Guest Post and #Freebook. ‘The Bulletproof Proposal’ by Rebekah Louise.

Guest Post and #Freebook. ‘The Bulletproof Proposal’ by Rebekah Louise.

Today, I am excited to share with you a guest post by a lovely and talented Author – Rebekah Louise. Rebekah has written two books. (both reviewed and loved here on ChocolatePages!). I reviewed ‘The Bulletproof Proposal’ yesterday where I told you that today the book will be available for a free download! It sure is, so get downloading now. 


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.

What she doesn’t know is whether this will be the beginning of her happily-ever- after or the beginning of the end.

Book Review: ‘The Bullet Proof Proposal’ by Rebekah Louise. ( A Novelette).

Book Review: ‘The Bullet Proof Proposal’ by Rebekah Louise. ( A Novelette).

Rebekah Louise is the Author of a previous book of short stories that I have reviewed HERE!. Rebekah wrote a book which included 5 short stories called ‘Love, Life and Dreams’. I enjoyed Rebekah’s first book so when she asked me to read and review her new novelette, I was very pleased to do so. The Bulletproof Proposal is a short but packed story. I really enjoyed the escapism reading of it. Thank you Rebekah for my copy.

If you like the sound of it, (and why wouldn’t you!), then its your lucky day because tomorrow (February 14th 2018 ), especially for Valentines Day, Rebekah is offering free e copies of The Bulletproof Proposal. I have a guest post from the Author herself tomorrow, so watch out for that and the links to get the book.



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.

What she doesn’t know is whether this will be the beginning of her happily ever after or the beginning of the end.

My Thoughts:

What a fun and easy to read story. This was perfect for reading after a hard day at work. It is short enough to read in one sitting or like me, you could break it into two.

Lisa takes a gamble on her relationship. Being the impatient modern woman that she is, she doesn’t want to wait to be asked that all important question. She wants to know they will be together forever now. So Lisa prepares to most extraordinary proposal that you can imagine.

Between Lisa, her best friend and her Mum, they make and prepare a plan that sounds crazy at first ( and for quite a large part of the planning of it). But this is the fictional world that Rebekah Louise has created for our entertainment and she does it so well.

I had no idea if this spectacular plan was going to work for Lisa? But it was enjoyable to watch it play out and see where it would end.

Will Lisa become a happily married? Or will her plan bring egg on her face? Read The Bulletproof Proposal to find out.

Happy Valentine’s Day.

Happy Valentine’s Day to you. I hope you have a lovely day whether you are spending it with your someone special, or you are loving yourself and / or your friends and family. Although, this day has been slated a lot as materialistic and for the shops / restaurants to go crazy and inflate prices, it is also a nice day to feel cared for and loved. I hope you all enjoy, and what a bonus its on a Saturday! 

I hope to do some reading and blogging in the day and spend some quality time with Hubby tonight. ♥

So, I wanted to let you know that I have downloaded some fabulous Valentine’s Day books. Here they are, and I will also tell you my thoughts about them. I will do that in a different post though, as this one is just to show the books. And wish you a lovely day!

The first one:

‘The Valentine Free Zone’, by Fiona Gibson.

A laugh-out-loud Valentine’s read, perfect for fans of ‘Outnumbered’ and Fern Britton.

This is available on Amazon now for only 49p!

I have already read this and it was really good, so I shall write my review on this in my next post.

The next one is:

The only rescuer for miles around is her grumpy, laconic – and piping hot – neighbour, Dave Jenkins. Before long, Molly and Dave have struck enough sparks to bring the fire department running. Now the question is, Does Molly still want to be rescued? Or is she exactly where she wants to be?

This one is available FREE on Amazon now! Grab it now!

Next is:

Cupid on the Loose! by numerous Authors.

A collection of ten contemporary chick lit short stories set around Valentine’s Day.

Cupid is on the loose and anything could happen, as ten of his targets are about to find out. Will they find love or wave it goodbye? If their man goes down on one knee, will they say yes or no? If an old flame suddenly appears, will it start a fire or fizzle out? Read on and find out…

Stories included:

* All the World’s a Page by Jennifer Gilby Roberts

* Miss Understanding in the Ballroom with the Wrench by Geralyn Corcillo

* The Wonder of India by Julie Farrell

* Vodka and Chocolate Hearts by Jean Oram

* Cupid, with a Eucalyptus Tree, in the Teachers’ Workroom by Amy Gettinger

I really like short stories, I think they are good for satisfying short reads, but they are also a good way to find new authors that you like.

Well, I’m off for some Valentine reading. Let me know if you are going to or have already read these books and if you have any more recommendations, please let me know.

Have a lovely day!
