Sunny Shelly’s Review: Seductress by Jessica Prince

Title: Seductress
Series: Whiskey Dolls
Author: Jessica Prince

Contemporary Romance; Small Town Romance; Brother’s Best Friend

I knew my best friend’s little sister was off limits, I just couldn’t help myself.

When a tragic accident caused Ford Grimes to trade the fast pace of the city for the refuge that came with being a small-town firefighter, the last thing he wanted was romance. Then he met the seductive manager of the local pizzeria and found himself questioning all the rules he’d put into place for his new life.

Hardin Shields may as well have had a neon sign strapped to her that said do not touch in big, glowing letters. The single mother had enough on her plate. With a family restaurant to run and an ex who was making her life difficult, the last thing she needed was for her unrequited crush on her older brother’s best friend to take a turn into . . . something.

When the chemistry becomes too hot to ignore, they decide to keep things light and fun, but when danger comes lurking, threatening Hardin, Ford has to decide if he’s strong enough to let go of the pain of the past in order to protect the woman who’s coming to mean too much, or let her go.

**Whiskey Dolls is a series of interconnected, standalone, small town romances.**

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

Another great addition to the Whiskey Dolls series from Jessica Prince! I loved Hardin when we met her and Hazel in Stunner (Asher and Owen’s book) and I was so excited that she was getting her own book — with Owen’s best friend, Ford!

My heart really went out to Ford in this book. He is SUCH a tortured hero! Little pieces of his past are dropped here and there, adding to the mystery of why he came to town seeking a fresh start. Because of his past, he is incredibly reluctant to get involved with Hardin. Simply because she’s a single mom. Yet he can’t help but keep his distance from her and they embark on a no-strings, day-by-day fling.

But emotions are messy and complicated, and they soon take over Ford. And when he thinks he may have lost Hardin for good, he’s forced to take a good look at his past and how he wants to spend his future.

I loved how Hardin and Ford’s friendship bloomed into more, I loved how he was with adorable little Hazel, and I loved his friendship with Owen. Seductress is a feel-good story that will keep you enraptured from the first page to the last!

Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That’s why God created central air, after all.

Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy–she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says.

In addition to being a wife and mom, she’s also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books–romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it’s a passion…there’s a difference. Not that she’d expect a boy to understand.

Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: Makes The Heart Grow Fouler by Carrie Aarons

Makes the Heart Grow Fouler by Carrie Aarons is live!

Never meet your hero, because they’ll probably turn out to be a villain.

That thought didn’t even cross my mind when the magazine I work for assigned me to do a feature article on Dane, the greatest country singer of our generation. You know, the kind of celebrity who doesn’t require a last name because they’re that prolific.

Along with being one of my favorite artists, the notoriously private man has never given an interview in his twenty-year career, so this piece could make mine. Unfortunately, from the minute I step foot on his massive Texas compound, Dane is determined to break it.

Between his icy stares, lewd gestures, and mocking comments, the one-week timetable to ask him my questions comes and goes with zero answers. But for some reason, he won’t pull out of the article. And when he insists I move into his guest house in order to observe him since he refuses to sit down one-on-one, I have no choice but to suck it up for my job.

After the year I’ve had, and the outside world I no longer want any part of, the seclusion is almost welcome. That is, if it didn’t include a sexy recluse who seems hellbent on messing with me. Working with someone I despise wouldn’t be so hard if it meant going home at the end of the day.

From his checkered past, to the rumors about his love life, to the fact that he vanished from the music scene five years ago, to the teenage daughter he’s raised as a single father her entire life … there is so much to unpack in order to learn the truth about the man buried beneath the ink covering his skin.

But the real danger comes when Dane drops the curtain completely, allowing me to see every side of him. Because it makes me want to show him every damaged part of myself.

Except two such opposite, but equally broken, people can never find a happily ever after. Especially since a villain has no heart. So what do I do when the fallen hero I can’t have wants to give me his?

