Best Friends Fall in Love

newrel1Here’s another billionaire romance. Falling for Her Billionaire Best Friend. This one is by my friend from Idaho, Maria Hoagland. It goes with a series–the Billionaire Bachelor Cove–done by different authors, but each book can be read alone. If you read them all, you get a more wholistic picture of these group of neighbors, but it’s not necessary.

In this one, next-door neighbors, Ryland and Mary Alice, are the MC’s. They’ve known each other all their life, run in the same power circles, and their parents have been pushing them together forever, hoping that a romantic relationship will stick. But both are comfortable in their friendship and don’t feel the need to rock the boat, so to say, until they do. Here’s the blurb. Continue reading

Synopsis

Loss is inevitable, as Evie Hampton knows all too well. But despite losing her mother to cancer and her older brother to a war, she knows she’s one of the lucky ones. After all, she still has her father, a distinguished professor of medieval history. And she has Gary Redhawk, the man she loves despite the emotional scars he carries from the Second World War–and despite her father’s opposition to their relationship.

When Evie’s car suddenly careens off the road, she chalks it up to poor maintenance or sheer bad luck making another appearance in her life. Little does she know a host of hardships is just beginning–the car was her father’s, and the brake lines were deliberately cut. Someone wants them dead–but why? All fingers point to Gary, a man with a troubled past and no solid alibi, but Evie is unwilling to believe he’s involved. Determined to uncover the truth, she begins to piece together a startling picture of deception and vice. But as she closes in on the truth, it is clear that someone is determined to silence her–and the next attempt on her life may be a deadly success. Continue reading

The FriEND Zone

friend zoneHere’s another fantastic, fun read for summer! I love Sariah Wilson’s romances. They are both funny and swoony. You can’t ever go wrong with her books. Her newest release was star-worthy material. The characters, Logan Hunt and Jess, meet each other when he comes to play football for her father at a junior college in Washington after getting kicked off a superior college team in Texas for a bar brawl. The new coach has rules—#1 being stay away from girls, especially his daughter, Jess. When she is paired up with him to tutor him in math, sparks sizzle, but they must keep their relationship strictly in the friend zone. But when the sparks ignite into flames, will they be able to keep their feelings in check and keep her dad from discovering their forbidden romance?

I read this one in a day. It was captivating. The characters were fun, their inner demons great, but my favorite part was the last quarter of the book when Logan really grows and determines to be the man he knows he can be so he can respect himself. Love-loved seeing his courage to do what was right. The romance was swoon-worthy, and it was just a feel-good book with funny parts that made me laugh. I love how this author always writes fun, clean romances that still have sizzle.

And on the sizzling note, enjoy your 4th of July if you live in the good ole’ USA. Have a sizzling BBQ and sizzling fireworks, and if you need even more sizzle, grab a copy of this book! You won’t regret it.
