Between Hello & Goodbye by Emma Scott REVIEW+NEW RELEASE!

From USA Today and Wall St. Journal bestselling author comes a brand-new contemporary romance—an angsty, emotional love story between a grumpy firefighter who thinks he has his life figured out and a beautiful ad exec whose life is anything but.

Between Hello and Goodbye by Emma Scott is now live!

She's a city girl in Seattle. He's a firefighter in a rainforest. This is never going to work...

Faith Benson isn't your emergency contact, she's the party-girl friend you call for a good time. The gal-pal who loves mimosas at brunch and martinis at Happy Hour. But her carefree lifestyle threatens her job at a top Seattle ad agency. There's no one better at landing big accounts (when she shows up) but her boss demands she take a leave of absence to get her head on straight.

Faith heads to the remote Hawaiian island of Kauai, far away from the vices that get her in trouble. A twisted ankle on Day One requires rescuing by a man who is vice personified--a gorgeous firefighter who awakens feelings in her heart she never knew existed.

Asher Mackey doesn't get involved with beautiful tourists beyond taking them to bed and then watching them leave his tiny island. He's devoted his life to the safety and care of everyone around him...except himself. Until he meets Faith Benson, the city girl whose vibrant, inner beauty shines a light on the dark corners of his life, showing him how safe—but empty—it truly is.

Despite their best efforts to keep their distance, Faith and Asher fall hard and fast, but there's an ocean between them. Both are building their lives on opposite sides of the Pacific while their feelings for each other grow more profound and undeniable by the day.

Something has to give.

When Asher receives devastating news, he and Faith have to decide once and for all to entrust their hearts fully to the other or return to their safe—but separate—worlds. Because neither can endure much longer, living somewhere between hello and goodbye.

Between Hello and Goodbye is a contemporary romance about love, loss, and experiencing life in all its facets. It deals with sensitive topics that may be triggering for some readers.

“Aloha means to hear what is not said, to see what cannot be seen, to know the unknowable.”

Emma Scott is one of my top favorite authors and books like this remind me why. Between Hello and Goodbye is beautiful, romantic and profound. The scenery was stunning and made me wish I was there in Kauai with Asher and Faith. Scott is the ultimate storyteller and really brought her ‘A game’ with this book.

Faith Benson is a character we know and love from ‘Someday Someday’ (if you haven’t read it, that’s okay- this can be read as a complete stand-alone) but she’s a bit of a wild child. She works when she wants, comes and goes as she pleases, and loves to party, shop, and lives her life the way she wants. Until she decides she needs a change. And that change takes her on a trip to Hawaii.

Asher Mackey followed his younger brother to Hawaii years ago and is a firefighter on the island. Asher and Faith’s meet cute is the absolute best. I loved seeing them meet and start to slowly fall for one another. Being on this island changes Faith. It opens her eyes to other things and makes her see her life differently. It also changes Asher and things he thought, and things he thought he wanted.
“Are we in trouble, firefighter?” I understood her meaning. Because I could read her, and she could read me, and neither one of us wanted to do much else besides figure each other out. “Not yet,” I said quietly. “But we’re getting there.”

Asher was my favorite kind of grumpy hero. He had a heart of gold and I completely and utterly adored him and his family. Then there was Faith. Faith had so much growth in this book. I love seeing a character change like this in a book. There were so many amazing secondary characters as well.

Between Hello and Goodbye is such an epic read. This one had some lighter moments, a lot of character growth, and touched a good bit on grief and loss, which was handled with raw honesty and grace. Emma’s writing once again blew me away. I already know this one will be on my top favorites of 2022 list!
"To survive and thrive and to know that our capacity to love doesn't diminish with loss. The single candle can light a thousand more, and we can find our way out of the darkness.”

LIVE + REVIEW: Flawless by Elsie Silver


✨ It's Release Day - Flawless by Elsie Silver is NOW LIVE! ✨

Fall for the man who has no trouble staying on the bull but took a mighty tumble from his golden boy pedestal - Only one woman (and one bed 😉) can shine up his tarnished image.

