Sunny Shelly’s Review: Rumour Has It by Naaz Spencer

Rumour Has It by Naaz Spencer is now live!

Aiden
I fell in love with my best friend and then broke her heart when we were nineteen.
Tiffany Harrington refuses to have anything to do with me outside of work.
She’s spent years cleaning up my playboy image, but all I want is her.
Tiffy refuses to give me another chance, no matter how much I beg. And I’m not above begging.
But life just threw us a devastating curveball and I’ll be by her side even if she pushes me away.
I’d do anything for that woman because she is my world.
Even if she doesn’t realise it yet.

Tiffany
Aiden Sinclair is a liability, but when he gets too close, I lose all sense.
He’s been my weakness ever since we were kids. But we are the past and I’m only concerned about my future.
I won’t let him shatter my heart a second time.
Or that was the plan.
When Mum is diagnosed with cancer, Aiden’s the person I run to.
The only one who can help me is him.
Behind the playboy is still the man I love, and I don’t know how much longer I can refuse to acknowledge it.
Because time is a precious thing.

Rumour Has It is book 2 in the Seven Deadly Sinclairs series and can be read as a standalone.

This book contains topics that some may find triggering. These include scenes and discussion of cancer and cancer treatment, time in hospital, death, loss of a parent, grief, mature language and sexually explicit scenes.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

Rumour Has It is a charming second-chance, best-friends romance from a new-to-me author. I quite enjoyed reading this book by Naaz Spencer, and thought she did a lovely job of portraying the hurt and heartbreak between Aiden and Tiffany — as well as the groveling, reconnecting, and falling back in love. This book deals with the sensitive topic of a parent dying of cancer, and I thought that added so much to the story. Her mom’s diagnosis was a turning point for Tiffany in forgiving Aiden. Amid all the angst, there are some very sweet moments, and I enjoyed Tiffany and Aiden’s journey very much. I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: Whispers of You by Catherine Cowles

💙WHISPERS OF YOU IS LIVE💙

Fall for Holt and Wren in their second-chance, forced proximity small town romance from USA Today Bestselling Author, Catherine Cowles!

One night—a single moment—cost me everything.

My body, broken beyond repair. The boy I’d thought was my forever. The life I’d always dreamt of.

Now, Holt’s back. And he’s no longer a boy, but a man with shadows in his eyes and demons haunting him.

He says he’s here to make things right. To get back a little bit of all we’ve lost. And he doesn’t show any signs of leaving the small town that has been my refuge.

As stolen moments turn to days, Holt’s around every corner. With his burning stare and lingering touches. Before long, my walls come crashing down and I’m just hoping that taking this second chance isn’t as reckless as it feels.

But not everyone is happy that Holt has returned. As tragedy strikes again, I’m the one left in the crosshairs. And Holt might not be able to save me this time…

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Ah, Whispers of You is a fantastic start to a new series! It has all of the bits that I’ve come to love in a Catherine Cowles book!

Wren and Holt were perfection! I adored this second-chance romance, and how these two broken characters found their way back to one another. It’s coming up on the 10th anniversary of the shooting spree that ripped their town apart. While Wren has carried physical and psychological scars from that horrible night, Holt has carried emotional scars on the inside. He’s never forgiven himself for not being there for Wren when she was attacked. But rather than be there for her, Holt left town and joined the military, feeling as if he wasn’t good enough for having disappointed her. But the second he sees Wren again, he knows that he can’t continue to live his life without her.

At first, Wren wants nothing from Holt and struggles to find a way to co-exist with him back in town. But when strange attacks begin again in Cedar Ridge and she becomes a target, Holt makes it his personal mission to be her protector. The man he is at 28 is not the same boy he was at 18, but will Wren be able to forgive him for his past mistakes?

I loved how Andi Arndt and Zachary Webber narrated this story. They captured every nuance of this couple, and brilliantly brought the story to life.

I can’t wait for more from the Lost & Found series!

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: Letting Go at 40 by L.B. Dunbar

Letting Go at 40 by L.B. Dunbar is now live!

She didn’t think it could ever happen again. Love that is. And it definitely shouldn’t be happening with him. 

Anna Kulis has lost her husband. Their love was a perfect kind of love; a once in a lifetime experience. She never intended to fall for anyone again. Never expected to have this attraction stirring inside her. And she never thought her emotions would run wild for the one man she shouldn’t be attracted to – her late husband’s best friend.

