Review: Another Shot At Love by Niecey Roy
ABOUT THE BOOK: Imogen Gorecki needs a date to her sister’s engagement party—especially since her cheating ex-boyfriend is on the guest list. But finding Mr. Perfect in a time crunch is proving impossible.
Just when she’s about to give up, she face-plants into the crotch of the sexiest guy she’s ever met.
Matt Sesnick is everything Imogen wants in a man, but he’s not looking for a relationship so soon after his recent divorce. Will Gen’s pregnant and hormonal older sister, her bridezilla twin, and all of her past Mr. Wrongs get in the way of their happily-ever-after, or can she convince Matt to take another shot at love?
REVIEW: Imogen is the main character of this story and she rocks it with her blonde hair and pink highlights! The story begins with Gen’s memory rehashing the past three months of her pathetic life with Brent. She walks in to find him with another woman in their bed. Her response is to sprinkle his clothing over the shrubbery outside. What a kick-ass way to start a story right?! She thought that she had been in love; but, she didn’t know what love was…until she ran into Matt. She’s drawn to this new man in her life but doesn’t know if a serious relationship is something that she can consider or even commit to. As her sister’s engagement starts to unravel, Gen’s new lust picks up speed but is she ready? I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book which is the first in her What’s Love series. Gen and Matt’s relationship was so raw and irresistible; I found myself unable to put it down! I am a sucker for a good romance and this topped my expectations because it also had an insatiable amount of humor references as well. All characters really captivated my attention; however, my heart sunk with Lexie’s unhappiness. Since Lexie and Gen are twins, the author makes sure to incorporate her sister’s unhappiness with her frazzled engagement often. The author also captures Gen’s perfectly descriptive annoyance for Brent who becomes incredibly clingy and unreliable. The one sole characteristic that really hit home for me is the closeness of her family; she mentions them often during the story which really made me relate to the main character so much more. In my opinion, this story was well written and all descriptions were so vivid that I had a prevalent imagination of each character and each emotion experienced. I recommend this wonderful romance to all of the women in my club because it is told from Imogen’s perspective. She is tough and innocent which reminds me of myself when I first got married. She doesn’t want casual sex but strives to find that one person who will complete her in every way. I am giving this story fives stars because I could really relate which is one of the main things that a reader looks for when picking a book.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Once upon a time, there was a young girl who wrote sappy poetry about every relationship gone wrong. She had her heart broken many times before the man of her dreams stepped off a big Navy ship and swept her off her feet, promising to never hold her shoe obsession against her.
From that day forward, she swore she’d never again write sappy poetry of unrequited love. Instead, a sucker for smooches and happily-ever-afters, Niecey Roy now writes contemporary romancer inspired by her sailor’s sexy brown eyes and charming sense of humor.
She is the author of the River Bend Series, the What’s Love series, and Fender Bender Blues, a single-title romance.