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars


I was so excited when Carrie Aarons revealed that Dane was going to be her next hero, because I was intrigued after meeting him in Say You Love Me Again. Then I started reading MTHGF, and I gotta admit… I hated him those first few chapters! He was such a jerk! But as he fell for Margot, I fell for Dane and loved getting to know the vulnerable man underneath that grouchy exterior.

I really don’t want to say much about this book, because I think the blurb itself speaks volumes. It was unexpected in so many ways, and I loved the journey that Margot and Dane go on from the first page to the last.

Meet Carrie Aarons

Author of romance novels such as Fool Me Twice and Love at First Fight, Carrie Aarons writes books that are just as swoon-worthy as they are sarcastic. A former journalist, she prefers the love stories of her imagination, and the athleisure dress code, much better.

When she isn’t writing, Carrie is busy binging reality TV, having a love/hate relationship with cardio, and trying not to burn dinner. She lives in the suburbs of New Jersey with her husband, two children and ninety-pound rescue pup.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

While somewhat predictable, Tristan was a super cute best friend’s sister/roommate/fake marriage romance. It’s low drama, zero angst, and full of steam and sweetness as playboy Tristan falls for his best friend’s little sister while giving Kendra a place to recover after she’s had a domestic violence (off-page) situation with her ex.

Both Tristan and Kendra have always had feelings for each other, but neither of them ever acted on them. Once she’s living as his roommate, it’s not long before they give in to those temptations. They start out as a friends-with-benefits fling since their relationship has an expiration date, but it’s clear they both want more.

I enjoyed the arc of Tristan’s character. The guy we meet 0n Page 1 who gets a phone call that Kendra has been hurt is not the same guy who steps up to be a dad to another man’s child at the end of this book. It’s sweet, it’s moving, and maybe not being able to have Kendra is the reason why Tristan never settled down before he had a chance with her.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: Parentmoon by L.B. Dunbar


PARENTMOON, by USA Today bestselling author LB Dunbar, is Available Now! This is a sexy silver fox standalone with one bed, shower shenanigans, and a romantic atmosphere that’s a little too tempting for this single mom in need of a vacation.

Grab your copy here!

Amazon US:

Amazon AU:

Amazon CA:

*Kindle Unlimited*


What to expect:

✔️Sexy single dad

✔️One bed

✔️Holiday getaway

✔️Opposites attract


When the divorced mother of the groom goes head-to-head with the single father of the bride, they might be the next couple experiencing a heart-to-heart.

When my son asked me to take his ticket for the honeymoon that didn’t happen, I balked. What would I do on a ten-day vacation in Belize?

More importantly, what caused my son and the love of his life to call off their wedding?

I didn’t have an answer, and he wasn’t sharing

So, I’d traded places with him.

Over a week of sunshine and me-time was on the docket until he arrived.

Dallas Cole had silver in his beard, eyes the color of an ocean, and the most annoying drawl. And by annoying, I mean, thigh-clenching, heart-hammering, make me want to kiss him swagger.

Only, that’s something I would never do, because he’s the single father of the bride for the wedding that never was, and now, he’s encroaching on my parentmoon.

One house. One bed. Not happening.

So what if he calls me darlin’ in that swoony voice. Not going there despite his smirky grin amongst the gray on his jaw. Not going to think about the fact he saw me naked . . . by accident.


The former father of the bride will only be going head-to-head with this protective mother of the groom, not lips to lips, or any other body part. And definitely not heart to heart.

Tropes: sexy silver fox; later-in-life; genXromance; one-bed; forced proximity; holiday destination; single dad; single mom; he falls first

This book was so fun! The mother of the groom and the father of the bride spend what would have been their kids’ honeymoon together in Belize. I loved the premise of this story, and LB Dunbar did a great job of telling Dallas and Jo’s story!

