Synopsis:

Players gonna play,
but can a wild, untamable, alpha-billionaire player
fall in love?

Meet the most irresistible billionaire of all-time in one sexy, steamy, downright hilarious, and binge-worthy romantic comedy collection (all for the price of one novella, too!).

This collection includes the following three books:


*Banking the Billionaire
*Banking Her

*And a BRAND-NEW novella, Crazy Fluffing Love


Banking the Billionaire

Uninhibited. Sarcastic. Confident. Beautiful.
With a thriving photography career that allows her to travel all over the world and capture the hottest of men behind her camera lens, Cassie Phillips is the woman who can’t be tamed.

Adrenaline-junkie. Jokester. Billionaire. Hot-as-sin.
At six-foot-five, with muscles for days, and that perfect playful smile, Thatcher Kelly is the kind of man you don’t want to deny.

Wild for wild.
Prank for prank.
The two most unlikely of people may be the only ones to see that some personality traits only run skin deep.

Uncensored. Hilarious. And too damn hot to put into words.
Grab a fan and get ready for one hell of a ride because when the opposite of opposites attract, things are bound to get a little messy.

Banking Her

Thatch and Cassie have finally found their perfect balance of good and sweet, crazy and playful, and most importantly, hot and insatiable.

But what happens when they’re faced with a surprise neither of them plotted or schemed?

While Cassie seems to be taking everything in stride, Thatch can’t stop himself from worrying about every little thing revolving around the woman he loves.

How does a man handle that kind of anxiety?

Doing the only thing he can to ease his mind without pushing away the woman he loves, Thatch proves that once again, when it comes to him and Cass, you’ll never see what’s coming.

Crazy Fluffing Love

MISSING PERSON
Name: Thatcher Kelly
Age: Mid-thirties
Height: 6 foot 5 inches
Weight: A very sexy, lean, and muscular 250 pounds
Last seen: Panama City Beach, Florida
Important Note: This guy is a real good-looking motherfluffer.

Look, I know this might seem a little over the top to already prepare for my face to be plastered all over Missing Persons flyers, but trust me, it’s not.

My pregnant wife Cassie—whose hormones are swinging like a fluffing pendulum—has decided that we need a honeymoon.

Right the F now.

She wants us to go on a celebratory “spring break,” we-just-got-married vacation to none other than Panama City Beach, Florida. But the only problem is, it’s not spring.

It’s not even summer.

It’s October, my crazy-hot wife is pregnant, and things are starting to get really fluffing weird.

If you’re reading this, send help and plan a really nice memorial for my very super, beloved, *ahem* male member, who, for the sake of public decency, shall remain nameless. I’m not entirely sure he’s going to make it out alive.


Charming Billionaire: The Thatcher Kelly Collection is a collection of two books from Max Monroe’s Billionaire Bad Boys series (Banking the Billionaire #2, Banking Her #2.5) and a brand new novella. These new billionaire collections are great for readers who have not yet enjoyed the series. You get more bang for you buck with all the novellas included. Past readers won’t want to miss those new novellas either. They’re fluffing funny! So what did I think about each book individual? I’m going to give you a short review for each book with a link to my original reviews for the first two books.

Banking the Billionaire is one of my all time favorite romantic comedies and my top favorite Max Monroe book. Thatch and Cassie have a hilarious relationship revolving around pranks, pets, and an insane attraction to each other. It’s a book that made me LOL many times. You can read my original review here.

Banking Her is a novella that continues Thatch and Cassie’s story. It made me fall further in love with this crazy couple. It also gave me a look at the start of the next couple’s romance, which was fun. You can read my original review here.

Crazy Fluffing Love is the new novella in this series. It comes after Banking Her and was a hilarious honeymoon trip planned by crazy Cassie. It was packed with laughs and a whole lot of fun. I don’t think I will ever get tired of new material for these two. Thatch and Cassie’s personalities are so big that the sky is the limit for all the crazy fun shenanigans these two can get into with each other. This novella cemented why they’re still my favorite Max Monroe couple.

Review: The Temporary Roomie (Sarah Adams)

The Temporary Roomie
Author: Sarah Adams
Publication Date: April 1, 2021
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Synopsis:

What happens when you have to play nice with your greatest enemy? Revenge.

Drew Marshall may have let me move into his spare bedroom while my house is being renovated, but don’t think for one second his kindness comes without strings. Big, ugly, fake relationship strings.

That’s okay, though, Dr. Andrew. I’ll agree to your terms, move into your house, and act like
your girlfriend when the big day comes; but I also plan to make your life miserable—make you pay for what you did to me.

