#BookReview HAPPY ENDINGS by Chantel Rhondeau McCallister's Paradise Book 1 #romance

Happy Endings (McCallister's Paradise - 1)Happy Endings by Chantel Rhondeau

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This story really did have a Happy Ending! I love everything about McCallister's Paradise. It is a vacation spot (fictional) near the Hawaiian Islands where people can go to relax and get away from their troubles.

They have a spa, snorkeling, horseback riding, and lots of beautiful nature.

Only thing is, the people who work there, well, they WORK, and can't enjoy the surroundings because they have jobs to do, and no one takes work more seriously than Quinn McCallister, the eldest son, who feels he has to shoulder all the responsibility in making this paradise profitable.

Along comes Larissa Benner, a massage therapist who is a cancer survivor. She desperately needs this job to keep her health care benefits, but she gets off to a rocky start with the boss man, Quinn, when he is ordered by his father to "test" the new therapist.

Despite the rocky start, Larissa and Quinn can't resist each other. They have all kinds of adventures, but when push comes to shove, Quinn's sense of duty to his job separates them. Will Larissa's health hold up? Even more importantly, can she really give her heart to a man who will not put her first?

Happy Endings is an adventurous as well as heart tugging read.

Be sure to pick up Books 2 and 3. All Available NOW!

Jessica gets an Inner Goddess on PLAYING THE ROOKIE #baseball #romance

In other news, character Jessica Song, hospitality intern for the Cactus League Spring Training in Phoenix Arizona has new internal conflict.

Yep, Inner G, or G for short, sometimes referred to as "Spot" is haunting Jessica Song as she tries to snag her ballplayer, rookie Jay Pak Ahn, Korean fastball pitcher.

If you've downloaded Playing the Rookie before, please update your copy (Free, if you have a Kindle, configure it for automatic update) and tell me whether G annoys you, cracks you up, or you just want her to leave. Bonus if you like how she meets her demise. Shhh... don't tell anyone.


G looks up from her solitaire spread, You have to kiss a lot of frogs, Jessie, before you meet your prince.
I’m tired of frog kissing, you know. A girl’s lips can only take so much. Besides, frogs eat flies, and that’s plain gross.
Not if they’re Greek.
You know, G, Greek guys aren’t that great in the showering department.
She goes back to her game of solitaire.


Stop! Stop! Stop! Goddess guard dog shouts so loud my ears are ringing.
“No, go, go.” I clap my hands over my ears. “Go away—slut shame someone else, why don’t you?”
Oh shit. I said that out loud.
Jay’s eyebrows are creased and his face is long, eyes wide. “I, I didn’t mean it. I call you wild tigress because you’re powerful and stir me up. You’re not a slut. Sorry.”
He backs away from me and stands. “Do you want me to leave?”
Whoosh. My body goes from hot and heavenly to cold and hollow. Every spark and tingle and zing flattens like a deflated jump house.
“No, please, I’m sorry. I was just talking to myself.” I push my inner cock-block’s face under the mattress and give it a bounce.
Looking contrite, Jay gathers my hands in his and presses them against his lips. “I have not respected you. I apologize. Why don’t we start over? Let me leave now and court you properly. Should I ask your father for permission?”
“Puh-please, no.” I sweep his bangs from his eyes. “But you have my permission to court me and bed me.”
A grin lifts his cheeks and crinkles his eyes. “Then let’s get busy courting and bedding.”

I give up. I’m taking a licking and joining in. Inner G-spot spreads her legs. He better not forget me to tickle me plenty.

#NewRelease THE ACCIDENTAL WIFE by Simi K. Rao

About the Book:

From the author of Inconvenient Relations Simi K Rao!

If you enjoyed Inconvenient Relations, you'll love The Accidental Wife, a new contemporary romance from Simi K. Rao.

Some accidents are meant to happen…

Dr. Rihaan Mehta is a brilliant young neurosurgeon who has no inclination for love or marriage. According to him wives and girlfriends are annoying accessories that one can do without. But when his mother dangles the sword over his head in classic Bollywood style, he succumbs, and sets out in search of a bride who would fit his 'requirements'. But can Rihaan deal with what he gets instead?

Book Links:

Goodreads I I

The Accidental Wife is now available on kindle for 99 cents Only! Go get it now as the offer is for a short period only !!



“Another beer to calm the nerves?” A distant cousin who Rihaan had never the pleasure of meeting before, suggested with a knowing smirk.

This was followed by a loud burst of laughter. It was close to midnight, but the party had just begun at the usually serene Mehta abode in South Delhi. “Rihaan doesn’t need anything to cool him down. He’s going to be a full-on man tonight! Can’t afford to disappoint bhabhi, right?” This was promptly followed by another outburst of mirth.

Rihaan submitted to several friendly thumps on his back, returning them with the obligatory wry smile that could be interpreted any which way they desired. He didn’t care about their opinions.

It was true, he hadn’t let a single drop of alcohol pass through his lips. Not because he was anxious to perform well on his wedding night and impress his new wife. On the contrary, he wanted to keep all his faculties intact so he could confirm the suspicion that had been gnawing at his brain ever since the wedding ceremony. And with each moment that passed, his unease had grown steadily.

Unable to bide his time any longer, he stood up and went toward his room paying no heed to the numerous whistles and catcalls that followed in his wake.

Thrusting the door wide open he strode toward the marital bed. It was bare except for his bride’s wedding finery that lay in a neat pile in one corner. His heart now thudding at a frantic pace inside his chest, he scanned the vicinity, fervently hoping his concerns were for nothing.

He approached the wide open balcony door, and his pulse slowed down slightly. Perhaps he’d just been imagining it all?

A girl stood there leaning against the railing, her face upturned toward the full moon. On hearing him approach, she turned around. “Finally! I’ve been waiting like forever!”

He frowned, straining to decipher her features obscured by deep shadow. “Deepika?”

“Naa…, not Deepika.” She stepped forward into the light, a bright smile illuminating her strikingly graceful features.

His heart sank. Not Deepika.

“I am Naina—the girl you married. Goodbye, Rihaan.”

Intercepted by Love Part Two is published early! Video trailer released too.

I'm really having a ball with Cade and Andie's story. Part One was released March 21 and at that time, I put Part Two out as a pre-release for end of April. Little did I know how fast my beta readers and editor would get back to me. Thanks girls!

So... without further ado, Part Two:

Research librarian Andie Wales is devastated to learn that the man she fell in love with is a professional athlete who plays on and off the field. When Cade’s past mistakes catch up with him, Andie urges him to go back to California to do the right thing.

Meanwhile, Andie’s father’s medical bills are mounting, and she needs to take on a second job. A lucrative offer to do research for a scriptwriter lands in her inbox.

Andie flies to Los Angeles to take up the job and finds Cade at the airport. Andie needs to send every penny she makes home to her family, so she agrees to stay at Cade’s to save money, as long as he promises their relationship is friends only.

Can she negotiate a benefits package that’ll keep her heart intact? Just when she thinks she's got everything under control, her past slams her with a shocking surprise.

Video Trailer

Part 1 and 2 are available on Amazon, FREE with #KindleUnlimited and Part 3 is on pre-order.
I'm working on Part 4 and it's going to be a doozy! Woohoo!
