New Release ~ 3.5 Stars for Advanced Physical Chemistry


Title: Advanced Physical Chemistry: 
A Romantic Comedy
Series: Chemistry Lessons #3
Author: Susannah Nix
Genre: Romantic Comedy
 Release Date: March 16, 2018
After four
lousy boyfriends in a row, chemical engineer Penny Popplestone swears off men
until she can figure out why they keep cheating on her. But her no-men
resolution hits a snag when the mysterious and superhumanly hot barista at her
favorite coffee shop strikes up a friendship with her.
Penny strives to keep things platonic, but when Caleb gives her the kiss of her
life, she realizes he wants to be more than just friends. Tired of always being
“good little Penny,” she throws caution to the wind and pursues a no-strings
fling with the hottie barista. It’s not like they have anything in common
beyond scorching physical chemistry, so what does she have to lose?

Only her heart.

Now, this fanfic-reading, plus-size heroine faces an unsolvable problem. What
do you do when being apart is unbearable…but being together is impossible?

Advanced Physical Chemistry is the
third in a series of standalone rom-coms featuring geeky heroines who work in
STEM fields.

My Review

3.5 Stars!

A fun, very sweet, friends-to-friends-with-benefits romance with a quirky heroine and a swoonworthy hero.

Penny has been described by a lot of other reviewers as nerdy or geeky. I didn’t read her that way. I read her as quirky, sure; but just because she was in a STEM field, I didn’t automatically assume she was a geek. However, in the beginning, she was definitely awkward, but then again, aren’t we all some times? Caleb was the hunky barista. His development was less than Penny’s, but his character didn’t really need it. The book is a romance, but it is also more. It is Penny’s awakening or transition, if you will, to self-awareness and self-sufficiency when it comes to her relationships. Of course, when you pose a no strings attached relationship, there is bound to be trouble.

All in all, I enjoyed the book and will read more from Nix.

“Can we
talk?” Penny tilted her head toward the back. “Privately.” Was it her
imagination, or did Caleb’s eyes widen momentarily in fear?
He wiped
his hands on a dishtowel and nodded. “Sure.”
She trailed
after him down the back hallway, past the restrooms. He halted in front of the
office door and turned around to face her. It was quieter back here. The voices
of the businessmen had faded to a dull murmur, blending with the white noise
hum of the refrigerator case at the end of the hall.
Neither of
them spoke. They were standing close enough that she could see the gold in his
eyes. As they stared at one another, the memory of the kiss floated in the air
between them. Their fevered breaths. The way he’d moaned into her mouth. Penny
licked her lips.

an apology,” Caleb said.
The words
punctured her thin bubble of hope. “I see.”

“Why not?”
she heard herself say a little too loudly.
He flinched
at the challenge in her tone. “What?”
shouldn’t you have kissed me?”
The bell on
the front door jangled, and there was a murmur of voices as more customers came
in. Malik was out front. He could handle them.
shuffled his feet like he was itching to escape. “Um…”
“Do you
have a girlfriend?” Penny asked.
He shook
his head at the floor. “No, nothing like that.”
She rested
her hands on her hips. “Did you not mean to do it? Am I supposed to believe it
was some sort of accident? That you tripped and fell onto my face?”
“No, of
course not, I—”
I’m trying to understand why you’d do something like that and then run off and
leave me standing there. And why you’re apologizing now for kissing me instead
of for running off.”
“I’m sorry
for that part too,” he said quietly.
“It wasn’t
very nice.”
right, it wasn’t. I’m sorry.” God, he was beautiful when he was being contrite.
It made it impossible to think straight.
stared at his collarbone, which was also stupidly attractive, but not quite as
distracting as his face. “So why did you do it?”
“Run off?
Or kiss you?”
Either. Why are you being so weird about all of it?”
“Um.” He
shifted his weight, lowering his eyes to the floor. If she hadn’t been standing
between him and escape, he might have actually bolted like a horse.
She crossed
her arms. “Did you not want to kiss me?”
“No, I…” He
trailed off, rubbing his palms on his thighs.

