Love was in the air and Gabrielle wasn’t interested. Even if she was willing to risk her heart again, which she wasn’t, any man would have to get past her overbearing brother first.

BOOK TOUR ~ Homegoing by Janae Keyes

 

Title: Homegoing
Author: Janae Keyes

 

Genre: Contemporary Second Chance Romance

Publication Date: August 1, 2018

Bethany Cross
was avoiding her hometown like the plague. It was all due to one person in the population, the one who broke her heart, her ex-boyfriend and high school sweetheart Liam. When Bethany’s dad dies, and she’s left with the pieces of his life, including his popular downtown bar, Crossroads. She’s forced to return home to the scars of her childhood and her broken heart.
Liam is pissed. He’s angry that the girl who somehow still held his heart wasn’t there for her dad in his time of need. When she returns to take care of her father’s homegoing service and possibly close the bar he’s known his entire life. He realizes that Bethany is more broken than he could have ever known.
Can one homegoing bring home two hearts that have always belonged together?
 



Homegoing was a good read but I didn’t love it, which was a shame because, from the blurb, I thought I would!! This was my first read by Janae Keyes but I’d definitely check out her other works.

Liam and Bethany were high school sweethearts who wanted different things that eventually tore them apart. To be honest, I couldn’t see me forgiving him if I had been in her shoes – too much was said and done and, for me, the timescales from the past suggested Liam didn’t love Beth as much as he’d claimed he did!!

Add in a crazy ex, a sad loss, misunderstandings, lack of communication (my pet hate!) and some great characters and you have all the makings of a great read – that for some reason, as I’ve said, didn’t quite hit the mark for me! That said, give it a try, there’s every chance that you’ll love it!

3*. I did love where the title of the book came from!!

BLOG TOUR ~ Rules of Friendship by CA Harms


Title: Rules of Friendship
Author: C.A. Harms

 

Genre: A Friends-To-Lovers Standalone Romance

Release Date: August 6, 2018
As a guy, the number one rule to being best friends with a girl should be simple…
Never, and I do mean never, fall in love with her. 
Oh and you should never fantasize about her either.
Believe me, that situation can get messy really fast and leave you with nothing but one hell of an awkward
mess on your hands—literally.
Reese and I have been through everything together; our bond is deep. But I am going down fast, and I fear there
is no way to stop it. I spend most of my time hiding my body’s reaction to her because like I said: just friends.
But things are changing. We are changing. 
 
I no longer see her as just Reese, my best friend. When I look at her now, I see a gorgeous woman that
takes my breath away. I see my future. But what if she doesn’t see me the same way? 
 
I can’t risk losing her… 
 
The fear of screwing everything up is excruciating. So that’s why I have chosen to stick to the rules.
The Rules of Friendship that is. 
 
She was off limits. Plain and simple. 
 
But then in she walks wearing her tiny shorts and those tight tops.
Come on, a guy can only have so much restraint before he caves…






C.A. Harms is like any other addicted reader. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories. She hasn’t always been a lover of Romance and had once been addicted to a good Mystery. Just recently she has taken on a new liking and now is a full blown Romance novel addict.

Winona Clark hasn’t been the same for years. After numerous attempts to start fresh abroad, one phone call brings her back home to some harsh truths and distant, but never forgotten, faces.
