The Simple Life by Tara Sivec

Brooklyn Manning thought her life was perfect in every way, until it crumbled down around her and turned into a dumpster fire. With her pride wounded and her tail tucked between her legs, she leaves New York and goes back to her tiny hometown of White Timber, Montana. 

No more twenty-four-hour taco trucks, no more shopping at the best designer stores within walking distance, no more giving taxi drivers the finger when they angrily honk at her. She didn’t think it could get any worse. But then Clint Hastings walked into the room and insulted her. 

Her arch nemesis from high school is no longer a nerdy computer whiz, masturbating to pictures in PC World magazine in his free time (allegedly). He’s grown up to be a hot-as-hell cowboy, and she has no other choice but to be a smart ass right back to him. After all, it’s what they do. It’s what they’ve always done, and twelve years apart hasn’t changed anything. 

Only this time, getting under each other’s skin is a hell of a lot more fun than it used to be.

I adored this book! Tara Sivec brings all the things you love in The Simple Life. It's lighthearted, sweet, and full of humor. Throw in some fun side characters, cute kids, and pumpkins and you've got yourself the perfect book. 

Brooklyn left small town Montana to chase her dreams in the big city. She always dreamed of living in NYC and now she's living her best life. Until she isn't. Being back in White Timber was never in her plans. What's a girl to do without 24 hour access to anything she could possible want? 

Brooklyn needs a job. She goes in expecting to manage employee's from her best friend's family's pumpkin farm. Let's just say it's not what she expected, at all. Another thing she didn't expect is the fact that her high school crush is no longer the geeky computer boy. He's full on man now. A very hot man that has returned from Silicon Valley to run the pumpkin farm. 

Clint has always bickered with Brooklyn. Their relationship is complicated. The last thing he expects is for her to be back in town. Much less, her to be working on his pumpkin farm.

Can Brooklyn remember that the simple life can actually be better than the fast paced city life? I highly recommend this sweet story. You'll fall in love with not only the main characters but all the side ones in this small town too. You will laugh until your stomach hurts with the humor that Tara Sivec is so fantastic at. This book is my favorite RomCom of 2018 and everyone should read it!

A few seconds later, the man I saw riding the horse out front walks into the room with his cowboy
hat-covered head tipped down low so I can’t see his face, carrying Mia in his arms.
Oh, screw you, ovaries!
No, I still don’t like children, but come on! Seeing a hot, manly cowboy wearing tight jeans, with his
cowboy boots thumping across the floor, and carrying a kid in his arms would make anyone weak.
Too bad he’s Nicole’s husband. Damn. I should have paid better attention to her Facebook photos.
Lucky, lucky girl.
And then he lifts his head and our eyes meet.
Wait just one damn minute. This isn’t possible. There’s no fucking way.
“You!” I shout, my eyes bugging out of my head.
“What the hell is she doing here?” he growls, setting Mia down on the ground.
My only source of happiness right now is that Mia presses her face to his jean clad leg and wipes
her nose back and forth against the material, leaving a trail of snot behind.
Clint Hastings. Nicole’s older brother and my arch nemesis growing up.
Whatever. I know I’m not a superhero in a comic book, but this guy has been the bane of my
existence since the day I met him when I was in kindergarten, he was in second grade, and he threw
a rock at my head. I kicked him in his tiny nuggets first, since he told me I couldn’t play baseball with
him and his friends because I was a girl, but that’s not the point. If this were a comic book and we
were meeting in a dark alley, I’d be holding my fists above my head next to a talk bubble that
says So, we meet again. Tonight I will get my revenge and you will die by my iron
fists! WHAM! BAM! KAPOW!
I cannot believe I was checking out his ass when I got here. There’s got to be a bottle of bleach
somewhere in this kitchen I can pour into my eyes.
“What am I doing here? What are you doing here? Aren’t you supposed to be off in Silicon Valley
becoming the next Mark Zuckerberg?” I ask, making sure my eyes stay above his neck and aren’t
tempted to head south and see if those tiny nuggets hugged in his tight jeans grew in size since the
last time I threw my foot into them.
Which would have been his senior year of high school, right here in this very kitchen, at his
graduation party when he asked me if I bought the dress I was wearing in the toddler section.
It was a LBD! It was supposed to be tight and tiny, goddammit!
And seriously, what is he doing here? Last I heard through the high school grapevine, after he
graduated from UCLA, he became a hotshot software developer at some huge company in Los
Angeles and hadn’t been back home in years. Not that I ever asked. Or cared. You know, just idle
chitchat after one too many glasses of wine and a friend request on Facebook from someone we
went to high school with.
“Awww, have you been keeping tabs on me all these years, fancy pants? I knew you always had a
thing for me.” Clint smirks.
“In your dreams. You smell like horse shit.”
“You look like horse shit,” he fires back, that stupid grin never leaving his face.