I may not be good at forgiving or forgetting, but I’m excellent at getting even.

Get ready to laugh until you cry with this sizzling, hilarious, closed-door romantic comedy!


Sarah Adams’ books keep getting better and better. The Temporary Roomie made me laugh harder than I have in a long time. It was an enemies to more romance/prank war I couldn’t get enough of. Jessie and Drew hate each other for all the wrong reasons, and what they’re willing to do to annoy each other is hilarious and almost endless. Underneath all that “hate” is a sizzling chemistry and a surprising tenderness. I loved every minute of their shenanigans romance.

Review: Oops, I’ve Fallen (Max Monroe)

Oops, I’ve Fallen
Authors: Max Monroe

Publication Date: March 27, 2021
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Note: This review is for an ARC and is my unbiased opinion.

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★

Synopsis:

If my time with Ryan Miller were a hit track on the radio, I imagine the lyrics would go something like this…

“We’re so different, but they say opposites attract. Oops, I’ve fallen, and my heart doesn’t want to come back.”

But, holy bingo night, is my attraction to the sexy, broody businessman so much more complicated than the chorus of a song.

His dad lives right next to my mom, and after the two of them suffered an unexplained accident while taking down holiday decorations, both Ryan and I were forced to become the only thirtysomething residents of Sunny Creek Village Independent Senior Living Community.

Temporarily moving in might seem like overkill for a fractured tailbone and a severely pulled groin muscle, but believe me, when your mom is as wild as mine and your dad is as cantankerous as Ryan’s, they need supervision to ensure they stick to doctor’s orders.

Constantly thrown together by the antics of our crazy parents and the tough-as-nails community enforcer, Betty Matthews, Ryan and I formed an alliance for the sole purpose of survival.

But I never expected to be so interested in finding out what he was hiding beneath his grumpy, serious demeanor. More than that, I never dreamed what I found would be the kind of man women sell their souls to the devil for.

Unfortunately, our little one-hit wonder on the airwaves has more to say before it comes to an end.

Although, finishing the outro to this song is a real doozy…

Tell me…what lyric rhymes with Oops, I’ve fallen for my future stepbrother?


I’m one of the first people to complain about illustrated covers on romance novels, but I have to give Max Monroe (and Banana) credit with this one. It’s perfect for this romantic comedy set in a Florida retirement community. As for what’s inside those pages…

Oops, I’ve Fallen was just as funny inside as out. Max Monroe took a senior living community and its inhabitants to a whole new, hilarious level. The hijinks Sal and Stella got into with their frenemies kept me laughing. Those two were spunky for 70-somethings. I loved that they got chapters here and there. They didn’t eclipse our main couple, Ryan and Carly. The just added to the fun.

Ryan and Carly couldn’t have been more opposite personality wise, so I loved how their parents were what brought them together. The way they shared in the torture their parents brought upon them was so entertaining. It made the sizzling chemistry they had even more fun. I loved how they fell in love.

The one thing I didn’t quite buy was what shook things up and caused the problem. These characters were mature enough to know it wasn’t a big deal, so it felt like a huge overreaction. It did make for some funny moments, though. I guess I can’t complain to much about it.

What else to say? Honestly, Oops, I’ve Fallen was just a ton of fun. I laughed. I smiled. I swooned. What else could you possible want from a romantic comedy? Max Monroe have once again brought the funny in the best of ways.

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ½

Synopsis:

What I thought I’d get on Valentine’s Day: a card.
What I got on Valentine’s Day: a blind date with my brand new roommate.

Let it be known that I, Saylor Green, am wholeheartedly against blind dating. I think it’s superficial, unnecessary, and designed wholly to force people into relationships they aren’t ready for.
It’s me. I’m people.
So when Dylan Parker takes the seat across from me, I’m ready to dismiss him at one glance.
The problem? He’s hot and funny and sweet and the exact kind of guy I read about in the romance novels I sell like hotcakes in my bookstore.
He’s also my new roommate.
Who likes to walk around in his sweatpants and peer over my shoulder and comment on all my online dating escapades.
When he offers to help me flirt my way to dating success, I’m all for it.
But what am I supposed to do when the only person I want to flirt with is… Dylan?


The Bookworm’s Guide to Flirting was one of those quick, light reads. There was little drama and a bunch of moments to make me laugh. Usually in romances, the hero is the grumpy one. I loved that in this one Saylor was the grump. Her sarcastic, negative personality made things very entertaining. Dylan seemed to be a go with the flow type of guy. I loved how he put up with and sometimes antagonized Saylor. Their interactions as roommates were pretty hilarious. I also enjoyed the moments that led up to their coupledom. This was a great ending to this series and I loved how much fun I had reading it.

