Check out Miranda Elaine's latest.. OVERDUE

Overdue, a swoonworthy best friend to lovers, standalone romance from Miranda Elaine is available now!

Growing up, Griffin Thorne was the most annoying, adorable, and infuriating boy I’d ever met. I told myself I wanted nothing to do with him, but no matter how much I tried to hate him, that crazy boy somehow became my best friend.

As teenagers, we were inseparable. Despite the high school rumors, we never crossed any lines. Friends forever. That was our motto.

Griffin grew up to become a smoking hot firefighter and I got my dream job as the town librarian. Life was perfect. However, when tragedy strikes and we’re forced to move in together, our friendship is put to the biggest test yet.

Do I risk everything for the chance at an epic love? If I follow my heart, I could lose my best friend. But if it works, we could finally get our very own Happily Ever After.

Overdue by Miranda Elaine was a cute story about childhood best friends who each harbored feelings for the other that were more than friendship.  Unfortunately both Griffin and Leni held back from telling the other their true feelings for fear of losing the friendship that was that most important thing to both of them, being in each other's lives.  

Leni is a librarian who is much more comfortable sitting in the corner reading a book while Griffin is an outgoing firefighter, but somehow the two balance each other out and are best friends with lives so intertwined to the outsider you would think they were a couple.

When Leni faces a tragedy that brings all of her fears of losing those she loves right to the surface, Griffin is there to support her in every way that he can, and hopefully Leni will be able to see that being with Griffin in a romantic sense won't mean the end of their friendship but the beginning of something even better.

And we can't forget about Grandma Helen.  Helen brings a comic relief to the story that has the reader laughing out loud at her antics, as sometimes she acts younger than Leni herself.  Helen sees the love that Griffin and Leni have for each other and meddles in that cute grandma way to push them both to take the leap they are both holding back from.

It doesn’t take long to get to Jack’s place. Griffin and he have been working together for years. Jack has always been the biggest flirt and serial dater up until he met Shelby. But in the span of the eighteen months, he met her, got married in Vegas, and had a kid.
It was a quick courtship.
Shelby works as an interior designer on the island. She fixes up huge houses for the rich people who will only use them for a couple of months a year. The cookout this weekend was her idea since starting Monday she’s finally back at work since having their baby, Ava, two months ago. She doesn’t really have any coworkers other than her assistant, Sarah, so Jack invited all the other firefighters and their families over too.
We park on the street along with a half dozen other trucks and a few minivans from the family men. He’s out of the truck and over on my side before I can even get my things together.
“Hand it over,” he demands, his palm up waiting for me to comply.
I play dumb, wide eyes and innocence on my face. “What are you talking about?” I climb down the too big truck, trying desperately not to fall over . . . again.
“The book that’s hiding in your bag, Leni.” He points to the tote bag hanging to my side. “Come on now, give it to me. Easiest way for you not to give in to the desire to hide and read is to remove the temptation.”
“I left my book at home. Remember, you saw me set it down.” I play dumb.
“I’ve known you since we were nine. If you think I don’t know that you have a backup book in that bag, then you’re dead wrong.”
“Ugh!” I sigh dramatically as I pull out my well-loved copy of Emma and place it in his hand. He gently tosses it onto my seat, and I smack his shoulder as he does. He knows better than to throw around my books.
“Great, now the Kindle.” His voice is stern, and I know he means it.
“Seriously? Griffin, this is not cool. I’m a grown woman. I can go a few hours without reading.”
“Sure, you can. But I know you’ll get overwhelmed by the chaos that is definitely happening in there and you’ll retreat to a quiet corner.” He leans in close enough to me that I can smell his subtle cologne and shoves his hand deep into the tote, pulling my Kindle out in one fast swipe.
“Don’t you firefighters take obeying the law seriously?” I snark at him. “Seems to me you’re stealing my possessions and my lifeline.”
“Sue me. Hell, march downtown and file a report with any cop there. Good luck getting them to pursue it. I think they have much bigger fish to fry than me holding onto your electronics while we are at a social gathering. Don’t you think?”
“Grrr,” I growl at him before stomping off toward the gate with him on my heels. Before I can even acknowledge what is happening, he’s caught up to me and has me caged between him and the gate. I work hard to steady my breath, refusing to let him see how his closeness affects me. I feel his hand slide into the back pocket of my overalls. As quick as it’s there, it’s gone, along with my cell phone. The backup to my backup plan.
“I told you, Leni, I know you. You can have this with your Kindle app back on the way home!” he yells out to me as I let the gate behind me slam in front of him.
With a huff, I turn, open the gate, and storm angrily through it. Caught in a fit of laughter, he stands there watching me leave him behind. With the loud sound of the metal gate slamming behind me mixed with the booming laughter coming from Griffin, the party seems to come to a complete standstill.
Great . . . everyone is looking my way and my first instinct is to turn and run. But to prove to him I can do this, I stand tall, throw my long red hair over my shoulder, and march myself over to Shelby.

