My Review

Are you Puckin’ kidding me!! I knew before I even cracked the first page I was gonna love this book. I mean HELLO!ย  Itโ€™s my BTU crew baby! ๐Ÿ˜ Hot Hockey players, coven conversations. This entire cast of loyal and amazing friends, really theyโ€™re more like actually extended some non-blood family. The bonds between these BFFโ€™s and BFFLโ€™s are not only hilarious and crazy,ย  but sweet and protective and just absolutely perfect!ย ย 

When you read a love story from one of the BTU crew just know your in for a wild smash up of what feels like a little bit of the best parts of national lampoons anything, the jersey shore, the amazing race, and maybe a bit ofย  the bachelor (cause their dates be bomb yโ€™all.)ย 

IT’S EVERYTHING Y’ALL

Jase and Melodyโ€™s story was all I could have hoped for and more. It was sweet and yummy. It gave me goosies. But boy oh boyย  did it make me fan myself too.๐Ÿ”ฅ It gave me some drama and some angsty feels. I just predicted we were heading a certain way about โ…” in and I was worried. (I wasnโ€™t wrong) in my guess. I was just concerned about how this all would play out.ย 

I mean  I have loved Jase since Power Play. JDโ€™s twin is a spectacular species to gander at ladies,  but heโ€™s also a total sweetheart. He loves his family, his friends and heโ€™s so talented on the ice itโ€™s unreal. 

BTW I loved his wooing ways! (Wonโ€™t say more but gah!! ๐Ÿ˜)

Melody Brighly was a Star. She lit up a room and Jase noticed her right away. Now her upbringing in comparison to Jaseโ€™s was polar opposites, but I love how she fell as hard for his family as she did for him. I know the secrets sheโ€™d been keeping were weighing on her. Jase worked hard to break down her resistance and they were perfect together. Like mashed taters and gravy.ย 

When the secrets started unfolding, I was as devastated as all the characters were. I cried yโ€™all! These two were precious! I needed them to make it, and the thought of something happening to de-rail that is terrifying. I love how with each chapter we see our H and h both unselfishly sacrifice things for the other out of love. I was on the edge of my seat, tears in my eyes, waiting, praying, crossing toes, eyes and fingers. Whatever was necessary in hopes for my babies to work it out!! In tru Alley fashion,(*pause while I drink wine straight from bottle*) she made us sweat it for a minute before bringing us all back together again!!ย 

Totally Alley โฌ†๏ธ

It was worth it. I would do it to myself all over again! On purpose!!ย 

โญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญโญ- BTU crew is in the house bae-bay!! So this was ah-may-zing!! I flew through because I just couldnโ€™t help myself. These are my people. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ˜

๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ-  Jase is hot beyond all reasoning! Melody and Jase together weโ€™re just over the top flaming hot! ๐Ÿ”ฅ

๐ŸŒชCliffhanger Warning-๐ŸŒช No Cliffy Baby! HEA

See Ya Later Taters!!

My Review

Holy Cheese Sticks On Pizza Friends!! I plowed through this sizzling sweet story! I loved it! The one-nighter turns to forever love. Itโ€™s one of my favorites. Now was it that simple, absolutely not! But thatโ€™s what made it so much fun to read about.ย 

Porter and Dorisโ€Doryโ€ first meet when they both have a rare night off. Him from his seven-year-old daughter and Dory from working her multiple jobs. They immediately hit it off and decided to have a one night stand. Neither are looking for any kind of a relationship AT ALL and itโ€™s not like theyโ€™re gonna see each other again, right? Of course they have a run-in, the best ever!! Talk about awkward. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

What I loved about both Porter and Dory is although both of their paths were a bit different, they both carried emotional scars from growing up. This did help to mold them into the people that they became as adults and they were both wonderful, loving and caring people. Itโ€™s just unfortunate that Porter was always looking over his shoulder, or next to him to see if those he cared about had run off and left him yet. It was also sad because anytime anything nice happened for Dory, she was always waiting for the other shoe to drop. ๐Ÿ˜ญ

This story is engaging and hot, itโ€™s fast paced and funny. Itโ€™s serious and even had some moments that definitely pulled some tears out of me. I got to get some updates and funny times with all my favorites. Foster, Wren, Winston, Drew, and Sully. Sassy little Kyrie, Porterโ€™s daughter stole quite a few of the scenes. Get ready to fall for Porter and Doris. ๐Ÿ˜

โญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญโญโญ๏ธ- GAHHH! I canโ€™t get enough of Teagan Hunterโ€™s writing! Thatโ€™s all!! Itโ€™s just amazing! 

๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ-Porter and Dory are smokin! Positively on fire!๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ”ฅ

๐ŸŒชCliffhanger Warning- HEA!! Yay!! I love it!

Koyn Blog Tour & Review

Koyn

A Royal Bastardโ€™s MC Novel by K Webster Publication Date: January 21, 2020 Genres: MC Dark Romance

Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | Apple Books | Eden Books I had it all. Family. Career. A future. Until a couple of bikers took it brutally away from me. They scarred me both inside and out, killing the man I once was. Jared Koynakov is dead and Koyn rose from the ashes. Ten years later, I live by a code that is shaped by hate, anger, and revenge. As prez, Iโ€™ve built a brotherhood of men who share the same thirst for vengeance and are loyal until the end. Together, we will find those bastards and end them. Every last one of them. All it takes is one slip, and I almost have them in my grasp. Until a pretty pageant girl, who looks far too much like my daughter, steps into the fray causing the ultimate distraction. I must choose between my revenge and being her savior. Iโ€™m one helluva biker with a taste for torture, but Iโ€™m an even better daddyโ€ฆ

My Review

K. Webster, I bow down to you!! This book, yโ€™all. This incredibly dark and dirty and twisted book! Now I have read MC romances, but I have not read a tale like Koyn and Hadleyโ€™s story. EVER!

It is crazy twisted and sick and unique and I was blown away by Koynโ€™s ability to worm his way into my heart. There was almost two sides to Koyn. There is the Koyn of the past, before he endured the worst possible experience anyone could ever go through and then the Koyn of today. The one that lives his life with one ultimate goal, to serve up revenge on the one(s) that took everything from him. Iโ€™m not even really a fan of the โ€œcall me daddyโ€ kinda romance books, but I totally didnโ€™t mind it this on  AT ALL. This book was that amazing. No lie. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ˜

Hadleyโ€™s character invoked so many emotions in me. She was sassy and beautiful. Yet, she was broken and at the same time strong. She had been through unimaginable things. But she made it through and made it out. She got herself caught up in a rough and dangerous world by choice. Because it was preferable to her pampered pretty princess life with the devastatingly disgusting secrets kept behind closed doors. Doing her best to go as unnoticed as possible in the previous club wonโ€™t work for her after the events that led her to Koynโ€™s compound. 

I donโ€™t want to give too much away but the push and pull between her and Koyn, Holy GAH!! Heโ€™s drawn to her because she reminds him of his daughter. She views him as anything but a father. A Dirty Daddy, Yes! Delicious!! My heart melted and broke for him at the same time. I understand why he was the way he way towards Hadley, but then when he made a decision he did, it literally gutted me along with her. 

His loyalty to his guys, his drive. It was hot. This man was broken and scarred, bit inside and out. He had a depth to him though. You could see glimpses of the man he used to be. Before he lost everything. His character was tortured and complex and I loved him. 

The guys in Koynโ€™s club are some of the most sick and twisted, yet they are loyal and Iโ€™m drawn to them. I want all their stories.

I just know there is some special โ€œold ladiesโ€ out there that will bring these rough yet sinfully hot, hog drivingโ€™ men to their knees! If you think youโ€™ve read some nasty, just wait till you take a little trip to the slaughterhouse and see the Royal Bastards MC gang serve up a side of revenge in ways that only they can. Itโ€™s crazy insane. And I Floved Ever.Single.Second!

โญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญโญโญ๏ธ- Iโ€™m officially OBSESSED with all things RB MC . I went through all the emotions in this book. It was so full of action, suspense, angst, sex, hear, banter, blood, tears, live, loss, revenge, and redemption! I canโ€™t wait for more with the rest of the club members stories! This book was raw and gritty and phenomenal. Grab it today! 

๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ-OMG! HOLY HOT HELL. For as much as Koyn might have tried to avoid it happening it was inevitable. He and Hadley and he were beyond all things imaginably hot! The were explosive and forbidden and just straight up Yummy! Sexy scenes were off the charts hot! 

