PRHappyHourBookCover5x8_BW_300

The perfect man for her is the one she hates most. #gofigure

Dating is hard.

Dating in your thirties is even harder.

Dating in Chicago is harder still.

I haven’t given up on finding my happily-ever-after, but in the age of swiping right and Netflix and chill, I’m wondering if everything is as temporary as my marriage turned out to be.

Truth is, there is one guy I can’t get my mind off of.

Roarke Baldwin has salt and pepper hair I’ve dreamed of running my hands through and I’m pretty sure that if I checked he really does have a six pack of abs underneath his suit. And I’ve always wondered what that stubble on his face would feel like between my thighs.

The problem? He’s the one man I hate more than my ex-husband…

His divorce attorney.

Excerpt:

I press the numbers on my phone with shaky fingers, bringing the receiver up to my ear and release a deep breath.

He picks up after one ring. “I thought we were friends? Having your assistant call my assistant. Tsk. Tsk, Ms. Crowley.”

Aggravation fuses together every cell in my body until I become an impenetrable wall.

“First, we are not friends. Second, I would prefer to talk to you via our office phones.”

There’s a brief second of silence where he’s probably realizing I called him through my office line.

“Ahh… so now you have my number and I don’t have yours? That seems terribly unfair.”

“I didn’t realize you cared about fairness?” I lean back in my chair and cross my legs.

“You don’t know that much about me. It’s not like you know me intimately.” He lowers his voice on the last word and drags it out.

I roll my eyes, happy we’re not face-to-face so he can’t see the flush in my cheeks.

“You may have witnessed how I own the courtroom, but you know nothing about my private life. For instance, you don’t know if I like thrillers or comedies. Whether I prefer sorbet to ice cream or if I wear boxers or briefs.”

“I don’t need to know those things,” I say with frustration, shutting my eyes to rid the vision from my head of him in tight black boxer briefs—since that’s my preference.

“You want to know though.” A sexual innuendo pours out of his mouth and hits its mark between my thighs.

“There you go making assumptions about my wants.” I pick up my pen, shuffling through paperwork. Anything to distract me from this ache.

“I not only know what you want, I know what you need, Ms. Crowley.”

I smack my hand down on my desk. “Okay Rico Suave, let’s talk about this venue you have access to and keep the discussion of undergarments for another time.”

A beeping sound interrupts us.

“Hold all my calls please, Kristen.” Then nothing for a moment. “Sorry about that but you know how busy I am.”

“Yes, I’m sure destroying people’s lives takes a lot of time. So let’s stop the sexual innuendos and get down to business.”

“Let’s meet tonight. You frequent Torrio’s. I frequent Torrio’s. Let’s do something crazy and have a drink together.”

“I don’t need a drink at Torrio’s, Mr. Baldwin, I need a venue to house my gala. Now tell me your terms and I want the details of this venue you insist you can secure. I refuse to meet you until you supply me with that information.” I uncross my legs and tap my foot on the floor under me.

“So demanding. I like it.” I can hear him shuffling papers in the background. “I’ll have my assistant message your assistant with all the details of the venue. I’m sure it will be of your liking. Then we’ll meet tonight at Torrio’s. Seven sharp. Consider it our own personal happy hour.”

“I’m not committing to anything until I see the venue.”

“Then I’ll see you at seven.” The phone clicks and I stare at the receiver in my hand.

“Prick,” I murmur.

A knock sounds on my door.

Happy Release Day & Review – Angry Annie by Dawn L. Chiletz

See My Review Below!!!

Title: Angry Annie

Author: Dawn L. Chiletz

Genre: Romantic Comedy/Humorous

Release Date: July 12, 2018

 

Joslyn Walters has goals:

1. Infiltrate the life of the internet troll, Annie McClintonuck, who wrote a nasty review for her sister’s bakery before it even opened.

2. Write an article exposing Annie for a fraud, thereby catapulting Joslyn’s stalled career from fact-checker to journalist.

3. Flirt with, but don’t fall for, said troll’s hot, seemingly shy, incredibly edible next door neighbor, Rhode Bennett.

4. Try not to let one week change her life.

Not all trolls are cute and fuzzy but some lemons are gold in disguise.

 

Dear Reader:

STOP. Don’t waste your time going any further. This book sucks like a plunger in a toilet bowl. I don’t know what to say about this woman’s lack of talent. I’d like to call her an author, but just because you put a bunch of words on paper doesn’t make you a writer. Heck, my cousin’s five-year-old granddaughter wrote a three-sentence story about pizza that’s better than this. Dawn . . . what kind of ’70s hippie name is that, anyway? People name their kid Dawn when they’re too lazy to think of a real name. I’ve always preferred dusk to Dawn and she’s reminded me why. Go watch TV instead. Save your money. You’re welcome.