looked into hers. “You heard me.”
burned in her chest, constricting her voice to a whisper. “But you don’t even
like me.”
“That’s not
true.” He looked pained.
How long
was a long time? Since last summer when he’d started working here? Did that
mean—could she have been dating Caleb instead of Kenneth? She tried to
picture it. Caleb asking her on a date, taking her out to dinner. Smiling
across the table as he tried to charm her, hoping for a goodnight kiss at the
end of the evening. She couldn’t even picture the smiling part, much less the
rest of it.
She tried
to clear her throat and made a choking sound instead. “You acted like
you didn’t like me.”
“I was

given her even the slightest hint he was actually interested in her, she would
have dropped Kenneth like the flaming bag of dog poop he’d turned out to be.

afraid you’d hate me if I was the one to tell you.”
Literally, it was impossible to believe this man who’d barely acknowledged her
existence had actually been attracted to her all this time. It was

And yet…he had

Read an excerpt from GLAM SQUAD & GROOMSMEN

It was one thing to fantasize about touching Spencer.

It was quite another to actually be doing it.

I love my job.

“How does the jacket feel?” she forced herself to ask as she continued to smooth imaginary wrinkles. “Is it too tight? Too loose? Can you move comfortably?”

Spencer’s expression was serious as he took in his reflection. Stepping back, she let him move his arms and shoulders to get the feel of the suit jacket. It looked good on him. Really good on him. But then again, Penny had a feeling that anything would look good on him. He was tall and lean, she noticed, with just the right amount of muscle – he’d filled out in all the best ways in the last ten years. And as much as she hated to admit it, he was just…

Perfect, she inwardly sighed.

“It feels all right,” he said, his voice deep and just a little gruff. “Can we try the next size up? I think it’s just a little snug in the shoulders.”

“No problem,” she replied softly as she went to pull another jacket from the rack. After taking all of his measurements – neck, sleeve, waist, outseam, and shoulders – she had been fairly confident that she picked the right size for him. But if he wasn’t one-hundred percent comfortable, who was she to argue?

Stepping over to him, she helped him remove the jacket he had on before handing him the new one. He was mesmerizing to watch. Some guys could come in and try on jackets and it would register zero on her radar, but watching Spencer Buchanan try on a jacket was borderline porn for her right now.

Quickly, she turned away, hung up the jacket and placed it to the side in case he wanted it back for comparison. She seriously needed to compose herself before going any further. If she could, she would have stepped outside to fan herself or grab something cold to drink because it suddenly felt very warm in the shop.

Pull yourself together!

Stepping back up on the platform with him, she began her tasks of smoothing and gently tugging and adjusting and helping him get the true feel of the garment. She wanted to smack herself because she knew she was being a little excessive in the touching department but…she couldn’t seem to help herself.

“How about this one?” she asked, smiling at him in the mirror and hoping he didn’t hear the slight tremor in her voice. “Is this one more comfortable?”

“This one definitely feels more comfortable,” he said, interrupting her thoughts. “I’m not crazy about these trousers, though.”

Her heart kicked a little and she felt a slight flutter in her belly at those words. It was one thing to be able to touch his back, his arms, his shoulders…but to be kneeling down and running her hands over his legs and waist? Well…it had been a little awkward when she was measuring him a few minutes ago and she wasn’t sure she’d survive it a second time.

Clearing her throat, she forced herself to focus. “All of your measurements will go to our warehouse and everything will be custom-tailored for you. The inventory we have here is just the basics, so they won’t necessarily fit you like this.”

He nodded but didn’t really look at her; he was still studying his reflection. “I think the measurements on the outseam weren’t quite right. I’d like to try a pair of different shoes and then measure again if that’s all right with you.”

