Faint by R.L. Kenderson (The Everyday Heroes World)

R.L. Kenderson’s Faint is a steamy, funny, melt-your-heart contemporary romance written in K. Bromberg’s Everyday Heroes World project.

An old crush and old pain. Can they move on to find love again?

Five years ago, I had a secret crush on my neighbor. The problem was that we were both in relationships. That was, until I caught my boyfriend and his girlfriend in bed together.

Liam left his girlfriend, and I moved out, moved away, and moved on from my boyfriend without ever telling Liam how I felt. The pain was too much for both of us.

I never expected to see my old crush again after so many years. And I certainly never expected him to see me naked.

Getting over my embarrassment is just the first hurdle I must clear because my feelings for Liam are back and stronger than ever. But can I look at him and not remember my past? More importantly, can he look at me and not see his?

Stella Brooks is a woman who knows what she wants. From her first glimpse of Paris Fashion Week at the tender age of eleven, she has only ever wanted to be a designer. Hardworking and dedicated, she knows she can make a success of it. Until…she is driven to trade fashion for frosting, a move that makes her soul sing but shakes her confidence in her decision-making to her core.
And when you add in that her sexy hookup from her older brother’s wedding is sniffing around again, things are about to get out of hand. Wesley McMillan seems different, no longer putting off love-’em-and-leave-’em vibes, which only adds to Stella’s emotional chaos.
Wesley McMillan has had a thing for Stella since she first served him a fried pickle platter at her mom’s restaurant. He may have only ordered a snack, but he found he wanted a whole meal—in the form of Stella Brooks. How could he not? She’s stunning, smart, and confident. She knows her worth and what she wants, and she owns whatever room she’s in, the ultimate turn-on for him.

As for the second…Wes doesn’t blame Stella for her assumption. He used to love to play the field, but now that he has his demons under control, he is ready to show her and the world that he is worthy of her love.

Wild Ride (Wilde Horse Ranch Book 2) by Kim Loraine

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas…

Unless that includes waking up married, tattooed, and in bed with a reality TV star. Marrying the woman of my dreams shouldn’t be an issue, right? But it’s a huge problem since my wife belongs on the other side of the long-running feud between the Ryker and the Wilde families.

Yes, TV viewers around the world, I’m Sutton Wilde and my new bride is none other than Sera Ryker.

Oops.

The easy solution is to get a quickie divorce and move on…until the video of our wedding pops up all over social media the next day. Time for plan B — stay married for thirty days to satisfy her TV contract and prevent a PR nightmare.

Trouble is, I’ve carried a torch for Sera Ryker for a long time, and she doesn’t want to have anything to do with me. Guess that means I have thirty days to make my wife fall in love with me.

Game on.

I wanted something sweet and light because I was in between dark books. Got this as a freebie and picked it up right away. It had a favorable trope for me, I love accidentally married in Vegas so I had a winner.

Southern romance makes me think of Gone with the Wind and it always plasters a smile on my face. There is something good with reading a book with cowboys in it.

Truth be told, this is the first book I am reading from this author and even though it’s the second book in the series, you can read it as a standalone. It didn’t bother me in the least that I know nothing more of the world of the main character’s siblings from previous books.

There is a long-lasting feud between Sera’s family and Sutton’s and both have to struggle with their faith in each other. This is a sweet romance book and perfect for a light read. The fact that they both end up married and live streaming the whole thing on social media makes their plan for annulment a bust.

Sera is known for her family’s reality show and Sutton’s grandfather a well know actor. They know how much a reputation can cost their family so they agree to stay married for 30 days.

Can Sutton make Sera realize they can be good together?

My Enemy Next Door by Whitney G. & Nicole London

“Give it to me harder.” “Ohhhhh, yes, Baby!” “I’m about to come…”

No, these aren’t the lines from a porno script. These are the loud moans that are currently coming through my neighbor’s wall. (I’ve even heard her say “Oh Daddyyyy!” a time or two, but no judgement.)

Since moving to New York and taking a job at a new firm, I haven’t had a good night’s sleep thanks to my neighbor’s “sexcapades.”

What the hell is she doing over there?

If that wasn’t bad enough, the woman I’ve always wanted in college also works at this firm, but she makes my days difficult since she still considers me to be an “enemy” and refuses to talk to me.

It’s not until I confront my neighbor about her moans that I realize that they’re the same person.

And she’s been keeping a dirty, audiobook narrator secret…

My Enemy Next Door is a super fun, contemporary novella about two former college “enemies.”

It is best read and experienced over a cup of coffee.

Forever After All by Kaylee Ryan

McKenna

I’ve always had a thing for my best friend’s older brother. In fact, I’ve been planning our wedding since elementary school. Then I grew up, moved away, and studying, and law school became my only focus.

