THE HERO IN HER STORY by Kelsey Kingsley is LIVE!!! Don’t miss this enemies-to-lovers, secret relationship romance!!! 

One-click today!

What to expect: 

✔️Best friend’s brother

✔️Secret relationship

✔️Enemies to lovers

✔️Single dad

✔️All the laughs

✔️Tons of feels


Tarryn King has always been a thorn in Connor Jacobs’ side. Ever since the moment his disabled little sister became best friends with the snooty brat, Connor was left with no other purpose than to be the grumpy big brother, wishing for their falling out.

And he learned to live with that—until the day he gave her the shirt off his back … and discovered it’s possible to be jealous of an inanimate object.

For two decades, that embedded thorn has been the object of his desires. But that’s a secret he’ll never tell. She’ll always see him as her BFF’s mean older brother.

Besides, she isn’t just his sister’s best friend anymore. She’s THE Tarryn King. And what could a famous actress who has everything see in him? A single dad who collects garbage for a living.

But when her very attractive—and very available—costar enters the picture, Connor knows he has to make his move … or live with regret forever.



When I read The Girl in the Front Row, I really, really hoped that Kelsey Kingsley would write Tarryn and Connor’s story. Sibling’s best friend stories are one of my favorites, and everything about Tarryn and Connor’s story checked off all the boxes for me.

This book starts off as enemies-to-lovers, but what is really simmering underneath is hate fueled by years of unrequited love. It’s obvious to Connor’s teen daughter, Sammy, that they are head over heels for one another way before it’s obvious to Connor and Tarryn.

The Hero in Her Story is a beautiful slow burn, friends-to-lovers, celebrity/average Joe romance. KK really took the time to develop the friendship between Connor and Tarryn as they shifted from antagonizing one another to becoming so much more.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: Six Summers to Fall by C.W. Farnsworth


SIX SUMMERS TO FALL  by C.W. Farnsworth is LIVE!!! Don’t miss this emotional reverse grumpy/sunshine, fake dating romance!!! 



Six summers. Six chances. One week spent pretending.

Ever since her younger sister’s engagement was announced, Harper Williams has been dreading the wedding. What should be a joyous, sun-drenched affair is sure to be filled with plenty of awkward moments, thanks to Harper’s strained relationship with her only sibling. Awkwardness enhanced by the wedding’s location—a lake in Maine swimming with painful memories of their late father.

Running into Drew Halifax—her childhood crush who grew up to be the golden boy of hockey—is a surprise. Not nearly as shocking as his offer to be her plus-one is, though.

She expects him to back out. He shows up. She’s looking for a distraction from the past. He’s killing time until his season starts and he can chase the championship. She’s guarded yet outgoing. He’s easygoing yet focused.

They hardly know each other. Until one week of sharing secrets, pretending to be in love, and sleeping in the same bed changes everything. Feelings that were supposed to be fake start to feel very real.

Problem is, neither of them are looking for a relationship. At most, they’re meant to be a summer fling. Definitely not a happy ever after.

But when it comes to falling? You have no control. Once you start, it’s impossible to stop. And sometimes…it takes six summers.



Drew and Harper knew each other growing up, and unbeknownst to each other, were crushing on one another hard back. The summer of her sister’s wedding, they embark on a no-strings fake relationship… but of course, feelings get involved and two people who didn’t want a commitment find themselves in a very real relationship and they aren’t sure what to do about it.

This book was cute, and a quick read. But I wish there was more backstory, especially considering the title. It took six summers for Drew and Harper to fall in love, but we barely got to see their relationship evolve over those years. I felt a bit let down by that because I thought the concept was great when I first read the title. I think I would have been shipping Harper and Drew more had I seen that progress of their relationship rather than the rush of that last summer.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: The Wrong Pitch by Brittany Taylor

The Wrong Pitch by Brittany Taylor is now live!


I couldn’t possibly have been more wrong the night I’d tackled Hunter Moore to the ground in the middle of the night.

To be fair, the street was pitch-black, the wheel to my suitcase had popped off, and I found myself face to face with a stranger charging at me.

My instincts had kicked in, and instead, I’d landed him straight on his back with my knee pressed to his chest. Turns out, the stranger I’d tackled to the ground was my brother’s roommate… which meant he was also mine.

With my dreams coming to a screeching halt, I was left with no other choice than to move in with my brother and his roommates.

Hunter Moore was star pitcher for the Northeast Rebels. Although I’d found his incessant talk of baseball obnoxious, I couldn’t help but relate to how deep his passion ran. Even if our dreams were completely different.

With a shared bathroom and a single wall between our bedrooms, we couldn’t resist pushing the boundaries.

