I didn’t want to say goodbye to these three amazing men!

CantSayGoodbye-f900-webCan’t Say Goodbye by Eden Finley

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When Eden announced she was writing the next generation of the guys I’d fallen in love with in her Fake Boyfriends series I might have been a tad excited.

Seeing Payton Miller get his happy ever after with Levi in Football Royalty was a joyous experience and one I adored.

But then when she said his brother Brady Talon was going to be falling for two Navy SEALs, well let’s just say expectations were high.

And oh boy does she deliver, in spades, with bells on, shining lights, and an air horn.

This book not only met all my desires and hopes, it took them beyond and into the stratosphere. It’s burning fires of Hell hot, of course it is, the sex is off the charts steaming.

But it’s so, so much more than that. This is a book about love and sacrifice, it’s about pain and hope, it’s about three souls meeting at a perfect place in time and slotting together like the best puzzle pieces.

Each one of the three could manage on their own, and any two of the three could successfully be together as a couple if they’d met in different circumstances.

But what makes them special is what they bring to a relationship as a triad. Each arm of their equilateral triangle has the perfect set of characteristics that matches the gaps the others need filling.

Eden took three men who never set out to find a lifetime of love and melded them through a series of long separations, fears and doubts, hurt and comfort, into a rock-solid partnership with unbreakable chains

I could happily have read another book twice this length filled with their banter, their caring, their support, and their antics between the sheets.

I’m not sure if this is goodbye to the second generation, there are a few cousins still I’d love to see get their happily ever afters. If it is though, what a triumphant note to finish on.

READ MY REVIEW

Vow Maker Cover

Blurb

Dylan Mitchell wants to get married.

However, after seven years of being engaged, that’s looking slightly doubtful. After going through ten wedding planners, they’re gaining a reputation somewhat akin to Henry the Eighth on the wedding circuit.

Gabe has vetoed symbolic dove releases, forests of flowers, fire-eating performers, and puce as a wedding colour. He’s confounded an army of wedding professionals, and now Dylan, the man who knows and loves him better than anyone, has joined the ranks of the confused. Can anything please his fiancé and get them to the altar?

From bestselling author Lily Morton comes the sequel to Rule Breaker. A romantic comedy novella full of family chaos, meddling friends, sexy bathroom encounters, and love. Always love.

Excerpt

I sigh. Another one bites the dust. At this point in our journey towards matrimony, I’ve said those words so many times I could part-time as a Freddie Mercury impressionist. Gabe looks at me as if expecting me to leap in and save him, but it’s every man for himself. I dealt with the last five wedding planners. It’s his turn.

And I must say it’s a very entertaining use of an hour as I watch Gabe finally meet his match. Helen moves from a vigorous defence of her wedding vision—one that belongs only in a Netflix historical drama—to indignation and, at last, rage. It’s a familiar destination if you’re dealing with Gabe.

Finally, however, she accepts defeat, saying in a very shrill voice, “You will never know marital bliss with that kind of attitude, Mr Foster.” Slinging her pashmina over her shoulder, she exits our house in a cloud of ire and Chanel perfume.

I stretch as Gabe comes back into the room after letting her out. “Helen, one. Gabe, nought.” I mime a tennis swing. “New balls, please.”

“That’s a very mixed metaphor and explains a great deal about your sports knowledge.” The love of my life heads to the cupboard and pulls out a bottle of Johnnie Walker Black Label. He waggles the bottle at me. “Want one?”

“Now? Isn’t it a bit early?”

“You tell me. Haven’t we got another planner coming in an hour? They’re like excessively happy buses.”

“I’ll have half the bottle,” I say promptly.
