Chasing Ginger: A Steamy BBW Billionaire Rom Com (Misfits Series Book 1) By Marie Lavender

Chasing Ginger: A Steamy BBW Billionaire Rom Com (Misfits Series Book 1) By Marie Lavender

Chased by a group of angry men. Saved by quite a hunk.

This is not the résumé Ginger Halloway ever imagined having. But thanks to a miracle pill, which makes her size 22 body instantly sexy, that’s what happened.

Yet, now Lance Franklin is showing interest in her, and she can’t figure out if he really likes her for her, or if it’s just because of a bizarre drug.

And her wild bunch of friends, The Misfits…well, they’re always getting her into some interesting situations.

So, yep, business as usual. Except for the guy. What the hell should she do about him?

As for Lance, he believes he’s lucky to have found Ginger. But can he convince her they should go for it?

With some new attention from the hottest guy she’s ever met, Ginger can’t help but wonder…is this all too good to be true?

My Thoughts:

This book does come with a content warning for foul language and steamy scenes. Ginger is a full figured gutsy woman who has come to the realisation that she is never going to be the right size so decides to take a chance on a diet pill, what she doesn’t realise though that this pill makes men come at her like a magnet. It is a really funny story and I couldn’t stop laughing, it is a well written story with a unique story line, the only thing I worried about was the fact that the men wouldn’t leave Ginger alone. It is an issue I think that many women struggle with including myself. I think it has been written well. I look forward to book 2 in the misfits series.

As The Stars Fall By Steve N. Lee

As The Stars Fall By Steve N. Lee

A desperate dog. A scarred girl. A bond nothing can break.

When a young girl suffering with her own tragedy comes across an injured young dog, she can’t resist helping him. Both having braved the worst the world had to throw at them, the pair quickly form an unbreakable bond. They picture their future as an endless stream of adventures filled with love, laughter, and good times.

But life has one last cruel trick to play…

My Thoughts:

I needed something a little different to read and this book cropped up and I felt like it was fate, I love the fact it is about a dog as I am a huge animal lover and jump at the chance of reading a book with animals in it and that is is seen through the eyes of a dog, that makes it more interesting and funny. This is story of a young girl who after suffering her own tragedy, she comes across an injured dog and knows she has to help him, I love the bond between the girl and the dog. They have such a lovely relationship together and it is lovely to see, the ending was sad.

Book Blogger Directory 2020 By Deena Rae Schoenfeldt


This Book Blogger Directory lists blog addresses, contact information, where reviews are posted, as well as standard turnaround time and book formats accepted. Indexes list bloggers by accepted genre so you can easily find bloggers amenable to your subject matter.

My Thoughts:

A different type of book for me to read and review but one I feel as though should be reviewed. I am very grateful for the fact that I am listed as a book blogger in this book and I think it is a really good idea and very handy for those authors and publishers to get in touch with book bloggers, it is easy to use and a good layout. I have already had a number of authors contacting me saying they found me in this book which is great, however I would like to point out I think the book needs a key at the front as I think people are confusing the cross x with meaning that book blogger doesn’t review that type of book etc. I feel as though a tick ✔ would be better as it is less confusing. I have had requests from authors of books that I don’t actually read I feel as though it is because this is a little confusing. But all in all I think it is a brilliant idea and I am proud to be in it.

Being Alert By Charlie Laidlaw

Being Alert By Charlie Laidlaw

Being Alert! begins in January 2020 as the British prime minister, Winston Spragg, first learns about a new illness that seems to be centred in a city in China that nobody has heard of.

Following in a long tradition of British satire, the book populates Downing Street and Whitehall with an inept prime minister presiding over a dysfunctional government as it deals with an existential threat that rapidly becomes a national crisis.

Like satires before it, the book uses humour to paint an uncomfortable picture of a government seemingly as concerned about justifying itself as working to protect the country.

My Thoughts:

I have read Charlie’s previous novel The Things We Learn When We Are Dead and enjoyed it, this one is set in London and is to do with the current situation that is all around the world. This story shows how the people in charge go about how to deal with this threat. I found it an interesting and kind of going behind the scenes look into how the government deal with a crisis as big as it is. It is a big debate as to what the government are doing and aren’t doing and it begs the question have they and are they doing enough? . It really made me think about the world we live in, how the government are dealing with the situation at the moment and what they need to do to make it better and how we can help each other.

My Darling By Amanda Robson

My Darling By Amanda Robson

amanda robson

A new couple moves in next door.
And nothing will ever be the same again…

I watched you move in and thought we might be friends.

