Lovely 4* Review On Inkitt! Thank You (Again) Reader. #amreading #romance

I am so pleased readers are loving book #1 of my Romance Set in Paradise Series. The next book is out in six days! And I’m writing book #3. All I can say is thank you reader, your feedback and encouragement is why I write.

havana Heat

This is an interesting story because it shows the problems of trying to find love when previous relationships always rear their ugly head and seem to spoil what could be promising new beginnings. The couple in this story have to face just such problems before they can try to get together. I enjoyed the authors take on this dilemma and how she dealt with it. This is a really good beginning to a series.

Havana Heat is on flash sale just .99p /.99$ on Amazon for a limited time.

Lovely 5* Review on Inkitt: This Is Why I Write. Thank You Reader!#amreading

I’ll always write no matter what, or who says what for that matter. But as a published author, when you put your work out there for the world to read, love, like or hate, you’re always wondering if readers will connect with you. When they do, it’s so motivational to keep going. The late nights and lack of sleep seem worth it all over again. Not just at the time when you were so caught up in writing, you never noticed it was 3:00 am. Thank you for this lovely review reader… My response is, well I’ll take comments about scene changing as a positive. You wanted more of the characters no problem! When a writer hears this they could not be happier.  The Romance Set in Paradise Series Book #2 will be released in July, it’s a more  “slow burner” for you.

Thank you reader!

I found the story exhilarating which left me wanting more of Sebastian, Malinda and the gang. Though the story did seem a bit rushed switching through the scenes, at times I found myself needing to reread bits to get the full picture. But I love Kim’s writing style and fell in love with the characters and would like to know what the future holds for Seb and Melinda. Can’t wait to read more from Kim.

Book Review: Poppy’s Proposal by Gavin Ough 4.5 Wonderful Stars! @gavinough1 #amreading #romancenovels

Have you ever had that feeling when you’re so glad you stumbled across a book? This is how I feel about Poppy’s Proposal. By chance my path crossed with this month’s Meet The Author feature, Gavin Ough, I’m so glad I’ve met him. You can read his featured interview here. Let’s get into the review!

 The Plot:

Genre: Contemporary romance/ chick-lit/ romantic comedy

 This book is set in the UK at one of our popular and beautiful coastal seaside towns, Cornwell. I hate spoilers so I won’t give too much away. Poppy left school with not much in terms of qualifications. She’s now in her early thirties, and works in a hotel. Even though she’s surrounded by a great line up of entertaining co-workers and her girlfriend Rhea, life to her feels pretty mundane and boring. Her job is not exciting and her love life is non existent, until her path crosses with Aussie Greg and a rich high flying man, named Andrew. Both men take an interest in her, she can’t decide between the two. She decides to date both. It goes horribly wrong! There’s some drama and laughs once it does. But Poppy ends up in a happy place very unexpectedly.  Her personal life, love life and professional life all pick up. She has a great happy ever after, told in a very cleaver and unsuspecting way. She finds Mr. Tall Dark and Handsome and Poppy grows as a woman, with a massive life change.

My Review:

This book if you have not guessed by now is authored by a male writer! Massive props to Mr. Ough as he writes this genre so well, he should stick to it and write more. I like his style. Poppy’s proposal has everything a chick-lit/romantic comedy fan would expect from this genre. This genre is hard to write well and keep readers engaged, without being ridiculous. This has always been my “issue” with this type of romance. Uhh ahh you won’t find this with this author. There was laughter, fun, drama, and a massive dose of British humour which I loved. For me personally Poppy’s Proposal offered me what was missing in my reading life…good ol’ romantic humour! And lighthearted banter, wrapped up in a very enjoyable realistic story. This is the first romantic comedy/chick- lit story I’ve read, in probably four years when I thought about it. It reminded me why I need to read this genre more, and find good writers like Mr. Ough.

I really liked the setting of this book, a busy seaside town in the south west of the UK. I was drawn to the descriptions of the town and hotel, it resonated with me being British, and having visited Cornwell  just last summer too.

The character line up is diverse in terms of personalities and quirks. Aussie Greg, Techno Alan, Jane and Jimbo,  are just a few of the well developed characters. What I loved a lot is that this author was able to write these characters, with their relevant accents and be consistent and entertaining. The level of banter in this book is high. As a British reader I got the humour, at times I really did laugh our loud at it. Poppy is very entertaining with her thoughts and actions. Rhea her frank, straight talking best friend I connected with well.

