#NewRelease Balance Check (#MyNewLife #2) by M.E. Carter #FunnyAndSwoony #FavoriteAuthor 


Title: Balance Check

A #MyNewLife Novel

Author: M.E. Carter

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Release Date: August 18, 2017

Our Review: 

  I needed Balance Check (book 2 in the #MyNewLife Series) after the way Getting A Grip left me hanging! I was really rooting for Elena to find her Greg (or at least a little bit of Tripp on the side!) 

“Tripp flashes me a perfect smile full of perfect teeth and a perfectly wicked twinkle in his eye. I may be a tad dazzled by him. Just a tad.” 

Greg returns but Elena is wary of handing him her heart again and worried that he can’t be counted on to stick around and put her first in his life. 

“But years of getting screwed over has made her leery and less trusting.”

Balance Check is an easy to read story that highlights the heart and humor (and maybe a bit of a moral) that can be found in the everyday.  

“Yes, I’m desperate. No, I don’t want to seem that way. She likes calm, cool, collected Greg. I can introduce her to neurotic, overly-excited Greg later.” 

I loved this whole story and especially the adorable epilogue, but for some reason I’m now craving hot dogs! 😉 
4.5 Stars!

BLURB

 Life has a funny way of throwing you off balance.

 Take me for example. I spent years in a bad marriage with a self-serving ass, only to have the love of my life show up when I least expected him. Greg helped me on my journey of self discovery and taught me that, no, I’m not perfect. But I’m perfectly me. It was an amazing journey.

 We laughed hard. We loved even harder.

 And then he was suddenly and cruelly ripped away from me by the unclenching jaws of fate.

 Ok, so it wasn’t that dramatic. And I really need to stop watching the Investigation Channel.

But now Greg is back and as it turns out, re-incorporating someone into your life isn’t that easy. Between jobs, kids, and barely-there friendships, life and love can be messy. Making it all work is a balancing act.

But we’re determined to get it in check.

Our Review: 

 Getting A Grip is a wonderful and unique story that is more than a RomCom. Although it is definitely humorous, it is also real and full of heart and emotion. 

“Elena, you’re a woman, not a child. You’re supposed to have curves and scars and embellishments.” 

“Embellishments? Is that what we’re calling cellulite now?”

Elana is a 40 year old divorced woman trying to navigate and ‘get a grip’ on life and love after her husband left her for “Home-Wrecking Husband-Stealing Barbie.” 

“I would have laid into her so hard.” 

“No, you wouldn’t have.” She pulls the door open and we step inside the cool building as I concede her point. 

“Ok, fine, I wouldn’t have. But I would have thought very strongly about it!” 

There is snark, attempted flirting, lots of baby gymnastics, juice boxes, hot dogs and “A perfect, beautiful, Adonis of a guy….” and an ending that left me dying to read the next part of this story in book two.  
4.5 Stars!

AUTHOR BIO

 

Mother, reader, storyteller—ME Carter never set out to write books. But when a friend practically forced a copy of Twilight into her hands, the love of the written word she had lost as a child was rekindled. With a story always rolling around in her head, it should come as no surprise that she finally started putting them on paper. She lives in Texas with her four children, Mary, Elizabeth, Carter and Bug, who sadly was born long after her pen name was created, and will probably need extensive therapy because of it.

#NowAvailable The Baby Clause 2.0 (The Contract Series) by Melanie Moreland #5StarSeries #OurReviews


Our Reviews:

The Contract:

OMG! Richard was such a Dick! I just can’t believe that author Melanie Moreland managed to make me like him, forgive him, and (though I hate to admit it) *swoon* fall in love with the big jerk!!! 
“A voice spoke in my head, whispering maybe what she needed all along was someone to hold her up, rather than tear her down.” 

An arranged marriage with the sweetest girl ever melts Richard VanRyan’s tough exterior but a life and career built on a foundation of lies is bound to crumble. 

5 Stars!!

-Diane-

The Baby Clause 2.0:

The Baby Clause is a short, sweet and quick read. It’s a little peek into Richard and Katy’s life after ‘The Contract’. 

“Daddy. A title I never thought would belong to me. A swell of sentiment made my throat thick. I reached out and grasped Katy’s hand, needing her touch. “I’ll be the best daddy I can be.”

