From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Catherine Bybee comes a romance about childhood friends who marry in Vegas and embark on a wild ride to find their happily ever after.

With two protective older brothers and a traditional Catholic Italian mother, it’s surprising that Chloe D’Angelo can manage a date without someone in the family naysaying her romantic choice. And Dante Mancuso…oh, no. Her brother’s best friend is not a dating-app right swipe.

But when they are left unsupervised on a late night in Vegas, all of that changes. Add in a Vegas wedding chapel and a couple of “I dos” and Chloe wakes up with a ring on her finger and a hangover. Dating Dante was always a secret desire, but marriage? The rift that this news would cause in her family has the both of them keeping their nuptials to themselves as they scramble to undo their Vegas mistake.

Dante knew the rules: Chloe was off limits. Only he can’t stop once his mind starts to believe she might be his forever. Just as their attraction deepens, Chloe flees to Bali, desperate to clear her head.

All Dante has to do is keep her brothers from killing him and convince her that they are meant for each other. But first, Dante has to find her.


Review:

Charming, uplifting, and sweet!

Be Your Everything is an intimate, alluring tale that takes you into the life of the supportive, troubled Chloe D’Angelo who, after drunkenly marrying the man of her dreams during a pit stop at a Vegas chapel, travels to Bali to indulge in some rest and relaxation, find some peace from her lovable but overbearing Italian family, and give her self some time and space away from the one man, her brother’s best friend Dante Mancuso, who always seems to break her heart.

The writing is crisp and light. The characters are charismatic, loyal, and endearing. And the plot is an enchanting mix of life, love, heartbreak, friendship, introspection, palpable chemistry, familial drama, sizzling chemistry, awkward moments, and swoon-worthy romantic gestures.

I’m not sure there’s a Catherine Bybee book out there that I haven’t enjoyed and that isn’t well written with the perfect mix of heart, hope, and heat, and Be Your Everything is no exception. I  loved the storyline, I loved the characters, and I loved the happy-ever-after ending.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Catherine Bybee comes a bittersweet romance about the power of love in the face of heartbreak and loss.

Brooke Turner has always had a complicated relationship with her father. But when his health takes a turn for the worse, she drops everything to care for him. He’s her dad, after all, and he needs her. What Brooke doesn’t anticipate is the unraveling of her long-term relationship and a cross-country move to San Diego’s Little Italy.

Luca D’Angelo is the oldest of three children and a single father to a young daughter. When his mother rents the top floor of their house to Brooke, he’s angry. Who is this beautiful stranger with no ties to the neighborhood? Can she be trusted in such close proximity to his family?

As Luca learns of Brooke’s difficult journey with her ailing father, his heart softens. And Brooke, who witnesses Luca’s struggle as a single parent, develops feelings for him, too. But when it all falls apart, will love heal their wounded hearts?


Review:

Heartwarming, hopeful, and amusing!

When It Falls Apart is an uplifting, charming tale set in the colourful Little Italy neighbourhood of San Diego that takes you into the lives of two main characters. Brooke Turner, a young online marketer who needs to relocate after a recent breakup and another setback in her father’s health that requires him to live in an assisted living program she will be struggling to afford, and Luca D’Angelo, a single father who spends all his time raising his daughter and running his family’s restaurant.

The prose is sweet and light. The characters are kind, considerate, and hardworking. And the plot is a delightfully absorbing blend of family, friendship, self-discovery, awkward situations, tender moments, parenthood, support, love, community, and new beginnings.

Overall, When It Falls Apart is a heartfelt, romantic, engaging tale by Bybee that is a wonderful start to The D’Angelos series and an enticing introduction to this loud, big-hearted Italian family I can’t wait to read more about.

Family secrets and fresh romance collide in this heart-pounding Richter series installment by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Catherine Bybee.

Jacqueline “Jax” Simon knows how to expose secrets: she’s a skilled operative with MacBain Security and Solutions. When Jax hears her parents are divorcing, she races to London to find out why. She’s determined to learn the truth, especially when her investigation uncovers why her parents sent her to Richter, the German military school that made her a fighter.

Andrew Craig collects Jax at Heathrow Airport as a favor. He’s heard she’s a handful, but he didn’t know she’s dangerously gorgeous too. His instant attraction could change his life…or end it.

