Close To You by B.M. Sandy πŸ’• Book Tour & Gift Card Giveaway πŸ’•(Contemporary Romance)



Michele just wants to be set free.
Iain just might have the key.

Michele Coffey is on the run. After arriving in Brooklyn four months ago, she perfected the art of looking over her shoulder. Her only goal is to make it through another day without being discovered.

When Iain Sheppard unexpectedly walks into her life, Michele’s first instinct is to retreat. Falling in love is not in her plan, and after what she’s been through, she’s not ready to trust anyone yet. Maybe ever.

Iain is a rugged, sexy freelancer, born and raised in Brooklyn. After showing up at the bar she works at one night, he leaves a note, asking to show Michele the city. It goes against every rule she has set in place for herself. She wants to forget about him and his offer, but something about him draws her in. She can’t shake it, so she agrees.

What Michele doesn’t know is that Iain knows more about her than he’s letting on.

The clock is ticking. Michele knows that her time is running out, especially after a stunning reveal that draws her and Iain even closer.

As their attraction grows deeper, she can’t stop looking over her shoulder, waiting for inevitable disaster. And she can’t help but ask herself if she escaped one prison, only to lock herself into a new one of her own making.

Will she ever be set free?



It wasn’t the right time to feel this way, to think these thoughts. But I couldn’t stop myself from asking.
“Do you feel this too?” My hands were itching to touch her, to reach up to her face and draw her in. Suddenly, that very thought consumed me; I could think of hardly anything else.
“Yes,” she breathed. My heart sped even faster as I watched her stare at me as if frozen.
“I want to kiss you so badly right now.” Her eyes flashed, cheeks visibly flushing from my words.
“Then do it.”
I didn’t need telling twice. I leaned in, pausing briefly before our lips touched, feeling her warm breath against my mouth. And then I kissed her.

She’s on top…

When superstar actress Claire Jordan researched her role for the Fierce Trilogy movies, she never expected the bond she feels with the author and her romance book club aka The Happy Endings Book Club. Soon Claire finds herself confessing her secret longing for a regular guy—no more egocentric wealthy players—and the book club is all too ready to help. In disguise as a regular girl, she’s all set for a date with book-club-approved Josh Campbell.

He’s on top…

Billionaire tech CEO Jake Campbell is weary of gold-digging women, especially the glamorous superficial types. So when his identical twin Josh calls in a favor asking Jake to step in as him on a date, Jake figures one of Josh’s cute girl-next-door types might be just what he needs. One night of passion with the sweet girl-next-door leaves Jake wanting more, except she seems to have vanished.

Sometimes a Happy Ending is just the beginning.
A PERFECT way to start this series!

I loved everything about this book. Everything. There are so many different personalities in here, and it still has that underlying "Kylie-humor" that I totally get and love.

As usual, I was sucked in from the beginning. Having read most of the previous series where most of these characters were introduced (though NOT necessary to enjoy this book), I couldn't wait to read what adventures awaited these book club ladies.

Kylie did not disappoint!

In the beginning, when Jake and Josh revealed what they were planning, I was ECSTATIC. I knew this was going to be some story, and I COULD NOT WAIT to see how it unfolded.

And then, when their plot was realized by those involved, the outcome was absolutely worth waiting for. While Claire and Jake get their Happily Ever After, Kylie left the door wiiiiiiide open for not only the next book, but the rest of the series. I don't know about you, but I'm in this one for the long haul!

 
 



A best friend's little sister romance...

Madison Campbell has worshipped her older brother’s best friend Parker Shaw for as long as she can remember. So the night before he leaves for the Air Force, she decides he’s leaving town with her virginity. All she has to do is transform her tomboy self into a sexy woman with a bit of borrowed makeup and some creative fashion choices. The results? One drunken kiss that Park doesn’t even remember.


Ten years later, no man has ever gotten close to her heart the way Park did. And now that he’s back, the very unfeminine Madison refuses to blow her second chance. But when her bold attempts to snag his attention (“Oops! Dropped my towel.”) fail miserably, she does something completely insane—she caves to a makeover from the meddling matchmaker in charge of The Happy Endings Book Club. Hey, Park, you want some of this? Madison is about to find out.
I'm SO happy Mad got her happy ending!

I was introduced to Mad in the previous book of the series (NOT necessary to have read that one to enjoy this one!), and I wasn't sure what to think of her. But this book shines a much more flattering light on her.

Park and Mad had a history, and the flashback at the beginning of the book sucked me right in and had me flying through the pages to see if and how these two got reunited.

I, personally, found Mad easy to relate to. At some point or another, haven't we all felt that we didn't quite fit in? I liked her adaptability and willingness to try the things the Happy Endings Book Club ladies suggested to help her snag Park.

This book is written in typical Kylie fashion, with plenty of steam, a storyline that flows steadily and juuuuuust enough humor to make it realistic. Like all of her other books, I absolutely LOVED it and can't wait to read more!!!

The last thing Charlotte Vega needs is a cocky HOT stuntman like Ty Campbell in her life. But when he pulls the ultimate stunt—a sexy romantic gesture that ends with a charming invitation to a sunset dinner cruise—she finds him impossible to resist. Cue disaster.

Their rocky first date goes from bad to worse when his yacht (okay, it’s actually borrowed and he’s only had one boating lesson) gets stranded in deep mud. Turns out there’s nothing Ty can do but wait hours and hours for high tide with no power, no way to cook dinner, and a hangry sexy-as-hell woman.

But Ty is determined to salvage the date so he starts a game to pass the time. Only what Ty learns makes him realize he may have just botched a date with the perfect woman. How will he ever win her now?
:::Wistful sigh::: The Ty Effect...

This book was a very low-stress, high-sweetness, what-you-see-is-what-you-get book. It's a perfect standalone addition to this series, and I absolutely loved it!

Admittedly, I wasn't sure about Charlotte from meeting her in previous books. She seemed a little standoffish to me. But I really got to know her, and her past, and I loved reading her emotional evolution, initiated by Ty. No one deserved this happy ending more than she did.

I have never read a sweeter hero than Ty. A fun, sexy stuntman with a ready smile and juuuust enough of a bad boy edge, he was great to read, and a perfect match for Char.

Wile this is a standalone series, there is an underlying, continuing, story of Hailey and Josh that I CAN'T WAIT to read! I mean, talk about smoldering angst and tension. Kylie is building up some SERIOUS heat between those two, and I am SO excited to see what happens!!!

I loved being able to catch up with many of the other characters I have met in Clover Park. So much so that I very well may go back and read them all over again :)