Review: Hot Stuff (Max Monroe)

Hot Stuff
Authors: Max Monroe
Publication Date: February 20, 2020
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Note: This review is for an ARC and is my unbiased opinion.

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Synopsis:

Have you ever seen a fireman who’s so insanely sexy you’d actually consider DIY-ing a little at-home arson just so he’d show up at your front door?

Dramatic, I know, but hear me out.

Chiseled hot body, bright blue eyes, and the sexiest smile I’ve ever seen—the first time I saw Garrett Alexander in my exam room, it took everything inside me not to do something crazy like mount him during his yearly physical.

Not only is he a total babe, but he’s charming, hilarious, and the kind of single dad that would make your ovaries explode—the total freaking package.

I know you’re probably wondering, What in the heck are you waiting for, girl? Go get yourself a fireman!

But, see, there’s one teeny-tiny (read: huge) problem—if we got together, we’d have to keep our relationship a secret.

I know. Who even am I? Some heroine in a freaking forbidden romance novel?

Let me guess, now you’re probably thinking…Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Don’t do it, girl. Don’t fall for the sexy, off-limits man. It’s not worth it.

Well, too late. I already went and did it.

And I have a feeling this fire of ours is going to go up in a big, mushroom-cloud-worthy, ball of figurative smoke.


I don’t know how Max Monroe come up with their comedic goodness, but man, they know how to make me laugh! Hot Stuff had me cackling from start to finish. From the opening scene when Garrett and Lauren meet to Petco to Fat Frank and on and on. I could not get enough of Max Monroe’s hilarious hijinks with this couple.

Not only was Hot Stuff laugh out loud funny, it was super sweet. Garrett’s a firefighter who is also a single dad. He’s got a job that doesn’t always allow him to put the important people in his life first, but he makes up for it when he can. The way that man loved his children, the good and the bad, made me smile. The way he talked about them was how I would hope to hear any parent talk about their children. Then, there was how he treated Lauren. The two of them were so freaking adorable. Lauren was a smart cookie being a doctor and all, but she was also entertaining in a way I wasn’t expecting. Her personality combined with Garrett’s was entertainment gold. I loved their love!

I know this is a gush fest, but I loved every minute of this book. Loved isn’t even a strong enough word. It was just so much fun to read and swoon over. I don’t know how Max Monroe keeps on coming up with all these amazing couples and romances between them, but I hope they never stop. It’s becoming harder and harder to pick a favorite couple from all of their books combined.

Review: Swoony Billionaire: The Kline Brooks Collection (Max Monroe)

Swoony Billionaire: The Kline Brooks Collection
Series: Billionaire Bad Boys
Authors: Max Monroe
Publication Date: January 31, 2021
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Note: This review is for an ARC and is my unbiased opinion.

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 

Synopsis:

Meet the swooniest billionaire of all time in one awesome and hilarious romantic comedy collection (all for the price of one novella, too!)

This collection includes the following three books:
*New York Times bestseller Tapping the Billionaire
*Tapping Her
*And a BRAND-NEW novella, Be My Billionaire Valentine

This is the perfect indulgence for new and old readers alike!

A favorite book boyfriend of all time, Kline Brooks sets a different kind of standard.

If you’re the type of woman that prefers crotch selfies to small talk, this hero isn’t for you.

If you HATE laughing, this hero isn’t for you.

If you want your male leads to grunt, thrust like jack rabbits, and have one-track minds that prefer a nice pair of t*ts to brains every hour of every day for the rest of forever, well…then, this hero still isn’t for you.

But.

If you enjoy a good swoon, a hearty laugh, witty banter, some hot as f*@% f*@%ing, and an awesome HEA, then dive into this collection and never come up for air.

Kline Brooks isn’t the kind of man you regret. 


If you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Kline Brooks and Georgia Cummings, you are missing out. I have been a fan of their books and the Billionaire Bad Boys series for years now. When I saw they were releasing the series in collections for each couple, I knew this would benefit readers who hadn’t yet read the books. That’s because this collection combines Tapping the Billionaire (Billionaire Bad Boys, #1) and the novella Tapping Her (Billionaire Bad Boys, #1.5) all in one place for one cost. As an added bonus, you get the brand new novella Be My Valentine along with them!

That’s really what I’m here to review — Be My Valentine. This novella was so much fun!!! It took us back to the early-ish days of Kline and Georgie, after Tapping Her. I loved their attempted Valentine’s Day celebration. I laughed so hard! (I mean, how can you NOT when Thatch is involved?) I also swooned hard, too. Kline is probably the sweetest of the Billionaire Bad Boys and it came across well here. The novella was a great addition to Kline and Georgia’s story.

