Something’s Brewing Between Friends…

Rachel Miller knows opening a café with coffee and pastries will make her struggling bookstore the place to hang out. But when the bank turns her down and her best friend Shane steps in, she vows business will never ruin their friendship.

Gourmet ice-cream maker Shane O’Hare knows food, not women. To sweep Rachel off her feet, he secretly sells his beloved ’67 Shelby Mustang and becomes a partner in her café. And then she sets him up with a friend.

As they build the café together, and Rachel learns what Shane has sacrificed for her, she finds herself falling for him. Now way too much is riding on the success of this business venture—her career, her best friend, and her heart.

 Review:

I really enjoyed this book.  It was my first book by Kylie Gilmore and it was amazing.  Kylie does an incredible job of drawing readers into the story.  Her characters are amazing and I felt a connection to Rachel and Shane.  The emotion in this book was displayed perfectly through how the characters acted and talked.  I definitely look forward to reading more books by Kylie in the future.

4.5 stars

Everything in Duke Grayson’s life was all he could ever ask for: A loving family, loyal friends, a beautiful girlfriend, and a scholarship to his top choice college.

From the moment they meet, Duke is drawn to her, not only for her natural beauty and her stunning crystal blue eyes, but because he’s aware there’s more to this girl than just his alluring pull to her. He senses secrecy and fear.

Throughout the year, their bond grows stronger, and his feelings for her become undeniable. Just when he is about to express his love, tragedy strikes and Raya disappears.

For six years, Duke is tortured by his struggles, as he’s unable to find her and blames himself for failing to protect her. Until the day, she’s found, and he’s given a second chance. Will Duke become her beacon of hope and make her see that it’s the little things that make life worthwhile? Can Raya overcome her fears and fight against the terrors that haunt her? Or will her dark and torturous past be too much for her to battle against?

Excerpt

With a quick pace, I give Mrs. Robinson my test and race out of the class only to crash into Duke.

“Whoa!! Slow down!” He steadies me with his arms.

I chuckle, “Sorry, I’m just happy to get away from Jose. I’m happy this is the last class with him.”

“Me, too. He’s gotten in the way of a lot of things and I can’t fucking stand him. It’ll be alright, Raya. He won’t bother you anymore.” He caresses my arm for a few seconds and then pulls away, clearing his throat. “So, uhh, what did Taylor want?”

I glance away to avoid his eyes, “He asked me out on a date.”

“He finally did it, huh? Took him forever.”

My head snaps to look at him, “Wait. What do you mean?”

He laughs and shakes his head, “After the Halloween party, he asked me if he should ask you out and I told him to go for it. Honestly, I thought he would have asked you out weeks ago. I don’t know what took him so long.”

My heart drops and an unbearable sadness falls over me. “Oh, is that right?”

“You know he’s crazy about you. You should give him a chance. He’s a really good guy.”

I close my eyes and try to force back the tears that are threatening to escape. My heart aches at the loss of Duke’s affection. All I want is him and I know I won’t ever get it. “I’m not so sure. I like him, but not as much as he likes me. I don’t want to rush anything. Besides, I told him that I can’t make any promises. I’ll be very busy with work during the break and won’t have much free time.”

“Ehh, he’ll wait. He doesn’t have a lot going on anyway.” He glances at his phone and responds to a text message. “Okay, well I’m going to catch Melanie before she heads off to her next class. I’ll talk to you later, okay?”

“Okay. Tell her I’ll see her in English.”

“I will.” He waves at me as he heads off to go get his girlfriend. At that moment, I realize that my feelings for Duke are purely one-sided and I need to get a grip on them. A single tear escapes and I quickly wipe it away. I promised myself that I wouldn’t stand in the way of Duke and Melanie. I’m not like that and I refuse to be the reason for a breakup. Their friendship means so much to me and I won’t ruin it.

Maybe I should go out with Taylor, but how can I with Craig being home? Hopefully, he has a conference coming up soon and will have to go out of town. I’m going to have to find a way to explain this to Taylor. I hope he’ll understand. I grab my cell phone and send a quick text to him.

Me: Meet me at work tomorrow.

I head down the hallway, making my way to endure the next final in line. A few minutes later, I hear my phone beep with an incoming text notification. I grab my cell to read the message sent from Taylor.

Taylor: So, is that a yes?

