    I know I say this after every book in the series but I really love Happy Cat. That town is seriously crazy in all the best of ways. I can't even think about the series without getting a big cheesy grin on my face.And the chemistry between Hope and Blake has been simmering in the background of the previous books.

And I have been dying to find out why there was so much animosity between them. And I can honestly say I didn't see that coming. Hope is such a sweetheart and I have been a huge fan of hers forever. Her anxiety over her affect on electrical appliances and her concern for all the Happy Cats furred citizens made her my hero. But as much as I liked her I really loved Blake too. For all the snark between him and Hope he always came running to her rescue. He was such an awesome leading man. And when his alpha alpaca came out I did get a little swoony. I would have liked to see a little more of his vines and tasting room but it was far from necessary to the story.I personally didn't find this one as funny as the previous books but I did get a few laugh out loud moments and the emotion felt a little deeper. And the little teases for Clint and cupcake have me dying for the next book in the series. As much as for them as for the sneak peeks into everyone else's HEA's.

Once again I’m in awe of the kind of minds that can deliver such unique hilarity and colorful creativity that, with no effort at all, captivate the reader while still delivering an enticing, endearing story that touches the heart.This time we get the story of the third O'Dell brother, Blake, and animal sanctuary owner, Hope St. Claire. From the previous books, we were lead to believe that Blake and Hope utterly despise each other, even though he's the one who charges in with his trusty toolbox to fix electrical issues when Hope fries the circuits of her latest appliance casualty. But fair warning, all is not as it appears with these two, and they have a major secret they’ve been keeping from everyone for years. Hope needs to get married yesterday in order to save her beloved alpaca from her money-hungry cousin and, after exhausting all other possibilities, gets Blake to agree to marry her. But her cousin, who really wants the cash Chewpaca's stud services will bring, hires a PI to watch Blake and Hope 24/7 to prove the marriage is fake. And while Hope is convinced she's a failure where love is concerned, Blake seizes the opportunity to rectify Hope's hopeless view of love and make her his, once and for all. It certainly doesn’t hurt Blake's plan with the mandatory displays of affection necessary to convince prying eyes that the marriage is legit.Y'all, this town and these people are ridiculously funny but so loveable and enchanting that I want to move to Happy Cat and become an honorary O'Dell. There are just enough quirks to make it charming, and if there were any possibility for calm or boring, the critter menagerie makes that all but impossible. Between our favorite raccoon and his family, the delightfully wacky secondary characters, and an authentic, captivating and loveable hero and heroine, there's never a dull moment on Blake and Hope's journey to forever. With impeccably timed comedy gold, perfectly flawed, engaging characters and just-right touches of steam and emotion, you’ll fall in love with all things Happy Cat and the O'Dell family. These characters and their story will touch your heart, tickle your funny bone and fill your soul, so get your copy and escape to Happy Cat today!*I read an early edition of this book freely and voluntarily, having made no commitment to provide feedback and receiving no compensation of any kind from any source.

The drama and mystery infused throughout added even more excitement to the story.I discovered early on that this book is part of a series. I hadn’t realized before reading this one. The story was presented in a way that I had no problem reading this one first but it did make me interested in going back and starting from the beginning. I loved all of these characters and I’m intrigued to see how their stories began.

From the very first page, I couldn’t help but root for Hope and Blake and their animal menagerie to find their happily ever after. Seriously, who wouldn’t want these Happy Cat life-long residents to find love in each other—again. Yep, they’ve been married before—for about 24 hours—and neither forgot what it felt like to be loved by the other.Even if they acted like they hated each other. Immensely. But as the saying goes, it’s a fine line between love and hate.And Blake and Hope are balancing precariously without a net.As are the alpacas, Chewpaca and Too-Pac. Especially Chewpaca, who’s stud fees could rake in the money. Serious money. But unlike her cousin, Kyle, Hope’s not in it for the money. Nope, she’s in it for the health and welfare of her animals—Chewpaca included. Because animals give love freely, without strings or judgement. And Hope needs more love and less judgement in her life.And Blake is just in it for the love of a good woman. Hope, to be exact. And he’s just the man to prove to her that she’s loved and can love back. I didn’t want to put Hitched down until I read the very last word. I absolutely loved my time spent with Blake, Hope and the rest of the crazy crew from Happy Cat. I laughed (a lot), swooned, cheered, and fanned myself a few times with all that heat between Blake and Hope. And I can’t wait to return to this crowd for the next one—Humbugged which is Clint and the cupcake lady’s story! ~ Missy, 5 stars

    This couple is no exception. I was really looking forward to this story because the characters were always bickering and she has a penchant for electronics to go mashed potato around her.

