The Shaadi Set-Up by Lillie Vale

In this witty and heartfelt rom-com debut for fans of Jasmine Guillory, Emily Henry, and Tessa Bailey, an Indian American woman signs herself and her boyfriend up for a matchmaking site to prove they’re a perfect match, only to be paired with her ex instead.

High school sweethearts Rita Chitniss and Milan Rao were the golden couple, until the day he broke her heart. Now, six years later, Rita has turned her passion for furniture restoration into a career and has an almost-perfect boyfriend, Neil. The last thing she needs is for Milan to re-enter her life, but that’s exactly what happens when her mother, an unfailing believer in second chances, sets them up. Milan is just as charming, cocky, and confident as he was back in school. Only this time, he actually needs her business expertise, not her heart, to flip a hard-to-sell house for his realty agency.

While Rita begrudgingly agrees to help, she’s not taking any risks. To prove she’s definitely over him, she signs herself and Neil up on MyShaadi.com, a Desi matchmaking site famous for its success stories and trustworthy enough to convince everyone that she and Neil are the new and improved couple. Instead, she’s shocked when MyShaadi’s perfect match for her isn’t Neil…it’s Milan. Ignoring the website and her mother is one thing, but ignoring Milan proves much more difficult, especially when she promises to help him renovate the beach house of her dreams. And as the two of them dive deeper into work—and their pasts—Rita begins to wonder if maybe her match wasn’t so wrong after all….

Hana’s Review

– 4 stars

– diverse characters

– second chance romance

– slow burn/closed door

 

I am complete sucker for a second chance romance. Throw in the fun, quirky, diverse group of characters, and some adorable pups found in The Shaadi Set-Up by Lillie Vale and I am SOLD!

Granted, I truly do enjoy more explicit romances and smut, to be frank. However, this slow burn, closed door romance is just so well written and enjoyable, that the minor steamy foreplay worked for me. I fell for these characters and for their love story and was truly invested. Vale’s prose is engaging and colorful, she brings everything to life. I can see and taste everything she describes – I need to make those paneer tacos ASAP, honestly. Aji verde!!

Rita is our lovely heroine, making her living restoring furniture and enjoying her life with her boyfriend Neil. Except for the part where he keeps wanting to tell their traditional Indian parents about their relationship. Rita isn’t looking for forever or complications and doesn’t want to open up the can o’ worms that is the history of their parents’ relationships. She enlists Neil in a plan she has to use the Indian dating site, MyShaadi, to somehow tell their parents of their relationship and get them to be ok with their dating. It’s a crazy and convoluted plan that, of course, doesn’t actually go as planned.

In the meantime, the one that broke Rita’s heart, Milan Rao, comes back into her life through the loving meddling of their moms. Milan is her childhood sweetheart, the one she thought was her forever, who broke her heart in the most hurtful of ways. And, at first, she wants no part of having him back in her life. But love endures, right?

What follows is a wonderful story of finding each other again. Old miscommunications uncovered, old love re-ignited and the strength to fight for what they love is finally found.

I did feel that the ending dragged a wee bit but still got to their happily ever after. I truly loved this read and finished it within a day.

Thanks to NetGalley and and Penguin Group Putnam for the early digital ARC in exchange for a review.

Where Good Girls Go To Die (The Good Girls Series #1) by Holly Renee

It was a bad idea from the beginning.

He was my brother’s best friend and the definition of unavailable.

But I didn’t care. I had loved him for as long as I could remember.

He was worth the risk. He was worth everything.

But then he broke my heart as easily as I fell for him.

He watched me fall, spiraling out of control, and as I reached for him, he wasn’t there to catch me.

So I ran.

Four years later, I never expected to see him again.

He was still my brother’s best friend, and he was more unavailable than ever.

He looked every bit the bad boy I knew he was, covered in tattoos and a crooked smile.

Guarding my heart from him was top priority because Parker James was where good girls go to die.

Unfortunately for him, I wasn’t a good girl anymore.

Man this book was good. I started it not knowing what I would go into because this was a pick for our July reading book club for BABE 2023. But chapter 1 had me dying and see what angst I would be in for.

