The Reluctant Boyfriend cover.jpg

Princess Gone Wild!

When Princess Rosalina discovers her fiancé cheating on her, she’s done being dutiful. Jumping on a plane, she lands five thousand miles away in a world of hot cowboys, jean skirts, and tequila. Grabbing her chance to fly under the radar, she plans on acting out every single fantasy she’s denied herself while trying to meet the expectations of her family and country.

Brodie Bowie doesn’t know what happened. One minute he’s wreaking havoc and tearing up the slopes with his brothers, and the next he’s an outsider. All of them are in serious relationships. He just can’t figure out why they’d put a ring on it when there’s so much fun to be had as a single man.

Brodie’s not the settling down type, but then he’s never met anyone like the woman who jumps in front of his bulldozer, refusing to let him dig up his meadow. The feisty chemist and perfumer is everything he never knew he wanted.

Except she only wants a summer fling before she goes back to her real life . . . as a princess.

He doesn’t fit in her world, and there’s no way she can live in his.

But a love like theirs doesn’t play by the rules.

New Release + Blog Tour + 4.5 Star Review: The Guy On the Right by Kate Stewart

 

We’re celebrating the release of THE GUY ON THE RIGHT by Kate Stewart! Fall in love with Theo and Laney today!

 

 

Strike one – My mother named me Theodore after her favorite chipmunk.

Not cool, Mom.

I’ve spent most of my life answering to Teddy, because I couldn’t make Theo work.

Except for here. College. The place where all bets are off, and I’ve managed to redeem myself. There’s only one problem, my new roommate, Troy, is football royalty, and looks like he stepped off the set of an Abercrombie shoot.

Doesn’t matter, I cook a mean breakfast for his panty parade, and we get along well. And anyway, this year I got the girl. And she’s perfect.

That’s right. Theodore Houseman, former band geek, now marching band rock star has finally landed the girl of his dreams.

Everything is perfect.

That is, until Troy takes a good look at her.

I’m not going down without a fight. As a matter of fact, I’m not going down at all. As glorious as these days may be for my all-star roommate, Laney is my end game.

I may not know much about play strategy, but I’ve been the good guy my whole life. I’ve been listening and I know exactly what women want. Framed in a picture standing next to me, Troy may seem like Mr. Perfect, but he’s underestimating the guy on the right.

Spoiler alert: In this story, the underdog is going to win…

Tracey’s Review

Maybe it’s that I read an awful lot, or maybe it’s just that I’m waaaaay past that stage in life, but I find that New Adult/College romance typically resonates less with me. That being said, this book right here proves that not all things of a type are equal. And maybe it’s due in part to the fact that an underdog story will win my heart most every time, but, whatever the reason, THE GUY ON THE RIGHT by author Kate Stewart is a win for me.

There is nothing in this world that would say that Theo and Laney should be a good fit. I mean, truly, it’s just the old, old story of the great guy being ‘friend zoned’ because he’s the absolute best, the funniest, the most fun to be around, a great partner in crime, you name it, but he’s just not quitethe leading lady’s “type.” So, while these two get on like the proverbial house on fire, well, Laney’s got him firmly in the position of male bestie, much to Theo’s long-suffering dismay.

But, we know how things go, when, after looking at a person in one way, one day you wake up and, BOOM, everything’s different. Sometimes all it takes is time together, getting to know someone really, really well, and letting them get to know you, warts and all. And, in the case of Laney, who has a long and storied history of falling for the pretty boy, this is the case.

Kate Stewart has written a book that is funny and sweet, and with a great message: do not, whatever you do, underestimate the “other” guy. You know, that guy, the one that’s always around, always makes you laugh, the one that you can count on no matter what…the guy on the right. This one will make you smile, laugh, and remember what a good rom-com is all about. Make sure it’s on your TBR and enjoy.

He’s a hockey star with a headboard full of notches. She’s a shy NHL concession worker at who’s never been kissed.

Lindy

They don’t call me Belinda Boring for nothing. It’s my name, after all. And for a 23-year-old with plain brown hair who still lives at home and gets tongue tied over nothing, it’s a fitting one. I’m not even one of those quiet girls with a hidden talent, unless making a mean order of nachos at the NHL arena I work at counts. My life consists of working, reading and harboring a secret crush on a hockey player who doesn’t know I exist. At least, until we accidentally meet and become unlikely friends.

Victor

I’m living the dream. A poor kid who worked his way into the NHL, I’ll never forget where I came from, though I try to. My past follows me, a nagging reminder that I’ll never be what everyone thinks I am. As the threat of my secret being exposed looms closer, my game slips, leaving me in danger of being cut from my team–the only family I have. I’m losing my hold on everything when a new friend helps me find hope. She’s nothing like the women I’m used to, but by the time I figure out that’s exactly why she’s right for me, I’ve lost my chance with her. Somehow, I have to convince a woman who thinks she’s invisible that she’s the only one I see.

Michel’s Review

Wow… Wow… Wow… The Heartache Duet is my 2019 Favorite!

The Heartache Duet by Jay McLean is one of those stories which stands out among other the releases in the romance and YA genres. It is more than an angsty mature YA romance, it’s a story of family, friendship, and the beauty of the human spirit. It’s a story about dealing with heartache and circumstances beyond our control without losing hope. A story where basic human compassion goes much further than grand gestures. A story that shows the magic in the little moments is just as important as the monumental steps that change our lives. After all … the magic appears when the world seems the darkest but it also appears when it’s least expected.

First and Forever by Jay McLean is the highly emotional, explosive conclusion in the Heartache and Hope Duet.

