R E V I E W ➠ Beyond the Game by Kaylee Ryan




BLURB

Paisley
One minute I’m sitting at the ballpark chatting with a handsome stranger, the next his lips are on mine and sparks are flying, while the whole world watches us reach first base on the kiss cam.
As the daughter of a former professional baseball player, I know all too well what it’s like living in front of the lens. Which is why I chose a career behind the scenes and away from the spotlight—that included my love life.
Post-kiss, I never expected to see Cameron Taylor again and certainly not playing for my team. I might want him more than my next breath, but I’m not willing to jeopardize either of our careers to make it to second base.
Cameron
A rare day of relaxing at the ballpark turns out to be so much more. I can’t take my eyes off the gorgeous brunette sitting next to me. The only thing hotter than her perfect pink lips is listening to her talk baseball.
Life throws me a curve ball when I get called up to the majors and Paisley Monroe is introduced to me as the team trainer. She’s unlike anyone I’ve ever met—beautiful, passionate, driven, and off-limits.
When the media goes into a frenzy over our relationship, the rules change. But the love I have for Paisley goes beyond my love of the game, I don’t need the kiss cam to tell the world that she’s mine. I can do that all on my own.

RELEASE DATE: November 9, 2021



Not my first read, I absolutely love Kaylee and she is one of my ONE-CLICK author’s. That said I have read book #1 in this series and after all these years I was so happy to see that Paisley was getting a book!!!!! She is the daughter of Book #1’s H&H. Def read Book #1 I would recommend that highly.

This is a SWOON and INSTA-LOVE on steroids. I loved it even more because of it, there were times where I wanted to shake P and be like takeeeee it, but then I quickly realized even at her age (22) she was very smart for taking things slow and questioning. After all she is the daughter of her all-star ex-Blaze hero. This was very fast pace love, they are both involved in the industry and lines do get crosses but in this case, they are okay to cross as long as they can keep it professional. Mini Cooper happens to live up to everything I expected from him, the fast, the swoon, the sexy and the romance!!

Not my first read in the world but this is a NEW to me author, and so far it’s been getting hard trying to like the new author’s to me in this world because I am so familiar with the world that if it’s off then everything is off for me. This read was not for me.

It was fun, sexy and the insta-love we crave from this world. You get a glimpse of the original characters and watch these two fall in love and handle life together.

R E V I E W ➠ All For You by Jennifer Probst




BLURB

Ariel Devlin is a high-powered advertising executive with ambition and too much stress. Desperate for balance, she enrolls in a yoga school to teach her certain lessons. Breathe. Stay calm. Be in the moment. And ignore her sexy yoga teacher who is becoming a major distraction…
Grant Madison runs a yoga school and lives by one code: don’t get involved with the students. But when Ariel walks into his studio, his resolve begins to crumble. He offers her a deal: a secret affair while in the studio, and the practice of tantric sex in the bedroom. But when lust turns into love, Ariel and Grant are forced to make a difficult choice. Can Ariel reject the career opportunity of a lifetime for the possibility of love? Can Grant ignore his past and take a chance on the future? Or will love be too high a price to pay for both of them?

RELEASE DATE: OCTOBER 21, 2021


“Ask me to stay, Grant.”

-Ariel

Not my first time reading this author, it’s a 50/50 for me with her and I was very excited about this, but unfortunately it was not my favorite. I don’t tend to love the ‘fling’ tropes and I thought well I’ve read this author before and wanted to give it a go. It was a heavy doze of fling and I don’t like it because it tends to be in the fine line of hero or heroine dating or seeing other people. Although this was a quick read and very very steamy I will say that! Also, NO EPLIGOGUE and that kind of made it even worse for me.

We have the hero Grant  a Yoga Instructor and owner of the company and the heroine Ariel who is a normal hard-working woman who only dates suit-guys. In comes Grant who offers her a ‘fling’ with no strings attached, they already have a chemistry between one another, why not indulge. They play on that line a lot of times, it’s exciting new and thrilling to Ariel and even thought it wasn’t easy for her to open up like that, she was starting to really like the outcome. The only thing now is; will they both be able to walk away like nothing ever happened? More like will they be able to step from the hidden into the world together!

