Coming Together by Poppy Dune
poppyduneBlurb:
Aloha, romance. Aloha, big blue sea. Aloha, handsome husband.
It’s been fourteen years since Justin and I got married, promptly got pregnant and buried under bills and diapers and jobs and playdates. Although our love remains steady and strong, an avalanche of daily details have taken us farther away from each other. I’ve lost count of how many years it’s been since we were truly alone.
But here we are now, in idyllic Hawaii, on the dream honeymoon we’ve been–well–dreaming about for years. There’s a roast suckling pig, my husband in a lei, and a sunset over the ocean that would put Bob Ross to shame. Still, we seem to be missing each other, like two hula dancers passing in the night.
I’ve got four days to put the spark back in this marriage and I’m bringing out the big guns: sexy dress, strappy heels, grotto sex to scandalize the other guests. But when the outside world starts infringing on this intimate scene, my husband’s eyes move to a hot new business prospect instead of hot little me.
If a honeymoon in paradise can’t bring us back together, do we really have a shot at this thing? Can we say aloha to each other again?

Somewhere along the way, I slipped. I let myself believe we could have it all. Now a dark, menacing shadow hovers between us, mocking us for daring to hope for a normal future.
And it’s come to collect on a blood oath.

review

That even after all these years together, I still wanted him like he wanted me.
Mind.
Body.
And Soul.”

Ok, I seriously loved this book. I’ve always wanted Susan and James’ story, since Susan told November about James asking her out everyday for two months, and about James being a playboy. But Susan Mayson is a big fat liar! In the best way possible of course. And I absolutely LOVE how CP stayed true to her writing style, true to her own voice, while effortlessly creating a story on characters she didn’t create. Susan and James are from Aurora Rose Reynolds, but CP kept their essence with her voice. It was AMAZING!!

The way the novel opens, with Susan in the present after shopping with November, with her thinking about her age and the laugh/scowl lines on her face, and showing some insecurity with the way she looks now, was perfect. I was absolutely captivated. And when they flashback, to when Susan and James first met, I was laughing, crying, and biting my lip in anticipation. What James and Susan went through just to be together, was both terrifying and so sweet at the same time. They fought to be together, and lord I’m glad they did.

CP Smith put her one liners throughout the novel that had me giggling, and thanking god I was in my house and not in public where people could see me grinning at my phone like a weirdo. I kept highlighting different quotes in the book, both parts that had me cracking up and parts that had me going awwweeee. And I love that it’s a running joke between the two that they dated for two months, or that James harassed her for two months, before they got together. Because she’s a “good girl”. And we can also blame James for Asher having all girls because “Cause God knows if he gives me grandaughters, I’ll end up killin’ someone…” and we know how that turned out! (Does anyone else picture Asher with gray hair when reading Until July because I sure did).

I give this 5 stars because I couldn’t find anything wrong with it. CP Smith stayed true to her writing style, with dual POVs and depth to the plot that goes beyond just one thing (multiple issues, crazy people, comedy to lighten the tension, with just enough tension to keep you hooked without being anxious) and I feel she truly did right by Susan and James. I think this would be the hardest couple to capture because they are the Matriarch and Patriarch of the Mayson crew, the first boom you read about, they are the ones who protect the new comers when they have no one else to protect them. Their love was the example for Asher, Trevor, Cash and Nico.

This was my second dive into the Happily Ever Alpha Kindle World, and I can’t WAIT for the release of all the books!

Part 2 of my Favorite Series!

6. Malory/Anderson Series by Johanna Lindsey

Reason why it’s my favorite: I think this was the first series I read that had a big family. A family that teased everyone mercilessly, one that would pick fights with each other, but God forbid you tried to mess with them. The Malory/Anderson family is huge, not always so happy, but super protective. And they raise their girls to be whatever they want to be, though Lord save the man that touches her before marriage.