I was scared because I felt deep with this one… Livy has been in love with Parker, her brother’s best friend since she was little. At one point he confessed his love but managed to break her heart the next day. She fled her old life and now she’s in no position but to return and accept Parker is getting married.

Let me tell you the struggle is REAL. The pull and the heartburn made me ache for these two and my emotions were all over the place. It felt good and bad and I wanted their HEA with any price and I’m happy the author delivered.

Falling Into Forever (Singletree Book 5) by Delancey Stewart

I had it all. Killer job, to-die-for apartment overlooking the Hudson, and the successful, doting boyfriend.

Well, he was successful, at least. Guys who dote don’t break up with you via Post-It.

After that, I did the one thing I swore I’d never do. I went home to the smallest small town there is—a place so backward my family was still engaging in a hundreds-of-years-old feud with the Tuckers. Maybe it had evolved from the days of shooting one another to slightly more benign things, like filling family stores with crickets and moving a two-ton moose around town. But still.

This was not NYC.

It was meant to be a stop-over. But when a little old lady died suddenly and left her dilapidated haunted house to me, things got complicated. Because she didn’t just leave the house to me. She left it to me and Michael Tucker jointly.

Because who doesn’t want to live in a haunted house with their sworn enemy?

Only I’m not sure Michael Tucker is my enemy. In fact, he’s turning out to be kind of… hot. In a strong single dad kind of way.

And I’m not sure how much I really want to get back to New York City, anyway.

Falling into Forever is the fifth book in Delancey Stewart’s Singletree – a series of interconnected stand-alone romcoms that will charm you and make you swoon. It’s a book about haunted houses, making choices, and re-thinking the things we’ve been told about other people all our lives.

Excerpt Falling Into Forever by Delancey Stewart

I held the glass door open for my son, and together we climbed the stairs just inside the small entryway. When we reached the landing, I was surprised to find Addison Tanner standing just outside the suite we were looking for, looking a tiny bit lost. She wore slim jeans with a longer shirt, and something about the casual but put together look appealed to me, making me hope I looked okay. I realized it was dumb—it didn’t matter what this woman thought of me. That didn’t stop my hand from going to my hair though, hoping it wasn’t sticking up in thirty directions.
“Hi,” I said. “What are you doing here?”
Maybe asking that question wasn’t the right move. Her open expression shuttered, and her brows lowered over those dark sad eyes. Her mouth opened, but before she spoke, her eyes slid sideways to take in Daniel, and apparently she thought better of whatever she’d been about to say.
“I got a call from this guy, Anders about poor Mrs. Easter. I have a meeting with him at five.”
“Us too,” Dan volunteered.
Addison’s brows rose now, and she looked between us.
“Did you knock?” I asked.
She crossed her arms. “No, is that how these door contraptions work?”
Dan grinned, but I was not going to respond to that question. I could play the sarcasm game too, but since he was here, it was my job to model good behavior. I knocked on the door. Hard. The sound of my knuckles rapping echoed around the small space at the top of the stairs.
“Thank God you were here to take care of that. Whatever would I have done?” Addison said.
I bit my tongue, but I also had to hide a smile. I liked her fire. More than I should have.
Daniel was snickering, and I poked a finger in his shoulder to shut him up. I was about to knock again when the door behind us flew open to reveal a short round man with little round glasses perched at the end of his nose.
“Well hello there,” he said, looking between us. “I’m afraid Dr. Kelly goes home by five each day. No one home, as it were.” He chuckled and took a step back. “Just popped out to make sure you weren’t knocking on my door. I’m expecting folks.” He moved to close the door, and I was relieved when Addison piped up.
“You’re not Augustus Anders, by any chance?”
“Why yes, last I checked, I was indeed.” He smiled and dropped his eyes, rocking a bit on his feet as if he was bashful about delivering this news.
“We’re your appointment,” I told him. “You said you were in Suite 2A.”
“Oh, no. I’m in 2B.” He pointed to the clearly marked suite number on the door. He didn’t appear to be older than fifty or so, but I was starting to wonder if he might be losing a few marbles.
“I’m Addison Tanner, and this is Michael Tucker, and his . . . son?” Addie looked at me, uncertain.
“Daniel,” I confirmed. “It’s my week, so he had to come along.”
“Sorry to be such a burden,” Dan muttered.
“That isn’t what I meant, and you know it,” I told him. I could have phrased that better, but Dan knew how much I enjoyed having him.
Addie was smiling at him warmly, and even Daniel’s surly pre-teen heart seemed to feel the effects. “Nice to meet you, Dan,” she said. As my son smiled at Addison Tanner, a little twinge of admiration swelled in me for her. I liked people who spoke directly to my son instead of talking around him, like so many adults did to children.
“Well, well. Come in then,” said the lawyer. “Not sure why you didn’t just knock on my door.” He shook his head as if in disbelief at our stupidity. This was Mrs. Easter’s trusted attorney? I was becoming a little skeptical—he’d probably called the wrong people altogether. Of course Mrs. Easter did not leave anything in trust for me. She barely knew me. This guy had made a mistake—it appeared he might make them regularly.