Um…yes please, she thought and immediately wanted to smack herself. Honestly, she had no idea if any of this was the norm for getting a tuxedo fitting – she’d never had to do quite so much before, but right now she couldn’t find the will to stop any of it.

“No problem,” Penny replied. “Would you like to go pick out another pair?”

For a few minutes, Spencer walked around and tried on shoes while Penny made notes in his file. When he stepped back onto the platform, she was ready with her measuring tape. Standing to his left, she carefully kneeled – not an easy feat in her navy pencil skirt and heels. Doing her best to stay balanced, she carefully measured the outseam with minimal amounts of running her hand along his muscled calf. Standing slowly, she went and did the same on the right.

This time when she went to stand, Spencer stopped her.

“Isn’t it customary to measure the inseam as well?”

Oh. Right. The inseam.

“Um…yes. Yes. You’re right. Sorry about that,” she nervously stammered. “I’m not fully familiar with all the procedures.” With a steadying breath, she moved until she was in front of him. “Can you…um…just widen your stance a little?”

His gaze was a little intense as he looked down at her. Doing as she requested, he asked, “Like this?”

Was it wrong that she could barely remember how to speak because she was eye level with…well…what was a rather impressive part of him?

“That’s fine,” she murmured and did her best to hold the tape measure at the top of his inseam as she ran her other hand down his leg. By the time she got that measurement and did his other leg, she was practically sweating.

Mentally, she was about to congratulate herself on doing the job without embarrassing herself, but as she went to straighten, she lost her balance and cried out as she felt herself about to fall. “Oh!”

Spencer quickly swooped down and banded an arm around her waist to catch her and pulled her to her feet. Chest to chest, her heart racing, Penny looked up at him and knew she was blushing.

“You okay?” he asked, a small smile tugging at his lips.

She couldn’t speak. Up close, he was even more handsome than she wanted to admit. His jaw was rough with a day’s worth of stubble. His lips looked incredibly soft, and when she looked into his eyes, she noticed just a hint of gold in those clear blue depths. Swallowing hard, she nodded.

But he didn’t release her right away. And Penny certainly didn’t feel any rush to move.

It was kind of the perfect moment, she thought. She had no idea what was going on outside, but inside, it was just the two of them and she felt like her heart was beating just a little too hard. Hopefully Spencer would think she was just nervous from almost falling and not from having her hands all over his inseam!

One minute passed, then two – at least that’s what it felt like – when she finally took a step back. His grip didn’t release easily and it was a thrill to think that he was as reluctant to let her go as she was to move away. “Um…thanks,” she said softly, before walking over to the desk to mark down his measurements. “So…I think that’s everything. I have all of your measurements noted and on file. Martin will have them here for you whenever Brett comes in with the rest of the groomsmen.”

Her voice was slightly high-pitched and shaky but…dammit, he made her nervous. Normally, Penny was extremely confident – especially at her job. And yet the last thirty minutes with Spencer had reduced her to a quivering mass of hormones!


There. She said it. She was nervous being around him and beyond turned on.

New Release ~ 5 Stars for Switch Hitter by Sara Ney!



I knew something was wrong the second she walked in the door tonight; I just couldn’t put my finger on what it was.

Same hair color.

Same legs.

Same face.

Except…I look harder.

At the small dimple beneath her lip that wasn’t there the last time we went out. And her laugh—that laugh isn’t as loud.

This isn’t the girl I’ve gone out with the past few weeks.

It’s her twin sister, and they’ve switched places on me.

Only I’m not quite ready to let them switch back.


My Review

5 Stars!

Switch Hitter is a quick, fun read from Sara Ney. It was previously part of an anthology, but not it is available to everyone and you’re going to love it!

Lucy and Amelia are identical twins, but that is where their similarities end. Lucy schedules two dates for the same night, so instead of coming clean to one of the dates, she asks Amelia to go in her place. Dante “Dash” Amado is sexy as hell and not as dumb as Lucy thinks.

