  Chapter One   When you’ve lived in New York as long as I have, you start to accept the fact that there are certain undeniable truths about life in this city. 1) Carrie Bradshaw never could have afforded that apartment on a journalist’s salary. 2) Unless your idea of Sunday Funday is a teary three p.m. orange-juice hangover, unlimited mimosa brunch is never a good idea. And 3) this city—and, let’s face it, basically the whole world—is set up for couples. Everything is easier if you’re one half of a pair. Rent is cheaper. Battling the mobs at the grocery store on a weekend is less soul-crushing. And the odds of dying one of those grim, Daily News-type deaths where nobody knows you’re gone until the neighbors start to notice a funny smell from down the hallway? Way less likely when there’s someone around to catch the stench and stop kitty from eating your face. Most of us try to find our other half the old-fashioned way: looking for true love. A partner to fill our lives with joy—or, at the very least, someone to slump in front of Netflix with on a Friday night and stop us from eating a whole block of cheese alone. (Not that I’ve done that. Not at all.) But what happens if that hasn’t worked out for you just yet, but you still need someone on your team? Well, if you’re wealthy, and connected enough to know the number—you call me. The Agency specializes in matchmaking . . . of the fake variety. I’m not aiming to find my clients true love (although, that seems to be a side benefit for a few of them these days), just a true partner-in-crime. Need a fake fiancĂ©e to get your interfering relatives off your case? I’m your woman. Old-school workplace treating you like a brazen hussy because you’re not coupled up? I’ll find a partner for that work retreat that your boss will adore. I’m discreet, professional, and I have a knack for finding just the right match to get your through that tough spot. After all, everyone deserves someone to have their back, even the weirdos. Especially the weirdos. “So, I think I’ve got all the information I need,” I say now, smiling across my desk at today’s client. Jason is the newly-flush CEO of a tech startup that was just bought out by Google, and he needs a date to bring to a company-wide retreat in the Berkshires. Though most my clients are just too busy—or too famous—to find themselves the right date, with Jason I’m pretty sure it’s got more to do with his twenty-dollar haircut and his habit of peppering every conversation with arcane trivia from Star Trek. “I should be able to find someone with an advanced degree in a STEM field and an interest in . . .” I double-check my notes. “Traditional Latvian folk music.” “That’s great,” Jason says, smiling eagerly. He can’t be more than twenty-two, and the fact that he has no idea how to handle his newfound fortune is achingly obvious. At our very first meeting, he parked his brand-new Maserati in a tow zone in front of my office and had to take a cab all the way to Coney Island to get it back. “In the meantime, I want you to go see my friend Lucas down at Bergdorf’s,” I tell him. There’s no way I’m about to send this guy out into the world in his Pac-Man T-shirt and Birkenstocks, no matter how rich he is. After all, I’ve got a reputation to protect. “And I’ve had my assistant Alice make you an appointment at a great salon.” “Sounds good,” Jason says, nodding like a bobblehead. Then his face clouds. “There is one more thing I’m looking for in a date,” he says, suddenly nervous. “And I think it might be a little . . . unorthodox.” “Oh?” I try to keep my face neutral. I have to explain to new clients, gently but firmly, that I’m not running that kind of agency. In fact, I have strict rules about romantic activities—they’re totally forbidden. Jason takes a deep breath. “I’m looking for someone with experience as a Dungeon Master.” Oh, yikes. “Unfortunately that’s not part of the suite of services we offer here,” I say carefully, “but I’d be happy to give you the card of an extremely discreet dominatrix who operates a private club on the Lower East Side, and I’m sure she’ll be able to—” All at once Jason sits bolt upright in his chair. “Wait wait wait,” he interrupts, turning the color of a late-summer tomato. “A dominatrix? What are you talking about?” I frown. “Isn’t that what you just—?” “A Dungeon Master,” he says witheringly. “Like, for Dungeons and Dragons.” “Oh. Oh!” I feel my face flush to match his. “Of course. I didn’t realize—” “Jeez,” he interrupts, looking at me like possibly I’m the perv here. “What kind of operation are you running?” I spend the next twenty minutes reassuring him that we’re on the up and up, then show him out and turn to my assistant, Alice, who’s sitting behind the reception desk typing away at her computer, her dark hair in a tidy Audrey Hepburn topknot at the crown of her head. “How was that?” she asks, raising her eyebrows. “Oh, you know.” I stretch as Thor, our cranky ginger cat hops down off the filing cabinet and prowls across the Persian rug. I bend down to scratch him behind his mangy ears. “Just another day in the coal mines. You can knock off early,” I say, straightening up and smoothing my pencil skirt. “I’ve got a lunch across town, and then I’m just going to take the rest of the day.” Alice tilts her head to the side. “Hot date?” she asks. “I wish,” I say, plucking my jacket off the brass coat rack in the corner. “My dad’s in town.” I’m running late, so I take a car across town to the Palace Hotel, where my dad likes to stay every time he’s in New York. My phone rings while we’re stopped in traffic, and I grimace when I see the caller ID. “Hi, Ryan,” I say, hoping the eye-roll isn’t too obvious in my voice. Ryan Callahan is one of my most difficult, demanding clients. And not because he isn’t attractive. The polar opposite, actually. He was a star quarterback for a pro football team until an injury to his Achilles tendon cut his career short three years ago. Since then he’s had his hand in all kinds of different businesses—sports drinks, fitness apps, even a sneaker line—and his combination of brains and brawn should make him an easy match—if I was just looking for a real date. But the guy needs someone to help him schmooze with investors, and he’s ridiculously picky. He’s auditioned nearly my entire roster, but nobody is good enough. Ryan may be rich and handsome—OK, he’s hot as all get out, with the kind of broad, hard body you want to climb like a mountain—but he’s proving to be a Kilimanjaro-sized pain in my ass. “Hey, Olivia,” he says, his easygoing voice hiding what I know is an iron will. “We need to talk.” “Of course,” I reply. “I’m glad you called. Tell me more about why you didn’t like