Eve’s face flashed on the screen, and I swiped to answer.

“Give me all the details.”

I shook my head repeatedly, even though she couldn’t see me. “It was horrible.”

“What happened? What did the bastard do to you? I’ll cut his balls off.”

Eve’s response made me smile for the first time since I’d laid eyes on my date. “No. It wasn’t that kind of horrible. He was a perfect gentleman.”

“Okay…”

“Very sweet and funny, too.”

“Sounds awful,” she said sarcastically.

“And gorgeous.”

“The balls on him.”

“That’s not the worst part.”

“Let’s see…he’s young, gorgeous, sweet, and funny. What could be worse than that? He’s hung like a horse?”

“I wouldn’t know. And you know why I don’t know that?”

“Because you’re an uptight prude who hasn’t been laid in years?”

“That might be true. But the larger problem is that he is one of Ryan’s friends.”

Eve cackled. “That’s not a problem, that’s fantastic! Bang his brains out and send him to play golf with your ex. Let him eat his heart out when he realizes what he lost.”

“Ummm…Eve, I wasn’t talking about my ex, Ryan. I was talking about my son.”

“I’ll be over in twenty minutes.”

The Marriage Pact by Winter Renshaw ~ Blog Tour w/ Review & Excerpt!

IMG_1629

IMG_1248

Synopsis

I was sixteen when I vowed I would never marry him.

We shook on it. Pinky swore. Even put it in writing and all but signed our names in blood.

It was the one and only thing we ever agreed on.

To the world, he’s Prince Ian, Duke of Montcroix, second in line to the Chamont throne. Panty-melting accent. Royal charm. Hypnotic presence. Blindingly gorgeous. Laundry list of women all over the world who would give their first born for the chance to marry him. Most eligible bachelor in the free world …

But to me, he’s nothing more than the son of my father’s best friend—the pesky blue-eyed boy who made it his mission to annoy the ever-loving hell out of me summer after summer as our families vacationed together, our parents oblivious to our mutual disdain as they joked about our “betrothal.”

He was also my first kiss.

And my first taste of heartbreak so cataclysmic it almost broke me.

I meant it with every fiber of my soul when I swore I’d never marry him.

But on the eve of my 24th birthday, His Royal Highness has the audacity to show up at my door after years of silence and make a demand will forever change the trajectory of our lives: “We have to break our pact.”

Emilie and Julian’s fathers were best friends and their families spent their summers together growing up, but the two of them haven’t seen or spoken to each other in eight years. Not since the day he disappeared after breaking her sixteen year old heart. So why is Prince Julian, Duke of Montcroix, showing up in North Carolina at her doorstep at one in the morning asking to break the pact they made as kids all those summers ago?

“The man didn’t shatter my heart that summer, he obliterated it. It took me years to piece it back together and even then, it was never fully right after that. Never quite whole.”

Ok so Julian needs a wife asap so his Country’s monarch doesn’t fall apart. He wants Emilie to agree to pack up her life in North Carolina and fly to Montcroix to become the next Queen. I mean that’s not asking much from the girl who’s heart you broke, is it? Oh, did I forget to mention Julian is super hot and can any wife he wants but only wants Emilie? Her first reaction is a hell no. Can’t really blame the girl but then Julian sweetens the pot so to speak. She’s suddenly agreeing to the terms he lays out, changing her answer and finding herself on a plane headed into an unknown future.

“You’re the only one I trust. And the only one I want. And my people will adore you, just as I once did. Just as I still do.”

These two are dealing with some unresolved feelings and things are a little rough as Emilie gets accustomed to the royal lifestyle. But it becomes clear pretty quickly that they both still love each other after all these years but think they were betrayed by the other. When secrets are revealed and some drama is thrown in the mix, will there be a royal wedding or another broken heart?

“I loved her then. I love her still.”

I love the whole prince/princess falls in love with a non-royal type of book so this blurb really sucked me in and Winter Renshaw always delivers a great read. While this one was good, it wasn’t one of my favorites. I had a bit of a hard time feeling the connection between Julian and Emilie. Sometimes I just didn’t see it and I guess I wanted more drama. I love a good twist in a book but there was one during the second half that just didn’t make sense or fit and honestly sort of threw the whole book off for me a little. It was a quick read and was good but unfortunately not a favorite. I am looking forward to more books from this author in the future.

