She’s always played it safe…

College junior Lucy Washington abides by one rule—avoid risk at all costs. She’s cautious in every aspect of her life, from her health, to her mock trial team, to the boring guys she dates. When a brash, gorgeous jock walks into the campus coffee shop and turns his flirt on, Lucy is stunned by the force of attraction. For the first time ever, she’s willing to step out of her comfort zone, but can she really trust the guy who’s determined to sweep her off her feet?

He’s always played around…

Entering his last year of college eligibility, linebacker Matthew "Matty" Iverson has the team captaincy in his sights. And it’s his for the taking, if he can convince his quarterback Ace Anderson to give up the starting position. Luckily, Matty already has an edge—the hottie he’s lusting over just happens to be Ace’s childhood best friend. Getting Lucy on his side and in his bed? Hell yeah. Matty is more than confident he can have both, but when he falls hard for Lucy, it’s time for a new game plan: convince the woman of his dreams that she’s not sleeping with the enemy.

It’s been ages since I’ve read this book but it was our book club book of the month for March, so I dug it out and read all about Matty Iverson falling in love with Lucy Washington again. I loved my re-read of this book. It was like coming home after a long day at work. I really enjoyed the chemistry, the romance and the dialogue between Matty and Luce.

So, Matty Iverson is about to be a senior in college and he’s low key over the party scene. He just won the national championship and like a champ does, he parties like there’s no tomorrow to celebrate his team’s achievement with his team and things get a lot out of hand. He’s all partied out and hooking up with random strangers all the time is getting old so instead of continuing the party, he starts hanging out by himself and hitting the books. He meets Lucy Washington and when she rejects him, he’s thrown for a loop. Matty doesn’t get rejected but there’s a first time for everything and it figures that the girl that finally interests him doesn’t return the interest.

Matty turns up the charm as he tries to get Lucy to go out with him. Lucy isn’t having it. She made a promise to her best friend J.R. “Ace” Anderson that she would steer clear of his football teammates and he promised to steer clear of all of her friends. Matty is persistent and Lucy is starting to cave because Matty is starting to show signs that he is a lot more than the person she thought he was and she likes who she is getting to know.

The romance between Matty and Lucy was a fun one. I loved seeing them flirt with each other, wear each other down and then come together like a giant ball of lust. They were such a fun couple and I loved how protective Matty was over Lucy and I loved how loyal Lucy was even when she was stuck in between Matt and Ace. There was a lot going on in this book and I loved being a part of all of it. Matt and Lucy were fun, Hammer, Sutton and Charity and the rest of the guys on the football team, they were all great.

The diabetic stuff with Lucy rang true and got the approval from my book club. There are a few diabetics in our club and they were impressed with the author’s knowledge and the way that it’s treated in the story. It was a part of Lucy’s life, the same way that it’s a part of theirs. It’s not entirely who they are but it’s a big part of their lives and they all thought that Frederick handled it all quite nicely.

Matt was our favorite thing about the book. He was a good, solid hero who wasn’t perfect and didn’t try to be. He was in love and let himself be in love. We connected with him as a person and with the stuff he was dealing with. Between the captaincy, the whole drama with Ace and then his budding relationship with Lucy, the way that he was with everyone completely won us over.

Lucy was strong and she was fun but most importantly, she was normal. Everyone would be able to see a little bit of themselves in Lucy and the way that she was in all aspects of her life was a lot of fun to read because she was complicated but she was real.

I can’t say enough good things about this book except Ace. Ace was such a shitty person. A shitty friend. A shitty teammate and we took a vote at book club and not a lot of people are interested in reading Ace’s book, haha. Poor guy. But this book? It gets a high recommendation from me because I loved the book, the characters, this world and the romance. You won’t be sorry if you pick this one up. It’s a damn good book.

Bestselling author Staci Hart brings you another installment of the Austen Series, inspired by the works of Jane Austen, with a heartfelt contemporary retelling of Sense and Sensibility.