7. Legion of Angels Series by Ella Summers

Reason why it’s my favorite: Leda is 100% badass. She’s an orphan who was taken in by a badass family and she learned to survive. She will do anything for her family, and that includes basically selling her soul. This is not a series that is all about the romance. This is a slow, slow, burn romance, but their love is worth it. But Leda’s main goal? To save her brother. Gimmie some super awesome women and super hot angels and I am one happy girl.

8. House of Payne Series by Stacey Gail

Reason why it’s my favorite: This series is filled with some hot tattoo artists, tons of angst, and breaking the sacred rule in the tattoo universe: don’t get your significant others name tattooed on you; it’s the kiss of death. These artists don’t care, and it is AWESOME. These alpha men want to take care of the women in their lives, but the women are perfectly capable doing it on their own.

9. Until Series by Aurora Rose Reynolds

Reason why it’s my favorite: This is a series that has you falling in love with a family. And it keeps going! Aurora has a series based on the Mayson children, and even a Kindle World releasing with 16 other authors writing in this universe. Which means I get more alpha Maysons in my life, and really, what more could you ask for?

10. Three Little Lies Series by Sara Ney

Reason why it’s my favorite: Sara Ney has a unique writing style, that really captures the technology generation. She uses texts, tweets, and emails to help you fall in love without the physical aspect of a relationship. And her books are all romantic comedies. No real tough situations in these. Looking for a light read? Pick up this series.

BONUS! The Wallflowers by Lisa Kleypas

Reason why it’s my favorite: Here’s another series filled with strong women in the Victorian Era. Women not afraid to take what they want, sometimes despite what society says. And their antics are ridiculous, but will have the reader cracking up the whole time.

My Favorite Romance Series

Here are my top 10 romance best series I’ve ever read! These are not ranked in any specific order (I think I’d have a heart attack trying to rank them). These are varied from sci-fi to historical romance, to dark and twisted to contemporary. From books that should come with trigger warnings, to books I laughed out loud with. I linked them to their Goodreads lists, but at the bottome I will link all their Amazon pages. Enjoy!

  1. The League/Nemesis Rising by Sherrilyn Kenyon

    Reason why it’s my favorite: It’s futuristic, intense, there’s lots of action, the writing is amazing, and Sherrilyn Kenyon is a master of creating worlds/universes and languages to compliment them. And she is able to interweave timelines so two books are happening simultaneously and effortlessly. Truly amazing.

  2. The Sterling Shore Series by C.M. Owens

    Reason why it’s my favorite: It’s a contemporary romance with tons of laughs. Plus, you really fall in love with the entire family. I loved reading every minute of the entire series.

  3. Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor Series by Lori Foster

    Reason why it’s my favorite: It’s so different from anything I’ve ever read. It was the first Lori Foster series I picked up, and I fell in love from the first page. And, subsequently, devoured anything she had written. If you look at my bookshelves, she takes them over.

  4. The Bridgerton Series by Julia Quinn

    Reason why it’s my favorite: Strong women in a Victorian setting, with men in status who support them? Um yes this is one of my favorites. The Bridgerton women are not afraid to go after what they want and the men learn to deal with it. Plus, I’m a sucker for big happy families and the Bridgertons, with their closeness to each other, is one of my favorite families. The characters, secondary and otherwise, are so dynamic, you can’t help but fall in love over and over again. 

  5. Mafia Ties Series by Fiona Davenport


    Reason why it’s my favorite: Insta-Love series with alpha men and alpha women not willing to be walked all over. Men who are devoted to their women and can’t be swayed. Women who aren’t blinded by love, but accept their men for who they are. Plus danger mixed in. What’s not to love?

 

Since this post is getting lengthy keep an eye out for part 2 of this post… My 10 favorite series part 2!

