More wonderful fake boyfriend adventures from RJ & Meredith

Kaden (Boyfriend For Hire #2)Kaden by R.J. Scott & Meredith Russell

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love a good fake boyfriend trope and this one follows the usual path to happiness.

The official boyfriend business for hire contracting out the boss’ cousin for a job starts the narrative with an insight into Kaden’s early life and sets things up well for the rest of the romance.

It’s a fairly slow burn and also has an added secondary plot which is a more serious thread and which I thought worked very well as a counterpoint to the sweetness of Ryan and Kaden beginning to trust each other.

I’ve liked both books in this series and hope RJ and Meredith plan more.

Episode Four: Will & Patrick Fight Their Feelings

Will and Patrick have embraced adding hot sexy times to their fake marriage, but as their emotions deepen, they confront whether or not they want to be more than friends-with-benefits. The heat is high (and occasionally kinky) as Will and Patrick struggle to accept their mutual affection.

Episode Five: Will & Patrick Meet the Mob

Patrick has finally accepted that he’s in love with Will, but his newfound determination to do something about that runs up against his father-in-law’s mobster plans. Will must face the truth about his family before he can fully come to terms with his feelings for Patrick. And Patrick has to decide if this whackadoodle world is something he truly wants to be part of forever.

Episode Six: Will & Patrick’s Happy Ending

Sure, Will and Patrick are in love now, but they weren’t when they got married in Vegas. For Patrick, that’s no problem, but Will can’t shake his doubts that a relationship started through coercion can ever become the real deal. Since the Molinaro crime family has reversed their position on divorce, Will and Patrick have a chance to rectify their drunken mistake. But is divorce the right choice for them?

Does trauma define or motivate a person?

Homeless and rejected, Henry Sullivan arrived on the doorstep of Ryan’s Place with nothing but the clothes on his back. Life as he knew it was over. Within those walls, Henry found the encouragement and love needed to turn hopeless into hopeful. Enrolling for summer classes at his community college was the first step toward achieving the dreams he thought were lost to him. There was just one little snag: the professor standing in the front of the room taught Henry the true meaning of human sexuality.

After a crushing breakup, Professor Ezra Meyer moved to the Queen City for a fresh start where everything was new—job, home, and friends. His first challenge: prove the benefits of his biology of human sexuality course outweighed the controversy. Ezra agreed to teach the class during the summer semester at a community college associated with his university to gauge interest. There was just one little problem: Ezra had personally demonstrated the unit on Sexual Technique and Behaviors with one of his students.

Random or Fate?

It was supposed to be a harmless hookup on a night when Henry was celebrating his birthday and Ezra was trying to ease his loneliness. Fast forward six months later, the attraction blazed hotter than ever, but acting on it could have dire consequences neither man was willing to risk. Or were they? Could true love be Henry and Ezra’s ultimate reward, or were they destined to become just another sad lesson learned?

Beautiful Trauma is a story about triumph over tragedy, embracing the unexpected, and a reminder that family is more than biology. Are you looking for a feel-good romance with witty banter, toe-curling passion, and a story that stays with you long after the final page? Look no further.

Beautiful Trauma is the third book in the Queen City Rogues series but reads as a standalone book. It contains sexually explicit material and colorful language and is intended for adults 18 and over.

Beautiful Trauma Teas 3

Excerpt

Ezra lifted his head and smiled down at me. “I like the way you think.”He started to lower his head to kiss me but jerked back. “Fuck!”

“What is it? A muscle spasm?”

“Hey now,”Ezra said, sounding offended. “I’m not that old.”

“There’s no age requirement for a muscle spasm. Remember my limp earlier tonight?”

Ezra nodded to acknowledge my point. “It wasn’t a spasm; a mosquito bit me on the ass.”

He looked so outraged that a mosquito would dare take a bite of his ass. I couldn’t stop the laughter building inside me. “I-I’m sorry,”I managed to say before the dam broke and it burst from my chest. “I’d bite your ass too if I were her.”

