Almost Perfect
Author: Claudia Burgoa
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Comedy
Release Date: January 16, 2020

AlmostPerfect FOR WEB

BLURB

USA TODAY bestselling author Claudia Burgoa brings readers a delightful new romantic comedy that’s equal parts hilarious and sexy about friendship and learning how to fall in love!

Olympic medalist and X-game sensation Alex Spearman thinks he’s perfect.

He’s not. I know his kind.

Rich, famous, and emotionally unavailable.

Well…He’s perfect enough to hook up with on the weekend of his sister’s wedding.

His sister is my best friend. This is a disaster in the making.

Did I mention he’s also hot, sexy and funny?

How can I resist?

After a steamy weekend, I agree. We have chemistry.

But it just won’t work out in the long run.

He’s just a fond memory. That is…until he moves next door.

When I’m in need, the almost perfect man offers to help.

On a “friends-only” basis.

“Just friends,” he said. Yeah, right.

Suddenly, Alex is getting too close for comfort.

Things are becoming heated … becoming too real for me.

Is this the real deal or am I another medal to him?

Happy couple near the Eiffel tower

EXCERPT

“Harry Potter geek?”
She nods. “Dad and I used to read the books when I was young. It’s our thing, you know? We share our love for mythical creatures and magical worlds.”
She smiles widely. “When I was at my mother’s, I used to read the books by myself and wished I was at Dad’s instead.”
“So now you get to wear a unicorn necklace and look like a fairy?”
Suddenly, I see darkness pushing her bright face. She grabs the handle and starts closing the door. “Thank you again for everything.”
“I’m supposed to stay with you and binge watch a series or just watch a rom-com,” I say, showing her my arm where I scribbled my notes.
Her expression smooths, and her lips slip into a charming grin. Her mouth is framed by a pair of inviting dimples that enchant me.
“So tell me about this first day,” I ask. “We could share some of the chocolate chip cookies I got you.”
She steps aside, inviting me in. “First experiences suck most of the time.”
“First kisses never suck,” I tell her.
“Of course they do,” she protests with conviction.
I brush a strand of her hair, leaning forward. “There’s always that little moment of hesitation. When everything is almost happening. Like, right when you’re about to touch her lips,” I say, my lips are so close to hers. “You wait though.”
“What do you wait for?” she asks with sweetness and innocence.
“For her to step back or lean into the kiss.”
“What if she doesn’t move?”
“That’s my favorite,” I answer before I brush her soft lips with mine.
She gasps as I dip my mouth to hers. This is pretty much like going down the slope at high speed. I can’t stop, I can’t hesitate. One wrong move and it’s a bust. I have to control every movement, lead her. Lean where I want us to go. I slide my tongue across her lips, and she opens them while she wraps her arms around my neck.
I don’t rush it though. If this is the only kiss I get from Hannah, I want it to be perfect. My heart hammers as our kiss leads to more than just demonstrating to her that a first can be extraordinary.
The small whimper she makes as I slide my hand around her waist and pull her into me gets me worked up. I hold nothing back, and she doesn’t either. I move my lips to her jawline, nibbling her soft skin all the way to her earlobe.
She tastes sweet. Like lavender, vanilla, and honey. I could eat her. Nibble every inch of her skin, drink her all.
As she pushes her hips up against me, trying to get closer, my eyes open. Our gazes connect. I want to consume her. All of her. The pain from climbing the tree is gone, replaced by desire—a hunger I’ve never come across before.
I run a hand through the back of her neck, my fingers curl around her skull, gripping her head tightly.
“Waiting?” she asks between shallow breaths.
I nod. “You’re in charge, do you want me to continue?”
She rises on her tiptoes, leaning closer. This time, I devour her. Our tongues tangle and fuck if the fire isn’t consuming us.
Lust and adrenaline rush through my veins. I run a hand up and down her round, tight ass. My length is turning into a piece of steel. Throbbing, needy steel that wants to slide inside her. A sexy moan escapes her lips as I move between her thighs and push her against the door.
Her legs wrap around my hips, and anything besides fucking her is off the table. There’s no restraint. For her, or for myself.
I break the kiss, gasping for some air. “Are you sure about this?”
“I have this theory,” she says. “Being with a guy for the first time being awkward and meh. Do you want to prove me wrong?”
“Challenge accepted.”