It adds so much bittersweet meaning to how they are together. Now, Blake and Hope are married for nurturing purposes only, to save an alpaca from breeding slavery!The fun is everywhere from his secret plans to win her over to all sorts of animals rampaging around in all their innocent, destructive glory. The bingo night is priceless, the conspiracy to keep the animals safe is just pure magic of wit, and the chemistry between these lovable characters is the envy of bunnies. Hot!Hope is starving for love but dealing with trust issues. It made me want to hug her as much as live with her in that amazing animal shelter she runs. And Blake is so trustworthy and hot and good. I fell in love with him!So a mission to believe in the future mixes with rescue animals, hilarious dialogues, and side characters that feel alive and adorable. The cute couple faces a surprising danger at the end when they have to fight in film-like style for all the things they love. I absolutely loved the insane fun and the cuteness of their actions. The epilogue is one laugh after another in the middle of neighbourly support and quirkiness. This series is the best!You can't imagine how impatient I am for the next next story! 💔

Their writing styles blended effortlessly, transitioning seamlessly between the two of them, and coming together perfectly. This story flowed so smoothly and consistently, I honestly couldn’t tell who was writing what, which is exactly what I want in a collaborative effort.Hitched, the third book in the Happy Cat series, was just a 4.5 SMOOCHES!I read the previous two books in the Happy Cat series by Lili Valente and Pippa Grant, and I enjoyed them both. These two authors are fantastic together! Their writing styles blended effortlessly, transitioning seamlessly between the two of them, and coming together perfectly. This story flowed so smoothly and consistently, I honestly couldn’t tell who was writing what, which is exactly what I want in a collaborative effort.Hitched, the third book in the Happy Cat series, was just as charming as the first two books, Hosed and Hammered. A romantic comedy set in the wacky little Southern small town of Happy Cat, and it stars the town’s nice guy, Blake, as the hero, and the animal sanctuary owning, electronics-zapping, Hope, as the heroine. Part enemies-to-lovers, part second-chance romance, Blake and Hope enter into a fake marriage to save her animal sanctuary, and specifically her beloved, pedigreed alpaca, Chewpaca, from her scheming cousin’s clutches. Blake and Hope have a bit of history between them that they don’t discuss—and no one else in town knows about—and Blake isn’t about to squander this opportunity as he sets a plan in motion to turn his fake marriage to Hope into something real. There was plenty of action in this story thanks to an overly friendly, yoga-practicing private detective hired by Hope’s cousin to prove her marriage was a farce, the town gossip, Ruthie, hot on their tails for the dirt on their surprise nuptials, and a klutzy cupcake baking newcomer to town who is seriously giving Hope’s electronics zapping a run for its money. Of course this series wouldn’t be complete without the town’s resident trash panda, George Clooney—with his family in tow—popping up at the worst possible moments.Hitched had an almost slap-stick-like quality to the comedic portion of the plot, I was audibly laughing and grinning the whole way through it. Completely endearing side characters, a hilariously entertaining plot with a bit of a suspenseful spin to it, and a sweet, steamy romance came together wonderfully into this amusing romantic comedy that kept me happily tapping my Kindle. I loved Blake and Hope, I loved all the characters in kooky little town, and I am looking forward to my next trip back to Happy Cat. Hitched by Pippa Grant and Lili Valente gets 4.5 smooches from me!~Danielle Palumbo

