The Wedding is a continuation of Finding Melody. We rejoin Melodie now that she’s got her ‘office guy’ and we follow them through another chapter of their life together.
You’d think now that they’re together it’d be plain sailing for them, you’d be wrong.
Melodie is a loveable, quirky, sassy little firecracker. Isaacs is her nerdy office guy. In some ways they seem like polar opposites, but they do say that opposites attract.
Whilst Melodie seems to be all sass and confidence, she has to deal with her own inner voice; just like we all do. Not only that Melodie has to deal with her future mother in law too, not an easy feat.
With Christmas fast approaching, knowing they’re spending it with Issac’s family, Melodie tries to hunt down the perfect presents to help win over her potential mother-in-law. The world, however, had other plans. Melodie and Issac end up have to travel to his parents separately, Melodie going up ahead of Issac. That’s when things begin to go wrong.
By the time Issac arrives his mother has come up with the ‘perfect’ plan to get between the two of them. Melodie after reaching breaking point flees back to her father’s home to try to understand and accept her fate.
Is this the end for Melodie and Issac?? I guess you’ll have to read it for yourself and see!!
For a book entitled ‘The Wedding’ you’d assume that it’s all romance, hearts, flowers and happiness; for some authors this would be right; for this particular author: no. Why write all hearts and flowers when you can grab a big stick and stir in a whole heap of emotional turmoil to spice things up! Bravo Laura, bravo!
This book is mainly written from Melodie’s POV, but it also does have some chapters that are written from the POV of Melodie’s Mother-In-Law to be, this offers a whole new perspective to this incredible story.
Laura’s writing style is a compelling, cleverly thought-out web of love, lust, emotion, lies and sass. Laura gives you all the details, all the emotion that you need to be drawn into Melodie’s world and feeling as though you are a part of her life and part of every event that takes place.
This was an incredible follow up to Finding Melodie. I loved every page and I would highly recommend these book to anyone looking for a rom-com feel good read.
I’m not a big reader of this genre, in fact, I can count on one hand the amount of romantic comedies I’ve read this year. Limp Dicks and Saggy Tits is incredibly funny, when I say funny, I mean laugh-out-loud funny. I was reading this in my doctors waiting room and being stared at by everyone because I was sat in the corner laughing so much I was crying!
In Limp Dicks and Saggy Tits, we meet Lizzie, who is Lizzie? Lizzie is a 50-year-old single star of this book. She has decided single life isn’t for her. The problem is just how does she re-enter the world of Dating? (Seriously, I’m not even 40 and I wouldn’t have a clue!)
We follow the newly divorced Lizzie as she begins the self-discovery and dating chapter of her life. She starts off by taking dating advice from her best friend Joe. Lizzie takes that on board but then decides to throw caution to the wind and be spontaneous. It’s this spontaneity that leads her to Scotland and eventually to Kent.
Lizzie finds herself in some pretty funny and sometimes crazy situations. Pat the Cat and the weight loss item are just a couple of the funny bits! If I was in Lizzie’s situation I don’t know if I’d be any better or different either.
Ronan is a Scottish enigma. He brings so much to this story; he really does add to the funniness. The castle in Scotland, WOW, what a place! Although that’s not what I expected to hear happening within its grounds though 😉
Tracie’s writing style has adapted to fit this genre well. Tracie has written a light-hearted, funny story of self-discovery and life after divorce. I think the mix of funny, laugh out loud moments and romance is well suited to these characters and this story.
If you want a book that is light-hearted, giggle-worthy and captivating then I would certainly recommend Limp Dicks and Saggy Tits.
Even if romantic comedies aren’t normally your thing, this book is definitely worth taking a chance on.

Have a destination wedding, they said. The mountains are so romantic, they said. They’ve obviously never been a runaway bride.
Olivia Love has it all. She’s rich, spoiled, and about to marry the man of her dreams—until she witnesses her fiancée with someone else, sending her on a little run. Down the side of a mountain. In her wedding dress.
When she finds a cabin in the woods, her relief is short-lived at discovering it to be empty. No phone, no heat, and no way back to her perfect little life. That is until a gun-toting mountain man fills the space and sends her heart rate skyrocketing.
Carter Fitzwilliam likes the simple things in life. His sheep farm, his privacy, and man’s best friend are all he needs until a smart-mouthed beauty in a white dress breaks into his cabin and threatens to complicate the hell out of everything.
She’s lost, looking for help. He’s hiding, only wanting to be left alone. Will she be the one person his heart needs to find?
If you like outrageously funny characters, sexy heroes, and a juicy opposites-attract story than you’ll love the first book in the Lost & Found series, Cabin Fever is the first standalone, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy book in the Lost & Found series by Elizabeth Lynx.
As the synopsis states Olivia Love has chosen to do a runner. And what a day to do it on, her wedding day!! But considering what she has seen could you blame her? I know I can’t!
For Olivia, the biggest downside is that she has to run down a mountain! When Olivia finds a cabin that she thinks is empty she feels relief. That relief is short-lived when she realises there’s no phone, no heating, nothing! And then a gun-toting man turns up, making her feel even more uneasy!
Carter lives in his cabin on his own and enjoys his simple life as a sheep farmer. He doesn’t want anyone else in his life except his dog and his sheep. So when he returns home to find Olivia in his cabin, he’s not sure what to think, except to get rid of her one way or another.
Cabin Fever is a witty, funny, sarcastic romantic story of an accidental meeting of two individuals. It’s not an insta-love story, these two have their own demons to overcome and they need to learn to trust before they can accept any kind of love that is offered.
The pieces of Cabin Fever begin to come together a little like a jigsaw puzzle, as they begin to slot into place it makes the desire to know more becomes stronger, making you want to read just one more chapter… then another and another
The characters are deceptive in that they appear to be so alike, but yet they so different.
I think that Elizabeth has got the mix of romance, wit, sarcasm, and humour spot on. She also includes a few twists and turns to keep the readers on their toes and to keep them guessing at what might happen next.
I couldn’t stop reading this book. I can’t wait for the next installment in the Lost and Found Series.