Excerpt

“Ms. Belleseau,” he says before moving aside. “Welcome. Won’t you come in?”

Her eyes lift across the small space until they find mine, and her hands clasp in front of her waist. She’s in jean shorts, a white tank top, sandals, and a wildly colorful cardigan. Her long hair is piled on top of her head—hardly the look of a queen, but I like it nonetheless.

My all-American sweetheart …

“I’ll do it,” she says as Harrison locks the door behind her. Emelie takes a few more steps closer, until we’re only a few feet apart. “But I have terms and conditions.”

“Such as?”

“No sex,” she says.

I hide my disappointment with a smirk. “Glad we’re getting that one out of the way. What else?”

“No romance.”

“Easy.”

“Limited public engagements,” she adds.

“I’m afraid that one isn’t up for negotiation,” I say. “But you’ll be pleased to know that we aren’t allowed to demonstrate any public displays of affection, so any and all public engagements will require nothing more than a smile, a curtsy, and a few kind words.”

“Fine.” Her arms fold across her chest, like she still isn’t comfortable with the idea of this arrangement. “You get me until my twenty-ninth birthday and not a day longer.”

“Deal.”

“Oh. And I’m allowed to see my family at any chosen time, regardless of schedule or engagements,” she says.

I hesitate—logistics and all of that.

“That’s my non-negotiable,” she says. “My mother and my sisters are my everything. If I want to see them, you’re going to make it happen or the deal is off. And my friends too. I want my friends to be able to visit.”

That’s her non-negotiable? I figured it would’ve been the sex …

“All right,” I say. “Shall we pinky swear on this as we did with our last agreement?”

She fights a smile—a good sign—but her poker face returns in an instant, rendering her back to unreadable.

“You have my word if I have yours,” she says, not moving so much as an inch closer. Her chin lifts and her shoulders straighten as she looks me dead in the eye. I can’t tell if she’s feeling good about her decision or giving me her best poker face.

“Apparently pinky promises aren’t as binding as we thought now, are they?”

My joke falls on deaf ears. She isn’t amused.

Her arms lower to her sides, as though she’s feeling slightly less defensive than when she first walked in the door.

“You’re going to make an amazing queen, Emelie,” I say, envisioning her in my great-grandmother’s glimmering Belcast tiara. “Welcome to the royal family.”

Caroline Abbott loves her job—helping engaged couples pick out the perfect save the date cards and invitations for their dream wedding. Working at Noteworthy means she has to deal with the occasional bridezilla, but Caroline’s always up for the challenge.

Until one particular bridezilla walks into the stationery store who’s fiancé happens to be the boy Caroline shared her first kiss with. Alexander Wilder is all grown up now, helping run his family’s successful luxury hotel chain, and is somehow even better looking than she remembers.

Caroline works in an upscale stationary store that specializes in all things wedding related. So when a bridezilla comes in with her workaholic “I’d rather be on my phone than looking at save the date cards” fiancé Caroline realizes she knows him. Yes, he is the same hot stranger she bumped into at her favorite coffee shop and sort of flirted with that same morning but that’s not it. He also happens to be her childhood crush and the boy she shared her first kiss with.

“His voice is deep. Rich. His face…vaguely familiar?”

Alex definitely didn’t expect to run into Caroline, his old best friend’s little sister who also happens to be his first kiss. Yet here she was helping him and his fiancé prep for a wedding he really has no interest in. But what happens when Caroline sees his fiancé Tiffany with another man and he is suddenly no longer engaged? Does that mean it’s suddenly ok for him to act on the feelings he has towards Caroline? She is asking herself the same questions since as soon as these two meet up after all those years apart sparks are flying everywhere. Their connection is almost instant and I love how they just fit together, like it was always supposed to be this way. But is it too soon after his broken engagement and is there a reason Caroline shouldn’t trust Alex or will they take a chance at love?

“I want to take a chance on you, Caroline.”

