  CoverKeane Morgan wouldn’t return any of my calls or texts, and I was pissed as hell about it. I didn’t want to drive from Seattle to L.A. with the guy any more than he wanted to drive with me, but I had no frickin’ choice in the matter–at least, not if I wanted to use his brother Dax’s coveted parking spot at UCLA.

Okay, so it turned out Keane was objectively gorgeous, and, fine, pretty funny, too. But did he have to be so damned in love with himself? I mean, jeez, the cocky way he flashed those dimples was just so orchestrated. And, honestly, what kind of guy uses the phrase “baby doll” with a straight face? Oh, that’s right: the kind of guy who’s a male stripper.

Yup, the cocky jerk turned out to be Seattle’s answer to Magic Mike, a stripper known as “Ball Peen Hammer”–which meant Keane Morgan was emphatically not the kind of guy I’d ever fall for.

Not. At. All.

No freakin’ way.

Well, until Keane convinced me to fall for him, that is.

Which I did.



Here are my Happily Ever After Novel Thoughts…

OMG!! What did I just read?!? That was flipping hilarious and soul touching. One of the best books I’ve read this year!!

I would love to hang out with Keane and the whole Morgan crew. They are a wonderfully close and open family who see the best and worst in each other without negating the live they have for each other.

Ball Peen Hammer sounds like he would be wonderful girls’ night entertainment.

I love the relationship between Keane and Zander. They are a match made in heaven! I really enjoyed their interactions and banter. I also love how all the friends of each person in the Morgan family is also seen and treated as family as well.

Overall, this is one happy book! There are a lot of f-bombs, but they didn’t take away from the story. The way everyone conversates in this book is fun and catchy. I’ll have to watch myself to make sure I don’t incorporate any of the bad language into my vernacular as I don’t want my five year old repeating me.

So, if you want a fairly light, funny, sexy, wonderful read, grab this book and take it for a spin! You won’t be sorry!