I loved reading more about my favorite reformed jerk! There is a lot of emotion jam packed into this short story.  

“I tried not to be an ass too much of the time, although Katy liked to remind me it was deeply ingrained in my psyche.” 

The really cute sweet story will make you smile and feel good. And as a portion of the sales goes to charity, just purchasing this novella can make you smile and feel good! 

“The cold-hearted man I first knew was gone and replaced by this protector who would do anything to care for his child. To care for me.” 
I love reading how such a little being can melt the hardest of hearts. Richard as a daddy is even more swoon-worthy! 

5 Stars!!

Blurb: 

A tyrant by day, a playboy by night. That is the reputation that precedes Richard VanRyan. He lives life the way he wants, no concern for the opinion of others. He cares for no one, is completely unrepentant, and he has no desire to change his ways.

Katharine Elliott works under Richard as his PA. She despises him and his questionable ethics, but endures all the garbage he sends her way, because she needs the job. Her end goal is far more important than the daily abuse and demands she tolerates from her nasty tyrant of a boss.
Until the day, he asks her for something she never expected. A new role with a personal contract — fiancée instead of PA.
What happens when two people who loathe each other, have to live together and act as though they are madly in love?
Sparks.
That’s what happens.
Can the power of love really change a person?
Will they survive the contract?
What do you do when the one person you hate the most becomes the one person you can’t live without?

AUTHOR INFORMATION: 

BIO:
New York Times/USA Today bestselling author Melanie Moreland, lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her beloved husband of twenty-seven-plus years and their rescue cat Amber.

NewRelease #SoGood by Nicola Rendell #AnAlphaDogsSeries #OneClickIt #5Stars #RomCom



OUR REVIEW:
 

So Good is a super swoony, sweet friends to lovers tale. An accidental view shows Max a different side of Rosie and his eyes are opened to what has been right in front of him all along. 

“I had to get out of there. I needed a cold shower, or a call from my tax guy, or an unexpectedly urgent trip to the DMV—anything to stop myself seeing her stark naked every g-d time I looked at her.”

I was drawn into the story by the incredible humor and then captivated by the characters including Julia Caesar, the cat and Cupcake, the cutest dog. Max is a bit of a pushy alpha, but protective and thoughtful to a fault. Rosie is kind and independent, an awesome heroine who deserves her HEA. 

“You know, I never really had crushes.” He straightened out his dessert spoon and lifted his eyes to meet mine. “Because I think it was always you.”

Nicola Rendell has again given us a sweet, funny and Hot, Hot, Hot story to savor and swoon over. 5 Stars!!

SYNOPSIS

On the roof of a house outside Truelove, Maine, master carpenter Max Doyle looks down through a skylight and sees the most beautiful woman he’s ever laid eyes on. She’s naked, she’s gorgeous, and everything about her is perfect, down to the ball-busting tattoo of a rose that wraps around her hip. But it isn’t just any woman making his knees buckle. It’s his best friend, Rosie Madden. And as he stands there, mesmerized and precariously close to toppling off the roof, he knows he’ll never, ever be able to look at her the same way again.
Rosie can’t help but notice that Max is suddenly acting very strange—lots of long stares, totally tongue-tied, and not at all like the slightly cocky hunk she’s proud to call her best friend. She can’t figure it out, until later that night when Max rescues her from the world’s worst date, challenges her to a game of pool, and shows her just exactly what she’s got him thinking about. Repeatedly.
But life is complicated. Rosie’s cat, Julia Caesar, wants to eat Max’s dog Cupcake for an afternoon snack. A dream job threatens to pull them apart. And another glance through the skylight changes everything, one more time. Yet try as they might, they can’t go back to being just friends, because falling in love with the one you’ve always adored?
It feels so good.

#NewRelease The Edge of Us by Veronica Larsen #Standalone #5Stars #ContemporaryRomance


Our Review: 

The Edge of Us completely intrigued and enthralled me from the start. It had a mysterious air that kept me off balance trying to find which characters I could connect with, but everyone was keeping secrets. My sympathies were fickle and bounced from character to character at the turn of a page or the drop of a secret. 

“I step backward toward the door, watching her expression change. Her brows knit together and secrets swim past her eyes.” 