When Annie Daschle arrives in New York City, the only thing she can control is her list.

Not her father’s death or the loss of her home. Not the hole in her heart or the defective valve that’s dictated so much of her life. But she can put pen to paper to make a list of all the ways she can live out loud, just like her dad would have wanted.

See the city from the top of the Empire State Building: Check.Eat hot dogs on the steps of The Met: Check.Get a job at Wasted Words: Check.

What wasn’t on her list: Greg Brandon. And just when she thinks she’s figured out where to put him, everything changes. In the span of a few staggering heartbeats, she finds herself caught in the middle of something she can’t find her way out of, with no clear answers and no rules.

List or no list, she realizes she can’t control anything at all, not even her heart.

Not the decisions it makes, and not the moment it stops.

​Living Out Loud is the third book in the Austen series by Staci Hart. The story follows Annie Daschle as she moves from a small town in Texas to the bright lights of New York City. After her father dies, Annie’s life is thrown for a loop and she’s determined to live every day like it’s her last so she makes a list of things she wants to do in New York.

Landing a job at Wasted Words, a coffee shop/bar/bookstore makes Annie super happy because she led such a sheltered life back in Texas and she’s hoping to come out of her shell here in New York and meeting Greg has helped with that goal. A friendship that Annie treasures sparks up between her and Greg and once she lets herself open up more, things start happening for her and she gets so wrapped up making memories and developing relationships that she spends a good chunk of the book trying to figure out what’s real and what’s not.

Rowena: Alright Ames, start us off. What did you think?

Ames: I have to be honest-I was all over the place with this one.l I really enjoy the original Sense and Sensibility and so when I realized who’s story Annie’s was based on I got nervous! But I loved Greg. He was a great guy. But Annie… Annie was 18 and grew up sheltered due to a heart condition and I felt like in some situations she really showed her immaturity and that annoyed me. But I was engrossed enough in the story to keep reading through the annoyance. Lol What did you think Wena?

Rowena: I was the same way. The beginning was slow for me and I kept waiting for something to happen instead of all that gloom and doom thoughts from Annie. Then once the story takes off, I started getting annoyed but then when Greg makes himself known, I cried. So yeah, I was all over the place too.

Overall though, I thought​ ​this book was just okay. It was much too fluffy for what I was in the mood for and everything just seemed to happen perfectly for Annie at the same time that everything was so dramatic and just…meh.

Ames: I agree, it was fluffy and that would have been ok but for Annie. She was just too…sunshine and rainbows for my taste. I have a really hard time believing that Greg who was ten years older than her would really have fallen for someone so naive and innocent. Despite that, I can see that he would be a good guy to grow up with. But it just seems unfair to him. The relationship could potentially be uneven, with him giving of himself all the time.

I was happy with the way every turned out though. Annie learned some lessons that weren’t too painful and we were introduced to the awesomeness that was Greg. Overall, Living out Loud was an ok read and I’m going to give it a 3.5 out of 5.

One last thing though, how awesome would it be to work at Wasted Words?

Rowena: I thought the same thing, too. I thought that Greg gave a lot to the relationship and that Annie…didn’t because she was much too young and naive and that kind of got on my nerves. Greg made the book for me though. I loved him. I thought he was a great hero and that I felt bad that he couldn’t catch a break where Annie was concerned. Imagine, never falling in love and then when you finally do, it’s with someone so much younger than you, someone in a different place in life than you but your heart wants what it wants and homegirl just kept right on messing with your plans?

Like I said, this book was not a bad book but it was a fluffy and much too sweet for what I wanted to read. Still, Greg was great and YESSSSS! I think it would be awesome to work at Wasted Words because that historical mixer? Loved it. I also loved that Annie was a huge Julia Quinn fan. Haha, that brightened me right up reading that.

I’m giving this book a 3 out of 5.

Buddy Review: On a Tuesday by Whitney G.

