SYNOPSIS: I’ve spent the better part of a decade forgetting Ford Ellis. If he had just stayed away from Montana, I might have erased the memory of his striking blue eyes and rugged smile forever. Avoiding him was easy when the only place I saw his face was on ESPN—and a remote control could fix that problem. Except my boss just hired Ford as the new head coach for the Treasure State Wildcats. Not only will I be stuck watching him on the sidelines this season, but avoiding him will be impossible now that we’re working together. Maybe I haven’t forgotten Ford. Maybe I still dream about what we might have been. Maybe he hasn’t forgotten me either. Except those maybes won’t change the fact that we were never meant to be. Maybe he was mine once. But as of today, the only thing I’ll be calling Ford Ellis is Coach.
Football star. Single dad. And once, a long time ago, mine.
REVIEW: This was an adorable romance! Just such a sweet story, it felt a little insta love, because of the friends to lovers past and the second chance present. I enjoyed seeing Millie and Ford find their way back to each other. I also love how Ford was all in and knew he wanted her. I enjoyed seeing how Millie got along with Joey and how she held herself towards the end with Sienna. Joey is too cute and I love all the ways she adds to the story. Millie and Ford’s story is definitely complicated, but I like that you just feel like they were always meant to be!

SYNOPSIS: On Ronan Thatcher’s first week in Montana, he spots the most beautiful woman in the world. Love at first sight? Nah. He doesn’t believe in love. But he wouldn’t mind a date or two with the local beauty. Ronan is the type of man who gets what he wants, and he wants Larke Hale. Except Calamity’s sweetheart has sworn off men. The last time Ronan was rejected was, well . . . never. Yet Larke dismisses him without even batting those pretty brown eyes. Bruised ego in check, he’s about to walk away when a teenager marches into his office and asks to hire Ronan as her lawyer. Something about a bad grade and a ruined grade point average that will inevitably destroy her future. He’s about to lecture the kid for being melodramatic until he learns that the teacher she wants to sue is Larke. Suddenly this frivolous lawsuit seems like a bright idea. Ronan wants Larke’s attention and this is guaranteed to snag it. So let the brawl begin.
The Brawl is Book 5 in the Calamity Montana Series under Devney Perry’s KU pen name!
REVIEW: Another great small town romance from Devney Perry (aka Willa Nash). Seriously, this author just knows how to bring us small town goodness!!! I enjoyed seeing Larke keep turning Ronan down, especially with all the situations that were coming to keep bringing them together. The lawsuit is hilariously ridiculous, but it gets Ronan closer to Larke. Although they’re on opposite sides of the case, they can’t help but fall for one another. Ronan’s interactions with Larke’s daughter, from the very start, were seriously precious! In true Devney fashion there are some twists, turns, and the most satisfying ending. I’m sincerely in love with this series and I’m very glad we get another book in August of next year.

Boyfriend Material is the long awaited Book 2 in the Hawthorne University Series and available in Kindle Unlimited!
Release Date: July 25, 2021
SYNOPSIS: Skyscraper cheekbones, lush lips, and magnetic topaz eyes. I’m talking about Eric Hansen. Rich prick. Glorified hockey star. Thinks he’s amazing. Yeah. The Golden Boy and I are well acquainted. In prep school he trampled on my heart and kept right on going.
Three years later, he’s living the high life with frat parties and puck bunnies at Hawthorne University. On the other hand, people barely notice me. I’m the nobody, surviving in the seedy part of town as I struggle to keep my head above treacherous waters. The avoidance game we’ve been playing on campus was working—until he rescues me from a bad guy and claims he wants to help me more. Hello. I don’t need a knight in shining armor. This girl saves herself. Yet, he keeps showing up just when I need him, and I’m not sure how long I can ignore the undeniable spark between us. (It’s not even a spark; it’s a full-fledged blazing fire.) Can Eric prove he’s boyfriend material, or will this be a game we both lose?
REVIEW: I have been waiting for this book since I read Boyfriend Bargain back in 2019!! I was so excited that it was coming, and it releases on my birthday, which I felt like is a total sign. It was actually a lot deeper than I thought it was gonna be, but I really loved it. While both of these characters have dealt with so much, they come from such different backgrounds. It’s amazing to see them grow throughout the story. One thing I love about Ilsa Madden-Mills’ books, is the character development and how much I enjoy the characters themselves. I sincerely love that Julia and Eric get their second chance. I also love the happy ending of this one so very much.
Something else I enjoyed about this one is that it kind of highlights how we think we know people when we’re younger, but we don’t really know them as well as we think we do. That as we grow, and learn more about people and their experiences, we start to realize why they behave in certain ways. Not that understanding excuses certain behaviors, but often times in this book it’s the perfect example of what really understanding someone and loving someone unconditionally looks like. I am so happy that we finally got Eric’s story!