Love me a story of a second chance romance. Can’t say I’ve read enough stories where those second chances come because of an alpaca, to know if it’s a trope that’s a favourite of mine! But it sounded like a fun romantic comedy and so I gave it a go.On reflection, this isn’t really a romantic comedy in the way I expected. It’s got laughs and humour (including hilarious, pun-tastic animal names) but it’s more romantic silliness and shenanigans than anything else. That’s not necessarily a bad thing but it didn’t really hit the mark with me. Racoons cavorting around town, goats going wild in the town square and hedgehogs in pockets - it felt too far fetched and silly for me in my current mood, I’m afraid.That’s not to say the book was bad. It was eminently readable and it was never a chore to read a few chapters. It’s just that it didn’t grab me and make me desperately want to keep reading. As such, it took me a number of days to get through it despite it being an easy read with a writing style that’s entertaining.As for the romance itself - I really liked Blake. He was adorable and he really did love Hope and want her to give them another chance. Their close proximity as they did the whole ‘fake husband and wife thing’ made for some enjoyable situations and I liked the clever reason that Hope and Blake had to play pretend to such an extent. Hope. Hmmm - she wasn’t really my favourite. I understood her reasons for giving up on love. Sort of. It just seemed a little like a knee-jerk reaction that carried on for far too long. But all’s well that ends well so everyone’s happy.The little town this book is set in is called Happy Cat. Several of the other residents are already coupled up and they presumably got their stories earlier in the series that this book is a part of (which I think is called the Happy Cat series but I’m not sure!) It does stand alone but I think if I’d read the other books in the series before reading this one, I’d have a better appreciation for this particular story, the town, its quirks and crazy characters.It didn’t rock my world but this was still a fun book that I would recommend for fans of the authors or for those following the Happy Cat series. 3 stars from me.

Franky i really think that these animals are really helping in making these books a success and really add brilliant comedy.We get to meet Blakes brother Clint in this book and what we can only imagine to be what is going to be his love intesrest in the cake lady who he has helped to save twice in this story.

Hitched is a great example of romantic comedy at it’s best; the romance is at times swoon worthy and there was also enough drama and quirkiness to make the story one that I couldn’t put down. Not to mention that the animals added another layer to the story.Hitched is a light hearted and entertaining read that will engage you and keep you riveted from the first to the last chapter.This was a great addition to the series and I cannot wait for more.

In order to save her beloved alpaca, Chewbacca, Hope proposes to Blake to fulfill a request in her Grandmother's will. This sets off a chain of events that are both amusing but also heartwarming. This is a true ensemble rom-com because part of the wonder of this book (and all the books in the series) is the fantastic and hilarious supporting cast. Blake’s brothers and their respective women, most of whom were introduced in the prior books, as well as the neighbors in Happy Cat add in laughs but also so much heart. I wish I lived anywhere near this town so I could visit the craziness. But the animals were always entangled in my favorite parts of the book. They caused the loudest chuckles. The hangry but brilliant raccoon, George Cooney, the baby goat whisperer, Chewbacca (yes, and baby goats!), the two little hedgehogs, and the humans who love them. A well rounded, hilarious book that made me smile from beginning to end. I didn’t want to leave Happy Cat but now, I’m just waiting to come back :o) I received an ARC and am leaving an unbiased review.

With the exception of George Cooney, pet raccoon, the animals actually act like animals here. Since the men are all brothers, the couples from the previous two books are also prominent in this book. I did enjoy this one, but it wasn't phenomenal. It was such a refreshing change from the 'trying to hard to out-comedy previous books' feeling I've been getting from Ms Grant's books lately, until a few scenes near the end that are way over the top. If you like straight up romantic comedy without a lot of depth (although Hope does make some personal development progress, albeit rapidly and without professional help) then you will probably love this book.

Going in, I didn't know this was a series about the O'Dell brothers. Again, now I have to read about his brothers even though I know spoilers. This story is about Blake and Hope, whom I am going to assume that everyone thinks they are sworn enemies and hate each other. But I found it funny that no one knows the truth. But what was plainly staring everyone in the face. Our heroine finds herself in need of a husband, so she can save her alpaca from a money-hungry cousin, who will do anything to get what they want. Guess who agrees to be her husband? What they don't know is that someone is watching their every move. But Blake doesn't mind showing a lot of PDA, but is it all for show or is it real?I found their romance genuinely flawed and honestly hilarious, there was never a dull moment. The entire cast is witty and captivating. I can't recommend this book enough. The romance with touch your heart and tickle that funny bone. So go ahead and pick up Hitched.

Hope and Blake had me hooked long before I started their story and got that page-turning blurb dropped on me (plus I'm a huge animal lover!!) and I couldn't put them down for one single moment.If you like a lighter, easier, softer, funnier romance that'll give you nothing but all the good feelings and leave you so very satisfied then this is a must read series.