Mason Becker has a secret. As a renowned ladies’ man, he’s been in love with his best friend’s wife for twenty-five years. After his friend’s untimely death, and a period of grief, Mason finds himself in a compromising position with the one woman he didn’t think he’d ever have. And that night leads to complications – namely, a desire for more.

Letting go can be one of the hardest tasks for the heart.
Opening up to a second chance at love can be even harder.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

I have been waiting for Mason and Anna’s story since the first Lakeside Cottage book and it did not disappoint!

“Ben was one in a million, but you’re a million in one.”

Anna is Ben’s widow, and Mason was his best friend — who has been in love with Anna from Day One. During the year of Ben’s illness, and even after his death, Mason steps up to take care of Anna and her kids, even though it kills him to be so close to her. Meanwhile, Anna was always ambivalent about Mason. She didn’t understand why he was so tight with her husband, and didn’t like the guy much at all. But during the months he lives with her family, she begins to see a different side to Mason and really gets to know the guy as the fiercely loyal friend her husband had loved.

As Mason and Anna both work through their grief, they turn to each other for friendship and support. Sometimes the lines get blurred, and my heart broke for Mason as he wanted so much to really truly be there for Anna when she was at times just using him to ease her pain. When Anna started developing genuine feelings for Mason, she was tormented by guilt that it was too soon after her husband’s death to be moving on — with his best friend of all people.

I loved how even though these characters are both in their 40s, they are somewhat stunted when it comes to dating and relationships. Yes, Anna is a widow, but Ben was pretty much her only boyfriend and she met him when she was a teenager. And Mason has shoved down the pain of being in love with a woman he could never have by indulging in a series of short flings over the years, never making a commitment. So while they dance around each other for a long time before they finally get together, their relationship is full of miscommunication. He thinks he’s showing her with actions but doesn’t say the words. And by not hearing the words, she isn’t sure of his true feelings. I so enjoyed the journey these two went on and how they finally, finally came together.

Letting Go at 40 was a phenomenal story, but an intense one!

Sunny Shelly’s Review: Make A Wish by Helena Hunting

♥ NEW RELEASE ♥

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…

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Make A Wish is the third and final book in the Spark House series, and I loved the journey that youngest sister Harley went through with Gavin, the hot widowed dad she used to nanny for. This book had a heavier feel to it than the others did, simply because Gavin was kind of stuck in the past as far as grieving his late wife Marcie (who died the day their daughter Peyton was born) and his feelings about making a future with Harley.

Helena Hunting infused this book with her signature charm and wit, and gracefully handled how Gavin came to terms with moving past the love he lost. I also felt that the issues Gavin had with his mother-in-law and her grief were handled wonderfully. Sure, Karen was mean and snippy, but once they really got into things, it was clear that she was consumed by grief herself. And Payton is a wonderful little girl and brought so much to the story.

I went back and forth between listening to this book on audio and reading it, and I adored how Jason Clarke and Stella Bloom brought these characters to life.

Make A Wish is a wonderful story about finding love after loss, and I think it was my favorite of the bunch. And I loved all three books! And the bonus epilogue was a fantastic wrap-up for this series!

I received a complimentary copy from St. Martin’s Press via NetGalley and voluntarily left a review.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: Keep This Promise by Corinne Michaels

 

I’m about to lose everything.

My home. My name. My future.

My husband was involved in something that could cost us our lives, and on his deathbed, he demands my daughter and I flee Britain.

I had no idea he found her biological father, Holden James, in Rose Canyon, and that’s where we’d start over.

The moment we see each other, feelings I’d long forgotten rush over me. Holden doesn’t hesitate to care for us. We find ourselves reaching for each other, even when we should hold back. His smile warms me, his arms protect me, and against my better judgment, I fall for him. All the possibilities of a future are threatened by a looming past.

I’m being hunted, and it’s just a matter of time before someone finds me guilty of crimes I didn’t commit. Whatever trouble my husband was involved in won’t evade me forever.

I am trying to keep my promise and stay for Holden, but I don’t know how long it’ll be before we have to run.

My name was Sophie Pearson, but I vanished, just like my hope to ever find love again.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

I’d kind of been hoping that Holden and Addie would end up together before she left Rose Canyon, but I think that Sophie was the perfect match for him!

When Sophie and Eden turn up on his doorstep, Holden is shocked; but immediately KNOWS that Eden is his daughter. He goes above and beyond to not only make their lives comfortable in Rose Canyon, but to protect them from the murky past of Sophie’s shady late husband, Theo.

