Uncork My Love by Rich Amooi @RichAmooi @rararesources #BlogTour #BookReview

Hello lovelies and happy Easter to those who celebrate! Today I have a review of Uncork My Love by Rich Amooi as part of the blog tour organised by Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources but that’s not all; there’s a giveaway to win an Amazon gift card and it’s open internationally! (See bottom of the post)

Title: Uncork My Love by Rich Amooi

Date Published: 25th March 2021

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Description:

A sweet romantic comedy set in beautiful Napa Valley!

Ivy needs a miracle and a drink—not necessarily in that order. With a struggling winery, the only hope of keeping her dream alive is snagging a gold medal at the annual wine competition. She’s determined to win, but she can do it without the help of Ted Jacobs, aka Mr. Know-it-All.

Ted wants to catch lightning in a bottle and create the world’s greatest wine, but he’s smart enough to know he can’t do it alone. When he heads to Napa to keep his grandma from ending up in jail (don’t ask), he meets Ivy. She’s as complex and intoxicating as his award-winning cabernet, but as stubborn as the mule next door when she stomps on his offer to collaborate.

Ted knows it’s risky to mix business with pleasure, but if Ivy would only listen, they might just be the toast of the town.

Review:

I want to thank Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me on this tour and the author for providing me with a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

Whenever I hear Rich Amooi has a new book coming out, I know it’s going be a must read.  I’m so glad I read this when I did as March was a particularly hard month for me and Uncork My Love helped to take my mind off things.

Rich Amooi takes the trope of rivals to romance and makes it his own with his trademark humour and sweet romance.

Ted and Ivy are such delightful characters. Ivy is fierce and independent, not willing to take help from anybody, especially Ted. Then there’s too honest for his own good Ted, who seems to keep rubbing Ivy up the wrong way. I absolutely loved the verbal sparring between Ivy and Ted, which was so much fun to read.

A special shout out goes to meddling grandmothers Loretta and Sherry who may be in their seventies but it doesn’t stop them getting up to mischief, especially when it comes to their grandchildren!

There was some excellent research about wine making which shines through but also doesn’t get too info dumpy or technical. It even made me interested in wine and I don’t even drink the stuff!

Uncork my love is a pitch perfect romcom that will make you a little love drunk after reading it! (Had to get some sort of drinking pun in there!)

#BlogTour #BookReview Flying Duo by Zoe May @rararesources @zoe_writes

Title: Flying Duo by Zoe May

Date Published: 1st March 2021

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Description:

Can true love go the distance?

London lawyer Rachel Watson has wound up in an Indian ashram with hippy heartthrob lover, Seb.

A high-achiever, Rachel has always lived life according to her Life List, ticking off goals along the way. But now that she’s in India, Rachel is going with the flow, or at least trying to…

Rachel’s visa is running out and it’s time to decide whether her relationship with Seb is a holiday romance or built to last.

The pair embark on a trip to Nepal for an Everest base camp trek, but will their relationship survive this gruelling expedition or is it time to part ways?

Flying Duo is the second romantic comedy in the ‘Flying’ series, following on from bestseller, Flying Solo, which was described by the Daily Express newspaper as ‘a must read that will appeal to fans of Sophie Kinsella, Beth O’Leary and Mhari McFarlane’ ★★★★★

US – https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08C8Q8FZM

Review:

I want to thank Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me on this tour and providing me with a copy of Flying Duo in exchange for an honest review.

I read the first in the series Flying Solo at the end of last year to prepare for Flying Duo but I needn’t have worried it works well as a standalone but as always to get the most out of the characters I recommend reading the first novel.

Rachel Watson has become somewhat infamous in India after suing the Guru Hridaya, the owner of the ashram she met dishy Canadian Seb, for tax evasion. Her work visa is rapidly expiring and does not know what the future is for her and Seb. He suggests a trip to Nepal to climb Mount Everest. What could go wrong? 

Flying Duo came along at just the right time. I needed something light-hearted reading along with the added bonus of being set in a different country from my own, which made me feel like I was escaping from my house for a while (seriously sick of staring at the same walls right now).

What I liked about this story which I thought was missing from the first is that we get to know Seb a bit better and even meet his dad! I also enjoyed Rachel’s progression as a character, letting go of her life list and trying (still failing a little) to live in the moment.

