Title: Twisted Love (Modern Romance #3)
Author: Piper Lawson
Genre: Contemporary Romance
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love Piper Lawson, and this book is classic Piper Lawson.

Daisy and Ben are besties. They met in college, and they have had one another’s backs since way back in the day. Their friendship is like the US Postal creed sorta, neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these two Fortnite players on a Friday night. But what these two don’t know and their friends suspect–is about to come to light when they play boyfriend and girlfriend for a month. These two want one another.

I really loved this one. Twisted Love was pretty typical, but the characters were great. The corporate world-building was fascinating. I especially loved how Piper Lawson showed that it was a small elite world of movers and shakers. And Ben’s mom is a hoot–a tragic hoot but a hoot all the same.

I highly recommend this for anyone how enjoys Lauren Blakely.

Title: Stand-In Saturday (Love For Days #2)

Genre: Romantic Comedy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 Kirsty Moseley has another laugh-fest with Stand-in Saturday, the sequel to Man Crush Monday. Theo Stone has finagled a date for Jared and Amy’s wedding, and in Moseley-fashion, you will be giggling your way throughout chapters.

Insanity strikes when a chance encounter with a super sexy man in an elevator has her agreeing to a quid-pro-quo sitch where she accompanies him to a wedding, and he goes to her family party, fake dates, stand-ins for the real thing. In no time does the chemistry begin to get in the way.
