♥ Room For Us ♥ L.M Halloran ♥


 

 
Ethan Hart thinks I’m his maid. Too bad I need his money more than my pride.

The intense, arrogant author has booked my entire Inn to write his next fictional masterpiece. I have no choice but to put up with his demands.

Breakfast is a daily endurance test. Making his bed and doing his wash? A different kind of torture.

And that’s not even the worst part.

With his haunted eyes, frozen heart, and heated touch, Ethan makes me burn in ways I swore I never would again.

There’s no place in my life for him, nor in his for me. But six weeks together might create...

Just enough room for us.

It has been a while since we have had a new L.M Halloran story (and if you have followed Ms Halloran on social media for the past year, it is completely understandable that we haven't had anything for a while)

She has come back with a bang with Room For Us.

 Zoey and Ethan's story will have you laughing, smiling, frustrated, crying, and falling in love.

It made me want to buy a run down B & B and hope that my own Ethan comes to stay!

It is beautiful watching our lovelies overcome the crap from their past, and finding love. They and their problems are completely relatable, and they will tug at your heartstrings.

I really adored Room For Us, and I am looking forward to more books from Ms Halloran in the future.

✪ Replay ✪ Amy Daws ✪

 


 

  Not all players deserve a second chance… no matter how hot their first chance was.


Football club lawyer, Santino Rossi is known in the locker room as the two-month chump. For years he’s been on a mission to find someone he can share his basil plant with and cure him of his former playboy ways.

Tilly Logan is a fiery, Scottish lass who didn’t bat an eye five years ago when a smoldering Italian pulled her into a nightclub bathroom. He was dark, dangerous, and exactly the good time Tilly was looking for—even if he worked for her over-protective brother’s team.

But a lot has changed and when Tilly returns to London five years later only to find herself trapped in an elevator with the smoldering Italian, it isn’t a happy reunion. Especially because her brother blames Santino for her high tailing it back to Scotland in the first place.

Tilly doesn’t want a replay of past mistakes and reconnecting with Santino is playing with fire.

But if they keep their relationship a secret, it could be worth the burn.

Here we go - a "sports romance" without a sports star as our lead player.  We are in the sphere of the Harris brothers (Harris Ho and proud here!), with Bethnal Green's lawyer Santino Rossi, and Mac Logan's sister Tillly.

Santino is the man! He is the only other Amy Daws character who has come close to getting anywhere near the dizzying heights of my love for Hayden Clarke #MyHayden.

I loved getting into both our lovelies heads, especially when it came to learning about their past.  

Though I will say I a surprised at some of Santino's actions, as he is such a protector, and I was all "what the eff, man? What are you doing?".  However he redeems himself very well, and that is a good thing, as I didn't want to have to kick his ar$e hahaha

Papa Bear Mac comes across as a bit of a douche at times, but as we learn more of the demons our lovelies have dealt with, it is understandable.  Plus, his lovely lass Freya doesn't let him get away with that crap.

You can't help but need the fiery Italian and stubborn Scot to get through their fights, their worries, their pasts and get their HEA.

Ms Daws has also given us one heck of a set up for the next book in the series. Believe me when I tell you, you are NOT ready for what is to come.

Bring it on!


 

       

 

 She exhales a shaky breath and lifts her lips towards mine. 

 

I pause a fraction of an inch from her mouth and whisper, “Tilly?” 

 

“Yes?” her breath stutters as she waits for contact. 

 

“Are you about to kiss me?” 

 

“That was the general thought,” she huffs breathlessly. 

 

I slide my nose along her cheek. “I like that thought.” 

 

“Then why are we talking?” 

 

“Because…” I pull back and frown down at her. “I have some rules.” 

 

Her face contorts, and the mood is killed. “Rules?” 

 

“Well, just one rule.” 

 

“What?” she asks, annoyance dripping in her tone. 

 

I brace myself for her wrath. “We have to be exclusive.” 

 

“What?” She laughs, her face twisted in confusion. 