Potent green eyes.
Perfectly sculpted muscle.
I was inevitably drawn in.

But the closer we became, the more I learned just how dedicated Hunter was to his dream, no matter the cost.
Only I was unaware, he’d already traded mine for his.

The Wrong Pitch is a spicy roommates, enemies to lovers college sports romance. It is a complete standalone.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

Well, the first meeting between Hunter and Ophelia is definitely one to remember — she thinks he’s about to attack her on the street in the middle of the night and clocks him.

The chemistry between the characters grows from there, and I enjoyed this brother’s best friend story very much. Hunter and Ophelia are both very focused on their careers. He is finally free from his family business and can focus on playing baseball after college; she is trying to pick up her life again after losing her job with a fashion house and gets a second chance by designing clothes for a small boutique. Hunter and Ophelia start out as friends and then become more, supporting each other along the way as they fall in love. But when Ophelia finds out that Hunter being able to live out his dream came at the expense of hers, will she be able to forgive him?

While I thought that Ophelia drew a hard line with Hunter during The Conflict over something that wasn’t totally his fault, I was glad that it was resolved rather quickly, and these two got a HEA after all.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: Flirting With Forever by Claire Kingsley

Flirting with Forever, the final book in the Dirty Martini Running Club series by CLAIRE KINGSLEY is LIVE!

Buy or borrow with Kindle Unlimited here ➪

Listen with Audible here ➪

He’ll break all her rules

Nora Lakes is sophisticated, successful, and happily single. Career problems aside, her life is fine the way it is, thank you very much. Sure, her best friends are all moving into a new season of life—full of husbands and babies and white picket fences. But that’s not what Nora wants.

Neither is the gruff, tattooed guy next door.

Tattoo artist Dex St. James has enough trouble on his hands without the distractingly beautiful woman next door. Being a single dad to a teenage girl is no joke. The last thing he needs is a flirtatious new neighbor who makes his blood run hot.

He’ll just avoid her. She’s not his type anyway.

But Nora and Dex can’t seem to stay out of each other’s way. Between a pesky nocturnal visitor, Nora’s blossoming friendship with Dex’s daughter, and their undeniable chemistry, that up-against-the-wall, brain-melting kiss was probably inevitable.

Nora has rules when it comes to men, and she has her reasons. Dex threatens to break every last one of them. She doesn’t want forever. He won’t settle for anything less. But when these two collide, the result is fire.

And maybe even forever.

Author’s Note: opposites attract in this fun, swoony, single-dad romcom. A smart, sassy woman meets a rough-around-the-edges tattoo artist with a heart of gold. Daddy/daughter moments, all the banter, neighborly shenanigans, a meddling family, badass lady friendships, and a hero who’s determined to fight the heat between them—until he falls first.

Flirting with Forever can be read as a stand-alone.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Claire Kingsley wraps up the Dirty Martini Running Club with Nora’s story, and it was well worth the wait!

Dex is a single dad with a surly tween who doesn’t have much free time between raising his daughter, Riley, and running his tattoo shop. But the broody hulk of a man may be just what sex columnist Nora needs in her life, now that she’s living in suburbia and her besties have all married off. Since neither one of them are interested in a committed relationship, a no-strings fling lets them both scratch those sexy itches. Naturally, Nora and Dex fall into a relationship before either of them realizes it. And suddenly, the woman who didn’t want a commitment and the man with zero free time find themselves flirting with the idea of spending forever with the other.

Dex and Nora’s relationship was certainly HOT (especially thanks to awesome narrators Stephen Dexter and Vanessa Edwin). Who knew that chaperoning a middle school dance was such great foreplay??? However, I also really loved the friendship that developed between Dex’s daughter, Riley, and Nora. It felt genuine and stood on its own so that Riley was a full character herself and not just a prop to make Dex the sexy single dad next door.

Some of my favorite highlights: The bounce house at Dex’s family BBQ was hilarious… the friendship between Nora/Everly/Hazel/Sophie is wonderful and the husband gang makes me smile every time they pop up… Riley and Nora’s friendship was adorable and so true and honest. It made me happy to see that Riley had Nora step up for her in ways that her mom never did!

I always want to smack whichever character storms off during a miscommunication without letting the other one explain… but the grovel/reunion was a wonderful, swoon-worthy payoff!

Well done, Claire! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: Stay Together by Kaylee Ryan

Stay Together by Kaylee Ryan is now live!



From the moment I see her, I’m hooked. There’s just something about Crosby that has me eager to know her. One thing’s for sure, I can’t stay away from the new kindergarten teacher with the kind smile and secrets in her brown eyes.

