Hard Sell by Lauren Layne – review




Title: Hard Sell

Author: Lauren Layne

Genre: Romance, Fiction

Pages: 252 (I’ve read Kindle copy)

Publication date:(Expected publication:) September 4th 2018 by Montlake Romance



My review:

Matt Canon the youngest broker in the Wolfe Investments and Wall Street too is in trouble. After a wild bachelor party night in Vegas, he is qualified as a wicked and he starts to lose his clients one by one. So, his bosses the “Sems” give him final demand he must find a girlfriend or he will be fired.

Only one person could help him? But, will she do it?

Hard Sell is the second book from a Wall Street series and I love it so much. I like when the minor character from the first book Matt and Sabrina become the main characters in this one, it’s like I know all of them Lara, Ian, Kate, and Kennedy. After reading this installment I’m looking forward to reading the next one.

Matt is a wonder kid as everyone called him; he is very good with the numbers and the women.

He looks mostly the same as always. Impeccably styled blond hair. Blue eyes that can go from playful to guard in the span of the single breath. His suit’s a dark navy today, the slim silver tie keeping the look modern and sharp…

Sabrina is a strong independent woman who succeeded by herself.

I know. You’re thinking I’m someone who thrives on the other people’s problems.

Sort of.

But I offer them solutions. For a price, yes, but I don’t deal in extortion. I’m upfront with how I work and what they can expect from me from the very beginning. There are no “gotchas” at least from me.

Matt and Sabrina are enemies they hate each other, is it possible that they could be a “thing”.

“It’s not like we’re holding hands and having a sing-along in the street. We’re merely tolerating each other.”

“Sure, she wants me dead. And there were a handful of times I’d have happily strangled her. But counter-intuitively, there was a strange easiness between us, too. Almost as though our mutual wariness of the other person and romantic entanglements frees us up to be our true selves. With each other.”

I like to laugh out loud scenes and phrases like this:

“Where did that phrase come from? Kennedy muses. “Marie Antoinette?”

“No, that’s let them eat cake,” Kate says.” I think have your cake and eat it, too is in reference –“

“Guys,” I interrupt.” A little help here?”

I recommend this book to everyone who wants easy summer read and series fulfilled with romance and from enemies to lover stories.

My review:

Kendrick Lowry is sheriff in Cottonwood, Kentucky. She fights against crime. Her mother doesn’t make easier for her because she doesn’t approve Kenni’s job. Kenni has a gift to see ghosts. She sees her grandfather ghost and when Poppa ghost shows up the trouble comes. Mama takes part in a cooking contest and she is determined to win because the prize is an episode in the culinary channel with celebrity chef Frank Von Lee who is coming in the town. Her competition is in the next town; Frank should make a decision who to feature on his culinary TV show. Unfortunately, his visit ends with tragedy and on the first day, he drops dead in his hotel room even vicarious doctor Camille can’t save him. And the first suspect is – guess who?

Six Feet Under is the fourth book in the Kenni Lowey series, but it could be read alone. Tonya writes realistic and dramatic stories and has the power to suck the reader into the story. She created the well-plotted cozy mystery with sharp dialogues and compelling main character.

“She‘s been driving herself nuts since got word he was coming. I’ve been with her. She’s not slept. She did that thing to her face.”

The story is vivid and realistic I felt like I knew all those fascinating characters starting with Kenni, Mama, Lulu, Myrna, Finn even Poppa’s ghost. The narration is well-passed and it flows with exciting suspense and puzzle, a little dose of fear. I asked myself what will happen next, who is the murderer, what if… and all that passes engaging me till the end.

Kenni attracts my attention from the first page. Tonya offered crucial insight into Kenni, as the main character, into her personality and background, giving me a detailed clear picture. Kenni impresses me like a person she is an active listener and is aware of others’ reactions and understands why the others react as they do.

“There is something going on with you.” I pointed my finger in a circle around her head. “There’s something wrong with her face.” I turned to Finn. Finn looked at me with a very amused expression. It was one of those curious looks that made my heart flip-flop every time he wore it.

Mama or Vivian Lowry is a stubborn proud woman too sure of herself.

“I’m fine. I wanted to see my competition. And now I know it’s the lack thereof competition. I’m going to win, hands down.” You see! I told you she is self-centered! Mama Lowry wants to talk “her lips never stop moving once.” And that is the reason that her daughter distances from her. But, this isn’t a reason to hate her she is very interesting and entertaining character who is pushing the story straight.

“I was trying to tell you before you rudely interrupted.” Mama pushed back over to me. “I’m sorry,” she said to Finn. “I raised her better than that.”

I highly recommend this book to mystery lovers and to everyone who likes good book packed with suspense and puzzling tickle.