REVIEW: This book was so much better than I thought it be and I thought it was gonna be great! This series has been so emotional so far, and I definitely like the previous books, but this one is by far my favorite!! You see some of the set up in the previous books, which definitely adds to this story. I was really anticipating this one, because I just didn’t know what to expect when it came to how it would play out between Nova and Finn. These two were just meant to be together! They were also just such a likable characters–even when they were going to their struggles and dealing with everything else. I felt like the things that were difficult for them were often outside of their control rather than things that they were doing themselves or each other. I also appreciate the different backgrounds of these two, and how they address that they see things from different perspectives. They also listened and educated each other about their own experiences. Nova is just so strong, caring, and loving. She was a wonderful female character. I’ve been really curious about Declan as well from previous books and I was wondering how he was gonna play into this story. I felt like there were some good Easter eggs about his story in this one, and I am really, really hoping that Victoria Denault is going to take it where I think she’s taking it, because sign me the fuck up. Honestly, I just was so emotionally satisfied by this book. And not only do I love this story immensely, I love this freakin’ cover!! It is too cute and I can’t wait to get my physical copy!
Victoria’s debut novel, One More Shot, was released June 2, 2015. Between 2015 and 2019 she has had 10 novels published with Forever (Hachette) in two standalone series – The Hometown Players and The San Francisco Thunder. Victoria’s love of books began at 12 when she picked up her first Sweet Valley High and grew from there. Her favorite childhood gift remains the 1930s typewriter her parents found at a garage sale which actually wasn’t a gift for her. It was meant to be a display piece in their front hall but Victoria snuck it into her bedroom and it was on that typewriter she first began pounding out her own stories. When not writing books Victoria can usually be found on a beach somewhere. Her favorite beaches are La Concha in San Sebastian, Spain, Zuma Beach in Malibu California and Ocean Park, Maine.

SYNOPSIS: IT’S NOT EASY LIVING IN YOUR BROTHERS SHADOW. Jack Dryden-Jones is easily the worst rugby player on the field—when he moves to The States to follow in his brothers footsteps, he has no idea how he’d hate the game. He’s so horrible he considers faking an injury to take himself out of the game. Jack is a quick-witted, comic book loving gentleman—not an athlete. DO NOT DATE YOUR ROOMMATES CRUSH. When her roommate brings home a random stranger, Eliza is shocked when he makes himself at home; he’s strapping, strong and watching a movie at the end of her couch as if he belongs there. It makes her uncomfortable in the best way possible. But if there is one thing she believes in, it’s GIRL CODE: No girl may date her friend’s ex, past crush, or guys who have humiliated/used her. And she most certainly may not date any guy her friend currently fancies… DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK. Jack and Eliza are two of the good ones—it’s going to take a miracle to keep them apart.
Jock Reign is Book 5 in the Jock Hard Series and available in Kindle Unlimited!
REVIEW: Wow, who knew Sara Ney could make you fall for the worst player on the rugby team? I mean, I knew, but did you? Haha. I sincerely love Sara’s books. They make me laugh and pull me right into the story. This one was a little funny in that it seemed eerily similar to Jock Royal, but I did love it none the less. What I enjoyed most about this book is the characters and how perfect they were for each other. I loved Jack, but man did I want to smack some sense into him because of how he was handling the Kaylee and Eliza situation. Other than that, he was a perfect gentleman and I loved getting to see his and Eliza’s interactions. These two were definitely meant to be and I had fun seeing them try to resist each other.
I am lucky enough to be on Sara Ney’s ARC Team and have reviewed this book with honesty in exchange for an early copy!
