Ivy is 34 and her hero Brett is 52 in PRETTY IN PINK SLIP, book 3 of the After Office Hours standalone series.
Anything can happen after office hours.

Ivy has a six year old daughter named Joy, and Brett has his first grandchild. They work at the same startup company. Ivy called out Rhonda, and now Brett fears that she might sue the company. Ivy is not sure if every flirtation from Brett is done to avert a lawsuit. But their attraction cannot be denied.  Can they mix business with pleasure … as long as it is ‘after office hours’?

I have read all of the books in this sexy series at the startup company that I would like to work at just for all the romances and friendships!
Desire Actually has Jordana (30); Love Affair to Remember has Gloria (48); Pretty in Pink Slip has Ivy (34)
I also like that the titles are derived from romance movie titles! Desire Actually is from the movie, Love Actually; Love Affair to Remember is from An Affair to Remember; and, Pretty in Pink Slip is from Pretty in Pink.

4.5 stars! Cool title. Ivy gets told off by Rhonda, a work colleague, and has to decide whether she will sue the company or whether she is falling in love with the CEO, Brett. Rhonda has been a thorn in the side of all three ladies of this mature romance series. At this company, Rhonda practically terrorizes everyone. But with Brett giving Rhonda a leave to think about things, Ivy gets a chance to figure out what she wants.

I liked Ivy and Brett. Ivy was the single mother abandoned by the baby daddy. Her daughter, Joy, is as bubbly as her name. And then there is her mother who has been bitter since her husband left years ago. Ivy takes some time to figure out whether she wants to sue the company or whether Brett is sincere and not playing her in order to keep her from a lawsuit. Her mother gives her two cents as often as possible, and Joy is falling for Brett as well.

For me, this story worked on quite a few levels. Ivy had to determine who she was outside of her own harsh judgment of her past, if she could trust Brett, and if she was bold enough to go after her real dream. She went from passive aggressive to assertive. Her character developed and grew. I liked her interactions with Jordana, Gloria, and Hannah. I like females being friends in romance novels, that it’s not just about the guy.

Brett is 52, a grandfather, and divorced; Ivy is 34, a single mother, and a college dropout. They don’t seem like a likely couple, but the author brings their story to life. I was a bit bothered by Ivy allowing Joy to get so close to Brett so fast, but it was a minor concern. Their Thanksgiving together was the turning point, and her mother’s advice surprised me. And then Ivy confronts Rhonda with quite the unexpected result.

While I enjoyed the story, I skimmed Brett and Ivy’s sexy scenes. I didn’t fall in love with Brett, but I liked him, which is why I rated it 4.5 stars. the sexy scenes were romantic and detailed. I preferred the other two couples, but I loved that the series included a single mother!

I hope that Hannah will be the next to get a story in this series. I received a review copy, but since I enjoyed the previous two books, I 1-clicked a copy. This one is a keeper because of Ivy.

Release Date: August 16, 2017
Cover Designer: Rebel Edit & Design
What if one morning you look in the mirror and no longer recognize the person looking back?
When Leelo can no longer identify herself by the roles that once defined her, it’s both terrifying and liberating. Oh, she feels the loss, the grief, and then the anger, but when she inherits property up north, she jumps at the promise of freedom and independence. 
Yet not everyone in her new community is what they seem, starting with the surly mountain man down the road.
As owner of the local fishing lodge, Roar is content with his everyday life. And the older he gets, the less he appreciates change. So when a blue-haired, tattooed ‘city girl’ moves into the old motel, shaking up his daily routine, he’s none too pleased.

Still, something about the woman’s easy smile and almost reckless grit has him step up as her keeper.

Title: Memories of Me
Author: Dani Hart
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Re-release Date: June 12, 2017

 

Blurb
*Inspired by true events*
(Characters are a work of fiction)
When you close your eyes and open them again you expect to see the world as it was a fraction of a second ago. Maybe a slight change from a passing breeze, but you are still in the same place, unmoving and unchanged.
You don’t expect to be somewhere else where the faces are unfamiliar. Where you are unfamiliar. 
With one blink I had no family, no home, no name, and no past. I was alone, until I met the Reilly brothers. They gave me purpose again.
A reason to trust. A reason to love. A reason to rebuild a life full of forgotten memories. Together, they would try to rewrite my history.

Go Green with Your Beauty Routine!

I don’t use much makeup but when I do, it’s usually has organic and few non-natural ingredients. So, this book was of interest to me, though I had not heard of the blogger/author. I don’t usually read books or blogs about makeup. This book piqued my interest when I saw it offered on NetGalley for review. She shares her personal experiences as well as those of her clients.