Almost Perfect by Claudia Burgoa is the perfect combination of  a frenemies romance and forbidden love with his sister’s best friend. Add in a few more ingredients such as another Spearman sibling and daughter of  Kaden Hades- famous rock star (My One Regret) and it makes the flavoring all the better. The magic ingredient is Claudia Burgoa’s  ability to spin an entertaining, emotionally charge romance that keeps readers glued to the pages.

Hannah Hades has grown into an incredible woman. While she is just as sweet as she was when she was a child, she is also a bit jaded and emotionally cautious due to her emotional scars from her mother in childhood and past romantic experiences. When she meets Alex Spearman, she’s not quite sure how to handle him. She doesn’t want a relationship, she hates his assumed arrogance but she can’t seem to stay away. He’s a champion in the bedroom, a fun companion, and he’s willing to take on her cat. The best thing about Alex is he’s willing to take her on.

Alex Spearman may be an olympic athlete but he is also a man who carries his own scars. Losing his professional athletic career because of an accident has left him a bit lost. His business is thriving, his sister is managing his professional life with ace precision  but there is something big missing. When he meets Hannah he knows she’s the answer. She keeps pushing him away and he’s determined to win her over. He’s an olympic champion, he has faced easier competitors than Hannah and won. Alex has accepted the challenge to win Hannah’s heart.

Claudia Burgoa once again delivered a fun and delightful romance that kept me thoroughly involved until the very end.

Genre: Holiday Romance
Cover by: Hang Le
Release Date: November 7, 2019

This holiday season, there’s more than gingerbread in the oven.

I was always a type-A kind of girl— and that’s exactly what got me into trouble with Sterling Ahren.

Having a baby before thirty didn’t work out, so I took some time off to sort out my life. Sterling’s my new landlord… and he doesn’t plan anything.

He’s a billionaire playboy who can’t stand the holidays. A recluse of the worst kind, Sterling makes Scrooge look like a generous soul… except Ebenezer was never this sexy.

He doesn’t want a family— until the night we have a spontaneous one-night stand, and forget to use condoms. I can’t have a baby with a disorganized, free spirit like him. Between my overprotective brothers and his crazy fans, I already know this isn’t going to work out.

Except Sterling isn’t willing to let me go. He wants me home for the holidays… and this is my last chance to make a Christmas miracle happen.

One thing I know for sure: when Sterling and I collide, it’s going to be anything but a silent night.

Funny, touching, and delightful, this smoking hot billionaire holiday rom-com by Claudia Burgoa will make you feel the magic of Christmas.

Excerpt

“Juniper Spearman, what the fuck are you doing here?” I hear Jackson’s voice and there’s a loud banging on the door. “June, open up. I know you’re there, open the fucking door.”

“Who is that?” Sterling asks, gasping for breaths.

“June, I can’t stop him for too long.” I hear Alex’s voice. “Open up, Junie bee.”

I grunt. “My brothers,” I say, untangling myself from him. “Are you ready?”

Ever since we were kids, Jack has always known when I borrow his things without permission. I knew going into his garage might trigger some camera. He has a tight security system. To top it all, I stole his Internet connection.

But hey, I needed my equipment and a faster Internet connection. Sterling’s slows down when we stream movies.

What’s the best way to keep myself connected while we are lounging?

I hooked up my electronics to his Internet.

It’s Jackson’s fault. The guy always brags about it being so powerful he can connect to it even if he’s hiking a couple of miles away from his property. Well, the geek is right. I’m less than a mile away from his home and I’ve been taking advantage of it.

He’s in the city, after all. He won’t notice until he comes back and hopefully by then, I’ll be gone.

“I thought you had bodyguards to take care of unwanted company,” I growl, marching toward the door.

He snorts. “I’m sure they know and that’s why they’re letting your brothers do whatever they want—to interrupt me.”

We walk to the main door and what do we find?

Not one, but three very annoying Spearman brothers glaring at me—and Sterling.

“Juniper?” Jackson crosses his arms.

“Jackson?” I cross mine too and give him the glare. He might be taller, older, and meaner but I’m not letting him treat me like I’m five years old. “Do I go to your house and bang on the door at odd hours of the day? Mom will be disappointed with your manners.”

