She’s single and not ready to mingle.

After the end of a months-long relationship with Mr. All Wrong, Emery Bellerose isn’t looking for love. In fact, it’s the farthest thing from her mind.

With the paparazzi camped outside of her house she has no choice but to stay next door with the new neighbors. That’s when Emery meets the man who makes her feel things she never knew she could.

He’s alone and wants to keep it that way.

Four years ago Spanish heartthrob Rafael Cruz’s life crashed and burned in a way he’s never recovered from. With his ability to trust obliterated he vowed to stay single and unattached forever. 

But you know what they say about best-laid plans.

What’s supposed to be an uneventful family vacation in Malibu becomes a game changer thanks to Elvis, the meddling peacock no one realizes is playing matchmaker.





“You’ve already got one peacock, Emery—there is no need for another. What you need is a man.”

The intensity in his gaze heated my blood. I bit my lip as I cocked my head to the side. “Are you applying for the job?” I asked.

“I am,” he said. Sitting up straight, he leaned in closer and slid his hand behind my neck. 
There was a rightness to the way he held me, something I’d never known could be felt between two people. His hand cupping the back of my neck gave me all of the feels— as did the sensation of his warm breath against my lips as he hovered above me. His eyes stayed locked on mine as he held still, and I realized he was waiting for me to give him the green light. I nodded once, my stomach fluttering at the relieved smile he gave before he kissed me. 
Obviously I’d been kissed before, but when Rafael was the one doing it I realized I’d never been kissed well. I’d never felt more treasured than I did with one of his hands at the back of my neck while the other cupped my cheek. I raised my hands to his shoulders, sliding one around the back of his neck as he deepened the kiss. The first touch of his tongue against mine was electric, so much more than I’d ever known the act of kissing could feel like.
The heat and taste of him was so incredible that I couldn’t contain a moan as his tongue glided against mine. I shifted forward in an effort to be closer to him as my right hand trailed from his shoulder to his abdomen. The fingers on my left hand were busy running through his silky hair and still, I wanted more contact. I tried to get closer but without stopping the kiss, there was no way— and I damn sure wasn’t stopping. Either he sensed my frustration or he felt the same because the next thing I knew he’d dropped his hands to my waist. He lifted me up and into his lap like I weighed nothing, then groaned low in his throat as our upper bodies connected.

descriptiondescriptiondescriptiondescriptiondescription~WRITING – PLOT – PACE~
OMG…this book was ridiculously sweet. Like cavity inducing sweet. Which I am sure won’t be an issue in any way for a lot of readers. But personally, the lack of any real issues or angst stopped this from being a total 5-Star read for me. That is just me though, and I have mentioned many times of late that I prefer books that have a bit more “BITE” to them. In any case, this was still a very good read. The writing was fantastic. The pace was perfect (it did start to drag a little towards the end). The plot was engaging, and the ending was over the top sweet.


RAFE…I loved Rafe. He was smokin’ hot and had a filthy mouth. Given his past I expected him to be a little less ALL INfrom the start. Maybe a little distant and reluctant, but NOPE, he was pretty much 100% ret to go the SECOND he sees Emery. There is really nothing more to say about him as he was pretty much perfect and never did anything wrong (lol).


EMERY…I loved her character as well. Again, I expected some reluctance on her part given her history, but NOPE, she was ret to go from the second she saw Rafe as well. She was pretty much as perfect as Rafe.
This series is rich with secondary characters and again this book was no different. We see all of Rafe’s brothers. His parents. The couples from the previous books. I love the whole close knit family feel these books have. And of course, my FAVORITE side character of the entire book was ELVIS the peacock. I seriously want one as a pet now! Elvis needs to find his own HEA (lol).


Medium. I am pretty sure we are halfway into the book before any sex takes place but when we do start to get the sexy times, they are SMOKIN’ HOT. Like I mentioned, Rafe has a dirty mouth. I loved it. The couple also had good on page chemistry.


ZERO. Honestly, considering both the main characters pasts this book could have had some good angst added. And I’ll be honest I was a bit bummed out by this. Everything was just SO easy peasy. The couple never argued. They never had a single issue to deal with. Basically, unicorns were dancing through the tulips farting rainbows while leprechauns put pots of gold under their a$$es < — WHAT??!! It IS St. Patrick’s Day after all! (lol). There was like a blip of pointless OW drama and no OM drama.


Overall I really liked it. It was an easy and super sweet romance book. Was it perfect for ME, well NO, but it will be perfect for a lot of people who like their romances sweet, insta, and without any drama. Nothing wrong with that at all. The writing was perfect. The pace was perfect. The plot and the characters were both perfect. Even a bit of angst would have pushed this one to 5-Stars for me. Therefore yours truly is going to give this one two solid thumbs up and I can’t wait to see which brother is up next.description