I binged Parentmoon in a single reading while tucked in bed late at night and I just could not put it down. I loved seeing Jo loosen up and just go with the flow when she was with Dallas. And I had to know: What led to Michael and Keli calling off the wedding?

When Dallas finally showed his vulnerable side, I’m not gonna lie; it made me tear up. What happens next was an epic reunion. Dallas slayed all of Jo’s dragons, fought off the iguanas, crumbled her walls… and she melted his heart in return and brought him back to life.

I can’t recommend Parentmoon enough! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

Free in Kindle Unlimited
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
Heart of Gold is a super sweet novella set in Amie Knight’s Heart world. Will and Ramsey are college students who have been best friends since they were 8 years old. Both of them have feelings for one another, but are afraid to admit it and ruin their friendship. When Ramsey’s roommate Asia informs her that another guy in their dorm likes her, it pretty much scares Will into losing her to someone else. (But Asia knows what she’s doing and gives Will the push he needs!)

Will suggests a fake date to prepare Ramsey to date for real. And he has every intention on making sure she knows there is no better guy for her than him.

Adorable, if not predictable. At only 8 chapters, this book is one that is easy to read in one sitting. And easy to fall in love with Ramsey and Will.

This book is loosely connected to A Steel Heart since Miranda was once Will’s babysitter when he was a kid, and there is a lovely appearance by Miranda and Holden.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

She’s a dedicated wife and mother with a deep love of music, makeup, and house plants.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: The Coldest Winter by Brittainy C. Cherry

The Coldest Winter by Brittainy Cherry is now live! 

I didn’t know he was forbidden until after our one night stand…

I met Milo Corti during his self-destructive era, and he met me at the beginning of mine. That night when we crossed paths at a college party, we only had one goal: to feel good during our hell storms.

After we parted ways, I’d planned never to see him again. That was until I showed up for my first day as a student-teacher and found him sitting right there before me. Now I was forced to cross paths with the person meant to be nothing more than a fading memory.

The more time we spent together, the more drawn I felt toward him. When his world shifted for the worst, I couldn’t help but to lean in closer.

I’d always done the right thing. For the first time ever, I wanted to do something very wrong. I wanted to fall in love with the one person who was off-limits.

The problem with falling for something forbidden? Once you began to descend, you were destined to crash and burn.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Oh Wow. I wish I could give The Coldest Winter more than 5 stars. This book is so much more than a forbidden romance between a student-teacher and one of the pupils in her high school English class. It is a wonderful exploration of loss, grief, drowning in sadness, depression, life changes, and so much more.

Starlet meets Milo on her 21st birthday at a frat party — hours after she walked in on her boyfriend cheating on her the night she thought he was going to propose. That chance encounter, that one-night-stand, changed both of their lives forever. Starlet was… well, a shining star… for Milo. A warm beacon of light in a dark, low time of his life.

And as much as Star lifted up Milo, he had just as much of an impact on her life. Things get so rocky between them at one point, but they both grow into the people they are supposed to be because of their relationship with each other. And it’s a beautiful thing.

Don’t miss this one.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: Worth the Chance by Evey Lyon


WORTH THE CHANCE, an enemies to lovers, single dad romance, by Evey Lyon is AVAILABLE NOW!!

Grab your copy here:



Baseball star Spencer Crews knows April can’t stand him, yet his proposition of temporarily living together is the biggest curveball of his career…

Making a certain kind of video with my enemy (who happens to be everyone’s favorite baseball player) was not my proudest moment, but I blame the alcohol for Spencer’s smirk three seconds before our clothes ended up on the floor for our one-night mistake. He said he deleted the video, which is why I didn’t expect the jerk to interrupt my date a few months later to break the news that we have a problem. His solution is to avoid the press by staying at his lake house to hide away and I stupidly agree.

The next thing I know, I have two tiny eyes staring at me.

