Samara
“Okay so it’s time to introduce the person to your left. They should have told you enough about themselves right now.” Martine, the uber-happy, bouncy pony-tailed teacher instructed us.
I was not uber-happy, or bouncy. I was super pissed off.
“Samara, could you introduce the person to your left?”
Yeah, pick on me first why don’t you?
Sighing and blowing air above my top lip, I pointed to the woman next to me. “This is Janet.”
She shook her head. “No, no. Jeanette.”
I rolled my eyes. “This is Jeanette. She’s been sent back to Cupid classes because she did something dumb.” I didn’t know what it was but if she hadn’t she wouldn’t be here.
“Well, let’s not use the word ‘dumb’ shall we. Jeanette just-”
“Fucked up?” I stated trying to be helpful.
“Let’s move along. Max, could you please introduce Samara?”
Max beamed like the goody-goody twat he was. From now on I was calling him Vax, due to his sucking skills and being full of crap.
“Samara is here because she set up Taylor Swift with Tom Hiddleston and we all know what a car crash that turned out to be.” He elbowed me. “I knew that wasn’t real. Did you give him the t-shirt? It looked like it could fit you?”
Martine’s face clouded over. Yeah she wasn’t so happy now was she?
“Samara did not set up Tom and Taylor. That is an outright lie.”
I folded my arms over my chest. “Well someone must have done it. Seriously ruined Tom for a lot of women she did.”
Martine stomped out of the carefully constructed circle of chairs she’d made us put together and grabbed a thick file from her table. Then she stomped back in.
“Here we go. Samara Leighton. Reasons for being back at Cupid Inc. Training Headquarters.
Samara’s behaviour towards her local colleagues resulted in one colleague being ridiculed and having to seek counselling. I quote. ‘What kind of person draws attention to an unfortunate mishap of another? Samara is crazy’.”
“Crazy is not waxing your vagina and then sitting with your legs apart in a spa.” I informed everyone.
“Samara engineered a speed dating event prior to the opening of the dating agency in Withernsea and we believe saw a man she liked there herself. She then ‘accidentally’ turned up on his date. This man is now her husband. Now, fortunately the date she ruined wasn’t fated anyway, but what she did that day was stupid.”
“We’re madly in love. The best match ever.” I looked at the other faces sat around. “Well we were. Now my husband is in kennels. KENNELS. They turned him into a dog.”
Martine carried on. “Samara’s monthly inputted figures included those pairings from Withernsea Dating Agency, run by Shelley Landry, with no actual input from Samara at all.
“It says pairings for the month. It doesn’t specifically say my pairings. That’s on Cupid Inc. They should be more specific.” I complained.
“It’s lazy, Samara.”
“So I’m Samara. I’m crazy, stupid, and lazy. That’s how you need to announce me to all the others, Vax.”
“Max.”
“What-ev-er. My introduction is complete.”

RHR RATING 5*/5

On reading the forward of the book,I was intrigued to find that this new series is,I guess a cross-over type,as in it features character(s) that have appeared elsewhere,(Operation Alpha)but have been shared as it were with the author who creates this story (Freya Barker).
The book blurb gives enough detail to hook the reader in,and in my case,as I’ve read Freya’s previous books,I was excited to read more about Keith Blackfoot,as he’s been around in more than one of them.

I really enjoyed this whole story,as I’ve said before in a previous review,I like that her character’s are further on in years(30’s/40’s),we get a DUAL POV,recurring characters pop up,which is another plus for me,the relationship between Autumn and Keith builds gradually,both shy of commitment due to each of their pasts,there was a slow burn and not a quick get together. Alongside of that there is a bit of drama,and mystery that ultimately has a connection to Autumn’s arrival in Durango which made it an enjoyable story that I will read again,and I hope there will be more to come.

 

 

 

Freya Barker inspires with her stories about ‘real’ people, perhaps less than perfect, each struggling to find their own slice of happy.

She is the author of the Cedar Tree and Portland, ME Series, the Northern Lights Collection and the Rock Point Series. She is also co-author of the SnapShot Series.

99¢ for a limited time!

Purchase: Amazon | Apple Books | Barnes & Noble | Kobo

Seven years ago, I gave my vow to a man.

Except it wasn’t a wedding…

Because Brett Jackson was the epitome of anti-marriage–a dirty-talking tattoo artist with a penchant for booze, bimbos and blue-eyed women.

I was none of those.

Guess that’s why he walks into my new apartment with my not-so-nice roommate on his arm…as her new boyfriend.

But this is not seven years ago. I’m over him; I really am.
So why does it bother me so much when he catches me naked in my new place?

Why does his searing stare at my body stay with me?

Why am I wishing for a repeat and wanting to break the most important vow I’ve ever made?

A vow that will break both me and Brett…and turn the Manhattan life I’ve built for myself upside down.

AUTHOR’S NOTE: This is a full-length, stand alone, best friend’s brother/second chance romance with humor, twists and heat. Enjoy!

It was supposed to be an innocent wager, a harmless game.

It turned out to be so much more.

Maybe that’s because everything involving Violet Keats was so much more. More frustrating. More pain-in-the-ass. More sexy than anything I’d ever seen.

You know what they say: All’s fair in love and the law. And what happens to Manhattan’s toughest lawyer when she ends up on the wrong side of my bitter family feud should be no different…

Until one night changes everything.

