With a past more complicated than ten balls of yarn after it’s been attacked by a house full of kittens, I wasn’t looking to tangle myself in a relationship. The only thing is that Dallas, one of the Smith brothers who own the bar right next door to my bakery, has other ideas.


In the last year, I’ve learned to dodge and weave him better than a wide receiver at the Superbowl. At six-foot-five, with eyes of chocolate a girl could drown in, this was no mean feat. Then an assumption lands me in hot water and I end up asking him on a date.


What was I thinking?


One kiss and I know he’s trouble with a capital T, the kind that sensible girls run from. Thing is, he’s stolen my common sense with his wicked mouth and soft heart. It doesn’t matter to him that I’ve more curves than a Kardashian and a mouth that has no filter.


Life has taught me I can achieve anything with hard work and determination. Does this include love?


I’m about to find out.


Smith’s Corner (book one) Dallas & Delilah, is a standalone, opposites-attract romantic comedy-drama. It comes with a hot as fuck barman who’s about to learn exactly what he’s capable of when it comes to love.

4 out of 5 (very good)

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!


Delilah is a fun, strong-willed character. I liked her straight away, from her desire to achieve her goals and being family orientated right the way to having the hots for the scrumptious Dallas.

Dallas....swoon!! Hot, protective, funny.....I could go on but you need to experience it for yourself.

As with all good books there are plenty of hurdles to overcome, misunderstandings, some 'adult' moments and danger....definitely hard to put down.


A brilliant start to what promises to be a fantastic series. This can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend it as a series....there's another four hot brothers to get to know! We meet them but, obviously, this isn't their story.

I'm Jayne or JP, I live in the Isle of Man. A tiny place in the Irish sea where all the magic happens. I am fortunate now to write full time and I've a love for books, all kinds. I like to spice things up and dip my toe into different genres. This is my first book in M/F romance in Smith's Corner.