I loved the fun bantering between Mila and Andrew! I think that was when we saw the softer sides of these two. Mila is such an amazing character. She was strong and independent but with that she refused to show any vulnerability. 

“Do you do competitive jar opening on your time off? You work at an office. What do you do with these things?” I poke at his biceps” 

Amazing writing and surprising twists kept me turning pages as fast as I could read. Was I unraveling a second-chance, love triangle or friends to lovers tale? It is a completely original storyline that had me guessing what I was even reading.

 SYNOPSIS

Eight years ago, Cole Van Buren left me at the altar without a single explanation. My heart’s been at a standstill ever since, the anger keeping me from moving on. Keeping me from seeing the man who’s been right in front of me all this time…

Andrew’s been the friend I needed, the one constant through the hardest times of my life. But one night, the lines blur and we’re tipped into something more. Just when I’m ready to explore what we could be…

My ex comes back.

Cole says he didn’t come to get me back, but I should know better. The answers he dangles overhead are the ones I need to finally let go.

 Except there’s no such thing as closure, only a past that wants to pull you backward.

#NewRelease The Proof Is The Way It Hurts by E.S. Carter #M/MRomance #Novella #GeorgeAndDylanForever #HotHotHot #5Stars 

The Proof Is The Way It Hurts a new novella by ES Carter is LIVE and 99c/99p or FREE with Kindle Unlimited!! 

Our Review: 

This is a really lovely second chance M/M romance. A quick, easy read that is not short on emotion, heat, or romance. 

“I thought life had taken everything from me.  

My family. 

My friends. 

My comrades. 

My arm. 

The man I was born to love.  

But it didn’t.  

Life takes, but it’s up to you to get it back.” 

After his tour in the military, George returns to his hometown a changed man, unsure of his reception. There is only one person’s opinion he cares about and there is only one person’s forgiveness and acceptance that he seeks. 

“The proof is in the way it hurts to be without them. 

The proof is how that hurt can only be soothed by the arms of a lover you thought you’d lost. 

The proof is in forgiveness, whether deserved or not.” 

Short in pages but definitely not short in feeling, George and Dylan’s story is one I will definitely be reading over and over.

About the 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, 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 ❤

#NewRelease Fall by Eden Butler #ContemporaryRomance #Beautiful 


Our Review: 

Like a tropical storm, this story builds from a quiet tale in a bar to a tempest that pulls the reader along, getting tossed about. 

The setting of Hawaii is as alive and multidimensional as a character in the story. As a reader I fell in love with the place, not able to resist it’s charm. 

“This place, Lil, you know it better than me, it gets inside you. It’s a living, breathing entity that can’t be quieted. You could travel a million miles. You could put as much space between yourself and the past and it still won’t silence the voice inside you.” 

“What voice?” 

“The one that tells you where you belong.” 

Lily had moved from her birthplace in Hawaii to New Orleans and got her degree and started her career. She is still running from guilt and sadness and death, but it always seemed to follow her. 

“There was the pain that lay waiting in Hawaii, where her life had more than once been destroyed by death.” 

I love the way this story unfolds, only giving the reader little hints of the story as it goes along. It kept me guessing all the way through and at times I found myself holding my breath for the next discovery on the next page! 

“I suppose falling is fine when you’ve got someone to catch you.”

I’ve just recently discovered this author, but I’m completely in love with her beautiful, lyrical writing style and can’t wait to read more!!!

Excerpt:

“See, there you go calling me pet names and I still don’t have one for you. Unless you change your mind about buggah…”

“No,” he said, sliding his fingers into her damp hair. “I rather you say to me, na’u `oe so I can say it back.”

“What does that mean?”

He hesitated, only for a moment, the smile lighting up his face lowered, as though unsure if he should tell Lily the truth. She held her breath when he moved his thumb across her lower lip and then Keilen nodded, decision apparently made. “It means ‘you’re mine.’”

“That…” Her breath shuddered then, and she shook against him. “That’s what you want me to say?”

“That’s what I want you to mean.”

The kiss, when it came, reminded Lily of the first one he’d given her, all those years ago on Tommy’s dance floor. There was no Kiki there to force her to say stupid, inappropriate things. There was no Kona smiling like he knew what Keilen wanted to do to Lily once they left the bar. There was only the press of Keilen’s naked chest against her and the warm, smooth glide of his fingers on her back, pulling her close, sinking into the sandy ocean as he lowered his head and moved his mouth to hers.

