WEEKLY WRAP-UP: June 24th

It was a busy release week, and a solid one too! I’ve been eagerly anticipating the newest from Elizabeth O’Roark for months, and it did not disappoint. The steamy office romance kept me on my toes, and O’Roark has now solidified her one-click status for me. The newest from Lucy Score also released this week, which I read and loved a few months ago. The small town charm and swoons is still memorable after all that time. I tried new-to-me author Jamie Wesley, and her light and easy fake relationship romance made a good series starter. Finally, I checked out the newest from Deborah Bladon, which wasn’t my favorite in the series – and it definitely doesn’t match the vibe of the cover.

If you read my Teaser Thursday post (found here), you know that there are some exciting books on the way soon! I’ll have reviews going up throughout the week.

If you missed any of this week’s reviews, I’ve got the blurb and rating for each below. There’s also a link to my new release list.


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Loved it

There’s a devil on my shoulder, and every Monday morning she announces herself. She’s this delicious flame in my chest, a flurry of whispered suggestions in my ear. Suggestions I ignore…because every single one of them is about Ben Tate.

Ben—Stealer of Clients, Evicter of Homeless Women, Nemesis. Sitting across from me every damn Monday with his lovely, smug smile and his too-perfect teeth, the living symbol of everything I hate.

It’s been my policy to avoid him, but when a case comes into the firm—one that could change his career and mine—I make an exception. It means weekends and evenings by his side. It means enduring his smirk and his smart mouth and never taking the bait.

Until the night Ben says “Beg”…and that devil on my shoulder decides to make a few demands of her own.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Light and sexy

Can these opposites turn up the heat… without burning down the house?

House-flipping sensation and YouTube star Maggie Nichols can’t wait to dig into her next challenge. Arriving in tiny Kinship, Idaho, with only a cot and a coffeemaker, Maggie is prepared to restore a crumbling Victorian mansion in four months or less. She has her to-do lists, her blueprints, and her team. What she doesn’t have is time for sexy, laid-back landscaper Silas Wright.

The man takes flirtation to a whole new level. And he does it shirtless…sometimes pants-less. He and his service school-dropout dog are impressively persistent. But she’s not interested in putting down roots. Not when fans tune in to watch her travel the country turning dilapidated houses into dream homes. A short-term fling on the other hand could fit nicely into her calendar. After all, Maggie remembers what fun is like. Vaguely.

As their summer gets downright steamy, Silas manages to demolish the emotional walls she’s spent years building, sending Maggie into a panic. He’s the wrench in her carefully constructed plans. With the end of the project looming, she has a decision to make. But how can she stay when her entire career is built on moving on?

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Light and easy

A reality star and a cupcake-baking football player pretend to be a couple in order to save his bakery in this sweet and sexy romance from Jamie Wesley, Fake It Till You Bake It.

Jada Townsend-Matthews is the most reviled woman in America after turning down a proposal on a reality dating show. When she comes home to lick her wounds, Jada finds herself working at San Diego’s newest cupcake bakery, Sugar Blitz, alongside the uptight owner and professional football player Donovan Dell.

When a reporter mistakenly believes Jada and Donovan are an item, they realize they can use the misunderstanding to their advantage to help the struggling bakery and rehabilitate Jada’s image. Faking a relationship should be simple, but sometimes love is the most unexpected ingredient.

Fake it Till You Bake It is a sweet confection of a novel, the perfect story to curl up with and enjoy with a cupcake on the side.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Not my favorite

I called the police on my cocky, condescending neighbor last night.
Today I found out he’s my new billionaire boss.


My neighbor could win an award for being the rudest man in New York City.

It wouldn’t kill him to hold the elevator for me when I’m running late.

He also plays music way too loud, entertains a lot, and is constantly knocking on my door for no good reason.

Whenever I do answer, I tell him to get lost.

His response is always the same – his signature smirk and a wink.

He tosses me a goddamn wink because he knows he’s that good-looking.

Last night, he had a party.

I’m all for having fun, but when it dragged on past midnight, I went next door and asked the arrogant jerk to tone it down.

He offered me a drink and told me to lighten up.

Lighten up?

I did what any woman who needed to sleep would do. I called the police, hoping they could get him to shut up.

It worked… until this morning.

I just arrived for my first day at my new job.

It might also be my last because I just caught sight of my ridiculously handsome boss, and this time, he’s not wearing handcuffs.