๐ŸŒชCliffhanger Warning- This has a HEA , but sets us up for the stories of other club members from other chapters from all over. I canโ€™t wait! ๐Ÿ˜

๐Ÿ”ซ Trigger  Warning-This book is a MC romance and does have some scenes that could be considered triggers for some. It also deals with some serious and sensitive content that could be disturbing to some. Some of the scenes are fairly graphic. If you have concerns you can PM for more information.

Blurb: Welcome to their kingdom

Cole Covington is the most popular heartbreaker at school.

Every guy wants to be him and every girl wants to screw him.

Except me.

His devastatingly good looks, golden arm, and flirty smiles don’t do it for me anymore…because I know what’s lurking underneath the star quarterback’s gorgeous armor.

At least I thought I did.

Sometimes the most beautiful people…hide the ugliest truths.

And sometimes the only way to save someone…

is to walk beside them through hell.

Sawyer Church is the bible-thumping nerd of Royal Hearts Academy.

Girls pick on her and guys don’t notice her.

Except me.

Sweet, curvy, and sarcastic, she’s impossible to ignore.

No matter how much I try.

Everyone at school has her pegged as the chubby, Jesus loving geek, but unlike themโ€”Sawyer’s real and never pretends to be someone she’s not.

Until I ask her to be my fake girlfriend.

Sometimes the most beautiful souls…hide the greatest pain.

And sometimes the only way to save someone…

is to fight for them.

  Excerpt: I open my mouth to speak, but Bianca beats me to it. โ€œIn Coleโ€™s defense, he told me not to hook up with any guys. He never said anything about girls, though.โ€ Smirking, she adds, โ€œPlus, itโ€™s not like he was there. He was too busy hanging out with his new girlfriend, Sawyer.โ€ On second thought, maybe locking her up in the basement isnโ€™t such a bad idea after all. There would be way less shit for her to stir up from down there. I can tell the exact moment Jace processes what she said because the little vein in his forehead makes an appearance. โ€œSawyer? As in Dylanโ€™s best friend, Sawyer?โ€ โ€œDo you know any other Sawyers?โ€ โ€œI told you to stay away from her.โ€ โ€œYou also told me not to fuck Mrs. Bennett, but she ended up giving me an A in history.โ€ โ€œHoly shit. You fucked Cortlandโ€™s mom?โ€ Bianca exclaims. We both ignore her. โ€œLook,โ€ Jace starts. โ€œDylan doesnโ€™t want you hanging around Sawyer. Not after what you did to her.โ€ โ€œIโ€™m sorry, last I checked, Iโ€™m a big boy and Dylan doesnโ€™t get to make decisions for me.โ€ โ€œYeah,โ€ Bianca cheers. Jaceโ€™s gaze swings her way. โ€œGo upstairs.โ€ โ€œWhatever.โ€ She fixes her stare on Oakley. โ€œIโ€™m gonna call *** and see if she wants to hang out.โ€ Oakley makes a low growling sound as she scampers away. When sheโ€™s out of earshot, he says, โ€œ***** is a sweet girl, Jace. You need to put an end to that shit.โ€ Huffing out a breath, Jace motions to me. โ€œYeah, after I put out the other fire.โ€ โ€œMe dating Sawyer isnโ€™t a fire.โ€ Itโ€™s a motherfucking atomic bomb.

My Review

Sweet Baby Desus in a manger! Yโ€™all better get ready, because this conclusion is crazy, fantastic! Iโ€™m still trying to wrap my head around everything that was thrown my way in this book. 

Stolen Lies pics up and follows Talia, Kosta and the Demetriou crew right at a year after the major cliffhanger that we were left with a the ending of Hidden Truths. We finally find out what happened to Talia. The question is…What will Kosta do and say about information surrounding Taliaโ€™s disappearance when he comes face to face with the details? Who will be the recipient or recipients of his revenge? Will it be a new enemy or someone he once loved? 

Talia was sweet, innocent, yet sassy in the first book. The Mafia Princess inside her shines in this book. We see a strength in her come out like never before. Sometimes you can find strength in the smallest of packages and thatโ€™s what happened here. She found hers. It got her through, gave her purpose and focus, and patience. She knew she needed to plan to escape perfectly to be able to get out of the situation she was in at the beginning of the book.