I loved the crossover of characters on Sophie’s protection detail — especially Zach from Melanie Harlow’s latest book, Tempt!!

Keep This Promise was full of intrigue as the suspense story that started in the first book continued to play out — and eventually was wrapped up. Nice twist, Corinne! Didn’t expect that ending!

Sunny Shelly’s Review: How to Lose at Love, by Sara Ney

Release Date: January 19

I needed a good girl to save my bad reputation.
With too much on my plate, the very last thing on my mind was a relationship—the football draft was looming and dating got in the way. I never understood why my teammates bothered with girlfriends. None of us had the time.
When my sports agent suggested that being seen in public with a respectable girl would begoodfor mybadreputation, I couldn’t think of a single person to help me out. The only girls I knew weren’t wifey material, and the ones who were? Might catch feelings.
Except Ryann Winters.
Responsible. Sarcastic. Smart. Ryann was perfect but there wasoneclincher: she was my teammates ex-girlfriend and I had recently beenpaidby him to dump her.
Not the best start to a fake relationship…

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

Duke’s brothers (The Secret Roommate) have their own series! Yay! I loved that rowdy bunch when Duke and Posey helped them move into their house at college, and now we get to spend a whole series there and watch the three younger Colter brothers fall in love! First up is Dallas…

Man, Dallas and Ryann really get off on the wrong foot when he’s paid by her boyfriend, one of his teammates, to dump her. That sets up a hilarious hate-to-love situation when she reluctantly agrees to be his fake girlfriend to rehab his reputation. (That idea is Elias Cohen’s, from The Makeout Artist.)

The witty banter between Dallas and Ryann reminded me so much of how Duke and Posey started out. There are some hilarious barbs exchanged between them, and Ryann doesn’t take his crap. That makes this book a whole lot of fun. It’s flirty and sexy, and I love a good story when a guy who has zero desire for a relationship falls hard and fast. I appreciated how Ryann didn’t drag it out when she realized she had feelings for Dallas, and they had an honest conversation about becoming official.

How to Lose at Love is a charming, low-angst college sports romance that I devoured in a day, and I can’t wait to see what comes next for the other Colter brothers!

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Tissues are most definitely needed for this second-chance romance! Ella and Alden grow up across the street from each other and while they never technically date, they are in love from the time they are 13. She was in love with him long before he snuck in her window that first night to kiss her.

Life takes them in different directions, but they eventually find their way back to each other. Alden was a bit of the rebel after his dad left, and he vows to make something of himself before he feels worthy to be with Ella. And once he does and they finally get together, life is glorious. Until it’s not.

These characters and the backstory were so thought out. There’s a great camaraderie among the neighborhood kids, including Alden’s twin, Oliver, and Ella’s best friend, Tori. They rely on one another, lift each other up, and stick by each other’s side always.

Part one of a duet, this book ends on a shocking cliffhanger. The second half, Always Us, will be available soon thankfully bc I need to get the conclusion of Ella and Alden’s story!

Sunny Shelly’s Review: A Greene Family Christmas by Piper Rayne

Preparing a Christmas to remember is no small feat with a family the size of the Greenes.

Especially when the woman who has always been the planner down to every minute detail, falls ill only five days before the holiday. The family has no choice but to scramble to ensure that nothing is amiss. Cookies need to be decorated, gingerbread houses assembled and decorations to be hung. They’ll need all hands on deck, both young and old, to make this holiday happen. But of course, what would a Greene Christmas be if not chaotic with a dash of drama?

A perfect ending for the Greene Family series, wrapped up in a pretty bow! I have loved getting to know this blended family. The Greene Family Christmas is a sweet novella set 12 years after Chevelle and Cam’s book and is a warm, happy hug for fans of this series as we get to catch up on where all the siblings are years down the road.

But my favorite part? My favorite parts were the chapters about Rylan Greene and Calista Bailey. Piper Rayne have been teasing readers FOREVER with those two, and they’ve set up Rylan and Calista’s upcoming story with lots of hurt feelings and regrets. And I cannot wait!

Thanks for the Christmas present, ladies. It was a treat!

Sunny Shelly’s Review: How The Grump Saved Christmas by Claire Kingsley

How the Grump Saved Christmas by Claire Kingsley is NOW AVAILABLE!!