This was a fast read at novella length. It is also a brief introduction to characters you will see in Ney’s upcoming new series. The plot was fun. Ney’s great, easy-to-read writing style shone through. Amelia and Dante, and even Lucy were great! Despite being a quick read, there was plenty of character and plot development.

I loved it and I know you will, too!

Darby Culhane is the new farmer in Whynot, North Carolina, and she’s proving to be quite the forbidden temptation for Colt.

As pretty as she is sweet, Colt can’t help but be drawn to Darby’s…peaches. No really, she’s a peach farmer. Get that mind out of the gutter, and get on down to the farm to see what happens when circumstances force Colt and Darby to team up. They may just find that the peach trees aren’t the only things in bloom.

My Review

4.5 Stars!

Everything about this series is sweet as pie! I love the Mancinkus clan. Three of the Mancinkus siblings have gotten their happy endings and in Pretty As a Peach it is Colt’s turn to find love.

Darby’s route to WhyNot is a little twisty. She is in the midst of a divorce from her jerky husband. She moves herself and her daughter to WhyNot to become operations manager of Farrington Farms. The move is two-fold. She can get away from her ex and finish her thesis at the same time. As part of her thesis, she has applied for a grant, the same grant that Colt has applied for in his efforts to save Mainer Farms, his family’s farm. The two start off at odds, but neither can deny the spark of attraction.

I really enjoyed this book. It was sweet and emotional without being over done. Colt and Darby at great. Colt is passionate and down to Earth, sweet and sexy. Darby is kind, loyal, sweet and a dedicated mother. The backdrop of WhyNot and it’s residents is a character in and of itself. It doesn’t take long for the residents of WhyNot to accept Darby into their fold and meddle (not in a bad way). Throw in Linne, Darby’s daughter, who isn’t featured heavily, but does play a part in the plot and you have a great love story.

Blog Tour ~ 4.5 Stars for Two Wedding Crashers by Meghan Quinn!



I don’t know what love is anymore.

Well, that’s not entirely true, but I’m going to tell you a little secret: I’ve lost the spark.

You know the kind of spark I’m talking about?

Where butterflies take flight in your stomach from two hands innocently colliding. Or catching your breath when you first meet someone attractive. Yeah, that spark.

Except I haven’t felt that feeling in forever; there is nothing left inside of me.

Normally, this wouldn’t be a problem–but I’m a writer on a serious deadline, and my editor is breathing down my neck for a romantic, Nicholas Sparks type love story. No pressure, right?

That’s how I find myself flying across the country to crash a wedding in the name of research, dress and heels stuffed into my small suitcase.

It should be the easiest book research ever. Drinking some free champagne, basking in the love of two strangers, and tapping into my romantic side. That will be a breeze. I’m a pro. I can handle this.

Until I mistakenly end up in the wrong hotel room, naked as the day I was born, with the sexiest human I have ever met staring me down, wondering what I’m doing taking a shower in his bathroom. I don’t think calling it research will get me out of this pickle.


4.5 Stars!

You know, Meghan Quinn is a favorite of mine. I actually discovered her books on accident a few years ago when I won a giveaway. She sent me a signed copy of Repentance and the signature on the inside said “Love and Boobs, Meghan Quinn.” I remember laughing and thinking, “This chick just gets me.” I read Repentance in one sitting and, BOOM, I was addicted. Over the last two years, I have read nearly all of her books. I was right. She just gets me and we don’t even know each other. lol!

Anywho, fun story over.