Amy?” And Tessa, and Claire, and Erin, I silently add. “It’s not that I didn’t like her, exactly,” Ryan says as the car pulls up in front of the hotel. I scoot out of the backseat, smiling at the doorman as I slip through the revolving door and head for the lobby. The Palace is quintessential old New York, with marble floors and crystal chandeliers, the smell of lilies heavy in the air. “She was fine,” Ryan continues. “But I need the perfect wingwoman, you know? This investor meeting is a huge deal.” “No, I know it is,” I promise, wanting to head him off at the pass before he launches into his pitch—again. He’s trying to raise capital to launch a chain of health food kiosks, and his potential investor is an old-school finance guy, so to make a good impression he needs someone smart and sophisticated. Which, for the record, all my girls are. But none of them have passed muster with Captain America over here. And the truth is I’m starting to run out of options. “There’s a woman named Lauren I want you to meet,” I tell him now, climbing the wide carpeted steps that lead to the lobby. “She’s an executive assistant at a gallery downtown—very smart, very culturally savvy. I’ll have Alice make you a dinner reservation for this weekend.” “If you say so,” Ryan says, sounding uncertain. “I just think . . .” I lose the rest of his sentence in the loud buzzing that suddenly fills my ears as I turn the corner into the lobby—and catch sight of a familiar woman strolling across the plush oriental rug. “Shit,” I blurt, stopping in my tracks and scooting behind a massive floral arrangement before she can see me. My heart jackhammers violently against my ribs as I peek out and check I wasn’t just hallucinating. But nope. There she is. Vanessa Simpson, my psycho college roommate in the flesh. A lot of flesh. She’s sashaying through the lobby in a flimsy sundress with a Birkin bag slung over one arm. Ryan breaks off. “Olivia?” he says. “Are you OK?” “Um, yup,” I promise distractedly, darting behind a bellman pushing a loaded luggage cart across the lobby. “Completely. I’m listening.” He keeps talking, but I peek through a couple of garment bags to watch Vanessa, who’s stalking across the lobby like she thinks it’s a runway. She was my roommate freshman year and made my life a living hell. There were the normal roommate annoyances, sure—the clothes-stealing, the messiness, the loud hookups so I had to sleep with earplugs and an eye mask in case she came stumbling back at two a.m. with a guy and stripped naked right up against the door. (Twice.) And then there were the next-level stunts, the kind that took her from “selfish and spoiled” to “psycho in the making.” Like casually wiping my finals papers from my laptop because, whoops, she couldn’t figure out how to download the new Housewives episodes. Or the time I got a particularly gnarly zit on my lip and she told everyone on our floor I had mouth herpes. It took me a week to figure out why the RA kept offering to escort me to the health center. If there was one silver lining to living with a raging She-Demon like Vanessa, it was her big brother Tristan, who was at school down at Princeton and took the train up to visit sometimes. He always invited me out to dinner with the two of them, asking me about my classes and what books I was reading. To say I had a crush on him was an understatement—the truth is, I would have hitchhiked to New Jersey in a pair of crotchless panties if he’d ever shown one tiny glimmer of interest. As it was, I settled for stalking—ahem, scrutinizing every post he made on social media and dreaming up elaborate fantasies in which he rode up on a fiery steed—or a Toyota Corolla, whatever—and rescued me from undergraduate hell. But that was then. The minute freshman year was over, I switched dorms and kept my distance from Vanessa. I haven’t seen either one of them since graduation, and I fully intend to keep it that way. I skulk past the lobby and into an alcove, then drag my focus back to the conversation. Ryan is a big, important client, and I’m determined to find him someone who ticks all the boxes. “Ashley will be perfect,” I tell him. “I think you two will really hit it off.” I hang up with Ryan and peek around the corner to check the lobby. All clear. Vanessa is mercifully gone—off to have her broomstick re-bristled, maybe, or to steal candy from a small child with a terminal illness. I let out a sigh of relief and head into the restaurant, where my dad is already seated at a table by the window, a glass of Basil Hayden on the rocks sweating in his hand. “Hi, Dad,” I say, bending to kiss him on the cheek. “Hiya, sweetheart.” My dad retired down to Key West a few years ago and spends his days relaxing on the beach and taking friends out on his fishing boat. But he’s still a Northeasterner at his core and he makes his way back like a homing pigeon every few months. “How you doing?” I order a drink and we spend a few minutes catching up. “Should we order?” I ask finally, glancing down at the menu. “In a minute,” my dad says. “First, I’ve got news.” I raise my eyebrows, I can’t help it. Suddenly I know exactly where this is going. “Let me guess,” I deadpan. “You’re getting married again?” My dad makes an exaggerated who, me? face. “Well, hell, Livvie,” he says, sounding a little hurt. “When you say it like that you make it sound as if I’ve got a new bride every week.” Every couple of years, more like. My mom died when I was in high school, and ever since then my dad has gone through wives like other men go through undershirts. Whoever this woman is, she’ll be new stepmom #4. I try not to let it get to me—it’s his life, after all, and I want him to be happy, even if it does mean having to pretend to be interested in some daffy stranger’s rare doll collection just because she happens to be married to my dad. “Oh, I’m sorry,” I tease, “so you’re not getting married again?” “Well, yes,” my dad admits sheepishly. Then he brightens. “But this one’s a winner. Really, Livvie, it’s someone I’m sure you’ll like.” “Oh yeah?” I ask, taking a sip of my prosecco. “What’s she like?” “You already know her,” my dad says, visibly pleased with himself. “In fact: you’ve lived together.” “We’ve—wait, what?” I set my glass down on the table. There’s a horrifying moment where I start to put two and two together, but it’s like I can’t force my brain to finish the thought before two hands with long pink nails like talons land on my shoulders. “Surprise!” I whirl around and there’s Vanessa suddenly looming over me like a Disney villain, as if she’d appeared in a puff of smoke. “Guess what, Livvie,” she trills, baring her teeth in a wide, white smile. “I’m going to be your new mom!”