 

I shake my head. “I told you I’ve changed.” 

 

She blinks back in confusion. “So, what are you asking for exactly? To have me be your next two-month ride?” She chokes out the phrase. “Look, I don’t need to be another one of your two-monthers. I know you’re Mr. Monogamous now, but how do you know that’s what I want?” 

 

“What do you want?” 

 

“I don’t know…” 

 

“Yes, you do.”

 

“No, I don’t.” 

 

I step back, giving her some space. “Don’t think about it, just say what you want. Get out of your head.” 

 

“I can’t get out of my head because that’s when mistakes happen.” She crosses her arms over her chest and begins pacing in front of the table. “After everything I’ve shared with you the past week, you think a relationship with me is a good idea?”

 

“I think it’s a better idea than kissing you and not knowing when I’ll get to kiss you again.”

• Book #3 in the Sunshine Sisters series

★★★★
4 Stars

What happens when friends become lovers? Not what a wedding planner plans in a novel of unexpected romance by New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst.

 

Taylor Sunshine and Pierce Powers vowed to keep things platonic. They already have the best of each other: loyalty, friendship, and trust. Why ruin the perfect relationship? That kind of forever love isn’t in the picture anyway for a restless, aspiring artist like Taylor. Her sights are set beyond the horizon of Cape May and Sunshine Bridal.

 

The oceanfront hometown is part of Pierce’s heartjust like Taylor is. And it breaks at the thought of her leaving. As her closest friend since high school, he supports her desires, even if she must follow them away from Cape May. But when their defenses are down, all it takes is one impulsive, vulnerable night to change all the rules.

 

From old friends to overnight lovers, they make a new pact: explore a summer fling, no strings attached. But as the nights heat up and their connection grows deeper, hard choices must be faced. As summer nears its end, will Taylor and Pierce fulfill their individual dreams? Or are new dreams just beginning to come true?




We're back in Cape May on the Jersey Coast with the three Sunshine sisters who run their own wedding planner business.

Taylor is the final sister to tell us her story.
She was never supposed to be working as a wedding planner. She always wanted more. She wanted to travel. To make art. To live an amazing life outside of boring Cape May, New Jersey.
And after years of being stuck at home, she's finally seeing an amazing artsy future on the horizon. Painting in Paris... and so much more exciting things to come.
And then there's Pierce. Taylor and Pierce have been besties since highschool.
They made a pact that nothing romantic will ever happen between them. It would destroy their friendship.

Famous last words ...

Let the fun times begin ...
  
WHAT WILL HAPPEN WITH TAYLOR & PIERCE?
WILL THERE BE A HEA??
READ THE BOOK TO FIND OUT ☺

 ___________________________



I just loved this series ... so much!
And this final book is just as adorable as the first ones.

We so want those two to finally figure things out! Everybody knows they belong together!
It might take them a little while though. They're just too scared to lose their amazing friendship.

I don't want to say anymore - I don't want to spoil anything.
It was a beautiful and funny and adorable and sparky love story.

It's an amazing series. Perfect location! Great cast!

Also - I want to move to Cape May asap!
And I so want to see this whole thing on Netflix!!!

FOREVER IN CAPE MAY was such an adorable &  sparky & emotional & artsy & wedding-y New Jersey Beach Town love story! I loved it!
Run to your nearest amazon for your own Pierce - this one is mine!

You know when you pick up a JP book you are going to get a heartfelt, wonderful story that you are going to fall in love with.

But this time, I just didn't.  I like the characters of Taylor and Pierce for the most part, but as a romantic couple? Nope, just didn't feel it, at all.

I think it was because there was such a fuss made at the beginning about how there was no sexual attraction between them, the deal they made etc, that when they fell into the sex-trap, to me there was just nothing really there.

And I got so frustrated and mad at Taylor at times for things, that that also took away from the heart eyes feelings I should have been having.
 
Things did speed up and get better in the latter half of the book, but not enough to bring my rating up - sorry Ms Probst