Get your copy on Amazon here: https://readerlinks.com/l/2959750

Listen on Audible here: https://www.audible.com/pd/B0BLP68QF3

How the Grump Saved Christmas:

Hardworking Isabelle Cook has a serious problem. Her family farm, site of Tilikum’s Christmas Village, is in trouble. Big trouble. And worst of all? The man trying to buy it is none other than the grumpiest, grinchiest man of them all—Elias Stoneheart.

That’s a big nope. She’s not letting him get involved. Not with his heart made of coal.

Elias Stoneheart is in the business of making money, not friends. Especially when his boss is promising a long-awaited promotion. All he has to do is convince one struggling family to sell their farm.

The problem? It’s Cook Family Farm. And Isabelle Cook is his ex.

He might have history with Isabelle, but this is just business. A Christmas-loving farm girl is not going to come between him and his ambition.

And Christmas? He hates it. Christmas Village needs to go.

But as Elias spends time in the small town, holiday spirit—and Isabelle—get under his skin. And she might be the only one who can melt the ice around his heart.

Author’s Note: a sassy farm girl takes on a grumpy businessman in this cozy, snowy, small-town Christmas romance. Saucy banter, a guard donkey, plenty of holiday cheer, and a heartwarming happily ever after that will make you believe in the magic of Christmas.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Four truths, no lies: I love feel-good Christmas movies. The grumpy/sunshine trope is my new romcom favorite. I’m a sucker for a second-chance romance. And I am a huge fan of Claire Kingsley’s books. Mash them all together, and you get this absolutely charming holiday book!

How The Grump Saved Christmas is one of those books where I could just envision each scene playing out like a movie. I was intrigued by Elias and Isabelle’s story when I first met her in Rewriting The Stars, and was thrilled that we would get to go back to Tilikum — at Christmastime! — to get to know them better. (But don’t worry, Grump is a stand-alone, second-chance story. Don’t let that stop you from reading the Bailey Brothers series next, however!)

I adored Elias and Isabelle. She is sassy and fierce. And he sure is grumpy. But after these former high school sweethearts reconnect and they spend more time together, her hate for him softens, and his ice-cold heart melts and starts beating again.

I had the pleasure of listening to Stephen Dexter and Samantha Brentmoor being this delightful story to life, and they perfectly played these characters. This story hit all the right notes when it comes to a second chance, small-town romance, and it is a story I know I will come back to time and time again.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: Single and Ready to Jingle by Piper Rayne

 

The girl who loves Christmas falls for the Grinch—it’s a Christmas miracle.


What started as a dumpster fire of a blind date turns into a deal.


In truth, it probably didn’t help that I showed up dressed like an elf but that’s a story for another time. Our start was rocky at best which is why it’s so frustrating that I can’t stop thinking about his sexy British accent. Or the way his chest and arms fill out his suit. Or his perfect hair with that single streak of grey at the front.


Santa likes lists and so do I, so here’s all the reasons why Andrew and I aren’t right for each other:


He’s my brother’s best friend

He’s the biggest grump I’ve ever met.

He hates Christmas.


That last one is big for a girl like me who thinks that the entire month of December should be a national holiday. So, when he calls for my help in planning his firm’s holiday party, I can’t pass up the opportunity to grow my small business. Bonus, we make a deal, and he agrees to attend three holiday events with me so I can make him fall in love with Christmas. As if I’d pass up an opportunity to make a Grinch’s heart grow three times its size.


It isn’t long until I discover Andrew has a very real reason to hate Christmas and I start to see him in a different light. That’s when the Christmas miracle begins.

What happens when you cross a Christmas-loving heroine with a Grinchy Scrooge who hates everything about the holiday? You get this adorable romcom from Piper Rayne! Sweet and swoony and full of holiday cheer!

Kenzie and Andrew were magical together. They definitely get off on the wrong foot, and he is such a grumpy a-hole. But soon they begin to spend more time together after they make a pact — he needs her to plan his law firm’s holiday party so he has a better chance at making partner, and she wants to get him to love Christmas again. And it’s not long before Kenzie discovers that there is a very sweet side to the grumpy Brit after all. I mean, he buys every hot chocolate flavor and topping he can find because he didn’t know what she liked? Swoon!

Both Kenzie and Andrew have some deep-rooted insecurities that affect their relationship, and of course that leads to The Conflict. And Andrew does some grade-A groveling to make it up to Kenzie after their relationship implodes. I never would have imagined that the grump we met on their blind date was the same guy who is with Kenzie at the end of the book, but that’s love for you! And some Christmas magic!

Narrators John Lane and CJ Bloom were perfection in bringing this delectable holiday tale to life!
