93FE55F3-B568-4691-B952-5D1F2DB1CD9DTitle: Saving Brad (The Kennedy Boys Book 5)
Author: Siobhan Davis
Publication Date: October 22, 2017
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary, Romance

An enemies-to-lovers romance from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis. Standalone with an HEA and no cliff-hanger.

Brad
I’m in love with my best friend’s girl.
She knows it. He knows it. Everyone knows it.
Faye will never be mine, but try telling that to my stupid heart.
An endless rotation of girls streams in and out of my bedroom in a desperate attempt to forget her, but nothing eases the horrid ache in my chest. Rejection isn’t anything new for me, but it hasn’t gotten any easier.
Until she reappears in my life. Like an out-of-control tornado. Storming in, all fierce and angry, ready to steamroll everything in her path. Rachel is trouble with a capital T bundled in a gorgeous, sexy, Irish package.
She pushes all the wrong buttons, and I can’t decide if I want to yell at her or kiss her.
I should steer clear.
But I’ve never been very good at taking my own advice. Especially when it comes to girls I can’t have and shouldn’t want.

Rachel
I need to escape.
To put as much distance between me and that monster so I can start living my life.
Yet, even the vast Atlantic Ocean isn’t enough to sever the connection. To allow me to forget how he’s ruined me. His hold is more than just physical. He has a vise grip on my head and my heart, and I can’t breathe, can’t think, can’t function.
So, I do everything to blot it out.
Until he reappears in my life.
Brad McConaughey. So hot. So infuriating. So in love with my best friend.
Every word out of Brad’s mouth makes me want to throat punch him or kick him in the nuts.
But he makes me feel, and I hate him for it. A part of me might actually love him for it.
I should keep my distance, but like destructive magnets, we are drawn together.
This isn’t going to end well.
I know it. He knows it.
But we’re powerless to resist.

I love the Kennedy Boys series. Most people who follow my reviews, tweets, blog posts, Facebook posts, etc, probably know this of me by now. BUT I had a hard time with starting this book. Going in I knew it wouldn’t be a favorite, because I’ve never been a fan of Brad. I even questioned why he was getting his own book if he was not a Kennedy! A novella ok, but a book? BUT I am a very big fan of Siobhan’s writing and I trusted her and tried to have an open mind. But, the first 30% of the book had me questioning my judgement!!! Ugh!! But then there was a shift in the story and things started to change, and I became very involved!!

I love Rachel!! She is a very strong person and throughout the book I came to like her even more!!! Whereas with Brad….I didn’t like him, not really at all!! But I came to like him. Rachel is good for him. They were good for each other.

Oh….I have to insert this here….I think Faye would be the coolest chic to have as a friend!! She’s an AWESOME, LOYAL, CARING friend and the girl is SOOO FUNNY!!!

Anyway, it was nice to see the old Brad….the one from book 1 of the Kennedy Boys series (Finding Kyler)….when he was such a sweetheart. If you haven’t read that book….holy crap! You. Are. Missing. Out.

So…if you asked me at 30% if I recommend it…well……BUT NOW IF YOU ASK ME, IM LIKE HELL YEAH!!! READ THIS BOOK!!!

 

This is Siobhan, one of my favorite authors. She never fails to impress me with her writing. She has the gift of words and a head full of wonderful stories! Besides this series she has two Science Fiction/Romance Series, plus other various works, and she has LOTS of future projects in store!! This is an author to stop and take notice of!!

Sometimes your life is split by a single decision.

I’ve spent every day of the last seven years regretting mine: he left, and I didn’t follow. A thousand letters went unanswered, my words like petals in the wind, spinning away into nothing, taking me with them.

But now he’s back.

I barely recognize the man he’s become, but I can still see a glimmer of the boy who asked me to be his forever, the boy I walked away from when I was young and afraid.

Maybe if he’d come home under better circumstances, he could speak to me without anger in his voice. Maybe if I’d said yes all those years ago, he’d look at me without the weight of rejection in his eyes. Maybe if things were different, we would have had a chance.

One regretted decision sent him away. One painful journey brought him back to me. I only wish I could keep him.

*A contemporary romance inspired by Jane Austen’s Persuasion*

My Review:
 

I so enjoy reading Christie Ridgway’s Books! I really enjoy these stories from Beach House #9. It’s such a magical place.
It was the best place for Griffin to end up when he came home after spending a year in Afghanistan as a Journalist witnessing the horrors of war. He comes home a broken man who puts up walls and shuts down, spending time around partiers, listening to loud music and drinking and whatever he can do to shut out his thoughts. He can’t sleep at night, and he does everything to avoid writing the book that Jane is sent to help him write. She has her work cut out for her.

