Thank you Rebekah for this guest post and offering us this free download.

I am very excited to share this post with you. As most of you will be aware, I have published my latest book ‘The Bulletproof Proposal’.

This is my second book and I decided to write a novelette. I love the idea of a short story, the reader can enjoy it in one or two sittings, fitting it in around their hectic lifestyles. 

The idea for ‘The Bulletproof Proposal’ came when a close friend of mine was waiting for her partner to propose. I thought about what someone might do in that situation and I think most people would try and gain control, giving rise to the idea for my new book.

This story was an exciting piece for me to write. I took on Lisa’s character with ease as she was fun to write about (I think I could also see some of myself in her). Authors will tell you to write about a topic that you would want to read yourself and this is a book that I would want to snuggle up with. 

I also love the cover, which I had great fun designing, and I am guilty of choosing a book by its cover, so I hope it will attract you too. My wonderful husband put together the book trailer and I think it is a wonderful teaser of what’s to come.

 ‘The Bulletproof Proposal’ was published in November 2017, and my hope is that you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I loved writing it. Please leave a review if you liked it, on either Amazon or Goodreads, and tell your friends and family about it, it would be much appreciated.

After five years of dating Lisa is anticipating that all-important question, will you marry me? Impatient, Lisa decides to take matters into her own hands and propose to Matt, after all it is the 21st Century.

Only she takes it one step further and with the help of her best friend Mandy, she prepares the ultimate proposal.

#Valentine. Book Review: The Boy in the BookShop by Katey Lovell.

#Valentine. Book Review: The Boy in the BookShop by Katey Lovell.

For Valentines weekend, here is a book review of a soppy sweet romantic short story. There are a few of these ‘Meet Cute’ series. I decided to pick up this one first, as the idea of it being in a bookshop appealed to me.

BOY IN BOOKSHOP

Description:

Every Happily Ever After began with a Once Upon a Time…

It takes a lot to distract Jade from her books. But from the moment she spots Marwan browsing the shelves, she can’t concentrate on anything else…

A gorgeously romantic short story, part of The Meet Cute series.


 

My Thoughts:

This book is a very short story, it is basically girl meets boy, girl fancies boy blah blah. I am disappointed to say that I wasn’t impressed with this book. 

I found the main female character Jade a bit annoying. She sounded a bit contradictory to me. She says she has sworn off men as she as been hurt too many times before, but then says:

“I knew he was trustworthy as I looked into those eyes. They were the eyes of an honest man.” – but this was before she had spoken to him?? Really?! 

Jade is very into her books though, and I was hoping that based in a bookshop, there would be lots of descriptive words about books, the shop and the guy. I did like Jade’s thoughts about books, and the Author did write her well as a book lover.

“I love old books. I like to imagine who they might have belonged to, if they were read on a train, or a beach, or in front of a roaring log fire..”

I guess this is the kind of short story you might have a quick read of when you have a spare five minutes. I did like the Author’s style of writing, I just found this particular story a bit pointless. I don’t think I will be reading anymore of the ‘Meet Cute series. However, if I found a full length book by the Author, I would give it a go.

I would love to hear your Valentine reads? Have you read this or any of the other ‘Meet Cute’ books? What did you think?

HAPPY READING!
