The Rookie & the Rockstar

By now you know I’m a huge fan of Jiffy Kate’s books and their latest is no exception! This is another home run!

Starting out in the minor leagues, Bo “Work Hard, Play Hard” Bennett has the opportunity to move up to the majors with the New Orleans Revelers. He’s focused on this one goal and he’s not going to let anything stand in his way…that is until he meets Lola Carradine. Charlotte (stage name Lola) is focused on her next album and doesn’t want a relationship to interfere…until she meets Bo. Starting as friends, their relationship morphs into more, but not without the paparazzi and others harassing them. There are other issues at play which Bo and Charlotte must navigate in order to decide if their relationship is worth it. Do they make it? How does the outside world affect Bo’s rookie year and Lola’s new album? You’ll have to read to find out!

If you’re a baseball fan, you’ll feel the excitement in the stadium when Bo is up to the plate and will become one of “Bo’s Babes” too.



Come Again

come again

I’ve been a fan of Jiffy Kate’s books for awhile. Their books easily transport the reader to the city the story takes place and it’s no different with “Come Again.”

Leaving a bad relationship and starting over in an unfamiliar city, Avery navigates the changes in her life and finds herself as the first woman to work in Shaw O’Sullivan’s bar. While Shaw does all he can to not think about Avery, she does the same…at first. Their relationship has plenty of hiccups, roadblocks, and misunderstandings. Read to see how they’re able to overcome what might seem impossible. As you’re reading it’s easy to picture the French Quarter, the Garden District and everything in between. A few characters from “Blue Bayou” and “Finding Focus” make appearances as well and fit right into the story.

Like their other books, this one leaves you wanting more!

Blue Bayou

I could not put this book down! So well written – can easily picture the city, the Blue Bayou, and smelling the food.

I could picture myself in New Orleans which made me miss the city and all it has to offer…including beignets. Like every couple Maverick and Carys have their ups and downs, but they are perfect for one another. It’s hard not to see yourself in some of the situations Carys finds herself. Bth she and Maverick are relatable. Also love the cameos from the Landry’s.

Watch & See

Like Mr. Chan’s soup, this book is hot! You will not be able to put it down.

Another wonderful read from Jiffy Kate! It takes you through a gambit of emotion from empathy, sadness, happiness, and everything in between.

Harper’s life hasn’t been easy and when she discovers Luke it doesn’t get any easier. You’ll feel yourself agreeing with some of her choices and arguing with her about others. As Luke finally opens up your heart goes out to him. The story of Harper and Luke, their personal ups and downs, and their road to one another isn’t all sunshine and roses which makes it that much more realistic.

Taming Trouble

It was great to go back into the Landry’s world and hear from Tucker. The dynamic between Tucker & Piper is hot and feisty!

Like their other books, Taming Trouble is a page turner. You can’t put it down because you want to find out what is going to happen next and get to know all of the characters…including the new ones.

This is a must read!

Table 10 – Parts 1-3

table 10

Part 1: I have been a Jiffy Kate fan for a long time and this story does not disappoint! When you first read about Nathan’s breakfast order to the beginning of his relationship with Kadi you’ll fall in love with these two as well. The relationship between Kadi and Nathan begins evolving in part one and makes you anticipate part two that much more!

Part 2: The much anticipated part two did not disappoint! The love Nathan has for Kadi is evident, he would do anything for her – if she’d just let him. Part two ends on a big cliffhanger that I’m looking forward to reading about in part three!

Part 3:  The spectacular conclusion to the story of Kadi and Nathan was worth the wait! Part two left us on a cliffhanger and part three revealed Nathan’s plans. The three parts have shown how both characters have grown (together and apart) and that their love story, like life, is a little messy but worth the fight.