“This isn’t your house,” he corrects me. “And it’s three o’clock.”

Sterling surprises me when he says with a firm voice. “It is her house.”

We all turn to look at him. I’m totally dumbfounded by his answer.

“I like you, Spearman, but watch your tone.” He looks at my brother darkly.

“I thought we were friends, man,” Alex says with disappointment. “You’re breaking the bro-code.”

“Seriously, June,” Jason says with a tone of disappointment and brushes some strands of my hair. “At least fake it.”

I open my mouth to protest but stop myself. Saying I look like shit because I’ve been puking all day is going to open the can of worms I want to keep closed for a few more weeks—months even. Maybe I’ll have the babies and tell them about it when they turn four or eighteen.

“Not to interrupt this amusing family reunion, but it’s cold as fuck outside and she’s not wearing a jacket,” Sterling says, pulling me into his arms. “How can I help you, gentlemen?”

“Let’s go home, June,” Jackson orders.

Sterling turns to me, his eyes soft. “Do you want to leave?”

I shake my head.

“You heard the lady. She’s with me,” Sterling barks back. “She’s also not your property to order around.”

Butterflies fluttering and all aside, I compose myself. Because no one wants to speak with a puddle of mush, and say, “I came with him and will leave with him.”

“Mom doesn’t know where you are,” Jackson starts nagging. “She’s freaking out because she went to visit you and your neighbor said you’re out of town. The first thing she did was call me because I’m responsible for you when our parents are out of town.”

“Jason.” I appeal to the one who isn’t as possessive.

“You know I love you and I support you,” he says. “But this wasn’t cool. At least text me your whereabouts. What’s going on with you? I heard you’re selling your company.”

“You took the month off,” Alex adds. “What if I need you?”

“This is so unlike you,” Jackson says frustrated. “I get it from Jeannette but you …”

“Me what, Jackson? Just because I decided to change my life that doesn’t mean I’m a failure. You changed yours, just like Jason did. I can’t search for my own happiness?”

He frowns and closes his mouth tight.

Michel’s Review
Once Upon A Holiday by Claudia Burgoa is the perfect holiday romance to begin the festive season.  The devout fans of Claudia’s books are in for a holiday treat when two charismatic secondary characters from several books find love in Denver, CO over the holiday season.  For those readers new to Claudia Burgoa, Once Upon A Holiday is the perfect introduction to her fantastic writing.
*
Junie Spearman has made a life altering decision. She is a strong independent woman with a successful career, a striving business, and a great sense of self awareness. Her biological clock is ticking and personal health issues fill her with an urgency to start a family. Rather than waiting for a man or a miracle, she is taking matters into her own hands. She is gearing down her professional obligations and revving up her personal life for a new baby in the new year.  One last one night fling with a sexy hot stranger over the Thanksgiving holiday is the perfect way to blow off some steam and give her one last spontaneous adventure.  Little does she know her holiday’s are about to get busier than she anticipated and a lot more festive.
*
Sterling Ahern has always been a lone wolf living a life of seclusion in the midst of the hectic city of Denver. His notoriety and fame from being a world class artist has forced him to live behind the scenes, behind his bodyguards, and away from loved ones. When he meets a woman who makes him want more, makes him want to step out of the shadows, the only thing he can do is enjoy the spontaneity on their holiday tyrsts.
*
Both Junie and Sterling are going to learn that sometimes fate takes a hand and throws away their perfect lists, their imperfect structured lives, and gives them the best gift of all. Fate gives them the gift of love and family. Who knew some gifts don’t come in packages but in bursts of unforgettable moments of the heart.
*
Claudia Burgoa once again pulled me with her writing. Her ability to create beautifully flawed, dynamic characters and give them the purest gift of the heart in written words is amazing. I always walk away from a Claudia Burgoa novel with a smile on my face and a warm heart!
*
Once Upon A Holiday by Claudia Burgoa is a festive celebration of love.

Author: Claudia Burgoa

Release Date: October 3, 2019

 

Blurb
Men and women can be friends.

At least that’s what I’ve been telling myself since George walked into my life.

We bicker as much as we have each other’s backs.

We’re inseparable.

So, she left to find herself and I feel like I can’t breathe without her.

It’s okay, it’s only temporary.

But when she walks back into my life, it’s on the arm of a stranger.

