Rumor has it…

Kinley Reed is burning up more than just the dancefloor—she’s getting a “check-up” from the town’s hot doc, and he’s being thorough…

Nothing spells coming home to Pine Valley like G-O-S-S-I-P with a capital G.

Kinley Reed is not the type to fool around with men she just met, but when Jace Detweiler strikes up conversation two barstools down, she can’t help but f

Wow and the laughs and hijinx keep coming in the little town of Pine Valley. This time sexy single dad Jace and town newbie Kinley are making things steamy. This is a great page turner with a great group of supporting characters. You will love to hate evil miss Evelyn, she seems to pop up everywhere. I happen to LOVE single dad romances and Bed Buddies did not disappoint!

Kinley and Jace (Dr. McSteamy) practically seared my Kindle from the very beginning of this book. Kinley is moping around at the local bar lamenting on her broken dreams she left in New York as he attempts to flirt with her. They share a few drinks and some laughs before deciding to give in to the sizzling chemistry between them and have a "fling." As their story progresses, Kinley continuously tries to deny that their fling is becoming more serious and insists on being just "bed buddies."

Jace is the Pine Valley Pediatrician, and as such, he is well known and well liked by most of the townspeople. Kinley was a Broadway star until her dance partner dropped her, and her ankle shattered. When that happened, her fiancé dropped her and her career ended. So she’s a little lost and feeling sorry for herself, when she meets Jace in a bar. He’s moping in the same bar because he’d been stood up for a blind date. They start talking and flirting, and soon they are enjoying a quick o

Wowzers, this book was my buddy today as I read the day away. I can think of no better way to have pass a rainy day than laughing and swooning over Dr. Jace.

For those of you that have read DILF diaries you will remember Dr Jace, pediatrician. For those of you that haven't, you really should. It is AMAZING!!! I will confess I didn't much care for Dr. Jace in Portland. Dr. Jace of Pine Valley had me rooting for him.

This story is incredible! A fun and adorable love story that warms your heart and makes you smile. One might say a love story times two if you include JT!

Kinley is very focused on all she has lost. Her life has become a confused mess without direction. Meeting Jace, the town pediatrician, keeps Kinley on her toes avoiding him and anything sounding like serious. It doesn’t help matters when she meets JT. These two guys are easy to love.

Jace is HOT. He is easy going, kind hearted and a

In this story, we have Kinley, who was a dancer in NYC. However, she had a bad fall, and now is back in her home town, helping her sister teach little ones at a local dance studio. Kinley feels that she is a wash up and isn’t happy with her life now that she’s back home.

One night while trying to look for something to do in the small town, she winds up at the local bar, which is the only place open after 6p, and meets a handsome stranger who she is taken with.

Kinley and Jace barely meet when the sparks fly off them. The town kid doctor and the almost Broadway star have nothing in common. Until they are caught by the Rumor Has it Facebook page. Then they have a common enemy. While Jace would like to see a future for them, Kinley isn't sure where her future lies. Her dance career ended with an ankle injury along with her fiancee's promise to marry. She came home to regroup not to find a soulmate.

The gossip maven of Pine Valley strikes again!! Kinley and Jace have a one-time hook up, but their chemistry is so explosive it catches the eye of the town’s self-appointed gossip. Though Kinley believes they’re just having a fling, Jace sees so much more. When she gets the chance to pursue her dreams in NYC, Jace knows he must let her go. Will Kinley figure out which dream is the one she really wants? And, will “Evil” Evelyn ever stop making her defamatory claims?

Should we chase our dreams or catch our soulmate?
Another hit from Stephanie St.Klaire ! I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Sneaking Around, and I couldn’t wait to see what she had in store for this one and oh boy did I ever laugh ! Another really funny story but this one holds a little bit more of a deeper side and my heart swelled with a nice turn of events. It’s nice to be brought back in the small town of Pine Valley and hear more about the residents and also to have a little pea

Heather Reed moves back to her home town after her dreams are crushed. Clay Walker is the town pediatrician and single father.

Their attraction is instant and explosive. A fling that is developing into something deeper and more meaningful. I love these two characters together. Sometimes life doesn't take you in the direction you wanted but in the way it was meant to be.

I really liked how we got to revisit the residents of St. Helena and that Nora is still up to her tricks.

Stephanie St. Klaire has a quirky sense of humor which she turns loose on the pages of Bed Buddies in the series Rumor Has It. As in Sneaking Around, the instigator of the town facebook gossip page is at it again, this time with Jace, the town pediatrician, and Kinley, a Broadway dancer who comes home to Pine Valley due to a serious injury. What occurs is rom-com at its finest! Every small town has a gossip monger and the things posted on the Rumor Has It facebook pages are rarely the exact trut ...more

Absolutely adored Kinley and Jace’s story in Bed Buddies by Stephanie St. Klaire! Her books are always a ton of fun to read and I find myself relating to her characters throughout her books.

Kinley reminded me a lot of myself. Trying to find a way to start over after life knocks you down and doesn’t quite want to let you back up for air. Jace is attracted to Kinley from the start, and the sparks are flying, but he also has a son to look after too.

Soon a one night stand turns into a fling and into something more. But Kinley being vary of relationships keeps looking at it as a way of getting back at the town busybody Evelyn.
Bed buddies though a short, quick read, it packs a punch worthy of a full length novel. It is fun, cute, romantic, steamy ....... so good that I can keep adding the adje

Kinley and Jace’s story is sweet, fun, and quirky. This is a love story that starts as a casual hook up, grows to a fling as a scheme to outwit the town’s gossip, and becomes forever. This is a story overflowing with great characters and an engaging storyline which will keep you involved from beginning to end. This is a wonderful series that you don’t want to miss! There is so much scheming and shenanigans you won’t want to stop reading!

Funny and sweet romance.

Loved it. Had me laughing and teary eyed. Nothing like having a nosy neigbor to report everything her facebook page #RumorHasIt.
The small town doctor pics up the newly returned to town dancer freshly kicked off broadway. What better way to get over the blues, but with a one-night stand. Of course nosy neighbor reports all. They both decide to give her something to talk about. Can this "fling" turn into something permanent?

I really enjoyed this cute book! Kinley has her heart broken after losing her career and fiance. She comes home and meets Jace, the sexy kid doc in town. Jace falls pretty hard and fast from Kinley. A fling turns into something more, add in a sweet little three year old boy And of course you bring in Evelyn and her #rumorhasit posts and you have a hilarious story. I loved this book.

This is a cute story set in Pine Valley (like Sneaking Around). In this one Kinley moves to Pine Valley after an injury ends her career of being a dancer. She meets Jace, a cute pediatrician in a bar & they start talking. They hit it off & their relationship becomes the talk of the town because of Evelyn's #rumorhasit facebook page. They decide to get back at Evelyn for those posts by spending more & more time together (as well as spending time with Jace's little boy). ...more