There’s no hiding in a small town, and she’s suddenly everywhere. My family loves her, my niece won’t stop talking about her, and I…well, I just want to make her mine.

Crosby is everything I didn’t know I was doing looking for, but the wall she keeps up makes it impossible to love her the way I want to. I have to figure out how to tear it down, and fast— because she’s not so sure she’s sticking around, and I’m not prepared to let her walk away from Willow River… or me.


Another new town, another new school. But this time I’m not the struggling new kid; I’m the teacher. It’s hard to let go of my past, when it refuses to let go of me. I live in a constant state of unease, never knowing what the future holds. Especially when it comes to love.

Rushton isn’t like other guys. He’s open and honest. What you see is what you get. He’s made his intentions very clear. But I’m afraid getting involved only spells heartbreak for both of us. If growing up in foster care taught me anything, it’s not to get too close and definitely don’t get comfortable.

So, I learned to be good at goodbye. But for the first time in my life, I’ve found a place I want to put down roots. Rushton, his family, Willow River, my students—they all make me wish for once that I could stay. That we could… stay together.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Stay Together is another great story in the Kincaid Brothers series! I fell hard and fast for Rushton, and how patient and kind he was with Crosby. I loved the meet-cute between these two in the hardware store, and then we later discover that Crosby is little Blakely Kincaid’s kindergarten teacher.

Crosby has had a tough life, so she arrives in town focused on securing a contract with the school district to meticulously plan her future. Dating anyone is not a part of her plan — neither is falling for Rush. At first, the chase is part of what Rush is attracted to, but the more he gets to know Crosby, the more he realizes he likes her. She’s been beaten down by life and is fiercely independent because she’s had to be, but Rush sees how loving and generous Crosby can be and is determined to be the one to break down her walls.

Despite Crosby’s best efforts to keep Rush at arm’s length, he keeps showing up time and time again to show her just how important she is, just how valued she is… and just how loved she is. I loved watching these two characters fall in love!

Sunny Shelly’s Review: One Look by Lena Hendrix

One Look by Lena Hendrix is now live!

I’m a full time single dad. A former NFL player turned coach, tasked with turning around a college team full of kids who either don’t take it seriously or are determined to get injured. I will absolutely not be falling for my new neighbor, despite the number of times my meddling brothers try to set us up.

Lark Butler is pure chaos wrapped in gorgeous, infuriating sunshine. She showed up out of nowhere—getting paid to cry at a funeral, no less. Who does that? But somewhere between offering her condolences and crawling out of a literal grave site, we’ve found ourselves tangled in the drama of Outtatowner, Michigan-my coastal hometown with a decades-old feud and two aunties determined to end it.

I’m finally putting down roots so my daughter has a normal life and I need to forget about Lark. Forget the way it felt the night we kissed or what it’s like to finally take something just for me. But when those sparks ignited, it was more intense than either of us bargained for.

Trouble is, I can’t trust her, and she never stays.

She’s burning my carefully laid plans to the ground and all it took was one look.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

One Look was a charming new small-town series starter from Lena Hendrix! I was hooked on Wyatt and Lark’s connection from the moment they met after she’d fallen in a grave. HILARIOUS! The connection between these two characters was lovely, and this book had all the small-town feels that I have come to expect (and love!) from Lena. This story is ripe with a sweet and sexy romance, family drama, and meddling townsfolk. And you have to love the name of Outtatowner!

College football coach Wyatt had only planned to hop in and out for a family friend’s funeral, but being back in town for just one night made him realize how much he and his young daughter, Penny, were missing out on by being away from his family. Lark, meanwhile, was only in town for an acting gig (as a paid mourner — hilarious!) but felt a connection to Outtatowner and decided to stick around for a bit. Eventually, Lark begins working as Wyatt’s assistant/nanny to help him organize his life, watch Penny, and mind the three college athletes in his care for the summer. Their connection slowly progressed in this slow-burn romance and built up to an explosion. Boy, is Wyatt a dirty talker!

As much as I adored Wyatt and Lark, I loved the setup for the other brothers and sister Kate and can’t wait to see what comes next in this series!

From USA Today and Amazon Charts bestselling author Meghan Quinn, comes a new fake dating, standalone sports romance featuring the hockey men you can’t get enough of and love. This steamy, age-gap romantic comedy will bring all the laughs while making your cheeks blush at the same time.

Running into your ex is never ideal.
Running into your ex who is now dating your nemesis is a literal nightmare.

That’s how I found myself in a sheer panic, reaching for the closest guy at the bar and kissing him. And to my delight he was easily the most attractive man I’ve ever seen.

