Unspoken Words by K.M. Golland Blog Tour with Excerpt & Review

UW - BT banner

This is a story of unspoken words and how loud they can be.

Unspoken Words, “a wonderful story of first love, first heartbreak” from K.M. Golland is available now!

Unspoken Words - E-Cover

Connor Bourke and I met when we were twelve years old. He was a quiet boy with so much to say and only one way to say it—through song. He’d lost his best friend to cancer, so I showed him there was love and life in loss, and to hold on to his memories, always.

Eloise Mitchell was a blazing fire when my world turned dark. She’d shined so bright and burned so fierce that the wall I’d built around myself simply melted to the ground at her feet.

We shared everything together:

Our first kiss,

first love,

first mistake,

and first regret.

She taught me to speak,

to forgive,

and to never forget.

Through his music, he could say all he needed to say except for, ‘I love you’.

I could never tell her those three words.

Yet, I knew he meant them, that he loved me beyond all measure, beyond time

… beyond a broken heart.

I loved her more than anything.

Our bond was unbreakable.

Our love was ever after.

But, then, we tend to destroy the ones we love most.

And all bonds break, especially when the heart is what holds them together.

Danielle’s Review

4 STARS

If you want a story that will make you feel every emotion and then some, without a traditional HEA, this is the book for you. 


Meeting one summer at the age of 12, Ellie and Connor are drawn to each other like a moth to a flame. Connor had just lost his best friend to cancer and will hardly speak to anyone and Ellie is determined to help ease his pain and help him find light in the darkness. They form a friendship that summer with a bond so strong, it will never be broken. After a while, the two become more than friends and continue on together through most of high school until an argument leads to mistakes being made that this pair may not be able to come back from. 


Can these two find their way back to each other and forgive past hurts? 


I loved the bond that Connor and Ellie shared. It is truly a bond that a good romance is made of. The struggles they face and the ups and downs are realistic and heart and gut-wrenching at the same time. This was the roller coaster of all roller coasters in a book and for that, I say a job well done by KM Golland. I struggled with writing my review because while the story was beautiful, I had high hopes for a better ending. Overall, a well-written book and I am open to reading this author again.

Unspoken Words - Get burned

Excerpt

“Eloise.” Connor’s hand shot out and clasped mine. “Don’t leave.”

“Please let go. I can’t stay here right now. I need air.”

He didn’t quite chuckle but waved his hand at the space around us instead. “There’s plenty of air.”

“Yeah, but you’re stealing it,” I choked out, unable to hold back my tears. “You’re always stealing my air.”

“What are you talking about?”

“You!” I shrugged out of his clasp so that I could point my trembling finger at him. “You breathe air into me and then you steal it, and I’m left gasping. Why do you do that? Why can’t you just let me breathe with you?”

Connor’s wide eyes searched mine, darting from side to side like a ball in a pinball machine. He looked so lost and helpless, and stupid, so I elaborated. “Every second we are together, I feel alive. Every kiss, every touch, every unspoken word breathes life into me and I tether myself to it, afraid to let go. But then you refuse to tell me how you truly feel with the words you were given, words I know you can damn well say and choose not to, and it sucks that air right back out of me, and I … I can’t breathe.”

He closed his eyes, his shoulders sagging.

“Why’s it so hard for you to say?”

Connor didn’t respond. He just kept his eyes pressed shut, as if I weren’t even there, and it ripped me in two.

“JUST SAY IT,” I shouted. “Just tell me you love me. I know you do.”

“If you know I do then why do you need to hear it?”

“Because some words mean so much. Some words need to be heard and spoken.”

“Not those.”

“Of course those. They’re the most important three words anyone can say.”

“No, baby, you’re wrong.” Connor opened his eyes, grasped my arms, and pulled me to sit on his lap, securing me tightly, his finger tracing a heart over my own. “My love for you goes beyond what words can say and do, so yeah, I choose not to say them. Those three words are empty where we’re concerned.”

I sobbed. “But I need to hear them.”

“You don’t,” he whispered, pressing his palm over my heart and placing my palm over his, the pressure firm, both of our hands unmoving. “Do you feel that?”

A reverberating beat travelled through my body into his and from his into mine, our pressed hands a bridge, one beginning where one ended. We begin where we end.

What I’d written in my notebook before we made love hit me like a truck, and I jolted and gasped.

“What, Eloise? What’s wrong?”

“I get it.”

“Get what?”

