Our Review

‘Peas and Carrots.’

Well, grumpy sexy pants Duke might just be our favourite Tomcat to date! We bloody loved this third book in the Boston Tomcats series. A laugh-out-loud grumpy-sunshine, single dad, fake relationship, football sports romance with a delightful British actress love interest. How could we NOT love it! Kayley Loring and Connor Crais have once again, delivered a sexy, funny heartfelt romance.

‘I suddenly saw him through a different lens. He was a dad. A dad who didn’t want to disappoint his daughter.’

Callum ‘Duke’ Duquette (even his name sends shivers down our spines!) is the seriously sexy, grumpy steely faced superstar placekicker for the Boston Tomcats NFL team. He has two loves in his life that consume all his time and focus, and that’s his eleven-year-old daughter Chloe, his beloved team the Tomcats, and his teammates. Since his divorce, his focus has been on Chloe and football and he doesn’t have time for anything else, especially romance.

“Just don’t fall in love with me,” I teased. “Kay.” He said.

That is until the day a beautiful British actress by the name of Millie Darden quite literally falls into his arms in the Rebel Books Bookstore in Boston. The man with his arms around her instantly takes her breath away. For Duke, there’s a familiarity with the gorgeous woman in his arms. She’s none other than the famous actress who played Arabella Peacock in the movie adaptation of the popular wizard book, Quizzlemoore Academy. Not that this impresses Duke, he’s a book fan and never had any desire to watch the films. For Chloe though, Millie is a superstar!

“Thanks for the ride. Best of luck playing the wrong kind of football.”
“Best of luck starring in movies that taint popular culture.”

Millie and Duke hatch a plan for a fake romance – a move that helps them with a couple of social commitments and their profiles. Even though Duke detests the limelight, the ‘romance’ sees his daughter gain popularity, and finally, fit in. Duke can’t deny Chloe her happiness and agrees to a fake romance, with an expiration date.  But, grumpy Duke, never counted on the whimsical Millie to steal his heart. Millie never expected to lose her heart to Mr. Grumpypants.

‘I wanted to give and get, take and be taken, tease and be tormented – I wanted him to want me more than anything and to tell me what he wanted so I could offer all of it to him.’

The trademark text messages always manage to slay us! Seriously, they have us in fits. The Mums especially always tickle our funny bones, and we could relate to Millie’s mum and her misspelled text messages…’ we’ll grab your specs for you luvvy’ hehe. And the epilogues. LOVED THEM! A real feel-good giggle-inducing sexy romance! Exactly the sort of book we were in the mood for!

‘Behind closed doors, Callum Duquette was a randy, ravenous animal, and I loved it.’


#4 Callum Duquette. Placekicker for the Boston Tomcats. Former underwear model. NICKNAME: Duke.

I thought the most annoying thing about being a single dad was that my friends were always trying to find me a date. Until a sassy British ray of sunshine bumps into me at a bookstore. One accidental butt grab, a viral photo, and a lot of misunderstandings later, I find myself in a fake relationship with a movie star.

Now I’ve got my friends off my back, but the cheeky Brit has complicated my life even more.

She calls me the Duke of Grumpville.
I call her movies the end of civilization as we know it.

She calls my job “the wrong kind of football.”
I call her the one thing on Earth that can make me lose focus and control.

It’s getting harder to pretend I still want this to end after my team’s game in London.

I thought we were only faking it.
But getting to know the real Millie Darden changed everything.

Why can’t you? He’d thrown that bomb into her world. Why can’t you have what you want? Why can’t you be who you want to be? Why can’t you? With them she finally could. And she was going to be so very good at it.’

GREEN JEWEL (The Painted Daisies #2) by LJ EVANS

‘Heartache and sorrow hung over her so deep it bled through every vein.’


“Princess, when I love someone, it’s with my soul. It’s a full commitment. It’s a relationship that will grow, evolve, and change to fit us. I won’t ever stop trying to be the best man I can be. I won’t give up on us, through thick and thin.”


“Just don’t fall in love with me,” I teased. “Kay.” He said.


‘Sometimes passion was a whisper, other times a roar. This time? It was a storm.’
