Dating is certainly not on her agenda. For all she cares, the town gossips of Redwood Ridge, Oregon, ...more
Kelly Moran takes her readers back to Redwood Ridge, with New Tricks and we finally get widower Drake O’Grady’s story.
I won’t lie, I have been itching to get my hands on Drake’s story since we were introduced to him and his brothers in Puppy Love, having devoured the previous two books and absolutely adored the stories that his brothers Cade and Flynn were given I was interested to see how Kelly would play his story out.

New Tricks by Kelly Moran is a beautifully written, heartwarming friends to lovers romance and I loved it.
This was one of those books once you start reading you can't put down.
The plot is well done, the pacing spot on and the characters were likable, easily relatable and I loved them together.
Watching Drake and Zoe's relationship move from best friends to lovers was entertaining and also painful.
Zoe had so much going on in her life she was scared of opening her heart to Dr ...more

I recommend this story , the whole series to Everyone!!!
I loved both Zoe and Drake! She was fierce, feisty, and opinionated...and had some amazing one-liners, and Drake was a bit broody (which I have to admit I always love haha), and he was also extremely supportive, thoughtful and super sexy. I have to admit that going into this story I was expecting a sweet romance, maybe with a bit of sex, but NEW TRICKS actually ended ...more
Zoe and Drake both lost the same person. She was his wife and her best friend. It was hard yet they stood by each other.
Heather made them promise to take care of the other after she was gone
Drake wasn't ready to move on, but Zoe challenged him. One moment in time changed his thinking about them.
Zoe had so much on her plate and the last thing was her feelings for Drake.
If you like Jill Shalvis, Rachel Lacey, ...more
New Tricks is Drake (the oldest O'Grady brother) and Zoe's story. I've been (im)patiently waiting for this one. All of the bread crumbs given in previous books by the author promised a quite emotional read. With Zoe being both Drake's and Heather's -- his deceased wife -- best friend, it's a friends-to-lovers with a side of guilt kind of situation. I want to know how Kelly Moran tackled that.
Well, guess what this book is another winner for me; it's totally right up my alley.
I was absolutely excited now to read the third book from most wonderful series, Redwood Ridge. Written by the amazing, Kelly Moran. Another most romantic stories set from the Veterinarian Clinic from Redwood Ridge in Oregon. I have thoroughly adored both these beautiful books, such a wonderful classical love tale. Im just excited to read this third one too. It was a complete winner!
After Drake O’Grady heard this most horrific message. He was so completely shocked.K ...more
How awful it must be to love someone, and there be major obstacles to that love? Zoe Hornsby is a pet groomer in Drake O'Grady's Veterinary Clinic. They have been friends since they were kids along with Zoe's best friend Heather. Zoe had a huge crush on Drake, but he fell in love with, and married Heather. Zoe unselfishly stepped aside, never letting Heather or Drake learn of her feelings for Drake. The three remained close friends. Heather dev ...more
This book is very well written. The story is unique. The characters are fantastic and well developed. This book has everything I want in a book. There is humor, friendship, love, and a bit of drama.
Received an ARC from Netgalley on behalf of Kensington Books Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
I am not a widow and I pray I never have to be one. However, having to be a widow at a young age, even if that is in your late 20’s early 30’s cannot be easy. I had a friend who became a widow and was left with two little ones. You hear stories of such here and there, but you can never put yourself in that situation. The thoughts can become to ...more
And you call yourself my friend. Get out of my house. And don’t come back without cupcakes or tequila.
Zoe was dangerously close to hyperventilating. Her lungs had shrunken to prunes and her throat was tighter than Spanx.
He was man enough to admit he couldn’t handle her. With a passing glance, she had the ability to make a guy weep, beg for mercy, eat out of the palm of her hand, lose all thought process, shrivel his goods, and have him believe he wanted all of it.
I was so happy when I was granted access to the third book in the Redwood Ridge series, because it meant reading more about characters I loved dearly already!
I fell head over heels for Drake, let's be honest here: his character was incredibly well-written, raw and most importantly, extremely realistic. Zoe's one was beautiful, too, and their interactions had me grinning like an idiot during my train journey. I had to look up from my book ...more
The ending was OTT, it simply wasn't necessary. Why not making some cute epilogue?! Why rush to that and ruin everything in basically 2 cheesy pages?!
But honestly liked it a lot. Haven't read the first book in series yet, but from all that I can see Drake is and will be my favorite brother.
Liked both Zoe and Drake, liked how the story went, some things I did find weird (view spoiler)[-like the pa ...more
I laughed, I cried and I completely fell apart. This book captured me and it will never let me go. I'm literally still on the verge of crying, because this book made me so happy and sad, and I was so not prepared for this. I thought since Drake behaved so reserved in the previous books I was in for a sweet and romantic walk in the park, which resulted in him falling in love again. But, man was I wrong, I felt like half the time I was ugly-crying and had to put do ...more
This book was my first book by author Kelly Moran, but it won't be my last!! I enjoyed her characters, the banter and the plot. The author did an amazing job with grabbing the readers attention and never letting it go! The plot is fast moving and the reader alternates between wanting the book to end but not wanting it to end at the same time! If you are looking for a quick, fun, flirty read then look no farther! This is i ...more
Though I missed book one of this series, I read and loved book 2, Tracking Love. When the opportunity arise to read this one, I jumped on it. I am so very glad I did.
This is the story of Zoe and Drake. A touching story about two individuals whose life has been intertwined since birth. One has loved the other romantically since she was 16 . The other fell in love with her best friend. When tragedy strikes their friendship strengths but the lose is constantly felt.
The plot is well developed and yo ...more
This was the most awaited story in this series for me because I can slightly relate to Zoe predicament and I was really curious to find how Kelly Moran would have given her and Drake their happy ending.
Drake and Zoe journey from friends to lovers is scattered of hurdles.
The emotional ones are the hardest to overcome and they only succeed with the help of their family and friends.
New Tricks is the third installment in the Redwood Ridge series,it could be read as a stand alone but I suggest you
