Feature and Giveaway: When a Lady Kisses a Scot by Tara Kingston

Ten years ago, Mac mourned the death of the woman he loved. It’s taken years to heal his heart only to discover that not only is Rose still alive, but still in grave danger.

The only thing worse than losing her once would be losing her again... and he won’t let that happen.

ARC Review: Meet Cute by Helena Hunting

This book popped my Helena Hunting cherry, my first book by her and I absolutely adore this book. This book would fall under my classification as fluff, I love fluff, it’s quick and easy to read, it’s lighthearted with some deep emotional moments, and most importantly it’s funny. This is the kind of book that made me feel good when I finished it, where I just had to stop and take in the wonderful ending. For me this is one of those books that if I run out of books to read I could easily reread it, or if I am feeling depressed I could read it just to make me smile.

Kailyn and Dax met in law school and after the embarrassing first meet where Kailyn went all fan girl over the former child actor of her favorite sitcom they started a friendly rivalry between the two of them until one day it wasn’t friendly anymore. Despite Kailyn’s dislike for Dax as a human being she didn’t let that get in the way of still loving the show. Eight years later, Dax walks back into her life with his parents wanting to update their will, a few months later and his parents are dead and he finds himself the guardian of his teenage sister, Emma. Dax’s aunt is contesting the will and Kailyn is asked to represent Emma in the case. Kailyn has a soft spot for orphans and only agrees because she wants to make sure Emma is going to end up with the best person possible. Emma latches on to Kailyn and being around Emma means being around Dax and all those old feelings she use to harbor for him in college come back but also all new one for the man he became. Dax is glad that Kailyn is looking out for his sister’s best interest because that means he gets to spend time with her too and explore these feelings he’s had for her since college.

Overall, I loved this book, I loved the romance and the humor, the external conflict of the custody battle was a predictable but brought the story together. I definitely want to read more from Helena Hunting.

Audiobook Review: The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, Narrated by Julia Whelan

This is not my usual pick of storyline. I usually like romances and stay away from psychological thrillers but I heard so many great things about this storyline that I had to try it out myself.

This story starts off with Nellie the ex-wife. She is trying to rebuild a life for herself. Her husband Richard has moved onto a new love and has taken all their wealth with him. Nelly is living with her aunt, her only remaining relative. Nellie is barely holding on. She struggles with her new life as a divorced woman and her old life haunts her. Soon she finds out that Richard has moved on and becomes obsessed with his new girlfriend. The story is told from a first person point of view. We are seeing the story unfold through Nellie’s eyes .

The story is also told from Vanessa’s point of view. Vanessa is in love. She has fallen in love with Richard and he is a dream come true. She works two jobs as a waitress and also as a pre-school teacher. Richard is very wealthy and has introduced Vanessa to a lavish lifestyle. Vanessa is getting ready to marry Richard and start a new life with him as his wife. The story takes place in NYC. Soon they will have a house in the suburbs where they can start a family together.

Most of part one of the story describe the life of these two narrators and its in part two where we realize that nothing is what it seems! The story unfolds in a manner that it was one surprise after another. The intertwined storylines were new and refreshing. There were so many plot twists that I did not see coming! Even at the end where everything seems resolved, there are yet more plot twists! Although not in the romance genre, this story is a must read or hear!

The narrator is amazing. She really seemed to understand the sensitive twists and turns that were involved! I highly recommend and really enjoyed this story! I plan to read more by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen.

Feature and Giveaway: The Kissing Contract by Amy Andrews

Marshall Dyson wants one thing and one thing only: to raze his grandfather’s island to the ground. Everything is ready to go––except for the freakin’ bunnies! Hundreds of the furry critters hopping about and multiplying before his eyes. And then there’s the American Bunny League, along with one distractingly beautiful veterinarian, taking him to court to save them...

Dr. Augusta “Gus” North can’t believe the grumpy–and annoyingly hot–builder she’s facing in court cares more about demo-ing some cabin than the lives of 200 bunnies. But when the judge orders Marshall to stay on the island and help her rehome the rabbits – the entire month – she knows they’re going to need to lay some ground rules.

Like, for example, absolutely no kissing. Might as well go ahead and get that in writing. Sure it’s on a napkin, but that still counts.

How hard could it be to keep their hands off each other amidst all the fighting? Surprisingly, harder than wrangling 200 bunnies...

ARC Review: All Grown Up by Vi Keeland

I’ll admit that while I was super excited for another Vi Keeland book, older woman/younger man stories aren’t really my thing. I much prefer the opposite when it comes to age gap stories. But I still was excited to read All Grown Up since I love Vi’s stories, and this one was great! Vi never disappoints, and I think readers are going to love this one! 

Ford and Valentina captured my attention instantly, and I couldn’t get enough of them. I loved the chemistry and connection between them. They were real and genuine and very easy to relate to. I felt like I was right there with them on their journey and I loved how they handled every up and down that they experienced along the way. This couple is one of my favorites from Vi, and I really felt like Val and Ford were perfect together. 

Overall, another great story from Vi. She always captivates me with her unique and original characters, and I love knowing that she always has a fresh new story full of the unexpected whenever I begin a new book by her. Each story feels like an entirely new experience with characters I know I’ll love forever, and that was definitely the case with Val and Ford. If you are a fan of age gap romances, this is one you must read. If you are on the fence or unsure, I highly recommend you take the chance here on All Grown Up. You won’t regret it!

ARC Review: The Trouble with Vampires by Lynsay Sands

Yay Santo!! Book 29 in the Argeneau series brings us to a suburban Albany, New York neighborhood. The Enforcers got a lead that may end up being the mad scientist they have been trying to track down since he escaped from his private island off the coast of Venezuela where he had been experimenting on immortals and humans in a Dr. Moreau kind of way. After being held captive by the mad scientist Santo is ready for a swift justice. Petronella Stone is babysitting her nephew but soon after she gets there strange things start to happen someone tries to break in to the house luckily the neighbors intervene before anything can happen. The visiting neighbors, Marguerite, Julius, Zanipolo, Jason, and Santo are there to track down the mad scientist who maybe hiding out in his cousins house right next door and the attempted break in at Pet’s house is just too coincidental. They find out early on Pet knows about immortals due to a traumatic past experience which makes things easier for the Enforcers to protect her and her nephew, Parker. Once Santo realizes that Pet is his life mate and she already knows about immortals he thinks the rest should be easy, but it’s never easy!

Overall, this was another very entertaining read. Santo and Pet are hot, it gets very steamy and Santo is very deserving of a life mate. Parker is adorable. I foresee something happening with the Brass Circle in the future (finger’s crossed). This one wasn’t as predictable as some of the past books I didn’t guess what exactly happened and it was good, it had a very nice ending. I think this could be read as a standalone but if you need to read the previous one to catch up on the whole mad scientist plot you don’t have to go back to the very beginning just maybe back maybe six or seven to Runaway Vampire or Immortal Nights. I am also anticipating Zanipolo’s book to be next, I’m hoping. I always enjoy Lynsay Sands writing, her characters are always quirky and Pet and Santo’s have very dark emotional past they have to deal with which lead to them connecting on an emotional level as well as physical.
