This is my first book by this author, the fifth in the Record series that can be read as a standalone. The series features the Maxwell siblings and this is Savannah’s story.

Although I haven’t read the previous books, I felt that Savannah and Lucas’ story can be read on its own without creating any confusion regarding the main characters. Savannah comes from a well-known family, her father and her brother, both prominent politicians. She just started as a newbie reporter at the Washington Post and moved in with boyfriend Easton.

The Atwood family has a long history with the Maxwell clan and Lucas and Savannah grew up together. His feelings for Savi grew stronger as they got older but there was a chance for them to get together until it was too late. His best friend is now with someone else and his shot at pro basketball will drive them further apart.

There is no denying Lucas’ love for Savi and she was aware of his feelings, but she valued their friendship too much and didn’t want to risk it even though they’d hooked up once. What irked me was Savi being so indecisive about her feelings for Lucas. The secondary characters, Savi’s brothers: Brady and Clay are an integral part in Savannah’s relationship with Lucas. Meanwhile, her boyfriend Easton has a chip on his shoulder regarding her “friendship” with Lucas and I don’t blame him at all. I just felt sorry for the guy. Both the Maxwell and Atwood families seem to be the picture-perfect dynasties but I suspect that there are simmering issues behind the scenes. I guess I have to read the other books to find out if I am right.

This book is written in dual points of view and I really like the author’s writing style: fast-paced with excellent character development, especially Savi having her epiphany in the last quarter of the book. The relationship between the main characters gave me a whiplash during their younger years (the author gave the reader some snippets of their back story), but the latter half of the book made them deal with their trust issues and honesty. Their relationship isn’t perfect and they know they have to make it work, a healthy attitude for any couple; Lucas and Savi’s story made me want to read the rest of the books in the series. All in all, this best-friends-to-frenemies-to-lovers contemporary romance will warm your heart in the cold winter days.

BLOG TOUR ~ INSATIABLE by Melanie Harlow

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

Today we are thrilled to be on tour with 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.

Sawyer?” I said in disbelief. Breaking into a huge grin, she started to run. 

I was still standing there in shock when she barreled into me, throwing her arms around my neck. She smelled fucking fantastic. Feminine, sweet, delectable. 

“What are you doing here?” I asked, trying to hug her back without getting sweat or paint on her. “I thought you didn’t get in until Thursday.”

“I changed my ticket.” She let go just enough to smile up at me impishly. “I’m glad to see you too.”

I laughed. “I’m glad to see you. You just surprised me is all.”

“That was my plan.” She stepped back, and I figured my odor was probably repulsing her. 

“I stink, sorry. I went for a run earlier and I never showered. Then I painted the garage.”

“I never mind the smell of sweat. It means hard work.” She brightened. “Will you run tomorrow? I’d love to go with you.

“Sure. We can run tomorrow. I’m off again.”

“Great! Although I’m probably way out of shape.” She made a face. “My work schedule is so crazy, I don’t run as much as I used to.”

“You look great,” I told her. And it was true—she did look great. Maybe not quite as skinny as the last time I’d seen her, but the added curves looked good on her. My eyes wandered without my brain’s permission to her slightly fuller chest and rounder hips. Quickly, I attempted to look at her face again, but then my gaze lingered on her mouth. I remembered what it had looked like the other night in my fantasy as she’d wrapped her lips around my cock and moaned like it was the best thing she’d ever tasted. 

My dick twitched beneath my running shorts, and I cleared my throat. “You’ve got a favorite murder? Is there something I need to know?”

She glanced down at her shirt and smiled. “It’s a podcast about true crime. I’m addicted.”

“Never heard of it.”

A sound of exasperation escaped her. “You live under a rock! I can’t believe you’re still not on social media.”

“Yes, you can.”

“Okay, I can, but it makes it really hard to stalk you.” 

I shook my head. “People like you are exactly why I don’t want to be on social media.”

She hit me on the shoulder. “I’m kidding! I just want to keep up with your life. I miss you.”

“So come home more often. Talk to my face.”

She grinned. “I do like seeing your face. Want to go grab a beer? Maybe some food?”

“Sure.”