Ezra tried not to laugh, but he joined me until he got bit a second time. “That’s it,”he said firmly, leaping to his feet. “It’s time for a bath, then you need to get some sleep.”He blew out the candles and crooked his fingers for me to follow.

On our way to the bathroom, I watched in puzzlement as Ezra stopped by his bedside table and picked up his phone.

“Checking your messages?”I asked.

“Adding citronella candles to my shopping list before I forget,” he quipped. He looked at me with a raised brow. “Not a single smartass joke out of you about faulty memories at my age.”I

held up my hands in surrender. “I wouldn’t dream of it.”My lips quivered and threatened to give way to laughter yet again.

“Get in the bathroom,”Ezra said, pointing to the doorway.

“Yes, sir,” I said cheekily then gasped when Ezra’s hand landed soundly against my bare ass. I spun around to face him. “Spanking wasn’t in the lesson tonight.”

“Keep it up, and you’re going to get a firsthand lesson in spankings, Henry.”

The idea thrilled me to the core, and I suddenly wanted to be naughty—very, very naughty.

Ever since he first set foot in Harrisburg, Tennant’s life has been a rollercoaster. Ups and downs too numerous to mention, hard knocks and championship rings. Through all of those monumental moments, one thing has been a constant for him, Jared Madsen.

Now that their wedding day is drawing nearer, Ten is seriously considering eloping. He would, if not for his mother, his father, his brothers, the wedding planner, the guests, the cake, the press, and the team.

Oh, and then there’s his best friend, who is vying for the job of ringmaster of the wedding circus. Would sneaking off during the night with Jared and skipping to the honeymoon part of the festivities really be all that bad?

When Jared proposed to Ten, he imagined a quiet wedding, on a beach somewhere, with family, and maybe the team. But life gets complicated with Ten’s warring brothers, a Russian goalie with a love of sequins, and a bachelor party organized by Adler.

When Trent sends them a wedding planner, every spare hour is filled with choosing invitations, cake tasting, and finding a rose in the perfect shade of green. Add in Layton organizing a press conference, and suddenly their private wedding is destined to become a media sensation.

Is it wrong to think seriously about kidnapping Ten and spiriting him away to a small deserted island?

Adler organizing the bachelor party, Trent supplying the wedding planner, and Stan writing a speech. What can possibly go wrong?

Jessie and Sean’s romance wraps with a trip to Faerie and it’s awesome

Salmon Cover
Salmon and the Hazel
by Sam Burns

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I can’t believe there’s only one book left now after this one wrapped up the romance between Jessie and Sean alongside a trip into Faerie.

Lots goes on in this one, there’s a bit more humour and a little less madness as Jessie and Sean go hunting for the tree of wisdom.

There’s clever use of mythology, including some of the lesser known (outside of Celtic mythology fans that is) Irish tales which mesh into the whole Summer/Winter Court of the Fae.

And, without spoiling anything, the best appearance and interaction with a unicorn I’ve ever read 🤣

So with the countdown to the epic conclusion at hand, I can’t wait to see how Fletcher and Conner will achieve their HEA at the same time as protecting Rowan Harbor from the big bad!

Bittersweet ending for me as we say goodbye to the Railers

Save The Date (Harrisburg Railers #9)Save The Date by R.J. Scott & V.L. Locey

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

As it started, so it ends, with Tennant Rowe and Jared Masden and it’s utter perfection.

The wedding everyone in ice hockey fandom has been waiting for is finally here and it comes along with a run through of guest appearances from all the other Harrisburg Railers couples.

Stan is still the best Russian goalie ever, Trent is still a total riot, Adler, Layton, Erik, Dieter and the rest of the crew fall into place like comfy slippers.

There’s a wee bit of drama as nothing ever goes to plan with a wedding but all’s well that ends well and the Railers main squeezes head off into a blissful Greek sunset with visions of their ridiculously happy life ahead.

I’ve loved this series from start to finish and, while sad it’s ending, it goes out on a total high.