The relationship between Griffin and Jane sneaks up on them. There’s definitely attraction, lots of attraction. Then lots of sex. But both of these characters have problems with relationships and so they fight their feelings and deny their feelings, until you want to scream at them.

But once they did admit their feeling, it was THAT MUCH SWEETER!!!

Ex-soldier Zane Tucker is perfectly happy with his single life and his adventure watersports business. A gambler by nature, he figures the odds of finding a woman for forever are a lot longer than finding a woman for right now. And as a man of action and not emotion, he believes a woman with lasting romance on the mind would want someone with less hard muscle and more soft sentiment. But then his dog hurtles toward the new county librarian, yanking Zane into her delicate, pretty presence. Will they both scare her away? And why does that worry him so?

Harper Grace has a bucket list of goals to tick off and is determined to live every moment to the fullest by overcoming her usual shyness. No one will call her too timid and too boring ever again. But then a giant of a man and his equally large dog charge into her life and she can’t decide if she wants to take a step back…or step fully into Zane’s strong arms. She’s been brave enough to change her life, but does she have enough courage to risk her heart?

In Pieces by Danielle Pearl

Genre: New Adult Romance

Publishing Date: October 10th, 2017

Three years ago she was left in pieces . . . Most college freshmen love the newfound freedom of living on campus, but none of them craves it like Beth Caplan. One ill-fated night when she was fifteen left her locked in a posh prison of private tutors. It’s for the best, everyone said, and maybe it was. But after years of hard work and healing, the one person who never thought of her as broken could be the one to break her all over again. And Beth can’t seem to stay away now any more than she could all those years ago.

As soon as David March learned his best friend’s little sister was enrolling at his school, he promised to look after her, and promised himself he’d keep a safe distance. But the sweet little girl he’d grown up with has transformed into a gorgeous young woman, and she’s attracting attention from people she shouldn’t-like the ex who nearly destroyed her and a strange new student with a disturbing habit of showing up wherever Beth goes. But for David, the most troubling discovery is realizing that he doesn’t just want Beth to be safe. He wants her to be his.

From This Moment by Melanie Harlow

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publishing Date: October 10th, 2017

It was like seeing a ghost.

When my late husband’s twin brother moves back to our small town, I want to avoid him. Everything about Wes reminds me of the man I lost and the life we’d planned together, and after eighteen long months struggling just to get out of bed, I’m finally doing okay. I have a new job, an amazing support group, and a beautiful five-year-old daughter to parent. I don’t want to go backward.

But I’m drawn to him, too. He understands my grief and anger and guilt like no one else—and I understand his. Before long, that understanding becomes desire, and that desire becomes uncontrollable.

He says he doesn’t care what people think, and love can never be wrong. But life has taught me its cruelest lesson–love doesn’t always win.

If only my heart would believe it.

The Secret by Christie Ridgway

#IMG_2118This is the first book I’ve read by Christie Ridgway, but it definitely will not be the last. The Secret was all kinds of sweetness, sexiness and a very emotional read.

I fell in love with all the central characters as they came on the scene. Charlotte “Charlie” is the butler for the Archer household. She keeps everything running smoothly, including taking care of six-year-old Wells Archer. Wells is adorable and so well behaved, and he adores Charlie. Ethan Archer is Well’s father. Ethan works a lot and is away a lot, so having Charlie is a necessity. But one thing is certain, Ethan adores his son. Ethan’s wife, and Well’s mother, died four years earlier. Ethan hasn’t moved on, or started dating since. His boss has been really leaning on him, pushing him to date. This is when Ethan begins to notice Charlie. He’s always liked Charlie, and appreciated her. But has he always noticed how gorgeous she was?

Charlie has a hard time. She has had a crush on her boss, Ethan, for a while. But, Charlie knows it wouldn’t be right to act on that. It wouldn’t be professional, it would be against everything she learned at the Continental Butler School. But slowly she breaks down and I love the flirting that goes on between the two. And of course their first priority is Wells and so they are very careful about that.

The thing I kept finding hard to accept was that Ethan said he already had the love of his life, and he could never have that again. He didn’t believe there was room in his heart to love anyone else, because the love for his dead wife and his son were filling his heart. But he wanted her to marry her, as a marriage of convenience. He was extremely attracted to her and cared about her, it was the love word…he couldn’t do that. But she was ok with that. I was like…WHAT!!!

But, don’t let that discourage you folks. This is a HEA and I absolutely loved the ending!!! This was such a sweet book with really great characters!! If you love a good romance, I bet you’ll love this one!!

~Thanks to the author for providing a copy of this book via L Woods PR in exchange for my honest thoughts.
