Hazel has left her husband who she is determined to believe is going to kill her. Her husband Byron Gogol is CEO of Gogol Industries and his favorite test subject is Hazel. Showing up at her dad’s trailer she finds his new sex doll wife Diane and her father’s antics at time are too much to take. Will Hazel escape her husband and find her own path to happiness?
At times this was really funny as the story progressed I found it too be a little much at times. I wanted to like this but had a hard time with a few moments in the story.

Shopping for a Baby’s First Christmas
Publication date: November 27th 2018
Genres: Adult, Comedy, Contemporary, Romance
My mother wants all her kids and grandkids to spend Christmas Eve at her house and wake up on Christmas morning together.
Sounds reasonable, right?
And it would be.
If it weren’t my mother.
My husband, Declan, is protesting any involvement, though he’s openly intrigued by the idea of claiming his territory by suggesting we have sex in my childhood bed.
And by ‘suggest,’ I mean make a series of really hot offers that make me whimper when I have to say no.
Wait – why am I saying no again?
Mom has turned her house into a Christmas showcase that makes Frankenmuth look like the picked-over clearance rack at Target on December 26. You know those crazy people on Etsy who make felted gnomes out of belly button lint and use … a certain kind of hair… to make thatched roofs on little decorative elf homes?
Those people are saner than my mother.
There is no force of nature stronger — and more emotionally volatile — than a fifty-something grandmother determined to create holiday memories.
Wait a minute. Maybe there is.
Only 99¢ for a limited time!
“Mmmmm,” I hear myself purring as I open my eyes in the big king-size bed at our Victorian B&B here in the Berkshires. A bed that I can stretch out in, because I smell coffee from afar and Dec isn’t between the sheets.
Neither is our seven-month-old daughter, Ellie.
I have the entire bed to myself. I might be married to a billionaire, but when you’re the mother of a clingy baby, this right here is true luxury.
A whiff of cinnamon accompanies that coffee and now I wonder if I’m dreaming. My naked body rolls against the high-thread-count Egyptian cotton and my legs are smooth. As I stretch, I realize my nipples are free. No one is touching me.
This must be a dream.
In real life, there would be a baby babbling “Da da da da da” in tones that either mean happiness, terror, hunger, or plain old pay-attention-to-me-now-because-I-am-the-center-of-the-universe, you-underling.
But not now.
In real life, there are always busy fingers exploring my ears and pulling my earrings and poking into my my mouth when I try to talk on the phone.
And in real life, little teeth bite down, hard, when my milk runs out.
So I must be dreaming, because as I open my eyes, a handsome, hot, endlessly naked man is smiling at me, hair tousled over his forehead as he holds two steaming mugs of coffee and says in a low, happy voice, “You’re up!”
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Julia Kent writes romantic comedy with an edge. From billionaires to BBWs to new adult rock stars, Julia finds a sensual, goofy joy in every contemporary romance she writes. Unlike Shannon from Shopping for a Billionaire, she did not meet her husband after dropping her phone in a men’s room toilet (and he isn’t a billionaire). She lives in New England with her husband and three sons in a household where the toilet seat is never, ever, down.

Cole knew the minute he saw Ebru she was his one, his only but he didn’t want to be tied down for reasons he never told anyone else. It was painful being in Ebru’s presence and with a few misconstrued words he kept pushing her away. However, after the temptation became too much Cole decided to lay it all out for Ebru.
Ebru knows everyone thinks Cole is the big airheaded goofball he acts like but there is also a sweetness to him that only she sees. Ebru is willing to take a chance with Cole but she has trust issues stemming from her past and Cole is determined to help her work through them. When his past though comes back to haunt him though will Ebru be willing to stand by his side?
This was the funniest out of all of them so far. I loved the beginning to middle but once Cole and Ebru got serious it took a different tone a little bit. He is still adorable and full of fun, but Ebru you can’t quite figure out she is more go with the flow. Great story, full of laughter.

With the Old King’s death, his sons have started off their quest to take the throne by killing one another and seeking out the prophesied Queen who is but a farm girl. Keely Smythe is more though she is a Blacksmith and when the Amichai and her long lost sister arrive claiming that Beatrix is the Queen from the prophesy all hell breaks loose. Caid, a surly man who Keely knows there is more too catches her interest but her main focus is protecting her family. The prophesy though is not all it seems to be and Keely finds herself in the brunt of everything swirling around her.
There is so so much more to this story that I cannot even delve into. Keely is a heroine you truly want to know. Caid is perfect for Keely. Filled with humor, action and several surprises. I would reread this book in a heartbeat. Thoroughly entertaining.
