Title: My Unexpected Love
Series: The Beaumont Series: Next Generation #2
Author: Heidi McLaughlin
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 12, 2018
Cover Design: Sarah Hansen @ Okay Creations
Ben Miller met the love of his life the day he crossed paths with Elle James in their high school cafeteria. New to Beaumont, he took a chance when he approached her. Their first encounter was everything his mother ever read to him about fairy tales. He saw the girl who would be his forever.

From the moment Elle James met Ben Miller they’ve been best friends. Everything they did, they did it together, from late night study sessions, family vacations, throwing bottles off the water tower, going to prom and finally moving to California for college.

However, after the almost tragic accident where she nearly lost her twin sister, Elle’s life hasn’t been the same, and neither has her relationship with Ben.

One fateful decision changes the scope of Ben and Elle’s relationship. For one, it means a new beginning. For the other, it means change.

5 Stars

Prepare for the emotional ride that was Ben and Elle. Heidi McLaughlin returns with the Beaumont Next Generation series in My Unexpected Love.

These characters drew me in, frustrated me and made me love them all at once!

Elle is so messed up after her sisters near death that she’s drowning in her own pain. Everyone around her sees it but doesn’t know what to do, including her best friend. Ben is so good, so kind and so in love with Elle. This pair I swear, I wanted to strangle them both, all the while rooting for them to find their way to the other.

So many angst filled moments. So many sighs and cries and tears. The scenes with Elle and her siblings, with Elle and her parents – all brought me both tears and so much love for these people. Harrison and Kaitlyn are the best kind of parents! I loved them all the more! 💜

Heidi did such a fantastic job of portraying Elle’s journey to acceptance. To realize that while life is fragile, you can’t hide away and numb your feelings. To realize that sometimes love is unexpected, but sometimes it’s been with you all along if you just look.

Heidi is a New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author.
Originally from the Pacific Northwest, she now lives in picturesque Vermont, with her husband and two daughters. Also renting space in their home is an over-hyper Beagle/Jack Russell, Buttercup and a Highland West/Mini Schnauzer, JiLL and her brother, Racicot.

When she’s isn’t writing one of the many stories planned for release, you’ll find her sitting court-side during either daughter’s basketball games.

Heidi’s first novel, Forever My Girl, will be in theaters on October 27, 2017, starring Alex Roe and Jessica Rothe.

amber review     5 STARS!!!!

Let me start by saying that Heidi did SOOOO GOOD!! This book! Guys I mean it, there just aren’t words adequate enough to describe the range of emotions brought by this story! It was heartbreaking and hopeful and angsty in a way that I just couldn’t stop reading. I’ve always loved this Beaumont Series from the first time I read Forever My Girl, so to now experience Noah and Peyton as adults? Well let me say there were a lot of tears! A LOT! And I may have yelled at the author while reading a time or 10, but it was simply perfection. I’m so totally in love with Noah Westbury as a grown man! He was everything and more that I hoped for, much like this book!  HOLDING ONTO FOREVER just became my new favorite Heidi McLaughlin read to date!! Just beautiful and wonderful and amazing!

Experience the novella that brought us back and is the perfect lead into Peyton & Noah’s story. FOREVER OUR BOYS is available now! Spend a long girls weekend in the Bahamas with Josie, Kaitlyn and Jenna to get the momma’s insights into their love journeys as well as the people their kids are growing into. These three are the best of friends for a reason. Here’s my review of this fun, fun story.

image4       5 Stars

You know those series that just make you feel good? The ones that the characters just become a part of who you are, so that when you come back to them it’s like coming home? Yeah Heidi McLaughlin and her Beaumont Series are that for me, and that’s what reading FOREVER OUR BOYS was a homecoming.

Josie, Kaitlyn and Jenna. The best of friends, all married to the best of friends. The story is set around them going on a girls weekend. I loved the snapshots into their lives now, what’s the same and what’s not, what they are struggling with and what they hope. I loved the looks back and the perspectives given. It was amazing and wonderfully written! Prepare yourselves because this novella is setting us up to the beginning of HOLDING ONTO FOREVER.

amber review             5 Stars

Heidi McLaughlin & L.P. Dover deliver once again!! Loved the latest in the Society X series! Okay let’s break this down shall we?! Play Room is the last (I’m pretty sad about this actually) in the Society X books and this one continues the exploration in this third of the private rooms. The room brings together Kai Robicheau and Alexandria Miller. Kai is definitely reluctantly checking out Society X, while Alex wants the anonymity and freedom that the private room offers. 