Yep, I discover Spencer is a hot single dad to a cute little girl secret. And that’s not the only twist, because the small town by the lake seems to bring us closer; all of us. Spencer and my arguments fizzle out, and our looks grow longer. We talk like it matters and study one another’s bodies. It feels like we are in our own little world. And in the end, I’m not sure if it’s Spencer or me who’s trying to convince us we may just be worth the chance…

Spencer and April bring the banter and steam in this enemies to lovers, single dad, and completely swoon-worthy forced proximity story. Worth the Chance is book two in the standalone interconnected Lake Spark series. For lovers of small-town romance with a touch of sports.

Find other books by Evey Lyon here:


Worth the Chance is a fun and feisty enemies-to-lovers story with a ton of witty banter between Spencer and Abigail. They pretty much can’t stand each other, but they have an alcohol-fueld romp the night of the baby shower for her best friend and his best friend. (Who are the couple from book 1; I didn’t read that, but did not feel like I was missing any backstory.)

A few months later, someone is threatening to leak the naughty video Abigail and Spencer accidentally made that night, and he thinks it’s best for them both if she moves in with him until things blow over. The forced vacation is not ideal, as she keeps reminding him, but Abigail begins to soften around Spencer when she sees how great he is with his daughter Hadley; a daughter that the press doesn’t know exists. It took a lot for Spencer to let Abigail into his sanctuary and be a part of Hadley’s life, and it pays off for him because Abigail and Hadley begin to develop a wonderful friendship on their own.

I thought this story progressed nicely through the different stages of Spencer and Abigail’s relationship. I felt their feelings for one another change and grow, and I loved being along for the ride as they and Hadley became a family unit.

Worth the Chance is the first book I’ve read by Evey Lyon, and I’m so glad I took the chance on it! I definitely want to check out Hudson and Piper’s story (book 1) and look forward to Ford’s story in the future!

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.


Evey loves to write heartwarming feel-good romance that may just make you blush. The pages of her books are filled with swoon, wit, and steamy moments. An American from the Midwest, she now lives in Europe where she drinks way too much coffee, types away on a laptop with music on repeat, and stares at her yoga mat that she should probably use again…

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
When I first met Abigail and Tristan as side characters in Made for Me, I knew that they were going to be a couple I looked forward to. And their story in Made for Us did not disappoint!

Made for Us takes place about four years after Made For Me. Tristan has done a wonderful job raising Penelope as a single dad, and Abigail still has a special connection with the little girl she bonded with back when she was a nursing student. And they are both hopelessly, secretly in love with the other. Right after Abigail graduates from nursing school, the Cooper-Stone family is off on another family vacation… and Tristan and Penelope are invited along. Maybe it is the tropical air, maybe it was the island drinks, but on the last night of vacation, Tristan and Abigail finally give into whatever has been brewing between them.

And she freaks out.

And then freaks out some more when she discovers several weeks later that she is pregnant.

While I hate when the heroine keeps her pregnancy from the hero, I get why it happened that way in this story. When he finally puts two and two together and realizes that he is the father, it brings to the surface all of his guilt about not having been there for Penelope as a newborn. And he is rightfully angry that he is missing out on the experience yet again because Abigail neglected to tell him the truth.

But this man steps up, because of course he does, and finally these two get on the same page. There’s not really a courtship and their make-up is kinda uneventful, but it comes after one of my favorite scenes in the book, when Tristan stands up and takes his place as the father.

I am loving this series, and Made For Us was another great book for this hockey dynasty family!

Sunny Shelly’s Review: Over My Brother’s Dead Body, Chase Andrews by Piper Rayne

Over My Brother’s Dead Body, Chase Andrews by Piper Rayne is now live! 

Chase Andrews.

The Kingsmen’s top tight end.
My brother’s friend and teammate.
My new neighbor.
The grumpy to my sunshine.

But underneath that grumpy exterior, there’s so much more.

