About TEXT ME BABY ONE MORE TIME

I love you, he said.
Forever, he said.
Turns out, he lied.

When he leaves me high and dry after a cross-country move, I push him out of my life as much as I can, which is hard to do when the guy who broke your heart also happens to be the most famous dude in town.

After a disastrous year, he’s aiming to rehab his reputation, and I just so happen to be aiming for a promotion at the paper.

So, we strike a deal, and it’s a win-win all around.

Besides, what’s the harm in a few dates to charity galas anyway?

He’s arrogant, a total jerk. There’s no way I’ll fall for him…again.

I used to love him. Now I hate him…I think.

My review:

Sometimes there will be a character that is so vile that we readers hate everything about them. It takes a talented author to create a character that is hated but  not cartoonish and over the top.  And once in a while, that talented author will write the most beautiful redemption story for that character and we end up loving him instead of hating him. But like Text Me Baby One More Time says, there’s a thin line between love and hate.

We first meet Shep in Let’s Get Textual, the book that started this amazing series. He is the younger brother of Zach, and college classmate of Delia. He is a horrible person and does something abhorrent to Delia and is the catalyst for a rift between the two. We meet Denny in Can’t Text This as the twin sister of Monty. We don’t get a lot of her backstory in that book but we know she is completely different than her elementary school teacher sister. She is unfiltered and not at all shy about her sexuality.

Text Me Baby is the redemption story we didn’t know we wanted. It is told in dual point of view, and both six years ago and in the present. Past Shep and Denny “meet” via text in high school, when their best friends want to get engaged. They continue to text each other and develop a strong friendship and then more. They decide to give a relationship a shot when they are finally at the same college the next school year. Fast forward to the present, and this obviously didn’t work out. We don’t know what happened for a long time, but Denny hates Shep for what he did to her. But they need each other – she needs his interview for a promotion and he needs her to clean up his image.

I already liked Denny from Can’t Text This, but enjoyed learning more about her. But I love a good redemption story and Shep’s is outstanding. He learned so much about his own behaviour and really made an effort to amend his actions. And total honesty, the last chapter of the book made me tear up at all the feelings, and that is a rarity for me.

Note: This book can definitely be read as a standalone. While these characters are connected to others in the series, and those characters make appearances in this book, the relevant information is given here and you won’t feel like you are missing something if you haven’t read the others. But having read them all adds so much more depth to the experience of this book that I highly recommend it. And if you have Kindle Unlimited there is no excuse not to read them all!

Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥

Have You Read Maid In England Yet?

See my review here

Title: Maid in England

Series: The I Do Crew #1

Author: Brenda St John Brown
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: February 5, 2019

Blurb
TO: The guy who dumped me because of my career
FROM: The woman hired to save yours
RE: I am 150,000% over you. 
Alastair,
I’m on the 11:14 train out of London, so I’ll be there by 3:00. To make this as painless as possible, I thought it would help to establish key ground rules:
 1. No rehashing our past relationship. Yes, we were engaged, but it’s been twelve
years and I’m over you.
  2. I’m very good at my job and that job is to help you shed the “reclusive” part of
the whole “reclusive rock star” vibe you’ve got going on. Brace yourself.
  3. My plan is to have this wrapped up by Friday, so save your smoldering looks until
I’m gone, please. (I assume you still smolder?) I’m immune now. See item #1.
 4. My cousin is getting married and guess who’s a bridesmaid? Funny, huh? Almost as funny as the fiancée you dumped because you thought she was married to her job
now saving yours.
Always a bridesmaid, never a bride. Except almost. That one time.
Remi
P.S. Have I mentioned I’m totally, completely 150,000% over you?

Author Bio
Brenda is a displaced New Yorker living in the English
countryside. She’s lived in the UK long enough to gain dual citizenship, but
still doesn’t understand Celsius. However, she has learned the appropriate use
of the word “pants”. And how to order a proper bacon bap/barm/buttie. Because,
well, bacon.
Brenda writes contemporary romance to make you giggle and
swoon. When she’s not writing, she enjoys hiking, running and reading. In
theory, she also enjoys cooking, but it’s more that she enjoys eating and, try
as she might, she can’t live on Doritos alone.

My review:

This is a book about how to write book reviews. It contains a lot of insights, and really helps people (authors and non-authors alike) understand the importance of reviews to book sales. It also gives useful information on what not to include in reviews, or to mention for information but not penalize the author.
Mr Dorner suggests several acronyms for the steps of writing a review and what to include. Unfortunately, he starts with the longest one (EFFORTLESS) and it is so hard to remember what that long of an acronym stands for that I can’t even remember the other, shorter ones. The purpose of acronyms is to make the information easier to remember and use, but this one defeats the purpose. The book does conclude with examples and exercises to practice this method of review writing.
Overall, this is a very helpful book for anyone who reads regularly and writes reviews or has wanted to leave a review but been too intimidated to do so.
Rating: ♥♥♥♥
How is this book different from others in your genre?

There are books out there about writing book reviews. But, as authors, we have slightly different insights. We also have something else to gain. While the book is written so that any reader can enjoy it, it’s aimed at authors. I explain why I believe it’s so important for authors to make time to write reviews and how it’s beneficial. Then give inspiring prompts with easy to remember acronyms. It takes me about fifteen minutes to write a book review and cross-post it on four sites. With practice, readers of this book can achieve that too.

Why did you take part in the A to Z Challenge the year that your book was “given life”?
It’s the ten year anniversary. I’m very excited to be a co-host of the A to Z Challenge. This is an incredible community.
Why did you start blogging?
This is answered in my very first blog post.
“You may wonder why I started a blog. I may wonder that too! Actually, this blog was started because I heard about the A to Z challenge from some Nanowrimo friends.”
Any other books coming out soon?
This is my current new publication.
“WRITING BOOK REVIEWS AS AN AUTHOR:
INSPIRATION TO MAKE IT EASIER”
I have several stories in the works though.
What other books do you have available?
Fractions of Existence  –  An urban fantasy. Free on Kindle Unlimited.
Brief tip on writing:
Here’s a motivational quote of mine about when you feel like giving up on writing:
35130189553_a46aecc01c_o
Where did the idea for this book come from, other than the alphabet and the challenge?
The idea came from interviewing so many debut authors at Operation Awesome.  I noticed that some authors reviewed a lot of books, and others had never written one. I set out to inspire those who didn’t write reviews. It turned out to be long enough for a month of blog posts (this coming April). Then I noticed I had enough to make a reference book.
What writing goal do you hope to accomplish this year?
My biggest writing goal this year is to publish two books in 2019.
As a reader, what most motivates you to buy a new book to read? 
A recommendation from a trusted source, reading something interesting about the book, or the book being by an author I like.
What is one question or discussion topic which you would like the readers of this post to answer or remark on in the blog comments?
What motivates you to write book reviews? (Or, if you don’t write them, what deters you?)
