On and off the field he’s at the top of his game. Roan respects hard work, dedication, and follow through. He’s not a one-and-done kind of man, and he’s far from being done with Allie Harris. One sexy night and two years later, Allie’s job brings her back to town. An opportunity for the perfect replay Roan has been fantasizing about since they slept together.

From beginning to end and some tears in between, I couldn't put this book down. Listening to it around others is probably not the best decision if you tend to randomly laugh really loud like I do. Great chemistry and plot, executed in a hilarious fashion. All members of the Harris family come out to play in this spin-off and I'm definitely bumping up the original series on my TBR so I can see how the couples came to be!

While human lives are endlessly variable, our most memorable positive moments are dominated by four elements: elevation, insight, pride, and connection. If we embrace these elements, we can conjure more moments that matter. What if a teacher could design a lesson that he knew his students would remember 20 years later? What if a manager knew how to create an experience that would delight customers? What if you had a better sense of how to create memories that matter for your children?

Gwyneth Shepherd's sophisticated, beautiful cousin Charlotte has been prepared her entire life for traveling through time. But unexpectedly, it is Gwyneth who, in the middle of class, takes a sudden spin to a different era! Gwyneth must now unearth the mystery of why her mother would lie about her birth date to ward off suspicion about her ability, brush up on her history, and work with Gideon, the time traveler from a similarly gifted family that passes the gene through its male line, and whose presence becomes, in time, less insufferable and more essential.

When Rose sets her sights on one man, she's determined that he'll be the one that her Aunt arranges for her marriage. After the wedding however, she quickly discovers that marriage isn't all she thought it would be and that Shawn is perfectly content with not being in a loving relationship, as long as he gets the other benefits. It took me a bit to warm up to Rose, but I really enjoyed this story and the characters growth along the way.

Della Stout can hardly believe it when her father tells her he's lost it all - the money, the house, the servants, their entire fortune. But things only get worse when they inform her she's to be sent west, as a mail order bride. When she meets her husband to be, she's less than impressed - by him and the dusty little town he lives in.

The storyline was a little slow for my liking, but I tend to listen to quicker pace stories at work to make the day go fast. It's a charming, clean read that I'll probably revisit and give another go! The narrator was wonderful, and honestly, the only reason I kept trying to finish the story. I love how she brings the characters to life, I just needed more comedy or drama!

As an NHL player, relationships haven't been my thing. Shrouded in secrecy and speculation, they never last very long. But then that's what happens when you require an NDA before the first date. Until Charlene. She's like a firefly. She's elusive, and if you catch her she'll burn bright, but keeping her trapped dulls her fire and dims her beauty. I caught her. And as much as I might want to keep her, I'll never put the lid on her jar. Not at the risk of losing her. So I've let her set the rules in our relationship.

The final book in the series is my first read and I loved it! I always listen to the comedy romance books while at work, and my co-workers enjoy making fun of me when I start laughing out loud. This book has plenty of romance, laughter and serious moments. I enjoyed the characters and the storyline, and will definitely be going back to read the rest of the series now too!

I can’t spend three days alone on a boat with that psychotic, traitorous woman. But a red-haired beauty boarding the ship catches my eye. I make her an offer she can’t refuse. She accepts my proposal and my money. Three days should have been the end of it. But I don’t want our relationship to be fake. Not after getting to know her and the connection we share.

Jake Marcum’s busy ranch leaves him no time for courting, and his wounded heart has no place for love. When battlefield nightmares disturb his peace and his tomboy niece Juliet needs taming, somehow a mail-order bride seems like a logical solution. Dr. Evangeline Olson has no idea her niece is writing to a rancher on her behalf, and she sure isn’t interested in abandoning her medical practice for a stranger. But when an inheritance threatens to reveal a long-buried secret, she travels west to become Jake’s wife. Jake soon realizes Evangeline is more than he bargained for.

The second book in the Naughty Princess club, with a Beauty and the Beast twist. Follow along as the Beast comes to Belle's rescue, but does it come with a price? I absolutely love this series. I buy the audiobook as soon as it's available and listen to it in one sitting. My cheeks always hurt so bad from laughing non-stop!
