Irresistible FOR WEB.jpg

I’m a full-time single dad to three daughters and CFO at Cloverleigh Farms. I don’t have time to fall in love—I’m too busy trying to run a business, keep the red socks out of the white laundry, and get the damn pillowcases on without owing a dollar to the swear jar.

Sure, Frannie Sawyer is beautiful and sweet, but she’s twenty-seven, the boss’s daughter, and my new part-time nanny—which means she’s completely off-limits. It’s bad enough I can’t stop fantasizing about her, what kind of jerk would I be if I acted on the impulse to kiss her?

(Exactly the kind of jerk you’re thinking.)

Actually, I’m worse than that—because I didn’t stop with a kiss, and now I can’t stay away. She makes me feel like myself again. She reminds me what it’s like to want something just for me. She’s everything I ever needed, but nothing I ever imagined.

I’m a former Marine. I should have had the strength to resist her from the start.

But I didn’t. And now I have to choose between the life I want and the life she deserves.

Even if it means giving her up.

Irresistible - Teaser 4 an.jpg


This is the first of a new series featuring a single dad and a nanny; a quick and fun read that isn’t loaded with angst, more light-hearted with lots of lovable characters.

Frannie Sawyer works at Cloverleigh Farms, a successful family-owned business. She is the youngest daughter but at the age of twenty-seven and still living with her parents, she’s starting to feel smothered. She is also a part-time nanny to Mack’s three young daughters and harboured a secret crush on Mack for ages although he seems to think she’s too young for him. Given that he’s ten years older and with a lot of baggage, her unrequited love seems doomed.

Declan MacAllister aka Mack is a recently divorced father of three girls. A former marine and now the Chief Financial Officer and Business Manager of Cloverleigh Farms, his hands are full single-handedly raising Millie, Felicity and Winifred. With the help of two nannies, one of them Frannie, he just about manages to get his job done and take care of his girls, too. He doesn’t have time for any relationships either. Even though he is very much interested in Frannie, he feels that she deserves someone better than him.

Mack and Frannie’s romance is full of easy and funny banter, dirty talk and sexy romps. Told in dual points of view, a single dad hooking up with the nanny sounds cliché but fear not, this book has more depth. As a father who is trying very hard to take care of his daughters, Mack is an exceptional dad but as a boyfriend, I felt he needed room for improvement. No wonder the poor bloke is overloaded with emotional baggage when his ex-wife dumped him and put all the blame on him for the failure of their marriage.

All throughout the book, I felt that Frannie was more emotionally invested whilst Mack only enjoyed their stealthy hook-ups and basically told her he’s not the one for her. For me, one of the highlights of this book is the girls’ relationship with their dad, how they coped with their mother’s abandonment and how they supported each other. It certainly makes for a very pleasant read. The hero and heroine’s love story takes a back seat for the girls’ smart talk, backchat and their adorable snarky attitude. Some characters from the author’s other books make cameo appearances which chuffed me to bits. I enjoyed reading Mack and Frannie’s love story and I am looking forward to reading the stories of Frannie’s older sisters: Chloe, April and Sylvia.

ALL WE WERE by Elisabeth Grace & Michelle Lynn is now available!

ALL WE WERE by Elisabeth Grace & Michelle Lynn is now LIVE!

Will I ever stop hurting the one person who’s never hurt me?

I’ve done things I can never undo.

No matter how much I wish I could, sometimes the wounds I inflict are too deep, too catastrophic, too septic to heal.

As I look into the eyes of the only man I’ve ever loved I know I’ve gone too far. I’ve finally crossed the line.

Even if he knew my reason for doing this, he’d never forgive me.

He always puts my needs before his own.

Now it’s my turn to protect him.

None of that matters though because the betrayal and disgust in his eyes comes from deep within his soul. There’s no coming back from this.

He will forever be tormented by what he’s seen, and he will never forgive me.

The last fragment of my heart to hold out hope that we’d share a future, withers and dies.

What did I just read? A romance or a train wreck, because this book could be described as both. It’s been quite some time since I read a book with two such highly relatable characters as Lilah and Jimmy. Friends since they were in diapers. Both raised by evil fathers. They were all each other had throughout their childhood. They did everything they could to make their dreams come true, eventually heading to Hollywood to pursue their respective careers.