The only problem is, when I tried to walk away after thanking him for his help, he stopped me with three life-changing words . . .“You owe me.”

That’s how I found myself, a college girl, in a fake relationship with a professional hockey player ten years older than me.

At first it was easy.
He helped me with my internship.
I helped keep his ex away from him.
We were becoming fast friends.

It wasn’t until he started staying the night at my dorm did the rules of our arrangement become complicated.

Now my feelings are involved and even though I kissed the right man at the right time, I’m worried he’s just waiting for the clock to run out.



Jason Clarke and Stella Hunter are narrating in duet this sexy, sports romance! One-click your copy of RIGHT MAN, RIGHT TIME on Audible today!

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Donkey Pervert Stars

Oh, Meghan Quinn does it again! I seriously don’t know how she comes up with the stuff in her books, but each one is funnier than the one before it.

Return to the Vancouver Agitators series with this hilarious age gap, fake relationship romance between Silas Taters and college student Ollie, who has zero clue who he is when she accosts him at a bar to pretend to be her boyfriend to save face in front of her ex, who is now dating her work nemesis. But before we even get to that scrumptious meet-cute, prepare to have your heart broken wide open when Silas gets his heart broken in the prologue. It’s no wonder the guy keeps everyone at an arm’s length. But after Silas pretends to be Ollie’s boyfriend, he thinks that having her as his fake girlfriend may be just what he needs now that his ex is working for the Agitators organization.

An awesome friendship forms between Ollie and Silas as they get to know one another, with hilarious scenes involving chicken tenders, donkeys, and the zoo. The sexual chemistry between them is undeniable and the more they try to fight it, the more they find it nearly impossible to stay away from each other. The slow burn between Silas and Ollie is well worth the wait, and it is explosive when they finally give in. I listened to this story on audio, and I may or may not have done a second listen to Chapter 17 as a read-along with the e-book because Joe Arden is just that dang sexy!

Then there is the conflict between Ollie and Silas, and the miscommunication was heartbreaking because the issue at hand played on all of his fears and insecurities, and obliterated her life at the same time. I was in tears reading those few chapters!

I loved how Joe Arden and Stella Hunter voiced Silas and Ollie, and their duet narration just made it that much more enjoyable. There are also some cameo appearances by JP Cane and Ryot Bisley, tying this book to that world.

I loved Silas and Ollie’s story, and will be keeping it on my re-read list! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: End of Story by Kylie Scott

“End of Story” by Kylie Scott is available everywhere now! Grab your copy:

When Susie Bowen inherits a charming fixer-upper, she’s excited to start living her best HGTV-life. But when she opens the door to find that her contractor is none other than her ex’s best friend Lars—the same man who witnessed her humiliating public break-up six months ago—she isn’t exactly eager to have him around. The sooner this renovation is done, the sooner Susie can get back to embracing her single life.

Things go from awkward to unbelievable when Lars knocks down a wall and discovers a divorce certificate dated ten years in the future…with both their names on it. It couldn’t possibly be real, could it? As Susie and Lars work to unravel the document’s origins, the impossibility of a spark between them suddenly doesn’t seem so far-fetched. But would a relationship between them be doomed before it’s even begun?

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

End of Story is a charming enemies-to-lovers romance with a mystical, paranormal twist. The last person Susie wants to work with to restore her aunt’s crumbling home is Lars — the best friend of her ex, who had cheated on her. Things get even more awkward between Lars and Susie when they find an old divorce decree hidden in a wall of the house — THEIR divorce decree, dated in the future! As Lars and Susie try to figure out the mystery of their marriage and divorce, they discover that they are wildly attracted to one another… and Lars turns out to be exactly what Susie needs in her life.

This story is relatively short, and easy to read. The mystical aspect of it was interesting, a nice twist to the standard enemies-to-lovers fare. Once these two got past their bickering, Lars and Susie were really well-matched. You definitely need to suspend belief a bit with End of Story, but it’s a great — if unconventional! — journey that is sweet, sexy, and swoony. Narrator Andi Arndt did a great job in telling Susie’s story!

Sunny Shelly’s Review: The Least Amount of Awful by Jennifer Millikin

He’s a single-dad, and her employee. Falling for him is a terrible idea. 

The Least Amount Of Awful by Jennifer Millikin is now live! 

Colbie Jones has worked hard to design a pain-free life. So when she catches her boyfriend cheating, it doesn’t hurt that much. But when Colbie receives a call that her estranged father, Emmett, has been badly injured, she realizes it’s time to pack her bags and finally face him—and that’s going to hurt. 