We met on a Tuesday. Became best friends, then lovers, on a Tuesday. And everything fell apart on a Tuesday...

Charlotte Taylor has three automatic strikes in my book: 1) She hates me. She also claims that I'm a "domineering jerk with a huge, overbearing ego." (I do have something huge. It's not my ego, though.) 2) She takes our mandatory tutoring sessions way too seriously. 3) She's sexy as hell... And a virgin.

At least, those were her strikes before our study sessions started lasting longer than they were supposed to. Until one innocent kiss became a hundred dirty ones, and until she became the first woman I ever fell hard for.

Our future together after graduation was supposed to be set: Professional football for me. Law school for her.

But she left me at the end of the semester with no explanation, and then she completely disappeared from my life.

Until tonight.

We met on a Tuesday. Became everything, then nothing, on a Tuesday. And now it's seven years later, on a Tuesday...

**This is a full length second chance romance, inspired by Adele's "When We Were Young"**

On a Tuesday is the second chance romance between Charlotte and Grayson. They first meet in college when Charlotte has to tutor Grayson but when Grayson’s football career takes off they lose touch – in a painful way that they blame the other for.

Ames: All right Wena. We’re ten months into our buddy reviews and go us! Someone give us a cookie for being consistent this year. LOL

Okay, enough patting ourselves on the back. What did you think of On a Tuesday?

Rowena: A cookie sounds really good right now so I won’t turn that down. 🙂

On a Tuesday was a solid read but for some reason, I didn’t fully connect with either of the main characters.I liked them both but the heroine got on my nerves and because this was such a short story, my enjoyment suffered because of that. I mean, sure, everything works out in the end and everything is explained away but still…I don’t know, something was missing to make me completely love it.

What about you? What were your thoughts on the book?

Ames: Ever since Sincerely, Carter I’ve been a fan of Whitney G’s writing and although this wouldn’t rank as my top read by her, I still enjoyed it. I think my problem with it was that it was too short! Since the book goes between the past and present (7 years after college) I wanted more of their present than their past. Or I wanted the present flushed out a bit more. Like the reason they were kept apart? I wanted that person to be punished on the page for us to see! Like I would have been furious for 7 years gone like that! I’m just vindictive I guess. Haha

I liked how Charlotte and Grayson’s relationship developed. She didn’t want to tutor him but he had charm to spare and eventually won her over to the dark side. She wasn’t impressed by his football star status and he couldn’t resist the first woman to say no to him. I love that dynamic. I agree with you on connecting with Charlotte’s character – she was fine in college but as an adult she was a bit annoying.

Rowena: Yeah, not being able to flush these characters and their story out was a bit of a let down because like you, I wanted to see the villain pay for what she did and I needed a lot more than what we got.

The going back and forth between the past and the present was a little much for me too. I wanted more present and less past, more balance. I wanted to know what happened in the past but not at the expense of what was happening now if that makes any sense.

I will say that I could not get enough of Grayson Connors. How freaking hot was he? I enjoyed how fierce his feelings for Charlotte were and how much he knew his own mind. I loved how he was mad at her but he loved her and his love for her propelled him in everything he did to fix what was broken between them. Oh man, he totally melted me at every turn.

Ames: Grayson was totally yummy! I like how he kept looking for her even after 7 years. Even if he told himself he was mad at her, he still wanted to see her. I loved it.

I liked Charlotte’s friend too. She protected her but when she needed to she gave Charlotte a kick in the pants to get her to see things clearly.

All right Wena. I’m giving On a Tuesday 3.75 out of 5. I enjoyed it but it didn’t wow. And it was too short. What about you?

Rowena: Yes, to all of that.

I give this book a 3.75 out of 5, too. Grade twins!

Ames and I are on such a roll this month that we’ll be reviewing two books together for October so be on the look out for our buddy review on Played by Jen Frederick.