"The banter in this book was... chef's kiss perfect." - Goodreads reviewer

Available now! Read Flawless for FREE in Kindle unlimited. >>>

🔥 opposites attract
🔥 forced proximity
🔥 only one bed
🔥 who hurt you vibes
🔥 all. the. banter. (and spice! ��)
𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐫𝐮𝐥𝐞𝐬 𝐰𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐬𝐢𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐞. 𝐊𝐞𝐞𝐩 𝐦𝐲 𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐬 𝐨𝐟𝐟 𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐝𝐚𝐮𝐠𝐡𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐲 𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐛𝐥𝐞.
𝐁𝐮𝐭 𝐧𝐨𝐰 𝐈’𝐦 𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐜𝐤 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐡𝐞𝐫. 𝐓𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞’𝐬 𝐨𝐧𝐥𝐲 𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐛𝐞𝐝. 𝐀𝐧𝐝 𝐰𝐞𝐥𝐥, 𝐫𝐮𝐥𝐞𝐬 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐦𝐚𝐝𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐛𝐞 𝐛𝐫𝐨𝐤𝐞𝐧.
I’m the face of professional bull riding—the golden boy. Or at least I was, until it all blew up in my face. Now my agent says I have to clean up my image, so I’m stuck with his ball-busting daughter for the rest of the season as my “full-time supervision.”
But I don’t need a goddamn babysitter, especially one with skin-tight jeans, a sexy smirk, and a mouth she can’t stop running.
A mouth I can’t stop thinking about.
Because Summer isn’t just another conquest. She sees the man behind the mask, and she doesn’t run—she pulls me closer, even when she shouldn’t.
She says this means nothing.
I say this means everything.
She says there are boundaries we shouldn’t cross. That my reputation can’t take any more hits—and neither can her damaged heart.
I say I’m going to steal it anyway.
Christy's Review: 

"Tell me what you want, Summer... if this were your last moment on earth, what would you want me to do?"

Flawless is my new favorite Elsie Silver book! This is the first book in Silver's new 'Chestnut Springs' series and I'm here for all the potential books in this one! Especially if we get more of those Eaton boys!

Rhett Eaton is a bull rider who got in a bit of trouble with his sponsors. While his agent is trying to smooth things over, Rhett gets a... babysitter for the last few months of his tour. This babysitter happens to be Summer Hamilton, his agent's daughter. Summer is working at her dad's firm and is willing to do whatever it takes to prove herself. She's a bit of a people pleaser and definitely a relatable character.

The banter in this book was... chef's kiss perfect. And the chemistry between these two was insane. At first, you could tell Rhett didn't want Summer around. He thought he didn't need her or any help, but how wrong he was. And Summer needed someone like Rhett. Someone who had her back and was there for her no matter what.

I truly loved these two together. They had a spark from the moment they first met and they became combustible. Not only did I love them, but Summer's dad was amazing. I also loved Rhett's dad and his entire family. I want a Beau book, a Clay book, and a Jasper book! This was such a fantastic read and I'm looking forward to reading more from this world.

Blog Tour: DOCTOR LOVE by Leisa Rayven


Follow the algorithms or follow his heart?

Doctor Love, an all-new steamy, opposites attract standalone romance from International Bestselling author Leisa Rayven, is available now!

Toby Jenner may be tall, handsome, and own the world’s greatest collection of cardigans, but his track record with women is woeful. Even though he’s the tech genius behind the most successful matchmaking app of all time, it seems as though Doctor Love is able to predict everyone’s perfect partner except his own.

All that changes when a beautiful, intelligent, quirky-as-hell woman crashes into his life. Plagued by her own relationship woes, Joanna’s done with dating guys who aren’t right and pins her hopes on the Happy Ever After app turning her love life around.

Within hours of meeting her, Toby realizes he’s finally found the soul-deep connection he’s always craved. Even better, she seems to feel the same way.

There’s just one problem–according to his own state-of-the-art compatibility algorithm, they don’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell of working out.

Being a man of logic, Toby knows he should forget about her and move on. He knows he shouldn’t move into her plush Manhattan apartment so he can monitor the glitchy A. I. that runs/ruins her life. He knows he should be fine with her dating men whose compatibility scores aren’t in the single digits. And he should absolutely ignore how just being near her sets his entire world on fire.

Yes, Toby is very aware that falling for his perfectly imperfect match will lead to devastating heartbreak. But he also knows that if there’s even a one-percent chance of them making it, he’ll move heaven and earth to beat the odds.

A sizzling new standalone from the internationally bestselling author of Bad Romeo.

"You're perfect," I say.
"Not for you... for you, I'm perfectly wrong."

Doctor Love is the long awaited third book in Leisa Rayven's 'Masters of Love' series. I love Rayven's writing and I couldn't wait for Toby and Joanna's book.... even though they're all wrong for one another, this couple was so so right.

Toby Jenner has a lot on his plate right now. Between family and work, his plate is not just full, it's overflowing. He doesn't have time for a relationship, but that's okay. Since the only person he's been interested in in sometime just scored ridiculously low with him on his new HEA dating app. Joanna and Toby have insane chemistry, but the numbers just don't match. So they become friends.

Friends sort of kind of works, but Joanna is keeping a lot of secrets and it takes a lot for her to open up to anyone. Toby is just the guy to break through that wall she has up. Toby is the most incredible hero. He was so deserving of love and I'm so glad he found it, even if he didn't quite expect it. This book has a whole other storyline aside from the romance which I found fascinating.

Not only did I love Joanna and Toby, but Jeeves stole the show in every scene he was in. It was also great seeing characters from the first two books I know and love, though you can read this as a stand-alone. Doctor Love was such a feel good romance that pulled on my heartstrings and left me with a smile on my face!
When you're so in love with someone, you can't imagine living without them, everything changes.