If you’re new to this series and are curious about Kline and Georgie and what I thought of the rest of this collection, here is a link to my reviews for Tapping the Billionaire.

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ½

Synopsis:

What I expected on Saturday morning: Books.
What I got on Saturday morning: my ex-best friend and first crush in front of me.

Let it be known that I, Holley Stuart, do not give a single rat’s behind about pro baseball’s star pitcher Sebastian Stone.
I definitely don’t care that he’s standing in my bookstore.
Nor do I care that he seems to have forgotten about the last time we saw each other—senior prom, when he both humiliated me and broke my heart, albeit unknowingly.
Now, he needs a date to his sister’s wedding.
Don’t ask me how I ended up being it, because I have no idea. But that’s the least of my problems.
His grandfather is adamant we’re dating, and Seb isn’t in a hurry to convince him otherwise, so I have no choice but to go along with it.
The problem? The only thing I’ve ever faked is… well, you know.
I’ve definitely never faked my feelings for someone.
And judging by the way I feel whenever Seb looks at me, it doesn’t look like I’m starting now.


I can always count on Emma Hart to bring the angst-free, low drama fun and that’s exactly what she did with The Bookworm’s Guide to Faking It. This was a delightful romantic comedy filled with some of a romance fan’s favorite tropes: ex-bestfriends, fake dating, and best friends again to more.

I loved every moment of Holley and Sebastian reconnecting. I appreciated Holley’s resistance to letting Sebastian back into her good graces. I loved finding out what truly happened on the prom night that shattered their friendship. Even more, I loved how easy they slipped into best friends and the attraction that followed. Their chemistry was so sweet and entertaining. 

The Bookworm’s Guide to Faking It was such a good time. I liked it even more than the first book in the series, and that’s saying a lot because that one was older brother’s best friend goodness. I cannot wait for the next book in the series because I have a feeling it’s going to continue the tradition in being better than the last — which is pretty hard to do at this point.

Review: The Bookworm’s Guide to Dating (Emma Hart)

The Bookworm’s Guide to Dating
Author: Emma Hart
Publication Date: October 6, 2020
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★

Synopsis:

What I wanted for my birthday: Books.
What I got for my birthday: my brother’s best friend playing matchmaker.

Let it be known that I, Kinsley Lane, am one hundred percent against being set up with somebody.
And I’m one thousand percent sure that Josh Carter is not the man to find me a boyfriend.
I mean, if I’m so great, why isn’t he the one dating me? (For the record, I don’t know the answer. That’s just what the guy on the internet asked.)
Still, I’ll humor him. If I go on his little dates, he’ll teach my bookish, introverted self how not to be totally, completely, utterly, unforgivably awkward on every single one of them.
And all I have to do is fall in love with one of the lovely gentlemen he’s serving up for me on a silver platter—all of whom fit my very specific guidelines.
Simple, right?
It would be.
If only I could stop falling for Josh.


Have you seen the title and cover for this book? How can a bookworm NOT want to read it, right? I mean, I enjoy Emma Hart’s romantic comedies, but I HAD to read this one when I saw the title and cover. Add in that it’s a falling for the brother’s best friend trope, and I was sold.

What did I think of The Bookworm’s Guide to Dating? It was cute! I loved the way it was set up. Each chapter starts off strong with a fun rule for dating that is a foreshadow of what’s to come. The way/reason Josh tries to set Kinsley up on dates was adorable. The older brother’s best friend trope here took a unique spin, and I appreciated it. It was refreshing to read this trope where it’s the guy pining away for the younger sister and not vice versa. Plus, there were so many hilariously cute moments between Josh and Kinsley. Their romance was so sweet and they had great chemistry.

One of the things that makes Emma Hart’s books so fun is how they connect through friends and family. Kinsley is obviously a bookworm and so are her best friends. They own a bookstore together and I loved how the store and friendships were used. There was Kinsley’s brother and Josh’s best friend and the bond between all of them. Add in some crazy grandparents and ducks (Yes, ducks!) and it was all sorts of fun!

There were a couple of things that I did sort of wished had been changed up. They didn’t really make me like the book any less, but they did make think a bit. The first was there was quite a bit of Harry Potter related talk. Can we all just agree to move on from the Harry Potter franchise being the hallmark of being a bookworm in books? It’s so overused and overdone. Not to mention, when I see it in a book now I think of the controversy surrounding J.K. Rowling. It would be fun to see other franchises get shout outs. So many other book adaptations have come along in recent years. The second thing was that I wanted more time with Josh and Kinsley being sneaky. I just wanted to spend more time with them together because they were so adorable.