I loved the Talia we got to see in this book. She was so amazing. She was even more loving and nurturing than in the first book. BUT she was also tough as nails and she had to make some life changing, split second decisions and she did them without hesitation. I think she grew into who she was destined to be in this book.ย 

Kostas was suffocating himself in so much grief in the beginning missing Talia. That was hard to read. He was pining and letting himself go. I was glad for the realization of just how much he loved her to hit him, but hated it had to happen for him in that way. Now, in this book we get to see glimpses of a much softer side to Kostas. The was he is with Talia, made my heart-a- flutter. Kostas is definitely a character that makes heart rates go up and panties drop. There is something to be said for a man that can touch a woman tenderly with a hand that also was used to end someoneโ€™s life. So. Freakin.Hot!  

I donโ€™t want to give anything about this book away. So let me say, this story is a web weaved slap full of lies, secrets, scandal, and sex. Itโ€™s about murder, kidnapping, revenge and pure hatred. Itโ€™s full of so many suspense-filled moments of pure adrenaline rushing, heart-stopping, nail biting, hubby bring me some wine before I throw my kindle, moments. IT IS OFF THE FREAKIN CHARTS THAT GOOD!! 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

My Review

So B.B. had totally it set up in the other books where I was absolutely, unequivocally NOT a Barbette โ€Beeโ€ fan. I would go as far as to say I despised her character. I didnโ€™t like her friendship with Ever, I didnโ€™t trust her, just didnโ€™t care for her. I started opening up to her  a little in TMATF, but still. Now… I absolutely love, like fist pumps in the air rooting for her, sheโ€™s my new BFF. Iโ€™m a โ€œBee-lieverโ€!

Gah!! Jamie, oh Jamie! His character has been one of my tops from day one. There is something about him. His playful personality, that donโ€™t GAF attitude he puts off, when really heโ€™s one of the most caring people out there. Heโ€™s giving off this players vibe and heโ€™s borderline cruel to Bee,  but really heโ€™s just protective of his heart and sweet gooey center, afraid he will be exposed to hurt and risk heartbreak again if he lets his guard down. 

โ€œYou kiss me with your cruel words and caress me with your pain.โ€

Told in alternating POVโ€™s we go back and forth between their senior year of high school and their pre-teen years. We get in-depth looks into the what let Jamie and Bee to be the characters they are today. 

โ€œItโ€™s not your hate that kills me but the love I see shining through.โ€

It also gives us better understanding why Jamie feels the way he does, and we understand what it was like for Bette growing up and what led to some of the decisions that she and Ever made and why Four would have went along with them. We get to see the story of Jamie and Bee childhood friends falling in love and the hurts, secrets, misunderstandings and devastation that come after. BEE AND JAMIE ARE EVERYTHING! 

While Iโ€™m not going to give away any of the details of this book because #SpoilersSuck. I will say Iโ€™m pretty sure this one might be my favorite of all. Because…Jamie! Tattoos, piercings, attitude and heart. I mean hot dang, yโ€™all! And Bee, sheโ€™s beautiful and sassy and sweet. Sheโ€™s loving and as it turns out unselfish. This is one of my most favorite series. I cannot recommend it enough. If you havenโ€™t started it. TODAY IS THE DAY! Pick up this Bully/Friends to Lovers Favorite. I would give it all the stars in the sky if I could. 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

โญ๏ธโญโญโญโญโญ๏ธ- I have to add a sixth star for my blog rating cause I just gotta! This is like a Bully/ Friends to lovers romance all in one! Jamie is legit! Heโ€™s the most perfect book boyfriend. Tattoos and piercings. Heโ€™s just delicious! Plus all your favorite characters are back!

Blog tour teaser.jpg

Excerpt: โ€œWell, isnโ€™t this the most delicious surprise.โ€ My head confirmed what my eyes were showing me, but my stubborn heart still refused to believe. Jamie was back from Ireland? Why hadnโ€™t Ever told me? Neither of those answers seemed to matter as much as why Jamie was back.