Reasonable Doubt (Reasonable Doubt #1) by Whitney G
20761374.jpgMy cock has an appetite.
huge and very particular appetite: Blonde, curvy, and preferably not a fucking liar… (Although, that’s a story for another day.)
As a high profile lawyer, I don’t have time to waste on relationships, so I fulfill my needs by anonymously chatting and sleeping with women I meet online.
My rules are simple: One dinner. One night. No repeats.
This is only casual sex. Nothing more. Nothing less.
At least it was , until “Alyssa”…
She was supposed to be a 27 year old lawyer, a book hoarder, and completely unattractive. She was supposed to be someone I shared law advice with late at night, someone I could trust with details of my weekly escapades.
But then she came into my firm for an interview—a college-intern interview, and everything fucking changed…

Everly (Striking Back #1) by S.M. Shade
25258166.jpgThe first time I met Mason Reed, we were standing naked in a bank, surrounded by guns.
That should have been a warning.
An MMA champion, trainer, and philanthropist, but not a man who gives up easily, Mason is trouble dipped in ink and covered in muscle.
Growing up in foster care, I’m well aware that relationships are temporary, and I do my best to avoid them. After a sheet clenching one night stand, I’m happy to move on, but Mason pursues me relentlessly. Sweet, caring, protective, and at times, a bossy control freak, this persistent man has climbed inside my heart, and I can’t seem to shake him.
After saving me from a life threatening situation, he’s also won something much harder to obtain. My trust. But does he deserve it? Is his true face the one he shows the world? Or is his charitable, loving manner only a thin veneer?
This book contains sexual situations and is intended for ages 18 and older.

This book has a ton of triggers so read cautiously. It is an amazing book and series but deals with dark themes and topics.

Scenes from the Hallway (Knitting in the City #6.5) by Penny Reid
38524539.jpgHAPPY VALENTINES DAY!
From the USA TODAY Bestselling romantic comedy series, ‘Scenes from the Hallway,’ Knitting in the City #6.5.
You know who I am.
I swear too much, I crack too many jokes, and I got a thing for Kat Tanner; a messy thing, a distracting thing, a getting-in-the-way-of-everything thing; a thing that makes being in the same room with the woman torture. Sometimes it’s the good kind. Mostly, it’s not.
What you don’t know is how it all started. You don’t know how we met, you might not know what happened in Vegas (or the morning after), and you definitely don’t know what happened after that.
You want to know the story before the story? Well… here you go.
But be careful what you ask for. As I’ve discovered the hard way, you might not like it.
‘Scenes from the Hallway’ is a companion short prequel/short story (11k words) for ‘Marriage of Inconvenience,’ and includes the first 3 chapters of the soon to be released novel! (‘Marriage of Inconvenience’ releases March 6, 2018.)
WARNING: This short story contains a lot of cussing. Do not download or read if you dislike curse words in novels.

36320338.jpg***MISADVENTURES ARE STANDALONE ROMANCES THAT CAN BE READ IN ANY ORDER***
It’s been years since June Bell shared a stolen moment with her girlhood crush, Kase McCasker. It’s been just as long since Kase’s father nixed the sale of the McCasker farm to expand the grounds of the Bell’s grand hotel. Now that Kase is back home for good, June might be the only person who can persuade him to reconsider the abandoned plan. But how can she face him again after he left her without a word?
Four years ago, unexpected news shook the foundation of Kase McCasker’s world. Escaping Falls Edge for college was the perfect excuse to chase his demons and bury his pain. Now, with a degree in hand and a void he can’t fill, he’s back in the little mountain town he thought he’d never call home again. Searching for purpose, he’s determined to put down roots and take over the struggling farm that’s been in his family for generations.
Time and distance haven’t taken the edge off his preoccupation with June, the spitfire daughter of his father’s rival. He hasn’t forgotten their time together and all the things they did and didn’t do. One look at her has him reconsidering the future and making a dangerous deal to win her over. Is a chance at her heart worth risking everything else?