I really enjoyed Caroline and Alex’s journey and there were also some great secondary characters that I have the suspicion may just get their own stories, or at least I hope. So if you’re in the mood for a cute and quick summer read this might be the book for you.

“This is going to be the start of something good, Caroline. I can feel it.”

Excerpt

I head straight for the pickup counter, where I see my skinny vanilla latte waiting for me, my name written on the side of the cup in Stella’s familiar scrawl. Without hesitation I grab it, inhaling deeply before I take a sip. Just a tiny sip so I can savor it. I close my eyes for a second, maybe two, and when I open them, I find a guy standing there.

Watching me.

And he’s not just any guy. He’s cute. Wait, no. Not cute. He’s…hot. Dark hair. Blue eyes. Wearing a suit that fits him perfectly. I know just from looking at the fabric that it’s custom. Expensive.

He’s smiling at me. And I’m scowling at him in return because the caffeine hasn’t quite hit my bloodstream yet, so I’m not on top of my game.

“You looked like you were having a moment.” His voice is deep. Rich. His face…vaguely familiar?

I stand a little straighter. Take another sip of my coffee as I contemplate the man in front of me, because for some reason I still can’t come up with anything to say.

Listen, I always have something to say. But this guy. This gorgeous, well-dressed maybe-stranger, is leaving me a little…

Dumbstruck?

Huh.

“That moment you were just having. With your coffee,” he continues, gesturing at the cup I’m clutching in both of my hands, like it’s my baby. Which this morning—every morning—it is.

“She loves coffee,” Stella says from behind me.

Glancing over my shoulder, I give her a look, one that says shush.

“I can see that.” The amusement in his voice is obvious. He thinks it’s funny. The sacred moment I was having with my latte made him smile.

I wouldn’t mind coming up with other ways to make him smile.

Whoa. Where did that thought come from?

“What I want to know is, how did you get such special treatment?”

I blink at him like I’m an uncomprehending idiot. “Excuse me?”

“Well, I’ve been here for the last fifteen minutes. First, standing in line.” He gestures at the line of customers that trails out the door. “And now, waiting for my order.”

Guilt fills me. Just a tiny bit. Sweet Dreams Café is the most popular bakery and coffee shop in Carmel-by-the-Sea. All the tourists love it. All the locals love it too. It’s been in Stella’s family for generations.

“Yet you skip past the line, walk straight in here and grab your ready-made drink within a few seconds of your arrival. Do you have a Fast Pass?” A brow lifts, and I’m hit with a quiver. Like Cupid just drew back his bow and shot that arrow right in my heart.

Or perhaps that arrow struck me in, ahem, other places.

Who knew a brow lift could be so sexy?

 BLURB

“The feeling I have in this very moment, after not seeing her for so long, will haunt me forever, reminding me why I left to begin with.”

For as long as I can remember, Easton Crews has been off-limits. As much as it kills me, that’s never going to change.

After his little disappearing act three years ago, then suddenly showing up out of nowhere, I shouldn’t want anything to do with him.

It doesn’t matter how beautiful he still is. Or how close we once were. It shouldn’t matter that my entire body lights on fire with need whenever he gets close.

He chose the worst possible time to leave without so much as a goodbye.

However, just like the first day he walked into our home, I’m drawn to him, needing him near me just as badly as I need air to breathe, and I can’t stand it.

I want to hate him. I know I should hate him. But hating him is the last thing he’ll let me do.

I push, he pulls harder, until I’m completely wrapped up in him, my mind lost in the one person who is forbidden—the one person I’ve always loved, even when he belonged to someone else.

Easton was never meant to be mine. It took me years to come to terms with that and now that I finally have, he’s here, right in front of me, more irresistible than ever.

The part I fear the most about that—he’s the one person capable of completely wrecking my world.

 “I’m not leaving until you take all of your hate out on me. Let me feel it. All of it. Every dirty look. Every nasty word. I will have it all before I leave. Stop hiding from me.”

This. Book. A couple years ago I was talking to V about stories she had going on and she sent me a snippet of this one. I immediately started begging for the entire thing. Completely enamored with the characters, the story, the emotions and I couldn’t get enough. When she picked this one up again I knew it would be epic and completely different from anything she had written before. I would get this book literally sentences and paragraphs at a time and I ain’t even gonna pretend I didn’t want to wait. I begged for this book like crazy.