My review:

Madison seems like an ordinary girl, but she is more than that. She is kind of celebrity in the blogging world with millions of followers who like everything that she writes about her favorite movies. Behind the cover of her blog, Madi is supportive and protective sister, who even displaces absent parent in her sister’s live.

Internet Famous is a sweet, sensational and touching story about young girl Madison. The story keeps my interest till the end; mainly I wanted to know who the hacker is and what will happen with Madi and Laurent.  I like that the author brought my feelings from cold to hot when she tells about Madi’s parents and the situation I was nervous, I wanted to slap Madi’s mother. Parts were Madi, and Laurent showed up or was Madi’s blog in focus I felt warm in my heart.

Madi is the adorable girl she must deal with all barriers which her life brings. She is an introvert yet a famous blogger. The absence of her mother makes Madi’s life complicated, and her father doesn’t help much.

Laurent is an exchange student from France with whom Madi communicates thinking that he is a girl, but when they see each other, there are sparkles.

I recommend this book to young people who want to read the exciting, captivating and swoony story.

My rating 5/5(amazing book).

My review:

In Looking for La La Cathy was a housewife and she wanted to have a decent job and now she has a decent job in London advertising agency and she is working with her best friend Rosa. Rosa cover her in every possible situation, but she is pregnant suddenly she gets labor pains and must goes in hospital. Without Rosa Cathy must deals on her own. In the neighborhood some creeper terrorizing people and Cathy of course agreed to reveal who is hiding behind the musk. The creeper roams around masked as transvestite or maybe he is transvestite. Declan is been spouting since her colleague Hugh’s death.
It’s interesting to be back with my favorite character Cathy. Although she seems a bit disoriented I still enjoyed reading about her, I think that makes her more interesting. I laughed when she did not manage to work and she falls into certain situations and I cross my fingers when she had to get that account, which was so important. But I most like Cathy because she is so positive, brave and funny.
Rosa is really best friend and best colleague that you ever imagine; she is helping to Cathy unselfishly. I just want to have friend like Rosa.
Like I said about Looking for La La I will say the same about this second book: it’s interesting, intriguing with many surprises.

Cathy is riding high in her brand-new job at a (surprisingly bitchy) top London advertising agency working with best friend Rosa. But when Rosa’s pregnancy goes amiss and enemies sabotage her new career, she finds herself leading a chaotic double life of lies and deception, hiding a shameful secret from all, especially husband Declan who appears in the throes of a nervous breakdown.  Meanwhile she’s agreed to unmask the notorious Crouch End Creeper, a burglar terrorizing their neighbourhood. Little does she know that her meddling, assisted by fellow mothers (the Wednesday Once Weeklies) and the Neighbourhood Watch, will lead their dangerous opponent to murder.  And that it’s not only the tall elegant transvestite who is placing herself at risk…

Who Killed Tom Jones by Gale Martin-review

Title: Who Killed Tom Jones
Author: Gale Martin
Pages: 312(e-book,ARC)

 Expected publication: January 21st 2014 by Booktrope Editions    

My review:

This book is interesting mystery. It’s about twenty and something years old Elli, who search for hot romance. She read in Horoscope that she will meet some person, who will change her life and she goes in concert that performers sing a songs of Tom Jones. First performer Stan McCann singing on stage broke his leg. Some Dorothy who sits next to Elli on this concert, a big fan of Stan, tells her that this is sabotage and Stan not broke his leg accidentally.
    Then all goes upside down. I ask myself:” Is there a really sabotage or its fantasy of some crazy woman?” I continue reading and bang someone is killed, and then begins the search for the killer.
This book stirs several emotions to me; while I read it I was shocked, I laughed in some situations, I cried in other one. The content of this book is compact and well done and there is something for each reader.
Elli is great person, she is diligent, polite, and she wants to help and give her unconditional love especially to rest home residents. She is dedicated to her work as a receptionist in Finger Rest Home. Elli also has a detective skills and I like her so much.
When I receive this book I think OMG what kind of book has that name, but while I turn the pages I change my mind.This book I recommended in this winter days without snow (here in Macedonia we don’t have a snow yet), because it makes your days good and fulfilled.
My rating: 4/5 (great book)

My review:

Christmas is special time of the year, but for Marley is the very special day, maybe day of her life, because she getting married. But the story isn’t about Marley it’s about her sister Carol. Carol is not excited about Christmas time even she is not excited about her sister’s wedding. She feels trapped somewhere in rural Scotland with her family and her ex boyfriend.
Carol is very interesting character. She is intelligent, good looking and fashioned workaholic .I like her so much and I laugh on her reaction and thoughts.
The novel is short and funny, so the pages were turning fast. The Christmas is distant from now, but while I read this book I feel warmed and pleasant just like Christmas was here. Rural Scotland, Christmas and wedding all those things are so exciting and make you feel completely romantic. All I saying is that Michelle done great job writing this amazing novel.

This book is:
