5 Drama-Filled Romances To Celebrate Mother's Day
The Peace Corps years ago adopted the slogan “The toughest job you’ll ever love”. Well, that could be the slogan for motherhood. A job that is ever-changing and exhausting with no days off or large salaries. Instead, mom's get the reward through the form of sticky kisses, sweet hugs, handmade macaroni necklaces, and seeing their children grow up happy and healthy. So, in honor of Mother's Day enjoy these crazy drama-filled family romances.
Broken (Breakers Hockey #1) by Elise Faber
He was forty years old. He was single. He had his dream job as GM of the Baltimore Breakers hockey franchise, and he was happy.
Lie. Because the woman he was in love with was married.
To a perfectly nice man who loved her and cared for her and treated her like the queen she was.
But then Lexi showed up at his house, tears in her eyes, Caleb out of the picture, and he finally had a shot.
A real shot. At love.
The trouble was that Luc had spent almost the entirety of his adult life running from love. He didn’t do relationships, not any longer.
But . . . Lexi was hurt, absolutely devastated, and she needed care and gentleness and deserved all of the romance in the world.
So he needed to man up and find a way to convince her to give him that shot.
My Kind of Perfect (Trillium Bay #3) by Tracy Brogan
From Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author Tracy Brogan comes a sweet, funny Trillium Bay romance about moving on, creating your best self, and discovering the true meaning of love.
After her scandalous May-December romance comes to an end, baby of the family Lilly Callaghan returns home to Trillium Bay braced for the torrent of “I told you sos” from her sisters and the rest of the tiny island community. Floundering both personally and professionally, she’s at an emotional crossroads but determined to figure out her next best steps.
When a surprise job offer from her house-flipping sister reacquaints Lilly with handsome, free-spirited Wenniway Island transplant Matt Eastman, Lilly wonders if she’s ready for a new romance. Then she meets Hollywood heartthrob Jayden Pierce, who is filming a movie on the island, and she’s certain of it—but with whom? She’s caught the attention of both men, and both men have caught hers. So what’s a girl to do?
Earnest Matt shares her love of the close-knit island community, while surprisingly down-to-earth Jayden encourages her to live life outside her comfort zone. As the flirtatious triangle sets the town talking, Lilly must choose: Does she want to plant forever roots in Trillium Bay with Matt? Or follow a man who makes love stories for a living? Two very different men. Two very different futures. But deep down, Lilly knows that only one holds the promise of her kind of perfect.
Leveling The Field (KTS #3) by Elise Faber
I’d fallen for him the first time he smiled at me.
My heart was his the moment he’d complimented me on my explosives skills.
As members of KTS, a secret military group who was tasked with saving the world from the biggest and baddest of the criminal underworld, we went the places other people couldn’t, put our lives on the line when others wouldn’t.
But being a KTS agent was hell on a woman’s love life, especially when they looked like me—not petite and slender or wonderfully curved. For women like me, broad-shouldered, normal-looking, love seemed to always pass us by.
Knowing that, I put my unrequited crush of Leo aside, switched teams, and got on with my life, content in my part in taking out the bad guys.
But then Leo came back. Then he saw me. And I wondered if perhaps love for a “woman like me” might not be a fantasy after all.
Bossy Grump by Nicole Snow
Wall Street Journal bestselling author Nicole Snow returns with a screaming funny romance where two office enemies fake love until they're all out of make-believe.
You know that awkward moment when your lava-hot boss says “marry me?”
Not for love. Not for real. Not without a mammoth payoff.
Of course, this fortune comes with a ginormous snag—Ward Brandt.
Call me bananas.
I must be short of a full bushel rejecting Chicago's finest billionaire.
Who knew he was my boss when he crashed my worst date ever?
Oh, but he found out.
He swore I wasn't fit for Brandt Ideas, chewed me up, and spat me back out.
I vowed I'd prove him wrong—and sabotage a metric ton of his coffee.
Then tragedy strikes, upending his limitless ego.
Guess who needs an image makeover to shore up the family business.
Big fat hell no.
King Snarlypants has a peanut-sized heart and a chip on his shoulder bigger than a redwood.
Find another sucker, Ward-hole.
Even if I agreed, my shields are up.
No magnetic kisses. Zero butterflies. Nix the blushing when everyone gushes over what a “perfect couple” we'd be.
Then again...it's just ninety days and mama needs a windfall.
What's one little white wedding lie with a bossy grump built like a god?
Falling Into Love with You (The Hate-Love Duet Book 2) by Lauren Rowe
I’m obsessed with Laila Fitzgerald. There, I finally admitted it. I’ve tried not to want her. I tried to step aside when my best friend said he wanted her. But it’s proved impossible. She’s too gorgeous and talented, too charismatic and badass, for me not to want her for myself.
Unfortunately, though, karma’s a bitch. In trying to do the right thing by my best friend, I’ve done the wrong thing by myself. I’ve pushed her away every chance I’ve had. Dug way too deep a hole to crawl out of . . . And now, Laila downright hates my guts. And rightly so.
But since we’re stuck together, yet again—and, this time, even more closely—I’ve decided nothing will stop me from getting what I want. This time, I’m going to figure out a way to coax Laila into falling out of hate with me . . .
