ITUE - CR banner

Sometimes you meet people who are out of this world, so you make them a part of yours.

We can’t tell you how excited we are to be able to share the extraordinary cover for IN THE UNLIKELY EVENT, an all-new must-read contemporary romance from USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen is coming 19th November

In the Unlikely Event AMAZON

A one-night stand born from vengeance in a foreign land.

An explosive chemistry neither of us could deny.

We signed a contract on the back of a Boar’s Head Pub napkin that said if we ever met again, we would drop everything and be together.

Eight years and thousands of miles later, he’s here.

In New York.

And he’s America’s music obsession.

The intangible Irish poet who brings record executives to their knees.

The blizzard in my perfect, unshaken snow globe.

Last time we spoke, he was a beggar with no intention of becoming a king.

But a king he became, and now I’m his servant.

I’m not the same broken princess Malachy Doherty put back together with his callused hands.

I have a career I love.

A boyfriend I adore.

An apartment, a roommate, a life.

I changed. He changed, too.

But Mal kept the napkin.

Question is, will I keep my word?

A coming of age, enemies to lovers, contemporary romance
filled with angst and all the feels.

I should have told her everything.

How much I loved her.
How much I’ve always loved her.
But I didn’t.
I couldn’t.
I just wasn’t made that way.

Instead… I claimed her.
Teased her.
Taunted her.
Worshipped her.
Until… I broke her.

My best friend.
My savior.
My girl.

From my mind to my heart, to every single bone in my body.
She owned me.
I was hers.

Every look.
Every kiss.
Every touch.
Every tear.

It was always her.

The only thing I feared more than losing her was forgetting her.
I hated how much I needed her.

She was mine.
Always and forever.

I hated her then.

But Harley Jameson was about to find out how much…

I LOVED her now.

This is book two of Jackson and Harley’s story. As expected, this pair’s love and hate relationship continues with a lot of drama along the way. If you haven’t read book one, then I strongly suggest you read it first and find out their back story and not leave you in the dark.

I would have thought that when these two got older their relationship would become smoother but I was wrong. The previous book ended when Harley was fifteen and she caught Jackson and another girl with his pants down literally. And oh boy, the massive cliff-hanger made me want to throw my kindle on the floor and stomp on it. Book two starts when the pair is now in their mid-twenties and their relationship is still as confusing as ever. The alternating narrative between Harley and Jackson switching from the present to the past (the past was not in chronological order) gave this reader a whiplash from figuring out who did what. But one thing that stands out from these characters is that they are still immature and I felt like banging their heads together.

When Harley gets knocked up and a “shotgun” wedding follows, she still keeps hating on Jackson and this boy/man is as insensitive as ever or so it seems. Jackson presents this stoic facade to hide his fears and Harley’s incessant harping on how much she hates him was exhausting. Their story reminds me of that movie War of the Roses without the violence but it does get better.

To my relief in the last quarter of the book, the author gave the main characters more depth which redeemed them. Jackson opens up to Harley about how he truly feels and tells her of his fears. Harley is more accepting and supportive. All the lies are blown open and et voilá, they find out that being honest and talking to each other is the key to a happy-ever-after ending.

Even though the first half of the book was a bit confusing I couldn’t put this book down because I loved the drama between Harley and Jackson. I got my kicks on trying to guess who’s going to give in first on their verbal tug-of-war. This was a quick and enjoyable read and we finally get to the dramatic conclusion of Harley and Jackson’s saga.

INSATIABLE by Melanie Harlow is LIVE!

After all those years of being just friends, suddenly we’re insatiable.

Today we are thrilled to be sharing USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow’s all-new irresistible friends-to-lovers stand-alone romance, INSATIABLE

Insatiable AMAZON

I didn’t mean to see him naked–it was an accident.

It had to be, right?

Because Noah McCormick and I have never been anything more than friends. In all the years I’ve known him, he’s never once laid a finger on me. And even though he was a cute lifeguard at 16 and a hotter-than-hell sheriff’s deputy at 34, he’s always been that protective guy I could trust to keep his hands to himself. I never wanted to mess with that.

Until I walked in on him getting out of the shower and saw his hard, muscular body totally bare and dripping wet. At that moment I never wanted to mess with anything so badly in my entire life.

I should have covered my eyes. Said I was sorry. At the very least, I could have handed him a towel.

After all, I was only in town for a few days, and he was just doing me a favor by escorting me to my sister’s wedding. It wasn’t a real date.

But I didn’t apologize. And he didn’t cover up.

(Talk about a hot mess.)

After all those years of being just friends, suddenly we’re insatiable.

He’s made it clear he’s not interested in romance. Which is fine with me because

I’ve got a plane ticket back to my real life at the end of the week.

It’s all in fun…or is it?

Insatiable is the third book in the Cloverleigh Farms series but can be read as a standalone. This friends-to-lovers romance will thrill you to bits. Meg and Noah’s story will make you swoon and sweep you off your feet.

Noah McCormick is the deputy sheriff of a small town in Michigan. Loyal, protective and alpha to the core, his main goal is to be there for his family especially his twin brother Asher who was born with cerebral palsy. Noah’s life is all about his job and family so a serious relationship is not on his agenda, he is definitely a confirmed bachelor. When Meg comes home to attend her sister’s wedding, she meets up with Noah again and unfamiliar new feelings surface when they got together.

Meg Sawyer is a successful lawyer in DC and her family own Cloverleigh Farms. She was the one who went away to have a career outside their small town. Career-driven and a workaholic her relationships always end up being a failure. Now that she gets to meet Noah again after a long time the gangly teenager is now a hot police officer and the way she looks at him has also changed. Is it time for both of them to shift the boundaries?

Told in alternating points of view, Meg and Noah’s story is about family and loyalty. And when this pair’s friendship morphed into friends-with-benefits, the outcome is sort of predictable. Noah’s stubborn attitude towards a lasting commitment and his reasons why he doesn’t want to be in a serious relationship frustrated me. It takes another family member to give him that nudge, making him think deeper about his choices in life. Whilst Noah is the stubborn alpha, Meg is a strong independent woman willing to take that first step and risk her heart and this is why I love her character so much. This book was a quick read for me simply because I couldn’t put it down. No over-the-top drama and third parties involved just pure entertainment.

For those who haven’t read the previous books in the series, the other Sawyer sisters play significant roles in this couple’s story. The secondary characters are an interesting mix of lovable personas and are as entertaining as the main ones. A dirty-talking cop, a smart and sexy lawyer, this friends-to-lovers romance will make you sigh and swoon. I really enjoyed reading this series and I cannot wait to read the next one. Are we going to read about Sylvia’s story next? I certainly hope so.
