synopsis

Chelsea Craig’s life is perfect, until her husband David runs off with his paralegal. During the mandatory sixty-day waiting period before the divorce is finalized, Chelsea decides to transform herself into a woman David can’t resist. Revamping her life isn’t easy, though, and Chelsea lands in one embarrassing predicament after another. Luckily, Nick, a smoldering local cop, happily rushes to her rescue. Convinced that a fling with Nick couldn’t hurt, Chelsea embraces the sizzling chemistry they share. But when the separation period draws to a close, Chelsea begins to question whether she’s been working all this time to salvage a relationship with the wrong man.

exclusiveexcerpt

Nick was quiet during the drive, giving me more than enough time to panic. I wasn’t good with silence. I needed meaningless banter.

“That was pretty low, cutting me off at the bar.”

“A man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do.”

“I hate clichés.”

“Well, desperate times call for desperate measures,” he said, grinning.

“You better be nice or I’ll change my mind.”

He turned to me. “So you admit you were bluffing?”

“I admit nothing.”

He reached his hand out to my thigh then shifted it northward. My entire body tensed at the sensation of his fingers pressing against me through my panties.

“I like the boots,” he said calmly.

I would’ve responded, but I could barely breathe, let alone speak, with his hand resting there.

“And the skirt is hot, too, although I would’ve preferred it without the undergarments.”

He turned into my driveway, killed the engine, and opened my car door before I had even registered that his hand had left my body. I dawdled unlocking the front door, and then paused in the kitchen.

“Can I get you a drink?”

“No,” he said. And he leaned in and kissed me. The kiss began innocently, with a fair amount of space between our bodies, and with Nick’s hands resting politely on my hips. Within moments though, his tongue was in my mouth and his hands had shifted to my butt. I tried to focus on deciding once and for all if I could really go through with this, but instead all I could think about was his soft tongue, his perfect smell, and his firm ass. That’s when I realized I was groping him.

mythoughts

A quick, sexy, steamy and absolutely fun romance! 

4hearts2 (1)

I had so much fun reading Sixty Days for Love by Liza Malloy. It’s easy to read, amusing, and swoony.

After reading the first chapter and that adorably hilarious meet cute between Nick and Chelsea, I knew I would have a good time reading this book. It’s lighthearted, sweet, funny and cheesy at times, but absolutely so fun! The plot does have a few flaws and some scenes are a bit cringy (and not in a good way), but I thought the story overall is well-written. I got hooked right away and even though there are some slow parts, I was engrossed and entertained until the very end. I liked the characters, the romance is swoony, and enjoyed all the heartwarming and humorous moments. The ending did feel a bit rushed, but it still managed to melt my heart and leave a smile on my face.

Chelsea is a great heroine. She’s fun, likable, and an adorable mess. She somehow always ends up in hilarious mishaps that I thought was really amusing and cute. She’s also quite quirky, funny, nerdy, and just a really sweet person. I definitely rooted for her the entire time.

Nick is an amazing love interest. He’s charming, sexy, intriguing, and a bit mysterious. He’s totally swoon-worthy boyfriend material, but, I must admit… I wasn’t always 100% sure about Nick and kept going back and forth with how I felt about him. In the end, I realized that he’s obviously not perfect and has his own issues to deal with (like we all do).

I liked the romance and chemistry between Chelsea and Nick, but to be honest, I personally wasn’t into the “arrangement” and it bothered me a bit. There’s also this one scene that did not sit well with me, so I felt a little less charmed by Nick… at least for a little while. Having said that, Nick certainly and slowly won me over again. I liked how he’s protective, encouraging, and always there when Chelsea needs him. Deep down, he truly cares about her and just wants her to be happy. I also really enjoyed their bantering, flirting, conversations, and all their steamy intimate moments. I just really wanted Chelsea and Nick to figure out whatever is going on between them, admit how they really feel for each other and finally be together.