They both left their pasts behind, only one of them could never really leave it behind and carried it around like a weight on their shoulders. Considering what they had survived, I really can understand why they went down the rabbit hole the way they did.

The darker side of Hollywood is showcased during this book; alcoholism, drug addiction and prostitution. Some people will do anything to get what they crave and I witnessed these very lengths. Wolves nipping at the heels of the innocent just trying to survive through the day in the City of Angels, there are no angels in this book though, only monsters and demons linger.

Lilah and Jimmy are as perfect for each other as they are imperfect. She has relied on him to be her safe haven for many years that I always worried that she would cease to function if he were ever not to be in her life.

As for Jimmy, he has sacrificed so very much for Lilah and their relationship. A relationship that is far past friendship but not nearly enough for him, even though he can’t walk away from Lilah. Walking away would be akin to tearing his heart out. He even says that he doesn’t know where he ends and she begins.

‘I sense the day coming, the day when I’ll have no choice but to dislodge the anchor or me and let him move on with his life. I owe him that much at least. But I can’t bear to think of how hollow my life will be without the one good thing I have left in it. One day I’ll find the nerve.’ 

They have enough fuel and a spark large enough to engulf the world and this is exactly what they do when the bottom of their world falls out and they spiral into a place neither can follow.

These authors who may I add had an air of familiarity in their writing, turn out to have another pen name that I have read and adored. You ladies are super sneaky and I love you for it. This book is not like their other pen names books, and I can understand why they would change names because of this. And oh yeah, the ending was enough to make me scream. Nice work ladies, April 4th cannot come soon enough. Argh.

ALL WE ARE is coming 25th April

Coming face-to-face with my past changes EVERYTHING.

I’m at the top of my game. All my struggles have finally paid off. Life should be great.

I mean, life is great.

Except for the fact that I can’t stop thinking of her. The woman who mangled my heart into a bloody pulp and never looked back.

If I could free myself of our shared memories, my future would be golden.

There’s only one way to move on—I have to confront the past, so I can move into the next chapter of my life in peace. Which means confronting her for the final time.

I had no idea that knocking on her door that day would turn my life upside down.

WHEN AUGUST ENDS by Penelope Ward is LIVE!


WHEN AUGUST ENDS, a standalone contemporary romance novel by New York Times, USA Today
and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling
Author Penelope Ward is LIVE
and now a USA Today bestseller!


PWWhenAugustEndsBookCover5x8_HIGH.jpgWhat do you do when a sexy, older man moves into your family’s summer rental?

Well, apparently, you make a fool of yourself—over and over. Things didn’t exactly get off on the right foot with Noah Cavallari. Our first encounter was embarrassing, to say the least.

But despite that, I found myself waking up every day with a newfound energy. Nothing exciting ever happened on the lake—not until Noah moved into the small boathouse on our property. He’d booked it for the entire summer…and I was still trying to figure out why.

When my mother became ill, I inherited the responsibility of making sure our guests were well taken care of. I should have been in college. Instead, I was living my best life…as a maid.

Dark, handsome, and mysterious, everything about Noah screamed forbidden.

I knew he was just passing through town for the summer.

I knew he was probably too old for me.

Yet, I was drawn to him.

Not to mention, he tried to save my life when he mistakenly thought I was drowning.

I wanted him and made no secret of it.

His own attempts to warn me away soon gave way to late-night moonlight chats by the lake. We were slowly easing into a friendship that was gearing up to explode into something I might not recover from.

Because he’s leaving at the end of the summer.

And I have no idea what I’ll do when August ends.

I always look forward to reading Ward’s contemporary romances and When August Ends is not only one of those books you pick up and have trouble putting down, but also broaches a subject I’m familiar with. So what, may you ask is it! Well…this stand-alone is overflowing with starting points, one of them being the age gap. Also, the author’s shorter sentences arrived like a gift since extended prose can at times make for a bulky read. And true to the author’s style, she hasn’t held back with the flirtatious witty wordplay. Totally necessary I might add, as the heroine most certainly deserves someone to brighten up her days.

‘Someone had to run things, and I was the winner of that responsibility by default.’ 