  1. His Big Mountain Axe by Madison Faye
    39213534.jpgBeast. Monster. Outlaw. I’ve been called a lot of things, but let me promise you, a knight in shining armor ain’t f*ckin’ one of them.
    But when the man I’m supposed to kill lays a hand on her – the firecracker cocktail waitress with the soft lips and the sweet curves that make my pine tree grow – there’s no way I’m not stepping in.
    Beautiful, blonde, tempting as hell. She’s got a body that was made for me to claim, and legs that were born to spread around my bike. Or my waist.
    But I’m a man with a mission – a blood vendetta that has to be paid. Mixing it up with Larkin is a bad idea at best. At worst, it might get us killed. But once I feel that sweet little body of hers pressed against mine with my chopper rumbling between her legs, I know there ain’t a chance in hell I’m letting her go.
    I’m not here to save her. I’m here to take her – over my bike and across my bed.
    Pretty little Larkin is about to get a taste of how a real man claims his woman.
    Because up on my mountain, I carry a big axe.
    …And I know how to use it.

  2. Fast Burn (Body Armor #4) by Lori Foster
    35133833.jpgFor the woman who’s his perfect match, he’s willing to break the rules…
    The moment Brand Berry meets beautiful, driven Sahara Silver, the connection between them is electric. It’s also something he can’t pursue. Sahara wants him, sure—to join Body Armor, where his MMA skills, size and cocky attitude make him perfect for her elite crew of bodyguards. For Sahara, the agency always comes first, and Brand needs more. Yet when she’s kidnapped by men searching for her missing brother, he doesn’t hesitate.
    Somewhere along the way, flirting with Brand for the sake of business turned very personal. Despite his refusal to join Body Armor, it’s Brand who steps up when Sahara needs him most. Now there’s no more time for games, and no point denying the hunger they both feel. They’ll escape together or not at all. But if they survive, can Sahara finally surrender control to claim this blazing passion?

    The one that speaks to us incessantly. That voice we trust to make the right decisions, to keep us on a positive path, even when others try to bring us down.
    But what happens when that voice changes?
    When it’s no longer a voice of reason, a voice of comfort giving us a pep talk when we need one?
    What happens when that inner voice turns into a bully?
    You’re fat.
    Don’t you dare eat that.

    The Ash Brothers—they know how to handle their wood.

    I’m a hard man. A loner. Or so town gossip says. After having my heart sent through the chipper, I’ve kept to myself. I prefer the quiet of the woods to the ramblings of clingy women who think they can tame a wild mountain man.
    Until Mia. Now she’s all I think about.
    I should have stayed away. She’s too sweet for a brute like me, but I can’t stop wanting her, picturing her sated in my sheets.
    Mia knows just what kind of wood I’m working with. She’s the soft to my hard, the sugar to my bitter bark.
    And I love seeing her walk on the wild side.This book is approximately 15,000 words.

  5. Come A Little Closer by Kim Karr
    33985965.jpgI haven’t always been this bad…
    Up until recently, I was the kind of girl who wore white cotton panties and bent at the knees rather than the waist.
    Pomp and circumstance changed all that.
    Jaxson Cassidy was my first taste of bad, and I liked it more than I should have. Just not in the way I was meant to. I couldn’t help myself though. I found him irresistible. That sexy grin, those skilled fingers, and that dirty, dirty mouth were a lethal combination.
    I wasn’t supposed to want him. I wasn’t supposed to let him put his hands on me. I wasn’t supposed to do a lot of things…but I did.
    He wants to keep me close.
    I should push him away.
    He says he can help me.
    I’m not so sure.
    For some reason, he thinks there’s good left in me.
    What if he’s wrong?
    Everyone knows a good boy can’t turn a bad girl around.
    Everyone knows it’s always the other way.
    Everyone…except him.

