*This book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.*
Meet Ellie, a young woman who has convinced herself that she can hear warning bells that precede the impending failure of her relationships. And that is exactly what she hears when she walks in on Tim in a compromising position with their busty neighbor Suzy. Ellie high tails it to her friend Luanne’s for some crying and a night of vodka laced tea, swearing off her type of men forever. She even has the contract to prove it. Until Sam saunters into her life, and no warning bells ding.
A laugh out loud romantic comedy that is sure to have you giggling. Ellie’s quirky internal commentary is hilarious and you have to love her friend Luanne. This was a very enjoyable read. I don’t usually read this genre of book but I finished this in a day. It’s offbeat and the characters are definitely interesting. It’s sweet, but not overly sappy with just the right amount of heat. A must read for any romantic comedy fans out there.
Emily Hemmer was raised in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago before settling in Kansas City in 1996. She was raised in a house full of women and can therefore shower, blow-dry her hair, and apply full makeup in twenty minutes flat. A huge fan of romantic comedies, Emily was overjoyed to learn that her college roommate could recite every word of the movie ‘Clueless,’ until she realized that was the only VHS tape her roommate owned. Emily dropped out of college and to this day, blames the listless years of her twenties on the words, “As if!” She completed her degree after an extended eleven-year semester break.
Married in 1998, Emily and her husband ‘Mr. T’ have two beautiful children now entering their teenage years. Her mother assures her that these years are not meant as punishment for parents, but as a source of great hilarity and recompense for grandparents. A sweet yellow lab, a jerk-face Viszla puppy, and an evil Siamese cat make up the rest of the family.
In October 2012, Emily learned she came in 2nd place for the SFARWA ‘s Heart-to-Heart contest (for contemporary single title romance) for her first work, The Break-Up Psychic. This work has been a true labor of love and is the basis for all of Emily’s future happiness. But she’s trying not to put too much pressure on herself.
According to her Yahoo! Shine horoscope for 2013, this year looks to be the best of Emily’s life. She has plans to publish three books, win countless accolades from her peers, and literally roll around on a bed made of money. She also plans to purchase a new dishwasher.