Annie McClintonuck


 

Dawn L. Chiletz resides in Illinois with her two boys and three dogs. Her love of reading began at a young age and continued into adulthood. Armed with a dream from the night before, she sat down at her laptop in the summer of 2014 and started the words to her first book, The Contest. She’s been writing ever since. When she’s not binge reading or writing you can most likely find her on social media avoiding laundry.

My Review…

This is a huge part of why I love book blogging.  Reading and sometimes meeting new to me authors!

Dawn L. Chiletz is a new to me author and what a fun introduction with Angry Annie.

First, Angry Annie is a great book title! But it’s about so much more than just Annie, it’s the people in her world!

This is a love story, both past and present. How love in all it’s different facets can change a person, good and bad.

When introduced to Joss, I was on the fence about her.  I admired her aggressive/assertiveness. But there was something that didn’t click right away with me.  But as I continued with the story, I fell in love with her!

Rhode was swoony, he was just what Joss needed! But I also loved the fact that the story didn’t just center on the relationship between Joss and Rhode.  This was more about the relationship between Joss and Annie and it was brilliant!

The humor and and the spitfire that is Annie was laugh out loud funny! She is a true inspirational character! All the characters in this book brought something relevant to the story, not just filler, which I appreciate!

From salad tongs to lemons and snapdragons (my favorite flower!), this story will make you laugh, it will make you think and it will make you look at the world a little differently.  That is a testament to a great story!

Happy Release Day & Review – Because Forever by B. Cranford

See My Review Below!!!

 

“If you’re looking for forever, why aren’t you looking at me?”

BecauseForever-Amazon

Title: Because Forever
Series: The Avenue #2
Author: B. Cranford
Release Date: July 13, 2018

Blurb

Everyone should have a chance at forever . . .

Twenty-Five Years. That’s how long Odette Peterson called Austin Andrews her best friend. Until he let his mouth ruin it—in more ways than one.

Five Minutes. That’s all it took for their friendship to fall apart, leaving her heart a little broken and her life a little emptier.

One Hour. That’s the amount of time she agrees to give him to try and find his way back into her good graces. Not that she thinks for even one minute that it might work.

It won’t, because . . .

Forever. That’s what Odette’s looking for. Someone to spend her life with; someone who’ll see her as more than just one of the guys. And there’s not a thing Austin can do to stop her.

Except maybe tell her that he loves her . . .

Excerpt

Chapter One

Odette Peterson was three sheets to the wind.

Sitting cross-legged on the floor in front of her coffee table, with cherry red boxing gloves on her hands and a glass of wine precariously cupped between them, she was blinking madly and wishing for . . .

Austin.

No, she wasn’t going to say his name or think his name or spell his name or anything. Not anything. Because she was mad at him.

Fit to be tied.
Up in arms.
Seeing red.

Well, the red she was seeing was possibly the gloves, the wine or maybe her hair, reflected back at her in the window that looked out over a currently empty street.

Whatever, she was pissed at him. Still.

And just to make sure that anger stayed at the right temperature to stop her from caving and calling him—her best friend since she was seven years old and he was eight—she decided to listen to the voicemail he’d left the day after he’d ruined everything.

But first, she had to put the wine down, remove the boxing gloves and . . . something else. But what?

Pick up the phone, Odette. She nodded her drunken thanks to the voice in her head. And then, having negotiated all three steps with only one near-fumble of her glass and one slurred curse word, she cued up the message.

“Odie, come on. You’re being ridiculous and you need to talk to me. All I said was that you were better than him”—

She paused the message with a wobbly-but-righteous tap of her finger to the screen before giving Aussie a piece of her mind. “You stupid idiot, you didn’t say I was better than him. You said I was smarter than that and acting like a dumb girl.” She scoffed. Then added an eye roll for good measure. And if the eye roll was so pronounced she swayed in place, then fine. That just meant she was committed to her anger.

A second righteous tap and Aussie’s voice filled her ear again. “And you are. I didn’t mean to upset you, Garfield, so just call me back. You know you want to forgive me. And you know I’m right about Meatball McGee.”

“His name is Mike, not Meatball. And you’re not right. You’re, you’re, you’re–calling me?” She stared at the screen of her phone, a picture of Austin—eyes crossed, tongue poking out, sandy blond curls flopping all over the place—and decided she was going to answer.