What a way to start a series. Yes, start.  This is my first read by Nelle L'Amour and now I simply MUST go back and start from the beginning, even though this can TOTALLY be standalone, you won't want it to be.  I laughed so hard I thought I was gonna pee my pants. I may have even teared up lol.
And Scout.. with the addition of a dog this story goes above and beyond the already fantastic read it was, to uproariously funny.
Blake and his Tiger are fantastic characters. I can't say enough about how good the writing is.  I'm telling you. It's a must read if you like em fun, funny, sexy, and sweet.
Definitely a 5 star read from me!
Read the excerpt below... seriously!

  Excerpt: My high-powered wife was so cute when she was in domestic mode. But she was even cuter when she was on the floor under me. “Put everything down, Jen. It can wait. And besides, I’m still ravenous.” She set her plate back down on the table. “Do you want more? Should I heat up the soup?” I silently chortled. Yeah, I wanted more, but not another slab of brisket. Or some fluffy matzo balls. When it came to my wife, I had my own set of big balls and a very hearty appetite. My cock twitched and a new little plan of attack formulated in my head. “On second thought, baby, let’s put things away and call it a night.” “Sure. That works for me. I’m beat!” With a hidden smile, I placed my fork and knife on my plate, but as I was about to hand them to her, the utensils “accidentally” fell onto the floor. As I bent over to pick them up, I groaned in pain. “Aagh! My back! I think I pulled a muscle!” Alarm filled my tiger’s glittering emerald eyes as I silently snickered. I was such a good actor. Seriously, I deserved an award. “Oh my God, Blake! Don’t move! I’ll pick them up.” She leaped up from her seat and rounded the table to retrieve the utensils, squatting down just as I anticipated. Perfection! I sprung up from my chair, my cock springing up with me, and joined my wife on the floor, kneeling behind her. “Blake! What are you doing?” “Get down on your hands and knees,” I ordered. Obediently, without a word, she did as she was told, her gorgeous heart-shaped ass high in the air. Not wasting a second, I yanked down her boxer shorts and managed to slide them past her ankles. Then, I curled a finger under her, caressing her tender swells until they were all slick and wet. “Oh God, Blake,” she moaned as I moved my finger to her clit, rubbing it vigorously. She moaned again, arching her back like a stretching cat. She was ready. I was ready… to pummel my pussy from behind. Doggy style! Planting my hands on the floor on either side of her narrow hips, I spread her legs and then wedged Mr. Burns inside her. My big, thick cock slid in with ease, taking her to the hilt, and then I began to pound her. Pumping in and out harder and faster as she met my thrusts. More moans. Whimpers. Pants. And grunts on my part. It was an intense wordless fuck. Truthfully, most of them were like that. I’d read some of the steamy romance novels that Jen had made into movies and could never understand all the banter that transpired between the amorous couples during their most intimate times. Hell, I couldn’t even think straight let alone get coherent words out. At most some garbled dirty talk. Three letter Boggle words limited to “hot,” “wet,” and “yes.” A few expletives and then, “Come for me, tiger.” Or, “Baby, I’m gonna come!” And boy, was I. It was a little premature for me, but who knew what effect tonight’s traumatic events and jet lag had on me. I was ready to let go. Explode! With one more forceful thrust and a feral grunt, I emptied inside her, feeling my tiger’s own explosive orgasm chasing mine. As she combusted around me, she roared out my name, so loudly the Highlanders we’d met in Scotland likely heard her. I gripped her abdomen before she sank to the floor. Still folded over, she exhaled a loud breath and then muttered: “Blake, we need to get a dog.”
