Chemistry of a Kiss! Sweet YA Romance

I"m happy to announce that Book #5 in the Sweet Water High Series is here!





Guys, I had so much fun discovering Harper Tisdale, her unique family dynamic, and her complicated feelings for Jett Bryant, a guy who's been in her life since she kissed him on the playground back in kindergarten.
These two have great chemistry, even if she squirms a little over having to be his partner in her Marriage and Relationships class. Especially once she discovers their research topic: The Chemistry of a Kiss.
There's flirtation and tension and the promise of something more. A dynamic complicated by the fact that she's dating bad boy, TJ Reynolds.
Of course, life's never perfect; I remember sifting through my own issues of insecurity and difficulty over my parent's separation and divorce. I'm a sucker for bonding moments that make me believe that my characters are truly falling in love; they're are often my favorite scenes to write. You'll find those, as well as some tender, age-appropriate kisses in this sweet romance novel.
I really hope you enjoy CHEMISTRY OF A KISS.



How did I end up in a fake relationship with the gorgeous captain of the basketball team, Jett Bryant? Where do I start?
Back in kindergarten, I used to dream about kissing that adorable brown-eyed boy. He was also the pastor’s son but that didn’t stop me from chasing him down, tackling him on the playground, and kissing him smack on the lips.
Then in eighth grade, I was about to kiss him for real (as real as a spin the bottle kiss could get) but Jett ruined it by telling everyone about the playground kiss so I kissed some guy named James instead.
Fast-forward to our senior year where Jett and I got partnered in Marriage and Relations class and were asked to research—of all things—The Chemistry of a Kiss. It had me thinking about those yummy lips of his a little, but I kept my focus strong since I was dating TJ Reynolds, one of Sweet Water’s most misunderstood bad boys and lead singer of Grungetown. But somewhere along the way, TJ got jealous and kissed Jett’s vicious ex-girlfriend and that’s how he became my ex and that’s when the whole fake relationship idea started in the first place.
The trouble is, all the feelings I had for Jett over the years came pouring back as we spent time together, and our topic wasn’t helping the situation one bit. Neither were the incredible kisses he gave me as we “pretended” to like each other. Things really get complicated when Jett starts cozying up to me when nobody’s around to witness it. Maybe this whole fake relationship is turning into the real thing. But how can I be sure?


EXCERPT

“So you’re so confident, are you? About your kissing ability?”
A triumphant grin spread over his face. “Yes.”
“How? How can you be sure?” I don’t know why, but suddenly I started to feel like I needed space so I scooted my chair back a foot or two. It didn’t feel like such a weird thing to do until Jett stared down at the space between us with a furrowed brow.
Slowly then, he pulled away from the back of the chair, leaned forward to drop his elbows to his knees, and squared a good, hard look at me. “That’s a good question.”
A blast of firecracker-heat flared in my chest. Just where was he going with this? But then every fiber in me threatened to go limp as I realized exactly where he was going with it.
“How about we let you be the judge.”

Small Town Romance in Cobble Creek!

I'm happy to announce my Cobble Creek Small Town Romance Collection!



I really enjoyed discovering the small town of Cobble Creek and the charming folks who live there. The Sheriff's Bride took my emotions by storm as I wrote of Sheriff Trent Lockheart's story and the way Jessie was able to help him heal. Plus, these two had a whole lot of sparks!

Bear the Lumberjack was such a great character as well with a passion for his career and of course Maddie, the woman he's falling in love with. Maddie has a bad past to work out, something that's complicated by her man-hating mother and gunshy sister, but if anyone can prove that there are good men left in the world, Bear Schaefer can. The sparks continue with this couple as well.

And lastly, we have Anthony Marino, the handsome owner of Tony's Diner who rocks a man bun like Bandarez, according to Kira. In this story, Kira feels she has a lot to prove, and I loved discovering what that journey looked like for her. Anthony has to let go of his own fears in order to help her grow, which was far from easy after all that he's been through. This one, too, as plenty of romantic sparks!
I hope you'll enjoy these three romances as much as I enjoyed writing them.



Enjoy three small-town romance novels set in the lovely town of Cobble Creek.
The Sheriff's Bride: Trent Lockheart might be the new sheriff in town, but he can’t stop Jessie Jean from stealing his heart.
Sheriff Trent Lockheart knew he’d be in for a challenge when he moved from the big city and a large police force to the small Wyoming town of Cobble Creek. But at least he’d be able to stick to his bachelor ways without temptation. So he thought. Cobble Creek isn’t overflowing with young, single ladies, but Jessie Jean—the gorgeous brunette who runs the Country Quilt Inn—proves more tempting than any woman he’s known.
Jessie doesn’t care much for the new sheriff in town. After an explosive first meeting that almost ends in Jessie’s arrest, she’s even more determined to plan on dinner for one for the rest of her life. Sure, the new sheriff is seriously attractive, and after a second, much less dangerous run-in, he might not be that bad, but Jessie has no plan to marry, date, or even let a man into her life. Still, as the days pass, Trent’s surprising charm works past Jessie’s determination, and she finds promise in their budding relationship.
After opening up about the difficulties in her past, Jessie finds that Trent is guarding a dark tragedy of his own, one that might threaten their chance at a future together.

