Title: Driving Me Wild
Author: Mia Carter
Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Driving Me Wild:

I never in a million years thought that finding a lost pair of keys would lead to adventure.

All my life, I’ve been perfectly average. Compared to the rest of my high-achieving, type-A family, it feels impossible to stand out. While I’d love to make my big artistic dreams happen, I’m kind of stuck, thanks to a bunch of lame things like “affordable rent” and “keeping the internet on.” Dreaming doesn’t pay the bills. Freelance design work and part-time rideshare driving does. And it’s nice, for the most part. Finding a passenger’s thumb drive usually means reporting, returning, yay-hurrah-good-job-me. Except this time.

This time, I put the thumb drive in my computer. Hey, I’m just trying to be helpful! Suddenly a chat window pops up and the owner of the drive is bribing me to fly halfway across the world. Today. Turns out he’s the super hot fare I haven’t been able to stop thinking about…who just so happens to be Logan Weiss—the crazy-hot 29-year-old billionaire known as “the most eligible bachelor in tech”. What the hell am I even doing?

Title: The Daddy Coach
Author: Karen Muir
Genre: Contemporary Romance

About The Daddy Coach:

Hoping to vindicate her brother, botanist Gina Dunn poses as a nanny to the man she believes framed him. Even though she grew up in a dysfunctional home, how hard can it be looking after twin four-year-old boys? If she can nurture rare orchids, surely she can handle this.

Instant fatherhood hits contractor Will Sinclair hard when his twin sons he didn’t know existed come to live with him. The rebellious boys reject Will as their real dad, forcing him to turn to Gina, his new nanny, for her “expert” help.

Interacting with Will and his boys as a “daddy” coach, Gina starts to crave the family she’s always longed to have. But Will’s reaction when he learns of her deception isn’t her biggest fear––one of two men she loves is lying…

About Karen Muir:

A sense of humor was a must when Karen taught elementary grades and Head Start, and she’s always loved books and movies that make her laugh. Karen’s Fish Out of Water series from Entangled Publishing deals with heroines thrust outside their comfort zones. Their first meetings with their heroes tend to be quirky. An English Lit major at the University of Washington, Karen now reads mostly genre novels. Contemporary and historical romances and mysteries are my favorites. She loves camping–out in the wilds and close to nature–with all the comforts of our motor home. Sitting by a clear mountain stream with a good book to read is her idea of heaven.

#MFRWHooks “…yet, she smiled.” #MFRWorg #amreading #KindleUnlimited


Happy Wednesday everyone.
I hope you enjoyed last week’s snippet from ” Journey to her Dreams “. Today I’d like “to hook you” with another teaser.
ENJOY ♥

Today’s Hook:

With an almost feral scowl, he forcefully rejected her in return, the movement so sudden and fierce as he pushed her against the wall, she not only hit her head, but it also drove all the air from her lungs.
Despite the pain, relief rushed through her as she watched him walk into the bathroom. Taking a couple of small, easy breaths, she retreated into the guest room down the hallway, where she took a little teddy bear out of the bottom drawer in the cupboard and sat on the bed. Cradling her companion, she ignored the tears that trickled down her face.
She quickly swiped her cheeks when he came towards the room and carefully placed her teddy bear back into the rear of the drawer underneath a pink and yellow baby blanket.
“How about I prepare us a nice dinner?” he offered, the expressionless look on his face upsetting her even more.
Yet, with all the strength she was able to come up with, she smiled. It took so much effort and was as painful as what had just happened…yet, she smiled. “Sounds good,” was all she was able to say.

BLURB:

There must be a reason for her dreams…

Hollie Anderson, a young woman living in Tasmania, is content with life, even more so since she has met Jeremy. However, she has been having a recurrent dream that impacts her daily life, as well as her relationship, a dream that eventually takes her on a journey to Ireland.

Samantha Shaughnessy enjoys the success as Head of Advertising for a popular magazine in the Irish capital Dublin. Married to Padraic, she thinks she loves her husband, but when she meets Hollie under unusual circumstances, she needs to face the truth–and not just about her marriage.

When both women meet and find they share an unexpected tie to the past, will they finally be able to move on into relationships with the men they love? 

 “This blood-pumping novel will keep the reader hooked until the very end.” InD’tale Magazine

“Do yourself a favor and grab a copy of this wonderful book and fall in love.” (5 star review)

Mat is a sexy, tattooed New Zealander with a strong sense of family and duty and Tiffany is a woman with a past that continues to haunt her. Can Mat help her overcome her demons and move on with the next phase of her life? Come for the romance and stay for the breathtaking scenery. (5 star review)

4 stars – NEW BEGINNINGS is a very emotional read, one that is heartwarming as well as heart wrenching. It gives you hope in the act of human kindness and that good things do happen to good people. I highly recommend this book.

♥ Happy Sunday ♥
I hope you’re enjoying my latest WIP which is set near
Lake Tekapo, New Zealand.
Enjoy ♥

Lake Tekapo, NZ

For the next ten minutes she wandered through the house and checked the doors and windows. It was a beautiful house and the owner had decorated it tastefully like a mountain log cabin style. It was built and furnished with mainly wood. And she loved it. The rooms for spacious, most of them having a window bench to enjoy the view, and a cosy little bathroom. The fireplace was the centrepiece of the living room. Suddenly the thought of a cold night popped in her mind, but she remembered seeing a panel heater in her room. She had to check that out before she’d go to bed. She went back into the kitchen for her belated cup of tea and wandered upstairs where she found another two rooms. Loft rooms. She stepped over to the window and despite the darkness she was able to see the mountains in the distance. The snow glittered like diamonds under the starry night. It was almost hypnotising.

Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!

“FRESH BEGINNINGS” by Iris Blobel #Romance #oneclick #Bookreview #Kindleunlimited

~~  Fresh Beginnings ~~
by Iris Blobel

Amazon – 4 stars
It follows the love story of Jared Fraser and Ivy Bennett. Fraser is heading off on holiday from Hobart in Australia to America for his first holiday overseas and he is quite a workaholic it seems so this is a big deal for him to do. On the way he meets Bennett who is hitchhiking after leaving her boyfriend. This book quickly gets emotional with Bennett’s storyline with her mother who she hasn’t seen in years and her ongoing feelings for Fraser. But Bennett isn’t the only one with issues. Fraser is secretly wrecked with guilt about his previous relationship. His former girlfriend was seriously injured in a car accident after a row over him not wanting to marry her and live with her instead. Personally I could understand where he was coming from. After all in this generation most people do live together and they are just as committed as married couples. But I still liked the former girlfriend. She seemed a nice person in many ways even if she was controlling and tried to pressure Fraser into marriage by guilt-tripping. It would have been so much better if they had just agreed they wanted different things and left each other but then that wouldn’t have added half as much drama to the story so kudos to the writer on that one. “

Jared Fraser, a landscape business owner in Hobart, Australia, sets out for a holiday to the USA to travel along the Route 66 in a motorhome. Looking forward to his first holiday overseas, he’s excited as he prepares himself for the journey. But little could’ve prepared him for crossing paths with a beautiful hitchhiker.

Will he be able to put his past aside and grab onto happiness?

Ivy Bennett thought leaving her boyfriend would be the hard part. It doesn’t take long to figure out how wrong she was. As she struggles with making a new start in her life, the last person she expects to lead her to happiness is a laid-back Australian on vacation.

But she will have to say goodbye again? And not only to Jared.

♥♦♥  EXCERPT ♥♦♥

Ivy enjoyed being with Jared. During their drive towards the Grand Canyon he told her of his home and described as much of Tasmania as possible.
“I always imagined Australia to be hot with white beaches and beautiful water.”
“That’s up in the north in Queensland,” he explained. “We have spectacular beaches as well. Tasmania is a small island in the very south. The last step before the Antarctica, so to speak.”
“That sounds cold!”
He laughed. “It clearly isn’t Queensland.” Settling his gaze on her, he continued, “But it has beautiful beaches as well. And a wonderful marine life. And the mountains. We have some stunning mountains in Tassie.”
“Tassie?”
“Tasmania.”
“It sounds beautiful.”
He agreed. “Yes, it is. One of the best places on earth.”
Once they arrived at the National Park, they found a parking spot and walked towards the edge of the Canyon. She touched his arm to get his attention. Not that she needed to. His attentive nature drew her to him, and she couldn’t get enough of listening to him.
“I feel bad that you pay for everything,” she said in a low voice.
Jared waved his hand. “Nah. It’s only money and luckily the Australian dollar is—”
“Whether you can or can’t afford it, it doesn’t matter. I don’t like it.”
He stopped and turned towards her, causing heat inside her body. Her breath caught but she kept walking, yet, it took him only a few steps to catch up with her and, by way of placing his hand on her shoulder, to stop her.
“Wanna tell me why?”
Avoiding his stare, she lifted her shoulder in a casual shrug.
“A shrug is not really an answer, ya know that, right?”
Yes, she knew that. How could she tell him that she’d left Dylan because he’d spent all the money she’d worked so hard for? She didn’t want to be in the same situation, as in spending someone else’s hard-earned money. But deep inside she didn’t want to hurt Jared, either. She was enjoying her time with him so much, she wasn’t ready for it to end because of some silly pride.
Out of the corner of her eye, she spotted a little squirrel in the bushes and despite some guilt inside, it was a perfect distraction.
“Look!” she said louder than she’d intended. “A squirrel.”
With great relief, she noticed how her devious plan had worked. Jared quickly grabbed his camera and kneeled down to get the best shot possible of this little creature.
Kneeling next to him, she asked, “Don’t you have squirrels?”
Still trying to get that perfect photo of the little creature, he whispered, “Nope.”

#MFRWHooks “Please don’t.” #books #amreading


Happy Wednesday everyone.
… and welcome September … SPRING at this end of the world. Can’t wait for some warmer weather.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed last week’s snippet from “Echoes of the Past“. Today I’d like “to hook you” with a teaser from “Journey to her Dreams“.
ENJOY ♥

Today’s Hook:

Her body trembled. With angst choking her, she begged him, “Please don’t.”
He took her hands and lifted them over her head as he pressed his body against hers. “Come on, baby. Don’t be like that,” he insisted, tracing her jaw with his lips. “It’s been a while.”
“Please stop. I’m really tired,” she pleaded as she tried to pull her hands out of his.
He looked at her with a slight grin. “Baby, you’re always tired.”
Her efforts to push him away were in vain. His tight grip around her wrists didn’t give her a chance to move out of his arms. Disappointed by him, she dropped her head, denying him her lips.
“I love you, sweetheart,” he murmured.
She was barely able to speak and each word she spoke hurt her throat. “Please,” she begged again, nearly sobbing. “Please don’t.”
He lowered his head, flicking her earlobe with his tongue. “Baby, I want you.”
She knew then she was fighting in vain. He wasn’t going to listen. With his body pressed against hers, his breathing became heavier. Turning her head away even more from him, she closed her eyes as pain shot through her body.
