Blog Tour: Just Another Silly Love Song By Rich Amooi*


'Two rival radio personalities. Lori Martin is a positive and upbeat DJ, known for playing love songs and dedications. Ben Baxter dishes out no-nonsense, in-your-face relationship advice. Total opposites. Never in a million years would they want to work together.

Fired for losing her cool after her boyfriend breaks up with her on the air, Lori surprisingly receives a job offer for the coveted morning show at the radio station across town where Ben works. She thinks she’s replacing him, but finds out they want to team up Lori with her archenemy to set the air waves on fire and boost ratings. Financially strapped, she can’t turn down the job.

While their on-air fireworks and explosive chemistry make for great listening, what in the world will happen after work hours?'

I honestly have no idea where to start when it comes to this book. So going to start at literally the front cover, why because I love the cover on this book. It's gives you an animated feel which goes hand in had with the comedy that this book brings. As you read this book you get drawn in to not only the story but also the funny side. This book starts you off in Ben's point of view and had me laughing from Chapter 1.

The book focuses on Ben and Lori, who have chemistry from the first time they meet. I mean the relationship these two characters have is so amazing it will keep you reading not just for the comedy but anticipating their next interaction. Although Ben and Lori are the main focus in this book, you do have a bit of a background relationship going on which is equally as interesting. 

This is definitely the type of book that once you get into the story you don't want to put it down! Whether you are staying for the comedy or the interactions this book will not let you down! This book really is Romantic Comedy at it's best, to the point that I think it would be a smash if it was a movie. 

Let's tell you a little bit about the Author Rich Amooi. A former Radio personality and DJ who now writes romantic comedies full time in San Diego. Rich believes in public displays of affection, silliness, infinte possibilities, donuts, gratitude, laughter and happily ever after. He is happily married to a kiss monster imported from Spain.

Between the great characters and their interactions this book will leave you wanting more. More of Ben and Lori and definitely more from the author. I dare say you may want to clear a block of time as you can easily start and finish this book in one sitting. Trust me the book will make you want to read it in one sitting. You can get your hands on this romcom HERE.

Until Next Time

Review: Bad Business By J.C. Harroway*



'An island honeymoon for one…
…becomes a racy fling for two!
My friends and I have a ‘pleasure pact’—live more fully and indulge in a red-hot fling. Newly single and up to the challenge, I'm more than ready for some no-strings thrills in tropical Fiji—and gorgeous paddleboarding instructor Ryan Dempsey is the perfect man to share them with. But our electrifying chemistry soon becomes a more passionate connection…can I convince Ryan to risk our affair for something deeper?'

I have to begin by saying that I was speechless after finishing this book, in the best way. I mean I had no words in my head that I could use to describe this book. Let alone try and get my feelings about this book across to you, but I am going to give it a go. 

So the story is that of Grace and Ryan, what a pair they make so amazing. The chemistry that these two people have from the first moment they meet is simply perfection. It's raw and it draws the reader in so they are waiting for the first electric steamy night. A night wish does not disappoint, it's filled with a combustion of all the chemistry that you see developing. Not only that it continues to develop throughout the entire story. 

Grace is such a great character in the way that you can see her grow and change as the book progresses. She is the type of character that we all want as our friends. Ryan on the other hand is someone who is built to make women go weak at the knees. From the Author's descriptions I feel like he is the ideal guy to star in those naughty fantasies we all have. 

This book is well written and has everything in it to keep the reader absorbed until they have read every single last word. The pleasure pact between friends Grace, Neve and Brooke is sure to be a journey that we will all want to follow. I personally was overjoyed at knowing that Bad Business is the first in the Pleasure Pact Series. A series I will be keeping my eye out for. 

Overall I absolutely loved this entire story, it was hot and it left me wanting more. More of the pleasure pact and more books by J.C. Harroway. This is the kind of book that will keep you entertained and you will also be left wanting more. You can get your copy HERE.

Until Next Time

After losing all he holds dear in a horrific fire, Max Aldersley, Earl of Rivenhall, shuns the world—until he catches Effie Nithercott digging holes on his estate! He banishes the intrepid archaeologist and the unsettled feelings she rouses within him. But she returns even more determined and infuriatingly desirable than before! He wonders just how deep she’s prepared to dig—so far she’ll reach the man beneath his scars?'

This is the story of Max and Effie and what a brilliant story it is. From the moment these two meet they have such chemistry. I really can't say enough about how much I loved this pairing. The relationship between the two people was simply dynamic and amazing. Their relationship is one o the many reasons that kept me reading this book.

As she got older, the stories got more complicated, sometimes taking weeks to get to the happy ending. Then one day, she decided to embrace her insomnia and start writing them down. Despite that, it still takes her forever to fall asleep.

