“A magical, joyful, delightful, sexy contemporary romance by a new star in the making!” — New York Times bestselling author, Marie Force

The show must go on, but the price of admission could be her heart.

Sick of her vagabond life in a Broadway touring company, Nicola is ready to settle down. She wants nothing more than to park her suitcase in California, put out feelers for local auditions, and leave her past firmly behind her.

Too bad her past comes knocking on her door her first day home. All six-foot-three, beautiful man of her past named Max. Stupid Max. The mistake Nicola just can’t seem to stop making.

Even before Nicola—fiery, quick-witted, beautiful Nicola—slams the door in his face, Max is in trouble. She will always be the one who got away. Three times. Which makes convincing her to play Titania to his Oberon a bit…awkward.

Though she has zero desire to re-re-rekindle an old flame, Nicola can’t turn down the chance Max is offering: a lead role with the West Coast’s premiere Shakespeare company. But when their first rehearsal kiss disintegrates into a passionate liplock, she’s questioning her sanity and tempted to jump ship—before Max can break her heart again.

Now it’s up to Max to convince her that the torch he’s been carrying is actually an eternal flame.

Note: I received this book for free from Sullivan & Partners in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I was not paid to write this. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

A Midsummer Night’s Fling by Eliza Walker is a second chance romance (or perhaps third?) that is filled with Shakespearean references. The main characters are after all part of a summer production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream by one of the premier Shakespeare companies on the west coast. A part of me questioned my desire to read A Midsummer Night’s Fling because I was one of those students that couldn’t get through a Shakespeare play without also studying the Spark Notes that went along with it. I do, however, love second chance romances and enjoy going to the theater (as long as it doesn’t come with an assignment attached to it).

June is upon us! Can you believe it? I’ve already been out of school for a year. It’s amazing how time flies.

For me, June is all about the mystery/thrillers, and since I am a fan of mystery/thrillers, I guess it shouldn’t be so surprising. Haha!

the long game with malice Ivory and Bone
1. The Long Game by Jennifer Lynn Barnes (6/7) – The Long Game is the second book in The Fixer series and continues Tess Kendrick’s story. I absolutely LOVED The Fixer. It’s set in Washington DC. There are mystery and thrills. & Afer the shocking revelations revealed in The Fixer, I can’t wait to see where Jennifer Lynn Barnes takes it in The Long Game.