He came to fix her pipes. She never expected him to steal her heart.
Heidi White was an aspiring baker, tried her best to make others happy, and secretly lusted at the hot guy in her neighborhood. The pipe burst in her basement, so she had to put the baking on hold to find a plumber, fast. When the sexy guy from around the corner showed up to fix her leak, all she could do was stare at the size of his wrench.
Max Brighton was a single dad, business owner, and hadn’t dated in years. His plumbing business began to struggle, and he became desperate to keep things afloat. He believed he found the perfect solution for his problems when the beautiful woman in his neighborhood asked him to fix her pipes. But the job was harder than he expected and he wasn’t talking about her pipes.
We meet Heidi, the daughter of two senators. Heidi is genuine, honest and sometimes naive. She’s not that naive when it comes to her parents though; she knows that they manipulate her to get what they want.
Heidi lives on her own and when her house springs a leak, she calls her parents, they tell her they’ll get someone out to sort it and they do. Max.
Max is a plumber, he goes to Heidi’s to fix her pipes, but soon discovers that her pipes are worse than he originally thought. Once Max realises who Heidi is, he tries to orchestrate a way to not be the one doing the work.
Dirty Secret is a funny, witty, sarcastic, sweet and steamy read.
The characters are well thought out and they all fit the story perfectly. Each one shows both their good and bad traits, which makes each of them realistic and more endearing.
I love how Elizabeth manages to write such emotional but light-hearted stories, that always grab your attention and pull you in from the very beginning. Each page I turned I fell further into Heidi and Max’s world. Elizabeth’s writing style made me feel every bit of part of their lives as the other characters are.
If you want a fun, flirty and entertaining read then I highly recommend Dirty Secret.

This is the first book by AJ Love that I’ve read, and it won’t be the last.
This is a romantic comedy set in and around college.
Blakes decision to go for accommodation provided by the college starts off as a bit of a disaster, when the accommodation office assigns her accommodation with five guys. That’s right Blake is a female! The accommodation office didn’t realise this and placed her with Five Guys.
After realization she’s stuck there, she tries to make the best of a bad situation. Blake soon realises that one of her roommates is her usual type of guy, she also knows that she can’t go there. If she did and it went wrong life would become awkward, very awkward.
This Ain’t Love is an ingenious mix of fun, realism, attraction, temptation and a whole heap of denial! The book is packed with laugh out loud moments, that had me giggling to myself and had other people giving me odd stares in the canteen at work!
The characters are easy to relate to and very realistic, they interact well together and they each bring their own dynamic to the overall story. Blake and Cameron’s chemistry is palpable, they seem to rub each other the wrong way but at the same time they compliment each other’s personalities too.
The story sucked me in quickly and held me there right alongside Blake and Cameron until the very end. I was made to feel every bit a part of their story. I’m glad I’ve had the chance to meet Blake and Cameron.
This Ain’t Love is a great way to start this series. I’m looking forward to the next instalment.
If you’re looking for a funny, hot, sweet romantic comedy then I highly recommend This Ain’t Love.

My name is Melodie and I’m in love with a guy, but he doesn’t know. He walks by every day, I catch him staring, listening to me sing and play my guitar. I don’t even know his name. Crazy I know but I can’t stop thinking about Office Guy. That’s what I secretly call him, Office Guy. We’ve never even spoken to each other, but then one day he walks up to me and…
.•My Review •.
Finding Melodie is a short and a very sweet book.
Melodie is a pink haired Pixie, she loves music and helping “lost causes”, she’s a bartender and a busker, she lives in London with her two gay roommates. In the past she has always picked the wrong guys, she’s been hurt more than once, but she can’t help falling for the wrong ones. Even after that she still believes in love and romance.
Melodie busks in London, in a popular area and as she still by, she makes up her own stories about them and their lives. Some people even have their own names; like Office Guy. She has quite the crush on him and has often fantasised about Office Guy being her dream man. One day he approaches her and asks for help. He asks Melodie to play a certain song whilst he proposes to his girlfriend. Melodie is kinda heartbroken and a little bit jealous, but she puts a smile on her face and agrees to help him.
Office Guy is a real geeky nerd, he’s a bit of a workaholic and the off shoot of that results in heartache but also in an unsuspected friendship and adventure.
Then she watches as things take an unexpected turn and decided that she has to help Office Guy.
This book focuses on Melodie and Office Guy’s friendship and follows their journey.
I’m not going to discuss the plot further for fear of giving too much away.
The characters are incredibly endearing, I couldn’t help but feel like a part of their story. The character show depth and realism, they interact well together.
The book was a pleasure to read, it is packed full of laugh out loud moments, emotion and a little bit of hotness too. During the plan to win back the woman Office Guy loves, each of them discovers more about themselves, their friendship grows, and their feelings change.
Laura’s writing style makes it is very easy to get caught to win the characters’ lives and their feelings. The emotion contained within its pages consumed me as I was reading this. Finding Melodie is a tale of unexpected love, it shows that you can find love, even when you least expect it.