The Lumberjack's Yuletide Bride: Maddie Collins, first-grade teacher at Cobble Creek Elementary, is not a man-hater. Sure, her absent father gave men a bad name, and her mother always warned her that high hopes were dangerous things, but Maddie still hopes to find a man who’ll return the love she has to offer. When lumberjack, Bear Schaefer takes an interest in her, Maddie allows her hopes to soar above the treetops.
Bear Schaefer, aka poster boy for Big Daddy Mills, has been dying to get back to Cobble Creek. As part owner and operator of an environmentally proactive logging company, he has a list of things vying for his attention. But none are quite so alluring as the lovely Maddie Collins. Date after date their connection grows deeper while the sparks grow hotter. Yet just as things become serious between them, a vengeful woman from Bear’s past threatens to tear them apart. With Maddie’s hopes for love so high, and Bear’s love so deep, a fall would be more devastating than a forest fire.

The Snapshot Bride: Love is in the air in Cobble Creek—for everyone but Anthony Marino. Month after month the owner of Tony’s Diner watches happy couples stroll through that bell-chiming door, and he can’t help but wonder if it will ever be him. The winds shift drastically in his favor when Kira Moretti rings that very same bell. During a childhood visit to Cobble Creek, the outgoing girl pegged him with his first kiss. When she sets those brown eyes on him years later, he’s pleased to find the feelings are still there. But is Kira here to stay, or does she—like the other women in Anthony’s past—have her eyes set on a different life?
It’s no surprise that Kira Moretti has an imperfect past that soiled the family name. So when Grandpa Moretti leaves his Cobble Creek photography studio to her in his will, Kira’s determined to prove herself worthy. Cobble Creek is just as charming as she remembered, and even better—so is the handsome guy from Tony’s Diner. Chemistry between them sparks fast, and soon Kira’s certain she’s right where she needs to be. But when someone from her past shows, offering long-sought redemption, Kira has to make a choice. Stay with the man she’s just fallen in love with, or take the offer and risk losing him forever.

Her TV Bachelor Fake Fiancé

I am just so so happy about sharing this new release with you! I've always wanted to write a TV bachelor themed book, and I have to say, it was so much fun!

I can't wait for you to read about Canyon Byer. He's been deemed shallow by some audience members, but you'll discover just what caused the pharmaceutical rep turned model to hide parts of who he is.

And Cambria! She has not had an easy go at life, but she is strong and resilient and kind enough to give Canyon another chance after he offended her on the show.

Their romance is tender, and enhanced by honest hurts and vulnerabilities from their past that deepen their connection and eventually allow them to trust each other more.

I sincerely hope you guys will enjoy this one!
You can read the blurb below.

Weeks into filming the reality TV show, Canyon earns the title of America’s Shallow Bachelor for sending home the audience’s favorites. As the finale draws near, he needs a shot at redemption, but in order to get it, America’s favorite bachelorette—the same woman Canyon wishes he hadn’t wronged—will have to give him a second chance.

While Cambria Wilson sits among family and friends during finale night, mixed feelings fight for a place in her heart. Sure, she and Canyon shared a very memorable kiss and she’d even been falling for him until she realized what a jerk he was, but that doesn’t explain the strange sadness that looms as she waits to see which of the finalists he’ll propose to.

In a surprise twist during the final episode, Cambria learns that Canyon’s not going to propose to either of the bachelorettes left on the show. In fact, he’s about to appear on the doorstep of a woman he hopes to win back—all on live TV.

The bachelorette will be asked to join Canyon on a two-week winter wonderland getaway.

The Fearless Warrior: Navy SEAL Romance Series 2.0

Who's ready for Jace's story?



Hey guys!

Release day for The Fearless Warrior is here at last!

I'm really hoping to hit a personal goal with this new release, and that is to break into Amazon's top 100 in Kindle Sales by the end of the day! If you'd like to see how my rankings are coming along, feel free to go here, then scroll down to product details.

You'll see things like File Size, Publication Date, and a list of other things. But at the bottom of those options you'll find Amazon Best Sellers Rank. (In this case, we want the numbers low—under 100 low!)



Now, onto the book.



I had so much fun getting to know Jace and Amy, the lead characters from The Fearless Warrior, and I can't wait for you guys to get to know them too.

I really think you'll enjoy their love story! We've got sweet flirtation and playful banter. Late-night kisses and hopes for a promising future. But woven through each scene is the threat over Amy's head, and Jace will do anything to keep her safe.

The book blurb is pasted below. And remember to check those rankings and see how we did. I say we because without readers like you they wouldn't go very far!

Hope you're all having a great week!

The Fearless Warrior by Kimberly Krey
When Jace moves in with Amy to protect her from a predator, romance blooms, and Amy wonders who will protect her heart.

