#2, With a Kiss
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
There were some problems Skee-Ball and beer just couldn’t fix.
Being with Camden was everything Riley ever wanted… and so much more. More stress, more money, more family, more obstacles, but also more love. Oh, and more sex. That too. No one had ever made Riley feel so needed, and perhaps that was the problem. Now facing a new job, new responsibilities, and a new life with her fiancé, Riley quickly begins to feel overwhelmed. The only thing she isn’t unsure of is her love for Camden. But love can only take her so far.
Camden wants to make everything easy for Riley. He wants to fix all her problems, take away all her stress, and make life easy for her, but he’s quickly realizing that Riley’s biggest issues—the ones that make her doubt herself—can’t be fixed by anyone but her. That doesn’t stop him from trying. She’s an independent woman, but that doesn’t mean he can’t spoil her every now and then.
Riley’s going to have to accept that Camden loves making her life easier, and Camden’s going to have to realize that she only gives in because she loves him. But when the past comes back to disrupt Riley’s future, Camden will have no choice but to let his fierce partner and fiancée handle her s**t.
Will Riley be able to let the past go? Will Camden’s need to take care of Riley push her too far? Will their love for each other be enough?
It's full of heart, heat, sweetness, and surprises!
Riled Up is the second book in the With A Kiss series by one of my favorite authors. Anie Michaels first introduced us to Cameron and Riley in the Passion in Portland Anthology. It was the beginning of their story, it could have also been the end. I am not sure if Anie's plan was to write more or if her fans wanted more and she delivered. But, either way, thank you Anie!
Camden and Riley's lives changed six months ago. One basketball game. One kiss. It changed their lives forever. Their pieces have been a whirlwind ever since and they wouldn't change it for the world. They found each other. Their love is everything. It's beautiful. It's crazy. It's sexy. It's fun. Its what dreams are made of in their book. But, in other aspects of Riley's life, she is feeling overwhelmed. She is an event planner. It's full of pressure to get things done but when she gets the opportunity to work along side her boss, it kicks it up a notch. It makes her face her past. A past she has been avoiding for almost ten years. Will this cause her to go over the edge or force her to let go of her past and move on with her future? After all...she has her own wedding to plan!
Awww...Camden and Riley are so adorable. Camden is such a sweetheart and his surprises are epic. He might be sweet but he is also part alpha when he needs to be. He wants Riley to be happy. It's all he has ever wanted and will do anything to make her smile. To feel loved. To feel wanted. He hates seeing her stressed out. Riley is feeling the pressure of everything, even some good surprises cause her to freak out. She is strong though. She just needs to remember what's at the end of the tunnel.
Overall...It's a beautiful conclusion to their story. It's full of heart, heat, sweetness, and surprises! I just love this couple and their friends. I hope to see all of them again. I know there are more stories to tell. And Anie also delivers.
“I’m not good at relationships, Riley. I’m good at being with you. With you is the only place I need to be.”
“How in the world did I get lucky enough to brainwash you into loving me?”
“It’s your a-, babe. Grade A.”
“Shut up,” I said with more laughter, wiping tears from my cheeks.
“Is the counselor willing to enter into negotiations?” I teased.
“Welcome home sex and hot lawyer talk? You’re too good to me, babe.”