Two Wedding Crashers… this one is up there in my top three favorite Meghan Quinn books (I’m not sure anything will top Dear Life for me.). I found TWC to be a refreshing change. Our heroine is in a rut, has lost her spark, has drifted from her center. She’s empty. She goes on this kind of crazy trip to find her mojo and she finds said mojo and more… a hot, hunky more. Hello, Spark. Nice to see you again! Spark has a name and it is Beck. Remember Beck? From Three Blind Dates? No? WTH? Put that one on your TBR, too. I liked Beck in Three Blind Dates. I LOVE Beck in TWC. Seriously, he is sexy, sweet, kind, spontaneous… pretty close to perfect. Beck and Rylee’s story is sizzling hot and full of feels, the good tingly kind.

Dear Meghan Quinn, thank you! Thank you for this book!


Chills scream their way down my arms and legs, my nipples pucker, and just like that, with one word, all humor vanishes from our little conversation and awareness of this all-consuming man wrapped around me hits me hard.

Gathering myself, I say, “Tell me something Chris and Justine know about you.”

“Hmm.” His thumbs hook under the waistband of my shorts, playing with the lower part of my hipbones. His touch spurs on my pelvis, needing to rock, begging for him to go lower. My toes curl in my sandals and my back slightly arches, reaching for more. “Something they know about me.”

His mouth doesn’t stray from its position against my ear, and his hips start to slowly move underneath me, his legs tangling with mine. Involuntarily, one of my hands hooks the back of his neck as I hold on tightly to him, feeling like I need support from the onslaught of sensation I’m feeling.

I hear him say something, but it doesn’t register in my brain, which has turned to mush as his thumbs stray from my hipbones to right above my pubic bone.

There is no denying how turned on I am, how wet I am from his mere touch, how much—despite my reservations—I want this man.

With each stroke, my head turns farther and farther to the side until our noses are touching, Beck’s head bends forward to meet me halfway. My eyes flutter shut for a brief moment before I open them and am captured by those flecks of green and gold.

The air stills around us, our breath mixing, swirling between us, our lips so close.

One swipe of this thumb.

Another one.

I can’t breathe.

I can’t focus.

Another swipe, my head leans even closer, my tongue wetting my lips.

One more swipe . . .

My heart hammers in my chest, my skin prickling with awareness.

Beck brings his mouth even closer, only a whisper away now, and he waits.

Holding still.

His breathing feeling erratic beneath me.




And I’m gone.

I bring my mouth to his, slowly parting my lips ever so slightly, just enough to maneuver my mouth across his.

A low, provocative moan escapes Beck as one of his hands snags the back of my head and holds me in place, almost as if he lets go, I’ll disappear.

Needing more, I shift on his lap so I’m straddling him once again, my hands on his bare chest, feeling the powerful sinew that holds him together.

Our lips press and mold, mingling, taking, begging . . .


Beck’s tongue runs against my bottom lip, eliciting a moan from deep within me, lighting a fire so hot, so wild, my hands start to travel up his neck to his cheeks where I grip him, positioning his head so when I open my mouth, I can expertly dive my tongue onto his.

He groans, his lap shifting against mine now, his hard-on pressing against my wet and throbbing center. I match his rocking, using my position on his lap to take advantage of his length I can feel through his board shorts.

This is exactly what I didn’t want to happen, but God, am I happy it has. Maybe I really should live in the moment, maybe I should take advantage of the opportunity, maybe I should…

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

THE VINTNER’S VIXEN by Rebecca Norinne & Jamaila Brinkley


Welcome to River Hill, where the only thing more intoxicating than the wine is the man who makes it.

With movie roles for “curvy best friend” drying up fast, actress Angelica Travis is happy to be leaving Hollywood behind for a project she’s truly passionate about: renovating an historic bed and breakfast in peaceful wine country. She’s got plans and power tools ready, but an inconvenient attraction to her obnoxious new neighbor is NOT on the agenda.

Winemaker Noah Bradstone wants nothing more than to cultivate his grapes and win awards for his wine. But when construction on the B&B next door threatens his vines, Noah goes on a rampage – and comes up hard against the sexiest starlet he’s ever seen. Exactly the sort of woman he’s vowed never to get involved with again.

