*BLOG TOUR* Happily Never After – Emma Robinson ★★★★★

Blurb; Rory closed her eyes. Think with your head. Your heart can’t be trusted. Life is not a fairytale…

Rory doesn’t believe in love. She’s got far too many real problems to deal with.

She’s just bought a tumbledown house. Her mother is generally behaving like a wicked witch, insisting on calling her Aurora, and generally interfering in her (admittedly pitiful lack of) love life. And her 16-year-old daughter has finally grown out of Disney princesses and discovered dating…

But Rory’s adamant that she doesn’t need saving. In fact, the only thing she’s wishing on a star for is a bit of practical help. However, when she meets a builder whose name is John Prince and who seems to be in the habit of rescuing her (right down to finding her lost shoe one evening) she might have to face a truth as uncomfortable as hobbling home barefoot – that maybe there’s something enchanted in the air.

Her mother, daughter and friends are convinced her prince has come, but Rory just wishes everyone could let it go. Especially when she hears a story that makes her question whether he is really the hero everyone thinks he is…

My Review; OH EM GEE. WOW! After reading Emma’s debut The Undercover Mother, this was a must read for me. Boy was this bloody brilliant! Very impressed. I loved every second of reading Happily Never After. A must buy. A must read. You will not be disappointed at all.

This story had me laughing out loud throughout. I fell in love with all of the characters especially Rory with her strong determination and will. She is a very relatable character at times and a hardworked, overtired teacher… Which I can relate to, been there, done that. But phewwww. Did it just get hot in here? That John Prince character sounds the dream doesn’t he? Getting me all hot and bothered. A real life little hero! Phew.

I devoured this way too quickly within a day and now have to wait till her next book. Sigh. But I already know it will be a belter. Happily Never After is an easy read, fast paced and hilarious story for all chick-lit, romance lovers. A well deserved five stars. Highly recommend if you need cheering up and diving into someone else’s crazy world, it worked for me. Perfect. Outstanding. Just what I needed. Thank you Emma.

*BLOG BLITZ* The Undercover Mother – Emma Robinson ★★★★★

Blurb; Have you ever wondered what secrets other mothers are keeping?

Jenny has too much on her plate: literally – she’s only pregnant with one child but she’s already eating for three. Not to mention trying to juggle her future life with a baby, a nightmare boss, a know-it-all sister, and a bizarrely laid back husband.

She used to be famous for her ‘Single Girl About Town’ journalism. But not only is she bored of parties, she also hasn’t been single for years, and is now 8½ months pregnant.

So when her boss hands her column to a younger colleague, Jenny panics and proposes instead writing about being a clueless new mum. Surely people will find her new friendship group fascinating? Even if the only thing they have in common is that they all had sex around the same time 9 months ago…

Like – what’s the deal with scary Gail’s mystery husband? How is posh mum Antonia already out drinking when Jenny can barely make a cup of tea? Why isn’t sweet-natured Ruth answering any phone calls?

And if her readers aren’t quite hooked yet, maybe Jenny will just have to be more liberal with the truth. After all, none of the other mums will read it… will they?

My Review; This is actually the perfect book for all mums to be and mums to enjoy and have a giggle at! It has EVERYTHING, Emma has not left out the bits that others do. It has all the ups, down and all the wobbly bits in between! This had me laughing out loud in parts. An easy to read, fast paced belter of a story. I would highly recommend to you all.

I loved Jenny and all the girls and how they all represent different mums with differing views on life. I awarded a well deserved five stars! I cannot wait to read more by Emma in future. I have enjoyed and loved reading every minute of this story at all daft hours in the morning with my newborn so I can relate to many parts in this story.

It’s one of those stories you wont want to put down when you start… Very impressed.