I knew what taking this dangerous bet would do to her. What I never bet on is what taking this gamble would do to me…

What to say without giving too much away?
I’m not going to really as it would spoil it,but once again Jacob has created a fantastic story that although is a standalone,it is a great continuation of the series. I loved how the story developed,there is humor,surprising twists,and a good mix of game details,alongside previous character’s appearing.I think this is the best one to date..especially with the Epilogue(s) !
Looking forward to the next in the series.

Fumbled Love Release Blitz

 

 

Title: Fumbled Love
Author: Lila Rose
Genre: Romantic Comedy

Blurb

 

The one day
English teacher Reagan Wild is late for work—and looks like she dressed herself
in the dark—she remembers Carter Anthony, a well-known football star, is coming
to the school to deliver a talk to her overexcited students.
While
Reagan knows Carter from her high school days, since he was her past crush, she
wasn’t ready to see him again. At the time, she hated being invisible. But
right now, she wished she could simply disappear.
Carter
Anthony is keen to give back to his hometown, but what he doesn’t expect is
getting something in return. When a chance encounter with Reagan, the shy girl
from his past, happens, he knows instinctively this woman is supposed to be in
his life.
With an
embarrassing ability to blurt out whatever’s on her mind, Reagan doesn’t understand
Carter’s attention. She has no doubt, though, he’ll soon realize his mistake
when he discovers just how crazy she and her family are. But no matter what he
sees, what he hears, or how her looney family behaves, he doesn’t run. In fact,
Carter’s family seem just as unique as hers.
Through dog
poop, naked yoga, and the paparazzi’s, can Carter and Reagan have any hope in
love, even when it’s fumbled?

RHR RATING 5*/5
A new to me Author,and a ‘second chance’ Rom com story that had me laughing out loud right from the start!
The blurb gives away enough of the concept to the story,so I don’t feel the need to go into great detail,but what I will say is it’s in DUAL POV’s, with great characters,in not only the leads,the side characters are an added bonus,with the potential for more -which I hope there will be,especially Brooke (Reagan’s best friend) and Dustin (Carter’s team mate).
Alongside the hilarious moments,it’s a slow burn to the hotness and I really enjoyed reading and couldn’t put it down.

Alex-Zander Metcalf knew his life would always be filled with twists and turns, especially living in the public eye while playing the role of front man for his band Ivory Tower. That’s what made life interesting and he loved every aspect about his job in the music world.

Living in a long-term polyamorous relationship with a husband and a wife also created a fair amount of ups and downs. Add two rambunctious daughters to the house and you had a sweet cocktail of chaos and pure joy and the unexpected awaiting him every day. His life was overflowing, but he wouldn’t have changed a thing, because it was damn near perfect.

He knew nothing in life was guaranteed and never to take things for granted, but that didn’t have him anymore prepared for what he was facing now. With his life completely upside down, Alex wasn’t sure how he’d ever be able to move forward. But life as he knew it was gone, and it was up to him to dig deep and find a way through the fog with the only remaining “constant” in his life: Chase.

How do you find a new path when you feel so lost you can’t see the road ahead of you through the unrelenting darkness? Where do you even begin such a journey, when the landscape is so vastly different from what was once familiar, and the resentment you have for needing to start over tastes like acrid bitterness on your tongue?

Alex must find the strength to push on and find a way to reinvent himself and all the relationships in his life, but creating this new version of himself won’t come easy.

Alex is Rocking more Chase’s world. Check out what Amazon readers have to say.

RHR RATING 5*/5

I’ve read this series,and loved them all…in fact I did a re-read in preparation for this release,as it had been a while since I’d read them-and to be honest,Danni wasn’t one of my favorite characters(I’d forgotten how she came across in bk 2 Take What You Want) So on reading the blurb for Reinventing Us…I figured that something major would have happened to her-she wouldn’t have just left or cheated on either one of them…and in the Prologue,I didn’t expect it to go like it did!
From then it is a journey of grief,suffering,insecurities and feeling of failure that we see Alex gradually spiraling ,which has an effect on him, Chase,their daughter’s,and fellow band members.
However,Chase is not giving up on his love for Alex,and neither are the guys from both bands.That was another thing about this book that I loved – the inclusion of all the guys,even with the emotional side,there was some humor added,and of course,when Alex and Chase re-connect on an intimate level,it is H.O.T (Ann does write M/M particularly well),and with a couple of new characters introduced,this is not the last we’ll see of these guys,and I’m excited to see what/who’s next.

RHR Rating 5*/5

This is another very enjoyable story,which can easily be read as a Standalone,but for those of us who have read the previous books in this series,it is yet again,another welcome addition.
The book blurb gives enough away,so I won’t go into much detail as to all that happens,so not to spoil things,but I will say that (not to take anything away from his other works) Jacob writes the ‘sports romance’ very well-there is a good balance of the game details(I’m not a follower of sports but I do like reading in this genre)along with the rest of the story,that the reader is fully engaged from start to finish.
I loved that their journey to a HEA wasn’t just a quick,hot tale…Grace doesn’t fall for Trevor right away,and there are some funny interactions between them,leading up to the inevitable.Both of them do have issues,and of course there is some drama/angst along the way.Another plus point for me,was the recurring characters having some involvement in the story ,along with the introduction of new ones (meaning more to come-no pressure Jacob!)
All in all,with DUAL POV’s,a well written,and thought out addition to this series,and I can’t wait to see what/who’s next!
