with Nathan Burns. We met when I was six and twenty years later, I love him still. But he’ll never see me as anything other than his little sister’s best friend—a pest—if he even thinks of me that much. I’ve got to face facts. He’s not into me. He’ll never be into me.
 
It’s beyond time to move on.
 

 

Nathan:

 

I swear I blinked and my little sister’s best friend—a woman who’s about as off-limits as it can get—grew up. And she’s hot as hell. When did that happen? It doesn’t help that she’s everywhere now—at our weekly family dinner nights, sleeping on my brother’s couch next door, lying out in our complex’s swimming pool in a barely-there bikini. And who are these losers hanging around her lately? None of them are worthy of the woman she’s become. Then again, neither am I.
 
And when I stumble across her profile on a hook up app, all bets are off.
 
*Can be read as a standalone

EXCERPT

 

To say I wasn’t in a great mood would be an understatement. I went to bed pissed off at my brothers, the production company, and most of the world—and woke up the same way. If not worse.

 

Although the honey sunning at the side of the pool was a pleasant distraction.

 

Hello, hottie.

 

I couldn’t see her face—she was on her stomach with her head turned away from the building, but her body was banging—curvy and plump in that way that got me hard with just one look. Her dark chocolate hair was up in one of those messy buns girls liked to do to keep their hair out of their face. It was easy to imagine it coming down her back in a luscious curtain. And me holding it in a fist as I knelt behind her…
Fuck.
I hadn’t met whoever had moved into the end unit, but it was past time that I introduce myself.
Ducking inside, I stripped down, pulled on board shorts and my favorite pair of flip flops. After grabbing a towel, some book Sabrina had been nagging me to read, and a pair of sunglasses, I shut and locked my door behind me and made for the pool.
I didn’t have any kind of a plan. Didn’t know what I was going to say. Or do. I figured I’d just wing it.
Reaching the condo’s pool, I tossed my stuff on a lounger. Ms. Hottie was in the same place, only now her head was turned the other way, so I still couldn’t see her face. From all appearances, and despite the book next to her, she was sleeping.
I didn’t want to look like the creeper I was clearly being, so I did the only thing I could think of.
I jumped in.
Diving into the deep end, I started swimming laps. My arms and legs moving in a comfortable rhythm. Soothing. After the second lap, I forgot about the beautiful girl I wanted to talk to. After about the fifth lap, I forgot my anger with my brothers. After the tenth, I forgot about my rage against our producer, James. After my twentieth lap, my stomach started growling.
Damn, I was hungry.
Resting my arms against the edge, I panted a little and took a break. My stomach growled again. Or maybe I was done. I needed breakfast.
“I didn’t know you kept up with your swimming,” Maddie’s voice sounded from my left.
I turned my head and because of the quick glimpse of her I got, I lost my grip. I plunged back into the pool with a splash, water invading my lungs.
Ms. Hottie was Maddie.

 

Maddie.

 

As in my little sister’s best friend, Maddie.
The revelation looped in my brain as I fought back to the surface. Breaking through, I coughed as I tried to breathe again. I pulled myself up onto deck, splayed out on my belly. But I didn’t stay there long.
Hands pulled against torso, urging me to my side. I blinked, and Maddie’s face came into focus as she hovered worriedly above me.
“Oh my god. Are you okay? Did you hit your head or something?”
I tried to scoff, but it came out a rough cough and forced more liquid outta me.
“Let’s get you into the recovery position. Hand under your head and this leg bent.”
My eyes crossed as Maddie leaned over me, her plump breasts straining against her itty-bitty bikini and only centimeters from my mouth.
When the hell did little Maddie Roberts get a body like that?
Christ, how had I missed all of this?
“Nathan? Nathan, are you okay? Oh god. I’m just gonna run in and grab Hope. She’s taken some first aid classes for the Boys and Girls Club. She’ll know what to do.”
The panic in her voice snapped me out of my haze. “Maddie, I’m fine.”
My wheezing breaths belied my words, but I’d stopped her from racing away.
Although, given the way her tits bounced with only a few steps, I was kinda sad when she stopped moving.
Fuck, what was wrong with me? This was my little sister’s best friend. Maddie firmly belonged in the friend zone. No matter how little her bikini was and how deliciously she filled it out.
Friend. Zone.
Right, my dick mocked as it pressed against my board shorts. I’d like to get friendly with her.
Fuck my life.