The ending to the story was the perfect wrap up to Rachel and Seb’s story and gave me all the awws.

Flying Duo gave me all the fuzzy feelings and escapism I needed in a romcom novel.

Photographed in the Writer’s Room by Michelle L.E. Price @MichelleLEPrice @rararesources #PublicationDay #RomanceFiction

Hello lovelies and happy Valentine’s Day! Today I have a Publication Day spotlight for Photographed in the Writer’s Room by Michelle L.E. Price, the standalone second book in the Writer’s Room Series.

Title: Photographed in the Writer’s Room by Michelle .L.E. Price

Date Published: 14th February 2021

Genre: Rom Com

Description:

Former TV star Brandi Tyler’s big screen debut crashed and burned amid rumors of an affair with her married co-star… Now, she wants nothing more than to quietly slink away from Hollywood. When she’s offered an opportunity to get out of town and work on a project involving the photographer that launched her career, it seems like the perfect escape! Unfortunately for Brandi, her famous face makes hiding out even a huge city like Houston a little tricky. 

When the celebrated photographer’s son offers to let her use his home for privacy, it seems like everything is falling into place. Little does she know that Michael Ames a gorgeous best selling author, and he comes with the package! As Brandi makes her way through old photographs and new scandals, Michael struggles with his next project, and they both fight the growing attraction between them. 

Maybe a posse of new girlfriends, some Texas-sized boozy brunches, and a little private time in the writer’s room will help this leading lady find her path back onscreen. And, if she can just picture it, maybe this time she’ll even find love?

You can buy your copy here:

About The Author:

Born in Montreal but raised in New England, author Michelle L. E. Price has been writing as long as anyone can remember. An avid reader who was on the verge of losing her mind as a mom to two small children, Michelle began writing her first book, Hidden in the Writer’s Room, as an escape… at least her characters would do exactly what she told them to do and she could always count on a happily ever after ending. She also enjoys wine, re-watching 90’s sitcoms and occasionally running, but heavily relies on writing to stay sane. Michelle is a firm believer that laughter and love are the best parts of life.

#BookReview Flying Solo by Zoe May

Title: Flying Solo by Zoe May

Date Published: 6th July 2020

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Description:

Rachel Watson has it all worked out. By 30, she’s ticked off most of the goals on her Life List. She’s a home owner, a partner at her law firm, she has a gorgeous boyfriend, lots of hobbies and loads of good friends. The only thing that’s missing is a ring on her finger.

According to her Life List, Rachel should be getting hitched around now, so when her boyfriend, Paul, plans a romantic date, Rachel’s pretty confident he’s going to propose. Except Paul has other ideas. He’s jetting off to India to find himself.

Distraught, Rachel doesn’t know what to do. Not one to easily admit defeat, she embarks on a mission to win him back.

Flying solo to India is definitely not part of Rachel’s plans, but could her trip teach her unexpected lessons about love, life and herself? Could she realise that perhaps her Life List wasn’t exactly what she wanted, after all? 

Review:

So I know the second in this series, Flying Duo, is coming out next year and I signed up for the blog tour, then I remembered I had a copy of the first, so I thought I had better start there.

Rachel thinks her boyfriend Paul is going to propose, which would put her on track for her life list, but she gets a rude shock when he ups and dumps her, jetting off to India. With some gentle persuasion from her friend Priya, she goes after Paul and tries to win him back. What she doesn’t expect is that the trip will change her life by meeting the handsome Seb along the way. 

Flying solo is a romance all about taking chances and finding yourself in the most unexpected places.

Rachel is ambitious, organised and focused which in the beginning of the novel made her a little unlikeable but as she starts to relax and we find out why she is the way she is, I really warmed up to her.

My only issue was with Seb, I felt he was a bit bland compared to Rachel. Maybe it was just because he seemed so chilled out or maybe he needed a little more development but as I said earlier, there’s a second novel coming out soon so I’m looking forward to getting to know his character better.

Flying Solo is a light-hearted romance and the perfect for a bit of escapism.

