BOOK REVIEW

Thank you, Brooke, for writing wonderful, clean romances! They aren’t always easy to find!

THE LEFTOVER is the first book I’ve read by Brooke Williams and I was very pleased with it!

THE LEFTOVER is a romantic comedy and is written with an incredible wit! The writing is just right to keep the light moments light, and the not so light moments are mostly hilarious!

The multitude of characters are a wonderful mix. They are all believable, and I think I’ve met most of them on my life’s journey! They are very diverse and represent the best, the vainest, the most vapid, the most loyal, and a true egotist, an accurate sampling of humanity!

Megan struggles with her own self-image and her lack of confidence in herself is a challenge too many young women face! Brooke wrote her brilliantly and I couldn’t help but love her as she faced each challenge!

I found the love story to be a secondary theme and Cane to be the perfect imperfect man for it! He struck me as an unusual fellow, allowing his insecurities and imperfections to be seen. Cane had a depth to his character that endeared him to me in the long run!

Brooke Williams has a bestseller in THE LEFTOVER in my opinion and you should grab your copy right away!

I give THE LEFTOVER by Brooke Williams five steaming hot Room With Books cups of coffee!

ABOUT THE BOOK

I’ll be there.

Through thick and thin.

Ride or die.

You can count on me.

The promises people make. The vows we take.

Assumptions of the heart.

Emotion tells us how we feel, but life…life has a way of plunging us in boiling water, burning away our illusions, testing our faith, trying our convictions.

Love floating is a butterfly, but love tested is an anchor.

For Grip and Bristol,

Love started at the top of the world

On a Ferris wheel under the stars

But when that love is tested, will they fly or fall?

Blurb

They were best friends until they became roommates.

Booker Harris has spent the last several years pushing himself to become the best goalkeeper in the Championship League. Tired of living in the shadows of his headline-splashing brothers, he has finally carved a path of his own.

As a child, Poppy McAdams was content in her own little make-believe world, until the boy next door with dimples and pained eyes came barreling into her makeshift fort demanding all her attention.

Best friends for most of their lives, everything changes when Poppy abruptly leaves London for University.

Now she is back, and gone is the awkward girl from Booker’s youth. She has been replaced by a stunning woman with secrets.

Secrets that Booker is desperate to know.

Sharing a bedroom wall with your best friend from childhood quickly turns to anything but sweet and innocent.

 

 

BOOK REVIEW

Thank you, Amy Daws, for writing KEEPER, another Harris Brothers book that I truly enjoyed reading!

It would be very easy for an author to turn this series into frivolous man-whore books without substance! Fortunately, Amy Daws has delved much deeper into her characters than to allow this to be all they are about!

The Harris Brothers in KEEPER are as familiar to me by now as if they were my brothers indeed.

Booker, as the baby of the family, is an endearing fellow, yet filled with a multitude of emotions, which he holds tightly inside himself! He is a warm, living, breathing human being on paper!

Poppy is a wonderful girl I would enjoy adding to my list of close friends. She laughs, she cries, has insecurities, and is so real. Again, Amy has taken a concept of who she would be and made her come alive!

Then Amy draws the other family members from her previous books and enriches the story. The family continues, so it feels like checking in on old friends.

I’m so impressed with Amy Daws as an author and KEEPER is a must read! KEEPER rates five steaming hot cups of Room With Books coffee!

EXCERPT

“Did you go out a lot in Frankfurt?” I ask because I’m still curious to hear more about her time over there. “Did those German blokes you flirted with for tips show you a nice time?”

She twists her head to frown up at me, puzzling her brows at my random question. “Are we really going to talk about this?”

I shrug because, well, now that I’ve opened the can, I don’t really want to stuff it all back in. “Did you leave anyone behind broken hearted?”

“No,” she murmurs and a tense silence stretches out before us. “What about you? You have a girlfriend I should know about?”

I roll my eyes. “I wouldn’t have invited you to stay if I had a girlfriend.”

“Why’s that?”

“Because…look at you,” I scoff.

That tense silence returns, but this time I can hear her breathing. I can feel the rise and fall of her shoulders as she leans against me.

Her voice is soft when she asks, “What do you mean, look at you?”

I tug on my earlobe, feeling a stirring in my stomach that doesn’t have anything to do with the massive amounts of whiskey I consumed tonight. “I think it’s quite obvious, Poppy. You’re not merely a girl anymore. You’re…a woman. And that haircut. I don’t know. It just…suits you.”

She turns her head up and looks at me curiously. I return her gaze, noting the light dusting of freckles across the bridge of her nose. I don’t think I’ve ever noticed those before. She draws my eyes downward as she licks her lips and a warmth spreads between us.

All of the sudden, she sits up, pulling me out of the trance I have on her lips as she situates herself crisscross to face me. I inhale deeply as her hand slides into my hair right above my ear. “Looks like you could use a cut,” she croaks, combing through the thick locks. I expect her to pull away, but she lingers, her scent wafting over me. My eyes fall closed as she slices through every strand and traces her fingertips along the nerve endings on my scalp, massaging in slow, languid movements.

God, that feels good.

My head nods to the side as I slur, “I’ve missed you, Poppy.”

She exhales. “I’ve missed you, too, Booker.”

“No, I mean, I’ve seriously missed you.” Groaning from her touch, I add, “I put one of my lamps in your room. I know how you hate the dark.”

Silence ensues, so my eyes lazily open and find she’s watching me.

“I don’t know why I said that just now,” I husk.

Her hand falls away from my head, but I catch it with mine because, well, I’m not ready for her to stop touching me yet. I want to be close to her like we always used to be.

I slide my fingers between hers, loving the softness of her hands against the hardness of mine, the smallness of hers against the largeness of mine. She feels so good against my skin. I never want to lose Poppy again. I’ve missed having her near me like this.

Aching for more, I pull her to me. Her legs unfold as she tucks into my chest, one hand over my heart, the other still entwined with mine. She nestles into me like she did when we were kids and she’d been crying about one of the many animals that died at her dad’s clinic.

Pressing her nose into my chest, her shoulders rise as she inhales deeply. I can feel her warm breath through the fabric of my shirt and it feels good. Really good. I want her mouth to open so her breath goes from warm to hot. I want her lips to part, and I want to feel her tongue on my body. On me. Flesh against flesh.

I crook my finger beneath her chin and lift her face to mine. She looks beautiful. Familiar and comfortable, like a memory that I once lost. I lower my head so we’re eye-to-eye and softly brush her lips with mine. It’s a kiss of friendship. Of history. Of knowing someone so completely that you assume you know what their lips will taste like before you even touch them.

But I didn’t know.

I had no f*cking idea.