Her fiancé.

Seriously, I just realized I’m in love with her and she’s engaged?I have six weeks to convince George we’re meant to be together—not only in the
kitchen or be forced to watch her marry another man.

Time is running out, and soon, she’ll be gone from my life.

I’m risking everything, will that be enough?

Someday, Somehow is a sexy romantic comedy that’s
equal parts funny and flirty. 
Made of Honor clashes with When Harry Met Sally in a
sweet and seductive love story of hopeful hearts and second chances.

Excerpt

EXCERPT

 

“A junior invited me,” Megan said excitedly. “It might be the party of the year.”

Party?

It looks like Union Square during New Year’s Eve.

What is everyone waiting for?

This party wasn’t worth the three-mile walk from our dorm to here.

The cheap alcohol tops it all. I didn’t get drunk with the first sip of a screwdriver; I got a massive headache. This isn’t for me. The circle of girls gossiping about everything as they wait to be swooped by some guy—not my scene.

Haven’t we done this for the past twelve hours? Chat about nonsense. This is why I don’t have many friends. I was too busy with my extracurricular activities that I skipped socializing 101. Give me a good book to read. A movie to watch or a marathon on TBS or Nick at Nite to keep me up all night.  I suggest we leave, and what does roommate-dearest say in response? “I’ll find you a place to crash.”

The bedroom is dark but clean. I grab a sweatshirt and even a bear I find on the floor. It only takes a few seconds for me to fall asleep. It is quiet, smells of sandalwood and pine, and the sheets are soft.

I miss home.

Everything is going well until the guy from the coffee shop wakes me up. I swear it feels like a dream. A nightmare. But after we talk, I realize he’s not as bad as I thought. He’s one of the good guys but likes to pretend he’s anything but.

His food…who knew eggs could taste this great? In exchange for yet another plate, I could offer to fix the light fixtures. This place is off code.

And there I go, thinking like my father. Instead of teaching me construction, he should’ve taught me how to socialize. I wish my aunts had been around more often during my teenage years. I’d be a little cooler, or at least I’d know how to make friends easily.

Auggie takes the empty plate from my hands and offers me some milk. I nod, that sounds better than whatever they’re serving upstairs.

“It must be hard moving away from all your friends and family,” he says.

I shrug and smile. I don’t make friends easily. Well, actually, I don’t make friends at all. Dad and I have always been on the run. Running to school, running to a construction site, running to tae kwon do, running to the grocery store…

There’s never time to exchange more than a greeting and a weak how are you before I have to go again.

During my spare time I help Dad around the house or at work. If I do the latter, it pays for my knickknacks, and I get to spend time with him.

“It’s just Dad and me,” I remind him.

“Any other family?”

“Mom’s family faded away after she died. Dad’s sisters stepped up, but now they have their own families, so during my teenage years it was just the two of us.” I drink some of the milk he poured me.

“Grandparents?”

“How about you?” I fire back without answering his question. And study him.

He’s not as bad as I thought earlier. In fact, he’s very nice. And good looking. Tall, mussed-up, dark hair, hazel eyes. Black t-shirt hugging his lean and defined muscles. There’s a playful tug at the corner of his mouth, and I see a dimple forming on the left side of his cheek.

He turns me on, but he’s he and well, I’m me.

5Star
Michel’s Review
     Claudia Burgoa has fallen under a special magical star that has transformed her already excellent writing talent to a whole new level.  Her last few books have been romantic perfection.
***
.
     I absolutely loved Someday Somehow because I could easily identify with both Georgie and Auggie on some many levels.  We all have that special friend that means more than words could describe. This special kind of friendship is a safety zone where anything can be said or done without judgement and complete support.
***
     Auggie and Georgie met in college and decided they needed a best friend rather than a one night stand or coed fling. This friendship survived attempted dating endeavors, the pressures of academic success, the floundering of finding the right kind of career that will fit for years, family expectations, and dreams for the future. The one thing they took for granted was each other until it was almost too late.  They both realized their love for one another at the wrong times and neither knew how to express the real feelings in their heart. It will take a sabbatical in Europe, an abrupt career change, a creative culinary challenge, and complete focus before they find their happily ever after.
***
     Claudia Burgoa captured the perfect friendship floundering to find true love. She brought her characters, both Georgia and Auggie to life through their passions in cooking. They expressed themselves by creating the perfect dish for every emotional moment. Love is hard enough to express with words but even harder when it could ruin the perfect friendship.  They both had to recognize their own personal weakness and learn to deal with them by themselves. They had to fix themselves first.
***
Claudia Burgoa created my favorite kind of romance with friendship to lovers theme. I loved every aspect of Someday Somehow.

