ADD ANYTHING BUT LOVE TO GOODREADS

BOOK BLURB:

Another wingman bites the dust in this enemies to lovers story…

For the past year, I’ve been working my butt off to start my own coffee company on Whidbey.

A weekend in Cabo with sun, tiny bikinis, and vacation hook-ups is exactly the kind of tension relief I need.

What I don’t need is a bruised jaw, having to bribe my way out of jail, a hellion set on ruining my life, and my mother seeing a picture of my assets on “The Twitter.”

Caribou Caldwell is my worst nightmare.

Unfortunately, she’s also the star of my sexiest dreams.

What happens when a small town guy becomes the focus of a million fantasies? As Erik Kelso navigates his sudden notoriety, will his feelings for Cari turn out to be anything but love?

Anything but Love is the third book in the Wingmen series, a spin off of Modern Love Stories. Like all Wingmen books, it can be read as a standalone romantic comedy.

MICHELLE’S REVIEW

 

Man. Daisy Prescott has been publishing books like a mad woman. A mad woman I tell you!! Not that I’m complaining because I love her books. And the Wingman series- top notch. We’re talking real lumbersexuals here ladies. Not the phony stuff – the real deal. Men who live in the woods, work with their big man hands, handle their women with this amazing combo of rough and gentle. Sigh. I need one. Not want. NEED.
ANYWAYS.
This is the story of Erik Kelso. We’ve met him briefly but we didn’t know much about him. Well turns out- he’s young but he and his family deal with a lot more than someone his age should have to. With a growing coffee business and a father who’s fall from grace was not a pretty one- Erik and his brother go to Cabo to unwind for a bit. When Erik gets a little too loose and bares his ass to all the lovely ladies (and some gents) that are looking on- he doesn’t expect his ass of perfection to go viral. It’s basically this without the tighty whities.

And who’s at the heart of this ass scandal? None other than the woman he met in Cabo who haunts his erotic dreams- even if she was a pain in the ass- Caribou Caldwell.
When Cari comes looking for Erik to offer an explanation- he basically acts like a man child. I have to say, I found most of his antics down right hilarious- even if they were childish. Eventually he grows a pair and decides to deal with his problems head first. And naked. Thank God.

This third installment of the Wingman series has the same theme the other two did- the thing that makes me fall in love with these burly men over and over and over. The theme- strong women who bring strong and often stupid men down to their knees. Anything But Love does just that- Erik is strong and smart but when it comes to the heart- he’s all thumbs. And Cari is smart and sexy but she knows what she’s worth and she goes after it. The question becomes- will these two be able to make an unlikely match work at all?! You MUST read this book! It’s funny, lighthearted and just a fun story all around. A quick read -because you won’t want to put it down- Anything but Love is a perfect book to have on vacation this summer!
While it is a standalone- you are going yourself a disservice by not meeting John Day in Ready to Fall and the notorious Tom in Confessions of  Tom Cat.
I hope that Daisy is setting us up for Dan’s book next- but whoever it is- I can’t wait!!!

SYNOPSIS

Let me count the ways why falling into forbidden love is not my wisest move…

1. She works with me every single day.

Did I mention she’s gorgeous, sweet, kind and smart?

2. She works in my home.

Playing with my five-year-old daughter. Teaching my little girl. Cooking for my princess. Which means…

3. She’s the nanny.

And that makes her completely off-limits…But it doesn’t stop me from wanting her. All of her.

***

The other nannies in this city don’t call him the Sexy One for nothing. My boss, the amazingly wonderful single father to the girl I take care of every day is ridiculously hot, like movie star levels with those arms, and those eyes, and that body. Not to mention, the way he dotes on his little girl melts me all over. But what really makes my knees weak are the times when his gaze lingers on me. In secret. When no one else is around.


I can’t risk my job for a chance at something more…can I? But I don’t know how to resist him much longer either…

 The audiobook will release the same day as the eBook on October 17th and will be narrated by Sebastian York and Andi Arndt!

BROKEN PRINCE by Erin Watt: Book Release & Joint Review

unnamedBROKEN PRINCE – Book #2 in The Royals series

These Royals will ruin you…

From wharf fights and school brawls to crumbling lives inside glittery mansions, one guy tries to save himself. 

Reed Royal has it all—looks, status, money. The girls at his elite prep school line up to date him, the guys want to be him, but Reed never gave a damn about anyone but his family until Ella Harper walked into his life.

What started off as burning resentment and the need to make his father’s new ward suffer turned into something else entirely—keep Ella close. Keep Ella safe. But when one foolish mistake drives her out of Reed’s arms and brings chaos to the Royal household, Reed’s entire world begins to fall apart around him.