She had meant it, that ‘your mine’ promise a thousand times in her dreams. She’d spoken it proudly to him anytime he moved through the hallways and half glanced at, half ignored her. She’d wanted to say it a million times before that night on the beach, but had never had him close enough; had never believed he’d want to hear anything similar from her.

But there she stood, under the rich moonlight, letting Keilen Rivers steal her breath, ravage her mouth like a predator she warmly welcomed. She’d say it a thousand times just to keep him close. She’d say it a million more because it was true.

“Keilen?” she said, holding his head still when he didn’t seem able to break away from her kiss. He grunted low, the only response he gave her. “I mean it.”

He didn’t answer. Instead, Keilen stared down at her a little breathless, stretching his neck so that Lily saw the steady quickening of his pulse as he watched her. A look, it seemed and a small confession, could shift this man’s world and leave him dumbfounded. It was a power Lily would have never believed she could wield. But there she was, holding him, that perfect fantasy, between her trembling fingers, living in a daydream on that dark autumn night, meaning the things she’d spoken with a bravery she never really had.

And he believed her. Maybe she believed it too.

#NewRelease #MomFail #Anthology #RomCom 

Cover Design: MadHat BooksRelease Date: July 25, 2017

 

Our Review: 

#MomFail is an anthology of novellas by Moms about Moms. They are hilarious, mostly embarrassing, relatable snippets of life as a Mom. 

One of my favorite stories in this book is Road Trip by L.L. Collins where a slight technology glitch turns into the embarrassing moment that ‘keeps on giving’!! I laughed out loud at every turn of the page! 


“My daddy saw a cock at his work today! Have you ever seen a cock at your job?” 

I closed my eyes and pressed my lips together. This was it. This was how I would die because I willed a giant hole to open and suck me into it.”


Another favorite was Winging It by Marie James. It brought back memories of trying to handle solo parenting of a couple of rambunctious boys while my husband was an active duty soldier. 


“Grateful my toes are still dry when I reach the threshold outside the kids’ bathroom, I question whether to just leave it alone. The carpet isn’t wet yet. There’s still time to get the coffee going and a few minutes to inwardly debate the ongoing struggle between day drinking and moving to Colorado so smoking pot isn’t as frowned upon.” 


Each story was different and original but all highlighted our connection as perfectly imperfect women just doing our best and having a few laughs along the way. 



Synopsis

Everyone just stop for one bleeping minute so we can all get real with each other. Being a mom is some tough $#!†. You’re constantly wearing questionable substances that make you ask, “is this chocolate or … oh, crap …” and your purse is merely a receptacle for three-week-old snacks and broken crayons.

Let’s be honest … even when we’re doing this “mom” thing right, we’re somehow doing it completely wrong.

Pardon us while we dust off our collective Mother of the Year trophy and proudly present you with an epic anthology of #MOMFAILS.

*Stories inspired by real life (unless you’re a cop, then it’s all complete fiction). Names and situations have been changed to protect the guilty (and by guilty, we mean the moms). Because motherhood is a battlefield and we’re all just trying to survive by any means necessary.

Featuring this amazing lineup: Alissa York, A.M. Willard, BL Berry, Carina Adams, Claudia Burgoa, Crystal Burnette, Dylan Allen, Faith Andrews, Gia Riley, J.A. DeRouen, Kate Anslinger, Leddy Harper, LK Collins, LL Collins, Marie James, Piper Rayne, Riann C. Miller, Shari J. Ryan, Stephanie Rose, Stephie Walls, SM West, TL Swan, Teresa Michaels, and foreword written by: Nicole Kane Knepper.

#NewRelease A Scottish Wedding by Hilaria Alexander #SwoonyandSweet 

A Scottish Wedding 

By Hilaria Alexander 


Our Review: 

5 Swoony and Sweet Stars!! 

A Scottish Wedding gives us more from Sam and Hugh!! We get to see more of the foundation of love they are building on as they plan for a future together. 

“Passionate, brave, and steady, he seemed to have a gift for making me feel grounded when life threw curveballs that had me spinning. I was reminded that he was absolutely the one for me, the only one I wanted to build a family with.” 

