Sebastian
You always remember your first love. You also never forget the day she left.
Moving on from losing Haven was hard, but I was young, with my whole life ahead of me. A life that saw a marriage, the birth of my daughter, and then a divorce. Co-parenting isn’t easy, but not much in life is, right? I have a job I love as a high school math teacher and football coach, and raising Chloe keeps me plenty busy. Life is good. I’m content. Settled. Predictable.
Until one day, I look up and come face to face with the one that got away. Haven Decker.
Haven
You always remember the day you break your own heart. You also never forget the man you left behind.
I was young and thought I needed more than life in the small town I grew up in. I walked away from the love of my life for a chance at a career most only ever dream of. I focused on putting one foot in front of the other, creating a life I thought I wanted. It turns out the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. When an injury and a cheating boyfriend bring my world to a halt, one phone call has me packing up and heading back to the one place I never thought I would return to.
I knew I would run into him, but I don’t know if I’m ready to face him. Sebastian Hall.

Since taking over the county coroner’s office, Meredith “Doc” Carter has been working hard to gain the respect of both her peers and local authorities.

Random body parts turning up are substantially more troublesome, and when the facts don’t line up Meredith reaches out to entomologist, Casey Shea for answers.

Detective Jay VanDyken has admired Doc from the sidelines. His recent promotion comes with the added benefit of dealing directly with the silver-haired forensic pathologist, an opportunity he doesn’t plan on wasting. The discovery of partial remains have Jay and Meredith working closely together, but breaking down the pieces to build their case is not the only challenge. Their developing relationship has its own share of problems.

BLP REVIEW – Tracy

I’ve read Freya Barker since book one and regardless of what number story we reach I’m as excited to read the new one as I was way back at the beginning.

Ms B never disappoints and she never fails to hit the mark when it comes to characters and storylines. I’m loving the On Call series and am looking forward to more.

Dissecting Meredith was a fab instalment and I liked both the Doc and Jay.

Meredith Carter is a quirky, unique, down to earth woman who owns who she is, works damned hard and, due to having to prove her worth in her role as the county coroner, doesn’t get sidetracked by her private life. Until Jay!!!

Jay VanDyken has had his eye on the Doc for a while but his own issues have held him back from trying to gain her interest, until a change in his own life makes him go for what he wants.

I love the build up of relationships we get in a book fro Freya. That her characters are a little bit older, have issues and baggage and that their lives are not nice and straightforward is very relatable. The storylines are interesting and engaging, packed with intrigue, suspense and action. As ever we got to catch up with some of our favourite characters from both this and other series which is always great.

You could read this as a standalone but I really would recommend you go back and start at the beginning as this series is definitely one to devour.



USA Today bestselling author Freya Barker loves writing about ordinary people with extraordinary stories.
Driven to make her books about ‘real’ people; she creates characters who are perhaps less than perfect, each struggling to find their own slice of happy, but just as deserving of romance, thrills and chills in their lives.
Recipient of the ReadFREE.ly 2019 Best Book We’ve Read All Year Award for “Covering Ollie, the 2015 RomCon “Reader’s Choice” Award for Best First Book, “Slim To None”, and Finalist for the 2017 Kindle Book Award with “From Dust”, Freya continues to add to her rapidly growing collection of published novels as she spins story after story with an endless supply of bruised and dented characters, vying for attention!

Title: Wishing for A Cowboy

Author: Victoria James

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Wishing for A Cowboy:

𝑭𝒓𝒐𝒎 𝑵𝒆𝒘 𝒀𝒐𝒓𝒌 𝑻𝒊𝒎𝒆𝒔 𝒃𝒆𝒔𝒕𝒔𝒆𝒍𝒍𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒂𝒖𝒕𝒉𝒐𝒓 𝑽𝒊𝒄𝒕𝒐𝒓𝒊𝒂 𝑱𝒂𝒎𝒆𝒔 𝒄𝒐𝒎𝒆𝒔 𝒂 𝒉𝒆𝒂𝒓𝒕𝒘𝒂𝒓𝒎𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒍𝒐𝒗𝒆 𝒔𝒕𝒐𝒓𝒚 𝒂𝒃𝒐𝒖𝒕 𝒇𝒂𝒎𝒊𝒍𝒚, 𝒇𝒐𝒓𝒈𝒊𝒗𝒆𝒏𝒆𝒔𝒔, 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒕𝒓𝒖𝒆 𝒎𝒆𝒂𝒏𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒐𝒇𝒉𝒐𝒎𝒆.”

