“I love being naked. Naked is awesome.” ~Cooper Miles
Life used to be an endless party. I worked hard and played harder—as often as possible. But things change—people change—and lately the party life isn’t doing it for me.
Enter Amelia. It isn’t every day that you meet a girl in a wedding dress in a bar. A girl whose life just took a sharp left turn she wasn’t expecting.
Kissing her? It’s no big deal—totally just for fun. She’s had one hell of a day, and a little kissing lesson by Cooper is bound to make her feel better. Getting in a little dig at the dumbass who left her at the altar is a bonus.
The invitation back to her hotel? That, I wasn’t expecting.
Saying yes to her is reckless. Not because I’m a stranger to a one-night-stand. And not because she’s in a wedding dress, and the words this is my first time cross her lips.
Saying yes to Amelia is reckless because she’s making me feel things I’ve never felt before—big things. Nothing scares me. But this girl? She might be magic, and I have no idea what to do with that.
Claire Kingsley writes smart, sexy romances. Her books feature sassy and often quirky heroines, swoony heroes who love their women hard, panty-melting sexytimes, romantic happily ever afters, and ALL the big feels.
She can’t imagine life without coffee, her Kindle, and the sexy heroes who inhabit her imagination. She’s living out her own happily ever after in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and three kids.

OK FINE JUST KIDDING.
There are books you read where the hero is so hurting, so utterly broken that you want to snatch him from the pages, hug him, and never let him go. Even when he’s an utter a-hole, you still love him.
Cooper Miles is not that guy, though I did want to snatch him from the pages to go along for the ride. Cooper is a free spirit, but he’s dedicated to his family and the vineyard. He’s energetic, to the point that most can’t keep up with the conversations he has. He’s full of life, passionate, loyal, and overall an abundance of human being. He’s also a stage 5 clinger.
Amelia Hale is a woman in the midst of self-discovery. Left at the altar on her wedding day, she isn’t sure where to go next. Amelia ends up on the Cooper roller coaster, starting with a Cooper-Moon, and ending with a broken heart. (Spoiler alert! It all gets fixed.)
The Miles family series has a string of events that isn’t over yet. Everything keeps ending on a cliffhanger, DAMMIT, which keeps you wanting more. Of course, Claire isn’t indulging in the Alpha Ever After group addiction and pumping out Hidden Miles so we can all read it tomorrow, but we forgive her…
Reckless Miles sent me down a Claire Kingsley rabbit hole, and like an addict started buying every book I could just to feed it. Of course, I don’t ever read things nice and slow to hold me over until the next book comes. NO I have to binge read it all and then cry that I read everything. But it was sooooooo worth it.
Kingsley creates a family that leaves you wishing you could jump through the pages to be a part of it, to drink wine with them, and go on a Cooper-Moon. She’ll have you in stitches from laughing too hard and crying because of the drama. You’ll be rooting for Mama Miles at the same time wanting to jump her children’s fictional bones.
I changed my mind: Don’t read this book. Why? Because unless you’re ready to spend more money on books, you shouldn’t do it to yourself. Also, I want the Miles family to myself.
Anyway, I’m gonna go cry in a corner and rock myself to sleep until I can get Hidden Miles. ARE YOU HAPPY CLAIRE? ARE YA?