Now that I’m back, the sexy cowboy is everywhere I turn. I shouldn’t mind so much as Rip Callahan is all levels of fine. My problem? His presence… his attention is sending me in a spin. And our reconnection? It’s fast and intense and everything I’ve ever dreamed of.

So why am I getting in my own way?

Rip

I didn’t know the first kiss I ever had would still play on my mind over ten years later. But with beauty and brains, McKenna Dawson is under my skin and very much off-limits.

Crushing on my sister’s best friend isn’t the worst part. That connection? I can’t ignore it. Should I fight it? Probably. Do I want to? Absolutely not.

A challenge among friends is all it takes for me to know she’s what I’ve been missing. That and one incredible trip with those same friends means there’s no going back. Not for me.

It was only supposed to be a weekend, but maybe we were meant to be forever after all.

Camden Walker (The Wreck Me Series) by Aly Stiles

An emotional, slow burn contemporary romance that can be read as a standalone.

Damaged.
Drifter.
Genius.
After surviving severe trauma, Camden Walker has spent his life being trapped by labels. Now, at age twenty-seven, he’s fine being the gifted artist not wired for a world that’s left him scarred. All he wants is to break free and find the beauty that’s been stolen from him.

Smart.
Successful.
Painfully ordinary.
Olivia Price is used to being invisible and living in the shadow of her younger sibling. The fact that Olivia is secretly in love with her sister’s boyfriend is just another example of craving what Claire takes for granted.

But when Claire dumps Camden without a thought, Olivia can’t let go of the haunted green eyes she’s loved for so long—especially when they finally see her too.

Because maybe it takes the one not wired for this world to appreciate the one who’s been ignored by it.

And maybe it takes the only person who’s ever understood the wounded artist to show him he’s as radiant as his art.

I’ve been infatuated with Silas Prescott for the longest time.

Sure, he doesn’t know I’m alive as he walks past me without looking up from his phone. But, it’s not like I ever thought he would notice me, or anyone else for that matter. All he cares about is work.

That is, until he needs a date and his sister insists I should play his fake girlfriend. And not just for a date, but a whole weekend, staying in the same room, lying to all of their friends and family. But I’m desperately in need of money and I can handle a weekend pretending to be a billionaire’s plaything.

Only…it’s hard to remember it’s only fake when he acts like a possessive jerk, or when he tells me I’m beautiful, or when I’m in his arms.

But I have to remember it’s not real because falling for my fake boyfriend would be a mistake. There is only one thing Silas Prescott cares about and that’s work.

Author Note: This relationship might start out fake, but it doesn’t stay that way for long. Along the way there’s a dressing room incident, dancing, and a Momzilla who wants nothing more than to have her kids happily married. Don’t worry, our hero and heroine get their happily ever after.

WRONG FOR ME by Meagan Brandy

They say to keep your enemies close, but they never had to deal with the likes of Alec Daniels, the broody bad boy next door who loved to make my life a living nightmare…up until the day he disappeared.
See, Alec was a thief.
He stole my happy.
My sanity.
My first kiss.
I told myself I was glad the day he went away, and I’m reminded of why not five minutes after his sudden and unexpected return.
Now he stands before me with a heavy glare and hard body.
But those greedy green eyes, they’re darker than I remember, and brimming with a secret…
A secret I didn’t discover until it was far too late.
Because this time, he didn’t steal a simple kiss.
This time… Alec Daniels stole my all.
*Wrong for Me is a full-length standalone with no cliffhanger and an HEA. Previously titled The Wrong Blaze, this is the same epic love story with a fresh new look and title!

This is one of the books I have kept for me to read when I couldn’t find anything to catch my eye. I knew I would enjoy it so this was my main reason to delay.

Of course I loved it. Meagan Brandy writes books I love and enjoy with characters so powerful that resonates to me. Her heroes love so deeply that you can’t help but share their emotions. You feel deep in your bones the desperation of a man that can’t leave with the love of his life.

This book was previously known as The Wrong Blaze so only the name and the cover has changed.

Wrong For Me is a standalone and will make you fall in love but cut you deep when secrets come out. Typically to Meagan Brandy if you’ve read her before.

Alec Daniels has been in love with Oakley since they were kids, but she had her eyes on his brother. The fact that Alec knew with his whole being that she was meant for him, he waited and watched her every move. Oakley is now grown up and Alec comes back. But he is older too and with more secrets she is ready to face.

There is a scene people might say it’s not for them.. I won’t give spoilers but from my point of view there is no cheating… just circumstances that might seem so.

Tailspin by Anna Paige (The Driven World)

Tailspin is a sexy, swoon-worthy contemporary romance novel written in K. Bromberg’s Driven World Project.

