Kiss My Ash by Leddy Harper

Kiss My Ash by [Harper, Leddy]3.5 Stars

Kiss My Ash by Leddy Harper is a taboo/age gap romance featuring a mother in her 30’s and the 17 year old boy next door. Krista is a single mom that has put her life on hold for the past decade in order to put her everything into providing the best life for her 16 year old daughter. She finally purchases her first home and when she meets her new neighbor it isn’t anything like she expected.

Ash is hard to believe as a 17 year old. He reads much older, which is obviously part of the plot (Krista believes he is older than 17 at the beginning of their relationship). I enjoyed their relationship, but would have liked it better in a different context. All of that being said, this book wasn’t an easy one to put down. I enjoyed it and finished it within a couple of days. The epilogue was golden and really helped cement the story.

I received an advance reader copy of this book that I have chosen to review.

Ash Jenkins was the typical boy next door. Wait, who am I
kidding? There was nothing typical about that boy.
He was tall, ripped, and had the voice of a man twice his
age. Intelligent, sexy as sin, and barely legal.
Sent to live with his dad after getting in some trouble
with the law, he was definitely someone I needed to stay away from.
But he had his sights set on me, and he didn’t try to
hide it.
Did it still make me a cougar if I was the prey?

The Roommate ‘dis’Agreement by Leddy Harper

 4.5 Stars

I recently had my first experience reading Leddy Harper as 1/2 of the writing duo Stella (Leddy Harper & Stephie Walls). Their book, Third Base, was enjoyable and made me curious about these two authors. They both have separate books coming out this month in addition to their collaboration so it’s a great time to try them all out.

The Roommate ‘dis’Agreement was my favorite book of the three. I read it in one sitting and thoroughly enjoyed the relationship between Cash & Jade (& Aria!!!). The dynamics were good and the way Cash cared for Aria was everything. I don’t seek them out, but I always seem to love a good single mother story and this one is definitely on the list. One little gem from the book is that the mother & son that Jade & Aria meet on the beach are characters in Stephie Walls new book Unexpected Arrivals. That was completely unexpected and made me happy. All in all, I will definitely be on the lookout for more books by Leddy Harper.

Third Base by Stella

3.5 Stars

This is a good friends-to-lovers romance. The blurb gives you a good idea what the book is about and the title is perfect.

I enjoyed Third Base and this was my first experience reading a book by the author duo that makes up Stella (Leddy Harper & Stephie Walls). I’ll definitely pick up more books from them in the future. My only problem with it is Ellie & Coby spent way too much time not together. It made the book seem slow, because you were constantly waiting for them to finally get together. I absolutely loved Gage (my favorite character). I hope that the next story we get out of Stella is the story of his romance with Missy.

Title: Third Base
Author: Stella
Genre: Sports Romance/Friends-to-lovers
Release Date: November 2, 2017

First base: kissing.

Second base: above the waist.

Third base: below the waist.

Home run: no explanation needed.Every baseball player knows to keep their eye on the ball and swing for the
fences. Each base counts, but a home run is the goal. No one wants to strike
out. This is true both on and off the field.

Ellie Teller had been my best friend since we were born, and we had a plan—get
out of the tiny Alabama town we’d grown up in and go to college…together. But
even life’s best-laid plans could throw a powerful curveball. Rather than
attend classes, I was now the starting pitcher for a Major League team.

While my game-day stats were impressive, my record with women was less
desirable. I was the professional baseball player who hadn’t been able to make
it past third base since the one and only night I’d played hardball with my
best friend.

But when the bottom of the ninth came to a close on my career, I had to decide
if our friendship was worth more than a few extra innings.