“I get that you don’t want to say what you feel or that some words to you are empty. I get that, deep down, we don’t need words to prove our love, that what’s in here,” I said, massaging my fingers into his chest, “and here,” I added, twitching my other hand over my breast, “speak for us.”

A small smile crept across his face.

“But,” I continued, “words mean a lot to me. You know that. They’re not empty where I’m concerned. They could never be empty.”

He sucked in a deep breath and let it out slowly. “If you want words so desperately, I’ll give you words. But they’ll be my words. No one else’s.”

“All I’ve ever wanted was your words, Connor Burke.”

“Okay,” he said, cupping my face. “You’re. My. Ever. After.”

A tear spilled down my cheek. They weren’t the words I’d expected him to say and, yet, to him, they meant more. They meant always and forever.

They were perfect.

Sinking into his arms, I let Connor cradle me for what felt like an eternity, and I realised in that moment that an eternity with him would never be long enough, that always and forever was too short.

Too Good at Goodbyes by RC Boldt Release Blitz with Review

TGAG - RB banner.jpg

Too Good at Goodbyes, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by RC Boldt is LIVE!

COVER-TooGoodAtGoodbyes.jpg

First Top 40 hit at age seventeen? My first tabloid breakup scandal quickly followed.

Earned my first Grammy? Discovered Mommy Dearest was embezzling my money.

Landed a leading role in a movie? My fiancé called off our engagement the next day.

I might have a multi-million-dollar recording contract, a sold-out world tour, and more money in the bank than I ever imagined, but every time I hit a milestone in my career, my personal life suffers.

Then in steps my new bodyguard, rugged and with a past I connect with. The closer we get, the more powerful my feelings grow, complicating our professional relationship.

I thought Kane would be different. I hoped he’d be the one man to stand by my side, undaunted by the fame and attention that trails me.

The press calls me the “Ice Princess of Pop” because of my unyielding façade throughout heartbreak and betrayal. Perhaps it’s time to show them the real me.

With every syllable, I pour out my emotions and allow them to puddle, forming lyrics from my soul’s breath. And with each word, my broken heart cries out for Kane, begging him to help me break this pattern.

To help me stop being so d*mn good at goodbyes.

A stand-alone, contemporary romance.




 Danielle’s Review

5 STARS

Another hit from RC Boldt!!

Simone King also known as the “Ice Princess of Pop.” Living in the public eye and having multiple failed relationships, Simone has learned that there is no changing what the paparazzi believes to be true about her. But those closest to her know the truth; that she has the biggest heart of anyone they know. Simone has difficulty letting in anyone new for fear of being hurt again but sometimes that can make for a lonely existence, especially on the road all the time with her career.

Kane Windham has been trying to get his life back on track after the love of his life left him. Right after being told to take some time off from work, he gets a phone call to be a bodyguard for Simone. He has heard a lot of not so good things about her, but it’s only for a few months and then he’ll be back to his regular life. After spending some time around her, he starts to realize that not everything he has heard is true.

The more time they spend together, the closer they get. Have these two finally found a safe place to fall and open their hearts to the possibility of more? Or will this just be another goodbye?

I am a huge fan of rockstar romances but it’s not too often that the female is the rockstar. I really loved this story!! Kane and Simone are both fantastic characters and I loved seeing their relationship bloom. It was a slow burn, which is another favorite of mine. Some of the secondary characters, especially Matthias, were pretty amazing as well. I love it that I get all the feels with RC Boldt’s stories and haven’t been disappointed in a book of hers yet. RC Boldt has quickly become a favorite of mine!

Perfectly Adequate by Jewel E. Ann Blog Tour with Review and Excerpt

PA - BT banner

“Another brilliantly written winner. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up, you will not regret it.” —Kate Stewart, USA Today bestselling author

Perfectly Adequate, an all-new must-read romantic comedy from Jewel E. Ann, is available now!

PerfectlyAdequate-ebookFINAL

Dr. Elijah Hawkins needs … something.

After his wife jumps headfirst into a midlife crisis, he’s left with his young son, Roman, and a lot of unanswered questions.

That something turns out to be a someone—Dorothy Mayhem, nursing student, patient transporter, reckless driver, and emu owner.

Dorothy studies humans, the neurotypical kind, through books and television. Then she emulates their behavioral patterns to fit in with her peers.

But nothing can prepare her for Dr. Elijah Hawkins.

Single dad.

Brilliant pediatric oncologist.

And the sexiest doctor at the hospital.

