Every Kringle in Kringletown celebrated Christmas a lot.

But Cole Black on Whistler Lane, unfortunately, did not.

As his fellow citizens decorate their quaint town, brimming with carols and glad tidings, Cole wants nothing more than to hibernate the winter away. But his dreary plans are thwarted when his Christmas nemesis, Storee Taylor, moves in next door to care for her Aunt Cindy. Immediately, the new neighbor turns his life into a real nightmare before Christmas, especially when she decides to enter the town Christmas Kringle contest in honor of Cindy. And better yet, Storee is determined to win.

Over Cole’s dead body, she will. With help from his friend Max, Cole decides to enter the competition as well, to beat Storee at her own game by pretending that this hometown grump’s heart has grown three sizes this season and he’s fallen for the girl next door. And unfortunately for Storee, she has to follow his lead to have a chance at the Christmas Kringle title.

But the competition isn’t the only thing that heats up. Cole and Storee’s fake relationship becomes very real, and before they know it, they’re attempting to hide it from Aunt Cindy. Things get complicated, the competition gets tough, and all it takes is one single night for someone to steal it all…

Welcome to Pine Hollow: A Forbidden Romance Brimming with Scandal and Sarcasm

Just when I thought I’d escaped Pine Hollow’s gossip mill and its suffocating small-town charm, my best friend Bella called. Turns out, she needed help—serious help. As in, her husband Butch is now a permanent resident of Whispering Pines Cemetery, and let’s just say it wasn’t exactly natural causes.

Bella and I? We’ve always been partners in crime, but this was a new level of mischief. So, I packed up my Austin dreams and headed back to Pine Hollow, where every smile hides a secret, and every sweet tea is laced with irony.

I expected a tearful reunion, not a body and a hastily dug grave. And certainly not my stepbrother Calvin showing up, all infuriatingly handsome and ready to assist. Calvin, the original heartbreaker who had me fleeing town years ago because of feelings I couldn’t shake and the judgmental whispers that followed.

As Calvin and I navigate this fresh mess—both the literal dirt and the figurative skeletons in our closets—old sparks ignite. It’s hard to focus on staying out of jail when unresolved tension keeps pulling us together.

Every side-eye spells gossip and Butch’s father is out for blood. We’re balancing on the thinnest of ice. The town is watching, whispering, and waiting for the next scandal to unfold.

Dive into a steamy mix of forbidden romance, dark humor, and a mystery too tangled to ignore.

Because in Pine Hollow, secrets never stay buried. And as for Butch? Well, he had it coming.

Release Date: July 16




He’s commitment phobic. She believes in happy endings. The twist of fate that binds them is a surprise they never saw coming in a bittersweet romance about instant family—and not-so-instant love.

A decade-old animosity is the only thing Liam Davies and Zoe Valentine have in common. Until their mutual best friends pass away and they’re appointed co-guardians of the trusting couple’s precocious toddler, Mira.

Liam is committed only to professional football. Relationship-wise, he’s even better at defense. Still wrestling with a tough childhood, he’s not cut out to be a father. Why his late best buddy believed in him, Liam has no idea.

An optimistic romantic, Zoe has always dreamed of a fairy-tale life. But even though Liam’s biceps make her dizzy and she can’t stop thinking about his lips on hers, he’s not exactly Prince Charming. With or without that brooding Brit, she is determined to make good on her friends’ last wish.

Forced into a predicament they never expected, Zoe and Liam are discovering things about each other that could scorch through boundaries, warm hearts, and change minds. And best of all, with their shared love for a pint-size surprise like Mira, they might just turn a house into a home.

Ok so this book is just all the feels. I read the Best Laid Plans right before it and then I couldn't wait to get more of Liam. Except there's something to be said for going into a book knowing there's going to be heartbreak and tears. 


Because obviously this book is about Liam and Zoe’s best friends passing away and them getting custody of their daughter. Now from the last book my entire knowledge of Liam is that he's gruff and growly and protective of Mira. And that's kind of my kryptonite. 


Zoe on the other hand was a complete unknown and starting the book with her in the past gave me a great feel for her. Following that up with her with Mira made her a character I loved. Especially with her octogenarian book club giving her all kinds of advice. 


The story was so emotional but written so perfectly that I could feel what they were feeling and understand why they each were feeling that way. And I loved that they gave each other the grace to deal with their own feelings on this massive life change they had suddenly had thrust upon them. Liam was the absolute best book hero I've read in a while and the most real.


I personally would have loved an epilogue of a little further into the future. But I always want more. I'm not sure if we are getting more of this series in the future but I certainly hope so.


Title: Matteo
Series: Castillo Family #3
Author: Fiona Murphy
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Tropes: Plus Size/Curvy Woman, Interracial
Billionaire, Abusive Ex, Single Mom
Age Gap, Doctor/Patient
Release Date: July 13, 2024


Within weeks of my thirty-ninth birthday, I lost my thirty-ninth patient and all feeling. I was certain it would pass, only it continued into the next day and the weeks after.

In order to treat my patients, I needed to feel something. Without feeling, I couldn't stay. Not in oncology and not in Baltimore.

So, I'm back in Dallas after more than twenty years gone. Home, my mother keeps saying with happiness.