I laugh to myself. He always gets a head of himself.

Me: It’s a maybe. I’d like to take things slow so if you want come visit me at work.

Taylor: Of course! What time is your shift?

Me: From 11-7

Taylor: Okay, I’ll see you there. Maybe we can do lunch?

Me: Yeah, that sounds good. See ya tomorrow. J

Taylor: See ya then sweetie 😉

I smile at his text and think about seeing him tomorrow. He really is a nice guy and maybe I should listen to Duke and give him a chance. My hopes and wishes are slowly diminishing and I can use any bit of happiness I can get right now. Maybe Taylor is just what I need.

Blurb

They say men like a lady in the living room and a whore in the bedroom. I never knew the sentiment was reciprocal. Until I met Jax Knight. A gentleman in public, a commanding, dirty talking rogue in the bedroom.

Daughter of legendary fighter “The Saint,” Lily St. Claire knows firsthand how fighters can be. As the owner of a chain of MMA gyms, she’s no stranger to aggressive, dominating, and possessive men. That’s why she’s always kept her distance. But the day Jax Knight walks through her door she’s captivated by his charm. Stunningly handsome, well mannered, Ivy League educated, and confident, he shatters all the preconceived notions she’d come to think were true about men who trained to fight.

But falling for someone so soon after her breakup wasn’t something she’d planned on. And definitely not something her ex plans to allow.

She didn’t know what she was missing…until he found her.
Maxwell Knight was dangerously good-looking, seductively charming, and definitely

man; it was all smooth sailing. That was until one night, when she met someone
who made her feel things she’d never felt before–dangerous, heart pounding,
breathless heat. Never imagining she would see him again, Jeanella has no idea what to do when fate steps in and thrusts Maxwell Knight into her life, just as things were
beginning to change around her. When she lands her dream job and travels to New
York for Fashion Week, can she focus on her career instead of on Maxwell?
Will she ignore all the danger signs and jump straight into his arms; or would she
miss out on the chance of finding something great?

Fall by Rachel Van Dyken
If you look up British in the dictionary…A-list celebrity Jamie Jaymeson’s name would be next to it. Along with charming, witty, man-whore, and a lot of other adjectives that he wouldn’t appreciate being attached to his name.
He has everything in the world going for him.
Until fate decides his number’s finally up.
Caught in a compromising position that really wasn’t his fault to begin with (really it wasn’t)—Jaymeson’s been told by his agent to lay low in the one town he swore he’d never return to—the seventh circle of hell, known by its residents as Seaside, Oregon.
Two months? He can do anything for two months. Especially if it means getting a part in the new book-to-movie series that has girls all over the world swooning.
Play nice? Keep it in his pants? Please. He played an alien once—he was going to totally rock it.
Until a certain someone who he may or may not have publicly humiliated—rejected, then humiliated again, suddenly pops up next door.
Self control has a way of flying out the window when the one girl you can’t have—is suddenly dangled right in front of you.
But Priscilla isn’t just off limits—she’s a pastor’s daughter and barely legal to boot. So Jaymeson does the one thing he swore he’d never do—he tries to be friends. With a woman.

He wants to date her.
She wants to date someone else.
He wants to kiss her.

Review

I really enjoyed reading this novella about Clare and Logan’s wedding! It was simply amazing and JL Berg has an awesome writing style that keeps readers hooked.  The novella didn’t take me long to read since it was only 106 pages but it was so worth it! I loved getting to read about Clare and Logan’s wedding.  It made me cry but the tears were tears of happiness! If you have read the other books in the series make sure you pick up this one too….you’ll be happy you did!

5 stars

AM Madden

She also uses every free moment of her time writing, while raising teenage boys.

A.M. Madden 20 Fun Facts

  1. I am equal parts Jersey girl, Italian and hopeless romantic.
  2. I’ve been a romance novel junkie since teenage years. Forever, by fellow Jersey girl Judy Blume, was the first book I re-read over and over.

  12. My dream is to take my husband and boys to Italy one day.
  13. One of the most exciting moments since becoming an author was when R.K. Lilley started following me on Twitter.
  14. My greatest accomplishments are my boys.
  15. I’m a great cook but an awful baker.
  16. Technology hates me.
  17. I am always thrilled whenever I see dolphins at the Jersey shore.
