Being responsible hasn’t gotten me anywhere in life. My girlfriend left me for another guy. My career is over. I feel like I’ve lost everything.
Then I meet Sway Swenson.
She’s sexy, fun, spontaneous, has zero inhibitions, and thinks relationships are a waste of time, just like me. She’s perfect for getting me back into the game without looking for anything serious. The only problem? She’s hiding something, and the longer I’m around her, the more I want to uncover her secrets.
If only she’d let me.
I don’t do relationships. A crippling experience in high school was enough to make me avoid them like the plague.
Then I meet Anthony Wright.
Everything is fine until he decides to take off his stupid shirt and gives me a glimpse of his washboard abs. When he suggests hot and sweaty sex with no strings attached, I’m stupid enough to jump in with both feet. Yup. I fall for his ludicrous idea, but I refuse to fall for the man himself.
Even if he does make me curious about what life could be like if I wasn’t broken.

CHECK OUT THIS EXCERPT:
“Is that what we are? Friends?”
The surprise in his voice makes me pause, and my gaze bounces around his face in hopes of piecing together his thoughts. Unfortunately for me, he’s like a steel vault.
“What label would you use?”
Scratching his jaw, he weighs his options while I find myself waiting on pins and needles. “Friends, I guess.”
“Why do you sound so surprised?”
“I don’t really have friends,” he admits. “Damn, that sounds pathetic. I had coworkers. I had a girlfriend. And I had my parents. But friends? I didn’t have time for those before….” His voice trails off, leaving me hanging.
“Before what?” I inquire while continuing to assess him curiously.
“Before I lost everything.” He pauses then adds with a dry laugh, “Except my parents. They’re still around and as nosy as ever.”
Licking my lips, I let his words soak in before my two-cents slips past my lips. “No offense, but it sounds like you didn’t have much to lose in the first place. But I’m glad I can help you make a fresh start.” A light laugh escapes me when a thought hits me like a brick. “Man, Anthony. Are you sure you’re not a cat?”
He snorts. “Excuse me?”
“My entire job is giving them a fresh start,” I explain. “Plus, they’re kind of moody, have lost their homes, purr one minute then wanna bite your head off the next. Don’t tell me you don’t see the similarities.” I pop my hip out and place my hand on it before smirking at him. “At the very least, it’s your spirit animal. Come on, I’ve seen you with Jasper.”
“Jasper, as in the cat who is severely overweight and won’t let people touch him?”
I nod, trying to hide my grin. “Yup. Twins, I tell ya. Twins.”

Top Tip: Don’t put out an online ad offering your services as a fake date. Someone will take you up on it.
And it won’t just be for one night.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how I ended up being Mason Jackson’s fake girlfriend.
He didn’t even want me to be. No—his sister was solely responsible for me being his date for his ten-year high school reunion.
Now, she’s responsible for telling his parents our relationship is real.
We have no choice. We have to act like this isn’t all a mistake, like it’s not all fake, like we’re totally, completely, utterly, head-over-heels in love with each other.

She has a broken heart and revenge on her mind…
Last year Karrie was riding high. She had a boyfriend she loved, a softball scholarship, and the best roommate a girl could have.
When it turned out her man was a lying, cheating ballsack, she may have gone off the rails a bit.
Now, it’s a new year and Karrie’s ready to build herself back up and move on to bigger and better things.
Still, a little revenge would go a long way in helping the healing process.
He’s got a plan for revenge that will suit them both…
Ridge is used to being the BMOC. Sergeant of Arms of his frat and the ability to land any chick within snapping distance has made life pretty easy for him.
His home life is another story. He and his brothers are in the middle of a battle between his socialite mother and asshole father.
Ridge is looking for a stand-in to placate his mother and her matchmaking ways, and he has a feeling he’s just met the girl he can perfectly mold.
This makeover has nothing to do with love and everything to do with Karrie and Ridge using each other to get what they want. What starts as a ruse soon becomes an attraction they cannot deny. When it’s all said and done, they’ll both have more to confess than a need for revenge.
I caught a glance of myself in the mirror while I washed my hands, and a giggle escaped my lips.