Blog Tour & Review by Marina: The Controversial Princess by Jodi Ellen Malpas

TCP_BLOG TOUR.jpg
The Controversial Princess by Jodi Ellen Malpas Publication Date: May 22nd, 2018 Genre: Contemporary Romance
TCP Final Cover
Her father is The King of England.
She is The Controversial Princess.
Regarded as down to earth by the press and rebellious by The King, Princess Adeline refuses to bow to the royal expectations her title carries. She knows better than anyone that the united front of the royal family is nothing but smoke and mirrors – lies and secrets masked by power and privilege. She wants no part of it, and she will never surrender to The King’s demand to marry a man she does not love. But despite Adeline’s determination to retain her free will, she remains deeply unfulfilled, feeling caged and suffocated.
That is until she meets Josh Jameson. Drawn in by his confidence, Adeline is soon captivated by the scandalously sexy American actor. His ability to penetrate her defences overwhelms her – his touch is pure fire, and his allure overpowering. Nothing has ever made her feel so alive in a world where she’s otherwise slowly drowning. However, while Josh may be Hollywood royalty, he’s not actual royalty, and Adeline knows The King and his advisors will do everything in their power to keep them apart.
But Josh Jameson becomes the princess’s ultimate vice.
And although she bows to no one, she bows to him.