Hook Up by M.L. Broome (The Driven World)

Greer:

Ryder Gray is a racing legend with one weak spot—me. At least that’s the line he used on me eight years ago, right before he ghosted me.

The worst part? I believed him—every sweet, romantic line. Turns out, that’s all they were.

I moved on, or so I thought, until we wind up spending a weekend together in Vegas. We’re there to celebrate my brother’s wedding, but Ryder has a different plan—to reclaim the heart he abandoned years earlier.

I’d be a fool to fall for Ryder again, so why can’t my heart tell him no?

Do I trust him, or is this another Ryder Gray hook up?

Ryder:

Since I was ten, I wanted two things from this life—a career as an F1 racer and Greer Hammond. Turns out winning championships was far easier than winning Greer’s heart.

But I’m no quitter. When I see something I want, I don’t stop until it’s mine. And Greer is the one thing I’ve wanted for twenty years.

She’s the only woman who’s ever set my heart racing, and now that she’s back in my life, I have a plan to keep her in my arms forever.

This time, she won’t get away.

This time, she’s mine.

Excerpt Hook Up by M.L. Broome

#1

With a final breath to center me, I toss my long hair over one shoulder and stride toward the group. Let the games begin. “Ryder Gray. Breaking hearts as always, I see.”
Ryder’s head flies up at the sound of my voice, a grin breaking across his features.
But it’s not the practiced smile that decorates magazine covers. It’s the goofy, crooked grin I remember from eight years ago. Ryder’s real smile.
Suddenly, I’m not feeling as confident in my quest.
Focus, Greer. Don’t let this man get the better of you again.
He meets me halfway across the parking area, wrapping his hand around my nape and pulling me to him. Without permission, he presses his mouth to mine, and my hands fly up to his chest as my heart threatens to beat out of my own.
Pulling back, those baby blues twinkle at me. “Greer Hammond. Can I just say how jealous I am of your dress tonight? It gets to touch every one of your luscious curves.”
I bristle at his well-practiced delivery. Typical playboy, figuring I’m going to melt at the feet of racing royalty.
Nice try, Ryder. I remember when you used to wet the bed.
With a chuckle that’s as fake as his smirk, I reply, “I figured you’d be jealous of my bra and g-string since they have a front-row seat to the goods.”
His eyes widen, momentarily thrown by my comeback. But he recovers quickly. “Those I plan to dispose of directly. Can’t have them crowding in on what’s mine.”

#2

“Did you really want to dance with that guy?”
“Not particularly,” I remark, glancing at the handsome gentleman across the floor.
“Do you want to dance with me?”
Moving my gaze to meet his, I capture my lower lip between my teeth, fully aware Ryder is watching my every move. “If I say yes, that makes it too easy. Women always come easy for you.”
Ryder chuckles, his lips moving against my ear. “Greer, I’ve waited twenty years for this moment. Nothing about you has been easy.”
“You weren’t waiting for me.”
He stops moving, his gaze focused on me with such intensity I fear I might melt into a puddle. “My heart was.”

Broad Daylight (Westbridge #2) by A. M. Wilson & Alex Grayson

USA Today Bestselling Authors A. M. Wilson and Alex Grayson return to Westbridge with the sequel to Pitch Dark. Detective Niko James may have found what he was looking for, but his brother Reece has no idea what’s coming for him.