I love catching up with this amazing couple as they learn how to be together and blend their lives. In Lost in Scotland, Hilaria Alexander made me fall in love with these characters and in A Scottish Wedding, she brought them back to me. 

-Diane-  


Blurb:Fans of Lost in Scotland will love revisiting the heather-covered highlands as Sam and Hugh try to make their happily-ever-after a reality in this wedding novel!

TYING THE KNOT!

Ladies, Hugh MacLeod is off the market! We caught up with the sexy hunk from Abarath and his fiancée, makeup artist Sam Farouk at an event in Edinburgh. The pair met last year while working together on season one. The Scottish actor looked handsome in a tailored dark grey suit, while the raven-haired beauty at his side turned heads in a golden lamé gown which channeled the iconic Marilyn Monroe dress of the same color. Ms. Farouk played coy when asked about the engagement, only revealing that the ring belonged to Hugh’s grandmother. With a dreamy look to her groom-to-be, Ms. Farouk confessed his proposal was “fairytale worthy.” MacLeod charmingly deflected each one of our questions about season two of Abarath, saying he would get in trouble if he

told us anything. When we asked if a date had been set yet, the engaged couple looked at each other for a brief second. Soon, they replied in unison in a way that turned us into mush. Ms. Farouk added that it will all depend on Hugh’s schedule and his commitment with the show. We wish the very best to the groom and the bride-to-be and we hope to bring you more news about their upcoming nuptials!

EXCERPT:

“The World’s End,” she mumbled. “Why does it sound so familiar?”

“Probably because it’s one of Edinburgh’s oldest establishments. You might have heard someone else talk about it.”

“I don’t think so, I don’t recall any conversation…” She trailed off. I glanced her way as her frown turned into sudden realization. “Of course! How could I be so stupid?”

“What?” I asked.

“The World’s End!”

“What about it?”

“It’s where Jamie and Claire go after their reunion in Voyager!” I gave her a look of confusion and she sighed, exasperated. “Hugh, remember Jamie Fraser from Outlander? Best book boyfriend, fictional husband, no-one-can-hold-a-candle-to-him, all-around badass hero?”

I raised my eyebrows in response, only a wee bit offended Sam didn’t care for Abarath quite the same way.

“Don’t give me that. We talked about this—Abarath is no Jamie Fraser. Different ballpark, MacLeod. Claire and Jamie’s love story withstands time and space!” she tried to reason. “Maybe I will change my mind about him if he stops being such a damn flirt!” She wasn’t wrong there; unlike Jamie Fraser, Abarath had no qualms about not being monogamous.

“Fine. You’re right. Can we go now, lass? I’m ready for a pint.”

“Of course. Let’s go,” she said, taking my hand and leading the way. We walked for a few minutes, fingers laced together, and then she stopped in her tracks again.

“Um, Hugh…you should take the lead.”

“Why is that?”

“Because I have no bloody idea where The World’s End is.”

I pursed my lips together, noticing how cute she sounded when she said bloody.

“Dinna fash yourself. I ken my away around here, neach-gaoil.”

“Why is it called The World’s End, anyway?”

“Because, once upon a time, that was where the city of Edinburgh ended. The walls of the city were just a few steps away, the world’s end, ye ken. Everything outside those walls was foreign and dangerous—a bit like you, in a way,” I told her with a smug smile.

“Har har,” she replied, laughing and igniting a warm ache in the middle of my chest.

“You know what, though, Sam?”

“What?”

“I wouldn’t want it any other way.”

#NewRelease Snatch (Cerberus #5) by Marie James #MMRomance #HotHotHot 

NEW RELEASE & GIVEAWAY

Snatch by Marie James


Cover Design: Essen~tial Designs

Release Date: July 13, 2017

Our Review: 

Snatch is the 5th book in the Cerberus MC series. It could be read as a standalone, but there is so much background that you would miss if you are not familiar with the amazing characters that make up the Cerberus MC. 
Unlike the other books in this series, Snatch is almost exclusively about the relationships of all of the members of Cerberus. It only touches on some of the missions that the MC goes on. 
“Now I just need to find the courage to tell the world that I’m pretty sure I want to spend the rest of my own forever with my best friend.”  
Itchy doesn’t want to hide his feelings and emotions in a closet, but also wants to respect his best friend’s feelings. Snatch seems to be overwhelmed by the way he responds to Itchy and doesn’t know how to handle their changing and growing relationship. 
About last night.”