#BlogTour #Review It’s Raining Men by Rich Amooi @rararesources @RichAmooi

Hi lovelies and welcome to my stop on the blog tour for It’s Raining Men by Rich Amooi, as well as my review there’s a little bonus giveaway to win an Amazon gift card and it’s open internationally (see bottom of the post). First a little about the book:

Title: It’s Raining Men by Rich Amooi

Date Published: 21st October 2020

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Description:

On a dare, Faith Daniels tosses a coin into the infamous “Fountain of Love” and wishes for the perfect man, laughing it off as the dumbest thing she’s ever done. Like magic, her quiet life turns upside-down when men begin to appear out of nowhere. There’s a doctor, a lawyer, a firefighter, and a swimwear model, for starters. All of them are kind, generous, successful, and drop-dead gorgeous. All of them are interested in Faith. But who is Mr. Right?

A feel-good romance novel about love, friendship, and living life to the fullest!

You can buy your copy here:

UK – https://www.amazon.co.uk/Its-Raining-Men-Rich-Amooi-ebook/dp/B08KKTGL3Z/

US – https://www.amazon.com/Its-Raining-Men-Rich-Amooi-ebook/dp/B08KKTGL3Z/ 

Review:

I want to thank Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me on this tour and Rich Amooi for providing me with a copy of It’s Raining Men in exchange for an honest review.

I’m a huge fan of Rich Amooi’s rom coms so when I hear he has a new one coming out, I know I have to read it.

It’s Raining Men is a sweet romance all about hope and taking chances. 

Faith has shut herself off from love after the love of her life died five years ago. With a lot of persuading from her friends Tracy and Kim, she throws a coin into what they nicknamed the ‘love fountain’. Convinced nothing is going to happen, Faith gets a shock when men start asking her out. With a little more persuading, she goes on dates in a bid to find Mr Right.

What I love about Rich Amooi’s books is the array of supporting quirky characters like Bumper, Noah’s accident prone dog or serial dater Gertrude who only ever goes on a date with a man once.

And of course I loved the happy ending, which I’m a massive sucker for!

I felt there was a more serious tone to this novel than the previous ones I’ve read by Mr Amooi, maybe as it dealt with the death of a loved one and the grief that comes with it.

I’d recommend if you’re looking for a bit of an escape from this weird world then you can’t go wrong with It’s Raining Men.

About The Author:

Rich Amooi is the Amazon #1 Bestselling author of 15 romantic comedies, including It’s Not PMS, It’s You, Dying to Meet You, There’s Something About a Cowboy, and Madam Love, Actually.

#BookReview Suddenly Single by Carol Wyer

Title: Suddenly Single by Carol Wyer

Publisher: Canelo

Date Published: 8th April 2019

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Description:

Sometimes a change of scene is necessary to write the next scene…

When bestselling romance author Chloe Piper’s marriage implodes a week before Christmas, she flees her cheating ex and the village gossips for the solitude of the newly built Sunny Meadow Farm and the company of her hapless dog, Ronnie.

But Chloe is soon pushed out of her comfort zone. Because with a lively development building crew – headed up by charming Alex – and a larger-than-life neighbour determined to make Chloe’s love life her pet project, Chloe finds herself in a whole new world of chaos…

This enthralling romantic comedy of self-discovery and new beginnings is perfect for fans of Kirsty Greenwood, Colleen Coleman and Marian Keyes.

Review:

I want to thank Canelo for providing me with a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 

So I read a fab review back in July over at Zooloo’s Book Diary (you can read it here) and I remembered I too had a copy of this but it’s taken me until now to read it due to the worst reading slump I think I’ve ever had. As they say better late than never!

Chloe Piper is the unlikely author of a racy bestseller. She escapes from a cheating husband to settle in a converted farmhouse for what she thinks is some peace to work on her second novel. Unfortunately, writer’s block is getting the better of her. 

After a drunken night she signs up to a Singleton club run by her neighbours, Eleanor and Fairfax. The thought of going to the events terrifies her as her low self-esteem and social anxiety cripples her. Will she get out of her comfort zone and find the man she deserves? 

Suddenly Single is one of those fun light hearted reads but it also covers the serious topic of mental health, specifically social anxiety.

I really liked Chloe, I just warmed to her immediately. It was a real treat to watch her grow and believe in herself as the story progressed. I also loved her cheeky dog Ronnie, he stole the show occasionally through the story! 