I couldn’t help but like Heather. She’s incredibly selfless, has had a raw deal and is handling the whole situation really well considering her age. And even though her hopes and dreams for the future aren’t in arm’s reach, I thought her matter-of-fact attitude mature beyond her years. In a nutshell, she’s an exemplary daughter and gets on with a job she feels duly tied to the best way she can. A past happening simmers in the background, the feeling of abandonment left me crushed. However, someone’s about to help her out in more ways than she could ever have expected.

“Sometimes you have to know when to walk away, even if it’s without your shoe. You know what I’m saying?” 

Noah’s taken time out and rented a guest boathouse on the family property until the end of August. Ladies, I wasn’t the only one counting down the weeks. Although this guy… his moral compass, his willingness to do the right thing impressed me beyond words, he’s tight-lipped and brusque. This part of his character I didn’t dislike a bit since little-big actions showed me there was much more to him than meets the eye.

“Life is made up of little moments that don’t seem that important at the time, but in retrospect they’re what get you to where you are.” 

Hmm…Noah fancies Heather, but won’t act on it as he knows it’s wrong in every way. He’s also aware that she has a crush on him. Lol, there’s nothing like drawing attention to oneself which she does pretty well in one scene. Roaring with laughter, this wasn’t going to be the only scenario which tickled me pink. So why is he holding back when the attraction is undeniable? I’d rather not make this known; nonetheless, it doesn’t need a calculator to come up with at least one right answer! Adoring how their friendship grew, their chats were a pleasure to read… How Noah slowly opens up to her, his sound advice and his reasoning behind his stance are realistically narrated. And his cigar smoking…loved this touch.

“You show people with your actions what kind of a person you are. You live your life with purpose, just like I try to. That’s probably the biggest thing we have in common.” 

You’ll all want someone like Noah’s father in your lives. Regardless of his son’s doubts and fears, this marvellous man is always there for him. And a delicate health issue told with compassion brought to light just how this silent malady affects loved ones. The tasteful steaminess sneaks up on you at the right moment in the story, and despite being a low-angst-slow-burn romance, the twist took me by surprise and literally sealed the deal for me.

‘My attraction to her would have to stay my dirty little secret, because I wouldn’t be laying a hand on her.’ 

The author’s creative narrative from dual perspectives in past tense overflows with engaging banter, keeping this love story moving at a pleasing pace. Emotional and sensitive, Noah and Heather’s tale is not one you’ll want to miss. Ooh, and for all of you animal lovers, your hearts will melt when you meet Bonnie and Clyde, their mascots. Bravo!

Noah stood up and walked off the porch to put his cigar out on the cement. When he returned, he remained standing across from me. I was reminded of just how tall he was as he towered over me. A breeze blew his scent—a mix of cigar and cologne—in my direction. The same smell saturated the shirt I was wearing. I could’ve breathed it in all night. His nearness was doing things to my body I hadn’t ever felt.Noah looked around. “You mentioned some stuff around here needs to be repaired. What specifically?”
I blew out a breath. Even thinking about it was exhausting. “So much. I’d have to make a list.”“Why don’t you do that? Make a list. I’m pretty good with my hands. I’ll see if there’s anything I can help with while I’m here.”He’d lost me at pretty good with my hands. My imagination was running wild. Shit. I imagined those hands doing a lot of things—mostly to me.“I can’t let you do that.”“You’d be stupid not to take me up on it. I came for a change of pace, but the truth is, too much quiet isn’t good. I like to keep busy.”Biting my bottom lip, I shook my head. “I don’t know…”“Make the list,” he insisted.Noah was right. It would be dumb not to take him up on his offer. It wasn’t like there was anyone else knocking down our door to help.I tilted my head. “What would be in it for you?”

His expression turned dark. “People don’t always have to have ulterior motives.”

Suddenly feeling bold, I said, “I thought maybe you would want me to go out with you in exchange.”

Did you hear that? It was a record screeching.

I admit, that was ballsy, but being around him brought out my flirtatious side. Maybe his cologne and cigar smoke were going to my head.

“You’re joking, right?”

Okay. I shouldn’t have asked.

“Actually, I—”

“I’m practically old enough to be your father.”