Blake O’Dell and Hope St. Claire are both stubborn characters, but Hope is the most stubborn of the two. I loved her personality and her determination that there will be nothing going on between the two of them, it is a marriage of convenience to keep her alpaca (her love and devotion is for her alpaca only). Blake is one HOT man!! I love his determination especially. This is my first read by these duo authors and I will be going back for more of their books. Hitched is a standalone book and I definitely recommend it. Go one click and enjoy!

    Blake and Hope are perfect for each other, but how does perfect work when only half of the couple is willing to admit to feelings? When you grow up never being good enough and without love and acceptance it’s hard to believe you deserve love as an adult. Throw in a couple Alpacas, George and his rowdy family, some dogs and other fun loving animals and maybe just maybe this couple will realize they are everything to each other!This series is so much fun! Don’t miss out on Hitched!

    This is a hilarious and entertaining fake marriage, second chance romance. It is sweet, funny, swoon-worthy, emotional, romantic, sexy, and steamy. There is a wonderful, unusual set of characters that you will fall in love with. The plot is unique, entertaining, and charming. It was a fast-paced read that I enjoyed from start to finish & recommend reading it!****ARC generously provided in exchange for an honest review.****

Hope's grandmother has left everything on her farm to her grandchildren. However, there is a stipulation she has placed in her will. There is so much I want to tell you, but am afraid if I do it will be spoiling it. Hope is a beautiful young woman who has been known to wreak havoc on poor defenseless electronics. She has a passion for animals, and can not let a single one go if they need help. The sanctuary is her life and will do anything and everything to save it. Even if that means doing something so drastic like begging Blake O'Dell for his help. Blake has had strong feelings for Hope for as long as he can remember. He will do anything to help her even if that means going along with her crazy idea. We get to follow along on their journey to find the happiness they both so deserve. Now lets not forget about the crazy antics of George Cooney our favorite trash panda along with our prized alpaca Chewie. There are some laugh out loud moments, and a few moments where Mr. O'Dell will have you swooning...

    Electrifying! The town of Happy Cat is as charming as ever, filled with interesting people and even more interesting pets! Hope and Blake also have an interesting history, and it was a beautiful and emotional journey to their HEA. Hope is more charmingly vulnerable than I expected, and Blake was sweeter than I ever could have predicted. Together they are a crime solving super duo! I loved this book like crazy!

And this is when we discover that Hope and Blake once got married in Las Vegas.As long as you can forget or overlook some plot holes, the primary one for me being Hope and Blake’s annulment as well it’s lack of use as a plot device ( 🙁 ), you can expect some laugh-out-loud moments as well as steamy ones as Hope and Blake rediscover the fire they began in Las Vegas.While I really liked Hope and Blake as a couple, I did wish a bit more had been done with them.As for the ending, it was superhero electric, page-turning, and left me feeling happy.I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