I have to say I may not be single, but I’d love to go to the singletons club! They had so many fun events scattered throughout the novel I’d love to try! Of course, Coronavirus would prevent most of them now, but it was nice to live vicariously through the characters for a while. 

I wished there was a little more humour, probably a lot of it went over my head, but that’s just my opinion!

If you’re looking for a bit of escapism from the way the world is right now, I’d highly recommend Suddenly Single!

#Blogtour #Review A Wish For Jinnie by Audrey Davis @audbyname @rararesources

Title: A Wish For Jinnie by Audrey Davis

Date Published: 22nd June 2020

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Description:

What if wishes really could come true? 

When Jinnie Cooper is dumped by her fiancé, and exiled to a job in an antiques shop in a sleepy Scottish village, little does she know a battered old lamp is about to shake up her life. 

Genie Dhassim grants wishes. But he also wants a few of his own to come true. Letting him explore the outside world proves nerve-wracking as Dhassim has an uncanny knack of putting his pointy-slippered foot in it. 

As Jinnie grows closer to her employer Sam, Dhassim discovers his time on earth is running out. 

Can both Jinnie and Dhassim find true happiness? Or are those wishes that cannot be granted?

US – https://www.amazon.com/Wish-Jinnie-magical-romantic-difference-ebook/dp/B088HGYN8G/

Review:

I want to thank Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me on this tour and Audrey Davis for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I have been in a funk recently but when I picked up A Wish For Jinnie it cheered me right up!

As a child I had a bit of a love for all things genie. I used to watch repeats of a show called I Dream Of Jeannie and the Disney movie Aladdin, so when I saw the blurb for this book I thought yes I need to read that.

Jinnie wants a fresh start after her disaster of a relationship so she moves to the small town of Cranley. What she doesn’t bank on is finding her very own genie in a lamp! Will he help her find happiness or make her life into more of a disaster?

Audrey Davis has created such wonderful and lovable characters that when I finished this book I genuinely didn’t want to leave behind, even the genie Dhassim with his tendency to drive poor Jinnie a little nuts. 

This is one of those stories that just has everything you want in a rom com, humour, a heroine you root for and even moments that tug at the old heart strings.

There were a few parts of the story that I thought could be carried into a sequel but maybe that’s just wishful thinking on my part!

A Wish For Jinnie is a sweet, funny and uplifting story that is the perfect story to escape from the real world for a while.

About The Author:

Audrey Davis is a Scottish-born former journalist, now resident in Switzerland. Her newspaper career saw her cover events in Northern Ireland and the Falkland Islands, as well as working for a London-based movie magazine writing reviews and carrying out interviews.

#BookReview The Little Bookshop of Love Stories by Jaimie Admans

Title: The Little Bookshop of Love Stories by Jaimie Admans

Date Published: 8th May 2020

Publisher: HQ Digital

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Description:

Today is the Mondayest Monday ever. Hallie Winstone has been fired – and it wasn’t even her fault!

Having lost her job and humiliated herself in front of a whole restaurant full of diners, this is absolutely, one hundred percent, the worst day of her life.

That is until she receives an email announcing that she is the lucky winner of the Once Upon a Page Bookshop!

Owning a bookshop has always been Hallie’s dream, and when she starts to find secret love letters on the first pages of every book, she knows she’s stumbled across something special.

Things get even better when she meets gorgeous, bookish Dimitri and between them, they post a few of the hidden messages online, reuniting people who thought they were lost forever.

But maybe it’s time for Hallie to find her own happy-ever-after, too? 

Review:

I want to thank TBC reviewer request group and the author for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I don’t know about you but as an ardent bookaholic, it would be my dream to own a bookshop so I thought when I read the synopsis for The Little Bookshop of Love Stories I thought I’d give it a go!

Hallie must be the unluckiest person, losing her job, having the flatmate from hell and a mum hellbent on matching her up with random strangers. That’s until she wins a fading bookshop changing her life forever.

The Little Bookshop of Love Stories is a sweet and romantic story that will give you all the awws! 

Hallie is a fun character that I just really rooted for her to get her happily ever after. I also like Dimitri, the clumsy yet endearing artist who I won’t deny I have a little literary crush on.

I did struggle a little in the middle of this book, I feel it lost a bit of steam and frankly I found her overbearing mother a little much but apart from those minor things I will definitely be on the lookout for more from Jaimie Admans. 

