Not So Happily Ever After - Christina Phillips

This book is #3 in the British Bad Boys series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  It is not necessary to read these in order, but it is enjoyable.


Mackenzie AKA "Mack" is still reeling for her feelings for her brother's best friend - when he appears at her door.  They are to help a mutual friend, and not ruin the careful truce that has been declared.  Can that actually work?


Will is not sure what to do or say.  He really wants a future with the girl that is just out of his reach.  He also wants a future where he gets to choose.  Maybe the strength will come by standing by the side of the woman who can make it all happen.


This was a great story.  I loved the banter with these two.  I really love this trope and hope to see more.  The book has all sorts of heat and sparks between this couple.  The pace moves along well.  I enjoy this series and hope to see more.  I give a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Happy Halloween, sitting here...and not getting a single trick or treater, we never have since I lived here (busy road). 


I finished fewer books this month than I have with previous months, but I didn't too bad with 13.  I also managed to pull off a black-out on Halloween Bingo.  So yay me.  Again, most of my read books are technically Audiobooks, so hey, what can I say?  I really like them.  I had some decent books for the month, but I'm still feeling disappointed by The Darkest Star...I was really excited about it when I got approved for it on Netgalley.

Good Book and Characters
Going Down On One Knee - Christina Hovland

Velma twin sister was Claire and her boyfriend Dean had bog news to tell Velma. Velma thinks she knows their news- they were moving in together. Velma had a crush on Dean for years they worked together as financial planner and they had worked together for years but Velma hadn’t made her move and Claire had Dean. Velam had a elaborate five year plan-  she had step one and two- a successful career and a posh apartment that eventually rent out as an investment. Velam has spreadsheets and dating charts she tries to live by and keep trying to find Mr. Right. Then Velma saw a motorcycle park in a spot meant for Velma’s visitors. The man got off his bike and pulled off his helmet and was totally hot ,. Velma didn’t do badbutt. Then she found out the man was Dean’s friend Brek who would also have dinner with Dean, Claire, and Velma. After Brek asked what she did, he told her he was in the music business. He managed a band called Dimefront. +When Claire and Dean got there she showed Velma her engagement ring, Claire and Dean were getting married. Velma put a smile on her face. She could see Claire was excited and in love. Those grey eyes messed with Brek’s sanity from the parking lot to the kitchen. Brek liked Velma , she was stacked but also funny and sexy. Brek had seen a lot of fake smiles working with celebrities. Velma had flinched when Claire announced her engagement and her smile was definitely fake. Jase, Brek, Eli,Jase and Dean had been friends since HS. Dean asked Brek to be his best man. Ek]li will deal with the catering and Jase would handle the flowers. Claire asked Velma to be her maid of honor. They will be getting married in three months in August. Aspen id Nreks sister who has had a problem having a baby she is pregnant right now but was put in the hospital as she  had went into preterm labor. Aspen was put on hospital bedrest and she asked Brek to run her business until she could again it had just started to pick up again. As far as Brek is concerned there was one thing worse than a celebrity rocker on a four day bender, it was a bridezilla who wanted the perfect wedding . He handles sound systems parties, drunk-off-their- butt musicians. Brek made good money and loved the thrill of his work. What he did not enjoy was an overly emotional woman in a pouffy white dress. But Brek could not stand to see his younger sister in tears and agreed to help. Brek is really not the type of guy to stay put in one location for a long time before he ready to move on. Brek and Velma had a hot chemistry even though Velma did not want to be attracted to Brek he wasn’t her type or fit into her five year plan. Brek’s mom was a matchmaker whom would happily work on a match for him, Brek rents a rook off Velma as he had t be there to run his sister’s business while she’s in the hospital. .

I really enjoyed this book. It was a light hearted funny romance. Where two opposite people can’t help but get together. I really liked Brek and Velma together and how they interacted. I loved how Brek stepped up to help his hospitalized pregnant younger sister even if it was the last thing in the world he wanted to do. I chuckled a lot while reading this. It caught my attention from the beginning and kept it to the end. I really liked the plot as well as the pace of this book. Brek and Velma are really opposite each other but make it work. I loved that the relationship grew the more time Brek and Velma spent together. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend it.

Going Down On One Knee (A Mile High Matched Novel Book 1) by Christina Hovland
Going Down On One Knee - Christina Hovland



Velma thought she found her sunshine until she was doused by a bout of rain. What happens when the road to happiness takes a detour into uncharted territory? Hovland makes heartache fun. Going Down on One Knee is a new beginning for a broken heart. Brek is Velma's road less traveled, but proves to be a perfect fit for love. Sometimes it takes stepping out of our comfort zone to find a happy ending. A lightly insightful way to look at a powerful piece of advice.

BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - Cradled (Beholder #4.5) by Christina Bauer
Cradled - Christina Bauer
Cradled is the last novella in the Beholder series. We already know the majority of the characters, but it's always good to reunite with them! Rowan and Elea are more than happy together, just with minor problems caused by their families. However, trouble comes there way in the shape of Kronos, who is the ruler of the planet Elea's parents were exiled to. They need the help of the Lightning Goddess and her Consort to save Jicho, and bring back the peaceful times to their rule.
Although this is only a novella, there is still plenty of action. The Lightning Goddess and her Consort are crossover characters from another series, but you don't need to know as that it doesn't really impact this story. I loved their attitudes however, and I loved how Elea and Rowan were with them.
With no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt my reading flow, this felt like the perfect ending to Rowan and Elea's story. With all characters playing a part, it felt like the ending. I finished this book feeling completely satisfied, with a happy smile on my face.
If you like this series, then you defintiely need to read this one! It's just not complete without it!