Jax doesn’t want to fall for Andrew, but soon he’s worming his way into her life. Together, they infiltrate Richter to discover if it has returned to its covert purpose: training children to be spies and assassins and blackmailing parents to look the other way. As the attraction between the two intensifies, so do the secrets exploding all around them. How deadly are those secrets—and who will survive?


Review:

Charged, colourful, and enticing!

An Unexpected Distraction is a smart, seductive, sinister tale featuring the talented Jacqueline “Jax” Simon who, after receiving a call from her brother informing her of their parent’s abrupt separation, returns to England, where she is quickly swept up in uncovering the underlying cause of her parent’s troubles, discovering how the military-like boarding school she attended in Germany may play a part, and accepting a helping hand from her brother’s handsome best friend, Andrew, who she reluctantly seems to have more than a passing fancy for.

The writing is steamy and intense. The characters are skilled, loyal, and reliable. And the plot is a seductive, mysterious tale of undeniable attraction, familial responsibilities, deception, corruption, secrets, danger, tender moments, and swoon-worthy romance.

Overall, An Unexpected Distraction is a menacing, alluring, edgy addition to the Richter series by Bybee that’s got all the elements we’ve come to know and love in her contemporary romance/romantic suspense novels, including a fierce heroine, a sexy sidekick, and a highly entertaining, adventurous storyline.

This novel is available now.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Catherine Bybee comes the steamy first novel in her new adrenaline-fueled Richter series.

As an employee of MacBain Securities and Solutions, Claire Kelly can certainly hold her own. Armed with an impressive set of covert skills, she’s more than prepared to tackle any job that comes her way…except one involving Cooper Lockman.

Cooper and Claire used to work together before his feelings for her sent him packing to Europe for six long years. But now he’s back and determined to ignore the still-smoldering heat that lingers between them.

Their current mission: go undercover together at a California high school to root out the mastermind behind a prostitution ring targeting young girls. The closer they get to the truth and the closer they get to each other, however, the deadlier their task becomes. As Claire and Cooper risk their lives to bring down their target, will their hearts be the final casualties?


Review:

Spicy, mysterious, and deliciously romantic!

Changing the Rules is a charged, alluring, suspenseful tale featuring the competent, handsome Cooper Lockman, who after finally returning to the California division of McBain Security and Solutions finds himself not only working undercover at a local high school as a substitute auto teacher and track coach to suss out those involved in a highly organized teen prostitution ring, but back working nice and close with the one woman, Claire Kelly, that caused him to flee to Europe six years ago and who he’s never been able to forget.

The prose is tight and seductive. The characters are dependable, multilayered, and swoon-worthy. And the plot is a steamy, rousing blend of friendship, family, tension, corruption, sizzling chemistry, flirty banter, red herrings, mayhem, sexy times, and dangerous situations.

Overall, Changing the Rules is an action-packed, menacing, addictive novel with irresistible characters that I devoured from start to finish. It captivated, amused, and thoroughly entertained me, and now I can’t wait for the release of the next book in the series, A Thin Disguise.

This novel is available now.

Book Rating: 9/10

New York Times bestselling author Catherine Bybee delivers the fifth heartwarming, flirty novel in the wildly popular Not Quite series.

Mary Kildare knows how to read people. It’s both why she makes a great therapist and why she refuses to trust the average bachelor. Staying fiercely independent has been her primary relationship strategy—until wealthy playboy pilot (and commitmentphobe) Glen Fairchild reappears in her life. After a yearlong teasing tug-of-war, Mary and Glen test the waters of attraction, only to find that their physical chemistry runs deeper than flirtation.

At first, a bicoastal romance suits them both—especially since Glen can swoop in and whisk Mary away on one of his company’s planes. But no matter how close they get, they’re still three thousand miles apart. And when Mary’s life is threatened, Glen realizes the one luxury he doesn’t have is time. Can he close the distance between them before it’s too late?


Review:

Sexy, sassy, and surprisingly suspenseful!

This is a satisfying contemporary romance story that has the right amount of everything; great characters, witty dialogue, steamy chemistry, and a touch of danger.

The writing is well done. The characters are charming, intelligent and likeable; complete with a charismatic playboy, and a reluctant therapist. And the plot has all the elements we love about rom coms, as well as a few extra twists that give it that little bit more.

This really is an engaging, easy read that is thoroughly enjoyable, and I highly recommend it.

This book is due to be published on September 20, 2016.