My flannel shirt was now tied around the waist of my cutoff sweats, so you could see all of the writing on my favorite T-shirt, which showcased different lyrics from Thirty Seconds to Mars songs. Paired with my Docs and completely messy up-do, I looked totally grunge.
Like I’d walked right out of a portal from the nineties.
I swear, I’d seen Crush’s lip curl up when he saw me and Ridge playing beer pong. Which, by the way, Ridge obviously had a lot of experience in, because I was totally smashed and he seemed no worse for the wear.
Wes, on the other hand, had passed out in the corner of the room. Trixie had looked at him with contempt and gone home with a few of the other girls.
Still giggling, I swung open the bathroom door to see Ridge leaning against the wall, arms crossed, eyes on me.
“You’re leaning again,” I told him, trying not to trip over my feet as I stepped into the hall.
“What’s so funny?” he asked, ignoring my observation and taking me by the arm to help me stay upright.
“Nothin’, just how rad you look.”
“Yup,” I said, popping the p.
“Do you want me to take you home, or would you rather go up to my room and crash here?”
I swung my head toward him, much too quickly, and asked, “Is it safe?”
“Safe? What, to go to my room?” he asked, pulling me against him when I started to waiver.
“Yeah, you’re not gonna try any funny business, right?”
“I don’t make a habit of pawing at wasted girls, even if they look like members of the Nirvana fan club.”
“Good one,” I said, as he pointed me toward the stairs. “Are you sure there isn’t some hot chick in stilettos waiting to warm your bed?”
“Jealous?” he asked.
I tried to guffaw, but it came out somewhere between a snort and a burp.
“You gonna be sick?” Ridge asked, moving us faster.
“Your insinuation that I’d be jealous of you makes me sick, but physically … no.”
“Okay, well, let me know if you do feel like puking, I have a bathroom off of my room, and I’d rather you make it to the toilet, than vomit on my bed.”
“Will do, Captain,” I said, giving him a jaunty salute.
Ridge shook his head and propped me up against the wall while he unlocked his door.
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.
And we really shouldn’t have started sleeping together … (Except we did.)
I’m adorably psychotic. He’s in the NBA.
This is not a disaster waiting to happen, at all.

About Nana: USA Today Best Seller, Nana Malone’s love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she “borrowed” from her cousin.
It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen. She’s been in love with kick butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.
While she waits for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, in the meantime Nana works out her drama, passion, and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.

Welcome to my BOOKSTAGRAMMER SPOTLIGHT, where I show some love to our fellow Bloggers, Bookstagrammers and common Romance Readers. I started this because while there might be a lot of us out there, each of us is different and unique in not just reading, photography, books…everything! A fun way to show some love & learn a little more about the romance community members!! Today’s feature is a very lovely young woman who I met through Instagram and glad to have! ENJOY!
Name: Carly Wilson
My name is Carly, I am 30 years old, and I am originally born in Newcastle, but currently live in Leeds (UK) with my husband Craig. My favorite color is purple, which ironically ties in with my birthstone Amethyst making me an Aquarian. I’m a creative person at heart and love being crafty and getting to make things. You can often find me trying my hand at glass painting, knitting or sewing. I’m super talkative and love getting to know new people and socializing. I am an absolutely appalling cook, pretty much nearly everything I try to make ends up being a disaster!
Logo/IG name? @CarlehWilsonBooks
How/Why did you come up with it? My account became a ‘bookstagram’ account purely by accident. I began an Instagram account with the intention of interacting with friends, following celebrities and posting about my life. I then became very aware of the amount of books I wanted to talk about, post pictures of and fangirl over, so started to take pictures as and when and posted them. Over a few months I realized it wasn’t fair to people like my boss and my non-book loving friends having to see all my posts, so I created a separate profile for my personal pics and kept my initial account for books. The conjuring of the name is my name, surname and books. I simply have not found a title I’d like to keep and stick to, so in the meantime I’m keeping it simple.
