Blame it on the Champagne (Blame it on the Alcohol #1) by Fiona Cole

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Verana (Vera) has just graduated college and is hoping that her father will allow her to work for the family shipping business – at least until she is forced to marry. However, her father is having none of it and confesses that he has already made a match for her. The new CFO Camden Conti who is almost twice her age and someone who is looking for a good wife who stays at home, produces babies and helps with charity events.

Refusing to accept her role in life she applies for a job at a smaller shipping company using her grandmother’s surname to avoid her father getting her blacklisted. As she leaves the interview she is bumped into the man (Nicholas/Nico) who she spied at the restaurant the other night. They stand and flirt with each other until he realises that she has just been for an interview at his company and thinks that she is just attempting to get her foot in the door with him. Thankfully his assistant persuades him to give her the job, allow Nico keeps giving her all the menial tasks to complete.

Whilst attending a masked charity event Vera’s friend convinces her to sign up for a blind date of sorts before she is forced to marry Camden. Without realising it Vera and Nico are paired together and enjoy a hot and steamy fling on the balcony. It all goes wrong when they get back to work and Nico realises that it was Vera at the event.

A further misunderstanding happens and she is sure that she’s going to be fired. However, a visit from Camden telling her exactly what their marriage will be like and a slap from her father has her realising that she has no choice in her life. Visiting the office late at night after two bottles of champagne she is found by Nico. Informing him that she quits, that she is engaged in an arranged marriage and her true surname. He is stunned by it all and offers to marry her.

Meeting for dinner to explain everything Nico tells her that they will both benefit from the arrangement, however, doesn’t confess the true motive on his side. He wants to bring her father’s company down as revenge for what he did to his grandfather’s company years ago. Can they make this arrangement work between them? Is it possible to learn to lose each other? What happens when Vera learns the truth about Nico’s business plan?

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Attending one of her best friend’s weddings Nova is cutting loose from her influencer woes and has some tequila before busting some moves on the dance floor. When her other best friend joins an Instagram live with rock star Parker Callahan, something Nova puts an end to as soon as she realises what’s happening. It’s been five years since Nova heard from her then stepbrother, although their feelings were far from just a sibling relationship.

While success with his band has been amazing Parker still finds himself thinking about Nova. The mistakes from the past still haunting him, but now that he has found her again he isn’t ready to let her slip through his fingers again. Although a PR stunt adds a bump to their fragile relationship, however, an opportunity to add a songwriter to their tour sees his management unknowingly hire Nova.

Despite the chemistry that has always sparked between the two of them, there are past hurts that they need to overcome in order for them to have any chance at a future. Nova is inclined to run from situations, whilst Parker allows others to tell him what would fit the brands PR narrative. Can they get on the same page, at the same time?