Have you read On a Tuesday by Whitney G. yet? What did you think? Did you enjoy it more or less than we did? Tell us how you really feel in the comments!

"Passion, pleasure, and princely responsibilities make this sexy fairy tale a real page turner." —Audrey Carlan, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Calendar Girl

Nicholas Arthur Frederick Edward Pembrook, Crowned Prince of Wessco, aka “His Royal Hotness,” is wickedly charming, devastatingly handsome, and unabashedly arrogant―hard not to be when people are constantly bowing down to you.

Then, one snowy night in Manhattan, the prince meets a dark haired beauty who doesn’t bow down. Instead, she throws a pie in his face.

Nicholas wants to find out if she tastes as good as her pie, and this heir apparent is used to getting what he wants.

Dating a prince isn’t what waitress Olivia Hammond ever imagined it would be. There’s a disapproving queen, a wildly inappropriate spare heir, relentless paparazzi, and brutal public scrutiny. While they’ve traded in horse drawn carriages for Rolls Royces and haven’t chopped anyone’s head off lately―the royals are far from accepting of this commoner.

But to Olivia―Nicholas is worth it.

Nicholas grew up with the whole world watching, and now Marriage Watch is in full force. In the end, Nicholas has to decide who he is and, more importantly, who he wants to be: a King... or the man who gets to love Olivia forever.

Rowena: Our August buddy read is Royally Screwed by Emma Chase and it’s a book that both of us have been eager to read. I’ve been meaning to read this book for ages and was super glad when Ames agreed to buddy review it with me.

Prince Nicholas Pembrook is used to living his life for his country. He’s the heir to the throne and his life is dedicated to serving his country and performing duty after duty because that’s what a Prince does. Princes do not complain about their duty. They don’t conduct their lives in a way that would embarrass the crown so when Nicholas’ grandmother, the Queen, tells him that it’s time for him to pick a wife, Nicholas isn’t happy but knows that he will be getting married at the end of summer.

When Nicholas is sent to New York to bring his rowdy younger brother home, on top of performing some duties for the crown, Nicholas is not at all happy. He’s got no time for chasing his brother around to bring him to heel but a Prince does what a Prince has to do. When he meets Olivia Hammond, his plans for the future are thrown into madness.

With his duty to marry coming right around the corner, how is he going to walk away from Olivia for good?

Alright, Ames…what did you think of this book? Thumbs up or down?

​​Ames: I have to give Royally Screwed a thumbs up! At first, I didn’t like Nicholas. The way he thought about women at the beginning of the story gave me pause. And he was definitely an ass. LOL But Olivia was someone who didn’t have time for his crap and she definitely gave it to him straight. I really ended up enjoying their story.

What did you think?

​​Rowena: Same. I really enjoyed this one. Asshole hero and all. I gave him a bit of a slide since he’s a Prince and that just seems like the way that a Prince would act so his redemption arc over the course of the book worked for me.

Olivia was a great heroine. Strong, smart and caring. The way that she lived her life to make sure that her family was taken care of after her mother passed away, that shows a strong personality who did whatever it took to take care of her loved ones. She didn’t pretend to be anything that she wasn’t and I loved that it didn’t change when Nicholas came into her life. It’s so easy to fall in with your new rich boyfriend and take, take, take but Olivia wasn’t like that.

What did you think about the romance?

I really enjoyed their romance. It was fun and it was passionate. They banged like a bunch of rabbits and I can’t even blame her. My legs probably would have stayed open for Nicholas too. LMAO!

​​Ames: I agree about Olivia. She took care of her family and she was compassionate but strong willed as well. I like how she saw the real Nicholas under all his public persona/royalty crap that he had to deal with.

Nicholas did grow on me too. Yes, he was a jerk at the beginning but he really came to care about Olivia. I like how open he and Olivia were together. And he was really all about duty and responsibility so I like that Olivia gave him some fun times too. Despite the short time frame for their relationship to develop, I believed in it.

HOWEVER, I predicted what Nicholas was going to do in the end. I was happy that he did it but I could see it coming. LOL

I liked the range of characters we were introduced to as well. I liked Nicholas’ younger brother, his bodyguards and Olivia’s sister. Even the little dog was a hoot with the way it was described.

What did you think of the Queen? I liked her! Even though she was laying down the law for Nicholas, I could see where she was coming from.

​​Rowena: I’m really looking forward to continuing this series with Henry and then Logan’s book. I liked their characters and want more of them. I already know that I’m going to love Henry’s heroine because she’s a book nerd just like us and in my head? Henry is Prince Harry and umm…YUM! I haven’t figured out yet who will be Logan in my head but I’m sure it’ll be someone fantastic.

As for the Queen. I did like her. I loved seeing how important her duty to their country is and how she instilled that in the boys and was trying her damnedest to get them to take their duties seriously. I loved that she traded quips with both boys and that it was apparent that she loved them as a grandmother is supposed to love them and she wasn’t this ice queen who cared only about the crown. They weren’t just Princes to her, they were her grandsons and I loved their royal family. I can’t wait to see her be all up in Henry’s business in the next book.

Do you know if this is a three book series or will there be more? I’m really happy about Ellie and Logan getting together. Yippy skippy…what about you?

​​Ames: I have no idea if there are further books planned in the series. But I thought of Prince Harry as well! Especially with the antics, the fictional Henry was getting up to. LOL!

I’m more looking forward to Logan’s book – that plot is my catnip.

Overall, I really enjoyed Royally Screwed. I’m glad I stuck with it past the hero’s antics at the beginning. I liked the cast of characters the author introduced us to. This wasn’t a superficial love story. I like how both characters grew and were better people when they were together. Besides a minor complaint about the predictability at the end, I have no problems recommending this book. Any complaints, Ween?

​Rowena: I hear you about Logan’s book. My friend Tasha just finished reading it and she loved it so I’m looking forward to that one too. Gah. So much goodness to look forward to. Emma Chase is such a great author for the male POV. She does it so well and I thought she did it well with Nicholas.

I really enjoyed it and don’t have any complaints. My complaints had more to do with both Olivia and Nicholas taking turns getting on my nerves but in the end, I loved the hell out of both of them so I wouldn’t have any trouble recommending this book to anyone looking for a good, royal read. I’m giving this book a 4 out of 5, you?​

Ames: Emma Chase does do a great job of writing from the male POV!

Royally Screwed gets a 4 out of 5 from me as well. I really enjoyed it and can’t wait to read the next one.

Hosting her brother’s wedding for an MVP guest list is the challenge of Jess Canning’s life. Already the family screw-up, she can’t afford to fail. And nobody (nobody!) can learn of the colossal mistake she made with the best man during a weak moment last spring. It was wrong, and there will not be a repeat. Absolutely not. Even if he is the sexiest thing on two legs.

Blake Riley sees the wedding as fate’s gift to him. Jess is the maid of honor and he’s the best man? Let the games begin. So what if he’s facing a little (fine, a lot) of resistance? He just needs to convince the stubborn blonde that he’s really a good boy with a bad rap. Luckily, every professional hockey player knows that you’ve got to make an effort if you want to score.

But Jess has more pressing issues to deal with than sexy-times with a giant man-child. Such as: Will the ceremony start on time, even though someone got grandma drunk? Does glitter ever belong at a wedding? And is it wrong to murder the best man?

Caution: May cause accidental aspiration of tea or coffee. Do not read in a public place where loud laughter is inappropriate. Contains hot but hilarious hockey players, puppy cuddling and a snarky pair of underwear.

Rowena: Month 2 of 2017 brings about our second buddy review of the year. Ames and I chose to read Good Boy by Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy for February and we’re here to discuss it.

