5 out of 5 stars

A Real Good Bad Thing is Lauren Blakely’s newest standalone. It has the same Lauren feel with the added suspense and I am here for it.
Jake was in the business of recovering stolen goods not in the business of falling in love. Especially when they mixed. Been there, done that, hit with betrayal and refuses to even get the T-shirt. He was in Flamingo Key to catch a theft. Who he didn’t expect was her. A beautiful, witty, smart woman who was doing the very same thing except it was personal.
Ruby was in the Islands to work. She had a dive tour scheduled but she was also there for answers. It turns out that the man she met and wanted to see over and over again was after the same answers. The question was: could she trust him? After being betrayed by men she once loved, she wasn’t sure she could trust this stranger but was he the only person who could help her with this mystery?
No way am I spoiling this fun and sexy adventure! I will say that I ♥️ Jake and Ruby. They are both badasses who know how to have fun and fight for justice.
5 out of 5 stars

A Real Good Bad Thing is Lauren Blakely’s newest enemies-to-lovers romance. This is a sexy, suspenseful story full of witty banter, heart and trust. Ruby and Jake are in the same place for the same reason but with different motivations. There’s an instant spark when they meet, but once they find out they might be on opposite sides, they vow to keep it professional. You know what they say… Can Ruby trust Jake to be honest with her? Will Jake trust that Ruby won’t double cross her? It’s a fun ride full of diamonds, the ocean, friends and surprises!





Enemies turn to lovers, but can they trust each other as they chase the same prize? A sexy romantic comedy adventure from #1 NYT Bestseller Lauren Blakely…

I live my life by three simple rules. Don’t mix business with pleasure. Always work solo. And family comes first.

But when I head to the tropics for a quick job and meet a fiery woman who makes my pulse roar, I can’t resist bending the first rule for her.

Trouble is, after we spend a scorching night together on the beach, I discover she’s my new enemy. The quick-witted and clever beauty is on a treasure hunt for the same damn prize – beating me in a race to find millions in stolen diamonds.

See you later, sexy stranger.

Too bad I keep bumping into my gorgeous rival all over this tropical paradise as we chase clues.

Maybe it’s better to partner up. But, the more time we spend together sneaking into nightclubs and art galleries, the harder it is to keep my hands off her. And soon, I’m not just sleeping with my very irresistible enemy.

I’m starting to give her my heart.

That breaks my biggest rule of all. Don’t ever fall in love. Because it always screws you over.

*Note: A Real Good Bad Thing will be entirely new to most of you! Some of you might have read an older series of mine called The Jewel series (now off sale). That two-book storyline serves as the source material for this new story, which has been changed to 1st person, and turned into a standalone, with all new dialogue, motivations, setting and so on! But if there’s a touch of the familiar to some of you that’s why!

Release Day & Review – The While Time, Catherine Bybee

November 14, 2023 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By



D’Angelo’s, Book 4

November 14,, 2023








Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

The Whole Time is the fourth book in the D’Angelo’s series by Catherine Bybee. I’m loving this series full of Italians, family, friends, wine, food and love. We’ve met both Serena (family friend and Chloe’s best friend) and Ryan (Emma’s brother) before and I was so excited when I found out they were getting a story. Together! They are both wild, carefree, not interested in following in the footprints of their families and hard workers. When they meet at Emma’s wedding, sparks fly and some flirty shenanigans just make the night epic. Ryan knows Serena is skittish, but he’s in for the long haul. He’s going to wait her out, charm her and make her fall for him. It’s not as hard as he thought it was going to be! Serena wants to be on her own. Take care of herself and earn money her way. Being with Ryan jeopardizes that, right? He’s rich, she’s not. What will people think? Turns out, Ryan is more down to earth and sweeter than she thought. He’s also not flaunting his money and he works hard to earn his own. So what’s holding her back? Nothing really! When Serena decides she’s in, she jumps! I loved these two! They are perfect for each other. While both wild, they are also grounded. They are also adults who communicate. Serena may be less forthcoming, but Ryan knows this and loves it about her. A few secrets won’t tear them apart. I loved seeing the family again! Overall, I loved it! I laughed, teared up, cheered and smiled a lot. Ryan is swoonworthly!

