The Fourth Time Charm: A Friends to Lovers Romance (Fulton U) by Maya Hughes

ABOUT THE BOOK


“Are you sleeping with my daughter?” 

Not the question I wanted to hear from my coach. The man holding my pro future in the palm of his hand. 

The answer: No, sir.

The real answer: I’d sure as hell like to be.

Marisa’s been my best friend since third grade. And now she needs my help–and a place to stay. Senior year was supposed to be the year to keep some distance until the season finished and my draft prospects were safe. 

But resisting her is becoming impossible. Movie Thursdays under the blankets. Study sessions on my bed. Wild party nights where I kept any guy interested at bay with a single glare. 

Her dad can bench my ass for the entire season, so she’s off limits–for now. 

She’s the only woman I’ve ever loved. And one heated night, I can’t stop fighting every cell in my body and can’t stop myself from sampling her sexy smile, her sweet smell, and her sultry curves. 

We’re walking a tightrope with my future on the line. Let’s just make sure Coach doesn’t find out…

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

A Top 10 Read of 2021

The Fourth Charm by Maya Hughes is a beautifully, written best friends to lovers romance full of emotion!!!

Marisa and LJ have been friends since they were children. Each of them have offered the other a safe place when things were tough growing up. As they grew older, that bond and friendship developed into feelings that went beyond friendship. However, those few moments when they both might have felt that spark never amounted to anything more. Their time together is rapidly ending…LJ hopefully going into professional football, and Marisa going to Europe for a once in a lifetime chance internship. I could feel their chance at romance slipping through their fingers, and I was at times screaming at my Kindle for them to “wake up” and see what was right in front of them!!!!

Hughes did such a great job of giving her readers their backstory. I loved the flashbacks of their childhood together. Granted, both had things happen in their childhood that completely determined their future…Marisa had a rougher go of it. Yet, they were ALWAYS there for one another. I could see that they could have such a great future together if they could let go of the past, especially Marisa. The synopsis just scratches the surface of their relationship. There are two prominent backstories that add angst to the story…LJ’s determination of going pro and what it would mean to his family. Marisa has a whole lot of baggage to unpack. 

I have to say LJ is one of my very favorite characters. Without spoiling things, he isn’t what all the rumors swirling around campus say he is!!! He is the whole package…looks, sex appeal, and oh my goodness, his heart is made of pure gold. I just LOVED him. 

Marisa is a very complex, complicated character. I would get so MAD at her for running hot and cold with LJ, but as I got to know her, I could understand! She deserves someone who loves her, and she deserves answers from her father. 

The Fourth Charm is the first top 10 read of 2021 for me. It isn’t just your normal New Adult Romance. The story itself is complex as are the characters. It’s definitely worth reading!!!!!

Meet Maya

Maya Hughes, that’s me!, can often be found sneaking in another chapter while hiding in the bathroom from her kids! 🙂 I’m a romance writer who loves taking inspiration from everyday life, namely my husband and biggest fan. Inspiration also strikes when I hear a song, meet someone new or daydream while at soccer practice.

I love writing stories that capture the possibilities of the paths less travelled and enjoy experiencing life through my characters’ eyes.

I’m the mom of three little ones, the wife to an amazing husband and also work full time. Some of my favorite things are cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, white wine, laughing until I can’t breathe, traveling with my family and Jeff Goldblum.

New Review: Campus King by Mickey Miller

Campus King

by Mickey Miller

About the Book

Amazon Bestselling Author Mickey Miller brings you a brand new, enemies to lovers sports romance.
Colin West: Football superstar. Campus legend. My first kiss.
My first everything, actually.
And the first man I grew to hate.
And now, my roommate for senior year of college.

When a breakup leaves me without an apartment senior year, I’m forced to look for a new housing situation.
Luckily one comes up that’s affordable, in a perfect location.
There’s just one problem: it’s in the jock house.
Yeah, there’s me, the only girl, and three guys on the football team.

The other little problem?
One of those guys is Colin West, who has transferred into Greene this year.
After our high school romance, we didn’t exactly have a happy parting of ways.
Now he wants me back, but being with a guy like him is the last thing on my mind this year. Especially on the heels of a breakup.

I never thought I’d see a man like Colin fall so hard for someone.
And I certainly never thought that someone would be me.

I’ve just got to decide if the Campus King is for real, or if he just wants what he can’t have.

Campus King is an enemies-to-lovers standalone romance with an HEA.

Christie’s Review

4 STARS

Campus King by Mickey Miller is a combination of second chance and enemies to lovers romance, and it’s a quick, sweet, and sexy read!!!!

Colin and Charlotte have a past, one Charlotte thought she left in the past until she finds out he will be one of her new roommates. She attempts to convince herself that what happened with them was her senior year in high school. She only has to get through her senior year until she graduates college and is on to better things. Too bad, Colin didn’t get that memo. He wants a future with Charlotte, and when he knows what he wants, he is all in. 

I liked both characters. Each wasn’t perfect. Both had insecurities about their future together. Charlotte is afraid he will leave without warning again, and Colin is afraid of the feelings he has for her. Yet, they are both trying; therefore, there is a bit of angst. If there wasn’t, the book wouldn’t be believable. 

Miller took his time developing their new relationship. I liked the way he emphasized the friendship they had. It really added to the romance. He also added a great cast of secondary characters. Can I just say I love the fact that Charlotte’s ex wasn’t a jerk like in other books in the genre!  I’m looking forward to the next book Miller writes!