Good Boy kicks off a new series from Bowen & Kennedy. A spin-off from their Him series. The first book features Jamie’s sister Jessica and Wes’ teammate, Blake. They spent an explosive night together and Blake wants to continue the party but Jess has shut that shit down. Blake is a stubborn hockey player and he’s not going to give up so Jess is in for a rude awakening. He knows that she wants him just as much as he wants her and he’s going to keep poking around until she admits it. Should be fun, right?

Right.

This book was such fun for me. What did you think about it, Ames?

Ames: I really enjoyed Good Boy! With the opening scenes, Jess being paranoid over the wedding going off without a hitch and being uptight about any changes to her plans, I thought she was going to be an annoying heroine. And these days, that’s my number one peeve. However, Jess was a pleasant surprise. I really liked the push and pull between her and Blake.

And Blake? OMG he had me laughing out loud more than once. But my favorite bit of dialog involved him referring to his junk as a docking station. If I was drinking something at that moment I know I would have ruined my ereader. haha

Rowena: You know what’s funny? Is that Blake’s personality was so big right from the very beginning and I took a step back from this book because of that…so it was Blake that I was scared I wasn’t going to like but man, I was so wrong because I freaking loved him. He was just my very favorite thing about this entire book. I loved him, his struggles, his personality, his body and seriously, him. It was all him. I loved his docking station, too. Hahaha.

I know what you mean about Jess, though. There were times when I wished that she would just get over herself. Get out of her head and just go with the flow but I never hated her or thought she was dumb. I thought she was a solid heroine. The way that she stood up for Blake in the end? I was really happy with her growth throughout the story. She may not have been my favorite in the beginning but holy cow does she come through in the end. So good.

Do you know who’s book is next?

Ames: Jess does come through in the end! Her and Blake were a great match, their personalities just gelled. I liked how she had some figuring out to do yet with her life. Blake as a pro hockey player is set for the next decade at least but her, she was still figuring out who she was and how she fit in with her big family. And I liked that she wanted to do her schooling on her own. She definitely grew as a character.

I could go on and on about Blake though. He really was the greatest thing about that book. And so stand up! Like the whole deal with his ex? OMG. Just wow. And her? I wanted to smack her…and not because of the lie but because of the dog. LOL

I have two complaints. The dog on the cover and the teen girl with cancer. I’m not saying anything about the dog in the book and the dog on the cover. Just no. And the girl? I honestly wanted to see more of her. I thought there was something unfinished about that little part of the story.

I think Erickson’s book is next.

Rowena: I’m not a big pet person but even I was pissed at the ex about the dog. How dare she play the victim for EVERYTHING. I was annoyed with Blake’s sister Brenna though. Her loyalties should have always been with Blake so I didn’t like that she basically was all, “How could you be so insensitive?” Like, get over it. Jeez.

Yeah, did the teenager come out okay? Did Jess have to deliver the beanie to the little brother or was she miraculously saved by meeting Blake Riley? Some closure where that’s concerned would have been good. I knew you would pick up on the dog thing. You always do.

You’re right, Erickson is up next. I’m going to assume he’s getting back with his ex if the book is titled Stay? What do you think?

Overall, this was an entertaining book that I adored. There were minor things here and there that I didn’t care for but overall, I liked it. Like, really liked it. It was fun and I’m eager for more. I’m curious though, the series is called WAGs…why is that? I didn’t get a very big WAGS feel to this book so I don’t get it. Ha!

My grade for this one would be a 4 out of 5. You?​​

Ames: I agree with your guess about Erickson’s story. I don’t know how I feel about that though. I’m not the biggest fan of second chance stories these days. I’ll still read it since this author duo is the bomb. haha

I’m the same way about this series title! But if the authors are focusing on other team members and their stories, it’ll probably make more sense with the other books.

Like you I really enjoyed Good Boy. Great characters and a good story. I loved seeing so much of Jamie and Wes too. I’m giving this one a 4.25 out of 5.

Have you read Good Boy yet? If so, what did you think? If not, do you have plans to read it?
