Blurb

Snagging a date? Not a problem. But one that meets my special requirements?

As the premier best-man-for hire in all of Manhattan, I promise discretion, so when I need a plus one for a couple of “I dos,” she needs to be A-Plus in reliability. Fortunately, I have a brilliant solution in asking my best friend’s sister to go on my arm. Truly is my good friend, too, and I trust her completely.

Just look how discreet she’s been about the time we spent the night together. But, it was only once, and it was months ago. We’ve been the souls of restraint ever since. I’m sure we can make it through these weddings without banging each other in the limo. Probably.

Plus, she needs my help with a business proposal. A little I’ll-scratch-your-back-you-scratch-mine doesn’t have to lead to the bedroom, right?

Good thing we know our way around the friend zone. The treacherous, torturous all-too-easy to slide out of friend zone…

Instant Gratification is told from the hero's POV, so if you loved Big Rock, Mister O, or Full Package, you’ll devour this new standalone rom-com!

“Whoa. Undeniable is one of my top reads! Sizzling chemistry, off the charts sexual tension and all the feels I’ve come to expect with a Melanie Harlow romance!”- Ilsa Madden-Mills, Wall Street Journal bestselling author 

 

Undeniable, an all-new sexy standalone second chance romance from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow, is available now!

 

Undeniable AMAZON.jpg


When we were eleven, Oliver Ford Pemberton dared me to jump off a barn roof. He said you couldn’t break a leg from a 12-foot-jump.

He lied.

(You can also break a collarbone, which served him right as far as I was concerned.)

I wish I could say it was the last dare I ever took from him, the last bet I ever made with him, the last time I ever trusted Oliver Ford Pemberton.

But it wasn’t.

Because he had the nerve to grow up gorgeous, charming, and sexy. And as we got older, the dares only got dirtier—and the betting stakes higher—until finally, he left me in pieces. I swore I’d never talk to him again.

But twenty years after I took that flying leap, he’s back in my life, daring me to risk everything for him: my job, my self-worth, and my heart.

How many chances does true love deserve?

Undeniable - Teaser 4 AN

Excerpt

Fueled by pent-up lust and scotch, we stumbled into Oliver’s room and tore at each other’s clothes. It was hot and rough and a little bit violent, as if we were furious we hadn’t been able to keep our hands to ourselves and wanted to take it out on one another’s bodies. We pushed and pulled and growled and grasped. We called each other names and cursed viciously. We knocked over a lamp and ripped Oliver’s shirt.

When we finally exploded together, Oliver had me up against the door, and if our yelling didn’t wake the entire floor, then the pounding must have. I’d have bruises for days.

Afterward, we collapsed on the bed, naked and sweaty and exhausted.

“Oh my God,” I said. “I can’t believe we did that.”

“I know. Me either.”

“I think I pulled a muscle.”

“I think you bit me. Am I bleeding?”

I laughed. “No, but I hope you’re not seeing anyone. If you are, she’s going to wonder about all those scratches on your back.”

“I’m not seeing anyone.” He paused. “Are you?”

“No.”

Neither of us moved for several minutes. When I caught myself falling asleep, I sat up. “I should go.”

“Why? Just stay here.”

I looked down at him. “You want me to stay?” “Yeah.” He opened his eyes. In the low light, they almost looked black instead of blue. “Spend the night with me.”

I waited for it—the dirty joke, the excuse, the subtle dig—the reason he’d toss out for asking me to stay. It couldn’t just be that he wanted me here.

But he didn’t say anything more. He just reached out and covered my hand with his.

I looked at our hands for a moment, and a thousand memories came rushing back. Some good, some bad, but all us. I felt close to him, and I didn’t want to leave. “Okay. I’ll stay.”

“Good.” He took off his watch and put it on the nightstand.

Blurb
I asked for his criteria for bed buddies–that's the PG version.

He swore at me and said he didn’t do groupies. And just like that, our friendship was off to a great start.

