About Must Love Coffee
 
Gwen
I was stripped of all my own desires and wants when I was married to my ex-husband. I now carry a list with me—a list that will help me choose a man that will put me first in life. Then the storm cloud of an entitled millionaire appears in my life and knocks me off my axis. This man sends so many mixed signals, my body either quakes with anger or passion when I’m around him.

I’m his son’s teacher and his tenant, but I find myself wanting more.

Leo
My life is run with precision with little regard for others until a woman in crazy clothes challenges me to be a better father. She’s one of the few people that puts me in my place and maybe for this very reason—I want her more than I can articulate. With her failed marriage and list of requests she needs from her next partner, I know she’s my future. My life is less than perfect, and with it—baggage that follows me everywhere. Does she want my kind of crazy in her life?

I’m her landlord and an a**hole, but  I find myself wanting more.

Where to begin? For starters, you must love coffee…

After all, 425 Madison Avenue is the perfect place to fall in love.

*Each story is completely standalone.

My review:

I loved this book so much!

Gwen is finally divorced from her controlling, manipulative ex husband. She used her settlement from the judge (who is one of my favorite characters, for real) to purchase a small apartment for herself and her daughter Luna at 425 Madison. She is a teacher at a nearby private school where 10 year old Luna attends. She has a run in with Leo, the father of Teague, one of her first graders. The confrontation opens Leo’s eyes to what he is doing to his children by working so hard all the time. What good is the money if his kids hate him?

After discovering Luna and Leo’s 10 year old Olive are best friends, the families start spending time together, and Leo and Gwen fall in love. However, her ex husband wants his revenge and will drag up the past to try to hurt them. When it comes down to Leo or Luna, what can Gwen do?

This book was amazing. First the obvious: redhead √ Harry Potter love √ Marvel love √ Sundays spent in PJs with a good book √√

It’s like Gwen is me! Except I could never be a teacher.

I love that Gwen has a list of “musts” for the next person who will win her heart. She suffered for years with her ex husband and deserves to be treated well. Leo is a great father and an amazing partner to Gwen. He is simply perfect for her.

There was one tiny thing I didn’t like in the book: Hedwig is a SHE, not a he!

In short, get this book! It is fantastic and you will love it. If you are also a Potterhead, you will love it even more. I can’t wait to read the rest of this series and get to know the other residents more.

Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥

Excerpt
Gwen:

 

Leo stands with so much force it pushes his chair over, bumping the table and knocking some of Teague’s test results to the floor.
“Mason, this teacher is clearly incompetent and I want her replaced—no, fuck that—I want her fired.”
I don’t give Mason much time to reply. I stand just as fast and, though he has a good six inches on me,  I’m in his face.
“Okay, Mr. Eastman, you want me fired so badly, answer me this. How much time do you spend with Teague each day on his homework? I’ve sent home small readers with questions to be answered each day, even if you have to write the responses for him. I’ve never gotten a completed form in return.” As I speak, the harsh teacher tone takes over and demands his attention. I don’t miss how his hands curl into fists when I continue. “I’ve sent him home with a phonetical set of flash cards and a completion sheet. After ten times, he gets a reward. I have yet to receive that back. The same goes for number recognition. So, you tell me I’m not doing my job. But, since turnabout is fair play, how are you doing on your end? It takes a village, Mr. Eastman. Let me know when you move in and we can talk.”

 

Leo:

 

How is it that a man who has access to countless hot women wakes on the morning of his kid’s playdate like it’s fucking Christmas? And with a jolly ripe boner at the thought of his son’s teacher. Yeah, this guy here. I’m not ashamed of it but is it appropriate to ask this woman out while we are essentially chaperoning our daughters? See, I haven’t always been a manwhore. With Dez, I was the most committed father and husband—I only had eyes for her. And maybe these new feelings make it obvious I’m ready to start over again.
With the first glance at my phone, I’m accosted with a shit-ton of texts from Donna. She invited me over last night but I’d told her I was taking my kids to the movies. This crazy, bleached-blonde tried to invite herself with us to see Venom. She had no idea it was a Marvel movie, in addition to being oblivious to the fact that I’d never let her get within arm’s reach of my kids. A good fuck she’s been but that’s all she ever could be. And now, after imagining the teacher as a person I want more than sex with, I’m on the offensive with today’s playdate. But don’t fucking get me wrong—I sure as fuck want to fill her up—but I want more than that. I can’t fucking believe that I, Leo Eastman, am admitting to this.  
Shit, shit, shit. But it’s true.

Everything’s Better With Kimberly – Still Time to Enter the Giveaway!

See my review here

Title: Everything’s Better with Kimberly
Author: Lucy Eden
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 31, 2019
Blurb
Kimberly Simmons is gorgeous, brilliant, and way out of my league. She’s definitely not the type to fall for a guy who walked away from his family’s fortune to become an
architect. Good thing, too, because she works for Wolfe Industries, making her
completely off-limits. Nailing this pitch to Wolfe’s CEO is exactly what I need to make my bosses forget about the last time I mixed business with pleasure. Too bad she has the most beautiful brown eyes and dazzling smile I’ve ever seen. Too bad I can’t stop staring.
Adam Price is a talented rising star architect at Will and Peking Designs. His newest design submission for The Wolfe Industries Caribbean Expansion is set to dazzle my
CEO. If Adam’s design wins, with my help, I could get promoted, which means
his big strong arms and gorgeous lips are strictly forbidden. It’s a good thing, too, because he has a reputation for leaving a trail of broken hearts all over Manhattan and I’m pretty sure I couldn’t survive a second heartbreak. Too bad every word he says makes me smile. Too bad he gives me a sense of calm I haven’t felt in a long time.
Keeping their relationship strictly professional for the sake of their jobs was the perfect excuse to stay away from each other. Too bad fate and undeniable chemistry have other plans…
This standalone, workplace/forced proximity romance features characters from the previous novellas Everything’s Better With You and Cherishing the Goddess, is full of
alphas and steam, and has NO cheating.

Excerpt
“I’m sorry to interrupt you, but are you Adam Price?” It was
his turn to be shocked and he smiled again.
“I am. How did you know that?” 
The Man-Whore. I was sitting next to the Man-Whore.
Just a guess.” I shrugged.
“Well, I assume from your sudden change of expression, my
reputation precedes me.”
My poker face needed some serious work. I tried to plaster
on a professional smile. “You studied architecture at The Pratt Institute for
both undergrad and grad school. You’ve worked on an impressive number of
international projects before becoming the youngest senior architect at Will
and Peking Design. Now, you’re on your way to Barbados to pitch WP for a
hospitality project for Wolfe Industries.”
“That’s pretty impressive and spot on.” He nodded
appreciatively. “Who are you?” 
“Thanks,” I said with a nod, feeling like I’d dodged a very
uncomfortable bullet. “I’m Kimberly Simmons. I work for Wolfe. I’ll be working
with you on the pitch.”
