About this ebook

A best-friends-to-lovers, second chance, only-one-bed-in-the room romance!

How to resist sleeping with your best friend when you’re stuck in a hotel room with the charming, glasses-wearing hottie.

1. Slather your face in a grapefruit mask

2. Wear a big, fluffy robe

3. Make him do the same.

Oops. Too bad our libidos have other plans.

But after a night of epic, soul-shattering banging, I’ll have to wrestle the sex genie back into the bottle the next morning when I get the big news. Nolan and I just landed a once-in-a-lifetime for our scrappy online restaurant review show. We’re going to New York for a month and we’ll be together in a hotel all the time.

I’ve already lost my best friend once, so I’ll do whatever it takes to resist thoroughly delicious Nolan again.

Until I learn whatever it takes might cost me everything.

SHUT UP AND KISS ME is an MF, dual POV, friends to lovers, sexy, emotional standalone romance!

The second instalment in the Happy Endings Series and what a perfect addition, this is Nolan McKay and Emerson Alva’s friends to lovers story. Running a food blog together this couple shouldn’t be crossing the line, there is not only their friendship at stake, their business could suffer as well but hiding the attraction they feel is becoming harder and harder. Their control over their feelings is really going to be put to the test when they spend a month together in New York working so will they cross the line and more importantly will everything they value survive if they do…… There isn’t anything negative I want to say about this book, it ticked all my boxes, I fell hard and fast for the fun, flirty Nolan and I adored the strong, sassy Emerson but it was their drive and determination that I admired the most. This is a wonderful romance with plenty of witty banter and sizzling chemistry, it’s a story that every romance lover needs to read and I highly recommend you one click now.

5 star review Shut Up and Kiss Me (Happy Endings #2) by Lauren Blakely There wasn't anything that I didn’t love about this book and it quickly became one of my top reads from Ms. Blakely. I know I am in for an entertaining, steamy read and that’s exactly what I got with Shut Up and Kiss Me. I really loved both Nolan and Emerson who run a food review blog/show together. The attraction sizzles between them but not wanting to lose her friend, Emerson is doing her best to keep her distance. However when the opportunity for their blog means that they will be spending a month together in New York, their will power will be tested. This was an entertaining friends to lovers story that ticked all the boxes for me. They know that it shouldn’t happen but sometimes the heart wants what the heart wants and the chemistry between them is to explosive to ignore. Could it finally be their time? I just loved these two, both separately and especially together. Emerson is sassy, feisty and a real go getter who deserves her shot at happiness. Nolan is a flirt, but a lovable one and for me he was swoon worthy. Both are determined to make a success of their business and I admired their drive and determination. I loved how their relationship was built on genuine friendship and the witty banter had me laughing out loud on a number of occasions.

One of my absolute favorite tropes is a friends to lovers. I feel it’s the connection they already have, and one or the other will realize that they can have both, a friendship and a relationship without the dynamics changing. One of my favorite things about reading a LB story, is her characters zest for life and their flirty banter, just makes me smile the whole time. With this book, I loved the uniqueness of the occupation they had, being vloggers and trying to make it to tv being food critics. Pretty cool! There were also some awesome cities they lived in or visited, San Francisco, Las Vegas and NYC - all of them this Aussie gal has sojourned too, so it was like I was there with them. Even though this is a rom-com, each main character had a past relationship or quandary that added another deeper level to this book. Emerson and Nolan were different but the same, and when they surrendered to the passion, it was like two pieces of a puzzle fitting back together. Lastly, there were some hints or even a first chapter of the book/s to follow, with Jo, Jason and TJ, can not wait for each of their books to be released.