If you love both books and love stories I would highly recommend you give The Little Bookshop of Love Stories a read! 

About The Author:

Jaimie is a 32-year-old English-sounding Welsh girl with an awkward-to-spell name. She lives in South Wales and enjoys writing, gardening, watching horror movies, and drinking tea, although she’s seriously considering marrying her coffee machine.

#BookReview Swipe Right by Stephie Chapman @imcountingufoz @BOTBSPublicity @HeraBooks #BlogTour

Title: Swipe Right by Stephie Chapman

Date Published: 13th May 2020

Publisher: Hera Books

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Description:

Love could be a click away… Or in the last place you expected.

When Fran meets Ollie, it’s eye roll at first sight. Who does he think he is – with his Ray-Bans, piss taking and artfully styled hair? Forced into working together at Viral Hive, the trendy media content agency, at first they butt heads, but soon realise that they could be BFFs. Fran’s happily settled with boyfriend Lucas, while Ollie is fully committed to girlfriend Lou.

But when Fran’s relationship crumbles, and Ollie sets off with Lou for a round-the-world trip, she decides to start an anonymous dating column, detailing all the perils of dating online – from the bloke who angrily demanded she share the bill when she refused his clumsy advances, to the one that ended their date by weeping into her cleavage – even if it seems that all the good (or even normal?) men are hiding. Maybe there aren’t plenty more fish in the sea?

But, on her dating journey of discovery, Fran’s about to learn that sometimes love can be where you least expect it… you just have to put down your phone.

This hilarious romantic comedy is When Harry Met Sally for the Tinder age – will make you laugh and cry! Perfect for fans of Mhairi MacFarlane, Lucy Vine and Sophie Ranald.

Swipe Right

Review:

I want to thank Sarah at Books On The Bright Side Publicity for inviting me on this tour and Hera books for providing me with a copy of Swipe Right in exchange for an honest review.

I knew when I saw that this novel was a take on Harry Met Sally but brought right up to date, I had to read it as I loved that film!

Swipe Right is a modern love story with likeable but flawed characters.

It’s very much a book of two halves. The first half we meet Fran and Ollie who are obviously meant to be together but each have something standing in their way. Fran an obnoxious boyfriend and Ollie a standoffish girlfriend. The second half you get to see Fran’s disastrous yet hilarious dating journey.

To me, Fran was Bridget Jones type of character. She swears, she drinks, she has trouble standing up for herself but you can’t help rooting for her. Then we have Ollie, he comes across as a little arrogant and overconfident but underneath you can tell he’s a bit of a sweetheart.

I loved the way that Fran and Ollie’s relationship grows throughout the story. They start off as candidates vying for the same position, to friendship, to something much more…there’s definitely no insta love in this story!

I wish there had been a few more funny moments, specifically in the first half of the book but that’s just me being picky.

Swipe Right is a sweet and engaging story and a must if you like a more modern take on classic rom coms.

About The Author:

Stephie was born in England in the mid 1980s, which makes her thirty-something (but Steph_Chapmanif you ask, she’ll probably tell you she’s 27). Now, she lives on the South coast of the UK, has a day job to keep her holiday budget topped up, and two kids and a husband to keep an eye on.

Silly Love Song

Title: Just Another Silly Love Song by Rich Amooi

Date Published: 29th April 2020

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Description:

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?

Review:

I want to thank Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me on this tour and providing me with a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

I really needed something that would make me smile right now and just another silly love song did just that! Genuinely people kept asking me what I was grinning at while I was reading it.

Lori is a late night radio show host who plays love songs and dedications, dishing out positivity but she finds herself in quite a pickle after she’s not only dumped on air but loses her job in the same night!

In desperate need of a job, she takes the only one available opposite the no-nonsense and brash Ben Baxter aka Dr. Tough Love. Lori thinks it’s never going to work out, they’re complete opposites but sparks begin to fly and it turns into something neither of them expected.

This book just gave me all the awws, with lovable characters, cute moments and that all important sweet ending.

I also loved Grandma Joyce, Lori’s sassy eighty year old grandmother who sounds like she’d be fun to hang out with.

Just another silly love song is a pure joy to read and I’m a little sad now I’ve finished it. I can’t wait to see what Rich Amooi comes up with next!