The Stand-In by Kristen Proby is now live! 


From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby comes THE STAND-IN, the newest novel in her beloved Single in Seattle series, featuring Drew Montgomery!


I don’t like my new boss. Not at all.

London Ambrose is a spoiled billionaire’s daughter. And now she’s the new co-owner of the Seattle football team, but that doesn’t mean that she knows diddly squat about football. 

There’s nothing I hate more than having someone micromanaging me, shadowing my every move, and giving me their two cents on Every. Little. Thing. as I coach MY defensive line. 

I don’t care about new team jerseys and branding or answering her million and one questions about how I do my job. But, I can’t help but come to her defense when an old flame shows up and starts harassing her. I’m a Montgomery. We don’t let anyone mess with women.

Now, I’m suddenly in a fake relationship, pretending to date the gorgeous billionaire and learning so many surprising things about this captivating woman that I just can’t seem to stay away from her.   

When the lines between our fake relationship and real relationship blur, and my initial distaste for her turns into desire, I find myself coaching the most important game of my life – do I let my guard down or do I let London Ambrose walk away forever?

5 out of 5 stars

The Stand-In is the fifth book in the Single in Seattle series by Kristen Proby. You can read each book as standalone but I recommend reading the series since this second-generation is so much fun, and it’s always a great time to catch-up witht their parents. 
Drew Montgomery was not a fan of the new co-owners especially London Ambrose. She came to the office for a few hours a day and for some reason she just irked him. She was nice enough but didn’t know anything about football and didn’t even show up to any of the games. As the newest and youngest quarterback coach, it would be nice to have a boss who knew the sport or at least watched it. Why come into the office, he didn’t get it until he offered to be her fake date for the evening, and that one evening changed everything…
London thought Drew hated her. Then he very sweetly came to her rescue and they started to get to know each other. He learns that just because she is a daughter of a billionaire that she is down to earth, sweet and loves the work she does with the team and other businesses. She is a hard worker and a complete badass. She learns that Drew loves the game, his family, and the boss when he needs to be. Together, they are so much! This is all new to the both of them and it’s a beautiful thing. I can’t wait for the next book!

Release Blitz & Review – The Rules of Dating My One-Night Stand

November 12, 2023 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By


Title: The Rules of Dating My One-Night Stand
Authors: Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 12, 2023


Rule number one for having a one-night stand: Don’t fall for the girl.


After a lengthy dating slump, I finally met someone who sparked my interest.
Well, first the sparks flew when we argued. Later in the evening those sparks ignited into something more.
I was drawn to Devyn, in a way I hadn’t felt in a really long time.
Needless to say, I was disappointed when she abruptly left after our amazing night together.
I couldn’t stop thinking about her. But she hadn’t even given me her number.
In a city with eight-million people, I figured I’d never see Devyn again.
So imagine my surprise when I knocked on the door of an apartment in the building I lived in, and none other than my one-night stand stood on the other side.
If I thought Devyn didn’t want anything to do with me before, that was nothing compared to how she felt after finding out I was the landlord and she was about to be evicted…
And that was just the first surprise that would rock my world when it came to the mystery woman in apartment 410.

Rules of Dating My One-Night Stand is the third book in the The Law of Opposites Attract by one of my favorite writing duos, Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. You can read each book as standalone but I recommend reading the series, it’s fantastic! The storylines. The characters. I was psyched for this book since we got a little glimpse at the end of the last book. 

Owen and Devyn’s one-nightstand was very unexpected in the best of ways. Owen hadn’t been interested in a woman in years and his heart skipped a beat when he saw her in the bar. Devyn just needed a breather, she had no idea she would end up in a hotel room with a stranger. Then ghost him. She definitely didn’t expect to see him at her door a few days later… 
And he still wanted her even though she felt that she needed to push him away. That he didn’t need to be mixed up with her complicated life. She knew he deserved better and she didn’t know how long she was going to be in New York taking care of her teenage siblings. She didn’t want to hurt him. Owen just wanted to be there for her even if they were just “friends.” Will Devyn let her walls down even to let Owen in?
I loved, loved, loved this one! Owen is such a sweetheart and Devyn has such a big heart. Of course, they are also explosive together. In all seriousness, their relationship isn’t easy especially with some twists and turns but one thing was always there. Support. I loved catching up with the crew and can’t wait for Brayden’s story! 
5 out of 5 stars