I saw you watching from the window – and knew I’d have to keep you away from my husband.

I started to trust you. Confide in you.

I started to mistrust you. Suspect you.

I was confused when I blacked out after an evening at your place. Was I really that drunk?

I came up with a plan. A plan to make you both pay . . 

My Thoughts:

A fast paced and sinister story that will have you on the edge of your seat in anticipation. I found this story very intense and creepy but I couldn’t put it down. Amanda writes with such passion and includes lots of information that keeps the reader interested. With Amanda’s books you can never guess what is coming and that is what I really like about her books. A true masterpiece by a brilliant author.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO TO KEEP YOUR CHILD SAFE?

Samantha Jackson has been missing for eighteen years. Then, out of nowhere, she gets back in touch with her sister.

Sam needs Freya – now a grown woman with a family of her own – to take in her son.

But Dino is not a happy child, despite the warmth of Freya’s family he cannot settle. He startles at loud noises and he’s prone to angry, violent outbursts. He’s one of the family, Freya knows he is, but why doesn’t it feel like that?

In order to keep her daughters safe, Freya is forced to go in search of the truth. What is going on with Dino, and what really happened to her sister the night she left?

My Thoughts:

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.

When I finish a book now I always look at the cover again and I always find it poignant. You will see once you read this story how the cover comes more alive. This story is set in one of my favourite places Dorset, I love the different places they go to like Lyme Regis and Monkey World is mentioned too. It always feels more special when you know the places that are talked about in a book. The story is about Freya and her sister Sam who has been missing for a long time, Freya now has two girls and has always been looking for her sister every day since she went missing. One day she gets an email for Sam asking to look after her son Dino, when he turns up he is violent and has issues, what is the problem and can Freya help him? Early on in this story I thought I had it all figured out but then throughout the story there is a massive curve ball that is thrown into the mix that I did not see coming. I really felt for Freya as she has it tough looking after a child that obviously has more things on his mind than he is willing to share, she has to give up things she loves. I also really felt for Dino, when he does decide to open up, his story is quite heartbreaking and I did shed a few tears. I didn’t feel anything for Sam as I cant understand people that take drugs and all the other things she does, I didn’t have any time for her at all. I read this book in a day as I just could not put it down.

We continue the story here from Nell’s previous novel Trust Me, here the story focuses on Claire, back then something dreadful happened if you want to know what happened read book one first and Claire is still traumatised by it all, she decides to start somewhere new and sets on a mission to find her father, on this adventure she encounters all sorts and I willed for her to be alright. A very dramatic read with a very good ending.

I look forward to continuing and reading book 2.

Call Numbers: The Not So Quiet Life Of Librarians By Syntell Smith

Call Numbers: The Not So Quiet Life Of Librarians By Syntell Smith

Contemporary literary workplace drama surrounding a divided staff in a New York City library during 1994.

A new hire attempts to fit in without taking sides.

My Thoughts:

This book bought back to life being in a library in the 90’s, I never knew how much drama and plotting could happen in a library, it really opened up my eyes to a whole new world. Lots of well written characters bring this book to life, we see a little of each of their stories within the chapters. I found this story very interesting and one I would recommend.

The Darkest Winter Ever By C.J.Clarke

The Darkest Winter Ever By C.J.Clarke

When all hope is gone…

James Davis is a man on the brink of destruction. After his sixteen-year-old daughter is taken and sold into a life of slavery and human trafficking he has to call on all of skills as a private investigator to find her. After weeks of fruitless searching, he’s finally getting close, but instead of finding his daughter, he rescues someone he never expected.

…when despair threatens all…

Valerie Abbot, a woman who had been trapped and abused for a decade, sold over and over as a sex slave and degraded in the worst way, and still somehow never gave up, never gave in to despair. That fighting spirit is what leads her to follow her unlikely rescuer as she meets James, a broken father looking for his lost daughter.

…can love still conquer?

Together they go on a journey to find his daughter, but end up finding more than they ever expected in each other. But doubt, guilt, and despair threaten everything they might have together, unless they find the strength to forgive, and love again.

My Thoughts:

This story starts off with James, his sixteen year old daughter is taken and is being used in the slave and human trafficking industry. James calls on a private investigator to help find his daughter before it is too late, he gets close and then things happen that puts him a step back. Instead of finding his daughter he finds Valerie who has been in a similar situation to his daughter, the story then unfolds and they go in search of his daughter together but find out more than they thought they would ever know. This story is engaging, emotional, and compelling and deals with real issues. I needed to find out if he was ever going to get his daughter back.
