She’s holding out for a happy ever after.


I know where to find my happily ever after—between the pages of a romance novel. It’s why I sell books, why I blog about them, and why I’ll never get disappointed by love. So what if my brother’s best friend from high school is now a bestselling author? Or that he just blew back into town on a Harley, filling out a pair of jeans like he never did before? Or that he’s agreed to do a signing at my bookstore on such short notice? Because despite all his adoring female fans, I kind of hated his book.


The last time I saw Annie Denning, she was a senior in high school, three years older than me and way out of my league.
Now I’m her last-minute date to a wedding, and what started as a night of pure fun has turned into something more real than either of us anticipated. Annie is my muse. When I’m with her, my writer’s block fades away, and the words finally flow. The only problem? She wants the fairy tale—her very own happily ever after—and anyone who’s read my book knows the truth. I just don’t believe they exist.





I love this series from A.J. Pine and Three Simple Words was another great serving from the Kingston Ale House!

We have Annie Denning, our bookstore owner heroine who is a romance book lover who wholeheartedly believes in a HEA when it comes to love and relationships and then there’s our leading man, Wes Harley, who just happens to be Annie’s brother’s friend who is now a successful (but cynical) author who thinks that he ~ or anyone else for that matter ~ is incapable of ever having a happy ending and that a ‘forever kinda love’ is only found in books!!

I liked that they knew each other previously and that there was an attraction to begin with, even if Annie wasn’t too happy with Wes and his latest book (anti)hero!
Wes wasn’t quite what I expected – he wasn’t as cold and heartless as I thought he would be, beneath all the armour he was kind, thoughtful, caring and quite possibly boyfriend material – even if he didn’t see it himself. He was a little bit broken and through the story we find out why his view on love was so jaded.
Annie was a great balance to Wes. She was determined, sassy, and positive that there was a love out there that would last forever. She had a huge heart and I so wanted things to work out as she believed they could.
Even though they had such different pov’s she was there for Wes, doing what she could to support him through his ‘writer’s block’, giving him the support and confidence that he’d never received in the past from anyone who wasn’t working with him.

I loved the chemistry between this pair, they were fun, hot and sexy when they got together but at times they both frustrated me – at points I could have given them both a shake to make them see what was in front of their faces!!!

We caught up with the other couples from previous books in the series and met some other fun and interesting supporting characters. I cannot wait for Jeremy’s book, Worth The Wait, to see how hard and fast he falls for his ladylove….. whoever she might be!

Although this is part of a series, you could read Three Simple Words as a standalone, though IMHO it would be more enjoyable if you read the books in order.
A fun, well written read that had me laughing, sighing, fanning myself and keeping everything crossed that this pair could get on the same page and find a future together despite their different views on love and happily ever afters!!! I give this great read 4 HEA stars!





Six Month Rule New Cover

She created the game, but the rules are about to change.

The second I met Will Evans in his three-piece suit with that hot as hell British accent, I wanted him.

That is…until he insulted my shoes and stole my corner office.

Now I have to work side-by-side with the surly British arsehole who just set my career back six months.

It’s fine. That accent won’t get to me, no matter how sexy it sounds when he asks permission to do things professionals shouldn’t do. On the couch. In the corner office I still wish was mine.

Maybe we can’t keep our hands off each other, but I’m sure as hell not falling for a guy who lives an ocean away. Because in six months, he’s leaving for good.

I don’t do broken hearts, but you know what they say…

There’s a first time for everything.

Each book in the Kingston Ale House series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

How far will one man go for the woman he’s loved since high school?

Jamie Kingston has been Brynn Chandler’s best friend since middle school. Only once was their friendship tested—when Brynn gave Jamie a single kiss. Since then, they’ve had an unspoken agreement never to cross that line again, and she’s ready to let go of the past and move on.

But Jamie has loved Brynn for as long as he can remember, and now that he’s ready to tell her, she has her sights set on someone else. Knowing this is his last chance, he asks Brynn to go on a two-week road trip. But their time alone brings old hurts to the surface, and Brynn has to decide if the one that got away lies at the end of the journey or if he’s been by her side all along.





AJ Pine writes stories to break readers’ hearts, but don’t worry—she’ll mend them with a happily ever after. As an English teacher and a librarian, AJ has always surrounded herself with books. All her favorites have one big commonality–romance. Naturally, her books have the same.

When she’s not writing, she’s of course reading. Then there’s online shopping (everything from groceries to shoes) and, of course, a tiny bit of TV where she nourishes her undying love of vampires and superheroes. And in the midst of all of this, you’ll also find her hanging with her family in the Chicago burbs.
