‘Here’s what I know: Agony is having a daughter who wants something that she can not have and you can not seem to give it to her. Agony is wanting to make sweet, angry love to a beautiful woman who is off-limits and also isn’t giving your daughter what she wants. ‘
Kayley Loring is the queen of making us laugh and swoon, as we float off into a happy bubble of book love. Our bubble of happy swooniness is inflated by the sheer love we have for Kayley and her characters. It’s fueled by laughter and love, dirty puns, and text messages. Look, you know what you’re going to get when you pick up this Author’s books as she has a formula, and if you’re a subscriber to her brand of crazy like we are, you’re going to want to read Good Vibrations, the third book in the Brodie Brothers series. If you have not read any of Kayley Loring’s books, you’re going to want to add them all to your list! We’ve loved Kayley Loring through every single one of her books now, and this love affair is a grower and a stayer.
“You were never a collection of problems that needed to be solved, Aria. You were the solution. ”
No one writes family group text messaging like Kayley Loring writes them, it makes us want them to add us to their convos, and to be fair, we text some real autocorrect corkers too, so would fit right in, without needing lube or anything! In Good Vibrations, we finally get to spend quality time with the last Brodie brother. It was both exciting and sad, as we will miss them, can we be adopted? Or we can be the crazy cousins that pop in on special occasions?
MAMA BRODIE: 👍
MAMA BRODIE: 🍆
MAMA BRODIE: 💥
MAMA BRODIE: 😉
MILES: I’m not comfortable with this.
MAMA BRODIE: Oh heavens, Miles! You still need to lighten up.
So, Miles is the older broody and sarcastic brother, the divorced entertainment lawyer, dad of a young precocious daughter, Macy. They’re two peas in a pod really, in some ways, each very serious and determined. Both needing to let go, have fun, and follow their hearts desire, which for Macy is getting the role of Alice in Wonderland, and for Miles, the surfer girl he just can not forget or let go of. Miles is kind and passionate in his very own unique way. His own brand of protective loyalty manifesting into the most wonderful gestures and situations that are pure comedy gold.
“Ever since we met on the beach, you’re all I see when I close my eyes.”
Laid-back and Serious meeting on a beach – TEASING – First came ‘pants in socks’ – Then came ‘perky peach’ – Then came three years of sexual misery. Miles has had it bad for Aria for years and when he finally gets an ‘in’ he really gets right in there! As for Aria, well she could not be more adorable if she tried. She’s fun, feisty, and fearless, and she fancies Mr Broodie right back. Then lo and behold they’re brought together three years later when a young and exuberant Macy, auditions for the Alice in Wonderland adaptation which Aria wrote. Chaos ensues because how do you tell the man you fancy that his daughter can not sing or dance? They say opposites attract and that sure is the case here! The intense chemistry and romance and the witty shenanigans had us giggling and melting in equal measure.
“I would love to be a part of your family. I’m ready. ”
He grins and shakes his head. “You think it’s just another group of text convo, but it’s one of the biggest and most confusing commitments you’ll ever make in your life.”
Kayley Loring is our go-to Author when life gets too serious when our reading mood dictates laughs, swoony love, and pure unadulterated happiness. She’s our comfort blanket, our very own happy pill when we’re feeling blue… minus the cheese! A brilliant writer, a queen of banter, swoon, and comedic timing, she never fails to deliver. Long may she reign!
‘Aw, fuck. I’m in love. Now what? ‘
