✍🏻 Professor Romance’s 4.5 ⭐️ Review: Meghan Quinn’s Earn Your Extra Credit ✍🏻

Overall Grade: 4.5 ⭐️

Do you ever read a story and it feels packed from the first to last page with story? When you enter Meghan Quinn’s Earn Your Extra Credit, you have no idea what journey her characters, Stella and Brock “Romeo” Romero, will take. I was excited about this romance because Stella and Romeo circle each other in Arlo and Greer’s See Me After Class. It was clear in that story that one of these two was pining for the other without making any progress towards a relationship. Not to mention, that book wasn’t the space for their story. However, their chemistry was clear, as well as Stella’s misconception of Romeo. 

Now, the other reason that Earn Your Extra Credit feels like a delicious extra credit assignment is Quinn’s Brock Romero. We’ve met him in her Brentwood Boys tales. While he didn’t get up to too much manwhoring and revelry, he fit in nicely with those guys, the ones who we have fallen for in their own books. For Romeo to finally get his story, one that is complicated in many ways, means that we get small peeks of Gentry, Carson, and of course, Gunner. This speaks of nostalgia over some of Quinn’s best stories, and the grand gesture that Stella throws down to win Romeo back will make you tear up. Seriously. 

In this book, the gang is all here, and they are all protective covering for Stella and Romeo’s story. Gunner and Lindsay, Keiko and Kelvin, Arlo and Greer, and Cora all play an important part in imparting wisdom and a smack upside the head when necessary. Gunner and Keiko also offer some of the humor of this story to balance out the overwhelming stress of Stella and Romeo’s coupling. Because I have to be honest, Stella is a tough nut in this story. For all of her whimsy in See Me After Class, she is stubbornly frustrating in her own story. Romeo and Stella are a four-alarm fire physically, but Stella’s inability to see Romeo’s true feelings coupled with Romeo’s frustrating unwillingness to lay out his feelings for her will make you want to throw your Kindle at the wall. For much of the story, this is a good thing. It means you’re attuned to Stella and Romeo’s plight, but there are moments when I wanted to yell at Stella “enough is enough.” 

There is so much to explore in Earn Your Extra Credit. From feelings of unresolved dreams to believing the worst about yourself to needing to reconcile with a family member, Meghan Quinn has proffered up another story that creates a multiplicity of emotions in her readers in equal measure. As I mentioned earlier in my review, this book feels heavy with story, and it is worth every penny. 

In love and romance, 

Professor A

✍🏻 Professor Romance’s 4.5 ⭐️ Review: Lauren Rowe’s Falling Out of Hate with You ✍🏻

Overall Grade: 4.5 ⭐️

Want to play the game Two Truths and a Lie to discuss Lauren Rowe’s Falling Out of Hate with You? Let’s begin. This book has inspired me to read more rockstar romances because I’ve been missing out. This story should probably be titled “Misunderstandings and Misconceptions” because the hero, Savage, and the heroine, Laila, make assumptions about each other that complicate their journey. And….this book is not STEAMY in the slightest. Okay, so which is the lie? 

I’m fairly certain you can find it easily. Falling Out of Hate with You is indeed steamy, BUT it’s done so carefully and most of it crafted in the minds of her two characters that, quite honestly, this book reads like a slow-burn romance. When they do get physical, it is off the charts hot. The fact that we’re told multiple times that Savage has an “oral fixation” should be an indication of what that hero can do to his heroine…and he does it. 

Here’s what I love the most about this book, though. See, I appreciate duets, but they oftentimes DRIVE ME CRAZY. Why? Because I’m impatient, and I want my guaranteed happy ending in one book. Additionally, there are authors in romancelandia who create a duet when they should have written one book, but it seems like they draw it out to sell more books. With Lauren Rowe’s Falling Out of Hate with You that does not at all feel like the case. In fact, this book is a steady stream of foreplay between her Savage and Laila. This book is necessary to build to where I think she’s going in the second and final book, Falling Into Love with You. Savage and Laila require the space of this book to set up their growing tension of hate to love in order for it to find resolution in the second book. Even more, these two have messed up thoughts about relationships, and by the end of this first book, they are only beginning to figure it out, which means they will need to work through their character psychologies before they can even consider finding a relationship together. I think, once they do, it’s going to be an explosion of romance. But…by the end of Falling Out of Hate with You, they aren’t quite there. There is the promise of a happily-ever-after, and Lauren Rowe doesn’t really leave you hanging on a huge cliffhanger. Therefore, the ending of this book feels satisfying, and there isn’t a huge urgency for the next book at that moment. Thankfully, Rowe isn’t making us wait too long, given that the second book of the duet is releasing shortly. 

