Title: BAYSIDE ESCAPE

Author: Melissa Foster

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Bayside Escape:

Fall in love at Bayside, where sandy beaches, good friends, and true love come together in the sweet small towns of Cape Cod. Bayside Summers is a series of standalone steamy romance novels featuring alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They’re fun, flirty, flawed, deeply emotional, always passionate, and easy to relate to.

Hold on to your hat for Violet’s wildly hot love story! Lizza is up to her old tricks again, and Violet is in for the surprise of a lifetime!

Two years ago Violet Vancroft was a nomadic artist who never wanted to put down roots and Andre Shaw was a prominent Boston physician whose roots ran too deep to unearth. Their love didn’t stand a chance-or at least that’s what Violet believed when she received a plea for help from the sister she’d never really known-so she snuck away like a thief in the night.

Now Andre travels the world setting up new medical clinics, and Violet has finally found the family she’d always craved and the roots she’d never known she wanted. When their paths cross unexpectedly, it’s not the reunion either one imagined. But they’ve never stopped loving each other, and after the dust of anger and hurt settles, passion ignites even hotter than before. As the end to Andre’s time at the Cape nears, reality sets in, leaving them no closer to a future than they were before. Violet and Andre are forced to dig deep to discover if they’re destined to live apart forever or if true love really can conquer all.

Review

This book is about the elusive Violet in this series. So far what we know of her is a motorcycle riding, bad ass woman who keeps everyone at a distance. I had a feeling there was so much more to her and I was right. There are so any layers to Violet and I loved uncovering each one. Don’t be surprised if she ends up being one of your favorite heroines. Andre was perfect for her. He loved Violet for exactly how she is. There were so many sweet and swoony moments in this book.

If you’ve read the other books in this series, we get to check in on all of the characters from the other books. If you haven’t, don’t worry. This is a complete stand alone and you won’t be missing out. This is was a quick fun read. It’s worth checking out.

New Release and Review: Rock Bottom Girl by Lucy Score

thumbnail_RBG ecover

Title: Rock Bottom Girl
Author: Lucy Score
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 8, 2019

Blurb

“You may be faking the relationship, but you’re not faking the orgasms.”

Downsized, broke, and dumped, 38-year-old Marley sneaks home to her childhood  bedroom in the town she couldn’t wait to escape twenty years ago. Not much has changed in Culpepper. The cool kids are still cool. Now they just own car dealerships and live in McMansions next door. Oh, and the whole town is still talking about that Homecoming she ruined her senior year.

Desperate for a new start, Marley accepts a temporary teaching position. Can the girl banned from all future Culpepper High Homecomings keep the losing-est girls soccer team in school history from killing each other and prevent carpal tunnel in a bunch of phone-clutching gym class students?

Maybe with the help of Jake Weston, high school bad boy turned sexy good guy. When the school rumor mill sends Marley to the principal’s office to sign an ethics contract, the tattooed track coach, dog dad, and teacher of the year becomes her new fake boyfriend and alibi—for a price. The Deal: He’ll teach her how to coach if she teaches him how to be in a relationship.

Who knew a fake boyfriend could deliver such real orgasms? But it’s all temporary. The guy. The job. The team. There’s too much history. Rock bottom can’t turn into a foundation for happily ever after. Can it?

Warning: Story also includes a meet-puke, a bouffanted nemesis, a yard swan and donkey basketball, a teenage-orchestrated makeover, and a fake relationship that gets a little too real between the sheets.

Review

Let’s get the basics out of the way.  This is a complete standalone and is not connected to any of her other books.  Not only will you get many laughs in this rom-com, but there are hot sexy times, and beautiful emotional moments.

Don’t let the title fool you.  Marley has not hit rock bottom, but she has been dealt with several of life’s blows and has fallen down a few rungs.  While trying to regroup she goes home to figure out her next path.  She has a great support system in her parents and her BFF Vicky (all of whom are hilarious).  As soon as she’s at home her mom gets her a job at her old high school as the girls’ soccer coach and gym teacher.  So right off the bat you she has more going for her than most.

This book will take you back to your high school days.  There is a lot of high school drama, pranks, and emotions.  I think my favorite parts of this book were when Marley was with the girls of her soccer team.  There are many moving, sweet, and hilarious moments that involve those girls.   The journey of them becoming a team was a beautiful one.  I found myself cheering for all of those girls.  Don’t worry, it’s not all about the team.  There are many hot and sexy moments with Jake.  I loved how sweet and supportive he was of Marley.  There were some serious swooning happening when Jake was working with the kids.  There’s something about a confident male inspiring teens that has me head over heels.