When his failed attempts at asking her out turn into a string of playdates with his son, Dorothy finds herself unexpectedly enamored with the boy and his father.

And that’s a problem, a huge one, because Elijah’s ex-wife is a famous plastic surgeon—and Dorothy’s idol.

Perfectly Adequate is a beautiful, hilarious, and heart-felt journey along the “human” spectrum.

Danielle’s Review

5 STARS

Perfectly wonderful story!! Jewel E. Ann is one author you can count on every time to write amazing stories!! 

Following his divorce from his childhood sweetheart, Dr. Eli Hawkins is still trying to figure out why his marriage ended and how to co-parent his adorable son with the woman who has left his heart in shambles. It has been a long year of asking questions with no answers and going between loving and hating his ex-wife. But the day he meets the quirky patient transporter, Dorothy, he realizes that he isn’t so focused on the past.

Dorothy works as a patient transporter at a local hospital while going to school full time for nursing. She lives a very orderly life, keeping to the same schedule every week due in part to her having Autism Spectrum Disorder. When she meets Dr. Hawkins in the hospital, she feels an immediate attraction to him but knows he is the ex-husband of another doctor at the hospital who is her idol. She assumes that the hot doctor could not possibly be interested in her and so she doesn’t understand when Eli makes several attempts at asking her out for a date.

Can this unlikely couple be exactly what each other needs and find their happily ever after?

I loved this story right from the start! As a mother of a son with ASD, I had great fondness towards Dorothy and the struggles she faced with trying to understand social cues and the rigidity at times with her schedule. The relationship that blossomed between Dorothy and Roman, Eli’s son, was a beautiful thing to witness as well. This story has all the feels -funny, sweet, endearing and heartwrenching story! I highly recommend this book and all the others by this author!!

Excerpt

“You can call me Eli.”

She swallows hard. “I don’t actually think I can.”

“Why not?” I force my gaze away from her mouth.

The second our eyes meet, she averts her attention to her feet. “Because you’re half of the Hathaway-Hawkins duo.”

This is a new one to me. “I’m divorced.”

“I know. I …” She makes an attempt to look at me, but her attention shifts to my temple then maybe my ear. “I mean you’re a brilliant doctor, and Dr. Hathaway is too—so brilliant. God, she’s just phenomenal. Like there are no words. But still … you change the lives of young children. You save them. You’re what every young person entering the medical field can only dream of becoming. You’ve earned the title. I can’t call you by your name. It’s too personal. I don’t know … almost intimate.”

She has Julie on a really high pedestal. Me? Down a few pegs. Sounds about right for my life at the moment. It’s not that Julie doesn’t deserve to be on the pedestal. No matter how much I hate her, I still love her. And her skills as a pediatric plastic surgeon are unmatched. She deserves Dorothy’s admiration.

But I don’t want to talk about medicine, accolades, and saving lives. I know … I know … how terrible of me. Sorry, but I need something for myself. Something personal and maybe a little selfish.

Definitely intimate.

“I don’t need a babysitter for Roman.”

She jerks her head back, giving me her full attention, eyes squinted, gaze locked to mine. “What?”

I trap my top lip between my teeth, drowning in coconuts as my heart races, sending ample blood to all regions of my body. God … I just want—need—to kiss her.

“Oh jeez …” She shakes her head, closing her eyes for a breath. “You invited me to dinner to … flirt.” Her eyes open to their widest point.

A tiny laugh escapes me. I can’t help it. Everything about this woman feels like a rebirth. “I invited you to dinner because Roman really likes you. And I just can’t thank you enough for all that you’ve done for him. You’re so generous.”

Gah! I suck at this!

What is my problem? Yes. The answer is yes! Yes, Dorothy, I invited you over to flirt, maybe even kiss. And other things …

“Oh.” She takes a step backward, stumbling a bit as the front door catches her, and more embarrassment tints her cheeks. “Well, now I feel stupid. Yes, of course you invited me here because Roman likes me. Duh. Now I just look like an idiot for assuming you wanted to flirt with me. And really, no need to thank me. My generosity is selfish. It makes me feel good to do nice things. That’s all. And really, you’ve bought me coffee and made me dinner again. It’s like I should be thanking you again. But that’s probably weird. So … I’ll just go now.”