No, no there is not! Welcome back to Happy Cat where the town is filled with handsome O'Dell brothers, cooky raccoons who dabble in Clown Costumes and garbage can surfing, hedgehogs who steal panties from clotheslines, and feisty women who are super fierce and sure of themselves and what they want! If you haven't read Hosed and Hammered, you don't really have to but….. I recommend them heartily! It helps to know what all the rest of the cast and crew of Happy Cat have been up to, especially those hunky O'Dell brothers! But Hitched is the fake relationship/marriage of convenience/friends to enemies to lovers that you've been waiting for, you just didn't know it. Ok, well it's at least what I was waiting for and sorry, not sorry but I LOVED it!!!!!Lili Valente and Pippa Grant are the ultimate duo - they write so well together that I can't tell where one starts and the other ends - ladies, you really knocked it out of the park here and surprised me at the same time, and here's why… This is where I should have a snappy comeback, because I know for a fact that Hope got married first. But we don’t talk about that. Ever. Throughout the series, Hope St. Claire and Blake O'Dell have had this incredible chemistry - c'mon, you know I love my enemies to lovers bantering but what we all didn't know is that that this fake marriage isn't the first time that Blake and Hope have sauntered down the aisle. THAT'S RIGHT PEOPLE, THIS IS NOT A DRILL! Blake and Hope were married before - drunken Vegas escapades for the win! - and it didn't end the way that Blake was hoping, hence some of the angst between them. Hope and Blake have bantered their way into our hearts - especially with her propensity for shorting out electronics - because their chemistry is just so… ELECTRIC!!!! And when they come together (pun definitely intended!) it was nuclear!!!!! I called their HEA from the first moment I saw them together. I CALLED IT!!!!! They were perfect - their banter was PERFECT and you could just tell that the banter was something that was going to become a playful part of their romance.This is Pippa and Lili. If you think there weren't wacky moments of hilarity, you are sorely mistaken. Sex toy bingo and Baby Goat Yoga??? His lordship the trash panda flips me off—I swear he does—and scampers around what’s left of the enclosure, making yogis and goats scream. He tosses aside mats and knocks down more of the fence in his quest for baby carrots, careless of the Zen and property he’s destroying as he literally steals snacks from the mouth of babes.“George, STOP! Bad raccoon! Bad!” When did the little beast get so fast? How is he so fast? He’s the size of three normal raccoons, but he’s dashing around like he’s half-cheetah, and of course the babies are freaking out in response. You’re welcome, friends!There are also some incredibly sweet moments, because this wouldn't be a true romance without moments that make you go…And I'm not even thinking about the impromptu picnic in the tasting room, but rather little moments like when Hope sleepwalks straight into Blake's arms, and his sofa bed, and he's so kind and gentlemanly about it. Throughout it all she thinks that she just can't have him, that relationships are always doomed for her because she's a St. Claire and all their marriages are toxic wastelands. When Hope finally accepts that she isn't doomed to be alone but meant to be loved is beautiful. Just beautiful!So let me share with you just a few of my…Favourite Lines - “Your parents love me, boo-boo-cakes,” Blake grits out through his own smile. Doubtful—also, boo-boo-cakes?—but I beam at him.My heart is achy and empty, like it’s hit that point in a good romance novel where all is lost, only the author died before she could finish the story. And now the two characters she left behind will live in limbo, in the land where happily ever after never comes.Blake: She’s the one who demanded the annulment in Vegas, not me. She doesn’t think I’m marriage material, except when she needs something. Clint: But you went along with it AGAIN, Mr. “Marriage is for Love.” So clearly you see an opportunity here. Blake: An opportunity to make her as miserable as she makes me. Clint: Not buying it, bro. You’re secretly hoping it works out. “Actually, I make love more like a giraffe,” Cara says. It’ll be fine, they say. No ghosts or demons or blood in the elevators or creepy twins this time around, and absolutely no one will go insane and try to kill you with an ax. They’re probably right, but I’m still not setting foot in that hotel anytime soon. Maybe ever. Normally, he’s far too lazy and spoiled to actually hunt for his food. But I guess being on an ice chip and cricket diet since his run-in with the peanut butter has made George hangry. And hangry George is actually kinda terrifying. Do not get between tired Southern mamas and Publix fried chicken on a Friday night. They will run over your feet with their cart and not even bother to bless your heart after. "To give you what you really need instead of what I think you need, you know? And…listen better and shit.” She laughs softly. “That’s the most important part, I hear. The ‘and shit’ part.” “Go on, get,” he says, shooing the would-be cake bandits back toward the gate enclosing the backyard. “I’m serious. Mom and Dad used to raise show wieners. They’ve got a kennel plenty big enough for all of you.” Only I get to make her moan like that, Mr. Taco. “Chewpaca. You in, dude?” Chewy hums and nods. Hope giggles at their interaction. “I love how normal and down-to-earth your family is.” “Al-poker!” Mom and Pop cry together, then burst into giggles, making all of us laugh too. “Well, you were very heroic during the argument part. It was pretty hot.” “Yeah?” he asks, his chest puffing up, making me laugh. “Yes. But now you look like a rooster on the verge of a victory strut.” “I’ll do that when we get home,” he says, wiggling his brows. “Naked. The way god intended.” I can't wait for more from Happy Cat! This has been one of my most favourite series I have ever read - and while I hate seeing that it will soon come to an end (we only have one O'Dell brother left people!!!! THIS IS NOT A DRILL!!!!!) but I know that it will be everything I could want and more! One-click this baby today and fall in love with Hope, Blake and Chewpaca (his bonus epilogue is TO DIE FOR!!!!) and then you can wait with me for more from this hilarious cast of characters. Seriously, I'm trying to be patient but gahhhhh!!!! I can't wait for more!!!!Read this one - you're going to love it!

