Did you fall in love with The English Brothers? Were you hot for the Winslows? Katy Regnery's New York Times bestselling Blueberry Lane series continues with The Rousseau siblings in 2016!
For as long as Madeleine “Mad” Rousseau can remember, she’s been the “sweet” twin to her sister Jax’s “sassy.” But after an especially painful break-up, Mad decides she’s had enough of being sweet. Children’s librarian during the day, she begins visiting Philly’s seedier nightspots on a quest for adventure. When Cortlandt “Cort” Ambler, the ex-boyfriend of Mad’s sister, Jax, saves her from disaster on one such evening, an unlikely friendship is born between the rebellious librarian and the moonlighting pianist…and two broken hearts begin a journey toward being whole again. Get to know the families of Blueberry Lane! 

 *All books in The Blueberry Lane Series can be enjoyed as standalone novels.*

EXCERPT:

She stood on the sidewalk facing him, a sweet smile on her lips. Cort gestured to his front door with a flick of his chin. “Want to come in?” “Yes. But we have to talk first.” “What happened to ‘Take me to bed’?” She sighed. “Fresh air cleared my head.” He glanced down at his swollen cock, all but bursting against the zipper of his jeans. “I’m dying a little here, baby.” Her eyes followed his, dancing with mirth when she looked back up at him. “So I see.” “I’m not alone either,” he said, dropping his eyes to her nipples, which strained against her thin, billowy blouse. “No,” she said, her voice slightly lower, her smile giving way to a hotter, more needy look. “You’re not.” “So let’s talk inside.” She shook her head no. “Here.” Cort sighed, hitching her flowered bag a little higher on his shoulder, waiting for her to continue. “No talking about Jax or Thatcher,” she said. “If you talk about Jax, I won’t be able to stay. I’ll feel too guilty. And if you talk about Thatcher, I’ll feel too angry. Promise?” “I promise.” She took a step closer to him. “And this one’s big…No falling in love with each other. We’re just about impossible, you and me, so we can’t—you know—bring that sort of emotion into this. We can enjoy each other, but that’s all, Cort. Promise.” He flinched as she finished. He could feel the involuntary muscle reaction that narrowed his eyes and told him that it was too late. It was a lifetime too late to tell him not to love her, because he’d loved her for most of his life. Her gentleness, her quiet grace, the peace he’d always found in her presence now combined with the scorching chemistry between them that couldn’t be denied. Over and over again throughout his life, he’d looked for her, tried to find someone like her, but his heart had fixed on hers so long ago, it was all but impossible for him not to love her. The only way he could promise her was to promise not to “fall” this weekend, only because he’d already fallen years before. “I promise not to fall.” She smiled at him, though the smile had lost a bit of the lightheartedness it had held minutes earlier. “Do you need any promises from me?” He nodded, closing the distance between them. “Yeah, I do.” Her eyes widened, flaring with heat, the black of her pupils obliterating the green of her irises as she pressed her breasts against his chest. “Promise to leave nothing on the table, Mad. Give me everything you’ve got for twenty-four hours.” “Except…” Her voice broke. “Except my love. I promise.” His heart clenched at her omission, and it made him want to push her out of her comfort zone a little. “Promise to touch me everywhere with your hot little mouth.” “I promise,” she murmured, her throat moving as she swallowed. His eyes narrowed. “Promise to open your legs so I can slide inside of you as if I’ve been doing it all my life.” “Cort,” she whimpered, her eyes fluttering closed as she looked down at where her chest heaved into his. “I need you.”

First and foremost I have to say that the harp scene is to die for.
Good thinking Ms. Regnery in writing Jax’s book before writing Mad’s book because otherwise I would have had an absolute conniption. I knew why I didn’t like Jax and well now it has just been confirmed.
Mad is Jax’s twin sister, she is the quiet one who for some time has always lived in her sisters shadow.
Mad is a great heroine well she is slightly whiney but who am I to judge? Just a reader. A word of advice to all you ladies never ever date a therapist, they are manipulative, sociopaths and well just not a good idea. Unless you want that person to use all and I mean ALL of your insecurities against you. This happens to Mad and for the final time she calls it quits.
While having a walking pity party, Mad lands in a part of Philly she hasn’t been to before and decides to live by ordering four shots of tequila, drinking them all at once.
“I just threw up… in a bar.” “Yes, you did,” he confirmed, standing in front of her at the foot of the stairs. “Spectacularly.” “Oh God,” she muttered, leaning her forehead on her knees. “The good news is that most of the alcohol probably wasn’t absorbed into your system yet, so you’ll feel much better in a .little while.” She sobbed softly, then sniffed. “No lady would throw up at a bar.” “You’re clearly not a lady,” he teased.
That is until she is saved by Cort Ambler. Wow, I am impressed he is a fantastic Hero. He is the broody musician with a heart of gold. He is always doing the right thing even if it ruins the thing he wanted the most. Luckily enough fate gives them a second chance. Cort is an honourable man. He is funny and hits on Mad right from the start.
“I’m not kissing you.”
“You want to though.”
“Merde, you’re cocky.”
But through Cort saving Mad, and them even spending such short time with one another they still don’t want the evening to end.
“Do you drink tea?”
He fucking hated tea. “I’d love some.”
Although I didn’t get it all the drama and why Mad couldn’t have grown a backbone sooner but hey I only have a brother and well things were easily resolved in that department. I’d punch him or call him something quite inventive and then that would have been that. Mad keeps on starting something and then pulls back due to her sister. There is something that is unforgivable and it is Jax’s story to tell. But that is what happens when they get stuck between sisters. See below for the spoiler to the twin sister conundrum.
As Sloane put it
It’s beyond girl code. Its sister code. And that shit is Kevlar.
You don’t date your sister’s ex-boyfriend. Even if it was only for a month, a week, an hour and a second. The feelings had always been there but were only dormant until they met again. And Jax did it all just because her ego took a hit and after so many years she didn’t say anything.
I found this book to still be quite glossy, I was missing some depth to it. They’d meet up although they had commitments and then would just leave. But it is better than Jonquils for Jax. I also have to ask myself if the author is just writing the books in a quick fashion to just please her readers without any real depth. I know I’m being a cow but I feel as if the quality has lessened.

About the Author:

authorphoto New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013. Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas. Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller. In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States. Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home