R E V I E W ➠ The Nanny and the Hothead by Krista Sandor




BLURB

Charlotte Ames despises hotheads. You know the type. The growly, perma-scowling bully who blows his top at the slightest inconvenience. And her former boss, Top Chef Mitch Elliott, is the king of all hotheads.
How big of a jerk is he? Big enough to make her hurl a salad at the guy.
Those vegetables didn’t ask to be strewn across the floor. But Mitch deserved it!
Is he devastatingly handsome when he loses his cool? Could his stormy blue eyes, flashing with passion, melt the panties right off a gal? That would be a yes. Still, she can’t stand him. And she’d thought she’d seen the last of the culinary creep.
She was wrong.
On the cusp of eviction and with five bucks to her name, she needs a job.
Enter the exclusive Nanny Match Agency and an opportunity to make some real cash.
Sounds great, right? Wrong again!
The universe has one messed-up sense of humor. When she wakes up after a margarita bender and learns she’s become the hothead’s nanny, life goes topsy-turvy! But when the nanny dust settles, she sees another side of the man. A man who might be more than a hothead. A man who gazes at her with such intensity, she can barely keep from combusting.
Don’t fall for the hotheaded chef.
Her head knows what to do. If only she could convince her heart.
Could this nanny match be the match that changes everything, or will it get too hot in the kitchen for the nanny and the hothead?

R E V I E W ➠ Only One Regret by Natasha Madison




BLURB

Cooper
My name came with big skates to fill.
At the top of my game, I had everything I wanted, or so I thought.
Being traded to Dallas was not what I was expecting but neither were the divorce papers I was served.
Now I’m a single dad in a city that isn’t my home.
Erika
Handed my biggest client when I was twenty-two made my dreams come true.
Over time, our work relationship changed, and we grew closer, leaning on each other for support.
He was my rock, my best friend.
Then one drunken night changed everything, and I saw what was in front of me all along.
I just hope that when the dust settles, we won’t regret it. 

RELEASE DATE: October 19, 2021



Not my first read by the author or the series, I have been following this series and the interconnected ones before since the first book & I have loved them all. This one I wasn’t sure what to expect only because I knew who the hero and heroine were to one another. p.s. I’m not sure if this is a warning of good or bad to anyone but there is a lot of SEXY TIMES in this and I mean A LOT!

Let’s begin. The hero and heroine are Cooper the sexy player & Erika his agent but also very best friend in the world. They have been through more than a married couple ever could, through good and the bad, kids, marriage…everything. When Cooper get’s a divorce that was long seen already, Erika is right there to help him through it. Little did she know Cooper never really needed that because in the end things always turn out the way they are supposed to. Cooper is a hot single dad who loves his little girls, the game & also his family. Erika has been around his family from day one and when things turn none of them are shocked, well maybe one person:)

Their chemistry is off the charts in a insta-love I know you type of way. I think I loved the fact that these two were so honest with each other and able to read one another. Cooper is sweet, swoony and a great man all around and Erika, you will fall in love with her from page one. They spend a lot of time together, share everything and even a family vacation that was a lot of fun to read about. You get sucked into their life and won’t want to come out of it!

This is a friends-to insta-love romance that will have you smile, swoon, tear up a little, giggle and wet!! (yeah, I said it)

R E V I E W ➠ Rebel North by JB Salsbury




BLURB

In a city where image is everything, Gabriella turns heads for all the wrong reasons.
The marks that slash across her neck and face turn people away. But I see the beauty that lies beneath, feel a kinship to her pain.
I regret the way she found me—mugged and left for dead. I should walk away, follow the rules, but I can’t. I want to see her again. There’s only one problem.
My brother convinced her I’m gay.
I use that lie to my advantage, persuade her to be my pretend girlfriend, to help protect my fake-sexual identity from my judgmental family. But what starts as a shameless excuse to be near her leads to crossed lines and midnight confessions.
I’m not who I led her to believe. I’m sin wrapped in silk. Betrayal masked by beauty.
And she’s not the only one with scars…

RELEASE DATE: October 26, 2021


My only fear is that in making her forget, she might remember.

