A romantic comedy you can't miss! 

Amazon     iBooks     Barnes & Noble     Kobo

Another wingman bites the dust in this enemies to lovers story…

For the past year, I’ve been working my butt off to start my own coffee company on Whidbey.

A weekend in Cabo with sun, tiny bikinis, and vacation hook-ups is exactly the kind of tension relief I need.

What I don’t need is a bruised jaw, having to bribe my way out of jail, a hellion set on ruining my life, and my mother seeing a picture of my assets on "The Twitter."

Caribou Caldwell is my worst nightmare.

Unfortunately, she’s also the star of my sexiest dreams.

What happens when a small town guy becomes the focus of a million fantasies? As Erik Kelso navigates his sudden notoriety, will his feelings for Cari turn out to be anything but love?

Anything but Love is the third book in the Wingmen series, a spin off of Modern Love Stories. Like all Wingmen books, it can be read as a standalone romantic comedy.

I just couldn't resist another Wingmen novel and Daisy Prescott had me laughing out loud right from the beginning.

When an impulsive act of fun during a holiday with his brother Carter follows them home to the locally nicknamed 'Phallus Palace', it triggers a chain of events that change Erik's life. He becomes an overnight internet sensation when a photo of his butt appears on Instagram, taken during his skinny dip dive in Mexico. The photo is traced back to the only woman who caught his eye during the fateful holiday. The purple-tipped hellcat…!

Photographer, 'Cari' Caribou Caldwell meets Erik Kelso in a nightclub in Cabo, Her jealous 'fiancé' misinterprets their dancing together, so he and Erik end up exchanging blows. The result leads to them both having to bribe local police officers when their fight ends up in the street. Cari doesn't expect to see than man who broke her boyfriend Damien's nose again, but a few clicks of her camera plus a deceitful act leads her to the man she couldn't resist photographing.

Playful banter between Erik and Cari is hilarious as insults and sarcastic responses bounce between the two of them. They give in to their lustful attraction for each other, but then something will trigger a seed of doubt, sending them both in the opposite direction. They prefer to hide, rather than share personal information, believing it's the right thing to do...until they realise they can't live without each other.

The dialogue in this novel is highly entertaining, and it's not just restricted to the protagonists. Verbal ping-pong with hilarious and witty retort bounces off most pages. I love Daisy Prescott's writing as much as I adore the Whidbey Island setting. It's fun catching up on the antics of other residents who have appeared in previous books too.

Anything But Love is a standalone novel. I recommend reading about Tom 'Tom Cat' Donnely and John Day in their novels too. All are perfect Summer escapism.
