Title: The Smallest Part

Author: Amy Harmon

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: 13th February, 2018

Cover Design by Hang Le




“In the end, only three things matter. How much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.”
– Unknown

It was a big lie. The biggest lie she’d ever told. It reverberated through her head as she said it, ringing eerily, and the girl behind her eyes—the girl who knew the truth—screamed, and her scream echoed along with the lie.
“Are you in love with Noah, Mercedes?” Cora asked. “I mean . . . I know you love him. You’ve been friends forever. We all have. But are you in love with him?”
If it had been anyone else—anyone—Mercedes would have stuck out her chest, folded her skinny arms, and let her feelings be known. She would have claimed him. But it was Cora. Brave, beautiful, broken Cora, and Cora loved Noah too.
So Mercedes lied.
And with that lie, she lost him. With that lie, she sealed her fate.
She was the best friend, the bridesmaid, the godmother, the glue. She was there for the good times and the bad, the ups and the downs, the biggest moments and the smallest parts. And she was there when it all came crashing down.
This is the tale of the girl who didn’t get the guy.

Once in a while you pick up that book. Even before you get to the second chapter, you know it’s not only going to keep you glued to the pages, but also be one of those stories which will bring out all the feelings. So, I finished The Smallest Part a couple of days ago and I’m still not sure whether this review will do justice to such a timeless read or not. But before you pick this standalone up, a bit of advice is in order because I was given much of the same… ”You won’t be able to put it down when you start it!” “Like hell I won’t,” I said to myself! Well, as I couldn’t adhere to this warning, I’d suggest disconnecting your phone, switching off any distracting gadgets and asking your folks nicely to do a disappearing act for the day. Or in my case, get your partner to put earplugs in and ignore you! Harmon’s way with words enchanted me. I was mesmerized, left aghast and sobbed into my pillow. And to quite honest with you, if there is a book which I have found so faultlessly enkindled, this has to be the one.

My book bestie who had already read it was bombarded with my messages. I told her what I thought and of course, she never agreed or disagreed with me. Her encouragement to read on was just enough because there were times when I simply couldn’t deal with some of the scenarios. And I’m not exaggerating when I say I felt as if I was choking half the time. Many moments of pure tenderness brought joy to my heart but didn’t counterbalance tough decisions made, making me want to jump into the protagonists’ lives and give them both a good talking to. I knew they knew…they just didn’t want to see what I saw. But then again, nothing is surprising seeing as circumstances prevailed and seeing as this is Harmon at her very best, I simply couldn’t have asked for more.

A low-keyed passion simmers below the surface. I actually had difficulty fathoming this out since one would think that love has no boundaries. There are more hurdles in Noah Andelin and Mercedes Lopez’s ‘bestie’ relationship than I could ever have imagined. However, judging their stances never crossed my mind. Before all the facts were presented, I thought them being so selfless towards each other was what true friends were made of. It was a small part of them; their love, unwavering respect and stubbornness was much bigger than bearing the weight of the unexpected. I’m sorry to say that I did judge Cora. She certainly kept me guessing; I got it all wrong though. When the twist and a half was presented, instead of pitying her, all she seemed to do was dismay me more. After much contemplation, forgiving her wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be since all said and done, we’re all only human and we make mistakes.

I really don’t want to go into detail since spoiling this read for you would be an absolute crime. All I can say is three friends grow up together, share all their experiences, hide secrets which shouldn’t have been hidden, love hard and pay even harder for things out of their control right up to adult life. A special word for Mercedes. She is the best. She stole my heart with such an ease and I am humbled to be have been given a huge part of her. I’ve hardly mentioned Noah. Meet him, get to know what a marvellous man he is and what an example he sets for all who have to go through what he did. And before I go, the cover…ooh my…It. Is. Perfect! The paperchain figures… So Ms Harmon, my last word is simply BRAVO and thank you!

Title: Sordid

Author: Ava Harrison

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: February 16, 2018 






It was his lips.

The way his stare sent shivers down my spine.

The way his rough voice whispered my name.

So I caved.

I did what I knew I shouldn’t.

But as quickly as he’s there, he’s gone.

Leaving me confused. 


I hope I’ll never see him again…

Then I do. 

He’s my new boss. 

And he has secrets.

*Sordid is a COMPLETE standalone novel.



4.5 Stars ~ Reviewed by Emma-Louis on behalf of KFF

Sordid is a standalone in the same world as Illicit and Clandestine. Grant Lancaster, yes that Grant Lancaster, the one who outs the older brother of Spencer from Clandestine. One huge question was never answered in Clandestine. Why was Grant usurped by Spencer in running the Lancaster empire? And oh brother, did we get the answer to this in Sordid. The answer was more than I, a simple reviewer, could ever have imagined. Every single bleak instance in this book was because of good people who chose to do the wrong thing for the right reasons. I couldn’t even hate them for it, in their shoes I’d have probably made the exact same choices.

The only true issue I had with this tale was the apparent ‘villains’, though I loved to see them get their just desserts; to me they could have been a little more toned down. They were just slightly closer to over the top for me. The story between Grant and Bridget is littered with landmines and almost insurmountable hurdles. Much is on the line for both of them at times their love almost seemed destined for heartache and pain.

‘…screaming silently into his mouth all the words I cannot say with my lips.

    All the I love yous I’ll never say.

…..Whispering my name against my lips like a benediction.

    As if I’ll save him.

    As if I could.’

For Bridget, in the pages of this tale she discovers her inner strength and self belief. Her chance encounter with Grant brings a storm front she didn’t expect or see coming. Their attraction is almost instantaneous, they’re drawn together like magnets on a professor’s table.

‘Her strong will calls to me, and I’m losing the battle with myself every day. I know I need to keep my walls up, not let her sway my resolve, but I can’t.’