When did you start Bookstagramming? What was the first thing you did? I first started intentionally bookstagramming back in August 2018, which doesn’t seem that long in hindsight. The first thing I did was just casually take pictures when I bought a book or began reading. I only started amping up my posts properly March this year when I made my account fully about books.
Why did you start what you started? Influence? I started innocently as just a regular user of Instagram and joined because my husband thought I’d enjoy ‘seeing all the book related pages’, and he was so right! I love everything book related and realized that despite my profile being about me and what I was up to, I just wanted to tell people what I was reading, and what I enjoyed. I then got offered a number of opportunities to review and share artwork, and the chance to apply to share things, so it has continued from there.
I have been influenced by so many good bookstagrammers, I just love seeing what different people come up with, and how they display or promote books.
Did you have any help at the beginning or winged it? I am a complete amateur when it comes to social media. I have no experience of how I should post, of trends and I most certainly do not have any photography skills. So I have completely winged it. My husband is a Digital Marketing Manager for a football club and he sometimes makes helpful suggestions, but I am very independent in terms of wanting to learn myself how to do things and what works. I get a buzz seeing new people follow and like my reviews or posts, and love being able to meet new people via my hobby.
Where I am an amateur at social media, I excel in being a passionate reader. I have pushed myself over the past few years to be an active member in several online book groups, and I am part of quite a few ARC teams for authors. I have been offered some amazing opportunities when it comes to reading, and I can’t help but want to post or talk about them.
What is your favorite part about BOOKSATGRAMMING and why? I adore sharing book covers, and feel real excitement when I see one that is absolutely stunning. I love the freedom to post that I have on this type of platform, and I feel like it is more interactive. I am still very much in an early ‘trying out’ stage for my account, but I am very grateful to those who like or comment on my posts, as it makes me smile and want to continue discussing books.
What platforms do you use (this is meant for APP’s mainly, things like Canva and so forth) Some people will be horrified to learn this, but it’s just me and my iphone.
What social media’s are you on? And do you have a favorite? I have a Facebook, Twitter and Instagram account, but I use them each for different reasons. My Facebook account is mainly for keeping in touch with my family and friends, and I view this as my ‘personal account. Facebook does however have lots of author/reader groups which I am a part of, where I regularly join in conversations that fellow book lovers are having.
Twitter is my mixture of personal and hobby, I will post about about things I watch, things I see and books. My account username is @carlehwilson.
Instagram is my hobby account, and it is the account I try to post on every day. This would be my favourite by far as I love the lack of drama, and how it is a place for everyone to showcase their hobbies, talents and lifestyles.
Do you have any tips and tricks about blogging? Try and show your personality in your posts, and post what you love.
Have you had any bad/negative experiences on Bookstagram? I have not personally had any bad or negative experiences on Bookstagram. The book community is a very friendly and open group and most readers I encounter enjoy the conversation.
What have you learned from blogging on a public platform like IG? I have learnt about ‘themes’, I have learnt about different types of accounts and about injecting personality into posts.
Do you have any goals that you haven’t yet been able to get to, concerning your account? I really want to start taking more pictures of paperbacks whilst trying to be more creative with my images.
What are some highlights or special moments that have happened, concerning your book blogging career? The first was being asked to do this (completely flattered), the second would be getting the chance to beta read a book for someone, and them adding my name in the dedications in return for my opinions and advice.
Do you think Bookstagram is an effective platform to express your opinion on books? I am a bit advocate for Bookstagram. I love having the freedom to post, and to me it has always felt less judgmental in comparison to other platforms. I think this is due to people only following you if they want to, so they are essentially following because they like what you post, or because you have a shared interest. I am incredibly thankful for the people who like my posts. I have seen so many people do amazing things with their book accounts, and honestly I’m in awe of them all.
What do you use camera vise when taking book photography? Iphone camera
Do you use your own props? Is there a fun or MAGICAL way you set it all up? (loc, props…) I would love to certainly explore things like this, but usually it’s me and my kindle or images that I get supplied.
Do you have advice for new bookstagrammers on how to start, be, and do? (anything goes here) Start because you want to, post what you love and enjoy it.