Really, really weird shit goes through my mind as she fidgets. Dr. Hawkins is nowhere to be found. Neither is Roman’s dad. Raging-puberty-hormones Eli Hawkins invades my head—both of them really. And I just want to kiss Dorothy. That’s the PG version of my thoughts. Most of them are R-rated. Worse than the R-rating. All I can think about are the ways Dorothy and I can be generous with each other, leading to never-ending thank-you’s that don’t involve stationary, replacement scrubs, superhero capes, pasta dinners, lunch boxes … or clothing.

“Should we call it even? No more thank-you’s,” I suggest.

“Okay.” She lifts her gaze, eyes going a little cross-eyed like her focus is centered on the bridge of my nose.

“Okay.” I release a slow breath, but it does very little to relax all of my body. “Can I ask your age?” I’m not sure why I’ve been so chicken about asking her age. I think it worries me that she’s too young, and I’ll feel like a dirty old man having really inappropriate thoughts about her.

“I’m thirty. Why?”

“You just look young.”

“I wear massive amounts of sunscreen.”

I nod slowly.

Just kiss her, you big chicken!

What if she doesn’t want to be kissed by me? Or flirt with me? I internally laugh at the memory of her comment and at myself for being just as awkward. Why does something so simple have to be so complicated?

“I have a forty-five-minute drive home.”

And school the next day. Where is my head?

Oh, that’s right …

“Of course. I’m sorry. I lost track of time.”

“Okay.” She smiles.

I love her okay’s. They feel like more than the average okay.

“I’ll walk you out.”

“Have you not closed all of your rings?” She holds up her wrist, signaling to her watch.

I chuckle. “All rings were closed hours ago.”

“We could track each other. Share our rings. Did you know that?”

Rings. Kisses. Trips to the on-call room for sex.

For the love of God … get your shit together, Elijah!

“Never mind. That’s weird.” She shakes her head, rolling her eyes at herself just before opening the door and scurrying ten steps ahead of me. Her pace gains momentum with the hill of my driveway.

My long strides catch up to her at the bottom of it. She looks both ways and bolts across the street to her car, clicks the locks, and opens her door.

“Goodnight!”

“Dorothy Mayhem … you’re killing me.”

She turns just before ducking into the driver’s seat.

“What do you mean?”

Resting my hands on my hips, I drop my chin in defeat and stare at my untied gray canvas shoes. “What if I did ask you to dinner tonight to … flirt?” I glance up, digging my teeth into my bottom lip on a slight cringe.

Her body remains stoic as her eyes shift from side to side, like she’s been caught on a hidden camera. “Well … then I wore the wrong outfit.” She refuses to look me in the eye.

“I think you look amazing.”

“Yes. But this is a playdate outfit. Maybe even one I’d wear to apply for a babysitter position. It’s fun, but wholesome. Practical and safe.”

I just want to spend one day in her head. Everything about her fascinates the hell out of me. The curiosity gives me such a high.

“Tell me about your flirting outfit.”

“Well …” She clears her throat, keeping her focus on the big hill leading out of my development. And of course … her cheeks are perfectly flushed as she talks to the wind. “Since Romeo was involved, I would have chosen my red dress with white stripes. It hits just below my knees, but it’s strapless. And I would have worn my blue cardigan with it and matching blue wedge sandals with straps that tie around my ankles. Flirty … but appropriate for young eyes.”

“And if Roman wouldn’t have been here tonight?” I stare at the side of her head, wondering if she’ll look at me again before driving home.

She narrows her eyes. “I would have taken off the cardigan after you invited me into your house.”

The picture she paints in my head does all kinds of wicked things to me. Why imagining her in a striped strapless dress has such a physical effect on me is a mystery. It’s not like she suggested showing up wearing nothing but high heels and a trench coat. Dorothy Mayhem possesses her own brand of seduction, and I’m completely entangled in every part of it.

“And in this scenario, would you have kissed me after I walked you to your car?”

She turns completely red. I feel certain even her toes hidden in those blue shoes have to be red. “You’re making fun of me.”

Her comment knocks me back a good ten steps, even if my body remains right next to her. Why would she say that?

Danielle’s Review

5 Stars

This is part 2 in Isaac and Flynn’s duet. I had forgotten how much I loved these “Two” until I read this book!!

Isaac and Flynn both love each other but when old insecurities raise their ugly head, it’s going to take both of them handling things differently than they have in the past. Their careers have them thousands of miles apart but they try to keep their connection alive and are learning to communicate their needs with each other. Isaac and Flynn had their HFN ending with One but do they have what it takes for the long haul?

