Reviews of Books by Kelsie Rae

Rhett (Signature Sweethearts) by Kelsie Rae is a story that will make you laugh, swoon, curse, and sigh, even while it touches your heart!

Synopsis:

***Can be read as a stand alone***

 

Indie

I’ve never believed in fairy tales. Sure, I was raised with Disney movies and princess stories, but I wasn’t stupid enough to fall for them. The can’t-eat, can’t-sleep kind of love doesn’t exist. And that’s a fact.

My relationship is realistic. Convenient. Solid. I thought I was happy.

And then I met him.

My new neighbor.

The guy who’s starting to make me question everything. Making me wonder if maybe, just maybe, I could be wrong.

 

Rhett

I've never been afraid to go after what I want. After all, my job is solely based on seeing opportunities and capitalizing on them.

And then I met my new neighbor.

Our chemistry is off the charts, our banter is on point, and her body is out of this world.

So why does she turn to ice as soon as I mention a date? Even when her eyes linger longer than necessary?

She's hiding something.

And I'm going to find out what it is.

 

**This is not a cheating book and has a HEA**

Ceej’s Review:

Rhett is a story of how love, in its all-encompassing joy and power, takes over, regardless of plans or circumstances.  Kelsie Rae shows us, in some of the sweetest ways, gives us a story that will make you laugh, swoon, curse, and sigh.

Indie made me think about how often we settle for what’s comfortable.  She made me think about how much more amazing it is to go for what we want.

Rhett made me smile with his battle with his beliefs and his needs.  His sweetness surprised me a little, considering what I knew of him prior to this book, and I enjoyed it.

Kelsie, you remind me that yes, sweetness is something we need in our lives.

Tracey’s Review:

Kelsie has this sweet and endearing way of telling a story and it touches your heart.

Rhett and Indie have amazing chemistry and make me smile at how likable they are. There is just one problem....Tony. He is like the long lost puppy that follows you home and never leaves because he’s comfortable. This story teaches you about meeting the love of your life when and where you least expect it. It also shows you families may have the best intentions but they might not be best for you.

This book will also make you hungry if you like baked sweet treats and I am still drooling over the cronuts. Kelsie this book is a must read that makes me smile, laugh, groan and wish I had a next door neighbor like Rhett. This story sizzles with amazing chemistry, humor, love, passion and faith and I couldn’t put it down.

Jude (Signature Sweethearts) by Kelsie Rae is a story that makes me think of wish fulfillment in its hottest form, even with the lies that came with it!

Synopsis:

***Can be read as a stand alone****

When Jude is offered the position of assistant coach to an online gaming championship, he'd be a fool to turn it down. But when his celebrity crush ends up being on the team, he decides to teach her a lot more than a few gaming tricks.

Quin doesn't date. Being the breadwinner since she was sixteen will do that to a girl. So when the sexy new British coach shows up, she refuses to be distracted. She has goals, and she will achieve them. No matter the cost.

But is she willing to lose the only thing that matters to her in order to do so?

Ceej’s Review:

Jude is a sweet romance that gave me an intriguing view into the gaming world.  Figures that Kelsie Rae would be the one to show me the sweet and fun side to it (I’m not a gamer so I don’t think it’s fun lol).

Jude…is the prime example of how wrong a person can be when judging people by their looks, or even by their reputations.  He blows the stereotypical vision of a gamer to pieces.  How many people think gamers stereotypically unattractive, unemployed, lazy, and socially awkward nerds?  Jude is seriously hot, wildly intelligent, and wickedly talented.  He’s also this sweet guy who knows just how to bring a shy and gorgeous girl like Quin out of her shell.

Quin…is a gamer’s fantasy, so she matches perfectly with Jude.  As previously stated, she’s shy and gorgeous, but she’s also skilled and talented, with a huge and beautiful heart.  She’s also adorable.  I enjoyed watching her bloom.

While this is not my typical kind of read, Kelsie Rae, you remind this dark reader that there is utter beauty in sweetness.  I cannot wait to see what else you share with us!

Tracey’s Review:

This is a sweet and endearing story that is uniquely different than what you would expect, but in a surprisingly good way. Jude is a sexy Brit with the patience of a saint when he sees what he wants and he wants Q. Quincy is beautiful and smart and must be pushed out of her comfort zone. Jude is just the man to make that happen.