While the series may revolve around a sex club, the story wasn’t really so much about that as it was taking a chance, trying something new and then connecting to the other person. That was consistent thru the series, the connection to their partner. It was about exploration and realizing what worked for the individual and knowing when something felt wrong, like for Kai. Kai was reluctant and at times turned off by the club, but he is drawn to his partner and what he feels when he’s with her. The same was true for Alex as she just wants the freedom to explore his sexual fantasies without judgment. When she and Kai meet outside the club, they feel that same draw but are confused by it in a way because of “their partner at X” and what they get from the other there. 

The story was very balanced and the writing between Heidi and L is so seamless. I truly liked both of these characters. Loved the ease and comfort they have with each other, all the while trying to navigate their feelings amid hiding the secret of the play room. The club was a catalyst, but fate had them connecting in multiple ways even if they didn’t know it. I so loved this series and hope you’ll give it a chance!  

Excerpt
“Hello?”
“Alexandria, this is Jared from Society X. How are you?”
I gasp and look around, hoping like hell the woman beside me couldn’t hear. “Yes, hi. I’m doing good. You?” Grabbing my bottle of water, I hurry off the stair climber to a vacant corner across the room.
“Can’t complain. I’m calling because I have a proposition you might be interested in. You put in your application that you’re open to anything. Is that correct?”
My cheeks burn like fire. “Yeah, I guess so. What exactly is this proposition?”
He clears his throat. “I have a client who has particular tastes, or fetishes if you prefer. His partner can’t make it tonight, and I need to fill that spot.”
Swallowing hard, my heart races. I’m nervous just hearing him talk about it. “What will I have to do?”
“You, absolutely nothing. All you’ll have to do is lie there on your stomach while your partner massages your backside.”
“You mean my back?” I ask.
He clears his throat again. “No, your ass.”
I don’t know what comes over me, but I burst out laughing. “You’re joking, right?”
“No, I’m not.”
I hush up quickly. “I honestly didn’t know that was a thing. It’s an interesting concept.”
“Is it something you’d be interested in? You don’t have to be naked. Your upper body will be covered by a curtain so you can wear a shirt. However, below your waist, you’ll need to wear a thong.”
Keeping a straight face and not laughing is going to be the hardest part of the whole thing. How can someone get off by rubbing someone’s ass? “Sure, put me down. What time do I need to be there?” I say it before even really thinking it through.
“Eight o’clock. I’ll see you then,” Jared says.
“All right.”
We hang up, and I head straight for the gym door. There’s no way I can keep something like that a secret from my friends. Once outside, I call Dani.
“What’s up, girl?”
I rush to my car and hop inside. “You will not believe the phone call I just got.”
“What’s going on?”
I haven’t told her about being a member of Society X yet. “I kind of became a member of Society X.”
“Holy shit,” she squeals. “Seriously? Why didn’t you tell me at work today?”
Sighing, I pull out of the parking lot for home. “Honestly, I didn’t think I’d get a request so fast. My contact called me and said he had a proposition for me. And get this, it’s for the play room. The guy wants to massage my ass.”
Dani’s cackle is so loud I have to hold the phone away from my ear. “That’s priceless. Please tell me you said yes.”
I groan. “Unfortunately. What if I burst out laughing while this dude’s squeezing my butt cheeks?”
Dani’s laughing so hard I’m surprised she can even breathe. “I don’t know what to say. This is too funny. What kind of freak gets off on someone’s ass?”
“Obviously, the man I’m about to give my ass to.” I’m starting to think I made a mistake accepting the proposition. At least, I’ll have a good story to tell later. “Wish me luck.”
“Good luck, chickee. I want all the details.”
On the way home, I glance at myself in the mirror. What the hell am I doing?

amber review 5 STARS!!

One sexy tatted up Brit. One slightly insecure American. A week in Bermuda with fake names and a fake marriage. Could this fantasy possibly become reality?

In SEXCATION Heidi McLaughlin outdoes herself on the romance, the smexy factor and throws some good sarcastic snark in for good measure. From the start of this story I loved both characters, and I so appreciated the dual pov storytelling. Jackson and Story aka Jade just connected from first look. What starts as a fantasy, becomes real feelings that neither feel confident enough to admit. The twist comes after the holiday ends and then fate takes over.

I keep saying I loved the story, but that really doesn’t adequately sum up my feelings. Everything about their attraction, their fears, their conflict I just felt it and it worked for me on all levels. When Jackson commits that he’s not going away, and then Story tells him to chase her because she wants to be caught? SWOON to the Nth degree!! Jackson is definitely one of my favorite Heidi hero to date! Don’t miss this book!!

