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?

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.

#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.

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.

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.

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!

Its Not PMSKindle

Title: It’s not PMS it’s you by Rich Amooi

Date Published: 31st October 2019

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Description:

Ruth “Ruthless” Harper is on the verge of becoming managing partner at her all-male consulting firm and she won’t let anything stand in her way. That includes men, relationships, and that dreaded F word, FEELINGS—distractions she eliminated long ago.

After the worst day ever (a near-death experience and a public wedgie, for starters), Ruth realizes she doesn’t want to live and die alone. She puts together a business plan to find the perfect man and dives head first into the murky online dating pool. All she wants is a high-powered executive who understands how important her career is. If only it were that easy.

Problem is most men are intimidated by Ruth’s confidence and shocked by her bluntness. The exception being her landscape designer, Nick, whose cool demeanor and unsolicited dating advice are driving her nuts. He’s the antithesis of the business-oriented man Ruth envisions for herself, so why do all signs keep pointing back to him?

Its Not PMS Its You Full Tour Banner

Review:

I read one of Rich Amooi books, There’s Something About A Cowboy, earlier this year and I just enjoyed it so much that when I saw the title for this one, I was just like ‘yes I must read that!’ After reading it’s not PMS it’s you, he is definitely one of my must read rom-com authors now.

Ruth is a workaholic who doesn’t care much about anything else but getting to the top and staying there. After a near death experience she decides she wants someone in her life. Her friend/assistant Dee helps her get back into the dating pool but why can’t she stop thinking about the handsome yet annoying gardener Nick?

It’s not PMS it’s you is full of dating disasters, lighthearted mayhem and plenty of aww moments that can’t help but make you smile even after you’ve finished it. After reading so much crime fiction it’s nice to read a book that is a little more light hearted.

What I liked about this story was the fact that our heroine is Ruth the workaholic, obsessed with her career, in my experience this is usually the male character who’s like this. Truthfully, at first I didn’t find Ruth all that likeable, a little bit up herself to be honest, but I warmed to her as the story went along.

It’s not PMS it’s you is a fun read that will give you all those warm fuzzy feelings that a good rom-com should!