Janie Adams has been a single parent to her nephew since he was a baby. Fifteen years later, she’s finally found out who his father might be, so the two of them travel across the country to find him. She’d do anything for this kid. But when they arrive in the small town of Wishing River, Montana, and Janie finally meets the ruggedly handsome cowboy she’d been told had abandoned his son, his shocked response changes everything.

Aiden Rivers can’t dispute this is his kid when he sees his own features staring back at him, but he had no idea Janie’s sister was pregnant when she left him. He didn’t even know she had a sister—clearly they’d all been lied to. Now he has fifteen years of fatherhood to make up for and no idea how to be a dad. This was never in his plans.

Janie sticks around to help him ease into parenting, everything from showing him how to lure a sulky kid out of his bedroom to keeping up with the latest teen-speak. Together, they surprisingly make a good team, this city girl and country boy. But when the past catches up with them, Aiden and Janie must decide what’s best for the boy who’s connecting them, not only for each other…which could mean splitting them apart.

Exclusive Excerpt:

“Are you a rancher, too, Logan?” Janie asked, and Aiden turned his attention to her. “You’ve got the right hat for it.”

“No, everyone out here wears cowboy hats. You’ll be wearing one, too, before long.” Logan’s grin was bashful. Aiden had never seen bashful on him before. Though, with the image of Janie in a cowboy hat coming to mind, he couldn’t really blame him. “I’m a vet,” Logan said. “I have a practice just outside of Wishing River.”

Janie smiled at Logan like he just announced he was some kind of superhero. “Really? I have six months left of veterinary college.”

Aiden’s stomach dropped as he watched the exchange, as the weird coincidence sank in. One vet, one almost vet, and one…bartender who should have been a vet.

Logan grinned wider. “That’s great. If you’re in town for a while, I’m always on the lookout for new people. Are you taking time off from your regular job?”

Her cheeks went a deeper pink, lifting one shoulder. “Sort of. But I plan to go back as soon as I can.”

“We’re always in need of some extra help at the clinic, so if you want a job in the meantime, it’s great experience. You, too, Will. If you want to come and hang out, we could always use someone to give a little attention to the animals staying overnight.” Logan pulled out his business card and handed it to her.

Janie’s eyes sparkled with excitement, and she accepted the card readily. And Will looked as happy as Aiden had ever seen him. “That is so generous of you,” she said, smiling.

A job at Logan’s was a hell of a lot better than a job in his bar. He should be happy about that. Instead he was watching Janie and Logan and Will bond over something that he also loved. That was juvenile, and he’d already dealt with that shit. Why was it coming up again now? Janie and Will deserved a break, and that’s what he should be focusing on instead of thinking like an ass. It’s just that he wanted to give them that break. “That’s great,” he said, forcing a grin. “Glad you guys were able to meet.”

There were only three stalls with horses in them, but Aiden’s dream was to have them all filled one day and have someone else manage the bar. The familiar, musky smell of the barn, the sound of horses shuffling in their stalls, the soft whinnying, almost made him believe he was living this dream. Until he was reminded that he hadn’t ever fulfilled his dream. But this was second best, what he had going on here. He had the land, the horses, the dedication to them. It didn’t matter that he didn’t have a “Dr.” in front of his name.

“Well,” Janie said, “we’ll get back to the house. It’s pretty cold out here. It was nice meeting you, Logan.”

“You, too, and you as well, Will. Hope I’ll be hearing from you, Janie.” Logan’s grin was a little too flashy for Aiden’s liking. Hope I’ll be hearing from you should have been followed by about the job and not so open-ended.

Will gave a small wave, and the two of them walked out. Aiden’s shoulders relaxed as they left the barn. And then tensed again when Logan turned to him with a glint in his eyes. “First off, that’s definitely your kid,” Logan said. “That sort of disgruntled eyebrow furrowing thing? And that one-sided dimple that women love for some reason that’s always escaped me, because it’s essentially a defect in your face. Come on. That’s you. Second, you never told me Maxi had a sister like that…let alone who was going to be a vet and is probably the most gorgeous woman I’ve met in a long time.”