Books to Get You Out of a Book Slump

We’ve all been there… you read an AWESOME, amazing book and then everything you try to read after it just can’t compare… and you’re stuck wanting to read a book, sometimes by authors you know you like, or wanting to read anything but you just can’t. Here are 10 books I try to read to get me back into my book flow.

  1. Becoming a Vincent (Wild Ones #1) by C.M. Owens
    35487055.jpgGenre: Romantic Comedy
    Setting: Tomahawk, WA.
    I found C.M. Owens earlier this year and MAN can this woman write. Everything from paranormal, to romantic comedies, she is amazing. The Wild Ones Series is like nothing I’ve read before. The antics the Wild Ones pull in Tomahawk make me want to find this place and move there. This is the story of Layla Vincent, Benson Nolans, and beards. Yes, I’m serious, beards. Benson and Layla have been friends for three years. While both feel a certain way for the other, neither is willing to take the risk of losing their friendship, until one night everything changes. Fireworks, crazy brothers pranks, and a water cannon fight ensues. This book is pure hilarity from the Wild Ones Rules at the beginning of each chapter to the challenges the community has. If you’re looking for a pick me up: this series is for you. More books are coming in this series, so keep a look out!
    Goodreads. Amazon. Barnes and Noble.
  2. When You Dare (Men Who Walk The Edge of Honor #1) by Lori Foster
    men1Genre: Mystery, Thriller, Suspense, Romance
    Setting: Kentucky
    This definitely has some triggers and the whole series is based off of darker themes. Although I highly recommend this book and the series, please read the description first. Dare Macintosh meets Molly Alexander in the most unusual setting: she was kidnapped by the same sex traffickers that kidnapped his best friend’s little sister. Dare tracked them down and rescued Alani, and the other women that were held there, but Molly didn’t look like the usual suspect. She was beaten and starved. So why was she kidnapped? Dare finds himself helping and protecting Molly. And doing something he was never supposed to do, especially not with a client: fall in love.
    Dare and Molly’s story is filled with suspense, crazy people, and love. It is a story with angst, action and adventure, and love that will blow you away. If you’re looking for a dark romance: this is the book for you. Lori Foster always writes amazing novels, but this is my favorite series of hers, and the first book I ever read from her.
    Goodreads. Amazon. Barnes and Noble.
  3. A Gentle Feuding by Johanna Lindsey
    774029Genre: Historical Romance
    Setting: Scotland
    Do you remember the first romance novel you read? The one that had *sex* in it? In high school, I read a lot of YA, and a lot of YA romance, but A Gentle Feuding was my first historical romance novel that started my downhill slide into addiction. It is the typical grudge match, starting with a misunderstanding, with some plaid and lots of manly Scottish men in their kilts. It is the story of Sheena, the jewel of the Fergusson tower, and Jamie MacKinnion, a violent man feared by all, and their love blossoming under years of clan duty dictating they hate each other.
    Because this was the first historical novel I read, I go back to it often when I need to re-read a book and get me out of a slump. Each time, I fall in love with Sheena and Jamie all over again. Each time, I yell at them both for being stubborn. And each time, I fall back down the rabbit hole that is the romance genre. *enter girlie sigh here*
    Goodreads. Amazon. Barnes and Noble.
  4. Property of Drex (Death Chasers #1) by C.M. Owens
    29516776Genre: Contemporary Romance
    Setting: Halo, Texas
    This is the second C.M. book on the list because it’s one of my favorites of hers. It’s a motorcycle club book, which ensures there’s death, drugs, guns, and some serious daddy issues. This book ends on a cliff hanger, but the second in the series doesn’t. The first two in the series follow Evie Marks and Drex Caine. Evie’s family is struggling financially since her father’s death so she does the only thing she can think to do, sell herself. She ends up with Drex Caine and the Death Dealers, and she is there permanently. The others don’t trust her, she doesn’t trust her feelings, and there’s dissent within the club. Evie struggles coming to terms with the fact that she loves life in the club, and Drex struggles with someone who once wanted to be a math teacher wanting to stay in the club. This book is inherently darker in it’s nature, but if you’re into the darker themed books, this one is so worth it. The first is even free on Amazon and B&N so download your copy.
    Goodreads. Amazon. Barnes and Noble.
  5. Born of Night (The League/Nemesis Rising #1) by Sherrilyn Kenyon
    2992061Genre: Sci-Fi, Romance
    Setting: 3000 years in the future.
    This was the first sci-fi book I ever read. I was working at a convenience store as a cashier, and a woman I was ringing up had this book with her and recommended it to me. Sherrilyn Kenyon has the amazing ability to interweave her stories together, creating multiple timelines and intricate stories. This is the first in the series, and it blows my mind every time I read it. Every. Time. This is the love story of ex-assassin Nykrian Quiakides and ballerina Kiara Zamir. It is the love story of how they find each other, and how they save each other (although Nyk would argue that Kiara saved him not the other way around.) I never thought I would be into the sci-fi thing, and in many ways I’m still not a big fan, but the universe Sherrilyn creates, and the languages she makes, are stunning. I have read the entire series three times (I think) and I always pre-order the books when they come out. The characters are dynamic, and you end up falling in love with characters you swore you would always hate. It’s truly stunning. Goodreads. Amazon. Barnes and Noble.