 

 

I laugh and find myself tempted by her hand, which sits on the metal table. After our impromptu snogging session, Jade put on a nice little sundress which has my imagination running wild and some strappy sandals. Her toes are painted a turquoise blue. I found it a little weird at first; normally I see reds or pinks on toes, but rarely a blue colour. I quite like it. I like it a lot. In fact, I’ve yet to find something about this woman I don’t like. 

“And yet, you didn’t. I came over and kissed you. You could’ve punched me, kicked me in the nuts, or groped me. I’m grateful you let me kiss you the way I did.”

She blushes again. “Why did you? I’m sure there are other, more beautiful women at the resort that would’ve been happy to oblige you.”

“But then I wouldn’t be here with my pretend wife, trying to get to know more about her.”

Her eyes don’t waver from mine as she takes a sip of her cocktail. “Do you really want to get to know me?”

“The fake you, yes. I don’t want to get cornered by one of the triplets and not know my facts.”

“Are they in fact, triplets?”

I shake my head. “I haven’t got a bloody clue, to be honest with you. Fake tits all look the same at the end of the day.”

Her mouth falls open into a sexy little O and images of other ways I can make that happen pop straight into mind. “I named them Muffy, Tuffy, and Buffy. The names seemed fitting,” she says with a shrug. 

I crack the fuck up. “Then that is what we’ll call them until they leave.”

“Do you know when that is? Or what room they’re in?”

I lean over the table and pick her hand up. “They leave after us, and no, I don’t, thank goodness. I don’t care either. I made you a promise and I always keep my promises.” I bring her hand to my lips and let them linger against her skin until a passer-by makes a comment about us being in love. 

Not love, lust though, and I couldn’t be happier that I chose her to be my distraction this week. When I finally let go of her hand, she picks up her drink and finishes it. 

“Want another one?” I ask, already standing by the time she nods. I lean down and kiss the top of her head, inhaling the scent of her shampoo. The smell of grapefruit assaults my senses, making my heart race. I groan as I walk into the restaurant. I could’ve easily waited for the waitress to come back to us, but I needed to step away from Jade for a minute. She’s fucking deadly with her innocent façade and I have a strong reason to believe I’m going to fall victim to her and love every minute of it. 

When I walk out, there’s a bloke talking to her as if it’s an everyday occurrence. I have never been jealous of any man until now. The pure rage I feel, watching him talk to my pretend wife almost takes over my body, yet I find the will to let it go. Who am I to stand in the way of her potential hook-ups?

What
readers are saying about STRIPPED BARE:
 
Stripped Bare is one of those stories that you
know is going to be great from the first page. It’s funny, extremely sexy,
emotional and heartbreaking which all combine for a sensational second-chance
romance read.
 
This is a modern day Pretty Woman but so much
better! Richard Gere has nothing on Finn McCormick!!
 
Oh wow. I have been in love with McLaughlin’s
writing since the start but this one could very much be my favorite book now by
her.
 
 
 
 
They don’t call it
the Strip for nothing. . . .
 
In this sinfully sexy Las Vegas
romance from bestselling author Heidi McLaughlin, a man who has it all reunites
with a woman who takes it all off.
 
Living in Sin City, Finn McCormick is
no stranger to one-night stands, but the last person he expects to find losing
big on the casino floor is a former high school fling. Even though Macey
Webster’s clearly down on her luck, she’s still a knockout, and she’s dressed
like a stripper—because she is one. Drunk off an unfamiliar cocktail
of lust, pity,
and compassion, Finn offers to pay
Macey’s debts if she cuddles up to him around town . . . and does whatever he
wants between the sheets.
 
Macey came to Vegas for one reason
only: money. She’s got a young daughter to support, and the tips
really are bigger in Vegas. But when she blows her earnings on
blackjack, her guardian angel is the rich boy who once stole her heart and
never called her back. Although Macey would love to turn the tables on Finn,
she can’t afford to refuse his proposition—and soon she’s enjoying herself much
more than she cares to admit. Macey’s used to baring her flesh, but baring her
soul will take far more courage.

5 Stars
I just totally devoured this story!! Macy and Finn are now totally a favorite couple and Heidi McLaughlin once again has knocked my socks off with her storytelling!

From the first time I read the synopsis for this book I knew I’d love it, but I have to say there was so much more to the story than I thought going in. It had so many things I adore. Hot, dirty talking alpha with a huge heart- check. A strong, determined heroine – check check. A second chance romance with two people so drawn to each other but unsure they deserve the other -oh yeah triple check. So many things I loved about both Finn and Macy, them finding each other again may have been a twist of fate but the way they were together was totally meant to be and totally beautiful.

