I thought that this was a good read. It was sort of hard to keep up with all that was going on, but this was my first read in the series as well. It took me a little bit to get caught up and orient myself with who was with who. I felt like I was in the middle of a soap opera though. Lots of drama and other things going on so there was no lull in the story at all.

Riley had just meet back up with an old fling, Ariela, and they are trying to make a go at a getting back together again. They have decided to talk each night to get to know each other again, but there has been a little wrench thrown in their plans when Shelby, a girl Riley has seen a few times, shows up and claims to be pregnant with his baby. We soon learn that Shelby is a gold digger just like all the other ladies that have told Riley they are pregnant with his child. Shelby has learned how to play the game and she is really pregnant. Shelby never expected for Riley to ask for a paternity test so soon though. Will the paternity test be the end of her gravy train with Riley? We will have to wait and see. Ariela was not happy about this but she tells him that it was before they started talking again so that they would figure something out to make it work.

Aiden and Keatyn are expecting and she is traveling with her acting career. Their relationship seems new to me because they seem to still be in the honeymoon phase.

Vanessa and Dawson have a lot going on in this one as well. Dawson spills everything about what happened with his wife and why she committed suicide. Dawson has brought his girls to try the school out and to see if they want to move in with Vanessa and him. His mother-in-law is not very happy about this at all. Dawson says that the girls need to be with him though.

This was a fast paced, quick read that will keep you on your toes trying to keep up with everyone. I have to say that I hope to be able to go back and read the earlier ones here soon because this seems like a great series to me. I am sure that we will get another installment soon because of the way that this one ends.
Review by Melanie H.


EXCERPT 
 I’m wearing a huge smile as I get dropped off at my building and walk through the door, talking to Ariela on the phone. Having her come back into my life after so many years has been both excruciating and exhilarating. But this weekend changed things. We faced our past together and, in one week, we’re going to decide if we want to pursue a future together. As much as I want to be with her, honestly, I’m a little torn about it. Part of me wants nothing more than to pretend we never broke up. But the reality is that she’s married. And even though she filed for a divorce, I wonder if it’s too much too soon. In a very short time—on a whim—she came to California, was reunited with me, slept with me, filed for a divorce, got a new job, and went back to Eastbrooke. I mean, how many more life changes can she throw at herself all at once? I loved her with everything I was in high school, and I was devastated when she left with nothing more than a goodbye. And since she’s come back, she’s wreaked more havoc in my life. Soon, I’ll have to decide if I want to risk another relationship with her. Even though she still looks like the girl I loved, she’s different—life, age, and time have that effect. “Riley!” A shrill voice stops me in my tracks, wiping the smile off my face. “Shelby, what are you doing here?” I ask, as she gets up from the couch in the lobby. “I told you I didn’t want to see you again.” “I need to talk to you, Riley. It’s important. Can I please come up?” I know girls like her. No way I’m letting her come up. Ever. “Shelby, as in naked, leather-strap, threesome Shelby?” Ariela asks in my ear. “Uh, hang on,” I say to her, putting the phone against my chest. Then I say discreetly, “Shelby, whatever you need to say, you can say here.” “God, you’re such an ass,” she hisses loudly. “I thought you might want to do this in private.” “I don’t want to do anything with you, in public or in private.” “Well, you’re going to have to now, Riley. Because I’m pregnant,” she says, uttering the words no man wants to hear from a three-night screw. “You’re what?” “Do you really want to do this here?” she asks, glancing toward my doorman. “Fine. Come up.” I drag her into the elevator. Once it closes, I say, “I don't know who you’ve been fucking, but if you’re pregnant, there’s no way that it’s mine.” “Yes, it is, Riley. I haven’t been with anyone since we broke up.” “We didn’t break up. You went to a few events with me. We fucked. And I used a condom every single time.” She shrugs. “I don’t know what to tell you. They aren’t one hundred percent effective. I’m sorry, Riley. I certainly didn’t plan on getting pregnant.” “Aren’t you on the pill?” “No, it made me fat.” I shake my head. I can’t fucking believe this. But I’m not stupid either. I go into my guest bathroom, grab a pregnancy test out of the cabinet, and then hand it to her. “Take this.” “Why do you have that?” “Honey, you’re not the first girl to tell me she’s pregnant.” I open it up and hand it to her. “Go pee on it, bring it out, and we’ll watch. See what happens.” She hesitates, just as they all do. “Um, I don’t know if it will work yet. I’m barely pregnant.” “So you didn’t do a test?” “Yes, I did a test, Riley. God, you’re being such an ass.” She’s right. I am. “I’m sorry. Please, for me, go take the test.” “I will, I’m just saying that they aren’t all as accurate as the one I took.” She lets out a dramatic sigh and goes into the bathroom, not bothering to shut the door. When she sees me watching her pee, she gives me a sexy smile. I turn around. Fuck. Of course, that’s what got me into this mess. Please, please, don’t let her be pregnant. I hear the toilet flush and turn around. “Here’s the stick, Riley. I’m going to sit down. Pregnancy is exhausting.” She flops down on my couch while I stare at the stick, willing the line not to change. But it does.

For Rachel Parker, covering the San Francisco Goliaths is the perfect opportunity to launch her career as a serious reporter.

Review 4 Stars
This was a really cute story. It was my first book with this author and series. I didn't feel as though I needed to read the previous books first, although it might have added to the experience. The characters are people you'd want to know, and the story line was fairly unique for being the "oops, I'm pregnant" type of plot. Personally, I am a huge, huge, baseball fan, so that made the book a little more fun for me and I appreciated the author giving the reader a little field time. However, I didn't feel as though is was so much that people who aren't baseball minded (can you believe they exist???) would get bored.

Rachel is an aspiring reporter, and Bryce is the star of the San Francisco Goliaths. She runs (or tries to, but isn't very good at it.), he chases, he catches her, you know, all fun and games until someone gets pregnant. 
Bryce swears he will be there for her and even proposes, trying to do the right thing. While some might think it's a bad reason for him to ask her to marry him, it's not just the baby that propels his decision. He really does want Rachel, and I loved that about him. 
Rachel is a fun and spunky character. She's dedicated to her job and determined not to mix work and her home life, or cross any (even unintentional) lines that would jeopardize her career. It's pretty easy to see why she isn't able to resist Bryce though.
Overall, I enjoyed it. It took me just a little time to really get into it, but once I did it kept a good pace. It didn't really stick with me, but I would recommend it. 
Kristina Mathews doesn't remember a time when she didn't have a book in her hand. Or in her head. But it wasn't until she turned forty that she confessed the reason the laundry never made it out of the dryer was because she was busy writing.

While she resigned from teaching with the arrival of her second son, she's remained an educator in some form. As a volunteer, parent club member or para educator, she finds the most satisfaction working with emergent and developing readers, helping foster confidence and a lifelong love of books.

Kristina lives in Northern California with her husband of more than twenty years, two sons and a black lab. A veteran road tripper, amateur renovator and sports fanatic. She hopes to one day travel all 3,073 miles of Highway 50 from Sacramento, CA to Ocean City, MD, replace her carpet with hardwood floors and serve as a “Ball Dudette” for the San Francisco Giants.

Excerpt: (Stranded with my Stepbrother)
“Listen, princess.” I lift her chin toward mine, meeting this gorgeous big blue eyes.  “I’m not sure if you noticed, but we’re stranded together in the middle of fucking nowhere, with only each other to count on.  You can fight me all you want, but there’s one thing you need to understand.  I’m going to protect you.  I’m going to take care of you.  And in case you haven’t noticed, I’m six-foot-four, and probably have a hundred pounds on you.  My body is going to produce a lot more heat than yours.  Now calm the fuck down, and let me get you warm.  Got it, sweetheart?”  Her fighting stops immediately.
She nods, coyly, blinking those baby blues at me, all of her anger disappearing.  “Got it.” Her voice is small, and I suddenly feel like a dick.
“Good. Glad we’re on the same page.” I tug her body closer so we’re pressed tightly together, and I hold her to my chest, wrapping her in my arms. A contented little sigh escapes her lips. The top of her head doesn’t even reach my chin. She packs a lot of sass for such a small thing.  I inhale, and breathe in the scent of her shampoo. The smell of vanilla and lavender fill my nose.  Damn, who knew that combination could be so perfect?  It’s intoxicating and I can feel my body slowly start to react to the smell and the images my mind starts to produce.  The way her slight curves mold to my body serves to warm me up pretty damn quick.


After several moments, we’re both warmer. “There.  Is that better?” I ask, releasing my hold on her before I sport an awkward boner. A few deep breaths are in order; otherwise things are going to get real weird, real fast.

From New York Times Bestselling Author, Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

Sharing a summer house with a hot-as-hell roommate should be a dream come true, right?

Not when it’s Justin…the only person I’d ever loved…who now hates me.

When my grandmother died and left me half of the house on Aquidneck Island, there was a catch: the other half would go to the boy she helped raise.

The same boy who turned into the teenager whose heart I broke years ago.

The same teenager who’s now a man with a hard body and a hardass personality to match.

I hadn’t seen him in years, and now we’re living together because neither one of us is willing to give up the house.

The worst part? He didn’t come alone.

I’d soon realize there’s a thin line between love and hate. I could see through that smug smile. Beneath it all…the boy is still there. So is our connection.

The problem is…now that I can’t have Justin, I’ve never wanted him more.

Author's note – RoomHate is a full-length standalone novel. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