All the ways that Lauren Rowe has constructed Falling Out of Hate with You and this duet seem intentional and smart. This is honestly my first Rowe read, and I’m impressed with her universe building, her extras for her book universe, and her ability to see beyond one book to many. The fact that she’s done one of my favorite things in her book, namely creating a song and providing it for her readers, makes me love this story even more. 

I’m not lying. If you want to explore rockstar romance OR you’ve read Rowe’s rockstars before, then you’ll want to read this book. Be forewarned, though. Savage and Laila won’t be your favorite people because they haven’t yet learned to be vulnerable. You see the fringes of it in Falling Out of Hate with You, but you know there is the promise of a big love in book 2. Be patient, and stage dive into this book…

In love and romance, 

Professor A

Blurb:

“She went home with someone else that night?”

Hearing the disbelief from my best friend’s mouth makes the events of my failed date sting that much more.

I would like to make it known, I have a lot more swagger than what it seems. I don’t normally ask a girl out, have her fail to recognize it’s a date, and then give me a high five–as if I’m her wingman–and take off with someone else.

No. Normally I’m the one taking the girl home but with Stella, it’s been one failed attempt after another and frankly, I’m done trying.

But thanks to my best friend getting married in Hawaii right before the school year starts, I’m stuck on a tropical island, watching Stella parade around in what she claims is a bathing suit.

Unfortunately, that’s not the worst of it, just the tip of the iceberg. Because what I think is going to be a relaxing vacation, avoiding the one girl I can’t seem to make it work with, has turned into a spectacle of being recruited as Stella’s doting fake fiancé so she can save face with an old “friend” from high school.

Now I’m navigating through purgatory while trying not to get turned on by the way she holds my hand or kisses my jaw. It’s all fake, that’s what I keep telling myself, even though it feels entirely too real.

Excerpt:

“Do you want to sit next to Stella on the airplane?” Arlo asks.

“What? Fuck, no,” I say while turning up the game so I can hear the announcers over my tedious, wedding-planning best friend.

Arlo snatches the remote from my hand and turns off the TV. The room is silent for a moment before uproarious objections fill the air.

“Gentry is up next,” Gunner, my other best friend and former teammate, complains from next to me. “He’s three for three so far.”

“We need to talk,” Arlo says in that stern, alpha-like voice that won over his fiancée. Little does he know it doesn’t work on me.

I reach for the remote but he swats my hand with a resounding thud, causing me to yank my hand back. “What the actual fuck, man?”

When I decided to have the guys over to my loft, I assumed we’d tear up some wings, drain some brews, and watch the Bobbies game. Never in my wildest fucking dreams would I have pictured Arlo Turner, the grumpy curmudgeon of the Forest Heights English department, to roll in like a beaming bride, holding a wedding planning folder to his chest, and consume the night with questions about what he should wear and if coconut cake is too “Hawaiian-y” for his Maui destination wedding.

But here we are.

“Cut the crap, Romeo.”

“Cut what crap?” I reach over to the coffee table and pick up my almost empty glass of beer.

“I’m not about to have the Bickersons attend my wedding, so what the hell is going on with Stella?”

“Nothing is going on,” I answer, then take a small sip of my beer, making the liquid last so I don’t have to get up for a refill.

Gunner leans in and asks, “If we get to the bottom of the problem, can we turn the TV back on?”

“Yes,” Arlo answers.

“Then it was the baseball game he took her to.”

“Dude,” I say in protest while sitting up on the couch. “What the fuck happened to don’t say anything?”

