The Consequence Of Loving Colton By Rachel Van Dyken

Hey everyone, I am ending April with a fun and hilarious romance read!

The Consequence of Loving Colton by Rachel Van Dyken

Milo Caro had not seen her childhood friend and crush since he shattered her heart with three words, Jason's little sister.

She left for college four years ago.

Now, she has returned home for the weekend for her brother's wedding. Among the people to greet her is Colton Mathews.

Milo had casually dated and eventually stopped comparing guys to Colton but she never got over him.

While greeting her brother he informs her that Colton's date for the wedding bailed and that she will be his date.

Things get crazy when Milo's ex turned best friend enters the mix and they cook up a scheme to make Colton jealous.

Will Colton ever see Milo as anything more than Jason's little sister or will she have to leave her past behind and not look back?

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK!!! The storyline was fun, laugh out loud funny, creatively sweet and had several twists! The characters were so developed it was as if they sprung to life. This is the kind of read that is so fast paced and memorable you will want to read it more than once!

Flirting With Scandal By Chanel Cleeton (Adults Only)

Hey everyone, I have a unique and fun read to tell you about. If you ever thought that a political read could never turn into a fun romantic read well do I have a shock and awe for you.

Flirting with Scandal by Chanel Cleeton

As the illegitimate daughter of one of the most influential senators in Washington D.C., Jackie Gardner knows all about politics, it is in her blood. 

The dirty secrets they keep, she is one. The games they play, her mother's legacy is built on it.

Politics may be in her blood but she is determined to make her own way.

One evening after work she decides to let her worries of the day drown in a drink at her favorite hotel bar.

As she turned she took notice of a man who was taking inventory of her.

William Clayton was running for Virginia State Senate but for the evening he was just Will wanting to enjoy the company of the woman he came to know as Jackie.

After a little flirting the two decide to head back to his place things get heated until she notices a photo of Will and her father and she runs like the wind.

Will has always kept his nose clean but when he walks into the same political consulting firm that Jackie is an intern at it might be difficult to not get dirty.

The saying goes, "a little dirt never hurt anyone" but in politics dirt can bury a politician alive.

I LOVED THIS BOOK! Chanel Cleeton knows how to make politics romantic and fun!
