“I’m stubborn. And headstrong. And I’ve just survived the worst three years of my life. After escaping an abusive boyfriend to live in hostels and cheap hotels while I worked my way across Europe, I’ve come to two conclusions.

The first? Now that I’m back home, I’m going to squander my expensive culinary degree on a food truck that caters to the late night drunk crowd.”

If you love hipster, food truck culture you will love this novel. On the flip side, if you love a bit of steamy and high pressure kitchen relationships this is also the book for you.

It is two sides of the coin of the restaurant industry and the relationship dynamic between both of the main character makes for a witty and brilliant, romance with depth.

The back and forth between the two main characters was hilarious.

One word: Salt

If you liked the film ‘Chef’, I would recommend this book.

5/5

Review: Trial by Moon by Lizzy Ford (Trial Series) 5/5

This book is seriously a dripfeed of a minefield of a thickly woven intriguing plot. (Gosh! So many words)

The main character is a flawed but real woman who has been raised to alone due to her duty as a Kingmaker. A family that choses the next Supernatural Community leader. Leslie must go through trials with three prospective men. One she must mate, one she must choose to lead the community, and one she must choose to exile.

This book is intense. Brilliant. With such heightened emotion and the relationships between the characters are complex and well developed. The way the Lizzy Ford writes a plot is seamless. Like the main character, we learn what is happening as we go. Nothing is predictable.

The first book in the series is free, but I had to purchase the rest. Trial by moon is such an amazing, straight out of the box introduction to this series.

5/5

Review: 5/5 Worth it by S.M Shade and C.M Owens

Three unruly friends.
A wedding we shouldn’t have been invited to.
Two unexpected romances.
A scoop of sexy.
And a double scoop of chaos.

I don’t think I have read a book that has made me laugh out loud as many times as this one. With an amputee’s nano-controlled arm going wild, to pranking the groom by locking him in a porta-potty. Honestly, I would hate for these women to come to my wedding, but I would love to be friends with them!

This is a laugh a minute, character driven book that is so beautifully hilarious that if you read it in public, you WILL get funny looks.

Brilliant read! Would recommend to anyone and everyone. 5/5

Review: Pennies by Pepper Winters (Dollar Series – Book 1) 5/5

 

Buy on amazon here:

At eighteen years old, I was murdered.

I wish my tale ended there.

However, my killer resuscitated me and sold me to the highest bidder, sentencing me to a world worse than Hell.

For the past two years, I’ve lived a life of torment as a man’s property. I suffer in silence and wish for freedom, but I never break.

I can’t.

I won’t.

But then he arrives.

The first stranger since I was killed.

Earlier this month, I helped unveil the new cover look for the Dollar series by Pepper Winters. Which is, in my opinion, one of her best works to date. So much so, that I had to pre-order the entire series after I finished the first book, which is something I almost never do.

It wasn’t until I sat back, emotionally exhausted and triumphant (no spoilers!) at the end of Pennies, that I realised that the lead character was as silent as a mouse for almost the entire novel. I was in awe of this writer. Having a character that can’t speak is the most intriguing and difficult feat to accomplish without falling on clichés (like telepathy etc).

Pepper Winters has created an amazingly strong female character in Pimlico. This series is darkness personified.

5/5
