The Other C-Word The Other F-Word Review Tour @MKSchiller

The Other Words Series

These are full length contemporary romance books with humor and a deep storyline.
Meet Marley, Billie, Stevie and Emmie – 4 funny girls, one quirky family. So pull up a chair, have some vegan ice cream and dish with us.

Can she overcome her consuming desire for him? Can he make her comfortable with the other C-word…commitment?

Marley Mason is dreading the arrival of the new business consultant. After all, this man will most likely outsource her job to China. The last thing she would expect is a case of mistaken identity, leading to false accusations of kidnapping when she attempts to pick up the wrong man at the airport, or worse…that she would have such a visceral reaction to the right man.

Rick Randy is super sexy, scandalously flirty, and perfect masturbation material, but a relationship is out of the question. Rick is contracted on a temporary basis to fix Marley’s ailing company, and then pull out, although as he expresses to Marley, pulling out is difficult for him, in more ways than one! Marley’s feelings range from utter confusion to intense contemplation as Rick charms his way into her life. All of those C-words Marley can control, but it’s the other C-word she fears—commitment.

Blog Review from Stacia at Three Girls and a Book Obsession
You had me at "R U Randy"!!
I swear I literally laughed out loud throughout this book- between the banter with Marley and her sisters, to her smart ass comments, to most conversations between her and Rick I, I don't know that a book has ever been this comical.
Aside from that, it was also emotional, addicting, and sexy as hell.
I hope to read more from this author :)

The Other C-Word will be 99 cents from April 11th to April 18th on Amazon, Are, and Totally Bound’s site.

Review from ParaSuperNormalism's Shy Girl - 5 STARS
R U RANDY? Well are you? Sent by her boss’ wicked assistant to pick up the new specialist that is sure to fire her, Marley is expecting an old grouch. Queue Richard Randy (you read that right, Dick Randy), as he saves Marley from embarrassing herself any further at the airport. As it turns out, Rick is a very young, very handsome, and an HR incident waiting to happen. He is only here to fix the company, and then he will be gone. Marley knows this and isn’t going to let him cause any problems in her current sex rotation. She has three guys who are on speed dial under booty call. No strings just flings, is Marley’s motto. When the sexual tension rises, as Marley now works under Rick as his assistant, so do the stakes. Marley is happy to add Rick to her rotation for the remaining time he is there. But what happens when Rick wants more than just sex? Marley is hiding a secret or two that could change everything. Not willing to have strings, even when she knows that Rick loves her, she lets him go. But when Marley needs Rick the most, he is there to help. Can Marley open her heart and accept the other C-Word with Rick? Is she ready for a commitment? This is a great book that I read in one sitting. I couldn’t put it down, the characters speak to the reader, and you can feel their pain, hurt and love. I was a fan of Schiller before, but now, I will buy anything she writes. Grab this one, I promise you won’t regret it.

This is book two in the In Other Words series.

Damien Wolfe is ferociously sexy. Emmie Mason is fastidiously stubborn. When fate brings them together, they are both challenged by the other F-word…forever.

Fashionable forty-four-year-old, Emmie Mason is content with her fastidious life. She has everything she needs in her loving family and friends. Her eldest daughter, Marley, has married the man of her dreams, and she has a new grandchild. What more could a woman ask for?

She isn’t prepared for fate to slap her in the face in the form of a bridal bouquet. Or worse, to run into the fantasy-inducing, eye-catching, panty-dropping, swoon-worthy man she’s been thinking about for over a year, even though they only danced together once.

As it turns out, thirty-year-old real estate mogul Damien Wolfe has been thinking about her too. Damien’s flirty, funny and forthright personality challenges Emmie and tilts her world. But it’s his kind soul and compassionate demeanor that really frighten her.

He’s easy to fall for, but how could she ever recover if she risked her heart to him? Can they both overcome their fears and commit to that other F-word…Forever?

Blog Review
Once in a while I come across a book that has me fist pumping excited so much that before it’s even released I’m telling all my friend they HAVE to read it. The Other F-Word is one of those books. I LOVED IT! From the characters to the story line, my brain was checking marking every box of what I require in a book. Great characters – Check. Witty dialog – Check. Sweet romance – check. Build up to a one heck of a HEA – Check. Great sex scenes – CHECK!!! Let me extrapolate.

Emmie and her family. Filled with vibrancy, sibling rivalry and quirky 'relatives' (blood or not) Emmie's family felt as real as they come. These are people I could and would want to hang out with. In case you missed it, there are a LOT of characters. Each and every one of have an added importance to the story-line.

Emmie/Jessie and Damien - Cougar and Wolf. Her double name is a funny story in itself. Serious, what wasn’t there to love of these two interacting together. Damien certainly wasn’t what I was expecting. Nowadays, when a book has a ‘rich’ guy in, I’m thinking he’s going to come off all Alpha and dominate the woman. Not so here. Instead I found Damien to be warm, caring and very down to earth. The teasing as friends leading to lover felt so natural. Nothing seemed rushed in this perfectly paced book. The combination of playful and serious moments had me sighing and giggling thorough the whole book. I’m thinking back now about certain parts and smiling all over again.