Lightning never strikes twice in the same place. Or so they say…The small town of Westbridge isn’t so lucky.

When his brother’s best friend went missing eighteen years ago, Reece James swore to himself that the pain of loss would never touch him. Walls of concrete fortified his resolve, and as a grown man, he keeps to himself and works hard to earn an honest living. No wife, no kids, not even a dog to rely on him.

His quiet life is upended when strange things start happening to him. As the events escalate, he can’t continue to blame the neighborhood kids who roam freely at night. Forced to report a break in, he anticipates a swift investigation and the person responsible to be caught.

What he doesn’t expect is the woman he’s loved in secret for twenty years to return to town and lead the investigation.

His attempt to protect Dani as kids was pathetic at best, but when his stalker gets wind of a woman in his life, no matter that she’s merely investigating a case and nothing more, Reece will do anything to keep her out of harm’s way. Including sacrificing himself.

What his captor has in store will rock the very foundation Reece lives upon and will force him to face his past head on for a chance at survival.

Poor Reece has no idea what’s coming for him.

This book contains dark triggers.

Maverick (Ryder Ranch Book 3) by Anna Brooks

I was going to love her until my last breath, and she promised to do the same… but she lied.

Cricket McBride packed up without warning, ditching our small town and the life we were going to build together. She left me with tears in her eyes, a kiss on my cheek, and an empty heart that had done nothing but hardened over the years.
My life wasn’t what I thought it would be, but I’d long since accepted it for what it was. I was content with working on my family ranch and being the best father I could. And I was fine with that.

Or so I thought.

When Cricket returned, one look was all it took for me to admit I still cared, but it wasn’t until I saw the marks on her skin and the pain in her soul that I realized just how deep that love went. Because the same hands that held her tight also promised to protect her… and I never broke a promise.

Noble Neighbor by Nicole Ann Nielsen

Escaping the publicity following the murder of his wife, Oliver and his son relocate to a small town and start afresh.

He never expected to fall for another woman.

After years of moving from place to place, Sunny and her daughters finally settle on a little slice of Nebraskan soil.

Falling for her neighbor was not part of her plan.

But Oliver is hard to resist. And he’s determined to break down Sunny’s walls.

When Sunny’s past collides with her present, will she do what she’s done before — take her girls and run?

Or will she stay and fight for love?

Excerpt Noble Neighbor by Nicole Ann Nielsen

#1

With a disgruntled curse, Oliver shoved back from his desk and prowled his office. What the ever-loving hell was happening here? He’d dressed for his run, but instead of hitting the road, he’d taken position in front of his computer and started writing. The words flowed, yes, and he’d quickly reached his daily target, but …
Two-thirds into his fifth book and suddenly Dirk — a lone PI, for pity’s sake — deviated from the plot and took on a new partner. A female partner. One with pretty blue eyes and shiny brown curls, and a rounded ass he — Dirk — was dying to get his hand on.
Oliver flung open the French doors and stepped onto his veranda. “It’s all your fault,” he muttered, concentrating his gaze on the rambling house a mere half mile across the way.
Since she’d moved in twelve days ago, Sunny Jones hadn’t been far from his thoughts. And yesterday morning …

#2

“I’m going to tell Oliver everything. Today.”
Sunny ended the call, chucked the phone onto the bed, and stormed from the room before she talked herself out of her decision. A couple of minutes later, she let herself into Oliver’s home.
“Hello?” Listening, the only sound within the house was the tick-tock from the grandfather clock in the hallway. She shrugged out of her jacket and hung it on the rack before making her way to his office.
It was empty, but the aroma of a steaming mug of coffee on his desk called to her. Sunny meandered over and took a sip. One sip led to a second, and she settled into his chair, closing her chilled hands around the ceramic, figuring he wouldn’t mind if she waited.
He might object to her finishing his coffee, and the thought brought a smile to her lips. She could always offer to pay penance.
But her smile dimmed as she remembered her reason for the visit. Oliver deserved the truth before he — either of them — took that final step.
Hopefully, he would be as understanding as she reckoned. Then again, his wife was a murder victim. And taking on the Jones girls and their baggage was a huge commitment. And maybe he wasn’t the man she thought him to be.
Urgh. Stop second-guessing yourself.
She placed the mug down, accidently knocking the mouse. The monitor lit up, drawing her gaze.
Shock bulleted through her.
The words filled her vision, ricocheting in her mind.
She shook her head and read them again.

