Earlier this year I revieuwed Julie Shackman's novel 'Rock My World'! It was a light-hearted, quirky and fun read which I really enjoyed (click here to read my review), and I looked forward to reading more of Julie's work. Luckily, Julie's second novel 'Hero or Zero' was released on the 27th of September by Not So Noble Books and I can't wait to read it!
A light-hearted, funny romance novel you will adore.
When single mum Chloe Jones wins a magazine competition to have TV heartthrob Ethan Blake live with her for a month, she thinks her dreams have come true. And the presence of the handsome star in her home and small Scottish town certainly causes a stir. But when Chloe begins to see his true colours, will she find the courage to face him, and admit where her heart truly lies?
I'm really excited to welcome Julie to the blog today with a special guest post in which we are introduced to the leading lady in her new novel 'Hero or Zero', Chloe Jones!
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to meet your favourite actor/singer/writer (?!)
Well, come and find out what happened when I did!
Hi – I’m Chloe Jones, a single parent to my gorgeous son Danny. I work part-time as a Civil Servant and I suppose all in all, my life is pretty mundane….that is until I win a magazine competition and the prize is my favourite actor, the impossibly handsome TV star Ethan Blake, coming to stay with me for four weeks.
I’ve lusted after this wonderful man for four years. I think I’ve seen everything he’s ever been in. He’s my Hero and I can’t wait to meet him.
Compared to the guys I’ve known – well, they just pale into insignificance next to Ethan.
I mean, I know I don’t know him but from what I do know – well, he seems to be the perfect gentleman!
I can't even begin to describe how INCREDIBLY excited I am to share something special with all of you today! Last year, I was lucky enough to be part of Team Nell, the promotion team for Miranda Dickinson's amazingly fabulous novel 'Take a Look At Me Now'. Miranda is treating us to a new book before the end of 2014 titled 'I'll Take New York' and I already know this is going to be one of the best chick lit releases of this year! This year I was asked to be part of Team Bea and I couldn't say 'YES' quick enough! So, be sure to keep an eye on your favourite book blogs the upcoming weeks for 'Miranda Mondays' in order to be kept up-to-date on the exciting release of 'I'll Take New York' and the chance to win some amazing prizes!
Have you ever given up on love?
When her boyfriend lets her down for the last time, Brooklyn bookshop owner Bea James makes a decision – no more. No more men, no more heartbreak, and no more pain.
Psychiatrist Jake Steinmann is making a new start too, leaving his broken marriage behind in San Francisco. From now on there'll just be one love in his life: New York.
At a party where they seem to be the only two singletons, Bea and Jake meet, and decide there’s just one thing for it. They will make a pact: no more relationships.
Movie addict Scarlett O'Brien is finally living the jet-setting life she's dreamed of, but it all hangs by a shiny, golden thread. Flying between London and New York, running two businesses, and planning her wedding to handsome fiancé Sean along with her best friends Oscar and Maddie—life couldn't be better. Then Scarlett meets paparazzi darling Gabriella Romero, and life suddenly becomes even more extravagant and glamourous. But as she begins to experience the other side of being rich and famous, it's not only Scarlett's perfect wedding that's put in jeopardy, but her whole world.
YES, YES, YES! I'm SO excited Ali McNamara decided to write a third part of her absolutely amazing 'From Notting Hill With...' series and I can't even explain how much I'm looking forward to reading more about Scarlett and Sean and Oscar and Maddie... This is going to be one of my favourite reads of 2014, no doubt about it. The novel will be published on the 23rd of October and I can't wait to pick it up!