Excerpt:
Leaning over, he kisses the tip of my nose. “Now, food’s on the way. We’ll have a carpet picnic, what do ya say?” “I’ve never had a carpet picnic before.” “Say what?” He looks horrified. “Never?” My shoulders jump up on a little shrug. “It’s all fine dining, posh china, and solid silver cutlery at a table that’s so shiny you can see your face in it.” “Then tonight we fix that.” He pulls me up and walks us through to the lounge. “Get all the cushions on the floor.” He pulls a throw off the back of a chair and wafts it into the air while I pull all the cushions from the couch. I watch as Josh gets on his hands and knees and starts pulling at the corners of the blanket, straightening it out and placing cushions. I have a permanent smile on my face, fascinated by his deep concentration. “You are doing a tremendously good job,” I say, clearing my face of my smile when his motions falter and he looks up at me. One of his eyes narrows, and in a lightning move, he snatches my wrist and yanks me down to the floor. I cry in surprise, being rolled to my back until I’m once again pinned against something by his body. Not that I’m complaining. Would never dream of it. I blow a tickling hair from my nose and grin at him. “You’re making fun of me.” He dips and bites the end of my nose. “Not at all.” I chuckle, squirming beneath him while he makes a meal of my face. “Too good for a carpet picnic, are you? You want a throne?” “Definitely not,” I blurt. “Unless your face will be my throne.” Josh pulls back speedily on a little choke, his eyes bulging. I press my lips together as he stares at me in shock, like how could such a vulgar thing have fallen from the lips of a princess? “I think I just fell in love with you.” It’s my turn to choke. “Blimey, you fall easily, don’t you?” “Actually, I don’t fall at all.” “No?” He shakes his head. “Baby, I’ll be your throne any day of the week.” “Honored.” “It is me who’s honored. It’s not every day a real-life princess tells you she wants to sit on your face.” Laughter erupts from deep within me, my eyes clenching shut, my head thrown back. My position and lack of control gives Josh the perfect opportunity to ravish my throat. And he does, growling dramatically, squirming above me...rubbing me.




What a Delightfully delicious read!!
The authors penchant for writing captivating stories is undeniable!
You can feel the sizzling tension crackling in the air!! The innuendos between Adeline and Josh are downright funny if not rather naughty indeed. My mind was whooshing...my heart thumping.
I admired Adeline. I thought her defiant ways defined her as a real person not wanting to conform to the regal responsibilities.
I wasn't sure what to make of Josh to be quite honest. He did redeem himself though as I kept reading!
This book was riveting to the point that I couldn’t put it down!! That ending though!!
Absolutely loved it!

About MELT FOR YOU

A wallflower gets seduction tips from a playboy athlete—until love changes the rules.
Socially awkward Joellen Bixby has a date every Saturday—with her cat, a pint of ice cream, and fantasies of the way-too-handsome Michael Maddox. She’d give anything to win over the unattainable CEO of her firm, but how can she when she blends in so well with her cubicle? The answer may be closer than she thinks.
Cameron McGregor is a cocky, tattooed Scottish rugby captain who just moved in next door. He’s not Jo’s type—at all—but the notorious playboy is offering to teach the wallflower everything he knows about inspiring desire. Though a lot of women have rumpled Cam’s kilt, Jo is special. Far from the ugly duckling she thinks she is, in Cam’s eyes she’s sharp, funny, and effortlessly sexy. Now, thanks to him, Jo is blooming with confidence and has the man of her dreams within reach.
Unfortunately for Cam, he’s just helped to push the woman of his dreams into the arms of another man—and now he’s in the fight of his life to keep this beauty from getting away.