The first time I met Oliver Tanner he was five years old.

I was four.

That day he was entrusted to my keep.

He was as large and loud as a church mouse.

That day I taught him how fireflies were magic with the persistence of a person.

That’s what I loved about them.

No matter how far they strayed,

they remembered where they came from and who their family was.

After high school, he joined the army and left Knox Ridge.

Years later, the town had changed.

My dreams were shattered.

We had nothing left.

I had forgotten all about the magic of the fireflies.

Until he came back to town.

Everything about him was comforting.

He brought some light to my darkness,

But I knew the light could only last for so long.

Fireflies only stay for the summer.

He had outgrown our small town.

It was time for me to stop chasing fireflies.

This full-length novel was originally published in the Cards of Love collection as a novella. It has been revised with additional scenes.

EXCERPT:

I decide to bring up Ollie, preferring to deal with that than the topic of my sister.

“Did you hear that Oliver Tanner is back in town?”

She squints. “Why does that name sound familiar?”

“Josey Tanner’s son,” I say, unamused by her attitude.

Paige wrinkles her nose. “Little Ollie AWOL? Showing his face back here? That idiot?”

I hate when she refers to him as that. I hold back a frustrated groan. I don’t need more reminders of how he left me here—embarrassed and heartbroken.

It’s not like they were friends or anything, I think sarcastically. Then again, she’s always the first person to remind me that he broke my heart—twice.

“Yeah, that one,” I say dryly, regretting the subject. “He’s staying at the old Tanner place while he decides what to do with his life.”

“He’s going to f*** up my hydrangeas, isn’t he?” Paige says.

“So not the point,” I say.

“Is he as hot as I remember him?” she asks.

I smirk. Oliver is good looking. He has tousled brown hair, which is thick and lustrous. His eyes are a mesmerizingly deep brown, and flecks of amber light dance throughout them. Like fireflies. His face is strong and well defined. His features look like they were molded from granite. He has thick eyebrows, which slopes downward in a severe expression.

My stomach does a few flips as I remember his playful smile. My body shivers, remembering the tingles that his strong hands created when they touched me. They were rough but warm. And when those beefy arms wrapped around my body, it felt perfect.

His body was toned and inviting as he hugged me. Everything about him was comforting. His voice was deep and rich. We saw each other a couple of days ago, but I’m still thinking about him.

Michel’s Review

Chasing Fireflies by Claudia Burgoa is one of my favorite books she has written. This coming of age romance spans over twenty years of family, friends, life, and love. It captures the complete untainted innocent hearts of children to the jaded, weary hearts after life has reared it’s ugly side. Through it all the the strength of family and friendship is the glue that holds Kaitlyn Blythe and Oliver Tanner together. Their story begins at the precious age of four and five, when popsicles on lazy summer days and chasing fireflies are the most important things to do in Knox Ridge, GA.

Small towns like Knox Ridge hold more than southern charm, they hold a history of generations of families and friends sharing their lives with one another. These towns hold their secrets close to heart but share their generous souls with generations. Knox Ridge is the heartbeat for generations of Blythes and Tanners.

Kaitlynn and Ollie have known each other all of their lives. They became friends when Ollie’s mother moved in next door to the Blythe family home. The moment they met they were destined to share their lives. From the childhood innocence to the angsty teenagers, both Kaitlynn and Ollie grew up depending on one another until Kaitlynn’s sister stepped in and changed it all. It sent them both in directions in life, away from Knox Ridge. It will take years for them both to find their way home and back to one another. Good things are worth waiting for and the magic in chasing fireflies is still there. Kaitlynn and Ollie both need that special magic to soother their weary souls. They need each other.

Without saying too much more about the content of the book I will say that this book was alsolutely magical. Ollie and Kaitlynn came to life and jumped off the pages. Their magical fireflies illuminated their story and made their lives special.

“Fireflies knew how to call each other back home”