Gunner unapologetically shrugs. “I really want to watch the Bobbies kill the Rebels in interleague play.”

“What baseball game?” Arlo asks. “Do you mean the game you took her and Cora to?”

“Yup.” Gunner pops a chip in his mouth from the bowl on the coffee table. “Except Cora wasn’t supposed to go. It was supposed to be a daaate,” Gunner drags out.

“You asked Stella out?” Arlo asks, shocked.

“Way to sell me out for a game, you dick.”

Not showing an ounce of remorse, Gunner stands from the couch and takes my glass from me.

“I’ll top you off. You’ll need it.”

Seething, I pass my hand over my head and say, “Yeah, I asked her out. She invited Cora. End of story.”

“That’s not the end of the story,” Gunner says from the kitchen, the open concept of my loft allowing his voice to carry to us easily.

When you think a friend is trustworthy and then they go and shock your fucking nuts right off by divulging everything you told them in secret . . . without even a blink of an eye. Gunner is dead to me.

You’re probably wondering why I didn’t say anything to Arlo about what happened, given he’s one of my best friends, right? It’s simple. Gunner got me drunk and I relished in the comfort of far too many cold beers and a listening ear. If it wasn’t for that, I’d have kept my mouth shut, because the entire incident was fucking humiliating.

Between you and me, I’ve liked Stella Garcia, the Spanish teacher at Forest Heights, for a while now. Far too long actually. I can’t quite pinpoint when it happened, but all I know is over the three years I’ve known her, I’ve been pining after the girl for the majority of the time.

Fucking bold, quick-witted with a sharp tongue, loves sports, shy when it counts. Flat-out gorgeous with her long, wavy brown hair and fascinating green eyes that have a ring of brown around the pupil. She’s had my attention for a while and last year, I decided to finally make a move.

Enough was enough. We shared too many dinners together as friends. She’s pressed her lips to my beer glass without a second thought way too many times. The moment presented itself, I grew a pair, and asked her out to a baseball game knowing she loves watching the sport as much as I do.

But fuck did it backfire.

“What’s the end of the story?” Arlo asks, growing agitated. His patience runs thin, which is surprising, given his profession of educating the youth.

He’s not going to drop it.

Arlo’s relentless when he wants to know something.

Dragging my hand down my face, I say, “It was supposed to be a date.” Gunner sits next to me and hands me my refilled glass, which I gladly take. “She invited Cora. Which was fine. We had a good time, I still sat next to Stella, and we shared jokes even if there was a third wheel. But it was what happened afterwards that—”

“That gutted him,” Gunner finishes for me. When I snap a look at him, he smirks. “That’s what you told me. Just thought I’d help tell the story.”

“I wasn’t gutted.”

Maybe I was a little.

Hell . . . I was humiliated.

Gutted isn’t a strong enough word for what happened.

“What the fuck happened after? Christ. Why are you taking so damn long to get to the point?” Arlo practically growls.

“Go easy on our guy.” Gunner grips my shoulder. “He was embarrassed, man.”

“It’s fine, I’m over it now,” I say in a passive-aggressive tone.

“You’re clearly not if you and Stella can’t even be in the same room together. I don’t want anything ruining this trip for Greer, and your constant arguing with Stella is driving everyone fucking crazy.”

“Great, then I just won’t talk to her. Simple.”

“Just tell him,” Gunner says, nudging me.

Christ.

Staring down at my beer, I quietly say, “She went home with someone else that night.”

The room falls silent.

They don’t have to react for me to know what they must be thinking. They know I’ve liked Stella for a while. They know I’ve been trying to figure out a way to ask her out.

And this . . . hell, this was an epic fail on my end.

It wouldn’t be as bad if I weren’t already carrying a chip on my shoulder about the way I was forced to twist my life around.

Five years ago, everything changed.

Five years ago, I was stripped of the one thing that brought me life.

A ruptured Achilles tendon ended everything for me.

I never got the chance to appreciate my last game.

I never had the opportunity to sit on the field and say goodbye.

Instead, playing professional baseball was stripped from me and I was forced to fall back on my teaching degree I earned while playing in college.

