The Indecent Proposal


Title: The Indecent Proposal
Author: Louise Marley 
Published: 18th June 2014
My Rating: 4/5
Recommend: Yes/No
Synopsis:


When Megan sees a photo of her rock star boyfriend Ryan with another girl, she dumps him and heads off to Sorrento on holiday. Unfortunately Ryan’s had exactly the same idea… 

The Indecent Proposal is an 8,000 word short story which should take about thirty minutes to read. It is a romantic comedy.





Awww...what a short sweet story. My only complaint is I wish it was longer or at least tell us a little bit more about what happens to Megan and Ryan.

Megan is writer, she just so happens to stumble on one picture of Ryan with a girl and then turns in to a frenzy, she believes every gossip site and news instead of talking to Ryan (thinking that he had cheated on her). Ryan I was surprised to find out is actually very sweet, he loves Megan with all his heart and tries to win her back.

Unknown to both of them, Gina sets them both up in her hometown in Sorrento, obviously Megan has no idea of this. I really loved Gina and Luca, they were both level headed, strong and how good friends supposed to be. Luca oozes with hotness and Gina oozes with beauty and confidence. 

Although I was pleased with the ending, I would have liked a bit more twists and turns to have happened. I felt like this was a bit too easy for them just to end up together engaged, I did feel sorry for Ryan when Megan would just ignore him but I also felt the need that he needed to do more.

When First They Met



Title: When First They Met
Author: Debbie Macomber 
Published: 18th July 2015
My Rating: 4/5
Recommend: Yes/No
Synopsis:

Debbie Macomber’s Blossom Street and Cedar Cove series have won thousands of fans, thanks to her signature blend of heartfelt romance, delightful humor, and warm wisdom. Now, in this original short story available exclusively as an eBook, Macomber shares a sneak peek into her new series set in Cedar Cove, which features Jo Marie, before she becomes the owner of the beloved Rose Harbor Inn.
 
From the moment Jo Marie sits next to Paul inside the Seattle Seahawks’ stadium, she feels a spark. Paul’s striking blue eyes and kind smile tell her that he’s someone special—different from any man she’s met before. When they strike up a conversation, Jo Marie and Paul realize how much they have in common, yet there’s one thing keeping them from a fairy-tale ending: Paul is in the military and will ship out of Seattle within the next six weeks. As Jo Marie wonders if she should once again open her heart, she decides that, no matter the stakes, she can’t forgo her chance at true love.
 
Includes an excerpt from Debbie Macomber's Last One Home.


Hmm..I am not sure how I feel about this book, I actually fell in love with both Jo and Paul. For both of them it is love at first sight, they have this instant chemistry just with their eyes connecting with one another.

I love how confident Paul is, he isn't afraid to go after what he wants. He is kind, compassionate, caring and funny. It is actually quite surprising how alike Jo and Paul are. Jo never believed she would fall in love, let alone marry but that all changes when she meets Paul. I really loved learning them learning about each other and before you know one thing leads to another. Unfortunately for Jo, Paul is in the military which limits how much time they can spend with each other but their love for each other never wavers. 

It was the ending that did it for me although it is a happy one, when I turned the page and saw the synopsis for the next book it broke my heart. After throughly enjoying this short book, I was devastated to find out what happens to Paul. I was originally going to continue with reading this series but now I am not so sure. I really loved Paul.

Three Men and a Maybe


Title: Three Men and a Maybe 
Author: Katy Lovell
Published: 9th December 2016
My Rating: 3/5
Recommend: Yes/No
Synopsis:


A free short story…the perfect treat for yourself this Christmas 
It’s the age-old saying. You wait all day for a bus, and then three come along at once. But proposals? That’s just ridiculous. And yet, on New Year’s Eve, as the countdown finishes and the whole pub erupts in celebrations, Cerys finds herself staring at her ex-fiancĂ©, Ricky. Who just so happens to be kneeling on the floor, ring in hand, asking her to marry him. Again.
And if that weren’t enough, hot barman Angelo, and longtime friend Huw also decide to pop the question. At the exact same time.
Three men, two real contenders, but just one choice. What on earth will she do?


Honestly when I first got this book I really thought it was similar to Three Men and a baby, not maybe (honest mistake right?) but when I started reading it, I obviously found out that it has nothing to do with a baby more like one girl and three proposals. This should be a lesson for me to learn for next time reading the synopsis carefully. 

Cerys is not looking forward to new year, but she is dragged along to a bar with her friends anyways. Unknown to her, she finds herself with three guys asking for her hand but the question remains who will she choose? Her ex fiancé, one of her best friends or Angelo the barman?

This takes place in three different points of her life; it tells of her life when she was engaged to Ricky and how because of his actions it destroyed their relationship, Huw who has always been her best friend and protector (she secretly had a crush on him when they were younger) and how she meets Angelo. In the end, I was surprised with her choice but I can say she made the right one (one that ends with a maybe). Like Cerys every girl deserves to be with someone who treats them right and like a queen.

A great, short read.

Birthday Blaze



Title: Birthday Blaze
Author: Kacey Shea
Published: 5th December 2016
My Rating: 3/5
Recommend: Yes/No
Synopsis:

Brennan O’Shea might be every woman’s dream. 
Gorgeous. 
Single. 
Built like a tank and inked to perfection.
A fireman. Really, what else is there?
Yeah, he’s a fantasy brought to life if only it weren’t for one little problem. Okay, it’s a big one. He can’t talk to women. The more attractive the lady, the more words fail him. And his beautiful, friendly neighbor Jenny has Brennan lusting for more than chatty banter. Will a birthday wish give him a shot with the woman he wants? Or will his hopes go up in flames?

Birthday Blaze originally appeared in the Amazon bestselling charity anthology Hook & Ladder 69. This short story is a fun, sexy read that showcases Kacey’s humorous story-telling and colorful characters.




Brennan has everything, good looks, hot body and good job but one thing he lacks is the girl he is in love with. He never seems to be able to coherently say one sentence in front of her. I found this very amusing since most guys would ooze with confidence but then again this goes to show you should never judge a book by its cover.

I loved his relationship with his sister Emily, it was sooooo open and I do mean way open she literally had no filter or any boundaries but that is what I loved most about her. It brought a little humour to the book.

Brennan finally decides to take charge on his birthday with a romantic dinner with Jenny, things don't go to plan as an ex girl friend decides to pay him a visit (she really just doesn't any hints does she?).