I love all members of the Fox family and didn’t realize how much I had missed them until I began this book. It is so easy to fall right back in with them. Isaac and Flynn love each other and their connection is so passionate but sometimes you need more to make it last and that’s what this story is about. My only complaint about this book is that it was over too soon and now I have to wait to reconnect with this family once more! I continue to be a huge fan of ES Carter!!

About the Author:

71Wrb2dFmDL._US230_

 

USA Today Bestselling Author, ES Carter, lives in Cardiff, South Wales—the home of castles, dragons, and folklore.

Her family joke that she was born with a book in her hand, and the urge to write stories soon followed.
At eleven, she won her school’s literary prize. At ages fourteen to sixteen – her poetry phase after falling in love with Dylan Thomas and e.e. cummings – she had a few poems published, but life, love, and family overtook her dreams, and she was in her thirties when she began the scary journey of self-publishing.
Her debut and internationally best-selling series, ‘Love by Numbers’, are a set of interconnected stand-alone romances, all with varying themes of love. From second-chance to romantic comedy and M/M romance. These stories do not need to be read in order (apart from the opening duet Nineteen/Twenty One), in fact, she is often guilty of advising readers to start at the last book and work their way back through.
Contemporary romance is not the only genre she writes, her second series, ‘The Red Order’, is as dark and twisted as you can get, but there is beauty there too if you can open your eyes and look.

With many more stories bursting to be set free, she hopes you stay along for the ride.
She loves to connect with readers, so please feel free to friend/follow her on Facebook, IG, and Twitter or join her reader’s group, E’s Elite ❤

Just Love by Prescott Lane Blog Tour with Excerpt Review

Just Love - BT banner.jpg

Just Love by Prescott Lane

Release Date: July 9, 2019

Just Love Cover.jpeg

Just Love, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by Prescott Lane.

There’s two sides to every love story. The how you fell in love, and the how you fell apart.

This is ours.

The cardinal rule of friendship is you don’t mess with your friend’s sister.

That goes double when she’s his little sister.

It was just supposed to be fun.

She wasn’t supposed to end up being the love of my life.

And I definitely wasn’t supposed to break her heart.

Ainsley is a wedding dress designer. That should’ve been a warning that she’s a hopeless romantic. That should’ve clued me in that she believes love conquers all.

But there are some things that love can’t fix. I’m one of them.

She thinks love is the answer.

But love is the reason I let her go.

A stand-alone, contemporary romance.

 

Danielle’s Review

5 STARS

Another hit from Prescott Lane!! Definitely a top read of 2019!! I fell in love with this cover and then I fell in love with the story of Rhett and Ainsley.
Ainsley has had a crush on Rhett, her older brother’s best friend, for years. Now that she’s grown and settled back in town and living right downstairs from Rhett, it isn’t long before she realizes the attraction is mutual. They agree to just have a little fun and no one needs to know but they soon discover things are more than just fun. When Ainsley’s brother finds out, he isn’t happy at all but they hope he will eventually come around. Then in the blink of an eye, Ainsley and Rhett’s new-found love and happiness is shattered. Can they find their way back to each other and the love they share?
I loved the forbidden romance part of this story but this is also a second-chance romance which is also a favorite. I had no idea this story would break my heart several times but Ms. Lane does a wonderful job of putting the pieces back together. Beautiful story and I think this is my favorite book by Prescott Lane to date. She will continue to be a must read author for me!!

Excerpt:

I knew the kind of guy Rhett was. I knew serious wasn’t his thing. I knew using the word love usually sent him running for the hills. I knew it, and I did it anyway.

But he wasn’t that guy with me. He and I were different. I know he loved me.

I’ve loved that man since I was fifteen years old. How could I not? Forget the abs, the tan skin, those pale, sexy blue eyes. Forget the fact that his voice sends shivers down my spine. The first time we kissed, I felt my whole world shatter and fall into place at the same time.

I tried to pretend to be “that” girl. The kind that can kiss a guy just for fun, screw a man and not imagine a life with him. I tried. I failed. The hopeless romantic in me wasn’t having it.

My heart should’ve known better — but my heart was no match for Rhett Bennett.

When Rhett and I fell apart, I broke up with social media. I have to say, that breakup was a lot easier. No hashtags, no emojis, no memes to post. Some people use social media as their therapist. I’ve seen people post play-by-plays of their divorce, or explain every detail of their latest illness or drama. I probably could’ve attracted a lot more followers if I chronicled the demise of our relationship. It’s the stuff of soap operas.

