Another Shot at Love possibly has to be one of the sweetest books I've ever read! It was overwhelmingly sweet and hilarious, which I didn't expect, but this book had me unattractively guffawing out loud while clutching my sides. It had the same effect on me that Janet Evanovich's books have, and I would say that I loved it just as much.
Poor Gen has had it rough. She found her long time boyfriend and the love of her life in a very unflattering and compromising position with "stripper Barbie" (as Gen calls her), and Gen has just about given up on love. Until she comes face-to-fa-...well, somewhat face-to-face with Matt, a dashing and charming man, who finds Gen precious and funny.
Their relationship starts as a friendship, with them watching alien movies and chowing down on beer and popcorn, but begins to build into an irresistible relationship.
This story is so precious, hysterical, and sweet, I can't help but rate it five stars.
The plot, the characters, Niecey Roy's storytelling, and the rest of the contributing factors in this novel had just enough of each to make me fall absolutely head-over-heels in love with it. Before, I was contemplating whether I should rate it four or five stars...now I know for sure exactly how much I love it. Five stars all around.
If a friend of mine, or even a complete stranger, needs something light, sweet, and fluffy (like whipped cream), this is the book. Another Shot at Love is one of the best "feel good" books I've ever read.
(Not to mention a few steamy scenes that just about had me breathless.)
Another Shot at Love definitely gets The Literary Connoisseur stamp of approval.
