*BLOG TOUR* Happily Never After – Emma Robinson ★★★★★

Blurb; Rory closed her eyes. Think with your head. Your heart can’t be trusted. Life is not a fairytale…

Rory doesn’t believe in love. She’s got far too many real problems to deal with.

She’s just bought a tumbledown house. Her mother is generally behaving like a wicked witch, insisting on calling her Aurora, and generally interfering in her (admittedly pitiful lack of) love life. And her 16-year-old daughter has finally grown out of Disney princesses and discovered dating…

But Rory’s adamant that she doesn’t need saving. In fact, the only thing she’s wishing on a star for is a bit of practical help. However, when she meets a builder whose name is John Prince and who seems to be in the habit of rescuing her (right down to finding her lost shoe one evening) she might have to face a truth as uncomfortable as hobbling home barefoot – that maybe there’s something enchanted in the air.

Her mother, daughter and friends are convinced her prince has come, but Rory just wishes everyone could let it go. Especially when she hears a story that makes her question whether he is really the hero everyone thinks he is…

My Review; OH EM GEE. WOW! After reading Emma’s debut The Undercover Mother, this was a must read for me. Boy was this bloody brilliant! Very impressed. I loved every second of reading Happily Never After. A must buy. A must read. You will not be disappointed at all.

This story had me laughing out loud throughout. I fell in love with all of the characters especially Rory with her strong determination and will. She is a very relatable character at times and a hardworked, overtired teacher… Which I can relate to, been there, done that. But phewwww. Did it just get hot in here? That John Prince character sounds the dream doesn’t he? Getting me all hot and bothered. A real life little hero! Phew.

I devoured this way too quickly within a day and now have to wait till her next book. Sigh. But I already know it will be a belter. Happily Never After is an easy read, fast paced and hilarious story for all chick-lit, romance lovers. A well deserved five stars. Highly recommend if you need cheering up and diving into someone else’s crazy world, it worked for me. Perfect. Outstanding. Just what I needed. Thank you Emma.

*BLOG BLITZ* The Third Rule – Andrew Barrett ★★★★

Blurb; When you’re accused of murder, you’d better hide, run, or fight.
The Third Rule is England’s new infallible capital punishment. But absolute proof of guilt is no longer required, so there’s a queue at the Slaughter House doors.
CSI Eddie Collins hasn’t killed anyone, but he knows who has. That’s why he’s on the Slaughter House list, and when a government hunter tracks him down, Eddie has to fight or die.
“If you want to kill serious crime, you have to kill serious criminals.”
Sir George Deacon, Minster of Justice.

My Review; The Third Rule is book number one in the upcoming Eddie Collins series. Now I must admit at just over 600 pages long it felt a little daunting as I don’t usually read thick books due to not much time. However, it didn’t take me as long as I thought to finish it.

Firstly, I found the opening to the story very rushed, introducing all the characters and their stories all at once which was a bit overwhelming at first. However, the story then slows into each characters story making it clearer for the reader to understand.

The Third Rule is action packed with drugs, crime, politics and death. I found myself slowly getting absorbed into the story and I was hooked after a while. I raced through it. In the end I enjoyed the story and look forward to the rest of this series.

This is a book that will most likely split the readers views about ‘the third rule’. I do understand the concept of the third rule but I wouldn’t say I was for it as many people can be framed for crime and killings leading to false imprisonment. On the other hand I do believe it would work for certain types of criminals, would deter criminals and as a result we would see the level of crime drop drastically.

I awarded a fair four stars and would highly recommend this book! But I did warn you it was a long book.. Other than that a perfect story I was caught up in. Bring on book two!

*BLOG TOUR* The Perfect Friend – Barbara copperthwaite ★★★★★

Blurb; She’ll do anything for you…

My name is Alex, and my world has been shattered.
My husband has left me.
My children won’t speak to me.
My friend Carrie is the only person I have.
She’s the only one I can trust to keep all my secrets.
She’d never do anything to let me down.
Would she?

My Review; OMG. Holy poop. Well I did not expect any of that at all. Bloody brilliant. Very shocked. This is a sleep stealer of a book. A belter. I would urge you all to add this to your lists ASAP.

Alex isn’t the only one with secrets is she? I was literally hooked. I devoured it. I loved every second of it. An easy to read, fast paced story for all to enjoy. Plenty of twists and turns throughout for the reader to endure. I can’t praise this book enough. A well deserved five stars from me. Highly recommend. I won’t give any spoilers but I would urge you to all go and treat yourselves to this awsome story. You won’t regret it. An upcoming bestseller right here, an author to keep an eye on. Very impressed.