To say I’m bitter, resentful, and fucking angry . . . yeah, that’s an understatement.

I live with regret daily and harbor more animosity than anyone should.

So, when I took Stella to the game, on a date, hoping to tell her how I feel, and she went home with someone else, it fucking stung.

Do you know what stung more, though?

The fact that she looked right past me and instead went for a rookie on the Bobbies.

Why go out with a washed-up baseball player turned phys ed teacher with a slight limp in his walk, when you can go out with an unmarred professional baseball player?

Yeah. There’s resentment for a reason. She chose the star. That’s who she wants.

That’s who I’ll never be.

And that’s why I plan on staying as far away from Stella Garcia on this trip as I can.

And when we get back to Chicago and the school year starts, everything will go on as planned.

Avoid. Avoid. Avoid.

Too easy, right?

Guitar and accessories on a stone background. Desk musician, headphones, microphone and more.

 

Blurb:

I’ve tried to like Adrian Savage, the mercurial frontman for Fugitive Summer, while serving as his band’s opening act on tour. We’re stuck together for three months, after all. And I’m well aware I’m lucky to be here.

 

But it’s proved impossible. He’s far too rude and dismissive a guy to get along with. And way too good at getting under my skin. In fact, at this point, I think it’s fair to say I downright hate his guts.

 

Global thirst trap that he is, though, I’m finding it extremely difficult not to want to jump Savage’s bones, despite how much he infuriates me. I hate myself for it. But my body is going rogue on me. It doesn’t matter, though. I’m determined to resist him.

 

In fact, what I’ve decided is that, as long as I’m here and stuck with him, I’m not only going to give Savage the sound tongue lashing nobody else around here has the balls to deliver, I’m going to bring that bad boy to his knees.

✍🏻 The Queen of Steamy, Forbidden Romance has a cover for you. Blame It on the Tequila is coming May 27th, and it’s gonna be a good one. You can preorder your copy of it TODAY! ✍🏻

 Fiona Cole has revealed the cover for Blame it on the Tequila!

Releasing: May 27, 2021

Photographer: Regina Wamba

Designer: Najla Qamber Designs

It started on a dance floor after too much tequila and ended with looking into the handsome face I never thought I’d see again. In-person, at least.

I saw his face all the time on magazine covers.

To the world, he’s Parker Callahan- famous rockstar.

To me, he was the boy I loved, the stepbrother who left me behind to follow his dreams.

After our tequila-fueled encounter, he wants me back but that’s not a road I’m ready to walk down again. He broke my heart once, and even five years later, I’m not sure I could handle another blow.

When a once-in-a-lifetime offer comes my way, even my broken heart isn’t enough for me to be able to turn it down. I agree to join the band’s tour and help Parker write his next album–but this time I’m not falling in love.

This time I’ll walk away.

If there is one thing life has taught me, it’s that love never goes to plan–especially when Parker is involved.

✍🏻 It’s Cover Reveal Day for Avery Flynn. Flynn’s next rom-com, Mama’s Boy, is coming June 21st, and you can preorder it NOW. ✍🏻

 Avery Flynn has revealed the cover for 

Mama’s Boy, Last Man Standing Book 1!

Releasing June 21, 2021

He’s exactly who you want to take home.

Top three lies about mama’s boys:

1. That we don’t know what we want. That one is straight up BS. I know exactly what I want–to win this bet with my cousins by any means necessary even if it means finding the worst possible date in all of Harbor City and agreeing to whatever she asks in exchange for her pretending to fall for me.
     
2. That we are soft, little wimps. Yeah, you don’t get to be CEO of a multibillion dollar company by letting other people take advantage of you. So as soon as I realize my date Fiona Hartigan isn’t exactly who she appears to be, there’s nothing that will stop me from figuring out the truth–no matter how many dates it takes to unravel that mystery.
     
3. That we don’t know how to kiss. Oh yes we do. The only problem is that once I start kissing Fiona, I don’t want to stop and I have to because we’ve already agreed that all of this is temporary.

Now I’m the guy that every woman wants to bring home to mom–except for the woman I’m fake dating and falling in love with for real.

