Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs

From Wall Street Journal bestselling author Giana Darling comes an age gap, second chance love story about a rebel soul and her best friend's dad who wants absolutely nothing to do with her...
I fell in love with my best friend's dad when I was seventeen.
He seemed like some kind of heathen god, big enough to kill a man with his bare hands, tattooed with bright, bold images, and weathered by time and a short stint in prison.
Blind to the consequences, I made a mistake that ran him out of town and ruined his life.
Now, he's back after all these years--hating me more than the day he left.
What he doesn't know is that I've been working to atone for my sins.
I've infiltrated the Vancouver Triad that killed his wife.
Always my protector, he decides it's not safe for me to be in this alone, so he resolves to get me out of the Triad and out of his hair for good.

This is my favorite Elsie Silver book to date. Age gap romance, brother’s best friend, enemies to lovers. I am always here for these troupes! And I loved being back at Ruby Creek!
As soon as I finished ‘The Front Runner’, I hoped we would get a Nadia book. Nadia is Stefan Dalca’s younger sister and I was intrigued by her. Nadia has been through so much, but she overcame that and had so much growth. Griffin is the grumpiest of heroes and that is my favorite! I loved seeing him overcome his own past and obstacles and be the man Nadia needed.
Nadia and Griffin’s path wasn’t always easy but there was so much worth fighting for. Though they were an unlikely couple, they were perfect for one another.
You’re the happiest accident I’ve ever known. The very best decision I’ve ever made. My reason.

“I think I kind of love it when you hate me.”
Enemies to lovers, college sports romance, brother’s best friend, forced proximity… these are a few of my favorite troupes! Put them all together and you get an epic romance book from Kandi Steiner!
Zeke and Riley have known each other since they were kids. Zeke and Riley’s brother Gavin have always been best friends, and Riley used to be friends with Zeke too. Until high school when an accident Zeke and Gavin were in changed Riley’s feelings about him. She went from liking him to hating him. And playing on the same high school team didn’t bring them closer together.
Zeke, Riley, and Gavin all go to the same college their freshman year and Riley and Zeke get a little closer than Riley wants. Riley is a kicker for their college football team and the only woman on the team. I loved this aspect of the book. I think it’s so awesome that Kandi put a female kicker on the team and I love how it shaped Riley and Zeke’s relationship.
They’re teammates, roommates, but they’re still not friends. At least, not at first. With time, Riley starts to remember all the things she used to love about Zeke. And as their friendship eventually grows, so does the other feelings they’re having. I truly felt for Zeke. He has been through so much, some of it Riley had no clue about, and he was a great man and a great hero.
Riley was so awesome. I loved how badass she was. These two had undeniable chemistry and the best back and forth banter. I had so much fun reading this book, but it also had a fair amount of angst and emotion. Also, shout out to Gavin because he was just amazing. I see Kandi is continuing this series and I hope he eventually gets a book!

What I meant to do in Vegas: Let my hair down for once and celebrate winning a medal at my first women’s hockey all-stars competition.
What I actually did: Got senior prom drunk and woke up married to Brooklyn’s star winger, the great Neil Drake.
He’s the heir to a billion dollars, and I barely survived my childhood. Our friendship is based strictly only on hockey, takeout food, and smack talk.
And now holy matrimony. Although we both know it can’t last, especially once his evil family gets wind of our Vegas shenanigans…
Contains: Meddling teammates, meddling parents, ugly jewelry, and a pretend-kiss that nearly sets the world on fire.

Drake and Charli couldn't be more different on paper. He's the heir to literally billions of dollars and she played hockey on a scholarship before she made it to the big leagues. But even still, they click. They like each other. This is very much a friends to lovers story.
Charli is a little freaked when she wakes up married but Drake has reasons, family reasons, to stay married for a while. It was fun watching to see what they would do about the whole situation. Drake was the perfect hero. I completely adored him. Charli I really liked too. There were moments I was frustrated with her, but once I knew more about her story I could understand all the choices she made.
Shenanigans was a fun sports romance but it was so much more than that. It had a lot of emotion and depth as well. The audiobook was fantastic and I can't wait to read more in this series!