Overall, I had a great time reading The Bookworm’s Guide to Dating. It was entertaining in an upbeat way with pretty much no angst.

Review: Kiss My Cupcake (Helena Hunting)

Kiss My Cupcake
Author: Helena Hunting
Publication Date: August 11, 2020
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ½

Synopsis:

Blaire Calloway has planned every Instagram-worthy moment of her cupcake and cocktails shop launch down to the tiniest detail. What she didn’t plan on? Ronan Knight and his old-school sports bar next door opening on the very same day. He may be super swoony, but Blaire hasn’t spent years obsessing over buttercream and bourbon to have him ruin her chance at success.

From axe throwing (his place) to frosting contests (hers), Blaire and Ronan are constantly trying to one-up each other in a battle to win new customers. But with every clash, there’s also an undeniable chemistry. When an even bigger threat to their business comes to town, they’re forced to call a temporary time-out on their own war and work together. And the more time Blaire spends getting to know the real Ronan, the more she wonders if it’s possible to have her cupcake and eat it too.

As two neighborhood shop owners battle for business, they prove opposites attract in this outrageously funny romantic comedy from the USA Today bestselling author of Meet Cute.


I hate to admit this, but I am so tired of bakery romances that pit bakers against each other. There’s just SO MANY of them! They have lost their luster for me. Which is why I was SO HAPPY that Kiss My Cupcake had a different type of war/enemies thing going on. Instead of rival bakers, it was rival neighbors with different types of businesses having it out. That changed the dynamic and made this enemies to more romance all the more sweeter.

And sweet was exactly what Kiss My Cupcake was. I wouldn’t say it was true a slow burn romance, but it was probably as close as to one as we’re going to get from Helena Hunting. There was a lot of angry sweet build up and getting to know each other of the characters before anything brought them closer together. I loved the banter and tricks they played on each other. There were also some adorably hilarious side characters to go along with everything. All of that was exactly what I would expect having read Hunting’s previous books and knowing the humor she instills in her novels. It made Kiss My Cupcake so much fun to read!

If you’re looking for a light, fun, foodie contemporary romance, Kiss My Cupcake is one that will bring a smile to your face.

Review: The Match (Sarah Adams)

The Match
Series: What Happened in Charleston, #1
Author: Sarah Adams
Publication Date: May 30, 2020
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Synopsis:

Having worked for Southern Service Paws for a few years now, I like to think I’m prepared for just about any client meeting under the sun. I am dead wrong.

The day I meet with single dad, Jacob Broaden, about potentially matching his daughter with one of our service dogs, I learn a few valuable lessons.

1) Always set my alarm clock.
2) Single dads are way hotter than I previously thought.
3) It is possible to go from fantasizing about kissing someone to wishing they would be run over by a truck in a matter of two minutes.

Unfortunately, I don’t hold that opinion of him for very long. Not when he shows me a different side of himself—one that’s sweet as maple syrup and hot as apple pie fresh out of the oven.

Too bad this guy is so far out of my league that I shouldn’t even be allowed to enter the game. Jake doesn’t seem to get that memo though. And after a few days of working closely with him and his daughter, he starts looking at me with fire in his eyes, making me dream of something I probably shouldn’t…

A family.

“The Match is a feel-good romantic comedy! Perfect for readers who enjoy a sizzling romance without explicit content.”


I hadn’t heard of The Match until Kayla @ Book and Blends recommended it as a buddy read for us. I’m so happy she put it out as a choice because I absolutely adored it. Everyone remarks on how cute the cover is, but the story inside is even cuter. It’s one of those books I loved from the moment I started reading right until the very end.

What was so great about it? Can I say EVERYTHING?

It was humorous, adorable, and swoony. There were so many moments that had me smiling and laughing. Evie was a breath of fresh air. She was slightly cooky, but in a sweet way. Even when she acted on the crazy side, what could have been creepy turned out cute. I can’t even explain it. The way she was with everyone from her dog to Sam to Jake made me love her even more. I also appreciated how she stood up for herself against her horrible, wealthy parents. And Jake… Even when I felt like I should have disliked him, I loved him. He was such a great father, brother, and son. How he saw Evie made me so happy for her. Their relationship was so cute and fun to read about, and it had just the right amount of drama.

There was so much more to love about this book, but I’m going to let you read and enjoy it. I recommend you just that because I adored this book. Sarah Adams will definitely be making my list of favorite new authors of 2020.