My Review…

Burns Brothers…

I am so enjoying this series! The brothers’ Burns are so dynamic and each has their own strengths and weaknesses. 

This is the story of Nathan and Maddie.

Nathan is the pushy, no holds barred Burns brother. He wants things his way and will do whatever it takes to make it happen, even to his own detriment. He has known Maddie since childhood and has always seen her as a little sister, until one day he doesn’t and boy do the sparks fly!

Maddie has had a not-so-secret crush on Nathan since forever.  When she finally realizes that Nathan will never see her any other way, she decides to move on. (Hint, she doesn’t get far….) 

The chemistry between Maddie and Nathan is hotter than hot! And it was fantastic to see Maddie break out of her shell and embrace her inner goddess! I love how she stood up for herself.  I also enjoyed how the Love Languages played a huge part of this story! 

This can be read as a stand alone and does wonderfully by itself. Do yourself a favor and read this whole series!  I am so hoping for Dylan’s story next!

My Review…

The Compass Series…

“I love the flashes of love…”

As Connor’s mom would say… oh my lanta! This story is another jewel in the writing crown of Ms. Cherry.  This series is absolutely gripping.

This story of Aaliyah and Conor is going to give you all the feels.  From corny humor to heartbreaking sorrow and the swoons…Oh my me, Connor has got to be one of the swooniest characters I have had the pleasure to read.

A true southern gentleman, Connor is the modern day gent. When fate brings him and Aaliyah together for one evening it’s beautiful, romantic and charming as all get out. He is a classic workaholic and has some deep lingering issues about time, death and living.

Overcoming a difficult and lonely childhood, Aaliyah is working hard to make her dreams come true, even when she trusts too much and gives too much of herself. I admired her bravery and her determination to keep healthy boundaries in place.

I loved the friendship between Red and Cap, I loved how Cap helped Red learn to love herself first before she can love somebody else. And I love how Red fought to find her dream of love, family and somebody to just stay for her.

I caught myself laughing, crying and falling in love with all the characters in this book. This is definitely in the running for one of my “Best Reads of 2021!”

Dewey Belong Together, an all-new enemies to lovers small-town romance from Ann Whynot, is LIVE EARLY on AppleBooks, Nook, Kobo, and GooglePlay! 

Librarian Maxine Peters lives her life behind the scenes. By day, she’s a buttoned-up cataloguing whiz in the basement of the Green Valley Public Library. By night, she’s secretly dominating in an online role playing game as the legendary Maximus_Damage. Her in-game persona has the skills to back up the hype. But every hero has an enemy; every saga, a villain. And by her own invitation, Maximus’ arch nemesis, Wrath, has just landed in Green Valley.

Jonathan Owen is not at all who Maxine expects when she meets Wrath face to face. Eager to leave the past in the game, Jonathan takes this golden opportunity to win Maxine’s heart. There’s just one wrench in that plan: he may have, on a few occasions, acted like a bit of a jerk online. And to his puzzlement, she has taken their fun rivalry to the level of epic dislike.

Jonathan quickly learns fighting his own demons will take more than one elite gamer. And Maxine, who is busy rebooting her life in Green Valley, might not be up to the task.

My Review…

Green Valley Public Library Book 003

Wow! What an awesome debut novel from Ann Whynot!

This is the story of Maxine and Jonathan, otherwise known as Maximus_Damage and Wrath accordingly.

This story will really entrench you in the world of online gaming. But Ms. Whynot does this with grace and it made me as a reader appreciate not being talked down to for not knowing the lingo. You can tell this is something Ms. Whynot has a vested interest in and it shows in her writing.

I loved the evolution of Jonathan and Maxine. The long lasting love/hate relationship. The upheaval of Jonathan’s feelings for Maximus and the turmoil it created. The way that Maxine was able to break out of the shell she created around herself. So well done.