Aidan

When I left Harrington Heights, I vowed never to return.
In the years that followed, I built not one empire but two.
Aidan Wright no longer existed.
Now, I was Aidan Decker.
Finance mogul. Race team owner.
I had the world at my feet.
I should have been happy.
Or, if not happy, at least content.
But I was neither.
What was worse; I had no idea what to do to fix it.
Not until an old friend talked me into coming dangerously close to the hometown I despised to celebrate his upcoming nuptials.
A bachelor party.
At a gentleman’s club.
And who should appear onstage but the only girl I’d ever loved.
The girl I couldn’t bear to hold back because I knew she was destined for so much more than “The Heights” had to offer.
More than I had to offer back then.
The girl who’d long ago abandoned this place to chase her dreams of starring on Broadway.
Dreams changed; I knew that better than anyone.
But there was one dream I’d held tight to since I was fourteen.
And it was right in front of me for the first time in a decade.
I wasn’t about to let her go a second time.

Kinlee

Aidan Decker.
Everyone knew the name.
Even I knew it, if only in passing.
But until I strolled into the club that night, I had no idea that Aidan Decker was Aidan Wright.
My Aidan.
My best friend growing up.
The one who bid me goodbye on graduation day with a single, sweet kiss and a promise I never forgot.
Not even after ten years apart.
Unfortunately, we were completely different people now.
Maybe all that had changed about him was his name.
But my whole world imploded and the girl he knew was long gone.
The friend he’d shared his dreams with was living in a nightmare, one to which he didn’t deserve to be exposed.
All that was left was pain and fear and the will to survive.
There was no way I could let Aidan back in.
No matter how much I wanted to.
We might have been in the same room for the first time in years, but we were still worlds apart.

The Sophomore (College Years #2) by Monica Murphy

Jackson Rivers.

My not so secret crush.

He’s popular. Gorgeous. Talented.

Also my biggest weakness.

I’ve stood by him for years. Been a friend every time he needed one, but he doesn’t see me. Not like I want him to.

Move on, my friends said. Find someone new. Someone who sees your worth. Someone who gets you. I know they’re right. I’m only a friend to him. He’s never going to see me like I see him. So I take their advice, and try to move on.

But Jackson is always right there. In my face. Running to my rescue. And when I meet someone else, Jackson isn’t having it. For some reason, he’s suddenly determined to stay in my life. Right by my side.

Now he says he wants me, but does he want an actual relationship? Or is that he can’t stand the thought of losing me to another guy?

It’s time to find out what Jackson truly wants…and I’m going to make him work for it.

Tie Me Down (Bellamy Creek Series Book 4) by Melanie Harlow

Just friends.
That’s all Beckett Weaver and I have ever been.
Sure, he’s a hot cowboy who left Wall Street behind to take over his family’s ranch. Yes, I’ve had a secret crush on him since we were seventeen. And who wouldn’t appreciate those strong hands, that massive chest, and the way he fills out a pair of Levis?
He makes a girl sweat just looking at him . . . and I look. A lot.

But I’m a single mom trying to move on with my life, and he’s running that ranch single-handedly while taking care of his elderly father. We don’t even live in the same state. I only returned to my hometown of Bellamy Creek to sell my late mother’s house, and he just invited me and my son to stay with him because he’s got a big heart.

That’s not the only big thing he’s got–which I discover the night I finally sneak across the hall to his bedroom and shed my inhibitions right alongside my pajamas. And once we give into each other, we can’t stop.

The hayloft. The bed of his truck. The dock by the pond.

Nothing has ever felt so right, but his past has taught him not to believe in happily ever after, and every perfect night I spend in his arms brings us closer to goodbye.

Like any cowboy, he’s good with a rope and knows exactly how to tie me up.

But what if I want him to tie me down?

Wild for You by Amanda Bailey

Fireflies, night swimming, and falling for my best friend.

He’s all I ever wanted—all I thought I’d ever need.

Hearing he didn’t feel the same gutted me.

And when he left, he took my whole heart with him.

Six years later, he finds me and turns my quiet life upside down.

He convinces me to go back to the lake—where it all started.

Where we’ll get a whole new beginning …

And say a final goodbye.

Kassie’s Review:

Wild for You is a spin-off to the Flirting with Forever series and it made for a perfect little addition.
Willow made her appearance in Fight for You as Sawyers roommate and she was such a fun side character.
I’m glad she got her own book with her own happy ending. Willow and Mav’s friends-to-lovers romance with your small dose of drama was perfect. I loved all their childhood memories coming up. Such a sweet and beautiful story but of course with some spice.
I loved getting a little more of Hadleigh, Sawyer, Maddison, and Shawn.
The girls doing karaoke and Sawyers karaoke trivia, perfection! There’s a lot to make you smile in this book but there’s also some emotional parts that made this story even more beautiful.
As always, this book can be a stand-alone but the Flirting with Forever series as a whole is really great!
