With her signature charm and sense of humor, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Helena Hunting creates a novel about love, family, and second chances in Make a Wish…
Ever have a defining life moment you wish you could do over? Harley Spark has one. The time she almost kissed the widowed father of the toddler she nannied for. It was so bad they moved across the state and she never saw them again.
Fast forward seven years and she’s totally over it. At least she thinks she is. Until Gavin Rhodes and his adorable now nine-year-old daughter, Peyton, reappear at a princess-themed birthday party hosted by Spark House, Harley’s family’s event hotel. Despite trying to avoid the awkwardness of the situation, she can’t help but notice how unbearably sexy he looks in a tutu. Add to that a spontaneous hives breakout, and it’s clear she’s not even remotely over the mortification of her egregious error all those years ago.
Except Gavin seems oblivious to her inner turmoil. So much so that he suggests they get together for lunch. For Peyton’s sake, of course. It’s the perfect opportunity to heal old wounds. Or it could just reopen them. This is one of those times Harley wishes she could see the future…

Make A Wish is the third and final book in the Spark House series by Helena Hunting and it’s my favorite of the series! It’s a single dad, second chance romance full of fun, sorrow, joy, hope, lust, love, friendship and family. Seven years ago Harley was the nanny for Peyton, a toddler who lost her mom. She almost made the mistake of almost kissing Gavin, but nothing happened. Then they moved away. Now they are back and when they run into each other Gavin wants to have lunch and catch up. Harley is thrilled to spend more time with Peyton. She’s not sure what to make of the connection she and Gavin seem to have. He seems to be interested in her, but that can’t be right? Can it? Gavin never forgot about Harley, but she was barely twenty years old back then. Now she’s all woman and he can’t deny how he feels about her. But there’s Peyton to consider. The more time they spend together the more time he wants with Harley. With Peyton and all to himself. Is he ready to move on? Put the past behind him and have a future with Harley? This is such a great, emotional story! So much loss but so much hope. I thought Gavin and Harley handled things like adults. And Peyton is freaking adorable! I love her honesty and openness. I loved how Gavin talked to his best friend and got advice. How Harley and her sisters are a team. And I loved how Harley stood up for herself. She finally realized what she wanted and she asked for it. It was great to see Avery, London and their men again. I’m sad the series is over, but it ended perfectly!
Who says you can’t find true love with a total stranger?
Kayley, that’s who. After our fantastic night together turns into a morning meeting spent vying for the same piece of property, we’re now more enemies than lovers.
While the lawyers sort it out, I have a plan–convince her to be my Valentine anyway because I’ve got it bad for this smart and sexy woman. Real bad.
But not bad enough to back away from the land I need to build a legacy in the mountains, no matter how much I enjoy spending time in Kayley’s… hot tub.
Since she’s not backing down either, this relationship is probably doomed.
Unless this bossy billionaire can learn to compromise when faced with the prospect of a lifetime of lonely Valentine’s Days…and nights.
The Bossy Billionaire’s Last Valentine is the third and final novella in The Billionaires of Jingle Bell Junction by Lili Valente and Erin McCarthy. I really enjoyed this series of these brothers and their women. This is a fast paced novella full of fun and sexiness. Bran and Kay meet and have one amazing night together. They both want to see each other again, but something big gets in the way. Now they don’t know what to do, but they can’t seem to stay away from each other. Will one of them give up their dream to have love? I loved Bran and Kay! They were fun, entertaining and made me laugh!
An unexpected inheritance might be the gift of a lifetime.
The Back Up Plan, an all-new second chance standalone romance in the heartwarming Sunrise Cove series from New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis is now available!
New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis returns to Sunrise Cove with a heartwarming tale of three people who are bought together when they’re bequeathed an old Wild West inn that has the potential to pull their lives apart, but instead turns into the gift of a lifetime.
When Alice receives a call about an unexpected windfall, she’s stunned to learn the gift is a falling-apart-at-the-seams old Wild West B&B she once considered home—and she’s inherited it along with two strangers. Except they weren’t always strangers. Once upon a time, they were friends. One is her ex-BFF Lauren. The other is Knox, the only guy to ever break her heart, all while never even knowing she existed.
It turns out their lives are unknowingly entangled because they once separately helped the same woman without expecting anything in return. Years later, Alice, Lauren, and Knox are broken in their own way, with their own history—and secrets— causing them to start out on the wrong foot with each other. But according to the will, they must renovate and be partners in the inn for one year or else lose their inheritance.
Stuck together, they make a list of rules to keep the peace—rules that end up doing the opposite, but by some miracle they find what they didn’t even know they were looking for—acceptance, true friendship, and in a case (or two!), true love.
Fall in love today!