For the first time in weeks, she was going to talk to him.

“…an emotionally charged book that makes you feel all sorts of happy!” — Angela, Shameless Book Club

Bio

B. Cranford is a proud Australian living in the USA, a lover of books, breadsticks and bed, and the mother of two children who are far too similar to their father for her liking. A lifelong reader, she dove into the romance genre on the recommendation of her best friend and hasn’t looked back since. Her debut novel, The Brightest Star, a second chance romance with (she hopes) heart and humor was released on July 13, 2017, which just so happened to be her birthday. Because if you release a book on your birthday, you get twice as much cake, and that can only be a good thing.

Review  

This author! I flove her! Just when I think, “There is no way she can top her last book” she does with flying colors and characters.

This is book two in the Avenue series and it’s Austin and Odette’s story.  We were introduced to them in About Time.  I knew their story was gonna be special and it so is!

Austin and Odette’s friendship has spanned decades.  They know each other better than they know themselves.

From Austin’s forgetful tendencies to Odette’s fiery red-headed temper they just work.  Their chemistry is amazeballs!

I loved Odette’s take no prisoners attitude when it comes to moving their friendship into something more.  Her explanation of what she wants, what she demands is fantastic.  I so wish I had her smarts at that age!

From “cuddling lessons” to their hysterically funny texts, especially the text thread about awkward apology cards (that made me laugh out loud and almost shoot the tea I was drinking out of my nose!) You get a bit of everything in this story, wooing, love, humor and oh so swoony sexy times!

The true meaning of family is forefront in this book…“You don’t have to be related to be family” Truer words have never been written. The Andrews’ siblings and the people they love are the true meaning of family and B. writes so eloquently about them.

I have been a fan of B. since I started reading her reviews years ago.  When she decided to write on her own, I knew this gal was going places!  I will forever be a fangirl of the highest order.  Ready with panda puns and breadsticks! You are a bright star B.! I can’t wait to see what you write next!

The Brightest Stars by Anna Todd is available for pre-order!

I love her stories!!

The Brightest Stars, a beautiful and gripping novel from New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling author Anna Todd, is coming September 18th!

The-Brightest-Stars-PRINT-FOR-WEB.jpg

International bestselling author Anna Todd returns with a gripping novel about a young woman’s journey towards love, and the obstacles life throws up at every turn.

Karina knows the harsh realities of military life. And like anyone who has grown up around an army base, she knows the background noise that follows a soldier home from war. That’s why she’s forging her own quiet life in her own little house. But she hasn’t turned her back on her family. She’s the glue that holds them together–when her father is deployed, when her brother, Austin, has another brush with the law.

Karina knows that she has to look after herself, that she can’t always fix what’s broken. But when Austin’s behavior worsens and her father’s reactions grow more extreme, Karina feels her own edges beginning to fray. That’s when she meets him–a closed book she’s desperate to open.

At just twenty, Kael is a handsome, brooding soldier struggling with the aftermath of two tours in Afghanistan. He’s emotionally damaged and closed off. Quiet doesn’t begin to describe him. But as Karina gets used to his stable presence, she finds it hard to ignore the way he makes her feel. In their time together, she finds the stillness she has always wanted and never found. She lets down her guard. And she lets herself fill in the blanks about this mysterious man.

But illusions quickly made are quickly shattered. That’s when Karina has to find her own courage–to untangle the truth from the lies, and decide what she’s going to do about it.

A riveting story about love and lies, THE BRIGHTEST STARS will stay with you long after the last page has been turned.

BLURB

The conclusion to Dirty Sexy Player, the highly anticipated spin-off duet of Dirty Filthy Rich Men.

A sham marriage to an infamous playboy – what could possibly go wrong? Don’t miss the breathtaking, high-stakes conclusion to the Dirty Games duet by New York Times best-selling author Laurelin Paige!

Their union started with a simple plan: to fake a marriage that would allow Elizabeth to take over her father’s company and merge it with Weston’s holdings, creating a vast media empire. But what began as a pretend marriage has become all too real….

Now a bombshell about Weston’s past is keeping him rooted at home while Elizabeth must travel across the globe to take up the company reigns. But their intense connection could bring the entire game crashing down as they’re forced to choose power and family…or the love of a lifetime.

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

With over 1.5 million books sold world wide, Laurelin Paige is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestselling Author. She is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She’s also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn’t do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio. She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.