This is the first book I have read by this author but it won’t be the last, I fell head over hills for Cameron McGregor who happens to be a tattooed Scottish rugby player with a killer sense of humour.
Cameron is spending the off season at a cousin’s Manhattan apartment which happens to be across the hall from Joellen Bixby’s apartment, his love of loud rap music draws her attention if fact it makes her so mad she decides to have it out with him, what she doesn’t expect is a hot, tattooed guy in a kilt to open the door to her.....
The attraction between Cameron and Joellen is instant, the chemistry is sizzling but he is extremely hot and confident and she sees herself as overweigh and clumsy, can Cameron make her see the woman he sees when he looks at Joellen. This book is the perfect mix of romance and humour, it has some hilarious laugh out loud moments as well as some very tender times, it’s also about someone learning to love themselves as well as learning sometimes the person we don’t see is the person who is right for us. I loved the characters and I loved the banter and I’m looking forward to reading more from this author. 



What’s not to like about Cameron McGregor a cocky, tattooed Scottish rugby captain moving into the house next door? 

J.T. Geissinger is a new author to me and I found her writing to be strong and compelling.

Shy and not comfortable around men Joellen Bixby lusts after her company CEO Michael Maddox. However she is totally clueless about how to go after who she wants.

Cam volunteers to give her some ideas and as she slowly blossoms under his guidance, Cam realises that he may have made a mistake.

Cam sees beneath the surface and is attracted to Jo who is totally blind to his attraction to her. Jo’s confidence grows in leaps and bounds, Cam only becomes more invested and falls deeper for Jo.

Will Jo see that Cam could be the man of her dreams or will Cam lose Jo before he even gets a chance with her?

The banter between Cam and Jo had me in stitches, such was the humour. Mind you it took a while for the tension between the two to abate.
Cameron McGregor is such a great character, not only was it a riot but he was caring and truly wanted to help Jo. 

Jo had many insecurities not only with body issues but her self esteem was so low it was almost non existent.

These subjects were handled well and I liked how the author portrayed both Cam and Jo, particularly in regards to these issues. 

All in all Melt For You was a good romantic read which I enjoyed.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book through NetGalley from the publisher.

Rebel Heart is book 2 in the Rush Series Duet and it starts right where book one Rebel Heir finished and once again our emotions are off on a roller coaster. I really don’t want to write a review that’s full of spoilers because I do believe this is a must read duet and I don’t want to spoil this story for anyone .
I fell for Rush in book one but in book two my feelings soared to a whole different level because this man is just perfect and this story just felt so true to life, my emotions were pulled in so many different directions but in the end I was left feeling fuzzy and warm inside. The journey Rush and Gia needed to take to get their HEA wasn’t plain sailing there were so many obstacles they had to overcome but facing them together made them both so much stronger.
This book is a love story like no other because Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward are not afraid to show there characters vulnerability as well as there strengths, Rush and Gia are perfect for each other but not before they face the challenges fate has put in their way.
Looking forward to more from this very talented writing duo.

The rollercoaster of stories that will have you on the ride of your life!!
When you read a book in one sitting, that's a sign of an unbelievably great read!
I'm still coming to terms with the emotions that sucked me into Rush and Gia's riveting story.
I have such a #RushCrush!! I'm telling you, it's a thing!! 
This book starts were Rebel Heir ends. And you have to ask the question. What on earth will happen?!
Good Lord...my heart went on the ride of its life...5 hours to be exact. I feel like Gia and Rush are old friends and I'm watching their story from afar. I just loved their banter, I loved the steamy moments. But what really got me was the way Rush was feeling. It cut me deep inside too. 
The authors have certainly written a story that will tug at your heart. Do Gia and Rush get their happily ever after or do they go their separate ways??!! You need to read it for yourself. You have to read the riveting conclusion to their story. Go in with an open mind, and an open heart. 
Definite must read series!!





     

How to kick off a great summer in the Hamptons: Snag a gorgeous rental on the beach. Check. Get a job at a trendy summer haunt. Check. How to screw up a great summer in the Hamptons: Fall for the one guy with a dark leather jacket, scruff on his face, and intense eyes that doesn’t fit in with the rest of the tony looking crowd. A guy you can’t have when you’ll be leaving at the end of the season. Check. Check. Check. I should add—especially when the guy is your sexy, tattooed God of a boss. Especially when he not only owns your place of employment but inherited half of the town. Especially when he’s mean to you. Or so I thought. Until one night when he demanded I get in his car so he could drive me home because he didn’t want me walking in the dark. That was sort of how it all started with Rush. And then little by little, some of the walls of this hardass man started to come down. I never expected that the two of us, seemingly opposites from the outside, would grow so close. I wasn't supposed to fall for the rebel heir, especially when he made it clear he didn’t want to cross the line with me. As the temperature turned cooler, the nights became hotter. My summer became a lot more interesting—and complicated. All good things must come to an end, right? Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