But instead, I broke it off with Facebook, banned Instagram, and boycotted Twitter.

Today, Facebook and I are having one last romp. Relationship status update: Single.

That’s it. That one little change. I have to start somewhere. Skye’s right about that.

The one part of being single I have embraced is the diet. The single woman diet consists of basically any breakfast food for dinner, coffee, and alcohol. I’ve gotten so good at it, I no longer need a grocery cart when I shop. Quick tip, don’t get a cart at the grocery store, only buy what you can hold. It’s good for the budget and the waistline. Unfortunately, that rule doesn’t work so well at clothing stores.

New Review: One Little Lie by Whitney Barbetti

New Release: One Little Lie by Whitney Barbetti

One Little Lie by Whitney Barbetti

Genre: New Adult

Designer: Najla Qamber Designs

Blurb:

Adam Oliver hated me. Loathed my very existence. He had every right to, but that didn’t make my life any easier the afternoon I had to rescue him on the side of the road.

But worse than rescuing a guy who hated me to his core was the lie I told my parents.

Because I’d just told them that my long-term boyfriend was finally back in town.

My long-term boyfriend who didn’t actually exist.

The one named Adam Oliver—the guy I’d crushed on all through high school.

So the real Adam had no idea that he and I were engaged in a years-long, committed, serious relationship.

And, somehow, some way, I needed to convince him to play along with my one little lie.

 

Danielle’s Review

4 STARS

This is my first read by this author and I really liked it. While I have heard lots about her over the past few years, this blurb finally made me take the leap. The story starts off a little slow for me but once the story got going, I was hooked.
Hollis has had a crush on Adam for a long time even though he has never seemed to like her and now that high school is nearly over, she tries to make a connection with him at a party. She is finally breaking through the wall between them when an incident happens and Adam is back to hating Hollis. A few years later, Hollis is feeling pressure from her parents to get serious with someone and start looking towards marriage. One little lie later, Hollis needs help from Adam who is back in town after leaving right after graduation. She is able to convince him to help her but how much is that one little lie going to cost her? Will she ever be able to make Adam see she is not the enemy he believes her to be?
I really liked both characters and could see how the misunderstandings between them could happen. However, I was at times frustrated with Adam’s expectations of Hollis. I liked the ending and will definitely continue with this series with other characters to hopefully revisit Adam and Hollis to see what the future holds for them. Overall a great read and I look forward to reading more from this author!

Caulk Tease by Megan Green & Alexandria Bishop Release Blitz with Review

 

Title: Caulk Tease
Series: BrookStone Partners #1
Authors: Megan Green & Alexandria Bishop
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: June 14, 2019
Blurb
Caulk Tease /ˈkäkˌtēz/: A woman who knows her way around a power tool, and isn’t afraid to use it.
Six weeks ago I was broke, alone, and about to be homeless.

Six weeks ago I had zero intention of moving back to Winchester, Colorado—aka Mayberry on crack.

Six weeks ago a one-night stand had never crossed my mind.

Now?

I threw that all out the window for him. He’s tall, dark, and handsome—with a body made for sin. Hard, fast, and dirty bar bathroom sex has to be experienced at least once, right?

It’s only my luck he’s also my boss and best friend’s older brother.

Barrett Brooks doesn’t believe a woman belongs on a construction site, especially with his company on the line. I’ll prove him wrong—let’s just hope I don’t fall back into bed with him in the process.

Loved this story!!

Monroe has had a hard life. Almost everyone she has ever been close to has left her or passed away. When she falls on hard times, she has nowhere to turn except an old high school friend. Now, she has a job as a foreman on a construction site and a place to sleep, it might be a shady motel, but it will do until she is back on her feet.

Barrett has had a pretty easy life but he is determined to make a name for himself as one of the owners of a construction company. Things aren’t going according to plan on a major project and when his brother says he has someone that can help them out, Barrett trusts that he’s right. Barrett doesn’t know what to think of a female being a foreman on a construction job and figures this project is doomed.

Monroe is prepared to do battle with Barrett if necessary to prove herself worthy of this job. But it’s a thin line between love and hate and there is plenty of sparks between Monroe and Barrett to keep things hot! Will these two be able to work together to get the job done and come out on the other side as more than enemies?

I loved this book so much! This book has it all – fantastic main characters, lots of humor, witty banter, tons of chemistry and an all-around phenomenal story. I loved the other characters as well and can’t wait to read the next book by these 2 authors in this series!

Highly recommend!