The Rules of Dating My One-Night Stand is the third book in the The Law of Opposites Attract by the fabulous writing duo of Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. I’m enjoying this series and I have to be honest, I haven’t been a fan of Owen’s at all. But I wanted to read his book and I’m so glad I did! After getting to know more about him, I realize he was just looking out for his friends because he wants what’s best for them. He’s actually a loving, caring, sweet man which didn’t come through to me in the last few books. But once he meets, Devyn, a woman he spent one fantastic night with, he can’t stop thinking about her. She was gone in the morning and he never thought he’d see her again. Then he finds out she’s living in his building even if she’s just there temporarily. He can’t believe his luck! But she’s not all in. She has a lot to deal with and her life is in California. He needs to have her in his life even if it’s just as friends. He’s willing to wait and be there for her hoping she’ll want more. They get closer and finally admit they both want more. Now they just have to get past all the obstacles life keeps throwing at them and hope they make it out together. I love this group of friends and their loyalty, fun, antics and comradery. Devyn was also great! She had a lot going on and it was nice to see her open up to Owen. I’m looking forward to Brayden’s story!

Release Blitz & Reviews – Christmas Cupid, Ilsa Madden Mills

November 2, 2023 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By



Christmas Cupid by Ilsa Madden-Mills is now live!


From #1 Amazon Bestselling Author Ilsa Madden-Mills comes a brand new enemies to lovers holiday novella (40,000 words) about finding love in unexpected places.

Dear Sneaky Santa

I’d like to have a word about your sense of humor. Was it really necessary to stick me, a professional hockey player nursing an injury and avoiding the media, in an isolated cabin with a bratty, boot-designing princess who seems to have made it her mission to despise me? I mean, come on, what did I ever do to you?

And let’s talk about our first encounter. Was it your intention for her to barge in on me while I was enjoying a soak in the tub? It wasn’t exactly my finest moment, and I’m sure she didn’t appreciate the view of my massive body floundering around as I tried to grab a towel.

Now, I’m stuck with her, thanks to a mutual acquaintance, in the middle of a snow blizzard, navigating through bear attacks, sketchy neighbors, and whole lot of tension. I had plans, Santa, plans to escape to Cabo and forget about the world, not to be trapped with a woman who thinks I’m unworthy of her time just because she can’t stand hockey players.
Oh, and speaking of our delightful Iris, she’s stingier with her food than Scrooge was with his pennies! I’m not asking for a feast, but a guy’s got to eat! And could you possibly turn her yippy dog into a reindeer or something? It would certainly add to the Christmas spirit and save my eardrums.

I’m trying to rediscover the meaning of Christmas, and you throw me into this chaos? Is this some kind of test, or are you just having a jolly laugh up there in the North Pole?

So here’s my Christmas wish, Santa: sprinkle a bit of your magic and either get me out of here or be a Cupid and ignite a fiery, undeniable passion between us, because right now, this scenario is frostier than a snowman.

5 out of 5 stars

Christmas Cupid is a Christmas novella by Ilsa Madden Mills which had me laughing out loud, swooning and smiling a lot. It’s an enemies-to-lover, close proximity holiday story. Some of my favorite tropes! Kyler and Iris are stuck in the mountains, in a cabin, in the snow. They do not like each other and it’s not a secret. Over the course of the few days they are there, they warm up to each other as the temperature outside drops. Before they know it, they are decorating, knitting, cooking and really enjoying each other’s company. Once the lust-filled tension takes over, and they give in to their attraction, will they regret it in the morning. Or will they realize they have more in common than they thought and they are actually really great together? Oh boy! I really enjoyed this story. Kyler is sexy and freaking hilarious and Iris is nutty and funny. Together they had me laughing and cheering for them! Wouldn’t mind seeing them again, wink, wink!



Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Christmas Cupid is Ilsa Madden-Mills newest novella. Christmas with a sprinkle of Valentine’s  thrown in. It’s a such a fun story. 
Iris just needed a few days of quiet with her dog. Maybe some crafting, reading, and hot tubing too. It’s been a hard year and some time alone being spending Christmas with her brother and mother might be just want she needed even if it meant that her brother was right about it. What she didn’t expect was to walk into the cabin and see a very naked man in the bath tub. 
Kyler thought he was going to be alone nursing his injury and drinking his troubles away. Apparently not, now he was stuck with a princess and her little dog too. A princess who doesn’t want him there. Too bad a blizzard didn’t get that message…
You guys don’t want to miss this one! It’s so much fun, flirty, and and will get you in the holiday spirit. It’s a novella that packs a punch!

New Release & Review – One Dirty Night, Pepper Winters

October 26, 2023 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By



HIGH, HIGH spice. (We’re talking volcano heat). Standalone. Dirty. Kinky. BDSM. HEA. MFM one scene. MF romance after. Longing. Kink. Master/Sub. Punishments. Praise. Toys. Fall Hard. Dirty Men. Dirty Talk. Dirty Deeds. Forced proximity. Enemies to Lovers. Explosive Chemistry. Quiet on the Outside absolutely Depraved on the Inside. And rated F for Filthy, Filthy…


One Dirty Night by Pepper Winters is now live! 


“If you came here to get mauled, Ella, then…I’m very willing to bite.”

The night of my birthday looked as boring as the rest of my life. Sitting on my own, trying to avoid my insanely gorgeous but horribly mean flatmate, all while waiting for him to leave so I could have a party for one…if you know what I mean.

But that was before I almost crashed on the way home when a big top rolled into town. Before I locked eyes with the hottest guy I’d ever seen swinging a sledgehammer in the rain. Before I read the flyer promoting the newly erected circus. A circus that wasn’t the usual garish carnival…oh, no…this one was most definitely not for children.

Not unless you counted bondage, fantasies, and one dirty night full of heinously deviant fun.

Only problem was…my flatmate decided to get his freak on too. He saw me as I agreed to spend the night with the owner of said depraved circus…and he made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.



I get to be owned by two men, not just one.

I get to live out my wildest fantasies and teach Nicholas Davis a lesson for all those stony scowls and disdainful glances he’s given me.

He can have me for one night.

He can make me crawl, beg, and take me in any way he chooses.

But he has to share.

That is his penance.

And I mean to make him suffer…

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

One Dirty Night is Pepper Winters’s newest standalone and it is straight fire. If you follow my reviews, you know I don’t read blurbs. I knew it was about one night and that it was going to be filthy. That’s it, and holy hell, it’s was Filthy with a capital F. 
One the night was Ella’s birthday, her plan was to go home and have a quiet night. Just like every other night of the week. That was until she saw him. A shirtless man with a sledgehammer putting up a big top. Then she saw the flier. One night at the circus. Not just any circus but a circus full of toys, fantasies, promises, and bondage…
Ella expected all of that. What she didn’t expect was to see her geeky-hot roommate who avoided her at all costs. Except, when he sees her walking away with the owner and a Dom, they all make a deal. One night. They will give her everything she never knew she craved. Together. And she will submit to them. 
Now, this is a f*cking circus! Once I started, I didn’t want to put it down. Yes, it is hot, but it’s more than that. It’s a sexual awakening for Ella and Nicholas. It’s sexy, fun, and emotional. I love every emotional and filthy moment of it.

Release Blitz & Review – ISO: In Search Of, Lucy Lennox & Molly Maddox

October 24, 2023 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By

Title: ISO: In Search Of
Series: After Oscar #4
Authors: Lucy Lennox & Molly Maddox
Genre: MM Romance
Tropes: Fish Out of Water/Cowboy/Grumpy Sunshine
Release Date: October 24, 2023




How in the world does a grumpy rancher end up falling for a rich dilettante?


Richard Dunning has it all: private school education, an exquisite designer wardrobe, a last name that ensures he’s invited to all the best parties, and a skincare regimen that’s to die for.
The only thing he doesn’t have is… well, a job. Or a home. Or money in the bank. Not since his dad cut him off.
So when his best frenemy approaches him with a bet—spend a month working as a cowhand on some godforsaken Wyoming ranch in exchange for his dream job—he’s a little too proud and a lot too desperate to say no.
But from the moment Richard and his rhinestone cowboy hat show up at the Silver Fork Ranch, nothing is as expected.
Not the beautiful vistas, not the terrifying horses, not the friendly people, not the epic quantities of cow manure, and definitely not Boone Hammond, the rugged rancher whose eyes are a little too intense, whose expectations are a little too high, and whose kisses are… a lot too tempting.
But when his month on the ranch comes to a close, Richard must choose: return to the safe, luxurious life he thought he wanted… or risk everything for the love he’s been IN SEARCH OF all along.