*SYNOPSIS*
Michael
I fucked up. In every single way imaginable. I've let down everyone I’ve ever cared about. Now, I’m determined to make it right.
I’m back, and I’m totally at the mercy of Shriller and Jax, family friends.
And her.
The one woman I’m convinced will be the end of me. The toughest addiction I’ve ever faced.
Dani
Desperation is a funny thing. Out of college with no job and slowly running out of money, I’m the epitome of desperate.
Desperate to prove myself. Desperate not to be the spoiled girl with daddy issues.
Desperate enough to take a job that’ll push me to my breaking point.
I can do this. I have to.
I just have to keep reminding myself not to fall for the charming, damaged boy-turned-man who holds secrets deeper than I could have ever imagined.

Synopsis

This whole contest was supposed to be easy. I know, I know. Famous last words. It’s a long story, but I messed up at work. Big time. To earn back the trust of my boss, I promised to save one of our magazines. Yep. That Hot Dad contest you’ve seen advertised all over the place was my idea. And if I’m successful, if I’m able to increase our online readership, then I get a shot at my dream job. But the one thing I never expected to happen, happened: Contestant number ten, Grayson Malone. Hello, Mr. Difficult. And did I mention sexy as hell? Unfortunately he knows me. The old me, anyway. And while we might be older now, I remind him of before. Of the woman who broke his heart, who hardened him, and who left him alone to raise the cutest little boy I’ve ever seen. But I don’t want a relationship. And I definitely don’t fall for single dads with baggage. Even ones with chiseled abs and killer smiles. But he got to me. They got to me. Him and his son and their messy, crazy life. But I got to him too. I see the stolen glances. I feel the walls he built start to crumble. I recognize that there’s an unexpected beauty to the chaos in his life. And now that the contest is about to end, we’re left to decide whether the last six months were just fun or if what we have is worth risking it all?

