Blog Tour: Another Shot at Love by Niecey Roy

I received a copy of Another Shot at Love in exchange for my review.

Gen was left heartbroken when she discovered that her boyfriend of two years, Brent was cheating on her. After swearing off men it becomes clear that her sisters, Lexie and Cat, have other ideas, and think that Gen needs a date for Lexie's engagement party. After a string of unsuccessful blind dates, Gen ends up accidentally in the crotch of Matt, a financial adviser who seems to fit the bill for Mr. Perfect. Needing something to get her sisters and mother off her back, Gen tells them all that she is in a relationship with Matt, little knowing the lengths to which they'll go to find out if its true. With their fake relationship seemingly going well, Gen actually has to try and figure out what she really feels, and how she is going to sort out the other men in her life!

I loved every minute of reading Another Shot at Love, it was funny and engaging and I really like Gen (or Imogen Mae) as well as the dynamics between her and her friends and family. Honestly I think I'd find it difficult to find a fault with this book! It's definitely the kind of story to read if you want something light and fluffy that'll entertain you and will all work out well in the end! Basically it would make a great chick flick!

I loved Imogen as a main character, there was just something about her. She truly felt real and did things that other people would think of as strange (still not all that sure about what to make of her alien obsession!) I also loved the fact that she was a real woman, I think one of the best moments was when she said that she loved desert and there was no point putting herself through dieting if she couldn't enjoy sweet things, I just couldn't help but think that finally a book heroine is a decent role model, enjoy food but keep healthy (which is basically what she did).

The romance between Matt and Gen was very believable. It started slowly, and though neither of them seemed to admit that they were dating, the actually were. One thing I particularly liked was the fact that they didn't just jump into bed together, in fact it actually took them a fair bit of time to get to that point, which cemented their relationship for me. There was also a fair bit of fantasising going on in Gen's head, which again made their relationship seem more real to me.

As well as the relationship between Matt and Gen there were two other characters who seemed to be after Gen. Richard and Brent. The Brent situation was a bit weird at times (though it did make a fantastic scene close to the end) and actually really made me dislike the guy, which I think may have been the point. Whereas the Richard plot was just pure gold! The poor guy was clueless about women, and so about Gen, and seemed to think there was something there and it wasn't and he just kept popping up. I don' t think I could do the Richard storyline justice if I wrote about it if I'm honest!

The relationships between the family and friends around Gen played a large part in the book, and I absolutely loved how close they all where. In some cases it didn't feel like you were reading something fictional, but instead that it was something that could really happen. The whole effect made a great read.

I'm excited to continue on in this series, I was in the mood for a read like this and am so glad that I found it!

blurb
Once upon a time…
Bridal boutique owner, Alexis Gorecki, used to believe in happily-ever-afters—until prince charming turned into a toad.
Months after being blindsided by her own horrific wedding scandal, Lexie is desperately trying to keep her boutique afloat in the wake of all the bad publicity. Waging war against her evil almost-in-laws—the people who will stop at nothing to ruin her reputation—sounded much better in her head. Lexie's strawberries and cream personality really isn’t cut out for taser guns and blackmail.
To complicate matters, Lexie's first love is back in town with his sexy green eyes and out-of-control abs. He already broke her heart once before, the beast. Leo Moss has always been her weakness and he's made it perfectly clear what he wants. Can he convince Lexie she's not done with love just yet?

excerpt
“Damn it, Lex, you keep pushing me away and it’s pissing me off.” He ran his hands through his hair. “I’m not going to fight over you with some guy who’s already gone.”
“Me pushing you away has nothing to do with Jeremy,” I said and crossed my arms. What I didn’t say was that it had everything to do with Leo, with our past, with me not wanting to get my heart broken again. Why couldn’t he understand that? Why couldn’t he read my mind and know all the questions I had about why he’d broken up with me the way he had, and why he was suddenly here, again, in my life, torturing me with feelings I didn’t want to have. Feelings that scared the hell out of me?
His face lowered, and suddenly his lips were near my ear lobe. I sucked in a breath. “Did he make you feel like this?” he whispered, and then his lips pressed softly against the sensitive skin of my neck. “Or this?” His lips captured my earlobe, a flicker of wet heat, and then it was gone, replaced by a draft of cold air seeping through the crack under the door. “Or this.”
His lips captured mine and stars exploded behind my closed eyes. Everything was warm, my entire body weightless and fuzzy. The kiss was slow; the heat of it felt all the way down to my toes. His tongue slid against mine in a silken kiss of passion that erupted inside of me.

