Six Month Rule Cover


Synopsis: She created the game, but the rules are about to change. Taurus: Hold fast to your single-minded nature today—no matter how long her legs or how lush her red lips. Gemini: You were a shining star last night, but reality can be a real—well, you get the picture. Just remember: Tall, dark, and British equals no corner office for you.
Will Evans never wanted a reason to stay.
Holly Chandler wants nothing more than for him to go.
But neither one is prepared for what can happen in six months. Because it doesn’t matter what you want when what you need walks out the door.
Holly’s been busting her butt to make partner at Trousseau and there’s no way she’s going to let some stuck-up British arsehole get in her way—no matter how drop-dead gorgeous he is. But that doesn’t mean she can’t have a little fun in the process. She has a six-month rule: date just long enough for the honeymoon phase to wear off, then walk away before anyone gets hurt. If they both know the rules up front, walking away will be a piece of cake. Or maybe not…
*SIX MONTH RULE is a stand alone book in a connected series.

AJ Pine’s Six Month Rule was one of those books that just made my heart sing as I flipped each page falling more and more in love with Holly and her man Billy- Will.  With every book I read of Pine’s I’m wowed further and further into her craft by absorbing her story’s words deeply into my imagination and having them come to life in my mind.  With Six Month Rule I was smitten by Holly and Will’s romance.  Two people hell bent on their life’s goals whose attraction, connection and eventually love couldn’t separate no matter the many miles, obstacles and time between them.  Pine really outdid herself creating two characters so undeniably right for each other in this Happily Ever After story.

Now I will admit, normally I am so not a fan of different accents in books.  I find it hard to connect and follow along with jargon and slang that isn’t from here.  I know.  It’s terrible, I miss out on a ton of amazing books for that very reason.  But, I took a chance on Pine and boy did she do it so right.  I could instantly picture Will in my head ( He might have been Klaus Mikaelson from The Originals- but hey.. Joseph Morgan is super HOT).  Her dialect was spot on for Will.  He was easy to read, understand and follow along with.  His utterly politeness, polished banter is what made me completely swoon for him much like Holly did.  Their banter and exchange is what I loved most about Pine’s story.  She captured them well and stayed true to the origins and story line of this series.

Pine is one of those authors that just has it.  With each book she writes, I fangirl a little harder in my reading nook.  She is an author that must be read and her stories must be fallen in love with.  I highly urge you to pick up the Kingston Ale House Series.  Fall in love with Brynn and Jamie first, then keep riding the love train to Holly and Will.  I can’t wait to see what is next in this series and how Pine will capture my imagination and heart again.

The One That Got Away Cover


Synopsis: 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
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.