Easton and Kota are so special to me. So many parts of this book I can relate to. The emotional parts especially. I laughed and cried. I was mad. I swooned. This book literally has all the great things.

Victoria did and phenomenal job with this book. I’m so grateful for this story. It was addicting and completely amazing. Don’t miss this epic friends to lovers/forbidden romance. It’s one that I’ll always cherish and devour time and time again!!

 EXCERPT

She stops and turns around when she hears my boots crunching in the gravel behind her. The cold look in her eyes is almost enough to freeze my damn heart. “Don’t you dare follow me, Easton. Turn back around and go inside.” With pained eyes, she points at the building and screams. “GO!”

After yelling at me, she immediately turns back around and starts walking again to get away from me.

Ignoring her demand, I stalk toward her, wrapping my arm around her waist right as she attempts to straddle her motorcycle.

“You’re not driving home,” I say, while squeezing her waist and pulling her against me. “I get that you want fast right now. That you need a rush to clear your head. Trust me, I know you. I’m the one that got you addicted, but you’ve had too much to drink.”

“You don’t need to worry about what I do,” she growls out in anger, before elbowing me in the stomach in an effort to get away. “Dammit! Let me go. I need to leave. I can’t be here.”

She’s still trying to fight me, so I carefully lower her to the gravel and trap her under my body, pinning one of her legs underneath mine. “Give me your keys,” I growl, an inch away from her lips. “Don’t make me force them out of your hand. I can pin you under my body all night if I fucking have to, Kota.”

“Yeah, I don’t think my brother would like that much.” She attempts to buck me off with her hips, but it does nothing.

I smirk down at her and push my hips closer against her body. “Fight me all you want. I’ll win.”

“Fuck you, Easton!” Breathing heavily, she lays still and fights to control her breathing from below me. After a few seconds, her eyes meet mine, and she grins. “Fetch.” She tosses her keys across the parking lot and then pushes my chest, speaking against my lips. “Now. Get. Off.”

I release a hard breath and take a moment to analyze her face. It feels like forever since I’ve seen it.

Her big, gray eyes are framed by long lashes and her dainty, freckled nose is now pierced and flaring out in anger.

Catching me off guard, she pushes her way out from under me and closes her eyes as she runs her hands over her face and lays back. “Just leave me be. I don’t want to be anywhere near you. I’ll have Hope take me home.”

“You really mean that?” I question with a tight jaw. “You still hate me after three damn years?”

“How can I not?” she bites out, before jumping to her feet, ignoring my hand as I reach it out to help her. “You tore my heart out. Now get out of my way.”

I bite my lip, holding in my anger as she pushes past me and disappears inside.

I’m still standing out here with my hands in my hair when she walks back out a few minutes later following Hope to her old, beat-up truck.

My heart pounds relentlessly as I watch them hop inside and drive away.

You tore my heart out.

Those five words hurt like hell. She’s always been good at making me feel.

I asked for his criteria for bed buddies-that’s the PG version.

He swore at me and said he didn’t do groupies. And just like that, our friendship was off to a great start.

Reese Forster was the starting point guard for the Seattle Thunder.

Gorgeous. Cocky. Loved by the nation.

He’s also attending preseason basketball training camp where I used to work.

Correction: where I work again, because I was fired from my last job.

And I might have a tiny bit of baggage, but that’s normal. Right?

Reese and I shouldn’t have become friends. We shouldn’t have become roommates.

Reese Forster was the starting point guard for the Seattle Thunder. Charlie had followed his career, knew his stats and now he was going to be at the camp training. The camp she worked at. She was currently going through some stuff. Lost her job. Dumped by her boyfriend. But when they become roommates things get even more complicated. Charlie’s a little bit crazy. Reese is in the NBA. They shouldn’t be friends let alone anything more.

“I felt normal, for a small moment.

I was a girl crushing on a guy, not a fangirl gawking over a celebrity, and it hit me hard in the chest. Right there, making that thing pumping and skipping a beat.

That was what I’d been afraid of.”

4.5 Crazy Stars! I really fell in love with Charlie. She had so much adversity thrown at her and somehow she just kept right on moving. Not without issues. But she still did it. I love the angst in Tijan’s writing and I found Charlie’s story so unique. What she went through was something I never really thought of before. And Reese…actually it should be Reese Forster. Two names. The way these two “friends” fought their attraction. And then tried to explain it away. Attractive people gravitate towards attractive people…right? It’s only natural. LOVED IT! Fun, quirky, sad, broken, beautiful…it all spoke to me and made me keep turning page after page.

When you are addicted to those angsty, emotional stories, you only need to pick up a Tijan book and you will feed your addiction. Her stories are page turners that you cannot look away from. Books that you can read over and over again.

Tear Drop Shot

Excerpt

He came out, all ready, saw me, and shook his head.

Giving him the biggest smile I could muster, I handed over his coffee and dangled my keys. “Let’s go.”

My neighbor was coming home from his night shift at a factory. He was trudging down the hallway when he saw us, lifted a hand in greeting, then stopped. His head shot upright and his shoulders stiffened.

He rotated swiftly on his heels, his eyes wide and bulging. He held up a hand. “Is that—”

“No.” Lying. Another superhero quality of mine. “It’s late, Bill. That’s my brother.”

Reese squashed a laugh and nodded to the guy. “What’s up.” It wasn’t a question, but a greeting, and he hustled me past my neighbor.

I gave Reese a look as we went to my underground parking spot. “He’s going to hammer me later. He’ll know he wasn’t seeing things.”

“He’s a fan?”

“The biggest.”

Reese smirked, meeting my gaze over the top of my car. “Bigger than you?”

We were entering cheesy territory here. We needed to scale it back.

“I have a cardboard cutout of you,” I told him. “In my closet.”

He froze. “You’re joking.”

I was, but now I had to buy one. “Wouldn’t you like to think that.” Settling into my chair, I felt better—more familiar terrain again. “But the funny thing is, next time you come, you won’t know if I was serious or if I bought him after I told you.”

Reese just rolled his eyes, putting the coffees in the cup holders for both of us.

He was looking around as I pulled out of the lot. “This is actually a nice place.”

“The underground parking is nice. The apartment building itself is okay. Nothing great.” I didn’t tell him how the lights in the laundry room would dim, so if I used those machines, I had to prop the door open with a rock. Or how I’d only do my clothes between seven in the morning and nine. Nine was the latest. After that, people were stirring, and there were a few neighbors I wasn’t so sure about.

Reese whistled as I pulled up to departures seven minutes later. “You weren’t kidding. That’s close.”

“And you’ve barely had your coffee.”

He yawned now, blinking a few times. “I’ll grab some inside. You can have it.”

I parked, but didn’t shut off the engine.

“Do not get out,” he warned.

I grinned. “Wasn’t planning on it. We really don’t need to go to that level, with the hugging, would we kiss or not… Too many strings, friend.”

He smiled back, but his eyes had started to smolder a bit. He leaned over, dropping his voice, “I’ll answer one of those questions.” His lips caught mine in a good, firm kiss, one that sent my senses spiraling and stole just the slightest bit of oxygen from my lungs.

I might’ve needed to gather my bearings as he pulled back and grabbed his bag from the back. Before he turned, he gave me a second kiss, this one lighter. “Go home. Go to bed,” he said as he reached for the door. “Text me when you park, and again when you’re inside your place. Humor me. I’m a friend. I can care.”

He was starting to leave, but I tugged on his shirt.

He paused, looking back.

“And after that?” I asked.

“We’re friends. Let’s play it by ear.”

Our gazes held, a shared reminder of the other details in our agreement. I saw his darkening, so I let go. “Okey-dokey. Hope you don’t get mauled.”

He laughed. “It’s too early for that.”

But we both knew the truth. It could happen.

As if reading my mind, he amended, “It’s usually not that bad. If it is—and I don’t think it will be—airport security is good with celebrities here. They’ve got a special room and everything. Plus…” He reached in his bag and pulled out a baseball hat, dragging it low over his eyes and flicking up his hood. “This is pretty incognito.”