  6. The Duke and I (Bridgerton #1) by Julia Quinn
    110391Genre: Historical Romance
    Setting: London, England, 1813.
    This is the first in the Bridgerton series, and it is one that always warms my heart. Daphne and Simon struggle so much, and not in the typical “I’m a Duke/Duchess and cannot marry you because you’re beneath my station” way. Julia Quinn weaves a story filled with heartache, laughter, and a love that I want for myself. Daphne is an almost-on-the-shelf lady looking for a good husband, and hopefully a love match that her parents had. Simon is a duke looking to avoid marriage at all costs. Daphne is also the little sister of Simon’s best friend.
    Daphne and Simon’s love story starts with friendship, a fake courtship, and grows into love. I picked this book up at the library one day, and ever since, when I want to read a historical romance, I go to this book if I have nothing else. It is definitely one of my favorites.
    Goodreads. Amazon. Barnes and Noble.
  7. It Had to Be You (Chicago Stars #1) by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
    73070Genre: Contemporary Romance
    Setting: Chicago, IL.
    This is the love story of Phoebe Somerville and Dan Calebow. I don’t know if I can count how many times I have re-read this book. Phoebe is a Marilyn Monroe-type blonde bombshell who uses her good looks to make people think she’s an idiot. (Spoiler: she’s not). Dan Calebow is the coach for the Chicago Stars, a fictitious football team that Phoebe has just inherited from her dead father. Dan’s not happy, Phoebe’s not happy. The two struggle to find a balance, both professionally and personally.
    This novel has everything I love: football, women who are in power and ROCK it, men who find intelligence and women in power sexy, and romance. This is a mostly fun novel to read. There are some dark themes in it, which led to Phoebe’s act of the dumb blonde, but it is not so much that it weighs the book down. If you’re looking for some fun with football, you need to check this out.
    Goodreads. Amazon. Barnes and Noble.
  8. Guilty Pleasures (Anita Blake Vampire Hunter #1) by Laurell K. Hamilton
    30281Genre: Paranormal, Fantasy, Horror, Romance
    Setting: St. Louis, MO.
    If you’re looking for a traditional romance, move along. This is a 25 (26th coming this summer) book series that covers everything from vampire hunting, zombie animator, were-animals, polyamory, and lots and lots of death. There’s also some old school monsters/gods/goddesses in there too. Seriously, it’s a lot. It begins with Anita Blake and her single minded dislike for vampires (with very good reason) and being the Vampire Hunter with the most legal kills in her name, and her coming to terms with love. Love with many, many people. And what love means when it comes to working with the police department. It is one of the most original series I have ever read, and it’s always fun to re-read Guilty Pleasures to see how far Anita has come since she started out 10 years earlier. There’s lots of bloodshed, lots of sex, and lots of paranormal crap explained. Laurell weaves an intricate web, creating an entire world that I so want to live in.
    Goodreads. Amazon. Barnes and Noble.
  9. Fallen Crest High (Fallen Crest #1) by Tijan
    21936321Genre: YA/Contemporary Romance
    Setting: Fallen Crest, CA (it’s not a real place but Tijan has confirmed it’s somewhere in Cali).
    This series starts with Sam, Mason and Logan all in high school, but as the series continues you see them go to college. Sam’s mom divorces her dad and moves in with Mason and Logan’s father. Both parents put their children through hell, and Sam doesn’t deal with her mother well. Mason and Logan take Sam under their wing, protecting her from her mother and from the other school girls that are infuriated that Sam is living with the Kade brothers (because obviously their star football players and very popular), and that she starts dating Mason (the un-dateable of the two brothers.)
    I actually found this series while reading a different book, read the first chapter on Amazon for free, and was hooked. Mason, even in high school, is super protective of Sam and I adore it. Sam finding her way in life as more and more curve balls are thrown at her, while falling in love and gaining a brother, is dramatic, suspenseful, and everything I need when I want a darker, high school novel. Tijan always delivers the emotional punches to the gut in the absolute best way possible.
    Goodreads. Amazon. Barnes and Noble.
  10. #Nerd (Hashtag #1) by Cambria Herbert
    23493256Genre: Contemporary Romance
    Setting: Maryland
    This is your typical nerd girl/popular boy love story. Rimmel and Romeo seem like complete opposites, and they really are, but their love story is one of my favorites. Rimmel is the A+ scholarship student, hiding behind her baggy clothes and big glasses, afraid to make friends; and Romeo is the alpha Quaterback that’s looking to make a name for himself in the NFL. He is popular on campus, and is loved everywhere he goes. The growth of Rimmel and Romeo as individuals and as a couple, both coming to love and accept each other’s faults, is beautiful. When I need a good pick me up, I read this.
    It does have some darker themes, with crazy psycho stalkers and dealing with the death of Rim’s mother, but for the most part, it’s not a scary read. And the flow of the novel is perfect. It’s available on Kindle Unlimited so download it now!

