Release with Review:: Rules of Friendship by CA Harms

17 August

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…


Review:
When thinking of friends turned to lovers, I always refer to 'When Harry Met Sally', don't you? "What I'm saying is--and this is not a come-on in any way, shape or form--is that men and women can't be friends because the sex part always gets in the way." -Harry explaining his entire philosophy to Sally
When beginning this, that was the scene in my head. Dawson is sitting there thinking about his best friend in a sexual manner, knowing that as a friend he really shouldn't be. But don't friends make the best lovers? Reese will find out when Dawson puts it all on the line.
This book was really light and funny. It was true CA material, right down to it, a little drama but nothing that makes your heart stop and the characters are really easy to relate to. You want to be friends with this group. You understand where they are in life. The story is cute and I loved it. 


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.
She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. You will always find her with her kindle or paperback in hand as it is her favorite pass time.

Amazon/Goodreads Review Tour:: That Guy by Belle Brooks

12 August
Title: That Guy
Author: Belle Brooks
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: August 8, 2018
A modern way of finding love. One deserted island of luxury. Two people. Three out cards. And a whole lot of possibilities.
Melinda takes the advice of her best friend, Chris. She signs up to a new dating service that pairs you statistically to the one you’re supposed to love. Finding it — love that is — using the more conventional methods, has not been a successful venture for Mindy, and with her biological clock ticking, she uses a more desperate method and takes the plunge into a possible happily ever after.
The thing is, when she boards the boat to a secret location, she doesn’t realise the man waiting for her is someone she’s previously met.
Chance encounters occur more frequently than we realise. Being blind to them is part of a bustling world. But, being faced with them can lead to a hilarious three weeks between two opposites who might just attract.
“OMG this book was bloody hilarious; I laughed till I had to cross my legs and run to the loo (you'll get this if you have kids like me)My other half thought I was losing the plot and kept giving me concerned glances with the strange noises that were coming from my corner of the lounge.” - Beckie Bookworm

“This book is every bit as entertaining as every other review is going to tell you, and I highly recommend this as a must read! You just have to, you won’t be sorry. 5 wet myself laughing Stars.” - Marnie

“‘THAT GUY’ gets a phenomenal 5* from me. I really cannot recommend this highly enough. I do know that if you are a fan of RomComs or Ms. Brooks .. this book needs to be read for the full effect.” - Trish Brown
