She’s holding out for a happy ever after.


I know where to find my happily ever after—between the pages of a romance novel. It’s why I sell books, why I blog about them, and why I’ll never get disappointed by love.So what if my brother’s best friend from high school is now a bestselling author? Or that he just blew back into town on a Harley, filling out a pair of jeans like he never did before? Or that he’s agreed to do a signing at my bookstore on such short notice? Because despite all his adoring female fans, I kind of hated his book.


The last time I saw Annie Denning, she was a senior in high school, three years older than me and way out of my league. Now I’m her last-minute date to a wedding, and what started as a night of pure fun has turned into something more real than either of us anticipated.Annie is my muse. When I’m with her, my writer’s block fades away, and the words finally flow. The only problem? She wants the fairy tale—her very own happily ever after—and anyone who’s read my book knows the truth. I just don’t believe they exist.


My Review

I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review. 

This book is so much fun! Annie is a bookstore owner who loves romance novels and Wes is a romance novelist who doesn't believe in happily ever after. WHAAAAAAAAT? How the heck would that work? And it is the best friend's sister trope so you know that will be good!

Wes always had a little crush on Annie. She was the older, pretty sister of his best friend, but she never even noticed him. But when he comes back to town, she definitely notices. Wes is all grown up, successful and looking good. He makes an appearance at her bookstore to help boost profits and then somehow ends up being her date to a wedding. 

Neither of them are looking for a relationship so they decide that a friends with benefits relationship will work best. Of course they find that they genuinely like each other and they do become pretty good friends. Their relationship was both fun and equally hot. They had to keep it a secret so Annie's brother wouldn't find out and that just added to the hotness of it. And once he and Annie get together, the writer's block that Wes has been dealing with goes away. He finds his muse in her. 

Like I mentioned earlier, this book is so much fun. The story brings up topics that readers and authors talk about quite often it was cool to see them written into the story. And also Annie is a blogger so it was fun to watch her blog and interact with her readers. 


Six Month Rule New Cover

She created the game, but the rules are about to change.

The second I met Will Evans in his three-piece suit with that hot as hell British accent, I wanted him.

That is...until he insulted my shoes and stole my corner office.

Now I have to work side-by-side with the surly British arsehole who just set my career back six months.

It's fine. That accent won't get to me, no matter how sexy it sounds when he asks permission to do things professionals shouldn't do. On the couch. In the corner office I still wish was mine.

Maybe we can't keep our hands off each other, but I'm sure as hell not falling for a guy who lives an ocean away. Because in six months, he's leaving for good.

I don't do broken hearts, but you know what they say...

There's a first time for everything.

Each book in the Kingston Ale House series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.




How far will one man go for the woman he's loved since high school?

Jamie Kingston has been Brynn Chandler's best friend since middle school. Only once was their friendship tested—when Brynn gave Jamie a single kiss. Since then, they've had an unspoken agreement never to cross that line again, and she’s ready to let go of the past and move on.

But Jamie has loved Brynn for as long as he can remember, and now that he's ready to tell her, she has her sights set on someone else. Knowing this is his last chance, he asks Brynn to go on a two-week road trip. But their time alone brings old hurts to the surface, and Brynn has to decide if the one that got away lies at the end of the journey or if he's been by her side all along.




AJ Pine writes stories to break readers’ hearts, but don’t worry—she’ll mend them with a happily ever after. As an English teacher and a librarian, AJ has always surrounded herself with books. All her favorites have one big commonality–romance. Naturally, her books have the same. When she’s not writing, she’s of course reading. Then there’s online shopping (everything from groceries to shoes) and, of course, a tiny bit of TV where she nourishes her undying love of vampires and superheroes. And in the midst of all of this, you’ll also find her hanging with her family in the Chicago burbs.