The short sleeves of the button up he wore were rolled and bunched at the shoulders, displaying the muscles heโ€™d grown since Iโ€™d last seen him four years ago. The white cotton only pronounced his tanned skin. Heโ€™d left the buttons undone, allowing anyone who laid eyes on him to see his hard chest and defined absโ€ฆand the many tattoos that covered them. Most of them were angry and aggressive, almost scary as if he were showing off his demons for anyone to see. Recalling my sweet Jamie from long ago, and what happened the last time Iโ€™d seen him, I knew I was responsible for every one of them. Gone was the gentle boy next door with a full mop of hair, a lanky body, and an easy smile. This boy standing before me was darker, edgierโ€ฆmore tragic to my lonely, fragile heart. Was that yearning burning in the pit of my stomach or fear of the unknown? Because I didnโ€™t know this Jamie, and judging by the wicked gleam in his eyes as he flashed that mocking grin, I didnโ€™t want to know. โ€œWhat the hell are you doing back here?โ€ โ€œIs that any way to greet your first love? I got to sayโ€โ€”his gaze slowly traced every dip and curve of my bodyโ€”โ€œI love how well youโ€™ve grown up, Bette.โ€ โ€œFirst love?โ€ I scoffed, even though it felt like heโ€™d stolen my breath. โ€œYou were hardly that.โ€ โ€œThen what was I?โ€ he challenged, backing me against the opposite wall. โ€œIโ€™m breathless to hear more of your lies.โ€

โ€œYou were nothing.โ€ He flashed me that sad, beautiful smile I hadnโ€™t realized Iโ€™d missed so much. I stood perfectly still as his wolfish gaze ate me up. As close as he stood now, he wouldnโ€™t miss a single fucking flaw. There were many, but no one dared looked close enough to see. I might as well have been Medusa. As he ran his gaze over me, I took the time to study him as well, noting the silver bar piercing his right brow and the small diamond in his right nostril. I could have sworn Iโ€™d even glimpse a flash of metal piercing his nipples. Jamie had taken all that sinful deliciousness he naturally possessed and multiplied it by ten thousand. As if the world didnโ€™t already have enough injustices. โ€œYou’re so beautiful. Did it hurt?โ€ He kept his gaze on me as he turned his head and blew out smoke. โ€œDid what hurt?โ€ I could feel the heat from Jamieโ€™s cigarette when he defiantly brushed his thumb across my bottom lip. To Jamieโ€™s knowledge, I belonged to his cousin now, but he clearly didnโ€™t give a damn. โ€œWhen you fell from heaven, Satan.โ€ I slapped his hand away while telling myself to get a grip. Jamie might have surprised me, but he was nothing I couldnโ€™t handle. โ€œGet lost, Jameson.โ€ Tapping the end of his cigarette, he sprinkled ash onto my designer blouse. A piece of the flame had fallen, burning through the sheer material, scorching my skin. Before now, Iโ€™d never thought Jamie capable of hurting me. The truth was now so blatantly blazed into our history that it could never be unwritten. Without warning, he pressed closer until I could see nothing but the angry blackness of his eyes. โ€œIโ€™m afraid Iโ€™m not going anywhere. By the time Iโ€™m done with you, Barbette Montgomery, youโ€™ll be crawling back to meโ€ฆ but I doubt Iโ€™ll want my cousinโ€™s sloppy thirds.”

โ€œI wouldnโ€™t hold your breath.โ€ I wasted little time pushing him away. Tragically, the moment my hand connected with his warm skin, the electricity threatening to make my broken heart beat again became too obvious to ignore. I tried to run from it, but some inexplicable need to seal our fate had me spinning on my heel to face him again. โ€œBetter yet, Jameson, do us both the favor, wonโ€™t you?โ€

Insolent Release Blitz & Review

Title: Insolent
Series: Sinister Fairy Tales Collection
Author: Cynthia A. Rodriguez
Genre: Dark Romance Fairy Tale Retelling
Release Date: December 9, 2019
Thereโ€™s a girl screaming at the top of a hill,
Burdened by a duty she was born to fulfill.
Thereโ€™s a quiet killer lurking nearby,
Watching as she wishes only to die.
Sheโ€™s tasked by her mother to marry a man,
Until the demon from hell puts a wrench in the plan.
Their fates will twine in inconceivable ways.
But where one goes, the other cannot stay.
How could she fall for such a man, you ask?
For the girl with no heart, it was the easiest task.

