The man had seemed so innocent in the bar - okay, not innocent, per say. He’d been hot, hard, and possessed a butt that I wanted to bite like the last chocolate chip cookie in my stash. He’d also skipped out of town faster than a villain in a B movie, leaving me woefully unsatisfied. I’d chalked the whole incident up to a bad night stand and moved on with my life. That was before the news of a failed IUD. Before the plus sign. Before Jordan showed back up determined to make that night up to me. I didn’t want a baby or a payday or a sexy, stubborn man in my life.

Five coworkers. Four drinks. Three glances. Two fleeting smiles. One dare. A dare that will change my life. That's all it takes to send me plummeting into the arms of the mysterious Holt Hamilton. Behind his crystal blue eyes is a secret, one that screams danger but calls to me anyway. My name is Saige Phillips. I never walk away from a dare.

This story is simply amazing! And I don’t use that term lightly when it comes to books.

It has friendship love, romantic love, family love, pet love.

The main characters take things slow in their relationship and it works. They fall hard though despite that.

They have a big blow up in the middle of the book that you just KNOW is coming because it’s the main build up.

The author then takes you on a journey of them healing from this blow up individually and as a couple and it’s just poetic.

Now onto the narrators!

This is my first full Savannah Peachwood experience and I have NO COMPLAINTS! She is superbly talented!

Kas Vadim!!! Dude’s voice is Chocolate! Ahhh!!

Justin Hayes was my best friend up until the day he broke my heart and disappeared. When I find out he’s my new boss, I’m about to leave with my middle fingers held high. Instead, I stop dead in my tracks as soon as he steps into my office. Justin’s all grown up, and he’s even more gorgeous than I remembered. He was always handsome but now he’s the kind of man I really want to… get to know. But it doesn’t matter. I despise him. He says he wants to work together very, very closely, but I can’t let him anywhere near me.

The happiest day of Payton Lambert's life was the day she graduated high school and watched Bald Knob, Kentucky, get smaller and smaller in her rearview mirror. She wanted more for her life than a tiny town where everyone knows your business and you can't find a decent cup of coffee for at least 40 miles. Twelve years later an unexpected phone call in the middle of the night has her packing up her life in Chicago and racing back home to the one person she ever regretted leaving behind.

He’s bossy, moody, and overprotective. He’s also a pro athlete who needs to focus on winning games and staying out of the headlines. I’m fiercely independent and need a man like I need a second period each month. So when our worlds collide, I never expected him to be the one to jump in and save me. Especially not when my roommate disappears, leaving me with her baby. I’m clueless about babies - and it shows. Good thing Alexei isn’t.

It’s a slow burn love all the way through. You totally feel ALL the emotions with this glorious story!

The first time I met Ian Kemp in the sparkling blue waters of St. Thomas, I was six years old, and we shared a summer beneath the stars. The second time I met Ian Kemp, he was a shell of the boy I once knew. Turbulent and infuriating, he refused my friendship at every turn. Like me, he was a casualty of life’s cruelty, but we were planets apart. We’d both sought refuge on the island, hoping to find our anchor. Instead, we found each other and managed to reclaim our stars...until we both got swept away.

This story was not your typical love story. Nor was it your typical age gap relationship.

They were each broken in one way or another and that normally turns me off but Kate weaved a lovely story with these two.

I love that they were childhood friends and had that little snippet of history to enhance their initial rekindling of their friendship and start of their love story.

I hope we get Jasmin’s story next! She was so much fun!!

Maggie's mind is reeling when she discovers the guy she became tangled up with at Marv's Bait & Tackle isn't a stranger like she thought. The big snag: Sam and Maggie's chemistry is hot enough to melt ice, which makes keeping their secret far more difficult than either expected. Especially when one of them decides they want this arrangement to be more than just a catch and release.

Amy knocked it out of the ballpark with this one!

The characters are both stubborn and funny! She is young and naive about what she really wants out of life and love until she and Sam start hanging out and then the sparks fly and love blooms!!

I loved it! I laughed my a$$ off at the master baiter scene!! Ahhh!!

This story was amazing.

Focused on a single mother of a little boy with quite a birth defect. That however didn’t slow him down one bit.

Clever and witty at times and pulling on those heart strings at times.

The end made the entire story worth it!

I would recommend this to anyone ❤️❤️