As with all of this author’s books, you get hilarious antics, amazing and wonderful secondary characters, and steamy sexy times.  I’ve been reading this author since her very first book was published and is one of the top three authors that I always recommend.  I will always tell everyone to go read this author.  On a personal note, I had a hard time connecting with this book. I found myself invested more in the team and Jake’s story than I did Marley’s.  This book is solidly written and well crafted.  If you are looking for a sports, second-chance, rom-com with a heavy dose of high school memories then check out this book.

New Release and Review: Maybe Later by Claudia Burgoa

Title: Maybe Later
Author: Claudia Burgoa
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 7, 2019
Blurb
My personal assistant—a.k.a. half my brain—has abandoned me to have a baby. Alright, alright, I’m not a total jerk, but the temporary virtual assistant Carla left in her place is driving me crazy.
I’ve repeatedly refused to fill out Amy Walker’s way-too-friendly questionnaire. But somehow, she ninjas me into giving up details about my private life—all while suffering her oh-so-subtle jabs at my likes, dislikes, even my system for running my business.
I don’t care what she heard, I am not a problem child. I just know what’s tried and true.
At first, her feel-good P.S. quotes sounded more like B.S. Yet our emails and texts gradually take on a new dimension, and I find myself thinking of her as something I haven’t cultivated in a long time. A friend.
Maybe she’s right. It’s time I get a life. Starting with stepping out from behind the screen and putting my feelings on the line. I’ll never know unless I try.
Note: Contains a grumpy, workaholic tech CEO with a guarded heart, and a virtual assistant whose skills border on diabolical. Also, two cats named Ramen and Sushi.
Review

If you are looking for a book that is a little different then look no further.  Sometimes I feel like I read the same story over and over.  This is not the case with this book.  It was such a refreshing change of pace from most romance stories.  It’s a story of knowing someone without ever meeting and meeting someone and not ever knowing them.  Both of these characters are so complex and so intriguing.   I was hooked from the very beginning.  There is such an emphasis on communication and not the physical in a relationship.  Their communication just draws you into the story.  I found myself excited about what would happen next. 

This book is classified as a romantic comedy.  It is funny, but I also found myself going through a roller coaster of emotions.  This book and these characters took such a raw, beautiful and winding journey.  I was very glad I was along for the ride.  This is the very first book I’ve ever read from this author and because of this book it will not be my last.  You definitely need to read this book.

New Release and Review: Flirting with the Frenemy by Pippa Grant

Title: Flirting with the Frenemy
Author: Pippa Grant

Genre: Sexy Romantic Comedy
 Release Date: March 1, 2019

Blurb
Mission: Survive my best friend’s wedding, where I must play nice with my ex and his perfect new girlfriend. 
Strategy: Bring the hottest fake boyfriend on the planet.
Target: Grady Rock. Master Baker. Dimples. Muscles. The unicorn of fake boyfriends.
Complication: Wyatt Morgan. My brother’s best friend. My sworn enemy. Military man. Sexy as hell single dad. The man I let into my panties for one night of hot hate sex after my ex dumped me before my life fell apart. 
And the man who just scared off that perfect fake boyfriend.
By pretending to be my real boyfriend.
I can roll with this though. What’s the harm in Flirting with the Frenemy if it helps me get the job done?
Complete my mission and move on.
Or so I thought.
Until Wyatt kisses me again and I start feeling things
I shouldn’t.
The thing about weddings…nothing ever goes as planned.
Flirting with the Frenemy is a rollicking fun romantic comedy featuring a single dad military man, an irritatingly attractive blast from his past, pirates, cursing parrots, and a wedding gone wild. It stands alone with no cheating or cliffhangers.
Review

If you have been reading my blog or any of my reviews for a while you know that I’m a HUGE fan of Pippa Grant.  Her over the top, ridiculous humor is so refreshing to me.  I will always tell you to go one-click her books immediately.  This book is no exception.

This book is a little different than the other books that this author has written.  I found this book not as outrageous or ridiculous as her previous books.  But don’t get me wrong, it is still hilarious and rom-com at its finest!  You get plenty of crazy antics and witty dialogue, it’s just a little different…good different.  So if you have read some of her other books and didn’t like them, then try this one for a little tamer story.

In this book you get brother’s best friend and an enemy to lover tropes all wrapped up into one.  Throw in a hero who is a single dad with a cute kid, a heroine who is sassy and strong, and chemistry that is off the charts, and you get a rom-com that in a class of it’s own.  This book will just make you feel good while reading it and long after.   It’s a quick, fun read and I cannot recommend it enough.  Don’t even think about it…one-click this book and all of Pippa Grant’s books as fast as possible.