✍🏻 Professor Romance’s 5 ⭐️ Review: Louise Bay’s Mr. Smithfield ✍🏻

Overall Grade: ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

I should encourage you to read Louise Bay’s newest romance, Mr. Smithfield because its central message is one that seems relevant and necessary for our world today: that life is best lived when we accept that the good times in life are made better through our trials. 

You should read it because her hero, Gabriel’s message about wanting to correct the wrongs of his upbringing through a carefully constructed life that doesn’t quite match reality is a profound idea. 

You should also read it because her heroine, Autumn’s journey entails expecting the worst from life and being surprised when she finds the blessings of it. 

I should also say that Bay’s intricate weaving of the rain with the sunshine metaphor throughout her story manifests her overall message beautifully, reminding you that she is an expert storyteller who keenly attaches her story to your feelings. 

I should also recommend you read Mr. Smithfield because Bay writes some steamy romance in general, but add in an older, broody hero and a younger, insightful heroine together, and you’ll find some explosive chemistry as Gabriel and Autumn fight their attraction before falling prey to its hold. 

I should be telling you that you should read this book because the coven of male friends (coined by Beck’s wife, Stella) provides the backbone of Mr. Smithfield and its predecessors. As they jibe and joke with each other, they also provide each other with the seminal wisdom that allows them to fall deeply in love with their heroines. I adore Tristan, Joshua, Andrew, Beck, Gabriel, and Dex together. Through three books, I’ve loved the community of these men as they encourage and support each other through their work and romantic challenges. Bay also allows their group to be the levity of her stories.

But, honestly, beyond the romantic journey of Gabriel and Autumn, which is quite lovely, what I loved the most, what attached itself distinctly to me as I read Mr. Smithfield, is my craving for travel. It’s such a small portion of Autumn’s story, but this book makes me want to travel again. Having traveled to Europe for the first time two summers ago, on reading this book, I found myself back in London, back in Paris, back in Rome, and I missed it deeply. Feeling those feelings along with the developed attachment to Gabriel and Autumn’s story made this book of the three my favorite. That nostalgia coupled with the spirit of Bay’s hero and heroine reminds you why you can’t help but read her stories. 

Every time I think she can’t outdo herself, Louise Bay does it every time. Mr. Smithfield is another example of why you should have read her booklist, joined her Facebook group, and downloaded Mr. Smithfield today. Gabriel and Autumn’s journey is a special one because it’s a reminder that the trials of today will only make the sun shine brighter tomorrow. 

In love and romance,

Professor A

Timing is everything.

Presley Hale and Sebastian Vargas are no strangers to goodbye. Their high school summers were spent wrapped up in each other until she would inevitably go home to California. One season after college, Sebastian finally escaped the little Texas town to travel the world, and they said goodbye for what they thought might be the last time.

Sebastian went one way. Presley went the other.

For the first time in five years, they’re both in town, but the timing is no better than ever. So the only thing to do is what they do best. Keep it casual.

Friends with benefits.

They’ve done it before—doing it again will be easy.

But their hearts don’t get the memo.

When the lines of their arrangement blur, Presley and Sebastian are faced with decisions they’ve avoided for years. And that’s not even their biggest problem.

A small town in danger of failing.

A secret that could tear them apart.

And two hearts that can’t hide anymore.

They’ve shared so many summers, but none compare to what they’ll face.

Timing is everything.

And their time is almost up.

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

This is my last chance to ditch my playboy reputation and finally fulfill my potential. So I’ve made three rules for our biggest season yet: no boozing, no women, and no scandals.

Especially that last thing.

So who do I befriend on the very first day back at the rink? An amazing female hockey player. I want Sylvie in a way that’s more than just friendly. I crave her. But I have a championship to win, and so does she.

Then she gets her heart broken by my teammate, and I make the foolish mistake of comforting her in the best way I know how. Our night together sets off a string of sins.

Nobody can know about our affair, especially my overprotective teammate. I can’t let anyone see into my greedy little heart. Not even her.

The things I want from her, and the things we’ve already done? If anyone knew, there’d be bombshells.
