Review: Mr Right Now - Lila Monroe

Mr Right-Now

Review: Mr Right Now - Lila Monroe - July 2017

After finishing The Wild by K.Webster, I decided that I needed something a bit more light-hearted so went with Lila Monroe's Mr. Right Now as I knew Lila Monroe would make me giggle. Maggie is nearing her thirties and living back home with her parents in the small town that she grew up in with her tail hanging in-between her legs. Maggie had dreams of making it big in New York with her cakes and her dream of opening a bakery and was doing well until Sunny - a former baking reality TV star decided to open her bakery just down the road from Maggie's and steal all her clients and customers as who wants to go to a nobody when they can get their baked goods from a celebrity wannabe.  One of Maggie's specialties is cakes and weird and wacky is her middle name. When one of the jobs turns out to be a mistake as she thought it was a bachelorette party, not an upscale engagement, she is left with a 40 inch cock cake complete with squirting semen icing and to make it worst she is now in the company of her childhood crush and next door neighbour - Drew Delaney. Growing up Drew was part of a boy band in the 90's a bit like One Direction or Big Time Rush. One thing leads to another and Drew, and Maggie hit it off and starting dating and trying to make up for lost time. However what will happen when both Drew and Maggie are given an opportunity that will revitalize both their careers, even though it will separate them - will they take it as Drew was just a Mr. Right Now or will Maggie discover that she wants to be Drew to her Mr. Forever and not a Mr. Right Now? Find out in this fun romantic comedy by Lila Monroe which contains cock cakes, laughs, romance and 90's pop references.

Something Fun : What Would Your Dream Library / Reading Nook Look Like ?

I was asked the question of What Would My Dream Library/ Reading Nook Look Like the other day and it got me thinking about what I would love to have in it. As a big reader and like many of you out there, the first thing we think of when we want to buy a new house or move into a new property is which room can we create and make into a new library or reading area.

When creating the perfect library area / reading nook , there are a certain number of items that one will need in their area.

What would you put into your library ?

# The First is an amazing bookshelf to put all your books on :

Athens Modular Library With 2 End Angled Bookcases In French White

# The Second is a Table to either put your hot drink on as you read your book - if you are like me then a good cup of Earl Grey Tea or if you have Coffee sized table books . Also a table gives your library room , more of a homely touch. As I personally love things a little more creative, this is a favourite table I found.

Industrial 84" x 38" Rectangle Copper Table With Large Crank Base

#The third thing that you need in your library room is a comfortable chair to curl up and read your book in , as I like pretty things this is one of my favourites.

# As most readers are also voracious writers, the other thing that would make complete my dream library or reading nook would be a writing desk and what better writing desk than the Isla Mirrored Desk.

RELEASE BLITZ - If Ever by Angie Stanton

Title: If Ever
Author: Angie Stanton
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 21, 2017


Fiercely independent Chelsea Barnes has caught a rare break and been cast as the first non-celebrity on the hit show Celebrity Dance Off. Chelsea is coined ‘America’s Chance to Dance,’ but her partner planned on an A-lister, not a nobody.

Clashing with her partner, she’s ready to go home; but during an emotional dance, her heart-breaking past as an abandoned, homeless teen is revealed. Not only do the viewers fall in love with her, so does the flirty British guest singer, Broadway star Thomas Evan Oliver.

Tom is struck by this feisty girl who complicates his over-structured life, and pursues her in a romantic cross-country courtship until she’s voted off and joins him. Their sexy whirlwind love affair blossoms in New York as she navigates the big city and his exhausting eight shows a week, but most important, her scarred heart begins to heal. Perhaps happily ever after might be a possibility after all.

The Wild

Review: The Wild - K. Webster - August 2017
So K.Webster released a new book, and I was excited to read it as I love how she writes about the taboo topics and you know her books will be considered in the dark fiction category. While I was busy waiting for this book to arrive and be released, my Facebook feed started to blow up about her new book and by Blow Up I mean still two weeks after release day it is being talked about, and people un-friended one another over this book. It got so bad that this book ended up being Banned from Amazon. I managed to get a copy before it was taken down from the majority of sites. I had a fair idea about what the content was going to be seeing as my Facebook feed for the past two weeks was all about this book. I read it knowing that it was a K.Webster book and away I went. I have to admit I had expected something a bit racier due to the way people were carrying on about it. Also, the fact is K.Webster has a massive WARNING written in the blurb, so people do know what they were getting if they decided to read the book.
The Wild is an extremely taboo story. Most will find that the themes in this book will make you incredibly uncomfortable. This book is only for the brave, the open-minded, and the ones who crave love in even the most dismal of situations. Extreme sexual themes and violence in certain scenes, which could trigger emotional distress, are found in this story. If you are sensitive to heavy taboo themes, then this story is not for you
Seriously, ok he has sex with his daughter, but she didn't seem to care -in fact, she was the one encouraging it, and he did at first try to deter as he knew morally inside him that it wasn't right, but of course, she wasn't his blood, so it's not completely incestuous. What I don't understand is people stand by and say the relationship of Cersei and Jamie Lannister wasn't too bad and they don't go all up in arms about the fact that they will boycott Games of Thrones because of the incestuous relationship, yet they will happily boycott The Wild because of the father/daughter relationship. There was a rape scene in the book which I didn't see coming, and this would possibly be the darkest factor in the book.  Overall however, the book itself wasn't an outstanding story and one I would rave on about but in general if you were looking for a dark fiction and enjoy K.Websters, and you know what to expect from her books, then The Wild is just another one to add to your TBR pile if you can manage to track down a copy.