I also admired the way that Ms. Whynot tackled the subject of mental disorders.  I can empathize with what both Maxine and Jonathan go through.

As always, I love being submerged into the world of Green Valley and the Penny Reid universe. Ms. Whynot’s story seamlessly blends into the world created by Ms Reid perfectly!

** BLURB**

Levi Walker never expected to be a single father at thirty-four. Then again, there were several things he hadn’t anticipated like a life-altering situation in the military or a certain girl, who was now a woman, standing before him again. Memories of her haunted his dreams and kept him alive on more than one occasion. From an accidental kiss when she was too young to an intentional one when she was old enough, Levi hasn’t been able to forget her.

Katie Carter has grown up confident and successful despite her early childhood. At twenty-seven, she has everything she could have asked for except two things – love and marriage. She’s always been a bit of a dreamer and there’s one man in particular who has filled her fantasies for years. When she’s reunited with him, some embarrassing moments resurface and the heart remembers innocent feelings that might lead to more as grown adults.

It’s a family celebration that brings Levi Walker (Read With Your Heart) and Katie Carter (Speak From The Heart) back to Elk Lake City, igniting old memories and sizzling new attractions between friends who grew up together.

The Heart Remembers is a standalone spin-off novella from the Heart Collection, joining aged children in a second chance reunion. 

** Previously published as The History in Us. Now, a completely new story for two beloved characters.

My Review…

I have always loved the characters that Ms. Dunbar has created. This story makes me love her characters even more.

I absolutely loved The Heart Collection.

So reading this story and seeing characters from her past come back to visit was amazing!

A family reunion brings everyone back home! Including Katie and Levi. They have a complicated past and a lifelong crush from Katie.

Levi has scars from his past, both physical and mental. I was able to completely empathize with him. My husband is a wounded vet and I was so impressed by Ms. Dunbar’s realism with Levi. He has known Katie since she was a little girl and leaves for the military with her waiting for her hero.  When he comes home years later he sees that Katie is a little girl no more, she has grown and become a woman that he can see a future with.

Katie has loved Levi since she was a little girl. Levi has always pushed her away because of her age, even with a few hiccups along the way. But Katie has always had a piece of her heart saved just for Levi. 

Their chemistry is breathtaking and I loved the push and pull between the two of them and the love for each other bled through the pages.

I have always said that Ms. Dunbar is the queen of over 40 romances and even though Levi and Katie are a bit younger, they still resonate beautifully with me.

Today I have the blog tour for AUDREY’S INN by Elle Aycart! Check it out and be sure to order your copy today!

Title: Audrey’s Inn

Author: Elle Aycart

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

About Audrey’s Inn:

Audrey Fleming never had much of a family or place to call home, so when she gets the chance to buy an inn that once belonged to her late namesake, she doesn’t think twice. Never mind her lack of funds, connections, and experience. Besides, she’s out of options and Alden seems like the ideal place to lie low for a good long while.

Connor Stonewell, beloved grandson of Greta, OG extraordinaire, was once one of Alden’s Golden Boys. Now he’s a hot mess. He’d never envisioned a future where he wasn’t in the military, so getting discharged after a mission gone horribly wrong has left him adrift in the civilian world.

He’s too dangerous to be around his fellow soldiers—never mind a certain sweet, sexy innkeeper he can’t seem to stay away from. He should stop playing with fire. Pack his shit and disappear for good. Too bad he can’t do it. Walking away from Audrey is something every fiber of his being refuses to do.

Their secrets will sooner or later catch up with them. Audrey and Connor both know it. But whether they’ll survive or crash and burn under the weight of revelation is anybody’s guess.

My Review…

The OGs Series

What a bittersweet ending to a fantastically funny and steamy series by Ms. Aycart.

This is the story of Connor and Audrey, or is it? You are going on a bit of a thrill ride with this story, just like riding sidecar with the OGs!