Aiden walked over to the horse feeders, disappointed they were full. He needed to do something with his hands. He pulled his hat lower so Logan couldn’t comment on his “brow furrowing,” which he realized he was actually doing. Why was he getting bothered about Logan’s comment? It was a normal response. He felt the same way.

“Hello? Did you hear me?” Logan asked, walking over to him.

Aiden lifted his head and forced his eyebrows into their normal state. “Sorry, I have a lot on my mind—like the fact that I might have a teenage kid. I’m not really thinking about how hot his aunt is.”

Logan smirked. “Oh, so you did notice.”

“I have eyes. It’s a fact, not a statement confirming interest.”

Title: Life Changer

Genre: Single Dad Rom/Com, Firefighter Romance
Release Date: February 25, 2021
When a firefighter and the chef he’s been crushing on cross paths, sparks fly.
***
Divorced single mom Dee has never much believed in fate until now, but something about the charming and adorably awkward flirt, Rhodes, has her intrigued and wanting to know more.

Can these two singletons trust the hard and fast connection they’ve found, or will the pressure to live up to expectations stop them from being the life changers they both want and need.
***
USA Today Bestselling Author BJ Harvey brings you Life Changer- Book 2 in a new spin-off to the Cook Brothers rom com series, featuring Chicago first responders fighting the good fight and finding love at the same time. Set in the same world as the Bliss, Game, and Cook Brothers series before it, this title can be read as a complete standalone.


I’m about to knock when the door swings open and a man looking strikingly similar to Harvey appears.

“Hey, you must be Rhodes. I’m Flynn,” he says, holding out his hand.

I shake it and smile, relieved he’s not making this weirder than it has to be. It makes sense he’d be here since Dee said he had a standing date with Harvey on Sundays. “Yep. That’s me.”

Silence stretches between us. We both stand there, looking at each other.

“Oh, shit, sorry. Do you wanna come in? Dee’s in the bedroom finishing getting ready.”

I laugh and rub the back of my neck, stepping inside behind my date’s ex-husband. “It’s okay. We both know this is kind of awkward, right?”

Flynn snorts. “Honestly, yeah, it’s the first time I’ve had to deal with meeting the guy dating Dee, but that’s to be expected when we share a house, right?”

I open my mouth to reply but freeze at his revelation. Thank f*ck I cover quickly. “Right. I guess that makes sense with Harvey and all.”

Flynn’s gaze narrows slightly before widening. “Oh fuck. You didn’t know, did you?” He scrubs his mouth. “Damn. I dumped her in it. Look, sorry, but it is just a living arrangement. It works for us, it works for Harvey, and I’ve got a girlfriend that I’m kinda crazy about. So please don’t feel threatened or go all alpha dog on me,” he says, his lips twitching.

How can I hate this guy now? “Thanks for explaining it. I’m surprised, but I’m sure Dee meant to tell me.”

“To be fair, Harvs and I should’ve left by now. You’ve kinda been blindsided, but it was completely unintentional.”

“You know, you’re making it hard for me not to like you?” I say, making him laugh.

“Good. Because you’re the first guy Dee has gone out on a date with in two years, so I’m glad you’re not a dick either.”

Footsteps grab my attention, and when I look up I meet Dee’s slow-growing smile as she walks down the staircase toward us, her eyes going from soft and warm to wide and worried when her gaze shifts to a grinning Flynn leaning against the wall. “Oh f*ck.”

“That’s what I said,’ Flynn says.



BLP REVIEW – TRACY

I have to say that LIFE CHANGER is so far one of my favourite books of 2021…

Although this is only the second book by BJ Harvey that I’ve read I am so taken with her storytelling and her character building that I’ll be a definite fan going forward.

I adored this story. Great main characters, a little older with families and some baggage but perfect for each other..

Rhodes was a great leading man. His loyalty, commitment, humour and patience as well as his ability to think on his feet rounded out his character well.

Dee was fab. Her home life was a little different to say the least but it worked for those involved and that was the main thing. She had a likability and realism that I liked. I loved her understanding when it comes to Rhode’s wife Lily and how, even though she was gone, she was still a part of their lives.

The kids Harvey and Jake and Dee’s ex/best friend along with Rhodes friends, family and his work family were all great supporting characters.

I’m going back to read Marco’s book and I am excited for more in the Chicago First Responders series!!
