GET A LIFE, CHLOE BROWN
By Talia Hibbert
Chloe Brown is a chronically ill computer geek with a goal, a plan, and a list. After almost -but not quite- dying, she's come up with seven directives to "get a life," and she's already completed the first: finally moving out of her glamorous family's mansion. The next items?
Enjoy a drunken night out.
Ride a motorcycle
Have meaningless but thoroughly enjoyable sex
Travel the world with nothing but hand luggage.
And... do something bad.
But it's not easy being bad, even when you've written step-by-step guidelines on how to do it correctly. What Chloe needs is a teacher, and she knows just the man for the job.
Redford "Red" Morgan is a handyman with tattoos, a motorcycle, and more sex appeal than ten-thousand Hollywood heartthrobs. He's also an artist who paints at night and hides his work in the light of day, which Chloe knows because she spies on him occasionally. Just the teeniest, tiniest bit.
But when she enlists Red in her mission to rebel, she learns things about him that no spy session could teach her. Like why he clearly resents Chlo's wealthy background. And why he never shows his art to anyone. And what really lies beneath his rough exterior....
I give Get A LIFE, CHLOE Brown 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Here to Stay by Ariana Herrera
Julia del Mar Ortiz is not having the best year.
She moved to Dallas with her boyfriend, who ended up ditching her and running back to New York after only a few weeks. Left with a massive—by NYC standards, anyway—apartment and a car lease in the scorching Texas heat, Julia is struggling…except that’s not completely true. Running the charitable foundation of one of the most iconic high fashion department stores in the world is serious #lifegoals.
It’s more than enough to make her want to stick it out down South.
The only monkey wrench in Julia’s plans is the blue-eyed, smart-mouthed consultant the store hired to take them public. Fellow New Yorker Rocco Quinn’s first order of business? Putting Julia’s job on the chopping block.
When Julia is tasked with making sure Rocco sees how valuable the programs she runs are, she’s caught between a rock and a very hard set of abs. Because Rocco Quinn is almost impossible to hate—and even harder to resist.
I give Here to Stay 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Adriana Herrera did a fantastic job making the characters so real and relatable; it’s almost like we are all friends.
I loved the humor she used to get the points across, and girl, I could almost feel Rocco’s abs!

The Wild Side by Cassie- Ann L. Miller
That marriage pact I made with my grumpy, off-limits best friend. That was totally a joke...Right?
It was a heat-of-the-moment agreement scribbled onto the back of a crinkled gas station receipt nine years ago.
"If neither of us are married by age 30, we'll marry each other."
Haha! So funny!
Cash moved to a city 500 miles away. Building his billion-dollar empire. Making a name for himself.
Me? I stayed in our gossipy hometown. Working a simple job. Living a simple life.
And we never discussed the marriage pact again.
But I just turned the big three-oh.
And Cash showed up at my door, in the middle of a freaking rainstorm.
Tall, muscled and soaking wet.
With a birthday cake in his hand and a daring smirk that says he means business.
Holy plot twist! Didn't see that coming!
Now the small town rumor mill is in overdrive.
Cash is dissolving my defences with those sexy half-smiles he saves just for me.
And my brain is exploding with what ifs...
What if we give this a shot?
What if we're crazy enough to try?
What if we're good together?
We've always been 'just friends'. We're experts at playing it safe.
But his skin on my skin leaves me reeling. His oh-so-fiery kisses melt my excuses.
I know our decade-plus friendship is on the line. But I'm aching to see Cash's wild side.
The Wild Side 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
This is book had me laughing out loud. Filled with humor but also a story line that kept me hooked for what is next. I loved Meghan and Cash's story. The book oozed sex appeal and you could picture the characters through the entire book. Cassie did an incredible job of leaving you wanting more.
The Wild One by Cassie- Ann L. Miller
Guys like Jasper—I bet you know the type. The chiseled arms. The wavy hair. The melt-your-brain-cells smile.
Good thing I'm a smart girl—Honey Hill's former child prodigy, to be precise—I should know better than to fall for this playboy's charm.
Here's the thing, though. The man is an expert at solving my problems. And he always knows how to make me laugh. And those hands...Those big, rough mechanic hands...
Oh, damn. What's that I just said about resisting his charm? Never mind.
Right as our clothes are about to go flying, Jasper's playboy ways catch up to him. And his life goes to hell in a picnic basket.
Welp. Should have seen that coming.
What I didn't expect was that Jasper would turn to me for help. And that I would accept.
And I definitely didn't expect to discover the 'paternal side' he's had hidden all along.
When he rocks his sweet baby girl to sleep in those big, tattooed arms, 'come to daddy' takes on a whole new meaning.
Now, I just want to crawl between his sheets and keep him up past his bed time...if you know what I mean.
But we both know we shouldn't cross that line. Because Jasper is the sudden single dad. And I'm the reluctant nanny. There's way too much at stake.
Yet, each stolen kiss ignites a wildfire. And each whispered confession leaves me craving his heart.
Fine. I should know better. But I just want to tame this wild one. Once and for all.
The Wild One 5 Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
The Wild One was a perfect sequel to the wild side. The Westbrook brothers are wild and fun and when you least expect it they find the one. I can't wait for the next book that comes out in Feb. to hear the rest of the family's story.
