Author: Diane Louise
Genre: Romantic Comedy, Fiction
Published: 30th September
Life sucks sometimes. Alexis’ life is a mess she was wealthy and happy, but she isn’t anymore. Everything is twisted, she is poor and single but she is intent on to be rich again. Although that decision is easy to make but is tough to do, Alexis will do anything to get to what she wants.
Alexis never considers that taxi drivers are humans neither that they could be attractive young men then she meets Bob. But he is a poor taxi driver, what he could do for her?
I feel joy and happiness reading this book. It’s easy and entertaining page-turner filled with humor and witty remarks.
LOL, this so funny:
“Oh, Alexis you are the epitome of female power; look at you.” She holds me at arm’s length, her strong fingers digging deep into my shoulder like a witch testing my nutritional value.”
Alexis is very funny, mannerly and snobby woman, despite her downsides I like it so much and enjoy reading her ventures, either she is doing it or jump in it.
Candy Alexis’ sister, she is far away from the meaning of her name. She is Alexis’ opposite sassy, anti-elitist and messy woman.
“Having the thing from the spot where it has stood for years, I dive towards Candy but am too late. Like something from a Stephen King book, she hurls up a gallon of liquid that splatters all over my bare feet.”
Yes, what is wrong? I totally agree with the quote:
“What is wrong with a bath and a good book? That’s what any normal thirty-three years old woman would do.”
From the scenes that I like and could describe as sizzling and sensuous, I would emphasize this one:
“His hair is disheveled again from the cute habit he has of running his hands through it. His bow tie, long since undone, is hanging loosely around his neck and I still have drool on the back of my hand from wiping it away when he flicked open a couple of buttons on his dress shirt.”
I recommend this book to everyone, who likes short, easy turning page romantic comedy.
Suddenly single and unexpectedly poor, it’s definitely safe to say that Alexis Harland is not living the life of her dreams.
Although she’s determined that nothing, not one little thing, will stop her return from poverty. Well, almost nothing. Her pride might get in the way a little. And possibly her family. And maybe the fact that she hasn’t got a clue where to start.
Many years ago, Alexis was swept away from life on a caravan park and introduced to a world of riches and glamour. All thanks to a wealthy man who married her, reinvented her… and then dumped her for a younger model at the first sign of cellulite.
Now Alexis is stranded, struggling to keep her head above water and her history a secret from her highbrow friends.
As if that isn’t enough for a woman to deal with, one night she comes home to find a sexy man has landed, quite literally, on her doorstep. A man hell-bent on testing everything Alexis thinks she knows about true happiness.
Caught between the life she knows and her blossoming love, can Alexis afford to let go of her unwavering pride, kiss her social status goodbye and accept that stepping back to square one is sometimes a huge leap forward?

Author Bio –
Diane Louise is a dairy farmer’s wife from the UK who doesn’t know a Holstein from a Hereford.
But what she does know is how to write a funny story. Three years ago she tried to write steamy romance and sucked at it. Honestly, her stiff upper lip made her heroes more wet blankets than wet dreams. With a steely determination to avoid milking the cows, she turned her hand to Romantic Comedy and a star was born. Well, in her mind at least.
Fancy getting to know the woman behind the words?
