You, Me and Us By Liam Hurley

You, Me and Us By Liam Hurley

liam hurley

“F*** you for breaking my f***ing heart…” This is the heart-breaking yet hilarious story of Jimmy Rowland and Erin Poppet. Jimmy Rowland has the perfect life. He works in his favourite bar by day, and by night he lives his dream with his two best friends in his band. Erin Poppet crashes into Jimmy’s life like a beautiful storm.

He falls in love with her as quickly and as deeply as possible. The intensity of their relationship leaves Jimmy with a broken heart, a useless vacuum and a demon inside him. Jimmy’s dream life quickly becomes a nightmare when he loses his dream job and destroys his musical career live on stage.

When he hits rock bottom, he decides he only has one choice, to rebuild his life from scratch. He has to get back the life he had before Erin. This is her story. This is his story. This is their story. Or as Jimmy would say… “… this is the story of You, Me and Us.”

My Thoughts:

I liked reading about Jimmy’s Journey. Yes there are swear words in this story but it kind of makes it even though I am not keen on them there are only a few Liam uses but it works. The book is divided into three sections, you, me and us. So we get to hear Jimmy’s, Erin’s and when they were in a relationship side. I think this story tells you not too jump in too quick to a relationship, enjoy what you have in the moment. For a debut novel it is written well.

I received an advanced reading copy of this book for an honest review.

The Anti Ageing Food and Fitness Plan By Rick Hay

The Anti Ageing Food and Fitness Plan By Rick Hay

rick

Now in its second edition! Tune up, tone up and rev up with an inspired but easy-to-follow twelve-week healthy eating plan that unlocks the remarkable power of superfoods, and high-intensity exercises, for all fitness levels. Bewildered by Açai berries and confused by kefir? The growing trend for embracing the nutritional force of so-called superfoods has left many of us unsure where to start -and what to eat.

Whether you’re looking to lose weight or embrace a healthier lifestyle, smart nutrition and increased levels of activity are essential to reach long-term goals and experience the greatest health benefits. Blending the very latest scientific and nutritional research with delicious eating and work out plans and sumptuous photography, The Anti Ageing Food and Fitness Plan by Ideal World TV’s resident Health and Fitness expert, Rick Hay, targets ageing and fitness at a cellular level to promote a sustainable diet and general wellbeing that will help anyone to change their lives for the better.

Rick’s twelve-week plan recommends mouth-watering, easy-to-prepare and nutrient-dense meals and snacks that deliver the required vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients to optimise digestive function, and pairs these recipes perfectly with a work out routine consisting of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) to burn calories and gentler stretching practices to help relax muscles. The first four weeks have been designed to recalibrate the body using a diet primarily consisting of plant-based proteins.

This Tune Up phase is followed by Rev Up, which takes readers up to week eight, introducing thermogenic spices to boost metabolism. The final four Tone Up weeks primarily focus on weight management and increasing strength by ramping up exercise. Also included are Hay’s tips and tricks for the best superfood and nutrient combinations to help maintain results once the programme has been completed.

The Anti Ageing Food and Fitness Plan is not purely about nutrient density, losing weight and getting ripped; it’s a sustainable philosophy which allows readers to revitalise their minds and bodies, with a food and fitness plan designed to maximise health and wellbeing. This accessible and effective programme helps to demystify the superfood arena, enabling us all to eat and live well by making every delicious and nutritious mouthful count.

My Thoughts:

I found this book informative and well written. It has different recipes that you can try and shows you step by step how to do the exercises and they are not complicated either. There is a section at the back of the book that goes into more detail about Superfoods, I found this section helpful as it also explains what foods we should eat to help with energy, digestion, bloating and a few more. A well informed handy book.

Dating Daisy By DaisyMae_224

Dating Daisy By DaisyMae_224

dating daisy

Daisy Mae has finally left her horrible husband after decades of unfulfilling marriage. Ready to embark on a new liberated life of adventure and fun, it dawns on Daisy that the last time she was asked out on a date was in the 80s, long before Whatsapp, Tinder, Happn and Bumble arrived; all meaningless words to Daisy’s frankly middle-aged ears.

As a sexual health doctor Daisy Mae, more than most, has reason to be cautious about throwing herself headfirst into 21st century dating. With guidance and encouragement from her seventeen-year-old daughter Imogen, her surrogate parents with a swanky house and swimming pool known fondly as The Amigos, and her friends Pinky and Jeannie, a nonagenarian who sends her insightful relationship tips from her nursing home, Daisy joins an online dating site in the hope that romance will swiftly follow.