His height wasn’t, but I decided to pick my battles. “I’ll expect twenty questions by the time you land.”

He laughed. “Don’t think so. I’m going to be sleeping that whole time, but I’ll text you updates just to annoy you.” He got out, but bent back down, his tone more serious. “Do me a favor? Only take that job if you want it. Don’t take it because you feel desperate. I can loan you money, if anything.”

That wiped all joking aside. “Reese.” Dammit. “I’ll never lose myself in a guy again. Ever.”

“Yeah, but before you didn’t have a friend who could loan you money until you got to a place where you could pick something that actually made you happy.” His eyes flashed a warning. “Now you do. Just think about it. It’s a loan. I’d give one to another friend in the same spot.”

I rolled my eyes.

He chuckled. “Drive safe. I liked screwing you. Let’s do it again and soon.”

“I changed my mind. Get mauled!”

I could hear his laugh as he shut the door and headed inside, his bag over his shoulder. Only a couple guys squinted at him, their heads cocked to the side. He was right. His incognito look really was incognito, but he was still frustrating.

And I was hoping for thesoontoo.

Driving back, my phone kept buzzing.

Reese: Checking in.

Reese: I had to check my bag. It’s too big for a carry-on.

Reese: Two autographs.

Reese: Going up the escalator now.

Reese: At the security line. The guards are cool. They promised not to be angry when Thunder beats the Coyotes.

Reese: Through security.

He knew I couldn’t answer. I was driving.

Reese: I’m at gate A6.

Reese: This is a nice airport. I always forget till I get here.

Reese: I upgraded to first class.

Reese: Coach wants to make sure I get back in time for meetings this morning.

Reese: Still not boarding. Just letting you know.

After parking, I grabbed my phone.

Me: It’s supposed to be questions. Like, if I asked security if I could put a body in my bag, could I still check it? Questions like that. You’re not following the rules.

Reese: Fuck the rules. These are my rules.

Reese: You do questions. I do updates. Deal with it.

Reese: Except now. Are you back at your place?

Me: Yes. Walking upstairs now.

Reese: No updates from you. Well. Yes. Tell me when you get in your place.

I turned down my hallway. Bill’s door opened and his head popped out. His hair was scruffed up like he’d been trying for a Mohawk. “No bullshit. Was that him?”

I was about to break a fellow Reese Forster fan’s heart. “It was my brother.”

He glared. “You’re not fucking with me?”

“No.”

“Oh.”

That was it.

His head went back in, and he slammed his door shut.

Immediately Mrs. Rings yelled from her apartment across the hall. “STOP SLAMMING THE DOORS! EVERYONE FUCKING SHUT IT!”

And her parrot a second later.

“STOP SLAMMING FUCKING SHUT IT!”

And then, “SHUT IT, BORIS!”

And her parrot again, “EVERYONE FUCK IT AND GO TO SLEEP!”

BLURB

My life is a mess.

I’m walking around with a black eye. My position on the hockey team is questionable at best, and if that’s not bad enough, I think I’m falling for my dead girlfriend’s best friend.

Every day, it’s a fight to feel alive, and yet, I drink to numb the pain. Everyone is standing back, watching me fall apart.

Everyone except Hannah. No matter how many times I push, she’s there to pull me back. She refuses to let me spiral any deeper. And after one kiss—she’s impossible to ignore.

Unfortunately, it seems she and I aren’t the only thing being kept a secret.

Anyone who has ever experienced losing someone you love knows that life is broken into two parts. One part is life with the person you loved and the other is trying desperately to find a new normal after that person is gone. It’s a heartbreaking thing to experience and Nick found that out at the young age of seventeen when his girlfriend Mia died. He is completely lost and deals with his grief in the only way he knows how but that his friends and family do not approve of. He is constantly drinking, fighting and hooking up with random girls. My heart broke for him over and over as he tried to find himself again and deal with life without the one person her thought would be his forever.

“The thing is, there’s nothing left of me for them to take. Mia took it all with her last breath.”

Hannah made a promise to her best friend Mia before she passed away to watch out for Nick and make sure he is ok. Hannah is trying desperately to make good on what she said she would though Nick doesn’t make it easy at all. The thing is Hannah may just be in love with her dead best friend’s boyfriend. After months of them hanging out and trying to help him find his way out of the darkness, it seems he feels the same way.

