the blurb

Maggy Fitzgerald is happy. She works at her best friend’s flower shop with the full knowledge that this is probably as good as its going to get. That is until that same friend talks her into going out to a biker bar so they can "live on the wild side" for a night.

Nate Black is cranky. He has a right to be. At least that’s what he thinks. Spending an evening now and then drinking a beer with the guys EasyRiders, is one of the only things that he enjoys, sort of.

Then, he meets her.
A sexy, curvy woman who makes him smile... and laugh.
A dangerous woman.

Good thing he’s an a**hole because getting rid of her the next morning is easy.
The hard part?
Forgetting her.

my review

I’m a true Kayt Miller fan. I love the stories she creates, full of angst and laughter and every emotion in between. Her character development is stunning, so relatable. The sympathetic characters she creates are so real, tugging at my heart and soul. And then there are times I want to reach into my Kindle to throttle some of characters. She creates some of the most anger-worthy, frustrating characters I’ve ever read. That may sound like a negative, but it is not. It’s a positive that I love, dragging me and investing me into the story.

Maggy Fitzgerald is the former, and Nate Black is the latter. Maggy is everything I love in a character. Strong, capable, quirky, smart. And Nate… well, Nate has baggage. And he is stubborn, frustrating, angsty, and still utterly redeemable.

Kayt Miller is a genius at creating characters and stories that the reader falls into! If you love stories with a lot of meat to them and great characters, try Cranky Pants.

About Kayt Miller

Kayt grew up in the midwest surrounded by a loving family which included three brothers, one sister, and parents who always fostered her creative side.

Kayt wrote her first book when she couldn’t find a story about a certain type of a woman and a specific kind of man. She called it Game Changer and it couldn’t have been a more appropriate title. It changed her life in many ways.

Her goal, as a writer, is to write stories that relate to all of us, to make readers laugh and maybe cry sometimes. Kayt hopes her readers can escape into a fantasy, one that’s actually possible. Sure, some of the stories are dubbed “Insta-love” but that’s okay.