This book is a quick, fun, sexy and entertaining read perfect for a relaxing night in, lounging by the pool, or soaking the sun at the beach.

I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. All thoughts are my own.

Book Blitz – Falling for My Nemesis by Tia Souders

Falling For My Nemesis: A Sweet YA Romance
Tia Souders
(Sweet Water High, #6)
Publication date: June 11th 2019
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult

Spending time with my nemesis never felt so good.

Carson Brooks has been my enemy since the day he moved to town and tried to drown me in a rogue wave.

Not only are we enemies, but we’re not quiet about it either. We’re polar opposites. Where I’m a perfectionist and methodical in all things, he is carefree and the life of the party.

While Carson tries to trip me in the halls on a regular basis, I’m busy glaring holes through his disgustingly thick skull.

Oh, and did I mention I’m best friends with his little brother? Talk about inconvenient.

But it’s our senior year and my life is unraveling. My parents are at each other’s throats, I have yet to hear back about early admissions at the college of my choice, and I have no date to the Snowflake Ball. So, when Carson whacks me in the face with a basketball during gym class, I snap. I go for his throat–literally.

Now Sweet Water’s principal is giving us a choice: face suspension or find a way to work together on the holiday Angel Project.

Great. As if living in a warzone weren’t enough, now I have to spend time with the enemy.

But as tensions rise and we begin spending time together, I realize there’s more to Carson Brooks than his cocky exterior. Maybe I like him more than I thought. Maybe a little too much.

A burst of laughter from center-court stole my attention. I glanced over to see Carson cackling with Olivia, a basketball casually hooked under his arm, looking as carefree as ever.

I rolled my eyes and turned back to Harper. Typical. Of course he would be fawning all over someone like her. He was probably going to the dance with either her or Tasha, one of Sweet Water’s MG’s. They might be popular and beautiful, but they earned their nickname as the school’s Mean Girls for a reason. I couldn’t imagine if I showed up dateless. No doubt Carson would relish the opportunity to rub my solo-status in my face.

I could picture it now, those crystal blue eyes glittering menacingly under the disco ball in the gym, his hair dark and rumpled. Couldn’t get a date, Shorty? he’d say, and then I’d punch him.

Ugh. Why was I even thinking about him?

I crossed my arms over my chest and mustered a smile. “No worries. I’m sure I’ll—”

My words cut off at the sound of someone yelling, “Heads up!”

But it was too late. I wasn’t fast enough. I was too wrapped up in my own personal crisis to react before the basketball smashed into my face—wham!

I doubled over, my hands flying to where the ball had torpedoed into my eye socket. The pain was sharp—blinding. It took my breath away. Several seconds ticked by before I managed to straighten and inhale, blinking a few times, eyes watering as I searched my surroundings with my good eye like a pirate.

My gaze narrowed, knife-sharp, zeroing in on my assailant. None other than Carson Brooks stood right in my line of vision, a smirk plastered across his perfectly symmetrical pretty-boy face.

I dropped my hand from my throbbing eye and Harper gasped beside me, covering her mouth, mumbling a muffled, “Oh my gosh.”

I gave her a cursory glance—she wasn’t helping—before I returned my focus back to the court where Carson began to laugh. Not a chuckle, but a bent over at the waist, full on belly roll.

And I snapped.

My hands balled at my side, while I stormed the eight feet separating us to his spot on the court, my eyes blazing, fists at the ready. I was a woman possessed as I closed the gap. All of my problems culminated in the single moment he lobbed the basketball into my face, and I was sure it was him. I had never been more certain of anything in my life. It was always him prodding me, poking me, pricking his needle-sharp jabs under my skin.

My face throbbed where he struck me with the ball, and as I neared, he laughed even harder. It took him but a minute to absorb the fury oozing from my pores, and his laughter faded, morphing into his signature smirk.

I didn’t think. I could only react, and before I knew what I was doing, before common sense could prevail, my slender fingers wrapped around his puny neck.