– Kingston


Not my first read by the author but she is very new to me, this is only the 2nd book I’ve read by her and boy did I fall in love with this one as much as I did with Book #1! There is something said about the hero and heroine having their own issues that are still lingering when they get together and the chemistry explodes. Also the title makes sense pretty fast and then you realize why and you get excited that it does make sense but also sad for the hero in the same time. This isn’t a typical relationship between hero and heroine. The hero alone has his own share of frailly drama and bullshit along with a personal defect he is dealing with. It honestly isn’t but that is how he sees himself. The heroine isn’t usual as well, she has her own share of drama and daemons except hers is displayed for the world every day. You wouldn’t think that these two would be a pair but broken people heal other broken people. Their chemistry is off the charts, there is humor in this and it will make you chuckle and kind of have angst for the heroine to finally figure it out. ALSO he calls her Bee so there is that! If you could ever FEEL the words this will be that book!

BUT secrets are not meant to be kept. And these secrets are not as expected and even more painful when you get to it all. It’s heartbreaking and bittersweet, I cried multiple times in this and my heart was affected in all aspects! GAH! This book truly moved me, from the characters, the story, the good and bad…truly a addicting book to dive into! P.S. start with Book #1 you will equally love it!

“I’ve thought so long and hard about this moment,” he whispers. “About where I would start if I got the chance to touch you. The roadmaps I’d follow in order to experience every part of you.”

R E V I E W ➠ Finding His Redemption by Melanie A. Smith




BLURB

Kristoffer “West” Westberg is just out of rehab and ready to reclaim his rock-god status. But when his return to fame is threatened by a former fan turned rock magazine writer — and huge critic of him and his band — West is forced to reckon with the reality that he’ll need to prove himself before earning his redemption.
Max Marshall is feisty, a little too honest for her own good, and so not here to babysit a fallen rock star. And nobody has fallen farther in her mind that Kristoffer Westberg. So when she’s forced to catalog his so-called “apology tour,” she has little hope that it’ll be anything but a headache dealing with the entitled, washed-up rock star she used to worship before she knew better.
If West hopes to have a snowball’s chance in hell of changing Max’s — and his fans’ — minds, he’s got some serious groveling to do. Will he manage to fake it till he makes it, or will he be exposed as the lost cause everyone is convinced he is? And will he learn the real meaning of redemption in time to win Max’s trust and her heart?

RELEASE DATE: November 2, 2021



Not my first time reading this author but I have not read a lot to get the vibe yet, now I have with this beauty. I was a little scared to read this only because I am not huge on Rock Star romances, haven’t been able to get into the groove of that. I really did enjoy this one and might even give more of it’s kind a try.

This was a rock star romance trough adn through. Party, Sex, Drugs…all of it. When it all came crashing down and West ends up in rehab, once out he is ready to redeem himself. It’s going to be harder than he thought, after meeting Maxi, he is more determined to redeem himself, she sure make him work for it, part of why I really fell in love with her. Their story isn’t easy but it’s a beautiful one with roads that both characters have to chose to lead…and in the end will it meet the other? I think my favorite part about this book is the whole feel of it, realistic, passionate, emotional and still fun and romantic.

One year later, she’s saved by a shadow organization that believes the law is a joke, and the only person you can count on is you.
After another year, she finally realizes the law’s limitation firsthand when the man that bought her from human traffickers, and then forced her to comply to his every whim for a year, is given a plea bargain for names of others in the operation.

The second he sees the world like she needs him to, there’s not a single thing on the planet that’ll stop him from fighting for her.
Not even the oath he swore to protect and do no harm.

RELEASE DATE: October 5, 2021



Not my first read by the author or last, I have read this author for years and also have read the previous books in this series! All my reviews from this author contain me saying how different she is to me at least, it’s romance but something real, smooth and just easy to read…heartbreaking sure, sizzling yes, but she definitely it’s always a smooth read.

I just want to say that I was super nervous on what to expect, the last one was so heavy on emotion and heartbreak that I wasn’t sure what to expect anymore…Cannel has a rocky past and well present life if we are being honest. Will was the perfect hero to pair with her, because she is chaos and he is safe. This was a equal emotional ride that I am glad I was able to live through because this story as romantic, sweet, dangerous and sexy.

R E V I E W ➠ A Moment for Us by Corinne Michaels


(Willow Creek Valley #3)


BLURB

I was totally over Joshua Parkerson.
Sure, I had a teenage crush on him way back when—and everyone knew it—but he never saw me as anything but his little brother’s friend, the girl who got tongue-tied any time he walked into a room.
I had long ago accepted the fact that his strong arms would never hold me, his lush lips would never claim mine, and his blue eyes would never see me as anything more than who I used to be.
But now he’s back in Willow Creek Valley, and there’s a brand-new spark between us—even he can’t fight it. Our chemistry is explosive, and every time we’re together, I swear I can feel the earth shake.
It doesn’t mean anything… how could it? I’m over him.
Until I see that little pink plus sign, and the earth stops turning completely.
Now I want it all again, a life with him. But Joshua built walls around his heart for a reason, and his secrets haunt him.
How can I show him that the ghosts of his past don’t have to define our new family’s future?

