Dating Down

Dating Down

Suddenly single and unexpectedly poor, it’s definitely safe to say that Alexis Harland is not living the life of her dreams.

Although she’s determined that nothing, not one little thing, will stop her return from poverty. Well, almost nothing. Her pride might get in the way a little. And possibly her family. And maybe the fact that she hasn’t got a clue where to start.

Many years ago, Alexis was swept away from life on a caravan park and introduced to a world of riches and glamour. All thanks to a wealthy man who married her, reinvented her… and then dumped her for a younger model at the first sign of cellulite.

Now Alexis is stranded, struggling to keep her head above water and her history a secret from her highbrow friends.

As if that isn’t enough for a woman to deal with, one night she comes home to find a sexy man has landed, quite literally, on her doorstep. A man hell-bent on testing everything Alexis thinks she knows about true happiness.

Caught between the life she knows and her blossoming love, can Alexis afford to let go of her unwavering pride, kiss her social status goodbye and accept that stepping back to square one is sometimes a huge leap forward?

My Thoughts

4 Second Chance Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Loved this book and I love Bob, where can I find me a Bob??? This was a delightful story filled with so much humor, hope, and heart! It was all about second chances and figuring out what really matters.. this book kept me smiling throughout, I was just so engaged with these characters even though I didn’t love all of them from the get go…

Alexis is newly single and broke… used to the finer things in life she tends to judge a person by the size of their wallet rather than the size of their heart… Alexis was the kind of character that grew on you over the course of a book, in the beginning I did not much like her, but with the help of Bob I began to see the good in her…. Bob is the caring taxi driver who drops off Candy, Alexis‘s sister at her house after a night of drinking…. Bob is concerned about Candy and that is how he meets Alexis and changes the course of her life for the better… as you can tell I am a bit enamored of Bob, but you will be to after read this book, I defy you not to be!Candy was a fabulous character I thought she brought such energy to every part of the book she was in….

A wonderfully heartwarming story about second chances and acceptance… A book with laughs throughout A true romcom but SO much Mark!

Strongly recommend if you enjoy romances that make you hope, laugh, love, and smile…

Author Bio –

Diane Louise is a dairy farmer’s wife from the UK who doesn’t know a Holstein from a Hereford.

But what she does know is how to write a funny story. Three years ago she tried to write steamy romance and sucked at it. Honestly, her stiff upper lip made her heroes more wet blankets than wet dreams. With a steely determination to avoid milking the cows, she turned her hand to Romantic Comedy and a star was born. Well, in her mind at least.

Fancy getting to know the woman behind the words?

She hangs around Facebook daily, desperately avoiding housework, and loves nothing more than chatting to fellow lovers of Romantic Comedy over at Di’s Romantic Comedy Club. Or, if you don’t do Facebook, that’s cool, because she also sends a monthly email to her readers, making sure they never miss a new release and sharing behind the scene info about her books. You can join The Monthly Club here.

A Match Made in Heaven? by Sun Chara @rararesources #BookReview #Giveaway

Hope you’re having a lovely Sunday!

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for this Divine Romance! Many thanks to Rachel for my invitation!💕

A Match Made In Heaven

Who ‘s meddling with happily ever after?

The Wedding: it’s a set up.
The Break-up: it’s a con.
The Reconciliation: it’s a trap.

When high society bride, Samantha Carroll, devises an ingenious plan to ditch her meddling matchmaking mamma’s groom of choice, the banker’s son, instead of the ordinary Irish guy Johnny Belen she’s pining for, all pandemonium breaks loose.

In the meantime, Johnny has devised his own plan to thwart monster-mamma-in-law’s matchmaking for the wedding of the season, but it is soon clear that Sam is not the type of girl who can be scooped up by just any man…

My Thoughts

This was a contemporary romance with some divine intervention… Samantha and Johnny get married in order to stop Samantha‘s mothers meddling…. but could this couple‘s marriage of convenience turn into their happily ever after?

There is a lot of humor in this book, I found myself laughing out loud quite a few times… Samantha really was not the most likable characters, in fact I’m not sure if she deserved Johnny… The two of them were quite frustrating throughout most of the book their inability to communicate with each other and the secrets they kept from one another were somewhat mind-boggling…. admittedly the flow to this book was sometimes a bit disjointed, but the humor even that out… I just kind of had to “go with the flow!“

A fun romance with a bit of a different twist….

Evie’s Little Black Book by Hannah Pearl @HannahPearl_1 @rararesources #BookReview #Giveaway

Happy Sunday book friends!

Excited to share with you my review for this enchanting book of self discovery! Many thanks to Rachel for my invitation to the blog tour and to Hannah Pearl for her wonderful words💛

Evies Little Black Book

Is hunting down every man you’ve kissed the answer to finding Mr Right?


When Evie is invited to the wedding of the guy she’d fancied throughout her teens, it’s the final straw. What’s wrong with her and why can’t she keep a man? 

In between consoling herself with ice cream and chocolate, and sobbing her heart out to her cousin Chamaine, Evie has a brainwave – and it all centres around her ‘little black book’ (well, more floral patterned notebook really) – which contains the details of every man she’s ever kissed or dated. Perhaps the cure for her disastrous love life has been nestled within its pages all along … 


Does Evie’s little black book really hold the answers, or will she learn that exes are exes for a reason? 

My Thoughts

4 Delightful Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Can you imagine hunting down every boy you ever kissed or crushed on? To try to figure out what went wrong? Well after receiving a wedding invitation to an excrushes wedding evie does just that…. completely blindsided and confounded by her ex getting married before her Evie wants to find out what’s wrong with her?“ A fun book filled with laughs, romance, and self discovery…

Evie was such a fun and likable character who I also found tremendously relatable…. her best friend pointed out to her that it wasn’t her, she just had bad taste in men, something I completely understand…. but Evie was not completely convinced so she busted out her little black book, that was actually more floral them black and contacted the men of her past… along the way she meets jake as well as his sister and adorable niece, and a wonderful friendship develops…. loved the relationship between Evie and Jake especially because it began with such a strong friendship…. also Jake went along with the journey of discovery, that included some bumps and surprises…

This was such a quick enjoyable read filled with so much hope… I could absolutely see this book as a movie, in fact it reminded me of a few movies with a bit of a different angle…. recommend to those of you who enjoy a book of self discovery filled with some romance and laughs…