Excerpt

But by the time I reach her, my blood boils with irrationality spurred on by too much alcohol.“Can I have a moment?” I ask as I walk up to her and grab her elbow, pushing her down the darkened hallway. “What is your problem?” She hisses as she fights me every step of the way. We get looks. I get looks. I don’t care because all I keep seeing is Vince’s hands on her arm. His eyes on her tits. His bullshit game I can spot a mile away. I find the closest door down the hallway leading to the bathrooms, and it opens. I push her through it, barely noticing that it’s an office of sorts before the door is shut, her back is up against it, and my mouth is covering hers. Take. Goddammit. That’s my only thought as I fit my lips to hers and take out my anger on her mouth with tongue and teeth and every fucking lick and nip in between. “What—” “I’m so pissed at you.” It’s all I say. It’s the only chance I give her to come up for air before my lips are back on hers. Before my tongue wars with hers. Before my body admits it would beg, borrow, and steal in order to taste every other part of her. Groan. I swallow the tiny sound she makes in our kiss as my hands hold her neck still and my lips wage an all-out assault. She hesitates—just a split second—before she reacts. Before her body bows into me, and her mouth argues back. Fist. Her hand in my shirt. Her other hand at the back of my neck as our bodies meet—pressed knee to chest. Her perfume in my nose. Her hair tickling my cheeks. The feel of her tits against my chest. Give. I can’t get enough. I’m mad at her. I want her. I don’t want to want her. Christ, do I want her. “Gray.” A murmured protest. I tear my lips from hers, shove off the door I have her pressed against, and stride to the other side of the room. “You are . . . you just . . .” It’s as if I can barely breathe. Christ, I’m mad at you.” She stands there, lips parted, chest heaving, and golden brown curls messed from my hands, but her eyes look hurt. A hurt I don’t want to see but can’t deny. “Why?” “You did this,” I accuse as I try to manage the anger that’s waging a war against my desire. “Did what?” Her eyes narrow. Her hand goes to press against her chest. “Made me want you.” for CGFC Grayson: I’ve been thinking about you all day. I look down at the text and smile before turning my attention back to Rissa and our plans for how we’re going to end this round of voting and move on to the top five. “So, I think we close it out and then maybe take the next week and announce one of the finalists each day. Give little tidbits about each of them, make readers like them more, just have fun with it.” My phone beeps again with another text, and I bite back the new grin trying to form on my lips. Rissa only huffs, eyeing my phone with annoyance. “Sorry, let me turn my ringer off.” And then I have to feign nonchalance when I look down at my phone and find another text. Grayson: My dick is rock hard, and it’s you I’m imagining. It’s in my hand when I’d rather it be in your mouth with my fingers in your pussy, working you into a frenzy. “Is everything okay?” Rissa asks, making me realize I must have made a noise when I read the text. “You look startled.” I glance back at the text again and shake my head while every part of my body comes to life. “Yeah, it’s, uh, fine.” “Your ringer.” Her brows are lifted as she glances to my phone and then back to me. My finger?” I squeak, thinking she saw the phone screen. “Ringer. Sound on your phone.” “Oh, yes . . . sorry.” Flustered, I fumble with my cell, and before I can even switch it off, another text alert pings. Grayson: I want to bend you over and watch as my cock slides in and out of you. “So back to next week . . .” “Yes,” I swallow over the desire lodged in every place it should be and try not to glance at my phone as it vibrates again. “Are you good with that plan?” Rissa asks as I shift in my seat to abate the sudden ache burning brighter than bright. “Yes. Sure. I think that sounds like a great plan.” Grayson: I want my cock buried so deep that you feel every damn inch of me. “Are you sure you’re okay?” “Yeah, why?” My voice breaks like a prepubescent teenager. Grayson: I want you to come so hard you have to bite the pillow. “You look a little flushed. Are you coming down with something?” Grayson: You always have a choice. Isn’t that what you said to me once? Make a choice, Sidney. Isn’t it time to head to lunch? “I mean, yeah, maybe.” I pull at my collar some. “Maybe that’s why I feel so flushed all of a sudden.” Grayson: Meet me on the backside of The Cottages. Room Six. Fifteen minutes. “Either that,” she says as she stands and heads to the door, only turning back to give me a wink, “or you’re guilty as hell. Maybe you should go take care of that itch texting you . . . or take some Tylenol. Whichever one it is, I think you should take the afternoon off.” Grayson: Choose me. “Oh.” It’s the only thing I can think to say because my brain is otherwise occupied imagining Grayson following through on his promises. “And, Sid?” “Yeah?” “I sure hope he’s every bit worth breaking the rules.” She winks. “It’s about damn time. Your secret is safe with me.”

I cant even begin to describe how I felt reading Grayson Malone's story. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole book from start to finish wondering and hoping for a beautiful outcome. 
Oh boy, I really felt for Grayson and his son. Doing his absolute best at being the best Dad he can be, that made him admirable in my eyes.  His brothers and their wives were a hoot, his parents very supportive and when he doesnt take into account his own feelings and wants, they certainly tell him what for. 
I loved alot of this book and the characters and it just made me want to live in the town myself. I really loved Sidney, her indecisiveness, her sass, her need to show her Dad that she can do her job. But what she doesnt count on is a certain Man and things certainly get interesting indeed.  This book was wonderful. The characters made me smile. The whole storyline was just enthralling that I wanted to keep on reading forever. I loved the beginning, middle and ending. 
The author has written it in such a way you come out feeling like the whole world is right again. A story that wll definitely tug at your heart just as it did mine, in so many ways!!




Worth the Risk had all the bones of a great story after all who doesn’t love a single dad who puts his child above all other, well this book was more than  great this book was brilliant. This story had my emotions all over the place I had knots in my stomach and I loved it.
Grayson a rescue helicopter pilot is used to taking risks and facing danger in his job so why won’t he take some chances with his own life well the answer to that is simple his adorable little boy will always be his first priority and that means making sure no one gets close enough to maybe walk away and hurt them both down the track. 
Sidney is a city girl who’s job is her number one priority and if moving to Sunnyville to take a step closer to her dream job is what she needs to do then so be it but what she didn’t expect was to fall in love with a  small town, it’s nosey inhabitants and a single dad named Grayson and his adorable son.
Grayson’s story was the one I had been waiting for and it did not disappoint, I love Sunnyville and it’s small town America inhabitants, I love the friendships and the loyalty the characters share, the chemistry was sizzling and the attraction was instant but the queen of slow burn kept us on the edge of out seat throughout this beautifully written love story. Another 5 Star read from K.Bromberg author who never seems to disappoint.