The Day I Stopped Falling for Jerks by Max Monroe

TDISFFJ RB Banner.jpg

Everyone calls me Lucky, but when it comes to love, I’m anything but.

The Day I Stopped Falling for Jerks, the first in the fun and flirty Jerk Duet from New York Times bestselling author Max Monroe is LIVE!


I have a long history of dating the wrong men.
You know the ones I’m talking about.
The beautiful, charming guys who are quite literally too good to be true.
The ones who are impulsive in love and prefer short flings over long-term relationships.
I’m talking about the jerks.
The guys who taste so good, but are so very bad.
After going through the most ridiculous breakup in the history of breakups, I thought I’d learned my lesson. I officially put myself into jerk rehab and committed to changing my ways.
But, let’s be real here, love is never that easy.
Especially when an arrogant, charming, he-devil of a sexy alpha man gets involved.
Aussie accent.
Tanned skin.
Muscular, surfer bod.
Gorgeous brown eyes.
And the kind of sexy smile that brings women to their knees.
Oh, did I mention that he’s also my best friend’s brother?
Yeah. This story, my story, it’s a real doozy you guys.
The day I stopped falling for jerks, I met Oliver Arsen—the biggest jerk of all.

Chasing my Forever by Heidi McLaughlin

Title: Chasing My Forever 
Author: Heidi McLaughlin 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Release Date: October 9, 2018 
Cover Designer: Sarah Hansen Okay Creations. 
Photography: Mae I Design 
Models: Alex Denning & Cherry Albrecht 

Music is his passion. It’s in his blood. Yet, Quinn James isn’t sure if stardom is right for him. His family wants him to join a band, and follow in his father’s footsteps but fear holds him back. He can’t explain it, and when he tries, no one understands what he’s afraid of or why he’s content playing coffee shop gigs where no one knows him.
Eleanora Boone wants to live her life, not the one her very southern parents planned for her, which is why she chose a college thousands of miles away. Now she’s faced with returning home or doing something that would defy her family. When an opportunity to visit Los Angeles falls in her lap, she uses it to become someone different.
California is everything Eleanora thought it would be, and even more so when she meets Quinn, the shy, reserved and brooding musician who’s the complete opposite of the guys she’s used to back home.
For the first time, Quinn’s smitten. The new, mysterious waitress has him wrapped around her finger, and he finds that he is finally able to open up and trust someone outside of his family circle.
But living a different life comes with its risks, and for Eleanora, that risk is a secret that has the power to destroy both of them.

Everytime I read a book in this series, I feel like I am going back home to meet up with some old friends.  Honestly, I think that is the way that Heidi wants us to feel.  She takes the time to make sure that when you walk away from the end of the book you want to read on to see what is next for our old friends. 
I have to admit, I knew about Quinn, but I didn't know that much about him.  We know the story about him and his mother from the other books in the series and we know about the situation with his  birth mother.  We know about his devoted he is to his sisters and the love he feels for his mom.  Other then that, I really didn't know too much about his.  What I found out is that Quinn is a complex man that has some deep down issues that just needs a push in the right direction.
Eleanora (aka Nola) just wants to live her life the way that she wants to and she really does not want to marry the man that her family has chosen for her.  She take a little trip to CA after graduation to delay inevitable horrible future.
Needless to say, I fell in love with Quinn and really wanted the relationship with Nola to come out strong.  I loved that the rest of the family had a strong showing in the book and that we were able to catch up (we also got a little glimpes of Elle being back to her old self).  
I can't wait to see who is next in the series!!
