Sure Thing Sunday – Sunshine and Whiskey by RL Griffin

Sure Thing SundayEvery week I am going to post about a book or book series that is a sure thing. This week it is Sunshine & Whiskey by R.L. Griffin. This book was laugh out loud funny and such a great read. I loved Megan Walker and can’t wait to see what’s next for this group.

Sunshine and Whiskey by RL Griffin

Sometimes the best things in life come from the unexpected. So if you lower your expectations, then you’ll never be disappointed. Sound cheesy? It is, but it’s also true. Clichés come from a grain of truth…like a man with a Porsche is compensating for something, or once a cheater always a cheater—you get the idea. Sorry, I digress. I’m supposed to be telling you what this book is about.

I’m Megan Walker, a lawyer at one of the hottest boutique law firms in Atlanta. I’m on the fast track to making partner and have my entire life planned out…or I did.
We all know how that goes, right? Best laid plans and all that.
Life just threw me a couple curveballs, so I’ve set out to take things into my own hands. By throwing caution to the wind and getting out of my A-type personality bubble, I’m learning more about myself than I have in my twenty-seven years.
Sound like a chick flick, doesn’t it?
It’s not.

Sure Thing Sunday – Crash by Stacey Brandon and Karen Bell

Sure Thing Sunday

Every week I am going to post about a book or book series that is a sure thing. This week it is Crash by Stacey Brandon and Karen Bell. I picked this book up based on the synopsis and I was not disappointing. I loved Charli from page 1 and found myself laughing out loud several times.

28206934

Crash by Stacey Brandon and Karen Bell

Charli has a plan for her life. It does not include the hot guy at table four. This is the first time she’s seen him at The Crash, the bar where she works most evenings. From the moment he arrives with his power suit, condescending friends, and unnerving stare, he’s hijacked her thoughts. It doesn’t help that he keeps finding ways to insinuate himself into her life.

Logan has a plan for his life. It does not include the quirky little waitress at the new bar his friends discovered. He has a lot of obligations and very little time. If he needs a female distraction once in awhile, she isn’t the type of woman he normally looks to. Despite all of this, she has become what he wants most of all.

Working to overcome all the things threatening to separate them won’t be easy. Can they find a way to meet in the middle if it holds the promise of happily ever after?

Review

This book was fantastic. So funny and fun to read. Highly recommend.

My Thoughts
Crash is the story of a cheeky waitress/author named Charli and her polar opposite – Logan, a lawyer. Their story is roll on the ground, get strange looks from your husband and dog, laugh out loud funny. The banter between Logan and Charli and all of their friends and acquaintances is so witty and perfect I found myself telling everyone to read this book. It is a short-ish, sweet, fun romantic comedy that doesn’t have a high angst factor or the campy quality that so many of other romantic comedies have these days. It was really refreshing to read the debut from Brandon and Bell. I am anxiously awaiting their next release. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next.

Sure Thing Sunday – Gaming The System Series by Brenna Aubrey

Sure Thing Sunday

Every week I am going to post about a book or book series that is a sure thing. This week it is the Gaming The System Series by Brenna Aubrey. This series is full of nerdy goodness, but also packs a huge emotional punch. I loved this series and highly recommend.

At Any Price by Brenna Aubrey

Achievement Unlocked: Geek Virgin

When Mia Strong, proud geek-girl and popular gaming blogger, auctions off her virginity online, she knows she’ll make waves. But what she will not be making is a love connection. Her rules are set in stone: One night. No further contact.

It’s a desperate step, but it’s the only way she can go to medical school and pay her mother’s mounting hospital bills.

Difficulty Level: Millionaire CEO

Adam Drake, the enigmatic auction winner, is a software prodigy who made his first million at seventeen. Now, in his mid-twenties, he’s sexy, driven and–as CEO of his own gaming company–he’s used to making the rules. Before Mia knows what’s happening, he’s found the loophole in the rules of her auction. Every stipulation she’s made to protect her heart gets tossed by the wayside.

She can’t tell if he’s playing her…or if he’s playing for keeps.

With her life hanging in the balance, Mia wants nothing more than to rely on Adam Drake, but he’s hurt her before.

You Must Gather Your Party Before Venturing Forth...

Now he has to choose between being the man who can save Mia’s life or the man she can love.

Sure Thing Sunday – Kylie Ryans series by Caisey Quinn

Sure Thing Sunday

Every week I am going to post about a book or book series that is a sure thing. This week it is the Kylie Ryans series by Caisey Quinn. I came across Girl with a Guitar when it first came out and I was hooked. Kylie and Trace are one of my favorite book couples ever. I love music books, but Caisey was one of the first that I read that had a country singer in it and that made me love it all the more.

Girl with a Guitar by Caisey Quinn

17774609

After Kylie’s dad dies in a freak accident, he leaves her with nothing other than her crazy step-mother, Darla, and the ability to play guitar. When Darla kicks Kylie out and she loses her job all in the same day, she hops a bus to Nashville determined to make her late father’s dreams come true. Waitressing and saving her pennies to record a demo, her big break comes when she’s asked to join a tour going down the tubes with once platinum album-selling country music superstar Trace Corbin. But touring with Trace is hardly a dream come true since he’s pretty much drinking his career down the drain. If Kylie can’t pull Trace out of his rut, he’ll pull her and her dreams down with him.

As their worlds collide, they’ll have to make the ultimate choice. Follow their dreams, or give it all up for love.

They say love conquers all, but for Kylie and Trace, it just might wreck everything they’ve worked for.

Evie Jamieson, a former wild child, is not only a headstrong, smart-mouthed trouble magnet, she is also a lead singer with a plan.

Jared Valentine is the older brother of Evie’s best friend Mac and also the man determined to make Evie his. They strike up a long distance friendship which suits Evie because she’s determined to avoid the distraction of love, not only because it doesn’t fit in with her plan but because twice in the past it has left her for dead. Moving to Sydney however, has put her directly in Jared’s path and he has decided it’s the perfect opportunity to make his play.

Unfortunately Jared, co-owner in a business that ‘consults’ in dangerous hostage and kidnapping situations, makes an enemy who’s determined to enact revenge. When this enemy puts Evie in his sights, Jared not only has a fight on his hands to make her his own, but also to keep her alive.

Sure Thing Sunday – Unwritten by Chelsea M. Cameron

Sure Thing Sunday

Every week I am going to post about a book or book series that is a sure thing. This week it is Unwritten by Chelsea M. Cameron. I won a Chelsea M. Cameron book in a giveaway and loved it. I saw the cover for this book and bought it right away, without reading the synopsis or anything and I am so happy I did. Thy synopsis just clinched the fact that I would enjoy this book. I loved every second and am an even bigger fan of Chelsea after reading.

Unwritten by Chelsea M. Cameron

22678179

Children’s librarian by day. Romance novelist by night.
British single father.
Someone else is writing this love story…
Blair Walton isn’t your average curvaceous tattooed children’s librarian. She’s also one half of bestselling romance author, Scarlet Rose. Along with her BFF Raine, she spends her nights writing books so steamy, she’s afraid they would shock her Southern conservative grandmother to death . . . if she knew about them. That’s why she and Raine write in secret.
On deadline for their latest book and out of ideas, Raine suggests (demands) that Blair find a guy and “do some research”. Declan Bennet has all the qualifications: He’s British, looks fabulous in a suit, has glorious blue eyes and gets bonus points for being an amazing single dad to his adorable son, Drake. But what starts out as a research project quickly turns into something much more. And Blair’s not the only one with secrets.