Blog Tour: Summer In Provence By Lucy Coleman*


'Is a change as good as a rest?
When married couple Fern and Aiden have a windfall, their reactions could not be more different. While Fern is content to pay off their mortgage and build a nest egg before starting a family, her husband is set on traveling the world.
Fern’s not much of a back-packer so, before she knows it, the idea of a ‘marriage gap year’ takes shape. And, as Aiden heads off to the wilds of Australia, Fern chooses the more restful Provence for her year out.
Set amidst the glorious French scenery, Château de Vernon offers a retreat from the hustle and bustle of normal life, and Fern agrees to help out in return for painting lessons from the owner – renowned, but rather troubled, painter Nico.
As their year unfolds in very different ways, will the time apart transform their marriage, or will it drive Fern and Aiden even further apart…

Let Lucy Coleman whisk you off on a heart-warming, sun-drenched and magical French adventure.'

So the main stars of this story are Fern, Aiden and Nico who are each on a journey that can end in a multiple of ways. Now this story is very well written and I thoroughly enjoyed every word.

Blog Tour: The New Guy By Kathryn Freeman*


'Sam Huxton doesn’t do one-night stands, especially not with men she’s just met! But the hot guy at the bar was hard to resist and their one night together is one she’ll never forget.
But one night is all they share – no names, no numbers, just some much needed fun…

Until the same guy walks into Sam’s life the next day as her new employee.  Sam never mixes business with pleasure and makes it clear an office fling with Ryan is off-limits.  But after-hours…one thing can lead to another. Can Sam trust her heart and her business with the new guy?'

This book tells the story of Sam and Ryan and I have to say they had an awesome story. From the very first word of this story I found myself stuck like glue to this book and the story that was unfolding. The chemistry between the two main characters was clear from the get go and really sizzled throughout the entire book. 

What was amazing is that Kathryn put as much thought into the relationships between the main characters as she did with whoever they interacted with. This is evident in the book when you read about Sam and her friends as well as anyone Sam or Ryan interact with. 

Something that was refreshing about this book is that Sam our female lead is the strong CEO character that has typically been played by a male. Now don't get me wrong Ryan was still very manly and lovable but I loved the strength that Sam has in this book. It was also nice to see that when you were inside Ryan's head, with his point of view he would think and worry about stuff that typically you only saw a women worry about. 

Now let's talk about the Author, Kathryn Freeman is a former Pharmacist, now medical writer who also writes Romance. She can go from a racing heart due to a medical condition to the cause being a hunky hero. She lives with her husband and two teenage boys. Her husband may not be the most  romantic man around valentines day but his unstinting support about her career change proves love isn't just about Hearts and Flowers and heroes come in many disguises. 

Overall I really loved this book and to find out that actually it is part of a series just makes me so happy. This story was easy to get stuck into and you will find yourself quickly making your way through this story. I for one will definitely be keeping my eyes peeled for the next book and will be picking more by Kathryn Freeman in the future.You can get your copy of Sam and Ryan's Story Here.

Until Next Time

Blog Tour: You've Got My Number By Angela Barton*


'Three isn’t always a magic number … 
There are three reasons Tess Fenton should be happy. One, her job at the Blue Olive deli may be dull, but at least she gets to work with her best friend. Two, she lives in a cosy cottage in the pretty village of Halston. Three, she’s in love with her boyfriend, Blake. 


Isn’t she? 

Because, despite their history, Blake continues to be the puzzle piece in Tess’s life that doesn’t quite fit. And when she meets intriguing local artist Daniel Cavanagh, it soon becomes apparent that, for Tess, love isn’t as easy as one, two, three … '

This story is the perfect companion for when you want to curl up on a winter's night or any night and get lost in another world. It is the kind of book that you say one more chapter before bed and the next time you see the end of a chapter you realize you have read 8 chapters. You will get lost in this story and lose track of time. I wouldn't suggest reading this book if you are on a bus or train, you may just miss your stop. 

This book is the definition of an uplifting romantic story, you will find yourself falling in love with some of the characters while at the same time disliking some other characters. I love that this book really shows you the view points of Tess, Blake, Daniel and a few other characters. This means that even if you begin to dislike a character you end up seeing their reasoning for doing something.

Now let's tell you a little bit about the Author Angela Barton who lives in Nottingham and a member of the Nottingham Writers' Studio and the Romantic Novelists' Association. Angela has written three novels that have all passed through the RNA's New Writers Scheme and are now published. Her first novel was a historical fiction that was set in France and published in 2018. Her second and third books are contemporary women's fiction. Angela is currently busy writing her fourth book set in France during wartime, her new passion is to research real life happenings and create fictional characters that live through the extraordinary events. Alongside other authors Angela has helped create two Facebook groups for book lovers called Apricot Plots and Love Forties Fiction.

Overall I really enjoyed this book and although this is my first book by Angela Barton it certainly won't be my last. I enjoyed the way she wrote this book and honestly can't wait to check out other books she has written. You can get your copy of this book HERE.

Until Next Time