Imogen Gorecki has a problem—her twin sister just got engaged, and guess who’s the best man? That’s right, her scum-of-an-ex-boyfriend whom she caught cheating with a bottle-blonde, with fake breasts and a stripper’s flexibility. There’s a disturbing possibility her eyes will never recover.

excerpt
“You really should change that light bulb,” Matt said, glancing around us.
“I know.” I pushed aside my wallet to dig to the bottom of my oversized purse. “I kind of take for granted that this is supposed to be a safe neighborhood.”
“Until an alien abducts you off your poorly lit porch.”
“Very funny.” I glanced up from my purse with a smile. “But really, it’s late. You could have been home by now.”
“Gen, I’m glad to walk you to your door. I would have worried about you if I hadn’t.”
I considered him as we stood there on my porch, the light flickering above us. I didn’t want him to leave, but I didn’t know how to ask him to stay. Maybe I could ask him in for a drink, though I’d already had enough.
But I have those cupcakes…
Yeah. I could offer him cupcakes. They weren’t his favorite, chocolate with sprinkles, but yellow cake with milk chocolate frosting had to be a close second, right? Hadn’t he said a cupcake will fix everything?
“I’m really glad we went out tonight.” His voice made me jump and I dropped the keys. We both bent to pick them up at the same time and bumped foreheads.
“Sorry,” he said.
“It’s okay, I’m fine.” I clasped my forehead and laughed. Probably, I sounded hysterical. Like a rabid hyena. I couldn’t even look him in the eye when I took the keys from him. “Thanks for inviting me. I had a lot of fun tonight.”
“Me too,” he said.
I put the key into the lock, turning it slowly as I struggled with what to do about him and my out of control libido. Unlocking my door hadn’t given me enough time to figure things out, though, so I tried to prolong sliding the patio door open. That didn’t take long either, and I hesitated in the doorway, still unsure. I opened my mouth to ask him in, but nothing came out. So I stepped backward through the doorway, my gaze glued to his. After a moment, he followed me inside, part of his face lost in shadows.
Time stood still. My tongue darted out to lick my lips, and I lifted up onto my toes as he lowered his head to meet me halfway. The smell of his cologne surrounded me and my eyes drifted shut. He grasped me loosely around my back, pulling me close, sending shivers coursing through my body. His breath caressed my skin, his lips just a whisper away from mine, and my lips parted…

about the author
 

clip_image040
Niecey Roy knew she wanted to be a writer from a very young age, but her moment of enlightenment came after watching the movie You’ve Got Mail. It was then she realized her place in life, and happily parked her butt on writing romance. Her dream was to create sexy vixens, hunky, half-naked heroes, and above all, romance; lots and lots of butterflies in the belly, breathless first kisses and happily-ever-afters.
Most days she can be found at home at a cluttered desk, pounding her tired little fingers away on a keyboard with nothing but black pepper flavored sunflower seeds and Visine as her weapons for mass-romance-novel-creation. When her fingers need a break, you’ll find her at a table with friends, drinking a few martinis and showing off a new pair of (sometimes ridiculous) high heels. She’s usually the loudest at the table and most often the one snorting with laughter.
Niecey is the author of Fender Bender Blues, a contemporary romantic comedy published by The Wild Rose Press. Her new romantic comedy series, What’s Love??? includes Another Shot At Love, and Done With Love releasing April 2014.