Heartache and Hope ended on a huge cliffhanger. Ava and Connor had broken up. Connor was conquering the basketball court and chasing his dream. He has became an All American Allstar athlete, gotten a full ride scholarship to Duke, and has scouts knocking on his doors. He’s pushed himself beyond his limits, not for himself but for Ava. He wants to be able to give her the help her family desperately needs. He wants to be able to provide a future for both of them. But first he needs to win Ava back and show her she isn’t alone.

Ava was trying to hold onto what was left of her family life. The responsibility of caring for her mother has become more difficult. Her mother’s mental health is affecting her physical health. The health care options have became more limited in an already sparse situation. Her step- brother Trevor has sacrificed his future to help hang onto their family. Things are spiraling downhill fast. They have exhausted every avenue available. Their situation is dire and her mother is disappearing into oblivion.

Ava and Connor have a love that’s worth fighting for. They have both suffered. They have both learned a little bit of magic in the darkest moments goes a long way. But is it enough to keep them together? Just when they think they have it figured out, Ava’s mom takes a turn for the worst and her world begins to fall apart. She’s afraid she will take Connor down with her. At the same time, Connor’s nightmares and past have resurfaced. rather than leaning on Ava or his family for support, he tries to handle the situation by himself.

They are both getting torn apart emotionally and don’t know how to cope with it. Their lives have spiraled out of control once again. This time they can’t fix it. Graduation is around the corner and Ava’s life has hit the dead end.

Can they find their way back to each other? Their family lives and secrets will never go away. They just need to learn how to manage their lives with what they have. They have to learn that love is what keeps hope alive.

Wow… the Heartache Duet by Jay McLean is one of the best stories I have read in quite awhile. Not only does Jay deliver an emotional, heart wrenching romance but she also focuses on important issues and how they affect people’s lives. She brought attention to ongoing problems in healthcare for seriously wounded VETs, the lack of support from the community, the limited long term medical benefits, and the inadequate care for mental health issues. She also showed how child abuse can scar a person for life even though they have had a stable home, supportive family love, and the right kind of counseling. She also showed how people make sacrifices for their families. Trevor and Connor’s father both put their families first over their own personal happiness. They were true heroes in my opinion. Not only did Jay show the emotional effects it had on the family but also their friends. The Heartache and Hope Duet displayed every kind of love a human being can experience and that is where the true MAGIC is.

I highly recommend The Heartache and Hope Duet.

Frat House Confessions: Ridge by Bethany Lopez

AVAILABLE NOW

Contemporary Romance

Synopsis:

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.

EXCERPT:

Ridge:

I was sitting there, chuckling and shaking my head, when I felt someone come up next to me and pat me on the arm. 

I looked up and to my right to see Caitlyn, one of the Delta groupies, standing there with an armful of clothes and a smile. 

Hey, Ridge, hows it going?she asked.

My eyes flitted to the closed dressing room door, before coming back to rest on Caitlyn. Wed hooked up a couple times, but when shed tried to move us toward a relationship, Id quickly put a stop to it. 

Not only did I not do relationships, but Caitlyn was almost as entitled as I was, and I needed someone who was a little more grounded. Whod put me in my place and not let me walk all over them. Someone whod call me on my shit and not get offended when I called them on theirs. 

A mental picture of Karrie popped in my head, but I ignored it. Karrie and I would never work. First of all, she was hung up on her asshole ex, and second of all, she was simply a means to an end. 

Not at all girlfriend material.

Guilt slammed through me at that stray thought, but I ignored it and answered the girl hovering over me. 

Cant complain,I answered, intentionally not continuing the conversation in hopes that shed get the hint and leave me alone. 

I looked back down at my phone.

I heard Deltas planning a rager for after Homecoming something about making over girls into the perfect Delta groupies. Crush should have asked me to come be an example, not Bella. Ive been hanging with Deltas for the last four years,she continued with a pout.

I sighed and brought my gaze back up to her face. 

It was Crushs deal, Caitlyn, Im not involved in his shit.

She smirked and replied, Thats not what I heard. Word on the street is you picked a girl for a makeover, too. Drakes girl.

Word on the street?I scoffed, standing up and stretching, and shooting her a bored expression. Your source is wrong. Karrie is more to me than a game Crush is playing with the rushes. And, shes not Drakes girl Shes mine.

Just then, the changing room door swung open, and Karrie walked out wearing a tight-fitting tube dress that showed off her curves, leaving little to the imagination. By the sweet grin on her face, and the way she crossed to me and put her arm around my waist, tucking into my side, I knew shed heard everything Caitlyn and I had said. 

Hey, babe,she cooed, pulling me tight. I hope Im not taking too long.

I looked down at her upturned face and felt my heart accelerate. 

Youre worth the wait,I said softly, my eyes falling to her lips as I remembered our kiss. 

Aww, youre so sweet,Karrie said, turning her attention to Caitlyn and repeating, Isnt he so sweet?

The sweetest,Caitlyn replied, her tone implying I was anything but. 

And you are?Karrie asked, one hand resting on my abs, causing me to flex. 

Caitlyn.

Hi, Caitlyn, Im Karrie, Ridges girlfriend.

I would have laughed at the shocked look on Caitlyns face, but I was too busy enjoying the feel of Karries hand on me. I found myself wishing there was no barrier between that hand and my bare skin. 

Caitlyn recovered and let out a disbelieving laugh. 

Ridge doesnt date,she said, like she knew the first fucking thing about me. 

Well, thats obviously not true.

Caitlyn looked to me, as if expecting me to prove her right and call Karrie a liar. 

Instead I wrapped my arms around her and kissed the top of her head. 

I never saw a reason to date, then I met Karrie.

Caitlyns eyes narrowed, and I knew she was pissed, like Id just said she wasnt good enough for me.

Which, honestly, was true.