My Review

Insolent is a part of the Sinister Fairy Tales collection and a take on Brave. It is the story of Moira and Sol. Moira grew up in a wealthy family, the only girl with horribly cruel triplet brothers. She was abused, neglected and locked away by her family. Set to be arranged to marry a man chosen by her deplorable mother. 

Then an angel or a devil intervenes and saves her from the evil wretches of her family, only to take her as his own prisoner.ย Moira finds herself torn between her feelings for her captor. Her only comfort is both a gift and skill she possesses with her bow and arrows.ย She finds herself using her gift to get revenge in ways she had only dreamed. Will Sol be the cause of herย demise or is he her savior?ย 

This book has plenty of secrets and lies. Itโ€™s full of blood and gore and angst. While Brave is not a Fairy Tale Iโ€™m all that familiar with, and it isn’t my favorite of the sinister collection so far, this was a pretty good re-telling. For me it probably has more to do with the fairy tale itself (since I have never seen or read the original)and not the writer. The writing was great. The details were plentiful and described perfectly as to capture the reader’s attention, the story flowed quickly and I read the book in just a few hours. 

I liked Moiraโ€™s character and though my heart was broken for her and her mistreatments, she was actually a tough cookie. Her skills with the bow and arrow were unmatched and she ultimately was able to get her own redemption. GO Moira!! 

Now, Sol. Iโ€™m not sure I was prepared for that level of deception. From him and towards him. The rug was definitely pulled out from under me. But I loved his character, he was definitely the bad guy gone good! Their love story was dark and consumed by desperation and loneliness, but it was tragically beautiful. Iโ€™m glad Moira found Sol.

โญ๏ธโญโญโญ- This is full of details, fast paced and overall a good re-telling. 

๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ- The chemistry between Sol and Moira is hot and angry and dark and heโ€™s borderline cruel so that amps up the hotness factor 

๐ŸŒชCliffhanger Warning- No cliffhanger!

My Review

Logan Gregory is just as described. Evil, horribly vile, bordering on cruel. But heโ€™s also gorgeous, deliciously dirty and will melt you right into a puddle of googly eyes and sweet fantasies when you see him with his little girl. What a horrible combination for any womanโ€™s poor heart and panties, they donโ€™t stand a chance.

I mean who can blame you really , not surprising if the lines start to blur. So, He laid down the rules, he drew the lines and made sure there was no room for errors or misunderstandings. But whoโ€™s to sayโ€ฆ would he be able to follow his own rules? The green eyed-monster is an ugly thing that gets a hold of us all! What about Emma ?!?! What would you do if you saw glimpses of a good guy beneath the deplorable guy he wanted you to see? When secrets come out, will Logan lose everything he didnโ€™t know he even wanted?ย 

Emma was just looking for a fresh start. She came to Brighton U because no one knew her, or her past. The pretty princess exiled to escape her past. She just wanted to live a drama free existence. She needed money. Logan Gregory offered her a nanny job with additional job responsibilities after hours for more money that she could imagine. But was it worth the money or the risk to her heart? She had no one to help her. His daughter was adorable so that part of the job was a no-brainer. She wanted to care for Chelsea and do all the fun things that that entailed. But what would she do about some of the more unorthodox job responsibilities he was asking of her? It was obvious her and Logan were immensely attracted to each other, so why not enter into an agreement that would benefit them both as long as feelings didnโ€™t get in the way? 

Emma had been through a lot in her past and my heart broke for her. It wasnโ€™t fair how she had been treated and left to deal with the fall-out of what had happened in the past. I loved her character though. She was strong and resilient. The way she handled Logan was nothing short of perfection. She was sassy and verbally sparred with him. It was hot and filled with sexual tension. I loved that she stood up to him. She was the perfect balance for this intimidating businessman.ย 

But how will our sweet and sassy Nanny handle it when she feels like the past is repeating itself?ย 

Chelsea was the absolute cutest kid ever. I lived for any scene where she was present. She was a feisty little mini Logan and she was already putting boys in their place. Lolย  This book has everything you could possibly want.ย This is a must read for age-gap and single dad romance fans both!!
