Goodreads Summary: Small town girl Sadie continues to live in the city after finishing university. She finds work as a journalist which ultimately leads to her passion of writing romance novels. Sadie becomes an accomplished author of many New York Times best sellers. At the beginning of her success she is picked up by Levi, a literary agent to represent her. They become close friends and business associates over the years. What happens when Sadie writes her latest novel about the love she has for him? Will she publish it at the risk of losing him as an agent and best friend?

My Rating: 5 Stars!


I was asked by the author to read this book and to give an honest review. This is the first book by the author and I have to say…she nailed it!

The story follows Sadie an author living in Toronto as she writes her next big hit and realizes that she is and has been in love with her literary agent Levi. She was experiencing a bad case of writer’s block when the idea hits her. She will write about the love she has for Levi.The only thing is, Levi is in a relationship and she isn’t sure how he feels about her.

I think there is a time in everyone’s life were they like/love someone and you are unsure if they feel the same. And you are never sure if the timing is right or if you should take the leap.

The characters in the book are easy to relate to and are very well developed and likable. You will want to be their friend and heck, it will make you want to read Sadie’s books!

This book will make you laugh and will make you feel good. The only downside is I wish is was longer! I wanted more of what happens at the end. We may hear more of the story because this is a series! Can’t wait to read the next one!

Check this one out, you won’t want to put it down!

Goodreads Summary: What’s ice-cold but hotter than hell? Rebounding with your ex’s older brother, of course. 

A perfect storm led me to this place. Ghosted by my fiancé, I was suddenly broke, heartbroken and facing eviction. Enter Mason Leo, the six feet and two inches of pure muscle and arrogance I’ve hated with a passion since the day we met. The man is cocky, womanizing and ruinously gorgeous. 

Worse than that, he’s my ex’s brother. And for the next two weeks, he gets to do with me as he pleases. 

I’ll explain. 

With both our exes – wait for it – set to marry each other in St. Lucia, I’ve agreed to let Mason pay my debts so long as I play his date. My only job is to keep my clothes on while I get my closure. Because as much as I hate Mason Leo, the man is a walking sex god. And in the name of revenge, he gets to take me out, show me off – dress, touch and kiss me with those wicked lips. It’s all for show, but every night in paradise with him brings more drinks, more drama and another temptation, so no matter what I do, I can’t stop reminding myself this: 

There’s absolutely no good to come from f*cking my ex’s brother. 

No matter how good it’ll feel. 

My Rating: ⛤⛤⛤⛤⛤

My Review: I am a sucker when it comes to books. I love it when the good guy wins. I love angst. I love forbidden relationships. 

I would kind classify this as a forbidden relationship.Because dating your ex’s brother should be off limits.

But what if you have a reason, payback. Who knows that you would actually fall in love with each other. 

Mason and Taylor are both pissed. Taylor’s finance has left her with nothing. In an apartment that she can’t afford, with plans for a wedding that was never going to happen. No explanation, no reason. Just a goodbye scribbled on the backside of a crumbled up receipt. 

When Mason shows up at her apartment and gives her the reason, Aaron, was getting married to another woma. Mason’s ex. So what better to do, but scheme up a payback so big it would make you want slap your mama.

Only they fall for each other. For real. That only makes revenge sweeter.

My favorite read of 2017 so far!
