Mess With Me is another fun and sexy read in the Happy Endings Book Club series. This one focuses on Ally and Ethan. One of my favorite things about this series is not only the romance, but the friendships formed. There are so many different dynamic relationships, and in Mess With Me, I also love the journey of self discovery, especially for Ally. She's learning how to be fine on her own, because past relationships have burned her. From the get-go, I loved the little misunderstandings of the story, like with Ethan's partner. Watching Ally and Ethan grow and find love left me smiling. These two are perfect for each other, but man, does it ever take them awhile to get to that point and see things from the same point of view. These two have made appearances in earlier books in the series, and it's always neat to peek a little more at who they are and what they're all about when they get their own story. I'm super excited for more in this series, especially a certain couple who always has a little fun in the background. I love seeing updates on other characters because they're still a part of the story, but the focus isn't on them. It's like visiting with old friends and catching up. Kylie's stories are a pleasure to read, because she's got a quirky style with her characters, while full of humor, there are plenty of real life things and feelings dealt with in her books. She writes dynamic characters that bring on a full range of feelings while reading about them. Ready for the next one!

Ally Bloom and Ethan Case are a match made in heaven, but she's determined to concentrate on loving herself before she can even think about loving someone else. Ethan has always wanted just one thing; a family of his own and that's just what Ally secretly longs for too. This is a well written and upbeat storyline that was entertaining as well as engaging because how could you not love these two characters whose chemistry is off the charts, but their communication sometimes leaves a lot to be desired. Men are from Mars and women are from Venus, but once Ally and Ethan get on the same page, that's when the magic happens. I read a complimentary copy of this book and all opinions expressed in my unsolicited and voluntary review are completely my own.

Kylie Gilmore's newest book, Mess With Me is another great addition to the Happy Endings Book Club. Ethan Chase gets his turn at love when he meets up with Ally Bloom at her college reunion. Ally is upset after realizing that her ex boyfriend isn't looking for the same thing as she is. Ally decides to start focusing on herself and not worry about finding Mr. Right, but Ethan has other plans. Ms. Gilmore gives us another fun filled romance that is stand alone, but lets you catch up on the characters from the other Happy Endings Book Club books. Another must read in this great series.

ETHAN!!!!!! I LOVED Ethan. He’s so refreshingly different from so many heroes these days in that he is NOT the typical “I’m a playboy and ain’t no one gonna tie me down,” but rather “I am ready and really wanting someone to settle down and spend my life with.” Oh and he’s a hot cop. So...yay Ethan!!! Ally was a riot! I liked that she didn’t mind dirty humor and that she made a hardcore effort to care for herself first after suffering heartbreak. This series is so fun to read, and OH MY GOSH I can’t wait for Josh and Hailey’s story! I’ve been given bits and pieces throughout the series, and things just got REALLY interesting!!! (I received a copy of this book in consideration of an honest review)

Ally throws herself into everything, including a chance with her ex and then being independent. She may throw herself in way too far and forgets about finding balance in life to the point of annoyance. Ethan does everything, words and actions, to prove how much he cares, but she continue to push him away. Ethan is wonderful but also hurting and feeling like he is missing out on love in his life. Any love. I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.

WOW!! Mess With Me is another amazing story written by Kylie Gilmore the sixth, in her Happy Endings Book Club series. I really don’t know how Ms. Gilmore does it. Kylie's books tend to grab me, not letting go until I turn the last page, and leaving, me wanting more. I could so relate to heroine Ally, a school teacher with a big heart who throws her entire self into anything she does and has been unlucky in love. It was like reading about me when I was that age. Cop Ethan, a foster child who hung around with the Campbells, might appear gruff and tough but he was a teddy bear inside. He just wanted someone to love him. Once he meets Ally, he knows she’s the one but needs time to convince relationship shy Ally that he’s the real deal. Ms. Gilmore is a wonderful story teller and wrote a wonderful tale in this book. Her characters are relatable, her writing witty and sometimes downright comical. I totally enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down. I highly recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

One thing about the Happy Endings Book Club series is you always get a cute premise and conflict, and Mess With Me does not disappoint. Ethan is darling as he pursues Ally, putting up with her "I'm staying single and going to force myself to love it," shenanigans. Definitely a hero who loves the chase, he falls deeper and deeper while trying to figure out a way around all the road blocks. Fun, witty, adorable. A good addition to the series.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. Ally and Ethan are the the couple featured in this story which is #6 in the series. Though this story easily stands alone. I really loved their story. Both characters are very lonely and just want to find someone to love. Ethan and Ally only know each other because they have seen the other around the bar and they really only get to know each other when Ethan takes his partner (he is a cop) to her college reunion. Ally went to the same college and she wants to reunite with her ex boyfriend, Dean. Things do not go well for Cali and Ally but Ethan is there for both of them and that’s when he starts to see Ally in a new light. Meanwhile Ally thinks he is beyond HOT! But knows he has a girlfriend. This provided a lot of fun moments where Ethan wants to date Ally and she does not realise they are dating. I LOVED Ethan. He is a man who needs some love and softness in his life and Ally is nothing except cute, perky and warmth. I loved seeing all our previous couples in this story and catching up with them. Someone gets married and I loved seeing that happen. And Ethan and Ally were so cute together. This is one of my favorite books in this series and it really was because Ally was such a fun character and heroine and Ethan is just as sweet and sexy and HOT!

Wonderful Story! In Mess With Me, Ally is stopped by a police officer for speeding. Not just any officer, officer sexy himself—Ethan! Ally knows Ethan has a partner, Cali, and is hit with guilt when she can't keep her eyes off Ethan. Now, when she finds out Cali is, literally, his 'partner'... Phew! Hot, hot, hot!!! What begins as a budding friendship, turns into so much more! I seriously don't know how Kylie keeps coming up with fresh stories that intertwine the previous couples, but she does, and she does it perfectly. I can't wait for the next one!

Quirky, fun, sweetly sexy, emotionally griping opposites attract romantic journey filled with love, passion, laughter and personal growth. These crazy fun female friends in this awesome book club are just so fun to visit each and every time. Ally Bloom is so energetic, sweet, funny and dives in full force into every thing she does. Including attending her college reunion expecting her very own second chance fairy-tail romance like the ones she reads about (only to be disappointed by her ex). Ethan Case is a strong, sexy, tough guy cop who has the hardest time expressing his love even to his chosen family. They bring out the best in each other, loved every fun gathering with friends and family.

The forecast is perfect for a total eclipse of the heart. Mess With Me has everything I've come to expect from Kylie Gilmore. Charming characters, hysterical antics and a whole lot of laughter pave the way to a happy ending. Second chances, surprise romances and the welcome arms of family are instrumental to a heartwarming tale of love and fun.