Connor has been battle-tested and scarred beyond measure. He has come back home to defend his grandma and to try to heal as best he can.  He is unhopeful in his recovery and has no clue on what he is going to do with himself. 

Audrey has come home to realize a dream that she had shared with her roommate. She has come home to re-open the B&B that grandma Audrey had started back in the day. She has put her heart and soul into the place. Audrey’s Inn has become her refuge and safe place. 

When Connor and Audrey meet, sparks fly and Connor is afraid of himself around her and tries hard to keep his distance. Audrey is the calm to his chaos, the shelter in the storm of his mind. 

This story grabbed me from the get-go and didn’t let go until the beautiful end. There are twists and turn, a bit of a thriller, and oh my me the smexiness between Connor and Audrey was so wickedly hot, I thought my e-reader would melt!

This is a series I can totally see myself re-reading again and again!! Well done!

Steal My Magnolia is more than a love story. It’s a beautifully crafted journey of life full of obstacles but a journey worth the travel with the right person.” –Author Andrea Johnston

Steal My Magnolia, an all-new heartwarming small-town romance from Karla Sorensen, is now available in Kindle Unlimited! 

Life lesson from Grady Buchanan: If you’re going to fall in love with the untouchable girl in town, don’t hire her as your only employee.

Even after he bungled the interview with Magnolia MacIntyre, he knew better than to hire her. The list of why it’s a bad idea is a long one.

Her father could ruin his fledgling business.

She is completely overqualified.

And he’s attracted to her.

What does Grady do? He offers her the job.

Magnolia knew better than to take it. Normally, she’d make the safe choice, and working for Grady is anything but.

He’s new in town–and entirely too charming.

Her dad will be furious.

She hates the outdoors and working for an outdoor adventure company is not exactly the right fit.

What does she do? She says yes on the spot.

Grady and Magnolia will have to prove to everyone in their life that they’re not crazy. And prove to each other that the list of why it’s a bad idea should be tossed out the window.

For these two opposites, sometimes doing the wrong thing is exactly right.

‘Steal My Magnolia’ is a full-length contemporary romance and can be read as a standalone. Book #3 in the Love At First Sight series, Green Valley Chronicles, Penny Reid Book Universe.

About Karla Sorensen

Karla Sorensen has been an avid reader her entire life, preferring stories with a happily-ever-after over just about any other kind. And considering she has an entire line item in her budget for books, she realized it might just be cheaper to write her own stories. It doesn’t take much to keep her happy…a book, a really big glass of wine, and at least thirty minutes of complete silence every day. She still keeps her toes in the world of health care marketing, where she made her living pre-babies. Now she stays home, writing and mommy-ing full time (this translates to almost every day being a ‘pajama day’ at the Sorensen household…don’t judge). She lives in West Michigan with her husband, two exceptionally adorable sons and big, shaggy rescue dog.

My Review…

The Buchanan curse strikes again!

I am so enamored by this world that Ms. Sorensen has created in the Green Valley world! Her stories flow so seamlessly into the world that Penny Reid has created and created her own corner of Green Valley that I love just as much!

This is the story of Grady and Magnolia. There is awkwardness aplenty and when the curse strike Grady, well he just doesn’t know what to do!

Magnolia is a southern belle, she was raised on etiquette classes. She was born and bred to be a lady. She knew her place that her family has plotted for her and for the longest time, she did what she was told. When a huge shakeup happens in her world, she realizes just how “go with the flow” she has been doing and she wants to be done. I love her character, her inner strength and her outer beauty. She is a beautiful soul.

Grady is full of big hopes and dreams, he has a million ideas and just doesn’t know how to sort everything out. His organization skills are not pretty and he needs help! When he unknowingly hires Magnolia to help his fledgling business, well the curse strikes him hard! He knows that there is a complicated history between his twin sister and Magnolia, but his heart wants her and he is overwhelming swoony in the way he goes about trying to work everything out.

I could so empathize with both Grady and Magnolia about the trickiness of their situation and their developing relationship. And reading Grady’s honesty and forthrightness was both swoony and scary. 

I absolutely loved this story and I cannot wait to see the next story in this series!