RELEASE DATE: October 5, 2021



Not my first read by the author and not my last. Corinne brought the angst in this one. I am always honest with my reviews and so this one just was not for me. Period. I love Corinne’s book, and have ben lucky so far to really land some amazing reads for me, but there can’t be every single book that I will love and we all know how that works. That said, to me I think it was the whole pull/push between them but still sleeping with one another, it’s a mixture of things including the issue I kept having with the hero because it just was kind of mean and leading on the heroine type of feeling and that was not a fun feeling when I was trying to throw romance into it but I still enjoyed the story and it pulled at my heart strings.

Hero and heroine have known each other for a very long time. Heroine has been deeply in love with hero and he is kind of here nor there, leading her on a little but with reason. Once I found out the heartbreak of all that, I understood him more in that sense. These two truly did play around one another, playing with that imaginary line to cross and then go back and forth. Very emotional, just when you think it’s all butterflies and rainbows Corinne likes to throw a curve ball as always, it’s one of the things I admire about the author. Beautiful story!

R E V I E W ➠ Mama’s Boy by Avery Flynn


(Last Man Standing #1)


BLURB

Top three lies about mama’s boys:
1. That we don’t know what we want. That one is straight up BS. I know exactly what I want—to win this bet with my cousins by any means necessary even if it means finding the worst possible date in all of Harbor City and agreeing to whatever she asks in exchange for her pretending to fall for me.
2. That we are soft, little wimps. Yeah, you don’t get to be CEO of a multibillion dollar company by letting other people take advantage of you. So as soon as I realize my date Fiona Hartigan isn’t exactly who she appears to be, there’s nothing that will stop me from figuring out the truth—no matter how many dates it takes to unravel that mystery.
3. That we don’t know how to kiss. Oh yes we do. The only problem is that once I start kissing Fiona, I don’t want to stop and I have to because we’ve already agreed that all of this is temporary.
Now I’m the guy that every woman wants to bring home to mom—except for the woman I’m fake dating and falling in love with for real.

RELEASE DATE: September 27, 2021



It’s been a minute since I’ve truly dived into a book by this author, she is not NEW to me but it’s been a while. This is a new series and I just knew I had to get on board. Both the blurb & cover is what caught my eye!

Fiona and Dixon were so down to earth real type of characters I forgot I was reading but felt more like I was living the story. When a bet is set Dixon the hero is determined to be the ‘last man standing’ well little did he know fate had other plans and those plans are called Fiona in a form of beautiful, smart and funny! The chemistry between these two, the banter, the romance, the looks…everything just flowed to right and so smooth! I loved watching them go around one another, stick to their guns and also fall for…that was the sweetest and just purest moment.

R E V I E W ➠ Inmate of The Month by Lani Lynn Vale


(Souls Chapel Revenants MC #7)


BLURB

A porn video changed his life.
One second, he has an ex with an ax to grind, and the next, he’s internet famous—and definitely not in a good way. In an, it’ll ruin your career, kind of way.
Only, Laric didn’t know that he was internet famous.
Not until a black-haired beauty walks into his life, and stumbles over every word that she says because all she can picture is him doing the unthinkable for the world to see.
Sadly, that’s not the only thing wrong in his life. His world is messed up, and he likes it that way.
There’s no room for a woman that wants to fix him.
Because fixing requires intimacy, and intimacy isn’t something that Laric does. Not after the life that he’s lived, and the things he’s done to survive. Oh, and let’s not forget the fact that he’s a felon, and he has no regrets about how he got that title.
The last thing he needs in his life is a woman that has her head in the clouds and thinks this world is made of butterflies and confetti.
However, Catori isn’t who she seems.
The day she meets tall, dark, and handsome, he saves her life. And then never leaves—though not for his lack of trying.
Not that she’s complaining about the way they’re thrown together, time after time. She’s more than willing to have a man like Laric around. Mostly because she’s already seen the good in him that he refuses to admit that’s there.
He may be a biker that does questionable things, but in her heart, she knows that he does those bad things for good reasons. And she’s not about to throw away the chance at happiness just because he thinks he knows what’s best for her.
Plot twist: she knows what’s best for her. And that’s him.

