Blog Tour: Done With Love by Niecey Roy

I received a copy of Done With Love in exchange for my review.

Despite having a disastrous engagement party, Lexie is still going ahead with her marriage to Jeremy Buchanan, until his mother, Deborah, reveals her true colours with a contract annulling their marriage before it had even been made. Running out on her wedding day was the most dramatic thing that Lexie has ever done, and when she goes on her honeymoon alone the last person she expects to follow her is Leo Moss, her first love and the man that she's never truly got over. Lexie knows that she should avoid Leo, particularly because of the crazy chemistry between them, but with the rest of her life spiraling out of control due to Deborah, love is the last thing on Lexie's mind.

Oh I love this series! Well I say this but I've only really read it since yesterday, but still I love the characters, the writing style and the settings, it all just works really well. As with the previous book in the series, I think that Done With Love would make a great chick flick, though I did also think that this book tended to get a bit more dramatic than the other book, and a few of the events seemed less plausible if I'm totally honest. Not that that stopped me from enjoying Done With Love, far from it!

Lexie is very different from her twin, but I thought that that worked well. Though Lexie also got very down and kind of whiny, not that anyone would do any different if they were forced into that situation and everything was falling apart around them. Its one of the reasons that I found Lexie a believable character, which I think helps in the grand scheme of things, even if she did act somewhat pathetic at times and needed to be told not to drink (or eat) so much.

The relationship between Lexie and Leo was complicated to say the least. There was crazy chemistry between the two of them which couldn't be denied by anyone, but there still remained the issue of their past. Though the reasons for them breaking up the first time weren't really revealed until later, I thought that they made sense, and made me like Leo more as a character. I never felt that one of the two of them needed to get past something that the other one did though, mainly because actually neither of them did anything wrong in the past (it was just the present that Lexie kept messing up).

There was an enemy in Done With Love as well, Lexie was having it out with her ex-fiancee's mother, and things got a little out of control on both sides. Reading Lexie waste away wasn't a good part of this situation, but when she bounced back you could really tell and I think that that was the making of the character.

I enjoyed Done With Love, and am definitely looking forward to the next book in the series!

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.

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.