About the Book
Etienne LaFayette hits the ground running the moment he breathes free air after being paroled from a maximum-security prison in Texas.
He claws his life back from his brother-in-law who’d taken over his business during the years he’d spent as an inmate at Huntsville Penitentiary. Though it is hard, he puts his life back together in Accident, Florida.
There, he hires new employees, joins a motorcycle club, and becomes wildly successful overnight.
Seems like the perfect life, right?
Because one of his first clients is a beautiful, curly-haired woman that reels him in from the moment he first lays eyes on her. Only, before he can work his charm, she forms an opinion of him based solely on the person that he chose to work at his side, day in and day out. That opinion? Utter disgust.
Matilda Deveraux has been dealt blow after blow her entire life.
First with the death of her mom. Then living with a stepfamily that despises her.
Her entire life she’s been known as different. The “weird girl that creeps everyone out.”
It’s not her fault that she’s different, yet everyone, including Etienne’s assistant, treats her like she’s a menace to society.
Like she would be better off in a loony bin than gracing the streets of Accident, Florida.
After years of abuse from everyone around her, the last thing she needs is to be around a man that would have that horrible woman around him twenty-four seven.
As a result, she forms an opinion—something that people do to her all the time—and treats him accordingly.
Only, it turns out that Etienne isn’t who she thought he was.
He’s much, much worse. But only in the best of ways.
Cute but Psycho is the third book in the Gator Bait MC series by Lani Lynn Vale. We met Etienne and Matilda in Good Trouble and their story is an enemies-to-lovers romance! Etienne is friends with Bain and just out of jail. When he meets Matilda there’s something about her that he really likes. But she seems to hate him. He doesn’t know why, but he’s building her new clinic so he’s going to see her a lot so he has to get her to like him. Matilda has a crappy family. No one really loved her and she just wants to feel loved and safe. She also has sensory issues and people are jerks to her! She’s smart, pretty and speaks her mind. Once she and Etienne clear the air, she likes him again. They have a lot in common and he loves the things about her that make her unique. He knows just how to talk to her and give her what she needs. Their story was funny, sexy and emotional. It’s not my favorite of the series, I just couldn’t connect with these characters like I usually do. But I’m looking forward to more from the series!
Secrets unearthed, promises made, and brotherhood bonds broken …
Less than three weeks ago, my life flipped on its axis. After infiltrating a world designed for men, my role in the brotherhood became more than I ever dared it could be. I had a mission: find out what happened to my best friend and destroy everyone who was involved with his disappearance.
Falling for them was never the plan.
But after my worst nightmare became my reality, and the past I thought I’d escaped came knocking at our door, the feelings we shared became something far beyond anything I could have anticipated. Before coming to Hawthorne Hall, I never dreamed I’d find anyone who would care for me. But against all odds, I have three.
These brothers are determined to help me unravel the tangled web of deceit and lies that has been spun around this house. As my final test approaches, our progress is stalled at every turn. The justice I seek has never seemed so far out of reach.
The truth has two faces. One, we never saw coming.

I think I’m falling for my bodyguard co-worker. Now I need protection… from myself.
As a former SEAL intelligence officer, I’m supposed to be smart. Unfortunately, those smarts don’t apply to love. I did a nice thing and took my heartbroken fellow bodyguard out for a Valentine’s dinner. Just us bros. But my plan worked a little too well, and a night that ended with a scorching kiss has turned into the most awkward morning at the office ever. Now we’re working together as bodyguards on a remote mountain movie shoot. And we’re roommates.
I’ve never been attracted to a guy before, but something about Avery calls to every protective instinct I have. We’re not dating, but every night alone together, I fall a little deeper. It’s also Avery’s first time with a guy too, and while we’re both enjoying all sorts of new things together, I worry my heart will be broken when we return to civilization.
No matter how badly this may end, I can’t seem to stop wanting Avery. All of him. I want to see who he’ll become if he ever manages to get out of his own way. I want to be his biggest cheerleader, best friend, and the guy he comes home to. But going from secret hookup to forever after is a big ask. Are we both brave enough to take the leap?

Rocky Start is the fourth book in the A-List Security series by Annabeth Albert. I really loved this series and Avery and Malik’s story was a great addition. This is a double awakening and I loved it! Malik is big, strong, ex naval intelligence officer for special forces and Avery is and ex SEAL. They work at A-List Security together and on Valentine’s Day find themselves dateless so they go on a platonic date. The night takes a turn toward the physical in which they both enjoy, but in contrast to Malik’s easy going attitude about doing what you enjoy, Avery freaks out. When they have to spend weeks together on a movie in Colorado sharing a room, they both discover they might not be as straight as they thought. Avery really struggles with his sexuality. He’s lived his life in the shadow of a famous football dad and he was a SEAL. He’s supposed to be manly and tough. But Malik shows him how to stop hating who he is and embrace who he wants to be. Avery fights it every step of the way, but when he realizes he’s happier than he has ever been because of Malik, he starts to think maybe he can wear the silk and love his blond curls. Admit that he’s not straight. I loved these two together. Malik is so caring and patient and level-headed and suffers from PTSD and therapy has taught him a lot. Avery is a hot mess for a while. He lost an arm and has no idea who he is or what he wants to do with his life. Once he realizes he can be anything he wants as long as Malik is with him, it’s glorious to watch him. He’s so sexy and sweet. I thought the writing was fantastic and I laughed and cried! Their kink was delicious and I just loved how supportive they were of each other. I loved so many of the secondary characters and loved seeing some old friends. I’m sad the series is over but I’m looking forward to what Annabeth has next for us!