But dating in the age of selfies and social media isn’t easy, and what begins as an innocent foray soon unravels in spectacular fashion. Daisy had not expected that she’d have to decode tech-speak (did you know 531 meant sex?), endure mortifying first dates with men who look nothing like their profiles, and be on the receiving end of an unwanted barrage of explicit photographs.

Is the price of finding love online too high? Or can Daisy Mae swipe her way to success?

My Thoughts:

This is the story of Daisy Mae and her experiences of online dating. There are parts that are amusing but I didn’t feel as though I enjoyed it as much as I should of done. I felt as though the ending was rushed and I was not keen on the way she kept on saying ‘ here’s the things’.

The Worst Case Scenario Cookery Club By Chrissie Manby

The Worst Case Scenario Cookery Club By Chrissie Manby

chrisse

In the quaint seaside town of Newbay, a beginner’s cookery course is starting. And three very different students have signed up…

Liz‘s husband has left her for a twenty-something clean-eating blogger, and she’s determined to show the world – and her daughter – she’s just as capable in the kitchen. John, newly widowed after fifty years of marriage, can’t live on sympathy lasagnes forever. To thirty-year-old workaholic Bella, the course is a welcome escape from her high-pressure job. Their only common ground: between them, they can barely boil an egg!

Enter talented chef Alex, who is determined to introduce his pupils to the comforts of cuisine. As Liz, John and Bella encounter various disasters in the kitchen, the unlikely trio soon form a fast friendship. Their culinary skills might be catastrophic – but could the cookery club have given them a recipe for happiness?

My Thoughts:

I always find that Chrissie’s books are feel good and can always raise quite a few laughs. This book was brilliant, it had everything I wanted, a good storyline, great characters and lots of laughs. Some of the things Liz gets up to are really funny. I liked the fact we hear all three of the cooking courses students stories, some of them are sad but how the cookery course helps them is just magical. I would definitely recommend this read.

Orphan X By Gregg Hurwitz

Orphan X By Gregg Hurwitz

orphan x

‘Do you need my help?’
It was the first question he asked.
They called him when they had nowhere else to turn.

As a boy Evan Smoak was taken from an orphanage.
Raised and trained in a top secret programme, he was sent to bad places to do things the government denied ever happened.

Then he broke with the programme, using what he’d learned to vanish. Now he helps the desperate and deserving.

But someone’s on his trail.

Someone who knows his past and believes that the boy once known as Orphan X must die . . .

My Thoughts:

I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book. It is fast paced and gripping. I found it a really unusual storyline I think that is why I was drawn into reading it, there is quite a bit of information about different types of guns which didn’t really interest me but on the whole I did enjoy it. I look forward to reading more from Gregg Hurwitz.

Christmas Secrets in Snowflake Cove: Volume 1 (Michaelmas Bay) By Emily Harvale

Christmas Secrets in Snowflake Cove: Volume 1 (Michaelmas Bay) By Emily Harvale

emily

Christmas is a time for family and friends, miracles and magic, falling snow and roaring fires, fun, laughter and festive feasts. In Snowflake Cove, it’s also a time for secrets to be revealed… Evie Starr is hoping for more than a sprinkling of magic this Christmas.

The family-run Snowflake Inn is virtually empty and the Starr’s financial future isn’t looking bright. But Evie’s gran, Jessie has a secret that might help. Enigmatic, Zachary Thorn is every woman’s dream. He’s also ex-SAS, so his secrets are classified. The Christmas Special of his feel-good, TV show is set in Michaelmas Bay – until a phone call means he’s spending Christmas in nearby Snowflake Cove.

Evie’s best friend, Juniper thinks boyfriend Darren has a secret. Evie knows he does. And Evie’s niece, Raven is hiding feelings for Juniper’s brother – who has a secret crush of his own. But the biggest secret in Snowflake Cove is the identity of Raven’s dad.

With snow falling thick and fast and secrets being revealed one after another, will everyone be snuggling up by the fire on Christmas Eve, or are some secrets best kept hidden…?

My Thoughts:

If you haven’t read one of Emily’s books before why not? They are utterly brilliant. They have romance, friends, family and hot guys, what’s more great is this one is set around Christmas. I loved getting to know the characters and I liked the sound of Zach quite a lot. A brilliant Christmas read that will get you in the Christmas spirit.