We’ve met both before in their brother’s Ryan and Jace’s books.

And, in the last book they were scene kissing in one of Hope’s barns before she pushed Blake away. Turns ou Hitched is the third book in the Happy Cat Ga.

On one hand they seemed to dislike each other but on the other Blake is always coming over to Hope’s animal rescue farm to repair the electronics she regularly blows out. And, in the last book they were scene kissing in one of Hope’s barns before she pushed Blake away. Turns out they were married for a minute in Vegas, had a heck of a honeymoon night and then Hope insisted on an annulment. So I’m not sure if this is a second chance at love or a frienimies to lovers story?The book is of course loaded with Pippa Grant’s irreverent humor. When I read the part about Hope and the pace maker I almost cried laughing. And of course there are more than enough zany animal characters to go around. I enjoyed Chewbaka the alpaca who plays a major role in this story but I continue to find George more annoying than cute. Maybe it’s because I know in real life racoons are not the cute cuddly animals some people think they are? But mostly I think its because other than when George come through to help save the day he’s mostly obnoxious and ill behaved. Despite Pippa’s humorous moments I found myself sort of down for much of this story because I felt so bad for Hope and her lack of self-esteem because of her cold hearted overly judgmental parents and fear that she could never be in a loving relationship because her family seemed to be cursed with dysfunctional relationships. So for a brief story synopsis, Hope’s grandmother who had left her the farm she uses as a animal rescue shelter passes away. In her will it states whichever of her grandchildren marries first gets the property and everything animal and material on it. Hope knows her a-hole cousin will want it because he wants the alpaca which is very valuable. So Hope out of options asks Blake to marry her. Now as I said, four years ago Hope had their spur of the moment marriage annulled because she feared she could never be in a long term relationship. But she loves Blake even though she acts like she doesn’t like him to protect herself from him and him from her. But Blake doesn’t know this. He still loves Hope and is still angry at the sting of her rejection and insistence on the dissolution of their quickie marriage. He thinks Hope really doesn’t like him. Still when she’s in distress over the possibility of losing her animal refuge and offers to help him get the liquor permit that will allow him to open the tasting center at his fledgling winery he agrees to a sham marriage. But her cousin has also gotten married on the same day so the lawyer who is executor of the grandmother’s estate puts everything on hold until he can find legal precedent to determine who should inherit the farm. Then the cousin accuses Hope of having a sham marriage with Blake for the purpose of getting the farm. To prove him false Hope and Blake are forced to cohabitate until the courts can settle the matter. Well, you can figure out how it all works out from there although you don’t want to miss all the dips and turns and laughs along the way.

To save her beloved animals from being evicted... or worse, she needs to marry someone... anyone... and SOON.A marriage of convenience between two people who have already walked down the aisle once before... what could possibly go wrong?~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Hitched was a highly entertaining story filled with crazy animal antics, a fake marriage and the entire town of Happy Cat, Georgia performing at it's always-eccentric finest! Hope and Blake once shared an impromptu wedding, followed by an evening that neither of them will ever forget, but once their marriage was dissolved, so were any loving feelings they once shared... Hope grew up seeing the worst in marriage and vowed that she would never enter into such a farce if she could ever help it. But with the care of a very special alpaca and a whole farm of animals depending on her, Hope needs to marry to secure her inheritance, and her options are dwindling. Asking Blake is her final option, and the one person she hates to ask... because Blake can see beyond her walls like no one else...Blake is well known in town as an infinitely helpful and all around nice guy... to everyone but Hope, that is. Ever since their relationship that wasn't, Blake and Hope get along like oil and water, but committing for a second time is about to change everything about their lives in Happy Cat as they know it...This was a great read! While adorably frustrating at times, Hope and Blake have a love that is meant to be... as long as they stop sabotaging it along the way. This story was sexy, laugh out loud funny and an endearing addition to the always entertaining, Happy Cat family. I continue to fall in love with the residents of Happy Cat, in all of their meddling and quirky endeavors, and Hitched was another fantastically hilarious and not to be missed story!I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.Check out the Blog!https://nightbirdnovels.com/2019/09/0...Follow Me on InstagramFollow Me on FacebookFollow Me on Twitter