Now, let’s get into Mr. Tall Dark and Handsome. The key feature for us romance junkies. What impressed me also, is this male author was able to write such a swoon worthy Mr. Tall Dark and Handsome. Mr. Tall Dark and Handsome was in the background, we meet him early as readers. For me he went from a background character to swoon worthy really well. He passed all my checklist points as a romance junkie. Handsome? Umm hmm I got the feeling via Poppy’s POV he was a strapping well built man, with great looks and nice eyes. Did he fight for his woman?  Umm hmm almost physically he did! *spoiler alert* I won’t say anymore. Was he good in bed? *Kim clears her throat*… well judging by the amount of sex Poppy had with him, I got the impression he was LOL. While the sex scenes were not detailed and graphic (which I would not really expect them to be, in this genre of romance), the author was able to use the great writer’s skill of “show,don’t tell.”  He has mastered this writer’s skill well, readers can draw a clear conclusion. Good job!

Overall, I’m giving Poppy’s proposal 4.5 well deserved stars as it is well written, has an engaging realistic plot, that I could see happening in real life. Especially the twists and turns once Poppy meets Mr. Tall Dark and Handsome. I love the setting, okay bias as I’m British but hey I connected. The entertainment factor is there. This author for a male romance writer, has done a brilliant job with this genre! And massive props should be given for his effort.  The only thing I would have liked to have seen more of, is more drama once Poppy’s busted for her double dating. The men seemed to neatly fall away. That said, it does not take away anything enjoyable from the reading as the story gears up toward a great HEA.

This is a great read for lighthearted romance/ contemporary and chick-lit fans. I will be reading more of this author’s work for sure. Especially once he drops his paranormal romance /sci- fi novel to be released soon I hope! I really look forward to it.

Call Me Cutie By Ava Sterling 5* #erotica #amreading

ncall me cutie

 

BOOM! She’s back if you missed it you can read Ava’s Meet The Author interview here.  and a review of one of her other books I read this week here. Remember I told you she really is productive,and releases a lot of short stories each month, well I got an ARC and  dipped into this one this morning while eating breakfast. I really enjoyed the story.  As I’ve said erotica is my guilty pleasure genre to read,  I have no shame I’ll read it all, I’m a damn romance author who writes spicy scenes herself what do you expect? I’m yet to find an erotica author I’m totally in love with… I think I’ve found her. Yep, I’ll part with my money for her stories no problem. Her stories have a good element of realism, I often find sometimes erotica is so unrealistic. She said in her in interview some of her writing is based on experience or experiences she would like…I narrow my eyes and look at Ava’s author page and think ” you naughty, naughty girl”.  Her characters so far seem engaging. Let’s get into the review…

The Plot:

Katie is a plain Jane in every way, at just twenty six years old she is rather envious of the tall blonde females men pass her up for. One night she’s messing around online and finds an app that promises to turn her into a “hot woman”. It does just that, literally. The story for me started off as a fun light one, when I got to this part. I was reading and eating breakfast thinking, okay the author has held back this is more fun and there will be some naughtiness somewhere. I was so so so wrong!

When Katie changes into a” hot new upgraded version of herself”, she gets dressed in her heels , new clothes and  then heads out for a coffee at her usual place. She is served by the one guy she hates, as he lusts after women so openly. He treats her differently, Katie experiences a real thrill as this new desirable women. On the way out she meets a hot guy, he opens the door for her like a true gentlemen…. swoon ladies enter Mr. Tall Dark and Handsome… and get this HE’S IN A SHARP SUIT LOL my one weakness.I almost died as the author paints a picture of a powerful, handsome man… he’s a lawyer so good choice of profession to go with the suit and handsome looks. So, like I was saying she meets Mr. Tall Dark and handsome they go out to dinner that night, Katie puts on  her  high heels and  her “freak ’em dress” as Beyonce would call it, and turns into a bit of a freak between the sheets  herself that’s all I’m sayin’ 🙂

I’m giving Call Me Cutie five wonderful stars as there is an element of fun and escapism, don’t we all wish there was an app to download and turn us into a hot woman? But there is also a great Mr. Tall Dark and Handsome and the ending… my god I totally never saw it coming. Yes, I blushed that Katie is somethin’ else.

Grab a copy .99 on Amazon.

Ava, can’t wait to read more.