Angelica and Noah might be able to resolve their differences over a glass of some very fine wine, but when her opportunity at breakout stardom comes calling, all bets are off.

Love isn’t always about timing.
Sometimes you have to throw caution to the wind and roll with it.

I admit I wasn’t ready.

Sweet Little Thing - About the Book

Sweet Little Thing IBOOKS The day her mother passed away, Beulah was left with one name. That was it. No other explanation.

Portia Van Allan was not someone Beulah could believe her mother had a friendship with. Wealthy, self-absorbed and other than the fact Portia was supplying special care for Beulah’s sister, Portia was cruel.

The day Portia’s son returns home for the summer, Beulah soon finds that Portia isn’t in charge. This isn’t her home at all. Her late husband left her with nothing. It was all left to their son who doesn’t seem to like his mother at all.

Jasper Van Allan doesn’t know why his mother has hired a young gorgeous blonde to take care of the house and he is almost ready to let her go when he finds out just why she’s working for his mother.

Realizing Beulah is more than a stunning face he gives her a chance then soon offers her a job at his office just to be near her all the time. It’s all falling into place. Making sense… when the real lies, the dark secrets, and the skeletons come tumbling out of the Van Allan closet. Twisted truths that will make Jasper loving Beulah impossible. And send her running…

Sweet Little Thing - About the Author

Abbi Glines is a #1 New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of the Rosemary Beach, Sea Breeze, Vincent Boys, Field Party and Existence series. She never cooks unless baking during the Christmas holiday counts. She believes in ghosts and has a habit of asking people if their house is haunted before she goes in it. She drinks afternoon tea because she wants to be British but alas she was born in Alabama. When asked how many books she has written she has to stop and count on her fingers. When she’s not locked away writing, she is reading, shopping (major shoe and purse addiction), sneaking off to the movies alone, and listening to the drama in her teenagers lives while making mental notes on the good stuff to use later. Don’t judge.

You can connect with Abbi online in several different ways. She uses social media to procrastinate.

New Release ~ 4 Stars for Tic Tac Love by A. M. Willard!

Release Date: March 14, 2018

Cover Design: MadHat Books




For as long as I can remember, I’ve been in love with Paxton West. I’ve planned our wedding in my head a million times. What our babies would look like. How we would grow old together and still play our favorite game— Tic-Tac-Toe.

However, we have one problem.

Paxton doesn’t believe in true love, soul mates, or happily ever after. Oh, did I also tell you he doesn’t want kids? It also means I can’t explain to him that he’s the only guy for me, or about my—our—current situation.

The past started with a game of X’s and O’s.
Then came the miles and miles that kept us apart.
Next came tequila shots… They’re never a great idea.

Now, more than ever, the future scares the crap out of me. If my plan backfires, I could not only lose my best friend but the love of my life.

Dang those tequila shots.



My Review

4 Stars!

What a great friends to lovers rom com! Belle and Pax are great. As kids, they were friends who secretly loved each other, but neither would admit it. Fast forward many years and everything changes. This is such a fun read. Belle and Pax have great banter and you can feel how deep their friendship and love for each other runs. Throw in a few misunderstandings and BOOM you have this perfect, weekend read!

About the Author


Bestselling Author, A.M. Willard resides in Savannah, Georgia. She joined the Peach State many years ago after leaving the crystal blue waters and sugary white sand behind from the Panhandle of Florida. She’s also known for being a wife, mother, and caretaker for her farm animals. A.M. loves anything sassy, glittery, and is a sucker for the Hallmark Channel. That last one might be the reason she believes in soulmates or it could be because she married her high school sweetheart for twenty years ago.

After releasing her first novella series back in 2014, A.M. set out on a new goal to bring her readers a broad range of romantic stories from her desk. This includes Romantic Comedy, Contemporary Romance, and from time to time some Sexy Romance.

A.M. is an active member of RWA (Romance Writers of America).
