Eye Candy, an all-new opposites attract small-town romance from Jiffy Kate, is LIVE EARLY on AppleBooks, Nook, Kobo, and GooglePlay!

Synopsis

Vali Erickson is the classic middle child—misunderstood, underestimated, and overlooked. He’s fine with it. Really. The overlooked part is actually serving him well during this phase of life.

He’s in Green Valley in an effort to fly under the radar and regroup after a life-altering blow to his heart and ego. The last thing he’s looking for is a woman to warm his bed until one throws him to the mat and rocks his world.

Margaret O’Neal is an only child who has led a sheltered life. She’s used to being a wallflower. Her ability to blend into the background is what allows her to maintain her anonymity as a gossip columnist for the Green Valley Ledger.

Since the Ericksons moved to town, she’s never felt more inspired, especially with the newest addition. Vali Erickson is the definition of eye candy—devastatingly handsome with muscles for days—giving her plenty to report about.

The more Maggie observes, the more she finds herself wanting things she’s only read about in romance novels.

Admiring Vali from afar is good enough for her until their paths cross and she finds herself trying to stay afloat in uncharted territory—no labels, no promises, and WAY out of her comfort zone.

Will this arrangement be what finally breaks her out of her shell, or will her heart be a casualty of the Viking Invasion?

‘Eye Candy’ is a full-length contemporary romance, and can be read as a standalone. Book #3 in the Fighting For Love series, Green Valley Chronicles, Penny Reid Book Universe.

5- I didn’t see her coming, I wasn’t expecting to find her.
But, Dear God, I’m glad I did – Stars!” – Vali Erickson

“Greeting, Good People of Green Valley.” – Trixie and Tess, Green Valley Ledger

Margaret O’Neal has a secret.  She’s the voice behind “The Green Valley Ledgers” gossip and advice column.  Nobody knows her secret but two people.  Her editor, Sarah, and her pen pal and confidant, Everly.
Margaret would also say that she suffers from a “lack of social interaction” because her parents were older when they had her.
She was homeschooled. 
She went to college through online courses. 
She works and has always worked for her parents – O’Neil Feed and Fodder Store, and she still lives at home with her parents.
Writing her weekly column for the “Green Valley Ledger” allows her to transform from Maggie O’Neal, feed store employee, to Maggie O’Neal, a writer, and columnist.
It’s through Maggie’s column that she’s able to tell the good people of Green Valley about the <i>”Viking Invasion”</i>, and that there’s a new addition to Viking MMA -Vali Erickson.

Vali Erickson’s reason for coming to Green Valley is to get away.
He was betrayed in the most brutal of ways.
He’s hurt, heartbroken, and has come to his brother’s MMA gym to get away, lick his wounds, ground himself, and learn to move on.

As fate would have it, Maggie and Vali end up getting to know one another. 
They agree to have a relationship “with no labels” because Vali doesn’t know how long he’ll be staying in Green Valley, and he wants to be upfront with Maggie that his move there was never meant to be permanent.
Their chemistry is off the charts.
Vali is Maggie’s everything firsts. 
First relationship.
First time travelling outside of Green Valley. 
First Love.

This is a wonderful story of Vali learning to trust and love, and Maggie learning to get off the sidelines of life and follow her dreams. 
When she does, she soars.


I just want to say that this is my MOST favourite story yet in the series!
I totally fell for Vali and Maggie.
Vali Erickson if f#@*ing Perfect, and I LOVED, LOVED Margaret (Maggie, Mags) O’Neil’s character!

Amazing read and a wonderful addition to the “Fighting for Love” series!

Review: Rhythm, Chord & Malykhin by Mariana Zapata

Rhythm, Chord & Malykhin by Marian Zapata
Publication Date: August 21, 2015

Synopsis

Twenty-six-year-old Gaby Barreto might be a lot of things (loyal, sarcastic, one of the guys and a pain in the butt depending on which family member you ask), but dumb isn’t one of them. When her twin brother invites her to go on tour as his band’s merch girl, she isn’t exactly screaming at the top of her lungs with joy.

With no job opportunities pounding on her door, an ex-boyfriend she would still like to castrate, and no end in sight to moving out of her parents’ house in Dallas… it would be dumb to say no to the chance of a lifetime. Two bands, three continents, one tour. Spending the next ninety-plus days with three beloved idiots and eight complete strangers shouldn’t be a big deal, right?

If only the singer of the headlining band didn’t have tattoos… a great personality… a fantastic body… and if he wasn’t so funny….

Let’s be real: Gaby never had a chance against Sacha Malykhin.

Over the past 11 months I’ve been struggling with reading. You see I work from home as a ECE and have a licenced subsidized home daycare with the Quebec Government. I’ve worked throught the whole pandemic right from the start offering childcare services to frontline essential services. At times it was really scary because at the beginning, no one knew what exactly Covid-19 was so there was the extra stress of having people (other than family) in my home.

Alas, a couple of months ago I finally felt the urge (need) to start reading again so obviously I started by re-reading my favourite comfort stories.

Rhythm, Chord & Malykhin is one of those stories. Everytime I pick up this book I’m immediately sucked into the story by it’s characters, witty banter and amazing writing. I love the protagonists with all my heart. Gaby and Sasha are, and will always be two of my favorite fictional characters. Their story just gets better with the complimary secondary characters making it a perfectly well written story.

I just completed reading and listening to it for the 6th time. The audio version of the story is also exceptional. Callie Dalton (the narrator) does an amazing job of the capturing the characters essence and delivering it to the listeners.

If you’re looking to read an amazing slow-burn, contemporary-romance I highly recommend this book.