Ella doesn’t want him anymore. She says they’ll only destroy each other.

She might be right.

Secrets. Betrayal. Enemies. It’s like nothing Reed has ever dealt with before, and if he’s going to win back his princess, he’ll need to prove himself Royally worthy.

PEPPER & MICHELLE’S JOINT REVIEW
Pepper
: So I was dying DYING for this book to come out. And it got even juicier and more salacious than I ever imagined. Everyone needs this series immediately. Especially if you are a Melrose Place or 90210 fan. It’s so scandalous and delicious.
Michelle: I cannot put into words how much I loved this book. I know this had to be scary for the authors to write a follow up to Paper Princess which was AMAZING. But they did it. Cause Broken Prince is EVERYTHING. EVERY. DAMN. THING.

Pepper: It really was. Ok- let’s at least try and write something useful in this review. Ella drove me up the damn wall most of the book. I mean I get it, she was scared of getting hurt but it’s REED we’re talking about here. . I do love how she tries to see the best in everyone and the fact that she is a super hard worker and not really interested in a handout. I also love how she can take care of herself. She don’t need no man.

Michelle: I know. I do love Ella. I really do and I get why she was hurt in Paper Princess and I get why she did what she did and I even get her feelings through the first half of Broken Prince. BUT REED I LOVE YOU SO MUCH I WANT TO BE WITH YOU FOREVER.

Pepper: Are you ok there, lover?
Michelle: Yea. Sorry. I went to my special Reed place.
Pepper: Don’t even blame you. Reed. Is delicious. And sometimes stupid. I loved how he tried to win Ella back, it really showed a different side to him, kind and sweet and capable of loving someone else. I thought this was the best character development of the book. Aside from Easton. Although Easton’s development was different. But you know what I mean. I liked seeing some meat to his character too. That he was troubled and EWatt did such a great job or arching these two guys.
Michelle: Agreed. I think that’s what makes these books so good. There is so much detail and story and character development that it reads like a delicious and dirty movie or TV show. I mean I feel like I am inside the Royal Palace sitting on the couch, eating popcorn and watching the drama unfold.

Pepper: OMG please let this become a TV series in real life.
Also- I loved the twins and learning more about them. I also was pumped that they didn’t take Reed’s lead with everything and started seeing and acting for themselves.
Michelle: I agree. Again- this book just took all the Royals to a new level. Even Callum. I mean I was like kind of falling in love with him too!!!
Pepper: For sure. It sucks cause we want to tell you stuff but WE CAN’T!!  There is so much freaking drama and it is something we can’t discuss. Cuz A LOT goes on and you need to experience the deliciousness yourself!! Not only are there great characters and positive development, there’s shit characters and their shittiness comes out times 10. If you haven’t started this series you need to get on it now!!
Michelle
: Totally agree. If we keep talking we’ll give too much away and we won’t do that to you. So we will shut up and let you start reading. But keep in mind- you all know that Twisted Palace is being written which means that this book will end in the same toreous (yet amazing) way that Paper Princess did. So calm your tits about cliffies and whatnot cause this is all leading up to some fucking fantastic shit in Twisted Palace. Of this I am sure.
GO BUY THIS SERIES NOW!

 

PAPER PRINCESS – Book#1 in The Royals series

Read Michelle’s review HERE

From strip clubs and truck stops to southern coast mansions and prep schools, one girl tries to stay true to herself.

These Royals will ruin you…

Ella Harper is a survivor—a pragmatic optimist. She’s spent her whole life moving from town to town with her flighty mother, struggling to make ends meet and believing that someday she’ll climb out of the gutter. After her mother’s death, Ella is truly alone.

Until Callum Royal appears, plucking Ella out of poverty and tossing her into his posh mansion among his five sons who all hate her. Each Royal boy is more magnetic than the last, but none as captivating as Reed Royal, the boy who is determined to send her back to the slums she came from.

Reed doesn’t want her. He says she doesn’t belong with the Royals.

He might be right.

Wealth. Excess. Deception. It’s like nothing Ella has ever experienced, and if she’s going to survive her time in the Royal palace, she’ll need to learn to issue her own Royal decrees.

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE BOOK

Q: Is this really a YA?

We recommend this for young adult readers, age 17 and up. We think it’s a book that will appeal to older teens and those adults who are in touch with their inner teen, like us.

Q: Is there a cliffhanger? I’ve heard there’s an awful cliffhanger! Why’d you write a cliffhanger?

We promise that we didn’t set out to write a cliffhanger, but Paper Princess does end in one. The good news is that the next book will be released July 25, 2016.
