The Shaughnessy Brothers are back
He lives by a schedule Aubrey Burke is on the run from an about-to-be-disastrous mistake when resort owner Hugh Shaughnessy catches her climbing through his office window.

Love Walks In by Samantha Chase
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Every so often a story comes along that makes a reader stop and take notice. It's never one specific aspect for me but the combined product that has a profound affect. Love Walks In by Samantha Chase is one of those reads. Thank you Samantha Chase for writing such a thought provoking story. Sourcebooks for publishing it and NetGalley for approving my request.
This story was a hard read for me. Beautifully written with characters that any reader can picture and love. What broke me into was the heartbreaking circumstances that left such a lasting footprint on the lives of such young vital people. Aubrey lost her dream, her family and the way she felt about herself in one instant. Hugh lost his center and closed his heart. There was a positive with Aubrey and Hugh's story they learned not to take life for granted. That is a lesson we all need to remember. A powerful story...but then again from Samantha Chase, I'd expect nothing less.

FRIDAY NIGHT BRIDES BY SAMANTHA CHASE
Release Date: May 3, 2016
Five hundred bridal fashion shows.
They’ve been friends since they were five, and modeling for Enchanted Bridal has been as much of a part of their lives as their friendship has. And this season has them seeing more than new wedding trends.
Hailey’s family owns Enchanted Bridal and she knows there’s a possibility that someday it will be hers. She’s not sure that’s the path she wants to take, but she does know that she’s been hopelessly crushing on the perfect man and bridal show model Logan Baxter III. While failing to gain Logan’s attention, she can’t seem to get rid of the less-than-perfect man – and model – Jackson Carr. He’s big and bold and tattooed – pretty much everything Hailey despises. And yet…there’s something about him that has Hailey questioning her definition of perfect.
Becca’s got a knack for dating the wrong kind of guys. When her current boyfriend publicly dumps and humiliates her, she’s devastated. Wanting to run and hide, she’s mortified that the stranger who had witnessed the entire scene is now part of the Enchanted Bridal family. But when Max Abrams offers her comfort and tells her that he thinks she’s beautiful, she has to wonder if maybe getting dumped by Mr. Wrong has finally led her to her very own Mr. Right.
Angie’s loud and feisty and completely fearless. That is until she gets dumped by the one guy she really had feeling for. It opens her up to insecurities she didn’t know she had and she’s not sure what to do about it. But when Sean Patterson comes back into her life in a big way, she’s not sure she’s ready to forgive and forget quite so easily. His persistence and her stubbornness make for an exciting chase, however, but at the end of the season, it’s ultimately up to her if she’s ready to quit running.
Ella’s been planning her perfect wedding to Dylan Graham since she was twelve. Together for thirteen years, Ella’s beginning to wonder if that number really is bad luck. She can’t focus on all that’s right in her life because all she can think about is what she may be missing. Their parents have taken over their wedding, her friends all seem to be in crisis and Dylan’s just not listening to her fears. Not one to ever make waves, she suddenly finds that that’s exactly what she’s doing and turning everyone’s life upside down in the process. The life that she once considered boring is now the one she longs for, but it may be too late.
Four possibilities for happily ever after.
REVIEW: FRIDAY NIGHT BRIDES BY SAMANTHA CHASE
Friday Night Brides by Samantha Chase
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I love how Samantha Chase mixes it up. She can do drama and heartache like nobody else but she also has a side that is funny and sassy. That side is put on full display with Friday Night Brides. Angie, Ella, Becca and Hailey are a close group. They have shared so much of their lives that it's only natural. When life, love and maturity start to change the dynamic of their friendships is when the chaos begins. I received an ARC of Friday Night Brides in exchange for an honest review. Getting to see a different side of Ms. Chase' personality was a real treat. I also had a blast getting to know these women. The one thing that never changes for me when reading a Samantha Chase novel is the sincerity that she puts in every single one.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
New York Times and USA Today Bestseller/contemporary romance writer Samantha Chase released her debut novel, Jordan's Return, in November 2011. Although she waited until she was in her 40's to publish for the first time, writing has been a lifelong passion. Her motivation to take that step was her students: teaching creative writing to elementary age students all the way up through high school and encouraging those students to follow their writing dreams gave Samantha the confidence to take that step as well.
When she's not working on a new story, she spends her time reading contemporary romances, playing way too many games of Scrabble or Solitaire on Facebook and spending time with her husband of 25 years and their two sons in North Carolina.
