How to Kiss Your Best Friend (How to Kiss a Hawthorne Brother Book 1)

He’s a hot high school chemistry teacher living in a small town. She’s a globetrotting journalist running from her past. They used to be best friends. Then one kiss changes everything.

Kate Fletcher is my kryptonite.
She’s also my best friend. Former best friend?
I’m not sure what you call it when we grew up attached at the hip and then she left Silver Creek (and me) to travel the world.
The important thing is: Kate is back. (Temporarily.)
And I’m still in love with her. (Permanently.)

But something is different now. The attraction doesn’t seem one-sided. I don’t think I’m imagining the heat in Kate’s eyes or the chemistry crackling between us.
But will that be enough to keep Kate here, when, for as long as I can remember, all she’s wanted to do is leave?

I’m determined to give her a reason to stay. Family. Connection. Roots. And me. I’ll have to start with sparks and fire, but if I take this step, there’s no turning back to simple friendship. And if she doesn’t feel the same way, I might lose her again—this time for good.

Totally Booked UK review: Brody Hawthorne first met Kate when they were nine years old as she sat next to him on the school bus. Sparking a lifelong friendship between them, although he has been in love with her for possibly just as long as their friendship. They haven’t spoken in four years after Kate stopped responding to texts, so receiving one out of the blue as he prepares to head off on a hike with one of his brothers has put him into a spin, especially as she is returning home for the summer.

Travel writer Kate was in a hurry to leave Silver Creek behind and hot fitted out of there as soon as she could after high school. She has travelled the world and stayed with her father in Paris, only making the return journey home a few times over the years. A difficult relationship with her mom led to her not coming back for her Grandma’s funeral four years ago but now she needs to sort out the old how. Which also means seeing her best friend Brody and apologising for disappearing from him.

An off-the-cuff comment from her cousin about Brody and their relationship has Kate thinking about him in a different light, especially when she sees how buff he has become in her absence as she surprises him on the hiking trail he is on with his brother. Friendship is revived and time spent together only makes Brody hope for more but Kate is a flight risk and when feelings are finally revealed will she stay or go?

How to Kiss Your Grumpy Boss (How to Kiss a Hawthorne Brother Book 2)

Perry Hawthorne is my boss. Only my boss. And I do NOT have a crush.

When one of THE Hawthorne brothers—known by their chiselled jawlines and their family-run farm and event centre—hires me to be his virtual assistant, I do everything I can to keep him firmly in the work zone.

His grumpy demeanor helps.
His smoking hot profile picture does not.
But even if I do have a crush (a very tiny one), I can’t catch real feelings for a million different reasons.
Besides the whole business part of our relationship, I’m a single mom. I have to think about what’s best for my son, Jack. And my grumpy, divorced, humorless boss isn’t exactly giving me “ready to be a stepdad” vibes.

When Perry upgrades me from virtual to in-person assistant, I wonder if I’ve gotten him all wrong. He’s actually pretty great with Jack. And with me? Let’s just say the chemistry crackling between us might vaporise all my reasons for keeping my distance.
Trouble is, after his messy divorce, I’m not sure Perry’s ready to bet on a new relationship. But it isn’t just my heart that’s on the line. It’s Jack’s, too. And after everything we went through before my husband died, I’m not sure that’s a gamble I’m ready to take, no matter how desperate Jack is for a daddy.

Totally Booked UK review: Perry Hawthorne has been back helping to run his family farm for the past four years. With his younger sister off on maternity leave, the majority of everyday management now falls on his shoulders. His brother, Brody, has been sent over to convince him that he needs to hire an assistant, which might be a good idea considering he has just wrestled a pig into a ditch.

Lila Templeton moved back to her hometown a few years ago with her son, Jack. Her navy pilot husband died in a training exercise and she wanted to be close to her grandparents who raised her as a child. She holds conflicting emotions over her husband’s death as everything had not been rosy at home and she was preparing to file for divorce. With Jack in Kindergarten, she works from home as a virtual assistant with two clients but is offered the opportunity to work exclusively for one client who will pay her for the same hours every day.

Although Lila is nervous about working for the Hawthornes, she attempts to liven up the short, to-the-point communications she exchanges with Perry. Throwing in apple puns but getting nothing in return until he calls her to ask for her help. Arriving to help him, Perry was not expecting the young, curvy woman who pulled up, wondering how this could possibly be his VA. Part of him falling instantly in love with her, including her adorable son Jack. Getting her to work from the farm rather than remotely doesn’t quite go to plan when they disagree about the layout of the festival and he forgets to give her a lunch break.

Attempting to navigate working together and exploring their feelings for each other isn’t easy. Fake dating in order to get Perry’s ex-wife off his back, whilst Lila introduces him to the world of parenting which is anything but perfect. Lila comes as part of a package deal, is Perry ready to embrace everything that she comes with or is he better to walk away?

How to Kiss Your Enemy (How to Kiss a Hawthorne Brother Book 3)

How is it possible for the chemistry between two chefs to be hotter than a ghost pepper yet colder than liquid nitrogen?

When THE Tatum Elliott shows up to run the catering kitchen at my family’s farm and event centre, I don’t trust her anymore than I did back in culinary school.
But like it or not, she’s here. On my territory. My turf. In the kitchen that shares a building with my farm-to-table restaurant.
And she can’t seem to keep her hands off my parmesan.

Our old rivalry flares to life faster than a flambé, but there’s something else flaming between us too. And it’s heating up quicker than anything we’re making in the kitchen.
But I can’t forget that Tatum is the daughter of Christopher Elliott—America’s most famous chef. She belongs in a big city, in a restaurant with her name on it. Not running the catering arm of Stonebrook Farm.
Whatever her reasons for being here now, I can’t see her permanently walking away from the fame and fortune her father can offer her, no matter how well she fits in on the farm—how well she fits with me.

She’ll leave eventually—I’m sure of it. I just have to make sure that when she does, she doesn’t take my heart with her.

How to Kiss a Movie Star: How to Kiss a Hawthorne Brother Book 4 by Jenny Proctor

He’s Hollywood’s biggest star. She wouldn’t know him from the pizza delivery guy.
I’m a wildlife biologist in a tiny mountain town, not some kind of law-breaking celebrity stalker. At least not on purpose.
It was an accident when I wandered onto the property of one of Hollywood’s hottest movie stars. Five minutes ago, I’d never even heard of Flint Hawthorne. I definitely didn’t know he lives in Silver Creek.
When I’m detained for trespassing, the last thing I expect is to trade my handcuffs for a designer gown. All I wanted was permission to conduct my research on a remote corner of his estate.

Now I’m walking the red carpet of a Hollywood movie premiere as Flint’s (very fake) girlfriend.
At least, the relationship is supposed to be fake. But the way he slips his arm around me, his breath tickling my ear, the chemistry feels like something real.
The trouble is, I’m not really built to handle his fast-paced celebrity life. Most days, I prefer the company of squirrels to people. I should be glad we’re only pretending.

I’m just not sure my heart got the memo.
