Pick of the Day

Tease Me by Sarah Sanders

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Usually we’re a little leery about picking up an erotic novella because the novella may not have enough length for a roman...

Made In London by Clare Lydon

⭐⭐⭐

Light-hearted humour is Lydon’s style of writing but in this one she is firmly in the romcom space, so even the meetings and encounters between the MCs are impossible and slapstick-y.

Heidi Hughes, a photographer, decided to take the exceptionally brave step of becoming a single mom and now has an eighteen-month-old daughter, Maya. Now that Maya is older, Heidi is ready to get back on the horse and try and balance motherhood, career and hopefully, a relationship. Eden Price is perfectly happy being single, thank you. A successful creative director of a marketing agency, Eden likes order and is quite certain that she doesn’t want the chaos that accompanies kids in her life. Except that she hadn’t quite factored in Heidi and a mind-melting kiss with her.

The thing we totally loved in this book was the determined effort both the MCs make to have a relationship though there are more than enough false starts to derail it even before it can begin. We get that the book is aiming to be just a comedic outing, but we’d have loved to see Eden and Maya actually bonding. Without that, the Heidi-Eden relationship doesn’t feel complete. We really, really liked Heidi. While Eden is not particularly likeable, especially in her first response to getting to know about Maya (and at other times too), she redeems herself by sticking it out and putting in effort to pursue the thing with Heidi.

Lydon’s writing is always fun so this is a good enough read for the space (no angst, no depth, just fluff and fun) it aims to occupy.