Bridget believes she lives in the shadow of her family and if she can make something of herself, she’ll have the ability to stand with her head held high and proud. The love of her parents is limitless and unconditional. They love her dearly and are hugely protective of her. Unlike some tales, her parents aren’t perfect, their mistakes are on show for the world to see. This doesn’t lesson them, quite the opposite in fact; mistakes make them more real. Familial bonds are key in this story. Even when family has been estranged, they come together in spite of distance and time between them.

I adore the titles that this author chooses. One word titles are my favourites. It’s short and to the point and with this author, it’s always a small peak into what the books theme encompasses. Unlike plenty of apparent ‘standalones’ out there today, this author truly does know how to spin and create a tale that is great to read alongside the other publications, but also truly can be enjoyed without them.

They steal our hearts. They steal our breath.
They steal our sanity.
And we let them.
Over and over and over again.


They say you never forget your first time.
Mine was with a homeless musician who effed my brains out under a bridge.

He was my first love. And sixteen years later, I still can’t get him out of my head.

He broke all my rules.
He also broke my heart.

I watched him climb to stardom, cheering him on from afar.
But I was never a fan; just a girl in love.

Like a tornado, he spiraled, leaving a path of destruction in his wake.

But love conquers all, right? It has to. Because here I stand, ravaged and ruined, needing it to be true.

You can’t go back, but I want to. Back to the bridge. Back to when he sang only for me. Before he was famous. Before he shattered my heart.

I thought I knew everything about him.
But I could not have been more wrong.

He promised me every tomorrow. And here I am, waiting.
And hoping.

A deliciously seductive standalone coming soon to ebook, print and audio.

The hunter has become the hunted.

I’ve been running for ten years—fleeing my past and clawing my way toward an inescapable act of vengeance. Finally, I can taste revenge on the tip of my tongue.

Until he walks into my life, sure and strong and full of secrets.

He dilutes my thirst for retribution with his touch. He obliterates my need for solitude with his kiss. But it’s his hidden agenda that makes the hair on the back of my neck prickle.

He wants something. Something that doesn’t revolve around sweaty skin and tangled silk sheets like he’d have me believe.

I have to stop falling for him, otherwise the last ten years will all be for nothing. I need to keep running, keep fighting for vengeance, even though I know he will track me down.

But trying to escape him is just another problem. Because now I crave the hunt.

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

Growing up, the three of us were friends.
He was the nerd.
I was the playboy.
She was the beauty.

Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits.

He lied.

I went off to college, and he got the girl.
Amber never knew how I felt.
They were together for years—before he broke her heart.

Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch. When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room.

Still reeling from her breakup, she’d sworn off men. One night, I opened her computer to find the shock of my life. She’d hesitantly contacted a male escort company. Afraid to date and get her heart broken again, she was looking for sex with no strings. Every emotion imaginable ran through me: protectiveness, jealousy—curiosity. Amber had chosen Gentleman Number Nine and sent him a message. She opened up to him, confessing, among other things, her physical attraction to her friend—me. But she considered me off-limits—and she thought I was a manwhore. (Ironic, considering the circumstances.)

Eventually, she set up a date to meet Gentleman Nine at a hotel. When she showed up several nights later to meet him, she was stunned to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse.

Is that what your friends call you? I like that. Thanks for the answers.

That’s an interesting question—why tonight of all nights? Well, I saw my ex tagged on Facebook with another woman, and that put me over the edge. But it’s more than that. Lately, I’ve developed a strong attraction to a good friend of mine, and that’s sort of screwing with me a bit. He’s actually temporarily living in my condo, but he’s someone I’ve known for years. I’ve always thought he was extremely handsome, but it’s complicated. He and I would not be a good match romantically. He’s not the monogamous type, or at least, he never used to be. We’re better off as friends. He was also the best friend of my ex years back, so there’s that. Having him around, though, has made me more sensitized to my sexual desires. Little things like the waft of his scent, the way he touches the small of my back when he passes by me in the kitchen…it’s like my body is on this constant state of alert. So, I was thinking if I could just—for lack of a better word—get laid, maybe I could get this feeling out of my system.


My jaw was open as I just sat there staring at the screen.

Holy shit.

I read it again.

And again.

And again.

I honestly didn’t think that Amber felt that way about me. She would always make jokes about me being good-looking, but her attraction to Rory proved that her taste wasn’t exactly conventional. Now, I really felt like shit for invading her privacy, because there was no way she would’ve been okay with confessing that to me. I never imagined any of this had to do with me. I’d assumed it was solely about Rory.

She wanted to use another man to f*ck me out of her system?

That revelation left me shocked and confused—not to mention hard as f*ck thinking about the fact that Amber wanted me.

Eight Goodbyes
Christine Brae
Published by: Vesuvian Books
Publication date: September 4th 2018
Genres: Adult, Romance

When Tessa Talman meets Simon Fremont for the first time, not only is she attracted to him, she’s intrigued by how different their lives are. He’s a dedicated scientist, practical, pragmatic, and grounded—while she’s a head-in-the-clouds romance author. As their relationship grows, they agree to meet in places around the world, while continuing to live on opposite sides of the globe.

Though their feelings for each other deepen, their priorities remain the same. Simon is in a hurry to be financially sound and settle down, but Tessa is enjoying her freedom and newfound success. Neither is willing to give in, but as each goodbye gets harder, Tessa begins to wonder whether fame is the path to happiness, or if she has everything she needs in Simon.

Just as Tessa finds the courage to go after her own happily ever after, the unthinkable happens, separating them in ways they never imagined.

To move forward, she must let go of the past, and determine once and for all if love is truly more powerful than the pain of goodbye.