Fearless Rebel by Eden Butler

Cold.

Cruel.

Fearless.

Ed Mescal had been all those things.

None of them fit.

Rebel.

That one did.

To Piper Warren, he thought, he’d been much more.

But lies that get buried are old and ugly once they’re unearthed, something Ed’s enemies are about to discover.

Now he’s back, freed from the past and ready to reclaim the life and love stolen from him.

If he can prove that even a rebel deserves a second chance.

Revengeful Romeo by Ashley Bostock

Money doesn’t buy happiness.

Trust me, I’ve had it all my life and I have nothing.

No love. No joy. No pizzaz.

To make matters worse, my parents are pushing me to marry someone who doesn’t even give me orgasms.

Yes, it took me awhile to figure out that I needed to stand up for myself.

Which is why I was on my way to NYC—boyfriendless and out on my own for the very first time in my life.

Except when I got there, I ran in to someone I wasn’t expecting.

Holden King aka my new boss. I was hired to work directly beneath him.

Did I mention he was my ex-best friend who left me without a backward glance when I was sixteen?

I never thought I would see him again.

I tried quitting. Oh, God, how I tried. Even though I officially gave him up seven years ago, it was like he was already back in my heart.

Plus, he fueled my desire to live for myself. Hello, bucket list. It was back in business.

Only, Holden King was never crossed off my bucket list. He was still there, written in black ink, enclosed with tiny red hearts.

It was clear he had completed his bucket list.

Own a corporation. Check.
Billionaire. Check
Lamborghini. Check.

Only he added something to that list that I never would have dreamed about in a million years.

Revenge against my dad. Almost check.

Yeah, that was the part I didn’t see coming.

I’m a workaholic and proud of it. I’ve accomplished everything on my ten-year plan, except getting married before turning thirty. The problem is, I don’t believe in romance or true love anymore—but my biological clock is screaming at me. I probably shouldn’t have accepted an arranged marriage proposal, but I did, and I boarded a plane to Argentina to meet my future husband. Fate, however, had other plans. When we experienced engine trouble and had an emergency landing in Rio de Janeiro, I didn’t think things could get worse. But then I bumped into Naseem Kakos, the man who broke my heart and shattered my faith in love twelve years ago.

Naseem
Life is too damn short. In a blink of an eye, things change, or worse, tragically end—because tomorrow isn’t guaranteed. I spend my days and nights jet-setting around the world looking for my next adventure, yet when I randomly bumped into the overconfident, prideful, and absolutely gorgeous Summer Seba, I was forced to face my inner demons and the hollow shell my life had become without her in it.

But would my declaration of love be enough to keep her in my arms and stop her from marrying a stranger? Or would she deny me if I couldn’t defeat my fears of my own mortality?

The Truth About Secrets by L.P. Dover

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author L.P. Dover brings you a sexy, contemporary romance mixed with laugh-out-loud comedy about two past lovers who want nothing more than to seek revenge on the other. However, they end up getting way more than they bargained for.

Clara and Zac thought they were headed for their happily ever after, until a break-up slathered in betrayal left them both jaded and vindictive.

Twelve years have passed since they left Wyoming, and during that time Clara found her calling at a prestigious PR firm in California while Zac moved to New Orleans to join his Broussard cousins at River Enterprises. They thought they could forget each other and move on… until a local charity auction in their hometown of Snowy Creek sets Zac up for the ultimate revenge. If he wins, Clara will be at his mercy, forced to work for him for one full week. Tantalized by the sweet taste of revenge, he eagerly ups the ante to claim his prize.

But what starts out as a week of filthy manual labor and bitter rivalry leads to a shocking revelation. Someone has been plotting for over a decade to keep Clara and Zac apart. Can the pair band together to uncover who? Or will their rift from the past continue to ruin their chance at a blissful future?