Rugged cowboy and his sexy fashionista!

New Release & Review – I’m Your Guy, Sarina Bowen

October 10, 2023 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By

The furniture district is my personal hell. I don’t know my ass from an ottoman. But when a hot designer comes to my rescue, I realize my problems are bigger than the house I’m trying to furnish.
A scorching kiss over fabric samples makes me question all my choices. But is it too late to change my entire life to get more of them?

I need this gig, but my cocky new client leaves out a couple crucial details:
He doesn’t mention that he’s a famous hockey player. And he doesn’t own up to the way he’s always trying to undress me with his dark, broody eyes.
The man throws out more mixed signals than a broken traffic light. I’ve never been more sexually frustrated in my entire life. I need to back away before I do something stupid, like lose my heart.
Oops. Too late.

5 out of 5 stars

I’m Your Guy is the second book in the Hockey Guys series by Sarina Bowen. I was so happy when I found out we were getting another book in the series and Tommaso and Carter stole my heart! I had the pleasure of listening to the audiobook and Teddy Hamilton and Jacob Morgan (who are two of my favorite narrators and the first m/m duo I ever listened to) were freaking fantastic! Tommaso has an empty house that he needs to furnish and he hates shopping. When he runs into Carter, a designer, totally by accident, it seems like fate. He can hire Carter and not have to shop. Score! But the more time he spends with Carter, the more he likes him. And not just as a nice guy, he likes him likes him. But he’s not out. He can’t even think about what would happen to his career and his life. But the closer they get, the more Tommaso realizes he needs to live his life the way he wants. And he wants to be happy and be himself. He becomes friends with Newgate and sees how happy he is and he’s not pretending to be something he’s not. But can Tommaso make the leap? For himself? For Carter? Carter has never met anyone like Tommaso. But he’s a famous hockey player and he’s straight. Right? Not if that hot kiss is any indication. But he’s working for him and he can’t afford to lose his job. He just has to stop looking at his abs of glory and focus on his job. He loves the way Tommaso takes care of him, but he can’t fall for another guy who’s unavailable. But if Tommaso’s going to put it all on the line, Carter can too! Holy moly! I love them so much! They were so funny and sexy and fun together. I loved seeing some of the guys from the first book and of course Newgate and Gavin and am hoping there will be more in the series!




Release Blitz & Review – Watch and Learn, Rebel Shaw

October 10, 2023 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By


Title: Watch and Learn
Author: Rebel Shaw
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Tropes: Second Chance/Sports Romance
Release Date: October 10, 2023






All I wanted to do was be me, for one night. I didn’t want to be the number one quarterback in the league. I just wanted to be Nate. I couldn’t tell you exactly what made me stop at that dive bar on the outskirts of town, but it changed my life.
Our connection was instant and undeniable. Our night together was explosive, which led to another, and then another. No strings. Neither of us had time in our busy lives for more.
When tragedy strikes, we part ways, but those strings we swore were not there tethered me to her. An invisible line from my heart to hers. It doesn’t matter how much time has passed. I still want her.
After a long day at work, the last thing I should have done was stop at a seedy establishment at the edge of town, but something had me pulling my car into the lot and going inside. The place was empty, except one man. An impossibly gorgeous guy with sexy eyes as dark as the night.
I threw caution to the wind and invited him home. Our night together was magic, and when it came time to part ways, we both decided not to. No strings. Just great sex.
However, our time is cut short when he sustains an injury on the field and leaves, breaking my heart into a thousand pieces on his way out the door. What was supposed to be just for fun turned out to be anything but, and when he returns to town years later, I realize I’m in trouble. My heart still craves him.