Denver’s Average Amy does TV reviews for the latest trends, but when her name ends up on a human trafficking website, life feels anything but average. Especially when old crush turned hot Navy SEAL Jace Burns shows up at her door offering protection. Protection from who? What? And did she already mention hot?

Jace Burns is known for his fearless nature. He’s risked his life overseas, endured time as a prisoner of war, and was even presumed dead. Too bad all that goes out the window when he comes face to face with Amy Nelson. He hadn’t paid close attention to her in high school but he’s paying attention now.

While romantic sparks fly and the danger begins to grow, one question fills Amy’s mind: Are Jace’s feelings real, or is he using her to help take down the threat? 99¢ for a limited time.

Celebrating Second Chances, 3 in 1

It's Release Day!
Is the Second Chances Series new to you?



So I'm a big believer in love, forgiveness, and second chances. While writing Rough Edges, Mending Hearts, and Fresh Starts, I made a big space in my heart for these characters. Braden and his struggle to move beyond the past. Allie as she navigates life as a divorced and dating mother of teen daughters. I enjoyed Logan and Candice's story and felt myself rooting for them to move beyond their hardships and appreciate what they had in one another. And of course Bree, who falls for Greyson despite her objection to liking a guy she had pegged all wrong while running from a stalker, no less!

If you haven't read this series, now is a great time to start. Get all three books (separately released prior to today) in one set for just 5.75 or read them free in KU.

For those new to these stories, I hope you'll enjoy them and find yourself rooting for these couples as well!
If you have read & enjoyed it, I could sure use your Amazon review. (Just a few words about how you liked the series will do.)
Happy Romance Reading, all!

Hope you're having a wonderful week!

~ Kimberly Krey

To help refresh your memory, I'll post blurbs for each book below. To start, here's one for the set:
Second Chances Series:
In this three-book clean romance series, follow three couples under very different circumstances as they're given a second chance at romance. From an old high school crush, a broken marriage, and the one who got away, enjoy stories that feature the mystery of chemistry, the excitement of romance, and the conquering power of love! Novels included are: Rough Edges, Mending Hearts, and Fresh Starts.

Rough Edges:
Divorced mother, Allie Emerson, never imagined she’d be raising two teenage girls on her own. Between parenting and paying the bills, she hasn’t even thought about meeting a man. That changes once she hears local carpenter, Braden Fox, is in need of a secretary. Back in high school, Allie had done all she could to deny the sparks burning between her and Braden; but would the chemistry still be there after all this time?

Braden has heard all about what Terrance did to Allie and the girls, has been planning to stop by and see how she’s getting along, but Allie beats him to it by showing up at his shop in search of a job. Her unexpected visit reignites the old flame Braden used to torch for her; trouble is, old feelings of resentment return as well. Allie did choose Terrance over him, after all. And as much as Braden wants Allie in his life, he’s not sure he can open his heart to her again.

With this second chance at romance, will the bumps in their relationship be too much to get over, or will this carpenter learn to smooth out the past?

Mending Hearts:
A couple on the verge of divorce gives their marriage one last try. Will they be able to get past the issues holding them back? "A heart-warming romance," Jamie Brook Thompson
Candice is through with married life and all it entailed: infertility, an adoption gone wrong, and the death of her husband’s twin brother. Now that they’ve been separated for nearly a year, Candice is finally ready to set Logan free. But when he steps back into her life, Candice begins to have second thoughts. Even though she hasn’t fully healed from the heartache she endured over their married years, she can't fathom the thought of losing him a second time. Can Candice let go of past hurts and give Logan a second chance, or will her fears keep them apart?

Logan has spent the months of separation giving Candice the space she needed. But when he discovers that Candice is about to file for a divorce, he decides he better take action quick. He didn’t spend the best years of his life with this woman, only to let her slip away. Yet just when the opportunity comes again – his chance to finally make things right – an entirely new force threatens to tear them apart. Will opposition keep the heart-broken couple from getting back together or will they have the strength to break through the barriers, no matter what their future might bring?

Fresh Starts:
When Bree’s stalker is released from prison, she heads to a remote orchard to hide away. Joining her is Greyson Law, a former bodyguard who had a crush on her in their school years. Soon sparks ignite between them, and Bree feels she and Greyson might have a future. But could it all be destroyed by the stalker from her past?

After being stalked for several years, Bree Fox helped put her stalker behind bars. But now the time has come for his release. To test the stalker-infested waters, her brother, Braden, purchased an orchard house where Bree can hide away. And though she must leave her kids with her ex-husband for a time, Bree feels certain the plan will keep her family safe. She only wishes Braden hadn’t hired his friend and former bodyguard, Greyson Law, to watch over her.

After leaving his training center in capable hands, Greyson is back in his hometown to stay. So when Braden Fox asks for a favor, the timing is just right. Plus, working as a personal protector once more has an appeal all its own. Trouble is, Bree Fox never liked him much back in school, and he hasn’t seen the woman much since. Still, just thinking about the hard-to-get girl from his school days has Greyson wondering if the timing is right in more ways than one. But just how dangerous is this man from her past?