This story teaches you about living life to the fullest and not taking anyone you love for granted. Kelsie, thank you for reminding me about how quickly life passes by and the importance of taking chances. This story is a leap of faith on finding love in the most unexpected place.

Breezy by Kelsie Rae is a laugh out loud, sweet, sexy story that brings the storm!

Synopsis:

Bree Jensen is a force to be reckoned with. She’s feisty, energetic, and isn’t afraid to speak her mind. She’s also a clumsy mess in need of a job.

When Derrick meets Bree, she isn’t just a breath of fresh air, she’s a freaking hurricane. However, even the gorgeous new girl in HR can’t make him break his one rule: No dating employees. Ever.

The only problem? Bree’s never been very good at following orders, and Derrick’s self-imposed no-fraternization policy is like waving a red flag in front of a very determined bull.

Will her unconventional tactics finally cause Derrick to toss his precious rulebook in the trash or will it cause an even larger rift between the two?

Ceej’s Review:

Breezy is such a sweet, hilarious, and sexy story that I couldn’t help but fall in love!!  From the very first paragraph, Kelsie Rae had me hooked.  I met Breezy in another book and I just had to know her story.

Breezy…her second nickname fit her so incredibly well!  To be honest, people like her normally annoy me.  However, Breezy made is someone that I want to hang out with.  She’s hilarious, packed with energy, sweet, beautiful, and daring.  Her antics were so funny I lost count of how many times I busted out a belly laugh in response!

Derrick…sigh…he made me want to join Breezy’s and Jude’s tactics.  I was constantly smirking at him and wondered when he’d give in!  I understand his worry, but he needed to pull that stick out of his butt!  Oh man, and there was that one moment that he broke my heart.

Breezy is a story full of grins, smirks, chuckles, belly laughs, sighs, a little bit of angst, and enough heat to make the wait worth it.  Thank you Kelsie Rae, Breezy just jumped ahead of hundreds of novels on my reread list!  I absolutely adore it!

Tracey’s Review:

I read this book in one sitting it was so good! This is my first book by Kelsie and she now has a fan for life. Bree and Derrick are my favorite kind of couple because when the chemistry is off the charts you know the love is going to be fantastic. He is sexy and off limits per his rules and she is a spitfire that won’t take no for an answer. I adore the banter in this book and the supporting characters help these two shine even more. I laughed out loud, I yelled at them, and I couldn’t wait for them to jump each other’s bones. This is a sweet and sexy story that gives a whole new meaning to the word hurricane.

It's a... DEBUT NOVEL!

 

Liv by Kelsie Rae

 

 

 

 

 

 

BLURB:

Liv had her life all figured out until it was shattered by the loss of her husband. He left her a piece of him she hadn’t planned on. How can she pick up the pieces when she doesn’t know how?

Liv:
I never imagined my life would end up this way. I thought I had everything figured out until I got the call my husband was killed in a car accident and that my period was late.

Dead Husband?: Check
Positive Pregnancy Test?: Check
Screwed Beyond Belief?: Double Check

Luke:
I was never supposed to see her again. That was the deal. Leave her and my ex-best friend behind to finally mend my broken heart and move on with life. And it was going smoothly, too. That is, until said ex-best friend dies and his wife, Liv, lets a secret slip at his funeral that I can’t possibly ignore.

Out of my freaking mind?: Check
Extremely Angry Girlfriend who will kill me when she finds out I have a new roommate?: Check
About to get my heart ripped in two?: Double Check

Ceej’s Review:

Liv is a sweet romance that brings some drama, some angst, laughter, joy, and sweet, sweet, love.  This novel reminds us that “what ifs” don’t do anything but hurt us, and that things happen for a reason, whether it is to teach us lessons or to forge ahead toward what we want and never hold back.

Liv…I felt so bad for her.  Burying her husband so soon AND discovering that she’s pregnant?  My heart ached for her.  Grief and the situation she found herself in seemed impossible to endure.  I gave her serious props for never giving up.

Luke…<sigh> there were so many times I wanted to shake him.  Now don’t get me wrong, I really liked him.  He earned a place in my heart when he offered and followed through on taking care of Liv.  But considering how long he held out on letting his feelings known?  Ugh.  I admit that it made me want to keep reading even more, just to see what happened when he finally did.

Liv is the perfect novel to read after a serious book hangover or just whenever.  The sweetness overtakes you and makes you appreciate how amazing the different facets of love are.  I will definitely have this one on my re-read list.  Congrats on your debut novel, Kelsie Rae!  I loved it!