Chapter 1
Macey
The stench of
deep fry emanates from my clothes. I hate the smell and I know the other girls
can smell it, but I ignore the looks they’re giving me and hustle through the
dressing room to my locker. The older women and the ones that have been
stripping here longer always look down on the younger girls and the newbies.
I’m somewhere in the middle. I stripped here when I was younger, during my
first trimester with my daughter, and then again after she was born when I had
my figure back. Actually, stripping helped me tone as a result of all the pole
work that I had to do. I took some time off after that, but I always come back
because the money is fast and somewhat decent. Each time I leave, though, I say
that it’s for good and that was the last time and yet a few months later, I
always find myself back again, knocking on Lew’s door, and asking for my spot
in the rotation back. Girls come and go around here and in this business you
can’t expect to make a lasting connection with anyone.
I strip down and throw my dress, apron and nylons into my bag as
quickly as possible before the stench of grease becomes any more noticeable. I
change into a thong and bootie shorts, add tassels to my nipples and cover them
with a bra before slipping a tank top over my head and stepping into an old
pair of cowboy boots that I picked up
at the secondhand store. I have an array of costumes meant to hit
the mark on every fantasy a man can have. Cowboys, librarian, naughty
schoolgirl . . . you name it I’m doing it. I need the money. More so now than
ever. My kid is getting older and she’s seeing things she shouldn’t, like her
grandmother being so drunk that she can’t get up to answer the door, or strange
men in the house. She’s ten and shouldn’t have to babysit an adult. Nor should
she
have to live in the slums, but that’s on me.
Seventeen and pregnant isn’t how I saw my life. I had had enough
of living with barely any food, no new clothes and the strange looks, so I
swore that I was getting out. I was smart, got good grades in high school, but
none of that mattered once I found out I was knocked up and the baby daddy had
already left town. I tried to tell his mother, but she took one look at me and
shut the door. Back then I didn’t, but I do now. I’d take that money and run
right across the tracks, under the bridge and through the fucking blueberry
bushes if it meant my kid wasn’t going to be a victim of a drug deal gone wrong
or end up with a drinking problem by the time she’s a teen.
 
Morgan though, she’s a good kid who loves to read and is a whiz at
math. She’s all I have in this world and I’ll do anything I have to, to make
sure she has food and clothes.
So I strip at night and wait tables during the day. Depending on
the day or night, one pays better than the other, but they’re jobs that I need.
I have a goal. I want to move Morgan and I into a better neighborhood. One
where kids want to play and not sell drugs. I want her to live in a place where
she feels safe and doesn’t need to hide in the closet of our bedroom because my
mother invited one of her friends over.
My dreams for Morgan are unreachable, I know this, but I try every
day to make them happen. I want such a different life for her that sometimes
when I look out the window of the city bus I’m on and I see other kids her age
walking along the street without a care in the world, I imagine her being one
of those kids. If only . . .

Promo: Home Run (Boys of Summer #2) by Heidi McLaughlin

Oh this book! Seriously it’s been days since I finished it and I’m still loving on Cooper and Ainsley! Have you checked it out yet? You really should! Heidi McLaughlin knows baseball and she has created such a great world within these Boston Renegades! I love all the characters, past and present, really can’t wait to read more of them.

Book 1 was Third Base focusing on Ethan Davenport and Daisy Robinson. I have to say that once I knew their story, I knew I wanted to know more about this team. Plus Ethan and Daisy were just a dynamic couple for me, but then Cooper Bailey and Ainsley Burke turned everything on it’s end. They had this whirlwind experience and then everything blew up. Watching them try to figure out their worlds and try to put the pieces back together was everything a good romance is for me.

Now I want to see where Heidi will take us with Travis Kidd, you get a sneak of Grand Slam’s chapter 1 and I can’t wait!! So grab Home Run for your weekend! I promise you won’t be disappointed!

Happy reading! Laters, Amber

Synopsis:

LOVE ISN’T A GAME . . .

I’ve given up everything for the chance to play major league baseball. Everything. Now I’m so close I can practically hear the crowd chanting my name. There’s nothing that could take my dream away from me . . .

Unless I lose focus. And Ainsley Burke is the most beautiful, distracting woman I’ve ever met. When I’m with her, I can’t think of anything else.

But no matter how much I want Ainsley, there’s no room for love in my game plan. I can give her a quick tour of the bases, but that’s it. Then I have to let her go. If she wants to think I’m a love ’em and leave ’em player, fine.

All dreams require sacrifice. I just wish this one didn’t mean tearing out my own heart.