Colbie’s arrival sends shock waves through the small town, but it affects Jake Whittier most of all. Single-dad and foreman of Jones Construction, Jake sees Emmett as the father he no longer has, and that makes him an opponent of all things Colbie Jones.

Jake’s obvious animosity doesn’t bother Colbie, because she’s leaving in three days, tops. But then her dad asks her to stay and take over his business while he recovers, and Colbie hears herself agreeing before she has fully considered the proposal. Never mind that she has no idea how to build a house. 

Jake will just have to deal with having her around. 
But the more time Colbie spends with Jake, the more she sees why the rest of the town likes him. And once Colbie meets Jake’s son, it’s all downhill from there.  

Colbie thought the most challenging part of this arrangement would be having to work with Jake. 

But falling for him? 

That would be awful.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Oh, how I enjoyed The Least Amount Of Awful! This multi-layered story was an absolutely charming small-town, reverse boss/employee romance, but it was also a lovely story about family dynamics, redemption and forgiveness, healing, hope, and letting go of the past.

I was hooked on Jake and Colbie right from the start — their meet-cute at the convenience store had me laughing because they did not get off on the right foot AT ALL. So of course, the annoying Thor would end up being here dad’s best employee and surrogate son. Staying in Green Haven was not part of Colbie’s plan — and neither was falling for Jake and his adorable son, Robbie.

Jake and Colbie are two broken characters each carrying around a whole lot of hurt and abandonment issues, but when they are together, it is easy and effortless to be with one another. It is also easy and effortless for Colbie to develop a relationship with Robbie. However, the complications in their relationship come from her estrangement from her dad, Emmett, who is like a second father to Jake, and the sudden return of Jake’s ex, who wants custody of Robbie. Jake has a hard time reconciling how the man he knows, the man who so desperately missed his daughter, was the same father that Colbie felt had abandoned her, and Colbie doesn’t want to be the woman who stands in the way of Robbie having a relationship with his mom.

There are a lot of ups and downs in this story before Colbie and Jake get their HEA. But it’s a wonderful journey, so well-written, and compelling!

After reading this book, I am itching to get to the bottom of Georgia and Rhodes’ “friendship” and can’t wait for their story!!

Sunny Shelly’s Review: No Small Bet by Samantha Christy

No Small Bet by Samantha Christy is now live!

I’m not a dad. I don’t care what any paternity test says.

My grandfather thinks he can manipulate me into being a parent. He can’t. No one can. Not even the pudgy-faced newborn I’ve reluctantly agreed to take home from the hospital.

I’m not a dad. But I’ve also never accepted a bet I can’t win.

One year with the kid. That’s all I have to do to double my trust fund. Fail and I could lose everything.

But I can’t do it on my own, and the only nanny that has lasted longer than two days is forbidden. In a major way. Maybe that’s why she’s become my obsession. Even if she comes from my enemy.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

How did I not suspect that Addie Calloway would find the love of her life with one of the McQuaid brothers?? I have loved Addie’s spunk since I first met her in the Calloway Brothers series, and appreciated that she and her best friend Holland had developed a friendship in spite of the rivalry between their families. Then I met Hawk McQuaid — this couple had me hooked from the start!

I love a story where the cocky hero is brought to his knees, and we got that in spades with Hawk. That character really went on quite the journey in this book, and he grew immensely. Meeting and falling for Addy really brought out a different side to Hawk, and the cocky bastard from Chapter 1 was not the same devoted husband and father who brought me to tears in the epilogue. Hawk was an unexpected surprise of a character!

Samantha Christy wrote a beautiful story with these two characters. Especially when it came to Addie’s prosthesis. While she’s confident and doesn’t let her disability stop her from doing anything, there was one part where she’s really made to feel less-than because of her lost limb. With Hawk, however, he almost revered her for the warrior she is for having survived what she had. Both characters have literal physical scars, and I loved how their vulnerability bonded them.

No Small Bet was a fantastic start to a new series about the McQuaid brothers. This was a beautiful story of finding love in an unlikely place, the healing power of true love, self-forgiveness, and redemption. I honestly don’t know how SC is going to top Hawk and Addie with the rest of the boys!

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

Meet Samantha Christy

Samantha Christy writes sexy new adult and contemporary romances. Although each book is written as a standalone, her series’ tie together so you’ll enjoy seeing characters pop up over and over again.

Regardless of where you start your Samantha Christy journey, you can count on three things: Every book feels REAL (you’ll see bits of yourself in each heroine.) Every story has PAIN (because what’s a good romance without it?) And all her heroines find LOVE (because true romances have an HEA.)
Real. Painful. Love.

Samantha enjoys life as a full-time author under the warm Florida sun with her husband and four children.