Keep reading for a look inside Dirty Crazy Bad Book 2!ASHLEY Jase stalls on the step above me as Mom and Ares continue to the upper level where Ares’s, Chad’s, and my bedrooms are. “What’s wrong?” he asks, turning to face me. “You need to sleep down here,” I say, leaning against the banisters as I try not to let the crestfallen look on his face get to me. “I don’t expect anything, Ash, but I want to stay with you. To make sure you’re okay.” “I’ll be fine. I have already taken pain meds, and I’ll just set my alarm to wake me every few hours.” He folds his arms across his broad chest as his emerald eyes peer into mine. “I know I hurt you and I need to make it up to you. I know it’s not as easy as me saying I’m sorry or that I was trying to protect you. But please don’t shut me out. You are injured, and someone should stay with you.” “I’ll stay with her.” Ares’s gruff voice echoes from above. I look up, spotting him hanging back on the top step. I expect Jase to argue. There is little love lost between those two. But he surprises me. He fixes his gaze on Ares. “Make sure you wake her every four hours. And come get me if there are any issues during the night.” Ares equally surprises me when he nods agreeably. Jase pulls me into a tender hug. Pressing his warm lips to my ear, he whispers, “I love you, Temptress. Whatever you need, I will give you.” Tears stab my eyes at his words. I know what this must be costing him. “I love you too,” I whisper, stretching up to kiss his cheek. “But that doesn’t magically solve all our issues.” “I know.” The look of adoration on his face as he tucks stray strands of pink hair behind my ears is almost enough to change my mind. “We need to talk about a lot of things.” I bob my head as I extract myself from his embrace and move around him. “Yeah, we do. Night, Jase. Sleep well.” “Night, baby.”

Moving On is a standalone MM romance from Felice Stevens. I’m a big fan of Felice’s and I try to grab her books as often as possible. This is Tristan and Sean’s story. (Tristan is from the Man Up series and I might have to go back and read that!) Sean is down on his luck, lost his apartment and his job and is crashing at his sister’s apartment that she typically rents out. He was a singing waiter and he’s just looking for any job serving at this point. Tristan is an ex NYPD detective back in NY after a few years of being in London. Sean’s brother-in-law gives him the apartment to use until he can find one of his own. Now Tristan, who’s grumpy and closed off is sharing a one bedroom apartment with Sean, the fun-loving singing performer. Tristan is carrying guilt over the loss of his partner and doesn’t even want to talk about himself. But he’s instantly attracted to Sean and that’s going to be a problem. Sean can’t believe he has to share space with the tall, gorgeous man who won’t even talk. But he’s persistent and is going to get Tristan to talk to him. It takes time, but they finally get into a routine of eating together (Tristan and his healthy green juice and Sean’s junk food). Then one drunken night and they end up in bed together. Tristan can’t keep denying he wants Sean. Somehow Sean got past some of his walls and he really wants to let him in. Once he decides he wants Sean it is on! And I loved every minute of it. Sean is so open and fresh and talented. He’s been on his own his entire life and he has a past that would make anyone cry (me included). Tristan was similarly abandoned as a child, hid his sexuality and suffered a major loss on the job. Together, they fill in all the broken pieces and just make sense. Sean makes Tristan smile and laugh. Tristan makes Sean want to want more for himself. It’s a funny, sexy, emotional story that had be laughing and wanting to give them both hugs!
“… the chemistry between these two is crazy! They try their best to ignore it but as they slowly grow closer, the walls start to come down. This was a sexy, sweet, wonderful book!” ~ Carol’s Crazy Bookish World

The RSVP is Lauren Blakely’s newest romance! It’s a sexy age-gap, forbidden romance between Harlow and her dad’s business partner Bridger. I love a good age gap story and add in the forbidden aspect and I was sucked in from the very beginning. Harlow has had a crush on her dad’s business partner for a while. But now she’s twenty-one and she’s going to go after what she wants. Bridger never saw Harlow as more than his business partner’s daughter until one day, there is it. That spark. That connection. Oh hell. He can’t have thoughts about Harlow. Ever. She’s too young. He can’t risk his business. But when they start working together and he sees how smart, capable and sexy she is, he can’t stay away. Will he risk his business for a woman? For love? Oh man! This story is so sexy and spicy! I loved how Harlow just went after Bridger. Seduced him and proved she was more than he though she was. Bridger is so broody and serious and I loved watching him open up to Harlow. Show her the man he really is. Together they are on fire! I’m loving the series so far and looking forward to more!
