Author: Lisa Suzanne
Genre: Rock Star Romantic Comedy
Release Date: December 13, 2019



Blurb

I’ve never seen Emily Clarke as anything more than my little sister’s best friend.

One drunken mistake later, she’s my wife.

My first thought is how to get out of this, except our wedding video has gone viral and record sales are skyrocketing. My manager thinks following the newlyweds on the second season of my band’s reality show will keep up the momentum.

I just have to get Emily to agree to faking this marriage for six months, and then we can quietly divorce.

Right?

Wrong.

Nothing is quite that simple when feelings blur the line between a contract and reality.

I ended up with more than just a hangover when I found myself waking up married.

Author: Effie Kammenou 
Genre: Womens Fiction/ Contemporary Romance 



Book Two in The Gift Saga: The continuation of Evanthia’s Gift …
*Read as a standalone or as part of the trilogy
In 1961, five little girls moved into a suburban neighborhood and became inseparable, lifelong friends. They called themselves the ‘Honey Hill Girls,’ named after the street on which they lived. As teenagers they shared one another’s ambitions and dreams, secrets and heartaches. Now, more than thirty years later, they remain devoted and loyal, supporting each other through triumphs and sorrows.
Evanthia's Gift follows the life of Sophia Giannakos. In Waiting for Aegina the saga continues from the perspectives of Sophia and her friends as the story drifts back and forth in time, filling in the gaps as the women grow to adulthood.
Naive teenage ideals are later challenged by harsh realities, as each of their lives takes unexpected turns. Now nearing their fiftieth year, Sophia, Demi, Amy, Mindy and Donna stand together through life-altering obstacles while they try to regain the lighthearted optimism of their youth.

Effie Kammenou is a believer that it is never too late to chase your dreams, follow your heart or change your career. She is proof of that. At one time, long ago, she'd thought that, by her age, she would have had an Oscar in her hand after a successful career as an actor. Instead, she worked in the optical field for 40 years and is the proud mother of two accomplished young women.
Her debut novel, Evanthia’s Gift, is a women’s fiction multigenerational love story and family saga, influenced by her Greek heritage, and the many real-life accounts that have been passed down. She continues to pick her father’s brain for stories of his family’s life in Lesvos, Greece, and their journey to America. Her interview with him was published in a nationally circulated magazine.
Evanthia’s Gift: Book One in The Gift Saga was a 2016 award finalist in the Readers Favorite Awards in the Women’s Fiction category. Waiting for Aegina is Book Two in The Gift Saga and Chasing Petalouthes is Kammenou’s latest release, completing the series.
Effie Kammenou is a first generation Greek-American who lives on Long Island with her husband and two daughters. When she’s not writing, or posting recipes on her food blog, cheffieskitchen.wordpress.com, you can find her entertaining family and friends or traveling for ‘research.’
As an avid cook and baker, a skill she learned from watching her Athenian mother, she incorporated traditional Greek family recipes throughout the books.
She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Theater Arts from Hofstra University.

Review: Hell Hath No Fury

Hell Hath No Fury Hell Hath No Fury by Annabelle Anders
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Since my first Annabelle Anders read, I’ve needed more. I became an instant fan and have since been meaning to go back and read the author’s other work. With Hell Hath No Fury, I finally started the Devilish Debutantes series.

Had I not already been a fan of Annabelle Anders, this would have ensured I was. From the very first line – what a great opening line it was – I was sucked into this one. It pulled me right in, ensuring I devoured the book in a single sitting.

I fell in love with the characters and the story, I adored the way things developed, and I was left desperate for the next book in the series. The side characters were a lot of fun and I have high hopes for their stories.

I’ll be devouring the rest of the series soon!

Review: Frankie—Unforgettable

Frankie—Unforgettable Frankie—Unforgettable by Felice Stevens
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Frankie – Unforgettable is the second book in the Man Up series, and I was tentative about this one. I’m a big Felice Stevens fan, but the work I do means Aaron’s character was one I did not imagine I could ever love.

Although Felice Stevens did a good job of removing a lot of my thoughts that were a reflection of what Austin thought of Aaron, I did not fall in love with this couple in the way I have fallen in love with other characters. There was certainly growth for both of them, but I never fell deeply in love with them. I also feel a lot of things were not concluded.

All in all, this was an addictive read, but not my favourite from the author.

Review: The Librarian's Vampire Assistant, Book 4

The Librarian's Vampire Assistant, Book 4 The Librarian's Vampire Assistant, Book 4 by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I hate to say it, but this was not a standalone. It was advertised as such, but from the start it was clear I was thrown in the middle of a story. Sure, there were numerous information dumps at the start to try and get me caught up, but it failed to help. I was still in the middle of a story and it resulted in me being unable to get into it.

After this one, I doubt I will be going back and reading the prior books. It was trying too hard and I did not care. There was no humour (at least, I think it was going for humour), it was too on the nose, and the characters got on my nerves. The voices did not go with the characters at all – I was being told one thing and seeing another.

As so many love Mimi Jean Pamfiloff, I will give another of the author’s books a read. However, it will not be one in this series.
