Eloise and the Grump Next Door (Oakley Island Romcoms Book 1)

I’m not sure which is worse–the lawyer handling my grandmother’s estate or the attack pelican living on the screened-in porch. Just kidding–I’ll take the pelican any day.

After graduation, I thought I’d be off to grad school, doing research on my favorite poet. Instead, I’m renovating my late grandmother’s home and posting about the process on Instagram. Talk about a detour …
But here I am. Turning Gran’s beach house into a bed and breakfast–a process that would be a lot easier if I didn’t have to deal with the grumpy lawyer living next door. It doesn’t help that the night Jake and I met, I got a little tipsy, and he had to carry me back to my hotel.

But the longer I stay on Oakley Island, the more I feel a connection to my childhood and to my grandmother. This isn’t the life I dreamed of, but dreams can change. Especially when new dreams include a future with Jake. On the outside, he might be pricklier than a puffer fish, but I catch glimpses of a delicious, cinnamon roll centre.

Did I mention the tattoos he hides underneath those crisp button-down shirts? Yowza.
When I’m suddenly presented with the academic opportunity of my dreams (former dreams?), my picturesque life on Oakley starts to unravel.
A part of me wants to stay. If only a certain tattooed grump didn’t seem so determined to send me away …

Merritt and Her Childhood Crush (Oakley Island Romcoms Book 2)

I said I’d never set foot on Oakley Island again. Not so long as HE lived there. But after my life implodes, I’m reconsidering EVERYTHING. Including my reasons for avoiding the first—and only—man I’ve ever loved.
I’m a high achiever. Driven. Maybe a little TOO driven.
So when my boyfriend confesses to cheating AND steals the promotion I’ve been working toward for years, I do the unthinkable for someone like me.
I break.
But the timing couldn’t be better for me to fall apart—I can escape to the idyllic Oakley Island and oversee the renovations on my late grandmother’s estate.

There’s just one tiny, massive, little problem: no one told me the contractor is the grown up version of the boy I fell in love with years ago.
He was my first love. My first kiss.
My first heartbreak.
Now, I’m faced with seeing Hunter daily. Being his boss. Forging a new dynamic that fits our adult selves.
Hunter is bigger. Bearded. Talks in grunts rather than words.
And has just as much hold on me as he ever did.

Trouble is, Hunter’s life is on Oakley. His daughter is on Oakley. And it was never my plan to stay here permanently.
Do I really want to risk having my heart broken a second time? More importantly, do I want to risk breaking his?

Returning to Oakley Island and taking over the reins on the renovations of her Grandmother’s property Merritt has mixed feelings about the weeks ahead. Her big city life has imploded after her boyfriend not only cheated but got his mistress pregnant and is now marrying her. But the promotion she had been working towards had been stolen from underneath her by the same man who cheated on her. Now she is attempting to work out what her life looks like going forward. Staying on Oakley Island where she spent her childhood summers would be great if her childhood crush and now contractor on the house wasn’t in front of her.

It’s been eleven years since Hunter last saw the love of his life in person. Since the day she left and broke his heart, he has married and divorced a school friend and resulting in his daughter Isabelle – the one thing he can’t regret about that part of his life. With the death of Merritt’s grandmother, he has been waiting for the day she would return. Taking over the renovations from her sister Eloise he wasn’t ready for his heart to feel so much at seeing her again.

Having a history between them proves difficult as they attempt to find their way through the renovations. Opting for friendship to start with, although each wishes for more, however, Hunter’s ex-wife Cassidy manages to squeeze her way into their fledging relationship. Merritt second-guesses the decisions she has made since her last trip to the island as she bonds with Isabelle, Hunter’s rescue animals and of course Hunter. But she’s only here temporarily, right? She needs to get back to her big city life and leave Hunter to his small-town life – right?

Sadie and the Bad Boy Billionaire (Oakley Island Romcoms Book 3)

I will NOT fall for the smart-mouthed, pretty-boy billionaire who owns Oakley Island. But his yacht is another story …
Love and happily ever after? It’s not for me. I’m much happier keeping everyone at arm’s length, focusing on my government cybersecurity work.
But then I push things a little too far and hack my way into trouble. When I need to lay low and stay off the radar for a bit, what better place to do so than on Oakley Island with my sisters?

With limited housing options, I reluctantly agree to stay on the yacht of the very annoying Benedict King—the billionaire who has been messing—flirting?—with me since we met.
I did NOT agree, however, to a voyage out to sea.
But I wake up to find the yacht that should be docked and empty somewhere in the Atlantic with two government agents tasked with babysitting me and one Benedict King.
Who also lied about being my boyfriend.
Typical rich man—thinking he can take whatever he wants.

But he won’t take my heart. Not even when I see his softer side, see behind his walls, see the real man behind the reputation.
Honestly, this might be more dangerous than any of the other trouble I stirred up. Because if I fall for Benedict King, I’m not sure there’s any hope of rescue.

But as the FBI comes looking for her Ben poses as her boyfriend and helps ‘kidnap’ her on his yacht into the Atlantic Ocean. time together helps them realise their true feelings but Sadie is still recovering from her last relationship – can Ben and Sadie work things out?
