*BLOG TOUR* Did my Love Life Shrink in the Wash? – Kristen Bailey ★★★★

Blurb; It’s normal to wish that your baby came with a snooze button, right?When I got pregnant, Will and I didn’t have a clue what we were signing up for. It turns out that there’s loads we weren’t warned about:1) In the middle of the night you’ll be begging Siri for advice on getting your baby to sleep. (In case you’re wondering, whale music doesn’t work.)
2) If you make the mistake of going to a nightclub you’ll nod off, drool, and be woken up by an angry bouncer.
3) You’ll spend more time spooning your child’s cuddly donkey than your own boyfriend.
4) Communication with your other half will be via post-it notes on the fridge, mainly telling him to buy more milk.
5) Sex is something that happened in another dimension.But even if I feel like I’m waiting for my motherhood powers to come in the post, at least I’ve got Will. Our old life – festivals, sambuca shots, an actual sex life – might be a distant memory, but we can get through anything together, can’t we?At least that’s what I thought until, one day, Will walked out on us… If I’m on my own (apart from Siri, obviously) can I do this whole parenting thing? Or I am destined to lose my sanity one sleepless night at a time?

My review; I absolutely love this authors books. They’re laugh out loud funny and 100% relatable for many female readers. Focusing on motherhood, babies, relationships, marriage and the newborn stage. It’s an all in one with both the highs and lows… We get to experience it all with her.It’s a light hearted read, uplifting and funny in parts. I loved it all. This is life. No covering up the bads bits. It’s all there in every page. 100% honest. Even if some of us won’t admit some parts ourselves. Brilliantly written. An easy read I devoured! I just wanted to be in the book to help her. I loved her neighbour too the relationship they had is amazing, a great support to her. Will was an up and down character for me what he did was wrong, but I do believe he revived himself towards the end.I also loved the main star of the show their little baby boy who soon becomes quite famous himself! Wow. Something a little different. A famous baby. His mother soon had to get her head around it all and interact with an old high school acquaintance.A funny, light-hearted and happy ending read! Loved it. Makes you feel warm and smile. A well deserved four stars from me. Highly recommend.

Just Another Silly Love Song – Rich Amooi ★★★★

Blurb; New from the King of Romantic Comedy!

Two rival radio personalities. Lori Martin is a positive and upbeat DJ, known for playing love songs and dedications. Ben Baxter dishes out no-nonsense, in-your-face relationship advice. Total opposites. Never in a million years would they want to work together.

Fired for losing her cool after her boyfriend breaks up with her on the air, Lori surprisingly receives a job offer for the coveted morning show at the radio station across town where Ben works. She thinks she’s replacing him, but finds out they want to team up Lori with her archenemy to set the air waves on fire and boost ratings. Financially strapped, she can’t turn down the job.

While their on-air fireworks and explosive chemistry make for great listening, what in the world will happen after work hours?

My Review; This is another recommended by fellow blogger Melanie Reads. Another great choice. Brilliant. From the start I loved it. It’s a romantic comedy, feel good, uplifting and laugh out loud funny in parts story. An easy read. Enjoyed it all. Not one I would have chosen for myself so I’m glad I did get the chance to read it.

Loved the two main characters Lori and Ben. The banter they have between each other. Kind of similar to enemies to lovers at the start, or opposites attract maybe? But they soon have to work together to get the number one radio show and along the way they find out they both have a lot more in common than they think…

Highly recommend. Beautiful outcome and ending for more than one character. An easy, short read that is bound to make you smile. A well deserved four stars from me.

*BLOG TOUR* Heading Over The Hill – Judy Leigh ★★★★★

Blurb:

Growing old disgracefully and having a grand old time…

Billy and Dawnie may be in their seventies, but that won’t stop them taking chances or starting again. Their grown-up children have families and lives of their own, so now it’s Billy and Dawnie’s turn, and a life near the sea in Devon beckons.

But the residents of Margot Street (or Maggot Street as Dawnie insists on calling it), don’t quite know what to make of their new neighbours. Billy’s loud, shiny and huge Harley Davidson looks out of place next to the safe and sensible Honda Jazz next door, and Dawnie’s never-ending range of outrageous wigs and colourful clothes, means she’s impossible to miss.

As new friendships are formed and new adventures are shared, Billy and Dawnie start winning their neighbours’ affection. And when life teaches them all a terrible lesson, the folks of Margot Street are determined to live every day as if it’s their last.

My Review; I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS. Such an easy, fun and page turner of a read that I devoured. It was over far too quickly for my liking. I loved it all. The characters, the town, the romances, the friendships and the neighbours. Absolutely brilliant. Parts had me laughing out loud!
It’s such a uplifting, happy and full of love and friendship story I couldn’t help but smile all the way through. The main characters are Billy and Dawnie growing old but ‘disgracefully’ I beg to differ. They’re having fun, living life to the full and different. I loved them both. I aspire to be like them when they’re older. Ha.

A brilliant read. A well deserved five stars from me. Might even be heading into my top twenty reads of the year. One I won’t forget in a long time. I love old characters but especially those that are ‘different’ from the OAP norm.