“I’m going to kiss you, and once I do, everything is going to change.”

I honestly wasn’t sure how I felt at first when these two started to get together so soon after Mia passed away. They both felt the same way too, like maybe people wouldn’t understand so they tried to hide how they felt. It becomes such an emotional roller coaster for them because they have this pull they feel towards one another but they both feel like they are betraying Mia and her memory. I was a big fan of Hannah. She is a force to be reckoned with and Nick was just so lost I was hoping they could help each other find a new normal. As much as I wasn’t sure how I felt at first about them getting together so soon as the story went on and secrets are revealed, I wanted them both to be able to love each other the way they wanted to see that you can’t help who you love. This book kind of ended on a cliffhanger with things up in the air and I can’t wait for the next one to see if Nick and Hannah get the chance they deserve.

“You happened out of nowhere, and I realized I can still feel the way I did. All was not lost when she died. The stars still shine up there, and the earth still spins, and that’s because of you. We’re just under a different sky, Hannah.”

Excerpt

Her fingers rub against each other like they’re trying to control themselves. Does she want to reach out and touch me? The thought of her being nervous makes me smirk. Her eyes scan up my legs, to my bare chest, and stop on my lips. She bites down on her own, and I can’t help but notice the pink hue on her chest.

She’s losing it. There’s a power in that, an exhilaration that’s hard to ignore. I need to remember to lose the shirt more often.

“I never noticed…” she whispers, moving her hands down to her sides. “I mean, I noticed. I just never…”

“Allowed yourself too long to appreciate it.” I move toward her.

“Right.” Her chest rises and falls rapidly, like she has zero control of herself.

“And what about now? Are you going to allow yourself?” My last step brings me to her feet, and I straddle one leg while standing above her.

Her chin lifts, and her hair skims over her back. “It’s probably not a good idea.”

“Sometimes the bad ideas are the ones that change our lives, Hannah. Let me change everything.” I lean down, inching my lips closer to hers. “I know you said you didn’t want me to kiss you yet, but…”

BLURB

Thirteen years before Emma Dumas bought me in a bachelor auction to teach me a lesson she stole my heart down on Key West. I fell so hard for this girl I made all the promises. Only with Emma, I really meant them.

And then I disappeared.

But it wasn’t my fault. Let’s just call my reason “Family Business”. I’d tell you what that business is, but then I’d have to kill you. Just kidding. I can’t tell you what my family business is because it’s so secret, even I don’t know.

My point is… I didn’t ghost. It was a weird twist of circumstances. And OK, yes. I did hook up with pretty much every girl on the island that week. But after I met Emma, I was ruined. She’s the only one I wanted.

It’s been thirteen years. I’m a changed man. I STILL want her. I have ALWAYS wanted her.

But it’s kind of hard to tell her that with a gag in my mouth and a hood over my head.

*****

Bossy Brothers: Jesse features a bachelor auction gone wrong, four smart ladies who botch a crazy revenge kidnapping, a fancy power dream date with fast cars, private jets, and expensive yachts, lots of ex-sex, and a happily ever after that proves… sometimes the best man for the job is a woman.

Is it possible to love and not like a book? Well, that is how I feel. I LOVED parts of it and parts of it well…not so loved. Emma is a wounded woman. While she is one of four owners of a billion dollar cosmetics company and has the world at her fingertips, she has been harboring anger towards a boy she met 13 years ago. A boy she felt an instant connection to and stole her heart. A boy who made her think soulmates were possible and she wanted to spend forever with. This boy promised the same things to others. He broke the hearts of others and left them flat too. Those others are her 3 best friends and 3 other owners of her cosmetics company. Thirteen years ago a young, hot, rich, smooth talking boy met them all at different times of the week and made promises to all of them. After nursing broken hearts, these three compared stories and bonded over heartbreak.

The boy? Well, he doesn’t remember these 4 women. He had his own issues and doesn’t remember much of anything except being labeled as a playboy and heartbreaker. A troubled young man involved in a fast crowd. Now he is trying to get his life together and is trying to be a better man. But the cloud that is always over him and his brothers’ legacy is cloudier then ever.

