Starla. Just Starla.

She doesn’t have a last name, and she doesn’t need one. Not with that many Grammys on her mantel. Everyone knows her kick-ass, no-holds-barred style of singing, dancing, and living.

No one knows that America’s Sweetheart is still living with the wreckage of four years ago, when her world was torn apart. Losing her fiancé was devastating, but she’s channeled all of that into her music. Closing off her heart opened a hundred new doors.

Officer Levi Crawford, Seattle PD.

For almost twenty years, Levi has been consumed by the law. He eats, sleeps, and breathes work. Not just because he’s a workaholic, but because he loves it. Sure, he doesn’t have time for a woman and barely sees the rest of his family, but it’s a trade he’s always been happy to make.

Until Starla.

Two lonely hearts could learn to beat again, if they’re willing to dance together.

About Kristen:

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.

Cover Reveal ~ Maybe Later by Claudia Burgoa

Title: Maybe Later
Author: Claudia Burgoa
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Hang Le
Release Date: March 7, 2019
My personal assistant—a.k.a. half my brain—has abandoned me to have a
baby. Alright, alright, I’m not a total jerk, but the temporary virtual
assistant Carla left in her place is driving me crazy.

I’ve repeatedly refused to fill out Amy Walker’s way-too-friendly
questionnaire. But somehow, she ninjas me into giving up details about my
private life—all while suffering her oh-so-subtle jabs at my likes, dislikes,
even my system for running my business.

I don’t care what she heard, I am not a problem child.
I just know what’s tried and true.

At first, her feel-good P.S. quotes sounded more like B.S. Yet our
emails and texts gradually take on a new dimension, and I find myself thinking
of her as something I haven’t cultivated in a long time. A friend.

Maybe she’s right. It’s time I get a life. Starting with stepping out
from behind the screen and putting my feelings on the line. I’ll never know
unless I try.

Note: Contains a
grumpy, workaholic tech CEO with a guarded heart, and a virtual assistant whose
skills border on diabolical. Also, two cats named Ramen and Sushi.

Game on by Kelly Jamieson

Game On (Aces Hockey, #8)

Title: Game On
Author: Kelly Jamieson
Rating: 4 stars
Genre: Romance
Where I got it: Public Library


Goodreads Summary

Cam Brickley and his pro hockey teammates bet on everything: who can win five faceoffs in a row, who can do forty pushups in less than a minute, who can eat a ghost pepper without puking. But when his buddies bet him he can’t date the same woman—like, say, the hot blonde over at the bar—for two months and not fall in love, he’ll take that bet all day. Then he’ll laugh all the way to the hockey arena, where they’ll be washing his jock straps for the rest of the season, because Cam’s never giving up his bachelor lifestyle.

Olivia Lockwood, heiress to the Lockwood Industries fortune, is used to people using her for her money and family connections. When Cam Brickley hits on her in a club, Olivia’s first instinct is to brush him off. But he couldn’t be using her for her money, since he has more than enough of his own. Cam’s gorgeous and built, and it would be no hardship to go out with him . . . besides, he’d be the perfect spokesperson for the children’s charity she works with. Maybe it’s time for her to start using people.

Cam and Olivia are both in it for something. What they don’t know yet is that they’re playing for keeps.


I LOVE hockey romances. I’m not sure why; oh, yeah, because I LOVE hockey. Add to that this book took place in Chicago (my town) and added a lot of actual Chicago history and landmarks, and I’m sold!

Cam Brickley is a hockey player on the Chicago Aces. Olivia Lockwood is an heiress to Lockwood Industries, but branched out from the family business and started a not-for-profit to help kids get moving. When Cam hits on Olivia after making a bet with his friends that he could date someone for two months without falling in love, Olivia decides to see if she can get Cam to be the celebrity spokesman for her charity.

Their relationship started off rocky. I won’t give a bunch away, because this book has some really funny moments between Cam and Olivia.

Olivia has some lingering self-doubt from her childhood, but feeling she could never measure up to her siblings, and Cam’s most serious relationship ended very badly. Watching them fall in love was sweet. It was obvious they were in love to us, even when it wasn’t to them.

Hopefully this isn’t the last of the Aces. I’ve enjoyed those I’ve read. And I would recommend this one.

 Release Date: March 1, 2019
Mission: Survive my best friend’s wedding, where I must play
nice with my ex and his perfect new girlfriend.

Strategy: Bring the hottest fake boyfriend on the planet.

Target: Grady Rock. Master Baker. Dimples. Muscles. The
unicorn of fake boyfriends.

Complication: Wyatt Morgan. My brother’s best friend. My
sworn enemy. Military man. Sexy as hell single dad. The man I let into my
panties for one night of hot hate sex after my ex dumped me before my life fell

And the man who just scared off that perfect fake boyfriend.

By pretending to be my real boyfriend.

I can roll with this though. What’s the harm in Flirting

Complete my mission and move on.

Or so I thought.

Until Wyatt kisses me again and I start feeling things

The thing about weddings…nothing ever goes as planned.

Flirting with the Frenemy is a rollicking fun romantic

alone with no cheating or cliffhangers

Top Ten Tuesday ~ Favorite TV Couples

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that originated on The Broke and The Bookish. As of January 2018, it moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is favorite book couples, but I’m going to do my favorite TV couples instead.

These are in no particular order, except for #1, which is my very favorite.

Jim and Pam from The Office. There is no other couple I love as much as Jim and Pam. When Jim asked Pam out at the end of Season 3 – my grin was as wide as Pam’s. I love them so much.

2. Leslie and Ben from Parks and Recreation. Man, Amy Poehler and Adam Scott have some amazing chemistry!!! There were such a great couple.

3. Mary and Matthew from Downton Abbey. I loved Matthew so much. Mary not so much, but she was somewhat more likable when she was with him, she was a better person for sure.

4. Amy and Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory. Yes, I like them the best of all the couples on the show. They have both grown so much over the course of the show and I just love them.

5. Nick and Jess from New Girl. Two people who didn’t belong together but were absolutely perfect for one another. I’m a big fan of Nick and Jess.

6. Chandler and Monica from Friends. No Ross and Rachel? No, they were pretty toxic. Monica made Chandler a better person. They are my favorite couple from that show.

7. JD and Elliot from Scrubs. I loved these two together. They were both super quirky and fun.

8. Carrie and Aiden from Sex and the City. I’m sorry, but Aiden is the guy she should have ended up with.

Image result for carrie and aiden sex and the city  gif

8. Carol and Doug from ER. I don’t need much explanation here. They were so good together.

Image result for doug and carol er  gif

9. Kelly and Brandon from Beverly Hills, 90210. I loved these two together. I wish she would have ended up with him instead of Dylan.

Image result for kelly and brandon 90210 gif

10. David and Patrick from Schitt’s Creek. I have no words to describe how much I love this couple. Patrick is the perfect match for David. Watch Schitt’s Creek if you haven’t.