I truly did expect a different kind of book from the title The Other F-Word. Something nasty and wicked. Instead, I discovered a wonderful book that had me laughing, crying and a family that I would love to be adopted into. If you’re ready to take a break from all the YA and NA books that have flooded the book market, then read The Other F-Word by M.K. Schiller. You most certainly will not be disappointed.

Dish - This is the best book I have read this year.

Review by ParaSuperNormalism's Shy Girl - 5 STARS
I can’t tell you how happy I was to find out this is a sequel to The Other C-Word. In this book, we are introduced in more depth, to Marley’s mother Emmie. She is the true definition of MILF and cougar. In this book, we follow Emmie through her new-found freedom. Two daughters have married and moved out, and the youngest is away at college. After escaping the wedding of her daughter Marley, Emmie is reintroduced to Damien Wolfe. He is young, hot and rich, and he’s met Emmie before. Only the first time he met her, she told him her name was Jessie. Fourteen months later, Jessie is all Damien Wolfe wants. But will he settle for Emmie Mason, Mother of 3 daughters and 3 “adopted” sons? Emmie fights Damien at every turn, but knows that she is happy with him. But when the Other F-word is dropped on her will she be able to take what Fate gives her? When the truth behind Damien’s wants come to light, Emmie runs as fast as she can, because she knows she can’t fulfill those wants. Knowing that Emmie doesn’t want the future he does, Damien leaves Emmie. Brought back together by unforeseen circumstances, is Damien willing to forget the future he wants in order to keep Emmie. Or will Emmie have a change of heart and a change of her future. This may be considered a sequel, but it can be read as a standalone. I didn’t think I could love anyone more than Rick Randy, Damien Wolfe showed me who was boss, and I love it! You get to experience all the characters from the first installment, but follow the path of a love that was meant to be. I hope there are more books that follow this funky family. This book is hot, and should be on everyone’s TBR.

will be on Amazon and in print on April 11th

Available now from Totally Bound here.

I am a hopeless romantic in a hopelessly pragmatic world. I have a full time life and two busy teenagers, but in the dark of night, I sit by the warm glow of my computer monitor, and attempt to conjure up passionate heartwarming stories with plenty of humor.

I started imagining stories in my head at a very young age. In fact, I got so good at it that friends asked me to create plots featuring them as the heroine and the object of their affection as the hero. We'd spend hours on the phone while I came up with a series of unrealistic, yet tender events, which led to a satisfying conclusion. You've heard of fan fiction... this was friend fiction.

Even with that, it took many years to realize I could produce an actual full-length book that readers would enjoy. I try to make my stories humorous, realistic, with flawed but redeeming characters. I hope you enjoy my stories and always find The Happily Ever After in every endeavor.

“Wasn’t it an amazing night?” “Not yet, but I think it could be,” a deep, gravelly voice answered, causing my throat to go dry despite the copious amounts of liquor I’d consumed. Shit. This was a huge hotel with multiple functions. Why hadn’t I checked before hopping into the car like I owned it? “I’m in the wrong limo,” I said, scooting toward the door. He clasped my arm. “Or maybe you’re in the right one.” My flesh broke out into goosebumps from the contact of his skin against mine. What was going on? This was the reaction of a shy school girl, not a confident woman like myself. “I’m sorry. I have to go.” “Wait.” There was a command in that voice that I didn’t question. I halted right away. “I believe this is yours,” he said, handing me the bouquet. I cursed the flowers because their sweet scent masked his masculine, intoxicating one. “Yes, thank you.” “Tell me I’m not too late.” “I don’t follow.”“Are you the bride or did you catch this?” “Neither. It sort of slapped me in the face.” He chuckled—a deep and hearty laugh. “Maybe it’s fate’s way of telling you something.” “Or maybe I just have bad reflexes,” I said, realizing my ragged breathing and shaky hands gave away my feelings. I pulled the door handle several times. It wouldn’t release. Then I heard the click. “I’ll let you escape, if that’s what you want.” I almost toppled out of the door, but managed to catch myself. The overhead lights came on and I paused, much longer than acceptable, drinking in the sight of him. His deep voice turned me on, but his face was the stuff of orgasmic fantasies. He looked familiar, like maybe he’d already trespassed into my dreams, although I couldn’t place him. He nodded, looking completely composed in a dark, tailored suit and with a wry smile. He had all the ingredients for a delicious recipe—Ashton Kutcher’s sultry lips, Robert Pattison’s thick eyebrows, Mario Lopez’s jet black hair and Jason Statham’s broad chest. His hazel eyes were all his own though. They were so unique, the color falling somewhere between golden sun and forest floor. I was grateful for the bouquet for the first time that night, because I needed it to fan myself. “Good bye,” I said. “Or maybe it’s hello…again,” he whispered, before I closed the door. Again?