Emma and her besties hatch this “plan” to make him pay and it just felt wacky to me for these grown women to be lashing out all these years later. It’s not like they were in a long term relationship with Jesse for god’s sake!! They were flings and one night stands! So yeah, that part of the book was baffling to me.

We have a funny, witty love/hate relationship between Emma and Jesse. When they come face to face he feels like maybe this could be a 2nd chance for them. I loved watching these two try to out do each other and impress each other and their antics. I was laughing out loud more then once. I was really getting into their 2nd chance at love and then that was where I got lost again. The author uniquely weaves a side story into their love story and I was confused. I don’t get it. I don’t know why the book needed it. Maybe it will make sense in future books but for me, I felt like I was reading two books in one. Now that doesn’t mean that once this second weird story starts to unfold, it may make sense but for right now it seemed so awkward. I will have to see how this all unravels. I am also looking forward to reading about the other brothers and their stories.

EXCERPT

EMMA

“What are you doing?” I ask.

“What’s it look like?”

“It looks like you’re parking at a Tastee-Freez.”

“Nothing gets by you, does it, Emma?”

“Why are you taking me to a Tastee-Freez?”

“Usually people come here for ice cream.”

I just blink at him.

“You don’t like ice cream?”

“Everyone likes ice cream.”

“Exactly,” he says, grinning like a foolish, charming bastard. Which makes no sense at all, but wow. I’d forgotten about that smile and how disarming it is. He looks at me. “Come on,” he says. “It’s a date, right? You paid ten million dollars for this date and now you’re going to complain when I do something date-y?”

This wasn’t part of the plan. The plan was:

Buy him.

Drive up to his lake house.

Drug him.

Wait for the girls to show up.

Take him over to our lake house.

Tie him up.

Make him regret all his asshole decisions thirteen years ago.

Probably gloat too. Little bit of, “Look at me, so rich and powerful now. And you dumped me, you dumbass. But oh, hey. I’m too good for you now. You could’ve had all this and now you’ve got nothing. Sucks to be you.”

Which is all pretty childish because he’s Jesse Boston. He could get any girl he wants. Just look at how they fell all over him tonight at the auction.

Ten. Million. Fucking. Dollars.

I feel sick. Literally, I feel sick. It’s not that we can’t afford the ten mil. It’s just… that was not the plan. This asshole isn’t worth ten million. What the hell were all those women thinking?

And us. What the hell were we thinking? This is all Hannah’s fault. I’m gonna kill her later.

No revenge plan is worth ten million dollars.

And now he wants to have ice cream with me.

Uggggh.

“So?” Jesse says.

“Hmm?”

“Are we gonna get out of the car? Or are we going to sit here all night?”

“I’m not really in the mood for ice cream,” I say.

He grins at me again. Oh. God. Why is he so damn hot? It’s not fair. “See, that’s the best part about ice cream. You don’t have to be in the mood for it. In fact, eating it when you’re not in the mood is the best part. Because it puts you in the mood.”

And then he does one of those little eyebrow waggles.

I squint at him. “Are you coming on to me?”

“What?”

“Was that innuendo?”

He frowns. “What the fuck are you talking about?”

I point to his forehead. “You waggled at me when you said ice cream puts you in the mood.”

“I didn’t waggle at you.”

I huff. “Dude, you totally did.”

“OK, whatever. If you say I did, then I did. But no. It wasn’t innuendo. Ice cream is like… that’s just what people eat when they’re stressed, ya know?”

I just stare at him.

“God, for a woman who paid ten million dollars for me, you sure are a tough crowd.”

“I know how much I paid for you,” I snap. “Stop reminding me.”

“OK,” he says, holding up a hand. “Would you like me to take you home? Should we just… end this?”

I huff. “I paid ten million dollars for you. I’m getting my date.”

He stares at me. No. He glares at me. “Then get your fucking ass out of my car and order a motherfucking ice cream.”

And then he gets out, not even waiting for me. Just gets out, slams the door, and walks up to the Tastee-Freez and gets in line.

“Rude,” I mumble.