“Three simple words, spoken with no sexual innuendo. A segue into a conversation about something I prayed he’d never mention while in the same second hoping he’d beg me to let happen again.”
I love this series and was so happy to catch up with all of the members of Cerberus. I loved seeing the signs of my favorite tough MC members being tamed by family and love! 

And did I mention HOT!! This book will melt your reading device!!! 

And can I just say that epilogue was epic, but really, Author Marie James, did you HAVE to end it that way?! As much as I love you… I kinda hate you right now!!! 

4.5 Stars!!

Synopsis

I’ve been Jaxon Donovan since the day I was born, obviously. My road name, Snatch, came years later due to my ability to literally snatch up any woman I set my sights on. I’ve always been a connoisseur of the opposite sex. Tall, short, thin, thick and juicy, my tastes knew no limitations.

I didn’t think there was a limitation to my sexuality, and I found out just how true that actually was the night my best friend took it upon himself to take me in his mouth. Sure, there’d been close calls before, the slip of a hand or misplaced lips. With our propensity to share women, it’s bound to happen. That fateful night, I was met with pure intention and an experience I never want to forget.

How do you explain to your friends, your brother’s in arms, that your extremely active sexuality has led you to your best friend’s door step? How do you admit, after twenty-six years of heterosexuality, that you’re into something else?

I’ll soon find out that what happens in the dark will always come to light.

#NewRelease Dating The Billionaire by Poppy Dunne #RomCom #Standalone #SexyGeek 


Our Review: 

Poppy Dunne has become my ‘go-to’ for a great quirky and fun RomCom. Dating the Billionaire does not disappoint. 

Dahlia Rossi is a dating a coach and relationship expert (read matchmaker). She believes in always following tried and true rules for her clients and herself. 
Jack Carraway is a super hot and sexy tech-geek billionaire who is impulsive and he never lets rules get in the way of what he wants.  
“Jack points an accusing wand in my face, and I don’t mean that in a dirty way. I kind of wish I meant that in a dirty way, but I think that’s for a different type of Harry Potter film. Harry Potter XXX and the Chamber of Horny Co-Eds. Forgive me, Rowling, for I have sinned in my thoughts.” 

When the couple meet they are immediately, intensely and uncontrollably attracted to each other! Sparks fly! But Jack wants Dahlia to break all the rules and Dahlia would like Jack to think before he leaps into action. 
“To say Jack and I shared a spark is a massive understatement. It was more like an instantaneous explosion, or an electrical fire that goes crazy and wipes out half a city block.” 

The story is hot and funny, smart and sarcastic in equal measures. This author has become my favorite voice for a laugh out loud quirky fun romantic comedy.

BLURB

 I’m Dahlia Rossi, dating coach extraordinaire. I know how to land you the man of your dreams. Follow my rules, you’ll meet the love of your life and have a gorgeous destination wedding in French Polynesia. Okay, that last one happened just the one time. But my rules work every time. I guarantee it.

1. The man makes the first move. Seems unfair? Life’s unfair. 
2. Never have sex on the first date. No, not even oral. And hands above the table, please. 

3. Play hard to get, but don’t make it too hard. 

 Solid rules, right? I thought they were. But then I met Jack Carraway, an impossibly sexy, frustratingly unpredictable billionaire, and broke them all. Everywhere. In an elevator. On a balcony. Beneath a gazebo, of all places.  

Whether I like it or not (spoiler alert: I like it!), Jack is taking me on wild adventure and we’re writing a whole new set of rules. Like, always reserve your matching Harry Potter costumes a week in advance; wrestling swans is not as easy as it looks; and sometimes, the man of your dreams pops up in the most unlikely of places and has a really big…boat.
 After years of watching couples find love, it may be my turn. But is this spontaneous playboy the real thing, or just a fun detour around my predictable life? All this time I’ve been following my own rules and going to sleep alone, with nothing but my second slice of princess cake to keep me company.

 But the more time I spend with Jack, the more I learn that rules…they’re meant to be broken.

 In love there’s only one rule: there are no rules.