RELEASE DATE: September 21, 2021



Not my first read by the author and I have read all the books before in this series! I must say this one was intense, I was hanging on the seat of each page!

The hero in this is a ex-con who was at the right place at the right time. Or so he thought, when there are shots fired he springs into action. The heroine is really fun, outgoing and beautiful. When she watched something for her best friend, it turns out to be the same man that not only occupies her dreams but now is right in front of her. What happens when a heroine sees the hero in a uncompromised intimate way but the hero doesn’t even have a clue what’s going on? Well a whirlpool of fun, danger, smiles, laughter, passion and love!

R E V I E W ➠ Kiss and Don’t Tell by Meghan Quinn




BLURB

Five hockey players, a cabin in the woods . . . and little old me, Winnie Berlin.
Sounds like the start of a fantasy, right? But it’s not. It’s my reality.
It all started when I got lost in the middle of the Canadian Rockies. A wicked thunderstorm sent my car mud sliding into a ditch and for a girl whose survival skills involve finding the nearest Starbucks, I was in deep trouble.
Forced to abandon my car in search of help, I stumbled upon a cabin in the middle of nowhere. Soaking wet, irritated, and in desperate need of a hot shower, I knocked on the door for help only to be greeted by five boisterous, burly, and insanely attractive men.
Not just men.
Professional hockey players.
I hit the motherload of fantasies, right? Wrong.
Because as it turns out, one of them is my ex-boyfriend’s half-brother. And when I end up crashing in their spare bedroom for the night, things take a very unexpected turn.
I’m not sure any amount of survival skills can protect my heart from Vancouver Agitators star goalie, Pacey Lawes. But as long as we kiss and don’t tell, maybe everything will be okay . . .

RELEASE DATE: September 21, 2021



Not my first read by the author although it has been a while since I haven’t had luck with her recently. I jumped on this because the blurb intrigued me and I’ve read the other interconnected books. It may not have been my style 100% but I still enjoyed the read.

This one included a lot of side characters. Then we have the H&H who were very likeable. This is a classic ROM-COM from the author, very sweet this time but still the same. I don’t know what it was exactly that I couldn’t fully get into the book, could have been my mood just but I just found it ‘too much’ and I don’t think I can explain that feeling of mine for this book. Pacey Lawes is the hero, he’s sweet, funny and handsome, Winnie Berlin is the girl who is lost, literary speaking, she is trying to re-find herself and well a little fun never hurt anyone. This is where I think I just couldn’t get fully into it, I like the rom-com aspect and the having some fun but I really was looking for that romance with a little bit of angst or I don’t even know how to explain it so I am going to stop but just SOMETHING stopped me for fully enjoying and being into this book. All aside, I really enjoy the rom-com part of this author, she is really good at it and makes you actually laugh out loud.

R E V I E W ➠ Knot my Type by Evie Mitchell


(All Access #1)


BLURB

He doesn’t do relationships.
She doesn’t do flings.
Everything they thought is about to unravel…
Frankie

When you say you’re a sexologist, people imagine Marilyn Monroe. They don’t expect a woman who uses a wheelchair. As the host of the All Access Podcast, I’m breaking barriers, crushing stigmas, and creating sexual connections that are fulfilling for my fans. I’m like cupid, but with pink hair and fewer diapers.
Only, I’ve hit a snag. A lovely listener wants some advice about accessible rope play and I’m drawing a big fat blank. Which leaves me with no option but to get out there and give it a go.
Which is how I meet Jay Wood—rigger, carpenter, and all-round hottie.
I’d be open to letting him wine and dine me—only Jay isn’t my type. He’s not a one-girl kind of guy. Monogamy isn’t even in his vocab, and I’m not a woman who’ll settle for being second choice.
But the closer we get, the more Jay has me tied up in knots.
And it’s making me think, maybe I could compromise and accept a little Wood in my life. Even if it’s only temporary.
Jay
Frankie’s funny, intelligent, and ridiculously sexy. This should be a no-brainer. A little fun in the sheets, and a little romp with some ropes—simple.
Only the infuriating woman is asking for more. I’m not that kind of guy. I wouldn’t even know how to be that kind of guy. I’m the definition of easy.
It’ll be fine. We’ll be friends. Just friends.
So, why does my heart feel frayed? And why is it I can’t help but consider taking the ultimate leap of faith—tying myself to Frankie. Permanently.