Reese Forster was the starting point guard for the Seattle Thunder.
Gorgeous. Cocky. Loved by the nation.
He’s also attending preseason basketball training camp where I used to work.

Correction: where I work again, because I was fired from my last job.
And dumped.
And I might have a tiny bit of baggage, but that’s normal. Right?

Reese and I shouldn’t have become friends. We shouldn’t have become roommates.
And we really shouldn’t have started sleeping together … (Except we did.)

I’m adorably psychotic. He’s in the NBA. This is not a disaster waiting to happen, at all. Teardrop Shot is a 107k standalone with brand new characters.

Coming off two almost back to back top reads of the year I knew my next read had a fair bit to live up to. After having read this blurb I figured this book would be the ideal funny light-hearted story to break the ice.

I really need to learn to just put books down without finishing them when they aren't working for me. Because by 20% I knew this wasn't the book for me but I still had to see it through for some stupid reason only the depths of my brain knows.

So the book wasn't bad it just wasn't the type of comedy I prefer. There were moments that made me laugh but the book felt like it was trying to be smart and teach me a lesson and I am not a fan of that.

Also as characters Will and Mal annoyed me endlessly. Seriously the ten year reunion scene had me wanting to smack them both in the head. And the secondary characters were just as bad. Sometimes I wasn't sure if they were actually  friends or just people stuck in close proximity to each other. And the nicknames just no.

Who's parents gate crash their date, make comments about their daughters virginity to the date? But then what kind of jerk just leaves in the middle of the date because of the parents after she has told you how sensitive she is after her horrific dating experience? I guess the family and partner of a girl who didn't call a single one of them out on it and went on a second date without wanting an explanation of his behavior.

So yeah i should have put it down. Instead I pushed through and now I am complaining so I guess I am right up there with Mal. Sorry guys.





Title: The Difference
Author: Kaylee Ryan
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: May 20, 2019
 



Blurb

I’ve kissed a lot of frogs, just to be covered in warts.  I’ve been lied to, cheated on, and used more times than I can count.  I don’t have it in me to keep going.  I need a break from it all.  I need time for the wounds to heal, and the scars to fade. 

Wouldn’t you know it’s my luck, to meet a gorgeous man, after declaring my self-imposed break? He’s charming, sexy, and determined to change my mind.


I wasn’t looking for her, but when I overheard her conversation, I had to add my two cents. Within minutes of talking to her, I knew she was unlike anyone I’d ever met.  Bruised from past relationships, she’s built a fort around her heart. Doesn’t she know the prince always rescues the princess?

I think about her all the time.  The more I’m around her, the more I want to be.  I’ve made my choice.  It’s her. Now, all I have to do is prove to her that I’m the difference.

The Difference was a big huge bag of warm fuzzies and it actually was the perfect solution to my book slump. And the ideal lazy mothers day read. Even if I did still manage to find a few things to whinge about I knew it was mostly me just being a miserable bitch.

Kaylee is one of those authors that I kind of forget I love until I see her name pop up then I have a oh yeah moment and get super excited. So basically she turns me into a Labrador. 

First off this book was two romances in one. We got the story of Addy and Luke as the main characters but we also got the side story of their besties which was super sweet and less drama than Addy.

Don't get me wrong I liked Addy but she was a bit of a drama queen who saw a catastrophe in every rain cloud. And I know she has been through her share of losers but she just went on and on about it and jumped to stupid conclusions about things.

Luke however was the perfect hero of the story and if I was him I would have run for the hills. But he didn't obviously and he was so caring and understanding and just flat out perfect I kinda was waiting for the other shoe to drop.

But having this written from both points of view made me love him more and understand Addy's fears a little bit. And I really did enjoy watching  the side relationship unfold and I would have loved to get a little more of Luke's sister and nephew but maybe they will get their own book later. Please?

Anyway this was a solid 4 star read and I can't wait to see what Kaylee is going to write next.