Watch and Learn is Rebel Shaw’s newest standalone. I am soooo hoping that it turns into a series. There is one more player I would love to find love. 💋 

Nate and Oaklyn had no idea that when they both decided to stop at a dive bar on the outside of town that it would change both of their lives…

Nate just wanted one night to be himself. No VIP sections. No football groupies. No photographers. Just one night to just be. He didn’t expect when he sat down at the empty bar that the love of his life was about to walk in and fall… literally. The moment he saved her from hitting the floor, he wanted her. He was happy to just talk to her. But then, the unexpected happen… they have an explosive night. Then another and another. For not weeks but months…

Then boom! It was over. Their friends-with-benefits arrangement. His injury took him home. And years, later, he was back. Her body still crave his touch. Her heart still aches for him. He says he never forgot what they shared. That he still wants her and not just for sex. He wants forever but can she trust that he wont leave her again? 

Love!! I do love a good second chance romance and Nate being a hot football player was an added bonus. Oh, and Oaklyn is a badass doctor. #PowerCouple. I thought their story was fun, sweet, hot, and overall fantastic. 




Rebel Shaw is the alter ego of the romance writing duo Lacey Black and Kaylee Ryan.

Sandra's Review

Puck Yes is the second book in the My Hockey Romance series by Lauren Blakely. It can be read as standalone but I do recommend reading Double Pucked since it is hot AF. 
Ivy needed a wedding date. Stat. To her ex-boyfriend and recently ex-boss’s wedding. Crazy, right? What is even crazier is that her new neighbor and flirty stranger, Hayes, volunteers to be her plus-one. She knew the man was hot, what she didn’t know was that he was the new hotshot hockey player on the team she was the new mascot for. It wasn’t the only unexpected thing to happen on her first day…
Stefan, the team’s captain, hits on her. A man she has known for years. She has never had two men look at her the way they did. With want. Lust. Need. Adornment. She was in a sexy twilight zone and didn’t know what to do about it until one dare changes everything. She marries Hayes in Vegas and both men take the bride to bed. Together. 
This is where the fake relationship while really married comes in… they just need to get through two events. Easy. What’s not easy is not falling in love with her husband and secret boyfriend. 
Puck yes, this book is straight fire!! 🏒💋🏒 Ivy and her men are not only hot in the bedroom but so much fun out of it. Even if it has to be on the down-low. What would people think of the new mascot not only being married to the team’s new player but also being with it’s team captain? 
Lauren absolutely killed it with this throuple! It’s fun, sexy, swoony, sweet, naughty and emotional.

Puck Yes is the second book in the My Hockey Romance series by Lauren Blakely. I’m loving this series of sexy hockey players and the women they fall for. Puck Yes is Ivy’s story! We met and loved Ivy in Double Pucked (Ryker’s sister) and I was excited that we were getting her story. Ivy meets, Hayes, a sexy stranger at the perfect time. She needs a plus one to a wedding and he’s there for her. She never expects to see him again at work, but he’s the new hockey star on the team she works for. Then after a dare, she’s married to him! But that’s only the beginning. She also wants his teammate, Stefan. She never thought her wedding night would be with both Hayes and Stefan. Now she has a husband and a secret boyfriend. Temporarily. But what if it could be forever? Could they really make this throuple work? Hell yes they can! And it’s hot and sexy and sweet and fun! I loved the banter in and out of the bedroom and hope we see these characters again!

Audio: Teddy, Jacob and Samantha killed this one! They sounded so good together! These narrators and Lauren’s words are pure bliss for my ears!

When my ex trades me out for a better model—my boss—I don’t take getting screwed over lying down.


Instead, I get a glow up, not only landing a new job with the hockey team but also scoring the city’s hot new hockey player as my plus one to my ex’s wedding. Then, the sexy team captain starts flirting with me, too.


But one night after a win, I accidentally marry that intense new guy after the captain dares us to say I do. One dare leads to another, and I’m experiencing double the pleasure as I say puck yes to both players sharing me on my wedding night.


In the morning, when hubby and I are on our way to get an annulment, the team owner spots our rings and invites the new it couple to attend her upcoming charity golf tournament.


Looks like I have to fake it as Mrs. Hockey for the hockey season and the wedding season. There’s only one problem.


We’re not just a couple. Both guys want more of me.


And pretty soon I’ve got a bigger problem – I’m falling for my fake husband and my secret boyfriend at the same time.
