A Message from Kristen about If I Had Never Met You

From the minute song writer Jake Keller lays eyes on Addison Wade, a tune sets up residence in his head. As he gets to know her, the tune becomes a song. Their song. Addie’s song. The stakes are the highest they’ve ever been for him when he finally sings it to her, but will it be enough to keep her?


I can’t thank Brad Yunek and Dan Keseloff enough for writing this beautiful song to accompany Jake and Addie’s story. I hope you love it as much as I do.

If I Had Never Met You is now available on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon for just $.99

About LISTEN TO ME

In New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby’s brand new series, five best friends open a hot new restaurant, but one of them gets much more than she bargained for when a sexy former rock star walks through the doors—and into her heart.

Seduction is quickly becoming the hottest new restaurant in Portland, and Addison Wade is proud to claim 1/5 of the credit. She’s determined to make it a success and can’t think of a better way to bring in new customers than live music. But when former rock star Jake Keller swaggers through the doors to apply for the weekend gig, she knows she’s in trouble. Addie instantly recognizes him—his posters were plastered all over her bedroom walls in high school—he’s all bad boy…exactly her type and exactly what she doesn’t need.

Jake Keller walked away from the limelight five years ago and yearns to return to what’s always driven him: the music. If he gets to work for a smart-mouthed, funny-as-hell bombshell, all the better. But talking Addie into giving him the job is far easier than persuading her that he wants more than a romp in her bed. Just when she begins to drop her walls, Jake’s past finally catches up with him.

Will Addie be torn apart once again or will Jake be able to convince her to drown out her doubts and listen to her heart?

Review: Betting on the Wrong Brother by Cathryn Fox

Received from Tasty Book Tours

Received from Tasty Book Tours

Title: Betting on the Wrong Brother
Series: What Happens in Vegas #12
Author: Cathryn Fox
Publisher: Entangled Lovestruck
Publication Date: 8 Feb 2016
Source: Review Copy
Rating: 3.5/5

Synopsis from Goodreads

He may be at a romance readers’ convention, but a naked woman in the elevator is not what horror writer Ryan Wheeler expects. Now he can’t take his eyes off of her—and not just because he saw her naked, though her luscious curves certainly aren’t helping the matter. She’s beautiful, funny, snarky…and a complication he doesn’t need.

Running into her teen heartthrob while naked wasn’t exactly part of romance novelist Andi Palmer’s weekend plans. Worse, he doesn’t recognize her and gives her a fake name¬. Years ago, he shot her down in the worst possible way, and now this? It’s time for a little down-and-dirty revenge.

Ryan’s more than a little turned on by this good girl who wants to be bad. But things aren’t what they seem, and the secrets they’re keeping from one another might just end this sexy little rendezvous before it ever begins…

REVIEW 

Betting on the Wrong Brother is a cute, fast paced romance featuring mistaken identity, sizzling chemistry, fate and finding your soulmate.

The third person narrative aids the numerous plot threads stemming from Andi and Ryan’s history, although in a completely unexpected way. You see Andi is the same age as Ryan’s younger brother and had a HUGE crush on him as a teen only to have him break her heart. Andi was an awkward, frumpy teen resulting in self-esteem issues years later.

A case of mistaken identity and a serious amount of sparks result in Andi and Ryan living out their fantasies for the duration of their time in Vegas. Both have some serious relationship hang-ups due to their life experiences. However, fate/destiny has other plans for Andi and Ryan, they are quite literally perfect together.

There is a small amount of angst but this is quickly overcome by the endearing quality of the characters. The emotional growth of the characters is a fundamental part of the plot and wonderful to follow. Although I would love to know what the future has in store for Andi and Ryan :)

Betting on the Wrong Brother is my first book by Cathryn Roberts, it most certainly won’t be my last 😉

I love it when songs get assigned to characters and books helping set the mood to accompany the actions. I am delighted to welcome Cathryn Fox to share her song for Ryan in Betting on the Wrong Brother.

I know a lot of people make playlist when writing, and they can really help set the mood for a story, but I need silence when working. Total and utter silence. My husband and kids both work with music in the background, but for me, I end up singing along and bouncing in my chair. Believe me, that’s just not good for anyone. LOL. There is a man across the street from me who likes to stand in his yard and whistle for hours on end. It makes me crazy. I actually have to wear headphones when he does that. So while I don’t like listening to music when writing, it doesn’t mean I don’t like music. I do. I actually get a lot of story ideas and inspiration when listening to songs. A certain word, or line can set my brain racing and by the end of the song I can have a brand new story idea. Hold Me Down Hard, my bestselling novella from Entangled Brazen all started with a song.

In Betting on the Wrong Brother, I have my hero on stage dancing to Moves Like Jagger. That was a fun scene to write, especially because he hadn’t danced since his high school prom and he was performing on a stage in front of hundreds of romance writers!

Synopsis

Whoever said singles were missing out by not finding true love and getting married before the age of thirty had never experienced the sheer pleasure of nightly romantic comedy viewings in their underwear while eating one of Licked’s famous Crazy Cat Lady sundaes. Because life just doesn’t get better than that.

At least, it doesn’t for Shayne Callahan. It didn’t take more than a handful of broken hearts after college to solidify that she was better at pairing up those around her than herself. As a matchmaker at the elite HLS—Hook, Line, & Sinker Matchmaking Company—in the City of Angels, she has a knack for finding the other halves of even the most eccentric clients:

Sugar daddy with a foot fetish? Gross, but no problem.

A severe case of nudophobia? Match made before lunch.

But even the most happily independent of women can find their best-laid plans screeching to a halt when they meet that guy. For Shayne, that guy comes in the form of boyishly handsome, suspender-lovin’, dimple-poppin’ Nate Ryan on a pantsless (we’ll get to that later) Metro ride.

Of course, relationships can never be easy. Before the destined lovers can ride off into the sunset, they must overcome a power-hungry and sexual-punning boss, a celebrity scandal and cover-up, and let’s not forget Shayne’s dreadful foot-in-mouth disease—with which there can never be a happily ever after.

Will fate throw Shayne a freakin’ bone? Or will she be destined to live out her life as sexy(ish), single(ish), and L.A.’s finest Hooker (upper)?

About The Author

You could say Brooke Blaine was a book-a-holic from the time she knew how to read; she used to tell her mother that curling up with one at 4 a.m. before elementary school was her ‘quiet time.’ Not much has changed except for the espresso I.V. pump she now carries around and the size of her onesie pajamas.

She is the author of the international bestselling romantic comedy series, L.A. Liaisons (“Licked” and “Hooker), as well as Flash Point and The Desperate Man series. The latter, co-authored with Ella Frank, has scarred her conservative Southern family for life, bless their hearts.

If you’d like to get in touch with her, she’s easy to find – just keep an ear out for the Rick Astley ringtone that’s dominated her cell phone for ten years.