Really? That’s how he saw me? I knew he was older than me…but he didn’t seem that old. No way. I’d pegged him as early thirties, though I truly had no idea how old he was.

I shook my head. “No, you’re not. That’s a lie. An older brother, maybe. How old are you?”

Instead of answering, he took two steps forward. “Let me make something clear.”


“I was not insinuating anything by offering to help. And I will not be asking you out, propositioning you, or going anywhere near you, for that matter. We clear on that?”

Okay, then.

I swallowed. Disappointment washed over me as I cleared my throat. “Yes.”

“Good.” He made his way toward the door, turning around one last time. “You’d better go. It was nice chatting. Get me the list tomorrow.”

He disappeared into the house, leaving me on the porch to wallow in his lingering smell and feeling like a complete and utter idiot.

BLOG TOUR ~ STILL BRAZEN by M. Malone & Nana Malone is now available!

The duet is now complete! Today we are delighted to be on tour with Still Brazen by
M. Malone & Nana Malone!

How the hell did I, the perpetual bachelor, end up accidentally married in Vegas—to my client?As soon as I find out who’s trying to kill her, we’ll get a quickie divorce…or will we? I was never supposed to be married. I was never supposed to fall in love. I was never supposed to put her in danger.

But now that she’s back in my life I wonder if some things shouldn’t stay in Vegas.

To keep her I’ll have to fight for her. Good thing I’m brazen enough to do just that.

Reviewed by Emma-Louise on behalf of KFF

Last month the first installment ended on a cliffhanger. Happily, this release picked up right where the first left off. Still experiencing a barrage of confusion, more questions were left lingering than after a parliamentary debate.Is Evan up to his teeth in this or simply in the wrong place at the wrong time? What is her father hiding from her? Why on earth is her mother such a flake and so distant? Who is trying to kidnap and or kill our little perfume creator?

All valid questions and all are answered by the time this book hits ‘The End’. Most had a very satisfactory answer to them, but one left a very strange taste in my mouth. I love Blake Security and the cacophony of characters who call it home. Sadly, I just didn’t quite get the why and what of the biggest question in this duet.

These authors create characters that are realistic and fully fleshed out. Matthias, Noah and the gang are all complex people. I so wished I had read their books; that will be corrected as soon as physically possible. They’re all about putting right what is wrong and looking out for one another. There is a very fun part in this book that involves the women of their lives, a leather incident and explosives. That is all I am saying. I completely enjoyed that part. I would hate to run into any of these women in a dark alley; even Lucia is dangerous if cornered.

‘“Well, as for me, I always have my piece on.” She opened her purse and pulled out a sparkly gun.
Lucia snorted. “You bedazzled your gun?”
JJ grinned. “I gave it some pizzazz. Just because I’m carrying doesn’t mean I can’t be stylish.”’

Oskar continually battles his dark past and the monsters that lurk at the edges of the light. We go more in depth into his past. He isn’t alone; Hailey isn’t weak nor breakable. Considering the environment she grew up in I find her tacitly strong. She has endured so much and yet she never cracks. When Oskar finally brings his skeletons out of the closet, Hailey joins hands with him and is his port in a storm.

‘She’d reminded me of what was good and right in the world, and I’d known that I wanted more than money and a life on the run.’ 

Anybody builds their life from the ground up. The foundation must be strong and long set before building commences and yet like Hailey, even when your foundation is wrecked by disaster after disaster, it doesn’t have to be the end. New beginnings can be born from crumbled and eroded cement.

‘Welcomed it. Welcomed that quiet ownership. I needed this. A few weeks with him had ruined me for anyone else, ever again. Good thing he loved me.’ 

This isn’t a book including insta-love, this is a tale of second chances and new growth, rediscovery and birth. Of laying roots down and seeing life through brightly lit windows, as corny as that sounds it’s not meant to be. Two completely different people find each other and in return, they discover their true selves. These authors are one-clicks for me and I’m never disappointed by what I find. The Brazen Duet has given me new thoughts and feelings about characters I hadn’t fully gotten to know before and for that, I am truly grateful. Thank you, ladies, for once again bringing us mere readers an all-consuming, realistic couple with crazily real friends and family.

Start the duet with Brazen today!