The job is supposed to be easy:
Get in, get out, move on— everything I’m used to doing without a hitch.

The set-up makes this job even easier and it comes with a perk:
She’ll willingly sell herself to me at an auction, without knowing why I’m there.
I’ll purchase her body— and win her trust— at any price.

Dominating her is a treat as sweet as sin.
When I find out she’s a virgin, that’s the cherry on top.
A cherry I get to pop!

But this job is about to have a major f*cking hitch.
Both of us enjoy what I do to break her spirit and earn her trust, a little more than we should.

After I buy her body, will she steal my heart?

I moved from Ireland to New York City to pursue a career in acting.

Her ex cheated on her with her best friend, she says.
And they’ve both just entered the coffee shop!
Please pretend to be my boyfriend so I don’t seem so pathetic, she asks.
Well, I’m an actor, aren’t I?
So, how can I resist the pleading request from those pretty hazel eyes that match her name?
I’ll do her one better – I pretend to be her fiance.
Soon, we’re caught in a game of one up-manship with her snotty ex friend.
Like all my acting gigs, I play this one very well.
It turns out that Hazel brings me luck – and I do the same for her.
But this is all just pretend, right?
We’re not really going to get married on St. Patrick’s Day like we keep telling everyone, are we?

Maybe I’m playing the role a bit too well, because I find myself believing it’s real.

Lucky Charm is a full length standalone novel with no cheating and no cliffhangers, but with a very happy St. Patrick’s Day and ever after, and a whole bunch of Irish flavored steam.