RELEASE DATE: October 4, 2021


“Fuck it.”
I tossed my cell away, closing my eyes as I strocked my dick, desperate to know if the woman who looked like a rainbow would taste of sugar or spice. As I spilled into my hand, one thought solidified.
I need to taste her.


NEW to me author and read! I picked this up because the blurb intrigued me and I really love the cover! That said this is a NEW to me author so it’s always hectic trying to get used to their writing style and so forth. This was definitely a cute read, different from what I am used to reading, more real as in womans-fiction type. We have a heroine that is open, honest and beautiful…she meets the hero when her podcast needs a hands on experience to talk about, and the hero is the perfect man since he already teaches BDSM and KINK classes. But this is a little bit of a twist because they aren’t running to be together as in fate, but just honest that one the heroine needs and wants the relationship but the hero is not good at them and has sworn not to get into it again, but wants to try with the heroine. So their journey is a little backwards and slow burn but in the sweetest way.

I really liked that the author brought out the best of the heroine all while still us getting to experience the ugly side of being the type of disabled the heroine is. She has such a free and open spirit you forget about the fact that she is bound to a wheel chair. The hero really brings out the heroine even more so their duo is dynamic! This read is a mix of woman’s-fiction and contemp romance, so it was a little hard for me to get into it, at times there was a lot happening including a lot of side characters, that’s a down fall for me with this book but aside from that I really loved the idea, story line, H&H and their naughty sweet funny chemistry.

R E V I E W ➠ Beneath the Wreckage by Catherine Cowles


(Wrecked #5)


BLURB

It was supposed to be a summer we’d never forget.
Instead, everything was stolen from me.
The best friend who was more like a sister. The innocent way I looked at life.
Leaving me with only unanswered questions.
Returning to the island is the second chance I didn’t know I needed.
And Hunter is the surprise that knocks me sideways.
There’s a hurt in him that calls to my own.
A strength I find in sharing our scars.
Igniting a spark that turns to flame.
But someone isn’t happy about the world I’m building for myself.
And nothing will stop them from tearing it all apart…

Not my first read by the author and I love her writing style and characters. I also have read the previous books in the series.

This had so much heart that it gives you a glimpse of happiness but then it reminds you of the pain and bam, you get hit! I really loved the H&H together here. The heroine comes back to her old town to take over an old Inn that has seen some better days since her childhood…but it was ‘their dream’ so when she got a chance she packed up and took the challenge. In comes out hero who is a construction owner and really to liking the new owner. This is a sweet slow burn but worth the wait. The memories, the hurt, pain…it was deep in this one! The heroine can’t seem to catch a break when it comes to her new adventure, and the hero is truly a hero!

Friends-to, Sweet Heroine, Handsome Hero, Tragedy, Adventure, Pain, Passion, Romance & Mystery! Really a great combo and a MUST READ! This whole series is highly recommended by me!

TEASER MADE BY ME!

Not my first time by the ladies and I also have read the other 2 in the series & LOVEDDDD them, this series is a MUST READ as well as this book #3, SWOON SWOON SWOON!

The hero is a single-dad pro baseball player. When he moved cities and his 2 most adorable children, he is in need of a Nanny, in walks our beautiful down to earth heroine. The heroine comes from money but has always been paving her own path, humble, beautiful and sweet. When a chance happens where she steps in to be the temp Nanny for the hero’s kids, she falls in love with the kids more than when she got to see them at school where she has been a substitute. They together, gah the heroine’s big heart is so damn beautiful and the way she is with his kids. I do also love her feisty sexy side, the hero really steps it up with the SWOON SEXY-ness…yes I made that word up and it now exists!

It had some interesting twist and turns not going to lie, I did not see that going the way it did regarding the hero, I may also have been a little mad at him in the end, luckily he redeems himself but I def would have still held a tiny grudge about his behavior. But I really really enjoyed this read and knew it would be amazing as this series is!

Sports Romance, Single Dad who is SWOONY to the max, Sweet Heroine & Twists, Lies, Truths, Romance & Passion!