Chase likes to pretend nothing affects him, but I’ve seen glimpses of his other side in the time we’ve spent together.

And the more we get to know each other, the more I’m falling for him.

Under normal circumstances, this would be great. Except my hyper-protective big brother thinks no man is good enough for me, and my ex-fiancé is trying to win me back.

One charming, seemingly good man already broke my heart. Am I stupid to give a self-confessed relationship-adverse football player a chance to break it a second time?

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Oh my heart! I know that we are only three books into the Kingsmen series, but Chase and Twyla are my favorites!!! This story was wonderful!

I loved that Chase has always been attracted to Twyla over the years, but kept a respectful distance since she had a boyfriend/was engaged. Now that her engagement is off, Twyla has moved to San Francisco for a period of time to get away from the memories of her wedding that wasn’t. And she ends up cat-sitting for the guy who lives in the condo across the hall from Chase. A wonderful friendship develops between these two as they bond over *book club* and American Horror Story, and I was shipping them hard before they gave in to their lust.

That shower scene was HOT! And listening to Jason Clarke and Savannah Peachwood in duet made this book all the more sinfully delicious. I binged listening to most of this book at once because I could not press pause on those two narrators!

Sunny Shelly’s Review: Southpaw by Ginger Scott


SOUTHPAW by Ginger Scott is LIVE!!! Grab this enemies-to-lovers, grumpy sunshine, sports romance now!!

Add it to your TBR:


Sutter Mason is sick and tired of ballplayers. And pitchers? The worst!

She’s over their inflated egos. Done with their magnetic charm. And as far as she’s concerned, the broken promise the last ace left her with was her final strike in the game of love.

The problem? Her dad is the coach of the hometown minor league team. And the hot new lefty who just joined the squad? He’s her brother’s new roommate. This time around, instead of falling for the player, she’s going to use him to get what she wants—the perfect case study for her psychology thesis.

No dates. No feelings. Zero extra innings. Simply a business relationship that ends when the season is done or Jensen Hawke is pulled up for prime time.

Arizona Monsoon rookie Jensen Hawke is laser-focused—on proving he’s more than just hype, on breaking the league’s strikeout record, and on getting called up to the big leagues.

Jensen doesn’t do relationships. He doesn’t even really do friends. But his stubborn attitude is getting him in trouble on the mound. His control comes and goes. His curveball is a mess. And every time his roommate’s cute sister points out that it’s probably all in his head, he wants to scream.

But when a single conversation with her seems to up his game, Jensen decides maybe he’s got time for one relationship while he chases his dream. Just a little positive mental coaching. Nothing but two people working toward shared goals.

So what if Sutter Mason gets him more than anyone ever has. Believes in him in a way that makes him believe too. Looks at him like he’s actually special. And so what if he’s starting to feel things he swore off for good.

In baseball, sometimes all it takes is one spectacular play to change the game. And Jensen Hawke and Sutter Mason didn’t see each other coming. With love on the line, everything is riding on this next pitch.
* Southpaw is a standalone, new adult, enemies-to-lovers, grumpy-sunshine baseball romance full of angst, steam and swoon.

Find more books by Ginger Scott here:


Southpaw is a spicy enemies-to-lovers romance between a lefty pitcher with a mental block and the coach’s daughter/his roommate’s sister. Jensen needs help getting out of his own way, and Sutter needs to redo her mater’s thesis paper as a psychology student. She reluctantly convinces him to give her a week to work with him on “mental training” — when all is said and done, will he be able to score big on the field and with the girl?

I loved how Sutter was always just *there* in Jensen’s apartment because she used to live there and how her constant appearances aggravated him. “I have a key” becomes a running joke between them — and in the end, Sutter’s key opened up a lot more than just the apartment door. Jensen is a really relatable hero — I loved the vulnerability he showed. I thought that Sutter was a bit bratty and entitled at times, but I did warm up to her eventually. (It just took me a bit! HA!)