Do you have any favorite Instagram accounts that you follow for books, inspiration, ideas…? ‘The Guide To Romance Novels’ is my absolute favourite! I love the reviews, the pictures and content. I think your passion for books and your genuine love for the authors is evident in all that you do, and it looks like you have fun with it. I also love James_Trevino, he is just so clever in what he creates and thebookdisciple…just obsessed!
What was the first book you officially bookstagrammed, how about the first book you reviewed and posted on Instagram? The first book I ever posted about was ‘A Little Too Late’ By Staci Hart (amazing book) my first ‘review’ on Instagram was ‘The Fallback’ by Mariah Dietz.
LET’S TALK ABOUT BOOKS
Tell us, do you know the exact amount of paperback you own? How about ebooks? (I suggest not to count because I did & I regretted it) I would honestly be on for days. I once made the mistake of adding up how much money I’d spent on books from amazon in one year…don’t ever do that!
Do you prefer paper or kindle? I love the feel and smell of an old paperback book, but I love kindle books as it saves me from having to find space for another bookshelf in my house.
Do you know your first paperback/ebook? First e-book read would have been Debt and the Doormat by Laura Barnard.
Do you remember your very first read? My first ever ‘proper read’ which I can remember was ‘Alice’s Adventure’s In Wonderland’ by Lewis Carroll, and I can honestly say this is one of my favorites and a book that gave me a passion for reading. I loved it that much my parent’s got a cake for my 30th birthday with the cover on it.
What is it that draws you to a book? (picture, blurb, author..or all?) I am particularly attracted to book covers, I love anything that stands out, or is unusual etc. Once I read a book by an author, if I love their work I will binge read their books for days.
Do you have a favorite genre you read? And which one? I’d have to say Romance all the way. I’m just a sucker for it, love historical romances, angst, chicklit, all of it! I’m just a sucker for love and reading about characters finding their Happy Ever After’s.
What is your ideal bookboyfriend like? (looks, actions…) Interesting question, for me I seem to love the broody heroes in books. They always have dark hair, tall with that chiseled jawline and they are protective of their heroines.
Do you have a real life bookboyfriend? If he is a celeb, book model and so forth, care to share a photo of who? It would have to be Ian Somerhalder, or ‘Smolderhalder’ as I call him :p (I will happily share a picture of him!)
What is your favorite part about a story? (the beginning get to know each other, the sexy scenes, the middle right before the peak…) I love that pivotal moment where a hero or heroine needs to admit their feelings. It just gets me every.single.time.
What book are you currently reading? I am currently reading ‘On The Rocks’ By Kandi Steiner.
Do You have a favorite book quotes from any recent or previously read books you’d like to share? ‘The best kind of love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. That’s what I’d hope to give you forever.’- The Notebook
‘We were still broken, and cracked, and growing and learning. We were mistakes and perfection, flowing steams and hurricanes’ – Eleanor and Grey by Brittainy C. Cherry
How long does it take you to read an average book? I read around my job so about approx. 2 days.
How many reads per week do you think you rea don an average? 4-5 books
Have you ever considered writing a book? If so, why, how, when and who?! Hehe I have written books, but I am terrified of letting anyone other than my close family and friends read them. I have toyed with the idea of a pen name, letting people see snippets to test the water etc, but I guess I worry about negative opinions and how that would affect me.
Who is your favorite author and why? (you’re welcome for this one *smirk*) I am going to have to list them as I couldn’t possibly choose one. I love Deanna Raybourn, Meg Cabot, Melissa Foster, Staci Hart, Kandi Steiner, Katy Regnery and Brittainy C. Cherry (you are lucky I narrowed it down, this could have went on a while)
Now, the real important question -> What is your favorite book & why! Tough question, one of my all-time favorite books which has stuck with me ever since I read it back in January 2018, is ‘On The Way To You’ by Kandi Steiner. It was thought provoking, touching and emotional, and it gave me all the feels whilst breaking my heart and healing it. I could relate strongly to the topic of grief, and it captivated me.
Do you have any magical words for everyone out there?! Do what you love.
STALK THE BOOKSTAGRAMMER
THAT concludes another great SPOTLIGHT! Let’s show her some love, and more to come!