Happiness I still can't feel more than four months after that day. I'm beginning to accept feeling isn't coming back.

Until the moment I walk into an exam room and look into her eyes. All at once, feeling comes rushing back as suddenly as it disappeared.

She’s my patient. It’s all kinds of wrong to want her, no matter what television portrays. Add in the fact she’s running from an abusive husband. I should be staying far away from her, not taking her and her daughter home with me.

But I can’t walk away from her. They’re living in a crappy motel, barely surviving. I have a room, a safe place for her to recover and heal. She needs time and patience before she's strong enough for me to tell her the way I feel.

I'll give it to her. And hopefully, she'll grow strong enough to trust in me and fall in love with me the same way I've fallen for her and her baby daughter.

There’s one shadow over our growing happiness: the man who beat her badly enough to send her running. I’ll do whatever it takes to ensure he never gets close enough to Amy or her daughter to ever hurt them again. My money should be enough to get him to leave us alone, but if it’s not, I have no problem using any means necessary.

***Trigger warning for domestic violence on page. I apologize in advance to all those who’ve gone through abuse (I have as well, and it hurt like heck to write.). This will break your heart. But I promise it will be put back together by the end.

Another warning for my long-time readers. I’m sorry to say this is a slow burn. Nothing else made sense after all she’s been through. But I promise, it’s still a me story, and once we get there…it’s all there. All the yummy bad/goodness you expect to find in every story I write.







Due to commitment issues I have lived in many different cities and my favorite is Chicago but I have managed to settle into Austin and perhaps my commitment issues are behind me. 

I have enjoyed reading from a very young age and it wasn't long before the children books bored me and I read the books my mother enjoyed Stephen King and Dean Koontz and I didn't sleep without the light on until I was about ten. 

I came across my first Harlequin by accident and it was love at first read, no one died and happy endings? It was a whole new world and I loved it. 

I wrote my first story at eight and everyone died, of course. Since then I would like to think I've gotten better and now I'm writing the happily ever afters I first fell in love with, with some hot sex thrown in along the way. 

As a plus size woman myself, I have started writing the stories I always wanted to see myself in but never did. And now I’m ecstatic to give BBWs the happily ever afters with hot Alphas I want to read.



After a really terrible week in reality, all I wanted to do was escape into a good book. But picking one was a challenge all of its own. I kept switching back and forth between wanting something dark and angsty or something light and fluffy. I even pulled up a heap of options and a random number generator before I decided I needed something happy. And that always describes a Lauren Blakely novel.


First thing I want to say is I was expecting a laugh out loud room com with a heap of steam. I wasn't expecting all the feels. From the start I really connected with Trina and watching her figure herself out and overcome her own self-doubts was great. I loved her quirky, book obsessed self and seeing her get there was perfect.


Now the whole two guy thing. I didn't expect them to have such complex and understandable issues. They were so open and mature and communicated beautifully even when they were communicating their mistakes. And yes, the steam factor was through the roof.


I really enjoyed this book, and it was the perfect escape from reality. I don't know that I'm going to race out and read the next one but I'm definitely adding it to my TBR for those days I need something steamy and all consuming.



I always finish these books and feel like an idiot for putting off reading them and wanting to jump into the next one immediately. And then I one click the next one and get off tangent and take forever to pick it up and read it. Rinse and repeat. But I came to the Devney Perry party late and I started them and somehow ended up reading 3 different series and crossing over all the characters in my head.


I remember Sabrina showing up at the end of the last book. I know we got a fair lot of Beau previously, but I don't really remember much about him due to my terrible memory. But it honestly doesn't matter, these books are all beautiful slices of their own that don't really need to be read in order. Except for the timelines for the crossover characters. 


Beau and Sabrina were so different, I didn't know how they could work. But their instant connection couldn't have been written any better. Sabrina was so strong, and I seriously admired her and the way she dealt with everything. Even when I wanted to scream at her for the way she acted, I couldn't.


The story flowed so smoothly, and I enjoyed getting lost in it. And unsurprisingly I'm wanting to jump right into the next one. Although I also got a little tiny tease for a different series and there's a new one coming soon and some others, I still have on my kindle so I'll probably get there later.



As soon as I put down Offsides I went straight to KU to grab this and then I got distracted by a teaser for a dark romance that for some reason I couldn’t resist. So, after I fell down that little rabbit hole I was a little worried that this would be hard to pick up. But from the first page I was hooked. 


This absolutely could be read as a standalone, but I would highly recommend reading Offsides first just because it gives some good insight into the friend group. Plus, it reads just as well as this one; great writing, awesome characters, loads of all things college sports romance plus a little bit of extra spice.


Tyler was introduced in the previous book, but we didn’t get to know Sera until this one. And I immediately loved her. She was far from perfect and despite the fact I couldn’t personally relate to anything she was going through I loved her. Sera was so incredibly real and everything she was going through ensured there was never a moment I wasn’t wondering how it was going to play out and turning pages.


Tyler was book boyfriend goals and then some. Everything about him from their first anonymous meeting that we only hear about in retrospect was hot. He absolutely lived up to the Hades tag. And the drama that I was expecting from the Chase reveal, played out to beyond what I was expecting. I couldn’t have asked for more. And now I’m going to go spend hours on Goodreads trying to figure out what to read next.
